Agnew the next Spiro Agnew that’s that’s
06:09
fair that is very possible because I’m
06:11
pretty sure if we got elected we’d get
06:12
impeached pretty quickly really quickly
06:14
pretty darn quickly so pretty quick
06:17
unless we also get a landslide
06:20
libertarian Congress and even then it’s

08:21
airwaves yeah we have only had well
08:25
clean-shaven and you know stubble truth
08:27
for the last for the last little bit so
08:30
it’s been nice to have some to have some
08:32
to have some bearded truth that’s right
08:35
the beer we need a little bit of bearded
08:37
truth back well guys speaking of beards
08:41
big news at the Oscars Matt right trying
08:49
to figure out that one there’s a lot of
08:52
beards at the Oscars sure yesterday the
08:57
Oscar nominations were announced Joker
08:59
taking a massive lead which shocks many
09:02
people even though I thought it was a
09:04
good movie I didn’t think you’re a
09:05
Soviet movie and I think it was like
09:07
it’s a
09:08
it’s a it’s a really good movie but I
09:10
didn’t think it was Oscar caliber but
09:11
it’s leading the way with 11 nominations
09:15
but just like every other year the
09:18
Oscars have some form of controversy
09:21
right
09:22
last year Oscars so white a couple years
09:27
ago Oscars so sexist I think was one you
09:31
just kind of always get it people were
09:35
outraged this year that Greta Gerwig
09:38
wasn’t nominated for Best Director for
09:43
Little Women calling the show sexist
09:46
does that really Greta Gerwig that is
09:49
Greta Gerwig right there I just had no I
09:52
never heard of her before I’d like I
09:55
know that I know she’s a director and I
09:57
know that she’s been nominated in the
09:59
past but I didn’t know what she looked
10:00
like and all I saw was that you put
10:02
Greta in the notes and I was very very
10:04
worried you’re gonna go that would have
10:10
been way funnier but I didn’t have time
10:11
no right now I get that but they call
10:16
the this year’s show sexist for her not
10:19
getting nominated but then they failed
10:21
to realize that this year had the
10:23
highest percentage of women ever
10:24
nominated at 31 percent hmm this is an
10:31
interesting headline for an article it
10:34
is yeah
10:35
because they have to make this a bad
10:38
thing
10:41
despite female directors so despite the
10:43
fact that one of the people who directed
10:46
a movie didn’t get an Oscar this has
10:51
been a great year for women but this one
10:54
woman but didn’t get an Oscar because
10:57
it’s and it’s not possible that the
10:59
other movies were just deemed by the
11:01
Academy to be better it’s clearly sexism
11:04
despite despite despite 31% of nominees
11:09
being which is apparently a record high
11:13
right we still have that’s what said
11:15
that’s this is the this is the the gap
11:18
because that would mean 69 percent were
11:20
men
11:21
I don’t want to assume all of their
11:23
genders but I would think that that’s
11:24
probably the case probably yeah probably
11:29
it’s pretty safe to assume that 69% of
11:31
them were men however last year I think
11:35
it was a 24% were women and it was the
11:38
most and now we’ve got 31% woman so but
11:41
but but but Matt Matt Matt but Greta
11:43
credit did not but credit in the movie
11:48
was little women like how many times
11:50
have they remade that movie they’re
11:56
gonna keep remaking it until you give a
11:58
woman a damn film to write hesitant film
12:01
director Oscar that’s what ready to
12:03
happen well Kathryn Bigelow got that a
12:07
few years ago for Hurt Locker yeah but
12:11
that was incredibly no you’re right that
12:14
wasn’t Greta this is Greta issed
12:17
so when Kathryn Bigelow won by the way
12:20
this is fun though Oscar good for you oh
12:22
no that was a really great moment for me
12:27
when she won because that year was the
12:31
year the avatar came out and everybody
12:34
assumed that avatar was gonna win and
12:36
avatar is a piece-of-crap movie just
12:39
like pretty much anything James Cameron
12:40
has done since 1994 he also did Titanic
12:46
for anybody who doesn’t know and I hate
12:48
that movie too but avatar I mean avatar
12:52
is Dances with Wolves as a cartoon
12:55
that’s all it is
12:56
you take Dances with Wolves and you take
12:58
Fern Gully and you mash it together and
13:00
they have some abhorrent little baby
13:02
that’s in 3d and that’s how you get
13:03
avatar and everybody was like Oh James
13:06
Cameron’s gonna win Kathryn Bigelow won
13:10
which makes it even better because
13:12
Kathryn Bigelow is James Cameron’s
13:14
ex-wife ooh
13:16
so he may have been making he may have
13:20
made the movie that at the time made the
13:21
most money ever but he got bitch-slapped
13:23
by his ex-wife on national TV when she
13:26
was called a better director than him
13:27
the best of times and the worst of times
13:29
Matt you you you get the the
13:31
highest-grossing movie ever and
13:33
wide critical acclaim about the remake
13:36
of Fern Gully like you said the
13:38
multi-billion dollar remake of Fern
13:40
Gully
13:40
and then but your ex-wife btf owes you
13:49
at the Oscars that’s right now if you
13:52
were like making a deal would like Satan
13:54
and which I’m assuming James Cameron
14:00
dead to me yeah I know that guy I would
14:02
never think so so he’s like okay here’s
14:04
the deal I’m gonna get you the top
14:07
grossing movie of all time
14:10
but right your ex-wife is going to beat
14:14
you for Best Director at the Oscars I
14:16
don’t know I take that deal and you’re
14:19
going to hell forever
14:20
well yeah that too but that’s just him
14:25
being at the Oscars replaying the moment
14:27
where they call Kathryn Bigelow’s name
14:29
over and over and over again and he
14:32
doesn’t get to stand up and walk out to
14:33
take the trophy that’s his hell there’s
14:37
no burning he just he just replays
14:39
Kaplan’s everybody back home and over
14:42
and over and over everyone looking at
14:45
him like as soon as she finishes her
14:47
speech and they start the next one just
14:49
resets all the way back to begin Wow so
14:52
he doesn’t even get to witness her
14:53
speech he just experienced so he has a
14:56
huge speech because he doesn’t get
14:59
thanked so the speech and then boom
15:02
right straight back and then he gets to
15:04
occasionally experience through other
15:08
famous people’s eyes when they found out
15:11
and then immediately look at him to see
15:13
his reaction so he get to see his
15:15
reaction from countless points of view
15:19
of famous people of them just experience
15:22
of you know them seeing him mortified
15:24
that his ex-wife beat him yes but he
15:29
didn’t make billions he did make
15:31
millions on it he he did make billions
15:35
we here at muddy waters media would you
15:40
know we just like to say don’t make
15:42
deals with the devil just don’t because
15:46
they don’t they don’t usually
15:47
work out well turns out turns out you’re
15:51
gonna you’re not gonna like it
15:52
we have some comments here Jason was
15:55
very happy to be a Segway a great day in
15:58
the morning it’s a great day in the
15:59
morning indeed Jason and more a great
16:02
day we weren’t having said that no why I
16:03
know we don’t we haven’t that’s what I
16:05
was happy to say Sarah and Angela super
16:08
fan super fan caesarian and reg says
16:11
would it be sexist if it was 60% women
16:14
being nominated at 40% men no it would
16:16
be this room that’s diversity right
16:19
that’s diversity
16:20
she also said Titanic is trash oh no are
16:25
we gonna oh no ok good
16:27
so she’s be agrees Titanic it’s trash
16:30
yeah I don’t need to go into why but
16:32
we’ll just leave it at that
16:33
so also speaking of beards cory booker
16:36
mat cory booker ended his campaign for
16:40
president didn’t he yes he did he ended
16:44
his campaign the president something
16:46
lakh funds in it and the oncoming
16:48
impeachment hearing as reason why he is
16:51
backing out forgetting he seems to have
16:55
forgotten that he’s pulling it 2 percent
16:58
or less and it’s just generally
17:00
unlikable that is possibly a factor just
17:03
a little bit the good news the good news
17:06
for Cory is he is now only shooting for
17:09
reelection in New Jersey so instead of
17:12
performing a countrywide campaign he has
17:14
much more time to dedicate to his beard
17:17
this is of course for zari of Dawson
17:20
pictured here with Cory Booker genuinely
17:24
in love as you can that’s that’s what
17:27
genuine love looks like it looks right
17:30
a little exactly what genuine love looks
17:33
like Cory Booker is just looking at a
17:34
male crotch from across the room ya know
17:38
he has the look of male crotch
17:39
satisfaction she has a look of mild
17:42
horror and put that together and that’s
17:46
love man
17:46
that’s love dad is love now of course
17:51
Matt would Cory out of the race the
17:52
diversity of the Democratic field has
17:54
dropped quite a bit pretty extensively
17:57
it’s prompting the hashtag Dems debate
18:00
so white
18:01
ahead of the debate which is I’m told
18:04
happening that oh and Marianne
18:12
Williamson also dropped out she didn’t
18:15
she dropped out and I have it so did
18:18
hooli aunt Astra Julian Castro dropped
18:21
out so it’s becoming a lot lower
18:23
more white Meili the Democratic field
18:28
and speaking of white Meili Joe Biden
18:33
you know and I just realized I didn’t
18:35
put into the notes the graphic that I
18:38
made for that dim debate so white thing
18:41
oh yeah here you talked about the dem
18:47
debates being white
