A look at the DC insurrection. Also, a sober reminder of Trump’s “alleged” interference with the Georgia election results.

All right, it's nus to us the week ofJanuary Eleven Wo Thousand and twenty one, the the fall out of the capital riots,man. That was crazy. That was crazy. We have to talk about that. Of course, wewere off last week when that was you know just before that happened, andthere was a lot of news leading up to that so wellvercap all of thatcraziness and give you the latest, because there are a lot of developmentswith the capital riot. Ah, there's some horrible footage rightthere of an officer being crushed by the mob horrible horrible situation,and in this this capital Riodt story just completely buried a huge hugestory just before that of of trump getting on the phone and trying toantimidate Georgia into turning the election results over to him in a phonecall that was released by the Washington Post. All I wanted do is Igus one of by elevenhousand, seven hundred and Eighloks yeah, both of these stories kind of lead into each other, and let's go news to us. Our first show oftwo thousand and twenty one. It's new to Jason and Chris are here: Katie is outon Assigmont she'll, be back Toueddyn. Hello.

You know every time we takesome time off, of the show, which is very rare. There are major news storiesthat are just unbelievably big. I don't know we should stop taking off, becauseI think it does something to the fabric of the universe, possibly but man, our mental health. Weneed a break once in a while. Don't we yeah absolutely yeah and we have thequality of life issue a about wife, worklife balance right this one hour aweek. Really does it to me yeah, it just completely throws off mybalance in life. I think it let let's you know, let'swill getding aside, we put a lot of effort into the show come on it doeslike a while. I feel good to be back, though I feel refreshed yeah yeah thattoo, and we'll get back to to doing our live video in a couple weeks to got toget some stuff worked out on the on this end technically, but that's stillsomething that we're going to do in case you're wondringer. That ismaybe like one person but we'll get back to that this year. So yeah a lotof big stuff coming fo, tw thousand and twenty one. It would be great to domore. Video A, I think, that's kind of our plan, so we're all pretty excitedabout that right. We're all you guys said you like the video I like thevideo yeah, okay, cool, so yeah. I want to be able to bring guests on va videoand all that and get our youtube channel going. Soi'll be it'll, be fun,Ibe, fig things before the capital rides what'shappening on Social Media Out, asked Katy but she's out on assignments, shedid post a poll and it says: Have you received your covedreleaf check yet andfifty five percent said? Yes, forty four percent said no wait from the the new round or theoriginal the new round, the six hundred dollars.Oh Yeah. That would be no. No. That would be a now one. My end yeah yeah,no yeah. I don't think any of us havegotten it, but I know I was surprised that fifty five percent of our twitterfollowers that that responded to this half I was like Weal Tho already goingout. That's pretty fast, go ahead and make a donation to your favorite radioshow and podcast yeah just go to Adam Corrolla's website,and I think he uas a donate one O wo O. Excuse me Kati tweeted, something really funnythat went semiviral, probably one of Ur, our biggest performing post of the weekshe screenshotted a the dictionary term treason. Then she got her finger andwrote trump over the screen shot and she tweeted that and people lerallylike that, one that really got people going speakingof twitter. They did bands onald trump yeah, that's pretty crazy, four yearsto eight but yeah for five years. Really, if you thinkcan add thecampaign, I mean fair enough, and you know I figure give thim a year but yeah. It wasn't shocking at all to seethat, but the biggest thing about that is they let him get away with e lowthat they shouldn't have in fact giving him that platform. For so long,...

