Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?

All In with Chris Hayes

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?

"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.

Cam said they may have went to the where one soon times with that play but that's the play that they executed. Well. Over the last two weeks and I think he scored a touchdown early on a similar plate and even ahead of play action off of that place. So. Bet Play is a play that they can use any. Situation would be third down. Razov and has been effective. I honestly don't think it should it came down to that play.

Probably should've never came down to that wind play particularly, but I think cam play well play winning football. They play football on both sides and I was very impressed highly impressed but off this play will spend more plays for the doing pages in Kansas and let's really comfortable. Running a system and they're going to be a tough team to beat. Not Soon Change. They're going to beat the New England patriots. Team planning the postseason easily but at the same time.

First Amendment rights we chat is a popular messaging focused app. It's popular with Chinese speaking Americans. It also serves as a lifeline really to friends. Family customers in business contacts in China. The US move attempt anyone a part of the Trump Administration's plan TTO punish Chinese owned companies. Sena's national security threats of the U. S, of course, also forcing the sale of TIC tac toe. What now appears to be Oracle and Wal Mart. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the Fox business Network. Can you explain how this is not a national security risk Secretary because bite dance the Chinese company still going on 80% of this tic tac global, and we know that if the Chinese company the Chinese Communist Party wants that data of American citizens, they're going to get it given the civil military fusion laws in China. So how is this not a risk? Him or that you've nailed the right point. With respect to reach at Tic Tac and all other Chinese telecommunications companies have been working on a wild way for years. Now the single rule is this. We know one American data in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party for the exact reasons you describe. It will end up in the hands of their MSs, their security apparatus, their military There's civil military fusion program so that that's the real president Trump laid down. As with the transaction around Tic tac, Um I've seen the outlines of what the president now has said he is conditionally. Okay with what they're doing. Eat this deal. If approved in the end, if ultimately approved, will ensure that no Americans data has any access to anyone in China that has any capacity to move this to a place. We don't want it. We will ensure that that firewall Israel that the protectionist serious that the data resides in places that are connected to the Chinese information system, whether there's still some Chinese ownership, will they still a collective world to check from the benefits of the business?

The confusing world of potting mix ingredients

"There is a huge and confusing world of blunt potting mixes out there. You've ever stood in the garden center. bags and not quite sure what to buy. Then I'm here to help and I've elicit another expert to odd that up on the matter my guest this week missed a house plot. Ak Vlada Nicholas Cage is a house plant care specialist from Washington, D. C. With a huge following on Instagram, and he also makes them pretty awesome tiktok videos to I. I came across him via a wonderful Tiktok where he was doing a matchup between computer games and House Plant Care, which is absolutely brilliant. Open link to that in the show notes because we're GONNA be doing some decoding of posing mixes I'm working out exactly what you need I. Guess. The first question is, do you need to make your own bespoke potting mixes from individual ingredients or can I buy something off the shelf? Here's missed the house plans thoughts on the matter. There are two general types of wanting me sold out there. You have mixed plants for succulents and CACTI. We'd succulent Yes. The lot of them are good in you could use straight out of the bag. However with tropical makes in most cases for most Hobby House from growers. This use some extra of the bag. The main reason is most of these commercial makes or not or. Yes. It's all about the holes. POROSITY is really important concept to grasp when it comes to choosing your house plant potting mixes and the truth is that not all hose grated equal in soil water narrow held in for spacey's in between particles in these horse can be different sizes. We can generally classify his micro pores or lower floors in microprocessors smokers. These breweries they're often leads it to the naked eye while Mike reports are not in my reporters important for who who'd area because they hold oxygen. Whereas Mike reporters are important for absorbing holding water so It's important to maintain both adequate. In water supply for all planned growth in a city to have both micro in. In the soil. In when they say the most policies aren't enough. They don't have a lot of these reports. They don't provide a lot of Austin for the roads. In order to have a good solid structure, it has both micro might reports you need a goods ratio of small medium, large particles in particles of different sizes. Probably most commercial mixes the problem is a they contained mostly Moss, which consists of very fine particles. So you'd have only only fine particles the slow only pretend micro voice, which means it will retain water. You won't have a lot of oxygen into also compact very easily. If you've listened tonight sustainability episodes, then hopefully, you'll have some awareness of the sustainability issues that are surround Pete and its use in house plan compost. But it remains the fact that many many production nurseries still supply their house plants in potting mixes that contain an extremely high level of Pete. So how come those nurseries can grow plants the look amazingly lush and well but when we get those plants into our homes with and don't change the potting mix they start to struggle well, fortunately Vlad's on hand to explain that as well when a plant is getting locked to light it photosynthesis more and as a result three, pulling more water from the soil. What this means, the roots will not be sitting in west, salt for a long time. So the chances overthrow brought will be low. And this is why plant nurseries can grow in these next. Nurseries provide huge amounts of light. They have ruled stay have walls made out of glass. Fifty Times more than the plants in our homes. So nurseries actually need party makes they retain a lot of water which is why they can use these leaks. Straight out of the bag, but the problem with growers is bid. We don't have this salon life in our homes and. Most people even if they do have a lot of wife. Did Not provide to their clans is deeply usually choose plan place from based on that where to look good noth- according to how much light is to get in a plant doesn't get a good amount of lights it will synthesize less and. Pulling less water from the soil meaning, they will be sitting sweat soil longer and increase. Should you be changing the soil on your new house plants? The me get them home from the nursery. This is a subject of enormous debate in various house plant forums. But here's Vlad take plants in nurseries. They usually go through periods of very. Intense growth and the soil that the coming could be. Deficient imaging by the time you get them. So if plans is Lutheran deficiency, of course when giving new so soon as you can continue developing well, also there is accumulation of salts in the soil over time, they will burn the roads. So the longer you leave a plan inside soil more damaging will have on the roads. So If a plant needs to be deported usually. Again.

Who Does the Cooking for Cooking Shows?

"A smartly dressed woman sunlit kitchen gushes about her love of ricotta cheese as she blithely scoops ingredients including the cheese into a skillet warming on the stove she ticks through the dishes. She'll prepare today right before your Eyes Warm Rubella Salad with Walnuts Baked Ziti with butternut squash and desert a simple yet decadent twelve crisp layered with raspberry compote and Marse. Capone. Her thirty minute cooking show is one of your favorites and for a moment you consider recreating this exact meal at home. But Mike most things made for TV. The delectable spread has a secret ingredient. You probably don't have on hand dozens of behind the scene hands that crap and stir proverbial pot. Traditionally all the cooking shows you'll see on TV begin with onsite chefs who prep food in advance sometimes as many as twenty people will chop whisk and season ingredients in a full service kitchen before a cooking show is recorded. The Food Network Kitchen. For example, has included five separate kitchens that each has stove oven sink and refrigerator. That way chefs can prepare food for several cooking shows in advance. These prep kitchens as well as the made for TV, kitchens on some cooking shows require fully stocked pantries to. A for example, competition cooking shows alike, my personal favorite iron chef may require pantries with hundreds of items for each participant. Iron Chef America stocked two hundred fifty items per chef including nine types of flour seven vinegars and five kinds of salt as well as thirty types of herbs and spices. Along with having the right ingredients on hand chefs, an off camera kitchens prepare swap outs which are dishes at various stages of completion. The can be used during a cooking show the next time you watch an instructional cooking show. Note the carefully orchestrated actions in specific segments, introduction preparation of ingredients, stove, top cooking seasoning, adding extra ingredients to the dish and plating. Dealing any of these segments you're likely to see the work of people in an off camera kitchen. Of course, even with all this help, it doesn't necessarily mean that the host of a cooking show has it easy. Especially, if they're recording with a live audience, the host still needs to cook and speak to the audience often while producer communicates by phone and Studio Director gives silent instructions from the floor. Cooking competition shows can be a challenge for the contestants to although perhaps not in the same way. Take Food Network's chopped. For example, a contestant on this show are tasked with creating edible dishes from a basket of mystery ingredients, and it can take up to twelve hours to film a single episode. Often. Contestants aren't even cooking. They're being asked the same on-camera questions again or waiting for the judge's decisions. Whatever the format instructional competition or a hybrid of both understanding the way a cooking show works has a lot to do with uncovering what's going on behind the scenes. There's simply some things you can't fully understand by watching the end result.