18:48
hold on yeah with Andrew Yang who is
18:52
still running but not qualifying for
18:55
today’s debate I thought he was it worth
18:57
place in some of the polls or something
18:59
he you sure in some of them but not the
19:02
qualifying ones apparently but with
19:06
Andrew yang not being in the debate you
19:08
have Joe Biden Bernie Sanders Tom Steyer
19:11
Elizabeth Warren Pete bootie judge and I
19:18
feel like I’m forgetting somebody that I
19:20
can’t think of off the top of my Amy
19:23
Klobuchar Amy Klobuchar all of those are
19:27
very very pasty it’s like watching an
19:29
episode of muddied waters media on the
19:34
democratic debate stage I’m not pasting
19:38
that I’m trying my best okay yet can me
19:42
too but look at me
19:46
so the exceptionally the exceptionally
19:50
inclusive and free thinking Democratic
19:55
Party has three old white guys two old
20:00
white women and Peabody Judge up on the
20:03
main stage for the last debate before
20:06
the Iowa caucus well that is unfortunate
20:10
that I I was not
20:14
here’s the here’s the graphic by the way
20:17
they’re a bait so white it was worth it
20:19
it’s worth the wait
20:20
it was worth the wait and and all
20:22
fairness um that’s not real hashtag we
20:26
just literally created it I think well I
20:29
would hope someone else came up with
20:30
that – I mean I would hope but I didn’t
20:34
see it anywhere and I checked Twitter
20:36
last night when I made the graphic so
20:40
speaking of so white going so speaking
20:44
of so white Joe Biden Joseph I make the
20:49
black kids get in the pool and touch my
20:51
legs underwater then I call them
20:55
cockroaches and threatened to wrap a
20:57
chain around their neck Biden all that’s
21:00
true by the way Joe by in fact he told
21:02
us it was proud of that I’m tired of
21:07
being the one to defend Joe Biden and
21:09
there’s a floating him he didn’t make
21:13
them get into the pool and touched his
21:15
leg hair
21:15
he knows make them sit on his lap oh so
21:19
they wanted to touch his leg hair is
21:20
that what we’re going with that
21:22
that’s what historians okay officer you
21:24
see they wanted this if they didn’t want
21:28
to touch his leg hair why were they
21:30
wearing swim trunks huh huh anyway guys
21:34
Joe Biden oh by the way this episode is
21:37
brought to you where is it
21:40
this episode is brought to you by the
21:41
Libertarian Party dad bought calendar
21:43
there’s a man right there that you want
21:46
to get underwater and touch his leg here
21:49
surely it is not I have quite a bit of
21:52
leg hair I actually absorbed most of the
21:54
water in this picture um the libertarian
21:58
dad bod calendar with your favorite sexy
22:01
libertarian men including me mr. April
22:03
the sweet summer boy spike coming
22:05
himself you can go to libertarian dad
22:07
bod dot-com it’s $12 including shipping
22:10
and then it’s also brought to you sepsis
22:13
also brought to you by the libertarian
22:15
party Waffle House caucus the
22:16
fastest-growing caucus it’s based in a
22:19
breakfast place and that has waffles
22:22
so speaking of Joe Biden so Joe Biden is
22:27
now leading
22:28
in the average of polls he’s leaving
22:30
nationally by 8 points and what’s even
22:35
more so is that not only is he leading
22:37
in in not only his old uncle sniffy up
22:40
to an eight-point lead nationally
22:43
he’s also leading by 0.4 points in Iowa
22:46
one point in New Hampshire 5.7 in Nevada
22:52
and 17 percentage points in South
22:55
Carolina
22:56
now folks those are of course the the
22:59
first four primary states now I’ve got
23:02
news for you guys if Joe Biden sweeps
23:05
the first four primary states there’s a
23:09
chance he could still lose that’s not
23:11
enough delegates to win outright but
23:13
he’s gonna have so much Joe momentum
23:16
that it’s pretty well assured that he
23:20
will be the nominee wouldn’t you say
23:22
Matt yeah if he wins the first four
23:25
primary you’re immediately gonna see Amy
23:27
Klobuchar drop out you’re merely gonna
23:29
see pretty much everybody drop out
23:33
except for Bernie and Warren and Buddha
23:36
judge it’ll be those four Buddhist
23:38
judges only staying in I think at this
23:40
point for cabinet position cabinet
23:45
position highly high-level position
23:47
possibly VP that’s fair
23:50
I don’t Bernie rookie bernie is in it to
24:00
win it
24:00
and he will stay in until the absolute
24:03
bitter end
24:04
yeah yeah well if you put your right if
24:06
if Biden wins the first four over it’s
24:11
it’s it’s all I mean unless a massive
24:13
scandal happens but he’s kind of the
24:15
Trump of of the Democrats he kind of is
24:18
little Democrats he creates his own
24:20
scandals and everyone just kind of
24:23
shrugs and goes well you know how he is
24:24
and and it’s motus war yeah it’s he he
24:31
has said things that would have gotten
24:33
most people arrested drop me right on
24:37
out of politics
24:40
and he just keeps going he says whatever
24:44
the hell he feels like and in a similar
24:46
fashion to Trump he case even bites
24:49
people onstage and people are like oh
24:51
that was adorable look at him close his
24:53
wife I don’t know I know he’d be bit
24:57
someone on stage and they went hat yeah
24:59
well that’s look at how cute and loving
25:02
they are yeah that’s adorable I’d bite
25:04
my wife all the time on stage it’s
25:06
really cool her fingers I like that it’s
25:09
a really good way when I pipe my wife on
25:11
stage because I don’t have them right
25:13
everyone says well that’s why that’s why
25:16
that’s not married Madeleine yeah yeah
25:19
who is this woman he’s biting but yeah
25:22
but it’s it’s incredible he is quite
25:25
possibly going to end up being because
25:29
this is actually an a trend towards him
25:31
he’s not trilling off he’s actually been
25:33
picking up steam as the other candidates
25:36
have have you know kind of trailed off
25:38
he’s actually starting to pick up steam
25:40
he’s getting that Jo mentum as I called
25:42
it before and he’s uh I knew you missed
25:46
that oh he he’s you know he’s got that
25:48
Jo mentum going and coming out of South
25:52
Carolina with it you know 17%
25:57
you know if he comes out of there with
25:59
double-digit gains having won the other
26:01
three it’s over having won New Hampshire
26:03
where Bernie and and and and and Liz are
26:06
in the the neighboring neighboring
26:07
states of Massachusetts and Vermont it’s
26:10
over there’s no way he’s not gonna then
26:12
you know carry Super Tuesday and become
26:14
the nominee meaning that the Republicans
26:17
and Democrats will be putting up some of
26:19
the absolute he did can especially Joe
26:24
Biden who is uniquely hated by the left
26:27
outside of the other candidates so you
26:31
know Matt the only thing really that
26:33
could possibly stop Joe or the only
26:37
thing that um you know that could
26:39
possibly stop Joe is if his you know his
26:42
other opponents actually stopped
26:45
fighting and and
26:46
and you know and and started working
26:48
together but the only thing that could
26:50
keep Joe from getting more momentum or
26:52
the only thing that could allow Joe to
26:54
get more momentum is if its opponent
26:56
just started picking fights with each
26:59
other well oddly enough just the other
27:04
day the Elizabeth Warren camp accused
27:07
Bernie Sanders of saying a woman can’t
27:09
win the presidency at an event where she
27:13
announced her campaign
27:15
Bernie denies this and says that staff
27:20
members who weren’t even at the event
27:21
shouldn’t be spreading these vicious
27:22
lies and he’s always supported women in
27:24
politics yeah this is Bernie sandwich
27:29
issued here picture here telling Liz
27:31
Warren dad that she’ll never be
27:33
president now of course it gets worse
27:35
Matt the following day Liz Warren
27:37
tweeted I’m also incredibly disappointed
27:39
to report that in 2011 prior to my
27:41
Senate campaign Bernie Sanders told me
27:43
during a private meeting that a native
27:44
american could never win in the state of
27:47
massachusetts then he punched me in the
27:49
mouth who called me a bitch
27:51
it got it’s getting bad Matt it’s
27:54
getting bad it’s getting robbed is it is
27:56
getting bad I we we know that many of
28:00
you out there watch us for Demi gedan
28:04
and yeah the guys that we are not
28:06
bringing you dem again and whatever
28:08
number work yes but we got tired of
28:13
facing to Kerma bans on social media
28:16
yeah so there was really no way for us
28:20
to do it without proper marketing right
28:27
cuz we’d only be able to do it on float
28:29
we’d only be able to do it on float
28:30
right and we did not plan ahead for this
28:33
one because both of us have had a lot of
28:35
stuff going on
28:35
yeah always running for vice president
28:38
I’m running for vice president vice
28:40
president of the United States this
28:43
makes it official someone printed this
28:45
on something and I was proudly walking
28:50
around the convention but more on that
28:51
later Matt this is a news program this
28:54
is a news
28:59
I think that’s the first time anybody
29:03
has ever referred to us as in news as a
29:05
news program austere August reporting
29:08
program here but uh actually but I’m the
29:12
news now kind of I’m making news you are
29:17
making news I am how could I not being a
29:21
twenty twenty vice presidential
29:23
candidate not be making news Matt by the
29:25
way I’d like to apologize for the fact
29:27
that there’s a little bit of might
29:28
notice little shuffle there yellow bell
