    Momoa so this guy yeah he's got never
  • 1:01
    heard I feel pretty disconnected to a
  • 1:04
    popular culture right now yeah well you
  • 1:07
    should mm-hmm
  • 1:08
    and so this guy who obviously has a new
  • 1:10
    publicist um he's an actor uh he's been
  • 1:14
    in a bunch of things that's like it's
  • 1:16
    not a household name by any means but I
  • 1:17
    guess he is to some people Momoa
  • 1:20
    Oh Jason Momoa Jason Momoa all right so
  • 1:25
    what has he been on that we've well I
  • 1:29
    guess he was on an old Stargate okay the
  • 1:32
    TV series I think and I don't know what
  • 1:35
    else hmm he's long hair dead guy kind of
  • 1:38
    hunky guy was a douche bag beard yeah he
  • 1:41
    looks a little bit like our very own
  • 1:43
    Chris Wilson to be honest in Australia
  • 1:45
    even a little rougher though Wilson is
  • 1:54
    the next memo of my friend hands down
  • 1:57

  • 2:00
    plate Ronin decks on Stargate Atlantis
  • 2:04
    Khal Drogo in oh hello Game of Thrones
  • 2:09
    Oh game of that's why we don't know the
  • 2:12
    guy he's probably the most famous actors
  • 2:17
    of our time because he's on Game of
  • 2:19
    Thrones Yas Queen all right good next
  • 2:25
    president fantastic although I will be
  • 2:28
    coming to you from the future on today's
  • 2:29
    program talk about I you have something
  • 2:31
    from the future I do but not right now
  • 2:33
    it's I don't wanted to just dive into it
  • 2:35
    let's ease into it because I felt this
  • 2:37
    weekend for me was a point aplomb to
  • 2:40
    tipping a tipping point where the m5m
  • 2:44
    certainly the cable news media actually
  • 2:46
    became unwatchable for me it was on
  • 2:50
    watch demand from the past
  • 2:53
    you haven't seen that like months ago
  • 2:55
    but okay I mean I've really held in for
  • 2:57
    a long time but when the Mueller
  • 3:01
    whatever completely unimportant
  • 3:04
    unrelated stupid information the
  • 3:07
    sentencing of Cohen it's like going I
  • 3:11
    mean the the movies the scenarios I
  • 3:15
    should say actually Scott Adams talks
  • 3:17
    about movies but the scenario that MSNBC
  • 3:20
    and CNN and conversely Fox have
  • 3:23
    concocted it's just not worth anyone's
  • 3:26
    time anymore it's like remember when the
  • 3:28
    Malaysian Airlines plane went down and
  • 3:31
    as it still hasn't been found
  • 3:33
    and I recall watching CNN every day they
  • 3:38
    did stores it was wall-to-wall stories
  • 3:40
    about this missing aircraft we had the
  • 3:42
    crazy lady from Singapore who was in
  • 3:44
    China we a we tracked a lot of it and I
  • 3:46
    remember it was one year they did that
  • 3:48
    story for a year until they finally had
  • 3:51
    to give up on it because people weren't
  • 3:53
    interested anymore and I think we're
  • 3:55
    reaching this point with just this
  • 3:57
    blather and they did this to what
  • 3:59
    they've dreamt up it's it's just it's
  • 4:04
    not like if you want to go in that
  • 4:06
    direction yeah give me some of that well
  • 4:09
    let me go with dreamt up I want to play
  • 4:13
    because there's two bits in here that I
  • 4:15
    want to keep notice by the way I don't
  • 4:18
    want to tell people if you get to
  • 4:19
    Microsoft 365 to get a terabyte of data
  • 4:24
    it's bacon baby you better fight it
  • 4:27
    bacon you get a terabyte of cloud
  • 4:28
    storage but what's cool about put all
  • 4:30
    the clips on the cloud mm-hmm the
  • 4:34
    software they're using to do search is
  • 4:37
    so much faster than my desktop software
  • 4:39
    so I can find whole clips I boom
  • 4:42
    instantly excellent so I find that today
  • 4:46
    but I've always felt that the cloud
  • 4:47
    would be good for that because instead
  • 4:48
    of keeping your stuff on your locals you
  • 4:51
    know using the blame search stuff that
  • 4:53
    we have on the desktops to put it in a
  • 4:55
    big mainframe and let the mainframe
  • 4:57
    crank through this big index you believe
  • 5:00
    it's being indexed by a mainframe
  • 5:02
    well it's probably notes there's
  • 5:04
    obviously a bunch of those servers but
  • 5:05
    the software they're using is much
  • 5:07
    better than stuff I have okay and this
  • 5:09
    is this is Microsoft's cloud yeah
  • 5:12
    Microsoft's cloud okay I don't think
  • 5:14
    Ronis has a cloud to that I thought they
  • 5:16
    were gonna be doing more of this or
  • 5:18
    thing but let's listen to two Brooks
  • 5:20
    Brooks and shields and Brooks and he's
  • 5:23
    got two predictions in here that I'm
  • 5:24
    gonna I wrote this ought to be really
  • 5:27
    long so I could look it up later he's
  • 5:29
    got two predictions in here based on
  • 5:32
    what you just said about this crazy
  • 5:34
    scenario they've dreamed up what do we
  • 5:36
    think it it adds up to what is it first
  • 5:38
    these guys are not very good
  • 5:40
    co-operators if you're gonna cooperate
  • 5:41
    cooperate but man four it's going to
  • 5:43
    jail probably for the rest of his life
  • 5:44
    in cones getting a healthy sentence
  • 5:47
    because he sort of semi cooperated
  • 5:49
    something like that but I think what
  • 5:51
    we're seeing is the pace ramped up on a
  • 5:53
    lot of fronts with they're clearly
  • 5:55
    interested in the more context than we
  • 5:57
    knew with Russia in 2015 with the
  • 5:58
    campaign this one called synergy they
  • 6:00
    apparently found and then especially the
  • 6:03
    business dealings the Trump's dealings
  • 6:05
    with in Moscow and my instinct is that
  • 6:07
    there's going to be a lot more
  • 6:08
    investigation to business than the rest
  • 6:11
    into Russia collusion there's just a lot
  • 6:13
    more there and the other sense you get
  • 6:16
    is a lot of Republicans are looking at
  • 6:17
    this White House and they're seeing an
  • 6:20
    administration under a lot of judicial
  • 6:22
    and legal threat and a lot under the
  • 6:23
    political threat and they see a White
  • 6:26
    House counsel's office that is denuded
  • 6:28
    of authority and people and then what
  • 6:31
    they call the membrane around Trump is
  • 6:32
    frailing and the membrane is the group
  • 6:35
    of people they put around Trump to
  • 6:36
    protect him from himself and over the
  • 6:39
    years the whole pixas of the world and
  • 6:40
    maybe in the next few days the John
  • 6:42
    Kelly's of the world are going and gone
  • 6:43
    and so you see a Trump unprotected from
  • 6:46
    himself I need to begin to see a lot of
  • 6:48
    Republicans who are looking seriously at
  • 6:50
    2019 with a lot of Friday's like this
  • 6:52
    one and Trump you know really hurting
  • 6:55
    himself and maybe not serving out the
  • 6:56
    term Joe's dream come true and you know
  • 7:06
    what's happening I was listening to
  • 7:07
    Dutch news radio over the weekend I've
  • 7:10
    actually Saturday that Tina had some
  • 7:12
    some nonprofit work to do and so I'm
  • 7:14
    just
  • 7:15
    - this connotes if she's around it's you
  • 7:17
    won't understand it and the every
  • 7:20
    journalist that came on it's as if they
  • 7:22
    sat at home and had their morning coffee
  • 7:24
    and watched MSNBC yeah because they can
  • 7:27
    get that over there they can they can
  • 7:28
    and you don't even need to have MSNBC to
  • 7:30
    get this story and then they go on the
  • 7:33
    air and then just like oh oh my god
  • 7:35
    you'll never serve out his term and and
  • 7:37
    of course they'd like to pronounce
  • 7:38
    trumpet shrimp so all you hear is this
  • 7:40
    Boop trip there's a drink drink group
  • 7:43
    and it's the same delusion is just
  • 7:48
    delusionary oh I think it's also
  • 7:54
    delusional to think that mana fort is
  • 7:57
    going to be sentenced to life in prison
  • 8:02
    for his financial crimes yes well we
  • 8:06
    don't have to go through it again it's
  • 8:08
    that this has nothing the only thing as
  • 8:10
    far as I can see that that may that
  • 8:12
    maybe maybe maybe is out there is
  • 8:15
    somehow illegal campaign contribution
  • 8:18
    due to the payoff of the stripper and
  • 8:23
    the the other a we should if you're
  • 8:26
    gonna bring that if somebody did bring
  • 8:28
    this up in a tweet and I thought it was
  • 8:29
    something to bring up John Edwards who
  • 8:33
    ran for vice president took illegal
  • 8:36
    campaign contributions up to the tune of
  • 8:38
    a million yes his sidepiece that's right
  • 8:45
    and all you pay is a fine and then you
  • 8:48
    know it's done
  • 8:50
    he didn't get any other punishment
  • 8:52
    besides a fine did he I don't even know
  • 8:54
    he got a fine yeah every campaign makes
  • 8:57
    mistakes like that no Obama campaign had
  • 8:59
    money that they took incorrectly and
  • 9:01
    it's all kinds of stuff so but that
  • 9:03
    doesn't matter it's it's in these
  • 9:05
    people's heads
  • 9:07
    this is the wit delusional is the right
  • 9:09
    word I cuz I kind of soft pedal that has
  • 9:13
    incredible wishful thinking but at the
  • 9:16
    point that it is now I would say
  • 9:17
    delusional is the some incorrect term
  • 9:20
    yeah I mean just from a legal standpoint
  • 9:22
    argue this from a legal standpoint it's
  • 9:24
    just not there but that's the way it is
  • 9:28
    Comey testified
  • 9:31
    jams commie and as per his wishes he
  • 9:35
    released the entire transcript of his
  • 9:38
    behind-closed-doors
  • 9:39
    testimony was released I think almost
  • 9:42
    the same day 250 pages of stuff some of
  • 9:46
    its redacted a lot of I can't recall
  • 9:50
    that's always my face that take somebody
  • 9:53
    count is 57 or so I heard it was 250
  • 9:56
    times that's what I heard
  • 10:00
    well it's it's quite a long document one
  • 10:03
    of our producers did pull out an
