Rudy Giuliani Says the Best Thing Joe Biden Can Do Is Resign

"Now, What about Afghanistan tomorrow? Do you think that the president will make any reference to it? Or do you think he's just trying to ignore it? It seems to be is the message. Rudy, I think the best thing the president can do tomorrow. Is resign in disgrace. And apologize for killing 13 people. And say, Get me out of here before I kill more people because they don't know what the hell I'm doing. I'm very, very angry. Well, and I'm so angry for the families. I was 373 firefighters 27 police officers. I lost 20 good friends. To Al Qaeda sponsored by the people that are now in charge of Afghanistan. And the demented. President of the United States whose crimes I probably know better than anybody who they covered up. And they're trying to go after me nearly because I discovered the crimes he was committing for 30 years. The guy's pulled in about $30 million illegally. Selling his office first, his little cheap brother did it. Then his son did it. Then his sister in law, the whole family takes bribes Stand. And I got to believe he doesn't know what he's doing now. They put him in the White House and they can make more money. But they don't give the slightest bit of care for the United States. It's all about how much money can the Bidens bank and how can they abuse us? Look at him last night? It was like a petty little Banana Republic dictator last night. And he's going after people who don't wear masks and armed vaccinated and he's letting the Taliban With people who want to kill Americans take over Afghanistan.

Sebastian Gorka Believes Gen. Mark Milley Is a 'Dangerous Coward'

"It seems to be a recurring theme of late. The left's gasoline of america. Why here's the perfect example. For four years we were told that this man was a dictator. The donald trump wants to create some kind of banana republic and used the military to stay in power. What's the truth. Did he spy on journalists like obama did. Did he lock up. The sources for those journalists like obama did did he spy did he use the nsa and the cia and the fbi to s- avail the author parthiv presidential campaign. No that's what democrats do the now we have in contravention of what is meant to be the bedrock of our national security establishment which is civilian control of the military. This isn't argentina in the nineteen eighties. This isn't Fidel castro's cuba or franco's spain. The chief of the military isn't a man any uniform in america. The commander in chief ways no uniform. He's a civilian. The military has to take his orders but in contravention of that constitutional order. We have the most senior man in uniform never elected by anybody mark. Milley think that he gets to take the decisions thinking that he gets to obstruct and choose who other members of the cabinet should be. Fat is the definition of a banana republic. That is a threat to the security of all americans irrespective of who you voted for. Perspective of what your personal political proclivities are when a man who has no political legitimacy nanda who according to the national security act of nineteen forty seven according to the us constitution has zero command authority. None the of the junkies has zero command authority. The constitutional mandate the code is clear. He is an advisor on military issues to the incumbent. Commander in chief. Who happens to be the civilian president. Mark milley is a threat to the american republic. And he's clearly not a republican and he clearly does not believe in america. I he is a coward and he's a dangerous coward.

How to tell if clothing was made for a factory outlet

"So malls are in serious trouble. Lot life support others have already died. number of malls may be somewhere seven to ten percent of malls. Have a real future as a mall and you think abou- what malls have been about. They've been about brand name clothing and other brand name items. There used to be these things called department stores You might have to look and An online encyclopedia to know it. A department store is. I'm exaggerating but come on department. Stores are irrelevant now. So what do you do. If you're a brand name you feel like you have to go into business for yourself. And that's why there are these outlet centers on the edges of metro areas and interest areas. All over the country in so you go to these things. I'll be brand name. This brand name that brand name the other. But there's something that is a dirty little secret of shopping at these outlet centers and that is the merchandise at the outlet centers. Overwhelmingly even though it has the same brand name is not the same merchandise that would be sold in one of the few remaining malls or in one of the few remaining department stores or a non outlet outlet nine outlet center store of that brand and the the manufacturers typically will have a secret code on their clothing. Labels bid identifies for their employees. Or if you try to sell on one of the second hand sites Brand name goods or designer labels there's a labeling system that tells them that it was merchandised it was never top-drawer stuff that it was always specifically designed for a factory outlet center and the crazy coupon lady.

