This is your award winning give on nation media assassination
0:09
episode 1529. This is no agenda, opening Project Blue Beam and
0:15
broadcasting live from the heart of the Texas hill country here
0:18
in FEMA Region number six in the morning, everybody. I'm Adam
0:21
curry,
0:22
and from Northern Silicon Valley where we're opening project
0:26
bullcrap. I'm John C. Dvorak.
0:33
It's the same book, it's just a different cover. There's no
0:36
difference between the two is
0:38
actually the playbook for the Super Bowl.
0:40
Bowl crap. Let's do that right away. Before we do anything,
0:45
let's let's just do our prediction for the Super Bowl.
0:47
We do it every single year. You do it based on sports analysis.
0:51
I do a based on God geographical geopolitical, geopolitical
0:58
feelings. What do you say?
1:03
Well on sports analysis, everybody's predicting the
1:06
Eagles. But I'm going to because they've never been in this team,
1:13
this team. I mean, the Eagles have been in Super Bowls, but
1:15
this team is, is rank amateurs. And one of them's the
1:19
quarterback in particular, the guy think they're gonna be
1:21
nervous enough, they're gonna end up losing the game and I'm
1:23
gonna give it to the Kansas City team.
1:26
Wow. Okay, well, you know, I was already all in on the, the City
1:32
of Brotherly Love. So it's got to be the Eagles and I'm gonna
1:35
give you a score to give you a score.
1:38
Is it going to be the same score that was in the newsletter?
1:41
No, I don't think so. My score is eagles 38 Chief 17 Why would
1:48
you laugh at that?
1:50
It's so silly. Okay, all righty then giving a score. You don't
1:55
even like football.
1:56
I love football. I love the Super Bowl. It's gonna be great.
1:59
It's gonna be a great Super Bowl.
2:01
It goes on right after the show and I wonder how many people are
2:04
listening to all the bowl crap that's going on before the game?
2:08
Yeah, you know? And then it's showing pictures and I bet
2:13
they're free stuff you can do at the Super Bowl when you were
2:16
there.
2:17
So I think Fox has the rights to this year Super Bowl if I'm not
2:20
mistaken
2:21
Fox Yes. Which means it's going to be broadcast in 4k
2:24
and Oh really? Yep. I didn't know that ABC or whatever they
2:29
haven't they don't broadcast it in 4k.
2:31
Nobody broadcasting 4k Except that I know I think NBC does a
2:36
few broadcasts and 4k and a fox does a lot of broadcasts and 4k,
2:40
but people like to condemn it because it's faux que
2:44
focus. Oh, it's not real cage focus.
2:47
Well, what they do is they broadcast and high definition
2:52
and then they up convert as den den broyage Send it out in 4k,
2:56
but it's not true 4k.
3:00
Lame. Is that lame? It
3:02
looks good. But the thing that is different is that it comes
3:05
over in HDR, and that really brightens up the picture and
3:08
helps a lot. Now, if you have a set that can do it. The
3:11
tradition
3:12
is the network that is broadcasting the Superbowl game
3:15
also has a sit down interview with the President. Is this
3:18
happening? It's just happening this year.
3:21
But Bush, Bush Bush a little bit behind the time. Yeah, just a
3:26
bit. Biden says no,
3:29
that's, that's a lame name. Now there's a lot going on. I
3:33
understand. Yeah. Before we get to Operation Blue Blue bean bull
3:38
crap. Did you see the note from Sir Daniels? No, came in late,
3:44
sir Daniels. This is a night of the no agenda roundtable. He
3:48
recently took a position at Project Veritas and he has an
3:51
update based upon our broadcast from Thursday. And he says he
3:56
was able to finish the last episode. And he calls bullcrap
4:00
on everything we said. I want to read it we say well, remember
4:05
that we found out this whole frog is going on that they did
4:08
they kick out James O'Keefe. He's on a week leave. Turns out
4:12
there's a 501 C three and a 501 C four and I personally
4:16
questioned you know what was going on? Was this some did
4:19
Pfizer take issue with one of their one of their Why do I
4:23
get mentioned in this condemnation? Then? Go on?
4:27
Okay, Kara. Don't do that. You can say anything you want but
4:31
don't go
4:32
on. Don't do that. Is it is Cara? Yes, Carrie.
4:38
i He He sent it to me. So you were copied on it but you didn't
4:43
get condemned in this?
4:44
I don't I don't I get doing work in the morning. I'm looking at
4:49
emails like it's too late. You should have sent me a letter
4:51
sir Daniels from Veritas boots on the ground. He says I promise
4:54
you your assessment on the 501 C three versus 501 C four is very
4:58
much wrong. We don't lobby at all. Okay, so strike. Okay,
5:03
wait, stop. He's going to explain it. You'd like to know
5:07
why? Well, I first
5:09
the question that comes immediately to mind is that why
5:11
do you have that designator, which is specifically for
5:14
lobbying operations? Here
5:16
it is. We out of abundance of caution, always put out stories
5:20
that involve elections or candidates under our 501 C four
5:25
entity. Lawyers have suggested this setup because when we show
5:29
a political candidate in a negative light, it can be
5:32
interpreted as an endorsement for the opposition. We do not.
5:37
Okay, I stand corrected on that. We do not endorse or advocate
5:40
for anything, we just report on what people say in private that
5:43
contradicts what they say in public. This, we also honeypot
5:48
gay guys with no mention of that this setup was deemed to protect
5:53
our 501 C three status makes total sense. In principle, we
5:56
don't think we really even need to see for it all but but use it
6:00
out of an abundance of caution. As we state on our website. I'm
6:03
sorry, I did not read that. By the ways as I am the Executive
6:07
Director for both entities. And we're talking to the top here,
6:10
John, we're no slouch.
6:13
No, I think this Yeah, no, no,
6:15
no. The board has not capital n ot ousted James, everyone wants
6:22
him at Project Veritas. And Pfizer is not putting any
6:26
pressure on us. Well, that's three strikes. I can't really
6:29
say much more than this, than that, at this point as the
6:32
situation is fluid, but more detailed to come as I'm able to
6:35
share service track. Okay,
6:38
well, this will that's the official
6:40
word. I'd say. So
6:42
So you know, I'll explain anything, but it's okay.
6:45
You know what, it's more official word and I've heard any
6:48
podcasts or any Twitter person have in which we just throw it
6:53
away. And we just throw it away at the beginning of the show.
6:56
Throw away it's just a way for us to toss away. All right. Wow,
7:03
this was an exciting time to be a podcast or breaking news.
7:06
Breaking
7:06
News Tonight a US fighter jet shoots down yet another high
7:10
altitude flying object this time over Canada amid the growing
7:14
mystery of what was shot down over Alaska on Friday. The US
7:18
military searching for remnants of what it took down but they're
7:21
facing nasty weather off Alaska
7:23
and new questions today. What was it and who sent it.
7:27
Breaking news breaking news Canadian
7:31
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announcing a US fighter jet took
7:35
out an unidentified object over the Yukon scrambling both
7:39
Canadian and US aircraft after coordinating with President
7:42
Biden Saturday afternoon, just one day after another
7:46
unidentified object was shot down over Alaskan waters with
7:50
recovery efforts underway in the Arctic and more questions and
7:54
answers about who owned it, why it was there and what
7:57
capabilities it may have had. We don't have
8:00
any information that would confirm a stated purpose for
8:03
this object
8:03
when President Biden ordered us fighter jets to take it out with
8:07
a missile just hours after learning about it.
8:14
Oh man it's so good. It's so good. I'm sure you have a couple
8:18
of clips you want to share I have all clips actually. We we
8:22
need to help people with this one.
8:23
But I think that the real issue is the lies by omission. Okay,
8:31
which I have documented quite excellent let's do it quite
8:35
nicely including somebody who finally tells us what to watch
8:38
all right,
8:38
I got I got now just so you know, I have Aviation Week which
8:43
has some interesting this you know, editors of Aviation Week
8:47
from their podcast interesting observations about the Chinese
8:50
balloon the first the OG balloon. I also have the
8:54
Pentagon media briefing about a boot the the first UFO so that
9:02
and then of course I have the you know, the typical mainstream
9:05
bullcrap, so just let your
9:07
mainstream bullcrap but then I go to go to the to the full
9:12
press conference of the shine of the Canadian yes defense
9:18
minister minister and she won't say what it is and then they
9:22
make a mistake Okay. And tell us what it is but let's I I'm still
9:27
mystified by why they're trying to bull crap us with these with
9:31
the specifically say unidentified flying objects a
9:34
couple of times the Canadian said that everybody says it i By
9:38
the way, I have you had your clips you just played once. One
9:41
of the comments was UFO.
9:45
I have the answer for later but let's get through all the clips
9:48
first.
9:50
Okay, well, let's go with just go to the MBU. What did ABC us
9:53
do? NBC, NBC is overview.
9:57
Tonight, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Announcing a US
10:01
fighter jet took out an unidentified object over the
10:04
Yukon scrambling both Canadian and US aircraft after
10:08
coordinating with President Biden Saturday afternoon, just
10:12
one day after another unidentified object was shot
10:15
down over Alaskan waters.
10:17
By the way, this is the same report at NBC. I think this is
10:21
the same report
10:22
with recovery efforts underway in the Arctic and more questions
10:26
and answers about who owned it, why it was there and what
10:29
capabilities
10:31
this is same exact is the same clip except
10:34
you have more of it if that was the same beginning of my clips,
10:37
so I'd say we bought
10:38
you ABC. No, it was the NBC then let's go on. Let's go to let's
10:43
get the hell with it. Let's get it so that this is an
10:46
international let's go to Al Jazeera. UFO Canada AJ report
10:52
another unidentified object has been shot down over North
10:55
American airspace this time over northern Canada. Canadian and
10:59
American forces were tracking these cylindrical object before
11:02
a US F 22. Aircraft shot it down over the Yukon becomes a day
11:06
after flying object was shot down over Alaska in the US. And
11:10
a week after a Chinese balloon was downed off the coast of
11:13
North Carolina.
11:15
Okay, so this is interesting because they have is an Object
11:17
and Object and a balloon. Yes, so correct. So they defensively
11:22
he goes on and on and on. She gives us this explanation
11:26
without saying much. And then somebody comes up with a very
11:29
interesting question for her. And this is the UFO candidate
11:34
defense lady hem and haw,
11:36
this is Libra ministers David. Lee, go ahead. Okay. Thank you.
11:41
Thanks, David. I wanted to ask this, maybe a silly question.
11:45
But I think it's I didn't think I'd ever asked this question. Is
11:48
there any indication that this object is not terrestrial is not
11:54
from this world? There is it's really to say anything that from
11:58
your right, I have not had that question, Lee. So thank you for,
12:02
for asking it. There. From all indications, this object is
12:10
potentially similar to the one that was shot down off the coast
12:16
of North Carolina, though smaller in size and cylindrical
12:21
in nature. That is the information that we are working
12:25
with right now. But with further analysis, we will know more and
12:30
be able to provide you with more details. So.
12:34
So just to confirm, so it sounds like it potentially was another
12:38
balloon is that is that what we're being led to believe?
12:42
I will refer to that the item as an object at this time. I am a
12:48
person that depends on facts, and will not provide opinions
12:55
until I can ground them in some sort of facts. So I'm going to
12:58
wait for the reports that I will be getting relating to the
13:04
analysis of the debris.
13:07
Hmm, well, that that's not exactly on message. It's
13:11
supposed to be you know, a little more a little more vague.
13:15
It's just kind of supposed to elude
13:17
Well, this guy this question kind of screwed her over. So So
13:20
meanwhile, she brings on this Canadian Air Force General,
13:25
who's whose last name, I believe is air, which is a fascinating
13:30
name for Air Force guy. And he seems to want to have nothing to
13:35
do with any of whatever the charade is. And I have a
13:39
rationale for why this is going on. And he just kind of blows
13:42
the whole thing up as it were. And this is the UFO candidate
13:47
general, spoiling everything
13:49
that's successful downing of this object all Jahad concern
13:54
about for more specifics, I will ask the Chief of Defence Staff,
13:58
General Wayne air who's with me this evening, if he would like
14:01
to add anything?
14:03
Is it name general wing air?
14:05
That was Wayne? Oh, that would
14:07
have been even better.
14:09
General Wayne air was with me this evening. If he would like
14:12
to add anything. General air?
14:15
No, thanks, Minister. And, David, to go to the specifics of
14:18
your question. There was an aim 9x missile from the F 22. Now
14:23
it's important to note that the instructions that were given to
14:25
the the team was whoever had the first best shot to take out the
14:31
balloon that had to go ahead. It's also important to note that
14:37
aircraft are under the direction of Canadian NORAD region. So a
14:41
Canadian general in Winnipeg was was overseeing this, this
14:47
operation, albeit in a NORAD context.
14:51
Just that was funny, by the way, just just to kind of give you a
14:54
little more Canadian flavor. I have about 37 seconds of
14:59
presence. Didn't Trudeau announcing his his order to
15:02
shoot down yet yet?
15:05
I want you to play it but first I have to say after that clip
15:08
the woman came back on with the look of someone so irked she
15:15
came back on and it looked on her look on her face was low we
15:19
were I went through all this trouble of humiliating myself
15:23
did not say balloon did not say balloon and then you come on and
15:27
say balloon she was steaming, she was ear to smoke was coming
15:32
out of her ears.
15:33
That's a good observation and a good point. So that shows that
15:37
that all intent here is to keep it mysterious and very UFO.
15:44
Like, for whatever reason.
15:47
I have a potential reason.
15:49
We all have thoughts. But let's first listen to just President
15:53
Justin Trudeau, who does not look like Trudeau by the way. He
15:57
looks 15 or 20 years younger than I've seen him in a long
16:01
time. Botox I was hair was definitely a bit longer than
16:07
I've seen it recently. Or maybe that's just
16:11
my American body double.
16:13
I'm thinking something like it was it did not seem like him. It
16:17
seemed like a much younger version.
16:19
Yesterday NORAD confirmed that an unidentified object entered a
16:26
lawfully Canadian airspace.
16:27
Okay, so now we're definitely not saying maybe a balloon here.
16:31
It represented a reasonable threat to civilian aircraft. So
16:36
I gave the order to take it down. Yeah, you ordered nothing
16:40
Justin. Canadian and American fighter jets were scrambled,
16:44
Rambo and an American F 22. Successfully shot down the
16:48
object. recovery teams are on the ground.
16:54
Did you start it again. But now as you're brought in, this is
16:58
information that is some screwy about this guy. He sounds winded
17:03
Yes.
17:03
It doesn't sound the same. He doesn't look this age. No, he
17:06
doesn't quite sound the same. He's He's got it. Normally. He's
17:10
kind of forceful and it kind of a route and he's got this kind
17:13
of relaxed bullcrap tone. Yeah. That is hard to describe, but
17:19
didn't sound like this. He's sounds like he just got through
17:24
a marathon.
17:25
Strangely enough his teeth. I mean, I'm orally oriented these
17:29
days, because my own issues, his teeth did not even look the
17:32
same. So something about this clone is off.
17:35
recovery teams are on the ground, looking to find and
17:41
analyze the object. This afternoon, I also spoke with
17:46
President Biden and confirmed together that we will continue
17:51
to do everything necessary to protect the sovereignty of our
17:55
heirs of our shared North American airspace.
17:57
Now notice he says of our our shared North American airspace.
18:01
So this is partly a part of a an overall just, you know, subtle
18:06
subtleness of North America. It's really United States,
18:10
Canada and Mexico,
18:11
but also to do everything necessary to keep our citizens
18:15
safe.
18:16
North American Union, you know, I don't know, it just it felt
18:19
off. I just want to mention, well, it
18:22
doesn't sound right now that you mentioned it. Yeah. I didn't see
18:26
this. Boy, I probably did it because they had it in bits and
18:29
pieces all over the place. And this whole thing about keeping
18:33
the balloon. Well Can balloon so is the other one. Can
18:36
we go to the Pentagon briefing?
18:39
Yeah, I want to hear what I had some of that news, NBC clips.
18:42
What is Kirby right?
18:44
No, no, no, no, this is the Pentagon? This is the Okay.
