    Valley where global warming is freezing
  • 0:26

  • 0:38
    supposed to be warm and hot it will hear
  • 0:40
    it's supposed to be summer we have our
  • 0:43
    summer in May June a little bit and then
  • 0:45
    it gets cold I mean normally because it
  • 0:47
    fogs up no it's been there has not been
  • 0:49
    one day of warm weather since mid April
  • 0:53
    for 11 years we've been saying whatever
  • 0:57
    the government says go the other
  • 0:58
    direction it's a sure bet yeah of course
  • 1:06
    we still believe in the 70s global
  • 1:09
    climate change stuff yeah global cooling
  • 1:13
    we're all gonna die from from from
  • 1:14
    gorilla frost yes cooling cooling
  • 1:17
    cooling all right well it's been a
  • 1:23
    pretty interesting day those days just
  • 1:27
    getting started here yeah well the
  • 1:29
    sideshow is still on in full effect the
  • 1:33
    embarrassment both sides it's an
  • 1:37
    embarrassment to both sides it's an
  • 1:38
    embarrassment to the American news media
  • 1:40
    which I'm sure is in turn creating an
  • 1:43
    embarrassment for world press this
  • 1:46
    sideshow is just terrific so we had this
  • 1:50
    one woman Mary Scanlon actually a middle
  • 1:55
    name on the Cairo's Mary gay Scanlon mhm
  • 2:00
    G a ye know just GA Y straight up gay um
  • 2:05
    going on about how it's so obvious that
  • 2:09
    the Mulla report indicated that could be
  • 2:11
    there was Russian Kalu
  • 2:12
    they can't get off this thing and then
  • 2:15
    they had this woman Escobar come on and
  • 2:18
    she goes I've gotta get these clips I
  • 2:19
    didn't get to couldn't catch him soon
  • 2:22
    enough she goes on saying the mullah
  • 2:24
    report clearly indicates that there was
  • 2:26
    Russian collusion and clearly indicates
  • 2:29
    that Trump clearly indicated Trump was
  • 2:34
    obstructing justice trying to cover up
  • 2:36
    the obvious Russian collusion 11 times
  • 2:39
    and it says though that they either
  • 2:43
    didn't read they don't care what the
  • 2:44
    report said and then they have to scan
  • 2:48
    like goes on she says we're not asking
  • 2:50
    for bar to break the law he just has to
  • 2:52
    give us the whole report yeah which
  • 2:56
    would be breaking the law I mean the law
  • 2:58
    could be changed obviously changed the
  • 3:01
    law you guys now my favorite is
  • 3:02
    constitutional crisis no longer co-equal
  • 3:05
    branches of government we're all going
  • 3:08
    to die I did have something on yeah yes
  • 3:16
    was it
  • 3:18
    let me see where the hell was that I had
  • 3:20
    a Judge Napolitano who ever since he's
  • 3:24
    been relegated to Fox nation.com with
  • 3:29
    Tommy Lehren as his boss he's yes he
  • 3:35
    he's he's really come out anti anti
  • 3:38
    Trump which I don't remember him as
  • 3:40
    being I thought it was exactly the
  • 3:43
    opposite so it was very interesting to
  • 3:44
    listen to him and he had a great little
  • 3:47
    piece on bar on bars background before
  • 3:51
    you go on that night you mentioned it
  • 3:53
    I'm now reminded now that you mentioned
  • 3:56
    that he's used to be pro Trump now he's
  • 3:58
    a teacher I'm reminded of the worldwide
  • 4:00
    Wrestling Federation or worldwide
  • 4:02
    Wrestling Entertainment yeah we got a
  • 4:07
    flip we got to be against this guy and
  • 4:09
    then the bad guy is the good guy and
  • 4:10
    then we bring in the Samoan twins
  • 4:14
    yes well here's the Samoan one twin
  • 4:17
    Judge Napolitano
  • 4:18
    speaking of dilbar who he knows quite
  • 4:21
    well it is for a particularly bad
  • 4:23
    Attorney General oh look
  • 4:26
    question is that doesn't matter this is
  • 4:29
    reason TV so yeah it stands to reason
  • 4:33
    they'd have a question like this but the
  • 4:35
    answer is it's even more fun right is
  • 4:37
    bar a particularly bad Attorney General
  • 4:39
    Oh Nick I mean the built bar that I know
  • 4:44
    when he was the head of the Office of
  • 4:47
    Legal Counsel in the early years of the
  • 4:50
    George HW Bush administration so that's
  • 4:52
    the think tank within the DOJ that tells
  • 4:55
    the rest of the DOJ what the law means
  • 4:56
    and from there he became the Attorney
  • 4:58
    General wrote the original memo to the
  • 5:01
    president about the constitutionality
  • 5:03
    and virtues of mass warrantless
  • 5:07
    surveillance so right there it's very
  • 5:10
    difficult for me to find good about him
  • 5:13
    it would be an unbelievable good would
  • 5:15
    be angels coming down from heaven that
  • 5:16
    good to outweigh an evil that pernicious
  • 5:19
    and pervasive because from that single
  • 5:21
    memo developed the 60,000 domestic spies
  • 5:25
    we have now that work for the NSA yeah
  • 5:30
    good work bar this makes total sense to
  • 5:35
    me
  • 5:36
    this is exactly the guy you want in
  • 5:37
    there to protect to have Mahler's back
  • 5:42
    he knows Moloch when in cleaned up now
  • 5:45
    bars got to come in he's someone's got
  • 5:47
    to be the Patsy someone's got to go down
  • 5:49
    that's his job and he'll protect
  • 5:50
    everybody else he knows how it works he
  • 5:53
    knows the system he was a part of it
  • 5:55
    well nobody's looking at it that way we
  • 6:00
    we what we we were objective the way the
  • 6:07
    right-wing is seeing this is the bar is
  • 6:11
    coming in they're not to protect people
  • 6:13
    but to indict yeah it's gonna get
  • 6:17
    everybody how doubtful is that don't buy
  • 6:22
    it because I see no evidence of it and
  • 6:24
    he hasn't indicted one person no
  • 6:27
    someone's gonna go down I'm not sure if
  • 6:30
    it's I mean the the problem is the is
  • 6:34
    the CIA stuff and the the Brennan you
  • 6:38
    know the entrapping
  • 6:39
    Papadopoulos or not really it mean honey
  • 6:42
    traffic and really and trying to give
  • 6:45
    him information that they could say he
  • 6:46
    then had and was trying to do something
  • 6:49
    with and therefore justify their their
  • 6:52
    their spying warrants actually ahead of
  • 6:54
    I had another clip about that let me see
  • 6:58
    where was that yes this is and I learned
  • 7:01
    a new term from this Jodha Genoa the
  • 7:04
    Genoa who is a former US attorney but
  • 7:08
    now he's kind of like a Fox and Friends
  • 7:10
    guy I like this guy what he has to say
  • 7:16
    but I think it's just piled high with
  • 7:19
    wishful thinking I completely agree but
  • 7:25
    I did like the new term we learned I
  • 7:27
    want to switch gears here and ask you
  • 7:28
    about this news out of the New York
  • 7:30
    Times last week about a spy that was
  • 7:32
    placed another spy that was placed on
  • 7:34
    George papadopolis in September of 2016
  • 7:37
    identifying herself as Ezra Turk we know
  • 7:40
    thanks to the New York Times reporter
  • 7:42
    who went on CNN and said this that she
  • 7:44
    was not an FBI agent she was a
  • 7:46
    government investigator sent by the FBI
  • 7:48
    and he's not willing to be more specific
  • 7:50
    what does this tell you well her name is
  • 7:53
    Ezra Turk which of course is her no
  • 7:55
    mogera
  • 7:56
    her wor name it's not a real name she is
  • 7:59
    what they call in the business a spy
  • 8:01
    slut she was used did they call it
  • 8:04
    honeypot have you ever heard this one no
  • 8:09
    in Perkins and his economic hitman book
  • 8:13
    oh it was a spy slut that got him
  • 8:16
    involved with being an economic hitman
  • 8:17
    right now we've heard of honey pots but
  • 8:20
    spy slut
  • 8:21
    this is a good one and that's in
  • 8:22
    delicious better coordination well we
  • 8:26
    call it the biz hey we got that spy slut
  • 8:29
    from Turkey on that yet
  • 8:31
    and he has a little bit more to say but
  • 8:33
    just this is the most important part was
  • 8:36
    the neuter it heard nome de Guerre her
  • 8:38
    wor name it's not a real name
  • 8:40
    she is what they call in the business a
  • 8:43
    five flood he was you did they call it
  • 8:46
    honeypot that's a business term the
  • 8:48
    spice like that at the agency called the
  • 8:51
    spice well she is was used by the agency
  • 8:55
    to entrap Papadopoulos let's remember
  • 8:57
    what all business is all about George
  • 9:00
    papadopolis was nobody he knew no
  • 9:03
    Russian he had never been to Russia he
  • 9:05
    didn't even read anything about Russia
  • 9:07
    what was happening here this is what
