    hello assassination no agenda curry from
  • 0:22
    northern Silicon Valley where we're all
  • 0:25
    talking metric I'm John seed Horace and
  • 0:33
    he weasels it in go ahead talk about
  • 0:38
    metric okay here sorry I am I'm trying
  • 0:40
    to print out the clip list yes and I've
  • 0:45
    noticed in this point it's cutting off
  • 0:47
    the bottom clip I don't know if anyone's
  • 0:49
    noticed this but I've said we did you
  • 0:50
    see clip to see oh yeah you have it and
  • 0:53
    so I'm thinking yes I've noticed this
  • 0:55
    several times yeah and so I'm saying
  • 0:57
    well he should put more room at the
  • 0:59
    bottom of the page before I print and
  • 1:00
    that's just solve the issue but I got on
  • 1:03
    my nerves
  • 1:03
    cuz the thing that doesn't just doesn't
  • 1:06
    print I doesn't look right so I start
  • 1:08
    looking at all the settings and then all
  • 1:10
    of us for some reason does epson printer
  • 1:12
    it has been set and I can assure you
  • 1:16
    that in a million years I would not have
  • 1:18
    done this it's been set for a4 paper
  • 1:23
    which is that horrible longhand a goofy
  • 1:27
    looking paper that the Europeans you
  • 1:28
    it's what I grew up with it doesn't feel
  • 1:30
    bad to me no it feels awkward to me and
  • 1:34
    and and I'd also don't like the fact
  • 1:36
    that it has a name a4 instead of a
  • 1:38
    dimension which i think is more
  • 1:40
    appropriate for anything such as this
  • 1:42
    like eight-and-a-half by eleven it's
  • 1:44
    eight and a half inches by eleven inches
  • 1:46
    you know the size good what's the size
  • 1:48
    of an a4 sheet I don't know four four
  • 1:53
    separate you from reality
  • 1:57
    okay now the I'm reminded of when I was
  • 2:03
    a kid in the 60s and then again when I
  • 2:05
    was writing for I probably think was in
  • 2:08
    full world
  • 2:11
    when I was a kid I was told in high
  • 2:12
    school and uh uh you ever metric get
  • 2:17
    used to wrong on metric metric metric
  • 2:19
    metric and that didn't pan out to say
  • 2:23
    the least and then so like 20 years
  • 2:25
    later it comes up in the conversation
  • 2:27
    I'm getting all kinds of memos remember
  • 2:30
    get ready to go to a4 paper the United
  • 2:33
    States is gonna have to use a4 paper by
  • 2:36
    law because apparently you are gonna
  • 2:39
    have to do anything with the Europeans
  • 2:42
    to even talk to him or send him a sheet
  • 2:44
    or a letter or a memo it has to be on a4
  • 2:47
    paper or you'll be arrested this is
  • 2:49
    probably one of the early globalist
  • 2:51
    moves that that took place I think so
  • 2:55
    well I so I'm saying okay for paper is
  • 2:58
    dumb but okay because they you know I
  • 3:00
    had you know everyone has 8 and 1/2 by
  • 3:02
    11 nothing came of it another Bluff
  • 3:05
    which book which brings me to brexit
  • 3:07
    which i think is it I think this whole
  • 3:09
    thing that's gonna be some sort of a
  • 3:10
    horrible disaster is also a bluff okay I
  • 3:14
    I like that I like where you're going
  • 3:16
    with this I got no clips well luckily
  • 3:20
    luckily the show has a clip I got a clip
  • 3:22
    I got a clip right here I got a break
  • 3:25
    sit clip for you this was something that
  • 3:27
    was not really picked up I saw that
  • 3:28
    maybe you saw the president's Rose
  • 3:30
    Garden speech about the national
  • 3:32
    emergency yeah he had quite a little
  • 3:35
    preamble then he had some post amble as
  • 3:37
    well which is always to me the most holy
  • 3:40
    thing ambling isn't he yes he had this
  • 3:42
    to say about the UK's the UK and the US
  • 3:45
    as you probably have been seeing and
  • 3:48
    hearing we're agreeing to go forward and
  • 3:50
    preserve our trade agreement you know
  • 3:54
    all of the situation with respect to
  • 3:56
    brexit and the complexity and the
  • 3:58
    problems but we have a very good trading
  • 4:01
    relationship with UK and that's just
  • 4:03
    been strengthened further so with the UK
  • 4:07
    we're continuing our trade and we are
  • 4:10
    going to actually be increasing it very
  • 4:12
    substantially as time goes by we expect
  • 4:15
    that the UK will be very very
  • 4:17
    substantially increased as it relates to
  • 4:20
    trade with the United States the
  • 4:22
    relationship there also is very good
  • 4:24
    yes very good very more very bigger very
  • 4:26
    strong much more much much more trade
  • 4:28
    the greatest trades ever we trade we
  • 4:31
    Came we saw trod sawed traded I guess we
  • 4:36
    cut some kind of deal
  • 4:38
    yeah I'm guess we're gonna see a lot
  • 4:41
    more British jams and jellies who I
  • 4:45
    don't really have an update aren't they
  • 4:47
    in the middle of some deliberation at
  • 4:49
    the moment in the brexit process there I
  • 4:52
    think they're all in straightjackets at
  • 4:54
    this point you know it's it's kind of
  • 4:56
    sad because even if you go to your own
  • 4:58
    news you're just looking for some news
  • 4:59
    you can't really get it it's just
  • 5:01
    unbreak sits it's like yeah well you
  • 5:03
    know maybe a thing here or there just
  • 5:04
    doesn't seem like they've got anything
  • 5:08
    got nothing would make sense I did learn
  • 5:12
    something about Europe actually
  • 5:14
    something really important remember the
  • 5:18
    the news article that we had maybe two
  • 5:21
    shows ago about the Italians kicking the
  • 5:25
    French ambassador out yeah well I think
  • 5:30
    it was mutual didn't do did his begin
  • 5:33
    with the French recalling the ambassador
  • 5:36
    to Italy ah French the aggressors in
  • 5:40
    this deal no I think the Italians were
  • 5:42
    the aggressors the Italian was the
  • 5:45
    French because they worked about the
  • 5:48
    Italians this unfortunate we should know
  • 5:50
    all this they were worked about the
  • 5:52
    Italians meddling in their yellow vest
  • 5:54
    protests well that's not that wasn't I
  • 5:57
    think we hear Francis oh yeah it does
  • 6:00
    say this France is sending its
  • 6:01
    ambassador back to Italy following the
  • 6:03
    biggest diplomatic dispute between the
  • 6:05
    two countries since world war ii said
  • 6:08
    european affairs minister blah blah blah
  • 6:10
    blah they said a dramatic spat well it
  • 6:15
    turns out this has nothing to do with
  • 6:17
    the yellow vests nothing at all it has
  • 6:20
    to do with France and their involvement
  • 6:23
    in Africa and when I when I was faced
  • 6:26
    more sense yeah when I heard this this
  • 6:28
    report one of our producers sent it to
  • 6:30
    me I was like wow of course we knew this
  • 6:34
    I guess but had
  • 6:35
    maybe I didn't know it seems kind of
  • 6:37
    stupid what we do know is that the
  • 6:41
    Europeans the European Union in
  • 6:43
    particular France and Germany they have
  • 6:45
    deals with Africa we've got the the
  • 6:47
    European African what is it it's some
  • 6:50
    kind of one of these big compacts one of
  • 6:52
    these large agreements and they have
  • 6:56
    always felt that the EU cannot live
  • 6:58
    without Africa and vice versa it turns
  • 7:00
    out it's really France and when you hear
  • 7:02
    this report it's a head slapper in
  • 7:04
    January at least Deputy Prime Minister
  • 7:06
    luigi de maio accused France of fueling
  • 7:09
    the migrant crisis but controlling the
  • 7:11
    economies of former African colonies
  • 7:13
    through the local currency the CFA
  • 7:16
    France is one of those countries that by
  • 7:18
    printing money for 14 African states
  • 7:20
    prevents their economic development and
  • 7:22
    contributes to the fact that the
  • 7:24
    refugees leave and then die in the sea
  • 7:27
    or arrive on our coasts so this is the
  • 7:30
    dispute Italy is saying in this report
  • 7:34
    continues Italy is saying that because
  • 7:36
    France really controls the economy of
  • 7:39
    fort economies of 14 different African
  • 7:42
    countries that it is because of their
  • 7:46
    policy that is impoverishing these
  • 7:48
    countries and that's why the young men
  • 7:51
    are getting on boats and dying in the
  • 7:53
    seas off the coast of Italy or a lot of
  • 7:55
    them of course do make it the now lumpa
  • 7:56
    deucey and the island on the in the
  • 7:59
    south of italy and when you listen to
  • 8:02
    the control france has over 14 countries
