My Michelle live podcast.
Hey, thanks for joining in. You made it through another week and as a special treat, we're going to take on the news. And a lot of the news that is under-reported spin doctored things that you don't get to hear any more because well, free speech is so yesterday come on and because of, , People who get canceled.
, we're going to announce a little later who gets the canceled package this week and that's something we'll, we'll talk about. But welcome to my Michelle live. My Michelle live is a place where we report kind of like they used to do in the old days. Now it's like innovative. Wow. I can't tell you how many people guests come on the show.
Thank you for doing this man. It's so good and refreshing to have a voice out there. That report it's like, no, it's called journalism people. And so we report the news and yes, we will comment on the news, but we do research are our sources and we get to what we call the God's story. And. This is where we look for on this program.
On this day, a little week in review, that's read a week in review where the news goes round and round and round. So we're going to be taking it on. I want to introduce you to my guest host. Uh, well, he's not a guest anymore. He's just, he's just family. Right? And so my, my cohost of our weekend review is Adam.
Let's review the week, the Rez report with Adam brews, a Euro. And I keep saying we we've allowed big voice guide to change your name from Adam to, I mean, I don't even know what your name is anymore. He just says like a white guy and we're going to be talking about that white privilege, big voice guidance.
indeed. Yeah. The way I've always sort of like explained it to people, I'm just like, think about lake Erie, right. And then just raise Erie. And so the first day of school though, you know, growing up, I got, there were people that were just like, , I'm just like, there's no
rose by any other name would smell as sweet as, as they say, I haven't.
Thanks for joining Nan. You can find Adam ad agency partners and their active. He is a marketing specialist and, uh, he is up on the news. He's my co-host. As we look into a week in review, lots of things that are going on, and we're going to try to get to some of the big stories, especially ones that are under reported that we can give you the full news view.
Adam, what do you got first off the bat,
man, it's pretty crazy week. You know, I think all of us kind of know that Facebook went down on Monday, which was pretty, pretty crazy, uh, Facebook as a company lost 6 billion in revenue that day alone. But man, just thinking about all those small businesses and Facebook users that were locked out and just as canceled as Michelle and I have been from, from time and time again, uh, that was pretty crazy.
Uh, and also to just kind of that basically followed the Facebook whistleblower, uh, announcement and I think. That was a pretty huge story that, that hit, we've seen the wall street journal releasing the Facebook vials now for a period of time following this whistleblower releasing information to the sec.
And then of course also releasing information to the press as well. Really just a lot of stuff that validates a lot of things that we already know. Um, and Franklin Michelle, I found a deeper story there. Uh, there were people asking, well, is this whistleblower actually just a Democrat operative? Is she w what's the, what's the angle of there?
So I, you know, I found some interesting connections there between her and frankly, Jen Psaki and then also, Eric Charmella.
Uh, that's a big news story. Uh, some huge news stories as well, where the vaccine and children are concerned. I mean, story after story study, after study country, after country, it is huge and it's making the United States of America look like some backwater third world nation.
We're just not keeping up on things. So we're going to talk about that. Uh, and I think, uh, some other issues that are on the table, some, uh, crazy biases that are affecting all of us, uh,
It explains a, you know, I think, uh, the president's approval ratings too, that we just start there. Okay. Yeah. We'll start there for sure. Uh, you know, so it's interesting, Michelle, and we kind of saw this, I guess, happening with just the, the border crisis, getting really terrible and then boom, the issue in cobble happened.
And that's when you started to see the far, far left liberal media start to come out and say, you know what, this Joe Biden guy, I don't know about him. And so this week we saw Jake Tapper of all people starting to get some heat from the far left because he was just pointing out. Basically just data, uh, Joe Biden's approval rating from the polls, which, uh, this past month, a 38% approval rating for a guy who's not even a year into his presidency.
And this follows kind of a trend of it being in the low to mid fifties or so over the first six months, uh, it was a 42% approval in September. And yeah, now we're, we're looking at literally a 38% approval rating, which is pretty crazy when you, when you look past that to looking at the economy specifically, how Biden has been handling the economy itself, not much better about a 39% approval rating.
And then just the basics of character is, is Joe Biden, honest guy. Does he even know what he's talking about? 44% of Americans think he's honest. So less than half of the country thinks that the things that come out of his mouth actually have credibility. And then whether or not he's competent to run the government.
Um, frankly, this is a, the question was. Is he competent or not competent? 55% of Americans think that Joe Biden is not competent in running the government today. So Jake Tapper was pointing this stuff out and he started getting tons of heat, just Twitter blew him up. Um, and then here we are,
Oh, Jake, this is fake news and Quinnipiac. Paul, what are you talking about? Just like lots of, Hey, people are thinking that Jake has sort of turned his back on the far left, uh, just by reporting this sort of information. You know, I think it's hard to listen to anything that comes
out of Syria, hoarding people it's called reporting.
And for those of you who are new to the class, let's point out that that's how the media is supposed to run. You're supposed to report on stories even, and especially, uh, stories that. Challenge the president. And if the media was doing that, if we really saw how Joe Biden cannot put sentences together, right.
He just cannot do that. He says things that go off into space. And that's the president of the United States. Now from the day one of the Trump administration, people got on the air, psychologists were analyzing Adam and saying, is he competent? Uh, for as, as president he's, is he a narcissist? Is he? And they were psychoanalyzing him without him ever sitting on their couch.
I think that was fair to look at it. I'm on the know. And if he's, if he's looking wacky, let's talk about it. But the same. Rule of reporting has not, not only not applied to Joe Biden, but we're not seeing that you have to go to alternative sources to see some of the things that they cut out. You had mentioned before we got on the air, some of the, the carefully guarded, he doesn't take questions.
We talked about that last week, we had sound bites on that. They have fake sets. Everything is carefully orchestrated. It's almost like the conspiracy theory with the, uh, with the moon landing, you know,
the fakes cetera, so goofy. And just to think that Jake Tapper. From Quinnipiac, there was a quote from this guy named Tim Malloy.
He's a polling analyst over there at Quinnipiac university. And Jake got blasted for allowing this guy just to speak the truth of what the story of what the poll showed here. He said, battered on trust, doubted on leadership and challenged on overall competency. President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues.
Its downward slide to a number not seen since the Tufts scrutiny of the Trump administration. It's because like Michelle said, I mean, he, he has to basically do whatever his handlers say when he's at the podium taking questions, he's he literally says things like, oh, I don't know if I'm allowed to answer that.
Or I don't know if I'm allowed to do this and do that, man. You're the president of the United States. Who are you? Like, how are you not allowed to answer questions from the press? That's your job? Um, so here we are, you know, we're, we're actually learning that he does. I think the, the, the video of him getting his vaccine, right.
We saw kind of like the full angle shot of what was going on in that room. And it was revealed to us that he was sitting on a stage and a fake oval office getting the job. I mean, you have to ask yourself, well, what was actually in that syringe? Right? Like maybe it was just saline. I it's, it's hard to believe anything that we see now when you just everything's a production,
but you have to, you have to ask that question to, you know, because honestly, yeah, that sounds like, okay.
Yeah, conspiracy. Well, everything else is, is fake and carefully doctored. And basically good information is completely taken off the table. You're not allowed to say those kinds of things, whatever happened to free speech. And then there's, there's more biases now. I don't care what side of the fence you're on.
It really doesn't matter to me. I think all these points of views that are out there are important. Even the ones that disagree vehemently with me. Why? Because it sharpens a, I use this scripture all the time. Cause I love it as iron sharpens iron. So one man sharpens another, you know, if you think about, uh, crossing blades in the movies, sparks flag, it sharpens your, your blade, so to speak, uh, when you have someone that disagrees, it makes you have to think research it, find sources, not just spout off ideas, which does happen a lot on both sides.
So I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. I don't care if you agree or disagree, but what we all should be really concerned about is the disallowance of the dissemination of information that is factual, that is researched and saying, no, we're not allowed to say that anymore because it does lead to a horrific double standard.
And that leads to a, a, another, uh, new story, uh, on the Texas high school gunman that was released on bail one day. One day after shooting a teacher and for others,
it's freaking nuts, Michelle, and this is actually this happened not, not all too far a drive from actually where I live. This happened in Arlington, Texas, which is basically between me and where the Cowboys play.
Um, and it's it's Arlington frankly, is a kind of a really cool center for entertainment. There's some theme parks over there. Uh, it's close to where the Texas Rangers baseball team is as well. Um, and then there's also some water parks there, but you know that water's a little too warm for me. I'm not touching that place.
Um, now under respect to kind of what Michelle was saying, these double standards, these inconsistencies, uh, seeing the law not be applied equally across the, across the entire spectrum here, this, this 18 year old Timothy Simpkins literally shot his teacher and four other students because they were apparently bullying him per his own claim.
This guy was released the day after going to school and lighten the place up on a $75,000 bail. Right. He was released on a $75,000 belt. He got out the next day. No cuffs, just walking, walking home, basically put Michelle, I think about just some other things that have happened over the past year or so think about, okay, so Kenosha, right.
Kenosha was the scene of a really crazy riot. Um, there's a lot of violence between obviously two sides of the, of the political spectrum. Antifa was there, there were violent. Um, and there was also this teenager there an in Kyle Rittenhouse who was seen throughout several hours of footage, um, actually administering first aid to actually people that were both on the Antifa side of the fence.
And then also people that were on the, um, the, the live free side of the fence, I guess you might say, uh, Kyla Rittenhouse was thrown in jail for a shooting. Uh that's that came from, uh, an act of self-defense. He was shown being chased by a mob of people. Uh, one of those people actually had a gun, uh, that was being raised to Kyle's back as he dropped to the ground with his rifle and then shot at, uh, I think it was two people.
So this, this teenager, uh, was basically involved in a self-defense shooting, right? The kid was given a $2 million bail. I mean, I don't know who the heck can pay for a $2 million bail. Um, he didn't take a gun to a school. He didn't attack somebody just
randomly. If you, if you think, , , what, , he did was reprehensible.
That's perfectly fine. That's why we have a court of law, but it is indisputable that there was violence and that was being administered. And in that case, it may not mean that. His life was actually in danger, you know, that has to be weighed out in court. But looking at, these two incidents, one shooting, a teacher and a defenseless students, and let's assume bullying was going on.
Does that punishment fit the crime and the person who is literally being, , being chased. Okay. , , why wouldn't we see a $75,000 bail? Uh,
The scales of justice, don't seem to kind of balance out there and then even more extreme Michelle, the January 6th, pretrial detainees, right on the far left, they call it the capital riots or the insurrection.
Um, I think the January 6th event might be a descriptor for it. Uh, certainly there was violence there.
If that's not an insurrection when black lives matter burst into and protest, why was that? Not an insurrection as well? Well,
in that case, Michelle was at Chaz, right. We're territory was taken over.
It was occupied and held, right? Like actual physical land was. Held and inside the, the G I guess the jurisdiction of Chaz, I say that with like a half smirk, there was, there was lawlessness, uh, rape. Well,
you know, I walked through there many times because it was in my own backyard essentially, and blocks from where I worked.
, and during the day it was, this hippie Levin festival. But at night it was, it was scary, very militaristic by the way, , armed people. , they had different factions who were controlling. It was like, well, you know, you don't want police, but yet you have these uncoordinated yahoos with guns.
It was, it was very, very scary. It was indeed. But why isn't that equal
it's really not because you think about the, that there were two teenagers, at least that were shot within the confines of Chaz. Um, and you couldn't, you couldn't get emergency
personnel. They were, they were, there were deaths.
Absolutely. And, and no, no first aid could be given to these people. They couldn't get any care. Um, the, the, if I were a parent, I'd be like, well, honey, why were you there to begin with? Um, but, but that being said, they still didn't deserve that. Right. Um, and so you think about that and that really, I think, is more fitting to an insurrection than, than not.
Um, they took over police stations, they took over buildings. Um, it, it it's, it's just unimaginable, but it actually happened, which is the crazier thing. Uh, but then you, look, you look at the Vienna capitals at the Capitol hill on January 6th, right? The. Fatality by a gunshot was Ashley Babbitt, uh, a military veteran wearing an American flag as a Cape, uh, who was definitely breaking the law.
She broke property, but she wasn't actually threatening anybody physically. Um, but she was killed. And of course there was the, the capital officer who was ruled to have died from natural causes. And that's absolutely terrible and very tragic in and of itself. Uh, but you think about the others, the people that were there that were captured on social media that were captured on the three photographs, right?
A lot of them were arrested and, and charges were brought against them by the, by the federal government. Uh, there was, you guys might recall this one image of the guy in Nancy Pelosi's office with his, uh, his feet kicked up on her desk. And he was, he was sitting in her chair. He was pretty proud of himself.
And, and, you know, there was just like the, the kid in me definitely laughed when I saw that the photo. Cause I was just like, oh yeah, that's, that's kind of crazy, but really kind of funny too, but it's, I know it's not funny. This guy, he's a 61 year old named Richard Barnett. And he had to spend over three months in solitary confinement, which is literally defined as 22 hours per day in solitary confinement.
He spent over three months in solitary confinement by himself, locked up for four that he, I know he took stationary from Pelosi's desk, but I also know that he left money on the table to like pay for it. Um, think about that. He spent over, I think it was 109 days in confinement. At one point he had a cardiac event and he was denied proper health care.
Um, but then think about Timothy Simpkins, this high school shooter over here at, in Texas. Shot five people, a teacher and four kids and was out the next day on bail. It, it does not add up to me at all. It's it's just, it's totally unimaginable. How was that? How is that fair?
I don't think that it necessarily is.
Different jurisdictions, , do come into play if, if I were to be honest, but yet this is something that is part of, , becoming woke. And, , this week on my Michelle live, you can listen to our Thursday. Broadcast of my Michelle live, where we talk with Kenny Xuabout the salvation army and it's going Wolk.
Here's what Kenny had to say about the salvation army, sending out to its members and leaders. I piece on, let's talk about racism, , that, which I think is perfectly fine. And until you realize that it is rife with a lot of critical race theory, that makes the assumption that you act and think a certain way because of the color of your skin, which in itself, , what do they call that?
Uh, oh, racist. Hello. Let's listen to Kenny. Here's the issue with the salvation
army is let's talk about racism statement and how it relates to wokeness, right? Um, if you're asking your members to repent for racism, you were saying
that your members are racist
and the salvation army is probably the least racist organization in America for the past 200 years in 1890.
Before six, a pen for racism. You were
saying that your members are racist and the salvation
army is probably the least racist organization in America for the past 200 years in 1898,
Okay. I'm letting it play twice because it's so nice. But, uh, seriously think about that. , the salvation army, I like many other church organizations.
I think if we were to be honest, have had bits and pieces, I'm sure of S of racists, leanings. I think the salvation army in full disclosure, because that's what I do, , had a hand in some of the. Aboriginal, , separations of families, , back in the day, , that is certainly not part of who they are today.
And they've issued many things that talk about their acceptance of, , their acceptance of, of all races and creeds of this is serious because it is a Christian organization. And I'm just going to say, and the God's story and racism is that the Bible says there is neither Jew nor Greek, nor slave nor free everyone was equal.
And a time when the Bible was written where there was anything but equality, but within the. The following of Christ complete equals your slave equal with you in Christ your brothers. That was a radical concept. That's where you get real equality. But, , I think we're seeing a lot of this wokeness and it's like a religious jihad that must be enforced and to the detriment of free speech.
And we're seeing this a lot at an, a story that you had mentioned that talks about the whistleblower at Facebook folks. This is huge as you're listening, honey, you gotta tune into this. , there is one issue. I would think that we can all agree. In the Americas, you would hope we could all agree on. And that's human trafficking.
, the sexual exploitation of children is absolutely beyond heinous. Now we'll we can do a whole new show on how there are voices out there that say, no, no, it's not heinous. You need to allow that I'm not even going there because anyone who thinks like that, you have a reprobate mind. Boom. We'll just leave it at that.
But this is mind blowing. When you think of the amount of human trafficking, , information for, , sexual exploitation of children that Facebook alone is responsible for. Let's take that on Adam.
Oh my gosh. So it's, it's just. Okay. So it's really crazy to think about Facebook as a tool for employment. And I say that because the cartel has literally used Facebook to employ Texas teenagers or Texas young 20 year olds.
It employs Texas kids and it hires them basically to help them with their trafficking of humans and drugs. So we're going to pay some 20 year old, a ridiculous amount of cash. And then we're going to basically weaponize that, that kid to move stuff for us, it's going to move people and it's going to move terrible, terrible drugs.
And that's why we see are you look at the drug rates in our country rising, you know, it's cause they're coming over the border, you know, commensurate with the amount of people coming over the border on a daily basis. Um, that's just that alone. But then you think about. Well, Facebook is also paying used Michelle to, um, to fuel the underground organ trade market.
So the black market for organs is, is literally flourishing on Facebook
market. And can we say, when Zuckerberg was talking about, about this, he was basically saying, yeah, we know this is happening. Um, and we're developing algorithms to try to stop this, but we just can't do it really, but you can freak and take me down like that.
If I say, Hey, if I have. A story like Perry Collins from North Carolina, who is the recipient of our counseled hat. And t-shirt because he posted how his child and we're going to talk more about children and the vaccine and vaccine. He posted on Facebook, how his child was adversely affected that they had to take her to the hospital.
They were scared to death that she wasn't going to make it. And he wanted other parents to know that this, to be prepared, if they're gonna jab their child. Now he didn't say anything pro or he said he was even vaccinated. So it's not like he's anti-vax, but he was taken down. Boy, they can take that down in an instant before it, before anyone gets a chance to read that because he's in danger like me to society.
If you were a VIP, though, he could have said whatever he wanted about COVID, which is insane. The whistleblower revealed the truth. So she didn't review, I would say any real new information, but she validated a lot of what we already knew. And part of that was the fact that Facebook has a class system.
There are these elites in Facebook, it's about 6 million people of VIP's journalists, activists, artists, basically famous people. Right. And they can say whatever the heck they want. Literally, those people are not subject to the same AI filtering that we are. So when we say stuff, we're shut down almost immediately, you know, we're, we're lucky to get our accounts back.
It's a really cumbersome process to, to argue our suspension. And it also too, it's cumbersome just to understand why we were suspended to begin with. Um, you know, I guess, I guess they just don't like Michelle on the guitar, but you know what? She's darn good on guitar. So they need to lighten up and be a little bit more fair.
Um, Francis Haugen, she's this whistleblower and she really just validated the fact that Facebook consistently says things publicly, but privately, but behind their walls. It's a very different story. Whether it's about teen mental health, The fact that they've conducted a three-year research on what social media specifically Instagram does for teenage girls?
Well, Facebook's trying to protect the, the truth of that data because it harms their business model. Especially as we see, you know, other platforms like Tik TOK, taking steam and kind of rising and growing its user base, uh, the, the Facebook whistleblower, she, she really, I think was very articulate and describing things that we already knew.
But the interesting thing is that there are many that are saying, well, wait a minute, who, who is this lady? And is she actually a Democrat operative? Now this is a really interesting one because when I first, the week, I
, you know, that phrase truth is greater than fiction.
You're just calling. Wow.
That's so trippy Michelle. And it's like, it's a, literally, there's always a story behind the headline, you know? And like when the week started, I was just like, okay, this is real. Great like this, this, this whistleblower is validating stuff that we already knew. But then when I, when I looked a little bit deeper into things and I started to understand sort of what some of the, some of the, um, I guess the controllers of the strings behind the, behind the scene, you know, who they were, I was really shocked to learn some things.
I was shocked to learn that the whistleblower's PR firm is the same firm that Jen Psaki used to work at the same firm that was founded by one of the top Obama, uh, aids. And then also her legal team is the same legal team that represented Adam shift's fake whistleblower, Eric Charmella, um, back during the whole, like, remember that, that phone call between Trump and the Ukraine in the Ukrainian president.
And it was basically, Trump's saying, Hey, you know what? I think you should probably look into this Barisma company a little bit more closely, um, that, that guy, so, you know, kind of considering also that the whistleblower was a part of Facebook's civic integrity team, the same. That censored, the hunter Biden laptop story, um, that she's consistently been a donor to the democratic party, a big supporter of AOC, even though she's not from New York, uh, you know, it's like, there's some real connections there and you, you start to ask yourself, well, what might the motivation be?
And when it comes to changing big tech, when it comes to shaping the future of how we communicate as a C as a society, well, I think what we're seeing here is the, the far less effort to control that future, to control what the outcome of that is here. We have this whistleblower saying, I think that Facebook and tech is not censoring enough content.
I don't think that Facebook is censoring enough users. But then of course the other side of that argument is, you know, what? The internet should be a place, basically a marketplace for, for free and fair competition of the best or the worst ideas. You know, let everybody talk, let everybody share what their viewpoints are and may the best ideas weighting
ask you this.
If, if you say, yeah, those things shouldn't be said, I hear that a lot because I live in the Republic of Seattle. And so I hear that a lot. I hear well that you just should not be allowed to say that, ask yourself this. Why, what are you so afraid of? If you're right, then the truth sets you free. If you're wrong, then don't you want to know what's right.
And who gets to be the arbiter of all truth? Who is it that makes those decisions. And how do you feel about that with. Well, maybe your truth is actually not only a lie, but your truth may be actually killing people. I want to get into, , some of the mistruths, , you sent this picture, , someone challenging Twitter, and it says, Hey Twitter, since I know your goal is to be fair and consistent regarding politics, will you be labeling this Joe by lie as misinformation that the vaccinated can't get or transmit?
You know, I love that tweet and it's, so it's this verified Bluejack called clay Travis. And I don't know if he's a blue Bluejack good or bad. I just don't need to check next to his name. Um, you're I guarantee you, so when you look at the, at the ratio of Biden fact-checks versus any conservative influencer or libertarian influencer, I mean, John Stossel is getting shot down by big tech, you know, fricking John Stossel, man.
Um, you know that this, this Biden saying Facebook's killing people, man. And it just, all this stuff, it's not getting checked. Nobody's looking at that because the fact checkers are funded by the same people that are funding the political elite today.
, so now the narrative is, has changed to, will you get the vaccine to lessen the effects, which might be fair. And especially if you're in a high risk category, you take that under consideration with some of the adverse effects and some of the concerns over, , these vaccines, they were, this is a matter of fact, very provable and mainstream sources.
The vaccines were doing animal testing and those testings were canceled because too many animals. We're dying. Well, that's why you do animal testing so that you make sure that that doesn't happen to human beings. There's the concern, , micro blood clots. , there are people who say, , we could see some people dying in the next two to five years.
This is a reality. , that's a by-product we're, we're so used to those byproducts. Aren't we we're so used to watching commercials that say, well, this drug can help you with your eczema. It may cause your brain to leak out of your anus. We're so used to that, that we're like a week we can live with side effects until it happens to us.
And if we aren't talking about. A hello. Vaccines will never get better if we don't challenge it. That's the by-product of you saying it should not be said to, we are not able to say, but here's what you can do to offset that. Here are some things that you, that you can do to protect yourself from those things.
You will have no protection. So when you're hospitalized down the road, boom, and how many people were listening to the president and said, I have the vaccine I've, I'm perfectly safe. And they infected people that they loved unknowingly. That is so unfair. If we would have had people able to spread useful information and have that balance, then we would have.
A little bit more truth to set us free,
Adam. And yet here we are Michelle, where it's more dangerous than ever to post any content on YouTube or Facebook about COVID positive or negative. You say the word COVID on there, you're likely to get shut down. So the fact that you can't, I mean, you made a really good point, Michelle.
Okay. Yeah. So let's acknowledge the fact that there could be side effects. Right? All right. Well, I would like to hear from people that have experienced side effects so that we understand how to mitigate those, those are really important conversations,
Unless that person works at Google or YouTube or Facebook or Twitter. I mean, you, you literally have to become an you basically, you have to become a whistleblower at Facebook or Google, and then you have to secretly reveal documents to the sec, uh, to get any attention without being shut down, just to get information that's, you know, kind of shared with the masses, you know, um, you can't just share information with your close-knit community of friends and neighbors and family, uh, without falling victim to the sensors.
I think it's just totally ridiculous.
I do want to make this promise to you as you're watching, listening, or reading that. , even though, yeah, I've been canceled here and there. , I have always find a way to get that information up, to keep it on my firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make the commitment to you to make sure that the information that we share is well researched.
If for some reason something comes up and I realize, oh, okay, that wasn't right. I'm not only going to tell you on a. But I will write it on my website. So please keep me accountable, please. You won't be canceled if you say, wait a minute, here's this study, but I don't want your opinion. I don't want the, you shouldn't be saying this year, a blankety blank, blank.
I want studies. I want reliable sources and I will research them. That is my promise to you that I will give you that email@example.com. It will be there and you'll be able to find it until, you know, they canceled me there too.
And just to add to that, Michelle, you know, there is a Haven for free speech.
Thank God for that. Uh, w go to rumble row. If you've heard of, of YouTube, and you've heard of Vimeo a competitor to those called. Uh, the only, my only knock to them is that they're, they're based in Toronto. They're Canadian, not American, but you know what? We are friends with Canada and it's all good. These guys are fighting the good fight.
And, uh, you can find me on rumble. That's where I post all of my videos because they, they don't mind free speech. Um, this is, I
think you got to seek him out though. Just, I just want to add just, you have to seek out rumble because there is actually a lawsuit between rumble and Google. Right now, Google part of the antitrust lawsuit is the fact that Google preferences its own products.
So it's a lot easier to find a YouTube video than it is to find a rumble video. So, you know, just go through that extra click, go to page two or, or just click for rumble specifically because Google is right now trying to obviously give YouTube
search engine. , my listener friend can go to where they won't find sentence because Google does sensor where they won't find censored content, where they w they will be able to look for something.
And Google won't say, no, you're not allowed to do that.
Yeah, definitely. The, so there are, there are choices there too. The only thing that you'll realize, and I, I would challenge everybody to check out. So come up with a Google search term. That is just a, just a basic question. That might be a little bit critical of the far left.
Right? Search it on Google, and then search it in being an insurgent in Yahoo, which Yahoo and Bing are the same, basically. So you're good there, but then do that same search in duck, duck go. Um, the thing that I have. Say here is this that, so, so Google's algorithm is really, really good for search your user experience when you're using Google is it's really, it's hard to compete, even, even Yahoo, Microsoft, uh, search engine has a hard time competing against Google's algorithm, ducked out, go.
The nice thing about duck, duck go, is it doesn't track you the way the others do. It's not going to give you search results based on any sort of bias at the company level. So, you know, I definitely encourage you to check that out, but just know that when you're searching for things that are a little bit more basic, Google's gonna give you a much better experience.
You're looking for shopping items, or if you're trying to find new lawn furniture and go to Google, you know, it's second to none. Uh, there's great. Th they do have great information, but if you're looking for a research items on the, let's say
any kind of vaccine. Well, the vaccine antitrust topics. If you're looking at like any kind of topic, critical to Google, you should already expect that Microsoft's going to be a little bit more truthful than Google will be in the search results, right?
So just, you know, challenge your mind, explore different options. Duck, duck go is a great one to try.
I appreciate that. Now I'm talking about misinformation than the vaccine. These are articles are going to post pictures as we go of as many as we can. They're big, huge, humongous stories that have come out that are very big.
Well-known studies, big well-known countries that are making statements. And so we're going to go through things where children are concerned. We're already back to school. We have kids that are supposed to mask up, get vaccinated. Kids are being dragged out of class and given the vaccine. Without their parents' approval in many places in the United States.
, I'm in, I'm trying to get in contact with a woman here who, , not only is experiencing that because of the vaccine, but her kids were reportedly taken out of class because they were wearing card Carhartt's sweatshirts and a boot cut jeans. And they said that their clothing was, was racist. So because it's too country.
Oh my gosh. That, so that, that makes me feel racist against country people. And that is messed up because they're being racist country
people, man. Well, let's, let's talk about some of these, these crazy issues. Uh, true story. I'm putting this up on the screen. A Swedish and Danish health officials had announced wins.
This week that they would pause the use of the maternal vaccine for all young adults and church children. Finland on Thursday, pause the use of maternity COVID-19 vaccine for younger males. Now some of this is due to in Finland because of the cardiovascular side effects of myocar dosas. , we did, , Sweden was saying there and the Danish said there's too many adverse effects.
And the chances of kids getting the virus are very small. , and I'm going to go through some of these because they're , very important.
You're trying to protect yourself. You're trying to do the right thing. When you get the vaccine, I'm not demonizing you. I think vaccines can be a very good thing. I think sometimes the adjuvants we should worry about, I think we need to hold vaccine companies accountable and who the heck makes the decision that they, they have no culpability.
If it does kill people. I was talking with my cousin online who's vaccinated and protecting himself. And you may be listening now. Hello kids. Um, but it was said, Hey, you know, some of these people there's been deaths in children because of COVID. And, you know, these parents should have vaccinated their kids and it's like, well, you know, sometimes there's more to the story and I want to talk about more to that story so that you are truly informed.
So if you'll indulge me a little bit, Adam, let's talk about this. First of all, the flu is often more deadly to children than the Corona virus has proven to be. And I'm showing something, some information from the Mayo clinic that talks on who's at risk for symptoms. Um, the younger people who get COVID, uh, transmit the virus at lower rates and recover at higher rates, a vaccine mandate to them, according to science is largely on unnecessary.
This is, this is truth. There is more, you ready for it? Adam? I am going to change a screen. And see if we can find a little bit more information to share with you.
It just makes so much sense, though, right? Like when you're younger, you bounce back from things way more way more quickly than your twenties versus your thirties.
There's a hard difference at age
34. Common sense only 0.005%. Now I'm not a math girl, but that's pretty low. Let's listen. 0.005% of COVID infections among children. Have led to deaths less than 1% people, but there have been 572 reports of myocar dosas here, , and inflammation of the heart muscle following 3 million doses of the vaccine in the U S three studies.
This is brand new. Uh, let's get this up on the screen.
Three studies I heard you say as Michelle 0.005%. Two
zeros. Yeah, it's pretty, it's pretty stunning. A third or three studies this week by researchers that were out this week by researchers in the UK, then they say that children's absolute risk of dying from COVID-19.
In for testimony, small 99.99, 5% of the 469,000 plus children, almost 500,000 children in England who were infected during the year, examined by researchers survived. There were something like out, this is, this is coming out of my head. I have to remember, but of those who died, the vast majority had leukemia or secondary, ,
comorbid the D
that makes total sense, Michelle. And I just looked up the risk of that same age group dying from the flu 0.01%. So 0.01% the flu 0.005. COVID
yes, there you go. Okay. Let's look at Newsweek. Newsweek is a saying that unvaccinated children less likely to die of COVID than vaccinated the adults.
According to a study, a clinical trials carried out by Pfizer on children, 12 to 15 revealed 86% of children who were given at least one dose of the jab suffered. An adverse reaction rate were ranging from mild to serious. Now that's a huge high number. And to be fair, keep in mind. Some of that is my arm hurts, right.
Or, or feeling a little tired after the vaccine, which is normally even under the best of vaccines. So, but still there are some adverse effects there. And when we're looking at some of the, these problems there, this is a true story as well. I wanted to put up on the screen, uh, from the Brussels times.
Doctors want the Corona virus measure. Dropped for kids under 12 and schools, they say, you know, this is ridiculous. A masks are like child abuse. The vaccine is a necessary in most of these kids. And if your kid has, um, perhaps. A Como morbidity issue or concern, then you should take that into consideration.
So this is where we're at with children. And I think it's very, very important that we realize that why is this being pushed on children? Why are the Sweden, uh, Norway, , here in Brussels? Why are they looking at these things? And we're just going if you don't get vaccinated, you are hurting people.
Francis Collins, , he's the director of the NIH and also a, , evangelical he's basically said that if you do not get vaccinated, you are killing people. You are selfish because as, , our vice-president said, you know what? This is essentially love your neighbor. That sounds like the. Let's just miss appropriate scripture, along with the vaccine, we talked about it this week.
, this is what part of what John West had to say via
ERs because it's public and that's the vaccine adverse event reporting system. That's existed official governance system since 1990. And, you
know, yes, it's true that not all the duty in there
is necessarily validated, but it's a system we've had since 1990.
And for me, what raises a red flag for that is we've had 1.5 million adverse events, uh, report that system since 1990.
Most people don't know. Th the,
the proportion of that that have come just this
year. And we're not
year, just for the COVID vaccines, over 700,000 close to 50% of all adverse reaction reports in that system have now been filed this
of whether you think that that's a perfect system or not, and it's not,
but even if you're just comparing apples to apples, there's something going on there. When one set of vaccines suddenly outstrips every other vaccine for 30 years, suddenly
of the deaths to almost two thirds of the deaths reported in that system
associated with are having
taken a vaccine have now come this
year and are associated with these.
So take that into consideration. That's why choice is so important. That's why doctors being able to work with you and help you to make those choices are so important. And what about the people who have natural immunity, even Fowchee? Was I go, yo, that's something we're going to have to look at. Oh yeah.
Let's just, let's just push that out more from John West. Yeah.
ERs because it's public and that's the vaccine adverse event reporting system that's
existed. They're both the same. Uh, but it basically, he's he saying, you know, to try to use God and the Bible to bully people into getting the vaccine is a name.
I, I, I don't know here. We have a place where we're not, and we're talking about social media, the government, uh, mindsets, Adam, you are not allowed to talk about. Antibodies. And that's what we should really talk about. Are you inoculated? Do you have antibodies, whether you had the vaccine or not?
It's, it's so ridiculous.
And like, the more you dig into it too, and just like with big tech, right. Whistleblowers are very revealing and we've seen the whistleblowers come out of Pfizer and they kind of shed light and, or they kind of shine light into
That's right. That's right. And you know, I hate that. It always comes back down to this Michelle, but money and power money and fricking power.
So project Veritas had a, basically one of the Veritas journalists come in contact with two of Pfizer's, uh, scientists, basically one was a biochemist named Carl. Another was a senior associate scientists, scientists named Chris Crowse. Crutch. I'm not sure about the pronunciation there. So forgive me there if you're listening, uh, Mr.
Cross crochet, um, and a nutshell here's what was revealed. So money is the reason. And basically these scientists were kind of talking about antibodies. They were talking about the vaccine specifically, and they were talking about how everything that's taking place now between the mandates and just the big pharma in general, it comes down to the COVID vaccines, becoming the newest cash cow for Pfizer and.
When it comes to exploring things like the monoclonal antibody treatments, right? There's not a whole lot of
My Michelle live podcast.
Hey, oh, fresh back from Las Vegas, Nevada. Here we are my Michelle alive with so much to report on including an interesting experience I had down there that is applicable to all of us. All of us are in this together. And what are we in? Well, this is why you should be watching today. Listening or reading through my Michelle live.
There are so many things that are happening in the world around us, that you are no longer alive. To hear about, I promise you this, that everything that we talk about, we research and we double research and we don't go off. What anyone could say is hearsay. Yeah. There may be even more that we could re be reporting, but we want to go with the kind of sources that no one can refute and say, oh, you're just a Fox news, hag.
You know, we want to go for information that shows you, there are things going on out there. What you can do to protect yourself what you can do to be in the know. And even more importantly, what you can do to look a little bit deeper. This is why we encourage you to listen to my Michelle lives podcast, whether it's a.
We're going to be looking at a weekend review and reviewing the week. We can talk science and technology, health, sports, whatever it is, but we want to get to something deeper. And it's a message of hope. It's a message of life. It's showing that while everything seems to be in chaos, guess what? This is something that the Bible has predicted.
It's something that is consistent with a biblical worldview. And if that is the case, what if that's true? What if there really is a God out there? And we can get to the God's story and boom, beyond the crazy headlines and the nutty stuff coming out of the white house and the press room. There's a message of.
And there's life. That's what it's all about. And today it is all about looking at a week in
with our friend and cohost. And this Adam , Adam is the man behind agency partners, interactive. They do astounding marketing and he is the man who is up on a lot of things going on in the world around us. And so together we give you what we call the risk report. Friends report with Adam was a hero.
Boom, we can to you we've made it to the weekend. I made it past my crazy experiences in Las Vegas, Nevada, and you know, FYI, why was Michelle and Nevada? Well, I was, um, I was going to see my team, uh, hopefully win, which they did in the Seattle Sounders. And if you missed that report, you can, uh, rewatch our sports timeout, but here I am back and yet the world is still as crazy as it was when I did.
Oh, I got to say Michelle. I mean, for you coming back to Vegas, I mean, you look amazing. I know that like, and maybe there's a God story there like that is, or just an act of God, you know, to just come back from Vegas, looking so lively and sharp. I know when I come back from Vegas, when my wife was in Vegas, literally before the shutdowns, you know, like we need like a couple of days of silence and rest and like hydration.
I know. And you know, it can't be true. Just the walking alone. Um, I am not a big drinker. I don't, I don't get drunk, you know, a couple of days. And maybe a little, uh, light and happy, but I just, I I'm just not there to party. I was at a, um, walking through the casino and I heard this guy at the roulette table going, oh, I don't know how much I'm building.
I'm so stoned out of my mind. I don't even remember how I got here. I'm like, how are you having fun? If you can't even remember how, what you're doing, how you got there, where your money went.
I feel like Vegas is kind of a rough place for people that are like mildly optimistic, you know? Cause even just like traveling on foot, you know, you look across the road and you're like, oh yeah, no problem.
It's just across the street. And then like 20 minutes later, you're still trying to walk across the street. Um, you've covered so much, so much just like land, you know, it's just, everything's huge there. And so. Relatively speaking, it looks like next door is just like, what next door should be. But really it's like so much walking, you know, but then also to all the oxygen they pumped into the venues there, you know, I think it makes the brain a little bit sharper than it typically is.
So you, you kind of exert yourself in a special way. I just know it's just like for one casino to the next, there's like this different style of casino perfume, they pumped into the air and some places are a little more classy than others, you know? And I got to say like one time I took a flight from Vegas to San Francisco for work.
And, uh, when I got to the airport in San Francisco, I could still smell Vegas on me. And so when I went back to the. But to the hotel, sorry, I showered. And I like coming out of my hair was just like the smell of like casino perfume. And it was like this kind of like sour, floral smell. It just like, wasn't a good thing for, for work.
You know, I just had to get that off the no,
and it is something that they do. Um, everything that they do in the casino is trying to, is in order to try to get you money, the colors, the sounds, the atmosphere, the smell, the pumpkin oxygen to keep you going when you would normally say, I think it's time for bed blocks, you know?
Yeah. No clocks, nothing. You are absolutely right. It is just, yeah. It's one of
those, I guess in your case though, Michelle, almost like no freedom and in some respects like this, so guys like Michelle shared this story with me that I will know that she's going to share with us and like, okay, just coming from my experience.
My wife took me to this amazing venue over the weekend. Uh, saw the Dan band perform. It was at a venue in north Texas called lava Cantina. Uh, we weren't wearing masks. You know, we were having a great time and actually she, she had us a VIP section, but there were still about 20 people in our section. And you know, probably a few hundred people in general at the time.