  • 9:10
    John Brennan set up along with Comey
  • 9:12
    they put agents of the United States
  • 9:14
    government and foreign assets from other
  • 9:17
    intelligence services in play to plant
  • 9:20
    information with Papadopoulos that he
  • 9:24
    would repeat back to some other foreign
  • 9:26
    intelligence services who would then
  • 9:28
    feed it to the FBI and create a basis
  • 9:31
    for a FISA warrant or an arrest
  • 9:33
    when Papadopoulos returns to the United
  • 9:35
    States from overseas make no mistake
  • 9:37
    about it this had nothing to do with
  • 9:39
    collecting intelligence from
  • 9:41
    Papadopoulos it had everything to do
  • 9:43
    with planting intelligence with
  • 9:46
    Papadopoulos he was being used to create
  • 9:49
    a false narrative to entrench to frame
  • 9:52
    the incoming president of the United
  • 9:55
    States there you go I think that sounds
  • 9:58
    believable believable but it was a huge
  • 10:02
    blunder because the Papadopoulos
  • 10:04
    character if you ever seen him interview
  • 10:05
    anything as such it sounds like I
  • 10:18
    swallowed my Yeti instead of alright
  • 10:21
    breathe the teen says well alright okay
  • 10:24
    he started I think he's still an
  • 10:26
    innocent guy who's he's just kind of
  • 10:30
    this he's a dummy yeah when you told me
  • 10:34
    this okay well but yeah you should pass
  • 10:36
    it on yeah if I remember you know yeah
  • 10:40
    it was a it was the wrong guy
  • 10:43
    you mean the wrong guy I know he was the
  • 10:45
    perfect guy to plant on I think was the
  • 10:47
    perfect guy it was the wrong guy cuz he
  • 10:49
    didn't do any real damage I love how
  • 10:50
    he's talking about this Asura Turk any
  • 10:53
    interviews he's like well she was very
  • 10:55
    flirtatious but of course I didn't I
  • 10:56
    didn't fall for that mm-hmm okay George
  • 11:02
    he's got this hot Italian lawyer wife
  • 11:05
    who hangs out with she's very very smart
  • 11:07
    and I just wonder it's like you know
  • 11:10
    Papadopoulos
  • 11:11
    you cheater I'll bill you out but you're
  • 11:14
    my bitch from now on so there's no
  • 11:19
    evidence that anything happened no but
  • 11:21
    we do know we'd have a name at least
  • 11:23
    spies slut sounds so great I'd love to
  • 11:25
    hear that on CNN sure the women in the
  • 11:27
    agencies love the terms oh yes well I
  • 11:29
    can be a dude you can have dude sluts
  • 11:32
    yeah which not as offensive really is an
  • 11:38
    offensive term I wouldn't want to be
  • 11:39
    called a slut yes see it's not offensive
  • 11:42
    you actually liked the idea no I said
  • 11:44
    they do making it even worse do not want
  • 11:47
    to be called the slut is what I said I
  • 11:49
    don't like the idea
  • 11:50
    oh I thought you said you wanted to be
  • 11:52
    Co Oh what makes more sense do you have
  • 11:59
    anything else on on any collusion yeah I
  • 12:03
    have a couple of funny examples it's not
  • 12:05
    my big collection which I hope they come
  • 12:08
    boats on Sunday but listen to some of
  • 12:10
    this stuff some of these idiots said
  • 12:12
    here's my favorite one she well no first
  • 12:16
    let's play sensenbrenner bitching and
  • 12:18
    moaning about you can't release the
  • 12:20
    report fully because of all the illegal
  • 12:21
    ''tis involved so let's get that out of
  • 12:23
    the way Sensenbrenner is a
  • 12:25
    representative you know he's a senator
  • 12:28
    on the Senate
  • 12:29
    okay I think he's a representative yes
  • 12:33
    what I've got on the Judicial Committee
  • 12:36
    okay I think it is absolutely shocking
  • 12:39
    that the majority of this committee is
  • 12:43
    going to ask the chief law enforcement
  • 12:45
    officer of the United States to commit a
  • 12:48
    crime
  • 12:49
    shocking shocking and the crime would be
  • 12:52
    to release unredacted east sex blahdy
  • 12:55
    blahdy blah yeah so meanwhile Trump just
  • 13:00
    put the kibosh on everything and I said
  • 13:02
    that knowing and just pronouncing it yet
  • 13:05
    another way kibosh on everything and so
  • 13:09
    this got Sheila Jackson are the who
  • 13:12
    would have been our favorite uh
  • 13:15
    representative had not Maxine Waters
  • 13:18
    come onto the scene yes yep up there up
  • 13:21
    the ante but Sheila's running she's
  • 13:24
    going for it was one of the most idiotic
  • 13:26
    comments ever that the president now
  • 13:29
    seeks to take a wrecking ball through
  • 13:31
    the Constitution of the United States of
  • 13:33
    America oh yeah for the first time in
  • 13:36
    the history of the United States a
  • 13:37
    president is now exerting executive
  • 13:40
    privilege over every aspect of life what
  • 13:45
    maybe we should just step back for a
  • 13:47
    second just explain exactly what this is
  • 13:49
    about because it is so idiotic yeah it
  • 13:52
    is literally almost down the
  • 13:54
    technicalities and just to make in this
  • 13:58
    case the Attorney General bar looked
  • 14:00
    like a douchebag a puppet the
  • 14:03
    president's lawyer
  • 14:04
    voilá that you know heap massaged the
  • 14:08
    public by not really and even though he
  • 14:10
    has no had no obligation under the rules
  • 14:12
    to release the report they just want the
  • 14:15
    whole report we voted on a damn it the
  • 14:17
    rules laws be damned we want the report
  • 14:19
    and it's just a big show and it's so
  • 14:22
    tiring to watch because you really get
  • 14:27
    almost nothing coming except if you
  • 14:29
    boneheads clips we get a lot of great
  • 14:32
    clips now and especially when you have
  • 14:35
    executive privilege over all aspects of
  • 14:38
    life yeah yes i have no idea what that
  • 14:42
    means
  • 14:42
    i believe her it doesn't matter it's
  • 14:45
    totally true it's true
  • 14:46
    to what okay that my summary is the
  • 14:49
    following the report comes out as
  • 14:53
    inconclusive
  • 14:54
    it's not even inconclusive it's
  • 14:55
    conclusive that nothing happened and so
  • 14:59
    Bar decides I think bar made a strategic
  • 15:02
    error here Bari decides that he wants to
  • 15:05
    just get the whole thing out of there I
  • 15:07
    get them so they have it redacted
  • 15:08
    professionally to get out certain things
  • 15:10
    that you can't release it's just against
  • 15:12
    the law and there's nothing of any
  • 15:15
    importance that's not been released so
  • 15:18
    they release it so the Democrats because
  • 15:21
    there didn't conclude what they wanted
  • 15:23
    which is that Trump is a as a Russian
  • 15:26
    agent a Russian spy working for Putin
  • 15:30
    Putin Putin Putin Putin so he so they
  • 15:35
    want the whole thing they want to see
  • 15:36
    the whole thing so that hoping that he
  • 15:39
    doesn't release it so they can moan and
  • 15:40
    groan because now they can say oh
  • 15:42
    there's all kinds of secrets in here
  • 15:44
    they're just covering up for Trump but
  • 15:46
    and it's very effective so far it but
  • 15:49
    what bar should have done was released a
  • 15:52
    heavily redacted version yes and then
  • 15:55
    gone back and done another pass in other
  • 15:57
    words diversity said this version should
  • 16:00
    have been held and then he should have
  • 16:02
    just redacted it to an extreme and sent
  • 16:05
    that in so they could bitch and moan
  • 16:07
    about before but the page of all
  • 16:10
    redacted the Republic is always liked to
  • 16:13
    do during the Obama administration
  • 16:14
    look at this it's useless and they'd
  • 16:16
    hold up a page and the entire piece on
  • 16:18
    black top yeah exactly yeah so he should
  • 16:21
    have done that and then said okay okay
  • 16:23
    I'm gonna rewrite we're gonna go over it
  • 16:24
    again and we'll release this one and
  • 16:26
    then release it and you think three
  • 16:28
    maybe through three stages you know you
  • 16:32
    don't think this they would have come up
  • 16:33
    with some other gambit a little bit the
  • 16:37
    idea who's gonna get to 2020 first yes
  • 16:40
    well that's all the president until 2022
  • 16:44
    hope to get him voted out and more
  • 16:47
    Democrats voted in but it's if I think
  • 16:49
    they start playing their cards a little
  • 16:51
    too soon on this yeah I think he's
  • 16:53
    getting annoying yeah there was did what
  • 16:57
    do we have a Nancy Pelosi where she was
  • 16:59
