I think this is the Russians. Adam curry Jhansi Devora
26 2023. This is your award winning give our nation media
assassination episode 1524. This is no agenda. 90 seconds to
midnight and we're broadcasting live from the heart of the Texas
hill country here in orange and number six in the morning,
everybody. I'm Adam curry
from Northern Silicon Valley, where we're all wishing
australia i Happy australia day, January 26 and Jhansi Devorah.
Buzzkill. But that begs the question, Australia Day, I mean,
what exactly is Australia Day? Didn't that start off as a penal
colony? Do they celebrate that?
They celebrate? Well, they don't celebrate any of it because it's
white supremacy but
okay, of course it is because of them,
by the way is the day after tomorrow actually in Australia.
So the 26th has gone, but the it celebrates the 1788 landing of
the first British ship on the shores of Australia.
So they so they do they celebrate being prisoners,
it wasn't the first prison ship. Oh, I thought it was. It was an
after they landed there. And they said, This place looks
perfect for prisoners.
That makes sense. Okay, well, good on your homies. No. Well, I
mentioned in the opening John, but it is very dire. Once again,
we're down to the wire. It's bad, bad news everywhere the
science has spoken.
Now they call it the doomsday clock. And it symbolizes just
how close humanity is to self annihilation. Well, the closer
the clock gets to midnight, the more danger we're all in. Well,
the sad news is that in a couple of factors have resulted in that
Doomsday Clock advancing by 10 Second, meaning we're now just
90 seconds to midnight, that is the closest the clock has ever
been to midnight midnight.
I think it was actually I know it was 2021. It was
Yeah, what 100 100 seconds to midnight, let me say we are
closer to doomsday than ever before claim to the Bulletin of
Atomic Scientists, they created the doomsday clock at the
University of Chicago and base the countdown to midnight, on
how much time civilization has left.
That's a little different reports we got here. So like
before we annihilate ourselves is what they turned it into. Now
this was this old report was from 2020. That's how much
civilization has left. Let's talk to a scientist, of course,
symbolizing the end. Well, let's find out more now from Suzanne
McKinney, who's a member of the science and security board at
the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. That's the bulletin,
which the doomsday clock is set by each year. Now, Susan, thank
you so much for joining us. You were one of the speakers on
today's panel, which this rather bleak announcement was made.
Just tell us how was this decision reached to put the
clock forward by 10 seconds. Oh, John,
what do you think the problems are in the world that made the
clock hop forward? 10 seconds to two ultimate peril and doom?
Yeah, that would be one. Yeah, that's my there's a lot. There's
actually the added one and the one that was added or Sonic
missiles. Well, good
evening. And thank you so much for having me. What I can well
is the science and security board at the Bulletin of the
Atomic Scientists, we spend a considerable amount of time
debating and deliberating over the threats and the challenges
that we are seeing across our global community.
Man, I love the scientists that just wasting money. And so
when we were setting the time on the doomsday clock, as always,
we considered the threat of nuclear war, we consider
emerging technologies such as biological threats. And we also
consider climate change as factors that go into the waiting
of the doomsday clock.
But wait, there's more. Could there be more
in addition to those three factors?
Come on, John, you know what it is?
oh, no, man much.
that would have been a good one.
One of the things that also contributed to the clock moving
closer to midnight, was the Russian war on the Ukraine. And
was a by the way, the scientist says the Ukraine love that.
also contributed to the clock moving closer to the midnight
was the Russian war on the Ukraine, Ukraine. So it was a
combination of things that cause us to move the clock the closest
to midnight that it has ever been.
My question would be what's that really a 10 second move. I mean,
you could shouldn't have been like an 11 Second. He's morons.
You know, just heard this.
Did you hear an American report about this? I didn't get one. I
a report from it's not on this, but I gotta report it has run
The old dates real information when we're all going to die, you
know, on the money stuff instead of this vague
thing does not from tick tock. Well, I
mean, but there's a clock involved. Oh, yeah, there's Oh
yes, there is a clock. I went to my favorite pie or one of my
favorite podcasts, the Canadian prepper. I have not heard this
podcast. I haven't heard it either. till last week by what's
It's now favorites, a top top.
So he had on a retired professor named Guy McPherson, who's a
doomsday guy if there ever was he's out of the University of
Arizona, and he's a professor emeritus. And I liked the way
that Canadian prepper pronounces it as M or S or something some
Emeritus, let's say Mr. Register,
but this guy does. I don't know if the Canadians in general say
Mr. Rattus. I sincerely doubt it, but I do know there's a lot
of weird pronunciations. So let's hear and this is just part
one. The second part we'll have the actual date of our doom.
I'm looking for this clip. I do not
I am McPherson. Ah,
we go. Here we go. Hi, folks. Canadian
prepper. Here I got a very special guest on the channel
today, Dr. Guy McPherson. He is Professor Emeritus.
emeritus. He's an emeritus MRI and
By the way, your favorite podcast has a great fade out of
the of the opening tune. That's that's real subtle.
Preference. Here I got a very special guest on the channel
today, Dr. Guy McPherson. He is Professor Emeritus of the
University of Arizona. He studied natural resources,
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Since we last spoke, I
think it was four or five years ago, I think it was 20, either
2018 or 2017. We've had record setting wildfires around the
world, especially here in Canada, we've seen droughts on
every continent, we have seen biblical flooding, especially in
the West of Canada called flooding. We've seen heat waves
that I've never before seen in my lifetime that touch 54
degrees here in BC, last year in the town, where it was
registered, burned down the day afterwards.
It's good thing we got that recording before the burn down.
Yes, it's it's otherwise we never would have known right?
We've had a pandemic, we've had an energy crisis, we've had a
financial crisis. And of course, now we're on the cusp of world
war three. So my question to you, Professor is, how much time
do you think we have left?
You know, I get asked that almost every day, and I am
certain that we will lose habitat for human animals.
Shortly after we have an ice free Arctic Ocean. Now, an ice
free Arctic Ocean was projected to occur in 2018, plus or minus
three years, in one of the most renowned and conservative peer
reviewed journals, the annual review of Earth and Planetary
Sciences. So I'd say we dodged a few bullets. Did he say human
Yeah, he refers to us as human.
And that's like MRI notice. Now,
I've stopped it there because I want to point out that this
conservative Journal said that we're going to have Arctic ice
free or ice cream 2018 plus or minus two years or three years,
three years, and they were off. So somehow we dodged the bullet.
Well, how about the fact that this prediction was wrong? Does
anybody consider the possibility that this will be my theme for
today's show? That the experts were wrong to begin with in this
whole thing's nonsense, but that's the dress that's
gonna be your theme for today's show. So that's different from
anything we ever do any other show?
I notice I'm in mono, by the way, I don't know if that's
gonna. People listening.
Oh, I don't think so. But I want you to feel comfortable. So
there we go. No, no, no, no. Anyway, so this guy now he goes
on with the second. The second Yes. second clip is he'll give
us an actual date of our doom.
Oh, go get it. Get your calendars out people get your
we will not have an ice free Arctic this year, according to a
forecast by the US Naval Postgraduate School. And that
seems to be quite reliable in its six month ensemble forecast.
So I think we dodged that bullet this year. Now, there are, of
course, a few other things that can cause loss of habitat for
humans, too. And the peer reviewed literature already
indicates that we are losing habitat for vertebrates. And for
mammals around the world.
I'm sorry, what is that for? For birds? What do you say?
vertebrates? Vertebrates already
indicates that we are losing habitat for vertebrates, and for
mammals around the world. So I'd say we're close but naming a
specific day, you know, I have complete confidence that there
won't be a human being on the planet in 2030. Oh, I have
indicated that 2026 is likely to be loss of humans as well.
Right on let's write that 2030 As if we didn't know it.
2030 and 20 2060s get the big dates. He's got both of the
classic numbers that we've been following.
It's the 2030 Club, which we set up in 2014. Knowing that fully
well that this will be the date because we actually know stuff.
I thought it was 2002 I thought was 2027 was that was the was
the no new new
big date. Oh,
I thought I must have been confused but okay. Well, we have
2030 is our doomsday. That's it. There's the AES confident, and
he's the expert, that there will not be a human on the planet
by 2030. Yeah, well, I will say, I will say that the way things
are going with food, which, of course is being adapted at
breakneck, breakneck speed. To combat climate change, it's very
likely if we eat the stuff that they're talking about. That's
right, we won't be Elijah. Here's a couple of examples.
You've heard of plant based protein powder. But what if the
next alternative was made out of plastic and there's new research
that could make it a reality?
Alright, CCL cat talks with scientists make it a reality. So
let's go check it out, since that could help like hunger and
pollution, liquefied hunger, pollution and life,
food shortages are worsening around the world. And the
plastic pollution crisis continues to intensify. What if
It's exactly what it is. A it's a twofer. You get rid of the
plastic, it's actually a three for you get rid of the plastic,
there'll be no more straws in the turtle's nose. And we all
die to intensify.
What if there was one solution to both of these problems, and
Michigan scientists thinks there could be
what we're trying to do is to use microbes to take plastic and
other inedible plant material and turn that into something
that's nutritious. The idea
is to turn components of plastic into protein and other nutrients
like fats and sugars. Yeah,
this is really the theme is nutritious is going to be
nutritious. In addition to that, he will also taste great, and it
will feel good in your mouth.
It looks and tastes like chicken and it is chicken.
This is a great report. This is from France 24.
It looks and tastes like chicken. And it is chicken.
Except for the fact that it was grown in huge steel that's we
call the company's sales pitch.
With this is what is their name, their name is upside meats,
oh giving it up with nutria or becoming vegetarian or vegan.
Like I said, it's not a meat alternative. It's meat that's
grown from real animal cells. So what we do is we take really
high quality animal cells from let's say, a cow, or a pig, or a
chicken or a lobster.
It's new, the lobster is new. I have not heard this on the fake
meat menu yet. And we
look for cells that can continue to grow outside the animal in a
very robust and a healthy way like cancer.
We're basically eating cancer. Yeah, that's
a good start.
It took the company four years to get the green light from the
US Food and Drug Administration. Now, it's hoping to sell its
products to restaurants by 2023, and two grocery stores by 2028.
But first, we'll need further rubber stamps from the US
Department of Agriculture.
I love that rubber stamp because yeah, of course, I mean, it's
already it's kind of good to go. It'll be approved by 2028. So we
can eat it for two years and then die giving this guy you
know, kudos. And it's just rubber stamp. It's not like we
have to approve anything. It's good to go. rubbers rubber
we think the initial pricing will be premium premium to
organic premium and we
get a cost more than the real chicken
No, wait this. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, this is this is there's
here pricing will be premium premium to organic. And we also
expect the price of conventional meat to continue to grow up
significantly. It keeps going up cultivated meat price comes down
and there's a sweet spot in the next five to 10 years where we
intersect and we become more affordable than conventional
Cultivated meat could also reduce the environmental impact
of livestock, which are responsible for around 15% of
the world's greenhouse gas emissions. The EU along with
Israel and other countries are currently working on a
regulatory framework for Lummi products.
