00:07
okay I want to tell you guys a story
00:09
about a band called Nirvana you probably
00:11

00:13
they were a good bad man a really good
00:15
band they had this awesome start out and
00:17
watch them a lot of fans will have this
00:18
great Tourette’s
00:25
anyway Courtney killed Kabang I don’t
00:43
know why we blame on her it seems easy
00:45
to say back that up
00:50
I might be going out on a limb here but
00:51
I think society doesn’t seem to like
00:54
women are the best of times but we
00:55
really get mad when they fuck our rock
00:57
stars you know
00:57
charka beam belong stops we cried so
01:00
naturally when dad
01:06
Courtney Junction beta Courtney Courtney
01:10
Courtney trusted babe
01:15
[Music]
01:17
she raised that chair
01:20
[Music]
01:23
yeah yeah yeah yeah she’s got problems
01:26
don’t we all have problems that would be
01:29
exacerbated by living life in the public
01:31
eye need I remind you miss perky when
01:33
she lost her husband but she was fairly
01:35
29 and we repair higher the hassling
01:38
hardware fucking cemre at times a day
01:40
her phone goes ping ping 9% of the time
01:45
is saying the same thing as saying good
01:47
evening Courtney Love it is I MK ULTRA
01:49
truther 99 and you will Auto be nervous
01:51
to learn I’ve been carrying out an
01:53
independent investigation into the
01:55
mysterious circumstances surrounding
01:56
your husband’s suicide truck beans
02:02
suicide notes for paragraphs of a man
02:04
preparing to leave you and retire from
02:06
the music industry followed by four
02:07
lines at the end of different pen and
02:08
different handwriting in which he talks
02:10
about suicide pretty weird that Courtney
02:13
pretty weird not incriminating on its
02:16
own however following your husband’s
02:17
death and your possession which burned a
02:19
piece of paper in which you’ve been
02:20
practicing
02:21
why don’t you be practicing giving
02:23
blacks in the last fucking four lines
02:25
side note how do you explain
02:33
you did it you did it just admit it you
02:36
show curcumin you Jetta
02:39
Justin Justin you killed Kirk up a
02:43
turtle bay
02:46
oh babe turkey bacon
02:53
pretty convincing isn’t it I know I find
02:57
it convincing more often than I don’t
03:00
but then I am particularly vulnerable to
03:03
these kinds of stories you know there is
03:09
a question that I asked myself but once
03:12
every 18 months once every two years or
03:15
so and this is a question the smart
03:16
people ask themselves every day multiple
03:19
times a day I would go so far as to say
03:21
it is the question that keeps a smart
03:23
person smart forwards what if I’m wrong
03:32
what if I’m wrong what if what if
03:36
reality is exactly as it seems
03:42
what if 9/11 was not an inside job
03:46
carried out by the American
03:46
military-industrial complex against its
03:49
own people to justify a series of power
03:51
grabs in the Middle East what if it was
03:53
just a reaction to decades of
03:56
carelessness and aggression centuries of
04:00
imperialism
04:03
well if JFK was not assassinated by his
04:06
own government he was murdered by one
04:09
man one confused and lonely man who
04:12
preferred the reality inside his head to
04:14
the reality outside of it I can relate
04:16
to that who wanted to be a hero I can
04:18
relate to that as well who probably died
04:20
not understanding why he wasn’t a hero
04:23
my everyone was so mad at him you know
04:29
Kurt Cobain had a genetic predisposition
04:34
to in no particular order
04:36
substance abuse paranoia depression
04:40
anxiety not to mention he was a member
04:46
of the music industry
04:48
these qualities put a person at
04:52
particularly high risk of suicide
04:57
they’re simple tidy and most boring of
05:04
all it just makes sense we are
05:10
vulnerable to these kinds of stories
05:14
partly because they make our world seem
05:17
less chaotic but also because if you
05:20
stack enough of these stories one on top
05:21
of each other you block out the bigger
05:23
story the story which is as terrifying
05:25
as it is verifiably true and that is
05:28
that we are marooned out here stranded
05:31
on a rock in the middle of nowhere and
05:34
bad things are gonna keep on happening
05:36
to good people until one day one day the
05:39
worst thing is gonna happen to all the
05:41
best people at once an asteroid will hit
05:45
or we’ll start a nuclear war or we won’t
05:49
put enough money into developing new
05:51
antibiotics or super virus will wipe us
05:53
all out and if we manage to avoid all of
05:56
those things one day the ice caps will
05:58
melt if we managed to survive that one
06:00
day the sun’s gonna explode and there is
06:02
no hope of rescue or escape because who
06:05
is there a rescue us where is there to
06:07
escape through we are not ah how to deal
06:12
with these things and so we are left to
06:14
our own devices to come up with ways of
06:17
distracting ourselves sex and drugs and
06:25
rock and roll and that’s just what works
06:28
for most of us for some of us that is
06:30
not enough and those are the people who
06:31
fly passenger jets into skyscrapers
06:34
those are the people who kill presidents
06:36
those are the people who load up on guns
06:37
and splatter their brains are all over
06:39
the family home are people like me
06:42
arseholes
06:44
the intrepid keyboard detectives willing
06:46
to say the things no one else is willing
06:47
to say because they can see the face no
06:49
one else is willing to see we’ll explain
06:51

the album that it’s on you only have
09:51

Mueller report baby yeah spanning
13:01
basically the entire from the beginning
13:03
to what we’ve kept going but right it
13:05
was like what a couple days before or
13:07
after the Mueller investigation started
13:09
yeah yeah we started a December of 2016
13:12
and we you know we’re still going and
13:17
the Mueller report kind of started right
13:20
around that that was when the the the
13:24
McCain dossier what not the McCain da
13:28
steel Duffy steeled us yet but that
13:31
McCain like turned over about Trump
13:34
getting prostitutes to pee on them or
13:36
whatever that’s when that all started
13:39
getting kicked off and so we have been a
13:42
show for the Mueller report and the
13:46
other muddied waters of freedom is
13:48
having a prostitute pee on you really
13:58
I’m sure I’d the segue right that’s the
14:02
segue yeah yeah I mean sure I don’t know
14:09
what you were segged my arm oh no that
14:13
was my that was the entirety of my segue
14:15
oh okay oh I am so yeah we’ve been on
14:18

14:21
episodes of this show we’ve got 35
14:24
episodes of your show yep we’ve got
14:27
thirty this will be week 36 for me on
14:31
the writer’s block Jason I think has 16
14:35
I don’t know yeah he’s gonna surpass us
14:38
cuz he’s doubling up at ready as he’s
14:40
doing he’s doing two a week we’ll be
14:43
like yeah it’s our 200th episode and our
14:45
7030 fifth episode of mr. america the
14:50
bearded truth is that’s how math work
14:51
right and I mean I have a feeling
14:54
because he they they are expecting he’s
14:58
not expecting his wife is expecting he
15:00
can’t have a child what he’s expected to
15:03
weigh right he’s expecting his wife to
15:05
have a child so I’m I’m guessing that
15:09
when that happens he may have to slow
15:12
down a little bit
15:13
I mean so like miss one a month kind of
15:18
a thing not a lot Jason possibly or it
15:22
could go the other way where he’s like
15:24
all these kids are in the house that he
15:26
just locked himself in a room and does
15:28
episodes every day man we are we are
15:31

16:23
opinion so guys after listening to
16:27
Kourtney by sonars be sure to check out
16:31
the Korean it’s a good read that’s what
16:35
I hear every good book yeah one of the
16:39
best help it is it’s up there speaking
16:46
in Korean speaking of religion and bad
16:52
things that happen when people subscribe
16:55
to it also okay
16:59
in pond way California just outside of
17:03
San Diego for anybody who doesn’t know
17:05
where pond way California is there was
17:07
this act that odd way pond way
17:11
okay well I mean I don’t know OPO way
17:18
that way not pond way sorry I don’t know
17:20
how I read that wrong poet this somebody
17:25
did a thing some people did a thing yet
17:32
yes there was there was a shoe some do
17:36
some Pathak were worshippers yes
17:39
so some people did some things to a some
17:42
person did some things to a pet to some
17:44
Passover worshippers a guy went into a
17:47
synagogue he was trying to copy the New
17:51
Zealand attacker on the on the mosque
17:56
that was out there and the Pittsburgh
17:58
attacker that attacked the sinigang
18:01
synagogue and Pittsburgh six months ago
18:04
yeah yeah last year yeah claim he
18:08
claimed that they were his inspirations
18:11
he went he went into this to the
18:14
synagogue during Passover and started
18:17
firing off and one person died and three
18:19
more were injured he tried to livestream
18:26
he was unable to get the live stream to
18:29
work it was reported that during during
18:34
the attack he did the subscribe to
18:37
PewDiePie same chant that the New
18:42
Zealander
18:42
did this has called for PewDiePie now
18:47
he’s calling for a moratorium of the
18:49
subscribed a PewDiePie meme because he
18:53
doesn’t want it to be associated with
18:54
hate and that’s where people have taken
18:56
it like what is like these are abstence
19:00
ibly fans of PewDiePie why would you
19:03
destroy PewDiePie like obviously is not
19:06
gonna want to be associated with your
19:08
mass shooting like what why I don’t I
19:13
I don’t get it but I also don’t get why
19:15
you would want to shoot up a house of
19:17
worship either so what do I do right I
19:20
did not read his manifesto this time
19:23
yeah I didn’t read it either right
19:26
normally normally I do this summon did
19:28
not I heard that he was a copycat I
19:32
thought it’s gonna just be the same
19:34
thing that you know yeah he did he I
19:37
don’t believe he was like the
19:39
eco-terrorists that the that the New
19:43
Zealanders New Zealand shooter was i
19:45
right
19:46
he claimed to hate Trump but he also
19:49
claimed to not be a liberal like so I
19:51
didn’t that I have no idea he this is
19:55
just one of those situations in which a
19:57
whacked out guy yeah yeah a whacked out
20:00
guy he he did something and it’s awful
20:08
yeah yeah it’s awful and you know he
20:14
will be in prison probably for a very
20:15
very very long time in California yeah
20:18
and only because it’s California he’s
20:20
not gonna get executed but he he will
20:23
he’s not coming out Oh California has
