  • 0:57
    ceases to amaze traveling around you
  • 0:59
    know the kids are open skiing and so we
  • 1:01
    had their wait to learn we got together
  • 1:03
    ok what did you get
  • 1:06
    I got a bunch of just a lot of
  • 1:08
    miscellany a but including of number of
  • 1:11
    things that I've been I guess hinting
  • 1:13
    about um I also got a lamp that I needed
  • 1:17
    a big one but including verjuice and a
  • 1:21
    bunch of what kind of juice what kind of
  • 1:24
    juice verjuice ver heavy er juice what's
  • 1:29
    verjuice it is the juice of unripened
  • 1:33
    grapes Don do you make wine out of that
  • 1:36
    no no no you use it like a vinegar
  • 1:38
    substitute Oh such a sour should have
  • 1:42
    read the book
  • 1:43
    I know well I spent New Year's Day
  • 1:51
    actually the 31st and New Year's Day and
  • 1:56
    yesterday rebuilding my surface gold
  • 1:59
    laptop tablet thing ah that wasn't that
  • 2:04
    was a nightmare so how do you rebuild it
  • 2:07
    you just well our chance to screen put a
  • 2:10
    new keyboard on it this is what happened
  • 2:13
    you know when I got that thing was
  • 2:15
    somewhere in between the 1803 and 1804
  • 2:18
    update and I got it and then retracted
  • 2:20
    it and so anyway at a certain point the
  • 2:23
    you know the the 31st I turned on the
  • 2:26
    morning boom Master Boot Record
  • 2:27
    corrupted blue screens I have this
  • 2:32
    Acronis product which will help me
  • 2:34
    restore no problem and I that you were
  • 2:37
    supposed to be able to restore from the
  • 2:39
    cloud well I bet you that worked great
  • 2:44
    it would have worked great were it not
  • 2:47
    that the product here's the problem the
  • 2:49
    way it works is you use their software
  • 2:52
    and then it's gonna reboot and then it
  • 2:54
    goes into some low-level thing and then
  • 2:56
    it'll suck everything down from the
  • 2:57
    cloud and restore it which I think does
  • 3:00
    actually work
  • 3:02
    unfortunately the product is looking for
  • 3:04
    your network interface card your NIC
  • 3:07
    card at a very low level and the surface
  • 3:09
    only has a USB C and Wi-Fi so I had an
  • 3:12
    Ethernet dongle but it won't do that it
  • 3:14
    doesn't recognize it yeah she's looking
  • 3:18
    low-level and then it say oh I can't
  • 3:19
    find one and then it just restarts or
  • 3:21
    tries to restart so you have a code on
  • 3:23
    it no it's it's not low-level enough it
  • 3:25
    has to be somehow you know different
  • 3:28
    like an internal card not an external
  • 3:30
    thing well that's a security thing
  • 3:32
    obviously yeah well it was not great
  • 3:36
    hold on a second yeah here's the problem
  • 3:38
    with it would say was you're being nice
  • 3:40
    about this mm-hmm
  • 3:41
    it seems to me that you went to the
  • 3:44
    cloud through that device
  • 3:47
    eventually yes eventually yeah but when
  • 3:50
    you went to the cloud to move the stuff
  • 3:51
    there oh yes it uploaded it no problem
  • 3:54
    sure well if it uploaded it should have
  • 3:56
    seen at the time at that moment it
  • 3:59
    should have looked for this did this
  • 4:01
    low-level number and said serial number
  • 4:04
    said hey wait a minute this is something
  • 4:06
    different and then quiz the machine you
  • 4:08
    know okay okay we'll put it we'll put an
  • 4:10
    exception flag up yeah ten of that and
  • 4:13
    so when he asked that do the read the
  • 4:15
    reload no problem it shouldn't be a
  • 4:18
    problem at all it was so white why
  • 4:20
    wasn't that accomplished is the question
  • 4:22
    I'd be asking
  • 4:23
    yeah well the I've left some support
  • 4:26
    notices your product is and does not
  • 4:29
    work does not work on this particular
  • 4:31
    day now it works with a with a hard
  • 4:33
    drive backup but I already did that of
  • 4:35
    the studio machine I've cloned the drive
  • 4:37
    of the machine after every show so if
  • 4:39
    there's a problem I just swap out the
  • 4:40
    drive we're back on the air but I had
  • 4:42
    kind of built this thing up my life was
  • 4:44
    in it but although all my files were
  • 4:46
    available on the cloud I did have to
  • 4:48
    reinstall windows 10 and rebuild
  • 4:51
    everything and you know what that's like
  • 4:53
    registration codes anyway so spent a lot
  • 4:59
    of time on there she met registry issues
  • 5:01
    though all kinds of stuff but man the
  • 5:05
    thing is much faster once I put Windows
  • 5:07
    10 on and again thinking I don't know
  • 5:10
    maybe because I had the messed up
  • 5:13
    updated thing ah yeah I can see that
  • 5:16
    actually I think I believe it has
  • 5:19
    happened yeah and it BitLocker that's
  • 5:21
    where it is a bit Locker that's what
  • 5:23
    screwed me up
  • 5:24
    troll room knows what it is so my first
  • 5:26
    real um disaster recovery with Windows
  • 5:31
    the first of many I'm sure but at least
  • 5:33
    I know what not to do
  • 5:35
    to trust the damn cloud stupid ugly
  • 5:38
    stupid yes a number of interesting
  • 5:43
    events New Year's Eve
  • 5:45
    in the Netherlands you know if people
  • 5:49
    never been to the Netherlands and
  • 5:50
    certainly not around new years the Dutch
  • 5:53
    are very docile quiet calm people
  • 5:57
    but around New Year's and it's legal
  • 6:02
    people go apeshit and they let it all
  • 6:05
    out and they do that with fireworks
  • 6:06
    you're allowed to buy fireworks set them
  • 6:09
    off anywhere shoot them at people and
  • 6:11
    shoot them at people and here's a
  • 6:13
    facebook video with just a little
  • 6:16
    compilation Knoll thing is like five
  • 6:18
    minutes just about 45 seconds and this
  • 6:20
    is made up of YouTube video so it's not
  • 6:23
    a you know not a professionally produced
  • 6:25
    piece but it's just YouTube videos you
  • 6:33
    did indeed just witness a man fire
  • 6:35
    rocket from his ass cheeks to you this
  • 6:38
    might seem a little crazy or even
  • 6:40
    borderline and singing but to the Dutch
  • 6:44
    it's just another New Year's
  • 6:49
    the Netherlands 364 days of the year is
  • 6:52
    quite peaceful normally the closest the
  • 6:55
    average Dutch he gets to war or or loss
  • 6:57
    is a Picacho or loss on the 31st of
  • 7:01
    December this all changes their most
  • 7:03
    beloved New Year's tradition is making
  • 7:05
    their safe little country like a
  • 7:14
    [Music]
  • 7:22
    I get the idea I mean is that my
  • 7:26
    favorite is always the car bite milk
  • 7:28
    cannons you know they got the big metal
  • 7:32
    milk containers yeah with the top on it
  • 7:35
    and so they Jam it full of is it car car
  • 7:39
    bite is that it curb violence yeah
  • 7:42
    anyway this year which I think has
  • 7:45
    happened before they build a big bonfire
  • 7:46
    on the beach of spinning it and they
  • 7:50
    make it out of wooden pallets and this
  • 7:53
    year they decided to go for a record a
  • 7:55
    150 feet high
  • 7:57
    Tower of pallets what could possibly go
  • 8:00
    wrong so they they light this thing
  • 8:03
    New Year's Eve and because of you know
  • 8:06
    the kind of the funnel nature it it
  • 8:08
    created what they're calling the fire
  • 8:11
    NATO and this is the wind caught it just
  • 8:15
    in a you know spiraled up through this
  • 8:17
    through this 150 foot structure and
  • 8:19
    spewed out flaming you know bits all
  • 8:24
    over the city because of course the wind
  • 8:26
    turned there were rooves catching on
  • 8:29
    fire people's clothing on fighters
  • 8:31
    walking down the streets they're on fire
  • 8:35
    yeah you think that they'd pass some
  • 8:37
    legislation concerning this you can't
  • 8:40
    mess with the Dutch when it comes to
  • 8:41
    what they do on New Year's they get
  • 8:43
    insane they need it's like they need it
  • 8:45
    they need it they need to blow stuff up
  • 8:47
    and get all the aggression if they put
