    yeah but to get a dime back is no agenda
  • 0:14
    [Music]
  • 0:23
    where I heard 12 2019 that maybe it's
  • 0:28
    just me
  • 0:29
    I'm just 12 2019 what so it sounds like
  • 0:37
    you said where did I say May 12 2025 8
  • 0:43
    12 2019 I didn't say Sunday here's a
  • 0:47
    problem I can't even hear myself today
  • 0:50
    what huh yeah I've got so many uh so
  • 0:54
    many complaints about the feedback from
  • 0:58
    my headphones to the microphone which is
  • 1:00
    because I can't wear my hearing aids
  • 1:02
    with the headphones that doesn't work at
  • 1:05
    all just putting the audio directly into
  • 1:10
    the hearing aids delivers a an ever so
  • 1:14
    slight delay which is too annoying
  • 1:16
    because it has to go through bluetooth
  • 1:17
    and all kinds of other crap that's
  • 1:20
    interesting
  • 1:20
    yes it's doable but it's slight and I
  • 1:24
    still like the the way like immediate
  • 1:26
    and I like the weight of the cans on my
  • 1:28
    head you know but I choose between
  • 1:33
    keeping it at 11 because I have an you
  • 1:35
    know I have a the output of the of the
  • 1:38
    mixing system goes into a separate
  • 1:41
    headphone amp just to Jack that's not
  • 1:43
    enough for my deafness but then I'd have
  • 1:45
    to tape the the headphones to my head
  • 1:48
    with no masking tape so it could I think
  • 1:51
    could leak so I just decided to turn it
  • 1:53
    down
  • 1:54
    so I don't know what I said honestly
  • 1:56
    okay
  • 1:57
    yeah but hopefully there'll be less
  • 1:59
    feedback and that will annoy people less
  • 2:02
    I never heard it what we're just gonna
  • 2:07
    keep this going you never heard what the
  • 2:08
    feedback cards it's constant it's gotten
  • 2:10
    much worse since I've really been using
  • 2:13
    the hearing aids a lot and then when I
  • 2:15
    take them out and I put the headphones
  • 2:16
    on it's like but I don't know what it
  • 2:19
    can't hear sure
  • 2:21
    yeah but I just a number of people
  • 2:24
    noticed that so thank you thank you
  • 2:25
    thank you so we'll see how we do yeah
  • 2:31
    it's true
  • 2:35
    well let's see we start off with it you
  • 2:37
    know everybody's family out there yeah
  • 2:43
    happy Mother's Day all the moms that's
  • 2:46
    right we get a poor response to the
  • 2:48
    newsletter and the Mother's Day
  • 2:49
    promotion one of our producers sent in a
  • 2:53
    note and said it's obvious why this
  • 2:55
    happens because unlike you who have no
  • 2:58
    moms and think that everyone else hates
  • 2:59
    their mom for some reason people are
  • 3:03
    sending their money to their moms as
  • 3:04
    gifts instead of to the show I think
  • 3:10
    it's possible people are doing that
  • 3:12
    although I don't know what could be
  • 3:14
    better than a shout out on the best
  • 3:16
    podcast in the universe for Mom ok
  • 3:18
    flowers are nice too but you know this
  • 3:21
    will be around in some form long after
  • 3:23
    we're all ours die as I'm reliably
  • 3:26
    informed so yes so happy Mother's Day we
  • 3:31
    do have some people who want to thank
  • 3:32
    their mom so we'll be doing that in our
  • 3:34
    donation segments but you know one of
  • 3:38
    the the highlights of my television year
  • 3:40
    yeah then I always look forward to
  • 3:43
    watching is the European Song Contest
  • 3:46
    the Eurovision Song Contest I should say
  • 3:49
    you you talk about this thing because
  • 3:51
    I'm always excited about it like the
  • 3:53
    songs I like how all these countries
  • 3:55
    compete has nothing to do with Europe
  • 3:56
    it's the Eurovision so you know Israel
  • 3:58
    won last year so this year
  • 4:00
    well whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
  • 4:03
    whoa whoa whoa it's just not in Europe
  • 4:08
    it's the Eurovision we do this every
  • 4:11
    year to you
  • 4:13
    it's eurovision has nothing to do with
  • 4:15
    the EU or europe europe oh okay just
  • 4:18
    it's just it's like one-hour cleaners
  • 4:24
    take two days yes just the names just a
  • 4:27
    name just a name exactly you're a vision
  • 4:30
    israel won last year you'll remember was
  • 4:34
    kind of a funky they they tend to have
  • 4:35
    some funky acts and and they they swept
  • 4:39
    everything and so now the contest which
  • 4:42
    i think is the final is next week this
  • 4:44
    weekend we have a semi-finals all very
  • 4:47
    exciting but the palestinians are now
  • 4:51
    calling for a boycott of course and
  • 4:54
    fight over your hummus all the time and
  • 4:56
    now we got to fight over songs in the
  • 4:58
    eurovision song contest this this will
  • 5:01
    not stand that the palestinians come
  • 5:03
    calling for a boycott that that's gonna
  • 5:08
    close it close it but there's a lot of
  • 5:12
    sympathy with with the palestinian
  • 5:15
    plight which i discovered there is no
  • 5:16
    country named Palestine yeah yeah yeah
  • 5:20
    and once you start looking into it
  • 5:22
    that was a good documentary I saw I was
  • 5:24
    interested in yeah the two-state
  • 5:26
    solution
  • 5:27
    you know the two-state solution was that
  • 5:29
    was the original idea is set forth by I
  • 5:32
    think it was still League of Nations
  • 5:34
    that was that was the resolution this is
  • 5:37
    me a to stay in place and it never
  • 5:39
    played out kind of
  • 5:43
    so here we go then we have the artists
  • 5:46
    calling for you buy them some uh some I
  • 5:50
    mean it like PBS for example some who
  • 5:53
    believe they're you're in Europe mm-hmm
  • 5:55
    but they never play this this whole
  • 5:58
    event in the US at all nobody cares you
  • 6:01
    know there is one channel that carries
  • 6:02
    it it's and and the thing about the
  • 6:06
    Eurovision Song Contest certainly in the
  • 6:09
    Netherlands but above all in the United
  • 6:11
    Kingdom who I don't think they've won
  • 6:13
    since brotherhood of man did kisses for
  • 6:16
    me wait which this when I was eight or
  • 6:20
    nine they'd have unfortunately passed
  • 6:23
    away but Sir Terry Wogan who was a
  • 6:24
    famous BBC Radio 2 presenter yeah he
  • 6:28
    would do the voice-over and he would
  • 6:30
    just sit there probably a little bit
  • 6:33
    inebriated if not sloshed drunk and just
  • 6:36
    make fun of everybody because the Brits
  • 6:38
    always knew that never ever get in the
  • 6:40
    final they never win and and so now in
  • 6:44
    the emails be worth watching well it was
  • 6:46
    and now in the US we have what is the
  • 6:48
    name of the channel that Univision no
  • 6:52
    it's not Univision it's something you
  • 6:53
    have to know it's a it's a real walk I'm
  • 6:58
    sure it's on the Pluto TV no it'll be on
  • 7:03
    it's something with a T but they get two
  • 7:06
    gay guys to sit there and comment on
  • 7:08
    everything which is perfect you know
  • 7:10
    campy can't be gay guys like what Cooper
  • 7:13
    and Anderson Cooper and what's-his-face
  • 7:16
    Andy Cohen Andy Cohen always tried to do
  • 7:20
    on New Year's Eve on CNN only these guys
  • 7:23
    pull it off Court TV
  • 7:26
    I think it's logo that's where it is
  • 7:29
    logo logo broadcasted Iceland has a wah
  • 7:35
    and will like heavy metal kind of grunge
  • 7:38
    crazy ass with all the frightening video
  • 7:41
    clip it's not your you know your your
  • 7:44
    syrup syrupy yeah all you need to do is
  • 7:47
    just put Katy Perry on the judges podium
  • 7:50
    and then you'll have it may they be
  • 7:52
    she'll carry it yeah but see now this is
  • 7:55
    the beauty of the Eurovision song
  • 7:56
    contest is there's a each country has
  • 7:59
    its own professional judges and they
  • 8:01
    vote and they're not allowed to vote on
  • 8:02
    their own country but then you have the
  • 8:04
    the the text vote and you know and you
  • 8:08
    see all the politics coming into play
  • 8:09
    you know adjacent countries who will
  • 8:12
    vote for each other you know if they
  • 8:14
    don't like that country then you know
  • 8:15
    everyone hates Russia so they don't vote
  • 8:17
    for them except for the countries that
  • 8:19
    do love Russia so it's just it's a
  • 8:21
    wonderful evening
  • 8:22
    apparently logo stop doing it damn it
  • 8:28
    it's ridiculous I do think it could be
  • 8:31
    when you mentioned Terry Wogan just rent
  • 8:34
    ragging on it watch that you and I could
  • 8:38
    do this actually we could do make it
  • 8:41
    Ragan as much as anybody but we could do
  • 8:43
    a good job I think it would be fun to
  • 8:45
    have you just being like what is this
  • 8:49
    [Music]
  • 8:50
    country all right well see if anyone is
  • 8:59
    carrying it next year should be a big
  • 9:01
    event maybe look this is our exit
  • 9:04
    strategy let me see if we lay about this
  • 9:11
    let me see if we can get a feed that
  • 9:14
    everyone will be watching a eagle feed a
  • 9:16
    legal feed and then and then we'll just
  • 9:18
    pop on our stream and and we'll just
  • 9:20
    provide commentary you can sit on the
  • 9:22
    couch while you do it now we got to do
  • 9:25
    it on video it has to be video we can't
  • 9:29
    can't we just provide it oh now I see
  • 9:31
    what you're saying yeah it has to be
  • 9:33
    synched with the video but we don't have
  • 9:34
    to be on camera
  • 9:40
    space science 3000 with the two of our
  • 9:43
    shadows in front you know silhouettes of
  • 9:47
    our heads and maybe a third head I think
  • 9:50
    that's complicating and already
  • 9:52
    well-thought-out format just do the
  • 9:54
    voice-over you don't need to do anything
  • 9:56
    else how did whoa good do it he just
  • 9:58
    voiceover he was just in the background
  • 9:59
    he was never never I don't have a video
  • 10:01
    feed yeah this is good a video feed and
  • 10:03