29:30
jiggle there I am set up in my cousin’s
29:34
house and I’m Elena and we could I did
29:37
not bring all my equipment because I’m
29:39
very smart and so I have to have my
29:42
webcam instead of on the mount that I
29:44
usually have it on I have it on my
29:45
laptop and so when I move the laptop
29:48
moves and this moves but I’m very
29:49
comfortable well that’s good I’ve
29:51
literally the entire time and waiting to
29:53
say to you spike do you have any fries
29:56
to go with that shake ooh I do I’m I’m
30:00
wiggling and a jigglin commence to
30:02
jiggling so completely lost track of
30:06
what we’re doing oh yeah so let’s just
30:09
break down this Liz Warren Bernie
30:12
Sanders thing for a second sure Bernie
30:14
Sanders has a record he’s a politician
30:16
he’s certainly been caught lying he is a
30:19
record of being an unrepentant socialist
30:21
which now is somewhat popular but for
30:25
the first thirty years he’s been doing
30:26
it was not popular it was decided under
30:29
40 years was decidedly unpopular and did
30:34
not make him any friends and he did that
30:39
knowing that you know it the vast
30:43
majority of Americans would hate him Liz
30:47
Warren has a history of lying about lots
30:52
of things everything her race her
30:55
heritage her background where her
30:59
children go to school where her children
31:01
go to school she pretends that she just
31:05
day drinks in her kitchen to her
31:07
husband’s
31:07
absolute horror no I don’t want a beer
31:12
it’s my
31:13
listen hey honey I’m glad you’re here in
31:16
our kitchen my hut as my husband and
31:19
says would you like a beer and it’s like
31:22
no no it’s brunch time and and it’s
31:28
brunch time I get it but that was
31:30
breakfast that wasn’t brunch yeah you
31:31
don’t drink beer at breakfast no you
31:35
wait you wait until brunch for that
31:37
that’s that’s the that’s the as as Liz
31:42
would say that’s the that’s the native
31:44
way she’d never say that but the you
31:47
know she’s she’s been caught lying so
31:49
many times is it possible that he said
31:52
this however many months ago
31:56
sure is there any particular reason that
32:00
she would wait to bring it up now right
32:04
now for the Iowa primaries so we’re
32:11
gonna get into the impeachment
32:12
everything going on a little bit later
32:14
but somebody actually brought up an
32:16
interesting point we’re coming into the
32:20
Iowa primaries okay February 3rd I think
32:26
is one there that’s a good right the
32:30
Iowa primary I believe is February 3rd
32:32
now of the people who are on stage
32:36
tonight
32:38
you’ve got Liz Warren Bernie Sanders Amy
32:42
Klobuchar I think those are the only
32:48
three that are still sitting senators
32:51
okay yeah yeah yeah this Cory’s gone and
32:56
Kamala’s going right so half of the
33:01
field is going to be back in DC for the
33:05
impeachment trial and they cannot leave
33:07
until the impeachment trial is over
33:10
right somebody brought up a point and
33:14
I’m not going to say that this is what
33:15
happened or this is what is happening
33:18
okay it’s an interesting point mm-hmm
33:21
why would Nancy Pelosi have waited until
33:26
three weeks before the Iowa caucus to
33:31
give the impeachment articles of
33:35
impeachment to the Senate well you know
33:39
my theory Matt is that Nancy Pelosi
33:42
wants Donald Trump to get reelected true
33:46
others have the theory that she wants
33:49
Biden to be the nominee which is another
33:53
way of saying that she wants Donald
33:55
Trump to get reelected I don’t think it
33:57
really matters which one gets nominated
33:58
you know what that’s probably true I I
34:01
will say this I think I think Sanders or
34:07
Buddha judge might give him a run for
34:08
his money Joe Biden completely cancels
34:11
out almost every accusation they have
34:13
against Trump you know there’s a Buddha
34:16
judge won’t give him a run for his money
34:18
because he will not get the black top
34:22
that’s pot well unless he had a black VP
34:26
but the bottom line first of all let’s
34:29
be clear vermin supreme and I are
34:32
getting elected so it doesn’t really
34:33
matter what these people are gonna do I
34:35
mean let’s just back up for a second and
34:36
knowledge the fact that what the what
34:39
these these third party people do is
34:41
kind of irrelevant what we talk about it
34:45
on the news because you know this is a
34:46
news program but no stop laughing at
34:52
that I’m gonna just keep saying it
34:54
because I like the engagement we’re
34:55
getting from it so every time I say it
34:58
our viewership goes up so I’m definitely
34:59
gonna keep saying that we are in fact
35:01
know it went down just now it’s a news
35:03
Pertwee aware but we are a news program
35:04
um yeah it’s it I’m not sure what Bill
35:10
Clinton hand for that oh I’ve been doing
35:12
this all the last two weeks we see a lot
35:18
of pictures out there of me like we’re
35:20
reputable news station we are we do the
35:24
news here we’re a news program we’re so
35:27
yeah I don’t know what clothes he’s
35:29
thinking I don’t know what Warren’s
35:30
thinking I know that all of this helps
35:32
Joe Biden and therefore Trump and
35:35
therefore vermin supreme
35:38
speaking of helping
35:39
and supreme in Iran that wasn’t a good
35:45
Segway last Wednesday Donald Trump took
35:48
to the airwaves and the microphones and
35:51
stated that he has decided that Iran’s
35:54
missile attack on Iraqi bases where US
35:57
troops were stationed was their attempt
36:01
to de-escalate the situation and that
36:03
there would be no retaliation and one of
36:06
us called that right yeah that’d be me
36:09
yep you called that Matt Matt right 100%
36:12
accurate and my predictions for going
36:17
tour proving once again that if you want
36:23
to know what’s going to happen in a week
36:24
or to watch this show we are not only a
36:29
news program we are also a pug Gnostic
36:32
ation program right we’re the
36:34
Nostradamus of news the Nostradamus the
36:38
Nostradamus of news programs of news
36:41
programs yep so since then there have
36:44
been no more attacks from either from
36:46
either nation Matt that’s true from
36:49
either nation of course there is always
36:54
that okay so you see our government may
37:02
have been a little less than honest to
37:05
us about the so-called imminent threat
37:09
no my god now what what did they do now
37:12
Matt so it appears as though based on
37:22
the words of former National Security
37:23
Council under george w bush william
37:26
Imboden the strike was technically
37:28
legally covered under war on terror laws
37:32
but he also said that the president had
37:35
a casual relationship with the truth fun
37:39
fact the authorization that is being
37:42
used was originally authorized in 2001
37:45
under the authorization of use of
37:47
military force which was voted for by a
37:51
few people including
37:53
someone named lincoln chafee and it
37:55
hopefully we never hear from him again
38:00
Matt defense secretary Mike Esper told
38:06
CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday they
38:09
didn’t see specific intelligence
38:11
pointing to an imminent threat to four
38:14
embassies while adding that he agreed
38:16
with Trump in the sense that his
38:18
expectation was they were going to go
38:20
after our embassies that’s different
38:25
from an imminent threat that is
38:27
different than an imminent threat yeah
38:31
now what they’re saying is very true
38:35
Mike Pompeo came out also I thought I’d
38:39
put that in the notes but Mike Pompeo
38:40
came out also and he stated just look at
38:43
what they were doing to the embassies in
38:46
Baghdad that shows that they were going
38:47
to do something eminent but it has come
38:49
out that no there was no imminent threat
38:53
there was potential threats there was
38:55
not imminent threats and oh what’s that
39:00
other thing
39:03
Trump ordered the assassination 7 months
39:06
ago
39:07
oh so this had nothing to do with an
39:12
imminent threat no in fact what it looks
39:15
like is that the assassination was
39:17
ordered several months ago after it was
39:20
carried out after it was carried out I
39:23
believe I’m not a hundred percent sure
39:24
on this but I believe Mike Pompeo was
39:26
the first person to use the terms
39:28
eminent threat and then it became was
39:33
this retaliation for the embassy in
39:36
Baghdad was this because of an imminent
39:38
threat and where they made the mistake
39:40
was saying imminent
39:42
was this an imminent threat or why did
39:47
you order at seven months ago and now
39:49
you’re using these as your excuses well
39:52
and that’s what it sounds like they
39:53
wanted this done as recently as six
39:55
seven months ago with the idea that the
39:57
first opportunity the first pretext they
39:59
could come up with it to actually do it
40:01
not just do it out of nowhere they would
40:03
do that so they did that
40:05
and then I ran not wanting to start a
40:09
whole you know war did their government
40:14
launched you know a handful of missiles
40:17
at what appeared to be you know as empty
40:22
a target as they could find Trump took
40:24
that as them not wanting to go any
40:25
further and now thankfully it looks like
40:27
more likely we’re not gonna be going to
40:29
war so he was able to pull off his
40:31
attack of killing a foreign military
40:33
leader and not trigger a broader
40:35
military conflict so that’s a good thing
40:38
and it’s especially good for Trump
40:41
because odds are since he was able to do
40:43
