Sunday, November 20 of 2022. This Year Award Winning
0:07
Combination media assassination episode 15 105 This is no
0:12
agenda, surviving the lake effect and broadcasting live
0:17
from the heart of the Texas hill country here in Suma region
0:19
number six in the morning, everybody. I'm Adam curry
0:22
from Northern Silicon Valley where Cal beat Stanford him John
0:26
C. Dvorak.
0:28
Buzzkill.
0:33
Yes, they beat it because of the lake effect I hear.
0:37
Yes, exactly. Have you have you ever heard of we were discussed
0:40
the lake effect? I don't know. I'm very familiar with it.
0:44
Oh, I don't remember it as a term.
0:48
Oh, it's been forever. Oh, wow. It's back. Turning
0:51
now to a massive and dangerous Lake Effect store moving from
0:54
the Great Lakes hasn't
0:55
ever been massive and dangerous, though is the question. They're
0:58
always Nash no massive and dangerous. Massive and dangerous
1:03
right
1:03
now to a massive and dangerous Lake Effect storm moving from
1:06
the Great Lakes to the northeast. several feet of snow
1:08
is likely across multiple states. The storm is already
1:12
being blamed for at least two deaths and there are reports of
1:15
a partial building collapse. Just life of Buffalo. The snow
1:18
is expected to pile up across the Great Lakes region through
1:21
the weekend and nationally. below normal temperatures are
1:24
forecast from the Pacific northwest to the east coast and
1:27
as far south as Texas.
1:30
Global warming. Exactly.
1:32
And since your since you're into sports,
1:36
a lot of us gonna be watching football this weekend. The
1:38
Buffalo Bills. Were supposed to play the Detroit Detroit Lions
1:44
in Buffalo this weekend. The game has been moved. A Buffalo
1:48
Bills game has been moved because no one tells you
1:53
anything about what we're looking at that actually brings
1:56
us to our big number. This blinding snowstorm that's
1:58
supposed to be coming here now. But 25 Below those are some of
2:02
the windshields expect it's the tweed through parts but Northern
2:05
Rockies and plains today some of the coldest temperatures so far
2:08
this season all this just going into a really a rough weekend of
2:12
weather and yes the buffalo that whole area Western New York. A
2:15
bit of a mess right now lake
2:16
effect snow up and listening to gingers a Morristown. Oh,
2:19
yes. I would love it when they have to do new stories about cop
2:23
27 wallets. 25 below in Buffalo.
2:27
What's funny, Buffalo Bills a team which is in Buffalo da
2:31
Yeah. They play in the snow you play in the snow in these areas.
2:35
But they showed a picture this stadium. It's like 10 feet of
2:40
snow. It's great throw the ball it would land on top of a
2:44
snowbank just go grab it. It's just hilarious. They should.
2:51
It's really good. So you know, of course, this
2:53
is all very annoying to have my butt and I have my cup. 20? No,
2:57
I know I'm leading you right into it. Yes. At first, we have
3:01
to listen to the president who says you don't have to worry
3:04
about it. This is happening everywhere. In in Europe.
3:08
They're now expecting a very cold winter of course it will be
3:12
the lake effect from that lake over there. The North Sea. And
3:18
what was it? What was it? It was? We know about Germany there
3:22
was something else. Oh, yeah, that probably the UK. Oh man
3:27
they expect like normal class families to not be able to it's
3:31
heat or eat is the slogan now in the UK can eat get heat or eat.
3:35
It's horrible. Anyway, to die. We have the same situation here.
3:40
Of course, only our president, he's already figured out what to
3:45
do. We're saved 500
3:47
for new doors 2000 install heat pump 600 to replace electric
3:52
panels. These are what the hit this means. If you're living in
3:57
a home with a drafty windows and doors starting January one,
4:01
you'll be able to save up to $1,100 the cost of replacing
4:05
them the nice test on the upgrade to also save a lot of
4:09
money going forward because your utility bills will be lower and
4:13
as good for your wallet. But it's also good for the
4:15
environment. Because you're using less energy. That's not
4:19
all. It was all solar panels on the roof you can get a tax
4:23
credit for 30% of the cost credit will bring down the cost
4:28
of installation by about $7,500 When you get to keep saving his
4:33
money on your electric bills for the remainder of the year.
4:37
So the President's solution is hey, just put some solar panels
4:41
on your roof. We'll give you 30% back after you funded it. Hey,
4:45
you want to upgrade your drafty leaky door. Why do you think Mr.
4:48
President, they have a drafty leaky door in the first place.
4:54
It's
4:57
an idiot. big idiot
5:00
All right, let's let's do your ihrem.
5:02
Well, I do have a bunch of COP tips.
5:06
Yeah, I got some cop clips
5:12
I don't even see him on here where they go.
5:15
Well now that's a good question.
5:19
Cop dramas gets mixed with CCC. Yep, you guys go with. I only
5:25
have two clips, but they're important. This is the rundown
5:27
from the failure. This is from PBS, the US
5:31
and other nations offered an 11th hour proposal to rescue UN
5:35
climate talks from failure. The focus was on compensating
5:39
nations already being damaged by weather disaster preparation.
5:42
Yes, Bennett reports.
5:44
With Climate Talks nearing the end, the divisions only seem to
5:48
be widening today, as world leaders push past their initial
5:51
deadline for reaching a deal. Today we need to shift gears
5:55
again. On our side, several climate issues are being debated
6:00
at the annual United Nations Summit. And questions
6:03
surrounding the creation of potential loss and damage
6:06
payments remain a major sticking point. The basic idea wealthier
6:11
nations which have long polluted the most should give money to
6:14
poor and developing nations affected by climate change.
6:18
Germany's foreign minister acknowledged the harmful impacts
6:21
wealthy nations can create for vulnerable countries so much
6:25
money is not an end in itself. It's about ensuring justice
6:29
climate. Yeah, as we are currently seeing that those
6:32
who've contributed the least to it suffer the most from the
6:35
current climate damage.
6:37
The talks were set to wrap today but have been pushed into the
6:40
weekend. As resolutions remain up in the air. A draft decision
6:45
from the Egyptian presidency was released this morning outlining
6:48
a potential plan. Some were immediately critical, saying it
6:53
was vague and left out important priorities. Among the key
6:57
questions whether a new fund for vulnerable nations would be tied
7:01
to explicit commitments to phase out fossil fuels. The European
7:05
Union surprised many overnight with this proposal, but it did
7:09
not appear in the drafts being debated today. This summit
7:12
brought together some of the youngest climate activists to
7:15
fight for their nations.
7:17
You caught the same thing I did. So first of all, yeah, this
7:22
seems to be the only reason for this summit, as usual. And I
7:27
think the number is 100 billion and it's already set. We already
7:30
we already saw the 100 billion they just party for a whole
7:32
week. And they just had to vote at the end. Who was going to get
7:36
what that's what it was all about. Who could who had the
7:38
best party, I guess.
7:41
Nobody's getting anything it looks like the Chinese aren't
7:45
going to pony up and the Indians aren't going to pony up so
7:47
they're gonna keep polluting like crazy. And so the Europeans
7:50
are saying well, you know, it's cold here. We're not going to
7:53
cut fossil fuel for you. And so then they discovered as you've
7:58
obviously found to the new Greta, yes,
8:01
among them 10 year old Nokia dramani som from gonna
8:05
have the heart, then do the math. It is an emergency. If all
8:11
of you were to be young people like me, wouldn't you have
8:15
already agreed to do what is needed to save our planet?
8:19
Her speech drew a standing ovation, a glimmer of hope for
8:22
leaders trying to find unity in the coming days.
8:25
Wow My mind is blown. We both came up with a new Greta but two
8:30
different gratis
8:32
you'd have a different credit than my no African 10 year old
8:35
your what's your age? what's your what's your age?
8:38
Hold on a second cuz she does your A Greta have a Wikipedia
8:42
page.
8:43
I didn't bother to look at what's her name, but she said
8:47
due to Matt, which is a good African accent.
8:51
My Greta is 20
8:54
Oh, that's not great at greatest, ya know, but gret this
8:58
is this is now you have to have a 10 year old lecturing adults
9:03
about saving the planet. She doesn't even know what a planet
9:06
is and then get a standing. Oh,
9:09
my Greta lives in McLean, Virginia.
9:15
She just spoke. Yes.
9:17
Yes. My Greta is the best Greta. I'm happy. Okay, standing
9:22
ovation for Buddha mods. Fine. Fine. Your little African Greta
9:27
is no good. This is the one who's got that she's dynamite to
9:30
look at she's 20 graduate of Stanford, comes from Iran has
9:36
strong you know, born in Iran.
9:38
Now America has to be a child
9:41
and the WaPo and everyone's all in on her.
9:44
Do you have anything to add? I love the science fiction
9:46
reference. I think for me, the biggest thing that I've really
9:50
focused on is making sure that when we think about
9:53
accountability, we think about the fact that thinking of it
9:57
through the lens of individual action is a actually a very
10:00
flawed perception. And I think that too often young people feel
10:04
like we need to think about like our carbon footprint. And we
10:06
need to think about all the ways that we need to act and think
10:09
more sustainably. And I mean, I wrote an op ed for The
10:12
Washington Post about how I live students, but I prefaced it by
10:16
saying that the notion of the carbon footprint was designed by
10:20
fossil fuel companies and really peddled as a marketing scheme to
10:23
make us think that we're responsible for the climate
10:25
crisis when it really is the companies that need to be held
10:28
responsible. And I think for me being able to educate the 1000s
10:31
of young people that I work with, to realize that we need to
10:34
be holding polluters accountable. And part of the
10:37
biggest way we can do that is by getting involved in political
10:39
processes and being advocates going and voting and then also
10:43
getting out the vote so that we look at it through a more
10:46
systemic lens now
10:47
before you justifiably criticize her. This you're right yeah, I
10:52
mean, you're absolutely this this is she has none of the
10:54
Greta hallmarks, but this is the intelligence version. This is
10:59
the deep state version. She's everywhere in all the right
11:04
places. This is this is Washington Post live
11:06
by the way that she does she does she I wonder if you can
11:12
catch her because she has short. She.
11:17
She used to see the TED Talk. And they've even dressed her.
11:22
She has big feet and that's kind of a downer for her big feet.
11:25
She got big feet and they put white white high heel pumps on
11:30
her
11:31
wrong wrong wrong wrong. Let me put a big clown foot on her
11:39
but she comes from greatest group Friday's for future she
11:44
also helped organize the 2019 Black Friday climate strike
11:48
they've been they've been working this girl for a long
11:50
time she's a national strategist for Friday's for future those
11:55
are the ones with zero hour that went into Nancy Pelosi is Office
12:01
extinct extinction extinction rebellion she's a part of all of
12:05
that and then she's pictures with
12:07
Nancy it makes sense. You want to put a spooky yes probably
12:10
smarter. She
12:11
is with Jane Fonda on the wiki page. No, no, no.
12:15
is a dossier creator. Yes, right and she's doing book on these
12:19
people. Yes, she do.
12:23
So anyway, I like me your credit is more organic down with that.
12:27
Absolutely. But
12:29
now matter this is not credit cannot be an adult along here
12:33
pushing
12:33
hard. She's like a miss Tennessee really. So she's more
12:38
or less I'd
12:39
rather her be like Miss South Carolina. And such.
12:44
I do have a cop 27 report which goes over some of the same
12:48
things today a historic
12:50
step forward and addressing the effects of climate change in the
12:52
developing world and agreement decades in the making a global
12:56
fund to compensate poor countries or climate disasters.
13:00
I hear no objections is so decided. Yes, thank you.
13:04
The Nations Climate Conference known as cop 27 in Sharm el
13:08
Sheikh Egypt, representatives from 200 countries worked into
13:11
the wee hours to reach the agreements. Details. dollar
13:14
figures are yet to be determined. Developed countries
13:17
like the US and the European Union and some international
13:20
financial institutions are expected to be contributors to
13:24
the so called loss and damage funds. Vulnerable nations like
13:27
Pakistan ravaged by deadly flooding this summer will be the
13:30
expected beneficiaries.
13:32
What it can do is provide the financial resources that
13:36
countries will need to rebuild after disasters to help those
13:41
who are migrating who are refugees to help with food
13:45
security challenges.
13:46
President Biden addressed the summit on Friday, we see
13:49
our mission to avert climate catastrophe, not only as an
13:53
imperative for our present and future, but through the eyes of
13:57
history
13:58
they had to you here they had to edit him even they took the
14:01
beginning of his sentence. Listen for
14:03
climate catastrophe, not only as an imperative for our president
14:07
jump in future, but through the eyes of history.
14:11
Oh, and another edit Oh, man, they have to do four edits for
14:14
15 seconds to us
14:16
and other rich countries had resisted the idea of a font for
14:19
years fearing they could be sued for climate disasters. The new
14:23
agreement takes away that potential legal liability show
14:26
of unique nations big and small to address a global crisis.
14:31
Suckers. Don't worry, you won't be able to sue us.
14:35
What was funny? Yes, cute. It was funny watching the show on
14:39
PBS because the first clips they showed of Egypt, which would be
14:43
one of the countries you know, not in Florida, though. Yeah, of
14:46
course. He had some great shots of mice smog, and it's like, do
14:53
it because you couldn't see across the street. Wow. But
14:58
yeah, what if he asked
15:00
Go because it's not lost on me that there's a lot of new world
15:02
order like conferences going on right now at the same time we
15:06
have the, of course cop 27 We have the G 20. In Indonesia or
15:12
if you're Indonesian, it's the B 20. What do those guys get off?
15:15
Why do they get to call B? 21? It's the G 20.
15:19
That because they own the venue, and they can change the signage.
15:23
By the
15:24
way, every single guy from Indonesia, all I can think is
15:27
Obama. It's really weird. Because he's from there. I mean,
15:32
basically, his dad is just they all look like Obama. And then
15:36
there's another one the let me see what do they call this
15:40
thing? The this is the hydrogen world. 2022. Now we've been
15:50
following
15:51
the hydrogen. Also some Russian thing is going on. Oh, I haven't
15:54
seen that. I don't know. But I think it Chinese event. But
15:57
anyway going. But there's a lot of events going on.
16:03
Gosh, that really triggers me when you say that. But then when
16:07
you know you when you say anyway, but go on or go ahead.
16:10
But anyway, go on. Yeah, because that's what Kara Swisher does
16:13
all the
16:14
time to come in without ever you watch that show. She probably
16:18
picked it up from me
16:19
telling you, I blame I blame her existence on you. You
16:25
think it's legit, it's very legit, which I think is very
16:28
legit. But anyway, go on.
16:32
You've got to listen to her do it. So we've been tracking the
16:37
hydrogen ever since we heard to Queen Ursula say hydro gene is a
16:40
future green hydro gene, that let's just review for a moment
16:44
what the green hydro gene is. That would be using renewable
16:50
few energy sources to create enough electrolysis to then have
16:57
hydrogen as the gas to put into into combustion engines.
17:02
This is that way it says just digging a hole in the ground and
17:05
pulling out free energy. Yes, correct. You know, boiling it
17:09
for a minute or two take to you know, break it up. So you can
17:12
use it for different things or paint out of it. Everything
17:15
else. Let's don't do that.
17:16
And really, right now, the only sources like nuclear energy is
17:20
the only one that really applies because the windmills and the
17:24
you can't do this off a battery charge I think is the general
17:27
idea and the whole green energy, according to everybody in their
17:32
own documents everywhere. We're at least a decade out. Would you
17:35
say that's fair, at least a decade, maybe two decades?