20:25
the death penalty oh I thought they had
20:27
a moratorium I thought oh yeah I think
20:31
the previous governor did a moratorium I
20:35
put it this way if there’s a death
20:36
penalty in California he’s probably a
20:39
candidate for it otherwise he’s probably
20:40
just gonna spend the rest of his life in
20:41
prison um it’s a it’s a so this is
20:44
something that’s very common in you know
20:48
fringe ideologies it attracts it
20:51
attracts me not not his particular
20:55
ideology but you know I mean it attracts
20:57
people that are just very consistent in
20:58
their ideology it also attracts crazies
21:01
who just want to be associated with
21:02
fringe thing and so you see this in like
21:05
everything from you know all right
21:08
circles anarchists circles socialist
21:12
circles vegan circles like you see in
21:15
any kind of like very extreme you know
21:18
final conclusion type of ideologies you
21:21
see these kind of great you’ll see some
21:23
crazies attached to it just because
21:27
they’re attached to things that are
21:28
outside of the mainstream and I think
21:30
that you see this with your seeing this
21:33
over and over again would like these
21:35
like 4chan alright white nationalist
21:38
types where first of all the ideology
21:40
itself has major problems but second of
21:42
all it’s also attracting people who are
21:44
looking for a reason you know to kill a
21:48
bunch of people and this one’s as good
21:50
as any other if hadn’t been this it
21:51
would have been like I said veganism
21:53
there was at that lady that shot up the
21:56
YouTube headquarters um
21:58
and she was you know a vegan activist
22:00
and and and you know I mean so I mean it
22:02
these things attract all kinds you see
22:05
it less with the vegans because they’re
22:07
b12 levels are very low and so they’re
22:10
they just don’t have the energy right
22:12
the the energy to pull off a mass
22:14
shooting is just not as prevalent they
22:17
just get really angsty um also their
22:21
magnesium is typically low so they’re
22:22
cramping a lot right there did you ever
22:26
watch that show community with Joel
22:31
whatever his name is old Mikhail yeah I
22:33
I’ve caught like an episode I know Chevy
22:36
Chase was in it but I’ve never really
22:37
like watched it watched it there’s an
22:39
episode in the season that nobody really
22:42
talks about but it’s got this one really
22:44
funny part because they like through in
22:45
like this weird all of their lives
22:48
interconnected backstory kind of thing
22:50
but beretta the the one of the female
22:56
leads the blonde one the kind of hippie
22:58
ditzy you know I’m gonna I’m a socialist
23:02
that fights for freedom and talks about
23:04
civil rights which those two don’t ever
23:07
match up she was celebrating and in the
23:11
past she was celebrating Jeff’s win over
23:14
he represented a stripper who got off of
23:19
a prostitution charge or something I
23:21
can’t remember what but she was
23:23
congratulating him on it and she turned
23:26
around to her feminist group of people
23:28
and she’s like this is our first big win
23:30
we’re gonna you know we can build off of
23:32
this and they said actually we kind of
23:35
thought that this would be like our swan
23:37
song like we were gonna go out with a
23:39
big win and then
23:40
would be it she goes no we need to keep
23:42
this mother rolling she’s I dry it and
23:44
one of the other girls said I don’t
23:47
really feel the cause anymore I mean I
23:49
had a hamburger last week and I’m not
23:51
cold all the time anymore and I laughed
23:54
for about ten minutes at that line and I
23:58
continued to today any time I think of
24:02
vegans and then- veganism take a big
24:05
yeah you look chilly let me get you a
24:08
jacket and a hamburger yeah okay let me
24:12
get you some heme from the red meat
24:14
right so you get some some nutrients in
24:17
your system so yeah so I it’s it’s a
24:20
terrible thing what happened with the
24:21
shooting and I actually just and this is
24:25
somewhat unrelated there was another
24:26
shooting we don’t I don’t think we know
24:28
the the motive yet I think they do have
24:34
the shooter but it was at UNCC UNC in
24:38
Charlotte which is like I’m in Charlotte
24:41
right now and so it’s like I don’t know
24:43
ten miles away from where I am or five
24:45
miles away we don’t know what the what
24:48
the thing is but um people were saying
24:50
you know they’re worried that it was yet
24:51
another copycat you know that this is
24:54
not gonna be a thing where every angsty
24:56
you know every angsty person on a on
24:59
reddit and and 4chan is gonna go you
25:02
don’t pop off at the you know their
25:04
school or you know at a church or
25:06
whatever so three sad there was also one
25:09
in Massachusetts today oh good at a mall
25:16
so not not the happiest day in the news
25:20
yeah no not the happiest day in the news
25:23
even with Venezuela even with Venezuela
25:28
in the midst of a coup just not a lot of
25:31
stuff waged Venezuela’s in the midst of
25:35
a cold yeah speaking of which
25:37
Venezuela’s in the midst of a coup and
25:40
the u.s. definitely did not back it wait
25:44
no they did they support it but they’re
25:45
not you know funding it probably yeah
25:50
they’re not publicly it’s one of those
25:52
things where ten years from now there
25:54
be like well you know what they were
25:55
really doing and we’re all gonna go all
25:57
my gosh mm-hmm
25:59
the US government was doing something
26:01
shady and not telling us about it to
26:03
undermine a foreign country no way this
26:07
is a lie that’s alive from fake news is
26:09
probably Julian Assange’s probably
26:11
WikiLeaks that will tell us about it but
26:14
yeah so here’s our thing with venezuela
26:18
and i have we’re probably going to get
26:20
some some comments from people that are
26:22
in favor of us you know working to
26:26
remove Maduro and the Chevys does here’s
26:30
the problem first of all the US doesn’t
26:33
have a good track record of replacing
26:36
bad governments with better governments
26:39
um they almost always fail one I guess
26:44
bright spot if you could call it that
26:46
would have been in post-world War two
26:48
but the difference there was that first
26:51
those countries were completely
26:52
obliterated and then rebuilt from
26:55
scratch in spending the equivalent of
26:58
what would be tens of trillions of
27:00
dollars now to remake entire parts of
27:03
the planet that’s different from a few
27:06
tactical strikes taking out a militant
27:07
you know a leader and then you know
27:09
replacing them with someone else it just
27:11
doesn’t work right and Afghanistan Iraq
27:17
Vietnam will be a Nam failed yeah like a
27:20
Korea film
27:22
yeah Korea failed Mamere Rouge was very
27:29
much a reaction to u.s. bombings and
27:33
actions in Southeast Asia during the
27:35
Vietnam conflict like this the u.s. does
27:38
not have a good and I have fitness wheel
27:41
and Facebook friends and associates who
27:43
are like please we need help and it’s
27:44
like yeah you guys could end up being
27:46
like Syria because that’s another
27:49
attempt that did not end well
27:51
right and like I’ve you know I’m sitting
27:55
here I eat whatever I want so I’m not
27:57
gonna try to pretend that I get what
27:58
it’s like to be in medicine right now
28:00
where the average Venezuelan has lost 17
28:02
pounds or something like that in the
28:03
last 10 years and they weren’t fat like
28:05
it like we could lose the average
28:07
American could use
28:08
using 17 pounds they were already slim
28:10
and fit to begin with they’re not doing
28:12
well but they’re still better off than
28:15
Syria and I I think sometimes in the
28:19
midst of that they’re not getting how
28:20
much worse the US military could make it
28:22
the other thing is that the person we’d
28:25
be replacing Maduro with probably is not
28:31
a nicer guy but he’s equally socialist
28:33
right so he’s bring in the same economic
28:37
system yes so but he’s gonna be nice
28:44
about it like I mean so essentially the
28:49
way that I read that is we’re gonna give
28:52
you I’ll give you I’ll and you lift any
28:56
sanctions you have pretty much which
28:59
will which and the sanctions lifting the
29:01
sanctions will help right their economy
29:04
but it’s not the sanctions that cause
29:06
this
29:07
there weren’t sanctions in place when
29:10
Venezuela hyperinflation was starting it
29:12
made it worse it certainly hasn’t helped
29:15
things but Venezuela is falling apart
29:18
because they are increasingly centrally
29:21
planning the economy and all the
29:22
terrible things happen as a result of
29:24
that you know the if you look at the
29:26
holy donor in the Ukraine during the
29:30
Soviet Union the Great Leap Forward the
29:33
Khmer Rouge all of these things what
29:36
happened in Zimbabwe all of these are
29:38
the results of central planning you have
29:40
people who don’t understand how each
29:43
given sector of the economy works just
29:45
trying to wing it and using the force of
29:47
law to control it and everything falls
29:49
apart as a result and that’s what
29:50
happened in Venezuela so now you’re
29:51
gonna get a new guy that comes in who
29:53
yes it’s gonna be maybe a little bit
29:55
better and he might be nicer about it
29:57
but it’s still gonna get worse it just
29:59
won’t get worse as fast and do we want
30:02
on this side do we want our friends and
30:05
neighbors to go over there and risk
30:07
fighting a hot war with Russian military
30:11
not to mention Venezuelans to maybe
30:16
possibly make things worse better but
30:18
also maybe possibly make things way
30:20
worse right and I
30:22
no no even if I wasn’t an inter kissed
30:24
I’d say no to that
30:25
right and we have the Americans
30:30
obviously supporting guy Ito guy you
30:34
know guy you know gay yeah
30:37
guy you know we’re obviously supporting
30:40
guy ADA on the side of Maduro
30:44
is China Russia in Cuba so you’re
30:52
already starting to pick teams at this
30:53
point for World War three you know and
30:55
Venezuela’s should not be the
30:57
jumping-off point no I did there
31:02
shouldn’t be a jumping-off point like
31:04
here is my thing and we we get a lot of
31:07
people especially conservatives who are
31:08
like if libertarians got their way with
31:10
foreign policy it would be Russia and
31:13
China who would be doing all this you
31:15
know nation-building crap to which I say
31:18
okay how has that helped us right like
31:24
it has it has led to massive deficit
31:28
spending it has led to massive
31:30
polarization of politics in the u.s.
