Great Lot of fun Got Back yesterday. It was Nice Little Vaca- have you guys consummated a relationship. No that is not Chrysler not cool. I'm offended you'd even say that actually. Yeah that's that's pretty messed up to let you guys you know about enes faith faith in Konya because you're a fan of Konya that you've gone devout or is that just you're making a joke. You don't WanNa talk about your sex life. I'm just saying man. What Base God's three always think? He's I think he's homer. I'm sure well good feel. She sounded very happy. When I spoke I spoke to her. I'll talk to Ian about work and I say say hi to. Can I say her name in wildcards find while guard? I can't say her name. Her name is wildcard. Okay that is legally her name so I say say hi to wildcard Because she helped in with something. He worked on as a teller. Thank you and wish you well. And he goes oh she can hear you. She's on speaker. He had me on speaker the whole time in had me on speaker. I was having an elaborate conversation about. Were and him out speaker for the whole time with wildcard in the room with him pro. You had. We had speaker the whole time. I mean what do you think in in not only is it rude to a normal person but I'm a celebrity. You can't speakerphone me you are you signed an NDA you signed an NDA. She didn't sign it. Classified stuff. Where you guys It doesn't matter everything I say is privileged. Well okay so I wasn't planning on having a full phone call with you. I'd called you because I needed a code to access certain account and so I had you on Speaker to type in the code and then you continued the conversation which was very lovely. It's always nice to chat Klutz then I did not switch off the slow in saying he did not expect it to Chit Chat. I wasn't Chitchat. We're talking about work. You were just going on and on about how. How's your day has the weather and I'm like I gotta go my you're doing schtick but what you actually did is. You didn't click the speaker button bond so you respect is talking about privilege information that you've signed an NDA. I did live the phone and I carried it into another room but then I walked back and said. Oh here she is. Is that what happened? Yes because when I was on the speaker and I send Sam. That's when you a out her. You can't Epi Joe I'll I'll go back to wildcard oblique. I'm pretty sure I've said her name already on the show but no I was. I asked her. I says Sam in there really I said Let's throw it. What do you think I said? What do you think about the fact that Iran has me on and she said I gotta be honest? I was a little thrown out when he put you on speaker. I thought it was rude. She told me she said she was very paying. My respects went for big. Time is like in your out Samsung. I could feel the low of the conversation and then I walked back in the room as that happened at the same time. I would not breach your trust like that. Come on come on well. I I do feel kinship to salmon. I do feel like she's part of the circle of trust by you've got to come on. What if I told you about Now might kidding. There's also weaken all tests. You are a big speakerphone guy. All three of us. Yeah Yeah but I'm the boss especially when like shredders right next to us. Everything everything I decide what privilege and there was the hardest thing I've ever seen Ian actually at one time when you had talking to us you had speaker on in the car with the windows. Down shredder was barking in the back. And you were slurping string ever had in my life. I wish that I had a recording line. But like you can hear Dan la but in you can really hear when he's laughing. I guess because I had to hand the phone to Dan. I just lost respect. I don't know I was just. I asked what is going on on good. I didn't know anything funny was happening at all. Okay well good weekend. It's good to be back. It'd be good to have you back I appreciate that. Thank you another funny thing to happen. A little drama and the backstage is that I didn't WanNa say what it was because I don't want to insult anyone about sex comment. I do I frame this because I don't want to insult I don't WanNa insult you know what I'm saying. I know what you're saying. Do I just say I mean. Yeah no you could say Dan or not. Doing Zach was looking at something involving certain people and made a certain obviously see. I don't I don't want to insult the people who don't deserve it but we were reviewing something involving females. That Zach was handling. I mean it's probably obvious and Sack just goes. I'm just going to have to say what it is. Just let it out. Yeah just let it out. I'm sorry I'm apologized to anyone. I don't share that opinion. This Zack's opinion and that's why it's funny because Zach was handling all the applications for the bachelor season two with Hilas brother and say Zach. How's it looking our the applicants and he says he goes honestly they're just a bunch of dogs and we were all shocked by that or like a bunch of dogs. I wasn't here so I didn't hear it. So it's so graphic you refer to women as aw always I look. I was trying to be humorous. Okay came out raw. They weren't my type about that. I mean there are quite a age. I didn't I didn't find him attractive. I'm sorry okay well. I think it was funny. It was shocking. He knows. Funny Sam Sam She I said what do you think about Zach Hoy? I think what happened is that I ask you what's happening with that. And what do we have so far? And you said exact says we just have a bunch of dogs in the words. Speak Words of Zack. They're just a bunch of dog. I don't mean to be degraded like why it was fun. But Wow Zach emily but then but then I was surprised girlfriend said what do you think about that? I I asked her. She said well. Frankly I'd have to see the pictures fan of I thought it was overly harsh. I thought it was in there. You gotta stay. I have a certain type. Apparently humans but your type. I mean my current my girlfriend. Now she's my type described Long Brown hair. Petit Petit go on. I think that's everybody's type just as a certain like personality tree. I don't know for you or Butman. How personality threat picture you can tell you can tell are you are you. Are you tits or ask you why would I ask? You? I'm an accident. You're an ass man. Yeah so do you not consider. I've always wanted us about Asman. Do you not consider boobs? Like what is the ratio if you look at a girl and you say her ass is like this good but her. Boobs are not liking her boobs so like are you willing to like knock boobs at all for acid like fat or like. How does that work out? Yeah you could put it that way. It's all ask you don't care about the boobs I mean. Of course you want you know something you don't you you're acquire or not lot on the BOOBS. No yeah no so if a girl has like a two out of ten boobs. What's two out of ten BOOB? Well I don't know everyone has their own preference on boobs. It's hard to say because for example for me sizes in a factor. I don't care about sides but I'm I'm more of a tit man myself. Okay and I. It's not about size is more about the perkiness in the nipple and all that you'll for example as credible boobs. You wouldn't expect but I always say. She has secret boobs as Dan. Those things are fucking. You wouldn't expect it but like Shh. I'm just trying to get the hardest that we're back up on this because I too consider myself and ask me and I would say yeah. I mean the booths. You know as long as it's nipples. Whatever see for me. So what's not game like someone like Flat back. Kill Your Vibe. If there's a flat ass but Yeah kind of does see for me on if there's if I don't like the tits then I'm not interested and I hate to how shallow I am. I've been with girls that I didn't like I didn't like Iraq and that was but to me. I'm just it kills the attraction and so obviously younger I would say The boobs were bigger. Deal but I as a as a theory. You go from boobs to ask and then you become a leg man leg matters you get older. I've remained staunchly a tit man. My whole I'm consistent. I mean that's not to say I don't like a fat ass but for me the tits is what seals the deal. Okay and then the ask for me is like whatever the tests Has To be there now in you chime in other everybody's giving their preference what about like legs able. That's the table. It's or as are you even watching the show there. No legs on the table. Ted Sir I really love a good personality. Why do we even have him? Like what do you have a Mike did? Let's put their about in We gotTA GET ROBOT. And he's way more interesting than really in he's In the factory right. Now say that. And do you refuse to answer Do you refuse to answer this question? I know I did. I said I. I like legs and 's Okay I'll go with you. Got Three men and then just to emphasize because I wanNA understand this if tits are weak but the asses fat. You're good if the week you're out. Yeah I mean I gotta be honest. I've been in that exact scenario before so interesting going out with a girl but I've stopped seeing a girl it was it was it wasn't like the deal breaker but it certainly was a factor. You need that out. Would you guys eat ass won't be says no but no Zach what he'd asked I'm sure of it probably sauce on their heat that you're need asked them what their sources so no. No no like like a clean like freshly shower shower. No really no I. I've eaten ass out of the shower. There's nothing wrong with her. But I feel like you. Guys are being so repressed. That you're like so repulsed you'll need asset of the shower. I've eaten as was the last time you ask. It sounds like the flu. I wasn't doing Do you like your ass being inside. No I don't go anywhere near that. I had a girlfriend college. She always tried to put a finger my ass. You know I was always out. It was always like none but that but I'm not trying to. I'm not trying to shame anyone. I think I just wasn't ready for it. I mean that was. That was my first like sexual experience like I lost my virginity. This girl and she was a lot more experienced. The me not to Brag but you know and she but she but I wasn't ready for the finger and ask your little older view. Spread those g you explore. So she didn't ask permission. Now I gotTa tell you. I can't believe I'm admitting this but Exact same thing for me I girl has ever with. She got without asking and It it really pissed me off fucked up. She did she did. She penetrate you or did she just go for it. It's just kind of went for it and I pretty much immediately was like what the fuck you doing it takes. I mean to actually penetrate. You'll take some F force. Yeah and she so. She actually forced her way in. How deep did a finger to elect the first knuckle? I don't know it. Was you know it was just so she? She just started like caressing my asshole. I think she was probing to see how comfortable I was. I mean this is a long time ago. was High School. I mean so I don't remember How many knuckle girl mine was in college? I didn't even know people did that. In High School I had no knowledge of diving butthole was a little bit older more experienced So yeah I mean almost the same situation you just described. I'm not saying I wouldn't enjoy it these days because I've been around the block and you know you want something a little more exciting. I'm talking directly to go. But at the time when you're when you're having your first sexual experience like That's a lot that's all to take process. Yeah it's a lot to process exactly. Were you scared or like no no no no? I was just she. I think actually what I think happened. Is She touched the ass and then she said. Do you like that and I said no no. That's that's wild did it. Wasn't that wild. The grand scheme of things. It's not that I suppose crazy. When I the first time I had sex the condom broke. That's way the condom broke pretty crazy. That's all got I've been there. I think Kirstein though that would be really scary. It was the first time I think it only happened to me twice in my life or the condom broke but one was the very first time. That's weird lock shoots. She didn't want to take my virginity this girl because I she asked if I'd had sex and I said no and then she so she's like She's just doing whatever it was like. None of those I want to do it. The condom broke and she's like. Oh we should do it. It's a sign that there's no such thing as she said she when she saw the condom broke. She's like oh it's a sign because she didn't want to take my virginity and I was like there's no such thing as a son. I was nineteen everybody around the already lost virginity but when at what point did it break like like immediately put it on and I did like one thrust and then wochit broke damn straight bill or no no but it was just one it was just it was in and out and broke and then. I just put another one interesting story. Yeah so you guys Dan your ass man. That doesn't need us. You ever slip a finger in the ASS. No I'm not yeah. I don't I don't believe you. I don't believe you okay. I don't believe the year Aspen. You during the touch. Don't eat that so you don't finger and I'm not. I'm not an asshole man on an ad on Hitman but I'm not into Nipple Zach no the nipple is way more integral okay. I agree with you on this one and sack. You are an and you agree way. What is the question? The question is if your man it is not here. He's talking about like feet. He's not even listening even listening. I go what do you think what are we talking about? Are you listening in? I'm I'm watching your mouse move zone. What's the question if a nipple is okay? If you're a man if you're an ass man and you are apparently in asman right. Do you think that to say I says Dan? You don't need to ask you. Don't finger us how you and ask. That's like saying I'm a tip man but I don't care about the nipple. I see so you think. Dan is played with an asshole. Yeah probably so just confirming. He's fucked with an asshole. I'm just saying if you like an ASS. Yeah exactly what I'm saying if you if you like be like something you like something. Dan has shut down. I don't know I'm not lying. I mean Dan doesn't like wh what was it is accused of lying. You got really upset about what was it like a daily occurrence Nano there. Something of him. Looking INSTAGRAM'S I go down that again because I said he's lying. Well maybe you should be more honest. I won't cues you have lying. I into lie about these zero motivation to ask you to be honest. Yeah absolutely I was just open about a bunch of my first sexual experience. Put a finger my ass. You're right Dan. I'll choose to believe what happened if you came across a fake. But are you guys resting those implants or whatever? Yeah seems a little weird. But I don't know Jesus thing about the ass is that it's the muscle so I think the attraction of asks is that like is that like you can do stuff with it like I think when you have sex with the fat ass. She can do more with that muscle and so when you have a fake muscle. It's kind of just dead weight I guess I'll say as a tit man. Implants for me are media turnoff really. Yeah Yeah I don't really like it either. I mean May- maybe the really good ones where you can't tell I feel like I can always tell facts you like fake titties. Sure I mean when I was a when I was younger I guess I liked it but as it grew and yeah I don't know the thing is. Victory is a good and clothing you like. Oh checkout but once you're naked they just throw just everywhere I really gives you get older like you appreciate more natural or natural beauty I covered a lot of ground Also have to report the. Dan is bitterly jealous of my deal. Three credits hold on. He's grabbing some mail. I keep on playing three. I just WanNa keep reporting on that. I'm on Rift Ninety nine and I am paragon level. Seven hundred fifty and I'm happy to report them my highest crit. Dan listened closely MS for three trillion. And I was just saying that you're bitterly jealous of my high Diablo. Chris you Dan. Three three trillion. That's right what? How high of Ukraine Diablo three? I don't don't want to Brag. You haven't gotten this deep Doing schtick he didn't know anything about 'em thanks Dan and then finally before we move onto our headline stories. I want to say that I love talking about this because I discovered that Bloomberg Michael Bloomberg really triggers. Dan and they hate Michael Bloomberg I know. I endorsed Bernie Sanders already for president donated a thousand dollars but Bloomberg is going to be on the debate stage tomorrow for the first time and I'm going to be watching very closely to see how he performs but He's pulling number two nationally. He passed sleepy. Joe Biden that happens sloppy Joe Biden. It just came out of nowhere waiting to do spent like three June thirty million dollars and he's going to spend two billion that Ed because before he wasn't any pulse wasn't like well it was in Psalm. No he yeah. He's he's been steadily climbing. And I think I think all these campaigns and even this this fuck Jerry one. It's all working because he everybody's just Michael Bloomberg on the mind you know and when I put on the news it's always Michael Bloomberg this Michael Bloomberg attacked Bernie Bernie attacked Bloomberg and I just saw today in the latest poll. He's pulling number two. That is shocking behind Bernie nationally. And he's ahead of sloppy job. That is not shocking. Well Joe Biden in the beginning of this race was number one by far right until people hurt him. I get what was that new. One that Vic Burger did that it of the wise lying. Can WE WATCH THAT VIDEO I don't think we watch it on the show. Let me put out on. Why why? Why why. I Love Joe Biden. He's like such a mean machine that that that that and I love kids sitting on my lap and I've loved kids jumping accepted. Bernie's apology you're talking. And why are you doing that? Why wasn't his apology? Vice President main come down. He's really not. I think he's really not nervous. He shot again. He's like wow. This is goal there reporter nervous. Now get four discussed honestly. I. I don't hate too much on this clip. Those people can be annoying. Yeah but the way he reacted. I mean. Hello you're going to be president. You get the shit. Every day trips visit is and then the light. This is a good sound bite. I want the wide version of this claiming yes. So what do you guys think about Michael Bloomberg being on the stage tomorrow? Dan In ant go. I'm glad that he's going to be there because I mean I think a large part of why he's doing so well is he's throwing half a billion dollars on ads that just attack trump relentlessly and everything and people outside of New York City aren't really familiar with him or who he is Or the fact that he's a little short mandalit annoying measly dude. He's five eight by the way. Yes as we discussed last week Not Five forest but So he was the mayor of New York right. He was the mayor of New York for three terms. And that's a long time. How is he perceived? The Mayor Good Well cleaned up the city. The city was dangerous. Place lots of crime. I mean New York. That's what New Yorkers say. Did you live in New York? During the time he was married. Dan I okay. So then they'll based on people who lived in New York at the time They said very nice things about Michael Bloomberg Dan Dan Zak wrote Dan when he starts hating. Go ahead then. All of the Black and Brown kids who grew up in New York City under his rule Feel that way about him was asleep at the actually I think he I think he has really p pulse really well among black voters. I saw that which is weird. I agree because this whole stop and Frisk thing is definitely his biggest quote controversy. But I have a theory about Michael Bloomberg that I'm GonNa lay on you right now Dan. So all these conservative trump voters. I mean there's a lot I'm not saying. All trump voters are racist okay. I'm not saying that I would say the majority of trump voters are good kind sweetheart at people they just want the best for this country there are racist people though or might maybe not even racist people though but they look at the media's like Oh just another good guy or maybe just another white guy being accused of being racist. I think there's a lot of people like that. Who will almost think this? Stop and Frisk thing could even help Michael Bloomberg. What would with people that are trump supporter? Yes there's a lot of people who are disentis Enchanted with trump. But they don't see a better alternative. There's a lot of people that are disenchanted with trump. Because you know he has a ninety five percent approval rating with Republican. I think there's a lot of people there who don't see a better option and the Democrats because they see Bernie Sanders as too radical. Because he's way too easy to vilify although I love Bernie and I'm not agreeing with them and I don't think he's a boogeyman. Think Socialism Capitalistic Socialism has. I don't know why they always point. Venezuelans Shit like the Ad Nazi Germany. It's like hello. All of Scandinavia is is having this. And they're like the happiest countries on earth the most like flourishing Societies like we just ignore the fact that Scandinavia GSAS but anyway. I agree with Bernie's dream. But he's so easy to vilify in this whole brainwashing campaign to make label as in some some crazy socialist autocrat of already seen it they go look at Venezuela. The price of bread went up to one billion dollars. That's what Bernie Sanders wants for you. It's like this is stupid but anyway a lot of these people who are maybe soured on trump or independent or on the fringe of the Republican Party will look at a guy like Michael Bloomberg who used to be used to be a Republican. And he they see him as an outsider. Because they're like oh well. He's just being accused of racism like trump. They're going to be like that's my kind of guy. Also a lot of people wanted a successful businessman when they chose trump but Bloomberg is the actual successful businessman. Bloomberg is most definitely. But I don't know anything about him so I'm not saying one way or another. I do want to watch the debate. All I know about Bloomberg is A. He was a long-term mayor of New York City. Very Rich Guy. He has some controversies about. Stop and Frisk and I'm I'm looking for. I'm sure they're GONNA ask them a lot of questions about on the debate stage so we'll see but I do think that there's I think there's a lot of people from the trump camp will like Michael Bloomberg who would never vote for Bernie thoughts. Dan Delusional really trump people love the trump supporters. Love trump. Look they're not gonNA switch over. Are you kidding me? He's GonNa get annihilated by trump if he becomes only you think Bernie will do landslide really landslide win for trump nominee. Why amateur agree with you there? Because they're the same but Bloomberg is. Have you seen any like interviews with him or now? That's why I'm really tomorrow night. Okay well let's conversation about it after the debate because you're going to see who Michael Bloomberg is and He's like a really kind of wiry. He's Jewish right. I believe he's Jewish. Yeah because he he has this whole like New York Jew thing where today's the day he is Not a very charismatic. He was the mayor for eleven years. I mean that's that's a pretty long stint as as a as a public service at a and this is a very rich man this he was already super rich and he dedicated eleven years of his life to public service. I mean that's pretty admirable. Do you disagree. I do but we're also minutes. We should go to break. We should go to break. But what's not admirable about dedicating eleven years of your life to public service? I when Admiral admirable for trump to do that I get I mean ultimately it's just like it's such a a loaded question you. The thing is the presidency has this prestige in power. I mean mayor of New York obviously is a prestigious slimly procedures. It's more it's one of the most powerful political offices in this country is more powerful than probably the vast majority of governorships of states. I agree it is. It is definitely a powerful seat but it's far cry from the presidency. Sure well he's trying to buy his way into that one too on there you go well. Let's go to break when we come back. We're going to have the taste test while I can't wait for that to be honest with you guys. We finally at the beginning because we'd want the Burgers to rot so I'm going to show you now.

Well we have got to all of the major fast food restaurants that offer a beyond meat option and we are doing a blind taste test before me I have starting I have a Carl's junior What do they call their burger? The All star superstar or star. Whatever it is off crap Burger. Yeah I've got a real beef and I got a fake beef and I'm GonNa Taste both. I'm going to tell you which I think is the me and I'm GonNa tell you which one tastes better now. I'm going to tell you for sure if I'm wrong I'll fucking eat my hat but see one. Dan is the is the fake meat. Or I'm the fucking pope interesting and see to Israel. Meet MME wrong then I'll just give it. I'll just invest all my money. Fake me at right now but but but I could be wrong. I mean it'd be awfully funny if I was wrong so I'm GONNA go ahead and take a bite of what I think is the real meat I see too. I mean that's real neat. I mean here. I'll show you guys what I'm seeing. I mean this is fake me. That's real meat. Obviously right Mendoza's meet all right here. We go. I'm just eating a burger. Now Awesome. We only do one by her. Said that real people love to watch me much. Say to Carl's surprisingly Extremely expensive really fast food. Yeah tell me the one that picked it up. How much did you end up spending their forty one dollars? Well that was but we bought. What four of each compared to three meet for Veggie be seven seven sandwiches for forty dollars compared to Burger King? Those twenty three dollars defensive. Carl's junior that's what a sandwich Cost the Vaclav Burger King. Sign up for half. The price is disturbing to see America so back in check our old tier list on fast food and we did rape Burger King. What was draft? It was like it. Was We all the way down there. Yeah Yeah Okay I am now taking by so just to Sorry to pause you but is that Canadian also. Yes yes so. Did you guys all take a bite of see too much and right now do they know. Damn what's what yeah we we didn't. We didn't Randomize it back here so I'm only clown that doesn't know the only clown but you knew I mean I not taking a by. Can you really not join the Mike I can not no? I can't yeah. I know it's a joke but it's also yeah well that's definitely the Veggie the second one Okay well you did correctly. Identify them that being said the taste is on point game for that veggie actually might say that It tastes better. It's weird because like these fast food burgers there. They don't use that much meat because it's expensive captain. And so I and I know this is really weird to say but I think this has more of a meat flavor funding the actual meat. Because they're just they're just. It's a really small patty and you just can't get that much out of it. Prince smokey flavor right. Thank you Thank you suck Zach and so so I bet really good. A lot of people are probably wondering within not Vegetarian. Right. I'm mostly vegetarian. Meet like once a week. I'm very proud of the meat gains. I've I'm very proud of myself. I've cut back on meat a lot. Since my Darby's mute mountain how often like once a week once a week? Yeah no I don't eat meat. I only eat meat when we go out to eat. Well I I genuinely think. Let me let me take another take. Now you're done to it. Let me just WANNA be sure. There's more to come. I want to share. We can't call this a taste. Smell them you're not even doing anything you can take your burger yellow. I was thinking maybe I'll wait for all the vegetarian and then I tried them all and tell you which one's the best that's exciting. Let's do that or did you. Guys yeah I can taste Fabio incredible approach. I like you know I like I do. I like it I like. It can't tell them well. It's pretty good approach. It might be a little slow after we've already tasted every one of them. I think I'm with you with the impossible. Burger having a little more kick to it really and thank you. I'm doing hey to. Are they the same price? Yeah are you also on the rap? Now these sack did you have a preference. Saving their randomized. I like the one you like. Okay I'm GonNa tell you right off the bat on fat ver- I'm not having such an obvious conclusion. Look way more similar. So that's F. One you got a good luck at that EELA. Then that's F- to they look way more similar that being said F one I'm GonNa call is the Veggie F. One is the Veggie. Okay all right. One is the Veggie Burger. This is fat Burger which I guess is not a national thing. So maybe we should extrap- like I don't maybe not everybody knows what fabric or is this a little bit of like a higher quality? It's not quite like a triathlon. Because to your point it will be too slow You know there's been sitting out for a minute and I don't think the meat stands up time as well as the venue but I'm not a fan of Fat Burger. They put mustard on it. I don't like Brad is much mustard. No under sweet relish on it. I mean the fog. I'm here I don't like it. Also far and away the most expensive it was for seven Burgers. I think. Sixty seven dollars. What yeah. I heard that that's quite an investment we made on the segment. Now I'll say right off the Bat Carl's junior vastly Superior Burger Whoa. I'm just being that that was F. One here that was F- too so this is f. one. This is what I thought was the the Veggie Burger but it looks so much like meet my God. If I didn't have the comparison I guess I couldn't even tell this wasn't that's F. Two right there at one. This is definitely not me and I don't know why they seem to be using fake cheese as well. Let's not melted these. It's kind of watery lottery flow. I don't like it is f. One VEGGIE At one is the VEGGIE. Okay there's no there's no getting meeting past you You Know Zach is right. It is kind of water. That's weird did you try the calls. I try to I try and both calls way better way. Better is really good So I will say first of all fatburger not a fan. I'm into second of all took the longest to make to write in. Yes took them a while to get boiling. It in water can cheese as well. They do pass out so here. I will say about fat Burger Aesthetically. That's insane. How looks like me? Yeah you want to get close up with that again like if you don't see that next to anything that just looks like ground. Beal that being said It does tastes like meat. But I guess I don't like Fat Burger so I I don't like either of these to be honest with you. I don't like it. I don't like it so you know still could inform me. Although the aesthetically is very very very good so run the Bun Sucks like the crows junior really soft and uh that. Bunn was still quite frankly so this is a boycott king. Boy Golly you can you know it's funny I saw the Veggie one and I was like. Oh that's obvious and I saw the real one in. It looks so shitty that it's obvious the real one so be one. Okay so we go. These took forever to make order came with a very long time. So Light Carl's junior. I think that I'm GONNA stop this. This is the fake one. I'm saying be to be too is fake. Yeah okay then be. One is is a real burger but I gotta tell you like that meet done. Look that good either at least on camera identical they do. I mean beat the fake one. Well don't tell me yet but I know right so anyway. Let's try the what I think to be the fake one. I B Two here. We go everybody. Listen closely as I much. This Mike. A lot of expectation but this one because again burger king after a tastes like gasoline. Not Give them in chiming in our. You're not trying exactly what you're not saying anything. I'm just. He said that February tastes like water. About Carl's junior. Who's the best of our and did you have a preference between real and fake like the real one right? You had said that now I remember okay so now. We rented Burger King E so doing didn't e- e- they said be no e- so I'm going in for what I perceive to be. The real one Burger King so here. We go both are very flavourless. Yeah King is trash. It tastes like trash you know they say in the Burger King Lab. Because I I tried that one be too was I right by the way to the faith. B two is the fake. Yes so when I tried that I was like. Wow this is really flavourless. And not good night tasted this. Sounds like Oh? They're emulating the meat and the Burger King Lab. They're like we can. We can make this to flavor because our normal meet doesn't taste good so by far Carl's January was the best. There's more there's We have one more but that was the end of the Burgers So our last option. Here is some tacos from Del. Taco because they are For their Taco meat. They have beyond me. So let me bring those out. I'll say Burger King. I think they both the same. Yeah I can so in summary Carl's junior but first of all the Burger and the impossible burger are far and away the Best Burger on the sable. The impossible Burger. I would say taste as good or even better than the Real Burger. Good amount of everything to like. The Burger King is too dry and empty and then fatburger is too packed with dance. Not He just reeled in horror. Got Bad feeling about this right now. I will say as you're serving TACOS did not keep as well as the burgers bring. Well I'll be the judge of that so that's a beyond Taco. This the reason I know this is they're supposed to be hard tacos and like saw those right now. So that's not a great sign. I will say that Fat Burger Aesthetically nailed nailed it. That's why I was surprised. You should on that one but it looks good. Yeah I'm giving it the highest grade possible for looks. Here's D One. D Two good luck state. Anita hopefully does. Oh maybe I should look at it. Show yeah so this one could be actually more difficult. Which is yeah so far so I just looked like paste. I'M GONNA GUESS. Right off the bat that that's the fake you see it. I mean you don't see much and then this one right. You don't see mush. I got I think I just gotTA taste it. I don't want to open it and inspect it because I feel like they'll be too easy but maybe I will. This has happy two D to Vic I think so but let me taste chilly awful. I don't ever eat at del Taco. Do People like del Taco Dan well. I stopped by there this morning to get these and they had like a breakfast wrap thing and I was hungry so I went for it. I see that was actually pretty good. I was surprised But I can't vouch for the Tacos so detail what I'm calling. The fake meat tastes election. T one real meat. I'm assuming let's go. I just don't like how the season their meat just like. Chile tastes the same. Well I think the one Israel me if I'm wrong them you are not wrong. You're four four my dude you know your meat. You know your way around some meat. Well give it up for me. I it almost tastes like you. Just eating beans right It's not bad for a vegetarian option for vegetarian option Espn'S AC thought. We didn't try it. Oh here here grab a TACO. Make yourself sick might be pushing. Don't eat bell TACO. That was so sick. Donate they'll talk. I'm not GONNA eat it. That's that's a risk. Were not willing to take with you. Ian. Did you say in the meantime. Yeah I've been going back to this. Carl's junior Carl's is the best I tell you what I'm going for the Veggie one. Wow did you go back for the meter? The veggie one in the veggie one We go if you go flavor now to eat burgers and the future. Would you order the beyond one of them? Went to Carl's junior. Yeah yes mom. Out of the four places you like Carlos Abeche so really the veggie. One is the tune called. Junior is by far the best thing on the table. Yeah that makes me very happy to hear on is taking the crown. Hang on. What's crazy and just gonna be totally honest with you guys here okay. That's not an honest review. This is good for them to cross. That turns me on both Boom Papa. Save us. Pro-police bite was too big. Couldn't really taste it. Does you shove your back? Mistake many burgers. Are you eating here in total wanted? Really you know just a little nibble of that became I liked the veggie. One better for sure How for sure for sure that was part I want the Veggie one to win but it is possible that it is because it was sitting there. Forty-five minutes before you ate it. Maybe his better fresh. But I don't think Carl's junior Veggie Burger and I agree. I mean this is bomb. This is really good burger so well Taco is awful. I hated the delta. So did you guys have any Trouble distinguishing or were. You was it easy for you. That is as it was for me. Well then they knew I didn't alright I didn't randomize it for them the Walker. I mean they just look like Shit. They both suck watery. But I I am so impressed by the By Carl's no the the The aesthetic look of the proper one more. Look at that I mean. It is remarkable. Is that One or two is that the F. One is the fake one but I mean to. The meat looks ridiculous. Look at that outs like hanging off the real deal. Too Bad taste ship. You said it was watery. Mine wasn't watery. I don't know what that means. How mine was I. Don't know that can you -able said watery adding mustard and sweet relish. Like what's easier on a burger. What about sweet route? Maybe sweet relished. It's ruining it for me. I'll tell you right now which was ruined it for me. We relish remembered knocking mustard before. You kind of a mustard hater. He's not mustard on hotdogs by itself. Just mustard mustard an egg salad little bit other than that. The fuck out of my play. Well what about in tuna? You're trying to give me a plague tuna salad lake. You know celery relish. No I don't know the way you said. It was just like all right. Let me try this fabric warm is it's not good at the segment over eating now ensure over sweet you kept sweet relish on a burger. It's fucking horrific. Now you WANNA know Some disappointing news. When I was researching this yesterday is that McDonald's has already rolled out these veggie burgers in Europe but has said they have no plans to do so in the United States. What yeah why? Why is that? It's super weird right. Everybody's doing it and but McDonald's needs to be there even doing it. They're just refusing to do it in America for some reason dedicated to not giving option to vegetarian. Why I guess they probably did the research. It's not it's just not worth it to them. Not Fans I agree. I mean I would probably order that occasionally going through. Mcdonald's I of course check because as you'll recall from our tearless you you both rated McDonald's very highly in the fast food tearless Yeah so I wanted to see. If they had something to participate but No veggie options veggie over there. You know what I feel like right now. I feel like I'm GonNa get sick for sure and I'll tell you why I feel like I just created like Mica Burger SARS because there are so many here melding Burg Aroma. Berg Aroma Burger Rama. They're all these little burger. Dna's melting and a wild habitat and they've all been rotting here like you know how they say that. Sars and Corona get started introduce wild animals to bid animals and humans on the virus jumps. So now I've I've introduced this environment with all these different meats and fake needs and you've got viruses jumping back and forth mutating and I think I just I think I'm GonNa die. You know what it might be too. We remember a few weeks ago. We unsealed the Philadelphia jar in the also have escapees land right and from there if I was like a witch motions. Those rare killer ingredients to make a telephone potent potion in here all right so yeah just looked it up to confirm in in Europe. We got a call it the MIC Vegan. And it's Free Burger the MIC mcvay against title remark that Yeah Mic Vegan. Wouldn't go over well here. Your needs to be like haters right Vegan. It's almost like a a naughty word so it needs to be like the MC MC beyond Mc Possible. The do the impossible. Mick possible. That's not a bad titled the MIC. Fake that's awful title dark. Why make no? It's Mac no well why am I got MC MC Donald's so people say maximum papers some people say met and here is the big Mac. Not Big Mick Big Mac. I think hear people say McDonald's I think it's an original thing. Yeah like a like a Irish shame you say MC like McDougal not McDougal. Some people are Makhdoom so people are McDougal. It's news to me. Yeah I feel like I say mattock. It might be a reasonable thing you know. I remember when I was watching pulp fiction and I heard jewel say McDonald's and I thought he was doing schtick But people call it in Europe I guess because in Israel Tay Mcdonalds you donald. Mac SAY TO GET MCDONALD'S C. Sounds like you said McDonald's really Same Mac but say McDonald's again three times. Mcdonald's go ahead McDonald's McDonald's McDonald's McDonald's I don't hear mic. Well how about we? Call it. The the mic the mic the MIC MAC MAC MIC-MAC PATTY WACK. Listen the segment. So what we're GONNA do is cut it but we'd actually we we filmed this segment. I got in here because we didn't want these beggars to rot. What time you got is by these because they may have already rotted I got mine at like nine. Forty five forty five is twelve. Thirty right ran a little bit late. But that's three hours. Well I remember from my food. Service days You could stay unrefrigerated for four hours before it So I think we're I think we're okay hoping you know these burgers have extra shelf life. Yeah well it'd probably full of preservatives. Shit's probably the last time we did. A food tastes as I had like Major. Diarrhea was that the fucking Arby's yeah the roast beef the roast beef. Yeah yeah that'll do it. Well let's hope I mean I kind of already feel it coming on. I'll be sure to update you guys. The first thing you've eaten too not burqas okay. Okay that's good to at least all right. Let's end this and go back to the show. Thank you all for enjoying this very special. Actually podcast presents. Welcome back up. You enjoyed the taste test. I will say they say you shouldn't make sure our calls. I feel you shouldn't makes sure meets either.

As long as they have a good second weekend they'll be on though the break even at least we'll we'll keep an eye on that but what I really WanNa talk about here. Today is something we haven't talked about in a moment I'm happy to announce that your favorite brothers are back. Jake Paul and Logan. Polar both back in the news. Jake Paul first of all launched this absolute scam. J. Paul is just at this point such a Douche It's legit scam at this point more before it was just like shady content right like. I mean first of all. I made a video about him and rice. Doing this. The gambling thing where you pay an open. The mystery box that was giving away one hundred fifty million dollar Beller Mansion. Yeah wonder who won that? Jeff bezos. A- yeah I wonder who We've got icicle. Somebody that feel shit. I've made a huge mistake.

Welcome back again. I just. I don't shit like that anywhere else. Only here after those food segments. I cannot believe what just came out of me. I don't even WanNa talk about it. Okay fucking discussing dude here of all places. Did you get to pad and no no again? Can I tell you not only was I in a hurry? But they were out of pads were they. Were out of pads then. It was a fresh role because I wanted to get some toilet paper. Thrown the Boltzmann splash on me. It was out of role. So it's just clawing at manically shrimping chunks of toilet paper off just awful. You just look inside the ball afterwards and you're just like what is wrong. Me looks like a mound of dirt like you know. Outside of an ant coal are they like are like outside of a gopher hole? Just mounds of dirt. That's what it looked like. You said you WANNA talk about it. You brought it up you ass. You set me off. You asked a question that was here all right. Let's just forget that ever happened. These food reviews are killing me when you listen to them. Talk About Jake. Paul we were talking about has launched a what appears to be a total scheme. Where's this where's the video of him talking about it What a mess here does enjoy. They say were entitled and Lazy. They tell us to go to college job. Retire at sixty five. How's that working out for us? Are Your parents happy? This is like a dollar store tie Lopez. Yeah Internet marketing totally. I mean look at like the bars and taxed in an an notice all the royalty. Free footage is so bad so poorly edited. Like he'll talk about someone poor and it's just like some royalty free like a baby. It's just so bad I'm not I'M NOT GONNA say anything. Just just enjoy. I'M GONNA START OVER. Take this together then. Talk about it saying we're entitled and Laze they tell us to go to college. Get a job retire sixty five. How's that working out for us? Are Your parents happy? Are they living the life they want it? There's over one trillion dollars in student. Loan debt and people with outdated education. Who can't even get a job for the student loans? They took out that now. Haunt them for like. Maybe we're too young experiences yet. But if you're not then you know exactly what I'm talking about and I've had enough of our generation is better than we deserve better. We're smarter solutions. We need to create a movement for Arjun ranch. One that inspires people to take action to achieve now. The dreams are parents have for us or our society we need the movement that inspires me so knack movement to anyone. Who's greatest enough to follow and I have a much higher chance of coming financially free from the societal cookie cutter nine to five jobs. We were all pulled half of our hands. Are You with me no? It's definitely not it's unbelievable to me. You know So this is a program that costs twenty dollars a month. Now first of all they say broke the fact that he actually thinks he's projecting success and the way he looks is so crazy. He looks like such a Douche. I think he is trying to be appealing as the success. For young guy that you should listen to because he knows what's up looks such a dish and by the way the last the last business. I recall Jake. Paul running was team. Ten which imploded on itself was a total disaster. So what exactly do you know about financial independence and running a business also twenty dollars a month? That's a lot. That's more than Netflix. Yeah Twenty Dollars GonNa Provide for that so for twenty dollars a month. He sold you the lifestyle. He's basically saying what did he say to drop out of school. He said in this interview here because this did right up they says. Where did you say to drop out of school Here the only program which cost twenty dollars a moth will feature curated content from social influencers and business entrepreneurs including Paul himself ostensibly. A how to guide on. How To monetize an all-night presents although Paul told variety it's for anybody who wants insight on how to make money from his her their passion. Subscriptions also include weekly group video calls with Paul experts at guarantees not there the VIP area were Paul of so. Here's a video of him announcing the launch of his of his APP Is just as Classy as you would imagine or not? Even half here you go. This is this is the role model that we all want a mini golf place to. Rossy many people there. The video you showed us barely has any views yet. I think there's A and I think they're just using that as an ad haven't really launched. He's up on a balcony shouting and audibly down at people below him. All of this is something. I'm really passionate about you. Good did you say don't really agree with it has a tweet Our education system is worthless. I'm fed up FIDAI. I want to die. Having made a real difference on the word while he sounds fairly on educates all agree. That SCHOOL DROP-OUT. Yeah went to college about the education system. He sounds like it though. He's he sounds like a buffoon so the education system has failed him. He's right throwing money off the balcony. Here's this is what it means to not that throwing money off balcony hunger games. What kind of. What bills are those coupons for? The are you share. No difference because it doesn't look like real money floating Jape. We can't understand anything arm. So good dawn. I say that weight. You should open that up that before. This event wow you're so allocate. Baffled I think we're missing guy. It's hard to get past the fact that he can barely talk but here about. Here's your leader twenty dollars a month but no way public speaking any tax. That's letting the the government government is campaigning against services. I can't say what he reminds me of right now the The the kid who goes can I you know when you know when you know when Ted. Let's see if that worked in that clip. That used to work but it so old. Now there's this little kid who has like a better because you know when you can't when you win win win. Here's a tweet. In the meantime it's time to like I'm fed up with the government and Shit and School and stuff like that. So this is a movement for like against like school. Twenty dollars government. By the way among he goes. Our education system is worthless by the way no punctuation. He has an apostrophe here but he hasn't punctuated the first part or the I. R. Situation is worthless fed up. If I die I WANNA die. Having made a real difference on the world was that going to do with education row so here he tweeted this. If you're spelled you are is not even a tweet. The image you can use punctuation bro. If you're confused at what the event is tomorrow basically? I'm sick of our education system. How is teaching kids? Zero real life skills for them to secure their own future. I'm creating movement for everyone who wants to take life into their own hands and learn real life skills from actual professionals why our kids sitting in quote film class learning from a teacher who has never even made a film. I don't think anybody's doing that. Neither is Jake Paul. And what are you talking about every sentence daily logs did I? I guarantee you any film class and college is being taught by somebody who makes films I and that's just one example but it's not true. That's just the one example. I made off the top of my ad. Bro. I was the kid in class. Who was the smartest but wouldn't apply myself back. It up album. I was a kid in class. Who was the smartest but wouldn't apply myself because I thought it was so stupid to be sitting there. But it'll but it's all we are taught just sitting there. I'm just not letting it go any more without doing something about it mile. Let me read the comments on top levels. Kids stay in school. Trust me otherwise you'll sound like him. It's almost like worse than tie. Lopez of course. It's at least time. Tyler has has some credential. Tyler is not actually approaching kids. Know it's for anybody but see Jake's whole thing is like yeah he's going to kids and saying fuck school drop out of school and pay me twenty dollars but the dude can't even punctuate a sentence. I mean it's like a run on say it's written like what real world skills to jake. Paul wasn't amusing. Been a finer and his nares sixteen years old. Are you saying that team ten is here? Here's a check-marked Account Replying Whoever Kendra sub Sunderland is a high school taught me about credit job applications basic car maintenance and buying a house instead of the Pythagorean theorem which I never fucking us. Is that what Jake Paul is teaching about credit? Who's never had a job Ethan? Don't that's another Barnum starry. Yeah oh well. That's Oh good. He's got the that's his target market. I wish I wish over to learn to go and porn on like everything else. I learned school. Thank you select. Click like are you sure about this streaming followers? You Is Jake Paul Weston Road. Of course such a Horn Dog Justin seriously. What is Jacob Paul? GonNa Upload. He's GonNa teach you about paying a mortgage is going to upload a log and in on April fifteenth saying. Hey I just filed my taxes like what? What does he know I can? I'm confused about what is he doesn't do anything. Well what happens in the case of someone like Jake Paul is that he has like business partners? Who are just trying to use him. And he thinks it's cool. 'cause you give a fuck us we'll fleeces fans so they are like we have business experts and we're gonNA teach classes of. He's not really involved. He's just selling and his business. Partners are going to do everything but it's still going to suck Jacobs not involved at all. Because obviously he has. No capacity is no capability to actually run and manage business. So He's got his business partner. Who's just trying to fleece his fans as much as Jake. Paul is yeah and They'RE GONNA. They're gonNA try to make something but it's gonna be garbage because nobody there actually cares about it and it's GonNa be impossible to cancel your membership. That's the that's how they all work. I'd be surprised if any if many people enroll in this though because this is awful pitch man. This is not a good fit you know. Gb coming at you he thinks is like Embracing the fact that he's so young and successful with like you know you know. I don't think he thinks about it that much. I feel like he does. I don't know while coming because its intention on like they. I is not capitalized but then do understand if you are actually in business and you send emails like that. People will not take you seriously if you become a serious person series businessman and you're firing off communications like he wrote and that people will not take you seriously like eventually you have to face the real fucking world and you smoking relation. Because you're not just some big like people dude. You are GonNa look like an idiot to everybody. That actually knows how to be professional too. It's it's insane. I don't think he thought that much humiliation buffoon. I think you're giving them way too much. Avery asked if he thinks parents would regard f. f. m.'s sending a dangerous message to younger fans call paused. That's a tough question. He said I would say why. Would you ever stop your kid from learning anything? That is going to make he or she smart. That sounds terrible and it doesn't have to be like I'm taking this course and I'm dropping. You literally told people to drop out of school by the way. This interview was a hack because they just they didn't even push beyond that they do. You think it's dangerous. Thank drop out of school and pay you. That's a tough question I would say. Why would you ever stop your kids from learning anything? An interviewer's like dope make sense. There's another clip of this party. Just money raining down and people. In the Hunger Games situa- grabbing one dollar bills become secure. An independent is to throw money away on dockings quick. Oh what is holding up? These people are obviously paid by. What is the science say? This is such an no no no not no. It's ideas are shit without execution. Sorry Dan tell me exactly. What shows up with this? This this is all. There's not a single person here. Who's a fan ideas are shit without execution? Why would show up with a sign that is that is that maybe Jake Paul Catchphrase I mean. We're not as up to date on the on the wall. He didn't say it. I never heard anyone else. Yeah but I mean what are these older people and then this guy has a sign that says F. FM something low fair enough. Well a tool doozer show without execution comfortable. What is this whole? Yeah what is this situation really? Gp GATE COMING AT? Ya becoming this guy date. Jp's been banished back in high. They're like we don't need kids to see what happens when you actually grow up when turned from us to adult. Everyone's the illegal visit nightmare dumb. So that's what Jake Paul has been up to. I couldn't believe it. I gotTa tell you I I started to feel at some point. The Jake is maybe a little bit of a dumb dumb but is trying to make content and is young. But this is like. You're just trying to scam kids well and to your point after the last scam that I made a video about with the lucrative boxes even then I was like okay fine. Maybe he's actually stupid and didn't think about it enough and just took the sponsor. Well my my point is that after that here and he was like you know what I know. Better now learned my lesson while he went and after that did this. So we really. I think proves that both times. He's just you really just trying to make money at at any cost data and you can i. Can I just make a call? I this is this is unrelated but I wanNA say this as a Jewish Person. We always get a bad rap for being greedy and money grubbing and all this. I only I don't see guys doing shit like this. This is this is a white boy from Ohio. I'm just saying the people I've ever known are not Jewish. Okay thank you said it wrong because goal is not you yeah. I was confused by that. He's yeah he's a guy a white dude from Ohio. I just WanNa say that might trend that I've noticed when I see the grease people like this sold they're sold you would ever takes doesn't care. He's not Jewish if he was Jewish. All accounts feel like. Oh creagh. And I'm just saying that because I get that all the way I see it all the time. There's lots of antisemitic comments. But I just WanNa say I wanNA pointed out thank you. You WanNa find out the those. Stereotypes are not true. I making an anti stereotype. That is a good point to make thank you very much. How many people are Jewish? Are the top ten most wealthy people in the world? I have a feeling. There's a lot of cheers there. Which makes me feel uncomfortable. But damn well. Let's look at the top ten. Wealthiest people We just looked at it last week. Physicist Warren Buffett is Jewish. I have a feeling so. He's not he's no way. Yeah Nebraska. Oh fuck knee so eight. Who's Bernard our new even know? This guy is Bernard may be the only one that's out there you go. You see everybody's trying to give Jews a bad rap. We I mean the Jews I know are very generous. I don't understand I don't I don't get the whole greedy thing if if J. Paul was Jewish. Every comment would be greedy. Jew greeted you agree to Jill but but nobody even really holds it against some. Nobody even calls him. Greedy isn't the live with that label. Right he should live with that label forever. Caridi is Jewish. I don't think sock is Jewish. Luxembourg sounds like a sound jealous. Find Out I don't want him you just you disown him. He is Jewish. Let's see that's no good? We don't like that we don't ask so there's two at a ten. So that's that's well I mean it's a good representation but I mean that's twenty percent of the list. I was expecting worse The question I guess is. How many people really believe that stereotype? I don't know how many people but it's something. I see a lot on the Internet. I don't know if this is something people say but I know that like if I did something like this I would live with the label. Garidi forever but Jake Paul. He's done this multiple times. He doesn't live with that label right. It doesn't stick to like I would stick to me. Because you're the greedy Jew. He's greedy. He should only should get that label the as our. He's great joke. Jake Paul is on everything in his power to exploit his fans sell himself out. Make as much money as possible for any at any cost. That's greedy and he needs to own that label forever. You know I know. Let's call him greedy. Greedy greedy greedy. Jp Greedy Greedy J. P. Greedy Jake you know. Do you think I make a good point? My just being reactionary. I know I mean I. This is obviously coming from a personal place. Because you like you said I mean I've seen it too obviously like can't do anything without being called greedy. I mean there's a lot of any Semites out there and yeah I mean. There's a lot of people that I can't even run ads in my podcasts. To support this like somewhat expensive and complicated operation without being greedy. But well it'd be real. I mean this is. We're talking about a tiny percentage of the people that watch this. I have I do have I mean. Notice it because it obviously. I don't anymore I'm just saying I'm just saying I I it's fine. People can say whatever they want But but you know what I'm saying. Choose that he doesn't have to live with that label and he should big time. Get a pen forever. That says okay so not a not a true flare. People people are calling him worse things though people call me a fool. Would you different? It's the greedy thing that is like that racially motivated like when the greedy. Ju like you have to live with that. Greedy is worse than all those things. 'cause it's like idiot is like oh it's not your fault you're an idiot. You're born that way. Greedy is like it's it's so ugly that it's like Y- greedy is just to me. That's a really bad insult. When used in that way so you feel like it's associated with the negative connotation of being Jewish Yeah most definitely went in the in the sense when they call. I mean in some ways that it's used. Yeah most definitely but but I'm saying like it really does apply more to Jake and this case as we've seen time time again that he he really is that greedy Jew claw you know what I mean. So it's what they say about greedy. Jews that's actually jake so he's agreed to do yes. Okay but greedy. Jews are actually green juice jake. Paul Surreal Greedy jail. He's a greedy GOI. He's A. He's the greediest Jewish boy. Okay you know what I mean. We talk about real things here. So that's Jake Paul the greedy. Juke greedy Jake. Paul Youtube a love that Jake. Paul D you. G J J J. J. J. J. P. G. J. G. J. J. P. Greedy Jew Jake Paul. Catchy they also WanNa add GOI because you could agree J. J. P. Ingredient. Judy Jake Paul now. You're working. Keep spinning that. Gd Jj actually. Interestingly Jake Paul got in trouble unrelated. He was getting slammed on twitter yesterday. Oh I can't oh. Did he erase it? Okay good you gotTA ALBUM OF A. He was actually trending. Because for this tweet he said Remember anxiety is created by. You GotTa let life play out. Remind yourself to be happy and the answer will come chillier. Mind OUT GO FOR A Walk. Talk to a friend. I guess people got hung up on the line. Remember exile is created by you This one of the lessons that you can expect to get for your twenty dollars a month. That's a Freebie. Yes a taste of of the wisdom to calm again. I think this just. I don't think it's as big of a deal as everyone's making to be. I think it just shows how on empathetic and unexperienced. He is in life because he doesn't really have anxiety problems. When you consider suffer member executives created by you just go for a walk through a friend. Yeah I mean like he just. He doesn't have the empathy to imagine. The other people's writing might be worse than that or he's never experienced anything that's worse than that so what he's talking about his daily stress right because he's he's just so He's just really not a wise experienced person. He's in he's never looked outside himself so to me is just. It's just another tweet by a very young Overly Air I mean Air Ghent Person Right. Did you greedy Jewish Jake? Paul thank you By the way. Larry Ellison who is the seventh richest person in the world and Larry Page? Who's the tenth richest person in the world? Both also Jewish so that's four out of ten. That's enough Jewish last name. I I don't know I don't think pages a Jewish last name but I just looked it up his His Mother's Jew so he's jewelry four out of ten. That is pretty wild. Well let's talk about. What what do you make of that? They're probably all based out of California New York. And so these are the places where it's hard to explain. I don't know why I don't know why it is but greedy. Mock duck is a piece of shit. That's for sure. That's a greedy. Do Michael Bloomberg is a very greedy person. Yes what do we do? Because he's Jewish. I'm just saying his greedy. Because he has sixty billion dollars. You think you need to be greeted worth sixty bill. Believe everyone on that list. Graham I think you have to to an extent greedy to have a a billion much of less. I mean everybody on this list has fifty billion dollars or more Yeah I think do not like to be on that list and no yes you would know. I would not what you get a taste. It's like you can't stop playing that sound bite here. Go Danda anti-semites anti-semites Dono theirself. Aiding Jews Dan. You're hating on those dollars. I'm just kidding anyway. Just remember anxieties created by you and then when people started trashing him and he was twitter he clarifies he says what I meant is that you're excited can build up if you let it. It doesn't just go away. My never does. But there's days when it's like really bad and then there's days when it's not as bad so things start to build up. There are ways to help it. Chill out again. You're just talking about everyday stress. I mean he's he doesn't he continues. He can tell us talk to a friend. Hilo not have friends exactly. Then you're really fucked. What if I don't have legs jank would have a fridge or legs? How rude you bro. And then he continues to use actually. I'm surprised that people took this so Imraan with it because he was like trending because somehow the like scam wasn't trending. Yeah but this one dumb comment. He was trying to be like inspirational and helpful. But it just shows what a dump them but anyway continues. If y'all don't like my tweet then y'all don't gotta listen to it but it could help some people and it helps me with my anxiety. What exactly how. What is it that you said that helps go for a walk over? One was filling like Shit today and Hella Anxiety Inc Hella anxiety and wanted to put a reminder out there to anyone else who might be having anxiety today all love he keeps getting clown. He said everyone climbing tweet. But it's now spreading more awareness about anxiety which I didn't even know was thing those eighteen but had it my whole life and never knew how to deal with it if you think you have it or want to deal with it. Try Reading this health. Line DOT COM had a cope with anxiety. Eleven simple ways and went to see a doctor. Oh Cool helpline DOT COM. Thank you check for the medical advice right. Then say that video if you want when the kit our we'll get back to that and then actually during this whole tweets storm. I realized that he had blocked me. I mean actually what I did to deserve that he did a show. He's a friend of the show and it feels bad and you said that in our chat last night and you're blocked iconic you do. I haven't talked and I haven't tweeted at him like I don't ever tweet at him. Do I on twitter. Wasn't there that he made some stupid way. It could've could've been. Logan hasn't blocked me. I've certainly think the Logan's actually go on was the one that wanted to punch you in the face when he met you right. Yes but he hasn't blocked there and he told you that straight up right wasn't he? Well Dan well tell you what happened. I was there. He looked at me. I he was what everyone makes fun of me because I apparently tell the story all the time. I haven't talked about this in a long time so I don't remember the story. I saw Logan right after me and items made are colorblind video. I was at a party at Notches House and Logan. Paul Notch has on display like a super bright red sports car. Kind of collectible antique car. And who do I see their Logan Paul next to this bright red car so say you know what instead of this being awkward and pretending like I don't see him pretending like we don't see each other I'm just GonNa go say hi so probably had a drink or two in me. I was like you know what let's just go say hi to Logan and and hopefully bury the hatchet and I walk over to him and I'm just. I'm just trying to be friendly. I thought he would get a kick out of it but I said Hey. Logan what colors that car and I I genuinely. I didn't think that I was going to be insulting. I just thought I was. I thought he thought it was cheeky. And Laugh and he turned to me and he goes like this. He looks at me and he's like like that and maybe he was just like ooh. I can't believe it's you. I wasn't really scared. He was gonNA punishment but he was like man. I've I've I've daydream to what I would say to you. If I ever saw you person and I said well here I am. What do you WanNa say to me? And he said I thought about saying something like Your face looks like you have pukes on or something like that. But you're he goes and he. He was humble. He said. But you're too funny and quick and you probably say something back so he was. He was He did say that. So I said you know It's all good dude You know I just WanNa say hi. Oh he wouldn't shake. My hand goes weird. I remember because we've never like whenever we would meet anyone in person it's usually just like everyone is able to laugh it off and then you kinda like cool way to charter. But he it was the first And probably the only one that was you could tell his pissed and it was not down. Yeah surprise but I mean it's first semester happened to me. I put my hand and he would. He refuse to shake. That's what happened. I put out my hand that Logan will carling turn around and put out my hand and he was like like no shake your hand with a fist saw. I did find your tweet that I think may have caused the block really It was after the Jake Ball against bowling would quoted a while. This is all like some popular on. Shouldn't seventy five thousand. I said Jake Paul. We need to discuss cyber-bulling also Jake Paul. Dachshund POSTPONE HOUSES LATER. Stuck UP AT GUNPOINT. Also Jake Paul Host Party were gross are drugged also Jake.

I'm not defending him. Any means but I I understand why you you think he's just shutting out the haters grabbing ears. Okay well he blocked anyway. I think it's worthy of of finding that out. Though because we have put some links to his tweets in our show. Prep guys. You deleted the tweet. What the Hell is he? Are you talking about it soon? As I said that was like he blocked. Because when you click it on your phone it just says this tweets not available right exactly and then. I went on my computer and sure enough. You're block so they had. I love how twitter knock some people. Just says you're blocked. It's awesome so jake has blocked me since two Jake I've got this whole like a statement on the matter. He says at a rally on Saturday.

The suicide hotline numbers on his twitter. Right now load. I can't loaded landing way I'll continue. He added that the program does not have a set curriculum. The word itself evokes a sense of rigidness people who sign up we'll learn how to market themselves the strategies behind going viral and practical tips on how to handle business meetings and even roommates. Wow Dude wow which might not which which might not be a set of curriculum but sounds very much at least like a informal syllabus. Shut the fuck up. These people variety wrote this article should just die in a fire on his less. It says you can expect live weekly video. Coaching calls with Jake. Paul Yeah right no can someone like I do. I would love to get my hands on one of those. So that's what j Paul's up to. That's a race to the bottom is still not fully loaded and the website. Is You want me to pay twenty dollars a month. And you don't even have a website. That's functioning. I was never even able to get it. Open on the screen shot that shared. I can't even load a came and get anything you say that. Yeah okay well. Here's the same thing it's white text on a white background ono. Thanks this has anyone looked at this. I don't want I don't how do I do this with us? Showing discord. Oh if you click on the image says opened original. Here's the website I can't really. There's just way and then and then if you highlight you'll see that they have texted. Oh my God I know that. Like that's a block cat. Seo method to like plug keywords in. You don't see it but I don't think that's what they're going for doesn't look like this. Looks like it's actually the info trying to share. Did what is going on with your site. Dude I can't even get on there also. Apparently the twenty dollars a month. That's disc that's fifty percent off. Its Oh my God before you notice. Forty dollars man. After the first month when you can't contact support to cancel their good luck reaching support. The website doesn't even work exactly. Well this is like Oh. This is a not a good scan. The ABRO talked to get a fucking hosting networks twenty dollars a month down at the bottom of the website. There is a letter to the parents. I guess to reassure them that. Look at this three pair and it's only going to get worse. Once robotics artificial intelligence and other technology advancements disrupt the work. I do Jake Paul Zangari looking. Yeah Anyway your. This is a total disaster. I came a little website. I'm out and then. Meanwhile speaking of the Paul Brothers race to the bottom Logan Paul is actually been doing really well on Youtube and out of curiosity. I went over to his website to his channel to see what he's been up to. And you know. Look I don't have a problem with him doing whatever he wants. His views have been way up. He started ripping unretire. I don't know when I say rip off. I don't know but he's doing like David. Dobric style logs like really sure Tons of jump cuts high intensity and look at this thumbnail at as four point five million views. I mean I can't do shit so I just clicked this one because I know Lana roads like a a really famous porn star. That Lana rose so so again. You all know what his target demographic is. I mean these are eight to I would say eight to at most fifteen probably more like twelve and thirteen olds are watching him and this video this five minute video. You have drinking alcohol. Smoking weed almost naked porn stars. And it's not age restricted yet. Every time I make no. It's not yet every time I make a podcast here just sitting here for two hours talking. I always dealing with democratization Immature RATINGS DEMAND. age restrictions. It's like what about what I'm doing for church. My audience is like college mature people. I'm sitting here having a conversation in earnest so I just I again. I don't get it. I don't get why I I'm afraid to even show you guys in here because Because I think that we'll get our whole to our podcast de monetize for even showing this shit but you'll have to take my word for it. I've been I've been watching some of this stuff. He has like copyrighted songs and they're like Rolling Stone Song in there. Yeah I think we noticed that to David. Does the same thing. They have some kind of licensing agreement with whoever the publishing which is which is really cool. I'm jealous I want that. I really want that. I mean it's just a matter. Well I think it has to do with if I had the guests there agency or their manager. Whoever has some kind of arrangement with whatever label owns all those tracks and they like give their channel some kind of green light so they don't claim their content which is awesome. I wish I could get that because seriously menu. Probably but I don I don't know what that entails. I don't know if they pay them. My my hunch is that they don't even pay for it. I think that these think they probably just realized that It's good for everybody to play the song because these kids probably don't know rolling stone and hear that song and all of a sudden they can't watch. Yeah Oh you mutated that was so slick. They're playing rolling stones here and Didn't list the song. So let's just get past this so this whole video is just him sitting in a car with Lonrho's who's apparently dating his friend for his birthday He's like this guy has everything. So I'm going to get his favorite porn star another apparently dating and fucking and Let's watch this conversation me is that I can't with my friend's girlfriend anymore. I just can't fan. She said why is that? I can't jerk off to my friend's girlfriend. And Mike's porn is that happening. We have sex ten now. One of the worst part about all this vying. I'd do last night Josie about it. He asked me if I watch you. And like Josie Josie roads this conversation. This is aim compared to what I saw. Yeah understand how this is interesting but like how am I Howard? They clamping down on me. It's like over the course of two hours. Of course I'm going to say Shit then like you have to use your fucking brain you to. I'm trying to change business here in. Earnest user fucking pray and. They're serving this kid this shit. The kids getting tons of us. I'm sure it's being recommended. Fuck you. I'm so angry about like well. He blipped up the blitz. The F word it off. He believed girls wearing thongs in the thumb porn stars and the thumbnail and the videos wearing lingerie. She's in bed. She wears that kids learn. Does it look deviated Septum by the way got so cringe? Actually just shut it off. Watch this to me. Now what do you think of me personally? Like aesthetically a handsome. Thanks anyways. What are you doing there? I'M GONNA go. That's not going to turn this off. It's a race to the bottom. You know it's like it's yeah. Of course you can get views from kids when you have porn stars and lingerie and all you're talking about ninety sex stuff and smacking weeden drinking. I jerked off to your girlfriend. Braille dragged off to yours Wa that turns me on. Yeah you gotTA give it to them. Getting served ads and stuff. I mean you gotta give it to them. It's genius. They thought about this. So like you know how we're GonNa get views like thus get people bring and Alana roads the most famous porn star in the world. Get her in here and get her and lingerie pretend that she's fucking my friend. I mean regular smoking I asked booking joints in this exactly. It's like a huge. Like twenty gram joint looks legit. I mean the dude getting older I can understand if he doesn't WanNa make kids content anymore. I mean I you know cringing bad but I can understand getting older one a year. Well I mean how old is he? Twenty yeah I mean. He just doesn't want to make content for twelve year olds anymore. I guess I wouldn't want to. Let's see he's twenty four but But I think you're right about the fact that I'm sure his audience still like audience. Didn't suddenly shift to you. Know being much more mature than there was if there was a college as person actually watching Logan Paul. It's so cringe picture new even imagine putting that on in college like how embarrassing. I guess maybe some of these kids grew up with him and now this year it's been one year. Who's grown up? Nobody's grown up. It's been one year since the suicide forest or maybe two and the letter to parents on Jake balls. Whoa side yeah. They're just like we know that you want the best for your kid and you have all this money. Saved up for college. May trying to get the Pan to pay for this and it's so shamelessly so the kids have a pitch to the parents and now they're addressing the parent here because the kid has asked for another parent is reading this. It's like kids. Show this to your parents. Yeah Smart. He's thought of it all except how to host. It is even saying you probably already have Netflix or Hulu or Amazon. Prime too much though. I'm a date. I'm in the week. I spent on Netflix Bro. And a less. He's saying this is better because those don't help future did if you only taxes just google it. There's tons of free resources. You what I mean like the. Here's here's my. You Want. Eason's business in Schools Success Advice. You cannot teach anybody anything if they have the actual will and desire to learn and chief something they will figure it out and learn it despite whatever it is they're up against you just google it and you can fuck you on. You'll need to pay anybody anything. There's so many great free resource you learn how to pay taxes you WANNA learn. What was the other Shitty said taxes so fucking easy do a once or just? I don't know I mean none but the message is fine. I agree that there's a lot of stuff that the school could teach us. But Jake Ball's GONNA ditch me. Anything will topic into that Jen Role Consent. That will have. It's like I think really. Just the moral is that you know. High School should have like a civics class where they teach you how to pay bills and taxes and get insurance the shit he said but that it's really not that complicated. Take it from me as an adult. You do it once you figure it out. It's a pain the acids chore. But it's not that big of a deal Something you don't need to pay anyone to learn about it but that's true of all the business. Should've tyler peasant all these gurus. Yeah they prey on people who like when you get really desperate inside you you you'll claw onto anything and you'll you'll look for answers wherever you see him and your desperation vigil you. What you're looking for is something that will momentarily satisfy you. These things will take your money. It will make you feel like you've done action so you'll feel satisfied but it will contribute nothing to your long term success at all people. You're worse now because you have this money must time. I mean if people who really are are destined to succeed are people who look beyond. Don't even see any of that. Shit what they see as their goal they're motivated and they're gonNA figure out on their own how to achieve it within them and nobody else. Is that raw determination and dedication. There's nobody that will teach you anything along the way the only knowledge that matters stuff you learn on your own through the act of doing things that's only knowledge that matters and has value. You can get advice from people and along the way once. It's valid validated through life. Experience maybe brings on new meaning of new weight. But if you haven't done anything whatever anybody's telling you is worthless the only knowledge and experience it's viable is things that you go out and do yourself. Nobody can pay that nobody can. You can't pay anybody. Nobody can help you do that you. They're going to do it or you're not GonNa do it and nothing anybody says they're gonNA motivate you is going to Energize you either just are GonNa do it or you're not this it. That's how I feel. You're just you're GONNA do it or you're not going to do it and everybody else. Who's just trying to tell you what to do scam you. Yeah they're stealing your what is it pretty much. I agree. Thank you knowledge. And that implies every one of these. I've talking Tim Robbins Tyler. -Pez Jake Paul fucking Oprah. I don't care who it is. Nobody anything anybody tells. You is worthless compared to your own experience of just trying to do something anything that's it that's my throwing our boy. Tim Robbins under the bus. Like fucking Weirdo. I think he's a weird. I arrived Tim. Robbins is and I liked the shushing. Tony Robbins assist Weirdo So that's Ethan's Business School of business and you don't have to pay me anything for fourteen raucous. Yeah Poor Tim. Robbins man didn't dirty get Tim. Robbins is a good guy. Meant Tony Robbins. I don't know if Tim Robbins might be a piece of shit too. Good actor good actor. I'll give them that for sure. He's ever been in the pizza. Category hopping as far as we know. So that's it that's all I've got that's it that's the whole Shebang we've been going Two hours roughly. Since we're GONNA have like ten edits. Well thank you guys so much. Today's Tuesday will be joined on Friday by Pudi Pie afford to that. That's GONNA be awesome looking forward to that and So hopefully you'll join us on Friday and until then we have a fantastic week. I'll be have a great week. You're watching the debates on Wednesday your boy Bloomberg Bloomberg Man. I'm excited it's going to be make you break. He's GonNa suck or he's GonNa even if he's okay after like that's enough.

