Sam Seder Debates Centrist Democrat



calling from a 267 area code who's this we come from hi hello hello your name hello my name is Jeffrey hello Jeffrey well Jeffrey Jeffrey hey Don I'm long from Philadelphia okay Jeff from Philadelphia Jeffrey sorry good hey Don I just wanted to get something off my chest I uh I've been listening you guys for a lot what you particularly for a long time since air America we're on look like Chuck D and Rachel Maddow and whatnot so a long time and uh you know I remember when you know John Kerry was gonna be the savior of the Democratic Party so that's how far back I go but uh I just don't understand I mean I don't want to be you know it's not as you as much as say like Young Turks and oh god I'm gonna mention Jimmy Dore but I mean too late it's just one of the Democratic Party just stop being good enough I mean this a lasagna or kzo cortes thing is that's lovely but what does it really matter in the grand scheme of things she's not flipping a Republican seat she's not adding to the 218 number she's one of 435 senators should be a backbencher for two years at least right dares to go against the leadership she'll get stripped of all the community ships cuz that's how it works because you got a herd cats that's what it's all about right so I don't understand what I'm supposed to be all that excited well I think the exciting thing about her is that she's going in she's fundraising across the country for more progressive Katie's I mean if your agenda is to have a Democratic Party that is more progressive she is a traffic on my agenda my agenda is to have two hundred this is not the year for that that's the thing that's my problem my agenda is that 218 51 and 26 that's all I care about Hitler could come back from the dead and run as a Democrat and I would vote for him if it would mean that we had the majority backs cuz okay Ann has some swell okay okay this is not the time to run I understand it but wait wait really the Democratic Party so here's what there's no jumper so it's gentlemen to put up power free let me ask you a question let's just start let's just start at the margins who is going to who is going to get more Democrats to come out and vote Hitler or aoc that's cute but well no no dude no no she's wanting to get more Democrats to vote than Joe Connelly would then then her and Tommy wasn't good enough Joe Crowley I understand what was wrong with them yeah Crowley excuse me why don't you ask I understand why he wasn't good enough he would have gotten just as many Democrats use me we'll stop stop Doug didn't matter stop talking for a second you asked me a question let me answer it yeah I'm sorry I'll tell you why Joe Crowley didn't wasn't gonna get more Democrats out than Alexandria occasio Cortes and all I need to do is show you the numbers he lost he lost she has the ability to bring out more Democrats than Joe Crowley that's what the election proved she's going but if he had won it do you think if he had won this year we would not be talking about him do I think there's more Democrats in that district who are gonna vote for Joe Crowley than aoc I will bet you every single thing I own that her winning vote tally will be higher than almost any well certainly any off year election now we can't disaggregate returning the way that's gonna be reverie why it's not just gonna be her exactly exactly Jeffords so what are we learned wait a sec you better wait a second what have we learned that this period of time is actually the best time to get better Democrats in because it's agonised it's cause I want you reporting we just just agreed with me that she is going to get in work you mean nothing about government Jeffery on actress in New York are you joking excuse me Jeffrey you just her better Democrats I don't like what you consider better Democrat well okay that's the nut that's the issue okay that's fine if you want to disagree with me as to what makes a better Democrat but you have not a shred of evidence in fact you have a debate that wait let me tell you what the debate is and then we can debate it Jeffrey alright oh shoot where did he go yeah oh yeah no I'm gonna put it back in them Jeffrey I didn't hang up on Jeffrey listen I'm gonna bring you back into the queue but I want you to be quiet all right just just wait until I finished the premise I'm willing to debate with you what makes a better Democrat but if you want to argue to me that Joe Crowley will get more votes than Alexandra occasio cortes we can't test that because he already lost to her and when I say to you she's gonna get more votes than he has in any off year election in his history he was in for twenty years you say to me yeah but they're all gonna get that so if your premise is they're not as electable you have already disproven that premise so if you want to argue to me that andrew Cuomo is a better Democrat let's say then Cynthia Nixon I'm willing to have that argument with you but don't make it about getting elected because you've already lost that argument all right I will concede that point to you okay so I'm perfectly willing to I think Cynthia Nick deprived you want – I'm sorry glad why do I think Cynthia Nixon would make a better governor of New York State and Andrew Cuomo yeah Andrew Cuomo is horribly corrupt Andrew Cuomo's also horribly qualified as it also horribly qualified III don't know what that means I mean what in Cynthia Nixon what are Cynthia mix-ins qualification what will be her first order in office what does she know about anything other than acting what was during those first officers there England's opening that can be just as bad as corruption I agree with you I agree with you and I think there's definitely question as to whether or not she has the executive administrative skills to to do that that job I think that's a valid question I just think that Andrew Cuomo is incredibly corrupt and was I don't agree enabled the Republicans for the last eight years are you aware of the IDC yeah because he runs a state that isn't all New York City and that was that was since he makes his big mistake she ran like she was running for mayor of New York City nobody in Schenectady or Lackawanna or Buffalo gives a crap about the New York subway she won in those play now that's fine as long runs right she won upstate well it doesn't matter she still didn't run on issues they may may have voted for anyway but she didn't I listened to her and all her issues were pretty much New York City specific because she knew your business usually talking excuse me look at the map public in all look what the New York look at the electoral map all right the reason why Andrew Cuomo won is because he won New York City look at the map alright fair enough not to this another ending we don't ballad she is unqualified to be a governor of a large state not to mention the arrogance it takes to say it one day you know what I'm gonna try my for a you know be honest was that deep really random like the reason why she ran Jeff Jeffrey the reason why she ran was because people are trying to prevent Andrew Cuomo for running and being a viable candidate for the presidency and so sheer and essentially to win will never be a viable candidate for president I mean that's ridiculous well you know who thinks you're wrong he won't be you know who thinks you're wrong Andrew Cuomo yeah he was liking this call so far fine that's fine but I'm pretty sure Andrew I'm pretty sure Corey book there's gonna be the presidential nominee from the Democratic Party well that's amazing people's driveways you can't pay for that kind of publicity so right yeah all right well I but I don't understand what you're pointing I mean he's gonna be the guy uh well look I appointment I disagree my point is that suddenly it seemed that left wing wing Democrats have decided that being the left wing version of Trump and putting completely unqualified candidates up for election just because they're a celebrity in her case or their you know they have some kind of like or they don't the of course the the the purity test of they don't take corporate money you know that wait a second first the radicular stop Jeffrey did you really listen to me on air America or you confuse somebody else because I wasn't on I would tell you I was not on like Rachael show it Randy Rhoads and Mike Malloy and they Rachel Maddow and Chuck did you listen to my show there because all we did yeah was talk about about getting rid of the DLC and getting rid of corporate Democrats and we got a guy do you like Jon Tester yeah I know Jon Tester do you like Jon Tester he's alright I don't live in Montana so I don't really know the issues that he deals with there okay well you don't live in ie Democrat votes mostly we're Democrats right that's how you know what Jon Tester was doing Matt nor John test we do you know what John tester was doing when Marcus milita's found him as a way of defeating the DLC candidate he was a tractor he was also yeah that's fine working out that a GOP one outcome was okay that it's gonna be like that every time again I don't know guy in the White House the guy in the White House and that just proves your point so what are we talking about well I just saw a poll that said okay listen I just saw a poll of Democratic voters that voting against Trump is not enough to bring them out that's now maybe you have different data that's out there okay yeah well because people who did not vote listen listen just listen just listen yeah probably Jeffrey are voting for try understanding and what everything is you're forcing Democrats you go to those Republican effort instead of pandering to the Bernie bros no Jeffrey listen to me I don't know what you're talking about I just told you that people who didn't vote in 2016 are not gonna come out to vote to vote against Trump okay largely I imagine where are they gonna come out to vote for either probably gonna come out to vote at all well if not I mean you're arguing so what is the argument you're gonna get you're gonna get disaffected Republicans to vote because you know the reason I think GOP Oriya and Democrats there to go hunt for the votes of disaffected Republicans because they're not gonna go beg and for promised crap they can't sell like Medicare for all because they're one person and it takes at least two hundred and eighteen people to pass something like that just I don't understand what you see that's what you're saying that people in Peoria shouldn't support Medicare for all and no what I'm saying is that the minority party that is running should not be running on policy without a leader to lead it that's what I'm saying you can't have hi 218 people running around all espousing different policies that's not how it works well I Got News for ya they're all going around right message everybody get in lines like a jug rock dude dude they're all running on health care right now they're all running on health care and how are they gonna do that while Trump is president why are they running on health care right now they all of them see their poll II think it worked for the tea party it worked for the tea party anyone on anything they just went on we need Obama what are you talking about they why would my kid did you pay attention they didn't run they it's not just they ran on Obama they ran the whole Tea Party was started because of the