    William Baris course people know who he
  • 0:35
    is yeah I think yes to the street and
  • 0:41
    asked I'm thinking he would know know
  • 0:43
    what they'll say yeah never heard of the
  • 0:45
    guy
  • 0:47
    well yes William bard testified well he
  • 0:54
    was a witness yeah yeah and you saw it I
  • 1:00
    saw it we all saw it initial impression
  • 1:02
    list you have clips actually I don't
  • 1:04
    have any clips from from that itself I
  • 1:06
    thought it was a gem personally I
  • 1:08
    thought it was kind of a poor
  • 1:09
    performance by bar I loved it
  • 1:12
    that was a great performance by bar I
  • 1:14
    thought he looked good he didn't have
  • 1:16
    answers fast and he was trying to look
  • 1:19
    cool it didn't quite look cool I don't
  • 1:22
    know I can see the perception where he
  • 1:24
    came across is in fact in some cases
  • 1:27
    somewhat unprepared I thought it was
  • 1:30
    very prepared okay we disagree but you
  • 1:32
    have the clip so let's go and I have the
  • 1:35
    clips the thing is the Washington Post
  • 1:37
    this was laughing before the show they
  • 1:43
    went on and on slamming him pretty much
  • 1:45
    the way you are I was not slant stop I
  • 1:49
    did not I didn't do anything didn't seem
  • 1:57
    that great it wasn't that didn't thing
  • 1:59
    was a good performance oh I thought it
  • 2:01
    was fabulous fantastic he and then today
  • 2:06
    apparently he said because well actually
  • 2:09
    let's start off at the reason he's not
  • 2:10
    gonna do the
  • 2:13
    supposedly today is supposed to go to
  • 2:15
    the Nadler committee in the house is
  • 2:17
    this it is this another public hearing
  • 2:19
    or is it Oh
  • 2:21
    public one okay I'm not doing it the
  • 2:25
    reason he's not doing it he said it very
  • 2:27
    clearly at the beginning of the of his
  • 2:31
    testimony well it wasn't a testimony he
  • 2:36
    just said at the beginning of his
  • 2:38
    discussion of whether he's gonna do
  • 2:40
    Nadler because he wants to be he's not
  • 2:42
    going there to be grilled by a bunch of
  • 2:44
    attorneys he wants to be grilled by the
  • 2:47
    the Congress with men and women and
  • 2:50
    Nadler no no no we're no good apparently
  • 2:54
    Nadler felt that there wasn't any good
  • 2:56
    for the people in the on the committee
  • 3:00
    to talk to him he has to bring in some
  • 3:02
    professional oh okay I didn't realize
  • 3:04
    this so they're gonna bring in legal
  • 3:06
    experts to question him on aspects of
  • 3:09
    the law I guess I didn't realize that oh
  • 3:15
    this is good okay that okay I already
  • 3:23
    said he says I already said I'm not
  • 3:25
    gonna be questioned by some professional
  • 3:28
    attorneys that just came in there to ask
  • 3:30
    me a lot a bunch of random questions
  • 3:32
    right uh I mean they're gonna be asked
  • 3:34
    questions by the congressman or I'm not
  • 3:35
    gonna be asked questions by anybody but
  • 3:37
    meanwhile Nadler pays zero attention to
  • 3:40
    this and and ramrodded through the idea
  • 3:43
    yeah we're gonna have at least at least
  • 3:45
    our attorney asked him a bunch of
  • 3:47
    questions in there and if i if i was bar
  • 3:52
    and i heard what i'm about to play which
  • 3:54
    is the Nadler committee going back and
  • 3:57
    forth on this i would probably want not
  • 4:01
    want to go to this committee either just
  • 4:02
    listen to this
  • 4:03
    hey reporting quorum being present the
  • 4:05
    question is on the adoption of the
  • 4:07
    motion was this the one the chaos
  • 4:09
    selection this is the Nadler yeah that's
  • 4:13
    never gonna he's now there's ramrodding
  • 4:15
    this idea through and he's not listening
  • 4:17
    to the republicans limit osco porting
  • 4:19
    quorum being present the question is on
  • 4:21
    the adoption of the motion
  • 4:22
    pursuant the house rule 11 close to
  • 4:24
    Germany those in favor say aye mr.
  • 4:28
    chairman OHS no mr. chairman nice habit
  • 4:30
    no chairman rice have it the most mr.
  • 4:33
    chairman I'd see cracking motion is
  • 4:36
    agreed to it and won't recognize members
  • 4:38
    of the committee unless we want to speak
  • 4:40
    on hello Ram meet rod its motion does
  • 4:43
    anyone wish to ask for a recorded vote
  • 4:45
    mr. chairman I've asked for recognition
  • 4:51
    so if you're not Republicans we're not
  • 4:54
    allowing on the question to meet this
  • 4:56
    motion you're making a record here what
  • 4:59
    we ought to be going by the rules and
  • 5:01
    giving people a chance to debate
  • 5:03
    no wonder the AG doesn't want to come
  • 5:05
    into running things without regard for
  • 5:08
    debate gentlemen was totally unfair in
  • 5:10
    the middle of the vote the clerk will
  • 5:12
    report the result mr. chairman and we
  • 5:14
    get no amendments others say the ranking
  • 5:16
    for a personal form a clerk will report
  • 5:19
    the parliamentary you will be
  • 5:23
    entertained after the clear-cut Awards
  • 5:25
    the result understand what's happening
  • 5:36
    he said this is what we're gonna do and
  • 5:39
    he just ramrodded through even though
  • 5:40
    there were objections is that what I'm
  • 5:42
    hearing here yeah a very out-of-control
  • 5:46
    committee no control no he's got a bang
  • 5:51
    that gravel I thought you recognized the
  • 5:58
    gentleman from Florida for an emetic
  • 6:00
    will call the rest the Chairman you said
  • 6:02
    you were gonna recognize the role mr.
  • 6:05
    chairman moved the table sure when I
  • 6:07
    moved to amend where it was chairman I
  • 6:08
    move to adjourn we're in the middle of a
  • 6:11
    rope in the middle of we were in the
  • 6:13
    middle of debate was inviting you ended
  • 6:16
    it without the question chairman halls I
  • 6:18
    wasn't walking in a red bag just chair
  • 6:20
    my mood to adjourn regular order regular
  • 6:26
    that's a privilege motion to adjourn
  • 6:29
    motion to adjourn motion to adjourn is
  • 6:32
    not in order in the middle of a roll
  • 6:33
    call
  • 6:34
    well the rule has not been called yet we
  • 6:36
    were in the middle of devising a you
  • 6:38
    didn't allow it I was in the middle of
  • 6:39
    offering an amendment mr. chairman the
  • 6:41
    eyes and nays you'd recognize the
  • 6:43
    message you don't really have to step on
  • 6:47
    it with that guy this is why would you
  • 6:51
    go to this committee no that's a preview
  • 6:55
    no of course you won't go there when we
  • 6:59
    come to blows like we've seen you know
  • 7:01
    in Japan vanish we need some of that
  • 7:04
    where someone just jumps over the dais
  • 7:06
    and just starts wailing on somebody I
  • 7:08
    wonder look known Adler's committee is
  • 7:11
    completely obviously out of control and
  • 7:13
    of course the Washington Post doesn't
  • 7:15
    report on that reported on this I didn't
  • 7:20
    even I didn't even hear about it yeah it
  • 7:23
    was while I keep going on and on by the
  • 7:24
    way that's great good catch now the
  • 7:29
    classic the classic there's I got one
  • 7:34
    two or three I think F for close word
  • 7:36
    with the bar discussing things with
  • 7:40
    before we do that let me do a little
  • 7:42
    ultra mall I was watching a number of
  • 7:46
    different screens and something happened
  • 7:49
    pretty much in the beginning and then
  • 7:51
    later on in an hour later but I have not
  • 7:54
    seen that I can recall on the mainstream
  • 7:58
    news channels typically when they have
  • 8:01
    when there's a session like this they
  • 8:05
    just let it all run at the end they come
  • 8:06
    in they've got all their pundits CNN I
  • 8:08
    think had nine people nine people in the
  • 8:12
    semicircle MSNBC did something new they
  • 8:16
    broke into the hearing have you ever
  • 8:19
    seen that with this a hearing of some
  • 8:21
    importance and then they break away to
  • 8:23
    comment on it before it's over
  • 8:26
    why so no collusion no coordination no
  • 8:32
    conspiracy between the Trump campaign
  • 8:34
    and the Russian government regarding the
  • 8:37
    2016 election you have to have specific
  • 8:39
    intent to obstruct justice if there's no
  • 8:44
    underlying we're on your luck ting to do
  • 8:46
    this we rarely do what the chairman of
  • 8:48
    the Judiciary Committee just said that
  • 8:50
    Muller found there was no collusion that
  • 8:53
    is not correct Nicole Wallace the report
  • 8:56
    says collusion is not a thing they
  • 8:59
    consider it doesn't exist and what's
  • 9:01
    stunning is that Lindsey Graham is
  • 9:03
    offering answers to questions that
  • 9:04
    aren't on the table today the question
  • 9:06
    on the table today after the recording
  • 9:09
    last night is why did Barmes
  • 9:11
    characterize what was actually in the
  • 9:12
    Muller report and I'm sorry Lindsey
  • 9:15
    Graham but you're defensive 'no siz
  • 9:16
    showing to talk about everything that
  • 9:18
    went into it and the next breath
  • 9:20
    distorted is a stunning stunning
  • 9:23
    mischaracterization of what the whole
  • 9:25
    exercise is supposed to be about
  • 9:26
    revealed what I talked about before that
  • 9:28
    he's sitting there today not the
  • 9:30
    Judiciary Committee as a human shield
  • 9:32
    for Donald Trump and when we try to
  • 9:36
    offer just
  • 9:37
    gavel-to-gavel coverage but that a
  • 9:39
    phrase or the lack of it its absence
  • 9:44
    from federal code this no collusion
  • 9:46
    mantra is so foundational to why we're
  • 9:49
    here today that we decided to fly get