17:39
Before it but
17:39
we're decade out? I think we're we've been at perpetually a
17:43
decade out
17:44
of you. Well, yeah, exactly. Because it's very expensive to
17:47
do it. Because you have to exactly you gotta you got to
17:50
generate a lot of electricity. And the only way to do it is,
17:53
you know, the traditional ways coal gas, or nuclear. So it's
17:58
dumb. It's so dumb, as you said, why not just get the free energy
18:02
out of the ground? No, we can't do that. So here is my boy,
18:06
France. Timmermans. He is the architect, the Executive Vice
18:09
President of the European Commission. For climate change,
18:13
he is the guy behind the Green Deal in Europe, the initial half
18:18
a half of about 500 billion euros already ready to be spent.
18:23
And he did a promo for the next event. So I just took his little
18:28
sound bites out. So it's a little bit out of context, but
18:31
you'll you'll hear how full of crap they are. And and this is
18:36
the guy who's supposed to save us before 2030 shillings
18:40
something that it won't be done at least until 10 years from
18:44
now,
18:44
hydrogen has a huge future. Our economy will be based on
18:48
hydrogen. So we need to really quickly make sure we have the
18:52
right capacity to produce enough hydrogen fourthly, well, I think
18:55
the first priority is to make sure we have enough electricity
18:57
and green electricity so that we can actually power the
19:00
electrolyzers. The second priority is to build enough
19:02
electrolyzers. And the third priority is to create the grid
19:05
so we can get the hydrogen. Well, I mean, ports have always
19:09
been essential in commodities, this is a new commodity. This is
19:13
a commodity of the future. And ports should concentrate on
19:17
affording the investment to make sure these commodities can be
19:21
part of their economic model, especially because everyone
19:24
involved in the hydrogen economy is now coming together. And so
19:27
instead of staying in their own little corner, they're trying to
19:29
make connections across the board. And that's exactly what
19:32
we need to be successful. Well, I think the most important thing
19:35
is to take this message to the public, so that the public
19:38
understand that hydrogen is the energy carrier the future
19:42
dude, they just did a switch on us. It was all electric electric
19:48
electric gear grid, DC grid. Now he wants a hydrogen grid. This
19:53
is this was not sold to us.
19:57
You know, I was thinking about this as listening to that clip.
20:00
And listening to you. We've known about this you brought
20:04
out, queen, Ursula introducing it. But where did this really
20:09
stem from? Because I've been hearing about the hydrogen
20:12
economy on and off. And, and it's always been kind of lurking
20:15
in the background when they talk about wind power and solar, wind
20:19
and solar, and clean energy. And then hydrogen shows up. Where
20:24
did this jet? Where did it what's the Genesis? Is somebody
20:27
out there has to do a little research and send me a memo.
20:31
What's the genesis of this? When did this first was in the 20s?
20:36
Was it in the 50s? Where Where did this come from? And why and
20:39
how and why now?
20:41
Well, if I were a scheming kind of guy, I'd think, Hey, we've
20:46
been running this wind and solar thing for a while boys is
20:51
running a little dry. We're not,
20:54
we're not told totally running dry,
20:57
dry. I'm getting tired of saying Ilan is going to make better
21:00
batteries. So I have a plan. Let's just say that with this
21:05
stuff that we've created already successfully, you can see it
21:09
that we're going to make a hydrogen economy from that. And
21:13
then it'll give us another 10 years to get
21:16
this thing. Yeah, the whole thing began I remember this is
21:20
at least worth 15 years ago or so is during the beginning of
21:24
the show, when the What the heck, what are the Zephyrs going
21:29
by at this late hour? Oh, my goodness. Oh, my God.
21:36
Give me a count. Seven, seven cars so steady as she goes into
21:42
the abyss?
21:43
Yes, pretty much. So it just be the beginning of the show. I
21:47
went and test drove a bunch of these cars, fuel cell cars,
21:52
right? They're all fuel cells.
21:53
When did you when did you test drive them? About 15 1015 years
21:58
ago is during the years just the beginning of the show, I was
22:01
given an invite to come over to do the track. Not only fields
22:05
explain what
22:05
a fuel is explained the different versions of hydrogen
22:08
for propulsion.
22:10
There's two versions once a fuel cell which was a big deal. And a
22:15
fuel cell is this little cell it was invented. And the all these
22:18
technologies were invented in the 1800s, which always have to
22:21
remember that and batteries were not only invented but perfected.
22:25
And pretty much the technology we use today is all old
22:28
technology, because there's they were jacked up about batteries
22:32
back in the day, and they did everything they could. Now now
22:36
every day we get a new membrane, we can use it as best we can do
22:39
is tweak it. But anyway, so this fuel cells, which is an old
22:43
technology, the hydrogen goes through this through this
22:48
membrane and some other things. I don't mean, absolutely sure
22:51
how it works. But it turns the hydrogen going through this, in
22:56
this process into electricity and electricity drives the car.
23:00
And then that's one technology. And that's the one I tested. And
23:03
those are the ones that I talked about this on the show before
23:06
that when you punch it really floor it Yeah, they scream
23:10
in a good way, but isn't a good way. Like it's cool.
23:15
I don't know that it's a good way or not. It's just they're
23:17
screaming there. They make a racket, but it's a screaming
23:20
sound. It's like, I think it's annoying personally. And then
23:26
the other one, which is what they're headed toward now is the
23:29
is the hydrogen combustion engine. Yeah. Which is worse
23:33
like a gas engine. And it's just the hydrogen is used as the
23:36
fuel. And that's the one that are one of our producers who had
23:40
one of these cars, embers made by Toyota made both the fuel
23:43
cells and they made these other ones where you punch it, and a
23:46
bunch of water flies out the exhaust pipe. And funny and
23:55
was sued soon, soon to be augmented with some wisdom. A
23:59
hog urine, dog gotta have bad blue or that hydrogen. I think
24:03
it's true. Actually, I think there's something else that
24:05
comes out
24:07
every day claim according to the um, it's hard to keep up with
24:11
this because it's been dragging along, starting with the fuel
24:15
cells, which weren't going to work. Because they weren't that
24:18
you know, there was I drove seven or eight cars with fuel
24:21
cells in them. And they'd make too much noise. A screaming
24:26
sound is just annoying. They don't really have the torque of
24:33
just a battery electric car, which you can really get out of
24:36
there. I don't know. I mean, the whole thing seems like it just
24:43
showed up 1015 years ago, and they were they've been dicking
24:46
around with it and dicking around with it. They're trying
24:49
to promote it. They said well, you know, one good thing is you
24:51
can put an airplane you can run an airplane on hydrogen. You
24:54
can't do that with a battery. No, at least not for more than
24:57
15 minutes.
24:58
But what's okay so I I can totally see where the hydrogen
25:02
guys which wouldn't that be basically Big Oil. The hydrogen
25:07
hydrogen guys went in, we're gonna push back against this
25:10
electrical bull crap 15 years ago would make sense. And then
25:13
they killed it or got killed and now they're coming back because
25:17
they see that you know it's dry. And I think that's why you see a
25:22
France Timmermans switching because I can pull up clips from
25:26
when he first came out with this, which is gonna be three
25:29
years ago, I should do that. And he's there's no mention of
25:32
hydrogen, green hydrogen. No. It's all new. So they so I think
25:38
everyone remember
25:39
when it first showed up? It was like the hydrogen economy. We
25:42
heard that, that we paid. I don't think we paid much
25:45
attention to it either. And then all of a sudden, they've just
25:48
turned on on the spigot. This is very fishy to me. Yeah,
25:53
hydrogen, it was never even during the fuel cell era, which
25:56
was really popular for about a year they're talking about fuel
25:59
cells. They only talked about in when I went to this meeting, all
26:03
they talked about was how much hydrogen can you get a tank and
26:06
what happens if it blows 10,000 Square 10,000 pounds per square
26:12
inch? You have to get that much hydrogen in the tank is still
26:15
not enough. And the tanks are under your seat, you know, and
26:18
what are you going to happen to the thing blows and now we got
26:21
these new tank technologies. That's all I talked about was
26:23
the tanks and the storage of the hydrogen. And what we get get
26:28
hit by a truck. What happened?
26:30
Are you a Pinto on steroids? And
26:33
then they claim that no, these tanks are bulletproof kind of
26:36
thing. And I don't know. I just find the whole thing peculiar,
26:40
peculiar. And I'd like to know that I still like to know the
26:42
Genesis. Oh, you
26:43
were you, John at the vorak.org You're gonna get message? Yes.
26:46
john@divorce.org.
26:47
I mean, what, you know, we have the best best producers for
26:50
stuff. We have somebody out to the nose. The whole thing is
26:52
he's right now he's rolling his eyes going, these guys are dumb.
26:59
He's doing Yeah, that pretty much. We're used to it. No
27:03
worries, we appreciate it. So then we had the big G 20. B 20,
27:08
as you will, and the White House published on whitehouse.gov. The
27:14
22 page document g 20. Bali leaders declaration. And this
27:19
has caused a little bit of consternation, I think people
27:22
are looking at the wrong thing. But I'd like to just I actually,
27:28
I printed out the document and just highlighted a couple
27:30
things. So you want to go through that just a couple of
27:33
these. Because what it tells us is how they're thinking, I don't
27:36
know if they're gonna do it all. But this is what came out of
27:40
this whole this whole big meeting. And what really became
27:43
apparent to me is, it's like climate change that has so many
27:47
committees and sub units and steering committees and, and
27:52
boards of important people and leadership, stuff it all this
27:57
money is just flowing all over the place. And everyone's just
28:02
trying to represent I think their own commercial interests,
28:04
which is why a lot of this won't come to fruition. But this is
28:07
this is just short clip of the Health Minister of Indonesia.
28:10
And he kind of set the tone for one of the major agreements in
28:13
the Bali, g 20. Bali leaders declaration.
28:17
So let's have a digital health certificate, acknowledged by
28:21
who, if you have been vaccinated or tested properly, then you can
28:28
move around. So for the next pandemic, instead of stopping
28:32
the movement of the people 100% riskless the economy globally,
28:37
you know, you can still provide some movement of the people
28:41
Indonesia has achieved. G 20 country has agree to have this
28:46
digital certificate using who standard and we will submit into
28:51
the next World Health Assembly in Geneva as the revisions to
28:56
international health regulation. So hopefully for the next
28:59
pandemic, we can still see some movement of the people some
29:04
movement of the goods and movement of the economy
29:07
for the next pandemic, like that happens just every year.
29:14
Well, they've tried to make it happen more than it actually
29:17
happens. Yeah, that's true. But it happens about once every 100
29:21
years. Yeah,
29:21
but he's for the next pandemic. We need vaccine passports and of
29:25
course,
29:26
to bring this up
29:30
well, so we'll get to it in this document but the vaccine
29:34
passports they all agree that this needs to happen but they're
29:37
all saying we need to have a global standard which to me
29:41
means okay by design. IBM wants to be the global standard
29:47
Microsoft wants to be the global standard I'm sure China has
29:50
God there's thank God nobody can agree on the global no
29:53
interrupt.
29:54
Yes, exactly. Thank God for patents. Really. Thank God for
29:58
that. It's going to save us because everyone and wants to.
30:00
And they also had a patent discussion at at the at the G
30:04
20. So, but that, I think is a red herring because this
30:07
document is not so much about vaccines as about food. The
30:13
thing is, is really about food, and finance. And they start off
30:20
by just marking what this is about 14 years ago, the leaders
30:23
of the G 20 met for the first time facing the most severe
30:26
financial crisis in our generation, like, hey, and we're
30:30
back again. And now we've got serious global economic
30:33
challenges. So they're not talking about economic
30:36
challenges, and that these have hindered the achievement of the
30:41
Sustainable Development Goals. None of anyone's ever read the
30:46
Sustainable Development Goal goals, and we've discussed it
30:48
from time to time. But they're insane. Wouldn't you agree?
30:56
These people are insane.
30:59
This year, we have also witnessed the war in Ukraine
31:01
further adversely impact the global economy. There was a
31:05
discussion on this issue. But there was most members strongly
31:10
condemned the war in Ukraine and stressful I
31:13
condemn the war. Can they do does anyone bring up the fact
31:17
that the United Nations was set up, you know, what, 70 years ago
31:21
to prevent this sort of thing from happening? And then when it
31:23
happens? They did. Absolutely nothing seems to be done about
31:27
it, or can be done about it. So the whole thing was a sham
31:31
that might have been in the discussion portion of the
31:33
agenda. I didn't put it in the report. But of course, it's
31:38
besides human suffering and exacerbating existing
31:41
fragilities in the global economy. It's constraining
31:43
growth, it's increasing inflation. It's disrupting,
31:46
disrupting supply chains, heightening energy and food
31:49
insecurity, elevating financial stability risks, I mean, that
31:52
Putin, that Putin, so they have a new slogan, a build back,
31:58
better is out. And they did not, they did not consult the curry
32:03
Devorah Consulting Group. Their new slogan is recovered together
32:08
recover stronger.
32:10
Oh my God.
32:13
What a piece of crap that is, huh.
32:16
Oh, man, that's terrible.
32:19
I don't understand how bad they can do the ZIL
32:22
bag better was better. They could have gone to build back
32:26
better better. And I would have been better than that.
32:30
So they have three points here that they're going to do to
32:33
recover together and stronger. They aren't sure. They will
32:36
ensure long term fiscal sustainability with our central
32:40
banks committed to achieving price stability. That's what I
32:45
said. They will protect macro economic and financial stability
32:50
and remain committed to using all available tools to mitigate
32:53
downside risk, noting the steps taken since the global financial
32:57
crisis to strengthen financial resilience and promote
33:00
sustainable finance and capital flows. I think that means print
33:05
money. And the third one, take action to promote food and
33:10
energy security and support stability of markets. And they
33:15
intend to do this by providing temporary and targeted support
33:20
to cushion the impact of price increases, strengthening the
33:25
dialogue between producers and consumers. A you shitheads are
33:29
ripping us off. I think that's what they mean. increasing trade
33:33
and investment for long term food and energy security needs.
33:36
Blah, blah. Oh, yeah, sustainable food. Why
33:38
do I even have these meetings? For the drinking?
33:41
I get Yes. For the drink for the drinking
33:44
isn't nice bars. They're
33:48
in Egypt? No. Indonesia. I
33:51
mean, have you visited Bali?
33:52
Have you been to Bali?
33:54
I haven't been to Bali, but I've been to Jakarta. And I've been
33:56
to the bars. They're they're dynamite which is interesting.
33:58
It's a Muslim country. So one of the as the Muslims would say,
34:02
we're Muslims who drink and they drink. Drink a lot.
34:07
We will take further coordinated actions to address food security
34:10
challenges, including price surges and shortages or feud for
34:13
food, commodities and fertilizers globally. They're
34:17
basically saying, Look, we're going to have to pay for it.
34:22
Because our people are going to starve.
34:24
It's it's just another attempt to gouge the American taxpayer.
34:28
Yeah,
34:28
I would say so. Then,
34:31
he turned around all these meetings are about nothing more
34:34
than trying to gouge the American taxpayer and he had the
34:38
dopes like Biden in there giving away money.
34:41
Now, we've heard about the Black Sea grain initiative. This is
34:47
the grain shipments that there was some negotiation about.
34:51
Wasn't that just an initiative to make sure that the ships get
34:54
through the Black Sea without getting blowed up?
34:57
Yeah, but but this was a negotiation with Russia. Yeah,
35:01
it's very interesting. And they of course, they this was a tour
35:06
Ke and UN brokered Istanbul agreement that put the Black Sea
35:11
grain initiative into place. So Turkey a has some hand in this.
