Thursday December 15 2022. In this year award winning keep on
0:08
Asian media assassination episode 15 112. This
0:11
is no agenda
0:14
following the confusion and broadcasting live from the heart
0:18
of the Texas hill country here in fingerings. Number six in the
0:20
morning, everybody. I'm Adam curry,
0:22
and from Northern Silicon Valley where everyone has the Christmas
0:26
spirit. I'm John C. Dvorak.
0:30
Buzzkill. Yes, the Christmas spirit is in the air. That's
0:35
true. Yeah. And climate change, solve solves solve. It's all
0:41
done. It's all over and we're good to go. We don't have to
0:43
worry about a zero carbon future. We'll get there. It's
0:47
all been fixed done.
0:50
Is that what Bill McKibben says?
0:54
Bill McKibben. I don't know who Bill McKibben ZZ is. Oh, yeah,
0:57
you do? Do I know who that is? No, this is this is the big
1:02
news. I don't see this should be number one. Everywhere.
1:06
Everywhere. This is the only story that matters.
1:08
A major announcement is expected today from the US Energy Energy
1:12
Secretary about what some called the holy grail of clean
1:15
energies, the Holy Grail, it could change how we power our
1:19
world. Explain.
1:23
I mean, did you this, this news was just off the hook. I was so
1:25
excited. We've achieved fusion ignition. Fusion. This is
1:31
unbelievable. This is the biggest Bogut of thing I've ever
1:35
heard of and I'm not even a fusion scientist, a nuclear
1:39
scientist. Just what there's this.
1:43
This is what do you find what? I know the strident? Okay.
1:47
Clipping all right. But I know pretty much no story. What do
1:50
you think? I think that is that is the is the Achilles heel to
1:55
the story. Well, okay.
1:56
I know nothing. I know nothing.
1:58
I don't know not Dang.
2:00
I just listened to Secretary Graham. And all
2:03
I heard was he knows less than you.
2:08
Let's go through. Of course, that's why she has the job. What
2:11
I heard right off the bat was the headline reads fusion. We've
2:15
achieved fusion. But then you read the sub headline. It says
2:17
fusion ignition. And I'm pretty sure that some kind of bullcrap
2:21
thing but let's just listen to our secretary who was all GD and
2:25
jacked. Today. This is in case you don't remember she has the
2:29
short pixie here, a hair and the former Governor, former
2:33
governor,
2:33
he has no experience which is not a scientist, not the least.
2:37
But she does have huge ears. Just a massive likes tea cup
2:42
saucer ears.
2:43
Today, we're here to talk about fusion, combining two particles
2:49
into washy,
2:49
flapping and fly into the distance using your ears like
2:53
Dumbo. Last week,
2:55
at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in
2:58
California, scientists at the National Ignition Facility
3:03
achieved fusion ignition.
3:06
That's where I went, Oh, okay. That doesn't sound like fusion,
3:10
it sounds like fusion ignition.
3:12
And that is creating more energy from fusion reactions than the
3:17
energy used to start the process. It's the first time it
3:22
has ever been done in a laboratory anywhere in the
3:26
world. Simply put, this is one of the most impressive
3:32
scientific feats of the 21st century. Or is the President
3:37
might say.
3:40
Oh, no, we're gonna ruin your applause line.
3:53
I do think he probably did say this is a BFD Oh. Livermore, and
4:01
around the world have been working on this moment for more
4:04
than 60 years.
4:06
Okay, so I would like before I play these other short clips of
4:09
her, just tell us exactly what happened here.
4:14
Well, there's this thing called a fusion ignition, which implies
4:17
that you took less energy to create the output of energy that
4:24
was created by the fusion. And so what they do is they take it,
4:29
you know, they take whatever kilowatts to jam into this
4:34
little pellet that they had, and then the amount of kilowatts
4:38
coming out is greater than the amount that went in supposin
4:44
rights. Okay. And that's kind of what they're talking about
4:48
happening. Part of the calculation that I've heard
4:51
nothing about, is that what, how much energy did it take to make
4:56
propellers
4:58
that's what I'm getting from everybody. So it took like
5:01
50,000 lasers to blast one pellet. And somehow that was
5:06
deemed a good thing. But we'll just we'll just let the
5:10
Department of Energy Secretary explain it.
5:13
So So what is this accomplishment to know?
5:16
So we just heard what it did. What does it really do? We
5:19
industry knows better. First two things.
5:21
It strengthens our national security. Oh, yes,
5:25
I feel so much more secure, because it opens a new
5:28
realm for maintaining a safe, secure and effective nuclear
5:33
deterrent deterrent in an age where we do not have nuclear
5:37
testing.
5:38
It was what did she just say there? Somehow, it's a nuclear
5:43
deterrent.
5:43
I don't know what she was. She was what she just said, which I
5:46
didn't hear here. This part, by the way. But what she said
5:49
there? She's talking about bombs. Yeah, I just want I don't
5:53
understand why she talking about bombs.
5:56
No, because it opens a new realm for maintaining a safe, secure
6:01
and effective nuclear deterrent deterrent in an age where we do
6:05
not have nuclear Oh,
6:08
I don't understand, by the way, a fusion bomb, or the type of
6:12
bombing that they make wishes of fishing, fishing and fishing. Is
6:17
a What's it got to do with this? It's got nothing to do with it.
6:21
Why is this better? We're done making a better bomb.
6:26
Yeah, we're number one. We've got a better bomb everybody.
6:30
He's off the rails. Yeah, not good.
6:32
No mission allows us to replicate for the first time.
6:37
Certain conditions that are found only in the stars. And the
6:42
sun.
6:43
Recreating stars
6:45
is know that
6:46
she she just said it must be true. Must be. And the second
6:50
thing
6:51
it does. Of course,
6:52
this is three things. Okay.
6:54
Wait, wait. The second thing it does? Of course, of course, my
6:57
favorite little bit.
6:59
What do you think? I think it what do you think it is? Of
7:01
course.
7:03
It makes it so we can have clean? Green Energy? Yes, of
7:08
course. The
7:08
second thing it does, of course, is that this milestone moves us
7:13
one significant step closer to the possibility of zero carbon
7:21
abundant fusion energy powering our society. Oh, tearing up over
7:27
this. If we can advance fusion energy, we can use it to produce
7:32
clean electricity, transportation fuels, power,
7:36
heavy industry so much more. It would be like adding a power
7:42
drill to our toolbox. Building this clean energy economy.
7:46
Oh my god, if only I could add a power drill to my toolbox.
7:51
That would kind of an analogy is that? I know.
7:55
It's like everyone has a power drill lady. Like give me a
7:58
hoverboard. Okay, show me something that pays off on the
8:02
big promise. No, that's not what this is all about. Don't worry,
8:05
we know what this is coming down to.
8:07
So today we tell the world. We don't want
8:11
to know what you ask for that
8:12
America has achieved a tremendous scientific
8:15
breakthrough number. Why when that happened? Because we
8:19
invested
8:20
Oh, sounds like she's winding up for some money pitch
8:24
in our national labs. We invest in fundamental research. Thank
8:29
you. And tomorrow, we'll continue to work toward a future
8:34
that is powered in part by Susan ng Banerjee,
8:38
thank you for the for the extra sound effect, John.
8:40
Fortunately, the private sector investment in fusion research is
8:45
already booming. Good. It has nearly $3 billion in last year
8:50
alone. Wow, this is right.
8:52
Last week's money to Ukraine. Yeah,
8:56
I mean, but this is private. We don't have to worry about it.
8:58
It's all private. It's good. And
8:59
we've heard from professors that interest among students which
9:03
one has never been higher
9:05
up students are very interested in fusion, which is terrific
9:09
riff and
9:09
that's why the Biden Harris administration is aiming to
9:13
capitalize on this moment
9:14
ah capitalize money. Yes, pitch me baby.
9:17
Today's announcement is a huge step forward to the President's
9:23
goal of achieving achieving commercial fusion within a
9:27
decade. Oh, there's still a lot more to do.
9:31
Oh, listen to the laugh tail after she talks about 10 years
9:35
to the
9:36
President's goal of achieving achieving commercial fusion
9:40
within a decade. But there's still a lot more to do
9:45
with my money, what was the laugh for because she just said
9:49
oh, we'll achieve this all that is the same year the
9:52
last one is not you know, these laugh tells us he show up before
9:57
the two Bly not Although I guess they could show up anywhere, but
10:02
what why? Why is, what is it even doing anywhere in this
10:06
talk? Well, let's,
10:08
let's, let's listen to this, listen to it again. But what's
10:12
what's happening here is the same as green hydrogen. It's
10:15
like, this is great. It's fantastic. We're the best $3
10:18
billion already in there. And you know, in 10 years, it'll pay
10:21
off. That's the same hydrogen timeframe, lady, it's both
10:25
Today's
10:26
announcement is a huge step forward to the President's goal
10:31
of achieving achieving commercial fusion within a
10:34
decade. But there's still a lot more to do so much more, we'll
10:39
continue to work toward that goal and find other ways to
10:43
progress
10:44
to me just means it's never gonna happen. 10 years, but
10:48
there's so much more, there's never gonna happen. I think
10:50
that's what the leftover was not gonna happen in 10 years.
10:53
Whatever the case is, this 10 year nonsense is boring. If you
10:56
achieve if beside besides the, well, let's look at fusion
11:00
energy if it's achieved in a in a positive way. It's a big, big
11:07
deal. Yeah. And he would, and you would wrap it so fast, you
11:10
would know it hit you. So if this experiment was anything
11:15
real, it could be ran, it could be scaled. What Why can't you
11:18
scale it makes a little pill bigger, or do whatever we have
11:21
to do or just make a million as a little pills, and it would do
11:23
it that way. So whatever it would take, you would do it as
11:27
fat, it wouldn't take 10 years to do it, because it's like,
11:30
It's boarded. These boys, boys,
11:33
boys, boys find other ways to progress to reach fusion energy.
11:38
So for example, in September, the Department of Energy made a
11:42
$50 million investment for public private partnerships are
11:47
working toward Monday fusion modern designs. And we're
11:53
partnering with the Office of Science and Technology Policy,
11:56
to map out the President's bold vision for driving that fusion
12:02
to be bold with the highest safety standards with cost
12:07
effective, equitable deployment, oh, physicians, to be equitable
12:14
to lead and communities.
12:15
Why does it have to be equitable, because black people
12:19
are good and they're pledging a laser on what's equitable, we
12:22
got to make
12:23
sure we can't don't can't just give that to the white people.
12:26
We have to give it to the black people
12:27
decade with the highest safety standards with cost effective,
12:33
equitable deployment that positions American businesses to
12:38
lead and communities to thrive community and with a skilled
12:42
work what was boring that it's almost done and inclusive. This
12:46
is what it looks like for America to lead. And we're just
12:49
getting started.
12:50
They had this way. This is what it looks like for America to
12:53
lead just a bowl craps a bunch of reporters there with their
12:56
tongues hanging out writing down notes that are useless with
12:59
those be a good story about this is so bad. I never even heard
13:02
this part of it. With their big ears
13:05
flapping in the wind lady. But this does come at an opportune
13:09
time because we have a massive, massive problem with our
13:14
renewables. No, Jess. So just recall in our lifetime, in my
13:20
lifetime, we had a global warming that had to be changed
13:25
to climate change.
13:26
No but no to start with global cooling. Come on.
13:29
Now. I just want to stay with the elites part. Okay, we'll
13:34
start with global cooling. First, there was global cooling,
13:36
and then there was global warming. Okay, so now we're
13:38
global warming. That didn't work so well. It turned into climate
13:42
change. And then weather is not climate. And now of course, this
13:46
is climate related weather. And so we had to roll out solar and
13:52
wind power. And just at the moment, we're relying on it the
13:55
most with ugly evil Putin, cutting off all of our EU and UK
14:00
gas supplies. What happens
14:02
we are in the middle of a wind drought for several days now a
14:06
stiff breeze has skirted the UK looping around from Norway,
14:09
across the Atlantic, but Western Europe is there in the middle of
14:13
it all and it's almost totally calm. It'll stay like that for a
14:17
while yet a noun matters because our wind farms almost all in
14:20
Scotland and the North Sea. It's not until Wednesday or even
14:24
Thursday that the winds pick up and the turbines start turning
14:28
or lack of wind is having a big impact on how we're generating
14:31
our electricity. This has been our energy mix over the last
14:34
year wind produced around 28% gas 42% and coal just 1.6%. But
14:42
look at the mix from lunchtime on Monday, gas power stations
14:45
have been ramped up producing 61% of our electricity. Wind is
14:50
down to a little over 3% About the same as being generated by
14:54
coal. A snapshot is unusual, but it does show the limitations of
14:58
renewable energy in some weather conditions. Now wait, it's gonna
15:01
get really bad, and winds are likely to get weaker with global
15:06
warming. These are the projections on future wind
15:09
speeds. Even if nations collectively reached Net Zero
15:12
soon after 2050. They dropped significantly across the
15:15
northern hemisphere shown by these shades of blue, a
15:18
phenomenon called Global stealing. And it's caused by
15:22
rapidly rising temperatures up in the Arctic.
15:25
So globes, I can't believe that scientists didn't know this.
15:29
Global warming creates global stealing. Why did we even start
15:33
with the windmills if we knew that it will be globally still?
15:38
Had this clip? Oh, you did? Ah, sorry.
15:42
My intro is going to be a little more different. But the thing
15:46
that after listening to this thing, and watching this guy,
15:50
and he's got this little pie chart with all the energy pieces
15:53
on there, and then his idea he could have punched it up the
15:57
global stilling is like global stealing it. I don't know
16:02
whether that's even accurate, or whatever he says is based on the
16:06
fact that the Arctic is freezing over,
16:08
because it's getting warm. What
16:10
got me. What got me from the very beginning was the fact that
16:14
England which is a coal producing self sustaining coal
16:18
producing state, with giant coal mines and Wales and all over
16:22
them. The reason for the British Isles is for this coal, coal.
16:25
That's that's what started. They're using 1.6. And by the
16:31
way, it's crazy. It's crazy is much less than anywhere else in
16:36
the world, China, United States, we should get those numbers, but
16:39
they're not that low. That's ridiculously low. So it brings
16:43
me to a couple of interesting points, I think, at least to me,
16:47
the first time I went to England in 73, it was coal
16:52
powered. Now time was that for the Sex Pistols concert, yeah.
16:57
And so I had to change my shirt two or three times a day because
17:01
of the soot. Because you're just you're battling these slack,
17:08
there's
17:10
the London fog.
17:12
And this is after the London Fog days, put a stop to that that
17:15
was in 55. So they they around your neck, your color was black
17:21
is black, everything. Now, of course, this was off, they could
17:25
have that be that could still be going on here, where we use a
17:28
lot of coal, but there are filters that are called
17:31
precipitous, you know, electrostatic precipitators and
17:34
cyclones and all kinds of devices that keep that from
17:37
happening. They could have done that in England, he would have
17:39
had all his mess, but they're lazy about it. And the other
17:43
thing was, which really kind of still annoys me to no end some
17:48
years later, when I was running for PC mag UK. I went to this
17:51
big event out in the middle of nowhere and there was this was a
17:54
giant Hall and in the hall there were like 12 fireplaces all
17:57
burning coal to getting the place. toasty warm, wouldn't it?
18:01
Not only that it was a beautiful fire. Yeah,
18:04
it's it looks nice. It feels good.
18:08
It goes forever. If you get
18:12
up in the morning, who's gonna kick us back?
18:16
Yeah, pretty much they goes for about 1215 16 hours without
18:21
doing much to it. And it's like burning rocks as I always called
18:25
it. And so they banned in England because of these idiots.
18:31
They banned all coal fires so you can't have one in your
18:35
house. You can't have a decorative one you can't you
18:37
can't have one you can't have a coal fire for any reason
18:41
whatsoever. What is the point of this and it's like you're gonna
18:47
ask down to 1.6 It's a cold country Give me a break
18:51
you know the answer. This is the great reset and people are just
18:55
going along with it
18:57
yeah before this Yeah, well this began before the great reset but
18:59
it's definitely an element of it which you said the idea that you
19:02
can't burn coal is ludicrous
19:06
but welcome to the to the to the world. Everyone knows it's going
19:10
to kill us it's killing everybody. We can't have coal we
19:12
can't have gas. We need to wind and solar and and now fusion and
19:18
hydrogen.
