0:19
of Texas Hill Country here in FEMA Region number six in the
0:22
morning, everybody. I'm Adam curry
0:24
John C Dvorak: and from Northern Silicon Valley where we're all
0:26
wondering why Tommy Jiang wants us to get rid of our CBD. Why?
0:32
On Jhansi Dvorak hill
0:37
Adam Curry: you better be asking us to get rid of it to exchange
0:39
it for THC.
0:42
John C Dvorak: I don't know. I don't know why.
0:44
Adam Curry: What are you saying? You brought it
0:46
John C Dvorak: up? Yeah, it's an all the ads at the bottom of all
0:49
the web pages.
0:50
Adam Curry: What is this? What does it say? I like bait. Oh,
0:54
okay. I missed all of this. I had no idea that that was
0:57
happening. Huh clickbait I do not pay it. I don't click I
1:02
don't look at that bottom of the page. I'm top of the page kind
1:05
of
1:05
John C Dvorak: guy. Yeah, well,
1:07
Adam Curry: there's that. Speaking of clickbait, do you
1:10
first of all, how's it Do you think that I might prediction of
1:13
Elon Musk ruining Twitter is coming true? Can we can we say
1:16
that I'm kind of there yet? Or do we have a little more to go?
1:20
John C Dvorak: Oh, are you a long way to go?
1:23
Adam Curry: I love this, this latest fractus that took place
1:28
over the weekend, where you could no longer post a link to
1:32
your substack on Twitter. You follow this?
1:37
John C Dvorak: Yeah, I've been meaning to check that.
1:40
Adam Curry: And I'm just so surprised. You know, people like
1:44
your friend Molly, would you all upset and outrage? And I'm like,
1:49
Whoa.
1:51
Unknown: Know?
1:53
Adam Curry: what point did you not know that you were the
1:55
product? Do you not remember that this was all free? And this
1:59
was just a free for all? And that you know, you're just a
2:02
piece of meat in this big tech grinder? And people were all
2:07
surprised like, right, why don't you allow that? Come on?
2:14
John C Dvorak: Well, I'm not even sure it's true. I do know
2:16
he's got some new scheme called Create. Oh, what's?
2:20
Adam Curry: What's this? No, I don't know about creates. Oh,
2:22
yeah. Oh, do tell what's the creative.
2:24
John C Dvorak: I think if you go to twitter.com/create, your if
2:27
you're logged in, you know, they'll send you to the page.
2:30
They want you to do all kinds of different stuff, which they'll
2:33
pay you for including what it appears to me to be a subset
2:36
clone.
2:37
Adam Curry: Oh, so Alright, so crazy, crazy thought, you know,
2:40
there's a competitor and he wants to kick them off. Well,
2:43
that makes kind of sense, doesn't it? Oh, it makes total
2:46
sense. Yeah. Oh, people are outraged. Although he's so smart
2:51
people like Brett Weinstein is nine. Yeah, they get into this.
2:56
Like, whoa, Bill, you know, it's like, here's the right Elon is
3:00
doing his smart don't don't even participate in this nonsense.
3:06
And then Elon replies one substack links were never
3:09
blocked. Oh, no, this was no this was Matt Taibbi, he also
3:15
was in this Matt Taibbi meta EBS, like, oh, he was all mad
3:20
and Brett Weinstein jumped into it. And then Elon says no, no,
3:23
no, no match statement is false. substack was a period here's
3:27
where I like substack was trying to download a massive portion of
3:30
the Twitter database to bootstrap their Twitter clone.
3:35
So their IP addresses obviously untrusted. Now this sounds troll
3:39
at
3:39
John C Dvorak: me. So there's a Twitter clone from subs that
3:41
wonder they're doing a substack clone.
3:44
Adam Curry: Yeah, well, it's called notes, I guess which I
3:47
don't have substack I don't have the app. I don't participate in
3:50
any of that. So I guess when you think
3:53
John C Dvorak: like a noob and I've never heard of this machine
3:55
hadn't
3:55
Adam Curry: heard of it either. And she she helps some people
3:57
out with some sub stacks, but apparently notes. It sounds
4:01
right. You know, a tweet a note that would make sense. Sounds a
4:03
bit like noster but I'll just leave that for what it is. And
4:06
then and then the big surprise Elon tweets. By the way,
4:10
John C Dvorak: what is this nostril you keep talking about
4:13
Adam Curry: I told you about nostril? I told you nostril is a
4:18
is like a
4:21
Unknown: it's like gab No.
4:24
Adam Curry: It's it's a set of technologies bundled together.
4:28
It's no STR nostril but I like nostril better. So I'm we're
4:31
sticking with that. And it means notes and other things over
4:35
relays. So you know it. It's kind of like a hub and spoke
4:41
model but you own your identity hub and spoke model for what for
4:45
anything. So the first thing that has been made is a is like
4:49
a social media network or like a Twitter thing. It's like Twitter
4:53
on meth. Because you know, it's a burps and it farts and it's
4:57
all over the place but people and it has payment Lightning
5:00
Bitcoin network payment built in so people instead of liking
5:04
people or zapping each other with little bits of money so
5:07
there's a lot of excitement around that from the of course
5:10
from the Bitcoin crowd and Jack Dorsey is the guy who's put a
5:13
lot of money into debt, no one can own it. So there's no one
5:17
can become a huge winner of this. Just you know, just people
5:23
doing it to you know, they call it censorship resistant and so
5:25
you you own your identity with a with a public and private key
5:29
and then you can put it into any app and all your stuff shows up
5:33
and it's fun. You know, I think there's something to it as you
5:36
know, I pick the hit so I'm keeping my eye on it, but it's
5:39
as I think I told you before, do not try it yourself yet. You're
5:42
not ready for this. You will hate it. But you can do all
5:46
kinds of stuff with it. You could create a substack clone in
5:49
fact, there is one habla dot news.
5:51
John C Dvorak: And all Yo, you hate Mastodon now.
5:54
Adam Curry: No, no, not at all. Not at all. competitor. A
6:00
totally competitor but Mastodon works you know
6:03
John C Dvorak: once you stand
6:04
Unknown: for something once you blow me
6:08
Adam Curry: don't share what Hey, I
6:09
John C Dvorak: can't be all over the map here with nostril I can
6:17
Adam Curry: I've never I don't think I even had a parlor
6:18
account Partha. All right now just insulting me stop this.
6:24
It's something interesting. There is something interesting
6:27
to it. And we'll see. You know, there's been lots of things it's
6:31
like, right now. It's kind of like Tor. You know, and you
6:34
don't use Tor? I don't use Tor. use Tor all the time. No, you do
6:40
not. You do you use a Tor Browser? No, I
6:44
John C Dvorak: use it didn't say Tor browser.
6:46
Adam Curry: I'm sorry. How do you use Tor?
6:48
John C Dvorak: I used to or when I download things.
6:51
Adam Curry: That's torrent.
6:54
John C Dvorak: That was bit Tor.
6:56
Adam Curry: Yeah, that's something different. It's
6:58
different. Tor is God. Man.
7:02
John C Dvorak: We got to onion, Utah. The onion. It
7:04
Adam Curry: is an onion technology. Yes. Correct.
7:06
John C Dvorak: Yes. No. Good. You have a full crowd.
7:12
Adam Curry: Hey, happy Easter, John. One more thing about about
7:18
Twitter because this just destruct me this morning. With
7:22
all the changes Elon is making. I have like no engagement on
7:25
Twitter. I don't really care. It doesn't matter. I post something
7:28
no one, no one sees it, I guess, Shadow banned or whatever. You
7:33
know, people are still getting kicked off for all kinds of odd
7:36
reasons. Oh, by the way, now, there's a former president back
7:39
affiliate badge you can get on Twitter. And of course, Obama
7:43
has won and Clinton has won. But Trump doesn't have won. He
7:47
didn't get the affiliate badge showing your former president,
7:51
which I think is just funny. But how about this? What if Elon is
7:58
a Fed now partner? And he's gonna roll out with perhaps the
8:02
most already adopted fully integrated payment wallet system
8:08
of have them all? In July?
8:13
John C Dvorak: Okay, we'll find out.
8:14
Adam Curry: Yeah, I just had hit me as like, well, that would
8:16
that would make sense. Because he doesn't want to deal with a
8:20
cbdc is one away for all that nonsense. He needs to get going
8:23
now he's in trouble. You can't tell me this is going great for
8:27
him. I don't know you don't know. I don't know. Anyway, that
8:33
was that's all I had to say about that. Just to get us into
8:36
it. So yes, happy Easter, John. Happy Easter.
8:38
John C Dvorak: Happy Easter to you and your family.
8:40
Adam Curry: Thank you. Thank you very much. And you and your
8:43
family Ah well. Speaking of social networks I think this
8:52
latest trove of Bleak dark documents that have been posted
8:57
on social media nowhere else only on social media I'm pretty
9:02
sure that that may accelerate the Restrict act What do you
9:05
think the what act restrict access Oh
9:10
John C Dvorak: no, I can't see a connection well hold on
9:13
Unknown: as the US arms and trains Ukrainian ahead of its
9:16
expected Spring Offensive documents containing details of
9:20
the build up appeared on social media by
9:23
Adam Curry: the SEC all social media and not the internet
9:26
social media by the way this is the CIA broadcasting systems
9:29
John C Dvorak: the funny one the funny thing is is I've never
9:31
found it on social media I found it on the internet on different
9:34
various sites. This is why my assertion and why did they keep
9:37
saying this what is the point
9:39
Adam Curry: so well so that we can rush the the Restrict act
9:43
through which is a you know, which is meant for so called for
9:48
Tiktok but it'll be for everything they'll be they'll
9:50
use it to to have complete control over social media. You
9:54
see,
9:54
Unknown: documents containing details of the build up,
9:57
appeared on social media. What One titled status of the
10:01
conflict as of one March is marked top secret and appears to
10:05
be a daily update provided to the Chairman of the Joint
10:09
Chiefs. Is this just embarrassing? Or does it do real
10:14
damage to the cause of ask the
10:18
Adam Curry: question man stop pausing
10:20
Unknown: defeating Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
10:23
John C Dvorak: I think it's both
10:24
Unknown: undermining confidence
10:26
between the between the cooperation of united the United
10:31
States and NATO and Ukraine, and also within the US government
10:36
distracting us when we shouldn't be entirely focused on
10:39
supporting Ukraine.
10:40
But former US ambassador to Russia now CBS News contributor
10:44
John Sullivan, pointed out some of the information appears to be
10:48
darker,
10:49
elevating Ukrainian casualties beyond a level that the US
10:53
believes it has actually occurred, and vastly
10:56
understating Russian casualties so it makes Russia look good.
11:00
Makes Ukraine look bad.
11:01
The document puts the number of Russians killed in action at 16
11:05
to 17,500. wildly different from what General Mark Milley
11:10
recently told Congress
11:12
that we know probably the Russians have well over 200,000
11:15
casualties.
11:15
Another update Mark secret gives the expenditure rates for
11:19
Ukrainian artillery. A number The Pentagon has not disclosed.
11:23
Adam Curry: me so I got a couple more clips on this. I'm sure you
11:26
do as well. Just listening to this from CBS is is perfect for
11:30
this. You know, they've got the former ambassador to Russia.
11:33
spook we had in Moscow is now a spook on the spook network.
11:37
Unknown: David, having looked at these now public records, what
11:40
stood out to you.
11:42
Adam Curry: These now public records, this is all very
11:45
interesting language.
11:47
John C Dvorak: Before you go any further, I want to make a couple
11:49
of comments about the first clip. Sure. That was David,
11:54
what's his name? Their main guy? For David Martin. Yeah, for
11:59
putting the CIA messages across them. Yes. Network? Yes, we
12:03
Adam Curry: like that good guy.
12:05
John C Dvorak: He's got a nice voice. The gray zone website did
12:11
a whole series of analyses of the number of dead based on what
12:17
we've said over the years, in terms of the dominator dying a
12:21
week and and they put it all together. And it turns out that
12:24
the number in those documents is accurate. Oh, no, by our own, by
12:30
our own commentary over the last year. Yes. So that's bold crap.
12:35
Now, the Russian side of it, of course, you know, Miley 200,000,
12:40
versus what documents 16 or so, gee, let's go back to the
12:45
Vietnam War anytime before that, where we've exaggerated to an
12:49
extreme, the Pentagon always does this exaggerates the death
12:54
on the other side, as though you know, they just can't they can't
12:59
walk across the street without getting hit by a car. Well, we
13:03
have to assume that's bull crap, too. So that document that the
13:06
so called doctored part, might there might be doctored, but
13:10
it's not. That's not where it's doctored it would be elsewhere.
13:14
This is
13:14
Adam Curry: I think, this is the clip of of Miley lying, you say
13:18
exaggerate. But I just
13:19
Unknown: call it lying.
13:20
Even having looked at these now public records, what stood out
13:23
to you?
13:25
The fact that they're public.
13:29
Adam Curry: There's what I find interesting. I think this is
13:33
pixie lady who used to be at Fox and went to CBS. She laughs a
13:38
lot. She's laughing a lot about this. She's chuckling throughout
13:41
everything. And when she did what, what stood out for you
13:44
about this? He's like, Well, the fact that published, there's
13:47
more of that this I didn't notice until I was listening to
13:50
the clips again this morning.
13:52
Unknown: The fact that they're public. There there's there's a
13:57
lot of classified information over here and classified
14:00
information leaks all the time. Sometimes it's deliberate,
14:04
sometimes not. But rarely do the underlying classified documents
14:11
leak. And that's what happened in this case. These these
14:16
documents what
14:18
John C Dvorak: polis said, Okay, what did he say? Alright, listen
14:20
again,
14:21
Unknown: but rarely do the underlying classified documents
14:26
leak.
14:27
Adam Curry: So it says classified information is leaked
14:30
all the time on purpose. Yeah, we know that. But rarely is it
14:34
the actual documents that underlie the information? That's
14:38
what
14:38
John C Dvorak: my understanding is that this actually stems from
14:40
a slideshow and a handout.
14:43
Adam Curry: Yeah, yeah, a PowerPoint, in fact,
14:46
John C Dvorak: a PowerPoint a handout and it was somebody you
14:49
know, you'd give up never had I was gonna leak. So this is not
14:53
the underlying classified documentation. This is from a
14:56
presentation so he's full of crap right there.
14:59
Adam Curry: I think PowerPoint into the handout is a great
15:01
title for a country song. I don't know why, but it just
15:03
feels good
15:04
John C Dvorak: morning handout is what I got today, instead of
15:09
kisses on my lips as all I got, in fact, to say
15:13
Adam Curry: to say,
15:15
Unknown: but rarely do the underlying classified document
15:19
documents leak. And that's what happened in this case.