I'd I'd talk about it in my book the first time my earliest childhood memory is jumping on his back because he broke my mother's arm over his knee. How old were you at that point? Five so incredibly abusive Father When you were in New Jersey in Canada going through all this what to what was the family dynamic like otherwise me was was there any normalcy to it or was it We thought it was.

That's awesome so he was in the teens for about twelve years. Yeah If you could go on back to just kind of family dynamic if you will look like. It was very chaotic but structured He would go off line. Just beat on us for like silly stupid reasons. We assume that was all normal. What what what Kinda reason. What would set them off there? There was a week where he told us. I know you're going to mess up. So he actually woke up and beat us every day before he went to work. We DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. He's schizophrenic.

He's the older brother and and he watches the younger brother and he gets involved. Were there were there elements of that? Were you'd try to protect your younger brother. Was you just beat the shit out of both here? I did try to protect them. I felt like I was his favorite so I didn't get as bad. I don't know that was the case but it was.

Packet the A unit devote Toria packets Bush operations nations commanded and we had all of the options my option for me specifically was the Bilad option which is bilateral operations meaning using a Libyan face to to kill or capture. The bad guys responsible where they're facilitating it. We had a unilateral option. We even had a kinetic options. We had all the options to bear and we dropped in front of the chief of mission. Who is the ambassador at the time? It was a Shar Jay Alexander Pope. I'll call that fucker out anytime of the day. We'll see from so I don't even know he was after Stevens was killed. who was loved in that country? They appointed him as the temporary charge. A which was a short period of time but he was there as the shark J and basically said Hey. The political climate won't allow us to do anything about this and we're like Remember specifically a very very good due to from the organization from Special Mission Unit Standing up and saying saying so you're telling me you're fucking ambassador was just killed. Four Americans were just lost. We have the path to kill or capture. Them you're are not willing to fucking do it. Then he was irate like he should have been When that happened it was a constant struggle and then the last straw for me was partly? I was getting recruited for the agency. At that time I had finished my college degree so I had a opportunity to do something else also on active duty. I didn't want to be sergeant major because I want to fucking staff typically. That's a route for us. And I'll tell you at the higher echelons Special Forces Command specifically sergeant majors. I don't know the fuck happened to him. They lost their ball. Sack along the way But they get shit on my officers officers mental have any command and control opportunities within the organizations that they run and I was like I don't want to be a SAR. Major became SAR major later in nineteenth group under different circumstances but Algeria the Marlboro man was a an emphasis impotent infamous famously can I say alowed known as because he was a head of a terrorist organization that was bothering for cigarettes in the the transfer Hell area which was the area that we're operating in he took an oil refiner hostage Geria- and this is what I'm saying unclassified because it's open source my guys and a Joint Task Force were prepared to do conductor costs rescue because we had Texans they're Americans that were there we loaded out or fucking toyotas or landcruisers. We're prepared my guys. Were dressed like we were ready to conduct an operation. They went loss to do it. A joint taskforce shut us down. So what the fuck with these guys. They got killed. No Shit. The Texans got killed. It made like fucking thirty second plug on sixty minutes and in a couple of news stories. Picked it up. That's you know what the company there with I. Don't it was a significant oil company and east southeast Algeria on the border of Libya. I mean we were thirty kilometers away. We had planned multiple courses of action to do it so she was poked. Shut that now. No it was is actually a Special Operations Command Africa and this is. What is your enemy at the time is I'm a team sergeant? My job is operating as the representative for the crisis response in the continent of Africa as a team. Lead for the commander's in extremis force the dude that I was working for walls Fargo employee. Didn't even know what the fuck was. He didn't even know what crisis contingency was. I picked up the phone and I call it soccer AFS Special Operations Command Africa. Thought it was sock. DOC is fuck. Yeah Yeah it is. So I'll pick a pick up the phone and call and their staff duty answers I said. Hey what the fuck. Let me talk to somebody money from J. Three and he's like who is this. It's the team lead for fucking Libya. Let me talk. Somebody J. Three. Oh sergeant there's nobody from J. Three here it's ten o'clock at tonight and there's a fucking hostage like I just I just heard it through the BBC. What the fuck you talking about? Oh nobody's here in at night. What this is an active combatant command special operations and there's no fucking body monitoring now supposedly? It's changed since then. But what are you talking the ball like let me talk to somebody in S. two J three J two. There's nobody but a fucking dude playing playstation on staff duty. So I went to the command. Went to Jason. We gotta fucking spend something so we started planning. We started working on the crisis. Contingency like good special operations guys and long story short. You're nothing happened. We we decided not to do anything about it. Algeria launched a botched hostage rescue killed a whole bunch of hostages including Americans. When I came back I basically told much commanded? Go fuck themselves. I reported this lieutenant colonel. Because he was getting drunk while my guys route operating in training in the middle of the night nothing was done about it The political climate would allow for pieces of shit be taken off the battlefield. who were who were shit bags and compromising my security mom insecurity? I didn't even have the I came back and got put in for Meritorious Service Medal which is just kind of standard standard operating procedure for e eight who spent his whole life in the military they got downgraded my word to fucking Arkham arm accommodation. I got an army accommodation. Wants for getting a three hundred on a PT test. A physical trainer. I put one of my eighteen. Delta's who is a staff sergeant who was deployed with me and for an award for going to Benghazi for an operation and he got an arm in arm accommodation award. So you know I love the regiment but fuck that chain command. Fuck that company commander. Who is one of the biggest piece of Shits R. Word with And and I don't say that lightly because I want to support ground fighters ain't ground force. Commanders who are doing their fucking job but all the way up the chain. I could read it. Fuck and a ten series netflix special on fucking documentary entry on how fucked up. The process was so I decided to get out and work for the agency instead and then realized there fucked up. There just realized I stopped Jason Rainbow at some point in what was the time period from when the you guys were made aware earlier. That hostage situation on the with the oil workers like when when you found out about it versus when they were killed and it was denied. Was that a few days several days of them. Yeah a few agonizing days. It's the first. It's the first time in my military career That I A had a breakdown in military composure. Where I went in on this lieutenant colonel in the skiff which is just a special compartmentalize secret kind of room and flipped a table and fucking went off on them and relentless playstation? Yeah yeah remember I mean the do is probably drunk when Roseana. That's why he didn't kick me off the continent but Did you fuck them up. I didn't I made threats and I said listen man. I don't know what the fuck you're doing here. I don't know what we're doing here. But we need to pull your head out of your ass and I was trying to be tactful and then I just fucking lost it and one of the team leads a good dude by the name of Craig. It goes my team leader on my detachment I was operations in the other. Teams are kind of put his hand on my shoulder and said calm down like it's okay and I walked out my guys were downstairs watching. TV and they looked at me. Like just beat Mommy and from there I let Craig takeover and I ripped out out three weeks later two weeks later after hitting the Granite Carson. I was out in the military. I drop paperwork. They said. Are you drop paper and I was like. I'm fucking out. Fuck you guys I dropped opted. People didn't even know that I was dropped work. And before you knew it before my company even came back from Germany where we pre staged hours oriented Ari. How did that impact the unit that you stood up? Then I mean was that a kind of a backfill struggle for them or did they. Were they able to kind of recuperate with so I was already so so on a typical master sergeant. NSF is restricted. Thomas team time. They had a meeting. I only have two years of a maximum awesome of two years. A special forces team sergeant time so you were there already planning on your departure and I had already done two years. I was over two years so if I mean do they told me you. You could be a team sergeant for the rest of your career out. Never let that team. Yeah so my time was already up. They had already planned to have a backfill to put in the position for team. Sergeant And you know just like we all big were were entitled to significant it were fucking cog in the wheel man. We're we're a spoke on the fucking fucking will pawn on the Chess Board for sure. Yeah that's it. Maybe the felt underneath on all right so relatively sadly abruptly You find yourself a fucking jackass civilian. Yeah so you know being in that position that you know for your entire adult life you've never really found yourself in talk about the experience of of how fish out of water you felt or not in that. That was like finding yourself Ben Affleck now yeah I people forget you know one thing in association with PTSD is as a career and special operation. All traumatic I mean everything. You do in special operations from training the downtime which there is none to the experiences you face at war that entire experiences a like a dog at war so when you come home from that and you're expected to be a house pet it really doesn't work out that way and so I got out and transition straight into the National Guard which is the reserve component of special forces in nineteenth and Twentieth Special Forces Group. And that was cool because Atta team on active duty I stood up a team on the national guard and but it was one weekend a month. Yeah I mean that wasn't something that was earth-shattering when it came to transitions for me it'd make it easier so I had a tough time. China fucking was falling apart and relationships. I burn a relationships Isolate myself they can. That was a proper answer I'm I'm not even a drinker and I was drinking just trying to drown away just shit. I didn't want to think about it so it was painful. Luckily I got a job with the the agency which which helped a lot because it it. I remember the time where I got vetted with the agency and they said hey you're going to now deploy our super prompt Mike. Thank God get back on the road and there wasn't a big wall. We're talking about six to eight months of lull but in that six months with terminal leave did it was like being in purgatory. Were you ever married on. Active duty was yeah. I completely fucked up any kids none. Well Kelly's there's that reading is so that being one of the casualties of the of the job and you know in that six to eight month purgatory. Time was there any soul-searching two trips. Were there any elements. Were you know that you kind of had an epiphany slap yourself or was it just getting that job with the agency of now having something something else to focus on that really kind of pulled out of so. I definitely had an epiphany. I mean one of the instances that I I often discussed just hitting rock bottom. I mean brock bottom for me was literally bottom of my kitchen floor You know I had a house in Colorado. I had a wife. Had everything going for me. You know I had everything and pissed it all away and after talking to counselors psychologists and everything else what we often do is similar to what we experienced in war where we think what we have in structure needs to be burned down to the ground for some reason Sabotage sabotage or burn bridges and brings it to the ground is part of our Mo and so at rock bottom. I had to get off my acid acid. Do something I wasn't. I went from working out every day being a leader at the tip of the spear being in Special Operations which clearly define me to not having having your identity. Fuck I was so I went to hot yoga. which is crazy? Mostly to stare at chicks asses chicks asses which was cool in San Antonio Texas. I did that and it was a pretty cool experience. You know ninety minutes of suffering made me Phil home and and it sucks. I'll I was. I was going through a counter. Water a period. You know if you're if you're one hundred and twenty pound female a AH hot. Yoga is not that difficult. But if you're two hundred forty pound dude it's fucking hard that's inflexible as fuck. That's inflex can't even touch.