Gabor's have very excited pleased with him so my brother accidentally ordered Girls Gone. Well not accidentally he ordered. I purposely ordered girls gone wild. Dvd's but accidentally misunderstood like that. You have to cancel or whatever you know he got hit with like the Columbia Pricewaterhouse. I love the subscription. Dvd's Yeah Yeah Jailani. He's gotta be girls. Gone Wild Guy. I wish something Francis Cheaters Guy. No I really got stabbed. Wanted to keep shooting. That was the only thing that I remember from that. Keep Rolling that show is the real Daniel Day. Do US painful. I did those Columbia CD things I feel like. That was one of the parents like months later we get keen to. You're getting these CDs. Where are you getting these coming from? How many kids would you think told their parents like it? Only costs a penny. Your parents like did a modem research any research at all. We're learning anything else away from knowing everything there's a fun weird like this should be a Malcolm Gladwin article. It's not yet but there's a fun weird thing if you look at the like best selling albums of all time like top fifty like thirty of them are from the era of those Columbia housing's it was such a limited selection. Everybody signed up for those like everyone grabs everything. There was a there was a trick to that. Yeah it was. I think billboards still does. That's like pinball charts and they started doing weird ways of tallying the way that stuff is measured him. You know. It's also none of that. Well none of like. I'm sure Justin Bieber is his song hitting number one away from money. It doesn't I think he's on some sort of bringer. He's doing door deals at various college places. Like all right. If you don't see in the bucket okay podcast. So they'll do the script here at the beginning. We're GONNA play a game involving my dad the beginning And then we'll do the script and play some games kind of just talk about whatever we want and then we're done with podcast. Oh excellent. I'm glad we got this scheduled. It's only eighteen years. Who was set up to be the fourth guests on year. Four seventeen year anniversary. I'm very I'm I'm a responsible. Flake always with enough for with enough notice. Saying you know what it turns out. I'm not going to cancel far enough in advance before other people were booked for sooner dates. I can November in April. You'd be November is good for me and then in mid may like that one day in. November. It's not good for what is it. What is this? That's like the king. That's my entire life is making stuffing schedule and be like. Oh I got this big opportunity finally coming in and then looking at my schedule and being like in those two Fridays. I told so. And so I'd go out to highland park and argue on behalf of Matsu balls and I guess this weird guilt where I'm like. I guess I should tell this person I can't do there and then I'm like wait a minute. You're doing them a favor. You're not leaving them and alerts with advanced and started to finally feel good now. I'm like sorry Kyle. I actually am traveling that day. Victory scheduled rescheduled two days later. Hey just got another thing which is more than fine. Yeah you can't I can't hold it against any one. For cancelling doing me a favor for free but it is easy to let it stress. You out because I'm the same way like like fuck. Well I've been blocking out that Thursday afternoon you asshole and I'm like oh I'm a lower priority than being. Everyone loves most. Is someone else canceling their plans. For some reason we feel stressed out about it all the time. It's really funny like how much we talk like. Dude I love just doing nothing and then when you're cancels on like the guilt of having to cancel is like insane for four or five days you lose four or five days of your life worrying about I remember Ted Alexandro A COMEDIAN NEW YORK. Had this bit one time that. I thought was so funny where he just goes psychotic. He's like what did I do today. I just did that thing I had to do. I just sent the email. And he's like that was it. He's like he's like you know what when you wake up tomorrow. Just send it. He's got the email you got the personal. Get it and that'll be it. Gosh that guys right. Yeah there's so much in my life where I'm like. Oh just do all right cool I want to do. More live shows cool. I got hooked on a live show. It's Thursday now it's Wednesday and I'm like I don't WanNa do this Thursday. I'm like the last thing I want to do is fucking go tonight. I can't flake now though. I should've flaked early. And then you get in your car and you're driving there. I can't believe Dr Forty minutes to Fuck Atwater Glendale to do the show. And then you do the show. And you're and I fucking love doing. This is why it run into. That was driving home. I gotta get booked Last year I know Aligarh I wish someone could just message me and be like do you want to have done this show three weeks from now and you like. I do WanNa have had matt and they're like you did it. We did it. Tim Ferriss as a great Advice FOR PEOPLE. Who have these situations like? If someone asks you to do something give it. Hit it with the next Tuesday rule. If if the invite was you know? Oh Hey and in Late February doing this show for charity. You WanNa do it. You'd be like yes sure but if you imagine your head it's next Tuesday and then you're like I don't know if I want to do it in five weeks it'll be next Tuesday there eventually. That will be next Tuesday from now. There is something about putting it where you're like. Oh so good. I don't have shit to do. And then when you get to it you're like. Oh Fuck. I should've never agreed to this. It's so crazy I I am going on tour for three and a half weeks and then I next week. I'm leaving next week when this comes out. We'll have probably happened and be over whatever so I can say this L. Good sitting out there for Armand down and I was buying my flight yesterday. I I bought it for the wrong month. I bought the flight for February cheap. I can't believe it's it's eight days in advance and it was so cheap for the flight. Ninety eight dollars to fly because I find to Atlanta the first show is in Athens but the Atlanta airport is the cheapest one to fly to every flight goes there and so. I'm like ninety bucks eight days in advance. That's great. Why isn't the show up in my calendar? Let Me Fuck Ron Month wrong month and then I was like okay. I have a day to cancel. 'cause you're allowed to cancel within twenty four hours for flights far enough advanced and I was like I'll just cancel it and she and I should cancel this whole tour. Surprises can never by the right in my head. Like what if I never by the right flight for the like? What if I can't figure out how to get there? I should probably stay home. That's a that's amazing that's like saying like what if I bomb? Well what have I? I'll just stay home. I am going to go bomb. I'm opening for musicians thousand to two thousand person room unless you're hearing this and you saw me on the tour. I crushed every show except the one year at. But is there a bigger nightmare? Situat- like it is the hardest thing you can do is so hard when the people are there to see comedy a whole people come specifically to see me do the thing they already know. And then They're still like oh. It's still not that fulfilling doing it before musicians. It people like to go see music because they can passively experience at no one's ever like I really WanNa go to this concert. 'cause I really WANNA listen to nuance rationally. These are like jam. Bands people you on drugs and stuff l. Yeah they're already jam bands. It's a great audience. They're going to be like someone who's never done line. Must audience things that come out a year later? I will say this I remember one time. On one of those tours. We had red bull's sponsor and they gave us a bunch of free red bull to give out and I imagine opening for abandons a lot like doing Acuna for an audience that just drank three red bull's watching want to ask questions like that. I mean Gabrielson I do. I will record an intro to the podcast separately. Do you want to just do it now? No we'll do it separately. I I do it for every episode separately. So it's not going to be anything I met at Bonnaroo and pre agreed to do my show over images the show Power hour also before we'd ever met. I'd agreed to drink and this is okay. This is the perfect example of just e mail. The person the thing you need to email them because then it'll get off your chest and get solved. I agreed to do the drink for an hour show and I'm allergic to beer. I gotTa tell them this. I think it's like four or five days. I wonder if they might not even still be as email off so I drink And and then I went with Mike. Mike's hard lemonade which is like double the AB. I've done on Mike's hard enough ice power hour. It is a little bit more. Toss than the other guys Participate this is also at Bonnaroo in. It's opening night of the festival so everyone they're super fucking amped. This was the first show like there's a kind of going on right but in any headliner right and so everyone was showed up. Which was which was for comedy. Bonnaroo is insane. We were the last year that they did comedy. Let's just do music from now. What's great I? We were the last year they do but this I I'm so crazy I was like. Maybe they just blocked me from seeing the other comedy lineups. I did for sure it was my fault that I didn't get back and then when I found out. No there's no more comedy at all. I also thought that I was like. Oh It's more my fault than I thought it was. It was my thirtieth birthday power hour and even then you're doing it for trapped audience. Who really some of the comedy audiences at Bonnaroo? Are there for the air conditioning. I mean the biggest draws that and it's not really air conditioned Walker lion coming from the I gotta go in. We're in a weird dark barn or DJ's it's basically the drug barn at dusk but during the day they're like what if it was so wild. These are music audiences who are someone in the middle of a different show. I heard say out loud. Oh I forgot. There's t pain and left the show. Which is a completely reasonable reaction watching like a weird fucking you know. Alternative live podcast. Oh wait a minute. Mega popstar hundred yards away being funnier than us. Yeah yeah funny. People were walking by and go oh poppins he was having this tent to find me. Kyle and chain to our as shirtless onstage. Drinking shot every minute with a sign language interpreter interpreter and we were losing our minds not speaking English tot garbage and I imagine walking into that. You're like Jack Twenty year old in your fucking backpack in short story. Camelback through six pack type of thing. I someone tag someone posts a picture away after. And they're like I got a picture of this funny comedian Bonnaroo. Does anyone knew who it was. And it was me shirtless during your show like I got. It was like a professional photographer trying to organize. This is probably last January. Eight month on right and he's going through pictures picture. It's funny comedian at bonds. Who doesn't someone kyle and he replied. No it isn't and I was like no that's me and he goes are you sure and I'm like am I sure that was me. Yes Yeah we we had a great couple of nights of hanging out. That was the first time we met the second time we hung out was lying on the grass on mushrooms. Around with perfect. Perfect Thursday night was so threw up after power hour. I throw because we're a golf cart ride with two COEN brothers characters. Who are the talent wrangler for comedy? They're the coolest guys of all time. They're two brothers who look like different formations of the same person you know they they are Fargo Characters Fargo type of dudes who carry knives like on. Ironically you're like oh they're like oh I have a knife. They're also like super liberal dude asks who's just like them where they're from but then they're super good at driving golf carts and chance the rapper. These guys rule like the talent drivers at Bonnaroo had. They got assigned to comedy which is still somehow under the umbrella of talent. Yeah they're like hold on. We got to get Simpson and John. Gabriel additives well. We can't get Gabrielson Kyle because they refused to leave the daytime. Sheryl Crowe show type to miss something for she'll throw you house that I have for whatever reason. I have been late to to weddings more than one wedding because I was watching. The end of roadhouse which I've seen one hundred times. Yeah but it's on it. I don't want to miss the rest of it like I'm GonNa be late to this. How crazy would it be if you just bought it and had it on your phone and watch the end that one I would? I wouldn't be here right now. Then I would ruin a wedding by rather than being late for it by sitting in the audience watching throat ribs. Pain don't hurt talking to someone about when we're talking about the best movies to take place in the state you are from. And I said Roadhouse is maybe taking place in Missouri and they went no. It can't be like it is and then a rack their brain for so and they're like what about goes like you hear them about to say the three other things you could wizard of Kansas. And it's like here it's like you. Roadhouse is a fucking great great perfect. Well what are the best movies? Take Place in the states. You guys are from New York called New York movie after hours. United Ninety three point three technically takes place space in America Airspace what's the Best Minnesota Fargo for? Oh yeah that makes sense. Big is up there. I'm excited for Fargo. To now become the best thing that takes place in the state. I'm from well the next season. The Fargo is about the Kansas City mob and Chris Rock is a city Mafia school also behind no Fargo and I love the show. It's so good and then you watch a trail and you're like fuck. Is this even better? Like how is it better than it had all the things I love and then I watch it and I'm like houses better than all the things. It's a better than that. I watched season one and I absolutely fucking love season. Two is the best television. I've ever Jesse one. Yeah yeah that was that season two. Yes yeah I watched like the first few episodes that fucking rule and then season? Three's like somehow. Was Charlie more of a gray tone. It's almost like to me season. Two felt like you seen all this Rebecca Fargo to me season three felt like the British version of Fargo taking place in America David Dulas. I mean he's so so but it also everything was a little more distant and dry even for about. Yeah probably I definitely don't like it as much as season to the best end. I just switched my wallpaper from picture of the kitchen. Brothers from season to Fargo because people who these men to Calvin ops. Who are this? Who's this man and tiger? It's my it's it's crazy that anything could even be better than season one. Which still has that Billy Bob Thornton Elevator scene? It's like crazy. Is that the one where he goes in the building and they just follow him from inside the building. That was like the fucking cool. That's that's movie making. I think so I think that the movie Fargo is the Third Best Fargo perfect movie too but it is. I go to one movie. Three don't know every time you watch that movie. It gets funnier about the show is. There's so much more favorite. I like Goodfellas with TV. Show because it's forty and whatever it sure do I think let's say whatever. Have eight million peanuts or one. Nice Creme Brulee EMINEM's are GonNa last me. Seven weeks with an fx logging. Surprised that there has not been criminally flavored et. At this point off. A million dollars just started mark that I had my first Pretzel. Eminem shaken big Fan Fan. I think peanut butter EMINEM is the final form of EMINEM. I think that's the best one. It is pretty sometimes. You get a really oldest one mostly happened at Bodega New York. You get a really old bag of peanut butter rhames and the peanut butter has like dissolves. And you're like crispy yes and I are the only eminem's at don't benefit from the freezer when you pull the freezer website ruin the integrity of the peanut butter. What pieces are supposed to be? Yes exactly exactly the peanut butter ratio. I Love Reporter. Cops say the best. I think there's a decent distance. I think cats are up there for me as well. There really are a flawless peanut butter cups. I think are so frigging. Good that even like the facilities of the trader Joe's credible so good. You can just get good peanut butter cups because it's just a disaster. It's a perfect design and then even reese's like weird like all versions like the flexes that they do. Are there just like what's tight. Trading the amount of peanut butter and chocolate tweaking. It so like the egg is Awesome Vegas. So take the sticks. Christmas trees are great. I hate have you seen because they have the peanut butter lovers one? That's more peanut butter unless they have and that was the chocolate lovers one. That's like sociopaths stuff too. I want the peanut Butter Cup but one thin wave of peanut butter to fuck you. Don't even go to seven twelve right. Next door. To think there was there is one Williamsburg called the eleven seven remember time on the cell started Williamsburg And it has seven elevens font and it's called the eleven to seven and it's just like I mean this is insane. Yeah and it's so funny. It's like the asylum productions like they make the Trans Mount Trashmore I. It's like they've movies big. That's coming out. They have like Shit version of helping MOMS accidentally all the transformers or round more percents the funniest round shoulders around elbows. It's really re. They look like soccer. Boppers like Well so far. This has been a combination of all the PODCASTS. Let's breakdown some fast food that we like. We've been delving into all the PODCASTS listenership numbers I wish I had. How did this get made? I wish let's let's talk about so so the script here. Oh boy yeah. I forgot that we were going to actually have to read this and record it. It's upsetting so you've never seen doctor who I've never seen a minute of the I mean I I must have seen like thirty seconds of it as a child clicking through because I was allergic to how yellow and poor of quality it looked like okay. I like this show was on when we were kids. Like on BBC parents were yes. Went on for like fifty years a new thing. And everyone's GonNa crazy about like fandom is kicked off even more recently because BBC is playing it more. But I remember seeing it and it looking like this in the ninety S. When I was a kid it looked because it looked like a movie. It looked like we always used to joke that stuff that was British looked bad because they just weren't the same quality of cameras or over lighting or whatever American. Tv was doing so. I would see clips of it and be like. I hear that this is sci-fi and I'm a little star wars boy so this would be great and then I watch a split second my fuck this boring as shit. It's a sixty year old man in a trenchcoat. Like sort of hobbling down a hill. Why no I watch? I know nothing. I'm realizing now reading a single rebecca. Do you watch this show. I've watched many seasons of like the modern day ones but I stopped years ago. I liked it but I got I got sick of every sherlock. I love did at the time when it was on. Yeah yeah no I watched the shit sure what it was. Incredible I was. It was hard for me to get into that weird Time jumped backwards to normal Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock don't do you already changed. You know what I mean. There was a little bit of I. I don't I don't think I ever even finish that one but I loved the rest of it. Even though it was I've never seen something so formulaic yet. An hour and twenty minutes long. It was so formula movie every time the Problem Sherlock is that it just ended up the ARC ended up being the same every time and that was the problem but like it was also compelling and look so him and Martin Freeman their buddy. Yeah kind of comedy but fun. They're great to like make John Watson sort of like a military doctors such a fun. Yeah Yeah it's like a weight at served in Afghanistan it's like Oh like that layer of just like that makes him such a better person on paper then sherlock and like better cumberbatch play sherlock like prick so it's very dynamic. It was really nice to have Watson be the only one of the two with any real human experience. Some level of talking to people on the level of literally serving in the military in a war is country. Didn't even start that he got dragged down to us so kyle. You've never seen doctor. I think as you referenced. You mentioned talk about hardest second choice. Dr Who say Tartus and daily? I say because I got in a fight with some guy on twitter. 'cause I told him that Lib tarred with short for libraries Tartus short for. It's a small library in the UK. And that's why they call it Lib tarts because we love books and he didn't believe me and then he looked it up in Cyprus. I know about the tortoise because there is a Google maps Easter Egg. Where if you found the Tartus in the UK like. I don't know if you go if you go to Google maps to someplace you can dive actually into one and they rendered a cool Tartus. That's the blue phone Blue Phone booth. And what think they bill and Ted through that a bigger on the inside thing? It's hot tub tarnish. I can't say that. Sounds like a tortoise machine. Can't shorten the time thank you. Dr. We had a doctor. You should know guitarist more than once we have to. We have to more than one tartus again. Is there a way to say that fucked up to tarnish? We have to wait again. Is aware you to say this. This is a time travel. Show time space space very much space. So quantum leap star trek kind of no. I'm not the right person to ask. Dr Who was? Probably the example people would use the description of other things. Because I think it's here from nineteen sixty three. I said it's been around since your parents. Six seasons nine hundred episodes there are ninety seven missing episode. There's more missing episodes of this than there are episodes of any show. I've ever seen all the way through because they were like shown on like analog recorded and shown on television and they were never like archived asks. Yeah they're just like they were just like lost. You hear about how. There's just all monty python stuff that puts people saw once and so you hear people call my favorite sketch with so and so and it was just on. Tv wants now. I love it. I wish I could see it but I love the idea that there's like sketch comedy. Just a law. That thirty British people remember. That's how I feel having like come up in the early two thousands ought to. I saw bread. Gilman do and then I'm like there's no recording of a weird thing to say about a guy who's now on stranger thing I saw him do. It is the funniest like the funniest thing. Maybe the hardest. I've ever laughed at anything. Live was Ucb's show mortis the one where one person knows half of it is scripted atwater gravity water and Scott adds it was doing a scene with the justice is not going to hold up. But he's doing a scene from a Tennessee Williams. Play the most dramatic thing you can do. He doesn't know it's that the woman who's in the scene with them. They introduced her. She's won eleven. Tony and that's maybe the best actor in the world. You know what I mean. This is who has this but this person and then. She's memorized at Tennessee. Williams play like this shit's GonNa be heavy and then she's acting some scene where she gets abused and adds. It doesn't know his half. He's just improvising basically scripted lines and at one point he slapped her or something like and like hit her and then her next line was if you lay your hand on me one more time. I'm out but when he hit her. You saw her. Do the math of how perfect the next line was about to be and she's like Z. Layer and then adds it just walked off stage. Laughing backstage at the crowd is like this is the most perfect because this is so. What does he watch on his right? I mean there's people be that fit. Do you know what I mean. Seen because magic just happened Improv. And and stuff like that is either the best thing in the funniest thing of all time or sort of work to consume. Yeah I always look. I would say about watching Improv. It's like the closer you are the better because then you can get caught up in it. Every step you take away loses like five percent of his interest and shooting it on TV on a camera eliminates because the further you are away. It's just like Oh that's too weird white guys but it sort of just moving awkwardly but if you are close enough and even close enough in like a metaphorical like you understand Improv. I like this person that's performing. There's a reason like Tj Dave is just the funniest thing ever for thirty years. That's who guys doing nothing intimate and that's where the cult like feeling of Improv. Comes from because you like we just low? Sit around Jane Dave and if you catch a glimpse of if you watch a minute of TJ Dave show you're like this is so boring to fifty year old man having programs in the sonic commercial also. Because we've just calling them by their first names which are short and everyone's like what the fuck. Okay doctor. Who doctor never seen doctor who great. I don't think so. Rebecca seen some doctor who multiple seasons multiple seasons which is two percent of the show took number. That I'm looking up. Yeah I've never seen it. I know a few things about it from there and also I am terrible productivity so. This took waited until the last possible minute. Jam this up. So it's pumped writing. These is one of the hardest things to start. I ever do once I get into it and find out what I'm doing. It's it's really really fun once you take your when once you realize you're like oh. I just have to like I. This doesn't have to be anything like. Oh why was I dreading writing for like? This is the least rules I've ever had to some. Do you either do it exactly right. And it's perfect or exactly wrong and it's also still want something I realized from the show is that the doctor is replaced but like even within the reality of the show. It's like we have a new doctor. Wait what but it's the same. It's the same doctor. It's the same new person new body new skin suit type thing. There's only one there is the same. It's the same source then. It's the same person. But they look different. And then they have different characteristics based on the new so sorta like Edgar suit right. Yes I know where it's like the haven't seen Ashley every example that taught it's sort of like the thing only I have ever seen. So it's like the twilight zone episode the reboot everybody was on. Cbs CBS all access. Right Jane Dave. I'm pretty sure it's like the doctor gets replaced with a new actor. But it's not like oh now that. I'm playing Todd Sklar. We just pretend. I'm todd sklar no we. It's under the impression that I look different. The doctor walks around in like a new doctor. Body language is different. But you have the same baggage in the same memories. But you're regenerated you're like almost reincarnated but you're still you still have your same brain. The dodgers are emeralds. Like sort of like the president or Superman in those worlds with like. There's the doctor right. Yeah and then. The doctor is a woman now. Now it's the first time but definitely could have been a woman anytime also doctors always been white and that's totally nuts because the doctor is an alien doctors an alien yes what is going on now will not be upper in somewhere most of the characters on the show. What's well I should tell you about it after we read front gorging with our on this I mean we knew it was gonna be all the paper in this movie is blue and it's like all right so cast it up however you want to cast it Rebecca or you're going to be reading with us. Can you read the doctors since I did write? That doctor is the female. I'll read nurse. Who I and then? Why don't Kyle and todd? You guys can be Mardi and biff decide amongst yourself who taught any proof now. It's your calm in your. I always have been all right. And then Kyle you can be coach and then there's hardly any characters and realizing no dahmer you can't be you can be crank yankers. Okay I got I got. It doesn't feel like a spoiler. I got Mardi biff. I said you were coach right side. Emt as well. Todd okay. Yeah that should be. There's hardly do you want to do stage directions. Kyle it's up to you can new Nurse has way more lines. Okay nurse and then. I'll do the fill-in characters. Yeah why don't we do that? Okay idea how it's supposed to. Ob Nurse Your nurse. Who are so. Dr Who nurse who you said you were biff. If then I'll be Mardi cool and then I'll also be coach and cranky anchor and do you want to be. Emt Yeah all right so you're busy.

I only see when Shit hits has hit the fan. We got bad news. We need to travel back in time and fix yes of course. Isn't that what we always do? I guess so. I'm really not sure what it is exactly that we do. Well no time to figure that out. Let's get on the phone booth so we can time travel like like bill. And Ted's I feel like we were probably first nurse nurse doctor and Dora Phone booth inside is a guy with his shirt off jerking off. I'm Superman I swear to God. I'm not checking off.

And this is Tina Marvin. She would invent a new genre in porn. What genre. That's just it. We have no idea fuck now. We have to save that. The booth drops out of the portal into Exterior Cave Area Paleolithic Times. What are we doing here in the year? Negative a million or whatever. I can't believe you're the doctor. We're at the Tigris and Euphrates the cradle of civilization. We came here to kill the original man if we kill the early man then cult leader. Deacon Mavis is never even. I can't believe you're the nurse. If we kill the early men none of us will exist nurse who looks off into the distance and nurses over your own speaking of early man. If we don't get out of here early man we talk. And there's look up to see two cavemen galloping at them on the backs of woolly mammoths remember. We don't want to affect the past too much.

I agree but cool it a little bit. Better Technology and technology based like why job or some Shit Wifi hand job. Yeah it's where you get tugged off anywhere room from a single modem. Okay that actually sounds dope. I hope it doesn't have anything to do with feet. I try and be open and not king shape. Anyone feedstuff sketches me out Cute feet as much as the next guy. I'm just not seeing seeking them out. Yeah when we were in Med school and we were picking our focuses. Anyone who went with podiatrists roasted it was truly the second worst focus you could choose. What was the worst time? Doctors Make no money and there's no chew stuff overhead and pharmaceutical incentive programs. This is like four pages of on broken dialogue jamming both time doctors in podiatrist at the same training just about until the last semester when we get divvied up and I start time traveling and they start scraping bunions. Why choose that I know here? When's here? He's terrible three hundred impression. This is SPA. Justice terrible hoped doctor and nurse exit the phone booth to exterior gladiator coliseum. Thousands of people's until legance are on their feet clearly enthralled by a battle going on between gladiators there are tigers. Change up to the walls. All growling at people instaflex as I was saying. What are we doing here? Remember from the beginning co-leader from earlier. Well he is of Roman descent so we thought we'd find his ancestors here. Do you think it was. Maybe a bad idea to land in the middle of a fight. Thought they'd be distracted. Everyone fighting to them. Turn store them and start. Charging the doctors completely distracted the combatant wearing armor and a miniature shave. Tell me also happens to have open toed. Shoes gladiator sandals to be exact.

I thought it was great does Okay Rebecca obscene a couple of seasons. Do they ever they have to do the? Who's on first? Are they named who? There's definitely punny jokes occasionally related. But the show's been on for so long. I mean I don't know how much they can really get away with still doing that. I also met my ask. I really wish it was still. You could submit you ever hear those stories about old writers who are like. I just emailed David Letterman. I've got a job. I wrote. Five hundred cheeseburger chalkboard puns for burgers. Thinking. I could get a job just writing the cheeseburger puns for Bob's Burgers and I sent him my agent and they were like this. They don't hire. This isn't how it's all been done wrong as Burger punts. That's like what I am best at. We'll be writing the cheeseburger board for that job. I don't know 'cause I imagine. Whoever writes this show is also good at it? They're like in season in ninety four hundred episodes? They're pretty good at that but they're also very good at fully half hour narrative they make like the best family. Sitcom on taking the mantle for me for King of the hill for accurately representing a middle class family on television. Oh Wow I gotta watch never got caught up. In Bob's I've never. I've seen like a couple of bits but I'm not gonNA being voice on it because I think you do a really good Like they're always like Funny Angsty Middle School kids. Do you know what I mean and I mean that's pretty much what I am now. Thirty seven but it's really It's really good. It also is. It is never the daunting stakes that mini shows carry with them. Now and let's it's it's the most escapist thing there is nice but I do think I always thought the hill showed Sort of like a nice look at how like a family and I think Bob's Burgers Kinda showed you don't people like wanted to okay. What more specifically I mean like all the articles that come out and they're like look at this look Dover Middle America this is why they turned to trump. And this is sort of. And everyone's like look at these and I'm like no no no the thing that everyone thinks. These middle-class disenfranchised white families are is mostly closer to Bob's burgers where it's a guy trying to run his own business and it's less the guy who is self identifies as a Republican in loves guns and wants to be on the news so he says he's an independent. It's more it's more like there's unfortunately a large swath of people who are just like my landscaping business does slightly better. If I get taxed less and off to make all their decisions and it's not coming from a place of malice. Yeah I mean I hope I can fuck in high rewatch for a while. I watch with my friend in San Francisco has a lot of smart Guy Gerard. Smart goal really really good. Look at sort of like a middle class family. Where money is the money is still the overarching pressure on the single father. The entire time. But then it's just like a family comedy. And it's got like a Omar gooding and it's pretty funny. Oh that's Omar gooding in that you. He's the friend Mo- wait like Oh marketing from like wild and crazy kids. Yeah brother Yeah. What was the one who was not embargoed from Cuba? So we folks Oh doctor who saw those writing and I was like they would be so pissed off. I just and I almost brought in just six pages. I went to the machine now that I think of it. There are multiple episodes where the cold open is. Someone says quick at the doctor and someone says or he says I'm the doctor and someone goes doctor who I love it. Person Be submitted. They're GONNA be okay. I got a. I think this this is a show that has now too daunting both yeah episodic amount which I had no idea was in nearly. Maybe there's eight hundred eighty five episodes ninety seven missing episodes two hundred ninety stories. So we're looking at a thousand things. Yeah but a lot of people that watch it now like people like me only watched it after like when it came back it was on a very long hiatus when it came back in two thousand five data like the generation also can tell you like oh just jump on. David tennant years old British man. Hide him for a while but then the it's almost a subset of nerd culture. I'm afraid to enter myself into. Oh Yeah Yeah. The worst thing about being a fan of anything is the other people. They ruined everything. Kveta dock with WHO loves doctor. Who just like very be great. If you wash it but it's kind of a thing I love like it's not like stores like if you don't watch this honestly how do you get my shirts or whatever but it's just it is? It seems like such a specific. There's a homework homework tier two doctor. Who which I think nerds love because they love to have that barrier for entry of. Hey if you want to consider yourself a fan. I hope you have a thousand hours. This is there are certain episodes that are really exquisite lake damning take-down of humanity really really amazing and then there are other ones. That are real stupid. Twilight zone level of hits like some of them are like connick and watch without having seen a lot of it. You just can get a little bit of context. I'll watch episode eight hundred ninety one if you like eight. Nineteen twenty and three three three. That's eight nineteen eight twenty three gone thing. I I like to Rewatch the twilight zone and everyone who loves the tomorrow people talk about like his peel's coming out with his new twilight zone. Well the old ones first off. It's my favorite argument. Is this new ones. So political when it's literally the most political show that's ever existed and then like in the old ones great and you're like half of the old ones aren't great. Half of them are bad. There are at least a quarter of them are incredible. According to shows are like the best thing. But it's sort of like snl. Yes where people like. S. Nineties was great. And it's like no the best of Will Ferrell. Dvd is funny. Like you know what I mean. Yeah if you took the best sketch off of every three episodes you're going to think the show is perfect right but if you watch an episode from Nineteen ninety-five was anyone funny. Nineteen ninety-five Watch an episode from Nineteen Ninety Five Year. Like oh there was too good sketches. Wait a minute. I'm watching the Sun Comedy Central. It's been edited down to one house already missing for like we've limited it so much and then when you re watched some of these old I tried to watch the first season as an al all the way through each episode and it moves fucking slow. It's heavy and you're like and that happens so later on it's ninety minutes you're not supposed to have a high hit rate so little sketch produced on a weekly basis right exac on the level of having to appeal on television right so but then you look at. Shit like everyone's like The nothing was better than the nineties now. Classic was You know everyone's it's Farley. No it's feral. No it's Chevy. No it's yeah and then but if you watch sambergen hater which is like around when we all started to quote unquote hate. Snl and the guys. They're fucking they're really good. There's just as good if hits anyone has a lot of really forgot it. It is it just because if you remember twenty years ago you remember all of the things that made you love it. Which is nine sketches from a whole season right like you didn't watch week and then it was also. That was the thing happening that week when when bill when Bill. Hader did VINNIE VICI. I wasn't like twenty six with my friends. But when I saw will Farrell do Cowbell Cowbell Lord of the doctor? It's it's and that's kind of. There's there's so much of the stuff I feel like. Twilight zone is can be hit or miss but I feel like tales from the crypt was one hundred percent through like that but perfect to watch. I think there's like a bad story every like every second or third episode. There's a bad chunk. Chunk is like this is so fucking weird. I can't believe this is the critter. The X FILES EPISODE SORT OF APPEALING ABOUT. It still really love this one. But that's weird. Yeah I love the X. Files and I generally say I guess the X. Files nerd subculture is about what I think. Dr Who is is probably to the people who have been hanging on and this is their favorite thing. But it's like the nerd stuff that's never become superhero level. Or you know what I mean or the like the to the level of becoming the most common but like the X. Files for me generally my rule for how I thought it would be would be the less special effects. The episode had the better effect. I think it was going to have because the more monstrous or physically alien. The whatever supernatural was right. The less nineties on network. Tv show. It's not going to have a really just. There's even a really great episode of the has to do with like baseball An alien who came to Earth just to want because he loved baseball so much and the little detail one Costanza to was it. Jason Alexander Show Right. I just remember Costanza having a tail definitive tail. Bits you WANNA talk breaking up but I would. I watch tales from the crypt through my the door of my room to the living room when our parents because they liked it they were watching it and I saw the I saw the intro. Where the thing pops up at the end of keeping the KRIPKE burden laughs or wherever it scared me from the show and I never watched the Brady WanNa put the Kripke for and everything we make. It's just a visit. Say impossible to get the rights to it is possible to fit in where it's not it doesn't make sense ever but just like a random crypt keeper just like beetlejuice. You could put that in anything and it makes Justice Little Sam calling back to align from podcast for five months before this one. I the deep fan. I got to say because every time I tell comes up. I started talking about this on raised by TV. And I just WANNA put it out there in the ether on here on. Never seen it. I'm here for tales from the Crypt reboot where Betsy SADAHRO VOICES. The crypt keeper. That they're out there. I would watch the fuck out of that Unfortunately for tales from the crypt. She's going to be too unavailable worksheet. Longer they wait because their careers. It's going to be huge by the time they hear this. Who KNOWS BETSY SCENARIO NEW? Show this new opportunity this. She's killing should've done it year ago. She's going to be the spearhead going or at least the fourth movie. Let's do please. Bordello blood to to the Weird Jamaican one and all right. We got a. We got to get a game and we got some cards right right. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA play game here on. The podcast called before to open the fucking songs he's got. He's got theme songs. We've got music for every game in the podcast where the way it's tremendous. We didn't play the game either. Did we know we didn't you? Were going to do that. Up Top and then move features. Kyle's dad is described in never having leaky all right. This game is called movie trailer across data describing having only watched a movie trailer never having heard of the movie the game so I'm going to play audio. It is insane every time I described the game because it is the title again but the words aren't all capitalized. I'M GONNA play this one. You may have heard some before.

Everyone at the campus in another shot of the bus driving through the desert. I I remember this one because I I was not in the room when you recording but I heard it and I got it immediately. I loved this movie five times that was easily the hardest one I've ever face value one of them and it's insane to listen to this. Because you're you're saying to yourself like Oh what because I'd never saw my what could possibly mean he's describing the trailer he's watching. Oh it's literally like therapist being like what do you see? A title of the game. Describes it perfectly then the description does and still until you hear you like? That can't be it. Yeah you would think you didn't realize it was like a real time recollection as your dad watches footage in record feeling Henry Winkler. I don't know if anything besides scream too. I feel like that's like he's been in other. He was in happy days. So there's that too but yeah either the orange everyone's wearing orange at the desert camp with the fuck could that I was hoping camp nowhere for a minute. But then that doesn't describe that at all. His name is the same backwards and like the the tiny tiny intense lizard is a very funny Heavyweights heavyweights that's Jerry Stiller. Playing old guys here it's I love heavyweights always phenomenal. Wow Wow orange outfits. The desert a bus a kid doc.

I do it in the thing. Yeah No my Dad. Watch the credits. And he goes the he's he's a big Demetri Martin. I recognize his anyway. All right one more if you get the harder way more fun than I thought it was going to be. This one is so hard that last one I thought was one of the easier ones. Good luck okay. A lot of shots New York. Okay it is. He said that he made it to the top by doing work for this guy. A lot of shots of this guy with his gun. He's doing something to his family. This guy is in a Russian hat. Shot somebody and now everything slowed down. He has to bring them all together. He's walking through the journalists. His car blew up. He is angry but it's not very convincing. He said it's a wonderful life. If you can get away with it. He's mad at everybody I guess. Holy Shit Wow. That's really hard is a body. Yes Oh my God. That is so impressive. That would be the trailer for that movie that is. That's the best movies ever come off that I'll tell you I want to know what laxative for me I had not seen Gaudy. I've just seen the trailer and I know some. I know it's like legendarily bad. It's EAS- movie right. He Direct Donnelly direct everything from Ontario directed but the thing that really sold me for was because he's really angry but he's not selling your dad's notes in the trailer is like accidentally guys not a good actor. They do a thing son. It's of like the the narrative devices like Interview with him and his son and son over. The course of the flashbacks somehow looks the same age. Maybe even older when he's younger. I've never seen them ever done my entire life. I couldn't tell you the age of this kid at any place he's actually also played Alba Pacino with the facial technology so while we got a game now called before and after hours and how this game works. If you WANNA play you I guess I sent them all. You already Okay I might have ruined it okay. I get excited writing them and I sent her what they're going to be and she brings me back down to earth that it's always time Yeah I mean so what happened is we. Don't overanalyze. How much are lying? Ted Talks about this movie. Overanalyze this my smash. Two movie titles together in one movie title. I'll read you the smash together plot and you tell me the title.

I know nothing about that movie. Except that Mara Wilson and at some point. There's something called the pokey colds full of spikes. Oh it's like an iron making. It is an iron maiden. Remember that being Danny devito movies psychotic thought. It was the same height as her and it was directed by Danny Devito. Yes yeah and narrated by him but he also plays the dad in a different voice on. Yeah Dad's car salesman and like the ultimate like slummy. He's it I really like Matilda. Do I think it's like a kids movie that holds up and I think I got to watch Wilson? Step Ma no loops. That's probably why you didn't get learned the word dip face and then I said it took it at school and I got detention for real dip face. My one of my nephews was quoting their grandmother and said like yeah and she was cursing like crazy. She said mother. Fucker COP's a cop sucker is worse than curse words. I'd rather my kid be a cock sucker. Then a copy edited police state doctor who paging Dr who yes. I really thought that that was going to be What's it called? The train it was that would have been really fun. It was. We switched it last minute. I think it'd be really fun. Let's write this down sometime. They won't be anybody and we'll just answer yes or no for whatever over we feel it for a little while and see how long we can keep it going. And then I think whenever they make a big swing of I guess you just say they finally guessing no really excited about it. What do that do that for me? Once I forget that idea the rusted root the rest route hint is that they're on the soundtrack. That's the first time really. Yeah Mathilde soundtrack sitting at laptops my screen stupid. Look that up. That's impressive both. Both you guys are sitting go. Is that true? And they both got no way to find out. I'm watching porn correct. Yeah Dude Send Me. Is that what she makes breakfast?

I CALL CAKES. Bruce cakes because of the giant cake that kids. If it's like a huge moist chocolate cake I call it a Brucie cake because that scene where the kids all the cake and Matilda's so funny to me seen as that seen as torture but when I think about it it makes me want cake.

I, a podcast is returned Robert Evans, behind the bastards. Jim Baker part to. declutter. Guests, Hello. Mark! How are how are? Just wonderful. That's good. That's good. I I am experimenting with using less words the normal. In the hopes that will make me easier to understand. How's that going for you, buddy? Morley yeah poorly doesn't doesn't work well But? You know what was working great. In the nineteen eighties was Baker gripped fucking. He's really hitting it out of the Goddamn. Yeah Nineteen eighty-seven would prove to be the high point for Jim and Tammy Bakker's empire of you know whatever you WANNA call it. That year opened with PTO. Breaking ground on the Crystal Palace Ministry Center a hundred million dollar construction project. So that's a they have expanded quite a bit at this point Now. This is I'm sorry. Where where is this again? At the time? WHAT STAY HERITAGE USA? It's I think South Carolina South Carolina Okay Yeah so the the Crystal Palace Ministry center was supposed to be like the palace itself was a Gargantuan glass structure, nine, hundred and sixteen feet, long and four hundred and twenty feet wide. It was a full scale like representation of Victorian era building. From London. It would have a three hundred seat auditorium and a five thousand seat TV studio. Jim Bakker bragged to everyone who listened that when complete the Crystal Palace would be the largest church on Earth so that's. Wow Yeah by nineteen eighty six P. T., l. had more than twenty five hundred employees and revenue of more than one hundred twenty five million dollars per year. The Heritage USA theme park was hugely popular. More than six million people visited that year and again only Disneyland and Disneyworld were more popular so on the surface. It's not crazy that they would embark on one hundred million dollar construction projects that seems pretty easily within their means, and yet on the very day that ground was broken for the Crystal Palace Tammy Faye Bakker suffered a calamitous mental breakdown. Now. When it came to popularity outside of the Evangelical Christian Bubble Tammy Faye definitely outshone her husband, her heavy makeup, and regular, crying fits running down her face, where regular subjects for parody Bloom County made a lot of Tammy Faye Bakker jokes on that. Phil Hartmann did a yeah yeah. Yeah Yeah, he did a great Tammy Faye like she that she's definitely like the one who kinda cracked into the mainstream, the most right. But the hysterics were not like just something she did for the camera or anything like it was, she had serious emotional regulation problems in part as a result of the stress of running a business that was constantly on the edge of collapse because of financial crimes. They were committing That's not great for your. The you. It's not great and so on that January Day She had a mental breakdown, and as don hardest or the former PTO had a security later called quote. They left me in the house alone with Tammy, and that's when she started hallucinating and I couldn't believe. I'm there by myself with this lady and she'd taken her clothes off and Tammy didn't do that kind of stuff around me. We all knew she had some prescription drug problems, so she's is a bad breakdown and two months later. TAMMY's problem grew serious enough that she required treatment for chemical dependency. as it becomes the norm, the bakers took to the airwaves and recorded a whole very special episode about Tammy Faye's battle with drug abuse, and again this went over well with their audience, like the fact that Tammy had been abusing narcotics like didn't slow the donations down at all or make them any less bluffed by their. You see their faults and. And they want to help they. WanNa help Oprah problem exactly what didn't go over well with the audience was a blockbuster article in the Charlotte Observer published just days later, revealing the sordid details of the rape that Jim Bakker had committed on Jessica Hahn. So that comes out in eighty, seven two, and well, this is happening. The Observer continued to tear into Bakker's ministry for its flagrant misuse of funds. They published more than six hundred stories in nineteen, eighty, seven alone so they are six on here. They are fucking tearing into. The Charlotte Observer once. This stopped, and they put in the fucking groundwork. And they revealed this massive chain of fraudulent fundraising fake lifetime memberships incorrect tax exemptions based on its status nonprofit religious organization. It's revealed. The FCC actually launched an investigation into P.. T. L. Back in nineteen, seventy nine over three hundred thousand dollars in funds raised for missionary work overseas. That was spent on the theme park instead. It becomes clear that the theme park has been losing money for a while, because it's just so fucking expensive, and all of these things that he keeps adding to it or so ambitious so they're like raising money for other things than spending them on this theme park because fucking Jim Baker loves his stupid theme park. It's pretty cool. So. Jim Raise huge amounts of money for overseas ministries, and his followers donated that money in the hopes that he'd send out preachers and providing humanitarian aid to impoverished areas. Instead he routed millions of dollars of this money and pumped up his theme park. So the park blood millions a year much of gyms. Criminal Behavior is dedicated to plugging that hole in nineteen, eighty eight. He was indicted on eight counts of mail fraud, fifteen counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit fraud between this and the big reveal that Baker had spent another two hundred sixty five thousand dollars of church money bribing his rape victim. There was no way for Jim and Tammy to stay at the head of the PTR. Falls apart very quick so. We have found the line here though this is where it hits, right. So. That's good that there's a line. this. This proves to not be something that you can like. Get on TV and be like Hey foggin. This is what I did, and it's fine because I'm giving myself up to God that there is a line to how do that. Yeah or at least there what's? Our old friend Jerry Falwell sailed into the gap to take over the ministry and try to right the ship, and if he thought doing this would be an easy way to turn a dime, he was very very wrong. It quickly became clear that due to gyms, criminal mismanagement, the ministry owed nearly one hundred million dollars to various creditors and more than fifty five million dollars in back taxes follow resigned less than a year later, and accused Jim. Baker of being quote. Probably the greatest scab and the cancer on the face of Christianity in two thousand years of history, my God. There's some there genocides in there and. There's. There's a there's a good clip of follow just before all that where he they're like seventy million dollars in debt and he erased a goal. If they wanted to get twenty two million in a month, he would go down the walk down the water slide. Yes and they raised that money and he went down the slide in his suit. Yeah. It's amazing. Twenty two million dollars imagine asking people to do that. It's so it's so good. It's good and cool so. Jim Baker was quick to tell the New York Times that without a miracle of God. We will never minister again, but it was clear to every rational observer that he tammy just stepped back from the flaming wreckage of their ministry to wait out for the inherent forgiveness of the well meeting rooms. Who supported them? Alas, for Jim, he would have to weather a massive criminal trial before this could happen. Tammy Faye escaped indictment, and there's a great debate to this day as to how much she actually knew. It's probably fair to say. She was more or less than equal partner, and was fully aware of the enormous intercontinental scam that paid for her houseboats in for coats, but she escaped without legal consequences, and her husband was not so lucky their former. Former employees road on him pretty much instantly. Steve Nelson a p. l.. Employees who was responsible for the lifetime membership program testified in court that memberships had been deliberately oversold. The actor, portraying his boss and God to a court of law was more than the old man's constitution could take, and he collapsed on the stand as the court sketch artist later recalled. When he fainted, it was this silence and a voice from the audience came up and said Oh he's giving his life to God and Bakers Attorney called him up and said Jim Jim is if there's going to be a miracle, he can bring him back to life. Sounds like a fun court case. Good time. Nelson was not dead, and as the trial continued. Jim Bakker had a complete mental breakdown himself. The very next day he began hallucinating reporters outside the courtroom were insects his. His head of security recalled later that night. He was curled up underneath his attorneys couch. I think the weight of that trial in the weight of everything he had done good and bad just crushed him. Yeah. Yeah well. I would hope so. You. Think's GonNa Happen. So Baker was committed to a psychiatric ward in federal prison in the trial was put on hold for six days when things finally concluded on October Fifth Nineteen, eighty-nine Jim was found guilty on all twenty four counts and sentenced to forty five years in prison. He was also ordered to pay a half a million dollar fine. appealed, but the court withheld his conviction, they did grant him a sentence reduction hearing, though and drop those forty five years down to just eight, and he only actually served five being paroled in Nineteen ninety-four. So that's great. Five years steal millions of dollars rape a woman five years right right back in minimum. Security prison yeah. and His cellmate was Lyndon Larouche. Good. Boy, so I'll ask for Tim Tammy Faye was not a waiter. She filed for divorce while he was in the clink and married guy named Roe Messner, a contractor who helped to build heritage. USA Tammy knew how to pick him. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty six was convicted to twenty seven months in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud so. Weirdly Tammy Faye dies and I. Think Two thousand seven. She gets cancer, but she and her second act is actually kinda sweet like she becomes purely for purely ironic reasons, she becomes a gay icon because of her like makeup and everything like she seen as yeah like a lot of drag, queens and people like that will like want to emulate her makeup style is like so garish and out there and kitschy. My first exposure to her was when she was on that Vh. One reality show the surreal life. Yeah, remember that with Sherman Helmsley in the guy from smashmouth. It's amazing. Yeah. and She You know she'd said. That as had her husband about gay people and P.. T., L. and I don't think she ever like came out, and just like I was wrong, but she did state later in life that like when everything collapsed the only people who were there for her was the gay community because they right yeah. So That's interesting. I don't know what to say about Tammy Faye Bakker. She's an interesting person. So once he was out of minimum security prison Jim Baker wound up briefly in a halfway house before his fall from grace. He don't a fifty five foot houseboat fifty five thousand dollar Rolls, Royce a forty five thousand dollars Mercedes Benz along with numerous palatial mansions all around the world. Afterwards, he wound up living in a rented farmhouse in north. Carolina there Jim Begin to execute an epic plan to rebuild his empire. It started with the publication of his second. Titled! I was wrong, which is at least a better title than if I? Did it yeah true. Yeah He seemed to repudiate the Prosperity Gospel beliefs that had dominated his first ministry. He wrote I was appalled that I could have been so wrong and I was deeply grateful. That God had not struck me dead as a false prophet. So. That's interesting. The book was step one, but Jim was going to. achieve his goal, which was to just do the same thing he done before a second time He knew he was going to need the sell himself to a new community. A community open minded enough to forgive someone like him. He found this community in Los. Angeles California at a place called the international dream, center. And according to The Washington Post quote there he lived in a cramped and crumbling room with a son Jamie twenty two in received visiting reporters eager to chronicle his recovery. All the glowing articles about the new Jim, Baker mentioned his rough life in the ghetto, including the Kremlin raw and. Yeah, so jim throws himself on the mercy of the Black Evangelical Christian community. That's who goes to win. His chips are down and is surprising. Is it might seem? They took him in some of this had to do with the fact that as I stated PT, L. had been very popular with the black community in the baker had always been relatively good on racial issues so many of the folks that he reached out to in l., A. remembered him from their childhood. But as the post reporting continues, that's not the only reason he was accepted. Baker story temptation collapsed prison loss resonated with many poor black folks in l.. A. You know this is obviously gyms actual experience of crime in prison. Larry. Yeah, he was good at spinning it. They they at one point like when he was doing the revival tour, they interviewed a number of the folks who are in line to buy his book in La and I want to quote from that now. One of the MRS former cellmate at Jessop Nathaniel Mathis thirty, two now, working at a telephone company who showed up to wishes friend well I can relate so much to him how he was stripped of everything. Mathis says like Jim I lost everything. One hundred and ten percent, but the Lord works in the Lowest Valley's Lawrence drew in his friends are all black men in their twenty s just out of prison on drug, related or similar charges in four hours. They have to show up at a janitorial job for manpower for Jesus. They're halfway house alternative all hopeful that their lives will soon change and they looked back or for inspiration. Osha, all of us can relate to him. Says drew who has just paid twenty five dollars for Baker's book and waiting patiently to have it signed. He's the underdog, and that's what we are underdogs. He's real. He's very real, and now by which he means after the prison term. I think he can be more powerful than he ever was. Who? Yeah, that's. That's not what you'd guests right right? Right what what is going on there? What is like that mindset? I don't get it. Yeah, it's people. Just, like just. Ignoring exactly what he did is I mean just like obviously is like. Folks today are just exactly the same minded got whatever you know. He's fighting for US I. Guess I I don't know I don't understand it. Yeah I it's hard to understand. Some of it is just that like. As general rule, the the the Black Christian community is considered to be is is extremely forgiving. Right like like a number of prominent figures in the American history have after doing something bad like show up at like a black church, and giving a speech or something, and like you know done the the mea culpa there because it's kind of a good place to do it. and. There's a lot of complex reasons for that that I don't feel competent to get into, but it's like it is a trend particularly for like white people who do something really bad. Like I'm going to wipe this away by yeah, I don't know. The thing that happens. Yeah so, that's. Good. That's fun. Yeah, now one of the things ironically that helped Jim Baker in crafting his act to was the fact that he'd never been a very good preacher. In the theological sense, all of his sermons ideas were just cribbed from more original thinkers, people oral Roberts. It was hard for him to come with on his own, because Jimi dropped out of Bible, College. Never quite finished reading the Bible. and. It would seem to me that this would be a bad thing to reveal after you've spent thirty years as like a an expert on Christianity, but Baker leaned into the successfully, and he flipped it into a positive, because now he could start claiming that he'd learned the Bible in prison. And that like that taught him more about his faith than than Bible College and this is. This is how he learns. Prosperity Gospels wrong as well. He's in prison. He gets to really focus on the Bible for the first stipe. Amazing griff kits an amazing gripped. From The Washington Post he learned above all that the meek shall inherit the earth that has forty room, mansion and air conditioned Doghouse in twelve cars were part of an ungodly arrogant lifestyle. A realization he came to a few months after he was initially denied parole. I believe the Bible said above all God wants you to prosper well. When I went to prison, I began to study the Bible and I realize that. Jesus Christ didn't have anything good to say about money. He says in his sermon. He called money the deceitfulness of riches. He said Whoa unto the rich. And this plays really well to create a poor black people in L. A. and it's just. It's amazing that this is coming from this fucking guys mouth, but it it works. It's something else. I don't. I don't understand I. Don't know that I ever will. If guys like Jim, Baker are drifting on easy mode, or if he's like the fucking if he's just that good, it's impossible for me to really tell. But it works. Yes? Jim reinvents himself as a humble man preaching the word of God from the position of center. He talked about the little log cabin where he lived now, which was really a seventeen thousand square foot home lent to him by a wealthy follower. And he met a new wife to Lori. Beth Graham preacher well with the Harrowing History of abortion and drug abuse to give her the kind of art that really sells to the evangelical crowd, but her real main qualification in gyms is was the fact that she was the spitting image of his ex wife. Tammy only. She was seventeen years younger. and. It's worth noting that like his first wife Tammy second wife Lori that's not for nothing. Right, there's something going on there. And you know where else there's something going on. Where's that the products and services that support this podcast oh? Let's hear about that. Yes. I'm Margaret Evans hosted behind the bastards and you know I read about horrible people and things for a living. It can be a bit of bummer.

Wow those were great. Products pretty good services. Than Services I have to say but. That's a matter of interpretation much like the Bible. So with a stable base of supporters in California, Jim began to tour the nation once more, he built up his time in a cushy minimum security prison for massive fraud into a journey through the eye of the needle. The Washington Post reported on one sermon. He gave in Jericho city. He describes the exact moment of his a penny a story. He calls his day in the pit of hell speaking as if in a few state he recalls vague and spooky details, a door open a madman singing la La la at some point he looked down into the possessed is in the door locked behind him. He was either in the insane asylum solitary confinement. A man was dying. Dying in the next cell, a toilet was overflowing. I had lost the will to live. He tells the crowd I had slipped into a corner of Hell. As I was going insane voice cried out at the Split Second, I was leaving the world. It cried Jim I love you. At first he saw no one than a vision appeared at the door, a man with Brown skin and Brown eyes I didn't know angels or black. He says I didn't know. Fun At then. Skin there black. I. Didn't go that one right. Amazing. Amazing that this place. Not long after that speech, a wealthy swept in and donated twenty five million dollars to the gym and his new wife, Laura could build a new compound film. Their show from the makers instantly abandoned the flock debated Los Angeles, but they were sure to use the story of those people's generosity to reinforce the narrative of their own awesomeness during his tour of America Jim. Some would regularly referred his Los Angeles Ministry as the Inner City that was supposed to, but he would generally slip. Just call it the ghetto, saying things like I found healing in the ghetto. Those people love me so much. People. Laurie also had a number of choice lines in that vein telling one reporter. This is probably not. But out of all the races White Hispanic afro-american. The people of the black race have been by far the kindness Jim. Racist. Oh. A tip for me is if you're starting a sentence without of all the races. The sentence stop. Whatever you're saying, don't. Jesus Christ in real. In two thousand and three, the bakers moved back to the south, a wealthy supporter from Missouri who claimed Jim had saved his marriage paid for them to get up and running in the studio city cafe in Branson. I Love Branson by the way it's. It's the city where this happens in and yet the Branson is like. It is like for for this group of people like Las Vegas, and like Las Vegas La's filled with all these like stars who are past their prime, and so they get. Like that's. Doing, exactly he's, he's doing is like show in Branson. And so they do that for a few years, and eventually they they're they're. Backer uses millions to construct a new compound for them called Morningside, which is basically the same as their old compound, but somewhat more modest, it is not as big and grand, but it includes like a fake main street USA and like basically like it's basically like a weird fake like that chunk of Disneyworld that Jim Baker. Recording Studio. Right, right. NOT AS COOL! Not Nearly as cool as House! No! No definitely not euros. So. They move in their two thousand eight and they've been there ever since, and it's worth noting that this millionaire backer Jerry. Crawford actually owns the prop most of the property at Morningside, presumably because Jim. Baker can't really own property anymore. Because still owes millions of dollars in taxes. Oh, there's like some. Sketchy. Shit given his felon status. That's also unlikely that Jim Baker could have convinced the irs to grant tax exempt status to another one of his organizations that is. Probably, GONNA happen a second time around right, you know. Fool me once. Shame on me for me twice. I'M NOT GONNA make tax exempt again. This is probably why he had to discard all of the Prosperity Gospel nonsense from his first rise to power. He can't ask people to blindly send him money anymore. At least not the same way now I'm not an expert in taxes, but I do know that generally money received as a gift is treated very differently from money that you're saving the sale of a product normally need to pay taxes on a gift. Right like that's kind of a basic rule. Now stick with Vic because this is where the Griffen gets really complicated. This is this is the pivot that he makes, and it's kind of. It's objectively brilliant. So. The main theological shift that Jim Baker undergoes during his prison. Metamorphosis is to drop the Prosperity Gospel Bullshit and pick up apocalyptic rapture bullshit, and it's the kind of it makes narrative sense, so people don't question you know like I thought that it was all about money, and all about like bringing that end, but then I realized that like it's all about God and he's coming back in the world is ending, so wealth doesn't even matter anymore because he can't. He can't promise people to make them rich by donating money to him anymore. So, why would you focus on wealth? So the question then is though. Why does he start focusing on the apocalypse? What is the gift in the apocalypse? Well obsessing over the apocalypse allows Jim Baker to Hawkin endless line of survival equipment, primarily Baker buckets which are dried food storage buckets for peppers and we'll. We'll talk more about those in a minute now. Selling a Shitload of survival equipment would normally mean you have to hand over a lot of that money to the state in taxes right like that's how business works, but this is not a business. See if you know Jim Baker the you know, the blessed mother. fucking thing he's ever going to do is pay goddamn diamond taxes. So, he works out a way to not do that and here's how buzzfeed describes the gift. In Morningside Lingo, these traded supplies or offerings are cold, love gifts. Technically the ministry isn't selling these items. Instead. The organization's business model requires that the ministry function on donation and those donations are a lot easier to get. If people get something in return, be it a Mug or be it a bucket of food for the apocalypse, so there's no purchasing happening. Gift to the ministry it's awesome. Good gift on Real, and it's it's this is where you really really see Jim. Elevate in my mind to like the ranks of truly great drifters, because before I feel like he's on easy mode like there's there's no artifice in in just saying Gimme money, it'll make you rich. This is a legitimately brilliant griffin, and he's one that can adapt so easily. Yeah, just like find out what the next path is. And he's been doing this since two thousand eight. So he's he. You Know Barack. Obama was a huge boon to his business. He claimed an almost immediately that Barack Obama was the Anti Christ. in the end was nigh. And Yeah, in, you might think that his boy trump getting elected would've like actually done some damage to his bottom line because he really supported Donald Trump, but he was able to flip almost immediately into freaking out about a black president to freak out about all the different natural disasters going to matter the that were battering the US. And then also saying that you know if you're against trump. That's God wanted trump in there. Then you're you're for the devil. Devil Yeah. It's so good. It's just awesome. So. He doesn't fifteen. NPR did a deep dive into his survival buckets. The Prep Community tends to refer to as Baker Buckets, and they are not well regarded amongst the kinds of people who keep a lot of survival food in their houses. They're not. They're not considered good. SAWDUST They. You've done so many videos. Just focus deep pans on like these fucking buckets like normal survival food. You'll you'll. You'll port like little trees right packet of what is? Poor in water and you'll start together. It's like Mac and cheese or whatever. Baker fills up like. Twenty. Massive tubs of. Cheese cheesy broccoli soup. SLOWLY STARING DISLIKE MASH! What looks enhanced to smell like vomit and it's. fillers ladle and right from ladle. It's horrifying kind of churches this. What is like what is going on? The Jim Bakker's ads we'll. We'll play some audio from one of them later. His ads for food buckets are I. Find Them existentialist horrifying. Clock, ticking down yeah. It's. Like anything else I've ever seen. But I I wouldn't read first before he drop into one of those videos. I WanNa Read I. From Two Thousand Fifteen. NPR deep dive on his survival buckets quote. Among the freeze dried products available on his website is a fifty day survival, food, sampler bucket, containing one hundred and fifty four meals. It will cost you a hundred and thirty five dollars, but the idea is, you'll be prepared when food shortages hit imagined, the world is dying, and you're having breakfast for kings the food. We've got our hands. Version of this bucket, which contains a variety of hearty dishes, including buttermilk, pancakes, vegetable, chicken, soup, Creamy Stroganoff, Black Bean, burgers Fettuccini Alfredo and mashed potatoes in October three hour long segments were devoted to Baker's assertion that we are the generation that will experience rapture followers must be prepared to survive and continue preaching the Gospel he says, and why, not? As Baker urges by food today so that you can have parties when the world's coming apart. Save for the pudding. The dishes were extremely salty, odd lingering after tastes, and he couldn't agree on which was worse, the thick potato soup. Getting wet cement, the strong chemical overtones, the chocolate, pudding, or disturbing, radioactive orange of the macaroni and cheese. Christ rose. Do you have a segment you WANNA play about the baker buckets before. 'cause that's yeah. They. Talking to me like yeah, yeah, yeah I mean there's like the cheesy Broccoli Rice. Yes, so offensive to watch and. To hear the plops of. Broccoli dropping into the yeah, just like this bright yellow neon yellow. Orange should not. Food should be that color. Almost love crafty and it's. It's unsettling this and I I don't know. Yeah. You can't see them, so it's hard to. Look at. What I love what my hands! But it's hot. cheesy cleaned right Broccoli in there. Wow! That's. Why would you want that of adoptable pizza? If I went gross you out, everyone, I would eat right out of shovel. Wow, let let's this in with the right. There it goes. We're dumping twenty two gallon into the. Everywhere and the right. Now I have forty four. Gallons. What happened to survive for two years or three years? You're GONNA need more. and. It just looks like it looks almost like powdered protein. It's just like. Like I've I've I eat a lot of dried food. I go camping. I do survive. He's just eating. I. I've never like no one else sells. I'm very familiar with how people cell survival food. No. This. The best is the he's like. He must have like extra buckets. He started selling buckets filled with bibles. Insane. and. They recommend bearing the Bible's. For when they need it online. Completely insane. Unbelievable I. It's amazing. It's amazing. He's selling twenty-eight Bucket sampler there for twenty five hundred dollars, donation or more peo-. Branson Missouri. fucking real dude. I'll never understand how this works, but it does. And some good lawyers on his side. I, I don't even know if anyone's tried like there's. This is just the way the law works and it. Shouldn't. You shouldn't just be able to say it's a donation. Here's your product. But. I guess it's fine. We've all agreed not to stop this. It's a pretty cool and good, and I have to know one of the surreal things about watching modern Jim Bakker's ads is that he looks like David. Cross in a costume he later. Definitely part of it, he like he emerged from prison and they kind of. A cap now, and he's got this like beard. Yes, yeah, he's like you've reinvented himself a little bit. You know his look. Yeah, you have to when you do this. So? Vic. I'M GONNA start selling. Buckets of SLOP. I mean no taking donations. You donate twenty five hundred dollars to me. I will make sure forty four gallons of something liquid. hot. Arrives at your door. I'll I'll find a way. and so let's. Send the money over and in the meantime, check out these ads for products that are not donation based and function within the regular economy and have to pay taxes.

Jim Baker wound up on Donald Trump's side of the twenty sixteen election and his political stances over the last few years won't really surprise anyone in August. He said this Hillary Clinton is a very wicked and UNCHRISTIAN woman. She supports gay rights and abortion I would say she is a bright of Satan. If America Alexa, it could lead to Armageddon. And Cool. So, she would have been so much better of a candidate if she was married to the Devil Lake. Less problematic than bill. Yeah Alas. Initially, it looked like trump selection would be bad for Jim's business like I said the whole. President Hillary means Armageddon Line I think he was really gearing up for Hillary Clinton's present, because he would have sold the shit out of food and Bible buckets. You've had this whole thing about like. Ban The Bible. You GotTa Bear Your. Bibles. You GotTa bear your food buried all right. You're the best is like his live feed of of when the results are coming in. They're like preparing for trump. The lose to start their gift again. The same thing with Alex Jones. They had to think on their feet quickly. How get through this now? How do we get through this now? And it was disastrous for Alex Jones in the end. It wasn't disastrous for Jim Baker. I and I I. Don't really know why other than that like Jones is a. Violent End, end. Commits a ton of crimes and I think Jim Baker has been pretty careful about committing crimes since all of the crimes, he committed sent him to prison. I guess that's. I guess that's just it. And I a at the end of this here, I'm left trying to wonder what. Gyms, followers seeing him like whatever you like. You Find I think most people find these videos from show so profoundly unsettling that you were. You've spent dozens of hours of your life. Editing them into. The horror shows that they. They really aren't to try to like highlight that because I guess you. Can you tell me about the first time you ever came across? One of these videos like what it was like realizing this was all going on. There had to be a time before you knew Jim Baker was doing. I thought I came across the the the baker bucket like when he was making the cheesy Brecca, the rice and the massive tubs. Friend Tim heidegger founded. He says you got to do something with this. Because it seems like it's like it's like a skit or something. It just doesn't seem real. You know and like I i. don't know what's up with the people that that I don't know how anybody can just watch that and not be offended. Like how like why is this happening? How why would you give this guy any money, but? I think I think it's a lot. An because he still has a lot of older people that up with him in the seventies and eighties, and and he's just co culture icon in a way. And you know it's there's a little bit of the Colt mentality to their. Because like even you can actually like by rooms in his studio so you. Live live in the studio. All ladies pretty much yeah, but I've noticed recently even before the corona virus outbreak. Like the the crowd has been pretty slim. They've been trying to fill the The rose with like statues and stuff to make you know. Fill the room up a little bit, but. I'd be curious to know how they're doing. Yeah there. It's interesting there This is like you do have to say his. His current digs are much more much ambitious than his original ones and like I. Think Studio has about a sixty seat audience. Oh, if that. Kind of all older women and yeah, it does seem like the there have been less of them lately. Rice reasons but he did. He did slip with the with pushing the silver solution yet he did you got for that his. He's being sued by The Missouri a yeah. I think New, York to like yes. We'll see what kind of damage that does. It's interesting because I think he kind of backed off on the silver stuff once he got. A little wrong on that but I. I know Alex did not Alex Jones. I think he's just going to be like. Fuck it. Let's see what they do. What are you GonNa, do you? Get me and like Yeah Jim. Bakker's whole life is testament to the fact that they don't do that. Much like yeah, you have to commit. Tens of millions of dollars in fraud and violent rape in like rape didn't have any impact on the sentencing. He wasn't charged for it, but I do think played into the fact that like something happened to him like I think if you just committed to financial crimes I doubt he would've spent one like a year in prison, but Yeah, it's. Quite, a quite a thing, anyways. I wanted to kind of into by trying to get into the heads, a little bit of the people who watch this and love this and find him inspiring, because I will never really understand them, but we should try to a little bit because it's important So I found it, buzzfeed article that that interviews a woman who's a big fan of Jim Bakker's. An older lady named Days Green as her last name. Quote I watched the show because I can connect with Jim and Laurie. They seem to be such everyday people. She says the stuff they talk. Right away. Who Either What I grew up in the south. I know the rural parts of this country. I don't know anyone like Gympie. You talking about. Jesus the stuff they talk about the show. It's stuff that we everyday people struggle with and I guess that part is true because they do talk during surely about that. It's helped me to be a better person, so that part I get. Days Green is worried about many things. The LEVIATHANS spirit natural disasters, pestilence bird flu swine flu Palestine. The second coming Rice Isis blasphemy, an immigration, just amazing list of like. Yeah, you should be worried about diseases and naturalism Palestine. No. No, no, no. Immigration. Over the course of our conversation, she expresses fear that the world is crumbling before her that people are falling further and further away from God I am. Awake Days Green says people say that I am crazy, but I am not crazy. Jim Baker is not crazy. We know that something happening and we are trying to do something. Mostly days. Green says she has been called crazy by the church used to attend. She asked the Church to preach on the book of revelation to reveal the truth of the Bible that she believes people need to know because it's happening now. She uses a verse from Hebrews Five, twelve in our. Which chastises young Christians for their dependence on easily digested topics of faith, instead of trying to tackle more meaty ones. Revelation in her opinion is the meat I guess got thrown into the fanatical group. She says because her church asked her to leave days Greens. Faith is tightly bound together with her politics. She says he is Donald Trump supporter. She wants the swamp in Washington. DC cleared out, and she wants America to return to the America. She lived in during her childhood. There's a lot of it there, and that's why mainstream. USA is the theme of his current like compound sort of church thing. Yeah. They want to go back in time and they're very open about that. I'm continuing the article because I think this is important. Her biggest personal causes. Immigration Governor Greg Abbott to get rid of the sanctuary cities in Texas. In fact, Abbott recently signed legislation banning them. It used to be a little shelf in the grocery store that had a few little Mexican things on it, but now there's a whole section of the store that's written in. In Spanish she explains they are supposed to assimilate. It went from like five Mexican families to like around us to like twenty. There are Muslim people living in gram and the town took over the convenience stores. She Pauses I. Don't WanNa have to physically fight those people here on our own homeland for Christian American values, but I will. They're invading force I feel. Go. Yeah. Yeah, and it's. It's yeah, that's what. That's something I mean because he doesn't. I think he does have Muslim guests on his show. I think he could be wrong, but yeah I. Don't know enough about that, but that's at least with this lady takes. Yeah, interesting. Yeah, it's it's pretty wild, and the the language that Baker used around Donald. Trump is pretty wild lang in the run-up to like during the election, he said at one point I'm not supposed to tell you this, but I have eye witnesses. Donald Trump is a very tender man, and he weeps. He wants to please God more than anything else. He wants to be president of the United States and make things right in this country because he loves God Almighty then with his eyes Shining Baker declared. God has called I believe Donald Trump. So. Yeah Baker says trump called him to thank him after his election and they were invited to the inauguration which they attended, they were invited to the inaugural prayer breakfast inaugural ball so yeah. That's get this guy walking around the warehouse and it's normal typical stuff. This good good good for America and for America. I mean. In terms of the rapists in the White House, he's. One of them. Is among them on the list. Yep that's our episode. Lifting. Yeah! Everybody, feel like. My God, I need a bath. A bath in one of those giant pockets for Cheesy Broccoli? My Christ. So. How. How we doing? All right. Yeah! Yep Yep. Robert. you're frozen. I. I know we're all frozen frozen. In awe of the Griff tting tower. Baker fucking incredible. Well, Vic. You want to. Plug your. Do you sell gigantic antic, forty four gallon buckets of slop. I don't at the moment working on it, yeah. To get my dusty food together. Mix It with a little water and you can.

Matt D’Elia Is Confused

WORLD ON FIRE (Sunday Service Edition)

"Hello and welcome to Mattia is confused. This is Matt Julia and this is another makeshift Sunday Service will not be focusing on religion and religious response to various things, oh actually I will get into some of the bridges response of religious right response to the black lives matter protests. All around the country which have been. fucking. Demented to watch the right. Try to spin. Black lives matter as Negative or contentious or bad for America has been truly fucking wild. But. I'm going to try to stay on brand as much as possible and with that in mind. Got Some gaither fucking tunes for you. Is. St. Stories. I love how the people who probably love that song the most and sing that song the most and Treasure that saw the most are the ones that see the fucking shit going on right now and are like. They all deserve it when they see protesters getting fucking pepper sprayed and cracked on the skull and pushed over in their skulls crack on the fucking ground. fucking madness out there. AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL NOT Right fucking now. Before I dive away deeper into that though actually have. A. Announcement to make So. I The merch store has actually been set up and set up for a while. Now I didn't want to. Announce it or make a thing out of it. while all this other more important stuff was going on, but me and my producer realized. We can actually do a cool thing where we announce it and also. Donate a portion of the proceeds from launch week to. Black lives matter causes, and so what we're GONNA do is we're gonNA announced the store and for the next week. not only. Will you get fifteen percent off of your entire? If you use the Code K Twenty Twenty K., a. y., two zero two zero. You will get fifty percent off, but also a portion of the proceeds will go to. Black lives matters black. Lives matter organizations. To support the movement and the cause and all that so. I'm excited about that and I'm excited about doing giving to the cause in the way that I can, and it's going to be. The store is actually the website. You can find it on my website. But the actual store website is Store dot made by Super Dot Com. Made by super is who produces this podcast and it's on that website, so yeah, fifteen percent off with the Code K Twenty twenty, and regardless of the code or not, a large portion of the proceeds will go to black lives matter. and. That's all about that. We're excited about that. Check out the the stuff in the store. It's been a long time coming amid talk about it for a while. I've also been talking about doing video and just to talk about that one more time because the protests are so fucking hectic right outside my door. And actually what's more hectic than the protests? Tenfold Twentyfold one hundred fold. Are The fucking cops and National Guard and media out there. Making it the loudest fucking thing ever the studio setup in my office. which is not where I record the podcast now you can't choppers now, but if I were to court video in the office I set up. If there's ten choppers fucking sky. If fucks up the entire whole thing. Sounds like a fucking warzone. Welcome to Sarajevo. So, I'M GONNA. Wait until the National Guard. And the Absolute Insane Police Force and twenty thousand helicopters in the Sky Go away. Wait until that's over to start doing video. But the stores up. Get a discount. Donate to the cause. And now. But speaking of the kind of people who are cheering on the police. Brutality that is being administered by them. Protesters which actually I gotta be honest it, it shouldn't. Nothing about the police brutality towards the black community surprises me at all that is. Something that. If? You are not aware of that. than. You live under a fucking rock. Or just try to turn the other way. Because obviously George Floyd was was a sort of tipping point. But there's a there's a whole fucking endless list. Of these horrific incidents. Even just in the last year. But what does surprise me? Is that while the world is watching, walk every single person. Is watching the news. Seeing. The frontlines of the protests, some of which have gotten rather intense where there are curfews, a lot of police forces have used that as an excuse to sort of crack skulls and make arrests, some of the accounts of which have been truly truly fucking disturbing. But what surprises me is that cops can't even. Get their shit in line while the when they know what everyone's looking. They can't stop cracking skulls. And pushing over helpless people cracking their skulls on the ground. Even when they know they're being watched. You would think they'd say to each other in some way or another. Hey, look. We all love to cracks. People's cracked people skulls. On a regular basis. We all know we all love to do that. But now that the world is watching, everyone with a camera in their hand is pointing at us. Let's act like we don't do that, so our lives are a lot easier, one would think. That conversations would that will be going on in precincts all across the country. One would be wrong in thinking that. Ever was just going to name a couple of cities, but it's every fucking city stationed in La in New York fucking thing in. Buffalo. With fucking riot! Riot squad whatever the fuck. They call themselves like their in a DC universe movie. The riot squad in Buffalo which was formed. In the wake of Ferguson Riots The Michael Brown killing and in the ensuing riots in Ferguson. Buffalo New York decided to create its own. Squad, in case such a thing happened right so okay, so now flash forward however many years later I. Don't remember I think it was might have been two thousand fifteen. Ferguson So five years later. I might even sixteen fucking whatever it was. It was A. In response to that buffet, the Buffalo Police Department created a riot squad. In case, riots broke out. At the drop of dime, they could have a team prepared as a seventy something of. There's a video of them closing in on a protest in some part of Buffalo. which definitely looks like the most depressing place on earth? Mixed the most depressing place on earth and riot squad police officers. You know something bad's going to happen and something bad happens. It's very very to call him in a peaceful protest is. It's not enough I it's. It's looks like a non protest. What you see on camera is like. Four or five people. dispersed. With great distance between great distances right so they're not even. A crowd. And the riot squad is pushing forward the frontline like they do like. It's like a fucking. Revolutionary War movie. There's like marching in a line and they're trying to get the protesters off of this particular block one of the protestors. Is Is this clearly old man on video. You can tell you don't need to read the fucking description of what the deal is. He's an old man. He moves like an old man. He looks like an old man. The police don't stop. They just yell them. He doesn't move. He's backpedaling, but he doesn't move fast enough. And then one of the fucking police officers just shoves him. Bowling him for. The elderly man can't keep his feet under him. The elderly man falls on his back cracks, the back of his skull, and a pool of blood immediately starts to form okay. then. In. Absolute insane person on steroids person, fashion. The COP starts yelling, saying that he should have gotten out of his way when it's obvious that he feels like a fucking idiot, and he knows basically that his life is over right. So now. He's like any knows he's on camera and he knows there's also other police around. He can't do anything except bemoaned. The fact that the guy should have gotten out of his way. You can hear him cursing should. It's crazy. and. In the aftermath, obviously that officer and I think one other one were. Removed from the from the writing okay. least you could do. Then, I saw headline that actually cheered me up at first glance. It cheered me up. The headline was saying those two officers had been removed from the right of riot squad and then. The other seventy something members of the riot squad. Resigned and I thought Wow in solidarity of police brutality against police brutality, some good cops coming forward coming out against cops, then click on the article and what it was is they were resigning? It's not funny. I'm laughing because it's so absurd. They're resigning because the cops. That did that to that dude. Were punished. Already with the other police officers. Shoved the seventy five year, old man for no fucking reason and smashed his fucking skull. Hey cops. You need trading a lot of departments. You need training in how to handle situations. All across all across the board, all across the spectrum, but you also need lessons in fucking pr when the world is watching, stop shoving. Old Men over and cracking their skulls. Stop, body slamming young black girls in Atlanta, stop. Pushing. From the back. Helpless, young women. And smashing their heads on the concrete because I. Don't know why they're in your way. Those are just the first thing that comes to mind. Stop doing that. Do yourselves a fucking favor? And give the world fucking. Break from seeing you all be shitheads. Starting to get sick of the fucking. Couple of bad apples argument. And over the last few days of seen a few things that have really sort of underscored that Chris Rock at actually forgotten about this, but he has a bit about that. that I suggest you all check out. I'M NOT GONNA. Do It justice so I'm not gonNA, see it as a bit specifically about how you know police, brutality, and fucked up cops, or so to waved off is like Oh. It's just a few bad apples. I don't know if he says this, but the analogy doesn't even hold bad apples. Make all the other apples rotten to. That's what a bad apple is. The whole thing about bad apples, the whole thing about rotten apples. Is that there can't be just one. The Rot spreads wants. The route starts so anybody WHO's trying to say? Oh, there's just a few bad apples. Your knowledge isn't even good for you and your argument. It's not just that it's not good argument. It's not even good for your argument. But yeah, assumed before about the. Protests? The the the. The people who are trying to. Align, black lives matter. And the protests. In the name of it. With some kind of. Nefarious. Nature, they're trying to. A lot of people on the right are trying to align the protests with. Or terrorist when you know, there's obviously been videos of looters. But those are clearly also not protesters. So to say that people who are protesting responsible for the looters is not is not a fair assessment. That's actually a straw man, and that's kind of gas leading the whole enterprise. The protesters protesting looters are taking an opportunity to loot. While, the police distracted. That doesn't put the onus on protesters to not protest. Protest, they'll be looting. That's not their fucking business. Their business is protesting police brutality. Their business is not looting. Their business has nothing to do with looting. That's not what they're interested in. That's not what they're doing. They're protesting. litters are other people. The two can't be conflicted. One happens and the other one sneaks in, but they're not the same fucking group. But the efforts by people and organizations and pundits. And Voices and publications of the right. Have Been. Truly wild to watch. In fact. Before I get into the pundits, right right before I started recording this I saw fucking video. That my man, my main motherfucking man Vic, Burger. At Vic Burger IV dude. Is. A. Genus of our time. Follow him if you don't already I'm assuming you do because you all have good taste because you listen to this show that means you also follow Burger? Who by the way recently followed me back? I think I've mentioned that before, but I'm so fucking stoked about it. I still haven't slept since that happened on. That fucking excited. So this is my biweekly out to Vic Burger, but he just posted something. that. It's again one of these fucking maniac. Driving by protests stops because he's gotTA. Let it be known that actually all lives matter. Hey Man. Get A fucking brain. Understand what's going on? Stop Watching Fox News Two fucking seconds and think on your own anyway. This one is so absurd. It's fucking well to say, but it actually is comical because the guy is. Switch anyway here it is I'm GONNA. Play it right now. Tomorrow is did you see? These. beat. Two things there out besides. Get, away, from a you big guy, which is the worst threat ever? If, you see. The video is hilarious. The guy so much bigger than him and he's talking about how we could kick his ass when the Big Guy could obviously kicked this guy's ass. but the big guy is peacefully protesting, so he doesn't, and he wouldn't. Because it's obvious anyway Obviously, he does that all lives matter because that's what every idiot asshole does now when they got nothing else to say. But he says. Whatever the fuck you want, peace, prepare for war, right? That's. True colors being shown, but also says something shouted over by peaceful protesters, but it's worth pointing out. He says it's about it's not about. Black or white? It's about jobs. Could anything, be. More evidence that someone doesn't use their brain and just watches Fox News and takes its content and folded into their own mind as their own thoughts, and just spits it back out into the world. It's not about black or white jobs. That is just a direct talking point from Donald Trump. To everyone on Fox News into that guy's brain. into the video I just fucking saw. Into the audio played for you guys. There's some fucking insane graphic on my God. They're insane graphic I saw. On Fox from Fox News Rather. That they got in hot water for. Because it's the most just fucking unbelievably tasteless thing right okay. I can't even believe this actually. So S. and P. Five hundred percentage change one week after event. Okay, so this is showing the S. and P. Five hundred changes. One week after various events right and these are the events that use the headline below is stocks soar. Dow Surges after promising jobs report, and these are the events the percent changes after them each event. mlk assassination? Rodney King case acquittal. Michael Brown, death. George Floyd death. Could you? Think of something. Less tasteful. I mean what are the people at Fox? Ever thinking. Whatever trump says. They're going to put their together. Come up with a graph. That works for it. The whole thing trump is talking about George Carlin, and by name. George is looking down right now. On this great day for America, because the economy's good, Hey, man, how the fuck could you have your head so far up your own? fucking ass that you think's saying that is a good idea. How could be that far up your ass? That means your head is so far up your ass. It goes up your ass through your intestines through your chest plate three your neck back up your neck and becomes your head again. That's how far up. Your ass, your head is. That it's just your head again. It's beyond having no shame. It's having no clue. Me Either way. It's having no soul, but it's not no shame. It's no fucking clue. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA. Play some. Take a break in a few minutes, but before I do I, I talk a lot about right wing, watch and I just. I was just scrolling through this morning and it's just out. Of fucking! Control! The gymnastics before doing to try to say the to peg. B. L. M. Shit has. Terrorist or left wing or socialist or communist? So, let's. Get some good selects here. Well first of all. Here's just that Guy Rick wiles who he was Rick wiles was the guy. Was The guy who. Was Clearly desirous of Bill Gates. He was talking about shoving vaccines in his ass. For the whole world to see our and a take off your pants and shove the vaccine up your button like. K.. Hey Rick. You're exposing yourself, you know. But he didn't seem to notice and neither to fans, but now he's back rick. Wiles is back and he's calling on. He's on True News. Which again is the most ironic fucking named for any outlet? Ever, because it's the most Mega Horse Shit Shit ever! Ceric wiles is calling on trump to use the military to since he's labeled. I mean never mind was going to fucking play. The logic leaps. Is like a fucking tadpole was go. They have to be. Outed after hunted down, they have to be To be given a trial and that trial could be military trial. Ear realized they could be given a military trial from. Once, you declared a terrorist organization. You don't have constitutional rights you're akin to. The people have already wary to take into Guantanamo. You may see people in these far left organizations transport the Guantanamo. waterboarded to confess who was funding the organizations while? I Know My Enemies Watch me a hope. Hope you're. Hope soil Japan's. Scared right now because the pendulum swinging. WHO's funding them? People like me. As in. People regular. People are donating to the cause because they care because they want to. because. They know what's right and they give a shit. No nefarious forces are behind the fucking financing of these groups. Grassroots Shit. And Trust me. I know it's common. If you disagree and I'm going to get into that, you're gonNA say oh, but it's George. Soros and just wait because that's what I'm getting into the second hour episode. For now I'm going to keep going on these motherfuckers. Oh, here we go! Here's a perfect. Perfect summation. This Guy Josh Bernstein Cunanan extraordinaire. No one's head has ever made them look more like a a circumcised penis. Than Josh Bernstein's head. Google. Are Here's Josh Bernstein? Talking about black lives matter which by the way we look at him and. You know he's just not qualified to talk about such things. Go what? The black lives matter movement in and of itself is racist. Why very simple because they are segregating themselves saying? That only black lives matter white lives. Don't matter. So if they believe that they are equal, and that all lives matter then maybe they ought to change their symbol and they're you know Hashtag if you will to. Oil Lives matter because you know what. All lives do matter the black while the fucking the hammer at the end there because you know why because all lives do matter, you know what Josh do you know who agrees with you? Everyone at black lives matter because. It's actually not the organization is actually not called. Only black lives matter. You take that first word off because it's not what goes there. You added that and you add that because you wanted to pit yourself against. Did you needed a reason to do that? That's all you mother. fuckers do come up with a gripe for this. There's literally no part of black lives matter. That has only in front of it, and there never has been. It is black. Lives matter not only lives only black lives matter. And anyone who tries to fuck news that argument is a piece of bullshit. Couple more these performed. Oh! Here's a good one, so there's this idiot. I show a lot I. I've brought up a lot on the shows named Mark Taylor, he is a so he caught wall. I was GONNA say, but he calls himself a prophet. and he's on this. Guy the mic files. His show Christopher McDonald has a show called the macphiles. Anyway, these two guys are on their. Waxing philosophical as they tend to do. Just being real fucking vague. Because that suits. Anyone with a super dumb audience. Just be as vague as possible. If. You have a super dumb ass audience. Just say the say. Be So vague that you. There's not even content. And you'll. Remain successful forever. So, here's mark. Taylor talking about black lives matter his his. Hot if I've heard one. A as a hint that where it's gone. There's another reason why these rights are taking place. Guys again gobbles warning about this for four years. Riots are taking. Place is because they're also don't want a I is not racist. just. Generally. I! Think you know what I'm GonNa say I gotTA. Say it anyway generally. You know something is about to be racist as fuck. If the preface of it is, this is not racist. This is just a fact. What follows. Is going to be racist here we go. They don't want the first black president. Bring prosecuted. have his legacy destroyed when the corruption comes out? But it's also keeping the truth coming up, but there's also a very real thing here to try to put the pressure on the president, not the prosecute. First Black President and I got news for nothing's going to stop. It's coming from Dama nothing. This fucking, Obama Gate Shit. Believe me on one thing if nothing else. If trump was gonNA put Obama and Hillary for that matter in jail. He would've done it already because he wants nothing more than that. Okay, it's been more than three fucking years. Nothing's going to happen you fucking. Psycho Idiots. And yet we got dip. Shits like Scott lively talking like this. New, Season a rioting is the purpose of it is to deflect attention away from Obama Gate. nope Obama gained is by far the much bigger story. Previous administration for rockall and his entire team were involved in serious criminal behavior. Note here in the United States and around the world and everything that's been. This has been happening under the umbrella purple. Revolution says October or November of Two Thousand Sixteen Has, been a campaign to discredit and destroy president. Donald Trump. As, a means of protecting the team from criminal liability note, that's what this is all. Note this. No fucking! No, you know the end. Is, the beginning of my argument. No and here's the end. Endless they all say the same fucking bullshit. I saw fucking a Pat Roberts Here's when you know. You've gone too far. When Pat Robertson says something you did isn't cool. Pat Robertson the other day on his fucking show by the way. How is Pat Robertson still alive? He looks like he's one hundred seventy. He's also fucking an insane religious zealot. He's also fucking. It's possible because he's been on for one hundred and seventy years that there's no living person who's. In, total. Said, more offensive shit, but even he is is saying Shit about how trump is handling. The protests in the wake of the murder George Floyd. Even. Pat. fucking. Robertson. Eliza time. Now is the time to say I understand your pain. I WANNA comforts you of thing, it's time we love each other. But the president to the different course he said I am the president of law and order, and he issued a heads up. I'm ready to send in military troops. If the nation's governors don't act to quell the violence that has rocked American city. Matter fact, he spoke of them as being jerks. You just don't do that. Mr President. It isn't cool. And that. Ladies and gentlemen. Is the one and only and will always be the one and only time I've ever agreed with that Robertson. I. WanNa take a break now? Thirty five minutes in on the other side I'm going to get specifically into the madness demented nece. In idiocy. Behind. People talking about. How George Soros is behind black lives matter. And just the General Soros conspiracy theories. In general mother, okay, let's take a break. Don't go anywhere. Matt Elliott is confused will return right after the break.

