  • 2:11
    the yeah I'm sure the
  • 2:12
    yeah I'm complaining about the
  • 2:14
    interfacing I remember when I had kept
  • 2:16
    my legacy and you were on the new one
  • 2:19
    cuz you had to be yeah and you're
  • 2:20
    moaning and groaning I don't see this I
  • 2:22
    don't see that I don't see this I don't
  • 2:24
    see that I'm looking hey I see all these
  • 2:26
    things I got a little monitor for the
  • 2:29
    feed and all the boob how's it working
  • 2:31
    for the Noldor your tutor monitor I get
  • 2:34
    the jitter welcome to the club pal
  • 2:38
    welcome to the club where everything is
  • 2:40
    obfuscated you don't need to know anyway
  • 2:45
    about this jitter yeah what is Jiri even
  • 2:48
    mean in a digital context let's not get
  • 2:50
    started on this it's really because you
  • 2:53
    know what 5g will save us all it's gonna
  • 2:55
    remove jitter once I got a 5g report for
  • 3:00
    later no good yeah but first Amber
  • 3:04
    during the early days of the CD round
  • 3:06
    there are some scammers or I think there
  • 3:08
    was just naive dummies and that and the
  • 3:10
    cd-rom was the digital medium and they
  • 3:12
    and they sold these little little
  • 3:14
    attachments as little like a little lead
  • 3:16
    weight you can put on top of the disc
  • 3:18
    after you install it and it would reduce
  • 3:21
    Wow
  • 3:23
    not the cd-rom this was just the CD yeah
  • 3:28
    that's right I meant to see it first the
  • 3:29
    early audio CDs yes it would reduce Wow
  • 3:32
    and flutter
  • 3:33
    I remember this are you talking about
  • 3:38
    flutter is a specific problem with tape
  • 3:41
    mechanisms in 1982 three I want to say
  • 3:46
    or maybe four I just started Veronica
  • 3:49
    broadcasting and we were the new guys on
  • 3:51
    the block and we like hey you know this
  • 3:53
    these CDs and the Philips of course was
  • 3:55
    leading in that and they had I think
  • 3:58
    there was two CDs it was Mark Knopfler
  • 4:03
    dire straits and was one other but you
  • 4:06
    know both phonogram act and we hooked it
  • 4:09
    up to the to the national broadcast
  • 4:11
    network you know to the big towers and
  • 4:13
    we started must have been a dire straits
  • 4:16
    track but the dynamics were so large at
  • 4:20
    the time it actually blew out the
  • 4:21
    transmitters the whole network was dead
  • 4:24
    the whole country particularly brother
  • 4:29
    brother in arms it wasn't brother in
  • 4:31
    arms
  • 4:32
    it was either actually at first was the
  • 4:34
    one that's got the MTV thing in there
  • 4:37
    but they say the lyrics you owe money
  • 4:39
    for nothing yeah maybe it wasn't for
  • 4:41
    nothing yeah you're right
  • 4:42
    money for nothing and man when you play
  • 4:44
    the first time I had money for my
  • 4:46
    nothing on any stereo sight
  • 4:48
    cuz they didn't I don't know what they
  • 4:50
    did then pump the dynamic range to what
  • 4:53
    it was but it was a Norma he started off
  • 4:56
    with is very low no sound at all cuz
  • 4:59
    there's no surface noise so there's no
  • 5:01
    Wow and flutter man
  • 5:03
    yeah there's no Wow and flutter was I
  • 5:05
    think Wow and flutter was something from
  • 5:07
    from the turntable days as well it was
  • 5:09
    not it well it was mostly for tape but
  • 5:12
    yeah I think you can get Wow you can get
  • 5:14
    Wow and flutter on it turned him like I
  • 5:16
    got Wow and flutter right here you know
  • 5:18
    right in the stomach anyway this was a
  • 5:21
    fun weekend there was a problem and
  • 5:25
    resolution within two days in between
  • 5:27
    two shows it was the most fascinating
  • 5:32
    yes of course buzz I have a compa lodge
  • 5:37
    I have a bunch of stuff that's your
  • 5:39
    account balázs yes here's a Kampala
  • 5:41
    which will start with the breaking
  • 5:44
    report from BuzzFeed and will well
  • 5:47
    you'll see where it is breaking news
  • 5:48
    we're following breaking news on what
  • 5:50
    may be the most damning allegations yet
  • 5:52
    against President Trump that's fueling
  • 5:54
    new talk of impeachment another night
  • 5:56
    another bombshell a potentially damaging
  • 5:59
    new report from BuzzFeed this is
  • 6:01
    BuzzFeed reporting game-changing reports
  • 6:03
    BuzzFeed news is reporting the president
  • 6:06
    personally instructed his former lawyer
  • 6:08
    Michael Cohen to lie to Congress he
  • 6:10
    should be impeached immediately he
  • 6:12
    foresees I think impeachment coming this
  • 6:14
    is a completely impeachable of
  • 6:16
    time's impeachment you should be
  • 6:19
    impeached
  • 6:19
    that is impeachable president Trump must
  • 6:22
    either resign or be impeached this was
  • 6:25
    like the Titanic coming at the iceberg
  • 6:30
    counsel Robert Muller's office is
  • 6:32
    disputing they just come out with a
  • 6:36
    statement I want to read it to you
  • 6:37
    responding to BuzzFeed saying BuzzFeed's
  • 6:40
    description of specific statements to
  • 6:42
    the special counsels office and
  • 6:43
    characterization of documents and
  • 6:45
    testimony obtained by this office
  • 6:47
    regarding Michael Cohen's congressional
  • 6:49
    testimony are not accurate and that's
  • 6:51
    where we started to pick a port apart
  • 6:53
    words to an infinite degree which was
  • 6:55
    funny and I'm sure you have some
  • 6:57
    examples of that Oh unbelievable I mean
  • 7:00
    the only guy the funny thing was is on
  • 7:03
    PBS news hour they did have Brooks they
  • 7:09
    didn't have shields wasn't there some
  • 7:10
    woman from Washington jerk The Wall
  • 7:12
    Street Journal who was more than happy
  • 7:14
    to to be she's hoping to God that
  • 7:16
    there's a tape to prove I mean I don't
  • 7:18
    know why journalists are so biased to
  • 7:20
    the point where they're hoping the guy
  • 7:22
    gets impeached but okay this is the way
  • 7:25
    it goes but Brooks actually said well we
  • 7:27
    don't know that it's true and he there's
  • 7:29
    only one source and he's actually hemmed
  • 7:31
    in hard it wasn't like us like he could
  • 7:35
    have gone even further and said well I
  • 7:37
    want to see some more documentation this
  • 7:38
    one BuzzFeed whose BuzzFeed I mean some
  • 7:42
    I think it's a really random news
  • 7:45
    gathering operation now BuzzFeed is
  • 7:47
    always cats well it's been a click farm
  • 7:51
    type operation but they've they've
  • 7:54
    wildly successful I know someone who
  • 7:56
    works there and builds out their new
  • 7:58
    offices and they got they're doing very
  • 8:00
    well but it's yeah it's not really based
  • 8:02
    on most of their success is not really
  • 8:04
    hard journalists ya know it's cat videos
  • 8:09
    it's a typical click and you get ten ads
  • 8:12
    and you saw the ten different versions
  • 8:13
    of Megan Markel's belly stuff from time
  • 8:16
    to time it's fun stuff from time to time
  • 8:19
    it's not a it's not even when Brooks
  • 8:21
    talked he said well you know but she's a
  • 8:22
    real news organization he throws that in
  • 8:25
    a guy working for the New York Times it
  • 8:27
    says that I mean it was too much
  • 8:30
    actually this I don't want to start I
  • 8:32
    don't want to start with his stuff it's
  • 8:33
    not the best but let's play him talking
  • 8:36
    about about this Brooks and some woman
  • 8:39
    are each from felony president told his
  • 8:41
    former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to
  • 8:43
    Congress yeah this is significant for a
  • 8:45
    couple reasons one it's a felony the
  • 8:47
    president allegedly committed while
  • 8:48
    being president unlike all the previous
  • 8:50
    stuff and then it is a bit of a you know
  • 8:53
    he's president n states are running for
  • 8:55
    office and he puts the u.s. national
  • 8:57
    interest behind his own interest in
  • 8:58
    getting the Trump Tower built in Moscow
  • 9:00
    so these are both very serious things
  • 9:02
    David French of National Review pointed
  • 9:04
    out that in Michael Cohen sentencing
  • 9:06
    agreement months and months ago this was
  • 9:08
    right out there in the open for all of
  • 9:09
    us that cones lawyer said he did he lied
  • 9:14
    to Congress because person number one
  • 9:16
    Donald Trump told him to do it and he
  • 9:18
    didn't have the strength to resist and
  • 9:19
    so that suggests there's some meat to
  • 9:23
    this BuzzFeed is a real news
  • 9:24
    organization the BuzzFeed report you
  • 9:29
    can't tell whether they have written
  • 9:31
    evidence they say there's a trove of
  • 9:33
    documents they say there's a trove of
  • 9:35
    emails and texts but is there an actual
  • 9:37
    piece of paper with Donald Trump saying
  • 9:39
    lie to Congress that would be pretty
  • 9:41
    explosive if that exists or recording or
  • 9:44
    recording lordy let there be tape
  • 9:47
    somebody said operation suppose lordy oh
  • 9:57
    lordy lordy be tapes a little bit biased
  • 10:01
    now the thing that they wrapped with
  • 10:03
    which is might you our thesis about the
  • 10:10
    which is really all about and then you
  • 10:12
