    I can hear the horn how bad is it they
  • 0:45
    honk it is this they don't normally this
  • 0:48
    this Zephyr guy who drives it this way
  • 0:49
    isn't honking a horn like a maniac like
  • 0:52
    some of these Amtrak guys is this a
  • 0:55
    normal occurrence for this time of year
  • 0:56
    and in the northern Silicon Valley area
  • 0:59
    it happens okay well we may have had a
  • 1:03
    lot of fog recently just a little more
  • 1:05
    unusual I mean it goes back actually
  • 1:07
    harkens back into the seventies there's
  • 1:10
    a cycle of fog oh yes when we were all
  • 1:12
    going to die from global cooling cooling
  • 1:15
    and fogged I had fun reading the climate
  • 1:20
    report that came out on Friday get a
  • 1:24
    hold of it all I know is I have a report
  • 1:26
    yeah yes I have similar report I think
  • 1:31
    we'll just the girl says yes the report
  • 1:35
    just came out and I'm already reading
  • 1:39
    through it she's already read through it
  • 1:45
    it's okay I have the exact same one plus
  • 1:48
    play US government is releasing a major
  • 1:50
    highly anticipated and by the way how
  • 1:52
    mean how mean to release this when no
  • 1:55
    one is watching
  • 1:56
    oh stop why the US government its NOAA
  • 2:04
    that brought this out no man no man you
  • 2:08
    know who did that you know they released
  • 2:09
    that on Friday so that no one would see
  • 2:12
    it yeah I saw that I saw that bullcrap -
  • 2:14
    but good sounds means they really sound
  • 2:16
    frightening because there were news is
  • 2:18
    there's no news so this would get even
  • 2:19
    more areas yeah exactly sure and I think
  • 2:22
    it did the US government is releasing a
  • 2:24
    major highly anticipated report on
  • 2:26
    climate change
  • 2:27
    I like the highly-anticipated did you
  • 2:30
    even know it was coming out on Friday
  • 2:33
    in fact it's being made public right now
  • 2:36
    as we speak of this hour 2:00 p.m.
  • 2:38
    Eastern the congressionally mandated
  • 2:40
    report documents the human impact on
  • 2:44
    climate change and it's cost to the
  • 2:46
    economy now it could contain dire
  • 2:48
    threats that are at odds with President
  • 2:51
    Donald Trump's own environmental policy
  • 2:53
    and own pronouncements let's get right
  • 2:55
    to CNN's Renee Marsh for details she's
  • 2:58
    live in Washington so you were able to
  • 3:00
    take a quick look at this report it is
  • 3:03
    officially being put out in the 2 p.m.
  • 3:04
    hours so right now what new details are
  • 3:07
    we learning right so hallo you're right
  • 3:10
    I mean this report really literally
  • 3:12
    about a minute and 40 seconds ago what
  • 3:14
    the government report squarely focuses
  • 3:16
    on the human impact of climate change
  • 3:18
    for people here in the United States
  • 3:20
    using real-life examples stop watch yeah
  • 3:27
    are you kidding me
  • 3:29
    take through some of the quick
  • 3:30
    highlights that I was seeing in my first
  • 3:31
    read here it says people who are already
  • 3:34
    vulnerable is called the the executive
  • 3:37
    summary which is the first page which is
  • 3:39
    what all you ever read news media both
  • 3:41
    including low income and other
  • 3:43
    marginalized communities will feel the
  • 3:46
    impacts the most this report goes on to
  • 3:49
    talk about the health impact the
  • 3:50
    economic cost and the impact on
  • 3:52
    transportation infrastructure and it's
  • 3:55
    very specific
  • 3:56
    according to regions here in the United
  • 3:59
    States as it relates to the economic
  • 4:01
    impact the report
  • 4:04
    it's very specific according to regions
  • 4:08
    regions of the United States I think is
  • 4:12
    regions that that are making it specific
  • 4:14
    she was the worrier bids is very
  • 4:17
    specific regarding regions of the United
  • 4:19
    States perhaps but according to Regis
  • 4:22
    the reasons are not the authority that
  • 4:24
    are making it specific are you upset
  • 4:27
    about this report that somehow it's full
  • 4:29
    of crap I mean you're not really gonna
  • 4:30
    try and deconstruct this piece of crap
  • 4:33
    that basically just says we agree high
  • 4:36
    likelihood there's nothing new here
  • 4:38
    except there's nothing new here
  • 4:39
    extreme weather which you're witnessing
  • 4:41
    right now we're all gonna die a cost and
  • 4:44
    the impact on transportation
  • 4:45
    infrastructure and it's very specific
  • 4:49
    according to regions here in the United
  • 4:52
    States as it relates to the economic
  • 4:54
    impact the report says that the expected
  • 4:58
    the climate change is expected to cause
  • 5:00
    caused substantial net damage to the US
  • 5:03
    economy throughout this century annual
  • 5:06
    losses in some economic sectors are
  • 5:08
    projected to reach hundreds of billions
  • 5:11
    of dollars by the end of the century so
  • 5:13
    quite pricey that they also go on to say
  • 5:17
    the frequency of severity in allergic
  • 5:19
    illnesses including asthma and hay fever
  • 5:22
    are expected to increase as a result of
  • 5:25
    climate change more people will be
  • 5:28
    exposed to things like ticks carrying
  • 5:30
    Lyme disease mosquitoes that transmit
  • 5:32
    viruses like Zika West Nile virus and
  • 5:36
    dengue become more prominent when it
  • 5:39
    comes to agriculture and our food
  • 5:41
    sources it specifically talks about the
  • 5:45
    Midwest and it says increases in
  • 5:47
    temperatures during the growing season
  • 5:49
    season in the Midwest are projected to
  • 5:52
    be the largest contributing factor to
  • 5:55
    declines in productivity of US
  • 5:57
    agriculture and obviously that impacts
  • 6:00
    not just people in the United States but
  • 6:01
    as we export it impacts people who rely
  • 6:05
    on our export as well I mean this is a
  • 6:07
    lengthy report
  • 6:10
    that's pretty much the report we're all
  • 6:12
    gonna die if we don't hurry up
  • 6:15
    immediately and do something about it
  • 6:18
    there's similar report like this like in
  • 6:20
    the 80s and I mean we did every so often
  • 6:24
    on Twitter somebody digs up some old
  • 6:27
    article from some time in the past 10 20
  • 6:31
    years ago saying we're all gonna die and
  • 6:32
    it's gonna don't do something today
  • 6:34
    let's listen to CBS's version of the
  • 6:36
    report the extensive federal report
  • 6:39
    details how global warming from the
  • 6:41
    burning of coal oil and gas is impacting
  • 6:44
    each region of the country researchers
  • 6:47
    said climate related events are expected
  • 6:49
    to become more frequent and more intense
  • 6:51
    but President Trump's policies and
  • 6:53
    rhetoric often reject climate change his
  • 6:56
    administration has rolled back Obama era
  • 6:59
    environmental regulations and promoted
  • 7:02
    the production of fossil fuels though
  • 7:04
    we're getting out in June 2017 I was a
  • 7:12
    great little edit they did there the
  • 7:15
    production of fossil fuels though we're
  • 7:18
    getting out that's all it took for us to
  • 7:22
    leave the Paris climate Accord
  • 7:23
    apparently 17 the president pulled the
  • 7:26
    u.s. out of the Paris agreement a pact
  • 7:28
    of nearly 200 countries to curb climate
  • 7:31
    change nearly 200 countries to curb climate
  • 7:32
    last month mr. Trump dismissed global
  • 7:34
    warming on 60 minutes but what about the
  • 7:37
    scientists who say it's worse than ever
  • 7:41
    you have to show me the scientists
  • 7:43
    because they have a very big political
  • 7:45
    agenda and just this week President
  • 7:47
    Trump tweeted about East Coast cold
  • 7:49
    weather rioting brutal and extended cold
  • 7:52
    blasts could shatter all records
  • 7:54
    whatever happened to global warming
  • 7:56
    former vice president and
  • 7:58
    environmentalist Al Gore said the
  • 8:00
    president may try to hide the truth but
  • 8:03
    his own scientists and experts have made
  • 8:05
    it as stark and clear as possible gore
  • 8:16
    that I wanted to get because I think it
  • 8:18
    was worded peculiar peculiarly warming
  • 8:22
    former vice president
  • 8:23
    environmentalist Al Gore said the
  • 8:26
    president may try to hide the truth but
  • 8:28
    his own scientists and experts have made
  • 8:31
    it as stark and clear as possible okay
  • 8:35
    no sorry
  • 8:37
    well what is that mr. Bress heard okay
  • 8:39
    what gory the gore has been out there
  • 8:41
    saying oh it's not believable they tried
  • 8:43
    to tried to hide this tried to hide the
  • 8:45
    report it's his own scientists if
  • 8:47
    anybody's trying to hide anything it's
  • 8:49
    going his pressure group that keeps any
  • 8:52
    alternative opinion from coming on the
  • 8:55
    news the White House tried to dismiss
  • 8:57
    the report saying it is based on the
  • 8:59
    most extreme climate change scenario but
  • 9:02
    JB it is worth noting the administration
  • 9:04
    chose to release it today right after
  • 9:07
    Thanksgiving on the busiest shopping day
  • 9:09
    of the year yes oh my god hmm here's
  • 9:15
    what's interesting of course I went