"I have to say what i think. Texas is one of the calling out the guard. And i'm wondering what are they expecting expecting to trump supporters to start writing. 'cause we certainly haven't seen that before right and you know one thing they're doing now is interfering with the poll-watchers who have a legal right to be there. Both parties is supposed to be able to have Poll washers and that to me is a big issue. Very first time. I was involved in a real campaign was in seventy six and at the End of the voting day. I was behind like one hundred hundred votes or something and then there was there was a recount and they recount in all of a sudden there. Were we were losing fifteen hundred votes and the most astounding thing was when they had when we were looking at the books of the sign in. There were some books that were signed with the same handwriting. You know how the voters supposed to sign and after it was all over and lost the election. I says you know. I think i've learned my lesson. Because i thought we did pretty good. I thought we had a good message. Raise a little bit of money. We knocked on doors. You know all all the things you do and we were probably really one won the election. And i said well i think If i ever do it again. I'm going to add one thing. I'm going to study the low on poll-watchers because there's law and this is this is what's what's going on. And of course the poll-watchers doesn't solve all the problems of the manipulation of social media. And in how the justice department of the fbi are biased in certain directions. So it's not not very easy. That's probably the you know these things that we're talking about probably the reason. There's a few libertarian. Suggest believe that you know. It's probably not worth it. You know to try to pretend. These elections mean anything especially the way they're deteriorating into the you know that they're not really reflective of very much one of the things that's interesting to think about is. What are these governors. Know that we don't know. Why are they calling out the guard. There are simply no instances of republican of trump backers. Going out and rioting. We know who was behind the riots. It was black lives matter. We know about chaz. We know about antifa. We know the kinds of people that were out breaking things and stealing things and beating people up. So why are they panicking. Are they do. They have some internal polls. That suggest that they're they're guy. Biden is not going to do as well as they think. It does make you wonder. But here's the other thing and let's look at this next clip because this struck my caught my attention today as well. This is interesting. This goes with a really the banana republic theme that we're seeing if we can put that next one on biden's plan to assert control. This first sentence says it all. If news organizations declare joe biden. the mathematical president elect. He plans to address the nation as its new leader. Even if president trump trump continues to fight in court really interesting he's not going to accept any challenges he's to say. Hey on president and look at this.

The Trump 'clown-iverse' continues

"Another crazy waken US politics. Remember this. Now back they sure you. In fact, let people know Senator I'm not going to answer the question. Because the question. Just as radical left would you out Mason who is on your list? Not. Surprisingly, the media responds to the debate especially Donald Trump's plan rudeness it was overwhelmingly hostile wasn't it? Couple of days later, trump was diagnosed with code. After mixed messages about health trump got in a car and run around waving to supporters. Then he was released from hospital he returned to the White House and he went on one of those twitter rants among other things. He told the American people not covid even though he's doctor has said, he may not entirely be out of the woods yet. So, what does all this main awake after the debate and only weeks before the US presidential election and what does it mean for America's image in the world? For answers. Let's turn to a leading. American Common Taito a conservative who says he's quite sick of living in what he calls Donald Trump's clown verse or drama drivers over believers or I can't believe these guys actually the president. Verse. Brad. Stevens is a columnist with the New York. Times, and formally with the Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize for opinion writing I should just warn you all that he comes to us via a scratchy on in Manhattan. Bread. Welcome back to the Shire. Back Be Sydney. Well, the rate is of the New York Times I can't wait to see the end of trump you yourself are prominent never trump you your New York Times columnist this week you say you was trump will give us just a few reasons why I wish a speedy recovery. I think to wish ill. To reduced to his level on that, of course, it's been. Core of the trump EST project which has been to based political norms and diminish moral standards. So why would I wanNA join trump along along that road a bit for more narrowly political reasons. I. Wish it well, because God forbid he were to die before the election, he would go down so to speak a undefeated. And what I hope is that a resounding electoral defeat in November and I'm speaking of the conservative. will put an end not only to the trump presidency, but she trumpism as a an ideological force. In American politics. Now. You rauch trump. The man needs to leave and lose because it's the only way the trump cult might die it unsubscribe to the cult trump obviously. Is that why you among that never trump was. Are exerting very little influence on the political right in America these days. You know I I hear that and. I was struck by the disconnect between my supposed- irrelevance and irrelevance might never trump fellow travelers. And the fact that the president. Describing us as human scum the conservative press keeps denouncing us if we're really quite so irrelevant, you think they want to go so much energy. Truth. Election that is probably going to turn on a small number of a relatively small number of voters in swing states, and so I think we're not quite so relevant have some people allege and stressed that never trump is include many prominent conservatives lock yourself William Kristol George Will Max Booed David. Brooks. David. From and Applebaum. Jennifer from there among others. But you see your critics would respond inside the Elat media consensus with there on the left or the never trump conservatives they've been consistently against trump wrought from that said. And Nights. I haven't you guys foul to understand what got America trump and indeed Britain brexit in the first place. You know. I'm not quite sure I agree with the analysis. Is and came about in part because there was unquestionably failure of the mainstream conservative establishment, which I guess I was park in recognizing some of the populous tides in American politics. I think it candidate for a much more specifically than which was a luxury crisis. In Europe, but went unchecked help create brexit brexit had knock on effects in the United States. As well, and and I would add a larger point com, which did you those who are listening here are left in any healthy democracy need a mortally healthy a conservative movement. There's no democracy that doesn't have a conservative side of politics. and. So even our adversaries are opponents politically should want us to succeed want a conservative movement that is optimistic that is inclusive that is in favor of growth, and that favors the open society and the free world. That's the way I can feel, okay my politics, they remained unchanged from the days before trump and hopefully will remain unchanged. Have said analysis requires us to listen attentively to individual voters tell us about your subject to Chris you right about her and you'll recent York Times call him. She's a registered Democrat and a trump voting lesbian store manager from Manhattan, and she fits none of the cultural demographic stereotypes of the trump by Brett tell us about Chris. Chris is a woman who is well educated. Well traveled and as you mention, she is She's gay and she the trump supporter and I one of the things that I I occasionally will be with my column in The New York Times. Is. Essentially. handed over not not fully. But at least partially handed over to Voice of that I think the predominantly liberal leadership of the Times. Need to could here because What she observed is that at least until the pandemic, her savings accounts or pension or private pension account for the United States a call four one ks. Arising smart. The economy was doing better in her view than it had been under Obama and that that's the counted for voters like her as opposed to you know questions about the president's mannerisms or read myths or his coarseness on the world stage and I wrote it Tom for the simple reason that Hillary Clinton would it become president? Her supporters hadn't been so convinced. That it was only a bunch of rednecks Yak. In the middle of the country, we're going to the trump. He is indeed and make the point. She's not an outlaw. She's a red voter in a blue state. My guest is Brit Stevens he's an award winning columnist with the New York Times. And we're talking about. Well, let's be frank. The crazy times in American politics. Let's turn to the debate bridge sixty years ago October nineteen sixty. The World Watch the Kenji Nixon debates we were too young. We went even. We weren't even born. To civilized will informed holly. Intelligent. Courteous Navy combat veterans are both in their forties. And yet six decades later. The world's being shocked and horrified. By the time of the first presidential debate these to all men engaging in A. An angry angry exchange is the best the both major parties can offer the American people sixty how's it come to these? You know when I was when my wife I ever watched, my wife has his permanent immigrants United States actually came a citizen. BECCA very. And I have to turn to her engine apologize for bringing her country because it was mortifying fortunately, the United States is a lot more than its leader. But debasement of politics has been long the making and it's one of many reasons why I just can't accept trump as president even though can time-to-time agreeing with his policies because he is he has brought the state about politics shoot a level that. Be chargeable to describe it as over Banana Republic and and you know onto. The Kennedy Nixon debates that I am are well enough to follow up one of the great issues that debate.

