Thursday, January 19 2023. This is your award winning
0:07
accumulation media assassination episode 1522
0:10
This is no agenda,
0:13
deconstructing Davos and broadcasting live from the heart
0:17
of the Texas new country here in February to number six in the
0:19
morning everybody I'm Adam curry
0:21
in from Northern Silicon Valley where we've got the king tide.
0:26
king tide. I'm Jesse DeVore actually kill
0:32
the king tide is that word dead fish roll up on the beach or
0:35
what is the king tide again?
0:36
king tides when everything's lined up the moon, the sun,
0:39
everything in between him? Raise the tide seven feet.
0:43
Oh, we're all gonna die.
0:46
What happens if
0:48
the tide rises? Seven feet
0:51
is whatever the Yeah, that's that's that's pretty high as
0:55
well. I'm looking at this at the mud flats. Yes. As one does.
1:00
Yes. And the mud flats are filled with water.
1:04
Okay, so there's it's high tide.
1:06
It's super high, but it's super high tide king tide king called
1:10
king tide. Look it up.
1:12
So do we have that here? Or is only where you are?
1:14
It's everywhere. worldwide phenomenon. Oh, oh,
1:18
no wonder they're doing all this climate change stuff in Davos.
1:21
Perfect, perfect. Time to do it to king tide is where you want
1:24
to do it. I have been enjoying Davos covered so much. Oh, good.
1:29
Because I haven't. You haven't you haven't been enjoying it or
1:32
you haven't been looking at it?
1:33
I am. I don't care about oh, it's
1:36
genius. There's so much goodness happening. This. I mean, it is
1:41
really lovely.
1:42
But I'm sure you have a report for us. I'm sure that there's
1:46
some clips that are dynamite.
1:47
Yeah. But before we even go there, we have a very sad, we
1:51
have sad news to share for the show. Oh, yeah. We're losing one
1:57
of our favorite subjects.
2:00
Who Yes.
2:02
And a surprise announced by Yang from New Zealand Prime Minister
2:05
Jacinda Ardern. She's stepping down she became a global icon.
2:09
But her popularity took a turn last year due to COVID
2:11
restrictions and inflation. She was the world's youngest female
2:15
leader in 2017 at age 37, and gave birth while in office. But
2:19
she says now it's time for someone new.
2:22
But I'm not leaving because it was had had that been the case,
2:27
I probably would have departed two months into the job. I know
2:31
what this job takes. And I know that I no longer have enough in
2:35
the tank to do it justice.
2:37
She's got one more month on the job.
2:40
She doesn't have enough in the tank. I don't even know what
2:42
that means. I don't have enough in the tank to do the job. But
2:45
But what I what is so unfortunate is they didn't play
2:48
her choking up. This is this is a piece of the original audio,
2:53
but also one of the more challenging, you cannot and
2:56
should not do it unless you have a full tank plus a bit in
3:01
reserve for those unexpected challenges. This summer I had
3:06
hoped to find a way to prepare not just for another year, but
3:11
another term because that is what this year requires. I have
3:16
not been able to do that
3:22
concern today I'm announcing that I will not be seeking
3:25
reelection in my term as Prime Minister will conclude no later
3:32
than the seventh
3:33
of February no man should quivering lip and everything. I
3:39
wonder
3:40
so that was that report they don't give the real reason she
3:43
quit.
3:44
Her tank is empty but doesn't have enough in the tank. That's
3:49
that's the report. She said it herself. You need a full tank.
3:53
And I don't have enough in my tank.
3:55
Well, I wish I could get to the recording of this but what
3:59
really happened?
4:01
Oh, we know we know what happened. She had a hot mic
4:04
incident right?
4:05
She had a hot mic incident. Where she cussed with with the
4:09
foulest mouth imaginable said
4:12
she said prick. That's all I think that's all she said was
4:16
it? She said fuck a couple of times. I think I thought it was
4:21
calling him a prick. The problem was she made a big point of
4:27
kindness. She was the kind of Prime Minister and she was going
4:31
to be kind and kind was was the watchword and so then she goes
4:36
off after this guy in a hot mic. And I guess the opposition shows
4:40
the opposition leader the opposition leader and I suppose
4:44
that
4:45
so you have to resign over that.
4:49
Day. We're going to pound her about it.
4:51
I think I think seeing her moved before this. I think she's got
4:56
something pretty cushy lined up. Now I'm sure She's thinking
5:01
she's got a think tank or you know, she'll definitely. I
5:05
wonder if she'll she won't go out to the World Economic Forum.
5:08
I don't think she's out there. But she was lined up. She'll
5:11
have something lined up. Can you hear thirsty Third Thursday? Can
5:14
you hear it? The third my th it's fixed.
5:18
Yeah, okay. It was fine before but it was
5:21
not fine before. Okay, thanks. Thanks for being happy for me.
5:27
I also mentioned this to horror was brought to us up and I said,
5:32
Because horror was got sick.
5:33
Yeah, he's got COVID again. COVID. He texted me yesterday to
5:38
laugh about it again. He's not but now he has fever. He's she
5:41
has chills.
5:43
No, he's in bad shape. It's
5:44
not good. No,
5:45
he did the show, though. The I heard even and I thought he did
5:49
a good job of covering up his sickness and he was uptempo
5:53
enough. And I talked, we talked about you because you're the
5:56
master of sounding good, no matter how you feel. And I made
6:02
the comment that if curry had no teeth, he could still pull it
6:08
off. He said, well, well, thanks. mine personally, isn't
6:16
that loose? But
6:18
all right. All right. I was just happy. Nevermind.
6:20
I'm glad you're happy for something that no one notices.
6:24
Just like
6:25
it's like when I hear a buzz. You know, if I hear a buzz
6:27
somewhere in the audio chain, no one hears it, but I hear it and
6:30
it's distracting. Yeah. Okay. Back to the back to Davos. We
6:34
had it was really fantastic that everybody came out. Everybody
6:40
got a shot somewhere I got a chance to say something. Let me
6:45
see up first we had of course, as the Lensky his wife because
6:50
you know the vlog Volodymyr had to had to video conference in to
6:54
play for more more weaponry. But now Now she she gets to go to
6:58
top top of the bill. By the way, right off the bat, he or she is
7:02
the first lady of Ukraine.
7:05
You're all united by the fact that you are really very
7:09
influential early adopters. There's also something that
7:13
separates you are some NFC on that is that not all of you are
7:19
using this influence, which has some crossover. Or sometimes you
7:23
use it in a way, that device even more when we talk about
7:26
energy security, we mean that no child in the world should have
7:29
to do their homework by candlelight, like children in
7:32
Ukraine are doing that no doctor would have to perform surgeries
7:36
in the light of flashlights as recently in cave on leaf excites
7:41
you. At some point, we have to pronounce an end to this for me,
7:45
it's so that our people can return home scattered around the
7:49
world right now. So that our fathers or mothers, sons and
7:53
daughters can return from the frontlines.
7:55
Very, very passionate plea. Of course, everybody responded very
7:58
well to this. But the but the real theme this year is climate
8:03
change, and we're all going to die. And John Kerry watermelon
8:08
head is back on the scene. Typically we don't play clips
8:11
from from John Kerry, this is a short one. But it really gets to
8:15
the heart of who John Kerry is.
8:17
And when you stop and think about it, it's pretty
8:19
extraordinary that we select group of human beings because of
8:27
whatever touched us at some point in our lives, are able to
8:31
sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving
8:36
the planet. I mean, it's so almost Extra Terrestrial to
8:40
think about, quote saving the planet. And if you said that to
8:44
most people, most people they think you're just a crazy tree
8:47
hugging lefties liberal, you know, do good or whatever. And
8:51
there's no relationship, but really that's where we are.
8:57
He's part of the select few who were touched. Touched early on.
9:01
Yeah. Touched I think just a good word for touched.
9:05
Yes, we were touched in it is us. We are the chosen ones to do
9:09
this. The Chosen Ones. Big keynote opening keynote by oh,
9:16
by the way, you know, there was there was rumors just before
9:19
everything started that George Soros and Klaus Schwab would not
9:25
be appearing this year because of health concerns or something
9:29
and it was all over Twitter went like fire. literally five
9:33
minutes later, Klaus Schwab is on stage it was it was
9:36
phenomenal. Well done Twitter. Good to go. So we had the main
9:42
keynote from our girl Queen Ursula. And she made it very
9:46
clear about what the what the agenda is. As she is she's
9:51
actually quite quite pissed. And this was really part of the
9:55
whole discussion as well as that seems like America and even
10:00
China are screwing with her her her Green Deal. And she does not
10:06
like it,
10:06
we Europeans have a plan, a Green Deal industrial plan, our
10:15
plan to make Europe the home of clean tech, and industrial
10:21
innovation. On the road to net zero. Our Green Deal industrial
10:26
plan will be covering four different pillars, the
10:31
regulatory environment, financing, skills, and trade.
10:38
The first pillar is about speed and access, we need to recreate
10:42
a regulatory environment that allows us to scale up fast, and
10:47
to create conducive conditions for sectors crucial to reach the
10:52
net zero goal that we've set ourselves. This includes, for
10:56
example, wind, heat pumps, solar clean hydrogen storage and other
11:00
topics, which demand is boosted by our next gen
11:05
shoot. So these are the four pillars. And when it comes to
11:08
climate change,
11:09
net zero goals that we've set ourselves. This includes, for
11:13
example, wind, heat pumps, heat
11:15
pumps, again,
11:16
they keep on keep I told you heat pumps, this is heat pumps,
11:19
staying heat pumps,
11:21
because you can't have your your heat created by gas, it has to
11:25
be electricity. So you know, you reverse the refrigeration
11:29
process, you get your heat pump. Yeah, it's the second thing she
11:32
mentioned. So it's going to be big. I'm very bullish on heat
11:35
pumps. Now back to her anger about the USA, we're not we're
11:38
not really playing fair,
11:40
the United States are our friends and our partners very
11:43
clear. And it's very good, that we are all now investing heavily
11:48
in the green transition. Important is if we look at Green
11:52
Tech, the tech industry is that we have a level playing field, I
11:57
think we should compete on content on quality, but not on
12:01
subsidies. If such subsidies are necessary to boost the
12:06
development of the clean tech industry, then we should do it
12:10
as a joint effort, which we're just working on as European
12:13
Union with our American friends. And so does that leave China as
12:16
the main competitor in this area? Indeed, we want to work
12:20
with China on fighting climate change. But it needs to be a
12:25
work where fairness and a level playing field is provided. And
12:30
we see that China is massively subsidizing in a hidden way, its
12:35
industries, while it is not giving access to the market, to
12:39
European companies, and that can be that is not acceptable. So
12:42
competition is good. Trade is good. But it has to be fair and
12:46
a level playing field.
12:47
The Europeans are really angry because the inflation Reduction
12:51
Act put a whole bunch of subsidies for really American
12:55
manufacturers, even the car subsidies, they don't apply to
12:59
anything built in Europe, it has to have American parts and so
13:03
they're all bent out of shape that we just like China are
13:06
subsidizing this phony baloney deal. And they don't want to do
13:11
that. Like why do we don't want to subsidize everything? So
13:15
that's one of the main themes people a little bit angry about
13:18
us, us being the United States. I know. But luckily, they still
13:23
have, you know, the true diehards out there. The climate
13:26
change, guys, the researchers, this is a great guy, his name is
13:30
Johan rock strim. And he's wearing a north face, you know,
13:34
like red polar outfit. Like he's ready to go off and save some
13:40
polar bears himself. And he had such a cool word salad. I think
13:44
this is a Deutsche Avella,
13:45
he'll on the global risk part of the World Economic Forum climate
13:49
risk is on top of the agenda. How bad is the situation? How
13:53
bad
13:53
is the situation?
13:54
The situation is really worrying. We are at 1.2 degrees
13:58
Celsius warming already today is the warmest today. And within
14:03
the next 10 years, we may reach 1.5 degrees Celsius and
14:06
scientifically with today's show, clearly, that's a physical
14:10
limit go beyond it. And we risk triggering many tipping points
14:13
to Greenland Ice Sheet
14:14
many tipping points. Not just one many tipping points.
14:19
What do you how many tipping points do you need many
14:21
you need many otherwise nothing happened. Clearly.
14:24
That's a physical limit go beyond it and we risk triggering
14:27
many tipping points. What is clearly business what is clear,
14:31
and within the next 10 years we may reach 1.5 degrees Celsius
14:35
and scientifically we today show clearly. That's a physical limit
14:38
go beyond that and we risk triggering many tipping points.
14:41
Oh, the Greenland ice sheet the West Antarctic Ice Sheet that
14:44
represents 10 meter sea level rise, abrupt thawing of
14:47
permafrost which will amplify warming even more. Uh huh. So
14:51
the risks are real. But what I find really significant in this
14:55
year's World Economic Forum's Global risk report is that in
14:58
the top five, it's climate Chang is geopolitical instability, the
15:02
food system crisis, and its risks to the global economy due
15:06
to inflation, which just shows that we're intermeshed in a, in
15:10
a global crisis situation. Climate change is at the core
15:13
because climate impacts on food, climate impacts on energy,
15:16
climate impacts on stability and societies. So it's really kind
15:21
of a complex of many world governments at the same time.
15:24
We got a poly crisis going on. That was another one poly
15:28
crisis. So when you have a poly crisis, you got a whole bunch of
15:31
douchebags sitting together, you got something to do with poly.
15:35
Poly isn't multi, not poly, poly, the YouTuber. Poly isn't
15:42
multi poly, I don't know, stop watching her. So when you're
15:47
when you're when there's a lot of nut jobs around, you got to
15:49
bring in the top nut job, Al Gore Al Gore resurging at Davos,
15:54
2023, and just in top form, and he's heavier than ever. And just
16:00
to put the science in a slightly different context. People are
16:05
familiar with that thin blue line that the astronauts bring
16:09
back in their pictures from space. That's the that's the
16:12
part of the atmosphere that has oxygen atmosphere. And it's only
16:18
five to seven
16:19
is that is that where the oxygen is in that thin blue line. It's
16:22
not all around us.
16:24
It's only in the line. And
16:27
he laughed when he when he said this bullcrap thing too.
16:30
That's the part of the atmosphere that has oxygen that
16:33
drove a sphere. And that's only five to seven kilometers thick.