If only he stuck to religion 'cause now he's doing what. For some reason, everybody on the far-right likes to do which is. Talk about. Hint at or outright accuse George Soros. Of being behind. Not Everything I mean just basically everything they disagree with, but right now particularly. About George Soros. Funding. Black lives matter. where? Let's face it. The enemy were battling right now in the United States is more organized, better funded. I mean you understand that? In these riots that these protesters are literally hired by George Soros False. You, understand. That, you can go to George Soros Dot Com, and actually see where you can sign up to be a protester, and it's like a pyramid scheme false to where if you bring friends, you get paid more money. False. Why do people believe this shit? The George Soros thing has always confused the fuck me and I saw something the other day. Where his? His name. was. Inside the content. Of? This is this is mind-boggling, usually right wing. Right! Wing twitter accounts twitter alone. Per Day Post about twenty thousand tweets. With the name George Soros in it. Need to say, none of them are in support of George Soros, and none of them are true of George, Soros. But since the protests began, they've gone from twenty thousand per day to fifty thousand per. Clearly this is the man people are leaning on as the. Cause or motivator, or at least funder the one funding. The protests! You hear it a lot. Not just about black lives matter not not just about this moment, but you hear it anytime. The right sees some kind of organized force. Come up against them. Just, at the ready at the tip of their fucking tongues is George Soros and this is perplexing. The Guy is ninety. He's been around forever. He's donated to liberal causes his whole life. He is a Holocaust survivor. And then if your brain didn't go ding Ding Ding Ding Ding on that. Let me, help you out. He's Jewish. He's a billionaire and he's Jewish and donates to liberal causes. Now. You might understand why he's. Dubbed the fucking antichrist's and the prime mover and shaker behind everything. The right doesn't like without a shred of evidence. People from Kurt Landry to fucking Tucker Carlson. Will tell you. George. Soros is dismantling democracy. When by the way all he's doing. Is Promoting Democracy. And I mean literally he has an organization. It's called the open society. That's what it's called. and. It's a global effort. To defend and prop up democracy all around the world both where it isn't. And where it. Is Faltering. This is the guys life's fucking 'cause. By the way, the name of the name of the Fucking Organization Open Society actually comes from. A book called the Open Society and its enemies written by someone I believe in Karl Popper from the forties. And popper argued that no-one. No one, person or philosophy or ideology, for that matter can ever really know or say what is true. So we all must be allowed to participate in democracy. Our ideas and shape our societies, because no one person, no one group, no one organization. The one ideology. Can Be right or true for everyone. So, we all have to have a voice. That is what the very name of the organization is derived from. But again any kind of confusion that you might have a wha Soros, always the one that people are saying is is the reason behind this shit. He's a Holocaust survivor. He's Jewish and he's a billionaire. You don't need more than that. That's like fucking. Far Right Nip. The CATNIP for people on the far right. It's like he's. He's a billionaire. And he's Jewish. And he's A. Defender of. Democracy on a global scale and he actually. Is it true Blue Holocaust survivor he is. The reason for all this. It's him. It's just so fucking. You guys are fucking boring. You guys are fucking boring in typical. Surprise US every once in a while you know. Even fucking donald trump is spraying. These fucking Soros. He was he was talking about the the The Soros? Soros was financing the protesters of Kavanagh. You. Guys remember when Cavanaugh. Fuck forget what it was exactly, but it would p.. There were there was something in. The. Halls of Congress where some Republican senators were getting a Jeff Flake was jeff flake was getting on an elevator and these protesters were arguing pleading and yelling at Jeff Flake to please vote against confirming Brad Kavanagh. And trump tweeted out simple shoot about how they were paid for by George Soros. The president. FUCKING! Fucking Day? Chuck woolery former host of the love connection current insane right wing guy. Re tweeted Donald Trump. Donald trump originally tweeted. It's ANTIFA and the radical left. Don't lay the blame on. Then chuck woolery Genius Chuck Woolery tweeted that and wrote just three words. It's George Soros. All for show. You might say. But then. They were just people in the State of Texas? The GOP party within the state of Texas. Two of the leaders. Of the GOP in Texas. Both. Posted on facebook. From their official accounts. Don't believe everything you see. These are operations funded by George Soros. The protesters are agitators hired by George Soros this is from official. Elected officials of the GOP in the state of Texas. Actually putting this shit out into the world. That state Senate. Candidate in Oregon. WHO believes in Cunanan. Also, saying the same shit, it's George Soros. What's up with your fucking? Brains. One thing if it was just our leaders, which is sounds backwards, but if it was just these crazy people in office, and in the public is saying it, that'd be one thing. But people are now actually believing this shit. It's bled out into the world so far and so deep. That now it's just part of what people think. Which obviously is the desired effect now people actually just believe George. Soros is out there funding protests. That are meant to make America crumble from within. All according to George sources fucking master-plan. K.. There's another video I saw. Huntington beach is like a hot pet hotbed of insane Republican people within southern. California, I mean orange. County is actually very Republican. Dana Rohrabacher and she was from that district. Very Rich, very white, very republican and very right wing and he gets like this. There was a memorial being set up. For George Floyd and black lives matter. in Huntington beach somewhere small one just a few protesters and this fucking woman. Just shows up and does this. And get. Your own stuff. This is not a mind freedom. Feed you as my reading, my freedom of speech unsustained by Anton, George Soros. You are violence ripping down all of their signs. Before Memorial. Brainwashed into stage. Riots right now. That's fucking madness. She's calling. The setting up memorial for men who was murdered by the police. She's calling knows people brainwashed. Telling those people that they're paid. That they're brainwashed and paid for by George Soros. Bucking. Crazy. Do. You have to be to do. For people who actually think George Soros is behind this Kinda Shit. And is doing more than just dedicating his life and donating to causes. That he believes in which every fucking person ever does I do that, you know. Thinks he's some fucking puppet master. Think your thought one thought further. Use Your brain. I don't have much hope that you will. But, if you're one of those people, just try it. Try using your brain and generating your own thought. Instead of the one that your cousins fucking friend's mom posted about on facebook. And before. I wrap up. I wanted to talk about. Donald Trump. And his wall. He promised us a wall. He promised wall to supporters. He promised to build the wall between the United States in Mexico. To keep. WHATEVER THE FUCK! Yeah, he would every call him. Batum brazen rapes whatever funky said. And drug dealers out of the country. Didn't do that, said he did didn't. But did. Build a fucking. Fence around the White House. Sealing himself off. From the protesters outside. The Guy. Is Constantly Taking his. Bitch ASS level to Advancing his level of bitch, notice nonstop. He can't fuck and help himself. Promise the, Wall? gave us a wall. Not, the wall he promised. But symbolism of the bucket fence around the White House, so people don't come in. And I guess scare them too much because he hidden bunker like a little baby man. When the protesters were out there the other night. And then he said just down there for a little while. Just really inspecting to make sure was suitable. Hey you're pussy. Then, he needed to save face and get the photo op of him at the Church the Bible upside down, which is a tunnel shit for fucking teargassing peaceful protesters to move them out of the way so he can save face. And try to convince the world that he's not a pussy. that. He's really strong man. But that only made him even more of a pussy. Then, he trots back. Getting the priests protesters out of his way again with pepper sprite again. and builds a fucking fence around the perimeter of the White House. If. You still think he's a tough guy. If you still think he's a strong man. He got. No. Brain. I. Think. That's going to do it, fucking weird time. But. Try to keep your head on straight. If you're protesting. Where mask because there is still a fucking pandemic, believe it or not I know it's not really at the forefront of our minds anymore because of everything that's going on. But it is still going on, so get out there and protest. but also be safe about it, you know. Everybody's fucking crammed together super close yelling. And righteously, but you know. This is the fucking also a hotbed for the virus, so be safe. And also yeah a one more time we will be. The stores the merch store is now open. And radical should on there, and we will be donating a large portion of our proceeds to black lives matter causes. And use the code for a fifteen percent discount. The Code Is K. Twenty twenty. And whether you're remedy, use the code or not. We will. Be donating the black lives matter. So it is. A good thing to do for number reasons and I'm very excited. Get the fucking shit out. There It's been a long time coming and videos also been a long time coming, but once the fucking three thousand shoppers. Above? Right above my home finally go away I will be doing video as well but for now enjoy the MERCH Help 'cause, get out there and protest where a mask stay healthy. Stay Saif. One you fucking come.

We should say that we were talking to you guys about coming on all this happened. We were like Oh. It's both of both groups very busy. I know you guys are doing your podcast but very busy making stuff and and touring gossip stuff like that so like I know. There's been this things happening and rake and then. I think there was a point where maybe it was like a month and a half ago. Where like this is it. And then the world went to share. Yodo exactly. So we're making here on it. Thanks for letting us in your homes. Don't say to how how's it going for you guys. You create some content already from your respective homes. I know you guys a lot of stuff together. What's it what's it like with the being so close yet so far apart? What we've been doing because gus is in an apartment a couple of floors above me with With Sabrina so we've been doing our podcast kind of like this new even recording our video but not seeing each other during the chat. We honestly should do this. We're just GONNA steal but but Yeah I don't know like we haven't been able to do any really sketch stuff together And then you have been working on my video separately Augusta. You've been doing sketches upstairs by me. I miss my boy. I'll say it's amount frayed to say it. I ain't afraid either. We're going to add a good idea. We're GONNA go sometime this next week. We're going to abandon corner of the parking lot at a distance and share a drink together. let's face and sad at the same time he said but also hit you guys on a sketch. Yeah you could do so you guys film it for your respective apartments which are like you know above blow another and it's like gus in his apartment. He's like what was happening. There was so loud and then you know he starts banging on the ceiling and you cut to Eddie in his apartment. And he's like. Oh that begging. It's so loud. But he's like grinding. He's grinding Came down there and then gusts is doing something like really let like a Jackhammer and he's like why is it so and you guys just only can you do it without any audio. Yeah everybody else. Sweat and Bucky took me at lease jockeying to be like online video producer. We'll go this is this is something pretty amazing at where show business a compliment. Kind of You guys are on because are known for certain stuff and then Lisa Go. Hey I actually have an idea for a video or it. She'll do. This is a lot of people like. We're good friends. Zach Aner and he. He does sketches online to to. You know it'd be a good video. And she pitches it but kind of the same way that you just get an email out of nowhere from stranger who's like suggesting the kind of content you should make online. It's ideas are genuinely good. And she's funny. It's it's a weird thing. I don't think if you do the muted way only Iota James. Your idea since then know wondering also I'm wondering who's GonNa make the the the the equivalent of searching or what was that movie where where it's like? It's just a guy this computer but it's not you that's it that's all you can do. But like who's WHO's the online youtube video creative who's GonNa make their own version of that but just because they have to choice you guys Rama Sanders. Who's this way over the top? Like he used to be like a bigger on vine stuffy does youtube stuff now but he's so over the top of that. We're there's like no subtlety to it. It's just him. Yes yes yes I will watch this. I will spend my time for Fred to comeback. Yes Oh my God dude. He's he's laid dormant. What is he doing? Do you think the earth. He's not doing threatening to sue but he has a youtube channel. Where himself now I I don't really I saw. I could've sworn I saw video from like a year or so ago where it was like him in a car and he was like coming out to his dad or something like that and I just regardless of the subject matter. Just stop by and was like Oh. What is Fred doing those like? This was an extraordinarily uncomfortable video. But I don't know what I think it's on a different channels not Fred Lucas. Yeah now he's I think he's pretty successful youtuber now. I saw some video of him like hiring celebrities to cameos. I can't I don't understand cameo. I don't see millionaires on Cameo. Do the videos. The site doesn't make sense. It's like I look up your net worth worth twenty million dollars. And you're selling things for twenty-five Buddy Cameo for youtubers it makes sense to do like Like birthday shout outs and stuff. I understand that but it's like shack is doing cameos. Yes for what though? Well say this summer for charity there the price the price variation in cameos seems to have changed dramatically. I think when it first came out it was like twenty five cents. And you'll get John Claude van Damme to come to your home and in gesture that he's GonNa jerk you off but now there's other stuff that like like it'll be like two hundred three hundred dollars in. I could never see myself on Cameo Part of me when I'm like three hundred dollars just to wish someone happy birthday bad when you do the math do you know who I saw. this is actually Speak of the devil like two nights ago. We're on discord some of the boys and we were looking at just everybody on. Cameo and one of the most wholesome people ever cameo was badlands. Chugs you know him now. I love duties the bomb. He's just this guy that like it just drinks. The liquid really quickly. That's the thing that really impressive. It'll be like a two liter of Dr Pepper Drain. It in one. Go Charge for cameo. It's no more than fifty bucks I think. But it's it's it might be twenty five but he's just so wholesome and you can tell he's got the best smile ever and he's doing his little like like tropes from the video like remember Derek. No it's your birthday. Don't touch that mouse. And he gives away little mini jugs for people's birthdays. Like you'll have these mini bottles of Diet. Coke is like you know we do around here. We're giving away chugs. This one's for you buddy. And they just chugs a coke in this happy birthday man. I ain't so lame. Sorry you know what I'm going to say. But yeah but in every single time I've received a cameo which has been a couple of times at this point or just purchased one for fun. It has been such a delight numb so for. I think it was Christmas two christmases ago. One of our friends. Josh loves giving people cameos he sent us a cameo from Jake. The Snake Roberts. And that's cool. We Ed had told him about the Jake. The snake documentary where Diamond Dallas page goes to rescue jake. The snake because snake is. He's he's an addict and his bodies falling apart and then he says always come for. You always come free. Yeah yeah so but Josh centimeters these notes. It's just funny to see the translations. So Josh clearly sent notes Our Name Christmas you know Josh is like whatever. Fill in the blanks where he just went number one. He filmed it wrong. So you have to watch it with your heads and decide and shoe. He starts talking more about Josh. Because I assume that the person he had more information on. Because that's the person who actually book the Cameo. Let Me Josh Man. He loves these guys. You know he he cares so much about you guys get you a cameo. It was a delight this this year for my birthday because my birthday was last week and obviously couldn't do anything Adam our very own Adam Kovak and his suggests Got Me a cameo from Jason David Frank the Green Ranger. Oh and it's I mean it's great because like he clearly does a bunch of them but it they all have this like they're doing it they. They're cameo recording. Time is as they're heading out the door to more so so it's like hey man happy birthday told me. Here's your friend. I thought you'd like this Green Ranger failure rate here and then you hear dogs barking in the background. He's like Oh that's my dog. What's he up to come here boy. Three and a half minutes pay. Jacobs is on the line with his dog and God no any bread them or begum because you could see in the video he does like James. I just WanNa say you got a great physique every great about you and keep up the fitness and I heard you like power rangers piece by the Dogs Bark and gotta go. But he's he's so nice about it is is been like like. I hit all the points I was just like. Yeah we we ended up doing is like this entire video. Gather for James which I want. I haven't seen yet Obviously it's his birthday prison but it's weird like a lot of like friends or messaging me being like. I want to see this video. I WanNa see this compilation and I'm like that's really weird. Because it's like a lot of his friends from North Carolina and stuff. I I did a thing where it was just an eye talking and then I'm like oops I'm getting a phone call and those hoping that at least would push into phone kind of like a Dick. Because I was like. I'm giving her like editing work. I cut it obviously. Cut It in there. But I shouldn't push it on the phone. That would have been funny. I assume so I created a garbage man and then do some like fracking and after sex. I'd really appreciate it tough to cut the video because like obviously we live together in our places very small and so the reports were like. If I couldn't sleep during the night I was like coming out here and like secretly like it's like in the. It crowd when I don't know if he goes familiar with the. It crowd but Roy. His girlfriend tells him that her parents died in a fire at a seaworld or see park in England and he's like a fire at a C. parks like it's covered in water. How did this happen? He becomes obsessed and consumed with the idea to the point where he's like searching at night to figure out how this happened and she walks in on him and she's like what are you doing and he's like masturbating and like that's how I felt was like I can't have him catch me doing this. And there are times when his back was like turned to me. And I'm like secretly editing this video Because there was no way to do it. Yeah the only good thing for you is. I'm like a stupid Ghalem. Yes so I like your. Hey you and I could be staring asking you a question in everything. All the pertinent information is up on your screen and I go. We have more cookie. No yes me know at any. Go there in the fridge. Okay Goodbye. One of the Sky Rim guards rea- pickpocketing right in front of them. I go further back. I'm the guards. I'm John cleese outside of the Castle League Braille just like watching stare against these coming over cancer or are they change. Mind on it. I actually that sounds really sweetman. They make great gifts. Yeah I will say that but but I'm with you there it's every it's like every time. I see Samuel Jackson and capital one commercial. Mike why are you doing this? Yea I'm DB has eight hundred movies. He's making residual paychecks every is like. Do you have boats? I don't know about Morgan Freeman. And it's like what does that say about. You know I I completely forgot to I got my first and only cameo for a birthday present Last year and it was from Somebody that you guys now is from Alex who used to be work over there. Alex Ramirez. Yeah he got me one from Chris Hansen. Because we were meeting on Christmas I could just tell it's like Chris did not. I'm not knocking. It probably wasn't a fun one to be like all right. I know there's ones for God. It always feels like someone else is managing that for them and they go. Listen do you got ten of these God your cameos today and it's like I want to do case in bed I would've gone to your chaos but did you see the Escobar phone thing. The ad that he did. Yes yes there. Was this little little story backstory. There was like this company Weird Kinda Shady Company was repackaging Samsung Galaxy folds and putting a Pablo Escobar's likeness on it and selling Escobar Fund. The Got Chris Hansen to do a promotional video on but was like through cameo or something. I don't know like I. I think it was through through. Cameos the thing well I. I don't know though too because again tying into like what we had talked about with Chris Hanson last year. Like I'd like this seems like just an environment that he's not used to so I saw that and I was just like another one of like dude. Come on like I know that you're not used to like the online thing but this is fucking Pablo Escobar's brother run. The company were like you said Adam. They're just taking old Samsung folds and then just like stripping them and then just reprinting some shitty graphic over them and then selling them for a few hundred bucks cheaper. And it's Chris Hansen. Like I just heard about this new foot long always is looking at his. Webcam like this and he just see him doing this much. Wow friss-hansen here keep being predators. So I have a job all of us. Doing our ad reads in our according to our Home Office. Everything is everything is like Eddie. Who's your Dream Cameo? If you could get a cameo from anyone oh my God. It's weird because then I immediately thinking of like people. I feel like a lot of people I'd want a cameo from. I wouldn't want them to be on Kamya. How I feel like a mullany. We would be really cool but also I don't want me to be like stopping working on stuff to start doing cameos. Just hired someone on fiver. Josh John Mullany Impression Silverman. I wonder if somebody to do like all of kid. Gorgeous for like five bucks on mine. They the entire set do voice over. Pete does the whole man what what website were around we were. I think maybe those fiber we were trying to find a sound alike voice actor and I don't want to you know. Make Fun of people for their attempt at you know certain towns. Sometimes it's like this is way off when you type in like looking for a Morgan Freeman held low. I am Morgan Freeman. Yeah Morgan Freeman added that access Freeman. I've ever heard five dollars. Tim Nerik End Nathan Field Fielder always like great at which is finding impressionist. That are just. They're just a shade. Not they yeah. I was actually going to say my favorite like bad impression. Thing is when Nathan has bat like a ACE Ventura Guy Bill Gates. One is great because the full finding for instance the Guy. Doing Ventura's like he's selling it so hard. It's kind of there. But that's what makes it more humiliating as you can tell. He can keep kind of knows how to do it. But can't nail the impression right so I was really embarrassing. Speaking of the Tim and Eric thing too. I had a very very much a defining moment about a month and a half ago I was at target back when we could be out in the real world again and checking out With Sabrina and I saw this like older woman at checkout as like that person looks so familiar. Who The hell is that? I've seen this person before. And she's coming around the corner and I was in a hits me I go. Oh my God this is one of the Tim and Eric Characters. From a bunch of sketches and one of my favorite Internet videos of. Tom Of all time is their ad that they did for. Totino's pizza rolls. Remember that one at all and it was the girl that's when go nuts come to my house for it's like this older woman and I went up to her and I was like I'm like I'm really sorry to bother you. Are you an actress and right away? Within five seconds of meeting her she goes well. I don't know I act- I sing. Not and I immediately. I fucked up. This is just like somebody that's willing to sing to me in the first five seconds and I was like no I said No. Do you know like have you done any work with adult swim at all? And she goes well. I don't know but have you heard about Tim and Eric and I was like yes. You're the Totino's pizza sketch. She was so lovely and Nice. I took a photo and I was just really happy about that.

Be David Lee Lee. Part is always look at the. Hollywood bowl selling CDs from and just seems like a really nice friendly dude. I mean I feel like their process. Is they put out a casting call. And then whoever shows up and completely firebombs the edition and they're in their off camera going. Do exactly what I tell you to. Yeah and then. Vic Burger Makes editing magic happens which that's also a an awesome. Youtube channel should be watching right now in these times not to get off not to get off track. This questions you want asked mentioned Tim and Eric like I always think the amazing thing about them is that they have those people in it but it never feels like they're being exploited really like it feels like it's part of their cast of characters like we. Maybe they bring them back right. They bring them back and they put them in things and they keep giving them work and so. I always appreciated that because that could easily beat thing where there's a bunch of Hollywood weirdos and. You're just like putting the youtuber thing. Regis like Kamron Weirdo and then you let that be that thing. But it's like no no. There's something about this like what you're saying about meeting. This woman is like she has this performance nature and she's a human being and that's what's more compelling to watch. I always appreciate that Joe Exotic of T of content producers. Yeah he's a guy. Have a home come here to have some meth. Pass our though you're GONNA ask if we're having apple I think we wanted to live together and hang out and do stuff but are there and we have a group of friends that we do stuff with. But everyone's Kinda from different places like Jackie's in New York right now Danny is from my hometown to any solace and drew. Gooden is in Florida. So it's all sound like fake name. I just made them up. Right now. But Yeah I don't know it's like it's always youtube. How stuff seems weird. Because I feel like a lot of the time when I see that it's like adding the element of not only having everybody be publicly friends like that is a little bit risky but having them all be roommates is like kind of a crash and burn scenario. If you're like most of the time unless you get lucky with a really good group roommates an you know. There's the Romance Element. Yeah exactly. There's actual environment it's missile radar. Is this guy. Well we know if you guys had a house first of all guys and girls mixing it up. We know he's GonNa take the locks off all the doors about. It's going to be a lot of sweat. I run in and I'm sweating and I run out before anyone gets to see the house. Yeah the locks on the doors. I don't know what happened with. My pockets are Jangling because I'm collecting Nicholas. Why are there so many boxes of Jello a you know? What's the plan for this house? Youtubers gotta eat whatever happens up and we can eat his bass before we record. There's no time to chew the inevitable thing as the house will never get cleaned and furniture will never be bought. That's one of my favorite things that always happens. These people sitting on the floor in their own because their mothers. Aren't there so at some point. You need to just have a trash bag pile that you like. I sleep there with the U2 Pao stuff Good old team. Ten came around recently because there was a guy from Jake Paul team ten. Who apparently he ate a dog. Shit on a livestream on instagram. A couple of days ago and right that day a few hours before he commented on an old commentary video. I made two and a half years ago when I was interested in talking about Youtube stuff which I'm not really anymore. Any told me I had no friends and then five hours later. He ate dog shit on. What's going on anymore moment? First of all you do you have friends. And if you guys want to live with us in a Youtube Cameo House less because could you imagine Youtube Cameo House full? All of us he spent. Well we're all in the background of each other cameos because we're all trying to fill cameos at the same time amazing. The Green Ranger in his dog live there. Yeah get him there please. I won't badlands in the hugs on the house. Everyone gets one. I'M GONNA pick your fighter city badlands. Yeah I WANNA WANNA help curse Hanson. Get A teleprompter. Ya Not looking at his computer screen. I got that to remember when I bought that Tom. Arnold Cameo Tom Arnold did a great cameo. I would get the not too shabby guy. Who's he was discovered discovered? He appeared in an episode of Soup and He just would go places or see things he'd be like look at this lamp. I found in a thing not too shabby videos. Like seven level. Did Yeah Yeah. We got him a little bit more exposure that I would say yeah. He'd be my champion same fame winters head. I think last. I heard like wealth and fame not too shabby room. We've been goofing around a lot. But I want to get to the serious steph. Which is my you guys. Know my my usual segment. My hot takes hot-cake usual Stack IT UP. And Chuck it down. We do the I am the asshole thing you do the place that you write and then I've never heard of this one but I want to present you guys kind of a hot take and see your opinion on it. And and a lot of flack in the comments. We can be a little political. Don't mean it to be. But how do you feel about people clapping on airplanes? After emergency landings specifically emergency landing. Well I mean some people. That's a loaded question. Let's just say landings of emergency regular regular standard you endings? You mean it's like when the plane goes in and it's a little bumpy and then everyone's alive and the people clutching their hearts night and they start laughing like that so I mean I think there's a difference between like the sullies Taken it into the Hudson River you know and never safe and clapping for him. Yeah and now. There's a difference between the guy who's just you know does this. Does this route eight times a day? And it's mostly a computer to be honest with you pilots. If you're listening it's supposed to chambers. That was the lone voice booing i. I like to before the landing procedure even begins. They say were thirty minutes out from L. A. And I start. I personally can't even think of being on a plane where this has happened. I can't we've been on a plane together where it's happened clamper. Yeah I've a one hundred single or lois single. It's contagious. Actually get on the flight. They erupted applause. So is that question. They go racer Bro. Twenty-seven you're the the usual row. Ut DOWN BUYS OUT A row only by YouTube Channel Attractive Matthew. Yeah you're normally audio. I all Vietnamese usually. I'm him but today I am me. I take more issue. I think with the people that stand up right away to and I know it's such a comic trope and stuff but I fail to understand how like at this point. People are aware that it's a stupid thing to do. And that it's illogical demand like the thirtieth row and stand up the second that thing like why are you doing that? I'm okay with? I'm okay with the clap and I will say it. I in my experience most of the time that there has been clapping on planes. It's been like the kids. Do we clothe people would live with us to where it's just kind of a harmless childhood thing so I will let it pass on my front. I will not I was GONNA say Eddie you go ahead. I Don I feel like my personal issue is sometimes. I'll get annoyed of something in public and I'll stop myself and they weren't even doing something annoying. That's just me and my head getting upset about something so clapping. I feel like even after turbulence. You can clap. But if it's just like a regular landing because we're in Orlando it's like maybe don't plug but I do like that. It's like if I hear a kid trying to started. It's kind of like asking the truck driver to honk his horn. Yeah I know I was always that fuck around Where it's like. It's not even funny joke. But you'd be at an assembly or something in the always. Try to be the one to like. Get PEOPLE TO CLAP in. Just delay the whole thing would be the last one to clap in an assembly. I remember the first time that you realize that you're playing the last game and you're like I'm comedy God. I created this. I also don't like when people clap during movies a well. I think there's a whole discussion to be the plane thing. I think with Eddie on this. Where if it's an emergency landing and and they had to get they had to go like Denzel Washington get drunk flip upside down and then back again. He's also hi I'm talking about man under fire but but if it's just a regular landing no that being said. I will excuse clapping in almost any scenario where the clapping is four. Someone who can hear it clapping in any other. Scenario is a waste of energy. Yeah especially a movie. That doesn't involve anyone who made the movie it's like. Who are you applauding worked at a movie theaters for like the shirts to come in and clean up popcorn ground like who's read clapping for. I don't know I- bothers me. It's like invisible man week for a guests at this time. He's there somewhere. If you squint such a smart way of making a nine million dollar movie you make an invisible man. Got US genius. You only pay half the regular number of actors. That's true or invisible. That's the Blunt House right there like this movie costs forty five cents to make but you get thirty five percent of whatever it makes even Hawk and he goes you gotta get invisible men so that we can fill the cast but the dollar sign. I don't I mean I don't I don't want to spoil too much but I think you call it invisible woman for the next one. That sounds like a fucking spoiler at the movie phase. You five days ago and I'm not even GonNa repeat the crime but I was playing discord with people. Have you guys seen? I'M NOT GONNA say it but but we're talking about the specter or sceptre whatever the James Bond one is And I was talking with my friends and I had a friend of mine that literally said have you seen inspector and I said no. And he immediately goes okay. Well I thought it was a good movie as it hold on no spoilers he goes okay. It's not a spoiler but I thought the movie was pretty good up until the point x happens and ex was like the main story pointed it. And if I told you that the spoil it I know what he's referring to in that movie to that being said that movies like three years old. I would've allowed it but I just said hold on. Don't spoil it. Avenue goes green so anyway I spoil it and I was like. Oh there's a roommate offense. They need you guys to settle for us right now that I need to bring up the the thing is I think. Gus Agrees with me. So it's like I just WANNA mention. It is first couple of months moving moving in Gaza and Sabrina. Start Binge watching breaking bad now. We skip forward. Has everyone seen breaking bad in this? Not In the right here. Adam is wealth. Okay good so like my brother was also binging it like seven months later and I walk out of my room and I tell Gus was like Oh Tony just texted me and it confused me for a second because he texted me something like I just got an. If you're watching breaking bad mute everything I got to the point where gusts dies and I thought he meant gusts. You know our gus and I said that to him not knowing. Sabrina was in the apartment and she also they hadn't finished the show in seven months and spoil the show. I don't think that's on me even an ounce. I'm blaming you didn't agree with Azoff what happened because I said it. I didn't know who was here and I heard and then started laughing. Heard that little just like store. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa love with you. I haven't finished breaking bad. I just said Yes to fit in and now I'm really not how I wish I mean. I wish you would've known that you can tell by my cadence that I hadn't seen it right at home on the notice spoilers though I have found in my experience that even when you're talking to somebody and they say now this isn't a spoiler but eighty percent of the time it is a fucking integral. Yeah especially people think that sharing twist but not saying what the twist is is not a spoiler and it's like well that's like the biggest spoiler there is always be waiting. Yeah those those are the worst commercials with Reviewers love it. They call it the best movie of the year. They say with a twist that you won't see coming. It's like well now. I Yeah I feel like people. Just boil down to you. Don't you won't know what the content of the twist is you know what what the actual you'll know that. There's a twist but you're like a narrative psychopath like me. You start crunching numbers and then watching the movie and you're going well this John via Jane campion's also do this to to my detriment because like a movie will start and the end like James will be like like the credits or not the credits but like the production or distribution logo rolls up and he liked lights go down in the New Orleans. Order means like the dog is. The boy's father talks takes popcorn and I'm like what in the like sure enough? The dog is the boy's real father couple stories. I'll shoot them out real quick number one. The best time that ever happened was the m night. Shyamalan movie the town the village. The Village Judge I. Either I'm GonNa put this whole village in my rear view hang. You haven't seen it. I don't care about the village being spoil spoiler. I don't think you should it? Sucks but So anyway that movie was was coming out there was a trailer that showed it and I was with a group of friends and I leaned over and I go. I bet the villages. It's been present day and outside of the outside the villages regular world. They're pretending they laughing. They said don't come. Don't come hang out with us. Like most things I say they just stakes regarded it at the time. It just so happened that fast forward eight months or so later when the movie actually came out I was with the same group of friends when we went to go see it. The movie plays out spoiler. That's what it is. They're pretending that it's olden times and it's actually modern times and they're surrounded or whatever and all. Three of them went like that. They were all sitting in a row and they went like like. How did you know sorry? I'm at fault for that. Said another scenario which is on the opposite side of the spectrum.

Daily Nightgeist 11/14: Unicorn Puppy, Santa Clarita Shooting, XO19, Trump's Tax Returns, the Masked Singer

"Hello the Internet and welcome to the daily night guys. Shout out to read it or read it for a tour. Yeah movie My name is Jack. O'Brien who are you actually. I'm thinking about what a movie called alien vs auditory. I think it's I think it's actually amazing. I don't know if it's a bunch of racists. People read it being xenophobic for someone. WHO's an alien prey on that sense anyway? Yeah me miles great you guys know you know what it is high. You're listening to us. That could also be a like the New York. Post headline pro rightly exact point. It will be about an alien that sued read it for like slanders miles. What are we talking about? None of this is trending. Yeah and that's what this episodes of mine The daily night guys where we tell you what is trending today just literally at this moment at this moment. Trang give you an idea that's going on and the important stuff is trending at the end of the day. Yeah they're like okay but really what went on that matters in this world and the number one thing that we're all kind of mulling Is Unicorn puppy is Unicorn puppy real I think is everyone's first instinct instincts Unicorn. Puppy Mile Unicorn. Puppy is a ten week. Old Golden retriever named Nar Wall. Very clever name who has a literally earliest a tiny tail growing between its eyes. And it's so cute it somehow. I've never seen if you described to me a dog that had a tail growing growing out of its fucking head. I Yeah Yeah. But it's like a little free Unicorn Horn it's very very and it does seem like sort the thing that The Internet would photoshop exist as puppies win on the Internet. Gas went to but then you add something cute and freaky. Then you really get bonus. But thanks to snoop's the real the the you know the protectors of truth on the Internet. They see they say that. Yes this is this. Is the genuine article. Still hanging around snowplow. Shoutout to them it was started by a guy and then his wife and then they have a kind of a small team still and it's funny. How many people like journalists even now? Yeah A cording to snow. So shout out to y'all it's no the the last true bastion of truth because then it start off be like debunking stupid Internet. I usually check it out if I really want that free. I yeah yeah debunking stuff. Your aunt sent you re effort chain email now for people who are interested in the Jackson Mississippi Jesse Jackson Mississippi Jackson Missouri Puppy. You can't adopt this blow puppy quite it yet. BECAUSE THEY WANNA make sure that the horn is not going to have like a growth spurt at some point and then really present some kind of problem for now we're monitoring the situation. They should just find a way to breed. Make it like the X.. Men of puppies of adorable. Would you want to me dreadlock. Yeah real dread list. It's covered infer. It's not just like got bony mass. It is kind of a perfect little tail like it wouldn't be as cute if it weren't such a perfect little if you drew like how Clark Kent has that perfect curl as if there was a dog version. It just like who knows if it's a longer further there but it looks right. What else is trending miles shooting? mm-hmm unfortunately Santa Clarita at Saugus high school with Marika's still still dealing with this. Yeah it's wild because my high school used to play Saugus High School sports a lot I had some great football teams. And it's just another shows you man no matter where you live in this country yet this is an on going problem Yeah and on top of that actually massacre. Mitch has been trending on Instagram. Because he's had a few bills just you know sitting on his desk as he so probably likes to tell people people it's in his legislative graveyard and Mitch's addicted instagram. So like that's GonNa that's GonNa hard yes His Winston Winston Kinda wild though in like teen dude right WHO's really into vaping and Black Mirror? Panthers Longboard Yeah and Yeah Yeah I I'm just again. This is an ongoing issue especially with gun control in this country and you you figure this again of all the things the the themes of this next election. This'll probably be front and center to amongst all the other. Existential threats were facing as a planet and as a country. Yeah it's it's brutal Another thing that's trending that I I didn't know what it was exit nineteen. This is apparently Microsoft. Is doing their own EH. Three dropping I think a halo update her halo reach something along those go. Go off off. Gamer flight simulator. A flight simulator. And you said that I didn't actually read it there. They have flight simulator coming out in flight simulator an updated version of the old school. Dan In that I remember. I begged my parents to get command because look I WANNA look. They photo. Realistic actually does yeah. Okay see I'm not mad at that. I'm still playing roller coaster. Taken out of style. It's Carmen Sandiego on my apple to see. I'm almost I've almost collected all the stars for Mario Sixty four really good. Yeah I think Dj Danell our in house. Otoka Gamer was telling us that this is more of a trend of because e three like Sony. I didn't have a full on presentation. At e three which is unheard of because typically e three is the place where these huge gaming companies go talk about new hardware new game titles and so as Sony Oni leaving. That was kind of at that made things shaky and now you know between Microsoft Nintendo who are the two biggest console manufacturers if one of them starts doing stuff of independent of three in terms of like announcing new tech new products. That could be could be a bad sign for three. I was just there this year for my first time enjoyable. I I think the same things happening with like COMECON. You know everything. Yeah Disney's now has its own sort of con- it makes sense right. Because because the star wars has made a fourth right these things well they have their entirely own conto but like they start off as niche things with its comics. It's like well. Let's get everybody lied under one roof right. These things become gigantic industries independent. You know they're no longer niece mainstream things like. Oh Yeah we can do our fucking thing right. And that's just the way it is now baby trump is suing to keep his tax returns. Private which we've known. But but now I think he's specifically is asking the Supreme Court. Don't make me show my tax return editing. I don't have enough money. Wipe his supporters. Think he's fighting so hard to keep his tax returns quiet. I it gets the same shit right the cognitive dissonance tactic. You're you're a hater. They're haters. They just wanted to embarrass him because they don't think he's a billionaire ray. Without even looking at like noble what about like actual conflicts of interest. He might have ray and it's it's like what That's that's a term that the left uses to describe things on the right but he's also such a braggart. That's right I said it. He's Braggart. You want all the receipts out. You'd think he wants all U. This is just so out of character for him and he's going to such great heights. Yeah to keep this quiet. It's just I as a trump supporter. I think this is one of those moments where I would I would be confused. You really do all the things I think. This is the first time where I knew crack would start to appear in question. What's going on with our commandments? This guy he thirty Haydn that founded the other stuff the gross stuff. We'll chip in the veneer. I think you know we've said this in the past that it could be a thing that make people bull at least a little bit wary of him if he supported and he found like this guy's playing shell game right but as we've seen sixty two percent of his base says is Bro. He could come here right now and blow my grandma's back out in front of the whole family on Thanksgiving dinner table and I will vote for three terms they That was a question on the survey very specific. There is a recent survey saying that this is a drudge headline. Love him or hate him. Voters say hearings will not change change their views. So that's fine as long as you can get those independence to keep moving the other way right and you'll reach a threshold but again I think they're saying like there's almost no independence Lafayette. Yeah well definitely not amongst the politicians. Yes sad really. Because they're they've verbally said out loud articulated the point. I'm not GonNa Watch this stuff or hear about it because I living is all just a bunch of hater. Shit right. Yeah and finally We have glimpsed what Hell looks like. Miles You on yours this country. Yeah we just watched a clip from masked singer. Yeah on your computer. That I thought was it it is like a fever dream in Dali painting yet acid trip in a terrible. It's the vision that flashed. I through Hitler's brain ripe before the bullet hit. Wow so I mean what. We're talking about all that to say is on the mask singer. The whatever never show that is the only thing I know about the massing t pain one. I think last right The Lady Bug was revealed the other night and apparently that was Kelly Osbourne Osborne. Yeah and people were like the weird take people like more amazed that she had hidden her accent. They said since she adopted an American can southern accent searchers guests. She was Jamie Lynn Spears. Also I guess when she was talking through the mask she was doing acting would've thought but when you look at the video like a Youtube Video Call Schaal Lady Bug is repeat revealed. Is Kelly Osbourne. Go Watch this video you guys. There's fucking like triumph. The insult comic. OMIC dog fucking. Who has other guy was that the blurred lines? Dude Robin Thicke. I think Jenna Jamison but it's Jenny McCarthy. I think Jenny McCarthy look like Jenna Jameson. It's Jaime McCarthy porn Robin Thicke. I think Ken Jong Is Jong. And then I guess Nicole Scherzinger From and then triumph the insult comic dog. And it's so many smash cuts pushing pull outs camera whips. It will make you nauseous like if you have motion. So yes and it's like Eh. They're all screaming reveal and yeah and Nick Cannon. Is the one taking the helmet off. Yeah exactly helping in to reveal the reveal but then they're like having trouble getting it off She has a speed skater uniform on for some reason or like she looks like maybe like a daft punk. Thank backup dancer. Yeah but it. It truly does mirror like those vic. Burger edits like he's like showing. Just how out of this world like Jimmy. Victor edited a lot of the Tim and Eric stuff it like. It almost seems like a parody of itself and I can really only urge you so much. You know what I'm GonNa tweet it right now. Yeah see go go check it out. Yeah all right. That is what's trending right now. Among other things yeah miles where where can people hear your voice on the daily Zeitgeist elsewhere.

"You are listening to a free version of majority report with Sam, cedar to support this show and get another fifteen minutes daily program. Goodridge already dot S M, please. Jarra de. With Sam cedar. It is Wednesday. May fifteenth two thousand nine hundred. My name is Sam cedar this. The five time award winning majority report. We are broadcasting live steps from the industrially, ravage Gwanda canal in the heartland of America. Downtown Brooklyn USA. On the program today. Dennis lewinsky. On the magnificent fight. Celebrating the. Winnipeg general strike. Took place this day one hundred years ago. Also on the program today. Alabama passes a total ban on abortion. As a means to test, rove e Wade. And the US State Department evacuates all non emergency personnel. From our Iraqi embassy supposedly over fears, Iran, Ian attack. Convenient. Meanwhile. Out of the deep concern. We have for. What's going on in the Middle East? The US has all but shut the door completely, and totally. On Syrian war refugees. And federal court Trump's bid to stop the financial records. Subpoena from congress looks like it is failing. Elizabeth Warren says, no, thanks to FOX and Joe Biden says the Republican fever just needs a little bit of aspirin, and everything will be fine. Sixteen million voters were. Removed from the voter rolls in the run up to twenty sixteen Donald Trump junior will provide limited testimony to the Senate Intel committee as per a recently negotiated deal. And in Florida. You'll have multiple. Radio stations that will be playing a never ending loop of Trump speeches over the next sixteen months all that and more on today's majority report. Welcome to the show, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for joining us. We, we threatened to do it. We claim to we would do it and we're going to be doing it. We're actually not just acknowledging the Winnipeg general strike from nineteen nineteen. Specifically. Oh canada. Yes. But we're, we're gonna be talking today to the author of the magnificent fight on how that strike came about its lessons that we can apply today. Important, avid, sensitize things when opportunity strikes, no pun intended in, in the near future. Maybe maybe maybe in the distant future, who knows. Meanwhile, the twenty twenty elections are are happening. Joe Biden is up in New Hampshire and it's interesting in this office. There has been a slight. Role-reversal whereas I for an extended period time, of course, have been on my blame the voters bailiwick for several years. Now, there have others in this office, who have been on the other side of that. And now it feels a little bit like things have reversed, I've charted third way the whole time between your complete discrediting of the papal and Jamie's blind faith in them. What, what, what is your has been? It's that a both respect and disrespect the electric simultaneously in a way that synthesizes the contradictions the way that's convenient depending on the argument. I'm making at a particular town. I spell I will say that you have mastered that, that ability ability called synthesis. Your t blindly ideologically committed to your resentment said emotional agit a and Jamie's utopian visions asked me today is there a poll that's bad for Bernie the electorates looking very bad? However, I've confidence in them in the long term. I'm potentially that is what I've been saying about Joe Biden. My, my confidence in the electorate is rather limited. However, I do think, and, and look, I'm not even saying this from an ideological perspective. I mean, I feel like I have a decent understanding. Of partisan Democrats. And I just think that. Those partisan Democrats. Have a little more savvy than they used to and have a little less patience than they used to a little less desire for compromise. I, I don't know that the west wing could succeed today in today's environment, the TV show, but here is Joe Biden, saying something that I think many of you will find. In some ways incredibly stunning. Because you are all aware of what has taken place over the past three years. And you are aware of what took place in the eight years during the. Obama Biden administration and also are aware of what happened from two thousand to two thousand eight during the George W Bush administration. And so on and so on this is such a shocking thing to here. We will talk about the potential explanations for this, which range from medical conditions to deep cynicism, but here is Joe Biden. At a place, apparently that serves yogurt in New Hampshire by yogurt, sign answering a question suggesting that all you need to do is get rid of Donald Trump. And then. Magic happens. Yeah. And Republicans turn okay here tonight king. I just think there is a way in the totally changed is with Donald Trump, the White House, not a joke. You will see the fifty. Many of my Republican Trent, and it's already beginning shoes in the house. You see people that in fact, we're not willing to vote for any democratic initiative, even if they agreed with it, because they didn't want to be the odd person out of it wasn't gonna pass, no sense, and can be beaten something is not going to happen. Putting other if we can't change it, we're in trouble this nation can not function without generating consensus. Okay. So there's there's two parts to this. The first part is Joe Biden claims that the Republicans are going to have an epiphany. If Donald Trump gets out of office, if this sounds remarkably similar to the idea, let's say that they're fever will break. That makes sense because that's exactly what Obama said about the Republican fever. Breaking he said this back in two thousand twelve right before the his reelection. He argued my expectation is, if we can break this fever. We can invest in clean energy and energy inefficiency, because it's not a partisan issue. He says that if he expects the gridlock to end after the election, if he can win the election because then. That after the election. Now, it turns out that the goal of beating Obama doesn't make much sense because I'm not running again. We can start getting some cooperation. Again, now, maybe Joe Biden was asleep. During those years, or as Paul Waldman writes in the Washington Post. Maybe there's some type of blow to the head that took place. In fact, he writes, if Biden's thinks it is. He says, though, this is something all of us would like to believe is true. It just isn't in a Biden, thinks it is. We should check to see if he recently suffered some kind of blow to the head. And then he goes on to say it's possible, of course, that Biden doesn't actually think that Republicans will be joining him in a spirit of openness and compromise. He may know what the reality is. But also believe that it's worthwhile to at least pretend some other future might be possible. And while Waldman goes on to say the only problem with that is there's no evidence, there's much to be gained from being seen as reasonable in mar-. Moderate voters, don't reward you for it. It doesn't get you any closer to cheating your policy goals. So what's the point? So either we have someone who is deluded. Or just. Posing in a really, really unhelpful way. Because I actually think it's not just what's the point. There's great detriment here because if Joe Biden is setting up this basically built in excuse, for the Republicans, and why they are following Donald Trump in lockstep. How do you explain what happened in Alabama yesterday? How do you explain what Mitch McConnell has been doing for years? How do you explain the empty seat? How do you explain Mitch McConnell going on and saying? The best part of my career was looking Barack Obama in the eye and saying, you will not get that empty supreme court seat. This is. This is really stunning. And it is my contention that. The democratic primary voters this may have worked ten years ago. But I just don't I find it very, very hard to believe that this is going to work with people today. How much delusion, do you need about the Republican party? And if he does believe this. Like I say, if he doesn't believe it. He just piss poor at trying to set up a political context in which. In which he can get anything done. Right. Because I mean, if you're just saying Republicans are fundamentally reasonable, they're just under the throws the hypnosis of Donald Trump. And this is your political strategy. What happens when they say no to you as president? When you have already basically given them they promote tour of being reasonable. Well, then I guess it's reasonable to deny you any supreme court picks. I guess it's reasonable to deny you, any, you're too. Design off on your hearings, for to staff your administration. I guess it's reasonable to not allow you to have any federal court picks. I mean this is this is this is what he's doing is extremely dangerous. And that's assuming he. Thinks he knows what he's doing. He may also just believe this stuff. He may be so insulated from what's going on that he believes this stuff, which is even scarier but I will remind you. That when Barack Obama made that deal that extended the Bush tax cuts when they capitulated to the Republicans when the Republican when they did not need to do any of it. All remember, the fiscal cliff will there was no fiscal cliff, those Bush tax cuts, did not need to be negotiated because they were had a sunset provision. They were going to go away on their own. And there was one person in the government who understood that and it was Harry Reid. Which is why he was so angry when Joe Biden. Essentially slid back into the Senate and made a side deal with Mitch McConnell to say we're going to give you some of the key, you keep the, the Bush tax cuts, and we will get what we would get anyways. Joe Biden in, and you can see it in the second part of what he says, which is if we can't do this, the country is in real trouble. Well, we haven't been doing it. For years and years. There's a reason why Barack Obama the best things that he did. And the things that were so easily unwound where because they were all by executive action and the reason why they were all by executive action is because we're already there we've been there. So the question is, how do you respond to it? Do you continue to go back to the Republicans, and expect them to be moderate when they haven't been, and they have been successful in not being, so or do you make them, pay a price? And he is basically saying there's no price to be paid. I understand you were under the hypnosis of Donald Trump. I mean this is just absurd. And it is dangerous, and it is particularly dangerous at a time now where that judiciary, all of that scheming by Mitch McConnell has paid off. And Joe Biden is, is basically saying you're going to get a free pass a free political pass. And you and what's going to happen is, if he becomes president, they're going to take that pass, and they're gonna slam him over the head with it. He's gonna find out. It's a club. Really stupid. And frankly, I think democratic voters are just going to be like, what Republican party are you talking about this is something that makes Joe Biden, look incredibly out of touch delusional? I hope that you're right. I mean, it is a nice bedtime story. Right. Like Trump is the night, king. And as soon as you kill him his army of ghouls is just gonna fall on the ground and play dead. Exactly. We'll see. I mean we'll see if people are dumb enough to buy it. I feel like I have to defend myself I second though, I did not say that I do blame the electorate I said, if I were the type of person to play the electorate and like you're learning. Like, yes, I would say that, if you vote for Joe Biden, and the twenty twenty primary, you deserve president Andrew dice clay in twenty twenty four. There you go. I like the use of the word. If yes, everything is hypothetical. This is not hypothetical. Just coffee dot co op offers you ten percent off with the coupon code majority. They are a fair trade. Now that not only do they. They give a fair rate to their farms. They don't abandon their farms, I had a chance to go out to Wisconsin, a couple of months ago, I spoke to the folks there when their farms have problems, they stand by them other roasters whatnot. They will abandon the farm because they know they can go to the next one and get the coffee that they need these guys stay with these forms. I mean, even if they're coffee did not taste, great, even if they didn't have multiple types of roasts in types of coffee, even if they didn't offer a majority report brought blend lazing gentleman. This would be the place to buy your coffee. But all of what I just said, was true. So just coffee dot co op fair trade coffee, tea or chocolate. Get ten percent off your order. It's always free shipping and also, don't forget, you can support this program by becoming a member. Go to join the majority report dot com. And we're gonna take quick break. We come back, we will be talking about the magnificent fight the nine thousand nine hundred nineteen Winnipeg general strike would Dennis Lewinsky. When I was a young boy. Momma said to me. Two. School. Back in this. We, we are back Sam cedar on the majority report on the phone. Dennis Lewinsky, who has been involved in managing facilitating social Justice and development for almost forty five years, works with community groups government agencies to address issues of poverty, homelessness and discrimination. And author of magnificent fight the Winnipeg general strike. Dennis welcome to the program. To hear from him. So all right. So we are today's the one hundred anniversaries. Correct. Absolutely may fifteenth nineteen nineteen all the action started. All right. Well, I mean, let's start just briefly and I want to circle back to this and and, and tease it out more. But briefly, why, why is it important for us to remember this strike? You know, I'm not a historian, I'm journalist by training and activists by inclination. But I think that what history gives us. It's, it's a it's a prism through which we can see ourselves today, and nineteen nineteen strike was a struggle for social Justice for human rights. So by looking back at it. I think we can see some of the dynamics in our own society are on time and how we're relating to them. So I think it's useful to of course, it's not a blueprint. We don't get up blueprint from history. But it helps us understand. And especially when we're doing anything that requires collective thinking, you know, it helps a group, for example, I do a lot of work with young people high school students, and it doesn't take them long to draw links between the past and the present. And then the discussions about the present. And I think that's where street and especially the strike in our case is a really dynamic. It's a great resorts. All right. Let's talk a little bit about just so the folks get a sense of, of Winnipeg. It is a city. Now I say, probably about the size of like a Seattle. A million population. Okay. So. All right. So tell us a little bit about what Winnipeg was like a hundred years ago. Where at one point was third biggest city in Canada. And actually, it was called the Chicago north because of the amount of green that was traded through the green exchange. So in between nineteen hundred and nineteen twenty it was a booming place. I mean, the population grew from forty thousand in nineteen hundred almost a hundred and eighty thousand twenty years later, and it was a real agriculture and industrial center three railroads converged here. There were thirteen banks, the grain exchange the industry metalworking industries, huge yield production of for the for the construction of big buildings and one time there were thirteen what we call or what people call stripers at the time. And one of them that was built in nineteen six. The considered the tallest building in the British empire. So these are just indicators of Konami that was really really growing fast and, and really involving a lot of new people. So a lot of those thousands of growth, they were immigrants. There were people coming from Britain, the United Kingdom and eastern Europe to work in the industries, or to working agriculture's. So there was a huge influx of immigrants that really was changing not only economic and labor relations situation, but was really affecting the, the cultural character of the of the time. So it was really a dynamic time for most. It was an exciting time for some. It was bringing about change. That was a threat. So it was it was it was good for in many ways. But it also created stresses and streams. On the society at the time. Okay. Until you mentioned that. It was renowned for having a, a skyscraper and the strikes. Started at least in part with some of those construction workers. Tell us what, what, what led up to the strike. Well, there were two real key groups at the time that were negotiating for better wages and working reduced working hours that was people working in the construction trades, electricians, carpenters kind of skilled tradesmen and then on the other side, there were the metal trades workers. Tinsmith Boilermakers, these two groups negotiating with their employers at the time and mainly it was around wages. But if your member at that time, did was eight to ten hour days and six day weeks, it was nothing like we have today, so they were always trying to negotiate better working conditions and benefits for workers. The. Employers were very resistant to that. And at that time, remember that the unions were not formally or legally recognized so there was a very informal relationship between the unions and the employers. So on one hand, for example, the construction trades, the contractors, the big construction companies that were building buildings they knew that they had to pay more. They agreed that workers were not getting paid much. There was a time when during the first World War, when wages were ineffective pros, and as part of the national response to the war effort. So the employers in some cases knew there had to be improved and sending crease wages. But there were disagreements over how much and and went to apply these changes. So it was a like a dynamic time, lots of construction, lots of work being done, but it was a situation where the. Workers were expecting more out of their labor time. All right. And so, so give us a sense of. I mean I it's entry. So the dynamic from almost generic sense is a situation where the workers are aware of just how much. Those owning these companies and presumably, the growth of who are benefiting the capital is, who are benefiting from the, the growth of the city and this is building. Resentment, walk us through how, you know, who went on strike first, how this thing spread, but I'm also curious at this point because in the states at this time, particularly nineteen nineteen in many respects, and certainly in nineteen twenty there's a lot of rather famous like a mate, one was in the states. I think it was maybe nineteen twenty there were, there was a lot of striking that was going around, particularly through the nineteen teens, the earliest the earlier part. So how much how much were the unions in Canada? What was their relation? Ship with the unions, where I should say, you know, the, the workers in the states. Good. I'm glad you brought that out because prior to the strike. There was a lot of labor action in these states. And in Europe this was a global phenomenon where unions were organizing in the night in the eighteen eighties. Eighteen ninety a lot of the workers were organizing into unions, both in Canada and the United States. So they were really developing and testing the, their union muscle at the time. And there was resistance, obviously from employers. They wanted to control wages and control workers. So it was a time when there were of strikes, even in Europe. Bring back to like nineteen six and seven Belgium's Spain, there were major major stripes. The, the Russians you know, before they took power in nineteen seventeen. They were using general strikes as a way of putting pressure on the. Government at the time. So it was a, you know, a pretty universal nominated in fact, I'm glad you mentioned, you know, Seattle in January of nineteen nineteen Ida huge strike sixty five thousand workers went off for a week and it in many ways, was the template for what happened here in Winnipeg. So you to respond to your question about how it all about launched here, the, the metal trades, and the construction trades workers were negotiating in March, and April not getting very far. So both of those went on strike on may first and may second of nineteen nineteen that really was the catalyst. There was a strike. They were pushing for wages and reduced ours. They went on strike that they had got the Winnipeg trades, and labor council, which represented other unions in the city, then call for a vote on whether or not they would support those. Those workers on, on strike, while the response was overwhelming eleven thousand or around eight thousand members voted to go in a general strike only about six hundred voted not to go in a general strike. So right from the beginning, you can see there was a lot of union solidarity and, and, and common interest, of course, at the time that Dan, brought out roughly another twelve thousand workers or eighteen thousand workers, and I said earlier population of about one hundred eighty thousand you had ten ten percent of the population on strike on may. The fifteenth nineteen nineteen one hundred years ago today. The other interesting factor phenomenon was that within a few days and other twelve thousand workers, who were not unionized went on strike. They were immigrants largely working in small businesses. Some of the. Domestic servants. For example, in, in the homes of the cities, rich, and they basically walked off their jobs as well. So that's surprised everyone. But what it meant was that there was now thirty thousand workers on strike, and it city of one hundred eighty thousand and just to add to another dimension. So we're talking numbers, the veterans who are coming back to Canada, from the first of all war aid saw a lot of them saw common cause with the strikers, they wanted jobs. They wanted to be treated fairly. They had just sacrificed a lot in the name of democracy, and they weren't he wanted to enjoy the fruits of that democracy. So put another four or five thousand trims got involved. So within a few days after may fifteen was almost thirty five thousand workers on strike, and they carry through that, that in labor act. Action six weeks. And so I mean you're talking about almost twenty percent of the population, and I would imagine much higher figure relative to the working age population. Right. Because we're we're not, you know, I mean, and, and so that has devastating effects. I'm curious about this dynamic before we get to, you know how this ends. What happens over those six weeks? But the, the idea that you'd have twelve thousand nonunion workers. Join the, the union strikes, the idea that you had four four to five thousand veterans who are obviously, you know, sort of I would imagine they still have particularly close bonds, particularly at that time, having just come back from the war. So there's a tremendous amount of solidarity amongst the veterans. Air is in this country now. And I imagine there's some maybe analog in Canada, although I to be honest with you. I don't know a movement amongst unions that are trying to turn away from the managerial unionism that has dominated the union movement. Over the past, I don't know four five six six decades and move towards a more of a social Justice unionism, which, you know, as in broad swats basically means that you as a union, you don't just fight for your own wages, and your Joe, you fight for issues. You create solidarity across society by picking up and, and fighting for the issues that are shared by folks in. In the working class and shared by folks across, you know, some amount of classes, the non capitalist class was, let's put it that way. And so, how much of like what was what was the consciousness of, of, of how the approach was taking at that time? I mean, if I if the unions, were able to mobilize twelve thousand non union workers, which is, you know. More. I mean, almost almost the same amount of unionized workers, maybe a little bit less. But I in total with veterans they were able to mobilize. You know, a significant amount of the population. How what was that a function just of everyone having a shared resentment or was there a plan to build cross in union solidarity? Or was it because they were immigrants or what was that. Well, the there were a number of things said, however, one of the key elements to kinda glued together that class solidarity was alot these immigrants came from situations in Europe where they had felt oppression. You know, they reliving under Coney in regimes futile regime. So they came to Canada, with a couple of expectations one, they were coming to Canada to build a new country to build a new nation and it wasn't just their labor. It was their, their tenacity their courage. They're resilient that they knew they were bringing to Canada. Secondly, a lot of these organizations were very, very independent of these people were very, very independent. So they built their synagogues. They built their labor temples. They built their church. They set up their community organizations. They started benevolent society's. You know, they were they were not waiting for government. I mean there was no expectation that government would provide these these services. And so there was an ethic right from the beginning of people helping themselves helping each other, and we can tell many stories of, you know, different ethnic groups that may have been fighting in Europe, but the came to Canada and started working together, there was a collaboration around issues. So I think that was a kind of a seminal part of the changes that were taking place, a lot of social services prior to the nineteen twenties were provided by church groups or. By benevolent groups, many of the middle class and there was a sense of, in, you know, that it was important to help one's neighbor who to help the destitute. Remember the real lot of widows created from the first World War, and they rarely had a good alternative income. So there were these women and children that needed support and because we're kind of a smaller country than the states and cities for smaller time. They're, you know, people do could seem the conditions that people were living in and there was not effort to respond. So one of the things that maybe a little different between candidate states is that we had a bit of that social unionism right from the early nineteen hundreds and so we pushed through, and whether directly initiated by the unions or initiated, by the progressive political parties with the support of the unions. But we've got a lot. Of the, you know, socialized medicine. Improved educational services unemployment insurance, and things like that, and that we've had for decades here. So it's a little different, but I I'm really glad you mentioned this in terms of the, the unions responding to economic and cultural conditions today, and especially a lot of young people want to get involved in organizing around environmental issues and social issues, you know, confronting racism and things like that. And the unions are responding day are getting on board and, and seeing that there is that sense of both obligation and benefit when we all work together around these issues. So the strike ends six weeks later, more or less at least officially, I guess, on what is known as bloody Saturday. What, what happened on that day, I was, you know, it was a constructed sponsoring the state, the locally had been. Planning into trying to figure out ways of fronting the unions. They were were ready for a fight. You know, they had special police hired ready to, to intervene. Had military ready? So that when the veterans land a silent March silent demonstration on June. The twenty first and it started out, very, very peacefully eight thousand people hunger gated in front of city hall in downtown Winnipeg. But the thirties were not up for tolerating any of that they, they charged in with horses and clubs. And at one point, they pulled out the revolvers and kills the couple of men to men. So it it was a brutal suppression of the, of the of the workers, and of veterans, and it was like, say they were very clear that it had to be a peaceful violent protests. And they were protesting the arrest ten minutes that had been arrested, just a few days earlier and the raid that took place on three, the labor temples, again, the state had no authority to make these raids and arrests, but they did and the public was incensed. And so there were demonstrations, all across Canada, and the one plan here in Winnipeg on June twenty I was the Tacoma Nate and really express the, the, the public's criticism of the of the government and what they had done with these men and with the labor temples. And so what happened in the wake of bloody Saturday? Well, you know, the workers, I'm sure you know not being there but you know from the records, we have to workers were obviously disillusioned by that because it seemed that straight had become very violent throughout the six weeks. The unions were constantly saying the best thing for the workers to do during the strike to win was to do nothing not confront not challenge. Not demonstrate so when this happened, it demoralized everyone, and the central strike committee and called and into the strike for June twenty fifth. Now, you know, way the interesting echo or wave that came out of that in the next two years, a number of very progressive labor oriented politicians, where elected to office in the city government, the provincial government, and the federal government, and just to give you a snapshot three of the so-called strike. Leaders. That were charged with and convicted of seditious conspiracy, they were in Vail in nineteen twenty where they ran for the provincial legislature. And they were elected overwhelmingly elected, even though they were never allowed out of jail. So, you know, the, the, the, the aftermath really was a vote of the people on the strike, and they voted their support or the strike the strive the strike leaders. And so following that, like, what were the I guess the, you know, then the echoes in the ripples of that's right? I mean do we see any type of reforms, I'm curious if there was ever any? Analogous? Legislation. And, you know, I'm jumping ahead, of course. Taft Hartley happened in this country the in the forties late forties. And that. Ultimately, I think, as really undercut the power of unions and, you know, I think people are working on trying to figure out ways in which to, to rebuild that union power, but it the worst thing about Taft Hartley in terms of powers. It really prevented general strikes and of this was your anything equivalent to that in Canada into the extent that there was or wasn't was there, also any other sort of ripple effects of this strike. Well, couple of things, first of all right after the strike in the nineteen twenties. It was a period for the economy where there wasn't the same kind of growth that preceded the nineteen twenties. So that was the first thing then by nineteen twenty nine thirty. Then there was the depression that put a cap on a lot of economic development, the change, so things that had kinda national dimensions to them that had nothing to do with the strike where we're really dominant at the time. However, the unions there it was a setback for the unions because workers were disappointed in the failure of the strike. And so there was a time when the unions had to build Dr credibility, and, and their their their strength. But the -nificant thing, one of the significant things that came out of the strike. Was that the living conditions that the workers had experienced and we're? Experiencing was really exposed and in Canada. We have something called Royal commissions. That's when the government is gets high-powered credible. People who do an investigation to do in Alice's of an important issue. And so in Canada, there was a federal Royal commission and then a provincial Royal commission to look into what were the underlying causes of the labor unrest, and Winnipeg strike. And both of these clearly pointed out that it was. You know, the workers were frustrated. They were unemployed facing poor working conditions wages were low at the same time, there was a wealthy class that was benefiting from the from the, the labor of the workers. You know, so these commissions and these are very, very elite. Government Oreo wanted commissions both of them were run by judge judges. Both of them came out. And basically endorsed, what the strikers were fighting for so that didn't lead to social service development, for example, but it did put in place, and it did show the importance of government and non governmental agencies working to provide the kind of support that workers needed that you can't just expect workers to be Braves. They do have their, their personal lives. And, and by the nineteen forties and fifties. You saw awareness that the win workers are well closed. Well, fed educated, it benefits the economy, benefits industry and business. So, you know, it took time but the strike and the commissions that came out of that. So clearly articulated, the, the living conditions, and the exploitation of workers that it did register for the future. I wouldn't say. There are direct relation on love to say that something that was done enduring strike, you know, led to certain legislation, but very few links, okay? Give you one example, one of the strike leaders, I named Jay what's worth became quite famous. And he really, really pushed the Canadian government institute a pension plan for Canadians, which we now have, and it's a fairly healthy plan, a lot of Canadians rely on it. Well, you know, he was a strike leader. He was in parliament in the nineteen twenties and thirties. And it took him a long time and, and other recipe Titians, but they were able to get something very significant nut. Not only benefited units, bud benefited everyone in the country, all AllState of. So it wasn't direct relationships to what happened after but you can see that there was that it that the strike was a catalyst in a way that allowed progressive politicians than move. Forward and push for more progressive agenda that I think is huge, huge lesson for folks to take from this story, and I have to say, also, I'd be remiss if I didn't say the, the idea of those elite commissions, resolving that the strikers were right. That sounds about the most Canadian thing I could ever imagine. Dennis Lewinsky, the book is magnificent fight the nineteen nineteen Winnipeg general strike. Thank you so much for your time today. I really appreciate it. It's been a pleasure to meet you. All right, folks, we're gonna take a quick break head into the fun, half of the program wherein. We will have fun lays Jomon. We will have fun in a myriad of different ways. One of those ways will be to make fun of Dave Rubin again. He had on my old, buddy. Mike Sern of it, Sean, boy, you remember Mike Cerna Vic, they're just exchanging ideas. You remember. Mike Serna vici is the guy who is a documented date. Rape denier. He was also documented. A promoter of pizza gate, which ultimately led to a man going into a pizza parlor in Washington DC with a weapon looking for hidden dungeons where there were pedophile prostitution rings. Don't forget, he's an alleged rapist, but he played it down to battery. So that's true. That is also true. There's, there's more, of course, he also was famous for stepping on a rake and getting hit in the face. Or rather I should say, more specifically trying to get me fired and not getting me fired. We're getting me fired, and then, and then having that not work out for him. He accused Brock Obama Vall sorts of, of things obviously. And he also failed miserably on his on air screen test on info wars, which was difficult for him. Also a professional. What do they call them? Pick up artists wasn't he basically was telling people to how to nag nag women. And basically, you know that's the way you pick up the ladies I guess, but so Dave Rubin had him on for a second time. And I think look, Dave Rubin can have on whoever he wants economically. Not have on whomever, he wants. But it seems to me there should be some accounting for platforming a guy like. That. And they talked about some of the stuff, of course, the massive amounts of pedophile rings that, that he is convinced happened. But as far as I know Dave did not bring up the widely publicized, attempt to get me fired. They did complain however about how hard it is. And how online culture is so despicable. In fact, we have that clip. Let's let's play that now. There was a. Here is. Is this clip number five? Right. Is that it or is that the best one, I think so? Oh, yeah. Okay. So let's play a compilation from the actual filmmaker Vic burger, as opposed to the fake filmmaker. That is Mike Cerna Vic and here he is doing his rendition of, of the talk between Dave Rubin and Mike Cerna Vic wherein Mike Serna. Sir, really is upset I will remind you that Mike Sernovosk claims to have paid someone to dig through my tweets. They found a tweet from two thousand nine where I sincerely chastise those people who were being apologised for Roman Polanski as a rapist, wherein. I wrote in response to a petition that was going around in Hollywood trying to get Roman Polanski get him some type of lifetime achievement award or something to that effect. Wherein. I wrote regarding Polanski don't care about him. But if my daughter is ever raped. I hope it's by a much older man with a great sense of Meson sin. And. The satire there, obviously, was that I it is absurd that you would let someone off for, for the rape of an underage girl because they're a great filmmaker that seems absurd. Well, of course, Mike Cerna Vic hired someone to dig through my tweets. That's all they could find. They tried to weaponize, that with the use of boughts, they had Donald Trump junior retweeted, they had said Gorka, re tweet it. Mike, sir, and his folks pretended to be outraged citizens members of a, a pedophile victims group and emailed, all of our advertisers, in an attempt to get them to, to end their association with this program, and ultimately got me fired from MSNBC. And then ultimately, I was rehired that did not come up. In this conversation. But what did come up as how hard being public figure is for Mike Sern of it as told through this Vic burger video, did, you know? Did you know? All right. I think we're live. We're alive. We're alive. Mike, sir. How you doing? Man. I think about everyday high ruined my life by ever becoming a public figure. I just. I just want my books live a good life. Nobody knew who I was before Trump ran, I was in a Parisian cafe. Just writing having fun with my wife walking around looking in Archer Dom before burned down and everything. And every day, I think I ruined my life by coming public figure because just the fundamental indecency of it all is not something that I was prepared for kit. But. The angry little weird left people or the freaks weird, Mike. And the, the people who support my family being harassed. They'll do all the dunking on Twitter, it does make you in a way, which is sad and the problem if they can people like me sad is sometimes I hope my daughter, and I think about the people who are trying to hurt her. I remember we went to some party. My Buddy's, girlfriend said the discount rate and we go let's go kill him. You all know what Vick bird or did you know, we had fake videos about my life. In fact, you know that he's edited multiple videos are fat. Kare back. Sorry might my child's trying to be in this. This isn't really friendly. She's all real, so just ask them. What did they mean by that? And you know, the emails, he sent me the threats that have gone to police play supports. So this is some clown. Watch. He calls me. All right. This is my message he made fake videos about my wife. This could be an actual pedophile ring. So I have to just make it public and publicize it they're all connected. This guy his Twitter handle is. V. I. C. B. E. R. G. E R, the fourth fleas vet, call the cops again. They're all connected this one guy. He's the middle of all Vic burger fuck you Sumi, you know. Like I just don't give a fuck that note. I hope we cleaned up some of this, the chips fall where they may, and we'll both keep going, I suppose and my pleasure. Yeah, good talking to you. Yes. There it is folks. And apparently, Dave Rubin now wants to hope host democratic presidential candidate Pete put again. And boy, it seems to me that would be a huge mistake for that democratic primary hopeful to appear in that same very seat where. And as but if he wants to be seen in the same light as, as someone like Mike Cerna Mitch, I'm in. I'm not, you know, I have no bone to pick with mayor Pete. He's not necessarily my favorite candidate. I have plenty. But if that's what he wants to do. Then I say more power to you. I hope that, that brings you dividends. I just have a feeling it won't bring you the dividends you think it will. If you are a fan of mayor Pete's I would suggest to him, probably not a good idea. But. You know, like I say to each their own and again, I want to remind you Mike answer the question the eternal question of Mike Cernavoda, who's laughing? Now sam. It's me. I'm laughing now. All right. We're gonna take quick break head into the fun half. Just a reminder, you can become a member of this program. In fact, you can still become a member of the Mike Cernavoda can kiss my ass tear a membership tier on majority, head to join the majority report dot com. Just pennies a day, you can support this program. You get extra content. You get a commercial free. Join the majority report dot com today is Wednesday may fifteenth. That means that yesterday was Tuesday may fourteenth. What happened last night in this office? Michael the we had a mini elicit history of the Iranian revolution. And how that government works. I'm Viglen joins us. We talked about everything from the Knicks in the NBA draft which means quite a lot to Emma. I did not know Nixon, right? I knew she was. But I didn't like it's not just the fandom. It's like I think Bosch, grow soon Karas, the only other like Nick's dedicated head that I've, I've ever met like like Woz doesn't care about that. But so we talked about that. We talked about.