Group went through the magazine on his plate carrier indexed and who is body armor But if it wasn't for this dog Palsson Johnson on this bad guy at that time and even taking that Max muzzle velocity and reducing the foot pounds of energy. He would have been dead if him right in the chest. Rat were. That dude stood He most certainly would eight that round through his body armor and we looked at it because we did the analysis on it as part of my job in technical And it was like day. This killed you man. You're lucky to be alive and I've seen that happen many times Over my military career just the lives that these these dogs have saved is amazing. I'm assuming the dog didn't make the dog did not make. Did you have instances where dogs dogs were shot or injured significantly and they did survive. We have we have dogs that have been blasted with suicide. Best best shrapnel and survive concussions. We've taken dogs personally organization. I've taken dogs to The CASH CLINIC TO BE MEDEVAC. Like a American soldier now where they have survived with shrapnel wounds like even this dog that recently was made famous For the raid. Eight on Al Baghdadi that was electrocuted during the raid That's commonplace in those dogs operating with our organizations. Get the same treatment as an American. Yeah I I love no on that. I know people love to hear the heck. Did you know the dog that was on that one I didn't he was yeah. I had been long removed from the organization Prior to it happening but I know the caliber handlers and those dogs and there's no doubt about especially I know specifically we the part where they'll get organization because I used to be in that part That they're the best one of the neatest things about him. I think is that you you know a lot of times. You know for people that are really far removed from the military and look at it you know probably a lot less biased and far more objectively than maybe guys like us. What later on people that have been in the machine and seeing the dogs work were or whatever you know tend to show some resistance to using them that? There's there's kind of a double edged short. I think that a lot of people think of and that you know putting these dogs in harm's way and then agreed however You know one of the things that that I really like about their capability ability is Because they're so small fast quiet and efficient they in essence save their own lives by being that way and while yes sometimes they are lost. Like there's I mean it's almost like planes crashing like there are thousands of operations taking place where they're not and they're not her just like like with people you know in that it's not common for them to get killed and Or even severely wounded while yes it does happen when you look the broad scope of how many operations take place where dogs are doing their thing like you know ninety nine point whatever fucking percent of the time. They're not getting hurt. And they're actually not just keeping human safe safe because there is fast and you know Fuckin- greased lightning as they are in a in a lot of areas. They're actually keeping themselves safe because because of it which which is nice anything else. Canine lies you can share. Yeah I think it's a good point that you brought up and it ties. The canines is. There's a misunderstanding that special operators in special operations is somehow the most dangerous job. And it's it's likely not statistically because of the caliber of the assessed and trained that operate at the tip of the spear so if we put the best operators on the planet out there with the best assets and support mechanisms They're more likely going to be successful and less likely to be killed or injured and I think that goes hand in hand with The dog programs the animals that were put out there on the battle. Yeah animals humans are humans to is there a best buy store you could share. Oh Man. I'LL SHOUF SUV so that probably I don't even know like shared allowed to be shared. But I've seen some of these dogs man. I guess without disclosing maybe necessarily tactics just like what. The circumstance was in terms like where he was bid. Or you know yet. I've so a lot of the call outs that we do. You know the ads you call call somebody out. It's odd even say that out loud because ah it started. In the pioneering days or cowboys and Indians was like come out your hands up kind of thing but we started doing that because al-Qaeda smart you're gonNA they're gonNA they're gonna be bid ED or or pressure plate or pecan choose your sabotage booby-traps. They're going to do that and to have a dog that he sets nimble that you could throw through a window is a game changer. And you know we would. We would rig up all kinds of equipment to our dog's throat then through windows and have them hunt. You know they're they're they're site predators hunt and here and find anything that that's hiding one operation. We had a dog and this this was in my days. The commander's in EXTREMIS forces a pretty elite force in special forces We get we get great dogs great assets with through a dog through a a window and it was going through this house and we didn't realize it but it was connected to another house and it was a mace and this maze of structures. And and everything else. We couldn't get the dog. We couldn't find the dog. We didn't know what the Hell's going on so we're looking at the handler and the hanters looking at us and then the ground force commanders manners like. I don't know what they ought to do. We have to go in here and and find out where this dog and you walk into a room. And he's laying on a couch watching watching analogize ear so we start software in this house and come to find out. He found a trap door inside this house. Where as part or like the the shitter structure which is a room with a hole in the wall or hole in the ground and there was like a false trap door? He went to this trap door and was eating this dudes leg and this dude was in part of the tunnel where he couldn't sit up to even fight the no Christ so he was laying down hiding in this small hole while the this dog particular was a Mao was inside of the hole with him chewing on his leg and we didn't know how long this has been going off uh-huh in there it was like I even conscious the guy was in and out of consciousness And it was basically from his ankle to his knee and was just destroy. I mean me. Basically no through his entire leg. KFC Leg fucking Casey Wag. What's crazy is what's what's really crazy is when we discover this pull them out now and we drove out? The dude had a belt of grenades and ammo but he couldn't get because the way he had pushed himself the whole he physically couldn't move his hand from word above his head down to his grenade czar. And if we didn't identify he didn't identify the bad guy hiding in the whole we certainly would Iran into them and and certainly more than likely would have been set up an ambush. I mean he was just he was part of the AAC. You sell that we were looking for and they were just waiting to do some damage at his fucking gnarly. There's a similar her story the law enforcement group that Almost two T- it was ductwork robbery. Scenario where the guy climbed up into it was probably you know twelve or fourteen inch you know had to Superman fucking pose wiggle through this shit and dog came and got him in his near the top of his hamstring string from the bottom of his ass to his knee was just. There's nothing there it was just fucking his his femur base and he was completely unconscious uh-huh but Yeah it shits those fucking dogs when they get into that fucking blind blinded by. Oh yeah genetic fucking forward aggression it's It's something to see. I love him. I love All right so when a won't you left there. How much can you talk about the US? Ask Group that you stood up after that so I yeah I can talk about it. We we stood up new contingency to respond to things that were going on in Africa as As we stood this district as a year we had a year and when we showed up pan. This is like the movies. I mean. This is something that I live for where we showed up. And they're like okay. You have the opportunity to pick select your team. You come up with the training that you WANNA do whatever it takes to get these guys reading. We had the full support of the colonel at the time was general. Now Colonel Dietrich Vlad respect for and he said Mike just do what you gotTa do to make this happen. We had a good company. Commander Concerned Major. I was a sniper reconnaissance team sergeant so I had a team of snipers one of the difficult challenges that I have is. An special operations happens to be on a sniper reconnaissance team. You have to be sniper qualified you have to be sephardic qualify. which is our seek? You Be Advanced Haass's rescue school and you have to be free fall so sending my guys some who were cherries who were good. Dudes wasn't going to let them go but they had to go to school. I had to go to school for a year. I mean they were in all the schools back to back and then once we got him a simulated we had to do the vetting and validation Shen by a special operations command to ensure that we can meet the mission set and this involves a lot of inter agency operations in coordination And also at the tail end of it we identified who is going to deploy I and it was me. There's me as a team leader and it was two of my guys we're GONNA deploy as a first members of this organization to Libya and this is probably this is we vetted or validated September. First First of two thousand twelve before Benghazi right before ten days before Benghazi now and a lot of people. It's interesting about this and I'm glad I'm on your podcast because AH relationships with some of the men that were killed that night on September eleventh. But what's important to note is prior to even September eleventh happened. There's a lot of controversy about did we know the circumstances and situation everything else and the answer is unequivocally knew everything about that circumstance. I knew going to deploy so I was having my eighteen Fox whose an intelligence guy on my team brief us all the significant activity that was taking place in Libya every single week so he was tracking Sig ax in Benghazi and Tripoli in between and was telling us a lot about shit was happening in fact dictated a lot of my training that I was doing with my team because hey all the UN just got a frag- thrown at their Their vehicle the Italians just got their vehicle blown up. We need to do training on mobility and react to contact so it drove a lot of our training protocol will then Benghazi kicks off at at the time. That Benghazi kicked off. I was in a special Mrs Unit Compound at Fort Bragg North Carolina and I was doing cross talks talks because it was. There's a joint task force or operation and was watching the whole thing unfold on. Isr on the planning. We did a hasty planning as part of that process And then was coordinating with my team in my company back at Fort Carson Colorado to where we are standing up to launch and deploy because our job was to do that to respond and react so no longer story shorter we wind up leaving a few weeks right after Benghazi and deploying with the intent originally of standing up a twelve away which is a counterterrorism program to to go account al-Qaeda which just tells you obviously that we were thinking about things that were happening..

