"Biden authorized the President Biden authorized the use of the strategic oil reserve yesterday to combat U.S. gasoline prices. It's a fade. It's a fake. Three 50 million barrels of oil sounds like a lot. The strategic oil reserve is for dire national security emergencies. Donald Trump filled it up to the brim, and President Biden had taken up 50 million barrels to make a gesture. It may have a little tiny impact on three days of gas. Three days of gas prices. That's what it is. No other nations are Tapping into their oil reserves and a collective effort to bring it down, not going to work. The kind of amount of oil we consume in the world is one of those pieces of data that nobody really knows. It's so astonishing, high. Except maybe the secretary of the energy, right? The energy will know. How much oil we can. Let's go to her number two energy secretary Jennifer grant on The White House press yesterday. How much oil do we consume? Do you know how many barrels of oil does the U.S. consume per day? I don't have that number in front of me. Some suggest it's about 18 million, which would suggest your releasing less than three days worth of supply from the petroleum reserve. Why is that enough? It isn't enough. Not knowing, by the way, not knowing how many barrels of oil, the United States consumes every day. Why in the world would we believe the secretary grant on those? And if Rick Perry had done that, remember Rick couldn't remember the three agencies when he himself was on painkillers. She'd be if it had been him. He'd be roasted with the turkeys by

Newt Gingrich: 'Trump Was the Most Effective Anti-Liberal I've Ever Seen'

"We're back one on one. This is America first with me Sebastian gorka and Newt Gingrich. Speak again, which let's talk about my former boss the 45th president United States. To you, what did his victory in 2016 mean? I find it amusing that as an immigrant to this nation, I have to remind my fellow Americans that it was the first time in our republic's history that we elected a non politician or a non retired military officer to the highest post in the land. How much for you did he change American politics inexorably? Well, I think if you look at Glenn young Ken's victory, you see an example of it. I mean, young gun campaigned on lowering taxes, less regulation, more jobs. He campaigned on taking on the culture war. Things that I think certainly on the culture war front the traditional Republicans would never have touched. Trump, I think I thought it was an extraordinarily important victory because I always tell people it's not that Trump is a great conservative. I don't think he sat around reading Bill Buckley and trying to understand theoretical conservatism. But Trump was the most effective anti liberal. I've ever seen. He just applied common sense. And did any act that he did things all day every day, and he was steadily methodically taking apart the left's world, which is why they hated him. And why they rigged the election and spent so much time for some literally from before his election. I mean, the first article in The Washington Post on impeachment is like April of 2016. And the day that he is being inaugurated, there's an article in the post on impeachment. And the day after his inauguration, there is a huge crowd and Madonna talks about how she envisions The White House getting blown up as a positive experience. And it was an unending four year war in part because Trump is a genuine threat. He's the first time I think since Andrew Jackson that you had a genuine threat to the

"white house" Discussed on Women of the Military

"In the park. It's not for the faint of heart. And you know, a lot of what we've learned through some of our military experiences for us to self discipline. We just on our website have a blog in an ebook on self leadership. We're now going to start talking about multiple generations in the workforce. What we find as business owners, whether you are intrapreneur, which means you're thinking about going into business or you are a full fledged entrepreneur or a freelancer, again, research shows that after 2025, the majority of the workforce is going to be freelancers. You can go on any freelance website, just Google it, and you will find people that are extremely talented that are offering their expertise as freelancers because it's a way to again have another stream of income while at the same time is giving people that flexibility to not have to, if they don't want to work a 9 to 5, they now have an option to work on their passion and end their passion. And so I have a couple of people that I've outsourced from different websites that support our company. It just gives you options and you actually get to really apply some of the disciplines you learn from time management to your scheduling, even with this. This is two o'clock in the afternoon that you hosted this, but there were some logistical stuff that went behind as well as administrative stuff that went behind the scenes to make this podcast possible. This has been a really great interview and we're almost out of time. So I want to ask my last question, which is what advice would you give to young women who are considering joining the military? That is a great question. I will tell every woman that is thinking about joining the military. I would say make a conscious decision that you can live with and not regret. I really like that because I think that is one of the things I'm working on a book that is on the topic of women joining the military. And that's one of the things that I say. In ten years, if you're going to look back, should I join the military and you think back and say, I really wish I would have. Then that kind of helps you find your answer. There's still a lot more internal work and the pros and cons and your life situation. But I think that's a really good gut check to tell you if you're in the middle on where to go. So I love that it's. And I'm a proponent and one last final thing Amanda, I am a proponent for now at this particular juncture in our life and it's like looking back in hindsight. But really, sometimes it's okay to get advice from friends and family to see what their perspective is on a situation, but also again, sit quietly with yourself and make the decision. Because if someone's living their life through you vicariously, you will make a decision that you will later regret. So my best advice with yourself and make the decision. That's great advice. Thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate having this conversation so that thank you for having me Amanda and I really appreciate you offering the opportunity..