16:37
Oh, that's what we're using as an open sewer. If you could
16:42
drive a car straight up in the air at interstate highway
16:44
speeds, you get to the top of that blue line and five minutes
16:47
stop shitting on the thin blue line. And all the greenhouse gas
16:51
pollution would be below you. We're still putting 162 million
16:54
tons into it every single day. And the accumulated amount is
16:58
now trapping as much extra heat as would be released by 600,000.
17:03
Hiroshima class atomic bombs exploding every single day. Oh,
17:07
wait a minute. Wait a minute. Did he increase that number?
17:11
I don't know. He ever find one of the old clip? Yes. Well,
17:15
yes. Because here he is. What do you just say? 6000.
17:19
Playback. extra heat
17:21
as would be released by 600,000. Hiroshima class atomic bomb.
17:25
100,000 100,000. Let's go back to 2015 as
17:29
would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima class 400,020 18. And
17:35
it now traps as much extra heat energy every day, as would be
17:40
released by 500,000. Hiroshima class atomic bomb,
17:46
man, it's now 6500. Yeah. 600,000 for heat
17:51
as would be released by 600,000. Hiroshima class atomic bombs.
17:56
I can't believe we accelerated so fast.
17:59
So he's going he's at home thinking the following. You
18:04
know, I've been saying this 400,000 thing. Nobody's paying
18:07
any attention to it. Let me Jack it
18:10
up. Well, then he went, he went from 400,000 to 500,000. Now
18:14
he's any six
18:14
and then no one paid any attention because it's like,
18:17
just a stupid thing to say. And okay.
18:22
This 2015 It was 400,003 years later, it was 500,000. Now we're
18:29
okay, technically four. But really, three years later, it's
18:31
600,000. So at least he's consistent with his increases.
18:35
But it'll go up to 700,000 next time around, but it's like, it's
18:41
like a ludicrous analogy. It's dumb. And so nobody pays any
18:48
attention to it. He doesn't get it. He doesn't understand why
18:50
people don't understand that 400 500 or 600,000. Hiroshima
18:56
bombs.
18:57
It's still pretty bad with one
19:01
accumulated amount. He's now trapping as much extra heat as
19:05
would be released by 600,000. Hiroshima class atomic bombs
19:09
exploding every single day on the earth. That's what's boiling
19:13
the ocean. Every
19:14
single day, every day every
19:16
single day. Wait, did he say that in 2018? I gotta go back
19:21
and check
19:21
and it now traps as much extra heat energy every day. Yeah,
19:25
it's every day. It was always every day every day. 100,000
19:29
Hiroshima class atomic bombs exploding every single day on
19:32
the earth. That's what's boiling the oceans creating these
19:36
atmosphere.
19:37
The ocean is boiling. What the ocean is boiling the ocean. The
19:43
ocean is boiling. I'm looking at the ocean from here. And DC
19:47
bowls. Do you see bubbles? I see no boiling whatsoever. In fact,
19:51
if you got to the San Francisco Beach, which is right there on
19:54
the real ocean, I'm freezing cold
19:57
cry. Boiling man. You You're not out you don't know what he
20:01
means, say
20:02
on the earth. That's what's boiling the oceans creating
20:05
these atmospheric rivers and the rain bombs the moisture out of
20:09
the land and
20:10
rain bombs. Wait a minute. What? Right What a rain bombs.
20:15
Yeah, there was a rain. They brought the rain bomb up. And
20:19
some really? Yeah, recently
20:22
I've not heard of why shouldn't the bomb cyclone now it's the
20:24
rain bomb,
20:25
and bomb, Cyclone rain bomb whatever is boiling
20:29
every single day on the earth. That's what's boiling the
20:31
oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers and the rain
20:35
bombs and sucking the moisture out of the land and creating the
20:38
droughts and melting the ice and raising the sea level and
20:41
causing these waves of climate refugees predicted.
20:47
Sugar in his bio,
20:48
melting the ice and raising the sea level and causing these
20:51
waves
20:52
Is he is he Alex Jones gets better
20:55
climate refugees predicted to reach 1 billion in this century.
20:59
Look at the xenophobia and political authoritarian trends
21:04
that have come from just a few million refugees. What about a
21:07
billion we would lose our capacity for self governance on
21:10
this world, we have to act. So in answer your question, I would
21:15
say we have to have a sense of urgency much greater than we
21:19
have yet had and we need to have had and we need to make some
21:23
changes,
21:24
we make changes wow, this guy is have another clip, believe it or
21:29
not.
21:30
Wait, wait, that was an answer to some question. Yeah, that's
21:33
just
21:33
a general, I don't even know what the quote who cares what
21:35
the question is question. The guy is fantastic. He does not
21:39
stop. So now of course, the problem, one of the pillars of
21:45
Davos this year is the financing. We're just not not
21:49
spending enough money, we need to free up some cash
21:52
enough already enough. And I don't want to get sidetracked on
21:59
to what needs to happen. But we need to scale up climate
22:02
finance. But we need desperately to scale down anti climate
22:06
finance. And we are still subsidizing the burning of
22:10
fossil fuels globally at a rate 42 times larger than the
22:16
subsidies for the shift toward renewables and EVs, etc. We need
22:21
new leadership at the World Bank, we need them to scale up
22:25
the leverage and vastly increase the amounts that are committed.
22:29
And we need to rein in the anti climate activities of the fossil
22:33
industry.
22:34
I think this is the second time we've heard someone say we need
22:37
new leadership at the World Bank. In regard to climate
22:41
change, there's something going on about how this is going to be
22:43
financed to the World Bank, I think I'm not sure. But why
22:47
would he say that? We need new leadership. Hmm.
22:53
sketchy. Interesting. Yeah. That's a very interesting catch.
22:56
Yeah. Your mic is.
22:59
Has my interest wondering. The World Bank?
23:02
Your mic is loose again.
23:04
Yeah, exactly. Yes. Sorry.
23:08
So there was a I'm almost done with this with this basic
23:10
report. There was let me see. Add the fee to get
23:13
more love by the way. He
23:14
Yes, I did get Borla the thing you I have a couple of things on
23:18
Borla. You on Borla. Now I will finish what you're doing wind
23:21
up. Yeah, I wind up with boys a part of it.
23:24
I'm gonna look up the World Bank.
23:26
The so the 15 minutes city, which we've been, we've been
23:32
hearing a lot of this. And in fact, we have a couple 15
23:34
minutes cities one is Oxford. Well, and people just blowing
23:39
through the barricades. We
23:40
haven't talked about the 15 Minute city on the show. But we
23:43
haven't
23:43
Okay. Well, I have I thought I thought we did talk about the 15
23:46
Min. Yes,
23:47
we know I think we talked about in in DayZ. Which clips for the
23:50
15 Minute city and we never brought it okay.
23:52
Well, the the I'm sure we've at least brought it up once the 15
23:55
Minute city idea is the idea that to combat climate change,
24:00
you won't need your car. Because everything you need will be
24:05
within a 15 minute radius. You can drive your car if you want,
24:08
but you won't need to go very far. And now in these 15 minutes
24:12
cities one is Oxford. There's another part of London being
24:15
scheduled for one. The UK seems to be all in. They literally
24:19
have barricades that pop out of them in the middle of the
24:22
street. Like okay, you can't go past this point with your car
24:25
because this is our 15 minute city. So you have your grocer,
24:28
your doctor, you know you're one hooker. I mean, everything you
24:32
need is within the 15 minutes. I
24:35
don't like to store I want to go to a different store when you go
24:37
to Raleigh rallies Riley's or whatever it is other than
24:40
Safeway. You won't be able to you're not supposed to drive at
24:43
that because I know that for example, Lucky's is the only
24:45
place that carries a certain kind of linguist sausage. So I
24:48
want to go there instead. But that's on the other side.
24:51
If you are an elite you're linguini you don't need sausage
24:56
yet. Linguini linguists Yeah, but you want a sausage? No Bugs
25:00
bugs is what you get bugs, bugs. Here's the clip we did not play
25:08
from the last show. This is a short clip about these
25:11
barricades that pop up in Oxford as part of this 15 minute city
25:15
ring.
25:16
In the dead of night. A hooded figure removes a base plate for
25:20
a Barnard then pour cement into the hole. The aim to make it
25:24
hard to install a new one. This footage obtained exclusively by
25:28
ITV meridian is one of hundreds of incidents of vandalism in
25:32
Oxford's local traffic neighborhoods,
25:34
those removing the barriers often don't even wait for the
25:37
cover of night. Now New figures show just how much this kind of
25:41
activity is costing delivery drivers, some films
25:45
flouting the rules can go now that I couldn't understand it,
25:48
because they're not listening to us in nuts where the angers
25:52
coming in, you know that in people being stuck in traffic,
25:56
there was no democracy and Oxford
25:58
bombs on vandalism are a form of civil disobedience.
26:02
Right? So people are vandalizing these things that pop up because
26:05
they don't, they don't get it. They don't understand it. So why
26:08
are we even doing this? This is crazy. Of course, it's good. So
26:11
here's Swedish posh politician says Name Bastiaan Gerard just
26:16
kind of follows up with with a general tenant this this they're
26:19
very serious about these 15 minute cities, they are in fact
26:22
the future of living properly within your city's borders and
26:27
for for policies really to change the rules of the game
26:31
now. So that sustainability becomes the easier choice not
26:36
just for the people, but also for the companies now, so also
26:40
then, changing the way districts work, for instance, I indirectly
26:46
have a lot of districts where you actually don't need a car.
26:50
Because all the activities, no school, buying something,
26:55
everything you can do in walking distance, no, no. And by doing
26:58
that, no people don't buy a car. And it's not felt like actually
27:05
they would like to have a car and they're not allowed to have
27:08
it. But they simply don't need it. Because the environment was
27:12
built in a way that they don't need it. And I think this is
27:15
what policy needs to do. They have to change the environment.
27:19
So a sustainable lifestyle. lifestyle in harmony with nature
27:24
is the easiest way to go.
27:27
Yep, it's the easiest way to go. It makes total sense. So yes,
27:31
the Pfizer team was out lots of big pharma Of course, you'd
27:35
expected big finance, big finance, Big Pharma, big, big
27:39
education. A lot of American politicians cinema and mansion.
27:44
Why does Why does the senator from Massachusetts or the
27:49
senator from West Virginia need to be a Davos?
27:54
I mean, I mean,
27:56
there's that and of course Albert Bula was indeed the you
28:00
know, the chairman of Pfizer, or the CEO of Pfizer, he was there
28:03
and he's very excited because they have the new flu flu
28:07
vaccine is ready good to go. Where are
28:09
you in developing because I know I think that's what you
28:11
originally do it but yeah, it's accurate because I've got an RNA
28:13
for flu Where are you on a flu vaccine based on mRNA
28:17
arriving that has completely recruited to a waiting for cases
28:21
as they accumulate means that people have been vaccinated
28:24
group placebo vaccine and the disease some of them will get
28:28
this and then we are waiting to unblind the data to see what is
28:31
coming
28:32
out we're just waiting for cases we've been vaccinated we need to
28:35
wait let's see for that that
28:35
happening. We're coming
28:37
in that's what's gonna ask I mean, you can't guarantee a
28:40
timeline depending on the clinical trial No,
28:41
because if you miss guess, what would you think? I think by the
28:45
first half of the year maybe first half of
28:47
the year so are how far are we away from one vaccine that's
28:52
both COVID and flu together
28:56
if we have a flu already we started experiments to combine
29:01
the two so that you don't lose time again. I think will come
29:06
more or less all together if it is successful.
29:09
All right, so it's just it's all successful. It's all working
29:12
it's all beautiful now what is odd this year? Maybe not odd,
29:18
but it is odd. If you're a guy like Borla and you're walking
29:22
around the streets of Davos don't or even Schwab Don't you
29:27
think you would have like some body guard on these guys really
29:30
important and top notch and you know, they have to be protected
29:34
at all times? Don't they expect to to be hounded on the streets?
29:39
In Switzerland? Yeah,
29:41
well, it because Alright, so what it's almost like these,
29:45
like news. People go on podcast and they say way too much. The
29:49
elites. They're walking around Davos thinking I'm safe. I'm
29:52
here with all my friends. I'm protected except people are
29:56
walking around like rebel news from Canada. The Oh, yeah, you
30:00
tell me when you when you don't want to hear it. So they
30:03
literally have three cameras, one of the side, one behind and
30:07
one in front. They got two guys with mics. Just hounding the
30:12
guy. He doesn't answer anything. You can kind of hear the PR Li,
30:15
the PR lady struggling. But it's just and this goes on for six
30:19
minutes, please support
30:21
like, can I ask you? When did you know that the vaccines
30:24
didn't stop transmission? How long? Did you know that without
30:28
saying it publicly? That question. I mean, we now know
30:34
that the vaccines didn't stop transmission. But why did you
30:37
keep it secret? You said it was 100% effective, then 90% and
30:43
80%, then 70%. But we now know that the vaccines do not trans
30:47
sub transmission. Why did you keep that secret? Don't have a
30:52
nice day. I know the answer. Why did you keep it a secret that
30:57
your vaccine did not stop transmission.
31:01
It's time to apologize to the world, sir, to give refunds back
31:05
to the countries that poured all their money into your vaccine
31:09
that doesn't work.
31:10
This is almost like a stuttering John bit. You know, go ask all
31:13
these horrible questions and the guy. You won't say anything, but
31:16
they just keep hounding.
31:18
I like I'm sorry. I don't know if he had to keep playing it.
31:22
But I liked the idea of double teaming the guy. Yeah, we have
31:27
two guys with a mic and one guy's asking these one kind of
31:31
question. And other guy asked another kind of question, even
31:33
though it's the same news organization. It's pretty funny.
31:37
I've never, I've never seen that before. It's a pretty good idea.
31:41
I'm gonna play a few more seconds. And then there's an
31:43
also another great Gambit, which I discovered
31:46
something that you notice shamed of what you've done in the last
31:48
couple of years, Germany, apologies
31:50
to the public, sir.
31:54
Are you proud of it? You've made millions on the backs of
31:58
people's tire livelihoods? How does that feel to walk the
32:02
streets as a millionaire? on the backs of the regular person at
32:05
home in Australia, in England and Canada?
32:08
What do you think about on your yachts? What do you think about
32:11
on your private jet?
