Christine Todd Whitman on Biden's First 100 Days in Office
"Marks the first one hundred days in office for us. President joe biden so for the next five days. We'll be looking at some of the issues defined this time in office and hear opinions from across the political spectrum on how he's faring for today's first installment of our series we hear from christine. Todd whitman a former republican governor of new jersey and former head of the environmental protection agency or the epa. Under george w bush. She spoke with monaco's news editor. Chris chuck to offer her impressions of biden's first one hundred days in office and whether she thinks. Republican party is capable of change. Chris began by asking her what she thought of. Joe biden's presidency so far. I very much approve of the cabinet. Appointments he's made the finally a lot of competent people who understand their agencies in their what their portfolios include. I've been very pleased with the people that he has appointed a breadth of his appointments on relative to the environment and integrating environment climate. Change into everything to every and agency. Which is the only way we're going to deal with. This and climate is inability related with. What's happening to us a covert and i think they've done an excellent job in rolling out the vaccines. That's all been good. That part that i think has been less stellar has been dealing with the border because you knew that was going to be a crisis and it would have been helpful if they'd had a little more developed plan to deal with it before he came in because The message had been so negative toward immigrants under the trump administration. You have to believe that. Even if he didn't say anything and he being kept the borders closed there. Were still going to be people who say this another era and i'm desperate to get away from the horror that i live with every day which is absolutely true but as i say i like it as appointments like the fact that he's focused on the vaccines which he has to be to get the economy back. That's the first step the environment is if we don't start to do without intelligently we're going to continue to have these kind of issues plus the fact we know that we are paying billions of dollars every year and damage repair from these storms. That are occurring ever more and with more ferocity because of climate change so that is appropriate. Everything that's happening there. It's just been the border. That's been a bit a stutter. Start to say the least

And i can understand the limit three and a half million shares. They've got sixty five million roughly outstanding. So it's like just called five percent. Maximum dilution which is not too terrible. But the amazing thing here is this is a good lesson for investors and something. I learned from marty whitman. Who has like one of the old school value investors and he. He passed away a few years ago but he. He's a really brilliant guy. And i recommend his books. I've read a couple of his books. And what whitman wittman was. He told the story of one of his books. He was working with the ceo of a company called neighbors. I think it was neighbors. Industries an oil and gas company and. He finally convinced the ceo. He's you don't raise money when you need it. You raise money when you can when the market is offering such good terms that you just can't say no and that's what's happening with game stop now it just so happens that they need it right there.

Three years is down almost half its down like forty five percent it was nine point two billion i think like five point one billion now and you know like maybe a billion five may not even a third of it is online sales saw the rest of his coming through their stores and of course in twenty eighteen they got rid of. They sold their their. At stores they had something like thirteen hundred. At t. stores and they sold that business. They sold his assets. So they're all they're left with this game stop stores

She's the ceo and founder of quantum success learning academy in quantum success. Coaching academy which is a ten month law of attraction coaching certification program and she has helped over three thousand life coaches and helped countless others to unlock their power to manifest. Which i think we will probably also talk about here today. so i i'll christie. Tell us a little bit about Being an energy master first off like what what is that actually And and then what do we need to do to become. I guess what is it. Why is it important. Maybe that's yeah what is it. It's fair actually. Yeah that's a great question. I would big question when is it. Is you know you get to be the woops. Did i go out there you go. That was interesting. It shifted screens. I don't know why did that. So yeah energy mastery is really about you being the the employer of your life and therefore your creations and so we. Our consciousness is what creates our reality. We know this by universal laws by knowing that everything is vibration. Everything is energy and when we look at burley break breakdown what is our consciousness. It's what we say what. We think how we perceive or believe what we feel. And sometimes that's a big one because we don't wanna feel. We suppress our feelings. So we're still attracting from that place and then how we act and those are the things that we have influence over. We don't have influence over. What our partners are doing or how we want to change them or all the other things that are outside in what's happening in the world but we have a choice in how we respond to those things so mastering our own energy is really understanding. That you know life isn't sometimes full array moore's unicorns. Unfortunately there are things that happen right. We get sideswiped by information. We hear things in his could be shocking to the system and it's being able to feel the feelings to process them to choose the thoughts that we wanna feel really getting into a place where we are deliberately in tune and in check with our own energy because you know it very much looks like we're physical beings. We are right now. We're also energy and the way that we bring in energy is that we're energy. Receivers were always receiving an energy. We have trillions and trillions of cells at all have receptor sites on them that are needing energy and what most people do is they go out into the universe they go out to a grocery store and they get inundated by you know frequencies in energies in waves or maybe they call their mom or they call their friend. The friend is fear of something. So you're getting this energy that's coming into your system but if you're the one deliberately choosing the energy that you want to bring in now those receptor sites and the cells are filled so other people's energy bounces off because you are already filled so it's like urine energy receiver. You're an energy container right. We don't wanna to receive an energy and give it away receive an energy hold it ourselves. And then we're also energy transmitters and that's where the ways that we talked about we transmit energy by the words that we say by the thoughts that we think by the motions by the actions that we take by the perspective and all of that then by law of attraction comes back to us because if everything is waves of energy and it is quantum physics has shown it. Modern science has shown it. Einstein talked about it rate. Everything's waves and particles of energy. If we're the ones creating our reality by what we're sending out were the ones that are mastering our

Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys.

How Quibi crashed and burned so quickly
"So equity was always the odd duck all the new streaming services that immersive last year for just for listeners who don't stand top of the streaming rewards just give quick description of what could be is and what's happened to it. Quimby was a mobile initially mobile only than kind of transition to be mobile centric streaming video service. That made cereal like tv. In very short episodes everything was like ten minutes or last and it was very very expensive programming. They made big budget programming with really big stars. So it's pitch was that it was kind of like a curated. Youtube only with like the biggest and brightest of hollywood involved. The problem is they launched the service that was designed to be watched. Moberly on the go in those like brief much of your day where you have a spare ten minutes to watch something getting coffee. Waiting for us. Launched it at the beginning of all the lockdowns keeping people trapped in their homes so they had a mobile on the ghost service launching when nobody was mobile or on the go. That's one of the problems with but there's underlying consideration that. The premise of the service given that people already have youtube and they can watch other things on the go to netflix on the go on their mobile phones that the premise of this being a service at all was flawed from the beginning. So what's happened. At least as far as we know right now is that would be instead of trying to survive after six months is going to just shut down. We don't know exactly win but at some point the service is going to go dark and this programming is going to. I don't exactly know what's going to happen. So all this stuff that they made. Yeah i wanna get into that but it just. It's interesting just sort of looking at the background of their the foundation that this company was built on one point. Seven billion dollars in funding of meg. Whitman from hewlett packard. Lots of a-list talent But medina think looking back at this now it was was the model just fundamentally or was it just a matter. Bedtime may and launching in the middle of a pandemic. i remember maybe even before they had a name. I believe they katzenberg jeffrey katzenberg. The hollywood Whitman as you mentioned the ceo of the service they went to south by and they had this whole presentation. And i remember coming out of this presentation being like these people have no idea what they're getting into you know. They had really really ambitious goals. They talked a really big game but they're getting into something. That is really hard to break into going up against something like youtube. Which has two billion people watching it every month. So that's one way to kind of put in perspective whether or not the pandemic was the real. You know silver bullet that killed qube but also mentioned that i did. I did a poll on twitter. Asking people this exact question because they make whitman. Jeffrey kassenberg worth open letter. The apologized for disappointing. Their investors their workers their talent and they said in there. You know it we may never know what was the problem here was timing or was this a bad idea to begin with and so i had a poll on twitter quoting that portion of the letter and saying well which was it could be equals a bad idea or timing and i think eighty six percent of people could be was just a bad idea to begin with so