    then you and I will just rag on it
  • 10:05
    complicate it later wait a minute wait a
  • 10:07
    minute
  • 10:08
    I think this is
  • 10:10
    I think this is it this weekend that's
  • 10:12
    that's the wedding weekend and well so
  • 10:19
    either that or we can sit in my studio
  • 10:21
    and do it live together
  • 10:24
    yeah means a little wedding maybe not
  • 10:26
    maybe not all right well I've determined
  • 10:30
    there is no news in America oh I got
  • 10:33
    plenty of really yeah let me guess
  • 10:37
    barber let go something like that yeah
  • 10:41
    the news you caught I didn't understand
  • 10:45
    it where you know you said when you I'll
  • 10:46
    try to try it again
  • 10:48
    barber no no I only have one actually
  • 10:51
    from that whole thing okay even though I
  • 10:53
    promised clips I got nothing I got the
  • 10:55
    one that is kind of interesting probably
  • 10:57
    this okay I'm gonna flip it would play
  • 11:00
    that then it's a go Mart on the cou on
  • 11:03
    the Nadler committee oh he calls it a
  • 11:05
    coup yeah nice and now this committee
  • 11:08
    Majority is on the wrong side of a very
  • 11:13
    important historic time we've never had
  • 11:18
    the intelligence community the FBI
  • 11:23
    people at the top of the DOJ abusing
  • 11:28
    their powers to create a case against a
  • 11:33
    president where there was none where
  • 11:37
    assets were actually used to try to set
  • 11:40
    up members of the Trump campaign when
  • 11:44
    there was no case to try to create a
  • 11:47
    case we ought to be all over that we
  • 11:50
    ought to be demanding answers from the
  • 11:52
    FISA judge or judges who were either a
  • 11:58
    contempt to have fraud committed against
  • 12:02
    their courts or or complicit maybe it
  • 12:07
    was Peter Struck's buddy that he bragged
  • 12:09
    about in his text that was going to be
  • 12:12
    the FISA judge that signed warrants
  • 12:16
    where there was no probable cause of
  • 12:19
    anything
  • 12:21
    this was an attempted coup and history
  • 12:24
    is bringing that into focus more and
  • 12:28
    more clearly yeah this is very dumb idea
  • 12:31
    to call this a coup now because it's not
  • 12:34
    the definition of a coup involves the
  • 12:37
    military even an attempted coup it the
  • 12:39
    debt the textbook definition involves
  • 12:41
    military I don't think it does oh okay
  • 12:45
    do we need to okay let's take a look I
  • 12:53
    can of course be wrong because after all
  • 12:55
    I'm just a VJ it's a you coach could be
  • 12:58
    wrong cuz you're deaf but it literally
  • 13:04
    is like that of it okay let's see book
  • 13:05
    of knowledge what are we have here cou
  • 13:07
    sudden violent an illegal seizure of
  • 13:10
    power from government so it needs to be
  • 13:13
    sudden violent military mentioned the
  • 13:18
    true but it has to have best to be
  • 13:20
    violence so there was no cool look up
  • 13:23
    soft soft well I think the coup is still
  • 13:28
    ongoing if you want to take it in my
  • 13:29
    literal sense with the military
  • 13:31
    Bloomberg did an interview with the
  • 13:33
    general Kelly I have no idea why he
  • 13:37
    feels he should be talking at all but
  • 13:39
    okay and specially the guy used to be
  • 13:41
    chief of staff yeah Bloomberg doing
  • 13:46
    people do we have running the mill this
  • 13:48
    what happens and you don't have like a
  • 13:49
    major war and all it kind of lousy
  • 13:51
    players move to the top so just happened
  • 13:55
    in World War two where you had all these
  • 13:56
    boneheads running everything like that
  • 13:58
    the head of the Navy and the second net
  • 14:01
    nav second the rest of them are all let
  • 14:04
    the ship after ship was being knocked
  • 14:06
    out on the East Coast by German u-boats
  • 14:08
    oh no no there was an accident it was
  • 14:11
    just ridiculous to watch these these
  • 14:13
    these incompetence run things until they
  • 14:16
    finally got thrown out so they get
  • 14:18
    somebody so you'd win the damn thing I
  • 14:19
    thought Kelly he was revered within the
  • 14:23
    armed services and that couldn't he says
  • 14:26
    and he was indeed chief of staff
  • 14:28
    severity shouldn't be out yakking away
  • 14:30
    about his like about his experiences
  • 14:33
    boss was still in office
  • 14:34
    well worries seems irresponsible worse I
  • 14:36
    think he's propagating a coup by talking
  • 14:39
    about what needs to happen with the
  • 14:41
    president's family the team we became as
  • 14:43
    a White House staff built on what Reince
  • 14:47
    Priebus group my predecessor and a great
  • 14:49
    guy built on what he was tied to and for
  • 14:52
    that 18 months we staffed the president
  • 14:54
    very effective was it complicated to
  • 14:55
    have the president's family in the
  • 14:57
    government at the time they're there
  • 15:00
    there were very an influence that has to
  • 15:03
    be has to be dealt with this clip due to
  • 15:13
    the head right there well and he
  • 15:15
    actually says he's going to qualify that
  • 15:18
    which I thought awaiting are you're
  • 15:19
    gonna backpedal on this but now it has
  • 15:21
    to be brick has to be dealt with and
  • 15:24
    today if you were I don't mean book I by
  • 15:27
    no means I need mrs. Trump first ladies
  • 15:29
    a wonderful person like kill them or
  • 15:35
    anything you know no he meant kill them
  • 15:38
    but Melania is okay she can stay she's
  • 15:40
    good yeah you need it firstly I thought
  • 15:45
    that was just that was pretty were they
  • 15:47
    you got to be dealt with I mean is the
  • 15:50
    if Trump could trust these guys like
  • 15:52
    Rance Priebus who was the leaker you
  • 15:58
    need a great guy according to Kelly
  • 16:00
    okay look dive should not be out as I
  • 16:05
    said there's no news out
  • 16:07
    although i did i did pick up an
  • 16:09
    interesting clip from a podcast this is
  • 16:14
    oh yeah this is a member sebastian Gorka
  • 16:20
    i thought he was gone because i guess
  • 16:24
    you got I remember he left the
  • 16:26
    administration and was like dangerous
  • 16:29
    yeah I'd what was it conflict was that
  • 16:30
    why he left there was some conflict it
  • 16:33
    was his turn and they were rake them
  • 16:34
    over the coals for be and yeah of course
  • 16:36
    obviously he's a white supremacist from
  • 16:38
    support Nazi quadroon obviously we all
  • 16:41
    know there's anyone who hangs out with
  • 16:42
    Trump's got to be a Nazi
  • 16:45
    I'm so here's a podcast and he had I
  • 16:48
    think it's Victoria tune sing quite sure
  • 16:51
    what she does and my favorite digenova
  • 16:54
    Joe digenova who you know has has all
  • 16:57
    this great stuff taken out kind of a
  • 17:01
    turn for the best on this show he has
  • 17:03
    and wishes I want to say this is funny
  • 17:06
    because at least six months ago I had a
  • 17:08
    bunch of DeGeneres stuff and a lot of
  • 17:09
    it's yeah I didn't like it and I didn't
  • 17:11
    like it at the time I'm sure or not now
  • 17:14
    I actually cut most of I didn't use a
  • 17:16
    lot of it because he's too long-winded
  • 17:19
    but he's really great when it comes to
  • 17:22
    coming up with crazy ideas that are
  • 17:24
    never gonna come to fruition about
  • 17:26
    what's gonna happen well this is an
  • 17:28
    interesting one because it again it's
  • 17:30
    about Papadopoulos and how they were
  • 17:31
    trying to set Papadopoulos up and as you
  • 17:35
    and I both know having traveled
  • 17:36
    internationally there's a limitation on
  • 17:38
    how much cash you couldn't take into the
  • 17:41
    country or bring into the country which
  • 17:43
    ran to ten thousand dollars and that's
  • 17:45
    this it's an inlet unless you declare it
  • 17:48
    you know that's okay but it's a huge
  • 17:50
    pain in the butt to declare it and why
  • 17:52
    didn't he more than ten grand in cash to
  • 17:54
    travel anyway but they tried to use this
  • 17:57
    on Papadopoulos remember this is kind of
  • 18:00
    the the dumbest guy who has the the hot
  • 18:03
    italian lawyer wife who's stuck with him
  • 18:07
    through all of this spice law business
  • 18:09
    so i don't know about their relationship
  • 18:11
    but they see they seem pretty good
  • 18:13
    together and I guess she helped him out
  • 18:15
    of a potentially nasty situation you
  • 18:18
    have an incredible story Victoria about
  • 18:20
    how this man I wish I was Sebastian
  • 18:22
    Galka I could just talk like this yeah
  • 18:25

  • 18:49
    incredible story Victoria about how this
  • 18:52
    man who was targeted by our intelligence
  • 18:54
    communities oh they try to sting right
  • 18:57
    what happened to George papadopolis
  • 18:59
    after he was put on the Trump campaign
  • 19:02
    as a foreign policy adviser unpaid I
  • 19:04
    mean it's very informal he only met the
  • 19:06

  • 20:24
    let's continue a commentary starts
  • 20:26
    knocking at his door basically to say
  • 20:28
    hey I really want to deal with you
  • 20:29
    you're now very important and so well
  • 20:32
    you just come to Israel and talk to me

    about making a deal why can't you talk
  • 20:36
    now well no you need to know sir go to
  • 20:37
    your spiel the guy takes him to his
  • 20:39
    hotel room and there on the bed is ten
  • 20:41
    thousand dollars in cash in a suitcase
  • 20:43
    ten thousand dollars so I'll make it
  • 20:47
    short is very smart and says leave it
  • 20:53
    here they left it in Greece with his
  • 20:54
    lawyer he flew back to Dulles and the
  • 20:57
    second he landed the F
  • 20:59
    be i surrounded him and started
  • 21:01
    searching everything that he had and in
  • 21:03
    fact they already had his baggage from
  • 21:05
    the plane he couldn't believe this
  • 21:07