32:14
So that's one way of doing it another way which is really,
32:18
really smart. is you get a Japanese girl and you get heard
32:26
ask the horrible questions this time. She's hounding Schwab. Now
32:30
I don't know Matt, if Schwab truly is the evil genius at the
32:34
top of the pyramid, and all the I'm gonna play this whole clip,
32:37
it's about a minute 15 And all you have is a PR lady and a
32:42
driver pins, then you're really ignorant, or you're just not
32:47
that important. But this is a good way to do it, because she
32:49
gets his attention. But she screws up at a certain point by
32:52
saying she's an independent journalist. Otherwise she would
32:55
have gotten him to talk
33:02
I'm from I'm from Japan. And I asked you know, we're on our way
33:10
to the next thing. We're a bit late so I think we're gonna
33:14
we're gonna rush actually, but thank you. Thanks very much.
33:19
Media us. I am an independent journalist.
33:26
I love that. I'm independent. Oh, yeah. No, thank you.
33:29
Thanks. Thanks, you. Try again
33:50
I can just smoke a word, a big rush. We've got so many things
33:56
tonight. Thank you.
34:00
I mean, she she could have been wielding a weapon anything. The
34:04
guy's completely unprotected. And it was a good way to get him
34:08
to talk. But she messed up. She does it out. Yes. I'm with
34:10
Tokyo. leading independent news for anyone said anything.
34:15
Anything other than I'm independent. I don't talk to
34:19
you.
34:20
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thanks. By the way. I did a
34:22
little work on the World Bank. Yeah. Which fine. I think I know
34:25
what the what the key is. Okay. Okay. The head of it is David
34:29
Malpass, who was a Undersecretary of Treasury for
34:34
under Trump, Assistant treasury secretary under Reagan. worked
34:39
under George HW Bush. He's a Republican. That's the guy
34:43
heading the World Bank is a Republican and we can't have
34:48
that. Oh,
34:49
this isn't this isn't outrage. No, we can't have that at all.
34:56
All right. Last climate change clip that I have just To kind of
35:00
accentuate it
35:01
a woman and a young boy have been killed in a polar bear
35:03
attack and Alaska. It happened in the village of whales in the
35:07
northwestern part of the state. Police say the polar bear chased
35:10
multiple residents before being shot. Experts say decreasing ice
35:14
is making polar bear encounters more common.
35:17
So first there were no polar bears. Now because it's melting
35:21
not only do we not have polar bears, but now they're attacking
35:24
people
35:25
as you're more calm and
35:27
unbelievable. I love it. I love it. I love it. I love it. So
35:32
much fun everybody
35:36
okay
35:39
I have one thing from Davos which is you and at Davos I
35:42
picked it up off NHK
35:44
second, you got to open your phone. Oh, I'm sorry. I have to
35:47
refresh.
35:51
NASA time to take a shower.
35:54
What can I tell you? What's it called again? You in US salvos
35:59
Okay, got UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is in Davos
36:03
Switzerland at the World Economic Forum. He's been
36:06
highlighting the divisions between developed countries and
36:10
emerging nations. The theme of this year's meeting is
36:13
cooperation in a fragmented world,
36:16
we face the gravest levels of
36:17
geopolitical division and mistrust in generations. And it
36:21
is undermining
36:24
good terrorists said he remains unconvinced wealthier nations
36:27
and leaders truly grasps the frustration and anger in the so
36:31
called Global South. He also said political and business
36:35
leaders need to work together and called for, quote, private
36:39
sector resourcefulness and cooperation, to be able to
36:43
advance in our common objectives of peace, sustainable
36:46
development, and human rights, unquote
36:49
money, give us money. It's all about the money all about the
36:52
money. There was something else going on at the same time as
36:56
Davos, which I was unaware of when someone alerted me to it.
37:00
Another global Global Initiative, a global streaming
37:04
webcast with all kinds of luminaries, this is also
37:08
obviously a climate change thing, but not just about the
37:11
climate change. But what we need to do when we can't eat beef
37:14
anymore. Because this clearly killing the Earth. This is just
37:19
the opening with this multi CultI lady who opened up this
37:23
whole I mean, it was a big thing that really big people speaking
37:27
on it and link in the show notes if you want to see it was the
37:30
name of it. She says it right here. Good morning,
37:34
good afternoon, and good evening to wherever you are in the
37:37
world. I'm Natalie, Becca Markovic, and I'll be hosting
37:40
this global dialogue. I'm a co founder of thought leader global
37:44
and we destroy telling around people in organizations having a
37:47
positive impact. And through our work. I'm an advocate for
37:51
community health. And that starts with ensuring that
37:54
everyone has access to nourishing food. I'm thrilled
37:58
and excited and happy and inspired to be part of today's
38:01
event. Now on behalf of our CO hosts eat and the Rockefeller
38:05
Foundation, I'd like to join and welcome each and every one of
38:09
you and thank you for joining us to reimagine food systems.
38:13
COVID-19 our program today was a hard look at where we are what
38:20
we're up against. We will look at the street level perspectives
38:24
on COVID damage to the food system. From there we will
38:28
explore clear plans and actions to back a more nutritious,
38:32
sustainable, equitable and resilient food system for the
38:36
wild post COVID-19. And they will also be food will be
38:42
okay good one.
38:46
The reimagining food system shaggy dog story I was because
38:51
COVID ruin that all COVID co
38:53
yeah, there's no food anymore.
38:56
Tina and I went to KFC cattle yesterday to pick up a new a new
39:00
Booth was about a third of a cow.
39:03
Yeah, there was quarters in quarters here.
39:05
It's a third No, it's a third.
39:08
They sell a third nobody does that.
39:10
Both. Okay Kara? Yes, they do sell that to me because they
39:15
love me. But the main point of the story was that everyone is
39:20
is asking coal from KMC Are you going to put two mRNA vaccines
39:25
into your cattle? This is like the big question. They are well
39:30
of course they're not so
39:31
we're going to be eating mRNA vaccines now with the meat that
39:34
is grifter? I'm not that place is going to do anything like
39:37
that. No, of
39:37
course not. But not just the into the animals but into
39:41
vegetables, all kinds of stuff. They want to
39:43
push the ball. Yes. Vegetables don't need a vaccine.
39:47
No, but it's to put the vaccine into us. That's the Oh to get
39:52
the
39:52
vaccine into us.
39:53
Yeah, that's yeah, that's the idea,
39:58
talking about trying to kill us. So I have Somebody said,
40:01
somebody said that's my segue. I love it. But go ahead. Oh,
40:05
somebody sent me a three pack of the Kraft macaroni and cheese.
40:10
Oh good. gummies
40:12
Oh, the one that tastes like macaroni and cheese.
40:16
Well, that's the joke. That looks like a little Macaroni
40:20
Cheese colored. It tastes nothing like macaroni orange.
40:25
Oh, it's actually pretty good. Be honest about it for a gummy.
40:30
it's us versus everyone gets grossed out. Oh, and then you
40:35
have it you go. And you eat. This doesn't it's got a citrus
40:40
notes. No. It's like a fine wine. Kind of a citrus notes
40:45
with a little maybe some some milk good tones. It's it's
40:51
actually quite tasty. It's a It's not bad. I mean, it's a gut
40:55
funny looking box, and it gets a gimmick, obviously. But the
40:59
gummies themselves are edible. I am like gummies
41:02
I'm a little disappointed because we got pictures of those
41:05
for the longest time people say oh, look at this at the end of
41:07
it. That's mac and cheese flavored. gummies is what I
41:10
thought but it's not crap. Oh, man.
41:13
No one's gonna eat those. They actually have some you can
41:16
actually you can choke it down. It's not like macaroni and
41:21
cheese flavored. gummies Oh, man, I'm so disappointed to give
41:25
a report on that. Yes, very good. That person who sent me
41:28
those mac and cheese? I don't know who said it because it came
41:31
on Amazon. They went through Amazon is supposed to be a gift.
41:34
I never know note in there. I don't know. Well, that's very
41:37
kind.
41:38
That's very kanji gotta there were two other kinds of
41:44
interesting things that I picked up from Davos. One is the Saudi
41:50
finance minister or I should say finance minister. And he did an
41:55
interview with Bloomberg. And it was mainly about China. And we
42:00
know because they're, they're getting close to China,
42:02
apparently. And the big question that we've kind of had is what
42:08
is the deal with the Riyadh Is it the Riyadh are the real we
42:13
don't have real realistically, Riyadh
42:16
no real Riyadh.
42:19
Riyadh is the village Rio is the money and it seems like that's
42:23
been unplugged from the dollar. And that was just kind of a
42:27
warning sign. But the whole idea behind the petro dollar is we
42:33
went to Saudi Arabia in the 70s and said, You guys, you and your
42:38
camels here you can be kings and shakes and whatever you want to
42:41
be will make you rich beyond your wildest dreams as long as
42:44
you keep selling your oil in US dollars so that the American
42:48
dollar is the reserve currency of the world. Do I have that
42:52
correct?
42:54
I'm not sure if you have it correct, but it's kind of what
42:56
happened Okay, enough was in the 70s I don't know that. It the
43:05
reserve currency is more than just a petro dollar
43:08
correct.
43:08
But that what but it was important it was important in
43:11
anyone who would but I know for a fact and you've noticed anyone
43:15
who bucks this system gets killed,
43:18
right Gadhafi Saddam Hussein, they wanted to sell their oil in
43:22
the gold dinar or possibly euros anyone er
43:26
get out of town. So listen to this,
43:29
was there a discussion
43:30
around paying for oil in yuan fit or kill on this rumor?
43:36
things? One is we enjoy a very strategic relationship with
43:41
China and we enjoy that same strategic relationship with
43:45
other nations including the US and we wanted to develop that
43:48
with Europe and other countries who are willing and able to work
43:52
with us to advance the public goods in the woods. I think with
43:58
regard to China, they are the largest trading partner with
44:01
Saudi Arabia. I think there are no issues with discussing how we
44:04
set up our our trade arrangements whether it is the
44:08
US dollar with zero with our sister saudi riyal or there
44:11
is no discussion on that.
44:13
I don't think we are waving away or rolling out any discussion
44:19
that will help improve the trade around the world.
44:23
Sounds to me like you said, Yeah, whatever. You got your
44:26
euros
44:27
he's maybe he's saying he's beating around the bush which is
44:30
what he was doing. Seems to
44:32
me he said we no issue as long as an impedance match. Right?
44:36
It is possible that when he's when he's not being specific, I
44:39
think he may be saying well, we don't have any issue but what we
44:43
don't
44:43
want to get killed. We don't do it on the Qt people like Don't
44:49
say so loud, man. Just okay, I'll take that.
44:55
I'll take we'll see.
44:58
And then just another one just because it can lead me into an
45:01
interesting statistic about Congress. JPMorgan Chase
45:06
Chairman Jamie Dimon onset with CNBC. It used to be we covered
45:10
Davos almost every year since we started the show, I think. And
45:15
the main source of clips was really only CNBC. Because no one
45:19
else would really care. It was it was a bit like just no one
45:23
cared. It was the elite show that that have helicopter shots.
45:27
Well, we can see down there Davos important people are doing
45:30
meetings this week, and now we've got people hounding
45:33
borlodan Schwab on the streets, so it's a little different, but
45:35
all you could always better, much better. could always count
45:38
on CNBC to have their full panel with a snowy mountain set
45:44
outside, they're all dressed up in their coats, and they always
45:47
have Jamie Dimon on and this year they had an on once again
45:51
and he just he just goes nuts over Bitcoin for some reason.
45:55
You mentioned Bitcoin you said you didn't know what we were
45:57
talking about. We pretty much always have some crypto
46:00
conversation with you I'm just curious because I don't think
46:02
we've talked to you since I think all
46:03
that's been a waste of time and why you guys waste any breath
46:06
and it's totally beyond me
46:07
because you just think the whole thing just is zero gonna zero
46:10
and is fake. Bitcoin
46:11
itself is is hyped up fraud to pet rock back rock.
46:18
So what do you make then of a black rock and other firms that
46:21
are investing in infrastructure
46:23
that's different. Blockchain is a is a technology ledger system
46:28
that we use to move information. We've used it to do overnight
46:31
repo, intraday repo, we've used it to, we're going to use it,
46:35
we've used it to move money, right? So that is a ledger.
46:38
That's a technology ledger type of thing that we think will be
46:40
deployable. Remember we remember we've been talking about that
46:43
for 12 years too and very little has been done so tokens
46:45
and I agree with you, but but Bitcoin face on a distributed
46:48
ledger? All the characteristics of a store of value. It's
46:53
immutable. It's scarce. It totally untrue. It's
46:58
21 million for Yeah, really?
46:59
How do you know it's gonna stop at 21 million because it's
47:01
mentioned the Toshiba everyone says that well, maybe it's gonna
47:04
get to 21 million and Satoshis pictures gonna come up and laugh
47:07
at you. There isn't. By then Satoshi have taken out the
47:13
doors. I love
47:14
that. Satoshi said all about
47:18
I don't know. Well, I think what he's saying is
47:20
once you know but why is Sorkin insisting on on hounding him
47:24
about it? And what is the point of the discussion in so far as
47:28
Davos
47:30
I believe the idea was to promote the stable coin USDC
47:35
which Blackrock is as we know from the last show was in
47:38
heavily invested in and he said, we move money over intraday
47:43
repos we do on blockchain really. Now, that means that
47:49
they're passing money around which is backed on the money in
47:52
the first place. I don't know it just to me it felt like there's
47:55
some message there. Obviously Bitcoin bad because when we hit
48:00
21 million, which will be in about 150 years, when we hit
48:02
when we hit 21 million, Satoshi is going to pop up and go ha ha,
48:06
and he'll exited by then from the grave. And then all this
48:11
other stuff is going to be super good. But there's crypto in the
48:16
air. The big, big arrest, big arrest.
48:21
Checking the top stories a Russian national has been
48:23
arrested in Miami accused of using his cryptocurrency
48:26
exchange to launder more than $700 million in illicit funds.
48:31
The Justice Department says the company was also an online
48:34
marketplace for drugs and stolen financial information.
48:37
Yeah, crypto bad crypto bad business. But here's a very
48:42
short just a headline from coin desk and this is perhaps
48:47
interesting in this regard.
48:48
You analysis from coin desk reveals 196 lawmakers to cash
48:54
from sandbank been fried or other executives at FTX
48:58
that's almost a third of Congress was on the take from
49:00
this kid a third across the board. Did you hear about this?