Trump tactics to overturn election could have lasting effect.
"I'm anthony davis president. Donald trump's efforts to challenge the legitimacy of the election. And seeking to overturn. The will of the voters could have staying power. Trump's tactics are already inspiring other candidates and have been embraced by a wide array of republicans supporters including congressional candidates state lawmakers potty chairs conservative legal groups and appointees to previously little known state said vacation boards the breadth of support for trump's effort could be a troubling sign for future elections. What this president is doing is poisoning. Democracy former michigan governor jennifer. Granholm said and yes. He is setting a precedent suggesting that it's okay to violate these norms. That have made our country. Great granholm democrats joined with former new jersey governor. Christine todd whitman. Republican to raise concerns about trump's refusal to concede and efforts to undermine the integrity of the election. This is not who we are as americans and we don't want the public coming away from this thinking. This is the norm said whitman. Who served in. George w bush's administration trump and his allies of pushed conspiracies involving voting machines manipulated by dead foreign leaders and tens of thousands of fraudulent mail ballots that somehow escaped layers of security in scrutiny by election workers across the country they have filed bogus lawsuits without evidence trying to pressure state lawmakers into seating their own presidential electors and sought to influence low level party members who sit on the state and local boards that certify election results this is despite the fact that the federal government owned cybersecurity arm declared the presidential election the most secure in american history an attorney general william bar at the department of justice uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome trump's attacks on republican officials in georgia and insistence his defeat by joe biden must be overturned on disgusting the republican lieutenant governor of the southern state said on sunday. It's not american. Jeff duncan said. It's not what democracy is all about but it's reality right now. Even so trump has found friendly lawmakers and party officials willing to bolster his claims and adopt he's tactics. Meanwhile on sunday trump said he's personal. Attorney rudy giuliani has tested positive for the coronavirus making him the latest in trump's in a circle to contract the disease that is now surging across the us. The seventy six year old former new york mayor has traveled extensively to battleground states in recent days and weeks in an efforts to help trump subvert his election loss
"whitman" Discussed on This Day in History Class
"Weren't interested in learning from the whitman's and did not care about christianity. The also maintained that since the whitman's built the mission on their land there were obligated to give them goods but in the tribe members is marcus wasn't fulfilling his obligations aware of the whitman missions struggles with the chi us and with money the american board of commissioners for foreign missions even ordered the mission to close in eighteen forty two though the board later rescinded its order. The mission soon became a place where immigrants on the oregon trail stopped to rest. Gather supplies and receive care and treatment. As more people moved west there was an influx of white immigrants in the area. The kyw us were aware of the harmful effects. The arrival of white populations was having on native american tribes and other places they brought with them disease and in eighteen forty seven. An epidemic of measles killed half the people. The coyotes were hungry. Sick and unhappy with how stingy marquez was in his trading and marcus was unable to keep the epidemic under control for the kyw us even though he had been carrying for white and native american people who had been affected. They believe that. Marcus as a doctor. Religious leader was essentially killing their families to make room for more white immigrants. This was not unprecedented. As native americans in the north west have been threatened with germ warfare and their beliefs about the power. White people had was exploited on november. Twenty ninth eighteen. Forty-seven a group of tribesmen attacked the whitman mission which was sheltering dozens of people. Mostly immigrants. The killed thirteen people including narciso and marcus. They destroyed most of the buildings at the mission and held around fifty women and children captive for weeks two children died and the other captives were ransomed historians agreed that the keys were defending their tribe since the cayennes believed that marcus was to spread on them. News of the massacre reached washington. Dc in eighteen forty eight and congress responded by establishing the oregon territory that august the provisional legislature of oregon and governor george abernethy authorized volunteers to go to war against the kyw us and a unit of volunteers was dispatched to the dow's fighting soon broke out and the war continued sporadically for several years.

