The FBI Search Warrant Will Prove This Is a Political Witch Hunt

"And they've asked the judge to keep the warrant private. I think the reason why is because they know this is a political witch hunt. And whatever's on that document will prove it's a political witch hunt. That the raid had nothing to do with the national archives, got nothing to do with J 6. This has everything to do because we know, by the way, from Benny Thompson, the chair of the J 6 committee that there are no criminal charges coming out of that against president Trump. There are none. So I believe that something else is going on here. And that something else is looking for something to indict this president because if they can indict this president, he will not be able to run for The White House again. And these people are terrified. They're terrified of Donald Trump. You know why they're terrified of Donald Trump? Because he delivered on his campaign promises. He made promises to weed the people he made promises to the maga world he made promises to the America first community and he delivered all those promises. He also stood up to the military industrial complex of this nation, the one that's continuing to send young men and young women into battle, where we don't need to be in battle. He also stood up to the mainstream media and he showed the Republicans how to fight back against these little morons like little Jimmy Acosta over at CNN. The most profane name in news. Crying Negro network, judge Joe Brown, thank you, sir. We always appreciate your kind words and your opinion. That's what I think is going on here.

Donald Trump Jr.: The FBI Showed up With the Hostage Rescue Team

"It's beyond inconceivable. You know, if you were a Hollywood script writer and you pitched a plot for a movie that said that the lawyer who represented Jeffrey Epstein's team and people who worked for Jeffrey Epstein became a federal judge and then of all the thousands of judge judges in the country, he's the one who signed off on this Mar-a-Lago search warrant, which evidently allowed them to seize every single document generated during the four years of the Trump administration, which should have been the biggest red flag imaginable, but honest to goodness done, you wouldn't, that wouldn't pass muster. They'd laughed that writer out of the pitch room. That screenwriter would have been thrown out of Hollywood for publishing something unrealistic, and yet it's there. It's happening on a daily basis. We're seeing it before our very eyes. And it's just, you know, it's clearly a political vendetta. They have weaponized the FBI. I've been thinking about this but it wasn't like a couple of bureaucrat agents showed up to Mar-a-Lago to exercise this war. We heard about how desperate it was. And yet, you know, the Merrick Garland was weighing on it for weeks and months. Like I thought, you know, he had to nuclear codes. Remember that one last time? He still had him. It's incredible. He must have taken the nuclear football from The White House. They showed up with the FBI's hostage rescue team for your listeners who don't know what that is. That's like the field teams of the FBI. Right. You know, now I understand that like three weeks ago, there was a narrative that took about two seconds to disprove, although the January 6th inquisition committee didn't want to hear from the actual Secret Service, but there was the narrative that Donald Trump had choked out two young, heavily armed, very fit secret agents at the age of 75. During the January 6th to go be with his supporters, that took about two seconds to disprove, but they still ran with it for, you know, days and probably weeks.

Is This the Beginning of the End for the Left? McCullough Explains

"What do you think, I mean, what happened with Mar-a-Lago recently, it shows to me a level of desperation on the left. In other words, they can not abide the concept, the possibility of Trump getting back into The White House. I believe that that will happen. He will get back in. But they will do anything, including, I think, if they were able to put a bullet in his head. And others, I don't think that they care about anything about the appearance of evil. I don't think they care. And others, I think the level of desperation has ratcheted up so dramatically that they know not what they do. They're not even being wise in prosecuting the evil plans that they have. They have simply gone all out. And I think when you do that, it backfires. I think that what happened in Mar-a-Lago is in some ways the beginning of the end for them. Several thoughts on that. And I would say yes to everything that you said. But it didn't obviously didn't start with Mar-a-Lago. I think the whole contrived prime time appearance of the January 6th select committee and all the rest of this garbage that has been going on has been strategically calculated to try to just Nick him and cut him to death and just a thousand nicks. They think they're going to get him to bleed out. The problem is he's got really tough skin. And the other problem is that the American people are way more tuned in than they've been in a long, long time. So tomorrow, Tuesday of this week is the primary in Wyoming. And I fully expect Liz Cheney to lose by more than 15 to 20 points in her primary. She's done everything she could to say, come vote for me if you're a Democrat or an independent or whoever else, but it's not she has totally miscalculated where her own support in her own voters are at. And I think that that's kind of replicative of most of, well, not only all the red states, the known red states, but I think in the 7 states that you had the suspicious activity in.

