Welcome to reach me apart from HBO real time.
Thank you very much less good anonymous, please, you went through the barrier. To get TAT did ride, mask videos, the bird. I really appreciate it
because it makes such a reference audio, preclude Jerry farewells, poor boy, There's nothing like a library of thirty days before the election field was like an hour. I want you, wanna go going out of business So there's, no one all this week, the president's fuckin flat out that it would have been saying as ever ever. These is not leaving you now that the law- Mr President refused to commit to be peaceful transference of power. Should he lose, I mean even banana republics
like this is bananas right. If you are the president, the only acceptable answer to the question is of will you submit to the peaceful transfer of power? Is yes but we're looking at it, strongly not will see what happens. Fuckin people insane the sky will do anything to deal in electing this week. He was talking about how we found, ballots thrown in the river yes, that's a big election problem. What asked balance that snarling Savings- Durham Black border in a red tape you gotta, get I now put it that way, but seriously I mean trot.
Called mail in voting today. This scam, the Democrats in trying to pull this. Is it this scandal be before the Supreme Court? Yes, which we are currently stealing a seat on. So what all you want is screaming and suing does nothing what democracy like president, whose squatter I think that the person for the gourd today, but all week, you know, rallies or the drum people had been chanting, fill that seat fill that seek even the two. Barriers are going but sounds good. But apparently the pic is gonna, be this army Army Amy call me lol.
Saying this name aloud, I'm sure she's a fuckin. Not religion. I was right about that, would do hurry back Amy call me Barrett, Catholic, really Catholic. I mean really really can make like speaking in tongues like she believing condoms which what she has in common with Trump does? He doesn't need about from stormy day, so she's going beyond the cord are Jeanne laying in state Trump visited Armitage's casket when he walked in everybody when, in the course of the ass kisser tromp. They told him. No sir they're saying coup.
Itself body, but we're losing our country glad relax, so drunk unveiled was it today. His is new, is new. His old is forever coming great national healthcare plan, which accords and not a bland at all, is never plan? It's just will work with Congress and Mexico will co pay for it? This plan is nothing ever plan spent two weeks the way since twenty sixteen in the time it took tromp not to come up with a plan. Nature came up with a whole new disease, terrible milestone, this big two hundred thousand dead from Verona Virus in America and rumours
the two hundred thousand dead was a big triumphant and this is sweet before she died. The make a wish foundation brought her a black teenager to yell at no I'm standing by their job. That's a fine job, I didn't do it and the washing post this week that the trouble an unguarded moment says racist stuff about blacks and Jews. Yeah. I got news for you. Post is not that grated guarded
either personally, he says things like blacks are lazy, Jews or greedy and slovenian women. Never in the mood for sex. We had a great hurry salaries, and parliament here is. Our here will be speaking, Likud Right, Jim Baluchi, but first that we as the longest serving independent in Congress, ran for the twenty twenty democratic presidential nomination. You know, I'm your love, em Bernie Sanders Bernie Leaving, but can you can hear me Now I get you
yeah, I passed the joint in the control room, so Bernie look, TAT, rested and ready. Better when they get off the campaign trail unless we gruelling campaigning. But look you made a speech yesterday you know it is about what we do in terms as he's not leaving, and I may This is a speech. You never thought you would have to make bill. I mean that's absolutely true, this country today faces enormous problems. We have mass, the income and wealth in equality with the only major country not to guarantee health care, the oil got millions of people working for our wages, we got climate change. We have the stomach racism. We got a whole host of problems. Never in a million years than I ever.
Thank God. I would have to give a speech about what do we do if a president refuses to lose office leave office? If he lives? Is I never never thought I would have to give that or anybody else, but that is where we are today and I would simply say, bill. I know you have made this point many many times listen to what trouble is saying. Don't rush off don't say undisguised crazy, say this. You know any any other day listened, What are you saying, He is saying over and over again is called the only way that we I e trump can Lou the election is if it is rigged and of course, in other words, if we win that's great, and if we lose, we really didn't lose because you all know mail in ballots on there dangerous there, a hoax there is. A scam
so we cannot lose this election and obviously we're not leaving office, but I've been. I may I ask you this question in April, I've been asking this Democrats for four years and and they pretty much just laughed it off. You said in April, ass to what? What? What? What do? We do? You said: will you mobilise the american people in a way that they have never been more lies before to remind the president, whether we like it or not, we live in a democracy. Is that I think we have to make it We are, then, if he loses the election he'll be out of office and replaced by the new president. I don't hear a plan there. I just hear a wish. We wish, that would have lay still no plan it well and ill. The bottom line is there are things that we have to do now to make sure. Biden, winds and if tromp attempts to stay and all this at the losing their it will be a number of plans out there.