19:19
We got no fusion. We got no hydrogen bowl crap. We're in for
19:25
a troubled time. Yes, it's yes, we are. Luckily United States we
19:30
talk a big game but we still have the coal.
19:33
Well, okay,
19:34
we talk a big game, but we still have the coal and we're still
19:37
burning it. And we're still shipping it the China two we got
19:40
lots of coal. We have 350 years at what's known are normal coal
19:47
reserves, the ones that are known, have power for the whole
19:51
country if we use just nothing but coal burner 50 years. We're
19:54
good to go.
19:54
I had a question about some energy related stuff in the
19:57
United States. Maybe this clip can helped us
20:00
we learned overnight that a large section of the Keystone
20:03
oil pipeline has been restarted. The entire pipeline had to be
20:06
shut down last week after an oil spill in Kansas. But now a
20:10
section from Western Canada to Illinois is operating again. The
20:13
cause of the spill is under investigation as the cleanup
20:16
continues.
20:17
I feel very confused by this I thought that this thing was shut
20:21
down what was shy Lou and
20:23
I heard this story. You Your thought was the same as mine.
20:27
What? What? Well, I thought Biden's shutting
20:31
down. Do you know what went on there?
20:36
It was a it was a maintenance problem apparently was they
20:39
couldn't find any evidence to sabotage. But what although Why
20:43
is it working at all is what you're asking? Yes, yes. I have
20:46
no idea. How do you ever started?
20:48
Ah, okay. That a troll in the trap in the in the trap room?
20:52
Yeah, the trap room says it's not the XLFF s which means for
20:58
fuck sake, because hey, thanks for being a troll, Dick. It's
21:02
the Keystone not the Keystone XL. There's your difference.
21:05
Okay, all right. Well, you could have just said that normally
21:08
douche.
21:10
Now these guys have
21:13
we gain from it. That's why they've got no
21:15
girlfriends. And the social life is crap. Bunch of fat guys, come
21:20
on.
21:21
Now, I do want to check in on one other story which I think
21:27
gives us another little tip of of what's a little lift the veil
21:31
of what's coming in our future when it comes to energy and it
21:34
was this shorter story that the clip custodian got that got me
21:38
interested. Tonight. Authorities in New York are trying to find
21:40
out why a massive fire tore through a police impound lot in
21:44
Brooklyn. Firefighters struggled to beat back the flames. At
21:47
least eight minor injuries were reported the facility was filled
21:50
with cars and motorbikes that had been towed including many
21:53
being kept as evidence in criminal cases.
21:57
All right, so I'm like, what was this? Like trying to get rid of
22:01
evidence? You know what, what happened here? This thing is
22:04
massive. It's much bigger than this clip.
22:07
Black smoke shrouded Brooklyn throughout the day seen far and
22:11
wide. This building used by NYPD to store evidence caught fire
22:16
around 1030 This morning, according to officials,
22:19
we have about 14 members of the service who work here and we did
22:22
have some outside contractors he about six contractors. The
22:26
contractors went into the warehouse to start performing
22:28
that task and they observed the fire Okay, so that's
22:31
first of all I'm thinking the contractors went in, started
22:34
their task which I don't know what their task was. And then
22:37
they observed a fire so the contractors may be no change.
22:40
No change the word observe to started.
22:43
Yeah, Chris. Yes, exactly. And they started fire. Okay, but how
22:47
did they start the fire? Well, contractors
22:49
went to the warehouse to start performing that task and they
22:52
observed the fire,
22:53
but there were challenges to putting it out. The FDNY says
22:56
the metal building partially collapsed at one point as they
23:00
move to an exterior attack.
23:02
What kind of fire is this from the street, it's melting, it's
23:05
melting steel.
23:07
On the water.
23:08
We also are using our drones in the air so pinpoint where we
23:12
have the fires we can move around the boats to extinguish
23:16
all of the fire that's possible.
23:19
This building was used to store dozens of E bikes and a variety
23:22
of vehicles as
23:25
a bikes, electric bikes, they are truly the most dangerous
23:31
battery operated devices. These things catch fire all the time.
23:37
It's the E bikes. I'm telling you, this was the E bikes and
23:40
they probably ignited a Tesla or two. It's possible.
23:43
This building was used to store bikes and a variety of vehicles
23:47
as evidence. They were also storing a large volume of
23:51
biological evidence, DNA items from crime scenes. What the NYPD
23:56
says rapes are not kept here.
23:58
No rape kits, though. Why
24:00
the evidence goes back a long time 2030 years.
24:04
This all of this sounds so sketch, Allah
24:07
somebody evidence was also from Sandy
24:09
Weill we still don't
24:10
from Sandy. Evidence from Sandy, Hurricane Sandy. Oh,
24:15
no, the full extent of this damage.
24:18
Officials from Sandy that did have to keep their
24:21
weather weather modification.
24:23
Most of the items in this space are likely destroyed.
24:27
This fire is probably going to go on for
24:30
a few days. This is why I think e bikes by the time
24:33
we were able to fully extinguish it and get inside possibly to
24:38
you know, get to the deep seated
24:39
areas. The NYPD was very clear that this was not a location
24:43
where they brought cars that were towed for traffic
24:45
violations. So the public doesn't have to worry about
24:48
that. But they are calling this a loss for the department. And
24:51
it's still unclear how this would impact ongoing crime
24:55
investigations.
24:56
Here we're gonna hear a lot more about these about batteries
24:59
being unhealthy for your life
25:03
pretty sure about that well
25:06
yeah he bought that about it's like bikes no good
25:08
still seems to me to be kind of sketchy and listen to this guy
25:13
yeah we got the evidence of the dole DNA gun NO
25:17
NO NO rape kits don't worry you know what that's not the first
25:20
thing I thought of but okay yeah no rape kits
25:25
rape kits don't worry it's not the first thing don't worry
25:27
we'll get the rape kits will still be sitting aside never be
25:30
looked at for the next decade they'll be safe
25:33
and we'll have fusion before they check out the rape kits.
25:38
So yeah, I saw that story. I said this phony just to water
25:43
some want there was one thing that someone had to destroy and
25:47
they did it. Oh, we're gonna do it, Louis. I don't know we're
25:50
gonna get the burn the whole place down. Okay, that's what
25:53
we'll do.
25:54
I got a note from producer Sondra in Portugal. She
26:00
originally she doesn't from Porto, Portugal. She's not there
26:02
anymore. In the early 2000s. Some of our public buses were
26:05
replaced by hydrogen powered vehicles early 2000s. This was
26:09
part of sales. This was part of the EU project called cute cu
26:12
te. These buses ran smoothly all over the city for years around
26:17
Obama's presidency. The Hydrogen buses were replaced by natural
26:20
gas powered vehicles which are still being used this year. Our
26:24
city mayor and the president of STCP, the equivalent of the MTA
26:28
in Porto gave him gave a press conference introducing brand new
26:33
clean energy buses there Hydrogen buses. So just as we
26:39
had hydrogen there was no what was the flavor of the year it
26:41
was natural gas. And now we're back to hydrogen before we know
26:44
it fusion is in your future.
26:47
We have a bunch of VA Hydrogen buses in Alameda County.
26:51
Yeah, sure.
26:53
So I when they first came, I decided to take a ride on one.
26:58
And it was it was at this beginning point so I could chat
27:02
with the bus driver because he's been driving his bus for a
27:05
while. And she says, you know, they don't have as much. And
27:09
there were there is fuel cell buses. She has they don't have
27:12
as much oomph, but they're okay, they're fine. They're smooth.
27:16
Step. They're a little top heavy. And it's kind of
27:18
distressing
27:19
because they like they go they wobble back and forth. Well, I
27:23
guess they've
27:23
would be on the pointed tipping over something that doesn't like
27:27
it. I guess the batteries are on the roof. I'm not sure what how
27:30
this thing is balanced thing is all dumb. Now the worst. Oh, and
27:34
also, by the way, she also confirmed it makes a whining
27:38
sound.
27:41
There was I just have to point this out. I want people to go
27:44
read the article for themselves. It's from NBC News. I could not
27:48
believe that NBC wrote this knowing that of course I could
27:52
headline how Dutch farmers became the center of a global
27:56
right wing culture war. Oh, brother. Oh, yeah. And so that
28:01
they talk to this one guy Eric Loughton 52. He's a farmer. This
28:05
tall, affable and soft spoken man is more likely found tending
28:08
to 150 dairy cows at his farm in the windswept green flatness of
28:12
the Eastern Netherlands. A sixth generation farmer on this land
28:16
he knows the name of each cow and that of its parents. Oh, the
28:20
vast barn echoes to pop classics including Never Gonna Give You
28:23
Up by Rick Astley. The so someone's really growling
28:27
somebody here. Yep. There has been research on what music cows
28:30
like bestie said with a knowing grin and it's not classical.
28:34
Lotan 52 was a national organizer in a campaign to stop
28:38
Dutch government plans to potentially shut 1000s of farms
28:41
in order to reduce harmful nitrogen emissions by half in
28:44
2030. A plan that critics say will change the country's huge
28:48
agricultural industry forever, not just critics. Everybody can
28:52
see it. Okay. And now, this grassroots protest movement has
28:56
been driven largely by ordinary farmers like Loughton and their
28:59
supporters. But it has another element, the far right
29:03
radicalized by the opposition to strict COVID measures and
29:07
spurred on by conspiracy theories about globalists
29:10
dismantling national democracies and importing non white
29:14
immigrants to majority white countries, these activists see
29:17
the farmers as the last victims of an assault on Western
29:20
civilization
29:21
itself.
29:23
And then the next one, I'll just read this and then you have to
29:26
read it for yourself as conspiracy driven telegram
29:29
groups, right wing commentators and some lawmakers would
29:32
baselessly put it. Dutch farms are being shut down to make
29:36
space for asylum seekers. Right Wing populists around the world
29:39
have offered their support for the farmer stand including
29:42
former President Donald Trump. Francaise, Marine LePen and
29:46
Poland's far right populist government. I mean, it just goes
29:50
on and on and on and on into just racist as the only thing
29:59
they don't do as men in us, everything else is in there.
30:02
Tucker Russell Brand. Everyone got a mansion. Everybody got a
30:06
mansion. We didn't get a single mansion. Although I did call
30:09
this bag out this. What's his name? Patrick Smith at peace
30:14
writer. Yeah at peace Smith on Twitter. He immediately blocked
30:17
me.
30:19
He blocked you blocked me on Twitter. And this
30:21
is the stuff you're the latest from Patrick. Let's see what
30:24
else you report some Harry and Meghan take direct aim at the
30:27
Royal Family. Okay, thank you. What the US sending a Patriot
30:32
missile defense system to Ukraine could mean for Putin's
30:34
war, ancient coins on Earth and desert cave. I mean, this guy is
30:38
using these
30:39
stuff. Yeah. Anyway,
30:41
so I said we're gonna shave his head and walk in March of naked
30:45
down Main Street. Turns out the guy's bald. So it was kind of a
30:47
bad, bad
30:50
like to be pushed, pushed around by all bad threats. So I was
30:56
thinking about this and it's like, so the Dutch are willing
30:59
to give up an important cultural I think probably pull a digitus
31:10
an important cultural product. That's it. She's the Dutch make
31:16
some of the world's most famous cheeses. You can't do that
31:19
without those cows.
31:21
It's it is in fact those cows that make the cheese indeed. No,
31:26
they don't give a shit. No one No one so so much. Edom and
31:31
Gouda,
31:32
Gouda Gouda, one of the world's most famous and most popular
31:36
cheeses Gouda Gouda smoked or not. Yep. Yes, good.
31:42
I like the medium age Gouda. And I can go for an old age too. But
31:46
the young I don't like the young stuff that's a little too much
31:48
for me.
31:49
I like it when it gets a little soft, but but if you find
31:53
someone who smokes it correctly, it's what you said. If you can
31:58
find someone who could smokes it correctly. In other words is not
32:03
so smoky. It's like a brick hit in your mouth now
32:08
I don't like that at all at all. No. So there you go on the
32:14
climate change everybody. That's just great. Everything's going
32:19
great over there. It's great. It's great that we
32:21
went from fusion to cheese.
32:26
Well, no, we went from fusion to Dutch. Nitrogen to cows to
32:32
cheese and it was you took us to cheese.
32:34
I did you did. Took us to cheese.
32:38
Ha. There was some other stuff going on to
32:41
play this is a little bit in between the fruit picking robots
32:45
from picking robots. Israeli startup
32:48
tumble has developed flying robots that can pick fruit
32:50
autonomously. It could be a glimpse into the future
32:54
they are driven by sophisticated software and machine vision data
32:58
streaming came from a surrounded 3d cameras in the system in the
33:02
in the robots, and they're taking a lot of decisions. What
33:06
is the food what is the forage how to access the fruit? If it's
33:10
right or not, right, the buzzer
33:12
flying robots reverberates and Amok orchard bursting with fake
33:15
apples. The robots fly around and pick fruit straight off the
33:19
trees before depositing it in a bit. That makes life easier for
33:23
farmers. And the machines don't need breaks,
33:26
we can walk away also at night. The robots are creepy, the small
33:31
LEDs that illuminate the trees and the environment they can
33:36
walk also at night. Actually, they can walk 24/7
33:40
According to the Israeli startup, the machines could cut
33:43
food prices and be more cost effective
33:45
are flying autonomous. Robots we call it far they are small,
33:49
agile and cost effective robots the flies. They are equipped
33:52
with a gentle gripper that holds very gently to fruit with no
33:57
bruising. They have four motors and driven by control algorithms
34:01
that enable access to every foot of a tree.
34:04
The robots are already paired with farmers and orchards in
34:07
Italy and the US
34:09
there's a great increase in the interest in agricultural
34:13
technology. And then investment is growing very rapidly going
34:18
from 2025 the investment is expected to grow by around 20%
34:25
in 2026. But these
34:27
robots won't replace all farm workers just yet. Researchers
34:31
say the technology would need to be more robust and inexpensive
34:41
and ovo owned a fruit free but the fruit sometimes it's so deep
34:45
and you're on another road bike and get in there doesn't make
34:47
sense.
34:48
No, no, it doesn't make sense. Doesn't
34:52
it's cute? I like the idea of these robots. Making fruit
34:57
and this is just a heads by
34:59
the way says arise to 24/7 That robot probably goes three hours
35:02
in craps out of battery life.
35:04
Oh yeah this is all bull you're absolutely right all of this
35:07
stuff and the the electric planes that I love the the
35:12
personal drones that you know you can get in yourself you can
35:15
fly around for exactly 27 minutes. The whole it's like
35:21
just dream on because Elon failed he did not deliver on the
35:26
battery technology. It's just not there. And by the way, let's
35:30
talk about Elon for a second. Elon, Elon, what is his here's
35:35
an update on Elon
35:36
next, Elon Musk has suspended a Twitter account that's been
35:39
tracking his private jet. He previously
35:41
asked the college student behind the account to stop publishing
35:45
his jets location, but now he's threatening legal action after
35:49
claiming that someone was trying to stop his sign last
35:52
month, Musk said he would not ban the flight tracking accounts
35:55
citing his commitment to free speech, but apparently he's
35:57
changed his mind.
36:00
Okay, apparently he changed his mind again, because as of this
36:03
morning, those accounts have been reinstated.
36:05
Yeah. Oh, really? Oh, that's too bad because I was all happy that
36:08
the Elan jet had showed up on the in the fediverse. So we
36:12
could still follow it just fine.
36:14
Well, that's probably a way to say I have two Twitter clips,
36:19
Elon ish lips, I guess. And they're in a nutshell clip. So
36:24
they're kind of wrapping things up. And this is I believe, from
36:26
NTD.
36:27
Multiple legal experts are reportedly saying the FBI may
36:31
have violated first amendment rights by allegedly colluding
36:34
with big tech that comes after journalists released multiple
36:38
installments of the so called Twitter files.
36:41
Journalist Matt Taibbi last week released an installment of the
36:45
so called Twitter files, allegedly revealing that
36:48
Twitter's former head of safety yo Well, Roth, not only met
36:52
weekly with the FBI and DHS, but with the Office of the Director
36:56
of National Intelligence,
36:58
hey, this is this is NTD. This guy could be working at the gate
37:04
level.