bailouts cuz poor people are getting money because the government cuz they ran against they ran against health care it started it when Obama the nominee for president and it was gonna be but it didn't work with one rally we did gradual for inauguration day it didn't work when you break it didn't work when he thats also another good jeffrey they already call people like Nancy Pelosi socialists anyways it's irrelevant what the policy is no one I guess I got it because hi I'm Adolf Hitler you might disagree with me on my previous record however I do have executive experience Donald Trump is an asshole and Cynthia Nixon is absolutely outrageous in attempting to leave without experience it is time that we have a leadership that has put in the time you know it's nice about you know where they got that sink the trains ran on time I mean come on you know it's nice about this rising wave of left populist progressives democratic socialists or whatever you want to call them they want to give that guy healthcare – yeah I don't I was actually right especially a lack of undersize what was that guy's name the vast majority get health care the overwhelming majority of Democrats running successfully to the extent that we have polls for every race out there we don't but successfully they are running on health care that is when you look at the success that Democrats have had in the special elections health care was the overwhelming issue that they ran on if Cynthia Nixon began running as a state Rep I would respect this I know ever I would agree that I would not if I was Cynthia Nixon I wouldn't have focused so much on the subways I would have gone more for corruption I would have gone for broader issues earlier but that's a different question and just obvious though that she stepped out a grenade for us there was no other candidate like this is actually if anything the best way to look at Cynthia Nixon is she was a noble citizen activist absolute did a massive amount to you know we always say destroy the IDC essentially which has major implications for the state and Andrew Cuomo he took her a lot more seriously than the caller did because he was out spinning and trying to reinvent himself actually by the way going back to Bernie Sanders in 2016 was when Cuomo started to try to pivot when that guy got elected governor I do remember his first order of businesses at least as far as I know it was cut taxes for millionaires defin cut school funding yep and privatized schools and I would add up with to the reason why Cynthia Nixon ran is because no politician in New York would run against Cuomo there wasn't one that's why she ran and it was the same in 2014 bill de blasio wouldn't even formally endorse her like that's another thing the people needs I think it really gets through there that's Cuomo yeah de Blasio and Cuomo are enemies they have a Cuomo's tried to undermine him every step of the way they have all sorts of you know rivalry and and de Blasio's big like fu was I'm staying neutral let alone not having the hoods boat to run against him Cindy Nixon had to do that she do that like you would be the other person on the list and I don't mean that like as an insult I mean literally like literal there isn't a list literally yep I wrote about this in my op-ed for NBC like there were so so many factors the raid against her winning she was never gonna win and that's not what this was about but the idea that there's to make an argument that trying to get the most progressive candidates is going to hurt these candidates based upon zero data in fact all the data is running against that I'm not saying that Heidi Heitkamp should be out there saying well I think she should talk about expansion with Social Security and frankly you know some expansion improvement on health care they wouldn't hit in the health care the lawsuit Trump and min has to take away the mandate or what is it about to take away not just the mandate but also the pre-existing condition right the pre-existing condition and Heidi Heitkamp has been running on that yeah okay Heidi Heitkamp now Jeffery in Philly may know better than Heidi Heitkamp what's gonna work in no Dakotah even though he doesn't seem to know about what happens in montana but heidi heitkamp understand i mean health care has been running and it's it's not to privatize the system more it is she's from when she talks about the idea that they would roll back pre-existing conditions that is promoting the regulatory state the in what folks like Bernie and AOC have done is they have moved the conversation as to what is mainstream they have moved it to the left that is just the reality they weren't the only people that was happening at the end of the Obama administration to where you had the full complement of Senate Democrats come out and vote for expansion of Social Security which was a huge turnaround from just eight years earlier five years earlier four years earlier but it accelerated with Bernie and so that's where the value is now if you and if all you care about is getting Democrats in there to defeat Trump which I agree with which is why usage and you know said I'm we've got to get Andrew Cuomo elected and every other Democrat on the ticket elected because she also knows that when people go out and vote for Cuomo they go down the list and they check off ddd down in congress – right that's just the way that people vote we're gonna need to vote for ahead of Hitler if you have a problem if you have a problem with specific issues but you're trying to argue that Democrats are going to lose because they're moving left and there's no data to support that argument at all all we have is the data that we've seen it working across the state in fact the only major loss that we can point to in the special elections is down in Georgia with aasif and he had the same consultants that basically I think picked every other loser around which was ride the center also this I said it in more intense terms than I ever would have but like if you're if Democrats are winning by running Hitler like what is the point of having Democrats win like what what do you get from that yeah I mean I have to concede on that point I would say that if Hitler that that's a I'm pretty strong on this lesser of two evils and party block voting things but we don't know calm down there's running against it that's true Hitler could be running against double Hitler that's exactly it right yeah I could be running against Steve King and I won which case I vote for Hitler

Democrats Unleash GROUNDBREAKING Bill After Taking Back House



Democrats passed another piece of legislation and that is the for the people act this is a great piece of legislation as far as I'm concerned both from the perspective of it's good policy and it's good politics and one of the things that we were talking about you know as the Democrats take over the house was they need to start passing things that also help them maintain power but and it just so happens that there's a cross-section in that Venn diagram of things that are helped keep them maintained power and also are based on democratic values and just simply justice and that of course is voting reform so the bill includes a requirement that all states automatically registered voters who submit paperwork to a state government agency unless the person opts out so that's you know motor voter registration that it's I mean it expands it whatever business you would have with the state Medicaid anything good stuff provide same-day voter registration in every state allow 15 days of early voting with sites located near public transportation use nonpartisan redistricting Commission's to draw new congressional maps this is like the whole thing they like greg sargent called for the other day an able online voter registration count provisional ballots from eligible voters filed at wrong polling place and use paper ballots in addition to electronic voting systems it would ban post release felon disenfranchisement so that's 5 million americans would regain their voting rights bill however would still allow states to disenfranchise people while they're in prison states would be banned from engaging in voter caging which is that stuff like cross-check it would be impermissible for states to remove someone from the voting rolls for failing to vote in a previous election which is often used if you haven't voted in the past election you got a letter and you didn't return it you get kicked off the rolls Election Day would be a federal holiday for two million plus federal workers and non-government employers would be encouraged to give the day off to private sector employees that doesn't go far enough in my own mind it should be a national holiday but colleges and universities would to be designated as voter registration agencies absentee ballots would no longer require postage so you wouldn't get votes thrown out or be any more difficult to vote that way it would increase funding to help States update and secure election infrastructure the election assistant commission would oversee these updates and mandated reports on its progress so we get a sense of what's going on around the country the election systems would be deemed critical infrastructure it went on to say to resolve some declarations and findings which will basically be the premise for future legislation that will be introduced soon including fixing the Voting Rights Act section 5 we've been talking about this for four years since the Supreme Court rolled it back in 2013 that representative Terry Sowell Sewell from Alabama will introduce its legislation which will move on a separate track during the committee's there's also the bill also asserts support for statehood for District of Columbia protects Native American voting rights and the right to vote in US territories it also addresses campaign finance reform and this is the most interesting part it creates a public financing system for house elections that provide six dollars in public funds for every $1 in funds raised from donations up to $200 so people understand that now New York City has a very similar program in fact that reminds no Mickey Kant's is running for public advocate in the next eight days I think it is your donation of up to I think it is two hundred and fifty dollars will be matched by the city by eight times so if you donate ten bucks to her or twenty five bucks to her if you vote if you donate ten bucks to her it's gonna be worth eighty if you vote a hundred dollars it's gonna be worth $800 to her and I believe this goes until the next eight days so we've got a link at majority dot F M to uh to her site go and do that no pitch for membership today just go do that but this but aside from that the New York City one is a is a great program and this would be great to have nationally in addition it also includes the disclose Act which mandates that nonprofits and other group groups disclose their sources when they contribute to election campaigns a lot of these 503 C ones now that purport to be nonpartisan this is the way that they get dark money into campaigns the packaged honest ads require act requires the disclosure of digital political ads on tech platforms the FEC would be reconfigured from six members to five to prevent deadlocks on important issues it's more often than not they just they deadlock and nothing