    okay now we'll go on March Adam curry
  • 0:09
    this is no agenda just witness the
  • 0:25
    12-bar Coastal late by an hour going by
  • 0:28
    I'm John Seymour I don't typically do
  • 0:34
    New Year's resolutions but I think we
  • 0:37
    should resolve to stop with the Zephyr
  • 0:39
    stuff in 2019 it's not a weak issue oh
  • 0:43
    I'm sorry I was just trying to make it
  • 0:47
    the show we just trying to make it
  • 0:48
    magnanimous a show that's a show issue
  • 0:52
    try to trick me
  • 0:54
    I just have this vision of you sitting
  • 0:57
    there in your office on the hill
  • 0:59
    watching the trains go by it goes one
  • 1:02
    now marking it down your little notebook
  • 1:04
    I definitely the little no calling
  • 1:07
    calling in comforters everyone calling
  • 1:11
    in complaints it was late you know I
  • 1:14
    used to call in complaints because
  • 1:16
    there's some clowns some years back
  • 1:18
    maybe we're talking some years back who
  • 1:21
    would love coming through with their
  • 1:22
    freight trains honking the horn as loud
  • 1:26
    as they can but there's no crossings
  • 1:28
    there's nothing honking and honking at
  • 1:30
    3:00 in the morning thinking that's
  • 1:32
    hilarious
  • 1:33
    classic doing the same thing if I was
  • 1:36
    yeah
  • 1:37
    Austin has that too we have the the
  • 1:39
    trains coming through and they always
  • 1:41
    are blowing their horn yeah on purpose
  • 1:44
    of course especially at 3:00 in the
  • 1:46
    morning there's no reason for it today
  • 1:48
    is an important day
  • 1:49
    December 23rd 2018 not that you'd know
  • 1:53
    it but there's an important election
  • 1:56
    taking place today which kind of fits in
  • 1:58
    with my beat
  • 2:01
    we'll then is your be to discuss I'm
  • 2:04
    going to discuss it with a quick three
  • 2:06
    clip a three parter clip series because
  • 2:09
    it makes nothing but since what have I
  • 2:11
    been tracking I've been tracking Ebola
  • 2:13
    in the Democratic Republic of Congo and
  • 2:17
    typically when there's Ebola the whole
  • 2:20
    idea is to send in some military troops
  • 2:23
    to keep everything peaceful and calm
  • 2:25
    which may have a secondary reason we
  • 2:28
    learned recently that the actual area of
  • 2:31
    North was it the kuba Kuniko v qu you
  • 2:35
    know already or there was a particular
  • 2:37
    area of the Democratic Republic of Congo
  • 2:41
    is where pretty much all your cell phone
  • 2:43
    materials comes from there's diamonds
  • 2:45
    there's gold there's also a lot of oil
  • 2:48
    and there's an election that's been
  • 2:50
    gearing up and whenever there's
  • 2:51
    elections we always want to be involved
  • 2:52
    and I have a feeling that maybe the
  • 2:54
    Ebola stories is to just get us ready in
  • 2:57
    case we have to jump in and do something
  • 2:59
    because there's a big problem with these
  • 3:00
    elections again slated for today in the
  • 3:03
    DRC this is the infamous voting machine
  • 3:05
    a touch screen on which voters will
  • 3:08
    select their candidate for the election
  • 3:10
    before a ballot is printed and put into
  • 3:13
    a ballot box to be counted manually the
  • 3:17
    president of the Electoral Commission
  • 3:18
    claims that this machine will make
  • 3:20
    voting easier for the population and at
  • 3:23
    the same time guarantee total
  • 3:25
    transparency we want the winner to win
  • 3:31
    the best of them almost succeed the
  • 3:34
    machine is to annihilate all attempts at
  • 3:36
    cheating which we unfortunately
  • 3:38
    witnessed in the 2011 in 2006 elections
  • 3:41
    this is what the Machine is here to fix
  • 3:44
    at the Electoral Commission headquarters
  • 3:46
    as in several places in Kinshasa voting
  • 3:50
    machines are displayed so that anybody
  • 3:53
    can come and experiment with the new
  • 3:55
    technology fast even men
  • 3:58
    now that I've tried it it looks very
  • 4:00
    easy to me but the question is now will
  • 4:02
    the uneducated people like our mothers
  • 4:04
    in the villages know how to use the
  • 4:06
    machines with the pole fast approaching
  • 4:10
    some opposition leaders are still very
  • 4:12
    unhappy about the use of the machines
  • 4:14
    which they call cheating machines
  • 4:17
    machine commanded of what the voting
  • 4:20
    machines are not a reliable way to vote
  • 4:22
    Congolese people are not used to it
  • 4:25
    company either a black clan shows this
  • 4:31
    way of voting law so they can cheat
  • 4:35
    there seems to be some issue with these
  • 4:38
    new voting machines that have been
  • 4:41
    brought in manufactured by miru systems
  • 4:44
    a fine South Korean firm which believes
  • 4:48
    me to believe there might be some
  • 4:50
    Chinese stuff in there but also if you
  • 4:52
    have an Ebola infested country and area
  • 4:56
    why are you gonna have touch screens
  • 4:58
    that seems like exactly the opposite of
  • 5:00
    what you'd want to do and nikki Haley at
  • 5:05
    the UN had her own issues we are deeply
  • 5:07
    concerned by the Election Commission's
  • 5:09
    insistence on using an electronic voting
  • 5:12
    system that has never been used in the
  • 5:14
    DRC our understanding is that the
  • 5:17
    Commission has never even tested this
  • 5:19
    electronic voting system in the DRC but
  • 5:22
    plans to deploy this technology for the
  • 5:24
    first time on Election Day it should go
  • 5:28
    without saying that employing an
  • 5:30
    unfamiliar technology for the first time
  • 5:33
    during a crucial election is an enormous
  • 5:36
    risk it has the potential to seriously
  • 5:40
    undermine the credibility of elections
  • 5:42
    that so many have worked hard to see
  • 5:45
    that happen these elections must be held
  • 5:48
    by paper ballots so there is no question
  • 5:50
    by the Congolese people about the
  • 5:52
    results the u.s. has no appetite to
  • 5:55
    support an electronic voting system
  • 5:58
    except here of course you're right it
  • 6:06
    isn't ice though if it was made by
  • 6:09
    Diebold maybe
  • 6:11
    she would have been okay with it but
  • 6:12
    perhaps the fact that it comes from
  • 6:13
    South Korea and could have some Chinese
  • 6:15
    technology in there who of course would
  • 6:18
    like to have some control over the
  • 6:20
    country seeing as they're the ones in
  • 6:21
    there getting all the minerals so what
  • 6:24
    do you do well you do this of course the
  • 6:26
    first pictures of a burning Election
  • 6:28
    Commission warehouse in Kinshasa the
  • 6:30
    capital of the Democratic Republic of
  • 6:32
    Congo inside were voting materials
  • 6:35
    destined for centers throughout the city
  • 6:38
    ahead of presidential elections on
  • 6:40
    December 23rd it started at about two
  • 6:45
    o'clock in the morning local time an
  • 6:46
    estimated 7,000 voting machines were
  • 6:50
    destroyed
  • 6:56
    I can't take it much further than this I
  • 6:59
    don't know who's behind it but certainly
  • 7:01
    we're not happy with the with the voting
  • 7:04
    machines and that may have something to
  • 7:06
    do with the outcome and who ultimately
  • 7:08
    is in control I think we have no control
  • 7:11
    over this one we're just we're just
  • 7:13
    blowing in the wind well you don't know
  • 7:16
    that well that's that's why I always say
  • 7:18
    the Ebola may be there so if the wrong
  • 7:20
    person gets elected which could happen
  • 7:23
    then we concede it will happen then we
  • 7:26
    can fit our standards yes then we can
  • 7:28
    send in some troops to protect everyone
  • 7:30
    from Ebola so it could be a distraction
  • 7:33
    so because there's nothing in the news
  • 7:35
    that I've see I mean I had to go to
  • 7:37
    al-jazeera
  • 7:38
    where else did I mean no US outlets of
  • 7:42
    any significance of reporting on even on
  • 7:45
    the election really and certainly not
  • 7:47
    definitely can't have nikki Haley saying
  • 7:50
    that voting machines are no good for us
  • 7:57
    but not for you in the DRC shut up and
  • 8:00
    give me some minerals for my cell phone
  • 8:02
    yes well we obviously will keep trying
  • 8:06
    this is not gonna it sounds to me that
  • 8:09
    this border line you know mess it is a
  • 8:12
    mess
  • 8:12
    it isn't absolutely it's an actual mess
  • 8:16
    good I'm glad you caught that yeah so
  • 8:18
    that's so the election is today so who
  • 8:20
    knows maybe Ebola will step up today
  • 8:21
    depending on the outcome I don't think
  • 8:23
    we all yeah I don't think we have an
  • 8:25
    outcome just yet I'll keep an eye on it
  • 8:30
    why but I've considered one of my beats
