This is your award winning give on nation media assassination
episode 1529. This is no agenda, opening Project Blue Beam and
broadcasting live from the heart of the Texas hill country here
in FEMA Region number six in the morning, everybody. I'm Adam
and from Northern Silicon Valley where we're opening project
bullcrap. I'm John C. Dvorak.
It's the same book, it's just a different cover. There's no
difference between the two is
actually the playbook for the Super Bowl.
Bowl crap. Let's do that right away. Before we do anything,
let's let's just do our prediction for the Super Bowl.
We do it every single year. You do it based on sports analysis.
I do a based on God geographical geopolitical, geopolitical
feelings. What do you say?
Well on sports analysis, everybody's predicting the
Eagles. But I'm going to because they've never been in this team,
this team. I mean, the Eagles have been in Super Bowls, but
this team is, is rank amateurs. And one of them's the
quarterback in particular, the guy think they're gonna be
nervous enough, they're gonna end up losing the game and I'm
gonna give it to the Kansas City team.
Wow. Okay, well, you know, I was already all in on the, the City
of Brotherly Love. So it's got to be the Eagles and I'm gonna
give you a score to give you a score.
Is it going to be the same score that was in the newsletter?
No, I don't think so. My score is eagles 38 Chief 17 Why would
you laugh at that?
It's so silly. Okay, all righty then giving a score. You don't
even like football.
I love football. I love the Super Bowl. It's gonna be great.
It's gonna be a great Super Bowl.
It goes on right after the show and I wonder how many people are
listening to all the bowl crap that's going on before the game?
Yeah, you know? And then it's showing pictures and I bet
they're free stuff you can do at the Super Bowl when you were
So I think Fox has the rights to this year Super Bowl if I'm not
Fox Yes. Which means it's going to be broadcast in 4k
and Oh really? Yep. I didn't know that ABC or whatever they
haven't they don't broadcast it in 4k.
Nobody broadcasting 4k Except that I know I think NBC does a
few broadcasts and 4k and a fox does a lot of broadcasts and 4k,
but people like to condemn it because it's faux que
focus. Oh, it's not real cage focus.
Well, what they do is they broadcast and high definition
and then they up convert as den den broyage Send it out in 4k,
but it's not true 4k.
Lame. Is that lame? It
looks good. But the thing that is different is that it comes
over in HDR, and that really brightens up the picture and
helps a lot. Now, if you have a set that can do it. The
is the network that is broadcasting the Superbowl game
also has a sit down interview with the President. Is this
happening? It's just happening this year.
But Bush, Bush Bush a little bit behind the time. Yeah, just a
bit. Biden says no,
that's, that's a lame name. Now there's a lot going on. I
understand. Yeah. Before we get to Operation Blue Blue bean bull
crap. Did you see the note from Sir Daniels? No, came in late,
sir Daniels. This is a night of the no agenda roundtable. He
recently took a position at Project Veritas and he has an
update based upon our broadcast from Thursday. And he says he
was able to finish the last episode. And he calls bullcrap
on everything we said. I want to read it we say well, remember
that we found out this whole frog is going on that they did
they kick out James O'Keefe. He's on a week leave. Turns out
there's a 501 C three and a 501 C four and I personally
questioned you know what was going on? Was this some did
Pfizer take issue with one of their one of their Why do I
get mentioned in this condemnation? Then? Go on?
Okay, Kara. Don't do that. You can say anything you want but
on. Don't do that. Is it is Cara? Yes, Carrie.
i He He sent it to me. So you were copied on it but you didn't
get condemned in this?
I don't I don't I get doing work in the morning. I'm looking at
emails like it's too late. You should have sent me a letter
sir Daniels from Veritas boots on the ground. He says I promise
you your assessment on the 501 C three versus 501 C four is very
much wrong. We don't lobby at all. Okay, so strike. Okay,
wait, stop. He's going to explain it. You'd like to know
why? Well, I first
the question that comes immediately to mind is that why
do you have that designator, which is specifically for
lobbying operations? Here
it is. We out of abundance of caution, always put out stories
that involve elections or candidates under our 501 C four
entity. Lawyers have suggested this setup because when we show
a political candidate in a negative light, it can be
interpreted as an endorsement for the opposition. We do not.
Okay, I stand corrected on that. We do not endorse or advocate
for anything, we just report on what people say in private that
contradicts what they say in public. This, we also honeypot
gay guys with no mention of that this setup was deemed to protect
our 501 C three status makes total sense. In principle, we
don't think we really even need to see for it all but but use it
out of an abundance of caution. As we state on our website. I'm
sorry, I did not read that. By the ways as I am the Executive
Director for both entities. And we're talking to the top here,
John, we're no slouch.
No, I think this Yeah, no, no,
no. The board has not capital n ot ousted James, everyone wants
him at Project Veritas. And Pfizer is not putting any
pressure on us. Well, that's three strikes. I can't really
say much more than this, than that, at this point as the
situation is fluid, but more detailed to come as I'm able to
share service track. Okay,
well, this will that's the official
word. I'd say. So
So you know, I'll explain anything, but it's okay.
You know what, it's more official word and I've heard any
podcasts or any Twitter person have in which we just throw it
away. And we just throw it away at the beginning of the show.
Throw away it's just a way for us to toss away. All right. Wow,
this was an exciting time to be a podcast or breaking news.
News Tonight a US fighter jet shoots down yet another high
altitude flying object this time over Canada amid the growing
mystery of what was shot down over Alaska on Friday. The US
military searching for remnants of what it took down but they're
facing nasty weather off Alaska
and new questions today. What was it and who sent it.
Breaking news breaking news Canadian
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announcing a US fighter jet took
out an unidentified object over the Yukon scrambling both
Canadian and US aircraft after coordinating with President
Biden Saturday afternoon, just one day after another
unidentified object was shot down over Alaskan waters with
recovery efforts underway in the Arctic and more questions and
answers about who owned it, why it was there and what
capabilities it may have had. We don't have
any information that would confirm a stated purpose for
when President Biden ordered us fighter jets to take it out with
a missile just hours after learning about it.
Oh man it's so good. It's so good. I'm sure you have a couple
of clips you want to share I have all clips actually. We we
need to help people with this one.
But I think that the real issue is the lies by omission. Okay,
which I have documented quite excellent let's do it quite
nicely including somebody who finally tells us what to watch
I got I got now just so you know, I have Aviation Week which
has some interesting this you know, editors of Aviation Week
from their podcast interesting observations about the Chinese
balloon the first the OG balloon. I also have the
Pentagon media briefing about a boot the the first UFO so that
and then of course I have the you know, the typical mainstream
bullcrap, so just let your
mainstream bullcrap but then I go to go to the to the full
press conference of the shine of the Canadian yes defense
minister minister and she won't say what it is and then they
make a mistake Okay. And tell us what it is but let's I I'm still
mystified by why they're trying to bull crap us with these with
the specifically say unidentified flying objects a
couple of times the Canadian said that everybody says it i By
the way, I have you had your clips you just played once. One
of the comments was UFO.
I have the answer for later but let's get through all the clips
Okay, well, let's go with just go to the MBU. What did ABC us
do? NBC, NBC is overview.
Tonight, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Announcing a US
fighter jet took out an unidentified object over the
Yukon scrambling both Canadian and US aircraft after
coordinating with President Biden Saturday afternoon, just
one day after another unidentified object was shot
down over Alaskan waters.
By the way, this is the same report at NBC. I think this is
the same report
with recovery efforts underway in the Arctic and more questions
and answers about who owned it, why it was there and what
this is same exact is the same clip except
you have more of it if that was the same beginning of my clips,
so I'd say we bought
you ABC. No, it was the NBC then let's go on. Let's go to let's
get the hell with it. Let's get it so that this is an
international let's go to Al Jazeera. UFO Canada AJ report
another unidentified object has been shot down over North
American airspace this time over northern Canada. Canadian and
American forces were tracking these cylindrical object before
a US F 22. Aircraft shot it down over the Yukon becomes a day
after flying object was shot down over Alaska in the US. And
a week after a Chinese balloon was downed off the coast of
Okay, so this is interesting because they have is an Object
and Object and a balloon. Yes, so correct. So they defensively
he goes on and on and on. She gives us this explanation
without saying much. And then somebody comes up with a very
interesting question for her. And this is the UFO candidate
defense lady hem and haw,
this is Libra ministers David. Lee, go ahead. Okay. Thank you.
Thanks, David. I wanted to ask this, maybe a silly question.
But I think it's I didn't think I'd ever asked this question. Is
there any indication that this object is not terrestrial is not
from this world? There is it's really to say anything that from
your right, I have not had that question, Lee. So thank you for,
for asking it. There. From all indications, this object is
potentially similar to the one that was shot down off the coast
of North Carolina, though smaller in size and cylindrical
in nature. That is the information that we are working
with right now. But with further analysis, we will know more and
be able to provide you with more details. So.
So just to confirm, so it sounds like it potentially was another
balloon is that is that what we're being led to believe?
I will refer to that the item as an object at this time. I am a
person that depends on facts, and will not provide opinions
until I can ground them in some sort of facts. So I'm going to
wait for the reports that I will be getting relating to the
analysis of the debris.
Hmm, well, that that's not exactly on message. It's
supposed to be you know, a little more a little more vague.
It's just kind of supposed to elude
Well, this guy this question kind of screwed her over. So So
meanwhile, she brings on this Canadian Air Force General,
who's whose last name, I believe is air, which is a fascinating
name for Air Force guy. And he seems to want to have nothing to
do with any of whatever the charade is. And I have a
rationale for why this is going on. And he just kind of blows
the whole thing up as it were. And this is the UFO candidate
general, spoiling everything
that's successful downing of this object all Jahad concern
about for more specifics, I will ask the Chief of Defence Staff,
General Wayne air who's with me this evening, if he would like
to add anything?
Is it name general wing air?
That was Wayne? Oh, that would
have been even better.
General Wayne air was with me this evening. If he would like
to add anything. General air?
No, thanks, Minister. And, David, to go to the specifics of
your question. There was an aim 9x missile from the F 22. Now
it's important to note that the instructions that were given to
the the team was whoever had the first best shot to take out the
balloon that had to go ahead. It's also important to note that
aircraft are under the direction of Canadian NORAD region. So a
Canadian general in Winnipeg was was overseeing this, this
operation, albeit in a NORAD context.
Just that was funny, by the way, just just to kind of give you a
little more Canadian flavor. I have about 37 seconds of
presence. Didn't Trudeau announcing his his order to
shoot down yet yet?
I want you to play it but first I have to say after that clip
the woman came back on with the look of someone so irked she
came back on and it looked on her look on her face was low we
were I went through all this trouble of humiliating myself
did not say balloon did not say balloon and then you come on and
say balloon she was steaming, she was ear to smoke was coming
out of her ears.
That's a good observation and a good point. So that shows that
that all intent here is to keep it mysterious and very UFO.
Like, for whatever reason.
I have a potential reason.
We all have thoughts. But let's first listen to just President
Justin Trudeau, who does not look like Trudeau by the way. He
looks 15 or 20 years younger than I've seen him in a long
time. Botox I was hair was definitely a bit longer than
I've seen it recently. Or maybe that's just
my American body double.
I'm thinking something like it was it did not seem like him. It
seemed like a much younger version.
Yesterday NORAD confirmed that an unidentified object entered a
lawfully Canadian airspace.
Okay, so now we're definitely not saying maybe a balloon here.
It represented a reasonable threat to civilian aircraft. So
I gave the order to take it down. Yeah, you ordered nothing
Justin. Canadian and American fighter jets were scrambled,
Rambo and an American F 22. Successfully shot down the
object. recovery teams are on the ground.
Did you start it again. But now as you're brought in, this is
information that is some screwy about this guy. He sounds winded
It doesn't sound the same. He doesn't look this age. No, he
doesn't quite sound the same. He's He's got it. Normally. He's
kind of forceful and it kind of a route and he's got this kind
of relaxed bullcrap tone. Yeah. That is hard to describe, but
didn't sound like this. He's sounds like he just got through
Strangely enough his teeth. I mean, I'm orally oriented these
days, because my own issues, his teeth did not even look the
same. So something about this clone is off.
recovery teams are on the ground, looking to find and
analyze the object. This afternoon, I also spoke with
President Biden and confirmed together that we will continue
to do everything necessary to protect the sovereignty of our
heirs of our shared North American airspace.
Now notice he says of our our shared North American airspace.
So this is partly a part of a an overall just, you know, subtle
subtleness of North America. It's really United States,
Canada and Mexico,
but also to do everything necessary to keep our citizens
North American Union, you know, I don't know, it just it felt
off. I just want to mention, well, it
doesn't sound right now that you mentioned it. Yeah. I didn't see
this. Boy, I probably did it because they had it in bits and
pieces all over the place. And this whole thing about keeping
the balloon. Well Can balloon so is the other one. Can
we go to the Pentagon briefing?