There's a term for this. They've come up with a new term
if you're going to lusion
Climate terian I love that. Right? I know I
would love it. Climate there's another one which is regenda
voere. But I like climate terian better. And as as a new as a
newly minted climate terian Bubi you'll be inundated with great
new products for instance, we have carbon neutral, I'm sorry,
the term is it's called Neutral Milk. It is. It is carbon
neutral. It is of course data driven. It is funded by data
data driven milk. Funded by Bill Gates and fellow billionaire
Mark Cuban. They put $4 million into neutral milk and they have
a just announced a second round of funding from celebrity
investors including John Legend LeBron James Kevin Love who's
the Portland now usual suspects I mean, did you get I want John
Legend to be drinking this day in day out drink it drink more
They Oh, that's funny because I have a Bill Gates clip of
another thing he's doing with cows.
Let me just give you the price. What do you think this will cost
a half gallon?
A half gallon? phony baloney milk should be a buck
$5.49 a half gallon?
I think I have the gauge clip as well. So let's play it because
this is a good one.
Bill Gates has decided to invest in a way to stop cows from
burping so much. He's put some 11 million euros into an
Australian firm ruminate, which is tackling How to Lower methane
coming from cows specifically from cow burps. For
surprisingly, surprisingly enough, it is cow's burps, and
to a lesser degree their flatulence that accounts for
most of their the methane that they emit.
Is this surprising to this news model where she been? We all
know it's flatulence, but we know the burps of the big the
big bad methane spreader.
It's why most of these friends 24 Women don't seem to
Now curbing these bodily functions are important because
methane has over a 100 year period. It has around 30% more
of a warming effect and co2. Now the funding from the Gates
investment firm will help the company work on replacing
replicating seaweed which has actually been shown to lower
methane gases in cow burps such an advanced could eventually
transform some of the dire effects that the red meat
industry has on the environment. That's fascinating. I knew about
the flatulence to speak politely but not about the burps is
actually more burps than flatulence. I knew
Oh no. Oh, my God is fascinating.
Oh, no, no, oh my goodness, who knew? Oh, yeah, I've
got another clip. If you don't have any more
I will I have that same clip I have. This will be a little
inter intermezzo. It's from the BBC, and kind of backs up
everything that we're that we're playing here
phonology to remove the planet warming greenhouse gas, co2 from
our atmosphere must be urgently wrapped up. That's according to
leading climate experts in a new report. It does need some
explanation. So let's take you to our environment correspondent
Jonah Fisher. John plan was that we were going to plant a lot
more trees. That's what we needed to
do. Oh, no, this is ridiculous. Trees are no good
rid of co2 in our atmosphere. What are these scientists
saying? Now? What
What the scientists are saying is that can only be part of the
solution that the problem is so severe that and that even if we
do manage to massively cut the amount of carbon dioxide that
we're putting into the atmosphere at the moment, that
nature will not be enough on its own to Karti. So at the moment,
we have trees, forests, absorbing carbon dioxide from
the atmosphere, soil under the right conditions, does the same
thing too. But what these scientists are saying in their
report is that technology more technology will be needed in the
future to take more of that carbon dioxide out of the air at
the moment. These technologies are relatively new, some are in
the process of being deployed. But effectively what the what
these scientists are saying is right now we need to be putting
more money into developing these technologies because further
down the line 510 20 years down the line, we may well need them
to get more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and
potentially even to try and help reduce global temperatures if
they've continued to if as expected they continue to heat
up at an alarming rate.
Oh, alarming. Mother Nature can't do it herself. John, we
all know it's
alarming too. I'll tell you one thing you know that bad
manufacturing that chicken goo I think that's gonna lay an egg.
Well, the problem is it the programming is so strong I I can
easily see over socialized under educated people saying guy you
know, hey, it's chicken. It's chicken What are you talking
about? Like you said it's like a cancer cell it's chicken. And
already the EU has approved for human consumption. I'm reading
from the article from Deutsche Avella the maggot like larvae of
lesser mealworms a type of shiny black beetle and house crickets
will become the third and fourth insects that can be sold as food
for people in the European Union and eight more applications
await approval. So if they're going to slip it in anyway
the poor people in the EU
Yeah, yeah. That's their perfect example of
why don't they at least put out a cookbook like the French did
during the French Revolution on how to eat rats?
Ah, no, that's disgusting. It was
a gourmet item during the French no that's that's worked up a lot
of rat recipes.
That's disgusting. We want bugs rats are just uncouth. Not
Well listen to this now this is a terrible clip in terms of the
quality but I think he can understand it. This is the Eat
clip. Try to hold on TV don't listen. Okay, and
taking it to an extreme and this is all based on W E F
recommendations which include a lot of screwball things. When
mainly get rid of your pets that are causing climate change.
The W E F, which has ordered mainstream media outlets to
begin pushing the narrative wants to introduce an
international policy that would require the majority of pet
owners to euthanize their animals. CNN always at the
forefront in pushing the globalist agenda has begun
urging its viewers to starve their pets to death. In an
effort to combat climate change. CNN published an article on
their website recently entitled our pets are part of the climate
problem. These tips can help you minimize their carbon
footprints. In the article The liberal sadist, CNN argue that
the meat heavy diet of many household pairs is causing
planet warming gases to be released into the atmosphere.
responsible pet owners should trade in their best friend for a
turtle for the planet. snakes, turtles and reptiles are really
low impact. CNN suggests your kitty cat and pooch CNN explains
are going to have to eat bugs just like you assuming Klaus
Schwab allows you to keep them at all in the future. Bloomberg
another mouthpiece for the global elites jumped onto the
bandwagon at the same time urging pet owners to let their
pets die to fight inflation. Hollywood celebrity Emma
Thompson has gone even further telling pet owners to eat their
own paths to fight the so called climate crisis.
I need a clip of Emma Thompson saying eat your dog. Or I've got
to find your pussy. I mean either one she's we want you to
clip of her saying something about eating your pet. This is
wrong. But listen, this is Yahoo Yahoo News, by
the way is belated for you. Hey, go. Yahoo what
Yahoo News which is taken directly from Reuters. So you
know when it's on Reuters, that's when that's where the
programming starts. It's it's the official news service.
Reuters, Washington, you writers. Once the stuff of
science fiction lab grown meat could become reality in some
restaurants in the United States as early as this year. Now, we
know that these lab grown meat outfits have been working with
herders. In a show of confidence. Some of now I'll
read the whole thing. Executives at cultivated meat companies are
optimistic that meat grown in massive steel vats could be on
the menu within months after one company wants to go ahead from a
key regulator in a show of confidence and pay off money.
Some of them assigned up high end chefs like Argentine Francis
Melman and Spaniard, Jose undress, to eventually showcase
the meats in their high end eateries. See this is this and I
don't know if it'll work, but they thought the COVID with
celebrities was so successful, that they're doing the celebrity
chefs, they're gonna have celebrities, like the ones we
talked with, with the Bill Gates milk, they're going to have they
think that celebrities will push it on people and those people
will buy it hook line and sinker. It works. I think it
to know in fact, it's always worked as the influencers I
mean, that's why they pay we don't even know who becomes semi
famous amongst a certain crowd. Yeah, it'll work in the Jose
Andrus will do anything for money. You know him. I've seen
him on TV. I don't have never met him. That's close enough.
But he looks like he's one of those, you know, he's a good
shape. He's a good chef. That is a promoter. Yeah, yeah. And me
to show me the money
when Gordon Ramsay falls for it, then I know it'll all be over. I
don't think good.
With Gordon boy, they'd have to really throw a lot of money at
think he would ultimately do it for money, don't you think?
Yeah, I think he
would do it. Although I think he might ultimately figure you can
make more money by by railing against it. Well, as you pan, I
think the idea that you're eating a tumor. Basically,
they're growing, the only thing you can grow by itself is a
tumor. I think that's one good countermeasure that would work
for promotional purposes. Would you like a tumor? With your
fried with the rich like french fries with your tumor?
We need a better word than tumor. What's what's even worse
to a tumor is a good word for something that's repulsive.
like Tumeric with your tumor today, man. So in the Climate
Change Game, a couple of things are taking place that would that
of course we have to just deal with because climate change, the
Netherlands is now shutting down pretty much the largest gas
field in Europe, which was north of off the coast of the
Netherlands thronging it.
They're shutting down. Wait, before I continue, I don't think
I heard you right. during a crisis because of Ukraine and
Russia and cutting off all gas supplies, and one of the
pipelines being blowed up. They decided to stop producing gas
the Dutch go RT, the Dutch government plans to close the
Froning and gas field this year, despite Europe's precarious
supply, position, cloning, it is the largest gas field in Europe.
The field is dangerous a government official from The
Hague, the Financial Times, and the government has no plans to
boost production from it. We won't open up more because of
the safety issues is politically totally unviable. But apart from
what I'm not going to do it because it means that you
increase the chances of earthquakes. Now this is what's
hilarious. For 15 years, people who live there, including voyage
zero, had complained about their houses breaking apart from the
earthquakes from the from the gas storage, and they you know,
they drill holes, and they said they're fracking. And now now
all of a sudden, no, we can't have this news as to stop.
So wait a minute. So what you're saying is the timeline is that
this has been going on forever. And these earthquakes have been
annoying everybody. But now that there's a shortage? Let's shut
up doing that shut them
down. Yes. Well, in addition to that, just as a fun throw away,
the British Parking Association is having a very big problem
with the weight of electric cars causing collapses of parking
That was especially the you know, those they have a lot of
those garages, especially in Europe, I think we have them
here too, but not as many where they have whether you drive your
car under load, lot, conveyor and it Jacks it up into the air.
And then they they stack these cars in a small area. And
they're all kind of stacked up those things. Probably have
weight limitations, they'll pancake
beautifully. Just like tower seven. And the final one, I have
two things I say oh yes. This already happened in China. But
now Microsoft is of course going to help suppress climate change.
Now we've got to we've got to bring down the temperature. So
they've announced that gamers have the Xbox console as a part
as in order to fight climate change. They will end
Microsoft's intention to become zero waste, they will
automatically be switching gamers into shutdown mode to
conserve energy. So they will shut
this as you're about to win the game and kill the opponent and
get all kinds of accolades. It'll shut down on you
but the good news is for every two consoles that switched to
shut down for one year will save the equivalent amount of carbon
removed by one tree planted and grown for a decade. So you're
actually growing a mythical tree by by not playing your game or
these guys that's the it's not a big deal except for Office is
not a huge moneymaker. X Xbox isn't a really big for them.
I think it is doing quite well with it. Yeah,
I know. So they want to I want to think about that. Just seems
idiotic. Yes. It's a great time to be a gamer until it's not
alright, okay. All right. Well, I
guess that's clarify climate, right?
Yes, I think it does. I think it does. Finish on climate change
your dog. It's my favorite thing. Yeah,
I was a good one. All right. Well, the obvious the obvious
next move seems to be oh, wait, actually, I should play these
these two last clips. These are kind of short.