    listen carefully to this Brooks and some
  • 10:14
    woman impeach or a vote moment and and
  • 10:17
    you're gonna hear our meme can I just
  • 10:20
    just play something in the interim for
  • 10:22
    just one second that's I just I was
  • 10:24
    searching for James Comey saying lordy
  • 10:26
    yeah listen to this you're big you're
  • 10:30
    strong I know the Oval Office hook it in
  • 10:34
    and the only thing I could think to say
  • 10:36
    because I was playing in my mind cuz I
  • 10:38
    go to
  • 10:39
    every word he said I was playing in my
  • 10:40
    mind what should my response be and
  • 10:43
    that's why I very carefully chose the
  • 10:45
    words and look like I've seen the tweet
  • 10:47
    about tapes lordy I hope their tapes huh
  • 10:49
    she took it from Comey no she took it
  • 10:53
    from Comey I didn't realize that lordy I
  • 10:55
    hope their tapes okay now I get it like
  • 10:57
    I've heard this phrase before all right
  • 10:59
    well you're gonna hear it more from the
  • 11:00
    media so let's listen are the thesis the
  • 11:04
    basic overriding thesis that's part of
  • 11:06
    this show where they are we with it this
  • 11:08
    one the second Brooks clip yeah we're
  • 11:10
    gonna impeach her are we not where does
  • 11:11
    their emphasis go this is an interesting
  • 11:13
    debate on the left do we want this guy
  • 11:15
    impeach or do we want to vote him out
  • 11:16
    which is better for the country
  • 11:18
    I think voting that would be better for
  • 11:20
    the country but if there's the evidence
  • 11:21
    mounts you really have no choice it's
  • 11:23
    interesting mean I know many Democratic
  • 11:26
    members of Congress who believe as David
  • 11:29
    said they would be better off running
  • 11:31
    against Donald Trump then against
  • 11:33
    whoever the Republicans will put up in
  • 11:35
    his face but this is as as jamie raskin
  • 11:38
    was suggesting an insult to the very
  • 11:42
    constitutional system so there you have
  • 11:46
    it day one I want to vote him out they
  • 11:48
    don't want to impeach him because it's a
  • 11:50
    scam yeah they just want to keep it
  • 11:52
    running for two more years now I want to
  • 11:56
    play the overview from PBS with DES yard
  • 12:01
    and woman and then I want to cut to this
  • 12:04
    guy this congressman Jamie Raskin who
  • 12:07
    just is absolutely off the rails and
  • 12:10
    he's an interesting character because
  • 12:11
    our former economic hitman contact is a
  • 12:15
    buddy of his uh-huh and we condemned him
  • 12:18
    once before for something else he did
  • 12:19
    this on a dumb and you got a note yeah
  • 12:22
    it's a pretty good guy have we heard
  • 12:25
    from our economic hitman no he's over
  • 12:28
    well he's flown the coop so let's this
  • 12:32
    is the overview on PBS and this kind of
  • 12:35
    gives us brings us up to the point where
  • 12:38
    they hit the hit the horn and had the
  • 12:41
    room hey which by the way I shouldn't
  • 12:43
    mention the next day because I have
  • 12:45
    clips of that too they were so sheepish
  • 12:48
    about backing off on this yeah they were
  • 12:51
    picking apart
  • 12:52
    the entire sentence from Muller's office
  • 12:54
    yeah they're picking that apart saying
  • 12:56
    well but he still stands by their story
  • 12:58
    and all the rest of it when in fact they
  • 13:00
    were busted for buying into just any old
  • 13:04
    unsourced no it was they had sources
  • 13:06
    Bullock read sources say yes sources say
  • 13:11
    we had two guys we know I mean right
  • 13:14
    away it was very sketchy but it's just
  • 13:16
    bad but they were so sheepish about all
  • 13:19
    the fuss they made it just one sec I
  • 13:22
    mean we do remember that BuzzFeed was
  • 13:25
    the first one to publish the steel
  • 13:26
    dossier the rancid dossier I mean I
  • 13:33
    didn't hear a lot of people saying well
  • 13:35
    you know last time they had a bombshell
  • 13:37
    it turned out to be kind of not such a
  • 13:39
    Bobson I don't think anyone really said
  • 13:40
    that oh lordy all right what are we
  • 13:51
    gonna listen to here like you'll realize
  • 13:53
    the overview PBS and a BuzzFeed this oh
  • 13:55
    wait that's not it that's a nice piece
  • 13:56
    like that yeah correction PBS no that's
  • 14:02
    the next day huh huh
  • 14:03
    BuzzFeed with Lanny Davis BuzzFeed is a
  • 14:08
    PBS bombshell from BuzzFeed esta clip it
  • 14:14
    is a bombshell from BuzzFeed news that
  • 14:16
    it started out cries from Capitol Hill
  • 14:19
    it could be the most damning set of
  • 14:22
    diseases yet tying president Trump to an
  • 14:24
    impeachable offense Lisa Desjardins with
  • 14:27
    what we know and the response from
  • 14:29
    lawmakers a new serious friction point
  • 14:33
    between the White House and the Capitol
  • 14:35
    as Democratic lawmakers react to the
  • 14:37
    report that alleges president Trump
  • 14:39
    ordered his attorney Michael Cohen to
  • 14:41
    lie to Congress if these facts are true
  • 14:44
    this is suborning perjury Rhode Island
  • 14:47
    Democrat David Cicilline spoke on CNN
  • 14:49
    he's on the Judiciary Committee the
  • 14:51
    committee with jurisdiction over
  • 14:53
    impeachment I think there's no question
  • 14:55
    it's an impeachable offense and it's
  • 14:59
    again just one more data point about
  • 15:00
    what was the reason that they were
  • 15:03
    trying so hard to keep this Russia
  • 15:05
    and this Russia relationships so secret
  • 15:08
    the Democratic Judiciary Chairman Jerry
  • 15:10
    Nadler said in a tweet that directing a
  • 15:12
    subordinate to lie to Congress is a
  • 15:14
    federal crime and he promised
  • 15:17
    investigations the BuzzFeed report
  • 15:19
    alleges mr. Trump just a technical
  • 15:22
    question ordering a subordinate to lie
  • 15:25
    to Congress
  • 15:26
    I'm sure that's that's a felony but was
  • 15:29
    he really a subordinate
  • 15:30
    he's a lawyer anybody to lie to perjure
  • 15:34
    themselves a felony okay use the word
  • 15:39
    ordering like he's some big boss's
  • 15:40
    attorney attorneys know what they're
  • 15:42
    doing they're not gonna be ordered by
  • 15:44
    their clients you say what if you ask if
  • 15:47
    you say hey would you mind lying to
  • 15:48
    Congress is that also a felony probably
  • 15:50
    investigation not that I'm thinking of
  • 15:52
    trying it anytime soon in my back pocket
  • 16:01
    the BuzzFeed report alleges mr. Trump
  • 16:04
    personally directed Cohen to lie about
  • 16:06
    plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow
  • 16:08
    no other news outlet has confirmed the
  • 16:11
    story
  • 16:11
    it comes after Cohen cleated guilty in
  • 16:14
    November to lying to congressional
  • 16:16
    intelligence committees about the
  • 16:17
    so-called Moscow project Cohen is now
  • 16:20
    cooperating with federal prosecutors I'm
  • 16:23
    sorry I gotta stop it again
  • 16:24
    she said instead of saying we have not
  • 16:26
    been able to independently verify the
  • 16:28
    story she says something very
  • 16:29
    interesting no other news organizations
  • 16:32
    have verified the story does that mean
  • 16:34
    that if other news organizations say
  • 16:37
    yeah we're in then it's okay they still
  • 16:39
    don't have to do their own research PBS
  • 16:42
    that's a very good catch yes it's no PBS
  • 16:45
    ado jack I mean that's that's basically
  • 16:48
    what they're saying but she's saying
  • 16:50
    feed report alleges mr. Trump personally
  • 16:53
    directed Cohen to lie about plans to
  • 16:56
    build a Trump Tower in Moscow no other
  • 16:58
    news outlet has confirmed the story yeah
  • 17:01
    that's circular reporting I guess of if
  • 17:03
    they cursive while CNN confirms but they
  • 17:06
    didn't have it it comes after Cohen
  • 17:07
    pleaded guilty in November to lying to
  • 17:10
    congressional intelligence does this
  • 17:12
    sound like one of those CIA operations
  • 17:15
    what's the way drop some bombshell
  • 17:17
    someplace and then they use that as the
  • 17:19
    basis for everybody else from saying
  • 17:21
    that this happened yeah circular
  • 17:27
    reporting that's the trick exactly about
  • 17:29
    the so-called Moscow project Cohen is
  • 17:32
    now cooperating with federal prosecutors
  • 17:34
    BuzzFeed says Cohen was not a source for
  • 17:37
    its story
  • 17:38
    the president's current attorney Rudy
  • 17:40
    Giuliani denied the report and in a
  • 17:42
    statement called it categorically false
  • 17:45
    on Fox News White House deputy press
  • 17:47
    secretary Hogan Gidley questioned
  • 17:49
    BuzzFeed's reporting absolutely
  • 17:52
    ludicrous that we are giving any type of
  • 17:54
    credence or credibility to a news outlet
  • 17:57
    like BuzzFeed there's no president did
  • 17:59
    not tell Michael Cohen to do that I'm
  • 18:01
    telling you right now this is exactly
  • 18:03
    why the president refuses to give any
  • 18:05
    credence or credibility to news outlets
  • 18:07
    out of Virginia food bank today serving
  • 18:10
    furloughed workers the top Democrat on