  • 8:50
    the clamps on that they'd be a little
  • 8:52
    more aggressive during the rest of the
  • 8:54
    year sure they would so anyway record
  • 8:58
    number of fires all over the country
  • 9:00
    people destroying stuff it's very very
  • 9:03
    sad what happens what goes on in the
  • 9:05
    Netherlands
  • 9:06
    sounds like Auckland in France McCall
  • 9:10
    had his New Year's address where he made
  • 9:12
    very sure that everyone understood that
  • 9:14
    what's going on is not just people who
  • 9:16
    are unhappy but it's clearly terrorists
  • 9:19
    and other horrible people right-wingers
  • 9:21
    I guess French president Immanuel McCoy
  • 9:24
    has used his New Year's Eve speech to
  • 9:26
    acknowledge the anger which has exploded
  • 9:28
    in the country but warmed extremist
  • 9:30
    elements some take as a pretext that
  • 9:32
    they speak in the name of the people but
  • 9:35
    what people where how in reality given
  • 9:38
    there are nothing but to make a phone
  • 9:40
    for a crowd full of atreus rail against
  • 9:42
    elected representatives force of other
  • 9:45
    journalists Jews foreigners almost
  • 9:47
    sexual that's the negation of the people
  • 9:52
    who were actually protesting hate Jews
  • 9:55
    homosexuals migrants okay there's no
  • 9:59
    pissed-off Frenchman I guess that's bull
  • 10:02
    crisp as jean provocateurs a little
  • 10:05
    twisted slant to the news in the u.s. we
  • 10:09
    had
  • 10:11
    a joke gone kind of wrong Strategic
  • 10:14
    Command which oversees America's nuclear
  • 10:16
    and missile arsenal has apollon this is
  • 10:18
    a Japanese television reporting choice
  • 10:20
    for tweeting that it was ready if
  • 10:23
    necessary to drop something much much
  • 10:25
    bigger than the New Year's Eve countdown
  • 10:28
    ball the annual countdown in New York's
  • 10:35
    Times Square
  • 10:36
    uh sure Zinn the New Year with a
  • 10:38
    brightly lit ball descending down a
  • 10:40
    special flagpole the message was posted
  • 10:43
    with a video of a b-2 stealth bomber
  • 10:46
    dropping bombs the tweet was deleted
  • 10:48
    after drawing a wave of criticism and
  • 10:51
    replaced with an apology that said the
  • 10:53
    previous tweet was in poor taste and did
  • 10:56
    not reflect the commands values yeah yet
  • 11:01
    does somebody's values reflected them
  • 11:04
    perfectly as far as I'm concerned
  • 11:07
    exactly what our values are war stuff
  • 11:09
    yeah did you see any of the television
  • 11:12
    shows that were that were on during New
  • 11:14
    Year's I flipped a few of them flipped
  • 11:17
    around a few of them I gave up I mean it
  • 11:19
    was like second-rate bands Jenny
  • 11:23
    McCarthy announcing these people had
  • 11:26
    never heard of any of them a lot of
  • 11:28
    lip-synching crap and people jumping up
  • 11:31
    and down and it was just like no it was
  • 11:34
    terror I've got me it was unwatchable
  • 11:36
    yes CNN did their annual Anderson
  • 11:38
    Cooper's drunk with somebody else and
  • 11:40
    for this it was at the second or third

    was a complete bought and paid for
  • 13:43
    Chinese operation oh and they had a
  • 13:47
    stage that had the main stage they had
  • 13:49
    their own telecast and yeah a couple
  • 13:51
    hours before midnight the score the

  • 18:42
    new president Jay el bolson ro has got
  • 18:44
    straight down to work issuing a series
  • 18:46
    of decrees on the economy agriculture
  • 18:48
    and the society both Naro former Army
  • 18:52
    captain was sworn in on Tuesdays
  • 18:53
    Brazil's first far-right president since
  • 18:55
    the military dictatorship gave way to
  • 18:58
    civilian rule back in 1985 the country's
  • 19:01
    new leader was elected on a promise of
  • 19:03
    cleaning up Brazilian politics and has
  • 19:05
    the Justice Minister has been bolstered
  • 19:07
    up to fight grasp and battle urbanized
  • 19:10
    crime listen to Elliott reports from
  • 19:12
    Brasilia today he met with the US
  • 19:15
    Secretary of State also a former Army
  • 19:18
    captain Mike Pompeo described a new
  • 19:21
    transformative relationship with Brazil
  • 19:23
    and he then went on to meet Brazil's new
  • 19:25
    foreign minister where they discussed
  • 19:26
    the issue of Venezuela now Boston ro is
  • 19:29
    a nationalist he is an avid user of
  • 19:32
    social media and of course he despises
  • 19:34
    political correctness so comparisons
  • 19:36
    have often been drawn between him and US
  • 19:39
    President Donald Trump but really Brazil
  • 19:41
    historically while it's had cordial ties
  • 19:43
    with the u.s. they've been nonetheless
  • 19:45
    fairly fairly cold fairly Feli not very
  • 19:48
    profound really Brazil has focused its
  • 19:50
    energy on bilateral trade with China
  • 19:53
    China is now Brazil's biggest trading
  • 19:55
    partner and it'll be interesting to see
  • 19:57
    how that trade dynamic plays out given
  • 20:00
    the trade war between the US and China
  • 20:01
    already China is buying more Brazilian
  • 20:03
    soya beans to offset American trade
  • 20:06
    tariffs bastards
  • 20:08
    they're cutting our business yeah is
  • 20:12
    this is this guy Bo Sona Boston ro

  • 21:13
    where we want to go and the potential
  • 21:15
    that Brazil has many fear Brazil's young
  • 21:17
    democracy is now at risk for years
  • 21:19
    Bolson otto has praised Brazil's former
  • 21:21
    military dictatorship while speaking in
  • 21:23
    favor of torture and threatening to
  • 21:24
    destroy him prisoner banished his
  • 21:26
    political opponents
  • 21:29
    nah I'm not sure what I was supposed to
  • 21:31
    hear well what it was it went on IG
  • 21:34
    clipped it poorly sorry no it went on to
  • 21:36
    go on about how bowling she may never
  • 21:39
    met with the Boeing guy and the new
  • 21:43
    veneer the DoD Department of Defense yes
  • 21:46
    the new Boeing guy was a munitions
  • 21:48
    company oh she did that again yeah
  • 21:52
    oh yes didn't didn't we play that last
  • 21:54
    time it was a different clip does it
  • 21:57
    over and over she keeps doing that how
  • 21:58
    Boeing is just a weapons company it's
  • 22:01
    true it while true that typically isn't
  • 22:03
    what you say no it's not how you do know
  • 22:08
    there's a weapons company jet I was
  • 22:12
    thinking about the the DoD audit and how
  • 22:15
    long this has been going on and and you
  • 22:19
    know just just what the hell is is
  • 22:21
    happening with our Department of
  • 22:22
    Defense's where all our money goes every
  • 22:25
    single drop of it pretty much 700
  • 22:28
    billion dollars and I found a report
  • 22:32
    that has been going on for a long time
  • 22:34
    from 2005 when Rumsfeld was
  • 22:42
    he was the Secretary of Defense Donald
  • 22:44
    Rumsfeld under Bush and this is you'll
  • 22:50
    recall September yes September 10 2001
  • 22:55
    we found out that 2.3 trillion dollars
  • 22:58
    was missing or was unaccounted for at
  • 23:01
    the Department of Defense and I think in
  • 23:03
    this clip they even mentioned that that
  • 23:04
    was just for one year only that wasn't
  • 23:07
    you know for a couple years that was one
  • 23:09
    year I don't understand how that works
  • 23:10
    but I just want to play this this report
  • 23:13
    from CBS from 2005 had agon the day
  • 23:17
    before 911 Defense Donald Rumsfeld
  • 23:20
    declared war not on foreign terrorists
  • 23:23
    the adversaries closer to home it's the
  • 23:26
    Pentagon bureaucracy
  • 23:28
    he said money wasted by the military
  • 23:30
    poses a serious threat in fact it could
  • 23:33
    be said that it's a matter of life and
  • 23:34
    death
  • 23:34
    Rumsfeld promised change but the next
  • 23:37
    day the world changed and in the rush to
  • 23:42
    fund the war on terrorism the war on
  • 23:44
    waste seems to have been forgotten my oh
  • 23:47