49:06
No but that doesn't surprise me
49:08
no but but this is this is going to be used against people and I
49:13
would hope so and McCarthy got a couple million Chuck Schumer got
49:16
a couple million all the new Republicans who are now on the
49:21
the agriculture board which I think oversees commodities not
49:26
so I think if you look at some some of these Bitcoin that is
49:31
considered a commodity so they're looking for regular yes
49:35
it is by the by the SEC I think they ruled it and the the other
49:41
guys the I forget all the regulators yet everything is a
49:46
security except Bitcoin that's a commodity. That's what they say.
49:52
So you know, to oversee that, I don't know. It feels
49:56
like you put out a list of the people they got money from this
49:58
guy. Coin desk. How Is it it's quite list and actual list that
50:02
you can publish. Okay. Yeah. Yeah, I'll
50:04
say it in the show notes. It's worth it's worth taking a look
50:07
at. It's, it's a little more Democrats and Republicans, but
50:11
it's a lot of money. And you know, half of these people say,
50:14
Well, you know, I donated it to a good cause.
50:18
What the hell is that? Sure. Did you my wife? Did you
50:21
set it aside? Oh, it's always their favorites, their favorite
50:24
nonprofit? Yeah, run by their wife. I think that money belongs
50:29
to the shareholders or the depositors who got screwed.
50:34
And I think it does. I'm telling you, John will never get it out
50:38
of them. No,
50:38
no, but they won't. But this thing is deep that this there's
50:41
a lot going on with this FTX thing. They brought that Enron
50:44
guy and he covered up stuff. We still don't know who put up the
50:48
bail for Sam bank been freed. It's got to be one of those.
50:52
Maybe it's maybe it's
50:55
blood. My understanding is that he never put a bail. It was a
50:59
promissory note.
51:01
Yes. From two from two people. He has parents. Well, it was
51:05
covered. It was redacted. His parents do not have $25 million.
51:10
No debt,
51:10
but it was a probably you don't have to have $25 million to put
51:14
up a promissory note. I could do it. I am going to give you $25
51:18
million. sign my name and we have to show the assets don't
51:22
you? I don't know that if the judge doesn't demand it.
51:25
Of course. Well, the judge probably also got some coin who
51:27
knows? Course everybody got coin. Oh, no, it's weird. It's
51:35
very weird, man.
51:41
Like Dick Cheney today. Oh, you. Hey,
51:45
anyway, good luck. COVID. All right. Good news. birth rate is
51:49
down. death rate is up. Good work. Everybody.
51:53
Has their China stuff. Okay, got the first US do COVID vs. Ron
51:59
DeSantis. This is good stuff. Okay.
52:01
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced a new plan yesterday.
52:05
It will make protections against course of biomedical policies,
52:09
permanent entities and Daniel Monahan has more.
52:13
V in the Free State of Florida did not happen by accident.
52:17
The legislation will prohibit COVID vaccination passports and
52:21
any COVID Mask requirements. It will also bar all discrimination
52:25
based on vaccination or booster status, including for schools,
52:29
you still have universities that are forcing these students to
52:34
get these booster shots even though
52:37
oh, let me back it up a little bit. I've been trying to I've
52:42
been listening to DeSantis in a kind of in anticipation of
52:47
comics doing his voice. Yeah. Now when you listen to him here,
52:54
tell him he doesn't sound just like Glenn Greenwald.
52:59
It will also bar all discrimination based on
53:01
vaccination or booster status, including for schools,
53:05
you still have universities. Oh, right. Their universities.
53:09
He sounds a little gay. Actually.
53:12
It totally ha You still
53:14
have universities that are forcing these students?
53:18
This is exactly Greenwald. Oh, is this a mill you issue a nail
53:23
that you did to
53:24
get these booster shots, even though there have been studies
53:27
showing they're at more risk from negative effects of the
53:31
shot than they are from COVID itself at that age. And so the
53:35
governor
53:35
discussed the past battles Florida, you
53:38
really did nail that. You almost expected me to say back to you,
53:41
Tucker. I mean, it's incredible. Thanks, Tucker. Thanks,
53:45
Tucker from negative effects of the shot than they are from
53:49
COVID itself at that age. And so the governor discussed
53:52
the past battles Florida had to wage to preserve such freedoms,
53:56
saying it required standing up to major institutions in the
54:00
society, the medical establishment, what he called
54:03
the legacy media and even the President of the United States,
54:07
who together we're working to impose a biomedical security
54:12
stayed on society. They sought to marginalize people who
54:18
declined COVID jabs by using things like vaccine passports,
54:24
they sought to prevent people from being able to
54:27
earn what happened there and just go nuts in the in the in
54:31
the crabs
54:32
by using things like vaccine passports. They sought to
54:37
prevent people from being able to earn a living if they
54:41
declined the jab through the Biden employer mandate. He added
54:46
that Florida intends to protect the right of medical
54:49
practitioners to be able to speak the truth
54:52
and they sought to silence medical practitioners who follow
54:56
the evidence and back the science over The narrative. This
55:01
is
55:01
really quite something that we're hearing here besides the
55:04
fact that He sounds just like Glenn Greenwald. Trump I think I
55:07
don't have a clip he came out and he combated this and said,
55:10
Well, you know, I did the vaccines. We did it. I'm
55:13
paraphrasing super warp speed. We got it all done, save
55:16
probably 100 million people worldwide. But I didn't mandate
55:20
it. Which he didn't. He let that happen. But it seems so
55:26
counterintuitive. DeSantis is truly doing a Trumpian speech
55:31
here. And Trump himself keeps defending
55:36
it made Trump's nose painting himself into a corner here.
55:39
Yeah, and DeSanto senses it and he's going in for the kill.
55:43
He's not the Santos is DeSantis Weiss is ever Yeah. I still
55:50
think Trump may mean but he may be saying is if I hadn't fast
55:55
track these vaccines, y'all would still be in lockdown.
55:58
That's possible. But it's
56:01
told us that would be good.
56:02
It's time to give that up.
56:04
He's got to bail. It's really it's really longer he drags it
56:09
on the worst is going to be
56:11
and people are migrating towards de Santos de Santos de Santos
56:17
from now on. Glenn de Santos
56:20
by the way that that the way he pronounces certain words like
56:23
impose and some of these other words that are in his in his
56:28
Glenn Greenwald like pattern is very similar. I pointed this out
56:32
before to the pronunciation profile of Rand Paul. Yes. Has
56:40
this kind of drags out certain kinds of words. Well, where's
56:43
like, where's
56:43
the Santos from? Where was he born?
56:46
Well, let's we had to look this up to figure it out because
56:50
there is a million possibility here.
56:55
Now he is a Yalie. He's a Delta Kappa Early life Born in
57:03
Jacksonville, he's from Florida. He's from Florida. How about
57:07
that couldn't
57:08
be part of a Florida accent.
57:10
Well is Glenn Greenwald from Florida? No, but
57:12
the Brazilians in Florida are very tight.
57:16
Again, something she would say. Glenn Greenwald is born. Let's
57:20
see where was he born? New York City that he ever live in
57:24
Florida.
57:26
Know that he did but he I don't know where you did. Again. It
57:31
might be Miller you have more than state but I know there's a
57:34
peculiar number of
57:35
waters out inspired by his grandfather's time on the then
57:39
Lauderdale Lake City Council. Yes, he attended Nova Middle
57:45
School and Nova High School in Davie, Florida. Wow, what a
57:48
catch John. They may have been lovers. For all we know,
57:55
well, the Floridian accent it just I found this because I just
58:00
a number of words that annoy me when people say it. And one of
58:04
them is feud. When the same thing food. They see us food
58:08
is that anything like okay food, you don't like food?
58:13
And so I've tracked that down to North Carolina. Hmm. That's a
58:18
North Carolina accent when people say that and there's a
58:21
number of other FM affectations from North Carolina and I picked
58:24
this finally got a good clue on this from a show. A PBS cooking
58:29
show called the farmer and the and the cook or something. It
58:33
was this woman and her did this special for about two seasons
58:37
and they got divorced because he couldn't take it any more great
58:40
words over him great show. It was and so she's still on the
58:46
air. And she's got this really strong North Carolina accent
58:50
which includes all the screwball pronunciations, which are all
58:54
annoying. And, and so Florida, I think has similar accents. And
59:00
because I'm hearing that North Korean North Carolina accents,
59:03
too. So it's some southern thing, but exactly why Rand Paul
59:10
has it from Kentucky, but I don't know if he was. I mean,
59:13
was Dad was from Texas, I think or I'm not sure what that talks
59:17
nothing like that. No. So I don't know. It's interesting to
59:22
me. But
59:24
yeah, I mean, yeah, I think we've worn it out.
59:27
So let's do part two of the same clip
59:30
DeSantis was joined by Florida Surgeon General Joseph ladipo.
59:34
Is all of
59:35
these crazy ideas, whether it's whether it's the lock downs or
59:41
the or the mask mandates for the vaccine mandates or the you
59:45
can't have your your you can't cook with gas, you can't use
59:49
fire, whatever it is, right. It's all
59:51
these crazy ideas. And then he's
59:54
a little different here. It's a little different. It's not it's
59:59
not same accent I'm not quite sure why some
1:00:02
species like Trump. Yeah, yeah, he speaks from a prompter. He
1:00:07
has one sound Yeah. And then when he speaks off off the cuff
1:00:11
he has another sound yes God whose fire
1:00:13
whatever it
1:00:14
is right right all these crazy ideas and then Governor DeSantis
1:00:19
gets to say no that doesn't make sense
1:00:24
some other guy No wonder he shops different
1:00:26
gratitude that there is a lot of consensus around the new
1:00:29
legislation to quote codify more common sense in Florida.
1:00:34
There's just a lot of there's a lot to see out there and having
1:00:39
a, a place of just Common Sense and Sensibility.
1:00:44
I again the Florida is a different guy, but he's got that
1:00:47
Florida accent. It's refreshing to a lot
1:00:49
of people be compared
1:00:50
that to California and Assembly Bill 2098. Governor Gavin Newsom
1:00:56
signed that legislation which punishes the dissemination of so
1:01:00
called misinformation related to COVID-19. That means medical
1:01:04
practitioners could lose their licenses for opinions not in
1:01:08
line with the current medical establishment.
1:01:11
Yeah. Now that is the bill that will debt is going unless Newsom
1:01:17
does something about it pretty soon they don't that's going to
1:01:20
ruin his career. He will tank him Yep, that'll This is the
1:01:24
notion I call it you know, they'd like to rename bills.
1:01:27
Yeah. I like term this bill, the no second opinion bill. You can
1:01:34
not get a second opinion on anything that violates the
1:01:37
government edict. So you go to a doctor and he says, yeah, he's
1:01:41
you get the shot. Love to get a second opinion. Sorry. You can't
1:01:46
get a second opinion.
1:01:47
Now can new. Is this past or can he still veto this bill? He
1:01:50
signed it. He signed it. So he
1:01:53
recently signed it is the dumbest thing he's ever done. He
1:01:56
could have had a million phony baloney excuses for not signing
1:02:00
it. But he's signed it like an idiot. He this is probably I
1:02:04
don't know why I haven't written an essay on this. But I should,
1:02:07
because I gotta get this down. He is. This is a huge mistake a
1:02:11
blunder as the highest order.
1:02:13
As a side note. Pfizer just gave a million dollars to the
1:02:19
Republican Party of Kentucky to expand its headquarters just to
1:02:23
just to bring all that in. The unit party doesn't care about
1:02:27
you people doesn't don't care about you. Don't care about you.
1:02:31
Now we go to China, and I want to play these COVID clips about
1:02:34
China because there's a tidbit in here. I didn't know. Maybe we
1:02:38
knew it, but I don't remember it. I do remember a couple of
1:02:41
things, though you do it. Well, actually. Let's play this first.
1:02:44
And then we'll talk about a couple of things is COVID in
1:02:46
China, weird stat. So continuing
1:02:49
with the COVID crisis in China, what exactly is going on?
1:02:53
official government COVID numbers and death tolls are
1:02:56
generally dismissed. So how is a true picture of the situation
1:03:00
established? And today's Tiffany Meier reports,
1:03:03
it's unclear how much of a toll the COVID-19 pandemic has on
1:03:07
China's population. That's due to what many call a lack of
1:03:11
transparency on data coming out of China. But some unusual
1:03:15
numbers have brought the true scale of the pandemics death
1:03:18
toll under suspicion. One example came in 2020, when
1:03:22
China's biggest cellphone carriers reported losing 21
1:03:26
million subscriptions. That's just the first two months of
1:03:31
that year when the pandemic first hit China. In contrast,
1:03:35
users increased during the same period of time and 2017 2018 and
1:03:40
2019. The sharp decline over the span of two months is unusual,
1:03:45
as Chinese citizens use their phones for pretty much
1:03:48
everything from cashless payments to settling rent and
1:03:52
transportation costs. Some users do have multiple cell phone
1:03:56
accounts, but it's shy of explaining the 21 million
1:04:00
number. The current around in China is also considered heavily
1:04:04
underreported. Over the weekend, a resident in China disclosed on
1:04:09
social media that all four of his grandparents as well as his
1:04:13
mother and father had all passed away. Being an only child, he
1:04:18
explained, he's now alone. Looking at another clip. Last
1:04:23
week, a Shanghai resident took video of caskets lining the city
1:04:27
streets and stretching for several miles.
1:04:31
Yeah, I get such conflicting reports from everybody.
1:04:34
I know you get the reports, but the 21 million is a big deal.
1:04:39
Yeah. Because there's no evidence that the numbers ever
1:04:42
decreased by one, let alone 21 million for that cell phone
1:04:47
carrier.
1:04:47
We've had we had this report, like a year ago, I think or
1:04:50
something similar to it, and they were counting the cell
1:04:53
phones.
1:04:54
Yeah. And if you remember during the early outbreak of the
1:04:58
disease when the China's was They were shutting down a lot.
1:05:02
There was this rumor that that the virus was genetically
1:05:07
targeting Han Chinese remember that? Yes, yes. Yes, I do. And
1:05:12
with that rumor combined with these cellphone subscribers
1:05:16
bailing out 21 million of them, and also rumors of the certain
1:05:21
Yeah, we get conflicting reports because we have people over
1:05:23
there. Yes. And now we have this guy shows I can't really
1:05:28
Photoshop I guess you could. But you started to Photoshop movies.
1:05:32
Unless you have lots of time on your hands. A mile long, or
1:05:37
miles long cast gay are listed the piles of coffins. Hey, hold
1:05:43
on.
1:05:44
Hold on. Hold on a second. I knew it. I prayed is phenomenal.