Yeah, I want to hear what I had some of that news, NBC clips.
What is Kirby right?
No, no, no, no, this is the Pentagon? This is the Okay.
Okay, different guy. So, and it's good audio. And it's it's
it's a very different kind of briefing at the Pentagon. And
the reporters were asking pretty good question. This is from
Friday. So this is after the first aren't identified balloon,
object when the pilot when the pilots approached it, and they
determined, I understand that it was not manned. How did they
determine that? And at that point, wouldn't it be possible
to at least describe what they were looking at? Did it resemble
a balloon or an aeroplane or what?
Again, we'll know more and have more information. Once we've
recovered this, I will give credit to our pilots, that
they're very capable in terms of looking at an object, assessing
whether or not this had the potential to be manned at that
altitude, something that's small, very, very unlikely that
it was manned. And so again, no indication that it was manned,
presented presented a potential reasonable threat to civilian
air traffic, and we took it down.
What speed was it traveling it by the way,
I don't have that information.
Okay, so it was floating. Let's make sure it's not a balloon.
I just had a couple clarifying questions. You You said that,
that the pilots were able to see it, that it wasn't the same
shape or size as the balloon, can you say definitively it was
not a balloon?
I don't at this point, considering the fact
that little different than the Canadian counterpart, we're
the object. I don't want to get into characterizing it. So just
leave it at that. Okay, you
mentioned you know, how fast was traveling? Can you say it was
traveling faster or slower than the balloon?
I don't have that information in front of me. So I don't want to
make it up.
He doesn't have it in front of him. But he knows.
Try a couple more. Um, did anyone?
I'd love to try a couple more. I love this.
Yeah, let's get back to his balloon.
Um, did anyone tried to within the administration contact their
Chinese counterparts before the decision was made to shoot it
In terms of when you say the administration, if you're
referring to the White House, I'd have to refer you to them.
The Department of Defense, to my knowledge did not again, we
don't know the point of origin of this object.
And was there any effort to jam or somehow disable this object
before such that suppose less of a,
so I don't want to get into specific tactics or techniques
that we may or may not use when observing these types of things
again, NORAD sent up aircraft to observe to see what it was, and
then the ultimate decision was made based on the reasonable
threat to civilian civilian air traffic to take that
I just want to point out that is contrary to what the Trudeau
clones said. He said, I gave the order they scrambled the Jets
now they were already in the air. So they were assessing what
it was, so he didn't get any order to shoot down. They didn't
scramble anything. That's all hyperbole. So next question,
there's still kind of on the balloons here. The reporters are
having a hard time at the Pentagon,
like these reporters better than the ones that do the White
House. Much better.
And the answers are more succinct and less, less filling.
When I asked you about the overall program, you said,
You've been you've been learning a lot about this balloon program
over the last couple years. Yet the annual China report doesn't
have a peep about balloons in there. You spend a lot of money
and effort but no balloons.
So here's here's a reporter who has read something before he's
asking a question go figure
I won and China's balance of power against them. satellites
and jets, but no balloons, why not?
So So Tony, what I would say on the
notice the notice that so Tony, Tony, Tony, I know your name. So
Tony, what I would say is You better
watch out Mr. On the unclassified China power report.
Oh, that was unclassified. Right? There's going to be
certain elements, intelligence aspects in the unclassified
version that may not be included in that particular report.
Oh, great. Um, because balloons are so classified.
Oh, yeah. Blues are so secretive. Yeah.
Oh, my God, blue horns, we can talk. Tony, let me tell you
that, Tony, you know, that was the unclassified version. But,
you know, you never know we had in the classified version
in terms of what's in that report, and what's not in that
report. Again, we can go back and look at that. But I can tell
you, I can assure you that there are a lot of activities that we
continue to monitor to include this balloon program. And we've
learned a lot over the last couple of years that the
classified version has the ones in there, I'd have to go back
and look, I do not know the answer to that.
He just gave the answer though. I have to go back and look at
that. Okay, will you circle back, we'll circle back. So we
know that this thing was cylindrical in shape. They
classified it as about the size of a car, you know, which makes
you you visualize? Know, Like, I don't know, what should we say
like a bronco. You visualize a Bronco hanging from something
that's whatever this but that it was cylindrical. We heard that
they never said it was hanging from anything. They just said it
was good boy, good point. Good point. It was just a cylinder
little object. So let's see what the result was up there by
Do you an Admiral Kirby know the shape of this new object? And if
so, what is sort of the reason for why you can't share it shape
before it was shot down?
Yeah, thank you. So in terms of the shape, I don't know. I have
not seen any imagery of it. I'm just telling you the verbal
characteristics as it was this describe to me
it was probably a police a penis balloon. Just floating around up
there. But whatever you do, call it an object
when the when NORAD sent the initial aircraft up to see was
there any sort of hailing or any type of warning given typically
when an aircraft makes an incursion into protected
airspace? There's a whole lot of procedures that have to be
followed before it would escalate to something like this.
Okay, well, this was an object, right? So it wasn't an aircraft.
Oh, okay. Hay is an object. Okay. So that was the Pentagon
briefing. I love how CNN Jim Acosta, who has his own show,
what he's what he launched into the ether was so much better
Interesting. This is kind of unusual that these pilots saw
different things. And that is sort of, I guess, adding to the
mystery of all this.
Yeah, not even the pilots apparently, were really able to
identify what they saw. And just to take you back for a sec. On
Thursday, the US defense officials sent F 35 fighter jets
up to try to figure out what this object was flying around
near Alaska. Those pilots we have learned have given very
conflicting accounts of what they actually experience was
some pilot saying that the object interfered with the plane
sensors, other pilots saying that they didn't really
experience that other pilots saying that when they looked at
the object, they could identify no identifiable, identifiable
propulsion system and they did not know how it was actually air
cruising at that altitude of about 40,000 feet. So this is
all added to the Pentagon's weariness of describing in more
detail what this object actually is until they can get more
information through the debris that they are recovering right
Yeah, no propulsion. It's a balloon. Okay. It's a penis
shaped balloon. I don't like
was a penis shaped cylindrical yet? This cylindrical object was
hanging from the balloon?
No, there's no mention of anything hanging from anything.
You just said that yourself.
Know that? No, the point is, is that there was something there
was a balloon with something hanging from it. And that's what
they're trying to describe. They shot the balloon, nothing comes
down and they're gonna go pick it up. That's what happened. It
was another Chinese balloon. They don't want to prom with the
Chinese. They just want for some reason the public is not allowed
to think any more about the Chinese balloon because the
Chinese are gonna have a big meeting with Yellen. And they
don't want anyone to interrupt it. This is bankers. They're
gonna get together and they're gonna divvy up the world and
they don't need any aggravation with some damn Chinese balloons
anymore. The Chinese balloon thing is off the table. Don't
talk about it. Make it sound like a flying saucer do
And this is your this is your conclusion. It's what it's
about. Yeah. Yellen. Is that our clip? Here Yellen.
Yeah, here's Yellen. She said this is not covered too much.
But Yellen. The last time there was a Chinese balloon they had
to interrupt a meeting. And it was like maybe it was important.
Maybe it wasn't this meeting is important.
China's as their welcomes US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen
is willingness for a visit. A spokesperson for the commerce
ministry says it's important that the two countries maintain
communication, noting that Chinese Vice Premier Li or her
held constructive talks with Yellen at the Davos Forum in
Switzerland last month. She added that China opposes the US
to impose unreasonable sanctions on Chinese companies in
violation of Market Economy and International trade rules. Well,
interesting. So we both have a conclusion of what this is about
that is ultimately based on finance. Is what you're saying
this is something about the finance system. Yeah, it's
finance. All right. Well, well, I love that we both were coming
at it from different angles. I have historical receipts to say
that I believe you may be right. The one of the most notorious
economists in finance in the United States is of course, Paul
Krugman. Paul Krugman, a favorite. In fact, the favorite
economist of the former New York banker, he always loves crazy,
Krugman is really a good he's a good economist. And I think we
think he's a douche. And he's I think he's a spook too well, and
he has everything wrong. He's wrong most of the time. Yeah.
However, 10 years ago, as we were nearing the end of the
Great Recession, he had a theory on how to fix everything, which
of course, kind of did happen, but not really in the way. I
mean, it's shoved everything under the rug. And now 10 years
later, we know that why do we have all these horrible finance
things happening is because they never cleaned up what they did
in the 2008 2009 1011 12. And he took this theory, not yet
everywhere, he used this, it's just got a minute of it. He used
this theory on multiple shows PBS. Even while Bill Maher would
be kind of a funny show, but he meant it and this is him on
Fareed Zakaria's show, the anti constitutionalist douche who was
also on CNN, but a serious program so you don't you don't
make jokes on Zakaria show. And this is what Paul Krugman idea
was to save the finance system. The first time it was in trouble
again, maybe Boston's Big Dig was listed. was fine after all,
think about World War Two, right? That was not that was
actually negative for social product spending. And yet it
brought us out. I mean, partly because you want to put these
things together, if we say, Look, we could use some
inflation. Ken and I are both saying that which is of course
anathema to a lot of people and in Washington, but it's in fact,
what the basic logic says, it's very hard to get inflation in a
depressed economy. But if you had a program of government
spending, plus an expansionary policy by the Fed, you could get
that so if you think about using all of these things together,
you could accomplish, you know, a great deal and if we if we
discovered that, you know, space aliens were planning to attack
and we needed a massive buildup to counter the space alien
threat. And really, inflation and budget deficits took
secondary place to that this slump would be over in 18
months. And then if we discovered oops, we made a
mistake there aren't actually any so we need art and better
what you're saying. Oh, that's that's a there was a Twilight
Zone episode like this in which scientists fake the alien threat
in order to achieve world peace Well, this time we don't need
it. We need it in order to get some fiscal stimulus.
I'm all in on that. I mean, you have inflation but maybe he
wants more I think this is the Krugman playbook.
Well, this idea about lying about some balloons and then
trying to bring space aliens into the picture isn't going to
work a lot. No, it's not going to work on you. It's just what
bothers me I you know, whether or not there's some screwball
scheme afoot what bugs me the most is that there because
anyone who heard the the general from Canada so as the shutdown
the balloon boom, blew it up blew up the whole light you
know, the whole scam, but why did they continue with this and
then a cost this eclipse, which really make this very
suspicious? What what is the point of the news media going in
this direction instead of trying to get to the bottom because
they're told to do this obviously. Well, the people
obviously the Yes, but the news media that was covering that
weren't covering the Pentagon. Those clips were great because
they were trying to they probably knew, I don't think any
of them heard the generals say it was a balloon because that
was pretty obscure, but they don't find out about it. It's
just I don't understand what is the point of of this kind of
obfuscation because of some couple more balloons floating
around? How about that it's gonna screw up the meetings are
we are the public's gonna get all pissed off at the Chinese
and you can't go meet with Yeltsin or No, it just is
bothersome to me that the media and since I played the Al
Jazeera clip, it goes International is all in on this
and they're just there. It's just a disservice to the public.
What the mainstream media is disturbing the public.
Let's listen gambling. Let's listen to
the BBC. The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
has said the United States military fighter jet acting on
his orders has shot down a high altitude airborne objects over
northwestern Canada. Here's our North America correspondent
Notice how we get the Brits and they take our guys, it's amazed
Trudeau said he ordered the shooting down of an annoyance a
Brit identified object that had violated Canadian airspace. In a
tweet he confirmed that Canadian and US aircraft was scrambled
and that an F 22 fighter jet successfully fired at the
object. Mr. Trudeau said he'd spoken with President Biden and
that Canadian forces would now recover and analyze the wreckage
and military mission is also continuing on sea ice off the
Alaskan town of Deadhorse. To recover debris from the other
unspecified airborne object shot down on Friday. In a statement
the US Northern Command said that operation was moving slowly
due to freezing temperatures, snow and limited daylight.
Officials said they still had no further information to offer
about the purpose and origin of the object, which was earlier
said to be about the size of a small car. Peter burrows with
out just coming in breaking from Bloomberg. China getting ready
to take down an unidentified object flying over waters near
the port city of Queen Dow which is home to a major naval base
for the People's Liberation Army Chinese news outlet the paper
reported shows how they're everywhere. This just came out.
