curry
0:23
John C Dvorak: from Northern Silicon Valley where the
0:25
atmospheric river is back. I'm Jesse Devorah.
0:33
Adam Curry: Wait a minute. I didn't get any news reports
0:36
about that. Are you are you drowning again? Over there?
0:38
John C Dvorak: Supposedly this afternoon? Oh, so
0:41
Adam Curry: it hasn't happened yet.
0:45
John C Dvorak: Supposedly this afternoon, we're gonna get four
0:47
inches.
0:50
Adam Curry: Wow, that's a lot. That's a lot for California.
0:52
John C Dvorak: You could get anything. It's always bull crap.
0:55
Oh, you mean
0:56
Adam Curry: mean? Well, how about LA? It's always fun when
1:00
they gets a four inches. Well, they
1:02
John C Dvorak: Yeah. washes out to see much don't even bother
1:07
with cisterns or reservoirs or anything. They just tell it.
1:11
Yeah. Did they bitch? Yeah. I think it's time that we all
1:15
decided that let's give up on this specially in California on
1:19
this problem with the homeless and just give developers some
1:24
land and let developers let the shanty towns crop up. Usually
1:29
outside the airports a good place.
1:32
Adam Curry: Where's this coming from? Well, how did we get how
1:33
do we get from, from the atmospheric river to the
1:36
homeless favelas,
1:37
John C Dvorak: because he's this river is going to knock these
1:40
homeless tents down.
1:42
Unknown: You're the worst.
1:44
John C Dvorak: You're the worst. May the worst?
1:47
Adam Curry: You won't be one people who are unhoused to drown
1:51
and be washed out to sea.
1:53
John C Dvorak: No, I don't want him to die. That's what I'm
1:54
saying. That's where we have to give him some land. Create a
1:58
shanty town usually outside the airports a good place because
2:01
nobody ever wants to be in the you know where the airport is?
2:04
Oh, of course. So give me you know, surround the airport with
2:07
shanty towns in California. Let them build their own thing.
2:11
They're very real. A lot of them are architects out of business.
2:14
You know, unemployed architects they can they can help.
2:18
Unknown: I'm sure. I'm sure they are.
2:22
Adam Curry: Speaking of homeless, Tina and I went to
2:25
Austin last night to East Sixth Street, also known as dirty six.
2:29
And we're stepping over homeless people on a two block walk from
2:34
the parking garage to Joe Rogan's comedy mothership, his
2:40
new club that he just opened.
2:42
John C Dvorak: Did you get comped?
2:44
Adam Curry: Did I get comped Oh my goodness. We I mean, there's
2:48
one thing I know about Joe Rogan. He likes hospitality.
2:52
John C Dvorak: So when we got a bottle of champagne, then
2:54
Adam Curry: no, no, hold on a second. We got immediately
2:57
picked up at the minute we showed up at the door, you know,
3:00
people assuring us in taking and I knew a number of the people
3:04
who work there because he is like his bodyguard team or
3:07
whatever. No, I mean, really? VIP all the way. special VIP
3:15
balcony free drinks with someone who would come and serve us the
3:19
whole time. So we weren't just sitting in the club. No, we are.
3:21
We are VIP at the top. So it's more than
3:25
John C Dvorak: just so you weren't mingling with the
3:26
peasants? Oh, no,
3:27
Adam Curry: no, no, no. In fact, there are two balconies. And I
3:30
look over to the right and guess who's sitting over there with
3:32
his wife? You'll never guess.
3:35
John C Dvorak: But give it a shot. Abbott
3:39
Adam Curry: Alex Jones.
3:41
John C Dvorak: Oh, that's cool.
3:43
Adam Curry: So we went over. We went over we said hi to him.
3:46
He's like Hey, man. Hey, don't believe half of the shit you
3:49
hear. Is it bullshit? It's not true. Alex dude is mes Okay? All
3:52
right. Yeah, but talk a lot of shit about me when you're coming
3:56
back on. His did
4:00
John C Dvorak: did Rogan do a set?
4:02
Adam Curry: Yes, he did. He closed out the whole night. We
4:05
didn't get we didn't get home until well after one o'clock.
4:08
Now because Joe probably went until 1115. And and then right
4:16
away, he we were like, Okay, well, we'll leave we walk off
4:19
the balcony. He's right there. Hey, come on. Let's go sit down
4:21
in the green room. And then they have another special bar inside
4:25
this place, which is called Mitzi Mitch these bar which is
4:30
named after Mitzi from the Comedy Store. In fact, half I
4:35
think most of the staff he took from Los Angeles brought them in
4:38
the Comedy Store staff. So these people know how to run a comedy
4:42
club and it was packed 250 people I think, in the old rich
4:46
theater. It was it was really I was very impressed, looks
4:52
amazing inside. And they woke comedy, anti woke comedy, all of
4:59
it. all heard, it was kind of interesting, a little bit down
5:02
the middle. But if you just want to feel like anybody woke or not
5:08
woke could sit in that audience because there's no cell phones
5:10
or they lock up your cell phones. So you can't be
5:15
recording anything and can't get anything out there, by the way.
5:18
So we're talking to Alex Jones. He's like, Oh, man, it's great.
5:23
Roseanne was here last night and I had her on the show this
5:25
afternoon. She's great. She lives out there in
5:26
Fredericksburg near you and she loves you. She's a big fan. Big
5:29
fan. Like what's Roseanne Barr is a big fan and lives in
5:32
Fredericksburg. Yeah. Like, well, that's interesting.
5:36
John C Dvorak: Yeah, consider we've never seen a donation from
5:39
her.
5:39
Adam Curry: Well, here's, here's what happened next. So before
5:42
the show, we're before everything starts. We're
5:44
chatting with Joe. He's giving us a little tour. And I guess
5:47
Roseanne had performed last night, which was really the
5:50
first night but it was kind of like a soft launch to get
5:53
everything figured out how everything works and staff to to
5:57
get used to stuff. And so she performed. And so we're talking
6:01
and she shuffles shuffles up to him. By the way. Roseanne Barr
6:04
is tiny. Have you ever met her? I can't say that I have no, I
6:10
would say she's not even five feet. Which it was really weird.
6:15
You know, you see, Roseanne you just think she's like 511 You
6:21
know, I don't know, it was very surprising. And so she's like,
6:25
Hey, she's talking to Joe and Joe Joe said this is Adam curry
6:30
and Tina curry. And she turns to me has no idea who I am. So, so
6:35
much for the big so much for being a big fan but here's the
6:39
embarrassing moment. So I reached out to shake her hand
6:42
and she is like you know like you like you miss grasp and
6:46
she's like shaking my my wrist. And I like try to pull back to
6:50
shake her hand she had no now this is how I shake hands. So
6:53
she takes wrists. It was embarrassing kind of you know,
6:59
she
6:59
John C Dvorak: may have had that an ailment I once had which is a
7:04
handshake a bit politicians pick it up as though it's a
7:07
tendinitis in the very bottom of your palm. Oh, the painful
7:12
Adam Curry: okay, because all I could think of as Wow,
7:15
John C Dvorak: does that mean that that's not uncommon to
7:17
catch especially if you I don't know. I got it when I was in air
7:21
pollution inspector was shaking too many hands, I guess. And
7:25
Adam Curry: taking bribes.
7:27
John C Dvorak: Passengers shaking hands is different than
7:29
taking bribes. Okay, I thought he's the other hand for that.
7:32
Adam Curry: Okay. I got it. I got it.
7:36
John C Dvorak: You want you to pick this little ailment up? It
7:38
is ridiculously painful. It takes about six months to get
7:43
rid of it.
7:44
Adam Curry: Well, anyway, I thought it was like oh, like a
7:46
Howie Mandel thing. All right. Anyway, so then she did she did
7:50
not perform and I like I look at Tina were like she had no idea
7:53
who I am she no fan. I don't even know she lives out here in
7:56
Fredericksburg. Now I have to doubt everything.
7:59
John C Dvorak: So what was it that gave you the bumpsteer?
8:02
Adam Curry: It Alex Alex Joni JONES Yeah, we had her on the
8:05
John C Dvorak: show believe everything he's saying.
8:08
Adam Curry: So then we're sitting there and you know, we
8:10
got a little table there and it would be fantastic view and
8:13
behind me all I hear is hey, who was? Oh man, who
8:26
John C Dvorak: was who? No, I'm
8:27
Adam Curry: asking you who do you think that was? Man, you're
8:32
being just you need to. Okay, back in the day when we used to
8:36
start the show. You would take the damn thing off the hook.
8:38
Now. I usually do now. That happened last show too. And I
8:43
think it never happens on Sunday. Seeing us It's a
8:46
Thursday. It happened on the last show. It did happen on the
8:50
last show.
8:50
John C Dvorak: It happened maybe on the last Thursday show. So
8:53
let's get back to the story. That phone stopped ringing
8:57
Adam Curry: So behind me the whole evening while people
9:00
aren't sad Yeah.
9:02
John C Dvorak: How many late Wait, wait how many layers
9:04
deepest the balcony to?
9:06
Adam Curry: I mean? Yeah, like we were in the front and the
9:10
person may even have been standing. I don't know if the
9:13
person had a had a seat because I didn't want to look around
9:16
like it was it'd be completely quiet in the club and the
9:19
comedian saying something and then you would say Hey, Tina can
9:24
do it better than I can. The Dick Cheney No, it was Roseanne
9:28
Barr the whole time. She was funny. The most annoying chuckle
9:35
you've ever heard. Truly, truly insane. And yeah, she
9:42
John C Dvorak: does the same chuckle on her show.
9:44
Adam Curry: Yeah, but I've never I've never it was jarring kind
9:47
of, you know, just like is one of those if I was in a movie
9:51
theater, I would have turned around said could you shut up
9:53
but I knew that it was going to be someone of some standing but
9:55
I it was all it was as annoying to me. As I when I flew phone
10:03
ringing not well no, not quite when I flew on the Concorde. Oh,
10:07
here we go and back in the, in the good old days when there was
10:12
Concorde to be handed out, and I and it was the first time I flew
10:15
on Concorde and I was from London to New York City. And
10:21
Liza Minnelli was behind me drunk.
10:27
John C Dvorak: Oh god. Yeah, yeah. But I repeat myself.
10:32
Adam Curry: So I'm sorry to say but I if you want me to prove it
10:37
to you literally I have the transcript here. The phone rang
10:40
on Sunday, just so you know it on Sunday. Yeah, the last show
10:44
1535 Eight routes?
10:47
John C Dvorak: I don't remember reading it on Sunday. Yeah. And
10:49
Adam Curry: we even talked about the robot voice and the police.
10:53
The Police Benevolent Society.
10:55
John C Dvorak: Yeah, no, I know about talking about that. But we
10:58
didn't
10:58
Adam Curry: it didn't come out of the blue. Okay, I didn't know
11:02
John C Dvorak: it came out of the our typical AI conversation.
11:06
All right, fine. So it says a transcript of the phone ring.
11:11
Adam Curry: Yeah, it's um, we're talking about the phone. I just
11:14
clicked it away. Trust me. Trust me. No. Well, trust me on this.
11:20
I'm, we have to stop the vasectomy talk. And I'm getting
11:25
too much grief.
11:28
John C Dvorak: Oh, I you know, I was gonna maybe bring it up,
11:31
which is yeah, I'm sorry that I don't find I don't think it's a
11:34
negative thing necessarily. Oh, people
11:37
Adam Curry: are like, Hey, man. Hey, man. Pump the brakes on the
11:41
on the vasectomy talk. Okay. Even my
11:45
John C Dvorak: period, I think probably half of our audience
11:47
has had a vasectomy.
11:48
Adam Curry: I think so too.
11:50
John C Dvorak: I think so.
11:52
Adam Curry: It's really bizarre here would admit my periodontist
11:56
say he said, I'm just listening to the show is great. I don't
12:00
appreciate you making fun of my vasectomy face.
12:03
John C Dvorak: Right. Oh, no, you I guess the art didn't help.
12:07
Adam Curry: So no, no. So I sent him a lot of scissor emojis. And
12:12
he says, By the way, it helps accentuate my soft skin and
12:16
plump body. So he at least got the joke. But yeah, there's I am
12:19
surprised. I think during COVID, you know, people, some it has
12:24
something to do with COVID. Because we've been talking about
12:26
vasectomy face for years and years and years. And now all of
12:30
a sudden, people are all pissed off about it. So I think that
12:33
Well, that's
12:34
John C Dvorak: interesting. You're right. We have been
12:35
talking about this for probably since the inception of the show,
12:38
maybe
12:38
Adam Curry: even Yeah, maybe. Maybe.
12:41
John C Dvorak: So why now? Well, I don't think the art helped.
12:44
Thank you, Roger. I don't think the art help.
12:47
Adam Curry: I think the art was dying. was absolutely my, my
12:50
favorite. I loved it. I loved it. It was so good.
12:54
John C Dvorak: But yeah, they were getting sensitive. I wonder
12:58
what what, there's some element or something happening. Okay,
13:02
onward with the show.
13:05
Adam Curry: Oh, this is all part of the show. All right. Well,
13:08
let's talk about how right I am. How about that. Should we do
13:10
that? I like talking about that's
13:12
John C Dvorak: what you want to talk about. But no, let's talk
13:13
about Ukraine. Okay.
13:16
Unknown: President has a lot of Messalonskee has denied that he
13:19
was involved in the destruction of the Nord Stream gas
13:22
pipelines. The undersea pipelines, which brought Russian
13:25
natural gas to Germany were blown up last September, US and
13:29
German media citing US intelligence have reported a pro
13:33
Ukrainian group may have carried out the attack. The Kremlin,
13:37
meanwhile, has dismissed the allegations as a, quote, attempt
13:40
to rig the news.
13:41
Adam Curry: So this was a very interesting little thing that
13:44
came out this new article in the Times and designed
13:48
simultaneously saying that Oh, no, no, no, no. Oh, no, no, pay
13:52
no attention to anything we've said previously, and certainly
13:55
pay no attention to Seymour Hersh. No, this was a group that
13:59
falsely rented a yacht with false passports and and they and
14:03
they blew it up. Ah,
14:07
John C Dvorak: well, luckily, French 24 actually had the guy
14:11
who did the original reporting. Yeah. On their debate show and I
14:16
took three clips off it went on for an hour. Good. But that got
14:21
you know, the Washington, New York Times took some credit in
14:24
Washington. No, they all stole this stuff from this guy. Okay.
14:28
So and it gets to the reporting all came out of Germany. Yes.
14:32
And we can this is the best rundown. This is three clips
14:35
from French 24. And one of the specials that had this guy, and
14:39
for other people that were on to do to kind of counter his
14:43
whatever he had to say, including an American woman from
14:46
the Marshall Fund, who just went on about how Russia really did
14:50
it. And it's all crap, of course. So who's this pipeline
14:53
one?
14:54
Unknown: So who did sabotage the Nord Stream pipelines without
14:58
much proof to go on? Pump could only route for the version that
15:02
suits their cause. Now, though, German investigators revealed
15:06
they have found traces of explosives aboard a yacht that
15:09
may have carried the charge that last September, knocked out the
15:14
undersea conduit that supplies Russian gas to Europe via the
15:17
Baltic Sea. It's an active investigation, Berlin warns not
15:21
to jump to hasty conclusions. We'll go over the facts and
15:24
possible motives to once and for all. Who wants it for all
15:28
severed Europe's dependency on the Kremlin for its energy was a
15:32
false flag operation by Moscow to show strength and Spike for
15:37
the suspension of those gas imports. What about the recent
15:39
claim by veteran American journalist Seymour Hersh that
15:43
gas producers Norway in the US somehow colluded? And now come
15:47
these latest revelations. According to German reports, the
15:50
yacht had been rented from a company based in Poland that is
15:53
apparently owned by two Ukrainians we say apparently
15:57
Kieve staunchly denies any part more broadly, with winter nearly
16:02
over, we'll ask how Europe's fared without that Russian gas
16:06
and what life is like without that link to Moscow today in the
16:10
France 24 debate what to make of the Nord Stream sabotage
16:13
revelations with us from Berlin. He's one of the reporters who
16:16
penned that investigative piece for German public broadcasting
16:19
and the newspaper did cite Georg Heil, investigative reporter for
16:23
television station. W. Dr. Thank you for being with us.
16:26
Adam Curry: Now we need to play some backdrop here about the
16:30
visit that the German president made to Washington.
16:35
John C Dvorak: Yes, four days before this came out. German
16:42
This is funny. German Chancellor Schultz. I see nothing.
16:51
Unknown: Shows.