Obama: US 'adversaries have seen us weakened'
"Barack Obama called Donald Trump at about three o'clock in the morning to congratulate him. Even though Mr Trump had lost the popular vote and took the electoral college by less than 1% in three states today, President Trump declines to accept the verdict of the voters despite losing by greater margins to President elect Joe Biden. Mr Obama hasn't spoken of the election standoff until today. We spoke to the 44th president on the release of his new book, A Promised Land, a memoir of his early years and first term. What is your advice in this moment for President Trump? Well, the president is A public servant. They are temporary occupants of the office by design. And When your time is up. Uh, Then it is your job, too. With the country first and thinking beyond your own ego and your own. Interests and your own disappointments. My advice to President Trump is if you want. At this late stage in the game to be remembered as somebody who could come country First. It's time for you to do the same thing. In your view, it is time for him to concede. Absolutely I will. I mean, I think it was time for him to concede. Probably the day after the election or at the latest two days after the election, I When you look at the numbers objectively, Joe Biden will have won handily. There is no scenario in which Any of those states would turn the other way, and certainly not enough to reverse be outcome of the election. More than the courtesy of a concession, the Trump White House is declining to free up the usual funds and facilities for the incoming administration. President elect Biden is not receiving secret national security briefings. As Mr Trump did when he was president elect. What In your estimation? Would our adversaries be thinking right now? Russia China about the fact that the transition is not moving forward. Well, I look, I think our adversaries Have seen US weakened not just as a consequence this election, but over the last Several years. We have these cleavages in the body politick. That They're convinced they can exploit. There's an old adage that partisan politics should stop at the water's edge right that. When it comes to Our foreign policy that it is the United States of America, not the divided states of America. We met the former president at a symbol of America's past divisions. The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery was a hospital in the civil war. Clara Barton and Walt Whitman cared for patients in the building where the 16th president consoled his wounded. We joined Mr Obama's peers in the gallery of the President's to talk about his book. I'm curious about the title. I think a lot of people feel that we are farther from a promised land. Well, I titled it the promised land. Because even though we may not get there in our lifetimes, even if we experience hardships and disappointments along the way That I Create a more perfect union, not a perfect union. But a more perfect union. You
Immortals Gaming Club Are Getting Out of the Esports Team Space
"Start with a big story. Is you know it's impossible to ignore big numbers. And i'll just give you the headlines of three stories. But they're all the same story. Basically i just i like the three headlines because they all tell a little bit different side of it. The first year was immortals club raises additional twenty six million dollars. The second year was from bloomberg says meg. Whitman backed firm to way sale of overwatch team again talking about immortals gaming club and then the third immortals gaming club raises twenty. Six million led by ex quickly. Exact meg whitman. So if you put all these three together you sort of have all the information. You need witches with immortals calling her ex quickly exact. I mean could she is that that has got to be the most subtle you tag career up until on his business like her. Oh the ebay right yeah. That's better than leading quickly. Wow you're only as good as your last gig. You're only as good as your last exum be. Feels like something. Like as a as a term. Like i would order an like an exotic restaurant like well. I will start with the vegetable three way. Medley have the x. Qube for my main interest rate and goes just leaving puzzled. Sometimes i am puzzled. William by how your brain works that brain that it's such a funny term. So so here's here's what we know from the just the three headlines. Immortals gaming is raising a raised twenty six million dollars. It's being led by meg whitman. Who used to be equipped he also ebay footmen footnote and they're looking to sell their overwatch team. Believe it or not so. They've already got rid of their like previously. Got rid of their Call of duty league team And now the overwatch league team. They're looking to to get rid of it and i'll just read. I'm going to present you all the information guys. And then you can discuss. But it says immortals gaming intends to focus less on city specific teams and more on businesses related to online gaming such as gamers club a subscription service in latin america which connects video game players. The company said last week. It's selling a team playing and activists call of duty league to one hundred thieves And now so. They've sold off their call of duty league team now. They're saying they want to sell their los angeles valley and overwatch team. In the meantime the raid they raised twenty. Six million led by meg whitman. What do you guys make this news. There's a lot of. there's a lot to unpack. You're right the amount. They've raised be That they're divesting of assets sort of as part of this razor almost next to it which you don't usually hear about You guys think jeff. Lindsay william whoever wants to start here. What do you guys think of of mortals gaming club. And the way they're going. Let me go last. I have some some hot takes. Let me last go first. Then let's let's open with some hot takes you're all my take on. This is a little is a little more nuanced. But i think what's really interesting about this announce those two things to read into this. One is a mortals has just not done well as in east sports work right. They haven't won anything. They haven't really built a differentiated brand. They've been blown. Apart in the lifestyle category versus other orbs about the best thing they did back in late two thousand eighteen by gamers club right and make a move into south american marquette. This reads like a real strategic shift into you know gaming services and service provision right. Because you don't. You don't sell off both gated franchises and in particular. You don't sell off call of duty called duties actually starting to perform now like it's unusual to sell that asset unless you are If you're still committed to really making the team piece work so i think an underscore here as immortals you know is going to be getting out of the team space. I think a second thing i would add to this though in the morrison is the fact that they are announcing looking for a sale of overwatch without the buyer. List william razi to me because that is a direct that first of all signals a little bit of urgency right like we're trying to get rid of this asset gimme buyers right because like to be honest with you like like you don't need for an asset like that you know you don't you don't really need to do this sort of thing right like you don't know who the people are who are in the market for this The the second thing is. I think this is like a forcing mechanism with activision blizzard. It seems like they want out of that league and announcing they're going to sell is a really good piece of lever to communicate activision blizzard. Hey it's not working right and also to kind of tip their hat about the seriousness of their frustrations with with that business right now. So that's my read on. This is the announcement of sale is a little tactical. It's partly strategically. They want to divest. And it's partly. They're trying to communicate something to activision blizzard because they didn't announce again these. These are sort of deals. Where like you read about in favor of like. Oh i too could go by that. You know what i mean. There's a limited set of groups and these guys ono each other right like you. Don't you're not going to be surprised by who's coming out by this org slot like it wasn't like come on hundred. Thieves did call of duty right. It wasn't like josie sports club.
Who Could Serve IN The Biden Administration
"Now. The current incumbent of the white house is showing no signs of planning to pack his suitcases. But that hasn't stopped president-elect joe biden from pushing ahead with his plans for the fresh administration a large part of this is the people who will make this administration so comparative unknown who will become household. Names come january for more. I'm joined by louis. Lukens a former. Us diplomat and a senior partner at sigme global advisors. Welcome back lewis. You want it now. i'm i mentioned here. That comparative unknown but the list of the runners and writers to make up the Biden cabinet this pretty well known names in there. He's going to bring on a really experienced team of people. All of whom most of them will have had experienced during the obama or administration's These will be maybe not household names To the american people but most of them will be known certainly within the national security establishment for the top jobs at defense and the state department and national security adviser and those kinds of jobs. So where do we start with. Who's going to pay. When i mean he's likely to name a chief of staff this week. Isn't he chief of staff this week. Probably ron claim who was as chief of staff before and and is a well respected in washington that liked cross the. I'll have to say for the cabinet positions Biden will be a little bit constrained by the senate because the senate of course has to approve The the secretary of state and defense and all those main all the cabinet positions so and we think the republicans are probably going to maintain control of the senate. So what that means is for example. There was some talk that elizabeth warren wanted to be secretary of the treasury. That will not happen now. The the republicans in the senate will not confirm a left-wing progressive democrat for a top job. So it'll force by his cabinet choices to be more centrist Which is not a bad thing actually But it means at that. The progressive wing of the party won't get the sort of personnel appointments obeyed hope to see in washington now filling. His cabinet job says he will give priority to technocratic experience. Loyalty and diversity. What does that mean in terms of who. We are likely to see for some of the top jobs well so he has pledged to have the most diverse cabinet ever. I think so. I think the front runner for secretary of state is susan rice. Her confirmation might be a little bit difficult because the republicans do not like her. But i think they will still try to get her through. I think we'll see a woman a treasury for the first time ever lael brainard. I think we'll see a female secretary of defense for the first time ever with blank florida. Yes michelle foreign. I of course so. I think we'll see a lot of women. And i think we'll see some. And then when you get down into the secretary of urban housing and urban development and human services and health and human services and things like that. I think we'll see people of color We'll see women will see Just in general a much more diverse cabinet than what we have now which is basically a lot of older white men. Let's look at the way that this actually could play out. You mentioned the idea of susan. Rice becoming the next secretary of state we need enormous job in rebuilding us foreign policy after four rather damaging years. One could argue. I mean she's former. Us ambassador to the un national security advisor to president obama. She's she's walk the walk. She's got the experience. She's close to joe biden. She'll be good at rebuilding alliances but there is that fair. Isn't there that if you start trying to bring back people from the obama administration. How much is concerned that. I think that joe biden is simply trying to wind the clock back by four years when america is a very different place now will america is a different place in the world is a different place so there is a bit of that risk. But i think that hurts that biden's team and and his cabinet members will make very clear that they recognize that reality and they certainly are going to bring Some of the values in core beliefs that that they that they had when they worked during the obama administration. Including you know for someone like susan. Rice a belief in working closely with partners and allies in in a belief in multilateral. Ism but you know overlaid with the recognition that the world is certainly a different place in that china is stronger than it was four years ago. And we're dealing with you know. Global threats like terrorism and climate change and In the pandemic so certainly a different range of issues in a different approach to how to work on them But as. I said you know the same values that these people had when they work for obama For years ago one of the big words associated with joe button is unifying and there is a suggestion that he's going to have what's known as a unity cabinet bringing in prominent republicans. How's that going to work. Well it's unclear. I think it's a great idea. In principle to bring in a couple of republicans but some of the republicans whose names have been floated including john casick and mitt. Romney are very very unpopular with the left of the democratic party so he has to be careful in doing so not to upset his own party too much. I think a meg whitman's name has been thrown around as a possible candidate for secretary of commerce. She is someone Lifelong republican but she did endorse a biden and actually endorsed hillary clinton for years ago She is someone who i think would be acceptable to the left of the party. Someone like john. Casick are mitt romney's little bit harder to convince the the progressive that they add value without detracting from the cabinet.
HOw Has White Supremecy Changed In The US
"V Colorado US presidential election campaign which draws to a merciful conclusion. Four days from now has been such a circus that events which would have defined. Other contests have been swiftly forgotten among those wells the thwarting earlier this month of an apparent plot by far right still styled militiamen to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the subsequent discovery of links between those alleged conspirators and of the white supremacist groups. This is a cohort which has been repeatedly. Nodded and winked at from the highest pulpit in the land. These last four years. What happens in the next four? Whatever happens on Tuesday well earlier I spoke to Kathleen, Balu Assistant Professor of US history at the University of Chicago and offer of bringing the war home, the white power movement and paramilitary America I began by asking Kathleen how the white supremacist movement has changed between the nine, thousand, nine hundred, and now there's two differences in what's happening in the nineteen eighties and forward one is at the violence. This movement is interested in carrying out is explicitly anti-state they want to overthrow the federal government. So this is one of the reasons that I think white nationalist as a term can be confusing the nation and white nationalism nineteen eighty-three is not the united. States, it is the Irian Nation and they're imagining a fundamental overthrow of the country and all of its democratic practices. So the other thing that's different is that this movement is bringing together a lot of different people in every way but race, it is an. Incredibly, diverse social movement. We're talking about a whole bunch of different sub sections of white supremacists thinking. So this is the first time in the nineteen eighties. The we see a unification between clansmen, neo-nazis skinheads, radical tax resisters, posse comitatus members, and then in the early nineteen nineties, we start to see militia members in these groups as well. Now, all of that is emblematic of a movement that has taken a page from earlier. American. History. So it it it borrows from the opportunism of earlier clan mobilizations, but it's Very different in its deadly intent and in the number of people is able to bring together in this new set of sort of violent belief systems. If you consider its car numbers and its current firepower, how is impossible to quantify how dangerous these movements are obviously, we had seen in recent weeks the apparent thwarting of a plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer Michigan but is that an it's a depressing thought but is that likely a straw in the wind will there be more of that sort of thing not. Only will there be more, but that story is already proving to be more than it looked at first glance. There were reports today that members of the base, which is an underground paramilitary wide power group have been arrested in connection to that plot. So already, we're seeing cross group organization and were seeing how this is working in network much the way it did in the nineteen eighties. So one of the most important things that people can do a to understand what this is an to combat it is simply To connect these stories with one another, it's very easy especially in a news cycle when people feel so buffeted with information at all times and sort of feel under attack by their own news feeds, I think it's very difficult to do the work of paying attention but it it's absolutely critical here because it's not just about the group that tried to kidnap Governor Whitman it's about the the connections between that group. The proud boy is Adam often in the base boo-boys, there are many of these groups on. The scene now now to your question about numbers, this is a very difficult one I'm not sure we even have an accurate headcount for the earlier movement, and that's where we have the the most consistent set of archival materials. As a historian. I'm very reluctant to make specific claims about the movement right now because I don't have my sources together yet and I won't have them for another ten or twenty years but what we know from reading the history and from reading the news. So in other words, what the? That history gives us can show us is that we have every reason to be concerned about further activity and escalating violence. This is a movement that is intent on mass casualty attacks that has used not just voter intimidation, but all kinds of other violent means over years and that has been organizing in this way quite effectively for decades. If not generations, this is not a new problem and it's not something that will go away quickly and the other thing is that this is a movement that is organized around sell style action much. Like a group in in radical Islamic terror would would work mix up that this group has been doing that since nineteen eighty-three, they're very, very good at it because they use cell style organization, there's not a great correlation between rising size of group membership lists and rising capacity for violent action. Because if you're trying to carry out an act of style terror, you're not interested in two thousand people who are going to come out on Saturday and March Down Main Street. You're interested in six people who are willing to detonate a bomb. So the difference is sometimes what we see is a shrinking of membership before an intense surge and violence I'm very concerned that that's where we are now and I think you know the people who do have archival information for the present day moment are saying the same thing. So I'm hearing this from people in the FBI people at Department of Homeland Security who have access to surveillance documents. I'm hearing this from people at the southern poverty law center and other watchdog groups who? Spend their time monitoring white power and militia TV, online, and most of hearing this from people who work in de radicalization trying to help people out of the movement everyone is sounding the alarm bell right now, everyone is running up the red flag and I think you know you don't have to listen to me. I'm just a historian, but I think everyone is calling everyone they can think of to to sort of try to get people to pay attention to this very grave situation. Hunch they're bringing an acceleration in the momentum of these groups because of if obviously radically different reasons the last two presidents you had the the fact of a black president of the United States, which clearly a number of people had a significant problem with and he's followed by a president who is to put it charitably equivocal in his condemnation of these groups. Yes. Absolutely and we're seeing a very clear relationship between political rhetoric and extremist action is that to price do you think can be put back in the tube night at all? That's a good metaphor for it. I usually say we can't on ring the bell. Exactly the problem right because you know if you take something like the president's remarks in the first debate about calling the proud boys to quote stand back and stand by even if you take the most generous interpretation of his remarks and say, okay, perhaps perhaps he was fed that group name and he doesn't know who they are perhaps he meant to tell them. To stand down even if we take all of that as given I think that there is a very real problem i. in the fact that it's not just the proud boys who heard that as a paramilitary call to readiness there are many other underground groups like the Bass Lake the guys in Michigan who heard that call as the call to action. And there's another problem of even in the case of activists who right now support the president. There's no indication that he has the power to call these people off. Once he has ignited away of violence as I said, this is a movement that has been expressly anti-government for many many years, and this is a strange thing about the United States that it has since the Vietnam war been. Very possible to hold the position in the United States of being anti government and pro president or pro-military or pro cop at the same time I mean we see Ronald Reagan making statements about how the government is the problem not the solution while he is the head of the government. So that sort of gymnastics act of balancing that since a fracture is not a problem for people here. So, there is a way that you can be pro trump right now and still be dedicated to violent overthrow of the state down the road or at some present moment and another note of caution is just the last time that this movement became very deadly setting off the string of events that led to the Oklahoma City bombing, and you know the the most horrific mass casualty attack for the United States between Pearl Harbor Nine Eleven. The last time that happened was not under a leftist administration it was under Reagan and it was because activists in this movement saw Reagan's perceived moderation as a sign. that. Political means could never deliver the kind of change that they wanted. Even Reagan was not offering what they wanted, which was reestablishment of Jim Crow Segregation or reinstatement of slavery or establishment of a white homeland things like this were much too radical for mainstream politics. So there's a real chance that even trump will hit align where it's too extreme for him. I mean even trump is not talking about reestablishing slavery and at that point I think there might be a wave of dissatisfied people if he's re-elected who are interested in mass casualty attacks just finally is there an aspect of this which is? Not just or perhaps beyond politics and beyond even race it strikes me just looking at the. Way in which the members of these movements present themselves, there's this strange cartoonish idea of masculinity in play. You know it is a very masculine movement, but it turns out that both in the earlier movement and today women are incredibly important to this activism You don't always see that in the public facing part of what they're doing. But in the period of my study, there's a whole bunch of women who are sort of forming the social network holds these people together and really makes possible violent action and they're doing everything from publishing their own newspapers to running their. Own Auxiliary groups to driving getaway cars and disguising people when they're on the Lam and even as they're doing all that they are saying things like I'm not an activist I'm not political I would never seek a leadership role because you know within this worldview out sweat good womanhood looks like but however you cut it women are incredibly important here and we would be foolish to think that those deep social interactions aren't part of what is sustaining this groundswell. I'm just you're just finally finally and feel free if you like to to refuse to gaze into a crystal ball but. How do you see this playing out in the next? Well, the next few weeks I if the polls are correct and Donald Trump does lose office on Tuesday. Well I, think everyone in the United States. Approaching all polls with a degree of caution from now on for. Immediate. Historical reasons. My concern here is that there is no mental picture that I can paint. There's no series of events that I can see that would make someone at this point with this set of social pressures with this worldview simply put down the weapons and go home and say, okay, well, we lost this round. It's time to go do some democratic change somewhere else. So my concern is that if trump is while if biden is elected, I think that these activists will not only be frustrated and rally look for mass casualty are opportunities if trump. Is elected I think that one ends game has to do with them, feeling dissatisfied and turning to mass casualty attacks in route to overthrowing the government. Again, as they've been doing for quite a long time, another route would be a continuation of sort of this Lincoln in an odd slash outright calling to arms line of rhetoric I mean there's a way that groups like this and other contexts have become strike forces and death squads for authoritarian regimes and there we can look to southern America and central, America for many examples of how that's happened. All all three of these are threats to Americans and to our democracy. So I think it is a very bleak time for people who pay attention to this particular part of the American political life. But was Kathleen Blues speaking to me earlier, Kathleen's book bring the war home the white power movement and paramilitary America is published by BELKNAP.
Startup Streamer Quibi Quits
"A huge Hollywood experiment ended its life in a way that seems somehow fitting qube accompany designed to bring miniature Netflix's quality shows to your smartphone call. It quits earlier this month like it's programs which were no longer than ten minutes apiece. quickies vary life was itself short only about six months long the infant media company hit attracted almost two billion dollars from investors about one hundred, fifty, million dollars in advertising and some big name actors and directors. As a result quibbles dramatic closure has spawned no end of speculative criticism about what the startup did wrong and whether it's leaders Hollywood powerhouse, Jeffrey Katzenberg and former HP. CEO Meg Whitman did anything right? In case you haven't heard of it. The original idea behind Qube was to make high quality programs that were short enough to watch from start to finish. While waiting to do something else say riding the subway were standing at checkout line. These wouldn't be user generated youtube like videos but what qube envisioned as the quote next generation of storytelling dramas comedies a non-fiction programs cut into quick bites the origin of the company's name you get the idea. QUBE had the bad luck to launch during the pandemic that meant the service designed explicitly for people out and about debuted when people were in definitely not out and about position as another streamer. But Not at first on your TV quickly did what most streamers and new apps do when it launched in early April it offered a ninety day free trial about a million and a half people signed up and presumably began watching quickies original shows thrillers like. Wireless about a drunk man caught in a New Year's Eve snowstorm free Ray Sean drama about a black man accused of killing a police officer and last looks a series about scandals in the fashion world. As I said earlier at launch, you can only watch on a smartphone despite the fact that most viewers were quarantined in their homes with perfectly usable TV's at their disposal. It took a few more months for quick to make the TV leap. The question back in May and June was how many of those initial free viewers would convert to paying customers quickies price was high five month with ads were eight dollars without them as the verge points out apple TV plus costs four, ninety, nine a month worse quickies higher prices more expensive than Disney plus. The answer on those conversions was clear. Qube didn't get anywhere near enough money or viewers, and with that dearth viewers, some advertisers threatened to canceled on October Twenty Second Katzenberg Whitman published an open letter on medium announcing queries collapse. The founders laid some of the blame on Covid nineteen but not all in addition to timing they said, another likely reason could be. That the idea itself wasn't strong enough to justify a standalone streaming service. Indeed. A great deal of the criticism says exactly that the format itself was flawed from the start ten minutes may have been far too long for some content and far too short for others. A sort of nether world that works for user generated youtube content, but not for expensive productions that aspire to be the next Netflix. As one example, the Guardian reporter. Jack Bernhardt commended free ratio on actors Steffan Jones Laurence Fishburne an emmy winner. Jasmine Safest Jones for spectacular performances in powerful production. But he added quote it feels almost offensive to everyone involved that I can only watch it on tiny phone screen. Furthermore, he said it should have been a two hour film not fifteen quick bites. The company is exploring selling the rights to some content screenwriters and producers with shows underdevelopment or left to try to sell them elsewhere a tough sell given that most media companies can't use five or ten minute episodes. is returning about three hundred, fifty million dollars to investors and giving severance to two hundred employees. The Wall Street Journal reports, Katzenberg and Whitman's letter puts quickies. Of the entire very busy streaming media ecosystem the executives would never have imagined launching during a pandemic they said, but they admitted other businesses have faced these unprecedented challenges and have found their way through it. Indeed, we've reported here on boom times for Netflix's and Disney plus among others all of benefited enormously from lockdowns. The mistake Qube made lies in a different sphere altogether says verge critic Julia Alexander Qube didn't fail because TIKTOK. existed she says, it failed because executives refuse to see Tiktok its biggest competition she wrote tick tock has exploded globally with an ever growing mountain of user generated short form video video that is virtually free to produce free to consume. But qube had its I trained on net flicks if Alexander is correct quimby was looking for threats or a role model in the wrong direction. In an already struggling Hollywood, it's hard to watch the layoffs of employees and the suffering of artists who shows are now killed. A great deal of talent converged around quipping remains to be seen. We're all that talent. Finding out.