37:05
He's definitely a pigsty. He's a he's a candidate, a very
37:08
distinctive voice very, very
37:10
so show that weeks before the 2020 presidential election, the
37:14
FBI flags certain tweets to the social media company. One of
37:18
those, for example was about possible irregularities in the
37:22
voting process. Twitter reportedly decided to add a
37:25
learn how voting is safe and secure label to the tweet after
37:29
the FBI flagged it that installment of the Twitter files
37:33
also shows Twitter's current policy director Nick pickles
37:37
allegedly working with the FBI and come on
37:40
man, no one's name is actually Nick pickles. That's got to be
37:43
an alias. There's just no way pickles Hey,
37:45
no pickles here. Now
37:47
there's no way there's no everybody's Nick pickles in the
37:51
morning. No, no,
37:52
no, no the HR and shower that guy i
37:56
with the FBI and DHS, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage
38:00
Foundation told Fox News that Twitter can suppress the tweets
38:04
and this
38:04
is Fox News. This is not NTD No wonder he's taking
38:09
it from Fox okay private
38:13
company, but only if Twitter is acting on its own. However, he
38:18
said, quote, when a private company is censoring information
38:22
based on direction coordination and cooperation with the
38:25
Government, then legally, it may be considered to be acting as an
38:29
agent for the government. And it may be found to be violating the
38:33
First Amendment. Your Distinguished Fellow at the
38:36
University of St. Thomas School of Law told the outlet we now
38:40
know that the intelligence community interacted on a
38:43
regular basis with Twitter and other platforms seemingly to
38:47
advise them to monitor what the IC considered objectionable
38:51
content.
38:52
All right. Now, before we go to your second clip here, I have
38:55
the list of retired spooks, FBI agents working at Twitter.
39:01
I know it's a great long list. Yeah.
39:04
Let me give it to you real quick. Kevin Molina, current
39:07
Twitter senior corporate security analyst 12 years FBI
39:12
intelligence analyst almost all FBI. Yeah. Well, it's all FBI
39:16
Doug hunt. He's the senior. He's a senior director to 20 year
39:20
veteran Mark Jerozolimskie, current Twitter director of
39:23
corporate security and risk FBI, Douglas Turner, current
39:26
Twitter's Senior Manager corporate and executive security
39:29
services. We got one Patrick G head of corporate secured a lot
39:33
of corporate security, corporate resilience. That's Karen Walsh.
39:37
We got Twitter senior staff, technical program manager. I
39:40
mean the whole list. I could go and it's like 15 ex FBI agents
39:46
working at Twitter in different roles. That's a crazy or it's
39:51
just a coincidence. Oh, yeah. And again, we need to remind
39:54
everybody that when Mark Zuckerberg was Man of the Year
39:57
in 2010, on top magazine right there, Robert Mueller, then FBI
40:04
Director still two years longer than he should have been. They
40:09
had us make a specialized law had to make a special exemption
40:12
to the law for him to clean up the 911 mess or whatever he was
40:17
doing. He just popped in and said, Hey, I was I was just
40:19
around the corner in the building. How you doing?
40:21
Everybody was cleaning up my desk getting ready. To it's it's
40:26
so interesting to see that people are surprised by this.
40:31
Really? We've we've known this gambling hair, right. Do you
40:37
just set up part two?
40:39
No, I think place.
40:40
He said the next Congress should make it a priority to
40:43
investigate contacts between the intelligence community and the
40:47
platforms to see if government censorship took place. Various
40:51
Republicans in Congress reportedly indicated that they
40:54
would be in support of such an investigation. Loomis told Fox
40:59
that the accumulation of accusations pointed at the FBI
41:03
is Washington DC Bureau, I think make it right for serious
41:06
investigation by Congress. National Security Council
41:10
spokesperson John Kirby reportedly said on Sunday that
41:13
the Biden administration is not telling social media companies
41:17
how they should handle their content.
41:20
Yeah, what's he What is that guy even saying anything about this
41:24
for and by the way, these hearings, everyone's all jacked
41:27
up because the Republicans are going to start these hearings.
41:29
Oh, Kevin. Never that year. Are they brought hill you know, the
41:34
Republicans were running everything they brought Hillary
41:36
Benghazi will never He brought Hillary in and she's just
41:39
sitting there chewing gum and shaking her head and rolling her
41:43
eyes and, and you know, spitting into a patoot spittoon. She's
41:47
not she doesn't care what they had to say. She's I don't think
41:51
it's important. She's just snapping back at him. They got
41:54
nothing accomplished. And that was what that that funny look in
41:59
Texas guy with a lawyer or whatever state he's from. He's
42:03
now got a show on Fox Trey Gowdy, Trey Gowdy. He was the
42:07
big shot after big talker. Yeah. And by the way, Trey Gowdy shows
42:12
stinks. Trey Gowdy had
42:15
to go to shows. This stinks, man. It stinks.
42:20
It was he had that guy. I don't like that. That major, what's
42:24
his name that comes on and says that we shouldn't be we should
42:26
quit your brain and get
42:29
exactly. You're so right. Because look at the bill that
42:33
the Senate passed banning tick tock from government devices.
42:37
Now I have been of opinion that this is not about the Chinese
42:42
government spying on anybody. Everyone's spying app spy.
42:46
That's just what happens. This is about, I think, paid stooges
42:51
who want to who are working on behalf of either Twitter, more
42:55
likely meta Facebook, and probably Google to get the
43:00
advertising whore which is tick tock, which is sucking up all
43:03
the cool money. Get them out. And who introduced this bill?
43:09
Josh Hawley, Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton. These guys
43:15
are all on the
43:16
tape. Yeah, they're all They're all. Advertising. Yeah, they're
43:19
doing their bidding of your company. You're right. It's all
43:22
about you know, just, hey, we got we got it made here what
43:27
we're doing. And what is these interlopers coming in here
43:31
aren't even American. They're spying on us? Let's get rid of
43:34
them. All right.
43:35
So what does know?
43:38
And by the way, just to mention that the American tech scene has
43:42
always been lording it over the entire world, and to have
43:48
somebody like if some search engine suddenly appeared that
43:50
was better than Google, or whatever combination we'd like
43:54
to us now. deadbeat bent out of shape because it's always
43:57
assumed that oh, we're gonna go into Europe and we're gonna be
44:00
the search engine because they're too dumb to develop
44:02
anything themselves. So when the Chinese come out with a product
44:06
tick tock, yeah. Which is you know, it's respire, not spider.
44:09
Oh, no. It's just No, they can't put up with it. No, there are
44:13
losers.
44:16
All right, so Elon Musk is doing a phenomenal job at keeping
44:21
everybody distracted while he puts his payment stack in place.
44:26
hilarious to see on Twitter some someone tweeted break egg. Colm
44:33
looks like Elon is creating Twitter XP. Dan and I love our
44:37
producers going oh my goodness. That's so hard that breaking so
44:40
hard. We heard it three weeks ago on no agenda. It's breaking
44:43
so hard, bro. It totally been slammed. I got so what does he
44:47
do? He just keeps distracting with the jet story. That's good
44:51
for half a new cycle. And of course the big motherlode more
44:56
changes
44:56
at Twitter. Elon Musk are eliminating the trust and safety
45:00
At Council, the advisory group of civil and human rights
45:03
organizations was formed to address content that includes
45:06
hate speech, child exploitation and suicide. Musk sent the
45:10
council was not the best structure for external insights.
45:14
Meanwhile, he faces backlash for attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci
45:18
suggesting that founder should be prosecuted for its actions
45:21
during the pandemic. Some health organizations are now
45:24
threatening to leave Twitter.
45:26
Oh, they're threatening to leave Twitter. Well, they
45:29
read the tweet. They just did a TED to said this random story.
45:33
They never read that, you know, why would they do that? No, he's
45:36
just come on. So he sent out a tweet it said, he says my
45:40
pronouns prosecute slash Fauci. Which is funny. Yeah, but holy
45:47
mackerel. The media get bent out of shape about this. Well, let's
45:51
go to Morning Joe, with mica and Joe and they bring on a guy who
45:58
should know better the superstar in the morning of CNBC Andrew
46:03
Ross Sorkin, Mr. Finance himself,
46:06
I can get off Twitter. I don't really care. But I'm wondering
46:10
what a guy's spending $44 billion on that he's got this
46:14
brilliant mind for for inventing things for for creating things.
46:19
I just every day, I wonder, Why is he acting like a back bench
46:25
Republican in the House of Representatives, instead of like
46:30
back the richest guy in the world guy who can actually
46:33
take us confusing British politics with American
46:37
money that he would use. You know, Sorkin is a New York
46:40
Times, hotshot that is also Council of Foreign Relations.
46:45
He's the golden boy. He's the golden boy. And so
46:47
he is a Yeah, I don't know that he's technically a spook, but
46:52
he's might as well be. And he comes in to do his his hatchet
46:56
jobs here and there, he's good.
46:57
No, he's not good. He screws this one up Republican
47:01
in the House of Representatives, instead of like, the richest guy
47:06
in the world guy who can actually take the country in
47:09
positive places. I don't get it. I don't understand it either. I
47:13
have to say, I, it's lost on me. Because I also think, I always
47:17
think that I like to think that the economics of things make
47:20
things rational. And there's some things almost irrational to
47:24
me about what's happening here. Both because you would think
47:27
that advertisers wouldn't want to be around this. And you know,
47:29
you think about what you saw last night, he was at the
47:32
Chappelle concert in San Francisco, he gets booed on the
47:35
stage and you start to think about all the people who may not
47:37
want to buy Tesla's genuinely literally, because of some of
47:41
this and so it doesn't, I wish I could make sense of it. But you
47:47
know, I'm with you. So
47:48
the guy me again. So the guy who is in finance, and talks about
47:54
it all day long, has not yet picked up on what Musk is doing.
47:58
He's applied for a license to basically to be a bank, but
48:05
certainly to be a processor. And Andrew Ross Sorkin golden child
48:10
doesn't see it he's a hothead understand why aren't you
48:12
towards it? You know now this
48:14
is not as assignment What are you kidding me?
48:16
He's a finance guy. He's finance assignment is
48:20
to go after must in this situation.
48:23
Okay, good points.
48:24
Yeah, like reasonable way.
48:28
Alrighty. So then we had the which I think is related.
48:35
Actually, I'll tell you how it's related. It's here's one country
48:38
is already getting ready to use the new Twitter X pay which will
48:42
be payment authentication. This is my theory is that Elon wants
48:47
to have the digital ID and the payment system which I think
48:52
would be a central bank digital currency maybe hopefully it'll
48:55
be different for each country I doubt is going to be Dogecoin
48:59
and maybe Australia, which maybe Australia will be first
49:03
i radical plan to crackdown on social media abuses being
49:06
considered by the federal government for more nines.
49:09
Oliver head joins us live in Adelaide Ali. How will it work?
49:13
Well, good morning essentially work the same as a passport
49:16
Australians forced to submit 100 points of identification like
49:20
their driver's license or passport when using social media
49:24
accounts like Facebook, and Twitter. Now police don't have
49:26
access to those social media accounts. And it's all part of a
49:29
crackdown on online abuse. Now users could be liable for
49:34
defamation suits or even criminal prosecution. And it's
49:37
all part of a plan hoping to deter people from engaging in
49:41
bad behavior. And now the recommendations were handed down
49:44
by a federal parliamentary inquiry their reforms that are
49:48
being considered by the Morison government, with the chairman
49:50
saying there is merit to Remove to remove the veil of being
49:55
anonymous.
49:58
I mean, the US if they were so compliant During COVID, why
50:00
wouldn't you try this there first? Oh, yeah, you know, seems
50:03
like almost a no brainer. So then we had this. We had a big a
50:11
big meeting, led by the by Maxine Waters as part of the
50:16
House Financial Committee. And as the poster child right now
50:22
for all things, digital payments and all things problematic. Sam
50:26
bank when freed, was supposed to show up and testify. And before
50:31
he could do that, Oh, he got arrested in the Bahamas and
50:34
under very iffy circumstances like, Oh, we don't know if we
50:38
can extradite him. Why are we waiting for an extradition? Why
50:40
did you arrest them? Well, it's unrealistic. It was. To me it
50:43
sounded like we can't have this more on testify.
50:47
We already thought that initially, I'm now not thinking
50:51
about them. Let
50:51
me make my case. And I'd love to hear you go back on this first
50:56
day. Here's the here's the arrest and
50:58
another big story that we are following JSTOR Dunning downfall
51:01
of Sam Venkman. Free the founder of the currency exchange FTX.
51:06
Just over a month ago, he was riding high a billionaire many
51:09
times over. Well, tonight. He's in jail in the Bahamas, facing
51:13
us charges and what a federal prosecutor calls one of the
51:16
biggest financial frauds in American history. We get more
51:20
now from CBS is Scott McFarlane
51:22
inside a heavily secured courthouse in the Bahamas this
51:25
morning. 30 year old Sam Bateman fried, arrested and disgraced
51:29
was denied bail and signaled he'd fight extradition to the US
51:33
is this
51:34
is one of the biggest financial frauds in American history,
51:37
where the Justice Department charged Venkman free with
51:40
numerous financial crimes including wire fraud, securities
51:43
fraud and money laundering. Vaping Freed's company FTX based
51:48
in the Bahamas and promoted by top celebrities was worth $32
51:51
billion in January before a run on the company got it it be big,
51:56
its founder worth just more than 100 This
51:58
guy is I think he's a new guy. He's reading it a little bit a
52:02
little bit probe, like kind of like MTV ish. You know, got it.
52:07
He's puking. This is CBS This is not a puker fests. It's weird
52:12
produce
52:12
was worth $32 billion in January before a run on the company got
52:17
it. It be big, its founder worth just don't I mean, it's
52:20
not really a news, right? The guy's got to know what his
52:23
problem is, say gutting it. Like why does this a
52:25
hole for the 100,000 his customers lost $8 billion. Every
52:30
loose row was one of them telling CBS News he's 2 million
52:33
in the hole. This talk about being scammed. And by losing my
52:37
money to a scam and a fraud. I knowingly commit fraud. I don't
52:41
think I committed fraud. Two days before his arrest bank,
52:44
Winfrey was asked if he thought he'd be arrested. I don't think
52:47
I will be the FTX founder was scheduled to testify this
52:50
morning on Capitol Hill. Instead, the company's currency
52:54
brought into right the ship described a shockingly
52:57
unsophisticated organization with no accountants, and where
53:01
expenses were approved by emoji. There was
53:04
no sophistication whatsoever, there was an absence of of any
53:08
management.
53:10
Now, I'll tell you why I think that he was not in and I have a
53:13
theory as to what's going on here. But I'll tell you what, I
53:16
think he was not meant to testify. And that is because he
53:20
had already submitted his written testimony. And Forbes
53:25
got a hold of this and published the whole thing. And you just
53:28
heard there at the end of that clip, this guy, John Ray, the
53:31
third, he is the guy that was flown in immediately overnight,
53:35
we're not even sure who made the decision. He's the guy that was
53:39
flown in to fix Enron and no doubt fix some things for some
53:45
people. I'm just guessing. This guy comes out of the blue they
53:50
fly him in, boom, he's in and right off the bat, Sam Backman.
53:54
Fried's testimony says I really would like to help but right
53:59
away the chapter 11 team came in locked me out of everything I
54:02
can't get to my email, I can't even get into my my bank
54:05
account. I can't I can't pay any bills. It's continuously the
54:09
chapter 11 team the chapter 11 team that's John Ray the third
54:14
and he keeps saying over and over the first three pages the
54:18
chapter 11 Team freezing otherwise interfering with funds
54:21
I mean, we could give be giving this back to people it is my
54:24
opinion that they didn't want him at any way discrediting John
54:29
Ray the third in this testimony, that's why they had him
54:33
arrested. What is your thought?
54:35
Well, that's as far from my thoughts as possible. And he got
54:38
his 20 was 20 He's an idiot. And he's also a maniac and he still
54:44
thinks that they're gonna let him free he can restructure a
54:47
whole new deal and then pay everyone their money back. Yeah,
54:49
he's completely insane this guy Yes. And we're going one him and
54:54
when you shut down a company like this for fraud, no account
54:57
and embezzlement, which is what that guy says he He all he did
55:00
really is you don't want him running around the company's
55:04
destroying evidence. So you shut him out. So what that's not a
55:07
big deal. I wouldn't be shocked by that. They would think he was
55:10
by the by the Justice Department does this guy go to any number
55:16
dozens of countries because he had the money, dozens of
55:21
countries that had no extradition treaty with the
55:23
United States and insert himself there and just stay there. They
55:26
ignored when the word was out that he was ready to do that.