16:53
Adam Curry: No, no one under 40. Maybe even 50 understands that
16:57
joke.
16:58
John C Dvorak: I'll bet you half the audience does.
17:00
Adam Curry: Oh, yeah. Well, I guess we're all old them hello?
17:04
No, I
17:04
John C Dvorak: think they're right. They're playing the
17:06
Hogan's Heroes daily on me TV, over the air. And it's been
17:12
going on for years. Now.
17:13
Adam Curry: If you if you have if you're watching Hogan's
17:16
Heroes on me TV over the air, please go throttle yourself.
17:22
There's got to be one person who does that besides you.
17:27
John C Dvorak: Terrific show, anyway. Yeah, sure. It's a
17:31
fantastic. You know, if you look at it, you'd think it was just
17:33
produced yesterday, it's one of the most advanced shows or
17:36
something's from 1966. It's got widescreen, it's got not full
17:41
Not, not 16 by nine, but it's about I think 14 by nine, it's
17:46
definitely wider than normal four by three. It's highly
17:50
produced. It's It's unbelievable how good that show is. Anyway,
17:57
you couldn't just let that slide, you know. So Schultz,
18:01
flies from Berlin, to Washington, DC to for one lone
18:07
hour, where I said blew over an hour to meet with Biden, and
18:11
then he jumps into plane and flies all the way back to
18:13
Berlin. That's a miserable flight.
18:16
Adam Curry: And but if you choose your own plane, it's a
18:18
little better than fine. But
18:21
John C Dvorak: it's like, you know, there's other things you
18:22
can do with your life and fly back and forth from Berlin to
18:24
Washington DC for one hour meeting? And what so what what
18:30
is this meeting tell us?
18:32
Adam Curry: Well, the meeting tells us like there's some
18:34
coordination, and they were afraid, I guess they're all
18:38
afraid that everything is bugged. We have no security, you
18:43
have to do it in person if you want to communicate something
18:46
really secret.
18:47
John C Dvorak: I think that's the that's the even though
18:50
that's not nobody talks about that. I think that's the point
18:53
of con condemnation for the security state. You can even
18:58
make a communication securely without having to meet in person
19:03
and whisper in each other's ear. That's pathetic.
19:09
Adam Curry: Well, as we recall, the last time there was some
19:12
conversation regarding Ukraine, it was Victoria Nuland and that
19:16
whole call got recorded in outstanding quality. That's
19:20
their famous f the EU comment as they're preparing to, to
19:25
determine who goes into the Ukrainian government in 2014. So
19:31
they're probably a bit weary about it now. But yeah, I would
19:34
be Yeah. Did they have that in the Oval? Was that where they
19:38
met?
19:39
John C Dvorak: Yes. Would they say okay,
19:42
Adam Curry: I'd think that thing is bugged to that without
19:44
John C Dvorak: without any assistance or anybody taking
19:46
notes there's which again, should be grounds for
19:48
impeachment the way things have been going, but so there's
19:52
nobody in the room except the two of them and I don't know
19:54
that I guess she'll speaks English so I guess it could ever
19:58
have a conversation. Because I know Biden doesn't speak Deutsch
20:04
Adam Curry: Biden doesn't speak English either. Are you talking?
20:07
John C Dvorak: Yeah speaking. Anyway, so we go back to this.
20:10
That was the rundown and the kind of the precursor to what
20:13
you're going to be discussing this, go to clip two, and we got
20:15
the reporter on telling you what he knows.
20:18
Unknown: It's a yacht rented under a phony identity that sets
20:22
sail and returned to the German port of Rostock, but they didn't
20:27
give the boat a good scrubbing, it seems with investigators,
20:31
Garrick, Heil, finding traces of explosives. What more do we
20:36
know?
20:36
Yeah, the act that was apparently involved or according
20:40
to the investigators is allegedly involved in this
20:44
attack was rented out from a German company, the German
20:49
company, offered the act and it was rented apparently, by a
20:53
Polish based company has just said,
20:55
Adam Curry: Oh, can we put enough apparently ease and
20:57
supposedly ease and all of this stuff into this is completely
21:00
filled with with without evidence type talk? Yeah.
21:05
Unknown: From a German company, the German company, offered the
21:09
act and it was rented apparently, by a Polish based
21:12
company, as you said, are run by two Ukrainian nationals. The Yak
21:17
supposedly left the city of Rostock on the Baltic shore on
21:22
16th, September 6, and then it was spotted in another German
21:27
Coast village called Veeck. One day after that, later on, there
21:32
was another localisations possible ex post, close to the
21:37
Danish island of Christianity, just off north northeast of Paul
21:41
Vaughn home, just on the very spot where one of the North
21:45
Stream pipelines brands, and then later on this act
21:49
supposedly was returned uncleaned to the German company.
21:54
And it was as late as January of this year that German
21:59
investigators identified the act and searched it. It was searched
22:04
on January 18th, to 20 years. So today's and they apparently
22:09
found forensic evidence on the table of the act. And today, as
22:13
you said, it was officially confirmed what we've been
22:16
reporting.
22:17
Adam Curry: Oh, it wasn't see for because I'm sure they got
22:20
that with their fake passports, too, right.
22:24
John C Dvorak: They never said the extra number of things are
22:26
left out and I listened to this thing went on for an hour,
22:28
Adam Curry: it kind of got the size of the yacht, you know,
22:31
these
22:32
John C Dvorak: type, we don't have the foot length of the
22:34
yacht, that would be nice, but it can hold six, so we have to
22:37
assume his end, you know, it's all the gear for this divers. We
22:41
don't understand where they could, how they got down and up
22:45
without having to spend a lot of time there. Because it takes
22:47
forever to get back up after your dive that deep 80 meters.
22:52
And don't know
22:53
Adam Curry: that. That's not for the inexperienced diver.
22:57
John C Dvorak: Know what this is people weren't slouches. I mean,
22:59
they, their passports are supposed to be top grade, which
23:02
makes it sound like our agency did this, which is always
23:05
possible. They don't know the past, they won't the police have
23:09
not revealed the identity or the the citizenship of any of these
23:14
passports or what they claimed to be. So they don't know what
23:18
they do. They will say it's not Ukrainian, not American and not
23:22
Russian. So it could be German. I think the Germans also
23:26
eliminated
23:28
Adam Curry: then it will be Swedish, Danish.
23:30
John C Dvorak: Could be anything could be Chinese.
23:32
Adam Curry: And we don't have I mean, the thing that they do,
23:36
it's pretty easy to go back and see what you know, there's all
23:39
kinds of radar information, which is how we know about the P
23:43
eight that supposedly coordinate Hirsch dropped the detonator
23:48
buoy into the water, you know that all these boats have
23:53
identifiers that paying regularly you can't just be in
23:56
those waters without you know, without pinging, like your ATS
24:00
or whatever. I'm not sure what in in airplanes at ADSB. But
24:03
it's similar. You can every ship has to have some kind of Beacon.
24:07
So they turn that off, really. They didn't say a lot of holes
24:12
in the story.
24:13
John C Dvorak: There's a lot of holes in the story. And I'm
24:16
trying to think of some more holes that they revealed. They
24:18
revealed most of the holes and the story these holes can't be
24:23
plugged. They police just aren't going to give that information
24:26
out according to this guy. And
24:27
Adam Curry: I want to know the forensic evidence of this
24:29
because we were told it was C for explosives. So what do they
24:33
do where they just leave it laying around like and left a
24:36
little bit on the table. So raw?
24:41
John C Dvorak: I think, Steve, I think there's I think C four can
24:43
be identified just in microscopic amounts.
24:46
Adam Curry: Yeah. I mean, you're not buying into this bullcrap.
24:49
Are you?
24:50
John C Dvorak: I'm, I'm not buying into anything. I mean,
24:53
I'm not buying into SEMO Hirsch's story either. I'm not
24:56
buying into any of it. I think the whole thing is we're just
24:58
being played But it depends on who's gonna do the best job of
25:02
it. And it's interesting to watch this a good one is unfolds
25:07
because this would would help us get out of the stupid war. I
25:09
Adam Curry: agree into it. So just just because we had a
25:13
previous theory, we talked about that Seymour Hersh was fed this
25:17
entire story on purpose to elicit a response from Russia,
25:24
which of course did not happen. So this could be a total
25:30
pullback for some reason, I might have some ideas on that.
25:34
Or it could be a whole competing info information source inside
25:39
the US and German government that just threw this out to get
25:43
everyone off track altogether. I mean,
25:45
John C Dvorak: it was Something's fishy with this
25:47
appearance of Schultz. I know nothing. In Washington DC for
25:53
one lone hour. I mean, this this means that this has been
25:56
coordinated by somebody. So let's go to clip three
26:01
Unknown: they there's more in your reporting. Five men, one
26:05
woman in this team with two divers a minivan a doctor. Can
26:12
you tell us more about that?
26:13
So according to German police investigation, a white van was
26:18
used to bring equipment to the to the act in Rostock, we don't
26:23
know Hold
26:24
Adam Curry: on a second. If this if it's fake passports. How do
26:28
they know that there was all these different like a doctor
26:31
and how did they know that does it did it say that on the
26:33
passport? Like diver doctor, woman? Well, woman would be on
26:37
their good point.
26:38
John C Dvorak: I mean, how do they know that what that is
26:40
specifically was not addressed?
26:42
Unknown: The there's more in your reporting? Five men, one
26:46
woman in this team with two divers, a mini van a doctor can
26:54
tell us more about that.
26:55
So according to German police investigation, a white van was
26:59
used to bring equipment to the to the act in Rostock, we don't
27:05
know how they found out about that van. Apparently, this is
27:11
what they what they believe how it happens. I just report but
27:14
they tell me. And the theories about the team consisted of six
27:18
people, as you said, two divers, two assistants, you need a
27:22
captain for the boat and the medic. And German investigators
27:25
believed that the woman and the team that she was the medic, she
27:28
was described to us as a very tiny person. And the working
27:33
theory of German police is that this woman was the medic
27:37
Adam Curry: was Roseanne Barr, maybe
27:40
Unknown: it is a very dangerous task to go down the Baltic Sea
27:44
80 meters, even if you're a professional, experienced diver,
27:47
or even a special forces military diver. So you would
27:50
want to have a medic that makes sense this theory. But still, I
27:56
think it's also very important to add what we don't know we
27:59
don't know the official identity the real identity of those six
28:02
persons. Neither do we know the nationality or whom audited them
28:07
to commit this attack. But there was a trace found another trace,
28:12
they left a paper trail who documents we used to very highly
28:16
professional forged documents, apparently passports. That That
28:23
means that German authorities at least possess pictures of two of
28:27
this team out of six persons.
28:31
Oh, man, this is.
28:35
Adam Curry: So this could also just purely be a hit job on the
28:37
Germans. I mean, this this whole thing is nuts. It's nuts.
28:45
John C Dvorak: It's just yet. Yeah, I think you could probably
28:47
make that assumption. It did. Anyway, when I did a few other
28:52
details. I didn't want to keep recording these little clips
28:54
because it was like at some point. And then the other people
28:57
that were up there a couple of them, especially this one
28:59
cynical guys. British. He says I think he was him. He says it's
29:04
so convenient that they found traces of this explosive, these
29:09
professionals with these great, you know, unbelievably great
29:12
forged documents that could sneak in and out. Nobody knows
29:15
who the hell they are. But they can't clean up the boat. Kind of
29:19
commentary was very, you know, you'd been good on this panel,
29:22
by the way. Well, that there's a lot of skepticism on the panel
29:26
discussing this. And it seems it there was brought out one
29:31
interesting point too, is that it seems as if the Americans and
29:35
and some of the European partners are a little irked with
29:38
Ukraine anyway after they pulled some stunts one blowing up the
29:43
bridge to Crimea. Yeah, that was number one that wasn't approved
29:48
by anybody. Second one sending some missiles into deep into
29:53
Russia in blowing out or hitting an airport. And the number of
29:58
little things that are getting You know, there was nerves. And
30:01
I think, you know, I gave you credit. I said, you won because
30:05
I, I still think this is part of an elaborate scheme to get us
30:09
out.
30:10
Adam Curry: No, I agree with you. And I think I can back that
30:13
up. There's a couple other things going on at this very
30:15
moment and one that that ruins the whole idea. I'll give you
30:19
that first. The because I think this could this could end very
30:24
quickly. I've been saying that for a while. But I think within
30:27
within within a month or so the only thing that all of a sudden
30:32
goes against that is a Live Aid style gig for Ukraine at Wembley
30:37
Stadium set for end of June. With of course, you know, some
30:43
of your favorites Bano stink the stones the killers. Who else is
30:50
going to be there? Stones? Yep. Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney,
30:54
Adele, your favorite Florence in the machine? No, Gallagher.
30:59
Unknown: Brother. Yeah.
31:00
Adam Curry: So that's it for June 24. So I'm not quite sure
31:03
if we could turn it into a victory. Because whatever
31:07
happens, just like Afghanistan, just like Iraq, you know, we'll
31:11
just we'll just declare victory doesn't matter. But the stage is
31:18
set with the reporting for exactly what I thought might
31:22
happen is this whole eastern border, this whole Donbass
31:26
region that should just become Russia. That's all Russia ever
31:29
really wanted, I think is to have that, to have that buffer
31:33
people there who want to be part of Russia anyway. And this is
31:38
what the whole Bach moods thing is,
31:40
Unknown: after some intense fighting, the battle for
31:43
Buckwald may be nearing its end game. NATO chief says the
31:47
eastern Ukrainian city could fall to Russia in a matter of
31:50
days. Now, Jens Stoltenberg remarks come as Russia's Wagner
31:55
mercenary group claims to have captured the eastern bank of the
31:58
industrial town
32:00
we can not rule out that may eventually fall in the coming
32:10
days. Therefore, it is also important to highlight that this
32:16
does not necessarily reflect any turning point of the war. Just
32:29
highlights that we should not underestimate Russia.
32:33
Adam Curry: Now that's that's the big warmonger. Jens
32:36
Stoltenberg. And he is now signaling Wow, it looks like
32:39
it's I don't know, it looks like they just might grab that. By
32:43
the way I see trolls who clearly are MK Ultra saying who you
32:47
think Putin is going to stop that? I actually do. I actually
32:52
do think he's going to stop at that. And they have a pretty big
32:57
stick.
32:57
John C Dvorak: While people come up with this stuff. Well,
33:00
clearly not listening to our show. Well, you haven't really
33:03
observed anything. They just thought this is some sort of
33:05
mind control.
33:06
Adam Curry: It's not in control. Yeah, by the mainstream media,
33:10
and very effective mind control because you know, babies, women,
33:13
horrible death, destruction, Russia bad and we've lost many
33:17
listeners. We've lost many listeners over this, who just
33:21
said wait, I can't listen to you anymore. You don't understand
33:23
how dangerous Putin is. Dude, Putin has shown nothing but
33:28
great restraint, certainly over this particular case, which, you
33:34
know, this is their export, it got blown up. And so now there's
33:39
something that's coming to an end this month that may be the
33:44
catalyst to pull this all together.
33:46
Unknown: The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and
33:49
Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky have called for the
33:51
extension of a crucial deal with Moscow that allows Ukrainian
33:55
grain exports. Speaking after talks, and Keith Lenski stressed
33:59
that the Black Sea grain initiative was vital for the
34:02
world's terrorists agreed saying the agreement was essential to
34:05
global food security. The deal allows Ukraine to ship grain
34:09
from its black sea ports and Russia to export fertilizer and
34:13
food. It's set to expire on March 18. And Moscow has
34:16
signaled that it might not let the deal continue.
34:19
Adam Curry: So we're already in negotiations. You know, there's
34:22
already talks on the table just addled. Okay, look, you get the
34:26
Donbass, you get that region. We open that up for grain we won.
34:32
John C Dvorak: Now, there's something else that was pointed
34:34
out and this debate was on French 24. One of the guy said,
34:40
Why would Ukraine do any of this to that pipeline when they could
34:43
just blow up the pipeline, that pipeline that's going through
34:46
Ukraine is still going through Ukraine from
34:49
Adam Curry: Russia, and it's and it's still operating, as far as
34:51
I know, still operating and
34:52
John C Dvorak: is still pumping products? Yeah. Yeah. Why don't
34:55
they just blow that up?
34:57
Adam Curry: Well, the reason why is Is there ammo
35:01
Unknown: and Ukraine's defense minister has said the EU's plan
35:04
to supply Keith with 1 billion euros worth of ammunition was
35:07
not enough. Alexei Resnikoff says Ukraine needs four times
35:11
that amount. The huge defense ministers are meeting in
35:14
Stockholm to try and hammer out a deal that would see the block
35:17
launch a massive joint munitions buying efforts.