Make sure that he has evicted from office. Why? But right now and the next five weeks, our job him and gave him badly, because the truth is We went in Michigan and was Johnson in Minnesota. In Pennsylvania, apparently Biden has now ahead in Ohio. We went in Florida. It will be very hot, very hard for tromp to try to sleep so my message is one he's good very hard. Again. I just got here what the real. I don't hear the bones on this, I just your. We wanted to turn out good at it should turn out good and where the good people, I don't hear what we're I've never heard what we are actually going to do what we can do well, there's you haven't heard it because never happened before in american history, so you are asking for a plan to do something that no one
As ever had to do before so we're going to have to any. I know not only when it has the specific plan, but at the end of the day, what will have to happen in my view, is the emerge. In people by the millions, and I would hope by the way that Republicans join us who the stand that democracy is more important than any particular candidate. They warrant and. They wanted and down they long journey now because they never join you and they don't believe that. I'm not talking about members of Congress, and the point is that trauma Tromp has dominated, isn't that who matter in common Canada is one of these. The american people would doesn't inevitably ends of people ass, a bill, millions of people after this election in one form or another, yet to be determined. What this guy you're? No longer the president, what for
in early January. You are leaving office, but there's no fool. Leave off the form, Does this mean? I know here's that the Atlantic, this week's as the trunk Pain is disgusting. Contingency plans to bypass the election result and appoint loyal electors, because we do of course, have a direct direct democracy. We have elected we have an electoral college in No Grunge days were Republicans hold the legislative Georgie. I've been looking into this electors. What does the constitution say about it? What can a cheater do? is this? Is this a norm or is this a law? It seems like it's a norm and that's what Trump is greater doing here. All these things that we thought were laws really weren't ray we're just things that people,
did, because other people had some degree of honor, but I John, so I'm not going to do it and apparent ease lamb doors or your point is right. In other words, theoretically, you could Biden, can win Michigan by six points and The trouble say what we think is massive vote of fraud, and the legislature is appointing translate of electors. If that's what you're talking about Theoretically they can do that, but the outcome in this country, some people to say sorry. That is not what Europe The and you're not gonna destroy american democracy. You're under estimating that reality, and I think that is exactly what will happen
with all due respect. I think you're over us demanding it. I know I don't know, because I dont know what what what form does it take we're we're in the streets every day, I've seen that the obscene people do that in countries I'm not here. Well, you ve never seen that here, because you ve never seen a president try to undermine american democracy in the way prompt may be trying to do it. So I'm saying here is: let's take one step at a time. The first step is: let us the fate tromp, let us to feed him Adler can I him badly have no choice but to leave office. If he refuses to do that, then we got plan number two and it's a little bit premature talk about it, but the bottom line is. I do not believe you, may disagree on this. I do not believe that people, in this country, including millions who put their.
Wives on the line to defend democracy you gonna say a roll over, it's ok must drop, you could say it offers. Even destroyed democracy and even as you lost the election, I don't think that's gonna happen. Frankly, ok! So what are you talk about privately with Republicans right now like this week? Personally I mean: did I hear a senator you work with meant Mcconnell for years you seem in the elevator. Do you David him Mitch. Look No, we don't agree on anything but you're, not really are we going to do this are I mean I see how you stole the Supreme Court seed. You switched on that, but you're not really going to let Trump do this. Well, you know that they are now giving lip service as soon as Trump repeated his remarks that he not leave office. Even if you lost your all these reports, Who can say how? Well you trouble says crazy things, of course,
he will we believe in the car. The two should we believe. In the rule of law. That is what they're giving lip service to do. I have absolute confidence, that republican senators will in fact have the courage to stand up the trump and say you lost the election, you out of here I think some will. I think some will not know how many will do the right thing. I don't know, but I'm county more on the american people than I on the Republicans in case of site in the best possible worlds, Biden, winds and he takes office. What do we do with these reports? begins after that ones, who showed when it mattered that they were willing to cast aside democracy Do we just like? Well, you know no biggie, you are willing to throw democracy under the boss, but come on back in. Is that what we say will know?