55:29
They had to get him arrested immediately in Bahamas, screw
55:33
the testimony. He's full of shit. We've heard him talk to
55:36
people before his testimony wasn't given any more than it
55:39
was in their written statement. So what's so what big deal?
55:43
I'm in total agreement. You just made my point. We can't have
55:46
this guy messing up anything. Let's arrest him. So that was my
55:49
premise. They arrested him so he wouldn't have to testify. So we
55:53
agree. No, they
55:54
arrested him. So he wouldn't escaped the country. In a non
55:57
extradition?
55:58
No, I'll tell you I'm gonna tell you. What, what was he going to
56:01
do? What testimony was he going to give that was going to be
56:04
meaningful in any way? They did
56:05
not want him discrediting John Ray the third, that is the only
56:10
thing and that
56:11
you have a connection between him and John Ray, the third the
56:14
chapter.
56:15
I'm telling you, he in his testimony, which would have been
56:19
read, which would have been submitted in the chapter 11 team
56:23
is John Ray, I'm telling you, okay, well,
56:26
they shut him. Yes. Shut him out. Yes, of course. That's what
56:29
you have to do what
56:30
I just said. You're acting like we're saying so. Okay. So
56:34
he testifies. What's he? What's his testimony? What's the big
56:37
doesn't mean he's gonna say there's nothing he has nothing
56:40
you miss reading me? The climber. Okay,
56:43
here's what I'm reading from you. They arrested him in the
56:46
Bahamas, so he wouldn't testify?
56:47
No. So he would not testify and discredit John Ray the third.
56:52
That's all
56:53
that's all. How's he going to discredit him?
56:56
Because he's, I'm reading his testimony. And the whole opening
57:00
the first three pages is discrediting the chapter 11
57:03
team, which is John Ray, the third. That's my point.
57:07
But what sort of discredit ation are we discussing here? He's
57:12
being shut out of his own company. And whining about
57:15
let's just Alright, it doesn't matter. They didn't want him to
57:19
testify. Period. Doesn't matter. I'm in really cared. Okay, fine.
57:25
Fine. And that testimony is public. So we all know about
57:29
it now. Oh, sure. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. That's really
57:31
how things go viral. When people find out about things. Live, I'm
57:35
going to make my case as to what's really going on
57:38
federal prosecutor is a bank been free to also violated
57:40
campaign finance law using millions of dollars in customer
57:44
funds to make illegal campaign contributions to members of both
57:47
political parties trying to influence the regulation of
57:50
cryptocurrency. He faces a maximum 115 years in prison,
57:55
Nora.
57:56
Yeah, the story's not over Scott McFarlane, thank you so much.
57:59
Exactly. And he is going to go to jail. He is the fall guy. He
58:03
is an idiot. He is stupid. Because it is the CEO of
58:08
Alameda. She's the one she made the decisions. She She
58:14
commingled funds. She also probably humped him when he was
58:18
getting a little bit out of line. She's the one connected
58:21
directly to MIT and Gary Gensler. She's the one that has
58:26
all the connections, her dad is so tightly connected, and now
58:29
she's got the best securities lawyers you've got, you know,
58:32
who was supposed to be setting up. When he was in government,
58:37
he would be working on regulation. She's the one she's
58:40
protected, and bagman freed is going to jail for a long time
58:45
completely abused by his parents. And it was beautiful to
58:49
the parents. By the way, if you hear some of the stories about
58:52
them in court, and some of these hearings, they're really
58:59
something giggling and there's they're laughing they're rolling
59:05
their eyes are making a scene. Yeah.
59:08
They don't give their their son's going away. And they're
59:11
bad parents. They are very, very bad. By the way, both Stanford
59:15
professors Stanford, so here's just a Oh, yeah. Okay, now, if
59:19
you're going to
59:20
swap, let me let me continue.
59:23
Play if you've made a point back there that you're not going to
59:26
make again, it seems to me, there is something amiss about
59:29
this, these political donations can and the thing that's really
59:34
and that I could see, well, maybe you don't want them
59:35
talking about that. Why did you decide to give Maxine Waters so
59:39
much money because you know, the Republicans are gonna ask
59:41
questions,
59:42
they're gonna ask questions, as well.
59:46
Well, here's the thing that you just brought that up, all of a
59:49
sudden out of the blue when it looked like he was really giving
59:52
to do mostly these broke senators and congressmen and
59:56
people that he wanted. He didn't want it, you know, anti Trump
59:59
people, all that sort of thing. think the word comes out? Well,
1:00:01
he gave to both parties. It was bypass. Yeah. Where did that
1:00:05
come from? And what bipartisan are we talking about?
1:00:08
This thing was so meant to be tightly controlled by Maxine
1:00:12
Waters, who, of course, you know is as has taken all kinds of
1:00:16
goodies from the FTX crew that she she tried to shut this thing
1:00:21
down before even all the House members had asked her questions.
1:00:24
I would like to enter into the record the closing statements
1:00:27
from Ranking Member McHenry and myself. And I'd like to thank
1:00:32
you, Mr. John Ray, that are Chairwoman waters presence here
1:00:35
today. Your warm waters, I've not had an opportunity to
1:00:37
testify or to question the witness. I'd like to thank you
1:00:45
for your presence here. Woman waters and for the parliamentary
1:00:49
inquiry. Yes. Are all members entitled to question witnesses?
1:00:53
You are and if you would like to miss the votes on the floor,
1:00:56
every
1:00:57
chair woman's prerogative to call a recess. Is your decision
1:01:01
not mine?
1:01:02
Just one moment, please. You may go right ahead and have five
1:01:06
minutes. Thank you. Thank you, Madam Chair. You certainly
1:01:09
welcome sir.
1:01:11
Big fu from Maxine. She was trying to shut it all down. Like
1:01:15
let's just move along people. I've got everything I need. It's
1:01:17
good to go. We don't need any confusing talk about donations.
1:01:21
I'm telling you right now. It's the Carolyn CEO chick she's the
1:01:25
one
1:01:25
but you might be right about that, that I don't I don't have
1:01:28
that in my arsenal to argue. But I'll say this. Maxine Waters is
1:01:33
so slimy and slippery. She'll get away with just be fine.
1:01:37
She'll be fine. I'm
1:01:37
sure. There were there were some stars present and some funny
1:01:41
moments. It's really hard to find true victims. And I've
1:01:45
asked around I even asked
1:01:47
a woman today by the way is Carolyn Ellison, Ellison.
1:01:50
I even asked. Horowitz I said it has any of your clients had any?
1:01:57
Any losses from FTX is not a single one. I said I'm looking
1:02:00
for the victims. Now, I think this was largely a victimless
1:02:04
crime. Yeah, there were some big whales and Oh, okay. Well, Kevin
1:02:08
O'Leary, who on one he didn't lose money, he didn't get paid
1:02:12
his $12 million for promoting this. Now he says it was 12
1:02:17
at least one ESG ratings firm gave FTX a I'm sorry. Yeah,
1:02:21
higher score for Governor governance than Exxon Mobil give
1:02:26
testimony that FTX has collapsed.
1:02:28
Actually, I'm sorry. My setup was for the Kevin O'Leary clip.
1:02:32
There's my Kevin O'Leary clip, which features Elizabeth Warren,
1:02:36
pay no attention to O'Leary. It's what she says that's funny.
1:02:38
I take issue,
1:02:39
Senator with
1:02:40
your concept that it makes it easier to do money laundering
1:02:43
currencies, and
1:02:44
it's talking about now we're talking about all kinds of
1:02:46
crypto, it's too easy for money laundering
1:02:49
to have been used for drug trafficking scenes since the 60s
1:02:52
and the American dollar when it was thrown out of a Piper
1:02:54
aircraft and a duffel bag. The American dollar is also used by
1:02:58
bad actors all the time.
1:03:00
It's true. I appreciate
1:03:02
your point that everyone tries to engage in money laundering.
1:03:05
That's what terrorists do. That's what drug company drug
1:03:09
dealers do. And the
1:03:12
truth comes out Lizzie Oh, yeah, drug companies, they want to
1:03:17
launder their money. Yes, they do. Yes, they do. And now with
1:03:22
finally we wrap it up with who is this bar fellow, you must be
1:03:27
another you must be a Republican asking John Ray about about the
1:03:34
ESG score of this company.
1:03:37
ESG ratings firm gave FTX a higher score for Governor
1:03:41
governance than Exxon Mobil. Given your testimony that FTX
1:03:46
has collapsed stems from the absolute concentration of
1:03:49
control in the hands of a very small group of grossly
1:03:53
inexperienced and unsophisticated individuals who
1:03:55
failed to implement virtually any of the systems or controls
1:03:59
necessary for a company that is entrusted with other people's
1:04:02
money or assets. What would you say about this ESG governance
1:04:07
rating, which rated FTX higher than Exxon Mobil? I get my money
1:04:13
back.
1:04:16
Exactly. These are the cool things you learn in one of these
1:04:19
hearings. It of course, never makes it anywhere. It's all a
1:04:22
big scam. All of it.
1:04:27
So this Carol Ellison was another she's a daughter of
1:04:34
another professor
1:04:35
at MIT. Yeah, the
1:04:37
MIT guy
1:04:38
and was at MIT. He was Gary Gensler, his boss.
1:04:42
Okay, MIT. Yeah, I mean, I said data thieves. Big den
1:04:49
of thieves, and she's got some hotshot lawyer.
1:04:53
No, well, no, no, I had to follow this. Why wouldn't you?
1:04:56
Why was the mastermind Well, I
1:04:58
know she's the mastermind but why? Wouldn't you have her in
1:05:01
custody she's in New York walking around getting getting
1:05:04
cappuccinos she I mean how she cannot be culpable as the CEO of
1:05:10
Alameda which all of it is bet bet is bankrupt now all of it
1:05:13
not just FTX
1:05:18
Anyway, good question. Why is she Why isn't she locked up?
1:05:22
Exactly. Nine APA the other guy could be dead by the time they
1:05:26
get them out of there. Because they put it as grid points. It's
1:05:29
like one of the worst jails in the world that when these
1:05:32
hanging out in
1:05:33
Oh, in the Bahamas? Yeah.
1:05:37
Get a shiv.
1:05:41
FTX someone sent me a Wikipedia entry FTX also acronym for field
1:05:46
training exercise. Just thought that was interesting. When it
1:05:52
comes to when it comes to money, though, things the Rabobank
1:05:57
which is one of the largest retail banks in the Netherlands
1:06:00
has been sending letters to customers who often get you
1:06:07
know, 200 euros from the the ATM. And it's a big warning
1:06:13
notice that hey, we you know, we noticed that you've been taking
1:06:16
out 100 or 200 euros at a time, you really have to know that
1:06:20
this is incredibly dangerous to have this amount of cash and,
1:06:23
and by by getting these big amounts, these 100 Euro bills,
1:06:29
you're actually propagating fraud and money laundering and
1:06:33
drug trafficking because these this money is pretty much only
1:06:37
has only been touched by money launderers and fraudsters. And
1:06:41
they're sending this to their customers.
1:06:43
Should we ever do? Is this
1:06:44
true? I saw I'd have to two notes, two letters picture
1:06:48
you have any photocopies or? Photos? Yeah, what's Dutch?
1:06:51
Well, I want to put them in the newsletter.
1:06:52
Okay, and How about how about I do that and I translate it for
1:06:55
you? Yes, please. Thank you. Let me just see what bring it up
1:07:00
right here. There's a couple of these actually, people have been
1:07:03
tweeting these letters. And then yeah, there say it's here we go.
1:07:10
Let me just begin this for a second. Translating on the fly.
1:07:13
Oh, man, just why can't you just put the picture in there you
1:07:16
take me to Twitter to go click on it again. I'm so fed up with
1:07:19
this linking shit. Okay, to give you some alternatives, the risks
1:07:28
the risks of cash money. If you're getting bills of 205 100
1:07:35
There you are risking using cash money and being unwittingly
1:07:42
involved in white washing, laundering, terrorism, financing
1:07:47
and other criminal activity. This could also be the case
1:07:51
you buy an Apple in the corner store and you give the guy a
1:07:54
couple of euros and now you're involved in money laundering.
1:07:58
It goes further. You could even be involved if you accept a
1:08:02
large bill like
1:08:03
this. How does that work?
1:08:05
Well if someone says hey, I owe you 200 euros and they give you
1:08:08
a 200 I guess there's a 200 Yeah there's a 200 Euro bill you
1:08:12
accepting that you could actually be helping criminal
1:08:16
criminal activity how to be just by keeping them I'm telling I'm
1:08:21
reading it in real time John they're not saying how they're
1:08:25
saying so they're just saying yes yes I'm reading it live okay
1:08:29
money for that no
1:08:30
I'm a guy I get what you're doing is asking the questions
1:08:33
that would be obvious to anyone who has common sense
1:08:36
money that originated in criminal with criminal activity
1:08:44
is often cut into smaller pieces and put into the financial
1:08:49
system as the system the financial system 200 Euro so
1:08:57
they know they are white washing a million euros but they split
1:09:00
up into 205 100 Euro bills and it's probably all criminal and
1:09:04
you shouldn't be taking out of the ATM so
1:09:07
all criminals show any cash is cash is criminal There you go.
1:09:10
We should be
1:09:11
criminal and it used to be 500 euros they've now made it 200 Mm
1:09:18
hmm. Criminal cash and maybe even better if we just swap
1:09:22
those around that there's you know, cash is Kryptos is
1:09:25
criminal nine Nigerian lawmakers get on that. So that's that's
1:09:30
what's happening.
1:09:33
That's nuts.
1:09:35
Yeah, it's and still
1:09:38
so here's another when did we have the talking about one bank?
1:09:41
Here's another bank is my W th clip. Play it through Danish
1:09:45
bank, you know, but just
1:09:47
let's say Justice Department announced that the largest bank
1:09:50
in Denmark has pleaded guilty to defrauding American banks and
1:09:54
will forfeit $2 billion. Danske Bank also agreed to a separate
1:09:58
settlement with the US secure Ladies and Exchange Commission,
1:10:01
and we'll pay over $400 million to settle charges. The bank also
1:10:05
settled with Danish authorities. The agreement with the United
1:10:08
States settles a long running investigation into billions of
1:10:12
dollars in illicit payments. The case has plagued the company for
1:10:16
nearly five years and was part of one of the largest ever money
1:10:19
laundering scandals. Prosecutors alleged the bank lied about
1:10:22
their customers in Estonia and anti money laundering controls.
1:10:27
As a result US banks accepted $160 billion from high risk
1:10:31
clients outside of Estonia. Officials are still
1:10:34
investigating the case.
1:10:36
Oh man, there's so much corruption coming
1:10:39
let me let me just ask the question you just read that
1:10:41
note. The bank seemed to be the criminals why are they pinning
1:10:46
it on the poor customers?
1:10:48
Hello? Hello Of course.
1:10:52
So what piece of shit bank was it that wrote that note you are
1:10:55
reading
1:10:56
the Rabobank the same bank that owns mechanics
1:11:01
FYI
1:11:03
they don't own mechanic mechanics traded. You told me
1:11:07
that they were purchased no note no mechanics purchased a
1:11:12
Rabobank subsidy that was in the United
1:11:15
oh I'm sorry, all the way around. Okay, so from from the
1:11:18
Rabobank, that's the bank.
1:11:22
It's the right name,
1:11:24
robbing bank robbing a bank robber. But meanwhile, things
1:11:29
are popping up in in the EU everybody's corrupt.
1:11:33
I think the details of this case so far is partly what has
1:11:36
shocked people across Brussels and beyond. So Belgian
1:11:40
prosecutors came out on Friday and said that they carried out a
1:11:43
series of raids on properties across Brussels they'd seized
1:11:47
600,000 euros in cash. And as well over the weekend, we
1:11:54
learned that among those arrested for had been charged
1:11:59
among them is reported to be Eva Kelly, who is this Greek MEP, a
1:12:05
vice president of the European Parliament one of 14 Although
1:12:08
she has now been stripped of her powers by the European
1:12:11
Parliament presidents Roberta Metzeler also reportedly charged
1:12:17
Francesco Georgie a Parliamentary Assistant and her
1:12:19
partner, Eva Kelly partner. So among the charged we are told,
1:12:26
now, I think for MEPs, the European Parliament it's going
1:12:31
to raise some big questions and the European Commission
1:12:33
president Ursula von der Leyen has today come out and said
1:12:36
there is a question now of public trust in the institutions
1:12:40
of the European Union, and MEPs are in fact now gathered or
1:12:46
gathering in Strasburg, the French city where they meet for
1:12:49
their regular plenary session, this unfolding scandal is
1:12:55
completely overshadowing events there and is likely to dominate
1:12:59
proceedings.