35:20
Western how it serves on the battlefield and essential tool
35:23
in a war that for the moment has settled into an artillery duel
35:27
between Ukraine and Russia. With Ukrainian forces using up to
35:32
7000 artillery rounds daily sending ammunition especially
35:36
the 155 millimeter NATO standard shells has become a top priority
35:41
for kyiv's allies and it big problems as defense expert drone
35:45
Aleta,
35:46
not only is Ukraine running low on this, also European nations
35:50
are running out of stockpiles, our own reserves are running
35:54
low. So this is a big problem, of course, because we will not
35:57
be able to deliver
35:59
to ramp up supplies use cheap diploma to the Burrell has put
36:03
forward a three track plan proposing an additional 1
36:07
billion euros to buy ammunition, joint purchasing of ammunition
36:11
by Member States and increasing production in the long term.
36:15
I think it's a very big deal. I mean, look, the European Union
36:18
is an institute credits for peaceful goals. So we now see
36:24
that the European Union is moving into the military sphere.
36:26
And this is a first time in history. It's pretty unique
36:29
actually,
36:29
the idea is to apply a mechanism similar to the one used during
36:34
the COVID 19 pandemic when the European Commission negotiated
36:38
contracts and acquired vaccines on behalf of member states. Now
36:42
the European defense agency could sign arms contracts on
36:46
behalf of its members.
36:49
Adam Curry: So we're achieving a lot even though I mean we all
36:52
say the European Union is achieving a lot of things. So
36:56
they they put in place a mechanism where Queen Ursula
36:59
herself ordered through text messages negotiated the deal
37:04
with Pfizer for the vaccines. Now, that framework, as they
37:09
say, is in place for her to order any type of ammo as long
37:12
as it's the standard NATO ammo, is that we've got that in place.
37:17
Well, this is good. And now I'd say that they have already
37:22
achieved the deal. It's time to let a little pressure off to go
37:26
into the fall on climate change initiatives that they have been
37:29
teeing up and she actually lied she lied like a mofo when she
37:35
was in Canada. CBC did a an exclusive exclusive interview.
37:40
Listen to what she says about the Russian gas
37:42
Unknown: point when you're needed natural gas though Canada
37:44
wasn't able to directly meet the demand because of a lack of
37:47
capacity and infrastructure here in particular on the East Coast.
37:50
And and Canada's critics internally have said our climate
37:53
policies and our review process left us unable to meet Europe's
37:57
needs. What's your stance on that
37:59
Canada helped indirectly because Canada stepped up its production
38:03
overall. And we had a situation when Russia cut the pipeline gas
38:07
to Europe 80% of the pipeline gas they had sent to Europe.
38:11
Adam Curry: Excuse me. At what point did Russia cut the
38:16
pipeline 80% of the pipeline gas to Europe do Am I missing
38:20
something here? When did that happen? Is she referring to
38:26
blowing up the pipes? No no. When did they didn't turn it
38:30
off?
38:32
John C Dvorak: Well if they turned it off then when they
38:34
blew up the pipe you and had all that gas escape.
38:36
Adam Curry: Well, that was methane. They say that that's
38:39
what the gas is with that and that was from number two. Well,
38:44
but my point is when whenever When did Russia turn? That's a
38:49
lie. I don't think they ever did that.
38:52
John C Dvorak: You know, I get the sense that it came up in the
38:54
conversation though. Will keep keep rolling out oh look, I may
38:59
look
38:59
Unknown: pleased we had a situation when Russia cut the
39:02
pipeline gas to Europe, the pipeline gas you said 80% of the
39:06
pipeline gas they had sent to Europe. The overall energy
39:10
supply on the global market was very tight. And here, Canada
39:15
helped indirectly by stepping up or increasing the LNG
39:18
production. This freed more resources in different regions
39:22
of the world and gave us the opportunity to buy LNG on the
39:25
global market so to help us in a very critical stage.
39:29
Adam Curry: By the way the troll room correctly recognizes my
39:33
statement is true methane gas comes from number two very funny
39:37
trolls. It was not intended you find anything.
39:44
John C Dvorak: Yeah, there was some rusher at resume gas
39:47
supplies to your business in December last year so they had
39:51
cut it off.
39:55
Adam Curry: Okay. Well, to continue on This one I think May
40:02
the choice the EU may be making is okay. Now we're good to go.
40:07
We hated gas anyway. Russia cut it off. There's no There's there
40:12
mothballing, you read this, this this term everywhere there
40:16
mothballing the gas pipelines indicated they will never come
40:21
back again. And this means it's time for green hydro Jean.
40:25
Unknown: Right. They helped you indirectly. But it wouldn't be
40:27
preferable. I want to talk about Canada being a natural partner
40:29
for all the reasons you outlined. But to have direct
40:31
shipments of Canadian liquid natural gas going to Europe,
40:34
would that not be a preferred outcome?
40:36
That would be interesting, but it has to be a business case. So
40:40
it's, it's the companies who have to, to decide on that one,
40:44
what is more important is, over time, this is not the acute
40:48
crisis reaction. Over time, we will go and we are going deep
40:52
into renewable energy. And here also Canada as a prime partner.
40:55
If you look at hydrogen, for example, this is the topic for
41:01
the European Union, we will import a lot of hydrogen. And
41:05
here natural partner, again, is Canada. So we are working now on
41:09
a memorandum of understanding with the Canadian government,
41:13
specifically for hydrogen, because this is the mid and long
41:15
term, partnership and relationship we want to build.
41:18
Adam Curry: I'm glad you asked that question. What I'm learning
41:21
now, and I'm not sure if Canada is a part of this. But I am
41:25
learning that hydrogen there appear to be large deposits of
41:30
hydrogen in different parts of the earth, which could be
41:33
extracted and can be shipped off somehow I'm not familiar with
41:38
the mechanism without going through the whole green
41:43
hydrolysis process, and Canada in this case, has a lot of
41:48
natural gas. So they could be creating what they call blue
41:52
hydrogen. With a natural gas, it's the stupidest thing in the
41:56
world, but with their gas, where they keep their gas in Canada,
42:01
use that for electrolysis and then capture the hydrogen and
42:05
then ship it off to Europe. And this is, this is also happening
42:12
in Africa, which kind of explains what's happening. This
42:15
is a short report,
42:16
Unknown: the future of European energy could rely on Africa with
42:19
lots of sunshine and wind much of the continent is ideal for
42:22
generating clean electricity, or for using it to create another
42:26
clean fuel hydrogen. Now the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and
42:31
Germany have struck a $24 billion deal in Mauritania,
42:34
where they'll build a hydrogen facility near the capital nuoc
42:38
shops. It has a planned capacity of 10 gigawatts that's the
42:41
output of roughly five to six standard nuclear power plants.
42:45
The first phase of the project is set to be completed by 2028.
42:49
So what
42:49
Adam Curry: we're hearing is it's all going to be
42:51
John C Dvorak: what is the dumbest thing I've ever heard in
42:54
my life. Okay, could get that much energy from five nuclear
43:00
plants? Yes, use that energy I hear
43:04
Adam Curry: you but you know, that is green. They're not going
43:08
to do that. We all know that
43:09
John C Dvorak: we're using the energy from the nukes you use
43:12
the energy from the nukes to make hydrogen now there was an
43:15
inefficient process by comparison, yes. And then ship
43:19
the hydrogen off and then this stuff that is a piece of shit
43:22
anyway, because it's leeches through everything is horrible
43:25
product. I've said this before. And okay, now we've just gotten
43:30
to comedic
43:31
Adam Curry: Well, here's here's the kicker, New Scientist
43:35
magazine, gold hydrogen. There appears to be a huge reserve of
43:40
clean fuel in the Earth's crust. One of the main places this is
43:45
Mauritania, followed by Senegal Nish air, Guinea Bissau and
43:53
Diablo. This is why everyone's in Africa. They're all going
43:57
they're like, oh, okay, well, we'll just throw some some bull
44:01
crap solar panels up are really going to grab this hydrogen ship
44:04
that back somehow, because that's a September 1 2022. We
44:09
first saw the switch from the green new deal to the new
44:12
hydrogen deal. And it obviously it's stupid. It makes no sense.
44:18
They should of course, they should just do nuclear. But I
44:21
guess you don't have enough control over the masses. If you
44:24
can't, you know, go to war and shoot and break people's
44:27
pipelines. And it's insane, obviously. But it's happening.
44:33
They really go well except the UK. The UK hasn't figured out
44:37
that this war has to end and we've got all the hydrogen we
44:40
want. And the UK Of course, no longer part of the EU. So
44:43
they're they're not even getting briefed. This is a Tobias
44:47
Elwood, he's the What is this guy? He's the head of head of
44:52
the British Parliament Defense Committee.
44:56
Unknown: We are now at war in Europe. We need to move to a war
45:00
footing we are involved in that we've mobilized our procurement
45:03
processes, we're gifting equipment, we need to face
45:06
Russia directly and reckon that rather than leaving Ukraine to
45:09
do
45:09
Adam Curry: all the work, he wants to send troops to Ukraine
45:13
to go fight Russia. So they're not reading clearly. But I think
45:17
I think this is although he's not for sure. Well, he's
45:21
representing the defense committee. So the whole defense
45:23
committee is not to it, this is this is some kind of big move to
45:31
Australia is trying to get on and this is a Chris, you want to
45:34
hear crazy report when it comes to hydrogen. Listen to this,
45:37
Unknown: Australian scientists are spearheading a new way of
45:39
producing energy. Researchers at Monash University have
45:43
discovered bacteria found in soil can convert hydrogen in the
45:47
air into electricity. The enzyme called who could unlock an
45:51
unlimited source of energy as Australia looks to be a global
45:55
hydrogen leader by the end of the decade.
45:57
Adam Curry: So who I don't know what this who is the enzyme
46:01
called who? Who have you ever heard
46:06
John C Dvorak: this report to This is bull crap.
46:08
Adam Curry: What is who? I don't know. Almost an enzyme. The
46:13
enzyme name who? So obviously
46:16
John C Dvorak: Chinese, huh?
46:20
Adam Curry: No, it could be some attract but they haven't been in
46:24
Australia. Anyway. This is
46:28
John C Dvorak: yeah, these ideas. There was one that was
46:30
the one that came up the other day. It's like some other
46:33
bacteria or something it could take. Yeah, this is the one that
46:37
can take hydrogen, current hydrogen in the atmosphere,
46:40
which is point 0000, whatever. And turn it into free
46:46
electricity.
46:47
Adam Curry: I love that. 0.0 is perfect. right up your alley.
46:51
Zero Point Energy, everybody. We got it. How about this? The
46:55
whole idea is just I think we discussed it before the solar
47:00
panels, the windmills. It's old. We're tired of it. 20 years, you
47:03
know, it's not working. It's not it's not profitable. Everyone's
47:07
kind of
47:07
John C Dvorak: the first time this we had this first round
47:09
about this in the 70s.
47:11
Adam Curry: Okay, but we're talking today's voters, not not
47:14
the people who are half dead. Like you and me that know
47:17
John C Dvorak: what, like me. Nothing means.
47:21
Adam Curry: Wow, man, it wasn't funny the first time I mean,
47:24
three times and now you're really overdoing it. And you're
47:27
gonna you're not gonna get the Germans are gonna get mad.
47:30
Because that
47:30
John C Dvorak: was they loved that guy. And then we go on,
47:32
Adam Curry: they hate Oh, hey, go on. Okay, Kara. Thanks. Now.
47:37
You're in a mood today, man. What's wrong?
47:40
John C Dvorak: It's my new AMP on my little microphone. Oh,
47:44
okay. It's got me all jacked up. I can trace a different kind of
47:47
aura in the in the studio. Yeah.
47:49
Adam Curry: Let's go back to the other one. I liked old John.
47:53
This is clearly by the way, Suzanne Santos. Do you remember
47:58
who she is? No. She's an actress, musician. She's the one
48:03
that went on Rogen like a year ago and was talking about how
48:07
much he loved our show and how much he loves it when we bicker.
48:10
Oh, yes. I remember this actress. She went on and on
48:12
about it. She says hi. She was at the show last night.
48:16
John C Dvorak: Oh, she was there too. Yeah, just take all the
48:18
celebrities from Austin.
48:20
Adam Curry: Don't Don't Don't miss it. Hi. Big fan. Well, hi
48:23
John C Dvorak: back.
48:24
Adam Curry: Yeah, that was great. She's very nice. She's
48:25
John C Dvorak: one of my favorite. She's gorgeous. She's
48:28
and.
48:29
Adam Curry: And on the way home tonight we're listening to her
48:31
music is pretty good. But her album came out during COVID.
48:36
Which kind of sucks I guess. Anyway. I think that this is
48:39
just another 10 year Gambit. This is the whole idea. We'll
48:43
just keep on fundraising, keep on doing political stuff. They
48:46
don't actually want anything to work. That would kind of fit the
48:49
whole narrative that
48:50
John C Dvorak: actually is the best thesis that I think the
48:53
show's ever uncovered. Yeah, it seems that all bullcrap. To keep
48:57
the money if cash flow.
48:59
Adam Curry: Yeah, cash flow. Exactly. Keep soaking the people
49:02
up, give reasons to print more money everywhere. Because you
49:05
know, we got to do some. And, you know, the only thing that
49:09
remains open is what do we do with the military industrial
49:13
complex if we pull back from the war in Ukraine. And what I'm
49:20
seeing is, I know you you don't really think it's happening. But
49:25
I just see a pivot to China.
49:28
John C Dvorak: They can pivot to Georgia, according to this
49:31
morning.
49:32
Adam Curry: I saw it but China is more fun. Yeah, Chinese more
49:36
China has
49:37
John C Dvorak: tried to take on China, as well as anyone's ever
49:39
tried to take on Russia gets destroyed. And it's really
49:44
Adam Curry: well let's listen to a few reports here. This is NBC.
49:46
Let's turn now
49:47
Unknown: to those warnings aimed at the white house from top
49:49
leaders in China, including its president, and they are
49:52
ratcheting up the tensions between the two nations amid
49:54
growing concern about China's potential involvement in the war
49:58
in Ukraine. And VCs ma Holly Hunter has that story with us in
50:01
Mali, these are rare. These are direct messages. How seriously
50:05
are they being received?
50:07
Yeah. Hoda? That's exactly right. These are rare. These are
50:09
direct. And today for the second day in a row we heard very
50:12
similar comments. So Beijing's new foreign minister doubling
50:15
down warning the US and China are hurtling towards what he
50:18
calls direct confrontation and conflict now fiery comments from
50:22
foreign minister chin Gong underline the deepening tension
50:26
between of course the two world's biggest economies this
50:28
echoed sharp comments from China's leader Xi Jinping
50:32
yesterday, blaming Washington for these deteriorating
50:35
relationships. Now speaking in a legislative session, it was
50:38
according and reported by China state TV she accused Washington
50:41
of trying to fence China in take a look at what exactly he said
50:45
he said Western countries led by the United States have
50:47
implemented all round containment in circumvent and
50:51
suppression of China, which has brought unprecedented severe
50:54
challenges to our country's development. Now, Jota as you
50:57
mentioned, these are strong rare words from China's leader. Of
51:00
course, all of this comes as Beijing strongly denies the US
51:04
allegation that it is considering giving Moscow lethal
51:07
aid to us in the war in Ukraine.
51:10
Adam Curry: So there were a couple of wait.
51:13
John C Dvorak: Holder holders back Yeah, yeah. The holder was
51:19
you know the funnies? I always say this. I'm listening to that
51:22
clip. And the holder there. Yeah. I thought it was a guy
51:27
Adam Curry: at the beginning of the clip.
51:29
John C Dvorak: Good. I try to hold his voice at that. That was
51:32
the voice of a male.
51:33
Adam Curry: Yeah. Well, you never know these days.
51:36
International Woman's Day was yesterday. I don't know if you
51:42
saw our first lady.
51:46
John C Dvorak: I guess you didn't know. But I did put that
51:49
picture of her when she's wearing those army sneakers and
51:53
camouflage dress. Remember that? Was in the newsletter.
51:56
Adam Curry: Now. Well, she. She gave out the international Woman
52:01
Oh,
52:02
John C Dvorak: referee does is great, too. Again, we don't have
52:06
any clips or anything that that was unbelievable.