It was interesting is they NBC report I think was in the second
half of these clips. I didn't have it but Biden comes on and
says that he ordered he ordered it shot down. I think I have
that so I think the news media should go after that little
contradiction. Let's see this. Was he ordered it and you say
you ordered it. I'm going to love to hear what they have to
say about that. Here's
the seat now. I think see did CBS break this because that's
what we need to know who broke it who was the breaking. It's
got to be CBS. This is such an Intel operation one way or the
other. It if they if they really don't want him to know about it,
they can just get rid of it. I don't know. Let's listen to CB
in Washington also the extraordinary rebuke in
Congress. The house today voted unanimously 419 to zero to
condemn China for its Newly uncovered balloon surveillance
program. Okay, so it's the surveillance program.
CBS is David Martin is at the Pentagon tonight with new
details on the highly sophisticated spying equipment
that was found on that balloon.
I just want to point out that unlike balloon one, which I and
we have some interesting aviation aviator clips listen to
no one has seen balloon two or balloon three there was no video
it's just in our mind. It's the size of a car it's cylindrical.
No one has seen it it got shot down you know there's there's no
video like the in the water of the first one. It could be a
total it could be 100% Bullshit. We don't even know if it's true.
Would you agree with me?
Well listening to the Canadian general and who seemed like a
pretty no nonsense guy he said it was shot down specifically by
a specific missile. Yeah, I think it was true. I think there
was a balloon I think there was another one in Alaska I don't
think this was a complete fabrication.
Okay, let's continue with CBS
as FBI evidence teams started shipping pieces of the balloons
wreckage off to the lab US officials said underwater
you have to go back now because she says specifically will be
when she introduced this guy who's always been connected.
Play the beginning of that first part of that clip again because
there's something else stopped when it when it gets to it. They
specifically said that they haven't recovered this the stuff
that's at the bottom of the ocean yet that I know of. Have
it's so confusing. I've only seen them pulling pieces of
balloon into the boat. Yeah, and this is balloon one right? This
is the one we know is yeah, this one we're talking about talking
about balloon one by balloon
here in Washington also the extraordinary rebuke in
Congress. The house today voted unanimously 419 to zero to
condemn China for its Newly uncovered balloon surveillance
I just want to ask what is the point of Congress stopping their
busy day to vote on condemning a spy balloon program? Do we
really need a vote? It was anyone gonna was it was Rand
Paul gonna vote against it? I mean, I don't understand. Why
did he need a vote? Of course we're, of course we don't want
Chai if it's true, we don't want no reason.
You're absolutely correct. This is bogus. Thank you.
CBS David Martin is at the Pentagon tonight with new
details on the highly sophisticated spying equipment
that was found on that balloon. Okay, right
there. Yeah, highly sophisticated
spying you know it's highly if they haven't dug it they're
still dragging this stuff off the bottom of the
ocean. David Martin. He CBS Why do you question it citizen.
As FBI evidence teams started shipping pieces of the balloons.
They got pieces of it wreckage off to the lab lab US officials
the lab. What lab but then
it's taken it off to the lab. How did he know it's highly
Underwater pictures of the debris show the electronics it
was carrying survived the fall from 60,000 feet mostly intact.
I haven't seen this picture they got pictures they have pictures
I'm not saying
they already have a good idea of what divers will find because
before the balloon was shot down you to spy planes flew by taking
high resolution photos of what officials described as an array
of antennas for intercepting communications.
I get that information
is the Pentagon tree I want to use other words with this is
probably the Congress that I'm not going to have you guys have
to help me understand why this baby wasn't taken out long
before Oh, here we go. Oh, this is this is military industrial
complex time ladies and gentlemen. I have I'm so angry
there's words I could use Why don't you guys take it out? His
You're missing the real good point. Why wasn't this baby
taken out? Is that what he said?
Yeah, ah, well, what kind of work yeah, and what world is
let's say he was saying
that I'm not going to you guys have to help me understand why
this baby wasn't taken out long before
Wow, that's a good catch. John, what kind of baby Why would you
use that term? This baby this baby like little fat man. And
what baby What baby? Yes,
that's I John tester is the Democratic senator from Montana,
where the balloon hovered over a field of 150 silos, housing
intercontinental ballistic missiles, apparently trying to
listen in on the communications use With the command and control
of nuclear weapons
know that I got a problem. Oh, please, you need a balloon to
apparently listen in on the communications.
How about word Bronco out in front of
one of those Viper things get the self I mean come on that
seems a little incredulous used for the command and control of
nuclear weapons. Yeah, because that's all you need is you need
a balloon, you can pick up the command and control of nuclear
I got a problem with with a Chinese balloon flying over my
state, much less the rest of the country soon after the balloon
was spotted in the sky.
What the heck, what does that mean? Much less the rest of the
country. Or maybe it just means you're missing. I got a problem
with flying over my state much less. Right?
It's just a phrase. It's a funny phrase.
Plus the rest of the countries does soon after the balloon was
spotted in the sky. But what the heck is that? A US official said
it stopped hovering over the missile field and proceeded
across the rest of the country. Apparently abandoning its spy
mission, but still communicating with controllers back. Wait a
know that they're building the story for us right here talk
about a narrative that is unproven. It's just It's just
I love it. I love it.
According to US officials, China has a fleet of high altitude
balloons, which military has used as a cheap alternative to
satellites to fly over some 40 countries around the world? Oh,
satellites are expensive. China can't afford them. This
is a best price. This is a Chinese version. Oh no Chinese
cannot afford it. Satellite. We got best price we do balloon
while the public now. Now let's I want to play these clips from
aviation is racist. What you Yeah, the way you characterize
it, but yeah. So Aviation Week has has a podcast with editors
of the magazine. And these are people you know, balloon pilots
are also aviators. So this there's a lot of knowledge about
balloons and how they work. And there were some very interesting
questions that they raised in, I've got three clips here. So
first about about the original spy balloon, the there's
something that we don't know anything about balloons other
than you love them, and I won't fly in them because they land in
controlled crash. But here's, here's the here's something that
neither of us knew
this balloon was different than all the others that we've seen
before, in the sense that it still used what appeared to be
that super pressure, pumpkin shaped envelope, helium envelope
that we've seen with other types of this kind of ultra long
endurance balloon. But it had, instead of having this
translucent fabric in the envelope, it had an opaque
envelope. And that's that's pretty important because it
means that they figured out a way to reflect the energy from
the sun away from the balloon, so that the solar energy didn't
go into the the helium inside the gas bag, increase the
temperature of that helium, which increases the pressure,
which then causes the balloon to explode. You know, that's why
all the previous balloons we've seen like those have been
translucent at those altitudes and and for those durations. So
allow that solar energy to pass through the balloon and minimize
the amount of heat that gets created within the helium
structure itself. So for them to be able to figure out how to do
that and keep the overall weight of that structure that fabric
structure down to a point where they can still have a useful
payload and look like that a pretty substantial payload you
know is is is impressive achievement that people are
going to try to be figuring out in the especially in the high
altitude balloon community.
The first of all, it's fun to know there's a high altitude
Wow. Well, that's probably the most important thing is getting
the debris of the balloon itself. Yeah, with that outer
fabric was I think it was silk.
Chinese and silk very calm
the New Silk Road. Yes, it's in the air as well. Well, then
there was a question about the the shoot down and how you would
actually do this with the weapons that were used as
a 200 foot tall balloon, any holes you put in it even with 20
millimeter rounds from a f 22 cannon. You know, it's just
going to leak out and it will take several days for the
balloon to actually descend to the ground. So
that's part of the answer that we were seeking is well why
don't you shoot the balloon and cricket because it would take a
lot even with an F 22 missile or rocket as he said, it would take
several days for it to deflate and float down to the ground. So
there's the if they
shot the balloon with the With the Bullets Over Montana, they
could have attracted all the way to the ground and picked it up
intact. Yeah, but they did, because it was two days that did
at least two days. Yeah.
So that's one issue. So then you have to go to missiles. But then
what do you aim at the, you know, that helium balloon itself
is a void, you know, so even if the missile hits it dead on
target, it will just pass through it. And there's a
potential I won't even fuse and explode. So what they did, of
course, was they aimed, it appears at the superstructure
truss, below the balloon, where they could get a heat return or
a heat signature for that imaging infrared speaker on an A
9x. And that was early enough to do it. But even then, nobody's
tested in a 9x, at 50,000 feet, from an F 22, or any other
aircraft, or you just don't have dogfights at that at that
interesting display of weaponry of using this and showing how
effective it is, could have also been a sales pitch for all we
So well, they use the same missile on that one in Canada,
as the A 9x is ascending from 50,000 feet launchpoint, up to
the target somewhere between 60 and 65,000 feet, that's the
that's the most detail we've gotten where the target actually
was. You know, it may have to maneuver or do some terminal
maneuvers and the end game now this is not, you know, the
balloon is not evading and it's not running away. So it's, you
know, it's still a pretty easy target. But would it have enough
authority in its control surfaces up there, and that very
thin air to actually hit that target? Obviously, it did. And,
you know, and they probably weren't worrying too much about
it at that point. But I bet that they were probably doing some
pretty hardcore analysis in that three or four day period between
when, you know, they started looking at it and got the
authorization to shoot it down. And when they actually shut it
down, because I started saying, you know, if they missed that
shot, you know, just how bad that would have looked in front
of the entire world, with video cameras clearly showing the
first shot missing or the second shot missing, and maybe getting
it on the third one.
I just thought that was interesting, because
that's interesting, for a couple of reasons. One, it may have
they may have decided to shoot it down over Montana. But then
this public relations issue a pro while we've never been able
to use that missile for this and that, oh god that they had to
have all these meetings, right. So as by the time they got
around to it, it was off the off the coast.
And then that explains why they missed the shoot downs over
Canada and the Yukon, or I'm sorry, Alaska and the Yukon.
Were they right away because they already knew the missile
worked. Right. Right. Didn't dilly dally. Well, and
there's that's the last clip here How interesting. NORAD
also had project Pathfinder, where they went back for other
reasons. And we've analyzed all the radar data, and use machine
learning and AI algorithms to refine how they how they can
tell the difference on secondary and primary and primary radars
between aircraft and birds and birds, so that they don't have
some of the mistakes that they've made in, in previous
years with that, that might have filtered into this as well. But
once they the characteristics of this, wait, what?
we've been shooting birds know you've worked with kind of
mistakes that these some poor Pelican going bike and hit by
one of these things. Hey, man,
we're glad we could tweak the algo save the Pelican tweaked
in previous years with that, that might have filtered, let's
go back. And will that was pretty funny. So that they don't
have some of the mistakes that they've made in in previous
years. With that,
I guess. So. I guess they've shot some bird. My birds aren't
real. No, we all know the birds aren't
filtered into this as well. But once they had the
characteristics of this new balloon, you know, and were able
to analyze it very specifically, they could probably go back
through their their radar data and identify other cases very
So that problems are the first one probably helped them get the
radar signature, so they could figure out and so they could
know what's a balloon. It's a balloon people. But yeah, that
is not the narrative. The narrative is questioning what is
it? Oh, whoa, whoa, no obvious propulsion mechanism.
No. It's a nice magic.
What flies without an obvious propulsion mechanism I it's hard
to think of one of the first things that ever was airborne in
history. Manmade was a balloon. You Now Oh man it but it makes
it exciting and I love that China now has won and we it's
well documented that we have high though to buy the program
you brought some of that up earlier which is this maybe the
whole thing was a hoax which I don't think so. But it's quite
possible that the Chinese one is a hoax just to balance things
out Sure. Sure. So they can have their little financial meetings
divvy up the world who knows what's going on? I don't know
what Yeltsin and his guy Yeltsin, Yeltsin, Janet of all
Janet Yeltsin. It's Yellen
may stay with the LCM. With you,
I'm with Yeltsin. I think Yeltsin is funny so I guess
we know her name is Yellen. So she said the head of a melon so
she had a meeting with somebody with a Chinese guy in Davos and
they guess they were having a good time yak and yeah, and they
decided on something and they have to finish this off I guess
they had to go to so she's gonna I don't know what's gonna happen
but I it's very suspicious. That's just fantastic night was
not the narrative or the public's getting whatever's
going on with China.
Yeah, but we'll see. I love this this morning's with Bloomberg.
So it was launched properly. They sent this center press
release to the right outlets, because Bloomberg will make a
difference over print anything and so what the crazy especially
it has to do with climate change. I don't know what this
is the China over the port. So I don't know. I don't know. But
there was all kinds of great stuff and I love that they're
gonna, you know, they're feeding the algos. Because, of course
that means that the answers for our defense come from chat GPT
you know, is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a balloon? I'm
asking the question, please try GPT can I be of assistance?
