  • 1:45
    one
  • 2:00
    you know long after we are gone these
  • 2:03
    songs will still be floating around the
  • 2:04
    internet they won't know or know why wow
  • 2:09
    man
  • 2:10
    2019 back in the day those guys were
  • 2:13
    weird weirdos what is this zephyr they
  • 2:17
    keep talking about come on let's get
  • 2:19
    back in my flying car yeah that'll be
  • 2:23
    the day is yes before we start we have
  • 2:26
    travel advisories from the United States
  • 2:27
    State Department travel warning for
  • 2:30
    Americans going to China be careful but
  • 2:33
    also travel advisory for Italy terror
  • 2:38
    advisory no less yeah terrorist groups
  • 2:41
    continue plotting possible attacks in
  • 2:43
    Italy terrorists may attack with little
  • 2:46
    or no warning
  • 2:46
    that's how it works massive terror
  • 2:50
    attack in Italy that affected the
  • 2:52
    tourists I think I you know I sent this
  • 2:54
    to Willow who lives in Florence that's a
  • 2:56
    actually Thea's oleh outside of Florence
  • 2:59
    and she said oh this is because of our
  • 3:00
    art a whole government they're putting
  • 3:03
    fear into everybody and somehow that's
  • 3:05
    trickling up or through or whatever
  • 3:07
    that's what she said
  • 3:08
    says it makes no sense they make sense
  • 3:10
    at all but I do like how the State
  • 3:12
    Department formulates it terrorists may
  • 3:14
    attack with little or no warning really
  • 3:17
    this is a revelation yeah they gave lots
  • 3:21
    of warning told people with the
  • 3:22
    neighborhood is gonna be and they were
  • 3:23
    when they were gonna attack how they
  • 3:24
    were gonna attack and what day they may
  • 3:27
    be targeting tourist locations transit
  • 3:29
    transportation hubs marketing or
  • 3:31
    shopping malls markets or shopping malls
  • 3:33
    local government facilities hotels clubs
  • 3:35
    restaurants places of worship parks
  • 3:37
    major sporting and cultural events
  • 3:38
    educational institutions airports and
  • 3:40
    other public areas when was the last
  • 3:44
    time in Italy that any of those places
  • 3:47
    were targeted by terrorists I don't know
  • 3:50
    I don't know
  • 3:51
    never mm-hmm no they've had stuff go on
  • 3:55
    in Italy they've had problems that's
  • 3:57
    usually that's damn blown up a church
  • 4:00
    hmmm places of worship yeah maybe a
  • 4:03
    mosque
  • 4:04
    yeah well that's also a place of worship
  • 4:06
    yeah well I mean that me that would be a
  • 4:08
    target for some of the terrorists who
  • 4:10
    hated the other sect but I'm not buying
  • 4:14
    it huh well I found this week - or this
  • 4:18
    weekend to be a little tougher even than
  • 4:20
    Christmas as people still were just
  • 4:22
    really weren't quite back and you know
  • 4:25
    there was I think there's a lot of
  • 4:27
    people on furlough and to pull out to
  • 4:29
    the post office to get the mail there's
  • 4:30
    like five pieces there said the usual
  • 4:32
    tan 115 cows that were suffering again
  • 4:37
    yes checks and but I mean it comes
  • 4:42
    Avenger let me let me just get this
  • 4:44
    right so the furlough or the partial
  • 4:47
    shutdown as it's called is hurting the
  • 4:50
    show directly
  • 4:52
    yeah I think so because people get do
  • 4:55
    our people that listen to this show
  • 4:56
    that's dead donate yep
  • 4:59
    they get a check in fact we probably
  • 5:02
    when we probably have more government
  • 5:03
    listeners than we realize probably and
  • 5:07
    probably more of them not donating than
  • 5:08
    we realize that probably is a little bit
  • 5:12
    but I think we don't think it's just a
  • 5:14
    direct connection I think a lot of it's
  • 5:16
    just a the overall connection because of
  • 5:19
    the slowed down of everything and
  • 5:22
    they're trying to snap out of the
  • 5:23
    holiday season and all that sort of
  • 5:25
    thing right yeah DC girl who would know
  • 5:28
    says payroll goes in on the 9th and
  • 5:30
    payday is or is not the 11th so that's
  • 5:34
    that's when that's the real date when it
  • 5:37
    starts to get difficult for people
  • 5:40
    I I must say Oh Trump says it could go
  • 5:42
    on for years that's not exactly what he
  • 5:45
    said I watched his I watched his Rose
  • 5:46
    Garden appearance which I thought was
  • 5:48
    one of yours I thought when it was it
  • 5:50
    was one of his better appearances he was
  • 5:52
    very calm he was reasonably coherent he
  • 5:56
    didn't have a lot of the a world thing
  • 5:58
    but me didn't have a lot of that Bob
  • 6:02
    took questions did another one of those
  • 6:04
    fun hey you know shall I keep asking me
  • 6:06
    one you got more questions so I keep
  • 6:08
    this going a little bit you guys like it
  • 6:09
    even through a question to that
  • 6:13
    what's-her-name from the the black radio
  • 6:15
    network
  • 6:17
    I have no you're not Anna Navarro but
  • 6:19
    the other one you know what I'm talking
  • 6:21
    about yes you do enjoy
  • 6:25
    no no she's MSNBC no from the the April
  • 6:30
    Ryan oh god the work yes and she had an
  • 6:33
    okay question and he's a no good
  • 6:35
    question he was like he was happy
  • 6:37
    everyone was nice and and he was kind
  • 6:40
    although as I'm watching some watching
  • 6:42
    it I'm thinking in my head he's bringing
  • 6:44
    in so first of all we just kind of
  • 6:45
    change the wall to Bay can be steel it's
  • 6:48
    American steel area area but steel so be
  • 6:51
    good for American companies okay
  • 6:53
    interesting and then he brings dhaka
  • 6:55
    back in he literally said I want people
  • 6:59
    to come in and have a pathway to
  • 7:01
    citizenship we need the people he said
  • 7:04
    all these things and I'm thinking maybe
  • 7:06
    this wall maybe this five point six
  • 7:09
    billion five billion is just is just
  • 7:11
    kind of a no maybe he's going for a full
  • 7:13
    immigration deal
  • 7:15
    who knows they just it just kind of hit
  • 7:18
    me like just going for something bigger
  • 7:20
    I was gonna now analyze it correctly
  • 7:23
    whatever he's up to he in his rose
  • 7:27
    garden statement he did make it very
  • 7:29
    clear he has a he has his fallback
  • 7:31
    position yes good so first let me know
  • 7:37
    when you get tired I'm not have you
  • 7:39
    considered using emergency powers and to
  • 7:43
    grant yourself authorities to build this
  • 7:44
    wall without congressional approval and
  • 7:47
    second guess I have to go you have yes I
  • 7:50
    have and I can do it if I want so you
  • 7:52
    don't need congressional approval to
  • 7:54
    build no we can use them absolutely we
  • 7:56
    can call a national emergency because of
  • 7:58
    the security of our country absolutely
  • 8:00
    no we can do it I haven't done it I may
  • 8:02
    do it I may do it but we can call a
  • 8:05
    national emergency and build it very
  • 8:07
    quickly and it's another way of doing it
  • 8:10
    but if we can do it through a negotiated
  • 8:12
    process we're giving that a shot so is
  • 8:15
    that a threat hanging over the Democrats
  • 8:17
    I never threaten anybody
  • 8:19
    hmm alright the only promise since when
  • 8:22
    but the best part and if I had had a
  • 8:25
    beverage in my in my between my lips it
  • 8:28
    would have been spewing throughout the
  • 8:30
    throughout the common-law condo and it
  • 8:34
    kind of fits in with this Trump the
  • 8:35
    stock whisperer because whenever he says
  • 8:37
    oh well you know you might want to buy I
  • 8:39
    don't know I think it was just a glitch
  • 8:41
    in the system it's yeah the market went
  • 8:43
    up a thousand points the marked the
  • 8:45
    trading day after he said that do you
  • 8:47
    recall he was saying he was pissed off
  • 8:49
    about the price of oil he'll he's done
  • 8:53
    that a number of times well he did heat
  • 8:55
    address this specifically in his Rose
  • 8:58
    Garden speech now all of this stuff is
  • 9:01
    changing now this is a fair deal this is
  • 9:03
    a good deal for Mexico frankly oil
  • 9:06
    companies and other companies have an
  • 9:09
    incentive now to go to Mexico and take
  • 9:11
    away lap and that's why we're keeping
  • 9:14
    gasoline prices so low you look at
  • 9:16
    what's going on with gasoline prices
  • 9:18
    I mean it's rather incredible if you
  • 9:21
    look back four months ago oil hit 83
  • 9:26
    dollars
  • 9:28
    eighty-three it was heading to a hundred
  • 9:31
    and then it could have gotten to a
  • 9:32
    hundred and twenty-five you want to see
  • 9:34
    problems let that happen after I made
  • 9:38
    some phone calls to OPEC and the OPEC
  • 9:41