52:10
Adam Curry: I don't Yeah, I didn't clip it. It was a very
52:12
short clip. But it was it was just funny. Like, okay, well,
52:15
but it was it was it was she was International Women's Day. And
52:19
and there's I really thought I had that one. There's Joe Biden
52:23
handing out awards for being outstanding. Women. Let me see
52:28
Woman of the Year. Correct. Well, it was a woman of the year
52:32
or was he was Woman of the Year international Woman of the Year?
52:35
Yeah, even better. Yeah. And it was dude from Nigeria. And
52:41
that's fine. You identify however you want. But come on
52:44
people. There's real women who do not like this. And you're
52:47
going to lose those votes. That's what
52:49
John C Dvorak: oh, look at that woman that was standing behind
52:51
her home and that photo. Yeah. Yeah. What a look.
52:54
Adam Curry: And did they give Rachel Avena prize? Rachel
52:57
always needs a prize or stuff like that. Or did right. I don't
52:59
know. Did you see her anywhere?
53:02
John C Dvorak: Tai Chi is in one of my clips, but I don't know.
53:05
Okay, back
53:05
Adam Curry: to China. Because now we're now it's the same old
53:08
same. And you know, China may even be in on this. I don't
53:11
know. Maybe they're all maybe they're all in collusion.
53:13
John C Dvorak: It's right. You know, thinking about this idea.
53:16
This is just cash flow. For everybody wait possible
53:20
Adam Curry: for rattle rinse and repeat. Repeat get those sabers,
53:23
rattle them rinse and repeat. This is a Deutsche Bella clip
53:27
and you'll hear very similar language in the CBS report.
53:31
Unknown: China has announced that it will be boosting its
53:34
military spending in the coming years to counter what it
53:36
describes as escalating threats from abroad. The move was
53:40
announced at the National People's Congress a rubber stamp
53:43
Parliament, which is currently meeting in Beijing, officials
53:46
said the country's military budget would increase by 7.2%.
53:51
Now China's current military budget is around 225 billion US
53:56
dollars. That's only about a quarter of that of the United
53:59
States. China's military activities that are being
54:02
watched with concerned by Taiwan, which earlier warned of
54:05
the need to be on high alert for China, entering areas close to
54:09
its territory.
54:11
Adam Curry: So only 7.2% gotta step it up boys. We're giving
54:14
away all our money. We give away almost everything $900 billion a
54:19
year. You guys are lame. Now what was the key phrase there
54:23
that we heard? What was it? Well, first of all, you've got
54:28
to stop doing that. Because it's really it's like you're it's
54:32
like you're just grabbing the mic every single time. Are you?
54:38
John C Dvorak: I did that time. But I'm not grabbing the mic per
54:41
se. I don't know why. I can't tell what it is noises that
54:46
you're hearing because you're hanging. It's
54:47
Adam Curry: your hand touching the microphone.
54:49
John C Dvorak: I don't touch the mic from my hand is three feet
54:52
away from the microphone at all times. Well,
54:55
Adam Curry: then how can I hear this?
54:57
John C Dvorak: I'm wondering myself. Okay,
54:58
Adam Curry: I'll point it out every single time You do it
55:00
because yes please I'm sure you're touching something stop
55:03
touching the microphone stand don't touch the stand it rattles
55:07
like a mofo. Yes, yes that you can't touch it can't touch this.
55:15
John C Dvorak: Then what good is this little? This this isolator?
55:18
Adam Curry: You know, I wonder that all the time. You don't
55:23
wear headphones.
55:24
John C Dvorak: I've got an isolator on the mic. It
55:26
shouldn't be affected by anything. Does not indirect
55:30
contact with the mic?
55:32
Adam Curry: The whole world is hearing it. Well, I
55:35
John C Dvorak: don't know about that. Don't have your ears.
55:37
Anyway and continue please.
55:40
Adam Curry: CBS This Morning.
55:42
Unknown: The National People's Congress the largest rubber
55:45
stamp parliament in the world.
55:47
Adam Curry: Did you hear it now? So Deutsche Avella and CBS are
55:51
using the same term rubber stamp parliament the largest rubber
55:56
stamp parliament in the world
55:59
John C Dvorak: which has absolutely zero power
56:01
whatsoever. It is not a rubber stamp parliament.
56:06
Adam Curry: What's the largest? Being honest, it's the largest.
56:12
Unknown: The National People's Congress, the largest rubber
56:15
stamp parliament in the world has convened in Beijing. This
56:20
week, almost 3000 delegates will enshrine in law the wishes of
56:24
their leader China's President Xi Jinping. She's zero COVID
56:30
policy with his ruthless quarantines and epic testing did
56:34
huge economic damage to China for a congress Premier League.
56:39
Adam Curry: You want to say something?
56:40
John C Dvorak: We had ruthless quarantines Australia has went
56:43
on differently. Australia had ruthless quarantines like
56:47
Australia and New Zealand worse, huge
56:50
Unknown: economic damage to China. At the Congress Premier
56:53
Li Ko Chang made it clear repairing the damage is a top
56:57
priority. The development target he said is growth of around 5%.
57:03
But it's not clear that growth will translate into good news
57:07
for American businesses in China. So there's a chill in the
57:11
air. There certainly is a chill in the air. As US China
57:15
relations sour. Some American companies fear they're already
57:19
suffering the fallout. Michael Hart heads the American Chamber
57:22
of Commerce in Beijing
57:24
companies feel like they're squeezed out of certain
57:26
industries. And so there is a question mark that many US
57:29
companies have about, you know, are we really welcome?
57:33
That depends to a large extent on President Xi, he officially
57:37
begins an unprecedented third term later this week, backed by
57:41
an inner circle chosen above all for their loyalty, they will
57:45
support him whether he seeks to escalate confrontation with the
57:49
US and its allies, or dial it back. All eyes will be on the
57:53
Congress this week for clues as to which way that might go.
57:58
Adam Curry: Okay, so we clearly are focusing on China to up our
58:03
coffers to get the military focused and all the money I
58:06
think this is what the the plan loosely is from at least a large
58:10
portion of the military industrial complex, just like,
58:13
you know, we get oh, North Korea shooting off some missiles, or
58:15
we need to put some more stuff in South Korea, as admitted by
58:18
my uncle, Uncle Don. It's like that's all military industrial
58:21
complex build up. So now we have China, we've got to get the
58:26
position stuff in the Philippines. For Taiwan, we've
58:30
got to position stuff in Japan, just in case just in case. So
58:33
now we are going to be building that up. And we need a lot more
58:36
much Montreal a lot more. And it's not NATO. So we can't use
58:40
your stupid NATO stock. We're gonna use other stuff, our new
58:43
stuff. And so this presents tremendous opportunities. Enter
58:49
tick tock, tick tock. This started and I think it still is
58:56
Silicon Valley's initiative to remove Tik Tok from the scene
59:01
because they're eating up right now $6 billion a year of
59:05
advertising money. That is not going to mainly Facebook.
59:10
Twitter is a whole different deal with no one gives a shit
59:12
over there Twitter. But Google even has, by the way, we look at
59:17
her masters today, Kume laude in psychology, that particular
59:22
algorithm, so and she was the one that had the inside
59:24
information that internal report that Google is very worried that
59:29
one out of two people search for something on tick tock before
59:33
they search on Google, which is a very big problem.
59:37
John C Dvorak: Maybe if Google did a better job go well of
59:40
Adam Curry: course that's the problem. They cannot compete and
59:42
tick tock just nailed it. They can
59:44
John C Dvorak: they can compete. They just can't gouges much. Now
59:48
tick tock
59:48
Adam Curry: is is it's crack. You know they have not had crack
59:52
in a long time in Silicon Valley. They just can't create
59:55
at once trying to do it but they can't do it. They can't they
59:58
can't recreate what tick tock is I was born to the world. So this
1:00:01
created an enormous opportunity. Let's pay politicians you know,
1:00:05
I mean, let's support them for their reelection campaign. Let's
1:00:08
lobby them make sure that they got Oh tick tock is bad China
1:00:12
China's stealing our information. Oh China is is
1:00:15
manipulating our children Scott Adams moron. So now we can do
1:00:20
everything kind of all at one time ABC News two
1:00:23
Unknown: subjects dominated a Senate hearing on the top global
1:00:26
threats to America COVID-19 And Tik Tok to me It screams out
1:00:30
with national security concerns. Senator Marco Rubio question FBI
1:00:34
director Christopher Rea, on whether tick tock, which is
1:00:37
owned by a Chinese company could censor videos to shape us public
1:00:41
opinion?
1:00:42
Could they use it to control the software on millions of devices
1:00:45
given the opportunity to do so we couldn't draw the software?
1:00:48
Yes. Because they use it to drive narratives like to divide
1:00:52
Americans against each other. For example, let's say China
1:00:55
wants to invade Taiwan to make sure that Americans are seeing
1:00:59
videos arguing why Taiwan belongs to China and why the US
1:01:03
should not intervene
1:01:04
Adam Curry: that this now now tick tock is a is a weapon of
1:01:08
military grade war. Because you know, they could change what we
1:01:13
see. And then when you're wrong, you
1:01:14
John C Dvorak: me are changed the way we want to vote the way
1:01:16
Google data the way Facebook dash can do it. We must be able
1:01:22
to do it too, even though we have no evidence of this. No,
1:01:25
I'll give you a good one. And by the way, I just I'm just
1:01:29
harkening back to the Oh, China's trying to trying to
1:01:33
censor Google, we can't have anything that free and open
1:01:36
internet or Saudi Arabia wants to cut off American internet we
1:01:41
have to have a free and open internet and net neutrality. Oh,
1:01:45
just wait
1:01:45
Adam Curry: for it
1:01:46
Unknown: to make sure that Americans are seeing videos
1:01:49
arguing why Taiwan belongs to China, why the US should not
1:01:52
intervene.
1:01:53
Yes, tic tock CEO has insisted the company would never provide
1:01:57
Americans data to the Chinese government. But here's what
1:01:59
Senator John Thune told ABC is Trevor alt.
1:02:02
Adam Curry: It's all bullshit. John, we know it's bullshit.
1:02:06
This is tomorrow to mark today. This afternoon. The government
1:02:11
could say you know what, we got a problem. We got to remove tick
1:02:14
tock from Android and from iOS app stores. But they're not
1:02:17
going to do that. Because there's very important when
1:02:20
Unknown: you see something concrete showing that tick tock
1:02:22
has maybe taken Americans data and given it to China or is that
1:02:25
simply a hypothetical that your concern could happen? No.
1:02:29
There's there's evidence to that effect.
1:02:31
Another hot topic at the hearing the origins of COVID-19 and the
1:02:34
two leading theories, either the virus evolved naturally or it
1:02:38
leaked accidentally from a lab in Wuhan, China. Dr. Robert
1:02:42
Redfield, the CDC director under President Trump testified he was
1:02:45
excluded from discussions about the origin of the virus by Dr.
1:02:48
Anthony Fauci and other scientists because he believed
1:02:51
the lab leak theory warranted investigation
1:02:54
was told to me that they wanted a single narrative and that I
1:02:58
obviously had a different point of view.
1:03:00
Dr. Fauci calling that accusation completely untrue and
1:03:03
saying no one excluded anyone.
1:03:05
Adam Curry: So here's how this information warfare operation is
1:03:09
working against the American people. We start by saying tick
1:03:13
tock bad tick tock bad to go tick tock all the all the
1:03:15
controlling are to look like they give good tick tock to
1:03:18
children China bad tic tock to children by the way, it's people
1:03:22
my age who are hooked on tick tock people with money who are
1:03:26
who actually vote you know, this is this is crack for the masses.
1:03:31
So we have that aspect now. Oh, now you Oh my goodness. All of a
1:03:35
sudden we have it came from the lab in Wuhan. Look up in the sky
1:03:38
a balloon the spy balloon. This. This is completely shaped to
1:03:44
make America hate China with a rubber stamp Parliament
1:03:48
Unknown: tick tock could be banned from the US under a new
1:03:50
bipartisan bill proposed today the Senate legislation would
1:03:53
give the Commerce Secretary new powers to act against tech
1:03:56
companies based in six foreign nations including China.
1:04:01
President Biden has ordered that Tiktok be removed from
1:04:04
government devices over concerns that China could be trying to
1:04:07
spy on Americans.
1:04:08
Adam Curry: So you look at the bill that's being proposed. It
1:04:11
is not against tick tock it is giving the Commerce Secretary
1:04:15
your US government not a rubber stamp complete control over what
1:04:20
you can do on the internet what what you can launch or if
1:04:23
there's any Oh, this could be bad could be data leaking out to
1:04:26
some other country. They want to control the internet. They want
1:04:31
to control it and why comes out of this one clip. And this is
1:04:35
from the hearing about tick tock and they had in this KNOCK KNOCK
1:04:43
zone. He's the NSA Director. And they're asking Naloxone, about
1:04:49
what the power what the power of Tiktok really is. Listen
1:04:54
carefully
1:04:54
Unknown: scrolling on your phone, using tick tock could
1:04:58
soon be a thing of the past. asked if you live in the US. As
1:05:02
on Tuesday, a dozen senators unveiled a new bill, which, if
1:05:07
passed, would authorize the Commerce Secretary to ban
1:05:11
technology products viewed as threats to national security.
1:05:14
And while not explicitly aimed at tick tock review, it's clear
1:05:18
that the Chinese owned app is a cause for concern.
1:05:21
So tick tock concerns me in for a number of different reasons.
1:05:24
One is the data that they have. Secondly, is the algorithm and
1:05:27
the control who has the algorithm. Third is to broad
1:05:30
platform influence operations, as we talked about previously,
1:05:33
it's not only a fact that you can influence something but you
1:05:35
can also, you know, turn off the message as well when you have
1:05:37
such a large population of listeners.
1:05:41
Adam Curry: Okay, what did he just say?
1:05:46
John C Dvorak: I don't know what he said. But he says about
1:05:48
turning off the messaging, when you have a large number of
1:05:51
listeners, what's he talking about?
1:05:52
Adam Curry: Well, he's poorly informed cuz he doesn't give a
1:05:54
shit about tick tock, all he cares about is our own our own
1:06:00
propaganda against our own people. What he's saying here
1:06:03
is, the problem is they have to tell us that to give us the algo
1:06:06
tell us how it works, so that we can just like we do with
1:06:08
Twitter, and Facebook, and Instagram. So we can
1:06:12
propagandize people by making things very popular. And he
1:06:15
says, The worst thing is just when we've got something going
1:06:18
viral, because we have all these 1000s of people doing that
1:06:21
within the Pentagon and the State Department, you know,
1:06:24
Smith month be damned, of course, it was overturned, and
1:06:26
now we can commit propaganda against their own people. Will
1:06:30
they will they could just turn it off and stop our propaganda
1:06:33
campaign. Listen, again,
1:06:34
Unknown: it's clear that the Chinese owned app is a cause for
1:06:37
concern.
1:06:38
So tick tock concerns me in for a number of different reasons.
1:06:40
One is the data that they have. Secondly, is the algorithm and
1:06:44
the control who has the algorithm. Third is the broad
1:06:46
platform influence operations, as we talked about previously,
1:06:49
it's not only the fact that you can influence something but you
1:06:51
can also, you know, turn off the message as well, when you have
1:06:54
such a large population of listeners
1:06:57
Adam Curry: influence operations. He's talking about
1:06:59
this the NSA. He's talking about our influence operations. Now,
1:07:03
the fact that he says listeners is because he's already
1:07:05
thinking, How do I censor podcasts. That's why he's
1:07:10
thinking of that. These guys want total control which app you
1:07:14
can have and how the algo works.
1:07:17
Unknown: In the US alone. Tick tock has been downloaded over
1:07:21
200 million times with 138 million monthly active users.
1:07:27
And last year, that app generated nearly $6 billion in
1:07:31
ad revenue in the US. Tick tock said last week that a US ban on
1:07:36
the app would amount to a ban on the export of American culture
1:07:39
and values to the billion people who use their service worldwide.
1:07:44
The app has come under increasing fire over fears that
1:07:47
user data could end up in the hands of the Chinese government
1:07:51
that has already been banned in India, as well as on government
1:07:54
devices in the European Union.
1:07:57
Adam Curry: I love that. I love that report. They put it right
1:07:59
in. Yeah, tick tock and turn off our influence operations with
1:08:03
just one it's all going well. So they have no control.
1:08:08
John C Dvorak: So they banned it in India. Yeah.
1:08:11
Adam Curry: Well, remember China is on Pakistan side.
1:08:16
John C Dvorak: So technically, so are we.