Quarantine USA! (Pt. 21)

"Who AND WELCOME TO MANDELA. Is Confused This Matt? Julia and this is quarantine episode. Fuck in Twenty. Something that means this has gone on too long I'm actually going to start having guests again. Pretty soon. Just finished setting up my at home studio for video so there will be video component to this podcast in the very near future. We should have it up and running by a Sunday service if not week from today But yeah within a week you will be able to see me not only hear me. And the set is fucking Rod. It rules It's in my office which Kinda of over the years has turned into more of a storage unit Not that I made that decision but it was one of those things I I people in my life. Many of them have called me. A hoarder. I've slapped them all so that's not a good idea to do to me. No but really I it. I have had an interesting journey in regards to My opinion about whether or not I'm a hoarder because so many people have told me that I have hoarding tendencies. I mean I've seen the show hoarders and I'm fucking not like that all right so that's number one that's fucking first of all second of all When I was I was the first person that kind of told me that Because as a kid you can't be a hoarder you really have to blossom into a hoarder as an adult when you actually have shit of your own And I I I would deny and really push hard against it but I think really I think I might actually be a hoarder because I every time every time I consider throwing something away that I don't that I don't that it probably won't need ever again or don't want right now and have no need for for the foreseeable future. I just think well I might need it. And that accumulates into like you suddenly have like you know A lanyard from fucking music festival you went to in two thousand six and you're like I don't know It's kind of like a memory I might wanNA. I might want to keep that that times. Like a thousand and suddenly. You're fucking horror hoarding. Sneaks up on you. You don't one day. You're not just like you know what I want. I want too much shit. It's just one by one so I was clearing out my fucking office and I had to part ways with some real deal shit and it was hard. It was hard but I did it. I did it all for you so I would appreciate some thanks To Fox go on the news to today. I saw twitter actually for the first time. They've been doing this thing. They have this policy now. Were If something is false or some sort of like leans into misinformation potential misinformation from like Highly followed source. You know they don't give a fuck like what Joe Joe fucking cried and six six six says you know with his eight followers but You know public figures people who are the people who Are generally listened to are now sort of held to a standard by twitter. It's not it's not just They're not just as hands off as they used to. Because they get fucking hammered so hard for not really tending to all the bullshit on the APP of which there is so much it is accessible. It is how But they finally started to label certain things as misinformation. I think either yesterday or the day before they labeled to tweets of Donald Trump's as potentially misleading. I think is what they called them on what I was everybody's talking about. Wow they finally did it. They finally did it. They finally started to you know call out misinformation. They see it for me. It's like why did you just do to what? Why even if you look at his fucking feed there are so many lies or just wrong shit even if you wanna give the president The benefit of the doubt say. He's not lying. He is but if you were to say he's not he is but if you were to insist that he's not you would have to admit that he's wrong otherwise you're also liar. See how that works but yeah it was the tweets one of the. I think they were both about this but I know one of the tweets was about voter fraud. Which it's fucking wild man. The the shit this guy hit more than anyone ever more than like an annoying little kid who gets laugh and just keeps going back to the well just keeps going for that same fucking joke my brother when he was really young and I was obviously even younger He calls himself the youngest man alive. But I'm actually younger so that's technically me This is when we we're still in New Jersey. I mean I was like three. You know and he was six and he would sing this song that for some reason my parents all of their friends thought was funny and it's unbelievably funny but because they thought it was funny at least the first few times. Chris just did it a Jillian fucking times and it was the this was. This was all the sunless. I'm lucky. I'm lucky dog. I'm lucky I'm lucky. I'm lucky dog. I'm a lucky dog. Was it not funny at all? But people laugh at it because probably he was being cute And so he would go back to that well so fucking much to the point that I wanted to kill anyway like child who discovers that something that he or she thought of is going to make people laugh and bring that jolt a happiness and pleasure no adult goes back to the same well more than Donald Trump. The Dude I everybody that seen citizen Kane out there which hopefully has everybody. If you haven't oh what the fuck but the end you know on ruin it for you. Fuck you if you haven't seen it. That's what you get Kane has the globe in his hand and he's dying and he says Rosebud fucking trump's gonna be dying and just be like the mouse ellery Democrats practice voter fraud. The Dude says the same shit over and over again. It's fucking incredible. It doesn't I mean I was GonNa say it doesn't matter if it's true but that's obvious he still always talking about this on Sunday. He still fucking going on about the Joe. Scarborough thing the murder investigation that is that is even crazier than I thought it was. I've looked into it more since Sunday. It's so fucking stupid. The Guy can say anything and his dip. Shit fucking lemming follower Wannabe fucks. Please Sir have more of a tweet tweet fucking losers and they all just fucking pick it up and spread it out trying to fan the flames trying to get his attention. Please please Dr have a fucking Joe. Scarborough thing is so stupid an aide of has died from some shit some either heart condition heart attack something just random sudden the like what happens in life a lot and you know trump considers scarborough an enemy. And he's just trying to rile people up in. It's obviously working because of all the please fucking idiots speaking of twitter this thing they wouldn't do but act that woman's fucking husband the woman who died the woman that trump accusing the Joe Scarborough of murdering. I mean we wonder why there's so many fucking idiotic Cunanan tight believers firkin president anyway. The husband asked twitter. Begged pleaded with twitter to take the tweets down about his wife. Cut A poor fucking guy. Obviously they wouldn't do that but yeah they were willing to label two of his tweets as misinformation fucking to. Hey Jack Dorsey that doesn't count as it's you don't get to just throw a bone and be like okay so we did it. Everybody chill we labeled two of these things is potentially misleading. There about fucking voter fraud. Which who gives a fuck there is not ever anywhere and fucking going back to the well. Voter fraud doesn't shut up about fucking. Hillary doesn't shut up about emails. The do doesn't shut up about a Bama fucking saw actually just saw this right before I started. He tweeted about actually not fucking read it. It's that stupid okay. So He's been getting trump has been getting flack for Golfing over Memorial Day weekend and not wearing a mask and not distancing in not just overall not giving a fuck being a heartless fuck harvest. The guy never names any of the debt. He doesn't honor any of them speaking throwing people a bone. Hey pretend you have a heart. Pretend you have empathy like every other president ever in times like this fucking matters. That's what George Bush. Got The fucking bump after nine eleven even his people who hated them such as myself like well. He's doing the fucking best. He can look at this fucking guy just always fucking bitch ass fighting mode like a fucking baby anyway. Here's the tweet defending himself. Oh what a surprise defending himself the most defensive human in the world who else defensive five year olds and this is the tweet didn't Obama whose administration has now been caught cold illegally spying on the trump campaign recently also get caught playing golf on a course in Virginia despite his wife Michelle urging people to stay home before and after his round in a major public service message. He's not president. Your President Barack Obama is a guy now just a person. You're the president. Nobody gives a fuck when or why or how Obama is golfing. Why he's not president so yes he did not no. He did not get caught playing golf. He was just playing golf such baby. It wasn't only me other people golf too. Well there's only one president we could he be missing the point more and couldn't matter less this fucking thing has three hundred thirty five point eight thousand retweets and one hundred twenty thousand likes. So that's depressing. That's cool please. Another route twenty fucking speaking of voter fraud I saw. I actually don't remember the account. Let me fuck and find it. It was on instagram. This this account. Oh yeah the good liars. I saw posted this. It's them there's two guys they're the host Jason Silva and Fucking some other. I guess anyway They're talking to people at a trump rally at a trump protest and I'm gonNA play is about voter fraud which trump has shut the fuck up about about how the Democrats do it nonstop so here. We go broad surreal. Just voter frauds. A real problem in the country. Now I have you seen any voter fraud. Yeah me I did it. You you committed voter fraud. Would you do twice prompts really four years ago yes you get in trouble for that victim for really voted for Henry. I gotTA GO WITH METAL. And you voted for trump slice. Yeah so hard way but. Did you wear a mustache or anything? Walk from different time. I've made a couple of crumbled another place. I don't know I'm having like a big crisis because I honestly thought it was like lives that were doing so a. You can't really commit voter fraud because this fucking idiot who separated her votes by weeks. Still got caught for it and be. That wasn't a fucking liberal person. That person was a trump voter and tried to vote for trump twice voter fraud. If it is even a thing is the tiniest fucking thing. And here's the fucking thing. That is the most aggravating about the whole twitter correcting or labeling it as potentially misleading. He takes twitter's stance on truth. Which is tenuous at best really. I mean that's not a very good. They're not like a model of truth bearing but in this case they did. Let's at least for a second here. Give them credit for calling to things that are lies lies but then what trump immediately does is he said Twitter's trying to swing the election. they're trying to get a biden elected And they're just trying to smear me even twitter the big social media companies. They hate me. No one says other people hate him more than Donald trump another thing that children and babies do still every once in a while. Just like bucking. He's President Oh walked Sir but he is and I completed and that is why. I'm voting for whoever the other guy is and the other guy is Joe Biden. Who after that monster fuck up about? If you don't vote for me then you ain't black which is so dumb to say but like I said whenever the fuck it was last week that eight shit I mean if you think that's a fuck up. Just wait for the next few months. The Shit. That's GONNA come out of these guys mouths demented GRANDPA and five year old beavis. It's going to be straight up. Unbelievable the debates between an are going to be so fucking. Surreal you you. You'd be hard pressed to find two people certainly to politicians that make less sense when they talk though. I do feel like Biden's fucking kind of starting to get the hang of something. Maybe I saw a tweet. From his account it was just the whole tweet was wear a mask period which I thought was fucking sick amid all this fucking politicization of it see the thing about that is way way better for him to just re tweet that than it is to tweet information about why. It's better to wear a mask for some reason. It's the kind of thing that works better against someone like trump the more you get into the fine grain details about arguments to counter him doesn't it? It's like it doesn't matter. He's such a fucking Tasmanian devil that nothing sticks so blunt force me way back in the beginning of all this actually talking to Joe Walsh very first guest on the podcast Former tea party. Republican Congressman He actually tried to primary trump. This year for the Republican nomination obviously didn't work but we were talking about. Who we think is who has the best chance to trunk and at the time this is before the first debate before everyone knew just how much of a demented GRANDPA Joe Biden was. I said I thought it could be Joe. It might be Joe Biden because I see him or saw him as the one person that was that had their hat in the ring. That could go toe to toe with trump on that like blustery brute force thing and make dumb people be like Susan's flavor to you know But then obviously after the first debate that totally went away because the after debate I was like who is that guy. And where did his brain go because it ain't in his head he's obviously kind of found his stride the debate against just Bernie. He was Lucid. And it was actually weird. How lucid he seemed one on one. I guess is better for him. Obviously but I think now I mean obviously disregarding the fucking then you ain't black comment I think tone wise. He's kind of found found his footing. More where a mask period. That is how you win. Don't post information don't post links to CDC shit just say wear a mask while the Tasmanians up arms going fucking crazy getting red in the face and orange and the head just blunt force where mask see it do that more. You'RE GONNA win. Thank you also. I know how Joe Biden can win. All used to do during a during a debate at she needs to be able to pinpoint the moment. Where trump is freaking out the most getting the most irate and beside himself and and red in the face and orange in the head and he needs a wait for his turn calmly smiling which obviously is good that and then just wait a second or two time it right into needs to be like a beat after trump is done. Just let them all run air. You know let them go like the Muhammad Ali thing just like let them run out of fucking steam and then when he's finally fucking done just say when I'm president you're going to jail and that's it that's fucking it cause the drama is what people want trump talking about locker up. He rode that fucking bullshit to the White House. Biden can do the same fucking thing just less like an evil villain. He can do it with a fucking smile demented GRANDPA smile. You're going to jail man. That's it over. He wins period. People are GONNA fuck. Get a huge Boehner about that. Give it a fucking narrative make it seem like a movie? Everything needs to seem like a movie against trump. If you'RE GONNA fucking play against him. You need to do that. Should make it a drama. Make it a political thriller. You're going to jail man anyway. That's my two cents. I should be a fucking political strategist. All political strategies. Obviously suck so. Let me in and I'll help you hire me Joe and you listen to this podcast fucking hire me Coming up on. Yeah I am before I get into his next shit. I'm going to take a brady and then after the break I got some more fucking good to shit for you I'll talk to you on other side. Don't go anywhere Matt.

My shiny new hero follower Vic Burger but Also follow him if you don't if you don't follow him what the fuck you doing. He's like the fucking guy and But I do want to talk about though is talked but there's a little bit on Sunday. I want to talk about it more but I was running at a time so now that have time. I'm going to get into it now. Karen's we all know what. Karen's are Care and if you don't know if you live under a fuck in Iraq Cairns are like white women who I don't know how the name really got stuck like I don't know why it's Karen but it's like entitled White women who Either run off at the mouth about by Shit. That isn't really something that puts people out. But it's putting it's putting Karen out and it usually involves something about like something fucked up like a class issue or race issue in lately. There's been a lot of these women caught on camera either complaining about Corona Virus Shit And sort of revealing how spoiled they fucking are or. There's one in the news now. That is fucking insane. This woman is definitely getting canceled. And honestly I find that when people are getting canceled. I always think well. I don't know if that's really warranted. But this isn tents shit dude this in this video This Wollman is I guess. She's at Central Park in. Her Dog. Is Off Leash and a guy asks her to put her dog on the leash because there at fucking central park and their signs everywhere. I used to live in New York. I know this. There are signs everywhere. Tell everyone you can't have your dog off leash inside Central Park for obvious reasons. But this Karen has Let's see let me just play for you. Actually this Karen got some serious fucking Shit. She lost her shit and honestly talk about what's happening as it's happening because you can't see one of the super fucked up. She's doing but the setup is this fucking guy is bird watcher. He's not. It's not his job but he likes to bird watch and he. I think I read somewhere. He like works for like fucking marvel or something but he's just he's just a guy at central park he does happen to be black. That should have nothing to do with it. I Don Veasley but unfortunately it fucking does as you'll see in the video but the thing that you can't see that she's doing is that instead of putting her dog on Leash. She grabs it by the fucking caller and the entire time that she's freaking out for absolutely no fucking reason she's jerking the dog around by the neck and like lifting it up off the ground. The dogs getting all excited. Because she's excited and she's so frazzled and out of her shit she's like doesn't think to actually put the leash on the dog so instead she just Yank in the fucking poor dog animal abuse. I mean it looks like the dog might fucking at very least pass out but possibly even how its neck broken? She's swinging it around by the neck a chill anyway. The fucking thing asking you to stop. Please don't come to me pretty soon. Post please don't come close. Please call the COPS please call. The man threatened my life gone. Excuse me dog. The US recording let my dog African. He's accordingly reading myself and my dog grandma. Thank you finally put fucking dog on a leash and he says thank you. I mean what is fucking wrong with? People these videos. Here's the thing I don't understand and that woman's getting fucking hammered. I think she got fired. I think they took her dog away. Which look everything she's doing is fucked up the fucking African American man thing like what is up with your brain. In that situation or describing. Him doesn't matter that's basically like saying there's a man with pants and he's asking me to put my dog leash and he's really scaring me like they're just naming a detail about his description. Obviously we all know what that means. It's loaded. She's being fucking racist asshole and completely escalating the situation calling the cops because someone asked her to put a fucking leash on her dog in a place where dogs can't be off leash also the fact that she says. I'M GONNA call the cops and tell them there's an African American men whatever the fuck like that is kind of secretly the most fucked up part because she's basically threatening. That's that's a double threat you know it's like it's such an insidious to even think to say to even have that in your mind to be like you know what. I'M GONNA call the COPS I'm GonNa Fuck and call the cops and also say that you're African American like what the fuck is that shit as we all know. Police brutality is often directed wrong at African American males in particular. So we all know what that fucking means. And I'm sure she's trying to wiggle out of that shit but I mean she's so fucked also. I didn't even the first time I saw him a watch it to the end because it was so upsetting. But I do that kind of shift for you because I love you all so much. That dog is almost choked out. She ends up having to put it on the ground. And like it's like trying to rework it's fucking neck. That has been almost broken but what I was says. I don't understand why when everyone knows that everyone has a camera on them on them. Not pointed at them. But in the Everyone has a camera in their pocket. Now and it would make a lag time on this. I mean fucking clearly. There's a lag time on this but you would think that having camera pointed in your face by someone who you're vehemently at least disagreeing with to put it mildly what you should do in that case is stop acting fucking crazy and stop doing things that could get you canceled. It seems like the most obvious thing. Especially this fucking happens all the fucking time that one usually I watch these and I'm like I mean I don't WanNa even be doing this buck. Everyone has a bad moment. I really try to be as like Shit. I mean when I think about like the the the the fucking freak outs that I've had on people I mean I'm fucking ecstatic thrilled that none of those exist on camera. I mean obviously it. Don't do the fucking racist Shit because not a racist but I've definitely like hauled the fuck off on people in truly dip shish dumb ugly ways and if it was on camera I would think but that's not me I my mind broke for a minute or whatever so I I feel like I have a really long none of unintended leash on like this. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt when they lose their fucking shit but I mean faulk. How many boxes you want to check. It's like she's the trying to make people never ever forgive her. She's being racist she's trying to kill a dog. She's calling the cops for no reason. Jesus fucking going all out just going for it and I got to say in this one. I don't. I don't have sympathy for this particular Karen between the racism and the animal abuse. Yes she should not own an animal and yeah I mean if their employer I be like Hey So you're racist and harm your own dog. I know that doesn't really necessarily in a direct way to do with your telemarketing job. Or whatever the fuck she does. But I'm GonNa let you go and I'm not really that sorry for it and unique therapy and don't have a dog and don't go to parks and honestly just stay inside for the rest of your life and I would leave it. Obviously with style snuck up on the fucking spy on but yeah I mean you hear a lot about white men and how shitty they are patriarchy and everything white men. Let's just do this up front? We all know how much white men suck. It's true many white men suck many white. Men historically have shocked many white men will continue to suck but as these videos go to show. Ya why women got a fucking thing going on onto Yeah so the to the Karens out there I have two pieces of advice one. Chill the fuck out. Why are you also ready to fucking just slowing it? Just why the fuck off the handle I factors these women than men at least lately But I chill out actually. That's it just Out Because if you chill out assuming you'll stop being fucking classist racist and whatever the fuck other is you are that you shouldn't be but it's really it's really a upsetting and if you act like that in public even in public rather even on camera in public you have truly deep problems What else fucking. I'm GONNA do I'm GONNA do twitter twitter questions now. Those fucking fun last week or on. Sunday is the first one. I have been listening to Sunday service whilst doing laundry at the LAUNDROMAT. My quiet time without the family. My question is how do we keep saying in all this insanity honestly I I think I mean I i. If I didn't do this podcast I would take this advice because this is advice that I give to people who come to me with. They say they're anxious and whatever the fuck losing their minds. I think the first piece of advice I have is stop. If you're doing this. Stop reading the News Not Stop paying attention entirely to the news but I have a sense that a lot of people who are really freaked right now are constantly reloading. Some fucking news page is getting the latest piece of confusing fucking Shit. The latest sign that the world is ending. Try To fucking keep it local. Keep your shit local and I mean that vertically like not just world news or not just news but also keep your concerns local fucking cliche the day by day thing but in this case I mean cliches. Come from somewhere in. That is fucking good advice. Keeping saying I don't know if I would be able to even do that if I didn't if I wasn't able to continue to work throughout this entire thing is a lot of people who like their job and cannot do it right now and if you're one of those people I honestly I don't even know what to tell you fucking hold on tight. I'm pretty sure you'll be back to work very soon. Like a stand up. Comedian or something. Then you fucked. What is something that you find confusing lately? Oh my God. I don't have enough time but I will say this speaking of just paying attention to the news but I find confusingly is how frequently I mean sounds dumb but it'll make more sense. Go on how frequently. The news is changing the news specifically about the pandemic is changing. And I've I think I've talked about this before but to get straight just plain news about what's going on is fucking difficult and that shouldn't be true right now. I I saw fucking I think it was a governor of North Dakota and he almost started crying. He's a Republican governor and he got choked up during this press conference. He was talking about how this shouldn't be a political issue. Masks shouldn't be a political issue. It's simple respect issue. Some people have five year olds at home. They don't want to get sick. Some people take care of the elderly people. They don't want to get them sick. Because some people can people can fucking die and it's a simple act of respect to wear a mask but to stick with the mass things. People don't want to wear masks. People want to believe that shutting down the economy was a good idea to as a symbol to to fight that to combat that they insist that mass aren't necessary and then that narrative comes its own narrative people who just want to get back to work have come up with this rallying. Cry of masks because that's visible. It's an identifier. It's part of a group identity thing if you don't ask you can be looked at now and clearly be seen as someone who has a certain kind of politics fucking. I was in my elevator the other day and fucking friend of mine Sh- the elevators going up. He's coming up. This was this was on Memorial Day him and his wife or going to the roof to cook things on the grow. Elevator Doors Open. They both get on. She's wearing a mask he's not. He's got his hands full and he says Oh shit. I'm sorry. I forgot my mask understandable. I literally just did that when I went to check my mail forgotten but a mascot but he immediately said it and I know him and I know he obviously made a mistake but he actually had to say in this sucks and I don't blame him for saying I would consider to. I would've said something like at least I don't know if I said what. Is it exactly this but what he said? It didn't make me upset with him at all. Maybe that he even had to sit in the first place but what he said was. I'm not a Republican or anything. I just forgot my mask. And that's fucking depressing so confuses me when I'm made aware so many different fucking narratives. Don't mask I just wish. People read more transparent about what the fuck is motivating them to say this or that and the news shouldn't have any motivations besides giving us the news. It's it's actually stupid that there are different. News outlets with different things to say news is news. Every news outlet should be saying the fucking thing and we should be reading it based on the kind of either writers employ or Kinds of things they cover but there shouldn't be literally different news because you don't know what's editorialized and what's not as trump said Fucking dip shit tweet that I covered on Sunday. A lot of people would disagree. Fox News is doing nothing to help. Republicans or me win in November. That's not their fucking job. Kind is sadly but that's not how it should be fucking openly talks about state news. Hey Your fucking idiot. While the fact that there are certified. Ufo's might be interesting question. Mark unless I see. Eli Drop a new propulsion system into the news. We have aliens. I don't know what that means but what I do know. Is that if there was proof of aliens? Therefore there's not proof of aliens and what the fuck you talking about l. Faulk I just got tagged in a sick thing. This is actually originally from Travis. View Travis is the host is He was a guest on the podcast. I should have a back. Actually now. They'RE GONNA start. Start having guests again in June but this is his tweet he says this week on Cunanan anonymous. That's his podcast. We explored a zoom base. Kyun on Church called Omega Kingdom Ministries. They preach a bizarre theology that blends Q. Drops and Bible verses. Wow I related to them. Most when they ask God to protect their Internet connection. Because not gonNa live done that all right. I'm GonNa play this for you. I watched this earlier. This is this like if if if insanity was like a branch of a tree this would be right out on the end just hanging on by the tiniest tiniest amount this is the most matt this maximum sanity. Also this guy's goatee is as big as fucking New Hampshire shave it. Okay here we ask you to protect our laptops are I. Phones are smartphones equipment. The Zoom Room. Our Modems the Internet Lord. We were taken back the Internet for you taking back the airwaves or the king and his kingdom Lord we ask your protection over. Everyone's internet connectivity. Today in the Modems and Zoom Room. Seal it up tight by the blood of Jesus. What thank you father. Hey Man you're not good at praying you know. Give someone else Mike when you're to pray guaranteed I'm GonNa fuck as people believe in him though. Guarantee it fucking while Travis Dude. You're who are doing God's work the shit he sees. Oh my God on a day-to-day basis. How do you? How DOES HE LOSE HIS MIND? You guys asked me sometimes how do you? How do you stay with all this stuff? You look at talk about on. The podcast have fucked as he stay saying. He's like an actual researcher of Shit. What do you think of Robert? I love his movies. The which is amazing like Robert eggers. He did the lighthouse to. I think he's a genuinely mind and super talented. I think he's I I. I'm happy and I'm excited to see His movies I'm happy and I'm excited. Wow well fuck it. I'm sticking by that. It was very bad sentence. But I mean. Can you share filmmaking process for example like your feature and maybe some points to share for the journey of trying to be a filmmaker I mean I. I can't get into whole process because that will be boring but it's fucking hard. It takes a lot of time and money and a lot of resilience in the sense of. You're going to get told no fucking time you're GonNa get told no and no matter. How Successful Your. You're going to be told no it's like baseball like if you're batting three hundred you're doing pretty good that's three. That's success three out of ten times. I mean the rate in my industries way less than that but it's similar. It's like the way you have to look at. Success has to be changed because of the amount of time you're going to get rejected or denied or told no but the one I think point to share as this person asks I Find I look out at the landscape now certainly of younger filmmakers and I see people. Filmmakers may making movies that are designed or tailored to be in what is now basically a genre of independent cinema meaning everyone that's not trying to make a fucking marvel movie ultimately which is almost everybody but everyone that purports to try to be original. Obviously there are people like Robert. Eggers who are exceptions? But I see a lot of these kinds of movies. That seemed like they were designed to get into a festival like sundance with bothers me. Because I that's hurting their chances of success because the thing that's GonNa make you. Successful is whatever is the most thing that you can do. I'm not saying different for the sake of being different. I'm saying be you whatever that is. There's so much shit out there. The way to originality is to do the thing that you do whatever that is sometimes you have to discover that what do I do? I don't know if go out and do it American animal for better or worse. That is and probably will always be no matter. How many movies make after that? The most me a movie could possibly be and I knew that going into it and I thought fuck it if this fails. That's all right because at least it's maximally me and that if I have advice to an aspiring filmmaker is my advice this please and then link to that fucking central park. Karen says her life is being destroyed over viral video. While you know what? Do you expect zero sympathy like I said Who's more Bitch Aladdin or Elmo? Damn that's a good question but it's also very easy. Answer Aladdin okay. I'm talking about Aladdin for second. Actually remake of the movie is the fucking dumbest looking thing I've ever seen in my life. The recent remake of Aladdin with will Smith as the genie is the dumbest looking thing I've ever seen in my life. I mean aesthetically. I don't mean the movie looks like it's a bad movie. Obviously it's bad. What I mean is aesthetically. It's the dumbest looking thing I've ever seen in my life presentation because of the re the recency bias of The recent Aladdin remake. But I'M GONNA go with Aladdin on that one good question. Now you've talked about the most Russian way to kill someone so now I want to know what's the most British way to kill someone I well. There's two kinds of British people. I think you know there's like the fuck in high. The in terms of the stereotypical British people. There's like high society like super proper British person and their way of killing. Someone is obviously poison their t but as another really fucked up British Waco someone that not many people know about. I think people know about the tea poisoning. But there's another kind words like the country. You see a lot of these folk horror movies which is kind of originate folklore as a film genre or really literature. Johner before it was filmed Jonah. A lot of that comes from Britain. And so there's the tea poisoning the high society more or Bain educated class. They poison your t in England or Britain in they also the other the other kind the more on the outskirts of rural Britain way to kill someone to do something fucking horrible and cultish hammer them to across and burn them alive. While fifty of your fellow Villagers Watch and Mike Chat something so those are the two most British ways to customize t poisoning or nailing someone to across putting kindling and gas and writing them ablaze while fifty of your fellow villagers chant as the person Burns alive. Then it's like in wicker man you know T- poisoning or wicker man. It's one of the other. That's the only ways people get murdered in Britain. Trust me are I think that's it I I. I think I'm done. I'm done because I want to be done. Maybe I'll do one more would see. Why do we age at a different speed in space while the answer is relatively but the real answer is because honestly the real answer is because shit is fucking crazy? That's true? Maybe you haven't thought about that before but I think about it. All the time should fucking crazy. There's a fucking parasite that injects fuck. Is it called Emerald? I'M GONNA look it up right now. That'll be the last thing I do just trying to get at this idea. That shit's crazy Okay it's called an emerald cockroach wasp or jewel wasp. It is known for its unusual reproductive behavior which involves stinging a cockroach and using it as a host for its Larvae K. So it injects this paralyzing enzyme into a very particular part of the brain of a cockroach so the P- the cock can't move anymore but it needs to get it exactly the right part of its brain. It Fox cockroach runs away. So it injects it with precision paralyzes the cockroach takes the cockroach to little fucking cave area and puts its babies inside the cockroach. The babies are born the cockroach can't fucking move. Obviously because it stuck in this little cave and enclosed there by the time it can move. Can't move and the baby's eat their way out of the cockroach and then there are more. Joel. Wasps point is should fucking crazy. Then don't ever let anybody tell you it's not Okay actually excited. I just got a text from my producer its link to the temporary merch store. So I'm just about to look at that. That will be up soon. As will video component of the podcast both of which. I'm very excited about both of which are coming very soon I love you all. Thank you for listening I greatly appreciate you stay safe. Stay healthy stay home as much as you can still even though you're fucking bored. Just do it stay safe style and gains added.

Matt D’Elia Is Confused

Coastal Elites & Save The Children

"Hello and welcome to is confused. This is Matt. Lee and. The entire West Coast is on fire. So. That's cool We really needed that this year we absolutely needed that this year This year wasn't shitty enough. I'm in California I'm in Los Angeles has many of you know. can't really God's side without. Reading in an You can't go outside with breathing and entire pack of cigarettes every time you step outside. Which is nice. And I I'm sure some of you are many of you have probably seen the pictures of the San Francisco fires which I believe is called the August fire I can't even keep up there. So many I think the Oregon one is the worst the August fire just north of San Francisco or Sacramento is the biggest wildfire in terms of acreage that California has ever known. So yeah it's fucking great but the one down the shit down in L. A.. I can speak first hand to that when I. See the pictures of the one outside of San Francisco I. It looks like a still from a bad movie. Looks like some book of Eli Shit. I can't believe I just shit on Denzel movie in public. Denzel Washington is the single greatest entertainer of all time and obviously the if he's a single gender all time, he's the single greatest actor of all time and if anybody says otherwise. fuck in we can step outside and settle this once and for all But Yeah it looks like book of Eli in the pictures of the fire outside San. Francisco and there's shit going on for. Real. I saw footage of it and I read about it. And it's real I. thought it was a fake thing like shark NATO. Like Shark NATO is a fake thing that thing on the fucking. Fi. Channel about or Tornado Salami Nami that. Takes the sharks out of the. Water and onto the land and the sharks attack in that guy fucking ins airing from nine to ano is in a an. and. It's so fucking bad. I thought it was fake when I first read it. The thing I'm about to say, but it's real and if you doubt me when I say it, you can look it up if you want. But you could also take my fucking word for it's real. It's called a fire NATO. And that sounds like a slang term or casual fucking term. It's not. It's what meteorologist mid. Meteorologists call it a fire NATO. Is a tornado within a fire. That is basically a tornado that is full of fire. I mean I don't know I don't know what else to say that's what it's fucking called and they those are in existence in real life and they're really happening right now in the fire up north now the fire down in La any when you wake up, it's dark in the middle of the day. It's dark at night it's dark it's always dark. It's some fucking book of Eli Shit for Real. California burning and just like in two thousand eighteen when the campfire which actually in terms of death count was significantly worse even though it wasn't bigger than this fire. Like I said, this is the biggest fire California's ever known. Ever. and. It's obviously reignited large conversation about climate change and how to combat it and every time there's a big massive fire, which is every fucking year at least once in California. and now Oregon as well. There's a whole. New Conversation about it. As if anybody's GONNA actually fucking anything and nobody's actually gonNA fucking do anything the world's just GONNA keep getting hotter and hotter. The shorelines are GonNa keep encroaching and coaching and coaching, and pretty soon we're GONNA be like fucking Kevin Costner Jane tripplehorn and Dennis Hopper in the movie. Westworld. That is our certain future. Some people want to slow that down. and. There's all different takes some people want to stop it and reverse it some people like Andrew Yang WanNa face it as the reality that is as in it's too late and we need to start reacting to that. Now. Take preventative measures and move people literally move people inland. To higher ground. So fucking depressing but true. And some people. Some people like. The person you're about to find out. The person about the play, an audio recording of. Some people just. Don't think it's a thing. Now Look I'm actually. I wouldn't say I'm torn about this, but there's an element of the climate conversation centered around fires. That I find a little bit bothersome and it's and it's the immediate politicisation of fires. They are worse because of climate change, they are more prevalent, more likely because of climate change. But they're also happening because of forest mismanagement. That's just a reality. And so this immediate knee-jerk politicisation of it seems to be something we should address once the fires are put out an all energy should go towards. Putting out the fires literally that is an expression putting out fires. But in this case, literally get the fires fuck over with and then have the conversation. Anyway that is a small fucking little minor issue I suppose. But I just saw BEF- right before. sitting down to do this. I was sent a clip. Okay. So just like. Donald Trump came to visit California begrudgingly because as everyone knows, he hates anyone on. And particularly in. California because Californians. By, and large hate him. And as Not Most presidents do but as this president does anybody who hates him, he outwardly hates back. Even if they're American, he is supposed to represent just the same as the people who love him. Oh. Well, right anyway. trump begrudgingly came to California again and today there is a press conference as he's here as he's visiting a press conference about what the do in the face of it and. To be. Full disclosure here. I didn't watch the fucking thing. Because I don't watch it like that. because. WHY WOULD I? I don't need more things to make me upset I, need less. or rather if anything I need less I don't need to. Stoke the flames. Of My mind. So if I can avoid it I do and therefore I don't watch press conferences featuring donald trump. However, this one I was sent a clip of and when it's in thirty seconds, I can take it. And I'm GonNA play for you. The Guy who's talking I don't know who it is. He has something to do with containing or controlling her figuring out forest fires. In California. He's at some table set with microphones with several other people all wearing masks. How one looks like he's with the fire. Department. So. Does another one a couple them look like maybe politicians are fucking. The one talking now is wearing a suit and he looks like all the rest of them with short hair looks like fucking. Want went to high school with him. Okay So that and and and that table is facing Donald Trump who is not wearing a mask and he's all alone at his own table Solo and the guy is directing his questioning. The first thing you can hear is that guy directing his words at the president okay. So just listen to this and. We're seeing this warming trend, make our summers warmer but also our winters warmer as well. But I think one area of mutual agreement and priority is vegetation management. But I, think we want to work with you to really recognize the changing climate and what it means to our forest and actually work together with that science science is going to be key is if we if we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand and think it's all about vegetation management, we're not going to succeed together protecting Californians. It'll start getting cooler. You just watch. I. Wish Science. L. I don't think signs knows actually Tom. Fuck. Fuck you know? He's president. But Oh I mean you know We're not going to succeed protecting Californians. It'll start getting cooler. You just watch. I wish science. News actually Tom. Work I don't. Think Science knows actually. Hey Man. Science, by nature of being science knows fucking everything. Okay. That's number one number two don't steal my shit for anyone listening closely. Heard him say Kay. Don't like that don't fucking like the president stealing I shit. I don't blame him. Because K. Works and he was getting pissed off. Was Getting pissed off and he was in public and he had a microphone in front of his face and he knew he had to fuck an answer to answer and they said Kay and that's understandable. Because that is the thing we should do when we're pissed off and don't want to be. However I don't like that he took my shit. I don't approve of that. That was me opening a fucking Perria. Why am I not sponsored yet? Sponsor me. Perrier. For me. And I had to open. Because It's nine thousand fucking degrees in here. And it's even hotter because the climate change and it's even hotter hotter because of the fuck fucking. Fuck and fires going on right now in California. Book, of Eli Outside. I don't really think the science knows. Who They? Are. He's president. Also. Start Getting Cooler just watch what? Your GonNa get the fucking popcorn. We're going to Seton watch a get cooler. While my state burns down. That's not a response also, I don't think the science knows. Fine Fucker I'm going to start saying that. Shit. When somebody says, should I don't WanNa fuck and deal with. Those You know smoking smoking or kill you. Now I. Don't know. Smoking's GonNa. Make me live longer. You'll see just watch. While you know Matt I really I wish that was true. I, wish I just wish the science agreed with you. Well you know what I don't think the science really knows I. Don't think the science knows. Aren't keep smoking. It he has this thing actually this opens it up into something else that I was thinking about all week actually. Because he he he has a there's that new. Bob. Woodward book called Rage in which. There are. Woodward had eighteen phone conversations with all of them are recorded. And in in them trump's admits. To downplaying the virus because he didn't want to create a panic. and. So the media is making a big deal out of that understandably because. He's he's saying he's not basically saying he is saying he knew it was more dangerous than lead on, but he didn't want to tell the American people because you didn't trust them to not fly into a panic about it. and. Shit like this too i. mean it's recorded. So it's different but in general I think there's a thing that he has which is hard to even like. Wrap your head around the. fucked up -ness of it. But. He does such fucked up shit and says such fucked up. That when you hear about it. You're just like that now no way no, no, no one. No one said that. No one said it's and it's not. It has nothing to do with him right? It's not about. Defending him. And Bear with me here because because. I'm absolutely not fucking defending him. So chill. So fucking chill. But I'm saying when hear I think a knee jerk natural kneejerk reaction to someone saying the shit he says doing the shit he does. You're just like, no, that's not a thing someone would say. This is this fits right in with that I don't think the science knows. And so you start to do this thing almost automatically rear like did he means something else? Like when he says, I don't think the science knows. WHEN HE RECOMMENDS INGESTING bleach or whatever the fuck to to cure corona virus. You're just like I don't he because I have a brain. Cognitive dissonance. Going on in my brain. While I'm like but he couldn't. because. That's not. How. Could he possibly there's no way someone could. And you go down that path, but you go down that path far enough and you end up at. I guess he really just means it. And it's I. Guess What? What my ultimate point is that there's some kind of sick genius in that. Saying such fucked up Shit. So often. that it puts normally thinking people into a fucking tailspin. Like keep commodity must have meant something else sees the president. I don't think science knows ingest bleach. Graham by the Pussy. Nonstop Shit. But I'm telling you. And I'm not the first to tell you help. But he means the ship. It's unbelievable but believe it he means it. And I remember when I was younger, I remember thinking. I don't care. What someone is actually like if they're a good president or a good leader or a good whatever. As, long as they're good serving the public well. Then fine. Like I remember with Clinton when he when when I mean before I knew way more about what I know about him. Now when I thought he was just philanderer into the cigar thing with Monica Lewinsky. Whatever the fuck actually forget the details. But I was like I don't care. I mean I care. But I don't care enough to like. Try want him to not be the president. Private character matters not that much to me, but public persona does matter. When you seem a fucking idiot. And are a fucking idiot. Or are blustery fucking Asshole who says Blustery Aso Inflammatory Bullshit. WHO Says Shit like? Science knows which is like saying I. Don't think the sky is blue. Well, congratulations on that thing that you think which is fucking not right. You can't think of thing. About the fact, you can't think a thing about fact. You can think the sky's not blue. All you want. But it is. It's eight thousand degrees got mosquito by bites. The world's on fire. Depressing election seasons here. Talkin pandemic is still going on. Everything's Free. Shoes on. To. Gain Con Kit Jaw. Sin. Psalm. Linda mark in home jump through the top bomb. ding-dong. Phone Ice Tea, and gave a bomb. This is. Heavy. You know. Co elect all my troubles, collect all my grievances, collect all my anger. After hearing that song and I can deduct it at the people who made that song. Easier to manage my fury and discontent and confusion. ETC etc.. At. One thing and so when I play that song even though wallets on I like dancing and singing to it after it's off my brain, my normal brain takes back over. And advises me. That songs is shit and and and it's bad for everything including my mind. And then I'm only mad at that. Telling you. It's counter intuitive, but it fucking works. Now, I'm not even thinking about the fire burning down my entire state shitty fucking election season eight, thousand mosquito bites in the eight thousand degree weather in here. Or. The fucking pandemic. I'm only only only thinking about. that. Shoes on. Let's. Get. Sin Song runamuck get. To the top the Brown. That shit is where it's at when it's on after on, I fucking hated but when it's going jump up to the top the Brown. I know what I know what? I know what I I know what I know what I. I know what I need to talk about. I was sent. So. There's a lot of as you all probably know. And might agree with I don't know. There are anti there are still anti mask. Protests or whatever the fuck you. WanNa, call yet protests. And the footage from them. I mean months ago. Months ago. On my quarantine USA episodes, I would play clips from these protests, but they're still going on and there's one in Utah I don't know who is yesterday or today or. Or I guess it was this morning the new stories from this morning. but there's some truly. Incredible people at these things. and. That's the thing that I always come back to if they're right why are wire they? These people do you know? Tonight even be political about it forget the politics. If they're right about masks. Why are they them? Because the people who are them. Are are not people who are right about things in general. Do you know what I mean. Like if there was like an area date fucking smart seeming. Personnel. These protests that were like look. I don't think masks are the thing I think mass are actually hurting us and here's why and it was just boom boom boom boom down a list. I might not agree with them but I'd be like. Okay well, at least that person has thought it through but they're all not like that ever. None of them are like that ever. Back. Anyway I. WanNa play some Shit from this one and there's one particular part that will hopefully stand out to you because it stood out to me and fucking cake song I play right now. Doesn't Nice little taste. Here's a minute now. Hundreds have gathered here in front of the county administration building calling for the end of a mouse mandate saying they are tired of not living their normal lives. A passing it call for action Friday morning and Saint George Subtle police officers on standby many locals called concerns about coronavirus spikes overblown flu kills wars than coronavirus others calling the virus hoax or stated. I just WANNA interrupt that. That person was seven. So okay I'm GONNA keep going. The the flu killed more people than the corona virus. The the Poopie and whether my mommy. I Cuba. Call for action Friday morning in Saint George. Several police officers on standbys. Many locals call concerns about coronavirus spikes overblown. They'll flu cook kills more than Curl Virus. Hoax or stadium at ason traumatic carriers simply do not exist and they cannot be forced to wear masks anywhere as citizens of the United States. If we want to wear a mask, that's fine we can take care of ourselves some rally attendees they shouldn't ever wear masks if they have any medical issues or mental health concerns or they feel they simply tell breeze when George Floyd was saying, I can't breathe and then he died and we're in a mask and we say I can't breathe though are vapourised anyway but mentor. The. Worst. fucking equivalency ever Kumaon. Owners. Don't can say that. The. Here's the thing about the I can't breathe in the masks argument. Where there was a fucking politician somewhere in Arizona. Fuck that gotten serious shit for saying exactly what that woman just said. Here's the thing about mass though people were masks all the time of all different kinds. Firefighters were masks, doctors wear masks. A lot of people were mass I wear a mask when I go outside. Nobody ever. In the history of ever. has stopped breathing and died. Because, they're wearing a mask. This is not a thing that happens. Okay so no to that woman. Donor. All cases now shepherd is kids health parents are demanding they have the right to decide what to do with their children. I'll tell you another reason I behave masks, boss child molesters. are. Betty Jake Washington county resident. I'M GONNA play that part for you again because. fucking. Wow. Okay. Anyway. Anyway that they believe in all chases now shepherd is kids health parents are demanding the right to decide what to do with their children. I'll tell you another reason I'd hate masks most child molesters. Sounds are protesting them based on a mandate given by the governor they blocked off the front interest. That's a normal guy who cares about the normal guy I'll tell you another reason I don't like him. Child Molesters Love Them. The Save the children thing has gotten out of hand. The Cunanan saving thing has gotten the fuck out of fucking. Hand. Why Are these mother fuckers sober says. If you really WanNa fuck and do something if you really WanNa Save. The children. Stop. Worrying about masks stop being a believer in Q. and non stop being a conspiracy theorist. And go down the street. To your local fucking church. And Yank every fucking kid out of that church. Because More fucked up child-molestation Shit is going out going on places of fucking worship. Then anywhere else. And that is fact. And I know some of you mother fuckers don't like facts because I don't think the science knows, but it's true. Since the fucking mask mandates were going on there hasn't been an uptick in child molestation. Okay. That part of a conspiracy theories by the way has been with us since Salem since before Salem, all the way up through the satanic panic all the way up through now in Cunanan. Fuck are these crazy motherfucker. So obsessed with child molestation. But they are. But if they really WANNA save the fucking children. Go to. Your church. Go to your. Local church. and. pull out each and every one of those fucking kids and tell them hey, kid. You WanNa have a good life you want to be safe. Leave here, and if you WANNA come back when you're fully fully fucking able. And can fight back if somebody does some shit, you don't like then fucking comeback as an adult, but you're fucking kid and let me tell you something this place. Ain't fucking safe for you. It's so fucking stupid and I guarantee you all these mother fuckers go to church. And their fucking kids to be at church no, that's one place. You shouldn't trust your kid to be at. Or Trust your kid but don't trust them fuckers around. Child molesters. Rama. Nobody Jake. Show me the fucking study that says, child, molesters love masks. fucking people. If they're right. Why. Are they then? If they were right. They would be other people who are more right about shit. There's no more straightforward argument than that. It doesn't Puck, fuck it pass the sniff test it doesn't pass the test. If you're right. Betty Jake. Why are you? And why are you not someone else who's more right about shit? That sounds too simple too simplistic to be true but it just fucking is why are all of these mother fuckers? then. They need to be other people for me to believe them. And this is the fucking stone called facts on the ground okay? And I don't think the science knows. Oh Yeah. Fuck you. All right. Well, I mean I'm so fucking hot. Take a break right now and we'll be back and I'm GONNA shit on so fucking liberals. On the other side. So I'm going to try keep fucking fair and Balanced Fox News Fair and balanced don't go anywhere.

Mine Mine Mine. Mine. All, right. So moving on from fucking ass heads on the right side of the spectrum GonNa move on over a assets on the left side of the spectrum. HBO Has a new thing out a new movie out. Written by Paul Rudnick directed by Jay Roach. called. Coastal elites. And I can tell you what it is but I I I I'm GONNA. Just read the official synopsis. Five characters make confessions under quarantine that touch on their lives during the twenty, twenty pandemic and living in a world of deeply divided politics now. I believe it is put forward in put forward in the world put forth as. A satire. There's two things about that that want to say satires are funny. And I didn't even smile once while watching this. And also. satires. Don't. Prop up an empathize with the thing they're portraying. They fucking roast them. What happened a satire? When did everybody lose their fucking teeth? satires the most lacklustre fucking pussy shit in the world now. Nobody, has the courage to actually do it. The last big satire movie. If you could even call it that I know it called itself that was Joe Joe Rabid called itself an anti hate satire. that. It was on the poster if you've got to put that on the fucking poster. You are not bold enough to be making a satire in the fucking first-place. anti-hate center Oh. Yeah. You just fucking pulled the teeth out of your own fucking movie. You got a fucking spoonfeed us what it is. Then at eight a fucking satire. Anyway coastal elites is actually five characters are all. Just obviously coastal elites. And when I first heard about it I thought and I didn't know who made it I knew it was an HBO thing but I thought it might have teeth because it seemed like something. That was going to. Make Fun of itself. Make Fun of coastal elites. which you know you can do if you are a coastal lead which I suppose I qualify as. I'm to make fun of me and my own. There's plenty to make fun of. But they should just nibbles at the edges. And takes like little soft punches. On the painless parts of the body. But. It's really just showing us. Five characters. That were supposed to see ourselves in. which is to say, it's for only one person with one kind of ideology. The kind that the title would imply. Just to give you an idea of how successful of a movie it is. At Random Not Random it's going to go in order. I'm going to read user reviews or at least the first couple of lines of them. From IMDB. So this first says ten out of ten. Excellent. And here's the review. This speaks to my soul and mirrors my fears and anger that people. So devoid of compassion could end up quoting leading this country. Okay. Nine out of ten powerful leave it at that. HBO throws down the gloves in a brave and bold stand against the current administration. My apologies for refusing to say his name. They're largely preaching to the choir. I suspected this point. Oh. Yeah. What makes you say that? Not, at ten loved it such great writing and acting. Each of the five pieces is tour force. No, it's not the writing and the acting on credible it all fits together powerfully in the end. No it's not yet actors actually good give it up give it up to them. Ten Attend Truth Truth get used to it. You may not like it which means you need a reality check. By the way. If you can't tell these are not reviews that would imply the viewer understood it as a satire. Nine ten intelligent entertainment they have to make this series. Ten ten worth watching everyone can identify with the characters. If you're going to identify with the character and a satire you've fucked up, you fucked up making it. Ten at ten gripping honest. This film captures the dynamics. So many of us are facing during these particularly confounding times. One out of ten, they made a movie about their tedious, which obviously is trump derangement syndrome. This was beyond pathetic cringe-worthy television leftist haters are taking a thing to a new low just sad and then a sad face Emoji one out of ten just trash the worst. Point exclamation point exclamation point not funny in and just who you'd expect to see don't waste your time exclamation point exclamation point exclamation point. One out of ten utter garbage typical unintelligent leftist propaganda so far the absolute rock bottom movie this decade I mean come on I wouldn't go that fucking far. You seen any moral ship. Only, speaks to the narrow minded members of the leftist sect who live in their bubble of hate and writing on this rioting on the streets. Sad See. What ten nothing to see here one out of ten politics and pandering for idiots one out of ten. America is not the world for Fuck Sake. I mean it's it's literally. All people who gave it rave reviews. Who are liberal? In all people who give it the absolute worst possible review who are not liberal. I'm liberal. But this shit is not what I wanNA fuck and see. I'm on the far left and I want to see this ship. If you're going to satirize us make fun of us just fucking do it though. Don't fucking pull the punches and really just show like. I mean you got fucking see it. If you see it and laugh I. Don't know what to tell you. About the actors though I do as I often do. Most actors are fucking good. Just in general. But I don't know. I. Don't know coastal elites. If anybody listening. saw it and liked it fucking. Right to me tell me why maybe It just fucking floated past my brain. Anything's possible obviously. Also before I go I wanNA talk about. Am I the only one. Am, I the only one. Who Get so many. Emails and tax. Asking them. To, donate to various. Candidates. That makes you want to. Jump out a window. Any. Window the nearest window. I can't tell you every day. How many fucking emails and texts I get. Asking me to donate. From fucking politicians. From campaigns. That are nowhere near me. Help Democrats Turn Kentucky Blue. Get Mitch McConnell out of office I live in California. I live in California. What that means? People in Kentucky. Should do that if they want to. What the fuck would I be giving money to a place in Kentucky for to candidate. Kentucky for. And I know the actual answer? So the Democrats control the fucking Senate and House and they can push it through. But the Government Kentucky that's the government in the state of Kentucky. Yes I want amy McGrath to fucking beat. Mitch McConnell. Yes. I would like to shit on Mitch McConnell's head. But more than that I want Kentucky people to WanNa Shit on Mitch McConnell's head. And figure out a way to get his as out. Because a Kentucky people want Mitch McConnell to run their fuck and state. That's what they make their fucking bed. They gotTA sleep in it. I get so many emails. People in Virginia people in fucking House seats in Texas. Counties I never gonNA fucking heard of. And I swear I'm convinced it's because I. Donate it to Hillary's campaign in two thousand sixteen because I got none of that shit during the Obama years. When I was a fucking poor guy and when I became a non poor guy, I started giving money and I started giving money to Hillary. And other various California things because I live in California. And somehow my she got in the database. And now, every fucking Democrat by the way, it's not even only Democrats. It's like every fucking campaign ever was has a list of people who have ever donated to anything and that is blast shit out. The best part is. I never I didn't use my real I didn't use my name, my real name when I donated to Hillary. I. I use the name Phil. I use the name Phil. Harmonica okay. That's. The laughing because that's dumb I'm not laughing because that's funny. Can So. Stupid.

New York may be the first state in the country to decriminalise sex work. And South Carolina wants to add work requirements for Medicaid. Democrats. Pull a congressional pay raise Bill because of pushback. And Raines pratice joined the navy all this and more on today's program. Yes. That's not a huge story, rents Priebus. You all, remember rains previous he was the former chair of the Republican. National party. Then the became chief of staff I chief of staff for the Trump administration. And I don't know. It doesn't say in this. I, I haven't seen any. Thing any elaboration on this, but. I'm doing very ad hub place. But I think you great. Now, Sean Spicer, tweeted out an image of rent spray is in his naval uniform getting sworn in by. Mike pence. So pratice h forty seven he joined the navy. He joined the navy and. Apparently he was commissioned. After processing, where former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis recommended him an abortive officers selected him as a reserve officer. And he says, you know, I remembered my sister serve as a navy doctor and my father taught at the naval station, and he felt called to serve after the an office meeting in which Trump met with his wife and children of senior chief petty officer William rhino Owens navy. Seal officer who was killed. Special operations raid in Yemen. So he was professionally recommended by a board with four others to join the service through a competitive direct commission program for human resources offices officer. I for the life of me. I don't know exactly what's behind this. I just hope that it is an indication that. If you work for the Trump administration, no one will hire you in the civilian world. I wanted to lobby bear to make it easier to put taxes in the wider ways they would give a damn thing whole thing his garbage. Wants to see the world are made from his surprisingly hot wife. I've always wanted to see the orient what the hell surprising about it. I thought that story is complete garbage. But that's I hope that's what it is. But I, I don't think that it's only that there may be other things involved in this. Meanwhile on the hill yesterday. The House Judiciary committee. Heard testimony from former White House counsel. John dean was, obviously, Richard Nixon's White House counsel. Went on to write extensively about Nixon and about Thawra Tehran's in our government that was ten fifteen years ago. He saw that the Republican party was actually turning Thor -tarian. So the indications of that happening. And he's been brought on various capacities as a as a commentator. I'm not sure I fully get why I I understand the sort of the thinking, but it really is one dimensional thinking and clever, too clever by half, I think, by the Democrats to do this, but it may be the best that they could do with Nancy Pelosi, and we will talk about Nancy Pelosi. We have that clip of her Peterson God anyways, so in lieu of of impeachment hearings were getting this, which is apparently just to set the table. Now, of course, it did create some attention, and wherever there's attention. There is milkshake MAC, gets mad gets loves a, a slushy on a hot, Florida day is from the Florida panhandle and. Here he is questioning. John dean, he doesn't do a terribly good job. But he does get humiliated. And how do we know that Matt gaetz felt he got humiliated? I will tell you after the clip. Do you have personal knowledge regarding the truth or falsity of a single material fact, in the Muller report? I if you recall, the first thing I said, I'm not here as a fact, witness you're here to provide historical context exactly throughout history. You choose presidents of acting like Richard Nixon, and you make money off of it, right. Not all presidents now, but a few more of those who do act like him. I pointed out, we ask you this question. How do Democrats plan to pay for Medicare for all? I'm sorry. How do want figured if we're going to ask you about stuff? You don't know about we'd start with the big stuff. So do you know how they plan to pay for Medicare for all, who the Democrats or which candidate or more specific, let's get specific to Nixon since that appears to be why you're here. Do you actually Nixon did have a healthcare plan? Well, do you believe if we, if we turned the lights off here and maybe lit some candles, got out of ouija board? We could potentially raise the specter of Richard Nixon. I doubt that well. So now sounded much better in front of the mirror of Matt, right? Matt gates thought he was. Basically, he tried like three or four different tax. I'm going to go to this. Oh, John dean, actually may actually know how these candidates are going to pay for their healthcare. And I certainly don't want that to happen. So let's talk about Nixon. Oh, Nixon had a healthcare, and they all laughed at MAC gates. And. What's even more important than my assessment that they all laughed at Matt's gates is Matt gaetz assessment that they laughed at Matt gaetz. And how do I know that Matt gaetz felt they all laughed at him because there is no intern in Matt's gates office, who would have made the decision on their own to edit that video and release it in hide the fact? The John dean owned Matt gaetz in this exchange. Here is the video that has been put out by MAC gates. This is Irie, folks. Erie fifty thousand people have watched this, and they're missing the part where Matt gaetz gets metaphorically slush. She'd plan to pay for Medicare for all, who the Democrats or which candidate or more specific, let's get specific to Nixon's that appears to be while you're here, if we turn the lights off here and maybe lit some candles got out a ouija board. We could potentially raise the specter of Richard Nixon. There you go. They cut out that whole moment, the made it sound as of people were chuckling at his week Joe. Yeah, exactly. Because they got the tail end of the laughter. Here's the part, again to be while you're here if we turn the lights off here. So let's get specific to Nixon since that appears to be why you're here. If we turn the lights off, more well in man, let's get specific to skipping me million myself in spectacular fashion calling Vic burger I'm well. I'm well, forget, Vic burger this should be all over the news in Florida. I mean that is pretty stunning that he would edit it that way doctor in the public record. Yeah. It really is. And their fifty thousand people who watched his version already fifty thousand people, and you can bet a lot of those constituents.

How fear is rejoining are maps and infecting our politics. Stay. We are back Sam cedar on the majority report on the phone. It is a pleasure to welcome to the program, anthropologist, and socio professor at Oxford University, author of his latest, I should say, is no go world. How fear is redrawing are maps and infecting our politics Reuben. Anderson, welcome to the program. Thank you very much. Now, this is a follow up to elite illegality Inc. A clandestine migration of and the business of bordering Europe, which was. A largely in Nagasaki of, of, of migrants. And what just how did that book lead to this one? Right. So I was working police stone. On documented migration to Europe from west Africa for many was, my Facebook was about this is obviously you'd storing the news right now. Border security fighting, irregular migration that kind of thing we seeing that both the us Mexico border and a Europe. And that's the story I books, I was following Boorda gobs and their attempts to crack down on my Gration build fences launch patrols including African territory. I was following migrants in the bold last trying to cross these, these borders. So the new book no-go, just about the same part of the world that some extent about with Steph for gun, the conflict in security, and stability. That's hitting this part of the right now. And I guess one thing that ties together is really this issue migration, and the politics of fear surrounding let's see. I'm consoled migration from poorer contres tools west the way in which his ties into particular mapping the world does owns that scene. Sources of dangers of threats coming tools western. I look at this, both in the case of the use Mexico bordering, the book and in the case of your voice seeing more and more investments in border security, more and more wall that building similar types of controls rolled out to hold these kinds of. You talk about get us a red red zones and green zones, just for the. Just so that we are all on the same page. Like, what does that mean literally, you may recall all the bug A degrees? So during the Iraqi invasion, the idea bunkered part of the city that set apart from local society where it's very difficult to enter for any local. I think you know, way we're seeing globalisation of these idea of the green zone today on global including our borders over getting up or boaters trying to keep outside. So anything that's dangerous to, to, to our territories, outside them lies red zone. We see that's depicted very clearly on various kinds of risk advice. If you go to the State Department, if you go to any foreign ministry website, in Europe, you'll see maps of the world, that covered in red blocks of danger, huge podge of Africa from Mexico, Central America, large chunks of. Cents relatio- now. No goes out of reach as it's part of the one, we shouldn't go to seeing cruising division of a Cutie mapping into some of safety and danger in this red and green sums. I think it says something about or moment is excite you feel that we see in domestic politics in western countries, and we also see us here. An echo earlier times, colonial pre colonial times in the ways in which sodium, pox rematch, and then part of what I do in this new book is headed back into history. And see what we can learn from the Celje times, what I mean, give us a sense of, of, of those of those maps, like how, so there was. I feel like the, the maps in pre colonial times would not be they would not be red or green. There would just be maybe a question Mark, right? As opposed to is that. How would you characterize if you were to, to oversee the I mean, I guess, to, to degener- is the, the Eva Lucien of these maps, and these are obviously done from the perspective of largely of the west. What, what would that either Lucien mean what it looked like both literally? But also, what was the, the subtext behind that? Yeah. To, to discuss subtext, they're important to point out that the mapping of the world, which I talk about central in this is not simply about picking the world around us is a way of rating or place in the world leaving out certain things emphasizing others telling story about our place where we are in that in that world. It's also way of justifying certain kinds of interventions in that world. And we see that going back all the way to the diva times. What I look in the book is the history of western thing, some extent. Not. So the world's in medieval Christendom that situated Jerusalem at the centers and far away on the margins. So this monster figures, adorning the edges of the known world the way the blank spaces referring to that were imagined inhabited by strange monstrous, creatures habe dragons, that's old phrase. We often hear from the students say that, but they had all these beastly traces as written into the margins that the sister into colonial times. We see how in the early colonial periods. Those blank spaces become spaces to conquer spaces to understand spaces to go out and define and Rina. It's for. Ironic that in the high colonial-era with he not. So the British empire for instance, we're all the red zone indicates those of colonial control. Those were the part of empire. Empire painted itself. Red George always said, well today, the red zone on our map indicate danger than lack of control and the indicate I think, retreat, as a retreat in selective with roller western pose away from parts of the world, whether they have long sought tricks out their dominance. Tell us what about the, the Timbuktu syndrome, because much of what you're talking about, at least in the context of when we. And I guess. In africa. Anyways is around. Molly. Yes, I spent some time in Mali for research for this book where in a conflict ongoing the is and sadly violence. It's spreading across the country in across the whole. West African reading to neighboring countries as well. Company that started in twenty twelve with a separatist uprising in the discipline, also the country around the town of team book to of course, it's so well known pizza me of remoteness in the western imagination. One of those blank spaces on the maps, that's the nineteenth century European explorers out to, to visit and map, and eventually colonialism to come. So we see in this part of the world insecurity danger threats various kinds mapped out to different kinds of interventions. We have counter-terror intervention the border security operations peacekeeping mission, so. And why I'm sorry. Can you can you just for the sake of, of our audience, those types of interventions? Can you just flush them out just a little bit so that people have an understanding of, of what typically? Had been. What those interventions took form because they're not simply they're not simply military and they're all not. I guess I mean arguably, but they're all they're not necessarily imperialistic, although for the lar- to a large extent, I guess, maybe they are, but we just outlined those for us. On the one hand. The Bush era, we've seen the war on terror extend that into HARA HARA in Africa counter-terror initiative starting already around the time of the Iraqi invasion. That's, that's an old thing getting on for a long time. And seems that time the early two thousands on the merger pretty relation of GED groups and other malicious. And. Sojourns groups in the region. That's one part of the story. We then have the friends former colonial power in the region coming in its own counter-terror mission in this part of the overlaps as well, quite uneasily can say we concerns about migration. Even when this counter emissions motivated officially in France is such be about controlling dangerous. All types of smuggling taking place is partly to do with stabilizing this part of the world and show that migrants displaced people to move on words. Some extent we then have a border security. And this was I wrote about in my first book more and more European Union funding different European states. Investing this part of the rose sending troops to some extent, but also police forces into the region. A lot of money into the coffers government often, we're little democratic oversight and directly funding things like border posed vehicles. Also tra- security equipment in congress of Molly, neighboring easier that risking reenact Galatian of the problem, if the security operations restates. Just keeps on being strengthened with Hugh democratic controls. Besides a union peacekeeping mission, which Kelly has benevolent is touch. But that's seen in huge trouble in this part of the world record talent is taken mainly by African troops are out of patrolling the front lines, the discipline of the country, very little projections, and mission of uncertain and facing increasing attacks Budgie groups very, I'm stable, part of the world right now, all sorts of security, operations converging, and very uneasy weigh. And that's partly what I get when I talk about this team to senior in this part of the world. Way into eating that's concerned with controlling various kinds of transnational danger in far flung remote places of globe, but often apprenticed not actually fully entering these operating in them at a remove for the remote controls from the inside roles of bunkers and headquarters via drones and proxy forces and so on. So in this part of the release not quite working out. Well, all right. So the, the what year. What you're describing to us. Is this notion of a it's sort of a and we're seeing actually I mean you can draw maybe a more of a straight line arguably with what Donald Trump purportedly was trying to get out of Mexico, which is to stop immigrants coming, not, not necessarily from across the Mexican American border, but the Mexican Guatemalan border and to stop the flow of immigrants in basically delivered stuff that was happening internally there, and I want to turn our focus to that more specifically in a moment. But this, this syndrome, you're describing is a, a fear that's on the margins on some level. But in some way, our interventions are done in a more. Are done in such a remote way that it makes these things more marginal, and also more dangerous. Summer of it. Yeah. It's a bit of an echo the Vietnam syndrome. If we if we'll bring that term in as well. The idea that the United States when I risk, it's all live in, in military escapades abroad, off to the large fatalities state in Vietnam. And we can't see an echo that today. That's partly why talk about syndrome in that. We'd seen reluctance political reluctance risk of and put large numbers boots on the ground to put in place, a large-scale military civilian mission in these far flung parts of the world. Instead, the idea that we are now using these new capabilities to intervene, remotely technologies would Rhone surveillance, but also through collaborations with partner regimes partner states as seem in the case of migration, Mexican Central America and seeing the case of both migration and counter-terror in a hell in the Sahara, this is an all technic- those that are already. Colonial times I should say and it's not quite working out rather seeing often. Uncontrolled I'm checked resources spreading into often very unaccountable regimes from escalating, the problem over the long term this lesson less control, what's happening on the ground and the powerful intervene in their headquarters. Military headquarters police headquarters in the west rim bunk is in the scene of a very limited view was going on the separation that role that distancing things should concern us. I understand the dynamic, you're describing, which is, you know, we're trying to intervene, but we're on some level, it's sort of like a one-size-fits-all. It's not done as a as a sort of an experience. That is. That is shaped by an understanding of what's actually happening there by interacting with people. But I'm unclear as to, like, what is what is it that we're doing? I mean what is the central problem is at the intervention is the mode of intervention? Is it that, that you're suggesting here, or is it that we have done things that have created problems on the margins because it's also possible for in, and I'm not sure, you know, like of the, the perspective on how this is problematic, because there have been those. Back in the early nineties in this country. The Neo cons the project for new American century. Proposed to a large extent a lot of what we're seeing. Now, it didn't necessarily work out in the way that they thought it would that it would create this sort of like American hyperpower Gemini, by unchallenged Gemini, because, you know, in envisioning a series of low level conflicts all around the world that were low level enough that kept people busy. We're, you know. It created some busy work for people in terms of, but it never nobody ever. Amassed power to challenge the United States. I don't know that second part actually worked out from the perspective of those people. But certainly the first part seems to be there, right? I mean if you pour enough guns, you start selling guns, and you're willing to sort of, like, you know, drop with drones or, you know, packets of money or whatever you can create some instability, and you know, still control it. You know, have a certain amount of controlled chaos. If control K is good for it, and I do go back in the book, actually, to the post, Cold War moment, when the Neo cons came out in full force, and said, we need to go abroad, in search for months to destroy way what we've seen since us time for a post Cold War. Enemy to take place the soda. Fo has come to pause say, and we've seen this active conjuring monsters on the margins are mapping away. That's a certain kind of project too. So I think part of the problems come back to what you're saying with the way in which western post intervene in these parts of the world for a long time and are fundamentally in briquets that in the problems in the dangers and the challenges seeing here through us. You say arm say into conflict with that now in the case of Yemen for, or through, for instance, kind of remote intervention, we so by NATO in, in Libya posting Qaddafi with no plan for you often mouth, which in turn led the homeless collation of series of events, not just in Libya, self and Gulf K or some factionalism, but also cross. The whole Hel Sahara about of states, which along been patriots, sort of dependent on the patron of Qaddafi patronage of Qaddafi. To Oreg Amaleans from, from the nose. Molly had been in Libya coming, south into Mali setting the spark for the rebellion that lets the conflict in Mali. And so when I was out there in Mali, speaking to people to the military is in this country, they would point the finger directly at the west and saying that should you replacing this problem? And that comes the other side of the equation, which said inventions that are them put in place have not tended to improve things rather. They're imposing the distance that benefited some extent. External powers. It keeps the problem out of sight outta mind for time. It's pushes the problems and risks. Elsewhere dumps message in the global borderlands the blank spaces far away from our shows, but the same time instability keeps growing, and we see the constant risk of blow back of larger risks coming back to hit. The fortified borders, the west nothing. We saw that in twenty fifteen the so called refugee crisis, for instance, and some extent in the, the K of spreading across messiah radian do, what extent is the creation of the of the sort of, like marginal boogeyman, if you will. And you know, and, and both both imaginary and real, we've either created them out of whole cloth or we've created them by destabilizing things, and or we've created certain problems, like I'm thinking in terms of US intervention in central and Latin America over the past, I don't know, six seven decades, which has created instability, which has, you know, in, in large part added to the desire for people to migrate. Out of those countries then in into the US. And then, of course, there, demonized for domestic political purposes of, of specific. Party or president. But I mean to, to what extent is this also being used as a way of sort of anticipating future problems? Like we're also you know, maybe not so coincidentally. We're seeing these this instability in places, which largely are also going to be implicated and are implicated now with climate change, and it's almost as if like well, we might as well. Get this party started now and start to build the walls because, you know, summer is coming, I guess. And, and we should build the walls, now and the way that we get the walls built is by creating maybe Jiting up a fear, because frankly there's going to be a an even greater crisis down the road. To just to start off their Russia. Just clarify that I'm not saying that you simply case of creating our own monsters, certainly many other actors with responsibility here in the next. Local actress in some of these countries have a stake in the game includes, of course, the insurgent groups themselves, and so on criminal networks who all have their own violent means an objective for for doing what they do. Let's also remember that is a complex mix of factors Sony hit, but we're often these future projection of doom style. We saw all ready in the ninety nine has tended to, you know, way make things worse in the short run setting up for a bigger a bigger problem in future. I think just take the example of wall in, for instance, when I was the most around western borders, both in the United States in Europe, in the nineteen nineties, the pro migration taking quite different ships. It was not nearly as from magic, if what we then start to see remember speaking to European border. Gall's reflected on his era and said, look until the role was up. In, in, in, in Spain people just came walking across subtly. We had this situation where now a large number of people just run it all, all at once having to be fought back by border guards, since really chaotic scenes invoking emergency. And we saw similar thing at the US Mexico border Comey Cuza runs at the same time. So that's suddenly we had a crisis and the crisis impart created by the very old, there was supposed to stop the future crisis from happening. And I think it's a risk with that sort of doomsday thinking, actually helping to create a to the coming into play. When we talk about climate related migration in academia, we have a much more complex perspective on, how climate change is going to impact on future population movements. It's not necessarily the case you're gonna see millions upon millions of people setting out on long journeys towards the west. The evidence is more complex and that, but I think it's a big risk. That is get simplified and turned again into a story of encroaching, dangerous only to be the wall against that. In fact, then lead to a worsening of the problem. Do you think from a certain extent? I mean, that, that may be part of what is driving this policy. You know, broadly to the extent that there's a policy or these policies that are leading to this sort of dynamic now. Shortsightedness to then you hinted at in terms of the domestic politics, here is quite easy to rally the vote, if you can reassure some part of the electorate she going to build that wall. What have we see that in Europe as well, the most blatant example, being perhaps, the case of Hungary were posters put up? To deal with with migration. What Magnus couldn't couldn't do the contract? But they were all Hungarian which meant any migrants, refugees in the country could not read these posters, Kalia, message meant for domestic Orden's. Similarly walls since patrol that kind of measure the principle purpose of those tends to be to send a domestic political signal rather than halting migration. Absolute fact evidence suggests the United States Mexico ks. That's the huge investments in border security antennas have led to larger undocumented population in London. United States as people have stayed on over the long term instead of circulating back in traffic of originally. Yes, because they know that they can come back in for seasonal work. And then go back go back home easily. They don't feel the same pressure. I'm fact there's the theory right now is that the reason why we are seeing greater numbers of, of. Of refugee seekers right now is because there is a sense that the doors is starting to shut totally and people need to get there now. So what, what, what is the? What is is there a specific phenomenon that's happening around the world that there seems to be a trend in this way? Or is it just that well, one leader looks and sees what another leaders doing and seeing that it may be successful there or is there a sentiment or, or does, you know, is this, a contagion? Talk about it in the sense in the book as a form of contagion, when we seeing these ramping up of fair and threat scenarios an emergency is around borders often bowling quite small numbers. We recall most immigrants in the United States. Don't enter. Not the ones who are now being sort of broadcast on television as major entry similar in, in, in the European case overland migrants Europe. Subtly. If you take the euro twenty fifty out to the equation, or, or relatively small minority of overall migration, but we seeing here again and again, this ramping up emergency rhetoric. That's, that's very easily spreads through social media traditional media, and that's certain politicians as adept at using sometimes coughing one from the other from one context to the other. But I think we need to look in this puddle doing the book look at both political gains to be had from this and economic logic on the lying on the one hand, there are clear, shortsighted political gains from, from engaging, this sort of emergency politics rather than taking the longer view in a sort of dumping down the rhetoric and trying to find more humane sustainable way of. Approaching these large game structural phenomena such just migration, violence, displacements, and so on, but they're also economic gains and their gains in terms of how as a said core western powers intervened may be able to sue the reparations. Maybe maybe they are creating a larger problem in the long run. But in the short run, they can push the problem somewhere, they can contain it in Boorda regions from the other side of this divide in that sense, quite an efficient way for very cynical shortsighted of dealing with through a politics of risk, and fear. And we also see a lot of economic interests coming into that, both on the side of the defense contractors providing equipment, the border and security and uses military's, who are engaging in these, these fights as well on the other side of the boat or the partner genes see higher and high stakes in this and in fact. Time and again can ramp up the rhetoric around emergencies and faith to ask for more favors as from the western funders of the operations and we've seen that across Africa in recent migration, for instance is the. I guess, lastly is the is the is the solution to this. Is it a question of just simply there has to be a different political will? Because it seems like you know, we've certainly had eras where the execution of, of policies, which would dampen the, the danger to the extent that it's real or that would I mean it's we we've we've had policies in the past, right? Or they're or have we, I guess, isn't just a question of political will. Is it a question? I mean, how does this because it feels like we're in sort of a feedback loop to certain extent. And so how do how do we what, what is it that takes us out of that feedback loop? It's a bit, what I describe in the book is a negative spiral where we keep escalating emergency, no sense, a sense of fair since threatening site keeps worsening situation, pulling in more and more actress into this way of seeing the world based around security endangered. So certainly, I think part of what we need to do to go back into history and sees a pretty recent moments when these phase are being mapped onto the world in this particular way. Certainly when it comes to my Gration the postwar as in the United States on Europe so scale legal circle migration, labor program. We're not perfect, but it was certainly better, the kind of violent dangerous routes and since emergency, not the borders ever since legal pathway started closing replaced by sensors and various similarly, the collaboration with neighboring states, whereas the case of Mexico. Echo Central America around human migration and trade. Whether it's a case of Europe and Africa is now increasingly focused containing migration at any cost providing funding for of an onset security outfits and and and, and regimes that can be framing completely different way again. Not so many years ago, we saw more positive narrative around modernization development economic opportunity that I wasn't perfect. But it can certainly be revived still there, some extent, but it certainly gets back and get the help around and perhaps be retuned for a new era for this to happen. I think part of what needs to go on a different narrative, or different political narrative, and then away a remapping of are over world away from these divided maps that we see we're projecting all the face dangerous outside of our territory. Instead, trying to few more of a responsibility. Itchy for fundamentally structural systemic challenges. These place bound people bound threats or some how far away, not below into we are fundamental implicated in finding a solution to questions of you. Minimum ability, displacement, violence and conflicts. And part of that is to be finding another narrative positive narrative for these collaborations with poor countries in crisis hits parts of the world no-go world, how fear is rejoining are maps, and infecting politics Reuben Anderson, thanks so much for your time today. We'll put the book linked to the book at majority dot FM again. Thanks for your time. Thank you so much. All right. Folks. There you have it. Take quick break headed to the fun, half of the program wherein. We will have fun have. Have. Nancy pelosi. At the Pete Peterson foundation today. Super phone saying, those words makes me nauseous. She's always been a big Pete Peterson fan. But the idea. That you would go and promote deficit hawk ary. At this time really anytime. But at this time in particular is. Shocking political malpractice, even if you. I don't know even if you really thought like your entire objective in government was to close the deficit. It's still would be just the dumbest thing in the world to do right now. dR about rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. It's not it's worse than that. It is not rearranging the deck chairs because at least you'd be rearranging the deckchairs this is literally like. Blowing another hole in the Titanic. P buddha. Judge was on disa- mirrow, Showtime show. And he talked about that thing, and it wasn't a good interviews, kind of embarrassing for everybody. But he is talking about that thing about where you can say certain things to certain audiences. But then eventually gets around to everybody. Right. And policy things like oh, I'm with men Raji at the Pearson foundation, people that know that this deficits of his BS won't ever. Find out what I'm saying. You know, I don't think so I don't think frankly, I think that's part of the problem. Like I just don't I? I, I think that she thinks that she doesn't think that there are people who would have that much of a problem with it. I well, we'll get into it in a moment 'cause it so nuts heap hairs as great man. What the hell, you know, that Susan Collins base. Well, no, it's, it's distorted tape drunk, Nancy Pelosi. Which is which is in college. We're gonna take quick break headed to the fun half. Just a reminder, your support makes this show possible. You can become a member. Join the majority report dot com. Also, just coffee dot co op Fairtrade coffee, tea or chocolate use the coupon code majority. Get ten juicy percent off your coffee, tea or chocolate, I dunno. Okay. I said, the same thing every day, I've said, oh, same thing innovation is what show what would number show? Two thousand twenty do, even Mark are two thousand show. No, we blew past, then, like somebody reminded us like. Like, we're not sentimental. When we get to the ten thousand show. Oh, okay. You know, it's amazing by the ten thousand, so I feel like a many like China will have like a naval presence, like across the Caribbean. And somehow Nancy Pelosi will still be in charge of the Democrats in congress. That we one hundred right. Did if we did two thousand shows in the course of its been nine. Yeah. About eight and a half years. So to get ten thousand five four forty years total, so thirty years from now on no, no. I'll still be eighty. I'll be Nancy. Pelosi's, h I will literally be her eight Nancy Pelosi was wrong. Give that to say at hunt. I was thirty day that we should cut. So impression bits are going to be so convoluted by that when you start when you start adding timelines. Jesus christ. I called on the teleport line. This. The porters really bad. Do you keep referencing this thing from four years ago? Some new material. This show will be totally incomprehensible to anyone who's been listening for less than fifty years. Right, exactly part of the fifty year. I was like. Brent? How how easily you could lose touch. If you're Nancy Pelosi, whereas saying, like because so much of your political, when I think it's true with everything too large, for most people. Not all people. So much of your knowledge base that you operate on are formed in, you know, formative years for that for her politically probably happened in, you know Ryan Grim talking about this yesterday. You know, thirty forty years ago and. She still operating under those same assumptions and whatnot. And I was trying to use an analogy was like Matt understands that, I like, you know, nineties music the kinda music and find like you, can you can extrapolate that to music that exists today. But I'm like, when I'm eighty we have somebody's Matt's age. It's going to be sitting at the board is going to have no idea the about that music Pulitzer talks about d day, like I talk about the seventy two and ten Chicago Bulls. Right. I mean it's it's a little bit way off. It's also really where you draw the analogy like you're hitch to shit. It is weird to sort of, like assess. Condition right now. And I look at like my daughter, and I think that like. I can't remember like the distance between her and Kurt Cobain. My daughter is like twice as large as it was for me at her age between me and the Beatles. And I'm like, what? Because the Beatles seem like forever ago when I was fourteen and the idea that Kirk cobaine is twice the distance from my daughter at age fourteen then the Beatles were for me at age. Fourteen is pretty stunning time. I mean even even for like us like I don't you were like an adult when he committed suicide. Yeah, it's wild. You know there are people being born today, who are younger that anyone ever before. Yes. Dude. Thank you out. It's like why does he would go very cool. Paid is. I was I was reading an actuary. You'll report I was getting really high. I was. I was. When I was when I was ten foof fighters won't even be remembered. But when I was, when I was ten the distance between World War Two. And was thirty years earlier and almost doubled that time since, like I can tell you World War, Two seemed like a long time ago when I was ten and Iran-Contra. Yeah, exactly. All right. I hope for generations. I gotta say, there are a lot more. I mean, they scare me a little bit in some ways, they're like, feral, children of the internet, but they are really in a marks, and I think they might save us hope springs eternal. Speaking of generation Z tonight's Tuesday. What's up, Michael? Wow. Because you're contemplating your mortality that you were. So I'm tired, okay? I get it go go just drift off. Tonight before the main show were doing livestream Kalinski, and we're gonna be talking about some of the new this this progressive economic. Pledged Kyle also has requested he would like to do a little bit of Dave Rueben dunking with me, which is seems to be a thing that people like to get it on. And then we're going to debate a little bit of what is the difference between a socialist internationalism versus left-wing isolationism. And we're not gonna make that about particular we're gonna try to get out of the granular, not of the candidates, bickering and actually see if there is like a philosophical and positional difference there, that's useful to think about then in the main show. Glenn Greenwald, come on about this massive massive lava jot those story and then Bosch Carson Kara and Ben Burgess are both gonna mean studio. And we're gonna talk about the German SDP the history of socialism, and what models might actually be relevant to the United States in two thousand nineteen for greater freedom and democracy in our.

