It was disgusting. Adam curry, John C. Dvorak. Sunday,
0:04
December 11 2022. This is your award winning keep our nation
0:08
media assassination episode 1500 11.
0:11
This is no agenda, coaching my
0:14
luggage and broadcasting live from the heart of the Texas hill
0:18
country here in FEMA Region number six in the morning,
0:20
everybody. I'm Adam curry
0:22
in the northern Silicon Valley where we finally had a gully
0:26
washer. I'm Jhansi Dvorak.
0:29
Buzzkill. Okay writing that down as his show title already a
0:34
gully washer, the gully washer, you have not heard of a gully
0:38
washer in at least 30 years.
0:42
We haven't had one for 30 years you had good rain
0:45
I take it that was good. It was gully washer, the washer got it
0:48
washed
0:49
clean the streets it cleaned the roads
0:52
nice I was I'm clutching my luggage John because the
0:56
funniest story just you can't make this up when it comes to
1:00
our biggest problems in the United States and around the
1:02
world is energy it's how are we going to afford energy do we you
1:07
know if we go to nuclear energy we need to smart people who can
1:11
you know store the older systems so we can bring in the newer
1:15
systems the older waste and and but the guy who's responsible
1:20
for that in the US government is just he's got a he's got like
1:23
some major brain damage.
1:26
Which brain damage person is this we're talking about?
1:29
Well, this is the guy Britain who was arrested for stealing
1:32
luggage for stealing
1:33
way you know he was caught twice doing this it turns out. An
1:38
Energy Department official is accused of stealing luggage from
1:41
Harry Reid International Airport. The ATMs Now
1:43
investigators learning a felony warrant has been issued for Sam
1:46
Britain, a Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Biden
1:49
administration. Now he's accused of a similar crime in the
1:52
Minneapolis St. Paul Airport.
1:54
This is a developing story. The guy is clearly insane. This is a
1:59
mental deficiency.
2:02
This I have to assume because first he was busted by stealing
2:05
that really high end piece of $2,300 luggage in Minneapolis
2:09
taking the tag off while being videotaped. Same thing I believe
2:14
things that he got caught McCarran said this The McCarran
2:17
thing was earlier it turns out Oh, I didn't realize that. Okay.
2:22
But what's interesting is you have to now assume that he's
2:25
been doing this most of his life.
2:28
I was talking with Tina about this. I said, Yeah, you'd be
2:31
surprised. He's also worked in retail. So she has experience.
2:35
It's often really well to do people who shoplift and steal
2:40
things like this. Who really have you know, their life is
2:44
actually too easy. You see, very affluent, affluent women will
2:49
shoplift the stupidest things but this guy I think he just
2:52
likes some kind of pain. You know, he clearly likes you know,
2:55
being in the bondage and dressing up like dogs or
2:58
whatever he was into and then trying to worm into some some
3:03
ladies girdle this is this is mental. Oh yeah. Yeah. Or how
3:11
many more but he's in charge of nuclear waste.
3:15
Well, he's he's kind of a waste himself. But clearly he knows
3:18
and he just wasn't in Detroit this this was just a totally
3:20
bullcrap thing. He wasn't really so I'm
3:23
thinking because I when I heard about stealing from McCarran
3:31
when I've gone in and out of these airports and seeing these
3:33
luggage things going around around identity at the
3:36
interactor there's everyone's gone there's a bunch of and
3:39
they're taken off by somebody comes in takes them off and puts
3:41
them someplace because there's a guy didn't pick them out or
3:44
whatever you've noticed this it's so it would be so easy to
3:49
just walk off then you'll random luggage. It seems to me I've
3:53
always felt this way I've always felt was one of the most
3:55
insecure parts of the airport. Why would they do this? Just
3:58
make a pot especially a pile of bags take what you want,
4:02
you probably won't you probably won't remember what happened to
4:04
me twice when I was flying back and forth between London and San
4:08
Francisco as a part of my compensation package I can't
4:13
remember how it happened but I had negotiated a to me suitcase
4:17
like a $1,500 to me suitcase because I was traveling with my
4:21
whole my life back and forth every couple of weeks and twice
4:27
twice someone else with the identical to me suitcase which
4:30
is not one you see all the time, pick mine up and then walks
4:35
right out and got all the way home before they realize oh, you
4:37
know there are other people with the same suitcase and one of
4:40
them even said oh well yeah, okay, well you know, you can
4:43
pick it up tomorrow to what? I have your suitcase
4:51
don't remember this was funny though. Yeah, it happened
4:54
happened. That's why I always tell people traveling travel tip
4:58
traveled to yellow duct tape. big X on the bay. You're that
5:04
guy. I'm that guy. J has done it too. She puts a big big some art
5:10
on a bag that you very distinct. Yeah,
5:12
Tina puts like a like a pink scarf or something. And yeah.
5:17
Oh, yeah. Tide. Yeah. But you're the guy was a yellow, the big
5:22
yellow X, I
5:23
believe me is a winner. I think I took my yellow exit bag seems
5:30
unlikely? Well, I've always felt it was insecure. And although,
5:35
you know, they obviously have cameras around. But facial
5:39
recognition still not what it is. And if you're wearing these,
5:42
I would say a double mask, a mask and a hat. And you get out
5:46
to plenty put your mask on because the COVID you put a hat
5:48
on, grab any bag, they're not ever going to you're never
5:51
unless they catch it as you leave, which they won't because
5:54
no one's I've never seen any evidence that they do, I think
5:57
is ripe for for theft. I'm stunned that they're so weak
6:02
about the about the security of those bags.
6:05
And what do you suggest Professor Dvorak working to do?
6:11
Well, they can have some system that is more mechanized, where
6:15
the bag the bags have a tag with a number on it. They could, you
6:19
know, and it's in numerical order they can as the bags
6:23
coming off some you know somebody should be taking the
6:26
bags aside and putting them in a room where you have to go up
6:29
with your with your tag, say here's my tag like you do with a
6:32
coat check. You can do it with coats at a theater. You can do
6:35
it with coats at a restaurant. Why can you do with these bags?
6:38
The bags are loaded with valuables the coats and at the
6:41
theater and restaurant usually aren't. And they can do it
6:45
there.
6:45
No, that's an interesting point. I think it's because of course
6:48
there's no way to charge people for that service and the
6:50
airports are not going to charge their their customers which of
6:53
the airlines are going to change charge them more for it. That's
6:57
probably just a cost thing. But I definitely right it's a good
7:00
point. We're tracking we're tracking everything else about
7:02
everybody that yellow because they don't care what it is.
7:07
Don't worry. We delivered you. Here's your bag. Bye. That's it.
7:12
That's i That's exactly what it is.
7:16
They don't get the bag when it comes out of the chute, your
7:19
fault.
7:19
They don't care. I just don't care. I could have figured that
7:23
one out. This back to energy, though not about nuclear energy.
7:28
There's there's stuff going on that I think is being poorly
7:32
reported. And with that, I'm fine with that. I mean, if I get
7:37
if I have to get the story from the money, honey on Fox
7:40
Business, it's being poorly reported. And here she is.
7:44
Welcome back Chinese dictators, Eugene ping, just back from what
7:47
he is calling a milestone meeting with Saudi Prince
7:49
Mohammed bin Salman, after telling Arab leaders on Friday
7:53
that he wants to buy oil and gas with the Chinese yuan, instead
7:57
of the US dollar, furthering his goal to internationalize the
8:00
Chinese currency and replace the dollar as the reserve currency
8:03
of the world.
8:06
So right after our President goes there, and you know, with
8:10
clutching hands, they Oh, man, can you can help us a little
8:13
bit. So this is this. I don't understand the whole deal of the
8:18
petro dollar is you guys always sell it in dollars and will
8:23
protect you. Yeah. And so did when did that break?
8:28
When Biden got pret became president he started threatening
8:30
them.
8:31
Here's what I have a follow up from this is, who is this? This
8:37
is a four star general Jack Keane. Of course, when it comes
8:41
to energy, you might as well bring in a general which means
8:44
there's a lot more behind this.
8:46
I want to zero in on this meeting that you should pay had
8:48
with Arab leaders. And
8:50
that's really that's really who they went to find to comment on.
8:54
This is the as a general Tell me this?
8:58
Guy's he's the money how he spoke?
8:59
Oh, there you go. And the significance of him now talking
9:02
more about buying oil and gas from the Saudis, with the
9:05
Chinese you want? Yeah, well,
9:07
first of all, President Xi was always going to have a
9:09
relationship with Saudi Arabia in the Middle East. He's
9:12
completely dependent on Persian Gulf Oil 62%. And he's the
9:16
world's largest importer of oil writ large. But what is actually
9:20
happening here, because the Biden administration is missteps
9:24
with Saudi Arabia and the Arabs in general and going immediately
9:27
to appease Iran at the beginning of the administration, the
9:30
Chinese clearly recognize that there's a vacuum here and they
9:35
want to fill it. And the Arabs also recognize that they're not
9:39
sure the United States is going to be there for them, as they
9:42
have been in the past. This is a relationship that goes all the
9:44
way back to Franklin Delano Roosevelt at the end of World
9:48
War Two. And we've always had issues with Arabs human rights
9:53
and the differences with the United States but national
9:55
security took precedence what we're seeing here Maria,
9:59
President Xi He met with the regional leaders of the entire
10:03
Middle East and North Africa. So 20 Something nations. This is a
10:07
slight paradigm shift that's beginning to take place here.
10:11
And it says strategic significance that a lot of the
10:13
media a slight is is missing. It wasn't just a meeting with
10:19
Mohammed bin Salman from Saudi Arabia. He hosted this regional
10:23
Summit, something similar that President Trump did in 2017,
10:27
when he met with the regional leaders being hosted by Mohammed
10:31
bin Salman. So we've come a long way since July of 2017. Because
10:36
this relationship between the United States and the Arab world
10:40
is tarnished. I have one recommendation here for the
10:42
administration, work with the incoming Prime Minister of
10:46
Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu who wants to strengthen and
10:50
expand the Abraham accords that means relationship with Arabs
10:54
and Israelis work with him and have him help you renewed a
10:58
relationship with the Arabs
11:01
This is a ain't gonna work that's not good.
11:05
I have some clips on this. Good Good, good, good it These clips
11:08
are big, go back and cut you. It has been covered a little bit.
11:12
But it's always been like, well, like NTD which would definitely
11:17
be covering but let's face it, I have three clips. This is China
11:20
moving in on the Saudis. Clip one.
11:24
Chinese leader Xi Jinping arrived in Saudi Arabia today he
11:28
will attend meetings that could result in billions of dollars
11:31
invested in the country entities Daniel Monaghan has the story.
11:34
Saudi Arabia aims to increase trade with Beijing and discuss
11:38
regional security when China's leader visits Riyadh this week.
11:41
The Kingdom seeks to expand superpower ties beyond the
11:44
increasingly fractious alliance with the United States Crown
11:48
Prince Mohammed bin Salman is expected to mark Xi Jinping
11:51
arrival on Wednesday with a lavish welcome diplomats in the
11:54
region say such a welcome may contrast starkly with the muted
11:58
reception offered to US President Joe Biden in July, the
12:01
world's biggest oil exporter is reshaping its foreign policy to
12:05
reflect the new realities of global power. This as it
12:08
perceives American disengagement from the Middle East and the US
12:12
administration's direct talk about human rights. Besides
12:15
rolling out the red carpet for bilateral meetings with Xi
12:18
during his two day visit, the Saudi rulers will also convene
12:22
fellow Gulf leaders for a summit with him. The United States has
12:25
expressed concerns about growing Chinese involvement in sensitive
12:29
infrastructure projects in the Gulf. For decades, the US has
12:32
ensured Saudi Arabia security and remains its main defense
12:36
supplier, Crown Prince Mohammed better known as MBs, has
12:40
resisted previous US efforts to constrain Saudi action. This
12:44
includes its war in Yemen, and it appeared to welcome the
12:47
reportedly transactional approach a former US President
12:50
Donald Trump.
12:52
Oh my goodness, it's over.
12:57
Well, part two of this is is funny because they talk about
13:01
how, even though by when Biden did go over there, and he has
13:05
all these excuses for going there, it wasn't necessarily to
13:08
get the price of oil down or price of gasoline, in this case
13:11
down. He was hated. Obviously, he listened to part two of this.
13:18
The ceremonial aspect of it was, you know, they gave pomp and
13:23
circumstance to the Chinese guy and they didn't do any of that
13:27
for Biden.
13:27
When Trump came into Saudi Arabia in 2017 MBS demonstrated
13:32
the warmth of their relations with an extravagant welcome
13:34
ceremony that the diplomat said was expected to resemble what he
13:38
will offer she Trump left Riyadh with more than $100 billion in
13:42
defense contracts. The Chinese delegation this week is expected
13:46
to sign agreements were $30 billion with Saudi Arabia. China
13:50
sees Saudi Arabia as its key ally in the Middle East due not
13:53
only to its oil exports, but also a shared suspicion of
13:56
Western interference, especially on issues such as Human Rights.
14:00
Meanwhile, a federal judge in Washington dismissed a lawsuit
14:04
against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on December
14:07
6 through the 2018 alleged murder of Washington Post
14:10
columnist Jamal Khashoggi, the judge cited President Joe
14:14
Biden's granting of immunity. Joe Biden, as a presidential
14:17
candidate had said his plan was to make the Saudis pay the price
14:21
for the alleged murder and make them in fact the pariah that
14:24
they are
14:25
right. And so it didn't really work out when he said, Hey, man,
14:28
I grant you immunity. Sand over it. We're all good. Didn't work.
14:34
She forgot that he just he'd called him a horrible dude.
14:39
Yeah, well, that's he doesn't remember that. Probably. But
14:42
here's the Saudi. This is a different clip. This is the last
14:44
clip. This is the Saudi China update. I think it got this
14:47
yesterday.
14:48
Across the Persian Gulf. China's President Xi Jinping held high
14:51
profile meetings today with Saudi Arabia's rulers in a visit
14:55
being watched in Washington. She was taken through the royal
14:59
palace in Riyadh by the Crown Prince, they signed technology
15:03
and other agreements and rejected criticism of their
15:06
human rights records.
15:11
These two guys get together. You're doing you have now screw
15:15
that bull crap.
15:16
This has got to be on purpose isn't I mean, no one is this
15:19
stupid. No one No one this has to be purposeful. It's we're
15:24
tanking something or or everything. And the same is
15:27
happening in Europe. You know, this is just a list of stories
15:32
in the show notes which is well worth checking out. You can also
15:34
search them at Bing it.io So McCrone he's pissed off. He's
15:41
like stop spreading panic about potential blackouts in French
15:46
that stop spreading panic. And the reason why is because all
15:51
these telecommunication services and electricity providers are
15:56
saying, Hey, we may have blackouts make sure make sure
16:00
that your that you've got backups for your telecom
16:02
networks for your emergency call services. So you know McCrone is
16:07
just doing wishful thinking, probably. And they've actually
16:12
been shutting down their reactors, they used to have 56
16:15
nuclear reactors, they're now down to 36.
16:18
So they had that they had 56 Oh, Cha Frant? Well, we know they
16:22
had a lot because their whole country is powered by a nuclear.
16:25
But I didn't know that they shut down 20. Of course, that's what
16:28
you have to do. What a bunch of dumb shits.
16:32
And then so now the Queen Ursula, this whole idea of the
16:36
the cap on dirty Russian oil and gas. Well, that's not sitting
16:41
very well. Six European Union countries, including Germany and
16:45
the Netherlands have warned that they cannot accept other member
16:48
states attempts to lower the level at which the block will
16:51
cap gas prices. Like no, no, we can't do this. We're concerned
16:55
by the by the lowering of the figures is the figures of the
17:00
gas price cap ceiling and the triggers cannot be lowered any
17:03
further. They say In fact, if you lower it any further, it's
17:05
going to trigger prices going up. So this is a this is a
17:09
cluster F of epic proportions. It's it's crazy. Australia is
17:15
trying to do the same thing. Capping coal and gas prices. Why
17:19
do they think this will work?