1:08:21
Adam Curry: Well, who the hell knows or what, who's where a
1:08:24
fair weather friend as far as I'm concerned, oops, screw
1:08:26
anybody. And I think the first I think the first blow has been
1:08:32
has landed in the, in the in the US China war. Mitch McConnell is
1:08:40
being treated for concussion after tripping and falling at a
1:08:44
hotel in Washington, DC. Mr. China, you
1:08:49
John C Dvorak: know, reminds who was the previous speaker, the
1:08:52
Senate. The Democrat is Schumer from Nevada. There's all Oh.
1:09:00
Adam Curry: What's his name? Yeah. We've got a rubber band in
1:09:02
his eye.
1:09:05
John C Dvorak: He was all beaten out. He's beaten to shit
1:09:07
basically, by some gangsters or something. Because he read you
1:09:11
what are you reading Harry Reid? Thank you very early and all
1:09:14
beaten up? wouldn't run again. It was out of there. Yep. And so
1:09:18
Mitch McConnell, who is kind of a scion of those Chinese because
1:09:24
he's, I think he's married to a Chinese woman. And he's abroad,
1:09:27
not
1:09:27
Adam Curry: just with not just a Chinese woman, one of the
1:09:30
richest Chinese families with huge shipping contracts. Yeah.
1:09:34
Oh, yeah. Oh, somebody
1:09:36
John C Dvorak: worked him over.
1:09:37
Adam Curry: You know it because they're not really saying what
1:09:39
happened. The saying, Leader McConnell tripped at a dinner
1:09:43
event Wednesday evening, and has been admitted to the hospital
1:09:46
and being treated for concussion. So what if someone
1:09:49
tripped them up? Yeah, the the fall happened at the Waldorf
1:09:54
Astoria Hotel in DC, which was formerly the Trump International
1:09:58
Hotel, according to a source familiar with the matter?
1:10:01
Cheese, you didn't even want
1:10:03
John C Dvorak: to have a source familiar with the matter to
1:10:05
discuss the name change?
1:10:08
Adam Curry: Well, let's see an end for you. Now we'll use 81.
1:10:12
So a bad foul cannot consult when you're 81.
1:10:15
John C Dvorak: Yeah, no, it's something you don't want to
1:10:17
know. But it is suspicious.
1:10:20
Adam Curry: It just the timing is
1:10:22
John C Dvorak: very mean even if you have your if your feet go
1:10:24
out from under you. Like if a slippery says that you'd like to
1:10:30
get a concussion from now, you'd have to hit your head hard on
1:10:33
Adam Curry: exactly on the corner, but they don't have any
1:10:35
report any any real information about that. Now, one more one
1:10:41
more thing, if you just if we just want to really screw
1:10:43
everything over and make everything a problem. This
1:10:49
report came out yesterday. Let me see. Where's this? You yeah,
1:10:56
here we go. This report I loved we're going to Australia,
1:11:00
Unknown: I guess was an extraordinary story. Can you
1:11:03
first of all, tell me why did they dope the gold as it's
1:11:07
called?
1:11:07
Yeah, good morning, they were looking 2018 The Perth Mint was
1:11:11
under quite a bit of financial pressure. And so they took a
1:11:13
decision to dilute or to dope their gold. And that basically
1:11:17
means that they added tiny amounts of silver into the mix
1:11:22
that makes in their gold bars. And this was a really a It's not
1:11:27
illegal, but it's a really high risk strategy because it leaves
1:11:29
them with very little margin for error if something goes wrong,
1:11:33
and so fast forward a couple of years in September 2021. And
1:11:39
they got a complaint from the largest customer, the Shanghai
1:11:42
Gold Exchange. Now, remember here that the Perth Mint had to
1:11:46
do two things, it had to stay above the broader industry
1:11:49
standard. But it also had to stay above the slightly stricter
1:11:54
standards of the Shanghai Gold Exchange. So in September 2021,
1:11:59
it received a complaint from Shanghai that two gold bars were
1:12:04
not up to standard. Now. It that was a very big moment for them,
1:12:09
I would imagine there was quite a bit of sort of panic at the
1:12:12
Perth Mint at that point. And they began an internal
1:12:14
investigation. And what that found was that one of those gold
1:12:18
bars came back as a red flag ie did not meet the standards set
1:12:23
by the Shanghai Gold Exchange, which was incidentally the Perth
1:12:26
Mint largest customer by a very long margin. So at that point,
1:12:31
they'd begun this internal investigation, but it wasn't
1:12:34
just one gold bar. That was this assay, as they call it a test
1:12:41
came back as a red flag meant that the entire gold production
1:12:46
over that three year period was potentially tainted or
1:12:49
substandard. And so as the process went on, they did this
1:12:55
internal report and it came up with this really extraordinary
1:12:58
revelation that having talked to internal staff members had made
1:13:03
some estimates, they made a estimate that up to 100 tonnes
1:13:08
of gold that they had sent to the Shanghai Gold Exchange was
1:13:12
potentially below the Shanghai exchange the standards and may
1:13:16
need to be recalled now, that is 9 billion or $8.7 billion worth
1:13:22
of gold.
1:13:26
Adam Curry: They were they were messing with the gold.
1:13:30
John C Dvorak: This is his idea was this it the
1:13:33
Adam Curry: Perth Mint in Australia. And man, they had the
1:13:37
Western Australia Premier, trying to explain this. He's
1:13:41
sweating. He's sweating. He's sweating bullets over this bed
1:13:46
because he knew about it. They were literally diluting the cold
1:13:52
with silver. Above, you know, above and beyond. I didn't know
1:13:56
that, that this is already done as some kind of standard 0.999
1:14:01
or whatever. And the Shanghai exchange. I mean, when you have
1:14:04
that much gold, which of course has been in circulation amongst
1:14:07
countries, I would presume that you can't look we know we can't
1:14:10
trust the tungsten from China. So now you can't trust
1:14:14
Australia's Gold. Can we trust gold at all? I think this is a
1:14:20
big deal. I may not be seeing it right.
1:14:23
John C Dvorak: But remember the old to be well, we had this big
1:14:26
discussion a number of years back when we were talking about
1:14:29
the tungsten scandals. Yes,
1:14:31
Adam Curry: I have a clip here from this is 2021
1:14:37
Unknown: in jewelry stores on 47th Street and Fifth Avenue.
1:14:40
The important trust between merchants has been violated this
1:14:43
10 ounce gold bar costing nearly $18,000. It turns out to be a
1:14:48
counterfeit worth just about $3,600
1:14:51
Adam Curry: Yeah, but it well, we had I don't I don't have any
1:14:53
of the clips anymore. But way way way long ago China was doing
1:14:57
this. They were they were mixing in time. tungsten, they put a
1:15:01
little bit in a lot just have an outer shell because tungsten I
1:15:05
think is exact, is it exactly the same way as gold?
1:15:07
John C Dvorak: It's close enough close that you wouldn't know the
1:15:10
difference if you could, if you could blend them.
1:15:14
Adam Curry: So this, I think, is, is a real cause for concern
1:15:18
between countries, especially China and Australia or China and
1:15:22
the five eyes or whatever you want to call it, I think it's a
1:15:25
problem. If you can't trust the gold, what are you going to do?
1:15:32
I know, I know, I know exactly what you do. You need Elon Musk
1:15:37
to save you. Elon did another interview. I don't know what
1:15:45
people don't understand this, where the I think we're the only
1:15:47
ones talking about the fact that he is not building a social
1:15:50
network. He is building a finance finance app, like
1:15:55
WeChat, which will come with its own set of financial benefits
1:16:02
and constraints. And which probably will include a some
1:16:06
form of a social credit score. But listen to this and listen
1:16:10
for the tell.
1:16:11
Unknown: Let's close on Twitter, before getting to another couple
1:16:15
of companies I've heard that you run the vision you're building
1:16:19
towards, I think you've called it x or the everything app. Tell
1:16:22
us about it. Beyond just improving the app, this
1:16:25
Adam Curry: is just the setup question. Tell us what you
1:16:27
really want to do with with Twitter, cuz I've heard about it
1:16:30
being x or something like that. vertising?
1:16:33
Unknown: And what will we be able to do on Twitter in your in
1:16:36
your grandest vision,
1:16:39
x x icon. So I think it's possible to create a very
1:16:47
powerful finance experience basically. Like, like Pay Pal is
1:16:56
kind of like a halfway version of what I think could be done in
1:17:02
finance. And so you want to be like, let's say, like, you want
1:17:08
to be able to send money easily, from one account on X slash
1:17:12
Twitter to another account, effortlessly with one click. You
1:17:18
want to be able to earn interest on the money, you want to be
1:17:22
able to have debt. So you can set your interest can go
1:17:27
negative. I mean, I basically, I think it's possible to become
1:17:32
the biggest financial institution in the world.
1:17:36
Just by providing people with convenient payment options. We
1:17:42
don't have the time to go into it in detail here, except
1:17:47
we just make the app more and more useful. People will use it
1:17:53
more. And it'll be great. I mean, you'll see.
1:17:59
Adam Curry: So I have never heard anyone say this. So he
1:18:04
specifically said, you'll be able to earn interest if you
1:18:07
have your money in Twitter. And you can also go into debt with
1:18:11
negative interest rate. I've only heard that in the context
1:18:16
of a government controls. bank account, like Central Bank
1:18:22
digital currency, but it is going into debt. Why does that?
1:18:27
Why does he say Yeah, that'll be negative interest rates.
1:18:35
John C Dvorak: I have no idea.
1:18:40
Adam Curry: Something's up with that.
1:18:41
John C Dvorak: It sounds like a free form. You know, I should
1:18:43
get a copy of that and then edit it. So we can hear again, Musk
1:18:48
trying to speak which seems harder and harder for him to do
1:18:51
day by day. Get a simple sentence out is almost
1:18:55
impossible.
1:18:55
Unknown: I know. I know. I know.
1:18:59
John C Dvorak: Huh? Well, if you want to take a breather, I have
1:19:04
a nice clip. Since you brought up Tik Tok a while ago. I have a
1:19:12
clip of a woman who is got the multiple personality disorder.
1:19:17
Adam Curry: Oh, is she a listener?
1:19:20
John C Dvorak: No, she's a tick tock woman.
1:19:23
Adam Curry: Oh, wait a minute hold on us. I keep forgetting to
1:19:25
do this when we have a tick I gotta set that up. Now we need
1:19:31
to the Tick Tock jingle
1:19:32
John C Dvorak: tock tock tick tock Okay, now that short little
1:19:40
jingle is better than all of the after show.
1:19:43
Adam Curry: Yeah, okay. I wasn't even going to bring this up. But
1:19:46
John is really out of sorts today. He feels that the end of
1:19:49
show mixers are no good. They suck then it's not anything the
1:19:53
way it's supposed to be. It should be songs parody songs,
1:19:58
which are very hard to do, which we Got a lot of during the
1:20:00
lockdown but you just hate everything that we have for to
1:20:03
everything you hate it all. It's horrible.
1:20:06
John C Dvorak: There's not one mix in the entire collection.
1:20:11
Adam Curry: John at the vorak.org If you agree with him,
1:20:15
though, they
1:20:15
John C Dvorak: will all be sent the same Yeah, yeah, yeah give
1:20:17
Adam bad time. So here's the classic. And she is a member of
1:20:27
a did to club which is the disturbance, some sort of idea
1:20:30
you look it up. It's a multiple personality disorder. So one of
1:20:33
the acronyms, but she's that doesn't have different
1:20:36
personalities. She changed. She's a shape Shapeshifter by
1:20:42
all intents and purposes, let's listen to her.
1:20:45
Unknown: Hi, my name is Tempest. I'm a member of a DI D system
1:20:48
and several people and asked how to use the new products that I
1:20:52
use. So here's a quick guide. So I use they them pronouns, but
1:20:57
primarily I use Z them as themself. Now this is a little
1:21:03
bit different from the other is the pronoun which is z 00. So
1:21:11
the G that I use is more related to see him. I'm a gender I don't
1:21:18
really have any kind of gender identity, but I have a masculine
1:21:22
body and her world and I am more masculine leaning, in terms of
1:21:27
like self expression and compliments that I like things
1:21:30
like that. And like Cameron and Avery in our system, the not
1:21:35
having a gender thing for me specifically is related to the
1:21:40
fact that I shapeshifted to a bird. So the other birds also
1:21:43
use Neo pronouns because they don't connect to gender in a
1:21:49
human way, specifically, they don't connect to not having a
1:21:53
gender in the same way that a human would connect to not
1:21:56
having a gender. So it's not just the fact that we're non
1:21:59
binary. It's the fact that we're not entirely human. So these
1:22:04
them are gender neutral and singular. And you can use them
1:22:08
and listen Vince just like he would use he him acceptance with
1:22:13
X's and z's found. And that's really it. It doesn't mean
1:22:16
anything specific. It's not some complicated usage. It's just an
1:22:23
alternative. I do very much prefers these them. But they
1:22:28
them is also fine and I won't be offended if you only use them
1:22:31
for me. But please do try to use them.
1:22:35
Adam Curry: Yeah, I'm in total agreement. Now. I think tick
1:22:37
tock should be banned from the United States.
1:22:38
John C Dvorak: Let's just see shapeshifts to do a Berea. What
1:22:41
kind of date is that Chinese getting from these people? How
1:22:45
many shapeshifters that shape shift into a bird do we have on
1:22:50
our platform?
1:22:52
Adam Curry: It's the influence campaign. We need more bird
1:22:55
people bird ladies.
1:22:56
John C Dvorak: So she has di D dissociative identity disorder?
1:23:01
No. Which is what she said it was a glow group. She's not by
1:23:05
herself. She's with other girls, or whatever. They are birds.
1:23:09
They're not people. They're half human. Mental this mental health
1:23:14
condition someone with di D has multiple distinct personalities.
1:23:18
Wow. And hers are human and bird. I'd like to see that and
1:23:25
it's
1:23:25
Adam Curry: what is di D stands for?
1:23:27
John C Dvorak: Dissociative Identity Disorder.
1:23:32
Adam Curry: Well, now you bring that up. I have a disorder I'd
1:23:33
like to discuss.
1:23:36
John C Dvorak: Pod Yes,
1:23:37
Adam Curry: pod. Pod pod pod speeding use disorder.
1:23:43
John C Dvorak: You're gonna stay on this even? I think you've
1:23:46
gotten people convinced.
1:23:48
Adam Curry: But I but I there's some important things. Did you
1:23:50
know for instance, as Tonya tells us that at the State
1:23:57
Capitol in Denver, proposed bills are read at 1.5 speed
1:24:03
before members vote on them. I think that's a problem.
1:24:10
John C Dvorak: I think so to Sarah's thunder, Sarah explains
1:24:15
a line does
1:24:16
Adam Curry: and this may be happening in other state houses.
1:24:19
Sarah says I'm so happy you've talked about this I have a very
1:24:23
bad habit of listening to everything sped up. I did notice
1:24:26
quite a long time ago when listening to the show while I
1:24:28
was cooking supper that I felt extremely anxious. And all my
1:24:32
movements were very quick and as becoming very impatient with all
1:24:35
of my tasks. I slowed it down to one point 25 That helped a lot
1:24:38
and I'm going to try to bring it down to normal since the
1:24:41
evidence has been supporting my thoughts. garbage man, Mitch.
1:24:48
He's also coming back from pod speeding from his pod. He said
1:24:52
the truck is loud and I wasn't keeping up. So I started
1:24:54
listening at 1.3x I started getting impatient with my family
1:24:57
and particularly my young kids who have a hard time Express
1:25:00
seeing themselves and getting to the point. My wife keenly made
1:25:02
the same observation. We are saving or creating lives twice a
1:25:08
week with this. Do not maybe
1:25:10
John C Dvorak: this accounts for people who listen to the Ben
1:25:13
Shapiro show at any speed
1:25:15
Adam Curry: being exactly. Or Russell Brand for that matter.
1:25:22
He's also very touch at 1.5 1.25 By the way, I did not know this.
1:25:28
The British people do not like Brussel Russell Brand
1:25:32
John C Dvorak: deal he's found a home
1:25:34
Adam Curry: I mean, there's so this just article the New
1:25:38
Statesman. Their title of their article was we have lost Russell
1:25:43
Brand. We have lost him meaning that he's just become a populist
1:25:50
nut job. But one of our one of our producers, yes, one of our
1:25:55
producers here says and this is Sarah who and now she says she's
1:26:00
very tuned into the news she sends me two to four to five
1:26:04
emails a week that have just a whole rundown mainly of UK NEWS.