ByteDance Says It Won. Trump Says Not So Fast. TikTok Continues For Now.

"Okay, here's what I can tell you. You can still use tiktok as of this moment president trump since we last spoke said he approved Oracle's bid for the US. Operations of tiktok quote in concept, and so essentially the US delayed the planned tick tock band by about a week as Oracle Walmart looked to take a twenty percent stake in Tiktok globals planned pre IPO round as well as of course, the deals to host talks us user data and computer systems quoting Bloomberg I approve the deal and concept trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Fayetteville north. Carolina if they get. It done. That's great. If they don't, that's okay too and quote the new company which will be called tiktok global has agreed to funnel five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US and set up a new education fund which trump said would satisfy his demand that the government receive a payment from the deal quote they're going to be setting up a very large fund. He said that's their contribution that I've been asking for an quote Oracle plans to take a twelve point, five percent stake in the new tiktok level. While Walmart said, it has tentatively agreed to by seven point, five percent of the entity. Walmart's. Officer Doug Macmillan will serve on tiktok global's board of directors. The retailer said in a statement for of the five board seats will be filled by Americans according to the statement tic TACs. Owner Bite dance is seeking evaluation of sixty billion dollars for the APP, according to a person familiar with the matter Oracle and Walmart would pay a combined twelve billion dollars for their stakes. If they agreed to that asking price, the final valuation has not been set as the party's worked out the equity structure and measures data security. The person said terms are still in flux and the proposed valuation could still change and quote. Yet more about that flex in a second but more about that five billion dollar payment to the government. The president mentioned I. Guess That's the key money by another name that he was asking for all along except that seems to have come as news to at least most of the parties involved Oracle later confirmed it to a degree but quoting Dan primack on twitter. More about tiktok quote Payments Number One the Education Fund is not to fun trump's patriotic history project number two, the five billion dollar figure is not codified anywhere and no one expects it to be anywhere near that big number three, the five billion dollars to the Treasury is anticipated payroll taxes over an unspecified period. Of Time, there will be an education focused effort using tick tock short video format distribution tool, but there is no dollar amount tied to it with trump seeming to inflate the payroll tax figure with the Education Fund remember Tick Tock doesn't have five billion dollars at least not until its IPO wants to complete within twelve months and quote. So. Again has this all been Kabuki theatre make the president think he's getting his key money. Give a politically connected firm, a sweetheart deal, and even if the five billion dollars is really not going to be five billion dollars again, we have the president of the government forcing the investment of private property, giving it to favourite entity and essentially asking for a kickback exactly. What happens in Banana Republics Super? Oh and about that whole thing being inflex bite dance. This morning was asserting that it is maintaining majority ownership and control over tick tock global and will not transfer any source code or technology to Oracle or Walmart so essentially waving a flag saying they won. Quoting the Financial Times bite that set on money that it would maintain majority ownership and control of tiktok global contradicting statements by Donald trump oracle, and Walmart after it agreed a deal with the companies to continue operating in the US Oracle, the US technology group, and Walmart, the world's biggest bricks and mortar retailer said in a joint statement at the weekend that Tiktok level would be majority owned by American investors and quote however while they're state combined with the equity held by. Long standing US investors by dance might mean, American investors would be the biggest financial beneficiaries, direct majority ownership and control of the business is set to remain with the Chinese company in a statement released on January tat chow by dances Chinese social media platform. The company said tiktok global would be a quote one, hundred percent fully owned subsidiary. The company added that after raising funds ahead of a potential initial public offering, it would have an eighty percent stake in the company and quote. So maybe that wasn't a good thing to go spouting off about because this either means now the deal is really off. Because the Chinese side really doesn't want it or else the deal is off because the president isn't going to be pleased about that more in just one second or else everyone is just GonNa declare victory and. Meaningful has actually changed my money's on that but hard to tell at this point because to conclude. About thirty minutes ago. President trump. said, he would not approve a tick tock deal bite dance ceded control, and well I don't know.