    baggage it was a complete setup course
  • 21:10
    he didn't have there was no tent there
  • 21:12
    was no $10,000 but they knew that he
  • 21:14
    hadn't declared it when he entered the
  • 21:15
    night so he had to clean it so we're
  • 21:17
    gonna map it they said we got him now
  • 21:19
    the thumbscrews all squeal and one FBI
  • 21:22
    agent said to him this is what happens
  • 21:24
    when you work for Donald Trump I believe
  • 21:30
    had to be true that's true yeah so that
  • 21:34
    was a smart move by the way I'd be like
  • 21:36
    ten grand man cheap ass the hookers man
  • 21:44
    don't you how this works is inflation to
  • 21:48
    write some dumb report so that's the
  • 21:51
    only kind of interesting news in the any
  • 21:53
    collusion files that I've found what I
  • 21:55
    did find rather fun is I have a little
  • 21:58
    flashback do you remember Eric Holder do
  • 22:01
    we remember who he is who he was you
  • 22:03
    nuts of course we do he's the fast and
  • 22:06
    furious guy who's got called up for
  • 22:08
    contempt of Congress yes he was held in
  • 22:11
    contempt that's correct
  • 22:12
    Eric Holder was the Attorney General
  • 22:14
    held in contempt I think it took a while
  • 22:17
    before they actually voted on holding
  • 22:19
    him in contempt of Congress make much
  • 22:21
    difference because the local DEA at the
  • 22:24
    time who has to do if there's gonna be
  • 22:26
    any any real legal action he was a
  • 22:30
    staunch Obama supporter he wasn't gonna
  • 22:33
    go anywhere with it yeah there was a
  • 22:35
    couple other things besides the
  • 22:36
    gun-running which was known as fast and
  • 22:38
    furious there was a arresting
  • 22:40
    journalists spying on journalists we
  • 22:44
    have such short memories and the m5m
  • 22:46
    even shorter doesn't seem to recall that
  • 22:48
    but I do have a couple of sound bites
  • 22:51
    little kampala if you will of the
  • 22:54
    mainstream back when we are talking
  • 22:56
    about contempt of Congress of an
  • 22:58
    attorney general except this was the
  • 23:01
    Obama Attorney General given what we
  • 23:03
    know about the Republican Party and the
  • 23:05
    way the House of Representatives
  • 23:06
    conducts itself when run by Republicans
  • 23:08
    and with a Democrat in the White House
  • 23:10
    it shouldn't real
  • 23:11
    countess news when a House committee
  • 23:12
    finds the Democratic Attorney General in
  • 23:15
    contempt of Congress every single
  • 23:16
    Republican voted to hold the Attorney
  • 23:18
    General in contempt over this crazy
  • 23:20
    conspiracy theory tell the Republicans
  • 23:23
    to stop this witch hunt now she's right
  • 23:26
    why go ahead with a contempt vote look
  • 23:28
    there are certain internal documents
  • 23:30
    that are not Congress's business-y it
  • 23:33
    just looks like more of our broken
  • 23:35
    politics and vicious fights now out in
  • 23:38
    the open a party in the Congress that
  • 23:40
    does just about nothing to create jobs
  • 23:41
    or to help people without jobs decide
  • 23:43
    the best way to do their job is to
  • 23:46
    shower the Obama administration with
  • 23:47
    subpoenas see if you are a person who
  • 23:49
    watches Fox News all day it is possible
  • 23:51
    that you have been marinating in this
  • 23:52
    conspiracy theory for long enough now
  • 23:54
    that this seems feasible stop-and-frisk
  • 23:58
    at the highest level grant the Attorney
  • 24:00
    General get in the emptiest pockets it
  • 24:02
    looks like stop-and-frisk does it let me
  • 24:03
    finish with my personal views of the
  • 24:05
    stop and frisk thing and I don't mean to
  • 24:07
    use this term too much but it's almost
  • 24:08
    like a stop and frisk for a lot of
  • 24:10
    people this is Republican versus
  • 24:11
    Democrat and they say this is just
  • 24:13
    theater it amounts to nothing it is a
  • 24:15
    distraction it is politics writ large in
  • 24:19
    in Washington according to most people
  • 24:21
    this is really much more to be filed in
  • 24:23
    the category of politics than law this
  • 24:26
    is contempt kabuki this is a classic
  • 24:28
    case in Washington of where you stand as
  • 24:30
    a matter of where you sit when the
  • 24:31
    Republicans have the white house they
  • 24:32
    love executive privilege
  • 24:34
    I like contempt kabuki I like yeah I
  • 24:38
    like a contempt kabuki - there was
  • 24:41
    something else in there liked it was of
  • 24:44
    course my point obviously is people this
  • 24:47
    is the same shit just different team
  • 24:50
    it's wrestling yeah WWE yeah without the
  • 24:55
    without the cool suits and the guy with
  • 24:59
    the with the guys you got the Gohmert
  • 25:06
    Beto could be one of the Mexican terror
  • 25:08
    twins way that's not I'm confusing them
  • 25:11
    sure I don't know much about wrestling
  • 25:12
    yeah it's exactly the same exactly the
  • 25:16
    same stuff now it's just the other
  • 25:18
    parties yelling the same Fox News is now
  • 25:20
    saying what these guys were saying
  • 25:22
    although Fox News man
  • 25:23
    something's he's very odd with them they
  • 25:27
    are going well they're going off Messner
  • 25:28
    style the going off message they're
  • 25:32
    going to lose your audience doing this
  • 25:33
    by the way is to present a concise it's
  • 25:39
    like to watch it shields and Brooks yeah
  • 25:42
    yeah I mean shields and Brooks they're
  • 25:44
    supposed to be what you know supposed to
  • 25:45
    give us two sides of an argument no no
  • 25:47
    they're both in total agreement and that
  • 25:48
    new who wants to watch them I mean I do
  • 25:50
    have an effect I got a good example this
  • 25:53
    is a summary of the latest shields
  • 25:55
    Brooks and shields summaries on PBS
  • 25:58
    subpoenas for the president's son
  • 26:00
    subpoenas for the Attorney General what
  • 26:04
    do we make of all this well I mean I
  • 26:06
    think it's the House Banking Committee
  • 26:09
    across the board and and now led by a
  • 26:14
    that I just think duty that in Iran in
  • 26:21
    Venezuela I mean just but this and for
  • 26:26
    the this isn't the system wasn't
  • 26:28
    intended for this I mean you know it's a
  • 26:30
    complete breakdown of the checks and
  • 26:31
    balances system I smells Dvorak's razor
  • 26:33
    blade in this this clip that's the way
  • 26:37
    it goes no he talks like that
  • 26:38
    no don't believe it I have a different
  • 26:43
    example of Fox News just I don't know
  • 26:46
    this is specifically Tucker Carlson and
  • 26:48
    I think he may I don't know he's
  • 26:50
    compromised but not not in the way you
  • 26:52
    would think he had Andrew yang on now
  • 26:57
    Andrew yang is is we're focusing on him
  • 26:59
    because we get complaints that we don't
  • 27:02
    that no one focuses on we love no money
  • 27:06
    I mean I'm surprised he gets as much
  • 27:08
    airtime as he does where a guy with no
  • 27:10
    money
  • 27:10
    well I we love his PowerPoint idea the
  • 27:13
    State of the Union on PowerPoint and
  • 27:15
    that's that's his slogan for this year
  • 27:17
    PowerPoint PowerPoint
  • 27:20
    he is the man who on Joe Rogan was
  • 27:23
    talking about the universal basic income
  • 27:25
    being the way to go and now he has a new
  • 27:27
    gambit which he rolled out on Tucker
  • 27:31
    Carlson I was well I wasn't surprising
  • 27:34
    to hear this from a Democratic primary
  • 27:37
    can at
  • 27:38
    it was surprising to hear Tucker Carlson
  • 27:40
    all in on these this idea I have
  • 27:43
    standing in this particular area having
  • 27:46
    lived in multiple countries with this
  • 27:48
    particular situation and I thought it
  • 27:50
    was interesting that Fox again is moving
  • 27:53
    away from their their core message I
  • 27:55
    don't know if a lot of people in America
  • 27:56
    understand what this is really about or
  • 27:58
    what it really means but the way it's
  • 28:00
    presented is I'm curious at best
  • 28:03
    yeah Amazon's the most egregious example
  • 28:05
    where they're now soaking up twenty
  • 28:06
    billion dollars in business and causing
  • 28:08
    30% of American malls and stores to
  • 28:10
    close and taxpayers are seeing zero in
  • 28:12
    return so if you look at what other
  • 28:14
    advanced economies have done they
  • 28:16
    figured this out they've said look we
  • 28:18
    need to have a mechanism in place so
  • 28:19
    that Amazon is gonna pay its fair share
  • 28:21
    along with Netflix and Delton these
  • 28:24
    other companies that are paying zero in
  • 28:25
    taxes so what they've done is they broke
  • 28:27
    can you guess
  • 28:27
    can you guess government regulate Amazon
  • 28:33
    no it's better well in a way yeah
  • 28:35
    actually yes in a way I've adopted a
  • 28:37
    value-added tax where then stay with it
  • 28:43
    tiny slice of every Amazon sale every
  • 28:45
    Google search and on and on and it's
  • 28:47
    very very hard for companies like Amazon
  • 28:49
    to gain their way out of actually gonna
  • 28:50
    roll that back per second because he
  • 28:52
    literally says here you know Delton
  • 28:56
    these other companies that are paying
  • 28:57
    zero in taxes what they've done is
  • 28:58
    they've adopted a value-added tax where
  • 29:01
    then the American people would get a
  • 29:03
    tiny slice of every Amazon sale every no
  • 29:06
    this is I'm gonna play the whole clip
  • 29:13
    but a value-added tax he's saying oh the
  • 29:17
    American people will get a piece of that
  • 29:18
    yeah after you pay all of it so here's
  • 29:22
    this brilliant idea I say I'm gonna pay
  • 29:24
    this value-added tax and I'll get 10% of
  • 29:27
    it back in services that sounds like a
  • 29:29
    great deal
  • 29:30