Joe biden wants congress to strengthen antitrust laws make sure privacy is better protected and rewrite section to thirty of the communications decency act to make tech companies more accountable for illegality happening on their platforms according to woo legislation addressing. Some of those actions passed the house. Judiciary committee in june white house officials also are looking closely at the child online protection. Act an existing law to see if the biden administration can do more to ensure platforms are complying with those provisions to prevent harming children but biden and congressional lawmakers are juggling competing priorities and slow regulatory processes that threatened to delay or dilute meaningful reforms to take on big tack congress's consumed with the triple tasks of trying to pass trillions of dollars of infrastructure and social spending funding the government beyond december third and avoiding a self inflicted debt default while both republicans and democrats were alarmed by the detailed revelations on tuesday that facebook which owns both instagram and whatsapp promotes online content and away that contributes to body image issues and mental health crises among children and teenagers translating that into law. We'll take time and a legislative calendar that is short on it and july biden encouraged the federal trade commission to create a raft of new regulations intended to weaken the ability of technology companies to buy up competitors hoard data and further consolidate their control over ever-larger swaths of our digital lives. But those also take time to roll out and will likely face legal challenges..

"Current with all this information Cecilia at the end of the day. Back to your original analysis that both sides are right and both sides are kind of wrong here the white house and facebook who seems to be more right when we think about the question of facebook. Social media vaccine hesitancy. Well i think the evidence is clear to anyone who has social media that misinformation exists. It's so ubiquitous. Definitely there have been efforts to take it down. I also think michael. It's really important to understand that. This is not just social media that so much misinformation about corona virus. Vaccines are also being spouted across cable television and other media platforms so there's a whole ecosystem to contend with but there's plenty of blame to go around among the social media platforms and i think for facebook which has by far the biggest scale much bigger than twitter. It is a place that rightfully should be a focus because if anybody has the resources to fight this it's a company like facebook with one trillion dollar valuation and eighty five billion dollars in revenue. And that have been fighting this and have experts on staff for years. There's a very familiar ring to everything you just said which is facebook and scale means that it has a responsibility to deal with misinformation. It felt like we had that same conversation. When it came to russia's disinformation campaign in two thousand sixteen using facebook or president trump spreading misinformation on facebook around the two thousand twenty election. And then of course facebook's role in the january six riot at the capital and. I wonder if it's right to see vaccine misinformation as of a piece with those previous episodes or if based on the fact that facebook has changed since two thousand sixteen and is being more proactive. And all the ways you just described that it's possible that history makes facebook an easy target for the white house when it comes to vaccines in a way. That may not be quite fair. I mean this is absolutely part of a pattern that existed at facebook for years. But what's different here. Michael is that kobe nineteen and efforts to end the pandemic through these vaccines have been a absolute priority. Not just for the government but also from within facebook mark zuckerberg has says this is absolutely one of his top priorities and they have stricter rules on kobe. Misinformation than any other pieces of content and the stakes are so high when we've seen facebook struggle with misinformation related to election interference. False news around politics. It's been upsetting for users. It's been frustrating. It's certainly caught the attention of washington lawmakers at our who are very angry at facebook.