    saying that this is a constitutional
  • 17:03
    crisis yeah no this is what we got from
  • 17:06
    her we have to make sure one channel is
  • 17:09
    what we have from her for some reason
  • 17:11
    political but we have tonight my clip
  • 17:14
    which is Pelosi unbar lying to Congress
  • 17:17
    oh you didn't even hear the clip at all
  • 17:19
    no I didn't hear anything
  • 17:21
    hmm okay Pelosi will play yours lying to
  • 17:24
    bar are like he lied to Congress he lied
  • 17:30
    to congress and everybody else did that
  • 17:33
    and would be considered a crime nobody
  • 17:36
    is above the law not the president of
  • 17:38
    the united states and clobber OU's and
  • 17:40
    not the Attorney General being the
  • 17:42
    Attorney General does not give you a
  • 17:44
    bath to go say whatever you want and it
  • 17:47
    is the fact because you are the Attorney
  • 17:49
    General it just isn't true there's a
  • 17:55
    process involved here and as I said I'll
  • 17:58
    say it again and I may have questions
  • 18:01
    you have the committee will act upon how
  • 18:06
    we will proceed you know this may be a
  • 18:09
    good point to play my little series of
  • 18:11
    Clips here because the woman is clearly
  • 18:15
    disturbed by this by whatever happened
  • 18:20
    and I'm sure she believes exactly what
  • 18:21
    she's saying and she believes that Trump
  • 18:24
    is a agent of Putin and bar is working
  • 18:27
    as the personal lawyer all the things
  • 18:29
    she says I'm sure she believes because
  • 18:30
    this woman along with many many
  • 18:33
    politicians and many Americans are
  • 18:36
    traumatized and I came across a great
  • 18:40
    what I thought was a great interview you
  • 18:43
    know Aaron Matt a I'm sure you do too
  • 18:46
    you know yeah you do he works for
  • 18:49
    democracy now he has the gray zone which
  • 18:52
    is a like a video podcast but he's he's
  • 18:55
    kind of a mainstream guy I'm sure you've
  • 18:58
    seen maybe ma se ma te oxen egg maybe
  • 19:05
    any and this I didn't know his father is
  • 19:11
    Gabor Ma Tei and he is a world-renowned
  • 19:15
    highly published psychologist and he
  • 19:20
    gave for the firt for the first time I
  • 19:23
    think inappropriate and
  • 19:25
    alysus of the trauma that were
  • 19:29
    witnessing amongst politicians with the
  • 19:32
    with the entire Russia collusion story
  • 19:35
    he also analyzed I think for the first
  • 19:38
    time I've heard it correctly the
  • 19:39
    president and his issues and then in the
  • 19:44
    third clip kind of a general overview of
  • 19:46
    why you know you take those two pieces
  • 19:48
    what's happening why is it happening so
  • 19:50
    the guy is a renowned as always this is
  • 19:51
    a psychiatrist psychologist I know he's
  • 19:53
    got credentials and we started off with
  • 19:57
    him talking about this trauma that is
  • 20:01
    the Russia collusion story what's
  • 20:03
    interesting is that in the aftermath of
  • 20:05
    the mother Thunderbolt of no proof of
  • 20:10
    collusion their articles about how
  • 20:12
    people are disappointed about this
  • 20:13
    finding no discipline is that you were
  • 20:16
    expecting something you wanted something
  • 20:17
    to happen and it didn't happen so that
  • 20:20
    means that some people wanted Muller to
  • 20:23
    find evidence of collusion which means
  • 20:26
    that emotionally they were invested in
  • 20:28
    it it wasn't just that they want to know
  • 20:30
    the truth
  • 20:30
    they actually wanted the truth to look a
  • 20:33
    certain way and whenever we want to look
  • 20:35
    to we want the truth to look a certain
  • 20:38
    way there's some reason has to do their
  • 20:40
    own emotional needs and not just with
  • 20:43
    our concern for reality and in politics
  • 20:46
    in general though we think that people
  • 20:48
    make decisions on intellectual grounds
  • 20:50
    based on facts and beliefs very often
  • 20:53
    actually people's dynamics too driven by
  • 20:54
    emotional forces that they're not even
  • 20:58
    aware of in themselves and I believe as
  • 21:00
    I observe this all of us should get
  • 21:01
    phenomena from the beginning we least
  • 21:03
    seemed to me that there was a lot of
  • 21:04
    emotionality in it but had little to do
  • 21:08
    with the actual facts of the case
  • 21:09
    there's no question that for a lot of
  • 21:12
    people in this country the election of
  • 21:13
    Trump was a traumatic event know when a
  • 21:17
    trauma reaction happens images to say
  • 21:20
    you're hurt and you're pained and you're
  • 21:23
    confused and you're scared and you're
  • 21:26
    bewildered
  • 21:27
    there's basically two things you can do
  • 21:28
    about it one is you can own that I'm
  • 21:31
    pained and I'm hurt and bewildered and
  • 21:34
    I'm really scared and then trying to
  • 21:36
    look at what happened to bring me to
  • 21:39
    that situation oh you can instead of
  • 21:44
    dealing with those emotions come up with
  • 21:46
    some kind of explanation that makes you
  • 21:48
    feel better about them so now he's
  • 21:50
    explaining basic trauma by the way the
  • 21:53
    guy is a lefty he hates Trump sure and
  • 21:55
    here is his analysis of Trump he's much
  • 21:58
    more comforting to believe that some
  • 22:00
    some enemies doing this to us then to
  • 22:03
    look at what does it say about us as a
  • 22:05
    society I mean there was a massive
  • 22:07
    denial of the actual dynamics in
  • 22:11
    American society that led to the
  • 22:13
    election of this traumatized and
  • 22:15
    traumatizing individual Donald Trump is
  • 22:17
    a clearest example of a traumatized
  • 22:21
    politician one can ever see he is in
  • 22:23
    denial of reality all the time he is
  • 22:26
    self aggrandizing his fundamental self
  • 22:30
    concept is that of nobody so he has to
  • 22:34
    make some huge and big all the time and
  • 22:36
    keep proving to the world how powerful
  • 22:37
    and smart you know what kind of degree
  • 22:40
    he's bad and how smart he is and it's a
  • 22:43
    compensation for table self-image you
  • 22:46
    can't pay attention to anything which
  • 22:48
    means that his brain is too scattered
  • 22:50
    because it was too painful for him to
  • 22:52
    pay attention what does it all come down
  • 22:54
    to the childhood that we know that he
  • 22:56
    had
  • 22:57
    in and in the home of a dictatorial
  • 23:01
    child disparaging father in a very weak
  • 23:06
    and who demean these children
  • 23:09
    mercilessly one of the terms brothers
  • 23:11
    dragged himself to death
  • 23:12
    mm-hmm and from compensates for all that
  • 23:15
    by trying to makes it was big and
  • 23:17
    powerful and successful as possible and
  • 23:20
    emits a clear from an example I'm not
  • 23:22
    saying this to invite sympathy for
  • 23:24
    Trump's politics I'm just describing
  • 23:26
    that that's what the man is and the fact
  • 23:29
    that such a traumatized individual can
  • 23:31
    be elected to the position of what they
  • 23:34
    call the most powerful person in the
  • 23:35
    world I speaks to a traumatized society
  • 23:39
    and and like individuals can be in
  • 23:42
    denial as society can be now so this
  • 23:44
    society is deeply in denial but its own
  • 23:47
    trauma and particularly in this case
  • 23:49
    about the trauma of that election so one
  • 23:52
    one way to deal with trauma is denial of
  • 23:54
    it the other way is to project onto
  • 23:58
    other people things you don't like about
  • 24:00
    yourself so of course this is not like
  • 24:04
    stunning news but I've not heard anyone
  • 24:07
    on the left of any spectrum analyze it
  • 24:10
    this way to date and to say yeah Trump
  • 24:14
    is highly traumatized and that that is
  • 24:17
    part of the trauma of the nation and I
  • 24:20
    don't know maybe of the world charm
  • 24:24
    [Music]
  • 24:27
    final short clip is the projection part
  • 24:30
    so yes and again nothing groundbreaking
  • 24:33
    but good to hear that at least someone
  • 24:35
    is listening and thinking about it it's
  • 24:37
    only a matter of historical fact the
  • 24:39
    most serious person most year student of
  • 24:41
    history you can possibly deny how the
  • 24:45
    United States is interfered in the
  • 24:47
    internal politics of just what every
  • 24:49
    nation on earth for example and Chile
  • 24:51
    you know but there's an elected