this he’s probably not gonna get any
40:45
negative political feedback from any
40:48
more than he would for doing anything I
40:50
mean just gonna be people that are gonna
40:52
have negative feedback to anything he
40:53
does so true that’s good this it’s not
40:56
this isn’t gonna be oh you did like you
40:58
can’t use this against him in the
41:00
election during the camp right oh you
41:03
killed the number two guy that we’ve all
41:07
kind of been calling a terrorist you you
41:10
can’t you killed that guy and you didn’t
41:12
get us into war I just use it right and
41:16
that’s the thing because both the
41:17
American and Democratic sides have
41:19
bought into the bedrock of American
41:22
politics political culture which is that
41:25
American troops can go anywhere on earth
41:28
at any time and kill anyone they want
41:31
even non-combatants even children and if
41:36
anyone even tries to fight back so that
41:39
they don’t get killed they get labeled a
41:42
terrorist now obviously Soleimani was a
41:44
bad guy – but he’s not what we but
41:47
ultimately he was engaging in
41:48
essentially preemptive defensive action
41:52
against a country that is occupying
41:55
almost every country they bought her and
41:57
also overthrew their government in 1953
42:02
and shot down one of their civilian
42:04
airplanes in 1988 and has just in
42:07
general been doing everything they can
42:09
to try to destabilize the Iranian
42:11
government in the Iranian economy ever
42:13
since then with sanctions and
42:15
anything else so this is not something
42:16
that happened in a vacuum but because
42:18
the Democrats are every bit as much a
42:20
part of that as the Republicans are it’s
42:22
hard for them to now say oh whoa you
42:25
shouldn’t have done that
42:26
now for libertarians we can say hey told
42:30
you so we should have never been there
42:32
the best thing we can do is leave
42:34
unfortunately that is not the popular
42:38
opinion the popular opinion is that the
42:41
u.s. troops can go anywhere kill anyone
42:44
and no one’s allowed to fight back it’s
42:47
similar to how a lot of people think
42:48
about the police the police can go
42:49
anywhere do whatever they want anyone
42:51
and if anyone resists that they were a
42:53
criminal and deserve whatever they get
42:55
Team America some would call it boot
42:58
licking I certainly wouldn’t do that cuz
42:59
that’s not that’s a divisive statement
43:02
and I don’t make divisive statements
43:04
like that
43:05
we’re divisive ones anybody who believes
43:08
that has not watched enough of our show
43:10
Matt just to drive home how non divisive
43:14
we were during the was it just it was
43:18
right after the show right I can’t like
43:20
it may have been happening it may have
43:22
happened while we were on the airs so
43:24
sometime last Tuesday evening a
43:27
Ukrainian civilian flight crashed in
43:30
Iran originally that’s what we were told
43:32
they crashed in Iran of course it seemed
43:34
pretty suspicious that a Ukrainian
43:36
flight would just crash in Iran most of
43:39
the passengers were Iranian and of
43:42
course this is a you know just to show
43:43
that we’re not Pro Iranian government we
43:45
aren’t pro any government all
43:47
governments live this is a perfect
43:49
example of that
43:50
it did not crash Iran shot it down as it
43:54
was flying from their Airport from the I
43:57
guess Tehran Airport showing just how on
44:01
edge the Iranian government was they
44:04
were waiting for anything to fly from
44:06
the sky and if it didn’t immediately
44:09
line up with whatever they thought was
44:11
supposed to be there they shot it down
44:12
without question and unfortunately that
44:15
ended up being a Ukrainian flight that
44:19
got shot down so yep for a growing
44:24
number of Iran’s critics the events have
44:28
revealed a gun
44:28
that is incapable of following through
44:30
on its incendiary rhetoric and willing
44:33
to mislead its own people about a
44:35
national tragedy in order to avoid
44:37
embarrassment now people are out
44:41
protesting in the streets students
44:47
chanting they are lying that our enemy
44:51
is America our enemy is right here now
44:53
probably about 50% right they are and
44:57
it’s actually an interesting thing so
44:59
you have protesters in the state saying
45:02
no war with Iran you have students in
45:06
the streets in Iran saying no war with
45:08
America and yet you have two governments
45:11
that are in this constant level of
45:12
brinksmanship and I would argue that the
45:14
US government is the is largely the
45:17
aggressor but regardless you have two
45:19
governments that are in this constant
45:21
state of war now I am an anarchist for
45:25
weeks
45:25
I don’t know last time I said that um
45:27
it’s Python it has been a while I I know
45:31
you’re a libertarian running for vice
45:33
president so you like you’ve toned down
45:35
on I’m an anarchist well I am in Anarchy
45:37
I’m running as an anarchist I just don’t
45:38
say it as much because you would time it
45:41
this is a perfect example of what
45:44
happens with governments in charge you
45:46
have two governments that are creating
45:48
war and creating sanctions and creating
45:50
brinksmanship and all of this different
45:52
stuff when the actual people who live in
45:55
the two countries for the most part
45:57
really don’t have any beef with each
46:00
other even the the the the people over
46:02
here who are bloodthirsty for war with
46:04
Iran at the end of the day they’re upset
46:06
that people are killing US troops well
46:08
if the US troops weren’t there they
46:09
wouldn’t be getting killed and we can
46:11
just go there and visit and they could
46:13
come and visit
46:14
we could have trade with each other and
46:17
all be doing much better and not be
46:20
getting robbed to pay for militaries to
46:22
fight each other for no real good reason
46:24
so this is a perfect example of that and
46:26
I think the students that are protesting
46:27
over there are right because someone
46:29
asked me recently you know who do I
46:30
think’s right the American protesters or
46:32
the Iranian protesters and I said
46:34
ultimately they’re both protesting the
46:36
same thing they’re government they’re
46:38
both right government sucks right so I
46:41
agree with both of them
46:42
and I guess members of the club Preston
46:45
Turan have quit on live TV apologizing
46:48
for lying to the viewers for all these
46:50
years
46:50
will that be great they did that here
46:51
Matt could you imagine like you get
46:54
Tucker Carlson in the middle of a show
46:56
and he’s up in there and he’s staring at
46:59
you all Tucker Carlson II would
47:02
dumbfounded just like and I have to be
47:09
honest we’ve been lying to you I’m out
47:11
and he gets up and go wait
47:14
that would be great I’d like to see a
47:16
lot of that unfortunately they get paid
47:17
a lot more here they get paid a lot yeah
47:20
they get paid a lot and they’re only
47:22
told what to say by the people who give
47:25
them money as opposed to their
47:27
government directly by the government
47:28
yeah so yeah like it is right now what’s
47:36
going on in Iran is equally as engaging
47:40
as what’s happening in Hong Kong yeah
47:46
absolutely
47:47
absolutely Iran having a sordid history
47:52
with protesters not the best of
47:56
histories right with protesters not
47:59
pleased with these protests so our
48:03
president the guy who lied about
48:05
imminent threats took to Twitter as he
48:08
does in Persian I just can’t even
48:11
imagine what that says do we know what
48:17
that it is down at the bottom oh I
48:19
thought that was a completely different
48:20
tweet I think that’s what it is down at
48:22
the bottom
48:23
oh the bearded truth made these I’m not
48:26
100% sure I think so he said assuming
48:30
that’s the same thing it says national
48:31
security advisor suggested today that
48:34
sanctions and protests have Moran choked
48:36
off will force them to negotiate
48:38
actually I couldn’t care less if they
48:40
negotiate will be totally up to them but
48:42
no nuclear weapons and don’t kill your
48:44
protesters so the best way to help
48:45
protesters is to shut off their ability
48:48
to sell things or to buy things and hurt
48:53
them economically right
48:56
that’ll show him I’ll show him
49:00
I’ll show I just love that he did it in
49:02
late does Donald Trump think his tweets
49:06
are getting through to Iran what in
49:09
Farsi no no I strongly doubt isn’t
49:12
Twitter one of the things that isn’t
49:13
even allowed in Iran like Iran has like
49:17
a ton of social media that isn’t even
49:19
I’d I would imagine that they have a lot
49:21
of blocks on what can be I think they
49:23
have Twitter but I think they have a lot
49:24
of blocks on what can be seen and I’m
49:26
assuming that any major leader yeah in
49:30
America is blocked both Facebook and
49:33
Twitter have been blocked since well
49:37
Twitter’s been blocked since oh nine and
49:40
at least since 2013 Twitter and Facebook
49:44
have been blocked there was a brief
49:46
period where it it went back online due
49:48
to a technical glitch but it’s been it’s
49:51
been back offline ever since so yeah
49:55
there’s no there’s no you know one is
50:03
seeing this in Farsi in in Iran great so
50:11
that was that was for American
50:13
consumption but but most importantly we
50:20
are not in any new war and we told you
50:24
that here yeah we told you that was not
50:28
going to happen
50:35
we’re not gonna be in a new war we’re
50:36
not gonna be in a new war first of all