In tonight's Healthwatch we have important information for
parents about baby food. The FDA today proposed new levels for
lead in baby foods cutting the allowable level by about 25%.
How about no lead in baby food? Is that a concept
which led to doing and baby food? That's what I'd like to
know. Well, they're not going to explain
allowable level by about 25% to 20 parts per billion or less now
that would apply to baby foods made with fruits, vegetables and
dry cereals, but not cereal puff and teething biscuits, which
have been found to have some of the highest lead levels. The
author of a 2019 report that found dangerous levels of lead
in nearly 95% of manufactured baby food says the FTAs
proposals don't go far enough to protect children. But at least
now you know,
maybe not feed your your child manufactured baby food. Just a
thought doesn't really know where this
lead is coming from. I think from the from the background
lead that exists in all fruits and vegetables are what we don't
don't explain anything. This is a terrible report. But that's
mediocre network gave you that report.
CBS CBS Nora O'Donnell CBS ABC gave me this one
farming group is calling for a federal investigation into the
soaring price of eggs to look for potential price gouging. The
biggest egg producer call main foods reportedly posted a major
increase in quarterly profits compared to a year ago. But
producers say bird flu along with higher demand are driving
prices higher. Bird flu has killed nearly 58 million
chickens and turkeys since last March. experts aren't even sure
how much longer the outbreak will last.
Mimi has some thoughts on this she's working on a piece
oh good to participate all I promote I hope the excellent
outstanding too many eggs book now available to many eggs.com
I couldn't have said it better. Odds are it's what we do for
each other John. So she says that one of the big egg
producers might be responsible for this date for this bullcrap.
It may be the whole thing may be rigged.
Wait a minute, that's what I said. And you excoriated me for
did. I'm here to apologize.
Where's Mimi's apology? I want she told you what was going on?
And you put me in my place. You're wrong. I don't know where
that comes from. Well, it doesn't matter because we need
to stop eating eggs because and I'm sure you've seen this is a
good one blood blue compound found in eggs linked to an
enhanced risk of blood clotting.
Yeah, it could be because there's no reason that the VAX
is causing this problem. Oh, it's
eggs, man. It's the eggs. Yeah, it's crazy. The eggs? Let me see
if I have anything else on the eggs.
I think we've run out yes,
we have run out of week but we could move out a plug in there
though we could Well, let's move to some some adverse events. You
know it. It truly is amazing how many how much excess death there
is all over the world. I mean, really all over the world. It's
just and people are flabbergasted by it. And you
know, obviously because of the lockdowns and COVID Fatal
arrests in Australia are on the rise. Doctors say COVID damaging
effect on the heart is driving serious cardiovascular problems.
More than 10,000 Australians died of heart disease in the
first eight months of 2020 to 17%. Higher than expected in a
normal year. disease experts say these statistics are concerning.
But not a surprise.
Not a surprise. Let us know nice.
Don't get surprised. There was the My wife is talking to one of
their planning commission meetings to somebody she ran
into this character when it
was she she she's still in local government up there. Yeah, I
look at the fools. I pity them who have to go up against me,
So she runs into this guy who is a house mover. And because we
have this little house that JC and Jesse live in my mom's old
house, and it's a small bungalow, but if you could jack
it up and put a whole new floor underneath is the way to go is
instead of adding on this way you shouldn't find a place and
your jacket up a floor and then put another house
the whole house up so you don't have to have to request planning
You still have to, I think they're still planning issues.
But it's not as not. It's cheaper. It's by far cheaper
backing up your house is cheaper. It's like way cheaper
because of the roof. Oh, you put a roof on a house, it's very as
expensive as busy building a floor. Yes. And according to
this guy who's the expert, because he's been moving houses
and his dad has been moving houses, their house movers. They
say the one of the greatest ways to get a house is to find
somebody has to do is going to tear down a house and buy the
house and move it to a piece of property and throw in a sewer
and get a power to it. And you can buy some of these houses
that are going to be demolished, and find what occurs not a piece
of crap, but something that's still reasonably in good shape.
You can buy these things for like $200 the house because the
demolition price is so high, right? It's cheaper than
demolishing to get rid of the house that houses pulled away
from the by the House Movers and dropped someplace else. This is
the way to go. I can't wait to do that.
If you don't mind, I'll pump the brakes on that one.
But you can pump the brakes all you want because I don't think
you need a house. But I'm just it's it would be part of a
housing shortage. A solution? And and it's turns out that the
that there's laws been put in place. So if your house has
moved there now they're making the you have to inspect it as
though it was a new house, which is causing issues in some
do we get from people dying? And I'll get I'm
sorry, I went I went on that kind of a long sidetrack. The
guy says to her, he says, Did you ever get the vaccine? She
says no. And he says, Well, I did. And I've got myocarditis.
Yay. And he says, You know what? He says, what really pisses me
off is not the myocarditis as much as the fact that I was
suckered into getting this.
Well, here's, there's a CDC report, apparently, I've not
confirmed it myself. That 118,000 Young people youth died
after receiving their vaccine. Global Life, which is a life
insurance company, I think. Stock GL on the New York Stock
Exchange. They say hi, excess claims are ahead. So I don't
know if that's a short or not, I don't want to recommend
if there was jack up the prices to make them probably will.
Here's one disability data reveals alarming health crisis
of the employed. And this is kind of interesting, because the
the Federal Reserve and in the United States, the central bank,
they they use unemployment as a I think as a kind of a big
indicator, whether inflation is going down or not. And they just
can't get that to go down because maybe there's not enough
people to work at all.
Well, I have three work reports related. I don't know if this
has anything to do with what you're going to talk about, but
this is the job engagement problems in the United States. I
have two clips. Yeah, let's do
that. And then we'll just remind me to go back to where I was.
No, you'll remember Yeah.
Okay, job engagement in the USA
Here we go. American workplaces have a problem. A growing number
of people just aren't bad into their jobs. Is
this NPR? Yeah, fantastic to just I can't
use NTD anymore, which has obscure stories American buddy
apologizes to me now what? Who, me? The artists how the
artists John's all pissed off.
American workplaces have a problem a growing number of
people just aren't bad into their jobs. A new Gallup report
finds less than a third of people are engaged with their
work. As it appears Andrea Chu reports. That is not just an
issue for workers, it could hurt their companies. This drop
in employee engagement started in the pandemic and it's only
getting worse. Jim Harter is gallops chief workplace
The younger workers in particular, are less connected
to their organization less satisfied with their
organization overall, young
millennials and Gen Zers reported feeling less cared for
at work less heard fewer of them. Development, fewer have a
best friend at work harder says that's become an important
predictor of whether someone might recommend their company
the word consider looking for a different job.
Having a friend at work matters more now than it did pre
Gallup found engagement fell most among people who could work
remotely but have to work on site. But the survey found
another problem with fully remote workers. A growing number
of them are now in a middle zone that Jim harder equates to quiet
quitting the show up to the minimum required but not much
else. And they'll still look for other opportunities out there.
These findings don't surprise Tanvi Sinha. She's in audit
manager at the accounting firm Matthews Carter and voice in
Fairfax, Virginia. She started her career back when everyone
was in the office every day, even Saturdays and the busy
you develop that, that relationship with people, you
make friends with people you're spending most of the time at
work, you're going out for lunches. So those are the things
that you're missing. You know, now that coming
to the office is optional. But it's not just about being social
synopses, it can help your career to get a holistic view of
working remotely. You're working on one project, you don't even
know what kind of other projects your firm does, or what kind of
other people you can do working with you have very little
Yeah, I think we saw this happening. And we understand
certainly younger people who, you know, maybe their first or
second job out of the gate, which may not be exactly what
they want, you know, career wise. They were at home working
on computers, and very disassociated from everything.
And also, there was too much money, you know, you got STEMI
checks everywhere you get, I think in New York, even in
Texas, if you aren't on unemployment insurance, which
was three months, I guess, it's on par with 65 to $70,000 a year
salary. So you know, the best thing you can get us fired from
something so I might as well just be quiet quitting and be a
douche. Get fired, get three months unemployment go back to
work. This has now become, I think just a way of the world.
And what they really need is they need a good depression.
A lot of people like, I don't even know if that's going to
help them. I think part of the problem is, is the work ethic,
which was created we've been called you can't get a job I
when I was a kid, oh, here we go. We go. Here we go.
Hey, people come for the deconstruction they stay for
When I was a kid, you could get work. I was a paperboy with two
routes. I had a shopper route in a daily newspaper route. And
that was when I was in grammar school. And then when I was in
high school, you know you would get summer jobs in factories,
paying you good paying union, as Biden would put it paying you
and John union jobs in a factory during the summer for three
months at work. And you'd have enough money allotted. I knew a
tiny kid and a couple of kids in high school, they bought new
cars. One of them had a Corvette in high school. And he got it
from working, you know, summer jobs in part time, because you
could get these jobs. And then you would get kind of you could
see the benefits of having the jobs Corvette. And you would you
would keep this ethos in your system and you would work for
money. And you did work for satisfaction. Oh, I'm getting a
job so I could feel satisfied. You weren't working for
satisfaction so you could feel good about yourself and and you
felt part of society, the sheep job that wasn't paying enough?
No, you wanted to make good money, not for satisfaction, but
say goodbye stuff that is over.
Yep. And but also you did not have a credit card. You did not
have the easy access to credit that people have today. So you
either had the money or you check it you either hit checks,
either had the money or you didn't and you want a Corvette
and there's not going to be on layaway bro is not going to be
on well layaway actually did exist. Of course, you had no
credit. So that's another part of the problem. When I was a
kid, here we go. I too had a paper route when I was 15 and I
would illegally ride the moped around town and along the Amstel
dike, which is where a lot of
you had it. I had to drive a pedal bike. No, I was
doing it illegally. But I did it for in the morning. Now of
course newspaper delivery is no longer a job. So we have to we
can't really use that. But I did do other things. Such as I
worked on farms, I gathered potatoes and turnips. I worked
in the Rose nursery where you'd sort the roses. And my favorite
job was a with a blacksmith. I learned how to shoot horses,
which is again it's not really a modern job anymore, but I also
worked for betches Bard mum and I would help fix cars. I would
help. I was extremely good at taking a Volkswagen Beetle
engine out by myself within 20 minutes getting in is a whole
different deal. But also those jobs are also not there anymore.
You can't get a you can't be a mechanic for modern cars. You
can't do anything to them without the whole diagnostics
kit and everything and even they could
date you for example at the high school up in Port Angeles are
taking daughter shop class out because it cost him imagine
where you need to teach gender studies. Yes, this is a taking
that out of And yes, you do need to, but that's what the auto
shop class should would have provided. They'd have all those
fancy machines and read outs and smog devices that things that
tell you how much you have your cars qualifies in California.