  • 8:05
    its wealth a little background on this
  • 8:08
    we have to remember there's a lot of
  • 8:10
    French colonies in Africa and the old
  • 8:11
    clothes this is the bathroom most of
  • 8:14
    Africa if they have a second language
  • 8:15
    from their own French is French yep we
  • 8:19
    all speak French well this is the
  • 8:20
    background of the financial part of the
  • 8:22
    colonization which we either didn't know
  • 8:24
    had forgotten or is not taught the
  • 8:27
    comment came days before the start of
  • 8:28
    the presidential campaign in Senegal and
  • 8:30
    the CFA is now part of the debate with
  • 8:33
    each candidate taking positions on the
  • 8:35
    matter to some arguing for it others
  • 8:38
    against it like it Rizza sec who asks
  • 8:41
    why should white people in Paris take
  • 8:43
    decisions on their currency the Central
  • 8:46
    African franc or the CFA
  • 8:48
    a fixed exchange rate with the euro so
  • 8:51
    Europeans can bring euros to Africa and
  • 8:53
    easily swap them for the CFA but state
  • 8:57
    regulators make it difficult for
  • 8:58
    Africans to take CFA out of their
  • 9:00
    country and swap them into euros under
  • 9:03
    an arrangement dating back more than 70
  • 9:05
    years Frances central bank controls the
  • 9:07
    Treasury of all 14 countries leaving
  • 9:11
    these nations with a limited supply of
  • 9:12
    liquidity this guarantees a certain
  • 9:14
    level of stability to the currency
  • 9:16
    allowing our giant to shop at her
  • 9:18
    favorite french supermarket because
  • 9:20
    french companies profit from this
  • 9:23
    arrangement that allows them easy access
  • 9:26
    to a growing market of over a hundred
  • 9:28
    million people but there's also growing
  • 9:31
    resentment towards this currency not
  • 9:34
    just here in Senegal but throughout
  • 9:36
    francophone West Africa France get out
  • 9:40
    the graffiti found in various avenues of
  • 9:42
    the capital Sanya is behind the
  • 9:44
    messaging we want a common currency but
  • 9:47
    for West African countries only without
  • 9:49
    France's involvement why couldn't we
  • 9:52
    have our own currency like Morocco and
  • 9:54
    Algeria they are doing much better than
  • 9:56
    us France is so far yet so close while
  • 10:01
    money travels more freely than people
  • 10:03
    Europe continues to attract young
  • 10:06
    African men for Jan's family the journey
  • 10:09
    is worth the risk
  • 10:11
    so because France is the literal Federal
  • 10:17
    Reserve the central bank the printing
  • 10:19
    press for this these two African francs
  • 10:24
    they do in de facto control what's going
  • 10:28
    on so they can't inflate their currency
  • 10:30
    they can't deflate they can't do
  • 10:32
    anything well if they pay get to the
  • 10:34
    euro and then they don't they just went
  • 10:37
    one way exchange which is pretty
  • 10:39
    pathetic these countries can just what
  • 10:43
    this country's moaning I mean it's like
  • 10:45
    I'm ahead of a country I'm saying well
  • 10:47
    why can't we be like Morocco and Algeria
  • 10:49
    why don't you just become like Morocco
  • 10:52
    and Algeria and cut yourself loose from
  • 10:53
    this system yeah I think they all looked
  • 10:55
    at the Libya
  • 10:57
    and Gaddafi's like a Eurodollar kind of
  • 11:01
    or I'm sorry petro dollar scam with a
  • 11:04
    with gold based yes which is a little
  • 11:07
    more aggressive than just saying hey
  • 11:08
    we're gonna just print our own money
  • 11:09
    yeah and then all of a sudden you have
  • 11:11
    ebola in your country and you got troops
  • 11:13
    no i think they understand it's not
  • 11:15
    gonna that simple just stand up and say
  • 11:17
    no we're not gonna take it anymore
  • 11:20
    the french are pretty aggressive when it
  • 11:23
    comes to the shooting stuff up in africa
  • 11:26
    well I mean the whole piece of
  • 11:29
    information I had no knowledge of it
  • 11:31
    right and also what's interesting is
  • 11:35
    that there's really there's the CFA
  • 11:37
    franc the Central African franc and then
  • 11:40
    you have the the West African franc
  • 11:44
    ended if you will to see it as a thing
  • 11:47
    they don't it's they do have two
  • 11:49
    different currency codes at the xaf and
  • 11:52
    the XO f so XO f is for West African
  • 11:55
    franc the xaf for the central and those
  • 11:57
    two are incompatible so they're not even
  • 12:00
    allowed to be exchanged against each
  • 12:02
    other with obvious your obvious reason
  • 12:05
    you can't have them be forming a whole
  • 12:06
    block this is a piece of global history
  • 12:12
    i was i'm ROFL ii undereducated I wonder
  • 12:16
    how the French profit from this you
  • 12:19
    don't do something like this well the
  • 12:21
    report is currency now they can go in
  • 12:24
    they get to buy up all the beautiful
  • 12:26
    stuff with their euros it's easily
  • 12:28
    interchangeable they go in they build up
  • 12:30
    everything they want is a huge thing I'm
  • 12:32
    sure the trade deficit is crazy and so
  • 12:35
    they can get everything they want for
  • 12:37
    the prices there I mean it seems like a
  • 12:39
    typical banksters scheme then well why
  • 12:45
    the Italians bent out of shape all this
  • 12:47
    cuz of all the dead because the
  • 12:48
    dishwasher flow upon their Shores
  • 12:51
    I think they have a point there yeah
  • 12:53
    it's gonna get a point so yeah I kind of
  • 12:57
    I kind of thought that was I'm glad this
  • 12:59
    has been brought to light yes
  • 13:01
    new information yes new shit has come to
  • 13:03
    light man exactly okay
  • 13:08
    well we had the I guess we were pretty
  • 13:12
    much spot-on with the national emergency
  • 13:17
    declaration declared by the president we
  • 13:21
    weren't spot-on oh I think we were yeah
  • 13:24
    tell me something how we were okay well
  • 13:27
    we knew that he was going to do
  • 13:29
    something under u.s. code USC 10 code
  • 13:34
    284 right which he did and he brought in
  • 13:39
    another previously funded and
  • 13:43
    pre-approved law I'm just I'm trying I'm
  • 13:50
    just gonna get the bring us up here
  • 13:51
    which was home on a second 50 USC 1631
  • 13:58
    and then as the third part he called for
  • 14:02
    the national emergency actually that is
  • 14:05
    the section to 808 of title 10 u.s. code
  • 14:09
    the first two do not require a national
  • 14:13
    emergency to be enforced the third one I
  • 14:16
    believe that's the 2808 does require the
  • 14:20
    national emergency and in his
  • 14:21
    declaration he specifically the
  • 14:24
    president specifically states that he
  • 14:26
    will be appropriating these funds in
  • 14:28
    order so it starts with the 1601 and
  • 14:37
    then it goes to the 284 and that's about
  • 14:39
    five billion together so that's those
  • 14:43
    are just existing laws he didn't need
  • 14:44
    any national emergency and the third the
  • 14:47
    third one which will be challenged in
  • 14:49
    the court of course that does require
  • 14:53
    invocation of a national emergency so he
  • 14:57
    the way I see what was done here is
  • 15:00
    let's call the national emergency have
  • 15:02
    everyone bitch and moan and take take
  • 15:04
    the whole thing to court but it's really
  • 15:06
    for the third piece the first to go
  • 15:08
    unchallenged and can start being used
  • 15:10
    immediately
  • 15:12
    ah well so partially I would think he
  • 15:18
    would I think the other approach would
  • 15:20
    have been just to do the other without
  • 15:21
    the national emergency just push those
  • 15:23
    two elements into play yeah but I or
  • 15:27
    saying it was a distraction it's what
  • 15:29
    you're saying is the national emergency
  • 15:31
    itself was the distraction was just
  • 15:33
    attention away from the fact that he's
  • 15:34
    already got a bunch of money raised yes
  • 15:36
    yes exactly and so that probably won't
  • 15:38
    even be challenged as I'll be looking at
  • 15:40
    the national emergency I did like how he
  • 15:42
    positioned this it was one of his best
  • 15:44
    run on up talking sentences ever the
  • 15:47
    order is signed and I'll sign the final
  • 15:52
    papers as soon as I get into the Oval
  • 15:55
    Office and we will have a national
  • 15:57
    emergency and we will then be sued and
  • 16:00
    they will sue us in the Ninth Circuit