...one could argue led up to the our firsttopic here: the capital riots- and you know the fervor around that and and thedeath of five people. This way you got Yogotta like nip these things in thebud, not let them get out of control and I think a lot of people ere sayingget this guy off twitter like what are he's doing, is dangerous and witther'slike yeah, it's in the best interest of the of the country to know what thepresident is thinking, how about them finding their courage.After like with like less than two weeks left to go, you know, I think it hals much to dowith the fact that warnock and Asoft one there run off election in Georgia. Putting the Senate back in the controlof the Democrats and Surmou Democrats will have unified control of the government andso all of a sudden they're like oh we're for regulation, wherefore Yeahwe've been against trump this whole time. I think you're right, like thesecorporations, do they do tend to switch their tune basedon who's in power, yeah yeah. But let's talk about the capitalriots that was just in the sane last week, the'l fall out afterward two andthere's some updates on it. The thirty eh an in depth. Look at this week's mostimportant stories. Now I hate sing. Yes, real, quick! Maybe this! I think thisis more season of treason. Oh Yeah Yeah. It could be the season ofTrea. Actually, you know what I think you're right it is. THIS ISNA e've beencalling this since we started this show right at okayjtwas, a treasonist pile-and this is just the latest chapter in that.Okay, long long on worry excuse us, let us refile the story under a differentpleas category. The season Yes- and I it has all come to ahead-hopefully probably not probably not, but the lead up to the riots at thecapital were pretty alarming and it's not like we didn't know. This is goingto happen when I say we, the US intelligence community, they knewbecause there were farright conspiracy, theorists and popular websites outthere with users. Talking about this event happening on January,sixththy stopped the steel event. They were encouraging people to show up inDC to to. I don't even want to say, demonstratebecause to me they're, not demonstrators, they are. They aredomestic terrorists, so they were like asking people to show up and beterrorists. It was like you know, putting it like iceis,putting a call out there for Ghottists, it's crazy, so and only that thintheyre elected officials too. Ere also part of this thing, like Ted Crewse,Ted Crewse, Rob Ron Johnson, who else Roger Marshall of Kansas, Mike Brown ofIndiana Andall. These Republicans that were saying that they were going tochallenge the certification of the lectoral college on the sixth and theywere kind of kind of dumping gasoline on this fire, which is crazy. The you know thesefolks are part of Congress. They know what theirrole is and what they can do, and they were just fanning the flames with noreal substance, but they couldn't do anything to stop e the certification of like teral college, on the sixth anyway, but they were,they were stoking the fire, because a lot of these folks are, they have. You know their eyes on two thousand andtwenty four and they want to run for president. They want the BA. They wantDjts base to help them in four years. It's crazy because yeah, W they'rethreating, our very democracy and thet I mean- is a clear amd present threat yeah. Sothese these, these trump supporters are getting in from Republicans they're,getting it from Fox News, they're, getting it from a lot of differentplaces. There Qan on message boards saying that the election is beingstolen. We got to do something about it. It's just like Alex Jones bright partlike yeahsthe. First time the US capital has been taken by force sincethe war of Eighteen, twelve wow, how far we have fallen, so it all. You know, and of course, DonaldTrump himself has been fanning this flame ever since he started his whole existence in politics, but leading upto...

...last week on December nineteenth, hetweeted quote: statitically impossible to have Lost Tho two thousand andtwenty election big protest in DC on January sixth, be there it will be wild, we'll be wild, he tweeted and then atthe rally. This is just insane because w when this new started to come outabout people breaching the capital, I was kind of confused at first. I didn'trealize, because I wasn't following it, you know like blowby blow. I didn'trealize at first Tok me a couple hours to figure out that trump had a rallyjust beforehand where he was pretty much telling his supporters to go. BumRush, the capital building yeah. He addressed the crowd. You addressed the you know all these people in front ofthe White House and he told him to walk over to the capital building and here'saudio of that areas. We got TA walk down to the capital and we get a cheer on our bravesenators and Congressmenn and women and we'll probably not going to be cheeringso much for some of them, because you'll never take back ourcountry with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong yeah.So that's a you know. A dog whistle to his supporters have to afeter showstrength have to be strong, in other words, storm the capital go, take AOChostage with Sypptie, go, get Nancy Pelosi and Mike Pincstat trader he's atraidor to we don't like Mike pens, anymore, apparently and get grasslywhile we're at it. That way. If we get grassly, we gov to Palosi and pence,then you know it came really dangerously close is happening. Thosethree either being held hostage or executed, which is a very likelypossibility than the whole succession of power, is thrown off. Balance andtrump could claim martial law and instill himself as a dictator. That'show close we came, and it's really like. We came like moments away from thathappening seconds. We got so luvely. A couple turns right like if they thatgroup only took like two or three wrong turns they would have taken. The rightturns right. They could have taken out the next three people in the successionof our government, and this is all being