  • 8:32
    to be the Supreme Court Justice picks
  • 8:35
    ooh yes you mean because you're already
  • 8:38
    counting on Ruth Bader Ginsburg no
  • 8:41
    longer serving as a justice
  • 8:44
    my mother had cancer and she lived to 90
  • 8:46
    and she probably had cancer for I don't
  • 8:49
    know a long time like maybe I think well
  • 8:52
    my mother had lung cancer just some
  • 8:56
    something oh god she was so skinny that
  • 8:58
    the cancer couldn't thrive oh really
  • 9:01
    yeah huh and that's what kept her going
  • 9:06
    that's nothing like a cabbage diet
  • 9:08
    anyway the Ruth Gator got Ruth cater
  • 9:14
    Bader Ginsburg it seems to have that
  • 9:17
    same characteristics she's really thin
  • 9:20
    if she had a blood transfusion or
  • 9:21
    something she'd be she'd be a goner but
  • 9:25
    he's you know still she's this is like
  • 9:28
    she's had lots of different cancers
  • 9:29
    she's like not just someone whose head
  • 9:31
    has some lingering cancer so I figure
  • 9:34
    she's got a year
  • 9:36
    it was she just being old and tired how
  • 9:39
    about that I mean I you may want to
  • 9:41
    serve your country but she's believed 85
  • 9:44
    yeah she said you know da diehard
  • 9:46
    liberal at before she dies cuz
  • 9:53
    eventually we all do there's a lot of
  • 9:55
    good to be said about her I mean she she
  • 9:58
    did do a lot for women she's very very
  • 10:01
    interesting pre-owned she's an important
  • 10:03
    part of the American experience let me
  • 10:05
    say it before she's gone so you know to
  • 10:08
    say you know it's easy to say she falls
  • 10:10
    asleep she's no good but she has quite a
  • 10:12
    history that no I'm saying I'm saying it
  • 10:14
    in general not about you in general
  • 10:16
    because I hear a lot of this I read a
  • 10:18
    lot of give the woman a little bit of
  • 10:21
    respect as she leaves
  • 10:24
    meanwhile we've got to pick somebody I
  • 10:26
    do have an essay coming up I've decided
  • 10:28
    from non now on out I'm not putting in
  • 10:30
    the newsletter I'm sending them out
  • 10:31
    separately mm-hmm
  • 10:33
    this will be the handicapping the picks
  • 10:36
    I give you a little heads up I do not
  • 10:39
    think a me koni koni Barrett is going to
  • 10:42
    win anything or get picked really I
  • 10:46
    think that they're gonna probably put a
  • 10:48
    pickle pick a puka pack a pick a woman
  • 10:50
    yeah and I believe it will be her
  • 10:54
    competition which is Joan Larson uh-huh
  • 10:58
    now John Larson and the cuckoomy Barry
  • 11:01
    is the odds on absolute if you want to
  • 11:04
    have checkboxes she is the smartest she
  • 11:07
    is that prettiest she's the youngest
  • 11:11
    hold on Joan Larson I don't I've never
  • 11:14
    been her don't know Amy call me Barry
  • 11:16
    this is smartest already the youngest
  • 11:19
    gummy bear it's a few years older I'm
  • 11:22
    not sorry Larson's a few years older
  • 11:23
    Comey Barrett is the youngest the
  • 11:26
    problem with call me Barrett I believe
  • 11:28
    is in her presentation we talked about
  • 11:30
    you know if on paper I'm reminded of our
  • 11:33
    vice president hopeful under the John
  • 11:36
    McCain administration who I had picked
  • 11:38
    to be picked our friend from Alaska yes
  • 11:43
    Sarah Palin she
  • 11:46
    I picked her not ever hearing her yes
  • 11:50
    yes no and we and we do need to be very
  • 11:55
    specific here the American public
  • 11:58
    chooses their elected leaders like we
  • 12:01
    choose our soap so it needs to be
  • 12:04
    appealing the message needs to be
  • 12:06
    repeated clearly and often you will be
  • 12:08
    much whiter after you use me now Tomi
  • 12:12
    Kony Barrett has the advantages of being
  • 12:17
    the smartest she's got great education
  • 12:19
    got great Kretsch has seven children to
  • 12:21
    him she's adopted two kids from Haiti
  • 12:23
    Haiti refugee she's a she's a saint
  • 12:28
    what's wrong with her then John there's
  • 12:30
    got to be something wrong her voice ah
  • 12:34
    her voice she sounds like she's on
  • 12:37
    helium I have a clip I want you to play
  • 12:41
    that I have to tell everybody cuz they
  • 12:42
    know that we have doctored our clips of
  • 12:44
    Casey for a cheap laugh not to change
  • 12:48
    the meaning or anything
  • 12:49
    there is no doctoring going on with this
  • 12:51
    clip and I think just because she
  • 12:54
    doesn't and she's a professor but she
  • 12:59
    her voice is a bit off-putting when is
  • 13:03
    it proper for a judge to put their
  • 13:05
    religious views above applying the law
  • 13:07
    Thank You chairman Grassley let me start
  • 13:10
    with your very last question and say
  • 13:12
    never it's never appropriate for a judge
  • 13:14
    to impose that judges personal
  • 13:18
    convictions whether they derive from
  • 13:19
    faith or anywhere else on the law this
  • 13:22
    article that I wrote as a law student
  • 13:24
    has gotten a lot of attention since my
  • 13:26
    nomination so I'd like the opportunity
  • 13:28
    to put it in context I brought that Law
  • 13:31
    Review article when I was a third-year
  • 13:32
    law student with one of my professors 20
  • 13:35
    years ago it was a project that he had
  • 13:37
    under way and he invited me to work on
  • 13:40
    it with him and I was complimented that
  • 13:42
    as a student he thought I was up to the
  • 13:44
    task of being more than a research
  • 13:46
    assistant but I was very much the junior
  • 13:48
    partner in our collaboration and that
  • 13:51
    was appropriate given our relative
  • 13:52
    statures
  • 13:54
    would I or could I say that sitting here
  • 13:57
    today that that article and it's every
  • 14:00
    particular reflects how I think about
  • 14:03
    these questions today with as you say
  • 14:05
    the benefit of twenty years of
  • 14:07
    experience and also the ability to speak
  • 14:09
    solely and my own voice no it would not
  • 14:13
    doesn't seem I mean I get what you're
  • 14:16
    going for but the competition has got to
  • 14:18
    be a lot better for this to be a total
  • 14:20
    game you know a a non-starter Larson I
  • 14:24
    think has the creds to be able to pull
  • 14:26
    this off she's got a little more
  • 14:28
    experience on the bench she's got more
  • 14:30
    experience as a litigator she's got more
  • 14:32
    experience in general but again not
  • 14:35
    quite the voice you want for someone who
  • 14:39
    I'm gonna be picky about this but I know
  • 14:41
    you know these things do matter I also
  • 14:44
    did there was a fear that Amy call Kony
  • 14:48
    Barrett
  • 14:49
    it has not enough judicial experience
  • 14:52
    he's only been on the bench for it since
  • 14:53
    2017 along with Joan but Joan was a was
  • 14:57
    a chief justice mm-hmm before she got on
  • 15:00
    the bench at one of the states I think
  • 15:02
    Michigan and it's just she was on the
  • 15:04
    Supreme Court the problem they believe
  • 15:08
    is that Barrett they don't know if she's
  • 15:12
    gonna become another David Souter who
  • 15:14
    was a big you know a big conservative
  • 15:17
    pick by one of the one of the
  • 15:19
    conservative presidents and turned out
  • 15:21
    to be this massive liberal where it
  • 15:24
    could be the same way she could become a
  • 15:26
    Matt you could just see it in her way
  • 15:29
    she thinks that she could become a real
  • 15:31
    killer liberal that would be a problem
  • 15:34
    so they they're not picking her look I'm
  • 15:36
    just telling everybody I look I love
  • 15:37
    your mind-reading I'm not saying that's
  • 15:39
    wrong
  • 15:40
    Joan Larson as is I think a better
  • 15:44
    choice I'm not the voice I'd want to
  • 15:46
    hear but at least she can I can I quick
  • 15:51
    quick feedback just because I had not
  • 15:53
    even heard this name prior to this
  • 15:55
    program yeah if we were to cast a female
  • 15:58
    justice she's the one she is Larson is
  • 16:03
    straight out of central casting okay
  • 16:05
    let's stop there I'm it i will make a
  • 16:07
    commentary about this because Adam and I
  • 16:09
    both have thoughts about appearance from
  • 16:14
    the executive producer yes
  • 16:16
    not from you know Diaz is prettier and
  • 16:19
    Amy is incredibly telegenic Joan is
  • 16:24
    beautiful in a photograph but she is not
  • 16:27
    nearly as telegenic she's actually not
  • 16:30
    telegenic mm-hmm so there's a little
  • 16:33
    difference there but it's beside the
  • 16:34
    point there Supreme Court justice
  • 16:36
    there's nothing gonna be there never on
  • 16:37
    camera so what difference does it make