  • 9:52
    when we heard him use it yet again back
  • 9:55
    into the chairman and the committee so
  • 9:57
    that was ten minutes into it and I've
  • 9:59
    never heard that anyone do that it's
  • 10:07
    like all this was about was collusion oh
  • 10:10
    no no that's not a legal term so Lindsey
  • 10:12
    Graham the human shield for Trump is
  • 10:14
    just it is just that a human shield and
  • 10:17
    they did it again an hour later we want
  • 10:19
    to correct some of the record against of
  • 10:22
    all things what it says the irony of
  • 10:25
    Brian Williams popping in to correct the
  • 10:28
    record because someone didn't tell the
  • 10:30
    truth he's not lost on me we want to
  • 10:33
    correct some of the record against I'm
  • 10:38
    sorry no no wait wait for the second
  • 10:40
    clip this is this is different here we
  • 10:42
    want to correct some of the record
  • 10:44
    against of all things what it says in
  • 10:47
    the Muller report
  • 10:48
    so I'm not gonna dance around this he's
  • 10:51
    lying he's lying about what the mullah
  • 10:53
    report finds around one of the critical
  • 10:55
    flash points in the obstruction
  • 10:56
    investigation so they broke in of course
  • 10:59
    after a Democrat finished asking a
  • 11:01
    question they go to a Republican that's
  • 11:03
    when they jumped in and they have to
  • 11:05
    jump in to say a bar is lying they could
  • 11:08
    not wait to do it afterwards
  • 11:09
    and and do a clip I guess they feel the
  • 11:12
    and this is really what this whole
  • 11:14
    hearing was about at least what I saw
  • 11:17
    was hey you said this about the report
  • 11:22
    but it was really quite different and
  • 11:24
    then Muller said well I wish you had
  • 11:26
    shown those 19 pages and then Barr said
  • 11:28
    yeah I'm gonna show all the page it was
  • 11:30
    only about bars interpretation of the
  • 11:34
    Muller report and the three weeks in
  • 11:36
    between the full report being released
  • 11:39
    that was the argument that's all that it
  • 11:42
    was about the whole thing and they have
  • 11:45
    to jump in because all was lying the
  • 11:47
    people will be confused very bizarre
  • 11:52
    never seen that before that I can recall
  • 11:54
    that's beyond bizarre hmm that's twisted
  • 11:58
    but I liked it do we see nothing but
  • 12:01
    collusion collusion collusion for for
  • 12:04
    two years from the NBC yes yeah you
  • 12:08
    can't anyone even brings it up you got
  • 12:12
    to jump in and say hey it's not a legal
  • 12:13
    term I mean how does that work here they
  • 12:18
    got you we have the one little bit you
  • 12:20
    know any collusion yeah yeah that's we
  • 12:24
    do it all the time any collusion you've
  • 12:26
    had it everywhere all right back to the
  • 12:30
    actual hearing couple of things let's
  • 12:34
    hear about this is Blumenthal going on
  • 12:37
    and on because the discussion on the
  • 12:40
    concept of exoneration which apparently
  • 12:43
    you know they made bars kind of be cited
  • 12:46
    in some as to why Muller put in he he's
  • 12:49
    not exonerated when it's not like it's
  • 12:52
    not anything they do and I I think he
  • 12:54
    explains it here pretty pretty clearly
  • 12:57
    the report says that they could not be
  • 13:00
    sure that they could clearly
  • 13:02
    say that he did not violate the law as
  • 13:06
    you know that's not the standard we use
  • 13:07
    in the criminal justice system it's
  • 13:10
    presumed that someone is innocent and
  • 13:12
    the government has to has to prove that
  • 13:14
    they clearly violated we're not in the
  • 13:17
    business of exoneration we're not in the
  • 13:18
    business of proving they didn't violate
  • 13:21
    them but you know I found that holy
  • 13:22
    Bonner rated him in your press
  • 13:25
    conference and in your four-page skews
  • 13:28
    only how did that start I didn't hear
  • 13:31
    the beginning of the question
  • 13:32
    you in effect exonerated or cleared the
  • 13:35
    press no I didn't exonerate I said that
  • 13:39
    we did not believe that there was
  • 13:41
    sufficient evidence to establish an
  • 13:43
    obstruction offense which is the job of
  • 13:45
    the Justice Department and the job of
  • 13:47
    the Justice Department is now over that
  • 13:50
    determines whether or not there's a
  • 13:51
    crime the report is now in the hands of
  • 13:54
    the American people everyone can decide
  • 13:56
    for themselves there's an election in 18
  • 13:58
    months that's very democratic process
  • 14:00
    but we're out of it we have to stop
  • 14:03
    using the criminal justice process as a
  • 14:05
    political weapon my time has expired I
  • 14:08
    apologize mr. chairman but I would just
  • 14:10
    say that the four-page letter and the
  • 14:13
    press conference that you did left the
  • 14:15
    clear impression and it's been repeated
  • 14:18
    again and again that you cleared the
  • 14:21
    president thank you sir you did it bar
  • 14:27
    you're going down in history as a liar
  • 14:31
    yeah he declared the president cuz
  • 14:33
    that's his job who's supposed to clear
  • 14:34
    the president it was not him is the
  • 14:36
    Attorney General yeah and Moeller was
  • 14:39
    working in the attorney general's office
  • 14:40
    yep yep so he cleared the president's
  • 14:44
    yeah yeah that's what he did was he
  • 14:46
    supposed to do no no he was supposed to
  • 14:48
    not do that
  • 14:49
    clearly Brian Williams thinks
  • 14:51
    differently and Nicole Wallace Nicole
  • 14:55
    Wallace they should throw her in jail
  • 14:59
    this is like Blumenthal this is a
  • 15:02
    classic example I think where people
  • 15:04
    didn't like this bars testimony because
  • 15:05
    this is a short clip I'm Blumenthal
  • 15:09
    Unruh Cuse --all
  • 15:11
    my recollection is stop living in a blue
  • 15:14
    background
  • 15:15
    first there's the number of spin-off
  • 15:16
    cases that came out of this I think
  • 15:18
    there's 12 to 14 of them and bar
  • 15:22
    according to Blumenthal should recuse
  • 15:24
    everybody errantly everybody should
  • 15:27
    recuse themselves because there's some
  • 15:30
    there's no real reason but they just
  • 15:32
    should and so bar is being grilled by
  • 15:36
    Blumenthal about his I guess built-in
  • 15:41
    prejudice oh right yes he the bars you
  • 15:44
    the president yes I just thought this is
  • 15:47
    a good clip of where bar just just says
  • 15:51
    no my recollection is I have not
  • 15:53
    discussed those like you don't recall
  • 15:55
    for sure I just let me move I I could I
  • 15:58
    can say very surely I did not discuss
  • 16:01
    the substance event will you recuse
  • 16:02
    yourself from those investigations
  • 16:05
    no no so that would be like you know
  • 16:10
    this is and this came again everyone
  • 16:12
    said why he'd state asked him a question
  • 16:14
    did you say no and they don't be what he
  • 16:18
    was not agreeable no another one is just
  • 16:21
    a definition of a White House was all
  • 16:23
    over him with his White House is uh you
  • 16:26
    know the guy from Rhode Island thinks
  • 16:28
    it's gonna be flooded because of global
  • 16:29
    warming any minute mm-hmm he's always
  • 16:31
    like hunched over with his head tilted
  • 16:35
    like at about 45 degrees he's always
  • 16:37
    talking sideways baby and he's very
  • 16:40
    loaded to the diets and he's way down
  • 16:43
    and it's and he's got his microwave and
  • 16:45
    they said he's cocked and he's talking
  • 16:47
    to him and so he had his chance to get
  • 16:50
    out of the continuous dead-end questions
  • 16:55
    and answers which i think is what
  • 16:57
    probably people found was was boring
  • 16:59
    about the whole thing but he talks about
  • 17:01
    spying and I thought the spying thing
  • 17:03
    was quite good this little back and
  • 17:04
    forth with the White House you used the
  • 17:06
    word spying mm-hmm
  • 17:08
    about authorized DOJ investigative
  • 17:11
    activities are you talking about my
  • 17:14
    testimony we got the House
  • 17:15
    Appropriations yes in the entirety of
  • 17:17
    your previous career in the Department
  • 17:19
    of Justice including as Attorney General
  • 17:22
    have you ever referred to
  • 17:24
    authorised Department investigative
  • 17:26
    activities officially or publicly as
  • 17:30
    spying I'm not asking for private
  • 17:33
    conversation I'm not going to absorb
  • 17:35
    spying I think you know my first job was
  • 17:39
    in CIA I don't think the word spying has
  • 17:41
    any pejorative connotation at all to
  • 17:43
    meet you have to me the question is
  • 17:45
    always whether or not it's authorized
  • 17:48
    and adequately predicated spying
  • 17:51
    I think spying is a good English word
  • 17:54
    that in fact doesn't have synonyms
  • 17:56
    because it is the broadest word
  • 17:58
    incorporating really all forms of covert
  • 18:01
    intelligence collection so I'm not gonna
  • 18:03
    back off the word spying to except I
  • 18:05
    will say when did you adjust thing any
  • 18:07
    pejorative and I used it frequently as
  • 18:09
    you media when did you decide to use it
  • 18:12
    was it off the cuff in the hearing that
  • 18:13
    day or did you go into that hearing
  • 18:14
    intently no it's the words actually off
  • 18:17
    the cuff whoever it was go ahead
  • 18:18
    yeah when when he challenged me and said
  • 18:21
    you want to change your language I was
  • 18:22
    actually thinking like what's the issue
  • 18:24