I think what you say is you gonna want guys. You showed an incredible disrespect for the constitution for the rule of law, for support of authoritarianism, our chairman, as one we have control of the Senate. Now and what we are going to do is use the Senate to represent the needs of the working families of this country whose needs have been. Lloyd and you are not going to US adult lecture US we are going to move forward in a democratic way, fair way, Finally, make sure that the desperation that working families are experiencing today: unemployment, low wages, no health care unable to send your kids college, whether you like it or not, whether a billion our friends like it or not. We are going to move forward and protect working families.
And restore peace in american market, namely. Thank you great to see you congratulations by the way on a great campaign and on moving a democratic agenda right where you wanted it to be a right. Thank you very much money so that all the CNN political analysts and the other of my vanishing country, a memoir Bacardi sellers, is over here to see you again and he's. A fellow countryman had instituted a host of the pod cast conversations with common common Hughes. Great to see you I write. So are you guys? You know, I must tell you. First of all, there is many times and we ve had an african american guest on the Show- and I said in the brutal production meeting: let's not talk about the black issue. I think that's it. That's a more of a compliment
they were all Americans rock people. We don't have always get the black question, but tonight you're gonna have to May we once had Andrew Sullivan Barney Frank to gay men as, let's have not gay not come up but live in that country anyone- so I just want to ask the first thing it seems like I live in a country where you're worth half the country's there's no racism. Member made many jokes about the polling. That always shows that about two thirds of Republicans say reversed. Racism is a worse problem. I thought of, and then so they say racism, is gone and then there's a big part now critical race theory there. Where racism is everything, everywhere,
please tell me that we all agree somewhere in the middle of. Definitely, I mean, I think we all agree. I think we would all agree that the answer somewhere in the middle, but for many people in this country, particularly black people for the last Four hundred and one year we ve been bill of rights is not something that we can say today today, I'm going to put my race suit on and put my race card in my pocket and go out here and play it and tomorrow may not only we were dealing with this I'm raising like children, I go to work every day, have to be honest politically black and bring my whole self on, won't see an end to go out there and articulate the issues that directly affect my community and so in this area. What you want to talk about, there's no fuel to it right, but it's also exhausting to I mean I don't want to talk about. I don't want to be on tv where we have another funeral, whether or not it's George Floyd RD. Blake Brianna Taylor. I don't want to do that that too deep black in Amerika, I think, if necessary, to understand. That's black in America is to be in a perpetual state of grieving, and we ve seen that.
Through our call that we ve seen that throughout this happens, to be a reality in the way. I look at racism, it's kind of like murder. It exists everywhere in every society since the beginning of time, it probably will always exist. We can make progress in reducing it, but it's always going to be there to some degree. The notion that we can ever get it to zero is naive, and you told me We always have to denounce it, of course that, as you say, I definitely think racism exists in America. There is no doubt about that is also possible to exaggerate how much racism exists to some mistake, a problem for being about racism when it's actually about a particular institution like the police, are their criminal justice. System being flawed in ways that don't get hurt. Someone grown- and this is this- is important, because this is what no other show will talk about
it has to be talked about. Are we reacting with data and facts in reality to the police problem, or are we just reacting desire? I think so fast question. So are we reacting to data? The data shows that in the past year, one thousand in ten people as of today and then killed by law enforcement. We know that black people in this country are two times more likely to be killed by law enforcement than their white colleagues, or I would say there is also the factor of how many and the reactions we like the US call poor policing. I mean what that would have thought. Roclin went when one black people account for fifty percent of murder, victims and perpetrators and are over represented in contacts with the police. You have to take that into account. You also take into account over policing of those
cities as well. You also take those like the Americas say they do not want the police do funded. Many say they want as many or more police. Well, let's that so defining the police just so we can be clear since we're what the word I was watching. This does not mean that when I called nine hundred and eleven and my mom calls nine hundred and eleven, the police will not show up, but what it does mean is that we won't have bloated police budgets, but instead will have after school centers and instead, we'll have our mental health professionals who arrived on the scene. Instead, we will actually be able to build. That's what I think we need less policing a petty drug crime corrected. Look at that we got it.