  • 18:13
    the Senate Intelligence Committee Mark
  • 18:15
    Warner to reporters but it explains why
  • 18:28
    Michael Cohen wide and earlier testimony
  • 18:31
    to our committee he added the committee
  • 18:34
    is arranging for Cohen to appear again
  • 18:36
    next month oh yeah they're all carry now
  • 18:41
    I gotta get to the serious Eclipse which
  • 18:43
    is the biz the basis for my whole report
  • 18:45
    all right we're ready for it Jamie
  • 18:47
    Raskin what what a stooge this guy is
  • 18:53
    looks like he has a step for a month who
  • 18:55
    is this guy whose congressman I think
  • 18:59
    he's from New York or somewhere but he
  • 19:00
    just a hellish looking man who and he
  • 19:04
    doesn't know what he's talking about and
  • 19:06
    he's just making shit up and he's and
  • 19:08
    he's just oh I'm just looking at his
  • 19:10
    he's from Maryland O'Mara I'm looking at
  • 19:13
    he's kind of like Kramer from Seinfeld
  • 19:17
    yeah little bit he's a horrible looking
  • 19:19
    and well he lets go he can be no good if
  • 19:22
    he looks this way well there is a basis
  • 19:27
    for thinking that way okay but I'm not
  • 19:29
    gonna get into it but let's just put him
  • 19:31
    on but this is the first
  • 19:33
    the jamie raskin we know it is true
  • 19:35
    let's hear now from Capitol Hill
  • 19:37
    representative Jamie Raskin of Maryland
  • 19:39
    as a member of the House Democratic
  • 19:41
    leadership team and he serves on the
  • 19:43
    Judiciary Committee he formerly was a
  • 19:45
    professor of constitutional law
  • 19:47
    congressman Raskin thank you very much
  • 19:50
    for joining us you said earlier today
  • 19:51
    that if this is true it would be an
  • 19:54
    impeachable offense how so well we know
  • 19:58
    it's true because of course the
  • 20:00
    Republicans impeach Bill Clinton over
  • 20:02
    telling one lie about one sexual affair
  • 20:07
    we know it's true wait let's get this
  • 20:11
    straight so then we so he starts off
  • 20:12
    with a non sequitur he says we know it's
  • 20:15
    true because Bill Clinton was impeached
  • 20:17
    for a sexual affair mm-hmm what is that
  • 20:20
    what does that get what does one got to
  • 20:21
    do it the other what does anything had
  • 20:23
    to do with truth so he's off to a bad
  • 20:26
    start would by saying we know it's true
  • 20:28
    was his first opening salvos we know
  • 20:30
    it's true we know it's true so it's not
  • 20:33
    as as as questionable here we know it's
  • 20:35
    true now was it I believe I should have
  • 20:39
    looked to find a clip of this that
  • 20:40
    Klobuchar Amy Klobuchar was ban addicted
  • 20:44
    okay then I'll shut up and let you go no
  • 20:46
    no what I heard is that she was grilling
  • 20:49
    who's the new attorney general candidate
  • 20:51
    yeah yeah I have that that's in the
  • 20:54
    democracy I don't have her complete
  • 20:56
    clipping it's in that within the
  • 20:57
    Democracy Now clip yeah as if she had
  • 20:59
    already heard the point is she was
  • 21:01
    grilling what's the guy's name the
  • 21:04
    wheeler not what's-his-name yeah
  • 21:07
    the net the bush guy here's the rundown
  • 21:14
    she says hey if he did this is that an
  • 21:16
    impeachable offense right wears no it no
  • 21:19
    is that against the law and he says yeah
  • 21:21
    and and this is wooden and then she said
  • 21:25
    almost exact the president asked someone
  • 21:28
    to lie for him to Congress would that be
  • 21:30
    a felony yeah of course it's Bar William
  • 21:33
    bar that's who it is bar and he'd also
  • 21:35
    been bar also says yeah but it'd be a
  • 21:37
    felony for anyone so so they it's clear
  • 21:41
    that Klobuchar had this information
  • 21:44
    that's why she was doing it
  • 21:46
    I think that maybe this is before
  • 21:49
    BuzzFeed came out you must be timeline
  • 21:52
    right yeah yeah yeah okay yeah yeah cuz
  • 21:55
    they cuz she's a stooge yep
  • 21:57
    so I'm just saying that's why the guy
  • 21:59
    like this who's on the inside like oh we
  • 22:01
    know it's true we know he knows we got
  • 22:03
    that we got the briefing you see we got
  • 22:05
    the BuzzFeed briefing leo or CIA
  • 22:07
    briefing everyone comes first okay Jamie
  • 22:10
    Raskin - this is good one sexual affair
  • 22:15
    and this is about organizing a whole
  • 22:17
    pattern of lies in order to deceive the
  • 22:21
    Congress of the United States about a
  • 22:23
    matter of national security in a matter
  • 22:25
    that goes to the heart of American
  • 22:27
    national sovereignty so lying an
  • 22:31
    obstruction of justice have figured
  • 22:34
    centrally in the impeachments that we've
  • 22:37
    seen in modern times that is in the
  • 22:40
    Nixon impeachment and the articles of
  • 22:44
    impeachment brought against Clinton's he
  • 22:47
    wasn't impeached he wasn't impeach no
  • 22:50
    our about our professor of
  • 22:51
    constitutional law
  • 22:54
    think that he was impeached this is one
  • 22:57
    of your favorites I think I'm starting
  • 23:00
    to notice it as a meme they're trying to
  • 23:02
    push into the public consciousness the
  • 23:05
    idea that Nixon was impeached when he
  • 23:09
    wasn't well tbh until we started doing
  • 23:13
    the show and you brought it up years and
  • 23:15
    years ago I'm pretty sure I thought he'd
  • 23:18
    be who had been in peach - that was
  • 23:20
    always kind of in the lexicon the way I
  • 23:22
    understood it growing up well you were
  • 23:25
    you were duped I was and I was
  • 23:27
    subsequently saved yes by the show yeah
  • 23:30
    okay well he doubles down on the Nixon
  • 23:33
    thing so let's go to clip three the
  • 23:36
    articles of impeachment brought against
  • 23:38
    Clinton so but both in the Articles that
  • 23:40
    were brought against Nixon and the
  • 23:42
    articles brought against Clinton
  • 23:44
    obstruction of justice and lying were
  • 23:45
    central so I think everybody views the
  • 23:49
    president's involvement in lying to
  • 23:51
    Congress and suborning perjury as
  • 23:54
    certainly a statutory felony violation
  • 23:57
    under
  • 23:59
    law but also a major constitutional
  • 24:01
    offense against the rule of law and our
  • 24:03
    Constitution okay Judy jump in and tell
  • 24:06
    him that Nixon wasn't impeach hey judy
  • 24:09
    judy jump in and tell him that Nixon was
  • 24:13
    it in peach and guess get this back on
  • 24:15
    track Judy let me guess
  • 24:16
    does clip for pertain Judy jumping in
  • 24:19
    and saying that I know damn all by the
  • 24:25
    way these clips are continuation there's
  • 24:27
    not nothing taken out so I didn't cut
  • 24:29
    Judy out she's right back in it now you
  • 24:32
    she's so concerned anyway play this and
  • 24:34
    then I have a kicker because again this
  • 24:38
    is a problem with Judy play this law and
  • 24:40
    our Constitution suborning perjury
  • 24:42
    meaning telling someone else to lie
  • 24:44
    before the Congress or before a jury but
  • 24:49
    congressman what is it exactly in this
  • 24:51
    new information that you that that you
  • 24:55
    think makes it something that is an
  • 24:58
    impeachable offense what is it exactly
  • 25:00
    well let's start with this we don't know
  • 25:02
    whether or not this is true all we have
  • 25:04
    is one news report about what one
  • 25:08
    witness has said now obviously it's a
  • 25:10
    key witness and Michael Cohen was the
  • 25:12
    president's personal lawyer but what
  • 25:14
    Cohen is saying is that the president
  • 25:17
    urged him and counseled him and
  • 25:20
    essentially conspired with him to lie
  • 25:23
    before Congress and suborning perjury
  • 25:27
    that is urging and coaching someone to
  • 25:31
    lie in a sworn context is itself a
  • 25:35
    federal criminal offense it is a felony
  • 25:40
    all right you heard what he said now
  • 25:42
    we're talking about the show does Judy
  • 25:44
    show a mere three or four minutes before
  • 25:48
    this guy we heard this this is now the
  • 25:52
    clip you're gonna place overview PBS on
  • 25:55
    BuzzFeed slander jarred an I so BuzzFeed
  • 25:57
    says Cohen was not a source for its
  • 26:00
    story
  • 26:02
    okay well if you just heard what this
  • 26:05
    guy said and Judy heard yeah the guy
  • 26:08
    says Cohen Cohen said this Cohen said
  • 26:10
    that Cohen was the source of the story
  • 26:12
    let's play clip four again after
  • 26:14
    listening to what you just heard law and
  • 26:16
    our Constitution suborning perjury
  • 26:17
    meaning telling someone else to lie
  • 26:20
    before the Congress or before a jury but
  • 26:24
    congressman what is it exactly in this
  • 26:27
    new information that you that that you
  • 26:30
    think makes it something that is an
  • 26:33
    impeachable offense what is it exactly
  • 26:35
    well let's start with this we don't know
  • 26:37
    whether or not this is true all we have
  • 26:40
    is one news report about what one
  • 26:43
    witness has said now obviously it's a
  • 26:45
    key witness and Michael Cohen was the
  • 26:48