We're in an Ideological War for All the Marbles

"In an ideological war for all the marbles? No, I couldn't agree with you more, Eric. And when you think about the difference with Donald Trump, putting China on notice, punishing them for intellectual theft property, getting into a trade war with them that we ended up winning and you figure out the difference between that and the guy that sits there now who has an office reserved for the big guy in a Beijing office tower somewhere because hunter has business connections there and all the things that are compromised by. It really is a stark contrast. And look, you say it'll be too late in the next election. There are a lot of us that are looking at the actual X's and O's and wondering if it isn't too late already. I mean, the amount of damage that could still be done if people don't show up this November and stop the Congress in the Senate from being allies to the current White House resident. It would be devastating. If we gave this crew another two years of unchecked power, we would never recover from it. And so we've got to speak up nice and loud in about 80 days and send these people home.

Sebastian Reflects on the Presidential Clearance System

"Served in the Trump White House as deputy assistant to the president for strategy. As a result of that political commission, yes, that is what we were called politically commissioned officers of the president. I had to go undergo a background investigation. And acquire a top secret SCI, clearance. The clearance system in America, it's different in other countries. Has a very specific genesis and purpose. The intelligence communities, the 17 big agencies, there are many, many other small ones inside various departments and armed services, but the 17 American federal intelligence agencies serve one person in government. Their job is to provide intelligence, raw, or finished intelligence, to help the president of the United States make national security and foreign policy decisions. That is the only reason they exist. In fact, the whole classification system for documents for clearances exists for the president. It doesn't serve the chairman of the joint chiefs. It is not subordinate to the Speaker of the House or the vice president. It serves the president. That is why, for example, the president can give a clearance to anyone he wishes to, likewise he can strip only he can strip a clearance from anybody he wants to. If he wants to give his best buddy from high school a top secret SCI, code word, SAP program clearance, he can. He can just click his fingers and make it happen, because this system works for him. It is predicated, it exists to serve him in protecting America as the commander in chief. Likewise, should he wish to strip someone in federal government in the executive as the chief executive, he can strip them instantly. So the idea that a president or former president is a misusing classified information is impossible. He could wrap his fish in chips in classified information. If he wanted to, he could declassify in theory every single classified document or piece of information in U.S. government, who caused chaos, but he has the power to do so.

Jill Wine-Banks Explains What Goes Into Getting a Search Warrant

Jill Wine-Banks Explains What Goes Into Getting a Search Warrant

"Can you explain as a prosecutor? Jill, what a lot of people have said is do you know how much evidence there has to be for a judge to sign off on a search warrant for the home of a former president. We talked about this with Jeffrey Clark and John eastman that for a lawyer of a president, there's got to be a high bar. Can you explain what just happened yesterday? It's a high power for any American citizen. To be subjected to a search. And a judge will take even extra caution if it happens to be somebody who happens to be the former president of the United States. The bar is very high. It isn't the same as what it would take to convict at a trial, which is beyond a reasonable doubt. But probable cause means it's more probable than that. And remember, there is a judge who has already found that Don eastman and Donald Trump more probably than not, more likely than not, committed a crime. As far as the reporting here, we can, I would say, conclude that the reason for this search had to do with missing documents that were wrongfully taken from The White House and kept at Mar-a-Lago. Some of those are highly classified and pose a national security threat. We don't know if those are the ones that they were looking for. We don't even know for sure that it was documents that belong to the government and not to Donald Trump that they're looking for. But we do know whatever they were looking for if they find other things that are evidence of crime. They can take them if they're in plain sight. They have to be within the exact precincts of what the subpoena said. So if the subpoena says they can search a safe, they can search his office, they can search his bedroom. All of that is fine. That means they can't go into the lobby. It means they can't go into the bed, whatever room isn't named. But if they find something there, then in the places that are specified, it's fair game.