"How much did you skim off the top just ten percent? I looked at it when like ten percents a safe number. It's like the tide right going to church income going back and forth and everything and we lost our remember. Remember the the the week that Infield we had Chinook hit with seven killed three guys on the ground we lost three chinooks that time period heard including the one from the navy the image forty seven. I we lost one of our ops image forty seven so it was just a hectic year when that kicked off I was on Radio Guard at the talk and our firebase you know we had fifteen fifteen to twenty Americans with about one hundred Afghans in the middle of nowhere and they started letting us know that things going down. We prepped our equipment preparing to roll out. They the initial cure F- they basically gathered everybody at Camp Vance and said we're going so a lot of guys just went on and then we we responded by assisting those guys I remember hearing the initial movement one movement was going to recover them eight image forty seven another unit a unit or element was is going to recover Marcus Latrell and it just felt I felt helpless being in the situation I was. I know I knew we had a task and purpose which was sitting on Nhl Z.. Standing by to assist them because they need if they needed reinforcements but I hated here in The struggle that was going on in that being a part of it. Because because you know if if you've never heard the story even with the body recovery's when they end filled they ran out of food. They ran out of water They were doing CDs. Bundle drops that terrain was brutal. I mean I was in the middle of the Hindu Kush at ten thousand feet and we couldn't move anywhere without elevating. It's not like we were getting any low-ground there so it was a sombre filling and when the bird went down we knew it went went down and then we knew when we had two teams that that went in with the Rangers to rescue the trail of both of them noted in his book. I think one of me call like a a black. An African American medic range medic was actually one of my buddies that was on the scuba team He also noted one of the commanders that was head of the Rangers he was actually a green beret in chart. His name's this can't he was in charge of the groundforce ground force commander of the of the organization that went into physically extract. But yeah it was. It was saw bringing the state of waste. I in the at least as far as I am aware the when that Hilo went down like it Kinda hit hit a cliff in fuck doc enrolled rights. I mean is it was in an area that was almost fucking impossible to get to write it was it was you know is going to set it guys were on ropes when he got hit with. RPG They know that because some of the guys that came off the rope were intact. They weren't devastated like by the crash. Notion Russian. Yeah Yeah so there are some guys that were intact so they basically fell out of the bird and then when it got hit on this is just what I was told Mrs Partly Hearsay. You're say I've seen the pictures and the videos and everything else. But then he attempted to get out gain allegation and set it down on a ridge. Line clipped the top of the rich line and then it it crashed in the side of the mountain and then rolled all the way down so there were guys suspended from the yellow. When I got yeah so did they the fall off the rope? Yeah that's what they that's what they make because they had ropes out and Some of the guys off the rope as it was hit with an RPG a PG alot heartbeat she goes I. I did not know that some wild shit so like after that the following in how many months were you in country after that after that happened man four months so in that four more that four month period was there a retribution tribulation time period has like all right mother fuckers coming off there absolutely was we. We were involved in a big operation and coat. You Valley Alley. which is the you know as a terrorist safe haven? We push the valley We we had marines providing tillery support calling for fire. We had Apaches Winchester on the on the lines. We that's when we had the image forty seven that crashed in Burnley crash and we have drop a j dam on it but but in addition to that we recovered some propaganda from the bad guys. Perspective of the videos that were taking from. The bag is respective of the assault on on on the literal team. So we were able to extract some of that during us. SC was there anything that surprised you or that you know that you didn't think cap'n or didn't know that happened. That from their vantage point either disproved after action or just shed more light. That's not more commonly known. Yeah there's a whole bunch of stuff like a Marcus got debrief before we even left country. We had destroyed. All we had his debrief. And and the debrief of the it was JPR A the guys who do joint personnel recovery sent out a blast. Everybody and there's a whole bunch of things that happen. You know some of it which isn't communicated which isn't talked about but you know if I thought about something that stood out the most our company was tasked with doing that operation? We had a halo team that was in Asadabad was six four which is three six four which are halo teammate? In Our company apart Third Group Company and I was on three six six mountain team. The the sergeant or the Tim Sergeant of that detachment turned down that up and it was. What twelve guys and said? Hey we're not GONNA WE'RE NOT GONNA do this op. It's there's too many people in there and You know obviously the as the story goes you know. Ask deviant team. Ten went in there with four guys. And you you know. I don't ever WANNA be in a position to criticize guys. That aren't here. It was a bad situation to begin with because you had a whole bunch of guys and reconnaissance percents grew up in rocky. That's really what I did. My entire career Special Reconnaissance and I just get sick thinking about those men you know. Mike Murphy Dietz and all those guys fighting for their lives in that circumstance getting overwhelmed and I think a whole bunch of mistakes were made on all ends that need needs to be talked about in the right context. which probably isn't even this conversation to help? Military decision makers and tactical guys on the ground to nat. Make those mistakes in the future and I think a lot of that came out especially when it came to providing support for even the guys on the ground I mean you how do you provide support for one hundred and fifty militants that are attacking four guys. There needs to be something on you know on paper and then in the air and there were a lot of those mechanisms in place. Do you think the Department of Defense has done an adequate job of reducing that to a lessons lessons learned and distributing it so that Those mistakes aren't made now that at all good news yeah. There's not a lot of cross talk. I mean I teach my guys as much as I no and I've done that since that incident happened. But there's you know it's it's so bizarre to me because silting ten was right next door to us. There was no cross communication between Camp Vance and seal team ten retina on the road And what we're doing an operating on. I didn't experience that until until later in war when we started doing joint operations. But it's like even the cure F- was a hodgepodge of people that they could gather. They're like hey you're in the army. I mean you want to go on his cure it should have been designated so yeah. There's a whole bunch of lessons learned. Marcus outlined a lot of those in the book and the conversations says that he had thus but we need to always do a better job at at talking about even the worse circumstances to better our chances and surival. Yeah Amen on that in terms of the the retribution. Ops Is Ernie Minneapolis that you can share that gave you guys a sense of retaliation that like legitimately tangible like this. What we did and this is what we accomplished? Yeah our whole entire company you know. We had a whole company of six attachments on the border. Every single one of those was teams in their area of operation went out and were smacking bad guys including US coach Valley so from the army's perspective specifically Third Special Forces Mrs Group We did a lot of killing to make up the best we could to to get some vengeance and some justice for those men that were killed. Yeah did you guys his lose anybody on that Nine month we did. He was in my company. We did lose a guy He was killed in. ID We had a whole bunch you do shot and injured but as far as my company and six detachments a we favor pretty well that rotation. Yeah we're at that time where you guys are out a huge fucking problem. Though they weren't. Yeah yeah that's a big reason why we didn't. I rolled up and down our valley which was considered Sonar Valley up and down the Kohner River one in Messer one main supply route up and down north south south that ran along the river and we never got. Id and the reason we didn't is because the wasn't implemented in that AO AO. During that time period we got lucky. I was running. I was driving around in an open cut in fabricated landrover defender one ten that was cut in fabricated for operating drink as we couldn't have a hummer that was appointed a up armored Humvee because we couldn't cross bridges to be too damn heavy. Do you wish you had a Toyota Land Rover an environment. I wish I had anything Toyota now. Lexus or bad heilige survey. Go fucking sell them. Here drives some of our sister teams. Were on High Lexus Because of the mountains you're surrounded by we couldn't get guns up up and so we just cut off the roof over defender one tents and you know. Land Rovers are great but they're just pieces of shifts and so we had costly work on them but yeah man if we if we could have had landcruisers there would have been a game changer so landrover in in that are the best pieces of shit out there though. You're saying that's the best best. We had best shit. We had all right so you come back off of that deployment and then you did. Was it three more so I did. So I came off that deployment immediately to Iraq Iraq in Oh six which Iraq seven went to Iraq and no wait went to Iraq and nine back to Afghanistan and ten and then Libya in eleven twelve. Jesus Jesus Christ so so. You barely did anything then. Barely barely if you could What is the simplest way to contrast Afghantistan Afghanistan to Iraq from Special Operation Standpoint in how we operate I would say you know? Iraq's urban cluster. Fuck it's it's just a big urban sprawl that has sparse rural environments. Where you can get lucky in a safe house and kill a whole bunch of bad.