1963 - Midterm Elections Preview w/ MR Crew

"You are listening to a free Berge of majority report with Sam cedar to support this show and get another fifty minutes daily program. Goodridge already dot S M, please. Jaro D, rob. Sam cedar. It is Monday, November fifth two thousand eighteen my name is Sam cedar. This is the five time award winning majority report. Broadcasting live steps from the industrially ravage go on canal in the heartland of America. Downtown Brooklyn USA. On the program today. We are less than twenty four hours away from the final day of voting for the mid term elections. And early voting has broken records across the country. But doesn't mean anything. Meanwhile, House Republicans are running from Trump. But does that mean anything? Lastly Trump's full on racist gambit will provide us a brief moment of clarity at the end of this week. We will get a sense of adjust where this country is at and meanwhile, Georgia secretary of state at camp pulling out all the banana Republican stops. While a federal judge in Texas who heard the ACA case, which could essentially destroy the protections that we have against pre existing conditions and recision and lifetime caps. Is he sitting on his verdict until after the election? Today, marks US Iran sake shins kicking in as the EU looks for a work around. And shooter in Tallahassee who killed two women was a YouTube racist in-cell youtuber. Conservatives scammed for one hundred fifty thousand dollars. Well, not quite but. Certainly worth a smile, and the supreme court to hear a case that could very well. Newt separation of church and state. And lastly lawbreaking corporations getting a billions dollars worth of fines punted by the Trump administration. All this and more on today's program, ladies and gentlemen. So forgive us for the late start. We have some tech technical difficulties today, and but we will get through it. I was at a wedding over the weekend. And. Not a particularly liberal crew of folks. But. Everybody seemed to be I just don't remember more people being more invested in an election than these midterms. A lot of people telling me they were. Headed to well, really across the country to get out and a door knock. So I found that very encouraging. I just don't meet that many people who. You just don't I mean in the course of years doing this. I just have never seen so many people who are this active hard to know, whether it's going to make a difference. And it's just it's very difficult to anticipate. We know what? The polls say we see some tightening in the generic ballot depending on which poll, but I think like the aggregate of all those somewhere around seven percent. We have said quite often that there was a sense that you need 'bout nine percent to overcome a lot of the gerrymandering in many of these districts across the country. But again predicting who is going to be in the electorate is the biggest challenge for pollsters and. In a Friday night. I was on Hayes program again in Charlie cook was on beforehand. He was saying that Republican consultants seem worried, and he made the point that look, you know, the national polls were accurate in two thousand sixteen. It's just that. There were a couple of state. Polls were inaccurate. Well, I mean, really we don't even have a national election. This time around. So these polls are. Smaller in many cases, when you're doing a smaller district now, theoretically, you should be able to get it. Right. But there's less resources put into those type of things. So we just don't know is the bottom line what we do know. Is that more than thirty four million people have already cast their ballots early or by app absentee that is a fifty percent increase over the total number of votes early votes cast in the twenty fourteen midterm elections. So. When more than fifty percent increase. I imagined still this piece is from a day or so ago, and I imagine numbers are still coming in. And of course, there's early voting today in some places. Turn out is up amongst all age cohorts amongst all racial groups, and educational categories older voters still make up a disproportionately large segment of the electorate, but that's because they started with a larger portion of the electorate in terms of of engaging. However, the delta the difference between the sort of the rate of increase in early voting amongst young people. I as old people is encouraging. If you believe that young people who are coming out early are going to vote for Democrats. Now, there's reason to believe that. But. We'll say among voters aids. Eighteen to twenty nine turnout is up in thirty nine of forty one states for which data is available for voters. Thirty to thirty nine turn-up is up in all forty one states where data is available. So it appears that the two thousand eighteen electorate will be slightly younger or I should say significantly younger and more diverse than the electorate that voted for years ago. There's reason to believe that that is encouraging for people who want more democratic members of congress. In texas. There is data that shows that more than four hundred and twenty thousand people have voted this year for the first time. That's four times higher than the number of first time voters who cast about in two thousand fourteen. That's pretty stunning. I mean, regardless of who those people are that's pretty stunning that you have. Four times the amount of first time voters in a midterm election. Voters between the ages of eighteen thirty nine made up a little less than a quarter of the total Texas early vote for years ago. Those voters made up just thirteen percent of the electorate. Now. The rate. It's wanna be clear on what we're saying here. So in two thousand fourteen. They were just thirteen percent of the entire electorate. Presumably, I mean, we don't know where they're early voting was. So we can't make that apples to apples comparison. But at least in the context of early voting they have a higher percentage of voting. This is the thing you gotta ask yourself that. We don't know yet is are we seeing are do these early voters constitute people who wouldn't otherwise have voted or are they simply cannibalizing what the turn out will be on Tuesday. We don't know we won't know until Wednesday. But in Arizona young voters have grown to seventeen percent of the electorate up from ten percent in two thousand fourteen. The number of Hispanic voters casting early battle. It's doubled. While the share the electric that is white is down three point five percentage points, the number of infrequent new voters who cast ballots this year, both more than double. So the these are these are these are good. If you're gonna ask for numbers for early voting numbers. These are the numbers you'd want to look at this is what you want. They don't necessarily mean anything. But. They're an absence of bad news. Which is, you know, arguably good news in Georgia voters between the ages of eighteen and thirty nine account for more than twenty one percent of the early vote. That's almost up tenth percentage points from two thousand fourteen. Young voters in Nevada, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin have also grown dramatically as a share of the electric and why this is important. It's I'll let me read down. What NBC news? Democrats have a seven point advantage over Republicans, the final national NBC news, Wall Street Journal poll. So for those people who want a democratic controlled congress. Not surprising ninety four percent of Democrats do. Three percent of Democrats want a Republican controlled congress. You know knows African-Americans eighty four percent want a democratically controlled congress. Eight percent want a Republican controlled congress. That's it. The banks that right? No can hear them. I guess it's not blacks. It it's blows it or whatever. I don't know Latinos fifty seven percent. To twenty nine percent. Eighteen to thirty four year olds fifty seven percent to thirty four percent. So you get a big chunk of people. Just don't know. Why would the college degree fifty six percent versus thirty seven percent women? Fifty five percent to thirty seven percent. That's pretty substantial gender gap. Seniors fifty four percent to forty percent want a democratically controlled congress overall all likely voters, and that's the difficulty that you have is that fifty percent versus forty-three percent. We don't all likely voters. We just don't know. Whites. Forty four percent want a democratically controlled congress in fifty percent want a Republican controlled congress. The Republican party is a party that practices identity. Politics. Ninety five percent of their support comes from white people gift does white guys get them, get them. There is. The Democratic Party, obviously. Has it? Far more diverse base of of support. White people with no college degree sixty percent. It's the highest cohort want. Republicans to win thirty six percent want. The Democrats independence. Thirty five percent want a democratic controlled congress Twenty-three percent want a Republican controlled congress and ninety one percent of Republicans. So those numbers are relevant insofar as if you project those numbers, and you can't really do this. You can do it to give you a semblance. But if you project those breakdowns upon the data that we do know about who have voted early then that looks good for Democrats. But I wanna remind you in two thousand sixteen early voting suggested democratic strength and enthusiasm in Florida. Do you? Remember there was some like report like a week before in Florida. It was like this is ninety eight percent of this is gonna be out landslide in Florida, and it turned out not to be a. Landslide for Hillary Clinton to work out that no. Boy saw through Zaza Florida North Carolina in Nevada in the end, it Clinton only carried Nevada. So this is my way of saying. Everything I've been saying has been somewhat masked Batori in for that. I apologize. But it's important. You know, look, it's these are these are going to be important points going forward at the very least, this is what you can be sure of the work that has gone in to get people to the polls early has paid off. In getting people to the polls early to what extent that's going to mean in terms of congress. We don't know yet. Folks deal. Love the thrill of an escape room. Looking for clues and solving puzzles? Well, now, you can bring the mystery home with hunter killer, rob, I think he might like this hunter killer is a monthly subscription where you become a detective immersed in a murder mystery. Each month of fictional serial killer will send you cryptic clues objects in letters that you can actually use to solve the crime in real time. It's so interactive that feels real. You can play it solo on a on a date on game night with friends or you can join their online community work with other people who at the same point in that story as you are. I've started this with Mylan. How's it going? She seems to be pretty excited about it. Cool waiting for clues. Anything if I do anything if I can just get her off her phone on Instagram. How's it going to be when you said dad killed so rich? That's right. Well, I can't tell her that. Okay. But right now, just for our listeners, you can go to hunter killer dot com slash majority for ten percent off your first box. They only accept two hundred members per day so hard to take advantages. Offer hunter killer dot com slash majority. For ten percent off your first box hunter, killer dot com slash majority. Check it out, folks. All right. Let's one of the things that I think this this election is going to. I mean, we're going to have a big problem this, and I think we knew this in after twenty sixteen but we're going to have a big problem with. Increasingly. A ill informed public. Right. And there's there's two dynamics that that are clearly in effect during this mid-term one is Donald Trump is trying to motivate his base in. It does seem to be working. To come out and vote by scaring them with notions. Of a caravan of who knows how many hundreds it could be people by the time. They get to the the border, but they are now on foot over a month away on traveling on foot. There are now fifty two hundred US military personnel with helicopters and barbed wire. That are I guess ostensibly waiting for them spending hundreds of millions of dollars it's anticipated. This is going this little kabuki theatre is going to cost should've me have the parade. There you go you let them have the parade. But. And I'm telling you this right now. You're not going to hear much about this after Tuesday because it's just not going to have the salience. Maybe at one point Trump will announce like we scared him off. We scared him off. So bring in the military home. One of the dynamics is going to be. What it tells us about this country in terms of their motivation based upon their disdained for Brown people. The other thing is is have Republican candidates successfully run from the fact that the Republican party wants to destroy the good stuff in the Affordable Care Act patient protection. Bill. I have said many times the best parts of the ACA PPI were the patient protection. Initiatives. That is pre existing conditions. You cannot be denied insurance, and you cannot be overcharged for insurance as a way of denying it. You cannot have lifetime caps. You can't have yearly caps. You can't have recision. In other words, you have health insurance is taken away when you need it. You're under twenty six you can be on your parents programs. There are certain ten essential benefits that health insurance must provide. To actually constitute insurance that's being undercut by the garbage that Trump is giving waivers for. But nevertheless. And like I said there is a. Republican led lawsuit against the US government, which the DOJ has argued in favor of as opposed to defending against that would do way with all this. In the meantime, you have Republican congress people all of whom voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and get rid of those things. And now they're trying to pretend that they didn't. In states. Republican controlled states. You had Republican leadership the nine the expansion of Medicaid. Remember the first year out that expansion of Medicaid is zero dollars. It costs the states down the road. It can cost up to ten percent of the cost goes to the states. Here is a clip of a debate. This happened last night or this weekend. Thursday or Friday of last week in Ohio's twelfth district. Danny O'Connor is the democrat running Troy balder Sohn is the Republican is Balderstone a sitting. He's not a sitting congressman Izzy. And but listen to Danny O'Connor. I have a feeling this might be a district that is. Not flipped but a one where we have resignation, but here here it is the also oppose Medicaid expansion because one in every three people in muskegon county are on Medicaid. So that means if you're watching at home tonight, look to your right and look to your left. Troy Balderstone doesn't want one of you to have healthcare. You need that healthcare. We need that health care to ensure that we can fight back against opioids folks with breast cancer need that healthcare. So that they can live to see their grandkids people who work hard who pay their taxes who do everything right need to have healthcare. So that they can live a happy, healthy and safe life. But when you folks like Troy Alderson who wanna take that healthcare way. You can't do that. When I'm in congress. I'll fight for you. I'll fight to make sure that your pre existing conditions are covered a fight to safeguard Medicaid expansion because I know what it means to people here in zanesville, Danny when we did the state budget, and we look at everything and I served on the finance committee when we did this. Over fifty percent of our state budget is Medicaid. So what do we do we go in? And we look at it. There are other ways there's reform methods in the state legislature. We have reformed Medicaid. We have looked at it. We've addressed issues we have saved two hundred million dollars in the last three as working on Medicaid and making cost welcome. That's how much a life is worth from someone. You can you can still provide health care. This is not about taking the people in muskegon. I want health healthcare for everybody five one healthcare for everybody. I want access government for working people. And and we can do it. Why do you want to throw people off their health not going to throw them off the healthcare just said you oppose Medicaid expansion? That's not that is not throwing him off their healthcare have Medicaid where the go that is not throwing them off their healthcare one. We have we have fairly. We have fairly qualified health centers in this community or counties. Don't even have doctors. The Don elder are this tonight. The accessibility. And your old Senate district has Dr all you gotta do is going and you'll find. Okay. Let's move on it. So this did the exactly now he is the sitting Representative in Ohio's twelve because to berry resigned, and he he was elected. I think just this in in this August just to fill in the special election to fill his seat. But he was a a former Troy Balderstone was former state rep. And the bottom line is. If you're going to throw people off their, Medicaid, and you don't have a plan to provide them with some other type of health insurance. I don't know where you're going to get the money from if it's not this federal program that's going to come in and pay for it. But they have had to adopt this position. And now they find themselves in this rather unenviable position where they thought for seven years as the Republicans were voting to crash of the ACA. And it was just a sort of a mantra. And now it's clear that they have no other plan. They're the only thing they can say is generically speaking. I don't want people to lose their healthcare. But in terms of everything I'm proposing. It's for people to lose their health care. So they have a bit of a problem and. The best. They can do is just sort of smile and look. Smell him sweating and these two apparently these two ran against each other in August, and that special election, and apparently O'Connor lost by something like fifteen hundred votes out of two hundred thousand votes. So. Through just wanted to take the last three seconds. So this again. Yeah, let's just do that. Because it's. And I don't even know in August. If this this exchange had the the resonance it has now because we're seeing this across the country where. You know in in Arizona, for instance, where the Republicans just like can't, you know, literally lying about the votes that she took and just hoping that the people here like the reporters say, but but you took that vote and then winding to Sean Hannity about it right kicking my ass for it. Exactly. And we can do why do you want to throw people off their health? I'm not gonna throw them off the healthcare just said you oppose Medicaid expansion. That's not the way that is not throwing him off their healthcare. So they don't have Medicaid where the go that is not throwing them off their healthcare one. We have we are fairly. We have fairly qualified health centers in this community or counties. Don't even have doctors. Danny. There are some. Are watching this tonight. The accessibility. In your old Senate district has a doctor all you gotta do is go on Google and you'll find the now. Okay. Let's move on. Unless you have something to add congressman Bono. I have nothing to add. Okay. There you go. Wow. He even got the disappointed principle treatment from the moderator. Right. That's brutal. Comical you got anything else? You'd like that. You've been totally humiliated. You're in a sweat now your lies or so transparent and embarrassing or even the liberal shows that will mock you later for this will be uncomfortable watching you or any attempt you'd like to make it a recovery here. I'm assuming no because that was pathetic next. Dammit. The cutback to the moderator seemed like something out of Vic burger, actually, oh definitely that was real life. Maybe the maybe the camera guy watches Vic burger videos. But that is that's the dynamic that we're seeing across the country. I mean, there are the other dynamic is that you have like some candidates who are literally saying the Republicans saying like that the democrat is more aligned with Trump than they are. But that is the dynamic that's happening for the most part Democrats are leaning on healthcare as a major talking point and good. That's what they should have been doing all along. Well, I mean, that's I think that's what they've been doing in these races a lot of evidence that that's the case. Meanwhile. In georgia. And this is I think for me the two most important. Well, I shouldn't say that. But. Georgia and Florida are going to be huge. And there's another race carrot Eastman running in Nebraska. It looks like it is going to be out of reach for her. She was facing a huge amount of Republican money that came in late, and the Democrats just did not step up to help her part of that is it's so Mahanta Brassica. And so on paper, anyways, you wouldn't want to put a lot of money in another part of that. I think she's running in Nebraska nod as a center as a as a moderate, but rather as a full throated progressive. And I think there may be institutional money that doesn't feel so comfortable with that. If someone wins in Omaha with that kind of platform it. Creates pressure points all along the line. For more moderate incorporate friendly, Democrats, but. We shall see. What happens in the coming days? Meanwhile, in Georgia, Brian Kemp, who is the secretary of state. Who has been on a relentless mission to disenfranchise voters? In the waning days when the story comes out that their own secretary of state website is insecure in terms of allowing for voter data to leave leak out. This is what Kemp's job is. His response to this is by claiming that the Democrats have tried to hack it. I mean, it's really basically the what he's trying to do is. Deflect from the fact that he can't even do his job properly. So here was Stacey Abrams response. Are you concerned these racists appeals are going to work? What I'm concerned about is that his overarching architecture voter suppression of ostracisation of demeaning into humanizing people that can cause people to think that their votes don't count, which is why we've been so aggressive about telling people the best antidote to his antics is to actually turn out and engage and we've seen unprecedent voter turnout because people understand that education and jobs and access to affordable healthcare on the ballot. This year that I'm the only candidate with a comprehensive plan for how we move our state forward together. So there it is. I mean, she's just maintaining the high road and. Joe to his antics, right? That's good. This racist kid incompetent people deal with his antics by beating him. Apparently part of what she's responding to is that. There's a robo-call going out in Georgia. That. Sounds like this. This is the magical negro Oprah Winfrey. Asking you to make my fellow Negras. Stacey Abrams governor of Georgia. Then it spews nearly sixty seconds of racism, coupled with a dash of anti-semitism here is the audio of the robocall going out. In support of camp in Georgia. And you know, this is the tables been set for this type of stuff. So who knows? This is the magical Libro. Asking you to make my fellow Negras Abram the governor of Georgia years ago, the Jews who owned the American media. Awesome. Ability to trick gum white him. And it just thinking I was like them and should do read and think what I told them to I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams where others the poor man's into Mima. I see someone white women can be tripped into voting for especially the facts. And I promise everything for Abrahams. We're going to get a new car. So you get a car. Can you get a car? Can you get a car? Everybody gets a cold. And as far as the race to their rights to win the way about them said that famous in two thousand thirteen white races just have guy. Painful road to power dot com. There you go. God. Yeah. Rote power dot com. Apparently is an anti-semitic video podcasting website. So apparently, Brian Kemp has a history of falsely accusing opposing campaigns of hacks. He claimed that the Obama administration tried to hack them in two thousand sixteen and he's sort of wheeled this out and several other racists. So this Goto, and we should add no evidence provided never any evidence. Who needs evidence evidence Schmidt evidence folks seriously? Here is. This. I found a little bit disturbing. Terms of what we're seeing from Donald Trump. Here's a morning Joe now, this is not from the two thousand sixteen election. Right. This isn't from two thousand fifteen. This is from. Today. November fifth two thousand eighteen I would put this in the. The file information. We probably should have known earlier. If you were in a position to have it as a reporter. And you know, if that's what's so interesting again not talking about the economy but talking about imaginary walls and imaginary caravans is it Donald Trump forty had those volt voters locked down if you like Donald Trump because he was racially insensitive. And he said these outrageous shorty had those feel positive swing deposit. One second. There's racially insensitive. I think is soft peddling things just a little bit with Donald Trump. And. Aside from from from that. There's a lot of evidence to suggest that. Don, Trump may have had those people, but don't Trump talking about. And reaching those people drives them to the polls more, right? I mean, we see it in terms of the the rise in hate incidents in the Trump era. And we see it in the polling, frankly that the Maury talks about this. The more people are inspired to go to the polls. So that analysis is wrong. On the part of Scarborough. It's not like he had in Scarborough is going to go on to say like he could have pivoted could have pivoted and doesn't the good things that report that Republican can do. But the fact is is no, I don't think. So I think Trump has got a strategy. And this is the strategy, and you can't can't convolute it every time he's talking about fiscal discipline, or whatever B S that Scarborough was going to say is the time where he's not reminding people that there were hordes Brown people come at it to attack them to hunky don't be too on key. Exactly. It's simple. But so continue those it's the swing voters in the suburbs. At might have been persuaded. If this entire campaign had been about, hey, you know, what my taxes have been cut regulations are being cut the economy is still growing. Well, we're still in the middle of the Obama recovery. Not as big as the Obama recovery. But it still Donald Trump is not. Completely destroyed the Obama recovery, and they would think that and they'd get a lot more votes. But Donald Trump is reminded them of Charlottesville every day over the last couple of weeks in what does that do that inspires Democrats independence? Moderate Republicans suburban Republicans the vote democratic in may. But I also to say we confronted him about the birtherism with it. It's bad it's wrong. And he said in a low voice, I know, it's bad. But it works racism in his mind works. Well, one second. That's what we call in. In journalism was burying the lead. I would say in fact, they buried the lead by at least two years. I mean, when Donald Trump was talking about birtherism, my guess is it was during the presidency of Barack Obama, and you'll recall these two guys with all due respect spent a lot of time supportive of Donald Trump early on until they found out what it bad guy. He was. But I wonder if it was around the time that he said, yeah, I know, but it works. I got the feeling that that probably preceded that time. So maybe. You know, you re recall when Joe Scarborough at one point it said like he seemed like he was in on the joke. And now he doesn't. The joke being stoking racial animus, incidentally, on like dice, clay. And it was a character who was doing which people could appreciate on a certain ironic level. Right. But then he became the character. That's really went dice as material went down. I just hope the millions of people who watch our show were in on the joke is well, that's why you've gotta buy a membership to actually get all the joke. Material the Emeka nine west Hempstead next week to clear that this is ironic. I really do think that if you're a reporter, and you've had that conversation, and you feel comfortable saying it at anytime on television. You probably should have said it on television right around the time. You heard it though. But that he would have said stuff to us anymore. So if the record and want to burn I mean, that's my point is is it off the record. Well, then you probably shouldn't have said it today. And I don't know that she needed to qualify with in his mind. It works at this point in time. A pretty sure, you know, Reuven that it were it's interesting because she was disagreeing with Joe kind of the point we make Joseph this suburban Republicans are being turned up. No, that's a lot of racism. They're they're like in this stuff. I I mean, I had to check the year on that clip. Right. I mean, I think there's evidence that it's turning off some suburban Republican voters. Lebron guy. Right. But the bottom line is you don't know. I mean, like how do they not have how do they not make that part of their coverage when it was relevant. Because it was fun. Right. And it was ironic, and it was it was pain. That was Rick really rhetorical. I know exactly how they did. If they wanted to maintain access and they were willing to like, men, whatever it's not to win. He'll be great. When he wins over the LeBron guy. The who's the CNN focus group. And he's like he's racist guy voted for Trump doesn't sixteen and whoever Colorado or one of those people associate she's like. What makes you say that now kind of with a little subtext of like, dude? What where have you been? And he goes he goes call. The bronze stupid King James is clearly the smartest book. Yeah. Right. Right. Bron is pretty smart. Lastly as part of this campaign that Donald Trump is running, and, you know, it's not hard to see defined reports that Republican congress people particularly ones in trouble are upset that Donald Trump has made this election about him so much, and they can't escape this. And one of the things Trump is done is made this about the media here. He is. I mean, this is almost nonsensical in a way. But here is. And the amazing thing is I've seen reports. I think I was just reading someone's Twitter threat who went out interview people to last rally, and they were all saying similar things. Like the media has mistreating Donald Trump. They've got to treat him. They've got to give him encouragement. To be the best. He can be instead of covering him so critically. Exactly. Right. And here is Donald Trump on his way to West Virginia for rally over the weekend. That over the weekend. Or is this today over the weekend Friday? Saying that the real problem in terms of violence in this country. Is of course, because of the fake news. No, you know, what you're creating violence by your questions. You know, you created you. And also a lot of the reporters creating violence by not writing the truth. The fake news is creating violence, and you know, what the people that support Trump, and the people that support us, which is a lot of people most people many people those people know, what is story is through. And they know what is story is that I'll tell you what if the media would write correctly and right accurately head right fairly you'd have a lot less violence in the country. What kind of Hampshire? College bullshit is that you're creating violence with that question. The question is creating violence questions creating violent that question is literally that question is literally violets all played and the entire White House is a safe space. All it's missing is the hand, clap emojis. God, right. This is Steve Mnuchin, they're snapping fingers. Pretty nuts. Check my check. So Donald Trump can be out there and saying that the media is causing violence. I mean, this is about far we've gotten from the days where they would say that it was like the violent TV shows that are creating violence. Now, it's reporters asking questions. I remember back in time. And it was bad boys. Two that created violence now CNN, honestly like. On one hand, you have to ask yourself like what the like, theoretically, the the mass shooter who killed eleven people in a synagogue. Just show angry about the tone of the questions at the White House press pool. That he went out and murdered eleven people. Don't forget that. It's trump. So not only would Trump say that. But then he'd also say that the people synagogue agreed with him. They get the press was so they treated Zarrella Huckabee, so terribly we got shot. There you go. And that's what everybody's saying. You put fake news and people's mailboxes. Just look what's coming to you. All right. Well, meanwhile, would that said. Donald Trump claims that the questions that the media asked creating the violence that may not be creating violence, but I suspect that Donald Trump referring to the media as public enemy number one is going to create violence. I mean, look we already have a situation where the Maga bomber sent bombs to the New York Times. Two. To one go to the post. There was a couple of media outlets. Got in CNN got one and. If you've never seen a grown man in by grow, man. I mean, like this guy I would say minimum in his forties. Minimum. If you've never seen a grown, man. Get completely agitated by a news company. You will this will be enlightening to you. This is down in Florida at a Disentis rally and CNN is covering that rally. And then this guy nearly has an aneurysm. The important thing about is that he looks like Steve Martin. So the bet. Exactly, if the jerk part to be becomes a Republican, combat shed. Yeah. He's really lost his mind since father of the bride, y'all. But I just this. He is. I mean, he looks like he's like a manager of a retail outlet in that in that mall or something. And he is just extremely agitated about CNN because they suck. He is just not let's shoot for Matt. Like, I could understand seeing guys like that at you know, a basketball game or baseball game where you actually think in your mind, I could distract this guy's. He's taking a foul shot or I could distract this pitcher this hit it for one second. And maybe I could act up throw impact the the the outcome of the game. But if you're the CNN camera guy, and that guy is twenty five feet away. From you yelling like he's going to give himself an aneurysm that CNN sucks. The only thing you're thinking is I'm done for the day after I hand in this video. I don't have to do anything else. That's my job for the day. I got this crazy guy too. Fair. I do this in front of the national review offices. But well, that's right. That's right. You do that has anyone checked on Steve Martin lately? He's not him at our our sucks. Buckley was filed?

11. Hey Hey It's Saturday (and Cancel Culture) w/ John Patterson

"This is what shall we do about with San uh-huh hello and welcome to. What shall we do about the show that tries to improve the world's less pressing problems today? It's a different kind of episode. We're actually deep diving on an Australian television institution. The variety show. Hey Hey it's Saturday. Yes you heard that right. It was a Sharif. ooh initially ran for twenty-seven knees families including my own. What should each and every week in and year out Lawsti however musician musician? John Pattison from Brisbane Band. The greats released some videos that his connie challenge my phone feelings about high and in some ways it leads to a conversation station about cancel culture one of the talking points of twenty nine tape light last year. I can't with John to ask him all about it. John Pattison who we know from the grants. Hello going good now you're a musician In the band you've opened cafe but the thing that I want to talk about today is your latest project which involved a slight obsession and with the TV show Australian TV. Show that he's more. Hey Hey it's Saturday year. Was it well. It was a full blown obsession. I think for maybe a month and a half earlier this year. I should say too. If you've never if you listen to this podcast new numbness you've never heard of hate satellites luck to. Alice said not variety show that used to be on with. It's it was. It had like a duck running around spinning a wheel. It had an ostrich it was. It was like Manic g on the shaw like it was like. It's not particularly funny like I don't think the drugs the funny like I'd but there's an energy to that kind of goes through the whole two who hours. That's real intense and kind of like a a sense of comfort. It's like this is a this is a strategy and culture. It's what you do. Yeah it's fun you watch it way like with grandparents and your parents like like Like and because it went for like thirty five years something it was a cross so many you know generations. Have you always been a fan of height Saturday. Like what did you watch it growing up as a kid. Yeah well I I definitely should growing up as a kid I think like I think everyone had to. I'm not sure like if like if you a young in the late eighties. There wasn't anything to do on a Saturday night except for go to bed or which I had Saturday and I think I didn't really watch it with my parents are around but it was. You know it was a safe spot for a kid to be on a week again. Yeah Yeah and and as far as we understood back then and maybe a challenging that with this project it was family friendly. Viewing it was just what you did and it was such a part of Australian coach and I remember they. They brought it back for a little while on a Wednesday December. When I did that Look Tan? I think I was living in the sites but I was targeting the episode even then. I need to see what's going on that. Yeah they did two reunion episodes and then they came. Hey back for a full season that I think Austin about twenty episodes on a Wednesday night which may make I think that yeah. I think it started on the Wednesday but I think they did move it to a Saturday did I. If I'm not mistaken when it went like back to full blown. Hey Right A. K.. Am I right in. You discovered that online. There are a whole tribe of out episodes. Just lying around Ye. Cheap yet will UNU- tube. I discovered at through tiny moderns podcasts. But it's like this every episode of the Daryl somers show on Youtube. which was I guess? The late night show that pre that that came before high moving. Tonight's hey started as a kid. Saturday morning show. I think for like the first maybe ten years or something maybe even more. So Yeah He. He has every late night episode on Youtube Troupe and I started kinda like I'd come home and unwind by putting one on it because it's such a strange like you never get to see like you know you see so many clips and like best olives and stuff of old things but you don't get to experience it slick entirety so I started getting like obsessed with that I then then. I started kind of wanting to learn editing like I started watching. This guy called Vic Burger on youtube that that does these. It's really interesting Comments on political things in the states all through the editing. And like he doesn't have to talk. Its but you can hear his voice through the edit so I got into that and then I was looking for a project then I then I put it all together and then when I started realizing using that all the youtube videos we're going to dry up I found that darryl has a paid subscription to. Hey it Saturday episodes on another a website where you can pay seven dollars a month to access. The Archives of every single episode must be low. So he's got he's on streaming sevice bicycling so you can get flakes. He can go stan Dan or hey. Hey it's Saturday or every year. Yeah Yeah every single episode of Saturday which has to be has to be close to five hundred drew. I can't believe there's actually a subscription option to pay seven dollars a month to watch. Hey Hey it's Saturday. Yeah I've been in and out of the subscription a couple times D- recognise dental. This himself like is that what he's up to these days just uploading episodes from. I think I think he's he's had some help it's it's it's his company. I'm not sure like I questioned whether it's legal just with all of the music use and everything yeah it there's a Kylie minogue performance like there's no way that he's paying the royalties to all of these performance hundreds hundreds of performances would know this. Because you're in a band yourself. Did you ever play. You never got to play on Saturday right or but I've got to talk to some people who have now. How many hours of the show did you? Can you watched before you made before you made which we'll talk about in the sake but did you. Did you troll through like how many of those five hundred episodes do you think you watch like. I think I wash Shahal one. Okay but like I would. I just drop a needle in and like I probably downloaded maybe twenty of the five hundred interest and would just drop a needle yet k where there any moments. That didn't make the videos that you actually actually enjoyed that. We're good moments. I'm the shy I just found. Jackie McDonald endearing. Like like some of the some of the background characters on the sure I started to like really like Wilbur Wilde and Jackie McDonald. I think like seem like really good people like there. Yeah I think there is some like knauss nurse in the I guess that brings us to the videos. We haven't mentioned what the videos are when I watch these videos that you'd edited and of course sort of manipulated them in a way but the way that you can kind of change what the content is in the videos. What are the videos? And what were you trying to do due by making these videos so I just started finding. I guess when I started making videos it was just like weird stuff. Like like Darrell dresses addresses the The you know the little guy from treasure island as looping and sniffing the Hula Hoop and stuff so I was just finding we'd stuff but then as I got into the hey service and kind of nifty around a bit more like I said. Find some real Culturally inappropriate things. I guess stuff that I don't believe was even right or accepted at the time but maybe got through because it was live and it wasn't supposed to be sane again. Yeah and and just a bit of a mean spiritedness. Yeah I want to talk about a couple of them. One that you found and I think this long want maybe shocks me. The most is when Kamal. Who's like he's kind of a crudeness singer from the eighties? Eighties nineties he's He's massive massive. Yes and after that put like after that video or he was going straight to Cotonou coal for sold out show in New York. Oh really wow so. Can you describe kind of what happens in that video. Kamau he comes out. They kind of like try. They told him look racially. And he's not like you can tell he's kind of not really happy about it but is going along with a like it's two videos goes combined so the previous performance they chained him to a chair and Darryl in black face Kinda taunts him while he's with his own song Willie's chained to a chair the second video he starts singing like a greatest hits met Medley and someone comes and patsies face white in the the middle of it and they I mean the thing is these comments from the voice over guy these the bays the pictures that comp on screen it's like he's is being bombarded with this rice show in sensitivity and he just grits his teeth and dispersed is an I and I was like I read about it before I found that clip I was reading interviews with Kamala where he was talking about that kind of led me to the clip but he hide it and and and felt he felt like he was going into battle like he was a soldier going into a battle when appearing on the shore. So do you think now like you made a good point in that you you think that could get away with it because it was live TV and unless you're typing it at home there's no way you can watch it again. That's very different to now. Yeah but I still think like this is less than thirty years ago that these took place. It's very very recent. Yes recent enough and I end. And that's what makes me think I. I think it was acceptable. Like like like looking back like that but all of these things give permission to the audience watching to kind of think that that's okay yes of course there's another video that stands out to me when there's a Generation Chinese Australian woman who comes out and plays one of the contests. Can you explain that one to us. Yeah with errol just can't Can't get over the he just can't wrap his head around the idea that she's going to Australian accent and she's born in Australia even though she's Asian skin and he's like a you show you from here like DC. Speak another language and it's just it is discrete inge worthy eh often like when he gets to the end of it they you know they mock they marker family with a with a bad accent and so you look at that now. How how like? It's not we can't excuse the fact that these terrible even though it's in the past this can ask why you ended up making these videos and that was an obsession to begin with but then making them putting them out there. What what's your name with it or what to hype? It will do not. I'm not I like it was it was more. It was really like an art project for me to begin with so like I just did it as a hobby I guess for four-month Hof like six months ago and then I just sending them to my close friends just to share. Because you want to do the work you're doing and I I. I didn't really know what to do with them. Ages but but like felt like it would be nice to share on my personal instagram with with my audience and friends way. It wasn't in a spot where it seemed like it was going to be a takedown or something most up I I guess I guess I just kind of I guess the point of it is just to refuse to reflect on that kind of mentality which I thank did lead through into like whether bled through TV or whether it was just part of the overall culture like he did Kinda he do things like that at school. They wasn't undercurrent of that more. I think than the kind of you know they make one hundred best of clips Of High it's like why. Why ignore the you know the truth rent rounded out so I mean you talk at the stat about how you grew up loving High Yukon of that? WAS YOU UPSET UTAH. I definitely didn't love it but it was like I had to. So you just have to watch your fun memories you win. You can't win. It came back as a curiosity. Okay Right Yeah Yeah No. There's no part of me that's like just like there's no part of me that loves you went. You went shocks when you look back as an older person on those is episodes nor okay. You expected that yeah for me. It shocked me because I think when I saw I watched it through the nineties. I was born eighty seven so I watched it with innocent eyes did as a family and I never knew I knew about the in the reboot when the Harry connick junior and the black face thing happened during the the rate of faces skits like I remember being powdered and that's a K.. That shouldn't have gone through. Take a but I guess that was indication of the kind of time that the show had for many years. Yeah and I think I think it would probably be harder to find things in the early nineties. Signings the late eighties that are as brutal as the early The Early Eighty S. But I'm sure they cleaned it up a bit towards the end but I think is an undercurrent and you found is one video that you made. Where like Jackie? McDonald's kind of not harassed but kind of how you describe it. She's been taunted but I think like at the end of the video they kind of they pretty much say if you get pregnant you lose your job. Yeah Yeah and life eight. Yeah yeah after the video on on the Instagram I was like. Oh maybe we'll do some bowl I went back and I'm like icon account even touch it did you have you heard anything from Daryl or anyone locked. Do you think they know. Now I feel like I might get a letter you will. It'll be it'll be a letter with the stamp from the nineties with forty five cents. Yes because he's on the staff isn't he so look. I think the this was kind of part of a trillion culture and was reflective of the culture at the time and we're a bit more wiser now in twenty nine teen but I thought it kind of in some ways. It's looking back on the past and stuff that's been recorded and looking at it in a new way or at least it was for me because I wasn't aware of how was love the time and I think it's some wise lades discussion about cancel culture. which is such a big thing at the moment? Put an article in the shy nights. From from Leah as Mellish from CNN who says Cancel countries when basically when people say they can't swing a famous person that's essentially what they're trying to do. They want to take away the power our or the cultural capital want to diminish the significance whether it's a personal boycott or public shaming now. I'm not saying that's what you're trying to do with these videos but I think it is as a big thing at the moment we look back on certain people and some have committed stuff that needs to be punished but we can look back on on stuff now. Things are recorded with such different point of view. D feel like that way should can't so high it Saturday I think it got it got cancelled but I mean should we be changing our thinking about what it was. I think. Yeah well I think it should be. I think you should put everything in context. I don't think I made these videos are less about high and more about Australia. And I and I think we should be looking at us and our regrets and and measuring them on on the same scale as successes yes of course because we all do stuff that we regret that we like and so much of it is recorded in in tweets on. That was not long ago. They announced the new massive judges for next year and the female judge think. Melissa Leong a tweet came up up from her that way back when she tweeted whoever gets a job at a massive shift you know and you said that once and now you're a judge you know it's it makes me slightly nervous because I work in breakfast radio noise. You GotTa be careful what you say all the time. I tweet undulate within seconds all the time you really. Yeah 'cause I'm like I don't want to have this conversation and I think of something funny and I'm like actually this is going to open up a can of worms that I'm not ready for. Yeah of course but then I think about these more. I'm serious things like. Can we still enjoy Michael Jackson's music nor that was a hard Niger. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Do you want to talk about this because because I I I have stopped listening myself. After watching that documentary that came out earlier in the and yet I would I can drive home and uncertain radio stations. They they still play on bad anything. Why Yeah and don't you think the messaging of the song is like you can give out as S. too many songs where I'm like? I know what you're talking about now I just. I think there's enough in the world's to give your attention to people that deserve it. Another example is what telly of the not and Baby driver was on which I love. It's one of the best movies of the last number of years and yet Kevin spaces in it and so now I think completely different because Kevin Spacey's in it and I and I haven't watched baby driver because of that I like which I'm like. I probably still should give it a go and I enjoyed Kevin Spacey's acting but like I none of them really bothered me like not even hit I personally until like the John Chris floozy the due to made ren and stimpy. I always the biggest reddening fan Lotta toys and collectibles collectibles and stuff and he he was grooming like girls that will I tain fans of his kind of came out last year. I think and I like that was the first time I was challenged into. What do you do if you really love something and the person behind it sucks and it was really the easy for me to just pack up and decide? I'll never watch it again. Yeah like I don't know I don't know I. It wasn't a fight that AH that's interesting 'cause I had never heard of that. I didn't know about that but now I'm thinking about my riddance. TB DVD sit at home. Wow Oh it's it's a lawn isn't it. And I think I love and I am not ashamed to say I love Michael Jackson songs but I just can't listen to the now. Yeah and I think that's fine like like you know them all you can listen to them in your brain you want it's true. Do you think that it's a broad spectrum. We token here of what people don. But do you think like for example if Daryl awesome came out or the executive producer of high came out and said. He's an apology for what we did. Do you think it's possible to fig even rain state that on because it's on type is that well I guess it depends on the very many good apologies going around I notice. It's true like trivia good appellate let let him and did a nice kind of remorseful. This foil apology the other day when someone addressed the lack of women in the writer's room and attention that they got that he was unaware oblivious to her and I don't know it was. It was nice to see a kind apology. Most most of them are protective. I I don't know I just don't think it's good to begin with like it's it's it's less about for me it's like I don't know should have we ever should. We have ever been celebrating it or was it just like the best thing that was around at the time but when they rebooted it and they did the reunion show eat it like millions of people watch that it was massive. Yeah yeah like it's it's it's massive in people's mind they're obsessed with the idea that the content maybe the Pizza Party in the one point two five bottle of coke. You know that you have with your family on a Saturday night and watch some like a funny funny photos or a wheel gets like. Everything's pretty like it's a wheel. Getting spun like a report. Both of the Gong show just photos in before the Internet. Like it's all it's pretty basic stuff. Yeah we're Bama has come out in the last few dies and says that he wants to cancel cancel culture. Yeah he was like a you know ye copy you copy perfect in your quest to be work over yet yes exactly. Yeah he says quote call out. Culture wasn't a great form of activism. And he's way more about making people feel self-satisfied than actually making change says Abedi. I bet you night at work you are. What do you think that like? I think the Internet definitely makes it super easy to be outraged and like even even more outrage than you really are on the inside and maybe you know spread it out over a couple of things rather than focusing on something but like I I'm just old for a fight against the status quo like I think you've gotTa Punch through stuff like this ends. You know. See what you get to on the other side. I I feel like it's GonNa get Kinda Boring tecate canceling clover nerve. I think people would just get bored of jumping on the same Bandwagon over and over and probably will take into account facts. And maybe it maybe apologizing. We'll be part of the process where it doesn't get to the point where red explodes as hard. I don't know I think it's he stay anyway. Might like a I think. I think there's a lot of Vaudeville so hook these these. PODCASTS is always trying to improve stuff mega step forward. So so what do you think. What shall we do about high it Saturday? I mean it's it's gone but Darryl streaming service but also like cancel culture. What do you think I think there's? I don't think you need to do anything about. Hey Saturday I think it's just like I think it's just important to reflect on on culture and kind of use it as a reference to with things have gone and also what what has Stayed The same. And what needs improving Cancel Culture Uh like I. I think that that needs to be. There's some type of better adjustment to freedom of speech where it's not as freight virtually show. I think I think they need like I think moving forward I think the media I I always think they should be something like the people that are in charge of the emojis. I think they should be in charge of what you can. And I can't say and there's like a committee of people and things are getting updated all the time and there's a there's a good reference base of of of things that that that are allowed and then if there's something that feels weird it's like you can check it against here right. Why why do you say the emojis? Because they kind of do I think they seem to do a good job on on Choosing the right things that we need to talk about never thought the judge of of free speech and rate right in with this part of the United Nations Australian government. I think it'd have to be like a worldwide thing. It would John Pattison. I really really thankful for your time and that you That you've you've made these videos that challenge the way we think about stuff that's for me was because unlike I don't know whether to see this is art or entertainment or or some sort of controversy. Honestly go and check out these videos if you haven't yet because it all Mike you think I think that's what it comes down to. Yeah that's definitely what it's about Jump thanks so much for joining me on the PODCAST. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. That's John Pattison from the griots sharing about he's high. Hi Obsession if you WANNA watch the yourself. You can find them on Instagram at J. H. O. N. J. O. N. Patterson but be but he warned they aren't easy to watch. Thanks so much for listening.

Lem covers it really is kind of a snapshot into the Christian Music of the seventies eighties and the nineties and we talk a lot about the culture and these artists in the background some of these songs. I play a lot of song clips. It's just a wrong and I think you're GonNa have a great time. If you WANNA watch the video version of this that youtube links in the description box you can go back and actually see the album covers that I am referring to here on the show okay. I'm a former former F._M.. Broadcast spent a dozen years in Christian radio the some pop and rock radio after that but I'm always ask about Christian radio specifically because and there are whole websites there are lots of memes out there about Christian album covers and some of them are awesome summer terrifying some are both and especially in the earlier days of Contemporary Christian music. I mean these days. What what you see is such a blatant rip off of what's happening already in pop and rock radio and they've got the big names the big record companies behind them that the charm is kind of gone? I want to go back to the days when Contemporary Christian Music Christian rock even Christian Metal Christian punk was in its infancy and it was run by these little boutique record companies that you know they were putting album covers together that they thought were cool and of course now we look back and we are more than mildly horrified okay well. This is just great fodder for entertainment for us now. You may not be a child of the seventies eighties nineties whatever but I don't think it matters because I'm GonNa take. I'm GonNa put you in a time capsule. We're going to go back in time. We're going to be bop around the seventies eighties and nineties and I've got some interesting anecdotes and stories. That should tie all this together. If you know nothing about Christian music I think this will still be a fascinating journey and for those who like me were raised in the cradle of the faith these songs these artists. This culture was the background for our life. Okay so I'm GonNa Start with this group here. This group is called the allies. The allies released their first album back in nineteen eighty five now on the front of the album. They're all dressed for this is spiritual warfare and they're going after the devil warriors Jesus the Guy in the very middle here on and off you. Can you see my mouse and cursor yes. The guy here in the middle. Name is Randy Thomas. He was the lead guitarist and songwriter and vocalist. <hes> side vocalist for a band called the sweet comfort band. You may know the lead singer Bob Carlisle. He's the guy who is on the alley second from right. He's got this Daniel Boone had on here. Okay that's Bob Carlisle oil. He's lead vocalist for the allies now. You probably know you're you may know a song that Bob is hugely famous for because he released it to Christian radio but it was picked up by major record labels and it was became a huge smash hidden sold millions and millions of copies. The song was called butterfly kisses and it was written for his daughter on her sixteenth birthday. The song caught fire. I mean it just caught fire anyway. I do have a clip from the allies. This is from a song call surrender from their debut album. Check it out <music>. Okay I see military uniforms in this video I there on what looks like Ocean beach or something they're seaweed hanging off of the snare drum <hes> and for no particular reason at the end of this particular segment dolphins shoot up out of the pool toward the camera and just weird sort of composite of of images. I have no idea what these guys were thinking. Okay next slide this barren cross this is an actual legitimate band. They reformed out of Los Angeles. Mike Lee Ray Perez Steve Whittaker in Djimla Verde. This album came out. I think it's their I back in one thousand nine hundred eighty six this year I graduated from high school. Okay and these guys are still around. They did five albums after that. They've done some reunion shows. This is barren cross now. They were pitched as the Christian version version of iron maiden. Remember Christianity likes to grab whatever pop culture is doing and then they make a Christian version of it and then they release it and say wow isn't it great. We have a godly alternative so this was our version in a maiden. Were they really. I'll let you decide for yourself. whoa yeah it painful on the album cover? We've got what looks like not quite a royal blue there. The Guy Second from the left has boots with white flames those white flames coming up his SPANDEX. We have belts with stubs on them and a guy that weighs about eighty eight pounds with the poodle hair who is sticking his fist in the air defiantly. We will rock but the king this was the culture that I was raised at okay okay now. This isn't one that's been floating around online. You show you this <hes>. This is Beverly Massey as she's. He's real lie some of this stuff that's floating around. I've our time verifying <hes> beverly and her puppet or Mary Ann Nana Mary Net what are they called a ventriloquist's dummy i. I don't know what you call them <hes> his name. I'm is Eric. She is shit. You not a former film actress. I think she was a playboy. Model nightclub singer first husband of this woman was a hit man no shit shit. He was a member of the dixie Mafia and <hes> he was murdered. <hes> she wrote a book. She Sang Gospel Song. She actually hit the circuit and would do this. Ventriloquist entr ill-equipped him act from the stage. She was on Geraldo. She was on forty eight hours. She's been on Larry King all right and I'm not done yet because apparently this woman was on site on the a day of the J._F._k.. assassination she can be seen in the Zapruder film and once gave testimony before a I think a House subcommittee about the assassination I I had to go to Multiple Bible websites because I was incredulous like you've gotta be shitting me like is her. Life is like forrest gump on some sort of psychedelic drug and then you look at the album cover she sitting here with his totally really creepy and the the song and the album a man that was huge. Check this next one out. This is Bruno. Maltese Heavens Kit man but we have is a man who looks like a giant Prune -I thumb. I wasn't convinced and I'm still not totally convinced. This guy's real okay. It's on the album front. It's hard to read. It says featuring if you were to die tonight because I killed you. Do you know for certain that you'd go to heaven right you look at this album cover and you never sleep. Again well I did some searching for Bruno Maltese on Youtube and I found a clip. I'M GONNA play for <hes> what I don't know what that is. I don't know what it is okay. You may have heard of this guy. He got famous back in the early. Nineteen eighties Carmen last name is his liquor diller. Let Liquor Liquor Delo or something <hes> this is the front of his album along time ago in a land called Bethlehem. Now Carmen originally toured with the gaither vocal band like a southern Gospel trio back and I think the late seventies as early eighties and then he really started getting noticed as a solo artist around one thousand nine hundred eighty to ninety ninety three now he sold like ten million records and he's done he. Does these stories songs where he talks through half of them. One of them is called the champion. It's like a nine minutes song where it's Jesus and the devil and they're like a rocky movie there in the middle of a ring and there's you know a soundtrack pulsing behind them Satan's like you know you bring what you bring your best somewhat gets you and he's like yeah. He shut your face on and not you out at the end of the song the champion Jesus or God or whoever kicks the shit out of Satan and there is great rejoicing because good has triumphed William Dover evil. This is the sort of temperature of what Carmen produced a lot of these talkie story songs okay and they sold this album with a straight face back in the early nineteen eighties he is yes. I guess a Bible character of some kind carmen interestingly made an announcement like six years ago that he had terminal brain cancer and that he was not expected to live more than I don't know a couple of years something like like that and now recently has come forward and said he is cancer free. Now there is speculation that and I don't want to ever minimize someone's cancer diagnosis. This is a very serious subject but there is a lot of speculation that he may have manufactured the cancer diagnosis so that he could sell the idea of being miraculously cured <hes> and it's hard for me to say that but you know on the heels of the announcement of his cancer diagnosis he then put together a kickstarter campaigns so that he can produce a new album and music video so we've makes the cancer diagnosis than he does a kickstarter campaign and he raised a quarter of a million dollars plus he raised over a quarter of a million dollars and then two years later January twenty fifteen. He comes out and he says hey my cancer is gone in light of the fundraising and the publicity M. I. Skeptical of the Cancer Diagnosis and the claims of Miraculous Cure. Yeah I am and I think we have good reason to be. I mean show me show me the scan. Show me the diagnosis. Show me a physician endorsed prognosis but I don't think you can come forward and just say I'm going to die of cancer and then I'm cured and thanks for their quarter million dollars. I mean as anybody else's at ring of an alarm bell of skepticism in your head anyway. Here's a band I really liked this is quintessential eighties Christian music to Garowe uh-huh and key we also call them D and K. They got their start in nineteen seventy eight. This was sort of the beginnings of the Communications Age the information age and you can Intel by the checkout television. This was high tech right here. This looks like one of those old Sony televisions and the name of this album is called Communication Ed to Garm O- on the left Dana Key on the right Ed played keys the Keytar specifically typically the keytar courses awesome. Dana Key was an accomplished guitarist and songwriter. He died nine years ago. He had complications from a blood clot big surprise. He died <hes>. They were the first ever band to have a video oh on m._t._v.. This was a big crossover opportunity for Christian music. We're like Oh. Why are we got an a song on MTV legitimising Christian music? The song was called six six six. It was of course about the end times the book revelation the number of the beast is six six six and God awful movies actually invited me on their show last year the year before to do a review of the music video. You should just look it up because we had a ball Al- dissecting this. It's just this guy he looks like a an Aha video he walks in to this dark alley and they're these people in suits with dark sunglasses there obviously the agents of Satan and and there's all this clandestine spy kind of activity one world government type stuff you know just sign your name. Put Your print here and you will belong to the new world order. It was that kind of thing but it was done so cheese early in the eighties this this video was actually banned from MTV originally because it had what was called a full body burn there was a section in the video where I think it was the Anti Christ erupted in a ball of flame he was completely on fire from head to toe and they had some prohibition about showing a human being on fire so they went back and re edited the video so instead of a man going on fire you saw some skulls that appeared in these crystal balls and only after they made the edit did Garmin keys six six six get airplay. Here's a short clip from the video. Tonight is new Jeez uh-huh he just six okay. Did you catch that five and a quarter floppy disk the cigar if they open up this cigar box and inside is an old old school five and a quarter floppy how much did five and a quarter floppy hold. How much data does anybody remember not much? I think we had one for the old Commodore Commodore Sixty four take five and a quarter. I can't remember but anyway and not not only do you see the five and a quarter floppy but they actually have a label printed on it and it's not even code. It's like six six and <hes> the whole video is very much very much that way. Here's another jam I found on the Internet. This seems to defy all attempts to verify it. It's the faith eighth tones. The album cover is supposedly that of a female trio back from nineteen sixty four the faith tones. I think they look like like a mix of Mary Tyler Moore back in the nineteen sixties and and the the from Talos four from classic trek. That's what they look like to me. I've been looking around to try to find you know whether or not this is legit. There's a guy named Jonathan tweet. He posted the Song Jesus use me to youtube and he had this album cover as the thumbnail and there is an actual female trio singing the song now again. I don't know if this is real or bogus but here's the chorus yeah. That's that's nothing that's nothing no need to punish the listeners. There's no need to do that to you. I won't do that because I love you. This is a real album. It's an aerobics is album firm believer a complete exercise program featuring today's finest Christian music and this is all part of the <hes> fitness craze of the nineteen eighties. Remember the Jane Fonda started a fitness studio in Los Angeles back in nineteen seventy nine and she then published a fitness book which was a huge bestseller on the New York Times bestsellers list. It actually caused them to create a separate category. Just for these types of books self help books. That book inspired the V._H._S. home workout video which became at the time the best selling home video in the world like the biggest home video was Jane Fonda workout video and of course this is a prime opportunity for Christians to do what they do so we copied the culture so we created the firm Believer Jodi Mozer and bobby welcome youth. They came out with firm believer in one thousand nine hundred eighty two that was only one example. Here's another one the one thousand nine hundred eighty two fitness album featuring Vicki Hanson. It's called aerobic glow low fitness in action. He was published on the Indie Religious Label Day spring one year later in one thousand nine hundred eighty three this came out day spring records as well. They were capitalizing on the fitness craze with this little jam called special believe or size okay. This has illustrated instructions on a poster included inside the album jacket now if you think that the front of this album feels just it's a little bit stepford wives check out the back side of the album cover holy Sh- wow oh look at their face look at their faces and tell me they don't look like those homicidal hospital nurses that you see in the paper you know the ones that put cyanide in your medicine when nobody's looking right kind of trust me now. I'm not GONNA put what rat poison in your I._V.. Now I'm not GonNa do that. They have that look about them tariff anyway. That was a big thing in the mid nineteen eighties lots of any no if you're working out for Jesus there's a local local fitness place here in Bryant six seven miles from my house. It's called body by God body by God is awesome because you go in and you pay a membership fee like you would at a nonreligious workout studio and then you do exercises like you would at a nonreligious workout studio and then you adjust your diet so that you can be healthier like you would at a non religious workout studio but somehow they are different. They are body by God. You get to do all the work but it's body by God. Here's one of the scariest things I have seen so far this year. Are you reading Kathleen. Beatty God's chosen puppet. The album cover has a woman in address Sunday even know what you call this kind of dress but it has that little neck collar that it seems is to push the head upward as if they were afraid to even show the skin of the neck breaking some kind of modesty rule. I guess I couldn't find the actual album I did a google search. I could not find a verified audio clip from the album I saw links is to Amazon and where you could supposedly sample and buy the album but those links did not work. I saw this featured on Conan O'Brien's talk show Jane Lynch was on there and she did her segment about Christian album covers but they didn't play a clip theologically logically. I think this one's a little bit problematic because I mean as a former Christian. You're supposed to choose Christ or you go to hell right but you're supposed to have free will to do so yeah. You know you ask God you see council. Would you listen to the Holy Spirit. You follow his commands. Are you a puppets. Maybe I mean maybe is he. He guides your actions. I guess I buy that Metaphor. The Lord Guide and direct US lead <hes> Sochi God's chosen puppet. I mean the idea the whole concept to me is just terrifying surrender. Your will surrender your identity and let someone else completely control you. It's terrifying somebody. If you find this album somewhere. Send me an email seth at thinking atheist dot Com. I need to know if this is real Anita. Don't send me the one that says click here to go to Amazon is on and then it doesn't exist. I've been through all those I'm saying if you can find the actual album I want to know about it. God's chosen puppet Eva Kathleen B._T.. B A T why why I love the stuff that listeners send me I didn't have album covers for these next few clips their video clips and they're just to priceless not to share one was sent to me by a listener. It's the heritage singers I've never heard of the heritage singers this clip dates back to nineteen seventy nine. I was watching the video on. I'll play you a very short clip. Watch this clip and tell only if it's not totally the handmaid's tale <music> terrifying. Oh yeah as handmaid's tale right. They're just say that's that's handmaid's tale. Okay that's from the album through the years volume two from nineteen seventy six the heritage singers pick up that album today. It's on vinyl at a Christian music store. The are you coming up next. Son Seed and Jesus is my friend they watch the Bass player Jesus Jesus Jesus right to life as it should be taught me how to turn much. I speak and I can do that. He's one will never leave you. Take Jesus Jesus Jesus. Tim in the chat said this is just vile if you like that edgy piece of Christian entertainment you'll love this this this was sent to me by a listener. I don't know who these people are at obviously originated on a Christian television network somewhere probably back in the ninety S. I'm guessing T._B._N.. Right the Trinity Broadcasting Network Christian break dancing using move straight to you know what's the guy in the middle to get serious yeah uh-huh. Oh yeah that's awesome.

I do have an audio clip this an actual band another Los Angeles Band from the nineteen eighties they formed in. I think eighty four the album here released in nineteen ninety.

This is from nineteen sixty nine. This was <hes> the year after I was born came out on him tone records Jim and Tammy and their friends and they have little creepy puppets and they are singing songs and doing spoken word stories for Jesus Christ. These two hosted <hes> pity L. Right praise the Lord the P._T._O.. Club they were hosted that for over a dozen years Jim Baker he defrauded patrons. They had this Christian theme park called Heritage U._S._A.. And it was built to the tune of millions billions of dollars and he sold these packages to patrons so that they would come and visit but he oversold and he misrepresented what they were. He was convicted of fraud. I forget how many county was convicted on. He was sentenced to forty five years forty five years in prison and a half million dollar fine. He was paroled after only five years in the slammer so sentenced to forty five he only has to do five he comes out and he writes a book and he tied those the book. I was wrong wrong. Supposedly a penitent returned to the ministry. I now know why it was Satan working in me and now I'm a better man. He is still around. He is on television freaking out about the end times and he's selling these apocalypse care packets. Okay he selling buckets of freeze dried food. He selling electric blankets tactical flashlights solar power generators talking about the end of the world. Here's a shot of him and his wife. They are pitching water bottles that are supposedly I guess impervious to radiation. Oh Hell Obata had these at Chernobyl. It would have been nice right. So there's a whole year you know when the time comes and everything's irradiated after the nuclear war. We're GONNA need them. Water bottles that will keep your water from being irradiated. There's as creepy wife to the left. Okay well Vic Berger B. E. R. E E R V. I C Vic Burger has priceless enhanced edits of Jim Baker television clips now he trusts them up so it draws a circle around what's already there the insanity already in place in the add some music and whatnot occasionally he'll at a pause or repeat but he's using them is using them in action using the he's using absurdity to demonstrate the absurd okay here's just mystic clip and by the way after I show this I want you to go straight to VIC burgers youtube channel and subscribe. You must go B.. E. R. G. E. R. Vic Burger because he does all kinds of good stuff. Here's a clip to have a whole meal. It was holy remain yeah. The highest class of food that you can get is what's in that bucket John we have all these people here. Hear people say twenty five hundred dollar shooting starts with P.. People they won't say the other word okay. What are you going to do with the DOODOO? Do you have a plan. People eat and people go to the bathroom. I came eleven eight. Wow here's a gym. That's nasty well L.. And what do you mean it's nasty. I'm probably the only three in America that is concerned about your ball movement. What are you going to show it with? What are you going to dig a hole with? What are you going to do with the do okay and then in the video they take the food bucket and you're supposed to finish a ton of money for that? has all this like freeze dried food that will last through the apocalypse chiefs and you can take a toilet seat cover because after you ate it you have to eliminate right. What do you do with the Doodoo so you sit on the bucket and you shit into the bucket that your food came in so it's an all purpose you get it going in you? Get it coming out praise Jesus and for a donation of twenty five hundred twenty five hundred dollars plus shipping new bulk sampler bundle now they use these buckets as props. They prop up tables on apple stack walls. They had I shit you. Not they had a group of people singers on his show singing staying alive saying the crown. We are in the final days. Wow we are in the last day. You know what's wrong with stack poodle installations. It's tasty. It's seasoned just right. It's not overseas receive and is not anders season. Get your fool start. Ordering Biscuit is back Cadillac truly. This is the best it's pancakes. People need to understand understand. They're not Giddy Sawdust and salt and far board right. You could sit on this part you. When you gotta go you gotta go? Are you listening to make GRANDPA. This will help you in any serious or <music> whatever I have no doubt this man is a sociopath in a Predator and a con man and the fact that we live in a culture that has made him wealthy. I think is an indictment us. All you know I just and one of the best tools we have against a guy like this is I think ridicule and mockery and Vic Burger does it better than anybody V. I. C. B. E. R. G. E. R. think There's a facebook page. <hes> this also known as Super Deluxe BIC burgers super deluxe he takes all this stuff and <hes> he just sorta spins spins it on its ear and we get some entertainment out of laughing at Jim Baker okay. I'm just saying Kerry. Live Grin is one of the founding members of the legendary nineteen seventies and eighties band Kansas and I'm a big Kansas Hispan- right carry on my way word Sawn and dust in the wind and all that <hes> carry live green is quite literally a renaissance man. This is not hyperbole built his first guitar for Pete's sake a place keys and guitar. He is responsible for the guitar work on dust in the wind and carry on but this guy found Jesus right back in the early nineteen eighties. I think he was sort of sampling at the buffet of religion and you found Jesus Carry Lebron one of their key songwriters I started writing Christian messages into the lyrics of Kansas his music and you can hear it as the band evolves as the band defaults rather on the album vinyl confessions. There's there's a song called crossfire nine thousand nine hundred eighty two the lyrics are there overt Christian lyrics. You're caught in a crossfire of a greater love than man has ever known caught in a crossfire and you've got to choose which way you're going to go caught in a crossfire in a world of darkness turn to light. He starts writing this stuff and many people in Kansas start to get pissed off and they're like stop. Stop doing this. You know what what are you doing. Why are you making this a religious man? What's up with all the lyrics of these songs that you're writing and it got so bad that lead singer Steve Walsh left the band he was replaced by this guy's name is John Elephants Ironically? I also a Christian he went on to found another band called mastodon along with his brother Dino. They produced a bunch of albums for bands like Petra and I'm GonNa get to Petrie in just a little bit okay anyway back to carry Lebron. He founded a Christian band called Kerry Live Grin A._D.. And listen to the clip and tell me if you don't hear some eighties Kansas in Kebbi Lindgren a D UH-HUH I mean they get a sacs instead of a violin but I heard a little eighties candice in there. It sounds it's got the vibe of Vinyl Confessions. There's a song on their called beyond the Pale L. that I still like still like it. It's very eighty s I still like you know here's one that was listed in a bunch of bad Christian album cover hover articles. I can't determine if this is real or fake Lauretta Fudge fingering and praying for the Lord. I've looked around for verification for this. I have no idea if it's real or not says Westminster records I did plenty of Google searches. I tried to find audio clips online the title and the artist both <unk> seem like wink wink double entendre this looks like a joke Loretta Fudge fingering and praying for the Lord. If you can trace the origin of this album Internet you know what to do okay. Here's the Karatas preacher Mike Crane. This is an album called God's power this is legit. It is listed as a spoken word album from the label soundtrack recordings and isn't that novel tracks include fight with gang leader bootleggers versus Mike Power in the blood and breaking of concrete now I found some clips related to this record from from the Youtube Channel called Thrift Store Vinyl and I have four you on the broadcast about a minute with Karatas to preacher Mike Kane from the spoken word track called breaking of concrete when I prepared to break this concrete I realize I have a great obstacle to overcome and I hit a Yale this caught a kion crowded when I hear this yell mixed up the synapses in my mind so forth split-second. There's no electrical current in my I'm on my mind will not record a pains of also mind body. When I yell the drunk in my adrenal glands secrete in my bloodstream Gimme tremendous super strength all the speed concentration techniques focused in one split second say hit the concrete? The energy is dissipated the concrete the congress breaks. There's result L. feel. I'm paying the Internet good now if you didn't understand that they say a picture's worth a thousand words this time I'll break the concrete with one hand. Take a few minutes to build up my concentration order to do this. Okay glad that's over. I'm glad that to I had so much fun prepping this show my grain crops breeder okay. I wanted to include this one because it's got an interesting story. This guy's name is Morgan. Cryer looks very much like <hes> another classic eighties album cover all right but but <hes> his biggest radio hit Morgan cryer. It was called pray in the U._S._A.. Released in nineteen eighty six okay and the lyrics start with the words teacher saying can't be praying says it's against the rules and we've heard much of this today in fact I think was Jim Baker talking about how they're about to make the Bible and prayer illegal bullshit. We're free today in the U._S._A.. Not here in my school well. I got news for you today. You can't stop a heart praise and then there is this defiant chorus <music>. Uh Okay well the video. This is actually his music video. The whole video shows a guy who's driving through through the border through through the border gate like what is he is. He leaving America leaving the United States to go pray in Mexico or Canada. I don't know what the point is. I don't know what they're talking about but we see this false narrative right and let me read some of the <hes> other lyrics to come after it says well. I'm no rebel just to pebble stock in some judges shoe. My bended knee may not be free but my heart's GonNa break on through their poor and fuel on the fire trying to stop what God desires you can still praying in the U._S._A.. And then in the Abridge it says someday we may hear it. Praying is a felony. I guess they'll call us. Criminals and I guess that's what I'll be now. We see in place here the. Persecution Narrative Morgan Crier and Christianity is a whole stelling persecution narrative right. I Peter Four if you are reproached in the name of Christ blessed are you for the spirits and glory rests upon upon you. What do you do though when you live in a nation that is one of the most religiously free on the planet you know you can believe what she wants for? Whatever reason you want you can own the Bible you can read the Bible you can have Bible liable studies? You can attend worship anytime anywhere you celebrate religious holidays. You send your kids to religious schools. You can have religious clothing jewelry necklaces rings whatever Christian bumper stickers on your car you can put symbols does in your yard at your desk nativities radio stations blend Christian music affirming your faith twenty four seven. You've got politicians. Invoking your specific God from whatever platform they're on right you essentially have a constant plant protection and privilege for your Christianity even when it goes against the United States constitution and yet you sell the narrative that you are persecuted one day. They'll call us criminals and I guess that's that's what I'll be. I guess one day when they make me outlawed I will become an outlaw for J.J. That's it's pathetic and I used to buy into it back. When I was dyed in the wool believer brainwash believer feeling persecuted persecute right what's that quote by Emerson Lebanon Lebanon never dream that I am persecute? I'm paraphrasing. Let me never dream that. I am persecuted. When I am being contradicted? I was simply being contradicted. Somebody had the nerve to disagree with my pet religion and <hes> I cried persecution. It happens all the time everywhere. I knew include this one. Just for the parachute pants milem the fabric was his name is Mylan Luff ever and broken heart actually saw this tour at the Brady Theater and Tulsa back in one thousand nine hundred eighty five I think and yes they wore those outfits on the stage parachute pants. We go white boots boots. We got out his glitter is. I don't know what that is. <hes> Sunglass Oh yeah we got <hes> eighties hair perms. We got all kinds of good stuff going on there. Here's a a Christian punk Dan. They were called one one bad pig. This was from the album smash came out in nineteen eighty nine. Here's an clip from song on that album called smashed the guitar guitar this this album cover stop. What's on the guy's pants are those pigs and one of my look at it? I mean whatever whatever works for I am. I don't if I'm ashamed to admit kind of have a soft spot for this band well. I mean not that I excuse any of the stuff they've done but of all the bands of the nineteen eighties for me petrobas probably one of the most influential bill and actually kind of like if you were there album covers. Don't judge me. Don't catch me okay Petra formed in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. These guys were just staples. Christian Music Petra was always mentioned when it came to to Contemporary Christian music and Christian rock they were considered edgy by the most conservative people and the true blue rockers felt like Petra was Muzak and so this was the album that came out. I think this nineteen in eighty two more power to you which was also the title of a hit song after that you saw a trend they began using the guitar as spaceship in their album covers. This is not of this world nineteen eighty-three after to that was their live album captured in time and space. They've got more Sifi Guitars spaceships which also can look like birds. I don't know what's really funky. This was back to the streets nineteen eighty six greg volts. The lead singer was replaced by John Schlitt it from head east for this album. Everybody was freaking out going always yet. They Lost Greg Volts. The band will never be the same John took over and they didn't even skip a beat and then they started to mix up the artwork on the album covers this unseen power from Petra Nineteen Nineteen Ninety one and of course the windmills on the cover referring to the unseen power of course wind can be measured unlike the unseen quote Unquote Power of the supernatural which apparently orally defies measurement. I don't get it like I think the analogy totally false apart but I do have a little bit of a soft spot for for Petra and I will admit to listening to this a particular song on the rare occasions. It's sort of crosses my path the title track of the album from eighty three not of this world the do I have fond memories of the song because it marks a certain time in my life I think I was in ninth grade so it evoke certain memories. You know like you know it's not. I don't think it's the song itself I think it just takes me back to a specific time in my life you know they say that the music you listen to between the ages of I think it's fourteen and twenty one are usually the favorite favorite songs for the rest of your life the ones that you have the most affection for of course that's you know there are many exceptions to the rule but you know the soundtrack of your life when you're a teenager and young adult these songs sort of mark you and it was petras not of this world that was one of my most beloved albums of the time and so anyway in our WTI F- Department this one is called Satan as for the bird sits by the Philistines quartet. I can't find anything on this record. This cobber has been featured on bad Christian album covers websites and lists but I can't find the actual album we have Satan is for the birds in kind of a blue Sifi. Looking font sort of there is a picture of a woman and her daughter. She is holding a rooster. The mother and daughter are standing in front of wallpaper while also wearing wallpaper beneath. You've got a group of people including what the hell's up with the guy on the far left I is jumping is a falling from the sky is a tipping over is fire coming out of a sugar. Is that a feather author on his collar. What is that what are we looking at but I can't find the actual album so I can't verify that it's real? I can verify this one so don't despair this is legit and I have audio. Oh from the album by the Leuven brothers Satan Israel. That's actually a twelve foot cardboard devil. They feel like they're standing on hot coals near her hell or an entrance to help <hes> the record came out in nineteen fifty nine they went to a rock quarry and they brought this twelve foot plywood devil and they stuck it in the rock quarry behind him and then they took tires tires car tires and they hit him inside the rocks and they filled them with kerosene and they lit them on fire and stood in front of it for the photograph. Both of the Lubin brothers are dressed like a very skinny Colonel Sanders from Kentucky Fried Chicken Chicken and they wanted to warn us about devil ry endanger warning us that yes Satan Israel yes preacher. It's sweet to know that God is real and to know that in him all things are possible and we know that heaven is a real place where joy show never in but center friend if you're here today Satan Israel to and inhale is a real place a place of everlasting punishment and you can see in hand too hard time D._J.. For Southern Gospel station that was owned by Cakes O._J.. So we actually had <unk> songs like the Brothers Zaydan Israel on Capitol records. That's an inspirational song that warns us about the dangers temporary lurking out there in this sinful and carnal world. Can I get an Amen Dan a man okay <hes>. This is an album the tells us <hes> that it's important for us to walk with Jesus. This is the singing Gospel. Let's Gospel at G. O.. S. P. The E.. L. E. T. T. E. S. recorded in Stereo phonic high fidelity. No just stopped. I can't do anymore awful. I can't do it to you. All right. Human being has their limit dammit. This guy's name is Steve Taylor. I found his story very interesting. This is a classic eighties album covers <hes> for his debut album called. I want to be a clone and you see the Christian clones. They're all lined up in the pews. Okay there was an EP or an a mini a C._d.. Or a mini L P and it was really brave. This album actually really was pretty on edge for calling out Christians for being clones for not having identities of their own for sitting in the pews and just being sheep the the sheep wool and not doing any of their own thinking you know I was now I look back and wonder if he was truly a skeptic or if he was just one of those guys who belt like the Church had problems and he wanted to fix that ship from within this is the nineteen eighty-five cover for his album. The Fritz classic eighties album covers well. This album came out right around the time of the first robocop film and I always thought and I'll show you the photographs. I always thought that Steve Taylor looked like the actor for robocop Peter Weller I mean look at the do you see a resemblance or is it just is my mind playing tricks on me Steve Taylor Peter Weller I mean it's not a perfect resemblance A. D. it. Let's think on these things my friends two years later he released this album called. I predict nineteen ninety so Steve Taylor starts out as his controversial introver- she'll figure in Christian music. He's poking fun at the clones. He had a single in nineteen eighty-four call. We don't need no color code. It was actually a song criticizing Bob Jones University because they had an anti interracial schol dating policy in place at the time at Bob Jones and this guy was calling them out he wrote songs making fun of televangelists like Jimmy Swaggart and other T._v.. Preachers asking for money he wrote a song directed at Christian in Cult Leader Bill Gothard. It was called manipulate. I mean this is pretty heavy stuff for Christianity and they actually ended up pulling the album. I predict nineteen ninety from the shelves over a song called. I blew up the clinic real good. This song criticized anti-abortion activists who said they'd be prepared to bomb planned parenthood right a imagine how many lives you'd save if you went in and you bombed an abortion clinic and so he wrote this song to criticize those was awful. People Steve Taylor is still around. He released a single called Moonshot back in two thousand fifteen. I haven't heard it. I don't know anything else. This popped up in my searches for classic Christian album covers. I think it's fake but I don't know for sure one way or the other Bobby Vogel stuffed crust Jesus keep feeding my faith and he's holding a pizza with Jesus standing on the Pepperoni I yeah I don't know it's listed up there. In the Christian album covers anybody can find the origin of this one. Just let me know well. Let's finish big. Shall we my friends. Let's finish with some Christian and metal rock for Jesus such thrash for the Canon of thrash or not. I don't really know metal that difference between hardcore grind core thrash. I don't know any of these terms so I'm sure I'm going to get them wrong. This is an actual the album cover for a band called vengeance. They had to change their names shortly. After this album released in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight they found out somebody else was using the name vengeance for their band so ben since then became vengeance rising and they released this album called human sacrifice with pretty gory image of a hand on across the big ass spike right through the palm of course. I'm like well isn't that Jesus. Jesus was God yeah he was honored percent man one hundred percent God but it was not really a human sacrifice so is that supposed to be a human sacrificed instead of Jesus. I don't understand the album cover human sacrifice but you see this big spike track titles for this album included I love of hating evil fatal delay fill this place with blood and beheaded featuring these catchy lyrics and I saw the beast rise and the dragon gave him his power in the world followed followed him and it was granted him to make war with the saints and to overcome them seven thunders uttered their voices but the message has been sealed however there are certain things that the Lord has revealed. If anyone worships the beast ten receives the market Erkin drink of the wrath he shall be tormented with fire forever in the presence of the angels in the lamb in the time that it all comes down. You'll find out just what witnessing is really all about nice implied implied threat in that line by the way so when they ask you to take the mark of the beast just screaming their faces I wanNA be beheaded beheaded. I want my head chopped off. You'll see my body rot but then I'll reign with Christ and then you will fry of course this is fear pimping to the highest order because an in the narrative of Christian fundamentalism the mental ISM Jesus comes any raptures the sort of I run believers and then during the seven year tribulation when Satan rules the earth you still can accept Jesus but they're gonNa want you to take the mark mark of the beast and that's like signing your name in statements book right. It's guaranteed trip to Haiti's and if you don't take the mark they'll cut your head off all right and this is the story or in this is the story that they told him the thief in the night films that they showed us back in the seventies and the eighties you know if you take the mark. You're going to hell if you don't take the mark and stand for Christ be prepared to give your very life because they're going to drag your ass out and cut your head off okay. This is the album cover from Turner kits second record called Psycho Surgery. This originally came out in nineteen ninety one right after their debut album titled Stop The bleeding tourniquet is supposed to refer how Jesus can be used to tie off the flow of the meaningless life. I don't get it. I don't understand the metaphor attorney. Kit is to stem the flow of life ebbing meaningless life ebbing out of a limb. I don't understand these guys are still around. Check out the back of the CD cover for stop the bleeding that I found online <hes> we've got the test for leprosy. A track called called Ark of suffering whitewashed tomb some embolism and Harlot widow in the virgin bride harlot widow in the virgin bride is one song now yes. We must hear a clip but before I do that I can't imagine that she will be able to understand so here's what they're singing okay. They're singing madness. Drunken blindness fallen is her kingdom future people living out in ancient sin and before they can win the wedding begins Queen of Ultra Darkness Harlot of hates because of your lust you'll never escape the pride on your lips as sealing your fate you just wait so <unk> centrally. It's fun for the whole family. Here's the clip yeah people listen to this for pleasure. People listen to that for pleasure don't get of course he can't talk about Christian metal without talking about striper yes striper the yellow and black attack here is and this will be our final one the album cover from nineteen eighty-four their debut album album the yellow and black attack. You'll see under the word striper at the top of the record Isaiah fifty three five draws from that scripture by his stripes. We are healed striper. Here's a clip from their smash hit single loud and clear here. He goes high at the end okay all right so anyway that's their debut album came out in the mid eighties and then they came out with a follow up their sophomore effort was called soldiers under command of course you've got the yellow and black attack standing here in front of this big van tricked out in yellow and black. They blacked kicked out the windows. They have yellow emergency lights on the top. There smoke everywhere. We've got eighties hair. We got what looks like sunglasses for snow skiing going on Oz. Fox Guitarist is holding those look like actual weapons yeah they're they're all holding weapons looks like a A._k.. Forty Sevens at a fifty cal on the top of the van. I don't know my weapons very well. So you'll have to tell me kind of weapons they're holding but of course their soldiers soldiers under command their soldiers soldiers for Jesus one year after that one thousand nine hundred eighty six saw the release of their third record called to hell with the devil. This seemed like an edgy title for us in Christian circles at at the time okay fine. I'll play a clip <music> the all right Oh to hell to deal with the devil as edgy stuff edgy controversial in Christian circles at the time. You can't say to hell that there's the debate about whether or not hell is a cuss word you know and then you get really pedantic like the word ass is in the Bible word ass is in the Bible is out of swear word damn dams in the Bible as Outta swearword. It can use that right all right so they took like I don't know how many years off and came back in two thousand five they reinvented themselves with supposedly with the album called striper reborn in this is the album cover what Oh my God striper reborn four it looks like naked AK- dudes tearing themselves out of their own flesh costumes or they're ripping through the what they're ripping through the membrane of yesterday the Striper of the twentieth century to be born here in the twenty first or or maybe they were just accidentally photographed in the record producers sex dungeon. I don't know I don't know I don't know Holy Shit Okay so they just they just come out of the record. This is relatively new. I think it came out in two thousand eighteen pushing the edge of the operating envelope once again with the album called God damn evil. This is the cover cover art. Apparently it's supposed to be poseidon and he's got a sceptre that pierces the earth crust to create some sort of an impact concussion that sends people flying into the air the people flying into the air look doc like they came off a nineteen fifties monster movie poster. There's lightning going on. I think that look at the top left here next to the building. Can you see my cursor. Is that an angel. That's supposed to be like an archangel is in a dragon and maybe it's the twelve foot plywood devil up there. I don't know I know you're waiting so here is a clip from the much anticipated title track to Striper God down evil. God Damn the world. God Damn the world. Is that what they're seeing all-star. I've done enough damage. I think with this broadcast so we shall stop there but thanks for taking this journey with me there. The seventy actually the fifties sixties seventies eighties nineties and the little bit of two thousand since we look at some classic Christian album covers and share some of the stories this behind them them.