  • 24:53
    and that the America cheerfully
  • 24:55
    overthrows even boasts about it not to
  • 24:57
    mention the current indifference and Ben
  • 24:59
    Azul and internal politics not to
  • 25:01
    mention how as you've pointed out that
  • 25:05
    many others have pointed out and usually
  • 25:06
    boast the bird on its cover about how
  • 25:09
    the United States helped Boyce you also
  • 25:11
    get elected you know you know so even if
  • 25:16
    it's true what the Russians have even if
  • 25:19
    it's the worst thing that's alleged
  • 25:20
    about the Russians is true it's not even
  • 25:23
    one minuscule proportion of what
  • 25:25
    America's public acknowledged it has
  • 25:26
    done all around the world and so this
  • 25:29
    rage that we project them and and this
  • 25:32
    bad guy image the projections of the
  • 25:34
    Russians is simply a mirror a very
  • 25:37
    inadequate mayor of America publicly and
  • 25:40
    openly and the repeated leaders all
  • 25:42
    around the world it's kind of a meta
  • 25:44
    thought about this even as you're all
  • 25:46
    saying oh well thank you of course it's
  • 25:49
    my own my old saying what you say for
  • 25:51
    being yourself but you cope door to
  • 25:52
    health but I had not considered this
  • 25:56
    part of it where we're so I guess maybe
  • 26:00
    we have considered it but we're so aware
  • 26:03
    of what the United States has been doing
  • 26:05
    all my life for sure
  • 26:07
    yeah in meddling in other countries and
  • 26:09
    we've had a pretty interesting war
  • 26:12
    that's still not really over in the
  • 26:15
    Middle East and so then you know we're
  • 26:18
    so upset about that but of course you
  • 26:19
    can't say that because military can't
  • 26:23
    love our troops support the troops can't
  • 26:26
    say that so the trauma comes out in this
  • 26:28
    other way of thinking that this really
  • 26:30
    kind of miniscule country with their
  • 26:33
    power Russia you know that they're the
  • 26:35
    big boogeyman and that is super
  • 26:38
    projection and it's interesting to see
  • 26:41
    the trolls in the troll room a lot of
  • 26:45
    them seem pretty traumatized themselves
  • 26:48
    I'm sure this lizard they're just
  • 26:51
    listening to this clip how they project
  • 26:53
    about this pop these clips should go
  • 26:57
    check yourself trolls yeah I can see
  • 27:02
    that bus
  • 27:04
    pretty obvious more or less that's
  • 27:06
    what's going on yeah but and that's
  • 27:08
    what's so nice about it's just people
  • 27:10
    that are cut that are paid Congress folk
  • 27:12
    that should be you know but you'd hope
  • 27:15
    when I'm listening to this this escobar
  • 27:19
    woman go on and on with some
  • 27:21
    interpretation of the report that's just
  • 27:23
    not there as if it's all true and we
  • 27:27
    have to do something immediately and
  • 27:29
    this bar guy's the worst mm-hmm I'm
  • 27:31
    thinking would what is wrong with them
  • 27:35
    and by the way I think that and this guy
  • 27:38
    didn't get into it part of the real
  • 27:40
    trauma of the United States and I would
  • 27:42
    say part of the troll trauma that I'm
  • 27:44
    seeing he's really 9/11 and because it
  • 27:47
    it was so quickly after 9/11 that the
  • 27:50
    truth movement started people were
  • 27:52
    noticing bullcrap all kinds of I mean
  • 27:54
    it's just yeah uh conspiracy theories
  • 27:56
    now trauma trauma because we all know
  • 27:59
    the true the real story has holes in it
  • 28:02
    at least like man a lot of stuff doesn't
  • 28:05
    make sense you know but we've been
  • 28:07
    suppressed all you can't talk about it
  • 28:09
    Oh conspiracy theorist I think that's
  • 28:13
    part of the overall trees I think that's
  • 28:15
    part of the overall trauma we it's
  • 28:17
    unresolved man yeah we could we killed
  • 28:20
    some guy threw his body in the ocean
  • 28:22
    thanks Obama but you know we were
  • 28:25
    supposed to be in Afghanistan but then
  • 28:27
    we went into Iraq I mean people are well
  • 28:30
    this actually came up in my phone
  • 28:32

  • 29:16
    classes you got Pilates you got zoom but

    can score all day long in zumba class
  • 30:05
    that was just his little side note so
  • 30:10
    you know for all you shut-ins for all
  • 30:13
    you in cells learn how to Zumba so I
  • 30:17
    said hey Stevie have something
  • 30:18
    interesting happened on the show when I
  • 30:22
    said you know without really taking any
  • 30:25
    position per se about Venezuela we were
  • 30:29
    excoriating the the administration for
  • 30:31
    this batch of a job clearly based on or
  • 30:34
    inspired by 80s wagged the dog scenarios
  • 30:38
    from 50 strata 1950 strategies and it's
  • 30:42
    a it's an embarrassment and he and he's
  • 30:45
    like oh yeah and then I go honest ed but
  • 30:47
    here's the interesting thing and I told
  • 30:48
    him about the emails that I got that we
  • 30:51
    actually both received one of them and
  • 30:53
    you know what the content was and how
  • 30:55
    they both pointed were all three of them
  • 30:57
    pointed to pachán ik as the guy with you
  • 31:00
    know with the message that I must tell
  • 31:01
    our viewers and while I'm telling him
  • 31:03
    this he's cracking up he's laughing like
  • 31:06
    a hyena I've never heard him this way he
  • 31:08
    says the same stupid people who did this
  • 31:11
    damn coup so thanks you've answered that
  • 31:14
    question and
  • 31:16
    so he says Oh Adam it's unbelievable
  • 31:19
    they have they have messed this thing up
  • 31:21
    so bad and he says I don't understand
  • 31:24
    Elliott Abrams he says he must have
  • 31:27
    taken a backseat to this and handed over
  • 31:30
    the reins to Bolton because he says
  • 31:32
    Elliott Abrams that he did the coup in
  • 31:35
    Chile he's been involved in other ones
  • 31:37
    of course iran-contra and he knows as he
  • 31:41
    says he knows Elliott Abrams quite well
  • 31:44
    and he keeps telling me that he almost
  • 31:46
    killed Elliott Abrams because he had
  • 31:48
    killed a couple of his informants who
  • 31:50
    were none right he made sure talk about
  • 31:53
    this yeah yeah exactly
  • 31:55
    so he says clearly you know this was
  • 31:59
    Bolton running the show he's an idiot
  • 32:01
    and you know the CIA does all the the
  • 32:04
    on-the-ground
  • 32:06
    execution of this they says they messed
  • 32:08
    it up because the way it's supposed to
  • 32:10
    work is really really fast and let's
  • 32:15
    just say if you were to do this with
  • 32:18
    Noriega I'm not saying Steve pochutec
  • 32:20
    did this but let's just say it was
  • 32:22
    Noriega that you were trying to to
  • 32:25
    overthrow and what happens is the
  • 32:28
    negotiator eventually goes into the
  • 32:31
    Noriega compound and sits down and says
  • 32:33
    hey you know I'm here to take you out
  • 32:35
    and yeah I know because the military's
  • 32:36
    flipped and it's time and this is all
  • 32:38
    very civil apparently and I've got three
  • 32:42
    planes one for you one for your wise one
  • 32:45
    for your staff I've got the house is
  • 32:46
    ready anywhere you want to go you want
  • 32:48
    to go to Argentina any place you would
  • 32:50
    want to be we'll send you there here's a
  • 32:52
    big pallet of cash and they go and that
  • 32:55
    is how the system works and they failed
  • 32:59
    they failed they never got the he says
  • 33:01
    the Guido guy is is is really the
  • 33:04
    problem he doesn't have the charisma you
  • 33:07
    know I think he's saying you know stupid
  • 33:08
    fake Obama looking guy he has nothing
  • 33:10
    going for him but he was very clear he
  • 33:13
    said we'll refine will return this is
  • 33:17
    all the military will fold even if it
  • 33:20
    means they have to you know get the
  • 33:24
    three planes and one for the mistresses
  • 33:27
    and wives etc for the military command
  • 33:29
    avenge
  • 33:30
    either get around to it he says but this
  • 33:32
    is just so incredibly stupid and it bogs
  • 33:35
    everything down and when I asked him
  • 33:38
    really what is this all about he says
  • 33:43
    this really only one thing the Russians
  • 33:45
    aren't that important he says it's
  • 33:47
    really it's kind of minimal it's about
  • 33:49
    China and we don't need the oil you know
  • 33:53
    we've lived without it for a while we
  • 33:55