    nations which is essentially a monopoly
  • 9:44
    all of a sudden it started coming down
  • 9:47
    I'm very happy with what's happened and
  • 9:50
    I'm very happy that people are paying a
  • 9:52
    lot less in many cases than $2 a gallon
  • 9:54
    for gasoline you look at what's
  • 9:56
    happening everyone's talking about
  • 9:57
    didn't happen by luck it happened
  • 9:59
    through talent and I believe it in this
  • 10:11
    case I totally believe that I believe
  • 10:13
    whatever talent he has he pulled it
  • 10:15
    together and said I had
  • 10:18
    this whole cash OB thing let's start by
  • 10:20
    lowering the price that's written us
  • 10:22
    down a bit you guys are pissing me off I
  • 10:24
    just thought was funny talent I got it I
  • 10:26
    got to learn how to say that myself the
  • 10:28
    show isn't just good because it's
  • 10:29
    because talent yeah it's hard to pull
  • 10:32
    off he does it in the way he does it
  • 10:34
    it's like you know it's just like
  • 10:36
    they're just like a kicker at the end of
  • 10:38
    it at the end the end of an Origin the
  • 10:41
    clip is a good clip it was very very
  • 10:48
    funny did you have any wall clips you
  • 10:50
    have anything I got a couple related
  • 10:53
    wall clips you know it's just the wall
  • 10:56
    was tedious more house action so he
  • 11:03
    started he started this mmm on brightest
  • 11:07
    Friday and did it his first ever
  • 11:10
    appearance in the briefing room first
  • 11:13
    ever appearance in the briefing room
  • 11:14
    ball he divided want to point something
  • 11:16
    out this was I think I may have a clip
  • 11:19
    about that but this was pointed out by
  • 11:21
    every this is more important than
  • 11:23
    anything that these these networks and
  • 11:25
    democracy now and the rest of them all
  • 11:27
    the same it's like all I got is the
  • 11:30
    first appearance ever ever and I think
  • 11:33
    he'd I don't believe that's true but
  • 11:35
    okay let's say it is and then they said
  • 11:37
    he just he just told the press what he
  • 11:39
    wanted to tell him he's he called the
  • 11:41
    briefing and he told him what he wanted
  • 11:43
    to tell him and then he didn't take any
  • 11:44
    questions what kind of a briefing is
  • 11:46
    that it's a briefing all right that was
  • 11:51
    the first appearance of President Donald
  • 11:55
    Trump so significant for that factor
  • 11:58
    however he also he did not take
  • 12:00
    questions I want to discuss this with my
  • 12:01
    panelists members of this Union the
  • 12:04
    national of national Border Patrol
  • 12:06
    Council which endorsed him in during the
  • 12:08
    campaign so these are current and
  • 12:10
    retired Border Patrol agents right these
  • 12:12
    represent Border Patrol agents not the
  • 12:14
    Border Patrol we're and he has them
  • 12:18
    behind him but it's just pulling the
  • 12:21
    spotlight back to the White House and to
  • 12:23
    his point of view but it's he didn't
  • 12:26
    even take questions oh no it doesn't
  • 12:27
    really explain I think if the Democrats
  • 12:29
    can make their point and it was
  • 12:31
    there they also say they bill kristol
  • 12:34
    this guy has fallen so low to be sitting
  • 12:36
    on the panel discussing whether the
  • 12:38
    president's have this we have a
  • 12:42
    continuing resolution for the Department
  • 12:44
    of Homeland Security for a month we will
  • 12:45
    debate the border issue meanwhile we
  • 12:47
    have these six other agencies of the
  • 12:48
    federal government that you are closing
  • 12:50
    down and holding hostage and we're
  • 12:51
    willing to pass bipartisan
  • 12:53
    appropriations bills for those I think
  • 12:55
    it's a very hard argument for some
  • 12:59
    consistent by not addressing it right
  • 13:02
    and we need a wall thank you to be clear
  • 13:05
    this is basically this is a stunt I mean
  • 13:07
    this isn't a briefing so we thought
  • 13:09
    there was going to write a briefing is
  • 13:15
    questions a briefing is questions you
  • 13:17
    heard it here first briefing is
  • 13:21
    questions why are you arguing with Bria
  • 13:24
    Brie on don't argue with her
  • 13:26
    she's the worst a briefing is questions
  • 13:29
    you don't even know who she is
  • 13:32
    am I wrong here's my question regarding
  • 13:37
    this if it's Bria free if so much of the
  • 13:41
    country is really up in arms about this
  • 13:43
    it really really wants this wall may or
  • 13:46
    may not be true but before you go on
  • 13:48
    before you I want to stop and and read
  • 13:50
    you the definition of a brief word
  • 13:53
    briefing hmm does it include questions
  • 13:58
    no Oh a meeting for giving information
  • 14:03
    or instructions that's one to the
  • 14:06
    actions of informing or instructing
  • 14:09
    someone has nothing to do with questions
  • 14:12
    and answers press conference nothing
  • 14:14
    like that it's a briefing and everybody
  • 14:17
    including that clip you have was up in
  • 14:20
    arms about this a last minute briefing
  • 14:22
    that that was done a briefing right a
  • 14:27
    briefing is questions yeah no so that's
  • 14:32
    all they could argue about is whether it
  • 14:34
    was a briefing or not was really
  • 14:35
    interesting but I'm thinking if people
  • 14:38
    really want this we apparently
  • 14:42
    the capability in America to mobilize
  • 14:44
    millions of people with pussy hats and
  • 14:48
    you know we can get people on the
  • 14:50
    streets and they go down to DC how come
  • 14:51
    this doesn't happen for something as
  • 14:53
    incredibly as important as the wall why
  • 14:57
    isn't that happening I see that's almost
  • 15:02
    my question I mean is it only the left
  • 15:06
    with pussy hats who can organize is the
  • 15:08
    right that left is the ones who go on
  • 15:10
    the streets
  • 15:11
    well why doesn't the right do that if
  • 15:12
    it's if it's life or death
  • 15:14
    right when the right does that as and
  • 15:18
    case in point would be the tea party
  • 15:20
    they actually would go out into the
  • 15:22
    street they tend to be elderly or older
  • 15:24
    yes and there are young ones in that
  • 15:26
    group but then they started usually go
  • 15:27
    on the street with any sort of signs
  • 15:29
    that are need to even reflect mirror
  • 15:32
    reflect the kind of signage that they
  • 15:34
    have on the left they're called a bunch
  • 15:37
    of Nazis and that's why they don't want
  • 15:40
    to cut it down so they can't go do
  • 15:42
    anything hmm but the left are then
  • 15:45
    called an anti fob by the right and then
  • 15:48
    you can make an article those anti far
  • 15:52
    you're right well I just think if its
  • 15:54
    life or death people would take to the
  • 15:56
    streets I'd hope they would but they're
  • 15:58
    not so you just gotta wonder right
  • 15:59
    actually do it when they're
  • 16:01
    conservatives right the old farts and
  • 16:04
    everybody else takes to the streets for
  • 16:05
    over something it's not gonna be pretty
  • 16:08
    but this wall issue is is about two
  • 16:12
    things one is just not giving Trump what
  • 16:14
    he campaigned on that's definitely part
  • 16:17
    of it and the other leverage for 2020
  • 16:20
    and it's it's also leverage for a real
  • 16:23
    immigration deal which includes some
  • 16:25
    pathway to citizenship which the
  • 16:27
    Democrats desperately want that's that
  • 16:29
    is that's what that's their position and
  • 16:31
    Trump was talking about this in his
  • 16:33
    speech he's saying look well first of
  • 16:36
    all put more money into the into the
  • 16:38
    regular ports of entry where people are
  • 16:40
    overstaying their visas which I hope
  • 16:42
    would mean an exit stamp which is what
  • 16:44
    every country in the modern world has
  • 16:46
    the track of people ever left
  • 16:48
    yeah and he's talking about pathway to
  • 16:50
    citizenship I think something much
  • 16:52
    bigger may come out of this and I don't
  • 16:54
    know who this person is Cheri Bustos
  • 16:56
    she's apparently congresswoman from
  • 16:58
    Democrat for Illinois even heard of her
  • 17:02
    I've never heard of her
  • 17:03
    well she is also the chairperson of the
  • 17:06
    DCCC and she explains what that is in
  • 17:10
    this clip and just listening to her I
  • 17:11
    think there's a lot of room and I think
  • 17:13
    they may be further down the path than
  • 17:15
    the press wants us to know where is the
  • 17:17
    room for a deal well the room for a deal
  • 17:20
    is that there's got to be some
  • 17:22
    give-and-take it's I worked in the