"This Is As Dangerous As Trump Gets" Says Glenn Kirschner

"It feels like accountability is trending stuff. You know, this is a big step on the road to justice. And it's shocking, even though we've known for a long time, Trump is a lifelong abject criminal. You know, the fact that he stole materials from The White House brought them down to Mar-a-Lago. They clawed back 15 boxes. I'm sure Trump and his people over and over again assured law enforcement authorities in the national archives. We gave you everything and then we learned that they were subpoenaing things and Trump and company were refusing to give them up. They subpoenaed surveillance tapes to see who might be accessing what we now suspect. Might be documents pertaining to nuclear weapons systems. And still, they couldn't get them back so they finally go in and execute a search warrant. We can talk about what goes into getting a federal search warrant. I've done it hundreds of times. It ain't easy in normal circumstances. And I'll tell you, Steph, the only thing that's left is indictments, criminal charges because, you know, this is as dangerous as Trump gets. I didn't think he could up the ante on the trees in front, but he just has.

Kash Patel Shares His Thoughts on the Mar-a-Lago Raid

"Talk about the raid of Mar-a-Lago. So I had a government clearance. I maintained it because of some work I do as a contractor outside of government, but we have this system in America where directors of agencies like the CIA, cabinet members and former presidents retain their clearances. They have legacy clearances. They don't have to re up them every 5 years. They don't have to have an excuse. So explain to me with what logic could you raid a president's home if he still has the highest clearances cash Patel? You can't with the logic of politics. The Department of Justice has become the department of politics. And so as this FBI, because nobody's rating Barack Obama's home, where he has 30 million pages of information, a lot of which is classified, he hasn't released one single page of it to the national archives. Here you have president Trump the most transparent president in modern American history, giving documents in the national archives declassifying them and telling him to get him out, but only to have the national archives, and I know this because I'm president Trump's representative to the national archives and have been fighting to get these documents out. They're not rating Obama's home. They're not reading bush's home. They're not reading Jimmy Carter's home. They're not reading Bill Clinton's home. And this is the hypocrisy and the two tier system of justice on full display. He wants the American people to see the documents that show the corruption and this is me just making a guess, but I think the documents that they seize that Mar-a-Lago show more government corruption by the FBI and DoJ. And if that's the case, it shows the politicization of our law enforcement, just like when I ran rush again. Remember, Devin and I only got 60% of the documents out. President Trump declassified the rest, but because of bureaucracy and The White House counsel, they were never released. All right,

Seb Talks to Kash Patel About the Purpose of Security Clearances

"I have so many things I want to dissect with you. Let's start by let's talk about clearances and classified information. Yeah. So I've still got my clearance. I gained a clear inside of clearance, a secret clearance in the British Army. I got a TSS CI in The White House when I came in and I think most people don't understand why the clearance system exists and why we have classified information and who the intelligence agencies of America work for. So would you as somebody who's worked in Congress convicted terrorists to the DoJ ran The Pentagon, why do we have intelligence services? And who are they writing their classified products for cash? Yeah, that's a great starting point. We'll get to their failures in the second, but classified information serves a purpose set. It's to protect American national security interests, which means you are protecting Americans. And sometimes the information is so sensitive, we don't want it out there in the public. IE. We don't want to tell Baghdadi that we're coming to get him because we put it out on Twitter. We don't want the facebooks of the world to know the positions of our hostages before we go and get them. Those are just obvious examples, but the better point is the intelligence collection doesn't always necessarily lead to an end state. It shapes policy at The White House and how we defend against Russia, China, and Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism and the like. So there is a need and a purpose for classified information. But the over classification of information has become a systemic problem and the failure of agencies to be able to share with each other is another problem that I tried to fix when I was deputy director of national intelligence.