No amass police going around saying, you can't do this. You can't do that. Uh, it actually felt like 2019 when we were there and it was an amazing experience. Uh, but Michelle, I know you saw sort of a musical sort of thing going down in front of you. And I think there were some masks involved. If I'm not mistaken,
This happened just two days ago. Uh, Wednesday night as we're in Vegas. Um, now keep in mind, masks are mandatory inside in the city of Las Vegas. Uh, and I want to give you, I'm going to give you some balance here because I'm not, I, you could call me an anti masker. I'm like, what's what is the purpose? Uh, you know, we don't wear them right.
Any way, unless you're wearing an N 95, it's not all that effective. There is a study that came out of India that I know none of the particulars on that said that, um, they, those who wear masks have 11% less likely to. Of catching COVID and that's the best numbers that they could come up with 11% now, I don't know.
Has the village already suffered? Uh, have they been vaccine? I don't know any of that. I just read, I just read a little bit about that 11%. All right. So for 11% we are pulling out the mass police. And if that helps, if that gives you some sense of security, I get it. But let me show you this picture. So we're at a piano bar at Harris.
So if you go in right across from the link, this is Harris, it's a jeweling kind of a piano bar. I love those and it's kind of fun. And so my friend is sitting there. You can see that he has is his mask down and he's holding. A drink in his hand because he's sipping his strength that most places, if you're drinking or eating, even on an airplane, uh, you don't need a mask.
They want to be a little more conservative. Okay. So in between sips, you have to have your mask on. So it has to be, which is not fun at all. Nonetheless, you can see our friend next to him has his mask on, right. Everyone kind of does in between sips for the most part, but they're lurking over people, making sure their masks are on my friend there says, okay, I see.
But let me just ask you this. Why is it that your piano chicks and some of your employees and people around employees, their masks are down here. Piano chicks don't even have masks on. So I'm going to show you the video. Oh, that's us in the limo. Getting there. Sorry about that. Which was fun. I'm not gonna lie here.
It is. So you're seeing us take pictures. He said, well, wait, look over there. They don't have masks on. And there's the piano girls standing up singing, shouting out to the crowd. At that point, he shines the light into my camera. You can't see this anymore. Whoa. And then they ask us to leave because he said, well, wait a minute.
Look at her. And I show her. She doesn't have a mask on light in the, in the camera. You can't film this, you can't film this. That's just, that's disturbing. You think they would want to say, yeah, film this, this is what we're doing for the health and safety of people. Oh, we're caught. So yeah,
that is basically full naked.
Like no mask,
no mask. Both of them, both of us. Not only that it
was bikini on some of the servers. I was like, this is ridiculous. This is just totally ridiculous. Why, why can they just do that? But you can't even, like,
he just asked that question. Why is that? He just, you know, that's all just, I I'd like to know why, what what's going on here.
do they say? When you're asked that question,
you have to leave. That's what they saw. You must leave this establishment.
Like, was it like, even like, uh, was there any question there? It was just like,
no, no, you just have to leave. You just have to leave all
of us. Boom. That's a hospitality establishment.
Like they're there to give you a good time. Isn't that what you paid for?
Okay. Yeah, exactly. Um, apparently my video didn't show. So let me, let me show this again. I'm so sorry, because this isn't the biggest deal of the entire night, but my video didn't show because I'm a video newb and my producer, isn't here to press the buttons, but there's my friend, just having a nice conversation with the guy and saying, well, wait a minute.
You know, I I'm actually literally drinking. Um, why are you standing over us? And while you're at it, here's the video. You and I could see it and her friends couldn't see it. So there he is pointing out how, yeah, she doesn't have a mask on she's standing up. Smiling singing, screaming out he's and then they point the, yeah, the light in my face and say, you've got to stop filming.
You got to get out of here. So this is where we're at. Um, and I think it speaks a bit to what we're, where we're at in America, Adam, uh, some of the problems that we're having with freedom of information with, uh, disclosure of, of, of things going on in the world of, um, even coming from our own white house.
And I want to give some examples of that as we talk about some of the big news stories that are going on.
As we dig into that specifically, Michelle, your experience. And we were talking about this before we kick this show off the fact that like your experience was also followed up with like this, like this, like goon squad coming around, you guys to escort you out of the facility, you had like these, the side
of the building and they wouldn't let us go into the link or they physically said, no, you can't go into any of our casinos.
And. Okay, this
is, I think about like the situation of like that, uh, that, uh, that church leader. And I think part of Canada, right? Just north of the border who had like, the police basically went to his facility, to his location to shut down a service, to stop people from, from worshiping. And so it's like, you, you have like these, like either like the goon squad, like these super big dudes that you're never going to beat at arm wrestling, or you have like these people wearing badges that come into force.
I think a little bit of tyranny here. I mean, it's just, just so beyond I think what should we should be experiencing?
Yeah. You know, from sports we can, we can ask, uh, Joshua McMellon bus, cause back in the day before he does what he does now, he also owned a security company and he would be, he would provide security much like these chubby goons and.
Would I have to use diplomacy and oftentimes humor. Cause sometimes you're dealing with drunk people. Now our group wasn't, a bunch of drunks, but going up to someone saying what would have hurt to say, sir, I understand, , we're compliant the best that we can wear a piano bar. And as a piano bar, we have lenience with our performer.
But because of that, we have to do this mask up. That that could be the case. We don't know. But you explain it and say, I'm sorry on an airplane. You, I I've heard both ways. This is the law you will comply or we will throw you off and we'll find you versus look guys, I know it's inconvenient. It's not fun, but these are the rules.
We didn't make them. It's a federal rule. Will you please comply? Because if you don't. We get in trouble. And then our jobs are in danger at delays of flight. If you'll, please get it on. And if you don't like your mask, you know, let's, let's continue to fight it somewhere else, but not here. You know, people are usually reasonable and say, okay, you get it.
But when you're lurched over, it is a problem, Adam. And that's where we are not allowed to ask questions. That's what we're really getting at today. My friends is that you're not allowed to ask questions. You're not allowed to hear the why's. You're not allowed to film. You're not allowed to, uh, get out information or to hear the right kind of, or the wrong kind of information.
It's just no longer for.
And we're not stupid either. And we can, we know what a double standard looks like. We know what Apocrypha is. And when you see, you know, this, this list of rules that are, that are in front of you, but then you see that the people who are writing the rules, aren't following them.
It's just like, you're like, well, why the heck are they even there? You know, it's like, you can travel and you have to put on a mask to travel, but we have people coming across the border that are able to get an airplanes and get on buses and be distributed to major us cities with no, no questions of COVID, you know, whether they have it or not, whether they've been vaccinated or not, and whether or not they have a mask, there's no question to that effect.
But you know, if we're, if we're an American citizen, we have to follow by the rules. But if we decide to break the law to come here illegally, we don't do double standards. And then also too, just in your experience with the piano person, right? Like performers versus non-performers the, the, the elites versus like those who are there to be entertained, you know, like, like they're not like in Hollywood, if you are on a stage or in front of the camera, You can pretty much do whatever you want.
Um, and, and it looks like the same for our politicians too. You have AOC going to the met gala, you know, with this, like at $30,000 cost of admission wearing a, probably a very expensive dress that says tax the rich and there's no mask on her face. Um, there's just so many double standards here that we're being forced to sort of like swallow and man, like, it's just really frustrating.
It's a pill that's too.
I'm sorry to take you to task as you're watching, but stop putting up with it. Why is it okay to you have a tax, the rich, and yet here she is the elite spending more money than most Americans make in an entire year on a ticket to this gala and not having to wear a mask,
but I will wear when I'm.
Is this like no Fowchee mask, let it hold it up to the camera here. So you can see it. It's like a no smoking sign, but it has Fowchee his face in place of
the cigarettes because , it's not about, it's not about being a Republican. It's not about being the Democrat. It's not about being conservative or liberal.
It's not about being black or white stop letting them put all of these values on us and labels. We're Americans. And we just want to know the truth. We just want to be free so that we can talk about things. And so that we can come to better solutions. How do we know that there is a, an elitist idea? Let me play some of these.
Do you remember when in a white house meeting, uh, the Saki had been asked, , well, how many people are vaccinated from the white house, you know, and on the white house staff. Let's let the case, why won't you just release the number of breakthrough cases you've had about tomatoes staffers? Well, I think first we're in a very different place than we were six to seven months ago, as it relates to the virus.
Uh, and as many medical experts have said inside and outside of the government of those who are vaccinated are protected from serious illness, most are asymptomatic. If they are individuals who are vaccinated should get the virus. Uh, and, uh, you know, we are in a different place in terms of impact of individuals who may have, as you said, through cases, it doesn't provide the lumber or, you know, but what is the, why do you need to have that information because understood, that'd be a better understanding though.
Break your cases. We're here in Hawaii. Oh, why do you need that information? Why do you need to know that? I mean, seriously? Oh, I don't know. Maybe it's because we're the American press and we're here to answer, to ask these questions because we're, we should be the voice of the people asking those questions and because this is a government of by and for we, the people and you are accountable to the people.
That's why, because Jen, maybe you didn't learn this in school, but you are accountable. To the American public, but let's take it into a news story that happened this week, which if you just don't believe me here. Okay. Before that, we'll go into the past of just a few, a few weeks where. Uh, the suppression of information and watching people who were going against the narrative became a question during another pisarski episode now in full disclosure, for those of you who have a Fox news adversion yes, this is a Fox news filial.
That's asking the question, but listen to it anyway. Cause I think, I think it's pretty revealing the administration then spying on people's Facebook profiles, looking for
that was quite and an accurate question, um, which I would refute. How so? Well, Peter. As you know, we're in, we're in a regular touch with, with a range of media outlets as well.
Let me finish as we are, as we are in regular touch with social media platforms, this is publicly, uh, open information, people sharing information online just as you are all reporting information on your news stations. Okay? So these 12 people who you have on a list of 12 individuals, do they know that somebody had the surgeon General's office is going through their I'm happy to get you the citation of where that comes from.
There's no secret list. I will tell you that these are people who are sharing information on public platforms, on Facebook information that is traveling is an accurate, our biggest concern here. And I frankly think it should be your biggest concern is the number of people who are dying around the country because they're getting misinformation that is leading them to not take a vaccine.
Okay. Let me just break. Baby down right there. Your greatest concern should be the people dying. Yeah, it is. That's why we're asking the questions. That's why someone's asking that question because we look at Israel. We'll talk about in just a moment with 80%. I actually it's a lot more that are vaccinated, but we're going with the conservative number and they have had a record this week of deaths and hospitalizations from these breakthrough questions.
That's why you ask these questions. What's going on? How can we stop it? Make vaccines better? I think vaccines are a great idea. However, if there is no accountability, it's not, uh, the greatest concern of what about the other concern that she said? Well, just like, you know, it's people on public forum reporting, just like you do with the news.
Wait a minute. Isn't that the whole thing that people have been saying is that yes, it is. And so as such, it should have. Freedom of information. It should, but there's but Facebook itself has said, oh no, no. And other, uh, of these social media sites and the white house have said on the other hand, no, well, they're not really a news source.
They're just a private company. And so there's a lot of things that you could break down in there, but that's not today's news story is it? That's just, yesterday's news of how, uh, the government is watching people and they're monitoring people who aren't giving great information. You know, they're, they're costing peoples lives.
People like this doctor, uh, who I'll play a news story. That is talking about a new story that I feel very free to report on now, because now it's breaking through, I don't mind reporting on it, but I'm telling you to say it in mass. I really do add them like to make sure that we have sources that no one can refute and say, oh, that's just that it's just that some conspiracy, it, it is immune enhancement and it is being talked about everywhere.
Listen to what this doctor says about immune enhancement. This, um, I want to, I want to give you the background and let me see if I can find it. This is Dr. Peter J Hotez and I may be suppose both days, let's say it like that. He's the Dean of national school of tropical medicine. Professor of pediatrics and money, molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor college of medicine.
That's if that's a, if that's a last name derived back from Mexico, just based on, and this is just an assumption based on Baylor, Texas being close to where I'm at, maybe it's Hotez I think it's.
I'm assuming this is what he had to say. One of the things that we're not hearing a lot about is the unique potential safety problem of Corona virus vaccines.
Uh, this was, uh, first found in the early 1960s with respiratory syncytial virus vaccines, that children, it was done here in Washington with the NIH and children's national medical center that some of those kids who got the vaccine actually did work. And I believe there were two deaths and the consequences of that study, because what happens with certain types of respiratory virus vaccines, you get immunized.
And then when you got actually exposed to the virus, you get this kind of paradoxical immune enhancement phenomenon and what, how, and, and we, we don't hardly understand the basis of it, but we recognize that it's a real problem for certain respiratory virus vaccines that killed the RSV program for decades.
Now, the gates foundation is taking it up again, but when developing a coronavirus vaccines and our colleagues, we noticed in laboratory animals that they started to show some of the same immune pathology that resembled what had happened 50 years earlier, he said, so we said, oh my God, this is going to be.
Okay, so it's going to be problematic. That's and that's um, the immune enhancement is basically saying, look with the vaccine. Unlike being exposed naturally with this vaccine, a vaccine is really targeting one strict. It doesn't have the ability with like your immune system does to recognize similar things and lessen the effect.
So what can happen and what they saw happen in animal testing, by the way, animal testing was halted with these vaccines because too many animals died. What they saw was this immune enhancement. So when you're exposed to another natural strain of the virus, you have a hyper reaction. And that's where you're seeing extreme cases.
If we're not talking about this, if we have pisarski and the folks out there at the white house monitoring doctors like this, who were saying, you know, this is what we found and taking them down and encouraging social media to stifled their voice. We're not protecting good people who wanted to get the vaccine to protect themselves and their family.
Now we know it doesn't protect others. Um, so. I think that it did and you're evil and you're hateful and selfish. If you don't get the vaccine, um, it doesn't protect others. It can protect you. So that's the new narrative. Okay. And you know what, I'm not going to contest that in some instance that, that it can protect you to a degree of getting, uh, a worst case of Corona, uh, if you're exposed to the right virus, but if you get exposed to something else, you could have a worse outbreak.
And now we're seeing in Israel where there are three of shots getting administered and you're seeing people die. We're going to hear from Anthony Fowchee in a few moments, but I want to bring this back to a current news story. As we're talking about the suppression of information that hurts all of us, regardless of your ideology.
Uh, just this last week, uh, just two days ago, actually the white house, um, had a meeting between the British prime minister, Boris Johnson and the president. Okay. Two days ago, white house reporters filed a formal complaint. These are not this wasn't Fox news. This was, this was all of the press, uh, filing a formal complaint against the Biden administration for refusing to answer questions.
They're in a meeting, two leaders of the free world, and there's so much going on from Afghanistan to COVID to, um, pandemic issues, trade and other issues. And yet, no question. We're allowed, Adam I'll even play a sound bite in just a moment, but I want to get your reaction. Well,
isn't that just so indicative of like the time that we live in now, you know, it's like, first of all, to have a, an event where you have the leader of the United Kingdom next to our leader here in the United States, that's a really big deal because they are such a historically strong ally of ours.
And it's been really, really sad to see our relationship with them sort of degrade a little bit since we'll certainly be the debacle in Kabul. Um, but, but you know, whether it's Peter Doocy at Fox, he's been doing a fantastic job. I have to say, uh, in the white house with his coverage,
And he's the only one.
We was one of the few asking the hard questions. I mean, we played another CNBC reporter, so I'm not gonna throw all of the media under the bus, but, uh, just like the, a lot of left leaning, you would think, uh, news outlets, we're not afraid to ask hard questions of the Trump administration could, that's what you do.
how many times did you see Trump being thrown? You know, dozens of questions, whether he was in front of the Marine, one about to do it in the helicopter for transport or, or actually in the briefing or, you know, in the, in the, the press room.
Exactly right. I mean, he would take angry questions. He would take accusatory questions and he would answer questions from, I would say news outlets that are not exactly pro pro-Trump outlets. I mean, it was a daily
answer, so, well, sometimes that's
kind of happened, but, uh, but he was exposed to that. Right.
And why Biden though? He calls Michelle. He comes back and says, oh, well I better not answer that one. Or I'm not, I'm not supposed to answer that one or I'm not okay. Who are your handlers? You're the president of the United States. Like who are you afraid of?
Yeah. You know who you should be afraid of the people.
This is a government of by and for we, the people, Joe, you work for us. If, if you work for me and you tell me I'm not answering questions, you're not working for me anymore, but let's not give just an American girl's point of view. Let's hear what a British reporter had to say. What
are you bizarre spectacle
to see, to see two bold leaders muzzled behind the thickest face mounts that possibly ever be made so much.
So it was actually quite difficult to hear anything anyone was saying. I mean, that was the first thing that was absolutely bizarre. And I think, uh, Boris Johnson post, you know, our color chef as yours is a Baden, is that leaders are accountable to the press from all sides and all opinions who've been asked questions and I borrowed was completely stone that the new culture and America, it was supposed to be the leaders of the free world.
Isn't the president doesn't take questions. So Barus decided to sort of prompt you away to try and take a few questions on the white house press team. Didn't like it and protested and said, we're sort of asking ourselves a question here in the UK this morning in a job. It doesn't take questions from journalists and therefore isn't accountable for what he's doing as leader of America and leader of the free.
We have to ask that simple question is he actually fit and proper and competent
to be doing the job
but man, like that, that is such a great question. When the press is a check on the power of the presidency and here you have sort of like, literally like sideline to that check on. Man. That's a huge problem. Who the heck is he accountable to? If the press is supposed to be asking questions for us as the people, you know, digging into issues to let, to let us be aware of it, you know, so that we don't have to trust whatever comes out of Jen sockies mouth as like the, as, as a definition or as a fact, right?
Like, man, we need the press to be there asking hard questions, but that's Michelle, that's the thing though. This, this difference as a leader, are you a figurehead or are you actually a leader? If you're a figurehead, then you're just kind of like the person behind the ink on the signing pen. Right? You do what your
leader, who's their worst.
The figure, head or leader it's it seems like more of, uh, uh, I think dictator may sound strong, but a dictator isn't accountable to anyone but themselves, and we don't want to be there. This is freaking embarrassing, Adam, you know, it was, it's one thing when it's kind of internal and okay. You know, you have Joe up there talking about something that doesn't make sense babbling about the.
It's embarrassing. Just like, you know, you can love Trump all you want, if you do. Okay. But there are some times that the press would play pieces of his, his speech and you'd be like, dude, you have to play it. So the rest of the world can see, but it's like, that's the problem it's like having, you know, that, that embarrassing cousin is fine at, at Thanksgiving dinner, but you know, if you're out and about in public, you're going, oh no cousin, Joe cousin, Joe,
so don't do it.
But it's like, so with him though, if he's a figurehead, that means he's like representing an oligarchy of powerful, of other powerful people that are all kind of telling him to do what they want him to do. Like they put them in power. Like it's amazing. First of all, he was. Uh, that he was even the leader of the primary.
Like that's incredible. Um, we put this guy who's been in politics for 47 years. Um, I kind of feel like it's like old school Soviet system, right? Like you have this, like this ruling, the class of oligarchs who tell you what they want you to do on their behalf. And then you're just like the guy who does it.
I'm not really accountable to anything. You're just, you're just in that position. Um, you can't answer the hard questions cause you don't really know, you know, whereas if you are the leader and you are taking accountability and you are being the president, like frankly, like president Trump was, then you can't answer hard questions because you are the person behind the decision-making process with your advisors.
You're not just sitting there doing what, uh, you know, the, the corporate is the elite, want you to do or doing what? Um, VP Harris and, uh, people like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff think you should do on behalf of their constituents when it's really not on behalf of their constraints.
It's on behalf of the, the elites who fund their operations, the elites behind the scenes that you don't really hear about in the news. But, uh, but they're the ones that are actually wielding the power. It's really
scary. It is, it is really scary and there is no accountability. Um, and another example of that is when Biden had said, look, if you get vaccine, you will not have to wear a mask right now.
I don't have a problem 11 months ago. Yeah. If I, if a president says that and then says, look, based on new information, we're just here to protect people. Uh, we're going to put those masks back on, but that's not what he said. He said, I never said that. Listen, Dr. Parks. And if you want, as you get settled, just push that little red box.
That's not the right one. I don't think that's the right one. All right. Well, I'm not, I'll have to find that nonetheless. He said, I didn't say that. And then there's a soundbite of him saying exactly that. So I think
it was like the second town hall during the election that he said. Uh, if I'm not mistaken, I mean, he, he very clearly said that, oh, well, yeah, if you're vaccinated, I don't think what we're going to mandate the mass.
I don't think that'll be necessary. Uh, VP Harris said the same thing, and now here we are defying science, not even listening to science. It's just so ridiculous.
It is a little bit
at the end of the day, we know that double vaccinated, fully vaccinated people are much more likely to get and also carry the coronavirus
that was even shut down by, by the press.
So that came out of Australia. So I guess what we're really saying, and I don't want to linger on the vaccine and as much as I want to linger on the suppression of. Ideas S uh, experts, speech, uh, the accountability, because wherever you are on your journey of finding out information on the efficacy and safety of vaccines, uh, where we're at with the pandemic, you have to research that yourself, I'm giving you information, um, mostly information you're not necessarily allowed to hear.
And that's difficult. I'm wanting you to know how difficult that is. You know, there've been times where I've been in near tears because, uh, I have an expert on, and you know, that I, I almost exclusively have a list. Interviews, not just someone that's local and we can have those too. I think they're just as interesting,
we have a lot of a list, um, people who have documentation and if they don't do it, I'm happy holding them accountable and asking those hard questions.
I know as my listeners and viewers that ticks you off sometime, uh, you know, you're too hard on him. Why are you asking these questions? Because that's my job. That's what I do. Journalism. It's called journalism. Um, I have had to have an entire account wiped out and start from scratch. That costs a lot of time and money and, um, inconvenience.
It's not easy. I've had friends who have said, you know what? You need to stop, stop talking about this kind of stuff. It's, you know, it's, it's not what they like. And so it's controversial. And so you need to just kind of comply. And if you do, you know, it will be easier. You won't have to worry about being canceled, but I'm compelled to do my job as a journalist.
It's almost your duty as an American to do that, you know, to, to make sure that our future generations are able to live freely and to express their minds and to think a little bit differently and to ask critical questions that do truly lead to better outcomes. I mean, that's fantastic, right?
Because we are allowed to think critically we're allowed to use our minds and Michelle, you know, I, I'm very blessed to do business internationally. I have a very international team and I will tell you, there is no country like America. There is no group of people like Americans, um, and that. I in a way it's kind of dumb luck, you know, but it's truly by design.
Our founding fathers really, really did something special here and it's very unlike the rest of the world. So, you know, when it comes to being canceled yet, it's really freaking frustrating, right. To be cut from Facebook to be canceled by Twitter and YouTube and Vimeo. I mean, you know, you're at, you're asking yourself, okay, well, where do I turn?
You know, like where do I turn to, uh, to find a safe place to host my, my information, whether it's videos or blogs, you know, how do I, how do I continue to do what I do? Um, and to not allow myself to be. Uh, a victim of, well, one self censorship, but then also the, the collusion of a, I think a political movement that wants to do away with everything.
That's fantastic about our free society. Um, and so, you know, there are alternative choices out there to, to the mainstream social media. Right. But, but that's a hard thing too, because you know, a lot of people that are trying to find information or trying to find answers don't know about these competing, uh, marketplaces for ideas.
They don't know where to turn and, and, you know, that's because Facebook spends so much time and money and use so much data to engage the antigen of over 3 billion people in the. And it's, it's really overwhelming. It's, it's a huge beast to come to terms with. And so as, as proud Americans, you know, we have to kind of just keep on fighting and keep on doing what we're doing and asking questions that matter.
Uh, but then also leaning on our legislators and also like looking to local politics, you know, like keeping it close to home. I mean, that's where we can really affect major change. I mean, think about this, the fact that when my wife took me to an amazing live, uh, concert over the weekend to go see the Dan band perform my experience versus what Michelle experienced in Vegas, very, very different.
And, and part of that is a function of, of course federal politics, but also just the, the, the politics on the ground, local politics. If you can
get involved at that, On the ground politics on the ground. When you think about it, what does that mean? How things are played out. If we have a federal government, it's like a leadership determines attitude.
So if you have a federal government that is kind of a bully and they are kind of a bully, um, I'm not disputing that. I want to hear information on efficacies of vaccinations of masks. I want to hear that, but I also want to hear how they may not be working so that we don't give people false sense of protection.
And thus, they're not taking care of what they should be taking care of their immune system. There are people who outright don't know that there is such a thing as an immune system and developing natural response what the living heck, because we're not talking about it. So, what I'm asking you is just logically for just a moment to say, look, if you have adverse ideas, challenging your truths, your truth should not be afraid of that.
It gives you the opportunity, like in debate class, Danny, did anyone ever take debate for crying out loud, where you have to sharpen your ideas? You have to understand war. The other side is coming from that makes your argument stronger. It makes your truth more secure, more, more solid. Um, but we're not talking about it.
It wasn't. A good thing to talk about, uh, voter suppression or some of the wonky things that some people thought happened during the election. Um, now in the Newsome election, I wanted to get to this new story. Uh, they're seeing that people are going in and saying that they voted or going in to vote and they say, ah, you already did.
Now, let me see if this is the right soundbite again, girlfriend just got back from Las Vegas. And so, you know, yeah.
I wouldn't have known,
let's see if this is the right one.
Yeah, that's the right one. So I'm going to turn it up so you can hear it and take a listen. Boom, wait, and take a listen.
Wow. And that was not the only person there that was, uh, just to get a little background. I want to make sure that, you know, this wasn't just somebody off the street. It was Katie L a in, uh, Los Angeles reporting on this because so many people had said, wait a minute, I showed up to vote. And they said they had to do a provisional ballot because they said you have already voted, uh, the, the other weird thing that they didn't report that I'm looking into to confirm I've confirmed from a couple of areas, but, you know, in full disclosure, uh, the majority of these people were registered Republican.
It always sort of blows my mind, Michelle, when I see like media headlines that say, you know, like no proof or no indication of voter fraud, but then like I see a video being shared of, uh, these women and a mail room in a small part of the valley that I used to live. So I used to live in studio city and valley village is where I would get pizza.
Sometimes that was just, just like a short walk north of where I lived. And there's a video of these people in a mail room, stuffing their bags with ballots, um, that they were opening balance and seeing like which one it was for. And they were literally just like stuffing the votes of, of, of. Of the recall election and, and these were like obviously elder votes, uh, into their bags so that they wouldn't be processed.
Well, I mean, no indication or proof of voter fraud. I just saw it on the video.
Well, let's go back for just a moment to the experience I had in Vegas. How hard is it to say, look, you know, this is why we're doing this. This is what's going on, you know, and I know it's inconvenient. Thank you for complying.
No, you may not ask that question. You have to go with the white house. Um, why do you need to know the answer to that? Th or with this situation there, no indication look at what's wrong. Shut up the con the, the, the, the naysayers and say, yeah, there's been some small isolated, weird incidences, uh, where we've dealt with that, but we're confident that, you know, still at least, I mean, I missed back in the day when they would just lie to us and spin
Like literally just like acknowledge it and say, okay, well we've we, we addressed that, but it's below the standard deviation. It's, you know, it's within the margin of error, so no problem. We're not concerned. Or, you know, we identify the source of the fraud, the person's being investigated. Like just acknowledge it.
Don't just try to sit here and say it doesn't exist at all because we see it right in front of us. Um, of course there are always efforts made though to sort of hide the truth from us. Right. I mean, they want us to live on headlines and famous with,
okay. I don't want to be accused of, of doing that. Um, and because, um, this morning, uh, seriously, you know, I'm, I really am fresh in from Vegas.
My last video, uh, didn't play and that's because I had, uh, the outlet that was playing. Um, you did, I want to play this for you, so I'm not accused of the very thing that I'm trying to hold. Uh, Countable for, so let's take a listen and we'll see if we can hear this time.
I'm still thinking, I'm still thinking it's not playing. I will get it for you to prove my point. And in the meantime, Adam, this is where we're in just a really weird area of human history, where we have, um, I don't know, like being a frog in the, in the pot where the water gets turned up and we, sooner or later, you've got to wake up and say, man, it's starting to get steamy in here.
And things are just not right. Um, you know, it, it gets to the point where I shouldn't be the only voice and I'm not, but, uh, the only voice of somebody trying to speak out a little bit of truth and say, wait, there's something going on here. So that's where, uh, issues like this voter suppression thing is such a big deal.
Why are we not hearing about it? And finally, let's play that soundbite. We spoke with several concerned
voters here in
the west, San Fernando valley, who believes something walky had been going on at places like El Camino, real charter high school in Woodland Hills. This place as an early polling location, open 10:00
AM to 7:00 PM daily, but
several people tell us they showed up to vote this morning in the special California governor recall election and were told that computer show they had already cast their ballots.
What happened today? And how shocked are you? Barry? I
went to El Camino high school to go got there at 10 30. Can you read this? And she scanned it and said, you voted. And he said, no, I haven't.
Wow. That explains the two to one ratio of moats for Newsome. You know, it's like, they it's like somebody in his back office.
It's like, how many more do we need? He's like, no problem. We're going to order those right now. Yeah.
But you don't what the thing is, is you don't know, you don't know if this is some kind of conspiracy, if it's because of a organization or the people in power, or if it's an isolated case, you just don't know.
And again, we won't know unless we're talking about it. Um, in the interest of time, I wanted to move on to another couple of big stories. Now, one big story, uh, is what's going on at the border? The border is a huge issue. Um, speaking of people not being required to be vaccinate
My Michelle live podcast,
Hey, thank you for caring. Thank you for digging deeper. Thank you for those of you who are frustrated that the light comes on and you realize that what you're being served up in the news is nothing more than entertainment, unresearched in many cases, inflammatory, without a balanced view, and suddenly, you know, you after sometimes you like it because it feeds into what you believe and what you think.
But somewhere along the line, you go, you know, Some things may not be lining up. And if they aren't, how much of what they say to me is either untrue, uh, spin doctored or outright manipulation. Well, what we tried to do on my Michelle live is not only report on under reported news to get you thinking, but also to dig deeper and find a message of hope, a message of purpose for all of us, the God's story.
If there's a God, what's he doing and all this, and what does he expect of you? And I, we take it on with a little bit, oh, we can review
the news of the week. Reviewing some of the crazy things that have happened this week, man, it seems like we even have to stop our broadcast before it gets too long, because there's so much in the news. Well, my co-host and cohort on the weekend review by my Michelle live is the one and only adamant let's review.
The week the Rez report with Adam was a year.
You say that like a white guy, but that's okay. We love you. And Adam happy Friday. Uh, we're broadcasting live Friday. You will hear the rebroadcast on podcast on Sundays. You can go to my Michelle live in everywhere, all the cool places that, uh, podcasts can be heard, Adam, Hey,
Hey, Hey, I love podcasts because it's just a really nice opportunity to really kind of dig deeper into these issues that really do matter.
You know, it's, it's, it's, it's obviously cool and important to have the occasional, you know, hits on, on radio programs and just kind of sharing, you know, quick five to eight minutes. Of thought, you know, there, but man, we're the podcast. You can really dig so much deeper and there's so much that we have to explore, you know?
And like you said, I mean, a lot happens over a seven day period. And, um, we can probably talk for, for hours upon hours about this, but some
people are, but God bless, you know, there's a lot of good podcasts out there that are trying to get to another side of the story or some inflammatory or some unresearched.
Yeah. But you know, it's called free speech. And again, I don't know why I have to keep reminding us. We have the, the sum, the wealth of human knowledge in our hands that we can just look up and do research for. And yet we're afraid of a little bit of information. Hence ladies and gentlemen, I want to.
Direct your eyes to the canceled hat. Uh, I am still a, well, I am part of the council club. YouTube has taken my videos down for one more week because Adam probably we bought that was my fault. And so we have cause your,
your, your, your commentary, Michelle has been infected by, by COVID thought thinkers talking about it.
You just have to listen and do what we're told. We're not afraid to be canceled. That's
right. I'm going to be sending you a t-shirt. You'll have to message me the size, uh, and, and hat. Uh, we're going to be sending a t-shirt and hat to Carolyn in Indiana. She was posting a, this is, this is great. Uh, she was posting on social media, the exchange that her daughter had concerning the vaccine and it was taken down.
It's like really it's it's kids talking, uh, those kids spreading propaganda. I up one more t-shirt and had, is going out to my guests this Wednesday, Dr. Elizabeth Valeet. Now Dr. Elizabeth bleats is been working with the truth for health foundation and, uh, she was brutally canceled on many fronts, uh, as a doctor and as a specialist in reproductive health,
but must not be as good a doctor.
Dr. Joe, Michelle should not be a Dr. Joe level or Dr. Fowchee status, you know, cause they're apparently like the, the authority on doctors.
Okay. Well, let's talk about that because that leads us into what's happening in Afghanistan, uh, in our news and views program. I was talking with a Lieutenant colonels, uh, former special forces.
He was saying that, um, a lot of the ineptitude, uh, bureaucracy touchy, feely stuff, canceling information is exactly what's led to what's happening in Afghanistan today because we only want to hear what feels good because we are, we're afraid to make the real decisions because we do not allow certain political ideologies or religious ideologies to be challenged.
So we have gotten into a bureaucratic fiasco and people's lives are on the line. And so part of that bureaucratic fiasco, it has ended up with. What was that old saying, Adam, we don't negotiate with terrorists. Oh, that is so 20 years
ago back like Harrison Ford is president and air force one, get off my plane.
Like literally it's like that kind of statement. That's the
old M more now the new coolness, the new coolest is secret deals with the Taliban yeah. Secret
deals. And it's just really Michelle it's par for the course what we've been. Oh yeah. This is totally true. It's par for the course as well. If you look at the last 18 years of what the American public has been told about what we've been doing over in Afghanistan and, you know, Dr.
Fleet versus Dr. Fowchee, right. You know, real versus fiction, um, the narrative versus things that we should really know, these are important differences. And speaking to Afghanistan specifically now, you know, here we are just literally. Less than two weeks away from the, the, the anniversary of nine 11. And we're bending the knee to the Taliban.
We, we have a secret deal in place with them, and this is coming from a CIA chief, a secret deal with the Taliban. And now I think we're quickly figuring it out through, um, through good questions thrown at the Pentagon press, uh, team, uh, about airport security. We, we literally are relying on the Taliban to secure the perimeter around the airport in Kabul.
How did that work for us? How did that work for us yesterday? How
did that for those murders, it means families who are now missing a loved one who should be freaking alive right now. How did that work? You're exactly right. It's a valid question. Right?
So this is a chief non-state department official secretly met with the Taliban leader.
And what did we give them? For this, for this deal, what, what did we get? And what did we give Adam? What, what was the exchange? What was, what was on the table? After our
pants? We, we dropped our pants and said, here we are Taliban. We literally gave them a freaking list of American friendlies, American citizens, green card holders, and SIV, uh, immigrant visa holders.
We gave this list to the Taliban. So here's a list that we gave them, uh, and in exchange for also, I'm sure Michelle, that there's money involved here for sure. Yeah, they're always what they
didn't get enough in the 18 million or billion worth of equipment and weapons, uh, of the sources. It's something that you're going to hear, uh, on my interview with, uh, Lieutenant Colonel Sargus Sakari is that, uh, one of the biggest problems is that the state department, first of all, doesn't have an adequate list that some people who have been friendly, some people who don't have papers are not getting help and rescued.
They're not getting evacuated. There are people who don't want to carry those papers, because if they're caught with them, they will be put to death. Now, answer me this. How does that make sense? We don't want you, you know, we can't get you out, but we have an open border at the south Southern part of the United States of America.
And it's a free. W w I miss no guard guard, guard, Adam, uh, concerning the, the, the virus and that we have a shutdown at the Canadian border where people want to come in and spend money. And, uh, w what we're shutting it down because the CDC recommendations, but on the Southern border, it's wide open. Explain to me how that works here.
How does that work in Afghanistan? So we gave them the names. Here you go. Here's your killer.
Right. And the U S officials from the state department are saying they had to do that because of the security situation, the white house created by allowing the Taliban to literally control everything outside the airport.
We have, we have a defense department official who said to Politico that basically they just put all of those Afghans on a kill list. And it's just, it's uh, it's this is interesting. He said it's appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean. And I imagine a lot of the special forces operators who are on the ground in Afghanistan, we had, we actually had, we had two Congressman go to Kabul, uh, for, for several hours this week.
It was a secret flight. They took over to Cabo to see what was really going on there, it Republican and a Democrat. And they saw just the situation firsthand and they just saw how terrible the situation was. You have people going to the checkpoints, holding their, their green cards, holding their us passports, and then being denied entry by a state department official, you have literally secret missions being taking place by either us contractors or special, special operations teams going into locate people who are in cobble that need to get the heck out of there, taking them to the airport through harms way.
And they'd been turned down by the freaking state department. So I think when I, when I think about lists, I want to know the names of the people in the state department who are impeding our military, his ability to get important people out of Kabul, who are the state department officials that are making those
I want you to think about this, hold up your passport in, in a foreign country where you were under extreme duress and have your country say no, no.
Yeah. Yeah. What was that movie? It was a Vel Kilmer movie, the Saint. And, um, and I remember the, it was a blonde actress from the nineties. She was big name. I just can't think of her name off the top of my head.
Um, but I remember there was a scene where she's like running to the us embassy and the, the marina at the gate. She's like, I'm an American, I'm an American. And they quickly opened the gate to let her in. And then she's safe. Um, I think she was, I think she was running from some Russian mob guys or something like that, but, but can you imagine in Kabul, like that's kind of the experience that these people are kind of going through, they're there they're in harm's way.
They are trying to quickly get the heck out of harm's way. They're running to safety and then being denied entry. Uh, and at that point they're then left to pooling water of sewage that is surrounding the airport. And then as we saw yesterday that that terrible, terrible suicide bombing that took the lives.
It took the lives of 79 Afghans so far. 13 us troops dead 200 wounded. Also I'll just underscore 28. Taliban were wounded as well. And I'll tell you why that's a little interesting here because we're, we're leaving. We're going to be leaving this, this terrible situation in Afghanistan that now I think we'll probably see turn into a civil war.
So the bomb wasn't supposedly it wasn't by the Taliban, the Taliban condemned the bombing. Um, the bomber would have had to go through a Taliban checkpoint, uh, and then obviously approached the airport. They said they were five meters from actually from, from troops, uh, before the bomb went off. But the bomber himself, the group, ISIS, K, they have beef with the Taliban because they don't think the Taliban is extreme enough.
They think the Taliban is too moderate. They think the Taliban is sold out and they think that the Taliban leadership and. I started to enjoy like the lavish lifestyle of living in nice hotels and cutter and, and, uh, ultimately they think that they've kind of gone soft. And so we're probably going to see just a total humanitarian crisis, breakout enough, get us on once we leave something worse than what's already taking place there and it's going to be this it's like, it's like crazy fighting crazier.