  • 9:16
    through the report do we know that it
  • 9:19
    was trumps no you know what honestly I
  • 9:23
    don't care because every single time we
  • 9:26
    talk about stuff like that I get emails
  • 9:27
    and everyone's triggered and they're
  • 9:29
    people getting sick actually sick from
  • 9:32
    hearing the name Trump in news reports
  • 9:34
    that we play the Rhino but they're sick
  • 9:40
    people are getting sick and I want no
  • 9:42
    part of it so I'm not so I don't care I
  • 9:44
    don't care what I do care about is that
  • 9:49
    they say in this report it is going to
  • 9:52
    hurt poor people and marginalized groups
  • 9:55
    poor people and marginalized groups will
  • 9:58
    die sooner from this horrible horrible
  • 10:01
    catastrophe that's taking place the
  • 10:04
    crazy thing is is that the measures that
  • 10:08
    were agreed to in the Paris climate
  • 10:10
    Accord are being put in place in Europe
  • 10:14
    in places like France and the actual
  • 10:17
    people that these taxes these carbon
  • 10:20
    taxes are supposed to save are on the
  • 10:23
    streets burning the city of Paris
  • 10:25
    because they can't eat anymore
  • 10:30
    maybe the whole thing's a scheme to get
  • 10:32
    rid of the lower classes I mean there's
  • 10:35
    a report after report of Paris I'll play
  • 10:37
    one of them from CNN and no we're not
  • 10:40
    for a moment
  • 10:41
    does anyone mention that the hike in
  • 10:44
    fuel price is a is because of the
  • 10:47
    implementation of carbon taxes they just
  • 10:51
    don't even say it I want to take you to
  • 10:53
    Paris now stunning pictures coming out
  • 10:55
    of there protesters filling the most
  • 10:56
    famous street in France the iconic
  • 10:58
    sean's out is a with fire and explosions
  • 11:03
    in a second weekend of protest the usual
  • 11:07
    scene of tourists and Parisians enjoying
  • 11:09
    cafes and luxury shops replaced by
  • 11:12
    burning vehicles as 8,000 protesters
  • 11:15
    clashed with 3,000 police in riot gear
  • 11:18
    the demonstrators who call themselves
  • 11:19
    the yellow vests are angry over rising
  • 11:22
    fuel prices now police used tear gas and
  • 11:24
    water cannon in an attempt to break up
  • 11:26
    these demonstrations CNN's jim
  • 11:28
    bittermann is joining us now from Paris
  • 11:30
    Jim tell us why these protesters are so
  • 11:33
    angry well I think it started off as a
  • 11:36
    fuel protest a week if your honor but in
  • 11:38
    fact over the last few days it's
  • 11:40
    generalized a lot really he doesn't even
  • 11:44
    give us the truth why they're angry
  • 11:47
    well that's CNN in fact he sounds like
  • 11:49
    Norm Macdonald doing it people are just
  • 11:53
    dissatisfied with a macron government
  • 11:55
    his approval rating has dropped
  • 11:57
    I'm worried about the rising cost of
  • 12:00
    living about pension payments that
  • 12:02
    aren't really making ends meet so it's
  • 12:05
    just a generalized anger about the state
  • 12:07
    of the economy and of course macro
  • 12:09
    imperson macro has vowed to continue
  • 12:12
    forward on his his ideas of reforming
  • 12:16
    the economy here Sophie and what instead
  • 12:19
    of explaining what reforming the economy
  • 12:20
    means the idea is a new Green Deal it's
  • 12:25
    the the green economy that he supposedly
  • 12:29
    kick-starting by penalizing people do
  • 12:32
    you know price of diesel now I now I'm
  • 12:37
    not sure if it's diesel or regular
  • 12:38
    petrol one of the two diesel diesel
  • 12:40
    whenever 30 30
  • 12:42
    before take contradicts your report a
  • 12:44
    little bit come on went up 30 cents they
  • 12:48
    are now paying the equivalent of seven
  • 12:50
    dollars per gallon seems a bit high I
  • 12:56
    think people just had enough and they
  • 12:58
    heard a lot of people say that today you
  • 13:00
    heard a lot of people calling for Mac
  • 13:02
    Rawls resignation now here on the shows
  • 13:04
    that he say this is not the scene you
  • 13:06
    would expect on the Saturday night
  • 13:07
    following Black Friday you would think
  • 13:09
    there'd be a lot of people out in that
  • 13:11
    sort of thing people today were
  • 13:13
    protestors throughout the day and only
  • 13:15
    about an hour ago it or so did the
  • 13:17
    police make a move with an Asst major
  • 13:20
    assault on the avenue here with multiple
  • 13:22
    trucks and hundreds of police to clear
  • 13:24
    away the demonstrators and for the most
  • 13:26
    part they've succeeded there are still a
  • 13:28
    few pockets of resistance along here we
  • 13:31
    haven't heard from a colonel
  • 13:32
    all day until very late this evening
  • 13:34
    when he put out this tweet he said
  • 13:36
    thanks to all the law enforcement you
  • 13:38
    expect that but he said shame on all the
  • 13:40
    people who assaulted them shame on those
  • 13:42
    who voluntarily assaulted citizens and
  • 13:45
    reporters shame on those who tried to
  • 13:47
    intimidate our elected officials so you
  • 13:50
    have him taking a very kind of
  • 13:52
    professorial perhaps paternalistic
  • 13:54
    challenge something that he's been
  • 13:55
    criticized for in the past okay I'd love
  • 13:58
    to hear your case first before you play
  • 14:01
    in my tab which I believe is from CBS's
  • 14:04
    so many more which they do mention these
  • 14:06
    issues that you say CNN didn't mention
  • 14:09
    mention I've never heard that CNN clip
  • 14:11
    before I will say based on what I know
  • 14:14
    I'm based on this other clip than based
  • 14:16
    on what's really going on CNN should be
  • 14:18
    ashamed of itself that's a bullcrap
  • 14:21
    report all of them from CNN are like
  • 14:23
    that every single one of them it's
  • 14:25
    getting worse at that place why are they
  • 14:30
    doubling down on this I don't know see
  • 14:33
    here play this is a French fuel tax
  • 14:35
    protest anger continues to grow over the
  • 14:38
    country's rising fuel taxes thousands
  • 14:40
    across France are also protesting

    president manuel macrons administration
  • 14:44
    McCrone has defended the fuel tax saying
  • 14:46
    there necessary to wean the country off
  • 14:48
    fossil fuels least
  • 14:50
    Handley from our partners at the BBC
  • 14:52
    reports I'm sorry just just I don't know
  • 14:58
    if they come back to it in this report
  • 14:59
    when he says the fuel tax is necessary
  • 15:02
    to wean people off fossil fuels that's
  • 15:05
    not quite the same as saying it's your
  • 15:07
    carbon tax which I believe it is
  • 15:11
    so now is just saying it's a
  • 15:12
    disincentive is that is that the message
  • 15:14
    this is anything but at least are a
  • 15:17
    little closer to the truth here then
  • 15:19
    your report which was shameful a sea of
  • 15:22
    yellow the protesters in their trademark
  • 15:24
    hy-vee's jackets on the shores ELISA
  • 15:29
    [Music] jackets on the shores ELISA
  • 15:31
    your sorties mean business - using water
  • 15:34
    cannon and tear gas against the
  • 15:36
    thousands of protesters trying to
  • 15:38
    prevent them moving down to the palais
  • 15:40
    de la concorde and the presidential
  • 15:42
    palace which has been cordoned off
  • 15:46
    organizers bill this is act 2 in their
  • 15:48
    rolling campaign hold on a second i read
  • 15:52
    everywhere that there was no real
  • 15:54
    organizers that it was something that
  • 15:57
    originated on the internet and it wasn't
  • 15:59
    it was a new kind of protest well let's
  • 16:03
    look at reality here with the protest we
  • 16:07
    always have there are always organizers
  • 16:10
    yeah it's just I saw report after report
  • 16:13
    that there was no central organization
  • 16:16
    it was organic kind of like our spring
  • 16:22
    organisers bill this is act 2 in there
  • 16:24
    rolling campaign that angry about an
  • 16:27
    increase in diesel tax justified by the
  • 16:29
    government as an anti-pollution levy but
  • 16:34
    the campaign has grown into a broad
  • 16:36
    opposition against president and manuel
  • 16:38
    macro this metal worker says we feel
  • 16:42
    like we've been working for years now
  • 16:44
    and it's just extortion while members of
  • 16:46
    the government live like princes it's
  • 16:50
    not even possible to live anymore after
  • 16:52
    paying taxes says this woman I'm
  • 16:54
    disgusted I'm telling you if I saw him I
  • 16:57
    wouldn't be able to shake his hand and
  • 16:59
    I'd tell him exactly what I think some
  • 17:02
    here have been ripping up the street and
  • 17:04
    trying to build barricades
  • 17:08
    but as protesters let off fireworks the
  • 17:11
    authorities have the power to move them
  • 17:13
    on before we talk about this I have a
  • 17:16
    similar report from euronews with men
  • 17:19
    honest men and women on the street which
  • 17:21
    kind of fills this in and I think it'll
  • 17:23
    make sense for and before you go there I
  • 17:27
    want to mention what you're going to do
  • 17:28
    is promote the idea that the nonsense in
  • 17:32
    the report that came out here that it's
  • 17:34