18:48
Okay, different guy. So, and it's good audio. And it's it's
18:52
it's a very different kind of briefing at the Pentagon. And
18:56
the reporters were asking pretty good question. This is from
18:58
Friday. So this is after the first aren't identified balloon,
19:01
I mean,
19:01
object when the pilot when the pilots approached it, and they
19:06
determined, I understand that it was not manned. How did they
19:10
determine that? And at that point, wouldn't it be possible
19:13
to at least describe what they were looking at? Did it resemble
19:16
a balloon or an aeroplane or what?
19:18
Again, we'll know more and have more information. Once we've
19:22
recovered this, I will give credit to our pilots, that
19:27
they're very capable in terms of looking at an object, assessing
19:32
whether or not this had the potential to be manned at that
19:34
altitude, something that's small, very, very unlikely that
19:38
it was manned. And so again, no indication that it was manned,
19:43
presented presented a potential reasonable threat to civilian
19:47
air traffic, and we took it down.
19:49
What speed was it traveling it by the way,
19:51
I don't have that information.
19:53
Okay, so it was floating. Let's make sure it's not a balloon.
19:58
I just had a couple clarifying questions. You You said that,
20:01
that the pilots were able to see it, that it wasn't the same
20:04
shape or size as the balloon, can you say definitively it was
20:07
not a balloon?
20:09
I don't at this point, considering the fact
20:13
that little different than the Canadian counterpart, we're
20:16
still assessing
20:17
the object. I don't want to get into characterizing it. So just
20:24
leave it at that. Okay, you
20:25
mentioned you know, how fast was traveling? Can you say it was
20:27
traveling faster or slower than the balloon?
20:31
I don't have that information in front of me. So I don't want to
20:34
make it up.
20:34
He doesn't have it in front of him. But he knows.
20:37
Try a couple more. Um, did anyone?
20:39
I'd love to try a couple more. I love this.
20:41
Yeah, let's get back to his balloon.
20:45
Um, did anyone tried to within the administration contact their
20:49
Chinese counterparts before the decision was made to shoot it
20:52
down?
20:54
In terms of when you say the administration, if you're
20:57
referring to the White House, I'd have to refer you to them.
21:00
The Department of Defense, to my knowledge did not again, we
21:04
don't know the point of origin of this object.
21:10
And was there any effort to jam or somehow disable this object
21:13
before such that suppose less of a,
21:16
so I don't want to get into specific tactics or techniques
21:19
that we may or may not use when observing these types of things
21:22
again, NORAD sent up aircraft to observe to see what it was, and
21:30
then the ultimate decision was made based on the reasonable
21:32
threat to civilian civilian air traffic to take that
21:35
I just want to point out that is contrary to what the Trudeau
21:40
clones said. He said, I gave the order they scrambled the Jets
21:44
now they were already in the air. So they were assessing what
21:48
it was, so he didn't get any order to shoot down. They didn't
21:51
scramble anything. That's all hyperbole. So next question,
21:55
there's still kind of on the balloons here. The reporters are
21:58
having a hard time at the Pentagon,
22:00
like these reporters better than the ones that do the White
22:02
House. Much better.
22:04
And the answers are more succinct and less, less filling.
22:07
When I asked you about the overall program, you said,
22:10
You've been you've been learning a lot about this balloon program
22:12
over the last couple years. Yet the annual China report doesn't
22:16
have a peep about balloons in there. You spend a lot of money
22:19
and effort but no balloons.
22:23
So here's here's a reporter who has read something before he's
22:26
asking a question go figure
22:28
I won and China's balance of power against them. satellites
22:32
and jets, but no balloons, why not?
22:34
So So Tony, what I would say on the
22:37
notice the notice that so Tony, Tony, Tony, I know your name. So
22:41
Tony, what I would say is You better
22:42
watch out Mr. On the unclassified China power report.
22:46
Oh, that was unclassified. Right? There's going to be
22:48
certain elements, intelligence aspects in the unclassified
22:52
version that may not be included in that particular report.
22:56
Oh, great. Um, because balloons are so classified.
22:59
Oh, yeah. Blues are so secretive. Yeah.
23:02
Oh, my God, blue horns, we can talk. Tony, let me tell you
23:06
that, Tony, you know, that was the unclassified version. But,
23:10
you know, you never know we had in the classified version
23:13
important
23:14
in terms of what's in that report, and what's not in that
23:17
report. Again, we can go back and look at that. But I can tell
23:21
you, I can assure you that there are a lot of activities that we
23:24
continue to monitor to include this balloon program. And we've
23:28
learned a lot over the last couple of years that the
23:29
classified version has the ones in there, I'd have to go back
23:33
and look, I do not know the answer to that.
23:37
He just gave the answer though. I have to go back and look at
23:40
that. Okay, will you circle back, we'll circle back. So we
23:43
know that this thing was cylindrical in shape. They
23:45
classified it as about the size of a car, you know, which makes
23:49
you you visualize? Know, Like, I don't know, what should we say
23:54
like a bronco. You visualize a Bronco hanging from something
23:58
that's whatever this but that it was cylindrical. We heard that
24:01
and
24:01
they never said it was hanging from anything. They just said it
24:04
was good boy, good point. Good point. It was just a cylinder
24:07
little object. So let's see what the result was up there by
24:10
itself.
24:11
Do you an Admiral Kirby know the shape of this new object? And if
24:16
so, what is sort of the reason for why you can't share it shape
24:20
before it was shot down?
24:21
Yeah, thank you. So in terms of the shape, I don't know. I have
24:24
not seen any imagery of it. I'm just telling you the verbal
24:28
characteristics as it was this describe to me
24:31
it was probably a police a penis balloon. Just floating around up
24:37
there. But whatever you do, call it an object
24:39
when the when NORAD sent the initial aircraft up to see was
24:44
there any sort of hailing or any type of warning given typically
24:48
when an aircraft makes an incursion into protected
24:51
airspace? There's a whole lot of procedures that have to be
24:54
followed before it would escalate to something like this.
24:57
Okay, well, this was an object, right? So it wasn't an aircraft.
25:00
per se,
25:00
Oh, okay. Hay is an object. Okay. So that was the Pentagon
25:06
briefing. I love how CNN Jim Acosta, who has his own show,
25:11
what he's what he launched into the ether was so much better
25:15
than this.
25:16
Interesting. This is kind of unusual that these pilots saw
25:20
different things. And that is sort of, I guess, adding to the
25:23
mystery of all this.
25:24
Yeah, not even the pilots apparently, were really able to
25:26
identify what they saw. And just to take you back for a sec. On
25:29
Thursday, the US defense officials sent F 35 fighter jets
25:34
up to try to figure out what this object was flying around
25:36
near Alaska. Those pilots we have learned have given very
25:40
conflicting accounts of what they actually experience was
25:42
some pilot saying that the object interfered with the plane
25:45
sensors, other pilots saying that they didn't really
25:48
experience that other pilots saying that when they looked at
25:51
the object, they could identify no identifiable, identifiable
25:54
propulsion system and they did not know how it was actually air
25:58
cruising at that altitude of about 40,000 feet. So this is
26:02
all added to the Pentagon's weariness of describing in more
26:05
detail what this object actually is until they can get more
26:09
information through the debris that they are recovering right
26:12
now.
26:13
Yeah, no propulsion. It's a balloon. Okay. It's a penis
26:17
shaped balloon. I don't like
26:19
was a penis shaped cylindrical yet? This cylindrical object was
26:23
hanging from the balloon?
26:26
No, there's no mention of anything hanging from anything.
26:28
You just said that yourself.
26:30
Know that? No, the point is, is that there was something there
26:33
was a balloon with something hanging from it. And that's what
26:36
they're trying to describe. They shot the balloon, nothing comes
26:38
down and they're gonna go pick it up. That's what happened. It
26:41
was another Chinese balloon. They don't want to prom with the
26:46
Chinese. They just want for some reason the public is not allowed
26:50
to think any more about the Chinese balloon because the
26:52
Chinese are gonna have a big meeting with Yellen. And they
26:55
don't want anyone to interrupt it. This is bankers. They're
26:58
gonna get together and they're gonna divvy up the world and
27:01
they don't need any aggravation with some damn Chinese balloons
27:04
anymore. The Chinese balloon thing is off the table. Don't
27:08
talk about it. Make it sound like a flying saucer do
27:11
anything.
27:12
And this is your this is your conclusion. It's what it's
27:16
about. Yeah. Yellen. Is that our clip? Here Yellen.
27:20
Yeah, here's Yellen. She said this is not covered too much.
27:22
But Yellen. The last time there was a Chinese balloon they had
27:25
to interrupt a meeting. And it was like maybe it was important.
27:28
Maybe it wasn't this meeting is important.
27:31
China's as their welcomes US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen
27:35
is willingness for a visit. A spokesperson for the commerce
27:38
ministry says it's important that the two countries maintain
27:42
communication, noting that Chinese Vice Premier Li or her
27:45
held constructive talks with Yellen at the Davos Forum in
27:49
Switzerland last month. She added that China opposes the US
27:53
to impose unreasonable sanctions on Chinese companies in
27:56
violation of Market Economy and International trade rules. Well,
28:01
that's
28:01
interesting. So we both have a conclusion of what this is about
28:05
that is ultimately based on finance. Is what you're saying
28:10
this is something about the finance system. Yeah, it's
28:14
finance. All right. Well, well, I love that we both were coming
28:17
at it from different angles. I have historical receipts to say
28:22
that I believe you may be right. The one of the most notorious
28:28
economists in finance in the United States is of course, Paul
28:32
Krugman. Paul Krugman, a favorite. In fact, the favorite
28:37
economist of the former New York banker, he always loves crazy,
28:41
Krugman is really a good he's a good economist. And I think we
28:45
think he's a douche. And he's I think he's a spook too well, and
28:49
he has everything wrong. He's wrong most of the time. Yeah.
28:52
However, 10 years ago, as we were nearing the end of the
29:01
Great Recession, he had a theory on how to fix everything, which
29:07
of course, kind of did happen, but not really in the way. I
29:12
mean, it's shoved everything under the rug. And now 10 years
29:15
later, we know that why do we have all these horrible finance
29:18
things happening is because they never cleaned up what they did
29:21
in the 2008 2009 1011 12. And he took this theory, not yet
29:27
everywhere, he used this, it's just got a minute of it. He used
29:31
this theory on multiple shows PBS. Even while Bill Maher would
29:38
be kind of a funny show, but he meant it and this is him on
29:41
Fareed Zakaria's show, the anti constitutionalist douche who was
29:45
also on CNN, but a serious program so you don't you don't
29:49
make jokes on Zakaria show. And this is what Paul Krugman idea
29:54
was to save the finance system. The first time it was in trouble
29:57
again, maybe Boston's Big Dig was listed. was fine after all,
30:01
think about World War Two, right? That was not that was
30:03
actually negative for social product spending. And yet it
30:06
brought us out. I mean, partly because you want to put these
30:08
things together, if we say, Look, we could use some
30:10
inflation. Ken and I are both saying that which is of course
30:13
anathema to a lot of people and in Washington, but it's in fact,
30:17
what the basic logic says, it's very hard to get inflation in a
30:20
depressed economy. But if you had a program of government
30:23
spending, plus an expansionary policy by the Fed, you could get
30:26
that so if you think about using all of these things together,
30:29
you could accomplish, you know, a great deal and if we if we
30:32
discovered that, you know, space aliens were planning to attack
30:36
and we needed a massive buildup to counter the space alien
30:40
threat. And really, inflation and budget deficits took
30:43
secondary place to that this slump would be over in 18
30:48
months. And then if we discovered oops, we made a
30:50
mistake there aren't actually any so we need art and better
30:53
what you're saying. Oh, that's that's a there was a Twilight
30:55
Zone episode like this in which scientists fake the alien threat
30:59
in order to achieve world peace Well, this time we don't need
31:01
it. We need it in order to get some fiscal stimulus.
31:04
I'm all in on that. I mean, you have inflation but maybe he
31:06
wants more I think this is the Krugman playbook.
31:13
Well, this idea about lying about some balloons and then
31:17
trying to bring space aliens into the picture isn't going to
31:20
work a lot. No, it's not going to work on you. It's just what
31:24
bothers me I you know, whether or not there's some screwball
31:27
scheme afoot what bugs me the most is that there because
31:31
anyone who heard the the general from Canada so as the shutdown
31:34
the balloon boom, blew it up blew up the whole light you
31:38
know, the whole scam, but why did they continue with this and
31:41
then a cost this eclipse, which really make this very
31:44
suspicious? What what is the point of the news media going in
31:48
this direction instead of trying to get to the bottom because
31:51
they're told to do this obviously. Well, the people
31:54
obviously the Yes, but the news media that was covering that
31:58
weren't covering the Pentagon. Those clips were great because
32:02
they were trying to they probably knew, I don't think any
32:06
of them heard the generals say it was a balloon because that
32:08
was pretty obscure, but they don't find out about it. It's
32:13
just I don't understand what is the point of of this kind of
32:17
obfuscation because of some couple more balloons floating
32:22
around? How about that it's gonna screw up the meetings are
32:25
we are the public's gonna get all pissed off at the Chinese
32:28
and you can't go meet with Yeltsin or No, it just is
32:32
bothersome to me that the media and since I played the Al
32:36
Jazeera clip, it goes International is all in on this
32:39
and they're just there. It's just a disservice to the public.
32:45
What the mainstream media is disturbing the public.
32:50
Let's listen gambling. Let's listen to
32:52
the BBC. The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
32:55
has said the United States military fighter jet acting on
32:58
his orders has shot down a high altitude airborne objects over
33:03
northwestern Canada. Here's our North America correspondent
33:06
Peter burrows.
33:07
Notice how we get the Brits and they take our guys, it's amazed
33:10
Justin
33:11
Trudeau said he ordered the shooting down of an annoyance a
33:14
Brit identified object that had violated Canadian airspace. In a
33:18
tweet he confirmed that Canadian and US aircraft was scrambled
33:22
and that an F 22 fighter jet successfully fired at the
33:26
object. Mr. Trudeau said he'd spoken with President Biden and
33:30
that Canadian forces would now recover and analyze the wreckage
33:34
and military mission is also continuing on sea ice off the
33:38
Alaskan town of Deadhorse. To recover debris from the other
33:41
unspecified airborne object shot down on Friday. In a statement
33:46
the US Northern Command said that operation was moving slowly
33:50
due to freezing temperatures, snow and limited daylight.
33:54
Officials said they still had no further information to offer
33:57
about the purpose and origin of the object, which was earlier
34:01
said to be about the size of a small car. Peter burrows with
34:04
that report
34:05
out just coming in breaking from Bloomberg. China getting ready
34:09
to take down an unidentified object flying over waters near
34:13
the port city of Queen Dow which is home to a major naval base
34:17
for the People's Liberation Army Chinese news outlet the paper
34:20
reported shows how they're everywhere. This just came out.
34:27
It was interesting is they NBC report I think was in the second
34:31
half of these clips. I didn't have it but Biden comes on and
34:33
says that he ordered he ordered it shot down. I think I have
34:39
that so I think the news media should go after that little
34:41
contradiction. Let's see this. Was he ordered it and you say
34:45
you ordered it. I'm going to love to hear what they have to
34:47
say about that. Here's
34:48
the seat now. I think see did CBS break this because that's
34:51
what we need to know who broke it who was the breaking. It's
34:54
got to be CBS. This is such an Intel operation one way or the
34:59
other. It if they if they really don't want him to know about it,
35:04
they can just get rid of it. I don't know. Let's listen to CB
35:08
here
35:08
in Washington also the extraordinary rebuke in
35:11
Congress. The house today voted unanimously 419 to zero to
35:16
condemn China for its Newly uncovered balloon surveillance
35:20
program. Okay, so it's the surveillance program.
35:23
CBS is David Martin is at the Pentagon tonight with new
35:26
details on the highly sophisticated spying equipment
35:29
that was found on that balloon.
35:32
I just want to point out that unlike balloon one, which I and
35:36
we have some interesting aviation aviator clips listen to
35:41
no one has seen balloon two or balloon three there was no video
35:45
it's just in our mind. It's the size of a car it's cylindrical.
35:49
No one has seen it it got shot down you know there's there's no
35:52
video like the in the water of the first one. It could be a
35:56
total it could be 100% Bullshit. We don't even know if it's true.
36:02
Would you agree with me?