    three budget calls for more than I like
  • 23:50
    how they called the war on waste instead
  • 23:52
    of the war on theft but okay 48 billion
  • 23:55
    dollars in new defense spending more
  • 23:56
    money for the Pentagon when its own
  • 23:58
    auditors admit the military cannot
  • 24:00
    account for 25% of what it already
  • 24:03
    spends according to some estimates we
  • 24:05
    cannot track 2.3 trillion dollars in
  • 24:08
    transactions 2.3 trillion with a tea
  • 24:11
    that's $8,000 for every man woman and
  • 24:15
    child in America to understand how the
  • 24:17
    Pentagon can lose track of trillions
  • 24:19
    consider the case of one military
  • 24:22
    accountant who tried to find out what
  • 24:23
    happened to a mere 300 million we know
  • 24:26
    it's gone but we don't know what they
  • 24:28
    spend it on Jim Murray a former marine
  • 24:30
    turned whistleblower is risking his job
  • 24:32
    by speaking out for the first time about
  • 24:35
    the millions he noticed we're missing
  • 24:37
    from one defense agency's balance sheets
  • 24:39
    memory tried to follow the money trail
  • 24:41
    even Criss crossing the country looking
  • 24:44
    for records the director looked at me
  • 24:46
    says why do you care about this stuff
  • 24:53
    I care about doing a good shot he was
  • 24:56
    reassigned and says officials then
  • 24:58
    covered up the problem by just writing
  • 25:01
    it off they gotta cover it up that's
  • 25:03
    where the corruption comes in they've
  • 25:05
    got to cover up the fact that they can't
  • 25:06
    do the job
  • 25:07
    the Pentagon's Inspector General
  • 25:09
    partially substantiated several of
  • 25:11
    memories allegations but could not prove
  • 25:13
    officials tried to manipulate the
  • 25:15
    financial statements twenty years ago
  • 25:17
    Pentagon employee Franklin C Spinney
  • 25:20
    made headlines exposing what he calls
  • 25:22
    the accounting games I'm still there and
  • 25:25
    although he does not speak for the
  • 25:26
    Pentagon he believes the problem has
  • 25:28
    gotten worse those numbers are pie in
  • 25:30
    the sky that books are cooked routinely
  • 25:32
    year after year after year retired Vice
  • 25:35
    Admiral Jack Shanahan commanded the
  • 25:37
    Navy's second fleet the first time
  • 25:39
    Donald Rumsfeld served as defense
  • 25:40
    secretary with good financial oversight
  • 25:44
    we could find 48 billion dollars it was
  • 25:48
    changed in that building without having
  • 25:49
    to hit the taxpayers it's been going on
  • 25:52
    for a while I forgot about it how long
  • 25:55
    it's been going on that we don't know
  • 25:56
    what forever and there was once gets the
  • 25:58
    biggest scandal in the country nobody
  • 26:00
    seems to want to pay attention to it
  • 26:02
    nobody discusses it it's not on the
  • 26:04
    campaign trail you don't hear Elizabeth
  • 26:06
    Warren talking about it there was a
  • 26:09
    Democrat who made a big stink about this
  • 26:12
    and subsequently pretty much got
  • 26:15
    disappeared from life do you remember
  • 26:17
    who that was a woman
  • 26:20
    no not offhand
  • 26:24
    makini
  • 26:27
    makini yes from Georgia
  • 26:31
    Democrat oh the black Democrat McKinney
  • 26:34
    she made a fuss secretary according to
  • 26:37
    the Comptroller General of the United
  • 26:38
    States there are serious financial
  • 26:41
    management problems at the Pentagon to
  • 26:44
    which mr. Cooper alluded fiscal year
  • 26:46
    1999 two point three trillion missing
  • 26:49
    fiscal year 2000 1.1 trillion missing
  • 26:53
    and the OD is the number one reason why
  • 26:56
    the government can't balance his
  • 26:58
    checkbook the Pentagon has claimed year
  • 27:01
    after year but the reason it can't
  • 27:03
    account for the money is because it's
  • 27:04
    computers don't communicate with each
  • 27:06
    other
  • 27:07
    my second question mr. secretary is who
  • 27:10
    has the contracts today to make those
  • 27:13
    systems communicate with each other how
  • 27:16
    long have they had those contracts and
  • 27:18
    how much have the taxpayers paid for
  • 27:21
    them thank you representative the second
  • 27:26
    question I've forgotten what the second
  • 27:30
    question was I think miss Jonas knows it
  • 27:33
    okay thank you Miss we Kenny I
  • 27:38
    appreciate the question I appreciate
  • 27:39
    your interest in the department's
  • 27:41
    financial condition and we are working
  • 27:43
    very hard on that program I just come
  • 27:45
    back I understand that you're working
  • 27:47
    hard on it my question was who has the
  • 27:50
    contract how long has that they had that
  • 27:53
    contract and how much money have we
  • 27:55
    spent on it
  • 27:56
    in general we spend about 20 billion
  • 27:58
    dollars in the department on information
  • 28:00
    technology systems the the accounting
  • 28:04
    systems are part of that I can get you
  • 28:06
    the exact number for the record of what
  • 28:09
    we spend on our current what we call
  • 28:10
    legacy systems
  • 28:12
    and those that were moving toward and
  • 28:14
    who has the contracts
  • 28:16
    that would be a multitude of individuals
  • 28:18
    that you name sound please well I think
  • 28:21
    that's the top of the head well I would
  • 28:24
    that's not privileged information
  • 28:28
    look please we still have time so please
  • 28:32
    I would be glad to provide for the
  • 28:35
    record I don't want to talk from the top
  • 28:37
    of my head correct yes so they were
  • 28:39
    spending 20 billion dollars on their
  • 28:43
    bookkeeping legacy systems in two
  • 28:46
    thousand five or six this is and Cynthia
  • 28:50
    McKinney
  • 28:51
    I think she's teaching at the University
  • 28:53
    of Bangladesh and I'm not kidding I'm
  • 28:56
    not kidding she's just gone this is the
  • 29:01
    real problem I said was the problem yeah
  • 29:05
    yeah it's it's the problem it's stealing
  • 29:08
    our money that's it around their buddies
  • 29:12
    and then kind of losing track of it
  • 29:14
    obviously and this kind of to lose track
  • 29:16
    of it to steal it and it cuts but it is
  • 29:19
    it's tough to your rights theft not
  • 29:20
    waste and it plays into the newsletter
  • 29:25
    in a way what's the newsletter about
  • 29:27
    what's-his-face
  • 29:30
    everyone's talking about his op-ed you
  • 29:32
    slam dreamt Romney Mitt Romney Mitt
  • 29:36
    Romney or monger oh listen to this I
  • 29:39
    wanna play this little bit here's guys
  • 29:40
    Mitt Romney is a dick
  • 29:43
    he's a total douchebag I don't want to
  • 29:45
    play this is talking about the academic
  • 29:47
    industrial military complex I have this
  • 29:51
    brute Bruce Ackerman this Bruce Akram is
  • 29:57
    a professor at Yale and he was on France
  • 30:00
    24 and he is branding the woman is fed
  • 30:06
    up with him and he's ranting about Trump
  • 30:07
    and he makes it he I will you have to
  • 30:11
    listen to this is what the academia
  • 30:13
    actually believes this is the grant
  • 30:17
    number one President Trump has proudly
  • 30:22
    taken responsibility for this shutdown
  • 30:27
    everyone recognizes everyone recognizes
  • 30:30
    that this is entirely unnecessary only
  • 30:34
    to just today the new leader the new de
  • 30:37
    facto leader of the Senate Mitt Romney
  • 30:40
    wrote an opinion essay in The Washington
  • 30:43
    Post condemning this as merely posturing
  • 30:48
    and unnecessary everyone recognizes that
  • 30:51
    President Trump is trying to show the
  • 30:55
    world that he is still in charge when he
  • 30:58
    isn't you know of course not we know
  • 31:02
    who's really in charge the guys with the
  • 31:04
    guns
  • 31:07
    we have Mitt Romney somehow before even
  • 31:09
    takes office as Lee is the leader he's a
  • 31:12
    junior senator who's gonna suffer from
  • 31:16
    this by the way these guys this doesn't