    president's personal lawyer but what
  • 26:49
    Cohen is saying that is that the
  • 26:52
    president urged him and counseled him
  • 26:54
    and essentially conspired with him to
  • 26:58
    lie before Congress so this is he's just
  • 27:01
    delusional because he believes that the
  • 27:03
    one witness or the one source was one
  • 27:07
    witness one the one witness or one
  • 27:09
    source he didn't make it's clear that
  • 27:11
    was the only one right he does say that
  • 27:14
    Cohen's was behind this report and it's
  • 27:18
    clear by the reporting done on PBS but
  • 27:21
    just five minutes before that he was
  • 27:24
    listening to because when you go and sit
  • 27:27
    down on one of these things you're
  • 27:28
    hearing the whole show and they stated
  • 27:29
    he didn't think they don't hear this
  • 27:32
    stuff yeah they do he only hears himself
  • 27:34
    is what I'm saying he could actually
  • 27:37
    hear it I'm sure the audio but let's
  • 27:40
    take it to another level
  • 27:41
    judi heard it judi heard the Chardin
  • 27:45
    report where she specifically says in
  • 27:47
    that die so Cohen did not contribute to
  • 27:51
    the BuzzFeed report he had he didn't say
  • 27:53
    anything about anything he's done these
  • 27:55
    Mommy's over on the sidelines
  • 27:56
    Judy knows that she just heard it a few
  • 27:59
    minutes ago she did the report you know
  • 28:01
    just because well this guy saying that
  • 28:02
    his colon spilling his guts that's
  • 28:04
    causing the problem and she doesn't say
  • 28:07
    anything I would like to remind you that
  • 28:08
    just because she has a pearls has a
  • 28:12
    stately manner about her
  • 28:14
    doesn't mean that she isn't just like
  • 28:16
    any other prostitute she's just reading
  • 28:18
    the prompter it's what she's not
  • 28:21
    listening to anybody
  • 28:24
    apparently not she missed the Nixon
  • 28:26
    thing she missed this and this one I
  • 28:28
    thought was more egregious because this
  • 28:31
    guy's going on and on about Cohen
  • 28:32
    spilling his guts in the BuzzFeed
  • 28:35
    article when in fact he didn't even
  • 28:36
    contribute to the BuzzFeed article as
  • 28:38
    previously mentioned in the same news
  • 28:41
    report yes this was a continuation of
  • 28:43
    what Jordans was doing this is extremely
  • 28:47
    poor reporting I mean I can't believe
  • 28:49
    how bad it is she's got to go I think
  • 28:53
    you should replace her I'm not replacing
  • 28:55
    anybody okay just a thought it doesn't
  • 29:00
    give me the opportunity to grouch like
  • 29:02
    no no I got you I can tell you very
  • 29:04
    disappointed I think credibly did
  • 29:06
    somebody ever since Gwen my hope died
  • 29:09
    died this show has deteriorated to the
  • 29:13
    extreme I sure taught me a lesson
  • 29:15
    because we were always harping on Gwen
  • 29:18
    and then she passed away and it turns
  • 29:20
    out she was the real heart of the show
  • 29:23
    no we didn't know just a rap food I've
  • 29:28
    got I don't have that much but I do have
  • 29:31
    that the I have the correction on PBS
  • 29:35
    the next day which is so lame but I want
  • 29:37
    to play I got to Ikes I got two more
  • 29:40
    consumption but I want to play this
  • 29:41
    story by Democracy Now which includes
  • 29:43
    the Amy Klobuchar thing or we can skip
  • 29:45
    it's only a minute yes please Democrats
  • 29:48
    say such an order would also constitute
  • 29:50
    obstruction of justice a felony Trump's
  • 29:52
    nominee to become the next Attorney
  • 29:54
    General William Bar appeared to agree
  • 29:56
    with that position during his Senate
  • 29:58
    confirmation hearing Tuesday Barra was
  • 30:01
    questioned by Minnesota Democrat

  • 31:07
    Tuesday almost you know five days before
  • 31:11
    the bombshell drop because they're all
  • 31:13
    fucking complicit that's why I'm not
  • 31:16
    gonna bike completely by that because
  • 31:18
    this this Amy report was done on the
  • 31:20
    Friday they had just dug this old thing
  • 31:23
    up and pulled it into the Friday report
  • 31:25
    cuz they knew that the buddy was out in
  • 31:28
    look in life how convenient
  • 31:29
    well I was yeah I agree with that it was
  • 31:32
    a little bit much but Klobuchar would do
  • 31:35
    this was no clue but chars complicit in
  • 31:37
    some sort of a scam well how about this
  • 31:39
    what if because remember Ben Ben white
  • 31:42
    or whether the gut Ben Smith in yeah Ben
  • 31:45
    Ben Ben Smith he disgraces the name Ben
  • 31:49
    all people named Ben we know dudes named
  • 31:53
    Ben they're heroes this is no dude named
  • 31:56
    Ben there's a douche named Ben he has
  • 32:00
    some kind of official mainstream
  • 32:03
    background doesn't either editor right
  • 32:05
    he's got all kinds of background he's
  • 32:07
    make sense loaded with background you
  • 32:10
    should look him up
  • 32:10
    well me me me ever even be able to speak
  • 32:13
    how about this so why would he so when
  • 32:16
    Miller's office comes out and you know
  • 32:19
    you can read it any way you want but he
  • 32:20
    said hey this is not factual that's
  • 32:23
    probably a good
  • 32:24
    translations is not factual what you
  • 32:26
    guys put out there and a simmer down was
  • 32:28
    kind of the undertone maybe he didn't
  • 32:32
    get it directly from sources maybe he
  • 32:34
    got from a Congress persons sources or
  • 32:36
    so because he felt pretty strong say no
  • 32:38
    no we stand by our reporting
  • 32:40
    well maybe the source is a club a charm
  • 32:42
    maybe the source is this Kramer looking
  • 32:44
    guy Raskin who knows who the sources I
  • 32:47
    have a feeling that that's that would be
  • 32:49
    interesting to know the Raskin guys
  • 32:52
    definitely something wrong with him
  • 32:53
    I'm I wouldn't trust this guy in the
  • 32:56
    inch I do have one last clip and I'm not
  • 33:01
    gonna play the the may a coupla clip
  • 33:04
    because it's not that interesting but I
  • 33:06
    do have a clip where the truth wants to
  • 33:08
    come out of our favorites this is Lanny
  • 33:12
    Davis the lawyer for Cohen who hates
  • 33:17
    Trump blathering on and he has a little
  • 33:21
    flub at the end Democrats it's a
  • 33:23
    bombshell claim that comes with a caveat
  • 33:25
    if it's true if the president directed
  • 33:29
    Michael Cohen to lie to Congress then
  • 33:32
    that's a clear case of participating in
  • 33:34
    perjury and obstruction of justice and
  • 33:37
    he should resign
  • 33:38
    that's after an explosive new report
  • 33:41
    which says president Trump personally
  • 33:43
    instructed his longtime lawyer to lie to
  • 33:45
    Congress to hide his involvement in a
  • 33:47
    real estate deal for a proposed Moscow
  • 33:49
    Trump Tower NBC News has not verified
  • 33:52
    the report and neither has any other
  • 33:54
    news outlet BuzzFeed sites two federal
  • 33:56
    law enforcement officials involved in an
  • 33:58
    investigation of the matter after
  • 33:59
    President Trump tweeted a vague
  • 34:01
    reference to Cohen's father-in-law one
  • 34:03
    of Cohen's advisers says he now fears
  • 34:05
    for his family and may not testify as
  • 34:08
    planned in front of Congress next month
  • 34:10
    family is out of bounds there's only one
  • 34:13
    person in the country one president in
  • 34:16
    our history that would threaten family
  • 34:19
    as a tactic to make fear of somebody who
  • 34:22
    calls a rat for telling the truth and
  • 34:24
    that's presidential Trump president who
  • 34:28
    president truth damn
  • 34:36
    and my mouth what was he saying
  • 34:38
    president truth
  • 34:39
    that's funny in a whole bunch of ways
  • 34:41
    yeah I got quite a kick out of the panel
  • 34:45
    over at CNN who immediately threw
  • 34:48
    BuzzFeed under the bus which is the only
  • 34:50
    way to go I think you're CNN's like
  • 34:52
    blaming on those guys quick and they had
  • 34:56
    who they have on they had the
  • 34:59
    constitutional lawyer that Toobin who's
  • 35:03
    there a lot lately work and Brian
  • 35:07
    seltzer water
  • 35:09
    you know the meet the media guy big head
  • 35:12
    here does I have a different view of the
  • 35:14
    implications of all this my view is this
  • 35:18
    isn't that the larger message that a lot
  • 35:21
    of people are going to take from this
  • 35:22
    story is that the news media are a bunch
  • 35:24
    of leftist liars
  • 35:26
    we're dying to get the president and
  • 35:28
    they're willing to lie to do it
  • 35:30
    that was some self-awareness that's for
  • 35:33
    sure that's good now we got to fight
  • 35:35
    back against that of course we can't
  • 35:36
    have that
  • 35:37
    well that and and I don't think that's
  • 35:39
    true medias I preach talking about the
  • 35:47
    law enforcement side but I mean they're
  • 35:48
    not they're not contradictory but I just
  • 35:50
    think this is a bad day for us you gotta
  • 35:55
    admit Toobin is on point with this this
  • 35:59
    is a bad day so I I have respect a
  • 36:01
    little bit for I disagree a little bit i