1:26:09
Nobody likes Russell Brand here and she just go ahead and put it
1:26:14
in the show notes goes on and on and on. And this happens
1:26:17
sometimes in the UK specifically No Who else the Brits hate. Phil
1:26:22
Collins. Phil Collins cannot buy an appearance anymore in the UK.
1:26:28
Why? Because of nanny gate he he started an affair with his nanny
1:26:36
and then this came out when his house burned down or something
1:26:39
and in the nanny were running away I don't remember the exact
1:26:42
story but because of that they they really despise Phil Collins
1:26:46
he's a horrible man poor they don't remember why it was so
1:26:48
long ago horrible man horrible man. Yeah. But that which brings
1:26:55
me to the the answer which we did not understand the non
1:26:59
responsive remember he was arguing with your buddy there
1:27:02
Heilmann on the Bill Maher show and he was going to give an
1:27:08
example of of how MSNBC lies. And he gave the example of the
1:27:16
ivermectin which is more a CNN example. But okay, we'll give it
1:27:19
to him. I'm sure they said it. And John Heilemann was going,
1:27:22
nonresponsive. Yeah, that is a term only only used in court. A
1:27:34
courtroom or a deposition where the witness has to answer the
1:27:36
lawyers question. If an answer evades or does not relate to the
1:27:39
question, the lawyer can say, Objection, non responsive. So
1:27:44
what this was doing is Heilmann, who is not a lawyer, as far as I
1:27:49
know, was just being a douche. Now trying to put him in this
1:27:54
place using some highfalutin word or term, non responsive.
1:28:00
And it just, it just accentuates that you really should not be
1:28:04
talking to him anymore. The guy's lost.
1:28:07
John C Dvorak: We're on that same show. I pulled a clip that
1:28:10
we didn't play that was I thought was interesting. All
1:28:14
right, which was mayor, Bill Maher talking to Bernie Sanders
1:28:21
about the word equity.
1:28:23
Adam Curry: Yeah, we did not I don't know why neither of us,
1:28:25
but we both seen it, but neither neither was pulled it, which is
1:28:28
odd. I
1:28:28
John C Dvorak: don't know why, but whatever. This is so silly.
1:28:31
I play the longer version of it, but the main part of it which he
1:28:35
says, You know what equity means? And Bernie says no.
1:28:40
Unknown: Right. I got the clip here. Dei, are we confusing
1:28:44
equality of opportunity with trying to guarantee equity and
1:28:47
outcomes? Okay, that's interesting, because I think
1:28:50
this word equity has come into the language in the last few
1:28:53
years and before that, we didn't hear it a lot. And I think a lot
1:28:56
of people hear equity and they hear a quality that it's the
1:28:59
same word and it's not the same word in the same concept. So how
1:29:04
would you differentiate between equity and equality?
1:29:07
Well, the quality we talked about I don't know what the
1:29:12
answer to that is coming to think that you know, equality is
1:29:17
equality of opportunity. All right, we live in a society we
1:29:20
want all people right to have whatever color your skin equity
1:29:24
I think is more than guarantee of outcome. Is it not? I think
1:29:29
so. I think that's okay. So which you can which side you
1:29:31
come down on? Oh,
1:29:33
Adam Curry: equality. Equality. Yep. Goodbye Bernie.
1:29:38
John C Dvorak: So he's never was read the memo. He's completely
1:29:43
off on his own as Bernie guy.
1:29:45
Adam Curry: Yeah. Yeah. Poor guy. We got railroaded there and
1:29:48
Bill and Bill Maher's even trying to be detailed. He's
1:29:50
trying to be gentle with them. Well, I think it means this
1:29:52
Bernie. I think that I think it means more like outcome
1:29:56
oriented, doesn't it? Speaking of I gotta go Very nice email
1:30:00
from one of our pilot producers you know, there's been so much
1:30:04
talk about you know, we've had a lot of close calls and you know
1:30:12
things are definitely happening in in aviation and he says it is
1:30:19
rampant that if you want to be it doesn't even matter what your
1:30:23
qualifications are if you want to be a pilot in today's world
1:30:28
and it does and you know you have to have a minimum 1500
1:30:31
hours on Jet although Southwest has has reduced that somewhat if
1:30:39
you want to even be considered you have to be either a member
1:30:43
of the Women in Aerospace club so there's all these conferences
1:30:49
and the conferences where the airline's go to hire people but
1:30:56
the conferences are not for you know straight white guys, you
1:31:00
know, who who have a lot of hours might have been in the
1:31:03
military. No, no, no. There's the gay Pilots Association the
1:31:07
Women in Aviation, the black Pilots Association, so you
1:31:11
literally have to go to every single one of these either
1:31:14
pretend to be gay pretend to be black or pretend to be a woman
1:31:17
which is a real opportunity out there. Otherwise you just won't
1:31:21
get hired it's horrible
1:31:29
John C Dvorak: Well, that's the meritocracy is down the tubes.
1:31:33
Yeah, well, this
1:31:33
Adam Curry: is exactly what you get. Then you get and you get
1:31:36
crashes. Yes, apart. Well, and maybe that's all intentional
1:31:40
because of how long have they not wanted to have the Next Gen
1:31:44
system where it's pilotless as an interesting theory, we don't
1:31:48
need pilots. Oh, look up there crashing it's gotten so bad we
1:31:51
need these pilots and where do you get that? Where do you get
1:31:56
these type of systems from from the military industrial complex.
1:32:02
It's all for the war machine. Sadly,
1:32:08
John C Dvorak: you got to I do have a couple of random clips. I
1:32:10
want to I wouldn't mind playing Sure.
1:32:13
Adam Curry: We got some time the donation segment is going to be
1:32:15
pretty short actually.
1:32:18
John C Dvorak: By the same as usual. Let's go to you know we
1:32:21
talked about Ukraine a little while ago. We haven't heard from
1:32:23
this woman for a while Claire Daly you know her she's the
1:32:27
she's the outspoken Irish woman in front of the EU parliament is
1:32:31
taking the place of Nigel Farage, haranguing everybody,
1:32:36
Adam Curry: but she does it a little better. I like what
1:32:38
Claire Daly does cheat. She, you know, we were tired of Nigel I
1:32:42
like what Claire is doing.
1:32:43
John C Dvorak: Well, in the Nigel has been out of the
1:32:44
picture for a while he was at the CPAC thing. He wasn't even
1:32:47
good.
1:32:47
Adam Curry: Oh, goodness. It didn't even see a clip of him.
1:32:49
That's how bad he was. Okay.
1:32:52
John C Dvorak: Yeah, he's Yeah. All right. Here's Claire.
1:32:55
Unknown: Thank you President. One year on us. The war in
1:32:58
Ukraine continues, when voices everywhere should be calling for
1:33:02
a ceasefire and peace. This resolution is driving us in the
1:33:06
opposite direction. So I proudly voted against it. It pedals the
1:33:11
latest slide that this is not now about defending Ukraine.
1:33:15
It's about Ukraine must win. What does that even mean? Last
1:33:20
April, there was a deal on the table, which would have seen
1:33:23
Russia withdraw in return for Ukrainian non NATO membership.
1:33:28
But Ukraine's western friends killer clown, Boris Johnson, and
1:33:32
NATO rocked into town and told them to keep fighting. The
1:33:37
result, six cities devastated four provinces illegally annexed
1:33:43
108 billion euros in age, which the people of Ukraine are going
1:33:48
to have to pay back over decades, global food and energy
1:33:52
crisis is this winning. Ordinary people don't win in wars.
1:33:58
They're cannon fodder in the gains of others. And you can
1:34:01
shout glory in here all your life, but there's no glory in
1:34:05
the grave. And only graves come out of this folly. It's time for
1:34:10
people and the silent majority all over Europe to take to the
1:34:14
streets this weekend. And demand peace and an end to the war.
1:34:18
Adam Curry: Oh, is that this weekend? Is that when the
1:34:20
meeting is? Yeah, I think so. Well, we won't see any of it,
1:34:24
but it goes. I mean, you saw the protests in France regarding the
1:34:30
the pension age.
1:34:32
John C Dvorak: Yeah, two years, by the way, they've just changed
1:34:34
it at all. They're gonna jack it up a bit, but not up from 62
1:34:38
Right now it's 62. But they want to move to 64 and they're not
1:34:42
putting up with changing anything.
1:34:44
Adam Curry: And in the US are talking about moving it to 70
1:34:48
John C Dvorak: Yeah, that makes more sense.
1:34:50
Adam Curry: And no one's doing it and no, oh, Yan was
1:34:54
John C Dvorak: whenever I knew I'd get screwed did my because
1:34:56
my wife is like in this kind of situation where she gets her
1:35:00
Have she managed to she latched on early? And what is the
1:35:05
rationale say, oh, yeah, we're gonna get screwed the baby
1:35:08
boomers get all the money, you know, instead of doing something
1:35:12
about it? Well,
1:35:13
Adam Curry: I mean, because I think you can start, you can
1:35:16
start drawing down on your social security at 62. I believe
1:35:20
that you get, I think so yeah, significantly less than a
1:35:23
smaller amount of money which, like $1,200 a month, which, you
1:35:27
John C Dvorak: know, it depends on how much it can vary from
1:35:29
person to person and how much they put in to the system.
1:35:32
Adam Curry: Well, believe me, I'm gonna get $0 per month.
1:35:35
Yeah. See,
1:35:35
John C Dvorak: there you go. This is you. This is an example
1:35:38
of what we hear this instead of rioting in the streets.
1:35:42
Adam Curry: Oh, no, I didn't pay enough in. I only paid in during
1:35:47
the MTV days. I mean, do you automatically pay in when you
1:35:50
pay your taxes? Does that all happen automatically?
1:35:52
John C Dvorak: That depends sometimes, yes. But it's part
1:35:55
Adam Curry: of FICA if I'm not mistaken.
1:35:59
John C Dvorak: I don't know about that.
1:36:00
Adam Curry: Well, I go, I'm just going to presume that a
1:36:03
John C Dvorak: mile and know what you're gonna get if you
1:36:05
haven't already looked it up. You could be getting two grand,
1:36:09
you don't know?
1:36:09
Adam Curry: Well, Tina is gonna get 1200 a month at 62. And
1:36:13
she's saying, okay, so what if I wait until 65? How, how much
1:36:18
will the dollar be devalued? At that point? Should I take start
1:36:21
taking stuff earlier and invested in something? Which I
1:36:24
think is probably the way to go? Yeah. But anyway,
1:36:29
John C Dvorak: I have mixed feelings about maybe took out
1:36:31
early. Yeah, she did a calculation with a bean counter.
1:36:35
And it turned out that you could get you know, you unless you
1:36:38
live to be 95,
1:36:39
Adam Curry: which I'm planning on 98. Yeah.
1:36:42
John C Dvorak: You should probably not take it out early
1:36:44
then.
1:36:45
Adam Curry: Okay. What was the other protest? Oh, yeah.
1:36:50
Germany's also protesting. They don't want you they don't want
1:36:52
any more refugees from anywhere. Not from Ukraine, not from
1:36:58
anywhere. No, we don't want it then. No, no, no, Europe is it's
1:37:03
a tinderbox. I'm telling you, it's a tinderbox. People are
1:37:06
gonna start getting really, really angry about things.
1:37:10
John C Dvorak: So I have another clip. That's kind of funny. This
1:37:13
is we haven't heard from this guy for a while. I think he's in
1:37:16
Texas. And I think this was at the Texas Senate. And I don't
1:37:20
think this is an old one. It might be but it just showed up.
1:37:24
And, but it's the same kind of thing he likes to do. This is
1:37:28
Alex stringer. And Alex stringers, the guy who likes to
1:37:33
go before city consoles and bitch and moan about stuff, and
1:37:36
then slip in a bunch of crazy comments.
1:37:39
Adam Curry: Is that stringer or Stein? Alex? Alex stringer is a
1:37:43
different guy.
1:37:45
John C Dvorak: I'm pretty sure it's Alex stringer. This one.
1:37:48
Right, but
1:37:48
Adam Curry: I'm saying Alex, the guy who does all the all the
1:37:51
crazy stuff is Alex Stein 99.
1:37:54
John C Dvorak: And this is not Alex Stein. This is Alex
1:37:56
stringer. Alex stringer
1:37:58
Adam Curry: is a guy in Austin. He's the guy who ran for mayor.
1:38:01
I actually voted for him. He's the pedicab guy.
1:38:06
John C Dvorak: Well, that could be that maybe that didn't maybe
1:38:08
he's not the guy goes from place to place now. But he does pull
1:38:12
one here in Austin. Wearing a mask, so you can't really see
1:38:17
who it is. And I know it went on forever. I only clipped the big
1:38:22
I cut it off where I thought it's lacked being as funny.
1:38:27
Unknown: Good afternoon, Senators. My name is Alex
1:38:30
stringer. I'm speaking in support of Senate Bill 287.
1:38:34
Because, listen, we got to protect our safety, and we need
1:38:37
to protect our kids. And you know, we got to be honest here.
1:38:41
Okay. In order to do that, we got to realize that the greatest
1:38:43
threat to our safety is our fellow Americans. And this is
1:38:47
especially true about these Magga hat wearing terrorists who
1:38:50
infest our state with their hateful rhetoric, right? Listen,
1:38:54
I'm triple vaccinated and boosted and I've gotten COVID
1:38:56
Four times, okay. You want to know why? Because these people
1:38:59
they refuse to wear a mask and they refuse to get vaccinated
1:39:02
and you have to understand these people, they could have killed
1:39:04
me, and they wouldn't even care. You want to know why? Because
1:39:07
they are murderers and they are terrorists. All right. And then
1:39:10
let's talk about my wife. She's immunocompromised with stage
1:39:13
five testicular cancer. She has left the house in three years.
1:39:18
Because of these Maga Q and ons, alright. And these people that
1:39:20
are murderers, they deserve to spend the rest of their lives in
1:39:23
prison. And this is how we need to treat these people. And I
1:39:26
understand that, you know, I'm really glad that we have good
1:39:28
Republicans, you know, like Senator Hoffman and David
1:39:30
Phelan, and you guys fully agree with me on this. Look, I took my
1:39:34
five year old son Karla, to a drag show last weekend in
1:39:37
Dallas, and we are regulars at our schools drag queen story
1:39:40
hour and the drag queens and minor attracted persons
1:39:42
performing for our kids. They are amazing people and they are
1:39:45
role models. You know, my son Carl even started transitioning.
1:39:49
When sprinkles the drag queen sat on his lap and gave him her
1:39:54
thong after the performance stains at all. And when these
1:39:58
Republicans want to take the joy away from My five year old, it's
1:40:01
only because they want to exterminate the LGBTQ community
1:40:04
because our hearts are filled with hatred.
1:40:07
Adam Curry: Yeah, stringers. Good guy. He's Yes, he is the
1:40:10
pedicab driver in Austin. And his platform was put a dome over
1:40:16
Austin and give the teachers flame throwers. Which I thought
1:40:21
was a great platform and I voted for him. as well. While we're on
1:40:25
that then crazy, crazy vaccine mandates, boosters masks. This
1:40:31
is just so poetically beautiful. You have been complaining
1:40:35
throughout COVID masks are not a good idea. Why because criminals
1:40:40
will use them to Jack stuff up took a while. But you're right.
1:40:44
That's not what's happening all throughout New York City. And
1:40:47
now we have a reverse mandate, no masks mandated. We're not
1:40:52
asking
1:40:52
Unknown: the bodega to tell the person when they walk in Hey, so
1:40:55
you have to take off your mask. There's a sign at the door that
1:40:58
the bodega Association helped us create. Let's be clear on it.
1:41:03
The Bodega Association helped us create a sign that says please
1:41:07
Upon entering, remove your mask, and you can put it back on. What
1:41:10
about garments. Think about this one moment, as I looked at some
1:41:14
of the videos, I looked at about 30 videos of people who
1:41:17
committed the robberies in in Canada smoke shops, and in
1:41:22
bodegas. But I use one of those videos, you saw the person
1:41:26
inside walking around with his mask on. And if you did a real
1:41:30
analysis of it, you see that, hey, this guy is up to
1:41:33
something. So if you're refusing to remove your mask, don't
1:41:38
confront the person. But now you'll say wait a minute. Now
1:41:42
let me pay attention to this person that is in this store
1:41:45
lingered around with the mask we got we've gotten so used to the
1:41:48
mass that we don't realize this is a large volume of people that
1:41:51
are winning, not because the COVID because they're criminals.
1:41:56
Adam Curry: No kidding.
1:41:59
John C Dvorak: Well, that remains. There's another thing
1:42:01
going around yo DC had a they tried to soften a bunch of
1:42:05
rules.