  • 17:23
    private sector my entire career before
  • 17:26
    coming to Congress in fact I was a
  • 17:27
    journalist for 20 I almost cooked almost
  • 17:29
    20 years almost AIDS
  • 17:30
    why don't we know where if she was a
  • 17:32
    journalist for 20 years this is bugging
  • 17:33
    me well look looking and then we're just
  • 17:36
    under 10 years but as you know when
  • 17:39
    you're not on camera when you're working
  • 17:41
    with your producers and your
  • 17:43
    photographers and all of that you know
  • 17:45
    you got to have a little give-and-take
  • 17:46
    and if we are unwilling to do that we
  • 17:50
    will not improve the way this place I'm
  • 17:53
    standing in the US Capitol right now we
  • 17:54
    will not improve
  • 17:56
    the way Congress functions and you know
  • 17:58
    with or up to me I would go into a room
  • 18:00
    I'd lock the door and say we're not
  • 18:01
    going to leash until we open up the
  • 18:03
    government again it is not that hard and
  • 18:06
    I think one of the point worth making
  • 18:07
    the the wall that President Trump has
  • 18:11
    talked about now for many years because
  • 18:13
    this was a defining theme when he was a
  • 18:16
    candidate it is nothing more than a
  • 18:19
    symbol if you look at it from this
  • 18:21
    perspective if we have a partial wall if
  • 18:25
    we have fencing if we have technology
  • 18:28
    used to keep our border safe all of that
  • 18:30
    is fine but it has just become this
  • 18:32
    symbol that the president is not having
  • 18:35
    any give or take when it comes to this
  • 18:38
    five billion dollars so you said there
  • 18:40
    needs to be give-and-take and then you
  • 18:42
    said that you are supportive or at least
  • 18:45
    open to the idea of a partial wall
  • 18:46
    fencing technology is that the give here
  • 18:50
    are you willing to give some additional
  • 18:53
    funding beyond the 1.3 billion for a
  • 18:56
    partial wall fadna I hadn't even heard
  • 18:58
    this 1.3 billion number yet that
  • 19:01
    Schumer's number he said that's what
  • 19:04
    he'd be willing to give for the wall or
  • 19:06
    fencing but none of us for the wall it
  • 19:08
    was for border security now I think or
  • 19:10
    technology well keep in mind I'm not
  • 19:12
    sitting at that table doing the
  • 19:14
    negotiating I mean I'm running the
  • 19:15
    Democratic Congressional Campaign
  • 19:16
    Committee it means I have a seat at the
  • 19:18
    leadership table but you have a vote in
  • 19:19
    Congress and you are a member of
  • 19:21
    Democratic leadership and people are you
  • 19:22
    know you've got four votes for Speaker
  • 19:24
    and I don't mean to diminish that people
  • 19:25
    listen here's what is this four votes
  • 19:27
    for Speaker
  • 19:30
    fifteen members of the House refused to
  • 19:32
    vote for Nancy Pelosi the votes okay got
  • 19:35
    scattered around I got things are you
  • 19:37
    saying that that is where you believe
  • 19:39
    Democrats should give I believe that
  • 19:42
    when we are looking at many issues
  • 19:43
    whether it pertains to rebuilding our
  • 19:46
    country and passing what I hope will end
  • 19:48
    up being a trillion dollar
  • 19:49
    infrastructure package to rebuild our
  • 19:51
    roads or bridges I roads and bridges and
  • 19:53
    water how about that what if we fold it
  • 19:55
    into the infrastructure bill
  • 19:59
    well sure lot of wiggle room with a
  • 20:01
    trillion dollar mark well she's talking
  • 20:04
    to I does she bring that up in
  • 20:05
    relationship to this in rural broadband
  • 20:08
    or whether it has to do with lowering
  • 20:10
    the cost of health care including the
  • 20:12
    exorbitant prices of prescription drugs
  • 20:14
    whatever it is what I'm saying is we can
  • 20:16
    have a starting point that we go in
  • 20:19
    there and we say this is ideally what we
  • 20:20
    would like to see happen but in the end
  • 20:23
    we might have to give or take a little
  • 20:24
    bit it's just the way the world works
  • 20:27
    its way the way our families work I'm a
  • 20:29
    mother of blah blah blah
  • 20:31
    I think there's room there and she's
  • 20:34
    signaling this yeah maybe
  • 20:37
    I'm not saying she's not Pelosi the one
  • 20:41
    who really calls the shots
  • 20:42
    she worked at the Quad Cities times as
  • 20:45
    the nightshift police reporter wow
  • 20:48
    that's a gig and she actually got a
  • 20:50
    master's in journalism from University
  • 20:53
    of Illinois to get the gig
  • 20:55
    yeah well that in those days I'm gonna
  • 20:58
    hold she is but in olden days you'd get
  • 21:00
    you come out of college 57
  • 21:03
    yeah you come out of college and you if
  • 21:06
    you had any journalism chops whether you
  • 21:08
    were the editor of the school paper or
  • 21:10
    you were taking journalism courses you
  • 21:13
    get offered these sorts of gigs around
  • 21:15
    the country when they had real
  • 21:16
    newspapers and they was always starting
  • 21:19
    off as always a good some cop beat you
  • 21:23
    had for the police department and that's
  • 21:24
    it they actually kind of made the the
  • 21:28
    reporters a little more street savvy
  • 21:30
    because they actually know we're out
  • 21:32
    there yeah they they get getting some
  • 21:34
    real information yeah
  • 21:38
    those days are over oh yeah alrighty
  • 21:43
    think we're done with the wall I just
  • 21:44
    thought it was interesting that you know
  • 21:47
    how'd that it just seems like
  • 21:48
    something's something's going on this I
  • 21:50
    did I think we will get to something
  • 21:52
    some better be going on well it has to
  • 21:55
    yeah well they talk about this a little
  • 21:57
    bit on democracy now let me let me give
  • 21:59
    you an example here is a Amy Goodman is
  • 22:02
    gonna talk about they're gonna talk to
  • 22:03
    very detailed information about the wall
  • 22:07
    and some of the things that went on that
  • 22:10
    are going on in the various
  • 22:11
    administrations let's play this this is
  • 22:13
    Amy regarding shutdown as the government
  • 22:17
    shutdown moves into its 14th day with
  • 22:22
    800,000 federal workers either being
  • 22:25
    forced to work without pay or on
  • 22:28
    furlough and they won't be paid we go
  • 22:31
    now to Capitol Hill where we're joined
  • 22:34
    by Democrats what do you mean not true
  • 22:36
    give everybody back pay for being put on
  • 22:38
    furlough that's way they blood of him
  • 22:40
    like going on furlough and then why is
  • 22:42
    she lying to us I'm wondering myself
  • 22:45
    because I think she knows the the
  • 22:47
    reality of it there must be somebody
  • 22:49
    that's that's not gonna get paid I'm not
  • 22:51
    sure what the point of that comment was
  • 22:52
    but and they won't be paid we go now to
  • 22:56
    Capitol Hill where we're joined by
  • 22:58
    Democratic Congress member Judy Chu of
  • 23:00
    California she's the chair of the
  • 23:02

  • 23:57
    Galatians on your swearing in yesterday
  • 24:00
    along with the most diverse Congress and
  • 24:03
    US history your thoughts being in that
  • 24:05
    room and the comparison of the diversity
  • 24:08
    in color religion ethnicity sexual
  • 24:13
    identity on the part of the Democrats
  • 24:15
    versus the Republicans oh it was just so
  • 24:19
    incredibly exciting to be there with the
  • 24:23
    now majority in Congress you could see
  • 24:27
    the stark difference just when you
  • 24:29
    entered the room as the proceeding
  • 24:31
    started and that is on the left side of
  • 24:33
    the room where the Democrat sit there
  • 24:35
    was tremendous diversity we have a
  • 24:38
    record number of women in Congress now
  • 24:41
    there are over a hundred women in
  • 24:43
    Congress but most of them are on the
  • 24:46
    Democratic side but there is also
  • 24:48
    tremendous diversity we have the
  • 24:50
    greatest number of Latinos African
  • 24:53
    Americans and let me also say we have
  • 24:55
    the greatest number of Asian Pacific
  • 24:57
    Islanders elected to Congress now we
  • 25:00
    have gone from 18 to now 20 agen Pacific
  • 25:03
    Islander members of Congress but it is
  • 25:06
    so exciting that we have now the first
  • 25:10
    two Native American women in Congress
  • 25:13
    and the first two Muslim American women
  • 25:17
    in Congress right United Colors of
  • 25:19
    Benetton it's beautiful hey hey where's
  • 25:22
    this from it what are they talking about
  • 25:24
    just sitting there patting yourself on
  • 25:25
    the back yeah there's a bunch of more
  • 25:30
    women these people reelected it's not