  • 16:39
    so let's listen to her answers but not
  • 16:42
    give to those branches as I said in the
  • 16:45
    Supreme Court hearing judges must be
  • 16:47
    equally dependent independent of the
  • 16:49
    president who nominates them and the
  • 16:52
    senators who confirmed them
  • 16:54
    so justice arson I think your voice is
  • 16:57
    really quite masculine please describe
  • 17:00
    what judicial independence means to you
  • 17:03
    and tell us whether you have any trouble
  • 17:05
    ruling against the president who
  • 17:07
    appointed you thank you for the question
  • 17:10
    chairman Grassley I would have
  • 17:12
    absolutely no trouble ruling against the
  • 17:15
    president who appointed me or any
  • 17:19
    successor president as well
  • 17:21
    judicial independence means one thing
  • 17:23
    one very simple thing and that is
  • 17:25
    putting the law above everything else
  • 17:27
    the statutes passed by this body and the
  • 17:30
    Constitution of the United States so I
  • 17:32
    would have absolutely no trouble indeed
  • 17:34
    that would be my duty yeah we've often
  • 17:37
    heard these words especially since
  • 17:41
    January quote-unquote now more than ever
  • 17:44
    we need judges who will be independent
  • 17:48
    of the president who nominated them so
  • 17:50
    I'd like to ask about your nomination
  • 17:52
    and your independence a lot much now was
  • 17:56
    this a confirmation hearing for a for
  • 17:58
    this for the circuit court circuits yeah
  • 18:01
    yeah the circuit also a Barrett got less
  • 18:09
    votes in the Senate as a confirmation
  • 18:11
    than Larson did mm-hmm and she's a stay
  • 18:15
    hater because she's a staunch Catholic
  • 18:17
    the other problem is I'm gonna bring
  • 18:19
    this this is the part that that nobody
  • 18:22
    will discuss because it's like you can't
  • 18:23
    discuss it
  • 18:25
    to Supreme Court has too many Catholics
  • 18:28
    on it hmm it's almost all Catholics and
  • 18:32
    and a couple of Jews that's it
  • 18:36
    Amy called me koni Barrett is the
  • 18:39
    extreme Catholic she's like I've oh I
  • 18:41
    would say she's a charismatic Catholic
  • 18:44
    in the old sense this woman larson I
  • 18:47
    spent days trying to find out what
  • 18:51
    religion or what religious affiliation
  • 18:53
    she has there is none hmm she's either
  • 18:57
    an atheist and agnostic a Wicca or who
  • 19:03
    knows what yeah that's what she looks
  • 19:07
    like
  • 19:07
    nailed it now and believe me I did put a
  • 19:12
    little more effort than I should have
  • 19:14
    because I was one point I got I said
  • 19:16
    wait a minute I've got to figure this
  • 19:17
    out and I went and found all kinds of
  • 19:20
    documentation for what the religious
  • 19:22
    affiliations are of all these different
  • 19:24
    people and she's not defined of I've
  • 19:29
    even written to people who wrote some
  • 19:30
    biographies about her and nobody ever
  • 19:32
    wrote me back thank you so that's an
  • 19:37
    issue cuz it may turn out that she's you
  • 19:40
    know I don't believe in God or she's
  • 19:41
    that hey this is what I did cause if she
  • 19:44
    has a husband this is the problem she's
  • 19:45
    got some drawbacks she's got a husband
  • 19:48
    who's a professor of law this guy has
  • 19:50
    got to go to the black scraggly goatee
  • 19:54
    not a nice trim go to get scraggly
  • 19:56
    goatee a big ponytail no no yeah
  • 20:01
    ponytail and he wears a bowtie all the
  • 20:05
    time what does he do he's a professor of
  • 20:07
    law and he teaches teaches law uh-huh
  • 20:10
    and he's got the bowtie in the ponytail
  • 20:13
    and the spinning you know the holy Mises
  • 20:16
    it's like this guy is and they did they
  • 20:19
    do not share names she's so she's of the
  • 20:21
    of the which is a giveaway of some sort
  • 20:25
    yet I'm not taking my husband's name I
  • 20:26
    probably won't be married to him that
  • 20:28
    long why should I or something like that
  • 20:31
    Amy Kony Barrett is married to Bob
  • 20:35
    Barrett and Kony is her old less old
  • 20:38
    name uh-huh so there's that so then we
  • 20:42
    have this a problem and there's a third
  • 20:44
    party which I don't have in handy I've
  • 20:46
    been doing some research on him who's
  • 20:48
    another a possible
  • 20:49
    guy but I think they're gonna have to
  • 20:51
    put a woman in because of Ginsburg being
  • 20:52
    a woman so it's gonna be what it's gotta
  • 20:55
    be one of these two there's no other
  • 20:56
    real challengers these are the two best
  • 21:01
    okay well just based on what I'm seeing
  • 21:07
    I think I had not heard of John Larson
  • 21:09
    even being in in the race for this I
  • 21:11
    hadn't even honestly considered
  • 21:14
    talking about a replacement for Ginsberg
  • 21:17
    just yet yeah you gotta be ahead of the
  • 21:19
    game but yeah but Larson you know you
  • 21:22
    could put her on Law & Order right now
  • 21:24
    boom in that done she looks the part
  • 21:28
    I think that's that'll do it um and then
  • 21:33
    Lucy okay well while we're on that then
  • 21:37
    we saw general mattis resign yes yes
  • 21:42
    about that yeah you want to just talk
  • 21:45
    about his replacement real quick do you
  • 21:48
    have any any thoughts I do I have have
  • 21:51
    the military's thoughts yeah stars the
  • 21:55
    stripes in the military times and looked
  • 21:57
    at what they thought yeah that I think
  • 21:59
    the guy the best guy would be the guy
  • 22:01
    who's the deputy the guy who was the
  • 22:03
    executive from Boeing right who's the
  • 22:06
    deputy that's the guy you want you want
  • 22:09
    that kind of guy cuz he keeps the whole
  • 22:10
    thing moving and you know as you can see
  • 22:13
    well maybe we should take a step back
  • 22:15
    before we get to that what happened the
  • 22:17
    minute Trump said
  • 22:19
    all right pulling out of Syria pulling
  • 22:22
    out of Afghanistan everybody in
  • 22:24
    Washington DC just lost their crap
  • 22:28
    including fragments maybe even
  • 22:30
    especially Fox News because I know my
  • 22:32
    god we're gonna do this is this is the
  • 22:34
    machine you can't remove them shit does
  • 22:36
    not works it'll move the machine
  • 22:40
    and I have a couple funny clips about it
  • 22:42
    do you want to start with something they
  • 22:43
    have a bunch of clips I got Panetta
  • 22:46
    bitching let's do some bitching first I
  • 22:49
    start with bitch number one yeah this is
  • 22:54
    this is actually Fox this is I think Fox
  • 22:57
    and Friends and Sarah Sanders of course
  • 23:00
    calls him the president I'm sorry I was
  • 23:04
    just gonna say one thing that was in a
  • 23:07
    tweet somebody pointed this on I thought
  • 23:08
    was Grace's drop has done nothing to
  • 23:11
    change the Republican Party but he's
  • 23:13
    done everything to change the Democrat
  • 23:15
    Party they are now all war mongers yeah
  • 23:20
    okay then I'll flip him around
  • 23:22
    yes war monger so we'll start with
  • 23:23
    Nicole Wallace from MSNBC here's what
  • 23:28
    she had to say I mean it is he someone
  • 23:30
    is is depending I mean you're basically
  • 23:31
    describing a US military that does not
  • 23:34
    listen to the commander-in-chief is that
  • 23:36
    what's going on well no I don't think
  • 23:38
    that they don't listen to them I think
  • 23:40
    that they listen to their credit I'm
  • 23:46
    cheered if you're telling me that the
  • 23:47
    military doesn't listen to him senior
  • 23:50
    Pentagon officials who were alarmed by
  • 23:52
    the news who had the rug pull who were
  • 23:56
    communicated as recently as yesterday
  • 23:58
    that our commitment was solid
  • 24:01
    the president seems to have his foreign
  • 24:03
    policy run through Moscow or Turkey or
  • 24:06
    other countries yeah so she is just
  • 24:08
    cheered she's cheered I don't know if
  • 24:10
    you can be cheered but she's cheered if
  • 24:12
    the military no longer listens to the
  • 24:14
    commander in chief that's she's cheered
  • 24:16
    by that so I guess she likes that and
  • 24:18
    then we have the Fox people just taking
  • 24:21
    it many steps further the president has
  • 24:23
    been talking about this since the
  • 24:24
    campaign he brought it up again eight
  • 24:26
    months ago six months ago he's wanted to
  • 24:28
    bring our troops home look our goal and
  • 24:30
    the president's purpose of continuing to
  • 24:33
    be in Syria what's to defeat Isis we've
  • 24:35
    defeated the territorial Caliphate
  • 24:37
    ninety nine percent of Isis has been
  • 24:39
    wiped out of Syria the president doesn't