That we are making progress bright, but but more policing of homicide and violent crime and neighbourhoods where over half of crimes are violent. Crimes are not getting solve. So it's a complex to me. Just the people have this idea that I want to see the police budget cut by half. I want. I want to see the police improve whatever that means for the budget. That might mean spending the war to train them more and so on, and so, but I think we agree, because I do not fully but I I don't want. I just don't want less pleased. I just want better police right. I said that if you were really because you know, I worry that there's gonna be more riots and more unrest in the street and and over something that may not be true. Now, Charles Barkley and shaky alone, Neil commented about Brianna Taylor. Yesterday they gotta world a shit about
today and I think what they were saying is we don't know if this is a racist, cop, killing or just plainly it's horrible policy, no knock and yeah Buddy Lee anyone going to get killed in that situation? I agree, and I think it don't. We don't need to have. If you don't retweet, we don't need to have no knock warrant. We don't need to have chokeholds. We need to ban those across the board. I think Democrats and Republicans alike. It's if you want to talk if you want to take them tonight, show a policy initiative. Is that, however, it is not the fact of the killing of Brianna Taylor per say it's the fact that there was a accountability, that is the biggest lack in Moscow, makes that at best I didn't think I would be quoting Malcolm X on billboard. Enable Malcolm x always talked about the fact that the most disrespected person on the planet is the
woman here and we see that day in day out, but it's the lack of accountability. You cannot tell me that if that was a white woman who was asleep, the police came in her house fired twenty, that there will be no accountability indictments for the murder of that some five years ago, a man named a white man named Derek crews. In a very similar situation, no not warrant, they shot him the face completely unarmed. What that tells me is, there is a much deeper issue than racism. There's reflexive urge to go to the race issue. I understand it, but the truth is that police in general generally do not get punished for misbehave, I mean everywhere and its white, its black, or so we have to solve that issue, of course, but reflexively making it about race, and- and this is there were there- there cops doing the cop job
with a cop handbook and cop training. I feel like that's like the biggest problem here now. Talk about the thought of you have said: racist cops, killing unarmed black is a false premise, because if you look at again the data it's like, if you threaten cops in any way, they will kill you. That's the problem is that as long as they have a very difficult, but none of this country fuller follow. Not, let's be honest. No, I I agree, and I agree with you threaten them. If you resist, if you do, they think that the that that allows them to just neutralize the threat I fucking that's why they emptying, like the whole clip into big gotta, stop doing that emptying the whole clip when they feel threatened there I guess I'm not sure that it's a race. I fundamentally believe, though, that you see more de escalation.
You see more individuals who are able to go home. Dylan Roof killed nine people in a church, including one of my friends right. He kill nine people drove all the way to North Carolina. A burger king right. He happened to make it the prison alive and an end in the most recent case would count Rittenhouse, Why? Why crosses lines with the eight hour fifteen to kills two protesters walks directly by the police with his hands up and they do say, combat come on come on back, and so you see, apparently there are planted it did they not happen, but that I mean the truth is
that very thing happen for every example who come up with. I can come up with examples of white people getting killed in precisely the same circumstances that bought that black people do either reaching forgot our seeming to reach for it on and if we're talking about what violent crimes go unpunished. Actually, the bigger problem is that black murders go unsolved more often than than why murders do right. So it's not that the police are artists, ignoring white violence or violence committed by white people right. If anything, they need to be paying more attention to violence that is committed and suffered by backing. I think that I think that what the point that I'm attempting to make is not necessarily that interaction, although I think that's a big issue, and one of the larger points is the lack of accountability.