  • 25:33
    talking about qualifications or what any
  • 25:35
    of them are any good they haven't even
  • 25:36
    been in office for ten minutes but
  • 25:38
    they're just all well useless know if
  • 25:46
    you look at how the Democratic Party
  • 25:48
    runs and what issues they run on its
  • 25:50
    diversity and they said we're gonna get
  • 25:52
    make it more diverse and they did they
  • 25:54
    didn't say they were going to get anyone
  • 25:55
    right for the job and they may very well
  • 25:57
    be I don't know but they said they were
  • 25:59
    going for diversity they delivered on
  • 26:00
    their promise let's go with part two the
  • 26:04
    first day was to be able to change the
  • 26:09
    rules so that we have great
  • 26:10
    transparency in Congress and it was also
  • 26:13
    to pass bills that would end the
  • 26:16
    government shutdown on the rules issue
  • 26:19
    yes and unfortunately since the last few
  • 26:23
    congresses since Republicans took over
  • 26:24
    we have had a lack of transparency so
  • 26:27
    our whole goal was to change it so that
  • 26:29
    for instance we could have a bill 72
  • 26:32
    hours before it's voted upon so we can
  • 26:35
    actually read it and contemplate yeah
  • 26:38
    we'll hold you to that one don't worry
  • 26:41
    this woman wasn't this Obama's promise
  • 26:45
    when he first became president at all
  • 26:46
    and it's gonna be everything's gonna be
  • 26:48
    on c-span and you can read the bills and
  • 26:51
    all the rest of it yeah that didn't work
  • 26:53
    either
  • 26:53
    that wasn't Nancy Pelosi one says we
  • 26:55
    gotta pass this bill so you can read it
  • 26:57
    to see what it says yes yes that's
  • 26:59
    correct in other words she just fully
  • 27:05
    crapped like the rest of them with this
  • 27:07
    nonsense
  • 27:08
    no no they put out a bill 72 hours in
  • 27:11
    advance before they even bring it to the
  • 27:13
    floor and in fact I'll read from it in a
  • 27:15
    minute so they did that they're working
  • 27:17
    on it they're getting better that we can
  • 27:21
    have an end to these conflict of
  • 27:23
    interests so for instance members of
  • 27:25
    Congress cannot be on corporate boards
  • 27:28
    and also so that we can have greater
  • 27:31
    diversity amongst our members that board
  • 27:40
    thing they're not talking about the real
  • 27:42
    conflict of interest stuff which is a
  • 27:44
    defect that stock trades can do stock
  • 27:47
    trades based on what the legislation is
  • 27:49
    gonna be in advance legally and they
  • 27:52
    have to report it it's only but it's
  • 27:54
    available only in the basement of the
  • 27:56
    Library of Congress not not kidding no
  • 27:59
    cops no copies can be made and leave the
  • 28:02
    premises no electronic equipment you
  • 28:05
    have to bring pencil or a great memory a
  • 28:09
    greater - wait wait so they they make it
  • 28:12
    they lately let that slide but they talk
  • 28:14
    about this board member thing knowing
  • 28:16
    full well that none of these diversity
  • 28:19
    folk or anybody on our boards on
  • 28:23
    boards except maybe some public you know
  • 28:26
    some Soros boards which don't count
  • 28:29
    there tell my corporate boards of
  • 28:31
    money-making companies so Rossum only
  • 28:33
    applies to one half of Congress so they
  • 28:36
    can still be on this on a board of a big
  • 28:39
    NGO well I'm pretty sure that's true I'm
  • 28:43
    not not looking to that that's
  • 28:45
    interesting that's interesting
  • 28:47
    if that can be shown then you can see
  • 28:50
    that this is just a bigoted
  • 28:52
    anti-business kind of thing let's hear
  • 28:54
    the word diverse guys should be on
  • 28:57
    boards of corporations of course not but
  • 29:00
    if you're gonna start limiting things
  • 29:01
    you're better limited evenly yes
  • 29:04
    get some diversity we can have greater
  • 29:07
    diversity amongst our members allowing
  • 29:13
    religious headgear on the board so those
  • 29:16
    were our rules never religious headgear
  • 29:20
    always reminds me of the braces I had
  • 29:22
    with the headgear my hat I hated those
  • 29:25
    things had had wear him to school had to
  • 29:28
    do three notches on the right two
  • 29:29
    notches on the Left that's headgear on
  • 29:32
    the floor so those were our rules
  • 29:34
    packages but the most important thing
  • 29:37
    was that we do not continue the
  • 29:38
    suffering of these federal workers these
  • 29:41
    800,000 federal workers who either will
  • 29:44
    not be paid or will be paid later and do
  • 29:48
    not have a paycheck now you want to hear
  • 29:50
    the bit from the bill that they brought
  • 29:52
    out before they bring it to the floor
  • 29:53
    the 72-hour bill yeah it's from sarbanes
  • 29:57
    put it in yo sarbanes from
  • 29:58
    sarbanes-oxley sarbanes-oxley one of the
  • 30:03
    worst laws in effect ever episode he put
  • 30:07
    out the for the people act of 2019
  • 30:11
    producer Todd caught this and pulled out
  • 30:13
    a couple of things this is to you know
  • 30:17
    more transparency rectify the elections
  • 30:19
    get our elected lecture system in order
  • 30:21
    and a couple of points page 39
  • 30:25
    the voting age shall be lowered to 16
  • 30:28
    makes sense
  • 30:31
    any citizen will be able to request a
  • 30:33
    MyVoice voucher worth $25 so this is a
  • 30:36
    voucher you get to even out money in
  • 30:38
    politics and you can spend that 25 it's
  • 30:41
    federal money you can spend that $25 on
  • 30:44
    any party or individual you want
  • 30:47
    colleges can automatically register
  • 30:49
    students to vote but are not required to
  • 30:52
    ask if they are US citizens according to
  • 30:54
    the bill there's a number of triggers
  • 30:57
    for automatic voter registration
  • 30:59
    non-citizens who are registered to vote
  • 31:01
    cannot be charged with the crime unless
  • 31:02
    they knew they were violating the crime
  • 31:04
    Sosa get out of jail free card there
  • 31:08
    within six months of an election people
  • 31:10
    cannot use the cross state registration
  • 31:12
    database to find people who are
  • 31:13
    registered to vote in more than one
  • 31:15
    state because that's voter suppression
  • 31:20
    that's a Republican tactic you see to
  • 31:23
    find corruption is it is is right-wing
  • 31:26
    craziness oh my god that's a that's
  • 31:30
    unbelievable voting rights will be
  • 31:32
    restored to convicted criminals as long
  • 31:34
    as they are not in jail on Election Day
  • 31:36
    and all states must allow early voting
  • 31:39
    and polling locations must be moved
  • 31:41
    within walking distance of bus stops
  • 31:45
    let's back up
  • 31:48
    this is in that bill that's supposed to
  • 31:50
    yeah the for the people act for the
  • 31:54
    people act
  • 31:57
    it's pretty good right
  • 31:59
    yeah it's a scam as usual yeah slipping
  • 32:03
    one by but right what so what does the
  • 32:06
    media say about this they must have read
  • 32:08
    this over and said this notice these
  • 32:10
    these anomalies uh yeah I have a clip
  • 32:12
    right here if you know what I mean of
  • 32:20
    course they don't say anything about
  • 32:21
    that come on you know the answers it's
  • 32:25
    just it's just shameless thank you thank

    you have more on the diversity diversity
  • 32:50
    buddy got diversity or on the 20/20 no
  • 32:54
    do one we see five again 2020 hold on
  • 32:57
    before we do anything yes
  • 33:02
    so who do we still have running the
  • 33:04
    three B's
  • 33:06
    Beto Biden and bingo who's a third be
  • 33:10
    that oh by Bernie Bernie
  • 33:14
    we have Kamala Harris and I think that
  • 33:17
    CNN has really decided to cut Biden out
  • 33:20
    of the three B's and is and they brought
  • 33:23
    in Sally cone everybody's favorite to uh
  • 33:27
    to take him down and let everyone know
  • 33:29
    that yeah Sally cone besides being a
  • 33:31
    journalist I think she's good
  • 33:33
    although incredibly biased you know I
  • 33:36
    think she has ties to the Democrats that
  • 33:39
    are deeper than the surface may show I
  • 33:41
    always think she has inside info so
  • 33:43
    here's Sally :
  • 33:45
    let's turn the page and I know it's so
  • 33:47
    early but Senator Dianne Feinstein says
  • 33:52
    she would back Joe Biden if he ran in
  • 33:55
    2020 of you guys heard this and not only
  • 33:57
    is it interesting Sally to you that
  • 34:00
    she'd say something like this so early
  • 34:03
    but also just keeping in mind senator
  • 34:05
    Kamala Harris is her fellow California
  • 34:07