  • 31:19
    go over well with Matt with the people
  • 31:21
    that are the leadership of these up but
  • 31:22
    he's hot these traditional houses I mean
  • 31:26
    that's what happened in fact I just
  • 31:27
    wanted to jump around with that theme
  • 31:28
    but today you have a Bruce Ackerman to
  • 31:31
    clip where she runs him off play that
  • 31:34
    but then I have to play one other clip
  • 31:36
    UK held in a meeting now with the
  • 31:40
    Democratic and Republican leadership but
  • 31:42
    he has not actually reached out them out
  • 31:46
    to them in advance to ask to negotiate
  • 31:49
    terms you just don't bring them into the
  • 31:54
    Situation Room in the White House and
  • 31:56
    then expect to have a deal without
  • 32:00
    preparatory preparatory negotiations so
  • 32:03
    if the if unless he caves in in an
  • 32:11
    obvious way unfortunately
  • 32:14
    my prediction is that this shutdown will
  • 32:17
    continue for a while until he recognizes
  • 32:22
    that he is making a fool of himself
  • 32:25
    okay Bruce Ackerman your professor at
  • 32:27
    Yale University thanks to your time
  • 32:29
    today
  • 32:30
    yeah thanks dang guy by the way is
  • 32:32
    responsible for the social justice
  • 32:33
    warrior movement really I think so he
  • 32:36
    should take a public speaking class
  • 32:38
    while he's at school it's like one
  • 32:43
    lecture but back to Romney I want to
  • 32:46
    play this clip this is Romney already
  • 32:47
    mouthing off on Democracy Now incoming
  • 32:50
    Republican senator Mitt Romney of Utah
  • 32:52
    writes president Trump has not risen to
  • 32:55
    the mantle of the office in a New Year's
  • 32:57
    Day the mantle let's just stop there for
  • 32:59
    a second the mantle that's a is that not
  • 33:03
    something that we used to refer to kings
  • 33:07
    and the Pope you know the mantle I am
  • 33:13
    wearing my mantle of ruler
  • 33:15
    shit yeah so why does Romney consider
  • 33:18
    that to be a mantle or does he think
  • 33:20
    Trump wants it to be mantle and doesn't
  • 33:22
    know how to dotted wear it I mean which
  • 33:24
    one is it I don't know I would like to
  • 33:27
    have somebody out there to get me the
  • 33:29
    genesis of why Romney hates Trump to his
  • 33:32
    core
  • 33:34
    it's probably more personal than
  • 33:36
    anything the office in a New Year's Day
  • 33:42
    op-ed published by The Washington Post
  • 33:44
    Romney says he supports Trump's policies
  • 33:47
    including tax cuts deregulation
  • 33:49
    appointment of conservative judges to
  • 33:51
    federal court but Romney says Trump has
  • 33:53
    failed to show honesty and integrity as
  • 33:55
    president writing quote with the nation
  • 33:58
    so divided resentful and angry
  • 33:59
    presidential leadership and qualities of
  • 34:01
    character is indispensable and it is in
  • 34:04
    this province where the incumbent
  • 34:05
    shortfall has been most glaring Romney's
  • 34:08
    among the freshmen members of Congress
  • 34:10
    set to be sworn in by Vice President
  • 34:12
    Mike Pence on Thursday um Romney and his
  • 34:16
    little laundry list there specifically
  • 34:18
    mentioned lowering taxes right mm-hmm
  • 34:20
    here's here's Romney on lowering taxes
  • 34:23
    in 2012 just a few years ago that we can
  • 34:26
    afford to do a little bit more to make
  • 34:28
    sure we're not blowing up the deficit
  • 34:29
    the president began this segment so I
  • 34:31
    think I get the last word so I well but
  • 34:35
    but he gets the first word of that
  • 34:37
    segment I get the last word that's I let
  • 34:42
    me repeat let me repeat what I said
  • 34:44
    I'm not in favor of a five trillion
  • 34:45
    dollar tax cut that's not my plan my
  • 34:48
    plan is not to put in place any tax cut
  • 34:50
    that will add to the deficit boom yeah
  • 34:54
    yeah so the guy's full of crap of course
  • 34:56
    he also did say famously that Russia was
  • 35:00
    the real problem
  • 35:02
    even though it isn't he was already on
  • 35:04
    that tip way ahead of the game yeah he
  • 35:07
    was true he'd read they'd read him in a
  • 35:10
    little too soon too soon I have a clip
  • 35:13
    of Romney where was he at on some show
  • 35:18
    addressing the mantle etc and listen to
  • 35:23
    the globalist words and terms that he
  • 35:26
    uses particularly in regarding what the
  • 35:28
    United States is because according to
  • 35:30
    Romney we own it all the world it's ours
  • 35:34
    you said that you were dismayed by
  • 35:36
    President Trump's decision in December
  • 35:38
    to pull troops out of Syria which
  • 35:41
    resulted in the resignations of mattis
  • 35:43
    and the special envoy to the global
  • 35:44
    coalition to defeat Isis Brett McGurk
  • 35:46
    the prattle the president says we need
  • 35:48
    to get out of these foreign
  • 35:49
    entanglements and that's what he ran on
  • 35:50
    what why is he making a mistake
  • 35:52
    well the reason that we're involved in
  • 35:55
    the world is to make the world safer
  • 35:56
    which is good for the world and good for
  • 35:59
    us okay because we trade with places
  • 36:01
    throughout the world we sell products
  • 36:02
    throughout the world ah ah ha we sell
  • 36:05
    products war products people come and go
  • 36:07
    into our various countries and we share
  • 36:09
    not only culture but education
  • 36:10
    technology innovation - whoa did you
  • 36:13
    hear what he said listen carefully to
  • 36:16
    this because we trade with places
  • 36:19
    throughout the world we sell products
  • 36:20
    throughout the world people come and go
  • 36:22
    into our various countries and we share
  • 36:24
    not only people come and go into our
  • 36:26
    various countries various countries call
  • 36:36
    this guy has because we trade with
  • 36:39
    places we sell products throughout the
  • 36:42
    world people come and go into our
  • 36:44
    various countries and we share not only
  • 36:46
    culture but education technology
  • 36:48
    innovation and so having a a stable
  • 36:50
    world where we can conduct a trade is a
  • 36:53
    very good thing for us and for the world
  • 36:54
    okay he's talking about trade trade
  • 36:56
    buying and selling our countries trade
  • 36:58
    trade buy and sell trade and and so
  • 37:01
    we're in Syria with a very small
  • 37:02
    footprint about 2,000 people clearly to
  • 37:04
    trade to help our allies there the Kurds
  • 37:07
    to trade and in some respects to provide
  • 37:10
    some stability to that region so that
  • 37:12
    Assad or air21 or the
  • 37:14
    the you know the the Iranians don't rush
  • 37:18
    in and slaughter people I'm sorry yeah
  • 37:21
    aren't the Turks in NATO aren't they our
  • 37:23
    allies now you're worried about them
  • 37:25
    slaughtering people and and hurting our
  • 37:28
    allies slaughter our allies slaughter
  • 37:30
    our allies the Turks so so so pulling
  • 37:32
    out on a precipitous basis without
  • 37:34
    interacting with em and and coordinating
  • 37:36
    this with them and getting the input for
  • 37:38
    instance from secretary mattis is
  • 37:40
    something which i think is very
  • 37:41
    troubling to me and to a number of
  • 37:42
    others just that just wants to sell more
  • 37:45
    war stuff that guy is the worst
  • 37:49
    he is
  • 37:52
    how did he ever became the nominee for
  • 37:53
    the Republican mine it is one on me
  • 37:55
    money money
  • 37:58
    this guy's loaded you have money you can
  • 38:01
    you can run parts of the country
  • 38:05
    when dislike money yeah Bloomberg money
  • 38:09
    yeah Bloomberg wants to run - I got to
  • 38:12
    put him on the list and he's gonna run
  • 38:16
    under the midget party Oh God
  • 38:19
    don't do that there are short people who
  • 38:21
    listen to the show you know I'm sorry
  • 38:23
    everybody I really feel bad about
  • 38:26
