Sunday July 10 2022. This Year Award winning cable nation media
0:10
assassination episode 1467. This is no agenda, repeating the line
0:17
and broadcasting live from the heart of the Texas hill country
0:19
here in FEMA Region number six in the morning, everybody. I'm
0:22
Adam curry.
0:23
I'm from Northern Silicon Valley where I just saw a 43 car train
0:27
headed to China. I'm Jesse Devorah.
0:31
Buzzkill. We're doing local reports. We're going to have 110
0:36
degrees here in Fredericksburg, Texas. To date, so as well as
0:41
warm, hot. I think they're messing with us, John. That's
0:45
hot. They're messing with us, man.
0:47
Well, it's a dry heat.
0:50
Oh, yeah, that's what it is. It's always a dry heat. It is a
0:53
dry heat. Yeah, it's very dry. We have this really crazy wind
0:57
now that goes along with it. So it's just a dry wind. A very dry
1:01
wind. Yeah, I'd say it's kind of like turning on site. Yes,
1:05
shrivel up, right before your very eyes pretty much like a
1:09
prune.
1:10
I don't know what we're gonna do. You know, we never got any
1:12
of the rain that everyone else got. They went right around
1:15
Fredericksburg, which is what Fredericksburg is designed to
1:18
do, or why it was chosen. So we didn't we didn't. Yes, it was
1:22
chosen by the American Indians and later by the Germans.
1:25
Because when it rains out here, I mean, it's crazy. I mean, it's
1:29
destructive rain. So this was less rain because of the
1:32
elevation. That's the story. So it's safer. Apparent Well, if I
1:38
guess if you're an American, Indian or German and I want to
1:46
start start this off with I found this fantastic interview.
1:52
For what is it facts matter? It's probably from where those
1:56
anti CCP guys NTD No, not didn t de The Epoch Times. Yeah, Epoch
2:03
Times. And it's also important to do it before this thing is
2:07
over. Because I think it will be over pretty quickly. I'm talking
2:10
about the farmers in the Netherlands. This is now world
2:12
news. And we've been talking about these protests from the
2:16
farmers and what's going on in the Netherlands for if not
2:19
weeks, months. And you know, so now Tucker has found his his go
2:24
to Dutch lady. Have you seen her?
2:27
Why don't they just invite you on the show? Well, it would help
2:30
the podcast.
2:32
No kidding. They will do all the producers listen to the show. So
2:35
and she's What's your name? Flooding and Brooke is her last
2:38
name she's a Dutch she's
2:40
not as famous in Holland as you are correct.
2:43
She's getting pretty famous. But but you know and I think she
2:46
works for Prager you and you know, this is a very very very
2:50
politically
2:50
okay, never good enough said very,
2:52
very political. She's I think she's engaged or married to some
2:57
guy like I want to say it would usually be the case now but
3:01
someone who's, you know, kind of like a Twitter YouTube type
3:05
person. Oh, they got trolls. I'm counting on you anyway. And you
3:11
know, she actually gave a pretty good report. I think I saw it on
3:14
Thursday or Friday.
3:16
Good and entertaining Dutch accent she has
3:19
a very entertaining Dutch accent and obviously you cannot get
3:23
ignore her Telugu Telugu prosity
3:25
her tell she's pretty.
3:28
You'd like you haven't seen her. It's tele Jannati.
3:32
There you go. Tell her show title. Tell her.
3:37
Tell her No, I have not seen her. I haven't been watching
3:40
Tucker. Oh, okay.
3:41
I usually fall asleep after like the first monologue and Tina is
3:46
always like, Man, did you did you see what he said? I said,
3:48
Well, no. That's a roll of dice and look at anyway. This was a
3:53
really, really good interview with Katie bow de and he is the
3:58
leader of the Forum for Democracy party in the
4:01
Netherlands, one of the biggest but very much in line with
4:05
cheers builders, very much in line with I guess it will go
4:09
back to pin for town who was assassinated in in early 2000s,
4:13
who was on track to win and become the biggest political
4:16
parties party did. Of course, he wasn't Prime Minister because he
4:19
was dead, killed by a nutjob animal activist who now is
4:23
actually out roaming around free and you kill somebody in Holland
4:27
you do save some time you get out. And he really explicitly
4:33
explained exactly what's going
4:36
on what happened to the pretty girl that said she was going to
4:38
be talking now who
4:39
cares about the pretty girl let's get there pretty boy. He's
4:42
not he's probably late 30s, early 40s Very young. he you
4:47
know he has one of these images that can easily be despised in
4:51
the Netherlands because he comes across as what they would call
4:54
studenti coasts or like a like a like on Just like a Bernie bro
5:01
in college you know what I mean? Except yet he was great suit he
5:04
has the right shoes his office as Chesterfield furniture. Are
5:08
you getting the picture? Yeah. So you know a lot of people
5:12
like oh, that's just give us a Bernie bro but
5:15
well give a better example I don't have a better example, but
5:18
not of
5:19
a Bernie Bros. No, no, no, but I'm camped as the pants sagging
5:24
though oh no, no, no, no, he's no no, no, that was a wrong one.
5:29
Anyway, definitely more Trump than anything else, let's just
5:33
put it that way so universally hated by the establishment but
5:36
of course, a lot of people in the Netherlands vote for him and
5:39
for the party and they like him a lot. So here he is explaining
5:46
the grand scheme of why this is taking place. And why the
5:49
Netherlands How
5:51
is it possible that in an age where everybody's talking about
5:54
possibility of food shortages of insecure supply chains, the
6:00
Dutch government is pursuing this policy which will which
6:03
will lead to even even more dependency on international
6:07
supply chains and thus, uncertainty for the Dutch
6:11
consumers. The answer is that they, the people governing this
6:17
country are following the scripts written by the EU to
6:21
realize what they call a great reset. They want to make us more
6:26
dependent on international supply chains. They want to
6:30
weaken Dutch sovereignty and autonomy. And also, they want to
6:35
continue mass emigration into the Netherlands. And if you're
6:39
going to bring more people to the Netherlands and a very small
6:42
and densely populated country, you're going to need to take the
6:46
land from the farmers and put houses there. That's the agenda
6:50
to turn the Netherlands into a giant city without its own means
6:55
of production, without its autonomy in terms of
6:59
sovereignty, but also in terms of food production, and to make
7:02
people dependent on the international rulers, the
7:06
globalists who are trying to take over.
7:09
Now he didn't mention it specifically, but this is part
7:11
of the tri city project, which includes Rotterdam and Amsterdam
7:16
and Brussels. And all the way up north, in Holland thronging it
7:20
and they've already mapped it out mapped out the highways
7:23
mapped out the the bullet trains, and all of the
7:26
Netherlands will be this massive city that will where people will
7:31
just live and exist and do whatever the bedroom community
7:34
Yes, yeah, with no with nothing else. And so all of the food,
7:39
well, we know where it's going to come, it's not actually going
7:41
to come from outside or
7:42
right size. And think about the advantages. By the way. I mean,
7:45
I'm in on this regrouping. I love it, I love it, you got the
7:50
you got this giant suburban area, this is just a massive
7:55
bedroom communities monstrous. And and if you really need to
7:59
control the people who just opened up that big dam that was
8:02
built and flush them out, off slide deck,
8:06
just shut up from the flood you. So this so that what they're
8:13
using as the lever the politicians in the Netherlands
8:18
is something that date back dates back to the 2000 a project
8:23
part of the Sustainable Development Goals, of course,
8:26
which is all the agenda 21, which is now agenda 2030. And he
8:32
gives that a little little attention here,
8:34
I'll give you a very quick update on the whole nitrogen and
8:37
how it came to pass. Because
8:38
this is the nitrogen issue. This is why the farmers have to leave
8:42
because of the nitrogen in the soil because of their animals,
8:47
the 1990s
8:48
the European Union introduced the not too raw. So that's
8:52
nature 2000 guidelines. And that means that certain areas in
8:57
Europe were picked for the preservation of certain forms of
9:04
vegetation. And as it happens, the Netherlands was picked to
9:09
protect moss and Glover and some other form of hay and other form
9:15
of vegetation that do well in relatively poor surfaces where
9:21
where there's not too many things for plants to eat and,
9:25
and so nitrogen in itself, more nitrogen oxides in the
9:32
Netherlands would not be a problem for nature. It would be
9:35
a problem for maintaining the specific vegetation goals that
9:40
were set in the natura 2000 guidelines. And the politicians
9:46
here are unwilling to do the most simple thing that any one
9:50
protecting the Dutch national interests will do which is write
9:53
a letter to the EU. Hello EU. We are no longer going to stupid
9:59
guideline If there's enough clover and most elsewhere in
10:03
Europe, we are going to protect our farmers. And we're going to
10:06
have more trees and other forms of vegetation, which would be a
10:10
consequence of a bit higher level of nitrogen oxide. That
10:14
would be the logical thing to do. They're not doing that
10:17
they're sticking to these bureaucratic rules that 20 years
10:21
ago, someone said that the Netherlands had to maintain a
10:25
certain percentage of malls, and clover and hay. And indeed, the
10:30
real agenda behind that is that they want to have a stick to
10:35
beat the farmers with
10:38
I think they could use the same thing. Hey, we're gonna open the
10:40
dikes if you could farmers don't piss off. A lot easier.
10:45
Think about it the trick? Yes. I'm just reminded as you say
10:51
this, this is kind of a a mirror image of what they did it. Just
10:56
this idea is something that I have some thoughts on this
10:59
because I had a discussion with JC who's friends with the of his
11:05
one of his best friends as the amongst the ruling elite of Sri
11:09
Lanka.
11:10
Oh, goodness, yeah. Lots of talk about there too.
11:13
So this mimicking it because they were did farmers have been
11:17
screwed over by the globalists?
11:19
In fact, I'll just move on that for a second. Where was it? This
11:26
is completely based on the green agenda. Here it is. Sri Lanka
11:30
has a near perfect ESG score 98 which is higher than two which
11:35
is higher than Sweden, the highest in the world, which is
11:38
higher than Sweden. 96. Now the United States only 51 We saw UK.
11:44
Now of course, there are other things behind there's a lot of
11:47
stuff going on the 2019 bombing that hurt tourism. But the
11:52
biggest main problem from this article that's in the show notes
11:55
causing Sri Lanka's fall was its ban on chemical fertilizers,
11:59
nitrogen anybody in April of 2021, so only a year ago, over
12:05
90% of Sri Lanka's farmers had use chemical fertilizers and
12:08
after the ban 85% experienced crop losses after the fertilizer
12:12
ban, rice production fell 20% prices skyrocketed 50%. In just
12:17
six months, Sri Lanka had to import $450 million worth of
12:21
rice despite having been self sufficient in grain just months
12:24
earlier, the price of carrots and tomatoes rose five fold. T
12:29
the nation's main export also suffered thereby undermining the
12:33
nation's foreign currency and ability to purchase products
12:35
from abroad. That's called getting screwed.
12:41
Yeah, what's left out of all these stories, all of them is
12:45
the fact that the United States has been angling to turn
12:48
SriLanka into a military base. Oh, interesting. All this and
12:54
they're not necessarily going for it. But the Chinese Chinese
12:56
are doing what they can to keep this from happening. And it's
12:59
because we can't seem to get a bass in India, they won't allow
13:03
it right. And the Pakistanis just can't do I mean, they're
13:07
there, they're too close to China, and the Chinese would do
13:09
it, but they know this would not be your best interest,
13:13
you're gonna have this little a square meter over here. So of
13:17
course, there's some other stuff going on in the background in
13:21
the Netherlands of all of this,
13:22
it's not just to facilitate the continuous immigration. There's
13:26
also a perhaps spiritual or deeper thing that is looming
13:30
behind this, which is that farmers, and in general, people
13:35
living on the land and of the land, and with the land, they
13:39
have a strong connection to the history. They're proud of their
13:44
often family companies who have that have been in the family for
13:47
for several generations. And so these are not post modern, post
13:53
historical, post national people, their proud family,
13:59
people who have their own business, who live their own
14:02
land, who have a connection to the history into the nature of
14:05
this country. And so they form direct threats to the globalists
14:11
post territorial post identitarian agenda. The real
14:16
point here is the great reset mass migration, trench national
14:20
governance. And that's why people have to become atomized,
14:26
they have to lose their connection to the land, and
14:28
that's why they're hitting on the farmers.
14:31
Sound familiar? Anybody? Filling your country name here? And
14:36
that's totally what's happening in the United States.
14:39
Tell me where you're gonna get pod bugs.
14:42
It's we're so close to that. And also, that's the only way we can
14:46
really have the continuous stream of migrants keep coming
14:49
into the country.
14:50
It's not a stated goal in terms of part of the same government
14:55
agenda. They're, they're doing this as a as if it's isolated
15:00
phenomenon. But it is a stated purpose of state the goal of
15:05
this government to continue mass migration. And also, our current
15:09
Minister of Housing has been with a camera around the country
15:16
pointing at farmlands and saying, This is where we're
15:19
going to put people in the future. So if you put one on one
15:22
together, not rude, it's very obvious that this is part of the
15:26
agenda. But it's not that they would formally say we're now
15:29
expropriating the farmers in order to buy housing, they're
15:32
smart enough not to say it like that that loud. But anyone who
15:35
was clever and put boots on the ground connects the dots will
15:39
realize that this is the this is this is the plan.
15:43
Yeah, yeah. So Minister of Housing is just walking on AC
15:47
that farm over there, houses, houses, is pretty brazen.
15:53
Now this kind of what happened in Santa Clara Valley here in
15:56
California. dutil. Santa Clara Valley was probably one of the
15:59
richest farmland areas and actually where I was raised was
16:02
pretty as almost as good and part of Alameda County, Niles in
16:06
particular, where they grew up being cherries, which there's
16:09
not a cherry tree left in the area. But Santa Clara Valley was
16:13
just a breadbasket. And now it's what all houses and tech
16:18
companies
16:19
and porn studios are. Different Valley.
16:24
Does San Fernando Valley, different Valley. And I think
16:28
that was probably an agricultural area too. It became
16:32
a bedroom community. But we've got a lot of land here now like
16:35
a Holland right?
16:36
No, exactly. Well, and of course, this final clip,
16:41
by the way, the Japanese have this sort of pressure on them to
16:44
but they resist it. They like you can't even import rice to
16:48
Japan. Yeah, I mean, we grow a lot of rice in California. We in
16:52
fact, we grow some of the psyche rice that they used to make Saki
16:56
the Japanese psyche rice in it. The Japanese will not accept it.
16:59
They have to grow their own. Oh, really? Yeah. They've just
17:02
written No, you can't. No, in fact, if we make Saki here and
17:04
we make some some psyche, manufacturing that goes on in
17:07
the United States is world class. Forget it. You can't get
17:11
it into Japan. Hey, can
17:13
I ask you a question? Is this the official pronunciation Saki?
17:16
So I pronounced it? Okay, well, I
17:18
just want to know, because I've
17:19
always said, Okay, it's also the same as the pronunciation for
17:24
the same as the as the salmon. When you eat sushi, the psyche
17:30
refers to it, there's a reason for being called that, and I
17:34
will not discuss it now. Continue, please.
17:36
Jen Psaki. All right, I'm not going to discuss it now, as must
17:40
be something very extraordinary. No,
17:42
it's gonna be lengthy and it's off topic. All right.
17:45
final clip from Bo de here. He unfortunately, he agrees with me
17:50
that this probably will just end in the typical Dutch
17:53
capitulation. If
17:55
they set up a strike a general strike, where they won't deliver
18:00
us any fish anymore. They won't deliver us any meat anymore, and
18:04
you milk anymore. They won't sell their cheeses to
18:06
supermarkets anymore. If they genuinely say, Okay, this is
18:10
enough, stop, this is our existential battle. Then in
18:14