happens coordination between super PACs and candidates would be more clearly defined and banned there's also assertions and findings that would implicate future legislation including a declaration that the Constitution should be amended to overturn not just Citizens United but also Buckley v Valeo the bill states an intent to ban anonymous shell companies from funding campaigns to prevent the potential for secret foreign money to seep into elections and then there's some ethics reforms as well and the Supreme Court would be covered under that ethics code so Ginni Thomas might have to find a different job rather than being a conduit to her husband and right wing money so this is all good stuff and here is Nancy Pelosi basically gaveling in and expressing what they intend to deal with in the democratically controlled Congress this Congress must accelerate a future that advances America's preeminence in the world and opens up opportunities for all building an economy that gives all Americans the tools they need to succeed in the 21st century public education workforce development good-paying jobs and secure pensions we have heard from too many families who one during this time of innovation and globalization if they have a place in the economy of the future we must remove all doubt that they do and say to them individually we will have an economy that works for you [Applause] to address the disparity of income in America which is at the root of the crisis of confidence felt by so many Americans as Justice Brandeis said we may have democracy or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of the few but we cannot have both we must end that injustice and restore the public's faith in a better future for themselves and their children there you have it so that is day one for the Democrats in the house

Democrats Call For Trump To Be Arrested And Imprisoned



yeah I'm gonna keep talking about how there's gonna be some massive conflict of some sort I mean we're in it right we're in some kind of cultural Civil War I did not come up with that term it was used by many people associated with the left at vidcon and before then several years ago so yes something's happening and we can see from this story quote I want to see Trump in prison Nancy Pelosi tells top Democrats that they should focus be focused on criminal prosecution of the president rather than impeachment let me explain to you why it's all gonna come crashing down at some point remember when Trump was chanting lock her up over and over again and many people in the crowd joined in the Democrats claimed that was dangerous rhetoric that you can't talk about imprisoning your political opponents you can blame Trump for starting it I suppose but it was the New York Times and The Associated Press that broke the story about the email scandal in the server from Hillary Clinton yes public officials destroying records is a crime did Hillary Clinton get in trouble for it no because it's complicated we'll see what happens as these stories develop but now Nancy Pelosi wants Trump to go to jail where do you think this ends do you think locking Trump up is going to end with people being like well gee gosh darn you know the presidents in jail no it's gonna end up with people shrieking and it's gonna end up with a dramatic escalation in fact the rhetoric itself is a dramatic escalation when they complained that Trump was calling for Hillary Clinton's imprisonment it was a bad thing but now it's a good thing sure let's read this story before we get started go to Tim cast calm slash donate if you'd like to support my work there is a monthly donation option of crypto option a physical address and it is more important than ever because YouTube is purging channels from the partner program who knows how long I have many people think that I'll get wiped out at some point possibly maybe not I tried to be a dick but sometimes gonna be angry well see what happens but the best thing you can do is just like and comment on the video share and subscribe so the story from the Daily Mail says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly told top Democrats that she wants to see President Donald Trump in prison lock him up huh Pelosi remarks came in a meeting on Tuesday with top House Democrats including Judiciary Committee Chair Jared Nadler who was aggressively pushing for impeachment not to be outdone miss Pelosi now says don't focus on a beach mitt go straight for imprisonment I don't want to see him impeached I want to see him in prison Pelosi said Pelosi who fears political disaster if MP Trent proceedings are launched without broad public support argued that it would be better to see Trump defeated in the next election and then criminally prosecuted as a private citizen yeah because that won't lead to ridiculous outrage from people Pelosi is walking an increasingly thin line as the clamor for impeachment grows in her caucus despite her insistence that before impeachment there needs to be broad public support and bipartisan backing neither of which has materialized in addition to Nadler who has been battling behind the scenes to control any impeachment investigation the other Democratic House committee chairs were present at the meeting Ashleigh at en a Pelosi spokeswoman told POLITICO that Pelosi and the Chairman had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Muller report what a quote a fine time the Democrats are spinning in circles unsure of how to deal with their fracturing base we're still chasing after this was going into three years of complete psychosis around Russia gate there they've now transitioned off of Trump colluded with the Russians and the Russians might shut down our electricity in the winter miss Rachel Maddow claims now going into well Trump obstructed justice or at least maybe no determination was made by Muller and Muller who this I heart it's just how insane I can't see this D escalating when the politicians are calling for him for imprisonment of each other when they're trying to impeach President Trump instead of actually dealing with his concepts ideas and defeating at the election in the election they're going for impeachment imprisonment and then at the ground level we see people beat the crap out of each other and the news is going insane how could anyone not conclude that we're in a downward spiral of destruction and then you also to consider several important details like how about that every 80 years is a major conflict with the United States or how about that empires tend to last around 250 years how long has it been yeah do the math well see what happens so I don't want to be too like I'm not I'm not I don't want to wave my arms and scream the end is nigh but I certainly feel like something is is happening certainly a lot of people get lulled into the sense of oh it'll never happen yes things happen no one thought there'd be a great war between all of the superpowers of the world and then it happened people didn't believe the first Civil War was gonna happen IIIi could be wrong about this I'm not a historian but I read a story about how and one of the first battles people were standing around like watching having picnics laughing thinking there's no way there will be a civil war and then one of the bloodiest Wars ever happened so who knows it's gonna happen I tell you what there's a video I'm gonna talk about it in my next my next video from the next segment some dudes jumped out of a car and started beating up on some Trump supporters where do you think we're at you know it's I think we are in the armament phase we are in the resource phase they're trying to strip resources and economic economic resources from many conservatives and independence because before you can get into the full-on conflict however whatever form it takes you need to make sure that you have a dis report you you win the war before you start it take away the resources build up the resources for yourself then when something actually happens be it a physical conflict or who knows then they see you can thinkin squash the enemies but let's get back to the Trump imprisonment idea on Wednesday the rebuffed Nadler appeared peevish when he told CNN that there is not currently enough backing for impeachment among Democrats in the House of Representatives there is not appear to be support for it now and we will see the support made develops at neither whose committee has jurisdiction over impeachment related matters we are investigating all of the things we would investigate frankly in an impeachment inquiry he then paused for several seconds when asked if he and Pelosi were on the same page what when that decision has to be made it will be made not by any one individual it will be made probably by the caucus as a whole certainly Nancy will have the largest single voice in it at a news conference on Wednesday Pelosi was asked about calls from progressives for impeachment proceedings I'm not feeling any pressure palsy respondent make no mistake we know exactly what path we are on we know exactly what actions we need to take and while that may take some more time than people wanted to take I respect their their impatience Nadler vowed on Wednesday to go to court quickly in his quest to obtain the full unredacted Muller report on Russian election interference saying lawmakers would not be made fools of by an offer by the Trump administration to negotiate over the document Nadler said he expects to ask a federal court soon to enforce his April 19th subpoena for special counsel Robert Miller's report and underlying material an approach to the court will come as soon as possible after a vote in the in the Democratic controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday on holding Attorney General William bar in contempt of Congress I anticipate that will be very quick there may be an appeal and will ask for an expedited appeal so I want to I want to pause here real quick contempt of Congress for Bar subpoena in filing a subpoena for the full unredacted report calling for the imprisonment of trump bill bar has said he believes trump was spied on I haven't followed the story to closest I don't want to get too much into it but it does sound like there's some kind of internal deep state civil war happening it's been going on for a while I'd imagine the depending on how conspiratorial you want to get I don't know but this is politicking to the extreme I mean more so than I've seen in my life maybe it's been worse at other times I'm not old enough perhaps but you've got there they want to imprison the president Nancy Pelosi does they're trying to impeach him they're trying to remove him not for his policies or as bad ideas are trying to move him because I don't just just they're opposed to him you then see Bill Barr coming in siding with the president and it really does feel like we are seeing a civil war in soft power within the government where does this lead if you if the if the two sides keep getting further and further split pushed further and further away at some point people will feel like the system is pointless and that's when things get truly dangerous I think is extremely dangerous that they're calling for the imprisonment of the president the issue with Hillary Clinton went with calling for her imprisonment is a bit different in that she was a private citizen