And I think
we're discovering here that every single job you and I had
as kids, pretty much no longer exists. And we're shooting does
exist. It's not as big as it was back then a per delivery does
exist very small, very small. Operation, okay. But
there's other things that have cropped up in the mean,
you can't work at McDonald's because your mom already works
Which reminds me, by the way, so I'm watching the youtubes. And
they're like, thank you. I got that. I know she never got
delayed an egg joke, so never even Yeah. So I'm watching this
this in Texas. There's a YouTube video of this automated
McDonald's. Yes, that is just a robot McDonald's. Yeah. Hello.
Have you seen this? Yes. And you know why is because everyone
said I want $25 An hour they went, Okay. Look at look at my
here's the thing. So I was go and I've noticed this because a
couple of times, I've gotten a Mac Cafe because there's like
you get the giant one for the same price as the little one.
And if I'm like feeling the low caffeine caffeine hit I met stop
at a McDonald's and pick one up through the drive thru, or an
ice cream cone. If it's hot, I'll do that too. And even
though they're overpriced now, so I don't do it anymore. But I
noticed this about some months back they said I'm at a window
ordering through the drive thru and they said, Would you like to
order that on your phone? At the drive thru? At the drive thru?
And I'm saying no,
we hear we sound like two douche boomers right now. We need to be
productive. This is not helping that we're arguing.
Douche Boomer thing. We're going to be that anyway. I'm thinking
this was all part of the strategy to get even though
you're already there. You can just what's the Why do I need to
use my phone for this is to get people to use us to using the
phones that the robots can serve you? Yes, yes, me? Yes, you can
buy a McDonald's for the cash. If it's a robot,
John, we have a lovely little town here. Fredericksburg,
Texas. Stores are and restaurants have been closing.
For one reason. And one reason only they cannot get people to
work. They can't get them to work. They can't get them. Now
granted, there's also very little affordable housing here.
But they can come in from Kerrville you can come in from
other places and it's not like traveling half an hour is an
outrage to get to work. But they don't want to and this How long
have we talked about universal basic income this is just where
it has to go. This is that this is the this is the strategy
because the lawyer you won't even need lawyers anymore. You
don't need a doctor you got you got a telemedicine where a
provider will talk to you and then prescribe some pills. And
all these jobs are the end is nine. You know what we may be
2030 Man and be dead. The
Gallup survey backs that up across age groups and no matter
where people were working, it found that employees were less
connected to the broader purpose of their companies also less
clear about what's expected of errors. Tim harder says that's
You can almost equate it to employees becoming a little bit
more like gig workers who aren't
as loyal to their employers who aren't in it for the long haul.
I believe that companies are having a reckoning
Stephanie Francis is Chief People Officer at Lyra health,
which provides mental health services to companies with all
the quiet and we'll quitting going on. She says companies are
now realizing that workers want something different.
I just gotta stop for a second because the troll room is
saying, Yeah, who wants to drive 30 miles for 295 an hour? Excuse
me. $22 An hour plus tips for a waitress in a diner or waiter.
Okay, so do get your facts straight and expect something
We're going to return where what work means is being redefined.
And it's being challenged. Right. What worked in the past
isn't going to work. And what makes it hard is that no one
truly has a playbook
fria says focusing on wellness is key to her engagement and
retention. What she's hearing from workers is this
I still want to engage in the workplace but I want to do it in
a way that is convenient and palatable
note Oh boy.
The accounting firm were timely sent how works is trying to find
a good balance. People aren't required to be in the office but
managers like Sinhagad do encourage their teams to come in
and preferably on the same days
pick a few days you know mingle with people talk to people
synthesize techniques. She can help. She does set up regular
video calls with our team members to check in. But even
so, there are pitfalls,
some people who are hired in COVID. I mean, I went to work
after a long time, and I couldn't even recognize that
this is the person. So So that's bad. And my partner,
Jim harder at Gallup says good managers are now more important
than ever. They're the ones who can make sure employees know
what's expected of them, and help employees feel cared for.
Yeah, there's a lot of this via my work doesn't, doesn't
determine who I am. I've heard this a lot.
Well, that's a plus. Because that's true. Yeah. But what is
this these comments that are in here like they, at the end,
there was something but there's first of all, I want to aren't
in my next life. I want to be a chief people officer. That's for
sure. That sounds like a great, yeah, Chief, the
a great job.
And this woman she has a lot of employees don't feel connected
to the broader purpose of the company. When was this? When has
that ever been a criteria? I working for Ford Motor Company,
I'm on the assembly line, I'm putting a bolt on and I had to I
feel like I'm not connected the broader purpose? Well, you kind
So this all happened when HR came into play human resources,
which we've always laughed at Human Resource before Human
Resources was really a big thing. You know, we would laugh
about it, because that's all you are a resource who's barely
human. Okay, everyone loves it, because human resources and I'm
burnt out. I don't feel good. I saw this happen in the
Netherlands. When I was growing up because of the socialized
healthcare system. You could get literally, the Dutch before they
can even speak English the way they do today, because it's
improved over many decades. Yes, it kept in burnout. Given
burnout, burnout, and burnout. I have to stay home for three
months. I got to burnout. It was oh, I'm so sorry to hear that.
You got to burn out. Yeah. Yeah, you should stay home and you get
to, I think 80% of your of your paycheck or turnouts go to
burnout. You can't
go in and sit in the chair. I mean, what it would burn out
you're talking about here.
I'm just telling you what I witnessed. Yeah, I'm
sure you did. And I think it's I did make I like to know what the
genesis of this as it has to be in the 60s. Man, do your own
No, it's not. It's It's the it's the system. It's been planned. I
think. It's just what are we going to do with all these
people? Well, we got a, I don't know, get it. Get them on an
On an app by their burgers on their phone,
which is so healthy for you. Everything is bad. Get your your
cell meat. Get your culture your meat on your phone. Well, I'm
glad we'll be dead by 2030. Will we be dead? No, we'll be alive.
Probably. We're all be dead by say hello. Well, back to my
original story. From science alert.com Your blood type may
affect your risk of an early stroke.
Oh, yeah, that's it. Okay, let it get the chicken eggs. Let's
move that off the agenda and go to something else.
People with one of the type A blood groups appear to be more
appear to be more likely to have a stroke before the age of 60.
Compared with our actually something very sad. Very sad
news this morning. Yes, this is this and I was shocked.
Moreover, because this was not a vaccine. Death. But our dear
friend, producer and founder, Jeff Jeff Morgan of the no
agenda tea club. 58 years old. died suddenly. Yeah. And very
sad. Have I just received a new shipment from him. We had a back
and forth it was. I was shocked. I was really shocked. Very, very
going someplace where this Teton Yeah,
in Portugal. So love and light brother and the family and his
girlfriend of was it she was his girlfriend for 36 years, I
think. Yeah. Mate, but his was family were very, very quick to
point out that he was not vaccinated. So you can just die.
You know, it does happen. Not everything is evacs. Not
everything. Now, there is one other way you can die. And
that's by living in a Republican state.
A preprint of a new study that analyzes data from Florida and
Ohio shows that since vaccines became available,
by the way, it's not a vaccine, it's a vaccine. Just so you
Isn't this Hayes
that's Hayes and he said vaccine. He said Becky that
data from Florida and Ohio shows that since vaccines became
available vaccines and this has been going on essentially, since
vaccines first became widely available, it's gotten worse
rates. He says it again. Here we go. Right. That's the key.
Right? Right. excess deaths in Republican voting counties are
more than 150% Greater than those in democratic counties.
The author's note and quote the gap in excess death rates
between Republicans and Democrats is concentrated in
counties with low vaccination rates and only materializes
after vaccines become widely available.
The finally fixes at the end their vaccines, what's wrong
with him? Vaccines
kind of see what he was, what he was on. He was alluding to when
he saw this bhcc ind on a teleprompter that he's reading
from what was he thinking?
I think there's there's a job for a young person replaced
Chris Hayes. He's losing it.
He's lost a long time ago. He's He's lost and he's really rather
a rudderless ship without his mentor. working all the time.
Now part of us just starting the air part of
the problem, which will only get worse as technology. We're just
going back to why people don't work can't work don't want to
work. And it wouldn't be a no agenda show without hyping up
the dangers of chat GPT at UPenn prestigious
Wharton Business School A b b minus on an exam is pretty good.
But a computer getting that grade using artificial
intelligence is jaw dropping. That computer put to use
knowledge that analysts managers and consultants get paid big
money for. Although it struggled with sixth grade math. At the
University of Minnesota Law School chat GPT averaged a c
plus on long exams. Although professors noticed suspiciously
perfect grammar. New York City and Seattle school systems have
banned its use on department devices. And why you set up a
task force within a week to do with it.
Now you go chat GPT chat up to
you. Sounds like somebody
also, when you think about a job, what are the great jobs
that we know what's out is Teacher lame ass teachers.
What's out is police. Are you kidding me? You're not gonna be
a cop? Are you? No, no, no firemen and not so. Now I think
there's still people who want to be a doctor or a dentist or a
nurse. Maybe a hot librarian. But really the jobs are sports
sports wanted hot librarian,
sports star, you know, basketball, influencer. I mean,
this is the obvious job. Influencer is a big job. And
absolutely, it's a huge job. So, you know, that's what that's
what the kids see. I want to be like that guy on him or her on
Instagram and, and and when I say hot librarian The reason I
say that is because everyone uses the filters on the tick
tock and the reels and in the Instagram. So you can look hot,
but not if you go out. You can not only look hot at home, and
here's another one makeup tips, how to how to do your makeup,
how to do cooking. Everyone is so creative. I mean, there's so
many jobs in these tech firms, which I will say is going away.
I unloaded the theory on Rogen Wednesday, which is on yesterday
about tick tock very, very polarizing theory to a lot of
people. What was the theory? What we have is that tic tock is
in the problem is not China is that they're eating Silicon
Valley's learned Oh, yeah,
no, that's Yep. Da David Foley, David Foley said,
Dude, you're that bit is trending on Tik Tok? Well, of
course, of course it is. But people like no man that it's
China is China.
Well, okay, that brings me joy as you change the subject. That
brings me to the point of a question that showed up on the
no agenda social. You had a chunk of your interview, leaped
It was great. It was almost a Monty Python skit. And what
happened is, we were talking about centralized another
polarizing thing. When I say hey, man, Elon Musk himself, has
said that he wants to turn Twitter into x.com He wants to
build a better PayPal, we've played the clips, he has
verbatim said that. And, and I said hey, could be his own coin
or could be the central bank digital currency. And I say that
based on the fact that everything he does turns into a
government project everything thing as far as I know, oh, no,
you can't say that about Elon. Oh, no. So, yeah. Because you
can't say and Joe was the one who said, Oh, you So Elon could
be a Trojan horse. So yes, possible. I didn't even say it.
Two people are pissed off at me because Elon Yeah, he's the man.