50:38
here’s here’s a big reason why we’re not
50:40
going to go to war in Iran or with Iran
50:42
or however anyone wants to say it Iran
50:46
actually would have a decent shot
50:48
fighting back would they lose sure yeah
50:52
would it be like the invasion of Iran or
50:55
Afghanistan where you know a few hundred
50:57
or a few dozen soldier US troops died in
51:00
the in the praten you know Iran has a
51:03
much more developed military and they
51:08
also would get support from the Russian
51:10
and Chinese government’s if it came to
51:12
that so this is not the US does not want
51:17
war with Iran and and if and when Iran
51:20
develops nukes then things will change
51:22
quite a bit
51:23
because then they’ll actually have to
51:28
negotiate with Iran which is why
51:29
personally I think it’s better the more
51:34
countries have nuclear weapons which
51:36
seems counterintuitive but it’s in the
51:38
similar strain with people having guns
51:41
the more people have guns the more
51:43
people are less likely to start
51:44
something with someone because they
51:45
might have a gun they don’t want to get
51:47
shot so the same logic on a different
51:50
scale applies here no one really wants
51:52
to die in a nuclear holocaust the more
51:56
countries have nukes the more people
51:58
back off the reason we had a cold war
52:00
the reason World War three was largely a
52:02
cold war and not a hot war like World
52:04
War two and World War one where tens of
52:07
millions of people died was because the
52:09
two main antagonists had nukes if only
52:14
one of them had had nukes World War
52:16
three would have had been billions of
52:18
people dead but because two of them had
52:21
nukes on opposing sides the numbers were
52:24
markedly lower even though it went on
52:26
far longer and now we’re in World War
52:29
four which is the never ending war
52:32
against small low-power country
52:37
governments and you know third party
52:40
terror groups and things like that
52:42
where the numbers are not great but that
52:46
the body counts aren’t great but
52:48
better at them they’ve been in the past
52:50
once everyone has nukes it goes even
52:53
lower because now no one wants to fight
52:56
or even have the potential of a fight
52:59
you have countries that have hotlines
53:00
with each other even though they’re
53:02
actively in in you know threats of war
53:05
against each other they have hotlines
53:07
with each other just to make sure there
53:09
aren’t any misunderstandings in case
53:10
something accidently pops off that’s how
53:12
much people don’t want to fight so that
53:15
is why plank number 3 of the spike Cohen
53:18
vermin supreme verbal agreement for an
53:21
even better America is legalization of
53:23
recreational plutonium
53:28
so speaking of impeachment Oh before we
53:33
do impeachment guys we know that every
53:35
week we have the personal injury
53:37
attorney Chris Reynolds attorney at law
53:39

54:37

54:40
we are against sex with animals I just
54:43
want to underscore that says Matt
54:47
speaking of the peach woman’s are
54:48
animals well a human’s having sex with
54:52
animals animals having sex with animals
54:53
I mean some wet beds right humans are
54:56
animals sex with non-human animals there
55:00
you go human nonhumans
55:02
we prefer the species you know call this
55:04
old-fashioned cutter not in the interest
55:08
species call us bigots but uh me
55:12
personally I like my sex to remain
55:14
within the species you know what I mean
55:17
I think you do I think you do by the way
55:21
this is wrong I’m not muddy Beach South
55:23
Carolina I’m actually in mud Atlanta you
55:26
are in mud lanta you are in mud lanta
55:30
what my virgin so speaking of
55:35
impeachment the house will vote tomorrow
55:41
to send Trump impeachment articles
55:43
descendent which is a very weird
55:44
sentence to say it’s just a weird site
55:48
yeah breakdown what that means Matt so
55:53
when I read that I was very confused
55:56
because I kind of figured that’s what
55:58
the entire impeachment process was what
56:00
would think one would think but the vote
56:04
is on whether or not to send the Artic
56:06
is whether or not to send the articles
56:08
and to a point impeachment managers now
56:13
the impeachment managers at first I was
56:17
like are these people who are just gonna
56:18
sit there and watch the trial and be
56:19
like no no you’re like a bunch of
56:21
killing them wrong yeah like could you
56:24
imagine Eric’s wall well sitting there
56:26
in the body with a notebook and he’s
56:30
like excuse me Ted this is not how you
56:35
do it yeah excuse me you guys are not
56:39
doing it right right but no
56:44
congressional rules apply specify the
56:47
managers impeachment managers are
56:50
members of the House whose roles are
56:53
similar to prosecutors are tasked with
56:55
presenting the case for impeachment to
56:57
the Senate now my question is there are
57:02
many a people who are in the house who
57:08
may be called to testify a dilution of
57:12
the managers possibly
57:14
now would the managers be would that
57:20
make it so they would not be able to
57:22
testify because they are part of the
57:24
defense prosecuting team what it meant
57:28
is this even something that’s I mean I
57:30
know they make up the rules every time
57:32
they do an impeachment because it
57:33
doesn’t really get specific on how it
57:34
works but is the is their pride on’t
57:37
know if you know this is there precedent
57:38
to this about having managers first of
57:40
all whoa whoa oh there is okay there is
57:43
precedent to that okay okay okay I’m not
57:45
so it says congressional rules apply the
57:47
managers and I don’t know if that is
57:50
something that came with the Bill
57:52
Clinton or the Andrew Johnson
57:54
okay but yeah so there is a present that
57:59
case for impeachment okay so guys just
58:02
to back up a little bit if you’ll recall
58:07
the House voted to impeach Donald Trump
58:11
on one to two different two different
58:13
articles right yeah obstruction of
58:15
justice and obstruction of Congress and
58:18
something that’s the camera
58:19
yes something else and so they voted to
58:24
impeach him they were then supposed to
58:29
Nancy Pelosi was then supposed to submit
58:32
those articles to the Senate she has not
58:38
we’re not 100% sure why but she hasn’t
58:42
begging the question has Donald Trump
58:45
been impeached but not 100% certain it’s
58:49
kind of one of those depends on who you
58:50
ask type things right so now they’re
58:52
gonna vote on whether or not to submit
58:58
the thing that they already voted to do
59:02
which should have been submitted so this
59:07
is like if we all vote on whether to get
59:11
pizza or hot wings and everyone votes
59:14
for hot wings and then I come back a
59:18
month later and say okay let’s vote on
59:23
whether I call the hot wing place
59:27
that’s what this is and meanwhile
59:30
everybody’s just starving for hot wings
59:32
everyone’s just everyone just wants hot
59:34
wings and I’m like okay but but we need
59:36
hot wing managers but say but saying
59:38
like okay we already voted to do this
59:41
let’s vote again this again underscores
59:45
my theory that Nancy Pelosi wants Joe
59:52
Biden to be the nominee so that the two
59:54
worst possible nominees candidates are
59:56
the the candidates for the Republicans
59:58
and Democrats there for paving the way
60:00
for vermin supreme and twenty twenty
60:03
vice presidential candidates white Cohen
60:05
so to be your next president vice
60:09
president
60:09
so thanks Nancy so theoretically
60:13
tomorrow when they invoke on this they
60:17
could vote not to send the articles of
60:21
impeachment no that would be the worse
60:28
for this entire thing do you think that
60:31
will happen I don’t but I mean there I
60:32
mean there’s a chance there’s there is a
60:37
chance that could happen and that oh my
60:41
gosh can you imagine oh yeah
60:49
in granted that there’s a small chance
60:52
that happen it’s like they’re gonna vote
60:53
to send it like absolutely I can’t see
60:56
how they wouldn’t yeah they wouldn’t
60:57
please God if they didn’t I would love
61:02
for that to happen and we’re poor I mean
61:08
impeach Trump all the way and and and
61:11
pence and Pete’s everyone down to you
61:14
know the the guy who you know who licks
61:18
the envelopes whatever like but but just
61:22
the hilarity of that who or what if they
61:24
voted to submit it and she still didn’t
61:27
right and she’s still like yeah I know
61:29
you said to but I just don’t like I
61:32
don’t like who would be doing it right I
61:34
just don’t like the fact that the
61:36
Republicans aren’t going along with how
61:39
we want the
61:40
to be run that would I can’t decide
61:44
which would be funnier if they voted not
61:46
to do it or if they voted to do it and
61:49
she still and then she’d say okay now
61:54
I’m gonna call it vote on if you are
61:55
you’re sure so like when you’re on your
61:57
computer and you like go to delete
61:58
something and it says are you sure
61:59
they’re gonna this is actually that this
62:01
is the are you sure maybe like a second
62:04
one or like you know when it’s something
62:06
really like crucial and it’s like a
62:08
system memory thing and you have to
62:10
actually like right I agree and then do
62:13
this would be at a third thing where
62:15
they’d have to vote yet again if they
62:16
really meant fully understanding the
62:19
consequences that they really meant to
62:22
say yes please submit these and then she
62:25
still doesn’t do it Shane Ogden I’m