  • 10:04
    interesting quote as a lot of people
  • 10:06
    have been going through this
  • 10:10
    let's see Ratcliffe asks Co me I'll just
  • 10:13
    I'll just do this one paragraph here
  • 10:14
    alright so I guess I tried to summarize
  • 10:16
    what I've heard today Hillary Clinton
  • 10:18
    mishandled classified information more
  • 10:19
    than a hundred times
  • 10:20
    she made false statements about it the
  • 10:22
    FBI was aware that at least one of her
  • 10:23
    aides also mishandled classified
  • 10:25
    information and one of the folks
  • 10:26
    employed on behalf of Secretary Clinton
  • 10:28
    intentionally destroyed evidence known
  • 10:30
    to be subject to a congressional
  • 10:31
    subpoena and preservation order and lied
  • 10:33
    to the FBI about it and on July 5th 2016
  • 10:35
    you stood you sir stood for the American
  • 10:38
    people and said that neither you nor any
  • 10:40
    reasonable prosecutor would bring any
  • 10:42
    charges in this fact pattern is that
  • 10:43
    accuracy is it accurate mr. Comey is
  • 10:47
    reply yep I believes it then I believe
  • 10:50
    it now and anybody that thinks we were
  • 10:53
    on Team Clinton trying to cut her a
  • 10:54
    break is smoking something yeah yeah
  • 11:00
    yeah see it's too bad we don't have
  • 11:02
    audio of that cuz I would have been much
  • 11:03
    better I agree with Jim Comey you I
  • 11:05
    couldn't have been out in the open well
  • 11:08
    I think it's cuz everyone's showboating
  • 11:10
    and it's probably embarrassing for
  • 11:12
    everyone exactly very embarrassing so
  • 11:17
    now we have
  • 11:19
    a new pic for the Attorney General
  • 11:21
    William bar I guess he goes by bill bar
  • 11:25
    they call him bill like Robert Mueller
  • 11:27
    is Bob Miller
  • 11:28
    I don't know barb I heard was William I
  • 11:30
    like Bill barb bill by tomorrow
  • 11:32
    everybody how you doing
  • 11:36
    you know turns out he worked for the CIA
  • 11:38
    didn't he work for Papa Bush yeah as his
  • 11:42
    attorney general which was like what a
  • 11:45
    hundred years ago and now the guys still
  • 11:48
    up for another Attorney General's job
  • 11:49
    after Clinton and Bush jr. and everybody
  • 11:53
    in between let's see he was born in 1950
  • 11:57
    so he was young at the time then
  • 12:02
    yeah it was it be in his 40s overwhelm
  • 12:04
    1950 so he being this yeah late 60s has
  • 12:11
    gotta be mid-60s I was we could probably
  • 12:13
    figure it out if we did the math yeah
  • 12:15
    gosh if we actually took a pen to paper
  • 12:17
    Wikipedia is not helping one Tuesday
  • 12:20
    they put it in Paris yeah it's not that
  • 12:22
    I'm looking for it it's like why didn't
  • 12:24
    they give me an age here yeah and height
  • 12:28
    sixty-eight there's no height there here
  • 12:33
    is okay so it was interesting I think
  • 12:36
    the peak was made public
  • 12:37
    when Bush's train was doing the tour or
  • 12:41
    whenever part of the funeral processions
  • 12:43
    with procession which I also did not
  • 12:45
    watch so it was kind of an interesting
  • 12:49
    time you know timing to choose that but
  • 12:51
    this guy himself is I mean I'm not quite
  • 12:54
    sure why the president picked him here's
  • 12:58
    Greg Jarrett on Fox Business News
  • 13:01
    talking about cuz he know he's of course
  • 13:03
    reported on this guy in the past and
  • 13:04
    here we go the president has a duty to
  • 13:07
    direct the Attorney General what to do
  • 13:09
    what not to do this whole notion of
  • 13:12
    Independence is a canard that's been
  • 13:14
    peddled for 40 years now as for William
  • 13:18
    bar I'm sort of of two minds yes
  • 13:21
    unquestionable integrity a fine
  • 13:23
    reputation great experience he brings
  • 13:26
    gravitas to the job drives an
  • 13:29
    establishment figure at a time when I
  • 13:31
    was gravitas
  • 13:32
    you know gravitas is interesting because
  • 13:35
    it's a term they tried to use they tried
  • 13:38
    to push this term on Obama no no way
  • 13:42
    before that the first time I saw them
  • 13:43
    trying to push push this term was when
  • 13:45
    Clinton was running for the first
  • 13:47
    president for the first time Hillary or
  • 13:49
    bill bill hmm this goes way back this is
  • 13:52
    this this was just stemmed from the
  • 13:55
    original Governor Cuomo ah the old man
  • 13:58
    yep who was gonna run for president when
  • 14:02
    George Bush was up for a second term but
  • 14:05
    he decided not to because if he's gonna
  • 14:08
    get reelected so Clinton got in and that
  • 14:10
    was in the coup almost political career
  • 14:11
    for good because it was a mitt be made a
  • 14:13
    mistake cuz he would have been the
  • 14:14
    shoo-in it seems
  • 14:16
    but they started they dropped this term
  • 14:18
    into the public domain of left-wing
  • 14:21
    media which is I'm going to call it
  • 14:24
    gravitas and they kept talking referring
  • 14:28
    to Cuomo as being the best candidate
  • 14:31
    because he has gravitas gravitas
  • 14:34
    they kept hounding us with his word
  • 14:36
    gravitas then it will disappeared
  • 14:38
    completely and now they're trying to
  • 14:39
    revitalize it gravitas high seriousness
  • 14:45
    is the merriam-webster definition
  • 14:47
    dignity seriousness or solemnity of
  • 14:50
    manner yeah I think there's good
  • 14:54
    once they've rediscovered it which is
  • 14:55
    you just pointed out I think they're
  • 14:58
    gonna stick you're gonna go hard with it
  • 14:59
    because it's just the opposite of Trump
  • 15:02
    well we always try to be Gravett Oreo on
  • 15:04
    this show I've always tried to have
  • 15:07
    gravity fly out of the room a toss to
  • 15:10
    the job but he is an establishment
  • 15:12
    figure at a time when I think we need a
  • 15:15
    disrupter as Attorney General somebody
  • 15:18
    who would vigorously go after corrupt
  • 15:20
    officials at the FBI and Department of
  • 15:23
    Justice who were abusing their positions
  • 15:25
    of power and attempting to undermine
  • 15:27
    democracy I'm afraid bar is not that guy
  • 15:31
    [Music]
  • 15:33
    oh he's not that guy so on PBS they had
  • 15:38
    the woman a black woman who's won this I
  • 15:43
    think she's she seems sweet but she
  • 15:46
    seems incompetent and it's a shame
  • 15:48
    because there's so many experienced
  • 15:50
    black people that could be Gwen
  • 15:53
    replacement is it it's the Gwen
  • 15:55
    replacement it's the Elson door woman
  • 15:57
    and but so they keep giving her
  • 16:00
    different assignments which she still
  • 16:01
    doesn't care it very well because she
  • 16:02
    doesn't present well she can't enunciate
  • 16:04
    like a PBS person should which is old
  • 16:08
    network style but they had her do run
  • 16:11
    downs on all these different people that
  • 16:13
    are that Trump's talking about replacing
  • 16:15
    one person with another and she did one
  • 16:18
    on William Barstow and completely listen
  • 16:21
    to her point of view because I think she
  • 16:23
    did a lot of research she talked to a
  • 16:25
    lot of people I think this is actually
  • 16:26
    she did a pretty good job except her
  • 16:28
    presentation still skills are still
  • 16:30
    lousy William Bar summary when you hear
  • 16:33
    her version shake up so you nice let's
  • 16:35
    talk first about the basis pick to be
  • 16:37
    Attorney General when there's an acting
  • 16:39
    Attorney General but Bob Barr Robert
  • 16:42
    Barr who has been our sorry William bar
  • 16:46
    the administration of President Bush
  • 16:48
    George HW Bush is now being asked by
  • 16:51
    President Trump to become Attorney
  • 16:54
    General what do we know about him what
  • 16:56
    we know is that William Barr is looked
  • 16:58
    at as a respected attorney and that
  • 17:00
    Democrats and Republicans today signaled
  • 17:02
    that they could get behind him and
  • 17:03
    support him as Attorney General I want
  • 17:05
    to walk you through who William Bar is
  • 17:07
    from 1991 to 1993 he was Attorney
  • 17:10
    General for the late former President
  • 17:11
    George HW Bush he was however involved
  • 17:14
    in the controversial iran-contra pardons
  • 17:16
    he formerly worked for the CIA in the
  • 17:18
    1970s and he was an executive at what
  • 17:20
    he's done probably knows him really well
  • 17:23
    he was maybe hello Don didn't cover up
  • 17:28
    Bush's ass Contras oh I'm sure they know
  • 17:31
    each other
  • 17:32
    Iran Contra pardons he formerly worked
  • 17:34
    for the CIA in the 1970s and he was an
  • 17:36
    executive at Verizon he is now
  • 17:38
    practicing law in Washington DC people
  • 17:41
    that I talked to today told me that he's
  • 17:43
    an establishment Republican this is not
  • 17:45
    someone who's a Trump loyalist the
  • 17:46
    president has billed at times the
  • 17:48
    cabinet members in the White House with
  • 17:50
    people who are loyal to him personally
  • 17:52
    but this is someone that someone like
  • 17:53
    Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz another
  • 17:56
    Republican had they become president
  • 17:57
    might have picked for their attorney
  • 17:58
    general I'm also told that he is someone
  • 18:01
    who has had some past comments that are
  • 18:03
    controversial on Special Investigations
  • 18:06
    and Special Counsel I want to read you
  • 18:07
    something from the New York Times in on
  • 18:09
    November 14 2017 the New York Times
  • 18:12
    published an article where they said
  • 18:14
    quote mr. Barr said he sees basis more
  • 18:17
    basis for investigating the Clinton
  • 18:18
    uranium deal than any supposed collusion
  • 18:21
    between mr. Trump and Russia and mr.