goaded by thepresident himself- he's literally sicking violence on Congress theattacking his own soil. HOW IS THISNOT TREASON? They had a news in front of the capital building theyerected anews: No, no yeah a gallows yeah. They were chanting Ang Mike Pence as theywere marching into the capital building thatname th. That just I mean I think I cannot believe this actuallyhappened. I still, I can't it's hard for me to believe this. Happene itit was a cou attemp and we came so dangerouslyclose to losing our democracy and we are. We are like almost a week removedfrom when this originally happened as we're doing the show and somehowDonnald trump is still the president, how the fuck is that, how is he still the Presdent? He triedto overthrow the government through a a coup, violent co and he is still the sittingpresident. What the Fuck Ihow have to like still play thispolitical bullshit game get the guy out of there. I know that'syou know. The articles of impeachment are moving forward. Well talk aboutthat in a second, but you know back to the day of the riders, some dressed inmilitary fatigues. They, you probably saw the footage of them going above thewall. They were, you know, pushing over the barricades and some police officersactually laying them through the barricades a lot of investigationsgoing to have to go down there and S. U T A really scary situationyeah! Well, I you know going to that a lot of times like in a situation thatthose police officers found themselves in where they were completely overrunand undermanned. Like that. You know their instruction is to let people buy.There's nothing they can do right like there's twenty people against thousandslike what are you going to do? Well, there's footage of officers waving inthe crowd, though I gew what you're saying for their safety, but there'snot thing. All of them are like that, but yeah you know there's. Definitelynot all of them were just letting a Bando because they were part of it. Iknow not all of them, but there is war. Some, I think, they're investigatingthat I mean there was allegedly that will find out, hasinvestigations on fold, but they said that there were police officers andmilitary personnel or former military...

...personnal from all over the countrythat attended this, and that were part of this yeah. So these maniacs are going insideof the capital building and Congress was like just inches away from beingexecuted. A members of Congress were, and they were inside huddling and theywere in a secure area, which you know if these guys knew how to get to, theywould have. I don't know how secure it was. It could have like just been a roomthat they hato adore. They didn't open. Who knows where it was well. I thinkthey got like they put pants and Pelosi for sure in abunker, yeah they're not saying exactly wherethey were hiding because it'd be. I don't think they want that informationout there Oy know that I'm sure that they do have an underground bunker.Don't you think? Oh Yeah, I'm pretty sure they do. I read a whole book aboutthe United States Network of bunkers that was built during the Cold War tomaintain contuity of government and there's dozens, and maybe I by hundredsof them across the country. I could be wrong. Maybe you wouldremember Chris R'T. isn't there like anunderground bunker system connected via tunnels that connect like the WhiteHouse and the capital building and the and the Pentagon? I don't know if they're connected, buteach site has some sort of defensive, reinforce pacement area yeah, so that's probably where theytook all these. These people of Congress right yeah, imagine imaginethey could get there. Where the you know these trumpers or like walking. You know coming charging apolice officer as he's backing up he's, got like his he's backing up the stairs and likehave you seen that video, where he's by himself and like these guys, are likecharging after him and wwhere. They beat him with an American flag. No, Ihaven't seen that one, no IAS, a single officer and like as he's backing up thestairs he's going upstairs and like he looks to his left for a second, and hegoes right when he looks left, that's the Senate Chamber and the doors wideopen an and he led them away from the Senate Chamber. Oh I read about that. Ididn't know if there was. There is a video of that yeah. If they would havegone right, they would have gotten into the Senate Chamber and who knows whatwho they would have been able to to get wow t's, crazy yeah. I think one of themost extraordinary images from all of thatis the picture. I don't know if there's video or nottwo but of like the Sergeant Sergeant and arms, or s sergeant, ofarms, whatever of either the Senate or the house, they have physicallybarricated the door to the chamber with heavy furniture like and they have their masks on because ofcovid and they have their guns drawn because these protesters, this mindlessHord, is clawing and scratching their way through the windows set into the door. And you know this is the floor. Thelegislature- and you know it just there- was something about that image withmaskon masks on to guard against a deadlyviral pandemic guns drawn man, mindless, hoarde, barricaded doors on likespiritually and symbolically. This country is descended into full onzombiapocalyps mode yeah for the purge yeah you're right, that's like theclosest thing to is ombiapocalypse Yo could experience yeah, that's freakinginsane. HERE'S NANCY PLOSY! She went on sixty minutes and talked to LeslieStall about her experience here she is. The mob was free to roam the halls. Onegroup making it right up to speak, Er Pelosi, suite of offices, this doorthey broke down. She can SA. Oh, my goodness e Bo thatown look at that.They broke the door, they smashed it and went through to another door behindwhich polose's young staff cowered terrorized, the staff went under thetable. baccaded the door turned out the light and were silent in the dark underthe table, Nto the table for two and a half hours. Oh, my God, that's Gointo leave some scars,...