35:17
I'm not sure how exactly, they will continue to strengthen the
35:21
agricultural market information systems as an early warning tool
35:26
to enhance food and fertilizer inputs, market transparency, and
35:30
reduce certain market uncertainty, so I guess they're
35:32
gonna have an IT solution to this, somehow monitoring the
35:38
cows
35:38
more you go into this, that's stupid, or it sounds, we are
35:42
just a bunch of what is this they go on. It's just a bunch of
35:45
virtue signaling in the in the of the highest order. We're
35:49
going to do this, we're going to do that. And we're going to make
35:51
sure this works. And we're going to make sure that works. And
35:54
we're going to do this and we're going to ensure this we're going
35:56
to ensure that we can't do jack, we
35:59
have a new slogan, as we welcome the progress to date towards
36:03
achieving a post 2020 global biodiversity framework. Hello,
36:08
biodiversity back on deck. I mean, we've had the jingle for
36:12
what a decade and the initiative is 2050 vision of living in
36:22
harmony with nature, as 30% of all land and all sea must be
36:29
returned to the biodiversity framework. So that by 2030, so
36:37
that they are protected 30% of the ocean. That's do they
36:43
realize how big that is? I think that's rather big. Then we have
36:48
we recognize this is the interesting part here. We're
36:51
getting to the end, we recognize
36:52
that Wait, do they ever in their suggests planting a tree?
36:56
No, no, I was not able to find tree planting that think that
37:00
went away of the battery guy
37:02
saying that would be something you'd want to encourage. But
37:05
they already did that with a trillion tree initiative and it
37:08
was a dud. We recognize that the extensive COVID-19 immunization
37:14
is a global public good. And we will advance our effort to
37:18
ensure timely, equitable and universal access to safe
37:21
affordable quality and effective vaccines therapeutics and
37:25
diagnostics. Is the word safe and effective in there. Yeah.
37:28
safe, affordable quality and effective. safe, affordable.
37:33
Okay. added a couple of shows a fight so they have so Pfizer was
37:38
represented at the Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, of course. Of course, I'll
37:42
be more than once.
37:43
They will also continue with global pathogen surveillance.
37:47
We, but but just just so we can
37:50
clear here anything about about various state actors, creating
37:55
labs that develop some of these pathogens, for bio warfare
38:01
purposes, and maybe should be abolished? Was that in there?
38:04
I think that falls under the global pathogen surveillance.
38:09
That's going to fund more of that. But please take note they
38:12
say we recognize that the extensive COVID-19
38:15
immunizations, the global public good bullshit. You don't get to
38:20
recognize that when Al Roker has blood clots in his legs in his
38:23
lungs. Poor owl. No.
38:26
I know Al Roker had all these blood clots. Yeah, it's
38:29
brand new. He's been he's been off the show for two weeks in
38:32
the hospital. Yep, yep. He is, of course, a triple. I had a
38:37
dream of going triple three and three. You had a dream.
38:42
I had a dream that Schwarzenegger died and it was
38:47
somehow related to the VAX. Really, out of the blue is
38:51
crazy. I woke up with a Schwarzenegger is dead.
38:54
This would be the best read book entry ever. I mean, this would
38:58
be
38:58
a hell of a call director for r&d. But
39:02
now we support the World Health Organization mRNA vaccine
39:09
technology transfer hub, as well as all the spokes in all regions
39:14
of the world with the objective of sharing technology and
39:17
technical note.
39:18
So this entire G 20 has been co opted by this bullshit. Oh,
39:22
yeah. Oh, yeah. We goalie macro that day. You Buje Have you
39:26
buried the lede? Here? No, I
39:28
was leading up to it. It's called a tension arc. We we
39:35
acknowledged the importance of shared technical standards and
39:39
verification methods under the framework of the International
39:42
Health Regulations. 2005, which is what you just heard the
39:45
Health Minister refer to to facilitate seamless
39:49
international travel, interoperability, and
39:53
recognizing digital solutions and non digital solutions,
39:57
including proof of vaccinations. So they support proof of
40:02
vaccination for travel. We support continued international
40:06
dialogue and collaboration on the establishment of trusted
40:09
global digital health networks. As part of the efforts to
40:13
strengthen prevention and response to future pandemics,
40:16
the next one, that you capitalize and build on the
40:19
success, the success of the existing standards and digital
40:24
COVID-19 certificates. It was so successful for them apparently.
40:33
The COVID 19 pandemic has accelerated the transformation
40:38
of the digital eco system, of course, they would say,
40:42
ecosystem and digital economy. Now, John, I don't understand.
40:48
Were you provided with a memo about said digital
40:53
transformation? Joe? Well, it's been, it's been accelerated. And
41:04
we recognize the importance importance of digital
41:07
transformation in reaching the sustainable development goals.
41:12
We acknowledged that affordable and high quality digital
41:14
conductivity is essential for digital inclusion and digital
41:17
transformation. And there was anything in
41:19
there about chipping chipping, chipping the humans, well, in a
41:23
way ship in the palm, so you can use that instead of your credit
41:26
card. That's a
41:27
good Well, we continue that we support continued implementation
41:31
of the G 20 roadmap for enhancing cross border payments.
41:37
We encourage central banks and other public authorities and
41:39
payment industries to continue to work collaboratively on these
41:42
important initiatives to enhance cross border payments. And we
41:47
also welcome the joint report by the Bank of International
41:50
Settlements, International Monetary Fund and the World Bank
41:53
on options for access to an interoperability of the central
41:57
bank digital currencies for cross border payments. stuff,
42:02
there's never going to appear. There's no evidence that will
42:04
ever appear. Let me see temporary targeted measures to
42:10
help sustaining the purchasing power of the most vulnerable and
42:13
cushioning the impact of commodity prices. So they're
42:15
going to inject money. Recognizing that many currencies
42:18
have moved significantly this year, with increased volatility.
42:21
We reaffirm certainly the FTT token was volatile. We
42:26
reaffirmed the commitments made on exchange rates by our finance
42:30
ministers and central bank governors in April of 2021. What
42:33
was that? Did they agree to fix the exchange rates?
42:41
That's what they always do fix it while they're fixing it.
42:45
And let's see, was there anything else
42:47
six? And as in rigged? Yeah,
42:49
we look forward to further progress by the IMF and
42:52
operationalizing, the integrated policy framework with the Bank
42:56
of International Settlements for continued exploration of CBDCs.
43:00
Okay, you've gotten too long, Special Drawing Rights,
43:02
Financial Stability Board, a global stable coin. Yep. I mean,
43:06
I just I just need to let you know that it's all in there. And
43:11
I think along with the along with that would go Hold on a
43:16
second, whereas it would go this little ditty from CNBC.
43:22
This is a visa the CEO of visa stepping down. And so they had
43:27
the new CEO, he's 65. He's done. They have the new CEO coming in,
43:31
and they were talking on CNBC, about the future of visa. One
43:35
good thing that comes out of this, just coincidentally, FTX
43:38
disaster for their investors and their employees, is that we see
43:43
an acceleration towards regulation, and leading into
43:46
good, stable coin regulation, because I think that that is
43:51
what's necessary to build back confidence for people. And we'll
43:54
see over time we are setting up for the reality of crypto
43:58
potentially having a role in payments and money movement. You
44:03
know, we don't pick winners and losers, we ultimately let the
44:05
consumer and the experience decide. But we're creating on
44:09
and off ramps for crypto players putting these cards in wallets
44:12
being able to convert this stable coin to a fiat currency
44:15
and be able to use their visa card to shop anywhere they want
44:18
to shop. We're even working on being able to settle with a
44:22
merchant at the end of the day who wants to get settled in a
44:25
stable coin versus settled in currency. So we'll see what
44:29
happens over time. But I hope this terrible event forces a
44:35
more acceleration in regulation.
44:37
But Ryan, to the extent this is going to evolve under your
44:40
leadership in a significant way when it comes to stable coins.
44:42
For example, if visa is offering it as an option, are we assuming
44:47
the customer assume you've done the due diligence to make sure
44:49
for example, that everything in reserve is what they say it is?
44:52
Yes. Regulations key. I think we can all agree on that. Hopefully
44:56
it accelerates. We want to be involved in any way that people
44:59
want to pay and be paid. and extensive stable coins are a
45:02
great way to do that in a well regulated environment and, you
45:05
know, to businesses want to engage in cross border payments
45:08
using stable coins. Yeah, we want to be involved in that. And
45:10
we want to help and we only get involved in things where our
45:13
brand is going to ensure that people ensure that it's safe.
45:16
It's secure. And it's also easy. I don't know there's something
45:19
going on. Those are those are big networks talking
45:23
about stuff. So I don't know what's going on
45:27
that there is a great a great story out about FTX. This This
45:33
was I'll just give you the highlights because blowing my
45:35
mind. So FTX apparently this money laundering operation has
45:41
just been sending money everywhere they can for any kind
45:44
of edge, certainly for buying up regular companies that have
45:49
regulation. I think we talked about that, you know, the by 10%
45:53
here by a whole company there and they put it under the
45:56
heading of $2 billion of compliance acquisition or
45:59
regulatory acquisitions, just to get right regulatory paperwork.
46:04
Yeah. But now this came from the brownstone Institute. Early this
46:11
year, the New York Times trumpeted a study that showed no
46:14
benefit at all to the use of ivermectin. It was definitive.
46:22
But who funded this study, and it's right there on the on the
46:25
study page. It was funded by FTX. And FTX is all over
46:31
debunking and getting rid of ivermectin paying, they're
46:36
paying for these studies.
46:40
This takes it to a ha, that's pretty rare. So in other words,
46:42
there's some some Pfizer angle here who knows it takes it to
46:46
herself some angle to some pharma angle, because probably
46:52
will just reiterate, the problem with ivermectin is that there's
46:55
plenty of studies that show that it's very effective in reducing
46:58
this and that, yeah. But the problem with ivermectin as we
47:02
always have to get back to its cost like a nickel a pill. Yes.
47:06
opposed to five bucks, and or 10. And so ivermectin is no
47:11
good. It couldn't be even considered because it's too
47:14
cheap. And this, the entire medical system in this country
47:18
is completely corrupted.
47:20
Now, it's. And of course, I took ivermectin twice. I don't know
47:26
if, if it helped if it may be better, but I certainly didn't
47:28
die. I didn't have to go to the hospital. So I felt good about
47:31
it. Its use is for COVID-19 would be off label. And this is
47:37
what the medical establishment used to say, Well, no, you can't
47:41
prescribe that. The even even more egregious is that the CDC
47:48
and as the CDC is now saying, Hey, we didn't tell you that you
47:53
couldn't take ivermectin it was just a recommendation. These
47:57
eight holes are trying to trying to backpedal on that. But of
48:00
course, the the FDA was really the one that went after you
48:05
know, went after the medical boards and, and created this,
48:08
you can't do it because for the very reasons you just mentioned.
48:12
It's it's too cheap to be made generically. But again, it's an
48:17
off label use and no off label is
48:19
no it's too cheap to be used that right to be made
48:23
generically to be used by to
48:24
be I'm sorry to be sold. Yeah, exactly. Because then anybody
48:27
could sell it for pennies. And but, you know, off label use,
48:32
even the hormone blockers that you're giving to children are an
48:37
off label use of a different drug. Yeah, that's
48:40
a good point.
48:42
And there's there is an I caught this and I think I mentioned it
48:46
because I heard it in the ad. I said something's going on with
48:49
this. I was singing the jingle. And that's why I noticed that
48:52
they had added language to the commercials singing what
48:55
jingle Oh
48:57
ozempic This
48:58
is something a medical headline. This is something you talked
49:01
about this particular drug, there's a shortage of it because
49:04
people are using it for reasons it wasn't meant to be used.
49:07
And it's getting a whole a lot of attention. TJs I wanted to
49:10
break it down. This is a drug called ozempic. This is a drug
49:14
to treat type two diabetes, but the class the generic version,
49:18
the class known as semaglutide got an FDA approval for weight
49:22
loss and now the demand is going through the roof. This drug
49:26
works by helping to control blood sugar, but it also slows
49:29
the emptying of the food in the stomach and so it drops people's
49:33
appetite dramatically. People are losing a lot of weight. On
49:37
this of course, like many drugs, it's being used on label as well
49:41
as off label. Typically people start with a low dose injection
49:45
once a week and then go up slightly in dosage. Like any
49:50
drug it can have some side effects mild gi side effects
49:53
like nausea, vomiting, but incredibly effective for
49:57
treating the conditions of overweight and obesity. It It
50:00
comes with a major price tag up to 800 or even over $1,000 a
50:05
month if it's not covered by insurance. I do have patients
50:09
whose insurance cover it and then it can be $25 a month but
50:12
everyone is trying to get their hands on this drug right now.
50:15
So nice add Dr. Jin. It's effective minor side effects.
50:20
It's all good. Yeah, it's expensive. But hey, man,
50:24
everyone that get their hands on how the cool kids are doing this
50:27
drug. And this is the solution to America's problem. Don't
50:32
worry about eating healthier, keep eating the garbage and just
50:36
take your shot every week. And it's amazing. It's amazing. Now
50:41
listen to the commercial.
50:42
Oh.
50:45
People with type two diabetes are excited about the potential
50:48
of once weekly ozempic. In a study with ozempic a majority of
50:52
adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an A one c is less
50:54
than seven and maintained. Oh, under seven and you may lose
50:59
weight. In the same one year study adults lost on average up
51:02
to 12 pounds. Oh, just well. A two year study showed that
51:05
ozempic Just not increased the risk of major cardiovascular
51:08
events like heart attack, stroke or death. Oh no increased risk
51:12
ozempic should not be the first medicine for treating diabetes
51:15
or for people with type one diabetes or diabetic
51:18
ketoacidosis do not share needles or pens.
51:21
Don't reuse needles.
51:22
Do not take ozempic If you have a personal or family history of
51:25
medullary thyroid cancer Oh multiple endocrine neoplasia
51:28
syndrome type two or if you are allergic to ozone, okay, stop
51:31
taking those and they can get medical help right away if you
51:34
get a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach
51:36
pain Fetterman Fetterman, probably
51:40
serious side effects may happen including pancreatitis.
51:43
Oh your doctor. Dr. Jen didn't tell me about pancreatitis or
51:46
the lump in my neck, you
51:47
have diabetic retinopathy.
51:50
Taking those Empik with a sulfonylurea or insulin may
51:53
increase the risk for low blood sugar. A common side effects are
51:56
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain and constipation.
51:59
Some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may worsen
52:02
kidney problems. Oh, I discovered the potential with
52:05
ozempic.
52:09
Eligible you may
52:10
pay as little as $25 per prescription. Ask your
52:13
healthcare provider today about once weekly ozempic.
52:16
There's your $25 So they got some some vibe going a lot of
52:20
these companies will will give a salad to you if you're right to
52:23
them. And I think you have to give blood every every week. Do
52:27
some experiments, but you get it. So this is how sick these
52:30
people are. Oh, we can sell it for $1,000 a month. Now it's
52:36
what let's get some approval off label. It's a mat. It's a
52:39
miracle. Shame on these horrible people
52:44
that the whole medical establishment is corrupted. And
52:46
it's it's unbelievable. This is
52:48
what kills me. We've had admitted vaccinations out there
52:55
for billions of people admitted not effective. Possibly not
53:00
safe. That isn't completely admitted by all of the powers
53:04
that be but there certainly were a lot of mistakes made and a lot
53:09
of oh, we're sorry and no well, okay and, and now Pfizer and
53:13
moderna, whoa, we gotta go to Purdue who's gonna do some
53:15
investigation on this myocarditis thing? Nobody,
53:18
nobody gets in trouble. Nobody goes to jail. But Steve Jobs
53:24
check
53:24
tonight the founder of the failed blood testing company.
53:27
Theranos has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison.