  • 18:24
    Barr told the New York Times to the
  • 18:26
    extent it is not pursuing these matters
  • 18:28
    the department is abdicating its
  • 18:30
    responsibility so to be clear mr. Barr
  • 18:33
    is saying that Hillary Clinton might
  • 18:35
    need to be investigated some more he's
  • 18:37
    also said that it's okay for presidents
  • 18:39
    to specifically ask for investigations
  • 18:41
    to happen under the DL J so this guy is
  • 18:44
    in essence a veteran of the deep state I
  • 18:51
    think his definition of a veteran of the
  • 18:53
    deep state I mean holy moley
  • 18:55
    but still it seems odd that Iran well no
  • 18:58
    I guess he
  • 18:59
    now 68 okay it makes sense he was he was
  • 19:02
    young though back in the day he must
  • 19:04
    have been a go-getter
  • 19:05
    yummy yummy slay Oni Alcindor has quite
  • 19:10
    the resume including winning the award
  • 19:14
    named after were not a named after Dana
  • 19:17
    a tribute to Gwen Ifill who passed away
  • 19:21
    the Syracuse University toner prize
  • 19:23
    she's been she's New York Times she's
  • 19:26
    been around
  • 19:27
    she has cred yeah as a writer oh it will
  • 19:31
    stir hello of course
  • 19:35
    don't get me started on the television I
  • 19:38
    mean that's our job
  • 19:39
    but it's okay no one ever asks us our
  • 19:41
    opinion we know it works they do ask us
  • 19:44
    our opinion actually but nobody thinking
  • 19:49
    about about the television presentation
  • 19:51
    myself that we're very knowledgeable
  • 19:53
    about okay yes it's our opinion but hey
  • 19:57
    what do you think of Trump I was
  • 20:08
    watching you talk about this is Pluto TV

  • 22:20
    Channel hey man that's what net
  • 22:24
    neutrality is all about man it's like
  • 22:26
    they're getting throttled somewhere bro
  • 22:29
    so I'm watching the Pluto app and so you
  • 22:34
    know the RT Sky News there's one or two
  • 22:38
    other odd ones but that's really what I
  • 22:39
    was going for
  • 22:40
    MSNBC's on there no CBS n CBS endosomes
  • 22:45
    is it right yes see Bisson so because I
  • 22:48
    gave up I gave up on the m5 n so off we
  • 22:51
    go to Pluto that's there's nothing in
  • 22:52
    between
  • 22:53
    apparently the Pluto TV but but Artie
  • 23:00
    was doing a really good job of covering
  • 23:01
    what was happening in Paris
  • 23:03
    holy moly and you know make no mistake
  • 23:06
    but yes only Artie is covering it I told
  • 23:11
    you there was you know some rumors about
  • 23:13
    the BBC having been issued a D notice
  • 23:16
    and not just BBC of course I'd be
  • 23:18
    everybody but there's not a lot of
  • 23:19
    reporting on it and what I saw was you
  • 23:23
    know exactly what you'd expect from a
  • 23:25
    color revolution we've now you know you
  • 23:28
    have to really watch the screen and see
  • 23:31
    that it's not all people with yellow
  • 23:34
    jackets but there's also people yellow
  • 23:36
    jackets with a you know with a macabre
  • 23:39
    on who are ruining stuff you know the
  • 23:44
    bread there again they're smashing into
  • 23:46
    the Apple store stealing all the all
  • 23:48
    this stuff in the Apple store which is
  • 23:50
    just about the stupidest thing you can
  • 23:53
    do children when you're LARPing around
  • 23:55
    and you want to go steal something from
  • 23:58
    the Apple store because your other
  • 23:59
    LARPing friends broke the window and we
  • 24:01
    were in and you just grab it all and
  • 24:03
    take it home
  • 24:04
    you better not be hooking that crap up
  • 24:06
    to the internet because the Apple police
  • 24:08
    will find you very very quickly I don't
  • 24:10
    care what you even give it to somebody
  • 24:12
    else is going to come back to you these
  • 24:14
    things are completely loaded they know
  • 24:17
    exactly where these boxes are there's a
  • 24:19
    million ways for them to find it don't
  • 24:20
    steal that and they saw they they ran
  • 24:24
    into a golfing store a golf sporting
  • 24:26
    goods store got a whole bunch of golf
  • 24:28
    clubs ran outside started smashing the
  • 24:30
    window with the golf clubs I don't think
  • 24:33
    this has a lot to do with the climate
  • 24:35
    change tax any more there is a genuine
  • 24:40
    very unhappy
  • 24:41
    I think maybe the Marrakesh agreement
  • 24:43
    which should be signed today or tomorrow
  • 24:46
    that may have something to do with it a
  • 24:48
    lot of people in so that sadly brings us
  • 24:51
    right back to migration but it looks
  • 24:53
    more and more like a color revolution is
  • 24:56
    set up that way with the Yellow Jackets
  • 24:58
    is now in Belgium they were in Brussels
  • 25:00
    they were trying to you know at the
  • 25:01
    European Parliament they're in Amsterdam
  • 25:04
    they're in Rotterdam it's happening
  • 25:07
    everywhere and as long as the m5m
  • 25:09
    doesn't give it too much attention
  • 25:11
    it might not you know catch fire I think
  • 25:14
    is that's what the thinking is I think
  • 25:17
    that's exactly what the thinking is
  • 25:18
    Artie is the only network as much as
  • 25:23
    people like to condemn them at least
  • 25:25
    they're covering this and they're
  • 25:26
    covering it well yes although it's kind
  • 25:31
    of funny in the French newspapers and
  • 25:35
    now saying oh Lila potties yeah which is
  • 25:38
    a Parisian newspaper to be specific
  • 25:41
    looks like possible foreign interference
  • 25:43
    going on with these Yellow Jacket
  • 25:45
    protests and you know who they who they
  • 25:48
    peg right away Russia that's where our
  • 25:55
    T's covering it but this was the Perry
  • 25:58
    jam though yeah yeah there are must be
  • 26:01
    Russia half-truth show the proof I don't
  • 26:03
    think they have any proof at all
  • 26:06
    none whatsoever but yeah that this is
  • 26:09
    the major cover-up in the news and even
  • 26:11
    Democracy Now
  • 26:12
    is not covering it I mean especially not
  • 26:17
    democracy now especially not they would
  • 26:20
    definitely not want to cover because of
  • 26:21
    the climate think yeah well this does
  • 26:24
    kind of bring nobody's coverage so this
  • 26:26
    is the great news systems that we have
  • 26:28
    yeah
  • 26:28
    and they can't cover this and it's
  • 26:30
    exciting riots there's nothing more
  • 26:32
    exciting than riots like this and what's
  • 26:35
    interesting is that you see you know
  • 26:37
    Tina asked me I say what do you think
  • 26:39
    when is this gonna happen here I said it
  • 26:41
    doesn't happen here that's not how we
  • 26:43
    work they don't we only do that kind of
  • 26:45
    stuff when our favorite sports team wins
  • 26:47
    then we do that kind of stuff we don't
  • 26:49
    do it out of anger or anything we know
  • 26:51
    we take to Twitter we don't actually go
  • 26:54
    on mate yeah yeah we don't actually go
  • 26:58
    out and do something about it my job is
  • 27:06
    my work is done here
  • 27:10
    okay this brings me to a little report
  • 27:12
    from the future as I was it's a little
  • 27:14
    presentation I put together for us
  • 27:17
    um and this really comes down to
  • 27:22
    conversations we've had about Alexandria
  • 27:25
    Ocasio Cortez and I believe she's a
  • 27:28
    force to be reckoned with and let this
  • 27:30
    is not about the merits of what she says
  • 27:32
    although it's always fun to stop and and
  • 27:34
    and chuckle about how entertaining the
  • 27:36
    things are that she says because they
  • 27:37
    clearly are not not entirely based in
  • 27:41
    reality and somewhere just funny but she
  • 27:43
    has a following she has a movement I'm
  • 27:46
    seeing the kids like it these are we're
  • 27:48
    talking she looks if she looks like an
  • 27:51
    actress who should be starring in
  • 27:53
    Hamilton
  • 27:54
    well she's gonna star on the big stage
  • 27:56
    this is just the beginning I unless
  • 27:59
    Nancy Pelosi cuts her off dramatically
  • 28:01
    which I don't think she's going to do
  • 28:03
    hmm because the support is garnering I
  • 28:06
    think she already has almost 25
  • 28:08
    Democrats who have signed up to her
  • 28:11
    [Music]
  • 28:16
    and I figured it I might as well look
  • 28:20
    into this green New Deal and understand
  • 28:22
    what it is they're talking about she has
  • 28:24
    all the Millennials following her they
  • 28:26
    love her and imagine this you're born in
  • 28:30
    would say nineteen nineties make it an
  • 28:31
    easy millennial number you grow up
  • 28:34
    hearing one thing consistently
  • 28:38
    you're going to die from climate change
  • 28:40
    now seriously yeah not like you and I
  • 28:44
    who've been around who have seen the old
  • 28:47
    articles we're gonna die cuz it was too
  • 28:49
    cold and in ten years nothing you know
  • 28:51
    we'll all be gone the plan will be
  • 28:52
    obliterated
  • 28:53
    so we witnessed all this not happening
  • 28:55
    which is kind of fun we witnessed it not
  • 28:58
    happening we remembered but when you
  • 29:00
    grow up a kid then you just and your
  • 29:03
    parents are also you know kind of not
  • 29:05
    really engaged in climate science or
  • 29:07
    climate truth just like oh yeah yeah
  • 29:09
    climate change big problem then all you
  • 29:11
    hear is the the bit the grown-ups
  • 29:13
    talking about how horrible and death and
  • 29:16
    destruction we've talked about this it's
  • 29:17
    having an impact and these are the
  • 29:19
    children who grew up with this and have
  • 29:22
    been impacted and believe it so I can't
  • 29:24
    fault them at all it seems in fact I
  • 29:27
    would say if I was the evil genius
  • 29:30
    behind climate change global warming all
  • 29:33
    the megabucks associated with it I would
  • 29:35
    probably want this to be the outcome
  • 29:37