  • 16:02
    even though it shouldn't be there and we
  • 16:06
    will possibly get a bad ruling and then
  • 16:08
    we'll get another bed ruling and then
  • 16:10
    we'll end up in the Supreme Court and
  • 16:12
    hopefully we'll get a fair shake and
  • 16:14
    we'll win in the Supreme Court just like
  • 16:17
    the ban they sued us in the Ninth
  • 16:19
    Circuit and we lost and then we lost in
  • 16:22
    the Appellate Division and then we went
  • 16:24
    to the Supreme Court and we won that it
  • 16:28
    was very interesting because yesterday
  • 16:29
    they were talking about the ban because
  • 16:32
    we have a ban it's very helpful Madam
  • 16:35
    Secretary is that right without the ban
  • 16:37
    would have a bigger problem we have a
  • 16:39
    ban on certain no you get the idea he
  • 16:44
    knows exactly what's going to happen and
  • 16:46
    he doesn't care because it's for the
  • 16:48
    last three billion and he got an extra
  • 16:50
    billion through the the legislation that
  • 16:54
    came from the House and the Senate
  • 16:58
    yeah well that works out then that's
  • 17:01
    pretty sly yeah and what's interesting
  • 17:04
    is that everyone probably the only show
  • 17:06
    that would point out this this gambit
  • 17:08
    because they've talked about it on PBS
  • 17:10
    mm-hmm and they and they did have the
  • 17:13
    woman that I'll send or woman come on
  • 17:17
    and she showed the different monies and
  • 17:20
    where they're coming from but she never
  • 17:21
    put two and two together like you just
  • 17:23
    did yeah I'm sorry you know it takes you
  • 17:25
    got to be kind of dumb to get through
  • 17:27
    this stuff I think you overthink
  • 17:29
    overthink everything like most of these
  • 17:31
    jamokes do that's when you get confused
  • 17:34
    like this was NPR with wopo journalist
  • 17:39
    Karen Tumulty Tumulty I'm not sure what
  • 17:43
    her name is and she's trying to explain
  • 17:45
    even just how a national emergency is
  • 17:48
    you know it's it's not even defined
  • 17:50
    properly this is something the
  • 17:51
    president's just don't do it's you know
  • 17:53
    we have standards and we have morals and
  • 17:56
    we have the traditions and well listen
  • 17:59
    you know once again we're reminded that
  • 18:02
    the real checks on presidential power in
  • 18:05
    our system have always been norms this
  • 18:09
    is interesting to me we have absolute
  • 18:12
    checks and balances within our three
  • 18:15
    branches of government
  • 18:16
    or this what would a OSI call them the
  • 18:22
    three halls of Congress of course we
  • 18:27
    have checks and balances but she feels
  • 18:29
    this wopo journalist who would know
  • 18:31
    feels that it's only based on norms more
  • 18:35
    than laws and even Court decisions and
  • 18:38
    Donald Trump is no respecter of norms so
  • 18:42
    yes there are some checks built into the
  • 18:44
    statute if what that what the people who
  • 18:48
    wrote it figure just you know if there
  • 18:50
    was enough political pressure you might
  • 18:52
    be able to stop the president because
  • 18:54
    you could pass a resolution in one house
  • 18:57
    that would be privileged in the other
  • 18:58
    and and that we could block it but you
  • 19:02
    know it does not appear that they would
  • 19:03
    have the votes to override a
  • 19:06
    presidential veto of that legislation so
  • 19:09
    again I think the big lesson
  • 19:11
    the Trump presidency has been how much
  • 19:14
    we have depended on norms to prevent
  • 19:19
    presidential overreach and this
  • 19:20
    president you know is no respecter of
  • 19:24
    those just very briefly remind us what
  • 19:27
    you mean by norms you know give us an
  • 19:29
    example this is my favorite this is what
  • 19:32
    the clip is about just remind us what
  • 19:35
    norms are you talking about now it'll
  • 19:37
    take about 30 seconds to say nothing
  • 19:39
    that is not being respected or that's
  • 19:41
    being cast aside well it's not in every
  • 19:45
    level you even look at you know the fact
  • 19:52
    that this country will most kind of the
  • 19:57
    international systems the alliances that
  • 19:59
    we have but we see the president going
  • 20:01
    out and you know talking about pulling
  • 20:04
    out of treaties and getting out of NATO
  • 20:06
    where the norms later when you know just
  • 20:16
    presidential power I think in a way that
  • 20:19
    we have never seen at least in our
  • 20:20
    lifetimes isn't that great she does this
  • 20:27
    whole thing about the norms and the
  • 20:29
    checks and bad that she can't give one
  • 20:30
    example no wopo wobble wobble wobble
  • 20:35
    wobble wobble wobble now in case
  • 20:37
    anyone's interested I'm sure this has
  • 20:39
    been done in the mainstream if you
  • 20:40
    really want to know what national
  • 20:42
    emergencies have been quite saw one I
  • 20:44
    didn't clip it I saw one one news to
  • 20:49
    news program was showing previous
  • 20:51
    national emergencies you know they show
  • 20:53
    bush with a with around contra I'm not
  • 20:57
    quite sure what what Clinton but they
  • 21:00
    showed for Clinton then they showed 911
  • 21:02
    for Bush too and then Obama swine-flu
  • 21:07
    like that's the only flu is declared a
  • 21:11
    national emergency by Obama that's what
  • 21:13
    it let me see we'll take a look believe
  • 21:15
    that well let's work backwards June 26
  • 21:18
    2008 continuing certain restrictions
  • 21:20
    with respect to North Korea so that was
  • 21:22
    an
  • 21:22
    national emergency it's still in effect
  • 21:25
    Lebanon in 2007 still in effect blocking
  • 21:29
    property of certain persons in the
  • 21:30
    Democratic Republic of Congo which is
  • 21:32
    still in effect
  • 21:34
    Cote d'Ivoire which was terminated in
  • 21:38
    2016 Liberia which was revoked
  • 21:42
    actually is all stuff for foreign
  • 21:47
    countries in 2004 ribbiting export of
  • 21:50
    certain goods to Syria still in a
  • 21:51
    foreign country related in Mexico yes
  • 21:55
    but we don't border on Syria the rocks
  • 21:59
    are another poverty
  • 22:00
    Rasika since we're bordering on there
  • 22:02
    would be more of a national emergency
  • 22:05
    then Syria well yes but you know you
  • 22:10
    know orange man bad well we've heard
  • 22:13
    nothing but bullcrap about this being
  • 22:15
    horrible over reagent and let me play
  • 22:19
    this clip this is David Brooks and this
  • 22:21
    is on the you know the PBS Newshour
  • 22:23
    where they bring him and shields Eve old
  • 22:26
    droopy dog looking guy and they put the
  • 22:29
    two of them on there's supposed to be
  • 22:30
    two perspectives and it's always one
  • 22:33
    perspective it's the same hate Trump
  • 22:35
    perspective which is hurting the show
  • 22:38
    they need to have somebody when they ask
  • 22:40
    somebody why did Trump do this I want to
  • 22:43
    hear somebody that can explain it the
  • 22:45
    way you just did or the way somebody who
  • 22:48
    maybe thinks Trump is not a horrible
  • 22:51
    orange man explain things to give us a
  • 22:54
    balanced a kind of a balanced look at
  • 22:57
    things so we have a balance you know one
  • 23:00
    guy that's Pro and one guys against this
  • 23:02
    which would be not two guys who are well
  • 23:04
    and let's just make this very clear we
  • 23:07
    do not expect this from cable news we do
  • 23:10
    expect it from the public broadcast
  • 23:12
    system from nothing David okay well
  • 23:16
    anyway so this is Brooks are asking him
  • 23:17
    about this I just listened to this
  • 23:19
    response this is giving us no balance
  • 23:21
    whatsoever the president's announcement
  • 23:23
    today that he didn't get enough money
  • 23:25
    for to beef up the border as he wanted
  • 23:27
    and therefore he's declaring a national
  • 23:29
    emergency so that he can spend up to
  • 23:31
    eight billion dollars on it yeah well
  • 23:34
    this is awful you know I don't think it
  • 23:36
    as a
  • 23:36
    to do with this any invasion as he
  • 23:37
    claimed I think he lost the government
  • 23:40
    shutdown so he's giving himself a
  • 23:42
    performance trophy so he can say I'm a
  • 23:44
    winner I think there's more about his
  • 23:45
    psyche than anything actually in the
  • 23:47
    country and it is it is a complete
  • 23:50