17:23
Because it has never worked in the past. So it must work this
17:25
time. It's never worked in the past. So this is going to be the
17:30
charm. Yeah, time's the charm.
17:33
And then so just just to add to this Putin on the other side.
17:39
He's saying, you know, we really need to reach an agreement here
17:43
to end the Ukraine conflict. He's now pretty much saying it
17:46
out in the open, and he has little threat
17:48
attached to it. President Putin was attending an Economic Forum
17:51
in the Kyrgyz capital, Bishkek, he said he would be willing to
17:55
negotiate a deal in Ukraine, but he didn't trust Western leaders.
18:02
Still, in the end, it will be necessary to talk I have said
18:05
many times that we are ready for agreements we are open. But this
18:10
makes us think of course, think about who we are dealing with.
18:14
He was also asked about
18:15
conscription and reports poorly equipped recruits for being
18:19
thrown into the front line. The problem with
18:22
this, I should say that there were problems and judging by
18:25
what you say, they still remain, although they assure me that
18:29
there are fewer and fewer of them and there are less acute
18:33
than before this guy's to
18:35
the g7 Turkish shell radio and television TRT is pro Russia of
18:39
course price cap imposed on Russia even though they're a
18:42
NATO can oil imports this week, a threat to cut production.
18:47
I've already said that we simply will not sell to those countries
18:50
that make such decisions. We will think maybe even I'm not
18:54
saying that this is a decision. But we will think about a
18:58
possible reduction in production.
19:00
There you go. This is crazy.
19:04
So so the interesting thing about that clip was the
19:08
commentary at the beginning where he says and he makes a big
19:12
fuss about it we I don't trust I would love to negotiate and the
19:15
end is right now but I don't trust Western leaders. And this
19:20
is just a you know, the long, long thinking long arc of the
19:26
James Baker deal non deal deal than Detroit was the deal. The
19:31
deal James Baker did our guide not not the current James Baker,
19:36
but the guy was in the State Department. And as long as James
19:40
Baker's
19:40
it's kind of kind of irritating and they're all dicks that's
19:43
what's interesting.
19:46
Is it baby it could be whatever the case is that James Baker
19:50
said to Putin, uh, don't worry about it. Once they you know,
19:53
when when when the Russian started throwing away, the
19:56
Soviet Union fell apart and it just started spinning off these
19:59
guys Countries don't worry about it. NATO's not gonna move an
20:02
inch towards you. And it kept moving an inch towards him. And
20:06
then they finally called him out on it. And they said, I don't
20:09
know. Oh, yeah, they said Devo was in writing wasn't writing,
20:13
so it doesn't count. That's what we said to them. I
20:16
know we're dicks more much seems more now. You want some ultimate
20:23
propaganda. And this is this was this is well done. And of course
20:27
it slips through on RT. So we exchanged Brittney Griner for
20:31
Victor boat bout boot is when I have a clip first that I want to
20:36
play for you.
20:37
No, I was gonna say I have a bunch of stuff about this. About
20:41
this situation, but then we go on. But go on.
20:45
There you go. Thank you, Kara. I'm gonna intake
20:49
okay, I realized that this annoys you so much. I'm gonna
20:52
stop doing it. But unlike you,
20:55
yes. You can't you don't have the skill. No, I
20:58
can. I can. Unlike you, I can't do it. I can't stop dead in my
21:05
tracks. Which I've said it before on this show. I admire
21:10
Thank you. Is it boot or bout how will we pronounce Victor's
21:14
vote isn't pronounced Bucha vote. So he goes on our tea
21:17
fresh back from from the exchange and throws out a
21:21
massive sigh up towards the American people.
21:27
And nobody Manning nays, I figured out we're sharing way
21:30
more common. Middle America is a very much familiar, look, it's
21:37
the same size they have. It's the same kind of this. And when
21:40
you talk to them, there is nothing there even to beef about
21:43
we are naturally, you know, born not to be enemies. And whenever
21:49
there's conflict, it's the least, you know, every, you
21:53
know, American I met in a prison who is from rural area was very
21:59
easy to deal with. She has no problem with Russia. And he was
22:04
curious about Russia, despite all propaganda, they losing
22:07
their Christian values. They're losing their families, they're
22:11
losing literally their countries. It's not anymore the
22:15
same country, we knew America who used to be a model for
22:18
entire world and lead and be an example you know, like they say
22:22
shiny sparkling down on a heel. And this is of course PT. It was
22:29
a stroke. country who was really a, you know, industrial mind,
22:36
you know, this one. And look for 3040 years. The
22:41
industrialization, drug problem, crime waves. You can understand,
22:47
and I feel more empathy to American after this experience
22:51
than I would feel any hate.
22:53
Yeah, that's I've always said this. We should be Russians and
22:57
Americans have much more in common than the only thing that
23:01
that sucks is our elites are all deuces. But the people are so
23:05
similar. I'm
23:07
100%, in agreement with this thesis, and I've it was Nixon
23:13
that really created the well, actually, Stalin didn't help
23:19
things in the cup stealing our bombs and stuff. And
23:23
there's always stuff that goes on. But yeah, minor compared to
23:27
know, hey, we don't hate Russians. Russians don't hate
23:31
us.
23:32
Now, people have people that pretty similar.
23:34
Yeah. Yeah. You had more on this. You said? I have
23:38
stuff about Waylon. Okay. So they had this guy that they were
23:43
going to do the trade with I and I have one killer clip that I
23:46
expected to get some recognition for. Because when I played when
23:50
I finally discovered this when I went all my, this isn't good. So
23:55
this Wayland character. You got David Whelan, and then the guy
24:01
that was who's the guy that was destined Paul, Paul Whelan,
24:04
Paul, Paul, Paul and David and I don't know if you know, it's
24:07
only mentioned once in a while, but they're, they're identical
24:09
twins.
24:11
No.
24:13
Yeah, interest. Interesting. I did not know this.
24:17
Now, Paul Whelan, who is, it seems to me when I saw David
24:21
when I said, Oh, this guy. He's got the gray hair. He's got the
24:25
pressed shirt. Which is my new way of putting it JC puts it
24:30
this way. Now
24:31
press churt gray hair spook spirit, and he's
24:35
a sounds and does an interview with him here and it's on PBS.
24:39
Yeah, he doesn't sound like a normal guy who's twin brother
24:44
was in jail. He's very magnanimous. He's geopolitical
24:49
in the way he speaks. He sounds like a spook himself, and they
24:53
could be both. But Paul is an interesting character because he
24:58
can't be a spook de se and This is a good one. This is the cover
25:01
story. He was kicked out drummed out of the Marines.
25:05
Yes, bad conduct discharge.
25:08
Yeah, he was discharged for bad conduct. And he had for kiting
25:12
checks and using phony social security numbers and some other
25:16
bogus it seems very sketchy. What he did to get drummed out
25:20
of the race to go right into business as a security
25:23
specialist,
25:24
IT security specialists to be special. Yeah,
25:27
it doesn't make sense. So but, but the Litany is, oh, well, he
25:32
can't be in the CIA. Because if you get drummed out of the
25:36
Marines, you can't get into the CIA.
25:40
Come on. Oh, crap. They let everybody in. Hey, you got to
25:44
link you're good.
25:48
So, so the other thing is a Paul. He has, I don't and I
25:53
don't even see I see. I don't understand this one at all. He
25:56
has four legitimate passports. Now, what does anybody have for
26:02
passports? He's got a passport. He was born in Canada. So he's
26:05
got a Canadian passport. He's dual citizen of the United
26:07
States get the United States passport. And for some reason.
26:10
He's got a UK passport, and an Irish passport spoke. You. Come
26:19
on. So the Russians are keeping him And supposedly, he was
26:24
caught with papers. Because he went to Russia. He was going in
26:27
and out of Russia, I guess, working for BorgWarner as a
26:30
security specialist, and he's going in and out of Russia a lot
26:34
for reasons unknown and knowing you know why he's going back and
26:37
forth, and back and forth so much. And then he was lured in
26:40
for this last time for a wedding to go to a merge fellow Marines
26:45
wedding who was getting married in Russia. What
26:50
kills me about about this whole situation? He's doing
26:54
interviews, what what kind of jail? Is he in where he's on the
26:57
phone with with Fox and other doing interviews? I don't
27:01
understand. What is he?
27:02
Well, the only the only interviews I've seen is with
27:05
David. And I have a bunch of these and I want to go over
27:10
them. And this is David Whelan. This is his twin brother. Now
27:14
you have to see how this listen to this carefully. And you tell
27:19
me that this is the way any normal person would react if
27:22
they felt that they had their brother, especially identical
27:27
twin brother rotting in a Russian jail for no apparent
27:33
reason. So let's hear David Whelan. Part One.
27:37
David Whelan is Paul's Brother, what's your response to Brittany
27:41
grinders release?
27:42
It's great news. Anytime an American comes home from
27:45
wrongful detention. It's it's a great day. And yet
27:47
I can imagine it's so difficult to see Brittany released and
27:52
Paul not released
27:54
it is and we are grateful to the White House for the trust that
27:57
they showed us yesterday. They let us know in advance that this
28:00
was coming. So that my sister my brother, and our parents can
28:05
process this in private essentially and and try to come
28:08
to terms with the bitter side of the bittersweet moment.
28:13
So he's using the code the buzzword wrongful detention.
28:18
Yeah. Which it wasn't about Brittany. Never mentioned his
28:24
brother's wrongfully detained. There's also another guy that
28:26
was in this mix. I can't I don't have his name in front of me but
28:29
he was busted for cannabis also. And he looks like a spook more
28:34
or less. And, and there was some discussion about why isn't he
28:40
wrongfully denied. He worked for the State Department in one of
28:43
the embassies doing translations or, or noise teaching English or
28:46
something like that. And he was
28:49
another great cover English as a Second Language teacher. Uh huh.
28:53
So he was supposedly busted for cannabis, but they they can't
28:58
say that he was wrongfully detained so there's some
29:01
idiosyncratic reason that the State Department uses the term
29:05
wrongfully detained only with Britney I think is because she's
29:09
a civilian. And she was the only regrets these people are, you
29:14
know, they're not you know, they're not severely just,
29:19
just on that. Just a side note, I received a kind of odd message
29:23
from someone and said the true reason that Greiner was arrested
29:27
at the airport is because on the plane, she led a 15 year old hid
29:31
her weed vape that's a story we haven't heard. I can't find it
29:36
corroborated, but it's possible.
29:39
It is possible so let's go to David with these are short
29:42
pretty short clips except for his last one, but the this clip
29:45
too.
29:46
But today some Republicans criticize the swap. Senate
29:49
Foreign Relations Committee ranking Republican James Risch
29:52
said, Paul Whelan should have been part of this deal, and
29:55
expected next House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Texas
29:58
Republican Mike McCaul said trade in Victor boot will only
30:02
embolden Vladimir Putin to continue his evil practice of
30:06
taking innocent Americans hostage. But David Whelan says
30:09
the Biden administration made the right call.
30:12
It seems that they had come to an impasse. And whoever it is in
30:14
Russia was not going to make a good faith deal that would
30:18
include Paul. If the Biden administration had continued to
30:22
wait, then they would have been prolonging Britney grinders
30:24
detention for no good reason. So, I mean, again, it's not
30:28
great for Paul, and it's not what our family would have
30:30
chosen. But it's the right thing for an American president to do
30:33
for an American citizen who was wrongfully detained.
30:37
Okay, well, that's, that's very nice of you, even though you
30:39
should be kind of pissed about it all.
30:41
Yeah, I find this to be peculiar listening to this guy. Part
30:45
Three.
30:46
And if it means exchanging a 50 year old arms dealer who has
30:50
been in US custody for more than a decade, I think that the harm
30:54
is not as substantial as people are worried about.
30:56
Do you fear that the price that the administration paid for
30:59
Brittney Griner raises the price for what they would have to do
31:03
to release your brother?
31:05
No, I think for each of these cases, whether it's in Russia or
31:08
Iran, or Syria or China, each of these cases has its own
31:12
requirements. And so I'm not sure that the requirements for
31:15
Paul's case have changed at all. And I don't think that the
31:18
Russian government would necessarily expect more they
31:20
obviously have certain things that they are hoping to get as a
31:22
concession from the US government, and they haven't
31:24
gotten it yet.
31:25
Trump in the US vows to bring Whelan home. Sadly, for
31:30
totally illegitimate reasons. Russia is treating Paul's case
31:33
differently than Brittany's. And while we have not yet succeeded
31:36
in securing Paul's release, we are not giving up. We will never
31:40
give up.
31:41
We'll in told us today the Russians were asking for a spy
31:44
in US custody to trade for Paul Whelan who was convicted of
31:48
espionage Who
31:49
here's a thought. What if Brittney Griner was passing on
31:54
information? What if she I mean, she's perfect for today's CIA?
31:59
You got to have anxiety. You got to be bipoc. You got to be
32:04
gender fluid?
32:08
I think that's a good point. I think that would be fair. He
32:11
made that point. His last little comment that was made in that in
32:15
that clip illegally detained. No no no wrongfully
32:19
wrongfully wrongfully. Right. Not wrongfully that's the that's
32:22
the code.
32:24
Know that they want another there's another spy in in play.
32:27
And we don't know who it is. And these guys never bring it up on
32:30
this show. And when they bring Blinken on later, he never he's
32:34
kind of skirts and says Alibaba, we can't talk about it. Listen
32:38
to the very end, there's a spy that the Russians want
32:42
to listen to that again.
32:44
In the reasons Russia is treating Paul's case.
32:47
I'll go back a little bit here in the US.
32:48
No, no.
32:51
No, no, no further back.
32:53
Whelan home. Sadly, for totally illegitimate reasons Russia is
32:57
treating Paul's case differently than Britain is. And while we
33:01
have not yet succeeded in securing Paul's release, we are
33:04
not giving up.
33:05
We will never give up. We'll in told us today the Russians were
33:09
asking for a spy in US custody to trade for Paul Whelan, who
33:13
was convicted of espionage. He said
33:16
illegally, by the way not wrongfully. So he thought, well,
33:19
he's
33:19
an idiot. No, they're probably pulling their hair out of their
33:24
heads rawnsley's
33:25
term it okay. But I heard a spy Yes.
33:29
They never mentioned who it is. They don't even go into it. They
33:32
try to get it out of Blink and who comes on later. And blink
33:35
and mud. Can't talk about that. And it does very poorly. Poorly
33:40
reported, but then they bring a new guy on. And this is the
33:44
number five,
33:45
right what happened to four? Oh, yeah, this is clip four says we
33:50
got four new guys. Yeah.
33:51
For more on the man traded for Brittney Griner. We turned to
33:54
Rob's a harissa cheviots. He was the lead agent in the Drug
33:57
Enforcement Administration, who initiated the investigation of
34:00
Victor boot and saw it through to his conviction. Robin Harris,
34:04
Kevin's Welcome to the news hour. Do you think that
34:06
trainings
34:08
like I got it through this? This is a guy who was responsible for
34:13
the lead investigator to get this guy arrested and thrown in
34:16
jail. And he's been, he's been booed. And he's been all over
34:21
the news everywhere talking about bitching about this whole
34:24
thing. And he's more like the normal guy that would be worked
34:28
about the situation as opposed to David the brother, who just
34:32
seems like a government guy. Yeah, no kidding. It was just
34:37
ridiculous to listen to him. And now you listen to a guy who was
34:40
pissed. It was it was irked about this whole thing because
34:43
it was a lot of work that he said is down the drain. But here
34:45
we go. I'm going to start it over just to get it all back.