1:13:00
So the Greek hottie is the one in the headlines, but there have
1:13:02
been four socialist members of European Parliament who have
1:13:06
stepped down now because of this. Pietro Bartolo Andrea
1:13:11
Kozol, Leona Koza lino Maria Urena and Mark Terra Bella. So
1:13:15
it's all socialists all on the take all in this in this in this
1:13:19
scam to vote Qatar as the the the place for the 2022 World Cup
1:13:27
and they apparently took bags of cash money, not crypto, by the
1:13:32
way, cash cash money. And it's the liberals. It's the
1:13:37
socialists who are doing this the socialists,
1:13:40
they're bored.
1:13:42
Okay, I have just an interlude. Listen to this report. And I'll
1:13:47
tell you who this is 51 year old Catherine Aroo. Jones faces a
1:13:51
judge in bond court on Friday, instead of a national audience
1:13:55
many know are from under the name of Kathy Rue is a former
1:13:58
contributor for Fox News. Now we see her in this mugshot,
1:14:02
and what we find here is very incredibly tragic situation of
1:14:09
elderly exploitation.
1:14:11
An arrest affidavit, says Catherine Andrew Jones
1:14:13
victimized her 88 year old mother first without her
1:14:16
knowledge, transferring ownership of her mother's home
1:14:18
to herself through a quitclaim deed and then stealing $224,000
1:14:23
over finances including proceeds of a reverse mortgage. I can
1:14:27
keep going on so she kidnapped her mom. She stole her money
1:14:32
reverse mortgage her house who washy she was the liberal Sherpa
1:14:38
from Tucker Carlson show another liberal Do you remember her?
1:14:45
Oh, now I don't pay if I saw a picture of her probably
1:14:48
she's also the one who after appearing on Tucker show for a
1:14:53
couple of years, then accused him of sexual harassment in a
1:14:57
hotel and the end Hannity and a couple others Fox people you
1:15:01
can't trust these people
1:15:02
and it turns out that that she she's a criminal.
1:15:05
Yes she's a grifter but
1:15:07
she literally was the the.
1:15:10
The liberal spoke so they always had their balanced coverage.
1:15:14
Exactly.
1:15:15
Exactly. You gotta see that whole bit and she looks like so
1:15:18
haggard compared to how she looked kinda cute. Is the
1:15:21
liberal
1:15:22
English. They have makeup artist at Fox. Good one.
1:15:26
All right. There's more. A little bit more about this Eva
1:15:28
Cali thing. This is dynamite
1:15:30
Qatar denies any involvement. But Kylie has now been charged
1:15:34
by Belgian police as part of a corruption investigation. They
1:15:37
raided 16 homes in Brussels on Friday and seized 600,000 euro
1:15:42
in cash, along with computers and phones. Trade Union boss
1:15:46
Luca Vicent, teeny and former MEP Antonio pensieri have also
1:15:50
been questioned. Greek authorities have frozen all of
1:15:54
ever Kylie's assets and those of her family there will always be
1:15:58
some for whom a bag of cash is always worth the risk. And what
1:16:04
is essential is that these people understand that they will
1:16:09
get caught. Some who have worked inside the European Parliament
1:16:12
are not surprised by this scandal. I think that the real
1:16:15
problem here
1:16:16
that we need to address is the fact that the wrongdoings of
1:16:18
MEPs not just MEPs but also the very senior staff members in
1:16:23
there are actually covered up by the administration
1:16:26
questions are now being asked about positive statements made
1:16:29
towards Qatar by European Commissioner Margarita Skinners.
1:16:32
This is not the way to organize a press conference here. Were
1:16:37
questions journalists had to force a response during a Monday
1:16:40
press conference. We are at the status quo. But indeed if any
1:16:45
kind of new information occurs, we will have to act and react to
1:16:50
that. Apart from being extremely serious. Analysts say this is
1:16:54
very embarrassing for EU authorities, as they always
1:16:57
present a blog as being whiter than white pointing the finger
1:17:00
at alleged corruption around the world. It's understood officials
1:17:05
here in the EU are bracing themselves sources tell us there
1:17:09
will be further revelations in the coming days.
1:17:12
Oh yeah. The top official at the Bank of France central bankers
1:17:20
Sylvie goulard stepped down during a probe suspicion of
1:17:25
accepting bribes influence peddling illegal conflicts of
1:17:28
interest breach of trust it's happening everywhere that
1:17:35
squeezing people out man they're gonna blame all these people for
1:17:38
the pending collapse or whatever is gonna happen.
1:17:41
Now what's How did this began? When we knew about it, it was a
1:17:48
week ago when this woman we first found out about it and has
1:17:53
been just it's been a again a ballooning in importance well
1:17:59
how did this begin specifically
1:18:00
it's all a sudden all All I know is we heard about the raids. So
1:18:06
what somebody has to somebody has to be somebody a
1:18:10
whistleblower and
1:18:10
Qatar you don't know anything yet.
1:18:12
We have no informed we don't know anything is something very
1:18:15
suspicious about this. Because then once you get on to take a,
1:18:20
you're always you have to be it you're gonna be able to take
1:18:22
forever because you can't do it. You have to do
1:18:24
nothing. That's great. That makes this story Great. Is this
1:18:28
Eva? Kyle? Kylie, she She's too pretty for politics. There's no
1:18:34
way it's makes no sense. If you've seen her,
1:18:38
I went and looked at a gallery of her photos she is I was and
1:18:42
I'm going to either sell a couple of executive producer
1:18:45
This is why we do it this way. Yeah. This is she is I think
1:18:51
moderately attractive. And she has but it's I've given her
1:18:55
about a 70% photogenic result because there's a lot of photos
1:19:01
of her that make her do not make her look as pretty as she does
1:19:04
in her best photos. And the only ones that the media is showing
1:19:08
are the pretty photos. So I think it may be we may be okay,
1:19:12
we're being duped a little lengthy. We're being duped a
1:19:14
little because you know that pretty girl. It has to be you
1:19:17
know, conniving pretty girl, girls. I mean, it has all
1:19:21
she got long legs, long legs,
1:19:24
and that sort of thing. So I'm not convinced if you saw her in
1:19:28
person that you'd be that impressed.
1:19:29
Okay, well, but still. You look at it. You go you're not your
1:19:33
typical member European Parliament, Vice President of
1:19:37
the of Starfleet Command, there's just not there's not
1:19:40
typical. Typical. Yeah. You know, remember? That's
1:19:46
interesting, actually. When did Dominique Strauss Kahn get
1:19:49
kicked out? Dolman? Wasn't that Oh,
1:19:52
that was some time back.
1:19:53
But wasn't that just before the financial collapse?
1:19:58
Oh, now yeah, do we need timeline. I
1:20:00
don't know I couldn't get out. We can get on the wiki PD, I can
1:20:03
tell you exactly when that happened. Because he got kicked
1:20:06
out by the guard with a guard. Yeah.
1:20:13
was also a person who if you look at a lot of photos ever,
1:20:17
you're gonna find some real gems of making her look like Holy
1:20:20
mackerel.
1:20:21
Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. So when was he kicked out? He was kicked
1:20:23
out. 22 Why is this so hard to hear? 2011? That's a little a
1:20:36
little late. Now. It's a little late on
1:20:38
that day way too late.
1:20:40
It's way too late. Interesting. I don't know. I don't know.
1:20:43
I guess there was something else going on. We don't know. There's
1:20:45
also more than likely
1:20:47
there's also these reports that Merkel. Now they're Russian
1:20:51
reports, of course, from RT and that's why because you know,
1:20:54
you're not going to hear that anywhere else. We might as well
1:20:56
read it to you.
1:20:57
Well, the miracle stuff that floating around the out of
1:21:02
country intelligence community is that she's just a stooge for
1:21:06
the United States she was useless for Germany
1:21:10
confession by former German Chancellor Angela Merkel about
1:21:13
the Minsk peace agreements could be used as evidence in a
1:21:15
tribunal involving Western politicians responsible for
1:21:18
provoking the Ukraine conflict between Moscow and Kyiv sounds
1:21:22
like a stretch but apparently she said something in some some
1:21:31
on board with the idea there was this provocation took place for
1:21:35
the purpose. I don't know what the long game is, but some
1:21:38
people think it may be combined nicely with this with this
1:21:43
corruption scandal. I think the EU is under attack by the United
1:21:46
States.
1:21:48
Especially when you're when central bankers are going down.
1:21:51
Yeah, sometimes actually. Especially these get a little
1:21:54
note. Speaking of elites about the the Biden Department of
1:22:01
Energy official who was stealing, stealing,
1:22:05
we talked about him last show, right. But I got
1:22:07
an answer about you know, you work saying why don't we have
1:22:10
something to protect the suitcases? Right?
1:22:16
A system that would be in place that make it so you can't steal
1:22:19
suitcases so effortlessly?
1:22:21
Right? So So Joe, who was our insider in the industry from NL
1:22:25
Ria net.net, which is airline.net backwards, heard
1:22:30
your comments. Basically, it's a cost benefit thing at airports
1:22:32
that have high theft rates they rope off the bag pickup and a
1:22:35
guard verifies the bag tag with the bag check sticker on your
1:22:39
ticket or app. This is rare though.
1:22:41
The airlines are very rare. I have never encountered it
1:22:44
the airlines are responsible for the cost of lost bags if the
1:22:48
cost of stolen bags exceeds the cost of guards. The airlines
1:22:51
will pay for guards it's rare it gets to that point exactly it's
1:22:58
so simple it's
1:22:59
always been that way he has his cost benefits dipinto effect
1:23:02
it's pay the bills who cares this I got blocked out much
1:23:10
easier to pay. First cheaper to pay.
1:23:14
And with that I'd like to thank you for your courage and saying
1:23:16
the morning to you the man who put the seas in the cache is
1:23:19
criminal ladies and gentlemen, please say hello to my friend on
1:23:22
the other end Mr. Johnson
1:23:30
Mr. Adam curiosa Louie chips to see good morning Bucha the
1:23:34
graffiti
1:23:36
and the morning to the room Hello trolls you can find the
1:23:39
control room.io They hang out there. They're usually trollee
1:23:48
they do give us good information. Sometimes it's just
1:23:50
affirmation. And there's always a good joke in there one liner
1:23:53
from time to time and we'd love welcoming these trolls you can
1:23:57
listen live to this broadcast as we do it before this studio
1:24:01
audience of trolls on Sundays and Thursdays but there's always
1:24:04
something going on at no agenda. stream.com So let's see how many
1:24:07
trolls we have. Below man 1775 That's low.
1:24:16
Yeah, last year it was I think we had 2000 1900 to 2000 last
1:24:21
week less than that was a good day and
1:24:23
was not so great.
1:24:24
Maybe because you know they look at the news they got the holiday
1:24:27
shopping the whole eastern seaboard coast and Midwest has
1:24:31
snowed in I think we have a lot of people that can't even listen
1:24:37
to us because they got no internet. They got no power.
1:24:39
Yeah. Possibly more.
1:24:43
More than if you could be anything's possible. Well, real
1:24:47
mesh. Well, Sonny here,
1:24:50
you can also check the activity and no agenda social.com which
1:24:53
is our Macedon server. We've had that for several years, three
1:24:56
years, four years, I think almost almost four years to
1:24:59
really Three and a half for sure. Three and a half, I think
1:25:02
so she's, yeah. No, it had it before we moved to southeast
1:25:06
Austin. So it's at least three and a half years. And so we were
1:25:10
we were part of the Federer's not by the way, the fediverse
1:25:13
didn't start with Mastodon, it goes back to new chat. So, it's
1:25:19
been around for a long, long time.
1:25:20
You always had to mention good new chat.
1:25:22
Yeah, because otherwise, you know, the people take credit for
1:25:25
things like good new chat was there before Mastodon Mastodon
1:25:29
is a great interface. Pleroma is all kinds of you can make your
1:25:32
own. We don't make our own. But we've got Aaron er who runs are
1:25:36
instance with a lot of TLC, because men, it's a lot of
1:25:41
bandwidth storage, and it's not very efficient, but it works and
1:25:45
we're happy. And that's where I think we still have a couple
1:25:48
slots in our 10,000 our 10k limit, go to sign up.no agenda
1:25:52
social.com and just follow Adam and Noah themselves.com Jhansi.
1:25:56
Dvorak at nodes in the social.com. From anywhere where
1:25:59
you are get on the fediverse There you go. So we said See,
1:26:04
thank the
1:26:06
artists for episode is very controversial, very
1:26:09
controversial.
1:26:10
So we always as a part of our value for value model, which
1:26:14
means we believe that we create a very valuable product if you
1:26:18
think it's valuable return that in some fashion, we ask for
1:26:21
time, talent treasure, and we'll get to the treasure in a moment
1:26:24
but the time and talent definitely comes from our
1:26:27
artists who make sure that we have some art to awesome art to
1:26:30
choose from. From no agenda art generator.com every single
1:26:35
episode, and we do just that and we have an
1:26:38
announcement I want to and he's supposed to say something.
1:26:46
Ladies and gentlemen, John has a note
1:26:49
for all the artists I'm for the next few newsletters, I'm going
1:26:53
to need some Christmas art. And I've been digging into the
1:26:56
archives to get the ones I've been using for the newsletters
1:26:59
like theirs are all very old. The last couple of newsletters
1:27:03
and I would just weather some you know anything we've got very
1:27:07
little Christmas artists all Twitter, like I look at the page
1:27:11
is a lot of greens and there's a bunch of tweets and his Twitter
1:27:14
art. And it's just it's there's very few there's very little
1:27:19
seasonal art anyone's doing and I'm I'm complaining about it,
1:27:24
but mostly for the benefit of the Noosa not having to use
1:27:27
really, you know, art that's eight years old is none of its
1:27:31
stolen. But I'm just saying I'm looking at this page of art and
1:27:36
it's just like this is nothing even remotely seasonal about any
1:27:39
of this stuff.
1:27:39
Well the first thing we'll do is we want to congratulate Taunton
1:27:42
Niall, I believe that was two in a row for her. Yes, it was a
1:27:47
very controversial choice. We selected the this bag has no
1:27:51
agenda, which we both liked the tag on the bag. John took
1:27:55
immediate exception to the curry Dvorak coloring on the bag
1:27:59
itself. Yeah, it was hard to see they were in fact I didn't even
1:28:03
see it with my eyes. i All I saw was the tag. I didn't even see I
1:28:06
didn't tell you at the time.
1:28:09
I feel it. You saw it because you weren't complaining about it
1:28:12
at all.
1:28:13
Well, now we first of all, there's a couple of issues. You
1:28:17
right away said I really liked the Elon Musk. Comic Strip
1:28:22
blogger, a joker art. Yeah. And I said, Here's my stand.
1:28:29
I bet by the way, this is important for the artists to
1:28:31
hear.
1:28:32
I refuse and I won't always catch it. I refuse to put a so
1:28:37
called a I generated anything into this program. So he arts
1:28:44
now I said I thought that I had I do not have that same opinion.
1:28:49
And I vouched for my Slavic brother
1:28:52
you did you did? You did like a shill like a Slavic shill.
1:28:56
Yes we do is what you're supposed to do. And in fact, uma
1:29:00
In fact, you even think you took on a bit of the accent I live on
1:29:04
that's odd for my Slavic brother.
1:29:06
Exactly. And so I don't feel this way but the way this is
1:29:12
done you should note is it's as it's 100% agreement veto power
1:29:18
and we both have veto power so if and I'm just like all giddy
1:29:23
about some piece of shit I was just veto and now it'll be the
1:29:25
end of it. So he's vetoed all AI art so don't even try it. I have
1:29:30
it
1:29:31
I have and of course everyone's going to try and get it by us
1:29:33
now do whatever you want. But you are hurting your brothers
1:29:37
and sisters and you're
1:29:38
asking to be banned.