    going that if we don't do anything it's
  • 17:37
    going to hurt the lower classes yes this
  • 17:39
    is evidence of what's where they are
  • 17:41
    doing stuff and it's hurting the lower
  • 17:43
    classes because they're doing this and
  • 17:46
    that was exactly like a very tense day
  • 17:49
    on the shows a nice day in Paris clashes
  • 17:52
    erupted between police and some yellow
  • 17:54
    vests authorities used water cannons and
  • 17:56
    tear gas for several hours in order to
  • 17:59
    counter the most radical protesters
  • 18:01
    while many regret these incidents others
  • 18:04
    believe these methods are the only way
  • 18:06
    to be heard by their government
  • 18:11
    interesting how every single report
  • 18:13
    regardless of organization has that one
  • 18:15
    explosion in it that your clip had it I
  • 18:18
    had a clip with the explosion this is
  • 18:20
    the second clip with the explosion they
  • 18:22
    just edit it right had the explosion
  • 18:24
    yeah I think there's one explosion and
  • 18:25
    everybody used it just put it in as a
  • 18:27
    little little
  • 18:34
    honestly what they think they're doing
  • 18:36
    there are certainly some rioters but
  • 18:39
    we're not responsible for that we're
  • 18:40
    just here to be heard the problem in
  • 18:43
    France is that we don't have a choice if
  • 18:45
    we want something we need to fight for
  • 18:47
    it want something we need to fight for
  • 18:47
    they don't listen to us anymore
  • 18:49
    Emmanuelle McCall was the main target of
  • 18:51
    the thousands of yellow vests gathered
  • 18:53
    this Saturday but apart from the
  • 18:55
    president the whole French political
  • 18:57
    class is criticized by the demonstrators
  • 19:00
    I'm demonstrating because it's not
  • 19:02
    possible anymore unretired and we can't
  • 19:04
    make ends meet anymore it's not possible
  • 19:06
    and I don't understand why the members
  • 19:08
    of parliament the senators have all
  • 19:10
    these privileges we don't diminish their
  • 19:11
    salaries who do they think we are
  • 19:17
    Society is that why our ancestors fought
  • 19:20
    I love this guy he translated the French
  • 19:23
    guy we the dogs of French society yes
  • 19:31
    is that why our ancestors fought but you
  • 19:33
    what started off as a movement against
  • 19:35
    taxes on fuel morphed into a larger
  • 19:38
    gathering against other types of tax as
  • 19:40
    well as to denounce the cost of living
  • 19:42
    in France and social inequalities but
  • 19:45
    without the central structure nor
  • 19:47
    official representatives the yellow
  • 19:49
    vests seemed divided over what to do
  • 19:51
    next before in the Samba seat when we
  • 19:54
    need a citizens assembly citizens need
  • 19:57
    to make the votes referendums we're the
  • 19:58
    one now that we've started rising up we
  • 20:03
    need to step up the movement macron
  • 20:05
    won't stop until we face them with a
  • 20:07
    general strike clearly ah there it is
  • 20:09
    that's what's coming next general strike
  • 20:12
    and so it's clearly there's a little
  • 20:15
    more going on than just the fuel price I
  • 20:17
    would say migration maybe working some
  • 20:19
    people and just the overall economy in
  • 20:23
    general and just the overall economy in
  • 20:25
    just a couple of things I find
  • 20:26
    interesting about this which isn't it's
  • 20:28
    covered a little bit but it's not
  • 20:30
    covered well here one is they call it a
  • 20:35
    pollution tax don't love that yes when
  • 20:38
    we would tell my carbon pollution carbon
  • 20:41
    tax now is maliciously used as terms
  • 20:43
    because this and it should be carbon
  • 20:46
    carbon dioxide but they've just moved
  • 20:48
    that to carbon just to make it yes
  • 20:49
    narbon dioxide tax yes is like you don't
  • 20:52
    drink soda I like the idea of these guys
  • 20:56
    wearing these yellow kind of Street
  • 20:59
    workers vests now this is a mandatory
  • 21:02
    item if for your automobile in France so
  • 21:06
    is it yes you must have a yellow
  • 21:08
    emergency vest in your vehicle at all
  • 21:10
    times that's not a bad idea I think I
  • 21:14
    don't know if it's mandatory in Britain
  • 21:15
    but I know pretty much everybody has
  • 21:17
    that I should do that here but I like
  • 21:21
    the idea of everybody wearing these
  • 21:22
    things idea of everybody wearing these
  • 21:23
    well what's cool about it is you could
  • 21:24
    create a global movement of yellow vests
  • 21:27
    yellow jackets whatever we want to call
  • 21:28
    it like yellow vests is a vest and this
  • 21:31
    is happening now I think it was
  • 21:34
    happening in Belgium I believe somewhere
  • 21:36
    in the south of the Netherlands this was
  • 21:37
    happening and people are putting on
  • 21:39
    yellow vest it's small so it's not it's
  • 21:41
    not you know - this proportion yet it's
  • 21:43
    not on the show um cities a with the Arc
  • 21:45
    de Triomphe in the blood there's stuff
  • 21:48
    they're showing on CBS there was
  • 21:49
    thousands and thousands of people with
  • 21:51
    his yellow vest yes exactly but I'm
  • 21:53
    saying the ones in in other parts of
  • 21:55
    Europe are starting to do the same thing
  • 21:56
    yellow vests mean is is happening I
  • 21:59
    think it's a good one yeah that was you
  • 22:02
    didn't get to see because it was pretty
  • 22:04
    visual they just kind of mentioned it
  • 22:06
    and passing in the CBS report was the
  • 22:08
    fact that they're literally digging up
  • 22:10
    the street yes
  • 22:14
    I know it's great well yeah so but they
  • 22:20
    have a little more power there I mean in
  • 22:22
    the United States is actually punished I
  • 22:24
    think is a felony and it's punishable by
  • 22:26
    all kinds of horrible things if you do
  • 22:28
    it if you even advocate a general strike
  • 22:30
    is that the strikes are illegal in this
  • 22:33
    country is that so oh yeah we can't have
  • 22:35
    a general strike in United States okay
  • 22:38
    go try promoting want to see it but what
  • 22:41
    happens - knocks on the door huh that's
  • 22:44
    illegal isn't that freedom of speech
  • 22:46
    can't I say whatever I want you talking
  • 22:49
    to the wrong guy
  • 22:50
    [Music] the wrong guy
  • 22:52
    well that's something it needs to be
  • 22:53
    looked up uh you can look it I think it
  • 22:57
    began I think it was either under the
  • 22:59
    roses I think maybe the Roosevelt
  • 23:01
    administration is the one who promoted
  • 23:03
    that because they were having so much
  • 23:04
    trouble with the longshoremen and some
  • 23:06
    of these really powerful unions we used
  • 23:08
    to have hmm
  • 23:10
    but yeah general strikes are know you
  • 23:12
    can't do one you can't call one in a
  • 23:14
    local area they're thinking about this
  • 23:17
    in San Francisco some years back over
  • 23:18
    some something some complained and
  • 23:20
    didn't get first well you need a general
  • 23:22
    strike if it's labor unions who are
  • 23:24
    organizing it that's that's what you
  • 23:26
    mean by a general strike if it was a
  • 23:28
    general strike is where everybody stops
  • 23:30
    working strike is where everybody stops
  • 23:31
    yeah but you say it's illegal to to
  • 23:35
    organize that or just illegal to stop
  • 23:38
    working I'm not quite sure with thee
  • 23:39
    it's illegal to organize it right but I
  • 23:42
    think it's illegal to organize it if you
  • 23:44
    were a union not if you're Adam curry
  • 23:45
    podcaster no I call a general call for a
  • 23:51
    general strike
  • 23:54
    please bail me out
  • 23:58
    I need to look this up I'm not sigh
  • 24:00
    sounds general strikes just look up
  • 24:02
    general strike I'm trying to find that I
  • 24:04
    cannot find anything that says it's
  • 24:06
    illegal a general strike is illegal Utz
  • 24:09
    I can only find it in combination with
  • 24:11
    the NL NLRB the National Labor Relations
  • 24:15
    Board their section 8 prohibits that the
  • 24:19
    general strike organized by labor
  • 24:21
    organizations but I'm not so sure I mean
  • 24:24
    I can organize anything I want well it's
  • 24:28
    possible that that if you weren't in a
  • 24:30
    labor union and you organized the
  • 24:31
    general strike you might get away with
  • 24:33
    it but far as I know well for one thing
  • 24:35
    that's never gonna happen
  • 24:36
    mm-hmm but yeah we'll look into will
  • 24:40
    report further interesting
  • 24:45
    but yeah I don't think it will happen
  • 24:47
    but it's just it's interesting to me the
  • 24:50
    disservice that everyone's getting here
  • 24:52
    is like you know this report is being
  • 24:54
    touted as oh my god it's gonna hurt all
  • 24:55
    the poor people but the exact same
  • 24:58
    recommendations that are in in the
  • 25:00
    United States congressionally mandated
  • 25:02
    report are the ones that people are
  • 25:05
    riding over in France
  • 25:06
    weirdly some of them yeah that's not the
  • 25:09
    elites that are rioting
  • 25:11
    no no but French do have this odd
  • 25:15
    history of chopping people's heads off