    meanwhile Oh Cassie Alexander Ocasio
  • 38:28
    Cortez is making waves herself yeah this
  • 38:32
    is very interesting but first of all she
  • 38:34
    didn't get her committee her selected oh
  • 38:37
    I have the clip good let's do this
  • 38:39
    Pelosi cuts off AOC at the knees climate
  • 38:43
    activists pushing for the creation of a
  • 38:45
    green new deal committee when Democrats
  • 38:47
    take control of the House this week were
  • 38:49
    met with disappointment Friday when
  • 38:51
    presumptive incoming House Speaker Nancy
  • 38:53
    Pelosi announced the creation of another
  • 38:55
    environmental panel instead the Select
  • 38:57
    Committee on the crime climate crisis is
  • 38:59
    set to be led by long-standing Florida
  • 39:02
    Congress member Cathy castor proponents
  • 39:04
    of the green New Deal have argued the
  • 39:06
    panel will be too weak as it will not
  • 39:08
    have legislative power and may not have
  • 39:11
    subpoena power the proposal for a green
  • 39:13
    new deal also sought to bar Congress
  • 39:15
    members who accept money from the fossil
  • 39:17
    fuel industry I think maybe sighs not
  • 39:21
    just knees boom boom boom done get out
  • 39:24
    he's not happening AOC and AOC is
  • 39:28
    fighting back partner she fights back
  • 39:31
    the worse it's gonna be for her along
  • 39:34
    with the ROE Khanna a Democrat from
  • 39:37
    California Oh rogue they are opposing
  • 39:39
    the new rules package now I had to look
  • 39:42
    in this because there wasn't quite
  • 39:43
    familiar with it but the way the House
  • 39:45
    of Representatives works is they have
  • 39:48
    rules because you know they're basically
  • 39:50
    they hold the purse strings so they
  • 39:51
    determine who gets money and you know
  • 39:54
    how much and where it goes
  • 39:55
    and they have a rule and one of the
  • 39:57
    rules is currently under the trump
  • 39:59
    administration it's called cut go
  • 40:02
    so anything you want to spend some warm
  • 40:04
    you want to spend some money over here
  • 40:06
    you want to spend more money than we
  • 40:07
    have you have to cut something else
  • 40:09
    called cut go the Democrats want to
  • 40:13
    change the rules which needs to be voted
  • 40:15
    on by the whole house to Pago Pago and
  • 40:20
    the pay-go rules means you have to be
  • 40:26
    able so you don't cut but you have to
  • 40:29
    have the money to pay for it
  • 40:33
    so that could come from many many
  • 40:34
    different places but what you're not
  • 40:35
    allowed to do under Pago is just print
  • 40:38
    up money and that of course doesn't fit
  • 40:42
    with the aoc plan because she has said
  • 40:44
    even in a grooved green New Deal the way
  • 40:46
    they're gonna pay for it is the way we
  • 40:48
    paid for the Great Recession by printing
  • 40:51
    up the money and when I think we printed
  • 40:54
    up a trillion or two trillion for that
  • 40:56
    and so she's going to vote against the
  • 40:58
    rules package they owe that I think you
  • 41:01
    don't then with it need like 18 to votes
  • 41:03
    to be against the rules package and then
  • 41:06
    it won't pass it'll stay cut go which
  • 41:08
    means even though the Democrats will
  • 41:10
    have the house the rule will remain in
  • 41:12
    place that if they want to spend money
  • 41:15
    somewhere it has to be cut somewhere
  • 41:16
    else so Cortes is really on the she's
  • 41:20
    she's on the edge with this one who she
  • 41:22
    can if she can get a couple more people
  • 41:23
    to to participate
  • 41:27
    she's a troublemaker but I think she's a
  • 41:34
    troublemaker I think it's fun to watch
  • 41:36
    it's incredibly fun to watch if she
  • 41:38
    really knows how Pelosi operates no not
  • 41:43
    yet
  • 41:44
    she'll find out oh geez daughter had
  • 41:48
    some comets that they recorded locally
  • 41:50
    saying that's this she's the documentary
  • 41:52
    filmmaker is not proposed whose daughter
  • 41:54
    does be she says my mom could cut your
  • 41:56
    head off and you wouldn't even know
  • 41:58
    you're bleeding yeah and her head is
  • 42:04
    gone and her head is gone
  • 42:09
    all right so that didn't care of what
  • 42:12
    did I notice is one thing that's not
  • 42:14
    being played in our news at all and that
  • 42:17
    is the the old bromide the Chinese like
  • 42:21
    to use when they get into trouble mm-hmm
  • 42:24
    with us which is uh threatened Taiwan oh
  • 42:27
    yes yes yes
  • 42:29
    French 24 this China China Taiwan heats
  • 42:33
    up reunification is inevitable she's in
  • 42:37
    pings message to Taiwan 40 years after
  • 42:40
    China ended its military confrontation
  • 42:42
    with the island now the Chinese
  • 42:44
    president says use of force is still on
  • 42:47
    the table
  • 42:48
    we're willing to negotiate sincerely and
  • 42:51
    expand all our efforts in striving for
  • 42:54
    the prospect of peaceful reunification
  • 42:56
    ng woman but we do not promise to
  • 42:59
    renounce the use of force and reserve
  • 43:03
    the right to use all necessary measures
  • 43:06
    Taiwan has never formally declared
  • 43:08
    independence but has been self governed
  • 43:11
    since 1949 when the Nationalists fled to
  • 43:14
    the island after losing China's Civil
  • 43:17
    War to the Communist Party
  • 43:19
    thirty years later in 1979 China made a
  • 43:23
    call for unification and ended its
  • 43:25
    routine bombardment of the island but
  • 43:28
    Beijing continues to see Taiwan as a
  • 43:30
    rogue province and in recent years has
  • 43:33
    conducted regular military drills in the
  • 43:35
    region xi Jinping wants Taiwan to come
  • 43:38
    under the same one country two systems
  • 43:40
    policy as Hong Kong and Macau not a
  • 43:43
    proposition rejected by the Taiwanese
  • 43:45
    president I have to reaffirm that Taiwan
  • 43:50
    will never accept the one country two
  • 43:52
    systems policy and the majority of
  • 43:54
    Taiwanese people will never accept that
  • 43:56
    either the glances meanwhile China has
  • 43:59
    been using diplomatic and economic
  • 44:01
    pressure to sideline Taiwan on the
  • 44:03
    global stage last year Beijing convinced
  • 44:07
    El Salvador and the Dominican Republic
  • 44:09
    to cut diplomatic ties with Taipei whose
  • 44:12
    sovereignty is now recognized by just 17
  • 44:14
    nations how is this any different from
  • 44:19
    Russia and Putin and Crimea
  • 44:24
    this rig with as far as I mrs. Farr
  • 44:27
    different first of all most of the
  • 44:29
    people living on Taiwan are Taiwanese
  • 44:33
    and they're they're not like a bunch of
  • 44:37
    mandarins from Beijing living there in
  • 44:39
    the Crimea was mostly Russians okay and
  • 44:43
    I think that's a major difference and so
  • 44:45
    if you had a referendum in China and
  • 44:47
    Taiwan - mostly okay so so China they
  • 44:50
    would vote no now you're getting more
  • 44:51
    towards my point is this is this is
  • 44:54
    China looking to annex re annex or
  • 44:58
    whatever you want to call it at I want
  • 45:01
    and as you pointed out no one's talking
  • 45:03
    about it
  • 45:06
    they don't know what to talk about they
  • 45:08
    don't know what to say or what to think
  • 45:09
    this happened during the last time this
  • 45:11
    was a real major situation where these
  • 45:14
    two islands quill moyers quill Moy and
  • 45:18
    Matsu these two islands that were 1/2
  • 45:21
    owned by Taiwan and ones owned by China
  • 45:22
    and this was during the Nixon
  • 45:25
    administration and it was gonna be a
  • 45:27
    point of argument at the debates what
  • 45:31
    are you gonna do if China you know takes
  • 45:33
    over the other island because they keep
  • 45:35
    kept threatening to do it and it's just
  • 45:39
    there China pulls the stunt all the time
  • 45:41
    they tend to pull it in Republican
  • 45:42
    administrations hmm not sure why that is