    violation of any constitutional position
  • 23:52
    that any liberal or any conservative
  • 23:54
    should believe in the the Constitution
  • 23:56
    clearly states that allocations and
  • 23:58
    appropriations are the job of Cosmo I
  • 24:01
    love all these constitutional scholars
  • 24:05
    who really don't know what l here it is
  • 24:07
    Obama 2009 national emergency with
  • 24:11
    respect to the 2009 h1n1 influenza
  • 24:14
    pandemic which was never terminated by
  • 24:17
    the way and I Rex it was reading I was
  • 24:20
    reading Bush's stuff Obama has some
  • 24:24
    really good ones so that was the first
  • 24:26
    was the swine flu then it was Somalia
  • 24:30
    Libya then oh and here's the here's the
  • 24:35
    one that Trump is using blocking
  • 24:37
    property of transnational crime
  • 24:38
    organizations and that has been
  • 24:41
    continued then we go to Yemen then we go
  • 24:45
    to all interesting 2012 blocking
  • 24:48
    property of the government of the
  • 24:49
    Russian Federation relating to the
  • 24:51
    disposition of highly enriched uranium
  • 24:53
    extracted from nuclear weapons which was
  • 24:55
    revoked in 2015 just in time for them to
  • 24:58
    do that Iranian one deal then we have
  • 25:01
    Ukraine then we got South Sudan then we
  • 25:04
    got a Central African Republic I don't
  • 25:08
    remember that one
  • 25:08
    then we have Venezuela which started
  • 25:12
    2015 blocking property and suspending
  • 25:14
    entry of certain persons contributing to
  • 25:16
    the situation in Venezuela
  • 25:19
    and 2015 blocking the property of
  • 25:22
    certain persons engaging in significant
  • 25:25
    malicious cyber enabled activities and
  • 25:27
    the last one he did was Burundi so you
  • 25:29
    know this has been used a lot it's just
  • 25:30
    never for Mexico apparently or deny at
  • 25:34
    least not specifically and it still
  • 25:37
    isn't you specifically for that it's for
  • 25:38
    the transnational crime for drugs and
  • 25:41
    human trafficking and that's you know
  • 25:43
    it's it's a big distraction everyone's
  • 25:46
    running around so yeah but Isis this
  • 25:48
    might be Fox let me see what they were
  • 25:49
    saying the Constitution provides that
  • 25:54
    Congress can legislate on on these types
  • 25:56
    of issues and they have issued in 1976
  • 25:59
    the national emergencies act there is
  • 26:01
    nothing in that act that would say that
  • 26:04
    these two signing this bill as well as
  • 26:06
    declaring a national emergency act and
  • 26:08
    let me remind you that the president has
  • 26:10
    declared the national emergency under
  • 26:11
    current law before he is signing the new
  • 26:14
    bill so ex post facto in the
  • 26:16
    Constitution would dictate this national
  • 26:18
    emergency was declared under previous
  • 26:20
    law not the new bill he could well that
  • 26:25
    was pretty good actually
  • 26:26
    that might have been Fox yeah
  • 26:29
    MV MSNBC you know there was some Jim
  • 26:32
    Acosta and it was actually kind of sad I
  • 26:34
    didn't clip it just it made me sad he
  • 26:36
    had the angel moms and angel families
  • 26:39
    which I have to say I find this this use
  • 26:43
    of gold stars and angels for parents of
  • 26:47
    children who have died either is serving
  • 26:50
    in our military or for any other reason
  • 26:54
    it irks me and I'm not can't really put
  • 26:58
    my finger on your gold star mom know
  • 27:00
    your sets the whole thing is sad but
  • 27:02
    then they get a labeled gold star you
  • 27:04
    know we're next we'll have diamond moms
  • 27:06
    I know what at what else are we gonna
  • 27:08
    have for the next group of people whose
  • 27:10
    children are die and I'm anyway so he
  • 27:15
    had the he had those he had the there's
  • 27:20
    parents there and then Jim Acosta
  • 27:21
    standing up and saying well you know
  • 27:23
    crime is down and and as you know and
  • 27:26
    there was that old one where you know
  • 27:29
    people who are born here commit more
  • 27:30
    crime
  • 27:31
    I'm than the illegal immigrants yeah
  • 27:32
    bunch of criminals and then and Trump
  • 27:37
    says hey hey aren't you mom stand up and
  • 27:39
    look at him it was really uncomfortable
  • 27:42
    yeah it was felt the on one hand it felt
  • 27:45
    abusive on the other hand you know yes
  • 27:47
    go there and show that what happened to
  • 27:50
    you and I guess what he should have but
  • 27:52
    the president should have said is you
  • 27:53
    know if it was your kid Acosta how much
  • 27:55
    is that worth 1 billion 5 billion 8
  • 27:57
    billion would you care if was your kid
  • 27:59
    but the president never does that the
  • 28:03
    president could do that that's kind of
  • 28:05
    you know not what his style is what
  • 28:07
    happened these moms stand up his
  • 28:09
    pathetic - but I think the better way he
  • 28:14
    could have done this whole thing and he
  • 28:15
    should have been doing it this way the
  • 28:17
    whole time I don't get why he has and
  • 28:19
    why he's got advisors and we talked
  • 28:21
    about it before pull up those old clips
  • 28:24
    of Nancy and Feinstein and everybody in
  • 28:28
    between going on and on and on in the
  • 28:31
    past about how we need a wall and do
  • 28:34
    what Ross Perot used to do it show
  • 28:36
    examples right but in this case when
  • 28:39
    you're declaring the emergency that has
  • 28:41
    no bearing on the emergency anyway MSNBC
  • 28:47
    and this is a clip to keep an evergreen
  • 28:49
    they did confirm the actual statistic of
  • 28:52
    crime of illegal immigrants versus
  • 28:56
    citizens and Julia before we let you go
  • 28:59
    here as you and I were listening to this
  • 29:01
    you report on the Department of Homeland
  • 29:02
    Security there's nobody perhaps in our
  • 29:04
    network who knows some of these facts
  • 29:05
    and stats better than you there was a
  • 29:06
    striking moment during that news
  • 29:08
    conference when the president got into a
  • 29:10
    back-and-forth with the reporter about
  • 29:11
    whether or not he believed his own
  • 29:13
    administration's statistics when it came
  • 29:15
    to issues of immigration and you've been
  • 29:17
    listening yeah so I've got a lot of
  • 29:18
    statistics right here so let's just look
  • 29:20
    at what the reality is there it is true
  • 29:22
    that more crimes are committed by non-us
  • 29:25
    citizens than by US citizens that data
  • 29:27
    was all taken out of Texas that's one of
  • 29:29
    the only states that actually breaks it
  • 29:31
    down between immigrants and non
  • 29:32
    immigrants but that is exact based on
  • 29:34
    that
  • 29:35
    okay how inconvenient with everything
  • 29:38
    how inconvenient thanks MSNBC we always
  • 29:43
    appreciate your fact-checking
  • 29:45
    well this listen to how democracy now it
  • 29:48
    covers this thing cuz they hate it of
  • 29:51
    course and they did that guy clip two
  • 29:53
    clips but the one serve this rundown of
  • 29:55
    Thursday budget vote both the House and
  • 29:59
    Senate passed the measure Thursday that
  • 30:01
    came out of the bipartisan conference
  • 30:03
    committee earlier this week the bill
  • 30:05
    includes nearly one point four billion
  • 30:07
    dollars to build 55 miles of new border
  • 30:10
    barriers out of Steel far less than the
  • 30:13
    five point seven billion dollars
  • 30:14
    requested by President Trump Senate
  • 30:17
    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to
  • 30:18
    the Senate floor Thursday to announce
  • 30:20
    president Trump's decision to sign the
  • 30:22
    spending bill as some had speculated and
  • 30:25
    many Democrats feared McConnell
  • 30:26
    confirmed Trump's plan to declare a
  • 30:28
    national emergency an attempt to
  • 30:30
    circumvent Congress for his five point
  • 30:32
    seven billion dollars in border wolf
  • 30:34
    funding I've just had an opportunity to
  • 30:37
    speak with President Trump and he would
  • 30:39
    say to all my colleagues indicated he's
  • 30:41
    prepared to sign the bill he will also
  • 30:44
    be issuing a national emergency
  • 30:45
    declaration at the same time and I've
  • 30:48
    indicated to him that I'm going to
  • 30:50
    prepare I'm going to support the
  • 30:52
    national emergency declaration so follow
  • 30:56
    my colleagues the president will sign