2053 - The Korean Peace Process w/ Richard Beck

"You are listening to a free Berge of majority report with Sam cedar to support this show and get another fifty minutes daily program. Goodridge already dot S M, please. Jarra de rub or with Sam, cedar. It's thursday. What month is March twenty first literally space that? This is Michael Brooks on a Michael Thursday. And this is the four time award winning majority report five time award in plu SAM's off on me. Five time award winning majority report, we're broadcasting live steps in the industrial ravage Ghana's canal in the heartland of America downtown Brooklyn USA on today's program. Richard Beck associate editor of n plus one. We're talking about the Korean peace process. Understanding the deeper dynamics at play North Korean political history US military policy the role of the South Korean president condescended to in the US press. But essential and fighting for peace on the peninsula will get to that. North Korea's New Zealand's Prime minister just send to our done are during showing real leadership immediate bans on assault weapons after the price church terrorist attack that killed fifty worshippers at a mosque Mozambique rescue operations underway. As over a thousand been reported dead and women in babies are trapped in trees, there's a race to rescue people who sought refuge on higher elevations. John McCain he might be passed on. But he still bothering Donald Trump Andrew gillum proving once again that not only should he have been governor Florida, but he is one of our most promising and important politicians in the United States. He is unveiling an amazing voter registration effort and voter civil rights protection effort. In florida. It'd be awesome. If beta work that something like that said of wasting everybody's time. GOP governor of Kentucky doesn't believe in. Vaccine's essentially parolling. That's interesting. Not particularly surprising, actually and credit credit is due Bater, aerobic slams Benjamin Netanyahu for playing racists. I wonder if people will go after him the way they did Alano mar guessing probably not for a variety of reasons. Joe Biden continues to make his play Mike Pence used to talk real dirty real spicy behind Donald Trump's back a campaigns of free Lula relaunches in Brazil as new questions surround the lava jot so investigation that put him in jail. In fact, they just got several million dollars hundreds of millions of dollars from the Justice from the Justice department, the United States civil fines rebate to them without any oversight. Even as Michelle Temer Brazilian president who took over against the after the coup against Dilma Rousseff was arrested today on lava jots related corruption charges, he serve. Served his purpose, and they need to reclaim their legitimacy Irani and human rights lawyer is sentenced to thirty years in prison, and thirty lashes we stand in solidarity with her after that obscene policy that obscene decision. Iran's president says their economy is in a serious problems serious danger and president air to one heading into regional elections in a couple of months, increasing his authoritarian grip makes his play to shore up the Turkish economy all that plus youth protesters across the globe take action on the climate crisis. All that and more on today's majority report. I think when John McCain died, we were all as you should be with the public figure really focused on his public output. But as much as I was not a fan of John McCain, politically or militarily and as much as I am I'm an anti fan of Meghan McCain. I I've come to agree with the Brennan Finn position that Meghan McCain's existence in the public sphere is a walking argument against oligarchy inherited wealth position and dynasties. So I guess in a weird way she sort of serving an anti purpose. But I, you know, I just want to say this. And of course, what I think of Donald Trump what we think of Donald Trump is a whole other thing. I mean, he's one of the worst people on the planet a grotesque buffoon racist who is harming the country everyday world, starkville tragedy that he's in power is a world distort tragedies and power. But I will say this, and this I guess also implicates we're gonna actually teaser for some stuff we might be doing tomorrow possibly, but I know there's a lot of atheists on the show. I know a lot of people who don't believe in the non material world, I'm agnostic on these things, but I will say. If John McCain is in any capacity, still bothering Donald Trump. He should stop. And you know, because it's enough the fact that Donald Trump needs to come out here and speak about John McCain. I don't know is it because Donald Trump is a milk brain who can never let go of a grudge as it because Donald Trump is so out of it that he thinks John McCain is still alive, or is there some you know, way that we can't speculate that maybe Donald Trump is actually still being bothered by John McCain. We really don't know whatever it is needs to stop. This is Donald Trump yesterday taking the very much not with us anymore. John McCain to task. And I gotta say, frankly, I think he has a point I endorsed him at his request. And I gave them the kind of funeral that. He wanted the president. I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didn't get thank you. That's. We sent him on the way. But I wasn't a fan of John McCain. So now what we could say is now we're all set. I don't think I have to answer that question. But the press keeps what do you think of McCain? What do you think not my kind of guy, but some people like him, and I think that's great. The only thing that separates Donald Trump for being a complete sociopath is that most sociopaths were socially conditioned to feign, basic, humid, etiquette. Well, yeah. But you don't have if you're born really wealthy you'd never have to learn that stuff. It's not. There's not the selective pressure. Right. Learn that's true. I'm trying to find it. I think Jake tapper might have deleted tweets hundreds tweeted about how like one of his veteran. Sources was texting is like how could isn't there any Republican gonna stand up to this hurts my soul? No. The the point is like j project tapper is like you shouldn't be just passing that tweet along or that text long through tweet you should be wondering why one of your viewers, especially one that has your number is so confused about what to expect from the Republican party. Right. That that text should be. Oh my God. I'm totally incompetent and not doing my job. I'm on TV. I'm on national cable every single day talking and participating for hours and doing my my serious concern face. And somehow you still not conveyed to your viewers that the Republican party will. Never. I mean there was like, you know, with Ben Sasse voting for the border wall. Emergency thing, right. The market of and the pinnacle he isn't even there anymore, and I honestly forget his name. But who is the nothing burger from Arizona who was always Jeff flake Jeff flake, the athletes snowflake, his burn snowflake, New Mexico. Literally lit- literally that's great the aptly named Jeff flake like there was a time a year or two ago certainly two years ago and someone a year ago where there was a big market for. I don't do anything to stop the Trump agenda. In fact, I support making the environment worse. I support increasing poverty, I support handing American corporations I support legally establishing a full oligarchy in reversing democracy. But boy G golly, I will get on the Senate floor and talk about how rude Donald Trump is. And now you see with Ben Sasse. I mean, Ben Sasse he an opportunity to cast a little bit of a vote there because he's the whole Mansell of ood. I'm. So concerned about this. And we're not all bunch of frigging racists went onto him and during a market for that anymore. So jock itch Jake tapper can't even follow the trends of a lot of people pretending to disassociate with Trump voting with Trump all the time or ninety nine percent of the time or ninety percent of the time. This was the moment where? You know, you've just fallen into a complete and utter of this is great just total. Not only rela I mean, just pure incompetence Jake tapper combat vet always with the combat vets with this guy combat VAT tax me, Trump's McCain comments hurt my soul. And by the way, I wanted to say, I'm sure they did, you know. Okay. They were. Can't even call them graceless. You're Right Math or just in the. I mean, Donald Trump is of is a horrible wretched human being Trump's McCain comments, or my soul. How we arrived at a place where this is even possible, and how can the Republican leadership standard this have? We know decency. We'll let me do in reverse order. No, you don't. Secondly, the Republican leadership has stood there wall. Donald Trump has actually done stuff, and they want to do things that will harm irreparably irrevocably rep perk, ably irreparably, Jesus tens of millions of people. They are with it. So okay. So the fact that Jake passes, I mean is just delusional. He's the journalist this other guy could be diluted citizen, but Jake tapper has no excuse I mean, imagine if you knew Jake tapper you knew a premier newsman. And you just believe this bullshit like maybe we will have Jeff flake or pen says do something to right the ship. Like, nah, it's never happening. Never never. I think the the nice little lakeside story here is that I report to that. Johnny is accented Mitt Romney have been the ones who said this is wrong, sir. How dare you have you know, decency? And meanwhile, like John McCain's best friend has little buddy Enzi grams, kicking off his twenty twenty campaign with Mike Pence in South Carolina. And everyone's asking what's going on. He's like he can't say anything because I don't want to get. You got to keep moving with three. No loyalty in this guy. When John McCain was here. I was with him L folks with Donald Trump. Oh, it's like she's monologue in the wire. Loyalty. I'm trying to Bob Korean trying to start a war with our rain trying to get those FOX and France hands sign about love, John McCain was around. I looked at pictures of him and his navy uniform and I loved him then, but the now Trump one and then John McCain, Don. And now, I love Mr. Trump. He no consistency to this. Grow up. Oh my God. I mean, if you still waiting on something from Lindsey Graham, I mean, you are clinical that Lindsey Graham, I think essentially said to you, I'm not like a moral person. Yeah. Borderline, you know, like, you go where you get the hint fluence. All right, folks. We're going to take a brief break, and we will be right back with Richard Beck. Welcome back to the majority report. Michael Brooks here joining us now is Richard back. He's an associate editor at n plus one in his new piece the Korean peace process. Or actually this piece was a published a bit ago, but he's a sort of premier watcher an analyst of this process. Richard thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So what happens in Vietnam how did that process on wind itself? As far as I can tell there's a fair amount of blame to go around for what happened in Vietnam. I think that you had some misconceptions on both sides going to the second summit that resulted in its failure. So you have Trump going in with the sort of expected overestimation of his own abilities as a negotiator. I think that I think him and his team might have gone in with sort of unrealistic expectations for how little the US would be willing to accept and then I've also read quite a bit suggesting that John Bolton really might have thrown a wrench into the whole process. Kind of at the last minute. I don't think it's any secret or any surprise that. He doesn't particularly want to have peace with North Korea. And my understanding from an article I read I. Think in the guardian, but it might have been somewhere else is that he tacked on some demands at the last minute or convinced Trump to make these demands just before the actual negotiations started, and at this was a surprise sort of totally unacceptable to the to the North Koreans. So I think that there's a lot of you know, shared responsibility for what happened. It wasn't a totally useless summit insofar as. Fix ticket laid out on the table specific demands specific requests, which hadn't been the case in Singapore. Singapore was this kind of, you know, very, very general meet and greet. Let's celebrate our relationship sort of event, but coming out of the at Phnom, you know, it's a big setback. But at least both sides now have a more realistic understanding of where there would is actually let me just do this. When I what we're how does the president of South Korea fit into this? Because it from my read he's very important and is extremely positive forests. You kind of point out that he's been sort of treated either bit condescendingly kind of as an afterthought. How does the failure of the process in Vietnam affect his domestic position. And what do you think is rolling all of this has been? On his his domestic position is some of weaker than it was at the beginning of the process, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that the South Korean economy has been struggling recently, certainly the peace process with North Korea is the centerpiece for one of the centerpiece of his domestic policy, the centerpiece of his foreign policy, it's enormously enormously important to him that succeed, and I think that. He's the one who really jump started the whole the whole thing when you had this episode year or two back of Trumpington exchanging these dire threats and missile tests, and you know, missiles being launched, you know, flying over Japan that opened up some space, maybe a little counter-intuitively for South Korea to step in and say to take a leadership role in trying to calm things down because it was obvious that Trump wasn't able to do that. But he wasn't interested in doing that. And I think that around East Asia, you know, in South Korea, certainly, but also in China to some extent people lost a little bit of faith and their ability to trust the US. It'd be a stabilizing force sort allowed, South Korea. Take more active role. What are the sticking points? What did what were maybe more? Specifically, what are the poison pills that Bolton put in there to undermine this process in Vietnam? The. The big sticking point in. It's kind of a big general one is this idea of complete verifiable and irregular irreversible denuclearization and the US demand that North Korea completely denuclearized shut down all of its silly dismantle its facilities. Let inspectors give them a detailed list of everything they have before any sanctions are going to be removed. North Korea has come in saying we one sort of a step by step for tat approach will shutdown some research facility you lift a sanction. We will dismantle some other facility. You lift another sanction and they have proposed this as a kind of trust building exercise. Let's see if you'll take these baby steps in good faith, and then we can move on to bigger and bigger stuff. And so far the US has been unwilling to consider this graduate of their approach. Ch their demand is you shut everything down. And then we'll talk about getting rid of some sanctions, I think that North Korea is justified in being suspicious of the US when they say, you shut everything down, and then we'll lift sanctions because all they have to do is look at the experience of Libya and Qaddafi who did shut down his weapons program and got killed in exchange for it. And also, of course, we had a successful in working a deal with Iran, which trunk you know, hasn't actually has an entirely blown up because the Europeans are maintaining it and the Chinese and the Russians as well. Obviously in India, but has seriously undermines and shown that basically our commitment and our word means nothing in these types of negotiations. I think that's actually a really important point. Maybe that does overlap even in some ways, particularly understanding a Ron or even Libya. And of course, these are all very very. Different governments different regimes. And there's it's difficult to communicate about this. I think in in in the press here because some people sort of, you know, radically over correct? And they'll say, well, actually, you know, Qaddafi didn't not only was Qaddafi rational interlocutor, but he didn't even have human rights problems. And that's you know, that's ridiculous, or, you know, Iran on I would say of the three actually Ron is definitely the most complicated in terms of assessing their human rights areas. But of course, I mean, we just talked about activists an attorney who's just sentenced to thirty years in prison and thirty lashes for doing her work in Iran just this week. It's obscene an abomination and of course, North Korea. It's very well documented this sort of scale of abuses that take place in North Korea on the other hand the problem is is that in in the discourse here. It's conflicted. It's like oh. Well, if they do that here, then obviously they're rational actors abroad, obviously, they would sort of blow themselves up in a flame of glory. And in each of these cases, that's clearly not the case. These are rational, governments and leaders that want to survive, and that might be the hardest case actually convey to people about North Korea because we have such a kind of. Warped view of them. I mean, even some of the ways that we actually talk about real abuses, North Korea are very dehumanizing. It's like, oh, well, look at this other totally insane thing that they did. And, you know, look at the blue font hairdos and all of this when it's like, well, no, actually, it's extremely brutal and people are actually really suffering and then on the other hand. No, there's a strategy in place here. And and these people know how to survive, and they know how to play their position. So I I mean, first of all I gave you a lot. I don't know whether you agree with that frame or not. But I think that might be a good starting point. When you talk about their legitimate demands to talk about the ways in which the North Korean leader is actually quite different than Donald Trump for all the kind of superficial easy comparisons. And what where is North Korea coming from in terms of solidifying themselves and surviving as a regime like what are their rational, self interest positions and all of this? I mean, you're right. But that was there was a lot there in what you said just that go back to part of what you said earlier to start off with. The way that I read. When American commentators bring up North Korea's human rights record, which is very bad and trying to use that record as a justification for not entering into this peace process. Not supporting it. I basically don't think that kind of commentary is worth very much. I think that when you have human rights activists people who actually are committed to these problems into solving them talking about it. You can take that a little bit more seriously when it's coming from, you know, John Bolton or anything other Trump administration ghouls who were totally happy to support the invasion of Iraq would like to invade Iran one day. I think it's okay to say that those arguments are being made in that face. Definitely. It's also just even of it being in bad faith. There's a kind of surrealism to it where. Okay. Yes. I like knowledge that the human rights record is very bad. What do you wanna do about it? 'isolation? Sanctions demonization that doesn't seem to be improving much. Obviously, what would help up North Korea's for the rest of the world help the regime to adopt less of a paranoid stance is to be kind of integrated into the community of nations, as you know, in equal functioning member, I think everyone knows at this point that there is no military solution to this problem that anyone would be happy with Kim doesn't want war to erupt because his regime would be immediately destroyed the US doesn't want war to erupt becau- in South Korea them with were to erupt because of the ends and hundreds of thousands of people who would die as a result. It's just obvious at this point that anyone talking about starting a war is. Is in bluster right? As for. The Kim regime itself and what its interests are. The thing is really wants is security guarantees. It wants to be able to believe in a real way that the US is not going to try and overthrow the Kim regime, and it wants sanctions lifted so that it's a Konami can begin the process of catching up to rest of the developed world. Those are the two things that are really driving. And and how and so and you have a really good graph. Where you you really outline like the differences between Trump and Kim for all of the superficial similarities, and I maybe could elaborate on that. Because I think it again, the reason I brought the human rights stuff into it is because it's not like a moral justification of somebody, you know. But it's like, this isn't just like a character or mean or something this is somebody who com-, you know. That's what I'm so maybe could you kind of break that down like a lineage of this family, and and what's going on here. In terms of you know, how to understand these people? I that was one of the first things really frustrated me about the the media coverage of the peace process when it started up with this kind of easy, destroying this like very very easy comparison between Trump and Kim here to sort of brash loud buffoonish characters they both have awful hair. They're both overweight. They both see themselves little despots. And so now, we have these two clowns, you know, going to Singapore to congratulate each other and how great they are. And if you actually look at the political position of both leaders is totally different him is. In a ruling line that has controlled North Korea for decades and decades that has deepest oracle roots in the country struggle against colonialism throughout the twentieth. Century the entire political system in North Korea revolves around his family's rule. He's at the very very center of the Kim regime were to collapse. It would mean a total incomplete people of North Korean society. Whereas Donald Trump is essentially a media figure who was able to take advantage of the fracture character and the weaknesses of one of America's two major political parties to assume leadership he has no roots in the political system whatsoever. I don't think he particularly has many deeply held political beliefs. I think that his motivating forces are sort of his narcissism having people say nice things about him on television. So he's just Trump is a very politically sort of superfluous figure in the US, despite the fact that everything seems to revolve around him right now. Whereas came is, you know, totally central to the political system in North Korea and two is history. Just to Lou back to where we go from here. Relative mainly to the US and North Korea in the last couple of minutes before we go there, we talked about the really important role that the president president moon is played in South Korea. And you know, part of that my read is, you know, he represents the left in South Korea and that party, historically, even under Kim Dae Jong. And when Clinton was president they pursued something called the sunshine policy, which was definitely not as far reaching as what they're talking about now, but it was some type of diplomatic arrangement. And then the obviously the right we make real progress. You have actually you want to explain that for a second that could be helpful. I did that sunshine policy with the policy pursued between north and South Korea during the Clinton years, and this is sort of before it's sort of hard to remember that this happened because everything went so sour once Bush took office and then recreate as part of the axis of evil, but the Clinton years did see a real improvement in US North Korean relations and north South Korean relations Clinton wasn't quite able to make progress on his own, but he sent Jimmy Carter over to meet with leadership over there. And it was it was real progress by the end of the decade, people were very optimistic not necessarily that. The war was gonna you know, peace treaty was going to be signed imminently. But the things there was a base it'd been laid down to work from. And then Bush just blew the whole thing up once he named North Korea as part of the axis of evil, but sorry, you can go back to swing. No, maybe could. And then did Obama. I mean, there was this sort of approach of like, what are they call it like sort of strategic patience that he wasn't as he. Yeah. What what did Obama? Do. What was the Obama years like? Obama didn't do a whole lot. He maintained economic sanctions. I think that his efforts were really focused on a Ron that his administration's calculation was that it was more important to address around. I, and I think that he was kind of happy to punt a little bit on North Korea in part because he has found that another democrat would be handling the problem. If you told Obama in two thousand eleven no men in five years, it's going to be Donald Trump. I think there would have been some more urgency from his administration I would amount North Korea. Right. But you got he was Lee he was leaving North Korea to whoever was going to follow him. And he expected that that would be, you know, his secretary of state. What are the weeds? We contrast the kind of constructive role of of South Korea under moon. Now, these are obviously very very different positions and they have their own complexities. But is there a way to kind of top line China's role as the kind of main patron of North Korea, and then also Japan, which has its own sort of right leaning, kind of nationalist sort of insurgency or government. What are their roles been in this process? China has very complicated role with North Korea. Which is that China? Has been North Korea's major patron, but not out of anything that's much like friendship. It's been more out of fear, China and North Korea share a border or any kind of war to break out involving North Korea. China would immediately have a gigantic refugee crisis on its hands. And so trying to when Trump and Kim initially started ramping up the rhetoric and threatening to annihilate each other China was sort of paralyzed by the whole thing it actually cut down its trade with North Korea. I think by something like ninety percents to try and help the US really intensified sanctions. So it wasn't really contributing much in the way of ideas of its own wants to South Korea stepped in and got this peace process going then China became sort of a more active active player in it and its role has been as kind of. Facilitator came has traveled to China to talk about he traveled to China before focusing for Vietnam summits to talk about negotiating points to make sure that China was going to be on board with what he was proposing. And. Also, North Korea has been telling China that they see the US is a greatest security threat, and therefore would like to be a little bit closer to China this way of soliciting Chinese support. Now, apparently, they've also been telling the US that they see China as the greatest security threat. So there's a little bit of strategic manipulation happening there. But I think that as the process unfolded China has started to like the idea of peace on the Korean peninsula more than it would have initially because ultimately peace on the Korean peninsula would diminish American role the American presence in East Asia would make it a little bit easier for China to operate and China right now is really embarked on this project of becoming not a global hegemony. But certainly regional headroom on it would like to be kind of only hegemony functioning in East Asia. Right. And japan. Japan. Their government is a little more right leaning. They have not been as excited about the peace process. Their their relationships with the US is obviously much closer. They're going to be less thrilled about a diminished role in East Asia. So so far their approach has been relatively cautious as far as I can understand. But they haven't seemed to be particularly enthusiastic about it final couple of minutes in. Here's the where do we go from here question like is is this ongoing or has Bolton destroyed the process like what what are the or? I mean. Yeah. What do we what what can you expect to kind of see in the coming months? It was really hard to know what to expect because. The US is in position now where the US can dictate events these days are anymore. Like, maybe used to be able to it does not have the clout to you know, make North Korea. Denuclearize it cannot support for any kind of invasion or attack on North Korea. But the US is still, unfortunately, an indispensable part of the process, and I say, unfortunately, just because of the kind of unpredictability and volatility of the people who are doing the negotiating right now. I think that part of what makes it so unpredictable is that left to his own devices, some sort of would give away whatever you needed to to get himself a Nobel peace prize and. Frasier. It is. I don't think that would be terrible outcome for the world. I agree. I agree completely. Right. And if what it takes to get a formal end to the Korean war son into the peace prize for Donald Trump like I don't care fine. Do it. Sure. The problem is that you do have these people from the real, you know, sort of right wing foreign policy establishment people like John Bolton who's influenced seems to increase or decrease depending on the day or the week or whether you know, Sean, Hannity said positive or negative things about John Bolton on his previous show. And if those people are in a position to influence from negotiating like, they appear to have been in Vietnam. Then. Yeah, this thing is going to get tanks. Well, I think they'll good at that. I don't know. I even if the US decides could be. You know, totally unproductive like complete not contributors this process north and South Korea or South Korea, especially seem to have invested so much and opening up their relationship that it's hard to see them going back to where they were before. So I think that you're going to see I don't know what the relationship looks like if the US are ends up tanking the process to the extent that it's able but the relationship between north and South Korea is going to be different coming out of this was going in. And I think it's going to be better. Let's positive note. And is now is good time. Any I mean, I'm sure President Trump is not watching this. But there might be people who are listeners at FOX or whatever. And I think all we can say is, you know, I thought and what I've heard and what many people are saying that John Bolton has been very disrespectful and not treated you with the proper respect. And I think it's very unfair Richard night. You know, we both think you're doing a tremendous job. Frankly, unlike John Bolton who thinks you're doing a terrible job and others who have said many things, but we will say many great things about the negotiations. And I thought it was very sad. And you're doing. A great job. And, but you know lion. John or something, I don't know backstabbing, John tough stuff. John lack stab John. He's up to it. Again. He's trying to keep you from a Nobel peace prize. And could you imagine the look in vodkas face when you win that prize? I mean, the problem with. You know, I agree with what you're saying. But even if John Bolton does fall out of favor, it's not like earn ten fifteen other people just as bad waiting. Sure. Take your rice. Well, we just gotta run through all of them. It's like, Yup. You know? That's just you. Gotta get him into a Pablo Escobar mindset or he's just just everybody. No, I I mean, you know, that that is one of the real. I mean, I think more broadly. I think the instincts to white supremacy and to just kind of general oligarchy to the extent that Trump thinks about anything or sincere give rich people money and stoke and promote racism hundred percent. But I think besides that. I think you're totally right. And that this is all the media show pure Norris's them, but the shell around him is this far right extremist party. And that's another distinction in the discourse. Right. A lot still, you know, one of the main arguments, I would say between the center, and the left is how real they are about what the Republican party is. And you're totally right. I also wanted dated like yes, John Bolton is a an extremist on the right? Not like the support for the peace process coming out of the center of the democ. Critic party has been much more meaningful right on one hundred percent actually think that the Democratic Party does need to shoulder the blame for what happened in Vietnam because they have done everything that they can to undermine the peace process to denigrate Trump's outreach efforts, you know, they staged the Michael Cohen hearings on the day, the news in Vietnam. And Michael Cohen, you know, specifically address Donald Trump being in Vietnam at the hearings. So it seems obvious to me that those hearings were the timing of. It was designed to undermine Trump negotiating position in the at Phnom, which I think is honestly shameful. I agree entirely. I think that, you know, the letters from Schumer and the sort of general hand from the kind of MSNBC types were stunning. I mean stunning both. Because all of a sudden it was either just a sort of knee jerk commitment to. To literally decades of failed and actually highly militaristic US, foreign policy, or in other cases. I mean, it was just you know, I'm all for taking as many shots at Trump as you can. But I mean, if you're actually implicating something that might interfere with ending the Korean war, you might want to reassess and focus on literally the thousands, or tens of thousands of other things that you can hit the sky on without interfering with that. So I agree with you completely Richard back. He's an associate editor of 'em. Plus one read all of his writings on the Korean peace process, Richard. Thanks so much. I really appreciate your time. Thanks. All right, folks. We're going to go to the fun half. With just the boys. We have that THEO on the days that it's Thursday in Gino Jamie, does four days a week since she usually Sam goes Neil, Jamie comes in another case. But sometimes she's here's sometimes she isn't. And then, of course, you know, Sam isn't here. So what does that mean? It means it's the three boys, and it looks a little bit something like one second looks a little bit Vic burger just tweets a little bit to affix burgers of very active Twitter. Does a lot of tweeting, folks. Four. Sean entered as a board the. Four. Four. The boys. Saturdays, four apparently voice. The boys the moist. Four. Working. Saturday. There's a for Astor vs. There's as for the boys wyking Wicky. Looking golfs. All right, folks. Become a member of the majority of port today, Giardi dot FM slash become a member. That's how this show happens less than a Cup of coffee a day. Checkout. Just coffee dot co op order the majority port blend. It's a win win win win win for all concerned. Check out the Michael brook show this Sunday illicit history of Joe Biden with sat Carter. Get the whole thing patriot dot com. TM BS. We appreciate all view and definitely get your tickets. They're starting to ramp up again, we're over halfway sold out with several weeks left for the April. Twentieth. Live show the team Bs live show, the bootleg feeder in Los Angeles, special guests big was Annika, Sperry him and non Deauville. And of course, the whole Michael show team go to Michael Brown show on YouTube. Subscribe there we have a ton of clips now it's about three or four clips today. So you can get a real flavor of the show, obviously similar majority for it. But very history focused covering some different beats and of Jill really like what you get over there. Matt. Yeah. Literary hangover we talked about king Phillips war the sixteen seventy five war that people might check out. It's pretty formative for colonialism, and that sort of stuff coming soon, we're going to be talking about Oscar Wilde's the soul of man under socialism. And he has an. Tting quote, actually, bishops pull the size, Stu and also who is going to be featured David grisko of the economic minute of TM Bs fame is going to be featuring. He's actually done theory read into think on the soul of man under socialism. I have this. This is from eighteen ninety four interview with us ker wild. It's with the theater magazine says he likes Jews, he has many friends among the Hebrews thing. He thinks Panova is a very fine. Character seems to knows it was very grapes. His great. He seems to have some doubt as to whether Spinoza was really the founder of the pantheon except and then he said the conversation drifted into politics, we are all of us, more or less, socialists. Nowadays, he remarked. Our system of government is largely socialistic. What is the house of Commons? But a socialistic assembly. I think I'm rather more of a socialist. He added laughingly, I am something of an anarchist. I believe, but of course, the dynamite policy is very absurd. Indeed. So it doesn't seem like a lot of these conversations have changed a whole lot in like one hundred and twenty years. That's fascinating. All right, folks. We're going to take a break. We'll see you in the fun half. Amphora aren't folks. Six four sixty five thirty nine twenty. She in the. In it. Does it? Alpha males. Bye. Bye. Bye. Abba, males by just. The album ails of. Bye. Bye.

It's pretty hard to stop that one returned to sender on that idea, unknown, Johnny. How you been man? Oh, I've been smooth and great and cool. Awesome. Awesome. Little bit of funky. I mean, how does it feel coming back? You know, you're one of our first like four or five episodes ever. Yeah. You were part of launch week feels good. I feel great to be you know, coming back on top. It's like, you know, Mark Twain was born when Haley's comet arrived. I mean die when it came back. So maybe that's commitment to die. Okay. You know? I don't know. I thought about that. I think about all the time like when Johnny comes back. We'll know there'll be a comet coming by. Yeah. There's like some people in history who have just great commitment to dying on like cool days like didn't Franklin and Adams dial on July fourth like, the I'm not Dan O'Brien. All right. There's a there's a man who has that presidential expertise me. And he would tell you like this and Franklin was talks, right? Dan, O'Brien hardcore hardcore history guy, right? Yeah. Dan, O'Brien no relation to Jack O'Brien or Dan Carlin because that's not how names work. Well, Johnny we're gonna get to know you little bit better in a moment. First we're gonna take our listeners through just couple of things we're talking about today, such as the fact that Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman might be going to jail. We're going to check in with Fox News. See how their latest diner segment is going. This is not a diner segment where they set up an entire diner in Times Square. This is they actually went to an actual diner, Missouri to check in with real America. And the they were surprised by what they found. We're going to check out a Vic burger SuperCup, or at least recommend that you do and treat it like real news. Because I think it is we are going to look at what Muller's team what people on Muller's team are actually saying about the Muller reports since we still don't have the motherfucker. We're going to I got it, by the way. Oh, you do shit. That was on that USB drive. You came in dangling in front of go. That's on Instagram. So my private accounts. I just got add me, right? You have to be my close friends group. And then you can see my stories, we'll speak into the USB came dangling in. We're also going to talk about the spies targeting mar-a-lago. Surprising. Absolutely, nobody. But yeah. There are a bunch of suspicious activities happening with Chinese nationals in the mar-a-lago vicinity, including USB's dangling. But first Johnny we like to ask our guest. What is something from your search history that is revealing about who you are or where you are at this moment. Okay. I thought about this and something where a lot of it is just embarrassing like stuff about would like learning about bears. Since starting. The would why for me like getting going down a wormhole about is treated wood safe to use in a garden bed or pressured pressure treated, it's just so unbelievably boring, I deleted it. Because I haven't never looked at my history. Just woods stuff. What's going on with the Woodstock? I'm building a really big heavy duty garden bed. Raised raised bad. Yeah. Okay. Let's stop a four by fours. And so it's not going to go anywhere for a long time. Nice. Are you is this is this carpentry new for us? Some you've been dabbling in. I've been down in this for a long time. This is the first bed of this type of built Angus is the best plan that was ever come up with some guy. I can't think of his name. But all man, it's good. It's made by four by four xlt, and you do like a pinwheel style. So it's. So hard to describe. But it's really strong, right? And you use. Yeah. For MRs what do played on growing this bed? If I can get an instant enough. I'll probably do probably some peas and probably a bunch of well for the summer. I'll do a love okra and pry I'd plant a love oak. Now is is Los Angeles gardening. A seasonal thing. Like, you can only get it done during you can do twenty four. The annual equipment whatever that is pretty much twenty four seven gardening. Indoor weed growing up we have the second spring here, which is pretty cool. So you can grow all year round. You can grow pretty much. You can grow stuff here. It's unfair. Really? I always have to remember that. When I think about it. I talk about stuff like gardening stuff on like pod, the podcast or like anything. Like, I was a lot of people who they're in snow. Right. Yeah. You're from Minnesota. Yeah. I lived in Missouri for a while when I was first getting my wits about. About. I starting to be a married, man. I like being a homeowner in Missouri. And that shit is impossible to grow anything. They're just rocks. And I've only been there in the summer when it's hot and humid. It's tough, man. Yeah. Super hot. There's actually a really big seed company there this come to call Baker creek seeds. Yeah. I mean, it's probably easy for people. Who know what the fuck are doing their space? Oh, yeah. They have a cool. They're like real space out there hippie dudes. What do you mean by space it like would? Cosmos. Like if you look at pictures of they've they post of themselves and their whole crew. It's like they lived there living in the eighteen hundreds essentially, kind of almost Amish style the Amish did like homegrown cocaine which. They probably full-time times with homespun clothing. That was the worst search history thing the the thing here, I think is actually interesting as I looked to my YouTube history. I was desperately trying to track down a clip of flight when that actor Bruce Greenwood says to a Washington that that there's an executive buffet available. Oh, and you remember that movie? Yeah. I remember fly. There's this thing that they said that I think about all the goddamn time out for long-term with Tom Skerritt. But not Tom skirts. Bruce Greenwood which I thought was if you want this clip because he says something that I like, I repeat on my podcast all the time. I called the executive buffet. It's like the dumbest word ever, right? Says it straight face. I trust trying to hunt this down from flight. But I can't find it. But he's basically, you know, because Stenzel he has he gets in trouble with the airline Pilots Association for talking to the. And so he's the Bruce Greenwood Sahay associated he's trying to kind of butter up Denzel, and he's like you should come. We should talk me into talk about stuff. How are we going to present this the media, and he says look there's he's got that southern accent? He's like look there's a there's an executive buffet downtown at the Mariott this weekend. He just glossed over that executive buffet. Yeah. By the way, Greenwood is Tom Skerritt. Is you really not know he's not. But they say you have definitely confused ours with Tom skirt. If you were a those listeners who are not Bruce Greenwood have definitely confused the two of them will so bad for Bruce because I've been calling I've been saying Tom Skerritt for years. Yeah. It's Tom Skerritt. He used to be Tom skirt without a mustache. And but now Tom Skerritt has appeared in films without a mustache that there. They have become the same person. They look so similar hunky though mixed with Bill Macy's. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Scared us have those kind of those wild teeth. Yeah. Call those teeth. It's got that horse front. Uh-huh. Or to what have you found out about executive buffets is that just like a thing like hidden room that the Marriott offers to top line executive class talent. I guess I'm honestly, it's one of those things where I have no idea. I heard that and still to this day. I wonder like that can't be real. Yeah. That'd be an amazing moment. Where like you add a buffet goes excuse me, Mr. Pemberton, actually, come this way, the executive access to the executive buffet. Oh, wow. Anyone who works in hospitality? Let us know. How do we get the executive buffet? What is in the executive buffet? How do we achieve executive buffets premium tongs available? They're not blessed. I think I even Google executive buffet in quotes and nothing comes up. No, it's it's selects movie searches where it's like zero results. We are some henchmen finds you like at night in front of your house and be like you get into close kid. The executive buffet shit alone. For this. What what is do you think is overrated? Oh, I mean almost everything really great. I think the news is kind of overrated. At least for me. It has been. I'm taking a step back from news in general. I think I wrote down purple wisteria is overrated. Oh old on what purple wisteria Mustang wisteria? No, I'm wow. So okay. Go on wisteria, I do too. And I just found out. There's a version of white. And I was like, oh, this is a cool too. Cool turn on this. I mean, the purpose is great. But it's just everywhere. I to have more other colors of distinct purple Australia's overrated is the tree that has purple flowers. Vines you seem alive you see Milan LA. Yeah. You seem a lot. It's funny because my. Two days ago at my friend's house. And she has mysterious growing. I don't say, wow. It was coming here. Real nice. And that's I'm no own nothing. I know the word was Steria. From is expert house was really wise. They're a desperate housewife name was St. day. Lamar. Okay. That makes named a tree after that is sorry. Sorry. What is something? You think is underrated. Oh, I mean, probably tea and toast, in toast, having tea and toast together. Are really good. Okay. I was forget how good that is to have for breakfast. Like have just two pieces of toast with butter and a big like a huge Cup of hot black tea over. It's like a classic combo. I mean, sometimes the teas are temperature, and you can either tea with the toast of the same time. Yeah. Man. You're just straight butter. No preserves nothing like that do offer a little bit apple butter on one slice like they have one size. It's on just the butter as one slice. It's jerry. In butter, and preserve what kind of bread mask. Oh, it's probably like some sort of sprouted crap. You know, some of it's not like tradit- took a sprouted sliced not wonder not wonder now doesn't barbecue. No, brioche toast toast. Underrated. George benson. Underrated early alert from the GM toasts endorsed you say stock just shot through the roof. Amen penalties to England once. No. But I I do think there are certain things like Tinto's not underrated in England. But I think it's probably underrated in America. Because there's not a way to really capitalize it and like make a ton of money off of it. It's just a very simple thing you can do at home, and I it's easy to make. And so I think things like that just tend to get buried in America. And yeah, it's good. Yeah. I mean boiled egg and soldiers I feel like you could bring that over here. People like little sticks toast, and we are talking about putting baked beans on the toast, right because oh, I mean, I truly and South Africa that's eight everyday for breakfast for three months baked beans eggs and toast, had to fly toast with an egg on each and ask side of beans and cups of black tea for three months for breakfast. Oh my God. It's so good English breakfast a full English over here. What is a myth? What some of the people think is true, you know, to be false something I struggled with a lot. I couldn't think anything other than the fact that I've just learned that a lot of times people mistake people think that a septic infection is from a spider bite when actually it's not from a spider bite. Wait. What is this? It's just like because you have a cut in your skin, and it gets infected. There's a lot of times, we're doctors wound emergency room. Be like, oh, that's a that's a spider by. Right. Where's the spider? I told you I shit covered knife cut me. Right. That was probably a spider probably this animal that we all hate, even though they're awesome. Yes. So is this about advocating for spiders act for real. I must by advocate me too, man. Yeah. I'll talk with spiders heavy. I do not kill no kill haven't run a no kill shelter in my house. Of course. Oh, kill spider shelter. I protect spiders, spiders, unless you're tuned menacing. I will try to usher them away put them outside. But if I see like a black widow or something I'm not gonna have to take down you'll kill it. Well, I will take it down to the shelter. Take it down to the shelter. Finding a good home bringing over. Yeah. Okay. Great. I didn't know. I was like what do I do these black widows woodpile in the back? It's just that's right. It's a black widow. Reserve. The black widow perserve not burning logs. That's still. Sorry there. You can't see them from here. But you can't tell the difference from their files, and I should really label them one is for burning the wood ones for the widows rack. Just their arms are covered in Blackwood. That's why you should really get on. I bought a university of Richmond basketball year, 'cause they're called the spiders, really. So they have basketball jerseys spiders, and I'm like fuck yet. And I have a shirt where like their response. I think they're still sponsored by Nike, but they did a run of shirts for college teams that had Nike deal. So it'd be like Hoyas just do it or right Spartans just do it. And I haven't been spiders just doing what is it university of what of Richmond. Okay. I'm going to do that. Because I like I love there's this Instagram accounting. It's called snake insta- daily, and they put a tons of t shirts that are the most ridiculous shirts. Like, I'm a snake? Dante. Don't forget your snake at home. It's unbelievable. Like to the snake, peer. Yeah. Like real men have snakes. The snake? Daddy, mommy's out there. Yeah. But I mean, look Johnny liquor here. Just the spider shop for all your university of Richmond memorabilia needs. Me by spiders at like spider. Documentaries. Just watching spiders kill there. They are amazing killer might be better at killing than any animal is at any other thing or that one experiment where they put spiders on different psychedelic drugs to see how they made their webs. Yeah. Like LSD one was like our trip. So you can party with spiders to that proves everything. That's all I need to know. I'll ex-partners Alex snakes. I want to get a snake. I was gonna get snake far back yard because we had some mice. Right. And I was researching this. Having just like a keeping a snake charts yard snake because I was like you definitely never wanna poison. What do you call rats or anything like that? Because it's you know can be Holy Ghost. Yeah. And trapping him sucks. Because it's kinda doesn't really work. Right. So how cool would be to have a yard snake? Right. These just put out there will stay there. Well, I was wondering why house last night. Just got so excited. Well, looked at I think it'd probably might stay there. I think I read somewhere about this because I'm not the only person who's asked this question. And I found some home. I it's the funniest thing. It's one of the funniest things I've ever read Chapman rice Kevin rice there. That's the name AK's. I'm sorry. I just pulled it out right now came into my heart was right that it's a dope name. Sorry rice. That's good. Yeah. Very southern very cool. God there is something. I found a person asking this to some garden blog and a person answering it very seriously. Like, I wanna have I've got a problem with rats, and I want to get a snake out there. I got a big gopher snake? Basically, they totally totally shot it down. So that wouldn't work the fund the way talks about it. So explains it's so in depth about how just goes deep. Well, I think luckily in the Zych gang there snake gang people. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So please. If if you'll have tips for how Johnny kin use a snake? As a general. You know, rodents killer bleep tie. It's not happening because other people who live in the house of me will have none of this. You don't say. Weird. How the second. I brought this up to my wife. She's like, no, no, we're not having a backyard snake? Yeah. Yeah. I found the websites is website gardens alive. And a guy goes this have to read this. It just made me laugh so much question. I have rats eating my plums and would love to have snakes my garden that would eat the rats many snakes are indigenous to my area, and I have a wonderful blue Billy lizard in my garden, but unfortunately, no snakes. Would it be a good your body to buy garter? Or is it added pop up a gardener or gopher snakes from pet shop and let it go in the backyard. That's amazing. I mean, are they that active where it's going to be like just put trolling for rats. And then that's the other thing they're counting on it's like, it's on rat patrol risk guy explains is basically rats are really like most naked can't kill a rat. Because they're so big. And so good at rats are really good at survivor answer. Finding food little guys. All right, guys. Let's get into the news. The important news. That does not involve snakes regard. Now kind of. Yeah. I guess does snaky as parents read an administrator. So let's talk about Louis Laughlin, Felicity Huffman, according to insiders that TMZ spoke to which could just be their own imagination. They're now entering the plea phase, and they might be actually TMC's pretty well sourced. If anything they're just like really, they'll just say shit before it's appropriate. But I've spoken to lawyers. Who are like? Yeah. You can count on TMZ, actually, like none of the other tablets, but TMZ is limousine fuck up and very messy. Didn't they break the SEC? What's the guy? What's the supreme court Justice who died didn't? They granted. His retirement Alito school, you Dave. They were the first people to break that right? Yeah. Yeah. No there on that shit. They're messy, and they have enough lawyers that they know not to report fiction. Great well before this turns into ad for TMZ, and they're just like really ethical. There's something about the way Harvey Levin. I get that. He uses the strong because he doesn't want the coffee stain his teeth. Yeah. Well, that's what I respect about him. I've spoken to TV executives. They say. It's the best show on. It's the best bet. You want number one. Well, back to the operation varsity blues thing so a lot of the defendants were in court in Boston, basically because. Yeah, it's time to court for this. There's a is at the prosecutors are like not looking to be go easy on the on the defendant's here. So even if you know, if they're convicted they could face up to five years, and even if there's a plea there's a chance that they could go to prison right there. Make an example of them, or at least prove like the long arm of the law all the way into your Hollywood manse. Yeah. And I've been hurt him. I've been reading like more takes from criminal Justice reform people who are just kind of being like, you know, we're kind of like at this place with like when it comes to crimes and stuff where they're like. Well, if these people are in jail than these people definitely need to be in fucking jail. Right. You know? And of course, there is the principle of trying to be fair. And I think we're like a lot of criminal Justice people like will look. Yes. You know, there's a woman Tanya McDowell who was. In connecticut. She lied about where she lived to get her son into a better private public school. She's doing twelve years for that. Yes. And a lot of people have been like you see that they should be doing that much. When a lot of criminal Justice people like maybe tiny McDowell shouldn't even be imprisoned. Yeah. And like we need a little we need to begin. Rethinking how quickly we are to be like get them in prison since twelve years of prison for yes, also punch, the judge in the trial or something just for like the fraud aspect of it. It's crazy. And you know, so I think some people are like, you know, there are a lot of research about how the factors that go into incarceration. Not only just affect the people that are incarcerated, but the families has a reverbrating effect. And I don't think, you know, I'm not here to say like Lori Loughlin, and Felicity Huffman are innocent. But it's interesting to see how like some people are so rabid for being like Barry in jail when it's like that actually that kind of thinking kind of works against people were actually trying to get out of prison for her sentences and things like that. Either way I say fuck these two parents, right? If anything, you know, like is there a way to just publicly? Shame them have like a bunch of parents and students who could have had those spots scream at them. Right. They've been pretty publicly shamed. But they don't. But the reporting is also like they don't get what the big deal. That's amazing. She'd have to publicly drink their own urine. Yeah. Yeah. Big foreign like a hanging instead of hanging them. It's like we watched them urinated or something you have to drink it. I think. It's good that we're using this to publicize that Tanya McDowell is imprisoned like the media seems to be doing that. Like when you Google telling you McDowell her name comes up in all the stories about race. And a lot of people who are trying to find a way a solution for her cases like is incarcerating her really the answer. Because it seems like really the way the justices works his incarceration is always like the answer. Right. You know? And it's especially when it's people but advocates do especially for criminal Justice reform, like we're trying to make the Justice system more forgiving and write more, you know, less reliant. Yeah. Of course, ration- and also it's lumping Tanya McDowell in with these parents who are probably less easy to empathize with since they were gas leading their children king. They were smart. Yeah. But let's don't talk. The universities have just as much implication because they're the ones who are accepting these right, and those administrators are also, you know, on the hook for all this to six two to Tango. Yeah. Administrators and some coaches of sports that were like, not the main sport. Yeah. What I think really even criminal Justice reform. I think we need to we need real education form too because they get the way our systems running now because it's become basically, a thing that all people are if you wanna have a sort of easier entry point into the middle class like you must go to college. But we're gonna make it very hard for you. If you don't have the means to do it right college. Fuck just waving your fist at this guy. Let's check in with Fox News. Let's see what they're finding out. They went to the heart of America real America. A giant or a diner? The most American place in the world diner in Missouri to interview people about what they think about these these libs out and Holly weird. And they're green new deal asked dude named Jack a shoutout to Jack's about what he thought about about the green new deal. And here here's what that sounded. Like, Jack is an info specialist, and he really wants our children to talk about climate change. Specifically the green new deal, which you support. Why do you support it? Yeah. It's really important. We keep below to re celsius of average warming. Otherwise, the consequences are going to be devastating. How do we pay for it? Yeah. How do we pay for World War Two at the end of the day? When something is this important. Our economy's going to suffer. If we don't pay for it. You do agree with the sentiment that this is as big a. He'll climate change that is as World War. Yeah. I mean for a little over forty thousand Americans died in World War Two and climate change killing a hundred fifty thousand people per year. At least they let's talk about the money because that's a huge part of this. How are we going to pay for it? Yeah. So during World War Two one thing the government just pushed him of the cash upfront and raise some tax on some folks. But at the end of the day, it stimulated the economy so much that everyone benefited okay? So to review you favor of raising taxes in order to support the green new deal, if that's the optimal solution, economists sort out I'll go with that Jack. Thank you for your time. And finally. Cannot not believe what he was hearing diner. Yeah. It was in the dining say just randomly. They accidentally like asked somebody who's probably like a debate champion. And also like, you know, all these segments when they go to the, quote, diners and stuff are just sort of, you know, like echo chamber the restaurant. Right. And that's like a see Honda. Green do. But. Yeah, I mean socialism, and then they get to this guy. Who was like, yes. I agree. And then, but the funny thing is the only sort of rebuttal. They have is the how we're gonna pay for. All right. And he was like, okay. So. World War Two. How do we pay for that? So to get this straight you want tax high for save earth. Yes. Right. Well, he's taking using the World War Two was a bad thing. He tried to tell me that World War Two is the same. As a thing that it's totally different from what a second you trying to tell me that you don't care about veterans. You're saying. I'm sorry. No. If he was better at his job. He would have said. You trying to say something you didn't say are you saying the sun is as bad as Hitler. Okay. Moving on. Thanks, jack. Yeah. All right. We're gonna take a quick break. We'll be right back. Hey miles. Do you know why the wealthy PayLess and taxes? Yes. Because they spend millions of dollars donating to Republicans who then enact tax laws that benefit them. That's true. And that's what we cover on the daily zeitgeist. But here in the ad section. I want to tell you about another way that they save money, which is by paying tax advisers home expensive, and they help them. Find all the loopholes will no longer. We have a new solution.

Go to visor dot com slash z. The I S O R dot com slash z like east. Indoor back and real quick. I just want to recommend everybody. Check out Vic burgers, super cut of Biden close talking because it was the first time that I got some. So Vic burger by the way, he does like he's like he's I think start off as Tim and Eric's editor. Yeah. Just just become you know, he's a he's a resistance media makers, right, editor rabble rouser, dude. And he makes very funny videos edits of like, you know, news footage and shit the with like sound effects and things manipulated. But this was kind of the first time that I feel like I got real texture on the Joe Biden close talking liking visuals on it that I was like, oh that is wildly inappropriate tear. There's some shit where he's like stroking the sides of like both sides of the face of a child standing in front of him like upward. I it's like. Just. It's very strange. It's a lymph lymphatic massage child, isn't that a certain age? They'll be dumb, right. What he's doing? Smarter tomorrow. But yeah, I mean VIP burger has, you know, in addition to being funny has a good eye for details in like news, and he's zooms in on some moments of just like pure terror on the faces of some of these kids. Yeah. These kids that are just being you know, they haven't learned that. Oh, you hide your discomfort in the face of the vice president right yet? So like there's like some thirteen year old young or even younger like. Get the fuck off of me, dude. So yeah, I just had to give quick recommendation for that video on the footnotes, which ones are really good too. Those are like to me like the crown jewels. Apocalypse buckets. Oh, yeah. Salvation buckets. Whatever good. So we still don't know anything about the Molly report in terms of anything beyond what bar released at least on the record officially. We don't have anything. But some of the people who prepared it some of the people on Muller's team are now coming out and saying that they're a little bit frustrated with bars summary, right that, you know, they wrote a bunch of summaries themselves of the report that were, you know, far more thorough and actually reflected what was in there. And yeah, basically, they're implying that bars summary did not reflect. Yeah. There's been a few things like the Washington Post New York Times and NBC all at the same time had different versions of the story of like the Muller team, people are not happy with the bar summary, and some people were saying that they're like specifically they were writing the report in a way that William bar could have just taken the first paragraph of a section, right? And just released that publicly because they were trying to write it in a way to get shared as quickly as possible that account has been disputed by another person NBC interviewed. So I mean who knows about that? But the thing that is very consistent is that a lot of the people from his team have quote told associates at attorney general William P bar failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry. And that they were more troubling for President Trump and Mr. bar indicated. So that's from people who were with as they describe as sources familiar with their simmering frustrations. Yeah. And then again on a Washington Post and NBC they wanna step further. They said mothers findings paint a picture. This is. How the team members are mothers associates are describing it as the findings paint a picture quote of a campaign whose members were manipulated by sophisticated Russian intelligence operation. So I that that makes sense which is in line with every like stuff, we know to be true like based on reporting that hasn't right? And I think a lot of people they're not so upset about the collusion aspects of it than they are of like some of the obstruction things. And then some of the reporting seems to indicate that like there was infighting on the mother team between like the FBI people that were working on it. And like, the lawyers who are sort of not seeing eye-to-eye on how to exactly move forward with it. If it actually there was an actual charge. They could put together which is why they're speculating, which is why Muller kind of just left it open ended because they couldn't even sort of other team unanimously come to a decision, right? Of course, you've got Trump tweet. And right after about how it's all bullshit says the New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal. Concerning the mother report. In fact, they probably had no sources at all. They have they are fake newspaper who have already been forced to apologize for their incorrect and very bad reporting on me, which is not true. Which is not true. The I I think he's referring to a correction a correction that they issued completely at will. And not because they were being forced to do anything. They had to apologize. What are they have to polish is about I don't think they have ever had to apologize for anything ever apologize? Never be. Yeah. So we'll see we still don't know. So nothing nothing. It's never going to happen. Is that we're we're never going to find out. Why is it someone just leak it that could happen? I know right now, I mean like on the in the house like Democrats are gearing up to formerly subpoena the report, so how many people have read at this point. Who knows? I mean, I guess like twenty probably I mean, well, so how big was the team that was working on? I don't know. I I can't break it down by the numbers like that. But miles as an intelligence. Let me tell you. So it's team again. Okay. So there are people in the financial crimes that was seven people another nineteen. So I I would I would estimate on sixty three people have read. Okay. Yeah. Leak and just like they'll be cool thing. Fuck. I just did it remain stage at Coachella guy who leaked the mother of all. After I get out of prison. I'm going to go to Coachella you'd be like what's his? Manning manning or? Chelsea doesn't. Yeah. The great does she go to Coachella? I don't know if she went to. So I haven't been to Coachella, but she could be there right now, actually almost definitely keep our fingers crossed yet. But like the desire to have it leaked, or you know, for the report to be released is eighty percents. So a lot of even Trump loyalists are saying, you know, we're totally with the president. We blew him implicitly. But we just like to see the report just, you know. Well, again, I I think for the people who actually took what the White House said about the report is being true or the summary. True. Are like oh, hell, yeah. Throw it in my family's face or whatever. And even Chuck Grassley just tweeted like, very dryly. I support releasing the Muller report. Oh, really in one too. But I mean, let's be real though, he might actually think that the document exonerates the president. So who knows where Chuck Grassley actually falls on that? I mean, if it does fucking still release it. Everybody deserves to read it. Let's get it out there. Right. He's the sacred weapon. This little stack of papers. Alright top marine generals are letting internal emails leak. They're doing the Lord's work. We'll specifically general Robert Naylor, the commandant of the Marine Corps. They're reporting that he was behind a couple of emails that leaked over the last week because he's trying to bring attention to the fact that the Trump's border wall fantasy is having a negative impact on the Marine Corps and their families as well. Just being like, this is so this is just bullshit like it's affecting all these other things and pulling our budgets and directions. We don't need to as as Newsweek look at them doing some good for once the letters underscore the fiscal challenges. The service is facing as it struggles to support security operations at the southwest border while quote, unplanned, unbudgeted line items, plagued the generals fiscal agenda, and the general like in these emails are starting. It's an unacceptable risk to Marine Corps. Combat readiness insolvency and when. Asked why Nellor would allow internal memorandum's to leak to press outlets? One defense department source expressed bluntly because he didn't want the marines and families at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina to get fucked fucking quote from this person, they're insider, and you know, what they're pointing to is like the damage from hurricane Florence in North Carolina like the base is still operating, but they have yet to actually secure the funding for repairs and things like that in because all this money's going to moving like to get troops to the border and things like that. It's affecting other military, exercise and things like this. And they're like, yo this is such a fucking distraction from nothing, but build a wall around that base. Yeah. Case all solves all your problems problems. Well, fight the seaman we're gonna fight the hurricane. We're going to vomit. That's basically. Yeah. I got something for you. Hurricane like, the Mexico while doesn't sound that crazy to us at this point. Because we've heard it one hundred times before. Yeah, I can see NBA we're building Sam sites along the coast just fire rocket artillery at the storms. Well, I mean that is a way to use the military industrial complex to solve global warming moving onto mar-a-lago as the president likes to do. There are spies targeting mar-a-lago. I like seen a story that they stopped a woman with a bunch of like data or now, wear rabbits rabbits, bunch of rabbits. Woman with a ton of rabbits trying to get into Marlon holding them all to the president. Or like gang gangs in New York style. The dead rabbits on a stick or something behind trying to you guys interested in these pelts or not from a time machine. Some of the presence that have been given two presidents are wildly somebody who gave the president a grizzly bear. Once like, there's just one I think it was a chair made of a grizzly bear. Maybe oh, why it shit anyways? All Dan O'Brien. Yeah. I don't know in such a throat is all right. All right. Dropped some fucking. Yep. Kooky president gifts right now. But so I I hadn't like fully read into this until of the past couple of days. So there was already an FBI investigation into a bunch of suspicious shit with multiple Chinese nationals doing business in the area of mar-a-lago, basically that they suspected were you know, spying on behalf of the Chinese government a link to massage parlor owner will. So then the Miami Herald as this are digging into the owner of the massage parlours where Bob Kraft gets jerked off. They they did a report revealing that she was actually selling access to the president to other Chinese nationals in the area, and basically like and also had weird ties to the Chinese government and potential spies. Right because she was like working for some foundations that were like about like Chinese American business something some writing, but all intelligence or like those are fronts to get like. We're wealthy Chinese people under the auspices or the guys of being investors business people, and she's all over the place in pictures with Trump's she's just like constantly around him because the the massage parlor, if she started the ones that then Bob Kraft like all the investigations went onto she didn't. She didn't own that when she used to. And then sold it, right? It's crazy. Yeah. So, wow, you know, it sets she's doing well. Yeah. No, she's they do call her a massage parlor entrepreneur, which is no it's a good get your money, but don't traffic humans. Right. You know? So earlier this week a nother Chinese national was arrested trying to enter mar-a-lago with a bunch of malware. She has like wait is that clothing you at the mall. No now. Oh, I call. It malware. I like that. Just like pictures. Malware. Yes. The ors. Julia. No, she was stopped tried to enter the club with a bevy of electronic devices, including thumb drive infected with malicious Mel wear and she had like two, laptops or phones. It sounds li- knows what's all this shit. Oh, I'm a east sports thing. Yeah. Make some make a cake with a bunch of drives in or something. Yeah. No, she legal legends here. She was not good at whatever she was trying to get all 'cause she came and kept like asking around like, where's the Chinese American party? And they were like others. No party. What are you talking about? And she like had the stuff like in her hands was not not a well executed plan. But it just seems like every time to go back to gardening. It's it's like every rock they turn over. There's some wild shit going more Roly police underneath. Good police wasn't that thing. Like, she showed them ID and stuff. But then they like because her English wasn't good. They kind of felt awkward, and that's how she also got through. Because they're like I her name kinda matches with someone. That's a member. Right. I think she was asking specifically for another member. And so because she was asking for another member they were just like, oh, well, they're both Chinese. So they probably know each other that'll trick when you call placing a five point of bullshit, someone will call up, and I said, yeah, I spoke to Mike. We don't have a Mike here. We have a. Ahmed? Oh, yes. Brother. Michael just. Yeah. You're you're fishing for a little definitely he said, I wouldn't have to pay for installation. Yes. Told me that. Oh my God. Why are you accusing I spoke with Matt just now look I just want to get this installation done. I'm sorry. I have my my sick kid, and my okay, I understand, sir. It's just that. Matt usually is an authorized to give discounts is it's it's just curious for me to understand. We'll come just telling you this lady told me, I just have to get this done. Okay. Okay. Okay. Come on. Come on. Yeah. But she showed to Chinese passports said she was there to go to the pool, then laptops. Yes. And then at the next like she had a pullback with laptops, like Christ. This fully sounds like spies like us a homeless person. Right. This is like a person you see on the street who they basically just let it in a crater like a street critter. Yeah. It does. Ops which broken laptops in a Behan letting these. Kishen bright. Like in my I spy duffle bags shoes. Like not match. A bunch of red flags they missed here. She's like, let's that camera on your just nuts. It's a it's a necklace. Throw. It does seem like there's a chance that she's not the top secret. Great spy that the headlines might have indicated that she might just be right? Somebody who got the wrong idea for a meeting or something or she's like an old elderly person who's a tech hoarder. Ryan. I could also see someone who's just like what's Mel aware. I don't know. I found this. Thumb drive. And I downloaded the app when the person called me and said I needed I had to security risk on my windows operating system. Yeah. But I mean, the intelligence communities been thrown out red flags like a scarf education since two thousand sixteen so we know something's going on. Or is this spy game just lower because our countries is like so out of whack and like the leadership is so dumb. It's like, well, I guess we can use our our be strings buys now. Just like he team. This is like the level they've gotten to there's like, yeah. Bring your cousin whatever just have arms. Right. I can carry a bag full tops in outwear. I mean, the leaks. Are happening. Incidentally, like people like you get used summarize source who's just like a dude from Oklahoma who happens to be there. All right. We're gonna take one more quick break. We'll be right back. Technology truth brought to you by Geico. Truth. You will certainly send any text. Joe supervisor to your supervisor what's Janet's fangs? Did she lose a bet with a weed whacker? Oh, Sint, wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Go fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. And we're back and apparently the department of Justice is getting involved with the net. Flicks V Spielberg showdown over whether net flicks should be considered for the Academy Awards. Yeah. Well because. Yeah. The academy and pass of Motion Picture Arts and sciences Cadman. Yeah. They are considering a rules change or were. I don't know. There was being floated that they're considering rules change. Because of what you know spill it was like, I feel like streamers shouldn't be allowed to get an award and so- Spielberg. Yup. That's you know, I think I've his voice really boring anyway. So the department of Justice, basically, it was just sort of saying you better not because you could be this could be an antitrust violation. So they said in the event at the academy in association that includes multiple competitors in its membership establishes certain eligibility requirements for the Oscars that eliminate competition without pro competitive justification. Such conduct may raise antitrust concerns. And one of our writers jam McNabb was just sort of like kind of like this is weird. Because usually antitrust things are about like things that harm consumers. But I guess the department of Justice Justice was saying if the rule is written in such a way that it could hurt the film's sales than they could actually consider it a Sherman act violation the Sherman act doesn't doesn't movie half to open an theater to be considered a motion picture does. But it can open in like ten theaters or something and then just go right to net. Flix Ernie of those movies didn't even actually opening any theaters Roma had Rome opened in like a like a few theaters here. I don't know maybe more than that. Well, definitely. But I think that's what it is markets department of Justice like William bars, a huge fan of Roma. You also. Yeah. A big quarrel fan is a huge gravity t to. Yeah. It's pretty wild. But I mean, look fill a good film is good film. It doesn't matter where you live on the political spectrum. Yeah. But it's basically so they're saying it would be anti-competitive for them to like suddenly start pushing pushing Netflix type shit out of the yet. It just like circle the wagons and be like, oh, actually, you can't you can't participate in this thing as a move to protect the existing powers to just get the awards or whatever doesn't the Cami only like crap. Anyway. So it's like, yeah. Well, things were like the kademi so terrible. It's in Chris mazing writ. How bad here's movies at one best picture that five years ago. You like what movie was that? I didn't see that. No one saw that. But it's the best picture. Yeah. Yes. It's like it fits all the. They're like, oh, you weren't invited to this. Shitty party. Right. And you're like, oh, I know I don't want to go, but you know, foam oh. It is what it I mean? We all can agree that king's speech. You know, maybe at the time. It didn't seem like it deserved it. But like we've all watched it so many times since then we all know the lines by heart. The you know, the artists the artists. Yes. Classic relaxing afternoon. I put on the artists. I love to watch the artists a silent black and white film. Do you know anyone else? Those on actually been like, I think artists is good. And I think crashes good. I'm sure there are people out there. Do you personally? Have you do personally know anybody? Jay. But you know, I'm sure like there's some contrarians who have that take a lot of old white men who vote on the Academy Awards. But yeah, anything that makes it seem like the power of motion pictures. Gus. It's going to save us. All yeah. Like the artist or white people are gonna solve racism, those are the two krypton urge the to steroids for movies, Oscar, you're were just British people. I think yeah, we're just accents. We should get the British out of the cabbie in general should be. It should be a year ban of British actors working in America. They took her job. Ozzy's man. Get out of here says they can act and their generations of people who are getting into acting now we're just doing it for the shine. All the all these are just like like this perfect beautiful person. Yeah. I go back. Stay there. Probably aren't Australia's still. Yeah. I think the best both worlds Australia, the greatest country in the world. You should start a new campaign, man. I just want to have to I'm gonna have to move to Australia. I think take their jobs. Yeah. Okay. Like to play that game. I just want to take the low the lifestyle, right? Because you can't like have Australia's California as a country, and you can also dominate our motion picture industry. Non-roma far pick one. Yeah. Also, the spiders over there. They got to read those fighter. See I might feel differently about spires. Valid in Australia them shits folk and take take you away. That's there that eats a bird out of mid air. Yeah. Yeah. That is less. You haven't seen that man? This is going to fuck your day, some big a lighter and a small bird. But. So. Yes, I'm sorry. Yo Australian Goliath spider. Yeah. Yeah. Humans hand. Spiders, fuck outta here. Go I. Sorry. My I do go to guard. I do like Xena. Get out of our country. I'm coming wanna come with. I want to come with. Here cannot come with. You can't you can't live here and towing creamy with you. Senate the bird eating spider, yo and Goliath bird eating spider. Fucking joke. Oh, also, please hit me with any cool spider videos. I gain cause I watch all of them. I promise you that. There goes any someone to do this weekend? Let's talk a little knows ex. Yeah. Because since we talked about that song that song is like been number one on streaming services. Credit, but I'm going to take most of the credit for bringing it up. I'll take the remaining eighty percent. No. But I like obviously them kicking it off the billboard charts. Like. Oh, yeah. That's that's why no about it. Right. And you're not on tick tock. I don't know what that is. Talking about. Yeah. I mean. That it caused great waves and many takes from across the internet. And most people were like, okay, I'll just did this 'cause race right? Felt like this trap song had no place there. Meanwhile, but they hid behind these like, oh the their country elements weren't there. And you know, we played some of the things that have been on the charts that I think you could also argue might also lacking country elements whatever, but then it also had support from like legit country musicians. Who are like we liked this crossover hit because it's good for the John rea- it exposes people to John RIA. And what the fuck is the problem? Well, they are billboard isn't have a real problem now because the remix of old town road is about to drop none other than country legend Miley Cyrus is dead. Billy Ray Cyrus is that his name. Yeah. Miley Cyrus is dad Billy's name. Cool B R C. I know don't break my heart, Mike break. But yeah that he's doing a remix with little non sex for old town road. So how are they going to? What are you gonna argue? Then what is going to be Tim McGraw? 'cause he didn't he has that song truck? Yeah. I've heard that. No the song truck. Yeah. I think it's Tim McGraw. The members my fault for not having heard that. Yeah. It's a great song the first lyric, and that song is little Wayne bump on the ipod ocean. Okay. That's that's a number one country sign up and on opposite track star like Louis and truck where you hear the lighter flick like. Not that tight this dumb country song about the lyrics, and the most typical obvious country songs ever there except for and he's talking about low ways named wrapping a little Wayne from the start of it. Like the idea that like the country is separate from hip. Hop is so rich sober dicusss. He's it's funny because Billy Ray Cyrus. He tweeted at little dogs X on Wednesday said at little nauseous been watching everything going on with old town road. When I got thrown off the charts Waylon Jennings said to me take this as a compliment means doing something great only outlaws her outlawed. Welcome to the cook. Oh, that's wait. So he break, you heart. Got bumped off the top rap charts. Top rap song it made it to number one on top. Yeah. Yeah. Went right up against. I think you and I t y. No, I think I guess I don't know was achey Ricky heart took off the country. Things was I have no idea. Just don't think you might be like some wack. Hip hop remix or something he has done. Hip hop remix us before and they are not good. No wonder Miley grew up like this. I refuse to listen to this song until tomorrow or over the weekend. Save the space in your brain. Yet says bass my brand, let's let's call it that. Okay, Lona Zack is currently number fifteen on the overall billboard top hundred will this that I think is under two minutes. Yup. Good for him slapped him. In the face to country music. That's right. Is that what did you think? I was saying I don't know, man. Let's talk about Kranj miles told me today that Hines was releasing Kranj thought it was cranberry ranch. I looked him. The foot so miles Hm Cranach is not criminal it isn't. And again, you know, Johnny you, look very confused. What we said this. Okay. Because you know, there was mayo Chup when they mixed up mail and catch up, I don't know about a lot of things. I guess that's about it. Okay. That's fine. Doing doing good thinking actively try not to learn about a lot of things. Great. I think that's a good good American attitude. So they had male and catch up bottled together as one thing, right? Then they did mayo must which is male and mustard mixed together in a bottle, then they did mayo Q. Yeah. Hines barbecue sauce and mayonnaise mayonnaise mixed up in a squeeze bottle. And that was where we left her like, okay? I think I think we're fine with all the the hell spun mixtures and now cut to Kranj which is not cranberry ranch, but catch up in ranch mixed together. All right. Let me just put it out there. They have that KR a in red like that is the ketchup part. Ketchup doesn't have an RA after the K also doesn't have less. Well, they're just trying to balance fuck off Hines. She's you see you've upset him. Jack doesn't like symmetry. He likes. What's true? I won't was true can't ship. It should be called cancer a rich up. Yeah. Makes you do. Oh. Burgers, when do you ever mix? I mean up until now I got the male must. I got the cake. Kennedy really get the mayo Q milk. You make sense. Like, I don't mind that Harry or whatever like if it were on like some kind of barbecue like sandwich or something. But the but the catch been ranch I've never been like you'll mixed. I Rancho put the catch. You have to be a serious ranch devote like because because the that's that suggests using ranch as a sandwich topping instead of a salad. Topping right, right. Oh, yeah. For people who are like ranch gang for life. Right. I mean, he's a lot of people a lot of people will be like you ever try that shit dipped in ranch like pizza. Wrench. Well, then wasn't there? So I think hidden valley won't put out like the mix of like pizza sauce with ranch as thing to do. Or I heard maybe rumors. See, I'm like, fucking tow dream. No. Yes this habit because yes, I remember Nathaniel fern all the writer. Why was somewhere at and he basically brought my attention to this. Brought it out ranch dipped pizza flavor on even know what that is pizza and ranch the combo that inspires passionate everyone now that they're together one rich creamy dip out of the third thing. Oh, so it's a dip used that evokes pizza with ranch. So sort of like when Lay's potato chips made like the flavors that are just every flavor torito's to that floor. It's this is buffalo wings chips. It's almost like somebody trying to make like coffee that you brew that already has the cream in it once brewed or some it's like, that's you're you're you're making a skip a step that like nobody needs. Just pour hot. Milk over the grounds. That's what you'll have. You'll have done that. No. I bet you could do oiling old milk or something that wasn't right. Actually. I don't know like anyone ever into the beans like you pour over a hot non water liquid over the beans to you know. Oh, sure. Well, that's my myth. What's that was my math? Yeah. You can't do that. It doesn't work to do milk. As the is the thing if all right just here. What if when you turned on the water in the faucet to get ice water ice cubes came out of the water faucet? Two-man right because it's like million dollar idea heading off problems. We solve over he needed that solved. That's my love about we go like a place, I can outdoor restaurant. They have like that big thing filled with iced, you get the wire out of. Yeah. 'cause it melts so you can get the water rail, but to put ice in it just put fucking water in it, and you can add ice. They can't on like the sun melting the ice. And then you get these colder water rather than like, I can't stand the whole energy for a face change. You're not even going to use. Wow. What do you think about urinals, you guys ever experience? I mean, I've worked bar gigs. And you just putting the fucking ice. Get rid of it is it is that what it is. I thought it was the thing where I'm courage is people to piss on the ice mill. It's easier. It'll melt putting cheerio into train a kid. Yeah. Or I don't know like when I used to do like manage bars at raves and shit at the shrine a Shrine Auditorium. We used to like just dump ice at the end of the day. You could put it in the you. You don't wanna flush it because then you didn't want like whatever deal with that. But if you put it in the urinals in people's pissed on it'll melt, right? I don't know. That's my experience I've used to throw ice in there just to get rid ice at the end of the dumb, but I'm gang. Let us know. I think it's like a skies. You saw it at raves. I've seen it at Chateau marm mall. They they do it like always there's always ice in their. Maybe it's like a drug thing. Maybe like, it's a smell thing that makes sense to me maybe people who are on a lot of drugs like to pee on ice. That's that's my theory like pissing on ice this thing on a dirt. It's like, it's it's interesting. Wow. Maybe I was just not realising. Why people were doing I was just throwing ice away in the urinal because I had seen in a urinal, and I interview saying like it's easier because it use it as like a urinal cake because people will just pee on the ice, and is cheap and readily available and then when they urinate on the ice melts in it'll just flush away the urine. Oh, there you go to flush to free flush. Yeah. Flusher? It is versus me just being high and cutting corners never minds cake. Classic life is I got yelled at by the security guard because I dumped a bunch of ice out in the parking lot. And you can't put that. Right. And I'm like, it's water my man. And so I started going to the bathroom and throwing it in there because I was using a visual reference to that thinking. That's what it was anyway. Wow. Look how we complete our memories. There you go. We'll johnny. It's been a pleasure. Having been pledge pledge pleasures all mind d. Where can people find you? You can find me on the podcast live to tape. Otherwise, you know on the internet under my name. Alright. So on all those places. And is there a tweet you've been enjoying? Yeah. Enjoy the tweet from my friend. Kyle Kinane just said something about L A stands for leaf blowers. Always. I get really frustrated with leaf blowers because for one they are technically illegal. They are legal. Yeah. I just found that out and there's vying three leaf blowers on the black market along with some yellowcake. I just felt so good to have someone also. Oh, yes. This thing. Oh, your home in the daytime. What are they? How do you use a leaf blower legally? You're not supposed to use it within. It's fifty feet of a dwelling, which is basically impossible. Why wait why is that because they're down to two stroke motor? That's really pollutant. And also sound is is terrible. So you ever walked by one of those? It's like walking past. Like to me. It's like oh wind. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. The fucker Gardner supposed to do their shit. Then I think people have traditionally have been gardening for many thousands of years using a Rake's. Yeah. But leaf blowers are officiant though. I just feel like thicker fucking with gardeners. You know what I mean? I guess he's the battery powered shit, then battery pedal ones are are less pollutant. They don't give off gas. So is that what they're supposed to do? If like you're out here. And there's trying to switch to the battery version, which should and also they don't they're not as loud right again. These are all like in my mind. Yeah. Lawnmowers always. But also the leaf blowers they strip off topsoil makes things more healthy, we stir up all kinds of pollutants all kinds of. I've had shit my mile day just from a leaf blower. No don't lie. Ryan joe. I was just it was leaf blower miles. Did you cry about Biden? Yeah. Because guys it's been doc st-. That's what I call. Dr. People find on Twitter and Instagram at miles a gray. What is a good submission actually from zai-qing at meal Baptist Craik, you'll Baptist legit. A Baptist minister who was into the show brought my attention to a Mike Huckabee tweet because you know, what? Mike Aki kind of figured out a bit of a joke here he said, so he's actually a Mike Huckabee tweet is just heard MSNBC pays Rachel maddow's seven year. The average salary for garbage truck drivers forty thousand is delivering garbage where the one hundred seventy five times more than hauling it away. Okay. See that was that's a joke. Yes. 'cause that's the first joke. He's ever written word is a joke. I don't know who wrote that. Right. Don't know who wrote that. But you know, what? That's he's. I bet he could do it. I trying for a long time moving. I think he's one for like. Seven thousand maybe he's written like a lot of jokes that don't that aren't miss. I mean, I've I'm not gonna live been going on the road and someone who's material. Right. Yeah. Like that left. The road to this summer. Minds me, I'll be on the road July fifteenth and the nineteenth and twentieth in Iowa, Chicago and Minnesota check it out my dates and my website, Johnny Pemberton dot dog. Okay. Is that really website? Someone stole my name. So it's funny that I thought everything preceding that was the joke up until you said the website name, and I'm like, wait. It's all real I had to make it a joke. So otherwise, I I'm shamelessly self promoting myself without being ironic. Oh, no, no. It's what the whole show which has album. What's your it? Funny, boys. So we don't know if it's real and it's of prank phone calls to corporations called this call recorded for quality assurance available on Spotify. All phone calls with corporations this guy. This guy. What are not this guy is joking around. Can. Oh, great. Call my bluff. Data race all this shit. Man. It's just a joke. Also, another tweet I like is from at Bobby. And it's just okay. Because look, you know, Joe Biden he's under the microscope now. So a lot of people have been finding pictures and things if you recall the image from. Yeah, yesterday's show was him with a bunch of bikers with a biker lady who says this picture for. I don't know whatever this one is. It's it's a photo of Joe Biden with the family and the Cavs. You just says, sir. But if you look closely Joe Biden has this little young baby. Just by the dick. I the fucking gripped by the crotch. Seems like a thing where someone told him to do this. And he's like mindless, it looks like he's shaking the baby's dick like as a hand. Put her there. It can't be right. This is a very Ewing. Ewing, you're own child that way because like just need like you need to hold onto some. But that's right. That's one hand. I think that's why getting my theory is I honestly think Joe Biden treats everybody like they're his grandkids. Right. Do you know what I mean? But still like metro do that say great like that's that is I don't know. Algae a funny s photo. Yeah. Like my dad holds me like that. Right. Two. Chasing Gilbert tweet. I enjoyed is. Jason Gilbert said everyone is cut Joe Biden some slack. He comes from a different time when you head to sniff a woman's hair to make sure it was not concealing and. Cases. It's tweeted, we all know that jokers real origin story was that he works as comedians, but that his edgy humor. No longer played well in college kids. True. Yeah. College kids new get less up tight. You follow me on Twitter. Jack underscore O'Brien. You can follow us on Twitter at Daly's guys. We're at the coast on Instagram. We have Facebook page in a website dailies.