about two or three days, you're going to see it into
18:18
supermarkets, and people are going to be like, I'm hungry,
18:21
where's my food coming from. But this can only work if the
18:25
farmers and the fishermen and all the people and perhaps even
18:27
internationally, they really form a coalition and stick to
18:31
it. And we would support it. But I'm afraid that what will happen
18:38
is more like aggressive demonstrations, and then the
18:42
public opinion will turn against them. And that government will
18:46
just top up its offers and give them a little bit more money.
18:49
And some people will say and they will break the unity of the
18:52
protesters and some people will say well, I'll take I'll take my
18:55
share, and I'll start something else or I'll send my kids to
18:59
college or whatever. So I'm pretty pessimistic, I'm pretty,
19:03
pretty afraid that they will, on the one hand, lose the public
19:07
support by demonstrating to roughly instead of simply not
19:11
delivering any food anymore going on strike. And secondly,
19:14
that many of them will choose their short term self interest
19:18
rather than the long term interest of the nation as
19:20
a whole. You probably true. They're so beaten down. Do we
19:30
need to revisit Sri Lanka?
19:32
No, I think it just wanted to mention the US base and the fact
19:35
that the Sri Lankans are resisting that it says the
19:39
Chinese are helping him. Sri Lanka part his Belt and Road
19:43
it's amazing that none of this none of this gets discussed in
19:47
the M five M here. No instant instead. Here's a 23 second
19:51
report this this is the derivative we get that's called
19:54
news CBS
19:55
massive protests broke out at the homes of the President and
19:58
the Prime Minister of Trade Bunker, a mob stormed the
20:01
president's home breaking through security to enter the
20:04
building. Later some took a celebration to the properties
20:07
private pool. The Prime Minister's home, was also mobbed
20:10
and then lit on fire. The protests come amid the country's
20:13
financial crisis, both the President and Prime Minister
20:17
have now agreed to resign
20:19
nothing about food, nothing about that. He
20:22
mentioned the fact that they forced him it is green. You
20:26
know, these farmers and by the way that farms in Sri Lanka are
20:29
all there's millions of them, and they're small. Yeah. And
20:33
nobody gives a shit about what anyone's telling them to do,
20:35
because they've been doing something traditionally forever.
20:38
And so then they tell them, they can't use, you know, basic
20:42
fertilizers that they've been dependent on for decades exact
20:46
now. Instead, we get can't grow anything. They can't give a good
20:49
they get 20% of their normal crop.
20:52
It's not. It's not coincidence that you're not getting this
20:55
information. No, instead, oh, everyone's doing backflips in
20:58
the President's pool. Let's show a video of that.
21:02
Yeah, you're right. There's no coup. It's not a coincidence
21:05
that they won't tell you that this. These policies, these
21:08
green and the green bowl crap. Yeah. It's not working. Not only
21:13
not working, it's kind of working. But then again, maybe
21:16
it is working. It's working to to achieve some other end. Oh,
21:21
and then Oh, yeah. And Holland. Has a giant bedroom community.
21:26
Yeah, you know that you can flood.
21:28
Man, imagine how easy it'll be to transport the drugs when
21:32
Holland has all of those bullet trains and stuff. Yeah, it's
21:37
pretty efficient now through the port of Rotterdam. But still, I
21:40
just think about how great it will be. And we'll have our
21:42
customers right there in the giant bedroom community. Yeah, I
21:46
mean, it's wasted. And you know, people are gonna all be working
21:49
from home. So they'll have you know, they're, they'll need some
21:52
kind of challenge you have,
21:54
because it's a new right. It's a new human right. It
21:56
is it is it's they voted on it. It's a right. It's a right to
22:00
work from home. And you know what that's going to result in
22:02
Swingers, it's just going to be one big batch of Saudi Arabia
22:06
sex party, all of Holland will be one big Sex House with drugs.
22:11
As to bad, man, I gotta get my daughter out of there. Pretty
22:15
quick. This is bad. Bad, bad, bad. So yeah, a lot of
22:21
interesting things happened. Yeah, since our last show, in
22:25
fact, on on the day itself, and, but really, the one thing I just
22:30
wanted to put a little bit of focus on is what happened in
22:34
Canada Navia with their internet. I mean, we didn't hear
22:37
much about it, because oh, I don't know their internet was
22:40
completely down. I apologize. Rogers. Rogers. Yeah. Now they
22:44
only have I mean, Rogers, what does that at least 50, maybe 70%
22:49
of all internet aggregate Canada Bell is pretty big. Right? But I
22:53
think it's about half. It's big. It's big. And so it was down a
22:59
real total of 24 hours. You know, it came up and down in
23:03
certain parts, but it was it was very serious. So here's a
23:08
Canadian report with the CEO of Rogers. Apologizing, he won't
23:12
use the word but go look online everywhere. The term is it was a
23:16
glitch.
23:17
I apologize. We all here at Rogers apologize for the outage,
23:21
Rogers is saying sorry, following a nationwide outage,
23:26
millions of customers without internet access, cell phone and
23:29
cable services for most of Friday. Contrary to what many
23:33
thought was a cyber attack, one of the country's largest telecom
23:37
networks admits it's responsible for the widespread service
23:40
disruptions,
23:41
we've narrowed the cause to a network system failure. We had a
23:45
maintenance upgrade in our core network, and that caused our
23:50
routers to malfunction.
23:51
The malfunction affected pretty much everything Canadians use on
23:55
a daily basis, emergency services travel and
24:00
they were really really hooped and not able to in this busy
24:04
season coming out of COVID. To make critical
24:07
sales.
24:08
Interactive Services are back after debit and mobile banking
24:12
transactions came to a halt. Rodgers admits it has not fully
24:16
restored services to everyone across the country. As of
24:18
Saturday, it plans to credit customers for two days worth of
24:22
service.
24:23
For some people, that'll be enough but for other people who
24:25
were inconvenienced is a 15 or $20 credit really going to cut
24:29
it.
24:30
This is the second time in the last two years, Rogers has had a
24:33
nationwide outage, and the company's president and CEO
24:37
could not say for certain it will not happen again. I'm
24:40
committed
24:41
to make sure that we are doing everything to ensure the
24:44
resiliency of our network
24:46
without a definitive plan B the ordeal has called into question
24:50
the competition or lack thereof in Canada, with Shaw Bell and
24:55
Rogers dominating the telecommunications playing
24:58
field.
24:58
Competition is a good thing. and it works for everyone and
25:02
impactful way. And I can only think that something like this
25:05
elevates the conversation around internet service providers,
25:10
given the major disruption, there are now calls for a public
25:13
inquiry into the outage and for the CRTC to investigate.
25:18
Yeah, right. Okay. So that's the story. Of course, we have dudes
25:26
named Ben in the BGP space. Our BGP boys named Ben
25:32
border guy, notice that they don't tell us anything. He tells
25:35
what router brand was. Huawei gear is at Ericsson gear, is it?
25:40
Is it Cisco gear, what kind of gear we talking about? Why don't
25:42
you at least give us a hint?
25:44
So here's one of our Border Gateway Protocol boys who deal
25:47
with this very layer of the internet, which is, you know,
25:52
how routes are determined. And he says, Hey, me and the other
25:55
BGP boys have been watching this Canada mess all morning. Rogers
25:58
is as numbers are an advertised now, that's a very serious issue
26:03
when your address space numbering is not being
26:06
advertised. You know, it's basically like having a map of
26:09
roads, but then it's all jumbled up. So you want to, you know,
26:14
Dallas would wind up in Germany. So no, he says no American press
26:18
is talking about that. This is about 27% of Canada's internet
26:22
down my company and unnamed multibillion dollar insurance
26:25
powerhouse where I am a VP of network operations, has about 15
26:29
offices this morning, offline, most of which aren't even on
26:33
Rogers. So this was a little more widespread that just Rogers
26:36
my boss and I, I suggest that's just interlinking could be my
26:40
boss and I speculating someone hit the kill switch and Canada
26:43
911. And most Visa Card Services are down in the Greater Toronto
26:47
Area. So then he comes back later with an update, all of our
26:50
shit is finally back up. Here's the latest interesting tidbit,
26:52
we had four office locations, where we saw this really weird
26:56
stuff happening with DNS after General Service was restored, we
26:59
specifically filter where we send DNS queries. All of that
27:03
traffic appeared to Cloudflare and fortiguard. To be
27:07
intercepted, even though the head and firewalls for those
27:10
sites were clearly online, otherwise pass through normal
27:13
unencrypted traffic. Now, this could just be Rogers getting
27:16
their shit back in order and happen to bid bucket, some
27:19
secure DNS plane DNS and other random HTTPS sessions. Or it
27:25
could have been man in the middle intelligence related to
27:29
Bill C 11. And C 11. Is that Jordan Peterson did a full on
27:35
episode about this. This is the follow up to C 10, which was the
27:39
censorship law. They're talking about censoring, or at least
27:46
monitoring all all live, or all video streams that originate
27:53
from Canada to make sure that you're you adhere to the same
27:58
rules as the M five M as the Canadian Broadcasting
28:02
Corporation. And, and that, you know, this may be stuff to you
28:08
know, to stop stuff to block it. And maybe that's what the router
28:11
upgrades are. And it may not be ready for primetime or something
28:15
like that. I liked that.
28:17
I liked that theory that it's about upgrading to this new bill
28:22
to be
28:23
compliancy 11 compliant compliance. Exactly.
28:26
You got to be compliant. And so in the process, they screwed it
28:30
up or somebody made Oh,
28:33
yeah, they screwed it up big time. Well, if you're doing man
28:35
in the middle, also some
28:37
guys in there that would like to throw a little monkey wrench
28:40
into the works if they can. Oh, goodness, yes. Goodness or not.
28:46
Yeah, no, that would be great. Yeah, no, we need more of that
28:49
we need we need more of people that sabotaging stuff. We got we
28:54
got to move this agenda forward. It's not like the UK they don't
28:58
need they don't need the router man in the middle stuff. You
29:00
know, they they have this new bill at journalists, if they
29:05
leak anything from or they publish anything that was
29:09
leaked. That comes from the government. They can go to jail
29:14
for life.
29:16
Go to jail.
29:19
Whistleblowers journalists and publishers focusing on national
29:22
security related matters may be most at Rick's risk of being
29:25
prosecuted. Any person who copies retains discloses
29:29
distributes or provides access to protected information can and
29:33
will be prosecuted.
29:37
Yeah, that sounds right. Well, this has to disk very important
29:41
as we come up to the Charles administration.
29:46
We Charles Yeah, we have to get everything in mind. Why? Why are
29:49
they waiting so long to announce the Queen is Dead? I mean, it's
29:52
crazy how long she's been gone.
29:54
They don't want charros Hello? Yeah, who's they? Every One well
30:01
the Okay, mi six mi five the public. The journalists people
30:07
who know Charles foreign governments. Good point. There's
30:15
a couple of things I want to do. We do some stuff about RB wood
30:19
yeah they buy a shot gun a handmade shotguns was pretty
30:23
crazy funny. I wanted to get this because we talked about
30:27
this last show and I wanted to get the details back out of the
30:29
way because we talked about Brittney Griner. Who's kinky
30:33
taking up a little too much in the news cycle. But But boot
30:37
this guy boo, do you tea? It's not not Mackey is a Russian is a
30:41
Russian. And if you would recommend people go to max boot
30:45
dot max boot was his first.
30:47
Can I just correct us? We you and I were both talking about
30:50
Max boot in this context on the last show. We were corrected
30:54
obviously was not max boot.
30:56
No, but it's this guy's this guy's name is booton is spelled
30:59
Bo UT. Yeah. And I would recommend you go to the wiki
31:02
page. And well, I'll tell you why. Well, let's play these I
31:05
only have two clips. And this is about boot and grinder and this
31:09
is a this is. And he is Russian, supposedly. And here is the
31:15
grinder boot. One NPR clip
31:18
reports out of Russia indicate that the Kremlin is interested
31:21
in a prisoner swap for Russian arms dealer Victor boot. Can I
31:25
just ask you Is that something as a former ambassador that the
31:29
US should consider?
31:30
Well, when I was the ambassador and I worked at the White House
31:33
even before then, Victor Booth was in jail during that time.
31:36
And we heard many, many offers of trying to get him out.
31:42
Remember, he's not just an arms dealer. But in the Russian
31:44
system. He's probably linked. And now I'm speculating here.
31:48
But if you just look at his background and what he did in
31:51
the past, it sounds like he probably has connections to
31:54
Russian intelligence services. And remember, the President of
31:57
Russia does to Vladimir Putin. So they want to get him out.
32:00
They've wanted to get out for a long, long time. It presents a
32:04
problem for the United States system because he's a real
32:07
criminal.
32:08
Who was the speaking?
32:10
He's one of the ambassadors to one of the Eastern European
32:14
countries during the Obama administration. Okay.
32:18
I hear this boot is also connected to 911 in some odd
32:22
way.
32:22
Well, he seems to be connected to everything. Got it. But the
32:27
thing is, if you read his wiki page, and I recommend people do
32:32
that, I'm trying to bring it up. He, you find out how he got it.
32:37
He's a real criminal. He goes on and he's a real criminal. You
32:41
try to find the crime in there, what the crime is. Now, the old
32:45
FBI entrapment game. Really, the US government arranged to sell
32:51
arms to some douchebags that were on the list of you can't
32:56
sell arms to these people will come after you. And it was all
33:00
government, American government agents that set this guy up and
33:03
pretty much he hears you here pushed the button, and the arms
33:06
deal will go through, you're under arrest. Oh, okay. So the
33:11
Russians got really P owed about this, about this arrest and the
33:17
fact that he's in jail, because they claimed that this is it was
33:20
bullcrap. It was entrapment of the highest order. And even even
33:23
in the wiki page, it explains it, and it and they have never
33:27
gotten anything else on the guy's one of those situations
33:29
where it's like Al Capone, you had to get in with acts of tax
33:32
evasion because you couldn't get goods on him. And this guy seems
33:36
to be that sort of person is extremely talented as a gun or
33:42
arms dealer, but he was also working for the Russians, it
33:44
seems to me, so this He's genuinely a genuine criminal,
33:50
and then Britney's not she's a criminal. She was smuggling dope
33:55
marijuana juice into Russia. That's against their laws. I
34:00
mean, what do you suppose? Well, the Russian lawyer, whether
34:02
useless to me, you know, we can smoke it in California. So I
34:08
guess so this whole report really irked me from that
34:11
perspective. She is a criminal by in the right in the country
34:15
she's in. If you're in a country where you can't get divorced,
34:19
and you get divorced. It's a crime. You're a criminal there
34:23
in Texas if you have more than six Delgado dildos, it's a
34:26
crime. Is that true? Yes. Believe it or not.
34:30
No, I noticed a bunch of stupid laws like that. Yeah, that's the
34:33
one and if they can't be one, and if they can't you, you're in
34:37
trouble. They do too. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know if you
34:39
can want to know but I don't want to find out
34:41
your walk to the car. No.
34:45
So anyway, so I found that annoying that they would put
34:48
this I think this guy's been unjustly arrested and held for a
34:54
decade or more already, and it's like, okay, because it was an
34:58
attractive deal, but Hey, we're back. Hey
35:01
Victor, what are you in for arms dealing to the wrong people?
35:04
What do you in for seven dildos?
35:08
Well, I'll make it I guess I'm Detroit. Okay, so now the so the
35:15
guy I mean, law enforcement has their own kind of behind the
35:18
scenes way of looking at stuff they say, this is bad guy. He's
35:21
a bad guy. We got him in jail. We finally got him in jail and
35:24
it's like corn pop. He's a bad dude. Bad corn. Yeah. Corn pop.
35:30
So it's like so you know, we got him in jail, but it was like
35:34