  • 30:58
    the bill we'll be voting on it shortly
  • 31:01
    McConnell's valid supporting one what
  • 31:05
    happened to her did she's choked she
  • 31:07
    choked right there you heard it yeah on
  • 31:10
    the bill we'll be voting on it shortly
  • 31:13
    McConnell's vow of support came despite
  • 31:16
    reports that he warned Trump against the
  • 31:19
    move saying it could split the
  • 31:20
    Republican Party and prompt a resolution
  • 31:22
    disapproving the emergency declaration
  • 31:25
    Democrats quickly condemned the news
  • 31:27
    this is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did I
  • 31:30
    say I was final challenge I may that's
  • 31:34
    an option and we'll review our options
  • 31:36
    but it's important to know that when the
  • 31:38
    president declares this emergency first
  • 31:41
    of all it's not an emergency what's
  • 31:43
    happening at the border it's manatorian
  • 31:46
    challenge to us the president has tried
  • 31:48
    to sell a bill of goods to America but
  • 31:50
    putting that aside just in terms of the
  • 31:53
    president making an end run around
  • 31:54
    Congress Trump is set to speak this
  • 31:59
    morning at 10 a.m. if he declares a
  • 32:00
    national emergency the consumer rights
  • 32:02
    nonprofit public citizen is valid legal
  • 32:05
    action against him saying the move quote
  • 32:07
    will constitute an outrageous abuse of
  • 32:09
    power perhaps the most dangerous yet by
  • 32:11
    the unstable and increasingly autocratic
  • 32:13
    president Trump most dangerous yet they
  • 32:18
    have this guy come on who runs this
  • 32:20
    operation - public - whatever it's
  • 32:22
    called and I just think he tries to coin
  • 32:25
    a new way of describing the wall and
  • 32:28
    this is part - this is kind of
  • 32:30
    interesting see if you can catch this so
  • 32:32
    explain what this national emergency
  • 32:34
    resolution would do well we don't know
  • 32:36
    and we're not going to know until the
  • 32:37
    president acts but it seems as what he's
  • 32:39
    gonna claim is that there is a national
  • 32:40
    emergency at the border and that
  • 32:42
    therefore he can move money around that
  • 32:46
    has not been appropriated for the
  • 32:47
    purposes of building the racist wall -
  • 32:49
    in fact there is a legal structure in
  • 32:54
    place for what it for how to declare an
  • 32:55
    emergency and president does have
  • 32:57
    authority under other laws to move money
  • 33:00
    around if in fact there is a national
  • 33:02
    emergency but we're gonna sue again
  • 33:05
    based on what he does but challenging
  • 33:06
    the idea there's an emergency and also
  • 33:09
    challenging whether the way he's moving
  • 33:11
    the money is legal under the the
  • 33:13
    statutes that exist but the real big
  • 33:16
    issue is going to be whether people turn
  • 33:18
    out in droves to protest this and say
  • 33:21
    not only do we not want a wall but we
  • 33:24
    don't want the president declaring
  • 33:25
    emergencies to get around the will of
  • 33:27
    Congress if this president is able to
  • 33:29
    declare an emergency to build a wall
  • 33:31
    around a fictitious claim of urgency
  • 33:34
    against the express interest of the can
  • 33:37
    spread sixth intent of Congress there's
  • 33:39
    really no limit to what he might do in
  • 33:41
    the future with an emergency declaration
  • 33:43
    so if you're white and you climb the
  • 33:46
    wall it's okay because the wall is on
  • 33:48
    your side yeah racist wall stuck with
  • 33:53
    that moniker because he def did a couple
  • 33:55
    of times
  • 33:56
    three times ladies all that's different
  • 33:58
    you know what Nancy Pelosi has done and
  • 34:01
    you know cuz she's trying to follow with
  • 34:04
    this meme of somehow hey we're number
  • 34:06
    one in the Constitution it's all about
  • 34:08
    us first and we only we can appropriate
  • 34:11
    the money and she sent around a
  • 34:13
    spreadsheet with about 400 different
  • 34:16
    entries of pieces of money that will now
  • 34:19
    no longer go to of course funding our
  • 34:22
    men and women who fight so bravely for
  • 34:24
    us and like some maintenance issue for
  • 34:27
    the f-35 which I don't think is in full
  • 34:29
    service as like some of that's being
  • 34:32
    used and you know so they're trying that
  • 34:35
    this is this is not a winning strategy I
  • 34:37
    don't think people care about about it
  • 34:39
    this way like oh well it was supposed to
  • 34:41
    go to two you know one screw in the
  • 34:45
    Joint Strike Fighter right now so I
  • 34:49
    think she just gave it up and lost let
  • 34:52
    it go well I had I have one last clip
  • 34:55
    which segues into something else unless
  • 34:57
    you want to talk more about have one
  • 34:59
    funny clip from Menendez yes Senator Bob
  • 35:03
    Menendez Democrat from New Jersey he
  • 35:06
    seemed to when this came down he was
  • 35:08
    being interviewed if he just went off
  • 35:10
    his rocker the deputy director of Isis
  • 35:13
    says a cap on beds and his words would
  • 35:16
    be quote extremely damaging to the
  • 35:18
    public safety of this country how do you
  • 35:20
    respond the reason that they are already
  • 35:23
    8,000 over their budgeted amount so
  • 35:26
    they're violating the budget is because
  • 35:28
    of the president's zero-tolerance policy
  • 35:31
    that has turned everyone regardless of
  • 35:34
    their record into a criminal for example
  • 35:39
    if you cross the border undocumented he
  • 35:42
    has now made you a criminal he is
  • 35:45
    creating that problem by turning people
  • 35:47
    away who legitimately seek asylum if a
  • 35:49
    person has a driving while under the
  • 35:52
    influence violation he is now making
  • 35:54
    that saying that that's a criminal what
  • 35:57
    we have seen and that's just outrageous
  • 35:59
    these are not the norms that we stand
  • 36:02
    for and in the past under for example
  • 36:04
    President Obama yeah he's saying he's
  • 36:06
    know if you can if you eye is not
  • 36:10
    he's saying if you're illegally here and
  • 36:13
    you get caught while driving under the
  • 36:14
    influence now you're a criminal he's
  • 36:16
    making you a criminal orange man bad
  • 36:18
    what am I gonna do yeah that's that's
  • 36:21
    what he's saying
  • 36:22
    I know it's jaw-dropping
  • 36:27
    I see it in what can you do this is a
  • 36:34
    senator this is senator from New Jersey
  • 36:36
    yeah all right all right so I have the
  • 36:41
    now I got a thing I want to segue into
  • 36:43
    something it's which is a law
  • 36:44
    educational we do this on the show once
  • 36:47
    in a while and I thought it would be a
  • 36:49
    good time to do this because it cops up
  • 36:52
    on a PBS report about the wall with the
  • 36:56
    Allison door a woman that one who just
  • 36:58
    replaced kind of replaced Ifill although
  • 37:01
    she doesn't have the chops her name is
  • 37:03
    Allison Dora that's her name Isha it
  • 37:06
    almost sounds like a think-tank when you
  • 37:08
    say the Alcindor woman I'm like what's
  • 37:10
    think-tank is that there's her name okay
  • 37:12
    got it
  • 37:12
    so this is the huge play this is wall
  • 37:16
    money acts PBS okay I could do the wall
  • 37:21
    over a longer period of time I didn't
  • 37:22
    need to do this but I'd rather do it
  • 37:25
    much faster we had certain funds that
  • 37:27
    are being used at the discretion of
  • 37:32
    generals at the discretion of the
  • 37:33
    military some of them haven't been
  • 37:35
    allocated yet and some of the generals
  • 37:38
    think that this is more important I was
  • 37:41
    speaking to a couple of them they think
  • 37:43
    this is far more important than what
  • 37:44
    they were going to use it for I said
  • 37:45
    what were you going to use it for and I
  • 37:47
    won't go into details but didn't sound
  • 37:49
    too important to me so you me hearing
  • 37:51
    that where exactly is the president
  • 37:54
    pulling this money from well the
  • 37:56
    president is saying that I know best how
  • 37:58
    to use these military funds to keep
  • 38:00
    Americans safe so I want to walk you
  • 38:02
    through where he's getting the eight
  • 38:03
    billion dollars that he's going to
  • 38:04
    initially be using to fund a wall on the
  • 38:06
    southern border he's going to be getting