15:24
John C Dvorak: Oh, wait a minute, it was start stop. If
15:26
you parse it. He, he, you can interpret what he said as the
15:33
underlying documents did not leak.
15:37
Adam Curry: Oh, that's another way of interpreting it. Let's
15:39
listen. Let's let's go back to the videotape,
15:42
Unknown: but rarely do the underlying classified documents
15:46
leak.
15:47
Adam Curry: Yeah. Which is not what this was because this was a
15:51
John C Dvorak: PowerPoint presentation,
15:53
Adam Curry: and handout.
15:55
Unknown: And that's what happened in this case.
15:58
Adam Curry: Oh, they rarely they didn't. Oh, well. It all depends
16:01
on how you parse it. I like what you're saying. I don't think
16:03
most people would parse it that way. But it's possible. It's
16:06
maybe what he meant. Could be he's a spook after all
16:11
Unknown: these these documents are carrying around the building
16:14
in a pouch pouch, hand to hand
16:17
Adam Curry: hand to hand
16:19
John C Dvorak: about the underlying documents. He's not
16:20
talking about the PowerPoint.
16:24
Adam Curry: It could be I'm not I'm not going to argue with you.
16:29
Unknown: These These documents are carried around the building
16:32
in a pouch hand to hand somewhere in that chain.
16:38
Somebody was able to photograph these documents and then get
16:41
them up on social media.
16:43
Adam Curry: There it is social media bad so get them up on
16:46
social media. I'm telling you this is a false flag for no
16:49
social media
16:50
John C Dvorak: I'm not gonna you know again, I will argue with
16:52
you on on the fact that they keep emphasizing social media
16:56
when these
16:56
Adam Curry: things were everywhere. That's my point.
16:59
John C Dvorak: Yeah, it's bullcrap their social media
17:02
aspect of it is what where ha That is in fact they I didn't
17:06
couldn't find it on social media
17:08
Adam Curry: right so do you understand why I'm saying that
17:10
this would be a
17:10
John C Dvorak: grill I understand completely you okay,
17:12
you believe that this is a scam to to promote this restrict part
17:17
of it, which is at least part of a death knell for freedom of
17:21
speech if that thing ever gets through. Yeah, and
17:23
Adam Curry: you won't be allowed to use a VPN to go around any
17:26
restrictions.
17:27

Adam Curry: over there what? It was a fluke. Why even use? I'm
20:12
flabbergasted by this. I'm really your eyes. Yeah, they're
20:18
John C Dvorak: red in there so deconstructive was so much fun.
20:21
Unknown: Or somehow it got sent to somebody it shouldn't have
20:26
been sent to and then got out and
20:29
Adam Curry: wait a minute Polish pouch. Pouch. Hey, what's this
20:32
pouch? This shouldn't be in my office. Let me see what
20:36
John C Dvorak: this post belongs here. What's in it? Oh, I don't
20:43
know what this is. I better take a picture of it and post it on
20:46
social media.
20:48
Adam Curry: I just get this idea. I mean, our top our
20:51
nation's top secrets or national security in a pouch in your what
20:56
you want is ironclad safe, was handcuffed to someone's wrist,
21:00
no no pouch from hand to hand. Oh, I'm sorry. What did you say
21:05
I wasn't looking or
21:07
Unknown: somehow it got sent to somebody it shouldn't have been
21:10
sent to and then got printed out and and
21:14
Adam Curry: we got printed out. What do you mean? I thought they
21:17
were documents in a pouch?
21:20
John C Dvorak: Yeah, there you go. What is he talking about?
21:22
printed out?
21:23
Adam Curry: I know. But apparently he you know, he's
21:25
John C Dvorak: always a thumb drive floating around,
21:28
Unknown: I guess. photograph. So one of the key things that
21:32
John C Dvorak: if you get it printed out, where are you going
21:33
to photograph once you send the contents of your thumb drive
21:36
around because
21:37
Adam Curry: it needs to go on social media. And make someone
21:42
wrinkled
21:42
John C Dvorak: old document? By the way, how do you get all
21:45
wrinkled up like that? You saw these
21:46
Adam Curry: pictures all day? Yeah, it was folded and ready
21:48
because it because it was in the pouch that was
21:51
John C Dvorak: on a thumb drive and printed out? And what is he
21:53
printed out and did wrinkle it up and take a picture? What is
21:56
this, put it in his back pocket
21:58
Adam Curry: to walk out
21:59
Unknown: of photograph. So one of the key things that they'll
22:02
be looking for here is the length of the period of time
22:07
that these documents covered. Right right now, from what I've
22:11
seen, it seems to be a very specific point in time, the end
22:16
of February, beginning of March, but we're getting now now news
22:22
of all these additional documents 50 or more classified
22:27
documents,
22:28
Adam Curry: she's laughing again. I hadn't even noticed
22:31
this one. Let's listen to her laugh again.
22:33
Unknown: Now now news of all these additional documents 50 or
22:38
more classified documents.
22:42
Adam Curry: She can't contain herself when he goes into now we
22:45
hear news of 50 more documents she got and then she starts
22:51
snickering what is going on with this? Listen again,
22:55
Unknown: point in time, the end of February, beginning of March
22:58
but we're getting now now news of all these additional
23:03
documents 50 or more classified documents, which are also now
23:09
starting to show up on social media and these cover not just
23:13
Ukraine but other parts of the world as well.
23:15
Adam Curry: Well, I have not seen the new 50 documents show
23:18
up on social media fifth time you said it. I have an either
23:23
highly suspect this
23:25
John C Dvorak: what if so
23:27
Adam Curry: she knows his bull crap. She knows it. Well, she's
23:29
John C Dvorak: obviously in on the fact that it's bull crap.
23:32
And what is he making these assertions? Pre time? Did he
23:35
know you mean date? Do they have a timeline? And he's like,
23:40
jumped the gun on this.
23:41
Adam Curry: Maybe? I mean, I only heard about the additional
23:44
documents this morning. I have not found any additional
23:48
documents on suit. Maybe
23:49
John C Dvorak: know if it would if there was anything that
23:51
showed up on social media. We would have both gotten in our
23:56
email from the vast hordes of Yeah, social media watchers out
24:02
there that are always looking for material for the show. It
24:05
may
24:05
Adam Curry: be it's on the nostril. It might
24:07
John C Dvorak: be on nostril could be on signal. parlor.
24:13
Adam Curry: Let's listen to the ABC version. A very short
24:15
version of this report
24:16
Unknown: Pentagon is investigating the possible leak
24:18
of classified documents about the war in Ukraine, which were
24:20
posted on social media. The documents reportedly show plans
24:24
for boosting Ukrainian military. The New York Times reports some
24:27
details on the document seem to be different from the originals
24:31
according to military analysts.
24:33
Adam Curry: Now we have a longer report from ABC there's a whole
24:35
lot more things on social media that that notice social media
24:39
social media. Well,
24:41
John C Dvorak: besides the social media thing I think we
24:42
all accept the fact that you're right on that. They keep
24:45
hounding the social media point. It's fun, but if this is
24:48
classified, why would they be getting information saying that
24:52
the information is bogus according to other experts in
24:56
the the way she puts it? They gave it to the penny Ghana
25:00
somebody looked at us as No, that's not right. This is Dr.
25:03
Then as if it's classified you don't say anything, right? Am I
25:07
wrong? Correct.
25:08
Adam Curry: And she can't she can't even show it on
25:10
television. Remember, she can't even read it herself. If she
25:14
comes across these documents and she reads it and it's truly top
25:17
secret. She's in violation. Remember that? Yeah. Remember
25:20
Chris Cuomo telling us that fact? Let's go back to ABC
25:25
urgent
25:25
Unknown: investigation by the Pentagon after classified
25:27
documents related to Ukraine, Iran, North Korea and other
25:31
regions were posted online. ABCs Karen Travers is at the White
25:35
House. Karen. Good morning.
25:36
Adam Curry: Now he said online. Okay. So finally we have
25:38
something just a little more,
25:40
John C Dvorak: he'll get scolded.
25:42
Unknown: Good morning. Do the Justice Department is
25:45
investigating how these top secret documents from the
25:47
Pentagon were little Wait a minute,
25:49
Adam Curry: why is the Justice Department in on this now?
25:52
What's up with that?
25:53
John C Dvorak: Is this a date don't investigate when there's a
25:55
classified leak? There are those who have to throw the book at
25:58
someone. It seems like
25:59
Adam Curry: it was all Pentagon Pentagon Pentagon over on CBS
26:02
and ABC has got the Justice Department involved. But could
26:06
be warring factions here. I don't know. Good morning
26:08
Unknown: to the Justice Department is investigating how
26:11
these top secret documents from the Pentagon were leaked and
26:14
posted on social media.
26:17
Adam Curry: He is getting scolded what a doofus in moron.
26:21
He's getting the hotline right as we speak
26:23
Unknown: and posted on social media. Pictures of the documents
26:26
appeared on social media this week. But ABC News is learned
26:30
that back in early March, dozens of classified documents were
26:34
published online, including sensitive details about China,
26:37
North Korea Iran's nuclear program and the war in Ukraine.
26:41
Some of these documents appear to be photos of slides from
26:44
March 1 showing how the US and NATO were helping Ukraine in
26:49
this fight against Russia. The photos most of which we cannot
26:53
show include details about casualty numbers, training
26:56
schedules and weapons deliveries, most of which
26:59
Adam Curry: we can not show. How about that.
27:01
John C Dvorak: Wait a minute, let's stop right here again, as
27:05
we continue, and I will say it beat us to death.
27:07
Adam Curry: I like it.
27:11
John C Dvorak: If it's on social media, and it's on the internet,
27:13
it's all over the place and has been posted already. That makes
27:17
it new vac public domain. Why can't they show it? Because
27:23
they're stupid even at this go back to ball. I don't know how
27:26
many years ago, we first discovered this, that we kind of
27:29
knew it. But we didn't know completely until one of our
27:33
people told us that he had a girlfriend who was working for
27:39
the intelligence agency for the State Department and she can't
27:42
even go on to look at anything that is supposedly a duck even
27:48
though it's everyone cuz everyone in the world can see
27:50
it. If you've been if you're
27:53
Adam Curry: if you have if you have clearance,
27:56
John C Dvorak: certain type of color, you have clearance, you
27:59
can't look at it, which makes so
28:01
Adam Curry: much sense.
28:02
John C Dvorak: So, so the network dead says this obvious
28:07
is working for one of the intelligence agencies first.
28:10
Adam Curry: And I think there's also an element of if we if we
28:13
hold man, if we show this, we will be cut off. We'll get no
28:17
more information. Because she doesn't say why. She says which
28:21
we can show
28:22
Unknown: we're helping Ukraine in this fight against Russia.
28:25
The photos most of which we cannot show most of which we
28:29
cannot
28:29
Adam Curry: show.
28:33
John C Dvorak: Or news like in a news operation they have this is
28:36
out there. Yeah, I can see it. I go if I can find it. Can you
28:40
show it? If I found it? I can look at it and show it to you.
28:43
Exactly. I could post it and why can't they do it? This is a news
28:46
or this is the first amendment we're talking about here.
28:52
Adam Curry: Okay, all right.
28:54
Unknown: We're helping Ukraine in this fight against Russia.
28:57
The photos most of which we cannot show include details
29:01
about casualty numbers, training schedules and weapons deliveries
29:05
and the battle map of the key Ukrainian city of Buck mood. Now
29:09
some of these photos are creased as if they were folded. One US
29:13
official tells ABC News The documents are no longer relevant
29:16
to the battlefield and they're of limited intelligence value.
29:21
Yeah, showing them here to have been altered from the original
29:25
documents. But the fact that they were published online so
29:28
quickly after they were produced on March 1 makes this already
29:32
very big on second.
29:34
Adam Curry: It is now April 9.
29:38
John C Dvorak: That's a month almost a month and a half.
29:40
Adam Curry: This has been floating out there since March
29:42
1, and this is the first we're hearing of it. The reason why
29:45
everyone's laughing because this whole story is bullcrap. It's
29:49
all bull crap. It's made us to be it's made up. It's made up to
29:53
you know to embarrass somebody, maybe the Pentagon probably to
29:58
show that you know We need a way out of this war because let's be
30:02
honest we don't there's wars no good nothing's gone the way we
30:06
John C Dvorak: were there is that element the other element I
30:08
think is the first element you let's say you are not one of the
30:14
intelligence guys from NSA CIA one of them. And you're at
30:18
you're at you got invited to this. slideshow, slideshow.
30:24
Adam Curry: PowerPoint. Yeah, PowerPoint who has the deck
30:30
Unknown: deck
30:33
John C Dvorak: as yours or it couldn't be foils oil so anyway,
30:38
so you get you're watching this and you're you're looking at
30:40
this and you're looking around the room and there's Afghani
30:43
guys another guy from you know, from mi sees it what is this?
30:48
What did they showing this for? I am going to blow the lid off
30:53
this by boat by getting my copy, I'm gonna put it on social
30:57
media, the internet, whatever, to get these guys to stop doing
31:02
this sort of this is stupid. And so they just this might be just
31:05
what you said in a way of embarrassing the idiot said, put
31:10
this together in the first place.
31:12
Adam Curry: I wonder if it was a PowerPoint deck or if it was a
31:15
spot coils, foils. foils, oh you mean overhead foils?
31:23
John C Dvorak: Yeah, that's what the IBM used to use just until a
31:25
few years ago. They required everything to be on foils. To
31:29
call them foils wouldn't
31:31
Adam Curry: know what to call them? We call them overhead
31:34
sheets. Yeah, their
31:35
John C Dvorak: overhead but they generically referred to as foils
31:38
at least in the industry.
31:40
Adam Curry: Oh, yeah. Well, not in the industry. I'm still
31:42
thinking that spotlight, apples, a PowerPoint clone. I know it's
31:47
all it's all fishing turn
31:48
Unknown: from the original documents. But the fact that
31:51
they were published online so quickly after they were produced
31:54
on March 1 makes this already very big leak and even more
31:58
significant security breach and risk the Pentagon tells us they
32:02
are reviewing this matter.
32:05
Adam Curry: Yeah, so yeah. The only thing that changed the
32:10
reason they say that well you know there's the been doctored
32:14
is because of the lies the lies of how many casualties they were
32:18
that that's why that happened. Yeah,
32:21
John C Dvorak: yeah. Yeah, this is so bogus, but they do Oh, no,
32:24
they given that blowing this up like at the end TD version of
32:27
this. Oh, lovely. We love this is in D. D. Second, leak
32:33
Pentagon docs. All right.
32:35
Unknown: Several documents of what appears to be secret
32:38
information about the war in Ukraine have been leaked online.
32:42
And if the documents proved to be true, it could mean US troops
32:46
are on the ground in Ukraine. And today's Jason Perry takes a
32:50
look at those documents.