  • 45:45
    but I think it's because we're I think
  • 45:49
    there's some concern that China is you
  • 45:51
    know taking over the world why do they
  • 45:52
    always stop short though they always are
  • 45:54
    threatening this it keeps coming back
  • 45:55
    and then they never really do anything
  • 45:59
    well they have so many people is the
  • 46:01
    problem hmm and if they ever did
  • 46:04
    something is probably nothing we could
  • 46:06
    really do about it mm-hmm and I don't
  • 46:08
    know what that may be a real mess if
  • 46:10
    they detect Taiwan but when I first time
  • 46:12
    I went to Taiwan which is really in the
  • 46:13
    90s maybe the late eighties you used to
  • 46:15
    get shirts made there oh yeah I would
  • 46:18
    always get watch guy Korea Korea Taiwan
  • 46:20
    yeah I used to get shirts made in Hong
  • 46:23
    Kong but then now it's too expensive
  • 46:24
    like really expensive and tell us about
  • 46:28
    your shirts your shirt job there were
  • 46:31
    special shirts there just tailor made
  • 46:34
    shirts as all they are they have nice
  • 46:35
    fabrics they're about 15 bucks apiece
  • 46:37
    you forgetting nowadays are more like 20
  • 46:39
    you're forgetting the most important
  • 46:41
    part
  • 46:43
    you had these shirts made with a special
  • 46:45
    breast pocket Oh No yes okay sorry
  • 46:49
    you're right I had the I had my own
  • 46:51
    pattern so I bring a pattern over so I
  • 46:53
    want these shirts made with these
  • 46:55
    pockets and I want to certain you know
  • 46:56
    Perry Ellis patent his shoulders and
  • 47:00
    there's a number of features I like on
  • 47:02
    my shirts and so time I had this huge
  • 47:06
    breast pockets that would conveniently
  • 47:08
    hold a CD in the pocket and disappear
  • 47:12
    down into the pocket perfectly so if you
  • 47:15
    went to somebody's house and you wanted
  • 47:16
    to steal some of their CDs you could
  • 47:19
    easily put it in the pocket know at one
  • 47:21
    point also have pockets that fit a five
  • 47:23
    inch floppy yeah you are the gadfly of
  • 47:29
    Silicon Valley a fantastic custom-made
  • 47:33
    shirt you might as well do something
  • 47:34
    custom yeah exactly
  • 47:37
    huge pocket what's that force for my
  • 47:39
    floppy disk hey hey hey girls want to
  • 47:43
    see my floppy very nice
  • 47:47
    anyway so that yeah Deb Taiwan and Jen
  • 47:49
    South Korea or the places have the
  • 47:53
    custom shirts made inexpensively about
  • 47:55
    20 bucks maybe around there and they'll
  • 47:59
    do anything so this this little back and
  • 48:04
    forth with China is not being covered at
  • 48:06
    all by our media and it's we're all in
  • 48:10
    we've gotten about it Chinese have been
  • 48:12
    putting the screws to everybody who does
  • 48:13
    business with Taiwan the Chinese are in
  • 48:16
    times they own Times Square I mean come
  • 48:19
    on it's like there's a lot of money
  • 48:21
    flowing the problem - no agenda show is
  • 48:24
    not seeing anyone or Remini be or any of
  • 48:26
    that nuts because we're banned we are
  • 48:29
    actually blocked in China no it doesn't
  • 48:31
    surprise me I have heard from more than
  • 48:33
    a few people I can't tell anyone - China
  • 48:37
    - check this because they can't get the
  • 48:38
    show hmm so we're blocked for what
  • 48:42
    reason we've been deep platformed by
  • 48:44
    China why are we blocked in China it's a
  • 48:46
    question it's just called D platform
  • 48:48
    that sounds better
  • 48:48
    why are we D platform in China what do
  • 48:51
    we have well how much China coverage do
  • 48:53
    we even have this that important more
  • 48:54
    than the mainstream one stories enough
  • 48:58
    that's the problem I them that's the
  • 49:00
    problem right there crazy
  • 49:04
    we actually I believe that our show has
  • 49:07
    been D platformed multiple times without
  • 49:10
    us really on what we've we've seen the
  • 49:12
    results but we weren't able to figure it
  • 49:14
    out and there is a study was done a test
  • 49:17
    who did this
  • 49:20
    a report group called mg who the hell
  • 49:25
    are these guys
  • 49:26
    I am GE you're under them some sounds
  • 49:29
    fishy to be quite honest mg M Jimmy see
  • 49:33
    what it stands for
  • 49:34
    mg about us anyway this is mg they did a
  • 49:39
    test of speed o of spam of emails and so
  • 49:44
    newsletters essentially being sent to
  • 49:48
    Google Yahoo and what was the an AOL
  • 49:54
    yeah yahoo email AOL email and gmail
  • 49:58
    email and they tracked how many
  • 50:02
    newsletters went to spam during the
  • 50:06
    period October 4th to November 6 and
  • 50:09
    especially 2 days before the election
  • 50:12
    all right leaning entities as they call
  • 50:15
    them in their study went to spam all
  • 50:19
    interesting and so the assertion here
  • 50:22
    actually I would say it's an accusation
  • 50:25
    is that the email providers were were
  • 50:29
    sending newsletters of right-wing
  • 50:31
    candidates to spam and and if you and if
  • 50:35
    you look on yahoo 70% or more most 100
  • 50:41
    percent Josh Holly Rick Scott Dean
  • 50:43
    Heller Mike Braun Kevin Cramer all to
  • 50:45
    spam then you had the the Democrats 0%
  • 50:49
    is it the same for AOL almost the same
  • 50:52
    percentages Gmail was a little better
  • 50:55
    but they still had a hundred percent for
  • 50:58
    a couple of candidates going to spam
  • 51:01
    and we know how this email game we dealt
  • 51:04
    with it at me vo even pod show me vo we
  • 51:07
    had to pay because we had emails that
  • 51:10
    would go out if someone created an
  • 51:12
    account or if you want to retrieve your
  • 51:14
    password or a notification and we just
  • 51:17
    happy we set that system up we're
  • 51:19
    talking 2008 is six seven eight
  • 51:21
    somewhere six probably we just set that
  • 51:24
    up and emails weren't arriving which is
  • 51:26
    difficult if someone wants to recover
  • 51:27
    their password and they were all being
  • 51:29
    blocked not even getting through not
  • 51:31
    even getting to spam because we weren't
  • 51:34
    an official a mass email provider which
  • 51:37
    apparently you need to be need to be or
  • 51:39
    hire the services in order to get
  • 51:42
    through to these companies on an on any
  • 51:44
    scale other than an individual it's a
  • 51:48
    tax and it's a kleiner perkins company
  • 51:51
    to so we got a deal but still it was
  • 51:53
    crazy we've had thousands a month just
  • 51:55
    to be let through on email
  • 51:57
    well my let the last email I sent out to
  • 51:59
    one that first show eleven hundred we
  • 52:01
    ended up with a higher norm rate we have
  • 52:05
    by a number of people that report this
  • 52:07
    mmm-hmm a higher than normal rate going
  • 52:10
    into the promotions box at Google
  • 52:15
    yeah the promotions box that's another
  • 52:17
    one yeah and how did you know that just
  • 52:19
    feedback from people that you know that
  • 52:21
    yeah yeah is it because this would one
  • 52:23
    or two guys in particular say there's
  • 52:24
    today's for your information today's
  • 52:26
    email went into the regular box today's
  • 52:28
    email went into promote its gonna
  • 52:30
    feedback good feedback yeah so it that
  • 52:33
    is a form of deep platforming sadly yeah
  • 52:38
    even less because we've let but holla
  • 52:42
    but we pay the know Jenna show pays
  • 52:44
    MailChimp and they're in an approved
  • 52:47
    emailer so we pay to get through but
  • 52:50
    then on the other end we still have
  • 52:51
    these companies going man we'll throw
  • 52:52
    that into spam
  • 52:55
    and it could just be some some algorithm
  • 52:59
    that looks for certain combos of words
  • 53:01
    you tried to figure out what these
  • 53:03
    combos are over the years and I've
  • 53:05