"white house" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"Hey everyone, I'm David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Thursday, August 4th. This is probably bad for former president Trump. I mean, that might be an understatement, as the Department of Justice's latest subpoenas signal that investigators have reached inside Trump's inner circle. Obviously, the select committee on Capitol Hill investigating the events leading up to January 6th, the events of the day itself that insurrection that occurred at the capitol have been very public. It's been the very outward facing part of looking at what occurred at that historic moment and yet what we are learning now is there is as robust an operation that has been largely happening behind the scenes at DoJ that is now creaking into public view. So keep in mind everything that the committee on Capitol Hill has put forth in their public hearings has been obviously quite compelling, a timeline of what occurred, a lot and lots of testimony from Trump aides, not these are not political enemies of Donald Trump in any way, who are stringing together the narrative of what went on between election day and the 6th of January. But what we're seeing happening at a courthouse in Washington, D.C. we are seeing people coming into provide testimony in a Department of Justice, grand jury probe into these very same events, and obviously a criminal probe from the Department of Justice carries far more significant consequences than public congressional hearings, right? The role of Congress may be to make some recommendations or referrals. The role for the prosecutors at the Department of Justice is to bring criminal charges and get convictions. And the latest moves from DoJ could not be more threatening to Donald Trump. Former White House counsel pat cipollone and his former deputy council, Patrick philbin, have both been subpoenaed by the federal grand jury. That's according to sources familiar with the matter. Philbin did not immediately respond to requests for comment. A source familiar with the cipollone matter said that cipollone and his attorneys are now in discussions about an appearance before this federal grand jury, including how to deal with executive privilege issues. Now, both cipollone and philbin spoke to the House select committee and we know through their testimony that has been revealed publicly that they were present for some very chaotic moments in the aftermath of the 2020 election. Cipollone was a top voice among a chorus of Trump aides who testified up at the congressional committee, saying that Trump was repeatedly told that there was no evidence that the election was stolen. And yet, there was a real question in my mind and a real concern, particularly after the attorney general had reached the conclusion that there was a sufficient election fraud to change the outcome of the election. When other people kept suggesting that there was the answer is what is it? And at some point you have to put up or shut up. That was my view. You may recall there has been quite a bit of criticism of DoJ through much of this year when it comes to this matter, whether Democrats on the hill did not believe Merrick Garland was being aggressive enough or even some Republicans like kinzinger and Cheney who were on the January 6th committee who had concerns about the pace of any potential DoJ investigation into all of this. Well, now that we see that Trump's White House counsel and his deputy have been subpoenaed, this DoJ investigation has clearly reached not just inside the west wing. But basically to the door of the Oval Office. I mean, we're talking about very senior people around president Trump. Here's Republican Adam kinzinger, who serves on the January 6th committee with his take on what these developments mean. It shows that this is more than what did John eastman do attorney that basically came up with that crazy scheme to overturn the election. And it probably is a very deep interest in what the president did. We'll see where this goes, but there's no doubt that this investigation has developed further one than where we either knew it was or thought it was a few months ago. Now, attorney general Merrick Garland has repeatedly made clear. No person is above the law in this country. I can't say any more clearly than that. There is nothing in the principles of prosecution in any other factors which prevent us from investigating anyone. Anyone who is criminally responsible for an attempt to undo a democratic election. And that clearly includes former president Trump in the mind of the attorney general. And he's been clear that it is the law and nothing else that will guide his team of prosecutors and investigators through this process. He was pressed today at DoJ by a reporter if a window exists, a window of time to bring about any charges, given the political calendar this fall. This is something I can't comment about. I'm sorry. Now, all of this is happening, of course, as Donald Trump himself is weighing whether or not to announce a third bid for the presidency this fall and whether that should happen before the midterm elections or maybe after the midterm elections, though there's no indication from Garland or anyone else at DoJ that whether or not Donald Trump is a presidential candidate again is going to impact the department's decisions around any charges that may get brought from this grand jury process. And more and more information keeps coming out, whether through the January 6th committee through reporting through court filings, all while the DoJ criminal investigation is proceeding. The latest developments that we've learned about in recent days are dealing with the missing text messages from government phones during that period around the 6th of January of 2021. You may recall the Secret Service has been under heavy criticism after the Department of Homeland securities inspector general told Congress last month that the agency had a race text messages from the time period surrounding January 6th that had been requested by Congress. We're finding out today through an agency memo that DHS will immediately stop wiping mobile devices of high level officials and political appointees without backing them up and will launch a 30 day review of policies and practices for retaining text messages and other electronic messages.