"Some accounts say it was because they found a copy of leaves of grass on his desk either way he got fired because of leaves of grass. Women's civil war experiences would lead to one of his few originally not leaves of grass publications of poetry, and that was drum taps signed a contract for its publication near the end of the war, and it was already ready to go to print when. Lincoln was assassinated although he was able to write an ad Husky the camps today which was dedicated to Lincoln before the book went to the typesetter. By coincidence Whitman was at his mother's house in April of eighteen sixty five when Lincoln was assassinated he had also been away from Washington DC when it was attacked by the confederate army and when the war officially ended, it was his mother's door and lilacs that featured in his elegiac poem. When lilacs last in the door yard bloomed that poem an captain my captain were later published in a volume called. To drum taps around the end of the war whitman met pitcher doyle, a former confederate soldier. Originally from Ireland, he was working as a street car driver doyle would later describe it. We fell to each other at once women and never lives together although Whitman often wrote of wanting to you and their relationship continued for most of the rest of Whitman's life although it did cool after he left Washington. After the war. Whitman had to figure out what to do with his poetry leaves of grass had been a celebration of a grand chaotic welcoming spirit of democracy and of a young nation growing up into a country that was dynamic and energetic and free the post civil war nation didn't feel like that at all. The eighteen sixty seven edition of leaves of grass that followed was full of errors and assembled in multiple configurations. Some versions included drum taps and sequel to drum taps but others did not and they're ordering changed from one to another. It was as though the book had been torn up and then haphazardly put back together. Women seem to approach leaves of grass as though the book of poems was the United States and in future editions, he would continue to try to figure out how to unite all of his work from both before and after the war into one unified whole that still made sense. He wrote other work as well including details, vistas and passage to India, which came out each of them in eighteen seventy. On January twenty third eighteen seventy three Walt Whitman had a serious stroke that may his mother's health began to fail and he managed to make it to Camden New Jersey to see her just three days before she died after trying to go back to Washington he soon wound up in Camden again to live with his brother George and George his wife Liu..