"I mean my incentive for people ask me about the eighteen x Ray Program for example. I tell them when you're coming off the streets. You don't have an understanding in context of what suffering really is and for for the choke yourself civilian assholes Can you describe a eighteen x ray eighteen REC X ray. It was a program in the eighties and then a program in the Modern Jihua the globe. worrintary where we're they're taking in recruiting people off the street based on aptitude expert life experience potentially and they had to meet certain prerequisites. They brought him in. They went through you. A special operations course put them into selection than put them into the pipeline will you would get a myriad of personalities and characters obviously and they wouldn't have a reference for what the Big Army was and so they were just there and they're like this sucks like no. This doesn't suck. Yeah the A big army sucks so what I did take away from. Having four years in the industry is I didn't want to go back to the big because the big army sought even even eighteen x ray who didn't really appreciate what was going on at the time like man. This is a good life special operations or special forces specifically as a good life and I didn't want to go back back to the big army life. So let's talk about a little bit of that. Is that you so you joined at seventeen myself. Similarly what was that first the first four years years of of your career like it was good. It wasn't very good in the beginning. We're going to boot. Camp saw boot camp at Fort Benning Georgia and it's called Osa. Oh set one stop. Unit training immediately went into the army. Actually within the army's eleven x Ray which is a basically the army choose. Who's your MOS or your your specialty based on how a preference it? When I went to basic training at Fort Benning Georgia they just said? Hey you guys is or eleven bravo's you guys are Charlie's and you guys eleven Mike and Hotels and Bravo's were light infantryman and then he scaled up based on vehicles vehicles heavy armor and everything else even mortars and they made me an eleven hotel. Eleven hotel was heavy armor or heavy tank. Anti Armor personnel sells an infantryman. who drove in a Humvee? Yeah I didn't realize this time but I joined the army to be a ranger airborne ranger except when when the ranger instructors came and roll call to collect all the ranger students. They didn't pick me up and I I was confused. I said Hey I I joined. I have an option forty contract which the contractual obligation to Ranger Regiment. And they didn't pick me up and they said there's no eleven hotels in the regiment the regiment so automatically I started having a fit. I'm like man I joined the army to be arranger. I got ripped off. I got the recruiter crude and they did. I mean the recruiter knew that there was a chance of me. Only at twenty five percent chance of me getting picked up in a bravo. Mos I guess fifty percent I think because Eleven Charlie's which is motormen COULDA got picked up as well and so I had a bad taste in my mouth in the get. Go from the get-go I I threw a fit I call my uncle was a SAR major and eighteenth airborne court time. He made some phone calls and they came back and said. Hey listen and we're going to send this kid to the Third Infantry Regiment. which is the old guard? I didn't even know what the hell that was and I wasn't very happy about about it but I said hey whatever it takes for me to be eleven bravo so I was in basic training. Had already completed training in a civilian contractor actually came into a room like this and he had my contract and he took a pin and he crossed out eleven hotel and he wrote Eleven B Eh Eleven Bravo or basic human and then he signed his initial and I was like what the hell was the. You just change my Mo- he's like that's that's your new. MOS and so it. Because he did that for me. There was an obligation for me to go to the regiment. The old guard says it. All Right Roger. I'll do whatever takes as long as I get to regiment so I went to the Oh guard and didn't even know what it was and realized I didn't WanNa be there. They had a scout platoon. Thank goodness and I did did that for a little bit. And then my uncle who was in the patry was also a tomb garden and he said listen. You have to buy your time there. You have to do good. Go be attuned guard and it's not that easy. Being Attuned Garcia went and tried out to be a tomb guard and nine months later. Sure garden tomb of the unknowns. And it would do that until I went to selection no shit. Yeah so I'm assuming that's the I saw on on your Minster Graham fee just a few days ago talking about being awarded like the four hundred seventy eight second pan out of it's only been four hundred and some since like nineteen forty. The three is it. Yeah that's it I'm real curious like Is I've never never known or talk to anybody that's done that. Obviously that's a fucking super elite small group of people let that have that Feather in their cap. What what does the the try out and the training consists of like what does that was it like? So when I went through as a e set you raise your hand and said I want to try out for the chimney known to be a tomb guard. If you've never been to the tomato known. It's an Arlington National Cemetery. It it's it's a large crypt underneath that crypt as the war. One unknown so we're talking about a an American service member who served their country our country specifically Out War and then not only lost her life Lahser entity you're talking about remains that could be identified. We paid homage to that and built a crypt and then in front of that. We have the were to Korea and Vietnam unknowns as well and so that's been guarded by the Old Guard and the army twenty twenty four hours a day since nineteen forty eight mile so what right no matter what. Rain Snow Sleet or heat. It's been guarded than I've been through all of them In ceremonial uniforms during in the summer time the guards changed every thirty minutes. which includes seven-minute garching about thirty seven minutes of being out there? Come down for a couple of minutes. Drink some water reset he said and then go back out there again. What kind of shift does that real quick so so the thirty on yeah typically? It's it's like a fireman schedule your twenty four on twenty for off on off on four days off all year round and then we have three shifts or three release based on height. First second and third word. I'm six one so I was on the shorter relief. Then you have a second. Relief was about sixty two six three and then six four six three and above is first relief. You've and that's that's nonstop so you go through that process where you go through a two week. INITIA- assessment period as this person. Because it's open to anybody in the guard any mos any job male or female. Are there women. There have been women before a few handful of them But they again. The the overall experience is pretty. Tough man the attrition rate is. It's it's harder harder than being in special operations as far as the trial period. So I mean what What does one look for like when they're what's what's going to make them say this guy's got what it takes fuck gough this other guy? You know it's interesting after my tomb guard time as a guard on duty. I was a child. Was the trainer so trained tomb. Guards were year and Wrap 401 SF. So what I look for is composure discipline because initially if you have discipline and I'm telling you to correcting and you're fixing those mistakes that you might have the discipline to to last the seven to nine months it takes you to get your badge because it's an assessment all the way to get your badge edge and then you would get assessed even when you have your badge. I also look for your composition away money. You can't be happy happy. You're with your very small politically correct position. You can't be a fat fuck and you can't be fat a man my waist was so damn small back then and we're just look for you to be squared away and that's doing the walk. That's doing the timing for the walk. That's going through the guard change flawlessly. You know one one of the. I think one of the standards that we live by is is in the signals creed and it's called line six of the sentinels creed and it says my standard will remain perfection. So everything we do. You have to be perfect if you're not perfect and that striving for it but accomplishing it. Then you're not good enough to be there. I am curious I've seen like some. You know Youtube video clips of somebody fucking with the with the tomb guard in personnel occasionally or whatever. Did you ever have that happen or are there any stories you can share of times. Where like I duNNo? Some drunk guy tries to tackle colomer there has to be shit now. Yeah there's been a mean right. After after the Vietnam War our country was completely in chaos when it came to the military and our our place in war in the seventies and eighties. And there's actually an incident that took place in the eighties. Were the tomb. Him Guard on duty was taken hostage. Gunpoint you should It's actually noted because we keep keep an archive of all the guards that walked in the time and and we have that as a source of reference but we also note significant significant activity that took place and there has been a guard. It's been taken hostage. He wanted up like but stroke broken dude and the cops came in Morocco. I've had people come onto the plaza. which is the place in which is guarded protected by chains? You can't come come on there and walk there. But there's thousands of people from different countries that come there every single day. I've had people cross the change completely oblivious to what the Hell is going on I me talking as loud as they talk walking straight up to the tomb which is the actual crypt and trying to touch it which is a no-go and so what. What is your protocol recall when that happens? Usually we go to a ceremonial position. We're at port arms or holding the gun and then we start movement towards towards them to defend the tomb of the tried to maintain composure. And we say something. It's called breaking somebody off. We usually say you know access to to this areas restricted or. It is requested that everyone remains silent standing. If somebody's being loud and we have a a little guard shack. We have a phone and then we have you know people that could cure F- in seconds. That could run up and stop it unsafe act and we also have cameras that are watching watching the tomb twenty four hours a day. Yeah so there's one guy one personnel standing there. Is there somebody manning. The shack also know this shack is for the guard so we have the mat in front. You'd walk twenty one steps face face. Washington DC count twenty one seconds kind of repeat that process until the changing the guard which is kind of the famous version of what people see typically see and then the guard shack..