Yeah. Do we shoot it down or not? So then we have I would say
as predicted the massive failure of this chat GPT bowl crap. I
mean, of epic proportions. It. You even said that this Google
Bard, which you immediately said Google barf which I love because
now I use it everywhere the Google barf out. That bought
failed. a multibillion dollar duel is underway to be the front
door of the internet of race start Microsoft it's Microsoft
vs bar for official intelligence will surround conversations with
its software and search engine Bing bagel race to announced
similar plans both tech giants trying to change the internet
from a world in which we navigate between webpages to one
where interactive discussions with chatbots gives us
information for a generation. Google has been the verb for
finding things online, and it commands more than 90% of the
search engine market. But Microsoft thanks to its
partnership with chat GBT maker open AI is on the attack. Now
let's see what happened Friday after our show. It definitely is
an arms race
being as Rocket arms raster charts. So much of the world is
organized around serving Google and understand what people are
searching for in Google,
Chinese tech giants Baidu and Alibaba also plan to debut new
AI technology. But while chatbots look authoritative AI
can make mistakes. Google's own demo for its new chatbot called
Bard included a basic factual error. And research has shown
that AI trained to mimic human language picks up our biases.
critics worry the race to make money from AI technology is
moving too fast.
I would love to hear a CEO saying we've got the research
we're capable of making. But we're pausing. And we urge
others to do so as well, instead of just saying, Oh, we're going
to outrace the other
but with billions that started. The race is already on.
Yeah. That woman sounds just like a woman that used to be at
NPR and said advertising or whatever you call it. Yeah. It's
a milieu of these women.
Oh, PR ladies.
Yeah, can I kind of put there also a lot of executives with
this voice, this intonation. This is a joke. Hold on
a second. Hello. I have that clip.
Okay, moving on to money, how corporate underwriting revenues
holding up in the recession. And
yeah, she's just, but of course it was Jill, I think who gave
what about foundation
grants to different stories. Underwriting is underwriting is
is down it's down for everybody.
Let's listen to the lady over here. urge others to do so as
well instead of
sounds more like a person answering asking the question.
Yeah, you're more like a journalist. That would be right,
because PR people mostly
Okay, moving on to money. How are NPR is positive and we urge
others to do so as well. Well, instead of just saying, Oh,
we're going to outrageous
corporate underwriting revenue holding good and what about
got to finish in
two different stories. Underwriting is underwriting is
is down, it's down for everybody. I mean, this is this
is the this is the area that is most down for us is in is in
sponsorship, underwriting advertising, call it whatever
you want. Yeah,
saw the same thing. Now, what I loved about this is so Google
presents Google barf. It fails, the first question that was
asked it answers incorrectly. Because some scientist says hold
that was incorrect. The stock drops 9% $100 billion valuation
wiped off. That was a mistake $100 billion in with one one
stupid question. And this is the point is
Yeah. But don't you have to consider the possibility that
was meant to answer the question wrong. So to get get off this
track, because as you pointed out, this is not good for
It's not good for anything. But I I, you know, I think that
Google is much more on the ropes than we know. If you they still
spend $13 billion a quarter on traffic acquisition costs $13
billion to get people to come to Google, so they can advertise to
them. That's a lot of money. As they're they're doing a version
with everyone does of arbitrage. What does it cost me to get some
people over here? How much can I make on the ads? But, but for
some reason, this chat GPT had caught the marketing. It's and I
think it's also partially venture capital venture capital
firms, venture capitalists who are, in my opinion, mostly
moronic. They, oh, oh, oh, I'm gonna be example. Remember, we
had pod show. And, and we had Kleiner Perkins as one of our
investors, one of the, at the time, one of the big shots,
one of the big shots along with Sequoia, but we dealt more and
Ray Lane Ray Lane was our partner that we dealt with was,
you know, the May he had run Oracle as president, famous,
very famous guy. And so it was in fact, the woman who later
sued for sexual harassment. What was her name?
I can't remember. Ilan.
Ellen Powell, Ellen Powell. I'm gonna say Pow,
pow. Pow. I can't think of when No, I think it was Ellen Powell.
Yeah. Was Ellen Powell. So we're in the middle floating around
writing books. And she's
Oh, yeah. So we're sitting there in the meeting. And yeah, and
we're building pod show. And at the time, things were popping,
things were happening. And along came juiced. Do we remember
juiced j which was some kind of it was from the makers of Skype,
which is, which is the only reason why they got any
attention. And it was some kind of, you know, like, this is a
video streaming thing. It was very, I can't even explain what
it was. But in the meeting, it's and where is it in the meeting?
Yeah, you should really make it more like juiced. Yeah, juice,
like, has to be like juice. And we're like, What are you talking
about, and by the way, Ron blue and then went off and turned it
into me vo to make it look like YouTube. So mistakes are made
all the time everywhere. Whereas podcasting is still here, I
might point out, so when you when you get this chat GPT and
you got to PA man chat, chat. GPT, Microsoft invested in Amen.
And that Elon Musk has that yet. GPT. Look at it. Look at it.
It's doing poems. It's writing term papers. We need to have
this on Google. No worries, said Sundar Pichai, who clearly knows
that this is not artificial. He knows what artificial
intelligence is. And he knows that it's far and you know,
machine learning. He knows there's applications. This is a
parlor trick. Just because it's typing out and you think that
it's you're talking to a human This is great. And he says,
Okay, off, we can do that. We got Google barf. It fails,
right? No, maybe Maybe you're right. Maybe you're right. But I
have story after story of Google is losing control. Google loses
$100 billion of market value after chatbox incorrectly enters
question about Webb Space Telescope. There's apparently a
fairly easy one. So this may just be these companies. I've
said it before they do go away. Big companies, they do end and
new ones come in and replace it. And Google was the darling when
we were all using Alta Vista. That was that was the Search
Engine and Google came in and they had their algo their
algorithm which was the you know how many Have inbound links does
a website have, and that would be deemed the top of the search
results. And they also did it fast because that was their main
marketing is this, this got to you in 1.2 seconds. That was
that was all part of what Google was. And at
this speed was a big deal. But I think people that smart money
was using Alta Vista, but the public in general is using
Sure, then look where that went. Same thing. Yahoo, AOL, MySpace,
you can go on and on. It does happen the new thing, which of
course is tick tock, then you notice tick tock is not doing
any of that. Doing. They know how it works. They have humans,
they have idiots who go oh, you Oh, look at this fool. This is
the restaurant you want to eat at. So, which we know from
research is true. One in two people go to Tiktok before they
go to Google to search for stuff. So Google is in trouble.
And they've also overdone it with sponsored links and paid
for links and stuff they own. And the whole thing, of course,
is a giant scamp. So I love that this is happening. This is
really funny and try to try to make out we got a cool note from
someone in the language business. I see. Meg sees Meg
Meg I think internet. I've been thinking about chat GPT a lot
late even lately and have enjoyed your discussions and
insights on the show. There's a concept in linguistics called
poverty of the stimulus, which refers to children who acquire a
language despite having an incomplete exposure to that
language. That is they never hear all the words in context
and often hear ungrammatical bits of language, yet they still
acquire language to a high level chat. GPT is trained on a much
more complete dataset than any human. The bot can mimic
language, sometimes producing, quote, better output than a
human. But she says I believe the fundamentally human thing
about language is that we learn to speak with a vastly inferior
dataset. So not until they meaning Google barf and
Microsoft and everyone else, train a chatbot to use language
with poverty, written written stimulus like us, I think they
will be on to something. I think that's very interesting. And
that is probably one of the things that we noticed
inherently. When when when these things right right out to talk
to you. It doesn't sound human because it's too much. It's to
the the resolution of the speech is too high. Does that make
Well, I can't say it makes sense. But it's, I can see it
being at play in play, because that's what she claims it means.
I like it.
Now how about this?
I liked the observation
that Well, I have a boots on the ground from someone in the
voiceover and audio book business. How about that?
Yeah. Now you're talking I have
a little boots on the ground for AI and voiceover. I'm a newer
audio book NARRATOR It's a side gig for me three to five books a
year. The expense the training learning the technical side and
actual time spent is intense. This this is insight that I
didn't have I'm very pleased that our this is Hello, this is
no agenda show. Our producers are boots on the ground. Go read
our mission statement. You can see that this is how we operate.
have someone in every field of expertise.
I'm waiting for my balloon wireless. I'm
waiting for the balloon pilots to show up. Yes, we probably
Oh definitely. The expense of the truck. I said it for an
eight hour book. It can take five times the amount of time
that I can believe that narrators make money three ways.
Pfh which is per finished hour by royalty only or smaller Pfh.
So per finished hour, plus royalty. A lot of newer
narrators do royalty only to get their foot in the door. My
experience is very difficult to actually make money on that. I
no longer do royalty only I believe it too. Not to mention
because I'm sure they screw you just like the record business.
It's the whole thing everything everything. Yeah, of course
not to mention delivering compelling, compelling
storytelling and trying to do weird character voices. My
Voiceover colleagues especially in audiobooks are in an absolute
uproar over AI. Find a way voices is a large audio book
distribution hub. Think of a dating website for authors and
narrators plus the distribution to all places audio books are
sold. Find a way voices who are now connected to Spotify has
language buried in their contract that states the audio
provided may be used to assist to assist machine learning for
Oh, yeah. Yeah, I see where that's going. But I think I have
a counter argument to what our friend here has to say, Okay.
Hello, I'm listening waiting for your counter argument. Oh, I
tell you, I tell you, you're still reading from him.
Doesn't matter. But. So the there is more. But the point is,
well, yeah, here's, let me just finish it. It's it's opt out of
the contract. So unless you know about what's going, what's going
on, when you read this, they can use that your voice unless you
opt out of the contract to be trained for AI. And as far as I
can see, also use the samples from your voice that and I have
the language here. So I believe that that is,
I believe, yes, I do believe that will be what they're gonna
do, yes, then they're gonna do with actor scenario. And that's
where you have to be on the top, you have to be on the head of
that you have to be ahead of this. Yeah. But my thinking was
the following that the voice guy can do train his own voice into
the AI and then have when he's given an assignment to read a
book, use the AI and then clean it up later, instead of spending
40 hours on an AI on what would he say was 10 to five to 110 to
155 times five to one says, instead of spending 50 hours on
it on a 10 hour read, just have the don't spend any time just
have your phony voice, do the read and then go in and clean it
up or you have to do little voices and stuff, do a cut ins,
and it would probably take half done by the time it takes right
now. That's what I was thinking.
So that works once and then it's all done. I mean, it's clear
that you are right. No,
not not if it's in the contract. Here's what has to happen. I've
said this on the show before I'm gonna say it again. There has to
be new laws written so your voice your distinctive voice is
copy written and owned by you.
Yeah, I'm in agreement with that. But guess what, that's not
going to happen fast enough. It's all it's just look, we have
Chinese balloons. got no time for this. We have need
resolutions to say we disagree with blown
just tell you this has to be done immediately. Yeah,
no dream on. That's not going to happen. It is going to happen
immediately. No. Not gonna happen immediately. It's
gonna happen quick.
Nah, okay. Well, I hope so. Because you're the first one to
To use a phony. Yes, you are used to me but on the new, the
new no agenda show somehow. Without John C. Dvorak. Yes,
Adam, you're totally correct.
Why did you say John?
I don't think you're right.
That in fact, we're not it's only gonna be John C Dvorak
anymore. It's gonna be my sidekick. Thank you, Adam. I
love working with you. You're good you're on the money there
you so much better than John I know his rubbers were loose. So
you know it's really I can do this all day. In fact, I don't
even come don't even come on the next show
so there's that dead button is on the I made this
one. I made this one myself. I tuned it is not standard. You
got to use the systems there was an update so of course I was
playing with it. That's my that's my that's I
liked that guy.
Thank you, John. This is our exit strategy. Sometimes I'm on
That guy is good. Isn't he is a guy I like it when we get to
give him a name.
Okay, well, how about a name? Can I be of assistance? Okay,
what's his name? We got to give him a name.
I think it's Zippy comes to mind.
I'm zippy. Zippy. Zippy, the AI of the no agenda show?
Yeah. Alright. Zippy in the house, zippy. Zippy is now our
official co host when whenever we need information we can
always call on Zippy because as we know Zippy is always right.
I'm glad you like it. Unexpected.
I think people that listen to this show have to think to
themselves. Podcasts is not as easy as it sounds right.
Thank you. Thank you. It's 40 years of experience here ladies
I have the Zippy character just show up on the show out of the
Well, you know, it's zippy, how do you have your character show
up on the podcast out of the blue? Why? Because it's the best
podcast in the universe. There you go.
You know what it's a little like this guy know, Freddie the fire
hose or whatever they guys know.
It's ready to fire walk. Hey, I don't
like that guy. It's me now. Debbie I think Zippy is a little
more upbeat. And what's the
boy he's totally zippy.