    senator what do you think I mean good
  • 34:11
    honor I have to respectfully disagree
  • 34:15
    look when someone says I want to
  • 34:19
    respectfully disagree what do they say
  • 34:22
    that
  • 34:24
    oh well that's a good question to
  • 34:27
    analyze because people say it a lot
  • 34:29
    listen I I just respectfully I disagree
  • 34:31
    I think it's haughty it's I think it has
  • 34:36
    bad connotations I think it means you
  • 34:39
    you think the person is full of shit
  • 34:41
    yeah you don't want to say it like hey
  • 34:44
    you're so stupid you're so wrong I'm
  • 34:47
    gonna tell you how it is I think you're
  • 34:48
    right that's kind of that's kind of what
  • 34:49
    it means another one good on her good on
  • 34:56
    her is that even mean you know I'm
  • 34:59
    hearing having haven't grown up in
  • 35:02
    Europe growing up with the Germanic
  • 35:03
    languages I'm hearing descent and
  • 35:06
    sentence structure certainly between
  • 35:07
    Dutch or German and English everything
  • 35:09
    is reversed so instead of saying what do
  • 35:12
    you say you literally say what say you
  • 35:15
    and I'm hearing this coming up now what
  • 35:17
    say you in something in certain
  • 35:19
    circumstances people use this and to say
  • 35:21
    good on you it's good for y'all you know
  • 35:25
    it's like a Germanic thing that's coming
  • 35:27
    in it's very odd to me where I hear
  • 35:29
    these sentence structures that are
  • 35:30
    different from the traditional English
  • 35:32
    usage
  • 35:36
    good on you good on her good on her if
  • 35:39
    you don't say it with the right intent
  • 35:41
    intonation sounds stupid like oh well
  • 35:43
    good on her yeah that sounds nasty yeah
  • 35:47
    it doesn't sound right
  • 35:49
    I mean good honor have to respectfully
  • 35:55
    disagree look I think it's the prelude
  • 35:57
    to fu has name recognition people like
  • 36:02
    him and in fairness he's the most sort
  • 36:05
    of populist seeming of a long legacy of
  • 36:09
    centrist corporate Democrats right he
  • 36:11
    talked - he's from Scranton he talks
  • 36:13
    about that all the time and so he sort
  • 36:15
    of seemed like the most popular bearing
  • 36:19
    in mind he's from the great banking
  • 36:20
    state of Delaware but but he kind of he
  • 36:23
    earned that reputation but in fairness
  • 36:26
    the country yeah corporate centrist
  • 36:30
    Democrats but certainly in this moment
  • 36:32
    that is so tone-deaf and out of step not
  • 36:36
    only was what the country needs but with
  • 36:38
    what the American people across the
  • 36:40
    aisle what and and it turns out we're a
  • 36:44
    fundamentally more progressive inclusive
  • 36:48
    populist country that wants things like
  • 36:52
    higher taxes on the rich climate change
  • 36:56
    and corporations and big business to be
  • 36:58
    held accountable and we need Democratic
  • 37:00
    candidates who I don't know actually
  • 37:02
    sided with the majority of Americans not
  • 37:04
    to mention the majority of Democrats as
  • 37:06
    opposed to siding with big business in
  • 37:08
    Wall Street
  • 37:09
    Uncle Joe just got shoved in The Wall
  • 37:12
    Street way to go south she had Hillary
  • 37:17
    she's there already - yeah she runs a
  • 37:19
    think-tank that she found it Sally she's
  • 37:22
    only sometimes a commentator
  • 37:26
    only a stooge for the Democrats yeah
  • 37:29
    she's Democrats now she mentioned the
  • 37:32
    higher taxes and I'm gonna bring it
  • 37:34
    right back to what I said earlier
  • 37:36
    AOC who I and I'm sorry have the AOC
  • 37:40
    clip yeah I have it too okay let me see
  • 37:44
    how long has your clip yours is oh you
  • 37:48
    have 142 we're going with your clip your
  • 37:50
    talk about zero carbon emissions no use
  • 37:53
    of fossil fuels within 12 years that is
  • 37:56
    the goal its ambitious yeah I know that
  • 37:59
    posture of everybody happening to drive
  • 38:00
    an electric car it's going to require a
  • 38:04
    lot of rapid change that we don't even
  • 38:07
    conceive as possible right now what is
  • 38:10
    the problem with trying to push our
  • 38:14
    technological capacities to the farthest
  • 38:18
    extent possible this would require
  • 38:19
    though raising taxes there's an element
  • 38:21
    where yeah there people are gonna have
  • 38:23
    to start paying their fair share in
  • 38:25
    taxes tax rate you know you look at our
  • 38:28
    tax rates back in the 60s and when you
  • 38:31
    have a progressive tax rate system your
  • 38:34
    tax rate you know let's say from zero to
  • 38:38
    $75,000 may have been 10% or 15% etc but
  • 38:43
    once you get to like the tippy tops on
  • 38:46
    your 10 millionth dollar
  • 38:48
    sometimes you see tax rates as high as
  • 38:50
    60 or 70% that doesn't mean all 10
  • 38:53
    million dollars or taxed an extremely
  • 38:56
    high rate but it means that as you climb
  • 38:57
    up this ladder you should be
  • 39:00
    contributing more what you are talking
  • 39:03
    about this big picture is a radical
  • 39:05
    agenda compared to the way politics is
  • 39:08
    done right now well I think that it only
  • 39:12
    has ever been radicals that have changed
  • 39:15
    this country Abraham Lincoln was a
  • 39:17
    radical decision to sign the
  • 39:18
    Emancipation Proclamation Franklin
  • 39:21
    Delano Roosevelt made the radical
  • 39:23
    decision to embark on establishing
  • 39:26
    programs like Social Security that is
  • 39:28
    radical do you call yourself a radical
  • 39:30
    yeah you know if that's what radical
  • 39:32
    means call me a radical I really like
  • 39:36
    this girl she is going places I know you
  • 39:38
    think
  • 39:38
    it's to me I don't like her in the least
  • 39:41
    I think she's I do think she's stupid
  • 39:44
    and she's an idealist and a goofball
  • 39:50
    I think she's something of a goofball I
  • 39:51
    just do not see what you see I know what
  • 39:54
    you're thinking did he shoot six shots
  • 39:57
    or only five oh I'm sorry no it's
  • 39:59
    different no I'm going on record as Pro
  • 40:05
    AOC I think she could do things that I
  • 40:07
    like listen here's I have some things to
  • 40:11
    say about this first of all what
  • 40:13
    happened to the actual green New Deal
  • 40:16
    black-on-white her own paper says we're
  • 40:19
    going to print the money
  • 40:19
    I hope we're gonna print the money for
  • 40:21
    this green New Deal which we only have
  • 40:23
    12 years to do really only ten before we
  • 40:26
    die children know it that you ask any
  • 40:28
    child particularly if they just got into
  • 40:31
    college was happening with with climate
  • 40:32
    change we're gonna die
  • 40:33
    so let's just bear that in mind children
  • 40:36
    believe this she believes this I think I
  • 40:38
    think so she said it was going to be
  • 40:41
    done by printing up money just the way
  • 40:43
    we did the bailout in 2008 so she's
  • 40:45
    changed
  • 40:45
    this is the question pooper should have
  • 40:47
    asked instead she brings up a
  • 40:50
    progressive tax system which we've had
  • 40:52
    all my life and yes is even today if you
  • 40:56
    make X amount you pay only so much over
  • 40:58
    the first $25,000 50,000
  • 41:02
    and you get into the tippy-top as she
  • 41:04
    calls it at iffy job which is Scott
  • 41:07
    Adams would say persuasive gets into the
  • 41:10
    tippy-top
  • 41:11
    and that's where you may wind up paying
  • 41:13
    more and I went back and I looked
  • 41:15
    throughout the 50s the 60s and the 70s
  • 41:17
    up until 1981 the tippy top tax rate in
  • 41:21
    United States was over 70% Tesla it was
  • 41:25
    it's not it's not crazy but go back into
  • 41:30
    that era and the tippy top top tax rate
  • 41:33
    at 71 percent did exist but there were a
  • 41:37
    million ways to lower your tax liability
  • 41:41
    through all kinds of R&D deals and
  • 41:44
    there's certain kinds of investments and
  • 41:46
    write-offs this way and write-offs that
  • 41:48
    way and very few people that made that
  • 41:51
    kind of money
  • 41:52
    they made the 10 million plus a year
  • 41:54
    ever paid those tax rates because they
  • 41:56
    had been putting the money here and
  • 41:59
    putting the money there these were
  • 41:59
    called the loopholes that were closed
  • 42:01
    and once they started closing the
  • 42:03
    loopholes and they had to start lowering
  • 42:05
    the tax rates because it was a it was a
  • 42:07
    one to one ratio so this is really
  • 42:11
    misconstrued this is a specious
  • 42:15
    commentary that she's making it's
  • 42:17