  • 36:04
    but I just think you know it reinforces
  • 36:05
    every bad stereotype about the news
  • 36:08
    media it does reinforce bad startups
  • 36:10
    about the news media I agree with you I
  • 36:11
    am desperate as a media reporter to
  • 36:13
    always say to the audience
  • 36:14
    judge folks individually and judge
  • 36:16
    brands individually don't fall for what
  • 36:19
    these politicians out there want you to
  • 36:20
    do they want you to think we're all
  • 36:22
    crooked we're not BuzzFeed now the onus
  • 36:34
    is on BuzzFeed right now the onus is on
  • 36:35
    say for buzz Ben Smith says he knows the
  • 36:38
    identity of the two sources obviously
  • 36:39
    the reporters you know the identity of
  • 36:41
    the two sources they're gonna be going
  • 36:43
    back to those two sources and hopefully
  • 36:44
    to other sources to try to get to the
  • 36:45
    bottom of this oh how many so
  • 36:47
    could there be Brian now it's a dispute
  • 36:49
    and I don't know how that disputes gonna
  • 36:51
    be resolved I'm not disagreeing with you
  • 36:53
    this this will be used obviously against
  • 36:55
    the media as a whole I hope not
  • 36:58
    everybody else to use it against the
  • 36:59
    bright think that the president is very
  • 37:01
    likely if past is prologue going to see
  • 37:03
    this as evidence for his attacks on the
  • 37:05
    media being justified and I think that
  • 37:07
    his supporters would say that that is
  • 37:09
    understandable then we need to keep
  • 37:11
    reinforcing to the audience how much
  • 37:12
    smoke there is but as a massive fire so
  • 37:15
    I saw much evidence of wrongdoing but we
  • 37:16
    do do that we do that ever we do that
  • 37:18
    every day I think the important things
  • 37:20
    to remember that part of why it if if
  • 37:23
    the media gets are doing wrong and then
  • 37:25
    Smith the same they stand by their
  • 37:26
    reporting if the media gets something
  • 37:27
    wrong it is incumbent on us to correct
  • 37:29
    it and I understand that it is
  • 37:31
    frustrating to the press and also to
  • 37:32
    people who believe in the press that the
  • 37:34
    the White House does not necessarily
  • 37:36
    follow that same standard for themselves
  • 37:38
    but that has nothing to do with what we
  • 37:40
    do we have to keep our standard size
  • 37:47
    lower than ours in this case it will we
  • 37:51
    kept him high he kept them high by
  • 37:53
    saying well we couldn't confirm the
  • 37:55
    report but the bombshell report
  • 37:57
    explosive report bombshell and jeez yeah
  • 38:01
    now that was just fantastic to see that
  • 38:04
    happen in this happens the next day and
  • 38:09
    ends the day after it was just so
  • 38:11
    interested twenty four full hours no no
  • 38:16
    didn't in that pretty small period that
  • 38:18
    small window they all piled on like
  • 38:20
    maniacs it was interesting because
  • 38:23
    Saturday morning we woke up and Tina's
  • 38:26
    like oh man this did Twitter's blowing
  • 38:28
    up she's my canary in the coal mine and
  • 38:32
    I said was having a while yeah this that
  • 38:34
    BuzzFeed BuzzFeed like what it's had
  • 38:38
    this is you know if you lie then screw
  • 38:40
    this guy alright okay and I said yeah I
  • 38:44
    think I said you know it's BuzzFeed
  • 38:47
    let's see how this shakes out and and
  • 38:49
    she was monitoring people who were just
  • 38:51
    losing their crap over this and that was
  • 38:54
    just Twitter that wasn't even till we
  • 38:55
    flipped on the TV and saw everyone going
  • 38:57
    nuts and yeah 24 hours later gone
  • 39:00
    yeah although not really because you
  • 39:02
    know it's so unusual for the special
  • 39:05
    investigators office to make any kind of
  • 39:08
    statement
  • 39:09
    this isn't so unusual it must be some
  • 39:11
    code as code we got to parse the words
  • 39:13
    better it's code there's definitely some
  • 39:15
    code in there that's why there's code
  • 39:17
    the mainstream guys the big boys not to
  • 39:21
    you know BuzzFeed's or anybody lesser
  • 39:23
    yeah the mainstream guys just kind of
  • 39:25
    brushed it under what's that but they
  • 39:27
    did a real quickie they all do it quick
  • 39:30
    turn in a way that they start they led
  • 39:32
    with it but when it comes up for example
  • 39:34
    I have a good example this is the the
  • 39:36
    Saturday PBS teaser okay so now this is
  • 39:41
    the teaser so I'm expecting because I
  • 39:44
    think the biggest news story was that
  • 39:45
    the wisdom was the the killing of this
  • 39:49
    other story especially when you lead
  • 39:52
    with it the day before and you made you
  • 39:54
    made person after person after person
  • 39:56
    talked about it and you brought in Jamie
  • 39:59
    Raskin to go on and on you'd think that
  • 40:04
    you would lead with it again the next
  • 40:06
    day
  • 40:07
    no let's bury that below you'd think
  • 40:10
    you'd even tease it no this here's the
  • 40:12
    teaser on the next day on PBS on this
  • 40:15
    edition for Saturday January 19th a
  • 40:17
    presidential announcement as the partial
  • 40:19
    government shutdown enters its fifth
  • 40:21
    week at day 29 the third annual women's
  • 40:25
    March takes place across the country
  • 40:26
    despite recent controversy and in our
  • 40:29
    signature segment Iraqi soldiers feeling
  • 40:32
    forgotten after fighting for their
  • 40:33
    country
  • 40:34
    next on PBS Newshour weekend
  • 40:37
    and BuzzFeed was not a bombshell where
  • 40:40
    was it nothing you think it would be in
  • 40:42
    the teaser that would because it was
  • 40:44
    such a big deal today before but no they
  • 40:45
    don't even bother to mention do a little
  • 40:48
    piece on it and they it was mediocre was
  • 40:51
    hardly anything like it we screwed up
  • 40:53
    yeah but it was an it was an
  • 40:55
    embarrassment for the media I think that
  • 40:57
    Toobin is right yes now but in this case
  • 41:02
    you know when he does that that also
  • 41:03
    he's a lawyer you know I'm not really a
  • 41:05
    media guy over here these news guy I'm a
  • 41:07
    lawyer so I got it seen I got it
  • 41:09
    straight almost as bad as these guys
  • 41:12
    where they get caught re reporting a
  • 41:15
    hoax
  • 41:16
    bullshit this least a couple times a
  • 41:18
    year yeah well they did exactly look
  • 41:21
    anyone who reads a report in the New
  • 41:23
    York Times it's just become normal we've
  • 41:25
    talked about this for years now it used
  • 41:28
    to be get someone on record to state
  • 41:29
    their name and say here's what I said
  • 41:31
    and that's just turned into sources and
  • 41:33
    at first it was government sources and
  • 41:35
    it was people who know government
  • 41:37
    sources and now it's just some sources
  • 41:39
    and they got caught it should be a big
  • 41:42
    warning to some of the other big
  • 41:45
    mainstream publications and mainly the
  • 41:48
    New York Times they should be very
  • 41:51
    careful because they're going to they're
  • 41:52
    going to get caught in this someday as
  • 41:54
    well
  • 41:55
    he just cleared before the source into
  • 41:57
    some of the fake reporters that they had
  • 41:59
    working for MIT oh yeah but then it says
  • 42:01
    well this guy was bad it was a bad apple
  • 42:03
    and he made stuff up he was bad it was
  • 42:05
    just him there was nothing New York
  • 42:06
    Times not the institution just one slip
  • 42:08
    through like the TSA letting an old
  • 42:10
    granny with a with a handgun yeah in her
  • 42:13
    bag that's the way it's handled
  • 42:14
    granny with a handgun granny get your
  • 42:18
    gun okay so we did have some other
  • 42:21
    things happen over the weekend I thought
  • 42:23
    really
  • 42:24
    I thought the thought the press the
  • 42:26
    president's 3:00 p.m. speech was
  • 42:31
    interesting I just clipped it wait you
  • 42:33
    used the word interesting yeah I thought
  • 42:35
    it was interesting it was interesting
  • 42:37
    for a number of reasons he had a
  • 42:39
    different setting it was kind of like in
  • 42:41
    the hallway with George Washington
  • 42:42
    behind him it looked not very regal and
  • 42:47
    presidential it looked kind of like off
  • 42:49
    to the side I don't know someone just
  • 42:51
    built a quick little set no your
  • 42:53
    impression was but I thought it was kind
  • 42:55
    of weak yeah that didn't bother me at
  • 42:58
    all
  • 42:58
    and he offered a deal and he tried to
  • 43:02
    explain why we need a wall and I don't
  • 43:04
    know if anyone watches these things I
  • 43:06
    don't know if there was any real
  • 43:07
    reporting what I got was I think this is
  • 43:09
    from CBS and they actually edited this
  • 43:12
    because you know why give you everything
  • 43:14
    the president said but this was his
  • 43:16
    offer in the CBS edit our plan includes
  • 43:19
    the following eight hundred million
  • 43:22
    dollars in urgent humanitarian
  • 43:25
    assistance eight hundred and five
  • 43:29
    million dollars for drug detection