Positive Yeah, positive. That's it's a little more like this is
almost like an audio version of a ventriloquist. Yeah, that's
what it is. Is it any point if he can come excuse me, I gotta
say something shut up for a second zippy. No, I got
something important to say. All right. What do you want to say?
Nothing. There you go. Yeah. You know, this is a whole new
Oh, he has three people. We've got three. Dummy. Woodhead,
Marty can even write bits for him. I mean, now Margaret, and
that's what Marty is going to be good at. No, we have to temper
Zippy though, but thank you. We have a name. Zippy is in the bag
right now. So the I think we just have to talk for a moment
about the pushback the enormous pushback on see more Hirsch's
substack article about who blowed up the North Stream to
I read it after the show. And what did you What did you think?
It's very classic Seymour Hersh. Lot of confidential sources. A
little, a little bit of embellishment, I believe, but
not too much. I think he's gone to money. I think generally
speaking, he blew this out of the water. I did is a little
different than that read earlier thesis that it was UK. There was
a couple of there was a number of things. But this was this
made the most sense. And coming from him and it was well put
together. I'd liked it a lot. I think he's he nailed it. And got
Well, it got pushed back is what uh, got it. So first, there was
a press briefing at the State Department. So Jake Sullivan was
taking it on and it's the audio sounds a little thin. I'm not
sure what happened. Why, why? Why it's so Theano. From the
microphone that the journalist and no, Matt, by the way, I was
I was waiting for Matt to show up with a question, but I
haven't found one of him of his yet. This is one of the one of
the reporters who I recognize from the State Department
briefing room. And here's here's a snippet.
I'm sure you're aware of the new report from Seymour Hersh, how
America took up the Nord Stream pipeline and the White House's
denial of any involvement given the long standing opposition to
the pipeline, Secretary Clinton's calling its demise a
tremendous opportunity. And Secretary under secretaries of
state no one's saying that the US officials were pleased with
the production of the pipeline, especially the secret of
investigation. Do you think the US government's denial of
involvement is credible? I absolutely do. And I repeated
here. Let me follow up on that, if I might, have you or anybody
else in the State Department have any communication with
German Norwegian ambassadors or other allies or officials on
this matter, on the matter of Nord Stream to on the matter of
the latest allegations? Which apparently, it is source, it is
a fairly it is it would be would not be? It would it would not be
typical for us to engage allies and partners on something that
is utter and complete nonsense, and
I love this. So, no, of course, we wouldn't engage allies and
other other entities on something that's nonsense is so
It would not be typical for us to engage allies and partners on
something that is utter and complete nonsense. And that
should be rejected out of hand by anyone who is looking at it
through through an objective lens. Yes, go ahead. With one
more aspect on this. One of the allegations that are made is
that it was taken off the CIA in order to prevent involvement of
oversight as a covert operation to meet the peace. I'm familiar
with familiar with it. One of his allegations is that it was
taken off the ground rather than let this this propaganda be
aired in the briefing room,
rather than let this propaganda be aired in the briefing room or
Did you read the piece? I'm familiar with it. One of his
allegations is that it was taken off Route rather than let this
this propaganda be aired in the briefing room. Let me just say
it is a fundamental misunderstanding of oversight in
our US Congress beyond getting his facts entirely wrong as he
has before in very high profile ways. It is a fundamental
misunderstanding suggest that
I love to discredit station here, rather than you get Things
rot in rather high profile ways he's gotten things wrong. What
was that? Was that the the My Lai Massacre or was that the Abu
Ghraib prison torture? Was that wrong and hope high profile
ways? What was that? What did he screw up our award? Pulitzer
Prize winning award winning journalist, investigative
journalist, Seymour Hersh, why did he screw up? Which Where was
he? So oh, the Russian collusion, story collusion. So
that's, that was where he really screwed up, if I recall, because
he was wrong, and was probably
if they had her, she does have a bad habit. And if they wanted to
smear him, they could they could do this at the age one of the
agencies that they put it together, they put some time
into it. I don't think they do. I think he's a an asset. I think
the agencies, the Intel agents,
who's an assets, Hirsch is an asset.
I think he's an asset because he because he does dig through
stuff. He does find leaks. He
is an asset for who I don't understand what you're saying.
We say an asset. I
think he's an asset for the for the spy agencies. Ah, because he
shows them that here's where you screwed up. And it's like,
here's another look, look what I found. You guys aren't very good
at this. I because I just here's the whole story. Ah, here he is,
again. Because if they wanted to smear him and get him out of the
picture completely, they could do it because he's known amongst
all monks, journalists, even who know him. Well. He's known for
saying screwy stuff. Yeah. In public. Yes. He never writes.
Anything that's that's inaccurate, or far as he's
concerned, is writing is impeccable. But when he goes and
give speeches, he says weird stuff that he never writes up
that if you documented it, you could ruin him.
Let's listen is another 30 seconds.
Well, one of his allegations is that it was taken off Route
rather than let this this propaganda get aired in the
briefing room. Let me just say it is a fundamental
misunderstanding of oversight in our US Congress, beyond getting
his facts entirely wrong, as he has before in very high profile
ways is a fundamental misunderstanding suggests that
our intelligence community is not subject to oversight. Anyone
who writes that anything or writes anything like that? No,
no. No, no. Roads, it was taken off of.
Can you back it up? Does this guy actually say our
intelligence community is not subject to oversight
as before, and very high profile ways? AI is a fundamental
misunderstanding suggests that our intelligence community is
not subject to oversight.
You got it right. Yeah. Okay. Anything racist?
Okay. Yeah. Well, so
that was part of the part of the interview, or the interesting
part of the article, which I haven't highlighted, was that
once it's taken out of the intelligence community move to
if we the way President Biden and Victoria Nuland said that,
you know, we know how to do it, something changed, and they did
not have to report to Congress that is the illicit ticket.
technicality the Calculate. And so Sullivan is saying that's not
Anyone who writes that anything who writes anything like that?
No, no, no, no, that you wrote that it was taken off of a CIA
and put under military in order to our military is also subject
to rigorous oversight. The answer is yes. You recognize and
abide by the War Powers pause in such a situation and the War
Powers resolution in a situation your question is if we abide by
the War Powers resolution in a situation that never occurred,
you know, any situation or any situation involving US military,
we do abide by the more powers. We follow the law in every
instance. Yes. War Powers resolution, we follow the war
power resolute War Powers resolution and the broader law
in every instance. Yeah,
he said in the broader law, so that was that I am not a lawyer,
so I can't really figure out if he's right or not,
but we have to be a specialist lawyer to not just any lawyer.
um, you know, I have some qualifications.
Yes. Shut up zippy. So that just it sounds squirrely, what he's
doing there sounds squirrely, it was fun to watch.
This is a horrible situation that Hearst is uncovered. Verse
her shirt. Again, eventually he's uncovered a situation
that's inexcusable. We can't be doing this.
What was cool about Of course, I read the Dutch press, actually
and Scylla sent this to me. To RTL news. Yeah, RTL is
entertainment organization, but okay, they have news, RTL news.
They reported on this you know, some Hirsch claims to have
evidence and whistleblower and everything inside source that
the Americans blew up the pipeline that they did it and so
that of course had to be stopped because you know the there they
got the message late or the memos Oh no, no. So they put an
overlay on top of the story you know, so that you see that first
before you read the story about the story. And I said, we need
to be really careful about this story because this guy is a
known disinformation journalist. Why wait and wait for it could
because the last time he said anything that you know, the last
time you report on anything that was true, was Watergate. They
don't even have the right guy. They're thinking Woodward and
Bernstein. sigh Hearst didn't report on Watergate. Not that I
recall. But that's how stupid this is. Oh, we gotta put
something we got discredit him. Watergate. It's an old guy. Oh,
one of those guys. Yeah. Watergate. Wow, that stupid. Now
I have a supercut. Just to remind us, just to remind us,
the collusion and the equal messaging from politicians, the
intelligence community community, the high altitude
balloon community, and the media. This comes from mata aebs
substack. It's a video done by ORF, then you need to see the
whole it's almost eight minutes, but you just tell me when you'd
like to stop. It is and everyone i You must go watch this
supercut. And you'll recognize many of the voices and Oh,
surprise, it's across the board. It's Republicans, it's
Democrats. It's Fox News. And CNN. They were all all all in on
there will be no longer a Nord Stream to we will bring it into.
But how will you how will you do that?
I promise you will be able to do.
So Russia's Nord Stream pipeline I
mean, we've have to conclude without the evidence that is
most likely Russia
Russian sabotage on its own infrastructure
for the common sense matter. I think it's Putin his way of
sending a message what Putin is saying to us by blowing up his
pipeline is, look, I can blow up a pipeline. Everyone knows that
Putin did this themselves closest thing to a smoking gun
without the direct proof.
logic and common sense will tell you that without the evidence,
was behind the incident. You can see it for sure who
sabotaged the Nord Stream two pipeline, the Russians. I love
the certainty and I appreciate the insight. Yeah, there's
exactly one country on that list of suspects bread. And Russia
wouldn't rush it would be yet it's hard to imagine others with
a significant motive,
but we will bring in Nord Stream to not move forward who did it
why not Mr. One way or another Nord Stream two will not move
forward but it remains
unclear who could have been behind the Nord Stream pipeline
made explicitly clear to anyone involved with constructing this
pipeline as the consequences of doing so are catastrophic Fred
crews would do such a thing like this I mean
that offers tremendous strategic opportunities
still don't know who caused damage to the natural gas
pipelines US Secretary of
State warned against the pipeline
Nord Stream pipeline mystery continues us
says they'll do everything to stop the Nord Stream pipeline
we do everything we can and I have no
idea who is responsible she'll Nord Stream to nail put
an end to use all the tools available
stop the Nord Stream to
and let it rust the neath the waves of the Baltic it's almost
inconceivable to think that the US will do is
a member of European Parliament publicly thanks to us for
blowing up the pipelines
this pipeline must be stopped so
we'll do that and why according to US government think tank Rand
Corp the first step to weaken Russia is to stop Nord Stream
two so it's a real mystery
hauled Nord Stream to to stop Russia shut down the Nord Stream
two pipeline stop
things on Nord Stream,
Nord Stream two forever permanently ending it
Once and for all us must take immediate steps to terminate
Nord Stream cancelled the Nord Stream pipeline. Absolutely. We
should cut it off. We must stop this Nord Stream we have made
the Russians that that pipeline is at risk if they move further
can't find anybody who'd be the obvious culprit
in all of this when it comes to North Stream to the pipeline
that would bring natural gas from Russia to Germany. It will
they want some more because I love the story they built on
that's it's it's pretty obvious you know, we everyone's
demanding something happened and then Glenn Monroe shouldn't
blame blame Russia. It's unbelievable how you can get
away with that.
And it's everyone it was want to hear a little bit more.
I think we've heard enough. Okay, but you can play it play
It was a deliberate act of sabotage. And now the Russians
are pumping out disinformation lies gonna bring in
former CIA Director John Brennan
is certainly the most likely suspect Russia is certainly the
likeliest suspect of Russia is most likely behind this Russia
is the likely cause of likelihood
that Russia is behind the attacks are
very likely Russian, likely Russian, it is likely that this
is an act by Russia,
the most likely thing is this. In fact, the most likely thing
Russia is most likely suspect at this point, or too many is
Russia. I've heard people I trust saying that it's just
probably Russia, Vladimir Putin the most like Russia is
likely to blame. I mean, that's totally something Putin would
do. And then go blame it on someone else, essentially a
scenario of cutting off your nose to spite your face here.
would Russia bomb its own pipeline? It doesn't seem to
make sense if you're thinking in a rational actor scenario, but
experts agree that
Russia is experts agree. What's cool, though, is when you see
that thing it you know what, like the hill? What's that baby
face kid named? Who's on the Hill podcast? It's it's left
right is everything. They're all in on it, or they're all in on
it and to an unbelievable degree,
you know? Well, you know, Adam, it's possible that Putin did it
because it makes it makes us look bad. So what he does, he's
tricky. Tricky. Of course.
That's what he does. So
he's gonna invest a few billion bucks in a pipeline and then
blow it up so he can make us look bad.
I get it. I'm with you on that one.
So there are some thing or analysis that's our fine media.
even think twice about Yeah, that's weird.
So is the Lensky wrapped up his his world tour in Brussels at
the European Union? You know, because he went everywhere
pretty much. France did not much reporting on it here because you
know, balloon, or UFO. UFO, here's France to France 24. With
with a wrap up,
it was a case of Welcome home. Welcome to the EU. That's how
European Council chief Charles Michel and greeted Volodymyr
Zelensky. As the Ukrainian President arrived in Brussels.