I think the Taliban fighting ISIS K um, ISIS CAE is an organization that consists of both Afghani and Pakistani jihadist. And they, they literally terrorize, uh, like sane people and Pakistan and Afghanistan. They attack schools. Uh, they attack, uh, women that are not accompanied by a male, a male escort. Um, they really want to impose the strictest of Sharia law.
To think that these guys view the Taliban as moderate. I mean, that means they're pretty freaking crazy in my book. Um, so, so that's, that's kind of what I see coming forward. And, and as part of that, too, when you have such a hostile environment, there are going to be so many people in Afghanistan that we're leaving behind that according to the world health organization, within days, there'll be out of medical supplies.
Uh, food supplies will diminish the COVID situation is going to continue to be terrible. And so we're just kind of leaving a trail of failure. There really a trail of failure over 18 years where I'm actually, I have the, um, the death count over over 18 years. This is the longest armed conflict that we've ever been in 18 years.
And so since 2000, well, a little more than 18 years, I guess if I'm doing my math. Right. But since 2001. Well, there've been an estimated 157,000 people killed in Afghanistan, uh, of that. Uh, we're talking about 43,000 Afghan civilians, uh, 64,000 Afghan security forces. We're talking about 424 humanitarian aid workers killed 67 journalists and media workers.
Uh, 3,814 U S contractors, 2,300 us military personnel, and about 1100, uh, NATO and coalition troops. So the cost of this war is more than just money. Of course, it's also of course human life. Um, but then also it's our allies ability to rely on us moving forward. We now look like a country that you cannot trust.
When going into a partnership with us, are we going to live up to our end of the deal? Are we going to tell you what's real? Um, these are questions that now I think for the first time, in a very long time, the British parliament is starting to ask themselves, what should we expect from America? Moving forward?
Is America truly the partner that we thought they were, or, or, or should we look elsewhere for a stronger partnership? So no, in the grand scheme of things, we have to continue to foster and preserve our allies and our, and our relationships. And frankly, the existing administration has no interest in that.
They want to push the green new deal. They want to pursue policies that don't make any sense to us, uh, especially in view of an adversary, like the Taliban or China or Russia. Strong men who only understand one thing and that's strength, right? We're sitting here exposing ourselves as snowflakes, as weak, as failures as people that you not only can't trust, but people that you can beat.
And so I think kind of what we're seeing here with Afghanistan, Michelle is just, it's a real tragedy.
It is indeed a tragedy and we are putting ourselves at risk. Look, I'm going to say praise to the U S military. We have learned something in the last 20 years. And, uh, from what some experts that I trust are saying in the next, uh, soft attacks is what we'll be looking at in the next terror attacks, because we are on alert, but are we, I mean, how, how strong are we when we, uh, have no longer.
Come to a place of respect for the military, for our country for crying out loud, you would think that the slice of view that we see in Afghanistan can remind us of what the freedoms that we have are really like what glorious freedoms we have, what it means to be American. Look, I am not dismissing somebody's plight if they are dealing with, uh, bigotry or hatred.
Um, but we kneel at a flag that, that while there is not always Liberty and justice for all, oh my gosh, there's more Liberty and justice than you will experience just about anywhere else in the entire world. And it is a principle that we are, we are looking towards for our future to improve. Look at Afghanistan.
Is that what you want to look like? Is that the ideal? When I look at Afghanistan and you know, on my Michelle live, we look for the God's story. This isn't just about, uh, two worldviews, which by the way, are misunderstanding. And especially this current leadership of bureaucracy, not understanding that worldview and thinking, well, we all have this Western mindset.
Let's just get together and kumbaya we'll shake hands, hold hands, roast marshmallows. And everything's going to be all right. I'll give a little, you give a little, that is not how that world view. Works. And because of that, they spit right in our face. Right. We make a deal. They, they Bama an airport. That's what happens.
But let me just challenge you as you're listening that this goes. Deeper than just a worldview. It is a God view. When you have a, an impersonal God of jihad that must enforce on others. This is what you get. Women raped. Men killed, uh, people who disagree with you. That's the ultimate in canceled. Is that really where we want to go?
Because we're heading in that direction by censoring canceling, excluding people, tearing people down and well, you deserve to die because you didn't take the sh I mean, we have gotten to the ugliest point in America. That's what happens with that kind of worldview. And then juxtapose that with a worldview of a loving God.
Uh, where we understand all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory. What happens then Adam, we have more freedom for people who are on the fringe, more people who don't believe that point of view than anywhere else in the world. So think about that as we look at the news of the week. Go ahead. Oh yeah.
question. And actually I want to read this tweet from a guy who's a, he's a kind of a business influencer. He's an immigrant. Uh, he is a person who was born in Tehran, Iran in 1978. Uh, came to the United States as a kid, uh, served in our us military. And, uh, he he's created a great life for himself as an entrepreneur.
Uh, got him, Patrick . And he had a tweet, um, earlier in the month here that I thought was really interesting and it kind of speaks to, I think, where we are today and his tweet was hard times, create capitalists, capitalists create good times. Good times create socialists socialists create hard times from personal experience.
So here you have a guy who came from Iran, found himself in the great United States of America, a place with opportunity, a place with a lot of resources and tools that you can use to create a great life for yourself. And he saw. Just literally the polar opposite of societies, our society versus one, that's not like us.
And there is no other society like ours in the world. You know, let's just be clear about that. Um, there is only one United States of America. There's only one brightest light in the world and it's ours. And it's one that, that does allow someone to come here from a, a tyrannical, dictatorship, bad country, a place that has no opportunity.
You have to escape that kind of place. You don't just walk out of it. And, and that's what the American citizens and the American friendlies in Cabo right now are being faced with. They have to escape couple. They're not just walking away and they have to escape to a place like the United States of America, where they can follow the basic meritocracy of our system that allows them to live as capitalist and to create good times to create a better situation tomorrow than what today looks like.
And so I think Michelle, we've kind of found ourselves here with a, you know, with, with a lot of. Of of incredible tools that bring the world closer together. And that comes from big tech, the internet, social media, and people are able to exchange ideas really quickly. But if you think about just the poverty rate in the United States, most people that live below the poverty line have internet access, a cell phone and a television.
I mean, just think about that for a second. Cobble flash forward to September 15th, middle of September, or the end of October, the poverty line. There means no food, no medical supplies, definitely no utilities, no freedom, uh, no ability to do anything that you want. And so I think that our, our way of life has allowed a lot of probably younger and maybe a little bit more spoiled people to start to kind of look at our, at our system for what it is and take it for granted.
Well, we don't have an understanding of conflict. I'll tell you. I was walking around the lake with a, a friend that was a college professor, and he's been, he's been doing this awhile. I asked him, you know, well, what's really the difference in, uh, this new crop of kids that are coming in this year, you know?
Um, is there something different between maybe the millennials and those older and gen Z? He said, yeah, here I am a college professor. I may be the first adult, but certainly I'm seeing I'm the first person in academia never has someone in high school. Junior high elementary said something negative. To these children.
He said to these young adults, I should say, he said, you know, I sandwich things. I will sandwich, which means you say something positive, you give constructive criticism and then you end with something encouraging. Right. That's called sandwiching. He said, I sandwich, dude. I say, and still these kids absolute that some will absolutely have a complete and utter breakdown because no one has ever said something negative to them before.
That is what it's coming up. And that's, what's going to be leading our nation.
Literally, you can't have a first, second or third place anymore. It's a participation medal for everyone, you know, like, oh, everyone's the best at it. You can't have everyone be the best at something. You have one person who's the best at something.
Right. You know, it's, it's crazy to think about just, just imagine pro sports. Right. Can you imagine if, if like anybody could be on a pro sports team, just because they, you know what, I want to make those millions of dollars. So, but I'm not good at basketball, but you know, maybe I can just be on the team because it's, it'd be, it'd be more fair if you guys allow me to be on the team.
Just like, I feel like it'd be more fair, but everyone's so caught up in their fields, but it's just so irrational, you know? Yeah. Um, well I
identify as back's unaided, so I wish people would leave me alone.
Well, I can get you a car from Amazon. Get you a vaccination card. That'll that'll get you into those, those fancy New York restaurants.
That's okay. They'll let you go work out at the gym.
Really is astounding. As we wrap up our conversation on Afghanistan. Uh, here we are 20 years later, celebrating nine 11 Adam. Uh, and for those of us who aren't gen Z and remember what nine 11 was staring in front of the television screen, absolutely dumb founded, uh, feeling this sense of, uh, uh, of just more defied off.
Uh, we remember, we remember, uh, the missteps of, of S presidents not going in and just wiping out. Um, we're still dealing with that seed and understanding again, that worldview that I talked about, their worldview. Well, our rural view, we have a big news story and we forget about it yesterday. You know, think of, of the COVID situation.
We've all gone through. We forgot that. They said it's going to be two weeks to flatten the curve. And you know, now it doesn't matter because that's old news. We have the attention span of a poppy looking, getting distracted by a state we can't, but yet their world. Over there is generational. They think in the 50 hundreds, thousands worth of years, they have the waiting game.
And what has it cost us? The toll of this war has been like nothing else. I mean, thinking about that a hundred fifty, one hundred fifty seven people almost, you know, 1.5, uh, I mean, thinking of the thousands of people, 157,000 people have been killed in this engagement, this war in Afghanistan, not to mention the, the financial costs,
the financial cost, the human cost.
And it's impossible not to listen to the gold star families, gold star moms on the news, you know, today and this week. And it's really impossible not to listen to that sincerely and feel something really, um, compelling. You know, it's just, it's not just a really provocative and. Emotional sort of, of result, you know, and, and of course it is, but the service members who have deployed to Afghanistan over the last 20 years, God bless them.
And thank you so much. Um, they, the people I have, I have family and close friends that have been over there and. You know, we haven't had a nine 11 since nine 11. Thank God we, we, we just haven't. And so, you know, I know that the work that our, the sacrifices that our, our citizens that are, that our soldiers, our troops have made to keep us safe.
They're their efforts were not. Uh, I think that our mission obviously was really messed up and we, when we switched over to nation building and obviously a lot of veterans will, will certainly agree with that. Um, and even leaving today, right. We're not going to leave any military, uh, groups as far as I know, to continue to wipe out, uh, terrorists cells as they pop up.
And that's what we, we
sure will leave, uh, lots and lots of, uh, weapons for them to fight against us. Just, just in case, Hey, let me ask you something. As we look at what is happening in Afghanistan, uh, and I'm going to just take the two biggest news stories that. Are on the minds of everyone and in the United States, for those of you who are listening to other places, I would say that this, these are the two news stories, the two news stories that are on most people's minds, what's happening with COVID what's happening in Afghanistan.
And interestingly enough, I think if you look at some of the, uh, interweaving, there's some very telling similarities in these stories that, uh, that are problematic for some of those people who have enjoyed the luxury of telling us what to think and what to do. Uh, many, many people have turned, for example, COVID and vaccines into a political issue.
It is very polluted. Uh, but they've made it, all those Republicans, those conservative Christians, and yet the largest people group to not get vaccinated is black America. They have been telling us for years that black America is all about the Democrat. They, in fact, they say black America voted Joe Biden in and then overwhelming landslide.
So you can't just turn around and tell me now that suddenly this is all about, uh, conservatives that are resisting, you know, conservatives in America. Now I consider myself more of a libertarian. You do, you. I do me, you know, and, and, uh, stand for Liberty, um, for the most. Uh, conservatives in America have taken in, in our recent history, uh, more back-off government where, uh, liberals have taken, uh, let's let's let the government, you know, the, the people who know better than you idiots control everything.
Now, uh, I'd like to get your thoughts on this Adam, where we're dealing with the, the virus. We are seeing loss of Liberty. We're seeing, uh, coercion to, to take this jab. And if you don't believe me, they're telling you that coercion is not happening. Uh, look up what coercion means. Look up what coercion means.
It is putting you in a position where you have to make a tough choice in order to decide whether or not you're going to take this job. It's coercion, whether you agree with the vaccine and think it's a good thing or not, it is an, and it is infiltrating into our midst and taking away freedoms. People are
looking at that, uh, and position mandates things that people are not basically asking for things that are being mandated like the, the whole do, as I say, not as I, as I do things is, is really typical of those who are coercing.
And if you look at some of the commonalities.
Here's an Afghanistan. And now also the, um, the, the, the failures that we're seeing now, uh, in respect of the COVID pandemic, corruption is a huge part of this and what creates corruption, right?
Misinformation, money, corruption, misinformation, canceling now in Afghanistan as well. We're seeing some of the same patterns.
We didn't share information. We, we, we do this touchy, feely kind of a thing. We're telling you what to think. We're counseling out other voices. It's not okay to say this it's politically incorrect. So in both of these things, we're seeing how it is starting. We're starting to see the foundation of this ideology that has run rampant in America.
Absolutely. Well, so I don't know if you've caught wind of the, so this, this, uh, writer, Craig Whitlock, uh, he released something in the Washington post of all of all publications recently. Um, and it was this, uh, it was like it was coverage of this $11 million, uh, study called the lessons learned study.
That basically was a series of lots of interviews with about 600 us officials with really, really close ties to everything in Afghanistan, from three presidents to the lowest level, um, diplomat. And we spent Michele $300 million every single day for 20 years, $300 million a day for 20 years in Afghanistan.
And the lessons learned project revealed that something like 30 to 40% of that money. Was fraudulently used. And so the reason why this, this situation in Afghanistan has failed so terribly as because of the corruption that we were, that we allowed to grow like a virus within the nation that we tried to build in Afghanistan.
Um, the, the generals and the, the, anybody with a gun in leadership would take money and with money, they would take power that wasn't theirs to take. And so now here we are in the U S with COVID, right. And we're seeing how people are using really just fear and money to take positions of power within.
Political structures. And a lot of that is tapping into the private sector of our country to use like social media, as a communication outlet for propaganda and tapping into a third party fact checkers. And, you know, it's just follow the money. Right. And you can see that those third party fact checkers that represent themselves as unbiased.
Well, it turns out that they're actually not quite so unbiased. Um, Michelle earlier, I shared with you this, uh, this thing I came across called, uh, big tech funding.org, and there's an organization called the American principles project. And they've been looking at, you know, left and right groups, conservative groups.
Um, and when I say conservative, I mean like the heritage foundation, the Federalist society, Republican governors association, but then of course also groups on the right and the far sorry, on the left and the far left. And what they try to do is they're trying to create more transparency in the information that we see and what the source of that information might really be.
And so big tech funding.org created this app. It's a browser extension that you can basically add to your browser. And when you're on Twitter, it will, it will basically tag and show you leveraging publicly available data. It'll show you, you have the Twitter accounts that are out there where the money comes from.
So, uh, political leaders, organizations, it's a really cool tool. And so, yeah, check out big tech funding.org, and you know, a lot of the data that it's using, stuff that these organizations have to publicly disclose. But when you look at the name of these organizations, You know, you don't really think about where that money might come from.
You just hear some, some kind of vague, uh, nonprofit name, like the American greatness foundation or the American greatness project or something like that. You know, you're just like, oh, American greatness. It must be good. Um, when in fact then you learn that maybe it's tied to, you know, and I don't know, I'm not speaking to that as an organization specifically, just an example here, but then you learn where the money comes from and you realize that they actually have an agenda.
And so why are they spreading the kind of messaging that they're spreading? Well, it's because they have an agenda and they're trying to basically impose that agenda on us. So yeah, don't, don't
ever believe what you say, head up fact, checkers on Facebook and YouTube and other social media. It's the same kind of thing, huh?
Exactly right. I've been edible.
Listen to that. They have an agenda, right? Is Google fund that third party fact checkers. Why does Facebook fund them? Oh, wait. Facebook's non-partisan unbiased. Uh, third-party oversight board is funded by Facebook. I mean, come on. Like, if, if, if, if an organization is paying your bills and paying your salary and you're supposed to be critical of them, don't you think you're going to be a little bit nice to them?
A little bit soft. Yeah.
Well, let's talk about, uh, uh, hip piece on Larry elder, um, that as we start to see foundation's crack let's, let's take that on.
Oh my gosh. Did you hear that? Um, Larry elder, right? He's a, apparently a white supremacy. Explain that to me. Okay.
I will, I will explain that to you. They have, uh, some of I'm going to find some of this.
Okay. So Larry elder. Yeah. Larry elder. Um, he has, um, talked about global warming as a PA a myth. Um, he has established the medical establishment as being someone that you should question go figure.
So according to the LA times, it doesn't say the N word, right. They literally criticized how he has made actual verbal references to that terrible racist term of the N word because of the, the way he pronounces the last, like two letters of that word.
Uh, he says, he, he says earth and not up. Oh my God. That's why he's like, are you kidding me? Because the guy I can pronounce words. He's he's a white supremacist. He's like, it just, it just, it's such a ridiculous, well, and he offered
no push back. I'm reading this, I'm reading this. Let's say he offered no pushback.
When a doctor last month called into his nationally syndicated radio show and suggested that COVID 19 vaccines were dangerous. He didn't offer any pushbacks. He just let the guy talk. He should've canceled
him. He must be racist. Then he is
racist. That's why
it's just such garbage. You know, here you have a, an actually like seriously good contender for the governorship in California.
Someone who really wants to turn that data around someone who I think he's is his position on things is very clear. He's been on the radio for a long time. Uh, he's a well-spoken well-educated guy and go figure. We already see. Uh, exercises and ballot fraud taking place in California, people are already freaking out.
Governor Gavin Newsome is freaking out because he knows that Larry elder could very well find himself taking that position as governor Gavin Newsome is basically pleading with people with really got a bunch of bobbleheads of people that people just kind of say yes to whatever he's saying or asking.
Um, it's like, he's talking to a bunch of friendly litters of like, yeah, whatever you say, Gavin. Yeah. We're, we're going to be there for you. Um, he's not talking to the people that he's driven out of the state. He's not talking to the business owners that he's basically driven out of business. He's not talking to the center.
He's not talking to the, to the right. He's only talking to his inner circle and to the far left. And, and as a matter of fact, I think that might be why he could very well lose his seat as governor. He can get ousted,
California can continue down the path that they're in. And I, you know, if that's what they want to do, I think it's, it's absolutely fine.
It gives us reference to what works and what doesn't work. I mean, we've seen that in other cities, I was talking with a guest this last week, Chicago, you know, you could see, um, you can see just on different sides of a border, uh, what difference uh, politics can make when one is broke and the other is flourishing.
What's going on? It's we can look at that in what's happening in Florida while, uh, the media is just. Be rating Florida and even manipulating the numbers to tell a story that just isn't quite what's going on. Uh, it's not that we, we look, we look at what's happening in Florida and, uh, it's being demonized and yet their actual numbers are really no different.
Thank California where COVID is concerned.
You mentioned Chicago right last week in Chicago alone, three mass shootings, seven killed 39 wounded. I mean, you talk about polar opposites, right?
Well, that's because we have too much policing. We have too
rights. Yes. Too many policing and, and a place where the gun laws are about as strict as they get.
Um, yeah, we have too many too much policing.
If you just continue to ban guns, criminals will finally get the message and say, you know what? This is, this is wrong. And that they won't go to community counselors and they will have a one. One of those, see, like we were doing with the Taliban that worked right.
It'll cook by all roasted marshmallows. This is where our world's going to be. Look we're following world people. Not everybody wants to by, uh, it's. It's crazy.
Not everybody can dance, like bill de Blasio at times square, when it's all shut down, you know, not everybody can go to the fancy French restaurant, Gavin Newsome, not everybody can go to a fancy salon, like Nancy Pelosi.
Like, let me get that salon private, please, you know? Oh. And then it's just, it's just like, it's just such ridiculousness. Right? And I think about, well, I guess a couple of words come to mind. Dereliction of duty, right? Dereliction of duty, Lori Lightfoot, Gavin Newsome, you know, Gavin Newsom's argument to like to keep him as governor was well, guys, If I was, if, if I weren't governor Kamala Harris would have never been.
Uh, given, given that seat in the Senate, she never would have been vice president. If I wasn't governor, this never would have happened. Well, I mean, speaking of dereliction of duty, right? She, she barely showed up at the border. She was, she was like at border extended, you know, she was like, well, I'll get there for the photo op maybe.
Okay. But now she says in the last couple of weeks that she's going to get it. Bottom of the problem and what it really is is those, you know, those second rate people and south American countries that aren't as smart as us and, and not as good as us and not as able, uh, we're going to deal with their poverty, which, you know, okay, that's great, uh, dealing with some of the issues there, but how about, uh, protecting our border and keeping some of the dangers out of the United States of America?
Uh, look when we have too many bureaucrats, uh, we have too many monkeys running the circus. So we are in a place where we are dealing with crazy. Um, the Supreme court, by the way, reinstated the Trump stay in Mexico order. That was kind of an interesting, uh, new story this week. Speaking of.
It had to happen, had to happen, you know, it's, it's, we're, we're talking about now.
Okay, well, we have this, this tragedy, this awful situation in Kabul, and we're going to now bring immigrants in and people that really need to escape parent, we're going to bring them into the country. Now, noting that we still have like 200,000 people per month coming flooding across the border with these COVID infection rates of, was it 30% I think is what we saw last week or so per, per, per, per, per month or so.
Um, it's got to stop, right? It's got to stop. I was talking to my uncle and the situation on the border here in south Texas is absolutely dire. I mean, it's a hot situation and you're not hearing about it on the, on the, in the media or on the, in the news. Uh, and certainly Kamala Harris didn't, didn't go to, to see what's actually happening.
Um, we had two congressmen who went to Kabul to see what was going on this week, put themselves in harm's way to make sure that they understood the situation. VP Harris is staying as far from that as possible, but, but she calls it. A priority. Um, nothing that she says as a priority is actually a priority to her or her or, or Biden's administration.
The border is not
a priority to you. Listen to what they say, look at what they do. Let me tell you a real story coming out of Texas, uh, while visiting there recently, um, in a beautiful little neighborhood south of Houston, one morning, uh, a dead body was found just in a field next to this. I mean, beautiful little upper middle class, maybe neighborhood, um, astounding, you know, the kind of field that kids play in what was going on.
Well, what people in the area have said is that oftentimes what you see is people that have come into the country with. Assistance of some of the cartel, the cartel owned them. They don't just pay to get across the border. They don't just pay for that passage. They pay for the rest of their life. They are owned and if they do not pay, they take it out in blood, in your neighborhoods.
Now that's in Texas. Oh, what do we care about? Texas? They're hardly vaccinated anyway. Uh, but, but it is infiltrating into the rest of America. As we plane and bus people into a neighborhood near you. So while you're coming down on your neighbors and your friends, because they're not, they're not wearing their mask or they're not vaccinated and they don't care about people and people's lives.
We are busing people in by the thousands to your neighborhood who have not been screened for COVID, who probably haven't been vaccinated, who don't really necessarily care if they are or not. And have a nice, cute little connection to the cartel. So you tell
me. Well, it's not just the cartels with the, with those trying to come across the border.
It's also the way the cartels are interacting with American citizens. And we're not just talking about adults. We're talking about teenagers as well. They're using teenagers as a tool. They're paying teenagers cash to be coyotes, to transport people. Once, once they're on the U S side, Hey, I need that teenager to get this group of people from a to B.
So they're the cartels, employing our kids to move people, to move drugs, to move weapons, to move cash. You know, it's, it's, it's, there's so much other stuff that happens on the fringe.
So much other stuff that happens. Let's bring it full circle to what we were talking about at the beginning of our show today.
And that is the terror. Terrorism that's happening in Afghanistan. You've got an open border with people who hate the United States. I feel now that we have no strength. Yeah. And we will just lie down and take it. Don't tell me that there's not a concern there, but what the concern really is is what we consider terrorism as nine 11 as approach the white house had.
This was a, this is an older story, uh, had said that we have to be careful of, uh, domestic terrorism. You know, the kind of people who, uh, believe that maybe Trump was elected, uh, the kind of people that aren't vaccinated. I mean, we're talking about normal Americans.
Michelle was actually before we started today, I got a text from my brother-in-law and this is something that I want to report back on next week.
But it's the text alone, scared the crap out of me. And basically to your point about all of those people that supported Trump or all those people that maybe didn't support Trump, but just didn't support Biden. Right. They just, there was, I don't know, man, maybe somebody different, any so influencers news, personalities, Michelle sand.
Yeah. Um, influencers, news, personalities, uh, politicians, and now also congressmen people on Twitter, uh, are, are basically now being targeted for a subpoena from the far left Democrats in Congress. They want everyone's personal data, every text, every phone call every time.
Yeah. This is news. This is news from this last week, the FBI, by the way, has not been able to establish a plan insurrection on January 6th.
Let me repeat that and give you more information. The FBI has not, not been able to establish the plan insurrection on January 6th, this in, despite despite all of the media referencing the labeling of the media, the vast majority of charges, concern, trespass, unlawful parroting, uh, there is an absence of a major insurrection or sedition prosecution, and, um, there's been little done to.
Rain in the media is reporting of look, if they want to report that this was an insurrection that, that this was sedition. What do they, what, why did we call what happened in my town, Seattle, Washington, when they said this is an autonomous zone, no more. We're not taking brules from anybody. We have complete autonomy here.
Why weren't they calling it that? Why was that called the summer of love? When there were little, there were young men who were killed, not by, not by the radical right, going in, but by their own, they were eating their own. And for m
My Michelle live podcast.
Hey, welcome. Welcome. Welcome it is my Michelle live. I'm Michelle Mendoza. This podcast, uh, has been birthed through a long time of broadcasting, um, radio broadcasting, and even on podcasting. With one purpose in mind is to get to a deeper story to offset what is often happening in all of the media, regardless of if you're listening on the right hand or left hand of the dial, oftentimes you will hear things that aren't substantiated.
Uh, they're just news releases of the press has changed and they are also just entertainment. Giving you a titillating information and trying to get their ratings up. Not necessarily getting too. The real story. And even more importantly, the God story, we dig deep and ask the question. If there's a God, what's he doing in all of this and what does he expect of us?
Well, honesty might be one of those things. Are we really getting it? We take on the news of the week, every single day. Weak at this time, looking at what's happened, the big news stories and the things that you aren't hearing about, we call it the Riz report. The reserve report with Adam was a year old.
This report. Why? Well, because I'm joined by my co-host Adam . Now I'm starting to say it like big voice guy. Sorry.
man. So we got
You know, we, we, I guess we're,
maybe this mixture of, of entertainment, man.
we got canceled on YouTube. I have one strike left and if I. Offend them in any way, which are always so ambiguous. You don't know what could possibly offend them. A friend of mine actually on social media, they own a gym and she had a post that was basically showing a picture of, um, grapefruit. And it said, if you replace your morning coffee with a glass of grapefruit every day, you have a 95% chance of eliminating any more joy that you have in your life.
Right. It was just kind of a joke. Right. And it was taken down because of, uh, Facebook standards on, in, yeah. On, on body shaming kind of things. I don't know. I think that's what it was, but she's like really. Book really? Um, so you don't know why you're being canceled. If I get one more strike here with my Michelle live, my YouTube channel goes away.
So this is important for you to note, as you are watching today. Brings you back
th th to realize that it can just be anyone. We don't know why. If you. I would like to see the show. You can still see it because we have other accounts. Um, I may be canceling YouTube for the most part. Really I'm using Vimeo. I, uh, have, uh, uh, other, your, wherever. You may be seeing this, uh, but you can also go to my Michelle live and you can see our broadcast.
So it's not completely taken down, but if you have experience. That same thing. Then you can be part of the cancel club. That's right. Go on really well with my headphones, but here you go. We want to hear,
I'm not, I'm not gonna say that, you know, hiring.
a little intro going away and we are
establish. So, you know, that's why YouTube, by the way.
be there for forever, you know, give you a shout out and he can give them time. And certainly, you know, I've experienced that.
not done a lot of work. No, no, no, no. Just like a tall
and you know, so you find that that with, with, with, uh, just heavy, heavy, heavy, a lot of
Yeah, you can't can't get specificity or just constantly refer back to the terms and conditions of their, their community guidelines. And you ask them within those guidelines.
what did I do wrong? And Michelle Sharp, you have no idea exactly what it was about our client specifically. And that's the problem specifically? The fact that there is such a, a lack of transparency. There is so much. Um, to, to the entire process. So
Big problem. If you're giving money, especially to YouTube, if you're subscribing, if you're giving the money and you do not have customer service or customer customer support or reasons, that's a huge problem. That's pretty darn frustrating, right? I mean, If you have cable and your cable doesn't work as miserable as it can be to go through the chat, you at least can talk with someone.
Um, look, if you have been canceled, you remember you can contact us at my Michelle live. Uh, every week we're going to pick a cancel. Listener viewer or reader to send our canceled clubs, shirt, and hat to, uh, to just commiserate. So we want to hear from you and we'll be announcing our council club, uh, when there is a little later, um, this is what's crazy.
I was, I been canceled on, on YouTube. Uh, one of my videos on Facebook, just as a post where I was posting. A doctor, uh, that was talking microbiologist. I believe he was talking about our immune system and how, when children are born, uh, they do not have a developed immune system. They have to crawl on the ground.
They have to put things in their mouth to expose themselves. He said, we need to expose our immune. And if we're held up in our homes and we're sanitizing all the time, when we finally get out, our immune system is going to be crap and we're going to get sick. Facebook took that down. They said that people will not be able to view this because our independent fact checkers that found that this, that the information you're.
Sharing is partially untrue. I'm like, okay, what part is not true? Yeah. Little gen gen Z kid. Who's maybe out of college, not a virologist, not a microbiologist. Not. Or just, you know, someone somewhere has decided that this is partially untrue, really. Okay. So you tell me what is truth? Well, they will say it is the we're going to go with the, maybe the CDC we're going to go with, you know, the government, you know what, if you do not challenge those people, you don't know that what they are saying.
Is indeed true. That's what free speech is all about. However, let's get into some of the news stories today. Uh, what is a lie? On social media, the Taliban, Michelle and Adam penciled the Taliban. Well that's okay. Let's talk about female, mute away lesions. Let's uh, try to, uh, talk about world domination and the mass killing of many people.
That's fine. That's fine. But oh yeah. Let's talk about how women have to cover up every, every day. You know, it's just it's so
uh, some, some, some, some representatives Facebook or Google or Twitter and they're
daily vacation texts companies. And so finding that guidance is
So you politicians with those who are running these companies.
spreading hate. Um, or we, we believe that if our politicians are controlling those decisions that, that big tech
here are on our ground.
the Taliban man on Twitter. And at least
Uh, they use the
professor all week, um, in front of her, in front of my microphones, Twitter. And, and, and, and they're trying to use this to establish for their soon to be totalitarian government and
to protect their interests that's last week. And there was side by side protests. Uh, ask us for their right work, you know, and so one of the earliest
literally inconclusive. That was the word from, uh, and, uh, in negotiations between tele-health theaters. Um, same way we have
among other, other terrible things. It's just, it's such a joke. It's such a joke. When, when you look at it, In
on, designated global because of that. Facebook and Google do not allow the tele-health in their platforms specifically, but little, little drivers. I'm not for sure what the deal is with the Taliban.
I'll be real controversial here. I'm going to say as heinous as that is, if you're going to have it on there, you should at least have consistently. Right. Do you hear what I'm saying? You shouldn't be canceling someone because they're saying, wait, isn't it, isn't this a vaccine still unproven and why are we doing this?
And, uh, here are some of the facts that people are saying, but that gets counseled. Or, or when we were seeing people getting canceled, because they said. COVID center in Wu Han. And now in Wu Han, this COVID 19 is coming out. Is there a connection I canceled? You should, you know, either you allow everything or you have consistently.
Oh, no problem.
posting good content, good content. And I'm going to say bad content, too. Uh, extreme content sometimes, uh, conspiracy theories, but thing is conspiracy theories. Their ideas. Why are you afraid of ideas? Just, just allow people. I mean, we have the wealth of human knowledge right here at our fingertips. Tell me why we can't research it ourselves.
Well, yeah, I mean, it was the Washington post series, not even 10, 10 months ago saying, Hey, Google, on this source of the Corona virus, literally
garbage. We can't talk about it. And now here we are, August is 2021. And that looks like that's what . Yeah, probably did come coming from the one that's definitely, I'm going to stop you there for just a moment. Uh, Adam, I guess we're having technical difficulties. And so what I would like to do is use this as a tease and see if we can, uh, take a break and, uh, we'll start live streaming again and just.
My Michelle live podcast.
Yes, it is the, my Michelle live podcast. Thanks for joining us today. I'm Michelle Mendoza. If you are. Frustrated that all the news doesn't get reported. That there's a big section of the news that gets left in the cutting room floor. We like to look at stories that are sadly underreported, right? And we go deep.
We look for what we call the God story. If there's a God, what's he doing in all of this and what does he ask of us? It's a deeper story, a deeper call and something that can change our lives. So at the end of the week to celebrate getting through another crazy news week, we take on some of the news stories with our friend Adam rosary, and we call it the Riz report.
So, uh, welcome Adam. I'm glad to have you with us today. And you know what, let's just celebrate, let's review the week report with Adam bruise a year
and say, Hey, let's, let's do this buddy. Let's do this. How are you doing?
Hey, we made it through another crazy week. I, uh, sometimes things, um, just seems so surreal. Um, you know, I, I'm going to try my best to be really balanced in some of the things that are going on out there. Um, I have found that there are things that really are not being reported and because they're not being reported, people assume that they're not true.
It's as though we either didn't take history. In our class in class, right in school, or we just forgot, it just like leaked out of our brains because we were too concerned with other ridiculous things. But we forget that that is what people empower and, uh, regimes have done they've controlled information.
And if you control information, you control the people. Uh, so getting more of the information out is important. So as you're watching today, and as we go into our reserve report today, uh, just keep that in mind and know that we try to research these stories to make sure that we're not just giving you fake news.
Um, and it's, it's important that we hear the whole story. So what's, what's a big story that you want to take on today. I mean, I can't help, but follow the. Almost reality show heir of Cuomo and his resignation. That's a big one, Cuomo.
Well, they don't all the governor Cuomo, my goodness, Michelle. You're right.
There's, there's so much to kind of touch on so much. That's happened this week and you know, it basically all started right after we wrapped our show last week, you know, like from the, from like the, the drop of the, of the hour, just boom weekend time. Oh my gosh. Stuff's going on Cuomo last weekend, you know, we go from the sheriff and, and, and New York literally announcing this criminal investigation and Tacoma's sexual misconduct allegation.
And just going from there to then Cuomo's number one, aid resigning from her position, she was kind of one of the ones who was responsible for making a lot of his past scandals sort of go away. Those scandals being both the sexual allegations or the sexual misconduct allegations. And then also the, the nursing home reporting issue with COVID like that was kind of a big deal.
Um, and so much of what we kind of have seen play out with Cuomo specifically, and we have so many other things to talk about beyond Cuomo, but you know, we're, we're talking about a guy who. Has kind of grown up with like this, just like everything being given to him, his dad was governor. He grew up with really just no hardship.
And he just kind of, kind of lived his life with this level of entitlement. I'm entitled to this, I get that. I deserve this. And you know, the people in power around him, his party they've really worked to sort of protect him and protect his rise to what it became. But also here we are now at a point where they're sort of cannibalizing him too, which is kind of funny to see they went from awarding the guy, an Emmy award less than a year ago for how, for how he handled his COVID press conferences, uh, too.
His brother at CNN, you know, basically just kind of having lovey-dovey bro, talk with him and also encouraging him from his position at CNN to basically, uh, defy or be defiant towards the sexual or ask them allegations, but then also to not resign, um, no, no impartiality there. Right. And so to now finally see Biden and Schumer and others, and the democratic elite now say, you know, Hey Cuomo, like what you did was wrong.
You've got to step down, man. Even Alec Baldwin was tweeting about the fact that, uh, what, what Cuomo has been up to has been not okay. Uh, and there are, so it's kind of like the Dems are eating their own. Um, and rightfully so, but, but this goes back. I think a lot of things.
Can I just say lad? Uh, thank you.
Because, uh, what we've often seen as kind of a, well we'll look the other way, it's a, it's a mindset that people have. It's not, um, it's not a left wing ideology as much as it is a human failing when we are. When we have an idea and it's right, we have this, the ends justify the means mentality. Well, they're a good person.
And, and I like to look the other way, but there's a whole truth there. If we're not looking at it, we are sadly, uh, selling ourselves short, go
ahead very much. And you're also potentially destroying the credibility and the futures of these women who have come out against Cuomo, you know, like Lindsey Boylan, uh, she had a very credible position and a very credible story that the media tried to just first of all, ignore.
And then secondly, just destroy her, uh, her personnel file. She says that that was leaked. Uh, in an effort to sort of just smear her name and, you know, the, the things that, that really do matter, the, the, the experiences that these victims have, have kind of brought to light. This is stuff that the big, the biggest news organizations out there, NBC, ABC and CBS have continually ignored, just, just brushed right past it.
Um, and it's not just the sexual harassment situation or situations 11 of them, but it's also the true toll of the nursing home fatalities than New York. You know, you have the media on one side saying, oh my gosh, this guy has done such a great job for the people of New York. He is an example of how to lead through COVID, which is just laughable because he.
Just look a little bit deeper, right? And you see the media research center measuring only a hundred minutes of actual coverage around the stories that matter, like the fact that Cuomo's office was basically preventing New York state health officials and legislators access to actual death toll numbers from nursing homes, the idea that you could take a COVID positive elderly person and then put them into a nursing home population where people are not sick is just fricking insane.
And the results from that was a lot of human death that didn't have to occur. You know, like these are people's grandparents and fathers and mothers and family members that, that have that. They met the matter right there, every single one of these lives matter. Um, but the media didn't really care about that.
And so to finally now see, uh, Going where he should go, which is to the unemployment office. Um, frankly, it's good to see. It's funny though,
because see a meme, I did see a meme that had a suggestion for Cuomo for a new job using his groping skills. He might get a job with the TSA. So that
is so good. It's so good.
Yeah. Maybe we will see him at LaGuardia. I don't know. You know, they're like, oh man, like just put me through the nudey machine. Really? I don't care. They're not the strip track, the strip search, but you know, it's this, it's these positions of entitlement and privilege that have sort of allowed people like Cuomo to be who they are today.
Just imagine this the same, the same days when Cuomo was signing his $5 million book. Uh, we're also the same days that the nursing home, uh, data was being hidden from, from lawmakers and legislators. And, and of course the media sources that, that did tutor a report on them on that particular topic. Um, you know, so there's blood on this guy's hands.
He has not been an example of how to lead through COVID. Uh, I think New York and California have been the two worst examples for how to lead a state through COVID,
you know, that's a good point, but what's, what's frustrating though, is that. This being a new virus a year and a half ago. Um, the, the idea that, well, this is the, you know, this is the gold standard of how we do it.