31:33
it’s led to you know thousands of dead
31:35
Americans a thousands of affected you
31:39
know surviving families of those deaths
31:41
uncounted what tens or hundreds of
31:44
thousands of wounded people millions of
31:45
people with PTSD not to mention all the
31:48
hundreds of thousands of people killed
31:49
by the US military everyone hating us
31:53
like if you go into parts of the world
31:55
and say you’re American you have to
31:56
apologize starting off because they
31:59
associate you with you know all these
32:00
terrible things our government did that
32:01
you may not have even supported um how
32:04
was that helped us like if everyone
32:06
wants to hate China instead good then
32:10
they can like us like III I’ve never
32:13
heard a compelling reason for us to
32:15
continue to hold the poisoned chalice of
32:18
global military dominance like it how
32:21
does that help you and me it doesn’t
32:23
right it it makes no sense to me I
32:30
wouldn’t work when we were going over to
32:32
Iraq in Afghanistan and
32:35
you know these people deserve democracy
32:38
was like the mantra that so many people
32:41
out there were we’re about kind of
32:43
chanting and what if they don’t want it
32:47
well everybody wants democracy why I
32:50
don’t want to why I don’t really want
32:53
democracy that means that 52% of the
32:56
people that I just 52% of the country
32:58
52% of the people that I disagree with
33:01
are dictating me yeah it’s and a lot of
33:08
people are gonna disagree with this but
33:11
it’s gang-rape on just a huge scale
33:16
we’re gonna it’s it’s it’s like The
33:18
Hunger Games just spread out further
33:21
right like I mean and and and so there
33:25
are arguments as to whether autocracy
33:29
which is you know one or a small handful
33:32
of people controlling everything is
33:33
better than democracy and the argument
33:35
in favor of democracy obviously is that
33:37
well it’s asking the people at large
33:39
even though in the u.s. most adults
33:41
aren’t even eligible to vote but that’s
33:43
all other subject so they just qualify a
33:45
bunch of people and then make the rest
33:47
of the mapa thetic is that only a
33:48
handful and voting anyway but all that
33:50
aside the other thing democracy does is
33:53
give people the veneer of it being their
33:56
fault
33:57
well we get the government we deserve no
33:59
you don’t what the government’s imposing
34:01
itself on you and not giving you an
34:02
option to opt out but what people say
34:05
that if it were an autocracy we could
34:06
all be like well that guy’s got to go
34:08
and we’re sick of this and we deserve
34:10
freedom but when it’s democracy it’s
34:11
like well the people have spoken so in
34:15
one way it’s better because it’s sort of
34:17
outsources or crowdsources the tyranny
34:19
so it’s a little softer usually than
34:22
then you know that an autocrat would be
34:24
the flip side of that is that it also
34:27
entrenches the ability of that democracy
34:29
to do horrific things with the public
34:31
kind of just shrugging their shoulders
34:32
and go well you know Oh harder next time
34:35
guys um and I thought I’ve always hated
34:39
that sentence cuz how hard can somebody
34:41
vote just push that button I’m gonna
34:46
fill this circle in
34:48
fuller than I did last time because I
34:54
want this vote to count more I want to
34:57
feel it hard I’m gonna knock that chat
34:59
you guys still have the Chad’s right
35:00
where they got rid of that they got rid
35:02
of okay that would shit out of that Chad
35:08
South Carolina we have the voting
35:11
machines yes so we had wisdom taking the
35:14
tablet if you if you vote too hard if
35:17
you’re like and then it breaks you’ve
35:20
now destroyed public property so here
35:22
here here in Florida now at least in my
35:26
district I don’t know if this is all
35:27
districts but at least in my district
35:29
they’ve taken a page from the Department
35:33
of Education and they’ve given us
35:35
essentially standardized tests where you
35:37
have to fill in the bubble and then oh
35:40
they scantron it nice that no way that
35:44
could fail right no way so you just vote
35:49
you just go be you alternate between B
35:51
and C right over the better yeah there
35:54
you just go see right down the line
35:55
right down the line right down the line
35:58
because like 52 percent of answers are C
36:01
so at least you’re gonna get a 50 that’s
36:05
how we knew before any other news outlet
36:08
who won the Florida elections in this
36:11
last cycle was we just look at who was C
36:13
right we looked at who was C and it just
36:15
happened to be to Santos and see in the
36:18
Senate race just happened to be rick
36:19
Scott so we knew it would be it was C
36:23
right Michael Scott on on the book of
36:29
faces said persuade others in your
36:32
community
36:33
I assume he was like this because it was
36:36
a question mark but yeah
36:42
that’s like saying persuade others on
36:44
Facebook so you
36:47
I mean you can you I mean that you can
36:50
try all major social changes happen as a
36:54
result of people changing other people’s
36:55
minds usually by having a gun pointed at
36:57
them at some point or the possibility of
36:59
a gun pointed at them but but at the
37:01
very least people
37:02
changing people’s minds but you don’t
37:04
need democracy to do that democracy
37:06
doesn’t end run around that and says
37:08
well in the meantime whatever the
37:10
majority or the ortho or even the
37:12
plurality because if there’s more than
37:14
one answer to the question or more than
37:16
one candidate now it’s not even the
37:18
majority of eligible voters it’s now the
37:20
plurality of eligible voters whichever
37:24
the biggest group thinks we’re gonna go
37:26
with that and we’re gonna force everyone
37:27
else into it at gunpoint so you are more
37:29
often than not almost always a minority
37:32
of people are forcing a majority of
37:36
people because at least in the u.s. huge
37:40
numbers of people because of felony
37:41
convictions or childΒ΄s or various other
37:44
things uh are not eligible to vote and
37:49
then many more are just sort of soft
37:52
anarchists where they’re like I don’t
37:54
trust any of these people anyway into
37:56
the Rapa thetic or they’re like me who
37:58
doesn’t really want to use proxy
38:00
violence against a bunch of strangers
38:02
and so we just kind of bow out and so
38:04
you have a minority of a minority you
38:07
know a sliver of of of adults deciding
38:11
for every other person in that area
38:13
whatever that presumed jurisdiction is
38:15
so I mean no democracy’s garbage I mean
38:17
even even the the founders when they
38:20
created the system it was not a it was
38:22
there were democratic elements to it but
38:24
like the state legislatures chose the
38:27
Senate the electors chose the president
38:30
really the only direct votes you were
38:32
doing on the federal level were for your
38:34
representative and that was it and the
38:36
representatives at that time only
38:37
represented like a couple thousand
38:40
people so it was much more you know
38:42
localized or whatever but I mean no
38:44
democracy is is anything that you can do
38:47
through democracy you can do just as
38:48
easily or more easily through a
38:50
voluntary system just influencing those
38:54
around you right Mike the guest that’s
38:57
going to be on the writer’s block in two
38:59
weeks commented and said democracy is
39:02
two wolves in a lamb deciding what’s for
39:04
dinner liberty is a well-armed lamb some
39:07
degenerate dead guy from the 1700s yes
39:12
so and I like that you said Liberty
39:14
instead of a republic
39:16
because democracy is two wolves in a
39:19
lamb deciding what’s for what’s for
39:20
dinner
39:21
a representative Republic is three
39:24
wolves and to Liam’s deciding what’s for
39:26
dinner
39:27
the Liam’s contesting the result and in
39:30
a landmark for five wolves two for
39:34
Liam’s decision
39:35
chief justice a fight o fight oh that’s
39:41
fight oh the wolf I don’t know what’s a
39:45
what’s a wolf named Wolfie chief justice
39:47
Wolfie Wolfensohn Walker Stein wolf fur
39:51
Stein yeah
39:55
decides in a landmark decision that
39:59
they’re gonna eat the Lambs right that
40:01
that’s the republic verge at the
40:02
constitutional republic version of how
40:05
that would go
40:06
liberty is the lamb saying i don’t care
40:09
what you want me to kill you
40:11
tactical Nick Nick Nick knew cue right
40:14
if you try it what come on to my
40:16
property I’m don’t violate impact right
40:19
so yeah you can’t really vote harder
40:24
it’s impossible you could try but you’re
40:27
just gonna probably break the tablet or
40:30
your skin on paper right speaking of
40:34
people who voted hard the the members of
40:45
the Brooklyn delegation sure the members
40:50
of the Brooklyn delegation hang their
40:52
heads in shame once again yes as their
40:57
duly elected representative the not as
41:04
hot as she used to be
41:05
AOC the ever quotable and yet
41:09
increasingly less attractive hate
41:14
bangable although I remember honestly I
41:18
found sandy the dancing girl attractive
41:20
I have not found
41:21
Alexandra occasi of Cortes attractive
41:24
ring well she’s less attractive than she
41:26
was when she was sandy physically and
41:29
just how she acts
41:30
mm-hmm sandy say dancing sandy is much
41:34
more attractive than angry petulant aoc
41:41
yes right
41:43
definitely and so what it so what’d she
41:46
do Matt see this week every week we have
41:49
a leg room where almost as bad as like
41:52
Fox we’re like every week we have like
41:54
bash aoc right right you know we like
41:58
then if anybody wants to send us money
42:01
for a sponsorship we will name the
42:04
bashing AOC segment after you and every
42:08
week we will do the AOC segment and
42:11
we’ll be like it’ll be like this is the
42:13
Shayne Sweeney hates Alexandria Acacio
42:16
cortes portion of our show our hour of
42:22
power right I mean I’m okay with it
42:29
but she came out and she started going
42:32
about how the VA which side note for
42:36
years when I was a child I thought that
42:39
they were all talking about the state of
42:40
Virginia since that’s where I grew up
42:43
and I was like why does everybody hate
42:44
Virginia so much but no they were
42:48
talking about would have album sold
42:50
right there ago they’re talking about
42:52
the Veteran Affairs which AOC possibly
42:56
notes she said that the he cares but he
43:09
still cares he knows he knows how to do
43:13
the moonwalk so it’s totally okay guys I
43:17
don’t know why every what’s so upset why
43:19
you keep going to the Virginia parking
43:20
lot and killing yourself anyway call it
43:23
so she’s like that she is a one dollar
43:29
donation from Chris Reynolds well then
43:33
then and as the highest bidder right
43:35
this is the Chris Reynolds hates aoc
43:37
segment segment right right by Chris
43:41
Rock a lot Chris Reynolds attorney at
43:43
law
43:44
um she she’s sticking up for the VA and
43:48
she was quoted as saying there so
43:51
there’s this new bill that’s coming out
43:53