...but you know it's even more fucked upthan all of that believe it or not, because leading up to this whole thing,there were a whole bunch of I guess: Brand New Pentagon, appoinint tes and alot of these iven even make the sense like much sense. At the time. Peopleare like. Why are these new Pentagon appoint es happening right now, butthese same new Pentagon apointees put significant restrictions on the capitalbuilding protections for January sixth, and that is part of the reason why itmakes us look like a planned premeditated attempt to murder Congressor at least hold them hostage, because we have't a happened that was like aweek or two after the election, it back in November, where they started makingthese moves and like that was the first like time where we're like you know, if youwere paying attention, you knew something was going on and somethingwas going to happen, maybe not to this level. But you knew some. Some shadybullshit was going to go down yeah this. They want to do like a NN.Eleven commission style type investigation on this, because they'rethinking that this has been premeditated and planned by people within our own government forquite some time, and it's really fucked up, and it actually could have been alot worse because you guys have all seen the the video of, of course, theguy in the black military garb holding the zipties. There's a couple peoplewalking round Zipties, but not only that a lot of people were arrested forfor in they found weapons. One Guy Christopher Albertz wasarrested, leaving the capital building wearing a boltproof vest and they founda ninemiemeter Hanm Gon with two high capacity magazines on him. Otherprotesters were bulletproof, vests and Milli military style gear, a GuyCleveland, grover meredith, was charged with threatening polose after theyfound a lock nineteen, a nine mimeter pistol, a travor x, ninty, five rifleand hundreds of rounds of ammunition in his truck and trailer close to thecapital. Of course, there were pipe bombs found as well. This was supposedto be a much much bigger attack and I don't know exactly how it didn't get fullyfulfilled, but America got very very lucky. On January sixth, I agree yeah. I think the this couldhave turned into masscre very easily, and that goes both ways. I know the capitalpolice right now are taking a lot of heat or for failing to for allowing this mop to break in inthe first place, and you know be police in general and theDC area are taking heat for you know how fiercely they crack down on blackwives matter protest over the summer, but you know seem to go very lenientlyon these mostly white protesters, but you know it took a lot of restraint not to blindly open fire and, have you know thirty casualties bloodying, the hallsof Congress? That was imagine where we would be today. If that wasthe narrative and how even more fired it up, people would be on both sides. It wouldbe an even more dangerous situation. I think yeah, that's good point is very fragile.An the and the way it all played out was I mean five people did die,including one police officer, but it could have been much much worse and itwas intended to be much what much worse these people weren't there to do, whatthey did. They failed at something that they were trying to do and that poleaseofficer that was murdered. His head was bashed in with a fire extinguisher bythis mob, because blue lives matter, like l same proof, an that's, a bluelives matter how how oes, one like I don't! Even the six sick individuals that did that yeah, my God yeah, that's the firsttime, I've I heard the circumstances of his death Jesus and meanwhile Senator Ban Ben Sassy says that WhiteHouse AIDS told him that trump was delighted, as he was watshing all thisunfold on television. He was delighted and he was confused byothers around him weren't as excited as he is...