"It's fine for me to get rooftop tint because they breeze really well but as soon was it gets starts getting cold. I'm all about installation. So there's a lot of good insulated tents that you in ground camp and even get a car to get off the ground. I'm more about that. That left now. Is there a brand of tenth that you prefer for that Kelty Mount Mountain hardwear really really all those tents or basically the same. They're all made by the same. Dang Chinese company. Now there are some outliers in the in the tent space But but I'm basic man. I one of my favorite are the You know I like to do. We tend to like these tents but one of my favorites are the Cafaro new tents. Setups heater. You get run a a fire inside the tent kind of aluminum based and then in basically a tart but having that fire and that he sources magic so is that more of like a center it is exactly yeah. That's so it's basically like a dome for can wood-burning stove and that's it. Yeah Yeah Yeah fucking check into that. I love rooftop ten. I've got a Maja Lena brand. That's a good. I've tried a few different ones. I had a different one. That was not not very good but this one is served me well similarly like as I get older I I'd like to be a little more comfortable than just land on the fucking ground rat from your hips to your shoulders. And that's it you you know but the the about that like I replaced the stock mattress with a tempur-pedic mattress pad or which is great. As long long as it's not freezing cold otherwise it turns into a fuck and brick bow. Yeah but there's a lot of options it feels like sleeping and irregular fucking bed. which which I like I love that thing and I like being ryan way up off the ground in case something comes fucking creep and crawl an animal or person? What a normal normal day? What is your daily in your morning routine provided your home and not traveling so if I'm home man so I've been in this grind for about four years and I rarely take the circumstance stance? I haven't followed this kind of pattern alive. I get up. If I'm not doing this morning. I got up and did an hour run training for this fifty K.. So involves some type of peak PT. Because that's kind of how we wrote in our military careers get done knocked out of the way so you get like five thirty or now you know what I'm I'm not doing. The JAAKKO thing I like I try to set in at least seven now. A call. You know the solid seven if I get seven hours of sleep which is super important for me now at my age cognitively with TB. I if I don't get sleep by distort degrading I like fascinating in the morning. A like getting a run in the morning like getting seven hours sleep and then I wake up get coffee emmy and then I start. Marketing for fieldcrest arrive. Look at trends. I look at the news. I I just start getting content out there in the world and go into my office and typically revolves around content. Whether that's video on youtube our podcast whatever. It may be revolves around that. I only train on the weekends. Most people Train on the weekends. Because that's your time off so we just did a course here in Dallas Fort Worth which were were prepped. For the course. We're getting our guns and stuff ready. And that's a constant cycle may not tr train train. I don't train personally my gosh train every single weekend in twenty twenty. We'll be training so it varies but it all revolves around surviving want preparedness the news. And what's going on in the world. Yeah in terms of your your guys your team. How how big is the team that conducts training and runs runs seminars etc.? How how big a unity so so with an od Eisai's so it doesn't do so whether it's subcontract Gaza fulltime guys? I got five guys on staff right now and we just make it happen like I got a fulltime media. Guy Got a tactical trainer. WHO's the train director role roll Martinez? And then I just picked up a goddess hired. A Guy Who Kevin Owens. He just a youtube video this morning. But Kevin Owens We're we are snipers together in the commanders in extremis force SIEFF. We grew up. He was a Celtic Celtic into icy. That's a special operations target interdiction core sniper school for us. And then he's Yusop G. Eight or he was he's retired now and we just picked him up so we'll be doing long gun stuff as well. So what does and give or take depending on what we got going on. Yeah that's a solid fun crew. No doubt about them in terms of how you guys provide and we'll get get we'll get further into it but it just kind of a thirty thousand or or elevator pitch if you will the Quick Synopsis Of Field Craft. You know feel silkroad arrival when I started it. We want to cater to people. Who Don't think they need catering to my original mission statement was if I can convince a a liberal? In the middle of San Francisco lives in sky rises condo come out and realize that preparedness plays a key role in everybody's life than they success. What's easy for us to pick up more conservatives but I think it's an equal opportunities in natural disaster manmade disaster doesn't care who you are what color your does matter so we teach we teach train? We provide equipment. We provide resources and content to prepare people for for the worst case scenario. That's essentially what we do. Yeah I mean to me. There's there's a there's no nothing about that. That's not an assessing. I mean to me. It's like medical stuff or host of other things that you know you're always going to need and I think it's great. I love that kind of stuff in terms of your childhood. Where where are you originally usually from? So I was born at Fort Ord California Dow was in the army We balanced all over the place. My first four years of life was in Germany I lived in Daytona beach for a period of time with my dad and then moved to North Carolina for a couple years when my mom but joined the army very young seventeen so I just bounced up down the East Coast now. I mean obviously not having any anything that contrast that to will take my childhood as an example was born and raised in the same fucking town and I lived in the same house from the time I was born until I joined the navy at fucking seventeen slept basically in the same bedroom like basically a polar opposite opposite. Do you think that Growing up that way has shaped A proclivity to join the military and continue that same thing or do you. You think that it's at a minimum prepared you to be able to deal with that better because I know for me like that was a huge fucking culture shock going from that living in that environment. Whereas there's like a leave it to beaver fucking house in a small rural town in fucking midwest going to live out of a fucking sea bag and being all over the world and stuff? It was a shock to the system. Did that seem to prepare you fairly. Well Yeah I think so and I found that commonality you know people who grow up in the military type Home it as a benefit. Set you up for that military life were your your home is where you rest your head but I also think even now it's more of a detriment because I'm sitting anchor and I'm establishing a base of operations at home but I kind of feel a little antsy like I want to move. I want to get some melt going but sometimes in life when you settle. That's not supposed to happen and I don't think it's supposed to happen and so for me to stay in one position in calling. Good kind of weird for me was so the I'm curious. Like childhood friends. Siblings hobbies sports parts was that impacted by bouncing all over the place. Sports that you played. Yeah I played. I played football played baseball. I did a whole bunch of have athletic play basketball but it you know if I if I really think about all the people that were included in my life for periods periods of time it seemed very temporary and I bounced around a lot man in it. It's something that you know. It's almost like the precursor to social media. Now where are we look at things very temporary because we swipe it away right so yeah it did it did inject something into my mindset where I was okay with walking walking away from relationships or walking away from friends or walking away from my situation But now just as Phil Right in women love that by the well they do. They do their favorite. Yeah Delete Block fucking captain commitment issues right the element Elma. The sports and friends in that being temporary was there something other than the fact that your dad was in the military. And what did he do In the military so my dad was a military police officer and then he branched believe artillery and infantry or something like that and yeah thank you know He. He's being around his. Ta Fifty as military equipment in that lifestyle is kind of what was the prelude for set me up for that. Yeah does he work work with you at all grown up like teaching it certain military skills or survival skills or anything like that he plant that bug or was it something you just had an inclination for. I think had ankle nation in more than anything. I mean maybe set me up as put me in front of the TV watching eighteen. All even navy seals. Charlie Sheen I did a lot of for that but My Dad was a big fisherman. I grew up probably every day of my life damn near every day. Fishing ruined so being outdoors living living the lifestyle. That's all we did we fished. Do you have a favorite fish I'm a big Fan. I'm a big fan of trout now. I grew up that way and I grew up in inlets ponds and streams and everything else. But I'm I'm a big fan of trout just because the variations of Brown trout and the trouser trout the Brown trout. So the I guess you know from a growing up standpoint siblings etc.. was there our other than you know your dad having some some sort of a prelude Influence was there like a day. Where you're like? This is what I'm GonNa do and I want to be a fucking green. Yeah if I think about it There were some instances one of the instances that stands out to me as my uh my uncle. My Dad's brother retired navy and I remember. I watched the movie Navy Seals Charlie Sheen and you know man. People underestimate how popular culture affects us as children. And you know it. Obviously it happens today but back then it was all about the military platoon soon. Full metal jacket the apocalypse. Now the list goes on and so when I was growing up watching more movies with my dad because my dad was living vicariously you know you put the military behind him was doing corrections and was living vicariously through these movies. I was a part of that segment and so playing more. Wanting it'd be a soldier was always end me and I remember asking my uncle if I wanted to be a navy seal and had kind of a frank discussion with me and said listen. You could do do that but if you fail. It's not like you're done you're fucked. It's not like the army where there's a whole bunch of different combat arms options soon you'll be mopping the deck of a carrier ship. And so I said so. What are the other options in my? My Dad said they had a little a battle of services but he was like just on the Army Special Forces Guy and so I started looking into it. This is probably at the age of ten where I made the decision that I was going to be special forces. No Shit you know the safety net or lack thereof Inferences and interesting one to me because you would think that that would good for the people that do decide that that that would motivate them maybe a little further. Yeah right is that there's the burn the boats mentality of whatever fucking fucking invader that was when our burning are fucking ships. We have to be successful kind of thing is that there's an element of that. I know like when I was going through buds. And we're sitting there getting our ship pushed pushed in on the beach by a handful of instructors. And there's a big gray ship fuck in two miles out at sea floating around and you're looking out there and you're like fuck that To get incentive. Yeah for sure. It is in the fact that it's like you know that. Hey if you don't make it through this like you're going to be chipping paint on on a fucking boat like that. 'cause Asia undesignated seamen which is a lot of references. You can pull but you know not having really a AH fucking plan plan B or or any type of legitimate backup. That's not gonNa just absolutely suck for me was a huge motivator. I am curious going through Ranger Ranger School Q.. Course election the whole selection pipeline for. You guys did that ever cross your mind or did you see guys you know that would use that like well fuck can leave here and go do whatever and that actually help them quit. Do you think yeah I think. In the naval or facilitated. They're they're checking checking out. The I think you know in my head I said to my S- I repeatedly said to myself. I would rather die than quit and I know that's I mean that's extreme but when you are living it and you're going to the suck and the pain everything else. There was nothing that was going to physically break me. And you know I don't and I didn't. Big Selections were hard. I don't all these selections are. They were hard to me because I know I knew I'm more than likely it wasn't going to die. So as long as they continue to move forward Lord I would be successful and I didn't want I didn't want to create an out for me because I did four years in the infantry airborne school ranger school did all this stuff and then I knew that was an option for me but I didn't want any more of the big army..