You don't what you, you let the proof be in the pudding, right? If Florida wants to say, you know, we're going to take a hands-off approach, we're going to treat this, like we do the flu, you know, and with more education, we're going to say, if you have the flu, if you've got COVID freaking stay home. I mean, all of us we're going to work.
You know, it's not coming out of our nose. Uh, you know, coughing everywhere. Uh, now we've learned, Hey, we can work from home. There's been some good things that have come out of this era of this very bad era we've learned. Right. And so if you want to be like Florida and you want to say, okay, no matter. You don't get vaccinated if you want to, uh, fine.
If you want to be like California and not allow businesses to operate, to treat people like they're second class citizens, you know what, that's fine too. That's your state. And if it really, really works well, then you know those of us and you, you know, I'm one of those people that tends to be more like a Florida mindset.
Okay. But you know, what if California really does work and people's lives are saved and, uh, people are happier. There's fewer suicides, uh, businesses find a way and you know, we're doing better. By all means. I've got to eat my words because if we don't have all the truth reported, tell me what you think about this.
If we don't have all the truth reported out of them, then we will never grow and we can never hold people accountable. Giuliani is an example to me of what happens when you have power, unrestrained and unchecked, you cannot demand things to be better in the same instance, vaccines. If you don't report everything that's going on in some of the dangers, you will never demand of big pharma to make things better.
Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
Yes. That's that's exactly right. And in a lot of studies are coming out and saying, well, if you have these vitamin D levels, you're probably going to be fine. You know, there there's there's out there.
Yeah. Let's hear it. You know, I had COVID right. So, uh, people who get vaccinated have, um, can go and get an antibodies test and the average person will have, uh, a 50 level four for antibodies.
Right. Let's be a 50, whatever, you know, that's the average, um, after having COVID. 16,500 after having COVID. Yeah. And I I'll find this, but there's a new study. I'm the math guy, but that's a huge difference. Huge difference. Let me say, I appreciate
that. It would quantify just how huge that
Yeah. I want to share this story with you. That there's been studies that have said that if you've had COVID, you'll make antibodies. A lifetime. I'm going to get that up on the screen. I think, let me see. It's not working here so that way everyone can see it. If you've had COVID, you'll probably make antibodies for a lifetime because people like me who recovered from cases, you know, and we're the, when they say mild, that means I'm not in the hospital for a week.
I'm not risking being on the ventilator. Uh, but apparently those of us who have, have bone marrow cells that can just pull it out the antibodies for decades and they think possibly for a lifetimes, uh, they say viral variance could dampen some of the protection may be, but if, again, if you are, have a stronger immune system, when you get those variants, then you have even more.
Antibodies. I think we have forgotten somehow in a year and a half. Uh COVID one of the strange side effects is that it's a causes your brain to forget what you've learned, what we know about history, what we know about our bodies, uh, immune system. So it's, it is a little bit crazy. And I wanted to mention that as we talk about Cuomo, because as some of the reason that he's been so insulated is because of COVID and him having the right stance, how did they become a right stance?
It's health? How did they, how did, why do we have to politicize everything? And yet it is
everything that was quote the right stance, you know, um, shoot just 10 months ago now. Well fake news, right? I mean, it's just, it's a total flip flop of fact from fiction. And, you know, I guess, I guess that's why, when you look at states like Florida in particular, a state that has one of the largest senior citizen populations in our country and for good reason, it's a great place to retire.
Florida is gorgeous and man, there's pretty darn good. Yeah, exactly cheap. But you know, the value of dollar goes farther than, than what it's going to go in California in New York where the government is taxing, you know, a strong percentage of each dollar that you have in your pocket. So, you know, you look at a state that actually relied on science and allowed them.
Really this debate to operate under as much freedom as, as was possible. The time, uh, people were outside at the beach, enjoying the sun, um, people were taking necessary, but reasonable precautions, people were not locking down and just totally destroying their businesses and then their, their own mental health, you know, overall the entire country, a third of all small businesses shut down.
Small businesses are a huge part of what make our country fantastic. It supports the middle class and strong ways. Um, and we need a big vibrant middle class to be a great diverse country. Um, and so, you know, when you, when you see the president, maybe, maybe forgetful, this is one of his side effects, because I think he was kind of claiming to forget the name of DeSantis, right.
He was like, oh, a governor who. Governor freaking DeSantis, man, one of the most powerful governors in your country, and one of the guys
do it. He needs to step aside. You need to step aside and I don't have the sound I wish I did, but DeSantis was like, I'm not stepping aside when you're trying to shut down businesses.
I'm not stepping aside. We can talk a little bit more about that. I'm surprised he didn't get canceled, uh, because a popular Senator that did, but we will, we'll get to that in just a moment. Um, I wanted to talk about, as we wrap up our conversation about Cuomo and his resignation, just for a little balance, uh, true story.
It isn't just about. Those on the left, it's just that they can become under-reported. Uh, there is a us Senator from Florida, and as we've been talking about Florida, that's being investigated by the FBI over, um, some staff, photos used in sex trafficking, pro uh, probes, um, just a real, a real disappointment there, you know, I mean, crazy stuff.
Right. Um, we have, uh, some things that, that get a lot of reports, Giuliani telling DOJ agents. It was okay to lie on campaigns who said it's okay to throw a fake. So the reason I wanted to bring some of this up is because it is. Not a left wing, right wing. We can, we can fall into the trap of saying, look at what the left is doing.
Look at what the right is doing. Um, sometimes we'll report a lot of things going on, uh, that the media tends to lean left. And so you'll hear us report a lot of things that are reported or thrown out that, that people aren't talking about right. At them, because it's not there. So we want people to be able to hear it.
It's literally being counseled on YouTube and Facebook and Twitter, other social media. Sites, um, it's being spun. The story that I told you about that immunity for a lifetime, the New York times picked that up. However, they turned it into a Provax thing somehow, uh, that, okay. You know, there, you should report both sides and report it with, with integrity.
So I wanted to bring up those stories to say that this is a human nature issue, you know, sexual indiscretion, uh, making bad choices, not having accountability, thinking that your empower and using your power in, in horrible ways. I don't care who you're associated with. It is a human nature issue. Having said that.
If the media isn't truly taking it on and they give you a pass, then there are people who stand as victims in the wake and you see this kind of rapper bait mindset that happens when, uh, okay. We'll use hunter Biden as an example. Oh my gosh.
Crazy, crazy, crazy hunter Biden, man, just and in first of all, with, with New York though, I'm just going to wish Kathy hall called the Lieutenant governor of New York.
She's about to be the first woman governor of the state of New York. Uh, she's a Democrat, obviously she's at 15 months left on this term. Let's see how she does starting with day one. But, but from that right from right now, you know, just wishing her the absolute best and we'll see where that
goes. I hope that I can really turn it around and I hope, you know, I hope that with all of the outlets, like my Michelle life, we're here trying to get the word out, the things that people aren't hearing.
Right. I hope that as we continue to have a strong voice that pretty soon, uh, the, the mainstream media will go, oh wow, we're losing listenership. We're losing viewership. We're losing readership. And they are, and they'll start going back to the integrity and reporting that I have, that I got into this business for that ability to report on the story.
And they didn't know where you really stood, uh, because you, you had integrity. That's important. But I, I use hunter Biden as an example because, uh, social media wouldn't have. Anything to be said before the election concerning laptop and all of that, you know, even if it was a non-issue to absolutely shut it off, it's fake news.
And now what?
Hmm. Right. It's like, if you're going to look the other way, it's going to keep doing what's what's, what's what you're doing, you know? And, and that's why we saw so much bad activity from Cuomo. And that's why we continue to see headline after headline. Yeah. The first sun here, a hundred by little, little, a hundred by 51 year old, man.
Uh, he's not a child. He is definitely open for public ridicule on that. So here we are with another a hundred by the story. And Michelle, you said laptop, let me just quickly, correct. You laptops. Did you know, there've been three laptops that this guy has, has had just kind of quote, stolen or misplaced three laptops?
You know, I think I've had my laptop for like five or six years. I, you know, I can't imagine just Willy nilly losing a laptop, you know, and especially this guy though, he's got a laptop with content from his father, the now present world, uh, content, presumably from former president Obama, at one point, you know, just the, the elite of the democratic world here, this
Yes. I've used the one incident with people in power. You know, I'll just have a server in my bathroom. I'll just, I'll just put it up.
It wasn't with these people with hookers, Michelle Hunter Biden. Okay. So. I can't unsee what I saw on this video, but I saw a naked hunter with a naked hooker in this other hunter Biden story.
You know, I think the last time we talked about hunter, it was discussing the, the racist hunter memes that were on his laptop right before he was going to be a professor at Tulane. Like what the heck dealing, like pick your professors wisely here. We have a hunter Biden in this video that came out and it was a video filmed by his laptop because he used his laptop in the immediate moments before that to film a scene.
Video with a prostitute and they're in their room. You get the camera rolling. And, and after they were done with their little sex video, he just started talking and maybe he's like, like his, his own worst nightmare because he just talks. And it's, it's always stuff. That's definitely not approved by president Biden's handlers.
And he literally said that he was recalling this, this experience in Vegas, this bender, where he spent 18 days going from penthouse suite to penthouse suite, sometime costing 10 grand a night, uh, on drugs. And at one point trying to find his laptop after spending crazy amounts of. And he talks about, you know, losing his laptop specifically.
And he's like, um, you know, I was with these guys, the one guy was not like you anyway, but each night he'd be like, there's going to be so many people here, crazy effing party. And he was like, but each night there was really nobody there. It was just a lot of drug use and ultimately. Passed out for an extended period of time, uh, describing the experience like, oh, I was basically almost dead.
Cause I was,
I was so messed up.
Yeah. Yeah. And he's, he's literally on his laptop, you know, you gotta, you gotta film your sex acts. Right. And so he's using his laptop's camera to do so.
And it gets crazier. I'm so glad you watched this for us. So the rest of us don't have to, but it gets, it gets crazier than that.
You would think that after filming and then it possibly being that you'd be like, oh crap, my president or my dad is president. Um, yeah.
Well, he literally says, you know, he's like to the prostitute, he's just talking to her after their little sex video. And this
is on, this is on video. This isn't just subjective or.
It's not, yeah, it's this, isn't just, let's just make it up as a smear thing. This is really happening. I
watched the actual video and it's, it's naked hunter with a naked prostitute. And like, while they're talking, they're also, uh, leaning into the, the, the, the table, right. Alongside the bed, snorting mysterious powder.
Wonder what that means. And, and just having this, but making conversation about a shirt, they're just having a butt-naked conversation here. And he says to the prostitute, he's like these Russian drug dealers, they have these videos of me doing crazy effing sex f-ing you know, and the prostitute asks him, she's like, you know, are you worried that these Russian drug dealers are going to try to blackmail you and hunter replies?
Yeah. In some way. Yeah. He goes, my dad in audible, running for president, he told her in sort of a hushed voice. He says he is, I talk about it all the time. If they do want to blackmail me, he says, He also knows that I make like a gazillion dollars. He described his income as like a zillion dollars, like, whoa.
Um, and, but, but he basically hunter appeared to be dismayed that if the video was sold by these Russian drug dealers, trying to basically make money on his sex, sex acts on film, he was upset. Well, he was dismayed because the idea that he would be unable to cash in on the explicit videos of himself, that's actually what bothered him.
It didn't bother him. The fact that somebody had him on video doing God knows what, and probably things that are just unimaginable. He wasn't concerned about that. He was just mad that, oh man. But like, what if I can't make money on that? Um,
and you just put two and two together here. Help me, help me with some math.
Okay. You make a guess. You're worried about, uh, someone else making money instead of you off of some kind of reprobate act, right
in 2019, by the way, 2019, the same year that he got married to his now wife, who, who they have Bo Jr. With. Okay.
Okay. Think about this for a moment though. This is what, this is how crazy it is, and maybe gives you some mindset into why we say, you know, tax the rich.
Because, you know, you have enough money. You, this is where your mindset is. You have enough money that you have a gazillion dollars worried about, you know, someone else making money off of your sex tape instead of you, you know, no wonder people say, oh yeah, we, we really need to tax the rich. They just really have too much money, much money.
You have too much money, but this goes back to what we were talking about. Twitter and Facebook censored, um, the whole laptop story before the election, because it was fake news. Right. And, uh, this
is yeah, the New York post, their Twitter account was suspended until it was, it was Senator Ted Cruz was sitting here asking Jack Dorsey, is their account open yet?
Like why is it still locked? Um, it took a huge, huge. So it wasn't
it. Wasn't not fake news. Let me just ask lovely. Just put that out there into the web, as this is being broadcast worldwide. Let me ask this. Thank you social media for protecting us from this story that could possibly not be a real story.
Wasn't fake news or was it not fake news? And this is where you, you doing these, this crazy censorship is keeping truth from coming out. What's the importance of this? Let me ask you this, Adam, what's the importance of this story anyway, you know, president's son, you know?
Yeah. It shows how, how thoughtful I consider it and grateful we should be to big tech and big media for shielding, our fragile little minds from.
Concerning and scary stories to think that now three laptops could be in the hands of Russian and Chinese operatives containing extremely compromising information about anybody in the Biden family and any of their associates. Thank you guys for shielding us from that information because we're probably just, you know, just, I don't know, not smart enough to digest all of that because
the ends justify the means.
And let me, let me ask you this, w you should be concerned. I don't care if you love hunter, you worship our sitting president and think that Trump is nothing more than, than an orange demon. That is absolutely fine with me. That is your, your right. And we need those voices. Why do we need those voices?
Because if we don't have those voices, then you will have these stories happening on the right hold people accountable. Let me ask you this, Adam. Um, If this is how, you know, if something is, is a miss, if those same stories were, uh, one of Trump's kids that lost multiple laptops. And if Donald Trump, perhaps, or one of his kids, uh, said the kind of racist crap that hunter Biden did, would that, and should that be reported?
And I say, absolutely, it's disgusting. And if, if Trump had said that it would be all over the news and it should be, and he should be brought down.
Oh my gosh, without question, you would never have seen, you never would have seen a terrible meme or, or things that had the inward in it's certainly come from the laptop of one of Trump's kids.
Be it Don Jr, or Yvonne. I mean, his kids are all. You know, and, and I don't want to like sit here and talk them all off, but I mean, I certainly saw nothing of the sort from them ever. Nope, no
prostituting counters. Well, there was
a story Michelle about, you know, that, that ridiculous story about how Russian prostitutes were urinating on president Trump, which was a totally bogus manufactured story meant only to smear the Trump family name, just, just absolute garbage going through the press.
And they supported that story for a while. They entertained it, you know, it circulated on social media. It's circulated on the literally the mainstream media to this laptop story with videos as proof shut down.
Yeah. So this is where, this is where we're at today. We are, we're in an era where. Some news is being repressed.
Now you'll, you'll sometimes see that on the right as well. We'll only report this. Um, we don't do w w I think what I'd like to say is there has been an opening because of the repression of the news and the censorship for voices to go out and tell the other, another side of the story. Okay. Uh, but some of those voices are untrained voices.
They, you know, they haven't, they haven't, uh, they haven't experienced the kind of years of, of training and working in the media that teach you how to research a story to make sure that what you're reporting is true. So oftentimes they'll just. Get something and then it goes out and that happens a lot on the right.
Um, that's where educated voices or voices responsible voices really need to step up. And God bless the people who are passionate. I don't want to slam ya. You know, you're passionate and you're getting some word out, but you know, we really we're, we're in an age where we don't know what's what's up or down or right or wrong, shall
I can help you out on that one.
And so if you think about a lot of the younger journalists that are in the market today, right? Especially those who grew up with social media, controlling their, their life, starting at the college age through now, now working in the, in the professional world, right? You have social media, that's been sort of used at this as this tool to, uh, to spread and also falsely legitimize fake news.
Uh, if you think about the millions of tweets that occur every day, It's truly impossible for these social platforms to actually like scan through and identify every story as fake. It just, the volume of it is just makes it impossible. So, so social media is full of quote of like actual fake news. Um, and, and the fast multiplying nature of, of tweets means that the bad news can spread really, really fast, right?
Uh, fake news spreads because of four elements. Primarily you have bots, trolls people, and then micro-targeting. And there was a study that came out saying that there were over 190 million bots across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and these bots are created by program. And of course they're designed to mimic human behavior.
So as a real human user, we think that these bots are real in some cases, and these bots execute repetitive CA uh, tasks, they, they, they find non curated information that hasn't been vetted out. It hasn't been peer reviewed. It hasn't been checked by like an actual person trying to get three different sources of information to, to, to certify something as effect.
Right? So these bots are basically amplifying messages with some sort of reason or purpose to, to, to that activity. Right? And they'll hashtag things to kind of create a little bit more exposure and then bots will tag other bots. And then all of a sudden you see a post that has like all these likes and all these shares, and then a real human user comes across that and thinks it's real because it has all these lights and all these shares.
And you just assume that it's a fact when really it's not a fact, it's fake news, it's somebody talking about junk, right. And then all of a sudden you're reporting on the fact that a fan at the Colorado Rockies is saying the N word. When in fact the guy is really yelling at the man. And so you see the media take hold, what was
it that he was saying?
What was it that he was really saying, do you remember Scott's
name is like, like the word ringer it's binger, right? So he's young at the mascot. And then all of a sudden, the media picks up on the social media activity and literally the Colorado Rockies themselves. Then also point point to this customer of theirs, this fan of the, of the club.
And they just, they just barbecue. The guy, they call him a racist, they call them all these terrible things. And it's because the journalist didn't do their freaking jobs. They didn't actually follow the truth in the story. You know,
we've, uh, we've actually had a doctor that I had been working with on my show for decades, extraordinary man, uh, and a natural path author of a few books.
He was doing amazing work with cancer patients, cancer patients, taking people who are at the latest stages weeks to live and, and helping them to possibly overcome this horrific disease. And he was having great success. Well, Uh, some, one of these patients, uh, was just given weeks to live, went to his, to his practice as a last resort.
A couple of years later, she's alive and well and doing great. And she goes into her regular doctor for a checkup and he said, I thought you had died. What happened? Well, I went to, I went to this doctor and he, you know, he gave me immunotherapy and hallelujah, well that doctor being offended, turned him into the state, right?
Oh my gosh.
How dare the other doctors save this person's life? Right?
You will love this. It gets worse. Uh, a reporter. Uh, got ahold of that and then said, you know, he's doing these unfounded practices. He's doing this, he's doing that now. She didn't, she didn't research the story. She just took, uh, what the news will do now.
And that's important as you're watching what they, what they do, they will take in, uh, press releases. They'll take it. And if a press release comes out from the state, from an organization, they'll take it and verbatim they'll report it. Why do you think you can go up and down the, the television dial? You can go through news sources in Podunkville, um, Mississippi, uh, New York city and hear verbatim the same thing reported, because this is how they're reporting.
They're getting their news sources from press releases in the day. What you would do is you would research this to make sure it's so had them instead, they just report it. Well, this woman reported it. Um, then the state comes in close, it closes a practice. Uh, the other news sources in the, in the area picked up on, they heard hers and they want to report it to oh, okay.
Without re well, interestingly enough, just to months ago, that same reporter, uh, did a show apologizing, had the doctor on and said, this is what I did. So if you want more information, you can email me at my Michelle live. I'll give you information, but this is the
issue. How do you get back the time that was stolen from that doctor that could have been given to people who really needed that guy's expertise to save their lives.
I'm going to give you just a beauty, a beautiful thing, because I always like to get to the God story, this, this man, uh, didn't give up. He is working on something bigger for natural kind of, uh, vaccinations. We'll just say just, just to simplify it that are not filled with chemicals and things of that nature.
Uh, he's doing more along the lines of immunotherapy that can help the entire world. So, you know, when, when life gives you lemons, just hold on. God's got a plan, nonetheless. Yeah, there was a lot of people who were they, they were getting their treatments and. Ghetto got take out the IB, get out of here.
We're shut down. I don't know how many lives were lost, but that's an example of what is happening when we under report and I'm getting, that's going to lead into something that I I'd like you to give our audience. A friend of mine was just saying this week, they were talking about vaccines and the like, and, and COVID and, and such.
And he said, okay, well, you know, you really want me to get vaccinated, but what about all the people crossing the border and his dad, he was talking to his dad and his dad responded. Where'd you hear that on Fox news? It's like, well, is it true?
Right, right. Actual data that's being released. Right. I mean, the, the, so 15% of people crossing the border are testing positive for COVID and they're all crossing Florida, Texas, Arizona.
Like, why are the COVID rates in these. Going up well, when you have this. Okay. So is that data true? Right. Well, it's being released by the government, so it's, it's official data, right? And so you look at June when we had a 180,000 border crossings that jumped 13% in July. So we're not seeing any sign of the border crossings, letting up
audience a news story.
That July was the busiest month for illegal border crossings in 21 years
thousand apprehensions in July. That's just apprehensions. Imagine all the, all the folks that would just kind of evaded detection and just kind of cruise on through, uh, th this is insane. The 21 year high, this is as researched by, by peer research.
And I think the interesting thing was the fact that there was this audio that was leaked, uh, from my orcas. And, um, you know, so, so basically now we have a, a white house official leaking their true thoughts on it. The effectiveness of the existing border policies, the effectiveness of the Biden administration and what they're doing to combat, uh, just the, the human tragedy that we're seeing take place at the border.
And this quote for me, orcas was no, a couple of days ago, I was down in Mexico and I said, look, you know, if our borders are the first line of defense, we're going to lose, and this is unstressed unsustainable, this was audio that was obtained by Fox news and released, uh, through a border patrol source. And he said, we can't continue like this.
Our people in the field can't continue. And our system isn't built for it. I mean like, like, yeah, captain hobbyists, right? I mean, this guy right now is kind of taking a 180 from everything that came from the election. And he's saying, you know what? The white house, we need to pledge 2000 more border agents.
Okay. In the 2023 budget, 2023 budget is where we're going to add 2000 agents to the border. I mean, we're in 2021 right now this, this, this disaster is happening right now. Um, he's talking about. Refocusing on ice, which was demonized by every progressive running through the last election cycle iced. Right.
Um, he's talking about refocusing on ice, giving them more, uh, uh, tools and resources. Also helping them work to prevent the no shows that take place at immigration court. A lot of people that are given, excuse me, a notice to appear just don't appear to immigration court. They just live undetected and they, they find jobs and eventually, you know, some, some find their way back.
Uh, but some don't. And so there's this thing called title 42 that may is, is now working to reprioritize and title 42 is something that Trump enacted, uh, to rent the spread of COVID basically, he said it means single adults and many families that come through. We can immediately expel you instead of, uh, instead of hearing any sort of requests for, for asylum in the United States.
So now we have the white house going from saying, you know what, if you come across the border welcome, we're going to take care of you to now say. If you come across the border, we're going to expel you immediately and send you right back. Um, so this is all what came out in audio from may orcas, right?
And he's, he's the guy who was kind of in charge of all this stuff. Um, because clearly the, the borders are, uh, vice president Harris. She's really not present. Um, and I think this is very interesting to see this, this total reversal of policy, this total reversal of, I mean, it's like what we saw, um, earlier in the week, also these discussions about defunding the police.
I mean, now you have those who are in the democratic elite, those, those who have like a little bit of safety in their, in their term, they're not worried about the midterm elections. They're now saying that defend the police was just ridiculous. They're they're saying defend the police. Like this is just not at all what was said from there, from them, uh, for all of 20, 20 and 2021 now as well, like leading up to today.
Uh, we're just, it's, it's a it's hypocrisy at its best, I think. Yeah.
We, and we are seeing under-reported news stories, uh, where we have. The police, uh, and their lack of presence here in Washington state, you know, not being able to, to, uh, apprehend or pursue a, a potential criminal who has, uh, committed robbery, assault violated a protection order.
They are not, they, they, they are no longer, uh, supposed to pursue them. You know? Well, maybe they just don't have the manpower. And even here in Seattle there, and other cities, there's been an uprising of police because of the, uh, requirement of vaccination. Look, people, I know you, there's a lot of you who are like sold into vaccines and all of that, and that there's vaccines are great.
This vaccine is unprovable. And we have seen problems that you're not hearing reported, that we talk about all the time about, uh, the spike proteins for those who are vaccinated that never completely, uh, stop producing. And so it causes your body to kind of, uh, Eat itself in the way you're, you know, you, you create your own auto-immune problem.
Um, that's happening and they predict that in the next three to five years, we're going to see an uptick and heart attacks and, uh, brain aneurysms of this that's horrible. And there are things that you can do to protect yourself because you were trying to do the right thing. Good for you. You were trying to do the right thing out of a good place.
And your thinks is that they're not going to report this because they want to discourage it. Look, it is not a vaccine. If it isn't giving you protection because it's not. We see, uh, we see a huge surgeon, uh, Cases in places where 80, 90% of people are vaccinated. We're seeing that. And we're seeing an uptick in cases for, in areas where people are not vaccinated as well,
seven and plenty who got the Pfizer vaccine and literally tested positive for COVID two days ago.
You know what I mean? That's,
let's just say two people who are regulars. My Michelle lives podcast, two people, uh, they both either themselves or a family member like a child, or, you know, have tests have been a breakthrough case, you know, how is it that it's so rare when, you know, even on the show, that would be a huge percentage of the people that I have on that are regular, um, the it's happening.
So if we don't talk about it again, we're not holding anyone accountable. Those vaccines will never get safer. Never get better because they know in half to come on, people, feet to the fire, then you have, uh, the whole cancel culture of any information. Has to do with it, not getting out. And because of that, I want to give you the opportunity to get your own cancer.
I got to send you one of these because you've been canceled too. This is my Michelle live. You can find firstname.lastname@example.org your own canceled. If you are part of the council club, and we're encouraging this for people who are part of the cancel club,
you know what I, I, we basically got like Senator and presidential sort of status, right?
Because this right along with our, with our public officials,
look, get that. To be canceled. Yes, that's right,
right. You can't be afraid to self sensor or you cannot sorry. You can't, you can't self sensor. Right. Don't self sensor. Even if you get canceled fight to get back, you know, and be vocal, be, be, be, be that squeaky wheel, you know, be like me.
Right. Like I was in touch with my Congressman. I was blasting the company that canceled me, YouTube. Um, don't, don't shut down. Don't back off. I mean, be, be angry because you should be angry about something like being canceled because that's literally somebody saying whatever you have to say, nobody cares and you have no right to say whatever you're going to say.
But the reality is is that somebody does care and you do have the right to say what you're going to say. It's free speech. Um, and you know, it's just like, why can't we ask about the difference between. The MRN vaccines versus the Johnson and Johnson, traditional dead virus vaccine. Why can't we ask the questions that let us know about effectiveness or that let us know, you know, what, if you fight this naturally, then this is what the result could be for you.
Or if you have this preexisting condition, then this is what you should be concerned about. I mean, a lot of really good questions are being shut down and canceled right now. And, and that's why I think people are so over this. Right?
I hope so. You know, for those of us who have for being canceled for being canceled, I just want to give you this.
You may not have heard this story is so, uh, I had been canceled on YouTube for having, uh, uh, an expert on, uh, giving his opinion. God forbid, because anytime you challenge something, it used to be a challenge to make sure that what someone's saying is, so now it's, maybe we can say it's conspiracy. We demonize it.
Um, there was nothing I could do, you know, for. As vocal as I was, I had to spend time in YouTube jail. However, there's a new Penelope Cruz, uh, movie. It's, uh, it's a, it's a Spanish speaking film and the poster was canceled from social media because, um, you know, the shell life logo that it's kind of that oval.
And within it, it almost looks like an I, and within, it was a nipple with leaking milk, you know, from, from another. And it's a story about moms. It's a parallel mothers and. And it was canceled. Well, the social media
giants that was modernist put Alena, w I'm messing up the pronunciation here, Pata
but I don't speak Spanish efficiently.
Well, as a Texan, I basically like speak, I should speak a lot more Spanish than I do, but, you know,
social media apologized and said, oh, we're so sorry. Uh it's it really is art. And, and, you know, to be honest, you really have to look to see what it is. It's not sexualized, so I will give it that, but they went all out to make sure that it was back, back up, but important information that could save people's lives.