We had and when our law enforcement officers officer. However, when alone when a law enforcement officers goes in and and just as you said in these a clip or they, we all admit that that law enforcement officers have very difficult jobs right, they keep our community safe. They have very, very difficult jobs. I am just saying that when you absolutely do not need to kill somebody or shoot somebody seven times in the back or whatever it may just be aground, and am you know, things have changed in that area, but I remember doing editorials on this show about you have to hold coptic animal for this, and it did happen the last five years. A lot of them who did those are, renders things like shooting someone the back. We're held too can agree on a sailor, doesn't even get justice of right where's, this very different area, because the cop was fired upon first right. Obviously, Kenneth Walker had every right to fire because he thought they were intruders totally understandable. However, once the copies fired upon
She has to have a right to fire back the there's ultimately level, and I don't want it, you don't aim is murder, but it doesn't it. But yes, because if you want Can you do not announce yourself right? right. We wouldn't you say, that's what I am just like. I get it. I ok, but let me just. Can I say this: let me alone. I think the system actually worked perfectly honestly do because I dont think the system is built for people of color, not built for black folks to have accountability, and it's just not. The system worked. The way it was supposed to what we have to do is either tear the system down or reform it in. Imagine what law enforcement should look like. We ask earthquake regiment something else I mean we seem to have changed the goal from not seeing color. That's the old liberalism than I grew up with what what you gave me a look, you think color
Why is a law that not that we don't see it doesn't matter, no, never that is certainly the that was never the go, no that dollars the goal. That is the goal I who department was their civil rights movement for Martin Luther King buyer about it and no one knows you're at your age. I know is never the gold you didn't have you didn't have snake in s e Elsie didn't have king, so you could all of a sudden not see us we're being y know. If that is not my saying so does it matter, which is dated races, race. Look at this, but I'm not gonna judge you on the basis of it. I'm gonna judge you as an individual, but that is something that has been lost in the discourse right now, that's not even a goal for many people anymore. That people want to say. My blackness is the most important thing about me. You have to meditate on your whiteness and feel guilty for now. I don't want you to feel guilty about your. Why not as I once you don't recognize you why you didn't bring my? I know what I'm saying is honouring my arm Blackstone home, but I bring our black self
The table, I bring it to work. I want you to see the diversity I want you to. See the richness richness of my culture, the richness of my heritage. The richness of my blackness, I mean- I don't know why I don't know if we're really having an argument about it. I mean I recognize those qualities about you they have to be on my mind, every second we're having a beer, or this
the game today, boy you're diverse man, but I want you to give it back. You, though I know that, but nobody wants you to be colorblind. I just found that non sensible note, but it to become obvious in no one can actually be blind to call it. Even literally colorblind people can see at the end of the day we have it's about where we are pushing towards ass. A society are pushing towards a society where, where I have friends who say their kids in elementary school are getting workshops, whether separating like is from blockades, and this is how their teaching them about race, their teaching them to see their friends as a black person. First. Is that the direction we going in terms of our anti racism, or do we have a different anti racism?
that's more universal and says. Obviously, racism is horrible and the reason it's horrible is because races only skin deep and I'm out of fifteen year old daughter of a fifteen year old daughter. He left me as conflicting tobacco, possibly at the death of George Floyd. She got with their girlfriends, put on a mass dressed in all black and she went out and painted a black lives matter sign right. She and her two other black girlfriends had black lives Madison. I was conflicted. Why? Because I was so proud. We come from activists, I am really, but I was also so distraught that fifteen she can't be like bear trump. She just go out and be a fifteen euro. She has to reaffirm Herc humanity in her identity, on a sign in fight for people to recognise that humanity. I just However, on this to return, once the theme adds upsets me, there's the hat, A headline I saw the New York Times yesterday, Trump Womb commit to peaceful transfer of power, and it was on page fifteen. I this is not the paper I grew up with, but ok
they wrote retro trials refusal to endorse, perhaps the most fundamental tended up democracy as any present it in. Memory surely would have was the latest incidents of which he has cast and uncertainty about the November elections. I would put that on the front page crazy make erodes the once unthinkable notion that a president might refused to accept the results of an election? Well, it wasn't unthinkable to everyone I'm not going to say this anymore, but we did make a monitor, and then I'm going to shut up about it, but it does fuckin, stick and micro. That nobody listened to me and then I got no help from the New York Times the Washington Post scene and mainstream made should have amplify. Are you staring at me? I'm not staring I'm saying: mainstream media. I got no help amplifying the point. I was
and he was entering me I'll, show that tape too, but showed the first montage, please I don't see him leaving willingly if I dont see him leaving under any conditions, including people not on the door with guns that he'd be scarface. I just don't see this man giving it up, and I just think he's has many cards. He hasn't blade yet He is not going to leave until he wants to leave. I dont think he would even leave if he lost an election in twenty. Funny how I'm the guy, who says he's leaving even if he loses the electoral people, have been saying, I'm an alarmist and I'm crazy gets. I keep saying he's not gonna leave. Even if we lose is, I don't think he's leaving he's. Not
going to leave, even if he loses the election, so I'm a third rate respected Canadian who says if he loses its not leaving. Now I've been saying for a very long time now that I don't think he's leaving- and I won't bet you a million dollars right now, then, if you lose the twenty twenty election right and you won't leave, please not leaving you probably have lost the elections trump and probably will not leave him. He's made me it was actually, I always say, he's not gonna. Let he's not leaving on January twenty, because, if trump losers election in November. He's not going to leave I've been saying for a number of years that if Trump loses the election, not going to leave. I cannot picture that man gracefully conceding and walking away you're the only person I could get interested in my theory that drunk was not
I believe I can say I get it back. You know these. These mainstream media people, don't like me proud, because people like you comment on my show: people who walk outside the boundaries like I do. We don't just you know, take a bend. And it just pirate the one true opinion, so we're bad people so that cover this show, but on this one you could have given me a little help because there is, there was one guy. There is one person who was amplifying this trump, this crazy building. As you know, is not leaving. I'm telling you he's not
leaving in four years. You know he's not leaving you know, he's never leaving office. Not you he's not leave you know that he's not leaving. You know that he's, telling you he's, naturally be he'll. Never leave you know he's not leaving, don't you never going he's gotta stay all right. So that's it. I won't bring it up again, but but can I ask you, gentlemen, one what do you foresee for November December January? I want to know your prediction and, if you think, there's something we can do about it and also it's very relevant to the race issue, because the stolen election will be staying very much as a race issue. Of course, largely it it is also a minutes. It's everybody's election being stone, but is especially an african american electorate that is being deprived.