  • 25:18
    that they did they take their their
  • 25:21
    protests pretty seriously yeah
  • 25:24
    so yeah well they put it seems as though
  • 25:27
    they get to a boiling point and just go
  • 25:31
    nuts well there's one other one other
  • 25:35
    thing that may be playing into playing
  • 25:38
    into all of this and it's something that
  • 25:40
    is not reported
  • 25:42
    at all here in fact I haven't heard much
  • 25:44
    of it only in the Netherlands that I did
  • 25:47
    it get my attention this is the Global
  • 25:49
    Compact for migration
  • 25:53
    which of course you know neither of us
  • 25:55
    had heard of this this oh no we've heard
  • 25:57
    we've we talked about this some time ago
  • 25:58
    this is a while back right but but it's
  • 26:02
    it's now been agreed to this thing past
  • 26:04
    and what that means is it's just it's
  • 26:06
    just an agreement it's not legally
  • 26:08
    binding except in multiple Europe
  • 26:11
    European countries including the
  • 26:14
    Netherlands in there in their
  • 26:16
    constitution that ground laws as they
  • 26:19
    call them the you know the bit there
  • 26:20
    basis laws it's clearly states I think
  • 26:23
    it's article 94 that any European
  • 26:29
    agreement or treaty supersedes national
  • 26:33
    national laws and people in the
  • 26:36
    Netherlands are very upset about this
  • 26:40
    okay expecting well I'm telling you
  • 26:43
    they're in the EU but here's here's what
  • 26:46
    the compact says refugees and migrants
  • 26:50
    are entitled the same universal human
  • 26:52
    rights and fundamental freedoms which
  • 26:53
    must be respected protected and
  • 26:55
    fulfilled at all times
  • 26:56
    however migrants and refugees are
  • 26:59
    distinct groups governed by separate
  • 27:00
    legal frameworks only refugees are
  • 27:03
    entitled to specific international
  • 27:04
    protection as defined by international
  • 27:06
    refugee law this Global Compact refers
  • 27:08
    to migrants and presents a cooperative
  • 27:11
    framework addressing migration in all
  • 27:13
    its dimensions I could go through every
  • 27:17
    single article and what this came up in
  • 27:20
    the conversation because Trump refused
  • 27:23
    to sign on to this commercial agreement
  • 27:25
    and there's a big stink about it yes and
  • 27:27
    then kind of passed by and that we've
  • 27:31
    long has forgotten about it now it's
  • 27:32
    back in the news I guess because other
  • 27:34
    people are starting to look at it yeah
  • 27:36
    and this is the United Nations compact a
  • 27:38
    part of the 2030 agenda for sustainable
  • 27:41
    development and of course it says that
  • 27:44
    because of natural disasters the adverse
  • 27:46
    effects of climate change and
  • 27:48
    environmental degradation we will see
  • 27:50
    huge migration they keep promising this
  • 27:53
    and the entire idea is when people are
  • 27:57
    on the move you sign up to the compact
  • 27:58
    and you basically can't stop them from
  • 28:00
    coming into your country
  • 28:02
    and that's what people are worried about
  • 28:04
    and again not mentioned in any of the
  • 28:06
    reports about Paris I think that also
  • 28:09
    may have something to do with it I don't
  • 28:10
    know about French law but you know as
  • 28:13
    you point out slike base United Nations
  • 28:15
    they all sign on to it or not everyone
  • 28:18
    who signed on yet actually but once
  • 28:20
    you're in then you're in and then you
  • 28:22
    got to let it happen so you know this
  • 28:24
    this migrant the migrant issue is a
  • 28:30
    problem migrant the migrant issue is a
  • 28:34
    well it seems to be a yes it will curse
  • 28:36
    the compact will ensure migrants working
  • 28:39
    in the informal economy which is not
  • 28:43
    defined in this document but I guess
  • 28:44
    that means running drugs hookers black
  • 28:48
    cabs sure migrants working in the
  • 28:51
    informal economy have safe access to
  • 28:53
    effective reporting complaint and
  • 28:55
    redress mechanisms in case of
  • 28:57
    exploitation abuse or violations of
  • 28:59
    their rights in the workplace in a
  • 29:00
    manner that does not exacerbate
  • 29:02
    vulnerabilities of migrants that
  • 29:03
    denounce such incidents and allow them
  • 29:05
    to participate in respective legal
  • 29:06
    proceedings whether in the country of
  • 29:08
    origin or destination so you can start
  • 29:11
    shit before you even roll yeah this is
  • 29:16
    really it's really quite quite stunning
  • 29:18
    this document develop procedures and
  • 29:21
    agreements on search and rescue of
  • 29:22
    migrants which now is happening is you
  • 29:25
    know nongovernmental organizations are
  • 29:27
    doing this they're actually going as
  • 29:28
    close as they can to for instance Libya
  • 29:30
    off the coast and pick them up save them
  • 29:33
    there and bring them back the primary
  • 29:36
    objective of this is to protect migrants
  • 29:38
    right to life that uphold the
  • 29:39
    prohibition of collective expulsion
  • 29:41
    guaranteed due process an individual
  • 29:43
    assessment enhanced reception enhanced
  • 29:46
    reception what is it what is it
  • 29:48
    directional antenna enhanced reception
  • 30:00
    and assistance capacities and ensure
  • 30:02
    that the provision of assistance is an
  • 30:04
    exclusively humanitarian nature for
  • 30:07
    migrants and is not considered unlawful
  • 30:09
    and I put the thing in the show notes
  • 30:11
    and I'm gonna go take a look at it but
  • 30:13
    you get the gist and the Dutch are very
  • 30:15
    at least the ones that will email me
  • 30:18
    about it now seem to be very concerned
  • 30:20
    about this
  • 30:22
    should be yeah
  • 30:26
    is interesting at the same time when
  • 30:28
    Hillary Clinton and I have that clip
  • 30:32
    with her interview in The Guardian I
  • 30:34
    don't have her talking but I do have the
  • 30:36
    report okay yeah where is it
  • 30:38
    yes it's very interesting that this
  • 30:41
    comes into play the minute we have this
  • 30:43
    Global Compact coming into vision and
  • 30:45
    this is what she tells The Guardian
  • 30:47
    Hillary Clinton has called on European
  • 30:49
    leaders to curb mass migration to the
  • 30:52
    continent to curb mass migration to the
  • 30:52
    she says it's helped spread right-wing
  • 30:55
    populism in an interview in the British
  • 30:57
    newspaper The Guardian published today
  • 30:59
    the former Democratic presidential
  • 31:01
    candidate and Secretary of State warned
  • 31:03
    if we don't deal with the migration
  • 31:05
    issue it will continue to roil the body
  • 31:08
    politic it will continue to roil the body
  • 31:09
    she said it lit the flame for racist
  • 31:12
    political ideologies in Euro of course
  • 31:14
    Clinton's comments sparked outrage and
  • 31:16
    confusion from immigration activists and
  • 31:18
    European lawmakers who cited her long
  • 31:20
    track record of welcoming immigrants
  • 31:23
    yeah I'm not quite sure how that all
  • 31:25
    works it was very very strange
  • 31:29
    and then finally Serling did he at the
  • 31:31
    end he says if you find old clips of
  • 31:34
    heard bitching about the Mexicans coming
  • 31:36
    across the border horse of course so
  • 31:38
    there's no consistency here but this you
  • 31:41
    know if she's gonna play the game of
  • 31:43
    being a progressive neoliberal even
  • 31:46
    though there's some self contradiction
  • 31:48
    there she has to stand one side of the
  • 31:51
    fence with the other she can't be saying
  • 31:53
    stuff like this
  • 31:55
    yeah I'm not sure I'm not sure and
  • 31:57
    infused John Kerry was also quoted in
  • 32:00
    some European publication saying similar
  • 32:02
    stuff like uh-huh
  • 32:05
    very odd maybe maybe these people still
  • 32:09
    think that when they do an interview
  • 32:10
    overseas that we don't see it here is
  • 32:12
    that possible that they did that dense
  • 32:14
    that's your long-standing theory maybe
  • 32:19
    it could be could be hmm
  • 32:26
    okay yes that I don't have much more
  • 32:29
    from from Euro land yeah I think I have
  • 32:33
    something else um oh yes I do actually
  • 32:38
    I'm sorry it's a short clip you know I
  • 32:40
    have several friends in the United
  • 32:43
    Kingdom and they always like now
  • 32:44
    whenever there's a mass shooting they
  • 32:46
    always like to send me a link and say
  • 32:47
    how are those guns working out for you
  • 32:49
    and I'm not kidding they love doing that
  • 32:52
    me laughs the Brits in particular knife
  • 32:55
    crime is at an all-time high
  • 32:57
    particularly in London you know four or
  • 33:01
    five people stabbed today many fatal
  • 33:04
    okay now find but the latest is this i
  • 33:08
    love this and i think the the police you
  • 33:11
    know the British police famous word back
  • 33:14
    in the day the bobbies never had didn't
  • 33:16
    digit a club Club and a helmet didn't
  • 33:18
    have any weapons that's changed and now
  • 33:20
    we have this new issue
  • 33:23
    people swiping mobile phones while on