Federal officers Trump sent to Portland teargassed protesters

"We've done a great job in Portland Portland was totally out of control and. They went in and I guess we have many people right now in jail and we very much quelled, and if it starts again, we'll quote it again very easily. It's not hard to do you know what you're doing? That was Donald Trump. On Monday today, a commentator Charlie Pierce wrote a major American city is being softly pinot shade in broad daylight, and if we know one thing, if this president and his administration get away with this, it will only get worse joining us now. Democratic Congressman Blumenauer. He Represents Oregon's third district much of which, or which includes much of Portland. Congressman blue our. Thank you for being with us. The governor of your state said that the. Doesn't solve any problems that escalates the situation and we've been watching police and federal forces and National Guard engage with protesters since May, twenty fifth across this country, and in the vast majority of cases, it has inflamed the situation as opposed to calmed it. Absolutely and that's the case here. Dramatic overreaction! The sort of the storm trooper tactics. Luckily, it is all on video. People can see for a fact that there isn't any large menacing crowd. Riot there's. An innocent relatively at looks like an innocent bystander who rolled a tear gas canister that was thrown his way shot by. Nonlethal weapon fractured his skull. This is outrageous and. Donald Trump knew what he was doing. Maybe he could be helpful, but I think it's a deliberate effort to make the situation worse. They've certainly managed to do that ear important. Donald Trump tweeted about this crossing state lines to incite violence as a federal crime Li- liberal governors and mayors much get must must get much tougher on the federal government is going to step in and do what has to be done, and that includes using the unlimited power of our military and many arrests. This works for some people in his base, but it. It's really not what most people think. The US military's for. Absolutely absolutely and in fact what we've seen here in Portland things have been challenging in the past. Things have been quieted down, but moving in here unlimited force. Things like taking bystanders with people who are not clearly identified of who they are not identified shoving them into unmarked cars and taking them away This is a banana republic. This is something that is not calculated to calm a difficult situation and we don't need it. Our governor, our mayor of the congressional delegation. Has. No interest in having this outside interference with people who are not trained in trying to help keep the peace and instead are inflaming the situation. I, you know the Charlie Pierce used the word Pinochet. and You bring up something that I think is important. You see these these officers I don't know what to call them, because we don't really know entirely who they are. They don't have badges. They don't have names. They could be from different federal. Organizations their cars. They're using unmarked vehicles. We just saw one there on the screen I. If this is a legitimate law enforcement effort, none of that would have to happen. Law Enforcement in this country are supposed to wear badges identify themselves have numbers. The cars say police or national guard or military on them. This is very unusual that it seems to be these the secret of tactics. Absolutely and if you're interested in keeping the peace and helping law enforcement, you would coordinate with the local police with the local authorities. They're not there at our. Invitation. Effort to work with us in a cooperative fashion and things that are recorded on video that people can see for themselves have no place in the streets of America's cities. What do we do about the accountability issue? One of the reasons police have badges that you can identify them. These are these people are mask. They have gas mask on in many cases there in full. Combat Gear You think there's an effort here to escape accountability. Absolutely I mean this is the the operating mode of the trump administration mating responsibility, maybe trying to deflect attention from things that are responsibility dealing with the pandemic crow virus. And instead. Of having an opportunity here for people intervening. In a way that is just it. It's scandalous. We're going to work to try and have legislation that help rain this. Limit.