So what? What do you think? What do you think I think democratic proverbial bed weathers? You know that I know that we are. Hard on Bernie, but I love you. I love you. I love you too, but I think that there has to be a priority. He's asking Willie Lee, but you gotta beat him first right. That's the most important thing. I don't think you're gonna have an election day. You think that's! The most important thing is winning right. That's first, because you can't get the step to it matter. I think I don't think they got matters. I don't think it's gonna be election day. I think is gonna, be election weak or like right. It is well, that's that's on an opinion, that's the truth and also dialects won't come in on November. I didn't even know, I mean trunk taught us to think of the things that are, you know not imagine why didn't you can just take up mailboxes just take him up off the street. I do know that it is possible that again nor
so. He just runs right over there. I would encourage people just to go down and vote early, don't put your but don't worry about it in a mailbox, go down and vote early. If you can't put a mask on stance it that's right. That's right! You gotta get viruses scary, but from a scary. That's that that that should be our back druggist area than the virus with Trump keep People are always trying to interpret what he sang and put it in one of two categories: either the he serious category or the category where he said a white. Why can't we use our nukes and then you know nothing has come of that. If so, my bed is at the end of the day that if he, if he is defeated, he will leave but he'll complain. He won't concede. He'll say it was really goes, the deep state, its fake news, thirty percent of the country will agree with him and he ll feel vindicated from whatever mansion he's living.
And for that, for the end of time. That's my guess what I'm really worried about the district. I think so I mean what what I'm really worried about is that there will be riding in the streets. There will be writers on the left, burning cities if trump winds or seems like you, you want on election day. You know because the mail and ballots having come on, I'm afraid there could be far right militias clashing with the riders, although I think, Whoever wins, there's gonna be trouble in the street. I think I don't know. I I I believe in it I think the president enjoys this violence, but of course it does double Dorothy boy, it's all good, for you know it's amazing to me real quick about the chaos when we were heading. That's ordinances in Michigan and Whiskey, you have all of these armed militias with these eight hours in a cage walking in paying the governor of Kentucky and effigy and noble.