    had a great system going on where we
  • 33:57
    we'd take Venezuela's crude we refine it
  • 34:01
    bring it back to them then you know then
  • 34:03
    sell it back to them and they go off and
  • 34:04
    sell it and fill up all their Citgo
  • 34:06
    filling stations says China is the
  • 34:08
    problem China we do not want China
  • 34:11
    getting any access to any oil whatsoever
  • 34:14
    cuz that's what it's about nothing else
  • 34:18
    which is not like we didn't know it and
  • 34:21
    so then I threw another thing at him
  • 34:23
    because I've been tracking something
  • 34:25
    which I hadn't introduced to the show
  • 34:26
    yet there's one of our producers he said
  • 34:30
    there's something really odd go well not
  • 34:32
    just odd there's some bad stuff going on
  • 34:34
    once again between Serbia and Kosovo and
  • 34:37
    I remember this whole region is
  • 34:39
    especially with Bosnia Herzegovina it
  • 34:42
    was a big mess in the 90s was it 90s
  • 34:46
    well it's Clinton zero yeah Clinton's
  • 34:49
    era the 90s and we wound up Cruz missing
  • 34:52
    a couple of people and still a huge mess
  • 34:55
    they accidentally by some weird accent
  • 34:57
    says these things are so accurate
  • 34:58
    blowing up a Chinese embassy just funny
  • 35:03
    how that happens so the reports are now
  • 35:07
    coming in that there's once again all
  • 35:09
    kinds of strife between Serbia and
  • 35:11
    Kosovo Albania is playing a part in this
  • 35:15
    and the producer who sent me all this
  • 35:17
    information said I think they're trying
  • 35:18
    to do something because what is
  • 35:21
    happening in Serbia China has named this
  • 35:25
    its new gateway for rail to Europe they
  • 35:28
    have already built a high-speed rail
  • 35:31
    between Belgrade and what's uh what's
  • 35:37
    the country over there doesn't matter
  • 35:40
    they've already put in high-speed rail
  • 35:41
    infrastructure
  • 35:43
    they you know they're talking to real
  • 35:45
    big game they're putting all this money
  • 35:47
    in and I said you know Steve if if our
  • 35:51
    game is to stop China then this could be
  • 35:54
    the next theater of some bullcrap which
  • 35:57
    would be really bad to have a repeat of
  • 35:59
    the 90s he said said did you say Serbia
  • 36:01
    said yeah says oh he says this is what
  • 36:05
    we call a mousetrap city mousetrap
  • 36:08
    yeah we're Mouse trapping the Chinese he
  • 36:11
    says the Serbians
  • 36:12
    are the most ruthless most bloodthirsty
  • 36:16
    people in the world and they will quote
  • 36:20
    fuck up the Chinese he says the Serbian
  • 36:24
    mafia and he said by the way they're
  • 36:26
    mostly all Russians but he's the worst
  • 36:28
    worst just killers absolute killers and
  • 36:32
    says if if it's Serbia cuz I'm happy I'm
  • 36:35
    happy about that and who sponsors Serbia
  • 36:39
    with weapons is Israel then mainly
  • 36:43
    because the the Jews did not from
  • 36:46
    quoting here the Jews did not forget how
  • 36:48
    Serbia saved the Jews and in the Second
  • 36:50
    World War and so there's there's giving
  • 36:53
    weapons and making sure there have
  • 36:55
    things all set up and tight for any
  • 36:56
    operations they need to do so China
  • 36:59
    could run into a very nasty problem in
  • 37:01
    Serbia and I've heard this - I've heard
  • 37:03
    never never take investment from Serbs
  • 37:05
    because they want it back so you know
  • 37:10
    well that's not the way the games played
  • 37:14
    so it seems like well everyone is still
  • 37:17
    talking a big Russia game the real worry
  • 37:20
    is indeed China which as we know from
  • 37:23
    Joe Biden is not a big deal those guys
  • 37:25
    are ok over there they're just trying
  • 37:28
    gotta good guys and that's my report I
  • 37:32
    think that's a good report yeah that's
  • 37:34
    the report from the handler I would give
  • 37:36
    you an A for that report
  • 37:39
    okay well that keeps us up to speed on
  • 37:41
    what's going on yes now in other areas
  • 37:44
    of events there's some local stuff
  • 37:49
    there's the illegal surveillance clip
  • 37:51
    democracy now is kind of interesting
  • 37:54
    oh yeah so I'm watching these these
  • 37:56
    hearings and there was one little thing
  • 37:58
    that I think people should need because
  • 37:59
    if you are I'm not recommending anybody
  • 38:02
    do this which is turn on c-span and
  • 38:04
    listen to these idiots but there is this
  • 38:10
    thing they do is call I move to strike
  • 38:11
    the last word
  • 38:12
    we've talked about this yeah but I got a
  • 38:15
    good clip from c-span that explains it
  • 38:18
    quite nicely the gentleman from
  • 38:19
    Massachusetts rise I move to strike the
  • 38:21
    last word and gentleman is recognized
  • 38:22
    for five minutes
  • 38:23
    for purpose the gentleman from
  • 38:25
    Pennsylvania rise to strike the last
  • 38:27
    word gentleman is recognized for five
  • 38:28
    minutes
  • 38:29
    what does it mean when a member of the
  • 38:31
    house says I move to strike the last
  • 38:33
    word is a question from a viewer in
  • 38:35
    California the house most often amends
  • 38:37
    bills under the five-minute rule that
  • 38:40
    means five minutes is allotted to each
  • 38:41
    side of an amendment the mover and an
  • 38:44
    opponent other members may get five
  • 38:46
    minutes of their own if they offer an
  • 38:48
    amendment which is just what they do
  • 38:49
    when they move to strike the last word
  • 38:51
    by house precedent these amendments are
  • 38:53
    considered to be automatically withdrawn
  • 38:55
    after five minutes members recognize
  • 38:57
    they are used to lengthen debate and no
  • 38:59
    votes are ever taken on them what person
  • 39:02
    gentleman from Minnesota rise
  • 39:03
    Mr Speaker I rise to strike the last
  • 39:04
    word gentleman's recognized for five
  • 39:06
    minutes
  • 39:07
    they also did something else which was a
  • 39:08
    real TV move is that they went through
  • 39:12
    the roll call again and everyone's like
  • 39:16
    hey what was my vote recorded as hey did
  • 39:19
    you get my vote just like if some weird
  • 39:22
    time stretch it's you know it's pathetic
  • 39:26
    well I did catch an eye so from the
  • 39:32
    Nadler committee that I just thought was
  • 39:35
    good oh it's all the way at the top
  • 39:39
    those in favor respond by saying aye all
  • 39:41
    right
  • 39:42
    opposed no those in favor respond by
  • 39:52
    saying aye all right opposed no no
  • 39:55
    [Laughter]
  • 39:57
    that's good in the show and the reason
  • 40:00
    it sounds like it does is because you
  • 40:03
    couldn't hear anybody someone was near
  • 40:05
    so it says and now there was as I and
  • 40:08
    the two guys right
  • 40:09
    next to it who are both Republicans
  • 40:12
    decided to bring it up a notch
  • 40:14
    I still have it that's funny so I'm
  • 40:21
    listening talking about which sister in
  • 40:23
    the process they do have a little sub
  • 40:24
    clip be nice to ask next time you do
  • 40:30
    your monthly with the Puccini uh ask him
  • 40:33
    about Moldova there's there's this very
  • 40:36
    I will give credits a video podcast so
  • 40:38
    it's not really to me a true podcast but
  • 40:40
    this guy does this thing and people
  • 40:42
    could look it up on YouTube it's called
  • 40:43
    bald and bankrupt and they get this is a
  • 40:46
    bald guy who's going around the country
  • 40:48
    around various countries and he's just
  • 40:50
    roaming around I mean there's one where
  • 40:52
    he's in I think it's not George or
  • 40:55
    Ukraine it's some really far-out middle
  • 40:57
    of nowhere place and and the and he runs
  • 41:00
    walks into this village and the women
  • 41:02
    asked him she said where'd you go would
  • 41:04
    you come from and he talks to me to be
  • 41:06
    decent Russian it's a Russian area and
  • 41:08
    she's home I guy I'm super surprised
  • 41:11
    you're alive you walked through that
  • 41:12
    forest nobody goes in there is filled
  • 41:14
    with wolves no and so this is the kind
  • 41:17
    of thing this guy's he's always
  • 41:18
    wandering around so he's in Moldova and
  • 41:20
    he has got his idea was why am why would
  • 41:24
    anybody go to Moldova for a vacation at
  • 41:26
    the capital and he just shows what a
  • 41:28
    hellhole it is it's a real he has Trump
  • 41:31