1:05:48
Episode 1228. So when was that 1228 was
1:05:57
no shows ago? Yeah, that's about so it's ready to show to go and
1:06:01
be? Yeah,
1:06:02
here it is. 21 million fewer cell phone users in China may
1:06:06
suggest a high CCP virus death toll. This not and that's from
1:06:11
Epic times. So at March 22 2020, what's going on here? So this is
1:06:17
the same statistic
1:06:19
from the same period. That's what this report is to
1:06:23
Oh, okay. Okay. I'm sorry. All right. So then we knew this.
1:06:27
Yeah, we knew this. But it's been brought up again.
1:06:32
By NTD, who of course, are filling well, who are epic
1:06:35
times? Yeah, exactly.
1:06:36
All right. So we, you know, again, is there maybe it's true,
1:06:40
maybe it's not? Do we know that number 21 million is accurate?
1:06:44
Yeah. She pops up.
1:06:47
Yeah, so she pops up as funny. Good coincidence? I think not.
1:06:54
Let's play a clip to part part two of this.
1:06:56
In China. Some doctors are saying they've been instructed
1:07:00
on how to certify COVID-19 deaths. It meant what some
1:07:03
experts are calling a peak of Beijing's COVID-19 Wave
1:07:07
hospitals are posting out a notice. Citing a directive from
1:07:11
China's National Health Commission. The Post says
1:07:14
doctors should try not to list COVID-19 on death certificates.
1:07:19
Instead, they must report related cases to their superiors
1:07:23
for inspection by authorities. That's before they can decide on
1:07:28
what cause of death to confirm on the certificates. Several
1:07:32
doctors and other Chinese hospitals said they received
1:07:34
similar instructions, either verbally or via hospital policy
1:07:39
announcements. A doctor from Shanghai shared an article
1:07:42
online earlier this month. In it he said he was asked to change
1:07:47
the cause of death on a certificate from COVID-19 to
1:07:50
something else. He explained he didn't want to alter it in front
1:07:54
of the patient's family and started questioning the official
1:07:58
directive on coming it deaths. And over in California, a now US
1:08:02
resident from China says he's endured the death of multiple
1:08:07
family members. All of them died during the current virus surge
1:08:11
in Beijing. He said his grandmother and uncle in law had
1:08:15
tested positive for COVID-19 before they died, while his
1:08:18
father, father in law and uncle died of heart disease, asthma
1:08:22
and lung infection. None of them were entered into China's
1:08:26
official COVID-19 death count.
1:08:29
It was you know, when Horowitz texted me yesterday. That was
1:08:33
interesting because I was just listening to the DHS plug a
1:08:36
show. And he texted me said I got COVID Again, like wow, this
1:08:40
is this is crazy, man. So we're just going back and forth. And
1:08:44
he says you know a guy I met who cuz he tested because he was
1:08:48
going to go to a wedding this weekend. Everyone's worried
1:08:51
about spreading so that's why he tested and so of course not
1:08:54
gonna go to the wedding. But he said a buddy of his who I think
1:08:57
is in vaccine manufacturing. They're all blaming this on
1:09:03
China and letting everybody out. It's all China's fault now. It's
1:09:11
not it's not because of people being over boosted and creating
1:09:15
variants and that keeps spinning around the globe. No, it's
1:09:19
shining because of China.
1:09:21
Yeah. And as we know, a Fort Lauderdale, Florida is crawling
1:09:25
with Chinese nationals.
1:09:28
I know they're a plague. And the last dose Greenway Yeah, that
1:09:34
makes sense that you would do that. Yeah. So
1:09:37
that's probably where a lot of this propaganda is headed is to
1:09:40
blame China for a failed product. Whatever you do, I have
1:09:48
a supercut whatever you do, do not go on Twitter to find
1:09:54
information about COVID Have you heard this warning
1:09:56
this the same? Clip I said no. Back to a guy We played this
1:10:00
clip. I don't remember this. I do because I am the one who
1:10:04
produced it and had it on the show. Let me say
1:10:06
so I got duped here. Let me say, super cut.
1:10:10
I don't know how well the title. I mean, it's worth listening to
1:10:14
again, I don't have a problem listening to Supercuts over and
1:10:17
over. Let's
1:10:17
see. Let me see if this is the same one hold on a second,
1:10:20
you'll want to be even more cautious when reading about
1:10:22
COVID. On Twitter, be extra cautious when you're looking for
1:10:26
information in the Twitter
1:10:28
company drops its COVID misinformation policy witters
1:10:31
Trump, sorry. All right, well, we'll play it out since it's
1:10:34
fun. I thought it was new. So fun clip is a new, the new
1:10:37
version that you have. It's the same version if it's
1:10:39
COVID-19 misinformation policy.

1:11:28
I got two stories from Twitter that I want to discuss. One is
1:11:33
the FDA apparently will no longer require animal testing to
1:11:37
be done before human trials for any type of drug that comes from
1:11:41
Science Magazine.
1:11:43
That's not good. No, it
1:11:44
depends if you're if you're an animal, I guess it's good. But
1:11:47
yeah, it's good for the animals. Well, that's probably who forced
1:11:51
this. And the new COVID variant is yet another one a new one.
1:11:57
It's orthros us, o r th R Us or thrusts forth now
1:12:03
there's just screw this. Why? Jamaica mocking us we had coming
1:12:09
up with crikey crackpot name. What
1:12:11
is an array? What is orcish? Isn't a Greek mythology or
1:12:15
through size? It's the two headed dog of Greek and Greek
1:12:18
mythology. It's a two headed dog. So it is Greek mythology.
1:12:27
They went from the Kraken from Kraken two or three second door?
1:12:31
Yeah, well, they had to get rid of Kraken. That was a problem.
1:12:34
Well, I've got two Twitter clips. Okay. I got to Twitter
1:12:39
files, the new the new FBI timeline, which is now you know,
1:12:42
there's by the way, a lot of these stuff I noticed today, and
1:12:46
this is a good example. And the example of the 21 million clip.
1:12:53
This is all to do agenda show has covered this two years ago.
1:12:59
Yeah, we are so ahead of everybody else that does stuff
1:13:03
comes you know, kind of snaps back and you know, oh no. Okay.
1:13:06
Well, we already knew that. But that's here. That's here. The
1:13:09
newest version of it. This is the which Twitter, which does
1:13:12
make it kind of difficult because sometimes everyone's
1:13:14
like, Oh, have you heard this? And I'm just I'm kind of bored
1:13:19
because we did that already. And I
1:13:20
feel years ago sometime.
1:13:22
I don't know if it's good or bad that we sometimes don't reach
1:13:26
back. Because people just seem to forget stuff from three
1:13:31
months ago even when
1:13:33
they forget stuff from two weeks ago. Let's go a Twitter fails.
1:13:35
New FBI timeline.
1:13:37
One of the journalists involved in releasing the so called
1:13:40
Twitter files is sharing what he learned about the FBI. He wrote
1:13:44
an op ed detailing his findings.
1:13:46
journalist Michael Shellenberger is one of a few who worked with
1:13:49
Elon Musk in releasing the so called Twitter files file stay
1:13:53
Fox News released showing Berger's op ed titled Elon Musk
1:13:57
chose us to report on the Twitter files. Here are the
1:14:00
disturbing things I learned about the FBI Shellenberger says
1:14:03
he discovered that the FBI and intelligence community
1:14:06
discredited factual information about 100 Biden's foreign
1:14:10
business dealings both after and before the New York Post reveal
1:14:13
them to the world in October 2020. He says in December of
1:14:17
2019, the FBI issued a subpoena for Hunter Biden's laptop and
1:14:21
then picked it up at a repair shop in Delaware. In December,
1:14:24
Shellenberger tweeted that it would have only taken a few
1:14:26
hours for the FBI to confirm that the laptop belonged to
1:14:30
Hunter Biden saying it only took a few days for a journalist.
1:14:33
According to Shellenberger, the FBI did nothing to investigate
1:14:36
the many signs of criminal activity revealed by emails and
1:14:40
other documents on the laptop. Months later, Rudy Giuliani
1:14:43
received a copy of the laptop and brought it to the New York
1:14:46
Post. Then in October, Hunter Biden and his lawyer learned
1:14:49
that the New York Post was planning to run the laptop story
1:14:52
on that same day, just two hours later, the FBI reportedly sent
1:14:56
10 documents to Twitter's then head of site integrity. If
1:15:00
you're off when the post to publish the article in the next
1:15:03
day, it was censored by Twitter and other social media companies
1:15:06
almost straight away. The FBI reportedly kept warning Twitter
1:15:10
and Facebook of Russian hacking leak campaigns. Shellenberger
1:15:14
writes that an FBI agent admitted those warnings weren't
1:15:17
based on any new findings through our investigations. We
1:15:20
did not see any similar competing intrusions to what had
1:15:23
happened in 2016.
1:15:29
Okay, this kind of jumbles the timeline as we know it, because
1:15:34
it goes to pre you know, pre New York Post and they also
1:15:39
know it's all the way back to Obama. That's why the timeline
1:15:42
has to be all secretive and shit.
1:15:45
I guess. Yeah. Okay, that's a part two of that.
1:15:47
Shellenberger also writes that a big number of former agents
1:15:51
started to work for Twitter. As of 2020, there were so many
1:15:54
former FBI employees BU alumni working at Twitter that they had
1:15:58
created their own private Slack channel and a crib sheet to
1:16:02
onboard new FBI arrivals. After the Twitter files came out.
1:16:06
Representative Jim Jordan said he was concerned about the
1:16:08
government running a misinformation operation on
1:16:11
Americans entity reached out to the FBI for comment on
1:16:15
Shellenberger op ed, but did not hear back before broadcast.
1:16:21
Oh boy,
1:16:22
I liked the fact they had their own Slack channel.
1:16:24
Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah, so I can I can communicate all the time
1:16:29
just quickie or Thrace. I'm sorry to go back to this was a
1:16:33
monster in Greek mythology. A dog with two heads and brother
1:16:37
of Cerberus the three headed dog. That
1:16:39
girl does come in next to the god of the underworld.
1:16:44
Well, then we also have typhus and Shin mechana at s should I
1:16:50
should not Yeah,
1:16:51
that won't happen because you can't pronounce it. No, I
1:16:54
think yeah, I think Surber should be next. I agree. Hmm.
1:17:01
They are just messing with us. I agree. They're messing with us.
1:17:03
And messing with us. It wasn't funny though. It's cute. three
1:17:07
headed dog. It's cute. I'd say it's cute. Not a dog. So we had
1:17:14
the key of chopper crash. Yeah. Ukraine before we go into the
1:17:20
break.
1:17:22
Do you want to do you know looking at the donations again,
1:17:25
you don't want to do just
1:17:26
one donation direct one on one big long donation. It's not even
1:17:30
going to be one big long one. But I know it's less than 50
1:17:33
people total who donate to this show on my mailing list of
1:17:37
30,000 and viewership or listenership of 850,000. So
1:17:42
that's you know, is this a I blame the news? The news is
1:17:48
boring.
1:17:51
What how does that affect us?
1:17:52
Here's the only good well it because I haven't given them
1:17:55
money for this boring.
1:17:58
I have a quick I have a quickie ABC 14 second teaser to get us
1:18:02
into it.
1:18:02
We have breaking news from you going back home. It's
1:18:04
14 seconds to live and we have breaking news. Ukraine. There's
1:18:07
word that Ukraine's interior minister has been killed in a
1:18:10
helicopter crash near the capital of Kyiv. At least 16
1:18:13
people were killed including two children. There was no immediate
1:18:16
word on the cause of the crash. But we'll bring you more details
1:18:19
as we get them
1:18:20
now. I'm sure that didn't mess up here. Oh, you won't. It's a
1:18:24
lie. Okay,
1:18:27
my key key chopper crashes.
1:18:32
Have they captured you?
1:18:33
It's one point yes. 1.11. Has a little more detail.
1:18:39
At least 16 people were killed in a helicopter crash just
1:18:42
outside Kev on Wednesday, including Ukraine's interior
1:18:46
minister. It came down between this kindergarten in the eastern
1:18:50
suburb of bravery and a residential block. Three
1:18:54
children were among the dead President Volodymyr Zelensky
1:18:57
said calling the crash a terrible tragedy. The pain is
1:19:01
unspeakable. He said in a statement. Ukrainian officials
1:19:04
said the cause wasn't immediately clear. They made no
1:19:07
reference to any Russian attack in the area at the time. Not at
1:19:11
the moment. National Police Chief eco commando confirmed
1:19:15
that interior minister Denise monastero ski was killed
1:19:18
alongside his first deputy have Henny here Nene and other
1:19:22
ministry officials on board. monastero ski was the most
1:19:25
senior Ukrainian official to die since the war began. The French
1:19:30
made super Puma helicopter was operated by the State Emergency
1:19:33
Service. At least six people were killed on the ground
1:19:36
official said including the children. According to the
1:19:39
Regional Governor at least 29 were injured 15 of them children
1:19:44
Air Force spokesperson Yuri if not said it could take several
1:19:48
weeks at least to investigate the disaster.
1:19:52
Yeah, I love the we got a producer who have you ever heard
1:19:56
from this producer before who all sudden started to send us a
1:19:59
story Same as emails a day. Yeah. Has he been around?
1:20:03
You know, dial recall him? I'd have to look at my history.
1:20:07
Yeah, I
1:20:07
didn't recall him either. And, and he had this whole breakdown.
1:20:11
And you know, it was clearly Russia. And you actually thanked
1:20:14
him on email said, Hey, thanks for the briefing, which I
1:20:17
thought was funny. Thanks for the briefing.
1:20:21
It was a briefing your new guy and
1:20:22
it seems there may have been a device planted on the
1:20:25
helicopter. Yeah,
1:20:26
it was there's no evidence of this yet. And I heard that it
1:20:30
was so foggy Dan, that you can barely see it in front of your
1:20:32
face.
1:20:36
That's always very dangerous with helicopters. See, I'd
1:20:40
say
1:20:43
but I heard that that the rotor had separated from the from the
1:20:47
aircraft itself that no evidence of what I saw on the crash from
1:20:51
crash pictures. It seems like it was intact, so I don't know. But
1:20:55
in general, you get these these French helicopters, which are
1:21:01
fine. You know, Eurocopter also the fine helicopters and the
1:21:04
super Puma. But if maintenance is everything, you need
1:21:09
maintenance for these things. I won't even get on a helicopter I
1:21:12
won't even fly myself or and with anyone else if if I don't
1:21:16
know who's been maintaining it. They're not they're not really
1:21:20
great machines. You know, if the super Puma man, it's a big it's
1:21:24
a big helicopter. So I don't think we're well, you're right.