    gotten a few of them you still haven't
  • 53:07
    done the Trump is Trump socks or you got
  • 53:10
    to do as a subject line to see if
  • 53:12
    everyone gets it
  • 53:13
    Trump sucks test yeah it's the TST
  • 53:19
    yeah maybe I might try it his next
  • 53:21
    couple newsletter it's worth it's worth
  • 53:22
    a shot could work the I've always known
  • 53:29
    that it was the apps that is that you
  • 53:31
    know let me step back for a second
  • 53:34
    the thing that Facebook and Twitter but
  • 53:36
    let's just keep it at Facebook for a
  • 53:37
    second dang know at Google to that
  • 53:39
    continuously say to everybody is your
  • 53:42
    data is your data we don't sell your
  • 53:44
    data your data belongs to you it's your
  • 53:46
    data your edit your data your data it
  • 53:48
    the term data is very misleading in this
  • 53:51
    the term data refers to stuff you post
  • 53:54
    and your photos etc that's really what
  • 53:58
    they're talking about when they say your
  • 54:00
    data but the data that is created by
  • 54:03
    actions you take that you don't actually
  • 54:05
    know is inherently not your data
  • 54:08
    according to Silicon Valley and they
  • 54:10
    don't tell you about it and I've always
  • 54:12
    thought that you know the issue with the
  • 54:16
    with tracking from Silicon Valley mainly
  • 54:18
    location-based I think that's the main
  • 54:20
    thing you know where someone is you get
  • 54:21
    a good idea who they hang out with and
  • 54:23
    and what they're doing just based on
  • 54:25
    location but the apps any app that has
  • 54:30
    the Facebook advertising SDK software
  • 54:35
    development kit included is tracking you
  • 54:39
    like no one else's business Facebook is
  • 54:42
    you with your Android phone if you open
  • 54:44
    up a any app that has the Facebook SDK
  • 54:48
    but really there's a thousand
  • 54:50
    advertising SDKs
  • 54:52
    it sends data back to home base with a
  • 54:56
    lot of information about you at that
  • 54:58
    very moment the Triple C Computer Club
  • 55:00
    in in Germany those guys have been
  • 55:03
    around for decades ever they the CCC
  • 55:05
    baby what's the genesis of that group do
  • 55:07
    you know well the computer clubs are a
  • 55:10
    huge popular thing in the 70s and early
  • 55:13
    80's because as we got these these new
  • 55:15
    machines the information we were getting
  • 55:20
    was pretty scant and so far you couldn't
  • 55:22
    get enough information and so you joined
  • 55:24
    these clubs and the clubs were there
  • 55:26
    which were fantastic
  • 55:27
    you join one of these clubs and then
  • 55:29
    they bring guests and from Microsoft
  • 55:32
    companies and they could get grilled
  • 55:34
    were you a member of any of these clubs
  • 55:36
    back in the day well you would never I
  • 55:38
    was never technically a member but you
  • 55:41
    could go to any of the meetings mm-hmm
  • 55:43
    so yeah I went to a lot of meetings who
  • 55:45
    went to homebrew I went to this one in
  • 55:48
    Berkeley there was I think Palo Alto
  • 55:51
    Computer Club if I'm not mistaken or
  • 55:53
    that was homebrew I'm not and they all
  • 55:54
    had their own BBS
  • 55:57
    generally yeah diluted but the BBS was
  • 56:01
    interesting because they would have
  • 56:03
    these same experts and you could ask
  • 56:06
    questions on the BBS and get your
  • 56:08
    questions answered by something doesn't
  • 56:09
    work those were the days where you had
  • 56:11
    to write or borrow or find someone else
  • 56:13
    who could write drivers for printers Oh
  • 56:16
    before the pre-windows days there was no
  • 56:18
    simple way if I'm talking to a printer
  • 56:21
    the term in Silicon Valley was hey man
  • 56:24
    it's all about the drivers was that like
  • 56:26
    the number one thing all about the
  • 56:27
    drivers well I don't know about that but
  • 56:31
    the drivers were quite important yes so
  • 56:34
    you didn't have the right driver you the
  • 56:36
    peripherals wouldn't work yeah it's
  • 56:38
    still kind of that driver issues so the
  • 56:43
    CCC's did an excellent presentation
  • 56:45
    you'll find it in the show notes I
  • 56:47
    clipped one little bit of it just to
  • 56:48
    give you an idea but to set it up they
  • 56:51
    only did this on Android they only did
  • 56:52
    it with a select number of apps but the
  • 56:54
    apps that were reporting a lot of
  • 56:56
    information the ones I found interesting
  • 56:58
    were the period tracker just imagine if
  • 57:01
    you're tracking your period what kind of
  • 57:04
    information that says about you and what
  • 57:07
    that what information is being sent but
  • 57:09
    also travel apps baby progression apps
  • 57:13
    anything that's free pretty much and
  • 57:15
    even although they they didn't do enough
  • 57:18
    study on it even if you upgrade from the
  • 57:21
    freemium to the premium model the
  • 57:24
    advertising SDK just it sits there just
  • 57:27
    sits in there and whenever you open the
  • 57:28
    app it's sending data here's a here's a
  • 57:31
    clip from this presentation which I
  • 57:32
    thought was a real eye-opener about the
  • 57:34
    true spying that's going on
  • 57:36
    so our first finding was that over 61%
  • 57:39
    of the apps we tested automatically
  • 57:41
    transferred data
  • 57:43
    before these any other like if they if
  • 57:46
    you just open the out so it's 21 hours
  • 57:48
    34 so for example his kayak and as
  • 57:53
    you'll see pretty much immediately from
  • 57:55
    when the actors at flipped it that first
  • 57:57
    request is straight to facebook.com they
  • 58:00
    said the whole load of other dates tools
  • 58:02
    many other companies decides thank you I
  • 58:06
    can't let it go on for a while but
  • 58:07
    ultimately you end up from their home
  • 58:09
    screen which is kind of amusing because
  • 58:11
    it's got this at the bottom of it
  • 58:14
    without your permission
  • 58:18
    are you able to hear this yeah yeah so
  • 58:22
    you know sending all this going I
  • 58:23
    mention when I mention that kayak is the
  • 58:25
    is the website that Obama if you recall
  • 58:30
    used to promote endlessly oh yeah well
  • 58:34
    waiting they have a little bit more info
  • 58:36
    on kayak in this clip the top example
  • 58:43
    here is kayak and kayak sends your
  • 58:46
    entire search to Facebook every time you
  • 58:49
    do a search in there which is lovely
  • 58:50
    so and it's interesting what they send
  • 58:53
    cuz it's not just it's not just for the
  • 58:56
    content of your search there's also some
  • 58:58
    other stuff like your user score
  • 59:00
    whatever that is it's got app for skated
  • 59:03
    session IDs and all sorts of other
  • 59:04
    things that they're sending to Facebook
  • 59:07
    the other one that's on the bottom here
  • 59:09
    is the King James Bible and it's quite
  • 59:11
    typical of a lot of ways that app
  • 59:14
    developers implement the SDK and allows
  • 59:16
    them to track your usage through the app
  • 59:18
    so this one they actually told you watch
  • 59:23
    verse and passage of the Bible you'd
  • 59:25
    read which is a what Facebook needs to
  • 59:28
    know but nerd but think about that
  • 59:36
    Facebook knows what chapter or verse
  • 59:39
    you're on in your King James Bible app
  • 59:41
    [Music]
  • 59:43
    but we don't do anything with your data
  • 59:45
    so and then the last bit is the actual
  • 59:48
    advertising data though Facebook users
  • 59:50
    and this is a request to their ad
  • 59:54
    network and there's something slightly
  • 59:56
    interesting static it comes from here is
  • 59:59
    that you know like the device is on
  • 1:00:00
    charge the map the battery percentage is
  • 1:00:02
    full there's free space and this isn't
  • 1:00:05
    this isn't even the most comprehensive
  • 1:00:07
    example I've seen no other data on there