36:05
Well listening to the Canadian general and who seemed like a
36:08
pretty no nonsense guy he said it was shot down specifically by
36:12
a specific missile. Yeah, I think it was true. I think there
36:15
was a balloon I think there was another one in Alaska I don't
36:18
think this was a complete fabrication.
36:22
Okay, let's continue with CBS
36:24
as FBI evidence teams started shipping pieces of the balloons
36:28
wreckage off to the lab US officials said underwater
36:31
pictures clip
36:33
you have to go back now because she says specifically will be
36:37
when she introduced this guy who's always been connected.
36:41
Play the beginning of that first part of that clip again because
36:43
there's something else stopped when it when it gets to it. They
36:46
specifically said that they haven't recovered this the stuff
36:50
that's at the bottom of the ocean yet that I know of. Have
36:52
they? Yeah,
36:53
it's so confusing. I've only seen them pulling pieces of
36:56
balloon into the boat. Yeah, and this is balloon one right? This
37:01
is the one we know is yeah, this one we're talking about talking
37:03
about balloon one by balloon
37:04
here in Washington also the extraordinary rebuke in
37:08
Congress. The house today voted unanimously 419 to zero to
37:13
condemn China for its Newly uncovered balloon surveillance
37:17
program.
37:17
I just want to ask what is the point of Congress stopping their
37:21
busy day to vote on condemning a spy balloon program? Do we
37:26
really need a vote? It was anyone gonna was it was Rand
37:30
Paul gonna vote against it? I mean, I don't understand. Why
37:33
did he need a vote? Of course we're, of course we don't want
37:36
Chai if it's true, we don't want no reason.
37:39
You're absolutely correct. This is bogus. Thank you.
37:41
CBS David Martin is at the Pentagon tonight with new
37:44
details on the highly sophisticated spying equipment
37:48
that was found on that balloon. Okay, right
37:50
there. Yeah, highly sophisticated
37:52
spying you know it's highly if they haven't dug it they're
37:55
still dragging this stuff off the bottom of the
37:57
ocean. David Martin. He CBS Why do you question it citizen.
38:03
As FBI evidence teams started shipping pieces of the balloons.
38:07
They got pieces of it wreckage off to the lab lab US officials
38:11
said to
38:11
the lab. What lab but then
38:15
it's taken it off to the lab. How did he know it's highly
38:17
sophisticated?
38:18
Underwater pictures of the debris show the electronics it
38:21
was carrying survived the fall from 60,000 feet mostly intact.
38:26
I haven't seen this picture they got pictures they have pictures
38:29
I'm not saying
38:30
they already have a good idea of what divers will find because
38:34
before the balloon was shot down you to spy planes flew by taking
38:39
high resolution photos of what officials described as an array
38:43
of antennas for intercepting communications.
38:46
I get that information
38:49
is the Pentagon tree I want to use other words with this is
38:53
probably the Congress that I'm not going to have you guys have
38:57
to help me understand why this baby wasn't taken out long
39:00
before Oh, here we go. Oh, this is this is military industrial
39:06
complex time ladies and gentlemen. I have I'm so angry
39:09
there's words I could use Why don't you guys take it out? His
39:12
No.
39:13
You're missing the real good point. Why wasn't this baby
39:16
taken out? Is that what he said?
39:19
Yeah, ah, well, what kind of work yeah, and what world is
39:24
let's say he was saying
39:25
that I'm not going to you guys have to help me understand why
39:29
this baby wasn't taken out long before
39:32
Wow, that's a good catch. John, what kind of baby Why would you
39:35
use that term? This baby this baby like little fat man. And
39:43
what baby What baby? Yes,
39:45
that's I John tester is the Democratic senator from Montana,
39:49
where the balloon hovered over a field of 150 silos, housing
39:53
intercontinental ballistic missiles, apparently trying to
39:57
listen in on the communications use With the command and control
40:01
of nuclear weapons
40:02
know that I got a problem. Oh, please, you need a balloon to
40:06
apparently listen in on the communications.
40:10
How about word Bronco out in front of
40:13
one of those Viper things get the self I mean come on that
40:17
seems a little incredulous used for the command and control of
40:20
nuclear weapons. Yeah, because that's all you need is you need
40:23
a balloon, you can pick up the command and control of nuclear
40:25
weapons
40:26
I got a problem with with a Chinese balloon flying over my
40:30
state, much less the rest of the country soon after the balloon
40:34
was spotted in the sky.
40:36
What the heck, what does that mean? Much less the rest of the
40:38
country. Or maybe it just means you're missing. I got a problem
40:42
with flying over my state much less. Right?
40:45
It's just a phrase. It's a funny phrase.
40:47
Plus the rest of the countries does soon after the balloon was
40:50
spotted in the sky. But what the heck is that? A US official said
40:54
it stopped hovering over the missile field and proceeded
40:56
across the rest of the country. Apparently abandoning its spy
41:00
mission, but still communicating with controllers back. Wait a
41:04
minute, I
41:05
know that they're building the story for us right here talk
41:08
about a narrative that is unproven. It's just It's just
41:12
ridiculous.
41:13
I love it. I love it.
41:14
According to US officials, China has a fleet of high altitude
41:18
balloons, which military has used as a cheap alternative to
41:22
satellites to fly over some 40 countries around the world? Oh,
41:26
it's because
41:26
satellites are expensive. China can't afford them. This
41:31
is a best price. This is a Chinese version. Oh no Chinese
41:37
cannot afford it. Satellite. We got best price we do balloon
41:44
while the public now. Now let's I want to play these clips from
41:50
aviation is racist. What you Yeah, the way you characterize
41:54
it, but yeah. So Aviation Week has has a podcast with editors
41:59
of the magazine. And these are people you know, balloon pilots
42:03
are also aviators. So this there's a lot of knowledge about
42:06
balloons and how they work. And there were some very interesting
42:11
questions that they raised in, I've got three clips here. So
42:14
first about about the original spy balloon, the there's
42:20
something that we don't know anything about balloons other
42:22
than you love them, and I won't fly in them because they land in
42:26
controlled crash. But here's, here's the here's something that
42:30
neither of us knew
42:30
this balloon was different than all the others that we've seen
42:36
before, in the sense that it still used what appeared to be
42:40
that super pressure, pumpkin shaped envelope, helium envelope
42:45
that we've seen with other types of this kind of ultra long
42:48
endurance balloon. But it had, instead of having this
42:51
translucent fabric in the envelope, it had an opaque
42:56
envelope. And that's that's pretty important because it
42:59
means that they figured out a way to reflect the energy from
43:04
the sun away from the balloon, so that the solar energy didn't
43:09
go into the the helium inside the gas bag, increase the
43:14
temperature of that helium, which increases the pressure,
43:17
which then causes the balloon to explode. You know, that's why
43:20
all the previous balloons we've seen like those have been
43:23
translucent at those altitudes and and for those durations. So
43:28
allow that solar energy to pass through the balloon and minimize
43:33
the amount of heat that gets created within the helium
43:36
structure itself. So for them to be able to figure out how to do
43:40
that and keep the overall weight of that structure that fabric
43:44
structure down to a point where they can still have a useful
43:48
payload and look like that a pretty substantial payload you
43:51
know is is is impressive achievement that people are
43:56
going to try to be figuring out in the especially in the high
43:59
altitude balloon community.
44:01
The first of all, it's fun to know there's a high altitude
44:04
balloon community.
44:05
Wow. Well, that's probably the most important thing is getting
44:09
the debris of the balloon itself. Yeah, with that outer
44:12
fabric was I think it was silk.
44:15
Could be
44:17
Chinese and silk very calm
44:19
the New Silk Road. Yes, it's in the air as well. Well, then
44:22
there was a question about the the shoot down and how you would
44:27
actually do this with the weapons that were used as
44:30
a 200 foot tall balloon, any holes you put in it even with 20
44:33
millimeter rounds from a f 22 cannon. You know, it's just
44:38
going to leak out and it will take several days for the
44:40
balloon to actually descend to the ground. So
44:43
that's part of the answer that we were seeking is well why
44:45
don't you shoot the balloon and cricket because it would take a
44:48
lot even with an F 22 missile or rocket as he said, it would take
44:54
several days for it to deflate and float down to the ground. So
44:57
there's the if they
44:58
shot the balloon with the With the Bullets Over Montana, they
45:03
could have attracted all the way to the ground and picked it up
45:05
intact. Yeah, but they did, because it was two days that did
45:08
at least two days. Yeah.
45:11
So that's one issue. So then you have to go to missiles. But then
45:16
what do you aim at the, you know, that helium balloon itself
45:21
is a void, you know, so even if the missile hits it dead on
45:25
target, it will just pass through it. And there's a
45:28
potential I won't even fuse and explode. So what they did, of
45:33
course, was they aimed, it appears at the superstructure
45:37
truss, below the balloon, where they could get a heat return or
45:42
a heat signature for that imaging infrared speaker on an A
45:46
9x. And that was early enough to do it. But even then, nobody's
45:52
tested in a 9x, at 50,000 feet, from an F 22, or any other
45:57
aircraft, or you just don't have dogfights at that at that
46:00
altitude,
46:01
interesting display of weaponry of using this and showing how
46:05
effective it is, could have also been a sales pitch for all we
46:08
know.
46:09
So well, they use the same missile on that one in Canada,
46:12
you know,
46:13
as the A 9x is ascending from 50,000 feet launchpoint, up to
46:18
the target somewhere between 60 and 65,000 feet, that's the
46:21
that's the most detail we've gotten where the target actually
46:24
was. You know, it may have to maneuver or do some terminal
46:29
maneuvers and the end game now this is not, you know, the
46:32
balloon is not evading and it's not running away. So it's, you
46:35
know, it's still a pretty easy target. But would it have enough
46:40
authority in its control surfaces up there, and that very
46:43
thin air to actually hit that target? Obviously, it did. And,
46:48
you know, and they probably weren't worrying too much about
46:50
it at that point. But I bet that they were probably doing some
46:53
pretty hardcore analysis in that three or four day period between
46:57
when, you know, they started looking at it and got the
47:00
authorization to shoot it down. And when they actually shut it
47:03
down, because I started saying, you know, if they missed that
47:06
shot, you know, just how bad that would have looked in front
47:11
of the entire world, with video cameras clearly showing the
47:16
first shot missing or the second shot missing, and maybe getting
47:19
it on the third one.
47:22
I just thought that was interesting, because
47:24
that's interesting, for a couple of reasons. One, it may have
47:28
they may have decided to shoot it down over Montana. But then
47:31
this public relations issue a pro while we've never been able
47:35
to use that missile for this and that, oh god that they had to
47:39
have all these meetings, right. So as by the time they got
47:42
around to it, it was off the off the coast.
47:48
meetings.
47:50
And then that explains why they missed the shoot downs over
47:54
Canada and the Yukon, or I'm sorry, Alaska and the Yukon.
47:58
Were they right away because they already knew the missile
48:01
worked. Right. Right. Didn't dilly dally. Well, and
48:06
there's that's the last clip here How interesting. NORAD
48:09
also had project Pathfinder, where they went back for other
48:12
reasons. And we've analyzed all the radar data, and use machine
48:17
learning and AI algorithms to refine how they how they can
48:21
tell the difference on secondary and primary and primary radars
48:25
between aircraft and birds and birds, so that they don't have
48:28
some of the mistakes that they've made in, in previous
48:32
years with that, that might have filtered into this as well. But
48:35
once they the characteristics of this, wait, what?
48:39
Yes,
48:40
we've been shooting birds know you've worked with kind of
48:44
mistakes that these some poor Pelican going bike and hit by
48:47
one of these things. Hey, man,
48:48
we're glad we could tweak the algo save the Pelican tweaked
48:51
algo
48:52
in previous years with that, that might have filtered, let's
48:54
go back. And will that was pretty funny. So that they don't
48:57
have some of the mistakes that they've made in in previous
49:00
years. With that,
49:01
I guess. So. I guess they've shot some bird. My birds aren't
49:05
real. No, we all know the birds aren't
49:07
filtered into this as well. But once they had the
49:10
characteristics of this new balloon, you know, and were able
49:14
to analyze it very specifically, they could probably go back
49:16
through their their radar data and identify other cases very
49:22
specifically.
49:23
So that problems are the first one probably helped them get the
49:26
radar signature, so they could figure out and so they could
49:28
know what's a balloon. It's a balloon people. But yeah, that
49:36
is not the narrative. The narrative is questioning what is
49:40
it? Oh, whoa, whoa, no obvious propulsion mechanism.
49:45
No. It's a nice magic.
49:48
What flies without an obvious propulsion mechanism I it's hard
49:53
to think of one of the first things that ever was airborne in
49:56
history. Manmade was a balloon. You Now Oh man it but it makes
50:02
it exciting and I love that China now has won and we it's
50:07
well documented that we have high though to buy the program
50:11
you brought some of that up earlier which is this maybe the
50:14
whole thing was a hoax which I don't think so. But it's quite
50:17
possible that the Chinese one is a hoax just to balance things
50:21
out Sure. Sure. So they can have their little financial meetings
50:25
divvy up the world who knows what's going on? I don't know
50:28
what Yeltsin and his guy Yeltsin, Yeltsin, Janet of all
50:32
people,
50:33
Janet Yeltsin. It's Yellen
50:37
may stay with the LCM. With you,
50:38
I'm with Yeltsin. I think Yeltsin is funny so I guess
50:42
we know her name is Yellen. So she said the head of a melon so
50:47
she had a meeting with somebody with a Chinese guy in Davos and
50:53
they guess they were having a good time yak and yeah, and they
50:57
decided on something and they have to finish this off I guess
51:00
they had to go to so she's gonna I don't know what's gonna happen
51:03
but I it's very suspicious. That's just fantastic night was
51:08
not the narrative or the public's getting whatever's
51:10
going on with China.
51:13
Yeah, but we'll see. I love this this morning's with Bloomberg.
51:17
So it was launched properly. They sent this center press
51:20
release to the right outlets, because Bloomberg will make a
51:23
difference over print anything and so what the crazy especially
51:27
it has to do with climate change. I don't know what this
51:30
is the China over the port. So I don't know. I don't know. But
51:34
there was all kinds of great stuff and I love that they're
51:37
gonna, you know, they're feeding the algos. Because, of course
51:40
that means that the answers for our defense come from chat GPT
51:45
you know, is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a balloon? I'm
51:48
asking the question, please try GPT can I be of assistance?
51:54
Yeah. Do we shoot it down or not? So then we have I would say
51:59
as predicted the massive failure of this chat GPT bowl crap. I
52:07
mean, of epic proportions. It. You even said that this Google
52:11
Bard, which you immediately said Google barf which I love because
52:16
now I use it everywhere the Google barf out. That bought
52:20
failed. a multibillion dollar duel is underway to be the front
52:25
door of the internet of race start Microsoft it's Microsoft
52:32
vs bar for official intelligence will surround conversations with
52:36
its software and search engine Bing bagel race to announced
52:39
similar plans both tech giants trying to change the internet
52:43
from a world in which we navigate between webpages to one
52:46
where interactive discussions with chatbots gives us
52:49
information for a generation. Google has been the verb for
52:53
finding things online, and it commands more than 90% of the
52:57
search engine market. But Microsoft thanks to its
52:59
partnership with chat GBT maker open AI is on the attack. Now
53:04
let's see what happened Friday after our show. It definitely is
53:07
an arms race
53:08
being as Rocket arms raster charts. So much of the world is
53:11
organized around serving Google and understand what people are
53:15
searching for in Google,
53:16
Chinese tech giants Baidu and Alibaba also plan to debut new
53:20
AI technology. But while chatbots look authoritative AI
53:25
can make mistakes. Google's own demo for its new chatbot called
53:29
Bard included a basic factual error. And research has shown
53:33
that AI trained to mimic human language picks up our biases.
53:37
critics worry the race to make money from AI technology is
53:40
moving too fast.
53:42
I would love to hear a CEO saying we've got the research
53:46
we're capable of making. But we're pausing. And we urge
53:49
others to do so as well, instead of just saying, Oh, we're going
53:52
to outrace the other
53:54
but with billions that started. The race is already on.
53:57
Yeah. That woman sounds just like a woman that used to be at
54:02
NPR and said advertising or whatever you call it. Yeah. It's
54:07
a milieu of these women.
54:09
Oh, PR ladies.