trickery and you know, underhanded, you know, illegal
35:39
illegal methodology, which is that you makes you a crook. But
35:42
okay, fine. And Brittany's foot she's jealous, you poor girl.
35:46
But, and then play part two of this in a second. I just have
35:51
another complaint. You start listening to his reports.
35:56
There's now she's got with some lawyer some representing her
35:59
wife going on about well, she was a white guy or LeBron James.
36:04
She'd be out by now. And I'm thinking what you do notice the
36:08
kind of privilege she has. They don't miss an effective door to
36:12
white guys that are trying to also get out of Russia who got
36:16
arrested for one reason or another very similarly. You
36:20
know, they kind of tell you this arrest these guys for no good
36:23
reason and throw him in jail. They're not getting out. Don't
36:26
get any attention. She has basketball player privilege.
36:30
That is above and beyond all this other bowl crass called BS.
36:34
Luckily, VPP
36:36
There you
36:37
go. Let's play the second half.
36:38
He's a real criminal, and the Department of Justice convicted
36:42
him and he's in jail for a good reason. Brittney Griner is not a
36:45
real criminal. And so they feel very uneasy about doing those
36:49
kinds of swaps. That said, we've done it before. Just earlier
36:54
this year, the Biden administration traded
36:57
Constantine Yara Shenko and other Russian prisoner convicted
37:01
a criminal for Trevor Reid. And back in 2010. When I was in the
37:05
government, I was working at the White House at the time, we
37:08
swapped spies, a dozen of them that we picked up here in the
37:11
United States in return for for Russians, that we wanted to get
37:15
out of Russian prison. So there is a precedent for these things
37:18
to happen, would
37:19
freeing boot actively hurt American national security?
37:24
That's a tough call. I can imagine my colleagues in the
37:26
Biden administration struggling with that and having differences
37:30
of opinion. My personal view is it's a trade worth taking. I
37:35
would add others by the way, not just Reiner. Paul Whelan is
37:40
unjustly being held. Mark Fogle is another American convicted
37:44
for 14 years in prison and Russia for the same. alleged
37:48
crime is Brittney Griner. So I would pursue a swap to get all
37:52
those Americans out. But I think it's worth the trade. Yes, I
37:55
would take the deal. I want to talk
37:57
a little bit about the US response so far over the last
37:59
six months. It feels like the past few days, there has been a
38:02
much more organized push from people in Brittany grinders
38:06
orbit to get the US government to take action. Even though she
38:09
was detained in February. The US did not declare Greiner
38:12
wrongfully detained until May. Why, in your view, hasn't there
38:18
been more urgency from the US government on responding to
38:22
this?
38:23
You know, I don't want to presume that that is true. It
38:26
feels that way. Of course, to those that have loved ones in
38:29
jail.
38:30
Oh, man. Okay. First of all, the whole thing is just kind of
38:35
funny against the backdrop of the United States incarceration
38:38
system where we have 1.5 million black men in jail for drugs.
38:45
Right, this is put that there. Second, you're right, this is
38:48
trending. It's annoying. It's too much. Remember, I got the
38:52
call from botanic not the call, but I got an email like, oh,
38:55
this we have to do a trade. So this is something's up and and
38:59
it's either this is the out. This is how we, we settle
39:03
things. And Ukraine's like, okay, you know, we're gonna
39:06
settle things, and we're gonna do a swap, and we're all going
39:08
to be friends kind of, or it's too embarrassed Biden, and it's
39:13
coming from the State Department.
39:17
Which is what I say, you know, hi. My thinking on this would be
39:21
it would be the embarrassed by it, because I and of the opinion
39:25
that they've been trying to get Biden, I agree, especially since
39:30
he announced that he's gonna run for reelection. And this is
39:34
going to continue until he either dies of old age or, well,
39:42
okay, so now, we had a debate in Japan, and I have it on my
39:49
schedule to call uncle Don, because as although it's known
39:54
that he was in Japan for Akash eight years or so. He's never
39:59
been allowed to write a bout at the agency won't let him it's
40:01
not in his wiki pedia I wonder what was going on in Japan,
40:06
probably stuff with the Bank of Japan. But he may know Ave. Now
40:12
even though he left before avec came into power, and he was of
40:15
course, he still was very active in Asia. So I hope to get some
40:20
kind of low down. But at the same time, first of all, this is
40:24
called an assassination. If you are an ex president and your
40:27
shot, is that not just murdered, killed? Is it and also
40:31
assassination assassination? Okay. Yeah. And is that for
40:35
presidents? Is it also for congressmen it
40:38
could be for secretaries you could say that your Secretary of
40:40
State was assassinated. Anything, anything that's in
40:44
government, generally speaking, an officer so the Supreme Court
40:48
Justice a word you can say? No, but I think it has political.
40:53
Yes. Assassination always has political implications.
40:56
So is this a message to Trump saying, Hey, you can be out
40:59
there endorsing people but we can get to you anytime.
41:04
Could be or by origin is just some random Rando nutcase? I
41:09
don't think so. Who was well, I mean,
41:14
obviously, obviously, at some point, you're a Rando nutcase.
41:17
If you do this, yes. But was there a motivation? Do you have
41:20
anything what his
41:21
motivation was supposedly his mother was invested and went
41:28
completely bankrupt, investing in some ARB, a scam, religious
41:32
scam that he had done and nobody can identify what this is? Yes,
41:36
that's what the
41:37
it's the Unification Church.
41:41
In the UK, yeah,
41:42
this is interesting. The Unification Church has links to
41:45
the Moonies. I only got this
41:48
morning. These were the Unification Church. Oh, well,
41:50
there you
41:50
go. So it's the same thing. And yeah, so the guy was pissed off
41:55
that, that his mom had given away all of her money, I guess
42:00
all the family's money to the Unification Church. And he
42:05
initially wanted to kill the leader of the Union Unification
42:08
Church, but instead he that was too difficult for some reason.
42:11
So he decided to go after eBay because eBay had indeed had been
42:15
doing this.
42:16
I mean, history and based church should probably be a lot more
42:19
difficult as well. His
42:20
obvious connection to the Unification Church goes back to
42:23
his grandfather. The whole the whole family was in this thing
42:26
and I don't know anything about it. I don't know much about the
42:29
Moonies you might be able to fill us in all I know is that
42:33
whenever
42:34
it called, it was called by our standards, generally speaking,
42:37
it's it's, it was run by the Sun Young Moon guy who was they
42:41
named it after him. I mean, during its derisively called the
42:45
Moonies. And he it was a religion that was is very
42:51
similar, if that's why I think the Chinese are so freaked out
42:53
about things like following Gong. Yeah, because these things
42:56
get out of control. And if they're not,
43:00
I remember whenever we were young, and we visit Don and Meg
43:04
and the cousins in DC, because when we when I was very young,
43:07
like six or seven, we lived in, in Maryland. And so we go visit
43:12
them. And then we'd be driving and night. And I remember so
43:16
clearly, my aunt, my aunt and my uncle, kind of almost excited to
43:19
say, look, you can see it the Mooney, the Mooney church is
43:22
always lit up at night. You can see it for miles. It's the
43:25
brightest thing in all of DC. And it was kind of like, I don't
43:29
know, because of course, I paid no attention to any. I didn't
43:33
understand any significance of it. But it was kind of like,
43:36
yeah, there's that thing that's in the midst of all the stuff
43:39
we're doing. If that makes any sense.
43:44
Now, I said, I don't know what to do with that story, but it's
43:48
a good story.
43:50
That's like most of our story. You can't do anything with the
43:56
good story.
43:58
Good story. I thought that I got some clips, we can play it. I
44:02
don't know. We're gonna get anything out of it. From that
44:04
perspective, especially if you're gonna think it was some
44:06
sort of a grand conspiracy or messaging, but let's go with Avi
44:09
dead NTD. This is a bit the basis for the next two to
44:13
eclipse
44:13
pens former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe A is dead after a
44:17
gunman opened fire from behind him during his speech. Japan's
44:20
NHK television reports that he was assassinated while on the
44:23
campaign trail. The 67 year old former prime minister was
44:27
delivering his speech for a candidate's election campaign at
44:30
around 11:30am. Two shots rang out shortly after he began his
44:34
speech in the western Japanese city of Nara. He was airlifted
44:38
to a hospital and later pronounced dead five and a half
44:41
hours after being shot. The professor in charge of Emergency
44:44
Medicine at the hospital says Ave bled to death from deep
44:47
wounds to the heart and the right side of his neck. Avi was
44:51
the country's longest serving Prime Minister, the shooter was
44:54
arrested and identified as 41 year old Tetsuya yamagami He was
44:59
cited by NIH Hey as telling police he was dissatisfied with
45:02
Abby and wanted him dead. Video from the scene shows what looks
45:06
like a sawed off shotgun lying on the ground near the alleged
45:09
shooter as he is being restrained. World leaders
45:12
offered condolences via Twitter.
45:15
Oh, it's the way you do it via Twitter.
45:17
I you know, I thought that kicker at the end was that was a
45:20
key. Yeah, they offer condolences by Twitter. Kindness
45:24
is dead are so sad. So sad. Well, I tweeted about it. Check
45:32
the box. Now, here's some kind of insight from NPR maybe, or
45:37
maybe not to try and explain some things about abi. And this
45:41
is when developed ABI Nam makes and all the rest of the which
45:45
they're trying to. And he's the Trumpian. Like, again, it's
45:48
another Trump thing and may relate to it. This is
45:52
great. But Trump has this great picture which I caught on
45:56
Twitter, of course. Do you remember at the the big summit,
45:59
I think was the climate change? What was it like climate change
46:02
or whatever the hell it was? Oh, G seven or g 20. And there's
46:05
this picture of Trump sitting down and then the other side of
46:07
the table. It's Merkel, you know, leaning over with their
46:10
arms, you know, on the table, and it's Trudeau and all these
46:13
people are looking at him and he's just there with his arms
46:16
folded, going. Yeah, whatever. Yeah, I remember that picture is
46:20
standing next to him is on eBay with the exact same arms
46:24
crossed. Yeah, whatever. I never noticed that before.
46:28
Well, I didn't notice it either. So I have to go back and look at
46:31
that picture. Okay, let's go. Part one. I'd like to
46:34
also ask, I'm sorry, yeah. Oops, wrong one.
46:38
Pot one
46:39
better understand our base political legacy. I'm joined by
46:42
Jeff Kingston. He's a professor of history and Asian Studies at
46:46
Temple University's campus in Tokyo. Professor Kingston,
46:49
welcome to All Things Considered. Hello. As I
46:52
mentioned, ob a really reshaped
46:57
at least the guy got the message. Hey, listen, you know
46:59
we're here on NPR. So we we greet you you have to either do
47:02
a little sexy thing or you know, say like, hello, hi. Hey, how
47:06
you doing? And he did his best
47:07
episode in Tokyo. Professor Kingston. Welcome to All Things
47:11
Considered.
47:11
Hello. Hello,
47:13
as I mentioned are a really reshaped Japan's economy during
47:17
his time in office so much that the term Ave nomics is often
47:21
used to describe the economic changes in Japan under his
47:24
policies. Can you describe exactly what that means? What
47:27
were Abenomics? And how were his efforts kind of received by his
47:32
constituents?
47:33
Well, it's really interesting. I mean, certainly Abenomics made
47:36
its way into the global lexicon. But I have to say that the the
47:41
general consensus now is that Avi nomics, pretty much fizzled
47:47
out in the current prime minister last autumn when he was
47:51
running to become the leader of the LDP, he was quite critical
47:56
of Abenomics. And he was asserting that it actually
48:01
accentuated disparities in society, and didn't provide a
48:05
solid foundation for sustainable growth. And many people have
48:10
dismissed it as welfare for the wealthy.
48:12
Do you have any examples of that of policies that he implemented
48:15
that now are kind of considered just things that ended up
48:18
helping the rich?
48:20
Well, I think there's a perception that Ave nomics was
48:23
geared towards pumping up the stock market, have a pressure
48:27
the National Pension System to invest more in stocks, the Bank
48:32
of Japan made massive purchases of ETFs, exchange traded funds.
48:38
And so I'll be nomics would seem to game the system in favor of
48:42
people who own stocks, so not many Japanese own stocks. And so
48:48
the people who tended to benefit most from those efforts to boost
48:53
the stock market would be wealthy investors and hedge fund
48:58
investors.
49:00
You know, I watched the short documentary about the Bank of
49:04
Japan the other day. So after World War Two, the bankers came
49:10
in and set up the Bank of Japan and then go through a long a
49:14
long history of stuff at a certain point. We remember how
49:18
Japan was just booming and it's like, they were coming over
49:21
here. They were buying CBS and Columbia. And, you know, Sony
49:25
was huge. And you know,
49:27
that was in the 80s in the 80s. Yeah.
49:30
And then,
49:31
in fact, in fact, there was a number of books that came out
49:35
Iran 1985 And this all course, collapsed in the late 80s. But
49:41
this this dis economic demit Japanese miracle, and my
49:46
favorite book was I wish I could remember the title of it, but it
49:48
was written by one of the is written by kind of a friend of
49:52
mine who's and he wrote a book at the very peak of this whole
49:56
thing and he wasn't alone. And everybody was saying it you You
50:00
probably don't remember you do remember this year, we should do
50:03
everything the way the Japanese Yes.
50:06
Let me explain this. So in this documentary, they show that what
50:10
was really happening is the Bank of Japan was forcing all of the
50:15
banks that were connected through Skype, the window advice
50:18
or something, to pump all kinds of money into loans for real
50:23
estate, and they were telling him what their quotas were. And
50:26
so to certain points, like we didn't No one knows no one left
50:29
to buy a house, then just give it away almost for free. So you
50:31
had people on very median salaries with second and third
50:36
homes. But what we saw in the US, I'll pick it up where you
50:39
just left off, is you saw Silicon Valley guys, you know,
50:43
like Larry Ellison, oh, I have to get into the ancient art of
50:46
Japanese and get my katana because these guys they have the
50:51
fantastic management style. Yet shadow management teams inside
50:56
the US Corporation over like, we have to all the Japanese and all
51:00
it was was free money into real estate.
51:03
It was another another story in that regardless, I was actually
51:08
talking to John Doerr one time, you know 86 He was bitching and
51:13
he was always complaining. He is bitching and moaning about how
51:17
the Japanese are killing us because and the reason is
51:20
because our banks weren't lower interest rates to one rate down
51:26
to why
51:26
he wasn't wrong. He wasn't wrong. That's exactly what was
51:30
going on.
51:30
He's wrong. But then did the thing was that they weren't so
51:34
happy they were dummies are mad happy. The Japanese they bought
51:39
up half of Hawaii. Yeah. And they were and they were cleaning
51:43
up on Hawaii until the until it all popped collapse. Well, no
51:47
before the pop in fact, what happened was when the 747 Stop
51:52
landing on his trip to Japan because the Japanese are happy
51:55
owning property in Hawaii because they could just pick up
51:58
a flight to Japan easily because all the jets to to Hawaii from
52:02
the United States would stop and write on a lulu but then they
52:06
just started skipping Honolulu because they had to the longer
52:10
range rides was Jeff Oh, Andrew picked up the long range 747 The
52:15
rest of them straight to Japan without having to stop. And that
52:19
was the end of the property boom there. And so they lost their
52:22
asses in the best one was when they bought Rockefeller Center.
52:26
Oh, I remember that. I was in New York at the time. It was
52:29
like what
52:31
you had the Japanese are gonna buy everything that was the big
52:33
fear. Japanese bought Rockefeller Center. And it was
52:37
such a turkey of a operation that it was losing so much
52:42
money. And it continued to lose so much money that the Japanese
52:46