53:30
Elizabeth Holmes was convicted of fraud and conspiracy earlier
53:34
this year for misleading investors and endangering
53:37
patients with a bogus blood testing technology Holmes now 38
53:41
and expecting her second child had requested home confinement.
53:45
Yeah, who endangered who in the last five years? Yeah.
53:51
Well, if you're gonna go for relativism, I think you made you
53:53
made a point. Yeah, but it's good to at least caught someone.
53:58
This is the new Martha Stewart. You know, it's the she's the
54:01
market. She's sort of
54:02
our money. This girl is a little bit off the golfer rocker.
54:06
But the thing is, she's going to jail for 11 years because a
54:09
bunch of so called Smart old horny dudes fell for it.
54:13
Oh, I know. There's no excuse for that part of it. No, George
54:18
Shultz and all a bunch of these guys. A whole slew of I do
54:21
everything Mad. Mad Dog Mattis. Oh, man, my favorite. Yeah, Mad
54:26
Dog Mattis, the guy who turned on Trump. When he was he was the
54:30
head of the Defense Department at that time. He was the head of
54:34
Trump's staff. He was the EU
54:37
national Oh yeah. Oh, yes. Where he was.
54:39
And then he wanted a very Oh, well, you know, I'm gonna go
54:43
make some money. You write a book?
54:45
I said Steve chaff. I thought that was funny. I missed it.
54:48
Yeah, sorry.
54:50
Yeah, everything under under homes.
54:52
Well, let me see. Do you have a homes thing? Looking for homes?
54:55
We are searching? Yes, Liz home sentence PBS 231. Bye
54:59
for now. or Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes was sentenced
55:02
today to 135 months in federal prison more than 11 years. The
55:07
penalty was imposed at a hearing in San Jose California, homes
55:11
had been convicted of investor fraud and conspiracy for duping
55:15
investors about bogus blood testing technology. The company
55:18
collapsed in 2018 for duping
55:21
investors, literally for duping investors.
55:26
And you know, the what is the point is, by the way, Judy's
55:29
leaving. Yes. And the show is really deteriorating. And this
55:34
woman who is the new anchor, I was listening to her. Judy
55:38
always had a very professional sounding broadcasting voice.
55:43
This woman doesn't and what is the point of saying 135 months?
55:48
I thought that was interesting.
55:51
I don't know
55:52
about it. I want you to do it in in minutes or hours. I mean, it
55:58
doesn't make any sense is it the number is too high to be using
56:01
months you know, billion seconds, you know, I mean, it's
56:05
just dumb.
56:07
Yeah, that's filler. It's just bad writing. How about that bad
56:11
writing was chocolate well
56:13
they have a lot of bad writers in this show. And then they've
56:15
got a couple of clips from this. I've been getting the news our
56:18
stuff I don't like going back to it all right. Attorney General
56:24
non political BS listen to this
56:28
by a significant person in American life and American
56:32
political life okay.
56:34
Back it off I gotta get a premise this this is a setup so
56:37
this new girl she goes in she does K part and
56:42
new girl on PBS Do we have a new girl?
56:45
I can't remember her name is something is named as a
56:48
forgettable name because it's like it's it's a it's one of
56:52
these ethnic names that is just very hard to remember
56:55
new girl on OBS is the search term let's see how we do no bad
57:00
bad bad bad. Okay, keep going.
57:03
So K part in this dad, some other guy from The Washington
57:06
Post on there instead of the they gotta get rid of this
57:09
segment, especially with this K part guy. That guy is just a
57:12
stooge. Listen to K part. Who was K Pro? I don't know who K
57:16
part is a part. We've talked about him before. He's the gay
57:19
columnist for the Washington Post and black is very affected.
57:24
And he's he's always rolling his eyes and he's always a super
57:28
Trump hater and everything that we're Democrats do is fabulous.
57:32
And Sam not
57:34
Nawaz. Yeah, how
57:36
am I supposed to remember that?
57:37
That's a bad name. She should have changed it for the show.
57:40
Like you know, Annie Oakley
57:42
says bad name is period. So let's go to que parte on Pelosi.
57:47
And this is an example of what I'm talking about. Listen to
57:51
this. They talked about Pelosi Jr. She's quitting. She's not
57:55
going to be in a leadership role anymore. And, and so they throw
57:58
this around about what what do you think about that? And, and
58:01
key part says the following
58:03
by a significant person in American life and American
58:07
political life, a former president who just announced
58:10
he's seeking the Republican nomination
58:13
on Pelosi.
58:15
I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I thought you were setting up this
58:18
clip. Where is key part where his key port on Pelosi
58:26
should say key part on Pelosi? Hero?
58:29
I hear you. I don't see it. This is embarrassing.
58:37
I use doing a search for it.
58:39
While I'm going. I'm going to now. I mean, it's not like you
58:41
have a whole bunch of clips. We're going to cut all this out,
58:44
by the way, set a marker Capehart. Is
58:48
he or now I
58:49
didn't know the guy's name. I was looking under K. Oh, sorry.
58:54
All right. So here's the guy's answer. Let me
58:57
deal with Speaker Pelosi. First. I agree with President Biden
59:01
when he said that she was quote, the most consequential speaker
59:05
in history. And there's no denying that if you look at what
59:08
she has been able to do as Speaker of the House, most
59:11
notably getting the Affordable Care Act passed through the
59:15
house without a single Republican vote.
59:19
She did that.
59:22
Yeah. Okay. They had a house they had a majority. That was
59:26
huge majority. You had every majority during the Obama era.
59:30
And she passed this thing with not what she couldn't get one
59:34
Republican. What kind of a great speaker of the house is this?
59:38
When you go across the aisle? This is
59:40
great. This is the difference in reporting. You could report the
59:43
story as she got it passed without any of those idiot
59:48
Republicans or she got it passed and no one else wanted. That
59:55
means this so there's different ways of reporting it. This is
59:57
obviously
59:58
their own party to vote. Honor, without so they can get one
1:00:02
Republican vote, because they didn't like various aspects of
1:00:07
it. And so she forced it through on her own, with a huge majority
1:00:10
of her own party. This is not a great speaker of the house. This
1:00:14
woman is a catastrophe. She didn't. And by the way, that's
1:00:18
the only thing he can cite about her greatness. She was Speaker
1:00:22
of the House what, twice now? And she's accomplished nothing.
1:00:26
And she's hateful. She's mean spirited. We have all kinds of
1:00:29
great clips of her just being a jerk back 20 years ago. It's
1:00:34
ridiculous. Therefore, she says Capehart guy, he's just an
1:00:37
apologist for the Democrats. He's a horrible, they shouldn't
1:00:41
have this segment anymore. PBS is shot.
1:00:45
She shall be known as Nancy the uniter. Go get something like
1:00:53
that. I'm telling you, they'll do something. Right here. That's
1:00:56
how you do it. How the United Nancy Nancy Pelosi was she was
1:00:59
the great uniter of our age.
1:01:01
So they go so he goes on. This is the now this the clip that
1:01:04
you played earlier that you thought it was really
1:01:06
referencing this attorney general nonpolitical BS clip and
1:01:10
let me preface it. They're going on about this about. And by the
1:01:15
way, the whole show is about Trump, having they bring you
1:01:19
know, they personally brought over a guy from The Hague, from
1:01:22
the criminal
1:01:23
Oh, or the International Criminal Court.
1:01:26
They brought this guy over to be the product of the new product,
1:01:30
the independent prosecutor, yes. For the Yeah. And this Yes, yes,
1:01:34
this is great. And this is a big deal to these guys. And key
1:01:38
parts all in ISIS. This is fabulous. The American public
1:01:41
once this by a significant, sorry, way, I got more. And so
1:01:46
he says, he says, and is not political. It's not political.
1:01:51
People need to understand it's not political. And so listen to
1:01:53
this by
1:01:54
a significant person in American life in American political life,
1:01:58
a former president who just announced he's seeking the
1:02:02
Republican nomination for the next presidential cycle, which
1:02:05
the Attorney General said was the was the thing that happened
1:02:09
that necessitated this move.
1:02:13
Okay, hold on,
1:02:14
what was the thing that would Oh, yes, him announcing is why
1:02:20
you needed or the public interest need to have him being
1:02:23
investigated right away?
1:02:25
Yeah. So it's not political. No. So faculty announced, we got to
1:02:30
do all this. We got to start scrambling to get to screw him
1:02:33
over. That's basically what he said. But according to K part,
1:02:37
this is fabulous. So anyway, so let's go to part two of this.
1:02:42
This is Yeah, and this is what what makes me so tired. And I
1:02:47
was like, I think we're just gonna go through another cycle
1:02:50
of that
1:02:51
necessitated this move. And I think it should say to the
1:02:54
American people, one and I think also the Attorney General also
1:02:57
announced, yeah, we have been investigating, but we're taking
1:03:00
this so seriously, that we're giving it to a special counsel,
1:03:04
who is lit up quite literally, out of the Justice Department,
1:03:07
and he's over at The Hague, if memory serves, and this person
1:03:11
will be in charge of running the rest of the investigation. It is
1:03:18
an attempt by the Justice Department by the Attorney
1:03:21
General to give the American people confidence that the
1:03:27
investigations are being done fairly, and being done
1:03:32
impartially in that no, no favor is being given or taken away
1:03:38
from, from Donald Trump.
1:03:41
Oh, my goodness. Yeah. Now, here's what I mean by It's so
1:03:45
tiring, even though I love my job. I really don't doesn't feel
1:03:49
like work. But when, when you get reports like this, it just
1:03:52
it's triggering. It takes me back six years, former
1:03:55
President Trump is lashing out at me.
1:03:58
He's lashing out again, John.
1:04:01
He's lashing out lashing out. Former President
1:04:04
Trump is lashing out after the appointment of a special counsel
1:04:08
to oversee two criminal investigations involving Mr.
1:04:11
Trump. CBS Natalie brand is in our Washington bureau with the
1:04:14
latest. Natalie.
1:04:16
Adrianna, the former president reacting to this news is now
1:04:19
trying to use it as a rallying cry ahead of 2024. This is a
1:04:24
rigged deal GE called the appointment of a special counsel
1:04:27
and expected political stunt and repeated without offering proof
1:04:31
what he said about other investigation.
1:04:33
There it is without offering proof this horrendous
1:04:36
abuse of power is the latest in a long series of witch hunts.
1:04:40
But the Department of Justice says it man
1:04:43
Trump witch hunts. You know, this is why it's so tiring.
1:04:47
But the Department of Justice says it made the decision in an
1:04:50
effort to avoid political influence and independently move
1:04:53
forward with the investigations into Trump's role in January 6
1:04:57
than efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential result. as
1:05:00
well as Trump's handling of classified documents seized from
1:05:03
his Florida estate, Trump's former Attorney General William
1:05:06
Barr told PBS he believes it's increasingly more likely the
1:05:10
former president could face an indictment
1:05:13
if the Department of Justice can show that these were indeed very
1:05:17
sensitive documents, and also showed that the President
1:05:20
consciously was involved in misleading the department
1:05:24
deceiving the government, that those are serious, serious,
1:05:28
serious.
1:05:29
Now Trump and his attacks of the newly appointed special counsel
1:05:32
Jack Smith also offered no evidence when he described Smith
1:05:36
as, quote, the radical left, the veteran prosecutors reputation
1:05:40
among those who know him is as politically independent.
1:05:44
Is it true? Is he politically independent?
1:05:48
I doubt it. Why would you put him in there if he was? Now the
1:05:51
thing is, once you get this because that was a very bias
1:05:54
very simply execute. CBS
1:05:56
was all over this. I have one more from CBS.
1:06:00
All right, Attorney General Merrick Garland,
1:06:02
and we will not laugh. We will not laugh anymore. Jeff gays
1:06:06
Attorney General Merrick Garland, David Gibson, former
1:06:09
President Trump's decision to run again, he was in the public
1:06:13
interest to appoint a special counsel.
1:06:16
It also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work
1:06:19
expeditiously and to make decisions indisputably guided
1:06:23
only by the facts and the law.
1:06:26
Tap for the job Jack Smith, a war crimes prosecutor and former
1:06:30
head of the Justice Department's Public Integrity section. He
1:06:34
will now decide whether Mr. Trump will face charges in the
1:06:37
case involving classified documents found at Trump's
1:06:40
Florida State. And whether he and his allies interfered with
1:06:46
the transfer of power on January 6,
1:06:49
this decision takes a lot of the politics out of it. He's
1:06:54
appointed a longtime career prosecutor highly respected,
1:06:59
very experienced.
1:07:00
Historically special counsels have been appointed to avoid
1:07:03
conflicts and political influence. The Garland's move
1:07:07
comes just days after Trump's 2024 announcement, and I'm a
1:07:11
victim setting up a potential match with President Biden. Late
1:07:17
tonight,
1:07:18
this horrendous abuse of power is the latest today long series
1:07:22
of which US started a long time ago.
1:07:26
The last high profile special counsel investigation into
1:07:30
Trump's ties to Russia lasted roughly two years. Legal experts
1:07:35
say this could wrap it up much sooner.
1:07:38
I suspect it means we'll see a decision and potential
1:07:41
indictment within the first three months of the new year.
1:07:46
It's overproduced, it's too long. It's boring. I don't think
1:07:50
it's effective. It's only for you know, it's like oh, so Bill
1:07:54
Barr can say hey, I'm on CBS this weekend. I don't think it's
1:07:58
very, very effective. It's annoying. It's tedious. I think
1:08:01
it's bad for the ratings. I don't think it's
1:08:04
I use PBS was worse. PBS started with it. Yeah. And they went on
1:08:09
for almost the whole first 15 minutes of the show is about it.
1:08:13
They brought people on and it goes woven Shuri situation. And
1:08:18
they had me they would have gotten they would have gotten
1:08:20
Bill Barr on the I'm sure he would have gone on to the
1:08:22
invited them did was
1:08:25
I was gonna say Did they talk at all about the Homeland Security
1:08:29
Committee? Hearing?
1:08:32
No, of course not.
1:08:34
But so you're telling me that important? Questions and Answers
1:08:39
about January 6, which is critical to media. You told me
1:08:46
that they didn't cover that.
1:08:49
Well, they mean, they covered it when it during its process. No.
1:08:52
I
1:08:52
mean, was this Homeland Security Committee meeting? This is
1:08:54
weird. Ah, oh, no. You think that uh, take interest? This is?
1:09:00
Higgins. He is
1:09:04
got nothing to do with Trump, or doesn't have anything negative
1:09:07
about Trump.
1:09:08
Oh, that's what it is. Okay. FBI Director Ray was on on the
1:09:14
stand. And the representative from Louisiana Higgins asked him
1:09:19
a few questions.
1:09:20
Director Ray. Does, does the FBI have confidential human sources?
1:09:29
Did the FBI of confidential human sources embedded within
1:09:34
the January 6 protesters? And on January 6 2021?
1:09:41
Well, Congressman, as I'm sure you can appreciate, I had to be
1:09:44
very careful about what I can say about
1:09:46
when even more outraged because that's what I told this
1:09:50
matte finish about when we do and do not and where we haven't
1:09:54
have not used confidential human sources. But to the extent that
1:09:57
there's a suggestion for example, that the FBI is
1:10:01
confidential human sources or FBI employees in some way
1:10:04
instigated and orchestrated January 6, that's categorically
1:10:07
false.
1:10:08
Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump
1:10:11
supporters inside the Capitol on January 6, prior to the doors
1:10:15
being opened?
1:10:16
Again, I had to be very careful. No.
1:10:19
Can you not tell the American people No, no, we did not have
1:10:23
confidential human sources dress as Trump supporters position
1:10:26
inside the Capitol,
1:10:27
gentlemen. You should not read anything into my decision. To
1:10:33
share information rectory
1:10:34
confidential Yeomans time has expired.