"When people say washington they usually think politics paperwork power lunches but you have an experienced. Dc dc is the capital of these united states and proud of it the city with more museums per square mile than any place in the country. They're the place where important decisions are made like which michelin starred restaurant to try. I and where to go out next but this city is no postcard. Dc is the capital of food art music and more you know. Washington now experienced d. c. visit washington dot. Org the plan your trip today if you find yourself bewildered by this moment where they're so much reason for despair and so much recent hope all at the same time. Say i hear you. I'm ezra klein from new york times opinion host of the show and for me the best way to beat back. The wilder feeling is to talk it out with the people who have ideas and frameworks for making sense of it from a days at the washington. Post to my times editor and chief at box and now as an opinion columnist at the new york times. I've tried to ask the questions that matter to the people at the heart of those matters like how do we address climate change. The political system fails to act has the logic of markets infiltrated too many aspects of our laws. What do psychedelics teach us about consciousness. And what a sifi understand about our president that we miss this is the ezra show and there's going to be plenty to talk about. You can find new episodes every tuesday and friday wherever you get your podcasts. So you talk us through facebook's arguments and the evidence behind them that it has done a lot to counter vaccine misinformation. What have they done well. What facebook is really focused. On is what i describe as offense. They have done a lot to promote authentic information and to try to get people to go out and get vaccinated for example. I'm looking right now. My facebook app. And i see the kobe. Nineteen information center. It tells me looking for kobe. Nineteen vaccine information. Find answers to common questions. So i gotta qna. It also tells me. Go to this place in my neighborhood the my vicinity where i can find vaccines available. This information appears like a pop up box. So it's right there when you open your app in the website. And that's a kind of proactive offensive. Measure that they're doing so. This is facebook literally taking people by the hand and showing them how to get a vaccine which they would argue is the most powerful way to counter bad information even on facebook. That raises doubts about the maxine. Exactly they're saying we are actually taking the extra measures to try to help with this pandemic. But i would also note that this is so core to facebook's philosophy on content in speech which is that good information can drown out bad information. And that's the strategy they're taking here Another thing they do is they put labels related to the vaccine that gives people a little bit more information promoting the vaccine. So if you put in your status update. I just got the vaccine. My arm is sore automatically. The company's machine learning will see that language that you've mentioned the vaccine and they'll attach the label to that particular status update and that label will read something like kobe. Nineteen vaccines go through many tests for safety and effectiveness before they're approved see the world health organization and get vaccine information. Oh interesting so basically. Facebook is spotting what might be interpreted as skepticism or critique of the vaccine and it's producing a message that would encourage somebody to take the vaccine by saying. Hey this has been tested. this is safe. That's right and they go a step further and other cases in that they say they've taken down straight out misinformation. They say that they've taken down eighteen million pieces of content that promote false conspiracy theories and news related to the vaccine and covered nineteen. That sounds like a lot to have taken down. Eighteen million but relative to the viewership of misinformation is that actually meaningful. This is really key. Michael we don't know what the whole pool of misinformation is. We don't know what that denominator is. Eighteen million take downs of. How many and that's actually one of the things that's really frustrating. The white house right now. They want to know what that denominator is. They wanna know. How big is the reservoir of misinformation on facebook related to the vaccine right so that they can measure what it means when facebook says we've taken down eighteen million out of how many and further how many people have viewed that content. How many people have liked it. How many people have shared it. That's really key to understanding. Engagement and reach is a fair to say cecillia that facebook has taken down some of the individual posts of the disinformation dozen but still let them continue opposed. Is that how this works. That's absolutely right. They've taken down not only post but they've taken down some pages and some groups associated with the disinformation dozen but those individuals are able to run other groups other pages and their accounts. Remain active So this would seem to be facebook acknowledging in a way that there is a problem right. I mean if they're taking down eighteen million individual posts that would seem to be a form of conceding that vaccine misinformation is very present on the bus for. They are absolutely aware that this is a huge problem. They're really struggling however with how they can actually police misinformation and to also protect different. Point of views at the heart of this is something that facebook struggled with for years which is what kind of speech they will allow on the platform. And what kind of speech could potentially be so harmful that it should be taken down right and they have to negotiate that every time they look at a post that skeptical the vaccine absolutely and there's a lot of gray area there's sometimes satire there's sometimes just commentary and conservative figures in washington lawmakers as well as media figures really are watching this very closely and they're criticizing facebook for being too strict on their takedown policies. They say that people should have be able to express different points of views as related to the vaccine. There are many republicans who are not vaccinated right now and there are many media figures on tv who say that. These companies should not be in the business of censorship So in facebook's telling there is a problem of vaccine information on the platform but they have taken concrete steps to remove a lot of it and to try to drown it out or overshadow it with good information and accurate information that leads facebook users to go back sonate it yes and facebook points to its own data showing that less and less people on the platform our vaccine hesitant and they are taking credit for that because of these efforts but the white house is still frustrated because they say that even though they're taking these proactive offensive measures. The white house is still frustrated. They're not taking down enough misinformation and that the public is still seeing way too much misinformation about the vaccine right. The white house is frustrated that on any given day you might see the juxtaposition on facebook of a covert toolbox. Saying here's where to get your vaccine and then a few months later you might scroll down to a post on facebook full of misinformation or even lies about that very vaccine. That's right michael. It's almost like facebook is rowing upstream with all of these offensive efforts but they're also creating this surge of the down.

"He said that were the threats. Often come from what we eat. Drink and smoke. Today we live in a world where misinformation poses an imminent and insidious threat to our nation's health. We must confront misinformation as nation. Every one of us has the power and the responsibility to make a difference in this fight. Lives are depending on it. So he's saying that online misinformation about the cova nineteen vaccine is literally a public health crisis. He is for the first time saying that speech and comments that are made on the internet have hopped over into real life and of caused real world harm. Thanks so much for your time. And i'll turn it to jen. And then bright after the surgeon. General jen psaki. The white house press secretary doubles down on his message. They're also proposed changes that we have made to social media platforms including facebook and she really homes it on facebook. facebook has been a leading cause of this misinformation. facebook should provide publicly and transparently data on the reach of covert nineteen Co vaccine misinformation. Not just and she said that the reach the company owes it to the public to be transparent about how much misinformation is on the site. How it's spreading and how much it's being engaged with your second That we have recommended a proposed that they create a robust enforcement strategy that bridges. There she pointed to the fact that the white house has had to repeatedly flag misinformation around the corona virus vaccines to facebook and at the company takes too long to respond to this misinformation that spreading so rapidly finally li Have proposed they promote quality information sources in their feet algorithm facebook. She really also focused by gold on the algorithms that allow the company to spread misinformation so rapidly compared to any other media platforms case on that certainly an area that would have an impact so these are fishing as a public call for facebook to do. Better thanks. Everyone thinks everyone. And then the next day president biden just before he got on marine one to camp. David was asked by reporter. Covert this information about what his message to social media companies would be like facebook and the president said they're killing people have is among unvaccinated. Not it was really a stunning statement. And the first time that i have heard the public has heard such a direct line that the administration was trying between these social media platforms and their problems and their challenges when it comes to solving the pandemic right is used to be saying this overall very highly coordinated effort by the white house seems to be saying that companies like facebook in a sense have blood on their hands when it comes to americans being unwilling to take the covert nineteen maxine because of the misinformation that they host it was an extraordinary statement and facebook immediately pushed back in the blog. Post facebook slammed the administration's position. It's perhaps not surprising that facebook is not happy about having that message come out of the white house and they said no. We're absolutely not killing people. And that's unfair. They said in fact we've tried to use our platform to help save lives. We put a ton of effort into putting out authentic incorrect information about corona virus. Vaccines and you the by administration. Facebook was saying are scapegoating us because it looks like you're not gonna meet your vaccine goals and that's not our fault at facebook so stop finger pointing and that's true right. The administration has missed vaccination targets. That's right the administration wanted tickets. Seventy percent of all adults vaccinate.