"Then on January twenty fifth nineteen ninety-five Alice L. Bernie of the manuscript division of the Library of Congress received a phone call. She spoke to Selby Kipper who worked for the Book Manuscript Department of the esteemed. Sotheby's auction house in New York City. He was looking for information on a notebook that had been featured in nineteen twenty. One Book of Whitman's unpublished writings. He wanted to know if the notebook had been a temporary loan to the library or a permanent gift. He also wanted to find out if it was still in the libraries possession. Bernie couldn't believe what she was hearing. The notebook he was asking about was clearly one of the missing items from the Harnett collection. Tense WITH EXCITEMENT. Bernie sent him a copy of the nineteen fifty four pamphlet prepared by the library and the FBI two days later on January. Twenty seven the vice president of Sotheby's David Redden Cold Bernie back. He announced they had not one but four of the missing Whitman notebooks plus the Cardboard Butterfly on February twenty four. Th Library officials accompanied by several. Fbi agents traveled to New York to take possession of the items. The return of the notebooks was reported across the Country Library of Congress official David Wig door stated the notebooks are the most important material. We could have hoped to recover of anything known in American literature. The foreign notebooks that were recovered in one thousand nine hundred ninety five contain treasure trove of unique information on. Whitman's early life among them is the so-called earliest notebook dated to eighteen forty seven. Almost a decade before leaves of grass was published. It includes an early form of verses. That would eventually make it into one of Whitman's signature poems song of myself another notebook tracks. Whitman's time in Washington. Dc in eighteen sixty three as a nurse for civil war soldiers and yet another Whitman mentions his failure to get a job at the Treasury Department because Secretary Salmon p chase disapproved of his poetry. He states a fellow. Employees thought very much of leaves of grass. But he said that Mr Chase seeing the book on the Center Table said how is it possible? You can have this nasty book here. The FBI immediately began investigating. It was a miracle to have the notebooks back but everyone was wondering where they had been for the past forty years and more importantly if this could lead them to the six notebooks still missing the man who first brought the notebooks and the butterfly to Sotheby's was an attorney who had been going through his dead father's estate. He realized the notebooks were antique but didn't know what they were so he asks subsidies to appraise them. Neither the man's name nor his father's name has ever been released publicly. The man told Sotheby's that his father had received the books as a gift from a friend thirty years earlier the name of the friend is known by the FBI but it also has never been revealed in fact the F. B. I. has never provided any details of their investigation to the public. Probably because the case is still ongoing what seems clear however is that no one was ever charged or arrested in connection with the return of the notebooks in the Nineteen Hundred Ninety S. No information has ever come to light about how the notebooks were originally stolen. Despite meticulous searches of the library complex itself. There was always the possibility that the items had somehow been misplaced or accidentally destroyed but the recovery in the nineteen ninety s proved once and for all that the notebooks had been stolen speculation on the thief's identity has tended to focus on an inside job. The theft might have even occurred when library staff were packing the items in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. Two though Alvin Cramer had supervised the packing. He couldn't have been there every moment for each container. A staffer might easily have falsified a packing slip intending to sell his prize to the highest bidder on the black market after the four notebooks were returned in nineteen ninety-five. Herbert Harnett a Yale professor and son of the original donor said that the stolen items were the most important pieces in the collection to have known this. The thief must have been an expert on whitman lending credence to the idea that it might have been someone who worked at the Library of Congress among the six notebooks. Still missing is one.

"Despite his enthusiasm the second edition didn't make much of a stir with the general public either but thanks to Emerson's involvement it did catch the attention of literary critics and their response was overwhelmingly negative. The United States in the mid nineteenth century was puritanical and moralistic. This was an era. When many husbands and wives slept in separate beds and sex was never talked about openly discussion of the human body in its various functions was thoroughly off limits. Whitman broke all those rules and people were scandalized in a poem titled I Sing The body. Electric Whitman described both male and female bodies. Using Imagery. That was shocking. To nineteenth century sensibilities it also depicts the act of reproduction including vivid and lurid images of sex critics were mortified one reviewer described it as preposterous and disgusting and stated one cannot leave it about for chance readers and would be sorry to know that any woman had looked into it past the title page and unfortunately the controversy did little to increase book. Sales Whitman later called the first two editions a dreadful failure but Whitman wasn't one for growing discouraged. He believed in himself and his art and he was convinced that it would only be a matter of time before his critics and the reading public came around so he continued to write every day in his notebooks. Drafting new ideas and editing old poems. Anytime he finished a notebook he would carefully put it away in his desk or on a shelf for easy reference later meanwhile he supported himself by continuing to write for newspapers in eighteen fifty eight. He wrote a series of thirteen essays titled Manley Health and Training published under a pseudonym in the New York Atlas. It was a healthy living guide for men among other things. It encouraged men to wear beards. Take daily cold baths sunbathe nude and follow a diet of primarily meet. He argued that men should wear comfortable footwear recommending. The athletic shoes worn by baseball players. Many of these ideas had I been jotted down and fleshed out in his notebooks as he made observations in his daily life following the success. Whitman returned to leaves of grass. He published a third edition in eighteen sixty with almost one hundred and fifty new poems. His formerly pocket-sized volume was now well over four hundred pages this time. A new factor hindered book sales the civil war by the time. The southern states seceded Whitman. Had fully turned to morally opposed slavery at forty one years. Old Whitman was too old to be drafted into battle but he believed in the cause and wanted to do whatever he could to help so he moved to Washington. Dc and began volunteering as a nurse in a military hospital. He used as notebooks to record information about the patients he was treating including the nature of their wounds and even notes. About what kind of food like to eat. Whitman was still struggling financially and several friends tried to help him find a job in the government however the task was difficult his poems were still infamous and were regarded as being incredibly vulgar for the time because of this he was rejected for work in the Department of the Treasury. When Treasury Secretary Salmon P chase read? Whitman's work. He was so disgusted that he refused to hire the man as the civil war came to a close in the spring of eighteen. Sixty five whitman finally found a job with the bureau of Indian affairs while working as a clerk. He began drafting poems in his note. Book about the war that fall. He published a collection of these civil war poems. The collection proved to be timely and popular and Whitman quickly published a second volume with eighteen more entries one of those was attributed to the recently assassinated. Abraham Lincoln. Oh captain my captain. The poem vividly depicts the emotional tug of war felt by many Americans during eighteen. Sixty five the war had been one but Lincoln had been murdered just a few days later. The poem contrast the joy of a ship arriving safely in port against the tragedy that the captain had not survive the journey. One of the rare poems. He wrote in rhyming verse. Oh captain my captain would quickly become his most famous. It was the only poem ever included in Anthologies during Whitman's lifetime the popularity and uncontroversial nature of the civil war poems helped increase Whitman's fame but it wasn't enough to overcome the scandalous reputation of his earlier poems. Just a few months. After starting with the Bureau of Indian Affairs the new secretary of the interior fired him after coming across a copy of leaves of grass but by eighteen sixty. Five Whitman had powerful friends on his side. William O'Connor was the editor of the popular magazine. The Evening Post. He not only arranged for Whitman to get a job as a clerk with the Attorney General's office but he also wrote a glowing biography of Whitman for his magazine. It's title the good gray poet would become a nickname for Whitman. Whitman remained a clerk at the attorney. General's office until eighteen seventy two when he was finally able to quit working and live solely off what he earned writing. During that time he published the fourth and fifth editions of leaves of grass in eighteen sixty seven and eighteen seventy one. He also had a collection of poetry published for the first time in Europe where it became a bestseller. His fame began to spread but then in early eighteen seventy three fifty-three-year-old Whitman suffered a stroke. That left him partially paralyzed in need of some support. He decided to move to Camden New Jersey to live with his brother. Despite his physical impairment Whitman continued to write prolifically and again expanded and republished leaves of grass in eighteen. Eighty one by now. He was Assad after lecturer and spent many hours drafting speeches in his small folks on the Lecture Circuit. His concern for his public image began to grow having grown up during the advent of photography. Whitman understood how important pictures could be for his career. During an era when most people weren't photographed more than once or twice in their lifetimes. He had his picture taken multiple times a year new editions of his poetry and ads for his lectures always included updated images in the early eighteen eighties. Whitman had a picture taken that depicted him with his trademark. Heavy greybeard posed with a butterfly on his finger. He later said it was his favorite picture. It appeared in newspapers around the country and in several editions of his bugs. It became one of his most famous portrait's when asked whether the butterfly was real. He insisted it was saying he'd always had a knack for attracting birds and insects. In fact it was made of cardboard a few years after the famous photo was taken. Whitman moved out of his brother's house and bought his own home at the age of sixty five. It was the first and only home he ever owned. He spent the last few years of his life continuing to John Ideas in his notebooks and doing a final revision to his most famous work published in eighteen. Ninety two the sixth and final edition of leaves of grass included three hundred eighty one poems and an essay upon its publication. Whitman wrote it is at last complete. After thirty three years of tackling at it all times and moods of my life fair weather and foul all parts of the land and peace and war young and old. It was his masterwork a chronicle of his life as America's poet. He died at the age of seventy two on March twenty sixth eighteen ninety two just a few months after the last edition of leaves of grass was published when he died Whitman left. A wealth of notebooks journals papers manuscript letters and other items in his he once told a visitor. This is not so much of a mess. It looks the disorder is more suspected then real but the people who had to sift through the chaos left behind would've disagreed. Before his death Whitman had chosen three literary executors from among his friends to collect and preserve what he left behind many documents journals were eventually lost or found their way into private collections. Never to be seen again. But in one thousand nine hundred eighteen one of the executors an attorney named Thomas Biggs Harnett decided to give his portion of the collection to the Library Congress. His donation contained more than three thousand items including books correspondence written manuscripts newspaper. Clippings and the Cardboard Butterfly Whitman had once insisted was real. Harnett wanted the library of Congress to have the items. Because of Whitman's Decade Long Association with DC. The collection was turned over to the Library. In the fall of nineteen seventy not included in that initial donation were a group of leather bound notebooks. That Whitman had carried with him everywhere he went at the time. They were being used by a writer for research on a forthcoming biography. It wasn't until late. Nineteen eighteen that the library finally came into possession of the twenty four personal notebooks librarians immediately went to work cataloging and preserving them for the next twenty years the collection served as a repository of information for historians scholars and Whitman biographers. It provided a window into Whitman's thoughts and experiences and gave researchers a glimpse of how he developed his poetic voice. Several books were published in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. That used the Harnett collection as a primary source including a two volume work on Whitman's uncollected poetry and prose but then in the nineteen forties. The unimaginable happened. Ten of the notebooks. Vanished coming up. We'll explore the disappearance of Whitman's notebooks.