And so it's a very interesting kind of way to be in the space. And it's actually kind of funny when people are like, I didn't know you were gay. And I'm like, how do you not know I'm gay? I've been out for a long time. They're like, wow. And so it's funny, but I am aware of it. I am conscious of it. I want to respect all of, like I said, all of the communities that I represent. And were you to bring it up every episode, I would say like, oh my God, she brings it up every day. It was like, what's wrong? What if you don't bring up ever once and even like she didn't even bring it up? Yeah, it's like, yeah, and it's a way I don't know how majority of people feel about it. But I want to lead with my experience and kind of my smarts, right? There's a reason I'm at this table and everything else just compliments me, you know? That's a great point. Yeah. You know, we've mentioned The White House couple of times. Can you just explain for everybody what your role was? Yeah, so that was one of the most amazing opportunities. I will never forget working in The White House for the first black president, you know? I miss those days. Yeah, you know, working in The White House, you felt the responsibility. You felt the weight of the country on your shoulders, the weight of the world. And you wanted to be good at your job and not screw it up because you knew at least for me, I knew that I was a everything that I was doing. I was representing president Barack Obama. If I went out and talked to people in different states or picked up the phone, I was representing Barack Obama. That experience was really wonderful. I worked in The White House office of political affairs. I was the northeast political director and basically what that meant is I managed a politics and about, I think, 11 to 12 states. In the northeast, I had to have my finger on the pulse of what was going on and what people were saying. How people were feeling about the presidency. And if he did specific political events, I have traveled with him and the vice president, sometimes the First Lady, and also any time we have to talk to a governor or a mayor or a political figure in the state, I was the one managing that relationship. And if he were to go into New York or Massachusetts or Pennsylvania, which was one of the states, I was in the room, I was with him. I was doing briefings, and I was briefing him, writing memos. It was just amazing job, amazing, amazing. I was there the first two years, which was I would argue the most hectic years, it was just an amazing experience. So similar to my question about talking about being gay on TV. How open or not were you working in The White House? Oh wow, I was pretty open by then, so we're talking about 2009. Yeah, I was pretty open. I was not. I was out. I even did, it gets better, but The White House gets better video. I was one of the people who produced it. And I was also told my story on tape on video..

"The baby formula in the U.S.. It's been this way for decades. We've had large manufacturers that have consistently commanded the market space and edged out the competition. Brian dietmeier at the national WIC association says when you only have a few companies that make something, this is one of the risks. You wind up with a situation where one plant closing for the matter of a few weeks has this ripple effect throughout the entire industry. And it's particularly dire with something like baby formula that's a necessity and that doesn't have substitutes. There are many infants that can only tolerate one or maybe two types of formula. Carrie Chan at Columbia business school says some parents can easily switch their babies to any brand of formula that's available, but some can't, they need specific kinds for health reasons. And so when there's a shortage in that area, there's not a possibility to just switch to an alternative. So far, U.S. companies have not been able to ramp up manufacturing quickly enough to meet the need. The formula supply chain is very similar to the supply chain of other products, all of valente at Forrester says there's also another barrier to getting more supply on shelves quickly. In the U.S., we have restrictions on the import of baby formula. The Biden administration says it's taking steps to make it easier to import baby formula from abroad. As one way to help increase supply in the short term. I'm Samantha fields for marketplace. All right, this is a tricky turn to make. Baby formula to cryptocurrencies, but there is a certain level of market dysfunction common to both. You've seen the headline surely. Hundreds of billions of dollars in losses across cryptocurrencies, the collapse of something called Terra USD that's an algorithmic stablecoin that is supposed to be stable, but clearly is not and then coinbase, one of the leading crypto exchanges, revealing an regulatory filing this week that if they go bankrupt, depositors could just lose all the crypto they've got in their coinbase accounts. As marketplace is literally jamali reports from here in Washington, the word people are starting to use more and more is regulation. When it comes to crypto, there is a distinct whiff of I told you so in certain circles, that disclosure by coinbase is only one reason. It struck me that they should have said it a long time ago because it's absolutely true. Timothy massed former head of the commodity futures trading commission says a lot of people learn the hard way this week that coinbase and so much else in crypto isn't regulated by the federal government. This shows how volatile this asset classes, there are essentially no fundamentals. But there is so much to potentially regulate Lee reiners is with duke law. And the question is, which agencies should be given authority? Massive old agency, the CFTC is one possibility, another is the Securities and Exchange Commission, where Hester purse is a commissioner. In an interview with marketplace, she said the SEC has a lot of authority, but hasn't used it to set what she calls rules of the road. At this stage, it would make a lot of sense to spend some of those regulatory resources on thinking about a reasonable framework for crypto. A reasonable framework, not a crackdown, even after this week. You can't just say when something bad happens, we're going to try to shut down the whole thing. Per says until now, her agency has been regulating by enforcing rules that don't exist. When they are made, she says both.