  • 43:54
    almost 900,000 cases our plan includes
  • 44:00
    critical measures to protect migrant
  • 44:03
    children from exploitation and abuse

  • 44:19
    reunification for unaccompanied children

  • 44:25
    weird sentence but what is this about

    miners who can then apply for a visa it
  • 44:31
    is there some mining company he's
  • 44:32
    hooking up here that's what it sounds
  • 44:35
    like to me with so miners these are like

  • 45:23
    elements that's where they cut out what
  • 45:25
    he explains it as I just cut that out as
  • 45:27
    to my plan
  • 45:27
    number one is three years of legislative
  • 45:32
    relief for 700,000 daca recipients
  • 45:36
    brought here unlawfully by their parents
  • 45:39
    at a young age many years ago this
  • 45:43
    extension will give them access to work
  • 45:45
    permits Social Security numbers and
  • 45:49
    protection from deportation most
  • 45:52
    importantly secondly our proposal
  • 45:55
    provides a three-year extension of
  • 45:58
    temporary protected status or TPS this
  • 46:02
    means that 300,000 immigrants whose
  • 46:06
    protective status is facing expiration
  • 46:09
    will now have three more years of
  • 46:11
    certainty so that Congress can work on a
  • 46:14
    larger immigration deal which everybody
  • 46:16
    wants Republicans and Democrats
  • 46:19
    so when I heard this to me it sounded
  • 46:21
    like a little light on on the offering
  • 46:24
    hadn't hadn't we been it like 2 million
  • 46:27
    Dhaka and the Dhaka kid the kids parents
  • 46:30
    that was the last time we heard about it
  • 46:33
    and I would think that the Democrats
  • 46:35
    would jump at any Dhaka deal
  • 46:37
    well the but with the Trump did this
  • 46:39
    with the Dhaka deals a year and a half
  • 46:41
    ago or something like a year ago they
  • 46:43
    refused it it's not gonna buy anything
  • 46:45
    he does they don't care about Dhaka
  • 46:48
    they're a bunch of phonies side of the
  • 46:51
    aisle okay I'm just yeah Trump doesn't
  • 46:55
    either
  • 46:56
    he's just trying to make something
  • 46:58
    happen I guess he's not doing any I mean
  • 47:01
    he's the great negotiator should be able
  • 47:03
    to do a better job than let these Pelosi
  • 47:05
    and Schumer to to like weirdos run him
  • 47:11
    around like this but okay well let's see
  • 47:12
    what happens they're all they've they
  • 47:14
    have some power right now so they can
  • 47:16
    totally do that
  • 47:16
    well Schumer not so much but Pelosi
  • 47:19
    closer us now so of course we had the
  • 47:23
    you're not allowed to do your State of
  • 47:26
    the Union in the house
  • 47:28
    according to Pelosi you can you can do
  • 47:30
    that from the Oval Office
  • 47:32
    screw you and then Trump grounded her
  • 47:35
    plane that was funny
  • 47:38
    now and then Lindsey Graham comes out
  • 47:40
    and space them commentary about this
  • 47:42
    being one sophomoric act after another
  • 47:44
    well before we go any further what she
  • 47:49
    was doing was and there was a not much
  • 47:51
    Adam Schiff I think was going along and
  • 47:53
    a couple other Congress persons yes sure
  • 47:58
    and they're going to Brussels and we
  • 48:00
    know what what's what's happening we
  • 48:01
    know when they go to Brussels why are
  • 48:03
    they going to Brussels well they're
  • 48:05
    gonna go to they were supposed to stop
  • 48:07
    at Davos do some skiing and they're
  • 48:09
    gonna get some french fries a few meals
  • 48:13
    there maybe meet up with some EU guys
  • 48:16
    and maybe they'll pick up the tab matter
  • 48:18
    so there's a name for this which I had
  • 48:20
    not heard before but makes total sense
  • 48:22
    as Steve Peconic sent me a link to his
  • 48:24
    video that he did yesterday
  • 48:25
    I clipped the beginning of it it's
  • 48:27
    called a code el Nancy Pelosi for
  • 48:30
    reasons that are beyond my
  • 48:32
    understanding decided to go on a Codell
  • 48:34
    now let me explain what a code L is a
  • 48:37
    code L is a congressional delegation
  • 48:39
    that goes through specific countries I
  • 48:42
    was in the State Department as you know
  • 48:44
    I was a senior official and I was in
  • 48:47
    charge in many cases of having our
  • 48:50
    ambassadors represent the country that
  • 48:53
    the Congress people are coming to and
  • 48:56
    literally having to act as a
  • 48:59
    receptionist for the congressman or the
  • 49:02
    congresswoman utilizing all of our
  • 49:05
    assets in the embassy making things
  • 49:08
    happen that in fact we didn't need to
  • 49:10
    happen we had to use our deputy chief of
  • 49:13
    mission the station chief our political
  • 49:15
    officers were all tied up making sure
  • 49:19
    that the congressional representatives
  • 49:22
    were happy please entertain and for
  • 49:25
    maybe a few minutes they were involved
  • 49:27
    with the key issues of a particular
  • 49:29
    country in this case Brussels was the
  • 49:32
    beginning point and that was not an
  • 49:34
    accident Brussels is where they can go
  • 49:36
    out they can have a good time the
  • 49:38
    Congress people and they can enjoy
  • 49:40
    themselves for the most part they could
  • 49:42
    care a little about NATO you can find
  • 49:44
    out anything and everything you want
  • 49:46
    about NATO on the Internet and they know
  • 49:48
    very well they can get on the phone the
  • 49:51
    real issue here is that Nancy Pelosi is
  • 49:53
    known for having these junkets all
  • 49:56
    through her career she had over 80 of
  • 49:59
    them between 2009 and 2010 one of these
  • 50:03
    hotels costs us a hundred and eighty
  • 50:05
    five thousand dollars in tax dollars
  • 50:07
    that means that when Nancy Pelosi is
  • 50:10
    ordered to go on a private plane as
  • 50:13
    Trump had ordered her to do she said no
  • 50:15
    and the reason why she said no is that
  • 50:18
    her husband wouldn't pay for the flight
  • 50:20
    and she didn't want to use any of her
  • 50:22
    own money to fly overseas there you go
  • 50:25
    the Codell yeah you can hear that these
  • 50:30
    people show up but like an embassy over
  • 50:31
    there and everyone's pissed off totally
  • 50:35
    now we got to look busy and make these
  • 50:37
    people feel like they're doing something
  • 50:40
    that makes so much sense and then you go
  • 50:43
    gallivanting around town
  • 50:45
    do some shopping yes used to watch
  • 50:47
    Hillary do these things since you always
  • 50:49
    come back with this fabulous hairdo
  • 50:51
    yes when she saw Pierre in France but no
  • 50:53
    one wants to go to Paris right now cuz
  • 50:55
    you know it's kind of a shithole it just
  • 51:00
    it just keeps on going
  • 51:02
    demonstrations by so-called yellow vests
  • 51:04
    protesters in Paris turned to riots as
  • 51:07
    those taking part demanded that French
  • 51:09
    president Emmanuel macron should resign
  • 51:11
    police used tear gas and water cannon as
  • 51:14
    demonstrators became violent police also
  • 51:17
    tackle them with batons and
  • 51:18
    controversial flash ball guns crowds
  • 51:21
    calling for macron to step down also
  • 51:23
    scary the coffin shaped items to
  • 51:26
    represent the ten people who've died in
  • 51:28
    the protests there were 30 arrests in
  • 51:31
    Paris many suspected of carrying
  • 51:32
    offensive weapons similar demonstrations
  • 51:35
    took place in other French cities and
  • 51:37
    towns and more than 50,000 police and
  • 51:39
    Jean Dom's were deployed the yellow vest
  • 51:42
    protests began on November the 17th
  • 51:44
    there were an increase in fuel taxes
  • 51:46
    those fuel taxes have been scrapped but
  • 51:48
    the campaign has now become an anti
  • 51:50
    macron protest yeah and very quiet in
  • 51:55
    the international news gathering and
  • 51:57
    reporting business about this the UK has
  • 51:59
    a growing Legion of yellow vests so the
  • 52:07
    media is all in with the government's
  • 52:09
    that not really talked about this too
  • 52:11
    much I did as far as I can tell
  • 52:13
    except for that report where you got it
  • 52:15
    from a thing I've seen some minor stuff
  • 52:17
    on Sky News yeah we're the only ones to
  • 52:20
    talk about it yeah and these flash balls
  • 52:22
    yes doesn't talk about it no no no we
  • 52:26
    have no time to talk about these things
  • 52:27
    it's way too important now the flash
  • 52:30
    ball thing this touch killing people
  • 52:31
    with these shooting them in the back of
  • 52:33
    the head trademark for the normally less
  • 52:35
    Leith normally normally or nominally
  • 52:38
    it's not nominally less lethal a hand
  • 52:41
    you know it's a big thing it looks like
  • 52:43
    a grenade launcher yeah definitely huge
  • 52:46
    bore me a hundred millimeter bore
  • 52:50
    officers not situated apparently they
  • 52:53
    fire these things and they it was
  • 52:56
    developed by French hunting firearms man
  • 52:59
    facture Vernie was it Kari Karen I guess
  • 53:02
    it's aro and the weapon exists in two
  • 53:07
    versions that the caliber is dama it's a
  • 53:11