"Northerners walked out of the convention. They became known as Barn. Burners. They were so fed up they met later and formed a new party. Called the Free Soil Party. Whitman supported the barn burners and joined the movement writing editorials to help spread their message. Though many anti-slavery advocates were members. The movement wasn't built on moral opposition to slavery instead. The party argued that slavery expansion to the West would be bad for the economy. Whitman didn't just ride at Orioles. He served as a delegate to the free soil. Party's convention that year in doing so. He helped nominate former president. Martin van Buren to run on. The party's ticket because of the Split Among the Democrats the WHIG party candidate Zachary. Taylor won the election but for Whitman. That wasn't the only bad news. The owner of the daily Eagle have thrown in his lot with the Democratic candidate. And he was angry. That Whitman had supported the barn as a result. Whitman lost his job but he didn't go quietly. According to one report a fight broke out in the newspaper. Office in Whitman kicked an unnamed prominent politician down a flight of stairs however this incident didn't hurt his job prospects for the next few years. Whitman continued to pen editorials in newspapers and even dabbled in carpentry and housebuilding. Despite being in his thirties he still lived at home with his parents and younger siblings. He wasn't married so had no reason to move out. During this time he continued to write daily musings in his notebooks as he grew older. Whitman's perspectives on slavery continued to grow more radical. At least by the standards of the time by the early eighteen fifties. Whitman had moved beyond any concerns about the economic problems slavery instead he had begun to embrace a firmer stance grounded in the moral problems in eighteen. Fifty there were rumblings that southern states threatening to secede from the Union but it was avoided when the US Congress passed a series of bills known as the compromise of eighteen fifty among other things it permitted slavery to expand too much of the new Western territory even more controversially it enacted a fugitive slave law that required northerners to assist slave owners in capturing runaways anti-slavery crusaders were outraged. Whitman published an editorial that year condemning prominent New England Senator Daniel Webster for voting for the bill he wrote from the House of Thi- friends comes the death stab dough phases crawlers lice of humanity. A dollar dear to them than Christ blessing the writing for newspapers would remain an important part of Whitman's life and work. He increasingly felt that he wanted to do something more meaningful more creative up through the early eighteen fifties. Most of Whitman's published works had been editorials novels or short stories but now he began to see a different path for himself one that would ultimately make him one of the most famous writers in America.

Back to the story by the early eighteen fifties won't Whitman had published numerous short stories and articles as well as two short novels but he wanted something more out of his writing career. He began to view poetry as his true calling. He'd been inspired by an eighteen. Forty four essay by the writer and philosopher. Ralph Waldo Emerson in that essay. Emerson complained that America had yet to produce a great poet who could embody the unique American spirit in his versus. He later wrote at the age of thirty one to thirty three. A desire that had been flitting through my previous life had steadily advanced to the front defined self and finally dominated everything else. Whitman believed he was up to Emerson's challenge. He began a series of loosely connected poems that he envisioned as a kind of American epic but producing. It was no easy matter. He later spoke of the difficulties he had in writing the poems feeling pressure from within to get the words out on paper he said there too personal to emotional launched from the fires of myself. I have dashed at the greater drama going on within myself and every human being many of the ideas he incorporated into his poetry had originated in the small leather journals. He carried with him everywhere he went when an ideal would strike him. He'd stop and write it down later. He'd go back and edit what he'd written crossing things out noting ideas in the margins and sometimes even ripping pages out entire in eighteen fifty five at the age of thirty six. He published his first collection of Poetry. Called leaves of grass. It was a slim volume containing just twelve poems and covering about ninety five pages. One of those poems song of myself took up almost half the buck. The collection was the culmination of many years of hard work. In the process he'd gone through countless notebooks. Working out his style and developing his own unique voice writing almost exclusively and free verse. His technique was groundbreaking during an era. When poetry was expected to ride for Whitman leaves of grass was more than just words on a page it was meant to be experienced and the setting was as important as the words for that reason. The size of the book was critical. He stated I have long teased my brain with visions of a handsome little book for the pocket that would tend to induce people to take me along with them and read me in the open air. The title was also important. Though on the surface it seems to be a reference to nature. It's actually ironic comment. Taken from publishing industry terminology. A leaf was a page in a buck and grass was jargon for writing. That wasn't worth much living up to the name. The first edition of the book didn't sell well. In fact Whitman ended up giving most of the copies away to friends but when he sent a copy to Ralph Waldo Emerson whose essay had helped inspire it. Emmerson stated I find it. The most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom America has yet contributed. I greet you at the beginning of a great career. Whitman was so delighted he not only decided to revise and expand the book. He included Emerson's glowing. Praise in the opening pages of the second edition published the following year in eighteen fifty six. It included an additional twenty.

Three years earlier the items had quickly been packed up and sent to a few secrets secure locations under fear of an attack on Washington. Dc The country had entered World War.

Living in caves as yet we got emails videos. And thank you Brian specifically and where from where the where the electricity you know. I'm a stickler for the power companies companies. I had a funny exchange. It is funny when you do shows the you sort of we're talking about Bright laughed whatever. Whatever the left shows right you can crack wise about your wife? Make jokes about this. The other when you go and like the Fox and friends stuff finish. Start making those kinds of jokes. They get very they pucker factors. It's it's at nine and I always just do that. I've been on I don't know what was that Fox show with the three checks or whatever and I'm just sitting there and I was like hey hypothetical who's had sex the least over the last ten years bill and Hillary Clinton or Oprah instead men. They'll look to me what we're trying to answer that it's like come on. Come on now come on. It's nine in twenty two of them No. I don't I never realized where I am.

Oh thanks for identifying her with a fiscal character. HOLD ON SUPER WHITE T. Yeah Oh end. Blonde hair yes. I couldn't figure out who that might be but now I now yes she really stands out she was like talking about this Peleton commercial. Shaw and I said listen. I got my wife hooked up to a stationary bike. which is attached to a generator? That powers A K greater and a big screen. TV TV. And I just sit there all day. And she's like well I I. Yeah I worked with Shapiro. Did the show together for years right and I would say something. Maybe you know that was like you know would otherwise offen- and he would say to me. I think he was right. He'd say women off the air he'd say you can get away with that because like you're a liberal and they believe like if you're a liberal in your which is by the way not true they believe your heart is so pure that you couldn't possibly seek to offend or wound the feelings of anyone. So you get that mal again. Well not a Mulligan. That's only one time. You just have like a lifetime pass to do anything offensive. Because if they look well you voted for you know an increase in the minimum wage inch. Say all the things you don't. I forgot Brian Ban worked together for a long time. I know it's Ben In yesterday actually. I hope he's well doing well. He's I like to hear him. Yeah Yeah I got Went right up the street. From Martha's to Ben's place sat in on his show or something promoting no safe-space cool and by the way doing well right. Yeah can I propose. Tell me if I'm wrong here. Brian Women Look at that point of view you can get away with that because you're liberal is like looking for racism everywhere like isn't it. You can get away with it because you're funny and people know they're coming for funny plays and if Ben Shapiro tried to make a joke. It wouldn't go over so well I guess right. I mean I'll reserve comment on on Ben's jokes but I'll say I'll say to you that I would like it to be that they think. Oh Yeah Whitman. You're funny and we know you're not that serious about it and I'd like that to be the reason I thought it was. I brought brought up to you guys simply because it was his feeling that he identified as ones liberal ones political philosophy In my case being liberal broke guy kind of exonerated me from any criticism on these hot issues to hammer looking for a nail. In my opinion now I agree. I think that that if you just took. Let's say you took a comedian. And he took like Tim Allen. WHO's like right leaning comedian? And you took like a Dave Chapelle or somebody who or Tiffany haddish or something or just a left died mike or something like that. I think Tim. AM Scott Watch it a little more. I don't think he can speak as freely and he would be hammered harder. I think that's true I used to I used to do live shows with Hannity the and we would go. We would go around the country and we will do Dallas and San Diego. We'd go to different places and the audience is Adam. Were Genome Brian. They were obviously a Louis listeners to his radio show and they were people who were more inclined to be conservative than than not and I would do a whole comedy segment I actually. She found that conservative audiences at least were more willing or more desirous of getting a laugh from someone than than maybe a liberal audience would now now at least. I don't know what it's like now. Now you have to kind of look around to see if it's okay to laugh which is sad Glenn Glenn Beck as well. Yeah I do you know everybody kind of you know a lot of work with Glen for many many years even before he was famous. I like to say what's your take on Hannity ready when you have a a a as a human being. I've never met him. Okay I have one free only. I've only told once publicly. And you ask me as a human being so so Folks may know Juna has some probably vivid mines emit recollections of some times that I was not fully present because I was addicted to all sorts of sleeping pills and antidepressants. And all of this. And I had known Sean for a long time back at. WABC in New York. I I talk show that I did was all night show from two to five in the morning which is so much fun in New York because that's like Denver at three in the afternoon. I think there's so many people awake and Sean Hannity they did eleven to two and so professionally. We knew each other that way. But you asked about personally and I want answers extra vest fair question because I want to know personally we became. I'm friends at that time. And the friendship has lasted to this moment. And when I was working with Gina Conway at at CBS. And you who am conway on our show. They said to me after one particular night of not sounding particularly president they said probably you shouldn't and comeback. Maybe last night was about it for you and actually that say to me. They said it to my girlfriend. I slept through my firing which which was actually the way it couch. I want to do it that way if you can. And so word within the even though this Adam within the industry word spread pretty quickly cleo women. They fired Whitman. Oh why they fire women doesn't he conway's great he does well with him. You know and then we got a real like he's like addicted to drugs and I said So that word spread quickly and my phone rang. And it was a middle of the day all tra- embellishing nothing and and it was Hannity and he said hey you know what's up and I said what's up I said I'm really not doing very well. And he said I heard he said I heard and I said So will you know I said I appreciate the call you know and I felt that in that moment that he was calling just so I can hear an old friendly voice and that even that that would have been wonderful if it stop right there there and he said to me he said we Brian. You really sick. I said I know and he said you need to Rehab. I'd been there for thirty. Today's and he said Brian. You need to go to a doctor to psychiatrist. You need to see him every day and I lived. I live in the San Fernando Valley and he said the doctors in Orange Orange County. which is you know is about ninety about the fifty miles away forty five miles bats ninety minutes depending on when you leave but it can be three hours depending on when you leave? So how did he says to me. You have to go and you have to go every day you have to go five days. A week is just as first name is George and he will see you. He deals with people really like like you specifically like you in terms of your disease in terms of what you're doing what you're abusing in terms of your job in terms of all of that and I said wow that would be great. He said Ah the guy to see him every day. It's twenty five grand and I said Oh I said all right I said I mean I was unemployed and I was just honest. Because he's my friend I said I'll see what I can do and and I will Try to throw together twenty-five brand I say that to try to sound cool but in the moment I'm going through my head like what bank is closest that I could rob Bob and Hannity says to me you don't have to do that. I've already paid him. Oh my God that's wonderful and and that moment I cried in that moment because that kindness generosity I expressed like that and manifest in that way and you ask me what he's like as a human being as a person that's the only story I could tell to answer that question because he's just really a very good person. I love him very much. Wow I it's it's weird. Make these these people into human beings. The inclination is to turn these folks into cartoon characters right. We didn't courage I would encourage you see the blur more nuanced Johnston that All right ready gene. And let me hit Castrol edge and then will Do a couple more stories here.