    bullshit that may be true I'd the only
  • 42:23
    thing I'm saying is it's not crazy to
  • 42:26
    have that upper tax rate in a
  • 42:28
    progressive system and people shouldn't
  • 42:30
    immediately be uh however a more
  • 42:35
    importantly if that's all it would take
  • 42:37
    to get the green New Deal going to save
  • 42:40
    our lives
  • 42:41
    I expect every person who is a
  • 42:44
    democratic voter or a democratic
  • 42:46
    operative or politician to agree to this
  • 42:49
    idea to save the world
  • 42:54
    I bet we won't but it's not it's I'd
  • 42:57
    like people like Nancy Pelosi and the
  • 43:01
    real movers and shakers in the party buy
  • 43:05
    into any of the we're all gonna die
  • 43:08
    nonsense no but of course but that's how
  • 43:11
    I can make my point if they don't buy
  • 43:13
    into it if they don't say hey you know
  • 43:15
    okay make it 60% make it an even 50 what
  • 43:19
    whatever you gonna do that's the way we
  • 43:22
    typically do things with raising money
  • 43:23
    if it truly is the most important thing
  • 43:26
    in the world because we're all going to
  • 43:28
    die then they should all be pushing for
  • 43:30
    it they won't because it's not true
  • 43:32
    we're not going to die my point is about
  • 43:35
    the science of climate change and the
  • 43:37
    hood that's been pulled over everybody's
  • 43:39
    eyes
  • 43:41
    so how'd everybody know but the people
  • 43:43
    who are advocating for those suckers the
  • 43:45
    people who are advocating for the we're
  • 43:47
    all gonna die climate change don't deny
  • 43:49
    Sciences in they should be all in on at
  • 43:52
    least this idea I agree and I think a
  • 43:54
    lot of them are we'll see I bet not a
  • 43:59
    single one of them supports this idea
  • 44:02
    not a single one a single one of who is
  • 44:05
    at Congress members yes the Democrats
  • 44:08
    who say we're going to die from climate
  • 44:09
    change them yes oh well maybe by the way
  • 44:14
    this think there's more than a single I
  • 44:15
    think there's a few this was all
  • 44:17
    predicted the newbies that just came in
  • 44:18
    did you see the the article that now you
  • 44:21
    know the orbit of the the earth is
  • 44:23
    changing slightly and therefore and
  • 44:27
    that's not therefore climate change you
  • 44:29
    know it it may end by itself or not oh
  • 44:31
    they're looking for the out to look for
  • 44:33
    the exit strategy for the bullish listen
  • 44:36
    so this this actually appeared in 1961
  • 44:41
    November 17th in an episode of The
  • 44:44
    Twilight Zone
  • 44:46
    the word that mrs. Bronson is unable to
  • 44:48
    put into the hot still sudden air is
  • 44:50
    doomed because the people you've just
  • 44:52
    seen have been handed a death sentence
  • 44:54
    one month ago the earth suddenly changed
  • 44:56
    its elliptical orbit and in doing so
  • 44:58
    began to follow a path which gradually
  • 45:00
    moment by moment day by day took it
  • 45:02
    closer to the Sun
  • 45:04
    and all of man's little devices to stir
  • 45:06
    up the air and now no longer luxuries
  • 45:08
    they happen to be pitiful and panicky
  • 45:10
    keys to survival the time is 5 minutes
  • 45:13
    to 12 midnight there is no more darkness
  • 45:16
    the place is New York City and this is
  • 45:18
    the eve of the end because even at
  • 45:20
    midnight it's High Noon
  • 45:22
    the hottest day in history and you're
  • 45:25
    about to spend it in the twilight zone
  • 45:28
    so that's the setup but in the show
  • 45:30
    itself this is what happens there was a
  • 45:33
    scientist on the radio this morning he
  • 45:35
    was trying to explain what happened how
  • 45:37
    the earth had changed its orbit and was
  • 45:39
    starting to move away from the Sun and
  • 45:41
    that was in 1 2 or maybe 3 weeks at the
  • 45:44
    most
  • 45:44
    there wouldn't be any more Sun we'd all
  • 45:47
    freeze nothing ever changes remember
  • 45:55
    that episode it's pretty funny you
  • 45:57
    remember oh that's great let's go back
  • 45:59
    to 1988 for the upcoming election hold
  • 46:02
    on 1988 hello John oh yeah I was having
  • 46:09
    trouble with my Segway obvious yes yes
  • 46:11
    it ran off a hill gore is running he's
  • 46:16
    one of the main candidates this is the
  • 46:19
    the election against the George HW Bush
  • 46:23
    the first time he after right after
  • 46:24
    Reagan's eight years and so we have a
  • 46:27
    few things here including let's just
  • 46:30
    play these two gore clips from 1988 just
  • 46:33
    pre-election so just before the election
  • 46:35
    when he was one of the five candidates
  • 46:37
    Dukakis won this thing he didn't but he
  • 46:40
    had a few things to say that he's kind
  • 46:41
    of stuck with but I see that he's kind
  • 46:43
    of edited down his complaints let's
  • 46:46
    start with gore free on the other five
  • 46:50
    candidates in the race and later in the
  • 46:53
    campaign I'll be doing the same thing on
  • 46:55
    on domestication it's a cool way to
  • 46:57
    different you've heard these guys and we
  • 46:59
    all have for about six months you know
  • 47:00
    what you believe for the last ten years
  • 47:01
    so where do you think the differences
  • 47:03
    are gonna be education social well I
  • 47:05
    think there gonna be some differences
  • 47:07
    in education in in in this in
  • 47:15
    Environmental Protection and in a number
  • 47:19
    of other issue areas I'm the only
  • 47:21
    candidate to talking about the need for
  • 47:24
    a completely new approach to
  • 47:26
    environmental protection as an example
  • 47:29
    I'm chairman of the largest
  • 47:30
    environmental protection group in the
  • 47:32
    Congress I chaired the first hearings
  • 47:35
    ever held on the problem of hazardous
  • 47:37
    chemical waste and pollution of
  • 47:40
    groundwater some ten years ago I was one
  • 47:43
    of the principal authors of the
  • 47:46
    Superfund law I've been active in issues
  • 47:50
    from clean air and clean water to
  • 47:51
    protection of the upper atmosphere and
  • 47:53
    the rain forests and ocean pollution
  • 47:56
    management of public lands and the
  • 48:00
    positions I've articulated I'll give you
  • 48:03
    an example did you see at any point
  • 48:05
    mentioned that he invented the internet
  • 48:07
    the internet later oh when I announced
  • 48:12
    my candidacy I talked about the threat
  • 48:15
    to the ozone layer among many many other
  • 48:18
    issues and some of the other campaigns
  • 48:21
    said sort of hooted at that and said
  • 48:25
    this is really a kind of an unusual
  • 48:29
    issue that the voters will not respond
  • 48:32
    to I find a tremendous response from the
  • 48:35
    voters I find Americans all over this
  • 48:38
    country actively concerned about the
  • 48:42
    impact of our civilization on the global
  • 48:44
    environment and the next president must
  • 48:47
    not only understand that impact but must
  • 48:50
    be prepared to offer strong innovative
  • 48:53
    leadership nationally and
  • 48:55
    internationally to stop that damage the
  • 48:58
    recent treaty incidentally on the ozone
  • 49:02
    depletion accomplishes a 35% reduction
  • 49:06
    in in in the production of these
  • 49:10
    chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons or
  • 49:13
    CFCs and yet the
  • 49:15
    evidence shows that there must be an 85%
  • 49:19
    reduction just to stabilize the amount
  • 49:22
    of damage being done in other words
  • 49:25
    under this treaty the damage will not
  • 49:27
    only continue it will accelerate fairly
  • 49:30
    dramatically throughout the balance of
  • 49:31
    this century that's unacceptable now
  • 49:34
    there may be some market developments
  • 49:36
    that have helped us deal with the
  • 49:38
    problem in the treaty may accelerate
  • 49:40
    those market trends
  • 49:42
    well this is his whole thesis word for
  • 49:46
    been running for anything is to scare
  • 49:48
    the crap out of the public have these
  • 49:50
    assertions like we would like by the
  • 49:52
    year 2000 apparently according to him
  • 49:54
    there were the whole was gonna get
  • 49:55
    bigger when it got smaller and all this
  • 49:58
    sort of thing but the next one which is
  • 50:00
    the second clip has an assertion with an
  • 50:02
    actual time and date no date that it
  • 50:06
    should be noted yes okay yeah because
  • 50:10
    it's it's he says it and I do the
  • 50:13
    calculation and I didn't happen but but
  • 50:16
    there are many other challenges climate
  • 50:18
    change is an issue that again wow this
  • 50:20
    is is out in front of the domestic
  • 50:23