never sold it after they bought it. They walked from it. Here
52:51
you go. I'm just leaving it at the curb it here is yours.
52:55
I remember in the in the late 70s early now even early 80s in
53:00
the Netherlands, Japanese tourists man everywhere and it's
53:04
just clickety click and it was just buses and buses and buses
53:07
for them. And everybody was scamming him. Oh, I'll take a
53:09
picture of you and your family but that'll cost you 50
53:11
guilders. You know, I was like, oh, okay, that's tradition here.
53:14
Okay, hi. I remember they come over to visit and they do these
53:17
trade visits. I remember we had think new ideas and they come in
53:21
and that first set you were there was some like pre like a
53:26
forward operating team would come in okay. They you know, and
53:30
how about you know, Pucci song whoever is going to come in the
53:34
drill, you know, Grand Poobah director of this company. And
53:37
here's how you accept his business card and don't put it
53:40
in your back pocket. That's like putting on your and we
53:43
all had all of our business cards that Japanese Japanese
53:45
letters Yes, still.
53:47
Yes. And they would always come with gifts. Gifts. Oh, yeah. And
53:52
then you see like a shit healer and we have any gifts for you.
53:55
Here's a t shirt. We
53:56
got a hoodie. You had to have a hoodie, big gifts that the
53:59
airports have special shops for people traveling to and from
54:03
Japan. That were the gifts that you'd give somebody you're
54:06
visiting and some of the gifts I remember getting couple. There
54:09
were just these submerge extremely lame. Yeah, but you
54:12
see this airport gift?
54:17
Tax free shopping. It comes in a yellow bag. Yeah. So yet again,
54:22
another great story that you can't do much with but hey, you
54:26
come for the news. You stick with the stories people
54:29
don't anyway. Yeah.
54:32
Talk to this. Yeah. I'd like to also ask about sorry. Yeah,
54:36
yeah. Onward.
54:37
Okay.
54:37
I'd like to also ask about hobbies role with Japan's
54:40
military. I know that in 2014, his administration reinterpreted
54:45
a world war two era law to expand the country's defense
54:48
capabilities. Can you talk a little bit about how the former
54:51
Prime Minister had an effect on Japan's military?
54:54
Yes, in 2014. He reinterpreted Article Nine of the constant
55:00
tuition that had been written by the Americans. And the idea in
55:04
Article Nine was that Japan was banned from going to war and
55:08
from maintaining any armed forces whatsoever. Now, the
55:12
government has sidestepped that ban by arguing that it could
55:17
maintain defensive forces. And this then pave the way for the
55:22
US Japan defense guidelines in 2015, which greatly expanded
55:28
what Japan is committed to do militarily in support of the
55:32
United States, anywhere in the world. And then later that same
55:36
year, he passed legislation of the collective self defense
55:41
legislation that provided a legal basis for Japan to
55:46
actually live up to those commitments. But that
55:49
legislation was deeply unpopular, sparked massive
55:54
protests outside the diet. And even today, I'd say the Japanese
55:58
public support for that legislation is lukewarm, because
56:03
the concern here is that somewhere somehow, at the behest
56:07
of Washington, Japan is going to be dragged into some conflict,
56:11
that doesn't really have a lot to do with the defense of Japan.
56:15
And so the pacifist identity that is becoming embedded in the
56:21
Japanese psyche, is challenged by Ave asserting that Japan can
56:27
no longer afford this unilateral pacifism.
56:31
I think that Trump and RB were kind of playing from the same
56:35
let me say playbook when it comes when it came to modern
56:39
monetary theory, changing the minister of the Ministry of
56:43
Finance, and making it more powerful versus the central bank
56:46
and then still, you know, pumping up the stock market. It
56:49
seems like that was very analogous with those two are
56:51
doing
56:52
well, they were doing similar things for sure. Especially when
56:55
it comes to pumping up the stock market.
56:57
Yeah. Which is how you do it.
57:00
So anyway, there's she's dead. That's the end. Yeah, that's de
57:05
wrecker.
57:07
Here's a story I need to follow up on because people tune into
57:09
the no agenda show to get information and understand
57:12
what's happening in their world versus what the M five M is
57:16
telling you.
57:16
American Airlines is paying up for a computer glitch over the
57:20
July 4 weekend. Technical problems removed pilots from
57:23
more than 12,000 flights this month. The airline now says it
57:27
will pay the pilots triple pay to cover those shifts.
57:30
Meanwhile, United Airlines says the flight delays we've been
57:32
seeing this summer won't be ending anytime soon. The airline
57:36
blames staffing shortages and the FAA air traffic control
57:39
system yeah
57:44
of course the your no agenda show has producers all over the
57:47
world in every single vocation you can imagine. From our
57:52
anonymous unnamed airline pilot. I'll get right to the hot news
57:57
contract negotiations are in full tilt at all airlines
58:00
including Federal Express to all did not so not just passenger
58:04
airlines United was quick to put out the first contract and their
58:07
management team was quick to pound their chest saying they
58:10
were ensuring their pilots were taking good care of and by the
58:14
way in this T A as they call it the tentative agreement do not
58:18
one of the big issues was for the United pilots what they
58:20
wanted. No, a Tumi suitcase. This was a negotiating point
58:26
that each one got a to me suitcase. This so they were
58:31
there. Let's get in the cream right as like, Oh, let's see
58:34
what we can get.
58:36
So they asked him for stuff like the suitcase. Well, United drag
58:40
around that use Yeah, yeah.
58:41
So United pilots, they also stayed home. They got COVID
58:45
money from the government. You know, I was like so in United's
58:49
world they were okay. But then American came out with a
58:52
contract that made United look foolish. Because of course
58:58
America was like, I want to kind of give them too many suitcases.
59:00
So the United pilots union withdrew their their tentative
59:04
agreement. That said they were going back to the negotiating
59:06
table probably take the tomee Suitcase off. Delta is idling on
59:10
the sidelines waiting to see what the other to get, then, of
59:13
course, they will beat them both. Well, contract
59:15
negotiations are in play pilots are required by the railroad
59:18
Labor Act to fly their awarded trips. So they're doing just
59:21
that nothing more than a lot of trips remain open with no pilots
59:25
to fly them. So of course, the glitch last week, in the trade
59:29
trip system from American Airlines, this is this is the
59:31
big news pilots can actually trade trips with another with
59:34
one another with the approval of scheduling. Last week, something
59:39
happened and all of the trips that were proffered proffered up
59:43
were essentially deleted from the pilot schedule. This means
59:46
the company had to buy the trip back from each pilot,
59:49
essentially paying them to stay home. So this sounds like
59:52
sabotage to me.
59:54
Just sounds a sabotage to me because that's software that
59:56
that does that was has been in play for a long time. Hate
1:00:00
longtime because the stewardess we're using it because I talked
1:00:03
to I always go back and chat with the stewardess hey girls
1:00:07
and guys a doing and they I was told that this this has been
1:00:12
because I was asking about the
1:00:14
call to flight attendants now John, just let you know yeah,
1:00:16
whatever, whatever. And so
1:00:19
I was told he has this great software they would go on and on
1:00:22
about we could switch with anybody anytime we want it's on
1:00:25
real time and he's, you know, nobody's everyone seems to do
1:00:30
it. Right and it was fabulous. And it was just a matter of time
1:00:35
for the pilots did the same thing. So
1:00:37
American immediately recognized what had happened began placing
1:00:40
the trips back on the pilot schedule. However,
1:00:42
contractually, this is illegal. So the union stepped in and told
1:00:46
the company they could not do this, the company with no choice
1:00:48
offered pilots 200 And in some cases 300% Pay to take the trips
1:00:53
back. If you wonder why why your airline tickets are going up in
1:00:56
price. The Union stance after exhausting negotiation with
1:01:00
American Management seems to be enjoy your paid time off. So now
1:01:07
he says probably what was happening Fourth of July
1:01:10
weekend, although there were some there were cancellations.
1:01:14
It wasn't anywhere near the mayhem that might have been
1:01:17
expected except Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, which was
1:01:20
another disaster. But they don't know celebrate Fourth of July.
1:01:27
He says that he's telling me they don't have Fourth of July
1:01:30
in Amsterdam,
1:01:31
please. You distracted You're distracting me from my story. He
1:01:40
says probably just for these negotiations, they really did
1:01:44
their best. But this will spill over and this will become a
1:01:49
problem. And we're not just talking about American Airlines.
1:01:51
But all airlines were kind of put on notice. Let's do our best
1:01:54
for this weekend. So we'll probably hit within the next he
1:02:00
says within the next five to seven days, it's going to be a
1:02:02
mess because that's when that's when the dominoes start falling
1:02:05
again, because pilots are out of time. There's not enough pilots
1:02:08
getting paid to sit home not coming. It's It's the system is
1:02:12
breaking. Just breaking.
1:02:15
Well, they broke it themselves when they pulled this stunt with
1:02:18
the COVID vaccine.
1:02:19
Well, of course, and we still have, man. So now there's one of
1:02:28
our producers was reading the Federal Register as you do as a
1:02:31
producer. And, you know, everyone is still working on
1:02:35
this COVID Pass on a digital. It's not even called a COVID
1:02:39
pass. It's a digital ID. We saw the European Union parliament.
1:02:43
We saw them vote for it, you know, we don't need it. But we
1:02:47
might as well just still keep it around the UK. Hey, why are you
1:02:51
hiring people for this passport scheme that's going away, you
1:02:55
know, just might be handy just to have it, you know, shut up,
1:02:58
shut up, don't need to ask questions. We have what is the
1:03:05
other one here? The United States, we have still on the
1:03:12
books requirement for proof of COVID 19 vaccination for non
1:03:16
citizen non immigrant air passengers arriving into the
1:03:19
United States from a foreign country. This is why my why my
1:03:22
daughter's long term boyfriend cannot come along and visit. And
1:03:29
so now they want to make that official. And in the Federal
1:03:32
Register, the CDC has said well, we can do this, we can maintain
1:03:35
this. But we need to be compensated for 6500 out of the
1:03:40
exact number 60 68,000 45,825 burden hours per year to be
1:03:50
compensated for in order to do that. And I'm sure it'll get
1:03:54
funded, they'll pay for that. And then we basically have the
1:03:58
same system worldwide, you can't get in without some proof of
1:04:02
vaccination. And and in Canada, they have arrived can which is
1:04:10
the app you have to use. You have to you know, if you if you
1:04:12
want to leave Canada you have to have you have to be vaccinated
1:04:16
if you want to arrive into Canada have to be vaccinated. So
1:04:18
this app is still plaguing everybody. And here is the World
1:04:22
Economic Forum Board member and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia
1:04:27
Freeland, who was asked about the arrive can passport scheme,
1:04:31
why has your government kept the arrive can app in place after
1:04:36
making changes at the border?
1:04:39
You know what, let me start by saying and you know, Canadians
1:04:46
believe in modesty and humility as a national virtue
1:04:49
is that true? Is a natural, bad national Gaucho,
1:04:53
and I think that is a good thing. And certainly I don't
1:04:56
think anyone would argue that it's a problem to have political
1:05:02
leaders who are too modest or too humble, I think people might
1:05:06
have a problem going in the other direction.
1:05:09
But what the hell does that mean? Like you don't want Trump?
1:05:13
Is that what she's saying? You don't want Trump has no idea
1:05:15
what she just said. She's just babbling, babbling idiot.
1:05:19
Do you want to say one thing that Canadians should be quietly
1:05:23
proud of, collectively, all of us together collectively. Now,
1:05:27
that is how we have gotten through COVID. So far, there was
1:05:31
a study published either last week or 10 days ago, that
1:05:36
compared 11, comparable rich, industrialized countries, and
1:05:41
how they did in COVID. and Canada was second from the top
1:05:45
only Japan, which is in a very different environment did better
1:05:49
than us. And to put some numbers behind that if we had had the
1:05:53
same level of mortality in Canada, that they had in the
1:05:57
United States, very, very close to us. 70,000 more Canadians
1:06:03
would have died.
1:06:04
Okay, so this is me from false reporting. Is that what she's
1:06:07
saying? Yep.
1:06:09
70,000 more Canadians would have died. If we did the Canadians
1:06:13
manage everything the way the United States did. Thanks. Think
1:06:17
about that for a minute. Think about that for a minute, we
1:06:19
would have lost 70,000 people, our parents or grandparents,
1:06:24
this is this is this is psychological operations right
1:06:27
here. Think about that is a command Neuro Linguistic
1:06:30
Programming, think about that. Think about it. So your brain
1:06:33
can't help but think about it. Your grandparents, your family,
1:06:36
your dog
1:06:37
house, and more Canadians would have died. Think about that for
1:06:41
a minute, we would have lost 70,000 people, our parents or
1:06:46
grandparents. So I think overall, like yes, the measures
1:06:50
that we all endured during COVID were unpleasant and were
1:06:54
difficult. And I don't know, maybe you want to call it the
1:06:58
COVID recession hangover that we're getting through right now.
1:07:03
But let's not lose sight of the fact that by and large, these
1:07:07
measures worked, and they saved 70,000 people.
1:07:11
I mean, audacity to say it saved 770 1000 people, is it within 30
1:07:17
seconds is bullshit of the highest degree
1:07:20
he arrived, catnap was one of a suite of measures that were part
1:07:26
of this highly effective COVID. Now, the environment today is
1:07:30
different. You know, all of us are here, we're not wearing
1:07:35
masks. We're living in a reopened national economy. And
1:07:42
so as we go, we constantly need to look at which measures are
1:07:47
appropriate and which are not.
1:07:49
There you go. So it's not going to answer the question that
1:07:51
keeping it in place and digital ID it will be a thing. And the
1:07:55
air
1:07:56
is about as far away from the question as you could get, of
1:07:59
course,
1:08:00
and this airport stuff is a part of it. You know, the Canadian
1:08:05
airport. Which one is a Toronto? No. Maybe Ottawa, also the
1:08:10
Netherlands, Amsterdam, they're all part of the known traveler
1:08:13
digital ID KT Di. This is to me, this is problem reaction
1:08:19
solution. It's like hey, it's shoot at the airports. Hey, we
1:08:23
need the digital ID we got the infrastructure all set up so
1:08:25
ease a
1:08:29
bill says Ron COVID I have revealing clip. Okay. Are
1:08:36
revealing clips. Okay, and Osterholm is back.
1:08:39
Yeah. There's new vaccine money coming out, I
1:08:42
guess. Yeah. But he went to a school now is that professor?
1:08:46
Oh, is that news? Is that new? I think it is. I think it is new.
1:08:49
But I got just a three One minute One and one and a half
1:08:52
minutes that went in a minute. I don't know how long they are on
1:08:55
COVID and the new ba five Yeah, baby ba fives catch up. Just
1:09:00
catch up to the scene with a BA five.
1:09:02
Da five. A sub variant of Omicron is now dominant in the
1:09:06
US and it accounts for more than half of all COVID infections.
1:09:10
It's quick rise corresponds with an increase in reinfections and
1:09:14
hospitalizations, and PRs Allison Aubrey joins us now with
1:09:17
more. Hey, Allison.
1:09:18
Hey, hi. Oh, hi here.
1:09:20
Good to have you. Okay, so we're about VA five Lake. Does this
1:09:23
rise mean? We're gonna go into another surge here in the US?
1:09:27
Well, I think we're in the midst of a silent surge of I added
1:09:31
time when most people use rapid tests it's hard to know just how
1:09:35
many people are infected. One indicator Elsa is that
1:09:38
hospitalizations appear to be rising slightly again, and
1:09:42
reinfections are on the rise. According to some data from New
1:09:46
York for instance, some people who were infected with owner con
1:09:49
in December or January are getting it again. Here's Michael
1:09:54
Osterholm. He is expert at the University of Minnesota.
1:09:58
This is really a hyper trend. Schools Oh, hold on a second.
1:10:02