  • 24:42
    want to be in the middle of another
  • 24:44
    civil war in the Middle East and put
  • 24:46
    American lives on the line for that
  • 24:48
    purpose he wants to bring the men and
  • 24:49
    women
  • 24:50
    of our armed forces home and that's what
  • 24:52
    he judged to do and that's exactly what
  • 24:54
    he's doing
  • 24:54
    Sarah he's giving Russia a big win
  • 24:57
    Vladimir Putin praised him he also is
  • 24:59
    doing exactly what he criticized
  • 25:01
    President Obama for doing he said
  • 25:02
    President Obama is the founder of Isis
  • 25:04
    he just rebounded Isis because 30,000
  • 25:08
    men there and their striking Theory
  • 25:11
    founded Isis this is fantastic
  • 25:15
    every one going once war apparently in
  • 25:17
    them in the mainstream media everybody
  • 25:19
    all sides war war war war war just want
  • 25:23
    war I don't care just we need to be
  • 25:24
    fighting somewhere is there's no good
  • 25:27
    and if you go ahead it's just ridiculous
  • 25:30
    and just for historical context when
  • 25:34
    maddis was brought in to manage the
  • 25:40
    Afghanistan region under no that was
  • 25:44
    under Bush Rumsfeld was the Secretary of
  • 25:49
    Defense when he came in he was hated
  • 25:51
    hated by the left because mainly because
  • 25:55
    this is a news clip from al-jazeera just
  • 25:57
    play a little bit from this must have
  • 26:00
    been around that a little bit later than
  • 26:02
    to thought maybe 2006 or something this
  • 26:04
    is the man who will take over one of the
  • 26:06
    u.s. military's most challenging jobs
  • 26:08
    General James Madison this is what he's
  • 26:11
    best known for fun to fight I like to
  • 26:25
    shoot him oh yeah I like that getting to
  • 26:28
    brawl and shoot those guys I don't get
  • 26:29
    it's like a they they miss handle women
  • 26:33
    so that's good to go kill him it was not
  • 26:35
    really what anyone wanted to hear at the
  • 26:37
    time he's not on the on the left and no
  • 26:42
    one really but now now now we forget all
  • 26:46
    that we're very good at it we forget all
  • 26:48
    about the a-hole who want to just go
  • 26:50
    blow people up and and now huh I also
  • 26:53
    heard that this is a story that I heard
  • 26:55
    is that mattis had consultants in who
  • 27:00
    were saying you know you could run for
  • 27:02
    president in 2020
  • 27:03
    I'm not kidding and so part of the issue
  • 27:07
    was they allotted to reversed our
  • 27:09
    generals who all kind of believe that
  • 27:11
    maybe cuz I did it right well apparently
  • 27:15
    he had the consultants in the president
  • 27:18
    got wind of it he's like you know you
  • 27:20
    wonder one if you want to run that's
  • 27:21
    cool but I can't have you in for two
  • 27:23
    years while you're ultimately gonna run
  • 27:24
    against me so you gotta go that's that's
  • 27:27
    the story I heard from our military
  • 27:29
    intelligence that actually makes sense
  • 27:32
    but I think it's a combination of things
  • 27:34
    perfect timing of course you know with
  • 27:36
    the pullout in Syria perfect timing
  • 27:38
    well one of course you wanted to stay in
  • 27:40
    Syria forever
  • 27:42
    there's also the issue with the chief of
  • 27:45
    staff he didn't like mark Maile the guy
  • 27:49
    that we like headed that the army taking
  • 27:52
    over a chief of staff of the Joint
  • 27:54
    Chiefs he wanted David Goldfine who's
  • 27:57
    the Air Force guy and I would challenge
  • 27:59
    anybody in the military and civilians
  • 28:02
    whatever taped go on the Wikipedia and
  • 28:04
    look up Maile and look up Goldfine and
  • 28:06
    put their bio side-by-side and ask
  • 28:09
    yourself why anybody would want Goldfine
  • 28:15
    so there was that there was that issue
  • 28:17
    there was the Miley issue and there's a
  • 28:19
    third issue I'm trying to think what it
  • 28:20
    was that he had a run-in with I mean
  • 28:23
    mattis was in total disagreement I'll
  • 28:26
    come up with it before we're done with
  • 28:27
    our Clips but it wasn't a good match to
  • 28:32
    begin with but let's play the kind of
  • 28:34
    the background Iran maddest quits leaves
  • 28:36
    snarky note PBS resignation letter was
  • 28:39
    noteworthy for its absence of any praise
  • 28:42
    for president Trump instead he cited his
  • 28:45
    differences with the commander in chief
  • 28:47
    writing you have the right to have a
  • 28:49
    secretary whose views are better aligned
  • 28:51
    with yours we are going to a point mad
  • 28:58
    dog matters as our Secretary of Defense
  • 29:05
    the seeds of discord were present when
  • 29:08
    mr. Trump announced in 2016 that the
  • 29:10
    retired four-star Marine general would
  • 29:12
    run the Pentagon mattis has made it
  • 29:15
    known that he hates the nickname mad dog
  • 29:17
    after that he repeatedly disagreed
  • 29:20
    publicly with the president by
  • 29:21
    supporting NATO and other alliances
  • 29:24
    criticizing worsen interference in US
  • 29:26
    elections and opposing the president's
  • 29:29
    withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal
  • 29:31
    and transgender military ban then came
  • 29:34
    mr. Trump's sudden decision this week to
  • 29:36
    withdraw US troops from Syria a move
  • 29:39
    mattis strongly disagreed with at the
  • 29:43
    White House last night press secretary
  • 29:45
    Sarah Sanders acknowledged the rift he
  • 29:48
    and the president have a good
  • 29:49
    relationship but sometimes they disagree
  • 29:52
    the president always listens to the
  • 29:55
    members of his national security team
  • 29:56
    but at the end of the day it's the
  • 29:58
    president's decision to make maddis
  • 30:01
    plans to leave the Pentagon at the end
  • 30:03
    of February the other issue I was
  • 30:07
    thinking about besides the mark Miley
  • 30:11
    and all these other disagreements is the
  • 30:13
    Pentagon budget failed they tried me the
  • 30:16
    Audion of the audit fought it yes their
  • 30:18
    audit Department he's the head of the
  • 30:22
    Pentagon he's the one responsible he's
  • 30:25
    the one who didn't get the audit done
  • 30:26
    right another another good point and
  • 30:29
    nobody's talking about that well nobody
  • 30:32
    wants to know about it including this
  • 30:34
    president I don't think he really cares
  • 30:36
    just wants to make sure we spend a lot
  • 30:38
    on it and that were the biggest and the
  • 30:39
    baddest
  • 30:41
    so here's here we have PBS had a lot of
  • 30:46
    this because judy has gone off the rails
  • 30:48
    I really think that she misses Gwen Gwen
  • 30:52
    too and I miss Gwen's balance she's got
  • 30:56
    no she's completely unbalanced she's
  • 30:57
    she's starting to shake she's she's
  • 31:00
    really Trump hater it's unbelievable so
  • 31:03
    we have these we have Panetta and
  • 31:06
    Richard Haass so Panetta former CIA
  • 31:09
    director former Secretary of Defense for
  • 31:12
    Obama yes and Hoss was a hot day is been
  • 31:16
    a lot of different things but he's the
  • 31:17
    head of the Council on Foreign Relations
  • 31:21
    these are the guys you want for a
  • 31:23
    balance story on PBS so let's listen to
  • 31:26
    Panetta on mattis Leon Panetta to you
  • 31:29
    first your reaction when you learned
  • 31:31
    that secretary mattis had resigned I
  • 31:34
    thought it was a sad day for the nation
  • 31:36
    to lose an outstanding defense secretary
  • 31:41
    who was well experienced with regards to
  • 31:44
    national security policy and also
  • 31:47
    believed in the basic principles of of
  • 31:52
    leadership of strength of our alliances
  • 31:55
    of understanding who our adversaries are
  • 31:58
    principles that I think have served this
  • 32:01
    country well since World War two to lose
  • 32:04
    that experience to lose somebody with
  • 32:06
    those principles I think increases the
  • 32:10
    danger in this country of not having the
  • 32:15
    ability to deal with a lot of danger
  • 32:18
    points in the world today and that that
  • 32:21
    concerns me because I think it puts our
  • 32:23
    nation at risk what did he just say
  • 32:26
    other than
  • 32:28
    orange man bad what did he actually say
  • 32:30
    okay nothing I thought was what goes
  • 32:32
    with the follow-up that she goes to Haas
  • 32:34
    and asks him specifically do you think
  • 32:37
    the nation's at risk and which is what
  • 32:40
    Panetta said we're all at risk some for
  • 32:42
    some reason she thinks so too you can
  • 32:44
    tell where she asked the question this
  • 32:46
    is the Hoss not answer this question and
  • 32:48