Not so much. So yeah. I wanted to give
0 (13s): Hi, Michelle live podcast. 1 (22s): Hey, Hey. Hey, I'm Michelle Mendoza. Happy to be the week with you. As we look at what we call a week in review, our weekend review takes on some of the big news stories of the week, and I'm finding that as much as I love to do this, I'm realizing that what we're doing is of vital importance. It's not just me, but everybody who is reporting news that you may not be hearing. And I'm not talking about just opining about conspiracy theories. That's important too. It's free speech. It challenges a narrative and challenge makes things better, right? 1 (1m 5s): If the Olympics just gave out gold medals to everybody and no one had to challenge each other for it, wouldn't be much of an event, any of them. Right? But I am talking about those of us who are reporting things that we dig deep. We're researching making sure that to the best of our ability that these are confirmed cases and, and news stories, what the media used to do. We're reporting things that are being canceled in some time, in some instances. And because we're doing that, the more of us who have these voices and the more of you who listen and like, and comment, the more people can get all of the information and we can make the world better. 1 (1m 51s): It is so important. And that is what we are doing today. We are doing it with our friend, he's my co-host and a weekend review, Adam or Z airy. And that's why we call it the risk report. And we are welcoming Adam. He even has a pretty groovy soundbite that we're going to play for you. Cause that's what it, it gives big voice guy. Just give me a second. Adam, want to make sure that big voice guy gets his his day 2 (2m 21s): Let's review the week with Adam was a year. There you go. There we go. 0 (2m 28s): Hey everybody great to be with you, Adam rosary here, and just keeping it real with the one and only Michelle Mendoza. We've got quite a, quite an episode today. I think some, some really important things to go over and, you know, before the show started today, Michelle and I were just kind of talking a little bit of a sidebar conversation. Just kind of realizing how truly important this stuff is, the conversations that we have, because really there's just not quite enough coverage on some of these topics. And these are things that truly matter. There are things that not only impacts our society at a high level, but they get really close to home as well. So I think that today we're going to kind of go over some topics that definitely have been relevant, you know, specific to this week. But then at the same time, some of these are kind of more, I guess you might say topics that have been kind of following us since the inauguration. 0 (3m 15s): And of course, before then to COVID the, the border crisis is a big deal. Things that our, our, our, our cities are experiencing things that our police forces are experiencing. And then just kind of looking forward to Michelle. I mean, we we've heard things, right? Like get vaccinated and you don't have to wear a mask, but, but now we're hearing different things, you know, get vaccinated and you know what, actually, whether you're vaccinated or not, you're gonna have to wear a mask. I'm sorry. Even the extreme, right? You can't travel to certain places now without proof of vaccination. I mean, things are getting a little out of hand, Michelle, I'm kind of wondering how do we sort of digest all this stuff? Where do we start? 1 (3m 52s): Well, I want to start basically with the border crisis. And here's why we're not hearing really much about it. If you're following the media, there's been some good reporting. There's been some unfortunate reporting on sexual abuse in some of the facilities, but we're not really hearing everything that's going on. So maybe we can get just an update. And I live, I live very close to the border mids, just the Canadian border. So that's why I say, we're not hearing it. Maybe you're hearing more in the way of border issues in Texas where your, your headphone, I'm 0 (4m 34s): Just imagining like a flood of like really comfortable flannel shirts. Like you're like, oh my gosh, all this <inaudible> okay. Then we do love you guys. We love you guys. And you are just generally polite and just good people in general. 1 (4m 56s): I have stories about how can I just, can I just tell you how polite Canada is Adam? I was up in Toronto for the MLS cup. My team is the Seattle Sounders. We were playing in the MLS cup, our team lost, and I am decked out in colors. Right. You can tell I'm from Seattle, I'm walking the streets and every 15 steps, some really nice Canadian was coming up and saying, oh, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm so sorry for your loss. 0 (5m 31s): I hope I hope you enjoy our 1 (5m 33s): City and have a good time anyway. And I just wanted to say, you know, could you just leave me the freaking heck alone for a few minutes? I was like, 0 (5m 42s): Yeah, I want them not like you, but man, you're really nice. And like, maybe we should just go have some beers later on 1 (5m 49s): Cross the other side of the border into Mexico, man, nice people as well. A lot of people who have nothing will give the last of what they have in generosity is a beautiful, beautiful country. And they're being victimized too by some of the migration 0 (6m 9s): Very much so. I mean, we're talking about migration coming from mostly central America, waving through Mexico and, you know, obviously putting a huge strain on the towns and local communities, the support structure for a country that's already, you know, trying to deal with some stuff. And so, you know, it was interesting this week, Michelle, I saw a tweet come from Congressman Steve Scullys and he was just kind of pointing something out that he noticed. And it was, you know, in his tweet, he said more illegal immigrants have crossed the Southern border this year than the population of these cities, Boston, Austin, Jacksonville, Charlotte, San Francisco, Nashville, Denver, Seattle, new Orleans, Washington, DC. 0 (6m 50s): And it's not stopping it's, it's really kind of crazy to think about this. And when you kind of like scale in, or kind of hone in on what this might look like in a small town, think about McCallan Texas near the border, the mayor of Macallan, Javier Villalobos. He, he just had to declare a disaster in his city. They had about 7,000 migrants released into their city last week. And they're kind of a lot of that 7,000 alone, 1500 of them were COVID positive on any given day. Typically in Macallan, you'll see about 1800 per day or so with a COVID rate of about 15%. This isn't a city that is, is really actually quite small, about 142,000 people in Macallan. 0 (7m 33s): So if you think about 1800 migrants coming into that city per day, and then multiply that by 365 days out of the year, you're talking about 657,000 people flooding through a city of 141,000. I mean, it's freaking nuts to really think about just the, just the toll that this takes on a city that doesn't really have a big tax base to support, you know, the kind of public services that you need to, you know, clean up after and, and take care of all of, all of the people and all of that activity going through just one small town, but you know, scale back, right? Looking at the big cities in America, man, the Biden border crisis has converged to create, you know, a lot of, a lot of fuel behind COVID discussions. 0 (8m 14s): And then of course also drugs in our country 1 (8m 17s): Ask you, why is this the Biden border crisis net start before him? Why are we putting a doll on his shoulders right now? 0 (8m 24s): Yeah. I mean, if you look, if you look at data, right? The, the amount of border crossings in all of 2020 in general, quite low, actually this all started after, right around the inauguration, like the week of. And so you talk about going from historical lows and border crossings to then almost 200,000 border crossings a month, Michelle, you know, like, how did that just happen overnight? Like, it's, it's a, it's almost like a flip was switched or it's almost like a different president. Took the, took the throne and took the gavel and everything changed. Right? You saw, you saw people coming across the border wearing shirts that said Biden on them. You saw people coming across the border that said we're coming because Biden invited us into the country. 0 (9m 10s): Yeah, 1 (9m 11s): I have the sound bite. I don't know. I'm not going to dig it out. But he said, I know, I don't know. Maybe they're just coming because I'm a good guy. So my question is why is the federal government trying to put so much effort on, on, COVID not reporting all of the COVID story, which could protect those of you who have been vaccinated. Okay. There's some dangers there and you'll need to know about them to, to navigate maybe some problems down the road with this experimental drug, right? And, and there's some information that can help you, but we don't want to talk about it because it goes against the narrative. 1 (9m 52s): The federal government that is, is pushing COVID, but they're completely ignoring the border crisis and thousands of illegal immigrants that are coming across the border. As you, as you mentioned, Steve, <inaudible> a post, but they're, COVID positive. A lot of them have been COVID positive. We're not testing them. We're not saying as we are for many restaurants now, New York city that you can't come in without being vaccinated. We're not saying that, and we're not vaccinating them upon arrival. 0 (10m 33s): My wife about this. And she kind of shared with me this theory about the, the border situation and vaccines. And if you recall, you know, at one point the Jonathan Johnson vaccine, the one shot dead by respect scene was, was being distributed pretty, pretty quickly through our, our country the same day that my brother actually got that particular vaccine, they pulled it. And then they started reallocating it to use towards the border because it's a one-shot vaccine, easier to administer, easier to store all that kind of stuff. And so she was like, well, what if the media? And what if the administrators were just trying to scare the public so that they could reallocate this one shot vaccine to the border to try and mitigate the issue there that people being pissed about, you know, a potentially good vaccine being used on people that are not Americans. 0 (11m 21s): And I was just like, ah, maybe there's something to that. I don't 1 (11m 24s): Know what's going on, but we are vaccinating the people who are coming in and many of the people who are coming in with open borders, we, we're not like saying, oh, okay, come on in and check in here. You know, they're coming in and just assimilating into society without, without being vaccinated. And go ahead, 0 (11m 47s): It's still, they have lesser quarantine policies, right? Like the, the standard with COVID early on was, well, if you have COVID, then you have to quarantine for two weeks, right? Well, if you cross the border and you have COVID, you have to quarantine for like 10 days. Why is there a different standard? Oh, it's because it's really hard for DHS to there. Sorry. It's for H S to housing feed and take care of almost 200,000 people per month incremental. It's just a strain on resources. So it's just, it's a joke. I mean, even like the six foot social distancing thing. Well, if cupola is an aerosol and you know, an aerosol can travel like 30 feet. I mean, I think it's technically supposed to be a 30 foot social distance sort of situation. 0 (12m 28s): So, you know, it's like, why are we operating with like goofy science here? And why are we so inconsistent in policies that we try to enforce and try to, I got the answer to this is the most poorly managed crisis ever. 1 (12m 41s): I've got the answer to why are we operating with goofy science? Because if we do not allow science to be challenged with other ideas that we might think are goofy as well, if we don't allow that, then science doesn't get better science doesn't challenge itself. We still think the world's flat because that's what you're supposed to think. If you think that, and you don't allow challenge, you never find the truth. There's even a group of flat earthers, Adam out there who say, well, wait a minute. I think the earth actually may be flat. And we laugh at that and that's fine to laugh at that, but welcome it to the discussion. 1 (13m 25s): Because if you do truth, usually will, will always win out. And I've said this again. And again, if you're new to my Michelle live, you'll hear it now. And you'll hear it in the future. Even God doesn't say you shall not challenge me. You shall not question me. He says, come let us reason together. Test me, try me, prove me. Th these are words that you'll see here in the Bible, because if God is says, go ahead, search it out. He's not afraid. Why should we be? 0 (14m 1s): If you walk in truth, you have nothing to fear, right? I mean, got it, got it scared. You know, it's not a no, no problem. You're right on. And so I think a lot of this is just, you know, those empowered, trying to use fear to control us. You know, that's really what it is, especially now recognizing how the white house is trying to ramp up ridiculous. COVID restrictions. These, these discussions of lockdown policies in person. It's, it's funny because they basically tell you what's about to happen by saying we're not considering doing this. The mayor to Bose home in New York, right below the Blasio's. Yeah, I think it was last week. He was saying New York is not currently considering lockdowns or mandates or vaccine path. 0 (14m 46s): Proof of vaccination. Right? Well, here we are. Now we see New York city where you go in your spaces without proof of vaccination. You can't go into restaurants. You can't go into gymnasiums. Can't go into venues. You can't really do much without proof vaccination, president Biden, federal government, federal workers can not travel for work without proof of vaccination. If you are not vaccinated, you must submit to two COVID tests a week. You have to wear a mask all the time. And you know, you have to like name your next unborn child after president violin as well. 1 (15m 24s): Don't joke about that. We don't know what's next, like little baby Joe, it's happening all over other California here in Seattle, they just listed a hundred over a hundred restaurants where your kind is not welcomed here. I want to linger on that for just a moment and think about how do you think it developed where we hated people because of the color of their skin, where people who were black in the United States of America, we're not allowed to use the same water fountains were had to go to the back of the bus. 1 (16m 7s): We're not allowed in restaurants or bars. How do you think that happened? If you look at that and say, that is freaking reprehensible. Think about how it happens. Somewhere along the lines, people were saying, well, that's just science. You know, if you think of Darwinian evolution, there are some people who are less evolved than others, right? They use Cy, fake science, flawed science. And people said, well, maybe this is just a good idea. You know it. And they bought into it without allowing it to be questioned. I put a post on Facebook on a page that talks about the cancel culture. 1 (16m 47s): And I, it was from my city. The new steroid just gave to you a hundred, over a hundred restaurants and bars, not allowing people who are vaccinated I said is vaccination. The new racism is our, our is our cancel culture causing us to hate on a people group. And a woman commented and said, no, this is just science health and common sense. And I said, science health. Yes, but only part of the science part of the health. And so not common sense. If you are not listening to all of the science, if you're not allowing your science to be challenged, then honey, you are not making these vaccine manufacturers be responsible. 1 (17m 40s): You are not going to get better vaccines. If we say there's some problems, you're not going to know what's really happening in order to propel as a society, we stay stuck in the dark ages, thinking the earth is flat, her response, you're going to love her response. Well, well, it's just a good idea. Again, I had to respond. I have a hard time shutting up. I know I said, okay, good for me, but not for the win. It's my idea. And I shut everybody out. It's not cancel culture. It's when you do it, that it's canceled culture. 1 (18m 20s): That's what the problem is. And it's the problem that we are allowing ourselves to not have this conversation. 0 (18m 28s): I think if, if, if that conversation happened in Texas and you know, Michelle was talking to that person, I think a text would have been like, you know, honey, bless your heart, but bless your heart. She's really saying you're an idiot. 1 (18m 44s): I'm getting away with that. But you know, my family's from the south and my mom would do that all the time. 0 (18m 49s): Oh, bless your heart. And you could say something horrible. You are the ugliest, 1 (18m 55s): Most horrific person I've ever met in the world. Bless your heart. And then it's okay. Y'all 0 (19m 1s): Get, it's almost like with all due respect and then like insult, insult here. If I'm being honest, like what were you not going to be honest? It's just like, ah, it's so good. You know, Michelle, it's interesting though. Well, the, the whole concept of, well, it's just a good idea. You know, Congressman Massey was talking about the data, right? The science and the CDC and all of these people keep pointing to basically unpublished data, right? They're, they're, they're trying to cite data. That's not actually publicly available or that hasn't necessarily been peer reviewed. And in the scientific community, you know, a peer review is an opportunity to accept a scrutiny to live in truth. 0 (19m 42s): And then to have other scientists who are credible and qualified to ask really hard questions to say whether or not your research, you know, holds water. And so to see all these people sort of saying, oh, it's the science. Well, we'll know it's not because it's not published first of all. And when it is published, it needs to be peer reviewed and scrutinized. And then that's when you have to be allowed to ask questions. But when I think Michelle, we were talking about, you know, different, different therapies and different ways of combating COVID, you know, you have really credible people being shut down. You have, you have doctors, Dr. Robert Malone, there was, there's also a professor Satoshi Satoshi Omera who won a Nobel prize. 0 (20m 22s): At one point, it sounds like credibility to me, basically, this person won a Nobel prize for work on a drug called ivermectin. And you know, so we have very credible people who are saying, Hey, you know what? I have a good idea. We should at least hash this out. Okay, 1 (20m 37s): Let me play. Let me play a soundbite on that because I don't want to just give our thoughts and our opinions. I want to give some of these news stories. This is Dr. Pierre Corey, before a Senate, he's giving a Senate testimony on ivermectin and prophylaxis. The reason this is important as you're listening is that in order to have these emergency use act for the four vacs, what they're calling vaccines, they have to not have any protocol or treatment. There has to be no known treatment for a disease. 1 (21m 19s): This is what Dr. Pierre Kory had to say, take Alyssa. 0 (21m 24s): McFadden sits in our Vanderbilt hospital bed. No, no, no. That's the wrong one. Sorry about Parker. McFadden, 1 (21m 32s): Vanderbilt hospital bed. But he says that the mother of three received her second Pfizer COVID shot. I love technology. And I'm using go ahead for the rest of my life. Sorry about that. What he says is that ivermectin and prophylaxis are highly effective. Nobody should die. If they're being treated with these hydrochloric queen had had a lot of success as well, but there, but they haven't gone through peer review as you were talking about, but we're not allowing that. 1 (22m 17s): And we're not moving forward, but we can use these experimental drugs. I, you know, any time, let me just, let me just say this and see what you think as you're listening or watching your thoughts are welcome in the comments below wherever you're listening or watching this. Anything that lists death as one of the possible side effects should never be forced on someone. It's a kind of a Russian roulette. As we're finding that, that there are people who are dying, even though they have the, even though they have the vaccine, but we're also seeing Adam, let's take a moment to talk about some of the problems that, that people are experiencing with the vaccine, because the government's numbers are saying it's 50, 50, 50% of America. 1 (23m 12s): It's just not enough. Right? So 50% of Americans aren't vaccinated, which means if you're shutting down restaurants voluntarily, you may have just lost 50% of your, of your patrons. Think about that for a moment. Nonetheless, 50% of you who have the vaccine, are you taking care of yourself? Are you protected? Here's something that's happening, Adam, that they're finding that those who have the backseat, the MRN in particular, it is causing micro clotting. Now those big clots that, that you've heard about, very rare. 1 (23m 54s): Yes they are. Although we should know about it because that's a chance you take the micro clots though, are happening in the majority likely around 60 rough figure, 60%, those micro clots are a problem. And what's happening is that as we shoot trillions of these spike protein things into our, into our bodies, they are breaking the blood-brain barrier. And so it could be causing permanent damage. A lot of people experiencing that, fog it, the clotting happens our small arteries as where it goes, and it becomes spike protein factories that never shut off, just go into crazy production. 1 (24m 48s): So your body starts fighting against itself. And we're seeing problems with the heart. With hearts. It's predicted that some people are going to be experiencing heart attacks, heart problems in the next three to five years. I want to play Dr. <inaudible> talking about the study that he's doing. The D dimer 3 (25m 9s): Is a blood test that has, that will show up a recent workshop and old clock. It shows up a new job, and it doesn't tell you where the clock is. It just tells you that the clutching mechanism has been activated. So I have now been recruiting patients from my practice, people that have come into my office or the set up that I've heard her speak about this and ask people to do this D dimer within one week of October and so far. And this study is ongoing. These are preliminary results so far, I've got 62 to sentence, positive two elevated DDI, which means that the blood talks on the so-called experts keep telling us the trucks are red. 3 (25m 55s): Ones are rare, but the small ones clearly happening in the majority, maybe 60%. 1 (26m 3s): Yeah. I'd like to ask if those D dimers are not showing up, do they not show up later? Does your body correct it? I don't know, but this is what he says is some of the problems and concerns of that? No, no. 3 (26m 18s): Tell me what the real concern witnesses is. A cluttered vessel is that vessel goes back to normal. The frequent side effects off the top of the shock headache, dizziness, fatigue. Literally you could be having thousands and thousands of tiny little trucks. They weren't showing a scan, but they will give you those symptoms. That concern it is drizzly permanently damaged. And the person's not muscles. When the heart, the heart tries to through all those damaged vessels, this increased resistance trying to come put bloodline. 3 (27m 4s): So those people are going to develop high blood pressure. And those people probably all develop right-sided heart failure within three years, because they now have increased vascular tissue and heart tissue, brain, and spinal tissues. All of that does not regenerate. 0 (27m 30s): Wow. So Michelle, I was literally just picking up a stat from the CDC itself and about 25% of Americans deal with hypertension. And today heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. So we think about, you know, the amount of obese people in our country. Diabetics, let me just, there are so many issues that already exist today that are now complicated because of this alone. 1 (27m 57s): Yeah. And if we're going to start seeing this more and more look, I want to get this out there. Not just to say, why aren't we talking about it, but to protect those who have been vaccinated, there are some things that you can do that some doctors are recommending. Some of the properties that you see that are in wet red wine in pineapple, have a great effect on some of these micro clots. From what I understand, I'm not a doctor, but I, I want to make that information known because you're not hearing the whole story. So while we are saying that your kind is not welcome here. 1 (28m 37s): Here's something else. I want your thoughts on Adam. This being the new racism in a way, let's take it to this level. And I want you to think about this and get your thoughts. One of the biggest people groups in America that doesn't have the vaccine we've said is black Americans, black Americans. Don't, aren't getting the vaccine. So when you're in this age where everything is racist, tell me why that's not racist. Your kind is not welcome here. Not vaccinated, your kinds not welcome here. 1 (29m 17s): We've turned weird. Wait, can I just say this for a moment? I understand your concern. If you're saying that, you know, health and safety, but if you're not looking at the whole story, we're seeing that that vaccinated people can be spreading and can contract. And shall we share these news stories around just the country, Massachusetts, I'm going to share this article. You'll be able to see it. As you're watching the CDC is reporting this Adam 74% of people infected in Massachusetts with COVID-19 outbreak were vaccinated 74%. 1 (30m 3s): And one more. And I'd like to get your thoughts in Jerusalem. Did you reel the Jerusalem post is reporting this. It will, you can find it everywhere is real. Is banning. Now think about this while we're banning unvaccinated. Israel is banning the back's unaided. They are one of the most aggressively vaccinated countries in the world. 90% of their adult population are vaccinated and they are having a huge outbreak. They're closing their borders to the vaccinated because 80% of the people in the hospital with COVID-19 are vaccinated, Adam. 1 (30m 43s): Well, 0 (30m 44s): First of all, on the, on the Israel topic, what the heck do they know that we don't, you know, like they, they were, they were so adamant to the point of mandating their entire country to get vaccinated. It doesn't matter whether you were pregnant. It didn't matter whether or not you were fighting cancer, buddy. You're getting that shot in your arm and that's it. And so now this is just a 180, you know, and, and I would expect a 180 from, you know, most, any policy coming out of the white house today. But you know, Israel is a little bit, it comes to their, to their policies. So to hear this, it makes me wonder, okay, well, what the heck do they know that we don't know? Is there some data that the CDC has that is not publishing that it's not publishing and, and it's making decisions based on that as well? 0 (31m 29s): I don't think the American public is being given the full story. I don't think we have from the start. And, you know, because of the political context of everything that we're experiencing, you know, a lot of the, a lot of the, those in the black community that you were kind of talking about, Michelle, in a lot of cases, we're talking about more conservative religious people here, a lot of great people that, you know, I, I think you might be able to point to as, as the champions of the civil rights movement, we're talking about, you know, more of the Southern Baptist, the Southern Protestant Christians, and these are people that don't have a lot of trust for. What's being told to the American public and, and rightfully so science isn't science anymore. 0 (32m 12s): And the news is all sensational, and it's all designed to scare you or to get a click to an advertisement. And it's just junk and people are tired of it. People just want the truth. And can you blame them? So to now kind of create this environment where if you are someone who rightfully doesn't trust some of the news that we've been given or told, and really trusted this, this new definition of science now, you're, you're being pushed to this class of people that says, well, either you show me your vaccine passport, your proof of vaccination, or you don't get to exist with the rest of society. And I think it's just total garbage. Michelle, I think on one side of the fence specific to, you know, the, the 180 from Israel, where's the data what's going on there. 0 (32m 59s): I think we should definitely dig into that specific to what's going on in our country with New York city now saying, you know, to enter indoor spaces, you have to show your proof of vaccination, knowing that that's going to alienate a lot of people who are in the, in the black community specifically. Yeah. I mean, it's like the Democrats have created a problem for themselves by not really living by values or science at this point. 1 (33m 25s): Yeah. We're in a very disturbing place and we're not listening to all of the concerns. If we were listening to all of the concerns we could hold the, the vaccine producers accountable and say, make them better. If we do not talk about it, we will not make them better. And we are all the poorer for it. I played the soundbite in Wednesday's broadcast of Candace Owens, giving us some food for thought, if you have to be coerced, if you have to be forced, if you have to be manhandled and bribed, is it really in your best interest? 1 (34m 10s): And that's just some food for thought, take a listen. If 3 (34m 13s): You have to be persuaded, reminded, pressured, or lied to incentivized, coursed believed it was socially shamed, guilt trip threatened and paid, punished, and criminalized. If all of this is considered necessary to gain your appliance, you can be absolutely certain that what is being promoted is not in your best interests, 1 (34m 37s): Just food for thought. And we're seeing that resources, police resources all over the world are being employed to make sure everybody's compliant to lock down. Now, we're not talking about the zombie apocalypse here. We're not talking about something that is, I mean, at the danger level of, of what we saw with the Ebola and the light, we're seeing basically the same numbers as the flu, which by the way, has gone the way of the dinosaur. There is no more flu. Why is that? You might take into consideration and do your own research on this. 1 (35m 17s): Don't just take my word for it. Be willing to listen. God bless you. That's great. But do your own research. One of the testing modes is being tossed out as of December 31st of this year, because they're finding it gives too many false positives because it takes everything, any kind of symptom that you might have that is COVID desk and it's calling it COVID. So it'd be a cucumber. 0 (35m 46s): You can be a cucumber or a donkey and take that test. And it's going to say you have COVID. 1 (35m 52s): It's really crazy. Yeah. And, and so we're employing a lot of resources to an already depleted police force to make sure that everybody is in compliance. This is crazy. So until we get to where the government says, and that goalpost changes, ask yourself why all the time, if we comply enough, then we can have our freedoms back as if they're the ones who get to control our freedoms. That's not how a free society works. 0 (36m 25s): It's like the, like the, the New York city vaccine for proof of vaccination situation. If you want to enter indoor spaces, you've got to prove that you've been vaccinated. You know? Well, if black lives matter, right, well, if you're black enough and vaccinated, we don't care. It's kind of what they're saying. The hypocrisy from the unscientific illogical laughed is beyond me. And we just saw a strong example of this coming from squad member, Congresswoman Cori Bush. She's been really, really vocal about calling for a defund while paying Michelle. This is a lot of money paying 70,000. 0 (37m 8s): It's so uncomfortable. And it's like, well, they're saying, you know what, guys, we think that cops should be defunded and that you as Americans shouldn't have the right to own a gun, but I can have a private security team of 20 around me because well, I'm special. It's ridiculous. So I got to say my hypocrite of the, of the week award. And I just, I just made this up, right? My hypocrite of the week award is going to have to go to Cory Bush for literally constantly crying to defund the police. And now kind of looking to really what has happened kind of at a high level, across our country, different mayors of different, large cities. 0 (37m 47s): They've all been crying to defund the police. And I'm gonna kind of go through a couple here, but before I, before I leave the Cory Bush topic, I do want to point to, I think something that was potentially, maybe inspiring, I don't know, but definitely something positive here from a minister and Boston kind of going back to Massachusetts here, Michelle, but this, this gentleman, Reverend Eugene Rivers, the third was slamming Corey bushes comments about defunding the police just by her $70,000 private security force. And he was kind of pointing out the fact that, you know, what the poorest black neighborhoods in Boston are actually doing pretty well. And in fact, by improving the tools and resources that the police have, and then following this model, that is a combination of faith-based organizations and law enforcement partnerships. 0 (38m 37s): You're actually able to create some real good in areas that otherwise, if you look at like places like Chicago, the rough parts of New York or other big cities in our country, that don't have these faith-based organizations partnering with the police. I mean, Boston is doing it right now. And so, you know, I think back to what David Brown was trying to do when he was here in Dallas and now he's in Chicago and God bless them. Good luck, man. I feel for him just for what he's dealing with, but this, this idea of you don't have a police force to run around carrying guns. You have a police force, that's there to, to really create a relationship with the community that they care about and that they serve. 0 (39m 17s): And, you know, we were earlier in the episode, we were kind of saying, you know, this, this Biden border crisis is creating not only problems with COVID, but also problems in on the police side of things. I don't want to lose sight of this one story, Michelle, that I'll share it pretty quickly. There's not a whole lot to it, but it's just sort of an anecdote and a body cam was just released of, of an event that took place on July 3rd body cam footage was just released that showed a Sheriff's deputy in California, basically experiencing an accidental fentanyl overdose. I 1 (39m 51s): Have that FA footage, if you want to show it. Absolutely. 0 (39m 55s): Absolutely. I almost, I, I, I'm not going to lie. I teared up watching this footage. It was the story from his partner about how he saved this deputy trainee's life. Michelle let's let's check out this footage. 3 (40m 8s): You're okay. Don't be sorry. <inaudible> I'm corporal Scott Crane from the San Diego county Sheriff's department. My training was supposed to fit and nearly it was our first radio call of the day. And this was my deputy five eyes. He found a white substance that he suspected was trucks. It's a powder cocaine. 3 (40m 51s): That's no joke. It's super dangerous. I was like, Hey dude, you're too close. You can't get that close to it. A couple of seconds later, if you took some steps back, I ran over and I grabbed him. He was odd. And I went to my trunk. The Narcan came down to him, dropped him one nasal spray in one nostril, open the other one, another nasal spray. And the other one was, I remember just not feeling right. And then I fought back <inaudible> because it wasn't an incident in my launch. 3 (41m 44s): This one, I couldn't even breathe. I was trying to gasp for breath, but I couldn't agree that I go talk to him. No, no, don't be sorry. There's nothing. Sorry. I got you. Okay. I'm not gonna let you die. I'm trying not let him go. I just wanted him to know he posed some physical killer. He would have died in that parking lot. If he was fire department, got there, put him on the gurney, his eyes rolled back in his head and he started and he was odd the whole way to the hospice. 3 (42m 32s): I don't think people realize the severity or justice, how deadly it really is. I'm deputy David five-way and I almost died. Offense. 0 (42m 44s): Wow, Adam, absolutely. 1 (42m 51s): Isn't that? I don't have words I don't have. 0 (42m 54s): Fentanyl is 50 times more powerful than heroin. This guy, this deputy trainee overdosed three times on his way to the hospital. This guy was literally in proximity of a vehicle from an arrest suspect. He was in proximity of the back of the vehicle, maybe a foot from the gate of the small SUV. And just by being there, the, the microscopic amounts of fentanyl in the air literally caused him to collapse and immediately start overdosing. If that guy was by himself, he would have been dead. For sure. And you know, you think about what these police put themselves through, what these officers do to protect our communities. 0 (43m 39s): And then you, you realize that, I mean, they're more fentanyl has been brought to our country then could kill the entire population, right? Like since the, since the border opened up, it's insane how much drugs are coming across the border. And these guys were trying to stop them from getting into our communities. You know, on a previous episode, Michelle, I've shared that, you know, when I was an undergraduate in school, this kid that I was the orientation leader of died for fentanyl. He was with his friends and he took it recreationally and did not survive it. I mean, this stuff does come close to home and it will, it will hit the most privileged communities that exist in our country. Whether you come from, you know, a place with like that, where you're looking to have sheets or, you know, a place where you have a different cotton with like this a hundred thousand thread count, right? 0 (44m 23s): Like whether you live in luxury or not, fentanyl is a drug that will get your community. And so to see what this, what this deputy training was kind of dealing with it, it's, it's really, really hard not to at least shed a tear or two. I know I did. When I first watched this, I shared it with my wife as well. And I think about that policy of our politicians who are sitting here saying guys, defund the police, take away their resources, take away their training, take away their ability to do their job in a safe way. Take a take away their ability to go home safely at night. 1 (44m 59s): Yeah. And let me, let me just say that there's a mindset out there that says they're not, it's not about less officers. It's about reallocating those funds to better help the community. Okay. Right. That's that's what, what I was saying, bring those challenges to a narrative so that we can talk it through. So what is happening are the neighborhoods who need it the most I've re getting better service in the wake of defunding the police or re allocating these funds. No, they aren't. We're seeing the, the rate of homicides go through the roof and it's happening more frequently in the least advantaged neighborhoods, 0 (45m 49s): Literally Michelle. Well, there are literally no police zones and in parts of Chicago where, you know, if, if there's a shooting, like the plays aren't coming, they're gonna, they're gonna show up hours later to collect the bodies and cart them off. But, but if there's an issue, whatever it might be, the police are just not there and they want to be there, but they're just not able to be there because of those who are empowered. Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, between 2015 and 2000 Chicago has been a little over $17 million to guard what they have tagged as quote, unnamed city officials and their official documentation and 2020 alone, the security detail for Lori life. 0 (46m 32s): It was $3.4 million. Look at the year before that 2019 2.8 million spent on her protection. So despite her saying defund the police, let's also cut 400 police from the city of Chicago. She then raises her private security budget from 2.8 million and 19 to $3.4 million spent on her in 2020. I think at one point in her neighborhood, she had her street blocked off so that protesters could not approach her, her residence. The hypocrisy is beyond me. And you know, it's just like, it's like more of the same San Francisco right now. London breed the mayor, London breed, not quite as bad, but a lot of their, their, their commitments to them to divest 120 million haven't played out yet. 0 (47m 16s): But the mayor spent a hundred thousand more on, on security in 2020 than the year before New York city is where you see shocking numbers cutting a billion dollars from the $6 billion police budget. You know, one of the, one of the most iconic cities in our country, we're talking about cutting a billion dollars from that police budget. I mean like, did we forget about nine 11? Did we forget about just if see something, say something, why does mayor de bozo have a private security detail for his wife and son? Is it because they need it? Well, if so, why do they need that private security detail? Why, why 1 (47m 53s): Do we not get that kind of protection? Th that's that's the crazy thing to me, the hypocrisy that you were talking about, representative Cory Bush. And she was saying, well, I have such important work to do, you know? And, and, and I need that. There's been, there's been threats to me and I have important work to do so once again, like we saw with, with the, with the lockdowns, the government is the ones who decide, who is essential, who is not who's important, who is not, who gets protection, who is expendable. This, these are things that we should be thinking about. That's doesn't that make you uncomfortable? 1 (48m 34s): Or am I, or do you think I'm crazy? Go ahead. Comment below just saying 0 (48m 40s): My younger sister was living in Brooklyn. She didn't have a private security detail and whenever she had issues, you know, she, she had to handle them herself and wait for the proper authorities to get there, but it wasn't like she had, you know, security on demand, you know, it's like, oh, let me just hit the speed, dial real fast. And they know my name, these, these, these politicians live and this, this alternate reality. I mean, it was, it was new year's Eve, right at the, at the ball drop in New York, made it in the bozo, sitting there dancing with his wife. I'm in a shutdown where nobody else can be there enjoying time square, but, but he's there slow dancing to some music, you know, it's just, it's just insane. Gavin Newsome dining at nice restaurants, despite the fact that, you know, nobody else can, and then you Pelosi and other politicians going to the salon and getting their hair done, but opening those salons so that they can experience a private service. 0 (49m 31s): It's not really fair. And, 1 (49m 33s): You know, Obama D is scaling back his 60th birthday party, but he came under a lot of fire because he was, he's invited hundreds of the former administration officials, celebrities to honor him at the, at his in Martha's vineyard. And so, you know, it's like, it was this big deal and there were big party plans, months in the making. So this has been, since COVID many invitees had already arrived in Martha's vineyard. And then Barack Obama belatedly announced that he was counseling his 60th birthday bash that was scheduled for Saturday due to the Delta virus. 1 (50m 20s): So I'm going to say, 0 (50m 23s): Maybe 1 (50m 24s): I'm going to say good for him. You know, I'm sure he didn't want to fall under condemnation. He thought twice about it. And he could have very easily just said, you know, I'm going to do what I want to do. He's not president anymore. You know, you could, you can
0 (5s): My Michelle live podcast. Hey, thank you so much for joining us 1 (23s): Today. 2 (25s): We officially a better dance moves the politicians. 0 (31s): I'm glad you can be with us today. I'm Michelle Mendoza and you may be new to my Michelle live. Welcome. Welcome. Glad to have you along for the ride. My Michelle live is a program. We take a lot of different bents on the news, differing topics from science and technology, health entertainment, sports news views. And we always look for a deeper story. What's a deeper truth. What's some way we can be better people. What is the God's story? If you will. But at the end of the week, we culminate all of the news, all of the things that are going on out there. 0 (1m 13s): And we pick some of the hot topics to review in what we call a week in review, but then we turn it up a notch. We bring in the spins as factor because we bring in our friend, Adam and we call it the reserve. That's right. And in the process of it all, we make it fun for all of us. And we are going to get into what we call. I have to <inaudible> 2 (1m 56s): Back to push the buttons there. 0 (2m 1s): Come on. Big boys guy. It's fine. It's the weekend. Big voice guy wants the weekend off. That's okay. I get it. I kind of do too. Sometimes Adam are the areas with agency they're active, a marketing guru and a man who's up on a lot of things that are going on in the news. We're going to be sharing with you some big news that pertains to you. And in particular, one reason, a lot of folks tune in to my Michelle live is because some of this news, your not hearing other places, you're not getting the entire story. 0 (2m 42s): It's not all reported. It's edited. It's scripted. It is a spin doctor. It's sanitized for your protection. Give 2 (2m 54s): The people what they want. 0 (2m 57s): Knowledge is power though. What w why are we afraid of truth? Well, there's a lot of truth out there that we're just not hearing the whole story. So let's, let's start with one of your picks, Adam. 2 (3m 16s): Yeah, definitely. Knowledge is power. And I think I've been kind of picking up on that one since GI Joe in the early nineties, right? GI Joe. And you know, one of the, one of the topics of the week is this topic that is just kind of blowing my mind right now. And it's, it should, it should really blow all of our minds, but it's this recommendation from the CDC that vaccinated people in some locations and in K through 12 schools should wear masks indoors. What? So there was a quote that came out of the CDC director of wish, Rochelle Willinsky. She says in recent days, I have seen new scientific data from recent outbreak investigations showing that the Delta variant behaves uniquely differently from past strains of the virus that caused COVID-19. 2 (3m 59s): Okay. So she's seen new scientific data. None of us have no data has been presented to support their concerns here. And they're saying that literally, if you've been vaccinated, you still have to wear a mask. This is just so counter to everything that we've heard previously, president Biden was saying by following the science and by doing our part, by getting vaccinated American, I can beat COVID in the meantime, more vaccinations and mask wearing. And the areas most impacted by the Delta variant will enable us to avoid the kind of lockdowns shutdowns school closures and disruptions we've faced in 2020, Michelle. This just ooze is political bias to me. When I look at what's kind of going on around some of our states and cities, you have Washington, Washington, DC, he's mayor Marel Bowzer. 2 (4m 44s): And I think it's a coincidence that her last name matches the bad guy from Mario brothers Bowzer, but they'll read them stalling, indoor mask, man, maybe she really, she wasn't really Bowzer. You know, she's installing a mask mandate and she's concerned about COVID deaths. When last week alone, there were more deaths than DC from gun violence, a place where you can't even legally have a loaded gun. You have to literally lock your firearm away from the magazine and lock, lock your ammunition separately from the firearm itself, they have like these super restrictive gun laws that I guess nobody's following and, and COVID deaths, right? That's not the real concern in DC. 2 (5m 25s): There are so many other concerns that are taking place there that they should be addressing with, with urgency. Other places, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Savannah, Georgia, they're reinstating mask rules, New York city right now, mayor to bozo. Can't call him to Blasio anymore. Maybe the bozo was considering the CDC guidance. And my also re-install the mask mandates, Michelle, this is just exhausting. I mean, vaccines, do they work? Do they not work masks? Do they work? Do they not work? We're getting like a constant Flint, like more flip-flopping than John Kerry in his presidential election. More flip-flops than John Kerry's voting record out of ourselves. When the snip us, we were in Hawaii, that's crazy. 0 (6m 6s): This is where, where we really have to hone in again on truth and look at what's really going out there. Look, masks can make you feel like you're doing something and I'm not going to deny that there might be some benefit to wearing those masks. Even, even the fact that, 2 (6m 28s): Well, if you're a celebrity, right, you can, you can go out in public and not be hounded by paparazzi. Maybe. I mean, we're not celebrities. 0 (6m 37s): You know, people in Asian countries have been wearing masks for years to try to help from some of the, the spray and all of that. We know that the Corona, we do know that the Corona virus is microscopic. So that just can go through the mask, but can stop maybe some of the, the, the vapors from our, from our breath. And so maybe they could, I I'm, you know, trying to be balanced here. Maybe it could help to a certain degree. So if you feel safer with a mask on by gosh, you should wear them. 0 (7m 19s): And I'm glad that okay, two years ago, if I were to walk around with a mask and I know this is true, because I live in Seattle, I worked near the international district, which had a high Asian population, Adam, and there were people who walked around wearing masks and people would look at them like what? They must have some horrible disease that they would have a wide gun birth around them. Oh, I thought SARS was over. Right? So I'm glad that we're in a place now where people can wear a mask and not feel like they are a pariah. That's really good. I love that freedom because a mask can protect you from other things as well, if you need that protection. 0 (8m 7s): But if we do not exercise for those of us who are healthy, if we don't exercise our immune systems, our immune systems are like muscles. So if we're hand sanitizing everything, if we're germaphobes and we avoid everything, we, our immune system becomes weak, like a muscle that just like someone sitting on a couch, eating bond bonds, and I'm watching soap operas all day long, your muscles go into apathy and you become weaker. So does our immune system. So I wanted to, I wanted to think about that. I wanted to say that as we broadcast, because these things aren't being talked about, we're not talking about cutting out sugar. 0 (8m 53s): We're not because sugar absolutely rapes your immune system. So if you're afraid of COVID and if you're willing to wear a mask, be willing to give up sugar too, because that will protect you. I have, I have experienced COVID my immune system stronger for it. Was it fun? No, but I, I am a little bit more comfortable. And this is my personal choice with exposing my body, staying away from people, shutting myself up until I am no longer contagious. And then having a stronger immune system than I am connecting with a very experimental drug. 0 (9m 38s): Now, I want you to know that there was a phone conversation between a Madrona representative and a woman who had Gilliam Barre syndrome after receiving a matureness vaccine. And the maternal representative said, yeah, you know what everyone taking the COVID vaccine will, they're pretty much part of a clinical trial. If you choose to be part of that, you choose to be part of that. But why are we forcing people? Why are we shaming people when people are saying, you know what? I don't know, I'm not ready for this. 0 (10m 20s): I want to see what the long-term effects are. 2 (10m 24s): Well, typically you would volunteer to be a part of a clinical trial if it's literally like your last resort in now. Like, and unfortunately, you know, I've been there with family members that have kind of been in that, in that boat. But Michelle, as you said, there are so many other options. Natural immunity is a real thing. And we have a really good shot of being just fine. You know, especially if we are, you know, anywhere from age one to age 40 to 50, you know, it's, your, your chances are pretty good of, of winning this battle. Naturally. It's so wrong to use incomplete science and to use that, to then mandate things on, on a population of free people. 2 (11m 5s): Last I checked, we are a free group of people in this country, but these mandates are, are, are really taking away layers of freedom that it's not up to the government to do this kind of stuff. These mandates coming out of the president, mandating all federal employees to get the vaccine. You know, I was, I was in Washington DC very recently. And now we have met it's coming out of, out of DC, specifically where visitors that are on the Capitol property itself, including the complex, the office buildings. If you're not wearing a mask, you can get arrested by Capitol police. I guess that means my wife and I would have been arrested. Were we doing what we were doing there in DC now this week? You know, so this is just craziness to me to, to think that 0 (11m 48s): It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out legally. This does go back to that old argument from last year that if masks are so effective and you are wearing one, then why do I need to, if I feel that it's not effective, or if I have a respiratory issue or asthma, that that makes it difficult for me to breathe, or if I have panic attacks, because I feel like I'm being smothered, there's a host of medical reasons why you shouldn't wear a mask. 0 (12m 27s): There's a host of problems from continually wearing masks. Again, we do not expose ourselves to things that our immune system needs in order to stave off of infections and those so, you know, it's going to be interesting to me, not, not only as we debate this out outcome, but also as we go through some of the legal issues, is it truly legal to arrest someone for not wearing a mask? It would seem that they have cards, 2 (13m 4s): Sorry to me and Michelle and Michelle in California, you can walk into a retail store and you can shovel it in $950 worth of goods from the shelves into a bag, and then walk through the parking lot and go off wherever you're going without paying for that merchandise and not be arrested. But if you don't wear that mask by golly, we're going to arrest you. We're going to get you. That's crazy to me. I mean, what's what is going on. Like, it's just absolute madness to think that you have these, these local governments playing the game of politics to this, to this extreme. And it really, it makes it kind of, it shows just the root court. It's just laughable. It's 0 (13m 43s): True. And, and this is what I'd like you to ponder as you're watching or listening or reading today that I'm not opposed to masks. I, as I said, it's, it is a good option for people and they should have the freedom to do so, but that's the key word free, dumb to do. So we have this idea that we must force everyone into compliance when we don't always know the whole story. And so that, that to me is, is definitely a concern. We're seeing it more and more in the workplace. 0 (14m 24s): I wanted to, to mention that Thursday yesterday. No, I'm sorry, this last Thursday. So, you know, just a couple of days ago, Joe Biden said that he has ordered the military to start taking steps towards making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for uniformed service members. So it's not just the back. It's not just the, the mask. Now, if we can do the mass well, can certainly do the vaccine while, as we mentioned, it is still experimental. We don't know the long-term effects. And we mentioned last week that, oh yeah, go ahead. 