    here come the freshmen here come the new
  • 29:39
    kids they're in their 20s and they're
  • 29:42
    all in on this stuff and it's spilling
  • 29:44
    over everywhere here is the intercept
  • 29:47
    podcast just a short little clip well I
  • 29:49
    think you know it remains to be seen but
  • 29:51
    the kind of basic tenets of it are that
  • 29:53
    we could have shorter work weeks we
  • 29:57
    could have a functional mass transit
  • 30:00
    system for folks who live in New York
  • 30:01
    the MTA just so you understand this is
  • 30:03
    what the Millennials believe fixing
  • 30:06
    climate change will do and she is
  • 30:09
    specifically talking about the green New
  • 30:11
    Deal GND and this is what she believes
  • 30:14
    putting this this grand New Deal in
  • 30:17
    place will achieve well I think you know
  • 30:19
    what remains to be seen but the kind of
  • 30:22
    basic tenants of it are that we could
  • 30:24
    have shorter work weeks we could have a
  • 30:28
    functional mass transit system for folks
  • 30:31
    who live in New York the MTA could
  • 30:32
    actually work maybe beautiful affordable
  • 30:36
    rent control public housing you know a
  • 30:40
    job where our bosses aren't screwing us
  • 30:43
    over sort of any number of things you
  • 30:45
    can imagine but a careful
  • 30:48
    consider fit under the screen umbrella
  • 30:49
    and most importantly the planet wouldn't
  • 30:51
    be burning around us and sort of baking
  • 30:54
    us all into it's baking us all so the
  • 31:00
    way I'd like to do this is indeed let's
  • 31:01
    mock and laugh at everything they say
  • 31:04
    because yeah well and there may be some
  • 31:07
    validity to the to their thinking that
  • 31:09
    the green new deal will solve all these
  • 31:11
    problems but it sounded like this was
  • 31:14
    solving everything the Democratic
  • 31:15
    socialists of America want oh yeah it's
  • 31:18
    always won they always want mass transit
  • 31:20
    to get people out of their cars could to
  • 31:22
    ruin their independence so you can you
  • 31:24
    know get off your horse we you have to
  • 31:25
    get on a bus get on a bus and in San
  • 31:28
    Francisco of course or in most
  • 31:29
    metropolitan areas you have situations
  • 31:31
    probably not as bad as San Francisco
  • 31:33
    where there's beatings on the bus people
  • 31:35
    are pooping on the bus you know everyone
  • 31:38
    thinks you're a loser if as long as we
  • 31:40
    can all poop on the bus then it's okay
  • 31:44
    intersectional pooping as long as we can
  • 31:46
    all poop on the bus it's okay so I'm
  • 31:48
    just showing this to give you a little
  • 31:50
    example I started watching TYT I think
  • 31:54
    it's also the Young Turks is a force to
  • 31:57
    be reckoned with in this arena and and
  • 31:59
    the people are getting on there and
  • 32:01
    they're talking about it and it's
  • 32:03
    starting to move we have this movement
  • 32:06
    called the sunrise movement oh yeah yes
  • 32:10
    the sunrise movement is it doesn't
  • 32:15
    really belong to anyone according to
  • 32:17
    their website there's no on the upper
  • 32:19
    ball yes I mean about us there's nothing
  • 32:21
    now if you it says donate and that'll
  • 32:25
    take you to the act blue website which
  • 32:28
    is really that's not an outfit that does
  • 32:30
    anything per se but they're kind of a
  • 32:32
    clearinghouse for yes for these sorts
  • 32:35
    towards it that you have to pay yeah
  • 32:37
    patreon huh another thing we got to talk
  • 32:38
    about so here is one of the what is her
  • 32:43
    name
  • 32:45
    moschini Prakash and she's on with chunk
  • 32:48
    on The Young Turks just to talk about
  • 32:50
    the green New Deal and the sunrise
  • 32:52
    movement just to give you a little
  • 32:53
    background and and these are not stupid
  • 32:56
    people they've just been incredibly
  • 32:58
    misinformed from there the men
  • 33:00
    they they took their first breath yes
  • 33:03
    they've been propagandizing this is how
  • 33:04
    it works so movement is working to build
  • 33:09
    an army of young people to stop climate
  • 33:12
    change and create millions of good jobs
  • 33:14
    for our generation we see ourselves as
  • 33:16
    working to actually transform the
  • 33:19
    outrage and frustration that young
  • 33:21
    people have felt at witnessing so much
  • 33:24
    political stagnation and an inaction on
  • 33:27
    the issue of climate change for our
  • 33:29
    entire lives we've known about the issue
  • 33:32
    of climate change twice as long as I've
  • 33:34
    even been alive on this planet you see
  • 33:36
    you see you understand what's happening
  • 33:38
    with these kids now and have yet to do
  • 33:40
    something meaningful about it so we are
  • 33:42
    really working at the Nexus of protest
  • 33:45
    organizing and protest demonstrations
  • 33:48
    things that really help us get our story
  • 33:51
    out into the public and and getting
  • 33:52
    people and politicians paying attention
  • 33:54
    to the crisis at hand and combining that
  • 33:57
    with some hard-nosed political and
  • 34:00
    electoral organizing but we have
  • 34:01
    completely altered young people across
  • 34:04
    this country have altered what is
  • 34:06
    politically possible and feasible in
  • 34:08
    this country on the issue of climate
  • 34:10
    three weeks ago I was seeing headlines
  • 34:12
    that said dense damp down hopes on
  • 34:15
    climate for next Congress cycle and now
  • 34:19
    I'm seeing headlines like climate change
  • 34:21
    tops Democratic agenda for 2024 2019
  • 34:26
    2020 and beyond that is unbelievable to
  • 34:29
    me and it happened because thousands of
  • 34:31
    young people started organizing to the
  • 34:35
    crisis like a green new deal we've done
  • 34:38
    hundreds of office visits to
  • 34:40
    congressional politicians asking them to
  • 34:42
    support Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's
  • 34:44
    Select Committee for a green new deal
  • 34:47
    and that would create a plan that at the
  • 34:50
    true scale and scope of the climate
  • 34:51
    crisis so young people are energized we
  • 34:54
    are motivated we understand what is at
  • 34:56
    stake with the wildfires that the
  • 34:59
    drought-induced wildfires that have been
  • 35:00
    destroying California and the west coast
  • 35:03
    the IPCC report that came out saying
  • 35:05
    that we have 12 years to radically
  • 35:07
    transform our economy and society to
  • 35:09
    protect human civilization as you
  • 35:11
    it's young people are wicked and we are
  • 35:14
    also ready to take action so and I
  • 35:17
    believe that I believe that they are
  • 35:18
    ready to take action do you want to say
  • 35:21
    some thing is there's all these little
  • 35:25
    zingers that they keep throwing in there
  • 35:27
    like the little phrase you use create
  • 35:29
    millions of good job
  • 35:32
    oh yeah well so this comes from the
  • 35:37
    actual document which I took the trouble
  • 35:39
    to go get and markup a little bit from
  • 35:42
    the Congressional website for Alexandria
  • 35:46
    Ocasio Cortez it isn't G indeed is
  • 35:48
    calling for a select committee for a
  • 35:50
    green new deal and this was interesting
  • 35:52
    it's not just a couple pages are marked
  • 35:54
    up a few things I've never really looked
  • 35:56
    into how committees work and how they're
  • 35:58
    put together what a select committee
  • 35:59
    even means what we do know is that to be
  • 36:03
    on a committee you have to pay millions
  • 36:05
    of dollars into the party into the party
  • 36:08
    coffers and that's how you get on we
  • 36:10
    this has been we've discussed this in
  • 36:12
    great lengths and sometimes you know a
  • 36:14
    chairmanship can be what 5 million bucks
  • 36:16
    or something you've got to bring into
  • 36:18
    the party coffee to get that goes to the
  • 36:20
    party so the Select Committee I didn't I
  • 36:22
    didn't realize it but a select committee
  • 36:23
    for a green new deal the means that the
  • 36:26
    Speaker of the House actually selects
  • 36:28
    the 15 members that are being proposed
  • 36:30
    here so that would be Nancy Pelosi and
  • 36:31
    will be nine of the majority and it'll
  • 36:34
    be six of the opposition it will have
  • 36:38
    juror it will have legislative
  • 36:40
    jurisdiction this select committee which
  • 36:42
    Acacio AOC is promoting and these select
  • 36:48
    committee shall have the authority to
  • 36:49
    develop a detailed national industrial
  • 36:51
    economic mobilization plan to be known
  • 36:54
    as the green new deal for the transition
  • 36:56
    of the United States economy to become
  • 36:58
    carbon neutral and to significantly
  • 37:01
    drawdown and capture greenhouse gases
  • 37:04
    from the environment it will be prepared
  • 37:07
    in Council so we're gonna have leaders
  • 37:09
    from business labor state local
  • 37:10
    governments and academia will be
  • 37:12
    involved in this in this green new deal
  • 37:14
    they can bring in research institutions
  • 37:17
    and everything they do will have been
  • 37:19
    planned and executed he no longer than
  • 37:22
    10 years from the start of this plan
  • 37:24
    which would be in
  • 37:25
    2020 and then that kind of comes down to
  • 37:28
    the 12 years you just heard about the
  • 37:29
    ten years by 2030 we have to have
  • 37:32
    everything fixed we have to be
  • 37:33
    completely off fossil fuels otherwise we
  • 37:35
    all die then they're going to create the
  • 37:39
    soda by it by 22 January 1st 2020
  • 37:41
    they'll have their complete plan then
  • 37:43
    they'll have legislation they're going
  • 37:45
    to draw up by March and they will also
  • 37:49
    have investigative jurisdiction which is
  • 37:51