A Banana Republic: Pelosi unloads on Trump over tear-gassing of protesters outside White House

"It's been a week and a day since four Minneapolis police officers were implicated in the death of George Floyd setting off protests around the world they have ranged from somber and reverent to violent and explosive last night as a seven PM curfew neared in Washington DC the National Guard and park police officers fired tear gas and set off a flash bang explosives to push out a peaceful crowd of demonstrators that had assembled in a park across from the White House this after president trump delivered remarks where he threatened to deploy the U. S. military if states and local governments are not able to put an end to any violence immediately given the gravity of the moment we've asked one of the leaders of a co equal branch of government the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi and she's with us now madam speaker thank you for joining us I'm sorry for the circumstances but thank you for coming nice marked in fortunate circumstances most unfortunate just when we thought we had seen it all of this president last night he crossed another threshold of undermining our democracy that the federal forces would be used to disperse a crowd be using Billy clubs and tear gas tank system the status of banana Republic to make way for the president to come out and to threaten and all along the point of the U. S. military I was gonna ask you about that because they're they're the fact is there has been violence in cities across the country do you feel that the president's threats to call out the military are warranted and if if not is there anything Congress can or should do I don't think the president calling out the military are warranted I think that there are by and large have been a peaceful demonstrations in large numbers across the country there have been some violence and there's no place for that in any of our expressions of concern that Americans people want to make and violence must be addressed but there is no reason for the U. S. military could be called out for this let's talk about the the role of Congress right now does Congress have any role in this if you find this unacceptable other members disagree that it's unacceptable is there any role in addressing it well there has to be and and I'm very proud of the work that our congressional black caucus has done over time this is a terrible thing that has happened but it's not the first time it's happened it's been a pattern so they're making determinations about what legislation will use to go forward whether that's a comprehensive bill or it's a series of bills but that will all be taking place in the very near future can you identify at the current moment though a perk priority for something that would work for example changing immunity laws for police or perhaps limiting funding or condition funding for federal departments and an effort to make some reforms can you identify any concrete change you are willing to embrace and push for at the moment of the immunity laws are very important and that would be a priority along with holding funding yes but there are things that are very common and people understand very clearly like racial profiling that has to stop on the use of force and in the manner in which it was use whatever form you want their different descriptions of it that our colleagues are revealing as to what will be the most effective and universal but let me just say that this is a four hundred year old which challenge more than that four hundred and one year old challenge before we let you go I can't help but remember that your brother Thomas your beloved brother whom unit lost not long ago it was mayor of Baltimore during in nineteen sixty eight rights is there something that you feel you learned from his experience that is guiding your feelings and thoughts now in terms of my brother Tommy and what happened at that time my brother was a big civil rights leader and one of the things that just discouraged him from continuing in politics with the disrespect that was shown by many and the community there too that are to cardinal who was a civil rights advocate and so to see at that time something that was new in our lives that we would see a church would disrespect the archbishop it was a really an awakening as to how deep some of this racism goes that's a speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi madam speaker thank you so much for speaking with us today thank you