1:21:29
I don't think we'll ever learn. But of course, it is being used
1:21:31
immediately for fundraising for Ukraine.
1:21:33
Of course, why not?
1:21:35
And we have the Dutch Prime Minister was in Washington DC.
1:21:46
Margarita, of course, no one cares about him. And in fact,
1:21:51
when he sat down with with the President, all the press were
1:21:55
just yelling about the dot the documents that the in his
1:22:00
Corvette. And yeah, Margarita is is seen as a total goofball,
1:22:04
Dumbo, just waiting his turn until you get to go to get some
1:22:09
cushy job in Brussels. And so of course, he he's a ward Hall.
1:22:15
Yeah, we're totally going to participate. We're going to help
1:22:17
you out. We're going to help you out there, Ukraine. You bet.
1:22:20
On Tuesday, the Netherlands announced that they will join
1:22:22
the United States and Germany in helping to equip Ukraine with a
1:22:26
defense system. According to Dutch Prime Minister Mark
1:22:29
Rutter, this would not be a complete Patriot system, but
1:22:33
rather equipment to supplement American and German aid.
1:22:37
Volodymyr Zelensky, for his parts, is trying to put pressure
1:22:40
on the Dutch Prime Minister by announcing the sending of a full
1:22:43
battery, or
1:22:44
Ukraine will receive another Patriot battery, thanks to our
1:22:47
Dutch friends, we already have three guaranteed batteries. But
1:22:51
this is only the beginning. We are working on new solutions to
1:22:55
strengthen our air defense. And
1:22:56
that's the purple. The announcement was made just a few
1:22:59
days after the Russian strike on the city of nipro. One of the
1:23:03
deadliest since the beginning of the war.
1:23:06
So this is not a full battery. This is only some supplemental
1:23:11
stuff. And you can hear that as a Lenski immediately pressuring,
1:23:15
by the way the from what I understand that attack on the
1:23:18
you know, the bombing of the apartment building. Apparently,
1:23:22
there was Ukrainians who tried to shoot this missile down and
1:23:26
diverted it into
1:23:28
that building. Yeah, that wouldn't surprise me.
1:23:31
Now, of course, that may be Russian propaganda.
1:23:33
You never know. It could all be we don't know. That's the
1:23:36
problem. It could all be a movie set for all. And the other thing
1:23:38
is, you know, we have to we keep forgetting the size of Ukraine.
1:23:42
Oh, my goodness. Yes. It's a monster country's huge. And what
1:23:46
you're going to have three Patriot missile batteries. I
1:23:50
mean, they're didn't Patriot missiles. You know, protecting
1:23:53
Israel, which is a dinky country wasn't enough to really do that
1:23:58
much of anything. Mod admin can maybe put put up a couple of
1:24:03
batteries around Tel Aviv, a town a city in Israel, and that
1:24:07
would probably be the desired dome idea. But the whole country
1:24:11
of Ukraine, these things aren't going to be used for anything.
1:24:15
Maybe it'd be used once in a while at some point to protect
1:24:17
somebody's farm, or some particular installation. But
1:24:22
it's ludicrous. Yeah.
1:24:27
Margarita made zero impression on the press or the President or
1:24:32
anybody, no one cares. But he did.
1:24:34
He did go to the Atlantic. He's well known on our show. He went
1:24:38
to the Atlantic
1:24:39
Council, and he had something to say there, if we, if we would,
1:24:44
except for one moment that Putin could be successful in Ukraine
1:24:47
that he would get pF and he would get the whole country in
1:24:50
front end there. He will continue history has taught us
1:24:53
his lesson. I'm not going to say there. There are analogies
1:24:56
between him and his or her some are saying but it is one
1:24:59
analogy. And then as she has been Munich 38, when Chamberlain
1:25:03
came back and said, I bring you peace in our time at Churchill
1:25:07
saying Britain had to choose between war and his honor. But
1:25:10
it didn't chose this honor, it will get worse. And for me, that
1:25:15
analogy is absolutely there. So he's doing the Churchill thing,
1:25:19
as well as the Lensky. Just like Churchill said, he approached it
1:25:24
from the reverse angle, saying, well, Chamberlain said, and then
1:25:28
shortly, Churchill said, no.
1:25:33
Yeah, guys get some good people that brief him. Not his ideas,
1:25:40
as for sure.
1:25:41
On the grand scale of things. This is all about the military
1:25:45
industrial complex. The general now in charge of the Ukrainian
1:25:52
fighting forces, says, hey, you know, we're a great testing
1:25:56
ground for new weapons, send them over boys.
1:25:59
And lift stating the obvious, yes,
1:26:02
and it verbatim. And we're, you know, we have some pretty good,
1:26:10
did anybody come up and say, hey, that's what do you think
1:26:12
we're doing?
1:26:15
Yeah, and the idea is probably that these Patriot missiles will
1:26:19
fail. It's not going to go to work, right? Of course, they
1:26:24
have to go through six months of training, they already the
1:26:26
Ukrainian soldiers have already arrived in the United States, I
1:26:29
forget what base they're out there getting their training. So
1:26:32
I don't know if so no one's going to be operating them just
1:26:34
based in Oklahoma. Yes, it is. You're right. So no one will be
1:26:39
operating them. But when they do, they should fail
1:26:40
spectacularly so that we can yet again, get some more money to
1:26:45
build better stuff that we can kill people with who live in
1:26:49
sandy areas, mainly, but
1:26:50
which brings me to the to the movie that people should go
1:26:54
watch this on YouTube. Actually, the whole movie is called
1:26:57
Pentagon wars starring Kelsey gras. Yeah, he plays a great a
1:27:02
whole, like Kelsey Grammer is terrific in playing certain
1:27:06
acting roles. And there was always a comedic element to it.
1:27:11
But to Pentagon Wars is a true story of some Air Force.
1:27:16
Lieutenant Colonel, I guess I think it was what his ranking
1:27:19
was, it got into the Pentagon. And his job was to push through
1:27:22
no matter what, the Bradley fighting vehicle right, which
1:27:26
began as in the test, the whole story began as a as a troop
1:27:31
carrier. And it evolved into a just a nightmarish kind of a
1:27:36
homer simpson designed car that does too many things and didn't
1:27:41
work. And it was just junk. And it's the movie itself, which is
1:27:45
Pentagon wars. I got 99 in the show notes. 90 890-898-9898 is
1:27:54
terrific. And I'm sure it will go according to of course,
1:27:58
according to the comments that I read, it is still used as a
1:28:02
training film, at the Pentagon, for people in
1:28:07
well, they must have paid they must have paid for it then
1:28:09
because how else is it on YouTube and its full glory from
1:28:12
1998. It must be paid for and bought and paid for by someone,
1:28:17
someone, but it's used as a training film, even host has
1:28:21
accomplished his nothing. And you can see why when you watch
1:28:24
this movie. It is quite funny. But it's about the Bradley
1:28:30
fighting vehicle, which was always considered a white
1:28:32
elephant which we got to been sent over as we sent him to get
1:28:36
rid of them.
1:28:38
Shouldn't we couldn't leave in Afghanistan, send it to Ukraine
1:28:41
get rid of that stuff. Here's the little report from TR T the
1:28:46
Turkish foreign minister came in because we're doing a deal where
1:28:51
it's selling f6 teens to them.
1:28:54
Maybe Joe shoulder is in Washington DC for crucial face
1:28:57
to face talks with his us counterpart. As the State
1:29:01
Department kicked off the congressional approval process
1:29:04
last week for the sale of F 16 fighter jets to Turkey. With an
1:29:08
informal notification sent to Capitol Hill, a handful of
1:29:12
members of Congress publicly aligned themselves with a Greek
1:29:15
position to block the sale they've already promised to do.
1:29:19
So again, the Turkish Government is calling on America to weigh
1:29:23
up the situation carefully.
1:29:25
You know, here's what we are saying generally to the US the
1:29:28
balance in US relations with Turkey and Greece has been off
1:29:32
or the US used to have a balanced policy. The balance
1:29:35
between the Turkish and Greek Cypriots has also unfortunately
1:29:38
been off and Ally like the US should pay attention to the
1:29:41
balance within the
1:29:43
US President Joe Biden could soon move forward with a formal
1:29:47
notification, despite staunch opposition from Senate Foreign
1:29:51
Relations Committee Chair Bob Menendez, the president can
1:29:54
still technically override Congress to get the deal over
1:29:58
the line. Thank you Jeremy. For single cornets to find an
1:30:01
unlikely a two thirds majority,
1:30:03
we should sell them the F 16. Jets and modernize those jets as
1:30:07
well. It's not in our interest not to do that. And I indicated
1:30:12
to them that I've not changed my position at all since December.
1:30:17
And there was no quid pro quo that was just we should sell but
1:30:21
I need congressional approval to be able to do that. And I think
1:30:25
we can get
1:30:25
that. Probably good to get it. They didn't hold yet. But we
1:30:33
did. It was first flop flown in 1974, which means it was
1:30:37
probably designed in the late 60s.
1:30:39
Why don't we give it to them, then if it's all junk?
1:30:42
Well, they still make him they've modernized him a bit.
1:30:46
But why don't we just sell it to him?
1:30:47
I don't know why we're not selling him the F 35. That's the
1:30:50
moneymaker. Now
1:30:54
whenever I say add that Turkey, I immediately get people who
1:30:57
work on the F 35 program emailing me. Could you please
1:31:01
tell me why you think it's a turkey? And I'll just say that's
1:31:04
what everyone else is saying. I don't know.
1:31:06
That's what everyone says it won't fly supersonic. Right? My
1:31:10
wrong but I don't
1:31:11
I'm not sure. I really don't know. It's a push because I
1:31:14
asked the guy who emailed me and I said that's just what
1:31:19
everyone's saying. Um, I thought there was there might be
1:31:21
something with there was something there were a couple of
1:31:23
minor things. I recall that that were not right. But mainly
1:31:26
because it's been such a boondoggle for so long. It's
1:31:29
costing you know, the overrun is worth 10 times or some
1:31:32
incredible amount of what it was supposed to cost. And then I
1:31:35
said can you get me some simulator time? Which was a hard
1:31:39
No. So I got oh, I'll come over to your factory. Let me fly this
1:31:43
thing. Would it be fun? He says the Push Button plane says
1:31:46
anyone can fly it. About that. Will they have it? Maybe time to
1:31:53
bring up a Smedley Butler wars a rocket as something that people
1:31:57
are we're recommending things anyway. Like the Pentagon wars,
1:32:01
that's probably a good thing to read.
1:32:04
War is a racket from Smedley Butler is in public domain, you
1:32:08
get copies of everything just download a PDF.
1:32:10
With all this material flowing throughout the world as we're
1:32:14
just sending stuff over all of our excess stuff. You get things
1:32:17
like this happening
1:32:18
back now was something TSA found inside a checked bag at San
1:32:22
Antonio's airport. What appears to be an anti tank weapon
1:32:26
agency. It was declared chicken but the airline never told the
1:32:29
TSA about it. It was not allowed through screening.
1:32:33
Someone declared Hey, I got a tank bomb.
1:32:36
A tank bomb.
1:32:39
Oh, anti tank weapon in my carry on. Is that okay? Sure. Go
1:32:42
ahead. You could just take it through TSA. Checked it. Are
1:32:45
these things coming from? Are they coming from I asked you
1:32:51
so so I got listed with anything else I get. The Ukraine update
1:32:56
from NHK is probably worth listening to.
1:32:59
Yes. Okay. Hello.
1:33:01
Hong Kong. Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has no
1:33:05
doubt that victory in Ukraine is inevitable. The comment comes as
1:33:10
his commanders move to expand and strengthen their armed
1:33:13
forces. Putin commemorated the 80th anniversary of the Red Army
1:33:19
breaking Nazis during World War Two.
1:33:22
Did you hear that? That that bugle sounded like one of those
1:33:26
European ambulances from this from the 70s? Yeah. Yeah,
1:33:33
exactly.
1:33:34
commemorated the 80th anniversary of the Red Army
1:33:37
breaking a Nazi sees during World War Two. He met with
1:33:41
workers and a missile factory now in the middle of ramping up
1:33:44
production
1:33:45
measures to equalize national weight. So this is the courage
1:33:50
and heroism of our fighters during the special military
1:33:53
operation on the frontline and, of course, the work of defense
1:33:57
industrial complexes, people like you,
1:34:00
Putin revisited an old thing calling Ukrainian leadership,
1:34:04
neo Nazi. He said again, that Russian troops are fighting to D
1:34:09
notify the country. Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky
1:34:13
also took up a familiar appeal. He asked leaders gathered at the
1:34:17
World Economic Forum for more weapons.
1:34:22
Wow, that's news.
1:34:24
Wait a minute. Is Putin dead yet from the cancer? No, we're from
1:34:28
the Parkinson's.
1:34:30
Yeah, didn t we have the shakes?
1:34:32
And this is annoying. I thought this would be
1:34:35
buffaloed I do think so the second part of this is about the
1:34:40
tanks and the tanks and more tanks.
1:34:43
Eyes around the world will soon turn to Germany where defense
1:34:46
cheese with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are set to
1:34:50
meet the Friday talks will once again focus on help for Ukraine.
1:34:55
And this time the main topic is tanks titled new input German
1:34:59
Ciao So are all of assaults that are said in doubles, that
1:35:03
Russia's aggression must fail.
1:35:05
That is why we are continuously supplying Ukraine with large
1:35:08
quantities of arms in close consultation with our partners.
1:35:13
This includes defense systems like Iris T, or patriot,
1:35:18
artillery, and armored infantry fighting vehicles.
1:35:22
But Shultz declined to say whether Germany will allow its
1:35:25
leper to battle tanks to be sent to Ukraine. They're the go to
1:35:29
tanks for about 20 countries. Poland and Finland have already
1:35:34
announced they want to provide the text to Ukraine. But Germany
1:35:37
can veto the move. So it suggested Tuesday that he'd be
1:35:41
willing to allow the move under certain conditions. It follows
1:35:44
some US prodding, as Washington seems concerned about a spring
1:35:48
offensive from Russia. Ahead of Friday's gathering, Germany's
1:35:52
new Defence Minister will host his us counterpart to discuss
1:35:56
the issue.