    would have it a shithole place you can
  • 41:33
    always tell I'm sorry but wait wait but
  • 41:35
    anyway so I got he has a lot of things
  • 41:38
    say but I got I think the crux of it is
  • 41:41
    this clip you can always tell when
  • 41:43
    you're in a poor country when you have
  • 41:44
    signs saying we will buy hair if you got
  • 41:50
    to sell your hair to pay the bills then
  • 41:52
    you know you're in a bit of trouble
  • 41:54
    unfortunately I can't sell my hair
  • 41:56
    unless they weren't bit graybeard what a
  • 41:59
    place you've got any hair to sell you
  • 42:01
    wanna make some money come to mould over
  • 42:03
    you can sell your hair did you see the
  • 42:07
    hair email we got from the lawyer what
  • 42:11
    we got an email about natural hair we
  • 42:13
    were talking about the natural hair yeah
  • 42:16
    with Miss USA and her natural hair and
  • 42:19
    and
  • 42:20
    this I guess you missed it I think you
  • 42:22
    were on the note the anonymous as you
  • 42:26
    noted the winner of this year's Miss USA
  • 42:28
    contest a lawyer vigorously pointed out
  • 42:31
    how she wore her hair in a natural way
  • 42:34
    she may have tapped into the natural
  • 42:36
    hair movements own history of which are
  • 42:38
    mostly ignorant but I'll submit to you
  • 42:40
    that the winner made her remarks because
  • 42:41
    of another independent strain of thought
  • 42:43
    the legal professions push for diversity
  • 42:46
    and inclusion and it goes through quite
  • 42:51
    a detailed account of his law firm and
  • 42:56
    he said is important highlights here is
  • 42:59
    almost any practicing attorney you can
  • 43:01
    tell you race gender class religion and
  • 43:03
    other immutable characteristics are a
  • 43:04
    part of many many professional
  • 43:06
    conversations attorneys are regularly
  • 43:09
    reminded of their unconscious biases
  • 43:11
    ways to eliminate those biases and the
  • 43:13
    need to hire attorneys of color to
  • 43:16
    satisfy institutional clients demands
  • 43:18
    also how courts treat criminal
  • 43:20
    defendants differently based upon their
  • 43:22
    melanin content similarly it's common to
  • 43:25
    hear attorneys and this hurt me when I
  • 43:27
    heard this similarly it is common to
  • 43:29
    hear attorneys complain openly and in
  • 43:31
    formal settings about white men the
  • 43:35
    positions they occupy and the power that
  • 43:37
    they wield to the supposed detriment of
  • 43:39
    all who are not like them it's kind of
  • 43:42
    frightening when lawyers are doing that
  • 43:44
    oh yeah
  • 43:47
    and so well everyone's doing it so it's
  • 43:50
    not just the lawyers right well anyway
  • 43:52
    going through you know his experiences
  • 43:56
    and how they have offsites where all
  • 43:58
    they talk about you know it's a
  • 43:59
    diversity off site but really only
  • 44:00
    people who are deemed diverse such as
  • 44:02
    him because he says I check all the
  • 44:04
    boxes I'm brown and you know half Polish
  • 44:07
    and so he gets invited to all these he
  • 44:11
    says and he talks about how you know the
  • 44:13
    I mention all this because an
  • 44:15
    undercurrent among those who invest
  • 44:17
    instigate these conversations and
  • 44:18
    coordinate such events is the belief
  • 44:20
    that individuals have a right to their
  • 44:22
    own story appearance sense of self even
  • 44:26
    in a professional and traditionally
  • 44:28
    conservative lowercase C environment
  • 44:30
    perhaps that's part and parcel of
  • 44:33
    fighting against some very
  • 44:34
    historical inequities in our legal
  • 44:36
    system at any rate its encapsulated
  • 44:37
    quite well in the job candidate I
  • 44:40
    interviewed a woman who arrived with a
  • 44:42
    nose ring and an unshaven mustache she
  • 44:45
    got the job the US Miss USA winners
  • 44:48
    perhaps the best embodiment of where the
  • 44:50
    trend might lead which was exactly what
  • 44:52
    you talked about yeah about the idea
  • 44:55
    that you have to you have to hire people
  • 44:57
    with anything any way they look which
  • 44:59
    I'm not against but it's it's an
  • 45:01
    interesting observation certainly how
  • 45:02
    they're going about it well I'm totally
  • 45:04
    against it you're against what hiring
  • 45:09
    people for certain positions and
  • 45:11
    ignoring the way they look I just don't
  • 45:15
    think it's acceptable to hire somebody
  • 45:17
    with a mustache which draws attention
  • 45:21
    away from whatever it is you're doing as
  • 45:23
    a business
  • 45:24
    I mean drawing attention to yourself in
  • 45:26
    certain situations is not it's not what
  • 45:30
    is needed or wanted by an employer and
  • 45:34
    to force it on an employer I think is
  • 45:37
    unfair to the employer it hurts their
  • 45:39
    business for example if I have two
  • 45:41
    companies and there's one woman with a
  • 45:43
    mustache because she's loaded on
  • 45:45
    testosterone for example to to minimize
  • 45:48
    lesbian bed death that we talked about
  • 45:51
    some years ago mm-hmm
  • 45:52
    she's all pumped up with with
  • 45:54
    testosterone is you got a big mustache I
  • 45:56
    ran into a mustache
  • 45:57
    bagger at the Whole Foods the other day
  • 46:00
    you're shopping with the elites again
  • 46:02
    huh oh yeah she's there with a mustache
  • 46:05
    no big deal and they're whole foods that
  • 46:07
    we expect kind of the seed that the
  • 46:09
    oddities but in another situation you
  • 46:11
    have two companies and you have two
  • 46:12
    women ones with the mustache one doesn't
  • 46:14
    have a mustache and she's attractive and
  • 46:16
    there's two companies doing the exact
  • 46:17
    same business and you were forced to
  • 46:19
    hire the one with a mustache to do
  • 46:21
    something that maybe front facing in
  • 46:22
    other words customers see her you're you
  • 46:25
    put yourself at a disadvantage to the
  • 46:27
    other person because everybody knows
  • 46:28
    that if you're gonna buy from one you
  • 46:30
    have two choices I'm gonna probably buy
  • 46:33
    from the woman with the this is more
  • 46:36
    attractive than the one that's maybe
  • 46:37
    off-putting because she's passed away
  • 46:39
    has to wear this mustache this is a
  • 46:41
    political statement I so I'm totally
  • 46:44
    against it I think employers should do
  • 46:45
    whatever they want to do in terms of
  • 46:46
    hiring
  • 46:49
    yeah dream on that's not how that's not
  • 46:52
    the trend the trend is moving away from
  • 46:55
    tell me what my opinion is because you
  • 46:57
    said you're fine with it I'm not that's
  • 47:01
    interesting I don't think I said you're
  • 47:02
    fine with it I said you're not fine with
  • 47:04
    it no no you said you are fine with it
  • 47:07
    Oh me yeah I don't care yeah you don't
  • 47:10
    care but didn't know you put it oh yeah
  • 47:14
    I don't I guess I don't I just don't
  • 47:16
    care I'm a CEO I live in Austin so maybe
  • 47:19
    I'm just immune I just see this stuff
  • 47:22
    everywhere
  • 47:27
    well I see it Billy Mitch I can't
  • 47:29
    believe you see it more than I do man
  • 47:32
    Austin please actually I had a meeting
  • 47:34
    yesterday with the DJ for our for our
  • 47:36
    wedding yeah who will be the only black
  • 47:40
    guy at the wedding as far as I know he's
  • 47:42
    probably one of the few black guys in
  • 47:44
    Austin but he's from he's from the UK
  • 47:46
    from the UK yeah he's got dreadlocks
  • 47:53
    he's he's been here six years and I just
  • 47:56
    wanted to meet him I'd only converse
  • 47:58
    with him over the phone and email then
  • 48:00
    we're just chatting away and he and you
  • 48:02
    know I said well what's it like to be
  • 48:03
    the only black man in Austin Texas and
  • 48:06
    he says you know I gotta tell you you
  • 48:08
    and I John we've discussed how racist
  • 48:10
    they are in the UK but he made an
  • 48:12
    interesting observation he said for all
  • 48:14
    the bullshit that's talked about America
  • 48:16
    the opportunities here for anybody of
  • 48:18
    color certainly black these are so
  • 48:21
    incredible he says whereas in the UK
  • 48:24
    when everyone was invited in from
  • 48:26
    Jamaica which is his roots and you're
  • 48:29
    all of the all of the colonies and you
  • 48:31
    know this is back in that was that the
  • 48:33