I don't know what you guys think like for me. I find that a lot most major metropolitan areas are kind of all the same like there's different flavors of culture, you know, depending on where they're at. But, but you have kind of that same almost, you know, big city feel that, that's relatively interchangeable. I think I mean at least that's how I view when I go to different places different places to eat and shit. But there's a lot of that, like, you know, huge industry or metropolitan area, a lot of left leaning bullshit, even here in Texas. I mean, whether it's Austin San Antonio, Dallas, whatever there's certainly big pockets of it, that are not, like, what you would think are Texas at all. So you guys will be hanging out there.

"So there you have it. Last question m. k. I am. I be Mike new sure. Some thoughts on raising kids at an early age with important values and principles such as honor, work ethic, perseverance, there is a reason I'm saving a for last and be asking it again or answering another one. Even though I've already answered it. A sensually is because I feel that it is that fucking important and needs to be reiterated. All of those honor work ethic. Perseverance are important, and I'm going to restate that you have to lead by example, whether that's raising kids, whether that's owning a business, whether it is doing anything in life is that you have to be the the either the change or the example that you want to either see or set. And if you're not that then fuck you, frankly, to expect that out of anybody else, you can't expect loyalty and be disloyal backstabbing. Fuck you can't expect honesty and being allying two faced son of a bitch. You can't expect a hard working perseverance driven attitude when you're lazy, fat. Fuck that quits at a moment's notice when things get a little bit hard. My point is is that if you don't have the ability to demonstrate that, then you're never going to be able to instill that in somebody you have to do that. Do it for your kids, do it for your comrades, do it for your teammates, do it for your coworkers, do it for your spouse, be the kind of spouse you want to be married to, you know, fuck Dr. Phil, you can come and talk to Dr. Mike on mic drop..

Is it for those of you that didn't listen if you didn't choke yourself and then go listen to it anyway. The gist of it is I get up. I drink usually about twenty ounces of water bone broth with some CBD oil in it. Coffee with MCAT oil and college powder or the collagen powder I'll put in the bone broth just depends. And then I write, I don't right. Like I'm not a fucking warrior poet like like some people are, but by, right? I mean, I write shit down that's relevant for the day, kind of pan the plan or style, it'll bit of gratitude a little bit of, hey, this is what I need to focus on today.

My body doesn't work exceptionally well first thing in the morning. So I like to drink my breakfast with nutrient dense drinks and that not eat and get bloated and whatever. Try to stick to just good healthy fat and not a ton of carbohydrates, and then just rock and roll from there.

"Priority and making time in in tampering your your attitude and your in your temper, or your short fuse. Because you know you're busy working on something that you've almost got this deal to go through or this project at work, or you know you're trying to get a promotion or whatever. You know, I'm not going to sit here and say, blow that shit off and just be a family man and fuck everything else. No, because you you do have to be a provider and that is not easy. You know when people are depending on you for. For resources and money, and and the ability to provide like you, you should and need to take that fucking serious, but you can't take it so serious to where everything else fails. And that is a dicey fucking rope to walk one that I don't think I did an adequate job with frankly, and and if paid for it, you know. But again, I don't. I don't want to sit here and have fucking regrets. I learned from from everything that hasn't gone exactly how I wanted it to go and and take those lessons into the future and make goddamn sure that that doesn't continue to happen. So that's a, that's it. You know, I, it's separating it. It's almost impossible for me. It was. It was almost impossible very hard and I did not do as good a job as I should and could have. And that's that would be my advice is that make it make it work, you know, satisfy the the, the PR. Priority of having to to ensure that you can provide, but also satisfied the relationships that you have to make sure are there and good and wholesome and fed so that so that they don't suffer because ultimately, if they're not there, then what's the fucking point. So you know, make time get up earlier and figure it out. All right, western massacre as Mike first off, much respect for your service. My question is this. I'm a liberal Democrat, sorry to hear that, but I'm also pro gun. That's fucking twisted. Odd. I know I agree wholeheartedly that gun control is pointless. However, I'm struggling with the notion of teachers carrying how do you feel is the best way to help prevent school shootings? There's another question or two on school shootings, but. First off, you sound confused western massacre, but..