  • 1:00:09
    such as accelerometer positions the
  • 1:00:12
    other slight interesting thing again all
  • 1:00:14
    linked with the VF ID so yeah it's
  • 1:00:17
    crucial to remember this happens whether
  • 1:00:19
    you're a Facebook user or you're not a
  • 1:00:21
    Facebook with you logged in or you're
  • 1:00:23
    not logged in so it's making profiles
  • 1:00:25
    are being made regardless of whether
  • 1:00:26
    you're have a Facebook account or you
  • 1:00:28
    don't have a Facebook account well you
  • 1:00:29
    have to use this some of these apps and
  • 1:00:31
    a profile is being built
  • 1:00:33
    people don't know this this is really
  • 1:00:37
    really evil and there are thousands you
  • 1:00:40
    the advertising you want Adam oh sure
  • 1:00:43
    sure hasn't targeted to you yes but
  • 1:00:47
    they're doing this before the app even
  • 1:00:48
    is functional for you you're just
  • 1:00:52
    opening the app and it's sending all
  • 1:00:53
    this that's what chrome does to you open
  • 1:00:56
    up Chrome it's talking to home base for
  • 1:00:58
    an hour but worse and then all kinds of
  • 1:01:00
    stuff who knows is disgusting
  • 1:01:05
    it is disgusting it should be illegal I
  • 1:01:08
    think it is actually in some funny way
  • 1:01:10
    oh really
  • 1:01:12
    well I mean dude cookies I thought
  • 1:01:15
    there's a bunch of laws about you can't
  • 1:01:17
    go on somebody else's machine and start
  • 1:01:19
    using their storage
  • 1:01:23
    I know when you sign up for one of the
  • 1:01:25
    browsers that probably did probably has
  • 1:01:26
    it in the house when you sign up terms
  • 1:01:29
    of service should be illegal
  • 1:01:30
    the worst is ancestry DNA we now know in
  • 1:01:36
    there EULA
  • 1:01:38
    they actually it so if you get your DNA
  • 1:01:43
    tested through ancestry DNA and you sign
  • 1:01:46
    off like yeah okay this is good I'm good
  • 1:01:48
    to go you can have my my DNA data and
  • 1:01:50
    you can process it what you are actually
  • 1:01:52
    agreeing to is the perpetual royalty
  • 1:01:55
    free worldwide license to use your DNA
  • 1:01:58
    for anything they want to
  • 1:02:01
    next to uncovering your ethnic mix
  • 1:02:03
    discovering distant relatives finding
  • 1:02:05
    new details about your unique family
  • 1:02:07
    history with this simple DNA test but
  • 1:02:10
    what's interesting is after I think it's
  • 1:02:13
    three years then that DNA data they have
  • 1:02:16
    is no longer yours it's theirs in
  • 1:02:19
    perpetuity but you no longer have you
  • 1:02:22
    can use it but you no longer have any
  • 1:02:23
    claim to ownership of the results of
  • 1:02:26
    that test it's right in their user
  • 1:02:29
    licensing agreement one of your another
  • 1:02:34
    thing to avoid it's hard to avoid EULA's
  • 1:02:40
    well something's got to be done about
  • 1:02:41
    that I keep seeing it little cracks in
  • 1:02:44

    on it takes a long time for people to
  • 1:02:57
    understand and for it to bubble to the
  • 1:02:58
    top and you need some kind of event with
  • 1:03:01
    something that people can just point to
  • 1:03:03

    hello John and Adam on show ten eighty I
  • 1:06:15
    wrote to ask for jobs karma in abeyance
  • 1:06:17
    since I thought I might get fired and
  • 1:06:20
    you guys gave me some good tips on how
  • 1:06:23
    to cover my ass we did well it turns out
  • 1:06:26
    I victim remember but that's one of the
  • 1:06:29
    things we were both good at me mainly
  • 1:06:34
    ended up leaving that job I've been
  • 1:06:37
    unemployed since October thirty it's but
  • 1:06:39
    good news I got a job offer in Portland
  • 1:06:41
    Oregon this is also the bad news by the
  • 1:06:43
    way starting at the end of this month
  • 1:06:46
    job karma works also decided to get my
  • 1:06:49
    ham technician license on my time off
  • 1:06:51
    and I'm studying for the generally very
  • 1:06:53
    good I have no idea what my peerage
  • 1:06:56
    level is I know I'm probably around Vai
  • 1:06:59
    count but I don't want to go back over
  • 1:07:01
    the years and find all the accounting
  • 1:07:03
    maybe one of these days before I start
  • 1:07:04
    my new job if any other producers have
  • 1:07:06
    an easy way to find out all the
  • 1:07:08
    donations other than coming through the
  • 1:07:09
    show notes I'd certainly appreciate it
  • 1:07:12
    I'd like to request a full al sharpton
  • 1:07:14
    jingle and karma shot for everyone who
  • 1:07:16
    needs it congratulations on eleven
  • 1:07:18
    hundred shows you guys are the best 73's
  • 1:07:21
    so it can't the she'll help him out
  • 1:07:25
    how's what he gonna go through the
  • 1:07:27
    numbers of this guy I don't know I
  • 1:07:29
    thought he had no oh maybe I'm wrong
  • 1:07:32
    yeah three years ago he had a program
  • 1:07:34
    that was using there was contact list
  • 1:07:37
    whatever it was that you told was
  • 1:07:38
    terrible yeah it was well that's what
  • 1:07:41
    did that job and now we don't have it
  • 1:07:44
    anymore
  • 1:07:44
    no so somehow this turned into my fault
  • 1:07:50
    we must they are all giddy about a
  • 1:07:54
    shutdown the tortise in the race then
  • 1:07:57
    co-author of Kubrick's you too lead
  • 1:08:01
    singer Bono
  • 1:08:04
    we suspect Johar tsarnaev rush limbaugh
  • 1:08:09
    you've got karma thank you very much sir
  • 1:08:13
    Craig let's figure it out or I can if
  • 1:08:17
    says Craig sends this I think he uses
  • 1:08:19
    PayPal exclusively I can probably go
  • 1:08:23
    into the PayPal books which believe me
  • 1:08:26
    is not not fun too friendly and the
  • 1:08:29
    worst part about PayPal is that it's
  • 1:08:31
    classic example of a web app or you know
  • 1:08:34
    web the cloud app you know you click and
  • 1:08:36
    wait and just like an electron app so
  • 1:08:41
    you click and you wait and you wait I
  • 1:08:46
    might get some somewhere I mean if he
  • 1:08:48
    gives me some examples where you thinks
  • 1:08:50
    he thinks he's vice can I work with that
  • 1:08:52
    all right onward to my presents the
  • 1:08:56
    Grand Duke of the Pacific Northwest
  • 1:08:59
    since Wayne Mellon saw once again Grand
  • 1:09:04
    Duke so Grand Duke Dwayne Tigard Oregon
  • 1:09:09
    $1100 ITM and happy eleven hundred for
  • 1:09:12
    the Grand Duke at the Pacific Northwest
  • 1:09:13
    2018 was challenging for donations
  • 1:09:16
    giving and receiving there's a plentiful
  • 1:09:17
    so here's to a plentiful 2019 I hope so
  • 1:09:25
    what happens if the economy collapse now
  • 1:09:27
    what would our numbers would look like
  • 1:09:28
    it would suck come not necessarily mmm
  • 1:09:32
    not necessarily really karma - yes
  • 1:09:36
    really
  • 1:09:38
    karma - offered producers in a Renatus
  • 1:09:42
    wins the challenge I think that would I
  • 1:09:43
    said I don't know if Adam can do this
  • 1:09:45
    one a random Ocasio Cortez I so for all
  • 1:09:50
    the freeloaders who have never stepped
  • 1:09:52
    up I so
  • 1:09:55
    do I do we even have ISOs from her did
  • 1:10:00
    we got some clips from her but no I
  • 1:10:02
    suppose that I know of I think Duane may
  • 1:10:07
    be referring to clips and ice those are
  • 1:10:11
    very specific like to one or two it's
  • 1:10:12
    reword pops right that we please
  • 1:10:15
    specifically cut out to use at the end
  • 1:10:17
    of the show or elsewhere I don't see
  • 1:10:18
    what I have here I would support
  • 1:10:20
    impeachment I think that you know we
  • 1:10:23
    have the grounds to do it I think what
  • 1:10:25
    really we need to focus on is making
  • 1:10:26
    sure that we are advocating for the
  • 1:10:29
    policies to win in November but
  • 1:10:31
    ultimately I think that what we need to
  • 1:10:33
    kind of focus on Cortez nothing short
  • 1:10:46
    enough exactly and finally Sir Patrick
  • 1:10:50
    Coble who is no fees borough Knight
  • 1:10:56
    $1,100
  • 1:10:57