34:48
For more on the man traded for Brittney Griner. We turned to
34:51
Rob's a harissa cheviots He was the lead agent in the Drug
34:54
Enforcement Administration who initiated the investigation of
34:57
Victor boot and saw it through to his conviction. Rob's a
35:01
heritage habits. Welcome to the NewsHour. Do you think that
35:04
trading Victor boot for Brittney Griner was in the interest of
35:07
the United States? Well, I
35:08
don't think it's in the interest of the United States. But but
35:11
I'll start by saying what I've said many times before, I have
35:14
nothing but well wishes for the family. And I'm very happy for
35:18
them that they're reunited with their loved one. That said, I
35:21
think that there's some very negative national security
35:24
implications from such an ill fated trade. And, and the first
35:28
of those implications, I think, is American citizens throughout
35:33
the world just got made a commodity and have a bull's eye
35:36
put on. I truly believe that we just sent the message that it is
35:41
good business, to have an American citizen in your pocket
35:47
through a false detention or kidnapping, because they may be
35:50
needed for a trade someday and it's a nice equity to have.
35:53
Wow, again with the false.
35:59
This Yeah, pounding that was pounding it hard bed is their
36:03
burning heart. Good dose. Good. I got two more clips from him.
36:07
Here we go to five.
36:08
And the second reason is, I think that if greatly tarnishes
36:12
our rule of law, which was one of our strongest assets that we
36:15
have worldwide, and I think that by engaging in this type of
36:20
negotiation, I think that we reduced a judicial jury verdict
36:26
into a political stunt much in the same way that Moscow has
36:31
treated Miss Greiner
36:32
on that first point that you made that it increases the
36:35
chances of hostage diplomacy. The administration says it has
36:39
taken steps to deter other governments from taking
36:44
Americans wrongfully including new authorities, new
36:47
possibilities of sanctions and calling out other governments
36:52
from taking Americans hostage. Do you think that's enough?
36:56
I don't. I think that those are all nice points to make, I think
37:00
for years of sanctions in Venezuela, and now Russia
37:05
through the Ukrainian conflict, we can see the effects that
37:08
sanctions have and and how they can be controverted and now
37:11
lived. And I think it just defies all common sense and
37:15
logic. It's right out of the playbook of organisms and others
37:21
that this is good business
37:23
right now. It's has now what's Hezbollah's playbook? Everyone
37:25
has a playbook.
37:26
Iran's playbook is Hezbollah's playbook. And did he call it did
37:30
he say rule of law? I say who is this guy who this guy who is
37:36
this guy?
37:37
He's He's a Yeah, well here he goes with he's gonna finish off
37:43
with and I have my my kicker clip.
37:44
How do you think this trade will impact us his ability to work
37:49
with governments overseas to pursue criminals?
37:53
I think it really hurt our stance in the world. And I think
37:56
it's gonna be very hard to take the United States at face value
37:58
moving forward after some of these trades. We make incredible
38:03
partnerships with law enforcement throughout the world
38:05
and cases and investigations like the one Mr. Mr. Involving
38:09
Mr. Boot are incredibly delicate, and taking a
38:13
tremendous amount of resources. Not only in physical resources,
38:18
but in relationships in trust. Some of these relationships take
38:23
years to build, and we make great promises to our foreign
38:28
counterparts.
38:29
Tell us more about Victor Bucha he described himself as the
38:32
largest arms transporter in the world how sell
38:36
I think what made Victor very unique is that he had assembled
38:39
a private fleet of retired Soviet military aircraft and he
38:44
was he had reached that none other that I've seen was able to
38:50
utilize to place this deadly cargo in conflict zones
38:53
throughout the world where other people simply couldn't deliver.
38:56
And I think that's what made him unique and made him even more of
39:00
a threat not only to the United States national security but to
39:03
global stability
39:06
sounds a lot like Air America to me actually.
39:08
Well, no. The war What was the name of the movie was Nicolas
39:12
Cage that's supposed to be about this guy. Not the art of war.
39:19
No, it's more something I don't know people in the in the chat.
39:24
Room should Lord of War. Lord of War word of war. Thank you
39:28
movies about this guy. So
39:30
should watch that. Write that down, Lord a word that gotta put
39:33
it on the list.
39:34
Okay, I've seen it. Is it a critically well, pretty
39:37
Christmas movie, well produced Christmas movie. So it's true,
39:42
though. There was this controversy over NBC came out
39:46
with a report saying that the State Department had they were
39:50
doing the deal with Russia and they Russia said well, you can
39:54
have one or you can have Waylon back.
40:02
Well, it wasn't initially, as reported on NBC by Andrea
40:07
Mitchell. Initially it was you can have one or the other, not
40:12
both. And that was according to a State Department official as
40:16
per the reporting and then that had to be corrected. And that
40:20
will now be memory hold.
40:22
And so the other part of that is David Whelan. The brother says
40:26
that he was asked about this on some other show, and I just
40:29
happened to hear it. Where he said Nah, it's bullcrap. There's
40:32
no way. Well, it's, it turns out, it might be bullcrap. But
40:38
it might also be have some moment of truth because listen
40:42
to this, this is at the bottom of the clipless. This is Waylon.
40:46
Per Valerie Hopkins. Valerie Hopkins is a correspondent
40:50
actually reporter for the New York Times in Moscow and she's
40:54
pretty well connected and during this live interview with her on
40:57
the BBC, she's looking left and right like someone's gonna come
41:01
in and shooter quicker, the breakers coming. But she says
41:05
something interesting, which is not what NBC says but it's worse
41:10
listen to this,
41:11
you know, their hopes were really raised over the summer
41:14
when the prospect of a two for one deal was was first floated
41:18
but But Moscow was very clear that they would that they didn't
41:22
want to have a two for one and I think that you know, President
41:25
Biden said that they've also made it clear that either either
41:28
Brittany was coming home in exchange for Mr. Booth or no one
41:33
two for one
41:37
this you hear the end of that clip?
41:39
Yes. Let's let's play it again later that
41:43
either either Britney was coming home in exchange for for Mr.
41:47
Booth or no one
41:50
it's exactly the opposite.
41:52
Exactly the opposite who it was no wailing we're no we don't
41:59
want Waylon back is going to be Britney or nobody.
42:04
Yeah. Ah, so I'm telling you, man, she was the spook. This is
42:11
what
42:11
she might have been a spa. That's the way they brought her
42:14
back way it was it was was kind of seems that way. But the other
42:18
thing is why are they letting the other guy hang out to dry?
42:22
Huh? Okay, what I know you want it I'll give you a borderline
42:25
wasn't all
42:27
it was, was if I hadn't, you know, pre spiked the ball. I
42:33
would have gotten clipped with your own fault. Exactly. But it
42:36
is my own fault. But at least I got some recognition. But yeah,
42:39
so So it turns out that the NBC report was slightly off. It
42:43
wasn't like you could have this guy or that guy. Oh,
42:46
they wanted Britney or nothing.
42:48
Britney or nothing according to Biden. Wow. So why is that?
42:55
It can't just be because LGBTQ I don't believe it.
42:59
I don't believe it either. Now, listen to
43:01
this clip. This is Paul Whelan. Calling in
43:04
Whitehouse is facing bipartisan criticism this morning after
43:08
failing to secure the release, as you say of Paul Whelan that
43:11
American businessman and former Marine has been detained in
43:14
Russia on charges of espionage. He's been there since 2018.
43:18
denies those allegations. Whelan himself said he was disappointed
43:22
in a phone interview on Thursday. Take a listen. Don't
43:24
understand
43:25
why I'm still sitting here. greatly disappointed that more
43:29
has not been done to secure my release.
43:32
Sadly, for
43:33
totally illegitimate reasons Russia is treating Paul's case
43:36
differently than Brittany's on Capitol
43:39
Hill Top House Republican Kevin McCarthy calling the deal to
43:42
release Brittney Griner for a Russian arms dealer known as the
43:46
merchant of death a quote gift to Vladimir Putin that endangers
43:49
American lives. And Democratic Senator Bob Menendez calling the
43:53
deal quote, deeply disturbing now, look, their argument is
43:56
that America should have gotten more for such a high profile and
43:59
potentially dangerous Russian prisoner. But top Biden
44:03
officials are pushing back arguing the decision was to get
44:06
Brittney Griner out or no one out at all. And officials here
44:10
insists they are still in vigorous talks with Russia to
44:13
bring Paul Whelan home.
44:14
Now how does this guy just get to call in? This is what I don't
44:18
understand any sound he sounds the way his brother David should
44:22
sound? Yeah, he's irked she's very irks. Now, I
44:26
would have said you have to thinking about why would they
44:29
let this guy and by the way the Republicans aren't really
44:32
playing this right? Because you know, they like to condemn this
44:36
DLB whether Brittany's really more important than she is or
44:39
not. But they're they're not playing it right what they
44:44
should be doing to to hound Biden is because this guy, Wale
44:49
Whelan is a ex Marine, and they should be using the term left
44:54
behind. Because left behind we never let Biden's People leaving
45:01
and behind.
45:03
It didn't work with Afghanistan, no one gives a crap. There's all
45:06
kinds of people still left behind. No one cares.
45:09
So so let's go back to this idea that Brittany maybe was
45:13
transferring things. And she, there was a week in the week. It
45:18
was a good swap. Let's assume that okay, but wailing was,
45:23
could have been or not part of the deal, but they left him to
45:26
hang at least for a little bit longer until they can do get him
45:30
out eventually. But is it possible as punishment for some
45:34
of doing something wrong in other words, he didn't use his
45:38
tradecraft properly or screwed up to get caught with the papers
45:42
that he you know, went there for because he went to this. He got
45:45
a lot of people think he was entrapped by the marine wedding
45:49
that he you know, all of a sudden goes back to Russia and
45:51
next thing you know, he's got a bunch of papers in his room,
45:53
supposedly the rushes catch him with. So it was just
45:57
carelessness. You know, it's a little punishment.
46:00
You know, what's interesting is that that interview with the
46:02
boot was conducted by Marina Maria Bettina, the spy who got
46:08
kicked out of America,
46:10
both the redhead Yeah.
46:13
It's this whole thing.
46:16
This whole phase nuts,
46:18
a lot of things we don't understand. I'm afraid.
46:20
We don't know any of what's going on really. But we can
46:24
surmise and we I think our theoretical 's are as good as
46:28
anyone's.
46:28
I'm just gonna stick to Brittney Griner being the the mule that's
46:32
what I'm gonna stick to for a bit. It's that seems kind of I
46:36
mean, or, and the alternative is that that truly was the
46:40
Christmas gift that Biden had to give to the world because, you
46:44
know, for dead can't cancel student debt, can't do anything.
46:50
Got to do something. If that's truly the reason that they chose
46:53
Brittney Griner over there, they're clearly asset then we're
46:58
even in worse shape than I thought. Then Then we're really
47:03
dry. And I can't believe Yeah, that's I find that hard to
47:06
believe I find it hard to
47:07
I find hard to believe to I mean, it's everything is
47:09
possible with this guy, who can't even use wrongfully
47:12
detained when He sets the code. Yeah. And he's seems to be a
47:17
moron. So let's, I mean, let's assume the best I guess. Okay.
47:26
Have you been following the the Twitter files?
47:32
Yeah. And I do have a couple. I think I have a clip maybe? Do I?
47:37
I'm not sure if you do if I do. I have one. I haven't I have
47:41
been following it in detail,
47:42
which is I, there's I have a lot of thoughts about this. Not so
47:47
many guys only have one clip, actually. So we've had part one,
47:51
part two. And now part three, it's split up amongst multiple.
47:56
This is, let me just lay this on you. I believe that Glenn
48:03
Greenwald may be in charge of this publishing. And the reason
48:07
I say this is he's done this before with with Snowden. He got
48:11
the information then the Guardian, The New York Times,
48:14
and was it WaPo or the Washington or The Wall Street
48:19
Journal who there were three, and they all got
48:22
it? I don't remember the third one because the third one was
48:24
probably WaPo. They didn't do jack and and stuff. It was the
48:29
Guardian that did all the heavy lifting
48:31
and stuff came through redacted because they would this is not a
48:36
secret or anything. They would literally say okay, we're gonna
48:38
publish this State Department, CIA FBI. Take a look. Is there
48:42
anything we need to redact? Or is there something that would
48:45
compromise sources and methods? And they did. And so there was
48:49
stuff that came through that was redacted. So it's very
48:51
reminiscent of this,
48:53
where we're seeing this as air air of it. Yes. I
48:55
agree. Also, it's all substack people, everything's being
48:58
published on substack. Glenn Greenwald, I believe, is a as a
49:03
very large deal
49:03
with substack. I think Toby does, too. And yes,
49:07
so this is, to me, it just feels kind of like it's an even though
49:13
Glenn Greenwald is not taking any credit or anything like
49:16
that. Feels like he's in this mix somehow. And
49:21
there's a there's an element of staged. Yes. Is you get a
49:28
feeling for the board?
49:30
Well, here's, here's what came with it.
49:33
What's the point?
49:35
Well, the Well, Mike, I can give you my conclusion right away.
49:40
Elon Musk doesn't give a crap about what's happening. He's
49:42
happy that everyone's distracted and paying attention and super
49:45
engagement. Everything's great. He needs that while he sets up
49:49
the Monday is when we start the financial authentication. We'll
49:52
get to that later. But here's to Eb who was the first one to be
49:56
posting and I find this very tedious this post boosting
50:00
tweets to expose, you know, these these internal emails and
50:07
slack messages. So he kind of apologizes to his, and I'm a sub
50:11
SEC subscriber to his to his sub stack. I like supporting him,
50:14
I'm happy to subscribe for money and give him that because
50:18
there's value for value the way I see it. So the first thing he
50:21
says is, you know, in the rush to get this done, I chose my
50:24
words poorly a lot has been said about the line about quote, I
50:27
had to agree to certain conditions to work on the story,
50:30
which of course, I would like oh, yeah, it was that. He
50:33
thought it would be obvious, but he says the language was just
50:37
loose enough to give critics room to make mischief and the
50:39
stakes being with AR they of course did that's on me. Which
50:43
means fu kind of and the lesson going forward. For the record,
50:47
the deal was access to the Twitter documents, but I had to
50:50
publish on Twitter. I also agreed to an attribution, which
50:54
was sources at Twitter. That's it. So to me, it's like it was
50:59
people have this illusion that Elon Musk is emailing these
51:03
substack writers, these files but we know already the first
51:07
round probably was vetted by the ex ex FBI or the baker. And then
51:15
when I read this everyone involved with the project
51:17
including myself as well as Barry Weiss and Michael
51:19
Shellenberger has editorial control. We've been encouraged
51:23
to look not just at historical Twitter, but the the current
51:27
iteration as well. So who is encouraging them? Who, Elon, are
51:35
they working for Elon? Are they independent? Who is encouraging
51:38
them? Okay, so that's not answered and I'm sure you think
51:41
it's also odd for him to say
51:44
the number of things are odd for him to say and then to do the
51:49
mayor culpa, which wasn't really one where he says I'm sorry, I
51:53
meant I said these worded he had this wordage and they call him
51:56
out on it. Rightfully so. Because he's got some
52:02
limitations on what he can and cannot do. Okay continue because
52:07
I never thought I thought of Greenwald being implicated or
52:12
someone
52:13
that's the only one who can come on this is Greenwald and boy go
52:16
green
52:17
do you have to remember Greenwald? Anti EB are both with
52:21
their substack columns, especially in the early days
52:24
were thick as thieves pointing to each other look what he did
52:29
and look what he did look at each point in positive ways.