    a big groan for me because that just
  • 37:53
    means they're gonna do more studies
  • 37:56
    funding I'll get to that in a second let
  • 37:59
    me go to thee there we go scope here we
  • 38:02
    go the scope of the plan for a green new
  • 38:04
    deal and the draft legislation and there
  • 38:06
    has a number of points here in each case
  • 38:11
    no longer than 10 years from the start
  • 38:13
    of the execution of the plan 100% of
  • 38:16
    national power generation will be from
  • 38:18
    renewable sources 100 percent within ten
  • 38:22
    years there will be built a mess there
  • 38:26
    will be built a national energy
  • 38:27
    efficient smart grid whatever that means
  • 38:31
    that means you can shut it down remotely
  • 38:33
    from China bingo we will upgrade every
  • 38:37
    residential and industrial building for
  • 38:39
    state-of-the-art energy efficiency
  • 38:41
    comfort and safety decarbonizing the
  • 38:44
    manufacturing agricultural and other
  • 38:46
    industries I know how you can
  • 38:48
    decarbonize agricultural industry but ok
  • 38:51
    the funding massive investment in the
  • 38:55
    drawdown and capture of greenhouse gases
  • 38:58
    - I find to be an interesting choice of
  • 39:00
    words they have some frequently asked
  • 39:04
    questions and this was my favorite
  • 39:08
    so here's one of their facts why do we
  • 39:10
    need a sweeping green New Deal
  • 39:11
    investment program why can't we just
  • 39:13
    rely on regulations and taxes alone such
  • 39:15
    as a carbon tax or an eventual ban on
  • 39:18
    fossil fuels and the answer is
  • 39:20
    regulations taxes can indeed change some
  • 39:23
    behavior it's a certain possibility to
  • 39:25
    argue that if we had put in place target
  • 39:27
    regulations oh how about my printer cut
  • 39:30
    this off damn it sorry my printer cut
  • 39:34
    off the right side of the page climate
  • 39:36
    change there you go
  • 39:42
    well then I'll just go straight to the B
  • 39:45
    here since I can't read it here why
  • 39:47
    should the government have a big role in
  • 39:49
    driving and making any required
  • 39:50
    investments why not just incentivize the
  • 39:52
    private sector and they say two things
  • 39:55
    here two main reasons scale and time
  • 39:57
    first scale the level of investment
  • 40:00
    required will be massive and even if all
  • 40:04
    the billionaires and companies came
  • 40:06
    together and were willing to pour their
  • 40:08
    resources put the resource at their
  • 40:09
    disposal into this investment the
  • 40:11
    aggregate value of the investments they
  • 40:13
    could make would not be sufficient for
  • 40:15
    example the one trillion dollars over 10
  • 40:18
    years plan for investment in the green
  • 40:20
    economy that has been floated by some
  • 40:21
    policy makers has been criticized by
  • 40:24
    climate experts as only as wholly
  • 40:26
    inadequate one trillion is the entire
  • 40:28
    market cap of Amazon think about that
  • 40:32
    so think I need a lot more they think
  • 40:34
    and second time and this is another so
  • 40:37
    you just heard scale the level of
  • 40:39
    investment required will be massive time
  • 40:41
    the speed of investment required will be
  • 40:44
    massive
  • 40:47
    I think they just copy-pasted even all
  • 40:50
    the billionaires and the companies could
  • 40:52
    make the investments required they would
  • 40:53
    not be able to pull together they
  • 40:54
    coordinated response in the narrow
  • 40:55
    window of time required to jumpstart
  • 40:57
    major new products projects in major new
  • 40:59
    sectors so it's massive investment
  • 41:02
    massive time it's all just massive and
  • 41:05
    how will the government pay for these
  • 41:07
    investments well many will say massive
  • 41:10
    government investment how in the world
  • 41:12
    will we pay for this the answer is in
  • 41:15
    the same way we paid for the 2008 bank
  • 41:18
    bailout and extended quantitative easing
  • 41:20
    programs the same ways we paid for World
  • 41:23
    War two and many other Wars the Federal
  • 41:25
    Reserve can extend credit to power these
  • 41:28
    projects and investments new public
  • 41:30
    banks can be created as in World War two
  • 41:32
    to extend credit and a combination of
  • 41:35
    various taxation tools including taxes
  • 41:37
    on carbon and other emissions and
  • 41:39
    progressive wealth taxes can be employed
  • 41:41
    so they just say in fine American
  • 41:45
    tradition print up the money and they
  • 41:49
    end at what I give them credit is
  • 41:51
    unbelievable I give them credit for
  • 41:53
    knowing how the system works
  • 41:55
    nobody not knowing how it works now this
  • 41:58
    green New Deal is not new this is the
  • 42:01
    exact same deal popped up Oh
  • 42:04
    seven years ago with Obama and today
  • 42:07
    we're going to look at the green New
  • 42:09
    Deal
  • 42:09
    well President Obama has embraced the
  • 42:12
    idea of a green stimulus package
  • 42:13
    pledging some 150 billion dollars of
  • 42:16
    investments in low-carbon infrastructure
  • 42:19
    in order to create jobs Gordon Brown has
  • 42:22
    also espoused a green new deal in his
  • 42:25
    case it's to also boost employment with
  • 42:27
    eco-friendly transport and renewables at
  • 42:29
    the heart of his strategy so are we
  • 42:31
    going to see a rush to green investing
  • 42:33
    after all the returns last year we're
  • 42:35
    relatively poor and if business takes
  • 42:37
    the money will it be able to actually
  • 42:38
    deliver the reduction in co2 emissions
  • 42:41
    that the world is now demanding so it
  • 42:42
    was about a 150 billion dollar try that
  • 42:45
    we did that didn't seem to go anywhere I
  • 42:47
    didn't hear of any great successes did
  • 42:49
    you know I all I heard is they got worse
  • 42:52
    marginalized kleiner perkins as an
  • 42:54
    investment vehicle that's right because
  • 42:58
    you know they brought in Al Gore and the
  • 42:59
    next thing you know they're throwing
  • 43:00
    money it's stupid green project sure
  • 43:03
    they lost their shirts on that yeah and
  • 43:06
    and this was the same era that this is
  • 43:10
    when Nancy Pelosi was the Speaker of the
  • 43:12
    House the last time and she's this with
  • 43:15
    that jobs jobs jobs jobs things comes
  • 43:17
    from that we used they'd been using on
  • 43:19
    the show for the last eight years yeah
  • 43:21
    and she's and they presented this kind
  • 43:24
    of this proposal that was gonna pass and
  • 43:26
    and Gohmert called it you know the piece
  • 43:29
    of turd or something like that in front
  • 43:31
    of really Gohmert did that Gohmert has
  • 43:33
    some comment and and the thing never
  • 43:35
    inure was always passed and it had all
  • 43:38
    this legislation about how you have to
  • 43:40
    build your home in a certain way and yet
  • 43:42
    that's insulation or you you get fined
  • 43:45
    and no there's all these things and it
  • 43:47
    was it was this huge package that the
  • 43:49
    Senate just said no and that was the end
  • 43:52
    of that what's gonna happen but these
  • 43:53
    guys and just like the Senators you know
  • 43:55
    we're not gonna do this
  • 43:56
    well this there's okay and by the way
  • 43:58
    the Senate was dominated by Democrats at
  • 44:00
    the time go yeah well so they're just
  • 44:04
    before the weekend there was a town hall
  • 44:06
    and the town hall was hosted mainly by
  • 44:09
    Bernie Sanders who is very much with the
  • 44:13
    young kids still the Millennials they
  • 44:14
    all love him Bernie's all on the on that
  • 44:16
    popular tip and they brought on guests
  • 44:19
    many guests including our girl
  • 44:21
    AOC from the DSA hey but they started
  • 44:25
    off with a little video again just
  • 44:28
    setting the stage so you understand how
  • 44:30
    kids today feel about it but listen to
  • 44:32
    what she's saying and this this really
  • 44:34
    confirms my point not only as to what
  • 44:36
    these kids grew up with why they're
  • 44:38
    thinking that way but there's a little
  • 44:39
    nice little gimme in here I'm 21 years
  • 44:42
    old
  • 44:45
    growing up dealing with hurricanes was a
  • 44:48
    regular occurrence for me and my family
  • 44:50
    I remember being really little and
  • 44:52
    feeling afraid because sometimes my dad
  • 44:54
    would have to work during the storm but
  • 44:55
    it wasn't until my family moved to Fort
  • 44:57
    Lauderdale Florida that I really became
  • 44:59
    closely acquainted with the devastating
  • 45:01
    impacts of sea level rise we moved
  • 45:03
    somewhere that sometimes called the
  • 45:05
    Venice of America and it's well known
  • 45:07
    for its beautiful waterways and coasts
  • 45:10
    my family was lucky enough to live just
  • 45:12
    one block away from the beach when we
  • 45:14
    moved I started to notice that every
  • 45:16
    time a storm would hit the street in
  • 45:18
    front of my apartment would flood and
  • 45:20
    sometimes it would flood even when it
  • 45:22
    wasn't raining local businesses would
  • 45:24
    have to put out sandbags to stop the
  • 45:25
    water from coming into the shores my
  • 45:27
    parents would have to move the cars up
  • 45:29
    to higher ground for parking there was
  • 45:31
    this weird dystopia where regular people
  • 45:33
    were being forced to move up experts and
  • 45:35
    the oceans tidal patterns and sea level
  • 45:38
    rise on really bad days
  • 45:40
    to my apartment building would be
  • 45:41
    blocked off from flooding at the time I
  • 45:43
    didn't know that any of this had to do
  • 45:45
    with something called global climate
  • 45:47
    change or sea-level rise
  • 45:49
    I just knew that this was an everyday
  • 45:50
    part of my family's life then I went to
  • 45:53