1:10:37
I like this guy. This Higgins guy. It should be no I got
1:10:41
another one from in a minute.
1:10:42
That's that that actually was a good one. I haven't heard anyone
1:10:46
pull that one out of the hat. The answer should be no.
1:10:50
Here's Holly, who has announced officially he will not be
1:10:55
seeking an election for president in 2024. Which makes
1:11:00
him a candidate for something else. I guess maybe he could be
1:11:03
a VP. He certainly is Georgia State. He's a showboater though,
1:11:09
man. He's a lawyer. I'm not a big fan of him of his. But he is
1:11:14
effective. And here he is grilling. FBI Director Ray.
1:11:19
Let's just look at some of the things while you've been
1:11:21
vacationing that your FBI has been doing right there right
1:11:25
there. Right off the bat. According to numerous
1:11:30
whistleblowers who have come forward to members of this body
1:11:33
to members of the House. The FBI has been sending more than in
1:11:38
one instance a dozen armed agents to a rural Pennsylvania
1:11:40
home with a Catholic prolife demonstrator to arrest him at
1:11:43
gunpoint in front of his children in early morning hours,
1:11:47
despite the fact that he posed no risk of violence or threat
1:11:50
and had previously offered to turn himself in. Numerous
1:11:53
whistleblowers. field agents have alleged that DC your
1:11:57
headquarters has pulled them off working on child sex abuse
1:12:00
cases, working on human trafficking cases in order to
1:12:03
work on January 6 matters for this reason to give the
1:12:06
appearance they say they say that there are hundreds of new
1:12:10
domestic terrorism cases in the country, when in fact there are
1:12:13
not whistleblowers. field agents have also said that DC has
1:12:16
ordered the use of SWAT teams on non violent suspects who may
1:12:21
have attended a January 6 rally. And they have been ordered to
1:12:24
conduct surveillance and knock on doors of people who were not
1:12:27
even in DC on January 6, and again, all of this according to
1:12:31
the whistleblowers, these are your agents, all of this in
1:12:34
order to make it look as if there's a mass surge and
1:12:37
domestic terrorism all across the country, when in fact, the
1:12:41
stats are being patted my political directive in your
1:12:44
office. They also say these whistleblowers, the DC
1:12:48
leadership deliberately suppressed investigations into
1:12:50
Hunter Biden contrary to FBI procedure, and have also
1:12:54
retaliated against FBI agents and whistleblowers who have
1:12:58
contacted Congress, which by the way, they are protected by
1:13:01
statute to do so. This is what's happening at your FBI while you
1:13:06
are evading oversight hearings. Mr. Director, do you think
1:13:10
you're still up to this job?
1:13:12
I absolutely think I'm still up to the shaman, our workforce
1:13:15
feels the same way. Well, I
1:13:16
don't. And frankly, I think you should have been gone a long
1:13:20
time ago. And given your behavior recently, I think it
1:13:23
only makes it more clear. Are there any travel plans today
1:13:26
that we should be aware of
1:13:27
that you have? We're supposed to have a second round? Will you be
1:13:29
here for that? Yes. That's a good one. You have any travel
1:13:33
plans? That's so threatening in a weird way. Were you planning
1:13:39
on traveling because we're gonna detain you? And just have one
1:13:45
more
1:13:45
none of that. By the way. None of this is covered on PBS or by
1:13:49
the K part, K part and dude or anything else because they just
1:13:53
don't want to talk about it. The news has gotten ridiculously
1:13:57
biased and they're just losing more and more and more
1:14:00
viewership as people discover this. Exactly. I don't know what
1:14:04
they're up to what they're trying to prove. It's just
1:14:07
they're all part of one and worried sick that Trump's going
1:14:10
to be president again. And what then watch they're just the
1:14:13
radios will go
1:14:13
up. Heaven forbid they're following orders. They're just
1:14:16
following orders.
1:14:17
Yes, they are following orders that whose orders being
1:14:19
delivered from now when I saw they please Margaret Hoover. do
1:14:24
her a little interview on firing line. I wrote about it in the
1:14:26
newsletter with Bill Barr. It was ridiculous. Bill Barr ex
1:14:34
CIA. Margaret Hoover MK Ultra by my definition or anything. She
1:14:41
goes on and barges excoriates Trump is just in a horrible way
1:14:46
and then then eventually backs off when she tries to corner him
1:14:49
on certain things he wasn't going to go along with and it
1:14:53
was just if anyone can get a look at this, you'll see a
1:14:56
pathetic interview. But I don't know what by the way she was
1:14:59
wearing A dress of some sort. This dress has a cost to 2500
1:15:03
bucks. I mean, maybe five I mean it was just wow. And like a
1:15:12
little pixie smiling and and then every once in a while
1:15:16
you're gonna get the shakes when he wouldn't answer right? It was
1:15:19
terrible.
1:15:20
Oh no, I gotta go watch that sounds like a very entertaining
1:15:23
episode.
1:15:24
Just look at her just to look at her dress and then now I need to
1:15:26
match the dress because it's got some white, white kind of
1:15:30
highlights on the dress. It's got like a flower design. She's
1:15:34
got a white, a white Level Layer.
1:15:40
Yeah, okay, they got budget. So on the
1:15:44
white level there. I'm sure they have a box of level layers that
1:15:47
are all colored.
1:15:48
Oh, yeah. Sennheiser makes them in all different colors. The
1:15:51
yellow
1:15:51
everybody. Yeah, Sennheiser makes a lot of these guys making
1:15:54
a lot of colors. But it is a it's a white one.
1:15:57
So I just want to I just want to go back to the to the Higgins
1:16:00
Higgins. Higgins character. Higgins. Yes from Louisiana. So
1:16:05
he also,
1:16:07
by the way, you know that's where John Kennedy's he's also
1:16:10
Louisiana. If I'm not mistaken. I can Tukey
1:16:14
No, I think you're right. Yeah. All right.
1:16:16
These guys are fine. Think he's the one who set the stage. Yeah.
1:16:21
And everybody now has to be that good.
1:16:24
Petroleum informs me the dress might have been Vera Wang.
1:16:30
I wouldn't be I wouldn't be in the least surprise.
1:16:32
Yeah, crazy acid does Vera Wang style. She's so so 2000s Okay,
1:16:38
so now. Now Higgins goes after my orcas. My orcas is the
1:16:45
Director of Homeland Security. That and I really don't like
1:16:49
this guy. This guy is a douche.
1:16:51
And a total douche. He's got weird alien eyes like or some
1:16:56
something wrong with this guy. There's
1:16:57
definitely something wrong with this guy. Yeah. And here we go.
1:17:01
Check with him. I love you use your authority to suppress six
1:17:05
Goldman Sachs evidence misrepresented by CBP agents who
1:17:10
have come on to public attack and condemnation by DHS and the
1:17:14
Biden administration. If you use your authority to suppress
1:17:18
exculpatory evidence presented by CBP agents who have come
1:17:23
under public attack and condemnation by you and Biden
1:17:27
administration,
1:17:28
two points if I may. Congressman, number one, in
1:17:31
response to your second question, I don't even know what
1:17:33
you're referring to and with with respect to your first
1:17:36
take that as you're on the record as saying no USU has not
1:17:40
use your authority to suppress exculpatory evidence, if you're
1:17:44
if you're an honorable man, and obviously, you should be able to
1:17:47
say no to that, who would suppress exculpatory evidence?
1:17:50
Is your answer. No, I don't even know what you're referring to.
1:17:53
Commonly you will. And and if I made my orcas have you use your
1:17:58
authority to retaliate against DHS agents who served on special
1:18:02
details during the Trump administration, ages identified
1:18:06
by your administration, as conservatives are Trump
1:18:09
supporters
1:18:10
once again, Congressman, I don't even know what you're referring
1:18:13
to
1:18:13
before Congress. I'm gonna take that as a no. Through your
1:18:17
authority Secretary Mayorkas, have you encouraged your chain
1:18:20
of command to suppress basic law enforcement actions at the
1:18:24
border in harass, victimized or intimidate, experienced
1:18:29
frontline law enforcement agents at the border using internal
1:18:32
investigations and threats of disciplinary action or transfer
1:18:37
in order to force those ages to comply with DHS policies that
1:18:42
actually injure the security of our homeland? And a contrary to
1:18:47
the sworn oath of those agents? Is that the culture you've
1:18:50
created?
1:18:51
Congressman, I don't even know what you're referring to.
1:18:54
You will and my orcas final question church serve honor and
1:19:00
it's been rumored
1:19:01
and nobility throughout the Department of Homeland Security
1:19:05
that is represent that nobility, orcas.
1:19:09
That is what I am dedicated to.
1:19:12
It's been rumored Secretary that you're going to resign prior to
1:19:15
January 3. And in truth to those rumors.
1:19:17
That is a false rumor.
1:19:19
All right, we look forward to seeing you in January.
1:19:22
Wow. Also ending with a threat. That's such a veiled threat. So
1:19:27
you have travel plans, here resigning. These guys are out
1:19:31
for blood.
1:19:33
It sounds like and I like it. I
1:19:35
like this, but for citing Well, we're the only ones that can
1:19:38
complete it because no one else will show it. Right.
1:19:43
This is a fact unfortunately,
1:19:45
just as a as an overall theory since you know the whole Trump
1:19:48
thing is rather puzzling. Do you think he could be playing a heel
1:19:52
strategy for DeSantis maybe even to distract? Biden?
1:19:58
I've thought definitely beginning I don't think that's
1:20:01
his style, though. The problem is I don't think he doesn't have
1:20:04
them. I do not. I do not believe that. He has the martyr in him.
1:20:13
Exactly. I mean, he knows how to do it, because and of course,
1:20:16
we're WW II, you know, he knows that the wrestling heal very
1:20:20
well. I mean, unless it's like a twofer, and then all of a
1:20:24
sudden, boom, it's two of them. I can't see them on a ticket
1:20:27
together. Honestly,
1:20:28
no, I can't either. No, that's not going to happen. Because he
1:20:31
DeSantis wouldn't do it.
1:20:33
I don't think it would be a great Gambit. If all these
1:20:38
billionaires were in on it. Um, him being a heel, it would be a
1:20:41
great martyrdom, but I think you're right. I don't think his
1:20:44
ego will let him do it.
1:20:48
I mean, it would be a twist, that would be totally
1:20:52
unexpected, and it would work. It would work. I think we I
1:20:56
think we both agree on that. It would be a great one. And then
1:20:59
he could take a lot of credit for it. But he still has this.
1:21:03
He still irked about the 2020 debacle. And you know, and I
1:21:08
think he probably was some good reason and in fact that people
1:21:11
keep there was a really funny I didn't get a super clip of it
1:21:14
but some guy put together a document of the difference
1:21:19
between 2016 Winner Hillary and everybody else's denying the
1:21:22
election their election deniers and got kicked off a YouTube but
1:21:26
I want to play these clips from Arizona. This is Carrie Lake
1:21:30
coming on at the beginning of this clip and just listen to the
1:21:33
bowl crap. And I believe I believe this is going on
1:21:38
especially in Maricopa County this Arizona voting one
1:21:41
that I am still in this fight with you.
1:21:44
In a video released Thursday on social media Lake says her
1:21:47
claims of a broken election system have been confirmed.
1:21:51
Well, we call for Katie
1:21:52
Hobbs to recuse herself over.
1:21:53
Wait a minute. Is this an NT D report? You got it is great. I
1:21:59
like how she has confirmed
1:22:00
have been confirmed confirmed. It's almost like a sitcom broken
1:22:04
election system have been confirmed.
1:22:06
Well, we call for Katie Hobbs
1:22:08
to recuse herself over a year ago.
1:22:10
They ridiculed us. It turns out we were right. The fox was
1:22:14
guarding the hen house and because of that voters have been
1:22:17
disenfranchise
1:22:18
hubs. The current Secretary of State is the top election
1:22:22
official in the state as overseer of elections hubs has
1:22:25
several duties, including watching the counts and
1:22:27
certifying the election results. She spoke on CNN and I'm not
1:22:31
going to recuse myself from the job that the voters elected me
1:22:34
to do. Throughout the race lake called for an overhaul of
1:22:38
Arizona's election system citing problems with voting machines.
1:22:42
In the video. She says she was right to question the system.
1:22:45
On election day nearly half of all polling locations had
1:22:48
problems with tabulating machines and printers.
1:22:52
But Hobbs said on Wednesday in an interview with the Washington
1:22:55
Post, the system doesn't need an overhaul. She said as governor
1:22:58
she wants to expand early Brian may be mailed ballots to carry
1:23:04
league called for voters who experienced problems with voting
1:23:07
to reach out and share their stories which he then posted on
1:23:10
Twitter.
1:23:10
When we arrived at the voting center. The workers told us that
1:23:12
the printers at that location
1:23:14
were all broken. So they went to the next closest voting center
1:23:17
at Litchfield Park First Baptist Church. But while standing in
1:23:21
the 40 person line, Mr. Kearns noticed some problems.
1:23:25
We noticed that about two out of every three people that tried to
1:23:28
scan their ballots, it just wouldn't scan their ballot. The
1:23:30
location
1:23:30
had only two scanners, neither worked on Mr. Kearns ballot, he
1:23:34
was asked to put his ballot into door three, but he refused. In
1:23:38
the end, they allowed him to use the handicap system which prints
1:23:41
a larger ballot. That worked. It took them over an hour to vote
1:23:46
and by that time he estimated the line to be between 101 150
1:23:50
people. Yeah.
1:23:52
Yeah, yeah. The problem is the Democrats they collected ballots
1:23:56
and the Republicans that collect votes, there's your mistake.
1:23:58
They'll learn
1:24:01
the ideas to fix it but let's go clip to have this.
1:24:07
Steve handle and arrive to vote at 530 in the morning and was
1:24:10
ninth in line
1:24:11
one of the tabulators was broken, and the other tabulator
1:24:15
kept rejecting everyone's vote.
1:24:17
Emily Weinberg and her boyfriend Jalen tops experienced what they
1:24:21
called voter fraud. They say a voter registration drive took
1:24:25
place at their community college. Jalen registered but
1:24:28
when the worker saw he chose Republican as the party, she
1:24:31
said, Are you sure that's right. When he went to vote, he says he
1:24:35
was only given a Federal Voting form and that they accused him
1:24:38
of being an illegal immigrant. He provided his photo ID
1:24:42
driver's license and a social security card to prove he was an
1:24:45
American citizen. According to Emily, the worker responded, I'm
1:24:50
sorry we don't accept that as a form of proof. This poll
1:24:54
observer says four out of seven ballots were failing when he
1:24:57
observed from 12:30pm to 1pm On election day
1:25:02
on these affected voters faces, they were in disbelief in our
1:25:05
system of voting this very moment. In
1:25:09
Arizona election officials say that machines at the Maricopa
1:25:12
County tabulation and election center were able to process the
1:25:15
ballots that couldn't be read at voting centers. Recent results
1:25:19
show Democrat Katie Hobbs is LEED has dropped from 0.8 to
1:25:23
0.6%. under Arizona law, a recount triggers when the margin
1:25:28
is less than or equal. 2.5%.
1:25:31
Yeah, so this is still not over.
1:25:35
No
1:25:39
Yeah, we didn't have a printer ballot printed ballots we yeah,
1:25:44
we had a you colored in the boxes and then put it into the
1:25:48
scanner. Yeah, so we do. Yeah, that's a mess. It's a mess. That
1:25:54
everyone's given up, John, they're all given up. Now if
1:25:57
people don't care anymore, I'm not going to vote doesn't
1:25:59
matter. It's all bull crap. And that's the desired outcome.