You'll see this voicemail high lt. My name is lauren. And i'm just really curious about how the president and first lady make requests for meals and fact and groceries and logistics of how all of that works 'cause obviously he's probably not the wouldn't ordering or picking up any of that stuff himself. Well there's actually someone in charge of that and the person who i interviewed named bill. Hamilton was there for decades. he's retired. He's one of the longest serving people to work in the white house and he was the one that was in charge of getting the food for the family. You would go to a supermarket and he wouldn't tell me which one in an unmarked secret service. Dan low so he's going to get bananas he just puts it in a car like anybody else. You never know in washington if you're If you're gonna be grocery shopping with the person bringing food back for the the president and his family. You might have squeezed mellon to test it. That later ended up on the president's plate. Exactly exactly true. It's kinda crazy. It's the seems like kind of a dream that you could have You know you you have this someone going to shop for you. Make this food for you. and then is it all just free if you live in house no and that is a real myth the family. When they're eating alone they have to pay for their own food or when they have guests over like when the kids have friends over they pay for everything and they see that bill President kennedy was like obsessed with the the milk bill for some reason. Jackie with tell the c. Fester were not nearly as rich as you might think you know. Of course they were. Yeah rosalyn carter would ask for leftovers because it's it can be really expensive. So who makes the menu. Then who's deciding what the first family eats while the chef. She's the one who's planning out these meals. It's currently christina. She has been there since two thousand five. She's the first woman. And the first person of asian descent to have this job and then it's the social secretary telling the first lady you know. Here's the menu. Unusually on sunday nights that they get the menu for the rest of the week And they approve it or not And they like things you know. Some first ladies and presidents are really into healthy eating like the clintons hired a chef that was using like very fresh ingredients and then this chef was then fired by george w bush because he wanted peanut butter and honey sandwiches so it just depends on the on the person it's interesting you have these people who you know. They work under george w bush and then obama and then trump. So they have these bosses. I guess who have these totally different. Political philosophies approaches to what america should be and they're able to survive those changes but when it comes to like what somebody likes for a snack. That's what could get you fired. That's true and that's what keeps them up at night is that they work at the pleasure of the president and they can be fired on like a complete women and people have been you know I mean there are some stories that i love that. Aren't that surprising nancy. Reagan getting so angry. That some of her limos you know porcelain eggs were broken and she would screaming about it at the head housekeeper and it was such a big deal that they started to photographs every room so that when they would do a deep clean of the rooms they would be able to point to where everything was so that if anything was at a place they could defend it. Hi i'm digging into a pint of ben and jerry's ice cream right now and it got me thinking about the white house and the number of times that i have a food craving and it's seven eight nine o'clock at night and i don't follow through on that food crazy because of the inconvenience of having to drive to town but then i realized if you lived in the white house can they just get anything whenever they want it so they do have a kitchen upstairs on the second floor if they wanna make something or if they have a craving they can call downstairs to the chef and get whatever they want or. If it's three in the morning they can go and like get a cookie from the kitchen kind of thing and each family has their different you know cravings like hillary clinton loves. This chocolate mocha cake and when she was having a really bad day she would call the pastry chef and ask for the chocolate mocha cake. When when hillary clinton wanted the chocolate mocha cake was everybody's like she asked the cake. Stay out of Yeah they knew. It was a hard day for her when she was asking for that cake. What happens what does everybody do when the president and the first lady are having a fight oh they get out of there.