John's it retrievable broken would be that that that recipe for pizza as I'm not a fan but let me say this about the N.. Word if I may is to do it right. How quickly quickly? In such a short time things have changed a number of years ago. Adam and Gina. I'll say like maybe five years ago there was a story that In here in La okay. We talked about it on the air and the story was about the N.. Word and it came from the view as I recall and I said to the listeners on you know on a am talk show in that environment. I said Adam to the listeners about the N. word and the appropriateness of using this word and will they let the people on the show. Use The word I said so for just for a transparent discussion. The word will be said because the story is the word yes and I in the course of that conversation said that word and there was. There's no problem. Nobody Sat. There was not a complaint. Nothing from anybody a couple of years ago there was a similar story and just got the word. Oh we don't even do that story because we don't say that word ever and you'd be fired if you do and I understand I understand their sensitivity. What could come down on them from advertisers but in that Short short time? They've only several years. The standard changed so dramatically. It's all context. Everything is context like people argue over. Are you allowed to wrap along with snoop Dogg Song or Nwea. Sonic are. You allowed. Anya Wisconsin while you you are that you you are because there's a context to it because there is a major difference between using it and in a pejorative Jorda Way and then singing along with a black person you idolize and a paid seventy bucks to get a ticket for I. Don't we've now what we've done down with context if we've thrown context out the window when you throw context out the window then you throw everything out to win because it's all you have. I agree if you throw context out the window you cease to think because everything must be thought about and deliberated in the context in which it's heard said or considered right but also This notion of and I'm not surprised. You know the marriage went south because you take guy and he builds his business business up from the ground up and guys are very intertwined with their business now. Some guys that just are postman. Or arbitrator arbitrator man on the guys you just go in punched a clock and come home you know. They're they're janitor at a local high school. They're not their business business. Isn't there their personality. It isn't it doesn't it doesn't defining that but when a guy builds a business it defines him but especially guy. I like that it was being front of the camera. He's Papa John and whatever when that's gets ripped away from you it's not like getting fired from your janitor Gig it is your whole whole world comes apart and God God help the woman who's living with that guy who has nowhere to go. That's totally true. That's totally trapped. But something tells tells me he'll land on his feet because he is still worth an estimated five hundred million dollars but I understand he might be an identity crisis and I just want to show Kayla I think we have it The video that is just has gone so viral in the last few days of Papa John himself claiming how many pizzas. He's been eating feel thirty nine so negative and pessimistic about the company that I've sold a lot of stock. I've probably had over forty pizzas forty in the last thirty days. They don't make the peanut for the way I feel that this man play start it does not do anything all day. Is They have an appetite. Forty pizzas I'm still shocked by Anti. Yeah Anyway as I've always said Papa. John Phillips L.. Upset consensual sex with adult daughter. And we judge him much last than we judged a guy who was quoting Colonel Sanders and closed-door meeting right. Okay can we get our fucking priorities straightened out to that point. We just want lunch. I mean it's fast food. You know what I'm saying. It should take ten minutes of your day top. I agree I mean chick fillet chick-fil-a can open and the whatever airport in Texas and it's for the love of Christ woke assholes could we just leave the fuck at fast food out of it to. I've said this on the air. I said it to friends. I've said for years my activism ends where my my stomach begins swear to God that's true Not Chick-fil-a the owner. Maybe doesn't agree with some stuff I think or a business. XYZ There's a the difference if there's a good chicken sandwich for for Jay Leno maybe in there or a great pizza in there. You do your business you do your commerce and if we like it your service or product will buy it and to me. It's inherently un-american to decide that because someone disagrees with you on a political issue you you will try to strangle them financially. That is so far into me and I think is foreign to this nation. It's leading we're heading into this realm and it is it is the self esteem movement which is almost every subject when when I was nineteen or twenty ever every subject. It's if it's like a the one they don't want chick-fil-a open at the What airport Amarillo Camera? Somewhere in Texas now is in Texas. By whatever I remember that Ben Shapiro's going to UC Berkeley to speak. What do you think my the answer would be? I'm twenty what the fuck do I know. I don't have any thoughts on that. If Ben Shapiro wants to go speak and go speak and if they WANNA have a chip full eight the airport at the San Antonio Neo Airport. That's one then. They could advocate for like we have to do with.

It's really good. I think to avail yourself off to stuff. That isn't about you if it's not about me maybe it'd be kind of interesting for me to hear a little something about it. I am on the air. The lovable liberal right. I never say that because people might hate me. I know some of them do in fact so I'll let people who listen to decide if they like me or not but I am. You can call me a liberal role not a progressive. I don't use that term. I'm a liberal guy. I N if you can call yourself that word of the L. Liberal. There's a few boxes to check and one of them is free freedom of speech. And you have to check that box with a permanent marker and I don't know when it ever became in vogue for lack of a better term for self described liberals to try to stop to try to through protest store potentially violence by putting ones body in a certain area to halt the speech of someone simply because the words disagreeable to them that is not at all what liberalism to me has ever represented when you sign nine off at nine. The Guy who comes in and does the show after US after your show Dennis prager always says we and and I used to hear him. I say this three years ago and I've sort of like okay now. I really left in liberal. We need a definition and we need to have renewed to know. We're not the same thing. Yeah folks often they were all your liberal not left the left wants this shutdown. I don't think liberals want the speech. Shut down the left a great point because people all the time and we'll say oh but I got a buddy of mine. He said he's he's a doctor he because he said to me Brian he said he's very conservative. Dude actually he's a libertarian. Is really what he said to me. Brian he said I enjoy listening to you for a by the way you know this better than anyone because you're living breathing demonstration of it. What once political views Asia fought might be are secondary always to the entertainment value of the show? I think that's true and He said to me said. But you're you know you're a liberal. You're not a leftist and that was about eight years ago. It's the first time anyone articulated for me. This difference this perceived difference between the two whereas leftist is viewed. I know about my friends who are on the right as more dangerous. This is potentially more dangerous sometimes even physically a you look at Antifa and things like this and and liberal is perceived as okay Whitman's liberal is John Kennedy Kennedy. I'd say Bill Clinton Bobby Kennedy Liberal in the in the Walter Mondale Hubert Humphrey liberal in that in that kind of center. Elaine all right what else you got a story. That was the very very end of the story. First of all it's a separate point. I agree with you the instinct to release this audio either vindictively or whatever. That's a horrible instinct. Makes you horrible person. The thing you mentioned the very end of the story. I don't think a lot of people I didn't realize that you said it Owed them six million dollars unpaid services he pay. I didn't say owed. That's not the word just just to be specific please. She refused to pay them. A six million dollar fee for your hard. Yeah more details everyone I know my wife and advertising and pr and I hear all the time companies refusing to pay their bills or doing late on bill six months. There's no word no contact asking for more work. Pay Your fucking bills and this might not happen like this may have been more of a like quickness guy like I'm data makes head definitely has a context now like. Why would your own team Rach you out manic crisis manager are you firm would do that? Unless they're six million in the red is like this guy's not going to pay US factor in that whole shivered. I would say now I'd have to know more like eastern extortion elements. But I agree. This is why this now because it was bothering the whole time. That why I would your own person Rach you out possible answer. You're carrying a balance of six million and I think I'm I mean. I'm not a pushover over battle. I think the biggest set in the I if I needed new work done and my balance was six male. Don't know that I'm pretty audacious all that. I have to make the call to request. Like if you're you're gardner six million dollars and yet a dead tree in the back and you wanted him to come by. I take care of that tree. I'd have a tough time calling with the six million balance and that really is. You're you're drilling in on the reason I'd have have trouble calling the fact that he has done six million actor. Yeah it's a factor not all tribute contributing factor. He's on six million dollars. Workout paid him. None of it and I'm calling for Newark. Well let me let me keep going down this road. You have another Gardner Old Garner. He only oh him. Three point we five million dollars. Would you call him then instead or would you find a totally new gardener. I don't know I am asking questions. It's a fair question. I'm GonNa give you honest answer I call would call the lesser. Yes and just. I would probably call Nunu Brian Important Jordan. Quite fair question and getting an honest question. I'm going to be honest. I would call the gentlemen to whom I three point five million and I would say I have a tree that went down the backyard. I'm calling only to ask if you might remove the branches because I'll I'll I'll that I'll do 'cause I understand we. There's an issue here right right. Kicks off his point. Some work was done previously. And I unders- about this. I understand there might be a balanced and so I'm going to remove remove the trunk but I can't do that until you get rid of the brand now. What if he said it's eighty-six fifty to do the branches and then you got your checkbook cow and he said on top of the three point five whip? Well now. We're at loggerheads. I mean now. We're talking three million five hundred hundred eighty six dollars and fifty cents or you can just round up to us making one hundred dollars because sometimes the check you run out of room you ask fair and honest question in and I honestly want an answer i WanNa know ask that is I want to now at that point with an exorbitant fee of eighty six fifty for branch ranch removal. I would have to do what you originally suggestion called a new gardener because that is highway rows ridiculous okay. He should be he should be put in jail for charging a stupid question..