And so I was talking about Mastodon, and said, there's a
difference between someone getting kicked off of Twitter
and off of these centralized systems. And Mastodon said, when
I kick someone off our own server for being a dick on our
own server, they can take their followers and stuff and you
know, they don't lose anything. And don't take away your right
to speech, you can just do it somewhere else. And then I gave
an example of the guy that I kicked off recently, and I gave,
I've said, the three words that I took issue with, not that
those three words are a big problem. But if that's all
you're doing all day long, I'm not interested. And when we were
done with the interview, Joe pretty much said, Look, man, if
we leave that word in that, then it will either become the entire
focus of what we what we talked about. And probably Spotify will
take it off. He didn't say that in those terms, but it would be
a problem. And you can't just drop the audio because I think
they create transcripts automatically. And then, you
know, I actually said, Well, why don't you blow up my mouth, drop
the audio. It'll be hilarious. No one will know what I said.
There was kind of my idea. But the funny thing was, it happened
as we were talking about censorship. And just before an
ad played, it was it was like Monty Python esque. I thought it
I thought it turned out pretty good.
That's hilarious. Are you being facetious? No, I think it's very
funny. Because the point is that the reason that he's on Spotify
is because he's going to be censored. To some degree,
Cherie. Yeah. Okay, because it's really like mainstream media,
you can't have certain things you just can't do you. Not
allowed. But why is it not allowed? Because of advertisers?
Exactly. There's no other reason. I mean, in a normal, if
it was a value for value model, you do what you want. And then
if you don't like it, they just stop supporting the show, which
is what's happening to us. And which is pointing that out,
because our donations are lagging and month of January.
But that's different than an advertiser telling you what to
do. And so you're circumspect toward if you or not,
or people using advertisers, like we heard from Richard
Edelman, to, you know, manipulate what the platform is
Yeah. So what you do, but that's what you do. That is exactly was
anything weird about what you do. But if you do, but I don't
think me I think the complaint that we generally have about the
mainstream media and advertising and, and the manipulation of the
public. I think that's a little bit I think that's what you do,
but you could still at least try to do your job and try to maybe,
you know, not be a complete stooge, like it was for Pfizer,
or the drug, the big pharma everybody going along with
whatever they want you to do, because their advertising is so
onerous. Now, I
will say, I will say that we talked about vaccines about
deaths about all and we didn't, that was not a problem. And Joe
does have a lot of power. He has a lot of power, he can pretty
much do anything he wants. By
the way, he's still I think, I believe he's probably still
irked about the being called out for using horse Metis talked
about it we there was in that context. We talked about it.
It's in the head to Sanjay Gupta on and Joe says Why did everyone
lie about that? And Sanjay Gupta is brainless.
His brain went bald. No, it didn't do that. It was just the
opposite. He was jacked up so he could defend himself off i don't
know i don't believe it. Let me go back and check with the
Check with HQ. But advertising is under attack in a different
way. With big tech and and I'm I have some thoughts about this.
We actually share the story with each other in between shows
Justice Department has filed a second antitrust lawsuit against
Google, the DOJ is seeking to break up what it calls Google's
monopoly over digital advertising technology. In 2020,
the DOJ filed another antitrust suit accusing Google of abusing
its dominance over online searches. That case is expected
to go to trial in September, Google said today the DOJ is
doubling down on a flawed argument that would slow
innovation, raise fees and hurt small businesses and publishers.
What do we think this is about? Is it really about smile
discussed this a bit on DH unplugged
Where were you also plug no agenda show? Uh, no agenda
show.com instead of.net, by the way,
just it links,
links. I did that. I'm terrible at times actually make that
mistake, but I know it links I don't worry, no worries, no
worries. Now the this bet baffles me too, because I am
watching this as like, you know, this is like, what did Google do
or not do? Did they drop their? Their, their lobbying budget a
little bit because that have a huge lobbying buzzard budget,
are they not giving enough free rides under one of 3767 jets
that they own? Maybe there's a couple of you know, they need to
give kick in that give that contribute that jet to some free
rides for Nancy? Perhaps.
I mean, this has to be one of those are closely related
Because I don't see that there's anything else going on here?
That is not been already been? We've gone over a million times.
And of course, the EU has been nailing or maybe we just need
some extra money from them. The EU because the EU has been
soaking Google Google every time they get a chance. And, you
know, maybe we could use a few of those bucks over here in our
treasury. Why is the EU get all that money? I don't know.
Well, as I was thinking about it, you know, back to back to
the basic thesis of tic toc winning. I have a feeling that
is related to that. Okay, we're going to do platform Tiktok for
you. We're going to tell everyone that it and even Joe
was so convinced, well wait a minute, they track everything.
They track keystrokes and other computers. And I said, Dude, you
really think that no one else does that? Really? Yeah. Really?
Of course, they all do that. Of course. They're all tracking it.
Maybe it's a Okay, time for you to give something back here. Or
you know, we're trying to help you Google because we all know
that. Tick tock is where people search for stuff. Now. If you
want a great restaurant, search on tick tock, look at the short
videos of people showing you the food Google loses in search with
the kids. Maybe it's you know, you know, maybe you're just not
like you say not we need more money, maybe more lobbying. It
is after all, Marco Rubio and Holly and all of these all these
people who are doing this for Google and for meta. And maybe
meta will get some hassle as well. Possible.
I think medicine Yeah, it could be I have three clips that kind
of lead to something that's conclusive that might have
something to do with this. Okay. And these are the clips about it
because they're making a fuss about this. A Bolsonaro is in
Florida. Oh, really? He's living with a one of those MMA
fighters, UFC fighters.
Now, why not?
Well, he's apparently one of the superstars. And he's a
Brazilian, and he has his mansion. And he says, you know,
you want to stay someplace stay here. And so it's like, you
know, the way it works, I guess. Yeah. And so he's in and it's in
Orlando, even though I didn't want to leave this clip in
because it's from NPR. They tried to imply that he's right
next door to Trump was nowhere near Orlando. But okay. All
right. But let's listen to these clips because this is kind of
interesting. But the third clip is the Whoa clip, which is like
then they just ignore they just overlook and I think this might
have something to do with it. Because suddenly you just said
let's play Bolsonaro in Florida, NPR,
January 8 rocked Brazil. That is the day when 1000s of supporters
of Scheier Bolsonaro stormed Congress and the Supreme Court
and the presidential office. Bolsonaro had tried and failed
in his bid for re election as President his supporters claimed
with no evidence that rigged Brazilian officials are now
investigating events that triggered the riots, but there's
one key player missing Bolsonaro himself. The now ex president is
now living in Florida, where he makes regular appearances poses
for photos with supporters and keeps a conspicuous distance
from Brazil's a peaceful and pure NATIONAL SECURITY
CORRESPONDENT Sergio Olmos visited the Florida neighborhood
where Bolsonaro is staying. Hey there, Sergio. Hey, hey, so tell
me more. We're
exactly Hey, this is a new way of interface. So hey there Hey
there, John. Hey, so hey, tell me just a new NP we
I've been playing a lot of NPR close but this has been going on
for years and I just beyond me. Hey, hey, hey, now.
Hey now, NPR NATIONAL SECURITY CORRESPONDENT series. You're
almost visited the Florida neighborhood where Bolsonaro is
staying. Hey there, Sergio. Hey, Mary Louise. Hey. So tell me
more. Where exactly is he in Florida.
So he's staying at a vacation home owned by a Brazilian MMA
fighter in a suburb outside of Orlando, near Walt Disney World.
There's a few dozen people that go see him every day there was
40 to 50 people when I was there last week. Seeing him there's a
mix of emotions among the crowd. It's like seeing a celebrity or
going to church people park their cars on the on a on a dirt
road. Outside the skate community. They a lot of them
are rental cars, they walk past the security gate to get in and
wait patiently on the sidewalk outside of his house. And
they're they're dressed up again, like they're going to
church, very nice families, kids. Some people bring
Brazilian flags with them. It's a really wholesome atmosphere.
There's this informal schedule where Bolsonaro come out in the
morning and again in the afternoon, and people kind of
wait around to see exactly what time will come out. And we saw
him come out and people were just aghast to see the ex
It's kind of like Punxsutawney Phil.
Yeah. So he, so this is kind of a funny scene. It sounds like a
game where they continue.
Sorry. Every day, he comes out twice a day and greets
supporters. Yeah. And
it's informal. It's not guaranteed. So people are kind
of waiting to talk to each other. Like, has it come out
today? What time and you
can't buy tickets for it, unfortunately, skip the line,
skip the line,
stuff like that. All right. So you were there one afternoon,
tell me tell me what that moment was like what you saw?
Yeah, most of the people that are resilient expats, some are
visiting the US, and they're from Brazil, and they stop off
to see him. It's near Walt Disney World again. So it's kind
of like a tourist attraction in some ways. And then some of the
people who who I saw there, were just staying in the area to
vacation resort kind of area. And we saw a group of people
walking by and asked, Who is this man that everyone's taking
pictures with? And they were stunned to learn the foreign
president, Brazil, and they got in the queue and took a photo
with them as well.
In the queue. In the queue? Yeah, we have to use those two
terms. British words. Yeah. In the queue, everybody
in the queue. Okay. So they go on a Yak and Yak and we you know
about the whole thing. And then they bring up this is the last
clips a minute clip, and they just kind of ignore what the
importance of what they're going to what I'm playing here, the
importance of this clip relates back to what you just said, and
or what one of the clips you were referring to, but listen to
this and then ponder it in ways that they're not pondering it.
People were happy to talk and they aren't deterred by the
riots of January 8, eighth, there's some of these people
that are in Orlando, visiting him, obviously, are some of his
most fervent supporters. They don't see any kind of thing
wrong with January 8. And one thing that really struck me was
talking to people there was their media died the role of
social media. So many supporters are telling me that at this
point, they almost exclusively get their news from social media
where of course, theories and fake news. look just like real
news. Here's what one supporter Lee Sutton told me. She was
visiting Florida from Brazil. Yeah, because
television was a massive TV ralliers newspaper magazine.
Nobody says says not seeing social media. So social media
only you have to follow all the bills on the US believe
Instagram, Twitter. Be all of them.
And we saw this with January 8, like January 6 here in the
United States, the role of social media played in ramping
up supporters and spreading disinformation.
Ah, yes. Okay. Hmm. Google, get in line. Twitter Get in line.
Actually, I have a clip about Twitter getting in line. This is
a European Commission vice president for values and
after Mr. Musk took over Twitter with his freedom of speech
absolutism. We are the protectors of freedom of speech
as well. But at the same time,
that's the funniest thing I've heard. We are the protectors of
freedom of speech as well shut up
after Mr. Musk over Twitter with his famous absolutism.
We got to keep that in that torture, that torture.
We are the protectors of freedom of speech as well. But at the
same time, we cannot accept, for instance, the illegal content
online. Our message was clear. We have the rules, which has
superior to have to be complied with. And otherwise there will
be sanctions. I think that the confidence has been weakened.