"Will this. friday next. Time is matching. sit in the back. i felt. that's the world terrifying mentally. I know but i just wanted to say that. I think i think i sort of disagree with into but because i think i think beastie crisis we have to grasp about. It's not a. It's a matter of personal. I called your willpower. I think it is this kind of structural problem. And i think this report sounds great. I mean it's very very it was very jamesy in. It's like Sort of big ideas. You always get overexcited. By these things. I love the ideas of robots and fields picking weeds and completely behind that individual guitar. And i think this is probably the only way to fix the problem. I think we'd be amazed at the effect of their structural. Changes can have. I also think the sort of interesting stuff reading around at the fact that Childhood obesity although it stable thus stability is because increasing in poor children. Bit reducing enrich. Children means that. Evidently we have this evidence. That are the beastie crisis is something is not that inevitable progress through people doing things to reduce it and maybe it'll just take this with big government dimension to fix it is it is crazy is one is the majority of adults and overweight. And sort of three. And tanner obese or something has to these just absolutely you. This is just like unprecedented in human history. And i think the scale of these plans is completely know completely kind of commensurate to problem and it seems india if the government is having a lot of contortions as to where you know it's logical position lies in The nelson he coming libertarian again. Georgia georgia saying he will carefully consider the conclusions and respond with the white paper within six months. Which doesn't feel like they're grasping at too tightly. Generic was very much playing it down this morning Times ready to kathy before your coach policies. Like that and you know you go back to the old libertarian. Leaving people to do what they want. But then also having an argument about face masks and the government was has been telling us about exact house live our lives right down so when we can leave the house and is an isn't a necessary journey and all that sort of thing so this has been willing in the name of public health to take quite an interventionist approach but doesn't seem to want to do on this. Well no because you can see how wildly unpopular these proposals would be very such as society sections of society that always get the net. It reminds me of people giant. Teddy's people snaring a poor families with giant and actually the reason they've got telling because the giant entertainment so you can argue that the reason people go to the chippy and bhai comes of dying booklets fear. Fizzy drinks and give children. chocolate bars. is that because there isn't anything else very nice going on in our lives so it's really hard and this is the people particularly in. The news are new new converts to to boris johnson. It's a very kind of delicate thing. It's all very well to say the middle class way. Everybody should need brown rice and me so and organic eggs but and also of course the question of concrete essence which i think really a really really important to come into it and the idea that anything to do with cookery domestic science feeding yourself is kind of a city side subjects and you know on friday. We make scones and take them home and people need to be children. Need to be taught properly how to how to be able to feed themselves. It's a it's a really kind of basic basic thing. And i think the the shunting they do exist again crescents in schools since about two thousand fourteen but the sun to the something to the side of them for at least one generation was disaster because people literally feed themselves met todd. They've been working. They got home. they want something to eat. That's going to be instantly. Satisfying provide finlander immediately for the craving. And so they ruppees but you can't entirely blame them and you entirely penalized them. You need to be a bit clever about it. But generally i think the recommendations are great but then i would say out because i'm not the people i've just described and i think there's also an interesting point is being made on thompson breakfast. Morning is on the one hand. They want the tax base. The idea is you want the companies to formulate the food that they make all they have to pay the tax and then he's hypothecation the tax would go to support and all that sort of thing but there's a companies we formulate. You don't get any money so there's not totally because what we're seeing with lot. Fizzy drinks is when they brought in the georgia in the sugar tax. Fizzy lots of them did just take the sugar out of their drinks about. I'm boo people. Said it said it entices anyway. Let's not get bogged down in that. Because the last time. I mentioned something somebody sent us. Twix is i only treat myself in half on on a friday jibes lot you but not in the i want to talk about the call you today about how you think. The binds the ties that bind breaking down. Yes i yeah. I do This i guess is another sort of thing. Another problem that i think is the people people talk a lot about loneliness epidemic. And i guess like the epidemic. I think is something. We tend to think of a sort of a personal individual problem but is actually sort of structural problem in society and the basic with my column was that did you ever loading. This epidemic makes us think this sort of thing passing through society but actually i think these amazing statistics about leninists. That were reported last week. But hang on what i think. The number of young people say they have either one of your close friends has tripled in the last decade trust in strangest declining trust and families declining these things. Aren't this sort of isolated phenomenon. That's just seventy arrived. I think quite deeply rooted in the way society's structured in history of society. So just i mean one of the things. I meant in the column which i think is a crucial part of the loneliness. Epidemic is how mobile the population of Of our country and most western countries we take it for granted that will move around for jobs. we'll move.

"The White House was the White House if you could infiltrate the white house's CIA did through our country you can then start running CIA operations in anybody catches you can always say Hey it was a C. there was a the president said I could do it it it's okay if the president says you can do it in national security you can do it even though it's otherwise against the law the people of often misinterpreted what Richard Nixon said one time they scoffed at it when Richard Nixon said if the president does it it's not illegal that is true in matters of national security that's what the FISA court is all about national security when Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves what he was doing was otherwise illegal because it violated the Fifth Amendment he was getting rid of people's property ID slaves it's a terrible thing to say the the courts the courts in those days the great Scott decision so when Lincoln came into office he said I don't have power to free the slaves it has to be passed by Congress and we have to give just compensation this label now what happened to the south wages civil war and the Lincoln says aha I have my excuse Iowa national security excuse now I can create this one so he freed the slaves but for the for slave states that were not part of the confederacy and we're not belligerent he could not free the slaves in those four states so the Emancipation Proclamation only applied to those as to which we had a national security reasons to do it George Washington put down the whiskey rebellion when the ink was barely dry on the bill of rights and he went up and he you know open up a can of whoop **** on the whiskey rebels didn't worry about warrants didn't worry about anything like that brought him back to be tried but didn't follow constitutional procedures here but this was national security so anytime you're dealing with that in the Vietnam War was never a declared war it was a national security anchors so the president has very broad powers under our constitutional structure you too ordered national security searches and seizures and so the white so to see I was trying to gain cover by infiltrating the White House they also infiltrated the committee to reelect the president through James McCord and then they could say if caught it was a CIA operation approved by the president national security and that was the whole reason for them doing what they did now the post new this it would have been a very much of an interesting civics lesson for the country and we would have gotten all the evidence and said you know to certain extent Richard Nixon was in this White House is victimized by this because it was not only Howard hunt that yeah it infiltrated the prop White House probably couple other people and I think this Alexander Butterfield was the defense intelligence guy thanks to the router it was a spy ring going on hello one of the fellows from the navy was reading the fern back papers in the burn back of Henry Kissinger and pass them on to the navy it was very much an institutional clash in those days for your listeners in those days they were very important national security operations going on you have the Vietnam War but China and Russia and and Nixon and Kissinger where we're nothing if not clever in how to play everybody off against one another however they did not allow the defense department into their schemes they didn't allow the C. I. A. N. and the state department yeah Nixon was cutting out the state department later on Henry Kissinger and secretary of state the time is just national security adviser so there are not a lot of people who wanted to spy on the White House the CIA wanted to spy but it also wanted to use the picture or the patina of presidential authority so that they could go to operations in the United States and then later on if they were caught ten years later they could tell Congress well we we we have authorization so that's what this is about I'm not making it up because Howard hunter was planning on defending himself at trial using a CIA defense I talk about it in my book in one of his witnesses was going to be his wife one of the reasons he wanted to use a CIA defensive trial was because he could not stand the interruption of his domestic life which is very good at four lovely children a wife who was in the C. I. A. Dorothy hunt and he's very much in love with her he couldn't bear to take one for the team the C. I would've just assumed Howard with prison for a couple years kept his mouth shut and not said anything about this being a CIA deal that's what James McCord yet that Howard hunter wanted to stay with his family well he was planning this defense record send up of nineteen seventy two the the arrest happened in June a set of seventy two he was ready to go to trial in December seventy two planning CIA defense the trial was to start January of seventy three well worth the hulk got on an airplane to go to Chicago and that plane crashed and died insight into caring a fair amount of cash with their and about a week after that crash happened Alexander Butterfield who I think was a defense intelligence plant resigned his White House duties and became head of the FAA which investigated the crash now I'm not saying that the CIA because this there's been people speculating since nineteen seventy two as to whether the CIA because if they did not post it crashed they were preternaturally lucky let's put it that way because soon as that happened Howard hunt lost a key witness his wife who could talk about this because CIA operation a number in the in the various protocols the CIA uses false we prepare people and then insert them under cover places that's number one and number two it also removed from him the motive to stay out of jail isn't she died he he he he made one last cry to get James McCourt to go along with the defense the court wouldn't do it hunt said that's it I'm I'm just going to plead guilty and forget it at least be nice yeah I'll be nice to be able to get my pension I'll go to jail so I go through this in my book in estimating tale but it's one that the public was deprived of the potion knew that explaining the CIA defense they do a lot of this but they didn't publish it would you like to note that were reading the post time what do you want to know that the supervisor of the burglary team was planning to say I did this because it was the C.