32:52
The Pentagon is now investigating what appears to be
32:56
secret documents about the war in Ukraine that were leaked
32:59
online. They appear to be US and NATO military documents with
33:03
classification markings of secret and top secret. As of now
33:07
no official statements have been made about who was responsible
33:11
for the alleged leak. In an email to NCD. The Pentagon gave
33:15
us this statement. We are aware of the reports of social media
33:19
posts and the department is reviewing the matter. Okay, so
33:23
Adam Curry: it's the Pentagon who are saying social media if
33:25
that is indeed their quote to them. It's the Pentagon who are
33:29
saying we are made aware of social media posts Exactly.
33:33
Okay.
33:33
Unknown: In an email to NCD. The Pentagon gave us this statement.
33:37
We are aware of the reports of social media posts and the
33:41
department is reviewing the matter. US officials say the
33:44
documents look like real slides from the Pentagon, but also say
33:48
some of the information has been altered. For example, a document
33:52
from March 2023 classified as secret
33:55
Adam Curry: Hold on a second. How can these documents be out
33:58
in March 1 When they're when they're dated March 23. Little
34:05
discrepancy in the timeline? Oh,
34:07
John C Dvorak: that's a good one. Good cat.
34:08
Adam Curry: How does that work? How does that
34:10
Unknown: work? In an email to NCD? The Pentagon gave us this
34:14
statement. We are aware of the reports of social media posts
34:17
and the department is reviewing the matter. US officials say the
34:21
documents look like real slides from the Pentagon, but also say
34:25
some of the information has been altered. For example, a document
34:29
from March 2023 I'm
34:31
Adam Curry: sorry, march 2023. Okay, oh, my mistake classified
34:34
as secret
34:35
Unknown: says between 60,000 to 70,000 Ukrainian troops have
34:39
been killed in action, which is higher than what the Pentagon
34:42
says it estimates.
34:44
Adam Curry: But wait a minute. Oh, yeah. Okay. It was the
34:47
Russians who were less I got.
34:48
Unknown: The documents also estimate Russia's casualties to
34:51
be around 16,000 to 17,000. But US officials say they estimate
34:57
around 200,000 Russian troops have been killed in Action.
35:00
Another document also classified as secret is dated February
35:04
2023. It shows the amount of Western weapon systems that
35:08
Ukraine currently has on hand and the estimated delivery of
35:12
additional systems. And it also lists the training Ukrainian
35:15
forces have or are expected to have on those systems.
35:19
Adam Curry: So Miley did lie in to Congress. So they will
35:25
someone's going to be I'm sure gates, someone will call him
35:28
back and say, Hey, you said this. This is this is what it
35:33
says what's going on? He's gonna say, oh, no, that was doctored.
35:36
Someone took it from the pouch. But it's, I mean, this has to
35:40
also somehow be part of the ending of the war. I feel it
35:45
somehow.
35:49
John C Dvorak: Well, no, something's up. The other thing
35:53
that's going on simultaneously, is this Taiwan situation, we'll
35:57
get to now we'll get to that for sure. I just want to mention it
36:01
in advance, which is that we can't do both? No, of course
36:05
not. So it looks like
36:08
Adam Curry: this may be the pivot point. It might be part
36:11
two of this. The prior to the pivot PowerPoint,
36:14
Unknown: the director of grand strategy at Quincy Institute,
36:16
George BB had this to say on the hill.
36:19
One potential hypothesis here is that this was designed to get
36:23
the Russians to let their guard down to, to think that the
36:28
Ukrainians are not going to be coming at them with big numbers
36:31
and overwhelming force Psych. And that's possible. But I think
36:35
if you were really trying to throw the Russians off, you
36:38
would want to include some things that would include where
36:42
and when the Ukrainians might be attacking. That would be the
36:46
ultimate aim of this kind of deception.
36:48
Something else that was shown in the documents is the presence of
36:52
nearly 100 Special Operations troops in Ukraine from NATO
36:56
countries, including from the United States, France and the
36:59
UK. According to The New York Post, Russia's Kremlin
37:03
spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said this in a statement to CNN, we
37:07
don't have the slightest doubt about the direct and indirect
37:10
involvement of the United States and NATO in the conflict between
37:14
Russia and Ukraine. Well, of course, it makes the whole story
37:17
more complicated, but it can't influence the final outcome of
37:21
the special operation.
37:23
Adam Curry: Was it some secret that was a secret that we were
37:26
involved somehow in helping Ukraine was this like some of
37:29
the
37:29
John C Dvorak: this was the interesting part of this report
37:31
is that everybody else kind of downplayed the fact that in
37:34
their, in the leaked documents, it talked about the fact that
37:39
we're loaded, loaded up with a bunch of special forces, guys
37:43
and trainers and ever they're all over there. And we've talked
37:46
about this on our show, because we had a specific person that
37:49
was involved in Yeah, in being being there in Ukraine in the US
37:53
Army. And so it's a big, but I think there's still think it's a
37:58
secret. So none of the other networks mentioned this. I feel
38:01
like
38:02
Adam Curry: wait a minute. Social media knows what we're up
38:04
to. can't have this. These guys are dopes. I
38:11
John C Dvorak: also think more could do a better
38:12
Adam Curry: job. Yeah. dopes the dopes? Well, I agree. I think
38:17
this is a pivot to China, maybe China will be blamed. It would
38:20
be nice, you know, because that kind of falls in line with blame
38:24
Trump. Now he's blamed for Afghanistan.
38:29
Unknown: Classic, yeah,
38:30
Adam Curry: I think that they would, it would fit nicer if
38:32
like, well, you know, the Chinese did this. And this is
38:36
where you know, what they should have said and it could still
38:39
happen. It turns out it leaked on Tik Tok because they haven't
38:43
specified which social media Oh, that would be good. How about
38:46
that one? That would be the way to go
38:48
John C Dvorak: was leaked on Tik Tok by a dancing girl.
38:54
Adam Curry: Your imagination is very creative today.
38:57
John C Dvorak: You know, if you get on tick tock and you get on
38:59
that wrong thread.
39:02
Adam Curry: The wrong side? The one you don't want that one you
39:04
don't love? Yes.
39:05
John C Dvorak: All it is are these dipshit teenage girls
39:08
doing this stupid dances where they touch their face and they
39:11
jump around and they shake their ass and they do a torque maybe
39:15
and they didn't eat then they didn't they go and eat dinner
39:17
hand comes forward and they turn off the camera. It's like door i
39:21
There must be a million of these of these clips.
39:24
Adam Curry: Stick with it because there'll be a new one
39:25
soon. And that's like, that's how
39:27
John C Dvorak: I always try to get back to the good clips,
39:29
which is that people with purple hair bitching about their
39:32
students being non binary.
39:34
Adam Curry: Let's go back to CBS This Morning. And we'll get to
39:37
the move into Taiwan and China.
39:39
Unknown: The meeting between Taiwan's President and Speaker
39:43
McCarthy was first and foremost, a clear signal to China. her
39:47
arrival and welcome by the speaker in a bipartisan group of
39:51
lawmakers was meant to telegraph that America would come to the
39:54
rescue if China tried to seize Taiwan by force.
39:59
The Press Since an unwavering support, reassures the people of
40:05
Taiwan that we are not isolated, and we are not alone.
40:13
This was a choreographed show of solidarity,
40:17
the friendship between the people of Taiwan and America as
40:19
a matter of profound importance to the free world.
40:23
Predictably, China was furious Dre, the Foreign Ministry
40:28
spokeswoman warned it would use strong and resolute measures to
40:31
defend its sovereignty leading to enter. Last time a warning
40:37
like that meant an intimidating display of force China's
40:40
missiles, planes and warships all around Taiwan. That was in
40:45
August 2022. After then Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the island
40:50
to meet with President Simon. Seven months on life in Taipei
40:54
is ticking along as people are getting used to the tension and
40:59
now bracing themselves for yet more Chinese reprisals. Michael
41:04
Cole is an analyst with the Republican Institute in Taipei,
41:08
there is absolutely no doubt that they will do something to
41:13
try to punish Taiwan as a result of president's eyes,
41:17
particularly over her meeting with with Speaker McCarthy Okay,
41:20
I have a couple of
41:21
Adam Curry: questions for you. So one we've known that China
41:28
has kept saying hey, you know, if you'd like we have first we
41:31
had Pelosi went there and your wire why are we trying to poke
41:36
the bear? You know, it's like, if they say, Hey, don't don't
41:39
meet with that person. We don't like it. And then what is the
41:42
point of us going Oh, yeah. Neener Neener I'm gonna go. And
41:46
then second. Yeah. What is the importance of Taiwan to the
41:50
American people? What is well, because it seems like it's a
41:56
major thing in the world.
41:59
John C Dvorak: Well, besides the fact that they make all the good
42:01
chips nowadays, okay. All right. And they pretty much control how
42:07
high tech because of their their position that they're good for
42:12
two things. One, they make these TM SC makes these a TSMC makes
42:20
these terrific chips thanks to us. And so our technology which
42:26
we can apparently afford to make here is all been exported to
42:31
Taiwan and they and we have to actually pull up that company
42:35
has to be destroyed if China goes in and that's a pain in the
42:38
ass. Do you mean the thing is they are the number one people
42:42
don't realize is I've asked around I've been to Taiwan quite
42:45
a few times and I've always asked this what is Taiwan really
42:48
the best at no one can really tell you Hamas?
42:51
Adam Curry: Oh no, that's that's Israel.
42:53
John C Dvorak: That's that's Lebanon. Injection Molding our
43:00
plastics. A Motorola guy told me this he says, you know, you
43:05
could you can dream up anything you think can't be injection
43:10
molded or can be made into in a plastic form? That's right, the
43:15
Taiwanese can do it. They are unbelievable at injection
43:19
molding? And I don't know if that's important to the Chinese
43:22
but I'm sure it is. The Chinese would love to have Taiwan
43:25
they're there. They don't need laws on Kong it's got to control
43:29
does
43:29
Adam Curry: Taiwan not sell anything to China? If China says
43:32
hey,
43:33
John C Dvorak: Taiwan do nothing but business Exactly. So
43:36
Adam Curry: there's not really a problem. We're just rocking the
43:38
boat like
43:39
John C Dvorak: a bunch of days. The whole thing is somewhat what
43:41
phony
43:42
Adam Curry: military industrial complex needs to pivot need to
43:45
pivot from Ukraine loser situation and I got some stuff
43:50
on that too over to Taiwan so we can all act high and mighty and
43:54
we're important we need more stuff need more money. We had
43:57
the chips Act which I know it's all bull crap. Let's just
44:00
pretend that we're dumb. We had the chips Act which was what
44:04
over a trillion dollars and that was supposed to stimulate chip
44:08
production and foundries in the United States. Of course money
44:12
just got already a flop by the stolen and and Europe also had a
44:16
chips Act which all that money got stolen. No doubt me I don't
44:19
see any apparently no, no just doesn't go into and then we have
44:23
ASML which is a Dutch company and whoa, went over to talk with
44:28
that. Hey, you know, you guys you gotta be there. Hey, we're
44:32
big mad merch over here. You can't be sending stuff over
44:34
there. If China takes over Taiwan. You can't give them any
44:37
lithography so they can't make their chips that this this is
44:41
makes no sense. Why are we rocking the boat? So what if
44:46
China takes over Taiwan? I mean, I'm just say, I'm sure it'd be
44:50
suck for those people, all kinds of horrible problems, but it
44:53
does not like the chips would stop. Would they?
44:58
John C Dvorak: Ah Was your thesis I don't know what to say.
45:03
I don't know what what there's some something we don't
45:06
obviously know. Yeah no but this is interesting to watch it
45:10
unfold in my favorite clip of these Chinese clips is this one
45:14
here I think because it's like China trying to copycat us in
45:18
this play this clip is Chinese pulling sanctions card.
45:24
Unknown: Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party has sanctioned
45:26
two American organizations the Hudson Institute, and the Ronald
45:30
Reagan Presidential Library hosted Taiwan's president during
45:34
her recent travel to the US. The organization's are now banned
45:38
from any cooperation exchange or transaction with China. This
45:42
includes Chinese institutions and individuals. key leaders of
45:47
the organizations are also personally affected. They'll be
45:51
barred from visiting China have any assets in the country frozen
45:55
and more. A Taiwanese government agency handling China relations
45:59
condemns the sanctions calling it an intimidation attempt.
46:02
Adam Curry: Oh, wow. Ooh, Ronald Reagan Library.
46:08
John C Dvorak: Though it's almost as though they're mocking
46:10
us Hi thing
46:11
Adam Curry: by the way, your book is overdue China. You prior
46:15
to bringing it back to the Ronald Reagan Library. We're
46:17
really upset with you. This this, okay. This has got to be
46:23
theater on a grand scale. There's just no no other way.
46:26
And by the way, okay, so let's say China who needs us? Without
46:31
us they have no business. Okay, you just sell to Europe. You
46:36
need us where your market where your buyers where the jumbos. So
46:39
what Okay, President Biden comes out and they program him to say
46:43
the following. Everybody got bad news? There'll be no iPhone
46:50
upgrade this year. Do you think y'all can hold on for another
46:53
year until we get our foundry set up here? What could the
46:57
worst possible outcome be? I know chips and all kinds of
47:00
stuff. But chips don't just burn out. Now, what do you think we
47:04
could we could hobble along for another year? Oh, I'm sorry. No,
47:07
of course, AI is so we actually would solve the AI problem. No
47:11
chips. We can't AI won't take over America because we have no
47:14
chips. Just it's all kind of it's just the whole thing makes
47:19
no sense. Other than Well, here it is. This is a shame to say a
47:24
Texan who I have met in other contexts. It's just McCall. The
47:30
big, the big military warmongering Wrangler. He's not
47:36
always a douchebag. He's a war mongering douchebag. And all he
47:39
could talk about is Ukraine, Ukraine, neighbor, Ukraine,
47:42
Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, and now all of a
47:45
sudden,
47:45
Unknown: so speaker McCarthy and yourself have said that multiple
47:48
times now that we need to arm Taiwan now, before there's any
47:52
sort of invasion. What about US troops?
47:55
I think, you know, then you're talking about an authorized use
47:58
of military force that would come out of my committee or a
48:01
declaration of war, which we haven't utilized since World War
48:04
Two,
48:04
would you support that?
48:05
I think if, if China Congress China invades Taiwan, I think
48:11
that is certainly if the American people support this,
48:15
the Congress will follow
48:17
Adam Curry: notice Communist China, this V and Vietnam all
48:20
over again, Communist China
48:22
Unknown: has foreign affairs Chairman Michael McCaul
48:25
signaling he is signaling to sending American troops to fight
48:28
in Taiwan. It hasn't he has the exclusive report from Taipei.
48:32
Good morning. Aisha said
48:33
Adam Curry: the reserves and the guard for New Jersey.