    college and I learned that flooding it
  • 45:56
    with hurricanes were just warning signs
  • 45:59
    and more drastic changes to come for
  • 46:01
    Florida and for the rest of the world so
  • 46:04
    when she went to college that's when she
  • 46:08
    learned that she was going to die from
  • 46:10
    this ugly climate change that's where
  • 46:12
    they taught her because you're living on
  • 46:14
    the front and beachfront property and in
  • 46:17
    it during a storm you get a little
  • 46:18
    little flooding which has probably been
  • 46:20
    going on since the 1800s well they call
  • 46:23
    it advance the Venice of Florida so yeah
  • 46:25
    it's been this has been a problem for
  • 46:27
    since before she was born once she got
  • 46:30
    to college that's when that's when she
  • 46:32
    was told what this all was about and
  • 46:34
    that's what these kids are growing up
  • 46:36
    with if you're right I think this is a
  • 46:39
    very good point you're making now we get
  • 46:41
    into pressing this is the jump normally
  • 46:44
    we put depressing stuff like this at the
  • 46:45
    end of the show they donate oh yeah we
  • 46:52
    do the depressing stuff up front we do a
  • 46:54
    happy-go-lucky at the end so people
  • 46:56
    donate if we're switching it up John
  • 46:58
    just going crazy with the format today
  • 46:59
    any anything to help here we go to the
  • 47:03
    roundtable Bernie is of course he's the
  • 47:07
    conversate combo Tricia is about the
  • 47:10
    report that was released that was Neal
  • 47:12
    covered up and you know does the
  • 47:15
    question here really is does Alexandria
  • 47:18
    Acacio Cortez have you know it does she
  • 47:21
    does she have the solutions here is she
  • 47:23
    right oh and I might want to point out
  • 47:25
    that on this panel is also Van Jones Van
  • 47:29
    Jones the heck well you'll recall he was
  • 47:32
    the greens are of the Obama
  • 47:34
    administration yeah he was the guy who
  • 47:37
    brought in the Green Deal initially and
  • 47:40
    got out stood because it was actually
  • 47:42
    weird I think he was associated with
  • 47:45
    some odd people and there was it he
  • 47:49
    actually was all in on 9/11 like 9/11
  • 47:52
    inside job
  • 47:53
    out of the Obama administration yeah get
  • 47:56
    that
  • 47:56
    let me see but I got a link here what
  • 47:59
    exactly did they accuse him was it was
  • 48:01
    Jones was under fire for his past
  • 48:03
    affiliation with 9/11 conspiracy
  • 48:05
    truthers I'm reading this from a 2009
  • 48:09
    article and for calling Republicans
  • 48:12
    assholes in a video before he was
  • 48:14
    appointed to the Obama administration
  • 48:16
    Republicans Republicans then also began
  • 48:19
    using him to escalate criticism of the
  • 48:21
    administration's deployment of czars you
  • 48:24
    recall those days across the policy
  • 48:26
    landscape saying they were being used to
  • 48:27
    avoid Senate scrutiny of appointees but
  • 48:30
    more problematic was the fact that
  • 48:32
    Jones's controversial statements fit
  • 48:34
    snugly into the narrative wove woven by
  • 48:37
    some conservative critics of Obama as a
  • 48:39
    dangerous leftist a critique that goes
  • 48:41
    back to the campaign and was based on
  • 48:43
    much of his past work as a community
  • 48:46
    organizer with associations of the likes
  • 48:48
    of Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers so
  • 48:50
    there was a lot going on when Van Jones
  • 48:52
    got kicked out and he had to fall on his
  • 48:54
    sword I remember it well we were doing
  • 48:56
    the show so he's on this and he of
  • 48:58
    course is weaseling in on the action
  • 49:00
    that's why he's got a show on CNN again
  • 49:02
    it's all coming around the grand new
  • 49:04
    deal is President Trump right now it's a
  • 49:09
    hard one I want you to think about it
  • 49:11
    before you respond ideas out there that
  • 49:16
    would enable us to create millions of
  • 49:19
    good-paying jobs now this was your
  • 49:21
    question John good millions of
  • 49:23
    good-paying jobs let's get to the bottom
  • 49:26
    of it it's it's unsurprising that the
  • 49:35
    response to any bold proposal that let's
  • 49:40
    not mock her for her voice let's just
  • 49:42
    what just bathe in it it's like it's
  • 49:46
    like a potato army like a bath of razor
  • 49:48
    blades but I have to say and again I'm
  • 49:52
    just looking at the media personality
  • 49:53
    here girls got it she's got this she's
  • 49:56
    got everything you want you can hate her
  • 49:58
    you can love her it's all in there and
  • 49:59
    the voice cuts through some may call it
  • 50:02
    piercing it cuts through so fuels
  • 50:05
    it's it's unsurprising that the response
  • 50:08
    to any bold proposal that we have is to
  • 50:12
    incite fear to incite fear of life by
  • 50:15
    the way I just have to say that it's
  • 50:18
    crazy about how everyone especially the
  • 50:20
    Republicans and the president they
  • 50:22
    incite fear but that's exactly what
  • 50:24
    she's doing
  • 50:25
    even in these words to any bold proposal
  • 50:29
    that we have is to incite fear to incite
  • 50:33
    fear of loss to incite fear of others to
  • 50:35
    incite fear of our future but the only
  • 50:39
    way we are going to get out of this
  • 50:41
    situation is by choosing to be
  • 50:43
    courageous yeah that's the only way
  • 50:46
    we're going to get out of this and when
  • 50:48
    first of all it's just plain wrong the
  • 50:50
    idea that we're going to somehow lose
  • 50:53
    economic activity as a matter of fact
  • 50:55
    it's not just possible that we will
  • 50:58
    create jobs and economic activity by
  • 51:02
    transitioning to renewable energy but
  • 51:04
    it's inevitable that we are gonna create
  • 51:06
    jobs it's inevitable that we're gonna
  • 51:08
    create industry and it's inevitable that
  • 51:11
    we can use the transition to a hundred
  • 51:13
    percent renewable energy as the vehicle
  • 51:16
    to truly deliver and establish economic
  • 51:18
    social and racial justice and that is
  • 51:23
    our proposal and that is what we are
  • 51:25
    here to do because in the depths of
  • 51:27
    darkness in the depths of despair which
  • 51:30
    what we last saw listen this is really
  • 51:32
    important what are you doing you're
  • 51:35
    rummaging around you're dropping stuff
  • 51:36
    are you she's now gonna give us a little
  • 51:41
    history lesson for a second I couldn't
  • 51:43
    figure out what she's talking about
  • 51:44
    this is where she connects the green new
  • 51:46
    deal to FDR's New Deal of America that
  • 51:51
    is our proposal and that is what we are
  • 51:54
    here to do because in the depths of
  • 51:56
    darkness in the depths of despair which
  • 51:58
    what we last saw you know when we think
  • 52:01
    about where we were when the New Deal
  • 52:03
    was established we were a nation in
  • 52:06
    depression in Great Depression we were a
  • 52:08
    nation on the brink of war we saw the
  • 52:11
    rise of fascism creeping across in in in
  • 52:15
    Europe and no one would
  • 52:18
    that a nation so poor so scarce and so
  • 52:21
    in such dire straits as we were in that
  • 52:23
    time could pursue such a bold economic
  • 52:25
    agenda but we chose to do it anyway we
  • 52:29
    had the courage and that is what this
  • 52:31
    moment demands of us right now that's
  • 52:34
    what we have to do we have to this is
  • 52:36
    going to be the Great Society we shot
  • 52:39
    the civil rights movement of our
  • 52:40
    generation that is the scale that is the
  • 52:43
    scale of the ambition that this movement
  • 52:45
    is going to rock so what she's saying
  • 52:51
    here this is the moonshot which by the
  • 52:54
    way it would just be easier to make a
  • 52:56
    video about how great you are with the
  • 52:58
    green new deal and just put it out there
  • 52:59
    pretend we did it just like the moonshot
  • 53:01
    it'll be like FDR's New Deal is this
  • 53:04
    indeed like FDR's New Deal what was
  • 53:06
    FDR's New Deal
  • 53:08
    Jhansi Dvorak no if I could put it in
  • 53:12
    the nutshell it was a reorganization of
  • 53:15
    the country somewhat and also putting
  • 53:18
    people to work in make-work jobs like
  • 53:21
    the WPA what's projects administration
  • 53:25
    just get the Civilian Conservation Corps
  • 53:28
    if you look at it objectively the New
  • 53:30
    Deal didn't even work it kept us in a
  • 53:33
    depression longer than we should have
  • 53:35
    been in one oh really
  • 53:37
    I'd not heard that one yet but all of
  • 53:39
    you you'll hear it if you just look
  • 53:40
    around enough hmm I don't know this
  • 53:45
    woman is crazy we weren't a poor
  • 53:47
    starving skinny little country that's
  • 53:51
    what she's got in office we were in a
  • 53:53
    depression yeah that's what she's saying
  • 53:55
    she says we were a third-world country
  • 53:57
    we think that the New Deal we got out of
  • 53:59
    that well just remember this is a
  • 54:02
    millennial when she thinks depression
  • 54:06
    all she knows about the depression
  • 54:08
    because of course she hasn't read up on
  • 54:09
    it is the black-and-white photo of the
  • 54:12
    men standing in line for jobs where
  • 54:15
    their hats are standing in line for soup
  • 54:17
    kitchens that is the entire history of
  • 54:19
    the depression in the American
  • 54:20
    experience these days you think they
  • 54:21
    went into anything deeper than that
  • 54:23
    clearly not otherwise she wouldn't be
  • 54:25
    suggesting these things so this is the
  • 54:27
    idea and it's not new is to create new
  • 54:31
    industry force industry away from oil
  • 54:35
    economy which the United States has
  • 54:37
    force it into things that do that have