"A bank. What did that trust fund do it turned around and gave the money to the government when they bought Treasury denominated notes and the government spent it? There's nothing there. It's a bunch of fake. I owe us. You don't believe me. Look at the screen cap from the market. Watch piece. Do you think I'm making this up here? Social Security Trustees and other people out there who looked at the numbers warning everyone. The gap between what social security takes in and what it pays out which again was growing to begin with. Is going to widen further? The Trust Fund has been filling that gap but as the gap gets bigger. The Trust Fund will be used up faster. That's how males estimated twenty thirty three depletion estimates come in two years faster than what social security trust these estimated just last year. Let me decipher that for you. In thirteen years there will be no trust fund left the trust fund doesn't exist now it exists in theory on paper. But it's not real. You gave money to a trust fund which they lent the money to the same government that took it from you. That then spent it. There's no money in there. It's a bunch of worthless. I use the simplest analogy in the world. It's like you taking cash spending it and writing on a note. I owe myself twenty dollars and saying no no I have this paper. I myself twenty. It's not worth anything in order to pay yourself back. You have to go get another twenty dollars. That's what they did in this piece. They're suggesting even the fake trust fund which is just going to be sourced from general revenues. Even that's going to be wiped out thirteen years again to people fifty-five and other promises were made you fought for us. You lived in a much harder time than we do. There were no flat. Screens lived through the Great Depression. You deserve that. It was your money and we need to take care of those folks but for people fifty five and younger. It's over there are no money there and you thinking there's money is simply foolish. You can send me all your actuarial spreadsheets in the world you want. You will not defeat the simple purpose that the IOU with simply deposited back into the General Fund do Treasury denominated notes. That was spent. There is no money there. You can never change that argument. You know it it's also behind the fictitious Clinton surplus narrowed remember. Bill Clinton had a surplus. No he didn't they ran social security surplus which they did what spent that's why the national debt went up every single year. Bill Clinton's presidency. How'd that happen? We had a surplus we. Didn't they spent it? It was a social security surplus payroll tax. They spent that too. That's why the national debt went up every year because the government has to pay us back to themselves. We can fix it but we need massive reform right now okay I want to leave you with a good note for the weekend. This is We can fix it. I really I mean that. Just just have to accept that premise and then going forward everybody. Democrats included once. We accept that premise. The math will work out in the end once. Because that's our biggest line item in the budget social security by far and there's just no money for people fifty five and younger. This is one of the best clips. I've seen in a long time. I don't know how this hasn't gone more viral. I'm trying my best tomato viral. It's the Great Kellyanne Conway who very few people can just completely dismantle hacked left wing media narratives like. She can as Paul early morning. She's absolutely correct. Kelly has got gift Joe. Because you've seen he's laughing because he always gets to cheat and it's I almost wish I could hide it from Josie genuineness but I can't. He is the producer. She has a way of doing it with a smile that I just don't possess. She's like razor-sharp. I'm more like a baseball bat. A blunt instrument. And I get that. It's not for everyone and that's Ok but that's me I'm forty five and I just not changing. I'm sorry Kellyanne does not have that. She's a razor blade glide across your face shaving off that stumble and you're like Gosh if so clean. She's just so good. This is the dreadful Paula Reid from. Cbs remember the One Paula. Reid she was the blonde lady at the press conference today. Who was going after active. Ouchi suggesting that he was pushed into making an involuntary statement out she just crusher and then Donald Trump had it out with their afterwards. Better stupid question so Paula Reid. It's quiet Joe. Tried to fix. But this is outside the White House grounds she gets Kellyanne Conway in this little question and answer thing and she asks Kellyanne why President. Trump's business council has so many. It's not a joke. You can why it has so many white men on it. As if president trump picks the CEOS of companies that are. This is a real question.