    I don't consider it a pejorative and
  • 18:26
    irreverently frankly we went back and
  • 18:28
    looked at press usage and up until all
  • 18:31
    the the for outrage a couple of weeks
  • 18:33
    ago it's commonly used in the press to
  • 18:36
    refer to authorized activities such as
  • 18:38
    refer it is Michael Hartman what it is
  • 18:42
    not commonly used by the department my
  • 18:44
    time is commonly used by me I tried to
  • 18:49
    get some answers on this I think could
  • 18:51
    really get a definitive answer if it's
  • 18:52
    if it's common to say spying or not in
  • 18:57
    the shoes by him yes the way he sees it
  • 19:00
    he's old school
  • 19:01
    yeah well and I talked to some old
  • 19:03
    schoolers and I was like yeah yes if no
  • 19:05
    one known don't really felt that was
  • 19:07
    wrong but did yeah of course well of
  • 19:12
    course because once bar dives into it if
  • 19:15
    he's actually gonna do that you know
  • 19:16
    Muller has got all the guilty people out
  • 19:18
    everyone who was guilty of spying is now
  • 19:21
    out god knows where they are and bars
  • 19:24
    going in he says to see if he can find
  • 19:27
    out the origins of this and there was
  • 19:29
    spying of course there was spying first
  • 19:31
    it was spying
  • 19:32
    that's what Trump said when he was
  • 19:34
    ridiculed forget that it's what we do
  • 19:37
    so what Trump said when he was ridiculed
  • 19:40
    yes but it's still what we do we spy we
  • 19:42
    spy on everybody yeah that's why I don't
  • 19:44
    understand why it was such a big fuss
  • 19:45
    well you're not supposed to spy on
  • 19:47
    American citizens that's that's fuss
  • 19:49
    worthy documented that's not true what's
  • 19:55
    not true what do you mean of course it's
  • 19:58
    true
  • 19:58
    I think we've documented that spying on
  • 20:01
    American citizens is not only ego we've
  • 20:03
    documented you said we're not supposed
  • 20:04
    to and I said we've documented that
  • 20:07
    that's not true we do it okay yes I mean
  • 20:13
    it was just one of the recent shows
  • 20:15
    where they were documenting how you know
  • 20:17
    if you well if you're I can't remember
  • 20:19
    what the clip was but it's quite funny
  • 20:21
    it was it was it was Gina talking about
  • 20:24
    how we spy on Americans hmm Durbin tried
  • 20:28
    to corner bar with ethics is my land
  • 20:31
    there's ethics thing that they keep
  • 20:34
    trying to said well you know there's an
  • 20:37
    edge there's an ethics committee that's
  • 20:39
    attached to the Justice Department
  • 20:41
    apparently if you have any issues with
  • 20:43
    maybe some ethical thing you gotta
  • 20:47
    recuse yourself they really want this
  • 20:48
    guy out of the picture yeah
  • 20:50
    and so they so Durbin just found some
  • 20:55
    like set up where Barr did ask for a
  • 21:00
    opinion from this ethics group which he
  • 21:03
    didn't necessarily have to do and
  • 21:04
    Durban's all over it saying that he
  • 21:06
    knows that he's in the wrong and he
  • 21:08
    should be should be recusing himself and
  • 21:10
    then bar kind of weasels out of it with
  • 21:13
    a very very elegant job leaving Durbin
  • 21:17
    just flat-footed I just thought this was
  • 21:19
    a very good backhand for this a little
  • 21:20
    long I'd like to ask you a separate
  • 21:22
    issue
  • 21:23
    it's been reported that on April 16th
  • 21:25
    you received a waiver to participate in
  • 21:27
    the investigation and litigation of
  • 21:29
    so-called 1mdb matter this is an
  • 21:33
    investigation into a Malaysian car I
  • 21:35
    didn't understand that the first time I
  • 21:36
    heard it the 1mdb matter I didn't what
  • 21:38
    do you know what that is what that
  • 21:39
    refers to
  • 21:40
    yeah this is the company that's out of
  • 21:42
    Malaysia that yeah this her name ah and
  • 21:45
    they're the ones who were supposedly
  • 21:47
    money laundering through the Trump or
  • 21:49
    not
  • 21:50
    this is what the Lib Joe's wrong about I
  • 21:52
    goes the big hope of hope and regress it
  • 21:55
    this is how they gonna get Trump out
  • 21:56
    somehow he had something to do with it
  • 21:58
    there's no is that is that the Logan act
  • 22:00
    or the Hatch Act or the corruption yes
  • 22:05
    of course makes nothing but sense on
  • 22:08
    April 16th you received a waiver to
  • 22:10
    participate in the investigation and
  • 22:11
    litigation of so-called 1mdb matter this
  • 22:15
    is an investigation into a malaysian
  • 22:17
    company from alleged money laundering
  • 22:20
    according to news reports as part of
  • 22:22
    this investigation the US Attorney's
  • 22:24
    Office for the Eastern District of New
  • 22:25
    York is investigating whether a
  • 22:28
    Malaysian national illegally donated to
  • 22:30
    the Trump inaugural committee with money
  • 22:32
    taken from 1mdb you sought a waiver to
  • 22:36
    participate in this matter even though
  • 22:38
    your former law firm Kirkland and Ellis
  • 22:40
    represents an entity involved in the
  • 22:42
    investigation namely Goldman Sachs how
  • 22:45
    many waivers have you received to allow
  • 22:47
    you to participate and matters or
  • 22:48
    investigations involving Trump
  • 22:50
    businesses the Trump campaign or the
  • 22:52
    Trump inaugural committee none you did
  • 22:54
    seek waiver in this case actually the
  • 22:57
    impetus as I recall and people should
  • 23:00
    jump me if I'm wrong but it didn't come
  • 23:02
    he said that a lot he's instead of
  • 23:04
    people should jump in
  • 23:05
    he kept saying people should jump me but
  • 23:07
    he kept saying that no he only said
  • 23:09
    twice hmm well I heard okay so I heard
  • 23:12
    it a couple times but isn't it people
  • 23:13
    should jump in instead of jump me you
  • 23:16
    don't want to have people jump you I
  • 23:17
    have no idea what is this little phrase
  • 23:20
    yeah people should jump me hey jump jump
  • 23:23
    me for the Trump inaugural committee
  • 23:24
    done you did seek waiver in this case
  • 23:27
    actually the impetus as I recall and
  • 23:30
    people should jump me if I'm wrong but
  • 23:32
    it didn't come from me I was asked to
  • 23:34
    seek a waiver in this case do you see
  • 23:38
    the problem if the issue is whether or
  • 23:40
    not a money laundering operation
  • 23:42
    Malaysia isn't sending money to the
  • 23:45
    Trump inaugural committee that is
  • 23:47
    Attorney General of the United States
  • 23:48
    you may not want to involve yourself in
  • 23:51
    this all right well no I don't I don't
  • 23:53
    because I was not involved with the
  • 23:55
    inaugural I would you seek a waiver then
  • 23:57
    to participate
  • 23:58
    this the waiver was I guess the conflict
  • 24:00
    that was not because of any relationship
  • 24:02
    I had to the inaugural committee which I
  • 24:04
    didn't know it's the goldman sachs you'd
  • 24:05
    form a client I would Kirkland Ellis the
  • 24:08
    law firm right and their client goldman
  • 24:10
    sachs i just don't understand why you
  • 24:13
    would touch that hot stove you sought
  • 24:16
    the waiver that's why i'm asking the
  • 24:17
    question the attorney at the criminal
  • 24:20
    division axe actually asked me to get a
  • 24:22
    waiver because of the importance of this
  • 24:24
    investigation overall i was requested by
  • 24:27
    the criminal division i didn't seek it
  • 24:29
    the impetus did not come from me and who
  • 24:33
    would that be that made their
  • 24:34
    recommendation to you yeah i until there
  • 24:36
    was the criminal division mister bench
  • 24:38
    Kowski yeah he was the head of the
  • 24:41
    criminal division but before apparently
  • 24:43
    they discussed it with the career ethics
  • 24:45
    official and they made the
  • 24:46
    recommendation thank you yeah i went
  • 24:51
    flat he tried he tried to get something
  • 24:53
    out that there was a couple of people
  • 24:55
    did that um Kamla Harris as she is it I
  • 24:59
    didn't get any clips but she has a very
  • 25:02
    interesting style where she just asked
  • 25:05
    the question cuts it off says that
  • 25:08
    resting bitchface I think it plays well
  • 25:11
    for the for fans of hers I don't know I
  • 25:16
    think she had anything to prove no she
  • 25:18
    has nothing to prove quickly but she
  • 25:20
    it's a media show the whole thing is a
  • 25:21
    media show as usual yeah i didn t have
  • 25:27
    more know you know i did have a bunch of
  • 25:30
    clover char clips cuz she was kind of
  • 25:32
    like the same
  • 25:33
    she's very similar to a camp camel
  • 25:35
    ahamill ah yeah same thing but the funny
  • 25:42
    thing about if you listen to like just
  • 25:44
    too long because these they gave him six
  • 25:46
    minutes plus on done these are opening
  • 25:47
    questions mm-hmm she she does this thing
  • 25:51
    it is kind of amusing they look back on
  • 25:53
    it Klobuchar has these two bills before
  • 25:56
    Congress one has got something to do
  • 25:58
    with it's both they're all kind of
  • 26:01
    conflict of interest bills and have to
  • 26:03
    do with these some some various
  • 26:06
    situations that are everybody agrees or
  • 26:09
    needs to be fixed
  • 26:11
    that's deep summarizing and so she
  • 26:14
    starts off asking about these things
  • 26:16
    just to kind of promote her bill and
  • 26:17
    then he says can you help us can you
  • 26:20
    help us help us help us says yeah I can
  • 26:22
    help you I think so and then she goes on
  • 26:24