54:12
Yeah, can I kind of put there also a lot of executives with
54:16
this voice, this intonation. This is a joke. Hold on
54:19
a second. Hello. I have that clip.
54:21
Okay, moving on to money, how corporate underwriting revenues
54:25
holding up in the recession. And
54:27
yeah, she's just, but of course it was Jill, I think who gave
54:31
what about foundation
54:32
grants to different stories. Underwriting is underwriting is
54:40
is down it's down for everybody.
54:42
Let's listen to the lady over here. urge others to do so as
54:45
well instead of
54:46
sounds more like a person answering asking the question.
54:48
Yeah, you're more like a journalist. That would be right,
54:51
because PR people mostly
54:53
Okay, moving on to money. How are NPR is positive and we urge
54:58
others to do so as well. Well, instead of just saying, Oh,
55:01
we're going to outrageous
55:03
corporate underwriting revenue holding good and what about
55:06
foundation grants
55:07
got to finish in
55:09
two different stories. Underwriting is underwriting is
55:14
is down, it's down for everybody. I mean, this is this
55:18
is the this is the area that is most down for us is in is in
55:21
sponsorship, underwriting advertising, call it whatever
55:24
you want. Yeah,
55:25
saw the same thing. Now, what I loved about this is so Google
55:30
presents Google barf. It fails, the first question that was
55:34
asked it answers incorrectly. Because some scientist says hold
55:38
that was incorrect. The stock drops 9% $100 billion valuation
55:44
wiped off. That was a mistake $100 billion in with one one
55:49
stupid question. And this is the point is
55:53
Yeah. But don't you have to consider the possibility that
55:56
was meant to answer the question wrong. So to get get off this
56:00
track, because as you pointed out, this is not good for
56:04
advertising.
56:05
It's not good for anything. But I I, you know, I think that
56:12
Google is much more on the ropes than we know. If you they still
56:16
spend $13 billion a quarter on traffic acquisition costs $13
56:22
billion to get people to come to Google, so they can advertise to
56:28
them. That's a lot of money. As they're they're doing a version
56:34
with everyone does of arbitrage. What does it cost me to get some
56:38
people over here? How much can I make on the ads? But, but for
56:42
some reason, this chat GPT had caught the marketing. It's and I
56:46
think it's also partially venture capital venture capital
56:51
firms, venture capitalists who are, in my opinion, mostly
56:55
moronic. They, oh, oh, oh, I'm gonna be example. Remember, we
57:01
had pod show. And, and we had Kleiner Perkins as one of our
57:07
investors, one of the, at the time, one of the big shots,
57:10
one of the big shots along with Sequoia, but we dealt more and
57:13
Ray Lane Ray Lane was our partner that we dealt with was,
57:17
you know, the May he had run Oracle as president, famous,
57:20
very famous guy. And so it was in fact, the woman who later
57:25
sued for sexual harassment. What was her name?
57:28
I can't remember. Ilan.
57:31
Ellen Powell, Ellen Powell. I'm gonna say Pow,
57:34
pow. Pow. I can't think of when No, I think it was Ellen Powell.
57:39
Yeah. Was Ellen Powell. So we're in the middle floating around
57:41
writing books. And she's
57:43
Oh, yeah. So we're sitting there in the meeting. And yeah, and
57:47
we're building pod show. And at the time, things were popping,
57:51
things were happening. And along came juiced. Do we remember
57:55
juiced j which was some kind of it was from the makers of Skype,
58:03
which is, which is the only reason why they got any
58:05
attention. And it was some kind of, you know, like, this is a
58:08
video streaming thing. It was very, I can't even explain what
58:11
it was. But in the meeting, it's and where is it in the meeting?
58:17
Yeah, you should really make it more like juiced. Yeah, juice,
58:20
like, has to be like juice. And we're like, What are you talking
58:23
about, and by the way, Ron blue and then went off and turned it
58:26
into me vo to make it look like YouTube. So mistakes are made
58:32
all the time everywhere. Whereas podcasting is still here, I
58:37
might point out, so when you when you get this chat GPT and
58:40
you got to PA man chat, chat. GPT, Microsoft invested in Amen.
58:45
And that Elon Musk has that yet. GPT. Look at it. Look at it.
58:48
It's doing poems. It's writing term papers. We need to have
58:52
this on Google. No worries, said Sundar Pichai, who clearly knows
58:58
that this is not artificial. He knows what artificial
59:00
intelligence is. And he knows that it's far and you know,
59:02
machine learning. He knows there's applications. This is a
59:05
parlor trick. Just because it's typing out and you think that
59:08
it's you're talking to a human This is great. And he says,
59:11
Okay, off, we can do that. We got Google barf. It fails,
59:17
right? No, maybe Maybe you're right. Maybe you're right. But I
59:20
have story after story of Google is losing control. Google loses
59:25
$100 billion of market value after chatbox incorrectly enters
59:28
question about Webb Space Telescope. There's apparently a
59:33
fairly easy one. So this may just be these companies. I've
59:39
said it before they do go away. Big companies, they do end and
59:44
new ones come in and replace it. And Google was the darling when
59:48
we were all using Alta Vista. That was that was the Search
59:53
Engine and Google came in and they had their algo their
59:56
algorithm which was the you know how many Have inbound links does
1:00:01
a website have, and that would be deemed the top of the search
1:00:06
results. And they also did it fast because that was their main
1:00:09
marketing is this, this got to you in 1.2 seconds. That was
1:00:15
that was all part of what Google was. And at
1:00:17
this speed was a big deal. But I think people that smart money
1:00:20
was using Alta Vista, but the public in general is using
1:00:23
Yahoo.
1:00:24
Sure, then look where that went. Same thing. Yahoo, AOL, MySpace,
1:00:33
you can go on and on. It does happen the new thing, which of
1:00:37
course is tick tock, then you notice tick tock is not doing
1:00:41
any of that. Doing. They know how it works. They have humans,
1:00:45
they have idiots who go oh, you Oh, look at this fool. This is
1:00:49
the restaurant you want to eat at. So, which we know from
1:00:53
research is true. One in two people go to Tiktok before they
1:00:57
go to Google to search for stuff. So Google is in trouble.
1:01:01
And they've also overdone it with sponsored links and paid
1:01:05
for links and stuff they own. And the whole thing, of course,
1:01:09
is a giant scamp. So I love that this is happening. This is
1:01:13
really funny and try to try to make out we got a cool note from
1:01:19
someone in the language business. I see. Meg sees Meg
1:01:29
Meg I think internet. I've been thinking about chat GPT a lot
1:01:34
late even lately and have enjoyed your discussions and
1:01:36
insights on the show. There's a concept in linguistics called
1:01:39
poverty of the stimulus, which refers to children who acquire a
1:01:43
language despite having an incomplete exposure to that
1:01:47
language. That is they never hear all the words in context
1:01:52
and often hear ungrammatical bits of language, yet they still
1:01:55
acquire language to a high level chat. GPT is trained on a much
1:01:59
more complete dataset than any human. The bot can mimic
1:02:03
language, sometimes producing, quote, better output than a
1:02:06
human. But she says I believe the fundamentally human thing
1:02:10
about language is that we learn to speak with a vastly inferior
1:02:13
dataset. So not until they meaning Google barf and
1:02:18
Microsoft and everyone else, train a chatbot to use language
1:02:21
with poverty, written written stimulus like us, I think they
1:02:25
will be on to something. I think that's very interesting. And
1:02:29
that is probably one of the things that we noticed
1:02:31
inherently. When when when these things right right out to talk
1:02:36
to you. It doesn't sound human because it's too much. It's to
1:02:41
the the resolution of the speech is too high. Does that make
1:02:45
sense?
1:02:48
Well, I can't say it makes sense. But it's, I can see it
1:02:52
being at play in play, because that's what she claims it means.
1:02:57
I like it.
1:02:57
Now how about this?
1:02:59
I liked the observation
1:03:00
that Well, I have a boots on the ground from someone in the
1:03:04
voiceover and audio book business. How about that?
1:03:09
Yeah. Now you're talking I have
1:03:11
a little boots on the ground for AI and voiceover. I'm a newer
1:03:14
audio book NARRATOR It's a side gig for me three to five books a
1:03:17
year. The expense the training learning the technical side and
1:03:20
actual time spent is intense. This this is insight that I
1:03:24
didn't have I'm very pleased that our this is Hello, this is
1:03:27
no agenda show. Our producers are boots on the ground. Go read
1:03:31
our mission statement. You can see that this is how we operate.
1:03:34
We
1:03:35
have someone in every field of expertise.
1:03:37
I'm waiting for my balloon wireless. I'm
1:03:39
waiting for the balloon pilots to show up. Yes, we probably
1:03:43
have one.
1:03:44
Oh definitely. The expense of the truck. I said it for an
1:03:47
eight hour book. It can take five times the amount of time
1:03:51
that I can believe that narrators make money three ways.
1:03:55
Pfh which is per finished hour by royalty only or smaller Pfh.
1:04:02
So per finished hour, plus royalty. A lot of newer
1:04:06
narrators do royalty only to get their foot in the door. My
1:04:10
experience is very difficult to actually make money on that. I
1:04:14
no longer do royalty only I believe it too. Not to mention
1:04:18
because I'm sure they screw you just like the record business.
1:04:21
It's the whole thing everything everything. Yeah, of course
1:04:25
not to mention delivering compelling, compelling
1:04:27
storytelling and trying to do weird character voices. My
1:04:31
Voiceover colleagues especially in audiobooks are in an absolute
1:04:35
uproar over AI. Find a way voices is a large audio book
1:04:40
distribution hub. Think of a dating website for authors and
1:04:44
narrators plus the distribution to all places audio books are
1:04:47
sold. Find a way voices who are now connected to Spotify has
1:04:51
language buried in their contract that states the audio
1:04:54
provided may be used to assist to assist machine learning for
1:04:59
Apple
1:05:00
Oh, yeah. Yeah, I see where that's going. But I think I have
1:05:04
a counter argument to what our friend here has to say, Okay.
1:05:10
Hello, I'm listening waiting for your counter argument. Oh, I
1:05:13
tell you, I tell you, you're still reading from him.
1:05:16
Doesn't matter. But. So the there is more. But the point is,
1:05:20
well, yeah, here's, let me just finish it. It's it's opt out of
1:05:26
the contract. So unless you know about what's going, what's going
1:05:30
on, when you read this, they can use that your voice unless you
1:05:35
opt out of the contract to be trained for AI. And as far as I
1:05:40
can see, also use the samples from your voice that and I have
1:05:43
the language here. So I believe that that is,
1:05:45
I believe, yes, I do believe that will be what they're gonna
1:05:48
do, yes, then they're gonna do with actor scenario. And that's
1:05:51
where you have to be on the top, you have to be on the head of
1:05:53
that you have to be ahead of this. Yeah. But my thinking was
1:05:56
the following that the voice guy can do train his own voice into
1:06:01
the AI and then have when he's given an assignment to read a
1:06:04
book, use the AI and then clean it up later, instead of spending
1:06:09
40 hours on an AI on what would he say was 10 to five to 110 to
1:06:13
155 times five to one says, instead of spending 50 hours on
1:06:18
it on a 10 hour read, just have the don't spend any time just
1:06:24
have your phony voice, do the read and then go in and clean it
1:06:29
up or you have to do little voices and stuff, do a cut ins,
1:06:32
and it would probably take half done by the time it takes right
1:06:36
now. That's what I was thinking.
1:06:39
So that works once and then it's all done. I mean, it's clear
1:06:42
that you are right. No,
1:06:43
not not if it's in the contract. Here's what has to happen. I've
1:06:46
said this on the show before I'm gonna say it again. There has to
1:06:49
be new laws written so your voice your distinctive voice is
1:06:54
copy written and owned by you.
1:06:57
Yeah, I'm in agreement with that. But guess what, that's not
1:07:01
going to happen fast enough. It's all it's just look, we have
1:07:04
Chinese balloons. got no time for this. We have need
1:07:07
resolutions to say we disagree with blown
1:07:09
just tell you this has to be done immediately. Yeah,
1:07:12
no dream on. That's not going to happen. It is going to happen
1:07:18
immediately. No. Not gonna happen immediately. It's
1:07:21
gonna happen quick.
1:07:23
Nah, okay. Well, I hope so. Because you're the first one to
1:07:27
go.
1:07:30
To use a phony. Yes, you are used to me but on the new, the
1:07:35
new no agenda show somehow. Without John C. Dvorak. Yes,
1:07:39
Adam, you're totally correct.
1:07:41
Why did you say John?
1:07:42
I don't think you're right.
1:07:46
That in fact, we're not it's only gonna be John C Dvorak
1:07:50
anymore. It's gonna be my sidekick. Thank you, Adam. I
1:07:53
love working with you. You're good you're on the money there
1:07:56
you so much better than John I know his rubbers were loose. So
1:08:00
you know it's really I can do this all day. In fact, I don't
1:08:04
even come don't even come on the next show
1:08:12
so there's that dead button is on the I made this
1:08:15
one. I made this one myself. I tuned it is not standard. You
1:08:20
got to use the systems there was an update so of course I was
1:08:23
playing with it. That's my that's my that's I
1:08:26
liked that guy.
1:08:29
Thank you, John. This is our exit strategy. Sometimes I'm on
1:08:33
Z 100
1:08:36
That guy is good. Isn't he is a guy I like it when we get to
1:08:40
give him a name.
1:08:41
Okay, well, how about a name? Can I be of assistance? Okay,
1:08:46
what's his name? We got to give him a name.
1:08:49
I think it's Zippy comes to mind.
1:08:54
I'm zippy. Zippy. Zippy, the AI of the no agenda show?
1:09:02
Yeah. Alright. Zippy in the house, zippy. Zippy is now our
1:09:05
official co host when whenever we need information we can
1:09:08
always call on Zippy because as we know Zippy is always right.
1:09:17
I'm glad you like it. Unexpected.
1:09:20
I think people that listen to this show have to think to
1:09:24
themselves. Podcasts is not as easy as it sounds right.
1:09:28
Thank you. Thank you. It's 40 years of experience here ladies
1:09:32
and gentlemen.
1:09:33
I have the Zippy character just show up on the show out of the
1:09:36
blue.
1:09:38
Well, you know, it's zippy, how do you have your character show
1:09:42
up on the podcast out of the blue? Why? Because it's the best
1:09:46
podcast in the universe. There you go.
1:09:50
You know what it's a little like this guy know, Freddie the fire
1:09:54
hose or whatever they guys know.
1:09:56
It's ready to fire walk. Hey, I don't
1:09:58
like that guy. It's me now. Debbie I think Zippy is a little
1:10:01
more upbeat. And what's the
1:10:04
boy he's totally zippy.
1:10:07
Positive Yeah, positive. That's it's a little more like this is
1:10:10
almost like an audio version of a ventriloquist. Yeah, that's
1:10:14
what it is. Is it any point if he can come excuse me, I gotta
1:10:19
say something shut up for a second zippy. No, I got
1:10:22
something important to say. All right. What do you want to say?
1:10:24
Nothing. There you go. Yeah. You know, this is a whole new
1:10:29
podcast.
1:10:32
Oh, he has three people. We've got three. Dummy. Woodhead,
1:10:37
Johnny.
1:10:40
Marty can even write bits for him. I mean, now Margaret, and
1:10:43
that's what Marty is going to be good at. No, we have to temper
1:10:50
Zippy though, but thank you. We have a name. Zippy is in the bag
1:10:54
right now. So the I think we just have to talk for a moment
1:11:02
about the pushback the enormous pushback on see more Hirsch's
1:11:08
substack article about who blowed up the North Stream to
1:11:14
pipeline. Yeah,
1:11:15
I read it after the show. And what did you What did you think?
1:11:19
It's very classic Seymour Hersh. Lot of confidential sources. A
1:11:25
little, a little bit of embellishment, I believe, but
1:11:28
not too much. I think he's gone to money. I think generally
1:11:31
speaking, he blew this out of the water. I did is a little
1:11:35
different than that read earlier thesis that it was UK. There was
1:11:43
a couple of there was a number of things. But this was this
1:11:46
made the most sense. And coming from him and it was well put
1:11:51
together. I'd liked it a lot. I think he's he nailed it. And got
1:11:57
no play.