1:29:40
Oh yeah yeah, exactly. I don't know I don't know where from but
1:29:44
something okay. We'll take care of man well Banyan we're just
1:29:48
gonna banjo
1:29:48
so we looked over the other pieces and there was there
1:29:52
wasn't that I mean there's all kinds of those kinds of okay and
1:29:56
it was usable. There's lots of usable pieces we I have to say I
1:29:59
did Like, immediately before the tag you like to know agenda
1:30:05
substack heroes,
1:30:07
which was the best piece it wasn't it was the prettiest
1:30:09
piece without a capitalist
1:30:11
agendas piece, the substack heroes, right? We don't want to
1:30:13
go on too much about this because people can't see this
1:30:15
necessarily, but gorgeous piece. But I was of the impression that
1:30:20
by putting substack heroes on there, and not with no
1:30:23
explanation, it indicated that we the two of us were substack
1:30:27
heroes, and we weren't. And the reference was to Te B and Barry
1:30:32
Weiss. And so that guy killed for that reason I'd like logic
1:30:37
of it.
1:30:38
I'd like to say two things about this one, the idea, of course, I
1:30:42
completely agree with you. But people can follow along. If they
1:30:48
have a modern podcast app, new podcast apps.com, when we're
1:30:51
taught you look at the app when we're talking about the art
1:30:53
changes, or you can just bring up no agenda art generator.com.
1:30:57
Part two, is I have to say something about the substack
1:31:03
heroes, because I wanted to investigate what is going on
1:31:07
with this Barry Weiss with Tai Chi with this, you know, the
1:31:11
free press.com. And so I signed up to substack as a creator as a
1:31:16
sub stacker. I haven't published anything,
1:31:19
nor will I write some essays. But right away.
1:31:23
I'm not enough. Right away. I got some I got a marketing
1:31:27
message from substack and email. It said what can media empires
1:31:32
look like on substack? exploring a new model for media
1:31:35
organizations. So I opened up the email, what does it say?
1:31:39
When Barry Weiss launched common sense on substack, she set out
1:31:43
to create a media institution that is much bigger than
1:31:46
herself. So as I predicted, wow, as I predicted, this is all and
1:31:52
Glenn Greenwald's behind it. It'll come out. I'll bet you you
1:31:59
got this. Didn't you get this email
1:32:00
from substack? He joined substack years ago,
1:32:03
and maybe they just sent it out about this one, two years.
1:32:06
No, I get nothing. Anyway,
1:32:09
I get nothing else. It's in the show notes. It's well worth
1:32:13
taking a look at. Alright, so
1:32:14
yeah, I think that's dynamite. So back to this piece. It was
1:32:17
good. But that piece next to it you actually liked. I didn't
1:32:20
care for it, but you liked it a lot. Well, it's your no list, as
1:32:25
opposed to simply
1:32:26
Yeah. And I didn't fight you on that. I didn't find out
1:32:29
why wasn't going to happen. And it was that we both came to the
1:32:33
agreement about the tag because the tag was so beautiful the way
1:32:36
it was done. In terms of his professionalism. It was so
1:32:41
pretty that we reluctantly picked it. No offense to tend to
1:32:46
kneel No, but it was not. It was not the one that you know that.
1:32:51
I would say that sub state heroes was the probably the
1:32:54
piece that would have happened if it wasn't a confusing piece.
1:32:59
But Tanzania's snuck it in again. She's done she's she's
1:33:02
sneaky she's she's really good. She gets a lot of pieces. That's
1:33:05
how that's how art works. She's
1:33:07
Sneaky sneaky, but I'm very sorry I'm very troubled by all
1:33:14
things and it's it's yes, it's a i It's not artificial
1:33:18
intelligence and what you're reading is m the AI open AI chat
1:33:23
GPT it's basically Alexa. That speaks better English is stupid.
1:33:29
And I'm sick and tired of people. Oh, look what look I
1:33:32
made a poem with a with AI. Oh, look, a minister who? Who I
1:33:37
wrote you a letter with AI or did it report it? Once you go go
1:33:41
away?
1:33:43
I get a time code please. And yeah, I'm
1:33:44
so sick of this jacked up Ness over AI especially when it comes
1:33:49
to art any kind of art writing a musical performance recording
1:33:56
this art? No, keep people
1:33:58
keep people we got it. Okay, don't wait, we get the point.
1:34:02
Now let's
1:34:02
thank our executive and Associate Executive producers
1:34:05
for episode 15 112. And we kick it off with Stuart Walton. Who
1:34:10
comes to us from Stafford in Great Britain. $1,000 He's in
1:34:14
blue. I'm saying he's going to be an instant aid. Let's see his
1:34:17
note reads. Dear uncle John and Uncle Adam. Okay, feel old.
1:34:22
Thanks, Stuart from Stafford here. As you can tell. It has
1:34:26
been over 12 years when I promised to be in touch if I
1:34:30
ever broke the bank on the lottery. Well, I'm not that
1:34:33
lucky but the financial Wheel of Fortune has turned in my favor
1:34:36
this month and now time to pay back the best podcast in the
1:34:40
universe. I love it when people make that's fine too. We're
1:34:44
happy with that value 12 years and you're paying for it now.
1:34:48
Thank you. No no wish to claim Christmas night status as per
1:34:52
your latest email was an instant eight donation. I don't donate
1:34:55
it $5 per month for many years, celebrated Mother's Day and
1:34:59
Father's Day for the last few years a few other donations
1:35:01
which probably has taken me over the $1,000 level Oh, bury the
1:35:04
lead here. But I may have been too lazy to do the accounting
1:35:08
and claim the title ironic given that I'm an accountant
1:35:11
always saying the shoemaker with the bare feet that's right to me
1:35:14
because kids
1:35:15
have no shoes. I wish Adam and yourself continued good
1:35:18
podcasting karma and please May you never find that fabled exit
1:35:22
route onwards for the next 15 years the best media
1:35:25
deconstructed Happy Christmas that's what they say in the UK
1:35:27
and the very best wishes from England Stewart Walton he says
1:35:31
no jingles no comma but can I have biltong biltong and any
1:35:37
wine from South Africa at the roundtable was built on
1:35:42
just to look it up he'll Tong probably some of the South
1:35:45
African thing built on you when you go to a bar in South Africa
1:35:49
they one of the instead of having like you know they have
1:35:51
the little snacks.
1:35:53
Yeah, don't have a roofie right away Don't say
1:35:57
they have ostrich jerky notch is so good. You can't believe
1:36:02
what a South African wine do you recommend?
1:36:06
Oh, just you know Taj of any sort I guess you know, Tommy is
1:36:10
Pino Taj, just a Pinot Taj. I don't have a brand, South
1:36:14
African beef bit like,
1:36:17
you know, Taj anyone doesn't matter. Just get it from the
1:36:19
seller. Okay, it's good.
1:36:22
Right. It's a form of dried cured meat that originally is
1:36:26
South African countries. Which I guess is what the ostrich would
1:36:30
be too. It'd be a form of it. Yeah. Okay. As Yorkie Yeah.
1:36:34
Hello, jerky? Yo. All right. I'm sorry. Shawn. Stedman go
1:36:45
podcasting. 33333. This came in as a bank transfer. And I want
1:36:50
to mention something here. This is we have
1:36:53
Did you miss his note? He has a whole note here.
1:36:56
I have the note. I'm going to read the note. I just want to
1:36:59
know what the bank transfer. Oh, if I don't know what mechanism
1:37:02
you use, it was U S. A was some system that he's got. He got the
1:37:07
money straight into the bank, which I had to tell Jay about
1:37:13
them out because you're gonna send these notes and put that
1:37:15
amount in there at least. So I don't have to go look it up. But
1:37:19
the this is the best form of getting money to us because
1:37:25
there is no charges whatsoever to us go away. Excellent. If for
1:37:29
example, Pay Pal when you send them 1000 bucks, about 25 bucks
1:37:33
goes to pay pal. Or even if you send in five bucks, you know,
1:37:36
they get if they get like 50 cents. If you send a check in,
1:37:41
that's really a good way. Because you can control the
1:37:45
message of the batch. Right you write a note right there and
1:37:48
scratch out your name. There's a 15 cent check cashing charge.
1:37:55
For every check that sent in. After we have to have a couple
1:37:59
100 checks. And so I would wish as long as you pass that look at
1:38:02
the beginning of the year. So that's 15 cents. This is no
1:38:05
charge. That's good. Zero this goes to st 3333 straight into
1:38:11
the bank without any middleman scamming as skimming no skimming
1:38:15
going on. Anyway, I'll read the note from here. Thanks for the
1:38:19
1511 make good I hereby claim my first executive producer ship
1:38:25

Executive Producer a delight, hopefully by the Christmas time,
1:41:59
because we're doing a show on Christmas. And to double up.
1:42:04
We're doing a show on New Year's Day. What are we thinking? Who
1:42:10
else does this? Maybe there's no audience but we're still doing
1:42:15
it. We're doing it. And I feel that I feel good about doing it.
1:42:18
Because you know, I had to bow out for two shows. Now. We
1:42:22
didn't do repeats or anything lane like that. There were new
1:42:26
compilations of dynamite stuff. But yeah, I feel good about
1:42:29
giving people the extra value just at the end of the year. I
1:42:32
feel good about Yeah, I do. I do
1:42:34
too. I like to do it. And you know, it gets you out. You know,
1:42:37
it's especially when it's on Christmas. And it gets you out
1:42:40
of the family quagmire that's going on just harsh stuff. I
1:42:43
gotta do a show. You I was working on Christmas. Yeah,
1:42:46
that's what we do.
1:42:50
I Cory I can't help with cooking. I got to do a show.

1:42:58
But the show's over. And yeah, how long does it take the cook,
1:43:00
quarry plant and burn in Madison, Wisconsin. 200 bucks.
1:43:03
Thanks, dear John and Adam, a longtime listener, first time
1:43:06
donor, thank you for the value you bring to my life as a loyal
1:43:10
listener to the best podcast in the universe. No jingles no
1:43:13
karma, or a plenty and Berg in Sun Prairie is actually in Sun
1:43:18
Prairie, not Madison. And I want to thank him and everybody else
1:43:22
that came in with some producer chips. At this level. It makes
1:43:28
the show work. And there's only way we can get to show this fact
1:43:30
the only way this show can be done it with the kind of
1:43:32
material we present can't be done by any commercial
1:43:35
mechanism. You
1:43:36
know, they now have a new term, it's safety and suitability. So
1:43:40
it used to be brand safe, you know, the content has to be
1:43:42
brand safe now. It's safety and suitability. Not just safe. It's
1:43:46
if it's suitable. Now, what do you think advertising wise will
1:43:50
be slightly by the
1:43:51
way, by the way safe. From the other side of the fence. I like
1:43:55
it. Yeah. Yeah, safe and safety and suitable.
1:44:00
You know, you know, there's one advertiser that is safe and
1:44:02
suitable for the no agenda show.
1:44:05
And who might that be? Fleshlight is the
1:44:07
only one. I mean. Hey, now,
1:44:10
you know, the early days with Joe Rogan's as far as
1:44:13
advertising was,
1:44:14
I know, I was watching Kevin Smith. You know, the, you know,
1:44:19
Kevin Smith, the director, he had a director. Now he's the one
1:44:23
that told Joe years ago, you should get out I'm on. So I'm
1:44:27
very, very thankful to Kevin Smith. And I,
1:44:31
hey, I sent a note to Joe and I get it still have it in 2011,
1:44:38
begging him to put you on. And he sent me a note back. What are
1:44:41
you saying? Well, you know, can you come on in the meantime? And
1:44:44
I said I would if I can but then of course he's forgotten all
1:44:47
that. But yeah, we've all been pushing to get you on that show.
1:44:50
You're a natural for that show.
1:44:53
I don't know if I don't think there's a five a fifth or fifth
1:44:56
moment in there for me. I don't know. My
1:45:01
background but it'll be it'll be Hey, hey, how come you haven't
1:45:04
been on? I just like a Hollywood guy.
1:45:09
Anyway, thank you all very much. And welcome back people who skip
1:45:14
the donation segment, you morons, you miss some good
1:45:16
content you might want to go and check it out. deadstock don't
1:45:20
tell him don't tell him don't just go here. vorak.org/and a
1:45:27
thank you all for your time, talent and treasure for
1:45:29
producing episode 1512. Our formula is this. We go out. We
1:45:36
had people in the mouth
1:45:49
now I'm gonna remind myself about the ivermectin clip. This
1:45:54
is Dr. Chris Schumacher. He is a candidate avian. He is a member
1:46:00
of the College of Family Physicians of Canada Navia. So
1:46:04
he's, he's not a slouch. You know, I don't know if he's a
1:46:06
super duper guide. I don't know much about him. But I liked his
1:46:10
message a lot. And here it is. Important thing to realize is
1:46:13
that
1:46:14
North American science spent 15 years figuring out what to do
1:46:19
with the next COVID It was back 2000 to 2003, the original SARS
1:46:23
cov one occurred. And so all sorts of experiments went on to
1:46:28
determine what would be a useful response were something similar
1:46:32
to occur. And the research was done. It was research was all
1:46:36
done by 2015 2016 and DARPA da rpa, the American research arm
1:46:43
of the US military, it's specifically New and
1:46:46
specifically recommended and pass the information on to the
1:46:49
CDC. That ivermectin in particular was the absolute
1:46:55
number one product to be used in the event of a Corona virus
1:47:00
pandemic. It was fully known that ivermectin and certainly
1:47:04
hydroxychloroquine as well, were highly antiviral, and immune
1:47:10
modulatory. And those two things were the key to modulate the
1:47:14
immune response plus to the antiviral as well, those
1:47:18
elements were both totally proven in vitro and in vivo with
1:47:23
animals so that it was known. And of course, we knew it was
1:47:26
completely safe for humans, because these medications had
1:47:28
been used for 35 to 40 years in humans. And so that's what was
1:47:34
sitting there ready to be used at the next pandemic.
1:47:37
I gotta say, I believe in totally, this sounds so good day
1:47:41
to day. Oh, goodness, it's been so long since I've gotten Clip
1:47:44
of the Day. I don't even know where the button is anymore.
1:47:47
Thank you.
1:47:51
I know what I'm doing. That is a tremendous clip.
1:47:55
There's not diny in that tiny it's
1:47:57
Wow, there you go. You get Clip of the Day, then you blow it up
1:48:01
by saying diny Yay. Shall Emile
1:48:07
corroborate. Here's your here's your future. President Ronald de
1:48:12
Santos,
1:48:13
Senator Ron DeSantis. Called Out Big Pharma the focus COVID-19
1:48:17
vaccines. He wants the Florida Supreme Court to investigate any
1:48:21
and all wrongdoings Tampa Bay is Malik Rankin joins us now with
1:48:25
what's next. Malik Governor Ron DeSantis
1:48:28
is petitioning the Supreme Court to form a grand jury. This
1:48:31
announcement followed a roundtable discussion with the
1:48:34
Surgeon General DeSantis is also creating a public health
1:48:37
integrity committee led by the Surgeon General and a press
1:48:40
release from the governor the committee will assess federal
1:48:42
public health recommendations and tailor those guidelines to
1:48:46
Florida.
1:48:46
So other governors and I have talked about the need to have a
1:48:51
panel of experts who can counteract nonsense when it's
1:48:56
coming out of these institutions that are not going to just go
1:48:59
along with the flow and follow precooked narratives, but will
1:49:03
actually do evidence based analysis.
1:49:06
DeSantis says pharmaceutical companies refuse to release
1:49:09
patient level data for independent researchers.
1:49:13
DeSantis also says the adverse effects of the COVID 19 vaccine
1:49:16
has not been appropriately shared with patients and he
1:49:19
believes it's created a lack of public trust.
1:49:22
Yeah, now of course as you know, Roger Stone everybody's out
1:49:26
there saying, Man he's just doing that to to mess with Trump
1:49:33
was stolen stayed on Trump's side which is interesting
1:49:35
because everybody else is turned on him. I was watching a was
1:49:39
never that guy who is a CNBC guy that was on Trump's White House.
1:49:46
Larry Kudlow. He was on with Kellyanne Conway and he was just
1:49:49
turned him in Trump.