  • 33:26
    their moped so of course it's easy prey
  • 33:29
    because you know as we know everyone's
  • 33:32
    on their minds on their phone holding it
  • 33:34
    the hell they're walking around they got
  • 33:36
    two of them it's very easy to grab that
  • 33:38
    so along comes a moped BAM grams grab
  • 33:41
    your iPhone your you know $1300 handheld
  • 33:44
    computer and now the police have figured
  • 33:47
    out a way to go after it it's too bad we
  • 33:49
    don't have video for once on the show
  • 33:50
    but you'll get the gist of how they are
  • 33:52
    going after these moped their cellphone
  • 33:54
    robbers London Metropolitan Police are
  • 33:56
    tackling criminals on motorbikes in a
  • 33:59
    new way specially trained drivers are
  • 34:01
    using police cars to knock them off
  • 34:03
    their two wheels or they're forcing them
  • 34:05
    to crash Scotland Yard has released this
  • 34:08
    footage showing how they're pursuing and
  • 34:10
    ramming into the thieves senior officers
  • 34:13
    at Scotland Yard
  • 34:14
    say there's no maximum speed at which
  • 34:16
    police vehicles might hit motorcycles a
  • 34:18
    judge says the policies for officers to
  • 34:21
    assess the risks of a particular chase
  • 34:23
    and make a judgment accordingly police
  • 34:26
    say it's a miss that they won't chase
  • 34:27
    riders who have removed their helmets it
  • 34:30
    comes after thousands of mobile phones
  • 34:33
    have been reported stolen by people on
  • 34:35
    scooters nice and the video is fantastic
  • 34:38
    there rear-ending these guys and they
  • 34:40
    had like rear end someone on the
  • 34:41
    motorbike and the guy flies over the
  • 34:43
    hood of the cop car they brake he slams
  • 34:45
    off is fantastic yeah no yeah no yeah no
  • 34:49
    there is I've seen this is pretty funny
  • 34:53
    right and they're hitting it from this
  • 34:57
    guy and it could cop in a car cuz a
  • 35:00
    boring job anyway generally hey there's
  • 35:03
    a moped guy go run him over I cannot
  • 35:09
    imagine that wouldn't be not that would
  • 35:12
    not be accepted in the United States
  • 35:14
    I can't imagine no way I don't think
  • 35:17
    anyone would say that's okay now I'm
  • 35:19
    sure somewhere along the line these
  • 35:22
    idiots decided that if they took their
  • 35:24
    helmet off and throw it out you know
  • 35:31
    throw it right and it seems to me with
  • 35:35
    that kind of it that
  • 35:36
    set up the cops would say here's a guy
  • 35:38
    with no helmet get him yeah yeah exactly
  • 35:41
    no it's fantastic just fantastic
  • 35:45
    yeah he's you know I think we may see
  • 35:49
    more crime with these East Cooter's
  • 35:51
    wasn't there an article about some guy
  • 35:54
    who escaped the cops on one of those at
  • 35:56
    Bird bikes on the East guter the
  • 35:58
    electric scooter dad this I missed yes
  • 36:01
    well actually had an interesting
  • 36:04
    Thanksgiving conversation with some of
  • 36:07
    the Millennials here and there was a
  • 36:09
    point I hadn't thought about is with all
  • 36:12
    of these electric scooters and just if
  • 36:15
    you don't know I'm talking about us like
  • 36:16
    the kids you know step along scooters
  • 36:19
    that are motorized these things are
  • 36:22
    being created and built at an incredible
  • 36:24
    rate that just being pumped out they're
  • 36:25
    all built in China they have huge
  • 36:28
    lithium-ion batteries either on the
  • 36:31
    front post or underneath you gotta ask
  • 36:35
    how long will it take before Mundy's
  • 36:37
    turns into essentially a flying bomb
  • 36:40
    this is explode you hit something hard
  • 36:43
    enough you'd Ministry's have this
  • 36:45
    tendency if you're poorly made then if
  • 36:46
    you disrupt them with a with you know
  • 36:48
    some kind of impact I don't know 15 to
  • 36:52
    20 miles now or should probably do it I
  • 36:54
    think we'll be seeing these reports
  • 36:56
    pretty soon
  • 36:57
    yes misprediction yeah and it should be
  • 37:01
    a terrorism threat
  • 37:03
    really yes I think it should be a
  • 37:06
    terrorism thing I think these easy
  • 37:08
    scooters are terrorist devices
  • 37:12
    Black Friday yes I have a clip if you
  • 37:15
    want to intro it with sharing with the
  • 37:16
    clip PBS the Black Friday report yes I
  • 37:19
    would like to do that millions of
  • 37:20
    Americans spent this Black Friday
  • 37:22
    swarming stores and scouring websites
  • 37:24
    for deals the retail data firm shopper
  • 37:27
    track estimates today's sales will hit
  • 37:29
    twenty three billion dollars that's up
  • 37:32
    more than two billion dollars from last
  • 37:34
    year across the country retailers saw
  • 37:36
    the annual rush of shoppers bursting
  • 37:39
    through their doors before sunrise
  • 37:40
    scrambling for discounts the vents took
  • 37:43
    a violent turn near Birmingham Alabama
  • 37:45
    an argument between two men at a mall
  • 37:48
    there ended in gunfire police shot and
  • 37:51
    killed the suspected shooter an eighteen
  • 37:53
    year old that a 12 year old bystander
  • 37:55
    were wounded now I tried to look around
  • 38:00
    to get some video your typical
  • 38:02
    Thanksgiving Day footage and there were
  • 38:05
    I didn't see didn't seem like there any
  • 38:06
    big records of people you know trampling
  • 38:09
    each other just didn't have the same
  • 38:10
    vibe as it used to oh we had a lot of
  • 38:13
    good the same vibe here I didn't get it
  • 38:15
    horse here didn't get here mostly is off
  • 38:18
    it's you know people are all doing it
  • 38:20
    online this year doing it all online
  • 38:22
    shopping online though that's the
  • 38:24
    reports I got no reports was the same as
  • 38:27
    usual when they said it was up two
  • 38:28
    billion which is a lot which should
  • 38:30
    actually help things but my favorite
  • 38:33
    thing which I didn't think got enough
  • 38:35
    fruit care of news I put a picture in
  • 38:38
    the newsletter of the free shipping of
  • 38:42
    the guy dressed in a bear costume that
  • 38:47
    get more coverage I don't know the guy
  • 38:50
    in the bear costume so it looks like a
  • 38:52
    cuffed polar bear you know I think that
  • 38:54
    the Black Friday has gotten to a point
  • 38:56
    in the US media where every report is
  • 39:01
    probably sponsored it's like they have a
  • 39:03
    choice of going anywhere and they might
  • 39:05
    as well say hey everything is good over
  • 39:06
    here well say hey everything is good over
  • 39:06
    I'm looking to come look at Walmart or
  • 39:08
    what it just seems like it's native
  • 39:10
    advertising at this point you know I ran
  • 39:13
    into a native would ie after after the
  • 39:15
    fact I did this research there was a in
  • 39:17
    Atlantic and people can look this up if
  • 39:19
    you like if you like southern cooking
  • 39:21
    and you can't could do a decent biscuit
  • 39:24
    there's an article on why we can't
  • 39:26
    good biscuits and it refers to
  • 39:28
    specifically soft red wheat from the
  • 39:31
    South that is sold as all-purpose wheat
  • 39:35
    and self-rising wheat the kind of wheat
  • 39:37
    they sell by these various vendors down
  • 39:39
    there it is different than the northern
  • 39:41
    wheats which will not make a decent
  • 39:43
    biscuit we listen to a long I was still
  • 39:47
    on Black Friday what are you doing no
  • 39:50
    I'm going on that gone Black Friday in a
  • 39:53
    roundabout way I'm gonna just
  • 39:56
    reasserting a point you just made
  • 39:59
    ok about native advertising
  • 40:04
    you said to reiterate that it seems as
  • 40:06
    though all these reports aren't really
  • 40:08
    about like Friday they're about some you
  • 40:10
    know and I think this has been true for
  • 40:11
    a few years because they talk about
  • 40:13
    Kmart and all these other you know
  • 40:15
    Walmart did you find another one of
  • 40:17
    those secret shopper stories you know
  • 40:19
    the secret donor who donated they always
  • 40:22
    do that not find that sir but let me
  • 40:23
    finish my I since I started a biscuit
  • 40:25
    story should finish it so at the end of
  • 40:29
    the article they go on and on about this
  • 40:32
    one wheat lily-white
  • 40:35
    made out of some southern state
  • 40:38
    completely ignoring because I did some
  • 40:40
    research afterwards and I found about
  • 40:42
    ten of these companies that made a soft
  • 40:45
    wheat flour in the South in Kentucky and
  • 40:48
    elsewhere but no she has this one and
  • 40:52
    then she says and it's only available on
  • 40:54
    Amazon and I'm reading this thing and
  • 40:59
    thinking about the fact that you know
  • 41:00
    all these other products that you can
  • 41:01
    get directly you can buy you can you can
  • 41:04
    look it up and you can find guys wait we
  • 41:06
    didn't Myers or some company in Kentucky
  • 41:09
    seems like a good deal cheaper and
  • 41:11
    better and it's got a long history from
  • 41:14
    the 1860s but this was like I'm reading
  • 41:18
    this it seems like a real article about
  • 41:20