It's just the latest stop on a tour of Europe that saw him meet
with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. In London yesterday. He
has been pressing European leaders for more military
support and underlining the importance of EU unity in the
face of existential threats. The question of EU membership was
also a major theme addressed by Commission President Ursula von
der Leyen and Zelensky himself. Let's hear from them.
Your fight is a fight for independence in the accuracy for
free Europe. We all heard the urgency of your call to support
Ukraine now now. You're now in a very moving manner about and
praising the European way of life. And to added that
Ukrainians want to come home to this European way of life. And
indeed today, you see we are one family, one vision, and family
members help each other. You can count on us
long term, and Europe will only happen. Ukraine is the bookends
of victory and will become the members Member of the European
Union. This is the unity we've managed to build.
That was the translator for Solinsky and you hear very
clearly what you want peace now. No, not until we're a member of
the European Union.
Well, I have a couple of clips on this. But since you're on
that particular topic, let's play what the Chinese think of
this. This may have changed from NTT. If I screw it, New Tang
Dynasty, I'm going to China China's CGT N and what is this?
Well, this is the Chinese global television network. So this
is the this these guys are propria PRC Pro Child pro pro
Okay, this is China, China on the list. This is how they were
looking at this what you just played this is China Ukraine EU
Okay. European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen
has assured Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky of the
support by the European Union. She says Ukraine and the EU are
one family and that Ukraine can depend on the block support and
his fight against Russia.
I love that our
clips mesh together does that henskee has delivered a speech
to European lawmakers and later addressed all leaders of the EU
members special summit in Brussels. Alex Korea has more
President Solinsky came to Brussels primarily to thank his
European allies, billions of euros have been spent from the
27 Member States and from the European Union on supporting
Ukraine. He also wants to ask for more help make more for
fighter jets. On the other hand accession to the European Union,
a big theme for President Lecky, he said, Look, we want to be
members of the EU. We want those accession negotiations to begin
within a year. That is a different timeline to what the
Europeans are saying Ursula von der Leyen saying, Look, it'll
happen when it happens. It's a merit based system. There is no
rigid timeline. But what is clear is that the Ukrainians
want that access as quickly as possible, and the Europeans are
saying it can happen. It's just a question of whether or not you
put those reforms in place.
Well, hold on a second. I like that because now we're talking
about who's in the EU and who's not in the EU. And there are
many other candidate countries, one of them being Moldova, and I
had to get this clip from wi o n. In Indian news outfit. And
Moldova the government just quit.
His Prime Minister has resigned and the government has
collapsed. The Pro Western government resigned after a
turbulent 18 months in power, marred by economic turmoil and
spillover effects of the Ukraine war. Shortly before the Prime
Minister Natalia got released a statement down the government
said a Russian missile violated Moldova and airspace Russia's
envoy was summoned to protest the SPS violation. Moscow has
troops in Moldova is breakaway region in Transnistria. Russia
has bristled at the possibility of the former Soviet republic
joining the EU. On Thursday, the country's intelligence service
confirmed Ukrainian allegations that Russia has acted to
destabilize Moldova, the former Soviet republics.
Were taking confirmation from Ukraine now. They're the guys
that confirmed something
hey, the country's intelligence service confirmed Ukrainian
allegation. Soviet Republic joining the EU on Thursday, the
country's intelligence service confirmed Ukrainian allegations
that Russia has acted to destabilize Moldova. The former
Soviet republic of 2.5 million has suffered from soaring
inflation and was strained last year by an influx of Ukrainian
refugees. It has also suffered power cuts following Russian air
attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. As dependence on
Russian gas is another issue. The steep price increases
particularly for Russian gas led to street protests last year.
The President and my sons we accepted the religious decision.
However, she has given no sign of abandoning her pro Western
policies, including seeking European Union accession. Last
year in a diplomatic triumph for presidents undo the EU leaders
accepted Moldova as a membership candidate. The government had
been mapping out reforms to accelerate the session to the 27
nation bloc and working on diversifying its energy supply.
So Moldova, under Moldova on deck interesting. Yeah. Well, to
the to the west to the west of Ukraine, I might point out.
So I'm looking I get the other CGT. Right.
Well, I'll just gonna ask you a question. Could they be now
surrounding Ukraine? By bringing Moldova you know, Bo
rushing idea that could be? That'd be pretty tricky.
That'd be very tricky. rooskies I mean, it's to the south men
should say not really not completely to the west, but I
don't have my map. Well, I do to the north of Odessa. So ah, they
it could be it could be a Western Southwestern flank.
piece. Like he said, military parlance. flank. Okay, back to
Now, there was an interesting clip. I've got it. This one is
going to be you're going to like
on his show.
You owe the kid
Cuomo, not the old guy late. The Chris Chris. Chris. Chris is
going to go back to Ukraine today. Oh, because, yes,
Friday because he's brave, very brave.
And throughout this particular episode, I can get some more
examples of this for the next show. But he goes on and every
time he talks to anybody says you think this is important is
me going to Ukraine? No. And by the way, I'll be in Ukraine
Oh, can I just say something about this? I got a note from
one of our guys. Who's in love if I guess so right off the bat.
We're right on the border. Well,
if it is East is is is the western part, right where? West.
And so so the journalists are there, they're embedded, you
know, they're hanging out. And according to my source known to
me, they are whoring and drinking and just going out. And
then in Ukraine, that's what you do. And anyone who writes
something negative about Ukraine is off the party bus. They're
sent home. And then but specifically whoring and
drinking was pointed out to me. Yeah. So Chris, Chris Cuomo is
going to the source of pleasure,
he needs to get laid. He does.
but he lets a little item slip. And what's funny about it is
right after he gives his little spiel, he has a general on and
the general he says like to, like this woman after the
Canadian gen two Gen is looking like a deer in the headlights,
like, what did you just say? And God, I hope you're not going to
ask me about it, which is what he should do. But see if you can
figure in this little this is the opening. This is the bonus
clip, by the way. This is the his little is his lead up to the
to the item that I'm talking about, which is like what, and
then his continuation, and he's oblivious to what he said. And I
want to mention the old saying from World War Two loose lips,
And as always, this shows about you, my brothers and sisters. So
have your say 1-844-968-7720 and get it in, because I'm not here
tomorrow, because we're traveling to Ukraine. We're
gonna leave right after this. Okay. And if everything goes
right, we'll be up and live for you Monday from what is
happening in Ukraine, from somewhere in there that we can
get a signal out. Yeah. Why are we going? Why? Two reasons. One,
it's the one year anniversary of something that was supposed to
just take a few weeks. Okay. And once again, today, Ukraine's
president made an
enlightenment women whose side is he on? When he says it was
only supposed to take a few weeks? What did he believe
Well, I don't know what who said he's, I mean, he's on the up
promotes the war. So he's on that side? I don't know. He's,
he's, he's, I think the guy is not that bright. And what
happens when he tells the next story is like, Wait a minute.
One, it's the one year anniversary of something that
was supposed to just take a few weeks. Okay. And once again,
today, Ukraine's president made an emotional plea for more help,
not just from us, from our allies all around the world all
around the region. And I want to tell you about that. And I know
that there's a little bit of compassion, fatigue, and hey,
they're winning, right? So it's going to be okay. It's their
problem. Quick story. A buddy of mine is taking me into the city
right before now, okay, today, this happened. And he doesn't
seem okay. And I said, what's going on? What's wrong? He says,
he's talking about his limo driver, is that a buddy of mine?
Because that's the kind of friends he would have. The limo
is irrelevant. And he doesn't seem okay. And I said, what's
going on? What's wrong? He says, Oh, I just lost a friend. So I'm
very I'm very sorry, what happened? He said, Well, he was
in the army. And they don't know where he is now. And the rest of
this patrol came back. He wasn't there. So in the US Army was
training. He said, No, he was fighting in Ukraine. I said, Oh,
well, where was it? Oh, it was in this place called Buck moot.
Now, here I am on Long Island in New York, talking to guy I
didn't even know had any connection to the situation.
He's a buddy, though. And his friend is missing and presumed
the worst, hopefully not in the exact same place that my team
and I are about to go to. And you know, how when you hear a
story like that, you say, Oh, what a small world. Yeah, it is
a small world. And there is much more connective tissue, then we
assume that it's over there. It's their problem. It's not
their problem. Russia wanting to rebuild the Soviet Union is
going to be a problem, not just their problem, and there'll be a
lot of connective tissue stories like that when people from here
but ramifications of commerce of fuel of food and of course a
so I'm listening to that saying, wait a minute. Do U S Army. We
have patrols. We have soldiers fighting and dying in Ukraine.
Well, there's two ways to answer this one. I get daily reports of
marks killed in action, US mercenaries. So it just could be
just a mischaracterization that he was US Army versus he's a
mercenary. They fight for money anywhere. And they're in
northern Afghanistan and Iraq and any anywhere anywhere you
need America. We
are sinners everywhere. It used to be a magazine for him.
But how about this clip
to the war in Ukraine and tonight the White House now
confirming President Biden will travel to Poland to mark one
year since Russia's invasion of Ukraine. And tonight Russia now
wrapping up its major new assault. Tom Sufi boorish in
Ukraine again tonight.
David Russia launching a fresh wave of lethal attack drones
kyiv's air defense in action again tonight. It follows
earlier waves of missile and drone strikes targeting
Ukraine's power grid, Russian warships and bombers firing
those 100 missiles, cruise missiles, primarily Ukraine
saying most are shot down, but those that got through hit power
stations across Ukraine. Also today Ukrainian officials
confirming to ABC News, the US has been providing the
coordinates for most strikes against Russian targets with
those us supplied high mass rocket launchers a deeper level
of US involvement than previously known.
That might answer some of our question.
If there you have people over there that are that should not
be over there.
They're painting targets in the field in the field.
Yeah. Or, or who knows where the primary shooting people to?
Yeah, well, yeah, there you go. Advisors, normally advising
advisors. We know that's how it works advisors. There is a
global shift underway and this was highlighted.
By the way before you continue. I would like to note, Cuomo left
it at that he never asked anybody anything about it. Like
it just it's the guy's just he's like oblivious to his own
observation. Anyway, I just find it peculiar, because
I would say that most I think many Americans certainly think
we're at war with Russia. That's how it's been positioned. Now
Heiser is right here and we're sending troops and at a certain
point, when does the general population usually over
socialized uninformed or informed see Chris Cuomo? I
think yeah, this would Yeah, we're fighting them we're
America. We're fighting aren't we and we fight so the we have a
change in or a shift I would say in global what is the word I'm
looking for? In influence influence in the region? And the
and things that have changed since World War Two to now and
of all places? What are you doing?
I'm sorry, I was crushing a can
against your head. Yeah. Okay. When this comes up on the
morning, Joe Show with Joe and Mika, then you know that this
was a message and they brought someone with them in full
uniform. Well, the war
has entered a new stage in recent weeks as dozens of tanks
were pledged by European allies to aid and Ukraine's defense,
with some already on their way. Leading the charge in that
effort is Poland. Late January stressed that even if other
countries did not want to send tanks, Poland would. Joining us
now Polish chief of defense General Ray and J Chuck and it
is really good to have you on board Poland has stepped up
immediately with no debate in so many ways. Tell us about your
visit here and your message to America and other partnering
nations in the aid of Ukraine.
Very good morning. Ukraine is absolutely extremely important
for Poland is this is
the chief the defense the Chief of Defence of Poland is on the
Morning Joe Show in full uniform as now the new center of power
or the balance has shifted towards Poland
very good morning. Ukraine is absolutely extremely important
for Poland is extremely important for reason with global
implications some very very first day we started our support
many domains starting from the human approach observing eight
millions Ukrainians crossing the border a few million still
staying in Poland then we started up social programs
medical programs education for them and he admitted the we
preparation for one thing I can barely understand him because if
the audio is so bad, he's not on set.
He's on set he's on set with his
sounds like he's coming over a phone or something. Do you have
a mic funny?
I can hear him it got it got a low A lot of low end in his
microphone. I don't know why which Okay, they'll have someone
else coming just Just bear with
it is worth it. And she admitted the we started preparation
They're sending equipment, ammunition and anything they
need for, for, for victory,
perfect. Since the
war began Poland, the center of gravity
of NATO and the EU that's the word I was looking for the
center of gravity of NATO.
Since the war began Poland, the center of gravity of NATO and of
the EU seems to have moved east and Poland basically Poland has
been this is an increasingly incredibly important country.
Now how is that going down in Poland, how our poles reacting
to their new central place status in Europe that well,
it's you can feel an every single, single day now the
central gravity from a historical Cold War time design
moved from Germany, to Poland to Warsaw, and geo strategy
matters. And also geography matters and our aspirations for
the Western civilization as well.