48:36
Unknown: Good morning to you, Dana. Good to see you. You know,
48:38
this is very different than what we heard right before the war on
48:42
Ukraine, when lawmakers were very adamant that there would
48:46
absolutely be no US troops, no boots on the ground. Now we're
48:50
learning that this is very much a possibility when it comes to
48:54
Taiwan. In my exclusive interview with Chairman McCaul,
48:58
he tells me that sending American men and women to war is
49:02
the last resort conflict is the last resort deterrence is key
49:06
here. But authorizing war powers is not out of the question. So
49:13
you're saying that the option to authorize war powers is on the
49:17
table?
49:17
If Congress China invaded Taiwan, it would certainly be on
49:22
the table and something that would be discussed by Congress
49:26
and with the American people, are they prepared to do this? Is
49:31
Taiwan worth it? I can argue for a lot of reasons why it is
49:35
Adam Curry: which he of course doesn't do nor does Fox go into
49:37
any detail of all these arguments of why it is so
49:41
important. And what is this new, new, new term? I mean that we
49:45
know authorization of use of military force, we know
49:48
declaration of war, but now we have authorizing war powers.
49:55
Which I found I find to be a little wishy washy. That doesn't
49:59
sound like a real arm to me.
50:03
John C Dvorak: I didn't notice this. Yeah, yeah. authorizing
50:06
the train to vary their language maybe? Well, words do
50:11
Adam Curry: matter. I mean, there's a difference between
50:13
declaring war and authorization of use of military force. Which,
50:18
which I think is such a bogus thing anyway. We haven't
50:23
declared war on anybody since World War Two.
50:26
John C Dvorak: You know, we've always had bases in Taiwan. I'm
50:29
going to read this. This is from Voice of America, no fine. 2020.
50:32
Right. Trustworthy outfit. 2021 us nearly doubled military
50:37
personnel stationed in Taiwan this year. We have boots on the
50:41
ground, that's boots on the ground. The United States has
50:44
doubled as an unofficial military presence in Taiwan over
50:48
the past year, in what specialists described as the
50:51
latest signal to claim that Taiwan's future remains a
50:55
priority. The increase from 20 to 3039 people are people and
51:04
they're there. They're sitting somewhere in a house. I don't
51:08
know where they are. But they I know when you go to Taiwan, the
51:12
is people kind of assumed as a bunch of military guys here,
51:16
because one whole part of the shopping district in Taipei is
51:19
is kind of designed for them. Oh, okay, that makes sense. And
51:26
you notice it when you're there shopping? Hey, let's listen to
51:28
the
51:28
Adam Curry: How about this. Let's listen to the west Clarke
51:31
seven again, shall we? Sure. Just the most important part
51:36
Unknown: seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq and
51:40
then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing off
51:44
Iran.
51:45
Adam Curry: So the China wasn't even on this list.
51:49
John C Dvorak: Without Yeah, it's for Taiwan list. And
51:51
Adam Curry: we're Taiwan.
51:53
John C Dvorak: Let's play. I have a series of clips about
51:55
China here.
51:56
Adam Curry: But before before you go there, because I just
52:00
want to play two response clips from China because they're so
52:04
mad about, you know, McCarthy meeting with some other woman
52:08
who said nothing important. It seems like China's just playing
52:13
it's like all actors on this stage a man
52:17
John C Dvorak: usually say the Chinese do seem a little lame in
52:21
this response to all this Well, here it is
52:24
Unknown: a massive show of military might off the coast of
52:27
Taiwan, China deploying fighter jets and warships Saturday
52:31
sending 71 planes into Taiwan's airspace, and at least nine
52:36
Chinese warships now surrounding the self governed island of
52:39
Taiwan simulating a naval blockade. It's the start of
52:43
exercise joints soared three days of military action that
52:47
Beijing says is a serious warning the exercises in
52:50
response to days of high level talks between the US and Taiwan.
52:55
Beginning with President sighs meeting with House Speaker Kevin
52:58
McCarthy in California. hours later a congressional delegation
53:02
arriving here in Taipei for three days of engagements.
53:05
President sighs saying Taiwan has faced continued
53:08
authoritarian expansionism making cooperation among
53:11
democracies even more important.
53:14
Adam Curry: Okay, wow, boy, big, big response. What I don't
53:18
understand and what is not discussed here in the United
53:20
States is now we have the the leaders of the European Union
53:25
meeting was Zhi Jing ping and yes, it is Macron with Ursula
53:29
Queen Ursula, meeting with him. So if these guys are enemies,
53:34
then they got on they start to sail ships and and launch
53:40
fighter planes the minute we meet with some nondescript
53:43
person, then what are these douchebags doing? Are they are
53:46
friends or not French
53:47
Unknown: president Emmanuel Macron and European Commission
53:50
president Ursula von der Leyen are in Beijing today for talks
53:54
with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. After the meeting, they
53:57
commissioned president to praise the Chinese leaders stance on
53:59
nuclear weapons but warned Beijing against arming Russia
54:03
claiming that that would violate international law. Yet President
54:07
Macron OG issued a joint call for peace talks between Russia
54:12
and Ukraine to take place as soon as possible.
54:15
Adam Curry: This is no coincidence. These documents are
54:17
on social media with this happening.
54:19
Unknown: France sees China as a key player in finding a peaceful
54:22
solution to the war on the commission president said that
54:25
President G had stated during talks that he was willing to
54:28
talk with Ukraine's President Solinsky when the time was
54:32
right. And she emphasized China's importance in promoting
54:35
a just peace.
54:36
Adam Curry: What I just had. I know you have clothes but a just
54:40
peace. What is it just peace? Just
54:45
John C Dvorak: a win win baby. All
54:46
Unknown: right. And she emphasized China's importance in
54:49
promoting adjust peace. This
54:51
visit is taking place in a challenging and increasing
54:55
volatile context. In particular, because of Russia. war of
55:00
aggression against Ukraine.
55:01
John C Dvorak: This is another thing I just want to pause. Does
55:03
this woman just like to hear herself talk? Oh, yeah, she
55:07
looks in the mirror
55:07
Adam Curry: every morning and does this. She says she calls it
55:10
what Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine. So not the war on
55:16
Ukraine, Russia's war of aggression. All the words
55:19
matter, particularly with these political diplomat types,
55:22
Unknown: in particular, because of Russia's war of aggression
55:26
against Ukraine. China's position on this is crucial for
55:31
the European Union. As a member of the UN Security Council,
55:36
there is a big responsibility. And we expect that China will
55:41
play its role and promote a just peace, one that respects
55:47
Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, one of
55:52
the cornerstones of the UN Charter.
55:54
Adam Curry: Okay, so I believe we should declare war on Europe,
55:58
at least authorized military use of force because these people
56:02
are not on our side. They're playing on a whole dip. They're
56:05
there with GE. And if you believe the Russian Foreign
56:09
Minister Lavrov, there's a plan behind it. And I think Ursula
56:12
wants to be in on the on the new High Council
56:16
Unknown: who can bring Russia and Ukraine to the negotiating
56:19
table France, China, Brazil. Today, it was Turkey's turn to
56:24
try its hand up convincing the visiting Russian foreign
56:27
minister to seek peace. To be fair, Ankara is in a unique
56:30
position to mediate its NATO membership, and friendly ties
56:34
with Moscow allowed it to broker one of the rare diplomatic
56:37
breakthroughs in the year long war. But when it comes to
56:40
negotiating an end to the conflict, success is likely to
56:43
be more elusive, sitting down with his Turkish counterpart,
56:46
Sergei Lavrov was very clear. For Russia. This is about much
56:51
more than just Ukraine,
56:53
Adam Curry: produced last night, ceasefire negotiations need to
56:57
be based on the principles of the New World Order, which we
57:00
all need, instead of a unipolar world order. In order led by
57:05
one, hegemonic, yeah, I guess who that's not going to be. So
57:11
that's that, that seems like the plan. and the EU is like, okay,
57:15
oh, you can be the head German China. They're just saying it,
57:20
you know, they're just saying it.
57:22
John C Dvorak: I think these countries don't like us. I have
57:24
a feeling
57:25
Adam Curry: wonder why. By the way, that's the quote of the
57:30
year. I think these countries don't like us know, we being
57:35
represented by oughtred. douchebags we'd come across as
57:38
not so nice. Well, all right.
57:42
John C Dvorak: They can eat it.
57:43
Adam Curry: Yes. All right,
57:44
John C Dvorak: you got some beds go. Here's an interesting
57:46
chinery For this China and trans one.
57:49
Unknown: Next, we hear from a woman who survived Mao's
57:52
cultural revolution in China, fled to America and even ran for
57:57
the US Congress last year. Is this
57:59
Adam Curry: NTD? Or what I just curious.
58:00
John C Dvorak: Yeah, this is I want to this is this is a series
58:04
of clips from Deus Ex Chinese, she's Chinese national, who's
58:08
come here. And she was all she's old. And she got involved in the
58:12
Cultural Revolution. And she sees everything going on here.
58:16
Oh, that went on. What the kids did in China during the Cultural
58:22
Revolution, which nobody very few people in our audience
58:24
remember, but it was, it was a mess. It really screwed China
58:28
up. Yeah. And locked up, everyone over. It was horrible.
58:34
And this woman and now the problem with these clips, and
58:37
there's five of them, because she goes from one thing to
58:40
another, including a glass clip that is a killer, which you can
58:43
just play that and it. She's a little hard to understand. But
58:47
once you catch her cadence, she speaks in a in a very thick
58:52
Mandarin accent. It's a very specific kind of Chinese accent.
58:56
We're not used to hearing, generally speaking, sing songy
59:02
Cantonese accent is what we're more our ears are more used to
59:05
and this is different. So here we go.
59:07
Unknown: Willie Tang Williams pierce through the lens of
59:10
history in her assessment of recent developments in the
59:13
transgender and gun control movements. Let's see that now.
59:17
Willie Tang Williams. Welcome to our show. Thanks for coming on.
59:20
Well, thank you for that you might.
59:22
Now you and other Chinese Americans have drawn parallels
59:25
between the pro trans and other far left activists and the Red
59:28
Guard brigades, militant students who helped purge
59:32
Chinese society of those who opposed Mao's role during the
59:34
Cultural Revolution, which you lived through. Tell me more
59:38
about the parallels that you see.
59:40
Well, that, you know, the the hallmark of whole Mao's Cultural
59:44
Revolution is to use an identity politics and weaponize the US
59:51
who are idealistic and worship His regime worship Him as God.
59:57
So they're the he used almost see My religious indoctrination
1:00:02
and daily propaganda to get them to be weaponized and
1:00:06
militarized, and even toward the end, and very violent.
1:00:13
Adam Curry: Let me just cuz she is hard to understand, but I
1:00:15
think I meant let me just understand what she's saying.
1:00:17
She's saying what Mao did is he used the youth youths who use
1:00:22
the youth ends and you know, gave them whatever they wanted.
1:00:26
And I guess this is where it relates to trans and the
1:00:30
Democrat and Biden and Harris and, and the whole
1:00:34
administration, that they would worship them as gods and do
1:00:37
whatever they want it for them is that when I'm done, I'm what
1:00:40
I'm understanding.
1:00:42
John C Dvorak: Yeah, pretty much
1:00:43
Unknown: torture people who are not so called the Red classes.
1:00:48
And so I'm being warning people about this kind of
1:00:53
indoctrination in our schools and colleges, because young
1:00:56
people, they're not taught the history very well. So they don't
1:00:59
recognize those tactics. And they also don't know that what
1:01:04
is really true. So we are very terrified. And to say that what
1:01:08
is happening today in America,
1:01:10
Adam Curry: wasn't it? Was that also Mao's wife?
1:01:12
John C Dvorak: Who then completely shoot? Yes, she was
1:01:15
the worst she got they had to lock her up.
1:01:18
Adam Curry: And but the kids then went out to ride on their
1:01:20
parents and get their parents locked up. Right?
1:01:25
John C Dvorak: Yeah, that was that too. So she's just saying
1:01:29
that this was going on here to the education system. And it is
1:01:34
parallel to what was going on in Mao Mao's era. And what's
1:01:39
interesting is that I have another series of clips about
1:01:42
this. The last clips that we had a couple of weeks ago, or the
1:01:46
last show would were where we describe this as Maoism which
1:01:52
overrides everything else going on. You know, it's just I think
1:01:56
it's true. I think Mao ism, not necessarily Marxism is what
1:02:02
we're seeing. And it's very hard to recognize because it's never
1:02:05
been one of the one of the ways to go as it were for the
1:02:11
communists. So let me get this right. So
1:02:13
Adam Curry: let me get this right. We have the war mongering
1:02:16
mongering politicians, led by people like the Republican
1:02:21
McCall, that they're all in on it, but let's just say the
1:02:24
Republicans are typically the war guys. Yeah, let's go to
1:02:27
Taiwan. Yeah, that's good. Oh, there's McCarthy. Yeah.
1:02:30
Meanwhile, the Chinese are laughing because they're behind
1:02:33
us. And the kids are gonna stab the everybody in the back.
1:02:38
Maybe, okay.
1:02:39
John C Dvorak: All right. Part Two.
1:02:41
Unknown: We've seen pro trans activists recently a costing
1:02:45
NCAA champion, Riley Gaines, after she spoke out for women's
1:02:49
rights in sports. And it follows a similar event in New Zealand
1:02:52
where a protester threw sauce on the speaker amid unruly
1:02:55
protests. Do you see these marks of violence as connected to
1:02:59
communist ideology?
1:03:01
Was there certainly use their tactics and our young people in
1:03:05
this country don't know what they're doing? And they don't
1:03:08
think and they are the ones who are fascist and the core silence
1:03:12
other people listen to their right because they are
1:03:15
brainwashed to believe their cause is number one priority.
1:03:19
They got to do this, you know, saying right and be part of this
1:03:23
so called a transgender movement, but they're saying
1:03:26
it's only if they study history, then they will know Mao,
1:03:30
actually, us young people, even us young girls, and want them to
1:03:35
actually look dressed like a boy is like soldiers and to join the
1:03:39
revolution, destroy you for cultures, and he tried to create
1:03:43
a tenderness societies erase girls and woman and the gender
1:03:48
differences and give them all to be loyal to the revolution. And
1:03:52
so I feel so sorry to say those young people are being used and
1:03:57
naive, idealistic and now getting involved this kind of
1:04:01
movement almost use a mob tactics, which can lead to the
1:04:05
violence and injuring deaths of people to against the
1:04:10
opposition. So it's not like the bar merch, and we don't have to
1:04:13
gray with chatter we can have discussion and conversations.