1:49:50
He's turn but just sticking with it. Sticking with the COVID for
1:49:54
a moment. Here's British Parliament MP Andrew Bridgen and
1:50:01
he corroborated the same thing happened in. In the UK, the
1:50:06
British Heart Foundation covered up research. Madam Deputy
1:50:10
Speaker, it's also been brought to my attention by with support
1:50:14
from a very reliable source. That one of these institutions
1:50:17
is covering clear data that reveals the mRNA vaccine
1:50:21
increased inflammation of the heart arteries. They are
1:50:24
covering this up in fear that they may lose funding from the
1:50:28
pharmaceutical industry. The leader of that cardiology
1:50:31
cardiology research department has a prominent leadership role
1:50:36
with the British Heart Foundation. And I'm very
1:50:39
disappointed to say that he has sent out non disclosure
1:50:42
agreements to his research team to ensure that this important
1:50:46
data never sees the light of day this speaker is, is an absolute
1:50:51
disgrace.
1:50:53
And that was just part of a 21 minute rant. It's really
1:50:59
got a couple of COVID clips here that are specifically in the
1:51:04
direction you're headed. But there's some just weird stuff
1:51:09
cropping up here and there, I'm gonna play the COVID weirdness
1:51:13
with vaccines in China,
1:51:15
China says it will allow a foreign vaccine to be used in
1:51:18
China. But there's a catch. Beijing said Friday it would let
1:51:22
German nationals living in China receive German vaccine violin
1:51:26
tech, this in exchange for Germany granting an import
1:51:30
permit to a Chinese vaccine, though that jab would only be
1:51:34
used on Chinese nationals living in Germany.
1:51:40
This row, this, I believe is part of that. This subtext that
1:51:44
we know about these the idea of creating these these vectors,
1:51:48
these disease vectors that target genetics, you know,
1:51:54
you're freaked out about this, you know,
1:51:56
I'm seeing more and more stories like this was just let me just
1:52:00
grab this for a second. Something about Indians where
1:52:05
was this can't find a sudden deaths explode in Germany? I
1:52:15
thought there was a stat a story somewhere about that Indians
1:52:18
were dying at some crazy rate unexpected which they thought
1:52:21
were from from either COVID or vaccines is very difficult to
1:52:26
figure out which it is.
1:52:27
Because you we don't get we do get the details. Of course. Of
1:52:30
course we don't. Let's go. Here's another clip. This is
1:52:33
interesting this. This is our future Chinese COVID tracking
1:52:39
tools.
1:52:41
After major protests in China, the regime appears to be
1:52:44
loosening some of its harsh COVID-19 measures, including the
1:52:48
use of one COVID tracking app. However, a new COVID outbreak is
1:52:52
spreading in the country. Here's entity's Tiffany Meyer with the
1:52:55
story,
1:52:56
a major contact tracing app in China is going offline. It marks
1:53:00
a big step and loosening COVID-19 restrictions, but it's
1:53:04
far from the only health tracking method used during the
1:53:07
pandemic. The app is called Mobile itinerary cart and
1:53:11
launched in February 2020. Almost immediately after the
1:53:15
pandemic broke out in Wuhan, China. Operating via
1:53:19
smartphones, the app can trace back where a phone owner has
1:53:23
been in the last seven to 14 days. When an app user enters an
1:53:27
area designated by authorities as posing high risk of
1:53:30
infection, the app will change the user status color from green
1:53:34
to yellow or red. Both of those colors limit the phone owners
1:53:38
access to public spaces and transportation. Other reports
1:53:42
say Chinese authorities manipulated the apps manually
1:53:46
changing the statuses of human rights activists to read to
1:53:49
block them from leaving their homes. This app has more than 1
1:53:54
billion users almost as many as China's population. Concerns
1:53:59
have also focused on data safety and privacy. As huge amounts of
1:54:03
data have been collected in recent years. Chinese
1:54:06
authorities said they would delete the data after the app
1:54:09
goes offline. Despite the shutdown a another major
1:54:12
tracking app is still being used the country's health code
1:54:16
scanning system, this app also functions on smartphones. They
1:54:21
use this the same three color status system. But instead users
1:54:24
self declare where they've been
1:54:26
man, they better hurry up because Elon is gonna take that
1:54:29
business. He's gonna have that business. Don't worry,
1:54:33
color. Listen, you know, we adapt we once we adopted that
1:54:37
stupid color system for the airports during the Bush
1:54:42
administration, it should have been a plague and I think we're
1:54:44
never going to get rid of it.
1:54:45
Here's the article rise in heart attacks amongst healthy young
1:54:49
Indians what's driving it? As many as 51% of people have one
1:54:54
or more individuals in their close network, who is from India
1:54:58
today, who have experienced heart or or brain stroke blood
1:55:01
clots, neurological complications, cancer
1:55:03
acceleration and other sudden medical conditions in the last
1:55:06
two years, what could be driving this? I have no idea. Next we
1:55:12
have such I read this sudden deaths explode in Germany.
1:55:19
Doctors are warning heart attacks spike this time of year.
1:55:22
It happens every year. Funny. I've been doing this show for
1:55:25
15. I don't remember a single report. But I guess it's true.
1:55:30
And then we have the pots. Then we have the oh wait. We do have
1:55:37
the pots. Yes, the pots. This is the pots. This is this is what
1:55:40
it's all about.
1:55:41
Well, a new study finds a link between COVID infection and a
1:55:44
debilitating heart condition.
1:55:46
The findings were actually published today in the journal
1:55:48
Nature cardiovascular research, and it corresponds with early
1:55:51
reports that COVID may actually trigger a disorder in the
1:55:54
nervous system. And BC news medical reporter Berkley
1:55:57
Lovelace joins us now, Berkeley's Great to have you
1:55:59
with us. First off, what exactly is this heart condition? And how
1:56:02
do people know they have it?
1:56:04
Yeah, so this was basically one of the early discoveries of
1:56:07
people with long COVID. So POTS is a condition of the nervous
1:56:11
system where people can have several symptoms such as rapid
1:56:14
heart rate, lightheadedness, chest pain, fatigue. And its
1:56:19
people can also sometimes confuse it with other things
1:56:22
such as anxiety, depression. And so because it's so confusing
1:56:26
about the symptoms, it can also take years for people to get
1:56:29
diagnosis.
1:56:30
Wow. So be aware of that heart condition. But here was what I
1:56:33
found really interesting about the study, it also found a
1:56:35
connection between mRNA vaccines for COVID and potential heart
1:56:40
conditions. So this is the second condition. We're talking
1:56:42
about those Pfizer and moderna vaccines. How concerned should
1:56:45
we be about this?
1:56:47
Oh, no. What are we going to do? I think you should debunk it.
1:56:51
Right. So they did find a link between the vaccines and this
1:56:54
condition, but it was to a much, much smaller degree than what we
1:56:57
see with infection. So the researcher said the odds of
1:57:01
getting pods is about five times greater with a colon infection
1:57:05
than with vaccination time.
1:57:12
To get sick from, you'd be more likely to get this heart
1:57:15
condition than if you get a vaccine which could prevent you
1:57:17
from serious vaccine. Correct.
1:57:20
And so yeah, experts say the best way to protect yourself is
1:57:23
to get vaccinated including developing pots just don't get
1:57:26
pots
1:57:27
get boosted. There's
1:57:28
a question unanswered question that journalists should have
1:57:30
asked. Yeah, you know what it is i I know what it is, which is,
1:57:36
okay. Now, when we're discussing this, does this include people
1:57:41
who had COVID but also had the shot but God COVID after the
1:57:45
after they got the shots, maybe shots and boosted? Did you? Did
1:57:49
you track people that had one shot and then this dis disease
1:57:54
if they had COVID? Or if they had like all their shots and
1:57:57
boosted twice and then they got COVID? Was that included with
1:58:02
those people included in the study? Or it's just people? Or
1:58:05
was it just people just people that never had a vaccine ever?
1:58:10
And got COVID?
1:58:11
No, they did track this and they saw the people who had COVID and
1:58:15
got boosted developed winter vagina, there was nothing
1:58:18
nothing with pots. Pots stands for Postural Orthostatic
1:58:26
Tachycardia Syndrome. And it can also be confused with anxiety.
1:58:36
Come with like I do with plush jeweler.
1:58:39
I don't I'm just telling you this. You are the man. The whole
1:58:43
thing.
1:58:44
There was a I've had the last newsletter which had was mostly
1:58:49
memes. It was a collection of memes. I had one in there it
1:58:52
says scientists now say that getting the flu shot will
1:58:56
prevent heart attacks.
1:58:58
Yeah, isn't that beautiful? And even ace, but you know, this
1:59:02
heart attack thing, which is now we know it's very normal for
1:59:07
people to for heart attacks a spike this time of year. We do
1:59:13
have a lot of Indians. You know, it's not really our problem
1:59:17
because we know in this case, we're in Melbourne, but because
1:59:20
it's so normal and this happens all the time we've decided to up
1:59:23
our game in down under a life
1:59:25
saving machine is now within walking distance for every
1:59:28
resident in reservoir.
1:59:30
Every home is now within 400 metres of a defibrillator. And
1:59:34
over 3000 people have been trained in CPR.
1:59:37
27 defibrillators have been rolled out at homes around the
1:59:41
suburb, transforming the fifth deadliest area for cardiac
1:59:45
arrest into the safest
1:59:47
sudden cardiac arrest, effect and impact almost anybody. It
1:59:52
doesn't matter. It's not about age, it's not about gender. It
1:59:55
is simply a killer across the board
1:59:58
over 6500 100 Sudden cardiac arrests occur in Victoria each
2:00:03
year. 80% happen in the home, CPR within the first six minutes
2:00:08
is crucial. And coupled with a defibrillator. It increases
2:00:12
survival rates to over 50%. Just 11 months into the Australian
2:00:20
first trial, it's already saved a man's life St. John's are in
2:00:24
the process of selecting the next area to benefit from the
2:00:28
program. But they are calling on the Andrews government to pitch
2:00:32
in and provide funding to roll it out around the state.
2:00:36
And it's gonna be great in Australia. You got
2:00:39
defibrillators everywhere. You got to show your ID to get on
2:00:43
Twitter. Well done, people. Well done.
2:00:48
So my last COVID clip is actually more about flu. I just
2:00:52
thought this was interesting. Now this is a long is the
2:00:54
Tamiflu story. This is a long was actually a long report. They
2:00:58
want two or three or four or five minutes talking about
2:01:00
shortages of Tamiflu, Tamiflu is under attack by the way as it
2:01:04
because it works because it works. It's no good. But that's
2:01:09
not what the reports about sorry. This is what the reports
2:01:13
about is about the shortage is starting to show up because
2:01:16
there's all kinds of like and I went to the pharmacy and looked
2:01:20
and there was there is a shortage of children's Tylenol
2:01:23
for sure there's hardly any around and it is a bull crap
2:01:27
story. But there's an interesting little tidbit to the
2:01:29
story in terms of reporting. And I just thought it was stood out
2:01:33
like a sore thumb at least to me and being played I'll tell you
2:01:35
what it is afterwards
2:01:36
at West marine pharmacy in Point Reyes station pharmacist Gianna
2:01:41
Byron has almost run out of children's liquid Tylenol.
2:01:51
She's also having trouble restocking her supply of
2:01:54
Tamiflu, but leaning antiviral prescription medication to fight
2:01:58
the flu. A problem pharmacies across the country are
2:02:01
experiencing in the midst of a worsening flu season.
2:02:04
Maybe two three weeks ago just boom just kind of exploded.
2:02:08
Her supply of Tamiflu ran out two weeks ago,
2:02:11
we've run out of it. And we can even replace it by purchasing
2:02:15
more from the wholesalers because they're also out
2:02:18
Tamiflu isn't the only antiviral medication that can fight the
2:02:21
flu. And Marin County's deputy health officer said pharmacies
2:02:25
may have an easier time right now getting alternative
2:02:28
medications to fight the flu. According in Greenbrae, Mo das
2:02:31
KTVU Fox two news.
2:02:34
Okay, what's doing
2:02:36
anything to you stand out like a sore thumb? What's the
2:02:41
alternatives? brand name?
2:02:43
You're right. I was gonna. I was very curious what that was. They
2:02:46
didn't give you the alternatives.
2:02:48
Well, there isn't. It's not even plural. The alternative is to
2:02:53
Tamiflu is Relenza. That's right. I should have known that.
2:02:57
And Relenza is a is probably better. It's also more
2:03:01
expensive. But it's probably better because it's something
2:03:04
you just you breathe it in. And instead of taking a pill, and
2:03:09
it's as good or better and some people in the early days of bird
2:03:13
flu, fear. It's the one thing you can use against bird flu.
2:03:18
Tamiflu doesn't seem to be effective, but Relenza is or
2:03:21
lenses the product you want. But they go out of their way not to
2:03:24
mention it. And I've noted and Relenza has been commonly sigh
2:03:30
You know, it's been marginalized since the get go that's never
2:03:34
mentioned the brand name.
2:03:35
It's that's a Glaxo SmithKline Gladbach
2:03:38
GlaxoSmithKline. And the other one is Roche,
2:03:41
yes, yes, yes. Yes.
2:03:44
So I just to me, it was like, why don't you mention relented
2:03:48
they and you'll never hear the word I don't think I've ever
2:03:51
heard on broadcast. Any of these networks. I've
2:03:54
only heard it from you on this on this podcast. You mentioned
2:03:57
Relenza and Tamiflu, and you've been a big believer in it, and
2:04:00
you're still with us. So this is good. It works great. Now one of
2:04:04
our producers, who is an absolute insider in the
2:04:10
vaccination world has come to me in complete anonymity. And there
2:04:18
is now some evidence that there are two lipids, these are the
2:04:24
Nano lipids. This is the stuff that the Pfizer vaccine, right
2:04:28
uses to transport their little spiky he's being very simplistic
2:04:33
to have these lipids were not approved for human use, or have
2:04:38
not been approved for human use yet. Maybe that's a better way
2:04:40
of putting it because these lipids are not fully soluble in
2:04:45
the human body. So they begin to accumulate inside the liver, and
2:04:51
they can cause inflammation, and they respond to foreign
2:04:56
nanoparticles. And this is a brewing scandal All I don't know
2:05:01
if it'll ever come out but to have two non Opinio not human
2:05:05
approved lipids used in the vaccine. This quite egregious.
2:05:10
Maybe it would it what's accounting for the clots?
2:05:13
Yeah,
2:05:15
who knows but what else what? Who
2:05:17
knows what. Now, last clip for me on this topic. We are going
2:05:22
into the into the season. And by the way, this flu thing with
2:05:27
friends of ours. I might note that the that the friends who
2:05:30
have this have been jabbed and or boosted. They're very sick.
2:05:34
They're like it's like a week sick in bed moaning and groaning
2:05:38
and that is flu.
2:05:41
So they get a flu shot.
2:05:44
I should ask I should follow up they didn't ask. So usually if
2:05:50
the people that are all jacked up with COVID shots usually get
2:05:53
them to get a
2:05:54
shot as well. Yeah, I'll ask I'll check. So this is UNICEF,
2:05:58
United Nations. This is the the outfit that likes to likes to
2:06:02
protect the children are sketchy at best. They've done. They've
2:06:09
done a propaganda video for children. This really meant to
2:06:14
tug at your heartstrings and get your child to talk to you about
2:06:18
about the future of the COVID vaccine. And really how bad you
2:06:21
adult screwed it all up. You've actually killed us so many
2:06:24
people unnecessarily so let's not do that again this year
2:06:26
people.
2:06:29
In 2020, scientists developed life saving COVID-19 vaccines in
2:06:34
record breaking time. It was miraculous, to save the lives of
2:06:40
my parents and grandparents. In just a few months, nearly
2:06:43
everybody in my country got the vaccine. I lost my mother, right
2:06:49
at the start of the pandemic. So many doctors and nurses got
2:06:53
sick. school closed down. But then came vaccine who said Life
2:06:59
will return to your boss, you stood our hope. And you promised
2:07:04
you wouldn't stop there. You said you'd help other countries.
2:07:08
You promised to share vaccines with the whole world to make
2:07:12
sure it ended everywhere for everyone. But it took too long,
2:07:18
fought up supplies and held them back. Just in case he had people
2:07:24
in other countries suffer. Teachers died. You let the virus
2:07:31
carry on going round and round and round changed into even more
2:07:36
dangerous schools. Life kept getting turned upside down. For
2:07:50
all of us. Things could have worked out differently. You knew
2:07:56
that no one is safe until everyone is safe.