    something and then it boils down to
  • 41:22
    Amazon's the only one who carry is that
  • 41:24
    you have to buy from them I of course
  • 41:27
    and I'm thinking this is ridiculous
  • 41:30
    there's no I just was very I was very
  • 41:33
    orchitis no I just was very I was very
  • 41:34
    yeah people are going to be very sad
  • 41:36
    once they figure out that Amazon has
  • 41:38
    taken over everything there no more
  • 41:40
    local retail shops mom-and-pop is dead
  • 41:44
    literally retail shops mom-and-pop is dead
  • 41:46
    it's gonna be it's gonna be upsetting
  • 41:48
    that I think that we in looking at
  • 41:51
    Google as the true evil Corp I think
  • 41:54
    it's Amazon Amazon is probably a lot
  • 41:57
    more evil than Google well at this point
  • 42:00
    I'd say yesterday now Black Friday I'm
  • 42:04
    is Lu's gonna stop using him oh I'm I'm
  • 42:07
    really trying to diminish my use it's
  • 42:10
    very difficult when you send me links to
  • 42:12
    the SSD drive where else would you get
  • 42:16
    those products that's what I'm saying
  • 42:17
    it's very hard it's already very hard
  • 42:19
    but I I do try I do try to I'm failing
  • 42:23
    but I try I tried to get stuff at other
  • 42:25
    outlets online but it's hard you know
  • 42:30
    it's it's it's the the 800-pound gorilla
  • 42:33
    now back to Black Friday so as far as I
  • 42:37
    understood from the reports we had one
  • 42:41
    [Music] from the reports we had one
  • 42:43
    one fatal shooting yeah sounds about
  • 42:46
    right fatal shooting yeah sounds about
  • 42:46
    let's see how everything was in in
  • 42:49
    Europe where we also have Black Friday
  • 42:51
    and they also reference another holiday
  • 42:54
    which people called me out before your
  • 42:57
    place can I mention one thing when I was
  • 42:58
    there last year they were having Black
  • 43:00
    Friday cuz I was there then in London
  • 43:03
    and I was quizzing people about this is
  • 43:05
    what what is what is you don't have
  • 43:07
    Thanksgiving how do you have Black
  • 43:08
    Friday and they all told me everyone
  • 43:11
    said this it's Amazon has been promoting
  • 43:14
    it interesting that's not what this
  • 43:16
    report tells us from euronews for
  • 43:19
    today's power-play it's all about the
  • 43:21
    backlash against a very American
  • 43:22
    phenomenon which is growing in Europe
  • 43:24
    backlash against the American phenomenon
  • 43:27
    backlash let's take a look
  • 43:29
    [Music] let's take a look
  • 43:35
    Black Friday
  • 43:37
    it might just drive you to despair
  • 43:39
    bargain mad shoppers literally falling
  • 43:41
    over each other just to get 40% off a
  • 43:44
    television the American phenomenon is
  • 43:46
    linked to Thanksgiving and even though
  • 43:48
    Europe does not mark this holiday Black
  • 43:51
    Friday has been creeping onto its
  • 43:53
    continent in recent years with sales
  • 43:55
    increasing by 32 percent in Europe last
  • 43:58
    year but not everyone is happy about it
  • 44:00
    in France Greenpeace has launched a
  • 44:02
    counter campaign calling on Europeans to
  • 44:05
    ditch the park and fueled chaos in favor
  • 44:07
    of getting active and spending time with
  • 44:10
    family and friends so you're gonna hear
  • 44:12
    this little panel discussion between a
  • 44:14
    couple people I think one is is from
  • 44:16
    Sweden people I think one is is from
  • 44:17
    maybe Sweden or Finland can't remember
  • 44:19
    yes so you have to get interaction for a
  • 44:21
    second so they really kind of like the
  • 44:24
    whole idea that you know they've got
  • 44:25
    these sales are going up and that's good
  • 44:27
    for the economy but it's an American
  • 44:30
    thing so it's you know inherently
  • 44:31
    disgusting it's just it has Americanism
  • 44:34
    all over it it's just so we're going to
  • 44:37
    do it a little different we're not gonna
  • 44:38
    be as crazy as them of course you're
  • 44:41
    only just getting started I think that
  • 44:42
    first image and capture that's what back
  • 44:43
    Black Friday is you know there's there's
  • 44:47
    you know again we're talking about
  • 44:48
    messaging so you were shaking your heads
  • 44:49
    when you were looking at that is it you
  • 44:51
    know is it a good thing about thing
  • 44:52
    Black Friday itself well it's a good
  • 44:55
    foil wallet but it's flat bad for the
  • 44:58
    planet we are already consuming 1.5
  • 45:01
    planets we are already consuming 1.5
  • 45:01
    every year this is a statistic I didn't
  • 45:04
    know existed did you know we are already
  • 45:07
    consuming 1.5 planets every year
  • 45:11
    what is she talking about the and I
  • 45:14
    looked this up the assertion is that
  • 45:18
    this last year or this past year we
  • 45:21
    consumed more minerals than then the
  • 45:26
    planet actually can provide to us it's
  • 45:29
    like a global warming statistic is what
  • 45:31
    it is
  • 45:32
    it's except about climate it's about
  • 45:34
    minerals like oil yes thank you its peak
  • 45:37
    products is what it is for the planet
  • 45:41
    we are already consuming 1.5 planets
  • 45:44
    every year and so we really should think
  • 45:46
    carefully year and so we really should think
  • 45:47
    I don't it might be the translation that
  • 45:50
    makes it funny consuming 1.5 planets but
  • 45:54
    it's bad for the planet and we are
  • 45:57
    already consuming 1.5 planets
  • 45:59
    every year and so we really should think
  • 46:01
    carefully what to buy and buy quality
  • 46:03
    and of course could prize impossible but
  • 46:06
    not just to Russian by anything American
  • 46:09
    is do you think that's something that
  • 46:11
    people think about especially where
  • 46:13
    grant companies are getting more
  • 46:14
    Global's for their mobile approaches we
  • 46:15
    can think about Halloween for example
  • 46:17
    that was kind of introduced to Europe
  • 46:18
    yeah you know I got people telling me it
  • 46:20
    was bullshit that the Halloween is not
  • 46:22
    true it's not happening in Europe it's
  • 46:25
    even happening in France I think that is
  • 46:30
    balanced is to try to use a phenomenon
  • 46:32
    to promote products then there'll be a
  • 46:34
    response of society which can be that
  • 46:37
    harsh but also I think imbalance will
  • 46:38
    happen but also I think imbalance will
  • 46:39
    but very quickly Laura should there be a
  • 46:41
    different messaging when it comes to
  • 46:42
    Black Friday in Europe no I don't think
  • 46:44
    so I mean I think that if it's going to
  • 46:47
    work it will work on the same basis a
  • 46:48
    different messaging don't buy a lot but
  • 46:53
    by responsible wishes that everybody
  • 46:57
    likes a bargain I mean I'm half American
  • 46:58
    and I've actually just come back from
  • 47:00
    the States and I was there for Halloween
  • 47:01
    and I can assure you that even while
  • 47:03
    people go a bit crazy for Halloween here
  • 47:04
    it's nothing like in the States so even
  • 47:06
    if we get that far away it's not gonna
  • 47:08
    be like it isn't just go do dials there
  • 47:10
    you go there you go maybe the sale is
  • 47:12
    actually quite good that a bunch of
  • 47:15
    haters haters who really in haters
  • 47:19
    they're trying to make Black Friday more
  • 47:21
    of a you know a social experience
  • 47:24
    you know it's about press about sales
  • 47:28
    and deals and everyone knows it you
  • 47:31
    can't pretend that it's not
  • 47:34
    so these retailers can get in there and
  • 47:38
    balance the books yes this move is an
  • 47:41
    inventory turn what I saw I won't forget
  • 47:44
    was some mini documentary on Black
  • 47:48
    Friday and it has had different meanings
  • 47:50
    throughout the years there was a Black
  • 47:52
    Friday when it would end the depression
  • 47:55
    and there was it yeah of course had a
  • 47:56
    whole different meaning there were there
  • 47:58
    were different Black Friday
  • 48:01
    interpretations throughout the ages
  • 48:03
    going back you know decades but now the
  • 48:08
    Wikipedian on shopping the Black Friday
  • 48:10
    word it had to do with stock market
  • 48:13
    crashes this is a bad day on Friday but
  • 48:15
    specifically for this holiday I said the
  • 48:19
    word holiday what is a day off in the
  • 48:22
    United States anyway mm-hmm Black Friday
  • 48:24
    is in the forum I'm gonna read from the
  • 48:25
    wiki page so we can get to the bottom of
  • 48:27
    it Black Friday's and formal name for
  • 48:30
    the Friday following Thanksgiving date
  • 48:31
    was you're celebrating the fourth
  • 48:33
    Thursday Black Friday's been regarded as
  • 48:34
    the beginning of the shopping season
  • 48:36
    although the term brac Black Friday
  • 48:38
    didn't become widely used until most
  • 48:40
    recent decades when I was a little kid I
  • 48:42
    never heard this term and I first
  • 48:44
    started hearing it I don't know maybe
  • 48:47
    when did you first hear it cuz maybe 15
  • 48:50
    20 years oh no I've only heard it in the
  • 48:52
    context of shopping what I learned is
  • 48:54
    that in the 50s it referred to the