    it can you help us help us help it yeah
  • 26:26
    I think so and then she she drills into
  • 26:30
    the guy with these really insulting
  • 26:32
    questions I'm thinking what kind of
  • 26:34
    helped is she gonna expect after this it
  • 26:36
    was just the stupidest thing I've ever
  • 26:38
    witnessed in your name we could watch
  • 26:39
    the entire Klobuchar
  • 26:42
    QA when this guy it's it's pretty
  • 26:45
    baffling well somebody's people aren't
  • 26:48
    too too bright well it's again just a
  • 26:52
    sideshow big sideshow glad everybody
  • 26:54
    watched it and it's all upset about it I
  • 26:58
    like the media understand why they would
  • 27:00
    he interrupts it just do because no it's
  • 27:06
    not second-guessing Graham no no it's
  • 27:09
    not second-guessing Nicole Wallace is an
  • 27:11
    attorney she knows things
  • 27:14
    that's another clip I didn't get I which
  • 27:17
    I'll just reiterate could have had this
  • 27:19
    clip bars being grilled by one of these
  • 27:23
    guys and he says don't you think that
  • 27:26
    all the pundits and and pundits and
  • 27:29
    newsmen and lawyers and attorneys have
  • 27:32
    all disagreed with many of your
  • 27:34
    conclusions and Barr says I've never run
  • 27:37
    into any two attorneys that agree I saw
  • 27:40
    that too well here is a attorney Chris
  • 27:45
    Cuomo he's a lawyer and this kind of
  • 27:48
    helps us understand why and Brian
  • 27:52
    Williams and Nicole Wallace and others
  • 27:54
    are just so nutty about it they're in
  • 27:56
    their own minds they're conflating and
  • 27:58
    they're mixing up different processes
  • 28:01
    different different bodies within the US
  • 28:03
    government I mean just just everything
  • 28:05
    and the guy's a lawyer so you think he
  • 28:07
    would kind of know how it works and he
  • 28:10
    had on former Attorney General Michael
  • 28:12
    Mukasey
  • 28:13
    which he should have known better
  • 28:15
    honestly Cuomo consider this he's being
  • 28:18
    investigated for a crime that didn't
  • 28:20
    happen and that he certainly didn't
  • 28:21
    commit who says it did now Russian
  • 28:24
    interference happened
  • 28:24
    Russian interference happened for sure
  • 28:26
    but cooperation and conspiracy between
  • 28:30
    the Trump campaign and Russians did not
  • 28:32
    happen and that was the criminal level
  • 28:34
    no since mr. Muller to any level mm-hmm
  • 28:37
    I don't know about any level that's a
  • 28:38
    criminal level I do
  • 28:39
    I'll give you okay and and there's an
  • 28:42
    investigation going on not for a month
  • 28:45
    or six months but for a two year close
  • 28:48
    this New Year's and his administration
  • 28:50
    is laboring under the shadow of that
  • 28:53
    investigation and people alleging that
  • 28:55
    had happened there are gonna be
  • 28:57
    indictments and so on and so forth but
  • 28:59
    this is a special counsel and it was put
  • 29:01
    together by Rosenstein because he wanted
  • 29:04
    it separate from the DOJ because of what
  • 29:06
    he saw it's not separate from the DOJ
  • 29:07
    you know within the DOJ as a mechanism
  • 29:10
    separate I know it's under the DOJ I
  • 29:12
    understand how the guidelines are
  • 29:13
    written I understand why they were
  • 29:15
    written because we didn't like but the
  • 29:16
    interface guidelines we have three
  • 29:18
    branches of government this is within
  • 29:20
    the executive sprout new branch of
  • 29:27
    government just work for Cuomo yeah this
  • 29:30
    new branch they sprout they can do stuff
  • 29:34
    sprout a new branch of government but
  • 29:37
    what your friend did it's not just by
  • 29:40
    the book he took it on himself to decide
  • 29:43
    this rule he didn't have to do that
  • 29:45
    cause he had to do it why who was gonna
  • 29:47
    decide whether to indict or not Congress
  • 29:50
    it's a political matter leave it to them
  • 29:53
    Congress they decide whether to impeach
  • 29:56
    just listen to Chris Cuomo answer and
  • 29:59
    then this guy's gonna before you do this
  • 30:01
    I think you should consider maybe play
  • 30:04
    the clip again what is Chris Chris
  • 30:06
    Como's job on this show is Chris Cuomo a
  • 30:10
    guy who is bringing people on to help us
  • 30:12
    understand things or is he trying to ram
  • 30:15
    wrote his personal opinion down the
  • 30:18
    public's throat and his personal opinion
  • 30:20
    by the way reflective of CNN and MSNBC
  • 30:22
    for that matter the higher-ups and in
  • 30:27
    these organizations I mean what is he
  • 30:30
    why is he arguing with the guys to such
  • 30:31
    an extent could see well because he has
  • 30:33
    a law degree that he's he's not a
  • 30:35
    practicing lawyer remember this is the
  • 30:37
    same guy that said you're not
  • 30:38
    allowed to look at WikiLeaks that's only
  • 30:40
    for journalists clip do you have it here
  • 30:42
    yeah where is it well what he says is he
  • 30:47
    says it's illegal to possess stolen
  • 30:50
    documents unless you're the media and he
  • 30:52
    implies that it's in pot it's impossible
  • 30:54
    for you to for the public to go and look
  • 30:57
    at Luke II least now I wanted before you
  • 31:00
    play that although I'd rather you to
  • 31:02
    play the other clip all from the
  • 31:04
    beginning okay when you just play the
  • 31:07
    other couldn't be anything I wanna front
  • 31:09
    load this other clip consider he's being
  • 31:12
    investigated for a crime that didn't
  • 31:14
    happen and that he certainly didn't
  • 31:16
    commit who says it did that Russian
  • 31:18
    interference happened Russian
  • 31:19
    interference happened for sure but
  • 31:21
    cooperation and conspiracy between the
  • 31:25
    Trump campaign and Russians did not
  • 31:27
    happen and that was the criminal level
  • 31:28
    no since mr. mower to any level level I
  • 31:33
    do
  • 31:33
    I'll give you okay and and there's an
  • 31:37
    investigation going on not for a month
  • 31:40
    or six months but for a two year close
  • 31:42
    to two years and his administration is
  • 31:45
    laboring under the shadow of that
  • 31:47
    investigation and people alleging that
  • 31:50
    had happened there are gonna be
  • 31:51
    indictments and so on and so forth but
  • 31:53
    this is a special counsel and it was put
  • 31:55
    together by Rosenstein because he wanted
  • 31:58
    it separate from the DOJ because of what
  • 32:00
    he saw it's not separate from the DOJ
  • 32:02
    within the DEA as a mechanism separate I
  • 32:05
    know what's under the DOJ I understand
  • 32:07
    how the guidelines are written I
  • 32:08
    understand why they were written because
  • 32:10
    we didn't like what the intersections we
  • 32:12
    have three branches of government this
  • 32:14
    is within the executive sprout a new
  • 32:16
    branch of government but what your
  • 32:18
    friend did it's not just by the book he
  • 32:21
    took it on himself to decide this rule
  • 32:24
    he didn't have to do that of course he
  • 32:26
    had to do it why who was gonna decide
  • 32:28
    whether to indict or not Congress as a
  • 32:31
    political matter leave it to them they
  • 32:34
    decide whether to impeach or not I'm
  • 32:36
    skipping a big point what you taught me
  • 32:39
    about very easily they can't indict him
  • 32:41
    that is the opinion from the OLC so
  • 32:44
    there is nothing to decide on that level
  • 32:45
    it is a purely political it all hog
  • 32:47
    receipt doesn't indict
  • 32:49
    I know I'm using I'm using it as just a
  • 32:52
    you know a metaphor we know no because
  • 32:55
    we know the audience we know the we know
  • 32:58
    the OLC says smaller by the minute you
  • 33:01
    can I don't know if you could hear that
  • 33:03
    in the background he's saying you got a
  • 33:05
    huge audience and these is getting
  • 33:06
    smaller every minute though hold on you
  • 33:12
    got to hear that it says right at the
  • 33:13
    end oh shoot it's not that important
  • 33:18
    okay now you're you know you're cuomo
  • 33:20
    clip well so Cuomo is got and I have to
  • 33:24
    say when I heard this clip and I don't
  • 33:27
    have the long version but he talks about
  • 33:30
    how it's okay for the media look at
  • 33:32
    WikiLeaks because this is this is stolen
  • 33:34
    documents and and he kind of he doesn't
  • 33:37
    say it but he implies that if you look
  • 33:39
    at it you're breaking the law well yeah
  • 33:42
    if you're a spy if you're and I which
  • 33:46
    makes me wonder about him because to
  • 33:48
    have this in your brain is that the
  • 33:52
    level of our spies in the United States
  • 33:55
    woe is me we're doomed despot well we've
  • 33:59
    known this from I think two or three
  • 34:01
    years ago when our when our economic
  • 34:03
    hitman the the one I think that we refer
  • 34:07
    to as such as such as such is was it was
  • 34:12
    having was I wouldn't say shacked up but
  • 34:15
    he was with this woman from the State
  • 34:17
    Department who was mysterious and
  • 34:19
    probably part of the oh that's right
  • 34:21
    right right right right right
  • 34:22
    and she made a big stink about looking
  • 34:26
    at any of the WikiLeaks think because it
  • 34:28
    would be caught on her lie-detector test
  • 34:30
    and looking at classified material it
  • 34:33
    really sucks being a spy
  • 34:34
    basically so the spies themselves if
  • 34:37
    something's public domain but it's a
  • 34:38
    secret
  • 34:39
    not to look at it the spies are not
  • 34:42