1:04:17
No, you must be shut up. If you don't agree with
1:04:21
Adam Curry: us holy, I'm just gonna give this to you. Now, I
1:04:23
know there's more of this coming. Exactly. Through this
1:04:29
lens is exactly what we're seeing happening. Although I
1:04:32
have some clips later when you're done with your
1:04:33
presentation that show that it may be backfiring. Because Mao
1:04:38
didn't have a lot of the pharmaceuticals that we're using
1:04:40
to accelerate this process. Good point. Yeah, accelerate the
1:04:44
process of girls turning into boys and what do we just
1:04:46
recently see? We saw a girl dressed as a boy a militant boy.
1:04:51
And by the way, I have page one of the manifesto which I've
1:04:54
received I ball, Dre.
1:04:56
John C Dvorak: Okay. We look forward to that yet. Yes, I
1:04:58
think the parallel Let's at the transgender character by
1:05:04
Adam Curry: the way, it's 80%. It's 80% Girls, transitioning to
1:05:09
men, but with all we see in the news is the men transitioning to
1:05:14
women. So I believe that to be a huge distraction. So
1:05:18
John C Dvorak: that's interesting. Well, that's
1:05:20
exactly what Mauer did. Okay, I wish step three, well, free
1:05:23
Unknown: speech on college campuses. If you don't agree
1:05:26
with them, you don't cut out to them. And that will come to shut
1:05:29
down your speech event, and they will will be even damage you
1:05:34
personally. In terms of physical health. It's, it's very sad to
1:05:39
see this happening.
1:05:40
Adam Curry: Wow.
1:05:43
John C Dvorak: You know, there was a right or a conservative
1:05:48
judge speaking at Stanford, to the law department. This was a
1:05:54
couple of weeks ago, and about half the students walked out.
1:05:59
Go, yeah. Oh, yeah, I know. And the law firm that were a large
1:06:04
one. I think it's a large la firm and a couple other law
1:06:07
firms have now made an edict that they will not accept any
1:06:10
Stanford Law students as interns. This hasn't been talked
1:06:14
about too much. Because if this if the students can't even
1:06:18
listen to another side of an argument, they're obviously not
1:06:21
not qualified to be legal. Anything. Of
1:06:24
Adam Curry: course not.
1:06:25
John C Dvorak: So they got blackballed. Wow. The Stanford
1:06:28
Law School got blackballed by a bunch of law firms. Good work,
1:06:33
Dean. Wow. Okay, now this changes gears are in the clip
1:06:39
three,
1:06:41
Adam Curry: or four. We're
1:06:42
John C Dvorak: a clip folks up for it. Now. Chad changes gears
1:06:45
and clip four. And it is now it did it looks at guns
1:06:52
Unknown: and turning to gun control. Now, you've been
1:06:55
alerting people to precedents in history where gun control
1:06:58
preceded state and forced atrocities? What's the lesson
1:07:02
that you think that we should draw from that? And and what's
1:07:04
an example of that?
1:07:05
Well, that I understand young people want to participate and
1:07:09
to reduce the crimes and they're very afraid and they live in
1:07:13
fear. What are they saying is oh, they don't understand the
1:07:17
truth. They don't send the cause of the problems. Number one gun
1:07:21
free zones for schools are drawing criminals come to do the
1:07:25
damage, you do the harm. Because you know, hey, nobody with guns
1:07:30
legally can shut them down immediately. You have to call
1:07:32
911 first. And the Secondly, they bought into the leftist
1:07:37
media rhetoric. So Republicans are the bad people and your
1:07:41
support Second Amendment right. But the Ted Cruz just offered
1:07:45
lots of help from the federal government to arm guards to
1:07:50
protect students safety in schools, and to get more funding
1:07:54
and the Democrats shot him down. They don't want to talk about
1:07:58
how to really protect students and teachers, but they just want
1:08:02
to use gun control. But the gun control we all know whoever fled
1:08:06
totalitarian regimes, gun control works, because everybody
1:08:11
will be enslaved. You don't have access to guns, and you cannot
1:08:15
have way to fight back our founding fathers to put a second
1:08:19
amendment in the Constitution, because they know that's the
1:08:22
only way we can stop prevent a tyranny in the United States of
1:08:27
America, history lessons need to be taught that communism Hivos
1:08:32
need to be taught in our schools, but our schools not
1:08:35
focusing on that today.
1:08:37
Adam Curry: Da Man protect this woman. She's in danger. She's in
1:08:41
great danger.
1:08:43
John C Dvorak: Wow, wow. Yeah, this is a Chinese, Chinese
1:08:47
woman. Cracks me up. Okay. So now this is
1:08:50
Adam Curry: she is a Chinese woman, right? Yeah, she's from
1:08:53
China. And but she's in America now. Correct?
1:08:55
John C Dvorak: Yeah, she's Yeah, she's obviously American now.
1:08:57
Yeah. Wow. But I just thought no, this is the one that would
1:09:01
be Clip of the Day. If I was picking one of them. I you can
1:09:03
give us your final thoughts. And these final thoughts are a
1:09:06
summary of everything kind of going on in a very concise way
1:09:11
that a Chinese woman from that experience, a cultural
1:09:15
revolution might see more clear than most of us. And I just
1:09:19
thought this was, again, it's kind of borderline pidgin
1:09:23
English, but it's just a dynamite. Final thought.
1:09:27
Unknown: Now our focus on Marxism, socialism, transgender
1:09:30
data and identity politics. America is a systemic racist
1:09:34
country capitalism bad. It's very terrifying for me to say
1:09:39
that, did the communists follow me come to America or they're
1:09:42
always a worst Western countries. Maybe we don't call
1:09:46
them communist because people don't recognize they are
1:09:49
actually used the communist tactics to divide people to do
1:09:53
the revolutions. So it takes us immigrants, who says the
1:09:57
writing's on the wall to come out. Ha publicly and loudly to
1:10:01
educate the public to warn people we don't want go down
1:10:05
that paths.
1:10:07
Adam Curry: Yeah. Wow, that's really good. They're commies
1:10:10
everywhere in our backyard. They're the commies are in
1:10:12
Congress. They don't call them communists you know that's dupes
1:10:18
more than anything. Okay, so let's let's put some of this
1:10:20
into practice. Let's take a look at a couple of things. So it
1:10:24
really interestingly all of what she said surrounds the Tennessee
1:10:28
School shooting a lot of things and they end with Tennessee man,
1:10:32
they threw it all at the kitchen sink. They brought in black
1:10:36
people they blocked brought in children protesting it's all
1:10:40
about get rid of guns. I mean, it was it's been mayhem.
1:10:43
Tennessee right now is ground Central. And this is what we get
1:10:48
from Karina Abdul Jabbar Van Damme. Pierre, first about,
1:10:54
we'll just listen to the question and what she says
1:10:57
Unknown: former Vice President Pence said the shooter who
1:11:01
killed six people. Christian School testing was motivated,
1:11:06
motivated by hatred towards Christians that the crime should
1:11:09
be categorized as a hate crime. I'm wondering what the President
1:11:13
thinks of that kind of designation. It's not
1:11:15
for us to design.
1:11:16
Adam Curry: Okay, so everything in America is a hate crime. But
1:11:20
when Christians are targeted, it's not for us to decide. So
1:11:24
that kind of gives you a clue kind of gives you a clue about
1:11:27
Yeah, that's about right. And then but you know, and then
1:11:29
nothing for Hey, Christian kids, we see you we feel bad. You
1:11:33
know, this is horrible. Whether you are targeted or not. You
1:11:36
were you had one thing in common. You were kids, and you
1:11:38
were Christians, but now
1:11:40
Unknown: LGBTQ i plus kids are resilient. They are fierce, they
1:11:46
fight back. They're not going anywhere. And we have their
1:11:51
back, this administration has their back. We are so proud of
1:11:56
the kids across this country who have organized protest and
1:12:00
school walkouts, to tell the politicians in their states to
1:12:04
stop this legislative bullying. I know that these political
1:12:08
tacks can really take toll on people's mental health. So I
1:12:13
want to say directly to LGBTQI plus kids, you are loved just as
1:12:18
you are just the way you are. And if you're feeling
1:12:23
overwhelmed, you call 988.
1:12:25
Adam Curry: I mean, how about for the Christian kids or you
1:12:28
just toss a Bible item here read this you'll feel better. I mean,
1:12:31
this this is that's that's our administration right now with
1:12:35
this totally perfect gaslighting press secretary. She is actually
1:12:40
really good. She's doing her job because the press corps and
1:12:44
everyone's doing us a great disservice. They're all focused
1:12:48
on I'm just going along with Wu Tang Clan lady you have there.
1:12:51
I'm going along with that because she's right. Everyone's
1:12:55
focused on the wrong things. They're focusing on Taiwan. Oh,
1:13:00
China were horrible. We gotta take care of Oh, yeah, hard for
1:13:03
trans athletes. What's
1:13:04
Unknown: not a major development and the debate over transgender
1:13:07
athletes rights. The Biden administration is now proposing
1:13:10
new regulations that would prevent schools and colleges
1:13:13
from enacting outright bans in sports. This is going to set up
1:13:17
a clash with states that have already put them in place. CBS
1:13:20
is Ed O'Keefe is at the White House with the new details. Good
1:13:23
evening, Ed.
1:13:24
Good evening, Nora. The proposed change would make categorically
1:13:27
banning all transgender athletes a violation of Title Nine, the
1:13:30
federal law barring schools from discriminating on the basis of
1:13:33
sex, just this week, Kansas became the 20th state to impose
1:13:36
a blanket ban. But the new rule would also allow K through 12
1:13:39
schools and universities to restrict, in some cases, the
1:13:42
participation of transgender students if it undermines
1:13:45
fairness on the field or could lead to injuries. It's in
1:13:48
essence, a compromise between those seeking to ban transgender
1:13:51
athletes because they might have an unfair advantage. And those
1:13:54
trying to protect transgender athletes rights to participate
1:13:56
in sports consistent with their gender identity. There are
1:13:59
several current federal court challenges to the blanket bans
1:14:02
across the country, setting up a confrontation between the Biden
1:14:05
administration and mostly Republican led states.
1:14:08
Adam Curry: So this of course, has people preoccupied mainly
1:14:11
women because hey, wait a minute, we're getting robbed out
1:14:13
of the so to speak out of the equation here. And this is a
1:14:17
it's an obsession for many while it is of course, incredibly
1:14:20
important, it is not what's going on and I watched this
1:14:23
documentary, affirmation generation it's on YouTube, but
1:14:27
put a link in the show notes about an hour and a half. And is
1:14:30
pretty much all children who've and now, young young adults who
1:14:36
have D transitioned, which by the way is about 83% versus a 3%
1:14:42
lie that the Association for pediatric there they're the bad
1:14:45
guys, the American Association for pediatrics, they are liars.
1:14:49
They give misinformation and worse. It what has happened, I
1:14:55
mean, we know about a little bit, but the big pharma the
1:14:59
pharmaceutical industry has gotten to the point where you
1:15:02
can walk into any therapists office, they can declare you
1:15:06
trans even though you may have, you know, like you're a teenage
1:15:11
girl that you're going through all kinds of things you hate
1:15:13
your body, you know, you have anxiety, there's all these
1:15:16
things and No, no, you're trans, it's obvious, and everything
1:15:19
else falls by the wayside. And that is what the therapists are
1:15:22
being told is the is the new science. And most of them, of
1:15:26
course, when you get it from the Association of Pediatrics, like,
1:15:29
obviously, we got to follow that you can put them on testosterone
1:15:34
or estrogen depending on which way you go in. But testosterone
1:15:36
is mainly for the girls 80% of the children transitioning or
1:15:40
throwing some social media throwing some filters on
1:15:43
Instagram. So of course, you don't look the way you like the
1:15:47
way you look, this thing has all these therapists who are now
1:15:50
speaking up talking about what is actually happening. And the
1:15:55
crazy thing is that this is really only still taking place
1:16:00
in America. Whereas the countries that that pioneered
1:16:04
this, in fact, the happiest country on Earth, Finland, they
1:16:08
are now turning back from this practice saying not only should
1:16:12
it not be done, it is incredibly harmful. The things that happen
1:16:17
to girls, particularly with testosterone, as you pointed out
1:16:20
on the last show, ultimately just sterilizes them it leads to
1:16:25
suicide, you know, so what would you rather have a live boy or a
1:16:30
dead girl you know, alive son or dead daughter. These are all
1:16:33
incredibly horrible, horrific gaslighting things said by our
1:16:37
professionals in the medical industry. I pulled a minute and
1:16:42
a half clip from this documentary specifically about
1:16:44
how the rest of the world is not in on this dumb shit. And we are
1:16:48
Unknown: the big news stories overnight. The NHS to close the
1:16:51
UK is only dedicated gender identity clinic for children and
1:16:57
young people.
1:16:58
NHS England has announced the closure of its controversial
1:17:01
gender identity clinic for children. After an independent
1:17:05
report found it was not fit for purpose it
1:17:07
gives Tavistock C's have many other problems. And they're very
1:17:10
high rates of autistic spectrum disorders, self harm,
1:17:14
depression, anxiety, all of these sorts of things. And those
1:17:17
things aren't dealt with because there's this weird way that as
1:17:20
soon as somebody says gender, they don't do anything else. And
1:17:23
the second problem is that the Tavistock has this hugely
1:17:26
ideological approach, it hasn't been doing good medicine, it
1:17:29
hasn't been keeping records, it hasn't been doing proper
1:17:32
research. It hasn't been investigating the reasons behind
1:17:35
a child's trans identity. They've just been assuming that
1:17:38
a child who says I'm trans is trans, and putting them on these
1:17:43
very poorly researched pathways with puberty blockers and cross
1:17:46
sex hormones.
1:17:48
The US is getting more out of step with the rest of the world
1:17:50
every day. There are several progressive countries, that the
1:17:54
ones that like pioneered pediatric gender transition, and
1:17:57
they are reconsidering what they've been doing. Sweden was
1:18:01
the first country to recognize, you know, the legal status of
1:18:04
trans people. And they just issued new guidelines, where
1:18:08
they say gender transitioning of minors should only be done for
1:18:11
exceptional cases and in tightly controlled clinical studies. And
1:18:16
there are no studies going on right now. Finland did a similar
1:18:20
thing two years ago, in the last 12 months, we've heard from the
1:18:25
French Academy of Medicine, the Australian psychiatrists and
1:18:29
Italian psycho analysts all expressing concern. So all of
1:18:32
these changes are at least in Sweden, Finland and England
1:18:37
followed, commissioned systematic review of the
1:18:42
evidence, which found either no benefits to use gender
1:18:46
transitions, or even that the harms outweighed the
1:18:49
benefits
1:18:50
Adam Curry: show. This is now painfully obvious to me. We are
1:18:56
being gaslit from all sides, particularly with the male to
1:19:01
female transitioning, while they're building an army.