this is kind of important you can’t need
43:54
the backstory I’m not I’m not peeing by
43:56
the way I’m washing fruit sure
44:00
you can’t need the backstory there is a
44:02
bill that is coming out that is going to
44:06
privatize certain sections of the VA
44:09
night dan Caldwell who is the I believe
44:14
he’s the founder of Concerned Veterans
44:15
for America he supports this bill fully
44:20
he thinks it’s a great idea because we
44:22
need to because we need to make sure
44:26
that in his mind that we need to take
44:30
care of the veterans and he thinks that
44:31
privatizing the VA is the way to go it’s
44:34
the best way to do it if you’re getting
44:35
some people around the world to fight
44:37
and die you need to take care of them if
44:39
they make it they actually make it back
44:40
so no I I didn’t listen if there’s one
44:43
thing the government should be doing
44:44
it’s it’s taking care of people that
44:46
they signed up to to fight for them
44:49
right and yes privatizing it would
44:51
easily be the best way to do that
44:52
absolutely and just as an update this is
44:54
now the shame Sweeney he hates AOC
44:57
segment by the way I’m physically the
45:03
closest to you of the two of us so I
45:05
will be in charge of showing up at your
45:08
restaurant and making sure that you it’s
45:10
a $2 temperature to those so I’m getting
45:14
that that’s a two spot I’m getting right
45:16
so AOC has come out and she said during
45:21
a rally meeting of some sort they are
45:26
trying to fix the VA for pharmaceutical
45:29
companies they are trying to fix the VA
45:33
for insurance corporations and
45:37
ultimately they are trying to fix the VA
45:40
for a for-profit health care industry
45:43
that does not put people or veterans
45:46
first which amazingly she said this
45:48
without code-switching and we have a
45:51
responsibility to protect it
45:57
she didn’t know how to code switch into
45:58
veteran she didn’t know how to code
46:01
switch into veteran she only knows how
46:03
to code right girlfriend Chris Reynolds
46:10
just offered three dollars in a lap
46:12
dance nice right well Jane to add at
46:18
least a good solid 25 bucks for the lap
46:20
dance yeah if you haven’t seen Chris
46:22
Reynolds he’s worth at least a 20 spot I
46:26
definitely and I’m not even into that
46:28
but just he’s that he’s that solidly
46:31
built of a guy that’s true you just have
46:34
to respect it even if you don’t want it
46:36
want a lap dance you got to respect the
46:39
market value right like I mean so so now
46:43
we’re at $28 right so yeah so I mean
46:47
she’s got to defend the VA right because
46:50
not only is it single it’s actually not
46:52
just single it’s government health care
46:54
so single payer obviously and I know you
46:56
know this but I’m telling and Chris
46:58
Reynolds possibly knows this but every
47:01
for every one out single payer is where
47:04
the doctors themselves might still be
47:07
private practice they don’t work for the
47:09
government but the only person paying
47:11
for it is a government and that may seem
47:12
like a bit of a I’m missing something
47:15
what’s happening do your explanation
47:18
else I have to bring you know a
47:23
single-payer like in Canada most of the
47:26
hospitals doctors etc are still
47:28
privately owned and still privately run
47:32
they just the only person that pays them
47:33
is the their their provinces health
47:37
insurance program um and so it’s it’s
47:40
government paid health care but it’s not
47:43
government-run health care and there is
47:45
still a difference because they’re still
47:46
competing providers and things like that
47:48
so it’s not a good system but it’s it’s
47:50
better than the VA system or the
47:54
national health care system vertel in in
47:57
the UK where the government runs health
48:00
care it’s cheaper per person but it’s
48:03
because more people are gonna die
48:05
right ah it’s a worse system it is
48:08
rationed health care and so the end
48:11
for a for an actual ideological
48:13
socialist not just a liberal but at
48:15
actual socialist like like Alexander
48:18
occasion Cortez that’s the end goal when
48:22
they say Medicare for all that’s not
48:24
what they they don’t want Medicare for
48:26
all they want the VA for all they don’t
48:29
even want Medicaid for all they want the
48:31
VA for all and so they have to defend
48:33
the VA even though a you know if the if
48:37
the if the US government isn’t able to
48:40
provide a good health care for a couple
48:44
million people multiply that by over a
48:47
hundred and now that’s what you’re
48:49
you’re you’re putting in the lap of the
48:50
US federal government to do for all of
48:52
us but you have to defend it because
48:54
that’s her I mean that is her it’s her
48:57
right that’s her platform that is her
48:59
end goal is government being in charge
49:02
of everything like that um so yeah
49:05
that’s she she may not want to defend it
49:09
but she has to defend it and she and
49:11
she’s defending it because she she says
49:13
that the VA that they have in her
49:15
district is fantastic I don’t know how
49:19
accurate that is it for many people in
49:22
her district it may be the only health
49:24
care that they can get right so very
49:29
people in her district that are not
49:31
happy with the VA I do every once in a
49:33
while I will meet someone who goes yeah
49:35
you know what the VA is not terrible and
49:37
it’s usually it’s one or two groups one
49:40
is they don’t really use it that much so
49:43
when they do use it it’s you know they
49:44
go see a doctor for a check-up or
49:46
whatever and that’s fine the other group
49:48
or people that like needed a specialized
49:53
surgery and stuff like that because of
49:55
stuff that happened you know during
49:56
combat and so they have these VA
49:58
excellent centers of excellence that do
50:01
these like top level you know basically
50:03
almost like battlefield surgeries but
50:05
they’re doing them in a hospital setting
50:07
and they have these experts for the vast
50:09
majority of people who actually have
50:12
chronic constant needs and it’s not some
50:16
kind of like surge thing that they need
50:17
they hate the system and it still costs
50:20
a fortune because that’s what happens
50:23
with centrally planned
50:24
like like government healthcare so but
50:26
she has to defend it she asked exactly
50:29
and what’s gonna not look great for her
50:32
optics is the fact that Donald Trump
50:36
agreed with her that the VA is doing
50:38
well and he said that it was his
50:43
administration that is the reason that
50:47
it has improved so much over the last
50:51
few years now I I don’t like using
50:57
anecdotal evidence to support things
51:01
right but and I’m not really sure how
51:05
many people it requires to no longer be
51:08
anecdotal right it becomes a case study
51:13
after a minute right exactly and I I
51:16
know a lot of people who are in the
51:18
military and former military and all of
51:22
them have the same stories for me all of
51:26
them yeah I’ve never heard I’ve heard
51:29
one person who this guy I grew up with
51:35
him and he big Bernie supporter he
51:38
probably loves aoc I haven’t been on his
51:40
Facebook in a while wishes that we could
51:44
go full socialist he thinks that the VA
51:47
is great and he’s never had a problem
51:49
with it everybody else that I have
51:51
spoken to has talked about how awful it
51:54
is how they just throw medication at you
51:56
how they lose you how they don’t really
51:59
care that you’re there all this guy oh
52:00
look every horror that you could imagine
52:03
when you are in a state where you are
52:05
either sick and you need help or you’re
52:07
mentally ill and you need help or you’ve
52:09
injured yourself and you need help you
52:12
know nobody has ever had a good story
52:15
for me that I have spoken to personally
52:18
and I look at it and the in the fact
52:25
that every day I believe 12 12 or 13
52:31
veterans killed themselves every single
52:33
day yeah and almost all of them have
52:37
gone through the
52:38
system and have been medicated by the
52:41
beat right and they that’s a dish now
52:44
obviously there every day a large number
52:47
of Americans killed themselves so it’s
52:49
not as 22news means swing 22 that’s the
52:52
right number Thank You Shane
52:53
I was yeah but so obviously it’s not to
52:59
say that if those people hadn’t been
53:01
veterans none of them would have killed
53:02
themselves like I mean there’s a certain
53:03
unfortunately a number of them that
53:04
would have anyway but that is a
53:06
disproportionately very very high number
53:09
for you know for that that small of a
53:12
subset of a group of people compared to
53:14
like Americans at large and they come
53:16
from veterans kind of spans the
53:19
demographic and and and and you know the
53:22
racial ethnic even income level
53:25
demographics of the u.s. in general so
53:27
it’s not like oh well most of them are
53:29
poor so they’re more likely to do it
53:31
than people that are wealthy or
53:32
something like that it’s it’s really
53:34
like what they have gone through both
53:36
with any level of combat and also I mean
53:40
like a good number of veterans never
53:41
actually saw combat they may have seen
53:43
traumatic and stressful things but it’s
53:46
truly just the way they’ve been treated
53:47
by the VA system that ends up being one
53:49
of the major if not being major
53:51
contributor to them killing them so how
53:53
many people have killed themselves in
53:54
the parking lot of the BlueCross
53:56
building or you know Humana or Kaiser
53:59
Permanente or whatever why is this
54:01
almost exclusively happening at the VA
54:04
right there’s a reason for that like
54:07
it’s it’s it’s I mean and again
54:10
anecdotes are not data but it’s not
54:14
happening anywhere else but it’s
54:15
happening in the VA that’s a good hint
54:17
that maybe there’s a problem with the VA
54:19
but just like Bernie Sanders back in the
54:22
day had to defend breadlines
54:24
AOC has to defend the VA they have to
54:27
defend it because that’s what they want
54:29
they can’t convince you to embrace
54:32
socialism unless they say oh no bread
54:35
lines are great they’re free
54:37
you just wait in line and you get free
54:40
bread you have to defend it you yeah
54:46
Chris Reynolds says he’s literally at a
54:49
private hospital right now and it’s not
54:51
too shabby and
54:52
granted he has good health insurance
54:56
exactly and I hope that the reason that
54:58
you’re at that hospital isn’t a serious
55:00
one I saw you earlier today so I’m
55:03
guessing that you I hope you’re okay
55:06
call me later yeah call me later got
55:09
thoughts and prayers to to Chris
55:12
Reynolds who at the moment is our
55:13
highest bidder no so Shane Shane Sweeney
55:16
said four dollars and Chris still gives
55:18
us a lap dance so best of both worlds
55:22
right best of both worlds I’m actually
55:26
scared at the prospect of Chris Reynolds
55:29
giving me a lap dance so that’s all you
55:31
I’ll just take the four bucks or we’ll
55:36