The center of gravity moved towards Poland, there's
messaging in here that we don't yet understand.
Well, he specifically said Germany didn't he from Germany
from Yes, from Yes, from Germany. Did you say Eastern
No, he just said Germany
every single single day now the center of gravity from a
historical Cold War time design moved from Germany to Poland to
from historical Cold War designed from Germany to Poland.
Which is by the way more westward.
A curiously says but still
this messaging here that we're just not picking up on yet, but
there's something about this. We heard it, we heard it, but we
don't get it yet. Maybe we should we have
been discussing over the last two or three months how Germany
has been cut out of the picture, trade and how they want to do
one thing or another. And we also discussed the fact that
that little Yes, yes. Be your pooch that tried to take place
to beer hall pooch. Find that nut ball German guy who says
he's trying to get around the fact that Americans are being
too influential in German politics and we're running into
place the prince, the prince, that sort of thing. Something's
up with their Grilli. The Germans aren't going to put up
with this for long
for the Germans that they have nothing but idiots in their
Cabinet who are one by one resigning or making weird moves
to Germany is I think Germany already has fallen. The military
stuff is unmaintained it's crap. Hear that they they got rid of
the woman by blaming her for wearing high heels and saying
inappropriate things like wars, good. Whatever she was doing.
None of this. You're right is definitely a neutering of
Deutschland. That's that is but what do you have left if you
you can lead Poland run thanks. I mean it's what's interesting
in this whole thing is that Hungary which seems to be the
best managed of all these countries, is just shuts up
about the whole deal there back then we can we like are getting
it now. You got to do your own thing. It's good. It's great.
There was it? Yes. It's weird. What's what we're observing is
not easy to understand from our perspective. And we probably
have as much. I think I don't know how anyone else could get
any better than we are. In terms of analysis,
but I'll give you one that we have figured out. This came from
On Wednesday, Elon Musk's company SpaceX said that it is
curbing use of its Starlink satellite communication service
by the Ukrainian military apparently, Ukraine's use of
Starlink. To guide drone attacks against Russian forces is a no
go. The question is why now? SpaceX sent 1000s of Starlink
terminals to Ukraine last year to provide internet
communication now the company is saying that Starlink was, quote,
never meant to be weaponized, and it's taken steps to limit
its use with drones. Starlink relies on a network of
satellites in low orbit around the Earth to provide wireless
communication for the Ukrainian government, and Keith has
condemned the decision by space eggs, accusing the company of
ignoring Ukraine's right to self defense. All right, so
this story is is true but not for the reasons they imply. Ilan
is saying hey Starlink is not intended for military use.
Because you need Star Shield They have the entire Starlink
system rebranded as Star Shield, and you need to pay Star Shield
for your military use, which is much more expensive. You're
trying to get a free deal off of Starlink, which is for
consumers. They this was always a military system. And now, now,
now, Space X, I guess, is is repositioning, excuse me, excuse
me, we need to make money off of this to military industrial
complex. So star shields, what they want their rightful action,
which is what this whole thing was funded for in the first
place. It's always been for military, you can't make
something like that pay off with 100 bucks a month for people
with RVs. No, you can't make that thing.
That person loss leader, you're
you're sending 10s of 1000s of satellites into low orbit. And
you think that a couple of Yahoo's with RVs and people who
can afford $110 a month for internet that's going to pay it
back? No. And he beat him he beat Google. He beat all those
companies. He beat Jeff Bezos know, Bezos is dumb enough to
think that he can sell it to consumers. And maybe he will Did
you see that they're now your pharmacy? Amazon. They've never
been my pharmacy. Oh man, they so you can now order all your
prescriptions drugs via Amazon. And I mean everything and then
in typical Amazon fashion, you go okay, let me get some Prozac.
Prozac $500 a month if you get the generic a month supply $3.99
Yeah, now you're talking Yeah.
Price and best price and you know this this was supposed to
be what? What's this face? The Mavericks guy come on. Come on,
sir. For No, no matter the basketball team. What's his
name? Oh, boy, Shark Tank Man, Shark Tank boy, Mark Cuban,
Cuban. He was he was going to do the cheap alternative pharmacy
and he just got priced right out. 399 for a month's supply of
Prozac. Generic, are you kidding me? This is a bonanza is and
what I was reading the other day I was reading here it is.
Psychologists may soon gain the authority to write prescriptions
under a new legislative proposal. How about that your
Dad that that if I was a psychiatrist, no psychiatrist,
psychologist, psychologist. I know. I said if I was a
psychiatrist, I would make the biggest stink in the world about
this. Yeah, well,
we'll see. And this is this is so that the telemedicine
psychologist is usually some with a master's degree. And, you
know, my sister, she, my
sister, my sister Willow can write me a Prozac subscription
prescription. So we have Amazon it's a subscription. Yes, always
a subscription. Typically, a psychiatrist prescribes
prescribes medication but is not involved in providing talk or
other types of therapy. This is the better help now.com lobby
betterhelp.com I think is the name with the the outfit where
you can talk to a site, you know, they match you with a
psychologist ello Yes. And you can talk to them and you know,
and you you don't have to show your face it doesn't have to be
on video can just be on a phone call and then they're going to
start prescribing you drugs. This is it. This is how the
Democrat party wins.
Yeah, he didn't win all doped up by not
either party benefits from this by the way, everyone becomes so
incredibly susceptible. It's great. It's great. Man, the
drugs in this country. Any drugs you want to look up any? Any
particular drug you need? Do you take any medication?
I can think of a few things you know, buy Adderall be good from
Let's see for good. I can imagine you on Adderall. That
would be that'd be hilarious. Alright, let's see.
Let's see Adderall. Okay. Oh, this is interesting. They have,
so there's Adderall. 4999 for a 60 count pack of one. Then
there's natural XR with an N 2999. For a four Oh, that's for
all okay, that's a 30 car. So it looks like your Adderall. You
can be good for around around 49 bucks from Amazon maybe
available on Amazon Prime. I mean, that's going to put a lot
of kids out of the business and College of selling there to find
something else to do. So while we're still in the Ukraine, this
whole thing I want to get this clip out of the way because this
wasn't played much over here. I get it from China. China
official China, yeah. This Ukraine, Russia, they're gonna
do something about these reactors. They don't want
somebody bombing them by accident.
Russia says is ready to work with the International Atomic
Energy Agency to create a safety zone around this upper Russia
nuclear power plant. Russian officials and the International
Atomic Energy Agency held a new round of consultations on
cooperation in ensuring safety. The head of the nuclear
facilities operator said Russia is providing comfortable social
and living conditions for staff members and their families.
Of course, they don't want that they're protecting it. They
don't want to blow that up.
But they don't want the Ukrainians blowing it up and
They know it they don't want to blow up at all. They just need
to keep it because when this is all over the power needs to be
in the region. I don't Is it actually still connected? Is it
hooked up? Is it running? Do we know that
they don't say? No. I think it is. So
because all we hear is how power is off in Ukraine.
They keep blowing up those substations Yeah, with the
missiles that they supposedly block. There was a big artery
Patriot batteries that we have
big article in the Dutch newspapers about the Dutch
detainees in jail. People who are prisoners, and as we know,
everywhere, prisoners are slaves, they perform slave
services. You know, the, the old joke of their, you know, they
make license plates while true. out it's like Ikea contract
directly with the correctional Corrections Corporation of
America as an example for them to make tables,
and hex wrenches.
Many hex wrenches, but now the so they interviewed some of
these prisoners. They're really they're happy and proud because
now they're making wood burning stoves for Ukrainians.
Yeah, I'm happy to be in jail making wood burning stoves.
At least I'm doing it for for a good purpose and not just for
corporations. I'm gonna feel good peace. And boy did it. I
think we can wrap this as Lenski wrap this up with this Lensky,
who has now a statement of incredible and impeccable
standing. And this is from Sky News. He was the first one the
first one to call in,
you know, just looking at Twitter, just seeing President
Zelensky has just been tweeting. I extend my condolences to the
president overwhelm the people of Turkey and the families of
those who lost their lives in the earthquake in and wish a
speedy recovery to all the injured. We stand with the
people in this difficult time. We are ready to provide the
necessary assistance to overcome the consequences of this
disaster. That's the latest that we're hearing from President
Solinsky. And I'm sure other leaders, other world leaders
will begin to rally around very quickly.
No, yes, she's such humanitarian. took time out who
is busy day
is the go to guy.
He is the go to guy.
So I noticed in that report that they pronounced Turkey instead
of Turkey. Yeah. And I've decided I'm going to start
pronouncing and spelling it correctly now because we do it
with Deutschland. Yeah. And it's Turkey,
Turkey. Turkey. Turkey I thought was turkey.
Well, you can do it heads toward Turkey. Turkey. Yeah,
I'm gonna use the European pronunciation which would be
Well, whatever it is, I've noticed that Al Jazeera is
pronouncing it correctly and I have a report I think they
pronounced it in here. And she GTV is pronouncing it correctly.
And also Tian the Chinese are pronouncing it correctly and is
different is there's a distinct separation now who's pronouncing
it correctly and who's not and people are very slowly moving
over to the correct pronunciation and spelling which
is t t URKIYE.
But when you say correct I mean does that mean that key is
correct. Since that is the official way they may have
gotten me in a corner now. Yes, because you can't make jokes
about key and an ordering a chicken Kyiv
might have chicken key chicken pronouncing it keep just because
this but this is just the turkey up or on And I already screwed
it up Turkey update from Al Jazeera and you can hear the
correct pronunciation within this report six days
off the two devastating earthquakes hit Turkey and
Syria, rescuing any more survivors and the rubble are
beginning to fade on a visit to the epicenter of one of the
quakes. The UN a chief Martin Griffiths said it was the worst
event to hit the region for 100 years. Wretched typo, two steps
will be taken to rebuild broken cities within weeks. He's denied
accusations that building codes were not properly enforced.
Meanwhile, 10s of 1000s are without shelter across Turkey
and Syria. And many are sleeping out in the cold turkey state
media report. 48 people have been arrested for looting. In
total, more than 29,000 people are now known to have died for
them. 24,000 of those are in Turkey, and more than four and a
half 1000 In Syria, but that figure is expected to rise
now. Tell is the because it was northwestern Syria. Isn't that
where the where the beautiful the like the vacation spot is in
I don't know that for a fact. It doesn't
want to say Idlib have to take a look. But 24 25,000 people did
that. That's 2929 Well, what it however
the county that? Well, I do have to if you want to before we take
our break, I do have two more clips about Turkey. Yeah, sure.
And it's about the building codes, which is not being
covered here. But I brought it up on a show previous show which
is there's a building code problem in some of these
earthquake areas. They're not building these buildings
correctly. They they have earthquakes of this magnitude
elsewhere. And the whole place doesn't fall apart and building
them sit there for one minute and you get the filament
collapsing completely pancaking Did you Did you Did you see
any of the number three do you see any of the aerial footage of
the the but the rip in the earth? It's like biblical
proportions. This thing is like holy
crap, a biblical area. So let's listen to this dude. I got two
clips. This is the turret quake. Building codes. Arrest this is
from Al Jazeera. Again.
Tucker's police have detained 12 People have a collapse buildings
in the southeastern provinces of Gaziantep and Sankofa. Those
taken into custody included building contractors, as a big
as more now from Istanbul.
Now we're hearing around 12 People have been detained the
construction of these buildings and two of those here in
Istanbul. Now one of those individuals magma Josh Cohen, he
is responsible for the construction of a 12 storey
building in Pattaya, which had around 250 apartments and that
building came down during the earthquake. Now he was detained
at Istanbul airport he was getting ready to leave for
Montenegro has some cash on him, which was confiscated by
authorities. Now in his indictment, which has been
leaked to the media. Here. He says that his buildings follow
the regulations that he doesn't know why the building came down.
He has other buildings that are still standing, and that he had
followed those regulations. But the public prosecutor has also
put out detention orders and 29 other individuals surrounding
the construction of buildings now questions are being asked of
the government. I've been asked of the government hear around
those building regulations and the standards of construction.
Now back in 2018, there was an amnesty around those building
regulations. In some cases, people just paid a fine and
experts had warned about those standards in the event of an
earthquake. Now those questions continue to remain in the
government denied that building regulations were ignored. But
this question will continue to remain as the weeks and months
Yeah, I mean, I you see the videos like yeah, man that that
the pancaking is actually is actually really annoying. I
mean, yeah, you've you've seen earthquake, earthquakes. It's
rarely a straight down pancaking. No, usually
the thing tips over it's over. Yeah. So here's part two of this
building codes, clips, and this is again not being carried Yeah,
this is important because at least the Turks know there's
liability issues here but then it they don't know how deep it
goes. But people should be aware of the fact that there are
building codes in earthquake zones in the United States. We
have them in California. And and there's inspections that are
inspectors involved, there are governments involved this is a
lot of involvement here on this is going to shake out is going
to end up with a lot of people in jail. Part two,
when Alia we spoke to Sony Azar, a professor at Kadir Has
university he says investigating building contractors could
unveil a much larger chain of violations.