my she was a private citizen that for the most part I believe but calling her out for the email scandal and stuff sure that was before she was actually elected now Trump won they do this whole rush of collusion nonsense thing and when that fizzles out they shift so there is a diff friends here I think the rhetoric in both regards is still potentially dangerous but I don't like the idea of a neo politician being above a lot Trump included however what we're seeing is in my opinion complete desperation outside of the issues so in my next video I want to talk about you know the the collapse the coming whatever you want to call it because it's not just my opinion we've seen people on the Left we've seen security experts talking about this and this rhetoric is playing straight into it but there's some interesting data presented by awesome researchers and some journalists showing how this all began and I mean the internet really did precipitate this this pending collapse the way everything's working people are just losing their goddamn minds I would stress that calling for the impeachment of the president is unhinged calling for the imprisonment of the president is unhinged it has not is no basis in reality to me it's it's absolutely insane that Moeller comes out and says if we could have exonerated we would have at the same time you could take the exact same statement and say if we could have presented evidence he committed a crime we would have they didn't our legal system does not work that way you are not guilty or innocent you're guilty or not guilty there could be evidence you've committed a crime if there's not enough evidence we still think you did the crime but we're not going to punish you for it you can be upset and think that Trump tried to commit obstruction of justice Moeller didn't say that this is how it gets insane and I look this is going to be a dramatic escalation stick around for the next segment it will be at 4 p.m. youtube.com slash Tim cast I believe it's probably the first time in the podcast so if you already listened on the podcast well then a different segment will begin now but thanks for hanging out stick around and I will see you in the next story you

FEMININST Politician Kamala Harris Makes RIDICULOUS Claims GENDER PAY GAP IS UP TO 47%



welcome to the video guys so the Democratic politician Kamala Harris appeared at the big ideas forum being hosted by the Democratic leaning organization move on which gave a five-minute speech on her big idea to end the gender pay gap she thinks exists before taking questions on the subject as we all know this is a baseless claim made by radical feminists who think a woman working four hours a day five days a week should be paid the same as a guy working 12 hours a day six days a week they ignore any mitigating factors to get their figures which we'll hear this u.s. Democratic politician spout some fantastical figures for what she considers the oppressed victims of the white patriarchy now after her speech an animal rights activists clerk climbs on the stage and approaches in a fairly calm manner attempting to take the mic from her to raise his own issues which the announcer is quick to show over so I could not make out what was said before he was bundled off by security she is lucky in the UK that could have been a milk shake now let's watch her full speech and then go over some of the points she makes and watch the activist storm in the stage Wow so before we go into our ridiculous speech what the actual fuck was that dance is their name Teresa may why did his cringy politicians think is a good idea to dance across the stage he looked ridiculous it's not cool people are laughing at you not with you [Applause] [Applause] 1963 what happened many things Equal Pay Act was passed so that said hey look women aren't paid equally as men for the same amount of work so we need to obviously have a law about it because otherwise we can't get people to do the right thing 1963 is past I love how she brings up a law that rubbishes her claims before she even makes them how did this woman become a politician she must be dumb as a plank to not realize by citing this law that come in more than 50 years ago making companies pay women the same man as men do when doing the same job but of course she was skewed a day or two fit her narrative so let's continue 2019 women are paid 80 cents on the dollar to men black women 61 cents Native American women 58 cents Latinas 53 cents I like the cap that you're wearing enough exclamation point right enough because it's not a debatable point it's not a debatable point it has been the case for decades that women are paid less than men for the same work so that's off the table for discussion is it an issue so here she throws out some figures on the gender pay gap how women get 80 cents on the dollar compared to men black woman gets 61 cents a Native American woman gets 58 cents and a Latino woman gets 53 cents on the dollar and how that is not debatable well I would debate that with you right now let's start with the obvious if a company could pay women or any group for that now almost half of what they had to pay the of the workforce they would only ever employ that women because I have some shocking revelations for feminists in 2019 companies only care about making money so would never pay more than they have to for labor the stupidity of people baffles me this is basic common sense for anyone who lives in the real world then let's not forget the countless studies done that refused these baseless claims these radical feminists constantly push and then maybe they meet at the food truck or on the elevator or you know old school at the watercooler right and they're talking about I don't know what they got the kids for their birthday so she starts off a big idea placing a woman working next to a man who worked the same job but a woman thinks he has paid more than her and automatically thinks he has been paid more because he is a man what she should be considering is the type of job that they do is in a target based position with commissions or bonus depending on performance do they work the exact same hours or the same amount of days I know it she conveniently leaves out the amount of hours worked in her speech she has to disregard that fact to continue with a nonsensical big idea I guess I'd like to know if if John and I are getting paid the same amount supervisor says so then she goes to EEOC and they say well you know give us some more information have you kind of do you have anything else right so that means she's got on her own started investigating and then maybe if she gets enough she can take a complaint and then maybe she even has to take it to court to sue on the issue sue the employer which means she's got come out of her own pocket for a lawyer no they won't say we need more information they will say your wages are based on hours worked or performance depending on the pay scheme your employer has now this will all be of course in the plot in line with the law they won't make you investigate they will put you straight with the facts since they have access to them you know they work out you'll pay each week or each month so they know this information and we're putting the burden on her to make sure the employer is doing what by law they're required to do so here's my big idea okay right so what I am requiring and will require when elected president of the United States will shift to the employer to prove that they are paying women the same amount as men for the same work well that will be easy as the law already makes them do that since when you use the correct data to make the analysis they are equal all they're about your imaginary statistics won't hold up against the data now I'll come for a couple hair on her ambition she must really believe she has a chance to become president of the United States given the level of statistical ignorant as shown in her speech or trust the American people would not elect this fraud also enforcement so I am also prepared as part of my initiative and my big idea to say to those corporations until you are paying women equally for the work they are performing for every 1% differential between what the woman is making versus what the man making so let's say there's a 1% differential now let's go further because it's more accurate let's say there's a 5 to 10 to 20 percent differential well for every 1% differential you have to pay a fine of 1 percent out of your profits from the year before so she says that she is into enforcement but from the comment section on the live stream the people do not agree with her claiming she ignored white-collar crime because it was hard to prosecute and she even refused to prosecute a case her department had gathered evidence on and hurt her to move forward with a prosecution but she declined to do so so yeah she is all about enforcement if it's easy or it suits her I guess she then goes on to claim she will tax companies 1 percent of last year's profits for every 1% difference between men and women's pay which weren't there any tax fines since it's already against the law to pay women less she admitted this herself at the start of the speech guess her memory does not extend past a few moments ago [Applause] you gotta pay 5% as a fine of what your profits were the year before and where is that money gonna go well you know we've been talking a lot about the need for family leave but what we really need is paid family leave that money is gonna go into a fund for paid family leave so that's those women also who invariably are the ones who have to leave work to take care of a sick child or an aging parents can also get paid while they are doing that important work so there you see her big idea is to tax companies that break her imaginary wet gender wage gap promising it will fund paid leave for women who need to look after children which is all good but the tax won't get any money since the companies in question are literally not allowed to pay women less than men for doing the same job while working in the same hours under the same conditions it's insane as supposedly educated person would spout this shit in 2019 now let's take a look at the animal rights activist storm the stage causing the panel to completely shit themselves while the announcer does her best to drown out the invaders message in case it disagrees with their narrative I'm guessing although he's an animal rights activist so I doubt he's gonna be too much against what they're on about but watch the clip and we'll have a look it is quite funny on implementation of your first big idea on the gender pay gap not everyone works for corporation and a big thank you monster for your big idea but we want to make sure that we are able to get through this okay it's okay folks it's okay people have their own big ideas they have their own big ideas yeah but we also want to make okay higher being respectful to our folks that have come here to speak to us just to be respectful for all the folks that are out here yeah we so as you can see you don't really storm the stage he comes up quite calm and in no way aggressively in my opinion but these women look at him like he's fucking Ted Bundy the terror in their face is real over a complete non-issue the best moment is when Kamala Harris exit stage left sharpish she was off I thought she was off on her fucking toes away from the savage man oppressing her so that's gonna be the end of the video guys this feminist politician is completely brainwashed with the feminist ideology and rubbishes her own claims before she even starts along with one of the cringy stances on stage I've ever seen in my life they let me know what you think down in the comments below and remember to hit the like button and share this video as it helps the channel a lot I'll see you all in the next video man's gonna kill this shit you need SWAT and medics to offer