52:33
Look at he was condemned for this when he shouldn't have
52:35
been, if you the early Greenwald, ke B substack.
52:40
columns were mostly about Ty EB and Greenwald. Exactly. So
52:48
they're tight. Those two
52:49
in our initial meeting must talk about how he thought quote, a
52:53
full confessional restores faith in the company and quote, and
52:56
everything I've seen since seems to seems to confirm he's sincere
53:00
about his desire for full open kimono transparency with the
53:04
public. I got it as a reader, I have to disagree. Why are things
53:07
redacted? Is that being redacted by Matt Taibbi and Barry Weiss?
53:11
Or is it being redacted by Twitter? He says they're welcome
53:15
to look at things going forward not not just at the past. And
53:19
until I run into a reason to believe otherwise, I'm taking
53:22
him at his word. I'd be crazy not to considering the access
53:24
we've been given already. And then he says,
53:27
Hey, could you take that word access and swap that word read
53:31
the sentence again with the word money?
53:36
Was it are you says we're welcome to look at things going
53:39
forward, not just at the past and until I run into a reason to
53:42
believe otherwise, I'm taking his word I'd be crazy not to and
53:45
considering the money we've already been given. Yeah, nice.
53:48
Nice. Nice. And he said one last quick note and this this is very
53:54
this is this is crazy. One last note. I was very skeptical at
53:58
first about using Twitter to break the stories. Not only am I
54:01
not exactly a skilled tweeter, as sadly people have seen in the
54:04
last weeks, but I worried about the logistical challenge of
54:08
telling complex stories in 140 character chunks, it seemed
54:12
impossible. Now he comes two weeks later, I feel differently.
54:17
In this particular instance, the story has to come out on
54:20
Twitter. There's the obvious deep irony of using the familiar
54:24
drip drip drip format and uncontrollable Virtua vert. Viva
54:31
he says virality of Twitter on roasting Twitter itself. So when
54:37
he says that familiar drip, drip drip that's not the same as
54:41
posting on Twitter that's drip drip dripping. Know what I mean?
54:47
is a difference. Posting the writing on Twitter in 140
54:52
character chunks is not the same as the irony of the familiar
54:55
drip drip drip format. No, that's intentional. But whether
55:00
it's you guys or whether it's the information that's coming,
55:03
it's intentionally drip. That's why Jack Dorsey was said, Hey,
55:06
publish it all, like WikiLeaks put it all out there right away.
55:09
No, no, no, no. That's not happening. I'm not sure exactly
55:16
what that what that means. Here's the next thing. So Barry
55:22
Weiss comes in, she starts posting and she is but
55:26
why wait, why was she brought in in the first place? I don't
55:29
know. This, everyone just accepts it. Oh, you aren't shows
55:34
her? I doubt it. I freely doubt that Elon chose her. Someone
55:38
shows her and she has a substack. Now, she also has the
55:44
Free Press available at the F p.com. And if you look at this
55:56
thing, it's pretty much rigged for Ron DeSantis. This is a
56:02
DeSantis pro DeSantis publication as far as I'm
56:05
concerned,
56:05
Oh, I did this I did not do what what is the your le
56:09
F p.com vfp.com. And if you read the about a boot, the free press
56:17
is a new media company founded by Barry Weiss and built on the
56:20
ideals that once were the bedrock of great journalism,
56:24
honesty, doggedness and fierce independence that you're no
56:27
agenda show. We publish investigative stories and
56:30
provocative complicated way
56:32
way. Keep reading but I can't get I don't get this V FPZ. V
56:38
th e. Tango hotel Echo Foxtrot Papa VFP. Originally called
56:46
common sense, we focus on stories that are ignored or
56:49
misconstrued in the service of an ideological narrative. For
56:52
us, curiosity isn't a liability. It's a necessity. Expect debate
56:57
scoops from trusted reporters provocations from those Thinking
57:01
Outside the Lines and live events that bring people with
57:03
different views together into a truly diverse community. Now,
57:07
she calls the free press for the free people if you go to the
57:10
most recent post, which is about how this thing I had it all
57:18
marked. She claims that they have had collectively these
57:22
journalists on this, the F p.com. They have an audience of
57:28
50 million. So I can only suppose that this is because
57:32
it's substack guys and gals So somehow, this the free press is
57:38
a part of this. And she has no other names listed no names of
57:42
journalists only herself, but somehow this 50 million
57:45
subscribers collectively. Alright, now, let me move on.
57:55
The
57:56
good to go to her background first. I'm sorry, she's an
58:00
American journalist, writer, editor. She's the Op Ed book
58:03
review editor at Wall Street Journal in the Op Ed staff
58:06
editor and writer on culture and politics in New York Times. And
58:10
then since March 2021, she's worked at a regular columnist
58:13
for the German daily de Velde. She does his substack newsletter
58:19
called the free press and host to host a podcast. Wayward
58:23
Porsche has a podcast, a podcast called honestly. So okay, so
58:30
this is a interesting person.
58:33
Now to continue. And by the way, I don't know how she has time to
58:36
start the F p.com. While she's doing the University of Texas,
58:41
which is a very well funded very big deal and very real
58:45
apparently, I hear elites in Austin talking about all they
58:48
have like $100 million to set up an alternative University in
58:53
Austin, so she's really busy. Or she's just got lots of good
58:58
spokespersons spokesmodel deals I don't know. So then we have
59:02
the next part, Michael Shellenberger. He starts doing
59:05
the drip, drip drip. And here's another in a nutshell, here's
59:09
what he says about Trump and January 6, and the decision to
59:13
remove Trump from the platform. Now outside of all the internal
59:17
slack and emails that's going back and forth. Keep P pins and
59:21
on the following people he says the after the events of January
59:25
6 The internal and external pressure on Twitter CEO Jack
59:29
grows from former First Lady Michelle Obama who was pitching
59:33
online tech journalist Kara Swisher who was pitching online,
59:37
the anti Defamation League who was pitching online, high tech
59:41
VC, Chris Sacca, and many others who are bitching online. And
59:47
Dorsey was on vacation in French Polynesia, so he just left it up
59:51
to everybody else. So it was those people that are now being
59:54
blamed for this taking place. You can see the obvious
59:58
political stuff And it's being taken here. And I think that's
1:00:03
all.
1:00:04
But I want you to continue this but what you're describing is an
1:00:10
OP.
1:00:12
You don't say, well, not so much an OP, as I am 100% convinced
1:00:19
Elon Musk. He just wants people to be engaged. He'll deal with
1:00:24
anything. He he is so hyper focused on the authentication.
1:00:28
Amidst all of this on Monday, the Twitter blue, Twitter, gray,
1:00:33
Twitter, silver, Twitter, gold is all coming back. You get you
1:00:37
get verified with your payment on the web. It only costs $8
1:00:41
Because if you do it through iOS, the web for is for Android
1:00:44
and and web obviously, or if you don't want to go through the
1:00:48
apple authentication process which of course means they take
1:00:52
30% It's $11 $96 a
1:00:56
year you I get free shipping
1:00:58
you get what you get as you are your payment authenticated. And
1:01:07
that's all the
1:01:08
96 bucks a year is a little high in this I get free shipping and
1:01:11
possibly a TV service and a hoodie I think we got a hoodie
1:01:16
from priority.
1:01:18
So he is tote he told he is only interested in keeping people on
1:01:23
the platform and engaged until he rolls this out which he's
1:01:27
moving very fast this is this is the number one thing he's doing
1:01:31
after after he made this big to do on Twitter spaces last night
1:01:37
about the kiddie porn so this all of a sudden popped up and I
1:01:41
think this was someone trying to stop him dead in his tracks. I
1:01:44
don't I don't know the players yet but he's rolling forward
1:01:47
he's getting he's probably Facebook honestly he's rolling
1:01:50
forward he's getting his payment authentication he doesn't give a
1:01:53
crap what but just keep engaged he's posting charts look how
1:01:56
much engagement we have it's great even more
1:01:59
and more and more could be also could be PayPal
1:02:01
could pay very good. So now all you got kiddie porn you don't
1:02:06
care and then out in the in the in the slack messages it turns
1:02:12
out that you know people are like very lacks about this
1:02:16
especially the head of the trust and safety the Gol gol guy. So
1:02:22
this becomes an issue. All of a sudden he's doing a Twitter
1:02:25
spaces with former child pornography victims who are
1:02:29
leading the conversation because he said I make it number one
1:02:32
priority was number one priority just for him to say it's number
1:02:35
one priority. We're going to change it and he immediately
1:02:37
posted a graph. Hey, look, kiddie porn is down. Stocks are
1:02:40
up kiddie porn is down.
1:02:42
You know, this whole kiddie porn thing on Twitter? I float around
1:02:47
Twitter. I've been honest as the 22. I'd never heard of kiddie
1:02:52
porn on Twitter. I've never seen kiddie porn on Twitter. I went
1:02:56
well. How do they
1:02:59
explain this? Not that I've looked for that. But there's a
1:03:01
lot of porn on Twitter.
1:03:03
And the thing is, by the way, I've seen once in a while see a
1:03:06
little porn.
1:03:06
Yeah, that's a mistake. That's the mistake. All of that is
1:03:09
completely shut down. You can't find it by search. You can
1:03:12
there's no way to find it. The only way is to get a deep link
1:03:15
from someone. So if you go on Google, who are good with with
1:03:19
the kiddie porn, and you say kiddie porn, or just porn,
1:03:22
Twitter, you'll get some links, which are in essence,
1:03:25
promotional accounts that link to some other bull crap, some
1:03:29
other thing. Okay, so he's doing his Twitter spaces last night,
1:03:33
being interviewed by victims of child abuse, sexual Child child
1:03:38
abuse, and then all of a sudden back to me. We have to talk
1:03:43
about the CIA, FBI, NSA, et cetera, from the candidates, the
1:03:47
kiddie porn victims. How
1:03:48
involved have three letter agencies been behind the scenes
1:03:52
of Twitter? And
1:03:53
when you say three letter agencies, you're already I don't
1:03:56
know who you are. But your level Tim Poole, I'm sorry. Three
1:04:00
letter agencies. Why don't you say intelligence agencies? This
1:04:03
is weird. How involved
1:04:05
have three letter agencies been behind the scenes of Twitter?
1:04:09
You know,
1:04:11
maybe she's talking about the FAA. And the
1:04:15
FAA how she's very clear in his answer will explain how
1:04:18
involved have three letter agencies been behind the scenes
1:04:23
of Twitter, you know, FBI, NSA, CIA, um, now that you've had an
1:04:27
opportunity to look under the hood a little bit? What exactly
1:04:31
are we looking at as America as American citizens and, you know,
1:04:36
citizens of the globe with our three letter agencies behind the
1:04:39
scenes at Twitter?
1:04:41
Yeah, well, first was that say like, it's probably not the case
1:04:45
that the those agencies are monolithic in that it's, you
1:04:48
know, they're big agencies. I I've had some interaction with
1:04:54
the FBI over the years, and and summer. I've had more
1:04:58
interaction with this CIA. And, you know, I? I, frankly,
1:05:05
actually my general perception of people at the CIA is that
1:05:09
they're good people. I mean, maybe not everyone's good, but
1:05:13
the people that I've met at the CIA are good. I've met fewer
1:05:17
people at at the FBI, but I'm, I'm sure there are a lot of good
1:05:20
people at the FBI and most people probably get good
1:05:23
motivations. I haven't seen any sort of like, sort of smoking
1:05:29
gun thing yet, but if we do find something that shows, you know,
1:05:36
questionable collusion, then and we will surface it and bring it
1:05:41
to light. So
1:05:45
do you believe sorry, Ilan, do you believe that there's a
1:05:47
situation with Twitter that will be revealed with the Twitter
1:05:50
files with the United States Government infringed on any
1:05:55
American citizens first amendment right.
1:05:58
But it's certainly possible. I don't I think we're just trying
1:06:03
to get to the bottom of that. And if that turns out to be the
1:06:06
case, we will certainly bring it.
1:06:07
He says nothing. He says nothing. This is what he does.
1:06:10
He says
1:06:10
nothing. He never says anything. He's, he stammers and then he
1:06:15
doesn't even do complete sentences. He does this.
1:06:18
And I cut out at least 30 seconds of pauses where he
1:06:22
stammering I cut some of that out it was too painful.
1:06:25
Yeah, he's very, is he does it on? I think he does it on
1:06:32
purpose.
1:06:35
Anyway, Twitter blue relaunches Monday everybody. Here's what
1:06:40
you'll get if your Twitter blew my I'm gonna go to the actual
1:06:44
tweet thread here we go. They have it up on the screen here
1:06:48
you go to Twitter Bluets. dollars for Android and on the
1:06:51
on the web $11. For iOS, you get you will rock it to the top of
1:06:56
replies mentions and search. Of course, because your verified
1:07:01
tweets from verified users will be prioritized helping to fight
1:07:04
scams and spam exactly what I predicted you'll see half the
1:07:08
ads just because you don't care about any of the he doesn't care
1:07:12
about 100% of the ads dummies and then post longer videos and
1:07:20
get early access to select new features with Twitter blue labs.
1:07:26
So this was this will work
1:07:28
kit a new feature Am I looking for
1:07:31
less kiddie porn? Apparently? No now the feature so and with a
1:07:35
minute you pay that's when the authentication the payment
1:07:40
authentication kicks in. You don't get a blue check
1:07:42
automatically. Accounts will be verified. So this is not this is
1:07:47
not about anything other than x.com
1:07:51
so I'm waiting for him to take my blue check away.
1:07:55
Because I have one I know why would he take it away?
1:08:00
Well, because I'm not going to pay the eight bucks
1:08:04
I think you're grandfathered in.
1:08:06
Yeah, I think so too
1:08:08
not because you know it's because of your age literally.
1:08:10
Oh my god man can't can't literally your your granddad so
1:08:16
you got grandfathered in. No matter which way you spin it
1:08:19
have a grandfather.
1:08:21
Oh man. Meanwhile
1:08:23
there's I don't you know, I looked at I don't have any
1:08:25
clips. I thought I did. I've been following it close as close
1:08:28
as I can. And I'm as baffled as you are by the Barry Weiss
1:08:32
sudden emergence
1:08:34
10 Schellenberg Shellenberger it's just these choices. These
1:08:37
are substack heroes. Ooh, I like
1:08:39
that. substack heroes. No, we're not using that.
1:08:43
Okay, I'm writing it down you go. That's a great title.
1:08:49
I don't follow Shellenberger tell me about him.
1:08:52
He's the Antichrist. He was a climate change believer. Then he
1:08:58
became a denier. I think. See, Michael, how exciting shall him?
1:09:03
Yeah, we we played some clips from him. Let me say I think we
1:09:07
played some clips. We heard shallon. Yes, let's see what was
1:09:13
this. This is from I'll just play a little bit. This is from
1:09:17
September 25. This year, we
1:09:19
need to move away from fossil fuels. And that absolutely
1:09:23
includes gas. And that's why I'm very glad that New York State is
1:09:27
doing exactly that.
1:09:30
There was a couple of pieces of information that people stated
1:09:32
here that were incorrect. Someone said that New York is
1:09:34
moving away from gas. That's false. Yep, he was he used to be
1:09:38
he used to be climate change guy and then he went against it
1:09:40
because he saw the truth. And he testified testified in Congress
1:09:44
and that's how we shot to fame shot to fame.
1:09:49
Let's see you got to do it. Twitter.
1:09:52
Has nothing but he's awesome. As far as I know. He's not a
1:09:55
reporter. Let's see.