1:35:58
It's worth noting that as as bad as everyone thinks Putin wants
1:36:05
to conquer Ukraine, so he can get the rest of Europe Thank
1:36:09
you, Prime Minister that he really hasn't been bombing Kyiv
1:36:14
that much he just kind of seems to leave that alone.
1:36:17
bombed it a few times there's been some some hits. But of
1:36:20
course, we don't know too much about it. But key of is of
1:36:24
course, the
1:36:25
you're slipping into you're saying keep your key if
1:36:29
that time key if you kind of, okay. Key of is, is the
1:36:34
motherland is the home base. It's where Russia was first
1:36:38
founded founded yet, right? So you don't want to blow it up,
1:36:42
necessarily. I mean, you might eventually but you know, it's
1:36:46
like blowing up your old old family home just out of spite.
1:36:50
It's other places you can blow up instead.
1:36:53
Let's talk about this for a moment because we hear the World
1:36:56
Economic Forum, queen, Ursula and others talking about the
1:37:01
we're going to rebuild we have to rebuild Ukraine that will be
1:37:03
the next the next tranche
1:37:05
than me the next money grab,
1:37:08
right. So what will the trigger be to settle this to stop it? It
1:37:16
sounds like Putin has to it has to be Putin Putin has to die.
1:37:22
Otherwise, it just they will not stop. It's whatever it is
1:37:25
Alinsky dies, same thing. Now because his wife will just slip
1:37:29
into that spot. She'll tell,
1:37:31
you know, I'm gonna guess
1:37:34
what it was the Lansky goes, and then all of a sudden there's
1:37:36
going to be peace now. It there's got to be a better
1:37:40
signal for that, don't you think?
1:37:42
Well, if Putin is not going to die, so he's got years to go. I
1:37:47
mean, I don't think I mean, look along, Fidel Castro lived, and
1:37:53
they were trying to kill him from day one
1:37:55
within the walls. They could try the old exploding cigar
1:37:58
business. And cigar. The exploding coke. Yeah, go ahead.
1:38:04
Zelinsky. I don't know. I don't know. I
1:38:08
don't know. I like to know. I like to die. If you haven't
1:38:10
heard anybody suggestions. How
1:38:12
about this. The only way we could do it is if a new theater
1:38:16
opens up for the military industrial complex.
1:38:19
Rosaleen spent or throw money away someplace else. Yeah. Maybe
1:38:23
Taiwan. You saw a little evidence there with the turkey?
1:38:26
Greece? Yeah. It's a bit there travelers. Big. The big.
1:38:32
We're talking a couple f6 teams, we need other stuff. And how can
1:38:36
you get compassion on the level of Ukraine? For Turkey? Turkey
1:38:40
A,
1:38:41
you can't get it Africa's falls in that same category. Oh, man.
1:38:46
Everything at the World Economic Forum is about Africa. Oh, yeah,
1:38:49
that's where we're gonna get all of our minerals from Hey,
1:38:51
Africa, we're coming. We're coming to get you. And the
1:38:56
Africans are not stupid. They know it. Like oh, no, not these
1:39:01
jokes. Again, that coming in and just gonna ruin everything. Give
1:39:06
us no chance to climb out of this. They already run their
1:39:10
money. They run everything the Chinese are in there. Well, you
1:39:13
know, there you go. This is something we could do. What if
1:39:19
we found a particularly perfect African country that is being
1:39:25
harassed by China? And we we build a theater of war there.
1:39:30
You could even make up an African country no one would
1:39:33
know.
1:39:34
disrupt the Chinese scamper. They're not dumb. They may if
1:39:39
you recall, during the Libyan conflagration in around Tripoli,
1:39:45
there was a huge series or just like a giant mall of Chinese
1:39:49
buildings that were being built to China was moving in on on
1:39:52
Libya, something that wasn't discussed too much even on the
1:39:54
show. We talked about this, and they just took off that when
1:39:58
that war broke out. There wasn't one Chinese left in the whole
1:40:02
country saying now we're out of here we don't have we got out of
1:40:05
things to do. So they just shut out of there so I just
1:40:09
I just like to figure it out and you know what what are they
1:40:11
going to do? How will this end they keep saying whatever it
1:40:15
takes will go forever nothing's going to stop we is no no, no,
1:40:18
no, no. But then could they want to rebuild so how what is this?
1:40:23
How is what is the signal?
1:40:25
You can realize a little more well, yes, but you still the
1:40:29
longer you do it, the more rebuilding they'll take.
1:40:33
I understand but how can we can't figure out the stop moment
1:40:37
It really must not be there yet. Even though Ursula herself is
1:40:41
saying oh the the long reconstruction it will take
1:40:44
quite a while but we'll get there. We'll have to do it. No,
1:40:48
no, ma'am. The cabinet pretty close to the chest.
1:40:54
there plenty let's go to this Chinese warship concerns. This
1:40:59
is interesting. Oh, I don't Oh, I see two clips at the exact
1:41:03
same time. Not liking that. But okay.
1:41:06
I'll play the first one. Then.
1:41:08
In the blue waters of the South Pacific, the French military
1:41:12
spotted a Chinese warship. This warship appeared near French
1:41:16
Polynesia on December 22. Last year, a group of islands in the
1:41:21
South Pacific Ocean. A week later, the French military
1:41:24
against snapped photos of a Chinese warship. This time your
1:41:28
New Caledonia, a French territory in the Southwest
1:41:32
Pacific over 700 miles east of Australia. It's unclear if it's
1:41:37
the same warship that emerged earlier. Captain James Bunnell
1:41:41
is the former director of intelligence and information
1:41:44
operations for the US Pacific Fleet. He said having this
1:41:47
warship out in the South Pacific demonstrates how China is
1:41:51
pushing its military modernization forward
1:41:54
that the PLA leadership feels confident that their platforms
1:41:59
are able to transit long distances.
1:42:03
What's unusual about this worship is that at the time it
1:42:06
was spotted. It was over 6000 miles away from his home base
1:42:11
that's beyond the range of missile destroyer of this scale
1:42:15
could sustain without a refill and ship following behind
1:42:19
their ships have the capacity to transit these long distances.
1:42:23
And I think that's something that also Americans should
1:42:26
understand is that we hear conflicting reports from so
1:42:30
called experts who talk about the inferiority of PLA Navy
1:42:34
warships, and that they don't have long range. And that's
1:42:37
actually not true.
1:42:38
The for now said there's another possibility there
1:42:43
diplomatic efforts in establishing relations and
1:42:47
improve relations with a number of nations in the South Pacific
1:42:50
as enable them to be able to transit out there without a an
1:42:55
oiler that would go with them to ensure that they always had
1:42:58
fuel.
1:43:00
So what do you think this is about then?
1:43:02
I think he's just some lone ship floating around, you know,
1:43:05
checking things out. It's just a small destroyer with a missile
1:43:09
destroyer. And they say, there's a number of things that were odd
1:43:13
about the report. One is that oh, the French guy took a photo
1:43:17
a saw it, you know, are you telling me that the 1000s of
1:43:21
satellites that we have aren't tracking every single ship that
1:43:25
China has on the Pacific Ocean? You think so? I would think so
1:43:30
it's never mentioned in this report. Now, there's more
1:43:33
information if the second half of this report is actually the
1:43:36
second half.
1:43:37
For example, the President of the Philippines visited Chinese
1:43:40
leader Xi Jinping last week, the two countries published a joint
1:43:44
statement pledging to boost cooperation.
1:43:47
So it's entirely possible that there was a port call by a
1:43:50
Chinese warship in somewhere in the Philippines. And as I
1:43:54
mentioned previously, it's possible also that they could
1:43:56
have stopped somewhere else along the way by the want to
1:44:01
cure a boss probably not cure a boss because they don't have a
1:44:04
lot of resources there. But the Solomons is also one.
1:44:07
Beijing has been competing for clot in the South Pacific,
1:44:10
several countries there have cut off diplomatic relations with
1:44:14
Taiwan and recognized Beijing instead, the Solomon Islands is
1:44:18
one of them. The same day the French military saw the Chinese
1:44:22
warship near New Caledonia, a Chinese aircraft carrier group
1:44:26
as close to Guam. That's according to Beijing's official
1:44:30
mouthpiece Global Times. The island of Guam is a US territory
1:44:35
and the site of a major military base is home to Air Force and
1:44:39
naval facilities. It's also a critical hub for submarine
1:44:42
communications cables between the western US Hawaii, Australia
1:44:47
and Asia.
1:44:48
So I think we're going what we're seeing now is These are
1:44:51
indicators of the PLA Navy resuming its pursuit and its
1:44:56
strategic trend line of becoming a global naval force.
1:45:01
He noted that having a global naval force is critical for
1:45:04
Beijing's global economic outreach,
1:45:07
having a big Navy, that can be able to ensure that their
1:45:12
ability to transport goods and services across the oceans of
1:45:17
the world to extend this Belton Road initiative that extends
1:45:22
China's economic power to assure that they have access to these
1:45:25
resources is the main main goal.
1:45:28
Yeah, that's the Belt and Road strategy and have your spots
1:45:31
around the world where you can, can refuel. Hello, everyone
1:45:36
knows this is happening. So those two clips were exactly
1:45:40
exactly the same length. I know. I don't think I've ever
1:45:43
accomplished that before. You're a genius. And that's why we call
1:45:48
this the best podcast in the universe. Now, before we go to
1:45:51
our break, a quick word about value for value. For 15 years,
1:45:57
this program has been running on value for value, the concept
1:46:00
being if you get value from listening to anything that we
1:46:03
do, and it could be just laughed, maybe you found a
1:46:06
friend, maybe a new relationship, maybe you went to
1:46:09
a meet up, maybe you had found something worth investing,
1:46:12
whatever it is. You just turn that into a number and send it
1:46:15
back to us. And that has worked very well for us for I mean, as
1:46:20
well as we could want. I mean, we have a consistent job. I'm
1:46:23
very happy. I love what I do. Something interesting happened
1:46:28
this past couple of days, with Steven Crowder, did you follow
1:46:33
this at all? Because a lot of people were tagged. Yeah.
1:46:35
You know, I never watched Crowder, but I was watching this
1:46:38
and I think I made a comment on the no agenda social. He looks
1:46:43
like and sounds like Ron Burgundy.
1:46:49
Well, yes, I wasn't going there. But he does. He's very pumped
1:46:54
up. He's very pumped up. So he's a he's a, I didn't know that. He
1:46:58
was originally a comedian. I didn't know that. And in what I
1:47:02
like, what I'd like Crowder, I like his change my mind stuff
1:47:05
where he goes out with the table. And you know, he makes us
1:47:08
Oh, yes, that's
1:47:09
a good bit. It's a great bit.
1:47:10
It's a very good bit. So apparently, he was with the
1:47:15
blaze. And he left the blaze. And he did this segment, which I
1:47:22
saw on YouTube. So he's still on Yeah, I thought he was kicked
1:47:24
off YouTube. But he's still always back on YouTube. I'm not
1:47:27
sure exactly what's happening. And he was very unhappy about
1:47:31
what he calls big con, as in big conservative. Yeah. And he and
1:47:37
he showed this contract, redacted. And the contract said
1:47:43
something to the effect of okay, and this was either a renewal
1:47:46
contract or a new contract. He was like, I'm not going to call
1:47:49
him which kind of pissed me off like, well, if you're going to
1:47:51
show contracts, why don't you tell us who it is. So we're all
1:47:55
guessing. You know, it's just from the blaze? Most people are
1:47:58
just guessing, right? Is it from rumble? I mean, who knows. But
1:48:03
he was he was mad, because he says the big conservative, they
1:48:07
just want to control messaging as well. And it was very
1:48:11
interesting take he showed the contract that said, if if your
1:48:16
show was taken off YouTube, then we cut 20% of the money we pay
1:48:21
you if the show was taken off
1:48:23
Apple, the actual numbers on there, they were in the 1000s
1:48:26
hundreds of 1000s of dollars as well. How much are they paying
1:48:29
this guy?
1:48:30
Well, interesting. You ask that? Because an answer came back now
1:48:34
and again. You know, we're thinking, like, you know, this
1:48:40
is the blaze or something or I actually I thought it would be
1:48:43
rumble, you know, because I know that you know they're paying
1:48:45
Glenn Greenwald and all kinds of other people. And And just
1:48:51
before I continue into the next part, everyone's tagging is good
1:48:55
value for value is the way to go. Man, you should do it value
1:48:57
for value. Totally cool. You can do it. And I'm sure he has the
1:49:00
mug club or something. I'm sure he could totally do that. He
1:49:03
could. Absolutely. He has the audience. He has the momentum he
1:49:07
could do value for value. And your question was answered last
1:49:11
night. Apparently this contract came from the daily wire. As a
1:49:17
lot of people guessed, and Jeremy boring the CEO. I have
1:49:23
it's 41 second clip P said let me just read to you the contract
1:49:28
which was just an opening negotiation. This is not the set
1:49:31
and done deal. This was just to get him to the table. And
1:49:34
let me let me mention something here in Iraq before you start
1:49:38
that. It was the dummy contract. He's pitching on his show this
1:49:45
Crowder guy moaning and groaning about the dummy contract and
1:49:49
anyone who's worked with contracts. You always throw his
1:49:52
stupid his contract out there to see if he's gonna someone's
1:49:55
gonna sign it. They don't just use these zero pushback on any
1:49:59
changes. You want to make? And I've done this in the book
1:50:02
business where you go in there, the guys throws the dummy
1:50:05
contract out in the say, you take the big markers. No, no,
1:50:09
no, no, no, no, no, no and no. And you give it back to me,
1:50:13
okay? This is not even a negotiation, it's just a can
1:50:18
use. It's like a game, can you spot the bowl crap into dummy
1:50:21
contract? It seems to me as though he's never seen a dummy
1:50:24
contract or even knows what it is.
1:50:27
Or whoever was reviewing it for him. Because in this 30 minute
1:50:31
video, boring says exactly that. He said, You know, this was, we
1:50:35
made a stab, this is just, you know, this is our opening, it
1:50:37
was just to get Crowder to the table. They sent it to his
1:50:40
agent. Now, the thing that's interesting about this, and that
1:50:46
Tina has a different she's she she's with him on this, which
1:50:49
was interesting, because I just see it differently. That Crowder
1:50:53
is saying, the way this contract reads they're no, they're in bed
1:50:59
with big tech, they want me to, they want to censor my speech.