...what a sociopath, oh, my God it. This is so scary, thike.This guy, like is delighted by this level of upheaval and violence, actswith evil waving. His name around adhe became our dictator on January. Sixth,we all would have been around it up and killed. There's like no there's like nodoubt in my mind that anybody who does any sort of a liberal, leaning, podcastor radio, show or has an opinion or a blog or is a tweeter or they would havebeen rent. We would have been rounded up. I really feel like we got lucky likethat's really how bad it could have gotten yeah. I Yeah I was at work on the sixth and I happen to be at lunch, and I got acall from my mom who was worried about me. You know here in in Denver. Just you know just worried that this sort of civil violence was goingto break out at our state capital and basically that the whole thing was wasfalling apart. All of a sudden- and you know for a minute there, you know nobody knew that that wasn't the caselike it definitely felt like it. We were, we were on a nice edge there and it yeah what a Ar wort. What is sheshocking? Yeah we're not Hainto, not we Haveanno auguration yeah coming up andye what happened on the sixt. What was supposed to happen on the sixth wasjust one of those formalities. You know itwas like a rubber stanticasion yeah and it it roast f this bebble ofviolence. You know I expected to after the election. I thought that wewere going to see something like this in November I mean, I didn't, imagine amob storming the capital in DC, but youknow I figured like a wave of right wing protests across the country thatkind of thing and then, when it didn't happen in November ind December, youknow I kind of started to breathe. You know, like theElectoral College got through it, I'm like, okay, whatever I was afraid, wasgoing to happen. I guess its not going to happen, and you know I saw trumpmaking these sweets about the the sixth and I'm like. I, I don't think they'regoing to come out. I'M WI! Let myself believe that because I'm like theydidn't come out after the election they didn't come out to. You know terrorized the ElectoralCollege vote this thing's already a done deal they're just reading thevotes now in Congress, but it's not. It's an open secret, a there's, noquestion how how the vote went. You know yeah, but the thing withJanuary six was both house and Senate were all seated yeah and it's very rare. Where O youhave. You know Mike Pants and Polosi andleaders of Congress all in the same building at the same time, yeah wasn't that, like a that was'tthat, like a major national security issue, to have even I mean threu trump,but he was like blocks away and then you have all the other high rankingpeople just in the same city as it seems to Beresponsible ot oftimes. You know it only happens on rare occasions. You know, okay into theUnion is the primary one that I know of IMEAN.augurations right, you know, which is coming up. FBI has already issuedwarnings to all fifty states that there may be some unrested statecapitals even days before the the twentieth,including the Twentie and yeah January nineteenth, is one of thedates. That'sbeen floated around to the APAOM parlor that conservative social media networkthat has been pulled from appstores and their servincs by the way. But you know these people are still findingways to get the message out and and network socially. So yeah I mean andlike I would you know this happened, but it's not over, like these peopleare still active like what it's a very worri some time right now, so witheverything being so fragile. Do you think that the houmade the right moveto move forward with articles of...