"Pack in. So let's notes hot notes all right so first. Nancy wrote one of her patented bad ass letters to her colleagues this time about Kobe and trump mandy. You have those bullet points for us. Can you go through those? Yeah I can. It's it was a brutal letter blistering so anyway These six bullet points laid out in a letter which was titled Dear Colleague. We must insist and act on the truth in the current bios crisis and she says in order to move forward we must first understand the truth of what has put us in this position. The truth is that Donald trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan for and overcome a pandemic resulting in unnecessary deaths. An economic disaster. The truth is is that in January. Donald Trump was warned about this pandemic ignored. Those warnings took insufficient action and caused unnecessary death and disaster. The truth is that Donald Trump told his most loyal followers that the pandemic was a hoax a matter magically disappear thus endangering lives and paving the way for economic disaster. The truth is that we did not have proper available in March despite trump repeatedly claiming that we did and even now we do not have adequate tests masks. Pp and necessary equipment which creates more deaths unnecessary death and suffering? And the two more here. The truth is because of an incompetent reaction to this health crisis. The strong economy handed to donald trump is now a disaster causing suffering of countless Americans and endangering lives and the last one here is. The truth is a weak person. A poor leader takes no responsibility. A week blames others philosophy and there was wo- really drove. The knife in the last one was just unnecessary. I think shit read the last sentence again. The truth is a weak person. A poor leader takes no responsibility. A weak person blames others and then The last line after that is the truth is from this moment on Americans must ignore lies and start to listen to scientists and other respected professionals in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones and the goes on to basically say that the truth is is that American people want us to work together. Impasse bipartisan bills to address this. How she's Got Zero Fox left man zero fun I know. They haven't spoken in like six months. Or whatever because he 'cause she impeached him and he's all pouty about it. Wow that's that's a hell of a letter. Yeah really is. She's yeah she's going for the jugular with that. You agreed all right. So here's what I have For the rest of this block. First of all New York City added more than thirty seven hundred additional people who were presumed to have died of Kovic nineteen to their roles but never tested positive. The new figures released by the city's health department drove the number of deaths in New York City to over ten thousand and and increase the number of deaths in the US by seventeen percent. And now we're over. Twenty seven thousand. The new figures Until now only deaths where a person had tested positive were officially counted and today You Know California Washington Louisiana in Chicago. are also still only reporting deaths of those with a positive test so you while they're alive And today Cuomo issued an executive order that everyone in New York City. New York has to work cloth masks to go outside so he ordered an executive order to stay rate whenever you leave the house. When didn't do that a couple a couple of days ago right last week? Yeah I'd have to double check on that but it wh- I'm already doing it. I don't know if the orders place I know. There was a bit of a grace period if he did. I have to check but I don't know if we are now required to wear masks to go outdoors like required required. Cuomo said on his executive order that you've got a grace period and you. He hasn't decided if he's going to find our site. People give people citations for not but he said it's going to be a possibility. He didn't initially do that for people in parks and then started doing it. Because you know a couple people ruined it for everybody so I imagine if we continue to see a bunch of people out in in in these areas without wearing a cloth mask that people will start issuing citations. Yeah I I mean. I know that they are starting to issue citations now. An issue fines around San Diego County. Not For non mask-wearing but for being areas. You're not supposed to be and so I'm wondering if we'RE GONNA if we'll start seeing fines handed out on Massachu- people not following Mask guidelines. I certainly see a lot of folks. Not Wearing them here I live in a pretty busy street and there are tons of people who aren't them. I was walking the dog today. I had my mask on and here comes another guy walking down the street and he's got a mask it's just untied in hanging around his neck like he's going to have some barbecue ribs like it's a Bib. I'm like why isn't your mask up. Buddy maybe if I just started walking towards them real fast he'd put it on real quick. Oh here's a comes. When I first started wearing the mask I felt like it was a good like it was a good deterrent for folks. Staying away from me like I started wearing a mask before they ordered it to warn and at first people were like. Oh she's sick. I'm going to stay away from her. But then once the order was issue people stopped carrying and stopped giving me more leeway. I found interesting. Yeah like before. It was ordered on maths for everyone to have to do so. People thought I was like taking it really seriously because it must be sick or something but I was just trying to be responsible and now it's like I got my neighborhood and some people are wearing them other people aren't but people don't aren't giving a shit not staying six feet away from each other and not wearing masks. I'm like take the seriously people. Yeah I've kind of noticed that too. I think there's just different levels of people taking it at different levels of serious and You know thanks to us for taking it seriously. Yes yes and staying home from NBC. Indiana Congressman Trey Worth said of reopening the economy and risking American lives quote. It is policymakers decision to put on our big boy and big girl pants and say it is the lesser of two evils. He actually said that. Well of course medical experts including faucher saying ending the social distancing guidelines too soon would lead to a second wave and put us back at square one making everything we've done a total waste of fucking time and South Dakota's fucked thanks to their Republican governor Christie No One of five Republican governors who still refused to issue. Stay at home orders. Thanks to her dumb ass. South Dakota now is one of the largest corona viral outbreaks corona virus outbreaks in the US with three hundred plus cases at smithfield foods. The world's biggest pork processor. So good job fucking lady and business leaders are telling trump. He has to get more testing in place before he reopens the economy. These are business leaders. If trump doesn't listen to the doctors and scientists. I am hoping he listens to the members of his business council his own group rich white dudes has told him that the federal government not states needs to dramatically ramp up testing. This happened conference call with about three dozen bankers Financiers Food and beverage. Ceo's hospitality CEO's retail industry executives know mentioned to the my pillow guy having participated but but all his council of three dozen rich white dudes is saying. You gotta get more testing before you reopen the economy and these are people who are losing shitload of money on this and the CEO's are telling trump to ramp up testing as they're doing this politico is telling us. The number of tests analyzed each day by commercial labs in the US plummeted by more than thirty percent over the past week. One of the reasons could be the narrow testing criteria that the CDC under trump has put in place which I would bet my stimulus check is trump's way of keeping his numbers looking tremendous As it becomes blatantly obvious that his criminal negligence in a delayed and botched response is caused thousands of deaths. That's just my opinion and in related. Ceo Retail News Retail Spending. Dropped off a cliff following a record eight point seven percent last month. That is a singer. Single biggest drop by a mile in history since we've recorded it And that could be the reason for the nearly five hundred point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average today though. I'm not sure how they didn't see that coming did. And who the fuck of Mike and Kroger. This is kind of a good story. Kroger alongside the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union won a huge retail or food workers union are urging national on state officials to designate grocery employees as extended first responders or emergency personnel and. The goal of doing that is for grocery workers to get a higher priority for Kovic nineteen testing because thirty have died that we know about and accessed in in the union and also access to safety gear like mask and gloves and other protections that they don't have access to because they aren't considered first responders or extended first responders. So that's good news to me. Yeah that is good news. There are a lot of companies stepping up. There are a lot of companies not stepping up to the ones who are. Yeah I like that. This is a union but it's also kroger's with his teaming up with the Union to make this happen so go kroger. I hope you're also paying paying them hazard. Pay or working on getting them hazard pay. I I've been seeing a lot of things Floating on social media to the effect of like when I'm job hunting in the future. I'M GONNA ask them how they handled the pandemic and I'm going to ask them what protections they about to their workers and what they're paid sick leave was like this really like defining moment. I think you if if we can afford to ask those questions. We all might be so desperate for jobs. You know this is the I've I've been. I've been terrified that this is going to be like a way to lower. Minimum wages is going to be a way to force us to beg for Jobs Shit jobs for ship pay after this. I hope that that's not what happens but again. That's just an opinion. I have got no evidence of that but that is certainly one outcome. Could be yeah. I'm just really mad at rich people right now. So Yep all right. We'll be right back with more news including unethical. Richard Burr problems with. Va trump pushing his miracle. Reelection drug on veterans and servicemembers delays in the stimulus payments and another clear violation of the impoundment control access. Stick.