Democrats in the Vice | The Andrew Klavan Show Ep. 711



Washington is in an uproar and all abuzz and in a buzzing uproar and a bra rias buzzing roar of buzz eNOS about Robert Robert Muller's latest statement on the Muller report Muller said quote I come before you today to clarify my report by making vague accusations and contradictory statements until even the things we thought we knew become uncertain and the things that were uncertain become entirely incomprehensible unquote Muller then refused to take questions saying that could only confuse matters because he himself didn't understand what he just said Democrats on the campaign trail reacted to the statement immediately Kamala Harris told reporters quote Muller's latest statement makes it absolutely imperative that we continue to distract people from the fact our policies will destroy the country unquote Joe Biden chimed in by telling a ten-year-old girl my god but you're beautiful and you smell so nice let me touch you unquote and beta O'Rourke repeatedly shouted hello is anybody there into an empty auditorium in the House of Representatives congressman Jerry Nadler addressed a group of trolls who are carrying the great battering ram grande to the kingdom of Gondor saying quote before Muller clarified his report rendering it incomprehensible we might have gone ahead with impeachment and unsworn Ark our party and our country asunder but after his statement that's still the plan now fly fly my fellow trolls and do not return until you have laid waste to Menace Tirith unquote House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reacted to the Muller statement by saying quote until now I have tried to silence the voices calling for impeachment because those voices were disembodied and seemed to come from everywhere at once making me think I might have imagined them like that time I woke up in Sacramento married to an enormous stuffed panda because I thought I heard and proposed to me when that was really coming from the toaster unquote Pelosi then refused to take questions because it worked for Muller and he didn't make any sense either trigger warning I'm Andrew Clavin and this is the Andrew Clavin show one of the wonderful things about listening to this show for all of you is you get to hear tomorrow's news today because I tell you what's gonna happen next and then it does happen because I'm always right about everything as I told you after hearing Robert Muller say whatever the hell he said yesterday by emphasizing that he didn't exonerate Donald Trump and that he felt he was barred from prosecuting the president and that the remedy for presidential law breaking is with Congress ie impeachment he increased the pressure on the Democrats to impeach without changing the political equation even one tiny little bit because in order to impeach the Democrats still have to stop the country's business cold in order to make the argument the Trump didn't obstruct an investigation into something that never happened but oh he sure wanted to and it might have happened so the election no longer counts then if they actually did decide to impeach on that logic it would be tossed out of Congress and approximately the time it takes Mitch McConnell to say get this garbage out of Congress so once again our James Comey an investigator opens his fat mouth when he shouldn't hoping to get a Donald Trump and instead he blows up the Democrats maybe they should appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump keeps getting them to do that and what does Taylor Swift have to do with it nothing but I want to talk about her to light scream you know I I know you do this I do it you spend money with your credit card you don't think it's money the bill comes in and if you can't pay it the interest rates are in the double digits it's insane what credit card how credit cards charge you when you don't pay up you can be a lot smarter by paying off your credit card balances with a credit card consolidation loan from light stream you can get a fixed rate as low as five point nine five percent APR with Auto pay and you could save thousands of dollars in interest get a loan from five thousand dollars to a hundred thousand and there are no fees you can even get your money as soon as the day you apply plus Xtreme is a division of SunTrust Bank one of the nation's largest financial institutions so you can have complete peace of mind if you want to save even more my listeners get an additional interest rate discount the only way to get this discount is to go to light stream dot-com / Andrew that's Li gh TS TR e am dot-com / Andrew this is subject to credit approval rate includes 0.50% auto pay discount terms and conditions apply and offers a subject to change without notice visit light stream comm / andrew for more information thank you for all the fan mail i got yesterday on the opening I got all this fan mail on the opening / the fact that I named a character dr. Geraldo Vaughn Zippity noodle and cracked a lot of people up I reminded me of a long time ago when I was a young writer on the way up I was a liberal I was working for the most radical paper and I was freelancing for the most radical paper in New York called The Village Voice which closed after I left it of course but I would write these satirical pieces and one day an editor called me up and they and said I don't get this satire it's just a bunch of funny names and I said no no you don't understand they're funny names but she wouldn't listen to me anyway yesterday you know you remember James Comey yesterday in his Washington Post op-ed he made the case that he couldn't have been conspiring against Trump one of his reasons was because his blabbermouth appearance after the Hillary Clinton investigation where he came out and said oh she was guilty but she didn't intend to do it so she's not guilty so we're not we're not gonna prosecute her which was none of his business it wasn't his role to say it and he said well I had to say it because Loretta Loretta Lynch had no credibility because she met with Bill Clinton blah blah blah blah and he said you know then when because of his screw-up he had to say publicly that he was reopening the email investigation right before the election he screwed Hillary over and Hillary lost votes over that and I think that did contribute to her losing the election so his argument was invited out to get Donald Trump why would I blow up Hillary Clinton and the reason was you're an egotistical incompetent that the reason I think his calculation was he thought that he was going to be made to look bad because Hillary was obviously guilty and Loretta Lynch was gonna Scotch the investigation she was gonna throw she had already made the decision she was not gonna do anything about this there was no way there was no way the Obama Justice Department was going to prosecute Hillary Clinton no matter how guilty she was I think Comey thought that was gonna make him look bad and you know his sanctimonious idea of himself as the angel of our protection was gonna go down the drain so he thought he was gonna come forward and explain that he really did get her and he was gonna slap her around and then he was gonna say yes but she didn't intend to do it so and that was not part of the law by the way she didn't have to intentionally release classified information to be guilty but he just decided he was gonna throw that in and so fights Marmol ii self-serving himself I mean he's now become this kind of smarmy figure who goes around everyone's embarrassed by him I think but Trump has this magic power to get people to do stuff that blows them up he's done it again and again starting with Marco Rubio making all these jokes about his fingers and Jeb Bush trying to make himself look like a you know an active guy because he called him low-energy Jeb I mean he just has a way of getting people to blow themselves up by trying to sink to what they think is his level so Muller essentially did this I think Muller you know it took me a while to kind of get through it was very confusing what Muller said and what he did especially when compared to his report but the money shot was this it was when he said basically that he couldn't do anything but Congress should in other words that he was confirming the Democrats in their narrative that he had given them a blueprint for impeachment let's listen to that again we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so we did not however make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime the introduction to the volume 2 of our report explains that decision it explains that under long-standing department policy a president president can to be charged with a federal crime while he is in office that is unconstitutional even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view that too is prohibited the special counsels office is part of the Department of Justice and by regulation it was bound by that department policy charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider so this is a big deal because the time remember the New York Times when AG bar came out and gave his letter about the report saying that it exonerated Trump on collusion and they were they the doj bar and rod Rosen saying we're not going to prosecute on obstruction and the time said this is terrible because he sees the narrative because this is all that matters to the Democrats and the New York Times but I repeat myself right this is all one group trying to set the narrative because they believe that narrative is reality and they think of course it has it is reality to in the to the extent if you they can get you to buy their narrative you will vote the way they want you to and they have been furious that AG bar seized the narrative saying essentially that Trump was not guilty which is obviously what the report did say the report did say that there was no evidence we found no evidence of collusion and then it went on into this whole obstruction thing so he's going it to take back the narrative I just can't find any other conclusion you can make and then he stuck the Democrats in this terrible position and this this was Muller after his statement okay maybe that wasn't Muller but that's I think what he was thinking because now now you remember I pointed out there are a couple of things in the report it says he's he says the report is my statement in his statement he said the report is my statement which raises the question while you're making the statement all the same reporters a statement said that they found they identified no evidence of collusion and in his statement he had this confusing thing where he said we didn't disprove a wider conspiracy or whatever but in the report it says no ever of collusion Trump is absolutely right