Whoa, what happened to the children's vaccine program that
1:10:10
he's running up in Dallas?
1:10:12
I don't know but this is the third clip
1:10:16
well Oh no, I'm sorry this is no no, I'm sorry that's wrong. I'm
1:10:20
wrong. I'm thinking of somebody get the wrong I got the wrong
1:10:22
guy poster home. He's never been identified as a professional
1:10:26
that way but okay, so it's really a highly transmissible
1:10:30
virus. And if you look right now as ba five is increasing, we're
1:10:33
seeing this exposure now with the level of infections with
1:10:36
this virus is if you have a good elevator ride you very well
1:10:40
could get infected. really struck me as you can see the PSA
1:10:45
already, people get into elevator dealing with one
1:10:49
elevator ride, you could get COVID and die, right? You very
1:10:53
well could get infected.
1:10:55
That's really struck me so this idea that an elevator ride with
1:10:58
an infected person could be enough of an exposure, even for
1:11:02
those of us who've been vaccinated and boosted I mean,
1:11:05
I'm one of those people who got COVID Back in December. So where
1:11:07
does this leave us? What does this mean for the fall? You
1:11:10
think?
1:11:11
Oh, wow. Oh, my goodness. I mean, just one elevator ride.
1:11:15
You could die. I appreciate way appreciate it.
1:11:21
And then she goes on about she just had it in December, and
1:11:24
she's been double booked baths. I'm
1:11:25
one of those people. I'm one of those people who got COVID I
1:11:29
mean, even though I was vaccine double boosted, but you know,
1:11:32
I'm a victim.
1:11:35
Yeah, it gets better. Oh, yay.
1:11:37
Yay, more curveballs, this virus humbles scientists Osterholm
1:11:43
have become it's just hard to predict. But I think what is
1:11:46
clear, according to lots of the infectious disease experts I've
1:11:48
talked to is that even as the sub variants have become even
1:11:52
more transmissible, the bottom line is that the impact of a BA
1:11:56
five surge or whatever variant comes next will not likely be on
1:12:00
the scale of last winter, we will be able to manage better. I
1:12:03
talked to Anna Durbin, a physician at Johns Hopkins about
1:12:06
this. She said we've already seen this the combination of
1:12:09
prior infections vaccinations is protective. She points out
1:12:13
hospitalizations are up but only slightly and there are more
1:12:17
tools to treat people who do get sick.
1:12:19
Most people have some underlying immunity that is helpful in
1:12:23
fighting the virus. We have antivirals, and I think because
1:12:27
of that we're not seeing a rise in deaths and that's very
1:12:30
reassuring. That tells me that the virus even VA five is not so
1:12:35
divergent that it is escaping all arms of the immune system.
1:12:40
By the way, that's total bullshit. But I'll wait until we
1:12:43
play the last clip.
1:12:46
Or the last one talks I tell you, I stole the bullshit what
1:12:48
you were gonna say.
1:12:49
There's a there's a nice preprint still but it will be
1:12:53
for the new Journal and New England Journal of Medicine. I'm
1:12:57
sorry, yeah, British metal medical journal. The Lancet. Not
1:13:02
the lancet BMJ. COVID vaccines more likely to put you in
1:13:07
hospital than keep you out BMJ editors analysis of Pfizer and
1:13:11
moderna trial data finds that's going to be squashed. Wow.
1:13:16
That's why we need to talk about it and have it in the show
1:13:18
notes. So I'm just saying that's bullshit. You just said you're
1:13:22
more likely.
1:13:23
All they say everything they say is bullshit. But here comes the
1:13:26
here comes the Whopper because no one's talking about what
1:13:29
they're going to talk about. It's a little spot of
1:13:31
information that will not get to the mainstream. I don't even
1:13:34
know why they brought it up here. But it when it comes up,
1:13:38
you'll know.
1:13:38
She says there's more children are vaccinated and new boosters
1:13:42
come online to specifically target Omicron, which could
1:13:45
happen around September this will be helpful.
1:13:48
Well about children. It has been what three weeks since very
1:13:52
young children were talking between six months old and five
1:13:55
years old. They've been eligible to get COVID vaccines so have
1:13:58
parents actually been getting their little children vaccinated
1:14:01
the past three weeks.
1:14:02
So far, only about 1% Of the roughly 20 million kids in this
1:14:06
age group have gotten their first shot. Just released first
1:14:11
numbers last night was picking up 267,000 children. My first
1:14:17
reaction to that was wow after hearing from so many parents
1:14:19
were so eager it was quite low. It's
1:14:22
the only parents you heard who were eager one NPR upper hand
1:14:26
selected ladies.
1:14:28
I spoke to Dr. Cameron Webb he's a senior advisor on the White
1:14:31
House COVID response team he says the expectation is that
1:14:34
many parents will ultimately opt for vaccines during well visits
1:14:39
will hurt well visits
1:14:42
yeah well visits Oh goodness, you take your kid and routinely
1:14:46
they do this and all the market when there's just for no good
1:14:50
reason so we could gouge the US government's all the programs
1:14:54
and insurance companies so they can raise their rates as well
1:14:57
visit
1:14:58
will be heard from parent It says that they wanted to get
1:15:01
their kids vaccinated, overwhelmingly, in their
1:15:04
pediatricians offices, and nearly half said they wanted to
1:15:08
do it during a regular scheduled visit. And so you're going to
1:15:11
continue to see a steady stream of parents with kids under five
1:15:14
getting their kids vaccinated in the weeks and months to come.
1:15:17
I don't think so.
1:15:21
While NPR is getting creative like that, all right, I have a
1:15:26
couple of clips to back this up. Because really, I mean, if we
1:15:29
just put it into NPR terms, I mean, this is I mean, it's
1:15:33
crazy. This is so could get bubbly enough it well. That's
1:15:37
true. It's it's so contagious. In elevators. Everyone is
1:15:42
infectious. There's COVID everywhere.
1:15:44
But here's the number I like to use at my place at UCSF.
1:15:47
This is Dr. Bob watcher from UCSF. That's the he's from the
1:15:53
hospital. They're to University of Southern Carolina. So south
1:15:56
of Southern California,
1:15:58
Florida, Florida, Florida, South. Cisco, San Francisco.
1:16:02
Yes,
1:16:02
in San Francisco. We test everybody who's here for
1:16:06
anything. So you come in for a hernia surgery, open heart
1:16:08
surgery, or a colonoscopy, we're going to test you have no
1:16:11
symptoms of COVID. That number, the prop, the test positivity
1:16:16
rate of people who have no symptoms of COVID. At the lowest
1:16:19
point of the pandemic, pre Delta was point 2%. One in 500. People
1:16:22
would test positive today at 7%. One in about 16 people Oh, so
1:16:29
if you are. So you're boarding an airplane with let's say 50
1:16:33
people on it, there's about a 99% chance that somebody on that
1:16:36
airplane has COVID COVID. You know, in a restaurant of 20 or
1:16:40
30 people around you. It's 90 ish percent 90 and 95 You're
1:16:46
eating Cody, there's a lot of COVID around.
1:16:50
And because this variant is more infectious than the last one and
1:16:53
the more infection the one before it, if you're not being
1:16:56
careful, there's a pretty decent chance that you can get it and
1:17:00
and
1:17:01
even if you're vaccinated because you know, you're gonna
1:17:04
get his COVID boosted and but what the vaccines will the new
1:17:07
vaccinations work with IT work where they work, Dr. Bob,
1:17:09
are you optimistic about a booster shot coming in the fall
1:17:13
that might target be a foreign VA five,
1:17:16
I'm optimistic that there will be a booster shot in the fall
1:17:18
that is a combo of the original virus because you're gonna lose
1:17:21
that. And a vaccine booster targeted against some version of
1:17:27
Alumacraft. They're working really hard on on one against BA
1:17:30
four or five because the one they worked on two months ago
1:17:32
against the original Omicron doesn't have as much effect
1:17:35
against BA four or five. Oh, I
1:17:36
hope I'm hopeful that they'll have it I'm hopeful that it will
1:17:40
work better and last longer. Not that hopeful that it's gonna be
1:17:43
magic. And all of a sudden why not? We'll give you immunity
1:17:47
superpowers against VA for five the reason to get it is sort of
1:17:50
the reason why you get a booster today.
1:17:52
Well what doctor is that? Do you think that's in the medical
1:17:55
literature that a certain type of vaccination can give you
1:17:59
superpowers?
1:18:02
Not that hopeful that it's gonna be magic, and all of a sudden
1:18:05
make you give you immunity superpowers against BA four or
1:18:08
five. The reason to get it is sort of the reason why you get a
1:18:11
booster today, I still think people are going to be
1:18:12
vulnerable to infection. But the main reason that you want to be
1:18:16
boosted against the virus that you're likely to be exposed to,
1:18:19
is to prevent severe infection, hospitalization, and death. The
1:18:23
thing I guess I'm most worried about is okay, ba four five is
1:18:26
now coming into our world. Let's figure out a booster against it
1:18:29
by the time we figure it out. It may be that the virus that we're
1:18:32
being exposed to in October November is a new one that
1:18:34
hasn't even doesn't even exist yet.
1:18:36
Oh, it's just a never ending stream. We need more money
1:18:38
pumping in but
1:18:39
she let me think was it that even we even talked about this a
1:18:43
decade ago. There's no vaccine for Corona viruses. Nope. It's
1:18:48
same as the common cold. That's why there's never been a vaccine
1:18:52
for it's a Corona virus for this very reason changed. What's
1:18:55
changed. Nothing's changed viruses. These vaccines don't
1:18:59
work.
1:19:00
Let's go to New York 1010 wins Dr. J. Varma. And you'll hear a
1:19:05
gaffe right at the beginning of this so I might as well get it
1:19:07
out of the way
1:19:07
when you say the the vaccine outsmarts us is it outsmarting
1:19:13
the vaccines, though?
1:19:14
I mean, come on lady, you meant to say is the virus is
1:19:19
outsmarting the vaccine that goes in the pile that goes in
1:19:22
the pile in the gaps
1:19:23
when you say the vaccine outsmarts. Us is it outsmarting
1:19:28
the vaccines, though? I mean, I think a lot of people I know are
1:19:32
saying cheese, should I get the booster or should I get the
1:19:35
sheep in booster? They're afraid that in the fall, we might need
1:19:40
a different kind of vaccine to outsmart the latest variant.
1:19:46
Yes, I mean, basically what you're summarizing is the
1:19:49
strategy that we have left to us as scientists, which is that you
1:19:53
know, first of all, I really want to emphasize something, you
1:19:56
know, getting repeated doses of the vaccine does not cause any
1:19:59
harm. There are many vaccines like the flu vaccine that you
1:20:02
get annually and many others that you need to get boosted
1:20:05
with regularly.
1:20:06
That guy, he'll be sued. He'll be sued for killing people.
1:20:09
I'll tell you this, what he's saying there is untrue. Yeah,
1:20:13
every time you get a flu shot, you're not getting boosted. No,
1:20:17
you're getting a different shot. Yep. So that's just a lie.
1:20:22
No, really. So the problem is that COVID Don't sell no mo. No
1:20:28
one's interested. No one wants to hear it. Now, of course,
1:20:31
people are still incredibly scared. And you know, they're
1:20:36
not going
1:20:36
home. And that woman in that clip at the very beginning, she
1:20:40
was she had a nervous sound. And yes, she was she was and there
1:20:44
are people out there that are literally shaking in their
1:20:47
boots. Yes. Even when they bring it up. Oh my god.
1:20:51
We saw it out here at the Fourth of July parade in
1:20:53
Fredericksburg. You could identify the the Democrats,
1:20:56
clearly they had their little float. And they all had their
1:20:58
masks on.
1:21:00
On the float it Sure. On the float
1:21:03
Yeah. Oh, yeah. Doesn't matter if they want to do that, that's
1:21:10
fine.
1:21:11
But if I'm happy that that's going on, because I don't want
1:21:14
them sneezing on me.
1:21:16
But that's not good enough for television. We have to come up
1:21:20
with new stuff. We are a fear based enter a trauma based
1:21:23
trauma entertainment based society. Nothing plays unless
1:21:27
it's really really cute like a dog on tick tock doing something
1:21:30
cute, or unless it it's free shipping, free shout. So let's
1:21:34
just run through a couple of possibilities that are in the
1:21:37
news.
1:21:38
An extremely rare brain infection has been found in a
1:21:40
Missouri resident. It's caused by what's commonly known as a
1:21:43
brain eating amoeba, and it's almost always deadly. This is
1:21:47
the first confirmed case in the state in 35 years the patient is
1:21:51
in the ICU. Someone can get infected by inhaling
1:21:54
contaminated water. It's often found in warm freshwater like
1:21:58
lakes, rivers and ponds. The Missouri Department of Health is
1:22:02
not reporting where the person was exposed.
1:22:05
Okay, so we've got that we've got the brain eating amoeba.
1:22:08
Always fun for a little little off color report in the news,
1:22:11
but Ghana has reported its first ever cases of the Marburg virus.
1:22:16
Yeah, this is a good one. Marburg virus
1:22:19
that Burgas is is is a version of Ebola. Yeah, it's
1:22:23
a hemorrhagic disease, and you basically poop yourself to
1:22:27
death. You poop out just blood. Blood just ain't guts, and it's
1:22:31
just horrible. And so, of course, we know that Bill Gates
1:22:36
does have a vaccine in the works for Marburg. But I don't think
1:22:40
that's where they're going. It's seen Oh, in the Netherlands,
1:22:43
they come back to this a lot. They come back with the Q fever.
1:22:50
Have you ever heard of UV or that's another? That's a good
1:22:53
one. That's another evergreen?
1:22:54
Yes. It's Coxiella burnetii. I think, I don't know it's a
1:22:59
bacterial disease. So so the Netherlands keeps trying that
1:23:03
one. But clearly, clearly, we're still I mean, it's, it's on the
1:23:08
download. It's only gays people so don't worry about it. It's
1:23:12
just monkeypox, here is Professor Dr. Tedros. I continue
1:23:16
was not a doctor doctor to be
1:23:18
concerned by the scale and spread of the virus. Across the
1:23:22
world. There has now been more than 6000 cases recorded in 58
1:23:27
countries. Testing remains a challenge and it's highly
1:23:32
probable that there are a significant number of cases not
1:23:35
being picked up. Europe is the current epicenter of the
1:23:39
outbreak recording more than 80% of cases globally. In Africa.
1:23:46
Cases are appearing in countries not previously affected and
1:23:50
by the way the music and it's all been edited. This is an
1:23:53
official W H O. promo video
1:23:56
whenever they put a bunch of dramatic music in it. What are
1:23:59
they trying to do?
1:24:01
Let me think What could that be could it be to enhance the
1:24:04
trombone? Yeah to add a little feel to it. I mean, shit, they
1:24:08
it's total stock crap music but they have the right idea.
1:24:11
Okay, so it's not appearing in countries not previously
1:24:14
affected and record numbers are being recorded in places which
1:24:19
have previous experience with monkeypox. My teams are
1:24:23
following the data closely. I plan to reconvene the emergency
1:24:27
committee, so they are updated on the current epidemiology and
1:24:31
evolution of the outbreak and implementation of
1:24:35
countermeasures. I will bring them together during the week of
1:24:39
18th July or sooner if needed, who is working with countries
1:24:44
and vaccine manufacturers to coordinate the sharing of
1:24:47
vaccine which are currently scares and need to be accessible
1:24:52
to the most at risk people with civil society and LGBT iq plus
1:24:58
community especially To break the stigma around the virus and
1:25:04
spread information so people can protect themselves.
1:25:07
Now you hear what he says there to break the stigma around the
1:25:10
protests. They have totally linked this to gay men, or gay
1:25:15
and bisexual men who apparently the ones who get monkeypox only
1:25:18
have sex with men even though they're bisexual. That's what's
1:25:21
going on and it's it's tragic ly get rid of the gays. The gays
1:25:26
are not good. The elves are next. The lesbians are next.
1:25:29
They're nothing but turfs, trans exclusionary radical females.
1:25:33
The world is supposed to be transformative with just trans
1:25:36
people. It's sick, but that's that's clearly what's going on.
1:25:44
So it looks like it. Yeah, for sure.
1:25:46
Meanwhile, 57,000 National Guard reserves have been basically
1:25:51
sent home without pay because they're unvaccinated that's
1:25:54
safe. I think that's, that's about all of oh, I just wanted
1:26:01
to mention that. What's this? What's the face? This guy's
1:26:05
name? Ramesh Sunny. balwani. He was the he was the Theranos
1:26:12
president. I wasn't He also holds a boyfriend. He
1:26:15
is a see. I think he was the CEO, CFO either CFRC he wasn't
1:26:20
the CEO. I think she was he was like, you know, CJ? Yeah,