    consensus on what the agenda of the next
  • 50:26
    president ought to be but the next
  • 50:28
    president needs to provide leadership
  • 50:30
    there as well destruction of the
  • 50:32
    rainforests we're losing rainforests in
  • 50:34
    the world today at at the rate of one
  • 50:37
    Tennessee's worth every year an amount
  • 50:40
    of land equivalent to the size of the
  • 50:43
    state of Tennessee every single year by
  • 50:44
    the year 2010 it'll all be gone it's
  • 50:51
    gone gone it's gone is it gone
  • 50:54
    did you check yeah I did she's gone it's
  • 50:57
    not gone mine looks as if there's not
  • 51:00
    even close to being gone just they you
  • 51:03
    can look at you know rain forests and
  • 51:06
    the Wikipedian you can see them all
  • 51:08
    they're still there it's just not done
  • 51:09
    but going to him it's not ever gonna be
  • 51:11
    gone by 2010 alright let's come back a
  • 51:20
    couple of things we've talked about that
  • 51:21
    are coming that are coming true
  • 51:25
    yes that are panning out a while back we
  • 51:28
    identified that the excessive use of
  • 51:31
    cuss words amongst leftist liberals
  • 51:34
    Democrats was increasing
  • 51:38
    and this increased signal something to
  • 51:40
    me it signaled a severe frustration and
  • 51:43
    I said it's only going to get worse
  • 51:45
    you're hearing it on podcast everywhere
  • 51:47
    people who would never use any kind of
  • 51:49
    profanity are using the f-word
  • 51:52
    excessively now I have Tourette's so you
  • 51:54
    got to give me a little slack you
  • 51:56
    actually give you some you use the S
  • 51:59
    word today you rarely even do that now
  • 52:01
    they're saying that was the BS word I'm
  • 52:03
    not even saying that you're a leftist
  • 52:05
    but it came it came true I mean it is
  • 52:08
    they are this is a break in the
  • 52:10
    psychology in the psyche of people who
  • 52:14
    typically are left but who hate Trump
  • 52:17
    people love you you one bullies don't
  • 52:24
    win baby they talk because we're gonna
  • 52:26
    go in there and impeach the motherfucker
  • 52:37
    this is just getting worse this was an
  • 52:41
    example but I think a lot of it has to
  • 52:43
    do with education to people that are
  • 52:45
    typical truck drivers who wouldn't
  • 52:47
    really know this woman's not a truck
  • 52:51
    driver you Larry that's big enough to
  • 52:52
    handle just not using F what this
  • 52:56
    woman's not a truck driver and by the
  • 52:57
    way truck drivers aren't stupid they
  • 52:59
    have vocabulary no but they don't date a
  • 53:01
    lot of truck drivers getting just a
  • 53:03
    milieu I'm sorry okay he was all right
  • 53:05
    that's more fair yes the milieu of truck
  • 53:07
    have certain working classes is involves
  • 53:11
    a lot of cussing the this woman to me is
  • 53:16
    this is a important especially the way
  • 53:21
    it was handled this is an important
  • 53:22
    situation because this can't be
  • 53:26
    tolerated by Nancy Pelosi exactly she
  • 53:30
    and if she can't control these new
  • 53:31
    people that are coming in there she's
  • 53:33
    gonna have to take him one by one she's
  • 53:36
    gonna have a mess on her hands I feel a
  • 53:39
    dirt I'm sorry I think I think it's
  • 53:41
    already done they brought in all the
  • 53:43
    diversity and that's the mess
  • 53:45
    yet diversity is the mess yeah whether
  • 53:48
    Nancy can organize it at her age not to
  • 53:52
    be an ageist an already insulted our
  • 53:55
    truck drivers I don't think she can do
  • 53:59
    it I think the whole Democrat party is
  • 54:00
    gonna fall apart it's gonna be it's
  • 54:02
    gonna be an embarrassment as the those
  • 54:04
    key sorts of things that that woman did
  • 54:05
    she's the new she's a Muslim by the way
  • 54:08
    mm-hmm
  • 54:09
    from Michigan I think she's the Michigan
  • 54:12
    woman Shh that is going to really turn
  • 54:15
    off the American public insofar as
  • 54:18
    Democrats are concerned I agree you're
  • 54:21
    right I think it is signaling something
  • 54:22
    that's a much bigger problem totally
  • 54:26
    agree
  • 54:27
    I have a clip well here it is this is
  • 54:32
    diversity and Pelosi regains gavel this
  • 54:36
    up from Democracy Now that discusses a
  • 54:38
    little bit of this incoming members of
  • 54:40
    the hundred sixteenth Congress made
  • 54:42
    history Thursday is the most diverse
  • 54:44
    group of lawmakers ever sworn in over a
  • 54:48
    hundred women now serve in the house
  • 54:50
    along with the most LGBTQ black and
  • 54:53
    Latino members in history meanwhile
  • 54:56
    Democratic Congress member Nancy Pelosi
  • 54:58
    of California was officially elected
  • 55:00
    Speaker of the House again regaining the
  • 55:03
    gavel she lost after the 2010 midterm
  • 55:06
    elections brought eight years of
  • 55:08
    Republican control to the house nation
  • 55:11
    is an historic moment two months ago the
  • 55:14
    American people spoke and demanded a new
  • 55:17
    dawn upon the beauty of our Constitution
  • 55:21
    our system of checks and balances that
  • 55:24
    protects our democracy
  • 55:26
    remembering that the legislative branch
  • 55:29
    is article 1 the first branch of
  • 55:32
    government co-equal to the presidency 15
  • 55:38
    Democrats including some freshman
  • 55:40
    lawmakers defected against Pelosi
  • 55:42
    speakership either voting for an
  • 55:44
    alternative candidate or simply voting
  • 55:46
    present as a first order of business
  • 55:48
    house Speaker Pelosi and House
  • 55:50
    Democratic leaders sought to end the
  • 55:52
    partial government shutdown passing a
  • 55:54
    package of spending bills that would
  • 55:56
    reopen the federal government without
  • 55:58
    meeting Trump's demand for five billion
  • 56:00
    dollars for expanding the wall on the
  • 56:02
    us-mexico border
  • 56:07
    so Pelosi's got this she has some
  • 56:09
    defectors which is she punished those 15
  • 56:13
    but she's also gonna punish the few that
  • 56:15
    threatened to not vote for it but did
  • 56:20
    they voted for anyway but they're
  • 56:22
    sterile marked all beyond the you know
  • 56:24
    the barbers committee for sewage
  • 56:26
    treatment and marked and these were some
  • 56:29
    of the words you know farm animals she
  • 56:32
    was that she was also kind of washing
  • 56:35
    her words her bitch like I think she's
  • 56:37
    got denture sound like she does thank
  • 56:42
    you for your refit befitting yes
  • 56:51
    retooling maybe I got a double up on you
  • 56:54
    listen to tell me if you can spot the
  • 56:55
    aim the ami hey this is actually a
  • 56:57
    double flub okay see if you can spot
  • 57:00
    both of them this is about the Google
  • 57:01
    story where you know Google apparently
  • 57:03
    is dodging taxes big shocker no but
  • 57:07
    listen the Seabees find the two double
  • 57:10
    flubs and they're not necessarily
  • 57:12
    mispronouncing things it's what she says
  • 57:15
    newly revealed tax filings show Google
  • 57:17
    shifted 23 billion dollars to accounts
  • 57:20
    in Bermuda in 2017 as part of a complex
  • 57:23
    tax avoidance scheme that saved the tech
  • 57:25
    giant billions of dollars in revenue the
  • 57:28
    scheme involved funneling money through
  • 57:29
    Google Ireland holdings and a Dutch
  • 57:32
    shell company based in Bermuda where
  • 57:34
    corporations pay no income tax the
  • 57:37
    scheme known as the double Irish Dutch
  • 57:38
    sandwich is legal although Ireland's
  • 57:41
    government has said it will close a
  • 57:42
    loophole allowing the arrangement in
  • 57:44
    2020 okay first of all is the double
  • 57:47
    dutch is never a double Irish that's
  • 57:50
    just stupidity and I think she also said
  • 57:52
    it would save the millions in revenue
  • 57:54
    which is not yes it was mistake number
  • 57:56
    one yeah it's not true billions in taxes
  • 57:59
    yes but not on revenues revenues or
  • 58:02
    whatever we revenues our revenues it
  • 58:04
    doesn't save you any revenue there's a
  • 58:05
    Dutch just that wrong the Dutch just
  • 58:07
    called they want their their other part
  • 58:09
    back don't play the second one in there
  • 58:12
    and I forget oh really besides that
  • 58:14
    there's one o newly revealed tax filings
  • 58:16
    show Google shifted 23 billion dollars
  • 58:19
    to accounts and
  • 58:19
    muda in 2017 as part of a complex tax
  • 58:23
    avoidance scheme that saved the tech
  • 58:25
    giant billions of dollars in revenue the
  • 58:27
    scheme involved funneling money through
  • 58:29
    Google Ireland holdings and a Dutch