"Hey, I gave out some fake news the world go. I just realized when I talked about the courts are going to rule a sitting president can be indicted. I gave out some fake news. Madam. That's my bad. The courts are going to rule this sitting president. And then later they're going to they're going to rule a president that they like cannot be indicted and then later when a president who's not one of theirs is an office. There. Yes. Yeah. This has been a Republican we've allowed the courts due to this. This is this is as an absolve Trump of anything that's alleged in any of those pleadings. And I urge you to read them for yourself because you're left with one of two very disturbing conclusions. Neither one of them's comforting that either. A Trump was duped by a Griffin and craven opportunist con man that allowed into his inner circle to essentially have huge influence over his own private affairs or be he knew that. And that's exactly why them talking about the Coen sentencing. There's really no other choices there. And since these are the things he's guilty of by his own admission, then you know, this. But but again, there's just like there was with cavenaugh. We we we assume if you're watching and listening to us on a regular basis you can walk and chew gum at the same time. So we were vehemently defending cavenaugh against these charges. Not because we thought he was a good judge because he's not and he won't be in already today. You're learning that because there was a higher principle at stake. Right. So. Trump could very well be guilty of everything that he is being accused of doesn't change the fact that the courts are create have created a banana Republic, and that's why one of the main themes of my new book truth bombs is that Trump is neither the the solution nor the cause of our problems. His emergence has his his arising is symptomatic of it. People turn to strong man, when they saw the courts just undoing election results and disenfranchising them turn to a strong, man. And that's really why the system hates Trump is because they hate shoe. That's that's really why. So I needed to come clean about some fake news there, particularly because I want to talk about some real news right now. And that is. I found a way to finally get Noah. Because he's my son. He has like an allergic reaction to eating vegetables. I've finally found a way to get into eat his vegetables, and it's by drinking them pumpkin spice. No, well, I don't know. I don't know if brickhouse nutrition next fall, we'll come out with field of grains, pumpkin spice edition, wouldn't that? Be cool. No to feel the greens pumpkin spice all things. Yes. Pumpkin spice, all the things. Yes. My only regret is that can spice goes away. This after this time of year, right? But field of greens. I drink it everyday myself as well.