    informated way Richard Haas you agree it
  • 32:51
    puts the nation at risk well it's
  • 32:53
    certainly a major loss he was
  • 32:55
    experienced he was sober he represented
  • 32:58
    sober hey we want our military men drunk
  • 33:01
    she was sober he represented essentially
  • 33:05
    a traditional foreign policy view for
  • 33:08
    foreign policy I'll admit my bias I
  • 33:11
    think it served this country
  • 33:12
    extraordinarily well for three-quarters
  • 33:14
    of a century
  • 33:18
    nice changing in fact he goes on and
  • 33:21
    discusses us a little bit more
  • 33:23
    this is haast now discussing the Trump
  • 33:26
    pull out of Syria which is like again
  • 33:30
    we're listening to the head of the
  • 33:31
    Council on Foreign Relations so he's you
  • 33:33
    know definitely yes he must be against
  • 33:36
    it gets me why we're doing there in the
  • 33:44
    first place but he pulls the same stunts
  • 33:46
    that these other guys have pulled we did
  • 33:48
    it on the last show I had a clip that
  • 33:49
    was similar to this where this is some
  • 33:52
    sort of a abnegation of our our
  • 33:55
    responsibility when we're not even
  • 33:56
    supposed to be in Syria it was only
  • 33:59
    gonna be a temporary thing to begin with
  • 34:01
    three months three months three months
  • 34:03
    you know no house yep but here listen to
  • 34:07
    him go on and on has again what I think
  • 34:10
    is a radical view of this country's
  • 34:12
    relationship with the world and that
  • 34:14
    will be heard far beyond the Middle East
  • 34:17
    I would think people in Taiwan in South
  • 34:20
    Korea in Europe they saw what this
  • 34:22
    president did and why would any American
  • 34:25
    ally why would any country dependent on
  • 34:27
    America somehow believe that something
  • 34:29
    like this couldn't happen to them we
  • 34:31
    have shredded our reputation for
  • 34:34
    reliability and dependability and that
  • 34:37
    might be the the greatest consequence of
  • 34:39
    the last few days what's interesting
  • 34:41
    about this yeah go ahead
  • 34:44
    what is he talking about we who's what
  • 34:48
    Li did we screw now we're leaving Syria
  • 34:51
    no but he's won well that's not what
  • 34:54
    he's saying I think to me what he's
  • 34:56
    saying is hey if you're Japan you know
  • 34:58
    you should be worried because you know
  • 34:59
    we could just pull right out and we want
  • 35:01
    you to have a base who won't protect you
  • 35:03
    I think that's what he's trying to say
  • 35:04
    we only have 800 bases around the world
  • 35:07
    so now I personally I like it I've been
  • 35:12
    advocating to get out of everything for
  • 35:14
    as long as I can remember and also
  • 35:17
    there's there was no this is all under
  • 35:18
    the phony baloney although it wasn't at
  • 35:21
    the time but under the 9/11 regulation
  • 35:24
    of the president I'm still under a state
  • 35:26
    of emergency presidents can put us into
  • 35:28
    war situations without the
  • 35:29
    only body who has the authority to do
  • 35:32
    that which is the House of
  • 35:33
    Representatives well I know some of the
  • 35:35
    degrees with you well there's a lot of
  • 35:39
    people would agree with me so far as a
  • 35:42
    clip Oh Ron Paul of course yes yeah in a
  • 35:47
    way why should it be complicated we were
  • 35:50
    in a place we shouldn't have been in the
  • 35:51
    war that's unconstitutional doesn't make
  • 35:54
    any sense we don't know why we're there
  • 35:55
    we don't know when we're supposed to
  • 35:57
    come home and finally we have a
  • 35:59
    president in this case doing his a curry
  • 36:01
    said he wants to do and they go nuts so
  • 36:05
    I guess we shouldn't be shocked shocked
  • 36:07
    I'm shocked that there would be these
  • 36:09
    factions yeah and I think you know this
  • 36:11
    is you know Washington showing its
  • 36:13
    colors here are the neo cons the main
  • 36:15
    proponents of the unitary executive he's
  • 36:18
    the decider he's the commander-in-chief
  • 36:20
    then when he finally acts as a decider
  • 36:23
    acts as a commander-in-chief in a
  • 36:25
    constitutional way removing troops from
  • 36:27
    somewhere they shouldn't go all of a
  • 36:29
    sudden he didn't tell us he didn't ask
  • 36:31
    us he's not listening to us what's going
  • 36:33
    on here the war is a dumb war and it's
  • 36:36
    unconstitutional and then they criticize
  • 36:38
    them for doing it this is this is one
  • 36:40
    place where a president that has an even
  • 36:44
    a memory of the Constitution did the
  • 36:46
    right thing yeah exactly exactly it's
  • 36:48
    also a nice time to pay attention to the
  • 36:50
    people who are adamantly against this
  • 36:52
    pullout
  • 36:55
    and just need to note their names they
  • 36:57
    may all be against it but really listen
  • 36:59
    to the you know particularly the media I
  • 37:01
    agree you know pay attention who's
  • 37:02
    really against it cuz those those that's
  • 37:04
    the enemy right there well it and it's
  • 37:07
    also part of spot to spook yes well it
  • 37:13
    seems like everybody's on board not that
  • 37:15
    that wouldn't be possible too
  • 37:19
    well the one clip I do have that I think
  • 37:23
    is interesting because it was it was
  • 37:26
    offset from the Judy's report on Trump
  • 37:31
    leaving Syria and firing mattis mm-hmm
  • 37:34
    and it seems to if you just kind of
  • 37:36
    dissect it it seems to explain what
  • 37:38
    really went on here is that you know
  • 37:40
    they think it's like Trump decided let's
  • 37:43
    just leave
  • 37:45
    when it is quite possible that he did a
  • 37:47
    bunch of deals in the background cuz he
  • 37:49
    was floating around especially with
  • 37:50
    Turkey to get himself getting our guys
  • 37:54
    out and put somebody else in to finish
  • 37:56
    the job because there's two factors in
  • 37:58
    this turkey situation and this is
  • 38:01
    explained on PBS newshour but it's not
  • 38:02
    as a separate story that's got nothing
  • 38:04
    to do with anything
  • 38:05
    but play this leaving Syria Elder Wand
  • 38:08
    deal with Trump Turkey's president ray
  • 38:11
    gypped i afforda wanted a welcomed us
  • 38:13
    plans to leave syria that came is the
  • 38:16
    Associated Press reported the president
  • 38:18
    Trump made the decision after speaking
  • 38:20
    with Erdogan last week in Istanbul the
  • 38:23
    Turkish leader said he promised the
  • 38:25
    president that Turkey will finish off
  • 38:27
    Islamic state militants we will be
  • 38:32
    working on our operational plans to
  • 38:34
    eliminate Islamic state elements which
  • 38:36
    are said to remain intact in Syria in
  • 38:39
    line with our conversation with
  • 38:40
    President Trump in other words over the
  • 38:43
    next months we will adopt an operational
  • 38:45
    style geared toward this goal her Dewan
  • 38:48
    also said that turkey is delaying a
  • 38:50
    planned operation against us back
  • 38:52
    Kurdish forces in Syria meanwhile the
  • 38:55
    Kurds warned their fighters may have to
  • 38:57
    leave the fight against Isis to confront
  • 39:00
    any Turkish attack yeah now there's
  • 39:03
    obviously deals happening here and I
  • 39:06
    think for Trump it was you know what
  • 39:11
    just stop all the crap about Saudi
  • 39:14
    Arabia you know take a back seat on the
  • 39:17
    khashoggi thing
  • 39:18
    I'll give you Syria I don't care anyway
  • 39:21
    I'll give you that yes it seems that
  • 39:24
    cut-and-dry I think so too and I think
  • 39:26
    he had to protect the Kurds and all the
  • 39:29
    protections consistent this is part of
  • 39:32
    the deal because it's part of the yeah
  • 39:34
    he said oh no we won't to go after the
  • 39:37
    Kurds right away we're gonna hang back
  • 39:42
    they'll go back to where they came from
  • 39:44
    and since and leave Syria and the Turks
  • 39:47
    are gonna come in full force to take
  • 39:49
    these remove the rest of these idiots
  • 39:51
    these Isis idiots out there's one other
  • 39:54
    that's that their whole thing up that'll
  • 39:55
    be oh my god and maybe some peace
  • 39:58
    at least for us well there's two other
  • 40:00
    things that about well first of all
  • 40:03
    there was an interesting ad in recoil
  • 40:07
    magazine which is some like aerospace
  • 40:11
    defense magazine and it was the remember
  • 40:14
    the old Blackwater logo with like the
  • 40:16
    claw Blackwater of the mercenaries yeah
  • 40:19
    Eric Prince
  • 40:20
    they said to get a full-page ad I don't
  • 40:22
    know what that cost in recoil magazine