1:09:57
And one more thing What is the real These are the rationale for
1:10:01
Greenwald who is an attention whore
1:10:05
to not to not be claiming this
1:10:08
do or to not be involved visually
1:10:11
or even verbally.
1:10:14
Not be involved in any way.
1:10:16
He knows he's like, You got this wrong curry, you got this wrong?
1:10:20
No, no that he would be. I don't know what any other way to do it
1:10:24
is it just some smart person that substack so he's an
1:10:28
American author for public relations professional whose
1:10:31
writing is focused on the intersection of politics,
1:10:33
politics, the environment, climate, climate change and
1:10:37
nuclear power, as well as more recent on how he believes
1:10:39
progressivism is linked to homelessness, drug addiction and
1:10:42
mental illness. He's the co founder of the breakthrough
1:10:44
Institute and co founder of The California Peace coalition, also
1:10:48
founder of the environmental progress. So he's not
1:10:52
necessarily a journalist. So these are interesting choices.
1:11:00
And this is the thing this is what no one talks about. It's
1:11:03
just Oh, it's Barry Weiss, Greg.
1:11:05
Oh, yeah. Who should be discussing this? This is Ty EB
1:11:09
should tell us why. Yeah. How these people who is yc got
1:11:12
anything to do with this. Who's Who's giving in this stuff? And
1:11:15
who Dame names? Yeah, this bullcrap. You know, the way he's
1:11:20
doing? It is bullcrap. name names are shut up, get off, get
1:11:24
off, get out, get off the pot.
1:11:28
It's very, it's very annoying to me. Probably more annoying that,
1:11:32
that so many people just think, Oh, it's great. It's everyone's
1:11:35
gonna go to jail. No one's going to join. No one cares. No,
1:11:41
here's, here's a typical response. This was TechCrunch.
1:11:43
Just to give you an idea. And so TechCrunch is idea or a take on
1:11:49
this as well. You know, these are just messages that are going
1:11:52
back and forth. This is about the true difficulty of
1:11:54
moderation. You see, if you run a social media site, you're
1:11:58
really running a moderation team, which is true. That's why
1:12:02
That's why muscles are able to fire 75% of the employees
1:12:06
because they were all a part of the big moderation. And so
1:12:09
here's TechCrunch to reveal too much about how it works would be
1:12:13
to expose the process to abuse by spammers and scammers. While
1:12:18
to reveal too little leads to damaging reports and rumors, as
1:12:22
they lose control over the narrative. Meanwhile, they must
1:12:25
be ready to justify and document their methods or risk since
1:12:28
you're in fines from government bodies. The result is they will
1:12:31
everyone knows a little about how exactly these companies
1:12:33
inspect, filter and arrange the content posted on their
1:12:36
platforms. It's just enough to be sure that what we're seeing
1:12:39
is only the tip of the iceberg. Yes, I'm sure much more is
1:12:42
coming. And now everyone's saying Jack Jack really lied
1:12:46
under oath. He lied under oath.
1:12:49
That's another one. Yeah, you're right. Because it's a meme. It's
1:12:51
a meme.
1:12:52
We don't we don't shadow ban. Then just correct me if I'm
1:12:59
wrong, because I think there's a discrepancy in the understanding
1:13:01
shadow banning. The way I understand it is, is the the
1:13:08
Bozo filter.
1:13:09
So yeah, when you're when your shadow version, a version of the
1:13:13
Bozo filter.
1:13:14
So what people I think are confusing it with is being on a
1:13:17
no trending list. And, and the no amplified list. That's not
1:13:23
the same as Shadow banning that's restricted. That's,
1:13:26
that's the algo. That's what Twitter is.
1:13:29
They should explain to some people with a bozo filter is
1:13:32
because I'm sure a lot don't know. But a bozo filter is used
1:13:34
in small forums. And it's almost a switch you can flip and what
1:13:39
it does, it allows one person to post and and see the post. But
1:13:46
nobody else sees this post it would post this is dead
1:13:50
everybody else. So this interruptive type person is gets
1:13:54
into a conversation like this one when it's threaded, usually
1:13:57
in threaded systems, where you have the comments, say comments
1:14:03
on a column, and you have 1000 comments and you got one guy in
1:14:07
there keeps just sniping away, left and right. You flip the
1:14:11
Bozo switch on him. Nobody sees any of those comments except
1:14:15
him. He's the Bozo because he sees himself as a bozo. That's a
1:14:20
filter. But what what what gets me is this is this is the
1:14:24
algorithm, whether it's a news story that whether they're
1:14:27
spiking, spiking it up or spiking it down, people are
1:14:30
like, Oh my god, they were shadow banning. Really, really,
1:14:34
you're really surprised. And this is so there's endless
1:14:38
podcasts, and people yapping about this. It's like when did
1:14:43
you just figure this out?
1:14:46
Yeah, I'm kind of surprised by the reaction the reaction is
1:14:49
is in our own people, our own people. This is gonna be great
1:14:52
deconstruction for the show. No, I don't I don't know what to say
1:14:55
other than Hello. This is why we went to Macedon three and a half
1:14:59
years ago. Which now was the second coming? Everyone's wall
1:15:02
Macedon who If only we knew Hello. So I'm just I'm a little
1:15:07
disappointed at some in some ways, but also delighted that we
1:15:11
get to witness this because everyone who gets your blue
1:15:14
checkmark, get ready. Get ready to launch the perfect guy for
1:15:19
the cbdc in the digital ID is beautiful. You will enjoy it.
1:15:25
Well, we'll see.
1:15:26
And with that, I'd like to thank you for your courage in the
1:15:28
morning to you the man who put the seat in all the three letter

1:18:17
Make sure you got that date stamps on there.
1:18:21
Well, my training tells reminds
1:18:22
me you know, what you're doing reminds me remember that, that
1:18:25
that journaux or whatever the hell it was called a special
1:18:29
form. It was real secret and only a few journalists were on
1:18:33
it. And they were plotting against the president.
1:18:36
There was not a list was not a an email list or thing. It was
1:18:40
an email list.
1:18:42
It could have been like,
1:18:45
wow, the amount of things we forget is really is really quite
1:18:49
the journey. The journey journalist you go journey, the
1:18:52
whole list like that. We'll see you all there. And of course,
1:18:57
you can follow us from anywhere. Anywhere that you're not blocked
1:19:00
out is across the fediverse. And we're happy to the happy to
1:19:04
happy to have y'all come on in. Thank you to the artists for
1:19:08
episode 15 110. It was an OP we titled it a Trump op was the
1:19:13
easiest, easiest title that we could really it was just so
1:19:18
obvious that we had to so we had to call it the artists who bring
1:19:23
us tremendous value. In concert, I would say with the the new
1:19:29
version of Twitter where we really just don't have to worry
1:19:32
about advertisers, you know, getting pissed about something
1:19:35
because, you know, like we have the art from Taunton, Neil that
1:19:39
says the Woodstock of Vax three years of clots and heart
1:19:43
attacks. I mean, that's something that I think previous
1:19:45
to the purchase probably would have been shadow banned. What do
1:19:48
you think?
1:19:49
Absolutely. Because if not, if not just erased,
1:19:55
because we looked at it, we were like, We can do this now.
1:19:58
Nothing's gonna happen because no one can There's about
1:20:00
advertising on Twitter and we were right
1:20:05
yeah, it's there as we speak.
1:20:06
Yep. Now there was a lot to choose from. There was way too
1:20:11
much to choose from and quality honestly, not all appropriate
1:20:14
but quality stuff people really there
1:20:16
was a good there was a good cheesecake cheesecake piece from
1:20:19
Paul. Yeah, he was he had to win this one by the way, according
1:20:24
to if you follow the the threads on Mastodon What
1:20:29
do you mean? What Why, why? Why did he have to win this one?
1:20:32
He had to win this one and every single one going out or he
1:20:36
wouldn't be couldn't take over the top spot as the number of
1:20:40
pieces chosen for the year 2022, which has now become a thing No,
1:20:44
I'm glad I don't know this. I'm glad I'm not a part of these. I
1:20:47
avoid these conversations. I don't want to know because I'll
1:20:50
be here as
1:20:50
Darren is maintaining a nice list and I believe Kenny banner
1:20:54
nests where and who is it that sent the top of the list?
1:20:57
Somebody in the chat room? Oh, no. I don't know. It's it's not
1:21:02
Kenny. Ben is not necessarily somebody else's?
1:21:04
Where's this? Where's this information? Even? Where does
1:21:06
even shine them
1:21:07
on? No agenda?
1:21:09
Oh, it's not it's not on the jet on the Art Generator? No, no.
1:21:13
The leader we have a leaderboard is what
1:21:15
you're saying. But everyone else the artists with I don't think
1:21:19
any exceptions are unaware of this list. And so now we're back
1:21:24
day we're seeing who did the most and Darren Of course, I
1:21:27
think one one of the year so we're doing a little back years
1:21:29
and probably gonna give out awards or certificates out.
1:21:36
We'll give you a little widget you can put on your website that
1:21:38
points back to us.
1:21:40
Yeah, something like that. Right. So so the I'm surprised
1:21:44
the drone hasn't come up with the name of this leader. But
1:21:48
it's only because it does the shirt there's a difference
1:21:50
between one and two art pieces. It's going to come down to the
1:21:54
wire to the end.
1:21:55
Alright, so the some of the ones we liked we liked correct
1:21:59
records. It's an up
1:22:01
by the way, maybe 10 to kneel listen to topical
1:22:03
possible there was a lot there was a lot like
1:22:08
it's an art but you thought it was was crude.
1:22:10
I thought it was a little weak. Yeah,
1:22:12
it was weak correct to record. I we like to right next to the
1:22:15
Nano. No, no was good. Then there was a cute piece of the
1:22:19
retro cheesecake, which was excellent. Very well done. It
1:22:22
looks like something from the 40s Yeah, I just thought we
1:22:25
didn't need it because we had other good stuff. No, it wasn't
1:22:27
gonna work. Lots of teeth jokes, which should teach jokes when
1:22:32
none of that was going to happen. Disgusting. You'd like
1:22:34
to cap gun to propaganda capitalist agenda. Spaceman,
1:22:37
you'd like that you'd like that. We just agendas also in the
1:22:41
running for the top.
1:22:43
We couldn't figure out what it meant. Spaceman gun. We couldn't
1:22:48
understand the relevance to the show. It's a pretty piece. Yeah.
1:22:51
But we didn't understand it. I didn't either. I liked the Q
1:22:55
world order. And you said, you know, do we really need that?
1:23:00
And I said, No, you're right. There's bullcrapping and all
1:23:02
kinds of bullshit over that. Because you know, q&a, and it's
1:23:05
now global thing. It's worldwide. And obviously, when
1:23:09
you're q&a. Yeah. You might as well be arrested.
1:23:12
Q world order was by capitalists agenda and other very
1:23:16
professional looking. It was attractive. Because it just
1:23:21
looks slick. He likes to do these riders buttons, you know,
1:23:24
kinds of things very well. And but no, we're not doing we're
1:23:29
not doing any cue stuff in the in the art. No, not only nice.
1:23:34
So yeah, it's funny again,
1:23:35
until
1:23:36
it's fun. It's never gonna be funny. Again, any possible.
1:23:40
Well, thank you all very much artists and I can already see
1:23:43
you it's going to be a tough choice coming up. It's going to
1:23:47
be a very tough choice. If you'd like to. If you'd like to see
1:23:50
all of these in context, while we're doing the show, you can
1:23:53
grab one of those modern apps at new podcast apps.com I would say
1:23:58
why don't you try? Fountain fountain is for Android and iOS.
1:24:05
And they've got all these it's synchronized Dred Scott, he
1:24:08
listened to the show, he picks all the art he puts it in a
1:24:10
certain time code. You can see it all as you're listening. Each
1:24:14
chapter has different art. It's very cool to watch especially
1:24:16
when I think it even works on Apple CarPlay if you're into
1:24:20
that, or you can just listen to the live show and keep
1:24:23
refreshing while we're doing it. And no agenda art generator.com
1:24:27
Thank you to all artists it's tremendous value that you that
1:24:30
you give us as part of our value for value proposition where we
1:24:33
accept time, talent and treasure. This definitely takes
1:24:36
care of to the to the time the talent and if we had to pay for
1:24:39
it, it would cost a lot of treasure. So we are satisfied
1:24:42
and happy. Now, let's say hello and thank you to our executive
1:24:47
and Associate Executive producers for episode 1500 11.
1:24:52
And we kick it off with Let me see who is this? The Baron of

That's right, he got in trouble. He got in trouble for even
1:25:38

1:29:09
Married to me for 10 years today. Here's another 10 but the
1:29:13
10 year anniversary place to go have some some Vitello tonnato
1:29:18
here's another 10 and sharing the same wish to know agenda for
1:29:22
another decade of sanity and I should bring up having said
1:29:25
Vitello tonnato that yes, okay, Alabama, Alabama. Wait size a I
1:29:35
got it wrong. I got it wrong, but I recall it. I do know this
1:29:40
sauce. And for all practical purposes. It's Ms. Male,
1:29:44
probably Dukes. I'm guessing because that's the mayonnaise
1:29:48
that everyone in the south uses and it's really good. I'm glad
1:29:51
you do know it. That's great. Do I do know at Duke's mayonnaise
1:29:55
and some vinegar and salt and pepper, which is about as sounds
1:30:00
been asked. It sounds nasty.
1:30:02
Yeah, you know if it's I'm telling you people out there if
1:30:05
you want to try it Amazon has it available here and there. But if
1:30:10
you've been using Hellman's or best foods or Japanese man is or
1:30:14
anything else tried Dukes,
1:30:16
what's Japanese mayonnaise? Oh, a QP.
1:30:20
And there's a whole bunch of them. They have they have a lot
1:30:23
of managers. And they're usually made with 100% yokes I found
1:30:27
I found out just recently that, that there's a big thing about
1:30:31
cinnamon you have to have Vietnamese cinnamon. Be aware of
1:30:35
this.
1:30:36
I'm very aware we have all four cinnamons that we used to have
1:30:40
at the spice shop. I'm very aware of sentiments. And that's
1:30:43
not true.
1:30:44
I'm just I see that promoted. Oh, it's it's Saigon. Cinnamon.
1:30:49
Yes. I guess it's a good it's a good scent. I have some of it.
1:30:53
But I think there are. There's three three of the four kinds of
1:30:57
basic cinemas. I think there's more. There's a bark. And
1:31:01
there's one that is not the Saigon stuff but there's one
1:31:04
that's red hot. And it's the one that makes those little nose
1:31:08
candies it's good that got that cinnamon and that's the one or
1:31:12
the cinnamon oil. I think that's the one is kind of interesting.
1:31:15
The other ones are cinnamony but they're not.
1:31:19
Didn't didn't Saigon. Cinnamon didn't you perform at Club 33
1:31:22
for a while?
1:31:25
No, we couldn't afford her.

1:35:34
are still kind of lost from the 1500 special on the 15th
1:35:39
anniversary special week. I don't know donated $77 Episode
1:35:43
1490 and I'm bringing my total donations to the show to $1,000
1:35:46
making me eligible for knighthood. However, my donation
1:35:49
amount note wasn't read on the show. I had married early this
1:35:52
month. So I've been behind on listening and just caught back
1:35:54
up please dump me sir Nathan Black Knight of the metaverse,
1:35:58
please get my wife and I and air horn millennial marriage karma
1:36:02

1:36:12
Hank from the Netherlands, who donated also around the 15th.
1:36:19
And he tried to get down and 1507 He's he sent a note in
1:36:24
Dutch which I should have translated for the back office.
1:36:26
We finally got it together. And he will be a night today his
1:36:29
night name will be Believe it or not, sir Hank? There you go.