Obviously, these contractors I mean, first of all, they're
innocent until proven guilty, but they may have not followed
the regulations to do that. err, and that will be their
responsibility, but they are not the only ones who would be
responsible, if such is the case, because they are those who
approved those plans. They are those who supposed to inspect
those plans. Those are there are people who give them the permits
are also co conspirators, if you will, should this be proven to
be correct that they have not followed to the, to the letter,
the regulation that exists, building codes or our tender
codes have changed over 150 times in the past 20 years with
there had been quite a number of amnesties. And, of course, all
that made cheating actually a very valuable thing, because
then you make a lot of money, you don't follow the code, and
then you actually pay a little penalty, perhaps, and then you
get away. You get away with it. And right now you get away with
murder literally. Well,
yeah, that's unfortunate.
Yeah, it's very unfortunate, especially for these pancake
Wow. I mean, there's there's a million people homeless. There's
children, they don't even know the children's name.
It's a mess.
Yeah, that's one way of looking at it. I think I have one, one
thing here and then we can take our break. I thought I had one.
Yeah, this is a general report from CBS weekend,
they painstakingly pick through the rubble, desperately
searching for survivors, then their worst fear.
One emergency worker was moderately injured, the rest
unharmed, unimaginable luck. In a place was so little. In hard
hit a Donna, babies and small children received treatment at a
hospital in the southeastern city. Most were plucked from the
ruins by rescue workers, but lost in the chaos were their
names with no one yet to claim them. The fear now is the
earthquake has robbed these babies of their parents, and
quite possibly their identities to do this talks about, we know
what area she was founded and how she got here. Dr. Caslen
says but don't have any address. For other survivors. They grieve
for those they've lost wherever they've been buried. As more and
more fresh graves are dug up in anticipation of mass burials.
The scale of Monday 7.8 magnitude quake, and its many
aftershocks continue to defy comprehension. So to do the
numbers, at least 6000 buildings have collapsed 900,000 People
need urgent shelter, and around 5 million have been displaced
from their homes. Aid has come in from 45 countries including
the US, but for badly hit Syria, just two convoys have made it
into Northwestern in that province. The last remaining
rebel held territory in a country deeply scarred by over a
decade of civil war. It's a grinding complex secure Musa was
born into he was found after four days trapped under the
rubble in the southern town of generis in his short life, Musa
has survived more and now this earthquake, but with so little
help on the way, it's hard to know what future if any, he has.
So not to be ghoulish about it. But we do have to look now at
you know, geopolitically, what does this what does this mean?
So the pipelines I think are destroyed the which had Russian
gas oil, not gas Erawan someone needs to come in and start
helping rebuilding Erawan we'll probably have to start making
some concessions. The lira is already overinflated, and it's,
you know, pretty much worthless from where, you know, 90% down
from its value a couple of years back. He's He's holding back the
entrant entrance of Finland and Sweden into the into NATO. So
he, I mean, it's it's just a bad coincidence. This is happening
right now when he had a very strong position. And now he has
almost no position unless he wants to come across as a
horrible person. And a Diana Saso, aka who was a Turkish
senator, or is a turkey a US senator.
They still say Turkish the Turkish. She claimed
in her speech which I have seen in the translation sounded
right. She says this earthquake was directed so just want to put
that out there she may be she may be a nutjob. Oh, wait a
minute. Breaking breaking breaking breaking. We got a
breaking report here. From the keeper apparently another object
has been spotted over Lake Huron. It has been shut down
according to Twitter so another object while we're live fourth
balloons, I mean it's right over Chicago. Well, we're under
Lake Michigan Lake Huron is really in Connect Canadia okay,
under attack. This is Mars Attacks. This is rolling
with the worst ever.
I love that movie. Favorite movie. What wasn't a song yet to
play was What song was it? They played that made their heads
explode? I forgot. Yeah. Oh man. Well with that I'd like to thank
you for your courage say in the morning to you the man who put
the sea in the CGTN China global television network news ladies
and gentlemen say hello to my friend on the other end Mr. John
in the morning, you Mr. Adam curry. Also in the morning all
ships at sea boots on the ground and subs in the air subs in the
water. All the names and
the balloons in the air and in the morning to the trolls and
the troll room who have been hanging out there to troll
room.io Now we've added some instructions if you need more
information on how to register for the troll room right there
troll room.io is where you can find out learn everything you
need to and also listen to the show live and jump right into

and communicate right away and all kinds of fun new stuff and
let's see how many Well well well 2268 I'd say that's pretty
That's a reasonable number that's pretty average. It was
about the same I think it was 23 last Sunday but the down I
thought it'd be a lot less because I thought maybe some of
these trolls but I guess not would be watching pre Super Bowl
stuff which is going to
me know that. Well. They should they could be and we may have
had more at the beginning of the show. But once we gave our tips
are who's going to win
Okay, predictions. They're out there. They're calm. They're
bookies. They got other things for
Colin, do you think that anyone in the troll room those guys
I wouldn't put it past them. They are trolls. Some of them
may be bookies. No, so
that's always possible.
Big thanks to correct to record who brought us the artwork for
episode 1528. We titled that one habitat, which was thanks to Amy
Goodmans a pronunciation of habitat. All caps is people
didn't say much about the title but they love the artwork. Which
was Fred cruise. Yeah. It was a TED for Ted Flintstone. It was
Fred Flintstone. Only now Fred cruise clearly in in bedrock if
you haven't seen it, it's such a great piece. And we looked at a
number a number of pieces that were available to us and you can
check that out for yourself at no agenda art generator.com Go
look at what the artists are putting in there. They're doing
that in real time while they're listening to us. And, and we
choose from it right after the show right after we're done. We
try not to make it the same as the title of the show, but we do
choose the art first. And let's see what we had we had another
one you'd like right off the bat. Was Microsoft barf by
Thomson Neal, which was a nice piece no agenda with the with
the squares, which represented Microsoft, although it was
Google. But the second we probably said that wrong. But
then having Clippy there was pretty obscure. And also the the
text was so small that it had you know, that just doesn't work
on these. This is the bottom of the first page right now. Bottom
Right. All the way at the bottom.
I'm going I'm going
Are you though? Yeah, I did like that piece told you. It did have
and Clippy is the originator of this whole thing. That's just
how far it's gonna get. By the way, Clippy was an annoying
Clippy. Well, Microsoft Bob was the was before Clippy wasn't he?
I think Clippy I think they came in. This was the moment that
they thought this was a good idea. They also did Little Dog
remember the little a dog and said you'd have a dog?
Oh, yeah, I do remember the little dog. What was it the
and ask your questions. You sure you want to do it that way?
Hey, hey, don't forget about me. Zippy. Yeah, zippy. We know.
So Clippy was annoying and the dog was annoying and Microsoft
Bob, which I was very I liked Microsoft Bob as a children's
our operating system to get kids involved in computers because my
son at the time Yeah, JC was, was killed Jr. I think he was
like seven at a time or when this thing when the maestro Bob
came out, I'd have to open up the bogey pace and get the exact
dates. But he was jacked up about it. He was using his
machine all the time. He developed a bunch of software
that worked within the Microsoft Bob environment, but they kept
trying to sell it to adults
was there then it was around the same time we had the Microsoft
comic chat. I think that came later. Okay, that came well
then. But they've
had this idea they they think adults or adults, or adults,
adults, but Microsoft, Bob was, was a cool product when I mean
when JC showed it to me and he showed me all the intricacies of
it. And as a kid, it was like wow, yeah, that's pretty cool.
And I was a big fan of Microsoft but not for not to replace
windows. I'm mean, what are they thinking? And they wouldn't they
would never promote it to kids as a kid operating system is
just wouldn't deal with it. Well, at
least that kind of work. I mean, Cortana which I never understood
as a brand name,
which is which, of course after a small Toyota
Cortana is the first thing you need to disable on your windows
because it sucks up resources to versus
getting rid of it. Yeah.
More artwork we looked at was let's see we had explosive new
details bombshell bombshell was still a lot of balloon stuff. I
kind of liked Taunton needles hanging up the Adidas with the
two Adidas sneakers hanging off the g of agenda which I liked it
because it was clean but it really nothing paled in
comparison to or everything paled in comparison to to Fred
crews I mean and that was my Miss misstating his name and it
just and that is his name now by the way is Fred crews from Fred
forevermore just like it's Janet Yeltsin the Yeltsin this is this
is what we do on the show. Yeltsin so yeah, I mean, it was
just pretty clear. What else was there? And we had I like,
Let's go Brandon, you can't to kneel to but that was never
gonna get picked. No,
you have. Do you have a buzzer on your microphone today? By the
way? No. Shouldn't be let me hear something Oh, my God, I can
hear sounds like something in the background. No. So the
horse, the horse, the horse. Horse is not going to make
No, it's not going to be comic strip bloggers, horrors were
Yeah, he's while he's in Poland. That's where all the good whores
are hookers in Kenya, they're
all in Ukraine.
They really knocked me out. Thank you very much to all of
our artists for participating. We already we see that you
already have put up a lot of things in anticipation of what
we will like or what topics we will be discussing, or topics we
have discussed this is you can watch this in real time. No
agenda, art generator.com. or, indeed, we publish a lot of
these pieces of art in chapters if you get one of those modern
podcast apps, and why aren't you already using one. And so you
can see all of this. It's a lot. It's beautiful work. And we're
so so happy that we have our artists to do this because it
truly is value for value. They like the value that we give them
through doing the program itself. And they return that as
best they can. And even if we don't use it, it's value to us
just just for doing it. And we appreciate that. No agenda art
generator.com. Now, you can also check us out at our our social
network, which is a mastodon instance, no agenda social.com.
A couple things I want to mention about it today. We have
limited number of spots. So we try to keep it around 10,000 The
number of people that are in there, we're blocked by hundreds
if not close to 1000 Mastodon instances who just hate our free
speech policy, freeze peach, by the way. And we have a few
policies ourselves. I'd like to mention one specifically. If you
have something to say posted publicly, this is not intended
to be a DM network. And I get this a lot in people and I have
to have to look at every posting now to make sure it's not a DM
if you want this is for public discourse for Congress. sation
and then there's this other thing. There's a there's a a
style of question that I'm that I'm very irked about. You may
have seen this, and it goes like this. Why haven't you spoken at
all about Julian Assange? I find that interesting.
It's actually the second part of it that makes it fun. Yes, yes.
Yeah, I find Hmm.
Now, you haven't spoken about that, why? And I wanted to
remind everybody of our mission statement, we deconstruct media,
if the media is not talking about it, and we search pretty
far and wide to find media that talks about topics. It's hard
for us to deconstruct the media. But yet people then make this
and it irks me, and I know, I shouldn't get that. And
we're not here to get Julian out. I mean, that should have
been just to actually get into the politics of it. Yeah. That
should have been done by Trump. Yeah.
But you know, it's like you you've never talked about it
ever. So no, we bring we mentioned it all the time. In
fact, you know, we've met Julian, and you'll say, you'll
say yeah, but meanwhile, Julian Assange just rotting away.
You'll say that many times.
I mentioned him and Martha Stewart, in
the same breath, which is, which by itself is a problem. Anyway,
we deconstruct media, we do the best we can we try to help you
navigate your way through this amygdala altering world of
bullcrap, also known as news, which is not and they're all
a&r, everyone, they're all they're all doing it. They're
all worldwide. Yeah. All right. All right, let's thank our
executive and Associate Executive Producers first and
foremost, who knows, we'll get we'll get the title. It's a
forever title for that for supporting us at 200 or $300
Subsequently, and we'll go take it all the way through our other
producers up until $50. Because it's you know, January was light
and we're still in the late days of of January now being February
and I don't know I mean, maybe this is just the new normal. We
believe we're still providing good value. We hope you feel
that way as well. So please consider supporting the show so
that we can continue to do it as we have done for 15 years
without creepy corporate money and advertisers and anything of
the like. Then we think right off the bat sir sorted out from
Houston Texas who does come in with a mega boob donation

which was that our president should ingest a satchel of
Richard's Yes. Also a couple of shows ago I was driving and not
in the troll room but I was always a troll. But I was
screaming at the radio that you had the wrong Tim Tebow for
jingles? Okay. I think we did the wrong Tim t we did and we
did we had been reminded enough