  • 48:58
    practice of workers calling in sick the
  • 49:01
    day after Thanksgiving and that's why it
  • 49:03
    was called Black Friday
  • 49:05
    we'll hear the earliest evidence of the
  • 49:07
    Black Friday applied to the day after
  • 49:09
    Thanksgiving in a shopping context yes
  • 49:11
    suggest that the term originated in
  • 49:14
    Philadelphia mm-hmm
  • 49:16
    where it was used to describe the heavy
  • 49:18
    and disruption pedestrian and vehicle
  • 49:21
    traffic that would occur on the day
  • 49:23
    after Thanksgiving and made it all look
  • 49:24
    like black like everything was black the
  • 49:26
    usage dates to at least 1961 more than
  • 49:31
    20 years later as the phrase became more
  • 49:33
    widespread a popular explanation became
  • 49:35
    the day represented at the point of the
  • 49:37
    year when retailers began to turn a
  • 49:39
    profit thus going from behind the red to
  • 49:42
    being in the black yeah so it morphed
  • 49:45
    ultimately this is a fit this is an
  • 49:47
    American invention we rule this is what
  • 49:49
    we do we create these types of things
  • 49:52
    and you suckers and Europe you
  • 49:53
    particulate at it yes we're very good at
  • 49:55
    it and we've created this began in 61
  • 49:58
    and then morphed into what it is
  • 49:59
    probably in the 80s I think sounds about
  • 50:03
    the timeline yeah that means that we've
  • 50:05
    been doing is the official Black Friday
  • 50:08
    the modern Black Friday which means you
  • 50:10
    do retells make all their money and that
  • 50:11
    and they all got a clue that everyone's
  • 50:14
    gonna go shopping so let's let's do it
  • 50:16
    this go overboard yeah that just taken
  • 50:19
    what 30 years plus years 1891 is about
  • 50:22
    38 years we uh we'd like to see
  • 50:25
    Europeans or they don't know what's
  • 50:27
    what's gonna happen in 38 years from now
  • 50:30
    they could be completely nuts well
  • 50:32
    remember we've created new holidays we
  • 50:35
    have Cyber Monday we got the cyber
  • 50:37
    Mondays I which is going to get this
  • 50:40
    dude this holiday by the way which is
  • 50:42
    not which is a bogus holiday it's not a
  • 50:46
    holiday great marketing and I believe
  • 50:52
    that Amazon push the idea of Black
  • 50:55
    Friday in Europe if I'm or at least in
  • 50:58
    London if I'm not if these guys aren't
  • 51:01
    full of crap I would I would think is
  • 51:03
    that if you if Black Friday exists then
  • 51:06
    Cyber Monday it will exist yeah I think
  • 51:09
    bamas on genius marketers if that's true
  • 51:13
    well it really had really only started
  • 51:16
    in the last five years in Europe so that
  • 51:18
    wouldn't that would do I'm sure we could
  • 51:21
    we can track that back to Amazon
  • 51:25
    probably yeah whatever doesn't matter
  • 51:30
    it's all it's all people buying shit
  • 51:33
    they don't need with money they don't
  • 51:35
    have don't need with money they don't
  • 51:36
    as so it keeps the country going well
  • 51:39
    sadly that is the way our country this
  • 51:44
    country works you know if I said sadly
  • 51:47
    you don't like buying stuff no I don't
  • 51:50
    like I will always remember George W
  • 51:53
    Bush after 9/11 saying it's very
  • 51:56
    important we all go back to work and
  • 51:57
    keep shopping yeah but it was it was
  • 52:04
    kind of necessary because when you don't
  • 52:06
    have the shopping taking place we can't
  • 52:08
    create the fake money's to lend to you
  • 52:11
    nothing happens if the shoppings not
  • 52:14
    going on we're a mercantil country based
  • 52:17
    on an oil economy let's do something we
  • 52:20
    can't can't ignore completely mm-hmm
  • 52:22
    and we know either one of those things
  • 52:24
    is disrupted you're just gonna end up in
  • 52:25
    a depression and then you get the
  • 52:27
    opportunity for some socialist
  • 52:28
    government to take over some bad things
  • 52:30
    to happen which is what some people
  • 52:32
    strive for
  • 52:34
    people should shop so much well that's
  • 52:39
    what Greenpeace was trying to say yeah
  • 52:41
    that's what Greenpeace was trying to say
  • 52:44
    and they're their basis for saying that
  • 52:45
    is ill-advised I gotta tell you just a
  • 52:49
    shopping experience since at least was
  • 52:52
    here from school and you know Tina the
  • 52:55
    keeper and I were nor consolidating our
  • 52:58
    lives so you know I was hell-bent on
  • 53:02
    taking them away from Sprint and
  • 53:05
    bringing them to my t-mobile account
  • 53:07
    which is just better and cheaper in my
  • 53:09
    opinion so we go to us the coverage
  • 53:11
    there's the coverage good yeah coverage
  • 53:13
    is really good especially up in Arkansas
  • 53:16
    where she goes to school oh then you
  • 53:18
    went t-mobile it's but it's also cheaper
  • 53:21
    I like it I don't you seen the CEO of
  • 53:23
    t-mobile yeah I have direct contact with
  • 53:26
    John ledger the long haired very yes
  • 53:28
    John ledger he's not a freak
  • 53:31
    he's a frigate defending your friend now
  • 53:36
    he's not my friend but I've had issues
  • 53:38
    and I i DM him any DMV back and gave me
  • 53:43
    like his personal assistant to help me
  • 53:45
    with but I was one of her in Italy two
  • 53:47
    years ago okay but anyway but anyway I
  • 53:51
    digress ago okay but anyway but anyway I
  • 53:52
    so we setting up the way it works is a
  • 53:54
    big rigmarole and you get your hand in
  • 53:57
    your your phones and you get new phones
  • 53:58
    back and basically you don't pay for
  • 54:01
    anything but then it just solves your
  • 54:02
    moved over the numbers and moved over
  • 54:04
    and it's cheaper I guess for a while
  • 54:05
    we'll see but two things a the t-mobile
  • 54:09
    story were the only ones there so much
  • 54:11
    for Black Friday it's like what where's
  • 54:13
    all the shoppers nothing but here's the
  • 54:16
    other thing I've always and I don't I
  • 54:19
    have my iPhone 7 plus which is it sits
  • 54:22
    in the corner on the charger the only
  • 54:24
    reason it's there is it's running
  • 54:26
    whatsapp so I can get to whatsapp from a
  • 54:28
    web browser elsewhere I don't I don't
  • 54:31
    use it in a little shrine no it's on the
  • 54:34
    floor I don't use it but the girls use
  • 54:38
    them and so they were going to get new
  • 54:39
    ones and so they were going to get new
  • 54:40
    uh I don't know what Apple was thinking
  • 54:43
    I mean I've been able to keep up with
  • 54:44
    their you know the numbers it's seven
  • 54:46
    seven plus you know all the way back to
  • 54:48
    the first one which I had then I stopped
  • 54:50
    at seven and now we're up to but now we
  • 54:52
    have thee this is still have the ten we
  • 54:54
    have the XS the XS max the Rx the you
  • 54:58
    know is all these different model
  • 55:02
    numbers and there's knows like you're
  • 55:04
    buying a BMW if you know what it's a bit
  • 55:06
    like I'm confused about BMW or Mercedes
  • 55:09
    numbers and you just see these phones
  • 55:11
    there's four new iPhones next to each
  • 55:13
    other the only difference you can really
  • 55:15
    see is price
  • 55:17
    yeah you had the phone this one's a
  • 55:19
    little bigger than that one and that one
  • 55:21
    looks a little bit brighter
  • 55:22
    I think they screwed it up what were
  • 55:24
    they thinking with all of the it was so
  • 55:25
    easy to remember like the new phone has
  • 55:28
    this number and there's the big one has
  • 55:30
    a plus and now that no this one has a
  • 55:32
    better camera that one has an OLED
  • 55:34
    versus an LCD screen
  • 55:37
    it's like hocus I don't I think they
  • 55:41
    made a mistake it's it's no is I think
  • 55:45
    people just look I serve I can afford
  • 55:46
    that one looks kind of the same does it
  • 55:48
    work that works fine well this is
  • 55:50
    reminiscent of apples the Apple has a
  • 55:53
    tendency to do this they did this with
  • 55:55
    the Macintosh once once jobs quit and
  • 55:59
    Scully took over yeah and then Scully
  • 56:01
    ran the business and you know way up to
  • 56:04
    10x the company yeah and then once he
  • 56:07
    left I think Spindler took over after
  • 56:10
    that but once he left they started this
  • 56:13
    weird branding of the Macintosh the
  • 56:15
    Macintosh - there was the Macintosh LS
  • 56:18
    there was a whole series of macintoshes
  • 56:22
    that came out in boxes and stand-alones
  • 56:25
    and it was really very confusing and I
  • 56:28
    thought that you know it was something
  • 56:31
    somewhat genius of them to do a like a
  • 56:35
    yearly new a new iPhone yeah and it was
  • 56:39
    gonna be this iPhone then it was this
  • 56:41
    five than the six then no and then you
  • 56:44
    had the plus and then the S we had an S
  • 56:45
    cycle so you know I was gonna be a
  • 56:47
    little color ones well that's the RX now
  • 56:51
    the RX has the little color ones except
  • 56:53
    you can't really get any color of colors
  • 56:55
    because no and you know they don't have
  • 56:56
    stock them enough yes I don't know it
  • 56:59