...impeachment they're going to voteWednesday, toimpeach Donald Trump for inciting the deadlyinsdurrection of theUS capital, which my God is like the scariest, FUC difvering degree sentenceto say I know right. It's fucking! Never in my life until trump came to power, and I think I don't even know if I thought he was.If Yeah I don't know I just here in America- yeah please go on justyou know your right sentence. You are right to highlight that, because thisis the most serious accusation charge levied against a seris sitting,president of the United States. Ever this guy attacked his own country how, as he still sitting in officetoday, I don't care that only has like a few days left an office get thatmother fucker out, because the Republican Party is cowardly and broken,and that's why we have to be scared of more violence to come, because you know, I think, a lot more people inthis country are secretly. You know thrilled that this happened. I thinkthat you know that this is a significant minority of people who who are on board, and I think that theRub Republican Party represents these people yeah. I think that you're right sothey're giving Mike Pence until Wednesday to initiate the twenty FifthAmendment Procedures. Otherwise we're going to move forward with thisimpeachment vote, and it's likely that my pants won't move forward to thetwenty fith, because of what you just said is because of the Republicans areafraid of this trump base mike pens himself. His life is being threatenedwith people. Chanting Hang Mike Pence as they were going through the actually here's, the audio of it to play this as they were, breaching thecapital People Yelling Hang Mike Pa. So you think my pense is going to wantto initiate the twentyfifth amendment. I think the guy is afraid for his life. If you want to do such a thing, hewould be a target, the rest of his life and a he already is going to be, but hebeat even bigger one. It's just an insane situation and youknow what screw the Republicans and Screwbich McConnell for enabling thispsychopath over the past four or five years because they wanted to. They were being just fucking,shortsighted and looking out for their own personal interest and and they sawthat this fucker was able to activate a t, the the biggest scum of America, buthe got people really passionate, which is something that the Republicanshaven't seen in a long time, so they fucking just lashed onto that. Likelittle leaches I mean he tedy, he went for you, knowhepused hate and divio device of rhetoric. Like I mean that's, how Hiller did it? You know yeah, I os'mobit. This is a PLA. This s a textbook like this is how it happens. We'reprobablrepublicans knew this back in two thousand and sixteen and they were,they didn't stand up against them like they knew what this man was, and theylet him become the nominee and let him become president. This is a unlawful armed militia that has pledged loyaltynot to our country but to a man, donald trump and are willing to kill in his name onhis behalf and take orders for him. That is exactly what the Brown shirtsdid for Hitler in Germany when he was rising to power. I you know back inhigh school, I always was. I always wondered like how did Hiller begettinto power like how did that happen? Yeah, you know how did the Holocaust happened like I couldn'tunderstand it and now we're seeing it our own country? U, that is terrifyingon a couple of the forums, apparently, some members have taken to referring totrump as Godis or God, Emperor of the United States. This is from theWashington Post, but these senators to that supported this insurrection needto be hold accountable, Ted crews, Josh...

...howly and the others, and in fact AOCtweeted quote Senator Cruis. You must accept responsibility for how yourcraven self serving actions contributed to the deaths of four people. Yesterdaynow five and how you fund raised off this riot, follow US news to us on twitter, we'realways tweeting and our twitter follower account has just like I meanyou can follow us if you want. I hate it. When people tell you to follow themon twitter, it's really annoying, but we do. I think we have goodconversations with our twitter audience and we like comment on everybody's stuffand we post a lot of things that people are interested in. So if you've, ifyou'v like the show, maybe you might want to follow us on twitter. If notthat point to, I don't realy got a shit, real, quick, yes, real, quick! We wantto get to the next story, but I just saw breaking news that a democraticcongresswoman has tested positive for covid. After being an isolation withRepublicans that Weren' refused to wear a mass during the whilethey were locked down during the riots and yeah that news came out thismorning. That's right: Yeah, Relly, yeah, wow, yeah fucks, but the season of treasoncontinues on the season Razi. This was just a huge, huge, hugestory that got swept under the rug. Well, I'm not going to say swept of theRugdi up, Barry by even bigger story, somehow, but donald trump in a recordedphone call that was leat to the Washington Post. He was trying tothreaten and be Rayd Georgea Secretary of State Brad Ratensburger, repeatingfalse claims about voter fraud during the thousand and twenty presidentialelection and asking that Republican official to overturn the electionresults in Georgia. This is insane Leh. He say these things out loud andyou have to like stop yourself and that I just say that a loud did. The sitting.President F, the United States, try to intimidate an election official in astate and try to get that official to change official votes to favor himself. Chupis so stupid because the electoral college had already cast its voatanyway or we an he needed more than Georgia and he's and he's focusing on Georgia.So president, like show Biin One Georgia by eleven thousand sevenhundred and seventy nine votes and, of course, there's been a lot of accusation: An court over from fromdonal trump fo Giliani, false accusations, a photo fraud every timethat they eve, recounted the votes and then three times with the