62:30
guessing came in a little late but she’s
62:31
waiting for the campaign to heat up so
62:33
that Sanders and Warren have to come off
62:34
the trail giving creepy Joe his turn as
62:37
the nominee and we did we discussed that
62:42
earlier in the show that is a
62:44
possibility that is a very strong
62:46
possibility that that is kind of what
62:48
her plan was yeah she’s gonna be holding
62:52
these people out so that was two of the
62:55
four frontrunners so that Joe who was
62:57
leading in the polls not just nationally
62:59
but in the first four primary states has
63:02
a clear field to lose to me in Berman
63:06
supreme right oh this is a news program
63:12
Shane you’re fine we don’t mind
63:14
repeating stuff we do yeah yeah yeah we
63:16
repeat ourselves all the time also
63:18
that’s all the time so another problem
63:21
Republicans in the Senate getting very
63:26
excited getting very excited about this
63:30
Mitch McConnell like he’s been he’s been
63:34
doing so much blow recently you can’t
63:35
even understand what he’s saying his his
63:41
his his uh his aggression flap comes out
63:46
quite a bit now he’d yeah he looks like
63:49
he looks like the dinosaur in Jurassic
63:52
Park
63:53
oh yeah yeah but just here but yeah
63:57
right just in the bottom of like a blow
63:59
frog right that would probably be a
64:01
better one yeah he’s like a bull front
64:07
right then I can’t even do it oh my god
64:10
how can you make air go into here I
64:13
can’t do it he he reminds me of the guy
64:17
who died because of gluttony and seven
64:19
when he gets all angsty but again just
64:23
here well yeah so that guy
64:25
right right right right here right right
64:29
Rand Paul tweeted recently that he would
64:32
force hunter Biden to testify which the
64:35
Democrats refused to have him come in on
64:36
the on the original House proceeding
64:41
impeachment proceedings in the house and
64:43
Ted Cruz is looking forward to calling
64:47
all of the witnesses just all of them
64:50
just everybody if you’ve ever talked
64:51
with anybody involved Ted Cruz is like
64:54
let’s bring them in let’s do this
64:56
the funny thing is I can’t tell if it
64:58
would be better for Republicans to just
65:01
kill this thing as soon as it came in
65:03
and be like look at all that mess just
65:05
for us to kill it or if it’s them in
65:07
their best interest to drag it out
65:10
endlessly and and and their but and and
65:14
and put as many witnesses they can
65:17
grandstand on to make it look as much of
65:20
a witch-hunt as they can or whatever and
65:22
just drag it on from you know months and
65:25
have you know basically have the Joe
65:28
Biden’s main competitors out of the race
65:30
dealing with this you know dealing with
65:32
the republican-led defense against this
65:37
impeachment to make it look like it was
65:38
all just a sham I I tend to think that’s
65:41
probably the better thing than to just
65:44
kill it right away right Matt I would
65:46
not yeah it definitely would not kill it
65:47
right away because if you kill it right
65:49
away
65:49
the optics are gonna be we went through
65:53
this entire impeachment proceedings
65:55
right and like we we took our time we
65:58
did it right blah blah blah and they
66:00
just killed it right it killed it
66:02
immediately they pull it up for a vote
66:04
and killed it
66:05
now if
66:07
you start calling all of the witnesses
66:10
right right it’s you they’re not gonna
66:13
be able to say they just did this to
66:14
kill it instead they’re like oh well no
66:16
now you’re rich hunting our people our
66:21
people some way to counter witch-hunt
66:23
yeah but yeah instead you’re gonna be if
66:28
either way the optics aren’t great but
66:31
the optics are so much better if you
66:33
actually call all of like John Bolton
66:36
needs to get called he has to be called
66:38
right and Trump did say that he would
66:42
block it that is funny
66:45
Trump said he would block it so but you
66:49
need to cut like call him her Biden
66:51
called a Adam Schiff call the
66:57
whistleblower eric Caramella or whatever
67:00
call all of them but also call everybody
67:05
else because I don’t think I’m pretty
67:10
certain that anybody watching our show
67:11
is pretty well-informed cuz we because
67:15
we’re a news program because we’re a
67:17
news program and every single
67:19
impeachment testimony that there was it
67:22
was did you witness the president doing
67:25
anything wrong no but I heard it from
67:27
so-and-so and so-and-so or I heard it
67:29
from other people who were there but
67:31
nobody who was there setting so call
67:35
everybody call everybody drag it out
67:40
that’s a great point I mean end result
67:42
doesn’t change you’re not gonna change
67:45
the mind of all the Republicans no
67:49
you’re not gonna change the mind of
67:50
Republicans or Democrats you’re not
67:52
going to do any of that you’re really
67:55
just going to present optics for that
67:57
slim slim group of people in the middle
68:00
who aren’t sure what to make of it Ian
68:02
what you’re also gonna do is hurt the
68:04
Democrats on an electoral level because
68:08
you’re taking out you know some of the
68:09
biggest competitors and clearing the way
68:11
for the one that has the least the
68:13
softest support Joe Biden I mean they
68:17
will be able to slam Biden endlessly
68:21
this stuff and we’ll see if it sticks I
68:23
do think he’ll be weaker I think that
68:25
he’s he’s tiring and I think that it you
68:29
know they’ll be able to spend the next
68:30
several months making this look like a
68:31
witch-hunt and further inoculating trump
68:33
to any kind of accusations now of course
68:36
the Supreme Cohen administration will
68:40
stop the congressional witch hunts by
68:42
actually hunting Congress with real
68:45
witches and that has always been that
68:48
has always been a promise of ours actual
68:51
witches
68:52
hunting in Congress with pitchforks so
69:01
no matter what I do think it’s best for
69:03
the Senate did you hack it out for
69:04
literally as long as you possibly can
69:08
yeah no I agree
69:10
yeah I agree and so it’s it’s it’s
69:14
assumed that the trial that the hearing
69:19
will start on Tuesday after the MLK jr.
69:22
weekend which fun fact up until per
69:27
month for most of my childhood I did not
69:29
know that MLK Day was a thing yeah cuz
69:36
the way up yeah growing up in Virginia
69:38
it wasn’t MLK Day well what oh god yeah
69:43
Lee Jackson King Day it was Lee Jackson
69:49
King Day and you were celebrating robert
69:52
e lee Stonewall Jackson and Martin
69:54
Luther King on the same day so I had no
69:58
idea up until I left the state as I said
70:04
somebody said it’s Martin Luther King
70:05
Day and I was like you mean Lee Jackson
70:06
King Day and they looked at me like I
70:07
was the devil what a pairing that is huh
70:11
but they did change that recently and
70:14
now Friday is Lee Jackson day and Monday
70:17
it’s Martin Luther King Day that would
70:20
be an interesting that’s quite a weekend
70:23
that is quite a weekend that is quite a
70:25
weekend and that’s quite a long weekend
70:27
there they should have a biker rally
70:29
there just to make it a little bit a
70:31
little bit less well swimming right gets
70:35
back to
70:35
in Charlottesville yeah exactly yeah
70:38
that’ll be unite – right – is on Friday
70:42
followed by a black lives matter picnic
70:45
on Monday oh yeah so Wow
70:51
so yeah so that is what has gone on
70:53
there yes and now it is time to talk
70:59
about nope not about that you talk about
71:06
the Bourbon spike 2020 campaign update
71:09
featuring me
71:11
there’s my thing 2020 vice presidential
71:16
candidate spike Cohen I’m not one of
71:18
these for Georgia to come I am I getting
71:23
a nametag in Georgia or am I just there
71:25
I can try to get you in a nametag mm-hmm
71:29
I can try to great name for anybody who
71:33
is in Georgia spike and I will both be
71:36
at the Georgia LP convention this
71:39
weekend
71:39
yep the Libertarian Party or LPGA but we
71:44
don’t call it that because then people
71:45
get confused or sued yeah the
71:49
Libertarian Party of Georgia convention
71:51
which this year is at it’s in
71:55
Douglasville Georgia at the the where is
72:04
it where is it this just says where it
72:08
is but I’d like to know where it is that
72:10
this just says what’s happening but it
72:12
actually say oh it’s at the douglasville
72:14
conference center in Douglasville
72:17
Georgia on the 18th and 19th there’s
72:21
also going to be a debate featuring the
72:25
different presidential candidates and
72:27
they’re gonna have a fun way of doing
72:29
that match so they have 13 presidential
72:31
candidates and rather than having 13
72:33
presidential candidates up there they’re
72:35
gonna give each of them a few minutes to
72:37
speak to the audience and then the
72:39
audience is gonna vote on the ones that
72:42
they want to see and the top six vote
72:44
getters are gonna be the ones who get to
72:48
actually debate
72:49
the other seven will not and so it’s a
72:55
it’s a good way there to clear out the
72:57
field so we’ll see whose feelings get
73:01
hurt on because most of them will not be
73:04
debating so that’s happening in Georgia
73:07
but I had a so campaign update for me I
73:10
had a very interesting weekend vermin
73:13
supreme won the New Hampshire vice
73:16
presidential primary or a president
73:20
preferential pole whatever it’s a
73:22
non-binding primary but it’s still a
73:24
primary in New Hampshire on Saturday and
73:27