2 (15m 7s): Go ahead. So wait, women are allowed to military, right? Yeah. Women, women are allowed in the military, right. And women can get pregnant. Right. Indeed. Huh. Okay. So we're just going to force them to get the vaccine. This, you know what? I don't care about the risks. I don't care that it's an experimental emergency approved, not FDA approved vaccine. We're just going to make you get that shot. That's just so ridiculous to me and man, I feel for those in the military that are being subjected to this, that's just, that's just ridiculous. 0 (15m 38s): Let me, let me give one more example, too. If you, if I might add them, you won't be able to see the sound bite, but you'll be, you will not be able to see the video, but you'll be able to hear the sound bite. The NFL, as we had mentioned last week is a really cracking down. If you want to play in the NFL. Yeah. You could not get vaccinated, but if there's a breakout, oh, you're going to pay. Even though we do know, we'll talk about this, that information that the vaccinated can carry and spread the virus still. We're going to demonize those who are not vaccinated. 0 (16m 19s): Here's what some of the NFL players have. The squares 4 (16m 22s): Around the NFL safety does not solely mean avoiding the COVID virus. You look around and almost everybody's either been vaccinated or in process. I'm currently in process right now. So that's where it's out. But yeah, I think the NFL has kind of made it clear what they want to happen. And if you don't fall in line, they're kind of trying to make your life kind of miserable, follow the protocols. So I think you're seeing the trend is if most guys are getting vaccinated, 0 (16m 52s): So that's fall in line or they are going to make your life absolutely undoubtedly miserable. So this is where we're at today and 2 (17m 7s): My kids get paid per game. 0 (17m 9s): Oh yeah. My question is this though. Healthcare workers, those who are in the NFL, if, and even in the military, well, military is quite different because they own your body in the military. They can shoot it up, whatever they, whatever they want, but in the private sector, Adam, if someone has one of these negative effects, there are, there are numbers with various around 6,000 people who have died from the vaccine. Some reports now are as much as 16,000, there have been extreme effects of their one new study. 0 (17m 57s): That's 62% of those who were, were studied, had some kind of blood clotting where your red blood cells go from round to kind of discs and then they will stick together. So the thought is within the next three to five years, that's going to have a qualitive effect. And so you'll see people dropping from heart attacks and things. That's what happens though, when you're in clinical trials, you see how things, you don't always know how it's going to affect the body. Think of it. As you're watching, listening to reading, as, as kind of this experiment, we don't know what's going to happen. Think of COVID. We didn't, we don't know how COVID is going to affect each individual person in my household. 0 (18m 41s): Everyone who had it had some similar, but some very different affects. And it's the same with a vaccine. And we don't know why. Oh, it could it be because they are have this blood type. Could it be a, for any number of reasons? So when you wrap your head around this, this is why we keep educating our vaccines. Good. Yes. Vaccines can be very good, but if you are trying to shut down the conversation, you're not helping to make vaccine better, stronger, and safer. That's why we must have these conversations. So back to my question, Adam, in the private sector, if we see some of these negative effects, if we see people who are paralyzed for life losing, and we've seen this losing feeling and use of their lower extremity, summertime's their hands Bell's palsy, which paralyzes part of your face. 0 (19m 43s): Some of these blood clotting, if you were forced to get a vaccine, do you have in ne legal retort against the company for making you do that? Because you could just quit your job and go somewhere else. But how real real is that if I'm a nurse or if I'm a football player, that is my job. I don't have really a choice. Will there be legal retort? 2 (20m 14s): It's a, it's a, that's an incredible legal question. You know, and I know that in cases like a pandemic, oftentimes the government does provide sorts of types of legal communities to, to litigation that might come from things like that. But man, Michelle is that it is a great question because I just don't know. But, but you know, I also don't understand why, you know, a company has to go and infringe on the privacy and the nature of, of an individual's health when it should be that individual's decision whether or not to, to seek out a vaccination, to deal with things naturally. 0 (20m 52s): Or if you had, I'm just going to take a challenge on that because, you know, I want to play devil's advocate and be balanced here. If there is an outbreak and we can do something to save lives, if you know, the Zam, pop, ellipse, whatever. I mean, we're seeing that, that COVID has about the, now we do know the same numbers as the flu, and we didn't go into absolute lockdown in panic mode because of the flu. But let's just say there is something that is an extreme risk to, to public health. And for some, they truly believe that COVID is so we'll, we'll, we'll go with that if that's the case then. 0 (21m 40s): Yeah. But, but if it's something that could concern a, if it's something that could be detrimental to your health and B, what we know now is that people who have been vaccinated can carry the virus can still get sick, can still die. We know this to be true. We also have our finding that in some cases, the vaccine is only good for six weeks, and then you're going to need a booster. So there's so much, we don't know yet to force it on people without a sense of knowing 2 (22m 20s): Without really knowing. Yeah, we don't force, we don't, we don't mandate the flu shots every year. You know, we offer them, but we don't mandate them. And of course, like if we were talking about something that was like Ebola, you know, or something that we know is, is absolutely terrible and you can't come back from it. There's definitely a reason to make a mandate of sorts. But with COVID specifically, we just don't know everything yet. And we also just, aren't able to trust information sources that we typically should be able to trust because this has been so terribly politicized. So, you know, the fact that you have people like, can you, 0 (22m 57s): Can you imagine for one moment, and then NFL player who suddenly loses all feeling and ability to use his legs because of the vaccine, what happens then? Does he, does he get to Sue the NFL for forcing him into this or does, this is where vaccines are good, but forcing them on people, you know, not such a good thing. 2 (23m 30s): There's not a lot of room. There's not a lot of remedy for opportunity costs, you know? Cause like you said, an athlete, right, man, what if the athlete is a few plays away from performing, you know, in such a way that leads to the contract of that particular athletes life, you know, like I think you're in the choir, you know, it's just like, are you one injury away from the next biggest decision of your, of your business? Or are you one play away from the next business decision, the next biggest business decision of your future? That's kind of the stakes that these athletes live by. And so to go mandate them to go and do something like to potentially harm their ability to catch a ball or to kick something or to dunk something or what have you. I mean, yeah. That's like a real concern, especially considering that we know already naturally those, those particular individuals are able to, their bodies operate like Ferrari's right. 2 (24m 21s): They can do a lot of things that we can't do. They can get over the flu in like a day. So, you know, to, to, to Prive that person, that athlete this person who has invested so much time into their own personal health, to the private of them, have the choice to use their machine, their body to, to go and fight this naturally I think is ridiculous. Especially when we, we don't know what's real, we know what's been imposed by her government. We know, we also know that the mask thing, right, Dr. Fowchee himself said, masks don't do it. But, but now here we are in, in July of 2021 and, and the masks are back on the table for, for mandates. So yeah, it's a hard discussion, I think. 2 (25m 2s): Excellent. 0 (25m 5s): You, you say that masks are now the new reality, but there are some places not so much governor Newsome has, you know, all state employees and healthcare workers on one hand. But then, you know, we're looking at Texas, we're looking at Florida places where they're saying, you know what, w we are not going to make masks mandatory. You cannot do that. I, I think that that kind of experiment is great. If we're willing to experiment on perfectly healthy people with an unknown vaccine, we should feel comfortable. 0 (25m 53s): Experimenting. Sweden was a great experiment. Their numbers were really no different and they didn't shut down, locked down, mask up and, and force things on people. We're seeing the same things with, with your state with Florida. Yeah. There's outbreaks brothers outbreaks everywhere, you know, Washington state. We have the highest numbers and we're one of the most conservative, or I wouldn't say conservative. I didn't mean it in that sense of politically, but we have conservatively locked people down and have had more stringent rules. 2 (26m 31s): Correct. One thing you said you pronounced his name, Newsome. The Italian in me says, oh, you actually pronounce it new Soline. I mean, this guy is like a dictator, right? Hey, governor Mussolini over here with the mandate. Yeah. I mean, it's really kind of crazy. And also just ironic to see that, you know, a lot of these spikes are taking places in the same places that are led by a lot of these extreme Democrats in power. But, but it's, what is the result from this Delta variant? Are we seeing a lot of hospitalizations? Are we seeing a lot of deaths? We know it spreads, but we also know COVID spreads. I mean, it's, it's a virus. 2 (27m 11s): So when it comes to Texas and Florida, when it comes to a little bit of civil disobedience, or just saying, you know what, guys, we don't think it's right for the government to make this decision. You know, let's also REL kind of reconcile things here. It was a lot of the more conservative states. I mean, conservative, conservative, politically that didn't have the higher death rates from the first wave of COVID. These are the states that didn't conform to a lot of the same shutdown rules that a lot of them were Democrat led states did conform to. So governor Abbott he's, he's not saying, you know, don't wear masks. That's not what he's saying. He's saying the government cannot tell you to not wear masks. So, you know, it's okay for small businesses to make those decisions. 2 (27m 52s): And this is really being consistent with, with kind of governor Abbott's position since the beginning, it's him saying, listen, it's not the place of government to mandate this. It's the place of you as individual citizens, as small businesses to decide what's right for you. And that's okay, but here we are Twitter, right? The Twitter mob, and there's a hashtag going around. And right now it's Abbott failed Texas. Again, no, come on. I mean, we're talking about a state here that is dealing with the border crisis where you have COVID positive border crossers that are being released by the federal officials into major, major towns and population. So we're talking about rising COVID cases, where's it coming from, right? 2 (28m 33s): Yeah. That's not a problem. You know, like there's a lot of hypocrisy going around here and, but, but, but the trend is that it's coming from the federal officials and then also a lot of the Democrat leaders that are not centrist by any means their extreme left governor, new Salini governor Cuomo is talking about knocking on your door, throwing you in a car and putting a needle in your arm almost by force. It's kind of what is rhetoric implies? So, you know, in America, yeah, please. 0 (29m 6s): One of the highest numbers of, of the, our population that are against this kind of force of injection happens to be evangelical Christians. And people will say now, why is that? So I wanted to address that for just a moment. It not all evangelical Christians, toad, this idea a lot are saying, Hey, you know, this is a good thing to do, get a vaccine, protect yourself. And that the idea of protecting yourself and protecting others right on, we had our, our vice presidents decide that now all of a sudden, the word of God has a value and said, this is the exact essence of love by neighbor. 0 (29m 52s): You know? And in, in some ways there's some truth there, loving your neighbor, protecting your neighbor. There is some truth there, but doing it likening God's word to a vaccine, that's unproven to force people is using the Bible dub, beat people up with, so why is it that evangelicals are, are, are resistant? And they think there's a resistance because many of us that grew up in the church went to Sunday school, watch the left behind movies. And if you're one of those, you know exactly what I'm talking about. We're in the end times, the Bible has a, as a prediction, prophecy of the rise of the antichrist and the mark of the beast, which will be a, a system where you cannot buy, sell, or trade without a mark, that's put on your right hand or your forehead. 0 (30m 51s): That's how we're assuming that they read it. There has been recently technology that would put microchipping and information, health information to see if you're really vaccinated or not. For example, into injections. Now there is a mistaken idea and a rumor going on around the evangelical ma community that the vaccines already have this technology in it. I am telling you, no, it does not. They're not, they're not microchipping you like, like your puppy yet, but there is that idea that that's where we're going, forced injections. 0 (31m 36s): You cannot work. You cannot buy, you cannot sail. You cannot trade. Unless you have this thing, we want to track you. We want to be able to scan your information. People see this and they say, wow, you know, okay, am I crazy? But this is looking a little bit like something out of the book of revelations in times, mark of the beast antichrist. And so there is this resistance to go wait, okay. Let's just back up for just a moment, right? It's that for the evangelicals for a lot of other people, it just seems like people control. 0 (32m 17s): And that's scary for people when you've lived in a free society. 2 (32m 22s): How does snow right on Michelle? Cause there is a, there are, you look for indicators, right? And you're like, wow, that's an indicator and that's an indicator. And then you put all these pieces together and you throw them up on a corkboard and you're just like, wow, is this really what's going on here? What is the motivation behind all of them? They sure are. And you know what it's kind of, so I say this with kind of a little bit of laughter behind my face. I'm trying not to laugh, but I'm laughing on this next little story here because my brother actually was on a flight from Dallas to Los Angeles. He took off at about eight this morning and I know how he feels about Fowchee. I know how he feels about masks and I know what he had to do to get on that flight and not get arrested. 2 (33m 3s): And so thinking of this next story here, and it's about the fact that people are revolting against these, these injustices that we're seeing in the public. And you know, there's, we've seen the headlines recently about unruly passengers on flights and actually on Twitter right now, there's this hashtag going around, which has hashtag do not comply. And there's a statistic. A statistic now came out 84% of flight attendants have dealt with unruly passengers. 17% have experienced a physical incident. And so far the FAA has had more than 3,600 complaints, inclusive of verbal attacks, Sikh kicking, throwing trash at the crew. And Michelle, majority of what's going on here, 66% of these incidents has to do with this federal mask mandate. 2 (33m 46s): People are sick of it and people are refusing to go back to 2020. People are refusing to go back to the dark times of the government shutdowns. And so third of all, small businesses during the government mandates went out of business because of the mandate. Exactly. So we're not going back to that and people are just angry over it. And that's why you have this, these, these, these crazy flight situations. And, and that was going to happen. Now we have schools coming up, 0 (34m 14s): Part of the, the frustration on airplanes and I've been traveling a lot is the idea that if I'm drinking or if I'm eating, you know, suddenly I can't spread the virus. Now I know you have to think that the idea behind that is that keep it on as much as you can. You know, we're w we'll, we'll stave off a little bit. It might help, but you're in an enclosed plane. So either, you know, you're spreading it. If, if you can spread it without a mask and you're eating or drinking, you are spreading it. That's just the way it is. 2 (34m 52s): And those aircraft actually have incredible air filtration systems. You know, if you think about like, okay, all the, all the human flashlights that takes place on an airplane air filtration system on those airplanes is so incredible that like it does filter out viruses. It does filter out bacteria and molds and, and you know, the stinky result of the, of the passenger next to you. So, so to think that I can literally patch and can filter out COVID from one road to another is also not true. Yeah. I can understand that a mask particles and things, but if we're vaccinated, hashtag do not comply. Yeah. I mean, they're already checking to make sure that you either don't have a temperature or that you've been vaccinated. 2 (35m 36s): So, you know, if you've vaccinated, you know, you're probably going to be fine. I mean, there's really no reason to not let the passenger who's vaccinated or who has had COVID and now has the antibodies naturally to travel. I mean, statistically, that person is not going to have any issues of any sort. And if they do, they should be fairly mild just based on the statistics that we have seen, the, the federal government has to catch up. And, and so far as trying to take two steps back when really most of Americans are trying to take two steps forward, we're ready to, 0 (36m 7s): Oh, it's not just America though. There have been protests all over the world. You're in, unless you can really find these things. You're not seeing them even in France, which tends to, you know, comply with everything. People are saying, no, Australia has some of the most extreme. We, we want you in. If you have to go out and you see your neighbor, don't say hello to them, don't greet them. I mean, this is, you're just looking at this and it's a real, in fact, there are five in Sydney during their lockdown. 0 (36m 49s): These fines are doubled now, and police are given extra powers to shut down businesses and work sites. If you are not following the rules, people all over the world, pushing back, 2 (37m 5s): Well, you know, Michelle, if you can, and here's like the socialist position, right. If we can push the people down and make them dependent on the government for everything, then we control everything. And that's what this book has been. And so to now see people kind of recognizing what's going on and pushing back against that. I mean, France had, well, almost like a two year shutdown, just, just absolute insanity. How can you take away freedom to conduct commerce and to live your life and to go to church and to just do the things that you do to be happy and to, and to, to live. How can you take that away from, from an entire population for almost it's, it's, it's really mind blowing. So to think that there's not going to be a rule against this injustice, you know, it's just unrealistic, right? 2 (37m 50s): So yeah, this is kind of like the result of that. We're not going back to 2020. 0 (37m 54s): Nope. Nope, we aren't. But if, and, and just a moment, we're going to talk about social media and how they are like to keep status quo, but real quick, I want to give a little shout out to one of my sponsors here. It is Calla Tren way. Let's get it here, where you can actually see it without the background. Calla Tran is a fountain of youth in the bottle. Calla Tran is a collagen supplement it's so you think of it easily for hair, skin, and nails, energy, clarity of mind and all of these things. But during the time of COVID I got through COVID because my, I had been boosting my immune system. 0 (38m 36s): One of the things that CA COVID does is mess with your mind clarity. There are a lot of things that does that collagen, which we lose exponentially as we get older college and can stave off. Why do you think younger people have bigger resistance and fewer symptoms? Hmm. Think about that for a moment and go to my Michelle live, where you can pick up Kaletra and it's, it's one of them. It's like my best friend. I love it when people 2 (39m 4s): Great for the body. Great for the skin. Yeah. 0 (39m 6s): And I love it when people think I'm 20 years younger because I 10 years younger also, and I, I <inaudible> and then taking care of yourself. So there you go. That's a message. One more message, because we might as well, real bearded men. This is for you 3 (39m 25s): Get lost in his forest, citrus, Piney, beard oil from real bearded email@example.com. 0 (39m 34s): There you go right there. So if you ever grow it out, you want, you want her to play with it. There you go. You got to get, 2 (39m 43s): It's really important to maintain that beard. You know, I mean, it's really easy to have like a ratty kind of nasty looking beard, and that doesn't, that doesn't do anything for anybody. It makes you look kind of crappy when you're trying to like, you know, just be out schmoozing and it makes you look bad in the workplace when you maintain that beard. I mean, good things happen, right? People know that that's a person who takes pride in how they look. And, you know, you're not going to find food from yesterday and a beard like that, 0 (40m 11s): Unless you're just saving snacks. So I wanted to something kind of interesting judicial watch story, where the CDC coordinated with Facebook on COVID messaging and moose information. Let's take that on. 2 (40m 28s): No, this isn't gonna surprise a lot of y'all, but our, our guy over there at judicial watch Tim Fenton, he's really doing it. And so he filed a freedom of information request with big tech and judicial watch got almost 2,500 pages of documents from the CDC that show a lot of back and forth communication between the CDC and those at Facebook, Twitter, and Google. And it shows really what they've been doing to try and control the COVID narrative. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube together gave over three and a half million dollars of free advertising to the CDC. So basically giving them access and then just a huge amount of spending power to make sure that their messaging was front and center in front of each and every one of us. 2 (41m 10s): So that we saw what they wanted us to see documents showed us really, really specific collusion on really the CDC saying, well, users are saying things like this. You should probably not let them say that. And Facebook happily saying, okay, no problem. We're going to shut them down. There's there's one email in particular was talking about, Facebook's like kind of three-pronged approach to controlling the narrative and it includes their, their involvement and their, of those third party fact checkers. And when I say third party, I'm thinking it with air quotes, the third-party fact checkers who, when you look at who their funding is, I mean, PolitiFact is a problem. That's one of their bigger fact checkers on has been found to be wrong time and time. Again, very often discriminating against libertarian and conservative thought. 2 (41m 52s): So that's a little bit weird, but that's one of the fact checkers that CDC and Facebook have been relying on tremendously. They've provided ad credits to the world health organization and organization that has been very buddy-buddy with China and Chinese officials. And really hasn't worked very hard to help us uncover the truth of what happened in Wu Han. And so Facebook's kind of doing their part to make sure they take care of their comrades. They're empowering the CDC and Facebook and the communities in general, with data tools to kind of expose the public to the right information, being the information that they want us to see. There was this one email that was uncovered and this freedom of information request that showed an email from the CDCs chief of staff. 2 (42m 37s): Her name is Sherri Berger, and it was an email from her thinking Facebook for this $2 million ad credit that they got. I mean, Michelle, $2 million of advertising on one of these platforms as needed. All 0 (42m 56s): Right, let me, let me, it's an 2 (42m 59s): Incredibly powerful ad campaign. Let, let 0 (43m 2s): Me put this in perspective. Having worked in radio and television for many years, Adam, if there were, was a campaign or a S something of this nature of anything political, think of politicians who want to get the N no, I approve this mission. My name's Michelle Mendoza, and I approve this message. You, you have to, by FCC regulations, allow their opposition to purchase ads. If they want as well. You cannot close that out. There's a reason for that because that's kind of balanced gives you, okay, is this what's going on? 0 (43m 43s): What's really happening. Think of it as science, when you have a scientific issue and you say, it's settled science, you cannot challenge this. Science never grows. We would still think the earth is flat. We would still have misconstrued ideas unless someone said, no, wait a minute, wait a minute. What about this? Oh, no, no, no. You may not challenge this. You, this is settled. That is one of the most dangerous things to our society. So while you are watching and you're going to comment and you're going to say, oh, she's just her conservative. And she, so she believes this, which I care about being called a conservative. 0 (44m 24s): I've been called a lib tarred, whatever, you know, for it depends on where you are on the eyes. What I hate is when you tell me what I think I bothers me. And, but you'll do that. I know it's going to happen. Well, 2 (44m 40s): You know, come on, talk about an imbalance. I mean, literally the inventor of MRNs vaccines, one of the most credentialed medical researchers in our, in our country, they literally shut him down. Robert Malone his account. So, you know, the CDC is able to say literally anything they want, let's not forget the CDC. 0 (45m 1s): I'm sure Dana repped you, Adam. But I want to talk about why he was shut down because a lot of people aren't hearing this story either, 2 (45m 11s): Right? Absolutely. He was just asking honest academic questions about really the type of value that he helped create. You know? So when you have the, the, one of the guys who was credited with being the inventor of Mr. Vaccines, and he's asking honest academic questions, just like this, the previous CDC director asking honest academic questions that they believe the scientific community should look into, literally you can't ask those kinds of questions and that's a huge problem. And I think that, I guess it impacts the narrative that the CDC is trying to impose on country. When you're asking questions, he 0 (45m 52s): Think about this, the creator, one of the creators of the RNA vaccine shut down from social media for asking questions, for posing some ideas that we should debate by whom little, little college grads at Facebook, with political leanings who don't have the same for teas. That to me, is something we should be concerned about. Even if, if his questions are turned out to be erroneous, even if his, if we should not be afraid the debate, but yet we are 2 (46m 32s): Okay. Michelle, like when I have, when you have a question coming from someone like that, and then, and then a software engineer or a social media manager at Facebook says, oh, well, this guy can't ask that kind of question. Like, who are they to say that this expert, this, this credentialed expert with over 11,000 academic citations and over a hundred of over a hundred peer reviewed publications in his field, like how can that guy not be the one to ask that kind of question? It's just like, it's the most ridiculous thing ever. And it's a huge trend though, throughout all of big tech, I mean, Twitter was giving its, its access to the promoted trend or the promoted tweet section to the CDC. 2 (47m 14s): So when you, when you, when you log into Twitter and you're, you know, as a user, you're trying to see what's going on in the world, the CDC can literally take over the trend section and say, well, this is what's going on with COVID and this is what you should do with COVID. And, and they can also use data that your location and say, here's, what's going on in Texas. Here's what's going on in Seattle or here's what's going on in Florida. And so they can use that to create urgency around why you should do what it is that they want you to do. And this is all stuff that is, it happened, right? The emails are there between these, these organizations and the CDC. So there's no question about whether or not they used a big tech platforms to influence our population. 2 (47m 54s): They definitely did. And it shows how those who are in our political establishment are basically glued to the hip, to the big tech platforms that these big tech platforms are not operating like private organizations. They're just not, they're operating like megaphones from now the Biden administration. And, and that's a really dangerous reality to come to terms with that a small business or a small researcher can with that sort of messaging. Good luck. 0 (48m 23s): Yeah. If you like it, if you think, well, this is a good thing because they're getting out good information. Just think of how you would feel if they were arm of the Maga group, if they were our arm of, of Donald Trump, you wouldn't like it that much. Do you know why? I know that there's a thing called party. There was a thing called parlor, 2 (48m 46s): Right, right. Once upon a time parlor was, was around. And then, and then the same just right. I guess there was, it was days after they were number one in the app store, you know, both for Google play and in the iOS app store days after being number one, literally out of business. Like that is just so crazy to me to think that apple, Amazon and Google could collaborate and collude to take down a competitor. Really, Michelle, this happened just months after Twitter inked a multi-million dollar multi-year hosting deal with Amazon to basically host the tweets that kind of take place on their platform. So you see this business relationship, but then you also know that there's a political relationship on top of that. And when, when, when one comes to spread a message, that's a little bit different. 2 (49m 30s): They shut it down, man. They shut it down real fast. And it's concerning how we're supposed to operate here. Well, if you think about this too, this is going on now in Hong Kong, you see how China has taken over outlets of free speech in Hong Kong to now further assert control over those who once used to live under freedom. There, there was the, the daily apple that that was a, one of the bigger publications over there. You had a tax on their printing press, which is like a very expensive piece of equipment. You had people that were thugs going in at night and, and literally destroying the office of these publications, attacking their journalist
My Michelle live podcast. Yes, it is the mind Michelle live podcast, where we take on world news of the world what's going on in the world and you
Are not hearing. Yeah. There's a lot of that stuff going on. There's a lot of stuff that you are not, and it used to be, you were just not hearing it now it's just outright banned. So what we do, right? What we do is something that maybe you're not used to anymore. And that is that we will take on stories, facts, figures, double-check them look into them and then try to report them with balance because you're not getting now the other places. So looking at some of the news that made news this week, we're going to be taking it on today as we do.
I want to welcome our friend, Adam Rivieri, as we look at, as we look at a week in review, how are you doing Adam?
Doing great, doing great. It's been quite a week, a lot of news this week. And so it's always great to sort of, you notice, take a breath and just kind of like come to terms with all the craziness that's happening, all these shenanigans in our world,
Easiness that we're going to be taking as it just, I gotta, I gotta get this in because yeah,
Let's review the week with Adam brews a year.
Michelle. Thank goodness. I can sit here and come to terms with the reality of our week with you. I mean,
It's almost cathartic, isn't it?
It is. It is. It really is man, quite, quite, quite a few things to go over today. And so I'm, I'm, I'm excited to break it down with.
Yeah, we have, of course you can watch our sports report on Fridays where we talked a little bit about some of the wokeness in sports, some of the issues with the vaccine and sports, there are so much, and they they're so interwoven as you're watching or listening with politics and wokeness that it begs us to take it on as the Olympics kick off. So does the crazy
That's right. That's right. With the Olympics comes the crazy and you know, go figure that just today. Just, it was just announced that the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the Cleveland, you know? So I think there's a few things that we can sort of point to leading up to the, the crazy of the Olympics and
There until the gold metal stuff and a little bit
Oh yeah, well and the Olympics and their, their, their anti-sex beds, which it was debunked by an Irish gymnast, but all sorts of craziness around the Olympics themselves. Yeah, just a minute ago, Michelle, I caught this headline that the Cleveland Indians have come to terms with what they are going to be moving forward and listen, I'm no, I'm no opponent to change. I think change can be a good thing, but, but, you know, it's like, what is the reason for that change and where are we trying to go with that change? So the Cleveland Indians, they changed their name today to the Cleveland guardians that's official, but this is kind of following this trend of, you know, rewriting history, this trend of getting rid of cultural icons and figures that help us kind of make sense of where we are today and where we're going tomorrow.
We already saw this year, the Washington Redskins are now the Washington football club. You know, that changed didn't make them any better. They still kind of suck no lakes remove the beautiful native American woman from their, their, their logo. And, you know, that was something that growing up as a kid, I remember just kind of like looking to that particular logo in the grocery store, you know, and I saw that as like this item of that was high quality. And whenever I use that kind of butter, like man, something great was about to happen, be it pancakes or cookies or something. Great. So to sort of see kind of like this revisionist or this, this kind of rereview icons that we've come to to really appreciate it.
I think over time, it's kind of concerning so much. So that Jeep is going to get rid of potentially the Cherokee model, like rename it the brave. I mean, I'm not really sure
This is something that we need to think about and think about seriously, you don't have sucky mascots for your sports teams. Okay. This is the, so first of all, we're not talking about trying to disrespect a people when you have, I mean, I don't see anyone trying to take out the fighting Irish, you know, this is kind of a bad ass idea of, you know, this is something that we want to attain to. This is something that we say is awesome. We are the Indians as though it's something to be proud of.
We have, if you remember, oh, it was just two years ago. I want to say that a girl that found a Chinese dress in a vintage shop wore to prom and she was lambasted. Culture is not your prom dress. Well, actually yes it is. And I don't, we understand why we've to a ridiculous place in our nation where we seem to think that everybody hates each other. But when you do a way with cultural interaction and you are no longer allowed them, I mean, Adam, I don't think you're Hispanic enough to eat tacos.
So texted enough, even tacos. I'll tell you that when we eat the food of another of another culture, when we have interaction and, and an understanding, sometimes it can be silly. Yeah. You know, the sombreros on, on the 5th of May Cinco de Mayo. But when we had that kind of interaction, Adam, don't you think that what it really does is helps us to have an appreciation, to have a better understanding to integrate it into our, our own psyche
Question. Because I think as we develop just technologically and just as a society, we start to lose some of those things that really we kind of grew from. And if you think about some of the sports teams over time and some of the great ones that still today continue to exist, I mean, what is it, the Florida state Seminoles, right? I mean, they are called the Seminoles for a reason. The Seminole nation was right there. Right there, there are, there are names that we come up with for, for team mascots. And like you said, Michelle, these aren't like, no, one's trying to make fun of these names. Everybody's trying to like get behind this name as something that they appreciate and that they rally around and that they look to as they, as they try to March towards victory supporting a team that is supporting a geographic central location of people.
Not integrate the, the geographics and the people of that area into those sports teams to create better awareness and cultural appreciation. Instead of calling a cultural appropriation, let's call it cultural appreciation. Why not have that happen in a stronger, more powerful way so that we have a better appreciation of indigenous people? What's the problem with that? I don't quite get that because it almost seems like we're just trying to wipe away anything having to do with American India.
Well, in a world where we literally have the attention span that is less than that of a goldfish, according to measure, you know, like we, we will very quickly forget things, you know, we're onto the next headline. We're onto the next, the next headline that says, oh my gosh, Kim Kardashians just broke the internet again. I mean, you know, we forget things really quickly and we move on to the next, right. So why not have a team mascot that helps remind us of, of times past and helps also kind of encourage people to go back and research, you know, the why behind certain team names, right? There's a reason why, well, at one point the Brooklyn Dodgers were the Dodgers, right? There's a reason why, you know, at one point the Lakers were the Lakers they were, and they didn't come from LA by way.
Right. So, you know, you look into the history of these team names and there is a historical context there that I think these mascots help us kind of just to find inspiration as to why we should go and research something. Right. So, you know, it's kind of, it's really sad. And frankly, concerning to see how this we're kind of taking place. I think to myself, what's next, right? It's one thing after, after the other, the Atlanta Braves, are they next? You know, we already saw Washington, their basketball team, right. They, they were the bullets and other than the wizards, but before we went
These, he's not any safer. Now that they're the wizards. I mean, there's still, there's still a lot of gunshots there. Yeah. It's like, whoa, to think that changing a team name can change the outcome of a, of a societal reality is just not the truth. Right?
So here we are totally appropriate. And I'm going to, I mean, it's, I'm going to just say this, it wouldn't be wholly appropriate if the team was being slammed or if the, the Braves were, if the Indians were being made fun of if they were, if it were completely derogatory or, or, you know, how, how people can characterize to a place where it's inappropriate, not okay. I agree with that. That's not okay to make fun of a culture in a derogatory, not okay, but that's not really what sports is about.
It's about venerating. It's, it's about exalting. It's about praising. It's about we're bad
Ass. Yeah. Well, sports is a, is an amazing thing for our country in particular, you know, sports was a big part of racial integration in our, in our country. Sports put people of different backgrounds and races and ethnicities on the same field of play and allow them to compete based on who was better at this and that. Right. And from that comes appreciation for one another. And then at the end of the game, you know, you, you, you talk about, oh man, that one play was so cool or, oh, I'll get you next time. You know, you guys did a great job, but we'll get you next time. So it's like, it's really sad to see sort of, you know, kind of, I guess the, the political context of our, of our 20, 21, right. Take over sports. And we already saw how it impacted MLB right.
Major league baseball, moving the all-star game from Atlanta to Denver, you know, in the name of, of racial equity, which I think equity has kind of a bogus term. It's equality is what we want to shoot for man. Like they deprived a local economy in Atlanta of a hundred,
Mostly minority businesses in preference to white city in Denver with, by the way, similar laws.
I think, I think Boulder is 3% not white as far as the, the, the, the business consistency there in terms of ownership. So yeah. Like why would you do that, man? It's just, it's just fireman, Fred fireman friend. He's got to go, but you know, this, this trend, Michelle, obviously we're seeing it now kind of take over the Olympic spirit. You know, we have the games now in Tokyo and controversy. Controversy is no stranger to the Olympics, right there. There've been all sorts of shenanigans, kind of following the Olympics over time. And you know, I think to Tokyo right now, Tokyo right now is, and it's, I guess it's their fourth state of emergency from coronavirus, right?
They're their state of emergency right now is expected to run through middle or end of August. And a poll said that a majority of citizens in Tokyo actually don't want the Olympics to take place right now. They're like, Hey, maybe we should postpone this to, I don't know, like next year, maybe, but the show must go on. And so the games are going to obviously play out as, as planned, but not without controversy the Olympics, they brought, man. They brought people back together shooting the 19 Lincoln 36 games. Michelle, I think back in Berlin, that's what that was. Hitler's third year in power. You know, you had the Olympics kind of being used as a way to, well, here's a, here's a positive thing.
American track and field athlete, Jesse Owens dominated those games got four golds. Despite, you know, the junk that the Nazi regime was trying to spread through the world. 1968, the Olympics were in Mexico. There was a, a, a massacre that, that proceeded that where the Mexican army actually shot a bunch of student demonstrators. I know there've been a lot of movies about this one in 1972, the Munich yeah. Stage 11 of them were, were killed by these terrorists. Yeah. The funny one I think is, well, not funny, but like, man, it's just like, it's just like one of those trailer park stories of like Nancy Kerrigan and, and Tonya Harding, you know, I'm not attacking you with a tire iron and get you to stop beating me.
And that actually happened in 94, the Beijing Olympics, Michelle, 2008. I was actually in Beijing before the Olympics took place there. And I building the Olympic village. I watched them building the stadium there. And I saw firsthand that the workers that China was using to build the entire Olympic village, the entire Olympic experience, they were forced to live at the construction site and terrible conditions trying to obviously has no positive track record for human rights. They're not exactly the nicest when it comes to treating people fairly. So, you know, it's, as we get past Tokyo and we look to the next games coming up in China, I've already heard a lot of people saying, you know what, guys, maybe we should add those Olympics.
We're not going to ban them. We're not going to ban those Olympics anymore than we're going to sanction China on anything that is taking place. Their rise to world dominance is on our American max. And it is absolutely crazy. It's crazy to watch what's happening in, in Japan with COVID, especially considering if you've spent much time in Japan, a good majority of people were wearing masks before. Well, I wouldn't say a majority of say a good percentage of wore masks before COVID was even a thing.
You know, that sanitation
It's incredible. It's was incredible. How clean Tokyo is for being a large, large city. I mean, I remember when I flew from China to Tokyo, I took a shower in the Tokyo airport, and man, it felt great because the air quality in China is so bad. You just feel it on your skin. It's just kinda nasty Tokyo cleanliness. That's a thing. And, but I mean that doesn't stop the Rona, right? Just like the mask.
Did you shower before taking a bath and very true, but there are a lot of weird things that are, that are happening and the politics that have made their way into sports and sports, particularly the Olympics is huge. A big deal. The U S women's soccer team, the starting 11 kneeling before the national Anthem. I refuse to watch, I'm sorry, on that level. It's bad enough when it's here in our country and you're trying to make your statement, but you're going there representing that flag.
If you cannot represent it and stand in pride for it, don't go. As you're watching there's many of you who are watching, especially in our live version that may disagree with that. I'd love to hear from you. Although, you know, what's there to say you don't like the country don't represent it. There's a, there's a lot of other countries you can go and represent.
I think the thing is, is love it or leave it, right? There's plenty of other places that don't have the same freedoms and luxuries. And
Wait, wait, wait, are you talking about privilege? Because as we talk about white privilege, we are namely idiotic. If we don't think that every single person who was born under the freedom of the United States flag is not more privileged than anyone else on the entire planet. Why do you think we are? We even had the conversation about building a wall. You don't see people rushing to get into Cuba, which we'll talk a little bit about today. Venezuela. We're not just pounding down those doors. There was a reason
Daily basis just for work. I communicate with people on two other continents outside of north. And without question, we are the country to beat. I mean, we are the best country in the world for a reason. And it is because of our, of our, of our societal norms and our systems and the way we appreciate diversity of thought and the way we can evolve and change and respect majority rule, button, minority rights, you know, that that's what allows our system to work, to be able to ask questions, that's what lets us work. And, and that's what lets us become so hard to beat, frankly, because we can kind of went up ourselves time and time again. And so when we saw team USA, Neil, you know, I think there were only three people in the entire team that didn't kneel.
Let me correct. That it would seem that there was the, let me just correct. That it would seem that there was not that some reports of a, of a picture of a few standing was from February.
Okay. They got me there, but you know, Michelle, when they lost it made it really hard to be sad about that loss. It was just like, well, you know what? They didn't, they don't love our country anyway. So, you know, okay, well next, you know, I'll go watch swimming and gymnastics.
Let's talk about something you mentioned. And that's Jesse Owens. He was encouraged to not compete in those Olympics to boycott those Olympics because of the treatment of Jews, the treatment of blacks, and even how black Americans were treated in the United States. At that time in history, he was encouraged to make a statement by staying home. Instead he made the statement that was so powerful for gold medals and standing proudly. Our nation stands for Liberty and justice for all.
There is not Liberty and justice for all, but this is what we attain to. This is what we believe in. This is what we will be fighting for. And we need to actually hand in hand and side by side and not with some claims that you are treated differently. You have more freedom than I do that simply is pitting Americans against Americans and United. We stand divided. We fall, go ahead, Adam.
There are two of the goals that, that Mr. Owens won, there actually were goals that they were actually events that Jewish American athletes were actually going to compete in. But they actually said, Hey, you know what, you're the best person for this job. We want you to go win a gold against these terrible Nazis.
There was some politics that were going that were going on there that disabled Jewish Americans from competing in the region. Yeah.
And they're like, you go win gold Jessie. And he did. You want to go 19 36, 19 36. Isn't that incredible? It's incredible. Michelle, just to think about that,
It's really incredible to think of where we were then and where we are now and how we forgotten what our country really does stand for.
Well, and, and how do we, how do we get to a point where, so, so many people in our country that mostly just read headlines and not the actual content of articles. How did we get to a point where we celebrate a guy who wears Che Guevara, Fidel Castro on a shirt and kneels for the flag kneels for the Anthem? How did we get to a point where companies like Nike get huge sponsorship or form huge sponsorship deals with a person like Colin Kaepernick, you know, to go from the, the bravery, the excellence of Jesse Owens. Oh my gosh. To the max, because as mark Cuban says, China's a customer. How did we go from Jesse Owens to Colin Kaepernick? I mean, what a, what a fall from grace?
How did we go from Martin Luther king Jr. To gosh, Patrice Khan. Kohler's I mean, what happened there? It's like, it's such a, it's such a detour. It's such a,
I'm privileged and we're spoiled and we take it for granted. And that's something that I say is part of the problem. Politics weaving its way into places it's never really traditionally been before, seems to have a drastic, dramatic, and terrible effect. The NFL. That is something we talked about on Friday as well. The NFL wa is a warning teams that a COVID 19 outbreak might result in forfeit the games for those who have the unvaccinated. If you have unvaccinated on your, on your team, you're the one they have to forfeit.
If you have 10 on vaccinated, and this team only has to you, how unfair, because we really don't know where the outbreak came from. And I, I wanted to give you, as you're watching today, some information hold onto it before it gets banned, but do the numbers yourself. First of all, 7.8 billion people are live on planet earth, total COVID cases, 182 million total Corona deaths, 3.9 million. The chances that if you do the math on that, and I'm not great at math. So I had someone better do it.
That gives you a 0.04% chance of contracting and dying from Corona vaccinated, fully vaccinated. People can carry and catch Corona. Now, when you think about that NFL, think about that. People in the NFL, you don't know who got Corona, who is carrying Corona and who is spreading Corona because people who are fully vaccinated can carry and catch it have even said that the Delta variant can be more devastating amongst those who have been vaccinated, but get this.
According to Britain's chief scientific advisor, Patrick valance, he said 60%, six, zero of people being admitted to hospitals are fully vaccinated. He said having had two doses of the vaccine. Now, interestingly enough, Adam, he walked that back today or Friday rather, but I'm going to play you the sound bite, but here's some things I want you to think about as you're listening or watching today. Even if 60% were weren't true, let's say he said, oh yeah, no, no, no, no. I meant 60% are, are unvaccinated unvaccinated.
Even if that's true, that would leave 40%, a huge percentage of people who are vaccinated in hospitals as high as 9,000 people. But conservatively 5,000 people died from COVID vaccines. And over 400,000 people have been hospitalized that's numbers, including numbers from the FDA and CDC. There's more, but let me just play since we're talking about, he walked that back. Oh, that was a mistake. I didn't mean to say that. Listen to what he said. Yeah. We
Know that fascinated with fully vaccinated, people are much more likely to get and also carry the Corona virus. And that's, that's where we've got to. Based on the advice of chief medical officer and others, in terms of the number of people in hospital, who've been double vaccinated. We know it's around 60% of the people being admitted to hospital with COVID have been double vaccinated. And that's not surprising because the vaccines are not a hundred percent effective. They're very, very effective, but not a hundred percent.
So it wasn't as though it was a little, oops, I meant unvaccinated. He was specifically saying that 60% of the people in hospitals have been double vaccinated. We know that it's not completely effective. This is something else I want to get to. As we, as I get your thoughts on this flu symptoms will happen from the vaccine diarrhea, Bell's palsy, heart inflammation, death, blood clots, miscarriages. In fact, 14% of women who get the vaccine and are pregnant, have miscarriages soon thereafter using theirs, which is a government platform that collects and shares adverse side effects.
They are seeing an uptick and hospitalizations and there's, and they're seeing an uptick in deaths. There have been, this is, this is a final thing I'm going to give you. There have been more deaths from the COVID vaccine, then all of the other vaccines combined. Now this being said, now we're telling NFL players that if you're not vaccinated and there's an outbreak, your team's not only going to forfeit, but you're going to forfeit the check as well. Wow.
That is so crazy. Michelle, you were such a great target for gen Saki because you're speaking the truth. You know, it's, it's crazy to think about the fact that they, that they can mandate this. Right? I can't imagine saying to one of my, one of the people on my, so you're at the flu. Well, I'm going to take all of your accounts. I'm going to give them to this other person. And therefore you're not going to get any more commission for those sales. Sorry, but that's just the way it is. Because maybe if you're at the, if you had to run a vaccine and you still got the Rona, I mean, Michelle, it's just ridiculousness. It's totally ridiculous. The, the, the NFL, I think it's got an 85% vaccination rate. So 15% unvaccinated approaches the national average for those who are like the never have actors.
Like I don't care how approved this thing is. I don't care how tested it is. I don't care at all. I am not doing it. 12% of the people in our country are never vaccinators. And it's brilliant for religious reasons. And you have to respect that. So to say
Thoughtful reasons, reasons concerning we're still in a trial period. I'd like to see what the results are. Some of these 5,000 deaths. I mean, that's huge. Think about this when there were other vaccines that were put on the market and there were less than 20 deaths, they pulled it. They said, you know, okay, this is dangerous. For some reason, those deaths don't matter. They just don't care. This is a problem. And now that we're not allowed to talk about,
Yeah, that's ridiculous. It's like masking three-year-olds. I remember when Zeke Elliot had the Rona before the vaccine was out. I mean, I think he's, he, I think he got like a few extra hours of sleep. One of the days that he was, he was contagious and had symptoms and then he was fine the next day. I mean, your average professional athlete is nowhere near the at-risk person for any kind of bad thing happening from really most contagious sicknesses. Right? I mean, these are people who have bodies that operate like, like Ferrari's, you know, they are highly tuned machines that when they get a little bit of a bug or something, I mean, th their body quickly processes it and beats it and onto the next, right. You're not talking about a bunch of people with diabetes and overweight issues and things like that.