    allowed to look at it for stupid reasons
  • 34:46
    let's face it I mean this is the dumbest
  • 34:48
    thing it's true could be bullshit but
  • 34:50
    it's stupid but when Cuomo says this it
  • 34:53
    sounds like he says he's it sounds like
  • 34:56
    he personally is a spy and he's just
  • 35:00
    viewing the litany about what spies can
  • 35:02
    again
  • 35:03
    do not what the public can and cannot do
  • 35:05
    see assuming that the public are all
  • 35:07
    spies I guess which I think the good
  • 35:09
    part of them are but it's beside the
  • 35:11
    point this is a very peculiar clip CNN's
  • 35:13
    Chris Cuomo says that it's illegal for
  • 35:16
    anyone but the media to read WikiLeaks
  • 35:17
    also interesting is remember it's
  • 35:19
    illegal to possess these stolen
  • 35:22
    documents it's different for the media
  • 35:24
    so everything you learn about this
  • 35:25
    you're learning from us because he's an
  • 35:28
    idiot and that's what his handlers told
  • 35:30
    him to say oh that's from the talking
  • 35:34
    cat video I know the talking cat time
  • 35:37
    line but you make a good point if
  • 35:39
    because Cuomo is clearly kind of thick
  • 35:42
    he just comes across as dumb and
  • 35:44
    certainly in what he's saying here if he
  • 35:48
    is mockingbird you know CIA she'll spy
  • 35:51
    or on you know some low-level on the
  • 35:53
    payroll then that would that's what
  • 35:56
    that's what he would be trained to say
  • 35:57
    and he just dipped it out there that
  • 35:59
    that's very interesting of course most
  • 36:01
    of the media are involved with CIA most
  • 36:04
    of them were or others but as Paul
  • 36:07
    please a lot of the big timer is not
  • 36:09
    about Washington Post New York Times CNN
  • 36:12
    and MSNBC the big the big four or
  • 36:15
    totally compromised I've been watching
  • 36:19
    Fox News very closely as they've started
  • 36:21
    to morph oh yeah and more faster than oh
  • 36:25
    yes morphing a little too fast for their
  • 36:27
    own good well I got a clip here from
  • 36:29
    Chris Wallace and while I don't disagree
  • 36:31
    with what he's saying I've never seen
  • 36:34
    anything like this being said on Fox and
  • 36:36
    remember we're seeing Fox throw people
  • 36:38
    off the air for not wanting you know for
  • 36:40
    wanting to say hey you know this is you
  • 36:42
    got to connect the dots on the note road
  • 36:44
    um I shut up not on my watch that's the
  • 36:47
    first that's the first and now Chris
  • 36:50
    Wallace says this you know I know there
  • 36:52
    are some people who don't think that
  • 36:54
    this March 27th letter is a big deal and
  • 36:58
    you know some opinion people some
  • 37:01
    opinion people who appear on this
  • 37:03
    network is in heaven he's making a
  • 37:04
    difference between news people like
  • 37:06
    himself and oh pinion people that
  • 37:10
    delivers an opinion oh no wait now he
  • 37:13
    delivers what he calls fact but it's
  • 37:15
    very interesting to see this split at
  • 37:17
    FoxNews this is this is fasten heel and
  • 37:21
    you know some opinion people some
  • 37:23
    opinion people who appear on this
  • 37:25
    network who may be pushing a a political
  • 37:28
    agenda but you know we have to deal in
  • 37:31
    facts and and the fact is that this
  • 37:33
    letter from the special counsel and it
  • 37:36
    was one of at least three contacts with
  • 37:38
    the Attorney General
  • 37:40
    between March 25th and March 27th was a
  • 37:44
    clear indication that the Attorney
  • 37:46
    General was upset very upset with the
  • 37:49
    letter that Benton sent out by the
  • 37:51
    Attorney General and wanted a change or
  • 37:54
    wanted at least added to and the
  • 37:56
    Attorney General refused to do so he
  • 37:58
    felt the Attorney General's letter was
  • 38:00
    inaccurate he says in the conversation
  • 38:03
    he was talking about media coverage
  • 38:04
    that's not what he said in a letter what
  • 38:06
    he says in the letter is you didn't
  • 38:08
    reflect what we found in the report and
  • 38:11
    there are a lot of people having read
  • 38:12
    now the full report or as much as it has
  • 38:14
    been not redacted
  • 38:16
    you know agree that he didn't reveal
  • 38:20
    what was fully in the report again those
  • 38:22
    aren't opinions that's not a political
  • 38:23
    agenda those are the facts so not only
  • 38:27
    is it interesting that he talks about it
  • 38:29
    wasn't by the way that was hardly the
  • 38:31
    facts would he just of course there's a
  • 38:34
    couple things this well let me just say
  • 38:36
    did you say opinion people or people of
  • 38:38
    opinion where you say I know don't think
  • 38:41
    that this March I want to get this right
  • 38:43
    sevens letter is a big deal and you know
  • 38:47
    some opinion people opinion people
  • 38:49
    opinion people you have news people you
  • 38:52
    have opinion people and believe me
  • 38:53
    that's how they talk about each other on
  • 38:55
    two different sides inside Fox News
  • 38:57
    right now opinion people are Hannity
  • 39:00
    ingre hem Tucker Carlson is Ingram by
  • 39:05
    the way Thank You Ingram you're Brian
  • 39:13
    Graham I may use that so with Paul Ryan
  • 39:16
    now on the board of directors
  • 39:18
    you know the Disneyfication of the Fox
  • 39:21
    brand itself which is not include
  • 39:24
    snooze there is something going on and
  • 39:26
    I'm still seeing my pillow dot-com ads
  • 39:30
    during Tucker's show which means they
  • 39:33
    can't sell ads they can't sell them
  • 39:37
    because all the advertisers are afraid
  • 39:39
    of advertising with the no with the the
  • 39:42
    right lighting people people not see
  • 39:54
    yeah but it's just interesting to see
  • 39:57
    this particular rift inside Fox News and
  • 40:00
    I I think that the opinion pinyon people
  • 40:02
    are hurting their gut they're good for
  • 40:05
    ratings bad for business opinion people
  • 40:07
    are on the outs I think I think it's
  • 40:09
    over for good for ratings bad for
  • 40:11
    business yeah that's the problem with
  • 40:13
    that model yes that's the problem with
  • 40:16
    the advertising model in general because
  • 40:18
    we all know in the United States of
  • 40:20
    America there's only one God and that is
  • 40:23
    the advertiser the advertiser rules
  • 40:26
    everything exactly
  • 40:30
    I don't know they haven't they don't
  • 40:33
    spin off numbers to tell us what you
  • 40:36
    know tucker tucker's money's are they do
  • 40:39
    you always talk about the ratings but I
  • 40:40
    never talk about the income right I do
  • 40:43
    know that CNN we see CNN's ratings in
  • 40:47
    April drops another 26% in primetime
  • 40:53
    now we're still all talking can't they
  • 40:56
    get a clue CIA let's say or what
  • 41:00
    somebody other than your own common
  • 41:04
    sense mm-hmm you can't make corrections
  • 41:08
    on these sorts of things I mean they
  • 41:09
    could correct of course
  • 41:10
    let me see an International is doing
  • 41:13
    fine I mean this and it's watchable CNN
  • 41:15
    International I catch a go wow this is
  • 41:18
    pretty good how do you receive it I
  • 41:20
    don't have it here how do you get it
  • 41:21
    watch online I think I've gotten it on
  • 41:25
    yeah I got it on I get it online I can I
  • 41:27
    have to do that online cuz I if you want
  • 41:30
    anything outside of Bar miler Barbara
  • 41:33
    you've gotta what you gotta flip on
  • 41:35
    Pluto TV for
  • 41:37
    long as that lasts since they've also
  • 41:38
    been co-opted they still have Sky News
  • 41:41
    they still have RT this you get some
  • 41:43
    information about the parties doomed
  • 41:46
    therefore their Russian agent well
  • 41:50
    they're ready and registered as such
  • 41:52
    registered under the Farris yes they are
  • 41:56
    registered as such as fantastic great
  • 41:59
    time to be alive well is the Golden Age
  • 42:02
    of the Internet
  • 42:03
    so where do we where do we sense to go
  • 42:04
    let's pay attention now kids you won't
  • 42:08
    you're not gonna you're not gonna see it
  • 42:10
    like you even like this show is dude
  • 42:12
    well I don't know I think we'll make it
  • 42:14
    out before before the real crunch comes
  • 42:16
    down you mean exit strategy people I got
  • 42:21
    angry letters about this yeah yeah
  • 42:23
    producer email Mina people in my family
  • 42:26
    have donated but I just can't when you
  • 42:28
    keep talking about exit strategy bring
  • 42:30
    back the good old days
  • 42:32
    we're doing one show a week for 40
  • 42:35
    minutes and you weren't donating that I
  • 42:38
    don't think so you do know that exit
  • 42:40
    strategy is a joke right
  • 42:42
    kind of I mean if we had a real exit
  • 42:44
    strategy we just be we'd exit right now
  • 42:49
    but right now being being on the front
  • 42:52
    lines of the podcast reboot is fabulous
  • 42:55
    no one cares about us not a sight not a
  • 42:58
    single story not nothing covers us ever

    and of course Adam doesn't like me
  • 43:06
    talking about it although he's nods his
  • 43:08
    head and says yes yes that's the
  • 43:10
    tourettes yeah is the following which is
  • 43:13

  • 43:15
    conferences and then they have a lot of
  • 43:18
    articles written in New York Times and
  • 43:20
    elsewhere
  • 43:20
    mostly promote their podcast which is OK
  • 43:25
    and they go on and on about the history
  • 43:29
    of podcasting and theirs and no one ever
  • 43:31