    yeah no yeah but to get a dime back
  • 29:34
    Google search and on and on and it's
  • 29:36
    very very hard for companies like Amazon
  • 29:37
    to game their way out of a value-added
  • 29:39
    tax system so why don't we have that
  • 29:43
    it's a great question
  • 29:48
    just listen to it for a sec we could
  • 29:51
    stop it every ten second company is like
  • 29:53
    Amazon to game their way out of a
  • 29:55
    value-added tax system so so why don't
  • 29:58
    we have that it's a great question I
  • 30:00
    mean people have been advocating for is
  • 30:03
    time and my campaign is advocating and
  • 30:06
    championing it right now because we we
  • 30:08
    need to wise up to the fact that
  • 30:10
    companies like Amazon are very smart and
  • 30:12
    moving their earnings through places
  • 30:14
    like Ireland where the American taxpayer
  • 30:16
    will see none of it whereas the
  • 30:17
    value-added tax will make it impossible
  • 30:19
    for them to sell to us without paying
  • 30:22
    into our society their fair share as if
  • 30:25
    they're going to be paying that fair
  • 30:26
    share this is so great the way he's
  • 30:28
    explaining it and Tucker buys it so why
  • 30:31
    are you the only candidate who's
  • 30:33
    thinking through what to do about this
  • 30:36
    yeah well we already answered that
  • 30:38
    question I think it's kind of weird I
  • 30:40
    think it's weird again all you have to
  • 30:42
    do is look around the world and say
  • 30:43
    other countries other advanced economies
  • 30:45
    have figured this out we're the only
  • 30:47
    advanced economy that does not have a
  • 30:48
    value-added tax in place and we need to
  • 30:52
    make sure that the American people are
  • 30:53
    actually seeing some of the gains from
  • 30:55
    the incredible innovation and value that
  • 30:57
    companies like Amazon and Salesforce and
  • 31:00
    Netflix all of whom paid zero in taxes
  • 31:02
    last year are getting away with really
  • 31:05
    and they're doing their job which is to
  • 31:07
    pay as little in taxes as possible I
  • 31:08
    have to do our job which is to make its
  • 31:10
    the American people see our fair share
  • 31:12
    so does that I mean just argue the other
  • 31:15
    side for a second with that increase and
  • 31:19
    presumably would increase the cost to
  • 31:20
    American consumers of goods right yes
  • 31:22
    well in some instances in some cases the
  • 31:25
    companies will find cost efficiencies or
  • 31:27
    a part of it and that's one reason why
  • 31:29
    my campaign wants to take that money
  • 31:32
    that we're getting from the value-added
  • 31:33
    tax would turn at the American people in
  • 31:35
    the form of a dividend because that's
  • 31:37
    the most direct way that we can actually
  • 31:39
    have the American people benefit the
  • 31:41
    fear is that even if we do end up
  • 31:44
    increasing the tax rate on some of these
  • 31:46
    companies
  • 31:46
    people won't benefit from that person
  • 31:51
    running for president and I sound a
  • 31:53
    great idea to me I appreciate it's a
  • 31:54
    great idea there you go
  • 31:56
    great idea listen liten mr. Karlson
  • 32:00
    about the value-added tax which i lived
  • 32:03
    under in the Netherlands and Belgium and
  • 32:06
    the United Kingdom the tact the
  • 32:09
    value-added tax in the Netherlands when
  • 32:11
    I was there I think it's still easier 20
  • 32:12
    or 21 percent and you pay for that much
  • 32:16
    off the top yeah we thing you buy and
  • 32:19
    it's an added tax so it's not building
  • 32:22
    yeah get the word added in there that's
  • 32:24
    not the thing
  • 32:25
    Tucker sir said well in other words more
  • 32:28
    taxes yes and and you consumer you pay
  • 32:31
    for it and here's the problem with the
  • 32:33
    value-added tax if you add that if you
  • 32:36
    start down that road it'll be ok
  • 32:39
    everybody
  • 32:40
    great idea of 5% value-added tax and
  • 32:44
    somehow just like the carbon tax and
  • 32:46
    canden Avia it'll come back to you
  • 32:48
    magically alright so we're paying that
  • 32:50
    and you know what happens in two years
  • 32:54
    everybody got a shortfall here we need
  • 32:58
    to up that value-added tax just a bit
  • 33:00
    don't worry it's really the companies
  • 33:02
    paying for it don't you worry about it
  • 33:03
    it's all good bad ideas 10% times 15 I'm
  • 33:07
    amazed honey I'm amazed how he can back
  • 33:10
    this there's clearly a right wing
  • 33:13
    authorized now me that Tucker doesn't
  • 33:16
    travel that much he probably doesn't
  • 33:21
    talk about any other countries he really
  • 33:24
    made me go down to Cancun and that's
  • 33:26
    about it
  • 33:27
    listen we grew up watching this guy and
  • 33:29
    he was wearing a bow tie so you don't
  • 33:32
    travel anywhere if you wear one of those
  • 33:33
    not unless you're a professor and you
  • 33:36
    know visiting scholar somewhere I'm a
  • 33:38
    publisher yes I've read about the same
  • 33:43
    level as my you know as Christopher
  • 33:45
    Buckley my exit cousin-in-law whatever
  • 33:48
    he was mm-hmm that kind of guy who's
  • 33:53
    going to want to read the newspaper on
  • 33:56
    the on a computer screen yes no way I
  • 34:00
    okay I have an AOL address but that's
  • 34:02
    all I'm just keeping it at that
  • 34:03
    Christopher Buckley douche
  • 34:08
    so that is the media landscape it's
  • 34:11
    changing rapidly where we have a guy
  • 34:13
    like yang promoting this and it's a this
  • 34:16
    is I was like a great idea that's again
  • 34:19
    it's like soccer now I do want to point
  • 34:23
    out I've had down in my notes I want to
  • 34:26
    make a prediction do still have a red
  • 34:28
    book we haven't looked in the red book
  • 34:29
    in a long time I gave up on it because I
  • 34:32
    can realize I can't read my own writing
  • 34:33
    I think that for people track of these
  • 34:38
    so you just predict what you want okay I
  • 34:40
    believe that football let's just call it
  • 34:44
    instead of soccer football I think is
  • 34:47
    going to be extremely big on US
  • 34:52
    television but it'll only will be
  • 34:55
    women's football there's something about
  • 34:59
    this that especially our team the United
  • 35:01
    States team who are all cute there's
  • 35:04
    something about this that is going
  • 35:06
    places that's my prediction I think
  • 35:10
    we'll see with joy women when I was in
  • 35:12
    Croatia a few years back we were talking
  • 35:16
    about this and the grow Asian said well
  • 35:18
    yeah we understand that football is very
  • 35:21
    popular in the United States but only
  • 35:23
    amongst women hmm and women tears only
  • 35:26
    women teams men don't play it isn't
  • 35:29
    isn't our bus and when they said I'm not
  • 35:31
    gonna correct you - no you're absolutely
  • 35:33
    right men do not play soccer as we call
  • 35:36
    it that's only played by women and
  • 35:39
    that's just the way it is in our country
  • 35:41
    it's it's for women only now we have a
  • 35:44
    good really good team though don't we
  • 35:46
    yeah elgu world champs yeah yeah we have
  • 35:49
    great women soccer players well I want
  • 35:51
    to promote them I think I'm looking at
  • 35:54
    the list by the way just to back up a
  • 35:55
    little bit look at the list of value
  • 35:57
    added text and remembering it starts to
  • 35:59
    always starts off like at 5 or 10%
  • 36:00
    mm-hmm right now in hunger its 27% jeez
  • 36:05
    I thought they harmonized that to EU
  • 36:06
    everyone had to have 2000 no they're all
  • 36:08
    different
  • 36:09
    really Norway is 25% 25% 35% I remember
  • 36:15
    back when I had money in an airplane
  • 36:17
    it's like yeah I want new avionics they
  • 36:19
    said ok well it's gonna be I was like 8
  • 36:21
    thousand euros or something like wow
  • 36:23
    that's a lot of money but okay whoa oh
  • 36:24
    oh but there's 21% of value-added tax
  • 36:27
    like what is through on two thousand two
  • 36:31
    thousand euros just for that no it make
  • 36:34
    it drives you nuts
  • 36:40
    I'm looking at these other numbers 25%
  • 36:43
    for the far Fargo islands is everybody's
  • 36:45
    this is crazy
  • 36:47
    have are no agenda logo on the on the
  • 36:50
    the team uniform that'd be cool we can
  • 36:55
    make it happen I mean this when you're
  • 36:57
    traveling people should notice when
  • 36:58
    you're traveling you should get your
  • 37:00
    receipts where everything you buy this
  • 37:01
    over a few bucks yeah you can get your
  • 37:03
    get to the airport yep you're
  • 37:04
    value-added tax deadline and you get
  • 37:06
    your money back
  • 37:07
    yeah yes which is not always convenient
  • 37:12
    no it's not always convened and the
  • 37:14
    people who were sitting there also
  • 37:15
    they're mean especially than with the
  • 37:17
    people in France I think I bought a pair
  • 37:19
    of glasses and France because I broke my
  • 37:21
    glasses got a new pair and I want to
  • 37:23
    went to retrieve the v80 and they just
  • 37:25
    they just mean and rude what you know
  • 37:32
    it's crazy okay so now yang is off of my
  • 37:38
    list of anyone even worthwhile anytime
  • 37:42
    anyone brings up the value-added taxes
  • 37:44
    and especially when they throw the
  • 37:46
    bullcrap at you like he did which is
  • 37:48
    just advanced economies yeah the smart
  • 37:54
    ones have it yeah yeah good to remind
  • 37:59
    you that you know that v80 also gets
  • 38:01
    tacked on to medical costs medical
  • 38:03
    procedures well where's the value I like
  • 38:09
    this value it really should be just
  • 38:13
    called an added taxes the dumb facts so
  • 38:19
    here's a thing I picked up for one of
  • 38:22
    the networks that just uh I kind of a