1:26:02
Really? Yeah, that's what they want. Okay, little entre mon
1:26:06
just so we get back into a more happier mood. Just before we
1:26:10
take a break here. We've got some some situations coming back
1:26:15
again, things that we haven't seen in many, many years and
1:26:18
breaking
1:26:18
news from North Korea firing what is believed to be the
1:26:20
second intercontinental ballistic missile this month.
1:26:23
Japan says the missile landed and in its exclusive economic
1:26:27
zone, but it was capable of striking anywhere on the US
1:26:31
mainland. Vice President Kamala Harris held a meeting with world
1:26:34
leaders at the APEC summit in Thailand to discuss the launch.
1:26:39
This conduct by North Korea most recently is a brazen violation
1:26:43
of multiple UN Security resolutions. If destabilizes
1:26:48
security in the region and unnecessarily raises tensions.
1:26:53
We strongly condemn these actions. And we again call for
1:26:56
North Korea to stop further unlawful destabilizing acts.
1:27:02
Because nothing says we got this America more than putting Kamala
1:27:06
Harris out to take care of the issue of the issue. So this is
1:27:11
obviously yet another military industrial complex bullcrap
1:27:15
stunt as confirmed by my uncle Don when he allowed me to ask
1:27:20
anything that was one of the things is Korea that stuff. It's
1:27:24
it's just just sales we got to have sales. And I would say that
1:27:29
North Korea they're proud of what they're doing. To them.
1:27:33
This is like an Artemis launch. And you know who's back our
1:27:38
Korea news lady.
1:27:41
Tony I don't think so. Sean balsa is nice he's tong tong
1:27:47

She's a staple she's a staple
1:28:45
I missed her she's back
1:28:49

1:28:51
No, no, she's been there the whole time that would that I'd
1:28:53

1:29:11

1:29:13
the dames at nights out there. Hey
1:29:15
Anna begin the morning to all of the trolls and the troll room
1:29:18
who always congregate there at troll room.io Good to have you
1:29:23
all here. They're here. Pretty much 24/7 If you go to troll
1:29:27
them.io You can pop right into the chat there and you can
1:29:30
listen to the no agenda stream which includes 12 1314 live
1:29:35
shows at this point in this 24/7 all talk no agenda. There is
1:29:39
some music though for some cool stuff. Thank you, Darren, for
1:29:42
doing your pre recorded pre show for every single episode of no
1:29:47
agenda and let's take a look at how many do we have here in our
1:29:51
drawer.
1:29:56
2160 This feels better
1:30:01
Just under down from typical Sunday, it's better than last
1:30:05
time.
1:30:05
It's better than last time. Okay. Well, thanks, trolls.
1:30:08
We're glad to have you here. Believe me, we love having you
1:30:12
here on this Sunday. And the trolls, of course, can also be
1:30:16
found individually at knowledge into social.com. I have to say,
1:30:20
I think Elon has done us a great service. And he has, he has
1:30:27
moved a lot of people to the fediverse. Have you seen any
1:30:31
people that are familiar to you in the fediverse? So you just
1:30:33
kind of still in the no agenda, social vibe.
1:30:39
No agenda, socials in the fediverse. I know. But do you
1:30:41
see more people who wish to you refer what he is?
1:30:45
Like? Have you seen now? Jay Rosen? Or Jeff Jarvis? No. No,
1:30:50
he should see that on the Fetty. It's growing out and
1:30:55
interested in anything they have to say.
1:30:59
Of course not. It just the whole idea is that there are people
1:31:03
who are moving to the fediverse and enjoying it. This is what's
1:31:08
surprising. I'm surprised something broke, something broke
1:31:13
over there. I'd like to thank you know, here's
1:31:17
an interesting little story. So that at least locally, they
1:31:20
announced that you know people are quitting and vibe going on.
1:31:23
But he shut the offices down for not getting locked up locked the
1:31:27
doors locked him out. Just say Well, no. Yeah. And nobody's
1:31:33
reporting any kind of like, well, don't is. Does anyone
1:31:37
speculate about why?
1:31:40
I do. What? No, there's going to relaunch with the new stack and
1:31:44
it's going to be WeChat USA.
1:31:47
No, way else would you shut down in offices like that? Unless you
1:31:51
send in your private investigators to go through
1:31:53
everyone's desk? One at a time. You got a whole weekend to do
1:31:59
it. 24/7 you got 24 hours to do it. per day. 48 hours there? 48.
1:32:05
So 72 Maybe total? I don't know. But you sent all the people in
1:32:09
there you go through everybody's desk you start looking at
1:32:12
everything you can do they have what did they got in their? In
1:32:15
their in their desk today by the communists? Are they a bunch of
1:32:18
cream really worked for somebody else? Really? Interesting. What
1:32:22
else would you shut down the office like that for now? I just
1:32:25
told you my idea. And you said your ideas just when the
1:32:28
mainstream media would say but I'm telling you
1:32:30
stop Stop, stop, stop. No, the mainstream media is not saying
1:32:33
what I'm saying.
1:32:34
You're right. The mainstream media saying nothing. Correct.
1:32:37
So you're right there. But no, that's what you do. And that's
1:32:41
what he's doing. He's that kind of guy. He's worked with the you
1:32:44
know, the security state he knows what's going on. He's got
1:32:47
everybody booked in there everyone that's working there.
1:32:50
He's the desk has gone been gone through.
1:32:54
All right. All right. Well, we'll know on Monday.
1:32:57
No, we won't because they've got to do it right. And they're not
1:33:00
gonna be any evidence. I
1:33:01
mean, it's when there's no evidence then we'll know that it
1:33:04
happened. If if all of a sudden you're paying your electric bill
1:33:09
with your Twitter account then we'll know that I was right
1:33:14
that's gonna be a while
1:33:15
yeah, probably. Anyway, no agenda social.com is a premier
1:33:20
premier outfit on the fediverse There's a think it's is it
1:33:26
fediverse dot space, you can see a visual representation of this
1:33:32
huge cloud and then if you look way up to the left hand corner
1:33:36
this this little like an ulcerous growth that is still
1:33:40
connected to the fediverse but hanging on by a few threads
1:33:43
that's where we live because we've been blocked by so many
1:33:46
people but we're still in there. We're still
1:33:49
anybody block us at all we
1:33:51
just we were on his block list your virtual silo we were on a
1:33:54
block list four years ago because and I will say that some
1:33:59
producers on no agenda social were totally baiting the
1:34:02
tardes@mastodon.com And so we got put on the block list for
1:34:06
being que que que Nazi Cardrooms Don't you remember?
1:34:11
I can't believe to that gullible. So in other words,
1:34:17
instead of actually doing the job doing the work, and actually
1:34:20
checking things out and seeing for yourself whether something's
1:34:23
good, bad or indifferent, you just hear from a couple of
1:34:27
trolls that go in there and Yang No,
1:34:29
no, no, it was the official block list that they created a
1:34:32
block list and we were on it and I think we're probably
1:34:35
why did we get on it? Why did we get on it?
1:34:37
Because people didn't like what? Because early on, as we were
1:34:43
just in the fediverse people were trolling the lib tardes
1:34:47
that's exactly what I said. Yeah, trolls got in there. No,
1:34:51
it was our people. Our people,
1:34:54
we have a lot of jerks. And I saw
1:34:57
I call them out on I said, Hey, you can say whatever you want.
1:35:00
but because of you we got blacklisted we got blocked.
1:35:02
That's why.
1:35:03
Yeah, yeah. So thanks a lot for helping out the show. Exactly.
1:35:09
Alright, somehow that turned into a real downer. I don't know
1:35:12
even though we're really we're really smart for being in there.
1:35:14
You know, we got great Federation. Alright, everybody,
1:35:18
thanks.
1:35:18
But it still points out the flaw. Which is just because some
1:35:23
jagoff comes in and tells you something it could be because
1:35:26
and they hate it. You know, that woman? Or you I know is married
1:35:30
to her, but she's a slut. That sort of thing. Yeah. But I don't
1:35:36
just take it at face value, then you're you're a douchebag.
1:35:39
But the whole point is that if people don't like being
1:35:42
somewhere where no agenda show was blocked, they'll go get an
1:35:46
account somewhere else. That's the point. That's what makes it
1:35:48
work. I'm just saying. Anyway, were outcasts was my point.
1:35:55
Thank you very much to the artist for episode 1504. We
1:35:59
titled it the uninspired title of value chain. The more I saw
1:36:03
it, the more I'm like, God what a piece of crap title that
1:36:06
was really like it at the time.
1:36:09
No, we were tired. But I didn't want to fight you and you had
1:36:13
already given me the the I was not
1:36:15
about to I wasn't pushing anything. I just had a list. I
1:36:18
wasn't I had
1:36:19
no I had no list. Yeah, well, no list. And you and I'd already
1:36:24
forced my art choice.
1:36:27
I was I didn't have a problem with the art. Well,
1:36:29
I forced it anyway. It was Eli five explain it like I'm fine.
1:36:32
You
1:36:33
forced it. I've done it before you've done it before. We both
1:36:36
do it. Very rare. But it was like no, I'm picking this art.
1:36:40
And that's that. And then you just you stand firm and unless
1:36:44
the other person would be me in this case, has wants to fight.
1:36:49
No once you better have a pretty good piece to fight with. Of
1:36:52
course. The piece I had to fight with was a piece of cheesecake
1:36:56
art, which I thought was dynamite. I use it on the
1:36:59
newsletter. I don't do fine with me.
1:37:00
I know I'm just tired of the cheesecake.
1:37:04
I know you are even though if you look at the last piece we
1:37:07
use we have not used that much cheesecake. I end up using it in
1:37:10
the newsletter a lot.
1:37:11
Wait a minute. You're telling me the last 10 pieces. We have not
1:37:15
used much cheesecake?
1:37:18
Yes, the last 10 pieces. We have not used much cheesecake. You're
1:37:21
gonna challenge me on this. We're gonna go to the no agenda.
1:37:25
What is it? No agenda? show.com.
1:37:28
Okay, yes, no agenda. show.com or dotnet? No. All right. Let's
1:37:33
do let's do it. Let's do it. Big man. All right. Are you there
1:37:37
yet? Okay, let's take a look. Let us see. Okay, here
1:37:42
we go. Okay, last 1234 pieces at the top of the thing, no
1:37:46
cheesecake whatsoever. Not even an image of a person. So I have
1:37:50
six more
1:37:50
chances. Browse the archive. Thank you for this new site.
1:37:55
Holy crap. Okay. We have number eight cheesecake. No. What do
1:38:01
you mean 15 years?
1:38:03
entails dies alone.
1:38:06
Oh, it's got a hairy legs.
1:38:09
Yeah, there's no cheat at 1234. We got 12 pieces. There's a
1:38:13
picture of a girl's face cut off or overhead was chopped off like
1:38:18
Fetterman. She's chopped off. She's listening
1:38:21
on headphones. Like she's orgasmic about 15 years and then
1:38:25
even says almost come on. And then Alright, not the last time
1:38:29
but then we have to cheesecake women.
1:38:33
No, we have bloggers going back to what you said the last 10
1:38:36
piece we have plenty of cheesecake. There's no example
1:38:39
of plenty. The word plenty right. All of a sudden you're
1:38:42
right. There's
1:38:43
no plenty of cheesecake but we have plenty of cheesecake in
1:38:46
general. All right, we could you know what, I'll tell you
1:38:51
something. If I didn't like the ELI five so much. I would have
1:38:55
gone cheese with you.
1:38:58
I would have well, the ELI piece was was I wasn't going to make a
1:39:04
big argument with you because I knew I could always use the
1:39:06
other piece but the ELI five thing because I didn't think
1:39:11
much of this phrase is a beautiful piece. It's so
1:39:15
professional looking. It's you know, the cheesecake, one looks
1:39:19
like cheesecake. And it's cartoony. This is a dynamite
1:39:23
piece I would have suggested in the spelling of no agenda that
1:39:28
there was some more color. Yes. And the blocks is ag and it
1:39:32
could have been done in color. I agree.
1:39:34
100%.
1:39:36
But yes, it was. It wasn't a debatable when it came down to
1:39:41
it. The piece was too good.
1:39:45
All right. So already there's cheesecake to Cheesecakes for
1:39:49
this show. So people getting all cheesecake. There wasn't actual
1:39:55
cheesecake from Sir dude named Parker Polly. embargo it was an
1:40:03
actual piece of cheesecake.
1:40:05
Yeah it was cheese cake you like a New York style?
1:40:08
Yeah with the chocolate dripping down What else was there that
1:40:11
was
1:40:13
blood that was rounded a couple of interesting pieces but the
1:40:17
piece by a capitalist agenda which was the cheesecake piece
1:40:21
it was a rock and it was it was 50 style like art it was pretty
1:40:26
and I use it in the newsletter it was and that was going to be
1:40:28
that but this other piece which was the who did or piece or
1:40:32
networks networks did winter Yeah
1:40:37
well we appreciate you network's love that piece. I agree with
1:40:42
Johnson minor note about the the color of the no agenda letters,
1:40:46
but it was just it was fantastic. And I liked the
1:40:48
cheesecake too. But you know obviously it was clear who had
1:40:50
to win. Thanks to all of the artists competing now more than
1:40:54

1:46:25
You've been de deuced Keep up the great work for us Dukes, aka
1:46:31
faux Diddley, and
1:46:32
he wants an RTG to karma for all we have that for him as well.
1:46:36
You've got karma now this doesn't happen very often, but
1:46:42
that's it. No, no Associates today.
1:46:44
Yeah, that's pretty weird. Maybe Brunetti sending out emails?
1:46:52
What does Brunetti have to do with it?
1:46:54
Brunetti has his hard on for the Associate Executive Producer
1:46:58
title? Oh, yeah, accidentally Yeah, it thinks it's Bogota.
1:47:02
It's no good he thinks this lady thinks is a title that in
1:47:05
Hollywood, you give to people instead of a raise you give to
1:47:09
people who are bringing the coffee that you're bringing to
1:47:11
people who go get your dry cleaning? Possibly. So it's
1:47:17
different in different businesses though I mean, it's
1:47:19
different in podcasting than Hollywood in that regard is
1:47:23
different in publishing as you know Associate Executive
1:47:26
producer can mean a lot of different things but
1:47:28
so we're sorry Mr. Mr. Hollywood, so sorry, man.

1:51:54
This past year or so I've lost to 13 year old dogs and then my
1:51:58
62 year old father Brian to esophageal cancer. I quit my job
1:52:03
of 12 plus years early this year when it became too much to bear
1:52:06
and had been working on my bachelor's degree which will be
1:52:08
completed in a few months. It was really important to my dad
1:52:11
that I did that. I turned 40 on November 9 and through the first
1:52:15
half of my life as an though the first half of my life has ended
1:52:18
on a sour note. I've got high hopes the backside of the hill
1:52:22
been listening to the show for many years and had been a
1:52:24
subscription plan for about that long based on what PayPal says
1:52:27

1:52:30
should put me over the threshold for knighthood please dub me sir
1:52:33
shoe we have the land of ice and snow score Vikings. You bet
1:52:39
Nate. I don't see how this is not a sad note. It made me a
1:52:46
little sad. So we're happy that oh my god, my voice. You told me
1:52:51
that this is not happening. My voice is is crapping out on me.
1:52:55
I need your last drink. I wasn't here but I don't have a lozenge.
1:53:05
All right. I don't know I gotta stand up. It's it's, it's
1:53:09
somehow sitting down with my diaphragm or I don't know what
1:53:13

1:53:56
Our formula is this. We go out.
1:53:59
We hit people in the mouth oh here we go.
1:54:14
misfire now. All right,
1:54:17
everybody. How about a super cut.