"The ocean say anything. This is not the show right now. His father. Well you never you guys always say about the show and then you use it yours at because Cameron is frantically turning the KNOBS. When when on camera makes a face like I make that's never good? There's there's a piece of equipment back there that I've been told never to touch and cameras touching that. It can't be good because I know that that's a that's A. That's a under normal circumstances. That equipment should not need to be touched. Scott Glen fucked up Scott Glen. He's also the father. There is also in the daredevils. Yeah I sent it. Oh my God cameron. What are you doing what I'm not pulling the cord? I'm sorry guys I can't work like this. This is due by Friday a weekly challenge. PODCAST with Merlin. Man Alex Cox Max Templeton. This week's challenge say Grab Gob Glob. Grod hello what's up. How the Band Fan Club The band demanders the main. The Band Amanda Maryland. Are you watching the impeachment hearings. Yes with thing. I'm GONNA commuted second. I got to turn this off hanger like right now. I think I can hear it right now. I know you've turned it down. You can't hear it no it's off. Can you explain lake I have to say like I've almost completely filtered this out I'm tr- I mean I just I don't know I just I'M GONNA ask your bad faith questions while you play with cards is that were doing all right. No no all right. What do you WanNa talk about? I'm sorry go ahead. Don't be cranky with me on our show your the mave one okay. I'm sorry mad. Asked me a question. I'm not cranky. You son of a bitch asked me a fucking question. Asked me anything house Lizard Asked me about the impeachment hearings with good faith. What okay? The last. The big story that I heard was that there's there's the whistleblower that came forward and there was the rand Paul was gonna say the whistle blower on there was a lot of drama and then someone false false got named as the whistle blower on twitter Donald. Donald Trump. Junior was trying to out him but it wasn't the right Guy Right. I think not well there. I mean they have they have the folks who are elected have decided to defend trump. Don't really have anything of substance to say. I mean the basically. They're saying he did it. But it's okay okay. Because he's the president. He's allowed to do that. My my analogy for that is often that yeah. It's legal to own a fax machine. It's but it's not legal to hit someone with it until they're dead in order to send a request for extortion with the fax machine while you're hitting until they're dead right now. That was that was a while back. So the the two things. They're focusing on very heavily because it's really meaning like four days ago. I don't know I don't know I have that. Threat is just. It's because they used to say Archer Classic misdirection this direction. What they've got is we have to know who the whistle blower is and they've got process that's really all they got? Isn't that a very. Isn't that a very like two thousand and one thousand nine feeling though like this thing the happened last Friday and now it's like it's already like I can recall back then so that was said on twitter. Today they were like do you guys remember a week ago when apple launched its like major streaming streaming platform and it already has a distant relic of forgotten past. Did you see. Did you see yesterday. Now let me tell you something funny. I have been in not by the particular design but I've been looking at twitter lasts just because it makes me happier but apparently I missed this whole Mac book pro thing until this morning which is very rare. I'm very online usually and until I had to podcast pop up in overcast that are about the new macbook macbook pro. I had no idea. Isn't that odd Marco guy want it seems like a press one. Yeah Yeah. He's very very excited about it now. He's got the functional highground Murmur Demo all units yesterday. Yesterday the news came out that a woman who's fairly high up in the trump administration heavily faked her resume and also faked herself off being on the cover of Time magazine and as usual with people who fake themselves being on the cover of Time magazine did a really bad job of it. And it's like you know that's the kind of thing where when I was a kid kid when I was say a teen. That's the kind of thing you talked about for two months right back to something like you know even even not as big as Iran. Contra you go back something like the Keating the Keating five or whatever you go back to any of those things and look all anybody talked about of course the classic example is the Tan. Suit you you know or holding the coffee. While with saluted that kind of thing led the news even in mainstream channels for weeks and weeks and weeks so yeah I take acupoint man. It's fucking ridiculous. I mean how mad can trump really get if you fake yourself on the cover of Time magazine. He didn't do that or are you talking about it if he did he had the right. He has the civil war memorial for the fake Civil War Battle Golf Course Oh God that's still up. Oh Yes oh do you. Do you know what I'm talking an sensor time we need people we need people like David Farren whole we need people obviously. We'll summer summer like Ben Collins like actually find Burger kind of people who like track down or God bless. Oh Shit. What's the guy was the guy the Guy Daniel Dale like the poor Daniel Dale Cambridge in your beat being? It's not just the Kessler sitting around assigning. Pinocchio like fucking Daniel. Dale is in the trenches at every speech going. This is the fifth time the has misquoted. The number of God what it's like. Oh God pushing up a hill no thank you but thank God there are actually five. We'll try like David Fair whole with the he's heavily covers things like trump properties and businesses and gripped. And but they've tracked down so many tracked down the fucking Time magazine that's hanging he crowdsource he. Can anybody help me find this time magazine. That supposedly framed in one of his golf clubs and they found it and they're like no. Here's okay so it looks like Shit. That's not how a Time magazine cover. Looks and here's the cover from that actual week. I feel like I'm losing my God. Damn it had like boy the edge from U two on it or something right and he shot himself to. It might have been the lady from. Titanic I'm not sure I don't do titans. The time has a Mug that says you know world's greatest boss he didn't actually earn so anyway. Yeah Four Pinocchio 's you're not the world's greatest grandfather I don't know man. Can you still get yourself into that head. Do you remember early on in the trump. Will I remember. I got this very strongly when he was. I got this bigly. When he was running very strongly very very bigly when he was running for president where I'd go holy Shit? Donald trump like fucking red-faced blake. Baboon from Clinton is running for president incident. And I go. That is so weird. I mean it is so weird. See it's like I don't know what you'd call it but code switch of like this absolute fucking dufuses so now. He's like being seriously covered by the media. And then I could get it in in the first year of his presidency. I can sort of especially right when I woke up in the morning and I look at the news and I go. What what the fuck? That guy from the apprentice is God damn president. I can't really get. I can't get there anymore now. I'm just like I just the whole country's broken. It's it's our fault and I know I I I. Yeah it's it's the for my version of that was so many mornings where I would have a very similar experience. Of course I'm looking at my fucking phone first thing in the morning. Ip and then. I grabbed the phone. Let's be honest. I look at the phone log being and then and I'm like Holy Shit especially during there were times in the run-up to the molar stuff and really in the Manafort and Flynn days. When he was saying in in I- he would say the most ridiculous things in the the stupidest way and so going back and listen to this wonderful l'affaire series on the Muller report that I highly recommend people and hearing and hearing them read the tweets tweets it for years and also for years people have corrected? They try to make it sound. They've they've read over his misspellings. They re which it shouldn't matter. I shouldn't care but I do. I do and like here. You know a given given his service a very strongly men and insect call the shit. Yeah no no. It's it's hard hard to get as worked up but I had the similar thing and then my lady and I would just be like every morning. It was still difficult to believe it was happening every single morning. We're like can you believe. Can you believe this I still. I'm broken enough inside. This all still seem so horrible to me it. I'm past that. I think where I am right now. How emotionally with it as it used to be used to wake up and be like man fuck this like this is crazy like fuck that guy and now I'm just like fucked me like the came on me on honestly I really really do better? Max I mean I know it's like fuck all all of us right now. Yeah like we all did this. This particular guy the wonderful David Roth. I don't know if he's found a new home home at New Republic after deadspin but his latest thing. That just went up is covering a photo of God who all is in this picture. Oh my God okay. So it's Giuliani trump Bloomberg Clinton Joe Torry from the Yankees and Billy Crystal and the title is vainglorious attorneys go golfing. And it's such such you guys are with me on the whole David David Roth thing right. He's great describe. This is the way that he rates. And that's what we have here. Giuliani far left looks as ever as he has somehow been spilled into his clothes. Turn such that he is grimacing towards a camera that no one else is facing trump is halfway into or out of grin and sagging to leeward like the butter sculpture left out in the sun. A head shorter and directly to trump's let Bloomberg is trim mirthless and more deeply Tan than any public official has officials right to be bill looking at this point embarked Vegan glow up and so it looks jocular and fluffy shorts and a Pastel golf shirt with implausibly. Girth some sleep anyway. Looks like I think a lot about like. Where will I go when it's not safe to be in America anymore? I think I've said this on the show before but I was talking to some of my colleagues colleagues would worked on like the Obama campaign after trump got elected and some of them were. Were even more freaked out. Some of them were really freaked out and they were looking talking about this people feeling like like I think I could be a target so incorrect. Yeah Yeah I said to one guy who I really. I mean like a very very smart guy. Obama alum who I really look up to an and not a panicky opera hand-wringing guy like a very cool analytical guy with a lot of experience in politics and and I said what really what do you think the chance is of that. They'RE GONNA like round people up or target them or do legal investigations or whatever and he was like fifty fifty and I was like whole I was like what the fuck that really scared me because I had been more sober turns out I was right. I mean they're not really competent enough to do that but But I was thinking like oh where will I go when it's not safe to be in America. Have you guys had that thought trained at all. Oh Yeah and my one of Mike. Boone of my big ones was Bolivia Bolivia mountains and cool hats cool. Yeah because I was like 'cause I was like these are like these are like politic. Pretty pretty relatively politically stable boring countries. Like I like I was like looking at like central and South American countries that I like Costa Rica's cool no standing military. You know but man that's just out the window That's no good now and so the thing was getting sad about this Did you you see. Have you heard the coverage of what they're what the kids are calling gropers in. Yeah Yeah Merlin. The what I've heard is like there's like I read this one thing that the speed civil war happening in the trump supporters. Yeah there's A. There's an article in slate yesterday about this. Yeah so basically So you know Don Jr. do you groper is now I do not know what gripe I learned. I learned what Great Britain tell the people who've rippers. If Pepe Pepe was too mainstream for are you you go grouper grouper so pep pepe. The Frog right to all right the the the one that was became like the outright. Send the racist frog so they created a new one. That's sort of a mash up of those. Those sad for Chan faces with the PEP mean. And it's a new frog. It's a it's a fat frog l.. Called groper and he's kind of black pilled. He's more of like the pro like the school shooter. You know. He's not the sort of jolly troublemaker. That pepe was he's more like black pill like you know. Start a civil war like like like definitely white supremacist. Okay I I can't find the Nazi for like a R. A. Y. P. He's more of like a barren her Conan kind of like. okay the t he kind of named aimed back with his with his fingers making finger tents going. Yes less less less aggressively like in your face. But so don Jr. has a new book out called triggered about the lives. Yeah and he him. In Kimberley aluminum foil have been going on tour for it. And they were. They were at Someplace Over the weekend and he was getting harassed from the audience there thank you Anna. Qna Q.. And A. America first and and he practically totally got chased off the stage by right wing protesters the group of people. I mentioned this because Something that everybody's anybody with any fucking sense thinking about is trump is bigger than trump. And whatever this next thing is is gonNA be bigger than trumpism and it's going to be very what's the what's the Alex Gibney Film. Hyper hyper normalization. I it's GONNA be we're getting it's going to get very hyper normalization up in this shit because trump you're right. Trump trump is incompetent is people are incompetent and enough of them have a little bit of solar shame to stop in his worst impulses but like what happens next. What happens when they get there? Like competent a competent and maybe slightly less objectionable. You know somebody who knows how to speak in coded language. Do you know somebody who can say stuff like trump where he like. I use against Dhaka. And then he was going to protect the dreamers because he has a very strongly large heart and and all that and then he can say two different things out of two different sides of his mouth what happens. What competent person gets that job? Well it's it's the first thing is like the whatever this this ugly white white nationalist movement movement is. It's I think there's a lot of slices of the pie that the awful diarrhea pie there. You've got you've got one on one on one one of those like real wet underdone pies sort of all spills out. Oh absolutely I mean. The crust is fine but it is literally full of diarrhea. It's a a store by store. Bought Crust your biggest slice is just going to be sort of regular sort of a conservative Americans who just sort of hate liberals roles and they just WanNa see the the Obama era liberal sort of like embarrassed and upset and trump became this great vehicle because nothing. He's like the Anti Obama right and I don't even know that they particularly in fact I do know that they don't particularly like trump's policies like It's just like the show. They like the a show. It is so much more like pro wrestling than anybody wants to admit totally yes. So there's there's like the pro wrestling contingent. Then I think the outright slice of the pie or the white nationalist slice is the Pie and these are like the true the true the real Nazis the gripers the real the real the that that is the really upsetting element. I think prop but I mean I think it's a difficult thing to talk about because like if you go well it's not the it's like. Well I don't think they represent mainstream conservatism. Or even the most of trump's voters. I think it's a small slice of that pie but also the it's also wrong to be like well they don't exist. I mean they they plainly. They do exist But it's a small it it is. It's a slice but and then you have other groups. That's more of like I think that. He's even more of a marriage of convenience like Evangelical Christians and things like that where it's just like well they just wanted that Supreme Court seat and they thought that trump had the best shot What's interesting is like for a lot of those groups specifically like the outright people all like trump is like so against what they what they want like? He's like so not the guy for them right. He's dislike rich like bumbling aristocrat like the man's. He's like an idiot like he's not this sort of like like a western Alpha male that they want you know what he's he's not. He's not the populist. Figure that Steve Bannon on sold him says he will stand there in front of people in West Virginia. And say the they're they're gonNA take your guns. I'm giving you back your coal jobs. The blocks love me. He'll just stand up there and say that and because because it is the pro wrestling and they like the greatest hits they're just there to hear satisfaction but then he also gets distracted and he's like one time Graydon. Carter didn't invite me to his lame party. He's awful look The very bad failing Vanity Fair. Did you get into the party. And it's like what how this is the guy. This is their big. This is there like right. This is. They're like oh they're like Uber. May I it's an open secret that the Feature on twitter called bookmarks is for me used exclusively for drill tweets. It's why I'm able to play so many good drill tweets because every time I there's sometimes did you find a drill tweet you know. Just be like Oh yeah. I'm GONNA need that. This will go on my quiver. I have to exactly two out of the dozens and dozens. Dozens of drill tweets that I have in bookmarks are exactly two tweets meets by people who are not draw. One of them's Nathan fielder. It's a picture of him smiling and saying out on the town having the timing life with a bunch of friends. They're all just out of frame laughing to the other one that I bookmark is Donald. J trump from March. Second Two thousand fourteen SEC- Graydon Carter of banning Vanity Fair magazine and bad food restaurants. Restaurants has a problem his V. F Oscar Party is no longer quote unquote hot c-grade. This is my dad. Food restaurants lead us to victory strong community. Alcohol call now so strongly very strongly. Perfect call anyway. I just think like it does make sense for that. Could slice of the Pie. The the true gripers the real heads. I think that they are going to like it. Does fit perfectly with me that they're going to the trump was always this sort of like I interpret. They're they're like the what they like about. Trump is that number one. He was sort of willing to appease them with his sort of that. Stephen Miller kinda stuff though like a real anti-immigrant a piano like anti trans like all these like a really a willing to be bullied to these groups that they liked that for sure but also trump was just so ridiculous like in a way. It's the most destructive thing you can do to the American system to vote for trump right. Because you're like I'd rather burn this whole thing down there I mean. They're some combination of trolls angry for where they are. They're we're just happy to watch the World Burn Yep and they got what they wanted but it also makes it does make perfect sense to me that now they're turning against trump and also these these sort of how would I put it the like the people who who there's this like other false the whole thing of this movement which like the Ben Shapiro's of the movement who they're on the you know the conservative intellectual quote Unquote Intellectual Conservative commentators and the gropers are also protesting their talks now and and going after them and it does make sense because like these people like it's completely hollow like they have no real followers like nobody actually believes what they say it's like and this happened to a previous generation of conservative -servative Peop- of leaders intellectuals where remember in the Bush era where all the neoconservatives were like what people really want is a low national debt like they're concerned about the GDP debt ratio right and how fucking pants those people get when Jeb Bush and get the nomination because because they're like every you know the the they were exposed as having no power in the Republic the republic all their alleged principles that they stood for meant nothing when trump become the nominee and near exposed driving no power and I think probably the this new generation of the whatever the Ben Shapiro's and the WHO who's all those assholes the that that author Brett Steven Yeah Brad Stevens the Jordan Peterson's dare the next group that's just GonNa absolutely pants on the next thing comes along that leaves them behind behind right or the guy who complains about his food John was pro not property act but the other guy the guy look thumb. Where's the sweaters on? MSNBC The guy likes to complain about his food delivery online that people like that. I mean it's going to be. It's going to be thirsty days. Did you see the got. Can't find God damnit week or two ago or five years ago. The Jacob Wall and Jack what's his name like to do they do their little announcements outside his house and they talked about. You know whatever that it was ruth. Bader GINSBURG has been you know fisting with Paulie shore or whatever and they they do these insane announcements and the latest one. So they're her outside. Whoever's House that is I guess it's but fuck whatever his name is and they have a they have a little podium out there and Jacob Wall is out there talking Milo Lilo Lilo hippopotamus is sitting there looking? He's you know he's Gay Fella but he's having fun with it and he's having a frosty drink. I think maybe under a parasol. It's it's like a dream and then someone in the back. Someone in the audience watching this is doing a vic. Burger Style Air Horn. While they're talking Kajiya walls up there you know talking about whatever saying you know Hillary Clinton you know Felsch with a carrot top or whatever congress and really was like a VIC Burger video and they keep doing it getting pants who can get pants more than Portugal. Pull fool the poor guy. He's so fundamentally bad at his dirty tricks you love it absolutely love to know about it. They feel better already and I have A. I have a couple of quick topics some follow up Nonsense for you guys. Someone sent me. I do about it so I had mentioned that. I really enjoy watching some British television and Look I really like We'll Veronica a And I like a bake off and then there's another one called the final bite or something like that which is the like talking about. It's like the bake off talk show. Yeah it's thereafter show. Oh No I don't know that but I love the genre of gentle English reality garbage richer. Love Your Garden is wonderful wonderful. I really liked the travel show called travel man which I think is from The TV show. The you've got Merlene. It's it's it's really hard to find Got It from like a thumb drive from a friend who smuggled it out of the UK. But don't worry about that it's on my plex and it's called travel man and I just could not give higher endorsement to the show so he goes to the cities in mostly in Europe for forty eight hours and is uncomfortable on a variety of situations. It's very funny okay. It's very well written But somebody so you somebody sent you something all right so somebody sent me a Dubai. Friday listeners sent me up our box I'm gonNA open it up. It had like a Roku Ethernet cables and all these and some other boxes in it. And it's like and I to be honest I. It came with a long note that I haven't fully. I haven't fully ingested yet but basically the premises this is a rig where I can I can plug it in. It's hard set to Vpn into his like house or something. Only God. I can see where I can connect to his like virtual ritual. DVR To get British TV show or something like that it's like at VPN's into some system or something and I can British TV shows. No me ask you this. I really want these. It shows and it's a very nice thing that someone honeypot would you. I don't know man I. I don't know it's pretty tempting. I do a lot of weird shit and I wouldn't even be too much weird shit no you you believe. Based on a lot of your recent spicy talk to. There are a lot of things that you would plug into your lot of spicy talk. I don't know man. Can you hit some kind of like a skiff for a clean room where you could test it out sued at a friend's house due to friends. I I could make Alex Plug into their laptop. Put It on this network better than my house thanks. Yeah absolutely he's GonNa live. They're connect to like a starbucks. Doctor Manhattan appears on a tape. Paul Sisters in in the Pumpkin Spice. It's a square dance move. I think so we watched all right so you think you I think pretty sketchy I don't know. Were you able to identify who the person is and see if they seem like a Weirdo. I'm going to be honest. I came weeks ago and I opened the box and got a little overwhelmed by it because I was like this is this is like simultaneously like very generous and cool that someone set this up and I'm not I don't actually think they're trying to hack me but I also like it does have a bunch of like instructions and stuff and and it was one of those things I brought it home and I put it on my desk and I'm going to get to this tonight and now it's like a month and a half or two months later and I'm just like Maybe tonight I realized I realized this is not the kind of this is not how you guys think this is how I think but I I think I've mentioned before a longtime back. Even before I had a kid I started thinking about what I would would make decisions in my life I would think about will. How will I feel about having to explain this on a form? Emergency talking about free telling stories. Raise my God okay. The reason I say that okay. Alex can I finish done. I'm sorry say that the reason I say that here is I think you need to ask to yourself. If I have to file some kind of a report with the authorities. How would you feel about filling out that part of the farm? You'RE GONNA have to say. Can I please have more room to fill this Explain this somebody like. I'm pretty good at this stuff. But you know somebody sent me stuff. That might have stolen English TV on it. And then I plugged in and the doctor Manhattan. Put his album pumpkin spice all right topic number. My next also also also don't say anything thank you Oh shit dog. We're can nope I'm not going to get. You can get you the Iowa Day Merlin. There's obviously I just said I just set my friend's picture of Of of the back of a truck Merlin. Obviously there's one question that I want to ask and I'm not going you too because you just give me the answer to that in our channels so I don't have to say it on the podcast. You know what I'M GONNA ask. Oh Oh what does it do. What does it do Ronna? Can I watched other watchmen episode one. And I in questions for you guys. So I truly went into the literally. The only reason I even know that the watchman exists is from when you in John endorsed endorsed on the show on the program. So I don't I don't know I mean I don't know I didn't even know what was out Hama Dr Manhattan's Hog Hang On. Hang on the telephone. I read the Comic Book I didn't. I didn't even know that. There was a new watchmen. I literally what I'm trying to say. Is David Watchman TV show. I literally didn't know anything about so. I I guess I went into it assuming it would be like a the the graphic novel that I know that I've read right and sure it was not that and it's something else it's a cool. It's unbelievable and it's Scott. If you if you enjoyed any part of the leftovers episode you saw you can order your your fan of lost. You get that whole sense of like well. I certainly certainly don't understand a lot of this. I guess like I mean I really I I really liked it. I'm going to keep watching it but I was just I mean there were so many things in that episodes just like what the fuck like why. It's raining squids and they don't seem to mind. Yeah squeegee outright. It's like that great. That's a great thing of like and Shannon fiction is people is people having ordinary reactions to extraordinary events magic realism to yeah. Yeah Yeah and John Unlike literary fiction as people having extraordinary reactions to ordinary events but when it started raining squid. And then she's got the squeegee and wipe the car. I was like the this is my shit right here like I. That's so weird so I'm not really supposed to it end Bronco. Both we both looked at each other. And we're like what the fuck do we just watch and I get it right and you're a student. You're a student of the comic. So that's funny reaction to have but you know again. I think it's you have to take demon in Lindelof with a golf ball sized grain of salt because he generally has a reason for doing what he's doing he likes perplexing you and win when he has the opportunity. You will generally find out what's happening but you just go along for the ride now now even. US Who's read this twelve wonderful issues of the comic. It's it's funny confusing. I I did too and for at first after the first episode or two I was like Oh you know it helps to have read the comics but so you don't have to and now. I retract that this must be incredibly baffling. And if you're in a room with someone who has read the comics key Magin. How insufferable all the pausing you you have to do to go well you know? They treated differently in the movie. Actually you know what was the the I should. I should probably just google this instead of asking you. Have you seen it Alex. I have not seen this yet. No no no. It's I think you're gonna like get your filmmaking. That's the first level I liked it on is like the filmmaking is just exquisite like it's like really well composed like like like every shot is very very like it's the kind of film making they used to not be able to see on television like it's just so it's crazy that this is on TV. Well no I'm all in on on Lindelof but do you have to have read the Comic Post Comics. I don't know Veronica. I've why read the watchman although it's been a while in college and I it's the twelve twelve issue run from the eighties. Yes I read the the the the Alan Moore watchmen. Ah I'm just saying as against supplemental material after that like there was a run of many many titles a few years ago. DC put out of that. Yeah no no. I just WANNA clarify right frau. She doesn't have to read all the things she by one big book and read all of it read read. I'm not I read so I read your question. What is your question? I'm sorry I misunderstood. My question was is do. You answered it. You don't need the weird like right. Yeah yeah I read. The Alamo Watchmen and Veronica hasn't and we both will. Although in general. She reads much much more complex than me. But that's just the one that I've read and she was and we I would say we were approximately equally confused but about different like in some weighs like reading. The comics was even more confusing me because I there were things where I was like. Well I was playing my expectations. Were working against me Like what was the opening scene. That's a real thing. Okay they need to go on. Well I mean as previously stipulated related. I I'm cautious about spoiling it. But there's something that happened literally. The opening won't minute of the show. Yeah Yeah it's called it's called It was in Nineteen Twenty one in Tulsa Elsa a true event or the called the Wall Street riot or the Wall Street massacre. That was a real thing. The white supremacists led by the KKK. murdered lots of black people in this very at one of the probably one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the United States at the time for for African Americans. When you started started that sentence I was like oh no black Monday but then it got much more sad than that is very very sad? It's very very intense. And when you're ready for the supplemental couple metal material his so there's an official. Hbo podcast hosted by Craig Mazin from Chernobyl and he interviews Damon Lindelof lindelof about the show three episodes at a time and he talks. He talks about his decision to include that that he did not want to be exploitative but he's been against again so I can just say he's been reading Much Malloy but Tana she coats this stuff over the last few years and stuff about reparations and all that stuff and was very affected affected by that and basically when each came to him and said you know do you WanNa take a crack watchmen. First of all. He was like no fucking way but then it came back if I could hang this on on this you know. Tanya coats approach to like what I would want to do with this. That would be very interesting to me. And so he's worked with some people and you know he just like any the white guy you know what I learned about stuff like this. Become the expert on it and you WanNa talk about it. And he's I mean I'm not a black guy so I can't say but he seems pretty woke about what he's is trying to accomplish and trying to avoid doing things that are strictly there for To provoke emotions or to be. What's the word I'm looking for? He's trying not to abuse the source material. But that yeah that really happened and then they do. The FE dissolved to current day. And so so. So they're following. The chronology of of the watchmen comics. Place in nineteen eighty-five came on eighty six and then years pass. And so basically they are in that. In that watchmen. Universe version of earth is now for us to does it make sense. Oh the same amount of time has passed they. I don't have the Internet but they do have pagers. Oh my God. It's it is truly a like an like an alternate like splinter universe in some ways and so in the same way that Nixon was president in comics. Robert Redford has been president for twenty some years and then the reparations that are paid out are called called Redford nations. It's your Shit Alex. Don't worry about that. No I know it takes so so the show is twenty nineteen. That's right I did not get that. Okay how how did you. How do you know that Noah podcasts? Okay no no I mean the same amount of time I think the notion Russian is the same amount of time has passed. You know it's weird like so you know. I bought my wife. A copy of watchmen probably ten years ago. Let's just say for Syracuse purposes purposes. The spine is very much intact and we bought two more copies for people in my house. Not The lizard of the cat And those arrive tomorrow. Because I think it's time because Dame Lynne talks about how his dad's slipped this to him. It's challenging stuff but you know she's up to it but how was her. His Dad was like trying to be cool out in late. Eighties slipped him. But here you go kid. I two issues of watchmen and he like just you know it was very it was. He looks at that. As the beginning of his interest in telling stories I did not know you allow. I did not know you're allowed to do this like I like comics but I didn't know you know comments like this were allowed to exist. And that's what he claims and I think he's a pretty straight up guy that's what he claims provoked his whole interest in storytelling. retelling is comedy general and watch in particular that really tracks well. You'll it's confusing Max. You're not alone you're not alone I'm four episodes in no I I enjoyed it. I'M NOT I don't mind being not fully getting media in fact I like when there's something left thinks about at the end of it and I'm GonNa Keep Wa. I'm not complaining about it. I just. I was surprised Ed I was like for you know like I almost think like Comic Book Superhero Media Comic Book medium like Marvel Movies and stuff like that like one of my biggest beef that I've talked about about one hundred times in the podcast is that it leaves you with nothing left to think about afterwards like there's literally nothing to talk about some answers. Let's so so so much How does one say? And I'm not trying to get. Martin Scorsese here but so much of the success of that stuff over the last few years increasingly became about first of all becomes an Algebra. A little bit right you start with nostalgia and then the nostalgia builds into its own sort of you. You know. It's not entirely true because it's not like iron man. was that popular but we know a comic books. Hey Robert Downey JR is really good in this. That kicks things off. Oh my God. They did a captain. America could move to. This is incredible and so on and so forth and but the increasingly become an you know especially with the per se avengers movies I'm not a huge. I mean I like them but I'm not the some of the movies. I liked the least or go back to the least are the actual canonical avengers movies. Because there's uses so much going on it's like watching a Disneyland parade where you just go like. Oh okay I guess that's lighter and he's gone Okay what what are we doing here. But it's like a it's a celebration a parade of Ip that if you're into it is fantastic but on the one hand it starts with an Salva but it kind of comes back to nostalgia. 'cause you're like Oh. I have noticed Algebra of for the firemen movie and like don't touch my stuff. Don't change this. Don't make it weird. Don't make it about girls like don't do all the things and like I think with watchmen. He's I mean if you enjoyed those comics and this is this is the thing I said was you. So I don't know shot up but the press a little frustrating is all of the pre. Backlash about watchmen. C'mon not just how more but with lots of people of like. Oh Yeah you're not allowed to do this. This is God's own text. Well here's the thing if you actually like. What the themes? uh-huh of watchmen the comic. Were that were done so well for that time. He's done a pretty stellar job of taking those exact same fucking themes but updating eating it and doing completely new stuff with it so I forgive me. I try to say this fewer than three times a year. But if you don't if you don't like watching the TV show on principle you probably don't like the comics. That actually came out as much as you think you do. Do you follow. Yeah I like that. I like that's so much we'll think about it. Max It's it really is about. It's about an an uncertain world where we have come to one point. We were depending on vigilantes to take care of things for us. Those vigilantes necessarily mostly wore masks and had secret identities. Well what happens when we get to a point where the police have to be the ones that wear the masks right and key the keene act the guy with the keene act. His grandson is is doing something something similar and yet very different. 'cause Qian's grandson is now a lawmaker and he's the one who said it's okay for police to wear masks that they have to be protected anyway. Boy I've said too much coach. It's really good it's really no I mean. Look there's an overwhelming amount of media. Watch I watched the O.. Did did you guys get Disney. Plus you're going to hell. Yeah obviously we're all getting fucking wow is a good. They've fucking they got me by the balls there but I did. I got the yearly. And the first thing I watched was The imagineering documentary series Is that exclusive. It's Disney excludes so it's a new one and it's a documentary series about the imagine. Imagine years I think so. There's a one hour episode but it's labeled like number one so I assume they're going to be adding more over time. Cool all the list. If you're if you're a Disney theme park like nerd in any capacity or your interests like it was fucking cool. It was great I liked it The politics it has the worst politics like it's like it very clearly tells the story. The Walt triumphed over the trade unions like breakaway back hundreds of shell companies successfully get land away from the Florida. Great job. Great Job while you count it. This episode like only covers Disneyland but like just the all the footage of with them like building jokers and stuff was. I mean it was just unbelievable. I'm trying to see how long I can hold out before getting it. It and a half hour after on principle. No because I know myself well enough to know. WHOA that I'm so impulsive that I'm just going to end up watching so many things that I don't WanNa say our waste of my time hyme but there are so many things that are just like personally more a lot of other stuff to do? Well there's the verner Herzog's did did you guys talk king using innovative variety and it was one of those like press junket interviews about the man delorean. And we're like do you know what these press things like if you're in a show like you say the same positive thing over and over and it's all it's all like a circ it's like very like like calculated like even the reporters totally products productized in package to be something where you can have these two or three talking points about what a thrill it was to get to do this. And then they changed. Change the background. Now it's entertainment weekly right that kind of thing. It's just like people usually you're set up in a room and different people come in and you get interviewed for a little while you say so. You're talking points you get some photos right. It's very productized. Yeah even the reporters Used the press release language for the Mandal oriented like. They're sort of briefed on. I'm like you have to talk about it this way. And it was very funny Vanity Fair where they were like their reporters like what's it. What was it like working with Jon? Favreau on this. Because he's made so many hit films recently early and VERNA Herzog goes. I'm not aware of and they're like really and he's like no and then later they were like They're like are you going to. I let me read it because it's so funny. Because didn't he say he hadn't seen star wars or something like that he got into. He hasn't seen any of the star wars films and he only watches films a year but then he goes there. You will you see So so even the way they said I love how they even asked this question. Will you watch the mandatory and when it blasts off right with clearly they were briefed. Don't say when it launches used when it when it blasts SICKO. Will you watch the mandatory and when it hurts. That goes well. I can only watch it on Disney. Plus I'd have to sign up for it so far sign up for one streaming platform and that's criteria the hundreds of homes and everyone of them. That's great diversion the reporters just trying like this feels like the one time he goes off script whereas like he he did the lion king this year is like I'm fan of the animated one thirty. Yeah he's like good music. Did you watch any television. I watch I watch wrestlemainia like anyway. Alex maybe you could go full verner Herzog and you just get the criterion collection. So you like to watch all this wonder rise. One of those people watches Rosh amount over and over and over fucking watch last night. Was Robin Hood uh-huh one of the Great Disney movies. I loved I loved it as a kid. Yes the seventy three. It's not not considered a good movie but I loved it as a kid had. We had a long actually an interesting. It's very very slow. Moving as compared to like Disney movies to try watch Mary poppins again. Holy Shit Chitty. Chitty Bang Bang like Disney. Movies are so slow it was interesting like we had a whole conversation of that had are like are we. Yeah like what is it that we find. I guess what we're talking about is like the Disney like overtime. Have we just figured out how to press people's dopamine buttons more effectively so that movies are sort of correctly paste now or is it just that like this is the taste of the day. Everyone likes everything fast. Now and then later maybe it'll go back to being slow slow. I think the easy answer to that question is yes. The style of the time is fast fast fast fast and Disney also the technology. Think about the technology of being able to say well. Let's try that. Cut It cutting that a different way. You know what I mean like the you could so aggressively take out everything that's it becomes is all killer. No filler there are movies you go back and watch a movie like third man. I would not call the third Mana slow paced movie. It's repulsive in its way but it's nothing compared to what you would watch today with like a Christopher Nolan fill in something similar of like you know there's you know what I mean like. It's it's it's it's so much more impulsive but also Robin Hood is famous for being. I'm from that era. Were Disney was starting to cheap out and they started reusing a lot of animation from other movies lately like and so you know I I like it a lot and I love the music I listen to music tons when I was a kid but still have warm feelings. Mary poppins Holy Shit. We tried to show that to my kid a few years ago when she was real little I I was like. Oh Yeah this is a great movie. Oh my God win. Is Anything going to happen in this movie just goes on. And on I'm on the page of Werner Herzog quotes on wicky quote vote. I will put that in notes. Because he's very quotable. The common denominator of the universe is not harmony but chaos hostility and murder us us from grizzly man which is a real. Pick me up movie. I can't I still can't believe they released that movie. Like Oh my God painful to do that. He saw the footage but he's not going to show it to us. Oh ooh speaking of which yes. Actually we don't have time thirty six minutes in what's going on with you and sex. Alex you've gotten very very spicy with your sex talk by design no well. I have lots of examples in front of Ming. Ron This on this show. Where did this happen? We what are you talking about. I've got it's gotten real well. You wanted to know which devices people would want to have intercourse or course with today. You let us know about sizzling. Like I said I did fuck very kill for IOS devices fucking is Alex. You have a book or something you could look at. And then you've got something this morning about sizzling which I think is a sex thing with vaginas and then and then and then. What was your other one? This morning You you had more sex talk this morning in our super secret private techs channel. Oh yeah yeah well. I did put a Dildo in there but Yeah are you. Are you in the midst so kind of a movement are you are you. Are you asking. If I'm like brooming any I think it's one thing to be sex positive. It's another thing to have of a filthy hormone health. Things you say I will. WHO's moving to Utah to fuck all the scissor if I want to? I consider if I wanted to go. No no no no no that would feddie clogging up the scissors like ID. Why because there's some personal? So what happens if he yeah. There's some crucial things that you'd have to remove I in a good analogy. I guess like a twist tie. I don't know on my goodness okay. I don't know from up for that. Yeah no cut that out. Cut that out. Cut that out doing. Congratulations on your suzerain coolness Max intercourse talking about it God kill me. It was lose the challenge. This week it was from a friend of the show John Syracuse. You're very very good after show with John. Last we got a lot of Nice feedback about that and it was very funny. I almost feel like we should liberate. That wouldn't now. It's I'm I'm open to it but if people want to hear it for sure you can go to give us your money. Dot Com Tom. You by Friday Five dollars a month on the Dubai Friday patriotic and you get access to our exclusive after show where we torment John Syracuse. He torments us us. Did torma yeah. He was really. That'd be talking about Spicy whoo up. What was on his game last week? Yeah I texted Quinn. Like if if you've gone to me even just five years ago. And said I was on a podcast with Berlin man and John Syracuse. And I couldn't wait for it to and I and I don't want to leave you but why would you want to end. Oh no just because I was up for a very long time. I'm trying to communicate that it is a very long very good after show and very on brand with Frienemie of the show John Syracuse Houston like. He's a friend of me of the people that's usually funded. Do all alright dig dug. I guess was John Syracuse. This challenge would you like to explain it earlier. Easily one of the Weird Goddamn. It'll try he he lets me know obviously off unless you know what I'm doing wrong and he asked me to communicate with other people what they're doing wrong the things that I could or could not fix fix for them and whether I did that right or whether presented right to them in the way that I explained it or didn't explain it according to how he would prefer that I would explain it because there's literally no pleasing him and one of the things he does is. Sometimes I rarely but he'll he'll tell me a challenge that he thinks we should do and this week. The challenge comes from something. He texted me about a long time ago. For whatever reason he wanted the challenge to be that we pushing I'M GONNA say it wrong and he's GonNa attack me that we learn to say the name of a certain day ity on the TV show adventure time uh-huh uh-huh that's really the challenge. I still can't figure figure out why this would be a challenge. Except because he knows. I can't do it. You can't finish without hearing you said he wants to for a ringtone uh-huh me hear me mess up and hear both of you make fun of me for it. Which is which is valid reason to want to do a challenge but I? I can't imagine another reason why I figured I figured well the reason I allow this is that it's it's a silly challenge. And it's an easy challenge a good a good challenge easy in the sense of not too time consuming but I thought it also might give us a chance to talk about venture time just a little bit was thought. Yeah I still have not seen the end grab grab grab grab grab grab grab GLOB grod. Yep they really fast order time. Yeah did you miss that Grubb Gob Glob grod and grab grab gadgets. And then you're done it's really easy mm-hmm as in as in. Oh my glop. Yes that blew my mind. The first time we met that character because in adventure time there her are It's implied that there aren't any deities. Except for grab or like the time I will know in the in the the very very beginning they just keep saying oh my Glob And then you slowly especially especially space Princess uh-huh uh-huh and then Gob. Yeah you'd think oh it's just a silly in adventure times way a silly little play on words but no no no. It's an incredibly integral character. One of the many deities in adventure time we doing has forgive my saying. Do we need to give a fifteen second explanation. About what adventure time is. Is that silly. That's probably silly right adventure. Time is a children's TV show really answer my question. I guess we do need to who explained that adventure time is a children's TV show about. Oh my God you've already ruined. You're already wrong okay. Venture time is an animated show about about a year boy and a dog and it takes place. We eventually will learn it takes place. In a post apocalyptic earth place where a big chunk of the earth we learn as missing conly it starts out being this very Amiable strange DND influenced TV. Show about boy and a dog and it really goes a lot a lot of places from their brothers their brothers I feel like that is an important point there literally brothers in the first episode you learned that they are brothers. That feels feels like since the tone a lot for well at the tone a lot for me because right off the Bat Oh adopt adopted brothers. Yes but they don't say that you when you're just like okay. The kid the human child is authors with the guy from Futurama. who voices the dog's a dog brother? Yeah I I don't like stick with you at the beginning like there's just so many like a lot of science fiction and fantasy alternate alternate universes. There are just a bunch of little things that are a little bit off and IT I. It's like okay. This is a children's show so it's just like silly and I okay. I'm not saying it is a children you think. Do you think it's literally four. Chill made four children. No no no I am saying when I first the first couple of episodes in my opinion not awesome and not counting the pilot that was initially made but then scrapped aired. You think you're watching. Do you want your booties. Esp's we say that all the time. But I love it so much. Oh my God did I. Did I tell you I remember listening to back to work when you got when you first got deeply into adventure time and it was and you guys went on a huge event your timeshare for a long time it will at first and at first and the prehistory I was very confound right the. Dan was obsessed with this show. Show about the dog buns guy and I was like what. What is this? You think it's the children just before I didn't get you saying that. So you start this show much like Steven Universe. You're like Oh this is cute. This is all allow it and then it's like. Oh this is much more but there's a there's a show on the show. There's a mint that is probably also an eternal demon. There's a lot going on a minute. Terrible terrible because I am royal and you are servile. I will decide what is what is Mr Ferman happy so happy for me to. That's so that is one of my favorite episodes too young a multi. But here's the thing about this. This is okay. So how how. How rarely do you encounter a rule where there is a really really big cosmology toy told in a very point to Listrik way? You don't get so much on this show. You know what I mean and you really do have to watch like Oh my God that face in the pink stuff appears to be Oh my God that's Princess Bubblegum a thousand years ago. What in the hell what's going on clam right the way like just even looking? Let's just my absolute favorite storyline on the show because I'm a dad is a storyline with ice king and Marceline God just thinking about wannacry. Their storyline is so good. But it's told shut up daddy anyway. It's tolls in these. You get a little bit you get a little old like twelve minute episode here. Twelve minute episode. There you get this little bit over there there. Maybe it's not told in order but you have to fit all of that together. Who are these people? How hold are they? Why is it a mushroom? More mushrooms fight each other. Like what's going on. Why is he trying and find soup for her? Why is he singing? The theme from cheers. What is happening right? And that's the things you miss an episode of the show and you might miss a big piece of the cosmology. There was in like one tiny little piece much like another show called Steven Universe the universe. You seem not injury embiid you look fan of a fan of a fan of it. I've seen so many episodes. Would you the boy. No okay. So listen there's a bunch of diamond and there are friends but we've we've done the bit that's all right and there's one there's a guy with a sunburn car wash. I listen. I know one no like I was into adventure time before any of us like I saw the short on on on the on the cartoon network Anthology. Show the Powell's do more did Allen Pendleton word for for what kind of award you win for them. Yeah I'm just saying like I I. I love adventure time. I think it was amazing. But Merlin like almost all the storylines that you're talking about that you like and the things that became the parts of your time that you loved. That was the rebecca sugar stuff man and then she left her own show. And it's worth you understand that I've seen literally dozens of episodes of Steven University. Are you aware of but you're not. It's like the wire Merlin. That's saying guy watched a couple of episodes of the wire but it was out of order and it didn't seem very ambitious and he's like yeah. The wire didn't make a lot of sense dance. I didn't understand everything that's going on all the characters had to do with each other. You know okay cool. Well you didn't really watch it though. Ken Quinn Quinn. Can you put in. Can you put into like digital where Merlin just said if you miss one episode of the show. You might not know tall. That's the thing like you miss an up sort of the show and you might miss a big piece of the cosmology that was in like one tiny little piece. It's crazy it's just I. It's it's absolutely bonkers to me that you watch that you love and venture time and it's become such a part of your Your vocabulary and you have all these things things and you haven't given like an earnest try to Steven Universe. which is I I like both? I love both of them but Stephen versus I haven't given an. Oh My god God. I can't even tell this is a bit anymore. Oh my God you haven't you and it's just so we're being clear here it is you that is chastising me about watching watching TV. Show wrong. I just want to write that down here because Queen could you go back and editor digitally digitally duly. We go back and you play hundreds of episodes of this show were Max does. Is this numerous times yell at you about Steven Universe. And then that's why everyone likes this thing Huh. Where I do do you have a doodle? You drop in right. Wait where I ask you to watch Steven Universe anyway. What Sony pro I feel like should have released the new version by now that will support worth giving it? That is a democrat. I'm anyway it's a really good show and to your to your point I feel like Sir. I have not seen every single episode of adventure time but like I miss the important of the importance of this character in this characterization like was there one one big episode with this character I don't remember it because Glob came about after Rebecca sugar left to make make the other show that I really like and that's when I feel like it not that it got bad but just some of the more got less it became more on the nose became more conventional became a little more like her descending. And it's like okay. We see God now like I who does be public Oh Natasha Allegri your name okay. All right that makes sense. It's not yet Tasha electricians on net net zo on twitter okay 'cause like I feel like I mean obviously know the GLOB references that goes I think you know. Oh my Glob as being primarily ellipse base princess thing but like I don't remember that much lower GLOB stuff but it's a really could show and you know what an when Ryan North was doing. The comics comics are also good. Oh and Daniel rand north comics graphic grover novels. The graphic novel stand alone one lumber jeans. What did she do Prince Prince? Yes yes we did the The mercy lean. Oh Gosh what was it called the marceline one so good all of the There's there's a great. I think I'm sure you've heard it. Merlin Conversation Parade. Yeah probably yeah where God I love that show so much. Uh Oh my God I miss it. I miss it so much. It was so good. It's like up there with election profit. Makers where is the time but like yeah so it's a name wrong every Time opened mikey guess hand and John Mo and they would talk about a metre time and interview people from the show and they always had like theories the reason stuff and they would come in with like topic and it was. It was conversation parade. I'll put in notes. I assume it's still around so good. Anyway you were saying was was was her head on their Noelle Stevenson. Oh yeah she wrote a bunch of. I can't find what she wrote. I know that she wrote and or drew stuff as did. Oh God I feel so bad for getting all these Danielle. What's her name? Who did girl? Two girls is in a slingshot. Oh my God I'm the worst. I'm a bad friend and a bad comics reader but like they looked so many people from web comics to do the comics and the storyboards and stuff. It was wild. Even though it's wild to think that that if adventure time hadn't become so big there are so many people like oh I don't WanNa be starting over. I don't WanNa be statements and back to where we were adjusting the microphone. So you're you're bad friend. No I think this this. Oh no no no the okay fine. No it's not the end all right Spice Bar until his but falls off aw.

On today's program. Ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the program. Everyone's here today. Jamie is back from her. Where did where did you go? Jimmy. I I went up state to work on my book proposal and freak out about that. And then I went to the twenty four hour drone festival, which was as always a transcendent experience. I don't even know what that means is the mean drone music. Oh, okay. It's like any PD. I thought you were saying not the kind of same mistake last year. Actually, I did. Yeah. I guess I didn't pick up that. Whereas the drone where's the drone festival? It's at basilica Hudson, which is a beautiful former factory building owned by Melissa after mar and her filmmaker husband, I know that place very very well. Cool. My daughter has gone camp right next to the basilica. Oh my God. I didn't realize this this one. I mean, my experience was not for kids. I'll tell you that much last weekend. I can only imagine not for beginners. I can only imagine. All right, folks. Couple of couple of emails. I got from from listeners that I want to share with you because longtime listeners both one is from listener, Alex. Hey, I'm Mark crew. It's my brother's Spencer's birthday. And I was hoping you could give him a show far. He did the same for my birthday. And it made my day. We are both daily listeners and members he was gonna get me a membership for my birthday, but found out I had already joined keep fighting the good fight pajama, boys and girls left his best. And I'm going to combine that show far with one from film, fast guy, longtime listener. So she hid with the film archives. Could I have a birthday shoutout? It was my fiftieth this past Saturday. Welcome welcome to it, buddy. And to both guys. Happy birthday. Thanks. Continued listener ship much appreciated. All right. Let's go to this. Bench bureau still on the seems like every every week. He's got a new favorite freshman woman. Congress congressperson that he is obsessing about I think ill Hans is favourite fail. Haunt is his favorite now. Well, because you know. In the attempt to deny the obvious truth that. Hate crimes against Muslims against Jews. Against really anybody who is not white in this country or not Christian. Has gone up since the entrance into the race by Donald Trump and the Republican party which enabled Donald Trump's rise which trained it's it's electorate to vote for a guy like this. That has excused time and time again rhetoric that ranges from I'm sure there's some decent non rapist Mexicans to you know, we're going to ban Muslim countries Muslim immigrants to just we're going to charge refugees money if they're seeking asylum and on and on and on. I'm sure they're good people on both the whole thing in their desperate attempt to hide their and denied their own complicity in this stuff. Whether they dress it up as like, we're we're just exploring ideas. Here. We're rebels were talking about stuff that was you know, hasn't been as popular since we were talking about eugenics or something. They are constantly looking for other people to blame for what they know. Ultimately is a function of their politics. And here is a bench bureau trying to somehow tie Ilan Omar into the white supremacist who. Who shot up a synagogue a couple of days ago? As I said before if you are blind to anti-semitism from one particular side of the aisle because it favors or political position. You're not in the fight against anti-semitism. You're part of the problem. If anti-semitism is just another political club to be wielded, if Illinois Amar posit, you know, it's just amazing because I one could be forgiven for assuming that that was the way he was about to introduce his apology. When anti semitism is simply used as a political club. And with that said I on a pithy last night, and I'm going to retire. And I'm going to go work somewhere else and do something else with my life because I realize what I have been doing has been so wrong. But instead he turns still on mar schism you're part of the problem. If anti-semitism is just another political club to be wielded. If it were Nomar is given the credibility to speak out against anti-semitism while routinely engaging an anti semitism. She has a lot of the same opinions about Jews that the white supremacist had in that manifesto, in that manifesto, the base the the white the shooter basically says the festively says about Jews that they control the world media that they control the way money runs that they control opinion about Israel. Am I posit now lawn? Omar has said none of those things. None of none of the things. She's ever said could even be remotely interpreted by that. The closest she's ever said is that the pack that is has an its mission statement to impact the to impact the public opinion of Israel in this country. Does it by expending money on candidates? Just like Thomas Friedman said although Thomas Friedman said it, a little more aggressively and a little more pointedly and a little bit more studiously. But she she never said any of the things he's lying about. Now. It's what you think how decrepit you have to be in your brain to make this case that we shouldn't politicize anti-semitism as you are lying to politicize anti-semitism, and basically comparing Yulon Omar to a white supremacist who's just shot somebody up because he has to lie about the similarities in their manifesto. And I want you to keep that in mind. We don't need to hear bench bureau anymore because Ben Shapiro when we talk about manifestos when we talk about the implications. And he's Ray I don't know what the point is. He's making that Alon Omar any lies about her opinions are similar to those of the the shooter. But we know for a fact. That the guy who shot up. In canada. Which number is this one that we have here. The Quebec City. Mosque shooter. In the Washington Post. The guy's name biz Annette appears to have obsessively visited the Twitter accounts of Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingram. David Duke, Alex Jones, Mike's arnovitz, Richard Spencer. And business at check on the Twitter account of Ben Shapiro ninety three times in the month leading up to the shooting. So if you wanna talk about similarities in perspective if you wanna talk about inspiration. For. For attacks. Like these. Here's a video who did this video. This is a clip from Vic burger, Vic burger did a video comparing. The rhetoric from Shapiro with the testimony not testimony. The I guess the interrogation of this guy. Bizet listen to this many Muslims are trying to kill Jews end of story. This idea we are all Muslim. No, we aren't and the only people who think we are leftists who are fully insane or Muslims who believe that. We all should be Muslims in that. They get to kill us. If we disagree. So all of this politically, correct nonsense. It's going to get a lot of people killed. Coming from western civilization. A lot more people will die because there are people who believe we are all Muslims. Here's business. I wanted to say people say people they ask. Yes. From terrorist attacks America's time for this crap. I mean, the the. I don't know if I can say that. That Shapiro inspired this guy, but we do know in terms of factually, this guy was obsessively checking the messages, he was getting from Shapiro, and that his perspective is fears. We're completely aligned with the warnings that Shapiro was giving. So it's really stunning for this guy to come out and say this type of stuff if we're talking about manifestos actually read the one from the New Zealand guy, and I would like to see Ben Shapiro explicitly say how his views on the dangers of Muslim immigration differ from those expressed in those manifest these very interesting to hear I mean, it's it's pretty shocking to hear bench para going out and trying to make this argument. Yeah. And he can stop using all Jews as an excuse, by the way because most Jews do not agree with him. Well, he would not be fair. He would not consider those Jews to juice because Ben Shapiro. Completely inconsistent with the with Jewish tradition. Feels that he is the pope of the Jews. Apparently, I'm the pulpit the gyms. Or he certainly it appears to act that way, and it must pious.

How to hide an empire a history of the greater United States. We'll be right back. L? Glenn? Does my. We are back. Sam cedar on the majority report on the phone is a pleasure to welcome to the program professor of history at Northwestern University. Daniel im- Avar and author of how to hide an empire a history of the greater United States. Daniel welcome to the program. It's a pleasure to be here. All right. So let's just as an overview this is a a almost like a geographic history of of the of the empire of the United States. Why I guess what is it about knowing the geography as you track it over the course of a couple hundred years that is so important to our understanding of of America as as an entity, I guess. Yeah. No. That's right. I start the book with maps, and one of the reasons I do that is that frankly, I think a lot of people in the United States and a lot of people outside of the United States don't really have an accurate map of the full borders of the country in their head. So, you know, if you ask most people, what is the US look like on a map, they call the mind that million shape, just the contiguous blob with Mexico and Canada on the north and south and the oceans on either side, but the thing is those of only been the borders of the United States for three years of its history. There's three years of US history. Where those are the borders, partly because in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, the United States was expanding. But because after it's sort of expanding in the contiguous North America. It started expanding overseas taking first uninhabited islands in the Caribbean and the Pacific and the Caribbean and the Pacific, and then, you know, taking large and having colonies by the end of the nineteenth century had a very large populace empire and those overseas. Parts of the United States, but the colonies and then later on the military basis, hundreds of them that the United States claims those are just don't really feature in most people's maps the country, and as a result, they tell truncated version of its history. I history that only is interested and only focuses on the mainland, and they miss a lot of the action when they do that. And does it do we also does it have implications in terms of the character of of the country? I mean, the that we don't fully grasp the history. But do we not fully grasp, you know? I guess the I don't know. I'm just thinking, you know, we're we're obviously it's primary season. And so we have a lot of candidates talk about America as an idea. And I'm not sure I know what that means. But does it implicate that idea I think it does because the vision that you get the United States if you're just looking at what people in the territories, call the mainland first of all it's. Vision where Republican ideals hold not perfectly, but fairly well most people live in parts of the United States that allow them to vote that allow them to have sort of vote vote for representatives in congress. Now, that's not true in DC. So there are some little anomalies and and native American lands have their own sort of legal arrangements. Nevertheless, you kind of feel like it's wall to wall carpeting in terms of the Republican system. Once you look at the other parts of the United States the overseas parts, you realize that a big a big part of US history is is is a peripheral zone zone. That is doesn't have representations. Terms of the ability to vote for the president doesn't have the ability to vote for delegates who then have voting power in congress. And in many cases, isn't even covered by the constitution. So that's disenfranchisement or support nation by all three modes of government. And that is I think a serious cognitive dissonance contradiction between the ideals of the country as we often articulated them. And the ideals is there actually lived. I mean, I guess and as we go through these sort of these these areas, I mean, do we have a an accounting of particularly in that respect of the of the numbers that we're talking about. I mean, how does that translate from at at maybe high and low points in terms of just how many of those of of people are in that sort of that that area of they're not sovereign, but they're not in any way represented. Sure. So we're at a relative low point right now. And you know, the United States still has five inhabited territories and between three and four million people live in them. If you add Washington DC, that's you know, a few more hundred thousand people without full representation. The the kind that citizens living in states have. But you know, that's relatively low point. If you go back to nineteen forty which is where I sort of opened the book as I tell the story of how World War Two comes to the territories at that time nineteen million people live in the United States nineteen million people who are US nationals live off the mainland outside of the states and just for some perspective. If you live in the United States, then there's a one in eight chance that you're calling us. Do you live in? Territories which means that you're more likely to be colonized than you are to be an immigrant. You more likely could become a nice than you are to be African American. The odds of three two two. So this has been at various points of very substantial part of the United States is population. And even at times when even or even in places where the populations are kind of low small islands military bases which relatively small enclaves. Those spaces have also been really important to US history beyond their of the people who live in them or read around them. I wanna I wanna start with with with with with Pearl Harbor in the story tell about FDR in the way that he was framing this for the for the states, but it occurs to me as you're saying that about that sort of the really stunning number of people who are, you know, I mean disenfranchises almost like underwhelming word in that context when we add that with with slavery, which where you had people obviously in in, you know, probably material situations perhaps. Even more oppressed. But certainly the number of we have had an expansive history of having dominion or control over people without their having any participation in what we perceive as the idea of America that has been sort of more than norm than not. Yeah. Well, certainly it's been out US history every day of US history. There's you know, there's some version of this going on you can find some moment when the promises made turn out to be restricted to you know, in the eighteenth and nineteenth century to white settler population. Rather than to the full population of all the land in North America, which includes native Americans, which includes enslaved African Americans. Yeah. And but what's really important to recognize? I think is that colonialism is one of those important axes of subordination, actually, it's a really big one. And so when we're talking about the ways in which people are disenfranchised or legally subordinated or sort of they don't count within the, you know, sort of sense of Washington of who matters. And who doesn't actually it was is is is fairly big chunk of that. And certainly is so as especially in the first half of the twentieth century. So let's talk about the the attack on on per. L harbor, which in fact, well, I mean, you you may I just found the whole thing of fascinating because I have always referred to it as the attack on Pearl Harbor when in fact in some respects. It was from in terms of the war. It was not it doesn't have the same relevance. In terms of like like, the as all the other attacks took place that day, but we don't have that in our consciousness because of the way because if I guess what the conscious that Americans had of what constituted our territories at that time. I explain that. Yes. So pro harbor is not really the best name for what happens. And the reason it's not the best man for what happened is that the attack began for the United States with an attack on the naval base Pearl Harbor in the territory of Hawaii. But it didn't stop there in a near-simultaneous attack. This all took place within hours, it's a little confusing because part of the attack took place on the other side of the international dateline. And therefore it happened on December eighth, but this is all happening within a singer single solar day Japan attacks of the US. Territories for Wii wake island, which is in not indigenously inhabited, but nevertheless, occupied territory Guam and the single argest territory that the United States ever held, which is the Philippines. And the the reason that Pearl Harbor is not a particularly great description for all of that is first of all it's not clear that that's even where the greatest military. Damage is done the damage to the Philippines is quite serious and takes out this sort of pillar of air defense in the entire Pacific. But more importantly, the attack on Pearl Harbor just an attack, whereas the attack on wake island Philippines, and then later Alaska wasn't in that day. But it happened to you know, within months was a Japanese attack followed by more attacks, followed by invasion, and occupation. And so, you know, the largest colony that the United States had ever held Philippines was occupied by Japan for years. It was a brutal occupation. And folks in the Philippines, had a very different kind of war. Then people in Hawaii had I in fact, by the end of of World, War, Two Philippines, had lost. What was the one point five million people or one point six? Okay. So it depends on how you count. If you're asking how many Filipinos died in the second World War. The government count is around one point one million. If you ask how many people died in the Philippines, and that suit includes Japanese, and that includes US mainland servicemembers. Then it goes up to one point six million. But just to clarify that makes World War Two in the Philippines. The bloodiest event that ever took place on US soil, that's two civil wars. And yet you rarely hear about this in US history textbooks because the kind of US history that we often do and teaching this country is a history of not the entire United States history of the mainland only. And so things that take place outside of the mainland. Don't seem to count as part of that history and talk about how FDR addressed the country the United States, I guess the the Americans in in sort of framing what happened on that day. And like, I guess the question I have as you explain it is is it simply because like this is not a teachable moment to explain how we've been you know, how many territories we have. Or is it that? Like, this is not the vision that we have of ourselves. And so we don't I don't wanna really push that at this moment. Yes. So FDR faces a really interesting choice. And in fact, not just FDR anyone who's describing the attack the attack that we know call Pearl Harbor in in those, you know, hours and days after it is facing an interesting question, which is how to describe what happened and we've got a term for it for harbor, but they didn't have that term that was the name of the military base the naval base. But no one called the full attack Pearl Harbor in a way that we did that didn't come out for a few days. So you can just go through the newspaper headlines and see editors try to put a description to it or try to put a name to it. Or try to say what happened and often they would say that. Well, last things happen Japan attacked Hawaii Guam or Japan attacked the Philippines in Hawaii wasn't clear where the focus needed to be Eleanor Roosevelt gave a speech the night before. So before FDR's date, which will live in infamy speech. And she's focused attention on Hawaii and the Philippines. And that's also how the draft of FDR's famous speech went after our produce that draft, and it was about Japanese attacks on who I e in the Philippines, and then you can just see FDR noodling with the draft. And when I say, you can see it. I mean, literally because we actually have his marked up. Successive copies and his emanations and his deletions and one thing he does is he takes out prominent references to the Philippines. He makes this story about Hawaii. They're still sort of back back page reference to the Philippines. People don't always remembering that speech there. FDR gives a list of other places that Japan has attacked it's an indiscriminate list. So it doesn't distinguish any way between US and foreign territory, and it sort of talked to the back of the speech. But nevertheless, the focus of that is on Hawaii. And it seems pretty clear to me why I don't think this is sort of grand conspiracy. But I think what the hours responding to is that there is very little. Support on the US mainland for military defense of the Philippines, which is has a very small white population is very far from the mainland or for Guam, and there's more support. Although even that is kind of wobbly for to to use the US military to defend the territory of Hawaii, which has a larger although not majority white population. And you can see after are worried about even Hawaii because the final edit. He makes it a speech between the last draft that we have on paper and his his actual spoken speech. Is that he he inserts the word American in there before he describes the target in Hawaii just to really underscore to his audience. And I think after you are was nervous about what he's audience would here that Hawaii might sound foreign might feel foreign, but actually is American territory, and therefore a Japanese attack on it is cause for war. So are so let's go back in and what what is the Genesis of? I mean, I guess the Genesis of. Of of the American empire begins as the as as I guess Sadler's in colonialists start to move west. Right. What is the Genesis of this sort of lack of awareness? And maybe maybe this is like a generic shyness about being an empire. But it doesn't like it seems to me like the British empire was sort of. You know, they were pretty psyched about making sure that everybody was aware that they were empire. I don't get the same. You don't get the same sense of American history in that way. Yeah. So two things first of all, you're right. But in some ways these questions of empire go back to day one literally today one in that the right after the United States is formally independent from Britain. So the treaty has been ratified by both sides. And now the country's independent. It's it's name. Is United States of America, which suggests that it's a union of states. But it's not it's a union of or it's not even a union. It's an amalgam of states and territories the word union suggests voluntarily entered into the United States from day one has territories in this Case, Western territories. And we'll have territories every day. You know, until now I mean, so every every intervening day, it's it's it's always states and territories. But I that's a not a hidden kind of thing about the United States. People are very aware of it. The civil war has a lot to do with the battle for slavery in the territories. You know candidates for president will talk about their sort of log cabin back country routes. I think the moment when imperial architecture of the United States becomes the kind of thing that has to be hidden his win those. Territories are no longer receptacles for the filling up with white settlers when they become large populace places full. Of people who are perceived from the perspective of the mainland is non white. I can't just be dislodged by white settlers. And so we're talking here about territories like Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Philippines, Alaska Guam, and that kind of imperialism the kind about your ruling distant populations the kind of Britain does so proudly that's kind of the United States never sort of or very rarely trumpets. Proudly and for most of its history experiences sort of cognitive dissonance about, you know, on the one hand, it has a vision of itself, as you know, Republic where everyone has sort of some Santa government on the other hand, the reality is that, you know, millions of people live under this different kind of government, and that never quite fits in the same way that fits easily British political culture is that what it is. Because that that reality butts up against the the the the the the narrative of the character of of America, the idea of America and. Is it is it that? And or is it also that we're this is about resource extraction or about some type of like, we need a base here. Well, yeah, it's interesting that the colonial story of the United States. Overseas colonies, not largely story of successful resources extraction. There are sugar plantations and pineapple plantations, and such but it's not like the United States depends for its absolute livelihood on its overseas. Territories it does in the later. Twentieth. Century start to care lot about you know, all of its military bases all over the planet. But, but why does it have large colonies doesn't really turn out to need them in some deep way? Nevertheless, there is there's a real contradiction between how the United States which was born of an anti colonial revolt. Envisions itself the kind of pattern that had that it had been in the nineteenth century where did you know states and territories, but it always you know, or intended to upgrade those territories to states once they were filled with large white populations. And then the kind of pattern that you know, it acts out in the overseas. Territories which doesn't quite fit that model. And there for doesn't, you know can't be part of the sort of or doesn't turn out to be part of the national myth as country. I wanna go through start going through the history. But, but, but I'm sorta hung up on like, why was there so much of this like what we will so much of what of that of of of Maine of maintenance of territories when we don't need the resources, it, we need the markets was at the because I know we have some dynamics where it's you know, gives us a little like it's almost like Guantanamo Bay on some level that is a little bit extreme. But that's a model of what we use these. Territories for like, it's outside of the purview the United States, but we still have control. So we can experiment with some stuff, and maybe do stuff quasi-legal that type of thing. Well, so quantum obeys. Look pretty good examples this because you know, now, we think of Guantanamo Bay is for the perspective of, you know, the United States and the national security apparatus, it has been very useful space. It's this little part of Cuba that the United States has exclusive jurisdiction over and jurisdiction that is so complete. It's as if it were a sovereign, but it's not a sovereign and that difference between not quite technically being sovereign is what allows all kinds of legal things to happen or things that would be illegal if they were happening on US soil. So you think of that is very useful kind of space, but you have to realize that the United States had had Guantanamo Bay since the very early twentieth century, and you know, sometimes it had been it had them genuinely really useful other times, it's been a little less. So and there's a kind of history of experimentation what can be done with it Haitians who are coming to the US mainland can be detained there. That's something that happens before it gets its use. And I think a lot of the history of the US colonie. Empire as opposed to the history of the pointillist empire in the military basis is history of speculative, speculative desires, but desires, don't always pan out. So this is great enthusiasm at the end of the nineteenth century for the United States becoming a big colonial empire for having Hawaii, and the Philippines, and these will be, you know, highways to Asia, and to trade with Japan, and China trade doesn't really become a huge thing. But nevertheless, in the same way that you can you know, couple can fall out of love, but stay married. A country can grow less imperialist or sort of lose its initial imperialist desire and and remain an empire. And I think that's the history of of the US colonies at least in the early twentieth century. They're you know, they they do have some kinds of uses for Washington, but they are not the most useful parts of the country. Nevertheless, there's still part of it and part of the country that is neglected that lives in the shadows. That could be very weird part of the country occupy tell us a little bit. How like the guano? I ll. Islands and that notion of appertaining. Which I found fascinating. Yeah. So what happens is there's a agricultural crisis in the United States in the mid nineteenth century. And the reason it's happening is is, you know, kind of fairly predictable is that if you grow food on a farm again your cash crop. I could be grain it could be caught and could be tobacco. But if you it again, and again on the same plot of land, and you keep selling it somewhere else selling it somewhere else rather than consuming nearby or consuming it on the land, and then depositing, the nutrients back in the land through feces or just, you know, by putting the waste back on the land, you end up depleting, the soil, and particularly you start running down the soils nitrates, which are kinda hard to restore if you just keep doing that year after year. So farmers get really nervous about finding some way to replenish, their parched farms, and the thing that does it is guano which. Which is Boqwana can mean bird or bat feces used for fertilizer, but it turns out that this is the droppings of seabirds on these small dry islands that don't see a lot of rain where the birds just land. And you know, they anchovies land on the islands, and they defecate on the islands, and you're just keeps piling up for years centuries and millennia drying in the sun that stuff is really useful fertilizer. And so in the middle of the nineteenth century, this is actually the first US overseas expansion, the United States place claim to nearly a hundred uninhabited Cuanto islands and annexes them to the United States, and there's a quantum island act. That's passed. And it says that these place will be once they're sort of claimed in the claims ratified they'll be appertaining to the United States, which is kind of a weird sort of language, but what it seems to say that they're they're fully part of the United States now that just that phrase appertaining to the United States. That's the legal foundation for the United States is overseas empire. That's the first time that the United States had annexed overseas territory, and there's a supreme court case about whether appertaining really does that mean that these places are really part of the United States or not and the supreme court decides. Yes. So if it's just, you know hundred small uninhabited islands there quickly scraped free of guano. And then after that, they're not as useful anymore. But nevertheless, they are the the actual legal foundations for a much larger popular empire. You know one. That includes you know, up to nineteen million people by the eve of World War Two. I it's an amazing metaphor that are empire. The project of the empire literally built on mountains of crap. But yeah, that's exactly right. Yeah. And I'll just say one other thing because we talked about the ways in which these places can be useful. And then not have an obvious us from the perspective of Washington, but you know, sort of device. On a little later those quantum islands after the Guana was scraped off of them. They sort of fall into disrepair or just use. But then it turns out in the twentieth century for all of the reasons that they're interesting to birds places to land. They're also really useful for places for airplanes to land. And then suddenly the guano islands become absolutely. Some of them become absolutely essential to the US military strategy. And it is with the guano Alands that the United States fights World War Two in the Pacific interesting. And let's talk about let's move to the the early nineteen hundreds when the supreme court does sort of make distinction between incorporated and unincorporated. Territories. What would the implications of that? And what how how much staying power did that have? Yeah. So it's a really interesting moment. So the United States has just acquired a number of populated. Territories. It's cutted Spain's empire in a war. And it's also taking Hawaii American someo. And then there's this legal question of well, what are these places are they part of the United States? And if so how much are they part of the United States? You know are people who live in them automats citizens? There's a law called the fourteenth amendment. That says if you're born in the United States, you're USS and does that apply to Filipinos does the rest of the Bill of rights apply to Filipinos. So the supreme court argues it, and it's it's a contested thing. It's a it's a very public thing these arguments, and ultimately what the supreme court decides is that there's a distinction this novel distinction. It wasn't one that had been around before. But the supreme court introduces it there's a distinction between incorporated. Territories those territories are part of the United States in constitutional sense. So those are the old western territories. And they're also the two overseas. Territories that have. Largest white populations Hawaii and the supreme court decides Alaska, but all of the territories that the United States had claimed from Spain which is where most of its and you'll subjects live those the supreme court. Decides are unincorporated. Territories which means that they are part of the United States, but they're not part of the United States that's covered by the constitution. And so that's why even today you can be born in American family, you're born in the United States. No, one disputes that you have a US passport the stars and flags stars and stripes. Fly overhead, but nevertheless, your US passport does not say your US citizen because the fourteenth amendment doesn't extend to you your US national. Instead, I mean. Put it in context is the same supreme court that basically said literacy laws for voting were. Okay, and poll taxes were okay. I mean, the the the agenda's pretty clear, right? Yeah. And it's actually nearly identical to the court. I mean, there's one member different that decides the first of these cases called the insular cases that also decides plus evey Ferguson, which is the case that enshrines separate but equal as of you know, constitutional way of running the country, which administratively divide the country into two in terms of white and non white the influ cases do something similar. They divide the country into in terms of constitutional zone and an extra constitutional zone. And they also do it appealing to exactly the same logic. You know, who's really part of the country and who's for racial reasons, not quite really part of the country, the differences this, plus he'd be Ferguson. I mean, that's recognized today is one of the sort of worst mistakes in the. Court's history. And it's been overturned. The insular cases are still good law. Yeah. Well, plus v Ferguson we could be a couple of years away from from that from that type of regime returning in some respects. Maybe I'm overstating the case may be a little bit. But certainly the Lochner era may be back soon. But would that said so this law the this? How is it that? Well, I guess it's it's quite obvious. Why it's so durable. Right is because what what why has that been so durable? I guess is really what I asking. Why what were the forces that didn't allow Plessey v Ferguson to stand? But but allowed this to stand. Yeah. I think one difference is that the Jim crow was it was a obviously a form of racist subordination, but it was also fairly public. You know, it was hard to not know that the country had a Jim crow system if you were living anywhere in the country in the twentieth century. Nevertheless, it's been very easy not to really understand the colonial system or even the fact of overseas. Territories if you live in the mainland part of the United States or if you have there in the twentieth and into the twenty first century. So an example of this is even after came Maria hit Puerto Rico, and you know, laid waste to the infrastructure of the island. There was a, you know, made all the headlines there was in national poll that asked people in the mainland are Puerto Ricans US citizens and barely a majority of people. Adults polled were able to correctly say yes, Puerto Rico are US citizens. And if you ask. Adults under thirty only thirty seven percent of them were able to cough up that number. So I think one difference between the racist regime that had applied to African Americans. It was very much in the public view, whereas the colonial forms of subordination and segregation, those those kind of happened offstage at least states from the perspective of the mainland since we're talking about Puerto Rico, tell us the story of Cornelius Rhoads because that is you know, we've talked on this program. You know, that the the long history that the United States has had that in many respects is really one of you know, almost waging some type of war against Puerto Rico and one form or another and Cornelius roads, I think sort of exemplifies that a little bit. Yeah. So I said that the, you know overseas parts of the United States are often offstage from the perspective of the mainland, and what's important to grasp is that all kinds of things can happen off stage that couldn't happen under the glare of the spotlight. And the Cornelius road story is a great example of that. So Cornelius rose is a doctor. He's Harvard trained he's from the mainland. But he goes to San Juan it goes to Puerto Rico, and he goes there to study anemia with a condition from which many Puerto Rican suffer, and so what did you do? Well, suddenly when he hits the island, he just becomes a very different kind of Dr. So first of all he intentionally refuses treatment to some of his patients just to see what will happen he tries to induce disease and other of his patients also to see what will happen. He describes patients such as this to his colleague says experimental animals, and then he writes a letter he writes, one of the most extraordinary letters. I've read as historian where he writes to a colleague to a Boston colleague, and he starts off. It's very chatty letter. And he said, you know, how are you hope? Everyone's well, here's some gossip about the field. And then he says, oh EMMY Puerto Rico, I'm in Puerto Rico. It's beautiful. The island is great. The only problem is the Puerto Ricans. They're awful, they're filthy. They steal frankly, they're the worst and the best thing for Puerto Rico. He goes on to say would be a total extermination of the population. And then he says, in fact, I've started it I have killed eight of my patients, and I've tried to transplant cancer turns out, it's very hard to transplant cancer. But he doesn't know that I've tried to transplant cancer into thirteen others. You know, hope your wife's well all best. And it's it's even credible at it. Right. Because he's just confessed seems like he's confessed to murdering people and extraordinarily the letter gets found by the Puerto Rican hospital staff, and it becomes a major scandal in Puerto Rico. Of course, it does. There's. There's an investigation by the government that investigation on covers yet another letter, which the government the governor describes as worse than the first which is kind of impossible to imagine for me. But nevertheless, the government destroys that second letter. So we've never seen it as stories and concludes that he wasn't really serious about what he said he didn't really kill eight people and extraordinarily Cornelius Rhoads is able to just leave. He doesn't face any kind of trial. He just he doesn't even lose his job. He just goes back to the mainland. What happens in San Juan stays in San Juan. And then his medical career takes off. Now it does. I mean, what's amazing about the story? Is that in itself would be incredible? But it doesn't end because as his medical career takes off. He becomes vice president of the New York at the medicine he goes into the army and while he's in the army. He oversees a chief medical officer in a large scale series of tests of chemical weapons on US servicemember. So US servicemembers are have toxic agents applied to the skin to see what happens many of them suffer permanent damage. They're putting gas chambers with gas masks to see what will happen. Some of them are put out in jungles and tall to fight while they're gassed from overhead a lot of those people are also Puerto Rican, and Cornelius Rhoads is right there in the middle of it writing up reports because black skin blister differently than white skin. Cornelius Rhoads, we'll let you know gets a medal for this. And then as a result of those experiments one of the things they figure out that some of these toxic agents are actually good at fighting cancer. And Cornelius Rhoads uses that to become the third phase of his career as the first head of Sloan Kettering institute, and basically one of the pioneers chemotherapy, and that's what he's remembered for for decades on the US mainland as medical hero. The, you know, the father of chemotherapy, and it really takes an extraordinarily long time before Puerto Ricans are able to get the message. Out that this guy who's been on the cover of time magazine zero is actually sort of like Mangla of where to Rico, and I mean for me, that's that's kind of the that's the final extrordinary bit is the informational. Segregation is so tight that it takes decades for Puerto Ricans to affectively do something about the fact that Cornelius rose is being celebrated at openly celebrated as a hero in the mainland, and the people who are celebrating him have no idea what he was up to in Puerto Rico that story is just so nuts mad. But it it. It does capture. I mean, it is almost the perfect metaphor in some respects. Right. I mean that is the the extraction or the the oppression ends up. You know, fuelling on some level at different times the expansion, and the the, you know, the success of the country in some fashion. And then, you know, we don't have too much time left here. But it the the nature of the empire changes to being less, colonial and in many respects, more like like, would you call it sort of through the influence, or I mean, maybe the the Hoover screws story sort of is a good metaphor for this. Yes. So I think there are two things that happen as United States, you know, get through World War Two, it becomes the most powerful country in the world, and it has the option militarily. I mean, it physically can do this. It has the option of doing what Britain had done which is expressing its power by taking a lot of collies, and controlling a lot of the land of the planet right at the end of World War Two the United States actually has occupied zones mainly in colonies, which is slightly lesser number. It has more people who are under US jurisdiction who are living outside of the mainland. Then who were living in all the states. I mean, that's how much land the United States briefly controls at the end of World War Two. And so then faces an interesting question is is it wanna be Britain? Again. Does it want to do that whole thing and claim colonies and annex Japan, and all that kind of stuff, and it doesn't, and you know, it still has a Coney one part there? Still five inhabited. Territories of the United States today and knowing of. People live in them. But nevertheless, the United States sort of HIV. It's away. One thing is it does it seeks to find ways to influence outside of its borders to extend its in project power, not by extending its borders by annexing new places, but by controlling processes in foreign countries, but under girding that. And this is what I focus on particularly is that the United States does this not by obscuring territory entirely, but by claiming just bunch of small territorial points, and by I mean, literally, hundreds that's number foreign military basis that the United States has, but these points actors sort of staging grounds, and beacons, and and just little sort of connectors that allow the United States to spread a much more diffuse influence out throughout the world, which is still under girded by some sort of territorial component. But a territorial footprint that I think looks more pointless than colonial. I mean, it's almost like it's almost. Like the like the web, but like a series of servers. We have something like nearly eight hundred bases across the country. I mean across the world, it's a network, right? And and how does that is that is is the the influence there exclusively? Is it projecting power from a military standpoint? These are, you know, we have the high ground in these eight hundred places or or we have control, you know, need be, you know, the harbor or is it also a a cultural one too. Yes. What's what I think? So interesting about the basis is that their purpose is military. That's what they're there for. That's why we call the military bases. But that's not all they do because you have to imagine these places as little or in some cases, actually, not so little enclaves that are full of people from the United States. And there's all kind of interesting contacts between people on the base often who have quite a lot of money compared to the surrounding region and the people around it. So in the book, I tell story about the complicated interactions that people who are on bass have with folks who are living in the shadow of the basis, and it actually becomes a really important vector for the spread of US culture. So one of the questions, I take up in my book is why does Liverpool become this sort of world city of pop like wiser so much. We know about the Beatles. But you know, like the bench is like five hundred bands. There's a lot of you know, bans that like we're pointed in the direction of the Beatles. You know, we're doing that. Kind of music and they're all coming out of the Liverpool area. And why is that because Liverpool hadn't habitually been the major city for pop music in Britain. And the answer is that, you know, Liverpool is in the shadow of the single largest US air force base in Europe space called burden would and it's really clear that not just the Beatles. But all these other bands are kind of subsisting on. I mean, you know, these guys in the base where very rich who were going out into the clubs at night who are demanding US style rock, and you know, Ringo's step dad works on the base makes money there and gets all these records as a result of working there that he gives to Ringo. John's mom is what's called a good time girl. So should I imagine. She spending some time with a guys from the basis, she also has an incredibly uptodate record collection. And that's that's how Paul gets records to enjoyed sort of steals from the local record shop, which is also bristling with all kinds of like, really good. What they then called race records, which are African American records of African American music and all of that is coming. From the portal of the base where there's just all this money. There's all glamor, and they're all these guys sort of you know, waiting to spread it around for willing young teenagers who can play US style rock. So it's not entirely surprised that the Liverpool area becomes an area sort of where rock takes off because these bases. Are you know, in some ways little portals of the United States and little portal's, not just of US military power. But of US, you know, industrial standards, and culture, and all language, and all these other things that come with the United States that seep through the portal as well. Well, it's it's fascinating stuff. I wish we had more time to get to the the the standardization of screws fascinating and longtime listeners of of of this program. Will remember the story of the Northern Mariana Islands, Jack Abramov and Tom DeLay? And how they would visit that in the mid odds as a way of basically getting made in you.