1:36:34
Sir. Hank, then we have Shawn Stedman salutations Paul fathers
1:36:39
John, suspected donations are missing. I sent two bank
1:36:41
transfers of $60 Oh, six each. My accounting shows both should
1:36:45
have landed on 1510 due to a delay in posting massive just
1:36:48
bank transfers as a whole or not making it to the spreadsheet
1:36:51
somehow. Not sure. But it was I think we received
1:36:58
bank transfers rarely make it to the spreadsheet. Why is that?
1:37:03
Because there was a lot of reasons. Because that's, for one
1:37:08
thing, the number of bank transfers we get in a year. It's
1:37:11
very small. He's that those two that he sent in? That's it for
1:37:15
the year. That's half of them.
1:37:17
Well, I think we'll fix this q1
1:37:21
Right. Hello. Yeah, yes. You say yes, we'll fix it q1. Yes, that
1:37:29
bank transfer situation will be fixed. Okay.
1:37:32
Thank you all very much. You will be on deck for your
1:37:36
knighting and or Daming. We have a couple couple of Black Knights
1:37:39

1:37:41
like to learn how to become an executive producer or an
1:37:44
Associate Executive producer or just any kind of producer of the
1:37:48
no agenda show to keep us running to keep us rolling,
1:37:50
which you've successfully and faithfully done for 15 years go
1:37:54
to our website to learn more.org/and a thank you for all
1:37:59
the time talent and treasure you brought for episode 1511
1:38:03
I formula is this we go out we hit people in the mouth shut us
1:38:23
got a couple of couple of things I want to discuss the first I
1:38:28
look a little bit at the at the collapse of society. I talked
1:38:33
about the UK on the last episode because I talked to my buddy
1:38:37
Michelle and he says hatchet Holy crap. It's no good. Well,
1:38:39
wouldn't you know it? My favorite British newscasters.
1:38:44
The news agents opened up their show. Right after we did this
1:38:49
with an overview of all of the strikes. That means people
1:38:53
stopping work in union jobs, mainly government jobs, union
1:38:58
jobs in the United Kingdom from now through the New Year.
1:39:04
Nice. First we've got to talk a little bit more about strikes.
1:39:07
Because what we saw on Friday afternoon at the CW rally in
1:39:11
parliament is just one small example of what's to come
1:39:15
Consider for a moment the breadth of the industry is due
1:39:18
to strike in December alone. There will be more royal our
1:39:22
strikes next week. More rail strikes more after that more in
1:39:25
January nurses on the 15th and 20th of December, driving
1:39:30
instructors in the 12 days until Christmas ambulance staff
1:39:33
paramedics highway agency staff ground handlers at Heathrow,
1:39:37
Border Force Staff at airports, some Eurostar staff 100,000
1:39:42
civil servants affecting government agencies as
1:39:45
widespread as the Cabinet Office or the British Museum or Kew
1:39:48
Gardens, Ofsted you name it, and there will be more. Far more the
1:39:53
the RMC General Secretary Mick Lynch has talks about the
1:39:56
possibility of a general strike not held in Britain. Since 1926,
1:40:01
we need a generalized response whether we can get a general
1:40:05
strike or not is a matter of waiting to see what develops but
1:40:08
I definitely think there will be generalized action as we go
1:40:11
through into the new year. If these disputes are resolved and
1:40:15
the RMT will be there with people we will certainly be with
1:40:18
the nurses with everyone the health workers as a teachers
1:40:22
everyone that's time for a square deal will be there next
1:40:25
to them giving them our support whenever we can
1:40:27
attention Christmas has been canceled canceled Christmas has
1:40:31
been canceled
1:40:33
couple I have two questions are not one actually statements one
1:40:39
if you're an American or anything anybody don't go there
1:40:43
during this period.
1:40:44
Bad idea is just
1:40:47
gonna be screwed probably okay, if you can even get into country
1:40:51
you probably won't be able to get out of it. The second is
1:40:55
what are the angling for here?
1:40:58
Well, it seems to me like the guy who was talking he says I
1:41:01
don't know if we're gonna get a general strike he clearly wants
1:41:04
a general strike That's what I heard.
1:41:06
Yeah, fine. They want a general strike. Let's say they get a
1:41:09
general strike. What's the point of the strike to
1:41:11
collapse society? How many times have you when people are dead on
1:41:17
the streets of London? Then would you believe the great
1:41:20
reset is real that this was not a joke this is part of build
1:41:26
I just do not see what's going to come of it what goods gonna
1:41:30
come of it build back better say nothing good now okay.
1:41:34
All right. Let me tell you what will what will happen is so okay
1:41:38
problem reaction solution sorry to go icon your ass. This is
1:41:43
your has a destruction. Total Mayhem steamy checks with the
1:41:48
central bank digital currency through Twitter direct into your
1:41:51
app. And then it's all good because people will be crying.
1:41:55
They already are already in a severe cold snap. They can't
1:41:59
afford to heat their homes. It's just it's gonna go from bad to
1:42:04
worse. And the only thing I can imagine is dishy Rishi who is a
1:42:08
fan. He's on record talking about could be so great. We can
1:42:12
just give you the money in your in your phone or your app. I
1:42:15
have no other no other theory, Stanford,
1:42:17
Stanford.
1:42:19
We knew Stanford. He came from Stanford. Oh, he came from
1:42:22
Stanford, and another one of them. That's all I can come up
1:42:27
with. I'm happy to listen to that.
1:42:32
I think they're going to if this actually happens to the extent
1:42:36
that they're describing it, there's going to be buildings
1:42:39
burned down. Oh, yeah. And so they have to tell you,
1:42:44
no, no, you know, where the buildings will be burned
1:42:47
downtown, every downtown will burn. The remote pocalypse has
1:42:53
finally come into view. It'll cause cities in the United
1:42:57
States rub alized its rub allies Exactly. They say remote a
1:43:01
pocket remote pocalypse because everyone wants to work remotely.
1:43:04
Even Apple can't get their their people back. Elon Musk said You
1:43:08
know, you come back or you or you're no longer working for the
1:43:11
company. It's not easy. Every millennial I know has moved back
1:43:16
in with their parents not in ours. Actually, no. Luckily, 9
1:43:20
million of them yet. 9 million. Hey, there's lots of other
1:43:24
parents in this equation. 9 million of them moving back in
1:43:29
with their parents this year, they will be working remotely.
1:43:33
The downtown areas need to go where people used to go to
1:43:37
offices, I predict they will burn them down in the riots.
1:43:42
It's the only way to go. You can't afford to shut it down and
1:43:45
break your lease it has to burn. And I'm not saying they're going
1:43:48
to do it. The writers won't. But somebody will. It's a classic.
1:43:52
It's what you do. You buy a couple of buildings to know.
1:43:56
Then you put a big mortgage on him and then something happens
1:43:58
to him. That's Larry Silverstein.
1:44:04
Yeah, his are the best.
1:44:06
Here's the New York Times was on strike on Thursday. Didn't
1:44:11
notice much. I don't think it's
1:44:13
bad. What did they accomplish?
1:44:14
I'm glad to know I'm glad you asked Fox News went on the
1:44:17
street and interviewed the striking New York Times workers,
1:44:20
you guys
1:44:21
on strike about. We've been at the bargaining table for 20
1:44:24
months now the company has consistently come to the
1:44:27
bargaining table with proposals that are insulting and
1:44:29
unacceptable. The New York Times is making record profits and the
1:44:33
people who make the news need to share in that
1:44:35
it's a variety of issues. But the big things are we haven't
1:44:39
had a raise in over two years. What are
1:44:41
they not giving you? They're not giving a basic floor wages of
1:44:46
$65,000 I'll be honest, I don't know the details that
1:44:50
specifically we have been working to the entire pandemic
1:44:53
without any salary increases at a time of record inflation. Is
1:44:56
this about coming back to the office it's also without coming
1:45:00
back to the office, of course, we also want to make sure that
1:45:02
we are protecting people, you know, we're still living through
1:45:05
a pandemic remote work is
1:45:06
here that they want to work remotely. That's part of their
1:45:09
beef
1:45:10
part of the negotiation.
1:45:11
We find it ridiculous that the company is maintaining this
1:45:14
position that it has a unilateral right to call us back
1:45:17
in five days a week, I thought the New York
1:45:20
Times respected union. So what happened there?
1:45:23
You'll have to ask them? That's an excellent question. I will
1:45:26
have an answer to that as well.
1:45:27
Excellent question. We'd love to hear what the management has to
1:45:30
say about that. That's a very good question. We thought the
1:45:32
New York Times respected unions to what happens to the New York
1:45:35
Times when you guys are on strike, we'll find out
1:45:38
we have said we're not going to write stories. We have photo
1:45:41
people, we have electricians, other people in the building who
1:45:44
are not working today. They have to figure it out on their own.
1:45:47
I am refusing to write I'm refusing to respond to edits, I
1:45:51
imagine they're
1:45:52
having quite a hard time putting the productive to the
1:45:55
publication together.
1:45:56
The New York Times can't run without the people who run the
1:45:59
New York Times. And management needs to know that.
1:46:03
So it's really about remote working sounds like to me more
1:46:07
than money. It's on the table. They say it's remote work. No
1:46:11
one wants to work. Well, you're not going to. And you know what?
1:46:13
I'm going to call it now New York Times building burns. Yeah,
1:46:17
downtown, isn't it? Where's the New York Times building
1:46:19
I think it's downtown. It's over it's in the Broadway theater
1:46:22
district will burn
1:46:24
it will burn it just put it in the Red Book, this is going this
1:46:29
is what build back better is all about we have to burn it before
1:46:32
you can build back better the riots, the BLM rise. Just a
1:46:37
taste people just a taste. In the meantime, what we need to do
1:46:42
is now we need to set up the new scam so that we can make as much
1:46:45
money as possible from the green New Deal bullcrap. and the
1:46:52
European Union way ahead of the curve, but don't worry, we'll
1:46:56
catch up. And this is of course, the green hydrogen scam. Here's
1:47:03
Deutsche Avella.
1:47:04
It's now called Africa become a leader in supplying green fuel
1:47:07
to the world. Haha, let's go to Africa. That question has become
1:47:12
even more relevant as Russia continues its invasion of
1:47:16
Ukraine, creating disruption in Europe's energy supplies.
1:47:20
Germany is one of the countries scrambling for alternatives,
1:47:24
including from the African continent. This week, the
1:47:27
country's Minister of Economy and climate Robert hubback
1:47:31
visited two nations in South Africa, Namibia and South
1:47:35
Africa, both of which are looking toward green hydrogen
1:47:39
fuel production in Namibia have exported a $10 billion hydrogen
1:47:44
project from a German firm, that however, concerns that Africa
1:47:48
will not fully benefit or be in control of its own green energy
1:47:52
resources. But Hubbard was quick to allay those fears, saying the
1:47:57
last thing we should accept as some kind of green energy
1:48:00
imperialism.
1:48:01
Yeah, well, that's exactly what's going to happen. And as
1:48:05
witnessed in Africa's first green hydrogen project, now we
1:48:09
just need to remind everybody, there's multiple types of
1:48:12
hydrogen. The idea that as far as we can tell, and this is
1:48:17
pretty new, this just started up you'd never heard about it
1:48:19
before. It was all electric electric, solar, solar, the
1:48:24
wind, and now it's hydrogen.
1:48:26
Well, it was peaking it was, it was a foot in the door. For
1:48:31
years, we've heard about the hydrogen economy we paid no
1:48:33
attention to because
1:48:34
it's because what they say and what they want, is electrolysis
1:48:39
to create hydrogen created by sunlight and wind. And that's
1:48:43
just not going to happen. It takes a lot more energy. But it
1:48:48
doesn't matter. We have our first marketing test site in
1:48:51
Africa with green hydrogen,
1:48:54
what is green hydrogen? And how can this means you will benefit
1:48:58
Africa? Let's get a better understanding from one project
1:49:02
in South Africa.
1:49:03
How can we benefit from silly Africans don't you know, you're
1:49:08
not going to benefit.
1:49:09
It's here as a small site around 150 miles north of Cape Town,
1:49:15
that we get a glimpse of what South Africa's energy future
1:49:18
could look like. This is one of the country's first green
1:49:21
hydrogen projects. And it all works using the power of the sun
1:49:25
rather than fossil fuels like coal or oil.
1:49:28
Now, I just got to set this up because of course, you don't
1:49:30
have visuals, what you're going to see is a solar farm, this may
1:49:34
be 5050 cells. And this one guy, apparently the only guy who
1:49:42
works there is you know, wiping off some dust off the cells and
1:49:45
he goes inside to a 19 inch rack, which are you typically
1:49:49
have a server and this this little, little box, and in this
1:49:53
little box, green hydrogen is being made because that's how
1:49:56
little you can actually make with the solar arrays in this
1:50:00
Project.
1:50:01
This two electrolyzer sticks, they give them the energy from
1:50:06
the, from the sun, and then we supply them with pure water. And
1:50:13
the process will find the closest takes place in this to
1:50:18
electrolyzer sticks. And when this happens here, what is split
1:50:24
into hydrogen and
1:50:25
oxygen, the facility is only producing a small amount of
1:50:29
green hydrogen right now, they are already planning to expand
1:50:33
to a bigger commercial site. It's a renewable energy source
1:50:37
that is seen as vital in the world shift away from fossil
1:50:40
fuels. And African countries are perfectly placed to lead the
1:50:44
way. The production is especially suited to areas with
1:50:48
plenty of sunshine that are less densely populated, but it has to
1:50:52
be done on a large scale. And the cost to put the
1:50:55
infrastructure in place will be huge. So lots still to do with
1:51:00
many questions remaining to over whether South Africa is ready to
1:51:04
take advantage
1:51:05
or advantage. Okay, so that's just not going to happen. The
1:51:09
only thing you can imagine is yeah, if you blanket all of
1:51:13
South Africa or the entire continent of Africa with solar
1:51:15
panels, yeah, maybe, maybe one thing's for sure. The city of
1:51:22
Rotterdam in the Netherlands is a giant player in this scam.
1:51:27
Now, Rotterdam has a very important port, it used to
1:51:31
really be for coal and for gas, there was a lot of natural gas
1:51:35
in the North Sea. You know, that's just been it's been
1:51:39
ignored because for over a decade, the Dutch are saying no
1:51:42
gas, no gas, we're gonna stop with the gas don't build houses
1:51:45
with it. It's got to be electric. It's all got to be
1:51:47
electricity to gas has been abandoned. But now they're going
1:51:51
to be the port the distribution center for all things hydrogen,
1:51:55
and believe me, Dutch listeners, Dutch producers, you're gonna
1:51:59
pay for this and it's not going to work and you're gonna get
1:52:01
screwed. It's gonna take decades before anything that even
1:52:04
resembles a green hydrogen economy. Here's the mayor of
1:52:10
Rotterdam promoting the world hydrogen summit 2023, which will
1:52:15
be in May in all places Rotterdam.
1:52:17
Well, what I said this morning in the opening remarks is that
1:52:20
we are now on the edge of what I call the fourth civilization
1:52:24
transition around the the energy transition or moving to
1:52:27
something very special. As we did when we come from the Stone
1:52:32
Age is the move from the steam to the electricity. This is a
1:52:36
huge phenomenon.
1:52:38
Do you hear what he's saying? This is like coming out of the
1:52:41
stone age to electricity. Please just tell everybody again, this
1:52:46
is bullcrap. It's not going to happen. Well,
1:52:51
no. It's not going to happen because it's impractical. But
1:52:55
let's look at the most impractical thing I don't want
1:52:58
to stop you that back with my whatever it is I say do it. BMW,
1:53:06
there's a bunch of videos of this thing. On the on the
1:53:10
YouTube. BM Debbie came up with a hydrogen car that uses liquid
1:53:17
high liquid hydrogen.