1:19:05
Literally, I'm just going to say literally going out and killing
1:19:08
people of Maoist girls. I mean, this this brings the whole thing
1:19:15
together, John. And then if just for some yucks, I'll throw in
1:19:20
some of the distraction because Bud Light, of course, you know,
1:19:24
is it is a distraction. It's a distraction. We all get mad, and
1:19:28
we all know, it's sure it's great that you know, Kid Rock
1:19:31
shoots up the bud light, but we're missing what is the 80% of
1:19:35
children are being mouthy Stickley transformed into an
1:19:40
army ready to fight ready to get angry ready to commit, in
1:19:45
essence, an insurrection on the Tennessee State House. Although
1:19:49
of course, you know, we can draw that comparison. And then they
1:19:53
take the dumbest individuals in our society, the weakest morons
1:19:59
like the VP of Bud Light elicit Gordon Heiner Scheidt to to
1:20:06
ruin. They're willing to ruin a pretty well known brand to
1:20:12
distract us, I guess, from all of this idiocy. But it also
1:20:16
shows you how the left thinks about this man it is the left it
1:20:21
is. And in fact, in the documentary, these are all
1:20:24
Democrats, the whole thing was made by Democrats, they say if
1:20:27
they get in the credits, they make it very clear. We are, we
1:20:31
are progressive Democrats. And it's our fault. We have been
1:20:35
doing this. So listen, she was on a podcast. Of course, that's
1:20:39
where people always screw up. Just a little, a little clip
1:20:42
here. Just a little background of who she is the first brand
1:20:47
manager of any beer as far as we know,
1:20:49
Unknown: being the first woman to lead Bud Light, the biggest
1:20:54
fear brand kind of in the world. It's it's been. It's humbling.
1:21:02
And I'm incredibly grateful. It's taken kind of 41 years for
1:21:07
a woman to be in this spot. And she's 41
1:21:10
Adam Curry: She thinks is that it's taken her 41 years. But no,
1:21:13
it's it's taken 41 years for a woman to be in the spot.
1:21:16
Unknown: We grateful it's taken kind of 41 years for a woman to
1:21:20
be in this spot. And I think it's sometimes helpful just sort
1:21:23
of
1:21:24
John C Dvorak: a second. That's her age 41. So she so
1:21:30
everything's about her. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Because bear has
1:21:34
been around a lot longer than 41 years. I hope she knows that.
1:21:37
Adam Curry: No, no, no, I told you, she's
1:21:39
Unknown: don't realize that. This, this is the spot like this
1:21:44
is where I think I had maybe even dreamed of being in some
1:21:48
kind of position like this. And so kind of being happy in the
1:21:52
here and now is a part of what I'm trying to kind of draw.
1:21:56
Adam Curry: This is where I would say thank you for coming
1:21:58
into interview, you can leave we have no interest in hiring you
1:22:01
but no
1:22:02
Unknown: joy and energy from and particularly it's an interesting
1:22:06
dynamic, as a woman in a in a very male dominated vise
1:22:12
industry, like vice
1:22:13
Adam Curry: industry. It I didn't know it was called that.
1:22:15
Is it called the bytes shed called what beer is in the vise
1:22:20
industry. Not beverage, I'd fire on the spot for saying that. Of
1:22:25
course. Of course you would. I'm in the vise industry. Whoa, what
1:22:30
else is in the vise industry?
1:22:32
John C Dvorak: Oh my god.
1:22:34
Unknown: And particularly, it's an interesting dynamic as a
1:22:36
woman in a in a very male dominated vise industry, like,
1:22:42
like beer in. It's been a long road, Chris, and it's sort of
1:22:50
John C Dvorak: she's saying the product that they make is a vise
1:22:53
correct? Let's look at the definition of you the guy this
1:22:59
is this clip of the day tube. When you're done,
1:23:10
Adam Curry: I took it I took it otherwise you won't give it to
1:23:12
me later you always forget. No, no,
1:23:14
John C Dvorak: I don't pull back. Pull back.
1:23:16
Adam Curry: Don't pull back. Nice,
1:23:19
John C Dvorak: moral or wicked behavior top definition. Wow,
1:23:23
immoral, or wicked behavior. So she's in the business. Happily
1:23:30
in the business of providing of morality. She dressed
1:23:34
Adam Curry: what she said yes. She dreamt of this in some ways.
1:23:37
As a child, she wants to be in the immorality. Why don't you
1:23:40
just go become
1:23:41
John C Dvorak: a whore? Oh, there we go.
1:23:44
Unknown: Ben, it's humbling. And I'm incredibly grateful. It's
1:23:49
taken kind of 41 years for a woman to be in this spot. And I
1:23:54
think it's sometimes helpful to just sort of recognize that this
1:23:58
this is the spot like this is where I think I had maybe even
1:24:03
dreamed of being in some kind of position like this. And so kind
1:24:07
of being happy in the here and now is a part of what I'm trying
1:24:11
to kind of draw joy and energy from. And particularly, it's an
1:24:16
interesting dynamic, as a woman in a in a very male dominated
1:24:22
vise industry, like, like beer in. It's been a long road,
1:24:27
Chris, and it's sort of it's been tense and hard. But it's
1:24:33
also it's also brought a lot of clarity and perspective about
1:24:40
kind of who I want to be and how I want to operate in the world.
1:24:45
And I would say the most important thing about this job
1:24:47
is that you deprioritize bringing other people along the
1:24:53
way community and women I mean, it's just it doesn't mean
1:24:57
anything unless I empower sort of really impacting other
1:25:02
people. And so that's been just incredibly important to me my
1:25:06
decisions with teams, I mean, I, I try to build teams of people
1:25:10
who, maybe nobody else has taken a chance on them. I try to bet
1:25:14
on people who haven't had the opportunity, but on people with
1:25:17
similar values as me who are hungry, and want to do great
1:25:20
things, but care about each other, and protect each other
1:25:22
and are kind and good. And
1:25:24
Adam Curry: hey, how about selling some beer?
1:25:28
John C Dvorak: Holy moly, this woman is full of herself.
1:25:33
selling beer.
1:25:36
Adam Curry: It is called a vise industry that may be maybe a
1:25:39
legalistic term, actually, now that I think about it. So it but
1:25:43
that's certainly not it, let's put it this way. It can be
1:25:46
legally that. But as a brand manager, you would never talk
1:25:50
about your industry as being part of a vise industry or your
1:25:53
product, or any of that. So of course, what do you want for a
1:25:59
beer? What do you want for beer you want? If you're if you're if
1:26:04
you're if you're in charge of the brand, and you know, this,
1:26:07
this beer, of course, this brand has, you know, has a particular
1:26:13
look or particular vibe, you know, we had a dog spuds, what
1:26:18
do you want? Well,
1:26:19
Unknown: and I try to bring that honestly, female representation
1:26:23
in this role has been something I've been really committed to
1:26:26
Adam Curry: bring more women into selling the beer that men
1:26:29
like to drink.
1:26:30
Unknown: We can talk a little bit about that if you want, but
1:26:31
it's been ever since I took this job. I wanted to try to move the
1:26:37
needle in some small choices along the way to sort of say
1:26:41
this matters to me. It's the same when I'm dealing with
1:26:44
celebrities or sponsorships or partnerships. It's my commitment
1:26:47
to sort of bring others along with me.
1:26:51
Adam Curry: So to bring female representation with celebrity
1:26:57
brands represent yo influencers you bring in a dude. Okay, that
1:27:03
makes total sense. How about as a business woman,
1:27:07
Unknown: you know, I'm a business woman, I had a really
1:27:09
clear job to do when I took over Bud Light. And it was this brand
1:27:14
is in decline. It's been in decline for a really long time.
1:27:18
And if we do not attract the brand
1:27:21
Adam Curry: has been in decline for a really long time. She says
1:27:24
John C Dvorak: I didn't know this. Well
1:27:26
Adam Curry: consult the book of knowledge. I mean, I don't know
1:27:28
it's like, is Bud Light in decline? I mean, that sounds
1:27:35
like you're a loser. Yeah,
1:27:38
Unknown: huh.
1:27:39
John C Dvorak: Damn that company.
1:27:42
Adam Curry: Let me see. I don't see any I don't see anything
1:27:47
Well, let's keep going
1:27:48
Unknown: young drinkers to come and drink this brand there will
1:27:51
be no future for Bud Light. So I had this super clear mandate
1:27:54
it's like we need to evolve and elevate this
1:27:57
Adam Curry: this is some Okay, here's what I would say. And
1:27:59
again, I do come a little bit from this world. I do notice
1:28:04
these brands in this family at least what they used to be 25
1:28:06
years ago if you if your number one beer and everything is
1:28:12
rockin and rollin like whoa, I'm I'm crushing it, we're just you
1:28:16
have that sales are off the chart then you can say, Well,
1:28:20
when I came in, it was a it was a brand in decline. And we knew
1:28:23
we had to do something. So but she is saying there's no proof
1:28:27
that her strategy she's only been in since February, just
1:28:30
when she came in just before the Super Bowl. Do you remember the
1:28:33
Superbowl commercials? No, of course you don't know of course
1:28:37
you don't. But I remember the dumb dog from 20 years ago had a
1:28:43
beautiful dog of mine. So you know so this is what she's
1:28:48
saying here is stuff you say once you've crushed it, not like
1:28:52
well you know I came in two months ago and it's a brand in
1:28:55
decline. So you know, if I don't do something this thing is gonna
1:28:58
die on the vine
1:29:00
Unknown: and in decline for a really long time. And if we do
1:29:02
not attract young drinkers to come and drink this brand, there
1:29:07
will be no future for Bud Light. So I had this super clear
1:29:09
mandate it's like we need to evolve and elevate this
1:29:13
incredibly iconic brand and my what I brought to that was a
1:29:18
belief in okay what is what does evolve and elevate mean? It
1:29:22
means inclusivity it means shifting the tone.
1:29:27
John C Dvorak: Stop this, stop this. Immediate just read from a
1:29:33
marketing actually some this came in February. This is from
1:29:40
2020 Okay in decline for a very long time. Sales, especially
1:29:44
bruiser definitely rising, the nation. 7500 Plus craft brewery
1:29:50
shipped a total of 25.9 barrels that 7500 craft breweries
1:29:57
shipped 25 million just quote from an 2020 article, which is,
1:30:04
it's been in decline for a long time. If the amount of craft
1:30:07
beer sold sounds impressive, consider the nation's number one
1:30:12
beer brand Bud Light alone shipped 27 point 2 million
1:30:17
barrels last year
1:30:21
Adam Curry: in decline. Now, how's
1:30:23
John C Dvorak: that in decline? for a really long time there for
1:30:28
a really long time? What does that mean to you five years? 10?
1:30:31
I don't know. Number one brand beer outsold 7500 craft
1:30:37
breweries in and of itself. Okay, so now we know the woman
1:30:41
is full of shit. So let's continue the clip.
1:30:45
Unknown: What is our what are what does evolve and elevate
1:30:47
mean? It means inclusivity it means shifting the tone. It
1:30:51
means having a campaign that's truly inclusive and feels
1:30:56
lighter and brighter and different and appeals to women
1:30:59
and to men. And representation is it sort of the heart of
1:31:03
evolution, you've got to see people who reflect
1:31:05
representation
1:31:06
Adam Curry: is at the heart of evolution, inclusive and
1:31:09
Unknown: feels lighter and brighter and different and
1:31:12
appeals to women and to men. And representation. Is it sort of
1:31:16
the heart of evolution, you've got to see people who reflect
1:31:19
you in the work and we had this hangover. I mean, Bud Light had
1:31:24
been kind of a brand of Friday, kind of out of touch humor, and
1:31:32
it was really important that we had another approach.
1:31:36
Adam Curry: We really liked the stupid humor. We'd liked your
1:31:39
dumb dog and we liked your water with Hopson rice. Come on. Just
1:31:46
Hara Kiri, and the Belgians did it. It must be the InBev guys
1:31:50
who bought Anheuser Busch, they must have brought her in their
1:31:53
whole point. Well, we need to distract the stupid Americans.
1:31:56
This woman will do it don't worry, she'll ruin this brand.
1:31:59
Everyone would get all mad. We got it.
1:32:02
John C Dvorak: If you're a Belgian and you're looking at
1:32:04
the number one brand Bud Light, you're going this beers terrible
1:32:09
compared to our good Belgian or Stella that make us fat. Yeah.
1:32:14
Yeah, exactly.
1:32:16
It's possible. It might be a sabotage methodology. Well, why
1:32:20
not? They can still make tons of money.
1:32:22
Adam Curry: Well, I mean, I could be wrong, but it would
1:32:25
seem possible that that I think it if this if this does what is
1:32:31
happening with these brands? I don't know maybe maybe sales
1:32:34
will go through the roof. I have no idea. Maybe I'm crazy telling
1:32:37
thanks. So maybe I'm I don't know, maybe I'm crazy.
1:32:41
John C Dvorak: Well, that's beside the point.
1:32:43
Adam Curry: Thanks. But this is all the distraction. Just going
1:32:48
back to your original point. This is all distraction. Don't
1:32:52
pay attention to it. Pay attention to our girls. Our
1:32:55
girls who admit first we had to get them out of the nuclear
1:32:59
family with Black Lives Matter. Now we have to just sterilize
1:33:02
them. And they can walk right into Planned Parenthood number
1:33:06
one spot you can walk in and walk out on testosterone the
1:33:10
same day. And I'll never forget the guy I met who said you know
1:33:15
therapist, you can spell it two ways therapist or the rapist. I
1:33:19
think we have a huge problem with these therapists. And they
1:33:23
have to be put on notice. And the American Association of
1:33:27
Pediatrics it is it is watched his documentary. And it's the
1:33:31
same insanity that we often talk about when people all of a
1:33:34
sudden decided it was a good idea to get lobotomies. Same,
1:33:37
same. Good point, same idiocy.
1:33:41
John C Dvorak: Oh, that was a walk in. That was outpatient.
1:33:45
Yeah,
1:33:45
Adam Curry: you walk in and go. Yep, get a lobotomy. I'm good to
1:33:48
go. And now to, to gaslight us even more, because all of this
1:33:54
drag time story out. It's a distraction. It's a comment. By
1:33:57
the
1:33:57
John C Dvorak: way, I do want to mention, we were on that topic
1:34:00
that these and we have a big protest in San Francisco today.
1:34:04
Or yesterday. And it was this idea of anti trans lesbian
1:34:09
legislation that the term which the mainstream media loves to
1:34:12
use, it's not anti trans.
1:34:15
Adam Curry: It's Pro Child pro girl.