  • 38:24
    rundown you know read they really do
  • 38:26
    want bite into run they think he can win
  • 38:28
    yeah and so here's a classic run down a
  • 38:32
    bite and run down at what's going on
  • 38:33
    with Biden and who's this from which
  • 38:35
    outlet you know I forgot to write it
  • 38:38
    down but there's a zephyr it's one of
  • 38:41
    the Oh an extra part today the one of
  • 38:48
    the network's from the minute Joe Biden
  • 38:50
    sets foot under the campaign
  • 38:52
    trail he is the person to beat the
  • 38:55
    question is whether one of these 19
  • 38:58
    other candidates emerges as his chief
  • 39:01
    adversary or whether his biggest
  • 39:03
    obstacle will be Joe Biden himself the
  • 39:06
    t-shirt knows a lot about it is mama
  • 39:08
    lived in in Long Island for ten years or
  • 39:11
    so god rest her soul and although she's
  • 39:16
    wait your mom still your mom still alive
  • 39:19
    god bless her soul because he is a
  • 39:24
    household name
  • 39:25
    they put one foot in front of the other
  • 39:27
    they keep going
  • 39:29
    that's the unbreakable spirit of the
  • 39:32
    people of America and also he screams a
  • 39:35
    much broader set of policy experiences
  • 39:39
    to the table than really any other
  • 39:41
    candidate I believe we have so botched
  • 39:44
    this policy sohbats the opportunities to
  • 39:48
    move on the sandanista government the
  • 39:52
    SNL the scandal we need not tell anyone
  • 39:56
    is the biggest white-collar ripoff in
  • 39:59
    this nation's history judge if I look
  • 40:01
    only at what you've said and written as
  • 40:03
    used to happen in the past I would have
  • 40:05
    to vote no for all the respect that he
  • 40:07
    is given as the elder statesman if you
  • 40:10
    look back at Joe Biden's previous races
  • 40:13
    his 1988 bid flamed out in the middle of
  • 40:17
    a plagiarism scandal in 2008 he won
  • 40:21
    exactly four percent of the vote in the
  • 40:25
    Iowa caucuses there is a lack of message
  • 40:29
    discipline
  • 40:35
    I remember in the 2008 campaign after
  • 40:40
    the Obama team put him on the ticket at
  • 40:43
    a fundraiser late in the campaign he
  • 40:46
    went so far as to apocalyptically almost
  • 40:50
    predict there would be a major
  • 40:52
    international crisis this was one of
  • 40:55
    those moments tailor-made for a Saturday
  • 40:58
    Night Live parody if you take away
  • 41:03
    nothing else from what I say here today
  • 41:05
    or indeed in this entire campaign
  • 41:06
    remember this if Barack Obama is elected
  • 41:10
    we will have a crisis yeah I'll give joe
  • 41:16
    biden credit for one thing he dragged
  • 41:20
    Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama into a
  • 41:26
    same-sex marriage do you remember that
  • 41:29
    no yes it was Obama was going to come
  • 41:33
    out and announce the policy on maybe a
  • 41:36
    Monday or Tuesday and then on some some
  • 41:38
    interview but it was it was a problem
  • 41:42
    because you know he was basically the
  • 41:43
    guy that done an interview and left us
  • 41:45
    with Robin I think from Good Morning
  • 41:47
    America Robins matter it was he said ah
  • 41:50
    no I think same-sex marriage should
  • 41:52
    should be okay he just went all in on it
  • 41:54
    which we didn't and this was shocking at
  • 41:56
    the time no one had heard of what are
  • 41:57
    you could this is from the White House
  • 41:59
    and then oh and the Obama and Hillary
  • 42:02
    they immediately had to kind of jump on
  • 42:03
    and said oh yes yes yes we've changed
  • 42:05
    our views on this and that was Joe Biden
  • 42:06
    who dragged them into that by basically
  • 42:09
    jumping into the announcement which he
  • 42:12
    wasn't even supposed to do in the first
  • 42:13
    place yeah he does a lot of that yeah I
  • 42:17
    consider that bumbling well he plays
  • 42:20
    that office bumbling I think he's a lot
  • 42:22
    smarter than we might give him credit
  • 42:23
    for in that regard well that's the
  • 42:25
    possibility but gates the guy who was
  • 42:27
    used to be in the CIA and whatever and
  • 42:30
    he was in the various staffs of the
  • 42:33
    Obama administration who wrote this book
  • 42:37
    if you recall pretty much about the
  • 42:41
    Obama administration said everything
  • 42:42
    Biden did was just um everything he did
  • 42:44
    was wrong well the only reason why he's
  • 42:49
    being pegged up on top right now is
  • 42:51
    because he's got the money yeah when you
  • 42:53
    raised $700,000 in one night
  • 42:55
    then the news media is like hi Joe how
  • 42:58
    you doing
  • 42:59
    let's do another interview so you can
  • 43:01
    buy some ads it's their money they see
  • 43:04
    that as their money who's got the money
  • 43:06
    the Biden's grabs our money let's go get
  • 43:08
    that money and then they go and you know
  • 43:10
    Monday no wait Monday uh yes Monday
  • 43:14
    night watch what happens with man are
  • 43:17
    you okay dabbe having a lozenge okay
  • 43:21
    when Beto is going to reintroduce
  • 43:24
    himself I am reading from The Associated
  • 43:27
    Press
  • 43:28
    O'Rourke plans to step up his national
  • 43:30
    media appearances after skipping most of
  • 43:32
    that kind of exposure in recent months
  • 43:34
    he is scheduled to appear on MSNBC's
  • 43:37
    Rachel Maddow show on Monday night and
  • 43:39
    ABC's The View the next day
  • 43:42
    O'Rourke acknowledges he struggled to
  • 43:44
    find his presidential campaign footing
  • 43:46
    sounds like he struggled to find a good
  • 43:48
    Booker I think in part I was just trying
  • 43:51
    to keep up when I first started out he
  • 43:53
    said after addressing about 40 people at
  • 43:55
    a recent house party in Newton Iowa I
  • 43:57
    really feel like I found my rhythm and
  • 43:59
    my pace I just feel comfortable I feel
  • 44:01
    like this is what I'm supposed to be
  • 44:02
    doing it's my calling
  • 44:07
    umberto so we'll see and he's lost so
  • 44:12
    much momentum in and when you hear him
  • 44:14
    he's dumb it's just dumb well he also
  • 44:18
    has the tries to sound like Obama with
  • 44:20
    that pacing and his waving sounds like
  • 44:23
    he's doing it Obama but you know all you
  • 44:26
    hear him say is we've got to do you know
  • 44:28
    comprehensive this reform that impeach
  • 44:31
    the president at least yeah at least
  • 44:33
    yang is saying I'm gonna do value I
  • 44:35
    detach go to universal basic income he's
  • 44:37
    not saying oh we should know he's at
  • 44:39
    least he's saying something Elizabeth
  • 44:41
    Warren still the favorite amongst the
  • 44:43
    graduating class we just got one back
  • 44:45
    here
  • 44:47
    done with the with four years in
  • 44:49
    Arkansas liking what Elizabeth Warren
  • 44:52
    has to say feels somewhat cheated scam
  • 44:54
    by the system everyone's talking about
  • 44:57
    Liz hey you know what we don't care
  • 45:00
    about anything just take this debt off
  • 45:02
    of my books she's got a real shot with
  • 45:05
    that she's got she's got that and but
  • 45:08
    the promise she's got something she's
  • 45:10
    got stuff like this - she has too much
  • 45:12
    she's creating problems for herself with
  • 45:14
    wood i play my warren clip a bed comes
  • 45:17
    just weeks after Massachusetts Senator
  • 45:20
    and 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren
  • 45:22
    unveiled a plan to break up tech giants
  • 45:24
    including Facebook Google and Amazon oh
  • 45:27
    yes she has no focus
  • 45:28
    this is she's an idiot she has no focus
  • 45:31
    she had she has something going with
  • 45:33
    these kids who are all of voting age
  • 45:34
    they probably won't vote you know these
  • 45:37
    were the the beto voters who didn't
  • 45:39
    really come out in Texas
  • 45:40
    yeah for sure too much work yeah but if
  • 45:46
    you've got 30 or $40,000 in in student
  • 45:50
    loan debt I think I can go to the poll
  • 45:53
    and vote for you is maybe but I got
  • 45:56
    Facebook no no I disagree
  • 45:59
    these kids are also moving away from
  • 46:01
    Facebook they're moving away from social
  • 46:03
    media now they had you know they they
  • 46:05
    actually have to do they're getting dogs
  • 46:07
    my dog won't let me go the idea of
  • 46:13
    breaking up the tech Jones besides being
  • 46:15
    scatterbrained it's like wait a minute
  • 46:18
    these are the guys who got all the money

  • 46:24
    Amazon's Jeff Bezos owns the Walton in
  • 46:27
    post hello hello
  • 46:29
    knock-knock you well I'm against I'm
  • 46:32
    against all of this I'm against all of
  • 46:34
    these the break up ideas because I see
  • 46:36
    the internet as a network that anyone
  • 46:38
    can access and anyone can use whatever
  • 46:41
    you know of freely available protocols
  • 46:44
    there are to distribute your information
  • 46:47
    now I don't think necessarily Facebook
  • 46:50
    and Twitter and Instagram are the
  • 46:52
    Internet
  • 46:54
    mmm that's what people believe but it's
  • 46:56
    not true it's not it's not it's just not
  • 46:59
    true so let these guys wallow in their
  • 47:02
    own shit it's fine I don't need to use
  • 47:03
    them now but anyone who participates in
  • 47:07
    this in this breakup conversation is
  • 47:10
    giving him too too much credence it
  • 47:11
    doesn't know what the internet is it's
  • 47:13
    like you're looking at the America
  • 47:15
    online version of the Internet that's
  • 47:17
    what you're talking Lizabeth warned and
  • 47:19
    all these other people yeah they don't
  • 47:22
    even know how to turn on a computer well
  • 47:23
    I think that's pretty sure they can do
  • 47:25
    that I'm pretty sure that's what's going
  • 47:33
    on it's that round button there's a lot