split the four bucks you know what we’ll
55:37
split the four bucks
55:38
let’s put the fool you let’s put the
55:40
four bucks that lap hips is all yours
55:42
Jim
55:43
so wishing you well Chris yeah we see uh
55:46
but yeah like listen I’m I have MS for
55:50
those who don’t know I’m in Charlotte
55:53
for medical stuff I get multiple times a
55:57
year tens of thousands of dollars worth
55:58
of service I get an infusion every month
56:02
that costs eighteen that would cost
56:04
$18,000 cost my insurance company
56:06
eighteen thousand dollars every single
56:08
year to keep my MSF Bay that doesn’t
56:12
happen at the NHS my treatment in order
56:16
to get the treatment that I’m on in the
56:18
UK you have to be so profoundly disabled
56:21
and have tried multiple other
56:23
medications and had years of
56:26
demonstrating that it didn’t work before
56:28
they’ll even consider giving it to you
56:29
you pretty much have to be so far along
56:31
that they’re just keeping you from dying
56:33
at this point I’m still walking around
56:35
like I mean I’m still doing pretty well
56:37
and it’s because we have a private
56:39
health care system that I’m able to do
56:42
as well as I can with MS compared to I
56:44
talk to other people in other countries
56:46
and they’re like yeah it’s free and it’s
56:47
like you’re dying and I you know so
56:52
leave my healthcare alone if you want to
56:55
talk about if it’s not broke don’t fix
56:56
it there’s problems with our health care
56:57
system but it’s not that the government
56:59
isn’t involved at all
57:00
it’s the opposite right
57:05
so Dan Caldwell again from concerned
57:08
gatherings of America which fun fact one
57:12
of the last people I had a beer with CBA
57:16
Dan well Dan Caldwell yeah I was out
57:21
yeah I was at a CVA event I was a CBA
57:26
event over in Tampa one of my friends
57:27
from Nashville was performing at it and
57:30
she invited me over and I was hanging
57:32
out and afterwards we all went out to
57:34
grab a couple of beers and she
57:35
introduced me to Dan and I ended up
57:36
talking to him for a little bit nice guy
57:38
right but yeah but uh he said that you
57:43
know she’s using the straw man argument
57:44
and he did say that there are areas
57:48
where the VA is not bad but overall it’s
57:51
failing and he said you’re seeing more
57:53
people like congresswoman occasio Cortez
57:56
in Congress and outside trying to stop
57:58
that bill talking about the bill which
58:01
would privatize certain sections of the
58:02
VA trying to stop that bill and the
58:05
implication of it and keep veterans
58:06
trapped in many cases in failing VA
58:09
hospitals and that is what CVA is
58:12
essentially trying to end is that like
58:16
concerned Veterans of America is an a of
58:19
private health care booster group like
58:22
they’re they’re trying they’re not
58:23
trying to in it with the pharmaceutical
58:26
companies they’re they’re trying to like
58:29
I I can’t so I’m not a veteran my dad as
58:32
a veteran um but he also gets most of
58:36
his stuff through private care um
58:37
thankfully and because he is not a good
58:43
I’ve talked to again to people who had
58:46
largely good experiences one barely uses
58:49
it and the other one had like all these
58:51
crazy surgeries after after you know uh
58:55
losing a limb and having other issues
58:58
during combat um so they have largely
59:02
unique experiences compared to the vast
59:04
majority of veterans who have you know a
59:06
regular need for proper health care and
59:10
have chronic issues a lot of them PTSD
59:14
and there
59:18
not doing well um thank you but yeah so
59:24
I mean the tone-deafness required to say
59:28
yeah the VA if it ain’t broke don’t fix
59:31
it that’s it’s it’s beat its the equal
59:34
tone deafness of a Bernie Sanders saying
59:36
that bread lines are super weed oh um
59:39
and from the same and for the same
59:41
reason we have to defend the end result
59:43
of socialism because it’s what we want
59:45
it’s what our goal is exactly um so
59:52
speaking of I don’t have the notes in
59:56
front of me speaking I was like let’s
59:58
see how you do a segue without notes
60:01
speaking of Trump yes tweeting things at
60:07
people cuz had people at people because
60:10
he tweeted at AOC that he agreed with
60:13
her that the VA is not bad legitimate
60:16
segue so what JIT emit segue well he is
60:22
currently in a very public very
60:27
embroiled battle with libertarian hero
60:33
Judge Napolitano yep
60:36
judging the palate on which I actually
60:38
read back here I have an autographed
60:40
book from Judge Napolitano that the
60:43
former co-host of the show gave me for
60:45
my birthday when you that is that to my
60:49
left
60:50
no that’s Rush Limbaugh’s right the
60:53
autographed picture of Rush Limbaugh
60:54
that’s okay I’m like that’s not Judge
60:58
Napolitano Judge Andrew Napolitano for
61:02
those who don’t know he is a retired
61:03
judge who was about his libertarian as
61:07
will be allowed on major media um he’s a
61:09
he’s him and john stossel are kind of
61:11
the two words like wow you’re letting
61:13
them talk on TV right in front of
61:15
millions of people uh but but especially
61:17
Judge Napolitano cuz he really breaks
61:19
down like the legal basis for stuff and
61:22
he’s not so he has been very popular he
61:26
had a show on Fox Business which they
61:29
ended up going too far with some of
61:31
their
61:31
teks of government ended up getting
61:33
canceled but he’s still a regular on on
61:35
fox and on other networks
61:37
he was very beloved by the right during
61:40
the Obama years because he would often
61:43
criticize Obama because he’s the
61:44
libertarian and they go yeah screw Obama
61:46
and then when he would criticize Obama
61:49
on stuff that conservatives would have
61:51
otherwise liked but they just didn’t
61:53
like it cuz Obama was doing it they’re
61:55
like yeah screw Obama they really loved
61:58
engine Hippolyta no judge nap during the
62:01
last you know during that eight-year
62:03
period not so much during the Trump
62:05
administration because now he is
62:07
remaining consistent as a libertarian
62:09
and also criticizing Trump there are
62:12
times when he agrees with Trump on stuff
62:13
and they love and the you know the right
62:15
loves him again but I love when I will
62:18
see Napolitano
62:20
on Fox or something and you’ll look in
62:23
the comments on the on the you know the
62:26
video you’ll look in the comments and
62:27
people go I used to like you judge but
62:30
now you’ve changed and it’s like no he
62:34
has actually remained remarkably
62:35
consistent over the last decade right
62:38
you just are okay with it now cuz it’s a
62:40
Republican doing it you you change did
62:42
not your yeah your Overton Window moved
62:46
yeah your your yeah your Overton a Dutch
62:49
door has now opened on the other side
62:51
and he it’s a visual and and he and I
62:59
had nothing but um I was trying to think
63:03
of a double window yeah you’re the one
63:05
that changed he has he is still a
63:07
libertarian and he’s not even like y’all
63:09
would they wouldn’t hate us cuz I mean
63:11
like like he’s not even a hardcore he’s
63:14
more of like a constitutionalist
63:16
libertarian where he wants to return to
63:18
the original you know limitations that
63:22
are set forward in the Constitution as
63:24
originally written and so forth um you
63:26
know he’s not a like you know Matt is a
63:29
I guess still kind of America Stu slowly
63:32
being turned anarchists by his Jewish
63:34
co-host right and and I’m an anarchist
63:37
like we’re way more extreme than I’m
63:39
like you know make him look like a you
63:41
know a Democrat but but I respect him
63:44
because
63:45
he’s consistent and he is not he’s not a
63:49
hypocrite he doesn’t do like the
63:51
partisan thing he agrees with something
63:53
or disagrees with it based on the
63:55
ideology so even though there are times
63:56
where he’ll start talking about how the
63:58
Constitution should limit this time like
64:00
that means it sucks because it doesn’t
64:01
limit anything read Spooner um but even
64:06
when I disagree with him I still respect
64:08
that he is consistent and comes from a
64:12
very it was appropriate that he was a
64:14
judge because he’s very judicial and how
64:15
he how he approaches thing so I respect
64:18
him a lot
64:19
so if Trump agrees with him disagrees
64:21
with him Trump is wrong what is this I I
64:24
haven’t actually fought what is the
64:26
specific disagreement even about so it
64:28
all has to do with the Mueller report oh
64:30
yeah it all has to do with the Mueller
64:32
report and last week you and I were
64:35
talking about how many of the crimes
64:36
that he was the the obstruction crimes
64:39
that are that the Mueller report kind of
64:44
alludes to having been my right commit
64:48
not of yeah they were like well there
64:50
was nothing for them to be investigating
64:52
there was nothing for them to be
64:54
investigating so do these really count
64:55
as crimes okay so processed crimes there
65:01
they were all processed crimes so if
65:03
there’s no crime for them to be
65:04
investigating are they actually
65:05
committing a process that would being
65:07
obstructed right right right
65:08
so the judge said the statute prohibits
65:11
all attempts to interfere with the
65:14
government so if you think you are
65:15
interviewing with the government if your
65:17
purpose is to interfere with the
65:19
government in order to save yourself not
65:21
to help the government than you have
65:24
conviction based on the way that the law
65:27
is written okay he did not say that he
65:30
agreed with the law he didn’t say that
65:32
he thought that the Loess did he just
65:35
said the way that the law is written
65:37
this is how it’s written if you are
65:40
obstructing if you’re if you are
65:42
interfering with the government in order
65:44
to save yourself and not to help the
65:46
government then you have committed the
65:48
crime of obstruction so if the
65:52
prosecutor determines that you weren’t
65:55
just being difficult but you were
65:56
actually trying to obstruct what they
65:58
were doing even if
65:59
turns out nothing was done there was no
66:01
actual crime as a result of that you’re
66:03
still interfering with an investigation
66:04
right you are still interfering you
66:08
still committed obstruction so Trump and
66:12
he did this on a Shep Smith night
66:16
that’ll make sense later yeah of all the
66:19
people yeah yeah that’ll make sense
66:21
later
66:22
so Trump very not happy about this yes
66:27
got got his tiny little nubby fingers
66:30
working and he hit the old Twitter and
66:34
furiously typing I don’t know if it was
66:38
at 5:00 a.m. but we’re gonna pretend it
66:39
was at 5:00 a.m. and he was taking a
66:41
crap
66:42
5:00 a.m. toilet 25 a.m. between the
66:46
thumb tweeting tweets out and he said
66:50
ever since judgment and I’m trying to do
66:54
this one for memory I just wrote down
66:55
like what the the bullet points ever
67:01
since Judge Napolitano begged me for a
67:04
seat on for a seat on SCOTUS and bet and