this withGeorgia and each time it is reaffirmed that Jo bide one by eleven thousandseven hundred and seventy nine folks three times they recounted, isn't thatmore the recounted in Florida for Gore and and Bush three times so yeah. So this is kind of similar t atrump calling up an official and trying to intimidate over an election. Youguys remember why he was Impeachd last year at this time for calling thenewlelected president of Ukraine and trying to use his powers to intimidatehim, because he wanted an an investigation into Joe Biden. It's likethe same if thensit's the same sort of abuseive power, but this time it's muchworse because he's trying to undermine a D, a democracy, the Americandemocracy, our democracy. He is this is just so God damn bad. What happenedhere and he should be impeached for this too and brought to charges. Ithink that they are using that as evidence are they yeah an the the article ofimpeachment that they drafted today? Well, here's a bit ofthat audio of the phone call it's like an hour long and if you want you canlike go listen to the entire tape, but Ihave not done that and I really don't want to, because I can't fucking standoll trump. His voice just is grading to me. Idon't know I can't sit through that entire call, but here he is on theCallisyo, not reporting. I hat'syou. KNOWTHATS is trump again talking to theGeorgia election official and trying to get him to to commit fraud. You knowwhat they did and you're not reporting it. That's I you know that's a criminal,that's aciial, Feyou can't letthataper! That's that's a big risk to you andDerian. So what what trump is saying here he's claiming, falsely that therewas fraud in the election and that this election official knew about it andthat since he knows about it and he's not doing anything about it, that's bad! But it's like it's just a web of liesand spin. Your lawyer, that's a big...

...rick, but they are reating BALLANC. Inmy opinion, based on what I've heard, andthey are removing maiery and the moving in as vant as they canboth of Wich your criminal Mindat. Both of that that's all false at that hasn'thappened a you can't let it happen and you ware letting it happen. You know Imean I'm notifying you that you're letting it happen, I'm notifying youthat you're letting it happen not happening ll I want to do I I just want to fid eleven thousand seven hundred ight lots,which is one more that we have because we want to say they want onemore vote than bi in to be van. Just one more. Why g? Why not like shoot fora couple thousand more because it was just one more is because I trickerother recount right that, as also he's such a dumb criminal yeah, he is eleven thosand, seven Huden maylots one moll. I watch lot one ro Carl Bernstein, of course, fromWatergate. He said quote on twitter. Not only is pressuring electionofficials against the law O threatening Raffensburger if he didn't comply withtrumps wishes borders on extortion, undermind the eloctoral system andillegally improperly, an a morally try to invent instigate a cou in which heremains president of the United States, and then we saw you know this didn'twork for him, so things escalated with January. Sixth, this is January six,only a few days after this crazy, so Georgia State University Law,Professor Anthony Michael Chris, told trump he may have or said rather trumpmay have violated state in federal laws against soliciting election fraud. He said quote: If any other person didthis someone else with power to leverage over an election official.There is no doubt in my mind that at the very least, a criminalinvestigation would be opene to right away. That's what Chris said: Another added to the pile anotheranother high crime and Misdemeanor Djts are walking high crime andmissdemeanor Senator Senate Damic Democratic leader,Chuck schoomer that now the leader of the Senate, Senta majority leader, saidon twitter is heishe officially, yet no not officially ye soon to be individual.We, the new Congressen, can be sworn in right. He said on twitter if cruise andquote his gang cruises part of this to I'll, wanted to investigate electionfraud, they should start with trumps called a ratensburger, so yeah at's pretty bad any thoughts on this.It just got swept onto the rug. It's like a huge huge story, and if theinsurrection on the capital didn't happen, I guaranteed probably that wewould have been like an entire hour on this, but it's crazy that we have to like.Really. This is like he, the the story of COMS presidency. He does somethingincrementally B worse every single day to the point where you can't keep upwith what the fuck I's doing. You know at this point I wish he wouldjust show up and go play golf. They don't have golf in prison. Do they well for the next, like you know, justgo play golf! Stop Stop talking to people, although I mean we can't hearfrom him anymore right. He they refuse to have a press conference at the WhiteHouse now and is twitter privileges in facebook, privileges that been prevokelike what does he? What does he do now? What do you think he's doing? The newcycle has been quieter, because I was actually thinking about about that. Assoon as trump was banned from twitter, I thought wow. This is going to slowdown the NEWCYCLE, because every other new story was drump tweeted. This trumptoneeded that and now like it's now we're actually getting some realnews about the investigation of the of the capital riots with thosedomestic terrorists and we're finding out about who's being arrested andstuff. We're not having the noise from the president's sweets. Idon't even know can we call him ryatsor it was the feed right like the insurrection of the capital,domestic therrists they're, not demonstratiug, as the Terroris IEET,all of the above yeah, that's fair. I just, I don't think we've collectively as asociety settled on a name for what just happened. I think we do have to stopusing demonstrators and protesters ow yeah. They were none of those. Thesewere violent acts by a terrorist domestic terrorist organization,whether these people knew or not that...