don't support the kitschy socks thing like you're better than that I don't unless unless they're a sponsor then I'm cool I don't usually do it but I've been on the road well days and they were just there so there you go I was in my local corner store the other day which is very serious iskoe and there was a woman wearing at two dope Queens t shirt I didn't realize that merge too and she was talking to the woman behind the counter and said who are the two well what does that shirt she said they're great podcasts they're going to be on tonight as I quite as I doubt my head in waited my turn the line we saw them briefly as we walked off stage and we get to introduce ourselves and talk for like five seconds but I wanted to chat more awesome love that pilots I watched part of the show to their great great all right Dan so president trump delivered his first state of the Union address last night Hour twenty minute speech that offered almost no new policy at all because America has already been made great again apparently what did you think what are your first thoughts dan well a couple things one trump needs an editor yes go the words also the weird thing though I I looked for a word count and someone's that has fifty three hundred words fifty three hundred words is around the word count for a lot out of the Obama state of the Union's but trump's speech was very closely linked to the longest of the univer which is Bill Clinton's which was almost nine thousand words so his delivery it was so unbelievably slow and low energy that he turned what could have been a much shorter speech into one of the nearly longest speeches in history could tell you one thing that is not the reason for that it's not like he had so many police elaborate words that he his words were longer a very low energy he had the real jeb thing going with the low energy delivery they're boring that's my take boring so boring and poorly written and there are a lot of convention like White House Presidential Conventions that I have nuns myself to seeing donald trump to get on Air Force One or a pool spray in the oval or doing a press convoy nevermind isn't do press conferences but if he were used to that but Shing him walk down that I'll to be announced as the president's state of the state of the union that's a real gut punch and then when he finally glad hands all the white nationalist in the Republican House on the way in and then he gets to be greeted by Paul Ryan with the smug most shit eating grin on his face that there's probably better for my blood pressure and Paul Ryan is he's overseeing a all out assault against the Justice Department FBI which we'll talk about later knows talk about the writing I because that's the you know who cares about that and then we'll get to the substance but just a note on the writing like cliches are very hard hard to avoid in speechwriting they are very they're even harder to avoid in the state of the Union the State of the Union is at best you know a laundry list of does that you try to string together and some coherent speech with some coherent theme and as a result it's not like you're making it's not like you're writing an argument or an inspirational speech it's it's really workmanlike and so it's really hard to write a state of the union it's like with almost every speechwriters least favorites beached work on that said there were so many more cliches and just like hackneyed trite language in this speech then I can remember for in and I won't even use our speeches and example Bush's speeches Clinton speeches I mean this is like stuff that would make democratic and Republican speechwriter this cringe here's this here's a sample of the lines that really did it for me if you work hard if you believe in yourself if you believe in America then you can dream anything you can be anything and together we can achieve anything we share the same home the same heart the same destiny and the same great American flag together we are rediscovering the American way what the fuck that was that was all what couple of sentences all right in a row what the hell was that I mean do you think he likes to try to put words on the paper and just forgot to delete some of them I mean they have the it's called the new American moment which is a phrase you know that that Hillary we had used and it's like everyone's like oh plagiarism on Mike well it sucked when she used it to it's a shitty phrase it's not plagiarism because they cheered to dumbed google it what it is I mean we can't talk because we once used the term winning the future without fully comprehending the fact that abbreviated W T F I know well that's the other thing now that I am a few years out from having been a speechwriter you also realize that like ah people need to think of these speeches in a different way you know like you really need to break away from the usual language that so many other presidents and politicians use like it's so important do that especially this day and age when you know authenticity is key and people don't WanNa hear can bullshit and you know it's funny like if there's one person who might be able to do something like that it's donald trump and instead he just like sat there and read this fairly boring speech and it's you know it's not like I wanted to hear him Taki does on twitter because that's fucking scary as hell but it just it was a real snooze you know that's a good point because would I worked in either in the White House or in and outside capacity on all of Obama's and even we were just like looking at code these remarks in the last few years trying to be helpful and every year particularly when I was in the White House you to go to that first meeting with the president be like we're going to do differently this year yes less policy not a laundry list go for forty minutes we know like that's the meeting in November and we never came close to achieving it a couple of years there we actually said and I was suggesting this last night on twitter it would be amazing if some future president liberates all of us by I giving a twenty minute speech on a single topic that they care about they wanna make a persuasive argument about two however tens of millions of people are watching the the state of the union I think there will be probably more useful and effective and impactful then just taking off various policies and like telling fifteen stories about people about this I mean we get in trouble one year because in the foreign policy section we mentioned every continent except South America and there was a big problem that we didn't mention the America somewhere in the speech and all the South America people got upset that's the kind of pressure you're under the state of the Union is you get everyone from every corner of the government saying like no you didn't include this include ah so it's always a mess they should they should retire it so dan what did you think were the political goals of the speech normally and I let you guys a good job of laying this out on Monday but the normal goal of the state of the Union and one year I ran the Korte stadium policy process and the goal is to really set the agenda for the year for into as one to tell the congress in more importantly the public this is what we this is what I want to do is a organizing principle within the government right and so all the agencies they everyone wants as you point out everyone wants their thing mentioned say the union so you all the agencies go home with your best policy ideas in Brigham to us and then decide which ones we'll make it and some of them ended up being very clever great things for the speech many of them up on the cutting room floor even if they are great policy that will go on and change the country in some way just it's not speech worthy and trump did not do that I have no idea what he wants to do in two thousand eighteen and that is because the head fake he has no idea what he wants to do in two thousand eighteen he has not thought about that they can't they don't think beyond the next airing a Fox and friends I think that was one of the most under Harvard aspects of the speech in the media the fact that I mean I could not imagine and I'm sure you can either if we were heading into the state of the Union and the policy folks didn't give us new policy for Barack Obama to announce in the state of the union because reporters back in our day used to be like what there's nothing new in the speech what do you give it for like they would just be hungry for whatever the new announcements new policies are and he didn't have any of that and they didn't try to do it any of that and that's like an I noticed some of the stories today about where they went into living rooms of various people to ask them what they thought of the speech you know and summertime supporters some weren't but even the people who sort of like trump one of the biggest reaction when the most common reactions from some of these people were well he might have had some nothing good about the opioid crisis there was no plan or he might have said something about veterans but I didn't hear offer any plan and I actually think that even if people found the speech challenge right that's right like after in the twenty thirteen state of the Union which was the last one you worked on I believe from the White House that was right after it was reacting to that news we at times were staring down the barrel of government shutdowns budget fights debt ceilings and use a state of the union to set the stakes for those fights because audience right and then the other the other thing you would do is you would try to sell your accomplishments the economy's getting better here's what here ignore what you've heard on Fox News obamacare is working and here are the five ways that's working trump did try to do two of those things one he tried to sell the tax cut in the context of a.