You're talking about
That. Having Corona is not fun for most people, for some people you don't even realize it for, but for, for most people, when you get it, just like getting the flu, you don't want to get it. It is not fun. It is misery. You'll hate it for the most part. But 0.04% is actually your chance of contracting and dying from COVID. So what are we turning the world ups? Why are we being manipulated? Why are you being told that you're hateful and, and you don't love. Oh, and, and you're, oh, did you love this?
Our, our vice president, you know, that's the essence of what loved my neighbor was all about. I know Jesus. And so, so Jesus told him that's what he had in mind. When he said love thy neighbor. He was thinking of the Corona virus and the vaccine. That's what Jesus was thinking about. Hallelujah. Amen. It's
It's like, you're talking about celebrating Kwanzaa before quantile started, you know, it's just like, come on. Just don't just say something truthful, please. Just anything truthful English, how you said it a bit ago too though. It's like, why should we mandate everybody and, and take away the, just our own personal power of choice, right? For a vaccine that is only approved on an emergency basis. It's not actually FDA approved for, for masters tuition. It's it's, it's got an emergency approval for distribution and that's it. So I
People are getting and spreading COVID. So it's the level of protection while they can say, and that's fine. If they say, look, you have a better protection and I am not dissing anyone who says, I think I want to get this. I think that I have a better chance of survival. If I have the, the vaccine, I am not, I'm not dissing you. That's your personal choice, but to treat people who hold back on that choice as if there some kind of evil monsters who don't love Jesus and don't love their neighbor, that's weird. And the Biden administration, it's now clamping down even more on freedom of information and free speech for people to make those free decisions.
Well, isn't it crazy to think that they're shutting down questions from like the actual, like inventor of MRN vaccines, Dr. Robert Malone, like to think that, okay. So if we're going to take away the ability to ask academic, honest questions from actual subject matter experts, you know, it's one thing for us to sit here and speculate just as, as individuals that are concerned about our own personal health, you know, do I get it, or do I not? I mean, we should be able to just ask those very basic questions, first of all, but then to stop an expert, a doctor, a researcher, someone who really knows what the heck they're talking about to stop them from asking incredibly important questions that that should be asked to maybe get us past the emergency state of approval and get us to full FDA approval, whether it requires a little bit of tweaks or if the vaccines are okay as is for certain groups of people.
I mean, let us figure that kind of stuff out to think that a bunch of AR limbs can go in here and say, well, we don't think that what this user is saying is anything other than misinformation. Let's just, let's just block this account. Let's just shut this one down because we think it's dangerous. Misinformation. That's exactly what's happening right now with the white house, you had Jen Sakhi admit that the white house is actively involved in censorship dishes, decisions that are taking place at Facebook. And we've already seen different things from like judicial watch, where you had the state of California, secretary of state, basically identifying problematic accounts on Twitter.
We know there's a trend here where the government is getting involved in our social platforms to shut down. Really just anything they don't like and specific to COVID. You know, again, this isn't an emergency approved vaccine. It's not fully FDA approved. This is like, when we should be asking a lot of questions, we should be throwing everything on the table and validating or invalidating, whatever, whatever concerns we have. And so among those,
The faxing will not get any better. I want you to think about this for a moment. If we do not have a thoughtful conversation, if voices are not allowed at the table, and specifically, as you mentioned the M there himself being saying, Hey, there's some issues here. We should talk about, oh, Nope, canceled, done. You're out. If we're not have these conversations, the vaccine cannot and will not get better, healthier, more effective, more powerful. I'm not, anti-vax, I'm pro doing the best thing and getting the best vaccine that can be made out there.
Without question, without question, Michelle argue that exactly. You know, so the internet used to be this place where, you know, if you had a question about a basic thing, you could go and ask that question to the actual expert. Like, oh my gosh, there is, I, I have water leaking from a pipe in, you know, in my, in my wall, how do I find a plumber? Let me go find a plumber who was an expert on that sort of problem and get out, get a solution to my issue in respect of, of the COVID vaccines. Oh my gosh. I have a question about this. These are my, my existing health conditions. My personal family doctor doesn't know because the thing is so freaking new. Let me go ask the guy who actually invented MRN vaccines. Let me just see what he has to say about that. Oh, wait, I can't because he got, he got banned.
He got kicked off. Well, LinkedIn, for sure. Shut down on Twitter. And Facebook was right there. Also, I can't ask the expert on this, a question that I would really like to know the answer to the thing
About them, because what he says, not because what he says is untrue. Not because what he says is not backed up with his years of exp expertise, not because what he says, he doesn't have data and facts backing it up, but because we don't like it, that should scare the hell out of absolutely every American listening to this right now, to the point. Now, as long as we're talking about the vaccine, this is another big, huge news story that parents are having to intervene in Washington, DC, the place where you reported from last week, DC, as allowing minors to get vaccinated without parental permission.
And now DC parents are filing a lawsuit that allows children 11 and older to get vaccines. Even if they parents have already filed a religious exemption. For example, the DC council voted 10 to three in November to allow these minors to give their own consent for vaccines. Think of the ridiculousness of that. Your kid gets a vaccine. You don't know about it. Kids at that age, that can be manipulated. Oh, you are not a good citizen. You're not that you don't love your parents. You don't love your grandparents. If you don't get the vaccine, the kids don't always know their own medical issues or history or the problems that could arise.
Parents have to take them to the hospital. And the hospital says, well, what's going on? Well, I don't know. You know, what, if they get a double vaccine, there's just so many things about this that are wrong. We do special bed. And then to file a lawsuit to say, can you just have some common sense?
I went to public school when I was a kid, like for, I was in public school for elementary school and middle school. And I had to, I had to like get a physical and assigned waiver for my parents to participate in things like, like physical education to play sports, you know, to go on, on class trips or
They did have vaccines. They did have vaccines at school when I was growing up. And you had to have your parents, right? Yes. My child will get faxed. I mean, there has to be that good communication,
But DC is a little different. Isn't it? I mean, when you have, when you have local governments like DC and like other parts of our country, you know, we're, we're finding now that that parents are actually getting a lot more, I guess, aware of what takes place in the classroom. Parents are now more actively attending. Oh, you know, it's, I'm sure they're learning great things at school until you see
Critical race theory. And some of the other wokeness parents are suddenly going, okay, no more easy ride here. This isn't about sending the kids off and getting a couple hours break. There's some serious stuff going on. That's right.
That's right. People are becoming more. I don't want to say the word woke more aware, more awake of what's actually taking place here. Right. Like, okay. So this is, what's actually being basically taught to my kids. Now, the thing is, is, you know, when you think about kind of what was just shared by the white house, you're, you're realizing that the, the, the things that are being, I guess, kind of shared with teachers as inspiration for curriculum, the white house had the abolitionist teaching network on the white house.gov website since April. And we just, basically, people does not realize that this website, that, that really teaches things like white supremacy is an everything we do education. They say things like education cannot save us, but we must save education, man.
Like that sounds a little weird. Doesn't it? We should probably ask some questions about how am I influenced curriculum, because the thing is, is when parents are aware of the fact that their kids are being taught critical race theory, man, that's got to stop. Thank goodness for people like governor DeSantis in Florida and, and other, other, I would say politicians and really, I think big, thanks to the parents that are being more aware of what's being taught to their kids and going to those school board meetings to ask questions and to stand up for what's right? Because this is garbage Michelle.
Yes. It is a lot of garbage that's going on out there. There's a lot of weird things being taught to children that caused a vision and hate of kids that have been, this was part of curriculum teaching children, how to use sex apps in third grade. Right. I mean,
Oh my gosh, you're so right. Actually. So I don't know if you use the next door app. So the next door app is kind of cool, but I was on the next door app and there was this person in my neighborhood who she was sharing a screenshot of one page of a book that was at the library that obviously kids are exposed to. Right? So it was a library that all middle school and high school kids can access. And inside this particular book, it was basically like this story about all these different, like sexual acts of the sexual experience between young kids in school and graphic words being used in this, in this literature stuff that, you know, I think really no parent would agree with.
And to think that a school allow that to be, you know, disseminated that's one example of many that kind of speaks to, I would say sort of like this, this conditioning that is taking place in our society, this conditioning that tries to tell our kids that certain things are permissible and certain things are not. And the things that are not permissible or the things that I think are societal norms that most of us grew up with. And that taught things like meritocracy taught things like the value of hard work and the, the, the truth of our, of our history for what that is not, not teaching things like, you know, gosh, critical race theory. And this is all indoctrination that's designed to sort of condition us for the socialist takeover.
Right. And that's exactly where we're going.
And in just a moment, I want to talk about how that's playing in with some of the news that's coming out of Cuba, but there were a couple of things that I wanted to make our listeners or viewers aware of another story that was kind of interesting. As we were talking about vaccines, you may have heard of this and it's easy. Actually. One of those is still easy to find on the internet that six fully vaccinated, Texas Democrat lawmakers tested positive for COVID-19. So just another, another bit of information that says your vaccines don't mean squat. And I wanted to let you know that there is a site that you can go to if you're feeling like you're one of those people that says I'm not ready for the vaccine yet too many deaths, too many unknowns, not enough open conversation.
There is a website that you can go to. America's frontline doctors.org, Americans, America's frontline doctors.org, and the AAF L D S the American frontline doctors filed a lawsuit this week, seeking immediate injunction relieving for and revoking the emergency use of COVID-19 vaccines based on all of the disturbing mortality data, much of which I gave you today. So that that lawsuit was filed 2, 3, 3 days ago. I w we'll keep you informed as to what's going on, but there's a lot of information on that site so that you can be more informed.
Don't be a mindless drone, not in the know informed, be informed, know what's going on. This is where we're at today, Adam, where we're in a place where information is being shut down. As you had mentioned by the Biden administration, not only in here's something kind of interesting that you may not have heard about, they're not just talking about on social media. They're also talking about monitoring your texts messages as well. I'm sorry. My private texts between you and I, our conversation no longer private anymore, Joe Biden and his band of people want to know what you're talking about.
It's very reminiscent of governments like China and Venezuela and those, those totalitarian regimes, especially Cuba. Absolutely well, and you know, Michelle part of the pushback to the Olympics in China coming up after here in Tokyo is specific to the fact that the Chinese government will be using basically this, this digital currency app to monitor things like your text messages, your location, data, who your, who congregating with what you guys are doing. It's all stuff that you can track pretty easily with your, with your mobile device and your tech. So to now think about, you know, just what that's, what to think about the possibility of that actually happening here in America is, is really frightening.
Even that URL that Michelle legislation has been proposed by Senator Klobuchar that would actually expose the internet host of this website, including the website itself to legal liability for hosting what the department of health and human services would deem as quote misinformation. So man, like they're, they're coming after all sorts of diverse information sources and, and things that really do matter. And of course, in Cuba, right? I mean, man, there are some people in Cuba right now, Michelle, that are, they're so brave. They're marching in the streets with American flags.
And you're talking about a place right now that the government is, it feels the, it feels power sort of slipping away. And so when it feels that this totalitarian regime does nothing, but try to grip tighter. And so when it does that, it starts to attack people in the streets. It literally is shooting students. It's shooting kids, it's shooting people that show any sort of political dissent. And they're, they're listening to things that are being said, and there is no freedom over there. You know, it's just, there, there, there is no freedom. They
Are looking for freedom, Adam, when they are looking for freedom, what flag are they waving? What flag are they standing under? The same flag that the us women's national team isn't strong enough or brave enough to stand up and say, thank God I'm an American where there may not be the freedoms that I want, but boy, by God, I have the right to search for them to speak for them to speak out and to demand them, to ask for them to protest for them. We have that right. There is a reason why people in Cuba in China are willing to lay down their lives and protest in the street underneath that very flag that you're waving right now.
And that's why that's why culture and sports are so important because it is an outlet for, for that sort of hope. And I think back to actually a conversation I had with my wife on my way back from DC to Texas, and she noticed this, this sort of strange and frankly scary intersection between the content that you see through our entertainment channels, the stuff that comes out of Hollywood and how that sort of fuels and kind of is inspired by the news. But then you look at a higher level and you realize that the news organizations and the production studios are the same companies and the content that's coming out is not good content. You know, I, I think back to fall of Romania, when the dictatorship of touch sq, that country attributes the, the TV show Dallas for the fall of that totalitarian regime, because the citizens of Romania, that was the only show that they were allowed access to because the dictator happened to like it, which was kind of funny.
But the citizens of Romania saw that there was another way of living. There was another way of life, one that involves, you know, lavish things and big Cadillacs and big hair and fun and all this wealth that didn't exist in Romania. So, you know, culture is really important and to see how our culture has been so strongly and negatively influenced by critical race theory and the black lives matter organization itself, a very self-proclaimed Marxist organization. We have to push back on that. We have to do so by choosing what we look to for entertainment, it's hard for me to walk pro basketball right now, of course.
So in Marxist regimes, do black people, they must obviously fare so much for black lives matter to take
You think about Marxist. Well, yeah, I mean, the interesting thing about those, right, is everyone is equally terrible except for the ruling elite. You know, the, the misery of all is shared by, by the 95% of people, right? And then you have that 5% who, how
Much of that percent, by the way, in any of those regimes are people of color are, are black
In terms of the elites, right? So
We'll just, we'll just leave it there for that to live in our heads because we have a problem. It doesn't matter to me where you stand politically Marxist, socialist, liberal Democrat, or Republican conservative, wherever you are. We have a problem. Any time free information is shut down. Freedom of press is suppressed. Anytime that we have a censorship happeni
My Michelle live podcasts. There you go. Right?
Just never, it never is. That's okay. Today I'm Michelle Mendoza and so happy to be hanging out with you today on this is what we're going to be calling our state of the union address. Really a lot more entertaining and coherent. I'm going to say then the last one, which may not be a nice thing to say, but, but you know, I would say it about there. There are things that I said about Trump as well, talked in a way that no one else talks no one,
But we'll do our best to slur our words. Way less than our current president.
We're going to do it today and get a little look at what's going on kind of across the nation as our one and only Adam residuary has gone from Texas to DC by way of the baby
Man. I'm getting
A little view through out much of that side of the country, as well as some big things happening in Washington, DC. So you won't want to miss out on this. This is what we call the reserve report, and this is where I press the button. And then the report happens. I know, right? I'm starting the air dancing report with Adam brews a year. Oh, you, my Italian, I'm going to share with you a picture of our friend, Adam, this is well, you, you won't be able to see it cause I, I won't be able to share it with you, but you're standing in front of this big white building.
It looks like a capital building there in our nation's Capitol. There
You are crazy. It's crazy how still a lot of these things, so inaccessible to the public just recently, they opened up the Capitol grounds since the January 6th event. And it's been really kind of crazy to see this disparity between people in DC that are demanding that public property be open to the American public because it is ours, right? It is that the capital is ours. This country is ours. And so it should be accessible to us. But then also this other side of people who are like statehood for DC, just it's like the weirdest thing. And yeah, it's been quite a journey to come up to, to our nation's Capitol.
I was sharing with Michelle just a bit ago that my wife and I hauled our dogs from Texas to upstate New York for my grandparent's 70th wedding anniversary. And so if you can imagine a party with a bunch of people in their nineties, you know, the dance moves are there, but there's a lot more wisdom than there are dance skills. So it was really cool just to speak to some of the people in my family who have seen so much change in our country. You know, people that have lived through some of our country's most pivotal, pivotal moments and driving from Texas through Arkansas, through Tennessee and jumping into Kentucky and then dropping into Ohio, which by the way that, that connection between Kentucky and Ohio, as you enter Cincinnati, absolutely gorgeous.
It's probably one of the most beautiful. Yeah, it's probably one of the most beautiful views that I've seen. It was just really cool. This, this, this kind of like Hilltop view of Cincinnati and I'm friends with Cincinnati, his former quarterback, his, his father-in-law. So it was cool to kind of see just a different perspective of, of the stadium and everything like that. Now, moving from Ohio, then jumping into Pennsylvania, driving through upstate New York. You know, guys, I saw nothing specific to Biden. There were, there were no campaign signs. There was no, I saw there were no stickers on cars.
I didn't see any energy or enthusiasm for the current president, despite going through states that reported pretty high voter turnout for him. And, and I'm talking Pennsylvania, I'm talking New York, right? I saw a lot of things in New York that were very critical of Cuomo, rightfully so other things, very critical of Biden, but I saw nothing positive until I got to DC. And, and by the way, I drove through Maryland in Virginia to nothing there, it, it just kind of like it's real. It was really quite shocking. You know, you would typically see after a big election, certainly one is polarized as the one that we just experienced. You would see the aftermath of that through stickers on cars and signs in front yards.
But I saw, I saw a Trump 20, 24 poster in Pennsylvania. I don't even think the guy was running in 2024, but there was, there was a poster there. So, you know, kind of experiencing some of that, I think it really yields some credibility to the country's appetite to make sure that our elections are accessible, they're free and fair. And they have a high amount of integrity because that is the American way being here in DC. Michelle, it's been really interesting, not only meeting with my Congressman and staffers his office, but you know, kind of exploring the grounds of the white house in Lafayette square and walking by a black lives matter Plaza yesterday. I had the privilege of, with my wife and I, we joined some of the SOS Cuba protestors in front of the white house.
And you know, when you talk to these people, some of them are first-generation Americans. These are people that one guy was talking to after he served in the Marine Corps, he served the United States as, as an immigrant that came to this country. He joined the service and, and excuse me, fought to protect our liberties. And now here he is working to try and ensure that the same amount of freedom was given to his relatives back in Cuba. And the things that are happening there are just terrible. And no, there's a lot
That we don't know because a lot of our conversation is not only back in the day. It used to be well, politically incorrect. Now it's just blocked. Are we are victims of algorithms on social media. That feeds us what we, what we want to hear. And not only do we not hear alternative voices, but if there is a voice that goes against what we say is the norm, then it shut down in a clear violation of free speech. You know, we can, and we'll talk more about that, but yet what I'm hearing you say, Adam, what's interesting as you're watching or listening right now, there is a voice of the nation that people are expressing.
And I don't care who you voted for. You kind of have to know this is going on out there. Now I didn't get down to Florida, but that's where I've been for the last month, the Southern Eastern, most of the Southern part of the state from Orlando down to Miami. And I have, I saw a lot of Trump's support and Trump flags and Trump bumper stickers. I'm wondering if what you saw in the lack of enthusiasm for Biden is that people didn't necessarily vote for Biden. They may be those who did vote for Biden voted against Trump.
I definitely think that's a characteristic of the first election against Hillary. It was people voting for Hillary against Trump. She was a very unliked candidate and really just a bad, really bad joys, you know, had they put somebody else against Trump that might've been a different result, just, you know, back in 16 specific to the Biden election, of course there were other choices, right? There were, there were Tulsi Gabbard, Tulsi Gabbard is a really, really strong choice that the Democrat party decided, you know what we think Tulsi is. She's a little too centrist. She's a little too reasonable. She's not quiet enough to the left. She's not a Marxist or a socialist. She's actually an American Patriot and a libertarian. And we don't like that. So I think the democratic party had a real chance to put somebody in the running that would have been much more acceptable to the mainstream of, of the American public.
But they chose to go with an establishment. I would say political puppet, who has been in power for almost half a century
Look like there's a lot of things that, that we overlooked. Oh, go ahead, go ahead.
Oh, I'm going to say just someone who literally was buddy, buddy and eulogized, a former KKK leader, Senator Byrd, you know, ignoring, ignoring so much.
This is something I want to play for you. All that I played before. And this isn't because I want to divide the nation anymore, or because I'm in the place where I want to just bash Biden, but I want to have some balance here of what you are not hearing in the news in. I mean, Trump blew his nose and they called it racist, but I've not heard him say things like this. And these, these things that you're going to hear are over Biden's career. They are shocking. And, and in some ways, inappropriate take a listen.
<inaudible> the black in the south and <inaudible>, it wouldn't matter.
All right, that's enough. That's just enough crazy.
And that crazy, like that is just such garbage. You know, that this guy could say this stuff and just, and to your point, Michelle, the media totally ignores it. You don't hear any of that on MSNBC or CNN, MSNBC and CNN are still suffering from orange man bad syndrome. And they're still talking about the things about Trump that made them uncomfortable. Instead of talking about what's actually taking place in the white house today. It's
Unreal. I can't believe it, but this is where we're at today. So there is this sense of maybe ignoring what's going on in DC and why we're really glad that you're there. You've spent a week in DC. What are some more of your observations?
Yeah. Yeah. So I'll, you know, kind of going into the conversation of the media, being a political propaganda machine and not a free and fair source of journal of actual journalism and fact checking and being the checks on power that I supposed to be as an institution, but going to Congress and talking to people that are over there on the hill, who are here every day and realizing that, you know, there is a true, I think, fear amongst a lot of both the left and the, I don't want to say it when I say the left. I mean like the center left, you know, like more of our closer to our libertarian side, not the, not the people who are drinking the Kool-Aid, but there's a fear to ask questions.
Nobody is talking about Ashley rabbit. Ashley Babbitt was the person who was, who was shot. The only person who died on the January 6th insurrection or insurrection quote, air quotes, right. She was shot by Capitol police. And, you know, the video I saw of that particular incident was, was terrible. She was definitely doing something that was inappropriate and breaking the rules. Like you don't break into Congress, but she was not, you know, she wasn't threatening anybody's life. Put it that way. From the video that I saw, she was wearing a, an American flag made into a Cape. She had a backpack on and she was also a veteran.
And, you know, she was really, I think, kind of given us the short end of the stick here, nobody's talking about her death. I, I feel for her husband and for her family and for people that are asking questions about her and getting no interest from, from journalists and no action from our lawmakers between questions about,
Wait a minute, this isn't the first time people have broken into that building, you know, black lives matter. That's okay. When there's been disruptions from, you know, if, if you're gonna say nobody breaks him, we're not going to have rioting or, or protests in this manner, you set that standard and it needs to be across the board. It really does. And you can call it. I don't know if you call it an insurrection, call it an insurrection, but it's just as much an insurrection. When someone from another political point of view or political little group does it as it is when a Patriots or someone wearing an American
Flag. Does it, the interesting thing though, about that day has that you had this huge group of people that is being identified as one group of people. When in fact you had a big group of Trump supporters that were largely, I would say protesting peacefully thousands.
I have two friends who were there on the ground, didn't even know that there was something going on at the Capitol building. And it was just a peaceful protest,
Right? And congressional staffers will tell you that there were large amounts of, of Antifa basically embedded in this group of protestors. The Antifa people were the ones that were violent. They were the ones that were breaking glass and trying to cause harm. But in fact, when you look at, oh, by the way, also there was, there was a CNN news crew as alongside those NTP group groups. And then I believe one of their journalists was actually arrested by the FBI for their actions related to the violence around January 6th. But, you know, MSNBC and CNN are going to tell you about that. They're going to say, oh my gosh, did you see what those Trump supporters did at the Capitol?
You know, part of this, th th th the importance of this Adam to me, and as you're listening is that it's, it's not about justifying actions of right-wingers. It's about having balance and truth, truth, and reporting. Some of this is because of a weird jihadist kind of ideology from extremists on the left, and you can have extremes on anything of course, but some of it is just bad reporting. You know, what do they think is going to sell? What would be putting out information that they think is, is sexy and titillating rather than really getting to the truth.
And that's where it's unfortunate, but that's where people are tuning into what we do every week, Adam, because they, they want to get more to the story. They want to get more into the truth. And that's a lot of what we're doing so well. And Michelle,
You know, it's hard to get to the truth though, when you're not given access. And that's been a huge problem with our oh good access. And so the fact that I was able to be invited by, by my congressman's office to actually visit the congressional offices and go to the Capitol was a real privilege. But at the same time, you know, we do have an entitlement to access those, those properties, to ask questions, to have real conversations about what's going on in our country. So, you know, as an individual, I feel very grateful to Congressman Dan Taylor and his, and his team for allowing my wife and I, that opportunity. It came at a really interesting time to Michelle because, you know, inaccessibility gives you a really difficult way when it comes to trying to find out what the truth is, right?
And that's part of what the existing administration and the extreme left has tried to perpetuate to stop us from getting to the truth. That's why the, these, these facilities have been shut down for so long. Nobody wants us to get in there and ask questions. It's a power grab. And so on previous episodes,
Think about what that means for just a moment. And we'll get back to that. That means that our government is inaccessible. It means they have no accountability. If we don't have the press reporting and getting the information out and holding them accountable, then you have no accountability. So I don't care what side of the political aisle you're on. Again, I tried to bring it back to balance. If your allowing your people to not be accountable, Lord knows what they can do. Craziness.
Well, it's the Gavin Newsome thing. Good for the, but not for me, right? Like it's making rules for you guys, but I'm not going to follow them. It's the front, that fringe restaurant thing is just an example. Pelosi at the salon, when, when San Francisco was shut down and small business owners were hurting, you know what like do, as I say, not as I do that, that's, that's not how our government is supposed to be. And
That's where it comes to a leadism, that's kind of where we're at. And as you met with Congressman Taylor and Libby, Albert, you, you said that these folks might, might be, we be able to see them on an upcoming edition of the reserve report here. My Michelle live, let's talk a bit about your meeting. What was said, what, what information you got spill the beans. Yeah, absolutely.
So it was a great meeting and, you know, the, the, the, the nature of the meeting was to discuss big tech censorship. And it was really interesting, you know, I've, I've shared with you that my, my agency partner interactive brand account on YouTube was canceled for the same kind of content that you would find on any mainstream radio station, right? Discussions of big tech and section two 30 and talking about when the social networks banned Trump talking about other options for social media networks like parlor, but oh, eight probably got shut down by Amazon, Google and apple talking about this kind of stuff.
And this is real stuff. We're talking about a competitive market. We're talking about freedom of speech. We're talking about all this sort of stuff. And my conversations with Congressman Taylor's office. In part, we, we touched on the class action lawsuit that president Trump filed with the American first poly policy Institute and my customer, the walkaway campaign. Now my wa my customer, a walkaway campaign, Liberty Libby, Albert is a, is a fantastic person. She's one of the executive directors of this, of this pack. And she, her, her Facebook account was suspended for, with no reason rhyme or reason or explanation. Her Facebook account was just suspended.
Michelle. You've experienced something similar by singing Bible hymns on Facebook, which is just ridiculous. And of course, I've experienced that on YouTube, no rhyme or reason or explanation account gone. Sorry, we don't like your content by, and that's just not what these platforms are supposed to do. They should be a free space to have fair.
Think about this. You can go on YouTube and watch wop. I mean, come on, you can go on YouTube and watch the most inappropriate crap. And yet someone gives a documentable information, asks questions. My content on YouTube was removed because it goes against the norm of vaccines. And what I had was just doctors on, I asked them the hard questions, you know, in what the style that used to be real journalism. And that was like, oh, no, you're not even allowed to have someone like that on.
I mean, come on. Does that come on? I don't care who you are. Aren't you a little scared of that. I mean, there are some extremists out there and think about check your extremism. If this is you, where you say, well, that's good because you don't want people thinking this, or you don't want people thinking that no, what you're saying is you don't want people thinking and that scares people. It's scary. She
Don't, don't be a sheeple. There'll be a sheep shippers. It's really, it is scary stuff. And that's why I think anybody that listens to this program that has been deep platform or censored by big tech check out this URL. And this is the URL that will allow you to share your story with the class action suit that has been filed by president Trump and America first policy Institute, and the walkaway cam campaign go to take on big tech.com. Now take on big tech.com is kind of like the main website for this particular class class action suits for right now. And it allows you to share your story. And this is a really important thing for you to do, because for, for a case like this to succeed, you don't have to go anywhere at all.
It's going to need a lot of context and from the need, a lot of different examples of things that big tech has done to shut down free speech. The, the case that we're talking about here, this class action suit, the case rests on the claim that president Trump's free, speech rights are being denied by these companies. If you can get re get rid of the word Trump, and then insert your own name there, or your own company there, then you qualify to be a part of this suit. Here's where I think there's going to be some, some extreme difficulty when it comes to the courts, doing everything that the, that the plaintiffs want in the suit, the plaintiffs are asking for a declaration that section two 30 of the communications decency act.
This is that, that little clause that has a little clause. It's huge at shield social media companies from liability of user generated content. But the plaintiffs who are asking that section two 30, be ruled as unconstitutional. So I think that's going to be a real problem for the legal team here, because if we are to totally get rid of section two 30, we will expose all of our social media companies to rampant lawsuits from everybody. And they're going to experience such legal burden that they're going to really quickly be bankrupted, like almost overnight, just in legal fees alone. You know, so I think there's going to be some, some real challenge when it comes to that particular ask from, from the plaintiffs.
If we were to get rid of section two 30, and if we were to expose American technology companies to massive massive litigation exposure, then you're kind of exposing America country to the threat of foreign, big tech being China's companies, right? So at a high level, it's American big tech versus international being China, big tech in Russia, big tech. And we can all be honest here. I mean, most of Chinese company in terms of big tech, they stole a great idea from an American company anyway, but, but that being said, we don't want that knock off of Google and Facebook and Twitter and Amazon to, to be what rules the world moving forward.
So we have to approach this, this really, really delicately. And I think the way to do that is to look at the good Samaritan of section two 30. Cause I think that's what the real problem is. And it's what the big tech companies seem to explore exploit the most
Right? They do because basically what it does is this good Samaritan provision is a section of two 30 that says social media companies can act in good faith to basically get rid of content that they consider obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent harassing, or otherwise objectionable. So I guess if like, if Michelle singing on the guitar and me talking about big tech qualifies as obscene, lewd and lascivious, I mean, come on guys, like that is the good Samaritan act or the good Samaritan provision is being so abused by these companies, if they would just, if they would just make section 2 38, a lot more defined.
Okay. And, and that's where I'm saying is that, that there is definition with things that are illegal child pornography illegal, right? Public, public nudity, illegal, right. Making threats, physical threats against somebody else, illegal there's things that are already illegal. Those things shouldn't have a place. I mean, they, I, you know, I understand the, the, just put it all out there, idea that, you know, it's complete freedom of speech, but remember that old adage, you can't yell fire in a crowded theater.
Exactly. Right. Exactly.
Well, and Michelle Twitter has hid behind section two 30 to shield themselves from liabilities related to child pornography on their platform. There was a 13, right? There was a 13 year old that sued Twitter because there were nudies of him on Twitter. He didn't post them, but some, some other person did. And he requested that Twitter take those down. I have no idea why, but Twitter was like, man, we're going to leave them up. That makes no sense to me at all. But when they were sued, no, but Adam
Don't, you dare talk about Michelle don't you dare say little Jesus' song. Don't you sing little Jesus song. Cause that there there's little. No, no.
Who is that commercial? Is this, was it with Tombo? He's like, no, no, no, no, no, no. That's literally what's going on here. And so the fact that these companies can hide behind two 30, the way they have, it's just a total abuse and, and really it's, it's, it's, it's unfair and I have to stop. And I think that the real remedy here, you know, just like the, the emotional side of me does want to see this class action suit result in like big punitive damages. Just sort of as like a, ah, like, ah, but like the professional in me says the real remedy here is getting rid of well it's, it's truly defining and making more, a subjective objective, everything within section two 30 so that it's not abused, but that's the only way forward to make this really work.
It's going to be a legislative action.
Yup. Everyone's watching the no, no, no. Right now
It's and Michelle, you know, what's interesting by the way, here's, what's interesting. Right? So the day that I'm, so that the day that I had like a great 45 minute meeting with Congressman Taylor's office was also the day that I joined, excuse me, I joined the class action suit by sharing my story with, with take on big tech.com access point. I went to the, to that website. I, I shared my story there. I also shared it with Libby directly and you know, what's crazy Michelle, yesterday morning, I woke up to a message from my marketing manager in Dallas and she said, Hey, our YouTube channels back. Wow.
What Michelle? I, I, I had emails from YouTube saying your appeal has been denied. I appealed that thing. Well over 10 times. Right? And to, to go through all these, to jump through all these hoops, to make all this noise, most people are not going to do what I did to get a channel like this back or to get, figure out
How to do it. Let's just be really honest. You know, this may have happened to you as you're listening or watching it. They did not make it easy to do that appeal. Do you have any, do you have any advice on that or do the, is there anyone even there reading those? I mean, I know in some cases we have gotten responses, other cases that just seems to just disappear into the ether.
Yeah. I mean, squeaky wheel gets the grease now in America, you know, thank God we still do have a fair amount of liberties. Right. Like had I done, if I did what I did in another country, like in Cuba or in Venezuela, I just would have been shot. Right. I just would've been shot. Like they would have just said, you know what? This guy is a threat. He's saying stuff that we don't agree with.
No, no offense, my friend, but we, we thought maybe 10 years ago, we wouldn't be at a place where free speech would be absolutely cut down denied. So, you know, I don't want to use the slippery slope argument. That's an illogical argument. It's, it's just really not, you know, it's it's but in a way you do have to ask that question. If we don't take a stand now, are we going to look at, oh, I'm sorry. I can't believe you have that point of view. I mean, come on.
Well, you know, and that's, what's going on in Cuba right now. I mean, and th th the, the extreme of the loss of our liberties and the degradation of our freedoms, you know, just little by little that the Congress, the Congress, the congressional staffers on the hill sort of agreed with me in saying that the, the biggest threat to our country will come from within. And it's not just what they've identified, but it's also what Karl Marx identified when basically trying to figure out how socialism take over the world. And so the biggest threat to our freedom to our democracy will come from within it, won't be an outside force though. An outside force may have an influence. As we've seen, China's had a lot of influence in our country. Russia had a lot of influence as well.
And now we have groups like black lives matter as an organization, very, very dangerous, very clearly Marxist. And they're supporting Cuba's regime right now, as Cuba goes out and takes out people for doing what I do, Michelle, doing what you do as well.
And we do know that that's what we're hearing from the black lives matter movement now is that America is to blame for the ills and Cuba. How did that, and the how, how do you spin doctrine that,
Yeah, it's ridiculous. It's like saying, oh man, you know, had JFK or the Italian mafia had been successful in taking out Castro in the sixties. This wouldn't, I just, there's just no logic to it. It's just ridiculous. You know, it's, it's absolutely.
But you, but you were there among some of the protesters there at our nation's capital of, can you give us a little bit more thought or insight into what was going on or what they were thinking? What, what, what was the message you're trying to get out that is not picked up? Cause I didn't hear about it on the news, so let's record it here.
So, okay, great. So a lot of the protestors I was speaking with, they say, Hey guys, Florida, the United States, there are so many Cuban Americans here. There are so many Cubans first and second generation now Americans who have family in Cuba. And they, they feel that America should go into Cuba militarily and take things over, or they should allow Cubans to assemble and force and go back to Cuba and literally taken over from the existing regime, the existing dictator, the Cubans that I was the Cuban Americans. I should say that I was talking to one of them being a former Marine serving the United States.
He said, listen for us to go back to Cuba and to actually fight, we're not invading Cuba. He said, we're taking over a country. That's ours that was taken from us. And that made me think about some conversations I've had with some friends of mine who worked for some of the larger companies like Bacardi, for example, had a lot of it's company assets just totally basically absorbed by the, by the government. Other, other companies in the United States, all of their assets, their factories, their, their, their business operations were just kind of taken over by the government. They were basically turned into a public property. So, you know, from a business perspective, but then also from a living free and, and having, having
We'll give you a second here. I think we had a little bad connection. That's all right. I think we'll get you back here in the second. Just joining in. There you go. You're back. Oh, we lost you for just a second. Just a second. That's okay. Didn't we, we're not missing. Lot of what we are hearing is what's of real concern to people around the world. As we play this we're game in America, you know, we play loose with freedom of speech and we bind and ban things that we don't think fit into the narrative. And I'm going to tell you, I don't, again, don't care where you're out on your ideology.
Cause we can talk about it. I learned from people who are extreme right-wing and well, some of the extreme is just weird. I'm sorry. Right? And left.
I'm not going to lie. I'm
Sorry. Wherever you think you stay on. But you know, if you get too extreme on anything, you get weird, you just do. But I learned from that, I want to listen. I want to hear what you have to say. You know, that's where we had that diversity really helps us to grow it. The Bible says as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. And you think of what happens when you're sharpening iron or when you have in the classic Dubose, the swords of shiny swords they're meeting and sparks fly. But as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
Sometimes it sparks. Sometimes we don't like it. Sometimes it's uncomfortable, but we can learn and we can grow. But what we're seeing with the complete annihilation of, of speech, you are literally admitting that you're afraid of truth. You're afraid of your truth being challenged because maybe your truth isn't truth enough. But I'm going to tell you if your truth is truth enough. Even the Bible God says, come let us reason. God says, God says this, test me, try me, prove me what you know, God's not saying, oh, I'm sorry.
You don't agree with me canceled. He's like, bring it right. If God himself can say that, then black lives matter. Kamala Harris, all, all y'all who, you know, defund the police, big tech social media. What the heck are you afraid of? Just exactly. But the questions be answered and
Happen. That's my thoughts. Come on
Right on. If the truth is so scary. Well, let's talk about that, right? Why is the true, scary? Let's talk about the truth because the truth will expose something better and greater and productive. The people
You're going to be balanced and say what challenges to going ideas, you know, because you know, truth, what is truth, right? And I'm not to be Pontious pilot there, but what is true? Let's let it way out. When we look at science, science, ways out theories and ideas, and then some get more weight and others don't. So don't be afraid to ask those questions and have that conversation because really Adam, what we're looking at here as a free speech tends to go by the wayside is a, what you Cove called the ripple effect.
Right? Right. When, when you, when you see, when you see basically one thing fall, it's like a domino, right? And when you lose one Liberty, well, the grades, the strength of another, and the thing is, is everything that our constitution matters. All of our civil, civil liberties matter tremendously. And in our freedom of speech is definitely one of the, one of the pillars of our freedom. And so when you look at how big tech and big media, and now even the scientific community are being controlled by the government, they're not being allowed to share the truth. They're not allowed to ask questions. Can you imagine a scientific community? That exactly. Exactly right. Can you imagine a scientific community that doesn't work on truth?
I mean, man, if you're not looking at like what's real and what's like, what's reality, you know, how are you going to innovate and how are you going to evolve and create value?