  • 47:39
    of different things that are problematic
  • 47:41
    for for people in government they for
  • 47:44
    instance have you been tracking Bitcoin
  • 47:47
    no I don't follow Bitcoin a closely well
  • 47:51
    going back to the I think November at
  • 47:54
    November last year and the prices
  • 47:56
    dropped from around 63 hundred dollars
  • 47:58
    to down to a low of just above 3000
  • 48:01
    right and now which I know and if you
  • 48:04
    look today I can look right now but last
  • 48:07
    I checked it was over 7,000 and if
  • 48:11
    you've ever looked at a at a stock chart
  • 48:13
    it looks like the longest bear bear trap
  • 48:17
    I've ever seen in my life yeah and
  • 48:19
    that's actually down a bit now since 68
  • 48:21
    but it was up to what's up as high as
  • 48:24
    almost 7400 which is you know higher
  • 48:29
    than it was when the drop happened and
  • 48:32
    this is causing concern for a lot of
  • 48:34
    people as certainly in in government
  • 48:37
    this is congressman Sherman and he has a
  • 48:43
    he has only one way to go for this I
  • 48:44
    look for colleagues to join with me and
  • 48:47
    introducing a bill to outlaw
  • 48:51
    cryptocurrency owner you know purchases
  • 48:55
    by Americans so that we nip this in the
  • 48:58
    bud in part because I love
  • 49:02
    nip it in the bud hello 10 years there's
  • 49:07
    something to this Bitcoin shit we should
  • 49:08
    nip that in the bud hey let me write up
  • 49:11
    a bill for y'all in part because not a
  • 49:14
    awful lot of our international power
  • 49:17
    comes from the fact that the dollar is
  • 49:19
    the standard unit of International
  • 49:22
    Finance and transactions clearing
  • 49:26
    through the New York Fed is critical for
  • 49:29
    major Oriya oil and other pressures
  • 49:31
    gonna interrupt and then I'll don't play
  • 49:32
    that's a bit again what he's saying is
  • 49:34
    is true although it may sound very very
  • 49:38
    unbelievable to most when you transact
  • 49:41
    money I think even for to go from let's
  • 49:43
    say the Netherlands to Germany I believe
  • 49:48
    it still eventually goes through the
  • 49:52
    Swift clearing cyst or they may be using
  • 49:54
    the full the full European system but
  • 49:56
    the Swift American banking system has
  • 49:58
    fought very long and hard to make sure
  • 50:00
    all money transactions go through our
  • 50:03
    system through the fan system all of
  • 50:05
    them certainly when we're talking about
  • 50:07
    dollar purchases but you know this guy's
  • 50:11
    really just laying it out as to why this
  • 50:13
    is a problem because of you know what
  • 50:15
    interests we have and I think it greatly
  • 50:18
    explained a problem to me to me it
  • 50:21
    sounds like this is exactly why Bitcoin
  • 50:23
    needs to exist of international finance
  • 50:27
    and transactions clearing through the
  • 50:30
    New York Fed is critical for major Oriya
  • 50:33
    oil and other transactions and it is the
  • 50:36
    announced purpose of the supporters of
  • 50:38
    cryptocurrency to take that power away
  • 50:41
    from us to put us in a position where
  • 50:43
    the most significant sanctions we have
  • 50:45
    on Iran for example would become
  • 50:47
    irrelevant so whether it is to
  • 50:50
    disempower our foreign policy our tax
  • 50:53
    collection enforcement or our law or
  • 50:56
    traditional law enforcement the purposes
  • 50:59
    of cryptocurrency the advantage it has
  • 51:02
    over a sovereign currency is solely to
  • 51:07
    aid in the disempowerment of the United
  • 51:11
    States and the rule of law
  • 51:13
    yeah there you go he's right Bitcoin is
  • 51:16
    anti-american
  • 51:17
    yeah true I'm all I'm all for it I have
  • 51:21
    to say I'm all for it and I think it's
  • 51:24
    great we should we deserve a little
  • 51:25
    competition on our dollar yeah we're
  • 51:28
    gonna get it from the Chinese yeah yeah
  • 51:30
    we certainly are well that how are the
  • 51:32
    Chinese now do you guys track that over
  • 51:35
    deh unplugged they got their their
  • 51:37
    increased tax tariffs or as the
  • 51:41
    importance of already tracking because
  • 51:42
    they lie the Chinese yeah well what are
  • 51:46
    they lying about they lie about their
  • 51:48
    numbers you don't know what the hell's
  • 51:49
    going on with them huh someone sent me
  • 51:52
    this you know for all you can say about
  • 51:55
    him Trump has been extremely consistent
  • 51:58
    throughout the years prior to his
  • 52:01
    presidency with the same talking points
  • 52:04
    going back to Oprah show in the late 80s
  • 52:06
    early 90s the Jiri is addressing a crowd
  • 52:10
    in 2011 that did he was he running in
  • 52:14
    somewhere around that time he was just
  • 52:15
    making noise about Obama wasn't he 2011
  • 52:18
    about because running into your 2000
  • 52:21
    right but not 2011 he was just making
  • 52:24
    make a noise just he's always always
  • 52:27
    running he's always promoting his show
  • 52:29
    and running yes so here he is addressing
  • 52:31
    a crowd specifically about tax in China
  • 52:33
    and how to tax China and how to present
  • 52:35
    it very very hard to buy anything you
  • 52:48
    know the one I said what can you do so
  • 52:54
    easy
  • 52:55
    [Music]
  • 53:01
    [Applause]
  • 53:12
    [Music]
  • 53:18
    [Applause]
  • 53:21
    hmm I guess he chose for the second way
  • 53:24
    of doing it they're responding poorly I
  • 53:30
    understand the Chinese yeah I don't like
  • 53:34
    yeah they don't like to be intimidated
  • 53:36
    but you know what I'm reading everywhere
  • 53:37
    it is okay fine you know you order this
  • 53:41
    stuff and it gets shipped from Vietnam
  • 53:43
    they're just they're just kind of using
  • 53:46
    Vietnam as a p.o box now well I haven't
  • 53:51
    heard this word yes I've I've read it
  • 53:54
    everywhere have you gotten anything for
  • 53:55
    Vietnam I have also received this is
  • 53:58
    what tipped me off to it I used to buy
  • 54:00
    art from both China and Vietnam mm-hmm
  • 54:03
    and different shops that did all kinds
  • 54:09
    of custom and it was just some fabulous
  • 54:11
    artists in those areas especially
  • 54:13
    Vietnam they got a lot of very artsy if
  • 54:16
    you go to visit the country go holy
  • 54:17
    mackerel and I noticed the one thing I
  • 54:21
    noticed the most was that FedEx and
  • 54:24
    whoever else it was had some deal so it
  • 54:28
    was pretty much everything coming out of
  • 54:30
    China was free shipping or it was a
  • 54:33
    dollar mm-hmm and I was always befuddled
  • 54:37
    by this because it made out it the same
  • 54:38
    products out of Vietnam would cost like
  • 54:41
    $30 in shipping minimum and it would
  • 54:45
    seem to me that what how does China
  • 54:47
    doing this deal with FedEx or whoever it
  • 54:50
    was UPS of all of them they're all given
  • 54:52
    China this huge deal or the Chinese were
  • 54:54
    eating the price I don't know what was
  • 54:55
    going on but I thought it was there's
  • 54:57
    some moment of corruption but we ordered
  • 54:59
    sort when we moved in we ordered a chair
  • 55:04
    from West Elm the company West Elm and
  • 55:07
    we've ordered from them before and as
  • 55:09
    with pretty much all furniture it comes
  • 55:12
    from China but this time because we've
  • 55:16
    ordered from them in the past this time
  • 55:17
    it showed up huge box large print made
  • 55:20
    in Vietnam don't think it's trying to
  • 55:22
    made in Vietnam no it doesn't say made
  • 55:25
    in China on the chair itself but I'm I'm
  • 55:28
    pretty contend then I started looking
  • 55:29
    into it I'm seeing they're either doing
  • 55:32
    subsidiary deals with factories but
  • 55:34
    basically using Vietnam as a p.o box no
  • 55:37
    I don't think so I think it was made in
  • 55:39
    Vietnam okay could be I'm just saying we
  • 55:43
    used to get from the same company who'll
  • 55:45
    be shipped from Shenzhen the Chinese
  • 55:47
    have been notorious for like moving
  • 55:50
    their manuals funny
  • 55:51
    the Taiwanese move their manufacturing
  • 55:53
    to China the China gets Chinese got
  • 55:55
    swamped in this but no in fact that
  • 55:57
    they've been outsourcing Chinese China
  • 56:00
    has been outsourced to the Vietnam and
  • 56:01
    India okay well that makes sense then
  • 56:03
    and so that I would say I would say this
  • 56:05
    the product will be better probably will
  • 56:10
    yeah they know what they're doing over
  • 56:11
    there are outstanding quality yes it's a
  • 56:16
    very interesting country they like 98
  • 56:19
    their literacy rate in Vietnam is higher
  • 56:21
    than we have it's like 98.5 percent of
  • 56:24
    the country's literate huh it's a very
  • 56:27
    interesting place ok onward yeah I don't
  • 56:36
    know if that's doing anything but it's
  • 56:37
    like a party I don't know what we're
  • 56:38
    getting about China what we're gonna do
  • 56:41
    is what we've been doing is cut them off
  • 56:44
    at the pass through at them everywhere
  • 56:46
    we can and messes mess up countries
  • 56:49
    where they want to have a foothold for
  • 56:51
    their belt and Road strategy and screw
  • 56:53
    Venezuela in the process you're just
  • 56:59
    brings me to Venezuela I'm sorry I have
  • 57:01

    and weirdness at the Venezuelan embassy
  • 57:55
    Democracy Now in Washington DC
  • 57:57
    authorities cut off water and
  • 57:58
    electricity to Venezuela's embassy is
  • 58:01
    activists with code pink and other
  • 58:02
    organizations continue around-the-clock
  • 58:05
    occupation in order to prevent a
  • 58:07
    takeover of the building by Venezuela's
  • 58:09
    US backed opposition the activists
  • 58:12
    entered the embassy in late April at the
  • 58:14