...they were participating, wilfully indomestic terrorism. They were domestic terrorists, they got indoctrinated. We it'sadangerous time, like everyone needs to be paying attentionright now, we'll be right. Back: Okay, O R, firstshow of two thousnd and twenty one, not a doll on a lot happening.

If there's like a guest that either of you would really want to setour sites on for two thousand and twenty one, I wonder if we can get toit by the end of the year, because we've had a lot of big guests that Ididn't think we'd ever get.

IUL Like to talk toow, Frankin othese are all our guestscoming up this year. Just wait. o stay tuned, sneak POW hat be quite ayear I'll play this clip back at the end of the year and then we'll see whowe actually got lit yeah. We got John Legazamo and Tanny to be the little brother who elseI would like yeah John Stewart. I would like to hear likehis perspective, of all of this, that again anbefore we close out for the weekpower ball is up to five hundred and fifty five million dollars dit. Youguys know that BAA millions is that six hundred million o you guys ever playthe lottery, want to get to lea big. No, once in a blue moon like when it getsreally big, I think I've only bought a lottery ticket. Like three times of myentire life Sayme, I think you know I don't know that I've everactually bought a ticket myself. But, like I remember when I was a kid, it gotreally big a couple times and my mom bought one olike each of us orsomething this new story mentions that in two thousand and sixteen it was onepoint: five billion an two THOUSANDA. Eighteen is one point: six billion. Ido remember buying tickets for both those times wat billion. If you win, I hope you, ifeither of you when I hope you share with me. Of course, if I won fivehundred million dollars, I would give each of you at least two or threemillion. Why Not Wow? That's very generous thanks. Idon't think that's generous enough. I I don't Atalk to my lawyer, two hundred million two hundredion. You want a billion dollars, what it wasit: a billion, no o five hundred D, fifty millionits, okay ful. If you out yeah, O you'reonly going to make like only two hundred million, which is like so pooryeah, it's pathetic you're only going to give us two billion come on now:Okay, Tennech Ter, you ofifen, twenty! I don't give afuck. I got two hundred million actually when you put that in the bankand if it comes back at a seven percent return every year like why not give your friends andfamily each like ten to twenty million dollars each who cares at have thatmuch in the bank, so you wouldnt Occru that enough interest yeah. But if I hadlike...

...still at the end of the day, a hundredmillion dollars in the bank, I'm making seven million dollars a year doingnothing. So I think I could afford to give a hundred million dollars tocharity and Frence. So I divvy hundred million dollars up between everybody.Yeah! That's fair! That's a good tats! Nice Yeah! I would do that and then even then, I'd have way moremoney than I would need like what Didn Thato with it probably still give halfof that to charity later on yeah. Before we wrap up the show, I I hope you got if you haven't heard yet,but the PGA has announced that they are pulling one of their golf tournamentsout of trump properties, so Mao we're starting to see corporations andbusinesses move away from the djt in the right wing nuts.