1:11:58
Well, it got pushed back is what uh, got it. So first, there was
1:12:03
a press briefing at the State Department. So Jake Sullivan was
1:12:08
taking it on and it's the audio sounds a little thin. I'm not
1:12:12
sure what happened. Why, why? Why it's so Theano. From the
1:12:16
microphone that the journalist and no, Matt, by the way, I was
1:12:19
I was waiting for Matt to show up with a question, but I
1:12:21
haven't found one of him of his yet. This is one of the one of
1:12:25
the reporters who I recognize from the State Department
1:12:27
briefing room. And here's here's a snippet.
1:12:30
I'm sure you're aware of the new report from Seymour Hersh, how
1:12:33
America took up the Nord Stream pipeline and the White House's
1:12:35
denial of any involvement given the long standing opposition to
1:12:39
the pipeline, Secretary Clinton's calling its demise a
1:12:42
tremendous opportunity. And Secretary under secretaries of
1:12:46
state no one's saying that the US officials were pleased with
1:12:50
the production of the pipeline, especially the secret of
1:12:54
investigation. Do you think the US government's denial of
1:12:59
involvement is credible? I absolutely do. And I repeated
1:13:02
here. Let me follow up on that, if I might, have you or anybody
1:13:07
else in the State Department have any communication with
1:13:10
German Norwegian ambassadors or other allies or officials on
1:13:13
this matter, on the matter of Nord Stream to on the matter of
1:13:19
the latest allegations? Which apparently, it is source, it is
1:13:26
a fairly it is it would be would not be? It would it would not be
1:13:32
typical for us to engage allies and partners on something that
1:13:36
is utter and complete nonsense, and
1:13:39
I love this. So, no, of course, we wouldn't engage allies and
1:13:43
other other entities on something that's nonsense is so
1:13:48
good.
1:13:48
It would not be typical for us to engage allies and partners on
1:13:52
something that is utter and complete nonsense. And that
1:13:55
should be rejected out of hand by anyone who is looking at it
1:13:59
through through an objective lens. Yes, go ahead. With one
1:14:02
more aspect on this. One of the allegations that are made is
1:14:06
that it was taken off the CIA in order to prevent involvement of
1:14:12
oversight as a covert operation to meet the peace. I'm familiar
1:14:17
with familiar with it. One of his allegations is that it was
1:14:20
taken off the ground rather than let this this propaganda be
1:14:24
aired in the briefing room,
1:14:26
rather than let this propaganda be aired in the briefing room or
1:14:30
operation.
1:14:31
Did you read the piece? I'm familiar with it. One of his
1:14:34
allegations is that it was taken off Route rather than let this
1:14:39
this propaganda be aired in the briefing room. Let me just say
1:14:44
it is a fundamental misunderstanding of oversight in
1:14:46
our US Congress beyond getting his facts entirely wrong as he
1:14:50
has before in very high profile ways. It is a fundamental
1:14:54
misunderstanding suggest that
1:14:56
I love to discredit station here, rather than you get Things
1:15:00
rot in rather high profile ways he's gotten things wrong. What
1:15:04
was that? Was that the the My Lai Massacre or was that the Abu
1:15:09
Ghraib prison torture? Was that wrong and hope high profile
1:15:11
ways? What was that? What did he screw up our award? Pulitzer
1:15:15
Prize winning award winning journalist, investigative
1:15:18
journalist, Seymour Hersh, why did he screw up? Which Where was
1:15:21
he? So oh, the Russian collusion, story collusion. So
1:15:24
that's, that was where he really screwed up, if I recall, because
1:15:28
he was wrong, and was probably
1:15:30
if they had her, she does have a bad habit. And if they wanted to
1:15:36
smear him, they could they could do this at the age one of the
1:15:39
agencies that they put it together, they put some time
1:15:42
into it. I don't think they do. I think he's a an asset. I think
1:15:48
the agencies, the Intel agents,
1:15:51
who's an assets, Hirsch is an asset.
1:15:53
I think he's an asset because he because he does dig through
1:15:56
stuff. He does find leaks. He
1:15:59
is an asset for who I don't understand what you're saying.
1:16:01
We say an asset. I
1:16:02
think he's an asset for the for the spy agencies. Ah, because he
1:16:07
shows them that here's where you screwed up. And it's like,
1:16:11
here's another look, look what I found. You guys aren't very good
1:16:14
at this. I because I just here's the whole story. Ah, here he is,
1:16:18
again. Because if they wanted to smear him and get him out of the
1:16:20
picture completely, they could do it because he's known amongst
1:16:25
all monks, journalists, even who know him. Well. He's known for
1:16:30
saying screwy stuff. Yeah. In public. Yes. He never writes.
1:16:35
Anything that's that's inaccurate, or far as he's
1:16:39
concerned, is writing is impeccable. But when he goes and
1:16:43
give speeches, he says weird stuff that he never writes up
1:16:47
that if you documented it, you could ruin him.
1:16:50
Let's listen is another 30 seconds.
1:16:52
Well, one of his allegations is that it was taken off Route
1:16:56
rather than let this this propaganda get aired in the
1:16:59
briefing room. Let me just say it is a fundamental
1:17:03
misunderstanding of oversight in our US Congress, beyond getting
1:17:06
his facts entirely wrong, as he has before in very high profile
1:17:11
ways is a fundamental misunderstanding suggests that
1:17:14
our intelligence community is not subject to oversight. Anyone
1:17:18
who writes that anything or writes anything like that? No,
1:17:20
no. No, no. Roads, it was taken off of.
1:17:27
Can you back it up? Does this guy actually say our
1:17:30
intelligence community is not subject to oversight
1:17:35
as before, and very high profile ways? AI is a fundamental
1:17:39
misunderstanding suggests that our intelligence community is
1:17:42
not subject to oversight.
1:17:45
You got it right. Yeah. Okay. Anything racist?
1:17:48
Okay. Yeah. Well, so
1:17:49
that was part of the part of the interview, or the interesting
1:17:53
part of the article, which I haven't highlighted, was that
1:17:57
once it's taken out of the intelligence community move to
1:18:02
if we the way President Biden and Victoria Nuland said that,
1:18:05
you know, we know how to do it, something changed, and they did
1:18:09
not have to report to Congress that is the illicit ticket.
1:18:12
technicality the Calculate. And so Sullivan is saying that's not
1:18:16
true.
1:18:16
Anyone who writes that anything who writes anything like that?
1:18:20
No, no, no, no, that you wrote that it was taken off of a CIA
1:18:26
and put under military in order to our military is also subject
1:18:29
to rigorous oversight. The answer is yes. You recognize and
1:18:33
abide by the War Powers pause in such a situation and the War
1:18:38
Powers resolution in a situation your question is if we abide by
1:18:43
the War Powers resolution in a situation that never occurred,
1:18:47
you know, any situation or any situation involving US military,
1:18:50
we do abide by the more powers. We follow the law in every
1:18:54
instance. Yes. War Powers resolution, we follow the war
1:18:57
power resolute War Powers resolution and the broader law
1:19:00
in every instance. Yeah,
1:19:01
he said in the broader law, so that was that I am not a lawyer,
1:19:07
so I can't really figure out if he's right or not,
1:19:10
but we have to be a specialist lawyer to not just any lawyer.
1:19:13
Yeah. Which,
1:19:15
um, you know, I have some qualifications.
1:19:17
Yes. Shut up zippy. So that just it sounds squirrely, what he's
1:19:24
doing there sounds squirrely, it was fun to watch.
1:19:27
This is a horrible situation that Hearst is uncovered. Verse
1:19:33
her shirt. Again, eventually he's uncovered a situation
1:19:38
that's inexcusable. We can't be doing this.
1:19:41
What was cool about Of course, I read the Dutch press, actually
1:19:46
and Scylla sent this to me. To RTL news. Yeah, RTL is
1:19:52
entertainment organization, but okay, they have news, RTL news.
1:19:58
They reported on this you know, some Hirsch claims to have
1:20:02
evidence and whistleblower and everything inside source that
1:20:06
the Americans blew up the pipeline that they did it and so
1:20:10
that of course had to be stopped because you know the there they
1:20:14
got the message late or the memos Oh no, no. So they put an
1:20:18
overlay on top of the story you know, so that you see that first
1:20:22
before you read the story about the story. And I said, we need
1:20:26
to be really careful about this story because this guy is a
1:20:30
known disinformation journalist. Why wait and wait for it could
1:20:35
because the last time he said anything that you know, the last
1:20:37
time you report on anything that was true, was Watergate. They
1:20:42
don't even have the right guy. They're thinking Woodward and
1:20:46
Bernstein. sigh Hearst didn't report on Watergate. Not that I
1:20:52
recall. But that's how stupid this is. Oh, we gotta put
1:20:57
something we got discredit him. Watergate. It's an old guy. Oh,
1:21:01
one of those guys. Yeah. Watergate. Wow, that stupid. Now
1:21:07
I have a supercut. Just to remind us, just to remind us,
1:21:13
the collusion and the equal messaging from politicians, the
1:21:18
intelligence community community, the high altitude
1:21:21
balloon community, and the media. This comes from mata aebs
1:21:28
substack. It's a video done by ORF, then you need to see the
1:21:33
whole it's almost eight minutes, but you just tell me when you'd
1:21:37
like to stop. It is and everyone i You must go watch this
1:21:43
supercut. And you'll recognize many of the voices and Oh,
1:21:47
surprise, it's across the board. It's Republicans, it's
1:21:50
Democrats. It's Fox News. And CNN. They were all all all in on
1:21:57
the messaging,
1:21:58
there will be no longer a Nord Stream to we will bring it into.
1:22:03
But how will you how will you do that?
1:22:06
I promise you will be able to do.
1:22:10
So Russia's Nord Stream pipeline I
1:22:13
mean, we've have to conclude without the evidence that is
1:22:16
most likely Russia
1:22:18
Russian sabotage on its own infrastructure
1:22:21
for the common sense matter. I think it's Putin his way of
1:22:23
sending a message what Putin is saying to us by blowing up his
1:22:26
pipeline is, look, I can blow up a pipeline. Everyone knows that
1:22:30
Putin did this themselves closest thing to a smoking gun
1:22:33
without the direct proof.
1:22:35
logic and common sense will tell you that without the evidence,
1:22:38
Russia
1:22:38
was behind the incident. You can see it for sure who
1:22:41
sabotaged the Nord Stream two pipeline, the Russians. I love
1:22:47
the certainty and I appreciate the insight. Yeah, there's
1:22:50
exactly one country on that list of suspects bread. And Russia
1:22:54
wouldn't rush it would be yet it's hard to imagine others with
1:22:57
a significant motive,
1:22:58
but we will bring in Nord Stream to not move forward who did it
1:23:03
why not Mr. One way or another Nord Stream two will not move
1:23:09
forward but it remains
1:23:10
unclear who could have been behind the Nord Stream pipeline
1:23:13
leaks
1:23:13
made explicitly clear to anyone involved with constructing this
1:23:17
pipeline as the consequences of doing so are catastrophic Fred
1:23:21
crews would do such a thing like this I mean
1:23:23
that offers tremendous strategic opportunities
1:23:26
still don't know who caused damage to the natural gas
1:23:29
pipelines US Secretary of
1:23:30
State warned against the pipeline
1:23:32
Nord Stream pipeline mystery continues us
1:23:35
says they'll do everything to stop the Nord Stream pipeline
1:23:38
we do everything we can and I have no
1:23:40
idea who is responsible she'll Nord Stream to nail put
1:23:45
an end to use all the tools available
1:23:48
stop the Nord Stream to
1:23:49
and let it rust the neath the waves of the Baltic it's almost
1:23:52
inconceivable to think that the US will do is
1:23:55
a member of European Parliament publicly thanks to us for
1:23:58
blowing up the pipelines
1:24:00
this pipeline must be stopped so
1:24:02
we'll do that and why according to US government think tank Rand
1:24:06
Corp the first step to weaken Russia is to stop Nord Stream
1:24:10
two so it's a real mystery
1:24:12
hauled Nord Stream to to stop Russia shut down the Nord Stream
1:24:16
two pipeline stop
1:24:17
things on Nord Stream,
1:24:20
Nord Stream two forever permanently ending it
1:24:22
permanently.
1:24:23
Once and for all us must take immediate steps to terminate
1:24:26
Nord Stream cancelled the Nord Stream pipeline. Absolutely. We
1:24:30
should cut it off. We must stop this Nord Stream we have made
1:24:33
clear to
1:24:33
the Russians that that pipeline is at risk if they move further
1:24:37
into Ukraine
1:24:37
can't find anybody who'd be the obvious culprit
1:24:40
in all of this when it comes to North Stream to the pipeline
1:24:44
that would bring natural gas from Russia to Germany. It will
1:24:47
not happen
1:24:48
they want some more because I love the story they built on
1:24:51
this
1:24:53
that's it's it's pretty obvious you know, we everyone's
1:24:57
demanding something happened and then Glenn Monroe shouldn't
1:25:00
blame blame Russia. It's unbelievable how you can get
1:25:03
away with that.
1:25:04
And it's everyone it was want to hear a little bit more.
1:25:08
I think we've heard enough. Okay, but you can play it play
1:25:11
another minute.
1:25:14
It was a deliberate act of sabotage. And now the Russians
1:25:19
are pumping out disinformation lies gonna bring in
1:25:22
former CIA Director John Brennan
1:25:24
is certainly the most likely suspect Russia is certainly the
1:25:27
likeliest suspect of Russia is most likely behind this Russia
1:25:31
is the likely cause of likelihood
1:25:33
that Russia is behind the attacks are
1:25:35
very likely Russian, likely Russian, it is likely that this
1:25:39
is an act by Russia,
1:25:41
the most likely thing is this. In fact, the most likely thing
1:25:44
Russia is most likely suspect at this point, or too many is
1:25:47
Russia. I've heard people I trust saying that it's just
1:25:50
probably Russia, Vladimir Putin the most like Russia is
1:25:53
likely to blame. I mean, that's totally something Putin would
1:25:56
do. And then go blame it on someone else, essentially a
1:25:59
scenario of cutting off your nose to spite your face here.
1:26:01
Why
1:26:02
would Russia bomb its own pipeline? It doesn't seem to
1:26:05
make sense if you're thinking in a rational actor scenario, but
1:26:09
experts agree that
1:26:11
Russia is experts agree. What's cool, though, is when you see
1:26:15
that thing it you know what, like the hill? What's that baby
1:26:19
face kid named? Who's on the Hill podcast? It's it's left
1:26:24
right is everything. They're all in on it, or they're all in on
1:26:27
it and to an unbelievable degree,
1:26:30
you know? Well, you know, Adam, it's possible that Putin did it
1:26:35
because it makes it makes us look bad. So what he does, he's
1:26:39
tricky. Tricky. Of course.
1:26:41
That's what he does. So
1:26:42
he's gonna invest a few billion bucks in a pipeline and then
1:26:45
blow it up so he can make us look bad.
1:26:48
I get it. I'm with you on that one.
1:26:52
So there are some thing or analysis that's our fine media.
1:26:56
even think twice about Yeah, that's weird.
1:27:02
So is the Lensky wrapped up his his world tour in Brussels at
1:27:08
the European Union? You know, because he went everywhere
1:27:12
pretty much. France did not much reporting on it here because you
1:27:15
know, balloon, or UFO. UFO, here's France to France 24. With
1:27:22
with a wrap up,
1:27:23
it was a case of Welcome home. Welcome to the EU. That's how
1:27:27
European Council chief Charles Michel and greeted Volodymyr
1:27:30
Zelensky. As the Ukrainian President arrived in Brussels.
1:27:34
It's just the latest stop on a tour of Europe that saw him meet
1:27:37
with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. In London yesterday. He
1:27:40
has been pressing European leaders for more military
1:27:43
support and underlining the importance of EU unity in the
1:27:47
face of existential threats. The question of EU membership was
1:27:51
also a major theme addressed by Commission President Ursula von
1:27:55
der Leyen and Zelensky himself. Let's hear from them.
1:27:59
Your fight is a fight for independence in the accuracy for
1:28:03
free Europe. We all heard the urgency of your call to support
1:28:08
Ukraine now now. You're now in a very moving manner about and
1:28:16
praising the European way of life. And to added that
1:28:21
Ukrainians want to come home to this European way of life. And
1:28:25
indeed today, you see we are one family, one vision, and family
1:28:32
members help each other. You can count on us
1:28:37
long term, and Europe will only happen. Ukraine is the bookends
1:28:44
of victory and will become the members Member of the European
1:28:48
Union. This is the unity we've managed to build.