"Shannon petty pieces of senior White House this reporter for NBC News Shannon. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me so we have been talking for weeks now really months now about the impeachment of Donald Trump. Let's look closer at trump trump himself. His White House how he is handling all of this. He was in Hershey Pennsylvania last night chocolate capital of the world but I think when it comes to politics obviously Pennsylvania critical state in two thousand twenty one. That trump narrowly won in two thousand. Sixteen it's one. He's going to need to win again if he's GonNa get re-elected so on the same day that Democrats credits are formalizing these articles of impeachment against him trump is talking to a rally in Pennsylvania. What's he saying to them? He gave a pretty full throated. Defense of himself ALF. As well as ripping everyone involved in this process he at these rallies kind of goes through an area stark enemies list from Adam shifts like like shifty shifty. Here's a corrupt politician to Nancy. Pelosi is totally lost control to the whistle blower the whistle so blower defrauded our country because he throws one enemy after another at the audience and it is a bit of red the meat to the base but of course it's also a way for him to sort of get some things off his chest and you went on for about five minutes at this rally last night and I think that's maybe a little bit more. Then we get from him focused on peach men and it was really the only time we heard from the president yesterday and so he certainly did take that moment to give his full throated rebuttal rebuttal to what the Democrats had laid out you know. I wonder if there's a strategy behind holding a rally like this on a night like last night. Is there a strategic. TJ element here where trump in the White House WanNa put him in an arena of ten thousand members of the Republican base. Who are just cheering along shouting along? Long enjoying everything he saying about this sort of delivering a message to Republican elected officials. Have Hey remember the base is behind me. You don't WanNa Cross them exactly well in the early days of this impeachment inquiry when I talked to his advisers. What are you thinking? Are you nervous. Could this be end. They said well watch what happens to Republican Republican support. Even as numbers came out showing about half of Americans were supportive of this impeachment inquiry once they saw that Republicans support holding up. They said Ed does okay. I think we're GONNA be all right. There's not going to be a mutiny in Congress in the Senate because those Republicans will see if they want to avoid a primary. They're going to have to stick sick behind this president and I think he's continuing to do that in these rallies like you said are great example to reaffirm that he can fill a twenty thousand person stadiums in major cities including major democratic cities like Minneapolis for example where he was about a month or two ago. So that's definitely a side benefit of these things. It's interesting resting to to watch trump right now handling all of this because we have a president who was in his shoes in the same shoes basically at this exact time twenty one years ago. It was this same week. In December nineteen ninety eight at the House of Representatives was poised to impeach. Bill Clinton Clinton had a different way of handling it in public talk a little bit about comparisons between what Clinton was doing and and what effect it was having versus what trump's doing now get. It was a completely different way. I've talked to a number of people who are involved in that period with Clinton and who came up behind that strategy and they said really key to it was keeping Clinton out of impeachment Peach Mint as much as it might have bothered him personally. Behind the scenes in public he appeared to be president who was working hard on behalf of the the American people that was the image that they tried really hard to put in front that he couldn't be distracted by impeachment. He had real things to deal with. He had the economy and jobs and all the other foreign policy issues that come with being president and impeachment was just a a silly little thing that was being done by the Republicans now of course he did address his accusations and his impeachment at very key specific moments but on a daily basis he sought to stay out of the the fray and look presidential and Republicans and Democrats credit that strategy with helping Clinton get through the process where his approval approval rating went up to sixty percent seventy percent at one point. He left office as one of the most popular presidents they give that credit to the strategy. Strategy and Lindsey Graham was even one of those to give credit to this I think one of the reasons that he survived is that the public may not have liked what the president had done but believed that he was still able to do his job and as he governed during impeachment. I think that was probably the single best thing. He did. Quite frankly to to avoid and it also helps it backfire on the publicans because it made it look like the Republicans. Were not focused on the issues. That matter to people and were carrying on with you know what they tried to portray as just silliness inside the beltway behavior. One of the other other contrast to between Clinton and trump is what was going on behind the scenes is Clinton had sort of for lack of a better term a war council around him and impeachment appeasement war-council trump is really the single soul shaper of strategy for this White House. Trump actually said to us I forget which reporters specifically typically asked but it was one of those days when he's heading off to the helicopter and someone asked him. Are you going to build a war room or are you know. Are you going to be adding staff to help with impeachment. And he said I the an the team that I don't have teams everyone's talking about I'm the team. I did nothing wrong. Of course that fits in with this bigger theme. We've seen of his presidency. Let's see where he is his own communication director. He is his own. You know chief of Staff is own. Political Adviser doesn't think he needs a big staff around him but yeah Clinton learn how to very formal war room. They had a lawyer inside the White House who was solely focused on and peach men who acted as the quarterback who reviewed you'd messaging and talking points that went out of the surrogates and the circuits Clinton had were very few. It was James Carville and Lanny Davis for the most part and those two were able to have a very coordinated sharp message backed up by the facts backed up by the lawyers but it was organized denies and strategize and focused. And we've seen something much different in the trump White House I've seen some reporting here potentially interesting common link between Clinton and trump and that is somebody that trump apparently met with a couple of weeks ago who was instrumental in advising Clinton in ninety eight ninety nine. who was that what can you? What can you tell us about that? Mark Penn former Clinton adviser came into the White House to talk about this strategy that Clinton used and the trump White House is well aware of what what Clinton did how their strategy played out. They have received this advice of keep focused on being presidential. Don't look like you're distracted and pulled down by impeachment impeachment but like so much of the advice. People have given trump throughout his presidency whether it's his national security advisers or his allies in Congress he just I has a way of doing it his way and making his own call at the end of the day about how he's going to do it and he seems to be carried through with that she in an Alaska to stay put for week. Second where we take this break back in just a minute. Hey It's Chris as you know. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day to day onslaught of news and take our broader broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week. My podcast why is this happening. Were exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think it is climate change to the twentieth century. What maternity was to the nineteenth century? It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging in deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics park getting more tribal..