"Author were his hand was buried up my ass trying to help me not be constipated, so having to go to him and then have the entire platoon walk in and see that and find it out was kind of a kind of shit sandwich which is going to lead me the next question, which falls in line with that. This is the mic drop podcast. What's the significance of drop? All right. Here's a free tidbit. The significance of drop. To me is kind of self explanatory. I, I guess I would have hoped that it is in terms of when you drop the mic, is it that's kind of the style of of talking that we do here is mic drop quality talking shit and saying things to each other and whatever using my name spelled m. i. e. as the substitute for 'em ic-. However, what nobody knows and I'm gonna share this with you guys right now falling in line with some embarrassing ship. I actually came up with that name while I was taking a shit. And that is that as the truth is that. I have no idea why. But that's what it happened. I was taking ship and and I thought mic drop just kinda hit hit me like a lightning rod of just like God what a fucking brilliant name for podcast, because that's how I talk is totally open, honest raw in your face, whatever. And my name is Mike. So that just seemed like a good fit. But I came up with it while dropping a fuck and deuce if you can believe it. All right at swift river GS d. says, I'm interested to hear more about your political views. They seem really on point with what I feel is general consent census. Here, here's the general consensus of my political views is actually very, very simple and just like I was talking about earlier, I like to keep shit simple. As you know, to me, we are a Republic, a constitutional Republic and to me because of that and the brilliance with which our forefathers drafted such an incredible document as the constitution, the Bill of rights and and the amendments to go along with them. I think that that tells you what to do ninety nine percent of the time in to me, that should be the first question is that when you have a question, a policy argument trying to determine what the fuck you wanna do or not do whether you wanna involve yourself in foreign affairs or not how to handle things at home with whether it's immigration. I don't give shit what it is is, you know, step one question one. What does the constitution say? You know, let that drive you because that's what it's there for. That's our Republic has been. Designed around why the fuck do you not use that? One of the things that frankly drives me nuts is the term lawmaker. Why the fuck do we have lawmakers that I don't think we need any more goddamn laws? What does the constitution say like that that should be the document with which we let drive our country and why that's not taking place? I wouldn't say is beyond me. I know it happens because there's a bunch of crooked fucks who are in charge of of our government that that take it upon themselves to continue to be crooked fucks. You know to me the fact that that you pick any congressman or Senator that you look at their net worth before they go to Washington DC and you look at an afterwards, it's never, and I mean fucking never in the in the red. It's never in the red by comparison. They're always worth way fucking more than when they joined that. My friends is a fucking problem. That should not be that way. And that should be a cause for huge concern. In my opinion, the other thing is that I think it seventy or eighty percent of the country's wealth is in the surrounding couple hours of Washington DC, Washington DC doesn't fucking produce anything. They don't manufacture anything. They don't farm anything. They don't generate anything except hate and fucking discontent amongst the American people. Why is there so much wealth there there shouldn't be? How do you, how do you regulate that? How do you ask some? How do you ask a governing body to regulate itself and stop being crooked. When it has the power to do. So I don't know how you do that, but that's my take on it very simply that let the let the the constitutional Republic drive itself in the manner in which it's supposed to, which is governed by the constitution.

"Most of them are honestly. I mean, they all are to a certain extent and that you know to get through that training it is. It is a feet. It's a, it's a hell of an accomplishment. I mean, there's, there's been a lot of guys that you know were just textbook consummate fucking warriors that you know that that I have the utmost respect for an and honored to been been in the position to just be able to serve with with those guys. I can't can't really pick anyone. I would just say that the community has a whole Timothy queering. Mike. What is your favorite tattoo and where were you when you got it sip in any particular whiskey? At the moment Jesus, it's the middle of the day, Tim. Now. Not. I actually, I actually don't drink very much hardly at all, honestly, but I'll get into that here in a in a few more questions but turns my favorite tattoo. I don't have a favorite. There's the the three big main tattoos that I have all hold a special place. There's been a number of questions about this. I'm just gonna dress with yours where I was what they mean, all that kind of stuff. Somebody else asked where my first one was solid dress that quick. I have little seals and frogs in band around my right ankle. Yes. I am embarrassed to admit that that was my first tattoo and I got it on the desk of an accounting firm total like not black market, but outside what's above board. And it was, you know, after hours it was a friend of a friend that did tattoos and said, hey, this, this looks lame. Why don't you put this on the body on my body for the rest of my fucking life. It's it's a lame ass tattoo, but it was the first one I got in. I got it on the desk of of some assholes office at nine at night. The other. I've got four other ones. Three that are special to me. The next one that I got is the bone frog covering my ribcage that is a textbook calling card seal tattoo. That means a lot to me because when I was a student, the guy that drew that keys chimera died. He was an instructor. He died in the in the dive tower from shallow water blackout, and he had drawn that. And so a bunch of the instructors when my generation was going through got that tattoo, you know, at at that time and and inspired a lot of us and kind of just took off like wildfire and a lot of guys got it. The other two, tattoos I've got. It's basically the navy gadston flag rendition. It's it's just a rattlesnake wrapped around an anchor on my left arm. And then the the head of of the snake goes down. My chest fierce is and his tongue sticking out almost looking my nipple, which is pretty hot. Let's be honest. Why that one is important to me is because of the guy that did it shout out to war, paint five, thirteen. That motherfucker is the real deal. And he has put more ink on more fucking bad asses than anybody in the planet to me that one is exceptionally special because because of who put it on there and in the context with which it got administered and it's great work. The other one guy goes by the handle aunt aunt, Mike. He was on one of the one of the shows, one of the tattoo contests. I think he wanted actually, but it's kind of a a rendition of the Trident without being an actual tried. Like it's not. The traditional actual picture of a Trident, but it's all of the pieces. The Flint, lock, the Trident staff, the anchor and the eagle, the eagle, same kind of thing. It's on there on my right side anchors on on my arm. The Trident staff goes down my forearm which you can see a lot of pictures, and then the eagle wings or across my chest, going all the way up up onto my neck and my my shoulder. And to me, that's important and special for obvious reasons that that tried and is, is the the insignia with which a seals identify ourselves and so that that's pretty good, and it was very well done. The guy is is a huge talent. I went to Tucson to get at at a tattoo shop there, shut out the him for doing a fan. Fantastic job. All right, Luke Edmonds..

"I know some of them are joking. Unfortunately, no, some of them are not to me if you can see pictures from outer space with a round fucking planet, that kind of tells you, you know what fucking shape it is. I don't know why. That's a rocket science. Why is that rocket science at this point? I don't. I don't know, but it is Charles wetter otter. Did you ever have any aspirants to join grew? And if so, what kept you from cheating? So yes, I did after I got back from Iraq, I wanted to go there and it didn't pan out for me. I got valley fever back in two thousand four and lost a significant part of my lung capacity permanently. And from that point on physically, I, I don't believe that I was. At the capacity cardiovascular lead to be able to top rate even in the regular seal, team's let alone at Dev group. And so I spent the last couple years as an instructor getting as healed up as I could and then had to pull chocks on the navy. Otherwise I I would have stayed in, but that that's what happened. So John whistle says, what kiss KISS keep it simple, stupid situation do apply to your everyday life. I gotta tell you almost fucking everything. You know that that piece of advice has saved a lot of headaches for me in a lot of people. You know, a lot of times people say you're oversimplifying things. You know what sometimes life needs to be fucking over-simplified because we as human beings being the emotional fucking basket cases that we are need to over simplify things because we over complicate the shit out of it. So stop worrying about things. You can't control and just simplify it. You know, if you can. Control it, do your best with what you have, if you can't stop fucking worrying about it, it's really that simple. That's not oversimplifying it. Is that simple because that's the only thing you can do and have any control over. So stop fucking worrying about it and keep it simple. B-dubs wordy, Mike, Brian from New Zealand, who is the scariest motherfucker you've ever met in the teams? The person that would out Jaakko Jaakko I've met a lot of fucking guys in the seal teams that you know I would. I would lump into the category of just a scary, motherfucker me..