1:28:51
That was the translator for Solinsky and you hear very
1:28:53
clearly what you want peace now. No, not until we're a member of
1:28:58
the European Union.
1:29:02
Well, I have a couple of clips on this. But since you're on
1:29:05
that particular topic, let's play what the Chinese think of
1:29:09
this. This may have changed from NTT. If I screw it, New Tang
1:29:15
Dynasty, I'm going to China China's CGT N and what is this?
1:29:24
Well, this is the Chinese global television network. So this
1:29:27
is the this these guys are propria PRC Pro Child pro pro
1:29:32
Sheena.
1:29:33
Okay, this is China, China on the list. This is how they were
1:29:36
looking at this what you just played this is China Ukraine EU
1:29:39
help.
1:29:40
Okay. European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen
1:29:44
has assured Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky of the
1:29:48
support by the European Union. She says Ukraine and the EU are
1:29:52
one family and that Ukraine can depend on the block support and
1:29:56
his fight against Russia.
1:29:57
I love that our
1:29:58
clips mesh together does that henskee has delivered a speech
1:30:01
to European lawmakers and later addressed all leaders of the EU
1:30:05
members special summit in Brussels. Alex Korea has more
1:30:09
President Solinsky came to Brussels primarily to thank his
1:30:12
European allies, billions of euros have been spent from the
1:30:15
27 Member States and from the European Union on supporting
1:30:18
Ukraine. He also wants to ask for more help make more for
1:30:22
fighter jets. On the other hand accession to the European Union,
1:30:25
a big theme for President Lecky, he said, Look, we want to be
1:30:28
members of the EU. We want those accession negotiations to begin
1:30:31
within a year. That is a different timeline to what the
1:30:34
Europeans are saying Ursula von der Leyen saying, Look, it'll
1:30:37
happen when it happens. It's a merit based system. There is no
1:30:40
rigid timeline. But what is clear is that the Ukrainians
1:30:42
want that access as quickly as possible, and the Europeans are
1:30:45
saying it can happen. It's just a question of whether or not you
1:30:48
put those reforms in place.
1:30:50
Well, hold on a second. I like that because now we're talking
1:30:54
about who's in the EU and who's not in the EU. And there are
1:31:00
many other candidate countries, one of them being Moldova, and I
1:31:06
had to get this clip from wi o n. In Indian news outfit. And
1:31:12
Moldova the government just quit.
1:31:15
His Prime Minister has resigned and the government has
1:31:17
collapsed. The Pro Western government resigned after a
1:31:21
turbulent 18 months in power, marred by economic turmoil and
1:31:25
spillover effects of the Ukraine war. Shortly before the Prime
1:31:29
Minister Natalia got released a statement down the government
1:31:33
said a Russian missile violated Moldova and airspace Russia's
1:31:36
envoy was summoned to protest the SPS violation. Moscow has
1:31:41
troops in Moldova is breakaway region in Transnistria. Russia
1:31:45
has bristled at the possibility of the former Soviet republic
1:31:49
joining the EU. On Thursday, the country's intelligence service
1:31:52
confirmed Ukrainian allegations that Russia has acted to
1:31:56
destabilize Moldova, the former Soviet republics.
1:32:01
Were taking confirmation from Ukraine now. They're the guys
1:32:05
that confirmed something
1:32:06
hey, the country's intelligence service confirmed Ukrainian
1:32:09
allegation. Soviet Republic joining the EU on Thursday, the
1:32:14
country's intelligence service confirmed Ukrainian allegations
1:32:17
that Russia has acted to destabilize Moldova. The former
1:32:21
Soviet republic of 2.5 million has suffered from soaring
1:32:25
inflation and was strained last year by an influx of Ukrainian
1:32:29
refugees. It has also suffered power cuts following Russian air
1:32:34
attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. As dependence on
1:32:38
Russian gas is another issue. The steep price increases
1:32:41
particularly for Russian gas led to street protests last year.
1:32:46
The President and my sons we accepted the religious decision.
1:32:50
However, she has given no sign of abandoning her pro Western
1:32:54
policies, including seeking European Union accession. Last
1:32:58
year in a diplomatic triumph for presidents undo the EU leaders
1:33:02
accepted Moldova as a membership candidate. The government had
1:33:06
been mapping out reforms to accelerate the session to the 27
1:33:10
nation bloc and working on diversifying its energy supply.
1:33:16
So Moldova, under Moldova on deck interesting. Yeah. Well, to
1:33:28
the to the west to the west of Ukraine, I might point out.
1:33:33
So I'm looking I get the other CGT. Right.
1:33:37
Well, I'll just gonna ask you a question. Could they be now
1:33:40
surrounding Ukraine? By bringing Moldova you know, Bo
1:33:45
rushing idea that could be? That'd be pretty tricky.
1:33:50
That'd be very tricky. rooskies I mean, it's to the south men
1:33:54
should say not really not completely to the west, but I
1:33:56
don't have my map. Well, I do to the north of Odessa. So ah, they
1:34:03
it could be it could be a Western Southwestern flank.
1:34:08
piece. Like he said, military parlance. flank. Okay, back to
1:34:13
you, Bob.
1:34:14
Now, there was an interesting clip. I've got it. This one is
1:34:18
going to be you're going to like
1:34:22
Cuomo,
1:34:24
on his show.
1:34:25
You owe the kid
1:34:26
Cuomo, not the old guy late. The Chris Chris. Chris. Chris is
1:34:30
going to go back to Ukraine today. Oh, because, yes,
1:34:33
Friday because he's brave, very brave.
1:34:37
And throughout this particular episode, I can get some more
1:34:40
examples of this for the next show. But he goes on and every
1:34:42
time he talks to anybody says you think this is important is
1:34:45
me going to Ukraine? No. And by the way, I'll be in Ukraine
1:34:48
next.
1:34:49
Oh, can I just say something about this? I got a note from
1:34:52
one of our guys. Who's in love if I guess so right off the bat.
1:35:00
We're right on the border. Well,
1:35:01
if it is East is is is the western part, right where? West.
1:35:06
And so so the journalists are there, they're embedded, you
1:35:09
know, they're hanging out. And according to my source known to
1:35:13
me, they are whoring and drinking and just going out. And
1:35:18
then in Ukraine, that's what you do. And anyone who writes
1:35:22
something negative about Ukraine is off the party bus. They're
1:35:26
sent home. And then but specifically whoring and
1:35:31
drinking was pointed out to me. Yeah. So Chris, Chris Cuomo is
1:35:36
going to the source of pleasure,
1:35:37
he needs to get laid. He does.
1:35:40
So
1:35:42
but he lets a little item slip. And what's funny about it is
1:35:46
right after he gives his little spiel, he has a general on and
1:35:51
the general he says like to, like this woman after the
1:35:54
Canadian gen two Gen is looking like a deer in the headlights,
1:35:58
like, what did you just say? And God, I hope you're not going to
1:36:02
ask me about it, which is what he should do. But see if you can
1:36:06
figure in this little this is the opening. This is the bonus
1:36:10
clip, by the way. This is the his little is his lead up to the
1:36:15
to the item that I'm talking about, which is like what, and
1:36:19
then his continuation, and he's oblivious to what he said. And I
1:36:25
want to mention the old saying from World War Two loose lips,
1:36:28
sink ships.
1:36:30
And as always, this shows about you, my brothers and sisters. So
1:36:33
have your say 1-844-968-7720 and get it in, because I'm not here
1:36:39
tomorrow, because we're traveling to Ukraine. We're
1:36:42
gonna leave right after this. Okay. And if everything goes
1:36:46
right, we'll be up and live for you Monday from what is
1:36:50
happening in Ukraine, from somewhere in there that we can
1:36:53
get a signal out. Yeah. Why are we going? Why? Two reasons. One,
1:36:57
it's the one year anniversary of something that was supposed to
1:36:59
just take a few weeks. Okay. And once again, today, Ukraine's
1:37:03
president made an
1:37:04
enlightenment women whose side is he on? When he says it was
1:37:08
only supposed to take a few weeks? What did he believe
1:37:11
Putin?
1:37:13
Well, I don't know what who said he's, I mean, he's on the up
1:37:16
promotes the war. So he's on that side? I don't know. He's,
1:37:19
he's, he's, I think the guy is not that bright. And what
1:37:25
happens when he tells the next story is like, Wait a minute.
1:37:29
One, it's the one year anniversary of something that
1:37:31
was supposed to just take a few weeks. Okay. And once again,
1:37:34
today, Ukraine's president made an emotional plea for more help,
1:37:39
not just from us, from our allies all around the world all
1:37:42
around the region. And I want to tell you about that. And I know
1:37:46
that there's a little bit of compassion, fatigue, and hey,
1:37:48
they're winning, right? So it's going to be okay. It's their
1:37:50
problem. Quick story. A buddy of mine is taking me into the city
1:37:55
right before now, okay, today, this happened. And he doesn't
1:37:59
seem okay. And I said, what's going on? What's wrong? He says,
1:38:04
I just
1:38:04
he's talking about his limo driver, is that a buddy of mine?
1:38:07
Because that's the kind of friends he would have. The limo
1:38:10
driver
1:38:14
is irrelevant. And he doesn't seem okay. And I said, what's
1:38:18
going on? What's wrong? He says, Oh, I just lost a friend. So I'm
1:38:22
very I'm very sorry, what happened? He said, Well, he was
1:38:25
in the army. And they don't know where he is now. And the rest of
1:38:29
this patrol came back. He wasn't there. So in the US Army was
1:38:34
training. He said, No, he was fighting in Ukraine. I said, Oh,
1:38:40
well, where was it? Oh, it was in this place called Buck moot.
1:38:45
Now, here I am on Long Island in New York, talking to guy I
1:38:49
didn't even know had any connection to the situation.
1:38:51
He's a buddy, though. And his friend is missing and presumed
1:38:57
the worst, hopefully not in the exact same place that my team
1:39:01
and I are about to go to. And you know, how when you hear a
1:39:04
story like that, you say, Oh, what a small world. Yeah, it is
1:39:08
a small world. And there is much more connective tissue, then we
1:39:13
assume that it's over there. It's their problem. It's not
1:39:17
their problem. Russia wanting to rebuild the Soviet Union is
1:39:22
going to be a problem, not just their problem, and there'll be a
1:39:27
lot of connective tissue stories like that when people from here
1:39:30
but ramifications of commerce of fuel of food and of course a
1:39:36
freedom. Okay,
1:39:39
so I'm listening to that saying, wait a minute. Do U S Army. We
1:39:45
have patrols. We have soldiers fighting and dying in Ukraine.
1:39:51
Since when?
1:39:52
Well, there's two ways to answer this one. I get daily reports of
1:39:59
marks killed in action, US mercenaries. So it just could be
1:40:05
just a mischaracterization that he was US Army versus he's a
1:40:09
mercenary. They fight for money anywhere. And they're in
1:40:12
northern Afghanistan and Iraq and any anywhere anywhere you
1:40:16
need America. We
1:40:18
are sinners everywhere. It used to be a magazine for him.
1:40:21
But how about this clip
1:40:22
to the war in Ukraine and tonight the White House now
1:40:24
confirming President Biden will travel to Poland to mark one
1:40:28
year since Russia's invasion of Ukraine. And tonight Russia now
1:40:31
wrapping up its major new assault. Tom Sufi boorish in
1:40:35
Ukraine again tonight.
1:40:37
David Russia launching a fresh wave of lethal attack drones
1:40:41
kyiv's air defense in action again tonight. It follows
1:40:44
earlier waves of missile and drone strikes targeting
1:40:47
Ukraine's power grid, Russian warships and bombers firing
1:40:50
those 100 missiles, cruise missiles, primarily Ukraine
1:40:54
saying most are shot down, but those that got through hit power
1:40:58
stations across Ukraine. Also today Ukrainian officials
1:41:01
confirming to ABC News, the US has been providing the
1:41:05
coordinates for most strikes against Russian targets with
1:41:09
those us supplied high mass rocket launchers a deeper level
1:41:12
of US involvement than previously known.
1:41:15
That might answer some of our question.
1:41:18
If there you have people over there that are that should not
1:41:21
be over there.
1:41:21
They're painting targets in the field in the field.
1:41:26
Yeah. Or, or who knows where the primary shooting people to?
1:41:29
Yeah, well, yeah, there you go. Advisors, normally advising
1:41:33
advisors. We know that's how it works advisors. There is a
1:41:38
global shift underway and this was highlighted.
1:41:41
By the way before you continue. I would like to note, Cuomo left
1:41:45
it at that he never asked anybody anything about it. Like
1:41:49
it just it's the guy's just he's like oblivious to his own
1:41:53
observation. Anyway, I just find it peculiar, because
1:41:58
I would say that most I think many Americans certainly think
1:42:03
we're at war with Russia. That's how it's been positioned. Now
1:42:08
Heiser is right here and we're sending troops and at a certain
1:42:12
point, when does the general population usually over
1:42:16
socialized uninformed or informed see Chris Cuomo? I
1:42:21
think yeah, this would Yeah, we're fighting them we're
1:42:23
America. We're fighting aren't we and we fight so the we have a
1:42:29
change in or a shift I would say in global what is the word I'm
1:42:36
looking for? In influence influence in the region? And the
1:42:41
and things that have changed since World War Two to now and
1:42:45
of all places? What are you doing?
1:42:48
I'm sorry, I was crushing a can
1:42:50
against your head. Yeah. Okay. When this comes up on the
1:42:56
morning, Joe Show with Joe and Mika, then you know that this
1:43:00
was a message and they brought someone with them in full
1:43:03
uniform. Well, the war
1:43:05
has entered a new stage in recent weeks as dozens of tanks
1:43:09
were pledged by European allies to aid and Ukraine's defense,
1:43:14
with some already on their way. Leading the charge in that
1:43:18
effort is Poland. Late January stressed that even if other
1:43:22
countries did not want to send tanks, Poland would. Joining us
1:43:27
now Polish chief of defense General Ray and J Chuck and it
1:43:31
is really good to have you on board Poland has stepped up
1:43:35
immediately with no debate in so many ways. Tell us about your
1:43:39
visit here and your message to America and other partnering
1:43:43
nations in the aid of Ukraine.
1:43:46
Very good morning. Ukraine is absolutely extremely important
1:43:50
for Poland is this is
1:43:51
the chief the defense the Chief of Defence of Poland is on the
1:43:55
Morning Joe Show in full uniform as now the new center of power
1:44:01
or the balance has shifted towards Poland
1:44:04
very good morning. Ukraine is absolutely extremely important
1:44:08
for Poland is extremely important for reason with global
1:44:11
implications some very very first day we started our support
1:44:14
many domains starting from the human approach observing eight
1:44:19
millions Ukrainians crossing the border a few million still
1:44:24
staying in Poland then we started up social programs
1:44:28
medical programs education for them and he admitted the we
1:44:32
started
1:44:32
preparation for one thing I can barely understand him because if
1:44:37
the audio is so bad, he's not on set.
1:44:40
He's on set he's on set with his
1:44:43
sounds like he's coming over a phone or something. Do you have
1:44:46
a mic funny?
1:44:47
I can hear him it got it got a low A lot of low end in his
1:44:51
microphone. I don't know why which Okay, they'll have someone
1:44:54
else coming just Just bear with
1:44:56
it is worth it. And she admitted the we started preparation
1:45:00
They're sending equipment, ammunition and anything they
1:45:02
need for, for, for victory,
1:45:05
perfect. Since the
1:45:08
war began Poland, the center of gravity
1:45:11
of NATO and the EU that's the word I was looking for the
1:45:15
center of gravity of NATO.
1:45:18
Since the war began Poland, the center of gravity of NATO and of
1:45:24
the EU seems to have moved east and Poland basically Poland has
1:45:31
been this is an increasingly incredibly important country.
1:45:35
Now how is that going down in Poland, how our poles reacting
1:45:41
to their new central place status in Europe that well,
1:45:45
it's you can feel an every single, single day now the
1:45:49
central gravity from a historical Cold War time design
1:45:52
moved from Germany, to Poland to Warsaw, and geo strategy
1:45:57
matters. And also geography matters and our aspirations for
1:46:01
the Western civilization as well.