  • 54:41
    not been proven to actually work
  • 54:43
    financially which is wind and solar now
  • 54:45
    if she said let's do nuclear I'd be
  • 54:49
    all-in I'm like yeah I think you can do
  • 54:50
    something with that I don't know if you
  • 54:51
    can change the law economy Chile that
  • 54:53
    nuke is kept out of the circle and they
  • 54:57
    wanted to abolish all the use of all
  • 54:59
    fossil fuels which is interesting to me
  • 55:02
    because then she won't be able to fly
  • 55:04
    from state to state to do this
  • 55:07
    propaganda how do you get around with
  • 55:09
    how do you fly a plane or do outer II
  • 55:11
    planes planes yes that one guy you have
  • 55:16
    one guy in a super lightweight plane
  • 55:18
    with a couple batteries has been able to
  • 55:19
    get off the ground that's for 20 minutes
  • 55:22
    all right we move on so this and what I
  • 55:27
    like about her idea and what the
  • 55:29
    thinking and I'm sure it's not her alone
  • 55:30
    there's other people behind her there
  • 55:32
    must be is all the problems you see
  • 55:39
    everything and the problems the kids
  • 55:40
    deal with is racism other ism sexism
  • 55:46
    Nazism hate ISM whatever ISM you want to
  • 55:49
    put in there all of that will be solved
  • 55:51
    by solving this problem because she and
  • 55:54
    the Democratic socialists of America
  • 55:56
    want to redistribute everything just
  • 55:59
    every job that has anything to do with
  • 56:01
    energy wiped off the map map bring it
  • 56:04
    back give everybody the same salary the
  • 56:06
    same living wage the same uniform
  • 56:08
    probably and march along to work and do
  • 56:11
    the good work to solve our climate
  • 56:13
    crisis how do we you know I think what
  • 56:19
    we all understand is that we're fighting
  • 56:20
    for the future of the planet Alexandria
  • 56:23
    is talking about is that not only can we
  • 56:27
    effectively combat climate change but in
  • 56:29
    the process we can do good economics and
  • 56:32
    create millions of good-paying jobs here
  • 56:35
    and throughout the world
  • 56:37
    yeah absolutely and it's important to
  • 56:41
    also talk about the fact that this is
  • 56:44
    not just an economic solution is that
  • 56:46
    this is how we this is the the mechanism
  • 56:48
    through which we can really deliver
  • 56:50
    justice to communities that have been
  • 56:53
    underserved the water in Flint is still
  • 56:56
    dirty the water in Flint is still dirty
  • 56:59
    we've got children van and I were
  • 57:02
    talking earlier we've got children that
  • 57:03
    are that are choking on the smoke in
  • 57:05
    California those same there's same
  • 57:08
    children and rather children newer I got
  • 57:11
    that was a good one by the way that that
  • 57:13
    that got to me cause you see these kids
  • 57:18
    will have those children in Puerto Rico
  • 57:21
    Archer are choking on the fungal spores
  • 57:23
    because we have not recuperated from the
  • 57:25
    crisis girl I'm choking on fungal spores
  • 57:27
    in Austin stop with that and the mold
  • 57:30
    from the floods is taking up all of
  • 57:32
    these people's homes we have in Justices
  • 57:36
    in this country those in Justices are
  • 57:38
    concentrated in front-line communities
  • 57:40
    and indigenous black and brown
  • 57:41
    communities they are the ones that
  • 57:43
    experienced the greatest depths of this
  • 57:45
    injustice but if we chose and if we have
  • 57:49
    the moral political and economic courage
  • 57:51
    to say
  • 57:52
    gonna fix all the pipes in Flint we
  • 57:55
    would put a lot of people to work there
  • 58:02
    you go so it's putting people to work to
  • 58:05
    clean your pipes that's okay so you
  • 58:08
    create I don't know what do you think
  • 58:12
    10,000 plumbers in Flint to fix all the
  • 58:16
    pipes because you want to get it done
  • 58:17
    quick quickly at that I think that
  • 58:19
    number might work yeah and you also have
  • 58:22
    some construction guys that back hose
  • 58:24
    and things digging up you know
  • 58:25
    everything they can to get rid of these
  • 58:27
    old pipes so you just put a whole effort
  • 58:29
    on that and then you get that job done
  • 58:30
    then what do you do with these 10,000
  • 58:32
    plumbers and that are in Flint use them
  • 58:35
    for fuel obviously the plan has a lot of
  • 58:40
    holes in it but that doesn't mean Inc
  • 58:42
    that doesn't mean that the people will
  • 58:44
    not be convinced by this there's a lot
  • 58:45
    of abstractions extraction extraction
  • 58:48
    Airy thinking going on it's like all
  • 58:50
    that'll get solved in this done is all
  • 58:52
    fine but yes I want to mention something
  • 58:56
    cuz everybody's been all these things
  • 58:57
    there's a big article I know
  • 58:59
    don't underestimate AOC don't
  • 59:01
    underestimate this woman don't mock her
  • 59:03
    because you know that and you're kind of
  • 59:05
    on the same boat no I said from day one
  • 59:08
    I said people laughing about her it
  • 59:11
    sounds exactly the way people laughed at
  • 59:13
    Trump that's what I say I understand
  • 59:15
    what you're saying and I but you would
  • 59:17
    be on it I would say if there's an
  • 59:19
    argument to be made you're gonna be
  • 59:20
    making the arguments in support of her
  • 59:23
    yes of course yes of course now I think
  • 59:28
    she's just too stupid personally to get
  • 59:32
    very far and I think you now you just
  • 59:34
    heard the Trump thing at me because all
  • 59:35
    I guess what they said about Trump is
  • 59:37
    too stupid no and he sounds stupid he
  • 59:42
    does he sound stupid he does just like
  • 59:44
    aoc sounds stupid but I think she's
  • 59:47
    genuinely stupid
  • 59:50
    I don't know if he's stupid or just you
  • 59:52
    know street smarts no no no no no I'm
  • 59:55
    just gonna say billionaire that gives
  • 59:57
    him some credit for being at least not a
  • 59:58
    complete idiot thing I didn't clip it
  • 1:00:01
    but during this conversation they
  • 1:00:03
    actually said in America it seems like
  • 1:00:05
    you're only deemed intelligent if you
  • 1:00:09
    make a lot of money and you just prove
  • 1:00:11
    that and I not know I didn't he said you
  • 1:00:15
    just said a guy who makes a lot of money
  • 1:00:17
    he can't be stupid but no I said I
  • 1:00:19
    didn't say it was intelligent though
  • 1:00:21
    they they said that you you're
  • 1:00:22
    intelligent if you make a lot of money
  • 1:00:23
    I'm saying you can't be really stupid
  • 1:00:26
    and make a lot of money
  • 1:00:29
    there's a little different
  • 1:00:33
    I'm not gonna belabor the point she is
  • 1:00:35
    not stupid she's highly intelligent but
  • 1:00:38
    this is mind control and she's all in
  • 1:00:40
    she has no economics degree that as far
  • 1:00:44
    as I know but it also doesn't matter
  • 1:00:47
    because she has an entire Legion of
  • 1:00:50
    politicians lining up behind her they
  • 1:00:52
    know they know it's not gonna happen
  • 1:00:54
    they don't give a crap follow her follow
  • 1:00:56
    the power they're following the power
  • 1:00:59
    and you would argue they're wisely
  • 1:01:01
    wisely following the power but stop we
  • 1:01:04
    have breaking news we got it we got to
  • 1:01:06
    say something about trauma can we
  • 1:01:07
    interrupt this for you make an
  • 1:01:09
    announcement about your shoes we need at
  • 1:01:14
    least a half-hour discussion right about
  • 1:01:16
    your shoes the very kidding it's a funny
  • 1:01:23
    no but but the exact same day as the
  • 1:01:26
    Trump administration's climate report
  • 1:01:29
    which they tried to burry Barry which
  • 1:01:32
    they tried to air a month early the day
  • 1:01:35
    after Thanksgiving
  • 1:01:36
    that same day they spent in prime time
  • 1:01:39
    talking about my shoes and it by the way
  • 1:01:42
    that was that the Trump administration
  • 1:01:45
    talking about your shoes with the news
  • 1:01:47
    media I'm not sure you may you may have
  • 1:01:48
    to look for your enemies elsewhere but
  • 1:01:50
    yes that is what I talk about when I say
  • 1:01:52
    being unseen is that they won't even
  • 1:01:54
    bring it up they don't bring up
  • 1:01:58
    Americans that make less than 40,000 or
  • 1:02:01
    50,000 dollars a year they don't bring
  • 1:02:03
    up the fact that we have some of the
  • 1:02:06
    large we have amassed some of the
  • 1:02:07
    largest amounts of wealth in American
  • 1:02:09
    history but we have never seen so many
  • 1:02:12
    people struggling and living paycheck to
  • 1:02:15
    paycheck in the way that we are today oh
  • 1:02:17
    I think we have two more clips and I'm
  • 1:02:20
    done now we bring in Van Jones he will
  • 1:02:23
    promote himself well um first of all I
  • 1:02:26
    just it just brings tears to your eyes
  • 1:02:31
    it's just unbelievable and Bernie myself
  • 1:02:37
    and a bunch of other people here we
  • 1:02:39
    tried to take this hill yeah it was if
  • 1:02:41
    we tried to take the gym
  • 1:02:42
    in 2008 yeah but you know I was a nut
  • 1:02:45
    job a big part of Obama's agenda was
  • 1:02:48
    essentially the green new deal but you
  • 1:02:50
    know I talked about 9/11 truthers I had
  • 1:02:52
    a job in the White House to try to
  • 1:02:54
    implement it right wing came after me I
  • 1:02:57
    had to resign under fire rewriting
  • 1:03:03
    history van
  • 1:03:04
    Wow that's why I read that's why I read
  • 1:03:09
    to you what actually it happened I knew
  • 1:03:11
    this was coming the guy just thought but
  • 1:03:12
    of course we all gloss over the errors
  • 1:03:15
    in our history White House to try to
  • 1:03:16
    implement it right wing remember had to
  • 1:03:20
    resign under fire then they came after
  • 1:03:24