  • 38:08
    one point three seven five billion
  • 38:10
    dollars from the Congressional Deal that
  • 38:11
    Congress passed this week to avert a
  • 38:13
    government shutdown he's going to be
  • 38:15
    getting six hundred million dollars from
  • 38:16
    the Department of Treasury forfeiture
  • 38:18
    fund that's money that that it's gotten
  • 38:20
    from seized and vacated assets he's also
  • 38:22
    gonna be getting
  • 38:23
    2.5 billion dollars from the Department
  • 38:25
    of Defense counterdrug activities that's
  • 38:28
    drugs she's or she's or money he's also
  • 38:30
    going to be using 3.6 billion dollars
  • 38:32
    from military construction money and
  • 38:34
    that's Defense Fund money that's also
  • 38:35
    from the Department of Defense and all
  • 38:37
    of this is to fund an initial 234 miles
  • 38:40
    of wall on the southern border the White
  • 38:42
    House stressed today that this is just
  • 38:44
    the beginning they could ask for more
  • 38:45
    money
  • 38:45
    Thanks it could ask for more money they
  • 38:53
    have the ISO of if you want to hear it
  • 38:55
    again just yeah yeah yeah could actually
  • 38:57
    money jeez you know I heard Jordan
  • 39:01
    Peterson the other day say anyways
  • 39:04
    that's a professor attention because of
  • 39:11
    what she said earlier so it perked me up
  • 39:13
    when she said gotten got an axe
  • 39:15
    she's very unprofessional for at this
  • 39:17
    level of broadcasting I'm just gonna put
  • 39:20
    it maybe I mean nobody wants to say
  • 39:22
    anything about the woman because she's
  • 39:24
    you know black but she's unprofessional
  • 39:26
    and she also is involved in all kinds of
  • 39:29
    political stuff she's giving speeches
  • 39:31
    and a lot of rallies and things like
  • 39:33
    that she shouldn't be out there like
  • 39:34
    like that at all but to give her the
  • 39:36
    benefit of the doubt on axe which i
  • 39:39
    think is not a broad kappa broadcasters
  • 39:42
    should accept the use of the use of that
  • 39:43
    word that way but it's legit what now I
  • 39:48
    have I have a long thing this is three
  • 39:50
    minutes but it's very educational this
  • 39:54
    is the NPR lecture on axe versus oh my
  • 39:59
    god okay hold on a second so several
  • 40:01
    years ago we started identifying this
  • 40:04
    popping up amongst white Millennials and
  • 40:08
    it came from urban America let me ask
  • 40:11
    you something yo bro let me ask you
  • 40:12
    something
  • 40:13
    mainly black but it traveled all over
  • 40:15
    but I would say really mainly urban
  • 40:17
    blacks and you know and of course that
  • 40:20
    carried on to you know people in the
  • 40:23
    mainstream like jay-z and and you know a
  • 40:26
    lot of the hip hoppers all say axe and
  • 40:28
    you hear it in award shows them in and
  • 40:30
    you see it on television and now you're
  • 40:32
    gonna tell me I guess it's okay
  • 40:34
    well no wait I'm not gonna say it's okay
  • 40:37
    and I don't think it's okay and the
  • 40:38
    broadcast since that's for sure should
  • 40:40
    not be on a news show but in fact it's
  • 40:45
    okay about the word ask it's not
  • 40:48
    uncommon to hear that word pronounced
  • 40:50
    acts too many that's a mispronunciation
  • 40:53
    but can I just guess can I kind of just
  • 40:56
    guess I'm going to guess that you're
  • 40:59
    guessing well I'm gonna guess what this
  • 41:01
    what this clip is about could this clip
  • 41:03
    be about the sad fact that many people
  • 41:06
    are dyslexic and go untreated no no as
  • 41:11
    in piers Shireen Marysol merace reports
  • 41:13
    X is as old as English itself ax has
  • 41:17
    gotten a bad rap if you say ax it's
  • 41:20
    often assumed you're poor you're black
  • 41:22
    you're uneducated New York City's first
  • 41:25
    african-american school's chancellor put
  • 41:27
    the word on his list of speech demons to
  • 41:30
    be eradicated it's the most noticeable
  • 41:32
    term in african-american isms that's
  • 41:35
    Gerard McClendon education professor and
  • 41:37
    the author of axe or ask the
  • 41:40
    african-american guide to better English
  • 41:43
    McClendon says his parents taught him
  • 41:44
    there's a time and a place to use axe
  • 41:46
    because they were well aware of it
  • 41:48
    stigma when you're with your little
  • 41:50
    friends you can speak any way you want
  • 41:52
    to speak all right well the minute you
  • 41:54
    get in a spelling bee or in a job
  • 41:56
    interview switch it up quick I've taught
  • 41:59
    my children to do that as well if it
  • 42:01
    happens four times in a sentence
  • 42:03
    probably gonna get two axis tasks sketch
  • 42:06
    comedy duo keegan-michael key and Jordan
  • 42:08
    Peele joke that because they're
  • 42:10
    mixed-race they're constantly switching
  • 42:12
    back and forth from acts staff yeah when
  • 42:16
    a cop comes up to you death not if you
  • 42:18
    got four asks and that's it you're gonna
  • 42:20
    go for it on my way officer ask whatever
  • 42:22
    you want to ask me I'm more than happy
  • 42:24
    to answer officer is that the only
  • 42:26
    question you wanted to access I'm Jesse
  • 42:28
    Schell our
  • 42:28
    I'm the president of the American
  • 42:30
    dialect Society I believe I'm here to
  • 42:31
    talk about the historical pronunciation
  • 42:33
    of Acts for ask has been used since the
  • 42:37
    eighth century and derives from the old
  • 42:40
    english verb axion that the people who
  • 42:42
    use the ax pronunciation are using the
  • 42:45
    pronunciation that has been handed down
  • 42:47
    in an unbroken
  • 42:48
    for a thousand years it is not a new
  • 42:50
    thing it is not a mistake it is a
  • 42:53
    regular feature of English Chaucer used
  • 42:55
    ax it's in the first complete English
  • 42:58
    translation of the Bible the Coverdale
  • 43:00
    Bible acts and it shall be given so at
  • 43:03
    that point it wasn't a mark of people
  • 43:06
    who weren't highly educated or people
  • 43:08
    who were in the working class that
  • 43:09
    Stanford linguist John Rickford Rickford
  • 43:12
    says it's hard to pinpoint why Acts
  • 43:13
    stopped being popular but stayed put in
  • 43:15
    the American South and the Caribbean
  • 43:17
    where he's originally from over time it
  • 43:20
    became a kind of marker of identity
  • 43:23
    Indians in South Africa use axe black
  • 43:26
    Caribbeans use axe African Americans use
  • 43:29
    axe Rickford says it's the Empire
  • 43:32
    striking back taking language that has
  • 43:35
    been imposed and making it your own I
  • 43:38
    don't think any linguists at least is
  • 43:39
    advocating that you get rid of your
  • 43:42
    vernacular because you need it in a
  • 43:45
    sense for your soul Rickford says
  • 43:46
    there's nothing technically wrong with
  • 43:48
    axe but he adds linguistic versatility
  • 43:50
    is ideal interchanging axe and ask
  • 43:53
    depending on the setting code-switching
  • 43:55
    he says few know about axes Chaucerian
  • 43:58
    roots so take qian peels advice when
  • 44:02
    getting pulled over on officer ask
  • 44:05
    whatever you want to ask me I'm more
  • 44:06
    than happy to answer officer Srimati so
  • 44:09
    Mirage II NPR news hmm well this is
  • 44:14
    interesting
  • 44:15
    yes the black urban experience
  • 44:20
    apparently is Chaucerian Chaucerian from
  • 44:24
    Chaucer that's where he used axe all the
  • 44:26
    time hmm well so what this does is it
  • 44:31
    says that old old old uses of words are
  • 44:35
    all you ye olde use of words are that
  • 44:40
    can be considered valid yeah so if I can
  • 44:44
    say hey that's gay then that will be
  • 44:47
    okay cuz I just mean it's happy and
  • 44:48
    funny and etc if it was happy and funny
  • 44:51
    if it was happy and funny I don't know
  • 44:54
    about this man and by the way the white
  • 44:57
    that so this is an interesting example
  • 44:59
    because while you may have a
  • 45:01
    black driver say ask away officer and
  • 45:07
    then maybe accidentally say anything
  • 45:09
    else you want to axe the white driver
  • 45:12
    would say yes
  • 45:14
    anything you want ossifer see they have
  • 45:16
    their own issues super white guys say
  • 45:19
    awesome for one they yes well this
  • 45:24
    brings me to the islands since it came
  • 45:27
    up good by the way that was good John