    44 it when it looks bigger than that it
  • 53:14
    looks much looks like a 88 oh I see is a
  • 53:19
    44 but the 83 it's an 83 yes a 83 huge
  • 53:23
    and what is it what is the projectile
  • 53:25
    super pro version features vertically
  • 53:28
    stacked barrels and what does it shoot
  • 53:30
    what does it just flash ball what is
  • 53:33
    that it shoots a ball rubber ball the
  • 53:38
    main one just shoots a rubber ball well
  • 53:40
    this is a big giant river pause I get
  • 53:42
    hit with a hand ball well I saw a guy in
  • 53:45
    the end they put have had to put him in
  • 53:46
    an induced coma probably hit him in the
  • 53:49
    head with it hit him in the back of the
  • 53:51
    head with a rubber ball yeah but yes the
  • 53:55
    UK apparently has a real movement now
  • 53:57
    I'm just getting this from bloggers no
  • 54:01
    mainstream reporting Anna you know
  • 54:03
    thanks to Sir Jeanne who by the way is a
  • 54:04
    Duke could not an Earl made that mistake
  • 54:06
    on the last show you know I did the
  • 54:08
    keeper and I we got our yellow vest
  • 54:10
    we're ready we're ready to take to the
  • 54:11
    streets good if that is another no
  • 54:14
    agenda premium item we could consider by
  • 54:17
    the way do we don't sell product
  • 54:19
    [Applause]
  • 54:23
    thousand troops the ISIS of virus the
  • 54:27
    killer from Nigeria
  • 54:30
    [Applause]
  • 54:34
    the troops are soon to follow and we
  • 54:38
    have confirmation wait I'll do this in
  • 54:42
    order the Democratic Republic of Congo
  • 54:44
    now particularly the northern part is
  • 54:47
    where your iPhone comes from the cobalt
  • 54:50
    materials which by the way are only in
  • 54:53
    Apple's case taken from artisan miners
  • 54:57
    that's little kids but their art isn't
  • 55:00
    small-batch little kids using stones
  • 55:04
    smart they are truly a small batch of
  • 55:07
    miners so the small batch works here
  • 55:10
    they had an election which you know it's
  • 55:14
    never really gone well there and as
  • 55:16
    predicted this one is now being
  • 55:18
    seriously disputed we go to Africa today
  • 55:21
    Martin for you Lou an opposition leader
  • 55:23
    the Democratic Republic of Congo
  • 55:26
    declared himself as the only legitimate
  • 55:28
    president of the country on Sunday his
  • 55:32
    reaction follows a ruling by the
  • 55:34
    Constitutional Court confirming Felicia
  • 55:36
    Sacchetti
  • 55:37
    as we know the December 30 polls the
  • 55:41
    Constitutional Court has once again
  • 55:45
    confirmed that like the thinny it is at
  • 55:48
    the service of a dictator or individual
  • 55:52
    it is neither more nor less a
  • 55:55
    constitutional coup d'etat because it
  • 55:58
    brings to the Supreme Majesties and none
  • 56:02
    elected for you though honest
  • 56:06
    international community not to accept
  • 56:08
    the verdicts by the country's top court
  • 56:11
    asked moreover to the whole of the
  • 56:15
    international community not to recognize
  • 56:18
    a power which has not neither legitimacy
  • 56:22
    no legal standing to represent the
  • 56:26
    Congolese people Martin foyer also
  • 56:30
    called or the Congolese people to
  • 56:31
    organize peaceful protests across the
  • 56:33
    country to protest against a ruling by
  • 56:36
    the Constitutional Court so the point of
  • 56:38
    me playing this report is one this is
  • 56:40
    the only report I could find on it
  • 56:42
    from Africa today there is a ongoing
  • 56:46
    dispute and just before the election
  • 56:49
    which not everyone even in the country
  • 56:51
    is voted in yet just before the election
  • 56:54
    there was an outbreak of Ebola in this
  • 56:56
    very region it was small and there were
  • 56:59
    some protests and people actually went
  • 57:00
    and kicked over the Ebola camp which
  • 57:02
    makes total sense that's that's what I
  • 57:04
    do when I'm pissed off and so now we
  • 57:07
    have this true dispute there's been
  • 57:09
    articles filed and there's problems and
  • 57:12
    although I have no audio no video
  • 57:15
    reports Vox picked it up the Ebola
  • 57:19
    outbreak in eastern Congo is moving
  • 57:22
    towards a major city that's not good
  • 57:25
    680 cases officially now the second
  • 57:29
    worst outbreak of Ebola ever in history
  • 57:35
    so troops are on their way there's no
  • 57:39
    way the troops have to come now this is
  • 57:42
    how it works yeah we already have about
  • 57:47
    80 of them we sent the troops over early
  • 57:49
    the the reconnaissance team but now it's
  • 57:52
    going to Goma this is apparently where
  • 57:54
    the outfit has spread to Goma koma koma
  • 57:57
    yeah this is in northern Peru this is
  • 57:59
    where all your artists and small-batch a
  • 58:01
    cobalt comes from Goma is not only
  • 58:05
    entirely run by the Chinese it is also
  • 58:08
    the kind of the crossroads of
  • 58:10
    Transportation so we're very worried now
  • 58:13
    that if he bola gets to Goma it could
  • 58:16
    then spread via train all over Africa so
  • 58:20
    let's go to China well maybe that is a
  • 58:25
    new strategy that I hadn't heard of but
  • 58:27
    I'm pretty sure in strategy I'm pretty
  • 58:29
    sure it's every bullet of China see how
  • 58:31
    they reacted they got a lot of people
  • 58:33
    I'm pretty sure everyone there knows
  • 58:35
    this is total bullshit oh no
  • 58:37
    [Music]
  • 58:44
    well you're on the topic of these crazy
  • 58:47
    things that aren't being reported here
  • 58:49
    and might as well play this this do you
  • 58:51
    know what's going on in Venezuela no
  • 58:56
    covering the BuzzFeed story but let's
  • 58:58
    play this actually is from Democracy Now
  • 59:00
    but is this is the unreported action in
  • 59:03
    Venezuela this is hot stuff the United
  • 59:05
    States and allied nations in Latin
  • 59:07
    America are ratcheting up pressure on
  • 59:09
    Venezuela and what appears to be a
  • 59:11
    coordinated effort to remove Venezuelan
  • 59:13
    president Nicolas Maduro from office
  • 59:15
    Maduro was sworn in last week to a
  • 59:18
    second six-year term following his
  • 59:20
    victory in last May's election which was
  • 59:23
    boycotted by the opposition days before
  • 59:26
    Maduro was sworn in opposition figure
  • 59:29
    Juan Guido became head of the National
  • 59:31
    Assembly which soon voted to declare
  • 59:34
    Maduro a usurper in an effort to remove
  • 59:37
    him from office the United States Brazil
  • 59:40
    and other nations have welcomed the
  • 59:42
    effort vice president Mike Pence tweeted
  • 59:45
    the u.s. strongly supports the
  • 59:47
    courageous decision by juan bueno to
  • 59:49
    declare the country's presidency vacant
  • 59:52
    on the day of Maduro is inauguration
  • 59:54
    january 10th US Secretary of State Mike
  • 59:57
    Pompeo called Guido to congratulate him
  • 1:00:00
    on his election victory to head the
  • 1:00:02
    National Assembly then national security
  • 1:00:05
    adviser John Bolton announced quote the
  • 1:00:07
    United States does not recognize
  • 1:00:09
    Venezuelan dictator Nicolas maduro's
  • 1:00:11
    illegitimate claim to power unquote
  • 1:00:14
    Brazil now led by the far-right
  • 1:00:16
    presidential year bole senado has gone a
  • 1:00:18
    step further by saying it recognizes Ron
  • 1:00:21
    Guido as the rightful president of
  • 1:00:23
    Venezuela even though Goodell himself
  • 1:00:26
    hasn't even claimed that title a group
  • 1:00:28
    of Latin American countries known as the
  • 1:00:30
    Lima group also recently voted to not
  • 1:00:32
    recognize the legitimacy of maduras
  • 1:00:35
    presidency Mexico was the sole the
  • 1:00:37
    center the us-led effort targeting the
  • 1:00:40
    oil-rich nation of Venezuela dates back
  • 1:00:42
    two decades since the late ago Chavez
  • 1:00:44
    became president in 1999
  • 1:00:48
    so there we go so we call it action now
  • 1:00:52
    now if I'm around the water cooler what
  • 1:00:54
    can I actually say I learned from that
  • 1:00:56
    well you learned that this is the
  • 1:00:58
    economic hitman always win yeah yeah
  • 1:01:04
    okay got it thanks yeah the little thing
  • 1:01:08

  • 1:03:27
    we're doing wrong and sometimes they
  • 1:03:28
    troll and also a hearty in the morning
  • 1:03:31

  • 1:03:37
    too no agenda our generator calm as his
  • 1:03:40
    contribution to the value Network for
  • 1:03:42
    episode 1104 the people's vote this was
  • 1:03:45
    our bouncy castle our bouncy castle
  • 1:03:48
    flotilla yeah he's the bait that's quite
  • 1:03:51
    a bit to get that one in yeah well there
  • 1:03:54
    were a couple other really interesting
  • 1:03:55
    ones what was what was the debate the
  • 1:03:58
    debate was we could never use this one
  • 1:04:00
    again probably all right we had another
  • 1:04:02
    one on there that thought was really
  • 1:04:04
    good it was I think it was another
  • 1:04:07
    daring one it was something that could
  • 1:04:09
    be used it sometime in the future yes
  • 1:04:12
    and so it's often when something is
  • 1:04:14
    evergreen would mean it can be used you