    just it seems like a marketing mistake
  • 57:00
    to me as someone who just as I was just
  • 57:05
    like I'm not stupid I've kept use yeah
  • 57:08
    there are people in marketing
  • 57:10
    departments that really believe that
  • 57:11
    lots of SKUs give people a lot of
  • 57:14
    choices is a good idea I don't think so
  • 57:17
    hmm well I think you know we won't I
  • 57:20
    wound up today we'll just get him the Rx
  • 57:22
    you know looks fine
  • 57:24
    you know doesn't have this spiffy super
  • 57:26
    camera on it or the OLED display but
  • 57:28
    it's got the a 12 processor
  • 57:33
    oh I think you're right not because I
  • 57:36
    think that's the googles you know
  • 57:38
    falling it more you know pixel pixel -
  • 57:41
    there's no I think they're up to the
  • 57:43
    pixel three actually not a pixel 3s and
  • 57:49
    a pixel 3a and a pixel 3/3 eyes yes none
  • 57:56
    of that
  • 57:56
    I know yet yeah exactly
  • 57:59
    little ultra mom before we take our
  • 58:01
    first break and this came out this
  • 58:03
    morning I only had a chance to listen to
  • 58:05
    it for one second this is from CBS this
  • 58:07
    morning they are talking about
  • 58:08
    conspiracy theorists I'm always
  • 58:10
    interested what people think of
  • 58:12
    conspiracy theorists is because I would
  • 58:14
    say that I am one huh let's see if the
  • 58:21
    description fits what's inside the tin
  • 58:23
    what does your basic conspiracy theorist
  • 58:27
    look like if I ask people to close their
  • 58:30
    eyes and imagine who that person is
  • 58:32
    mm-hmm and imagine who that person is
  • 58:33
    most of them are gonna think of a white
  • 58:34
    male middle-aged and look a lot like me
  • 58:37
    tinfoil hat perhaps living in the
  • 58:40
    mother's basement with a ham radio you
  • 58:53
    know we have this this movement to get
  • 58:55
    more people younger people especially
  • 58:57
    not your radio yeah and yet there's this
  • 59:00
    guy like and I don't believe by the way
  • 59:03
    that many of these conspiracy theorists
  • 59:06
    whatever they whoever they are are hams
  • 59:08
    I don't think that many are is Alex
  • 59:11
    Jones a ham radio guy I don't think so
  • 59:14
    your conspiracy theorist yes oh okay
  • 59:17
    well no I don't think he's a ham radio
  • 59:19
    guy yeah with that though thank you for
  • 59:24
    making me a ham radio guy and I'd like
  • 59:26
    to thank you for your courage and say in
  • 59:27
    the morning to you Jonesy and compact

  • 1:00:06
    morning - uncle cave bear he brought us
  • 1:00:09
    the artwork for episode 1088 the title
  • 1:00:11

  • 1:00:13

    drive is conscientious
  • 1:00:46
    alright but you have two people to thank
  • 1:00:49
    for today's show by the way I wouldn't
  • 1:00:51
    should mention the people that are
  • 1:00:52
    listening and I don't think there's
  • 1:00:53
    gonna be that many because the
  • 1:00:54
    Thanksgiving Day and the Sunday in
  • 1:00:57
    particular that follows Thanksgiving are
  • 1:01:00
    very slow that's where most TV shows are
  • 1:01:02
    on reruns and they even they won't even
  • 1:01:04
    do late-night shows I'm surprised the
  • 1:01:06
    news isn't a rerun although when you
  • 1:01:08
    listen to the news you might think it is
  • 1:01:11
    but we do have two people wanted one
  • 1:01:13
    executive producer and one associate
  • 1:01:15
    executive producer to thank and the the
  • 1:01:17
    executive producer is anonymous ten and
  • 1:01:21
    he gave one thousand eighty nine dollars
  • 1:01:22
    and 33 cents which is even better than
  • 1:01:26
    our 1389 he so he's a member the 1089
  • 1:01:29
    Club by the way which hasn't been used
  • 1:01:32
    for a while it hasn't been Club that
  • 1:01:34
    Club hasn't been reopened for a while
  • 1:01:35
    and he did it before the news letter
  • 1:01:39
    went out which had the 1089 offering cuz
  • 1:01:41
    1089 is 33 square which we thought would
  • 1:01:44
    be a big deal that turned out nobody
  • 1:01:46
    cares look at this bridge see like huh
  • 1:01:52
    you thought people would would like the
  • 1:01:54

    monitoring man Madam Secretary yes yes
  • 1:06:40
    I'm glad you are because I can't watch
  • 1:06:42
    it anymore it's pretty hard to watch
  • 1:06:44
    this yes because it's pretty much taken
  • 1:06:46
    over by the lire foundation was burgled
  • 1:06:49
    show my Candice Bergen show which I
  • 1:06:51
    you're also supposed to be watching oh
  • 1:06:53
    my god that thing is unwatchable
  • 1:06:55
    well this but there was like a whole
  • 1:06:56
    thing but did we do the ice thing do we
  • 1:06:59
    already do that from that show I don't
  • 1:07:01
    know I'll go look at the lire foundation
  • 1:07:04
    is all over these programs yeah these
  • 1:07:06
    two in particular but let's just get a
  • 1:07:08
    little just a little G little a little
  • 1:07:10
    knife into Russia on this particular
  • 1:07:12
    short clip and this is at a Leone as the
  • 1:07:15
    Secretary of State in a fictional story
  • 1:07:18
    in this case is a spy Oh X by talking to
  • 1:07:22
    the to the group I don't think we know
  • 1:07:24
    anymore what Russia is or isn't capable
  • 1:07:27
    of we need answers
  • 1:07:31
    so that's it yeah that was this I'm
  • 1:07:36
    keeping these short yeah I could tell
  • 1:07:38
    well I I did watch something else about
  • 1:07:42
    I think we got through four four
  • 1:07:44
    episodes of the Clinton affair this is
  • 1:07:47
    very interesting
  • 1:07:48
    I think it's originally a series done by
  • 1:07:50
    A&E and now it's on Amazon the Clinton
  • 1:07:53
    affair chronicles the really the Monica
  • 1:07:57
    Lewinsky story and how that got you know
  • 1:08:01
    extrapolated out of the white originally
  • 1:08:05
    the Whitewater investigation with a
  • 1:08:07
    special prosecutor Ken Starr which
  • 1:08:09
    ultimately resulted in the impeachment
  • 1:08:11
    of Bill Clinton well but the impeachment
  • 1:08:15
    was for his had nothing to do with the
  • 1:08:17
    Whitewater investigation and only had to
  • 1:08:19
    do it's his testimony about Monica where
  • 1:08:22
    he lied under oath the interesting thing
  • 1:08:25
    as you're already starting to point out
  • 1:08:27
    here you're already starting to point out
  • 1:08:29
    the I did not know all of the history I
  • 1:08:32
    did not realize there the affair went on
  • 1:08:35
    for two years I did not realize the
  • 1:08:38
    extent and I did not realize if you look
  • 1:08:40
    at Paula Jones and there was one other
  • 1:08:45
    one forget what what would really
  • 1:08:49
    whether it really was about was sexual
  • 1:08:51
    harassment in the workplace and that's a
  • 1:08:54
    little different than the way I recall
  • 1:08:55
    this go and of course this was 95 96 97
  • 1:08:59
    98 I was doing other things at the time
  • 1:09:01
    so I didn't pay that much attention to
  • 1:09:02
    it I didn't pay that much attention to
  • 1:09:03
    probably didn't care but it but you know
  • 1:09:05
    there's there's one is one thing to it
  • 1:09:10
    really sexual harassment in the
  • 1:09:12
    workplace is a huge issue where you're
  • 1:09:13
    doing this to subordinates and that's
  • 1:09:15
    what the Paula Jones was about and the
  • 1:09:18
    other and one of the other women are
  • 1:09:19
    multiple there's a couple way but what's
  • 1:09:21
    uncanny is the parallel and when you
  • 1:09:26
    watch the series it's like holy crap
  • 1:09:27
    this is exactly the type of thing that's
  • 1:09:30
    happening to Trump today right it means
  • 1:09:34
    right down to the same issues the same
  • 1:09:36
    defense the same attacks the differences
  • 1:09:39
    you know Trump so as far as we know paid
  • 1:09:44
    off you know hookers and porno stars to
  • 1:09:49
    have sex with him wasn't necessarily
  • 1:09:51
    sexual harassment in the workplace but
  • 1:09:55
    the same idea of an investigation about
  • 1:09:57
    something which was like man really the
  • 1:09:59
    Whitewater yeah maybe there was
  • 1:10:01
    something with the savings and loan I
  • 1:10:02
    don't know Clintons did have convinced
  • 1:10:04
    Foster's death in there which you know
  • 1:10:06
    they the Trump hasn't had anything like
  • 1:10:09
    that yet but you know it's like a Russia
  • 1:10:11
    investigation and revolt eventually it's
  • 1:10:14
    like it's like the history repeats
  • 1:10:16
    itself we love in America we like
  • 1:10:18
    starting at the top with you're doing
  • 1:10:20
    something really bad for the country and
  • 1:10:22
    we bring it all the way down to a hooker
  • 1:10:24
    and to sex and that's all that we seem
  • 1:10:27
    to be able to do is bring it down to
  • 1:10:30
    someone having sex with somebody else
  • 1:10:32
    and the D parallel is just uncanny you
  • 1:10:35
    don't think it is but when you see the
  • 1:10:36
    series you're like holy crap and just as
  • 1:10:39
    bad by the way the name-calling the
  • 1:10:42
    horrible press reports very similar no
  • 1:10:46
    wonder no wonder Hillary wanted all this
  • 1:10:49
    no wonder she's enlisted of mi6 and the
  • 1:10:53
    yeah with this with steel and all these
  • 1:10:55