1:54:23
You know, it's always a good day. When we have a super cut
1:54:29
me this is the one that claims the social media is a danger to
1:54:33
democracy, social media. Social media. Yeah. Because social
1:54:38
media is a danger. I mean, January 9 is too But social
1:54:41
media is dangerous to democracy.
1:54:45
Oh, ready? Yeah.
1:54:47
More alarming.
1:54:48
Some media outlets publish the same fake stories without
1:54:52
checking facts. First, the sharing of biased and false news
1:54:55
has become all too common.
1:55:00
The first
1:55:05
unfortunately
1:55:11
controlled dangerous democracy This is extremely dangerous to
1:55:18
our democracy.

1:55:54

1:55:57
Oh goodness, it's so dangerous. There you go.
1:56:00
There's your mainstream media in a nutshell.
1:56:04
And we've got a new one to use. We need some alliteration TEA
1:56:07
TEA TEA TEA well can do to a TEA TEA TEA TEA. I
1:56:10
think that's the ever growing turmoil over Twitter.
1:56:13
Yes. Twitter everybody. turmoil over Twitter ABC announced
1:56:19
the ever growing turmoil over at Twitter scores of employees
1:56:23
apparently headed for the exit overnight, after Elon Musk
1:56:26
workers to decide whether they wanted to stay or go. A flood of
1:56:30
farewell messages rolling in a Twitter after Elon Musk give
1:56:34
employees an ultimatum commit to working in an extremely hardcore
1:56:39
fashion, including long hours at high intensity or leave with
1:56:43
three months severance. Now sorry to tell ABC News. Dozens
1:56:47
of employees are resigning with many sending the salute emoji
1:56:51
over the company's internal messaging board. Meanwhile,
1:56:54
Twitter employees were reportedly locked out of office
1:56:58
buildings overnight, giving the company more time to figure out
1:57:01
who still works there.
1:57:03
I've been talking to people all day one former executive for
1:57:06
recently exited told me that with all these departures, it's
1:57:10
going to be hard just to keep the lights on
1:57:13
over there. It comes as a group of them really,
1:57:16
is it going to be? I mean, so is there a guy who would keep the
1:57:20
lights on make sure the switches in the on position? It was
1:57:23
really hard to keep that on? I mean, that guy's gone. Now
1:57:26
someone might turn the lights off really ABC it's going to
1:57:29
be hard just to keep
1:57:30
the lights on. Over there. It comes as a group of Democratic
1:57:33
senators call for the Federal Trade Commission to investigate
1:57:37
Musk's recent actions. Musk has not responded to requests for
1:57:43
comment, but in a tweet last night, he seemingly joked about
1:57:46
how much he paid Twitter, roughly $44 billion posting How
1:57:50
do you make a small fortune in social media start out with a
1:57:53
large one. It's the latest turmoil since the billionaire
1:57:56
purchase Twitter, Musk immediately fired 50% of the
1:58:00
workforce. Then one of his ideas allowed users to pay for the
1:58:03
verification checkmark. Twitter pause the feature after people
1:58:07
were impersonating celebrities and brands. And last week, ABC
1:58:11
News obtained exclusive audio of musk in another meeting
1:58:15
demanding his employees returned to the office
1:58:17
as you can show up at an office and you do not show up at the
1:58:20
office, resignation accepted and a story.
1:58:23
Some advertisers have now paused spending on the platform until
1:58:27
there's more clarity on Twitter's direction. It Musk's
1:58:31
other tweet last night he said usage on Twitter just hit an all
1:58:34
time high.
1:58:38
Oh, I love it. I love it. I love it. Okay, so he
1:58:41
put the kibosh on work from home is what? They don't point that
1:58:46
out. They just say, you know, yeah,
1:58:47
but what I love is that, you know, like all companies, but
1:58:51
certainly Twitter, which has been around for a long time, and
1:58:54
certainly when it comes to trust and safety, and H R and all of
1:58:59
this, they had layers of middle management, layers and layers
1:59:04
and layers of people who Why would you show up and not doing
1:59:08
anything?
1:59:09
Yeah, I agree with that. They're not You're not doing anything.
1:59:12
Mazal just stay home.
1:59:13
I mean, I've built enough companies to know it just
1:59:15
happened to get all these people. And if there's enough
1:59:18
money, which there aren't there isn't anymore. Anyway, let's see
1:59:22
how CBS handled the alliteration tonight Twitter turmoil
1:59:25
continues. I mean, come on ABC and CBS tonight have
1:59:32
the PBS version of this. I don't think they use that. Or hold on.
1:59:35
Let
1:59:36
me finish this one. Tonight. The Twitter turmoil continues.
1:59:39
That's a good that's a three parter. Yeah, three but tonight
1:59:42
the Twitter turmoil continues tonight Twitter turmoil
1:59:45
continues to go on. Or Elon Musk is scrambling quite simply to
1:59:49
prevent the social media platform from collapsing.
1:59:52
Oh, no. It's collapsing. He said without evidence.
1:59:55
This after hundreds
2:00:00
exactly he said without evidence simply Trump it would be without
2:00:05
evidence.
2:00:06
Media platform from collapsing this after hundreds of vital
2:00:10
employees quit. CBS as Jonathan Viglione spoke was an engineer
2:00:14
who was laid off.
2:00:16
Oh, vital. Tonight as questions mount over Twitter's future.
2:00:20
Elon Musk offered little reassurance he has a permanent
2:00:23
plan, tweeting, what should Twitter do next?
2:00:26
The culture at Twitter under Elon Musk was definitely a
2:00:30
culture of fear of uncertainty of
2:00:34
Justine deCaires work for Twitter for three years before
2:00:38
being laid off, along with reportedly nearly half the staff
2:00:41
earlier this month to carers as part of a class action lawsuit
2:00:44
against the company. Well, Twitter's lights stay on.
2:00:48
I've seen systems start to fail already. And I expect to see
2:00:52
smaller things break and then slowly bigger things start to
2:00:56
break, especially with all the expertise that went out the door
2:00:59
yesterday,
2:01:00
this week, Musk gave remaining employees an ultimatum, pledge
2:01:04
to be extremely hardcore and work long hours, or resigned by
2:01:08
5pm. Thursday, fed up employees went online counting down the
2:01:12
deadline, the New York Times reporting as many as 1200 left,
2:01:16
but it's really the Twilight Zone. And it continues to get
2:01:18
more bizarre by the day, and I think must know with initially
2:01:23
that 50% Cut to now sort of ultimatums internally, it's
2:01:26
become a Game of Thrones.
2:01:28
Musk later tweeted a skull and crossbones, followed by this
2:01:32
image of a Twitter tombstone.
2:01:34
I mean, we had 1000s of engineers, and it's not like
2:01:37
they were sitting around twiddling their thumbs. Yeah,
2:01:40
they were.
2:01:41
And Musk has called for an emergency meeting for all
2:01:44
remaining engineers, in light of the uncertainty around Twitter
2:01:47
and out of an abundance of caution. CBS News is pausing its
2:01:51
activity on the social media site as it continues to monitor
2:01:54
the platform major.
2:01:56
Yeah, yeah. Why? Why?
2:01:59
Because they had what they don't have control over the messaging
2:02:02
the way they like it anymore. They're just trying to start an
2:02:05
exodus.
2:02:06
Why does CBS going to back off because they
2:02:10
built their own Mastodon instance?
2:02:13
I don't think so. Of course, your first answer was correct. I
2:02:17
thought you were gonna reiterate it. They control they lost
2:02:22
control. They lost
2:02:23
control. Yeah.
2:02:25
Not eaten Elon, the agent, maybe the agency lost control? Or
2:02:28
maybe who knows somebody lost control? I would say this is
2:02:31
nonsense. They, you know, you don't need 1000 engineers to
2:02:35
glorified website with a database back end. And, you
2:02:38
know,
2:02:40
I yeah, I mean, in essence, you're right now, Musk is
2:02:45
dropping breadcrumbs, which could be a total false trail.
2:02:50
But there's like pictures of a whiteboard. And it's kind of
2:02:54
interesting, because it shows all the different blocks of
2:03:00
logic that ultimately create what you see on Twitter. And
2:03:04
they use an audio knowledge, an analogy of mixers. So you have
2:03:09
the home timeline mixer and into that they've got a sub mixer of
2:03:14
the ads.
2:03:15
person's like the take off of that dev that parody. That was
2:03:20
on YouTube completely.
2:03:22
Yes. Like like the the whistleblowers were also
2:03:25
sketchy. Who did that whole half hour special of the of the dials
2:03:30
in the control room trying to mess with you. It's probably
2:03:34
exactly like that. And so they have knobs. What I'm saying is
2:03:40
not like an algo, Twitter is the algo. That whole thing is just
2:03:44
one algo. And if you see what's being mixed into your timeline,
2:03:48
I eat into your brain all the time. So that may just be
2:03:53
something old, because why would he show that? From the same
2:03:56
board room, not a board meeting, but like a conference room?
2:04:00
There's a video of him and I don't know these other players,
2:04:04
but they seem to be his confidants, and they're laughing
2:04:08
about what they should do. And actually, they're laughing about
2:04:10
all these idiot engineers, who for years have been trying to
2:04:14
create an edit button. Which, as you know, how long does
2:04:19
that take?
2:04:20
They have been working on an edit button for a year. It's a
2:04:23
hard it's tricky situation. It's incredibly complex. I mean, we
2:04:31
don't have a map that's as good as WeChat in China, like in
2:04:36
China, you like live on WeChat basically. It's like, everyone
2:04:41
was like that, like you live on WeChat you do payments, you do
2:04:43
everything. It's like, yeah, it's great. Basically checks
2:04:46
kick ass, and we don't have anything like WeChat outside of
2:04:49
China. So I was like, my idea would be like, how about if we
2:04:52
just copy WeChat pay for copies WeChat Yeah, yeah, pretty much,
2:05:02
I guess.
2:05:03
Okay, so Adam has a new theory,
2:05:06
by the way, and before you get to the theory, that's the way it
2:05:09
works in Silicon Valley. You see somebody doing something right
2:05:12
you copy it. You're How hard can that be? You don't steal their
2:05:16
code. Although they do that to
2:05:18
Baja. Here comes Adams new theory. What is one of the
2:05:22
largest investors in Tesla? I do not know Tencent. Oh, really?
2:05:31
Yes. Who has a big stake in WeChat? Tencent. How about this?
2:05:38
He not stealing the code. They're giving it to him
2:05:40
willingly. Why not? That's the that's the real way to do it.
2:05:47
Make a lot of noise, make a lot of bullcrap. And just bolt on
2:05:52
the WeChat engine. You're done. Yeah,
2:05:58
you're a great one. I can't No, I have no pushback on that,
2:06:02
unfortunately,
2:06:03
thank you, unfortunately, then you would be this brazen, then
2:06:08
you would be like, screw the engineers. Although I've had a
2:06:12
company with
2:06:12
pretty brazen they're they're not only screen, they're mocking
2:06:16
them
2:06:16
out right and publishing this.
2:06:19
Yeah, to make it worse.
2:06:23
So that would be the way to do it is just have the technology
2:06:27
stack already to just bolt it on putting out there probably all
2:06:31
they're doing is putting the finishing touches on the on the
2:06:34
design, just to make sure that Twitter looks good. And they may
2:06:39
have no ads, no ads, don't worry about it. We're good. We're
2:06:42
good. No ads. And it'll work for iPhone users first, because
2:06:47
Android is just just just slower with the with, I think the
2:06:51
implementation with iPhones what they really liked. I think it'll
2:06:55
roll out iOS first. But it feels to me like that's that would be
2:06:59
the strategy.
2:07:01
Now, like in the theory, I've got everything going on. And it
2:07:04
could have actually been pre done in advance before he even
2:07:09
made the $44 billion bid working with them. And unseen. Yes, yes.
2:07:14
And I think he already knows that the players because he's
2:07:17
got an investor there. They probably talk to the CEO and
2:07:21
say, Hey, what do you think? And he did way stammers. What do you
2:07:25
think if we took your technology from the WeChat and put it as a
2:07:30
core stack?
2:07:31
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, that's not how it went.
2:07:36
Oh. They call up. Hero. Iran. Iran. Iran, I have an idea. You
2:07:45
put WeChat in Twitter. Somehow this guy's become Japanese. I
2:07:49
don't know why, but that's what I'm thinking. I think they drove
2:07:54
it and I could be wrong about the pricing.
2:07:57
Was there a guy there was a with a guy Yes. Somebody somebody
2:08:02
comes up with this idea in advance? Yeah. Elon moles it
2:08:06
over he's got too big dough. Does the deal he backs off of
2:08:10
the deal for some reason because because
2:08:13
no time he needed to buy time I think was about the price at
2:08:16
all. He needed to buy some time. Maybe because maybe we chat or
2:08:20
maybe a 10 cent when Iran I know right? You know you have
2:08:24
problems. Now you have probably wrong
2:08:26
now. Let's go be 100% racist. Now you know why we're up at a
2:08:32
little nub at the corner of the big giant fediverse you It's you
2:08:39
do right. I'm sorry. I have to dial it back. Used to be able to
2:08:45
do that and it was hilarious. You become woke Dvorak.
2:08:50
That'll be the day just
2:08:52
just become woke. So
2:08:57
here's a funny thing. This is the truck you heard about the
2:09:00
Trump Twitter suit. This is a very funny lawsuit because he
2:09:05
could make out on this but it's got nothing to do with Elon but
2:09:08
is the funny Trump Twitter suit clip
2:09:10
right and no, I didn't know anything about this.
2:09:12
Former US President Donald Trump has asked an appeals court to
2:09:16
revive his lawsuit against Twitter over his permanent
2:09:19
suspension is November 14 filing alleges that government
2:09:22
officials use social media platforms as so called cat's
2:09:26
paws to suppress opinions, and that those opinions turn out to
2:09:30
be correct or at least debatable. The filing references
2:09:34
Hunter Biden's laptop, the COVID 19 pandemic and 2020 election
2:09:38
integrity. The Legal Brief draws an analogy with Galileo who was
2:09:42
convicted of heresy by the Catholic Church and reads the
2:09:45
Earth does revolve around the sun and it was Hunter Biden not
2:09:49
Russian disinformation agents who dropped off a laptop full of
2:09:52
incriminating evidence at a repair shop in Delaware. The
2:09:56
lawsuit against former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey and the
2:09:59
federal government It seeks compensatory and punitive
2:10:02
damages. It also demands a court order requiring Twitter to
2:10:06
immediately reinstate his account.
2:10:09
The cat's paw theory of liability,
2:10:13
this catspaw you should look it up.
2:10:15
Yeah, I'm looking at right now. It's crazy.
2:10:17
The this has cropped up in the news. I have never heard this
2:10:21
term until like a month ago. No. And now, this is the second or
2:10:27
third time I've heard it referenced. So somehow it's in
2:10:29
play. And I'm not sure why or how this is NTD. So it's
2:10:34
obviously they picked it up from someplace else, but I don't know
2:10:37
why it's in play, but it is. So catspaw was one of these little
2:10:40
hit raises recently,
2:10:41
or HERE WE GO recently. This is from 2011, the supreme so it's
2:10:45
an old one. Supreme Court Chateau 2011, the Supreme Court
2:10:50
issued an opinion upholding the US catspaw theory of employer
2:10:54
liability, under which an employer may be liable for
2:10:57
discrimination in an adverse employment decision against an
2:11:01
employee where the ultimate decision maker is unbiased and
2:11:04
has no discriminatory motives. Under this theory theory, the
2:11:10
discriminatory motive of a non decision maker is imputed to the
2:11:13
decision maker and employer where the discriminator has some
2:11:17
significant influence that leads to the adverse employment
2:11:20
action.