1:46:04
The center of gravity moved towards Poland, there's
1:46:07
messaging in here that we don't yet understand.
1:46:10
Well, he specifically said Germany didn't he from Germany
1:46:13
from Yes, from Yes, from Germany. Did you say Eastern
1:46:18
Germany?
1:46:19
No, he just said Germany
1:46:21
every single single day now the center of gravity from a
1:46:24
historical Cold War time design moved from Germany to Poland to
1:46:28
work
1:46:29
from historical Cold War designed from Germany to Poland.
1:46:33
Which is by the way more westward.
1:46:39
A curiously says but still
1:46:41
this messaging here that we're just not picking up on yet, but
1:46:44
there's something about this. We heard it, we heard it, but we
1:46:48
don't get it yet. Maybe we should we have
1:46:51
been discussing over the last two or three months how Germany
1:46:55
has been cut out of the picture, trade and how they want to do
1:46:59
one thing or another. And we also discussed the fact that
1:47:01
that little Yes, yes. Be your pooch that tried to take place
1:47:05
to beer hall pooch. Find that nut ball German guy who says
1:47:11
he's trying to get around the fact that Americans are being
1:47:13
too influential in German politics and we're running into
1:47:16
place the prince, the prince, that sort of thing. Something's
1:47:21
up with their Grilli. The Germans aren't going to put up
1:47:23
with this for long
1:47:24
for the Germans that they have nothing but idiots in their
1:47:27
Cabinet who are one by one resigning or making weird moves
1:47:33
to Germany is I think Germany already has fallen. The military
1:47:40
stuff is unmaintained it's crap. Hear that they they got rid of
1:47:46
the woman by blaming her for wearing high heels and saying
1:47:52
inappropriate things like wars, good. Whatever she was doing.
1:47:56
None of this. You're right is definitely a neutering of
1:48:02
Deutschland. That's that is but what do you have left if you
1:48:08
neutered? Deutschland
1:48:09
you can lead Poland run thanks. I mean it's what's interesting
1:48:13
in this whole thing is that Hungary which seems to be the
1:48:16
best managed of all these countries, is just shuts up
1:48:19
about the whole deal there back then we can we like are getting
1:48:24
it now. You got to do your own thing. It's good. It's great.
1:48:28
There was it? Yes. It's weird. What's what we're observing is
1:48:33
not easy to understand from our perspective. And we probably
1:48:37
have as much. I think I don't know how anyone else could get
1:48:41
any better than we are. In terms of analysis,
1:48:46
but I'll give you one that we have figured out. This came from
1:48:49
Deutsche Avella.
1:48:51
On Wednesday, Elon Musk's company SpaceX said that it is
1:48:54
curbing use of its Starlink satellite communication service
1:48:58
by the Ukrainian military apparently, Ukraine's use of
1:49:02
Starlink. To guide drone attacks against Russian forces is a no
1:49:06
go. The question is why now? SpaceX sent 1000s of Starlink
1:49:11
terminals to Ukraine last year to provide internet
1:49:14
communication now the company is saying that Starlink was, quote,
1:49:18
never meant to be weaponized, and it's taken steps to limit
1:49:21
its use with drones. Starlink relies on a network of
1:49:26
satellites in low orbit around the Earth to provide wireless
1:49:29
communication for the Ukrainian government, and Keith has
1:49:35
condemned the decision by space eggs, accusing the company of
1:49:38
ignoring Ukraine's right to self defense. All right, so
1:49:41
this story is is true but not for the reasons they imply. Ilan
1:49:48
is saying hey Starlink is not intended for military use.
1:49:56
Because you need Star Shield They have the entire Starlink
1:50:03
system rebranded as Star Shield, and you need to pay Star Shield
1:50:08
for your military use, which is much more expensive. You're
1:50:12
trying to get a free deal off of Starlink, which is for
1:50:15
consumers. They this was always a military system. And now, now,
1:50:24
now, Space X, I guess, is is repositioning, excuse me, excuse
1:50:29
me, we need to make money off of this to military industrial
1:50:32
complex. So star shields, what they want their rightful action,
1:50:39
which is what this whole thing was funded for in the first
1:50:41
place. It's always been for military, you can't make
1:50:45
something like that pay off with 100 bucks a month for people
1:50:48
with RVs. No, you can't make that thing.
1:50:51
That person loss leader, you're
1:50:53
you're sending 10s of 1000s of satellites into low orbit. And
1:50:57
you think that a couple of Yahoo's with RVs and people who
1:51:00
can afford $110 a month for internet that's going to pay it
1:51:05
back? No. And he beat him he beat Google. He beat all those
1:51:09
companies. He beat Jeff Bezos know, Bezos is dumb enough to
1:51:15
think that he can sell it to consumers. And maybe he will Did
1:51:20
you see that they're now your pharmacy? Amazon. They've never
1:51:25
been my pharmacy. Oh man, they so you can now order all your
1:51:31
prescriptions drugs via Amazon. And I mean everything and then
1:51:36
in typical Amazon fashion, you go okay, let me get some Prozac.
1:51:40
Prozac $500 a month if you get the generic a month supply $3.99
1:51:52
Yeah, now you're talking Yeah.
1:51:56
Price and best price and you know this this was supposed to
1:52:00
be what? What's this face? The Mavericks guy come on. Come on,
1:52:08
sir. For No, no matter the basketball team. What's his
1:52:13
name? Oh, boy, Shark Tank Man, Shark Tank boy, Mark Cuban,
1:52:18
Cuban. He was he was going to do the cheap alternative pharmacy
1:52:22
and he just got priced right out. 399 for a month's supply of
1:52:27
Prozac. Generic, are you kidding me? This is a bonanza is and
1:52:34
what I was reading the other day I was reading here it is.
1:52:38
Psychologists may soon gain the authority to write prescriptions
1:52:42
under a new legislative proposal. How about that your
1:52:47
psychologist? That's
1:52:48
Dad that that if I was a psychiatrist, no psychiatrist,
1:52:52
psychologist, psychologist. I know. I said if I was a
1:52:55
psychiatrist, I would make the biggest stink in the world about
1:52:58
this. Yeah, well,
1:53:00
we'll see. And this is this is so that the telemedicine
1:53:06
psychologist is usually some with a master's degree. And, you
1:53:09
know, my sister, she, my
1:53:11
sister, my sister Willow can write me a Prozac subscription
1:53:16
prescription. So we have Amazon it's a subscription. Yes, always
1:53:21
a subscription. Typically, a psychiatrist prescribes
1:53:24
prescribes medication but is not involved in providing talk or
1:53:28
other types of therapy. This is the better help now.com lobby
1:53:34
betterhelp.com I think is the name with the the outfit where
1:53:38
you can talk to a site, you know, they match you with a
1:53:40
psychologist ello Yes. And you can talk to them and you know,
1:53:46
and you you don't have to show your face it doesn't have to be
1:53:49
on video can just be on a phone call and then they're going to
1:53:52
start prescribing you drugs. This is it. This is how the
1:53:56
Democrat party wins.
1:53:58
Yeah, he didn't win all doped up by not
1:54:01
either party benefits from this by the way, everyone becomes so
1:54:05
incredibly susceptible. It's great. It's great. Man, the
1:54:11
drugs in this country. Any drugs you want to look up any? Any
1:54:17
particular drug you need? Do you take any medication?
1:54:22
I can think of a few things you know, buy Adderall be good from
1:54:26
Adderall.
1:54:27
Let's see for good. I can imagine you on Adderall. That
1:54:31
would be that'd be hilarious. Alright, let's see.
1:54:38
Let's see Adderall. Okay. Oh, this is interesting. They have,
1:54:46
so there's Adderall. 4999 for a 60 count pack of one. Then
1:54:54
there's natural XR with an N 2999. For a four Oh, that's for
1:55:01
all okay, that's a 30 car. So it looks like your Adderall. You
1:55:04
can be good for around around 49 bucks from Amazon maybe
1:55:09
available on Amazon Prime. I mean, that's going to put a lot
1:55:13
of kids out of the business and College of selling there to find
1:55:17
something else to do. So while we're still in the Ukraine, this
1:55:21
whole thing I want to get this clip out of the way because this
1:55:23
wasn't played much over here. I get it from China. China
1:55:28
official China, yeah. This Ukraine, Russia, they're gonna
1:55:31
do something about these reactors. They don't want
1:55:33
somebody bombing them by accident.
1:55:35
Russia says is ready to work with the International Atomic
1:55:38
Energy Agency to create a safety zone around this upper Russia
1:55:42
nuclear power plant. Russian officials and the International
1:55:46
Atomic Energy Agency held a new round of consultations on
1:55:50
cooperation in ensuring safety. The head of the nuclear
1:55:53
facilities operator said Russia is providing comfortable social
1:55:57
and living conditions for staff members and their families.
1:56:01
Of course, they don't want that they're protecting it. They
1:56:02
don't want to blow that up.
1:56:06
But they don't want the Ukrainians blowing it up and
1:56:08
blaming them.
1:56:10
They know it they don't want to blow up at all. They just need
1:56:13
to keep it because when this is all over the power needs to be
1:56:16
in the region. I don't Is it actually still connected? Is it
1:56:19
hooked up? Is it running? Do we know that
1:56:20
they don't say? No. I think it is. So
1:56:27
because all we hear is how power is off in Ukraine.
1:56:32
They keep blowing up those substations Yeah, with the
1:56:36
missiles that they supposedly block. There was a big artery
1:56:39
Patriot batteries that we have
1:56:42
big article in the Dutch newspapers about the Dutch
1:56:46
detainees in jail. People who are prisoners, and as we know,
1:56:53
everywhere, prisoners are slaves, they perform slave
1:56:56
services. You know, the, the old joke of their, you know, they
1:57:00
make license plates while true. out it's like Ikea contract
1:57:05
directly with the correctional Corrections Corporation of
1:57:08
America as an example for them to make tables,
1:57:11
and hex wrenches.
1:57:14
Many hex wrenches, but now the so they interviewed some of
1:57:18
these prisoners. They're really they're happy and proud because
1:57:21
now they're making wood burning stoves for Ukrainians.
1:57:26
Yeah, I'm happy to be in jail making wood burning stoves.
1:57:29
Yeah.
1:57:30
At least I'm doing it for for a good purpose and not just for
1:57:33
corporations. I'm gonna feel good peace. And boy did it. I
1:57:40
think we can wrap this as Lenski wrap this up with this Lensky,
1:57:44
who has now a statement of incredible and impeccable
1:57:48
standing. And this is from Sky News. He was the first one the
1:57:52
first one to call in,
1:57:54
you know, just looking at Twitter, just seeing President
1:57:57
Zelensky has just been tweeting. I extend my condolences to the
1:58:01
president overwhelm the people of Turkey and the families of
1:58:05
those who lost their lives in the earthquake in and wish a
1:58:09
speedy recovery to all the injured. We stand with the
1:58:12
people in this difficult time. We are ready to provide the
1:58:15
necessary assistance to overcome the consequences of this
1:58:19
disaster. That's the latest that we're hearing from President
1:58:24
Solinsky. And I'm sure other leaders, other world leaders
1:58:26
will begin to rally around very quickly.
1:58:29
No, yes, she's such humanitarian. took time out who
1:58:33
is busy day
1:58:34
is the go to guy.
1:58:37
He is the go to guy.
1:58:39
So I noticed in that report that they pronounced Turkey instead
1:58:42
of Turkey. Yeah. And I've decided I'm going to start
1:58:46
pronouncing and spelling it correctly now because we do it
1:58:49
with Deutschland. Yeah. And it's Turkey,
1:58:52
Turkey. Turkey. Turkey I thought was turkey.
1:58:56
Well, you can do it heads toward Turkey. Turkey. Yeah,
1:59:00
I'm gonna use the European pronunciation which would be
1:59:03
turkey. Yeah.
1:59:05
Well, whatever it is, I've noticed that Al Jazeera is
1:59:09
pronouncing it correctly and I have a report I think they
1:59:11
pronounced it in here. And she GTV is pronouncing it correctly.
1:59:17
And also Tian the Chinese are pronouncing it correctly and is
1:59:21
different is there's a distinct separation now who's pronouncing
1:59:26
it correctly and who's not and people are very slowly moving
1:59:29
over to the correct pronunciation and spelling which
1:59:32
is t t URKIYE.
1:59:35
But when you say correct I mean does that mean that key is
1:59:39
correct. Since that is the official way they may have
1:59:44
gotten me in a corner now. Yes, because you can't make jokes
1:59:47
about key and an ordering a chicken Kyiv
1:59:51
might have chicken key chicken pronouncing it keep just because
1:59:57
this but this is just the turkey up or on And I already screwed
2:00:01
it up Turkey update from Al Jazeera and you can hear the
2:00:05
correct pronunciation within this report six days
2:00:07
off the two devastating earthquakes hit Turkey and
2:00:10
Syria, rescuing any more survivors and the rubble are
2:00:14
beginning to fade on a visit to the epicenter of one of the
2:00:16
quakes. The UN a chief Martin Griffiths said it was the worst
2:00:20
event to hit the region for 100 years. Wretched typo, two steps
2:00:25
will be taken to rebuild broken cities within weeks. He's denied
2:00:29
accusations that building codes were not properly enforced.
2:00:32
Meanwhile, 10s of 1000s are without shelter across Turkey
2:00:35
and Syria. And many are sleeping out in the cold turkey state
2:00:39
media report. 48 people have been arrested for looting. In
2:00:43
total, more than 29,000 people are now known to have died for
2:00:47
them. 24,000 of those are in Turkey, and more than four and a
2:00:50
half 1000 In Syria, but that figure is expected to rise
2:00:54
now. Tell is the because it was northwestern Syria. Isn't that
2:00:59
where the where the beautiful the like the vacation spot is in
2:01:02
Syria?
2:01:04
I don't know that for a fact. It doesn't
2:01:07
want to say Idlib have to take a look. But 24 25,000 people did
2:01:14
that. That's 2929 Well, what it however
2:01:17
the county that? Well, I do have to if you want to before we take
2:01:23
our break, I do have two more clips about Turkey. Yeah, sure.
2:01:28
And it's about the building codes, which is not being
2:01:30
covered here. But I brought it up on a show previous show which
2:01:32
is there's a building code problem in some of these
2:01:36
earthquake areas. They're not building these buildings
2:01:38
correctly. They they have earthquakes of this magnitude
2:01:40
elsewhere. And the whole place doesn't fall apart and building
2:01:43
them sit there for one minute and you get the filament
2:01:46
collapsing completely pancaking Did you Did you Did you see
2:01:49
any of the number three do you see any of the aerial footage of
2:01:54
the the but the rip in the earth? It's like biblical
2:02:02
proportions. This thing is like holy
2:02:04
crap, a biblical area. So let's listen to this dude. I got two
2:02:08
clips. This is the turret quake. Building codes. Arrest this is
2:02:14
from Al Jazeera. Again.
2:02:15
Tucker's police have detained 12 People have a collapse buildings
2:02:18
in the southeastern provinces of Gaziantep and Sankofa. Those
2:02:22
taken into custody included building contractors, as a big
2:02:26
as more now from Istanbul.
2:02:27
Now we're hearing around 12 People have been detained the
2:02:31
construction of these buildings and two of those here in
2:02:34
Istanbul. Now one of those individuals magma Josh Cohen, he
2:02:37
is responsible for the construction of a 12 storey
2:02:40
building in Pattaya, which had around 250 apartments and that
2:02:44
building came down during the earthquake. Now he was detained
2:02:47
at Istanbul airport he was getting ready to leave for
2:02:49
Montenegro has some cash on him, which was confiscated by
2:02:53
authorities. Now in his indictment, which has been
2:02:55
leaked to the media. Here. He says that his buildings follow
2:02:59
the regulations that he doesn't know why the building came down.
2:03:02
He has other buildings that are still standing, and that he had
2:03:05
followed those regulations. But the public prosecutor has also
2:03:09
put out detention orders and 29 other individuals surrounding
2:03:13
the construction of buildings now questions are being asked of
2:03:16
the government. I've been asked of the government hear around
2:03:19
those building regulations and the standards of construction.