And I had quite a high level of confidence when it comes to
Twitter. I have to say that we worked with knowledgeable
people, with the lawyers with sociologists who understood that
they have to behave in some decent way not to cause really
big harm to this it I always felt that this this notion of
responsibility was there. So this is what I don't feel from
Elon Musk personally, but but we will see he was invited to the
European Parliament. I'm I wonder whether it will happen.
Yeah, they all want control. It's gonna be a tough one for
They want to listen to a couple of things about the Brazilian
commentary, especially that woman, the Brazilian that was
talking about magazines and newspapers being useless. Yes.
She said a couple of things that were interesting here. And
before I mentioned, I should mention that the Brazilians, as
part of the Portuguese culture, but probably an extreme example,
are the most sociable people in the world.
Yeah, they're, they're not on they're not really on social
media all the time. Are they? Yeah. Oh, they
are. Because you remember that that project that was years ago?
Or cut? Which was
Oh, you're right. It was the there was the Brazilian
transsexuals that took over and Google quit.
Yeah, that's the way it was like to be portrayed. But it wasn't
the Brazilian trick. It was everybody. Okay, the Brazilians
are, they're sociable people as a like, Well, I used to go there
a lot, because I was writing for one of the magazines down there.
And I would go down there and strangers would set up a party
around me. Because they set up a party run anyone is, hey, let
him know. You're
the big bosses. Come on, let's
set up a party. But if you want to go to Brazil, let me know,
I'll tell one person. Don't put a party around you. Because they
like to party. That's what they do. They party, they socialize,
they talked a chat they going out they have restaurants and
that I mean, it's just it's lively. Let's put it that way.
And Karneval if you see movies of it, or anything is
unbelievable. So so they're sociable. So social media will
always play a role. But But I think it's it's a tip of the of
the spear. Because when she says that it did look tidbit that she
had in there, she said, we only get our news from social media.
And this she mentioned from people we trust.
Google net casts you trust from people you love.
Yeah. So. So there was there's a trust factor. So in other words,
if you're going to be providing news like we do, you have to be
trusted. And we are we have a lot of people that write us and
say, you know, I gave up on the newspapers that their mainstream
media stinks. That's exactly what this woman said. Yeah, yes.
That's what we hear too, because we and we go out of our way to
be accurate. Mostly by deconstructing let people do
their own thing in every way. And we also have people boots on
the ground and the rest. But this is a big deal. And and in
fact that they would pay little attention to it at NPR, knowing
that there I target, along with the M 5am. Of this change this
cultural change, which is doesn't surprise me that it
would start in Brazil. But I think this is universal. I think
this is a big deal. And I think this is part of the TIC tock
problem. And I think this is maybe what's got something to do
with this Google event that's taking place where they're going
after Google for some reasons. This sum up
or cut what I'm reading from the book of knowledge orkut was a
social networking service owned and operated by Google. I think
they purchased it, didn't they?
They bought No I think they I think this was a home group
grown I could be wrong.
Owned and operated by Google. The service was designed to help
users meet new and old friends and maintain existing
relationships. The website was named after its creator, Google
employee orchid. buco Coco Cockington. Cheese. Well, it's
be you with an ohm loud why you with an OOM? Loud, que Ko was an
OOM loud k t e n. B O'Connor. Orca was one of the most visited
website Turkish in India and Brazil. In 2008, Google
announced that orchid will be fully managed and operated in
Brazil by Google Brazil in the city of Baylor or his or his
auntie, and was decided due to the large Brazilian user base
and bass and growth of legal issues. June 30 2014, Google
announced it would soon be closing or cut on September 30.
No new accounts could be created. Blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah. And they said
another example of Google dropping the ball on something
they actually did, right.
The legal issues were stemmed from Bombay's High Court serving
a notice on Google for allowing a hate campaign against India.
Hmm huh. So you're right. I'm sorry. That was the meme was
that they didn't like to the Brazilian transsexuals. That was
my bed on that. And I'll never use that term again.
The term I'm hoping you're referring to as my bad
that's what I said my bed. Brazilian federal judge Jose
Marcos Linder ordered Google to release by September 28 orkut
users information of a list of about 24 Brazilian nationals
believed to be using orca to sell drugs and involved in
China. I'll pornography. The shutdown here we go Google
announced or Kobe shutting down completely, users could export
their photo albums. And Okay Google engineering director,
Paolo goldgar. GoGear said in a blog post over the past decade
Facebook, YouTube blogger and Google Plus have taken off,
took off and went, by the way. So what is the difference
between Google Plus or what they tried to do? It's Google Plus.
And by the way, I'll tell you, no CEO should know this. If you
set up something that says you set up a shop and one way and
it's pretty much doing so and then you kill it, and then set
up a similar operation, people aren't going to go to it, they
just see and say, Hey, you just gonna kill it. What kind of
thinking is this Google Plus was how different was it from
Well, the issue is the issue is they couldn't get Western people
to use it that if that happens, you know, just sometimes stuff
just happens at community forums and, and no one else will come
in. Oh, that's the Brazilian transsexuals. I don't know what
the what the problem was. But that just didn't work. And of
course, they've never been able to have any success with that.
There was something else kind of technology related in, in
Brazil. Of course, the ex criminal Lula, one quote, air
quotes the election. Check this out
a warm welcome in Buenos Aires, the hugs a sign of renewed
friendship between South America's leading powers with
the Jair Bolsonaro years over Luis Inacio Lula de Silva is
forging an alliance with cooperation agreements in
various sectors, including energy, education and health.
The two Presidents left his allies want to create a common
currency for trade.
We don't know how a common currency between Argentina and
Brazil could work. But what we do know is how economies work
when they depend on foreign currencies to be able to trace.
We know how harmful that is.
What do you think the chances are, that will be a central bank
I thought it'd be the marrow. How about the south of marrow?
Oh, man, the marrow. Do you know when that America was floated?
That was really around 2009. A lot of times it was way before
No. But people started talking about it. When the when the h
one n one hit. There was there's a really interesting, I put it
in the show notes as a website that that has all these clips
like mini clips, mini mini cuts, mini super cuts that are so
analogous to COVID only in 2009. Coincidentally, when we also had
a big financial problem is just play one of these short ones.
Each one and one virus is made 1000s of people across the
country sick, many have died, and some worry that it could
grow into a full blown pandemic. Well, one state the Commonwealth
of Massachusetts is preparing for that with a very
controversial bill, Massachusetts proposing
legislation that would allow police to forcefully quarantine
residents and even impose martial law without a warrant.
back now with two quick updates on a story that began this
broadcast last night the predicted quick and rapid spread
of swine flu in this country and around the world. The US
military considering a plan that could establish regional
military teams to assist civilian authorities in the
event of a major outbreak of the virus this fall. What do you
think of the vaccination?
Yeah, that's the I have more concern about the vaccine than I
do about the swine flu. It's been rushed to market there are
high levels of adjuncts, which basically make it more potent
make so they can it's kind of a unrefined method that they use.
They have these high levels of these adjuncts including by
adjuvants. I know you said it wrong. Kind of eerily similar.
Oh, yeah, then playbook. And we and we identified that as a
playbook, which is one of the reasons why we were extremely
skeptical, extremely skeptical,
why we need this. This is the advantage, even though it's hard
to imagine, but it's
hard to imagine an advantage for the vow of poverty. We took
just two advantages, as you mentioned that we have the vow
of poverty. In other words, we don't take advertising. Yeah,
and the other thing is time in service. So doing 15 years and
seeing a repetition of this exact same process, two or three
times is an advantage because it can push you point back as
nobody does. instead.
So let me see where we are. We were gonna do one donation block
again and won't be too long. That's kind of the good news for
everybody. But there are things now so we got the shutdown, we
got the mandates, you know, although not governmentally
mandated mandated for companies and for a of course, for
government positions, except for the FDA and CDC, for some
reason, very odd. And now we have we got the inflation which
did not happen after 2009 Because we just said, oh, you
know what, we'll just kind of lower interest rates, free
money, everybody, we will grow like crazy, which we did. Now
that free money train is over. And so now we have crime and we
have people getting shot up and killed in California of all
places where the gun laws are extremely tough. And then you
have just little little nuggets like this
getting money out of the ATM is getting less convenient for some
bank customers. Chase Bank is now locking some of its ATM
vestibules in New York City in the early evening. Now they were
previously open 24/7 Chase blames rising crime and vagrancy
other smaller banks have made the same change.
So the ATM is going away there goes your cash. I mean, they're
just gonna have to shut that down. I mean, we shutting down
MC stabby. We're shutting down Starbucks because of the crime
and druggies in California just hanging out in front of it. But
there's a little more to it. Now we have the technological edge,
because we barely had the iPhones the last time this
happened, maybe for a year or two. And now you've got this
this morning. The owner of two of the most famous venues in New
York is under scrutiny for using facial recognition technology to
deny entry to certain people. New York Attorney General
Letitia James has sent a letter to MSG entertainment owner of
Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall requesting
information about its use of the technology your ticket is not
valid. Multiple lawyers who are already involved in litigation
against MSG say the company used facial recognition to bar them
from events. Larry Hutcher says his Knicks season tickets were
revoked last year after MSG removed his colleague from a
game at Madison Square Garden at the time archers law firm
represented ticket resellers who were suing MSG,
there is no rational, legal, moral or any explanation that
you could give that would justify the action that Madison
Square Garden has taken.
Kelly Conlon says she tried to attend a Rockettes show around
the holidays. But she says the venue scanned her face and
stopped her from entering her firm happened to be working a
case against one of msgs restaurants James writing MSG
entertainment cannot fight their legal battles in their own
arenas. A representative for MSG said the policy does not
unlawfully prohibit anyone from entering our venues. We are
merely excluding a small percentage of lawyers only
during active litigation. But the practice is raising ethical
and legal questions with potential ripple effects far
beyond New York,
it is very dystopian, it is very 1984 ish. How far is this
technology going to go? That people are going to be able to
use this type of technology to to take action that is clearly
not what it was originally intended. It's
frightening. Hey, that's groovy in it.
I have actually mixed feelings about Okay. And by the way, I
had that clip of that this began with that woman, which was the
last one they mentioned in that group and I had a clip on it.
It's not like that woman months ago. It was just a woman who was
involved in the law case, she worked at a law firm that was
suing MSG can nothing to do with the suit or or even at branch to
the firm was one of these big giant law firms, but they kept
her face and what she saw she wanted to come into some
something with her. I think it was a ballet or something like
Nutcracker with her daughter wouldn't that's
exactly what they said the Radio City Music Hall.
And so that was the first episode of this was been going
on. So as a couple of things, though, for example, if you're
going if you're in a venue and you you're a nuisance, and they
throw you out for life, which has been done, especially in New
York venues, just like your unruly drunk at a Yankees game,
which is pretty much redundant. Right? But they take draw you
out for life. I don't see that it's a problem that they
monitor, you're coming into their private venue. Personally,
totally agree. But what you heard is a guy was not let in
because his buddy was rude, unruly in his box or whatever.
He had a section or a box or whatever, or
the woman in the law firm. I agree that those two are I think
that's actionable. I think they can be sued.