about this but then he says that if it had not been ever what is called the OLC I think it's the office of legal counsel their statement that you can't prosecute the president and in office that he kind of suggests that he would have prosecuted but he didn't because he couldn't and and here this is from Fox News they played what I talked about yesterday the disparity between the way bars said it when he was testifying in Congress and what Muller said at his statement special counsel Muller stated three times to us in that meeting in response to our questioning that he emphatically was not saying that but for the OLC opinion he would have found obstruction under long-standing department policy a president president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider so today the DOJ and Muller's office the special counsels office released a joint statement that said this the Attorney General has previously stated that the special counsel repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that but for the OLC opinion he would have found the president obstructed justice the special counsels report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president committed a crime there is no conflict between these statements so that clarifies that that's I yes they say sounds to me like a conflict but what you know I never went to law school so I guess I can't really understand gobbledygook when people are contradicting each other I'm gonna talk about ring you know I like this stuff because it keeps you safe ring makes devices that help you see who is at your door they turn on floodlights automatically when people come on it's their mission to make neighborhoods safer you probably know about their smart video doorbells and cameras these protect millions of people everywhere ring helps you stay connected to your home

how do you spell Clavin it's que la vie a n and so Trump unleashed on the mall this morning with a flurry of tweets he says the greatest presidential harassment in history after spending four hundred forty million dollars over two dark years with unlimited access people resources and cooperation all true highly conflicted Robert Muller would have brought charges if he had anything but there were no charges to bring that anything is all caps and Trump then said Russia Russia Russia this is all tweets Russia Russia Russia that's all you heard at the beginning of this witch-hunt hoax and now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected it was a crime that didn't exist some people made fun of him for saying I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected as if it was admitting Russia I got a elected but he follows that by saying it was a crime that didn't exist he says so now the Dems and their partner the fake news media say he fought back against this phony crime that didn't exist this horrendous false accusation and he shouldn't fight back he should just sit back and take it could this be obstruction no Muller didn't find obstruction either presidential harassment so Shapiro made the excellent point an excellent point I thought that if if there was no way he could charge Trump if there was no way Muller could charge Trump because the OLC didn't allow it because the Department of Justice guidelines didn't allow it why was why did he spend 20 million of our dollars investigated in the first place I mean you investigate you know when you investigate espionage you investigate to see if anything went on but when you investigate crime you have to believe that there was a crime committed and you're trying to find proof of that crime if there was no point in finding proof of that crime why do it why and why did he spend all this time and put that you know there is this real sense that I'm getting that Muller is another one of these guys who hates Donald Trump and rush limbaugh made an also excellent point of saying when Comey came out talking about Clinton he said she didn't intend to commit a crime that was a crime that didn't need intent to actually be committed right she did the thing that she was not supposed to do that's all the law says that she had to do to be guilty of that crime but now they're saying well Trump intended to obstruct justice even though he didn't he clearly I doubt you know he clearly cooperated with the entire investigation so why is it a crime to intend something but not do it but it's not a crime to do something because you didn't intend it it makes absolutely no sense so all of this again all of this just makes the whole Muller thing look like a political hit it does make it look it look it makes Trump look better and this is in this idea that Muller was pushing the Congress toward impeachment it's very hard to avoid that and of course the impeachment drums are in fact growing both in the media and in the Democrat Party but I repeat myself Jerry Nadler this is his reaction to to this statement yesterday although Department of Justice policy prevented this Special Counsel from bringing criminal charges against the president the special counsel has clearly demonstrated that President Trump is lying he is lying about the special counsels findings lying about the testimony of key witnesses in the special counsels report and above all lying and saying that the special counsel found no obstruction and the no collusion in his statement this morning special counsel Muller reaffirmed his report it found substantial evidence that Russia attacked our political system that the Trump campaign benefited from Russian interference that Trump and those around him repeatedly welcomed Russia's support and that throughout the subsequent investigation Trump sought to obstruct Muller time and time again special counsel mother today repeated three central points which are critical for the American people one the special counsel did not exonerate the President of the United States of obstruction of justice – obstruction of justice of which special counsel mullet found substantial evidence is a serious crime that strikes at the core of our justice system 3 the Constitution points to Congress to take action to hold the president accountable for his misconduct so I mean this is like a train that is really gathering steam the Atlantic Monthly now has a their cover is just the word impeach you know obviously the press is picking this up in Pelosi she still knows look they're still saying that Trump tried to obstruct intended to obstruct but never obstructed an investigation into a crime he didn't commit that is their logic there is no logic there it's gonna it's there'll be a laughingstock now look I can't make predictions maybe Trump is so toxic maybe people hate him so much whatever happens they'll just grab hold of it but Pelosi seems to know she's still playing down the pressure she's under to impeach I'm very proud of her our House Democrats that have been very shall we say conscientious about how they breached their decisions and I think it's like 35 of them out of 238 maybe a 38 of them out of 238 have said that they all wanted to be outspoken on impeachment and many of them are reflecting their views as well as those of their constituents many constituents want to impeach the president but we want to do what is right and what gets results what gets results and we have to remember so yes there are some and the press makes more of a fuss about the two it's 38 and the 200 who are over half of the Congress after half of the of the Democrats in the house sit on one of these six committees so they're all on a path of finding more information so this is her narrative that 38 out of the 238 Democrats in Congress are pushing for impeachment of course those are the 38 in blue districts so they don't have to worry about moderates coming up and saying hey you know why you wasting time while actually dealing with health care immigration whatever they want you to deal with but all the rest of them she is saying I don't and the press makes a big deal out of this show because the press is on the left of Pelosi not on the Left policy-wise simply on the left wisdom wise because Pelosi is a wise old coot and she knows exactly how this stuff works and she's trying to keep control over a very very active caucus where in which all the energy is on the left and if you don't think I mean even before Muller's statement if you do not think the impeachment energy is irrational and constant on the left take a look at what Al Green had to say about it with you not that out green the guy from Texas we need to have this discussion about race the race question I think that we need to go beyond talking we have to make it an action item we have a president who has infused bigotry into policy it hurts my heart when I see that picture of that baby crying being separated from her parents I think that this would not happen but for the fact that these are people of color I also believe that the president having said that there was some very fine people among the biggest erases the homophobes a xenophobes Islamophobes in Charlottesville where a woman lost her life fighting bigotry I think all of these things when combined would cause us to conclude that these are impeachable offenses unfortunately however he is a beneficial bigot meaning he benefits a good many people and I unfortunately have to tell you that I'm so sad when I see people who have built their reputations fighting bigotry allowing this to persist to the extent that it has I'm not going to be a party to this I do believe he can't be impeached for his bigotry and he should be that I mean that's lunacy that's actual lunacy so that's what it below she is hearing he's first of all he goes through that you know saying that Charlottesville people will find people which has now been utterly debunked so that's not true he says that Trump is Trump's hardline on immigration is about race which is unprovable I mean how would you how would you know if that's what is in his heart but it could just be about the rule of law that's what I think it's about he says the Trump is a bigot but he's a beneficial bigot in fact a lot of people black people people of color are being benefited by his policies so he's so he's a bigot but he keeps helping I mean this is a guy who succeeds at everything Donald Trump the one thing he's failed at is being a racist I mean it doesn't make any sense but he wants to impeach him because he doesn't like him and he breaks his heart Don Lemon who's saying this the other day it's wrong to vote for a good economy when the guy is a bad guy you know it's it's absurd and that is what Pelosi is dealing with and that is the fire that the the inflammatory material that Muller was torturing yesterday Trump is blessed in his enemies above all the left has truly truly lost its way and the funny thing is is you know I have friends who are on the Left I friends were liberals and my problem with the left is never about what they're complaining about it is always about their solution you know they talk about racism there's racism I'm against racism I think racism is a human evil I understand that I want women to have more choices in life I want them to be able to you know do this whatever it is they want to do but every single time what the left does every single time is they identify an oppressor and then they adopt the oppressors values right they