  • 45:28
    I'm still gonna say ask if you don't
  • 45:30
    mind and I would still chastise anyone
  • 45:32
    for saying ax is reachable I don't think
  • 45:35
    it's a it's certainly in broadcast let's
  • 45:37
    put it that way yeah that's the woke way
  • 45:42
    we had this clip of April Ryan and Don
  • 45:47
    Lemon arguing about the blackness of
  • 45:50
    camel Kamala Harris its back to Kamal I
  • 45:52
    guess
  • 45:53
    Kamala canal like come on I'm all about
  • 45:56
    you say Kamala I say Kamala now as you
  • 45:59
    know I've stayed it's a it's fine she's
  • 46:02
    brown she's black whatever but she's not
  • 46:04
    african-american because she was
  • 46:06
    although she was born here she was
  • 46:08
    raised in in Ottawa her father is from
  • 46:11
    Jamaica her mother is from India she's a
  • 46:14
    Tamil so you know she really does not
  • 46:17
    have african-american blood in her and
  • 46:20
    this began Don Lemon takes my side of
  • 46:23
    the argument
  • 46:23
    oddly enough April Ryan trips out about
  • 46:27
    it and starts to bring in all kinds of
  • 46:28
    stuff about Jamaican slavery a review of
  • 46:31
    that clip let me finish hold on I'm not
  • 46:34
    falling into a trap about it when she
  • 46:36
    imposed on her lineage many Africans
  • 46:39
    landed on in Jamaica and all these other
  • 46:42
    Caribbean islands so she couldn't do
  • 46:43
    because merica mixed with other words
  • 46:45
    machines because not America but she is
  • 46:52
    now I got it first I got a note from Sir
  • 46:56
    John EB who says excuse me the history
  • 47:00
    of slavery and oppression is just as
  • 47:02
    long in Jamaica as it and bloody as it
  • 47:05
    is in the US after the populace rose up
  • 47:08
    and claimed independence that people are
  • 47:10
    kept down by leaders who were in bed
  • 47:11
    with the economic hitman F Don Lemon
  • 47:14
    hardship
  • 47:15
    I write on the flag in Jamaica gold
  • 47:18
    recalls the shining Sun black reflects
  • 47:20
    hardships and green represents the land
  • 47:22
    the flag colors are gold green and black
  • 47:25
    the Rastafarian flag adds red for the
  • 47:27
    bloodshed this guy is an ignorant a hole
  • 47:29
    and the well that's true wasn't really
  • 47:33
    on topic until I received this just this
  • 47:37
    morning it is a chapter and it may be
  • 47:41
    the hole may just be an essay I don't
  • 47:43
    know it was a I think it's from a book
  • 47:45
    the title of the book is reflections of
  • 47:48
    a Jamaican father does this remind you
  • 47:51
    of anything
  • 47:52
    yeah it sounds like Obama's book
  • 47:54
    reflects yes reflections of a Jamaican
  • 47:57
    father by Donald J Harris
  • 48:00
    this is Kamala's dad now if this if we
  • 48:04
    were in on a mainstream news program
  • 48:06
    this might actually be some pretty big
  • 48:08
    news when I'm gonna read to you do not
  • 48:10
    expect to hear this anywhere but here I
  • 48:12
    will read only two paragraphs as a child
  • 48:16
    growing up in Jamaica I often heard it
  • 48:17
    said by my parents and family and
  • 48:19
    friends member we are commenting you to
  • 48:23
    retain the deep social awareness and
  • 48:25
    strong sense of identity which that
  • 48:28
    grassroots Jamaican philosophy fed in me
  • 48:30
    as a father I naturally sought to
  • 48:32
    develop the same sensibilities in my two
  • 48:34
    daughters born and bred in America
  • 48:36
    Kamala was the first in line to have it
  • 48:38
    planted Maya came two years later and
  • 48:40
    had the advantage of an older sibling as
  • 48:42
    a mentor it is for them to say
  • 48:44
    truthfully now not me what if anything
  • 48:46
    of value they carried from that early
  • 48:48
    experience into adulthood my one big
  • 48:51
    regret is that they did not come to know
  • 48:53
    the very to know very well the two most
  • 48:56
    influential women in my life miss
  • 48:58
    Chrissy and miss iris my roots you see

  • 49:08

  • 51:37
    heckler now when a heckler when you're

  • 52:56
    of kindergartners on career day no I
  • 52:59
    think you nailed it I've always wondered
  • 53:01
    what is wrong with this woman she talks
  • 53:05
    as if she's the schoolteacher
  • 53:07
    introducing herself to a new class of
  • 53:09
    fourth graders or fifth graders yeah and
  • 53:12
    then when they get uppity she goes be
  • 53:14
    easy be easy it's take it easy Liz be
  • 53:19
    easy she's no she's very much like a
  • 53:24
    marm a schoolmarm man now what I have
  • 53:27
    lots of questions I've gotten together
  • 53:31
    my handicapping handicap list yeah you
  • 53:34
    know she's on the bay list but she can
  • 53:36
    you know can you even can you even use
  • 53:38
    the term handicap for anything to be a
  • 53:41
    for horses you can't form any betting
  • 53:44
    phenomenon no it's one of those words
  • 53:48
    man
  • 53:53
    [Music]
  • 53:57
    I wanted to start with today and notice
  • 54:07
    that we get that idiot out of here now
  • 54:11
    that would be too much like Trump that
  • 54:12
    would be wrong we have norms in this
  • 54:14
    country
  • 54:14
    norm norm you have known were sitting at
  • 54:17
    the bar yeah we got norms in this
  • 54:19
    country yeah I had no other gaps that I
  • 54:22
    found from any other any other people
  • 54:27
    well I've got a couple I get the one
  • 54:30
    clip that I wanted to get out of the way
  • 54:31
    which is do you know what's going on in
  • 54:34
    Haiti right now it's not being much
  • 54:36
    reported yeah I of course I've been
  • 54:37
    following it and even producers who
  • 54:40
    track Haiti for us also been kind of
  • 54:44
    coming up empty-handed
  • 54:46
    other than the main question what
  • 54:49
    happened to the hundreds of millions of
  • 54:51
    dollars the Clintons raised all the good
  • 54:54
    stuff they did the all that all the
  • 54:57
    people they put into government the
  • 55:00
    baseball making factory the basket
  • 55:03
    weaving factory the new Clinton hotel
  • 55:05
    and resort what happened all of that but
  • 55:09
    this apparently they've gotten come up
  • 55:11
    with a scheme to marginalize those
  • 55:13
    numbers because it seems as if Venezuela
  • 55:17
    is now the bad guy oh three billion
  • 55:22
    dollars for more than a week the island
  • 55:25
    nation of Haiti has been rocked by
  • 55:26
    street violence as protesters angry over
  • 55:28
    soaring inflation and government
  • 55:30
    corruption have demanded the ouster of
  • 55:32
    President jovenel moise
  • 55:33
    demonstrators have been blocking roads
  • 55:35
    stoning emergency vehicles and
  • 55:37
    destroying businesses the US State
  • 55:39
    Department has raised the travel warning
  • 55:41
    to the country advising citizens not to
  • 55:43
    travel there and is asking all
  • 55:45
    non-emergency US personnel and their
  • 55:48
    families to leave Jacqueline Charles is
  • 55:50
    the Caribbean correspondent for the
  • 55:51
    Miami Herald and she joins us now from
  • 55:53
    Miami explain a little bit more about
  • 55:54
    what these protests are about well these
  • 55:58
    protests are basically about two issues
  • 56:00
    corruption and the economic turmoil that
  • 56:03
    is hitting hating currently let's start
  • 56:05
    with the issue of corruption patients
  • 56:07
    today are saying that they are fed up
  • 56:09
    with decades of the
  • 56:10
    in corruption and they are particularly
  • 56:12
    pointing to a program that was financed
  • 56:15
    by Venezuela it was a discount oil
  • 56:17
    program called Petrocaribe
  • 56:19
    in which Haiti receives oil at a
  • 56:21
    discount price from Venezuela they
  • 56:23
    didn't have to pay it back until over 25
  • 56:25
    years and they received it at a 1%
  • 56:27
    interest rates but that savings was
  • 56:29
    supposed to be used for social programs
  • 56:32
    to ameliorate the situation of the
  • 56:34
    population in terms of healthcare
  • 56:36
    childcare education you name it that was
  • 56:40
    the feeling housing after the earthquake
  • 56:42
    while almost 10 years after that
  • 56:43
    earthquake Haitians say they do not see
  • 56:46
    where that money has been spent and
  • 56:48
    today they owe the country olds
  • 56:51
    Venezuela almost two billion dollars and
  • 56:54
    so for months we have seen Haitians on
  • 56:56
    social media and in the country