    ever is I've actually asked them about
  • 43:34

  • 43:41
    question about podcasting in his history
  • 43:45

    than 50 million it's somebody know
  • 45:10
    everyone has it was different number
  • 45:12
    yeah they do but I think it was always
  • 45:14
    been kind of targeting 35 million
  • 45:17
    although 33 would be a better number
  • 45:20
    that's what I'm waiting for
  • 45:21
    we should just introduce that and just
  • 45:23
    keep saying it and just say actual cost
  • 45:26
    of Muller report 33 million dollars
  • 45:28
    everyone go tweet that now according to
  • 45:32
    the molar report the report cost 33
  • 45:34
    million dollars just just make sure
  • 45:36
    people know that now that everyone has a
  • 45:38
    different number Trump has a different
  • 45:39
    number miss Lindsey Graham has all
  • 45:41
    different numbers there just before love
  • 45:43
    shit all right back to podcasting I'd
  • 45:46
    there I did want to mention the reason
  • 45:50
    why Spotify and Pandora are getting into
  • 45:53
    the podcast business the scam the public
  • 45:57
    it's because they have no other way to
  • 45:59
    increase their revenues zero the they
  • 46:03
    don't own the content of the songs and
  • 46:06
    those contracts the you know what's even
  • 46:08
    written into statute of how much needs
  • 46:12
    to be paid there's no way they can and
  • 46:15
    if they start to really do well and
  • 46:17
    they're never made a dime they start to
  • 46:20
    really do well well you know then the
  • 46:23
    the music business will just up the
  • 46:24
    price it's a there they're a bad drug
  • 46:28
    dealer and so they figure all we have
  • 46:30
    this content we have our original
  • 46:31
    content that we're gonna no no one it's
  • 46:34
    not going to work and I feel bad for the
  • 46:36
    Union people because they're the people
  • 46:40
    this the podcast Union people within
  • 46:42
    Spotify I guess Union number one it
  • 46:45
    wasn't gimlet gimlet was going was going
  • 46:48
    to unionize oh yeah gimlet yeah I feel
  • 46:52
    bad for them because they're actually
  • 46:53
    going to put themselves out of a job
  • 46:55
    like I was talking to a guy in Holland
  • 46:57
    just yesterday a big TV show a big TV
  • 47:01
    show didn't work out too well ratings
  • 47:03
    low cancelled after 24 episodes yeah
  • 47:05
    I've known him since I was 20 21 radio
  • 47:08
    guy and he's been doing a podcast which
  • 47:10
    it's good you know it's very right-wing
  • 47:12
    it's talks a lot about Trump and how
  • 47:15
    yeah pretty much the same situation in
  • 47:18
    Holland and I said I'm just gonna do
  • 47:20
    this podcast and he wanted to know how
  • 47:22
    the value for value system work I said
  • 47:25
    the first thing you got to do because
  • 47:26
    he'd been talking about this stop with
  • 47:29
    this idiotic video stop don't do video
  • 47:33
    you will never make it if you do video
  • 47:36
    he said oh he had to think about it for
  • 47:39
    two days say I think you're right said
  • 47:41
    yeah look and by the way you're ugly
  • 47:42
    you're fat and ugly like me I got to
  • 47:44
    rest we belong on a podcast my friend we
  • 47:47
    don't belong on video anymore okay I I
  • 47:54
    have to say the thing about yeah people
  • 47:56
    do mention well I was just doing
  • 47:59
    pictures in the video I don't know what
  • 48:01
    the point of the video is if you can
  • 48:03
    listen to a podcast it's not that hard
  • 48:04
    to just listen instead of have to stare
  • 48:08
    at a screen with pretty pictures mm-hmm
  • 48:11
    I never been people just roller
  • 48:14
    enamoured well you know all the money
  • 48:16
    you make from YouTube yeah don't worry
  • 48:21
    here we are kicked off it's like it's
  • 48:23
    only a matter of time that's so typical
  • 48:27
    let's talk about 2020 for a second I
  • 48:31
    don't know if you have anything or give
  • 48:34
    us an update who's the from the cosmic
  • 48:37
    weenie report card who's the
  • 48:38
    front-runner right now is that still Joe
  • 48:40
    Biden no no it hasn't been Joe Biden for
  • 48:42
    weeks you should get update that thing
  • 48:44
    with a version number okay so what is
  • 48:47
    the latest on the burger
  • 48:48
    Bernie's number one burning Biden's
  • 48:52
    number two and Hillary's number three
  • 48:53
    well let's look at this here's Biden
  • 48:57
    saying something very interesting why is
  • 49:00
    it not starting oh there we go
  • 49:02
    meanwhile Joe Biden playing down the
  • 49:05
    economics threat from China
  • 49:07
    watch this they can't even figure out
  • 49:15
    how to deal with the the the the fact
  • 49:18
    that they have this great division
  • 49:20
    between
  • 49:21
    the China Sea and the mountains and the
  • 49:23
    East here in the West
  • 49:25
    I mean they have this great division
  • 49:35
    between the China Sea and the mountains
  • 49:38
    in the East I mean in the way
  • 49:45
    competition for us exactly they're no
  • 49:50
    competition for us oh okay manufacturing
  • 49:54
    jobs is who's he kidding this guy well
  • 49:56
    not a lot of it by the way there's been
  • 49:58
    a lot of weird and odd anti-chinese
  • 50:01
    stuff being posted on YouTube ah well
  • 50:04
    this is all part of the plan it's the
  • 50:07
    one that you predicted because Hillary
  • 50:09
    is about to run there's no doubt about
  • 50:12
    it and she went on Rachel Maddow and
  • 50:14
    this is what she did since Russia is
  • 50:16
    clearly backing Republicans
  • 50:19
    we asked China to back us I hereby
  • 50:22
    tonight ask China that's right and not
  • 50:25
    only that China if you're listening why
  • 50:28
    don't you get Trump's tax returns I'm
  • 50:30
    sure our media would richly reward you
  • 50:34
    now according to the Muller report that
  • 50:37
    is not conspiracy because it's done
  • 50:40
    right out in the open so if after this
  • 50:43
    hypothetical Democratic candidate says
  • 50:46
    this on your show
  • 50:47
    within hours all of a sudden the IRS
  • 50:51
    offices are bombarded with incredibly
  • 50:54
    sophisticated cyber tools hey you need
  • 50:59
    to reset your password moron okay that's
  • 51:02
    sophisticated looking for Trump's tax
  • 51:05
    returns and then extracts them and then
  • 51:08
    passes them to whatever the new
  • 51:10
    WikiLeaks happens to be no agenda show
  • 51:13
    and they start being unraveled and
  • 51:15
    disclosed nothing wrong with that I mean
  • 51:19
    if you're going to let Russia get away
  • 51:21
    with what they did and are still doing
  • 51:23
    according to Christopher array the
  • 51:25
    current FBI director who said that last
  • 51:27
    week they're in our election systems
  • 51:30
    we're worried about 2020 he said so hey
  • 51:34
    let's have a great power contest and
  • 51:37
    let's get the Chinese in on the side of
  • 51:39
    somebody else just saying that shows how
  • 51:42
    absurd the situation we find ourselves
  • 51:44
    in yeah what you just said really took
  • 51:47
    it to a new level have the Chinese back
  • 51:50
    the Democrats and Joe saying come on man
  • 51:54
    they can D they can't do nothing that's
  • 51:57
    and I have some interesting China stuff
  • 51:59
    after our break but just do they think
  • 52:03
    that this strategy is appealing to
  • 52:06
    anybody but they're very very core you
  • 52:10
    know the 20 percent of people that would
  • 52:12
    vote for Hillary if she was a you know a
  • 52:15
    serial killer look she's going after all
  • 52:19
    demographics she's she's setting it up
  • 52:21
    she's getting ready CBS this morning had
  • 52:24
    a very bizarre piece with the comedian
  • 52:28
    his name is
  • 52:30
    Jordan Klepper and he I've not heard of
  • 52:34
    him the whole segment is not funny but
  • 52:37
    he he has a show on Comedy Central and
  • 52:41
    so he's sitting with Bill and Hillary
  • 52:43
    and he's walking through that he wants
  • 52:45
    to get in on the crowdfunding craze and
  • 52:49
    he wants to crowdfund something so he
  • 52:51
    brings in advisors this is part of the
  • 52:53
    gag Bill and Hillary huh yeah I know
  • 52:58
    it's been going this clips going around
  • 53:00
    a good clip here's an interesting one
  • 53:03
    fund a audiobook of the Mulder report as
  • 53:06
    read by Hillary Clinton oh gosh I would
  • 53:09
    definitely contribute to that yeah sure
  • 53:11
    it would take a long time to record that
  • 53:14
    I think you need two weeks Allah
  • 53:15
    suggests yeah lots and lots of los
  • 53:18
    inches why am i crowdfunding audiobooks
  • 53:20
    with the Clintons for the last six
  • 53:22
    months for my new show I've been on the
  • 53:24
    front lines of American activism I've
  • 53:26
    seen people run for office sink boats
  • 53:28
    and get arrested enacting change is hard
  • 53:30
    but this week we saw real difference
  • 53:32
    made from of all things the Internet
  • 53:35
    a GoFundMe sort to its goal of more than
  • 53:38
    1.8 million dollars overnight I wanted
  • 53:41
    in on the crowdsourcing game so I
  • 53:43
    brought in some trusty advisors you guys
  • 53:46
    need to help me spend a thousand of my
  • 53:47
    own dollars on worthwhile causes that
  • 53:50
    are hopefully gonna make for a better
  • 53:51
    future let's try all right somebody's
  • 53:54
    trying to raise money to take a law
  • 53:55
    class to impeach Donald Trump you know
  • 53:57
    unless this person is already in the
  • 53:59
    Congress this is guy who just wants to
  • 54:01