say you know oh you know there's racism and that's a bad thing so we're gonna be racist except we're gonna support the other races who were oppressed instead of saying the racism stops now we can't fix the past it ends now that was the old way that was the old liberalism hey B pluribus unum were all one that's it racism is over bad it was bad stuff we're sorry on we go you know that that's the only thing that works I understand that it's unfair I understand that it leaves the past unfixed because the past is unfixable that's why the past is tragic you know but to adopt the actual idea is thinking well you know there was racism here on the right so now if we can have a little racism here on the left it's all gonna balance out all the racism always goes in one side of the scale because the devil don't care who does the hating as long as they eating gets done feminism is the same way and as always let me point out it is not that I want fewer choices for women I want women as men to do whatever they want to do it's that what I object to about feminists is they have adopted male they they've identify males as the oppressors which I don't believe I don't agree with that but they had done identify males as the oppressors and then they adopt male values saying to women if you don't live up to male values you are not strong you are now you don't have to you always see that women in movies now they're always standing like men with their hands on their hips looking sir I think like you men are stronger than women you know if you're gonna do that you're just gonna be a second-rate man and so that you do not have women saying no we want our values to have the kind of respect that men's values have traditionally have which would be a very valid point to make which brings me to Taylor Swift you know I don't like pop music I'm not a big fan of pop music but I do listen to it and of the people I like I I really like the early Taylor Swift I thought she had a really nice take on kind of high school romance I teardrops on my guitar nice songs a couple songs then she went into that that pop stuff which was a calculated move not as interested in her many many many affairs and getting dumped by people but still she does produce these songs like getting back together and shake it off they're just they guess their ear worms you know they get stuck in your head she's obviously got some kind of talent and all this stuff so she was asked by a German interviewer hey if she'd like to be a mother someday she's about to turn 30 and she refused to answer and she said it's sexist she said I really said I really do not think men are asked that question when they turned 30 so I'm not going to answer that now now everything is wrong with that statement right men aren't asked that question because they don't become mothers children don't need mothers I don't need fathers in the same way in the same intense way in their early years that they need mothers present in the house with them they do not need the father like that the way they need mothers you can tell by the way bodies are built and what they are meant to do I know this is hard to understand but women aren't shaped like that just so you can stare at them they actually do have a function which has to do with the care and nurturing of children right and then she went on to say later that her next she posted on Instagram that her next album was going to be political and I thought to myself oh boy I can't wait because everybody cares so much what Taylor Swift has to say about politics I don't care at all what pop but Taylor Swift has to say about politics but this is basically her feeling that she's not important unless she is engaged in the traditional email in the old days the traditional email world of politics and if she is takes herself away from the traditionally female world of motherhood I'm sorry but that is just ass backwards I mean Millennials are now have now stopped virtually stopped reproducing and it's amazing all the people even on the right everybody's saying well it's the economy you know Millennials were coming up in the Obama economy and they couldn't afford children so they waited too long and now they're not even producing enough people to you know feed into Social Security and to develop a working class and it's all about the economy well baloney I mean baloney is about the economy when you tell women that you're nothing if you stay home and take care of your children that you're you know only something if you lean in if you're working all the time if you adopt male values why should they I mean women I think are more subject to to social pressure than men are somewhat and I think when you tell them that it takes them a long time before they found out hoops I made a mistake even the idea even the idea that you should have a career first and then a child is a male idea because men are built for that women their time runs out why not develop another idea of a career where you have your babies first and stay home and take care of them as they need and then go on to have a career later I mean that makes a lot more sense so in other words what I'm saying is instead of arguing for that we should that we women should now be able to have live by male principles why not argue for that female principle should be elevated in our society which I think they should there's a clip going around on Twitter that I saw that it's incredibly touching we haven't got time to play the whole thing it's like eight minutes long but you can find that it's on America Got Talent and a young man shows up with his mom and the kid's name is Cody Lee and he has got he's blind he was born with optic nerve hypoplasia and they gave him a life-saving surgery when he was five days old and he now has also this kind of autism that makes it very hard for him to communicate and his mom found out that he loved music and trained him up and so he shows up on America's Got Talent clearly afflicted clearly with troubles but with this enormous talent that his mom has cultivated his mama's named Tina so here this is we put it together briefly there's a longer but just to take a look at it for a minute I'm go D I am 22 years old Cody is blind and autistic we found out that he loved music really early on he listened and his eyes just went huge and he started singing and that's when I just I was in tears because that's when I realized oh my gosh she's an entertainer so I've been so many places in my life and joy [Applause] assaults in a mate's embed resemble onstage 10,000 people watch again well.all now never say no to you [Applause] so what you're watching there folks is the opposite of an abortion that's the opposite of an abortion right and if you watch I you can't obviously if you're listening you can't see it you've watched my mom's face look the kid gets the applause the kid gets the applause that's the way of the world but there ought to be a nobel prize for motherhood in fact as far as i'm concerned that's the only thing there ought to be a nobel prize for i I get it you do not get the rewards of the world you don't get money for being a mom you don't get the applause the kid gets the applause the thing that you produce gets the applause but if that's not the most important job in on earth I don't know what is and I just think it is sick what feminists have done and this is why when I say Trump is blessed in his enemies he's blessed because they have lost their way because they adopt the values of the people they identify as the oppressors there is living proof I know it's just a pop TV show but it's important and if you could see her face you would understand that that is living proof but that's that's the job that's the thing that people do that matters and instead of saying you know what what feminists should have said was screw male values let's elevate female values but they always do the wrong thing and that is why every time they take an aim shot it at Trump it flashes back and hits them in the head we're gonna stay on so you can hear our guest but please go to daily wire.com and subscribe it supports us we want your money it's only a lousy 10 bucks a month a hundred bucks for

University of Pennsylvania's global Policy Institute and he's a fellow at the German marshal he's a fellow at the German Marshall Fund and a former chief speechwriter at the Pentagon he's got a new book called the white house warriors how the National Security Council transformed the American Way of wars out White House warriors by John Ganz Johnny there yeah absolutely how are you I'm great thank you so much for coming on I really appreciate it I want to start I want to start with something very basic because a lot of times the guys who know a lot don't understand how little people know explain to us what the National Security Council is and how it came to be so it's a good question and it's a question I get a lot so it sort of tells you how our government is sort of one of the most important parts of it is so hard to understand but the National Security Council was created in 1947 actually it was created because Franklin Roosevelt didn't need a National Security Council to win World War two you know he kind of did things on his own worked with advisors and close friends and a few military officials he liked dealt with Winston Churchill and basically tried to win the war by himself and kept everybody else in the dark but government didn't like that and as government group as the war sort of went on and to a degree as the atomic weapons were used government bases said we got to figure out a way to do this better than just an old man working in the Oval Office making decisions of huge consequence by himself and so they came up with an idea that said let's get everybody who's working on national security they didn't define national security but you know they figured State Department Defense Department the military the president the vice president a few others in a room to talk about these decisions and make it a formal sort of requirement that that's how we make decisions and so it was basically a forum and not an opportunity to get all these smart people in a room but Congress said okay well if you're gonna have that many big names in a room big people in a room you're gonna need something to make sure they show up on time you're gonna need something to make sure that they know what they're talking about when they come to the table you're gonna need somebody to make sure we know what they said when they decide when they made decisions so they created a staff a very small staff in 1947 basically to do secretarial work keep minutes to write agendas and the scheduled meetings but out of that little humble administrative beginning grew an institution in Washington that's known as the National Security Council which is actually the staff which is now 400 something people and works in the executive office building next to the White House and is run by the National Security Adviser a position that didn't exist in 1947 so does this you seem to feel that this has gotten out of hand I mean that this is a dangerous thing to have these guys making the decisions with behind the scenes well what I'd say is is that I would say that as I tell people and I always get this in Washington and I'm in Washington right now and I was getting in Washington