  • 56:58
    demanding to know where is the money
  • 57:00
    where is the Petrocaribe money the
  • 57:02
    inflation rate is 15 percent the
  • 57:04
    government's deficit is eighty nine
  • 57:06
    point six million dollars and their
  • 57:08
    local currency the good is in a freefall
  • 57:11
    against a strong US dollar so today what
  • 57:14
    we've seen is that four days now over a
  • 57:16
    week they have had this country on
  • 57:18
    lockdown no schools no businesses
  • 57:20
    nothing is moving and so where is this
  • 57:23
    going what's gonna happen next that's
  • 57:24
    what's uncertain unclear at this moment
  • 57:28
    is it's almost almost feels like hey we
  • 57:33
    let's get rid of all the crap while we
  • 57:35
    can it's like if anyone uncovers hate
  • 57:38
    he'll yeah bill if anyone really finds
  • 57:41
    out what went on in Haiti and what we
  • 57:43
    really did there it's gonna be bad so
  • 57:45
    maybe we should defend his way the
  • 57:46
    things we can we blame something on
  • 57:48
    Venezuela I get the same sense but that
  • 57:53
    it's like an economic hitman thing where
  • 57:57
    somebody has schemed this whole thing
  • 57:59
    because I never heard any of this and
  • 58:02
    the next thing you know and now
  • 58:04
    apparently there are did that the second
  • 58:05
    half of this report is only a little bit
  • 58:07
    of the whole thing anyway and this guy
  • 58:09
    who does the Saturday PBS Newshour Harry
  • 58:14
    Srinivasan is really the best guy they
  • 58:18
    have and they should they pushed him out
  • 58:20
    of the regular weekly show so they could
  • 58:22
    have pretty much a bunch of em
  • 58:24
    chores in there and this guy's really a
  • 58:27
    very very professional character and I
  • 58:30
    like his Saturday show a lot better than
  • 58:31
    during the week it's only a half an hour
  • 58:33
    to the news hours a half hour and he
  • 58:37
    does much more in-depth stuff and it
  • 58:38
    comes up with things I've never heard of
  • 58:40
    who's but they go on with this and they
  • 58:42
    they have some people have up MIT people
  • 58:44
    look from this you know that live there
  • 58:46
    saying I can get on my house I'm just
  • 58:48
    friend we get shot he was implicated in
  • 58:51
    some of this corruption is President now
  • 58:53
    on the hook for some of the corruption
  • 58:56
    that happened perhaps even in the
  • 58:58
    administration before him well yes this
  • 59:01
    president here he was brought into power
  • 59:03
    under the banner of PhD K that is the
  • 59:06
    party of former president of Michel
  • 59:07
    Martelly and his party is very well
  • 59:10
    implicated in this corruption as well as
  • 59:12
    people who are among the advisers to the
  • 59:15
    president even the president's former
  • 59:16
    chief of staff the President himself has
  • 59:18
    been named in a report an initial report
  • 59:21
    that was issued by the government
  • 59:22
    auditors in terms of his company having
  • 59:25
    received some of this funding from
  • 59:27
    Venezuela but I have to tell you there
  • 59:29
    are real frustrations and real anger in
  • 59:31
    Haiti especially by the young people and
  • 59:33
    when I say young I'm talking about
  • 59:35
    individuals in their 20s 30s and 40s who
  • 59:37
    today see no hope they see no way out
  • 59:39
    they increasingly not believing in the
  • 59:42
    ballot box and so there's a huge apathy
  • 59:45
    when it comes to elections and so you've
  • 59:47
    seen this that even the woman on the
  • 59:49
    street is selling charcoal every time
  • 59:51
    something goes wrong she's saying you
  • 59:52
    know what it's because the Petrocaribe
  • 59:54
    but the unfortunate reality is today
  • 59:56
    that prices have gone up there is a
  • 59:59
    brewing humanitarian crisis hospital
  • 1:00:01
    zone not having the supplies that they
  • 1:00:03
    need and once this is all over the
  • 1:00:06
    question is even if presidential vanilla
  • 1:00:07
    louise doesn't leave will he be able to
  • 1:00:10
    govern and if he does go what is the
  • 1:00:12
    plan of the opposition we have not heard
  • 1:00:14
    anything from them in terms of how they
  • 1:00:16
    are going to alleviate the fundamental
  • 1:00:19
    issue which is the economic crisis that
  • 1:00:21
    the Haitian population is enduring right
  • 1:00:22
    now this is the so it's almost a replay
  • 1:00:25
    if you recall Haiti had a very odd
  • 1:00:27
    earthquake which only really affected
  • 1:00:30
    Haiti nothing attached to Haiti
  • 1:00:34
    it was very shallow and immediately the
  • 1:00:37
    Clintons
  • 1:00:38
    in there everywhere building stuff
  • 1:00:40
    bringing in their buddies with cellular
  • 1:00:43
    networks for micro payments creating
  • 1:00:46
    this this whole deepwater port for
  • 1:00:51
    cruise ships it's almost like a replay
  • 1:00:54
    just like I was we got all kinds of
  • 1:00:56
    stuff going on it's gonna be horrible we
  • 1:00:58
    come in we start to fix it
  • 1:00:59
    there's here's a clip from 2015 it's one
  • 1:01:03
    of the more recent when we recent ones
  • 1:01:05
    we have about the Clinton Clinton
  • 1:01:07
    Foundation and Haiti more than ten
  • 1:01:09
    billion dollars was donated
  • 1:01:10
    internationally to help rebuild Haiti
  • 1:01:12
    but much of that money is gone maybe
  • 1:01:15
    this is the problem only nine hundred
  • 1:01:17
    homes were built and they were not even

    northern part of the country so much
  • 1:01:25
    inconsistencies so much irregularity as
  • 1:01:28
    I'm talking to you right now they are a
  • 1:01:29
    hundred thousand people in tents in
  • 1:01:31
    power plants well in Harlem people raise
  • 1:01:33
    their voices to call attention to the
  • 1:01:35
    missing money this protest outside of
  • 1:01:38
    the offices of the Clinton Foundation
  • 1:01:40
    which helped lead the reconstruction
  • 1:01:42
    fund these people they are still in very
  • 1:01:45
    difficult conditions still living under
  • 1:01:47
    tents while Bill Clinton and his cronies
  • 1:01:51
    they waste this money the foundation
  • 1:01:55
    says progress is being made particularly
  • 1:01:57
    in Haiti's economic and tourist
  • 1:01:58
    industries but many Haitian Americans
  • 1:02:00
    say contracts were awarded to non
  • 1:02:03
    Haitian companies the Capitals main
  • 1:02:04
    hospital is still not fixed and cholera
  • 1:02:07
    is on the rise the Twitter of the
  • 1:02:09
    expansion is something that people live
  • 1:02:12
    with on a daily basis the suffering in
  • 1:02:14
    Haiti continuing to dominate the
  • 1:02:16
    conversation
  • 1:02:16
    five years later yeah I'm gonna you know
  • 1:02:20
    I'm gonna do this week before the net
  • 1:02:21
    before Thursday I'm gonna get together
  • 1:02:23
    cuz if so this used to be my beat we
  • 1:02:27
    studied Haiti very intently and it was
  • 1:02:30
    years before the mainstream really did
  • 1:02:32
    anything about it all it's like
  • 1:02:33
    earthquake bad move on we had been with
  • 1:02:35
    sweet Micky Martelli come in which was
  • 1:02:38
    the Clinton stooge and then he got
  • 1:02:39
    kicked out and they kept trying to bring
  • 1:02:41
    other people in to become president and
  • 1:02:43
    there was ten billion dollars raised
  • 1:02:46
    which clearly did not go into the
  • 1:02:48
    economy
  • 1:02:48
    no it disappeared like they said in that
  • 1:02:51
    report
  • 1:02:51
    in 2015 yeah yeah yeah it's I really
  • 1:02:57
    don't know much else that other than it
  • 1:02:59
    sounds exactly just like a repeat a
  • 1:03:01
    repeat of what was going on then that's
  • 1:03:05
    actually if you look at the videos it
  • 1:03:07
    looks a lot worse well I promise to have
  • 1:03:11

    unfiltered guy good to show it that
  • 1:06:45
    which was the competitor this show
  • 1:06:47
    I wouldn't say competitor I think it was
  • 1:06:50
    accepted way it was done it was
  • 1:06:52
    different it was an editor they usually
  • 1:06:54
    used our clips they used our bell they
  • 1:06:56
    used our jingles they used a lot of our
  • 1:06:58
    format it wasn't a competitor it was
  • 1:07:00
    flattery
  • 1:07:01
    it was flattery it was the way he could
  • 1:07:04
    compare the way Henry's hamburgers was
  • 1:07:07
    to McDonald's and where McDonald's now
  • 1:07:09
    in that case yeah I don't know if I like
  • 1:07:12