I won of all the people that are still
73:30
running John Phillips jr. actually won
73:33
it but also on that weekend later that
73:36
that same day
73:37
Kim ruff and John Phillips announced
73:40
that they were suspending their campaign
73:42
and Kim announced that she was endorsing
73:45
me for vice president so I am now
73:50
essentially running the only person
73:53
running for VP making me I assume the
73:58
presumptive frontrunner for nominee
74:02
which is not what I expected to happen
74:04
by January that would be a little harder
74:08
you know in a year and a half of doing
74:12
muddied waters media my fellow Americans
74:15
Muddy Waters media and my waters of
74:17
freedom we’ve taken it to new new steps
74:21
like you’ve hit new at your friends for
74:23
anybody who’s ever been on this show I’m
74:26
definitely I’m definitely an
74:29
overachiever right now things are
74:31
happening very very quickly the woman
74:36
who was by many measures the possibly
74:39
the front-runner are definitely one of
74:40
the top two or three competitors dropped
74:43
out and said she’d like me to be the
74:45
vice president we even had a handoff
74:47
ceremony where she handed off tyler
74:50
smith who was one of her directors to be
74:54
my campaign manager because now i have a
74:57
campaign manager because this is a
74:59
serious thing
75:01
and I am end up taking bill weld spot
75:06
from 2016 you’ll your name will be
75:15
mentioned in such high regard this pill
75:18
belt at Joan Jorgensen and judge Jim
75:22
Gray and Spike Collins and spike Cohen
75:29
very interesting things happening much
75:32
more quickly than I anticipated so we
75:34
will see how things go but I am
75:37
increasingly becoming the consensus
75:39
candidate across the board across the
75:42
board across the board consensus
75:44
candidate so oh so I got to meet Lincoln
75:50
Chaffey oh yeah and so for those who
75:53
don’t know how is he his campaign
75:59
manager wouldn’t let me near him to
76:02
answer that and it happened after this
76:04
speech I’m about to show you so I gave
76:07
the speech and then he came over after
76:11
he gave his speech to talk to me and
76:15
Kyle labore where we informed him what
76:17
shall not be infringed ment and he
76:21
responded by saying he didn’t like the
76:24
questions that Kennedy was answering him
76:26
which apparently is what shall not be
76:28
infringed means to him for anybody who
76:30
doesn’t know what that is in reference
76:32
to yes because not everybody watches Fox
76:34
Business or catches every video that
76:36
goes across our feet right lincoln
76:40
Chafee showed up on Kennedy on Fox
76:43
Business and Kennedy is for all intents
76:47
and purposes is pretty staunch
76:49
libertarian yeah she’s pretty straight
76:50
at me I wouldn’t call her a it’s not a
76:52
radical but she’s definitely about as
76:54
libertarian is cable news will allow
76:55
yeah right and she asked him a series of
77:01
yes/no questions yeah the first one was
77:05
should all drugs be legal
77:08
or adults yeah I believe that was how
77:11
she said something like that yeah yeah
77:13
he said no no and she went okay and then
77:17
she said should sex be legal should all
77:22
sex be legal between two consenting
77:23
adults even if money is being exchanged
77:25
and he said yes he did say yes to that
77:27
yes say yes to that beating Joe
77:29
Jorgenson yet sure I mean he already
77:34
said no to the drugs so I mean I’m not
77:35
right right right yeah no it’s downhill
77:37
and it continues to go downhill after
77:39
that and then I think there was another
77:41
question that I don’t remember and then
77:43
she asked but she asked us should would
77:46
you agree with cutting taxes by at least
77:48
50%
77:49
and he said and he said only if we were
77:52
also cut spending okay okay yeah okay
77:57
sure sure and then she said should
78:00
people have a right to carry ar-15s to
78:03
which he’d never said yes and he never
78:05
said no he started talking about Iraq
78:09
and hemming and hawing literally hemming
78:11
and hawing he literally went well that
78:13
[Music]
78:19
[Music]
78:22
yeah he the issues of today aren’t as
78:25
important you know we’ve got people
78:26
dying in Iraq and hmm it was not a good
78:34
look
78:34
it was not for the Libertarian Party
78:39
presidential nominee the libertarian
78:41
party platform is that there should not
78:44
be any restrictions on firearms
78:46
ownership period or on any arms
78:49
ownership it is not up to the government
78:50
to decide what kind of weapons we can
78:52
have it’s also the platform that all
78:55
drugs should be legal and that it’s none
78:58
of the government’s business what
78:59
consenting adults choose to put in their
79:01
bodies so right off the bat he’s failing
79:03
on some of the major stuff there we will
79:05
see moving forward of course you voted
79:06
for the Patriot Act II voted for
79:08
expanding Medicare and Medicaid he voted
79:11
for No Child Left Behind he voted even
79:15
though he says he did vote against the
79:16
war in Iraq the only Republican in the
79:19
Senate to do so but then he voted for
79:22
every
79:22
omnibus that funded it and he voted for
79:25
the authorization of use of military
79:27
force which was actually the binding
79:29
justification that the President had to
79:31
start the war in Iraq the the vote to
79:34
authorize it was a non non-binding vote
79:37
and so he had already authorized it he
79:42
voted for the warrantless NSA wireless
79:44
or the warrantless NSA surveillance
79:46
program that Edward Snowden apprised us
79:50
to say yeah so I gave this speech I was
79:56
introduced by the lovely Kim ruff and
79:59
this is the speech that I gave oh and
80:02
and so just put it in perspective if
80:04
you’re looking lincoln Chafee is off to
80:07
my left you don’t actually see him but
80:11
you’ll see me looking at
80:12
[Music]
80:37
now we have my community co-owner of
81:39
muddy waters media the co-host and the
81:43
most of my fellow Americans and in the
81:46
last two years of doing two weekly live
81:49
for eternity podcast I look two things
81:51
one how to talk to our people live right
81:54
now
81:54
and two how to spread the message of
81:57
Liberty to Republic that is often
82:01
freedom freedom
82:02
now the do monthly or either holding the
82:05
Republic rats have really overplayed
82:08
their hands in this cycle they are about
82:10
to present the two most terrific
82:12
candidates in recent memory
82:14
Donald Trump and whichever one Democrats
82:18
it’s combination so we know from the
82:23
last elections
82:24
that’s somewhere around 46 percent of
82:27
eligible voters did not vote if they’re
82:31
non vote that counted none of the above
82:33
would’ve won in a landslide in every
82:36
single state and a minimum of that group
82:40
4 percent of voters of those who voted
82:42
Republican or Democrat a lot of it is
82:44
only their nose into voting for
82:46
whichever candidacy you know less toxic
82:50
to them so we know we have the chip
82:54
stack against US President to the
82:56
Congress to the FEC down to the state
82:59
election boards to the fish number that
83:02
presidential debates the mainstream
83:05
media we know that this system is set up
83:08
to shut us out as much as humanly
83:11
possible this system is a jungle so what
83:16
we did last time on party as Merman
83:20
Supremes running mate I could ask next
83:23
revolving to questions from our putting
83:25
great wait a minute
83:27
number one what are you doing and number
83:32
two why the hell are so many people
83:35
joining you in doing this well the into
83:39
the back and the reason why I determine
83:41
is the best thing for us is very simple
83:43
we are capturing the public’s
83:45
imagination capturing and presenting
83:52
them with the libertarian message a
83:54
message of freedom and liberty
83:56
non-aggression and of self-ownership
84:00
now I want to tell you
84:05
this intensity was just at the in
84:09
Weakland college convention where she
84:12
was speaking alongside however they
84:16
presidential candidates he was not only
84:19
the only man returning invited he was
84:21
the only third party candidate invited
84:23
when I was here was the democratic
84:25
values her diary was there he was also
84:27
interviewed yesterday on Insider
84:29
magazine wrote asking reach of 80
84:31
million followers now focus all the
84:34
attention in the world is great here we
84:36
go but it’s not enough
84:38
what is the point of going on by
84:41
domestic kennedy on fox business if
84:43
you’re going to go there to say that
84:45
you’re not going in the drug war or even
84:48
breach to say whether America
84:53
[Applause]
84:59
as they they’re often that means the
85:02
party look like jewelry when Fermi get
85:07
people’s attention he captures their
85:09
imagination with his well-known satire
85:12
and then he actually starts spreading
85:14
the libertarian message to them he takes
85:17
that opportunity to give them the most
85:19
empathetic and most powerful message the
85:21
libertarian message you own yourself no
85:24
one has the right of our view your life
85:27
your rights for your property and
85:30
assignments anyone who drives I’m also
85:35
trying to be my park but with on my
85:37
shows and on talking on radio on the
85:42
podcast and I’ll spend even people in
85:44
person at own world who cannot mention
85:46
become the pavement or something no set
85:49
up by a separate album a nice rent the
85:51
Ritter he is the vice chair of the
85:54
Libertarian Party North Carolina
85:55
remember his name because people were