Farmers weren't interested in learning from the Whitman's and did not care about Christianity also maintained that since the Whitman's built the mission on their land there were obligated to give them goods but in the tribe members. Is Marcus arcus wasn't fulfilling his obligations aware of the Whitman missions struggles with Kai us and with money the American board of Commissioners for foreign missions and even ordered the mission to close in eighteen. Forty two though the board later rescinded its order. The mission soon became a place where immigrants on the Oregon trail. I'll stop to rest. Gather supplies and receive care and treatment. As more people moved West there was an influx of white immigrants in the area. The kai-shek were aware of the harmful effects. Arrival of white populations was having on native American tribes and other places they brought with them disease and in eighteen forty seven. An epidemic of measles killed half the people. The Kayak were hungry. Sick and unhappy with how Stingy Marquez was in his trading and Marcus was unable to keep the epidemic under control for the Kyw us even though he had been carrying for White and native American people who had been affected. They believe that Marcus as a doctor religious leader was essentially killing their families to make room for more white immigrants. This was not unprecedented. As native native Americans in the North West have been threatened with germ warfare and their beliefs about the power white. People had over. Medicine was exploited on November twenty-ninth eighteen forty seven a group of tribesmen attacked the Whitman mission which was sheltering dozens of people mostly immigrants. The killed killed thirteen people including Narciso and Marcus. They destroyed most of the buildings at the mission and held around fifty women until June captive for weeks thanks to children died and the other captives were ransomed historians agree that the keys were defending their tribe since the cayennes believed that Marcus was allowing measles to spread among them news of the massacre reached Washington.

"Do you feel close to Whitman or is he someone? Yeah. You have kinship with, but it's not like you thinking about him every day. I think definitely more the latter. I mean absolutely. He wouldn't poacher his first introduced to me, it was always hem, Emily Dickinson. We're kind of the touchstones of a poem can be. And what opponents sound like very much. Consider can ship with women in terms of the ecstatic and not being apologetic for finding on and wonderment in nature. I'm thinking of the second part of Songa myself, where he says something like. Let me see houses and rooms are full of perfumes the shelves credited with perfumes breed, the fragrance myself, and no it and like it the distillation would intoxicate me also. But I shall not let it that's indoors. But the minute he goes outdoors. He says the sniff of green leaves, and dry leaves of the shore, and the dark colored see rocks and of hay in the barn and the sound of the Bill should words of my voice lucid to the edges of the wind a few like kiss. I mean he just goes on a non embraces the play of shine and shade, the trees supple like. He was really one of the first people who is not. Apologizing for noticing he was not apologizing for taking the time to smell the roses to literally smell the roses and to scream about it, not just to say, oh, this is nice, but to scream on and say,.

"This is poetry off the shelf. I'm healing degroot today, Wittman and our warming world. When I read what Whitman who's born two hundred years ago, I feel old and tired compared to him. Just listen to these lines from leaves of grass smile, voluptuous school breath at earth, far, swooping, elbowed earth. Rich apple blossomed earth smile for your lover comes. Of course today as we face a future of climate collapse, and mass extinction loving the earth that much seems like a recipe for pain,.

"And I think you have a mix of both nature and nurture. Nurture was not good, is childhood was not good. His father was showed him that violence was the answer to everything. And the reason why his mother was living down the street and his father was on the other side of the country was because back home, the neighbors were calling the cops and saying someone's going to die. If you don't get here, he's going to kill her because his father was just beating the crap out of his mother. And so she moved across country and. And stayed with trials and his wife a bit, and then got her own place. And that's why she was there was escaping this domestic abuse this whole environment, but she walked into the arms of another devil to get to escape from one another one. Like you said you on some level, you'd think that Charles Whitman would want to protect his mother, especially after she gets out of this abusive situation. But again, I'm not psychologist, so I don't know, but the trauma that he could face as a child could have been to overwhelming for possibly for him to into your question. You know, do you choose this one child or d choose the seventeen victims? I would have preferred, Charles, just to go back and take it out on his father, the person that started this whole chain of events. So you have changed is that's what I would prefer. You just didn't give us if we could go back. Back into time. Yes, we're killing Charles Charles, could do it himself if he likes and with all the guns with his ten hands all at once and we could even shoot them from the tower. But. He said that his mom had lived a pathetic useless life just being beaten at the hands of this man. So he, I feel he killed his mom because it was a mercy killing. He was just like your your life is done. You haven't lived a life. You've just been a victim, so I'm going to end you and put you out of your misery. Yeah, I, I actually think that he killed his mother and his wife just in case he lived through this that he wanted to have to see how they reacted to him afterwards. Does that make sense? Like he wouldn't have to see the shame and there is because he's a mass murderer or the discuss that his wife would have for him for committed news crimes. I actually killed. You're right as especially his wife because he. No motivation to murder her. There's nothing there. There's no reason why. So, yeah. It's just brutal, but this is the, this is the case. This is the story. This is the shooting that I think started at all, and I don't really understand how this became a thing in America. Do think it's too. I don't think it's, I think it was him with the plan I disregard to. It might have had a factor in it, but I disregard the tumor myself. Why like the fact that you said that the tumor might be a rumor? The Tuma might be a Ruma and I think possibly so. And that would be to cover up the discharge, his involvement and the United States marines. But whether it's a tumor or not, this was a horrible tragedy and something that and the biggest mass shooting in history as of. Nineteen sixty six..

"Sure that somehow got from the top of the tower all the way to outside again that they could disappear think of that they could just blend right in. That's what the park land shooter guy did. He was able to walk away. The picked up until later. So after hearing the all clear people are out and they now have identified Charles Whitman and they're going to his home, or they're going to find his dead wife. Yeah, Kathleen and they're gonna find his murdered mother. Also, that's where they're going to find his and is, is it fair to say it's a suicide? Yeah. I would say it's a suicide note. Was it a homage? You go, you know. I call American mass shooters are version of a suicide bomber, but they are able to kill a lot more people because they can shoot at them as opposed to just trying to set themselves off in the middle of a crowd. But in this note, he mentions that he loved his wife. He mentioned that she was a wonderful person and that he had these horrible thoughts and that he hopes that they can do an autopsy on him and look at his brain and see if there was anything that caused him to do this, and they do that and they end up finding a small tumor. They say it's the size of a of a con or a p. con depending on where you're at. Two. But it's pushing up between thou, this is hypothetical miss, and if this is all you know about the story. Well, hey, this guy was happily married. Everything was great, and then he had homicidal thoughts. And he goes on his rampage and he has a tumor case closed, right? Yeah, it's it's, it's one of those things where it gives you an answer then also makes you on some level Phil bad for Charles Whitman like maybe he couldn't control himself. But I think there's evidence to point that may be this tumor could be a percentage of the cause, but not the call. I always have a scale of nature versus nurture when it comes to any mass shooter serial killer, whatever. And I always think there's a blend. I don't think it's always nurture or it's always nature. Always think it's a percentage of while we've had a lot of, you know, there's a lot of people. That struggle on fight every day that have cancerous tumors and they're not going around and shoot in individuals, but the brain works in mysterious ways. So you wonder if it just grows at a certain point, if this makes people more capable of this action. But I think of the DC snipers or the park land shooter or a lot of these other people, and it's not proven that they all had tumors. A lot of them are either radicalized or just do they have any idea of when this tumor started, they said it was pretty malignant and that it had there is disagreements about this tumor. A lot of disagreements, and some people say it's not even a tumor or they don't even believe it exists. So you're right when you said it's not a tumor on maybe the reason why, again, why would somebody claim. That there was a tumor when there wasn't well, we gotta go back to the idea that Whitman was an officer was a US marine, and that would explain away this crazy behavior, the psychotic behavior and also explain away. Why are the marines did nothing about it? Did nothing about this person..