67:11
asked for a pardon for one of his
67:14
friends he has been salty oh and he is
67:18
also friends with the low rating Shep
67:21
Smith which apparently which apparently
67:30
is an insult to be friends with somebody
67:35
who has low ratings on Fox News who has
67:39
the lower ratings on Fox News only a few
67:42
million people watched Shep Smith brain
67:49
he is nothing if not entertaining he is
67:51
nothing if not entertaining by the way I
67:53
love the well yeah I think the VA is
67:56
doing pretty well right now you’re
67:58
welcome I like that that was nice but um
68:02
it was a good counter counterpoint there
68:04
but um so this is I’m actually surprised
68:08
because I would have thought that that
68:10
wasn’t the case but he’s also a judge
68:13
and I honestly you know I’m not I don’t
68:17
consider myself a legal expert uh even
68:21
in complying and uh and so if if if a
68:26
you know former federal judge is saying
68:28
and one who’s pretty consistent in in
68:30
just interpreting the Constitution and
68:33
not you know applying how he thinks it
68:35
should be used but how it’s that or you
68:36
know just applying how laws are written
68:38
he’s probably right I know Alan
68:40
Dershowitz supposedly wrote a counter to
68:43
what he was saying but Alan whit’s who
68:47
by the way is also a good attorney he
68:50
also has a history of like his partisan
68:55
views getting involved in his you know
68:57
application of what he thinks that
69:00
should or shouldn’t be and he’s come to
69:03
like Trump almost entirely because of
69:05
Trump being like a Zionist
69:08
I get to say that because I’m Jewish
69:10
but uh what it is what it is Alan
69:13
Dershowitz is pretty hardcore leftist on
69:15
both sings and now he loves Trump so
69:19
anyway but yeah so I mean the fun thing
69:24
here for libertarians is that for the I
69:29
guess wing of libertarians who have
69:31
supported Trump the Trump or Tyrians if
69:33
you will one of their refrains has been
69:39
well you know he might appoint Judge
69:41
Napolitano to the Supreme Court and
69:45
after Trump appointed Neal Gorsuch it
69:52
almost maybe kind of sounded like maybe
69:55
it’s like yeah it sound kind of like it
69:58
was a thing that could possibly happen
70:01
and also because he has a relationship
70:04
with Judge Napolitano they’re both from
70:07
New York they both got that kind of New
70:09
York thing going they both did uh they
70:12
they both have an extended history with
70:15
Fox like they’ve both but yeah I believe
70:18
that he was on jut the judges show
70:20
multiple times and they’ve known each
70:21
other for you
70:23
yeah yeah so it was plausible but I
70:28
never really so the reason I didn’t
70:30
think it would happen is because Trump
70:31
knows that the judge apology Anna
70:36
wouldn’t hesitate to be the biggest
70:40
critic of you know something that Trump
70:44
is you know so if Trump’s if the
70:45
administration’s you know in in in a
70:48
case in front of the Supreme Court Judge
70:51
Napolitano would have zero problem with
70:53
being the at the head of opposing you
70:57
know of being for the other side that’s
70:59
against Trump if he agrees with with
71:01
them um so I I think just because he’s
71:04
so independent I didn’t think that would
71:07
happen and then once he appointed
71:10
Kavanagh I’m like Judge Napolitano it’s
71:12
not happening justice justice Supreme
71:15
Court justice to volunteer no it is not
71:18
happening and especially when you know
71:21
Napolitano is continuing to criticize
71:24
Trump the same way he would Obama this
71:26
is not someone who is auditioning for a
71:28
judicial role from a guy who is not
71:32
going to appoint you to anything if you
71:33
disagree with him publicly
71:34
um so and yeah not happening and the the
71:39
the official attorney of muddied waters
71:41
media Chris Reynolds attorney at law
71:44
attorney law he says that that is the
71:47
correct definition of obstruction yeah
71:51
yeah
71:52
so I like Matt was saying on last week’s
71:55
episode we were up the opinion that okay
71:59
so if the cops come to my house and
72:01
they’re like we want to come in and and
72:04
you know we want to you know come in and
72:06
and check for you know whatever and I’m
72:09
like no screw you and then it turns out
72:11
I didn’t do anything wrong anyway then I
72:15
wasn’t obstructing justice but it sounds
72:17
like no if they had a warrant and I
72:20
refused to investigate I’d still be
72:24
obstructing justice which to me doesn’t
72:25
seem fair that doesn’t seem right but
72:28
that there are many laws that aren’t
72:30
fair or right so and there’s a good
72:33
chance that Judge Napolitano doesn’t
72:35
even like that rule
72:36
because he’s also a libertarian and and
72:39
probably doesn’t like the idea of people
72:40
being compelled to tell on themselves
72:42
for lack of a better word um but he’s
72:47
just saying what the law says but he
72:50
said something that doesn’t go sit well
72:52
with Trump
72:52
Annie shut it set it to low ratings Shep
72:55
Smith to low rating Shep Smith rating
72:58
Shep Smith which is what I’ll be calling
73:00
him from now on
73:01
right I don’t even know his ratings are
73:02
low but I just I’m betting they’re
73:06
higher than ours I they’re probably a
73:08
little higher than ours probably a
73:10
little bit alright but ya know hey no
73:13
one’s calling us a low rating spike in
73:15
bat that’s so that is true my favorite
73:19
thing is we posted something about it
73:20
and all of the libertarians who loved
73:25
libertarians I’m putting that in quotes
73:27
if you’re just listening to us the
73:29
libertarians who loved Judge Napolitano
73:33
four years ago he’s the second coming
73:37
he’s the greatest judge out there he
73:39
needs to be on the Supreme Court are now
73:41
calling him a traitor are now calling in
73:43
a Lib tard yeah yeah you’re completely
73:46
valiantly no flake s JW y a snowflake
73:51
sjw Judge Napolitano what why don’t you
73:57
like our president he didn’t do anything
73:58
wrong there was no there was no
74:00
collusion Yeah right but that doesn’t
74:03
mean he didn’t obstruct which again
74:07
doesn’t make sense to me but I would err
74:10
on the side of the judge who is again so
74:15
there there are many judges that they’d
74:16
say something and I’m like now I don’t
74:18
believe you he is really really really
74:20
really really judicial like he is very
74:24
nonpartisan and non biased in his
74:28
application of the law says this I don’t
74:31
even have to like it but this is what
74:34
the law says which is why I have a
74:38
similar mindset of like okay if it says
74:40
this it says this that’s what it’s
74:41
supposed to say it’s a big part of why
74:43
I’m an anarchist because I don’t look at
74:44
the Constitution of them like well you
74:46
know the spirit of the Constitution is
74:48
that we’re supposed to be free I’m
74:49
reading the thing
74:50
like this says they can rob us as much
74:52
as they want they can use basically
74:55
whatever pretense they want to disarm us
74:57
and suspend habeas corpus and do
75:00
whatever the hell they want with us
75:01
everything that they Bram Lincoln did
75:02
was completely constitutional everything
75:04
that FDR did was completely
75:05
constitutional starting to think this
75:08
whole Constitution thing and really
75:09
doing much to protect us but it’s by
75:12
using that sort of like stoic
75:14
application of this is what the law says
75:16
it doesn’t matter what I think about
75:18
freedom or whatever else this thing says
75:21
that they can do that so if he says
75:23
that’s what it is I’m gonna err on the
75:24
side of agreeing with him right and Plus
75:27
Chris Reynolds said it too so official
75:30
official attorney of muddied waters
75:32
media official Bernie he had lap dancer
75:35
and lap dancer of muddied waters media
75:38
speaking of attorneys yeah sure that’s
75:49
their best I got works for me
75:52
speaking of attorneys who want to be
75:54
President mixing two metaphors I guess
75:57
combined Kamala Harris yes Kamala Harris
76:03
for anybody who doesn’t know Kamala
76:05
Harris is a former prosecutor from the
76:10
Bay Area in California yep not that
76:15
surprising when she came out and she
76:17
talked about how she used to smoke a
76:19
little weed to dre and snoop which did
76:23
not line I was Adrian Snooper was a
76:25
Tupac Tupac and Biggie to Paco some
76:31
snoop and then she said yeah Tupac and
76:33
Biggie or something that was like yeah
76:35
you were in school
76:36
before any of them were yeah before any
76:39
of them came out so no no you didn’t
76:42
right she put a lot of people in jail
76:47
for doing what she said that she had
76:48
done a lot which is why you know more so
76:52
than the outrage of the rapper TIFF you
76:56
know the rapper chronology or whatever
76:57
it was like you paged
77:01
countless will not count I’m sure
77:03
someone can count but a
77:04
large large number of people for doing
77:07
precisely that and now you’re sitting
77:10
here like giggling about it yeah yeah so
77:15
you’re doing about it it’s freeing them
77:17
well Trump is freeing so right away
77:19
you’re you’re giggling about it while
77:21
your parents are pissed off at you
77:22
because that’s oh yeah that stems from a
77:25
conversation about your Jamaican
77:27
heritage and yeah your dad was pissed
77:31
off that you played into Jamaican
77:33
stereotypes by the way if no one knew
77:37
what West Indian parents are like they
77:39
don’t care if you’re running for
77:41
president no they’re gonna publicly shit
77:45
in fact if you’re running for office
77:47
they’re gonna publicly shame you for
77:49
saying something that they disagree with
77:51
right that is the that was the most West
77:56
Indian parent thing about any of us who
77:59
don’t have less than being parents and
78:01
are not adjacent to West and the
78:03
apparent like myself who had a Western
78:07
who have West Indian in-laws will ever
78:10
experience I experience it occasionally
78:13
as someone who has West Indian in-laws
78:16
that was a very like you’re running for
78:20
president you say something get your dad
78:22
mad so he writes a scholarly article
78:26
about how wrong you are and how it
78:30
disappointed you he is and why he’s
78:32
disappointed in you which was just
78:34
brilliant to watch now
78:36
it was amazing yes everybody on the left
78:41
ignores this ignores everything we just
78:44
talked about ignores the fact that she
78:47
put countless people away in cages for
78:51
smoking a plant or possessing a plant
78:53
maybe not even smoking just possessing
78:55
it
78:55
she put she did that then she admits to
78:59
have doing what she put people in prison
79:02
for and they ignore that they ignored
79:07
that she played into a stereotype Oh Jim
79:11
into the stereotype of Jamaica as a
79:15
bunch of weed heads yes yeah let that go
79:19
but no Kamala Harris admitted while
79:24
campaigning that she owns a handgun and
79:27
Peter Funt yes from the from USA Today
79:32
yep
79:34
states that owning a handgun for
79:36
personal safety is a position held by
79:38