85:58
like end up being the chair of the party
86:00
here absolute Superman
86:06
that maybe is oriental he came up with
86:09
this idea called accountant David what
86:11
palpation is is and we started adhering
86:14
to North Carolina we go into some of the
86:16
poorest and most marginalized
86:18
communities in this country we knock on
86:21
their doors and we she’ll be getting our
86:24
message the one care investments an
86:26
unvarnished messer of freedom David was
86:29
there as well when we went this was more
86:31
about proof of concept this time around
86:33
we’re really sure if it would work we
86:35
had about 15 20 people and we know what
86:37
it work people open their doors for us
86:40
when they be the least bit worse out
86:42
there
86:42
their response was overwhelming now any
86:46
really receptive not only did they open
86:48
their doors they were often completing
86:50
our sentence turns out lo and behold we
86:53
didn’t have to tell them that they go
86:55
through this monument we didn’t have to
86:57
tell them that they would be better off
86:58
if they could be am free they were the
87:01
ones telling us that and it was an
87:03
amazing opportunity she was to be able
87:05
to share that and in that in that first
87:07
time was about 15 volunteers what was
87:10
essentially a proof of concept we signed
87:12
up 30 people to the Libertarian Party
87:14
North Carolina
87:17
[Applause]
87:21
these were overwhelmingly for probably
87:24
what taken 90% black neighborhoods and
87:28
overwhelmingly black neighborhoods these
87:29
were people that were telling us that
87:30
they were there helping those who voted
87:32
Democrat or they didn’t vote at all and
87:35
we changed the conversation in that
87:36
neighborhood it was so successful that
87:39
we are going to be doing many more
87:40
accountant even is going to become a
87:42
regular thing that immediately starting
87:44
in the Cheryl Islands and working with
87:46
and perfecting there and working with
87:48
affiliates and other states to spread it
87:50
around the entire country team supreme
87:53
and I are completely behind this and
87:55
will be doing this again starting with
87:57
Carolina’s going throughout the country
87:58
brent was so impressed with our
88:00
commitment to greenness that he actually
88:02
has decided to endorse our campaign and
88:04
join team supreme so we was definitely
88:06
leaning very much more about I mean he
88:11
needs something to catch our attention
88:12
bottom line we need someone to get
88:14
people’s attention
88:15
Burton supreme goes back in an
88:17
absolutely fundamental way he is getting
88:20
the youth and he’s getting unaffiliated
88:22
voters he’s the people that are the most
88:25
lately third party were to not vote at
88:28
all and so this is an unprecedented
88:31
opportunity for us to right back to
88:34
unknown high levels of both count
88:38
friends – play momentum verbal supreme
88:42
is my president and Revere’s award we
88:46
will build a coalition of the impressed
88:48
the outrage the disaffected
88:51
actitude disenfranchised and we will
88:53
ride it all the way to the White House
88:55
thank you so much
89:02
I’m running for vice-president you are
89:07
running for vice president you are
89:11

89:18
vice president so literally running for
89:21
vice president literally sweat literal
89:24
literal vice president literal spike
89:26
going we picked up some more endorsement

89:32
little spike president spike president
89:35

89:42
assistant to the manager so I’m not but
89:44
a vice president the device to the
89:46
president but uh yeah so we had a really
89:50
good reception in Tennessee picked up a
89:51
lot of a lot of endorsements there and
89:54
now had headed to to Georgia Maria and
89:59
Bo says the only thing I’ve seen from
90:02
vermin supreme is the satire so he’s a
90:04
hard sell to me I totally get that
90:05
here’s the breakdown Maria when it comes
90:07
to Berman we say vermin is the 80
90:09
percent satire 20 percent serious
90:12
candidate I’m the 80 percent serious 20
90:14
percent satire candidate and so we dove
90:16
tail well together here’s what has
90:17
happened Maria still last week
90:20
vermin was in something called I and I
90:22
mentioned it in that in that speech he
90:24
was at something called the New England
90:25
College convention this is a major
90:27
convention of our conference I’ve
90:29
creative it’s conference or convention
90:30
but anyway it’s called the NEC see and
90:33
they have it every presidential election
90:35
cycle where they have big-name
90:37
presidential candidates come and speak
90:39
to the audience Donald Trump spoke there
90:42
in 2016 this year was I believe Liz
90:44
Warren tulsi gabbard
90:46
Tom Styer and I may be forgetting others
90:48
as well Fuhrman Supreme is not only the
90:51
only libertarian candidate for president
90:53
who has ever been invited to an NEC C
90:55
he’s the only third-party candidate he
90:59
ended the convention he had the audience
91:01
eating out of his hands now he did start
91:06
with satire he went up and led them in a
91:08
singing of a anthem that he came up with
91:10
right then but
91:12
horn he then had them chant the alphabet
91:15
in a very odd order but he got it would
91:19
go ahead which order was it it was a it
91:25
was a very odd order he then declared
91:27
war on Narnia then once he had them
91:31
eating out of the palm of his hands
91:32
laughing at everything he had to say he
91:34
started talking about the Libertarian
91:36
Party platform and libertarian
91:38
principles and the Libertarian Party and
91:41
why he was running and having already
91:44
brought their defenses down where they
91:46
had been hearing the same political talk
91:48
from the same politicians over and over
91:51
and over and over again they had a funny
91:53
man get them to wake up again people
91:56
walking back into the room to see what
91:58
this was all about and then he talked to
92:00
them about libertarianism and he got a
92:02
much larger audience than any other
92:04
libertarian candidate could possibly get
92:06
precisely because he leads with satire
92:09
whether you agree with that approach or
92:10
not the numbers don’t lie he’s bringing
92:13
in massive numbers of people that for
92:15
the first time are actually hearing
92:17
about libertarianism and they’re not
92:18
being exposed to it where the candidate
92:20
is the butt of the joke
92:22
like with Gary Johnson who you know
92:24
couldn’t say what Aleppo was this time
92:26
the candidate is the one telling the
92:28
joke and when you have 46% of Americans
92:31
who do not vote because they think the
92:33
system is a joke and you have many more
92:35
who vote Republican or Democrat based on
92:38
who they think is the least of the
92:40
terrible options they all think it’s a
92:42
joke and they’re treating it like a joke
92:45
and now we’re going to treat it like the
92:47
joke it is and then once we have their
92:49
attention we’re gonna tell them what
92:51
they need to hear about self ownership
92:54
non-aggression the libertarian platform
92:56
and why they need a viable third option
92:58
which is us and that’s ultimately what
93:01
we’re doing if you like my opinions on
93:05
politics they’re the same as vermin
93:06
vermin as a principle an Turkish has
93:08
been longer than most of us have been
93:09
alive and and now he’s brought it to us
93:12
he’s brought his his well-known satire
93:15
to the party and we’re going to we’re
93:18
gonna ride it all the way to the White
93:19
House that’s our plan he’s getting
93:21
massive amounts of engagement the
93:23
campaign team routinely has people
93:25
attacking us to find out more because
93:27
their kids follow vermin on tik-tok
93:29
vermin has more followers and mentions
93:32
on tick tock than any other candidate
93:34
including Bernie Sanders he is
93:36
incredibly incredibly popular with young
93:39
voters and disengaged voters on a
93:42
politically unaffiliated voters these
93:44
are the people the most likely to
93:46
consider a third party candidate and
93:47
they’re considering him is it enough for
93:50
us to win
93:51
I know it’s enough for us to get way
93:52
more votes than any other libertarian
93:55
has ever gotten and if we’re going to
93:57
win it’s gonna require name recognition
93:59
and you’re not going to get that with
94:01
someone who isn’t capturing the public’s
94:04
attention because the media is not going
94:06
to give us the attention and if they do
94:08
it’s only to make us look bad so if we
94:11
go there and make them look bad and now
94:13
we have we’re the ones telling the joke
94:15
and the audience is in on the joke
94:17
that’s a game that you know you’re not
94:20
gonna see from from someone playing the
94:22
respectability game that the Libertarian
94:24
Party has been playing for almost 50
94:25
years now so I respect your opinion
94:28
though I totally understand that I was
94:30
one of the people that didn’t get it and
94:31
now I get it and if you keep showing off
94:36
that kind of chest Mane like you were in
94:38
that oh did you like that oh my goodness
94:41
my goodness you were you were telling it
94:46
with the chest mane right yeah you were
94:48
killing it with the chest mean someone
94:50
asked me what kind of tie I was gonna
94:51
wear I said oh I don’t need a tie I got
94:54
some vile manliness to show off here
94:56
yeah you’re just spreading the
94:58
pheromones oh yeah no they were feeling
95:00
it male raw primal male energy has no
95:03
inflation that’s great
95:06
so yeah we’re gonna be in Georgia Matt’s

95:10