    bill and we couldn't get it done but I
  • 1:03:29
    think you're going to get it done and
  • 1:03:38
    [Music]
  • 1:03:40
    we're just we're getting well yes
  • 1:03:46
    remember millennial rather than talk
  • 1:03:49
    about my book the green collar economy
  • 1:03:55
    the other thing I think about your
  • 1:03:57
    politics that's interesting is you your
  • 1:04:00
    generation uses term intersectionality
  • 1:04:01
    which I've had to look up but it's
  • 1:04:06
    I think we should call the rainbow
  • 1:04:09
    coalition back in the 80s and 90s but
  • 1:04:11
    you guys have taken it to a different
  • 1:04:12
    level can you just talk about
  • 1:04:15
    we had a slogan ten years ago green jobs
  • 1:04:18
    not jails that we saw a criminal justice
  • 1:04:22
    in economic justice and environmental
  • 1:04:23
    justice is one fight that those kids
  • 1:04:26
    standing on street corners we don't have
  • 1:04:28
    you know disposable resources we don't
  • 1:04:30
    have disposable species we're never
  • 1:04:32
    disposable children are neighborhoods
  • 1:04:33
    either it's all precious and those kids
  • 1:04:36
    could be putting up those solar panels
  • 1:04:37
    like like Bernie was saying and there's
  • 1:04:39
    your good weekend job right there John
  • 1:04:41
    those kids running around and gangs what
  • 1:04:43
    could they be doing on the weekend they
  • 1:04:45
    could be putting up solar panels
  • 1:04:47
    Solutions is what we're about yeah
  • 1:04:49
    that's what they want to do they want
  • 1:04:51
    kids to put solar panels on their roofs
  • 1:04:54
    disposable resources we don't have
  • 1:04:56
    disposable species we're never
  • 1:04:57
    disposable children are neighborhoods
  • 1:04:59
    either it's all precious and those kids
  • 1:05:01
    could be putting up those solar panels
  • 1:05:02
    like like Bernie was saying and making a
  • 1:05:05
    positive difference can you just speak
  • 1:05:06
    to the intersectional power of your
  • 1:05:09
    green New Deal
  • 1:05:10
    okay now this is that so this is the
  • 1:05:12
    meat of it she's going to speak to the
  • 1:05:14
    intersectional power of her green New
  • 1:05:17
    Deal
  • 1:05:17
    I know a second a hint of mockery in
  • 1:05:23
    your voice and you condemn me for saying
  • 1:05:27
    she's stupid I'm not saying she's stupid
  • 1:05:31
    well maybe you need to define stupid
  • 1:05:33
    because you can't fix stupid that's the
  • 1:05:36
    point I'm making can't fix stupid
  • 1:05:39
    all right go on I'll accept the mockery
  • 1:05:42
    in your voice you can now play it which
  • 1:05:45
    I believe is probably going to be the
  • 1:05:46
    punchline clip you made this punch line
  • 1:05:51
    up on punchline yeah it's really the the
  • 1:05:54
    core of that is leave no person behind
  • 1:05:57
    we cannot solution we can it's not a
  • 1:06:00
    military term Maurice leave no blue
  • 1:06:05
    soldier behind leave no student behind
  • 1:06:07
    leave no somebody behind no child yeah
  • 1:06:10
    that she's derivative does she I give
  • 1:06:12
    her credit for this by the way she's
  • 1:06:13
    they've been doing a very good job of
  • 1:06:16
    stealing other people's ideas including
  • 1:06:18
    green new deal as you
  • 1:06:20
    not earlier in this indecision but it's
  • 1:06:22
    not just stealing I mean she took it oh
  • 1:06:24
    yeah and ran with it and everyone who
  • 1:06:26
    was a part of it seven years ago I was
  • 1:06:27
    like whoa I'm Dan Jones let me power of
  • 1:06:31
    your green New Deal yeah it's really the
  • 1:06:35
    the core of that is leave no person
  • 1:06:38
    behind we cannot have a solution we
  • 1:06:40
    cannot move forward into our future
  • 1:06:42
    unless every single American is
  • 1:06:46
    considered part of that and whenever we
  • 1:06:49
    see oversights you know oftentimes when
  • 1:06:51
    we get to the negotiating table in laws
  • 1:06:53
    and in policymaking there's this idea
  • 1:06:56
    that oh we can leave the poorest of the
  • 1:06:59
    poor behind or we don't have to worry
  • 1:07:01
    about this tiny sliver of the population
  • 1:07:03
    because they're just a tiny sliver of
  • 1:07:05
    the population and what that eventually
  • 1:07:08
    does is that it creates a crack and that
  • 1:07:12
    crack really if you think of there being
  • 1:07:15
    like a crack in the dam it's usually
  • 1:07:17
    where things always break down and when
  • 1:07:21
    we close you see the right way with
  • 1:07:24
    integrity that honors everybody from the
  • 1:07:27
    most vulnerable to the most powerful
  • 1:07:30
    when we we acknowledge and see every
  • 1:07:33
    person in this country which is really
  • 1:07:35
    what it's about is that we have chosen
  • 1:07:36
    not to see people in this country we
  • 1:07:40
    have chosen not to see people in this
  • 1:07:41
    country until the majority of us have
  • 1:07:43
    become unseen economically working
  • 1:07:47
    people are not seen in the halls of
  • 1:07:49
    Congress working people are not seen in
  • 1:07:51
    policymaking until we realize that the
  • 1:07:54
    majority of Americans are working or
  • 1:07:56
    working poor this is persuasion and I
  • 1:07:59
    think it's good persuasion I think she's
  • 1:08:01
    really said she said nothing about what
  • 1:08:03
    she's doing nothing at all she just
  • 1:08:06
    spoke in identity politics to the entire
  • 1:08:08
    world of identity politics groups and I
  • 1:08:11
    think it's going to be very effective
  • 1:08:12
    here's your punch line clip the good
  • 1:08:15
    news is that we're not starting from
  • 1:08:16
    scratch there are so many people like
  • 1:08:18
    van like senator senator Merkley who who
  • 1:08:23
    had established the Select Committee
  • 1:08:24
    when he was in the House a previous
  • 1:08:26
    select committee there's a lot of
  • 1:08:29
    legislation that has been drafted to
  • 1:08:31
    already start addressing some of these
  • 1:08:32
    smaller issues
  • 1:08:34
    just transitions in coal whether it's
  • 1:08:37
    you know whether it's it's our energy
  • 1:08:40
    infrastructure whether it's battery when
  • 1:08:42
    we're looking at battery grids and so on
  • 1:08:44
    there's a lot of work that has already
  • 1:08:46
    been done but it needs to be
  • 1:08:48
    consolidated and brought under the tent
  • 1:08:51
    of a green new deal and when we try to
  • 1:08:54
    solve this issue piecemeal we are not
  • 1:08:56
    going to get it solved in time so what
  • 1:08:59
    you saying is everything that deals with
  • 1:09:02
    the economy has to be in my select
  • 1:09:04
    committee you can't deal with it outside
  • 1:09:06
    of it
  • 1:09:06
    you got you got battery grids whatever
  • 1:09:08
    that is that's in my gris-gris grids
  • 1:09:11
    that's why we are asking for this really
  • 1:09:14
    great ambitious singular plan and that
  • 1:09:18
    is why you know I believe that the
  • 1:09:20
    progressive movement is the only
  • 1:09:21
    movement that has answers right now
  • 1:09:23
    we're the only ones that are drawing
  • 1:09:25
    from the lessons of history from
  • 1:09:27
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt from some of
  • 1:09:29
    the most ambitious projects that we have
  • 1:09:32
    pursued in in American history and that
  • 1:09:36
    truly again is the scale that it's going
  • 1:09:37
    to take so you know I think that there's
  • 1:09:40
    so much work that has been done and
  • 1:09:41
    there's some outlying questions
  • 1:09:43
    especially when it comes to investment
  • 1:09:45
    in technology here we go when we as a
  • 1:09:48
    public choose to invest in private we
  • 1:09:51
    when we as a public choose to invest in
  • 1:09:53
    new technologies we deserve a return on
  • 1:09:55
    that investment and for far too long we
  • 1:09:58
    gave money to Tesla we gave money to a
  • 1:10:00
    ton of people and we got no return
  • 1:10:03
    losses our investment that the public
  • 1:10:06
    made in creating technologies and it's
  • 1:10:08
    about time that we get our do because
  • 1:10:11
    it's the public that funded and financed
  • 1:10:13
    a lot of innovative technologies and
  • 1:10:15
    that's another you know so fu Elon with
  • 1:10:20
    your no return on investment thank you
  • 1:10:22
    AOC for saying that that's a fantastic
  • 1:10:25
    example by the way financed by companies
  • 1:10:28
    like kleiner perkins not that they
  • 1:10:30
    pulled money out of their pocket they
  • 1:10:31
    went to Washington they got the money
  • 1:10:33
    was it five hundred million dollars just
  • 1:10:36
    for Fisker alone forget about all the
  • 1:10:38
    money that Elon Musk's has has taken and
  • 1:10:43
    then we continue to subsidize the well
  • 1:10:45
    remember that the
  • 1:10:47
    only reason that we're getting raped and
  • 1:10:48
    this money is being taken from the
  • 1:10:50
    public which means you're taxpayers and
  • 1:10:53
    and 500 million being sent off to a
  • 1:10:55
    Fisker that went out of business the
  • 1:10:57
    first linndrum or any of these other
  • 1:10:59
    companies it's because of people like
  • 1:11:02
    her and this promotion of this global
  • 1:11:04
    warming nonsense at this level exactly
  • 1:11:08
    so it's like a vicious cycle and like
  • 1:11:11
    you create the phony problem and then
  • 1:11:14
    you solve it with you know then you soak
  • 1:11:16
    people for money and then you give the
  • 1:11:17
    money away and the money goes to all
  • 1:11:19
    these it goes into somebody's pocket
  • 1:11:21
    it's not that it's not you know that is
  • 1:11:24
    actually being used for anything
  • 1:11:25
    productive is not being it's not
  • 1:11:28
    beneficial to anyone it is to Elon the
  • 1:11:30
    whole thing is a giant scam yes but our
  • 1:11:34
    job is to help the Millennials who are
  • 1:11:37
    woke there aren't that many that we have