the NRA and not a progressive Democrat
79:41
yeah she had to justify it of course
79:48
and her justification was I was a career
79:52
prosecutor understandable you just put a
79:56
bunch of people in prison for something
79:58
they that many of us don’t believe they
80:00
should be in prison for some of them are
80:02
gonna be outraged yeah this news as they
80:07
should as how he should Peter Funt
80:12
says what she should have said because
80:16
Peter fund
80:18
I’m certain I didn’t look much into him
80:21
I’m certain that he’s got a law degree
80:24
and he’s had many public appearances
80:29
places and he knows the right way for
80:32
somebody like Kamala presidential
80:36
candidates are dealing with dangerous
80:39
criminals while serving as DEA in San
80:42
Francisco I felt compelled to have a
80:45
handgun after leaving that job I
80:49
disposed of the weapon that is what she
80:53
should have said but she couldn’t
80:54
because she did not dispose of the
80:55
weapon and she still had it now Peter
80:59
Funt must think that let’s say one of
81:04
the people that was pissed off that she
81:07
put them in jail for smoking a plant or
81:11
you know one of the wives of the sexual
81:14
partners that she had in order to get to
81:15
the top found out about it that’s fine
81:18
anybody you know anybody that may have
81:21
been pissed off at any at for any
81:23
particular reason right for any
81:24
particular reason they’re like oh well
81:27
she is no longer a prosecutor and she is
81:29
no longer banging my husband
81:31
I should have no reason to be mad at her
81:34
anymore I’m not gonna kill her and also
81:38
she’s currently in a building with a
81:40
sign that says no guns here so I
81:45
couldn’t even if I wanted to yeah
81:48
because the sign says it’s illegal right
81:50
exactly now I am like most people I
81:57
think I’m gonna say like most people I
82:01
have played out vengeance fantasies in
82:05
my mind against people who have wronged
82:07
me not the healthiest thing I understand
82:13
that but I have definitely done it mine
82:16
never includes shooting them but I just
82:19
tried I just picture what it would be
82:21
like to destroy their lives each their
82:23
right other people other people are like
82:28
now I’m gonna go kill this person then
82:30
they fall in I did a medley kill kill
82:32
this person right right I’m gonna go
82:33
legitimately kill this person Peter Funt
82:35
must never have had any sort of
82:39
vengeance fantasy or been on a revenge
82:44
quest of any kind because yeah because
82:51
go ahead go ahead because if he was ever
82:54
in a situation where his girlfriend or a
82:57
boyfriend I don’t want to assume where
82:59
his girlfriend her boyfriend left him
83:01
for somebody else and or cheated on him
83:04
with somebody else or whatever right he
83:06
was very upset about it and he was very
83:08
angry at the girlfriend or boyfriend and
83:10
the person that they cheated on with if
83:12
they stopped doing that did he just go
83:15
okay well I’m done I’m not angry anymore
83:17
no they were done so gun control the
83:26
three groups I like to group people
83:27
that’s an anarchistic group everyone
83:29
know the three main I guess schools of
83:32
thought of people who support gun
83:34
control are the the politicians who
83:39
realize that it’s really it’s not ending
83:41
gun violence it’s just centralizing
83:43
power to them
83:45
you know making it so they’re the only
83:46
ones who can effectively use violence
83:48
against anyone and just solidifying
83:50
their power day I get why they support
83:52
it because they are sociopaths and and
83:57
this is a great way to disarm the
83:59
populace I get why they do it they’re
84:00
still scum the the other group are
84:03
people that live in violence ravaged
84:05
areas who just associate guns with just
84:09
endless violence a lot of them are like
84:11
mothers and stuff they’re not even
84:13
thinking about trying to defend
84:14
themselves they just constantly see gang
84:16
warfare and they’re just thinking like I
84:18
just I don’t even you know if you try to
84:20
talk with them about statistics or
84:21
whatever they’re like I’m scared to go
84:23
outside I just want you know and their
84:25
and their politicians are telling them
84:26
that the only way to stop it is gun
84:28
control and they’re like fine just you
84:30
know I just I don’t want to be scared to
84:31
go outside damn I also get it I wish
84:36
that I wish they think it through a
84:39
little bit more and realize that gun
84:41
control is part of what made this
84:42
problem bad in the first place more
84:44
often than not but I also get that I get
84:47
that you’re in this like crisis
84:50
situation where you’re just like please
84:51
just get these guns away from me the
84:54
third group which I sounds like Peter
84:56
Funt is in is what I call the unaffected
85:00
mostly white suburban liberal group
85:03
which are people that have the privilege
85:06
of not experiencing violence or threats
85:10
of violence and so they watch TV and
85:13
they go oh God there was a shooting
85:17
these people with their guns oh I hope
85:20
that the police could just take their
85:23
guns and keep me safe from gun violence
85:25
and the problem is first of all to
85:29
really truly support gun control like it
85:32
or not you have to love the police and a
85:35
lot of them pretend they don’t you have
85:37
to love the police because you want the
85:39
police to be the only people who can
85:42
kill you and you don’t want to be able
85:45
to kill anyone back I get it this is a
85:52
very I’m about to make an incredibly
85:54
sexist heteronormative sis normative
85:57
statement I get why
85:59
generally speaking not all I get why
86:04
many women support gun control there
86:07
come and again I know it’s some of the
86:09
biggest gun fanatics I know are women so
86:11
I did it not all many women their
86:14
parents their you know mothers there
86:16
they come from a place of nurturing and
86:18
support and they’re thinking these guns
86:20
they’re just killing people
86:22
and they’re not fully thinking through
86:23
the praxis of like the cops still have
86:27
to have guns how are you going to take
86:28
everyone’s guns if you’re gonna have to
86:30
have masks of massive excavations of gun
86:32
violence whatever they’re just thinking
86:33
of guns in the abstract is like if
86:35
they’re dangerous and it is good it’s so
86:37
I get that I cannot picture being an
86:42
intact male human and saying ah guns get
86:50
up away from me my reaction of hearing
86:54
that there’s danger is I want to be able
86:56
to protect myself and others from that
86:59
danger not man I hope there are a lot of
87:02
cops here that can protect me from that
87:05
danger um and I’m not like the most
87:08
hyper masculine guy on earth but I just
87:12
I I will never get it I have a hard time
87:15
being around males that support gun
87:19
control um especially the ones that are
87:23
like no one should ever have a gun and
87:25
I’m just like your soy consumption is
87:29
too high there is a healthy amount of
87:33
soy consumption and you have you might
87:36
also have some thyroid issues because
87:38
your your estrogen is too high I don’t
87:42
have two blood tests you you have
87:44
elevated phytoestrogens and you need to
87:47
do something about it
87:48
with an endocrinologist and maybe
87:51
introduce some animal flesh to offset
87:54
the soy you do not need this much soy I
87:59
actually got into this discussion with
88:01
somebody who’s a guy which was weird and
88:08
it’s weird it’s weird it’s just weird
88:11
but I got into this discussion
88:13
and you know he was like I you know I’m
88:15
forgotten control and I was like there
88:18
you can’t do that
88:20
like he’s like no I just don’t I think
88:22
we should get rid of all guns and I said
88:24
so so initially I was like okay but
88:29
who’s gonna turn in their guns right
88:31
like I get like I started I’m white and
88:34
he goes well yeah but eventually the
88:35
citizen won’t like pull them back in and
88:37
like the guns will all get filtered out
88:38
and I’m like right so so then the only
88:43
people left with the guns are gonna be
88:45
the military and the police and goes
88:46
well I think we should just stop
88:48
manufacturing bullets altogether who
88:53
enforces this they don’t think it
88:57
through
88:57
right like you’re talking about at a
89:00
global scale nobody and who forces it
89:06
and how are you gonna stop them hey you
89:08
stop making those bullets or what or I’m
89:11
gonna stop you Wow
89:13
you don’t even go just like I it takes
89:17
it so this is in the same way that
89:18
vegans think that they’re saving animals
89:20
by only eating stuff that you know
89:23
requires massive amounts of killing of
89:25
wildlife to produce and protect from
89:28
from you know from predator from from
89:30
you know birds and stuff that might want
89:31
to eat it they don’t think through
89:33
exactly how many animals have to die for
89:34
them to get their asparagus and broccoli
89:36
which by the way I love asparagus and
89:38
broccoli right but they don’t think it
89:41
through
89:42
you’re not thinking it through of the
89:46
massive amounts of gun violence and
89:48
jailing of minorities that like and
89:51
that’s and so when I talk to I have a
89:53
standard question which I’ve never had
89:55
answered yet and I and I tell people I
89:57
say the history of the gun control of
89:59
gun control in the u.s. the very first
90:00
gun control laws passed in the US were
90:02
passed to prevent freed slaves promoting
90:05
weapons basically the whites didn’t want
90:06
the blacks to have guns because they
90:07
were scared that they would like say hey
90:10
remember when you used to own me how and
90:11
and and and also they wanted more so
90:14
they also wanted to continue to oppress
90:16
black people and it’s a lot easier to do
90:17
that when they don’t have guns um so the
90:20
very first laws in this country were to
90:22
keep black people from being able to
90:24
defend themselves against racist white
90:25
people
90:26
and ever since then every single not
90:29
just gun control law but laws in general
90:31
are disproportionately enforced against
90:34
primarily black people but people of
90:36
color in general minority populations in
90:38
general but especially black people
90:39
there’s a myriad of reasons for this
90:42
institutional racism the fact that black
90:44
people tend to live in more urban areas
90:46
which have heavier levels of enforcement
90:47
whatever the bottom line is that if you
90:50
pass a law the vast majority of people
90:52
that are gonna have it enforced against
90:53
them and are gonna be punished for it
90:54
are black people so my question and and
90:58
Donald Trump is currently pressed so my
91:00
question to gun control advocates is how
91:02
many more black people does Donald Trump
91:05
have to put in a cage before you feel
91:08
sufficiently safe and I asked for like a
91:11
number or even a number range fifty to a
91:14
hundred thousand under two hundred
91:15
thousand five hundred thousand to a