"Post military life and it's still important, the veteran community is still very important to be a part of to be plugged into. So you can actually get on the phone and I don't care if it's a 5 minute conversation or three minute conversation. Just to let people know that you're okay and not just, you know, under that cloud of depression and just trying to navigate it yourself. Get the help that's out there. There's so many resources that are out there and I was on events called this Saturday that's too industry and that organization is phenomenal. And they are people with resources that can just literally help us to get out of the house. There's the art therapy, the music therapy. There are so many different tools for events to utilize to support like a support system. Yeah, it's not true. And we, as veterans just have to get involved in the coin better network is free program that I'm doing. And so there are there's a bunch of free programs invest to industry is a great for transitioning veterans and just networking with veterans, I've done a few of their online events that they've done in the past year. It's just so great, all the stuff that they're doing and the way that they're connecting vets. We were going to talk a little bit about The White House. So I want to go back to your career and talk about your time at The White House 'cause you serve there under both president Bush and Obama right. So that was like an interesting experience because you got to experience two different leaders, two different parties in charge in The White House. So what was that experience like? I will say the experience for me working at White House transportation agency, which there are The White House military office that I'm not sure a lot of people are aware of. And these are nominated positions to serve whether it be White House communications aid, agency, White House transportation agency, the presidential airlift group, there is the also the one that does the food, presidential food services, and that's through the navy. There are plethora of organizations that support the movement and logistics and everything that goes into the behind the scenes, support for the president of the United States, wherever you see the president, there is a host of people supporting his logistical and operation the logistics, the operations, everything. And when I say that it could change your career trajectory, post military because you are in a posture where again nominated position, you're working around civilians, you're working around contractors and you're working around fellow service members to include the junior capital member of senior captain members. People that you see that are news correspondents and contributors that are on CNN and Fox and you are moving about in and around that element which, you know, we understood that we were statesmen and we were ambassadors, even as a service member. And so it's just very it was a rewarding position, educational. You continue to get your education while you're serving. You continue to prepare yourself for promotion, whether you're going to go back into a regular unit or not. But again, there's that opportunity to stay within some agency. Then there's that opportunity to go back to a regular unit, but you go back with a different perspective because now you've kind of seen what it was, not just working in a unit just this all service members, but now you've worked around some civilian system independent contractors. And so you get that diversity of thought that diversity of experience that collective intelligence. And you kind of see from a very high executive level, what goes some of the ends and outs that goes into some of the policy making that drives the decisions of some of the commanders, drive some decisions of whether we're going to go to war or not, with summit, we're going to some of the outcome of those summits as far as building up these different countries and our support to these third world nations. So you really get a global lens if you will on how our country supports these other countries and how important these partnerships are, and you're playing a significant role in supporting the president of the United States in his particular cabinet and people that are on staff there that some of them have been on staff in certain offices for years. And so it's just a really rewarding position to get to consider as a special duty assignment. Yeah, it sounds like such a cool experience. And I bet growing up, you probably did you even dream that one day you would be working in The White House. That's just so cool. That was never a dream Amanda and I laughed and smiled about it because people asked me that when I interviewed for jobs, you know, was like you go from working in this executive position, even serving in the capacity that we served and it's I mean, when you think about working in that particular tier, you know, supporting that particular government, which is the executive branch of the government, it really postures you differently with your self esteem, your confidence, you know, the value and work that you bring to another position afterwards, you're able to articulate who you are differently. So if postures you for, I mean, there are no limits. So it makes you really have a limitless viewpoint on not necessarily putting a cap on what you can achieve beyond that because that is like a premier position to have and to exit from and have on your resume. Yeah, it sounds really cool. I know that we only hit like a little tiny bit of your career, but I feel like we covered a lot of it thing else from your experience or any memory that you wanted to talk about. I think the biggest takeaway for me with the training, the physical, the physical fitness, I mean, the myriad of friends I have around the nation and U.S. territories that I can reach out to at any given time. I still am a champion and an advocate for military service in some capacity. One of the things I appreciated about being in sole career was the katusa soldiers, the Korean soldiers that worked on U.S. installations and those soldiers served in its most male service male service members, but on the Korean side, they served for average of two years. And I thought that I'm not advocating that there'd be a draft. I just knew that they had ascertained discipline, you know, a little bit of sense of direction with what they wanted to do with their life, whether they want to stay in the Korean army or whether they just wanted to do the two years in exit the Korean army. I just thought that was a unique setup of at least serving for those two years experienced it. And if you don't like it, you could transition. You know, and I still like when I'm sharing with my nieces and nephews, talk about the option of the army reserve, the Air National Guard, the air force reserve, you know, so there's different options out there. And I don't want people to pigeon to hold themselves or like into this just one aspect of what they could do with their career. It's like there are myriads of pathways, try the one, if it doesn't work, be willing to pivot.