"Don't forget that. At least one of these characters Kamala Harris is running for president the last thing she will ever do as part of that bid as seed to any Trump nominee for the supreme court. There's also a danger here that the White House is going to submit the nominees who aren't as qualified by the principles of the president has has stated the nominees that were non of these three nominees. We talked about we're vetted under the White House process in the last two years. They have strong pedigrees both in terms of legal experience and beliefs in the principles of original interpretation of the constitution. And it is true that in the past the White House, white houses have consulted, home state Democrats. If it's a Republican president or vice versa. If Democrats in the White House to say, all right? We're going to nominate this person. What do you think? And you know, you could see some kind of deference it's usually done at the district court level less at the appellate level because those nominations have become polarized ideologically as well. But these Democrats what have they done Kate? I guess would be my question to earn this kind of concessionary negotiation with President Trump. I mean, have they voted for any Trump nominee who who was at all controversial now nave done nothing to that. Goodwill. And like like, you said there's no guarantee air even probability that they show it at any later point. When it really matters.

"Yeah. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch Goshi actions begin post to government shutdown for a some kind of border security immigration deal that could could help prevent block another shutdown. We'll tell you about the early innings. They're welcome. I'm Paul zhigo. And I'm here with the Kim strassel and Kate batchelder Odell. So the we had a little scoop in the paper here on these negotiations that have been taking place behind the scenes in which the White House counsel's office is negotiating with of all people Kamala Harris, and especially Dianne Feinstein to California senators over a pellet nominees. Now, what triggered this is that when the White House submitted remember last year late last year Jeff flake, the Republican from Arizona than at the time. No. Senator objected to judicial nominees being voted on in the Senate because they had a narrow margin Republicans couldn't confirm any nominee. So the White House now has renominated fifty judicial nominees. I think that's the figure Kate isn't it fifty and if t one and and three names conspicuously missing these are three nominees from California. Ed been nominated last year for the night circuit court of appeals Patrick Bouma. Tei Dan Collins in Ken Lee, now two other nominees for the night, circuit were renominated one from Washington state one from Arizona, why the Californians not Ron renominated enquiring minds want to know. And it turns out that this is because the White House has been Goshi eight into try to come to some consensus with these. Democratic senators to try to get at least less opposition to this these nominees and the future by giving them a stake in who can be who the president will nominate up front Kate. And I have to say the strikes me as an awful idea. But please please expand. Well, Paul so Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris have been going back and forth with the White House counsels office on this issue for several months, including public letters asking that the White House counsel office would negotiate with them. And they're opening offer has basically been we will accept one person from your list, and then we want one person from our own list, and then some third candidate that everyone can agree upon. But there hasn't been much movement on this front, and it's easy to see why. And that's because Feinstein and Harris are unlikely to sign off on anybody on the White House list, the three nominees you mentioned are all well-qualified candidates that Harrison Feinstein have just a wholesale opposed. And they don't seem willing to accept any of those three as a part of an trade. Well, you know, my information is that. In fact, the White House is considering this pets baloney. The new White House council has been considering this with a goal of. Quake seriously. This isn't just some rumor or fly by night exercise. This is a serious consideration in the White House designed to to try to maybe kind of slow down. I mean, reduce the degree of opposition from democratic senators to Republican nominees, and in particular, if the White House gets a chance to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg later this year because of the justices health, and I'm not saying they will she's has given no intentions of wanting to step down. Although she she did have a very serious operation late last year. The the they're hoping that maybe this would get avoid kind of red cavenaugh meltdown. Kim my own view is good luck with that. Hope. I think Mr. zip baloney oughta be made to sit down and rewatch those Brad Kavanagh hearings. So that he can get a better sense of just how in the mood Democrats are to tolerate or accept any Trump nominee to the supreme court. This is wishful thinking, and it's very bad strategy because not only will it not aid them in that goal. But the president and the White House come across here looking very weak. They look almost as if they are rewarding the behavior of MS Harris, miss Feinstein, who were among the top people who did the drive-by mugging of Brett Cavanaugh and subjected him to such a horrible process and the idea that they come out of that. And then are rewarded and as by giving a veto over the president's ninth, circuit nominees is just mind boggling in a certain way. Well, not in a certain way, and every way so. It's it's a stonning and look to remember since we're talking about future supreme court nominees and people's motivations..