  • 40:24
    but completely black the Blackwater logo
  • 40:26
    and then just the words we are coming
  • 40:28
    and the thinking is that pull out of
  • 40:31
    Syria but certainly Afghanistan is all
  • 40:35
    kind of surface stuff like let's bring
  • 40:38
    art let's bring our boys and girls home
  • 40:39
    but in the meantime we do send in
  • 40:42
    Blackwater Zee Academy over there called
  • 40:44
    today to still you know have the covert
  • 40:48
    operations that we need when we need
  • 40:49
    them like maybe for the poppy fields
  • 40:54
    apparently we still need him at the
  • 40:56
    poppy fields something like that and
  • 40:57
    then here and this is just turkey in
  • 41:01
    general a new update came out for
  • 41:05
    iPhones and iPads I don't use one
  • 41:09
    anymore but I do have this it is iOS
  • 41:11
    12.1 - and it includes bug fixes for
  • 41:15
    your phone a - in particular fixes bugs
  • 41:19
    with ECM activation and addresses an
  • 41:22
    issue that could affect cellular
  • 41:24
    connectivity in Turkey
  • 41:27
    I'm thinking wait a minute what what
  • 41:32
    system is turkey using that could be an
  • 41:34
    issue and I went to look for it and the
  • 41:37
    first thing you hit right off the bat is
  • 41:39
    from the when was this this was I think
  • 41:44
    a couple weeks ago that Turkey president
  • 41:49
    Tayyip Erdogan announced today the
  • 41:51
    country would boycott all electronics
  • 41:53
    from the United States in particular
  • 41:55
    targeting specifically Apple immense the
  • 41:59
    rising trade tensions between the two
  • 42:01
    countries
  • 42:05
    so it may just be coincidence but you
  • 42:09
    have a country threatening to boycott a
  • 42:12
    device specifically and then they do an
  • 42:15
    update with something that is fixes
  • 42:18
    something not working on the Turkish
  • 42:21
    cellphone Network to me it sounds like
  • 42:24
    maybe they inserted something to make it
  • 42:26
    work better on the Turkish cellphone
  • 42:29
    Network like they might do with China
  • 42:34
    or maybe they turned off something they
  • 42:36
    turned off the spy device no I think
  • 42:39
    that no because Turkey said we don't
  • 42:42
    we're gonna boycott your phones well if
  • 42:45
    it's gonna make the phone work more like
  • 42:47
    a spy device well why wouldn't they just
  • 42:48
    keep boycotting the phone how about if
  • 42:50
    it's working as a spy device for them
  • 42:53
    for the Turkish girl for the Turkish the
  • 42:56
    Chinese have some special up doors so
  • 42:58
    they can spy on them yes exactly
  • 43:01
    well yeah they got you some but the
  • 43:03
    Gulen ist's yeah all right I can buy
  • 43:09
    that that could be part of it right I'd
  • 43:11
    like to know more about it I'd like to
  • 43:12
    know more about it I'm very interested
  • 43:14
    in well then it gets you negative
  • 43:15
    hearing I can't accuse apple of anything
  • 43:21
    because you know that could get us deep
  • 43:22
    platformed yeah
  • 43:28
    well I think something's up now turning
  • 43:31
    a turkey into a major trading partner
  • 43:34
    with the United States is not a bad idea
  • 43:36
    I still admire for my visit there the
  • 43:42
    glassware that is made in Turkey is
  • 43:44
    world-class and it never gets out of
  • 43:46
    Turkey or I mean it does but not into
  • 43:48
    the United States and it's so cheap said
  • 43:51
    it would be it's just incredibly
  • 43:53
    competitive and there's a lot of stuff
  • 43:55
    that they it might benefit both
  • 43:57
    countries and maybe Trump's doing a good
  • 44:00
    thing here overall giving Turkey half of
  • 44:03
    Syria and well it's you know he's not
  • 44:06
    just giving it to Turkey he's giving it
  • 44:08
    to Russia is giving it to Iran and I
  • 44:10
    think is mended to end Syria yes thank
  • 44:13
    in Syria their own country and fine let
  • 44:16
    everyone fight it out you know let
  • 44:18
    everyone run around you know it was the
  • 44:20
    friend she wanted us to do that I mean
  • 44:22
    that's really where it all comes stems
  • 44:23
    from from total oil and and I haven't
  • 44:26
    heard anything about French that's in
  • 44:29
    the Vietnam to if you recall yeah not
  • 44:33
    from firsthand experience but yeah yeah
  • 44:36
    I've seen the Kenz brick Ken Burns
  • 44:37
    documentary but it wasn't really spelled
  • 44:40
    out that well lie about it so it seems
  • 44:44
    to me like what that's just
  • 44:47
    what it seems you go on with that but
  • 44:50
    first of all the Russians were always in
  • 44:53
    Syria the word EU sport yes so what's
  • 44:57
    new about Russia being there nothing
  • 44:59
    nope
  • 45:01
    No so now all of a sudden is a big deal
  • 45:06
    Russia's pulling this Trump strings yeah
  • 45:10
    well I'm I'm just anti-war so I'm happy
  • 45:13
    with it I don't see any reason you know
  • 45:15
    I understand what are what are uh what
  • 45:19
    our business is here in the United
  • 45:21
    States I'm not ashamed of it I'd leave
  • 45:23
    if I was but you know we create war
  • 45:25
    stuff that's what we spend the most
  • 45:27
    money on that's what the most people and
  • 45:28
    working in an industry and of course
  • 45:30
    they are the other side of it health
  • 45:31
    care but we make war stuff
  • 45:33
    there is also an eleven billion dollar
  • 45:35
    contract Erewhon agreed to four more of
  • 45:38
    our stuff as a part of the deal with
  • 45:39
    Trump you know and then so the same goes
  • 45:42
    for Saudi Arabia you know one hundred
  • 45:43
    and ten hundred and twenty billion
  • 45:45
    dollars says like once you guys take our
  • 45:47
    stuff we'll help you operate it and kill
  • 45:49
    each other and we'll just sit here with
  • 45:50
    our own own oil that could be an actual
  • 45:53
    strategy
  • 45:55
    it's not a bad strategy I just like to
  • 45:57
    know why the Lib Joe is out there are
  • 46:00
    all pro-war all of a sudden because the
  • 46:02
    anti-trump is just whatever he does you
  • 46:05
    gotta be against him no matter what your
  • 46:06
    position was in the past and now it's
  • 46:10
    get getting to an interesting point
  • 46:11
    where people who should be pacifists and
  • 46:14
    and want peace on earth harb advocating
  • 46:19
    for the exact opposite and that's what's
  • 46:22
    funny that's why he gotta keep an eye on
  • 46:24
    who's doing who's saying what cuz you
  • 46:26
    got to remember what they're doing
  • 46:29
    white musing
  • 46:33
    I think we could well this anger kind of
  • 46:35
    crossed over with the wall and some
  • 46:41
    shoehorning ramming through of the five
  • 46:45
    billion dollar budget last minute
  • 46:47
    through the house which of course that
  • 46:49
    has has to go through the Senate which
  • 46:51
    seems impossible but it was I don't know
  • 46:54
    what the move is but the way it played
  • 46:57
    out in the m5m is Trump was kind of
  • 47:00
    hanging back he was defeated because you
  • 47:02
    know Nancy and Chuck went into the Oval
  • 47:04
    Office beat the crap out of him he was
  • 47:06
    like who but then it was apparently
  • 47:10
    people like Ann Coulter and and anyone
  • 47:15
    on Fox who were telling the the
  • 47:17
    president that he had no teeth lost his
  • 47:19
    manhood and he should stand up stand up
  • 47:22
    for the wall and hilariously that's how
  • 47:26
    it was interpreted by Jeffrey Toobin
  • 47:29
    constitutional lawyer worst that guy on
  • 47:31
    CNN and Republicans are complaining
  • 47:34
    Jeffrey that they can't figure out
  • 47:36
    exactly where the president stands they
  • 47:38
    meet with him they hear what he's saying
  • 47:40
    but he's not telling them I'm gonna sign
  • 47:42
    this but I'm not gonna sign that well
  • 47:44
    what they should be doing obviously is
  • 47:46
    checking with Ann Coulter because
  • 47:48
    apparently she's the President of the
  • 47:49
    United States as far as this is
  • 47:51
    concerned I mean this was a deal this
  • 47:54
    deal was agreed to Mitch McConnell who
  • 47:56
    was nobody's idea of a flaming liberal
  • 47:58
    Paul Ryan everybody thought this deal
  • 48:01
    was done and you know what the president
  • 48:03
    lost on the wall because he didn't have
  • 48:06
    the votes but then you know Laura
  • 48:08
    Ingraham and Ann Coulter started
  • 48:10
    challenging the president's manhood and
  • 48:12
    and the the House Republicans started
  • 48:15
    stamping their feet and the president
  • 48:17
    decided no no I'm gonna scream and yell
  • 48:19
    and shut down the government even though
  • 48:21
    I still don't have the votes so I mean I