"Facebook whistle blower francis. How against testimony this week. On capitol hill turned the lights on the social media platforms algorithm that by design. Amplifies dangerous disinformation and lures people to spend more and more time scrolling. The question now is what the biden administration will do about it. White house officials know that the momentum generated by halligan testimony will fade over time and the window of popular support for major structural changes to the technology landscape will close the white house like everyone else in washington recognizes that the tide is high and the time for action is now tim. Wu special assistant to the president for technology and competition policy said in a statement to time white house. Officials are distressed by how gan's revelations that social media companies products are targeting children who said and the era of let's just trust the platforms to solve it themselves needs to be over president. 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.

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.

"And add them to the list. It's very sad very sad moment to me a very sad moment and we will win this and we as far as i'm concerned we already have one. So i just wanna thank that now sets the stage and when we roll into the all all all of the greater authorities calling this election for for joe biden. It's it's a in his mind. Ace stolen election the thing that struck me well two things. Shut me when you get to the sitting down with trump about argo. One is a nightmare. It must have been transcribing that conversation because he's incomprehensible enlarged in terms of said whole sentences that make a lot of sets that was just dealing with that thing but you also talked to really press him on who has stolen the election. Moss is the organiz who is the mastermind lynch pin. The kingpin doesn't really have an answer to that. No well it was a funny thing. Because i knew and i basically had been told by the people around him. You know if you go in there and challenge him and say what do you mean. The election was stolen. It's clear that it wasn't stolen. The conversation was going to end quite abruptly. So i thought about this and i thought okay. I'll go i'll go with. Let's just try to follow this logic out. And i was like okay if you won the election. How much did you win. And by and if it was stolen that's a very complicated things so You know a lot of bad guys must have been involved with with with With stealing it and he agreed. Yes a lot of bad guys. I said who and he said well. I'm not going to tell you now. But i i know when i'm when i'm ready to tell you i'll certainly let you know. What is it like when you try to get sense out out of him because it is just a stream colleges and what are the you have just run in the book so you get a real sense of. You can hear his voice as you're reading it but when you're trying to get something useful out of him. How did you cope with the doesn't speak and percentages. It's you you. can't you just have to accept that all you're going to get is the is what comes out of his. His mouth is kind of spray and it doesn't really frankly matter who he's talking to. He's he's completely agnostic as to as to who is sitting in front of him. So it's whatever is on his mind at that given moment it comes out. And you just transcribe but just moved for was then. So he's he's convinced. The election is a has been stolen from him before to january the sixth brits. Tony appreciate the january. The sixth now is just the show hand in america for what happens on the capital in the way that previously dates have been normally terror attacks and things like that you get. Everyone knows what that date means the day that the trump supporters marched on the on the capitol building. Do you think he knew what he was doing when he said we're gonna walk down and i'll be 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.

"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment

"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.