    he Edward Heath days so is this the 50s
  • 48:35
    60s like everyone we screwed over in the
  • 48:39
    colonies come and live here but they
  • 48:41
    they kept these people in low-paying
  • 48:43
    low-wage jobs never really had a
  • 48:46
    conversation a public discourse or
  • 48:49
    conversation about the differences in
  • 48:51
    race and just race in general he says in
  • 48:54
    America you know once there was
  • 48:57
    desegregation you got things like
  • 48:59
    historically black colleges and
  • 49:01
    universities you got the n-double a-c-p
  • 49:03
    for good or bad says you have all these
  • 49:06
    different things and you have you have
  • 49:08
    an upper class super wealthy black you
  • 49:10
    have a big black middle class and of
  • 49:12
    course lower lower class but he found in
  • 49:15
    his comparison and the United States is
  • 49:17
    far less or I would say that he said far
  • 49:20
    less racist but he said the opportunity
  • 49:22
    is almost an equal footing and he was
  • 49:26
    very pleased with he says he still has
  • 49:30
    to be careful driving while black ma'am
  • 49:33
    but I was I was surprised in a way
  • 49:37
    delighted to hear what he had to say
  • 49:38
    about that
  • 49:40
    sounds right yeah that doesn't sound
  • 49:44
    right if you look at the media we're
  • 49:45
    just a bunch of racist bad Rick's pricks
  • 49:49
    we are yeah especially you and me old
  • 49:53
    white men old white men are the worst
  • 49:56
    yeah this is true it's true anyway so
  • 50:02
    that was that mustachioed yeah the
  • 50:06
    mustachioed the problem is the
  • 50:08
    testosterone starts to affect your voice
  • 50:09
    we're going back to that try to move on
  • 50:13
    from this go to the by-election that
  • 50:18
    just happened in Canada oh okay a
  • 50:20
    by-election is I'm sorry you're right
  • 50:23
    you're quick on the draw today well
  • 50:24
    you're leaving you're leaving gaps in
  • 50:26
    your speech which is typically a cue for
  • 50:28
    me so look at yourself
  • 50:30
    well yeah well I I felt like saying I'm
  • 50:33
    gonna probably setting all these clips
  • 50:35
    up because they're vague I just wanted
  • 50:38
    to say a by-election is the same as a
  • 50:40
    special election it's one of these
  • 50:41
    off-the-wall elections that we have in
  • 50:42
    the United States out of the blue
  • 50:44
    because somebody quit or something like
  • 50:45
    that so this was historical you we begin
  • 50:50
    with an election that not only made
  • 50:52
    history in this country it could be a
  • 50:54
    litmus test for how Canadians are
  • 50:55
    feeling about the big three political
  • 50:57
    parties right now
  • 50:58
    they all went down to defeat in a
  • 51:00
    by-election last night on Vancouver
  • 51:02
    Island losing to the Green Party
  • 51:04
    candidate Paul Manley in Nanaimo
  • 51:06
    Ladysmith he becomes the second elected
  • 51:09
    Green Party member of parliament in
  • 51:10
    Canadian history he will join Park Green
  • 51:13
    Party leader Elizabeth May
  • 51:15
    on the campaign trail ahead of the
  • 51:17
    federal election in the fall today Prime
  • 51:19
    Minister Justin Trudeau gave his
  • 51:21
    assessment of the results things we've
  • 51:24
    seen from from this this by-election and
  • 51:27
    I want to congratulate all the
  • 51:28
    candidates who ran in it is that
  • 51:30
    Canadians are really preoccupied about
  • 51:32
    climate change preoccupied yeah going to
  • 51:40
    him now they have to to whole to Green
  • 51:45
    Party members of the Parliament to and
  • 51:48
    so this is historic because this guy was
  • 51:50
    the second one
  • 51:51
    he's from
  • 51:53
    the part of the Vancouver Island and
  • 51:55
    North Victoria and so they tried to make
  • 52:00
    it look as though and this is the thing
  • 52:02
    that would got me about this clip was
  • 52:03
    that there's been reports now and you
  • 52:06
    starting to see and I've mentioned in
  • 52:07
    the newsletter a little bit that the
  • 52:10
    Democrats have been doing a lot of
  • 52:12
    polling of Democrats and currently I
  • 52:16
    don't have a clip of this but it's not
  • 52:18
    hard to document the number one issue
  • 52:21
    amongst the Democrats is now climate
  • 52:25
    change and it took over from the new old
  • 52:27
    number one which is health care was
  • 52:28
    number one bear was concerned by weight
  • 52:30
    and so their polling just Democrats I
  • 52:34
    believe so yeah and and climate change
  • 52:37
    is number one I have a hard time
  • 52:39
    believing this why would you do that
  • 52:41
    what would you have a hard time
  • 52:43
    believing Lizabeth Warren just did a
  • 52:45
    flip no she's all in on excitement no no
  • 52:48
    hold on I'm not saying the politicians
  • 52:50
    aren't seeing that is the strategy
  • 52:51
    because it's easy to promise all kinds
  • 52:53
    of stuff and you not you'll never be
  • 52:55
    around to see if it was true or not
  • 52:56
    that's what politicians do that's a
  • 52:58
    great idea
  • 52:59
    I've seen poll after poll after poll
  • 53:01
    that shows climate change at the bottom
  • 53:03
    economy jobs you know education this
  • 53:06
    stuff is always at the top how can this
  • 53:08
    all of a sudden be the number one issue
  • 53:10
    and this is a much Democrats
  • 53:13
    I believe it's Democrats only I think
  • 53:15
    with the polls you're looking at is the
  • 53:17
    public polls with a whole lecture and
  • 53:20
    yes yes I think I climate change is
  • 53:23
    number eight or something you know
  • 53:25
    normal that you'd think especially here
  • 53:27
    where we're freezing to death yeah where
  • 53:32
    should be boiling hot right now no
  • 53:36
    apparently it could be bullcrap I mean
  • 53:38
    I'm not saying that doesn't somebody
  • 53:40
    didn't get in there and and put their
  • 53:42
    thumb on the scale mm-hmm
  • 53:44
    and push this to the top because they're
  • 53:46
    all in on it but no and now everybody's
  • 53:48
    talking more and more people around the
  • 53:50
    green new deal and climate change
  • 53:53
    climate change climate change and more
  • 53:55
    every candidate now that's on my list on
  • 53:58
    the contenders list that I published on
  • 54:00
    the cosmic weed yes your cosmic weenie
  • 54:02
    report card yes is all in on climate
  • 54:05
    change and
  • 54:06
    Budaj edges more so now I obeyed
  • 54:10
    O'Rourke who is trying to make hay with
  • 54:12
    he's got a five five trillion dollar
  • 54:14
    plan peach and peach and peach he's gone
  • 54:19
    you know he's really pushing these moves
  • 54:21
    at climate change at the top of his
  • 54:22
    discussions these people are I think
  • 54:25
    clinically insane this is this this
  • 54:27
    could be a concerted or coordinated
  • 54:30
    effort Scientific American published an
  • 54:33
    interesting article about children
  • 54:36
    changing their parents minds about
  • 54:38
    climate change and they've done all
  • 54:41
    kinds of the tasks yeah but here's the
  • 54:44
    best part it turns out because of course
  • 54:46
    they did this amongst Republicans and
  • 54:47
    Democrats and that named as such in
  • 54:50
    their study not conservatives or
  • 54:52
    progressives just Democrats Republicans
  • 54:55
    and the flip from Republicans according
  • 54:59
    to their research is dramatic though the
  • 55:02
    minute kids go oh I'm afraid of dying if
  • 55:04
    climate change boom they're all in on
  • 55:06
    climate change according to Scientific
  • 55:08
    America I'm not buying it one thing that
  • 55:12
    one of the problems you would kids who
  • 55:14
    get into this you have some I believe
  • 55:18
    and I might probably will offend more
  • 55:20
    than a few people I believe they're
  • 55:22
    they're not being raised with any
  • 55:25
    parental guidance I mean if you had the
  • 55:27
    kids that you could like to have clips
  • 55:28
    of crying and moaning and groaning
  • 55:30
    they're gonna die any minute so because
  • 55:32
    of these these onerous teachers who are
  • 55:34
    you know promoting with the kids these
  • 55:38
    ideas to kind of ruin the kids and the
  • 55:40
    parents do nothing about it
  • 55:42
    we've had situated a couple of kids that
  • 55:46
    came home from school with some crazy
  • 55:49
    report and we immediately pulled him out
  • 55:52
    of school there's a classic for you dr.