1:42:06
Adam Curry: I have a clip. I have
1:42:07
John C Dvorak: I had two clips because I have they usually get
1:42:10
a clip with the cop.
1:42:11
Adam Curry: No, no, no, I got home on the second because it's
1:42:15
very short. It'll probably set up your clip on. Yes, here it
1:42:19
is. This one
1:42:22
Unknown: ally. Let me start with you. Because right now I believe
1:42:26
curry Shan Pierre is really struggling to explain this
1:42:30
decision of the president who is for DC statehood for DC home
1:42:35
rule, but clearly is nervous about the politics of this. This
1:42:41
crime bill that DC city council passed over the objections of
1:42:45
their own mayor.
1:42:48
Yeah, actually, up until this point, the White House had just
1:42:50
said that they were not in favor of the House voting to get this
1:42:55
crime bill but they hadn't really talked about the
1:42:57
possibility of Biden of President Biden vetoing it. Now
1:43:01
he's coming out and sort of explaining why the reason behind
1:43:04
his reasoning he tech, he tweeted just a short time ago,
1:43:07
quote, I support DC statehood and home rule. But I don't
1:43:12
support some of the changes DC Council put forward over the
1:43:15
mayor's objections such as lowering penalties for
1:43:18
carjackings. If the Senate votes to overturn what DC council did,
1:43:22
I will sign it. This is sort of a political test for him under
1:43:27
shows not only as you mentioned that he is in favor of keeping
1:43:32
that home rule that unique position by Congress to sort of
1:43:35
meddle in the affairs of the DC city city council's and DC
1:43:39
voters. But it also shows ahead of 2024 where President Biden
1:43:45
could be going with this you can imagine had he chose to veto
1:43:49
this crime bill that's expected to pass in the Senate when it
1:43:52
does come up next sometime next.
1:43:54
Adam Curry: Did she say he chose she said
1:43:57
Unknown: ahead of 2024 where President Biden could be going
1:44:01
with this you can imagine had he chose to veto this crime bill
1:44:06
that's expected to pass in the Senate when it does come up next
1:44:09
sometime next week. You can imagine how much Republicans
1:44:13
would have seized on that and use that 2024 for possible
1:44:16
campaign as
1:44:17
Adam Curry: alright so there's a lot of thing going on a lot of
1:44:19
things going on with this one is with DC statehood, which we
1:44:21
should probably explain I don't think many people understand it.
1:44:24
Yeah, they
1:44:24
John C Dvorak: keep wanting to turn dc into a stake so they get
1:44:27
an extra two senators. Democrat that's just to get two
1:44:31
Democratic senators to pack the the Senate and get one you get
1:44:37
one House of Representatives.
1:44:39
Adam Curry: You get that horrible woman. Norton homes. No
1:44:42
nor horns. Oh, I met her man. She's a scammer. Ah, she's like
1:44:48
she was. I had a very bad experience with her a long time
1:44:52
ago.
1:44:52
John C Dvorak: I think she I think her whole political career
1:44:56
began with masturbation clubs.
1:44:59
Adam Curry: I met her In the context of I think Obama care.
1:45:05
And he or she, she co sponsored a movie that I kind of got roped
1:45:10
into to goes to this premiere. And is this guy named something,
1:45:15
Wendell? And he was it turns out he's just a huge shill for the
1:45:18
for the, for the medical community. And she was all in
1:45:24
but anyway, continue
1:45:27
John C Dvorak: back to the crime bill. Here's the Here's the
1:45:28
rundown. This is from I believe this is from Matt NTD.
1:45:36
Unknown: Washington DC is police chief says to keep homicides
1:45:39
down. The district needs to keep bad guys with guns in jail. He
1:45:43
spoke alongside Washington's Mayor about public safety.
1:45:47
Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Conte also said the average
1:45:50
homicide suspect has been arrested 11 times prior to them
1:45:54
committing a homicide. County said if bad guys are in jail,
1:45:58
they won't be in Washington community shooting people. Last
1:46:01
month Democratic Congresswoman Angie Craig decried the
1:46:04
district's crime laws after she was assaulted by a homeless man.
1:46:07
She said she was his 13th victim and he was committing crime for
1:46:11
almost a decade. She said in many cases he received no
1:46:15
punishment for his crimes. DC City Council was forced to pull
1:46:19
a bill that would have made the district even softer on crime.
1:46:23
Adam Curry: I do have an issue with this report. Why is it
1:46:27
always bad guys? Women don't commit crimes.
1:46:33
John C Dvorak: Well, it was you know, this was clipped yesterday
1:46:36
on International Women's Day. So they don't do that on
1:46:40
International Women's Day. Got it. I mean, why? Why even quoted
1:46:43
cop lists. Let's listen to this guy who's the chief of police.
1:46:48
And Mimi sent me this and she says, you know if this was a
1:46:51
white chief, they wouldn't be able to say what he's about to
1:46:54
say,
1:46:55
Unknown: well, we got to do we really want to see homicides go
1:46:57
down is keep bad guys with guns in jail because when they in
1:47:01
jail, they can't be in community shooting people. So when people
1:47:04
talk about what we're going to do different what we should do
1:47:07
different what we need to do different. That's the thing that
1:47:09
we need to do different. We need to keep violent people in jail.
1:47:12
Right now. The average homicide suspect the average homicide
1:47:16
suspect has been arrested 11 times prior to them committing a
1:47:21
homicide. That is a problem. That is a problem.
1:47:25
Adam Curry: Wow. I have a thought on this. So Austin right
1:47:29
now is in deep trouble with their police. They were uh,
1:47:33
Austin, Texas, big proponents of defund the police they defunded
1:47:37
the police to the tune of $150 million. They did not negotiate
1:47:42
in good faith for the new police contract, which means that
1:47:45
cadets, there's no cadets, there's no new inflow of cops.
1:47:51
Right now. They are over 200 police officers short. At the
1:47:55
end of this month, the current contract expires they have not
1:48:00
been able to negotiate a new contract with the police. There
1:48:04
will be an additional 90 officers who will be retiring
1:48:08
and I don't know if you've seen the videos, Austin, but crime is
1:48:12
rampant that just taken over intersections, right where we
1:48:15
used to live to do burnouts and drag races. There was a Suzanne
1:48:20
Santos said that her neighbors had been broken into in broad
1:48:24
daylight. So this is happening all across America. And I think
1:48:31
it's very possible that we're going back to 2024. Let's go
1:48:36
back to 1994. The 1994 Crime Bill championed by Senator
1:48:43
Joseph Biden, this is when we had the predators remember that?
1:48:48
Put it on the on the cover of Time Magazine, the little kid
1:48:51
all we got dead nine year old predators. I have a feeling that
1:48:56
they've created the problem. We've got the reaction and the
1:48:58
solution is yeah, now let's lock them all up again. Yep, I agree.
1:49:02
Lock them up. Lock them up. Especially the black ones like
1:49:05
bigger jails. Yep. Yep. Which of course everyone's you know,
1:49:10
invested in Bill Gates and isn't what's his face here in Omaha?
1:49:16
Isn't he invested in the Corrections Corporation of
1:49:20
America?
1:49:20
John C Dvorak: Yeah. The name of that company?
1:49:23
Adam Curry: Of course of course they gotta hide it but you do. I
1:49:26
think it's coming. I think we're getting a 2024 crime bill and
1:49:30
everyone's going to be on board with it and massively refund the
1:49:34
police and the jails and it's going to be a crackdown like
1:49:37
you've never seen before. And it's gonna could
1:49:39
John C Dvorak: be as can be avoided by creating a shanty
1:49:44
towns.
1:49:49
Adam Curry: JCD for President everybody. Great idea. Speaking
1:49:56
of law, Ron DeSantis now on my hit list Just this morning
1:50:00
Unknown: Governor Ron DeSantis is floating a new offer to bring
1:50:03
tennis star Novak Djokovic into the country to play in a Florida
1:50:06
tournament.
1:50:07
I would run a boat from the Bahamas here for him I would do
1:50:11
that. 100% never did you said
1:50:14
Adam Curry: you'd never hear that it's 100% 100% Am I would
1:50:19
do that
1:50:19
Unknown: 100% Joe KOVITCH never got the COVID vaccine and is
1:50:23
therefore barred from entering the US. DeSantis wrote to
1:50:26
President Biden this week asking for a waiver to allow Joe
1:50:30
KOVITCH to play at the Miami open this month, saying The time
1:50:33
has come to give up the fiction that the COVID vaccines remain a
1:50:36
necessary tool to promote public health to Santas a potential
1:50:39
2024 presidential candidate acknowledges the boatlift idea
1:50:43
may not work, but I think his
1:50:45
people are looking at it. And I'm not sure that's the way they
1:50:50
want to come into the into the country which I understand. I
1:50:54
think it'd be a great moment but you know,
1:50:56
and the CDC website confirms the vaccine requirement applies to
1:50:59
travelers by sea, as well as by air we expect
1:51:02
everyone to abide by our country's rule whether as a
1:51:05
participant or spectator.
1:51:10
world's number one tennis player missed last year is Australian
1:51:13
Open due to his vaccination status. He has said he'd rather
1:51:16
skip major tournaments than get vaccinated. Are
1:51:19
you prepared to forego the chance to be the greatest player
1:51:24
to ever picked up a racket? Statistically, because you feel
1:51:27
so strongly about this job? Yes.
1:51:29
Adam Curry: And you know, props to Joe Joe. Joe kovich. He's
1:51:35
principled, he's principles. I know. I agree with that. But But
1:51:39
Governor DeSantis piece of crap I don't want to be like all
1:51:43
emotional about it. But I cannot have people come into visit me
1:51:47
here until at least May when I'm sure they'll extend it again
1:51:50
because of this bullcrap requirement. And we're the, I
1:51:53
think, the last country in the world that has it and instead of
1:51:57
being presidential, and DeSantis doing here's what you could have
1:52:00
done. We need to drop this for all people just like on the
1:52:03
southern border. Or you may be you should have said hey, you
1:52:06
know what, why don't you just go to Mexico and just walk across
1:52:08
the border, because that you can do that I in
1:52:12
John C Dvorak: fact, that would have been making that suggestion
1:52:15
instead of you know, piloting a boat
1:52:18
Adam Curry: from the Bahamas, the Bahamas or whatever,
1:52:21
wherever.
1:52:22
John C Dvorak: But just telling him to mock the situation over
1:52:25
the southern border. But no, he did. I was poorly done poorly
1:52:30
done. I agree. I mean, I hate his guts because of it. But
1:52:33
yeah,
1:52:33
Adam Curry: I do. I'm very mad about good for you. I'm very I'm
1:52:36
very mad about this. It's It's insane. That that is still in
1:52:40
place. And there's an end there's the only answer we get
1:52:43
well, we what's important have everyone vaccinated a really
1:52:47
John C Dvorak: doesn't the vaccine does if the vaccine
1:52:49
worked.
1:52:50
Adam Curry: It would maybe would do something with it. vaccine
1:52:56
doesn't work. There's a there's a new avenue for for vaccinating
1:52:59
children. There's a new way to do it. Now. Why is this
1:53:04
happening?
1:53:06
John C Dvorak: To nasal
1:53:07
Adam Curry: Tennessee, no, Tennessee. Now this is not the
1:53:09
COVID vaccination. This is another one of our favorites
1:53:12
HPV.
1:53:14
Unknown: It's the Republicans in the state house that are passing
1:53:18
that a lot of this stuff. You know, last year we had a bill in
1:53:21
Tennessee by my republican and Senator that introduced HPV
1:53:25
vaccinations for dentists to give minors without consent,
1:53:29
parental consent. I'm thinking that says Tennessee even
1:53:32
California doesn't let dentists do that.
1:53:35
Adam Curry: No, they will. It's a great idea. I'm just gonna
1:53:38
numb me up here for a second. Wow. Yeah, big, big foreign
1:53:46
blue. I'm
1:53:46
John C Dvorak: gonna give you a clip of the day for that
1:53:47
discovery. Thank you. That's unbelievable that they would
1:53:55
even and it was Republicans. Yeah. Oh, yeah.
1:53:59
Adam Curry: it big. You're just Big Pharma. Big Pharma has us by
1:54:02
the balls. You can't fight it. Or we can but Big Pharma is
1:54:08
very, very powerful.
1:54:11
John C Dvorak: You can buy just like unfortunate they've taken
1:54:15
over the media. And so that's problem number one.
1:54:18
Adam Curry: Well, let me give you give you two more phony ads.
1:54:22
You okay, well, I'm going to do this one first, because I want
1:54:25
to have the kicker be the kicker, obviously. So this is
1:54:29
NPR, which you'll hear in a moment is very obvious is NPR.
1:54:34
Unknown: And we're very excited about the mRNA vaccines. You
1:54:38
know why it's the platform, the pandemic help to speed the
1:54:41
development of a new class of vaccines, the mRNA shots against
1:54:45
COVID made by Pfizer and moderna. Now, scientists hope to
1:54:49
create mRNA vaccines against other diseases for which
1:54:52
traditional vaccines have not worked. Can you guess which one
1:54:56
which one is coming? It fits right with your shantytown?
1:54:59
John C Dvorak: Well, there would be A cold vaccine thing
1:55:02
shantytown, man think shanty town shanty town, cholera.
1:55:06
Adam Curry: Close. No, no, that'll be next
1:55:08
Unknown: and Paris and read Eisenman traveled to the
1:55:10
University of Cape Town in South Africa, where they report a
1:55:14
breakthrough against tuberculosis.
1:55:17
mRNA. Vaccines are like a plug and play system, plug and play
1:55:20
system. If you know what proteins on a virus or
1:55:24
bacterium, a person's immune system can latch on to to kill
1:55:27
it. You insert the genetic code for those proteins into the
1:55:31
vaccine.
1:55:32
Adam Curry: And yeah, it'd be great if it worked big on a
1:55:35
boom, you're done.
1:55:36
Unknown: But when it comes to the tuberculosis, bacteria, TB
1:55:39
for short, figuring out what those target proteins should be
1:55:43
is
1:55:43
tricky. Yeah.
1:55:45
Adam Curry: I don't want to play the whole report, because it's
1:55:46
just boring where they found it all. But I love the Plug and
1:55:49
Play platform.
1:55:51
John C Dvorak: Yeah, that's what Malone was discussing in a clip
1:55:54
replay some months back. Yeah. But the CIA, they did these
1:55:58
things, because of the potential for biological warfare, get to
1:56:02
get a quick turnaround. He's something fast. And this, it
1:56:06
would be great. If it worked.
1:56:10
Adam Curry: So we've been talking about ozempic. And how
1:56:14
that is being prescribed by Pete by doctors, for people who are
1:56:19
overweight, obese for a fast, rapid and intense weight loss.
1:56:26
Much of the chagrin of people who actually need this for
1:56:30
diabetes type one, I believe, and so type two. Okay, I could I
1:56:37
could be wrong.
1:56:37
John C Dvorak: Diabetes type one, you need insulin. I'm
1:56:41
sorry,
1:56:41
Adam Curry: you're right, type two. And so they've now broken
1:56:44
it up. And you have the expensive, but I forget the
1:56:50
name, but some other not snappy sounding name with a jingle.
1:56:54
That's that will be prescribed for the type two diabetes, but
1:56:58
the Oh ozempic Now that is of course just for weight loss,
1:57:03
Hollywood's doing it that you've seen the ad campaign. It is all
1:57:07
over the place, everyone can sing it. And now we have an
1:57:12
acquisition.
1:57:13
Unknown: weightwatchers is buying the subscription
1:57:15
telehealth platform sequence making a play in the obesity
1:57:18
drug business. The move would give weightwatchers customers
1:57:21
access to doctors who can write prescriptions for medications
1:57:24
like ozempic, the diabetes drug that can act as an appetite
1:57:27
suppressant, Weight Watchers, executives are touting the
1:57:30
medical weight loss approach.
1:57:32
And what this collaboration will allow us to do is to have a
1:57:37
member enter a pathway and answer questions to assess their
1:57:41
appropriateness.
1:57:42
Important point is that these medications are not instead of a
1:57:47
diet and physical activity program, they're to help you to
1:57:51
comply with a program like that comply,
1:57:54
but we're already seeing a shortage of drugs like ozempic
1:57:58
amid concern about people using it who don't have serious
1:58:01
medical conditions.