1:53:19
Okay. Have you heard about this? No, it's not a driving bomb? Is
1:53:23
that the pinto of the future? Is that what that is?
1:53:26
So they've invented these tanks that are like tripled, you know,
1:53:29
they're they're insulated so you can put liquid hydrogen in the
1:53:33
tank nice and then it's also got to get ended and the engine I
1:53:37
don't know how they managed to pull this off. But they've tuned
1:53:39
the engine so it works on both hydrogen liquid hydrogen goes
1:53:43
with it has to be heated up of course to be to go into the
1:53:46
engine. But if you run out of the hydrogen then you can use
1:53:48
gasoline. So it's kind of a different kind of a hybrid.
1:53:53
Oh really. But it's not it's not like the guy who has the
1:53:56
Corvette. He also had hydrogen tanks but then there was some
1:54:00
there's some element this hydrogen has to be heated before
1:54:04
it before it starts off is
1:54:06
liquid hydrogen you definitely have to warm it up because
1:54:09
otherwise it's you know, it's not it's useless our new
1:54:13
hydrogen is explosive. But the thing about it is is that okay,
1:54:18
you got this technology to work and it probably cost a lot of
1:54:21
money to do that and I'm sure that the shareholders of the of
1:54:25
the auto work company was not not shouldn't be pleased. And it
1:54:29
shows you can do it you can do anything if you want to. But
1:54:33
what would you Where would you get this liquid hydrogen to fill
1:54:36
your tank from the hybrid already had enough trouble
1:54:38
getting regular hydrogen filled tanks? Lid low liquid hydrogen,
1:54:42
how do you ridiculous and by the way, one last thing. If the car
1:54:47
sits for like about five to seven weeks the hydrogen is
1:54:50
boils off is gone.
1:54:53
How do you make liquid hydrogen? Is that something
1:54:55
you just take hydrogen you compress it and put it and get
1:54:59
it colder and colder. It gets like everything else. It's, it's
1:55:02
like a vapor that turns into liquid at the right temperature.
1:55:05
But the right temperatures like 302, I'm not sure what it is,
1:55:09
but it's around 325 degrees below zero. So very low
1:55:14
temperature.
1:55:16
So the reason why this is happening is not because we're
1:55:21
also jacked on hydrogen, it's the battery technology has
1:55:24
failed. Elon has failed, Elon has not brought us better
1:55:27
battery technology, and the story is running thin. And they
1:55:31
needed a new story. And in essence, they're taking
1:55:35
electricity created by windmills and solar panels, turning it
1:55:38
into a hydrogen battery that you then can store for some time and
1:55:43
then can use in your vehicles for generating electricity.
1:55:46
Again, it is one of the most inefficient ways of going about
1:55:50
this, and we predict will not even work for another 10 years
1:55:53
because it's always been 10 years before this thing works.
1:55:55
Everything's 10 years except for that little 19 inch rack in
1:55:59
South Africa. Okay. I mean, hey, I had a hydroxy booster on my
1:56:02
car. Yeah, you can do stuff but it's not really going to power
1:56:07
your home.
1:56:08
Now if you didn't think they ate the BMW was nutty enough with
1:56:11
the liquid hydrogen. Yeah, they're going to Airbus claims
1:56:17
that they're going to do a
1:56:19
plane a plane doing it. Yeah. 380
1:56:23
not just any old plane. But they're going to somehow power
1:56:28
with a three a 380, which is the biggest passenger plane in the
1:56:33
world. It's monstrous Double Decker, looks like it's like a
1:56:37
bell ocean going cruiser. And they're somehow going to power
1:56:41
one with hydrogen. Now I read when I was reading the report, I
1:56:45
was thinking maybe this is pretty bogus, because they were
1:56:47
claiming that they're going to do with fuel cells, which means
1:56:51
it has to be electrical engines. So whether you have 50 engines
1:56:54
on this thing
1:56:59
it's got this is actually goes against all science. The power
1:57:04
to weight ratio is what you need to look at. This goes against
1:57:08
all science unless you want to save the world from horrible
1:57:12
dirty Russian oil and gas. I'm gonna go back to the mayor of
1:57:17
Rotterdam just so we can tell we already discussed with him that
1:57:20
this is not going to play it again. This is like this is like
1:57:23
going from the Stone Age
1:57:25
will what I said this morning in the opening remarks is that we
1:57:28
are now on the edge of what I call the fourth civilization
1:57:31
transition. I don't think the energy transition is the
1:57:34
movement is the force energy transition
1:57:36
something very special. As we did when we come from the Stone
1:57:41
Age to the move from the steam to the electricity system is a
1:57:45
huge phenomenon. Whenever he
1:57:47
went from steam to electricity he skipped What did you skip,
1:57:50
you skip skip
1:57:51
the internal combustion engine.
1:57:55
We went from steam to electricity overnight. We
1:57:59
come from the Stone Age does the move from the steam to the
1:58:02
electricity. This is a huge phenomenon. And that therefore
1:58:06
that the industry is acknowledged the scientific
1:58:08
sector, but also local, regional and national governments have to
1:58:11
work together to accelerate this process to become as soon as
1:58:15
possible independent from what I call the complicated energy
1:58:21
sources in the world like the Middle East and Russia. I think
1:58:24
that we're now in a crucial phase in the Netherlands since
1:58:27
governments with Minister yet is really moving fast forward to
1:58:33
make an ant or what I call a kind of hesitating climate who
1:58:37
is to win what first, the industries the sciences, the
1:58:41
cities, the region the national government has now I think the
1:58:45
moment to focus on collaborating and bringing all these forces
1:58:49
together. And what I asked the Minister is for when it comes to
1:58:54
the Port of Rotterdam into the city this is the major place to
1:58:57
do the work not only for the consumption as we have large
1:59:01
industry but also for the distribution as well as the
1:59:03
infrastructure trust on Rotterdam trust on the Port
1:59:06
Trust on the companies and let's help you to accelerate this
1:59:11
process within the coming 678 years. I think it's really
1:59:14
important this summer because it's here will bring the the
1:59:18
demand and the production together. There will be a
1:59:22
complete new players in the world. Hydrogen, Morocco, Chile,
1:59:28
Australia.
1:59:29
Morocco, Chile Australia. Interesting. No South Africa no
1:59:34
South Africa to shorter clips from this Sahara.
1:59:39
Yeah. Well it has to benefit the host country because otherwise
1:59:44
they don't want the everyone want everyone has to be a part
1:59:46
of the scam. And that's what it is. It's a scam. It's bull crap.
1:59:50
Here's these are two short ones. This is the regional Minister
1:59:54
she's the the minister of the province of South Holland which
1:59:59
is where Rotterdam is So of course, he's also here to
2:00:02
promote
2:00:02
hydrogen is D issue at this moment, of course with the
2:00:05
energy independency that we need in Europe with a turmoil that's
2:00:09
going on in the world.
2:00:11
So energy independence is what we need in Europe with the
2:00:14
trouble that's going on in the world yet we're going to get it
2:00:17
from Morocco, Australia. This isn't even making sense at face
2:00:21
value.
2:00:22
This is the momentum. This is the momentum now of course we
2:00:26
have hundreds that's
2:00:27
what she got, she wanted momentum, they will get the
2:00:29
money and we can go give it to our friends and our donors the
2:00:32
momentum. Of course, we have been discussing hydrogen for
2:00:35
years. How can the industry get green power green energy, but
2:00:41
also how can we contribute to inland shipping greening of
2:00:45
inland shipping, what we do as a province of South Holland with
2:00:48
the ramp project, but also public transport? So there are
2:00:51
many issues that we need to address. And this is the place
2:00:55
and the platform to do it.
2:00:57
Okay, great. You are full of shit, I think. But anyway, let's
2:01:00
go to the Minister for Climate and Energy. Now. This is a young
2:01:04
dude. This dude is up to no good he's the what's his name, Rob
2:01:08
Yetunde piton. And he's a he's a he's a little go getter. This
2:01:13
one is,
2:01:14
I strongly believe that 2022 can be the breakthrough year for the
2:01:18
hydrogen market. In the Netherlands, we will invest
2:01:20
rapidly in the infrastructure and the electrolysis capacity,
2:01:24
working together with the Port of Rotterdam to create import
2:01:27
and export change with countries all around the world producing a
2:01:30
green hydrogen. And we want to step up the game together with
2:01:33
the European Commission to create the perfect conditions
2:01:36
for an internationally hydrogen market fall. It's wonderful to
2:01:40
see that over 6000 people are visiting this world's hydrogen
2:01:44
summit and I really hope that people get inspired to get new
2:01:47
connections to step up our game to create this hydrogen market
2:01:50
as soon as possible.
2:01:52
step up our game. That means spend your money Dutch people
2:01:58
step up our game. I've seen this this kind of stuff happens so
2:02:02
many times in my life. It's just so irksome and disgusting. They
2:02:06
are full of crap. They lie. Just lying to you. Oh, this is gonna
2:02:11
be the 2022 this is the year this is it. We're
2:02:15
where you and I differ and I'm older. Okay. I don't believe
2:02:19
they're lying. I think they're dead sincere. They've been sold
2:02:23
a bill of goods. They're basically stupid. Yeah, they
2:02:27
have no scientific background, none of them. I mean, this is
2:02:30
the classic anybody but all these environmentalists have
2:02:33
never taken a science they don't know physics, that's for sure.
2:02:35
Very few have a degree and and they just dare hook line and
2:02:40
sinker. It's just unbelievable. They're they're just led down
2:02:43
the primrose path and down they go. And they exe. They don't
2:02:48
even get in on the scam. I mean, somebody does, but it's not
2:02:51
these idiots that well, the guy you're talking about is gonna
2:02:54
end up making no money on the deal. While the
2:02:56
Dutch were really big on the windmills Of course, it's kind
2:03:00
of a Dutch thing. And what we found out 15 years ago, was
2:03:07
yeah, it was known was probably about 1015 years ago, that every
2:03:10
single giant windmill in the Netherlands is its own LLC, and
2:03:16
has a captain of industry and politicians as the owners of the
2:03:21
LLC and they were all getting this subsidy money. So they know
2:03:26
how to scam in the Netherlands. They do they know they
2:03:29
know I'm sure they do but it's not everyone. Oh
2:03:31
no. And of course I'm not going to disagree because there's so
2:03:34
much that politicians get hoodwinked into and they believe
2:03:37
it and of course they this is coming from Queen Ursula
2:03:40
herself. She has to believe it. She has to she has to believe
2:03:45
it.
2:03:47
Anyway, yeah, I'm sure she does. Well, it'd be fun to watch.
2:03:52
By the way, I watched just the transition to nothing. Okay,
2:03:55
transitioning out. I watched the first episode of the Megan
2:03:59
Markel Harry Netflix show.
2:04:03
I want to hear the review because I was I was hoping to do
2:04:06
that myself and I never got around to it.
2:04:09
And the reason why is I hear so many people who hate her. Like,
2:04:15
like Megyn Kelly. It's every five minutes she's bitching
2:04:19
about Megan Markel. Megan Markel, as it must there must be
2:04:22
something about the show that is just really pissing people off.
2:04:26
So I watch them. Watch the first episode. And I get it 100% And I
2:04:32
can tell you exactly what's going to happen. Okay, she's
2:04:34
gonna get killed. Megan Markel. She's got a mark. She's gonna be
2:04:38
she's going to be killed. She the whole thing is, I'm like
2:04:41
Diana, I didn't realize it was so hard. I had to do all this
2:04:46
stuff such a show. They didn't like me. They hated me. The
2:04:49
royal family. And she always talks about her husband as Ah,
2:04:54
well, you know, ah, because you can't say Harry because it's
2:04:56
like, it's very hard to say, Harry. That's to be cold, cold.
2:05:00
Do you have h h h and m H and M Yes. So you want to be like
2:05:05
Diana look this thing she's saying the firm the enterprise
2:05:10
whatever you want to call it the the royal machinery operation
2:05:15
they will kill her.
2:05:17
Oh they're they're dangerous they will kill anybody well
2:05:21
known fact yes
2:05:22
so and that will be Harry's out then he can go back and come
2:05:26
back into the into the the institution she's something
2:05:31
horrible is going to happen and she deserves it because she is
2:05:35
making
2:05:35
his serves me now you know where I'm at. Now you're gonna have to
2:05:39
get I was gonna refuse to watch this thing but now
2:05:45
just wait. You go I can't wait. Okay, that's maybe what I'm
2:05:51
saying is my basic rule of media is if you abuse the media for
2:05:56
your own benefit for your own ego for your own benefit you to
2:06:00
be beneficial to your own position comes down or conflict
2:06:03
back as a boomerang but these people if you look at all the
2:06:07
Diana documentaries at the end, she was calling the press,
2:06:11
getting making sure that the shot was just right. Hey, I've
2:06:14
been through this before myself. I've been severely burned by
2:06:16
media after I abused it from and I learned real quick early on.
2:06:20
You don't do it. It's very dangerous. She's gone to such a
2:06:23
degree. It's D two man is Diana plus. She's two she better stop.
2:06:29
I like D two she has to repair the
2:06:31
show Title D two. She's not going to stop. There's no way
2:06:35
she's a psycho. Yeah, she's a user she's got she's got
2:06:40
it and her friends are psychos her friends are psycho.
2:06:43
No, they psychos all hanging out together. I was talking to you.
2:06:46
I was following somebody up. We were talking about I think we
2:06:50
talked about this kind of offline. And I talked with Mimi
2:06:54
about this some of these Instagramers and the number of
2:06:58
cycles that are on it, which is how
2:07:00
they met by the way. Ah and met. Yes. Yes. He was introduced to
2:07:07
hers via Instagram. Find some some third party. He's always
2:07:12
started DMing on Instagram. Yep.
2:07:19
Yeah, I got I got kind of sidetracked as I was reading a
2:07:22
bunch of different, just normal research that I ran into a piece
2:07:25
by about Brad Pitt and his ex girlfriend who's this Victoria's
2:07:31
Secret model who's one of these Instagrammer nut jobs. And he
2:07:36
couldn't he said he wasn't ease into she wasn't as intellectual
2:07:39
equal for she's 30. And he's 60. But okay. And so he ran off with
2:07:44
someone younger, and who he felt better about but it wasn't
2:07:49
really so much the intellectualism, it was this
2:07:51
Instagram thing. He said she was too much into social media. He
2:07:55
made this comment. Mm hmm. So I said, Well, I gotta check this
2:07:59
out. So I checked all it was was 1 million should be nice nice
2:08:03
shape, by the way, nice figure, but endless pictures of herself
2:08:09
in every imaginable pose and every imaginable makeup job.
2:08:14
A Scott Adams should get in on that action.
2:08:17
Scott Adams got burned once and that was about it. But this is
2:08:22
like, but you start looking into this and you see these people
2:08:25
and it's like, there used to be some sort of braking mechanism
2:08:30
to keep this from happening. And they build themselves up they
2:08:33
she has a podcast No.
2:08:36
Podcast. Goodness.
2:08:39
And but who doesn't want his podcasts? So they got a podcast
2:08:46
and it's like, but it's, I get the sense that this woman is one
2:08:50
of these self absorbed Mee Mee Mee psycho checks. Yes, yes,
2:08:56
yes. That will I have not had to watch this. This you've somehow
2:09:02
through a negative review. Managed to get probably half to
2:09:07
five want to watch it
2:09:08
five stars for this document. This this five stars five stars
2:09:12
all the way? Oh, yeah. I can't wait to watch two and three. I
2:09:16
don't know how many how many episodes there are. But it's a
2:09:18
gift that keeps on giving. And I will I have to put hand in my
2:09:22
own bosom. And say I look at Harry and how he responds when
2:09:27
he's doing the interviews with her total cock. I myself was a
2:09:30
bit like that with my ex wife. So I'm recognizing.