Well, that that woman that lawsuit has been around Well, I
mean, nothing's been determined yet. And I just disagree. I
don't I think that the technology is taken over there
now pressuring companies Look, we're gonna get rid of Tik Tok.
So Google you better pony up, we're gonna screw with you. Meta
Gosh knows where we're Facebook and an Instagram and all that
will go. Elon Musk, you know, the old there is no way out for
him with advertising just no way. It's not going to work
anymore. So his plan of x.com Better Work. And I'll just stick
on the technology and then I'll get off of it because something
very interesting happened this week. I don't know if they
probably happened on Wednesday. Did you see what happened with
the with the New York Stock Exchange? Note? Check it out.
Bob, what do we know?
Yeah, hi, I am just walking around on the floor talking to
people. And as David has noted, there's a lot of strange prices.
I don't have an answer. I talked to Michael algorand, who runs
for trading, he's going upstairs into a meeting. It seems like
there was a systemic sort of issue with the prices. Now we
don't know for sure. But walking around just talking to the
designated market makers and looking at prices. Some
companies, some stocks appear to have opened up, limit up limit
down. Some had incorrect prices. And we're just trying to still
sort through exactly what's going on. I don't quite know,
you know, this has been fairly rare for occurrence. Like
there's some kind of technical or technological issue. And
that's what it looks like, at the NYSC has hadn't had has not
happened in a very, very long time. So I think that this was
primarily not related to anybody with pricing on the floor or
anybody else doing something. It was a technological issue. And
we're still sorting it out. I'm gonna go over here and talk
again to the designated market makers team, the floor
officials, Carl, I'll see what I can get you in the next couple
minutes. So that's just as it happens, CNBC clearly knows
nothing. Don't know what's happened. You can see it was
very confused hasn't happened a long time. What's going on?
Luckily, we have a follow up from Yahoo. Quote,
we haven't seen this in years traders and market watchers
reacted in open jobs shock at this morning's market moves, the
New York Stock Exchange apparently suffering a quote,
glitch. Now, that's
pretty incredible took me by surprise, Jared flickery has
been all over it for us today, Jared, what happened and what
gone forward? Going forward, I don't think we have a lot to
worry about probably a one off here. But we should review this
affected 252 names, this is only about a third to a quarter of
them. And at the opening auction. And that's basically
the opening bell here you have trades that are supposed to be
matched. And that did not occur. And so you had all this
liquidity, if you can think of the bids up here and the offers
down here, all that vanish. So that by the time the exchanges
got some information from the New York Stock Exchange, it was
too late, a bunch of trades had executed way above and way below
the prices. So in a bunch of these big names like Walmart,
Taiwan, semi, Exxon Mobil, a lot of those trades are going to be
canceled. And we just found that out a few minutes ago, when we
got this notice from the New York Stock Exchange, not going
to go into all the details. But basically, any stock or any
security that was subjected to these trades early on today, if
they were out of those volatility bands probably going
to be decayed or just overturned. This is a this is a
fact of life. It happens they weren't supposed to happen in
the first place. perfectly legal, legal, erroneous trade
happens. And now they're going to be canceled. But if you think
you were affected, make sure you check your account statements,
you're going to have only a few days to probably review. And if
there are any problems correct the situation
and I look forward to hopefully a deconstruction on the next DHT
on plug unplugged. From what I understand. You could not short
the market at the open when this happened. That's suspicious to
me. It's like we know there's a plunge protection team. But man,
could they actually just stop the shorting on the big stocks
that might have had some bad news?
Well, there was no moment to short but I mean, it wasn't like
everyone was getting ready to short the market. I think this
is the Russians.
You I can hear your phone off the hook. Right? I can hear your
phone going to do anything.
So I think it's the Russians,
the Russians. No, no, it's not the Russians. It is literally
Putin. He's the one doing this. And with that, I'd like to thank
you for your courage say the morning to you the man who put

thank our executive and Associate Executive producers, I
would like to mention a couple of news stories. Spotify has
laid off 600 people, Spotify and podcasts ambitions seem to not
be paying off Dawn Ostroff who was the employee who started all
the big acquisitions of talent I believe, including Joe, she has
departed. She has she was putting down $7.5 million a
year. Which is nice job if you can get it, but also huge
rumblings about Patreon mismanagement Patria Patreon.
Yeah, Patreon is in trouble. They've gotten a predictable.
Yeah, and I can't read this whole article. without
subscribing to the information.com at Patreon
mismanagement thoughts, a pandemic era star, there's what
is it? There's financial mismanagement, there's no zero
growth. They raised hundreds of millions of dollars to wind up
at a $4 billion valuation and it seems to be falling apart. So
consider what you're doing people consider you know, where
you stake your income on if you're if you are actually in
the business of podcasting if you're a creator of any sort It
was kind of sad to see that happen. But I can't say it
Well, they might survive it. I mean, the model is just a good
There was a great idea, but they charge too much there. And they
and they D platform people all the time. Yeah,
that was the problem. They should have stayed in the
background. Yeah. Maybe even done a couple of companies that
look like them, but just had different names. There's a
different long tail approach. You could have gone with that.
But you remember, remember that it was MasterCard, who does the
bulk of their processing who was saying now you got to kick that
guy off? I mean, this financial deplatforming is real. That's
really happening. It's happening through these these horrible

Okay. And although Thank you for having me, I may resubmit.
We have a couple of things. Where are we? Oh, we got plenty
of time. That's right. Everybody has time for tank talk on the no
I'm glad we got to jingles. Thank
you, Steve Jones. I kind of like my play it again. I'm liking it.
Welcome. I see you have a couple of tank top clips if I may.
Maybe I should just get started here. And she I think this might
be an interesting one. This one How about Martha Raddatz out
of the war in Ukraine. And tonight news from President
Biden significant new support for Ukraine in the form of
Abrams tanks being sent to help them fight back against the
Russians. The US will send 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. Today,
Germany and other NATO Allies now saying they will send
leopard tanks as well. Those things could get there even
sooner. Our chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz
tonight on why this is so significant, as Ukraine's
defense minister says these tanks will be an iron fist
against Russian lines.
Tonight with the war in Ukraine about to enter its second year,
the Russians now braced to face a fiercer Ukrainian foe, armed
with sophisticated battle tanks with greater firepower greater
Abrams tanks are the most capable tanks in the world and
will enhance the Ukraine's capacity to defend his territory
to achieve strategic objectives.
President Biden announcing the US will send 31 Abrams tanks,
and the Germans are releasing 14 of their leopard tanks. With up
to 60 more leopards sent from other European countries. The
Pentagon had been reluctant to send American tanks because they
are expensive, complex and hard to operate. But the offer was
finally made today in part to give Germany political cover
during enforcement a change. We want to make sure we're all
together. So we're going to do all that we're doing right now.
The German tanks should begin arriving within weeks the Abrams
could take up to a year since the US is building new ones for
the Ukrainians not taking them from the US stockpile. President
Solinsky had requested 300 tanks, but today tweeted his
thanks to President Biden calling it another powerful
decision and an important step on the path to victory. As for
those Abrams tanks, they are faster have precision fire and
are far superior to most of the Soviet era tanks the Russians
That's a couple of things. That's the baseline there I
guess. Yeah, a
couple of things. And there was a new piece of information in
there but a couple of things. One is that I'm surprised they
used iron fist because because of as Alinsky also said, my
favorite line which was a fist of tanks. Yes, finger fist of
stuff. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank
I'll say I would just this whole thing's a fiasco what
he said thanks, but it came out tanks.
So here is the Hold on a second. All right, this makes me feel
better. So here's Kirby on PVH barbicide not PBS. But NPR. This
is on NPR Says the
guy who was the spokes hole for the Pentagon and now he's kind
of a general.
I mean, he's disposable for the National Security Council.
he does a lot of this from the podium.
Yeah, because he's like the guy they're trying to get rid of
this other woman but you know, they don't want to look racist.
And you know, practicing white supremacy by putting this guy up
there all the time. Why they her out, so they can't do that. So
here he is, talking with an interview on NPR, trying to
explain the whole thing and he is a Flim Flam guy. He never
really answered his questions. He's full of shit. This guy
these should be ashamed of himself as a Navy officer, but
especially an admiral but here we go. And the real question is
why last week, there was no chance of them getting tanks.
Now. We had tanks what happened?
It's official American tanks are headed to Ukraine. The US is
sending 31 Abrams tanks a move designed to help Ukraine defend
its territory and also designed to send A message to Russia, the
US and its allies are committed to the fight. The expectation
on the part of Russia is we're going to break up. We're not
going to stay united. But we are fully thoroughly totally United
President Biden announcing the move today at the White House,
which is where we now find John Kirby, the President's spokesman
on the National Security Council. He joins us live John
Kirby. Welcome back.
Thank you so much, Mary. Louise, good to be with you.
Good to have you with us. Ukraine, as you know, has been
calling for tanks all through this war, the US resisted and
resisted and resisted Weisen them now. Well, we never
took tanks off the table. And tanks, frankly, have been in
discussion for months. But this was a discussion that we had not
only with the Ukrainians, but with our allies and partners.
And we want to make sure with every system we send, that we're
sending systems appropriate to the fight that the Ukrainians
are in, in the fight that we think they're going to be in the
coming weeks and months. And this decision today is really,
you've got to take a couple of steps back and look at it in the
context of the Combined Arms training that we're doing with
Ukrainian battalions right now outside the country, they
believe and we believe they're right to believe that in the
spring in the summer months, that they are they're going to
face Russia coming back in an offensive way and that they want
to be able to conduct offensive operations of their own and they
want to do it in a combined arms fashion, which means you need to
maneuver in open terrain and on vast parts of ground and that
means you need armored capabilities like the Bradley's
and the strikers we sent and then of course includes tanks.
So this decision was really the culmination of weeks of
diplomatic conversations about how do we help Ukraine in the
fight that we expect them to be in when the winter fades and
spring and summer months come?
The fighting season is back.
So that's uh, you know, he did question was last week you said
no way tanks. Yeah. And now it could so he just goes on and on
and on. He's really good at this by the way. Yeah, he's gonna be
a much better guy from the real podium if they get rid of John
Pierre clan Damn.
Karina Karina, Sean Pierre VanDamme.
Yeah. All right. Onward.
But on the Abram specifically the Pentagon's top policy guy
this is Colin Cole told reporters just last week that
the US was not going to send a I'm sorry,
what is what kind of role are you as the Pentagon's top policy
guy? What does that even mean?
It means you're getting my big check for doing nothing okay.
But on the Abram specifically the Pentagon is top policy guy
this is Colin Cole told reporters just last week that
the US was not going to send Abrams to Ukraine because
they're too hard to maintain. He said and I quote, the Abrams
tank is a very complicated piece of equipment. It's expensive.
It's hard to train on, John Kirby, are these things no
longer true? All those things are still true. Mary Louise,
John Kirby, Mary Louise, John Kirby, Mary Louise, John Kirby,
Mary Louise, John Kirby and Mary Louise, what
are you doing here?