  • 48:24
    guess and Coulter has to figure out how
  • 48:26
    this is all going to end because she's
  • 48:27
    the person who is driving the the
  • 48:31
    federal government at this point god
  • 48:33
    help us god help us lunatic and by the
  • 48:38
    way what is he I mean this is just a
  • 48:40
    promotion for Ann Coulter yeah she's
  • 48:43
    been misquoted
  • 48:44
    and they just user the user is a
  • 48:46
    whipping boy they like to throw around
  • 48:48
    but also the manhood thing that came
  • 48:51
    from some overheard conversation of
  • 48:54
    Nancy Pelosi yes exactly
  • 48:58
    so I'm not quite sure how this got I
  • 49:01
    mean I didn't follow any of acts that I
  • 49:02
    barely watch that kind of stuff
  • 49:06
    so here is here's shields his Brooks and
  • 49:10
    shields by the way they they took Brooks
  • 49:11
    away and they put in his Gershon guy so
  • 49:14
    now his shields and and a worse shields
  • 49:18
    this PBS has gone off the rails I mean
  • 49:21
    they don't have any balance whatsoever
  • 49:23
    anymore but listen to shields misquoting
  • 49:26
    Coulter hours away from yet another
  • 49:28
    government shutdown what does it say
  • 49:31
    about the way things are working right
  • 49:33
    now in our government well manat well
  • 49:36
    Judy I mean we went from a week ago you
  • 49:38
    recall in the White House which seems
  • 49:40
    eons ago when Senator Schumer and
  • 49:43
    Democratic host leader and speaker
  • 49:45
    Pelosi met with the president and the
  • 49:47
    president you know mantle he stepped up
  • 49:49
    and said I'll take the shot to show it
  • 49:52
    shutdown you know be happy to do it on
  • 49:54
    my put it to me then to an agreement
  • 49:57
    with the Senate that it would stay they
  • 50:02
    fund it through the new year and then
  • 50:04
    come back and revisit it and then
  • 50:07
    immediately a reaction a revulsion if
  • 50:10
    you would from the president's longest
  • 50:13
    and strongest supporters TV commentators
  • 50:16
    on the right such as Rush Limbaugh and
  • 50:18
    Coulter and said that this was a sellout
  • 50:21
    that on the wall and Coulter going so
  • 50:23
    far as to say his presidency was a joke
  • 50:25
    and that he had scammed the American
  • 50:29
    people oh so now they brought into
  • 50:31
    compass oh this is all Republican right
  • 50:34
    wing talk people Sochi and now they're
  • 50:38
    now they're important there's something
  • 50:43
    more behind this I don't know what it is
  • 50:45
    yet but there's no reason for a guy like
  • 50:47
    this - I mean okay you can talk about
  • 50:50
    Ann Coulter so that was maybe some where
  • 50:52
    the impetus but you bring in Rush
  • 50:53
    Limbaugh I've heard other you know of
  • 50:56
    course they bring in Hannity and Carlson
  • 50:57
    any anybody they can from mainly from
  • 51:00
    Fox News
  • 51:01
    what's the there's there's more to that
  • 51:04
    first of all let's make the correction
  • 51:07
    here that she never said the presidency
  • 51:09
    is a joke
  • 51:11
    she had a longer comment she says if
  • 51:14
    after four years he doesn't get the wall
  • 51:16
    built then the presidency will be a joke
  • 51:19
    uh-huh that's a lot different than the
  • 51:21
    presidencies a joke and a scam I don't
  • 51:24
    know where you got even got that part
  • 51:25
    but there is a I don't know maybe
  • 51:29
    they're trying to separate the herd or
  • 51:32
    they're trying to do something
  • 51:34
    dividing conquer the right wing I think
  • 51:37
    they're going for a massive cable D
  • 51:39
    platform D platform fox news from every
  • 51:43
    cable station in the platform your boy
  • 51:49
    and hey who's my boy your boy is hold on
  • 51:53
    I'll tell you your boy that's not your
  • 51:56
    boy your boy is savage Michael Savage
  • 51:59
    kicked off in New York so he effectively
  • 52:02
    lost his his New York affiliate yeah
  • 52:05
    that's a huge issue that's a huge
  • 52:08
    problem
  • 52:08
    oh it's a major problem he's now he's
  • 52:11
    he's he's deployed effectively D
  • 52:13
    platformed from national radio you don't
  • 52:17
    have New York you have almost nothing I
  • 52:20
    come from that business a New York's a
  • 52:23
    big deal it's the deal it's New York ed
  • 52:26
    threw him out just causing a problem by
  • 52:29
    the way I think that it may cause more
  • 52:31
    trouble for WGN this for any well but
  • 52:33
    you know who they're bringing in and
  • 52:34
    this is what I found interesting Ben
  • 52:37
    Shapiro
  • 52:39
    Oh God Ben Shapiro is unlistenable Ben
  • 52:42
    Shapiro is a shill he is a Hollywood
  • 52:46
    creation by admission
  • 52:50
    he's a Hollywood creation and now he's
  • 52:52
    got he's got the seven stations he's
  • 52:55
    cleared in New York he's cleared in DC's
  • 52:56
    cleared in Chicago these are good
  • 52:59
    stations mmm ABC New York and WLS
  • 53:03
    Chicago he's got Atlanta he's got KABC
  • 53:05
    Los Angeles this is a massive change but
  • 53:09
    Shapiro was also not a not a pro Trump
  • 53:13
    guy no he was anti Trump I think he is a
  • 53:16
    never Trump ER but he's really being put
  • 53:20
    he's he's being positioned in he can't
  • 53:23
    handle it yes he can
  • 53:25
    I don't think so you you yes you can it
  • 53:29
    doesn't number people to grab that three
  • 53:31
    hours of talk every day five days a week
  • 53:34
    a year every small number of people
  • 53:38
    they're all semi nuts
  • 53:41
    okay well that not that I'm not
  • 53:43
    interested in that part of it I'm he's
  • 53:45
    being put in here he has zero radio
  • 53:47
    experience that I know of and now he's
  • 53:49
    like I said he can't Haley that's what
  • 53:51
    you do what you just said is but it
  • 53:53
    doesn't matter because he'll kill he'll
  • 53:55
    stay in there to propagate the message
  • 53:58
    look what's Lucas he's replacing Michael
  • 54:00
    Savage he's nobody's gonna listen to his
  • 54:02
    show it's unimportant it's very
  • 54:06
    important it's not WG there's money
  • 54:09
    involved that's very important okay
  • 54:11
    first of all you're wrong because the
  • 54:13
    Ben Shapiro has quite an audience on
  • 54:15
    online and people like him a lot of
  • 54:18
    people like him a lot of moderate people
  • 54:20
    like him I think he he has a following I
  • 54:23
    think it will translate to his radio
  • 54:25
    show but it will effectively change the
  • 54:28
    audience that listens to what they think
  • 54:32
    would be right-wing talk radio which it
  • 54:34
    won't be because it's it's just not what
  • 54:36
    he's not he's he's in there he's in he's
  • 54:38
    more left-wing than right-wing and it's
  • 54:41
    which doesn't work very well on the
  • 54:42
    radio I'm agreeing with you but they're
  • 54:44
    gonna give it a damn good shot with this
  • 54:46
    kid I think he's gonna believe Monica
  • 54:48
    Crowley and some of these others that
  • 54:50
    just do not draw the draw the audience I
  • 54:53
    know what you're saying about he does
  • 54:56
    have an audience you're right but a
  • 54:57
    large massive audience is very hard to
  • 55:00
    control and very hard to attract and he
  • 55:04
    is annoying hey I had this argument at
  • 55:09
    home about the guy so you don't have to
  • 55:10
    tell me this
  • 55:11
    but people like him he has a message
  • 55:14
    that is kind of down the middle and it's
  • 55:16
    supplanting again going back toward the
  • 55:19
    original questions like what's happening
  • 55:22
    why are we picking on people it's - it's
  • 55:24
    to get rid of them it's time - deep
  • 55:26
    platform all of these people well it's a
  • 55:28
    good try you can go go for it I mean did
  • 55:30
    you know the joke is of course you what
  • 55:32
    Savage did
  • 55:34
    why he's doing a podcast yeah he's doing
  • 55:39
    a podcast is all you New Yorkers listen
  • 55:41
    to my podcast and I think a lot of them
  • 55:43
    will because I think I think if
  • 55:45
    anybody's gonna drive the podcasting
  • 55:47
    side of the industry it could be him
  • 55:50
    thank you Michael
  • 55:51
    now yeah yeah we need more competition
  • 55:54
    good I want you I did we don't company
  • 55:57
    we don't we we don't have any real
  • 55:59
    competition now I want to mention
  • 56:03
    something about five six years ago I
  • 56:06
    think it was and I ever since then I
  • 56:08
    banished
  • 56:08
    I used your reaction you don't even
  • 56:13
    remember this I'm absolutely sure of it
  • 56:14
    I played a ben shapiro clip on this show
  • 56:18
    around six years ago and you went nuts
  • 56:22