1:26:24
of course he handle the money. So he's guilty on all 12 fraud
1:26:28
counts. And he could go away for a long time. Just to remind
1:26:34
everybody that FDA approved that, you know, the FDA is good.
1:26:38
You won't see any FDA people going to jail for approving for
1:26:42
approving a totally bogus, bogus system. That was kind of easily
1:26:48
provable when you if you read all the books and have seen all
1:26:51
the Netflix specials. That's the same people who approve this for
1:26:54
your kid. which no one seems to want to take strangely enough.
1:26:58
But But Yahoo News takes the cake with the headline of the
1:27:02
day. The new Ninja COVID variant is the most dangerous one yet.
1:27:10
Ninja John, they're literally Yeah, they have to go to ninja
1:27:16
which does now which implicates Japan by the way. It's kind of
1:27:20
racist.
1:27:22
And if you can't, if you can't totally racist you can't
1:27:25
say Wuhan. And I don't think you can say ninja. That sounds
1:27:28
wrong. And let's go to the Red Book, shall we? Before we take
1:27:35
our break. The red book was interesting this week.
1:27:38
Elon Musk says he's terminating his mega deal to buy Twitter but
1:27:42
the social media companies board says it will see him in court.
1:27:46
ABCs economics correspondent Deirdre Bolton is here with more
1:27:49
Dierdre Where do things stand now?
1:27:51
Well just get ready for a long, painful protracted legal battle
1:27:56
between one of the world's richest men and Twitter's board,
1:27:59
Elon Musk, who runs Tesla and SpaceX sending a letter to the
1:28:03
social media company on Friday saying he's ending his $44
1:28:06
billion plan to buy the company. Twitter's response basically see
1:28:11
you in court. So Brett Taylor, here's what he tweeted out the
1:28:14
chairman of Twitter's Board of Directors Long story short,
1:28:17
saying we are going to win this in the Delaware Court of
1:28:21
Chancery. One a wedge issue Twitter reporting that fewer
1:28:24
than 5% of its users were fake or spam focused. But Musk says
1:28:30
that number may not be accurate and says the statements are
1:28:32
either false or materially misleading. Legal experts say
1:28:36
this is going to be an elongated, somewhat painful
1:28:39
court battle. And for musk, there is a breakup fee of $1
1:28:42
billion minimum the price for Elon Musk to walk away. One
1:28:47
worth one point worth noting though, is that the court could
1:28:50
actually force musk in certain circumstances to buy the
1:28:54
company. That's why there's going to be a lot Oh wranglings
1:28:57
fight ahead.
1:28:58
We'll have to watch how it all plays out. Yeah, I got plenty of
1:29:04
lawyers to keep him from paying 2 billion. This, there's no way
1:29:08
this, but I will say I'm going to stop you. I will say that and
1:29:12
I put it in the newsletter even. You called it you're in the red
1:29:16
book with a checkmark next to your name. The only person in
1:29:20
the world who made this outrageous prediction. At the
1:29:23
time it seemed logical to me that he could buy it for various
1:29:27
reasons. I saw opportunity. But you said from the get go, that's
1:29:31
a very good go.
1:29:33
I said he's going to destroy Twitter.
1:29:35
He's and that was his goal. Yes. Yes, that's what you said and
1:29:40
you're so far. You're about 99% there.
1:29:45
So you also put it in the newsletter. You know the
1:29:47
reasoning for this is unclear.
1:29:52
That is that that's the read and now we're talking about so I
1:29:56
want to know your reasoning okay. For coming up with this
1:30:00
with this prognostication I've been
1:30:03
following Elon Musk for a while I met him back in the pod show
1:30:08
days at an event at Sequoia, who was the guy who was the big guy
1:30:14
behind Sequoia Capital, his name of track. Well, he is now number
1:30:20
two or a he's moved back a little bit in Sequoia and rule
1:30:25
of Botha, another South African is now the CEO of Sequoia
1:30:29
Capital. So, it wasn't just Sequoia because Sequoia and
1:30:33
Kleiner Perkins, we had an investment from both of them.
1:30:36
We're kind of working together. And Elon was heralded as, as
1:30:40
just this magical. I mean, you can barely even even come in his
1:30:46
orbit. He's so phenomenal. And I met the guy and it's just like a
1:30:50
quiet like, hey, it didn't say much. You know, kind of like a
1:30:53
doofus. Then Ray lane, sorry. Yeah. So, but he had this this.
1:30:59
Now remember, this isn't the time when Kleiner Perkins has
1:31:04
set up the green investment fund or something like that they had
1:31:08
and it was massive. Investors took a bath they Yeah, of
1:31:11
course. But this was part of that scheme.
1:31:14
And this part with Gore was always hanging out there.
1:31:18
Oh, yeah, absolutely. Gore of course still. still involved
1:31:23
with Kleiner Perkins and and Bano YouTube's green investment
1:31:28
bullcrap. So it was was to such a degree that Ray Lane who was
1:31:32
kind of our main partner at Kleiner Perkins, he asked me and
1:31:36
Blum and I think Marta as well to fly on his on his jet which
1:31:42
was an thing was an Embraer I mean, this is like a 15 person
1:31:47
jet here we are three people flying from San Francisco to Los
1:31:52
Angeles, where they had the launch of the Tesla in a in a
1:31:56
hangar. And you know, you couldn't drive it yourself, but
1:31:58
you could wait in line and then you'd sit in their little Tesla.
1:32:03
Yeah, that was the Roadster the Roadster which was basically the
1:32:08
what was the name of that card is Lotus yeah was the Lotus body
1:32:12
and they had the the battery in there. Now you weren't allowed
1:32:14
to drive yourself. No driving through this through this
1:32:17
hangar. And of course, the great thing was the acceleration was
1:32:20
out of control, and a big light board up in the hangar. And it
1:32:26
showed everyone who had just put money down to buy one and what
1:32:29
number they were. So this was a total like, look at my deck. I
1:32:34
got two of them. Now of course Elon now he's so here's where I
1:32:37
come from. So that experience and my generally conspiratorial
1:32:42
non trusting attitude towards the world. I said, this guy is
1:32:46
not Tony Stark. All right, everyone's pretending he's Tony.
1:32:50
So magically, he's a South African with a momager. Okay,
1:32:54
his mom is his manager. He did not invent Pay Pal. He's
1:32:58
basically sold his domain name for the X company or whatever.
1:33:03
And they hated him. And they and they got rid of them because
1:33:06
it's probably not a really cool dude. So then with his Sequoia
1:33:10
guys, and with Kleiner Perkins, they bought Tesla, you know that
1:33:14
history has been almost almost washed. And single handedly.
1:33:19
Elon Musk has brought too much applause from the tech community
1:33:23
and tech boys and girls has brought us into the era of loss
1:33:28
of freedom with electric vehicles totally part of the
1:33:31
green new deal you know, when there's no infrastructure for
1:33:35
this he pushed everyone it became the hot new thing is Oh,
1:33:38
Tesla, who could ever Tesla there's a million of these cars
1:33:41
and you know, at the same time, you know, I'm sorry, the grid
1:33:44
code grids, the grids gonna go down you know, none of this
1:33:47
stuff is gonna work is okay, fine. Thank you, Elon. And then
1:33:52
then he's all Bitcoin bitcoin is great. We're accepting bitcoin
1:33:56
for Tesla. Yeah. And then the ESG bullshit came in and it was
1:34:00
time for him to start the meltdown. All word, we're not
1:34:03
going to accept him on Bitcoin until we figured out how we can
1:34:06
fix the fix the proof of work and it's bad for the earth. And
1:34:11
I think even though an unintended consequence,
1:34:15
possibly. Certainly with his love of Dogecoin he kind of kick
1:34:20
started the crypto winter and what I think is great is this
1:34:26
complete meltdown and all the shit coins that are all going
1:34:29
bankrupt. You can finally see where the scam is, and
1:34:31
obviously, Bitcoin still kind of stands out there but he he is
1:34:35
the one that decided to tip the scales. It was right before he
1:34:39
went on Saturday Night Live. So he is a destroyer. He's a
1:34:43
destroyer of freedom, a destroyer of autonomy, a destroy
1:34:48
nm in my personal beliefs, a Bitcoin I think, but he
1:34:51
destroyed and certainly destroyed the momentum. So when
1:34:55
he came in with Twitter, it was obvious, transform them When he
1:35:00
said he said, I need to have ver everyone needs to be verified,
1:35:05
everybody has to have a check mark will have your driver's
1:35:07
license will know who you are. That way we keep the which is a
1:35:12
generally good idea. If you want to look at it that way. It's
1:35:15
like, Hey, you can say whatever you want. But if you slander
1:35:18
someone or etc, there'll be no handles, you know, you'll be
1:35:21
this guy, and someone can come and beat you up, and you'll have
1:35:24
to deal with it, which in essence, destroys Twitter, all
1:35:29
the fun will be gone.
1:35:31
So either transform it, and if you can't, can't transform it,
1:35:35
destroy it. And him starting out on the bots. And I've read his
1:35:41
letter to the Reddit letter, which includes accusations that
1:35:46
Twitter lied in documents that are, of course are relevant at
1:35:50
the at the SEC level for investors, about the percentage
1:35:54
of bots and non human accounts. They say it's 5% or less. He
1:35:58
says, You can't identify it. You lied about it. So it may be I
1:36:04
mean, what is going to happen? And it's interesting, because I
1:36:06
even heard Kara Swisher she's like, oh, you know, this is all
1:36:11
bullshit. There's no this it's definitely 5%. This is crap.
1:36:15
These people are now protecting Silicon Valley's business model.
1:36:19
Because advertisers, they may not be saying it that it's not
1:36:22
going to be published easily. But they're all sitting around
1:36:24
going, Wait a minute. What if it's 50? Elon Musk says
1:36:28
significantly more? What if it's 1015 20 25%? What am I paying
1:36:33
for? And this will this will bleed over to Facebook and to
1:36:37
Google. And I think that as an agent of change, he works for
1:36:42
governments, he gets paid by governments. That's where Tesla
1:36:46
gets all their money. He might build it himself after
1:36:52
destroying this. He might I don't know. I also think there's
1:36:55
a little bit more going on with Twitter as I reviewed the
1:36:58
numbers, how can a company that has been in business for 15
1:37:02
years, in the last quarter? They did $1.2 billion worth of
1:37:10
revenue at a cost of one point 32? What kind of company is
1:37:15
this? Why would he even be interested in that? I mean,
1:37:18
after 15 years, they're still losing money at that level. And
1:37:23
then to top it off, I think he's also possibly doing cloning
1:37:28
experiments on himself. He now has a total of 10 children with
1:37:33
I think four different women, birthing persons, some of which
1:37:38
were carried by surrogates. He has a pair of triplets he has a
1:37:42
twins, which of course is because of IVF treatments born
1:37:46
within several weeks from each other to different women. What
1:37:50
the hell is going on? And everyone's just like, Oh, he's
1:37:55
Elon. He's, like Tony Stark is eccentric bullshit. This guy is
1:37:59
dangerous and agent of change. And he's working for one,
1:38:02
possibly multiple government governments.
1:38:06
But can I say one thing in summary? Sure. I'm sorry, I
1:38:09
asked.
1:38:14
What would that I'd like to thank you for your courage and
1:38:16
say in the morning to you the man who's afraid to ask, but he
1:38:19
did put the C in John C. Dvorak. Ladies and gentlemen, here he is
1:38:22
my friend on the other end. John C. Navarro.
1:38:26
Mr. Adam curry memorial services. He was on the ground
1:38:29
feet near in the air subs in the water, no names and nights out
1:38:33
there
1:38:34
in the morning to our trolls in the troll room who are listening
1:38:36
live. As we speak, you might be listening in what do we have? We
1:38:41
have pod verse, we have curio caster, I think, one or two
1:38:46
others. Now you can use those apps, you get a notification
1:38:50
when the show goes live. You get the troll room right there. You
1:38:53
get the live stream. And you can literally be one of the people
1:38:57
I'm going to count right now. All right, put your hands up
1:39:00
close. I want to see where you're going now. Let me see. I
1:39:04
did not did not get did not get a count. Here we go. Oh 2247.
1:39:13
So pretty much the same as last Sunday.
1:39:15
That's good things. But things have changed a little bit and I
1:39:18
kind of I kind of like to shake up different artists are popping
1:39:21
up that some artists have gone away because they can't listen
1:39:24
live. We have a different level of trolling going on in there
1:39:28
more awake. So they're doing the show two hours later, like, you
1:39:33
know, they've had their second third cup of coffee and now they
1:39:36
really have maybe even lunch and so they're quite good at
1:39:39
trolling. And you can join them as I said, you can also go to
1:39:42
troll room.io and listen to the live stream today. As it's
1:39:46
starting to pan out there's no agenda stream.com which is truly
1:39:50
the best podcast network in the universe. Why? Because there's
1:39:54
no ads. There's, you know, it's all it's all no agenda nation.
1:40:00
This there's no money to be made through the traditional ways,
1:40:03
which is why all of these dumb networks always fail. This is
1:40:06
just a way for people to hang out together and do shows. And
1:40:09
today, we'll have in total, five live shows on no agenda
1:40:14
stream.com We can almost call it a radio station. It's really
1:40:18
quite incredible.
1:40:20
Yeah, I agree. It's exactly what it should be. All right,
1:40:25
wait. You can also follow us at no agenda. social.com Jhansi,
1:40:28
Dvorak had no agenda social.com or Adam at no agenda social.com.
1:40:32
This is our federated little spot in the universe of the
1:40:35
fediverse. It's a mastodon server, you can get one
1:40:38
yourself, you can set it up, you can get an account almost
1:40:41
anywhere. Follow us and the rest will soon flow through. Now we
1:40:44
need to thank the artists for episode 1466. And I believe this
1:40:53
was a a two in a row for Sir Paul couture.
1:40:57
Yes, it was. And this
1:40:59
was an that was unexpected. We haven't heard from Sir Paul in
1:41:03
so long. And this probably has something to do with the time
1:41:06
change. Exactly. Exactly. And he had this adorable cow with a
1:41:12
milk bottle on fire. Little windmill in the background.
1:41:16
Yeah, it was a Molotov cocktail. Milk, but oh,
1:41:20
yeah, there you go. Molotov cocktail with a Dutch flag. Kind
1:41:24
of look more like the French flag color wise. I mean, there's
1:41:27
red, white and blue
1:41:28
ray in the middle. He probably did. Yeah. for aesthetic
1:41:32
reasons.
1:41:33
Yeah, that makes sense. We just loved it. We thought we thought
1:41:37
it was good.
1:41:37
We know is cute. And I there's nothing that gets our attention
1:41:40
better than a smiling cow.
1:41:44
True. Male in fact,
1:41:47
everybody loves to see a smiling cow.
1:41:50
For sure. Let's see. What else are we looking at tip? A lot of
1:41:55
people came in with nut SAP nut juice regarding the the almonds,
1:41:59
which I think you have a follow up for later on.
1:42:02
Yeah, I do. I did some research to
1:42:05
what else was in here and a lot of Georgia Guidestones. It's
1:42:11
like, Man, I got an email from one of our producers. It's like,
1:42:16
dude, the Georgia Guidestones are still there. Look at this
1:42:20
video. We've been we've been we've been we've been snookered,
1:42:24
click on the link. And there's a guy showing the Georgia
1:42:27
Guidestones. uploaded today. Of course it says right there in
1:42:33
huge letters live stream from 2018. Alright, dude, what are
1:42:38
you sending me? Oh, sorry, man. I was really high people to not
1:42:42
send emails to us when you're really high. It's no, just not
1:42:47
good. You got to keep your producer hat on and straight at
1:42:50
all times.
1:42:51
Yeah, it makes us do extra work that we don't need to do. It was
1:42:54
three
1:42:54
clicks. I'm telling you hated it.
1:42:56
Yeah, it was three clicks. But there was time in between.
1:43:01
The Ukraine meat grinder was kind of cute, although somewhat
1:43:05
less maudlin. Not just grotesque.
1:43:09
Yeah. Some Bo Jo stuff. We're not big fans of putting
1:43:13
political figures in the artwork in general. I mean, of course
1:43:16
there's exceptions. We've done it. Yeah. Okay. Well,
1:43:21
and but we don't like doing it you're right. It
1:43:24
was that was kind of it. There wasn't much else was there news.
1:43:27
This
1:43:27
one went out to the spook. Did these pieces that had Bo Jo and
1:43:35
Georgia Guidestones monument there and when I did that, and
1:43:40
he What do you mean he didn't know he didn't?
1:43:43
I didn't. That was like a mash up of Biden on the gas.
1:43:47
I'm not getting
1:43:49
and yeah, that was weird. So Sir Paul couture Thank you very much
1:43:54
for bringing us that artwork. For episode 1466 You can follow
1:43:59