91:17
million like give me a ballpark of how
91:19
many black people need to be imprisoned
91:22
for you to feel like your little Timmy
91:26
and Rebecca can you know go to the
91:28
soccer field see and I’ve yet to get an
91:30
answer on that I get a bunch of
91:32
obfuscation about the NRA crap like that
91:34
but no no one will tell me how many
91:35
black people they want to be forcibly
91:38
detained and and caged and deep
91:41
disenfranchised for the rest of their
91:43
lives until they feel safe ha and then
91:47
you always end up getting the question
91:48
the the David hog question of how many
91:51
ar-15s did Jesus have I mean stocks do
91:57
you have a clear backpack full of rocks
92:06
did he have David how many fake stories
92:10
about beating the school shooting video
92:13
all of women’s less than ooh Oh less
92:18
than even one um yeah yeah yeah Jesus I
92:24
like I I my favorite arguments are ones
92:28
that use Jesus from secular progressives
92:33
who hate Christianity and everything it
92:36
stands for hate religion in general but
92:38
really really hate Chris
92:40
who will say like well Jesus wouldn’t
92:44
have done that and I’ll say oh well then
92:46
you’re obviously a really hardcore
92:47
Christian right because you seem to be
92:49
guided by what Jesus would do um
92:52
obviously obviously my other favorite
92:57
one is well Jesus didn’t drug test
93:00
people before he gave them food free
93:04
stuff he was making it the story of what
93:07
okay for those who don’t believe in the
93:10
Gospels the story and for those who do
93:13
believe he you know whether you believe
93:15
it or not the story is that Jesus made
93:19
of food from nothing and gave it to
93:21
people Jesus didn’t give people
93:23
socialized health care He healed them
93:25
magically so if you know of a politician
93:29
that can heal people magically awesome
93:31
but at no point did you to say oh my
93:33
gosh you’re sick everyone now give me
93:35
your money or I’ll kill you
93:37
give me your money or you’re going to
93:40
jail going yeah I’m gonna take your
93:42
stuff and if you fight back it gets
93:44
beyond kill every single last one of you
93:45
and trust me I know my future it’s not
93:47
pretty you don’t want to do it yeah okay
93:51
being killed I can tell you already not
93:54
fun going to jail and the Roman Empire
93:57
not a Goods I’m not I give you one star
94:02
on Yelp
94:04
crucifixion service one Yelp star one
94:09
yoke so if I knew how to say Yelp in
94:10
Latin that would make me so happy nope I
94:16
mean I just
94:17
Aramaic but I mean Latin closest I could
94:20
get I have to think Yelp is one of those
94:23
onomatopoeias where it kind of always
94:25
sounds like yo so maybe it’s like Yelp
94:27
and you you’re actually probably you’re
94:30
probably correct yo yo
94:35
OPA all right so um real quick
94:42
we don’t let that’s it um real quick as
94:48
we said at the beginning of the show
94:49
this is our 100th episode yeah we
94:53
is crazy I mean when this show started I
94:58
didn’t think we were gonna get past like
95:00
four maybe six I I honestly didn’t I I
95:04
did not and I’m not blaming the other
95:08
co-hosts like I’m legitimately blaming
95:10
me because I didn’t think I was gonna
95:11
want to do this where and it turned out
95:16
like this is the most fun I have every
95:19
week is this show is the hour half to
95:22
two hours that I do this show is the
95:25
most fun I have every week this is
95:30
actually this is the hundredth episode
95:32
of muddied waters of freedom this is my
95:34
99th episode on this show I have missed
95:39
one you have oh yeah
95:42
the infamous the infamous Alaska spike
95:46
no not that one that one didn’t count as
95:49
the show did it did we did we said
95:51
number though yeah we didn’t number that
95:53
no yeah you had your out that’s good
95:55
when I was in a yeah when I was in
95:56
Alaska there was there over the last
95:59
summer the former co-host did one
96:02
episode while I was gone and that one
96:05
counted as an episode so this is my 99th
96:09
episode math was really hard for me
96:14
today and I believe this is your 29th
96:18
because you started on episode 72 as the
96:21
co-host and I think you were on one
96:25
before that yeah I guess I guest-hosted
96:28
like back in December of the November
96:31
the year before
96:32
yeah November the year before Yeah right
96:34
I forgot about that yeah I sure did no
96:36
because I was you and I had started
96:38
talking because that was when our
96:40
recovering addicts became friends yeah
96:43
yeah yeah and then I was I hema anyone
96:46
come on the show and then I thank you
96:47
and I got a little teary eyed for you
96:49
know cuz I was going through a hard time
96:50
and I don’t know if we were streaming at
96:53
the time but no it did cry so you it may
96:58
have read out of it with this but they
96:59
were crying but there yeah there there
97:01
were tears but yeah so this is I think
97:04
this is your 29th and if
97:07
buddy if anybody wants to go back and
97:09
listen to episode one
97:11
I don’t wreck it a spider just literally
97:15
fell on my nose and is like laying a web
97:20
all episode great huh 100th episode
97:25
spider that turns into spider-man on the
97:30
other than 100,000 I felt something on
97:34
the nose I was oh god what is that and
97:36
then I felt like the web everywhere and
97:41
I’m like what how attractive but if
97:47
anybody was like if I don’t recommend it
97:49
but if anybody goes back and listens
97:50
like episode 1 it’s awful it’s terrible
97:54
it’s really bad it is so bad but over
97:59
the years because of the help from
98:01
friends I still feel it like everywhere
98:03
it’s really I’m not like even afraid of
98:07
spiders but I just feel like the web
98:09
everywhere yes like I’m looking like a
98:14
meth head but I now feel crawling right
98:23
and I’m nowhere near you but you know
98:27
thanks to thanks to friends who knew how
98:30
to do things and friends who you know
98:32
friends who understood how to make a
98:35
show decent we got the right equipment
98:37
we started learning how to do a show
98:41
properly but the the co-hosts had this
98:46
really odd voice change around episode
98:49
72 and and like we’ve gone through a lot
98:56
over the first two years two and a half
98:58
years of this podcast and for everybody
99:00
who has been with me with muddied waters
99:04

99:06
with it all of this way to get to where
99:09
we are today and to everybody that we
99:11
have picked up along the way thank you
99:13
to you for finding us and for sharing us
99:16
and for reviewing us and for
99:19
becoming fans of the show
99:22
not even a being spiked you may hate us
99:24
I don’t care but like just enjoying the
99:26
show no I don’t have to like us
99:28
no it’s respect show to all of you thank
99:32
you because I honestly spike mentioned
99:37
earlier that have an autographed picture
99:39
of Rush Limbaugh on the wall and I do
99:40
I’ve had that picture since I was 16 I
99:46
think maybe younger 15 16 somewhere in
99:48
there I wanted to do political talk
99:53
radio so all I wanted to do and I would
99:59
listen to Rush Limbaugh every day
100:01
because he was doing it and he was doing
100:04
it really really well because yeah and I
100:07
wanted to figure out how to do that
100:10
because of the fans that watch I mean we
100:14
don’t make any money doing this we’re
100:15
doing this for you guys really and the
100:17
fact that we have fun doing it but like
100:19
soon that way continue so but yeah yes
100:21
that might be changing soon but because
100:26
of you guys you actually give us a
100:27
reason to do this and literally each and
100:31
every one of you is making me is
100:33
allowing me to make my dream come true
100:35
that I have wanted for 25 years and so
100:40
thank you for that I definitely
100:42
appreciate it it’s it it is humbling to
100:45
be able to do the show every week like
100:48
spike and I have never actually been in
100:50
the same room but he’s my best friend in
100:52
in the world no he’s my second best
100:56
friend in the world I can’t say that
100:57
Dave Carter always is gonna win that
100:58
battle but he’s my best friend
101:02
definitely going to talk to this
101:04
regularly and and honestly I if it
101:10
wasn’t for the people who were watching
101:11
us at least you know sporadically this
101:15
wouldn’t make any sense for us to do
101:16
because we could do this without doing
101:17
all of this extra crap that we do so
101:19
thank you Tom right yeah it’s just we
101:21
just call each other but thank you to

101:35

102:05

Thursday on the writer’s block I’m
103:12
actually I’m really excited about this
103:14
guest that I have on Thursday he is like
103:17
a living he is like a real-life Ron
103:20
Swanson yeah it’s it’s insane like
103:25
massively libertarian he builds
103:27
everything himself he like finished his
103:30
like he bought a house but then he
103:32
refinished the entire thing he left a
103:34
city because it was it was too strict on
103:37
what he was allowed to do when he wasn’t
103:39
allowed to do and he moved out to the
103:40
middle of the country and he’s like man
103:42
out here I can collect my rainwater
103:44
I can go shooting in my backyard like I
103:46
don’t need to pull permits for anything
103:48
like but in and he does all the woodwork
103:51
himself he has made me multiple pens
103:53
wooden pens that I have around this
103:56
office and this house he is one of the
103:59
reasons I became a libertarian Brett
104:03
Corey arey he’s like my big brother I I
104:05
love that guy so much but he has agreed
104:09
to come on the show on Thursday I’m so
104:11
excited to have him on hey is that gonna
104:14
be an in person or over the over over
104:16
yeah no he lives in Tennessee oh okay
104:19
okay well that’s awesome that sounds
104:21
really good
104:22
by the way and I I your last episode was
104:25
one of my I told you this is one of my
104:27
favorite that you’ve had so far um it’s
104:29
also really good it’s also one of
104:31
YouTube’s favorites I died believe it
104:34
you’re the quality of your program has
104:36
really been going up and I’ve said that
104:38
you publicly or privately but I’m saying
104:40

104:42
increasingly whelming show no I know an
104:46
increasingly good show um and it’s so
104:48
that’s on Thursday will be a Brett Corey
104:50
arey
104:51
you said his name is so that’s very good

I’m looking forward to that because I
104:54
like real life bro I sort of a Ron
104:56
Swanson in that I like breakfast meats
104:59
and dark women but uh it starts that
105:02
I’ve never actually wood worked so it
105:04
starts to fall off after that and then
105:06
and I never worked for the city so
105:08
that’s also it yeah he’s he’s never
105:10
worked for the city either he’s always
105:12
been on a private businessman which is
105:14
which exactly more want Ron Swan right
105:17
Ron Swanson never would have worked for
105:19
Ron Swanson in real life never would
105:21
have worked for the city no no
105:23
definitely not ended up working for the
105:25
federal government which was anyway okay