1:34:18
John C Dvorak: It's pro it's pro girl. It's and it's like, it's
1:34:22
about sports, where you know, you can have a big dude with a
1:34:27
dick hanging off of him running with the girls in a track meet
1:34:32
and say that's okay, because he identifies as a woman. This is
1:34:35
not anti trans is anti bullshit. And it's like, you know, you
1:34:39
can't teach little two year or a second graders about you know,
1:34:44
homosexuality, it's just not an fact we were promised, with the
1:34:48
gay marriage, people going on and on and on. It used to be
1:34:53
this show called gay news on the cables and they would go on and
1:34:57
on about doing this doesn't mean we're gonna do anything in the
1:35:01
schools to the grant to the grammar school kids, that's bull
1:35:04
crap that we don't want to do that, but they're doing it. So
1:35:08
you have to have this legislation and it's, it's
1:35:11
unbelievable and they blamed everything's the Republicans
1:35:14
fault.
1:35:15
Adam Curry: Well, again, I think that's a distraction. Although
1:35:17
another problem another problem for girls who ultimately
1:35:22
happened to become women, all of that as a distraction, were
1:35:25
yelling about the wrong things, but we need to stop is girls on
1:35:30
social media? I'm looking at you Tumblr. I'm looking at your
1:35:33
Instagram. Also, I'm looking at you tick tock the who are hyping
1:35:39
each other up about the you can see it it went from 0.1% to 9%
1:35:45
within like I'm just a couple of years that Oh no, I'm trans I'm
1:35:50
trans is being reinforced by people in lab coats is being
1:35:53
reinforced by the medical industry is being enforced by
1:35:57
gas lighters like Kareem, John, John Pierre, is being enforced
1:36:00
by our President, that who had the lobotomy, the No wonder by
1:36:07
saying, oh, Trans Day of visibility, you're being gaslit.
1:36:11
And meanwhile, bar girls, the future of any country up there
1:36:15
and these girls are going to be begging to be educated in a
1:36:18
Maoist way and they're going to come and kill you shoot you in
1:36:21
the back or shoot your children or shoot your school. Look at
1:36:25
what's happening. And now the latest one, I'm going to tell
1:36:27
you what it is right now. You can get outraged by it. Drag
1:36:31
syndrome.com Oh, yeah, They've now taken Downey's. That's what
1:36:36
they're called. I have friends with Downey's and they're
1:36:38
dressing them up and drag drag go look at drag syndrome.com
1:36:44
Freshly pierced to drag collective featuring highly
1:36:47
addictive queens and kings with Down syndrome go look at it
1:36:51
they're so sick that they will politicize down kin children
1:36:56
with Down syndrome known as Downey's to put them in drag so
1:37:00
that we get all pissed off about that meanwhile, they are
1:37:03
medicating your your girls your girls your girls are you looking
1:37:11
at it
1:37:15
John C Dvorak: this could be a this could be a photo site. This
1:37:21
could be a plant by you know other the
1:37:24
Adam Curry: what's the difference? As long as we get
1:37:26
outraged over it was the difference? What was the
1:37:30
difference? We see bad? What's the difference? And they're on
1:37:33
Instagram to their Instagram their Instagram page? What's the
1:37:37
difference? Drag time story hour? It's a distraction. Of
1:37:41
course it's not cool. Chris, we don't want that for our
1:37:43
children. The books in the school? No, that's actually
1:37:47
very, very damaging these books now. Teach him some teach him
1:37:53
stuff that is useful.
1:37:56
John C Dvorak: But can we play this? I have a series of what
1:37:59
three more clips about worse Maoism?
1:38:01
Adam Curry: Oh yes. Because this and by the way, it's not
1:38:04
communism. It's Maoism. I'm all in on this. If
1:38:08
John C Dvorak: it makes more sense. Think about it. Yeah. But
1:38:11
it's still communism. This is
1:38:13
Adam Curry: history repeating itself.
1:38:15
John C Dvorak: So they had this guy being interviewed. This is
1:38:17
Patrick Byrne. Oh, Patrick
1:38:19
Adam Curry: Byrne, Overstock CEO, former overstock CEO. Yeah,
1:38:22
yeah, I love this really,
1:38:23
John C Dvorak: he was just got back from a world tour. And he
1:38:25
is not a happy camper.
1:38:28
Adam Curry: We've played a lot of his stuff in the past, and
1:38:31
certainly during these good during the 2016 election, and
1:38:34
then 2020, he had played a big role. And of course, he's a nut
1:38:39
job Q anon. If you look at any, any other angle besides our
1:38:43
show?
1:38:45
John C Dvorak: Yeah, go part one. Patrick Byrne. Here's a
1:38:48
look, Patrick, I
1:38:49
Unknown: want to get your thoughts America is often and
1:38:51
has long been looked at as a beacon of hope around the world.
1:38:56
Not so much maybe for our adversaries, they're forced to
1:38:59
respect us oftentimes. So how is the world looking at this both
1:39:03
our allies and our adversaries? Well, I just
1:39:06
came back from overseas where I don't in the Gulf, Arab Gulf,
1:39:12
Persian Gulf. And in none of the countries I visited, was there a
1:39:16
single person who did not see first what a hoax our 2020
1:39:20
election was? And secondly, did not see that the Biden regime is
1:39:26
doing so badly, there's really a question whether they even are
1:39:29
on our side. But if you're doing so badly, you have to wonder is
1:39:33
it on purpose, like when you see things like Afghanistan, was it
1:39:36
on purpose, or should they really be that bad as to leave
1:39:39
$85 billion of advanced equipment? So yeah, we nobody
1:39:44
believes people really don't believe he's the legitimate
1:39:46
president.
1:39:47
How does a country like China view this? Is it a weakening
1:39:51
moment for our country? Well, I think
1:39:53
China has had Yeah, it's what I'm most concerned about with
1:39:59
China. So I'm quite concerned if we're going to survive. I think
1:40:01
we're being led through a military grade SIOP with
1:40:04
military precision. And ultimately, the chain of command
1:40:09
is at the deep in the shadows. It's China. And there's all
1:40:13
these things that we've been experiencing. That seems so
1:40:15
strange from the reaction of COVID, which wasn't driven by
1:40:20
science, the emphasis on vaccines, which wasn't driven by
1:40:22
science, the reaction to the Antifa, all this domestic
1:40:27
terrorism that gets answered to a crazy election in 2020, and
1:40:31
2022. And now this kind of stuff. This is all part of a
1:40:35
Maoist revolution. Maoist revolutions occur at every level
1:40:38
of society says they're cheating here. They're cheating here. If
1:40:42
they're cheating the election system, they're bringing charges
1:40:45
against anybody who says it. They're bringing charges against
1:40:47
politicians who do anything.
1:40:49
Adam Curry: Yeah, yeah, man would, is there a book we can go
1:40:53
and read about this Maoist revolution that wouldn't
1:40:56
John C Dvorak: know I guess we're gonna have to write one
1:40:57
ourselves. Let's go with part two.
1:40:59
Unknown: Any lawyer who picks up a pen to help they discover the
1:41:02
bar comes after them. So it's all level, it's the teachers at
1:41:05
the at your grade grade school. It's the simultaneous all levels
1:41:09
of society, it wants to completely throw the population
1:41:13
off their off their orientation. And then they basically it's
1:41:16
people, I think that they want to destroy the country in the
1:41:20
belief that they're going to create out of the clutter,
1:41:22
they're going to create a new system. And that system has
1:41:25
nothing to do doesn't resemble anything like this system we've
1:41:27
always had.
1:41:29
Adam Curry: So when after the Mao the Mao revolution and me
1:41:33
Did it work? It did right. And then he had them how long did he
1:41:36
have monitor? have control?
1:41:39
John C Dvorak: Well, he had, you know, did, he was actually a
1:41:41
counter revolution that when he did the, the great, was great
1:41:46
reset. It was great. It worked pretty much in the I mean, it
1:41:54
dissolved eventually. And then they end up throwing the book at
1:41:58
the White wife. Yeah. And but it was a it was very, but it was
1:42:02
very destructive. That's the problem with it. In fact, if it
1:42:06
wasn't for the fact that the Chiang Kai Shek and the boys
1:42:10
loaded up everything they could in massive railroad trains and
1:42:14
shipped it all to Taiwan, where it now resides in a large
1:42:18
museum. That's right in the middle of Taipei.
1:42:21
Adam Curry: Oh, how about it was the Great Leap Forward? Of
1:42:23
course, not the
1:42:24
John C Dvorak: Great Leap Forward. Just wrap up, Patrick
1:42:28
here, Patrick,
1:42:29
Unknown: specifically, when it comes to the Chinese Communist
1:42:31
Party. How are they viewing this right now? Are they seeing
1:42:35
weakness with the United States,
1:42:37
worse than others seeing opportunity? They're seeing
1:42:40
opportunity, they're never going to let Biden out. Before they
1:42:44
take advantage of everything they can take advantage. This is
1:42:47
a historic window of opportunity for them. So we're lucky if all
1:42:51
they do is they run the tables on us for the next 19 months.
1:42:55
We're lucky if that's all they do. I worry. You know I'm a and
1:42:59
the Epoch Times published many years ago, a wonderful important
1:43:03
leak out of China, the most important leak out of China
1:43:05
ever. The secret speech of the minister of defense, sure how to
1:43:09
yen. And it was a speech given in 2003, where the Ministry of
1:43:13
Defense explained how they were going to take down the United
1:43:16
States of America, starting with a bio weapon, destabilize Civil
1:43:20
War. Basically, we are within our Civil War, and then the
1:43:24
cartels and the UN being given carte blanche for three years,
1:43:29
we will be nothing but a host. And then we get colonized by the
1:43:32
Chinese government, the Chinese Communist Party. That may sound
1:43:35
crazy, but that's their stuff. That's their speech. That's a
1:43:39
book called unrestricted warfare by two famous colonels in China.
1:43:44
So that's their stuff. As crazy as that sounds. That's what
1:43:46
they're planning on doing to us someday. They're I mean, I'm
1:43:49
sure they're already laughing like how how bad Rafi in America
1:43:53
have to get that they could even see this stuff in our Chinese
1:43:58
national security literature that we were doing this in
1:44:00
America could still not orient itself to respond. It's kind of
1:44:04
you know, it's not a secret. They're public about it that
1:44:06
this is what they're doing over there.
1:44:07
Adam Curry: Wow. Yeah. And you know what? added a little bit of
1:44:10
fentanyl that'll show him Yeah.
1:44:14
John C Dvorak: I want to play one more clip this kind of in a
1:44:16
fun way. Related to this is to Biden banking clip. Listen to
1:44:20
this.
1:44:22
Adam Curry: Second, okay, here we go.
1:44:24
Unknown: The House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed several
1:44:27
banks asking for Biden family associates financial records.
1:44:32
Fox News confirmed the news today, subpoenas were issued to
1:44:35
Bank of America, Cathay bank, JP Morgan Chase, and HSBC, USA. The
1:44:41
committee also subpoenaed former Hunter Biden business associate
1:44:45
Mervyn Yan asking for financial records. Representative Jamie
1:44:49
Raskin, the top Democrat on the committee complained that
1:44:53
committee chairman James Comer was trying to hide information
1:44:56
from Democrats. Comer told Fox News that we have The bank
1:45:00
records and the facts are not good for the Biden family.
1:45:04
Adam Curry: Did you hear what happened to Jamie Raskin?
1:45:07
John C Dvorak: The Maoist yeah they
1:45:09
Adam Curry: they threw him on the ground and broke his femur
1:45:14
John C Dvorak: deep that was Jamie Raskin
1:45:16
Adam Curry: yeah just happened was in the news so it must be
1:45:19
true
1:45:20
John C Dvorak: he broke a bone yeah that's it that's a hard
1:45:23
bone to break out when the femur that's the upper arm bone right
1:45:28
Adam Curry: I thought You thought it's not your in your
1:45:29
leg the femur
1:45:32
John C Dvorak: we might think enough whereas I
1:45:35
Adam Curry: had this I think I had the story was it Raskin
1:45:37
wrongest resources on says I'm the wrong guy home you see maybe
1:45:43
the wrong I thought it was I wasn't then I thought it was I
1:45:48
thought it was Raskin no one's no one's given okay
1:45:53
John C Dvorak: does femurs to thigh bone you right now. Well,
1:45:56
at least I know my nose. Somebody had a broken bone but I
1:45:58
didn't think it was Raskin. I thought
1:46:00
Adam Curry: it was Raskin. I could be wrong. They threw
1:46:04
someone to get to the ground. They beat up somebody that was
1:46:07
Blumenthal. Same guy.
1:46:09
John C Dvorak: Oh, there he is. Yeah, Blumenthal undergo routine
1:46:12
surgery after fracturing femur. That's a hard bone to break
1:46:17
Adam Curry: with because they stomped on him. Of course. Not
1:46:20
playing along boy. Okay, well it wasn't Raskin. Blumenthal. No.
1:46:27
Wow, this is, well, this is you know, this is the new pipelines
1:46:30
as far as I'm concerned. We can view everything through this
1:46:33
Maoist lens as what's happening and it's really only in America.
1:46:39
Because you know, the EU they're in on it. They have they have
1:46:43
they have capitulated. They've capitulated
1:46:46
John C Dvorak: whereas as far as the EU is concerned that in my
1:46:49
opinion, they would just as soon see us go down anyway, we're a
1:46:54
pain in the ass. Yeah, always pushing them around. We're
1:46:57
bossy, true, true. And you know, you know it was fun while it
1:47:02
lasted.
1:47:04
Adam Curry: With that, I'd like to thank you for your courage in
1:47:06
the morning to you the man who put the sea in the communist
1:47:09
mile was con game ladies and gentlemen, please say hello to
1:47:11
my friend on the other end, Mr. John Cena
1:47:17
John C Dvorak: in the morning, you Mr. Adam, Kay, in the
1:47:19
morning all ships to see butts on the ground feet near subs in
1:47:21
the water and all the names and nights out there

1:47:31
many do we have here this morning? Wow, let me see. We've
1:47:35
got what 1983 For an Easter Sunday, I'd say not bad.
1:47:44
John C Dvorak: Yeah, people are probably going to church, bunch
1:47:46
of heathens,
1:47:47
Adam Curry: you know, the heathens we got the heathens
1:47:49

on the the mastodon no agenda social.com I'm Adam at no agenda
1:48:45
social.com He's Jhansi Dvorak at no agenda social.com And, you
1:48:50
know, it's it's a great place to hang up before you figure out
1:48:53
what nostril is just love to call it nostril so cool. But
1:48:59
really that is that is where people talk and hang out and and
1:49:03
of course you can we're federated so we're not blocked
1:49:06
and you can you can follow us from any Mastodon account. And
1:49:10
the artists also hang out there quite a bit. That's kind of
1:49:13
where they guessed you know who who was going to be the winner
1:49:18
of the art because we do pick a piece of art after every single
1:49:21
show was uploaded to no agenda, art generator.com And we want to
1:49:27
thank the artist for episode 1544. Nikko, same as we know him
1:49:33
who brought us the the Monday cupcake. No, no, a muffin. I'm
1:49:38
sorry, no muffins on Monday for Google, which was just a simple
1:49:43
I mean, a lot of people have done versions of a muffin.