We're seeing this kind of what we're saying. Well, we're not taking challenges to the very antiquated idea of Darwinian evolution and looking at what modern science and discoveries are showing us so that we can look deeper and say, what the heck is really going on. Where did we come from? What are we all about? Watch our shows on Tuesday, because that's what we talk about. That very kind of thing. Oh, we're in that, like you said, that's being shut down as well. No, no, no, no. We can't challenge that. We like it here. We like it
Do from the truth that comes from the scientist, you actually created MRN vaccines. You know, let's, let's shield you from questions that are actually being asked by the former CDC director back when science was a thing, you know, knowing, having a lot of doctors in my family, doctors who are in some cases, very respected. Some of them work to actively research cures for cancer to hear them say, I can't, I can't speak my mind in the work environment because I have to fear being fired or being alienated. That's crazy. A doctor, a scientist should be able to say the most extreme things out there, right? Because they're doing really extreme stuff. They're questioning truths. And then they're proving or disproving certain theories to create a much.
That's why everything cool from our country has been stolen by socialist governments, right? Like, because we have the truth and we iterate from it. And because we
Challenged things and in countries like those where you're not allowed to challenge going ideas, new ideas, aren't introduced that iron sharpening iron doesn't happen and you don't get very sharp. And you're not the sharpest tool in the shed just saying, you know what? It turned into Adam. We are those monkeys. See no evil, hear no evil speak, no evil monkeys and truth have no real truth. That's what we are. We're the monkeys.
Can you imagine, like, you know, like in North Korea they have like those professional criers and like their, like their job is to like cry, like whenever like the north Korean dictator. Oh, can you just imagine society where you have professional? Like just fake emotions. Like, oh my gosh, we have to mirror and represent every emotion of our Supreme leader. Time to cry today. Oh, it's time to clap profusely. What are we clapping that, I dunno
Really where we're at today and that's where, why we're doing this broadcast today. It's so important getting our kind of state of the union, some things that are going on that maybe you aren't hearing, which is what we do with the Riz report. Looking at some of the news of the week what's happening through the week and things that are not being widely reported. We're trying to report here with balance, with integrity, making sure that what we do talk about is not just hearsay. That's really important. That's how I, you, you, I get these messages from people at them like, oh, you're doing something so noble dude, I don't mean to diss your praise, but this isn't noble.
It's called journalism. It's called journalism. That's what we're supposed to do. You just re you report. You give, try to bring some balance. You aren't afraid to ask those questions. It's just journalism. Why is it that all of a sudden my Michelle live is like, oh wow, look at what it's not, this is not innovation. It's journalism. That's what we're supposed to do. And I wanted to show one more picture. There you are. As this, your congressman's office with your beautiful wife.
Yeah. They let me sit in his chair from when he was a state representative before going to the, to the U S Congress there. Well, we'll see. It was a great, great, great staff. Great team there. 20, 24.
Well, never say never.
Right? I would say is, you know, hopefully my, my examples specific to my company, YouTube channel being banned, hopefully, you know, I can kind of serve as a positive source of hope for a lot of you who have been silenced, be vocal. Talk about, talk about the injustices that are there. Don't self-censor never, never, never, never, never, never self that's. That's the worst thing. And that's exactly what organizations like BLM want you to do. They want you to shut up. Don't shut up. The first amendment is there to protect even speech that we disagree with. Right. So speak your mind even if, even if you disagree with me and with Michelle and I right. Let us know. We appreciate that.
It's fine. Absolutely. Bring it exactly. Bring it, baby. Thank you. And thank you for, for listening like this, share this because it's not just about, oh yeah. This was kind of a good program. It's about the perpetuation of freedom of speech. We have to like programs like this and you'll see others like them. Share them a comment. I don't care if it's just a smiley face in the box, you know, or just a hi every time you comment, it helps to propel this kind of thing. And it sends a message to all of the big tech companies and social media sites that this program, Arizona, all of the podcast venues, it should, it sends a message that people are interested in freedom of speech, this kind of programming.
If you want to save the kind of programming you love, then anytime someone speaking out against the norm and bringing this balance, you got to like it and share it. Go to my Michelle, live.com and Adam have a safe trip home. Thanks for sharing our beautiful nation's capital.
Always a pleasure, always a pleasure to, to do the report. I'm on Michelle live. Thank you all so much.
And we are calling that a wrap. Well, at least we were going to, and we were going to play music, but you know, for some reason now, actually guys, I've been on the road for a while and I'm finally home. But man, now getting home, I got to learn here's the button, go to my michelle.com. You can go to my Michelle.
I have my days, you gotta be a dessert tech, you know, like one Zurich take deep, but I can get like that. That's why Michelle alive.
0 (5s): Oh, weekend review. Welcome. I'm Michelle Mendoza. Get ready. It's time for that weekend review 1 (29s): My Michelle live podcast, Michelle, 0 (46s): We are getting into some of the big news stories of the week and oh, there's some crazy ones. This is why podcasting freedom of speech is so important because you, my friend are only hearing part of the story and it's getting weirder. It used to be kind of weird. We'd scratch our heads and go. Yeah, no. Now it's just getting even weirder. So we're going to hear some more of the story as we do go into a weekend review with the resume. 1 (1m 15s): Let's review the week, the reserve report with Adam bruise a year. 0 (1m 25s): Yeah, the Missouri. Hey, how you do it? Report on mama. I love it. Let's do it, man. There's been a lot. There's been a lot of news that affects all of us. Okay. We've all been affected by lockdown, shut downs, masks, all of this, right, financially, emotionally. And yet. Now here we are a year and a half later and there's two big news stories and a lot of press that has hit the news. W when the press has become the news, you know, there's a problem, but let's start with what we were talking about on Thursday's news and views podcast. 0 (2m 11s): If you've been listening, if not go to my Michelle live.com and check it out. Thousands of private emails from the U S infectious disease, chief Anthony Fowchee showed that there was more than concern and confusion at the start of the pandemic. You know, we all know that, but we saw in his emails, even though we're still wearing masks and many state, he said, you know, store bought masks are not really effective. And keeping out the virus, it's small enough to pass through the material. Well, we've known that, but we've shut that down. 0 (2m 51s): If you post that on Facebook, it'll be blocked out. If you post a meme, you won't be able to see it or access it. Anything of that nature absolutely canceled. Saw a loved one that was upset because her daughter came home with a mask that she found at school, and it's a no mass mass. And if you hold it up to the light, you can see through it. You can breathe who sends their kids to school like that. Well, what's the difference. According to Fowchee, Adam, 2 (3m 21s): What is the difference? I mean, it's kind of crazy. Like, according to his emails, these masks don't really do anything. Anyway, I know that during the five masks, which is the mask version that apparently can block viral material, the small little viruses that might be traveling in the air. I was walking around with just like the regular old mask that you might see at a dental at the dental at the dentist, right? The same thing a dental hygienist might be wearing. I did see people walking around in those masks that were like almost a crafted a craft project, you know, kind of homemade masks. Someone grabbed some fabric, 0 (4m 0s): It wasn't maybe Alyssa Milano or something that was, you know, shaming people for not wearing masks. And she made her own crocheted mask. Right. 2 (4m 12s): Right. And then there was the, there were like these different layers of fashion or different levels of fashion in the world of masking. You know, I think there was this one singer, well, what's her name? Pop star. Right. And she had a mask that was literally like, there were holes all through it. It was kind of the same idea as like, like mesh, right. It's kinda like this mesh mask. I've seen people with like glitter masks. I've seen masks with different like statements on them. Almost like a, like a t-shirt with a statement. I I've kind of like, I've really sort of been like the mess rebel, because I just, I hate the idea of a mask because I just don't like being made to do something that I know is actually not doing anything 0 (4m 51s): At all. Not only that, but I have a mass called my immune system. 2 (4m 58s): How about that? Michelle? Your immune system. Oh my gosh. You know, like as a kid it's like for parents, right? Like kids get outside, play in the dirt, you know, build up your immune system. I mean, that's what your bodies are for. That's what, that's what, that's what bodies do, you know, fight bacteria and diseases. 0 (5m 17s): Kids. The sickest kids are the most sterile kids. Do you have a kid who is there nine on his dad's shoe? Which, oh, I can't even imagine. Yeah, but I've seen it. Kids never sick. You know, it's called an immune system for some, for a special reason, you know? And, and masts can have their place, man. I'm, I'm going to tell you, this is coming from a germaphobe, Adam. I was the, the person who will use a scarf or my coat, or put my, my head to open public doors. You know, I, I don't mind, I don't want to catch your, your crap. But according this email from Fowchee store-bought masks are not really effective for keeping out the virus, which is small enough to pass through material. 0 (6m 7s): Quote unquote. Now you think about that for a little while. So why mass, just to give you something to feel better. That's a tactic often used by governments in the past to placate. The people makes you feel like you're doing something it's smoke and mirrors, and that's not the only email. There was an email. 2 (6m 28s): Well, isn't that email, Michelle, that you're talking about real fast before you move to the next one in the email that you're talking about. Also, he literally says verbatim quote, money as best been a medical countermeasures, such as diagnostics, vaccines, not maps. I mean, not maths, right? And yet, 0 (6m 44s): And yet now the email, the other email I wanted to refer to is from the director of the country's largest biomedical research facility. And in that email, he suggested the unusual features of the Corona virus and that these unusual features may indicate it's in Geneva. Okay. So that was something at the beginning. And now since then a year and a half later, we've had nothing, but oh, these conspiracy theorists of the Wu Han laboratory, that was the bunk. We'll talk about how the media played into that in just a moment. But now we're starting to hear about it again. 0 (7m 27s): Why is it this, this dead horse that was heavily guarded and refuse to be beaten is now running a muck like a wild stallion will a classified us intelligent report said three researchers at the Wu Han laboratory were treated in hospitals back in November of 2019 before the big outbreak, three of these researchers were treated for the Corona virus just before it started affecting humans in Wu Han. So how did these lab workers get it? 0 (8m 8s): And they say, oh yeah, I came from the market. They were all at the market that the same day, 3 (8m 13s): I don't know. Yeah. They were all 0 (8m 15s): Eating the same bat. You know, they were doing the Ozzy Osborne thing. I 2 (8m 20s): Should, I different bologna that day, wrong, wrong food. 0 (8m 24s): So now the U S U R U S president Joe Biden, as announced an urgent investigation, that's going to look into the theory as a possible origin of the disease. That's huge. Now, all of a sudden, it's posh to talk about it. Facebook has turned back the tide. Once they banned everything that talked about the Wu Han laboratory. Now they're saying, well, we're going to, we're going to change that. Now these arbitrators of ultimate truth who know all that true, you know, they're, they're up there talking to God or something that, you know, they have exclusive rights to truth. Now, all of a sudden, well, okay, well that may not have been as true as truth is. 0 (9m 7s): So we're going to talk about how that falls into the media category, but there's one more story, Adam and that's doctors, Dr. Fowchee revealed and defended in the testimony in front of, in front of our, our, our own politicians, that he, there was a modest and very respectful funding of this infamous Wu Han laboratory that he said that at least $600,000 was sent to the lab through a non-profit called eco health Alliance. 0 (9m 48s): So now suddenly, oh, sick 800,000 was allocated only 600,000 modest and, and very respectful. Yeah, this is crazy. So for several 2 (10m 8s): Small businesses that were forced to shut down, come on with a lot of money. It's a lot 0 (10m 13s): Of money. I mean, a little modest, $600,000. Thank you, Fowchee. But this was after he had already admitted that no, no, no funding, no funding. No, we're not involved there. And now there's an involvement. It was to study the Corona virus and its association with bats. We have these three workers. So now it's all of a sudden posh. And you pointed out to me earlier, I can't wait to share this as you're listening right now that the Washington post is now walking back and changing their past headlines. We can just edit history. Now 2 (10m 54s): The same Washington post that's owned by Jeff Bezos. So the Washington post edits a 15 month old headline that claimed that the COVID-19 lab theory was already debunked. Now this is kind of crazy to me because here they're sort of going back into history with the power of hindsight and revising their headlines. Now, these are headlines that they use to influence public opinion. These are headlines that they use to drive sentiment around certain issues and certain needs. And in respect of this particular headline, they were basically kind of pointing to Tom cotton. And who was basically, they say, repeating this, this coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked back in February of 2020. 2 (11m 38s): I look at some of these emails and the dates are about the same, which was kind of funny. They updated their headline to go from saying eight coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked to Tom cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed. So that's a big change from saying Tom cotton keeps repeating a Corona virus, conspiracy theory that was already debunked too, keeps repeating a conflict, a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed. So from already debunked to French theory, that has been disputed. I mean, that's a big difference, right? Yeah. 0 (12m 15s): That's and that's one going back and changing a headline instead of correcting it. Look, if you don't wrap your head around this for a little bit, it think of how the media has worked in the past and should work. You print something, it's a, Ronia you print what is called a correction, right? Adam, a correction. You go back and say, well, now that there's new evidence, this is, this is mostly debunked, or it's been disputed by scientists, but there are some new evidence which leads credence to a little more investigation. You print a correction, you print a new headline. 0 (12m 56s): You don't go back and edit. So you don't look like the fools that you are. 2 (13m 0s): Well, it's a real shame, you know, because the headline that that came out or not the headline, but the actual, the words that were being spoken by by Tom cotton were words that were in agreement with, with information coming from the world's most prominent biologists, there was a Rutgers university professor of chemical biology. Yeah. Number of in the school days, those kids that were in biochem became doctors and engineers, really smart people. This is a guy who literally pointed to the move-on lab theory and said that this is a hypothesis that cannot and should not be just easily dismissed based on the information at hand, this is a hypothesis that must be explored and go figure here we are today realizing that this type of virus could have only come from three laboratories in the world. 2 (13m 46s): One of them happens to be in Galveston, Texas, which is kind of scary. The other one right there. And Lou Hahn, maybe we should look at move-on already been debunked. Don't even look 0 (13m 57s): Nothing to see here right along people cancel, put it, take it off of Facebook. This is so par for the course. It is indeed. And this is not over the course. This is not something that is just small news. This affected the entire planet. There have been not only COVID deaths that maybe we could have known more about if we would have gotten to a little more of the truth or been willing to look into it, Adam, but there were deaths that were secondary related people who couldn't get into get the medical attention that they needed because of fear of COVID who died. 0 (14m 37s): There is death by suicide. In despair. There's been a loss of finances, businesses, you know, and many of us drive down the streets and see the casualties 2 (14m 52s): School districts around our country are reporting just double and triple suicide numbers this year versus years in the past, teenagers who already are, yeah, exactly. Kids who we already, we were talking about mental health of children with social media. And the fact that they're, that they're, they're re the way they perceive long-term repercussions and consequences, their prefrontal, the prefrontal cortex of their brain isn't fully developed until they're 25. They don't necessarily know what they're doing, but they know that they feel isolation. They know that they feel despair in some cases. And a lot of it is because of the messaging that's coming through the fear that they're being forced to live in the masks that they're being forced to wear, even though the masks don't do anything. 2 (15m 35s): And 3 (15m 35s): So he himself said that 0 (15m 39s): And, and forget about exactly. Let's forget about the big ticket items, the deaths and all of that. What about the loss of that? The division that's gone on amongst us, the people going into a store friend of mine, just going into a, up here in Seattle, admire shoes in the store, and a woman is angry. You don't have your mask on and, and in her face and you know what, we lost all civility. 2 (16m 11s): Oh yes. You're talking about the camera. Karen's right. Like the people that see someone without a mask, then they bust out their phone. They start recording that person on camera. Oh my gosh, where's your mask. I mean, those are the camera Karens and they will, they will chase me, but then they'll get you. And what I've seen is some of those people that are being chased by the camera, Karens, they do kind of the opposite of what they should do. They'll start to like fake cough on the person who's chasing them. I mean like wage, bio warfare on the camera, Karen, what, what are we, what is our society coming to your right? Yeah. 0 (16m 45s): And this is where we're at right now. So the important thing is that oftentimes we report news. Okay. But when the media, as I said before, Adam becomes the news. That's when you're going, what the heck? And the media has become the news because they play into this. They don't have a balanced approach. They don't like in that report, you were talking about changing the headlines instead of giving this and that and saying, well, this is what some people are saying. This is what some scientists are alluding to. This is the concern there. It's one sided. 0 (17m 25s): You are being brainwashed. We're all being brainwashed. Am I, am I saying this too strongly? Could I say it strongly enough? 2 (17m 34s): Unfortunately, we are living in a world where the true story is that the fake news is coming from the news, the media, when they are the news, is the problem looking at the, at the Washington post, for example, I mean, one thing that I look back on is how they reported the death of the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr. al-Baghdadi. I remember his obituary headline called the guy in austere scholar, or sorry, a stairway religious scholar at the hell or the, excuse me, I'm biting my words here. A stair religious scholar at the helm of the Islamic state. I looked into this guy a little bit at skull scholars, question mark. This guy graduated from Saddam university, which was basically a propaganda institution that radicalizes his lobbyist. 2 (18m 15s): So when I think about a scholar, right? I think of someone who pursues knowledge, who pursues exposure to various information sources, maybe somebody who didn't go to Saddam university as a thought. I mean, that's kind of what comes to mind when I think of scholar, you know, well maybe even a religious scholar, a steer, 0 (18m 35s): A steer, you know, what does that really say? Not 2 (18m 40s): Admire the guy. Yeah. Are you kidding me? This is the Washington post. I mean, but they're looking up, right? This is what, this is what <inaudible> paper is reporting. And this is how they're reporting these kinds of stories. It's not like guy guilty of the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people dies, right. Or, or terrorist leader dies. It wasn't like that. A steer religious scholar, are you kidding me? This is our media here. Reporting this kind of story of that way. How can we even trust them? 0 (19m 9s): So there is a continuation of this and there's no accountability. Although the, you do have places like a media research center, which we interviewed and talked about yesterday. There are places that are trying to say, wait a minute, there are news sources out there, but when you're fighting against social media, which is very powerful politics, which is powerful, the media, the mainstream media. So it's like the woke aren't really awakened. It's more like you're going to awake and they're just lying there in his stewing, in their own ignorance. 0 (19m 54s): I'm sorry if this offends you, but if you're not getting all of the story, you're, you're not really all that woke or informed. What are you afraid of? And what happens is that we go to the extreme and that's something that we're seeing people are so riled up that you were talking about, the camera Karen's getting in people's faces or taking it to the next level without right. Violence and hate against people groups. 2 (20m 23s): Right, right. And outright violence and hate, and oftentimes fueled by a misunderstanding of, of information or just flat out disinformation last week, Michelle, you and I were talking about the implied truth of fact and how people, when they don't see one of the Facebook fake book. Fact-checkers, if there's not a fact check on a certain comment or post, you just assume that it's real. And so if you see somebody calling Michelle a terrible person, and there's not a fact-check bias saying actually we've met her. She's really nice. You just assume that that random person's comment is real. And it's a fact. And so, you know, thinking about the implied truth of fact in this came from a study from MIT, hopefully the good academics that MIT, but when you read some of the things that are spewing through Twitter and skewing through Facebook, and you're realizing that there is no fact check on it, there is no, there is no, I guess, credibility or truth by on the actual post itself. 2 (21m 20s): What we're seeing now is actually a rise in violence towards, towards Jews. There's a wave of anti-Semitic violence right now, taking over our country in respects and following the Israel conflict in Gaza. So we're seeing waves of crime in LA, New York city, Miami. This anti-Israel Israelism like sentiment is really kind of becoming synonymous with anti-Semitism and violence is the, as the result a couple of weeks ago in Seattle's Westlake park, there were Jews that were attacked by Antifa. You literally had people being beaten by the Palestinian flag. These, the Israel flag was being burned. Literally pro Israel protestors were being labeled as white supremacists, which is just absurd. 2 (22m 3s): It's absolutely absurd. I was, I was kind of following the notes of this guy from, from Los Angeles, the Simon Wiesenthal center, rabbi Abraham Cooper. And he was arguing that the way social media is right now, social media is selectively censoring, certain types of messages. And it's selectively allowing other types of messages to flourish. It's not just allowing the truth to be what it is. So the implied truth effect, when you, when you see terrible things being posted, you just assume it's true. And so we're seeing really celebrities, actress, or actors, actors, actresses, business leaders, woke academics, posting things to social. There is no fact check on it. So the public sees it as true. And now the result we are seeing violence against Jews and pro Israel people. 2 (22m 48s): The, the rabbi Cooper was, was basically saying he was calling for the refunding of police because they need protection. Right now, we were talking about violence against targeted groups. There were, there was a wave of violence by a lot of the BLM supporters on, on Asian-Americans just months ago. Now we're looking at the same thing against those who are in support of Israel. It's absolutely shameful. I, I really have a lot of fear for, for kind of where we're going, Michelle, it's 0 (23m 17s): A heart wrenching to see that we not only have a short memory where history is concerned, the internment of thousands of people because of their Jewish heritage. I mean, gassed tortured, put to death, starved, worked to death. And now we're heading down that road again. And T4 who says they're anti Nazi are the biggest Nazis, but it's the mainstream aspect of it. 0 (23m 57s): That bothers me Antifa. I've talked about this many times, Adam, you know that I'm a sports nut. And I go to just about, I go to 3 (24m 7s): Everyday Sounders game. Yeah. 0 (24m 10s): Many of the way games, the supporter section is not just a supporter section. They are and <inaudible>, and you know, there I've sat in, in amongst them. I have friends that are, who are amongst them. And they w scowl at me as I sing the national Anthem, many times I've seen them turn their back on the national Anthem. They have Antifa flags and it's allowed it's c'mon it's soccer. Can you just cheer for your team? 2 (24m 43s): They should just like, it's like they live by the river. That game opposite day, Antifa. It's like, well, actually protein pro pro fascist. I mean, not anti it's. Like everything that they say they're against is actually what they live by or do. And so to see kind of just how they are using their words and their actions to try and in a very targeted way, and also an organized way. They have a website, they have a logo, they have leadership, they have factions. They are way more organized than what a lot of people in big, big tech and big media will tell you, oh, 0 (25m 14s): We should get into that today. Just how organized some of these darlings of the media grassroots movements are and how really they are hypocritical. You sent me a tweet concerning vena, my colleague, the actress. I mean talk about an example of being absolutely fascist, ridiculous ad Hitlerism, and yet pretending to be from the other camp 2 (25m 47s): That term at Hitlerism, it makes me laugh. And it makes me cry at the same time. Right? So, you know, talking about Antifa. So one of, one of the journalists who I, this guy is about as brave as it gets, Andy know, has been a target of Antifa. Now for quite some time, and TIVA has put him in the hospital. He almost died at one, in one situation, he was beaten to the point where his brain was swelling. Andy now has been forced to literally live and operate outside of the United States, because anytime he's at any sort of event, he is a target and his life is truly at risk. Andy, you know, posted this thing at Twitter. And it was basically him exposing another tweet from this actress named Vina Malique. And she was posting something to her 1.2 million followers, pretty good following there, right? 2 (26m 31s): 1.2 million, that's a little bit of influence. And she was quoting Hitler in response to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Well, the words cause there's no in it, but she said I would have killed all the Jews of the world, but I kept some to show the world why we killed them. Adolf Hitler. That is, that is an unbelievable, unbelievable thing to tweet and quote. And the fact that that was allowed to exist on social media, on what, or in what respect public flat public forum, free speech. You know, she is exposing herself as an anti-Semite, who was a terrible person for that reason. 2 (27m 17s): But if you were to go and try to say things that are pro Israel, you'll be censored. So she can say what she's going to say. And some might argue that that's okay. But for those to though, be able to also say, Hey, that's not right. That those kinds of, of, of counter messages have to be allowed to flourish on social media as is though we got woke, woke big tech is not allowing both sides of the conversation to really play out. The fact is, is that right now, you're seeing a lot of people and, and big tech, big media academic, the academic world, they are really trying to, and in a lot of ways, elevate Hamas, right? They're trying to say Hamas is actually a good organization. 2 (27m 60s): They're not, they're not getting into the <inaudible> 3 (28m 5s): National authority. 2 (28m 7s): You press buttons every now and then I'm on a show live. We have a good time. But the one thing that we can not forget though, is that our us state department has designated Hamas as a terrorist organization and for a reason because they are. So you have Hamas who literally subscribes to actual Nazi-ism a lot of Hamas. His early leadership literally came from the Nazi movement. Their charter reads just like Hitler's mind com. And then the fact is that Hamas will not allow the people of Palestine to actually survive and thrive in peace. They don't allow free and fair elections. They, they don't allow any sort of actual dialogue between the Palestinian authority and Israel's leadership. 2 (28m 48s): And so, as a result, you have these, these total totally different reality in the Gaza strip versus what most people enjoy. And Israel itself, there is no freedom in the Gaza strip. Civilians are used as, as bullet shields. And so that's just, that's just a tragedy. And so to see people like Vienna, Malique and people in, in our, in our public forum, the academics, the commentators as well to see them look at Hamas and, and actually feel for them is ridiculous. Because Hamas is Hamas is the, the, basically the finger that pulls the trigger for Iran, they're getting all their weaponry from Iran. And by the way, 30%, about 30% of the 3000 rockets they fired so far misfire. 2 (29m 30s): And when those rockets misfire, they impact civilians that are actually innocent in Palestine. So in the Gaza strip, you're having people die that are innocent because of the, the indiscriminate acts of violence that are being waged against people who are targets in Tel Aviv, people that are in schools and hospitals and temples and churches, grocery stores, markets. And it's just, it's absolutely ridiculous. And so to see how the big tech is continuing to allow the Ayatollah to spew hate and five languages and people are going to leak to post things like that. I mean, it's just, it's absolutely disgusting to see. 2 (30m 10s): Well, it is, I've kind of been trying to sort of dig into history a little bit, what I was going to say. You know, I've been trying to sort of dig into history a little bit. And what I've kind of sort of uncovered is that the far left, and I'm not talking about people who are Democrats, when, when bill Clinton was running for office, I'm talking about the far left people who are, are, are so far beyond our political left, our political spectrum, but they despise anybody who's or anything that's unapologetic, unapologetically successful based on the merit of their character, based on their hard work ethic. I believe that there was a time where today's left probably viewed Israel as a victim when they were more of a younger nation when they were weaker, poor, even more socialist in the, in the late forties to the mid to late sixties. 2 (30m 59s): But then Israel started to flex, right? They started to get stronger. Israel started to advance technologically. Their military got really, really strong Israel success. Today is such that they are a hub for entrepreneurship. Israel is a place where a lot of our coolest technology comes. I believe some of the, some of the image recognition, software and technology that powers the awesome Tesla came out of, out of Israeli based research. So because they're so successful today, they are not viewed by the far left as a victim. You know, it's the critical race theory, BS. You're, you're either an oppressor or you're the oppressed right now. 2 (31m 41s): And right now, because it's real strong, they are the victimizer, they are the oppressor, they have the iron dome missile defense system. They have the world's leading one of the world's leading air force. Rent-free, they've, they've grown so much. And so because of that, you can't really look at them as, as the victim anymore, right? So they are the only other thing that exists in CRT. And that's the oppressor, right? 0 (32m 6s): And yet here in America, we talk about the oppressed. We have black lives matter, which has become a big movement. Black lives matter. Black legal groups have come out against Israel in this conflict, this recent conflict with Hamas black lives matter much the same way while there we're supposed to be there to champion the oppressed. They seem to be becoming part of the, and becoming kind of a big business in the, in the mix of, of things. Follow the money people, oh, it's a huge 2 (32m 47s): Business. Follow that dollar, right? Follow that paper paper. I mean, that's, that's what it, that's where it's at. You know, I was digging into BLM T right? So BLM obviously has all sorts of problems with restaurant Western society. And they are supporting Hamas for a reason. And it's not because they truly hate is real. So to speak, like not necessarily ideologically or by values, they hate, they hate everything that Western culture stands for. And when you look at BLM, just kind of from a, from a global perspective, the fact is, is that BLM, I mean, they've, they've issued comments publicly on Twitter. They've, they've waived flags. 2 (33m 28s): They've beaten people that, that promote Israel's cause that promote freedom that promote Western values in general, Michelle was talking about singing the national Anthem, BLM Antifa kind of, kind of frown on that. When you look at Israel, you, you might say that really kind of looking back to religion, right? So Western culture, the heart of Western culture is Christianity. The heart of Christianity is Judaism. You know, Jesus Christ, a practicing Jew, Mary and Joseph Lee apostles worshiped in a Jewish temple along with Jesus. So to side with Tomas against Israel is to attack the heart of Western culture. And when the primary objective is Hamas of Hamas is the annihilation of the Jewish state. 2 (34m 9s): You could argue that the primary objective of Hamas is also the primary objective of BLM, which is the destruction and annihilation of Western culture. Wait, wait, 0 (34m 20s): What is it? Black lives matter just to tell people black lives matter. Don't forget about us. I mean, we don't want to be treated despairingly that it wasn't that the whole point 2 (34m 32s): Depends who you ask. Right? If you ask Patrice colors, it's a slush fund for really nice real estate around the world, you know, be able to raise $90 million after the George, the George Floyd death. That's a lot of cash, but we're going to get into this in just a little bit, but the LMS ugly truth is really being revealed. Not so much to us to have kind of always known it. But I think to those who, you know, just as a basic statement, can agree with the fact that black lives matter, white lives matter, Asian lives matter, Hispanic lives matter. People that can just agree with the basic statement of, yeah. I mean, those people are, are, are pretty good people. Like they, they do matter. Their life definitely matters. 2 (35m 12s): The, the all lives matter thing, right? I think the people that now kind of subscribe to the movement though, are realizing that it's not what it was pitched as in their original sales presentation. That's what happens 0 (35m 26s): Back to the point that the moral of the story today, that's what happens when you don't have accountability of power corrupts, ultimate power, ultimately corrupts. If, if we're not holding them accountable, Adam, if we're not able to challenge, if we're not able to say anything and you're, you're canceled, you're brought down, it's, you're taking off Facebook, your being taught how you may talk, how, what you may say. And if there is no challenge, if there's no counter, even as ridiculous as you may think it is, then you have ultimate power and it corrupts, boom 2 (36m 11s): Loves it, loves it, loves it. And this is like, this is like their tool. This is their tool to these stabilize, everything. That's great in our society. Everything that made the things that we enjoy. Levi jeans, the same Levi jeans that were, that were traffic into Soviet Russia, that the, that the Russians loved his contraband because he couldn't get that in Soviet Russia. But those came from America, all the great things that come out of Western culture, the technological innovations, the freedom, the diversity of thought the art, you know, there's, I mean, the list goes on, right? All those great things are what are under attack. And so to BLM, you know, if you, if you can sort of like generalize everything to get people to focus on this, these identity politics, well, then you might have something there. 2 (37m 1s): If people actually buy into it. The interesting thing that I read from Victor Davis Hanson just yesterday, I think it was earlier today and it was this, this idea of imperialism and colonialism and a lot of what I think BLM really tries to get people to look to is, is this concept of colonialism. You know, they're trying to say that basically basically the way that the world has evolved in the way that people have traveled over the world throughout centuries of time, that it's literally just been sort of this cadence of victim Saddler and sort of like colonialization that has sort of deprived indigenous peoples of their culture, of their, their land. 2 (37m 52s): In some cases, you know, I think about the fact that Jews have been in what is now Israel since the Dawn of time yet BLM and Hamas are trying to kind of say that, no, you know what? They just got there after world war II. They, they basically just came in and occupied this territory, which is just not the case. They, they, this, this particular region of the world has so much importance to the entire world for obviously a lot of religious reasons, but it's not like the Jews just came and took over Israel or Gaza for that matter. That's, that's not at all what that was. They've always been there. 2 (38m 32s): So, you know, I think about BLM and how they're trying to sort marginalize these groups and how they're sort of trying to make literally Israel look like an oppressor. It's just not the case, but that's exactly why they are in supportive Hamas and everything that I'm lost is trying to do. When 0 (38m 47s): We shut down those voices. That's one area. Another area is what are you getting in school? You know, we've talked about understanding the Nazi movement and the annihilation of a whole people group. And then we see people saying, well, we're oppressed, we're oppressed. And yet they turn into the oppressor and utilize Hitler's own words as though they don't know history of, we can talk about Israel and say, you know, this was a, you want to argue about who, who, who should be there. God gave them the land. Dude. God gave them the land. 0 (39m 26s): Israel has every ability to wipe out Palestine. They are, as you mentioned a powerhouse, they could wipe them off the map to Morrow, but instead they are trying to work together 2 (39m 41s): Calm. And they're also respecting human rights to the utmost degree. You know, they are doing everything 0 (39m 48s): They can perfect. But I'm saying, look at what's really going on here. And let me just let me just point out while they could wipe them off. They haven't. And if we look at history, we see that is real, has been there. We see that they have a stake, but that's the problem. The second problem, one wiping out all communication and anything that you don't like someone saying, and to the eradication of history, what are we teaching in schools or teaching social woke ism. We're not teaching real history. 2 (40m 25s): Yeah. Critical race theory, social woke ism, literally revising history to train people or to educate people on the, the BS joke of a, of a, of a concept that this little baby was born racist. You know what, as a baby, I didn't know. I was when I was a baby, when I was a kid, right. When I was in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, I lived in a small neighborhood in Dallas, a part of north Dallas that was developing north and kind of edging its way closer and closer to Oklahoma by the year. And you know, I had two best friends, one best. One of my best friends was that was a Mexican, a Mexican kid named Lance. The other best friend that I had was an Asian girl named Gabby. I didn't know that, that I was different. 2 (41m 5s): I didn't know that I was a little bit, you know, more pale, I guess you might say I had no idea. I just knew that we played Batman and ninja turtles. I knew that they lived a couple doors down. I knew that they had parents that loved them. I knew that, you know, they were my friends. I didn't know that there was anything, anything different about them, you know? And until society was like, Hey, you guys are different and you're different races and blah, blah, blah, is a thing that you're born racist is just absolutely joke. It's, it's a factor of, it's a function of socialization. It 0 (41m 38s): Makes sense. If you think that you could be born wrap your head around this, you can be born a male, but you are really inside a, you know, female gender is fluid, but why isn't race fluid. 2 (42m 1s): Right. Right. Why isn't it? Well, first of all, hate human race, right? Like we're all, we're all people, we're all humans, you know, even Caitlyn Jenner is as opposed to the idea that a by birth male who then becomes a trans woman, but that trans woman is not going to have a certain, certain advantages on the court or in the weight room, you know, on the playing field. That's just, can you imagine Bruce Jenner who became Caitlin Jenner? Can you imagine Caitlin going and competing and like in the women's freestyle or just any, any kind of women's event at one point, Bruce Jenner was the, the best number one athlete in the world. 2 (42m 49s): And to think that, to think that when he became Caitlyn, that he's not gonna have some sort of, or she's not going to have some sort of advantage over maybe Michelle Mendoza on the court, you know, Michelle Mendoza on the track, you know, like man, like there, there is a thing that you have to look to and it's nature. And when I did my, my 23 and me, like, I read my, the, the basic information on, you know, kind of who I am and what my family background is and what my DNA kind of says about my body and what am I being inclined to from a health or cancer perspective. But I was, I was literally, I've kind of evolved, I guess, to be sort of like the one who can open jars and the one who can carry lots of stuff for my wife, we are, there is a strong difference there for a biology perspective. 2 (43m 41s): You know, women are creators like women can, can, well, what was it? The birthing person, I think, was a term that I heard come out of, out of one of our Congress, people calling, referring to a woman as a birthing person. That was a little bit crazy to me, but women are built differently because they are built to literally create life, which is, I think an amazing thing. I, what was that? Danny DeVito movie twins. I think like, I, I really, as a male, like I would never carry a child. Like this is not possible. I will physically carry a child, but I'm not going to carry one inside my body and let it nourish to the point of birth. That's just not in my biology. Yeah. 0 (44m 21s): You know, we have changed breastfeeding to chest feeding now because apparently you don't know what you're capable of. Adam, you could be nursing. You, you, you, you guys have kids, you could be nursing. 2 (44m 34s): And what was that quote from meet the parents. I think it was the narrow he's like, I think he was like, I have nibbles, Greg, can you milk me? He can't, it's just not a thing, man. You just can't do it. How are we going to be such deniers of science? Because it was the, it was the far left. That was all about science last year. And now they're totally just denying science to their advantage. Well, yeah. I don't know if it's their advantage or not. That's not to say that as, as 0 (45m 5s): You know, I'm more of a libertarian, if you feel like you want to now, then you want to lipstick up and wear a dress, you know, and you feel want to get in touch with your feminine side. I'm not going to stop you, you know, as long as you're not hurting anyone, you know, 2 (45m 20s): I was a Dallas cowboy cheerleader one time for Halloween, really ugly. But the lipstick was there. The dress was there. I was pretty ugly, but I tried, but I mean, I'm right there with you though. I mean, yeah, if you want to, if that's your, if that's what makes you happy, I support that, you know? Absolutely. But I'm not going to deny science and say that me, if I decided to become a trans woman, I will ever carry a child. Like, it's just, it's just not a thing. I wasn't designed that way. And similarly, if I go and I compete on, you know, collegiate women's soccer or co collegiate women's weightlifting. I mean, I literally have an advantage. I, I think it's because I was born with natural testosterone that sort of developed my, allowed my body to develop. 2 (46m 5s): I do. Michelle had real concerns about some of those states that are making decisions for children who have not yet gone through puberty. We've we've obviously seen some headlines come out of Arkansas and some other states like that. But you know, at what point is it child abuse? When, when parents are making these decisions for the children who have not yet come into their own to decide what is right for them, 0 (46m 32s): That just, that just gets me. It just gets me, you know, here we are in crazyville the lunatics are running the asylum. There is no, which I, again, go ahead. You know, spout your ideas, try to run with it. I don't mind. What I mind though, is the shutting down of everything else that is not Liberty. That is not freedom. It is oppression. It is abuse. It is ignorance. It's feeding into ignorance. And how dare we sit back and think that we're so right. When, as I mentioned on yesterday's program, Adam, even God in the Bible says, come let us reason together. 0 (47m 17s): Test me, try me, prove me on this. You know, he praises in the Bible, the Bereans are praised because there are people that, you know, the gospel is shared with them. They're gone. Okay. Yeah. That's all cool and everything, but we're going to go back and see if this is true, right? That's praise. If God, isn't afraid of the challenges. If God, isn't afraid of a little testing, if God, isn't afraid to reason together and to, you know, go ahead, bring it essentially. Then what is your problem? 2 (47m 47s): Well, that's like what you said. I think last week it was like, Hey, if you're going to, if you're going to ask me questions about my faith or just, you're going to try and question where I stand, please do so throw those questions at me because I will learn something more about myself or about what I believe in, because I'll think a little bit deeper and maybe from a different angle, throw all those questions at me. Because when you, when you live in truth, you don't have to be afraid of whatever those answers might be. You, you just don't. But when you're living a lie and you're asked a lot of questions like that, the offensive is what people become. They become defensive because they might out themselves as a fraud. And I think that's kind of what we're seeing now of BLM. A lot of, a lot of people being defensive there. If you're living in a lie, you should be afraid because the truth will come out. 0 (48m 29s): And that's part of where we're at today in the news, the truth isn't coming now, but that's why programs like this are flourishing because people want to hear more that it's out there to find. It really is out there to find just don't be afraid of it. So here we are in crazy world, we have come to a place where we are mishandling the truth. We're not tellin