And we have been nothing but open and transparent. Certainly
the Pentagon has been about certain challenges with having,
you know, a foreign military operate and train and maintain
Abrams tanks. But there are other countries that that have
purchased Abrams tanks and are able to operate them. And so
we're confident that the Ukrainians can get there. I
don't think so. But the difference is, Ukraine is at
war, when they are in the midst of an invasion by a hostile
neighboring power, and they are losing civilians and troops
every day. So we need to make sure that we tailor the delivery
of Ukraine's in a way I'm sorry, Abrams, what in any part that we
deliver that, that we tailor the delivery of Abrams tanks in a
way that the Ukrainians can absorb it effectively. So that's
why we're going to start with this potato and that's why it's
going to take many months for them to get there. But we're not
going to waste time Mary Louise, we're going to train those
troops. We're going to help them put in a supply chain process so
that they have the parts and supplies and the technical
ability to repair these runs. Great, thanks. Yeah.
It was very confusing. What What was your your edits and what was
oh, they keep going? He keeps his she keeps calling him John
Kirby constantly and Mary Louise. Okay, back and forth.
Hi, well, Adam curry the way I see it is, oh, what do you think
John C. Dvorak?
Well, what I mean, it's what I think John C. Dvorak is at colon
cow. Kal is a very evil looking douchebag. From the Pentagon.
Did you look him up? Yeah. What did you do? What's he do for a
Well, he is officially the Undersecretary of Defense for
Policy. But he went up during this while he's a Harvard
University Council on Foreign Relations, blah, blah, blah. But
he was the Iran deal guy.
Well, the way I see it, the Pentagon Saying one thing Herbie
in the White House, they're thinking something else and
there was a content. What she's trying to do is get him to say,
hey, there's a screw up here, right?
he would. He wouldn't do it now and honestly what we said
planned all along. So, and then he's you know, stammering to
which gives the ATO what he's really, she's pretty good
actually this woman, Mary Louise or whatever the woman and so she
she's pretty good at pushing at least trying to get the question
as twice minimally. Let's go to clip three
now it's not just Abrams that are headed to Ukraine. This
announcement was made in tandem with Germany announcing they're
gonna send leopard tanks was the announcement time to give
This was a very coordinated announcement by both the United
States and Germany. I mean, we we've been talking to our German
counterparts now for many weeks. Tanks have been certainly on the
agenda. They were on Friday when Secretary Austin was in Ramstein
on the Ukraine contact group. And today's announcement was
very much coordinated with with the Germans as as it should be,
as the President said, we are are united we want to certainly
appear as though we are united because again, that's really
That's pretty funny. We want at least one at least appear to be
united. That's important to want
to certainly appear as though we are united because again, that's
really important too. Yeah,
fakery is phony
Kirby. Wait, that was Kirby was a truth coming out?
Yes, of course, of course. And she goes on. Yeah. But she knows
she knows his his horse craft coordinated
with with the Germans as as it should be, as the President
said, we are our united, we want to certainly appear as though we
are united. Because again, that's really important to
know. President Biden went out of his way not to threaten
Russia today. He stressed this is about helping Ukraine defend
its own territory. He said, it's not an offensive threat to
Russia, there is no offensive threat to Russia. Can you
elaborate on the messaging going on there? We have
been from the very beginning. Not interested in having this
war in Ukraine escalate to make it what Putin claims it is a war
of US versus Russia. It's not. And we don't want to see the war
escalate to that level, that wouldn't be good for us. Russia
certainly wouldn't be good for Ukraine. So the President's
comments today were entirely consistent with how he has
talked about this war from the very beginning idiots and the
Russian propaganda today, you know, they're out there saying
that these tanks are an escalation that they're an
offensive threat. And the President wanted to get ahead of
that and make it clear that they're not now look very loose,
very loose. They are absolutely a threat to Russian forces
inside Ukraine. They need to know that they need to
understand that these are very capable tanks.
Oh, man, he's he's fought. She's not having it. And it's actually
pretty impressive. Yeah. I mean, she's not getting anywhere. But
uh, West. She's a West German woman.
Ah, so that's why she has a problem with that.
I looked it up. Cuz I said, I kept saying she SS. It's not
really an accent. But her presentation style is just, it's
got a little something with her voice. And I'm thinking who is
this? So I looked her up. And she is for out originally from
I have some German clips where we can check that in a minute.
So let's go with the I think this is the last one. But that's
that's my last question. In the few seconds we have left, I
think a game changer, just the White House expect these us
tanks to be
what we do, do you think will be a significant enhanced
capability for Ukraine is all the armored capability, you've
got to keep it in context of everything that's being given to
Ukraine here for their combined arms operations. Right. And the
tanks are a part of that they are significant, they will have
a significant impact. And that's why quite frankly, we gave them
the equivalent of one Ukrainian battalion so that it wasn't a
symbolic gesture, it was actually have operational
Okay, okay. She says, Well, this is very interesting. Here's the
German Foreign Minister, telling us exactly who this war really
is against and between who, and therefore I should mention, this
German foreign minister. She lied about her credentials. He
had to give her diploma back. She's very young. You just you
just look at it like, oh, man, I just don't like you. It's one of
So she's one of those people that wormed her way into Office
Yeah, not hard at all. Now, also know that I think we talked
about the debt, the people who are running in the German
cabinet, there really are a bunch of losers. You know, the,
the defense minister, she had to leave the recall because she
were high heels or whatever. They're just trying to get rid
of people anyway they can. So she's still in your she is in
the European Parliament, and therefore
I've said already in the last days, yes, we have to do more to
defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on text. But the
most important and the crucial part is that we do it together
and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are
fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.
Thank you. Oh, okay. Thank you, Madam
Minister. So not Ukraine against Russia. We are fighting Russia.
Thank you, Foreign Minister. That's really great. Now let's
go take a
look ruse up to messaging here is Deutsche
Avella, German news television. With a little introduction of a
longer report about the state of the German military. Germany's
military is short of money, equipment and stuff. And it has
been for years to goondas regularly hits the headlines
with embarrassing stories. radio equipment from the 80s a mass
breakdown of Houma vehicles, lack of basic underwear and
waterproof jackets and training not with machine guns but
broomsticks. So when Russia invaded Ukraine in February
2022, the inspector of the German Army issued a stark
warning, the Bundeswehr the army that I have a duty to lead is
standing there more or less empty handed. It was a wake up
call, the invasion sparked a massive policy shift. With a war
on European soil, Germany's military suddenly became a
So they had no underwear. That seems pretty basic for your
fighting force. And instead of training with machine guns, I
use broomsticks. And this is actually doing this in front of
the I guess the Air Force and these planes are all decrepit,
and look like crap. I'm sure it's some internal programming
that's going on for for the Germans. But this is all very,
very odd what's taking place now I have two messages from
military people who I know personally, who are not in
Ukraine, but in surrounding European states, such as Poland
will be one. And as this is not really reported on but there are
many mercs in Ukraine, fighting mercenaries, US mercenaries. My,
my signal timeline is just filled every day. Oh, this
here's this mercenary got killed God kill got killed. And now the
mercenaries guys, predominately guys, there's some women who
will go anywhere to kill for money. Pretty much. They are
stopping. They are leaving because they say Ukraine is
losing the corruption is out of control tanks will not help you
Ukraine. They are running out of experienced fighters. Now the
second message I got this is very interesting.
This is from a guy in Poland. The first one yes. Okay.
and the polish that Polish mail you is really anti Russian. And
it would be so it'd be tilted a little bit into it would
domestic I don't know what it what that means?
Well, let me put it this way. He's not a European now. So
there's mercenaries there. Let me just repeat that. Here's
here's another one. Just a little cryptic, but I'll just
read it. Russia is about to buy all the US gear left behind in
Afghanistan. Russia will recognize the Taliban will
replace us gear with Russian made gear. This will include the
latest US night vision goggles, M rap helicopters, etc. Afghan
soldiers trained by the US left behind Afghanistan are fighting
on the Russian side against Ukraine as well.
This was an article in the sun that went on about that $80
billion were the gear that we left behind or by us make it
just be straightforward. Biden, Biden left behind $80 billion in
Humvees and bullets and shoppers and everything. And you know,
they popped a hole in a couple of tires that said they're good
to go. And so the Russians, supposedly according to the son
out of the UK, are eyeballing this stuff because the Taliban
is not using it. I mean, they probably use the rifles is a
bunch of AK clays. Yeah, they shoot the cases. Sure, whatever.
And so the Russians are going to supposedly it might make sense
that they do a deal with the Taliban even though they were
once enemies and saying, Look, we're going to be friends
because no one else is recognizing you. We're gonna do
that. We're going to give you some money because you guys are
starving. It's the coldest winter ever for the last 15
years, I think is what they say. In Afghanistan. People are dying
in the streets and we'll help you with some cash. But give us
all this stuff. We just ship it out of here because it's just
rotting. We're not doing anything with it. The Russians
get all this gear and attack us with it. This is classic
not us, Ukraine. I mean,
you know, they attack Ukraine with it. Yeah, yeah. Well, I'm
sorry. Did I say us?
Yeah, yeah. Little faux pa there.
But they're gonna attack Ukraine with it. And this is reminding
me of a story that somebody has always tried to meet during the
World War Two. The city of Fresno and most of the cities
around the United States tore up all their trolley tracks all
over the place to put in buses at the behest of Firestone
General Motors and I think Standard Oil if you remember
it's a big scandal all the trolley tracks are chopped up
and sent to Japan to make bullets so this kind of thing is
what we're really good at doing. Yeah, it gear for both sides
comes from us.
But there's a lot of people catching on to all the you know,
a whole bunch of Ukrainian officials had to resign wasn't
really big news. I think it was on in that I think it was an
article kids showed up
I didn't get a close but it does show a lot of clips about
they're trying to put a clamp down on on corruption. So they
don't have this reputation, right. Except
all the pictures that they have. And all the tweets are of
billionaires Driving Sports cars getting mansions in Poland
taking luxury vacations, you know, it's a mess because they
got all the money they got all the money. We know exactly how
that goes. Then I have now this is kind of interesting where
we're at now. New York Times US and NATO scramble to arm Ukraine
and refill their own Arsenal's. As it turns out, I think I said
on the last show that we probably have about a week's
worth of ammo and stuff. Now the New York Times reports on it.
Nine months into the war, the West fundamental unpreparedness
is set up a mad scramble to supply Ukraine with what it
needs. We'll also replenishing NATO stockpiles. As both sides
burn through weaponry and ammunition at a pace not seen
since World War Two. The competition to keep Arsenal's
flush has become a critical front that could prove decisive
to Ukraine's effort. Yeah, yeah.
They kept a stockpile of ammunition that we already have
and we've given it all away. No, no, I'm talking about the stuff
that the IRS has. Oh
oh, oh, good one Johnny Boy. I like that. Yeah, the IRS and
what who else has guns here?