  • 56:02
    Kiki yeah so this is becoming and the
  • 56:07
    Canadians of course are all in on this
  • 56:09
    even though it looks as though the
  • 56:10
    Canadian public is like yeah okay
  • 56:14
    whatever until they get taxed yes then
  • 56:17
    all of a sudden it's not so fun anymore
  • 56:18
    is it
  • 56:19
    yeah same to the French same for the
  • 56:21
    fringe lips it's a cold lip service and
  • 56:23
    the politicians don't seem to understand
  • 56:25
    it so the from Europe came two
  • 56:30
    interesting pieces of news one is and
  • 56:32
    the way this was reported was great the
  • 56:35
    UK reported that in the past year 0.0%
  • 56:42
    coal was used in generating the United
  • 56:45
    Kingdom's electricity 0.0 of course were
  • 56:52
    they true what the es what they didn't
  • 56:55
    mention is that 56.9% who was produced
  • 56:59
    by gas no wind 5.3 solar 5.3 so yes this
  • 57:08
    is exactly the way it's going British
  • 57:10
    Petroleum is all in on helping you with
  • 57:13
    your windmill dreams because they get to
  • 57:15
    build more gas-fired plants because the
  • 57:18
    windmills don't produce or solar panels
  • 57:21
    the same amount of energy all the time
  • 57:24
    but then in Germany and usually their
  • 57:29
    Spiegel is quoted a lot in the US press
  • 57:32
    people so they're Spiegel reported this
  • 57:34
    have you seen the new cover of their
  • 57:37
    Spiegel no so it's it's a beautiful
  • 57:40
    illustration of windmills and
  • 57:42
    electricity grid towers tip the
  • 57:45
    windmills the their their blades are
  • 57:49
    broken they're wrapped around you know
  • 57:51
    the the the the high power lines are all
  • 57:54
    snapped and everything's crumbling and
  • 57:56
    it's about the energy venda and there's
  • 58:01
    a translation of it that they put on
  • 58:02
    line the headline a botched job in
  • 58:06
    germany the conversion of the german
  • 58:10
    energy system lacks power plants grids
  • 58:12
    and storage the state has wasted
  • 58:14
    billions and it goes into great detail
  • 58:16
    over of how ever since Fukushima when
  • 58:20
    Germany said off that's it nuclear power
  • 58:22
    got to get rid of that energy Venda
  • 58:24
    we're transitioning to the new world the
  • 58:26
    new
  • 58:27
    of renewables 160 billion euros later it
  • 58:31
    doesn't work everything's become that
  • 58:35
    much more cost-effective and surprising
  • 58:37
    to me the article details that they
  • 58:39
    never they don't have a Department of
  • 58:41
    Energy in Germany there is no one single
  • 58:46
    department or even person who is
  • 58:48
    responsible for the energy policy and
  • 58:51
    everyone just kind of went like it's a
  • 58:52
    great idea we're gonna do we're gonna
  • 58:53
    close everything all right everybody
  • 58:54
    know what to do go do it and it's failed
  • 58:57
    and they're now admitting it huh so to
  • 59:03
    have this huge admission front page
  • 59:05
    they're Spiegel and the articles as I
  • 59:07
    said is detailed and it's just ignored
  • 59:09
    ignored
  • 59:15
    uh was reminds me a lot of the I mean
  • 59:18
    people talk a big you know they talk
  • 59:20
    about all this stuff and decide then
  • 59:22
    mounted people with any scientific
  • 59:24
    background what sort of they're all
  • 59:25
    sociologists or they or their you know
  • 59:29
    community organizers or their something
  • 59:33
    along the lines of no nothing yeah
  • 59:36
    very few of them come from the science
  • 59:38
    community and the ones who do are either
  • 59:39
    all in on climate change but which by
  • 59:43
    the way as I mentioned and I don't have
  • 59:44
    a clip of this either but I told people
  • 59:47
    to keep a lookout because there's a
  • 59:48
    recent study that just came out
  • 59:50
    indicates that as you know we followed
  • 59:53
    this when it was first global warming
  • 59:55
    that it became climate change and then
  • 59:57
    they said well you know global warming
  • 59:59
    was more is better because it makes
  • 1:00:01
    people more it talked that was that was
  • 1:00:03
    a Newt Gingrich by the way and we hope
  • 1:00:06
    like climate change it was so climate
  • 1:00:09
    change global warming the new one is
  • 1:00:11
    they've all decided that that you have
  • 1:00:13
    to talk about and this look I know what
  • 1:00:15
    it is I know what it is of course you do
  • 1:00:17
    yeah but climate crisis climate crisis
  • 1:00:21
    is number one yep
  • 1:00:23
    because climate crisis apparently gets
  • 1:00:26
    people's attention yeah it works better
  • 1:00:28
    no by the way climate crisis is the same
  • 1:00:31
    as global warming and climate change
  • 1:00:32
    it's all the same part of a you have to
  • 1:00:35
    do it the fact is if you have to create
  • 1:00:38
    buzzwords in terms people interested in
  • 1:00:42
    the top well you're all gonna die
  • 1:00:46
    I thought acid rain was good I love that
  • 1:00:49
    one I thought that was a very very
  • 1:00:50
    astute name that sounded really bad acid
  • 1:00:53
    rain yeah yeah of course crisis is great
  • 1:00:57
    because you can always create a crisis
  • 1:00:59
    around some topic that's why I think
  • 1:01:01
    acid rain crisis if they'd kept that one
  • 1:01:03
    go about what happens I will deployed on
  • 1:01:05
    it for some reason
  • 1:01:06
    acid rain crisis would have been a good
  • 1:01:09
    one as you couldn't you know it it
  • 1:01:11
    wasn't working out it wasn't that much
  • 1:01:14
    acid rain and it was if you remember
  • 1:01:16
    acid rain which was another one of these
  • 1:01:18
    things that scare the public was gonna
  • 1:01:20
    melt everything yeah we were literally
  • 1:01:23
    going to melt away from the acid yeah
  • 1:01:26
    and then we had the hole in the ozone
  • 1:01:27
    layer
  • 1:01:28
    and just having a hole in anything is
  • 1:01:30
    good you know it's like hey if you say
  • 1:01:33
    you got a hole in your pants a hole in
  • 1:01:34
    your boat people respond to these words
  • 1:01:37
    climate change was you know did what it
  • 1:01:40
    was supposed to do it did make people
  • 1:01:41
    less interested global warming wasn't
  • 1:01:43
    really good enough so that climate
  • 1:01:48
    crisis and then you promote this idea of
  • 1:01:50
    spent 12 years we were through even
  • 1:01:53
    though like it they mentioned in the
  • 1:01:56
    last year we had the clip with Hanson
  • 1:01:57
    talking about 1988 he claimed that the
  • 1:01:59
    West Side Highway in New York would be
  • 1:02:01
    under water I know it's nothing going on
  • 1:02:05
    this is unbelievable yeah with that I'd
  • 1:02:09
    like to thank you for your courage and
  • 1:02:11
    say in the morning to the man who put
  • 1:02:12
    the C's in both words of climate crisis
  • 1:02:16

  • 1:02:50
    episode 1135 now this was titled miss
  • 1:02:53
    lawyer USA
  • 1:02:55
    Martin JJ came back and he I mean there
  • 1:02:57
    were a number of pieces of very good art
  • 1:03:00
    but I think the the pig eating the ham
  • 1:03:03
    sandwich was just the most disturbing
  • 1:03:05
    thing I've seen in a while and I really
  • 1:03:07
    enjoy we both went there's no doubt this
  • 1:03:10
    is just good it's too good and I think I
  • 1:03:13
    think it works I think people you know
  • 1:03:15
    know what's really nice is when people
  • 1:03:17
    start tweeting it or putting another or
  • 1:03:19