1:58:03
Adam Curry: This is what the big pharma did during COVID. This is
1:58:07
this is the the not discussed trick. they polled telehealth so
1:58:12
telehealth doctors, all they have to do is have a
1:58:16
conversation with you on your app. What What's your problem? I
1:58:20
can't get it up. Boom, Viagra. What's your problem? I feel
1:58:25
depressed. Boom, antidepressant. What's your problem? Look at me,
1:58:29
I don't fit on the screen, boom ozempic without seeing the
1:58:33
person in person without any real history knowledge. They
1:58:38
become drug dealers and I I can't accuse them because I
1:58:41
haven't figured it out yet. But I think what is this better
1:58:45
health? The some, some thing that that I hear advertised a
1:58:49
lot on podcast is if you're depressed, if you want to talk
1:58:52
to somebody, I think they may also be prescribing
1:58:54
antidepressants, which of course is the real problem we have.
1:58:59
It's everyone's on a pill. And now you just get up on the
1:59:03
weightwatchers owned telehealth app. Oh man I'm having so I love
1:59:10
the food I have but I'm still I have so many cravings. Oh we
1:59:13
have we can write you subscription prescription for
1:59:16
Olympic. It's incredible. And people have no idea that this is
1:59:21
being done to them. In fact, we should get in on this action. I
1:59:26
don't know how well we can create a telehealth. We got
1:59:30
doctors AAA doing. We can totally have a telehealth app.
1:59:36
And we can prescribe anything we want.
1:59:42
John C Dvorak: Yeah, no. Yeah, no. Yeah, no. Yeah, no,
1:59:46
Adam Curry: it's bad.
1:59:48
John C Dvorak: They get a kicker clip. Is that it?
1:59:50
Adam Curry: No, that's it. I wish I had a kicker. No, I have
1:59:52
other clips. But let me see. Did I have a kicker on that?
1:59:58
John C Dvorak: I have a plane crash clip. That's a good way
2:00:00
It'll lead into the thing. Okay, plane crash always or actually
2:00:03
forget it. Here's a good clip. Just a podcast story.
2:00:06
Adam Curry: Oh goodness. Am I gonna hate it?
2:00:09
Unknown: No. Okay. It was like a scene out of a thriller movie. A
2:00:12
YouTuber just finished recording his podcast. And while he was
2:00:15
sitting against the window at a cafe on Saturday, this happened
2:00:20
because of quiet in here. Just as he uttered those words and
2:00:27
SUV plowed into the glass behind Nathan Reeves, his friend and a
2:00:31
podcast guest, the horrifying moment caught on camera was at
2:00:35
the touts week cafe in Houston. The cafe was filled with more
2:00:38
than a dozen people at that moment. Luckily, no one was
2:00:42
injured. Local police said a woman drove her Chevrolet
2:00:45
through a red light and struck another car before crashing into
2:00:49
the cafe. The video was uploaded to Reeves YouTube channel
2:00:52
November Romeo, and has amassed 10s of 1000s of views
2:00:56
Adam Curry: and I'll do anything for views on that YouTube won't
2:00:58
do anything they can do you think this was an accident?
2:01:03
John C Dvorak: Well, I don't know if anyone wanted to drive a
2:01:04
truck to a plate glass window, wasn't it? i Yeah. Well, I don't
2:01:09
think the reporting was an action but I think that the
2:01:12
Adam Curry: here's what I'll say. A YouTube video is not a
2:01:14
podcast. I agree. That's what I'm gonna say. Okay,
2:01:19
John C Dvorak: with that I'm in agreement with you. And with
2:01:21
that, I'd
2:01:21
Adam Curry: like to thank you for your courage today in the
2:01:23
morning to you the man who put the seat in the killer clown
2:01:26
ladies and gentlemen, please say hello to my friend on the other
2:01:28
end. Mr. John C. Drug All right.
2:01:36
John C Dvorak: morning to you, Mr. Adam curry in the morning
2:01:39
shift to see boots on the ground feet in the air such in the
2:01:41
water and all the games and nights out there in the morning
2:01:43
to
2:01:43
Adam Curry: the trolls and the troll room. Let me count on
2:01:45
right away. standard fare 1863. That's about normal. I think we
2:01:54
haven't gone up haven't gone down. Kind of the same. Would
2:01:57
you say?
2:01:58
John C Dvorak: I think Dettol number may be bogus. I think he
2:02:01
just is produced the same exact number every time is almost the

2:02:20
can't listen, you're missing the best content in the universe. It

always happens in the donation segment. And there's always 5%
2:02:30
of people who drop off because I couldn't see this and come back
2:02:33
up.
2:02:34
John C Dvorak: But why would they drop off in the chat room
2:02:36
of all things because
2:02:37

accident. I click on that DM thing. Yeah, and a bunch of

2:04:28

2:04:32
Adam Curry: Now it's even worse because you can just be going
2:04:35
through your timeline, you may not see the little, the little
2:04:38
icon down below which shows which indicates that it's a
2:04:42
private message. And you can just respond to it and then
2:04:44
before you know, and also people tagging us on on messages on
2:04:48
threads that are 50 messages long about something that we
2:04:53
don't care about, which is which is most law most Follow us there
2:05:01
and of course we there is one conversation which I always
2:05:05
enjoy that's the artists and no agenda artists they always
2:05:08
communicate they're about what they're what they've been making
2:05:10
during listening during the live show. This is part of our value
2:05:13
for value system which works incredibly well for us. Anyone
2:05:16
can replicate it we don't take any creepy corporate money no
2:05:19
commercials, no ads, just it's all from you, the producers who
2:05:23
send us your time talent or treasure and the the talent and
2:05:27
also the time is, is really reflected in what the artists
2:05:31
do. And with that, we want to thank the artists who made the
2:05:35
artwork for episode 1535 We call that pod speeding Yes There you
2:05:40
go. Roger roundy with a just a a fabulous piece we knew it was
2:05:46
going to upset people had no idea would upset so many people.
2:05:51
But this was the art does it does it evokes an emotion and
2:05:56
that's all you really want good batter and
2:05:58
John C Dvorak: this is what I would even consider Roger roundy
2:06:01
art quote unquote
2:06:03
Adam Curry: well it was a good piece
2:06:04
John C Dvorak: I mean, I was it was a graphics piece it was it
2:06:07
was nice. I liked it. Well we both liked it we picked it
2:06:09
Adam Curry: yes it was a you've got vasectomy face and we think
2:06:14
was a very accurate representation of vasectomy face
2:06:20
John C Dvorak: board lesbian young young lesbian
2:06:24
Adam Curry: let's take a look at the other pieces we looked at I
2:06:26
know there was a close second which you used for the
2:06:30
newsletter and that was by was at Taunton Neil named Penny Ben
2:06:35
which was the
2:06:36
John C Dvorak: the hot speeding anxiety was the name of it Yeah,
2:06:39
it was I just liked that piece a lot because the person had
2:06:42
nervous look in the bug eyes and biting their nails is great
2:06:46
Adam Curry: and we would have chosen that had we not chosen
2:06:48
pod speeding as the title
2:06:50
John C Dvorak: which also is exactly correct which also
2:06:53
Adam Curry: eliminate any other of the pretty good pod speeding
2:06:58
images let's see what else we had which you know we had the
2:07:04
the mastermind with the happiness meter we had Thompson
2:07:07
Neil with a no PageSpeed and connoisseur blogger even with a
2:07:11
1.5 with a green X through it then we had some what else do we
2:07:16
have here? Russell Brand. We had Adam curry as governor of Texas
2:07:23
now. We had a What else Oh, the hydrogen being the champagne of
2:07:30
energy. The here's a here's a tip if you have to understand
2:07:34
the art by reading the title of the piece, it's no good. And it
2:07:39
just will not work for us. You know, because we can mouse over
2:07:43
John C Dvorak: work for the audience because they don't know
2:07:45
what the title of the piece is. Yeah,
2:07:47
Adam Curry: I mean what else was there a lot of pointing at Fox
2:07:51
News Liar Liar. It was a lot of pod speed. People liked the pod
2:07:55
speeding stuff it just you know, a lot of champagne stuff. So
2:08:01
yeah, the vasectomy face was so outrageous. And then we just
2:08:06
felt it was time it was time again to to bring this up in the
2:08:09
conversation I would have to say it's one of our last times
2:08:12
because the hate was pretty severe. A lot of people not
2:08:15
digging a lot a lot of victims as we say even on the newsletter
2:08:21
John C Dvorak: yeah the the Yeah, well we we've lost people
2:08:26
from our opinions about Ukraine. And then you know, vasectomy is
2:08:30
is a long thing. So this is a new a new complaint. And I've
2:08:34
got to know today you know, I don't like you guys you're never
2:08:36
gonna get my money because I your stance on EVs.
2:08:42
Adam Curry: I don't think in fact, you've actually we
2:08:45
John C Dvorak: very rarely talked about EVs.
2:08:48
Adam Curry: No, and you've even done reports on different EVs in
2:08:51
the past you would you would get them from the manufacturer. You
2:08:54
drive them around, you'd report on them. Yeah. And what is our
2:08:58
stance on EVs? Besides
2:09:01
John C Dvorak: Oh, no, it's just that there is a vehicle you can
2:09:03
buy. Yeah, we don't really have any negative stance. I mean,
2:09:07
Adam Curry: well, I do. My problem is freedom. You have no
2:09:09
freedom. You're tethered. I
2:09:11
John C Dvorak: agree with that. No. Well, we do have I say,
2:09:12
Okay, we have a negative stance. We, we do, but we like gasoline
2:09:16
engines.
2:09:17
Adam Curry: We don't want it on them. We don't shit on them all
2:09:19
the time to elicit the exact words you use. So and you know
2:09:27
what, this also completely negates the, the accusation that
2:09:33
well, they just pander to the people who give them money.
2:09:35
Nope. Nope. We do not pander to anybody. Now we don't have to
2:09:42
know. Why not.
2:09:44
John C Dvorak: We don't have to because we don't want to. We
2:09:48
make it a point. We do is a sales pitch. One of those
2:09:53
reasons that people should be listening to shows because we
2:09:55
don't have somebody telling us what to talk about now. Yeah, if
2:09:59
you don't like our attitude about EVs do what that guy does.
2:10:05
Does you know why people use anything as an issue? I've
2:10:08
always said this when you do soliciting, people use anything
2:10:11
as an excuse not to donate. That's right. Oh, you know, Adam
2:10:15
likes the color red. i You suck. I'm not gonna donate because you
2:10:19
don't like you'd like to color red. I mean, it's just not to
2:10:23
donate.
2:10:24
Adam Curry: It goes like this. I was about to donate. But then
2:10:28
Adam hated the color red. And I decided no, that's my favorite.
2:10:33
I was. I was up for weeks. I've been thinking time to donate. I
2:10:36
was just about to donate. And then you said something that
2:10:38
pissed me off. So now I'm not gonna donate? Yeah, that's all
2:10:41
right. All right. That is our that is the true exit strategy.
2:10:45
When people stopped donating the we exit. So it's up to you. It's
2:10:50
not even up to us to find one. It's up to you to not not make
2:10:56
us go away like the like your favorite shop. It is. Anyway,
2:11:00
thank you to all the artists Thank you, of course, to Roger
2:11:02
roundy great work that he didn't even he really did not expect
2:11:06
this. I in fact, I forget who it was. Someone said that'll
2:11:10
that'll. Hell will freeze over before that.
2:11:14
John C Dvorak: Somebody said or he said, the thing is, you know,
2:11:17
Roger Brown, he's a fine artist. He is in fine artists usually
2:11:21
don't aren't competitive artists in the graphic. Visual arts
2:11:26
area, we have to you know, you it's different. It's a different
2:11:28
business. And so you don't don't never have the fine sense of
2:11:33
somebody. There's a number of people that we have doing art
2:11:36
that are just, I mean, many amateurs and they just have a
2:11:40
sense of it. But they're not fine artists, you know, who do
2:11:44
symbolic art is big. He does big pieces. So there's
2:11:47
Adam Curry: 200 More trolls who dropped off because they just
2:11:51
can't stand they traveled like flies, they can't stand the
2:11:54
donation segment. Oh, you know what, you're just rude to your
2:11:58
fellow producers and you're missing good content. I'm
2:12:00
telling you, it always happens. So with that, we'd like to thank
2:12:04
our executive and Associate Executive producers for episode
2:12:07
1536 And we're gonna kick it off with Andy proximation from
2:12:12
Leawood, Kansas, who pops in with a cool $1,000 and says in
2:12:18
the morning in September 2021 I made a donation that made me
2:12:22
eligible for knighthood but I put my note into Pay Pal or
2:12:25
otherwise messed it up and you didn't get it unfortunately that
2:12:28
does happen it could have been you it could have been us you
2:12:30
never really know. Anyway, here's another donation
2:12:33

2:12:36

2:13:05
John C Dvorak: you're live in Texas I really don't know. Bert
2:13:09
answer when you do a brisket. Oh. You have a slogan for 14 or
2:13:15
so hours and you get to the ends of it get kind of crusty and
2:13:18
burnt looking and that and those are considered delicacies and
2:13:21
you cut them off and you either give them Somebody ordered some
2:13:26
other brisket and you give them a little of these as a bonus.
2:13:28
Well, nobody hands no delicious. Yeah,
2:13:30
Adam Curry: no one has ever given me that bonus. Shame on
2:13:33
John C Dvorak: you. You've probably had him and you don't
2:13:34
know it. That's the thing. Because you wouldn't you
2:13:37
wouldn't think of anything special if you don't know what
2:13:39
you're eating.
2:13:40
Adam Curry: And Andy winds up saying stay safe everyone. Thank
2:13:43

Idaho you might want to cut it down a little bit. It's a little
2:13:56
lengthy.
2:13:57
Adam Curry: He comes in with the striper number seven seven,
2:14:03
which he calls the slot machine donation Eero sevens, which when
2:14:07
added to my previous donation of a row of ducks makes me a
2:14:10
knight. If you'd be so kind to kick in a penny. Oh, I miss you.
2:14:14
Where's my penny jar? There it is. No agenda brings tremendous
2:14:18
value to to so many respite of clarity in a world overflowing
2:14:23
with seemingly demonic forces, running gaslighting ops around
2:14:27
the clock. Here's a bit of value back out in the form of
2:14:31
treasure. He says despite having only discovered you in 2020, the
2:14:35
show's quickly ascended to the top of my Mount Rushmore of life
2:14:38
changing influences. This is a category so rare, as to be
2:14:42
neatly non existent and your product has reflected this
2:14:45
decision in a way that makes it almost otherworldly. It's hard
2:14:50
to adequately describe but suffice to say we appreciate the
2:14:53
heck out of you. out of it, the import of your vow of poverty is
2:14:58
not lost on the audience. Put He's dubbed me sir Scott the
2:15:01

2:15:08
Claude The gypsy. Jason the weightlifting pole, aka Chris
2:15:14
Campbell. And Elliot fine. And then he has a couple of Jingle
2:15:22
requests. He says Could you give us some Arnold Schwarzenegger
2:15:25
screw your freedom? Kamala with a insane laugh and a don't. Raph
2:15:30
thank you for your courage. So Scott, did you think people
2:15:33
should know that's not the right one. Oh, sorry. I hate that when
2:15:41
that happens. I should have looked at the time. Screw your
2:15:44
freedom. Where's it?
2:15:48
John C Dvorak: I thought they can do it. It's good for your
2:15:50

audio quality.
2:19:46
Adam Curry: I love that. Yes, it is criminal.
2:19:49
John C Dvorak: Please de douche me. You've been de deuced used
2:19:55
to be a setting on a dassie called Flanger flame doesn't it?
2:20:00
I have it on the new systems. But the flanger I think puts
2:20:04
things into a very entertaining out of phase quality. The
2:20:08
Flanger
2:20:09
Adam Curry: we used to we used to do that flanging. We call it
2:20:12
flanging. You say flanger. Oh, it's probably Flanger Flanger
2:20:15
flanger. And the way you do it is you get to reel to real decks
2:20:18
with identical recordings, or you could do with two
2:20:21
turntables, you get the same record, and you and you start
2:20:24
them at the same time, and you kind of sync them up and if they
2:20:26
are almost exactly in sync, then you point then you can get that
2:20:31
flanging effect, which used to be kind of the only effect we
2:20:35
could make back in the day before before reverb. We had a
2:20:39
reverb and then you could make the really long reverb, the rim
2:20:42
or the reverse echo, where you record something with the echo
2:20:46
and then you take the tape off, flip it around and run it
2:20:49
backwards. We used to do that a lot.
2:20:53
John C Dvorak: It's good times
2:20:54
Adam Curry: very good times back in the day we used to edit with
2:20:57
a razor blade and a wax pencil.