every since well when I was on the national security staff we were really thoughtful and I sort of say well look at some total of decisions and I actually look at staffers in the book White House warriors from Truman to Trump right I look at somebody in almost every administration and in every war that America's fought since then would you actually see is the track record is it's not it's not a it's not a sterling record of decision making and war in part because you know empowering a bunch of people who are behind the scenes aren't exposed to Congress are exposed to the public aren't on the battlefield in the diplomatic negotiations to help have so much power of their decisions doesn't lead to the best decisions at the end of the day and so what I say is is that that much unaccountable problem is a problem that much unaccountable power is a problem on its own but the actual impact is really in terms of how Washington works and how America fights his Wars has been a really a negative one for the country Wow so I mean now you're looking we've had Iran in the news of North Korea you've got john bolton in there a guy i respect but he's a guy when his toilet gets clogged up he summons a b-2 bomber and instead of instead of a plumber i mean he's a very harsh guy but on the other hand you have a president who goes out in front of people and says yeah i'm not listening to them he said it about north korea they say it's their missile launches are a provocation i say it's nothing and he they were making more like noises about iran and Trump was saying no I don't want to go to war well first let's start with this do you feel the Trump and his National Security Council are at odds i they certainly aren't working well together it's hard to really see and this has been hard listen why as I was trying to explain to people Donald Trump was a very unconventional pick I mean everybody sort of accepts that is true but just putting Donald Trump into a presidency was what basically was a collision between such an unconventional person who never served in government never you know worked in the military never served the military in the same in the classic sense of understanding you know had no experience in Washington into a system that has existed for seventy years of making decisions and thinking about things and thinking about the world that and a bureaucracy that has strong opinions and isn't easy to deal with even with presidents who you know worked in Washington for years right and it's been a collision between those two forces and it hasn't been easy and there have been moments of peace but most of it has been pretty chaotic so I would say less more of just a breakdown in chaos than really at odds because I think generally speaking the president only cares about a few issues he cares about the big stuff and kind of lot seems to let and from what I talk to people in government seems to let a lot of the little stuff go to other people what you have right now is more chaos less really sort of critical analysis of what the issues are and where the priorities should be and you also have a situation where there's really no precedent where for a president is publicly saying that the national security visor not only doesn't speak for me but it's on the wrong page with me that there that might have happened in history I like they say they're working in government national screws it's not that different than every other job right their job their days where you hate your boss their days where you like your boss their days we hate your coworkers there's days where you are looking at other jobs I'm sure there's people at the White House right now are looking at you know other jobs online right that's just the way it goes but those are great days so there's always days of people getting on the wrong foot but I can't think of a precedent where the president was actively saying that the National Security Advisor speaking is not speaking for me so looking at these two situations North Korea and Iran let's start with Iran are you concerned that the disconnect between Trump and Pompeyo the parent disconnect between Trump on pale and Bolton is going to drag us into some kind of engagement or do you think the opposite is more likely well I think when a president says he's not very interested in a war I think that generally makes it harder to fight a war I think the American people are pretty hesitant about a war another one I mean there's one thing the United States knows about it for the past twenty years and one thing you know America is pretty divided but I think most Americans would agree that another Middle East war is probably not in our strategic economic and political interest right and I think that generally speaking the military is pretty pretty cool on another war in the Middle East that said the challenge you have right now is is that you have this breakdown in Washington and it's those people who are interpreting all of the signals from the Middle East right and so we've said there's no say those people you mean all the whole a Bolton Pompeo Trump right we're sending a lot of there's a lot of reaction counter-reaction with her brawn we send you know an aircraft carrier they load missiles onto a boat we you know we remove troops from a personnel from Iraq they do something else so all of these little actions and counter actions have to be interpreted and we have to make decisions and when you have people who aren't on the same page have people who are disagreeing openly in public and in the press you worry that less that the breakdown is going to drag us into war and just something's gonna get misinterpreted and miscalculation is gonna be made at questions not going to be asked and an idea is not gonna be proposed and I think that's what you have in Washington right now and as I make sure everybody knows and as this book demonstrates even when these breakdowns happen with the big people and the national security eyes Undersecretary of state of President there's been times where everybody's disagreed in the past right that's happened I talked about in the book the Reagan administration had you know as iconic as his policymaking is on the Cold War his administration was very chaotic as well well the business of national security doesn't go away so somewhere there's somebody trying to fill the gap and trying to make a decision without upsetting people and that generally leads to problems let me ask you I need a quick answer because I'm running out of time talking to John Ganz the author of white house warriors how the National Security Council transformed the American Way of war let me ask you quickly is there a reform you'd like to see a specific reform in the National Security Council yeah generally right now the national security eyes are none of the National Security Council staff are subject to Senate or congressional confirmation and I'd like to see them basically be reviewed and approved by Congress just try and open it up and connect it better to the American people because right now it's too secretive for as powerful it is at a time when people are worried about a deep state and everything else thanks very much John Gans author of White House worries thanks for coming on I hope to talk to you again absolutely thanks so much let me end the week it's a week is already over I guess it's a short week let me end with a final reflection I've got a shit show you a great catch from our friends at MRC news Buster's Alex Trebek you know of Jeopardy Fame is suffering with pancreatic cancer battling a very tough cancer to beat obviously and Trebek's one of those guys like Pat Sajak who has just become part of the American consciousness and a complete we benign in a beneficent way it's just kind of a nice character to have around so a lot of people rooting for him and praying for him as he fights this thing so listen carefully this is from as I say it's from mr.c news busters the way this was reported on ABC and then the other two news networks and ABC obviously is the jeopardy network so Trebek is there guy listen carefully to the ABC report tonight Alex Trebek three months after revealing his battle with Stage four pancreatic cancer now saying doctors believe he is in near remission we remember he vowed to fight it with the help of your prayers also I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease Trebek now telling people magazine the doctor said they hadn't seen this kind of positive result in their memory some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50% he adds it's kind of mind-boggling I've already gone from where I was to this the doctors are so excited just beside themselves with joy and Trebek again thank the millions who have sent good wishes I told the doctors this has to be more than just chemo I've had a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts their positive energy and their prayers the doctor said it could very well be an important part of this out it is and we're always rooting for Alex here good job ABC very straightforward report listen carefully to see what's missing from the reports from CBS and NBC Trebek announced his diagnosis in March I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease the five-year survival rate for stage 4 pancreatic cancer is less than 3% the 78 year old has continued to work while undergoing chemo thank you for your continuing messages of encouragement and support he tells people I've got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts I told the doctors this has to be more than just the chemo for Trebek that support is part of the answer there was some encouraging news today from Alex Trebek the host of Jeopardy says his doctors tell him that his Stage four pancreatic cancer is in quote near mission in an interview with People magazine Trebek calls the prognosis mind-boggling but says he has several more rounds of chemotherapy to go before he's declared to be in full remission yep they edited out the prayers it just completely took out the prayers was obviously meant a lot to Trebek and bet that he felt it helped him very much you know yesterday during the mail bag I said that God is not like Tinkerbell he doesn't go away when you stop believing in him but you do you go away when you stop believing in God you lose the entire the entire logic behind your rights behind your soul behind your conscience all of the logic of that goes away when you stop believing and that is why I mean they don't know they're doing it obviously there's nobody at CB s rubbing his hands together NBC saying oh we're gonna get rid of God it's an instinct they have because they know that God is opposed to what they want which is power to make decisions over you which is to take away your conscience take away your agency God is an enemy of the left because he gets in the way of their plans but as I say when you stop believing in him he doesn't go to go away you do and that is their ultimate goal to get rid of you the you of you who demands rights who is endowed with rights lands the right to make decisions according to your own conscience anyway let us join our prayers to those of millions of others for Alex Trebek I hope he beats this thing it wouldn't d be a miracle for the rest of you you're screwed is the Clavin this weekend however however if somehow if somehow you