  • 58:31
    shell company based in Bermuda where
  • 58:34
    corporations pay no income tax the
  • 58:36
    scheme known as the double Irish Dutch
  • 58:38
    sandwich is legal although Ireland's
  • 58:40
    government has said it will close a
  • 58:42
    loophole allowing the arrangement in
  • 58:44
    2020 allowing the arrangement
  • 58:47
    yeah weird now I just can't lift out the
  • 58:51
    second one okay anyway I have something
  • 58:55
    much I have something much more
  • 58:56
    important from the future we are huh of
  • 59:00
    course wherever Ebola shows up we always
  • 59:03
    expect the US military to follow now you
  • 59:07
    wouldn't know it from the American news
  • 59:09
    or if you dare I say even any news in
  • 59:12
    the Western in the Western world now but
  • 59:15
    if we go to Africa today the United
  • 59:18
    States has deployed so just to Kabul on
  • 59:20
    in anticipation of possible violent
  • 59:23
    demonstrations that Democratic Republic
  • 59:25
    of Congo after its presidential election
  • 59:27
    u.s. president Donald Trump told
  • 59:29
    Congress on Friday the first batch of
  • 59:32
    about 80 military personnel arrived in
  • 59:35
    Gabon on Wednesday their mission will be
  • 59:38
    to protect US citizens and diplomatic
  • 59:40
    facilities should avail as break out in
  • 59:43
    DLCs capital Kinshasa Trump said
  • 59:46
    additional forces may be deployed to
  • 59:49
    Gabon
  • 59:50
    if necessary no notice no mention of
  • 59:52
    Ebola is completely off the map we don't
  • 59:54
    care we got what we needed a we get them
  • 59:56
    in one way or the other troops in the
  • 1:00:00
    DRC
  • 1:00:01
    just a matter of time but how'd you get
  • 1:00:04
    dead that was a good clip oh it well
  • 1:00:07
    Reuters actually reported on it they did
  • 1:00:09
    do a news release about the US troops
  • 1:00:13
    being deployed but it wasn't it was not
  • 1:00:15
    mention I need I was looking for a clip
  • 1:00:17
    and this is all I could find I found a
  • 1:00:18
    million clips with some shit music and
  • 1:00:21
    titles you know those those are the
  • 1:00:23
    worst
  • 1:00:23
    I'll go assemble pieces of crap you're
  • 1:00:26
    like oh I got a cliff no I don't so yeah
  • 1:00:29
    and then I just went back to the well
  • 1:00:31
    off the riccati fact at the mainstream
  • 1:00:34
    news media including the CNN and MSNBC s
  • 1:00:37
    of the world spent all this time about
  • 1:00:40
    this briefing the definition of briefing
  • 1:00:42
    instead of some idealist stories like
  • 1:00:45
    this just slide who cares that's why
  • 1:00:48
    we're going to be great this year
  • 1:00:50
    what you think it's gonna get worse oh
  • 1:00:52
    the the the mainstream news CNN MSNBC
  • 1:00:55
    Fox all three of them are going to do
  • 1:00:58
    20/20 all day all night long it will be
  • 1:01:01
    nothing else that it's decided that
  • 1:01:05
    they're doing it it's like the mh17 it's
  • 1:01:07
    they're just gonna go it's only you know

  • 1:07:17
    relative it's a human resource number
  • 1:07:19
    one
  • 1:07:21
    you give it a shot so this is so Jim's
  • 1:07:25
    human resource number one is a World Cup

  • 1:08:21
    think for relatives and in looking at it
  • 1:08:24
    from the jobs perspective I do think
  • 1:08:27
    it's it's possible that that this is on
  • 1:08:29
    the up-and-up you do think I do think
  • 1:08:41
    further humiliating me oh come on it's
  • 1:08:44

    you've got Karma pretty much okay all
  • 1:09:41
    right well this is our value for value
  • 1:09:44
    system and the way and we make it work
  • 1:09:46
    in a number of ways first of all is we
  • 1:09:48
    know how the the network cannot be
  • 1:09:50
    monetized ads doesn't work that's Laura
  • 1:09:53
    Ingram how it works having ads if you
  • 1:09:55
    want to say whatever you want to say
  • 1:09:57
    yeah
  • 1:09:58
    her radio show she really got kicked off
  • 1:10:00
    because of advertiser pressure yeah I
  • 1:10:04
    think she's on one of the networks that
  • 1:10:06
    you can't monetize but she was on one of
  • 1:10:09
    them well know that if that is a
  • 1:10:10
    monetized network because that's a
  • 1:10:12
    closed loop yeah well you know to get
  • 1:10:16
    kicked off yeah that's exactly it the
  • 1:10:18
    Internet is what I like about this is
  • 1:10:20
    what I enjoy about D I I kind of enjoy
  • 1:10:23
    watching these these happens these
  • 1:10:25
    things happening because it's like oh
  • 1:10:28
    yeah good support from your you know you
  • 1:10:32
    you've been there you've been making the
  • 1:10:34
    network money because they're not
  • 1:10:35
    putting you up for free and people like
  • 1:10:37
    your show some people I guess I don't
  • 1:10:39
    know I've always found it should it be
  • 1:10:40
    not quite as I like your TV shows better
  • 1:10:43
    but she's making money for me this is
  • 1:10:46
    just a little cry little there's one
  • 1:10:49
    little complaints a couple of the
  • 1:10:50
    advertisers bailout and you take her out
  • 1:10:53
    you throw her out in the baby with the
  • 1:10:54
    bathwater
  • 1:10:55
    you just get boost give or kick around
  • 1:10:58
    on her but she bouncing on her on her
  • 1:11:00
    butt right at the studios I know what
  • 1:11:02
    kind of operations are these my name is
  • 1:11:05
    you can operate for their people
  • 1:11:06
    now of course why would they they're
  • 1:11:08
    money-making operations oh no way I
  • 1:11:11
    do it either she'd be gone in a
  • 1:11:12
    heartbeat if I was running the place
  • 1:11:13
    well you're a heartless no that's your
  • 1:11:16
    job as a corporation oh it's not yes it
  • 1:11:20
    is
  • 1:11:20
    it doesn't have to be K all righty then
  • 1:11:24
    how many corporations have you run
  • 1:11:27
    I've actually run a couple but they're
  • 1:11:29
    all like me and man me me as I reviewed
  • 1:11:32
    I've run a public company you don't care
  • 1:11:35
    I didn't like the job very much I'll be
  • 1:11:37
    honest but you don't care it's just you
  • 1:11:40
    can't are plenty of CEOs of big
  • 1:11:42
    corporations who do care okay I know in
  • 1:11:47
    the information business in the you got
  • 1:11:52
    the platform from PC Magazine over one
  • 1:11:55
    article in your 35 year history would
  • 1:11:58
    that I agree with I know their word era
  • 1:12:00
    douchebags for doing that but but let me
  • 1:12:02
    give you an example of how the
  • 1:12:03
    newspapers used to be run you start
  • 1:12:05
    attacking some guy and threatening the
  • 1:12:07
    newspaper the disfavored go after it's
  • 1:12:09
    not an it's not a newspaper this is an
  • 1:12:12
    information outlet and it could go after
  • 1:12:13
    the advertisers that's what Limbaugh has
  • 1:12:15
    been doing every time somebody threatens
  • 1:12:17
    to pull advertiser from Limbaugh he
  • 1:12:20
    tells us his census ditto heads out to
  • 1:12:23
    make their lives miserable that's what
  • 1:12:24
    you do there's a difference between Rush
  • 1:12:28
    Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham but here's
  • 1:12:33
    what I wanted to point out besides all
  • 1:12:35
    that is that we we recognized early on
  • 1:12:40
    the only way to pull this model off is
  • 1:12:43
    to open up two things one donation
  • 1:12:46
    amounts make them people can personalize
  • 1:12:49
    them and also it's the value you
  • 1:12:51
    determine it's like if if we're worst
  • 1:12:52
    five bucks worth 5 bucks fine this is
  • 1:12:54
    perfect doesn't matter so we left that
  • 1:12:57
    open we didn't we didn't say you have to
  • 1:12:59
    do this or have to do that whatever you
  • 1:13:00
    think is valuable second thing we do
  • 1:13:03
    everything ourselves there isn't you
  • 1:13:05
    cannot have producers that you that you
  • 1:13:08
    hire and put on a payroll because it
  • 1:13:10
    just there's not enough money in in the
  • 1:13:12
    value Network I don't think it is for
  • 1:13:14
    any system really and I'm always stunned
  • 1:13:16
    by the podcasts that have maybe three
  • 1:13:19
    people taking part and credit a credit
  • 1:13:22
    roll guy on the board a producer a
  • 1:13:27
    Booker I mean they maybe have six seven
  • 1:13:29
    people working there and it's like that
  • 1:13:31
    is like five or six too many so the
  • 1:13:36
    first one of the first things we did is
  • 1:13:37
    or early on as we said our audience are
  • 1:13:41
    not listener
  • 1:13:41
    they're not slubs just sitting around
  • 1:13:43
    they know stuff we figured it out pretty
  • 1:13:46
    quickly as we got every three-letter
  • 1:13:48
    agency cherlene in in the United States