1:44:02

1:44:06
down I hit the newsletter. I put some art from Episode 500

1:45:10

1:45:13
value for value system the value for value model that we've been
1:45:17

Well, it didn't remind me that necessarily band with the band
1:46:54
like always yelling Yeah, a bunch of bands. A bunch of
1:46:56

8.85 which is a boobs. Massive boobs. Hey, after donating
1:48:11
enough to be knighted during today's show and second guessing
1:48:13
my my choice of jingles earlier. A DOM was very interesting with
1:48:18
his notes he sent about 18 notes above 50 notes even this morning
1:48:23
last minute so far. I mean, he might check your email he might
1:48:26
have updated us. I realized I couldn't do it all alone a night
1:48:30
must have his Dean by his side. So Audra Matthews, Angel you're
1:48:34
coming to the round table with a grab her by the hair. Be sure to
1:48:39

1:48:42
lots of cleavage. Oh my goodness. Okay. The Duke of Luna
1:48:45
will love it. John, you're free to enjoy the view as well. Holy
1:48:49
crap. This is misogynist donation? Yeah. When she started
1:48:53
listening two plus years ago Adam, you were her favorite. But
1:48:56
she's now a card carrying member of the John C fan club. Hearing.
1:49:01
John's voice is like Spanish Fly for her. Really. For anybody who
1:49:08
knows what that still is, hey, Audra crudeness. I often have to
1:49:13
pause the show when we listen together otherwise, she
1:49:15
distracts me too much from the great media deconstruction when
1:49:18
she's on the attack. Like a cougar hunting her willing and
1:49:22
eager pray. You know what they say about couples that no agenda
1:49:25
together Audra. I'm looking forward to no agenda in with you
1:49:29
right after this donation and for the rest of our lives, even
1:49:32
if it means returning to rerun should the boys ever find an
1:49:35
exit strategy as she'd love Lego and white Russians at the at the
1:49:40
roundtable and I'd love another dose of art two d two
1:49:43
relationship karma. Love you most and she will be Dame Audra

1:50:29
or whatever. And a paper wouldn't take it, but they would
1:50:33
take the 800 and a 500 so,
1:50:36

si.com d o n o r s e.com The creator was murdered his death
1:51:55
should not go in vain. Oh yeah. This was a we didn't say much
1:51:59
about it. This is guys who's I guess adored and he set up a a
1:52:05
nonprofit and then he got murdered in his house in I want
1:52:08
to say it was Illinois.
1:52:11
I don't know anything about this.
1:52:13
Yeah, who was second it's worth it's worth a mention because
1:52:18
it's like one of those stories that we just didn't get to
1:52:21
because you know time let me see. Let me see donor see. Yeah,
1:52:27
that was the that was the name of of his charity donor see and
1:52:32
was apparently quite successful. I guess the website is kind of
1:52:36
overloaded now. So oh, here we go. What was his name? gret
1:52:41
glider. Never heard of him? No. Yeah, just before his passing is
1:52:49
murder. gret wrote about the launch of the donor see humanity
1:52:52
fund a rolling fund that gets money directly to the poorest
1:52:54
10% of the world. And I think that a lot of corporate sponsors
1:52:58
involved in this as well. I'm not sure. I don't know. We
1:53:00
should look into it. A lot of people sending links about this,
1:53:03
so I just don't know when they'll look into it. Yeah, we
1:53:06
will.
1:53:07
marks up $500 From oh, wait
1:53:11
a minute. Hold on. Did I finish that? Yes. I'm sorry. Yes, go
1:53:14
ahead.
1:53:15
marks up is in Kirk unveiled. Holland three save $500 We'll
1:53:21
get it. Please take this money for all the hard work that you
1:53:25
do. I'd like this donation to be credited to our cat. Sure.
1:53:30
uremia owes a poster URI meow has a lot to send him on his way
1:53:35
to Baronet status Consider it done. No, no, he's on the list.
1:53:40
But he is now. After moving from the Netherlands to Russia 1.5
1:53:46
years ago to be exact. We're now settling in a house with a
1:53:50
modest piece of land. Imagining my surprise finding out that the
1:53:54
house has two actual toilets. Oh
1:53:56
no. Wow, Russians indoor toilets they hate
1:54:01
to keep it that way. We ask friends and family to check
1:54:04
their coalition to coughs at the door. Your kids one of them gets
1:54:08
an urge to shoot a toilet. So far, so good. Thanks to my
1:54:13
mother in law, we have a thriving vegetable vegetable
1:54:17
garden. And we will soon be adding some chickens for fresh
1:54:21
eggs. I'm amazed how many Russians grow and forage their
1:54:25
own food, keep their own animals and are generally well stocked
1:54:29
for the winter. This is especially important right now.
1:54:33
Prices are in the supermarkets have been going up up up
1:54:36
especially on imported products which have doubled or tripled in
1:54:40
price. Local products have not gone up much. So smart shoppers
1:54:44
are still able to get what they need at a reasonable price. No
1:54:48
empty shells by the way, just higher prices. Oh and gas is
1:54:52
pretty cheap for some reason. You're being misled
1:54:57
because you're soaking in it. Of course you're being missed. lead
1:55:00
so it seems that things are still kind of okay in Russia.
1:55:03
He says even with the current situation we're happy to have
1:55:06
left when we did, which is leaving Holland COVID
1:55:10
restrictions were pretty tight and swapping our noisy apartment
1:55:14
for a house with land around it makes more sense now than ever.
1:55:18
Know Jing Golson since I botched that last time, just a baby
1:55:23
making karma for us and whoever else needs it. Keep up the good
1:55:27
work From Russia with love. Mark.
1:55:31
You've got karma.
1:55:35
John Bolland is in Brockport New York 360 meetup donation yes he
1:55:41

1:55:53
tshwane switcheroo got it. Please look for her email did
1:55:59

1:56:01
I think I do. Is it later donation I think somewhere I
1:56:05
continue
1:56:05
to read if none from her the meetup email subject is meetup
1:56:09
report donation the douche douche douche the whole group
1:56:13
everyone participate in the game which Mary won the executive
1:56:16
producer ship? Ah, yes. Okay.
1:56:20
You've been de deuced
1:56:21
we have to come up with a format for this, I think. Because when
1:56:25
people donate from a, from a meetup, we have to kind of I
1:56:32
mean, he did it. Okay. In this case, I guess we understand
1:56:35
what's going on. We have a few of these. We'll figure it out.
1:56:38
We will figure it out. All right. So Mary tshwane will be
1:56:42
will be credited, and we'll look for her email which may be
1:56:44
coming up later.
1:56:46
And then we'll expect to know from John saying no, that was my
1:56:48
money. John bule another John and Vista California, three
1:56:53
three 3.88. And he needs 33 is the magic number. Atlas Shrugged
1:56:59
to yak karma. ITM I received multiple signs it was time to
1:57:04
donate first was the sad puppy in the newsletter. The second
1:57:07
was when I had to negotiate a concession concession from a
1:57:12
price increase from my glass vendor. They wanted to increase
1:57:16
the price on a quote that was expired by 33 days. And they
1:57:22
wanted to excuse it by 40%, after multiple requests for
1:57:25
management did reduce it to a 33% increase. Not the way I
1:57:30
wanted to receive the message to donate but it was received
1:57:33
nonetheless. Lastly, the two of you have been have had
1:57:38
discussions of what to do when the inevitable scars scarcity of
1:57:42
one of your lives run out of time. Well, I can't imagine the
1:57:46
show is anybody else than crackpot and buzzkill The show
1:57:49
must go on as an executive producer that no agenda show I
1:57:53
would like to propose an idea
1:57:56
I don't like this I'll just say right I haven't even read any
1:57:58
further but what is he saying? If one of us if I can keels over
1:58:01
is that what he's saying?
1:58:02
We're gonna find out all right. For the summer months of July,
1:58:06
August and September we will start a monetary poll. If your
1:58:10
donation ends with dot eight eight and that signifies double
1:58:13
double in affinity. The show must go on with a replacement
1:58:17
host if your donation is 22 that means you believe a crackpot and
1:58:21
Bosco cannot be replaced and with the unfortunate demise of a
1:58:24
host the show comes to an end at the end of summer whichever
1:58:28
amount is the most total donations of dot eight or dot
1:58:32
two two would help you in the direction of whatever to seek
1:58:35
out a possible replacement Hoser move on to this something new
1:58:38
thank you for your courage.
1:58:40
Okay To me this sounds like one of us is getting whacked after
1:58:43
September.
1:58:44
Oh no, I don't like
1:58:51
the magic number you've got
1:59:04
karma I'm not gonna say anything about it. I'm interested in what
1:59:09
people think but
1:59:12
we've done these before these kinds of caused a point now with
1:59:15
one of us buying but we're quitting the dot What do you
1:59:20
say? I'm not saying anything just saying. Oh, I didn't like
1:59:26
that. And it's like, sounds like you don't get enough responses
1:59:31
to make it work.
1:59:32