1:49:47
Although I will say that now that I look at this, it does
1:49:49
look more like a cupcake than a muffin, but we'll let that
1:49:51
slide.
1:49:53
John C Dvorak: Let's see, especially with a lot of top
1:49:56
things to do with frosting.
1:49:57
Adam Curry: By the way, I got a note from one of our producers
1:50:00
And I thought it was, you know, we were wondering because this
1:50:03
was part of the story about Google clamping down on muffins
1:50:08
on Monday and staplers. And Bob says, you know, my first real
1:50:13
job in 1989 at a university, this is the content you don't
1:50:17
get if you skip over the donation segment, I shared a
1:50:20
communal office with my boss, she had so many staplers. This
1:50:24
is the point we were wondering why Google has so many staplers.
1:50:29
And now they cut back on the staplers and you could only get
1:50:31
the stapler from the central desk. What was the problem? So
1:50:35
Bob says she had so many staplers I finally realized it
1:50:39
was easier for her to order a new stapler because it comes
1:50:43
filled with staples, rather than figure out how to add staplers
1:50:47
to the old stapler. I think that's what's going on.
1:50:51
John C Dvorak: You're saying that they're so stupid at
1:50:53
Google. They don't know how to put staples into a stapler?
1:50:56
Adam Curry: I think they most of them can tell analog time.
1:51:01
John C Dvorak: That's probably true. And they probably can't
1:51:03
use a kit a handheld can opener.
1:51:06
Adam Curry: Exactly, exactly. I think it's very possible like
1:51:11
this. I'm gonna have to figure out how to put staples in this
1:51:13
thing. Just something go get a new one from the supply room. I
1:51:16
completely believe the Googlers are that way. And it was rampant
1:51:20
stapler abuse statement. Good title.
1:51:24
John C Dvorak: It's actually a believable story.
1:51:26
Adam Curry: Yeah. That's our boots on the ground. Man. People
1:51:29
know what's going on. So let's see. What else would we look at?
1:51:34
in the art world from our artists? For the previous
1:51:37
episode we had
1:51:38
John C Dvorak: really wasn't that much that was knocking
1:51:41
over. We kind
1:51:42
Adam Curry: of like tonton. Neil's cut back but the muffin
1:51:44
didn't look like a muffin. It looked like a house. And I No
1:51:47
offense. We both kind of like the banana. Oh, communist
1:51:51
Republic from capitalist agenda. That was I would say that was a
1:51:54
runner up for sure. With that with a fist coming out of the
1:51:58
banana, yeah,
1:51:59
John C Dvorak: the fist coming out of the banana. Yeah.
1:52:01
Unknown: That was pretty Yeah,
1:52:02
John C Dvorak: it was okay. It was. I liked it. But it wasn't.
1:52:05
I mean, I already probably gone with the wet using a newsletter,
1:52:08
which was Darren O'Neill's no agenda now it's fiber. Added
1:52:12
before I got to fist and that
1:52:15
Adam Curry: was the Yeah, you did use that the newsletter.
1:52:17
Yeah, that's simple, simple piece. What else should we have
1:52:22
John C Dvorak: done? There's a lot of take off the hand with
1:52:24
too many too many fingers. Yeah,
1:52:26
Adam Curry: I was okay. And then the dose dog was wrong. It's
1:52:29
just triggering just triggering. Stop it. The tantan yielded.
1:52:34
John C Dvorak: By the way the dose dog has gone on my Twitter
1:52:36
feed now. Oh, goodness.
1:52:37
Adam Curry: Let me check. Let me see if the dose dog is gone.
1:52:40
Yeah, because we got to get the Fed now of puppy. I wanted the
1:52:43
one on what the Fed and I'm telling you I'm feeling the Fed
1:52:46
now thing is going to be is going to be Elance first foray.
1:52:50
I'm calling it
1:52:52
John C Dvorak: there's a nice sacrilegious piece that's coming
1:52:54
up.
1:52:56
Adam Curry: Oh, there's no second best that one.
1:52:58
John C Dvorak: No, go back by Francisco Scaramanga. That's a
1:53:05
really that's a real real that's Yeah, it's funny, but it's very,
1:53:12
very bad.
1:53:12
Adam Curry: Yeah. Yeah, that's interesting. So the way it works
1:53:18
is after the show we take a look at the artists who obviously
1:53:21
have been listening live and then we we choose a piece we you
1:53:25
know, we try to have three separate elements the opening
1:53:28
quote, the title and the end the art all different, but somehow
1:53:33
related, never the same. Sometimes they are it does
1:53:35
happen it happened recently, in fact, and we're just tickled
1:53:39
pink with with all the love and attention that artists put into
1:53:43
it. We feel it really helps and I think it's proven that it
1:53:46
helps with people drawing attention to the show. It
1:53:49
certainly draws it well not on Twitter anymore because no one
1:53:53
sees me but you know, it's hot on the on the nostrils the
1:53:57
nostril people love our art, so
1:53:59
John C Dvorak: I'll get five of them.
1:54:01
Adam Curry: I'll keep Oh yeah, it's a little more than five.
1:54:04
I'll keep posting there. And but of course Macedon that's where
1:54:09
it really comes to life and we appreciate that so much and
1:54:13
Nikko Simon thank you so much for for your courage and for
1:54:16
producing a great piece of art for episode 5015 44 along with
1:54:21
our value for value model, because that's what it is. I
1:54:23
mean, you send us a boots on the ground report. I find the
1:54:26
stapler boots on the ground very that's very valuable. So we
1:54:29
appreciate that Bob, you know, people can do art. Many people
1:54:33
do things like our our knights or Daniel there who does the no
1:54:36
agenda meetup website. There's so much as being done void zero.
1:54:40
I mean, just people doing stuff everywhere to make the show
1:54:43
work. Yes.
1:54:45
John C Dvorak: I was gonna say now that I'm thinking I'm still
1:54:48
in still stuck in my brain rattling around. That has to be
1:54:53
correct. That the reason that they're they have the stapler in
1:54:58
this memo is because As people are actually ordering new staple
1:55:02
staplers maybe they actually think that you have to order a
1:55:06
new stapler for this fantastic purpose of you know, not
1:55:10
realizing that you can replace the staples that has to be it.
1:55:14
Adam Curry: That's why I put it in my in my notes and like this,
1:55:17
this is clearly what's going on
1:55:19
John C Dvorak: believable. But there's no other explanation.
1:55:24
Adam Curry: Is it really unbelievable? Yeah, I think it's
1:55:27
John C Dvorak: well to me, I mean, I didn't know some of
1:55:29
these people. I think they didn't know that dumb.
1:55:32
Adam Curry: We should add this to the test, you know, okay. See
1:55:35
if, if you have a Zoomer who could make a phone call on a
1:55:38
rotary phone and see if they can tell time on an analog clock and
1:55:41
see if they can replenish the stapler. This is like the Turing
1:55:49
test for more data
1:55:50
John C Dvorak: to be even more than to know so those are three
1:55:53
I think we can get it to five or six. I would like to solicit the
1:55:56
audience. To dream up more millennial questions to see more
1:56:00
millennials I would say Zoomers, let's take Zoomers to disqualify
1:56:04
Zoomers for good take taking a position in the company.
1:56:09
Adam Curry: So, pronouns is you're immediately out Oh, no
1:56:12
John C Dvorak: pronouns, you're
1:56:12
Adam Curry: out, you're out with pronouns. But if you can't
1:56:15
replenish the stapler, you cannot work in the curry Devorah
1:56:17
Consulting Group. This is our new hiring practice. Yes, we
1:56:20
discriminate. And we're proud of it. But
1:56:23
John C Dvorak: if you're a small enough company, you can get away
1:56:25
with a lot of this stuff.
1:56:27
Adam Curry: Let's thank our executive and Associate
1:56:29
Executive producers for episode 1545. And we kick it off right
1:56:35
away. This was quite the Easter surprise this morning from Baron
1:56:39
Jim Bob way. Who says sorry, donation is late. Baron JimBob

1:57:13
Again, this is value for value. This may not be much for the
1:57:16
Baron in the bareness. Maybe that's easy for them. It
1:57:20
certainly feels like a great amount of value to us. But even
1:57:23
if it's $33 and that's value to you, we're happy to thank you so
1:57:28
much. Behringer, Zimbabwe, and bareness. Marion's

1:57:35
our top three donors, all in four figures or more so. All

2:13:49
Unknown: Our formula is this we go out we hit people in the
2:13:53
mouth
2:14:11
Adam Curry: feel like we've done so much already? Would you like
2:14:12
to we can do a couple things here. There is some some latent
2:14:19
COVID stuff that seems to be popping up and is not a skip
2:14:22
that that's annoying. Oh, yes, I have a climate change clip which
2:14:28
I think is necessary to at least play. Because just when you
2:14:33
thought it couldn't couldn't get any crazier. It could. It's one
2:14:36
of the most
2:14:37
Unknown: exciting parts of the game. The crack of the bat the
2:14:41
moment you know, it's gone. It's gone. And this morning a new
2:14:46
study suggests one reason why sluggers may be hitting it out
2:14:49
of the park a little bit more often. There is a pretty simple
2:14:54
physical mechanism going on here, which is that when
2:14:57
temperatures rise, the air gets less dense. meaning that there
2:15:01
is less air resistance for balls flying through the air. This
2:15:04
study led by Dartmouth College scientists analyzed 100,000
2:15:07
Major League games and more than 200,000 balls hit in play their
2:15:12
findings, games played in warmer temperatures can lead to more
2:15:15
homeruns. Because of a reduction in ballpark air density,
2:15:19
we were able to
2:15:20
isolate the role of climate change by using what we call
2:15:22
climate model simulations.
2:15:24
Christopher Callahan, the lead author on the study says since
2:15:27
2010, more than 500 home runs can be attributed to global
2:15:31
warming. Over the last 40 years. The National Oceanic and
2:15:34
Atmospheric Administration says the average US temperature in
2:15:38
June July and August has increased by more than two
2:15:41
degrees. Scientists saying outdoor stadiums like Wrigley
2:15:45
Field in Chicago, which hosts a lot of day games will likely see
2:15:48
larger increases in home run rates over in close stadiums.
2:15:52
home runs have seen previous surges, like in 2019, when the
2:15:55
MLB even changed the size of its baseball's to decrease the
2:15:59
distance of travel. ESPN buster only says whatever the reason,
2:16:04
an increase in homeruns is good for the game. We saw at the end
2:16:07
of last year, when Aaron judge was chasing the American League
2:16:10
record for home runs. Everybody in baseball was watching that
2:16:14
fans were excited by that.
2:16:17
Adam Curry: Was there a problem with baseball ticket sales or
2:16:19
something? Does it Aaron ABC the network? Or you know what, what
2:16:24
is this bull crap?
2:16:26
John C Dvorak: Well, first of all, we have to realize that
2:16:29
they were paid to do this study by someone. Yeah. So there was
2:16:32
there's still money in global warming. Yep. What I think
2:16:37
baseball is up a little bit because they've changed a bunch
2:16:40
of rules and they're making the game faster. Now they have a
2:16:42
pitch clock. Oh, yes. Oh, it's in so many seconds. And again,
2:16:47
the batter can't keep getting in and out of the batter's box and
2:16:50
adjusting himself. And which, yeah,
2:16:54
Adam Curry: major, major league baseball on ABC, I believe.
2:16:58
John C Dvorak: So that would be that would be probably.
2:17:01
Adam Curry: How's that? How's that?
2:17:03
John C Dvorak: How's that? Yeah, everything's our house,
2:17:04
especially ABC owned by Disney. They did more of these than
2:17:07
anyone else. So I have a couple of clips that might be good in
2:17:12
this spot. Okay. First of all, since you talked about global
2:17:15
warming, let's go to the Brazil deforestation clip.
2:17:19
Unknown: Oh, no deforestation was up again last month in
2:17:22
Brazil's Amazon marches rate of destruction in the world's
2:17:25
largest rainforest road 14% over last year's figures. That's
2:17:29
despite promises by the new leftist government to crack down
2:17:31
on illegal activity and Paris Carrie Kahn reports.
2:17:34
According to Brazil Space Research Agency known as
2:17:37
inpaint, more than 130 square miles of the Amazon within the
2:17:42
country were cleared of trees and vegetation in March.
2:17:45
President Luis Inacio Lula DE SILVA has launched enforcement
2:17:49
crackdown since taking office January 1, pledging to reverse
2:17:53
years of permissive illegal clear cutting and mining by his
2:17:57
predecessor, former far right President Jair Bolsonaro slashed
2:18:01
environmental protections and prosecutions. Brazil's space
2:18:04
agency surveys the Amazon from August to July to avoid cloud
2:18:08
cover during the rainy season. In the first eight months of
2:18:12
that reporting period, deforestation rose nearly 40%
2:18:16
The previous year.
2:18:19
Adam Curry: I gotta go back to the baseball story. So what will
2:18:22
happen to golf? Do they have to now turn all par threes to par
2:18:25
fours because people are gonna be hitting
2:18:28
John C Dvorak: around? No. Yeah, because of golf balls gonna go
2:18:33
further. So you have to you have to get a
2:18:35
Adam Curry: par four. Oh, no problem. Part two.
2:18:37
John C Dvorak: I'm January arrow. Hello. There has to be a
2:18:39
par six.
2:18:40
Adam Curry: Don't talk to Adam about sports ball.
2:18:44
John C Dvorak: sports ball. Well, I was gonna point out that
2:18:47
this Silva's a big talker, the big left as he goes in there and
2:18:50
they made this thing gets worse but Okay. About Bowling,
2:18:56
Adam Curry: bowling. But how about actually, climate change
2:19:02
helps because I'll be using less gas to go as fast in my car. I
2:19:06
mean, it'll actually be good.
2:19:09
Unknown: Climate change that story? You're
2:19:11
Adam Curry: absolutely right. Climate change is good for
2:19:13
stopping climate change. So it should actually keep it in
2:19:16
check. What else can we think of?
2:19:19
John C Dvorak: It's self limiting.
2:19:21
Adam Curry: This is so so Bogota, HIV. Bug it
2:19:26
John C Dvorak: really is. So they got paid. This is the
2:19:30
moneymaker.
2:19:31
Adam Curry: We're stupid. We're dumb. We're the dummies here.
2:19:33
We're the dummies working for podcast peanuts.
2:19:37
John C Dvorak: We're podcasters and then we can do it but we're
2:19:39
doomed.
2:19:41
Adam Curry: We're doomed. We can't make money writing about
2:19:44
the ball flying further sports ball. I would be great at
2:19:47
writing about sports ball we're not we'd be a great