2:03:22
Now back in 2018, there was an amnesty around those building
2:03:26
regulations. In some cases, people just paid a fine and
2:03:29
experts had warned about those standards in the event of an
2:03:34
earthquake. Now those questions continue to remain in the
2:03:37
government denied that building regulations were ignored. But
2:03:41
this question will continue to remain as the weeks and months
2:03:45
go on.
2:03:46
Yeah, I mean, I you see the videos like yeah, man that that
2:03:51
the pancaking is actually is actually really annoying. I
2:03:56
mean, yeah, you've you've seen earthquake, earthquakes. It's
2:03:59
rarely a straight down pancaking. No, usually
2:04:02
the thing tips over it's over. Yeah. So here's part two of this
2:04:07
building codes, clips, and this is again not being carried Yeah,
2:04:10
this is important because at least the Turks know there's
2:04:14
liability issues here but then it they don't know how deep it
2:04:17
goes. But people should be aware of the fact that there are
2:04:20
building codes in earthquake zones in the United States. We
2:04:24
have them in California. And and there's inspections that are
2:04:28
inspectors involved, there are governments involved this is a
2:04:31
lot of involvement here on this is going to shake out is going
2:04:35
to end up with a lot of people in jail. Part two,
2:04:39
when Alia we spoke to Sony Azar, a professor at Kadir Has
2:04:42
university he says investigating building contractors could
2:04:45
unveil a much larger chain of violations.
2:04:48
Obviously, these contractors I mean, first of all, they're
2:04:52
innocent until proven guilty, but they may have not followed
2:04:58
the regulations to do that. err, and that will be their
2:05:01
responsibility, but they are not the only ones who would be
2:05:04
responsible, if such is the case, because they are those who
2:05:08
approved those plans. They are those who supposed to inspect
2:05:11
those plans. Those are there are people who give them the permits
2:05:15
are also co conspirators, if you will, should this be proven to
2:05:21
be correct that they have not followed to the, to the letter,
2:05:24
the regulation that exists, building codes or our tender
2:05:29
codes have changed over 150 times in the past 20 years with
2:05:34
there had been quite a number of amnesties. And, of course, all
2:05:40
that made cheating actually a very valuable thing, because
2:05:45
then you make a lot of money, you don't follow the code, and
2:05:48
then you actually pay a little penalty, perhaps, and then you
2:05:50
get away. You get away with it. And right now you get away with
2:05:54
murder literally. Well,
2:05:57
yeah, that's unfortunate.
2:06:03
Yeah, it's very unfortunate, especially for these pancake
2:06:06
buildings.
2:06:07
Wow. I mean, there's there's a million people homeless. There's
2:06:12
children, they don't even know the children's name.
2:06:16
It's a mess.
2:06:18
Yeah, that's one way of looking at it. I think I have one, one
2:06:25
thing here and then we can take our break. I thought I had one.
2:06:30
Yeah, this is a general report from CBS weekend,
2:06:33
they painstakingly pick through the rubble, desperately
2:06:36
searching for survivors, then their worst fear.
2:06:48
One emergency worker was moderately injured, the rest
2:06:51
unharmed, unimaginable luck. In a place was so little. In hard
2:06:57
hit a Donna, babies and small children received treatment at a
2:07:00
hospital in the southeastern city. Most were plucked from the
2:07:04
ruins by rescue workers, but lost in the chaos were their
2:07:08
names with no one yet to claim them. The fear now is the
2:07:11
earthquake has robbed these babies of their parents, and
2:07:14
quite possibly their identities to do this talks about, we know
2:07:19
what area she was founded and how she got here. Dr. Caslen
2:07:22
says but don't have any address. For other survivors. They grieve
2:07:28
for those they've lost wherever they've been buried. As more and
2:07:32
more fresh graves are dug up in anticipation of mass burials.
2:07:36
The scale of Monday 7.8 magnitude quake, and its many
2:07:40
aftershocks continue to defy comprehension. So to do the
2:07:44
numbers, at least 6000 buildings have collapsed 900,000 People
2:07:50
need urgent shelter, and around 5 million have been displaced
2:07:53
from their homes. Aid has come in from 45 countries including
2:07:58
the US, but for badly hit Syria, just two convoys have made it
2:08:02
into Northwestern in that province. The last remaining
2:08:05
rebel held territory in a country deeply scarred by over a
2:08:09
decade of civil war. It's a grinding complex secure Musa was
2:08:14
born into he was found after four days trapped under the
2:08:17
rubble in the southern town of generis in his short life, Musa
2:08:21
has survived more and now this earthquake, but with so little
2:08:24
help on the way, it's hard to know what future if any, he has.
2:08:30
Wow.
2:08:33
So not to be ghoulish about it. But we do have to look now at
2:08:38
you know, geopolitically, what does this what does this mean?
2:08:44
So the pipelines I think are destroyed the which had Russian
2:08:48
gas oil, not gas Erawan someone needs to come in and start
2:08:55
helping rebuilding Erawan we'll probably have to start making
2:09:00
some concessions. The lira is already overinflated, and it's,
2:09:04
you know, pretty much worthless from where, you know, 90% down
2:09:08
from its value a couple of years back. He's He's holding back the
2:09:13
entrant entrance of Finland and Sweden into the into NATO. So
2:09:18
he, I mean, it's it's just a bad coincidence. This is happening
2:09:24
right now when he had a very strong position. And now he has
2:09:28
almost no position unless he wants to come across as a
2:09:30
horrible person. And a Diana Saso, aka who was a Turkish
2:09:37
senator, or is a turkey a US senator.
2:09:42
They still say Turkish the Turkish. She claimed
2:09:45
in her speech which I have seen in the translation sounded
2:09:48
right. She says this earthquake was directed so just want to put
2:09:52
that out there she may be she may be a nutjob. Oh, wait a
2:09:54
minute. Breaking breaking breaking breaking. We got a
2:09:57
breaking report here. From the keeper apparently another object
2:10:03
has been spotted over Lake Huron. It has been shut down
2:10:07
according to Twitter so another object while we're live fourth
2:10:15
balloons, I mean it's right over Chicago. Well, we're under
2:10:20
attack jazz
2:10:20
Lake Michigan Lake Huron is really in Connect Canadia okay,
2:10:24
but we're
2:10:25
under attack. This is Mars Attacks. This is rolling
2:10:30
with the worst ever.
2:10:31
I love that movie. Favorite movie. What wasn't a song yet to
2:10:36
play was What song was it? They played that made their heads
2:10:39
explode? I forgot. Yeah. Oh man. Well with that I'd like to thank

2:11:56
let's see how many Well well well 2268 I'd say that's pretty
2:12:09
good.
2:12:09
That's a reasonable number that's pretty average. It was
2:12:12
about the same I think it was 23 last Sunday but the down I
2:12:16
thought it'd be a lot less because I thought maybe some of
2:12:19
these trolls but I guess not would be watching pre Super Bowl
2:12:23
stuff which is going to
2:12:26
me know that. Well. They should they could be and we may have
2:12:29
had more at the beginning of the show. But once we gave our tips
2:12:35
are who's going to win
2:12:37
the predictions?
2:12:38
Okay, predictions. They're out there. They're calm. They're
2:12:41
bookies. They got other things for
2:12:43
Colin, do you think that anyone in the troll room those guys
2:12:48
have bookies?
2:12:51
I wouldn't put it past them. They are trolls. Some of them
2:12:54
may be bookies. No, so
2:12:56
that's always possible.
2:12:59
Big thanks to correct to record who brought us the artwork for
2:13:02
episode 1528. We titled that one habitat, which was thanks to Amy
2:13:07
Goodmans a pronunciation of habitat. All caps is people
2:13:14
didn't say much about the title but they love the artwork. Which
2:13:18
was Fred cruise. Yeah. It was a TED for Ted Flintstone. It was
2:13:26
Fred Flintstone. Only now Fred cruise clearly in in bedrock if
2:13:32
you haven't seen it, it's such a great piece. And we looked at a
2:13:36
number a number of pieces that were available to us and you can
2:13:39
check that out for yourself at no agenda art generator.com Go
2:13:43
look at what the artists are putting in there. They're doing
2:13:45
that in real time while they're listening to us. And, and we
2:13:51
choose from it right after the show right after we're done. We
2:13:53
try not to make it the same as the title of the show, but we do
2:13:56
choose the art first. And let's see what we had we had another
2:14:00
one you'd like right off the bat. Was Microsoft barf by
2:14:04
Thomson Neal, which was a nice piece no agenda with the with
2:14:09
the squares, which represented Microsoft, although it was
2:14:12
Google. But the second we probably said that wrong. But
2:14:15
then having Clippy there was pretty obscure. And also the the
2:14:20
text was so small that it had you know, that just doesn't work
2:14:25
on these. This is the bottom of the first page right now. Bottom
2:14:31
Right. All the way at the bottom.
2:14:35
I'm going I'm going
2:14:36
yes grow.
2:14:37
Are you though? Yeah, I did like that piece told you. It did have
2:14:42
and Clippy is the originator of this whole thing. That's just
2:14:45
how far it's gonna get. By the way, Clippy was an annoying
2:14:49
Clippy. Well, Microsoft Bob was the was before Clippy wasn't he?
2:14:54
I think Clippy I think they came in. This was the moment that
2:14:58
they thought this was a good idea. They also did Little Dog
2:15:00
remember the little a dog and said you'd have a dog?
2:15:03
Oh, yeah, I do remember the little dog. What was it the
2:15:06
wagons tail
2:15:07
and ask your questions. You sure you want to do it that way?
2:15:10
Hey, hey, don't forget about me. Zippy. Yeah, zippy. We know.
2:15:16
So Clippy was annoying and the dog was annoying and Microsoft
2:15:20
Bob, which I was very I liked Microsoft Bob as a children's
2:15:26
our operating system to get kids involved in computers because my
2:15:29
son at the time Yeah, JC was, was killed Jr. I think he was
2:15:36
like seven at a time or when this thing when the maestro Bob
2:15:40
came out, I'd have to open up the bogey pace and get the exact
2:15:43
dates. But he was jacked up about it. He was using his
2:15:47
machine all the time. He developed a bunch of software
2:15:50
that worked within the Microsoft Bob environment, but they kept
2:15:54
trying to sell it to adults
2:15:57
was there then it was around the same time we had the Microsoft
2:16:01
comic chat. I think that came later. Okay, that came well
2:16:06
then. But they've
2:16:07
had this idea they they think adults or adults, or adults,
2:16:12
adults, but Microsoft, Bob was, was a cool product when I mean
2:16:18
when JC showed it to me and he showed me all the intricacies of
2:16:21
it. And as a kid, it was like wow, yeah, that's pretty cool.
2:16:25
And I was a big fan of Microsoft but not for not to replace
2:16:29
windows. I'm mean, what are they thinking? And they wouldn't they
2:16:33
would never promote it to kids as a kid operating system is
2:16:38
just wouldn't deal with it. Well, at
2:16:39
least that kind of work. I mean, Cortana which I never understood
2:16:42
as a brand name,
2:16:44
which is which, of course after a small Toyota
2:16:47
Cortana is the first thing you need to disable on your windows
2:16:50
because it sucks up resources to versus
2:16:54
getting rid of it. Yeah.
2:16:57
More artwork we looked at was let's see we had explosive new
2:17:02
details bombshell bombshell was still a lot of balloon stuff. I
2:17:06
kind of liked Taunton needles hanging up the Adidas with the
2:17:11
two Adidas sneakers hanging off the g of agenda which I liked it
2:17:17
because it was clean but it really nothing paled in
2:17:20
comparison to or everything paled in comparison to to Fred
2:17:25
crews I mean and that was my Miss misstating his name and it
2:17:30
just and that is his name now by the way is Fred crews from Fred
2:17:34
forevermore just like it's Janet Yeltsin the Yeltsin this is this
2:17:39
is what we do on the show. Yeltsin so yeah, I mean, it was
2:17:45
just pretty clear. What else was there? And we had I like,
2:17:51
Let's go Brandon, you can't to kneel to but that was never
2:17:55
gonna get picked. No,
2:17:57
you have. Do you have a buzzer on your microphone today? By the
2:17:59
way? No. Shouldn't be let me hear something Oh, my God, I can
2:18:04
hear sounds like something in the background. No. So the
2:18:07
horse, the horse, the horse. Horse is not going to make
2:18:12
artwork though.
2:18:13
No, it's not going to be comic strip bloggers, horrors were
2:18:15
quite good.
2:18:16
Yeah, he's while he's in Poland. That's where all the good whores
2:18:18
are hookers in Kenya, they're
2:18:20
all in Ukraine.
2:18:22
They really knocked me out. Thank you very much to all of
2:18:25
our artists for participating. We already we see that you
2:18:27
already have put up a lot of things in anticipation of what
2:18:30
we will like or what topics we will be discussing, or topics we
2:18:34
have discussed this is you can watch this in real time. No
2:18:37
agenda, art generator.com. or, indeed, we publish a lot of
2:18:41
these pieces of art in chapters if you get one of those modern
2:18:44
podcast apps, and why aren't you already using one. And so you
2:18:48
can see all of this. It's a lot. It's beautiful work. And we're
2:18:51
so so happy that we have our artists to do this because it
2:18:54
truly is value for value. They like the value that we give them
2:18:59
through doing the program itself. And they return that as
2:19:02
best they can. And even if we don't use it, it's value to us
2:19:05
just just for doing it. And we appreciate that. No agenda art
2:19:09
generator.com. Now, you can also check us out at our our social
2:19:15
network, which is a mastodon instance, no agenda social.com.
2:19:19
A couple things I want to mention about it today. We have
2:19:21
limited number of spots. So we try to keep it around 10,000 The
2:19:24
number of people that are in there, we're blocked by hundreds
2:19:29
if not close to 1000 Mastodon instances who just hate our free
2:19:34
speech policy, freeze peach, by the way. And we have a few
2:19:39
policies ourselves. I'd like to mention one specifically. If you
2:19:44
have something to say posted publicly, this is not intended
2:19:48
to be a DM network. And I get this a lot in people and I have
2:19:54
to have to look at every posting now to make sure it's not a DM
2:19:57
if you want this is for public discourse for Congress. sation
2:20:01
and then there's this other thing. There's a there's a a
2:20:05
style of question that I'm that I'm very irked about. You may
2:20:09
have seen this, and it goes like this. Why haven't you spoken at
2:20:14
all about Julian Assange? I find that interesting.
2:20:21
It's actually the second part of it that makes it fun. Yes, yes.
2:20:25
Yeah, I find Hmm.
2:20:28
Now, you haven't spoken about that, why? And I wanted to
2:20:32
remind everybody of our mission statement, we deconstruct media,
2:20:36
if the media is not talking about it, and we search pretty
2:20:39
far and wide to find media that talks about topics. It's hard
2:20:43
for us to deconstruct the media. But yet people then make this
2:20:49
and it irks me, and I know, I shouldn't get that. And
2:20:52
we're not here to get Julian out. I mean, that should have
2:20:56
been just to actually get into the politics of it. Yeah. That
2:21:00
should have been done by Trump. Yeah.
2:21:03
But you know, it's like you you've never talked about it
2:21:06
ever. So no, we bring we mentioned it all the time. In
2:21:08
fact, you know, we've met Julian, and you'll say, you'll
2:21:11
say yeah, but meanwhile, Julian Assange just rotting away.
2:21:14
You'll say that many times.
2:21:15
I mentioned him and Martha Stewart, in
2:21:18
the same breath, which is, which by itself is a problem. Anyway,
2:21:24
we deconstruct media, we do the best we can we try to help you
2:21:28
navigate your way through this amygdala altering world of
2:21:32
bullcrap, also known as news, which is not and they're all
2:21:37
a&r, everyone, they're all they're all doing it. They're
2:21:40
all worldwide. Yeah. All right. All right, let's thank our
2:21:44
executive and Associate Executive Producers first and
2:21:47
foremost, who knows, we'll get we'll get the title. It's a
2:21:50
forever title for that for supporting us at 200 or $300
2:21:55
Subsequently, and we'll go take it all the way through our other
2:21:58
producers up until $50. Because it's you know, January was light
2:22:03
and we're still in the late days of of January now being February
2:22:08
and I don't know I mean, maybe this is just the new normal. We
2:22:12
believe we're still providing good value. We hope you feel
2:22:16
that way as well. So please consider supporting the show so
2:22:20