2:08:11
That's the end of it. All right, let's end this bunch of
2:08:14
statistics.
2:08:16
It's just substituted the word dead for safe.
2:08:21
Exactly. Is it's really it's
2:08:24
not everyone is safe until not anyone is safe. And everyone's
2:08:29
until everyone is dead.
2:08:34
By demonstration, we making the at home COVID tests available
2:08:37
free again this winter blue marble.
2:08:40
Another batch of them. So I've gotten I've gotten so many COVID
2:08:44
tests. So I've gotten the
2:08:45
but you don't take them you just you're just hoarding them,
2:08:48
right? You're collecting? No, I'm passing them out to the kids
2:08:50
don't get these Jake kids that come from the government who
2:08:53
knows what they're done with them?
2:08:54
exists already too late. So so the this last batch, so I got an
2:09:01
original for I think a pack of four from over the mail.
2:09:04
Remember, they get just a note in the mail, boom, you get some.
2:09:07
So I got those and then I went to get a prescription filled
2:09:11
early on. You want some free COVID tests, and they're free.
2:09:15
So yeah, so they gave me like four. And so then I go in there
2:09:19
again again a few weeks ago to to refill something. And there's
2:09:24
a sign saying make sure to ask for your free COVID test. And if
2:09:27
there's a sign that says free anything JCD is right at the
2:09:30
front of the line.
2:09:32
You got that right. And so I say what's what's with this? I said
2:09:38
he says oh yeah, let me look it up and it looks at my you know,
2:09:40
my insurance. It says, Oh yeah, you're eligible. So I'll pack
2:09:44
them up and you get them to pick him up this week. is eight.
2:09:48
Did he not blocks did he not accept tests when he looks you
2:09:52
up? Didn't you recommend you get a COVID shot and a flu shot? Now
2:09:55
what kind of system is that? Where's the cross deny?
2:09:58
Blender on there? Somebody's making mistake. But the point is
2:10:02
that I guess just by the huge box of these things, so I did
2:10:07
just who's paying for this? You are? Well, then I'm getting
2:10:12
them.
2:10:13
Yeah, I know. We have been looking at a lot of different
2:10:20
accidents in traffic, not just traffic on roads, but traffic in
2:10:25
the air. This had to be addressed. And the American
2:10:30
Journal of Medicine has addressed it in a in a study
2:10:34
here in which they did, they did use 11,270,763 individuals, and
2:10:43
they've concluded COVID vaccine hesitancy is a reflection of a
2:10:49
psychology that probably contributes to traffic safety.
2:10:55
They tested whether COVID vaccination was associated with
2:10:58
the risks of a traffic crash and what came back was No, no, it's
2:11:01
only those who are hesitant who have crashes.
2:11:05
Yeah, nobody else crashes.
2:11:06
I mean, this is and it's, you read through this, like, I don't
2:11:11
understand how they can even do this. To lunacy, the DAT these
2:11:15
data suggest that COVID vaccine hesitancy is associated with
2:11:20
significant increased risks of a traffic crash. I'm speechless.
2:11:28
Yeah, this was also in the newsletter. People don't
2:11:32
subscribe. They should.
2:11:33
I don't know why they don't. You can subscribe from every show
2:11:36
notes page. There's a link right there.
2:11:38
I don't know. I just beyond me. You know, you asking for money
2:11:42
too much. You know,
2:11:43
we talked about the catastrophic contagion supposed to hit in
2:11:47
2025 when they did the tabletop exercise for and the one guy
2:11:50
that stuck out as a sore thumb was Tom Dashiell. And one of our
2:11:54
producers pointed out, Dashiell was also the guy that received
2:11:59
the anthrax that was mailed after 911. I just thought that
2:12:03
was an interesting.
2:12:06
Connection is
2:12:08
he's a stooge. That's that's the that's the implied connection.
2:12:12
That doesn't mean anything.
2:12:14
It's what it is. It really is a stooge anyway, but interesting.
2:12:19
All right. Well, I have a couple of
2:12:23
before you go away, I have some COVID stuff to back up. You're
2:12:26
okay to backup your thesis of the platform.
2:12:33
mRNA is platform. Yeah, you want to just reiterate
2:12:36
that it'd be ditched as they got to ditch this platform. I just
2:12:39
saying
2:12:40
what do you mean they have to ditch it? They're expanding it.
2:12:42
They're expanding. They know this
2:12:43
is a huge blunder. They're trying to kill us. This is not
2:12:46
gonna work. But But go ahead. Go ahead.
2:12:49
Well, tonight there's promising cancer patients about a possible
2:12:53
melanoma vaccine made by Maderna and Merck, it uses mRNA
2:12:58
technology which was used to make those COVID vaccines.
2:13:01
Earnest says a small study showed the cancer shot and
2:13:03
immunotherapy drug combination significantly lowered patient's
2:13:07
risk of relapse or death. A larger study is planned for next
2:13:11
year.
2:13:12
There are those mRNA vaccines oh yeah group by beta is more
2:13:16
British teenagers now cancer free thanks to a new treatment
2:13:19
being described as revolutionary. 13 year old
2:13:21
Alyssa had exhausted all traditional options to battle
2:13:24
her leukemia, including a bone marrow transplant. That's when
2:13:27
she enrolled in a clinic trial, a clinical trial using a new
2:13:30
gene editing technology called base editing. When doctors use
2:13:34
healthy altered cells to kill cancerous T cells Ulisses cancer
2:13:38
was gone in six months, scientists hoped to use the same
2:13:40
technique for other diseases
2:13:42
such a huge breakthrough
2:13:43
such a huge breakthrough it's almost like fusion ignition such
2:13:47
a huge breakthrough.
2:13:50
You know if if this was actually a huge breakthrough, it would be
2:13:53
bigger news than it is yeah. This is a another experiment
2:13:59
they're going to conduct on the American public's or the world
2:14:02
public.
2:14:03
Yeah. I fear you are correct.
2:14:07
Yeah, this may be the second day maybe there's going to be two or
2:14:11
three of these says I mean, they're thinking about doing the
2:14:14
mRNA for the flu. Oh sure. And they're gonna roll that out and
2:14:19
this cancer thing which is really a stretch this is going
2:14:23
to be well you know, we'll be here watching mask up
2:14:34
It's so pathetic. We're going through the same cycle
2:14:37
everyone's forgotten everything. And there'll be the same same
2:14:41
old same old
2:14:42
I do have to Ukraine clips. Or if you want to wait I have a
2:14:48
What's wrong with with what's wrong with podcasting?
2:14:51
Oh, yeah, let's do it. Let's do well. Yeah, let's do that. Let's
2:14:54
do it. And then you can then you create whatever you go do so
2:14:58
so you got me triggered on two This pre press thing. Oh, good.
2:15:03
So I go look it over and I'm seeing it and who are these
2:15:06
writers and this is one writer, Katherine cat. And she has a
2:15:11
podcast. And I'm doing let's see what kind of person this is. And
2:15:16
this is this podcast is called feminine chaos.
2:15:20
Oh, wow, can we get the domain name?
2:15:23
It's got a picture of a goat with a, like a like a devilish
2:15:27
goat with a unicorn spikes sticking out of its head. And I
2:15:33
just want to play two clips from this. This is the kind of it's
2:15:36
just another one of those podcasts. I've described these
2:15:39
to you before. I think original discussion was giggling dipshits
2:15:45
as a as a category it's not it's not meant to be pejorative, it's
2:15:50
just a category it is what it is. It's a category of
2:15:54
podcasting. Which is to me something wrong because it's a
2:15:59
What's wrong with these podcasts and not I'm not what's wrong
2:16:01
with these podcasts, which is a podcast which is quite good by
2:16:05
the way, you can go check it out. This is what's wrong with
2:16:08
podcasting. And that's these categories. This listen to clip
2:16:12
one here. This is the way the podcast begins.
2:16:15
Hello, this is Cat This is Phoebe. Welcome to feminine
2:16:19
chaos Why are you
2:16:24
already laughing?
2:16:25
What's there not a dog growling?
2:16:28
Oh, I think you heard the cat the cat is purring
2:16:29
or a cat purring. Sorry. I just I was excited by the early
2:16:34
arrival of an animal on the scene. Not counting the one I'm
2:16:38
currently petting is lying here next to me sweetly.
2:16:41
Oh, well, I think the rescue and my cat is purring because he's
2:16:46
very excited. He's finally gotten comfortable enough in his
2:16:51
identity and in our relationship to form a sexual attraction to
2:16:56
me, because he is demisexual and also a goddamn pervert because
2:17:03
we're not the same species. How's that for an opening?
2:17:10
That's an opening all right.
2:17:12
Please tell me this. This has no advertisements and has not been
2:17:16
bought by Spotify
2:17:19
so far.
2:17:21
Because this has smash hit written all over it for those
2:17:24
guys.
2:17:25
Now, this cat person is one of their journalists or at the free
2:17:30
press and she's a specialist in some things like Demi sexuality.
2:17:34
She wrote an essay what is Demi sexuality,
2:17:37
how you look it up? You look it up. I don't have time to go into
2:17:40
it. But I do have time to play another clip from another one of
2:17:44
their podcasts. Where they again just talking about the cat to an
2:17:49
extreme and it's just a short 21 seconds of what more of the same
2:17:55
of this sort of podcast that I really don't like.
2:18:00
I was thinking like, how can we segue into this? You know,
2:18:02
speaking of people.
2:18:05
Yeah, yeah,
2:18:06
no same. Especially this cat who is again, rumbling in the
2:18:10
microphone. Their tongues are like sandpaper. I don't even
2:18:14
want to engage with that. You know, I feel like I'm doing him
2:18:17
a favor by letting him like me.
2:18:21
This is exact This is okay, what's wrong with these
2:18:24
podcasts? This is how women of this age speak. I have some of
2:18:27
them in my life. I've heard them. They talk this way and
2:18:32
it's very hilarious. And if we were talking like that, like oh,
2:18:36
yeah, I liked the guy like the dog blow me
2:18:44
crazy. Am I wrong?
2:18:50
It's beyond me. But I'm just pointing out their worries. I
2:18:52
even found this podcast even though I was looking for an ISO
2:18:56
and I couldn't even come up with what is it? Maybe the licking
2:18:58
part? Yeah, but it was because this is one of the journalists
2:19:04
on this free press operation if it's going to maybe look at some
2:19:07
of the other ones to see if they all got everyone has a podcast.
2:19:11
So apologies to the what's wrong with the podcast guys. This is
2:19:15
what's wrong with podcasting. Yes, okay. It's only short hits.
2:19:22
So there you go.
2:19:22
Well, these were two dynamite hits. Thank you very much.
2:19:26
Appreciate now let's pray let's go to Ukraine. Yeah,
2:19:32
so Ukraine the latest thing is he's just unbelievable. These
2:19:36
Patriot missiles story. Let's play this.
2:19:39
Oh, yeah, she's this is not
2:19:41
the US may be sending a battery of Patriot missiles to Ukraine.
2:19:45
It comes after Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky
2:19:48
recently put pressure on Western leaders to provide more advanced
2:19:52
weapons to counter Russian air attacks.
2:19:54
We will look at a full spectrum of security assistance and
2:19:58
defensive capabilities that are available within our common
2:20:01
inventories. When we consider Ukraine's needs, we continue to
2:20:05
consult and advise our Ukrainian partners on how best to
2:20:09
integrate their air defense systems.
2:20:12
According to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, the
2:20:15
announcement will likely follow later this week. The plan has
2:20:18
not yet been publicly announced because the decision has not
2:20:22
been finalized. If approved, the Patriot would be the most
2:20:25
advanced surface to air missile system yet provided to Ukraine
2:20:28
by the West.
2:20:30
I have two short reports on this kind of just roll these out
2:20:33
since please.
2:20:36
I think it's unconscionable that we're sending this sort of
2:20:38
weaponry over there. It's just prolonging the war. I think the
2:20:42
idea is to get it make it bigger.
2:20:45
No, I Yeah. I mean, the to me the idea is we need to have some
2:20:52
kind of new shield type weapons and we need to develop them and
2:20:57
Iron Dome. Yes, and we need some money for that and we just want
2:21:00
new gear. So we need to of course ship all the all the crap
2:21:05
off to Ukraine. And that's what's happened
2:21:07
and this could be a big development in the war in
2:21:09
Ukraine. CBS News has learned the Pentagon is preparing a plan
2:21:12
to send Patriot air defense missiles to Ukraine. The
2:21:16
Ukrainians have been pleading for more help to defend
2:21:18
themselves against Russian rockets. White House approval
2:21:21
could come as soon as this week.
2:21:24
That is CBS News ABC
2:21:26
following breaking news overseas explosions rocking Ukraine's
2:21:29
capital. Drone strikes reportedly hit two
2:21:32
administrative buildings in downtown Kyiv. Local officials
2:21:35
say there were Iranian drones used by Russia but no immediate
2:21:39
word on casualties. Meanwhile, Sources say President Biden is
2:21:42
poised to approve a plan sending long range Patriot missile
2:21:46
systems to Ukraine to fend off Russian strikes. They wouldn't
2:21:48
be the most sophisticated weapons The Pentagon has
2:21:51
provided for
2:21:51
the war. No, no the most yes provided the most sophisticated
2:21:55
defense weapons will be now created with the money and
2:21:58
Europe just spent 18 billion Do we have another another couple
2:22:02
billion and check this out. French social media has erupted
2:22:09
as store clerk on Avenue Montaigne reports Zelinsky his
2:22:14
wife who was in in Perry to get her hair done and to hang out
2:22:19
with McCrone spent 40,000 pounds worth of euros worth of
2:22:24
Christmas shopping in Paris by the French are outraged
2:22:32
a bit Dr. I'm outraged
2:22:34
40,000 This is Oh man
2:22:38
that's a hell of a Christmas Yeah, right. I'm I'm you spent
2:22:43
40,000 Christmas shopping in Paris. It's
2:22:46
been a while it's been a while.
2:22:49
So here's the second clip which has been which makes me think
2:22:51
they're trying to expand this war a little bit is the Bella
2:22:56
Rusev involvement. Potentially
2:22:59
Belarus remains noncommittal about getting involved in the
2:23:02
war in neighboring Ukraine. But the country appears to be
2:23:05
conducting joint military training with Russia. Moscow
2:23:08
says the exercise is carried out quote day and night. Russia's
2:23:12
Defense Ministry published the latest video. The footage shows
2:23:16
tanks navigating through a woodland in Belarus. The
2:23:19
soldiers set up temporary bridges and conduct explosive
2:23:23
drills. One day before the video came out Belarus announced an
2:23:26
emergency military inspection. It involves setting up readiness
2:23:30
in the south of the country. Belarus has said it won't join
2:23:33
Russia's attack in Ukraine. But on February 24 hours, the
2:23:37
president allowed Russian troops to push into Ukraine from
2:23:40
Belarus in territory and in October he ordered domestic
2:23:44
forces to deploy with Russia near the Ukrainian border.
2:23:47
Strategy analysts say there is a possibility that Belarus could
2:23:51
intervene from the north but that it would amount to a
2:23:54
distraction for Ukraine Yeah,
2:23:58
word guy confused I don't know what he's talking about
2:24:01
understand it either way. What's the strategic
2:24:05
what's the distraction will as a distraction or attacking you
2:24:08
from Bella Russa me book? Because it would distraction
2:24:11
from what I guess the dimebon Now
2:24:13
I have to look at the map for a second. Let me just see where
2:24:16
Belarus is in relation to all this stuff. There's got to be we
2:24:21
got to overlay a pipeline or something on top of this what's
2:24:24
going on? It's always the same. It's always the same. So Bella
2:24:28
rousse. Let me see. You know that everyone except Google Now
2:24:34
is working on an open mapping system. They just announced is
2:24:41
like the open Linux Foundation which of course is owned by
2:24:44
Microsoft da. They are now working with a working with meta
2:24:50
Microsoft, Amazon Web Services TomTom are launching overture
2:24:55
maps foundation to develop interoperable open map data to
2:25:00
they're trying to do something against Google. Anyway. So now
2:25:03
I'm looking at Belrose. So
2:25:04
I'd like Google has been driving those little devices around. I
2:25:09
see him all the time in the Bay Area. Way mo they say that's
2:25:13
what the logo is is way, way Mo. They're everywhere. And the
2:2