    take a few law classes to attempt to
  • 54:02
    impeach double trouble yeah but he's
  • 54:04
    done in a position to do that we gotta
  • 54:06
    really digest what's in the motor report
  • 54:08
    cuz we know what the Attorney General
  • 54:09
    said about it it's not true listen to
  • 54:11
    Bill Mann bill is on the ropes again
  • 54:16
    maybe we should send him to loss we're a
  • 54:18
    no on this guy who wants to take a long
  • 54:21
    class - okay but we should start a
  • 54:25
    Kickstarter to send
  • 54:27
    bar back to law school for continuing
  • 54:29
    legal education right now somebody went
  • 54:31
    fund his continuing legal education I
  • 54:33
    would be for that poor bill
  • 54:38
    maybe I mean I think I need to bring her
  • 54:41
    back didn't you mentions to me the other
  • 54:43
    day we got to bring it back bill to do
  • 54:46
    it Bill's on the block and I think he I
  • 54:48
    think he's seriously on the block
  • 54:50
    there's a push Hillary right to the
  • 54:52
    forefront that would be I mean would
  • 54:54
    cosmic weenie put her at the top on the
  • 54:56
    report card if bill kicked absolutely in
  • 54:59
    the saddle that was that was part of the
  • 55:01
    deal remember that that's that was that
  • 55:05
    was a cosmic weenie list update him on
  • 55:08
    that oh my goodness this you're gonna
  • 55:13
    play the clip where Hillary read from
  • 55:15
    the no no did the whole thing but none
  • 55:18
    of it was funny no no it was decidedly
  • 55:22
    unfunny and why is CBS running this as a
  • 55:26
    morning show segment I mean this is this
  • 55:28
    gives me everything to believe she's
  • 55:30
    ready to get back into the game there
  • 55:32
    needs to be some well maybe that maybe
  • 55:34
    this bar controversy is what she's
  • 55:37
    looking for but there's got to be some
  • 55:39
    thing that she's not going on Rachel
  • 55:42
    Maddow to say and I think didn't even
  • 55:44
    say some Democratic candidate in that
  • 55:46
    clip I don't know actually
  • 55:49
    you know I'll tell you this is that she
  • 55:51
    doesn't have a book out and she's
  • 55:53
    getting booked on these things there's
  • 55:54
    got to be some reason other than she
  • 55:56
    really doesn't go floating around unless
  • 55:58
    she's either running for office or she
  • 56:00
    has a book there's no book right so
  • 56:05
    she's running for office boom you just
  • 56:08
    listen to that Rachel Maddow clip again
  • 56:10
    not the whole thing but I think it's in
  • 56:12
    the beginning she says Russia is clearly
  • 56:14
    but why don't we ask China to back us I
  • 56:18
    hear by tonight ask China that's right
  • 56:20
    and not only that China if you're
  • 56:22
    listening why don't you get Trump's tax
  • 56:25
    returns I'm sure our media would richly
  • 56:28
    reward you now according to the Muller
  • 56:32
    report
  • 56:33
    is not conspiracy because it's done
  • 56:36
    right out in the open so if after this
  • 56:39
    hypothetical Democratic candidate says
  • 56:42
    this line now do you hear how she said
  • 56:44
    that I think that's something something
  • 56:47
    wanting to come out about her running
  • 56:51
    unright out in the open people don't get
  • 56:55
    a clue about this here it is if after
  • 56:57
    this hypothetical Democratic candidate
  • 57:00
    says yeah I think it's pretty clear
  • 57:05
    hypothetical mm-hmm beautiful beautiful
  • 57:09
    uh one of the ones she's also in this I
  • 57:16
    have a little medley of electoral
  • 57:19
    college people you can recognize each
  • 57:22
    each of their voices who all want to do
  • 57:26
    away hillary why is Hillary give a crap
  • 57:28
    at this point unless she's running again
  • 57:30
    to get rid of the Electoral College
  • 57:31
    you'll hear her voice in here well some
  • 57:33
    things that I would like to change one
  • 57:36
    is the Electoral College the Electoral
  • 57:39
    College needs to go and maybe we might
  • 57:41
    want to take a look at the whole
  • 57:43
    Electoral College I think it needs to be
  • 57:46
    eliminated I'd like to see us move
  • 57:48
    beyond it yes and that means get rid of
  • 57:51
    the electoral college
  • 57:53
    I think it's excuse me worthwhile does
  • 57:57
    you do it so well - once again explain
  • 57:59
    why we have the Electoral College and
  • 58:02
    what it's supposed to protect if it's
  • 58:04
    what its function is its function and it
  • 58:07
    works very well apparently its function
  • 58:10
    is to keep bad actors out of the
  • 58:12
    presidency and how it works obviously if
  • 58:16
    people should know this is that you have
  • 58:18
    every state has a number of electoral
  • 58:20
    votes and it's it's fixed at that number
  • 58:23
    that's to determine it it's determined
  • 58:25
    by their population but it's not a
  • 58:27
    direct direct reflection of the
  • 58:29
    population because sometimes as some
  • 58:31
    states will be kind of over-represented
  • 58:33
    by the electoral college and the idea is
  • 58:35
    is that when the votes come in the state
  • 58:38
    that wins they get all the elector it
  • 58:40
    depends on the state they can choose to
  • 58:42
    do whatever they want but generally
  • 58:43
    speaking even though there's some people
  • 58:44
    are there's a new move yeah
  • 58:46
    talked about that about the but the
  • 58:48
    generally speaking that state votes 70%
  • 58:52
    for Hillary and 30% for Trump the
  • 58:54
    electoral votes go for Hillary the
  • 58:58
    states that vote 51% for Trump and 50%
  • 59:03
    for Hillary that goes to trump and the
  • 59:05
    idea is it's a balancing it's
  • 59:07
    load-balancing god it's the key it's to
  • 59:10
    keep the two big states like California
  • 59:13
    that have that locked out Trump because
  • 59:15
    it's run by the state is corruptly run
  • 59:17
    100% by the Democrats and the devote
  • 59:21
    kind of was like 70 230 it was something
  • 59:25
    along the coastlines and it turned out
  • 59:27
    to have four million more votes for
  • 59:30
    Hillary than Trump when most states had
  • 59:32
    like 20,000 more or 50,000 more or
  • 59:35
    something reasonable so the popular vote
  • 59:39
    if it's if it's eliminated and you only
  • 59:42
    go through the electoral vote you it it
  • 59:44
    eliminates the chance of two or three
  • 59:46
    big states loading up just loading up
  • 59:51
    and pushing through whoever they these
  • 59:53
    big three states want because they've
  • 59:55
    got so much population that they can
  • 59:58
    they can be over-represented and so it's
  • 1:00:01
    it ruins the idea of our federal
  • 1:00:03
    government we're a federal we're I'm
  • 1:00:05
    sorry i we're a federation states yes
  • 1:00:09
    we're a republic and republics aren't
  • 1:00:12
    democracies and they keep using this way
  • 1:00:14
    the Democrats keep saying democracy
  • 1:00:15
    democracy democracy when it's a republic
  • 1:00:18
    that we are and a republic is balance so
  • 1:00:20
    you don't have the tyranny of the
  • 1:00:22
    majority which is the problem with
  • 1:00:24
    democracies and that's what's actually
  • 1:00:25
    going on no one ever brings this up and
  • 1:00:27
    we don't for some reason but we don't
  • 1:00:29
    bring it up in the brexit vote that
  • 1:00:32
    brexit vote which was 51% of 49 is
  • 1:00:35
    something along those lines 3% I think
  • 1:00:37
    was the difference that's two but that
  • 1:00:41
    is that that's how a tyranny of a
  • 1:00:42
    democracy works where doesn't this right
  • 1:00:49
    yet there's the tyranny of the democracy
  • 1:00:50
    that's a very good point
  • 1:00:52
    it's a tyranny of the majority of the de
  • 1:00:54
    Martian the majority can be a tyranny
  • 1:00:56
    very easily because if you especially
  • 1:00:58
    people come out to vote like it the
  • 1:00:59
    brexit vote
  • 1:01:00
    all the youngsters that were all there
  • 1:01:03
    all pro-eu they don't even want to be
  • 1:01:04
    British they didn't even bother who
  • 1:01:07
    cares but there was a minute they lost
  • 1:01:09
    the vote and the next thing you know
  • 1:01:11
    they're all bent out of shape well there
  • 1:01:13
    this is an example of what democracies
  • 1:01:15
    and aren't that great that's a good
  • 1:01:18
    example Pelosi for some reason was in
  • 1:01:21
    London doing the rounds because he has
  • 1:01:23
    to work for the people of California can
  • 1:01:26
    she was on the London School of
  • 1:01:28
    Economics podcast the very short clip of
  • 1:01:30
    a brexit usually when we come here we're
  • 1:01:32
    talking about national security we're
  • 1:01:34
    talking about intelligence we're talking
  • 1:01:36
    about the economy we're talking about so
  • 1:01:38
    many things and this time it's brexit
  • 1:01:40
    that's impressive but I'm not a good
  • 1:01:43
    place to talk about the system but I
  • 1:01:46
    wish you'd done a little more pronounced
  • 1:01:48
    because it is a nicer but it's it's not
  • 1:01:52
    like the jobs thing wish you really
  • 1:01:54
    yells it out no it's too bad by the way
  • 1:01:58
    I think we passed up I wanted to make
  • 1:02:00
    sure that you know about this I so I
  • 1:02:02
    took from that Nadler committee little
  • 1:02:05
    it let me check it out mr. chairman
  • 1:02:06
    moved the table sure when I moved to
  • 1:02:08
    amend Larrick miss Cheerilee I moved to
  • 1:02:09
    adjourn
  • 1:02:12
    it's not really funny it's okay it
  • 1:02:18
    wasn't tight just one more thing about
  • 1:02:20
    the electoral college didn't Bush jr.