The Scourge of NBA Previews

"We're back. We're back talking into the homes, voice Roth. Do you like my Mahomes voice? It's, it sounds painful men. It's demonstrably painful. Someone told me you have to talk like Alex Jones, imitate Kermit the frog. So I started toying with Kermit the frog ear, turn in the frogs horse. Marcus Peters. Throwing the flag was a false flag. I woke up this morning with a kind of a froggy shitty throat as listeners will notice. My first thought was like, I could probably do Mahomes today as needed, but I don't you more. It's hard. We more Mahomes or cry. I wish I was more craft I woke up and was just like, oh, beautiful more. But yes, Adly not crepe myrtles that's for breakfast. Again, warn delightful. Opening my closet, and it's just all of that won a blue shirt with a white collar, just twenty of them. And I'm like, what? Where are we going today? By the way he was at he was at the fucking McGregor fight. Did you see that? No. That's fantastic. Did he sit. Sit. Oh, he was. He was I think he was in the row. First of all, he was with. He was with a woman who is very much not his age. Oh yes. That's his. His lady friend refused Noel, Lander. The youngest person on the deadspin staff. He had a very special lady friend smush brush land run frown. I think the action almost when when could be flipped over which was fucking amazing when for it was like it Soviet or shall fight come to you. And but I think he was close by Twitter like had gotten a little screen, grab of of of craft in the fucking stance, looking. I'm on Spro Maher mar award, Sean dog, a half dozen Dagestan. You guys like whipping chains around their heads. Craft is like all deer like, well, it's happening now and this it. I felt like in some ways I probably saw the best parts of that fight happened. It seems like afterwards and then also could be gift and watch. Yeah, yeah, you didn't have to actually watch because I think the fight itself proper was like fourteen minutes of them just riding on the ground. That's artist elation. Say like, that's how mixed martial arts like works for me, like to the extent that it works at all as I don't understand what's happening. So it's kind of like hump and slap each other. And then one guy jokes and other guy than like, you don't have to watch it anymore. Like I really see see, had short tweak their rules to prevent over too much grappling like they don't want guys down on the ground because then you just it's two guys sort immobilize, Joe Rogan shouting. Checked lawyer looking like, can't see anything. Some guy like padding the back of another guy's head. Sports even better. 'cause I'm LSD microdosing. Joe Rogan's macro dosing, these pioneering the the new approach to that. I still think it's amazing that that sport, Joe folk and Roget's incredible star head commenter, and it's fans still complain about not feeling legitimate. Like you have both of your commenters need to be wearing shirts if you want anybody to take it seriously man. Like that's that's baseline shit like Carlos Mencia did Sunday. You could make fun of football? I think I'd get mad about it is kind of a shame that they get a much higher energy like the closest football fans came to that was Dennis Miller, and that guy was just Medicated in all the different another direction. You know, at least Rogan's bringing the big energy like Miller is just kind of there being like. This reminds me of like it says here, dictator named TK like just. I, I've had this tape before where it wasn't the worst idea to have a sort of interloper in on the broadcast, not at all, but they would always pick the worst people. I know this Miller corn Kornheiser, and Rush Limbaugh God, just people that couldn't be bothered. The Limbaugh thing was amazing too, because like I remember when I started that was like, I think the first piece I wrote for deadspin as a staffer, and I remember just like asking the Young's on the staff if they remembered it and they just they were shocked that had ever happened. I mean, it lasted for like a month, but it was like what a bad idea that is Dennis Miller. You can kind of see where you're going with it, but Limbaugh like it's weird. Remember time in the NFL was at thirsty when they like needed that juice that like a weird popular asshole would provide. Well, the sad thing was that I think Limbaugh of those three Limbaugh cared the most. Yeah, he was actually a football fan. Yeah, Tony Kornheiser first of all, he didn't even want to fly to the games. He's in croq-. It was like really upset. He had to fly then. And then, yeah, Miller just had like he just had like a little note cards. Like, here's what I wrote in the writer's room. Oh, we're going to mention, mentioned Sam Drucker this week. Was fucking stupid yet. So Limbaugh gave so. But basically that ruined the chances of any other interloper coming in if they were gonna have Barkley in the booth or something like this. So now ever just like progressively more boring, ex players at least like like Tony romo's pre cog like that's nice, but the like Jason Witten and stuff like that, like this dude can barely talk, but that you'll be like remember owning on a fantasy team. That's the future of light-colored way MS. Okay. Tessa tour is now like it's it's becoming real clear and somebody mentioned this. I was go read by this week that he is a UFC announcer. Yes. This Monday night football. He's really doing he's stretching out and exploring the studio space perhaps to excess like, I guess that's what happens. You can get a really good gig. He I remember reading stories about him when he got the job and he's like there's one personality type for like TV dudes. That is the biggest red flag to me. Seth MacFarlane has to when they're. Like swinging fifties, rat pack guys, just can't trust that shit at all. Any of these guys are like, I'm looking to bring back the elegance of Sammy Davis, junior barf into a woman's handbag like that's that's like goal for you. Then like I hope you fall short of it. It really is weird. The guys who were like, we got bring the rat pack back. That's that's what's missing you. Member is drunk assholes, right? Ad-libbing on stage for three hundred bucks a ticket in suits. That's what it's all about. Just getting dressed up. Getting shit faced grabbing a waitress and then you do it again the next day. That's the dream baby. Whatever happened to real new. Whatever happened to big band. Yeah, that's yeah, we got. I think that that's it McFarland definitely is like into that shit and has recorded albums and stuff like that. Dude, dude, he's recorded. He has a fucking Christmas album. It's completely Ernest. It's fucking rotation on my direct TV Christmas channel. It drives me nuts. He's all full to the. Are they original songs or is it just him singing things like, you know, the fucking he sings the Christmas song and it's like, you can hear necking coal just barking into his own grave rich people and remains over and over rich or fucking wild. That is incredible. Just the idea that like nobody's like, well, you don't need to record that. There's already a lot of like really popular like of canonic recordings of it and he's like, have they been done by the voice of the head? Yeah, Jesus Christ fan. He does. He does. One other does want original Christmas song, and it's. It's awful. It's it's Christmas dreaming. Yeah. And and the title of his holiday for swing terribly just doesn't even scan that's not us in holiday. If you wanna do it come on dude, and I swear it's not a joke. Like one day he will get. He will get mocked to the point where he, he says, well, it's just a joke and but but it's not a joke because he does Vegas shows and old biddies are like, have you heard this guy sing all? He's apparently cartoon, fell to one a nice young man. He's completely poor less. You know. Sweet. This. Sure. He and Robert Kraft of shared the same special friends. Oh, I'm sure. Yeah, really extraordinarily. By the way speaking of New York, New York, you had a very New York New York experience today? I did. I did, and I'm happy. I had a bad commute. I'm not afraid to say, you know, a man. I made some mistakes this morning. Things didn't go the way I wanted them to. And so I was already running fairly late when I got on the train. I did my usual thing right. Touch the sign that says downtown four, five, like a fucking Notre Dame player, touching the play like champions today sign and I was focused on that because you know, it's right above the stairs in wanna fall down, touch it. And I looked down and I king very close to stepping on, I guess it would be a baby rat. It was the size of a mouse, but it had a really long tail and it was dirty. So I think that you have to say that that's a rat and clean New York subway? Yeah, right. Yeah. Or like one that was just going to work? I seen a rat in that subway station, go down the stairs between the local to the express, and it was. It was kind of cute. You know, because it's not really built to go downstairs. You're watching a little fat, but go up and down. But also I don't wanna watch Iraq commute that shit's. That's not cool to me either. The rats is annoyed about Andrew Cuomo is, you know? Yeah. Yeah, I'm sure that they're just like, they're, you know, I guess in some ways, I guess it's good that they have so much garbage to eat in the tunnels like they probably like that, but they have to be frustrated by inconsistent. The services. I also would touch the like the sign of the four, like going down into the station. Took. That that makes me happy to know that I'm not alone in doing and you're not wish they had like she had a bronze bust of boss tweed. Rub it all, then you go down. You just do your podcast like fucking champion like that, but now you can't now it's not bring you good luck because you or is a good luck that you that you didn't step on the rat or is a bad like that you were that stinky. Yeah, requires more study, but I would say that it felt like bad luck mostly because I kept thinking about how gross it would be to step on the rat. Obviously be worse for the rat, but I don't want to my feet and rats in general. Like I would like to keep those two as far from each other as possible. I'm happy. Let them co exist. I understand that the city belongs to the rats now, but yeah, that was that was that was closer than I would've liked. Let's see, break, come back. We, we have to talk about actual sports. Pay. I'm Melissa Kirsch editor in chief of life hacker, and I'm Alice Bradley life, hackers deputy editor, and we're the hosts of life, hackers podcasts the upgrade on the upgrade. We help you improve your life one week at a time. We talked to guests like former hacker. Hector Monseigneur about online security needs to be aware of how you could be attacked. It needs to be aware of what your weakness and Alan Alda on how to communicate more effectively. And in order to achieve that, we start with teaching exercise to rive improvisation and sex therapists, Steven Snyder about how to have great sex in a long term relationship. What really works under those circumstances is if you enjoy the other person's selfishly k. your life, it's terrible. We can help. Find the upgrade wherever you get your podcasts. Or back for back by. It's almost time for almost two time for it to be very close to your by the beginning of the NBA season. Rather you fired the fuck. This is my favorite time of year man. When you're in the early middle part of the preseason. Oh, man. When I hear about tweets from MBA preseason games, I my balls just turn firm like a fucking each. It's like a weird billiard situations, terrible. You should actually see a doctor. We need to talk about the phenomenon of overwrought NBA season previews because it's gotten way the fuck outta hand. I'm looking at espionage website right now, and I have friends that has been Asian, but they did a whole big like snowfall Sean form thing called NBA flicks which I guess take on Netflix, although they're not launching a streaming MBA service, which is probably for the best and I'm looking at, they got Photoshop LeBron with a gold chest plate with gold ads and he's got zombie is for some reason they just made his is white and he's got like a gladiator like skirt like splaying out of new and it says legend the ascension who like like, it's like it's going to be like an assassin's creed. Read like legend. The ascension is very much like the type of movie that when I worked in a video store in the nineties, there just be like two movies with that title would come out every week and like Christopher lumbar would be in them or something like that. You just this last Lance Henriksen. Sorry, that was that was just a bit of the trailer that was enough of the trailer where you won't get to end Lance Henriksen. Yeah. So these things are completely over at first of all. The NBC's doesn't start for a fucking week. Secondly, nosy, I give a shit because it's the October. Yeah. Thirdly, we all know how it's going to fucking in that part is the part that I think colors all the rest of it because like some of it is just we eat too much garbage like you and I, everybody, we work with a lot of people listen to this. That's just we need to fix our diet that like there's just a lot of like, it's it's ridiculous. I think to have a super overrun NBA preview, but also like those making us fucking read it. You know what I mean? But like it is a little bit ridiculous to get your, it's harder to get keyed up for basketball win. It's like an eighty degrees here today to like it just doesn't feel like basketball season at all, and then it really isn't going to be basketball season until like Christmas. No, of course, not Chris, the unofficial beginning. And even then I'm like, it's like a bowl game, you know, and I thought cared about basketball a lot. But like I think the only time I ever cared about a basketball game before Christmas was ever. A year at thanksgiving. The nets usually play. I'm like thanksgiving night and I'll go watch with my friends when I'm home. Yeah, I just get really like the NBA fan boy thing where it's like as more than league. It is a kaleidoscope. Rainbow of sights and sounds and cultures the likes what you cannot believe. And then that basically boils down to like Eric Bledsoe, like posting a picture of Jaanus, eating pasta on Instagram and hashtag dead ass. Not really that it is. It's fun. It's better than any other pro sports league like, absolutely no argument for me there, but also like it doesn't need to be anything bigger than it is like, I for sure have written those pieces have believed it at the time. I also feel like it doesn't. It doesn't add anything to my enjoyment of it to think about how important it all is like the espionage stuff has credits on it. There's like a trailer for their preview. They do. They have so many talented people work there, like the people that do these things are geniuses. The people like those things all look cool as hell. It just conceptually it's a little much probably it's a little, it's it's not necessary. Then I'm looking over a. I'm looking over at the ringer and it's like, oh, Brandon Ingram, make the leap. You may not know Josh heart yet, but you will, Josh. We're about to see a new Jaanus onto Toco. This sees of ringers stuff is. I mean, because to me like the the munition stuff is like excusable because of how much. Artful nece went into it. The ringer thing is just like everybody yells about the NBA for three consecutive weeks, and it's it's kind of beautiful in its way. The, I guess, just 'cause like the Brandon Ingram thing is like everyone on staff is like weighing in. Like, I think that's like credited to like ringer staff, but that's only one guy like breaking eating a bunch of tape and being like, yeah, he looks good. It's like fifty guys being like, oh, you know, depends on his perimeter game, but yeah, probably everyone, shouting. Oh, my God Fareham at each other. Oh God, which I mean again, like I'm excited about the NBA season two. I just like you got to keep your fucking powder-dry man, like it's still humid. Do you know what I mean? Like it's not fall yet. That's right. It's Tober and it's sucks. Like it's it's always the best month of the year. It has been eighty five and like just absolute hot steaming death outside this week's. We all have south. Carolina's weather now, that's the way it is. It's awful. Everything is mud. There's mud in like my veins. There's like mud everywhere. It's unlike the trees. It's like dripping onto my car. There's nothing but mud and bird shit. Everywhere we were at leaves are still green at this weeds. Like there's just choking weeds, like reach out and grab me wrap around my leg, try dragon. We had this last weekend. We went to my niece's birthday sister has a yard, and it was like the ground was super like it was muddy. It was like kind of squishy wet sounds when you're walking in. It hadn't rained in days. It was just like that my wife got like those like bugs bites from like weren't even mosquito things. There's like some other weird like Welt deal. It sucks. Asked the world actually out here. Yeah, it's often. Yeah, in the ground is like a sponge. I live in a fucking mangrove swamp. Hey, and I completely understand that nature is at war with us now, like we have not treated it well. And I guess this is just the way it's going to be. But at the same time, like I do reserve the right to complain about it. Yeah, because they're not doing anything about it. The report came out. The report was like, we're all good dying, twenty forty. And then Republicans were like, well, that's just like your opinion, man, that's people the sizes at its comes out and then they're like the sciences jets. Like how much more science do you fucking need seriously like? And it doesn't need to be one of not to be like the way that like as Sammer tweeted earlier this week that like the entirety of the climate to for the last twenty years has been like copious amounts of science. And then like every time it snows every conservative like media, commentators see we could use them global warming now. All right, global warming discourse. Like it's getting like Trump can't even like manage that shit. Like he's just look to see Soros and then just like goes back to bed like, and you know, whatever. Like, I guess that's how it is, but man like that feeling of time wasting away while like category four hurricanes batter the. Entire United States for months on end not cool. I personally am not into it. I'm not into it either. And in fact Trump yesterday, like he tweeted he, he basically said that the people who protested outside the elevator were Jeff flake was Jeff fucking flake who sucks. He said that they were paid. Protesters, of course, is not true. I also said that they did such a bad job protesting that the people who were paying than didn't want to pay them and now the protesters upset about that. So just like just an amazing solar system of law and also, I mean, the basic y comes from something he saw on FOX and friends, which is often true that leg. It's basically you can track it. Basically, he watches the shit on right on his tvos on delay. So it's like they said somebody at seven, forty five, he tweets at eight thirty, but also, and this is what's amazing about, like every accusation that not just Trump that people on the right have had. It's all just them revealing it as the things they would actually do when they get in power, like all this stuff about like FEMA camps. And they're gonna take. That's actually them. That's the shit they wanna do. They just want to put immigrants in them. They didn't think it was gonna be like patriotic gun owners like that was their fantasies are all the things that they imagined the other side wanting, which is just the other side really doesn't seem to too much of anything Trump when he had like people come to announcement in two thousand fifteen before he was the future when he was just like some television asshole saying he was going to run for president. Those were paid people to come to that and cheer for him. And then he refused to pay them for months because that's him and like it's the same shit. Like, I don't think he remembers that. I don't know that he remembers like what he had for breakfast this morning, but at the same time, like, geez, it's just that part of it's tiring. Like if he was at least coming up with stuff on his own, you could just be like, wow, this guy's mind is just completely a wad of old wet ham. It's amazing. I mean it is, but also he's getting it from TV and getting it from his back catalogue, but he needs to step his game. If we're gonna be stuck with him, it's president for another fifteen years. I wanna see more. Yeah, I always just I shouldn't be aghast. That sort of accusation blows right over, but I was still every day I'm gassed and I was just its incredible, just really, really fucked. It's a bold strategy to just fuck up so much every single day that no one can pay attention to it. Like I feel like I've tried it like I back myself into that sort of approach for months on end and I found it very stressful. Yeah, because you end up being the guy Twitter's like in twenty eighteen. This is what our president is saying. Think about that. Yeah, no ship like my friends and family are doing intervention because I tweeted the word boom. Standby for news breaking and something that somebody else broke. That's the dream, be one of those dudes. Get a break, come back. Hi, I'm Madeline Davies host of jazz avows dirt, cast Dirk cast digs deep on the shallow industry. Celebrity gossip giving you an inside. Look at how famous people publicists tabloids and even Scientology come together to create the celebrity news. You love to hate. Criminal activity and even one death that were covered up in order to protect the church. You can find the show on apple podcasts, NPR one wherever else you get your podcasts. Or back we're back almost. Yeah, you're getting there by the end of the podcast. We're both going to be full Mahomes. That'll be amazing. This is going to be. Great. Pretty fast. I reckon. Yeah, it goes. It goes right into the sling blade. Yeah. I don't think I think we're far enough removed from sling blade start doing the ironic sling blade that might be that could be something to put in the hopper though if borat stopped working start in each other with sling blades, I think Austin powers is next. Maybe maybe the sling blade one. Oh, before I answered the before before we answer some of these questions, you mentioned a Trump and eating breakfast. What do you eat for? Breakfast? Could question. Not a serial guy, right? No, to to sloppy does right. Don't milk. He thinks milk is weird and to be honest, I stayed with him on that. I think that like it is a little weird that we drink that so much, but I don't know. I mean, it's weird. Like I feel like steamed trae eggs, like just like scrambled eggs from the Holiday Inn. Breakfast buffet is like kind of a move that I could see him doing, but I don't. I don't know like he doesn't like food that has tastes. He likes things that are cooked thoroughly because he's a germaphobe and then he just likes things that are like either like a paste or like a kind of like a chew toy or like a doughnut. What are you know? Oh, he would definitely. That's a good point. Yes, because he eats sweet garbage cake all the time. So yes, like a big shitty doughnut like. Or if you think he's a jelly Donut guy, or is that too? Is that does that leave too much to chance? I think, yeah, I think that's too much to chance. It's too, you know something gushy you know, it's it's to lately homosexual for him, right. Come out like Boston cream. He's like Jeff Sessions. Eats those. Does he eat with? Does he with his hands? Oh doughnut with a knife in four that we are in dark territory here, but this is that's starting to sound about right? Like a big like wanna get stuff on his hands like he can tell you, doesn't you Kentucky Fried Chicken with his hands. That's a good while he likes Kentucky Fried Chicken, though he likes, he likes hamburgers hamburgers, but he doesn't like this is a great thing that old people do. They like pick up dribs and drabs of old dietary trends and make them a habit. So he'll eat like McDonald's burger, but not with the bun on it. So just like that little gray disc of like a flu via and like meat by products and he'll eat it with with like, gleaming stemware earn less like whatever like a knife and fork got washed the carbs. Yeah, but using incredibly my parents are like that to where they like they keep talking about how they're going to change their diet and stuff like that. And they're like, so we've removed red meat and emphasize pasta. And I was like, I don't know. One would tell you to do that. Like I don't even know where you got this idea, but it's all just like stuff. They remember from, you know, ten years ago and they're wondering why they're gaining weight when they've just decided to go into like an all Martin's potato role diet. Okay. There is an Instagram of him eating McDonald's French fries. With his hands. It would be weird to eat them otherwise, but also what appears to be. He's got a piece of KFC chicken on a place and these looking at the camera, like what a good boy. I am. He has a four in his hand. He's ready to go to town on some room temp chicks. The other thing is that I think there's a, there's a napkin on his plate, so I don't know if he eats his food on top of the fucking napkin that it'd be incr- that's like next level germaphobe. And then it just gets thrown out like a fine high. Jiffy thread count cotton thing, and then he's just like Donna chicken, touch. Paper, it's a paper napkin, some maybe he wants it, absorb the oil before he cuts into it, and these cutting into a napkin, and like little sheds light. Sounds like Vanity, Fair nap. Like clients friend, the fives planned paper napkins. I always think about that when I'm at this market and buying eggs that brand Egli best. I know he's never been in a supermarket, but the idea of him being like Glades best. Terrific eggs, the best eggs. He definitely he definitely eats the bad pastries, like the conference from patriots. Like, you know how like it's really hard to fuck up a doughnut, but you'll go to a business meeting and like some other donuts will not be good covered with plastic chocolate. It's got sprinkles on it. He's like all called dibs on the sprinkles fucker, loves sprinkles. Let me put a tarp down on played digging just shards of like glaze everywhere, and he's like, that's how you can tell it's good like like digging into jelly it with a spoon like it's a soft boiled egg. Like like, obviously it sucks Mondo. He's president of the United States. I don't want to minimize that, like I hated every single day, but the photos of him like like looming over some food and looking at the camera with a big smile on his face. If I could inject those into my body, I would do it the taco salad one where he's like, like leering over it just sort of like like ready to just pound like a like a bunch of unseasoned ground beef in a tortilla shell. So good. The eating or just standing. Stands like a saw horse. It's incredible. Like he has no idea how to bend his knees. It's the only in. Cricket. Really. If you looks like he's every time his whole family are some really good standards just in general, but I love what he's got that angle going, and he looks like he's standing on a hover board for the first time. He's like moving a little bit incredible. Really. It's just amazing. Brian writes in which sports refereeing is the most subjective this this. By the way this question comes after angel Hernandez only made a day for himself. Baseball. Yeah. God. I mean, he's what's incredible that Hernandez talking to some like he's both of the worst and the most confrontational like it's every flight we should just thank our lucky stars that he's not a cop because he's just, I mean, these close as you could get cook, like the version of being a copper. There's basically no chance of ever getting hurt. But yeah. Wow. So my first instinct is hiring baseball umpiring although there is replayed now the one, the the referees, I feel the worst four generally our NFL wants because I don't feel like they're just constantly adding new rules and not explaining to them how to enforce it. So they just go out there and fucking each shit every week because they are incorrectly enforcing rules that nobody understands football. Oddly is not. We're not been my choice and I don't think I was gonna say baseball until last night. Yeah, because I thought I thought that they had sort of corrected a lot of things when they got rid Eric, Gregg, who was the worst fire? Very history of the universe. And there's enough technology now where I think it's ESPN they have the, they figured out a way to make the strike zone to put the strike zone on the screen at all times, not make it too invasive. Like it's it's like the very first FOX box at FOX did. Yeah. With the score tracker, Lawrence like it's just it's just a very faint white box. The one. The one was just the margins of the strike zone, which I thought was pretty good. Oh, yeah. That's not bad. That's not bad. But you know, you can sort of tell, and I think that they tried. They baseball has tried to make those strike zone more more uniform even though obviously, sir in their annoying, but didn't they. I'm I'm going over the place, but didn't they have a showdown with the association yet over this years ago, they didn't let your pet who was a real shit bag. Yeah, they didn't like that. It was that they could basically be seen as wrong in real time on television, which I think I would want that at my job either, but the way that they sort of handled, it seems like in this case, I guess the argument for not having it there is that you know it is subjective and like if an empire is consistent, you can live with that. If somebody's calling a high strike that day, as long as it's calling for both teams in every pitcher, then like hitters adjust because their whatever fucking supercomputer athletes and can do that sort of thing. And that's cool, I guess. But it is. I think to me like the idea of like robot which is the sort of every time angel Hernandez, you know, screws up something that you see people talking about. I don't. Really like that idea that much, but I'm not sure that I can defend my dislike of it, like it is. There's so many ways for fires to mess up and replayed at this point consistently doesn't really seem like, you know, you still see calls get made wrong after that. Like there's this whole new panoply of like shitty decisions that have been added by like super slow. MO, we're now it's like if your hand comes off a base at any time in the process of sliding over it or whatever, it's too much. It was nineteen ninety nine. There was a mass resignation of all the unpire 's and was led by can't find the guy who I remember who the guy was, but I can't remember his name, but they they all like the all resigned as labour tactic. But they backfire because baseball is like no one knew the history of umpire strikes is not a not a glorious one. Yeah, they, yeah. The American National League immediately hired new buyers accepted twenty two, the resignation twenty. The resignation, so so that a little bit strategic did not work. And I thought since that had happened that they had done a little bit better job sort of keeping that keeping a more uniform but the but then Hernandez comes around last night and completely blows to ship by the way. The other one is basketball. I think basketball is. Much more. I don't know. I just think I think foul calls are completely fucking subjective as much not more so's holding in the NFL pass interference in the NFL. I don't as much as Bill has issues right now. I don't think that their issues are anywhere near the issues that the Basco. Yeah, I don't think I don't think it's the most subjective just said I feel bad for those for those particular line. Judges the NBA's we are too, because there's a bunch of rules that they just sort of over the course of the last couple of decades just decided not to enforce. Right. I would also talk about figure skating and boxing, but that's judging. There's boxing referee is not quite the same, and there's no referee didn't figure skating still on the ice being like, yeah, which would be that would add some value to me. But yeah, I mean, that's one of the things that like from editing most of divorced there, it's like there's so much of that is like technical and you're basically just like spotting mistakes that people make. If you're taking boxes. Yeah. And so like the artists like the performance quality thing is kind of like been a like, it's secondary, and I think that kinda sucks. You'll see like a fun performer win a silver because like some little kid is who's like weighs eighty pounds capable of doing more rotations on a jump which is, I mean, I guess that's what they asked where they wanted something that was less subjective and they wound up with something way shittier but like more decorative. Trying to know. Let's let's go onto the next question. This is from jed jed says is generally acknowledged that New York and LA are opposite. He's just made up. I like it. New York is full of neurotic eventing officiant, black-clad introduction, intellectual restaurants, vaping airheaded rich hippies who drive that make sense. So those two are opposite. He's what are the other US opposites I've, oh, for New Orleans in Charlotte in Minneapolis, Philadelphia New Orleans. And Charlotte is brilliant because it's like they're both, you know, humid and lake, whatever have that kind of like subtropical vibe. And yet, like one of them feels like a Bank branch, and one of them feels like an opener bar well, but is it New Orleans, Charlotte, new or New Orleans and Atlanta, which are rivals cities, I guess. I mean at Lantis much bigger though, and it's got that like sprawling metro area and stuff like Charlotte is too, but New Orleans is kind of just like. I mean, it doesn't even fit like New Orleans. There's like two cities on earth that are like New Orleans rate like more or less. Whereas I feel like Charlotte is like the thing that defines it is that it's kind of a lot like every other crappy city. Yeah, Charlotte is hard for the south, right? Like fifty times bigger and with a worse airport, right. Any of those towns that have like I think a good way to figure out an opposite to think about what the the fundamental like industry in that town is and then find the opposite of that. So if San Diego is like the navy, right and New Orleans is like hurricanes. The drink then like maybe those two could work, but I think San Diego is like they party more like, whereas Charlotte's just kind of like party Shively all, give you two, I'll give you give you a pair Miami and Tampa. Okay. I can see that. Right? Because they're both in Florida there on the opposite coasts what has really awesome wants sucks. Which one are you talking about? Tip to good one? Yeah, it does seem like it is kind of good. I mean, just because it's not full of like Russian millionaires on cocaine, like driving Lamborghinis into each other, like Tampa has some stuff happening in. It doesn't. It does not. It doesn't. It's got like beer there. I don't want it. Well, whatever. I'm not super keen on going to either of the news people I'd visit in Tampa. I don't know anyone in Miami, so I'm trying to think of not listening. I can just try. What do you think the opposite of Chicago is? Oh, you know, well. Alice or something? No, I feel like they have to be connected somehow because a lot of people have lived in New York and LA. Right. No, there has to be some sort of tether, but like Dallas and Austin. Oh, yeah. All right. Like Dallas and Austin. Seattle and Portland are rival cities, but they're not opposites, right, right. They hate each other, but they're visiting. There's there's a series of cities that I think of is being like effectively similar to each other in Seattle and Portland. I know we're very different, and I hope that people yell at me in the comments for this. I think as being similar, I think as being similar to Minneapolis to like these other kind of like cities where you can like bike really easily and like they care about local food and stuff like that. Like maybe they're a little crunchy. Maybe they're like police forces kind of weirdly brutal seems to be a commonality in cities like that, but it's something like those. It's easier for me to say, cities that are similar to each other than to be like, oh, the opposite of Minneapolis is whatever. Maybe Chicago, Minneapolis, possibly. I don't know. I mean, they're, they're both fun cities, but they're very different. Yeah, one is much more polite. The other one's a bit more rowdy. I think of like Boston and Chicago is kind of being similar. Maybe like maybe Boston Minneapolis are opposites. Yeah, but there's nothing tether between them. You know what I mean? Like he has. He has Minneapolis in Philadelphia, and he only has that really because of the NFC title game, you know? Yes, not. There's only really connecting those two in any sort of way. They're not like. There's no, there's no whore crux Philadelphia residing in Minneapolis. Yeah, and very well said, but yeah, there's also that the thing that I see as that parallel is that like Philadelphia's like super loud ish and like plays it up for a fact. Whereas Minneapolis broadly speaking very polite and they pay that up for fact. But yes, that's true, but they're not zyppah lls or whatever. They don't have anything in common like hundreds of miles apart. So try to give a route or city that Minneapolis would have more more ties to trying to give an opposite for Denver, but maybe San Diego because. I don't know both kind of like outdoorsy in the, you know, assaultive way I don't different been to Denver. Actually, Denver was weird because Denver smells, I was surprised really. I had a friend who lived there and he said that humidity was not a thing there. No, yeah, that's true. And that to me, I like that. Oh yeah, lovely climate, lovely city. I deeply enjoyed my time at the dead. Cast love all Merican cities. That's true. I know. I know they're all check mostly bad. It's rat earlier today. City suck ass. I would live someplace else if I could, but it's this is where I belong. It is hard to find a better a better polar pairing than the New York and LA just in terms of just sprawl philosophy. Yeah, Houston, I mitt, they're just Angeles, San Francisco. We're really good parallel, but I was talking to Levi before we start that like San Francisco at this point is just like not in the game anymore. Yeah, I know. I guess, friend, I don't even know. Yuccas Sanford is just fucking weird. I know it's a fortress, weird mall for people who have too much money by always by the way I was in the Mark of aging is when you gravitate less from New York and over to LA flair that what they said about Portland that it's like thirty year olds go to retire. It's got that kind of like feeling like Los Angeles is really nice. And you know, we talk about living can actually do it, but like, yeah, just be like more pleasant than is remember like, hey, my first business and I was living in New York at the time and I was walking around like from New York. Fook. Looms? Yeah. You could fucking pay me to live in New York. Oh, no. And I understand that completely. I went to school in LA county, and I remember when I first went out there. I mean, I was like depressed anyway. 'cause I was far from home and you know, had issues. I don't actually need a reason to be depressed, but LA county bummed me out like. Fact that it was like, beautiful and sunny every day. I'd just wake up and be like, oh, this fucking shit again. Okay. Which is, you know, again, it was my fault, but it is like, you know, I think that that would still be weird as much as we love going there. It's like I had morning where I woke up in Los Angeles and was like stressed out and needed to get to work. Every time I go there. It's the one thing we're trying to do is like get a particular eggs in which before everyone shows up, you know, like so it does. The weather does have a weird I wrote about this one's where it's like the weather's beautiful all the time. So you feel like shit if you are not maximizing it by putting on Lululemon pants and bouncing down know. A beach on rolling ship like that really do when. So when I was a vice, they had the offices in Venice, Kate, I stayed on the beach and then I walked up advocating to the office was like a mile and everybody that I walked past. You know, this is like like nine in the morning or whatever. Just beautiful people dressed like, you know, enjoying a juice in the leisurely fashion with seemingly no place to go k took a yoga class at like, eleven that day. And it was like eighty people in it. Where do these like? There's no visible means of support here? How does this work? Yeah, all tan, but they're never gonna get skin cancer, and I could not be. That's the one sense in which I'm like better suited for New York. I should always have a slight cough given the personality that I have like I'm never going to be someplace where like my hair looks Beechy. It's not in me. With the lead like frosted tip? Yeah. I encourage someone to Photoshop of Roger Clemens old haircut onto me in the comic change your from David decay. Vid. Yeah, I go by DJ now let's let's go back. We'll finish up the fund. Oh, we're back. Just like that. ROY writes in what would be the ideal size of the earth. I say ROY says, I say, we shrink the earth by third and take out eight hours out of the day. I'm more raise. Hi right now, and I respect how high ROY is in writing this question. I don't think we should really shrink the earth. I think that would be on what air don't don't worry about gravitational polls in like polarities and all out. Crowded nece. Yes, because because ROY was annoyed about travels at the earth to Dan big, but he won. It's still big enough for us to not be living on top of each other. That's and I think he's got it wrong. I think the earth is not big enough yet kind of feels like it in the habitable parts of it. I don't wanna get into how depressing everything is right now. But yeah, I feel like we should probably consider like I would. I maybe let's grow there and I wouldn't big in big in double it or is that way too? That's too much. You know, you'd never even get to Europe. Then it'd be like a twenty hour flight because remember the earth as it is now very big fairy here, it you really and it's a, it's a big, fuck and it's big. It's big. A Michigan once and it was like, oh, exhaust. It's different. Mid western people don't give a shit about that though. They just are. It's different for them that like a long drive. They're kind of like, well, I wanted to go to Iowa and they go. Whereas yeah, you and I, at this point or sufficiently soft city lads that like the idea of driving for two hours like, oh, my God, yeah, and also like long flights now, like because I have a bad back. So it's like it's a flights more than like an hour. I'm like, okay. Yeah, I'm, I'm real fucked. So flying flying twenty hours just to get to like Europe. That might be an issue for many done it go Brazil's along flight. We've been to Asia a few times, and that's it's all awesome. And it's definitely worth it, but also like nothing is. Well, there's things that are shittier, but like a whole day spent in airplanes just miserable in every facet. Yes, it's pretty bad. I did it once unto back when there was like smoking. Yeah. That's true to the. I went to to Europe. I remember getting up these the bathroom in the middle of the night, and there's a bunch of Italian guys gun in butts back there. A blast we've been together. This is the lounge, so. All right. So then I would in big in it maybe like one one point two or under and twenty percent like make it a little bigger, not like wooden double wouldn't make it Jupiter sauce or Jupiter-size. I mean, that would be fucked and the new stuff for getting his cool a, not like more desert's like I want like a weird forest. Oh, yeah. That would be cool. Couple of hundred thousand miles of like rainforest. Yeah, or like a like a Dr Seuss type for Burton movie where everything's curly. Yeah, that's fine. Let's do that. Let's get some of it should be. Let's get a another hundred thousand cubic miles of claim. Asian forest just writes in saves and baseball are bullshit right? I think we've had have we had this discussion not he says a safe should be reserved when you only have a one run lead. If the dump stat, it's not as dumb as holds holder. Amazing what the fuck is a hold is a stat. That they use or it is for a middle relievers. If you're in a sufficiently dorky fantasy league as I am, you would have to think about this sort of thing because you'd be like, wow, Jeremy Jeffress is getting a lot of holds this year. And a hold is basically if you successfully pitched the seventh inning without giving up lead. You're the dumbest thing in the world. You saved part of the game. Yeah, right. It is. It's like a save for a guy that isn't a closer, but as with saves, the rule is sufficiently broad as to be meaningless and useless. It's just another way to generate numbers, I guess for like arbitration hearings or something. But yeah, it's dumb saves are dumb too, because you can come into a game like it's all like that leverage shit. It's all like a Canard for stats people, but it's less difficult to come into the ninth inning up three runs and nobody's on base than it is to get like the last two outs of eighth with two guys on. Yeah, no, I agree. Yeah, that should all be funneled back to Yara or some. Some of the other x v Brian writes in, let's say they'll be decided to eliminate twenty sixteen condense it down to four. What would that do to everyone stats with the top hitter's and the top pitchers still all have the same range of stats that they have. Now, it's a good question. I think that at the top of things the answer broadly b. s. but I think it there would be fewer bad teams and so you'd have to think that pitchers would suffer there just in terms of, you know, part of the. You know, the joy of local baseball or whatever is that like if you're Chris sale, you get to face the Orioles like five times a year. And that's a good deal for you because the bills are bad. Whereas if suddenly the Orioles have had like Paul Goldschmidt redistributed to them than like, that's not as fun anymore. I don't know. It's because I think it ebbs and flows. I mean, you can almost use the playoffs a sort of barometer where you know instead Clayton Kershaw is not facing some shit ass bombed. Yeah, team anymore. That's as in the Saint Louis cardinals anymore. He's got play real. Oh, go off king. Yeah, that is definitely true in the what's cool that the postseason to is like that it's nonsense like Erik Kratz hitting seven hundred, everybody's. That's that's fine. That's going to go on for another couple of weeks. It'll turn back into Erik Kratz, you know, but the, yeah, the idea of like a condensed baseball thing. I thought about that in terms of contracting teams that the Marlins are just a bummer. I was thinking about them a lot this week just because of, you know, watching yelich kick ass in Milwaukee and stuff like that. That guys on this incredibly team, friendly contract is basically like in terms of the value he provides versus what he's paid. Probably the most valuable player in the National League beyond the fact that he's also going to probably win most valuable player in the nationally because of how good he was is you're right, and they just dumped him on principle. They didn't wanna pay anybody like, I don't know that the Marlins deserve to be a baseball team, maybe relegate them like, oh yeah, they definitely don't. I mean, I mean, all the league should have fewer teams. Yeah. I think I think we're almost I believe at the NHL is about to expand. I believe they're going, they will. They already did expand with biggest, but then they're gonna give it team to Seattle at some point. Yeah, I like the idea of of relegation like I think that that works. I mean, and it. It doesn't necessarily work like in the sense that some team that gets it's not like the Syracuse chiefs are going to win the World Series or whatever. But I think it's it's cool in the sense that it introduces all these weird towns into the like always like that with the Premier League that they'll just be like some town called like Swope that just like this is like in there for some reason. 'cause they like had a good run in a lower division and like east for its field should like, yeah, and that's fine. Like the only get a year or two with it, but that's gotta be cool. Like living Syracuse is a drag, you know, like the idea that like suddenly you get the Yankees are coming to town and beating your baseball team like that's kinda neat. Yeah. Like Toledo, mud hens. Get up there. We have our Trump question of the weeds from Aaron, just Donald Trump. No had shave. Good question. So I think the answer is yes, but also there are some photos of him he he's never even appeared to have like stubble or anything like that. He's got that kind of like HoneyBaked glow constantly baby face. Yeah, but their times we, there's like photos like it's all like Vic, burger shit, like just people that dedicate themselves to finding grotesque images of him where like he missed a couple spots. And there's these just like lure like long kind of like we're wolf whiskers coming off like just like completely translucent. I think if he tried to grow beard, it would be hilarious looking. Yeah, he would have the cliff Clave and beard as someone who has a baby phase and can't really grow a professional beard. I think I think he's probably the same way, but I think hair does come out as do the gas to shave. I wonder sometimes if he wants to the touchable saying where like he's in a salon and they're using. Straight razor. I think that the few times that I've had like that, like barbershop shape, I gotta tell you it's, it is pretty cool. It's good. I just have my skin is shitty enough, and I don't like paying extra for things I can do myself, but it is need. I don't think that Trump would let any these paranoid. I don't think he'd let anyone near him. I think he is like true like a like, like just like to razors Gillette that he got in like nineteen ninety. I think he just uses it over and over again. Absolutely. Uses barbasol. Yes, some weird product that like it's weird that they still make it a thousand percent has the yet barbasol Barbara saw, yeah, he's a little. He's a yellow listerine guy if I had to bet. Absolutely. I respect that all the old country club accoutrements. I don't. I don't begrudge. Oh, Dr Moore and recorded by Levi.

We're broadcasting live steps from the industrially ravaged go on canal, heartland of America downtown Brooklyn USA on today's program. Murtaza Hussain reporter for the intercept we're talking about in Iran. Ian activist who wrote dozens of articles for right wing outlets. Here's the secret turns out, it wasn't a real person, it was a multitude of bots that were run by a group called the EMMY K a group that has paid political figures from John Bolton to Howard Dean to help instigate an invasion of Iran connect that with the state. Six of the current situation with Iran of the Trump administration has instigated over the past couple of years, Iran says that the door to diplomacy is closed permanently also Jared Kushner he finally had his bar mitzvah. Oh, excuse me, the unveiled his solution to the crisis in the Middle East, and it's basically bribe a handful of Palestinians until the rest of them to in the words of a New York Times, editorial recently commit national suicide, of course, nothing wrong with that, according to contrary views, of course, this plan, not well received by the human beings of Palestine in queens way, it looks like we have a great new DISA district attorney. If you're a landlord slum Lord or an employer. Or an ice official be worried. Hell, yeah. Excellent news with Tiffany, Coban terrible news in Brazil, where the politically driven supreme court have rejected a habeas corpus Brid by political prisoner, Lula, da Silva will get into that, or Oregon climate Bill is dead. Senate Democrats say after Republicans went to some pretty extreme measures to kill it. We'll talk about that Robert Mueller is set to testify to congress drama. Bernie Sanders is using his massive Email lists to warn immigrants about ice raids along with get funding to abortion clinics. Wayfair employee's plan walk a plan of walkout to oppose furniture sales to migrant detention facilities. An appeals court says the census case is not over even if. If the supreme court, upholds, the citizenships question. And repeated mistakes in a phone record collection program led the NSA to shut down the controversial program. Nice to note. There was a lot of mistakes there congressman Duncan Hunter used campaign funds to pursue affairs and was literally. In bed with lobbyists. You know, at the political guy that got the right that piece super stoked Democrats monument lawsuit against Donald Trump can proceed federal Trump, the federal judge rules. President South Korean president moon says the new US North Korea summit, possibly in the works and NRA has killed off and the NRA has taken him and fired at NRA TV. Too bad actually, we didn't even use them for clips anymore. That's how a relevant they were. But maybe it will give us a couple of days of Vic burger material. So that'll be fun. Maybe Sam, we'll get some video equipment on the cheap that was SAM's very, very unbranded move tweet out that he would like some video, there's some type of fire sale. I can't believe grant stints field seventeen seventy six wasn't enough of talent to build a television that were around which one was grants. Stench field. Oh, yeah. Brennan says shots with the auto Dan or shots. Not food and and zero. Yeah. Could trigger locks put in place? Wow. There's also McCain brench angle to that story very excited. The best thing that came out of NRA TV was definitely the Meghan. Mccain brunch angle, but let's start in a on a hopeful note in a great way. It as of now Tiffany Coban has an over one percent lead over the machine candidate Melinda Katz, who was endorsed by hack. And blowhard Joe Crowley, who, of course, lost the seat, the AFC and fuses together, Wall Street machine politics, as so if it stays over one percent, there will not be a recount and Tiffany Coban will win this race. This is hugely significant, obviously first and foremost for the people of queens were all of a sudden, you'll have a public defender, someone who actually cares about Justice in humanity in prosecutorial position. Look at some of the really significant things crasner is done. Remember the photos of the cleaning shop in Philadelphia. I'm stoked to see those same feeds coming out queens, but also nationally. I mean when people like Bernie Sanders put together serious packages on criminal Justice reform, they're going to need the as the cooperate. An implement the stuff across the country. DA's races are absolutely some of the most important parts of electoral politics and Tiffany Coban immediately becomes vital national leader here here, he is here. She is excuse me at her victory last night in queens. Sitting on writing simply because they. To be reminded constitution rates. These. From health issues. In support. In biased towards unlawfully big ten in. Lead his community. Deserves just. Community fiercely. Under the racing the car. Excellent. So this is an incredible breakthrough you know, between her and crasner other candidates across the country. This is Utah. I mean, this is gonna be the actual material break-up of the vicious prison and punitive sentencing, policies and prosecute touro policies that have dominated this country for decades. And it's also an opportunity on the other hand, while you claw backing reverse those things to actually really reinvent. What this job actually is. Maybe this job is about going up against landlords. Maybe this job is about going up against companies and employers and other people that actually cause harm and communities. Eugene potential here, Utah victory. Awesome productivity Coban for queens and actually for all of us. There's definitely national implications from her win. Yeah. And I just want to note the woman standing next to her up. There is Bianca Cunningham. The co chair of New York City say which played a major role in chemistry and for Coban endorsing her very early and I was really excited that we got to be part of it in north Brooklyn. We're very close to Ridgewood queens, and we send a lot of people to canvas also we were superpower. We on now a hyperpower. I'm my God. How did you leak notes from the recordings from the DASA board meeting ups? That'd be awesome of north Brooklyn say, like when people when people were out like, they're all they're like tad it in earnest and early of prisons. We need to go talk to the community oriented, like privately is like the next phase after Tiffany Kabbah on to excel. Telerate up power position, Langone, I told you that in confidence, what did a mix of Machiavelli and sons of out of this pickle. The only way to keep the race forward with Julia salvos to read from the book of readings the samurai manual wolf. I'm not saying shit AO see Salazar and combine or the deciding factor. I think ultimately, all those races are these canvassing operations so you implications. And it's what's amazing about that type of grassroots effort is, that's the, the logistics, and maybe some of the like style is different. But at the end of the day, there's not a massive difference in abroad, principle of lake going somewhere in the middle of like I've canvas than places where you're literally on roads and you walk. The might even be like a quarter mile between houses, and also like in multi-storey buildings. And the bottom line is you knock on somebody's door, and you tell them about the stakes their stakes in the election, and what they care about what they're interested in and why, you know, hopefully, who you're repping is going to deliver for them, and that's amazing for all of the complexities of campaigns. All of the other things that you have to do that. That is such a huge the siding factor. And you can't do that without movements and organizations and candidates that actually represent something like Tiffany Coban. Yes. So it's Utah utes signal, and it's also a signal for people like some now, more and more people calling in and saying, like they're doing things like running for their city council, or whatever do that, do that. They had involved in your local, whatever, you know, whatever you're drawn to the essay, Justice Democrats, even if you think. That the Gramma Kratz are going to work against you in subsequent ballistic fashion. At least you make them do it, right. Like at sometimes their resource. And by the way, I mean, look, you might the queen's democratic machine is a pretty. I mean, you know, we laugh now people like Joe Crowley, but until he lost the AO. See, that's a, that's a person who ran machine in queens, and was a top democrat nationally in the house, who had this sort of machine democratic stuff, which is depreciating because of changes in capital, and so on, but also had a funnel from Wall Street and real estate, this dude, okay? You could say he was upset and a one off. This is a personal rebuke to him. So the thing among many other more important things. But so that's the other things. You. Yes. Sure, they'll work against. There's no doubt but it also could be a situation where you get a couple hundred people even could be enough. To completely knocked them off course. I mean, in an amazingly enough in a place like queens in New York City, which is obviously a massive city. You're literally talking about like ten thousand people. Eleven thousand people, I mean, it's not that many to take on and, and, and see, you know, that there's a lot of glass jaws out there that haven't been properly challenging, and the machine is still quite powerful. Like I don't want to say that it's not the four major unions in New York City indoors, her Bonin cats because you know, they're making a gamble. They don't wanna go up against the machine. They know that if the socialist somehow wins, they're not gonna punish them. But if if they don't support the machine candidate and they win their -absolutely gonna punish them. But I hope between this, and a oh, see, I hope some unions, take a second, look and not necessarily for ideological reasons, although I want everyone to have a socialist ideology, but even just for peer reasons of power and self interest realized that is in their self interest to endorse candidates Coban. There's no doubt about it and know they won't be punished. And the structure of the policies could bond supports will. Disley way, better for people who work than so therefore unions. But, you know, you're, you're not going to be in the room in the same way. Yeah. And start thinking, you know. And again, I, I sympathize, why unions are thinking of, like what small turf they can protect because they've been under assault for decades at the same time if you want to survive, and you wanna win the coming battles for survival. You actually need to think in broader terms in terms of what you actually can win and actually deliver for, and that's represented by candidates like Amman, and one more thing because I know we've had some conversations here, we've had conversations, India say about how we our prison abolitionists. We don't just want Carson ration-. We don't just want to reform the system, right? We want to change it and replace it with a new one and a better one, so for that reason, some people were hesitant to support a DA, because they are part of the car, Searle state, regardless of what they're going to do. There inside of it. But I really think like I have to believe that we can walk into gum, at the same time, we can support this DA because this is the tool that's available to us right now to improve people's material conditions in a very real way and not turn our back on our fellow New Yorkers and ourselves while at the same time looking to a much more radical abolitionist horizon, definitely today's sponsor is skill share, and anyone who goes to S, K, L, dot S, H slash majority report, four is going to get two whole months of totally free access to skill shares entire library of super quality online, courses, and to'real 's skill shares of vibrant, online learning community that offers courses in everything from designed video, editing photography business.

Murtaza hussain. He's writer import for the intersect Murtaza. How you doing? I'm good. Thanks for having me. It's always a pleasure Matata, obviously things. I mean, things have been escalating with Iran ever since Donald Trump took office. And you know this very hard right of Croat's in terms of tearing up the deal, stepping out of our international obligations at the same time, there's obviously, some hesitation inside Donald Trump and within some kind of sectors of the far right of round him. Obviously, there's a lot of reporting. Tucker Carlson is actually been, you know, pretty strongly lobbying against this, and it does seem to me. There's some parts of this authoritarian right wing base that is that's more wary. I think that that's an actual thing. What's your and then, of course, but, you got Pompeo and Bolton and the usual, you know, hard, right? Establishment pushing forward on this disastrous, course, what's your sort of? Read on where we're at from the US side. So took across and I think is standard. They're always become a standard there for packing cannon style conservatism. So it's not progressive in any sense, but it does endorse sort of withdrawal of United States from entanglements in the world, whether the wars, or alliances or any substantial engagement essentially, like turn the United States from an empire in Ethnos, eight Pacific -ly white essay. And in advocating that position, there are certain tactical positions take, which align with progressive ideas now and then, but I think that the overall ideology that he's referencing through, especially when he's getting advice from Carlson is very hard, right ideology. It's a manifestation and domestic politics, if ever reached stage of sentence would be bad, that for progressive causes. Without a doubt, do you? But, but inside that relative context. Right. I mean you know, because even just like practically example like Rokon of teaming up with Matt gaetz. Right. One of the most just. Extremist sort of out of his mind, members of congress, what do you think, though, that in this context that, that formation that people like Tucker Carlson, represent along with if there can be? We see obviously leadership from Sanders and leadership from Khanna. There needs to be a lot more just sort of grassroots left anti intervention antiwar organizing on this. What do you think is it gonna take to kind of pull us back from actually doing this? You know, I guess in this immediate context. Absolutely think that in the context of stopping award would seem to be imminence a tactical alliance. Very enthusiastic on this issue in called for wanted, and it's something which is certainly deductible. I think that it's happened in the past two. Like, you know, people I disagree with about everything packed. You can for instance, I find the correct about issues like the Iraq war, right? So, and he's not even just correct. He's a very eloquent. L L, quit opponent of imperialist wars, Ron Paul was very similar. But can this is what I'm saying, I'm even beyond just the ethics of it. I mean, do you think that there's a way of stopping this? Dropping like I thought the Larry action on Iran. Oh, right. Right. You know, I feel I find that the vision making administration, it's so unpredictable. And it's so haphazard administration does not speak with one voice, forget, the government's seeking invoice, which is rare and almost never happens this, what the political establishment, but the administration different visuals say radically different things on different days. President himself radically different days. I find the prospect of a war to still be unlikely, although he President Trump and his administration to really fully knife, as much closer than it's ever been before. I think that he knows that it will be disaster. And he does not want a war, but I also think advisors trying to block them into a situation where won't become inevitable whether he wants it or not. Bolton Pompeo wing. You're talking about. Both in pump pill wing. And the thing that I think differentiates them and makes them more dangerous than Trump. Is that unlike Trump they've been thinking about this for years and years? John Bolton is wanting to have a war with Iran women. Major themes of his career dog Trump does not have very. Knowledge or beliefs about things other than his popularity and getting reelected, and twenty twenty and I think that when you're faced with people who are very knowledgeable on way, and very committed to you project, and you have someone like the president who is seems, very malleable and dot have strong knowledge strong police, there's a great risk that they can succeed in maneuvering into some him into something which he doesn't necessarily want. What about the Iranian side? I mean obviously the Iranians have reacted very sharply. And it seems to me that at least in one sense that you sort of can maybe gleaned from Trump because he does have no knowledge understanding of any of these things, but that he doesn't get like the basic difference in terms of North Korea debt. There was an in neat goal in having the North Koreans have some type of direct meeting with an American president. That was a major mission. The Iranians don't share that mission. They don't need it there. You know, they actually have a lot of good relationships internationally. And they have a very different foreign policy making process, and, and sort of. Presence on the world stage, so inside Iran, like even as Rohani ands, reef, have had to shift after being the kind of like main proponents of diplomacy with the United States, and obviously Rohani's us, some very provocative language recently to talk about Trump, which is kind of funny. What is happening inside Iran? I mean, there's this mean is there like a right wing tendency in Iran, that, you know, wants the clothes off any relations with the United States is what? What's happening there on that side of it from her since the engagement between the United States in Iran was very controversial inside of your on for the reason that you mentioned that there are very powerful factions. India running government were against any negotiations with the United States. So to engage in that two year process negotiating the nuclear deal required. A tremendous amount of political capital on behalf of real Hani, and the reef and you could say the civilian wing of the Iranian establishment. And they make the argument that the United States will go sheep good faith against the counter argument with the United States cannot be trusted and enemy. And if you look at what happened since Trump Kintu office would be sudden nominee of nuclear deal and esscalation of threats and sanctions, even though the runnings had held up their side, the right way in Iran has been validated and say that we're going to negotiate now wants them. Totally new terms, there's just no political capital and the Iranians in a sense is different from North Korea because. There is internal politics. There are internal politics on their factions are visible factions and no one wants to be humiliated and no one wants to face. And I that's for that is extremely unlikely that is any negotiations unless the first step is that the Trump administration announces its returning to the nuclear deal and it doesn't seem to me that Trump even under stands, what's the deal particularly cares? Because he keeps emphasizing that his requirement for Iran is not nuclear weapons. And the point of the nuclear deal was to ensure that doesn't happen and to impose very strict surveillance on their nuclear energy program. So the idea that it doesn't surprise me at all the recent other people are taking a hard line towards Trump out, because they don't have any choice. There's no way they can engage negotiations with him unless he starts from going back. Into the JC peeling, and he's not gonna do that. And I think for that reason we're talking to see any movement jumps at diplomacy. At least as long as this president is impounded, or if he someone else's what twenty twenty and they want to go back to the JC P away. I think that the money is probably could do that. The issue is the really even if they lose faith, they need to go back to some sort of negotiation with Americans at some point, because economically, current situation is not animal, right? But right. So that makes sense. I mean, it's the sanctions are hitting them really hard people aren't getting vital things like even cancer medications, but, like what I mean. All democrats. I think there's obviously varying levels of actual commitment to this, and there's still a lot of kind of closeness among a lot of democratic candidates. The pack and other right wing lobbies. But what if a democrat, wouldn't it take more, though, like when a next president, half to say, not only are we going to restore this deal, but we actually have to make up for the complete sort of elimination of our credibility, and your ability to trust us. Like, what are the safeguards need to be put in place? I think it's very good question. I think that you've been misfit. She comes back and says that we'll make a deal with you. And also, we will return to deal with you what will happen with an extra. There's always this question. I think that. Irreparable damage is done to the United States buildings do diplomacy by the behavior this administration and its folders very extremist hazier, because they've basically Nile lated American credibility, or they've given the very strong impression that the US is institutionally incapable of doing diplomacy complex sensitive diplomacy such as the JCP away because of their political system. They can't manage their side of the deal. The rational perspective on the Ryan perspectives. The hedge your bets than even if you for years, the next administration, you matern to the deal and maybe some factions lifted you probably still move towards a nuclear weapon at some point every country in the world has gotten a very strong message that nuclear weapons of the only insurance and you could ask Kim Jong on or the Pakistan military on the body was found in territories. That it's a great insurance policy, and you can ask fees, or now, potentially Ron, what happens, we don't have nuclear weap- Saddam Hussein, if that to say that Saddam Hussein is that say that nuclear weapons good you once you world with nuclear proliferation just that because if their decisions because of their destruction of nuclear diplomacy in this case, the US have made that the rational choice, for and usually that it's institutionally hostile towards. So let's talk about this. Unbelievable piece that you reported a couple of weeks ago and a Ron because I think this actually is very important both in terms of the propaganda, and the really extremist influences pushing war on Iran. But it's an Iranian activist wrote dozens of articles for right wing outlets. But was he a real person? What is this ties of break this down for us? There was a very prominent or I'll say very loud, Irani activist writer online has smut olive e. Pushing or the most strenuous most will strict policies from the United States toward Iran, calling for heavy sanctions on Iran. Calling for war with Iran, grieving, and also attacking anyone who comments on Iran and trying to character assassination against them. If fit with this person has much. Pretty from what you're not in US policy towards Iran. Now wants to go with someone contacted me and told me that this individual doesn't exist and not say that they're not writing these articles for Forbes and the daily caller, and the federalist and several other right? Leaning outlets and tweeting everything doesn't the time, but that they are a actually team of people three to five people with a commander in a unit of an organization called the EMMY k which is Iranian opposition group, which we have the distinction of being the one group that's Dirani and regime. And it's other progressive opponents equally agree or horrible and are not a progressive alternative very lawn. Why does everybody here did you? Oh, sorry. Go ahead. Yes. Has its roots in the Iranian revolution. But it was one of the actions, which was defeated by the lights, all those power later on, they'd be developed post like personality. Coulter personality around the certain leaders who still lead you relation, but most controversial, perhaps, the sided with Saddam Hussein during the Iran Iraq war, the very traumatic period, you're on mystery just because they were so focused on coming to power, and you're on any very authoritarian group, very shadowy, and that ties to Saudis and John Bolton and many, many other people so centrally EMMY Kate with behind counting they operate out of base in Albanian, very interesting. They have huge bills and dania, presumably and in DC do being and France, but they had this huge operation with hundred computers focused on spreading their message commenting on every poll on social media, and also trying to get articles planted by Iranian active, quote unquote, posh. What was it project or is a project of this organization? And it's online operations winning and getting articles published in American publications. And they also read in the White House because the White House was fighting has articles to justify its own decisions exit for the nuclear deal. What we are getting idea of how the EMMY k is funded how they get their money. I mean they've also I mean Dave page on Bolton. They've paid Howard Dean they've paid a bunch of other prominent people Rudy Giuliani. I believe is taking money from them. Where did they get funding from? They have a lot of money. It's very strange because they should be, you know, on Kickstarter mode. That's the level popularity they have and the Iranian death row Nydia Ron. That's there's less speculation. So there's speculation that they have friends in Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf countries like Latian that new conservatives on, you can do to support them and also known from defectors from your division, which by some estimates, fifteen thousand numbers that people who are part of your nation are effectively forced give all their income or all their assets to the organization of leaders. So, maybe if you are in the EMMY K, they'll ask you take him walk into a second one in giving the money back and your own credit matter. Because you're part of the organization sort of, like, you know, it's, it's one of the big questions remain remains about them. I would say probably the answers all the above when you think about how they get funds. So you have a fake bought account which got published in Forbes cetera. Federalist it turns out, it's not a real person. It's an online operation run by extremist cold political project as connections with I think, also Isreaeli intelligence, the Gulf Neo conservatives gray are loathed across the board in Iran, and this fake literal, fake news was partially laundered in the Trump administration's public justifications for generating the current crisis. We're in with Iran. That's right. And I think that they're probably more accounts like more fake people and sakes authors out there. Doesn't it doesn't mean that there are no real opposition activists dissidents fighting means just means that people have in advantage of pyschological crisis, which is been generated by the internet's who manipulate public discourse. And the most troubling thing is not that I mean, one of the many troubling things is that it was also engaging in very vicious harassment and characters hasn't against people who really are Irani dissident could the government or supporters of diplomacy rather than war in the Iranian dash breath count, this person's making life health with them. Right. And what that does is it makes a real genuine conversation about US policy towards your on more difficult. It makes it hard. To find a nuance policy that accounts for human rights in Iran, but also does not lead to war, or misery people there. Sanctions and also deals in the areas with US 'cause have legitimate competition where they were on, you know, we can't have an you want to, because people are flooding the discourse in subject with all sorts of misinformation hysteria propaganda. This is just the most vulgar example of that happens all all sectors. Let's take a few minutes to talk about this. Kushner plan that he just unveiled in Bahrain it was boycotted by the Palestinians. I mean, basically, this is the big thing that we've been hearing from the beginning of the Trump administration that on top of all of the oppression and insults of the Palestinians for so long that now on top of everything else. You know, Donald Trump is sort of put this, this ridiculous trust fund baby figure in charge of solving. Well, we always say it's an intractable conflict, me and the truth is how to solve it is actually fairly simple, but there isn't the because the symmetry of power and the dynamics hasn't been solved and nobody's willing to put pressure on Israel least of all obviously, the Trump administration. But let's just play this clip of Kushner, outlining it, and then I'll throw to you Murtaza. I mean, this is if the implications weren't so bad for Palestinian people, there is I mean, this is real. This is very late this very Ianucci thick of it sort of vice thing. Like, we'll let's let's put like the idiot kid who married, the daughter of the president in charge of the most major area failed diplomacy for decades. Here he is numerous well-intended programs. Investments in plans have been. Trailed by violence political instability, and the lack of a resolution to the longstanding core issues of this conflict to be clear economic growth and prosperity for the Palestinian, people are not possible without an enduring and fair political solution to the conflict, one that guarantees Israel's security, and respects the dignity of the Palestinian people. However, today is not about the political issues. We'll get to those at the right time. The goal of this workshop is to begin thinking about these challenges in a new way. Let's try to you this conflict and the potential the entire region through a different le