    really yes you hated the guy you didn't
  • 56:26
    like his but you didn't like anything
  • 56:28
    about me I've never said that no no play
  • 56:31
    me the tape
  • 56:33
    it was like you were so worked by this
  • 56:35
    clip that I Nev never played a bench
  • 56:38
    trick do you have the clips since it's a
  • 56:41
    lot too long ago I probably do have it
  • 56:43
    I'll see if I can find it and we'll play
  • 56:45
    it again and see what your reaction is
  • 56:47
    but what was he doing six years ago your
  • 56:51
    react your reaction is the general
  • 56:53
    public's reaction to a guy like this now
  • 56:56
    maybe six years ago maybe he look he
  • 56:58
    went to a complete change he went
  • 57:00
    through you know wardrobe hair makeup
  • 57:03
    the whole thing you know he's got he's
  • 57:05
    good for radio he's got a bit yeah he's
  • 57:07
    got a big-time agent yeah it is it
  • 57:09
    really is that's what you get with an
  • 57:11
    ingre ham that's what you get with these
  • 57:12
    you know Sean Hannity it's a certain
  • 57:14
    look it's a certain type but he's a wolf
  • 57:18
    in sheep's clothing I'm trying to see if
  • 57:21
    my brother Nathaniel let me see if I can
  • 57:24
    find your your shapiro clip from six
  • 57:27
    years ago you might be at a shapiro
  • 57:32
    might not hmm okay well that's not
  • 57:35
    helpful then I mean you'd look at look
  • 57:40
    your search engine let me see 2014 maybe
  • 57:45
    it's five years ago ben shapiro
  • 57:48
    on guns ben shapiro guns more morality
  • 57:52
    socialism narcissism egomaniacs
  • 57:58
    ben shapiro on Jews now that was
  • 58:01
    seventeen uh no I don't have now I don't
  • 58:05
    know that's for to drop it well you
  • 58:08
    brought it up I think I think Ben
  • 58:10
    Shapiro radio is gonna be a fail and
  • 58:13
    it'll be fat faster than weed okay I
  • 58:16
    think it will be successful and you will
  • 58:19
    eat crow I will refuse to eat crow crows
  • 58:24
    have a very noble bird
  • 58:29
    uh how did we get onto this we were
  • 58:32
    talking about the these guys going off
  • 58:35
    on Colt or yeah and meanwhile we had I
  • 58:39
    played the shield's clip where he makes
  • 58:41
    all these assertions so then I expect
  • 58:43
    this guy Gershon from the Guapo wawapo
  • 58:46
    comes on and he's talking about this is
  • 58:50
    the same the topic is about the way
  • 58:52
    Trump handled the budget issue to the
  • 58:55
    point where we're at an impasse where
  • 58:57
    does the fault lie well big picture this
  • 59:00
    shows how easy the President of the
  • 59:03
    United States is to manipulate I mean he
  • 59:05
    had agreed to a deal then some of his
  • 59:07
    you know toughest supporters Limbaugh
  • 59:09
    Ann Coulter and some of the team in the
  • 59:14
    Fox News morning programs came out
  • 59:17
    against it and he changed his view like
  • 59:20
    a puppet on a string it was really
  • 59:23
    extraordinary a sign of weak leadership
  • 59:26
    and I could bet you that Russia and
  • 59:30
    China and North Korea look at something
  • 59:33
    like that about how easy this president
  • 59:35
    is to manipulate so that's the context
  • 59:38
    for this the you know I so I don't think
  • 59:40
    that he can make a particularly good
  • 59:42
    case having agreed already to something
  • 59:46
    rather reasonable that you know the 30
  • 59:49
    that he changed his view with good
  • 59:51
    reason he can't make that case
  • 59:55
    what kind of balance is this
  • 1:00:00
    when it comes to the PBS yeah
  • 1:00:04
    there's no balance there are people that
  • 1:00:07
    could rationalize and maybe give us some
  • 1:00:10
    perspective from a different you know
  • 1:00:12
    point of view but no PBS they've already
  • 1:00:14
    done this with with the global warming
  • 1:00:17
    and they've admitted it they cannot have
  • 1:00:19
    it and gory even tried it them before
  • 1:00:22
    even thinking about it you cannot have
  • 1:00:24
    anybody on a arguing against you can't
  • 1:00:28
    have anyone against the global warming
  • 1:00:31
    thesis on the show they've already said
  • 1:00:33
    that so do you have two people on
  • 1:00:35
    there's no balance they're both going to
  • 1:00:36
    say the same thing right now they've
  • 1:00:38
    done it with the shields and Brooks
  • 1:00:40
    segment where you got shields who hates
  • 1:00:43
    Trump with a guy who hates Trump more is
  • 1:00:46
    that what your balance is real haze and
  • 1:00:49
    kind of subtle hate maybe Nitin doesn't
  • 1:00:51
    hate him so much but this guy hates him
  • 1:00:52
    a lot and that's what there's your
  • 1:00:54
    balance as balance there isn't there if
  • 1:00:56
    I were you I'd return my donation and my
  • 1:00:58
    tote bag luckily I don't donate to them
  • 1:01:02
    let's listen to another globalist mazie
  • 1:01:05
    Hirono who they like to call because you
  • 1:01:08
    know no one ever heard of mazie Hirono
  • 1:01:10
    of Hawaii that's because she's pretty
  • 1:01:13
    much an idiot yes but she says fun
  • 1:01:16
    things I was very distressed by it of
  • 1:01:18
    course and he made it very clear that he
  • 1:01:22
    and Presidential we're not on the same
  • 1:01:25
    page in terms of their world views and
  • 1:01:27
    of course Trump's war wheel is is very
  • 1:01:32
    how shall I say whack because she comes
  • 1:01:36
    up with it himself these last two days I
  • 1:01:39
    feel as though we have been on a roller
  • 1:01:40
    coaster with him at the controls because
  • 1:01:44
    first there's the announcement that
  • 1:01:45
    we're getting out of Syria where we know
  • 1:01:47
    that he didn't discuss it with anybody
  • 1:01:49
    including general mattis no giving a
  • 1:01:52
    huge Christmas present to Putin and to
  • 1:01:55
    Iran because I've been very focused on
  • 1:01:58
    what's going on as a border they make an
  • 1:02:00
    announcement that people who come who
  • 1:02:02
    are coming through for asylum purposes
  • 1:02:04
    have to wait on the Mexican side where
  • 1:02:07
    there are huge safety concerns for so
  • 1:02:09
    many of the children
  • 1:02:10
    and then of course the Senate did the
  • 1:02:13
    responsible thing last night by keeping
  • 1:02:16
    government running passing this bill by
  • 1:02:18
    a voice vote and only to have
  • 1:02:21
    presidential get all worked up because
  • 1:02:23
    he's got some right wing loud people
  • 1:02:26
    yelling at him on Fox News and suddenly
  • 1:02:30
    he says well I don't think I'm gonna
  • 1:02:32
    sign it so it is very true that he will
  • 1:02:35
    bring on the shutdown and he has to take
  • 1:02:37
    responsibility for it any effort on his
  • 1:02:40
    part to blame the Democrats will be such
  • 1:02:42
    bullshit that as I said before I would
  • 1:02:44
    hardly gave it a stamp it I think she
  • 1:02:46
    said bullshit I give her points for the
  • 1:02:52
    bullshit yeah but there's that there's
  • 1:02:55
    the the clear talking point you know
  • 1:02:56
    it's like the crazy people on Fox News
  • 1:02:58
    it's and you know there go not on the
  • 1:03:01
    same page every Ally yeah I I think
  • 1:03:05
    really this has more to do with a
  • 1:03:07
    serious media offensive on a competitor
  • 1:03:11
    in the space you know Mike your theory
  • 1:03:15
    and the Michael Savage stuff presented
  • 1:03:17
    subscriber but I like the Michael Savage
  • 1:03:19
    removal from ABC in New York is an
  • 1:03:22
    advertiser related issue you know they
  • 1:03:25
    went after his advertisers
  • 1:03:28
    yeah well they do that well yeah well
  • 1:03:31
    they were successful that's my point is
  • 1:03:33
    that we could do every show we can bring
  • 1:03:35
    one example of that if that's the
  • 1:03:36
    problem with the media today right but
  • 1:03:38
    it but when it's working and let's see
  • 1:03:41
    how it goes you know we'll see there's
  • 1:03:43
    too much of this at the same time it's
  • 1:03:45
    too much of the same stuff I think
  • 1:03:47
    there's more there's a little more
  • 1:03:48
    behind it but could be wrong we need to
  • 1:03:53
    talk about deep platforming in general
  • 1:03:55
    because I do we have a couple of things
  • 1:03:56
    to discuss we'll do that in a moment but
  • 1:03:58
    first I do need to thank you for your
  • 1:04:00
    courage and say in the morning to the
  • 1:04:02

  • 1:04:31
    feedback it's a great way to if you're

    producing a show I recommend you try to
  • 1:04:35

  • 1:04:37
    troll room but get your own trolls no

    that artwork which a lot of people liked

    a lot of people did like fried their
  • 1:04:55
    brain and when you first see it when you