  • 1:02:24
    win through the electoral college and
  • 1:02:26
    not the popular vote well that that was
  • 1:02:30
    the close one where they that's not
  • 1:02:32
    absolutely necessarily true because of
  • 1:02:34
    the Florida vote but yeah well then how
  • 1:02:38
    did how did it save us from tyranny Al

  • 1:03:28
    of admission which is free so that is no
  • 1:03:30
    agenda stream dot-com also in the
  • 1:03:33
    morning to cesium-137 s been a while
  • 1:03:37
    since cesium has scored the artwork for
  • 1:03:41
    episode 11 33 no apology and there was a
  • 1:03:45
    number of different choices we could
  • 1:03:47
    make this was the the redacted part from
  • 1:03:50
    the Muller report which reveals that no
  • 1:03:52
    agenda is the best podcast in the
  • 1:03:54
    universe and there was a good piece and
  • 1:03:57
    then I think a lot of people got the
  • 1:03:58
    joke oh you were gonna comment on the
  • 1:04:02
    redaction oh yeah well I hate to
  • 1:04:07
    backseat Drive yes the artist backseat
  • 1:04:11
    drive well no I wasn't going to say this
  • 1:04:13
    on the show but while we were talking
  • 1:04:15
    about it the only thing I don't like
  • 1:04:16
    about it is the redaction marks are not
  • 1:04:19
    the way they look in real life they're
  • 1:04:21
    square they have sharp edges and this
  • 1:04:23
    was all fuzzy so
  • 1:04:25
    it was a I mean maybe if you're a
  • 1:04:27
    redaction from the 70s it might look
  • 1:04:29
    like that but I don't know it's okay I'm
  • 1:04:31
    I love the peace and I thank cesium-137
  • 1:04:34
    very much yourself peddled that also
  • 1:04:37
    thank you Paul sir Paul for upgrading
  • 1:04:41
    the art generator over the last couple
  • 1:04:43
    of days he announced it to us that is
  • 1:04:47
    it's running of course these guys work
  • 1:04:49
    hard they work their asses off when I
  • 1:04:52
    was doing the newsletter I know a lot of
  • 1:04:53
    people were complaining about it but hey
  • 1:04:55
    you know the thing is he gave me a heads
  • 1:04:58
    up if anybody bitch to me yeah and we
  • 1:05:01
    now have at this point oh my goodness we
  • 1:05:04
    must have over 11,000 pieces of art
  • 1:05:07
    maybe I think in the know 13,000 403 has
  • 1:05:11
    it right now no agenda arc generator
  • 1:05:13
    calm the grower place it's a great place
  • 1:05:16
    to to upload your art if you want to for
  • 1:05:18
    the show it's a part of the value for
  • 1:05:19
    value Network you know it's a lot place
  • 1:05:21
    to go get ideas this too but for us it's
  • 1:05:27
    it's really fantastic it makes a huge
  • 1:05:30
    difference in most of these pot a lot of
  • 1:05:32
    podcasting apps on all of them adhere to
  • 1:05:34
    it I mean the art changes people
  • 1:05:35
    people's attention is drawn to it and
  • 1:05:37
    they click on it which is a good way to
  • 1:05:40
    go it's probably the only discovery
  • 1:05:41
    mechanism we really have and I think
  • 1:05:44
    discovery mechanisms are mechanisms are
  • 1:05:46
    kind of BS anyway you know that's not
  • 1:05:49
    the big thing and we've heard it with
  • 1:05:51
    blogs and we heard it with every other
  • 1:05:53
    thing I need we need discovery so people
  • 1:05:57
    could discover discover shows it's not
  • 1:06:00
    how it works
  • 1:06:01
    that gave into SEO Spotify is not making
  • 1:06:07
    discoverability very good well now who
  • 1:06:09
    cares SEO expert what these people are
  • 1:06:14

    pretty notes I'm a bit late with my 29
  • 1:07:14
    2019 Omnibus Budget submission for the
  • 1:07:17
    first two quarters but here it is we got
  • 1:07:21
    hit by a new salt limitation in
  • 1:07:23
    California and did some temporary
  • 1:07:25
    sequestering to get the budget back on
  • 1:07:28
    track two quick stories one I had back
  • 1:07:34
    surgery this month while lying in my
  • 1:07:36
    hospital room after surgery a young lady
  • 1:07:39
    walked up to the machine near my bed by
  • 1:07:42
    the way if you've ever seen these I know
  • 1:07:43
    if these commercials are all over the
  • 1:07:45
    country or not but there's these
  • 1:07:48
    commercials called it just okay isn't
  • 1:07:51
    good enough
  • 1:07:51
    yeah I've seen their 18t commercials and
  • 1:07:54
    they have these these boneheads
  • 1:07:56
    situations where somebody's there just
  • 1:08:01
    don't know what they're doing but your
  • 1:08:03
    life is in their hands kind of thing hmm
  • 1:08:05
    this fish is raw is my favorite so he's
  • 1:08:10
    describing one of these situations he
  • 1:08:12
    walked up to the machine near my bed and
  • 1:08:13
    starts pushing buttons while saying
  • 1:08:15
    paraphrasing like I'm so disorganized
  • 1:08:18
    today like I just like I walked into the
  • 1:08:20
    wrong room but like I'm okay now I think
  • 1:08:23
    I'll get back on track like I should
  • 1:08:26
    because I know better to take them to
  • 1:08:28
    take four days off cuz like Netflix
  • 1:08:32
    overload really that's apparently yeah
  • 1:08:36
    she's poking buttons oh my goodness
  • 1:08:38
    machetes with doctor no damn nurses are
  • 1:08:42
    rude the day when Millennials entered
  • 1:08:44
    the workforce and started running things
  • 1:08:46
    that we depend on is your doom
  • 1:08:49
    we're all doomed that day is here me me
  • 1:08:53
    constantly bitches about this particular
  • 1:08:55
    phenomenon the Millennials are now
  • 1:08:57
    bitching about the Zoomers well they
  • 1:09:01
    should look in the mirror I see yes old
  • 1:09:05
    man they just got it yes you're lying in
  • 1:09:09
    that bed I did some serious ruing too
  • 1:09:14
    when my sweetheart picked up my
  • 1:09:16
    prescription for oxycodone the
  • 1:09:19
    pharmacist handed her a box of nasal
  • 1:09:21
    spray she said she didn't need nasal
  • 1:09:25
    spray thank you the pharmacist told her
  • 1:09:28
    that California regulations now required
  • 1:09:31
    that the sale of a dose of narcan with
  • 1:09:34
    every every opioid prescription that
  • 1:09:37
    contained enough pills to cause an
  • 1:09:39
    accidental overdose oh I didn't know
  • 1:09:42
    that I didn't know this either that's
  • 1:09:44
    regulation huh
  • 1:09:45
    yeah so you get we looked at that it's a
  • 1:09:54
    private company you can't that's the
  • 1:09:56
    problem their private their copay was 11
  • 1:09:59
    bucks the pharmacist said that he's
  • 1:10:01
    dealt with more than a few people cannot
  • 1:10:03
    afford their co-pays often as high as
  • 1:10:05
    $50 so he cannot sell them their
  • 1:10:07
    prescription pain meds make of that what
  • 1:10:11
    you will
  • 1:10:11
    no jingles but I could use a bit more of
  • 1:10:13
    your health Karma thank you very
  • 1:10:15
    respectfully getting his name AJ AG hey
  • 1:10:26
    maybe maybe the the heroin drug dealer
  • 1:10:30
    should have be handed out narcan with
  • 1:10:31
    their with their packages if they get
  • 1:10:34
    this price 11 bucks cost hundreds you
  • 1:10:38
    know just on that I mentioned
  • 1:10:40
    graciella's Sciences scientists check
  • 1:10:43
    his wife or guess it's his wife I mean
  • 1:10:47
    who else would be called Grace yellow
  • 1:10:49
    his nurse his nurse his handler could be
  • 1:10:53
    any may be a strand lurk could be
  • 1:10:54
    similar but I thought that was sweet you
  • 1:10:57
    know that there's fights going on in
  • 1:10:58
    Dutch pharmacies
  • 1:11:01
    but yeah the couldn't if they have the
  • 1:11:04
    basic idea of single health the
  • 1:11:08
    single-payer although there I mean it's
  • 1:11:11
    not exactly like that but it's very much
  • 1:11:13
    kind of an Obamacare Medicare type
  • 1:11:15
    system and so the insurance companies
  • 1:11:18
    run everything and now people are going
  • 1:11:21
    into the pharmacy to get their drugs of
  • 1:11:23
    course these insurance companies only
  • 1:11:26
    want the cheapest generics and what
  • 1:11:28
    happens now is that the the companies
  • 1:11:31
    aren't making and distributing drugs to
  • 1:11:35
    these countries because the demand is so
  • 1:11:36
    low and then all of a sudden they run
  • 1:11:38
    out so they keep running out of you know
  • 1:11:40
    important things for people oh yes
  • 1:11:43
    they're running out of medication people
  • 1:11:45
    are freaking out and in this thing I
  • 1:11:47
    don't want this cheap ass I want the
  • 1:11:48
    expense I want the the brand name and
  • 1:11:50
    they can't get it and yeah well the
  • 1:11:52
    Dutch they got here if they're going to
  • 1:11:55
    recommence brand name it says brand name
  • 1:11:57
    only mm-hmm do you have to get the brand
  • 1:12:00
    name you can't get the generic oh that's
  • 1:12:01
    not that that's not the case with the
  • 1:12:03
    new system no no you get the generic and
  • 1:12:07
    if the generic is out tough luck you
  • 1:12:08
    come back in a week it's fantastic
  • 1:12:12
    well that's no good if you need to drug

  • 1:12:42
    would read the end of the note versus

  • 1:12:59
    666 thanks for all the producers
  • 1:13:02
    continued Peabody Award level value on
  • 1:13:04
    this show consistent persistent
  • 1:13:05
    unparalleled news deconstruction like it
  • 1:13:09
    mm-hmm
  • 1:13:09
    John you said you wanted to know about
  • 1:13:12
    my travel so here's my view from 42
  • 1:13:14
    thousand feet today Wednesday's are five
  • 1:13:18
    days or fewer the experience is taxi
  • 1:13:22
    uber lyft Kareem track don't know what
  • 1:13:24
    that is but apparently it's some
  • 1:13:26
    competitor
  • 1:13:27
    Kareem track someone should look that up
  • 1:13:29
    ciear EEM airport airplane taxi Hotel
  • 1:13:33
    taxi meetings taxi Hotel taxi Airport
  • 1:13:36
    airplane repeat airline food has
  • 1:13:39
    deteriorated to levels not seen in a
  • 1:13:41
    decade
  • 1:13:41
    hotels are portraying better services
  • 1:13:44
    but like the Gilded Age it is often
  • 1:13:47
    superficial partly because the help is
  • 1:13:49
    under trained yeah but good tipping in
  • 1:13:53
    dollars always attracts the best
  • 1:13:55
    services currency issues are more often
  • 1:13:59
    discussed as the dollar strength and
  • 1:14:00
    fear of devaluation or terrorists make
  • 1:14:03
    long-term investment more challenging
  • 1:14:05
    religious differences sectarian issues
  • 1:14:08
    are being downplayed in the press and
  • 1:14:10
    harmony is discussed your know your you
  • 1:14:14
    note this trend on your show and I see
  • 1:14:16
    it more broadly with with Brenton Durant
  • 1:14:20
    being an international example na crisis
  • 1:14:25
    what does the christ-child fish another
  • 1:14:27
    Christchurch the effort to make the no
  • 1:14:30
    trade on fire a religious reawakening
  • 1:14:32
    towards national unity seems to be
  • 1:14:34
    failing by the way just before I want to
  • 1:14:37
    get this up before I forget apparently