2:04:00
anniversary of my unlikely survival of a brain aneurysm.
2:04:03
Yes, we know her well. Of course. This year I'm proud to
2:04:07
do so for the first time as a dame five years ago, in this
2:04:10
very day, my husband the deaf, dumb and blind night found the
2:04:13
collapse that our neighbor's house and I live to tell the
2:04:16
tale after two months in the hospital, two brain surgeries
2:04:19
and seriously, lots of no agenda. Producers must never
2:04:23
forget this show was critical for brain health, listening to
2:04:26
the show grounded me in the hospital and continues to help
2:04:29
keep my anxiety at bay and my marriage healthy. Thank you.
2:04:33
That's a lot of phrase that what?
2:04:36
All caps, all caps.
2:04:38
That's a lot of praise. Thank you. Now I promised myself I
2:04:42
wouldn't write a super long note this year, but there's just one
2:04:44
more quick thing that's been bugging me lately, if I may. Oh,
2:04:47
here we go. build us up cut us down. I'm a speech language
2:04:52
pathologist here to tell you, Joe Biden does not have a true
2:04:57
stutter. Oh, this is information we didn't have. It is part of my
2:05:03
job to evaluate and treat stuttering and I do so on a
2:05:06
regular basis. When I can present it properly for the
2:05:09
show, I look forward to sending over a complete evaluation of
2:05:12
the President that I conducted using a standardized assessment
2:05:15
measurement, the stuttering Severity Index nice and four
2:05:20
different language samples from Biden sorry to say his score
2:05:23
indicates the guy is just an old burnt out jackass, not a
2:05:26
stutterer stay tuned for that and thank you no agenda family
2:05:32
for your courage. No jingles needed just some screaming
2:05:34
French Bulldog travel karma for a busy mom of a family reunion

2:06:53

You know, I gotta I have to pass on a note to you. Because this
2:06:58
one kind of reminded me of it and I wrote it down. This email
2:07:02
came short. Adam, it's kind of ironic. I'm going to do the
2:07:06
voice. It's kind of ironic the Dvorak blocked a response to his
2:07:09
email despairing over the fact that new and is responding to
2:07:13
his newsletter. The following is what he blocked Could you please
2:07:16
ensure he receives a copy? I'm gonna I'm gonna read this to
2:07:20
you, John. I haven't responded since you became the leading
2:07:24
outlet for Russian state news regarding Ukraine. Furthermore,
2:07:28
you blocked me in denied doing so which made every attempt that
2:07:32
donation an ordeal. I once sent a note to your Pio box asking
2:07:36
for an address to which I could send you some wine as a gift all
2:07:40
caps, and you never had the decency to respond to it.
2:07:43
Finally, I just got so tired of Adam's reflexive conspiratorial
2:07:47
ism and inter invertebrate whining not to mention the bad
2:07:51
information you both get from some of your insiders eg the
2:07:55
demise of Goldman Sachs. I'm at the least overboard very likely.
2:08:00
So over you, sir crush a lot black night of the LI la new
2:08:05
grape fields.
2:08:08
I remember getting a note from anybody about sending me wine.
2:08:12
You blocked it. I doubt the veracity of any of this.
2:08:15
You said some very nasty things there.
2:08:18
He's not a happy camper. No sad I think what happened? He
2:08:21
shorted Goldman
2:08:24
Hey, we never said to invest. I mean,
2:08:28
we don't give investment at all. I should have shorted Twitter
2:08:33
just say
2:08:34
even that. Okay. That was who was who was
2:08:40
the last one was Ross Johnson and I guess it's my turn to read
2:08:44

It's interesting. When when the jingle was pulled apart like
2:14:12
that, and I know for a fact that as you've got karma for some
2:14:15
reason, people think she's saying you've got pharma in this
2:14:20
particular jingle, which is weird. I'm not quite sure why
2:14:23
that is. Talia do pray Douglas McKinney, Texas. Hello McKinney.

2:14:38

2:16:42
Means the guy it was earlier in the show whose wife in light to
2:16:46
show during that particular jingling moaning about it. spawn
2:16:52
in Eureka California. $200 or salmon spawn peeking out from
2:16:57
behind the redwood curtain. The sad Beagle work John however,
2:17:01
delayed my response to love you guys could use some random rev
2:17:05
and stereo goat that you've recurred.
2:17:09
Okay, we got that for you. We will roll it out
2:17:16
DSP I see.
2:17:19
You've got
2:17:25
officially known as luge goat, but okay, we'll leave it at
2:17:28
that. And then last, that Associate Executive producer
2:17:33
from Brandon Brandon's in Florida, $200, John Studebaker,
2:17:38
and he says I didn't think I was being long winded. But according
2:17:40
to pay pal, I was. So I had to send an email. The subject will
2:17:43
be PayPal donation Did you receive? No, me neither.
2:17:49
I'm going to take one last look, if it
2:17:51
actually would say PayPal donation, that would be the
2:17:53
correct subject. So I would expect it to be in there.
2:17:55
Well, there any time the word donation is in the subject line
2:18:01
it finds it. And I am going to look up the exact words Pay Pal
2:18:06
donation and see with something I made. It's very exciting,
2:18:10
absolutely nothing here.
2:18:12
Well send it to us and let us know. And thank you, John
2:18:15
Studebaker and all of our Associate Executive producers
2:18:18
and of course, our executive producers for episode 1467 value
2:18:23
for value. It's kind of the reverse of how can I say this?
2:18:30
You know how, like a church says, you know, you should
2:18:33
support the church or nonprofit support us. It's exactly the
2:18:37
opposite. We say Did you get any value from what you heard? And
2:18:42
whatever that is, you turn that into a number that's valuable
2:18:45
for you. And it works every single time. Of course, it's a
2:18:48
roller coaster for us. But man, I love my job. And I really
2:18:51
appreciate you letting us do it. If you'd like to become an
2:18:53
executive or Associate Executive Producer of the no agenda show,
2:18:56
go here to vorak.org/and a thank you again for your time, talent
2:19:02
and treasure for episode 1467. Our formula is this. We go out.
2:19:08
We had people in the mouth Okay, let's see. Let's see. Let's see.
2:19:33
Did you have something special you wanted to roll out in the
2:19:35
second? Second segment here?
2:19:38
Let's do the online stuff and get it out of the way. Oh, yes.
2:19:41
Very
2:19:41
good. It's interesting. You had a note or a link for the show
2:19:46
notes. I also have a separate link. And the premise of the
2:19:50
last show was an email from one of our producers who says I
2:19:54
don't know what they're talking about with this almonds needing
2:19:56
a gallon of water for one almond oil one 1.1 gallon of almond
2:20:02
water for one Ullman. And she's growing them in the
2:20:05
Mediterranean. She says I just don't see it. I don't understand
2:20:09
it. It sounds like something's up and so and you of course,
2:20:13
said oh yeah, almonds are horrible and what because I was
2:20:17
brainwashed course Fornia Of course every day and I have
2:20:20
thought and so I have not listened to. I've looked at my
2:20:23
link. I'm very excited to find out what you've learned about
2:20:26
the almond is the almond water sucking crisis bogus or not.
2:20:32
Alright, so let's go to this clip first and get a little
2:20:35
report an update on the Allman business.
2:20:39
Is it actually called update on the almond business all almond
2:20:42
with all the shortages Americans are now facing some are worried
2:20:45
almonds could be the next hard to find item on their shopping
2:20:48
lists. According to a recent report from the Almond Board of
2:20:51
California exports of the popular not hard down 13% this
2:20:55
year. This despite the crop doing well and shipments hitting
2:20:58
a new record. The Los Angeles Times reports about 1.3 billion
2:21:02
pounds of unsold almonds are stuck in processing and packing
2:21:06
plants. Experts say while shipping costs have improved,
2:21:09
they are still high. The industry is also worried that
2:21:12
the ongoing drought in parts of California could impact its
2:21:15
harvest. Still, they say sales of almonds remain strong around
2:21:18
the world. Okay.
2:21:21
Okay, so I looked into and they do we have a couple of show
2:21:24
notes, the links you can look into it yourself but the 1.1
2:21:28
thing I know nobody even knows where they came from. It was It
2:21:31
was developed by it was developed overseas and it's they
2:21:35
started to apply it to California you know California
2:21:38
farmer claims they do. It takes that much water to make an
2:21:41
almond but it does take a lot it still takes at least a half a
2:21:44
gallon of water for one for one almond Yeah, pretty much but
2:21:49
it's yeah, in problem is of course all nuts. Yeah, grown
2:21:55
anywhere take at least as much as an almond does they're all
2:21:59
the same too. So this idea is to focus on all men's or any fruit
2:22:04
trees also suck it up. So is somewhat misleading. And so they
2:22:09
did their farmers are irked about that and I think they get
2:22:12
their water usage down to less than what the what it is right
2:22:15
now. In comparison to the cattle is bullcrap. Let's just get that
2:22:18
out of the way right away. California accounts for 80% of
2:22:23
the world's almond supply. And that includes almost to go to
2:22:28
China because it gets chopped up and put into food there is a
2:22:32
marzipan is from almonds and so you have a lot of almonds going
2:22:36
to Europe. Almond flour, which is a major commodity is from
2:22:42
these almonds and also all Armand almonds, starch and also
2:22:49
almond meal. There's a lot of all and almond nut butter or nut
2:22:53
I'm sorry, not the nut butter but the nut juice. That's the
2:22:55
people who make almond milk is very popular. Not SAP not SAP.
2:22:59
So almonds are a big deal. I again say I don't like eating
2:23:04
them. I think they're kind of hard. And they don't have a lot
2:23:09
of texture they just green up in your mouth. I'm not a big fan. I
2:23:12
don't I love marzipan.
2:23:14
I don't have proof of this but this seems like a very obvious
2:23:17
one. And I'm focusing only on the nut SAP on the almond milk I
2:23:23
would say it's very likely that the almond myth was thrown into
2:23:31
the ether since we can't find the origin by the dairy lobby
2:23:35
I'm quite convinced the dairy lobby went almond milk we can't
2:23:40
have that we want people to drink our milk yeah they're
2:23:44
horrible for climate change and they take up too much water and
2:23:48
then the nuts app people who by the way if you notice the nuts
2:23:51
app is B is on high rotation advertising they went oh yeah
2:23:56
dairy take this is because of your farts and your cow shit the
2:24:01
dairies no good go nuts SAP This is
2:24:05
the myth about the dairy you know using more water than
2:24:07
anything per ounce of beef is the biggest crock. Yeah, because
2:24:12
mostly grazing lands.
2:24:15
But I don't think that this was pure lobby
2:24:17
and should be like the old the old Boeing versus Airbus fight
2:24:22
that we used to witness Yes, it's pretty big. It's pretty
2:24:25
makes it makes it nothing but sense and I'm sure that maybe
2:24:28
something behind it is just trying to put it put the crimp
2:24:31
on these guys, by the way is all many guys also like to point out
2:24:34
that the almond shells that they're shelled in the process
2:24:38
produce a lot of fuel, which is a biomass fuel. That is quite
2:24:44
nice for burning. It's also good for smoking, by the way. Not as
2:24:47
good as pecan shells anyway, we'll say, but it's good for a
2:24:50
smoking. Have you ever seen Bernie it's good for fuel it's
2:24:53
good for and they also grind it up and give it to cows to eat.
2:24:56
Have you ever smoked ironically,
2:24:57
have you ever smoked pecan shells?
2:25:01
I smoked with pecan shells
2:25:03
with pecan shells What do you I just I want to try it I want to
2:25:06
understand how it works. So you put your backhoe and pecan
2:25:10
together I don't understand I want an RB o BB I thought you
2:25:17
were like wow something like something new I can
2:25:20
yeah you did be definitely you believe me, you know? Anyway man
2:25:28
the old BK barbecue out on BK road out there outside of Austin
2:25:32
that had a had a rig there. He got the guy had some he made
2:25:37
some of the best brisket in Texas. And he always relied on
2:25:41
the on the pecan shells for the smoke. Yeah. Oh, no trick. I
2:25:47
just used pecan shells a lot and make that that flavor.
2:25:51
Just got a little confused. Well, let's stay on the farmer
2:25:54
tip for a moment. This is very disturbing. And we had a
2:25:58
racially motivated handout from the Biden administration, which
2:26:03
was sending I believe, $5 billion to African American
2:26:07
farmers only. Remember this? Yeah. Only African American
2:26:12
farmers get this $5 billion, which a lot of farmers went home
2:26:16
man, that's kind of racist. But okay. I guess that's what Biden
2:26:22
administration is about. So here is one of these black farmers
2:26:25
Hatton all on MSNBC. It's an indirect recording, but I think
2:26:29
it's decent enough to play otherwise I wouldn't happen. And
2:26:31
as I said on your show earlier, when some of those rare meet
2:26:34
those comments, you should be ashamed of this, because I
2:26:37
certainly have been lobbying him for years about the plight of
2:26:40
the black farmers. We've lost millions of acres of land. We've
2:26:45
lost our way of living our livelihood. And the COVID
2:26:49
release spending bill that provided the 5 billion
2:26:53
indefinitely for 1 billion for outreach and technical
2:26:56
assistance and other 4 billion for debt relief was a 30 year
2:27:00
old ask for myself and others, even as I was promised,
2:27:04
definitely for the settlement agreement. As filled didn't get
2:27:08
a Deputy Secretary of Agriculture told the local and
2:27:11
county office to provide me with definitely, I want to let the
2:27:14
audience know it was white farmers who get basically all of
2:27:19
the debt relief for the 30 years, I was asking Congress and
2:27:22
the courts to provide debt relief to black farmers, white
2:27:26
farmers, that will leave this country with ease. And Black
2:27:30
Farmers like myself were denied it time and time again, to get
2:27:35
debt relief from this country. The SEC has been stacked against
2:27:39
us we've been facing discrimination, as you've noted,
2:27:42
the banks who've been bailed out in this country, with one the
2:27:46
very first to speak out against black farmers getting equity
2:27:50
from this country. So the government has failed us that
2:27:52
makes the founders and it's almost like 40 acres and a mule.
2:27:56
We were promised these things. And every time there's a pot of
2:28:00
money that's supposed to go to black farmers or black people in
2:28:03
this country. We're told we have to wait. Last July at the White
2:28:07
House, I was promised a meeting by President Biden that that
2:28:12
hasn't happened. Since that time, we provided $50 billion in
2:28:16
aid to Ukraine and other regions of the country. But we can't
2:28:21
find a way to get the debt relief to blacks and other
2:28:24
farmers at a time that matter.
2:28:28
Oh, imagine that. He went to white farmers. Imagine that.
2:28:32
Nothing went to blacks. By the way, racist trolls horrible
2:28:38
people in that in the in the troll room. Unbelievable.
2:28:43
So yeah, let's ignore it. They Yeah, so Biden's full of crap is
2:28:50
what it really amounts to and these guys, this is what the
2:28:52
black community has to be stuck with this. Democrats
2:28:56
everyone says we're wrong. We're being played. This is not true.
2:28:59
So then alright, that's fine. That's fine. That's fine. We
2:29:01
might use that counter clip to prove that we're wrong. No,