Well, there is a lack of start by state damsel with a godfather of cannabis, urine gel of Borneo,
I support it gives a really found out the real history of Canada's. It's never been about the plan. It's always been about whose usually so what we know is back in America's marijuana. They came early in the last century, like nineteen, ten, from sailors from ever caribbean sailors, income, the Newport to New Orleans, and then there is the refugees from the Mexican Revolution. I came on the southern border and there's a lot of people in a magnet didn't like those people and they created race control with the laws. That's when the laws began and they
Retorted ended the disparity in the community of color being arrested the enforcement, yet, which is why I am so glad you wrote that Africa is something we could have got too and the other discussion. The drug war zone is responsible for so much about possible pathways, maniacal really in high school highschool. Well, hours I never wanted, and Oil Eliza save myself a white guy who runs a platform on making money selling part. I got a tv show on at all it's on the railroad channel. By the way I have to sit on my farm, I'm doing something that they did this forty thousand people incarcerated and agree on board
I would call we gotta get amount, should arrive general. She everybody Fox NEWS. Yes, this is such a Fox news as to sob trying so hard to find celebrities who were voting for drum it just said last week's front page news was that liberal Hollywood has lost a mayor, Armstrong. HU I looked up on. I am B b in it said, beats the fuck out of major look. I'm glad to Morrow won't be bullied into silence, but nobody's bowling her. We just like her to wear a little faster on our grandparents,
Latte down there all of selling a handbag online. There are two things that can be new and fake or real, but used so not ungrateful there's no such thing as a gently loved handbag, his ledger and brought back mountain gently love this. My friend is a second hand. Purse do humans have to explain how spell drop whatever. It is they're doing to band together and spend hours in a desperate fight to return a beached whale to the sea. But then, though, walk by this guy like get a job, was there? you're. All of salesman spends in our telling me how reliable the car is. The manager again
when an hour on how I need an extra warranty. It means for my great new car, that's also appeases, yet they're all since the trophy for Russia's teacher of the year looks like a dick the words were best porn will we must look like a book
and you can see by the look on that teachers phase that addiction, the ward, makes its recipient very happy, especially when she said. I know exactly what I'm gonna put it. And finally, new rule power is like owning rabbits. The morgue everyone's mind easier. It is to get a lot more That's actually not a new rule, it's a rule as old as time, and it was my theme in this space two years ago, when another Supreme Court vacancy was in the news theme that power begets power should be on everyone's mind right now. The idea that when you
whose power you ve not only lost that fight. You made it harder to win the next one Our work when Democrats lose elections, they lose the ability to appoint judges. Trump has appointed a quarter of the entire federal bench and, unlike his wives, that's for life. In Florida the people voted to restore voting rights to ex felons. But that's not really gonna happen because trumpet pointed five. This six appeals judges. Who found a way to undo that, and, as is so often the case, make it harder for Democrats to vote, which means more republican senators who appoint more conservative judges. Power is a perpetuating cycle like when Terminator build more robots.
Of course, Democrats are screaming now about republican hypocrisy over Trump filling the Ginsburg seed in an election year basis, One thing when it was Obama another saying the complete opposite: they sleep at night, I'll, tell you how like a baby. Because, like a baby like a baby, they have no morals and if you haven't gotten it yet this kind of completely bald faced premeditated hypocrisy should make it clear. There's! No, catching them in an inconsistency. They don't care because all that only about power. The only rule Republic Try by the only world I play by is the people who will make the rules power talks users walk.
Nancy policies responds to stopping tromp getting a third seed on the court. This quote. We have arrows and our quiver that I'm not about to discuss great now the Democrats are bringing arrows to a gunfight but I don't think have any arrows in our quiver. I think our quivers bear they of the power and they're going to use it to make a court with six conservatives and when the twenty twenty election wind up in the lap of that court as their practically already promising, it will guess who wins. We can't stop them from getting the court see, which means we can't stop them from picking the election when it's like being in an arm wrestling contest. You can come back from here, almost impossible. Come back,
Here how different it all could have been, that's a old wounds, but all the Hilary equivocating is from twenty. Sixteen the people who said she was racist, not really that different from Trump the ones, Third party, the ones you stayed home, because you know the lesser of two evils. Sorry, but you I'll have to eat it, one more time because, oh how I would love me some about Hilary evil right now,.
You know the evil, where liberals would currently have a six to three majority on the court, the evil where people wouldn't be facing having there of care taken away or their right to vote or where America wasn't sliding into autocracy. Yes, yes, let's look at the alternative universe of a few more people in twenty. Sixteen had told themselves yeah she's, not my favorite, but you only get two choices in our system. Its price, we better to make sure this same competent person gets in as opposed to a malignant nurses, Matt Universe, we're still in the Prague Paris climate Accord, and IRAN's nuclear programme is still frozen and maybe
I was Greenland. There have been none of the roll back on clean air and water. Dreamers. Don't have to worry about getting tossed out of the only country they ve ever known. William bar is just a right wing. Crank self publishing a book on our moral decline and brick have a nice drinking from home. It's it's a wonderful world, this world, people here, in the words painted only think of our colleague and no one has made or heard of a pink pussy had let alone tried to knit one. And look nation as fundamentally unhealthy as this one could escape a pandemic unscathed, but I think Hilary would have done a little better than let them drink bleed.
So the Supreme Court, here's oral arguments to overturn Obamacare on November tenth once this new justice is seated Obamacare is likely gone and after that role, verses so I hope you enjoy carrying your rape baby to term.