    invitation of Venezuela's government
  • 58:15
    opposition groups led by Juan Guido and
  • 58:18
    backed by the Trump administration of
  • 58:20
    pledged to take over the building so far
  • 58:22
    police and Secret Service agents have
  • 58:24
    arrested nine activists including Jerry
  • 58:26
    condone a 72 year old Vietnam War
  • 58:29
    veteran and the president of veterans
  • 58:31
    for peace who was violently tackled and
  • 58:33
    pressed to the pavement Wednesday by
  • 58:34
    five officers after he tried to bring
  • 58:37
    food to protesters occupying the embassy
  • 58:40
    now known was left bleeding from the
  • 58:42
    head and needed medical treatment he's
  • 58:44
    been charged with throwing a missile
  • 58:45
    resisting arrest and assaulting police
  • 58:48
    officers as he attempted to get food
  • 58:50
    inside the building hmm did not report
  • 58:54
    in a mainstream it does well of course
  • 58:55
    not I just this just in from one of our
  • 58:58
    lawyers within the value for value
  • 58:59
    network I have been advised and I can
  • 59:03
    confirm that this isn't he's the real
  • 59:04
    deal I've been advised by clients who
  • 59:06
    buy from China as follows
  • 59:08
    the manufacturers are moving to Vietnam
  • 59:11
    from China but the p.o box scam is being
  • 59:14
    perpetrated in Malaysia so that's how
  • 59:18
    they're rolling ok Malaysia so look for
  • 59:21
    some problems in Malaysia what can we
  • 59:22
    look and we stir up in Malaysia because
  • 59:25
    that's what it seems to be we just want
  • 59:27
    to thwart the Chinese this is
  • 59:29
    Undersecretary of State
  • 59:31
    Tom Shannon on NPR and this first clip
  • 59:36
    is about the failed coup I'm sorry
  • 59:39
    flipping in Venezuela how do the tools
  • 59:42
    available to the United States tools
  • 59:44
    compared to the vulnerabilities up to
  • 59:47
    this point the tools have not been
  • 59:49
    sufficient really beginning on January
  • 59:51
    23rd when Juan Guido declared the
  • 59:53
    presidency vacant and declared himself
  • 59:56
    the president under the Constitution the
  • 59:58
    hope at the time was that that would be
  • 1:00:00
    sufficient to flip the military it did
  • 1:00:02
    not work then the opposition working
  • 1:00:05
    with the United States and other
  • 1:00:06
    countries decided that focusing on
  • 1:00:08
    humanitarian assistance and creating a
  • 1:00:11
    confrontation at the border between
  • 1:00:12
    Colombia and Venezuela over at the
  • 1:00:15
    delivery of humanitarian assistance
  • 1:00:16
    would create a rebellion within the
  • 1:00:18
    armed forces that did not work then the
  • 1:00:21
    administration decided that sanctioning
  • 1:00:24
    the state-run oil company pet of essa
  • 1:00:26
    and effectively sending a clear signal
  • 1:00:28
    to the Armed Forces that revenues would
  • 1:00:31
    be cut off and their access to the
  • 1:00:33
    Venezuelan gravy train would end would
  • 1:00:36
    convince the military to flip that did
  • 1:00:39
    not work there's also been an effort to
  • 1:00:41
    focus on individual members or former
  • 1:00:43
    members of the military some of them
  • 1:00:44
    have been sanctioned and just the other
  • 1:00:46
    day vice president pence said the US
  • 1:00:48
    would aim to lift sanctions on an
  • 1:00:50
    individual former intelligence chief I
  • 1:00:52
    believe who switched sides is that
  • 1:00:55
    working at all well we'll have to wait
  • 1:00:56
    and see the purpose obviously is to send
  • 1:00:59
    the signal that those members of the
  • 1:01:01
    Armed Forces that choose to work with
  • 1:01:03
    the opposition if they are under
  • 1:01:05
    sanctions will have those sanctions
  • 1:01:07
    lifted and those who might be facing
  • 1:01:09
    sanctions would not face them if they
  • 1:01:12
    chose to work with the opposition we're
  • 1:01:14
    gonna have to wait and see how that's
  • 1:01:15
    received what's just amazes me is to
  • 1:01:18
    listen to this guy cavalierly speak with
  • 1:01:21
    an NPR host who easily could have been
  • 1:01:23
    lamenting the Russians meddling in our
  • 1:01:27
    elections listen to this what tools do
  • 1:01:31
    you have well this tool didn't work and
  • 1:01:33
    that tool didn't work what are you doing
  • 1:01:35
    well I'm going to Jack Venezuela
  • 1:01:37
    obviously Oh Papa Russia and China
  • 1:01:39
    the Russians have provided significant
  • 1:01:41
    sales of weapons to the Venezuelan
  • 1:01:43
    government
  • 1:01:44
    along with purchasing large quantities
  • 1:01:47
    of oil and gas and inserting themselves
  • 1:01:48
    into Venezuela's oil and gas industry
  • 1:01:51
    and then the Chinese of course also have
  • 1:01:53
    deep interests in the oil and gas sector
  • 1:01:55
    is there any way to pry those foreign
  • 1:01:58
    actors away from the Venezuelan
  • 1:02:00
    government Maduro government NPR your
  • 1:02:04
    National Public Radio is participating
  • 1:02:07
    in this radical yeah we're strategizing
  • 1:02:10
    how we can fuck the Chinese we're gonna
  • 1:02:13
    have to wait and see I personally
  • 1:02:16
    believe that calling these governments
  • 1:02:17
    out especially the Chinese and the
  • 1:02:19
    Russians was not intelligent the Chinese
  • 1:02:22
    in particular have been looking to play
  • 1:02:23
    a very low key role in this political
  • 1:02:26
    dispute and are more interested in their
  • 1:02:28
    long-term energy interests and therefore
  • 1:02:30
    it's important for the United States to
  • 1:02:33
    make very clear to the Chinese that the
  • 1:02:34
    long-term future of their relationships
  • 1:02:36
    in South America are going to depend on
  • 1:02:38
    China's willingness to help Venezuela
  • 1:02:41
    find a political accommodation that gets
  • 1:02:43
    it through this period of crisis do you
  • 1:02:44
    mean to say it would have been more
  • 1:02:45
    intelligent to quietly approach the
  • 1:02:47
    Chinese and reassure them that their
  • 1:02:49
    energy interests will be maintained no
  • 1:02:51
    matter who is running Venezuela yes but
  • 1:02:54
    also to make clear that countries who
  • 1:02:57
    have China as a number one trading
  • 1:02:58
    partner like Brazil like Argentina like
  • 1:03:01
    Chile like Peru want to maintain that
  • 1:03:03
    relationship but in order to do so that
  • 1:03:06
    the Chinese need to understand that by
  • 1:03:08
    financing the Maduro government they are
  • 1:03:10
    actually creating problems inside of
  • 1:03:12
    South America especially the outflow of
  • 1:03:15
    refugees from Venezuela that are
  • 1:03:17
    seriously affecting the stability of
  • 1:03:18
    countries like Colombia Peru Ecuador
  • 1:03:21
    Chile and Brazil yeah
  • 1:03:23
    there you go that's that's what we're
  • 1:03:26
    doing that's that's your you don't need
  • 1:03:27
    to know anything else we are all over it
  • 1:03:29
    who is that guy
  • 1:03:31
    that is the Undersecretary of state Tom
  • 1:03:34
    Shannon Shannon's speaker too much me
  • 1:03:37
    thinketh this is way out there in a
  • 1:03:40
    problem getting some other tooth that
  • 1:03:45
    was yeah I agree with you what is this
  • 1:03:47
    what is the point of this well it's not
  • 1:03:50
    like deep disinformation or some sort of
  • 1:03:53
    just giving a briefing leading or
  • 1:03:55
    anything you go on NPR just explain
  • 1:03:58
    the strategies and this makes no sues
  • 1:04:00
    heat bad that must be the way the State
  • 1:04:03
    Department of State is being run these
  • 1:04:05
    days
  • 1:04:05
    now the techno experts that we've
  • 1:04:08
    discussed who have targeted us when we
  • 1:04:10
    talk about Venezuela we're not doing it
  • 1:04:12
    right
  • 1:04:13
    I'm not talking about him right I'm
  • 1:04:16
    starting to see some patterns here as
  • 1:04:20
    there's some young Venezuelan kids and I
  • 1:04:24
    say kids in the 22 24 25 year old range
  • 1:04:28
    who put together a video specifically
  • 1:04:32
    meant for Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who
  • 1:04:36
    as we know is all in on maduro's regime
  • 1:04:40
    and the and the socialist country of
  • 1:04:43
    Venezuela at least that's the way it's
  • 1:04:45
    portrayed in the in the m5m and and then
  • 1:04:49
    this video appears I'm gonna play a
  • 1:04:51
    little bit of at first you get the idea
  • 1:04:53
    let me tell you something Alexandra
  • 1:04:55
    Alexandra Castillo Cortez I want to tell
  • 1:04:58
    you something else Olivo no funciona el

    from 22 years old I fled real socialism
  • 1:05:10
    me and my family
  • 1:05:12
    real socialism Alexandria Casa Cortez
  • 1:05:15
    like Chicago Cortez you're a liar you
  • 1:05:17
    are a liar you don't know what you're
  • 1:05:19
    talking about you're clueless
  • 1:05:20
    you have never gone through socialism so
  • 1:05:22
    you preach it like you do America will
  • 1:05:25
    never be a socialist country American
  • 1:05:28
    will never be a socialist country a lot
  • 1:05:31
    of people think socialism it's all about
  • 1:05:33
    equality and free stuff what socialism
  • 1:05:36
    is really about it's a starvation people
  • 1:05:39
    dying from lack of medicine Alexandre de
  • 1:05:41
    pasto Cortez now just notice that the
  • 1:05:44
    lack of medicine all the talking points
  • 1:05:46
    are who produces no this is why I was
  • 1:05:52
    interested in sharing this it goes on
  • 1:05:54
    for about three minutes 30 more seconds
  • 1:05:58
    to hear some of the other points you've
  • 1:06:00
    heard in this type of campaign it's
  • 1:06:02
    really about it's a starvation people
  • 1:06:04
    dying from lack of medicine Alexandre
  • 1:06:06
    DeFazio Cortez I want to tell you
  • 1:06:08
    something if you really believe in
  • 1:06:10
    socialism why are you here in the u.s.