2:11:22
Hmm. It's like top down. So in other words, if you're like a
2:11:27
minion, and you do take some action that turns out to be
2:11:30
discriminatory, discriminatory, because you are influenced by
2:11:34
the corporate culture, which is influenced mostly by the CEO and
2:11:38
dorsal Dorsey, in this case, Dorsey in this case, then they
2:11:43
then the cat's paw CASPA has something to do with that. I
2:11:48
don't know what it has to do with cats.
2:11:50
Is it trying to basically sue someone personally around the
2:11:53
shield of corporate liability? I think that could be Yeah, it
2:11:57
sounds like
2:11:58
whatever it is, Trump's got, you know, it's Trump's not
2:12:02
unfamiliar with legal shenanigans.
2:12:07
I like it catspaw to a cat's
2:12:09
paws employer to take a look at it. I like it. Yeah. Okay, so
2:12:13
there's about a big story that came up. And I do have a lot of
2:12:17
clips for this from PBS and New Tang. New Tang is the Saudi
2:12:24
prince all of a sudden by double your
2:12:26
double your excitement? We got a new tank and PBS children.
2:12:32
Ready for a tune out? Now's the time.
2:12:34
Hey, parents don't give your kids any sugar. They'll be
2:12:37
bopping off the walls when they
2:12:38
hear this. Yeah, very funny. So yes, the
2:12:42
Saudi prince I know. It's like all of a sudden, we're
2:12:46
jacked up about this. Yeah. And there's some good arguments. In
2:12:49
fact, the better arguments come out of PBS, even though they're
2:12:52
a little dull, but it's PBS. And it's like they I'll give you us
2:12:59
with some some one summary, which is the head of state. The
2:13:03
idea is that the Saudi prince a Biden hates became the prime
2:13:08
minister under some circumstance, and the head of
2:13:11
state is exempt from certain kinds of legal actions. So So
2:13:17
Biden stepping in it for no apparent reason Oh,
2:13:20
this is not under the cat's paw law.
2:13:24
True. So let's play this New Tang Dynasty stuff, which is a
2:13:28
little funnier. This is Saudi prince immunity. One
2:13:31
divided administration Thursday determined that Saudi Arabia's
2:13:34
Crown Prince should be granted immunity in a lawsuit over the
2:13:38
killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. And today's Jessica
2:13:41
Beatty has more on what many consider a controversial uturn
2:13:45
on the part of President Biden.
2:13:47
The Biden administration has suggested immunity for Saudi
2:13:50
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. This despite the fact
2:13:54
that the administration has said Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington
2:13:57
Post journalist was murdered in 2018. At the princess direction.
2:14:02
Bin Salman, who denied the allegations was recently made
2:14:05
the Saudi Prime Minister. Because of this, the
2:14:07
administration says the prince now qualifies for immunity as a
2:14:11
foreign head of government, the head of democracy for the Arab
2:14:15
world Now Sarah Leah Whitson criticized Biden's immunity
2:14:19
suggestion Friday, saying Biden previously promised to hold the
2:14:23
Crown Prince accountable
2:14:25
to instead two years later, have him intervene in a judicial
2:14:29
proceeding that he did not have to intervene in to instead say
2:14:34
that he is immune from prosecution to literally block
2:14:38
his prosecution is a pretty shocking development.
2:14:43
Yeah, that's interesting. Okay, because he's a head of state or
2:14:47
former head of state or what is well, he's
2:14:50
a prime minister means he's the head of state is some sort but
2:14:54
everybody acknowledges that the head of state is the king of
2:14:57
Saudi Arabia say so. That is like a point we continue this
2:15:03
week we're not falling for it. And so so why is Biden you know
2:15:07
Biden is just I guess someone said You know, you're gonna have
2:15:10
to do it because buying these needs to get that oil pumping.
2:15:13
Yes, but that's not working. Can't even
2:15:17
get his own blood pressure up. Let's go with Saudi prince
2:15:20
immunity.
2:15:21
The federal lawsuit against bin Salman was brought by Khashoggi,
2:15:24
his fiancee and Watson's group. It alleges a team of assassins
2:15:28
kidnapped, drugged, tortured and killed Khashoggi at the Saudi
2:15:32
consulate in Istanbul and dismembered his body. Khashoggi
2:15:36
His remains were never found. Whitson says Biden's move gives
2:15:40
the Crown Prince a green light
2:15:42
by shielding him from accountability is giving him a
2:15:45
green light to keep at it keep attacking people in United
2:15:49
States as he has been doing because they criticize him keep
2:15:53
jailing women and men in Saudi Arabia because they have an
2:15:56
opinion about the politics of the country. The filing,
2:15:59
however, said the Biden administration takes no view on
2:16:03
the merits of the present suit, while calling the murder
2:16:06
heinous. The administration did say it imposed visa restrictions
2:16:11
and other penalties on lower ranking Saudi officials
2:16:15
that always give it to the lower rankers stick it to them. Well,
2:16:21
now we have a bit more sobering report from PBS. That was
2:16:28
exciting. Now the real stuff comes Okay. State Department
2:16:32
Saudis and WTF one this is actually kind of there's a
2:16:36
number of interesting things in this in this report is
2:16:39
the State Department issued a legal opinion yesterday that
2:16:42
said Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin
2:16:45
Salman, known as MBS has immunity from US courts. The
2:16:50
Crown Prince has been sued in the US by the fiance of
2:16:53
journalist Jamal Khashoggi, he was murdered and Saudis Istanbul
2:16:57
consulate in 2018, and US intelligence believes MBS
2:17:01
ordered the killing. Meantime, for months, the Biden
2:17:05
administration has been pushing Saudi Arabia to increase oil
2:17:08
production amid high gas prices. So should the US have been
2:17:13
tougher with Saudi Arabia? For that we get two views. John
2:17:17
bellandur was the Legal Adviser to the State Department during
2:17:20
the George W. Bush administration. And Gregory
2:17:23
Stanton is a former State Department lawyer and founder
2:17:26
and president of genocide watch a nonprofit that seeks to stop
2:17:30
genocide and its perpetrators.
2:17:33
Okay, just the two guests. What do you want to genocide watch
2:17:38
guy giving opinions on this particular topic for Well, no,
2:17:42
he's idiotic.
2:17:43
He's just there to create noise about Saudi Arabia, you know,
2:17:47
killing the killing the Yemenis.
2:17:50
Well, he never brings that into the bridge. I just wanted was
2:17:54
doing there.
2:17:55
You asked me you know, it makes no sense.
2:17:59
But, but he's there anyway, because he's a good chatterbox,
2:18:02
yak, yak yak, she talks well. So here we go with the part two of
2:18:06
this.
2:18:06
Welcome to you both. Thank you for being here. Let's jump right
2:18:09
in. Greg, what do you make of this call by the US? Was this
2:18:13
the right decision?
2:18:14
I think the State Department got this wrong. The one fact is that
2:18:20
the law here is the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of the
2:18:25
United States. And in the opinion they gave, they only
2:18:29
cited customary international law. In fact, the Foreign
2:18:33
Sovereign Immunities Act has a number of exceptions that have
2:18:36
been actually passed by Congress and signed into law. The 2008
2:18:41
Defense Act was accompanied with a an exception to allow people
2:18:46
to sue certain governments that were declared to be terrorist
2:18:50
states, Iran, but then in 2016, there was another act passed the
2:18:55
justice for victims of terrorist act that specifically takes away
2:18:59
the need for the State Department to designate a
2:19:01
country as a terrorist country. And it makes it possible to
2:19:05
actually sue anybody involved in murder, in torture, in hijacking
2:19:15
and hostage taking.
2:19:17
This should have fit under that X. I
2:19:19
think that it's very clear that NBS was responsible for the
2:19:23
murder and for the terror, the torture of Jamal Khashoggi, let
2:19:29
me bring in John, on that point that I mean, President Biden has
2:19:32
said and he did agree with the CIA assessment that NBS did, or
2:19:35
the operation that led to Khashoggi killing. So why is the
2:19:39
murder case?
2:19:39
Well, I think for the reasons you just mentioned, this was a
2:19:42
very uncomfortable if not unpalatable decision for the
2:19:47
Biden administration to have to make given the really awful
2:19:50
circumstances of the killing of for Jamal Khashoggi. But the
2:19:54
administration was simply complying with its obligations
2:19:57
under international law. Why It's, yeah.
2:20:02
What obligations under international law does he speak
2:20:05
of?
2:20:06
Well, let's play part three, you will find out.
2:20:09
International law recognizes that heads of state and
2:20:12
government, like now Prime Minister, Ben Saman, enjoy
2:20:16
immunity from civil suits or in fact, from criminal prosecutions
2:20:21
in the courts of other countries. So under
2:20:24
international law, he had immunity here. And for that
2:20:27
reason, going back decades, every administration has
2:20:32
asserted immunity on behalf of any foreign head of state who is
2:20:36
sued here in the United States, often for really horrific
2:20:41
actions. When I was legal adviser, the State Department, I
2:20:44
had to sign a immunity determination for Pope Benedict,
2:20:48
who was sued with respect to the clergy scandal. So this was not
2:20:51
a favor to Saudi Arabia. This was simply compelled by
2:20:56
international law
2:20:57
break, what do you say to that decades of precedent here?
2:21:00
I think the reason that that doesn't hold here is that MBS is
2:21:06
not the head of state in Saudi Arabia. Mr. Right? Well, they
2:21:10
just made him Prime Minister. So he might be able to, you know,
2:21:13
argue this point. But the fact is, the head of state in Saudi
2:21:16
Arabia is the king. This is just a prince. So the only one would
2:21:22
have this right under international law would be the
2:21:25
king. What
2:21:26
what would be the US options? In this case? What would you have
2:21:28
liked to seen happen?
2:21:29
What I would have liked to see is that he could be sued, and
2:21:33
that is specifically allowed under the Foreign Sovereign
2:21:36
Immunities Act and its exceptions. He's not being tried
2:21:41
criminally here. This is a lawsuit to get a compensation
2:21:45
for the murder of a man, a very great man, in fact. So for me,
2:21:50
this is not a case where it was governed by international law at
2:21:54
all
2:21:54
such a great man that the pronunciation of his last name
2:21:57
is changed Runa yet again.
2:22:01
To that, everyone's up to speed on this.
2:22:06
You know, Arch Enemy of the Saudis is Qatar, Qatar. Are they
2:22:11
not our enemies? She's one of them.
2:22:14
We know is Iran. Right,
2:22:16
right. But But Qatar actually retaliated against the US making
2:22:19
this move. Did you realize that?
2:22:21
No, this is news to me.
2:22:23
soccer fans are getting ready to celebrate Sunday's World Cup
2:22:26
kickoff, but the party plans got downgraded after host country,
2:22:29
Qatar banned alcohol at the stadium. So yeah, this sudden
2:22:33
reversal surprised Budweiser, the global beer giant paid $75
2:22:37
million to be the official beer sponsor. And now deleted
2:22:40
Budweiser tweet captured the corporate mood. Well, this is
2:22:45
awkward.
2:22:46
That's a direct attack on American commerce.
2:22:49
I never thought of that, because I knew about this. And Qatar is
2:22:54
a fundamentalist Muslim country. And is always surprised that
2:23:02
they would serve beer there anyway. But it was initially
2:23:08
allowed it seems to me and now they pull back on you might be
2:23:11
right. But the problem with your argument is Budweiser is not an
2:23:16
American company.
2:23:17
Hi, right is Belgian now you've right. Good point. Well, there
2:23:22
goes my theory was an attack against Europe.
2:23:29
No, I think it was just I think they don't. Here's the thing. I
2:23:31
think there's evidence of not ponying up enough. Yes.
2:23:35
Did you? Not? Where did where was it? What did Biden make an
2:23:39
announcement about this? Or is this just something that got out
2:23:41
there and pick him out of the State Department? But they
2:23:44
didn't do a huge announcement. Someone caught it and started
2:23:46
making trouble. That's what it's
2:23:48
I don't know if it was huge or not. I did they weren't they're
2:23:50
not covering this properly. Now. They don't we don't see blink in
2:23:54
North Africa course not. Oh,
2:23:59
I don't understand this. I'd like to know. I mean, that does
2:24:02
have to do with 911 is it's can't be just a home. It has to
2:24:06
be 911 because there was all these families who want to sue
2:24:10
Saudi Arabia for 911
2:24:13
No, I think this really has nothing to do with anything
2:24:15
except kissing his ass to get him to pump more oil.
2:24:18
Why don't they just pump more American oil? I mean, why did
2:24:21
why?
2:24:22
You can't do that. It's gonna change. Climate change. I don't
2:24:28
know. Here's a good story for you. Yes. 55 tons of pot.
2:24:37
Spanish police say they confiscated over 55 tons of
2:24:41
marijuana, the largest amount of the drug ever seized in the
2:24:44
country.
2:24:45
How was this good news for me? How was this good
2:24:47
news and weighing more than adult humpback whale farms have
2:24:52
been dismantled in northeastern region of the country, and 20
2:24:55
people were detained on suspected electricity fraud and
2:24:59
offense. is against public health. All the marijuana farms
2:25:03
were concealed as legal hemp plantations. They were
2:25:06
registered by a trading company and located among other
2:25:09
warehouses, agents seized over 187,000 plants and 21 tons of
2:25:15
marijuana buds between June and October. And a separate bust
2:25:19
earlier this month, Spain announced it seized over 35 tons
2:25:23
of marijuana a record setting amount at the time. Spanish
2:25:27
officials say that 55 tons of the drug could have an estimated
2:25:31
value of almost $130 million.
2:25:35
I like that I like this someone's going on here. I like
2:25:38
this is a war on drugs. Obviously. I liked the
2:25:41
comparison with the humpback whale. I think the Belgian
2:25:46
authorities are are close second. They announced according
2:25:50
to VRT news, they have their agents out you know Belgian has
2:25:56
big ports, big big ports, you know rivals, Antwerp. The port
2:26:00
of Antwerp is important port.
2:26:04
They've in Antwerp in Belgium. Yes. So I'm saying Antwerp.
2:26:08
rivals and tour.
2:26:10
Oh, rivals Rotterdam is what I meant to say. Rivals Rotterdam.
2:26:13
Antwerp. In water. Rotterdam is a huge port
2:26:16
when it comes to drugs. Belgian authorities now say hey, we have
2:26:21
a see so much coke. It's overloading the incinerators.
2:26:28
That's a good one.
2:26:30
That's a good one. Yeah.
2:26:34
Lauren, that season anything here? We just let it come
2:26:36
through. And it's fentanyl. And it's Joe Biden. Not just job so
2:26:42
bowburn It looks like bowburn Our friend Beau Burgess. You're
2:26:45
not my friend. She's your friend. She is now your friend
2:26:47
Barbara
2:26:47
has never been my friend. She won't even return false.
2:26:50
Yes, because you met her on only fans. Yeah,
2:26:54
Filbert wins in Colorado. Maybe
2:26:56
representative Lauren Bovard has declared victory over challenger
2:27:00
Adam Frisch. Even as the race appears headed to a recount I
2:27:03
call bullcrap over leading fresh by just 551 votes. That's
2:27:09
according to unofficial results from the Colorado Secretary of
2:27:11
State's office today.
2:27:13
Tell me you have no other ISOs but that one.
2:27:16
I've got that one. Okay, but I have another one too.
2:27:20
Ah, good one.
2:27:23
I just couldn't resist now.
2:27:26
I have two stories on Ukraine. This is boots on the ground from
2:27:30
one of our producers from January 1. Poland will be
2:27:37
forcing Ukrainian refugees to pay for their accommodation.
2:27:41
Cool. I would hope so. According to polish officials. This will
2:27:45
motivate U