  • 1:04:16
    know in any situation it comes up in the
  • 1:04:19
    Congress and we often say well you know
  • 1:04:21
    what we'll remember that isn't evergreen
  • 1:04:25
    [Music]
  • 1:04:30
    and of course we always like to thank
  • 1:04:33
    our executive and our associate
  • 1:04:35
    executive producers at the top of the
  • 1:04:37
    show just like Hollywood does except we
  • 1:04:39
    honor producers unlike Hollywood and we
  • 1:04:42
    like to thank them here yeah because our
  • 1:04:48
    top rag executive producer is Hieronymus
  • 1:04:50
    of Dogpatch ah he's alive curiously we
  • 1:04:54
    well I'm we were talking about him we
  • 1:04:57
    were and we were concerned for him yeah
  • 1:05:00
    yeah cause he hadn't shown up for the
  • 1:05:02
    December Christmas season or anything or
  • 1:05:05
    New Year's even any oh he always says he
  • 1:05:08
    sends us a handwritten note or is it
  • 1:05:09
    typewritten note so it's always
  • 1:05:11
    typewritten because he doesn't want to
  • 1:05:12
    give away anything okay
  • 1:05:14
    although the printer probably has some
  • 1:05:16
    codes I should mention this to people we
  • 1:05:18
    do be mentioned this occasionally to
  • 1:05:20
    would-be counterfeiters out there that
  • 1:05:22
    all printers all modern printers print a
  • 1:05:25
    very light yellow code on every sheet of
  • 1:05:28
    paper they print which includes the
  • 1:05:30
    serial number of the printer and makes
  • 1:05:32
    it traceable if you're a counterfeit er
  • 1:05:34
    you will not see these little yellow
  • 1:05:36
    dots but they're there and that's how
  • 1:05:39
    the this is a trick that's the the
  • 1:05:41
    printer stopping the printer digging
  • 1:05:43
    deep deep stains of printers state so I
  • 1:05:47
    assume cuz this looks doesn't look like
  • 1:05:49
    a typewriter which is also traceable
  • 1:05:52
    that there's some code on here but I
  • 1:05:55
    just know it he just shouldn't send us
  • 1:05:56
    anything I was thinking she burned them
  • 1:06:02
    Burn Notice I burn the notes first very
  • 1:06:04
    good burnt the notes first more the
  • 1:06:06
    fireplace just to be sure you know what
  • 1:06:08
    I believe you believe you hey Brooke

  • 1:06:24
    best source of news in the known
  • 1:06:25
    universe this is one of his longer notes
  • 1:06:28
    the album art the jingles the clips the
  • 1:06:31
    show notes the knowledge shared and the
  • 1:06:33
    open discussion of topics avoided or
  • 1:06:35
    superficially covered by the m5m
  • 1:06:38
    continues to make this no agenda the
  • 1:06:41
    best source of information available to
  • 1:06:45
    non-contributing listeners come on
  • 1:06:49
    okay it's a new year and with your help
  • 1:06:52
    John and anima can continue to build on
  • 1:06:54
    their years of hard work to make this
  • 1:06:55
    program even better
  • 1:06:58
    Lloris LeBeau via was suffering more
  • 1:07:00
    than I expected this visit o indexing
  • 1:07:03
    domestically manufactured goods to the
  • 1:07:05
    dollar makes survival even harder I
  • 1:07:08
    don't know what countries do that but
  • 1:07:11
    Roberts going no the growing population
  • 1:07:14
    of educated use use youth youth more
  • 1:07:18
    disgruntled with the lack of local
  • 1:07:20
    opportunities we know many EU countries
  • 1:07:23
    suffer this but in poorer countries the
  • 1:07:25
    challenge is no better and perhaps more
  • 1:07:27
    dangerous Lloris LeBeau vias social
  • 1:07:30
    welfare groups outside government's
  • 1:07:33
    opposed programs are extremely modest
  • 1:07:35
    and I visited a few NGOs seem to focus
  • 1:07:38
    on education and construction places you
  • 1:07:41
    can get attention extract some cash
  • 1:07:43
    the real needy are left to the poorly
  • 1:07:45
    funded government agencies and a few
  • 1:07:47
    religious organizations and with the
  • 1:07:49
    price indexing issues the needy are
  • 1:07:52
    getting even less I had an opportunity
  • 1:07:55
    to reflect on how when you don't have
  • 1:07:57
    the safety net such as your mobile phone
  • 1:07:59
    believing you can get help at a moment's
  • 1:08:02
    notice
  • 1:08:02
    you are more thoughtful in your
  • 1:08:04
    decisions that you did I had to read
  • 1:08:07
    this yeah reread again read that again
  • 1:08:09
    it's because you have to listen nobody
  • 1:08:10
    essay he reflected on how when you don't
  • 1:08:13
    have the safety net such as your mobile
  • 1:08:16
    phone uh-huh
  • 1:08:18
    believing you can get help at a moment's
  • 1:08:20
    notice
  • 1:08:21
    you are more thoughtful in your
  • 1:08:23
    decisions well this is true and we were
  • 1:08:26
    kids we were more thoughtful because we
  • 1:08:28
    had no safety net yeah my mom said if
  • 1:08:31
    it's messed up go to a police officer
  • 1:08:33
    asking for help I don't think kids get
  • 1:08:36
    that advice anymore he's saying no
  • 1:08:37
    triple-a around to help change my tire
  • 1:08:39
    and nothing but a few wild animals in a
  • 1:08:42
    distant village to watch caused me to
  • 1:08:44
    reflect on how foolish decisions
  • 1:08:46
    increase when you don't fear for your
  • 1:08:49
    life
  • 1:08:49
    no wonder Millennials behave as they do
  • 1:08:52
    they believe there's always someone
  • 1:08:54
    available to help them when they take
  • 1:08:56
    foolish risks wow you know what they've
  • 1:08:59
    been taught that yeah
  • 1:09:03
    well the phone doesn't hurt help I am
  • 1:09:05
    sure you some games by the way I've
  • 1:09:07
    decided to to not use my navigator
  • 1:09:11
    anymore
  • 1:09:12
    oh very good this I've I've stopped
  • 1:09:14
    doing that myself yeah it's better it's
  • 1:09:17
    not just better but it doesn't tell
  • 1:09:19
    everyone where you are well besides that
  • 1:09:21
    but it's still better it's better for
  • 1:09:23
    you it's yes just as a quick aside Tina
  • 1:09:28
    and I did something for our aging
  • 1:09:30
    attention spans and brains which I would
  • 1:09:33
    recommend we built the Lego roller
  • 1:09:37
    coaster together which we were it was it
  • 1:09:41
    was a gift and we liked and we just
  • 1:09:44
    found that it's kind of fun we put the
  • 1:09:47
    whole thing together like 16 hours of
  • 1:09:49
    build and it was there it's good for
  • 1:09:52
    your brain and it was good for us as a
  • 1:09:53
    couple
  • 1:09:54
    okay yeah it was nice it was good Lego
  • 1:09:58
    therapy is pretty neat okay I will say a
  • 1:10:03
    couple of things about use not using the
  • 1:10:05
    navigator and just kind of you know you
  • 1:10:06
    look up to where the place is and then
  • 1:10:08
    you say oh I like that's where it's over
  • 1:10:09
    here over there and then you just go uh
  • 1:10:12
    is that I've been having a lot of dreams
  • 1:10:14
    of roaming around lost Wow
  • 1:10:19
    that's and you wake up in a cold sweat
  • 1:10:21
    now I wake up saying what that was dumb
  • 1:10:24
    I was lost in Berkeley because I had
  • 1:10:31
    parked my wherever your Prius Telegraph
  • 1:10:36
    Avenue and then I kept going down telega
  • 1:10:39
    up the street this wasn't Telegraph
  • 1:10:40
    Avenue was some Street I've never heard
  • 1:10:43
    we were in Oakland and then I said whoa
  • 1:10:45
    wait and they looked around I saw the
  • 1:10:47
    top dog and I really needed myself with
  • 1:10:49
    the area say ah that's a block away from
  • 1:10:51
    Telegraph we weren't supposed to be I'm
  • 1:10:53
    not supposed to over here and I went
  • 1:10:55
    down and I eventually found it - a
  • 1:10:57
    series of missed turns and miss
  • 1:10:59
    directions all in your dream yeah well
  • 1:11:02
    okay yeah definitely time to start
  • 1:11:05
    working on your map skills I've barely I
  • 1:11:10
    read an article about how learning music
  • 1:11:12
    learning a new musical instrument is
  • 1:11:14
    very good well yay yay for us yay for

    you virtuoso on the anyway
  • 1:11:24
    - dogmas I am sharing some gains from a
  • 1:11:28
    year-end market volatility John the debt
  • 1:11:32
    market crisis you watched for is about
  • 1:11:34
    Allah quiddity not credit I don't think
  • 1:11:36
    ever said it was about credit remember
  • 1:11:39
    long term although now I believe dis
  • 1:11:41
    last graph and the last thing he says he
  • 1:11:44
    writes and could we noticed this from
  • 1:11:45
    him he writes in code ISM code it may
  • 1:11:49
    not even be meant for us
  • 1:11:51
    remember long-term capital couldn't sell
  • 1:11:55
    Treasuries in their crisis December was
  • 1:11:57
    a no buyers market for debt and not
  • 1:12:00
    because borrowers were defaulting last
  • 1:12:04
    graph says Excelsior he will be missed
  • 1:12:08
    Wow we dive at dawn read three really
  • 1:12:14
    this paralyzed at night Excelsior he
  • 1:12:19
    will be missed
  • 1:12:20
    Wow did you thing that no I probably
  • 1:12:24
    should have I was trying to think who
  • 1:12:25

  • 1:12:27
    would be with I don't know what this
  • 1:12:29
    means
  • 1:12:30
    so is that a spider-man thing I hope not

    mark he will be miss that could be just
  • 1:12:54