  • 1:06:12
    why don't you move to Venezuela Cuba
  • 1:06:14
    Russia Afghanistan China
  • 1:06:17
    why don't you just go there no you talk
  • 1:06:20
    about socialism as it is something so
  • 1:06:23
    perfect but you know it's not well no
  • 1:06:25
    actually you really truly believe that
  • 1:06:27
    that he works like that but it doesn't
  • 1:06:28
    just go and look in the actual facts and
  • 1:06:31
    my just booze isn't it good to have your
  • 1:06:34
    life going every day to Starbucks
  • 1:06:36
    tweeting how much I hate capitalism from
  • 1:06:39
    your MacBook that's great right okay so
  • 1:06:41
    when I hear these things you know like
  • 1:06:43
    isn't it great drinking your Starbucks
  • 1:06:46
    and tweeting how much you hate
  • 1:06:48
    capitalism on your MacBook I'm like okay
  • 1:06:51
    these are talking points have heard them
  • 1:06:52
    before and they sound a lot with that
  • 1:06:55
    medicine thing and Maduro sounds a lot
  • 1:06:58
    like the emails we received this is
  • 1:07:00
    produced and distributed by
  • 1:07:03
    turning-point us a home of Candace Owens
  • 1:07:07
    and Charlie Kirk these are the
  • 1:07:10
    propagandists and now I'm starting to
  • 1:07:12
    think maybe it was their their outfit
  • 1:07:15
    that sent us emails who would know about
  • 1:07:16
    podcasts who would stay on top of that I
  • 1:07:19
    was giving the US State Department too
  • 1:07:21
    much credit I think so these may be the
  • 1:07:24
    actors and how does this fit in with
  • 1:07:27
    what I thought Turning Point USA was I
  • 1:07:29
    don't know I never heard of them well
  • 1:07:32
    you know Candice Owens oh yeah yeah you
  • 1:07:36
    know she's with the blex it that I like
  • 1:07:39
    Kansas Owens I'd like the list I'd like
  • 1:07:41
    what she does I'd like what she does for
  • 1:07:42
    Prager University but what is this what
  • 1:07:46
    is these these guys are - Turning Point
  • 1:07:48
    USA this is this is propagandistic crap
  • 1:07:53
    and I can't take them very seriously
  • 1:07:55
    after hearing this but well what do we
  • 1:07:58
    know about this bitch it's just like
  • 1:08:00
    that those horrible Democrat the
  • 1:08:04
    celebrity ones where the celebrities bad
  • 1:08:06
    yeah yeah I think we have to change the
  • 1:08:10
    color of blue to green black and white
  • 1:08:14
    stuff like that just black and white -
  • 1:08:16
    probably well I'm gonna look into look a
  • 1:08:18
    little deeper into turning-point and see
  • 1:08:20
    if there I know Charlie Kirk is and I
  • 1:08:23
    thought he's just
  • 1:08:25
    I thought they were kind of a good
  • 1:08:27
    outfit but this just uh can you just
  • 1:08:30
    promise our crap
  • 1:08:31
    yes yes very sour and with that I would
  • 1:08:35
    like to thank you for your courage to
  • 1:08:37
    say in the morning to you the man who
  • 1:08:38
    put the C and chai comm Johnson in the
  • 1:08:48
    morning to our troll room all trolls
  • 1:08:50
    always welcome 24 hours a day seven days
  • 1:08:53
    a week no agenda stream comms where you
  • 1:08:55
    can listen to the live stream and it is
  • 1:08:57
    often actually live interactions live
  • 1:08:59
    like it is on Thursdays and Sundays when
  • 1:09:01
    we're on the microphone you can get in
  • 1:09:04
    there you can do all kinds of stuff you
  • 1:09:05
    control we can troll some more and then
  • 1:09:08
    just troll or you could also be helpful
  • 1:09:10
    sometimes that does happen know what you
  • 1:09:13
    okay much anybody want to be helpful
  • 1:09:15
    oh no that would be a bad idea and in
  • 1:09:18
    the morning to see I believe it was yes
  • 1:09:23
    Darren O'Neill who brought us the
  • 1:09:25
    artwork for episode 11 36 1136 episodes
  • 1:09:30
    that episode was titled spy slut which
  • 1:09:33
    is a CIA term we learned on the show and
  • 1:09:36
    Darren O'Neill oh yes he brought us the
  • 1:09:41
    a fine example of what you don't like at
  • 1:09:45
    a Whole Foods checkout line someone with
  • 1:09:48
    face tattoos blown out ear earlobes and
  • 1:09:54
    I think in this case both Darren and I
  • 1:09:59
    and girl Darren and we kind of went for
  • 1:10:02
    the the cheapest laugh I guess is that
  • 1:10:05
    what we would classify this is well now
  • 1:10:08
    that you mention it nose ring mustache
  • 1:10:16
    when you saw in this this piece of art
  • 1:10:18
    now this art okay there was a bunch of
  • 1:10:22
    stuff that was actually it was all
  • 1:10:25
    borderline I mean the the kind of the
  • 1:10:28
    funniest sickest one was the black royal
  • 1:10:32
    extreme cave bear extremely racist
  • 1:10:36
    racist yes racist piece
  • 1:10:40
    I like the mental health one the most
  • 1:10:42
    but it was like more of an evergreen
  • 1:10:44
    didn't really have much to do with
  • 1:10:45
    anything the cat with the with the phone
  • 1:10:51
    is funny but not pertinent to the show
  • 1:10:55
    the thing was it we actually looked over
  • 1:10:58
    these though it was pertinent to the
  • 1:10:59
    show was the mustachioed character yeah
  • 1:11:05
    so that's why that's really the reason
  • 1:11:06
    we picked it and so what else made it an
  • 1:11:11
    email comment to us that the artwork is
  • 1:11:14
    really just part of a package of three
  • 1:11:16
    elements of promotion and I want to
  • 1:11:19
    bring that up because it does work in
  • 1:11:20
    concert we have the album art we have
  • 1:11:24
    the show title and we have the opening
  • 1:11:26
    blurb at the beginning of the show and
  • 1:11:29
    each one of those three elements is
  • 1:11:32
    important in promoting each new a new
  • 1:11:35
    episode personally I think it's like
  • 1:11:37
    Titleist yes band and we have made a
  • 1:11:40
    rule just not yes your rule is your rule
  • 1:11:45
    you can't cross over yeah you can't have
  • 1:11:48
    the the artwork be the same or have the
  • 1:11:51
    same topic as the title and the opening
  • 1:11:55
    giblet can't be related to the other two
  • 1:11:57
    either I don't know why we came up with
  • 1:11:59
    it why was you it this is place but I
  • 1:12:02
    like it makes us em well once it became
  • 1:12:06
    established mm-hmm because at some point
  • 1:12:08
    I think we did have a couple of contrary
  • 1:12:10
    well that's called issus what the
  • 1:12:11
    artworks
  • 1:12:12
    is doing once it became established we
  • 1:12:16
    just kind of said okay well this is what
  • 1:12:18
    we're gonna do we could do it it's not
  • 1:12:19
    like it's impossible no people really
  • 1:12:22
    want to hear that conversation I should
  • 1:12:24
    record it when we're discussing artwork
  • 1:12:26
    and titles
  • 1:12:28
    well let's record it you just recorded
  • 1:12:30
    it no I mean the actual process oh maybe
  • 1:12:35
    one of the things we've noticed with the
  • 1:12:36
    artwork since we're discussing it as
  • 1:12:39
    people try to guess
  • 1:12:40
    oh yeah the topic that we will be
  • 1:12:42
    interested in as art yes yeah and so if
  • 1:12:45
    the art so if we never mention it and we
  • 1:12:48
    get to the artwork say oh this guy just
  • 1:12:50
    did we didn't talk about is it a there
  • 1:12:52
    was a disappoint
  • 1:12:53
    sometimes it's like as superior piece of
  • 1:12:56
    art we said wow what a great piece of
  • 1:12:57
    art is too bad we didn't talk about this
  • 1:13:02
    that does indeed have like wait a bit we
  • 1:13:05
    missed the topic yeah a bit predict you
  • 1:13:08
    what we're gonna talk about and Pete
  • 1:13:10
    Budaj edge being called Alfred E Newman
  • 1:13:12
    by President Trump is not on my list
  • 1:13:14
    isn't that something we were ever gonna
  • 1:13:16
    talk about this show no I don't think so
  • 1:13:20
    I will say that the art that was done
  • 1:13:22
    here that makes him look like Alfred E
  • 1:13:24
    Newman is out cell done yes they will
  • 1:13:29
    probably go for a mom thing I think
  • 1:13:30
    that's pretty always good mom is always
  • 1:13:34
    safe safe bet right so let's get to our
  • 1:13:37
    donations yes this is our value for
  • 1:13:39
    value system that you listen you
  • 1:13:41
    determine if you got any value my value
  • 1:13:43
    out of the show if so kick it back in so

    people in the mouth
  • 1:19:44
    [Music]
  • 1:19:51
    European Parliament elections are coming
  • 1:19:53
    up and it's very odd because due to the
  • 1:19:57
    lag of blog of brexit the the European
  • 1:20:01
    parties are in and and they they can
  • 1:20:05
    vote on European representation since
  • 1:20:07
    the breakfast is brexit breakfast since
  • 1:20:10
    breakfast the breakfast it's not yet
  • 1:20:12
    done the European Union and just
  • 1:20:15
    explaining this is is kind of
  • 1:20:17
    complicated and but I think it's
  • 1:20:18
    interesting to do it without the visuals
  • 1:20:20
    because the European Union had a little
  • 1:20:22
    cartoon to explain exactly how it works
  • 1:20:25
    that do you know how these European
  • 1:20:28
    Parliament elections work I be remiss if
  • 1:20:32
    I said I absolutely knew but I don't
  • 1:20:34
    well I find it to be rather confusing
  • 1:20:36
    I'm sure somehow Faraj gets in is all
  • 1:20:39
    the end of the day Faraj is in this
  • 1:20:43
    year's European elections it's a big
  • 1:20:46
    deal I love this kind of Eurocentric
  • 1:20:49
    British accent it's very different from
  • 1:20:52
    from what you hear in the United in a
  • 1:20:54
    real British accent yeah it is it's it's
  • 1:20:56
    just it's very duros country Appa SH
  • 1:20:59
    yeah they got a whole room for these
  • 1:21:00
    people in Brussels who do nothing for
  • 1:21:02
    these voiceovers but it's not simple not
  • 1:21:05
    to help you get your head around them we
  • 1:21:07
    put together this handy explainer
  • 1:21:10
    confusingly different parts of the EU
  • 1:21:12
    use different voting systems but all are
  • 1:21:16
    some form of proportional representation
  • 1:21:18
    some vote for parties who have selected
  • 1:21:21
    a fixed list of candidates to appear on
  • 1:21:23
    the ballot paper other countries have
  • 1:21:25
    more open lists where voters choose a
  • 1:21:27
    party or indicate who is their favorite
  • 1:21:29
    candidate here electors choose as many
  • 1:21:33
    candidates as they like and number them
  • 1:21:35
    by preference turnout at EU elections
  • 1:21:38
    has dropped from 62% to 42% over the
  • 1:21:42
    last four decades because you made it so
  • 1:21:44
    easy that's why that's despite a handful
  • 1:21:46
    of countries including Belgium Greece
  • 1:21:47
    and Bulgaria where voting is compulsory
  • 1:21:52
    Emme peas are elected to represent
  • 1:21:54
    geographical areas regions in some
  • 1:21:56
    countries like Italy while in others
  • 1:21:58
    such as Germany they have the whole
  • 1:22:00
    country as their constituency the number
  • 1:22:03
    each country gets it is proportional to
  • 1:22:05
    its population now this is kind of
  • 1:22:07
    interesting when you hear the difference
  • 1:22:08
    it's a base it's pretty much the way our
  • 1:22:11
    House of Representatives works except
  • 1:22:13
    they don't have the a the concept of a
  • 1:22:15
    Senate with some equal power so here
  • 1:22:17
    it's just whoever is the biggest rules
  • 1:22:19
    Germany the most populous will get 96
  • 1:22:22
    MEP s for its eighty 2.8 million people
  • 1:22:25
    while tiny Malta with four hundred and
  • 1:22:27
    seventy five thousand people has just
  • 1:22:29
    six they will serve a five-year term
  • 1:22:32
    2019 to 2024 and spend their time
  • 1:22:35
    between European Parliament in
  • 1:22:37
    Strasbourg and Brussels they pass EU
  • 1:22:40
    laws and approve its budget along with
  • 1:22:42
    the European Council MEP s while
  • 1:22:45
    representing countries or regions sit in
  • 1:22:48
    transnational groups in the parliament
  • 1:22:50
    of according to political ideology for
  • 1:22:52
    example there are groupings to represent
  • 1:22:54
    the center-right socialists greens and
  • 1:22:56
    others for Euroskeptics MEP s also help
  • 1:23:00
    choose the president of the European
  • 1:23:02