2:09:37
Yeah, yeah. Well, it's like me how I can recognize a choke
2:09:40
artist.
2:09:41
Right. Right.
2:09:43
But yeah, but okay, well, then you die. You know why Megan
2:09:47
Kelly hates her.
2:09:49
Yeah, but Megan doesn't have to. I mean, I just think Megan's way
2:09:52
above this. Why would she even bother
2:09:55
me Megan just looks like she should be above it. But
2:09:59
for some reason For some reason I can't have
2:10:01
a neighborhood gal really?
2:10:03
I really like her. I hope she asked me back on the show again.
2:10:06
I'm now you're you've pissed her off.
2:10:09
But you probably pissed off her Booker. Her Booker. Now
2:10:13
her Booker is the one that keeps telling me yeah, we'll have you
2:10:15
back one day and then I don't hear from her for weeks. Well,
2:10:17
then
2:10:17
you know, you're there.
2:10:19
I'm toast. I'm toast. You're right. I'm toast and toast.
2:10:25
We used to pull that stunt on silicon spin.
2:10:27
Have you heard about catastrophic contagion?
2:10:31
God, no,
2:10:32
I know, I know. And I'm pissed because we should have been all
2:10:36
over this previously. Catastrophic contagion took
2:10:41
place in October of this year, brought to you by the same
2:10:48
people who brought us event 201. They did another tabletop
2:10:53
exercise for yet another pandemic for 2025 is when this
2:11:01
is scheduled. Okay, and I have a clip. Here's a compilation of
2:11:06
catastrophic contagion the tabletop exercise for 2025.
2:11:21
This, by the way, is their own marketing material.
2:11:23
Officials in two Latin American countries alerted the who have
2:11:28
several outbreaks of a new infectious disease that's
2:11:31
mysteriously appearing across the region, severe epidemic
2:11:35
enterovirus Respiratory Syndrome. 2025.
2:11:39
Okay, severe what kind of what kind of virus Did you call it?
2:11:43
It was a retrovirus was
2:11:47
Legion severe epidemic enterovirus
2:11:50
entro. Viral via enterovirus, enterovirus. Okay,
2:11:53
severe, I
2:11:54
mean looked at up I know what I know how to what it
2:11:56
is epidemic intro virus entero is
2:11:59
en Te Aro I've seen this. I've seen this eve
2:12:03
seive severe. Okay, well, you look it up, we'll
2:12:06
continue Respiratory Syndrome 2025. Over the past six weeks
2:12:10
alone, there have been 500 confirmed or suspected cases
2:12:15
reported. The virus could cause a severe pandemic. If early
2:12:20
containment and mitigation efforts are not successful.
2:12:23
We need two weeks to flatten the curve. What you got Okay.
2:12:26
Coronavirus is a genus of positive sense of positive sense
2:12:32
single stranded RNA viruses associated with several human
2:12:35
mammalian disease. Now I'm gonna read this the short version,
2:12:38
most people who get infected with now Polio is an enterovirus
2:12:44
do nice. So we so we already have the hook. enteroviruses.
2:12:51
Is it though hook is it, Paul? Yeah, it
2:12:54
goes people who get in failures, most people who get infected
2:12:58
with non polio enteroviruses do not get sick. Or they only have
2:13:04
mild illness, like the common cold again COVID Common Cold
2:13:09
Donilon, which is a rhino virus, which we haven't had that can
2:13:13
weaponize that symptoms of mild illness can include fever, runny
2:13:19
nose, sneezing, cough, skin rash, mouth blisters, and body
2:13:24
and muscle aches. So we have to assume that somebody probably
2:13:29
went to Fauci his operations, in connection with some of these
2:13:33
labs, many of the Christian ones in the Ukraine had been blown up
2:13:36
blown up by the Russians. We don't even talk about that. Some
2:13:40
eau de by the way, some of these lower classification includes
2:13:43
Coxsackie. Anyone who has kids yet, Christina Hatton, it's very
2:13:47
scary. It's a scary disease, and a couple of other things, but
2:13:52
they're working on a weaponized version of this obviously
2:13:55
somewhere boss maybe in South America. Well,
2:13:57
before I continue with the clip, and just there's a whole website
2:14:00
with with good little nuggets here. It appears that a lot a
2:14:05
great number of health care workers will be needed in
2:14:08
eastern Venezuela in 2025. The acronym by the way will be Sears
2:14:16
s. E. R. S, severe epidemic and enterovirus Respiratory
2:14:21
Syndrome. Sears S E Rs.
2:14:26
Anyway, it's a little too close to SARS. I would nixed that. I
2:14:31
was in the meeting
2:14:32
that I don't you know, you're not in the meeting. Let's see.
2:14:36
We have of course, sponsored by John Hopkins Bloomberg School of
2:14:41
the same old Billa Melinda Gates Foundation. And it looks like it
2:14:48
really kicks off in 2025 around October so just the end of
2:14:55
September around October is when it really really hits in,
2:14:58
according to this is there They're tabletop. And there's a
2:15:00
whole bunch of interesting things here if you want to, if
2:15:05
you want to learn about the exercise and, and just be
2:15:07
prepared for 2025 By the way, doesn't mean it happens in 2025
2:15:11
could be next year
2:15:13
2026 Because it's gonna be on my dish started you're gonna have
2:15:17
to do in the wintertime down there.
2:15:19
Let's get back to, to the to the compilation here cause
2:15:23
a severe pandemic, if early containment and mitigation
2:15:27
efforts are not successful,
2:15:29
flatten the pandemic, in this type of situation and trend
2:15:33
would be a risk for the global health security.
2:15:38
pandemics are inherently political, financial, and so
2:15:42
much broader.
2:15:42
We have looked spoken on leadership in the country. And I
2:15:48
think that we need to be also very careful, we cannot decide a
2:15:52
lot of things without Digitas be involved in agree. There is no
2:15:58
substitute for national election. It's important to
2:16:01
support the local response and the national response.
2:16:04
Training those today is this area's first enabling them with
2:16:08
the tools protecting them, and if need be regional solidarity.
2:16:14
First
2:16:15
of this stage communication is key. And communication should
2:16:19
include not just scientists with data, but also social, religious
2:16:24
and political leaders trust.
2:16:26
This is an essential issue. And trust was broken among
2:16:31
countries, between populations and healthcare systems between
2:16:35
healthcare systems and governments.
2:16:37
There is something to say that in 2025, we need to strengthen
2:16:43
the
2:16:43
system who needs to be a voice for the voiceless no one is
2:16:48
until all of us.
2:16:50
As of today, there have been an estimated 1 billion cases
2:16:53
worldwide, with more than 20 million deaths, including nearly
2:16:57
15 million children. countless billions are alive but left with
2:17:01
paralysis or brain damage. The most successful countries are
2:17:05
those which invested in preparedness and trained moment
2:17:09
years in advance. This included having full time pandemic
2:17:13
preparedness and response teams, which conducted detailed
2:17:16
operational planning and routinely tested those plans
2:17:19
through exercises and drills in foreign countries have
2:17:23
participated and heeded the guidance. The toll might have
2:17:27
been much less.
2:17:31
There you go. I was just looking up some enterovirus news
2:17:37
stories. CDC warns about Rhino Rhino virus and enterovirus D
2:17:43
68. I don't know what that is, but I don't see any vaccines
2:17:49
yet. Here's the Pfizer product list. I wonder if they have an N
2:17:55
N. N. Ro virus is
2:17:58
a polio vaccine. So you should be able to have?
2:18:03
Yeah, you'd think that? Well, I'm sure I'm sure they're
2:18:06
gearing it up. Figure it out. second clip is a little shorter
2:18:11
here just about the value of doing these kinds of exercises,
2:18:13
which is mainly to scare the crap out of us. I guess.
2:18:16
What makes an exercise really valuable is if it's especially
2:18:20
well planned and thought through then if the results of that
2:18:24
exercise or thought about and then changes that are suggested
2:18:28
by what we learn, are actually implemented.
2:18:31
Most of us don't respond well. If we face something that's rare
2:18:35
and catastrophic. It's almost like inoculating. Exercises are
2:18:40
a form of inoculation for emergencies using Oh
2:18:44
man, this is so good. It's like mRNA for your brain
2:18:48
to bring together people that need to respond to the crisis,
2:18:51
but they've never met each other before. They don't usually. And
2:18:56
people from different departments getting
2:18:57
to know so what
2:19:00
why did she laugh right there in the middle of that? Cuz she's
2:19:03
full of
2:19:03
crap says, but they've never met each other before.
2:19:07
Because they didn't. I think what she's saying is because
2:19:09
they did meet each other before they've all met to plan the
2:19:12
exercise. It's a lie. It's a lie life
2:19:15
that needs to respond to the crisis, but they've never met
2:19:18
each other before. They don't usually work with each other.
2:19:21
And people from different departments getting to know each
2:19:24
other, and learning to cooperate.
2:19:29
She says they never met each other. And then she follows that
2:19:33
up with they don't usually work together. Wait a minute, it's
2:19:38
one or the other. If they've never met each other, and
2:19:40
they've never worked together. So they just thought that they
2:19:43
don't usually work together. They never work together. This
2:19:46
is a lie. You're right, you're caught. She's lying by law
2:19:52
that need to respond to the crisis, but they've never met
2:19:55
each other before. They don't usually work with each other,
2:19:58
and people from different departments Getting to know each
2:20:00
other. And learning to cooperate really helped.
2:20:04
So different sorts of exercises that I've participated in have
2:20:08
included all government agencies here in Australia working
2:20:12
together to work through the consequences of pandemic, I've
2:20:17
participated in several of those,
2:20:19
the value comes in the not only the learning, but the
2:20:25
interaction that you have with with
2:20:28
others. This exercise was particularly valuable, because
2:20:32
it catalyzed I brought together the essence of what can we do to
2:20:41
prepare for a situation that is, per definition, unpredictable,
2:20:46
that
2:20:46
interactive experience and working with people who can
2:20:50
contribute and who can, who can add new perspectives is
2:20:55
something that I think is of great value.
2:20:59
You know, who that is speaking who was one of the participants
2:21:02
know, Tom Dashiell. Oh, that idiot lobbyist extraordinaire.
2:21:08
Yeah, Mm hm. Or Congress person.
2:21:11
And he was Secretary of Health and Human Services for Obama. So
2:21:18
great. He's got the Dashiell group. Well, believe me, he's
2:21:22
not just there just to hang out. Money Tom Daschle was there?
2:21:28
Because Tom Daschle was a guy who knows how to make money?
2:21:33
Well, you brought this whole thing. I do have two COVID
2:21:35
clips.
2:21:36
Well, let me lead you into it. And this will, this kind of
2:21:42
follows on from what they're talking about here. Because, you
2:21:45
know, we were so smart and so good with COVID. That is
2:21:49
certainly in Australia, that, you know, we have to give
2:21:54
everybody their money back. 10s of
2:21:55
1000s of fines issued for COVID restriction breaches at the
2:21:59
height of the pandemic, have today been ruled invalid by the
2:22:03
Supreme Court or the turning them on a technicality. So 3000
2:22:07
penalties totaling more than $30 million now been cancelled. With
2:22:12
anyone who has paid entitled to a refund
2:22:15
refunds from the beach penalized at the Park 10s of 1000s of
2:22:20
fines handed out over months of harsh lockdowns now canceled
2:22:25
today in the Supreme Court, David Kell, the barrister for
2:22:28
the police commissioner declared to fines issued for breaches to
2:22:33
the public health order would no longer be enforced, stating they
2:22:37
do not sufficiently state or describe the offenses in general
2:22:41
terms. That ruling on just two finds now means 33,121 will be
2:22:50
withdrawn.
2:22:51
33 does the magic magic number near you go.
2:23:06
Okay, clip number one. This maybe I don't know. Maybe this
2:23:10
isn't about COVID. But play this one sudden death.
2:23:14
Oh, yes.
2:23:15
Good evening. It's good to be with you. Good to be with you
2:23:17
again tonight with the sudden death of prominent American
2:23:20
sports journalist grant wall.
2:23:22
Wow. Is this from NTD? No, I loved because, you know, the
2:23:27
documentary died suddenly and now they're using sudden death
2:23:31
to try to screw up the search algo
2:23:33
wall was in Qatar covering the World Cup when he suffered
2:23:36
what's described as acute distress and collapsed in the
2:23:40
press box according to his agent. The incident happened
2:23:44
inside the lusail stadium during the waning minutes of the World
2:23:47
Cup quarterfinal match between Argentina and the Netherlands.
2:23:51
fellow journalist cure Radovich was sitting nearby.
2:23:54
The medics were there very quickly. And they you know,
2:23:58
worked with him for, I don't know 2030 minutes before he was
2:24:03
taken on the stretcher,
2:24:05
while was transported to a nearby hospital in Doha where he
2:24:08
was declared dead while the circumstances of his death
2:24:11
remain unclear, while said on his podcast just two days ago
2:24:15
that he had not been feeling well.
2:24:16
So I've had a case of bronchitis this week. I've been to the
2:24:19
medical clinic at the media center twice now including
2:24:23
today,
2:24:24
wall was instrumental in helping grow the sport of soccer in the
2:24:27
US through his coverage of the game. Grant wall was 48 years
2:24:31
old.
2:24:33
I don't know maybe it was I don't know that it happened?
2:24:36
Well, there's a number of things. First of all, he was
2:24:39
quote unquote, detained for showing his support for LGBTQ
2:24:43
for the LGBTQ. Yeah.
2:24:45
And that was actually in this report. I would have left it in
2:24:47
the clip but I thought it was I didn't take it was part
2:24:50
Well, the reason why I bring it up is because now if you look at
2:24:54
this guy, even look at his brother, if you look at his
2:24:56
family, there's a reasonable expectation that he was fully
2:25:00
vaccinated and boosted are and instead of saying that this is
2:25:04
possibly a vaccine adverse event or a
2:25:10
vaccinate vaccinate vaccinate
2:25:13
instead of instead of saying that no no no we have to write
2:25:16
everywhere well it was probably killed because you're homosexual
2:25:19
as legal like attack they probably killed him.
2:25:22
Yeah, well I haven't seen any of that
2:25:24
on the show notes you can go ahead and take a look at it and
2:25:27
what I would add to that these they're stupid the obvious
2:25:31
reason that he had severe distress is because of the
2:25:35
referee whistle we know this is what spurs Sponza spurs on a
2:25:40
heart attacks and he was just all around the referee whistle
2:25:44
but yo is interesting to me on this clip, which was completely
2:25:48
overlooked and was nobody made a fuss over the report of his
2:25:51
death was filed by his agent. Now I know a lot of writers and
2:26:00
even sports writers which one of them who amongst them has an
2:26:04
agent unless you're doing work for Hollywood or they're doing
2:26:09
it nobody I mean even when you're doing books you have an
2:26:12
agent for that book but you don't have such agent as your
2:26:15
spokesperson who I like found that very peculiar
2:26:19
that is interesting have we looked at his book of knowledge
2:26:22
entry have we have we checked to see if there's some I mean, just
2:26:28
take a look for a second what is what was he doing that would
2:26:32
possibly warrant a an agent's let's see sports journalists
2:26:37
soccer analyst, author of the book The Beckham experiment,
2:26:42
that was 2009 so he may have been working on a new book
2:26:45
possibly he's an Eagle Scout, Eagle Scout Prince. Oh, oh, that
2:26:49
changes that changes stuff a little bit, doesn