1:51:05
Because if I say something wrong, and I'm kicked off of
1:51:07
YouTube, Spotify, Apple, or I think Facebook, they're going to
1:51:13
dock my money, they're going to take my pay away. So his
1:51:16
conclusion was, this is they're just trying to curtail my
1:51:22
speech. And which is why everyone said, dude, go value
1:51:26
for value. What's your problem that makes that makes sense. You
1:51:30
know, you can, no one can can curtail your speech. You can say
1:51:33
whatever you want, and maybe even stopped doing video, just
1:51:36
do audio, you know. So that was his take is he said that, you
1:51:40
know, clearly the daily wire was in bed with big tech to censor
1:51:44
him by docking his pay, which would make him unable to speak.
1:51:50
How do you read that? That's what
1:51:53
he said. Yeah, pretty sure that's what he was saying. Yeah.
1:51:55
Even though he should have said big Texan in bed with big
1:51:58
banking because as a result of money and writer.
1:52:01
Okay, so here's, here's the enter the shaggy dog story,
1:52:05
let's find out what the offer was opening offer of the dummy
1:52:08
contract.
1:52:09
And so here we go. Here was our offer a four year initial term
1:52:13
with two year renewal at DW sole discretion. That just means
1:52:17
Stephens going to work for DW for four years. And if it's
1:52:21
going really well, DW can retain him for an additional two years,
1:52:25
you want to take a guess yet?
1:52:28
5 million a year
1:52:31
to the fee. Remember, this is the minimum number that we
1:52:36
thought would get the conversation started with
1:52:37
Stephen $50 million for the initial term, plus $25 million
1:52:42
for the renewal term, extended paid in monthly installments,
1:52:46
like I say, a pretty big number. But we thought for talent like
1:52:50
Steven, this is probably the minimum number that's going to
1:52:53
get get us in the door so we can sit down and talk to him.
1:52:57
50 million 50 million for what what are we
1:53:02
doing wrong?
1:53:04
Hello. Hello, Jeremy.
1:53:05
Hello, Jeremy. Hello. Daily wire. 50 million. That's funny.
1:53:14
Now, the way
1:53:16
he's bitching about it, though, and this is the funny thing
1:53:19
about you see this with people that are somehow they get caught
1:53:22
up in some other world and some other dimension? And and the
1:53:26
numbers don't match normal normal numbers. No. And, and so
1:53:30
the and then they then they get haughty about it 50 million is
1:53:34
all they want to give me?
1:53:36
Well, his point was cuz you know, if you're whatever you're
1:53:39
making, if you know if we had to be doctor told, I think it was
1:53:41
like 60% could be docked if he was deep platformed everywhere
1:53:45
except the daily wire website. That still $6 million a year.
1:53:51
That's a lot of dollars. You know,
1:53:55
he's complaining.
1:53:57
I don't know. I was shocked by that, that. Like I understand,
1:54:01
like, you know, it's, you know, it's like half a million and you
1:54:04
got to pay your crew or maybe a million you got to pay your crew
1:54:07
because I think that's included in it. And then you get docked.
1:54:10
It's like, but man, I mean, I have to say I see it from the
1:54:16
daily wires perspective. They make their money by selling ads
1:54:20
that then are carried on iTunes and and Spotify and YouTube ad
1:54:28
reads and everything.
1:54:30
The funny thing is I noticed that thing in there but the he
1:54:32
has to be sincere something in his ad reads. There was some
1:54:36
note about
1:54:37
So bottom line is I'm actually happy we don't have because he
1:54:42
has to do 196 shows a year and now he has to be careful of what
1:54:47
he says if he doesn't want to hurt his own pocketbook. I
1:54:50
guess. It sounds like a raw deal on it sounds like it's great
1:54:54
with all this money, but I think I would prefer value for value.
1:54:58
Mainly because we have no meetings. So we have no
1:55:01
advertisers suck up jobs to do.
1:55:04
Yeah, that's really a pain in the ass but for 50 million bucks
1:55:09
I think you could stomach it. No, it's only four year deal. So
1:55:12
it's like 10 million to over $10 million a year to suck up on
1:55:15
some. Hey, how you doing?
1:55:17
No, hey, yeah,
1:55:18
like I couldn't do you could that's nice you know, once you
1:55:23
get those cufflinks
1:55:26
and with that I'd like to thank you for your currency in the
1:55:29
morning to the man who put the season the big con contract
1:55:32
which is a dummy one ladies and gentlemen say hello to my
1:55:34
friend, Mr. John
1:55:38

1:55:42
ships and see what's on the ground feet in the air subs in

1:55:48
morning to our trolls and the troll room who've been hanging
1:55:50
out working with us trolling along doing all the stuff that
1:55:54
they need to do, which is mainly trolling. And we had a problem
1:55:59
this morning with the troll counter it was broken it was
1:56:02
returning zero so let's count is 1831 could be it we're not sure
1:56:11
if it's correct, but seems to be working now. Seems to be working
1:56:15
1830 as low as broken then obviously broken. Everything's
1:56:21
low these days. It's January's what happens. Those are the
1:56:24
trolls which you can join in the troll room troll room.io You can
1:56:27

pertain to the show if you can't answer them. No joy for you.
1:57:26
Thank you to our artists for episode 1521. We titled that the
1:57:30
health scare system, which we thought was quite cute. And
1:57:35
capitalist capitalist agenda brought us just a groovy piece
1:57:40
of art the no agenda super shot, which was total cartoon drawing
1:57:45
of a triple headed syringe in beautiful comedic comic book
1:57:51
called colors. It just jumped off the page. I mean, I think we
1:57:57
were in agreement pretty quickly if I recall.
1:57:59
Yeah, there wasn't anything to compete with it. Just some other
1:58:02
stuff. That was interesting.
1:58:04
Well, we were we were sad about the the Corvette classified
1:58:09
roundy did a Corvette classic pacojet. First of all the
1:58:13
Corvette and Biden with the documents flying out had been
1:58:16
done several times. But he was it was too I think the comment
1:58:20
was is too bad. That didn't do a little more the Corvette logo
1:58:22
you could that could have been something even more fun if
1:58:25
you're not just adding the word classified.
1:58:29
Yeah, that was well, I didn't have any.
1:58:36
We're looking for oomph people are looking for oh, we're
1:58:39
looking for oomph. There were some brownies.
1:58:43
A brownie has been mellowed out by some woman friend. I believe
1:58:49
DC girl has mellowed him? Is that what you're saying? I don't
1:58:52
know. I don't know. Honey, what are you doing? I'm doing art.
1:59:00
Come back too bad.
1:59:03
Huh? So there wasn't anything else that was competitive with
1:59:10
the double jab, which was kind of funny piece. It was a good
1:59:13
idea to use another piece for the I use Joey's files, the
1:59:21
filing cabinet or the newsletter because of course the newsletter
1:59:24
is kind of about skift since and it has a long, long briefing
1:59:27
from one of our producers about how it classified information
1:59:32
supposed to be kept. Even though I did get a note this morning
1:59:35
from another producer who worked in intelligence and says I
1:59:38
suppose should by a deadline. He has a whole bunch of
1:59:41
corrections. Oh for it, and for the next day, not major but for
1:59:45
the next newsletter. It'll come it'll eventually be used
1:59:49
somehow. But it's so Joey's files which is Darren O'Neill
1:59:52
throw away. I don't want to call it that throw away But Darren,
1:59:59
Darren has zzs like, it's like, he's the perfect guy in an
2:00:05
advertising agency to just get something done.
2:00:08
Yeah, functional and very functional,
2:00:11
functional, but it's good. It's not like it's not like crap.
2:00:15
No, no, it's very usable. It's very usable. It's the one you
2:00:19
show the client as the second choice. We have this thank you
2:00:26
very much capitalist agenda and all the artists who do this
2:00:28
phenomenal work you can follow them and no agenda art
2:00:30
generator.com, almost 30,000 pieces now, since the when did
2:00:35
we start with the with our generator was that early on the
2:00:38
second iteration, we had a previous art generator that was
2:00:42
done by Brandy and wasn't Paul was somebody else. And that in
2:00:51
the beginning, early on, is the very beginning. We started doing
2:00:54
art somebody immediately the guys who did all their initial
2:00:58
art, there's two guys. And and they did, they created this
2:01:02
little website where they kept putting the art up and we could
2:01:05
pick from it. And then coutures decided at some point that it
2:01:09
was to kind of exclusive I guess, and he anyone could do
2:01:15
it. But it wasn't a very it wasn't a slick site like this
2:01:18
one. There was probably a femoral screw that now. Let's do
2:01:22
something better. And that was way. You know, it was, I think
2:01:25
couple 100 shows in before this one came up. Yeah, once we lost
2:01:28
that original art.
2:01:30
We lost a lot of early show stuff. Remember dropped.io?
2:01:35
Vaguely. Yeah. Yeah, that was like, that was where we were
2:01:39
saving the show notes, dropped.io and the clips and art
2:01:43
and then one day we woke up and it would have been purchased by
2:01:46
Facebook and they shut it down.
2:01:49
That's what's so great about technology.
2:01:51
We couldn't get anything back and like a Free for life. We're
2:01:54
never doing that again. That's what we thought. Thank you.
2:01:58
Again, catalyst agenda, all of the artists it's highly
2:02:00
appreciated. We believe that it really helps in people
2:02:04
discovering the show. It's something put it to look at when
2:02:08
we post it on social media. It's inviting people want to click on
2:02:11
it. And we think it's contributed enormously to the
2:02:14
show. So it is value for value which consists of time, talent
2:02:18
and treasure and the treasure. today comes from our executive
2:02:21

months. Can I get a job karma while you navigate the layoff
2:04:01
ridden tech industry? Thanks for all you do peace out.
2:04:06
I was reading that Amazon is letting yet another 18,000
2:04:09
People go.
2:04:10
Cool. Have a clip. I have a clip or oldest. Oh, let's do it.
2:04:14
Since we're here, why not? Let's let's turn this into content.
2:04:17
Yeah, it's a layoffs.
2:04:20
Let me see. I don't see.
2:04:22
economic slowdown, layoffs got it.
2:04:24
Managers that tech companies went on a frenzy of hiring for
2:04:28
set to satisfy demand for their products during the height of
2:04:32
the pandemic. Now, those that Microsoft have joined others in
2:04:36
laying off employees cutting 10,000 jobs. CEO Satya Nadella
2:04:43
says he's seen customers change how they spend their money. He
2:04:47
says some parts of the world are already in recession, and
2:04:50
organizations in every industry are exercising caution. He says
2:04:55
the decisions to reduce the workforce are difficult but
2:04:58
necessary, executive have said other technology companies have
2:05:01
made similar decisions over the past several months, though said
2:05:05
Amazon plans to layoff about 18,000 employees, those that
2:05:10
Facebook's parent company metal platforms about 11,000 and those
2:05:15
at Salesforce about 8000
2:05:18
Microsoft this morning 10,000 And I think the Amazon is 18,000
2:05:22
times to
2:05:25
the joke is Amazon makes nothing but sense. During the lock downs
2:05:30
and all the rest of it, people were ordering a lot of stuff
2:05:32
they weren't going out to some stores were closed. But
2:05:35
Microsoft, what's the lockdown got to do with anything? Are
2:05:39
they are they COVID have to do with anything their job to do?
2:05:42
I don't think the problem is COVID I think the problem is
2:05:45
recession has nothing to do with COVID Unless you want to say
2:05:50
COVID was the instigator of the recession but so that's about
2:05:53
60,000 tech workers and it's not people at the Amazon warehouse.
2:05:59
No, it's probably if they're smart is probably middle
2:06:02
management HR.
2:06:03
Yeah middleman is always below to help all these tech companies
2:06:08
get rid of them. But anyways have loads they have nothing but
2:06:11
bloat and then they use any excuse they can to get rid of
2:06:14
and when this is kind of a clean sweep don't even do the problem
2:06:17
I've always had is they don't even do a good job of it. They
2:06:21
just take a group and get rid of them
2:06:23
now. Yeah, well it's gonna be interesting in your area in
2:06:27
fact, I
2:06:27
think it was exhibited best by Elon Musk. Yeah, he's firing
2:06:31
people willy nilly. They don't know what he did. He has no idea
2:06:34
what any of them did
2:06:35
remember when that when it was Twitter's good? It's gonna fall
2:06:38
over it'll shut down tomorrow. Nope didn't have anyway here's
2:06:43
your jobs. Jobs, jobs and jobs let's stop Harmon. commas in

2:09:47
a raffle ticket. Because my fall deer hunting had kept us from

hosting a meet up from October through December. The raffle
2:09:53
prizes were all kinds of venison goodies from my hunting harvest.
2:09:56

so that they could afford to receive a raffle drawing ticket
2:10:02
we collect the 255 and cash on the day of the meetup delivered

2:22:01
just you munching on the mutton and meat, please go to no agenda
2:22:05
nation.com/rings and give us your size of your finger on the
2:22:12
thing that you want to wear the ring, and where we can send it

2:22:18
signet ring, you will receive sealing wax for which to seal
2:22:22
your important correspondence with your ring and a certificate
2:22:25
of authenticity. So on him, I guess we're sending out the
2:22:29
sealing wax and it comes with its own little stamp. And
2:22:33
someone was very confused. They said you know I got I got the I
2:22:37
got everything got my ring. But but then the stamp is like is
2:22:40
George Washington. George Washington? What are you talking
2:22:43
about? So I guess we send a guess a sealing wax comes with
2:22:48
its own little George Washington stamp. Have you heard about
2:22:51
this?
2:22:52
No. I've heard about somebody and they sent a picture. I have
2:22:55
no idea what that's all about. Maybe it's just part of the of
2:22:58
the sealing wax package.
2:22:59
That's what I'm thinking
2:23:00
it is because I think it's new.

2:29:42
particular wine. It's usually 698 which is seven bucks. It's
2:29:48
very they come in as I think Costco bought this Chateau is
2:29:53
the same chateau. If you look very carefully on the label at
2:29:55
the very bottom, the name of the Chateau appears and Yeah, very
2:30:00
small, four point type. It's a dynamite wine. It's always been
2:30:05

2:30:41
I traded wine for
2:30:43
the website wine for web or
2:30:47
drank a lot of Robert Craig's wines. They've gotten way, way
2:30:50
up in price since the early days.
2:30:52
But it was like 95 bucks on this is
2:30:55
not cheap anymore, but it's very good dining. Wellmade tastes
2:31:01
like a Cabernet supposed to taste and when anyway, so I was
