Speaker 1:

Hello, my friends. And welcome back to yet. Another episode of watching the Watchers live. My name is Robert ruler . I am a criminal defense attorney here at the RNR law group in the always beautiful and sunny Scottsdale Arizona, where my team and I over the course of many years have represented thousands of good people facing criminal charges. And throughout our time in practice, we have seen a lot of problems with our justice system. I'm talking about misconduct involving the police. We have prosecutors behaving poorly. We have judges not particularly interested in a little thing called justice, and it all starts with the politicians, the people at the top, the ones who write the rules and pass the laws that they expect you and me to follow, but sometimes have a little bit of difficulty doing so themselves. That's why we started this show called watching the Watchers so that with your help, we can shine that big, beautiful spotlight of accountability and transparency down upon our system with a hope of finding justice. And we're grateful that you are here and with us today, working with us as we're bumbling through some of our technical difficulties, I'll explain what's going on here in a minute. But before I do, let me give you a , an explanation about what we're talking about today, because there's a lot of goodness that we have to get into. We're going to start the show by talking about this vaccine, hesitancy this Biden administration effort to really go out there and try to encourage a bunch of Americans to go, you know , go get vaccinated. They've been saying that the numbers aren't really where they want them to be. And so they've got a lot of people out there sort of wrapping their arms around this problem to try to get people vaccinated. And so we're going to talk about what's going on here because last week on Friday, Jen Sakhi over there at the white house, along with president by , and they kind of were scapegoating Facebook saying, Hey, you know, we've got to get on these social media companies for really putting out a lot of , uh, dangerous information, harmful information. And so we're kind of putting the, the , the needle, right. And Facebook's back. And then Joe Biden came out today, sort of walked that back a little bit. So we're going to hear from foxes , uh , uh, Peter Doocy was asking Jen Saki a little bit about what the white house strategy is going to be. And so we're going to hear from the white house about what they're going to do. Donald Trump also came out over the weekend and released a press release that is kind of needling the Biden administration. And so we're going to go through some of the MIS management, some of the MIS I would say the improper messaging, the MIS messaging coming out of the Biden administration. So we're going to talk a lot about that. And then we're going to change gears and talk about what's going on with Edward Snowden. He posted over the weekend, a tweet that is linking over to the guardian. The guardian came out and they are telling us that this NSO group, this Israeli cybersecurity group is now working with all of these different countries in these different militaries and organizations that essentially they're , they're selling spy tools to these different countries. And these spy tools were being used to go and monitor world leaders and humanitarian people and , and other whistleblowers. And so very, very scandalous stories breaking out right in front of us. And then lastly, we're going to talk about what came out of the NSA today. SISA today, the cyber intelligence security administration and the FBI. They are all coming out here and confirming that China is responsible for a lot of the hacks and a lot of these cybersecurity problems that the United States has been having for some time. So we're going to take a look at a new press release that came out from all of our intelligence agencies. We're also going to look at a leaked video that came out from the CCP, from the Chinese communist party. It's a , it's a military video where they're talking about nuking Japan. And I don't mean like, like a deterrence type of a nuke . It's like, if you think about even offending us slightly, if you don't hold the door open for us, we're going to nuke you into the stone age. We are going to nuke you until we were out of nukes. And I was watching this video this weekend and I was thinking, wow, this is a okay, that's one way to approach international diplomacy. So we're going to talk about that here and more. If you want to be a part of the show, the way to do that is to head on over to watching the watchers.locals.com, where everybody is in there, chatting away. We've got love. OCA is over there. We've got Joe , Joe Snow . We've got farmer's daughter number four. And we have a want to know, is there along with eat on tests over on YouTube, we've got Stace , the case we've got Patriot capital tourists. We've got ripped her , the destroyer and fill up and some others are over there as well. And so I've got, you can see here, I've got multiple screens now where I can see a couple different chats going at the same time. And because what I did is I am in the same location where I was broadcasting previously, but what happened was I just moved all of my equipment, sort of, I reversed it. So if you recall, or remember the old setup we had all the screens back there, sort of four screens. And it sort of looked like I was in a spaceship a little bit. That was all tucked away right there in that corner. And you can see some of the damage that I did this weekend when I was ripping off the , uh, the , the spaceship , uh, plywood, whatever those plastic things were. I pulled those off the wall and in doing so ripped out all of the, the front of the drywall off there. So it's just a little bit of , you know , the paper that comes off there. So what I'm going to do of course is , uh , is make that background look a lot better. So you don't have to look at this semi constructed , uh, looks like , uh , are law firms falling apart, but I assure you, it's not, it's brand new. It's great. But , uh , what I'm doing here of course is a tinkering because that's what I do. I didn't , I never really get satisfied with anything. So what I want to do is continue to sort of, you know , modify my recording studio. And I want to show you this additional thing that I've been working on. It's a little extra feature. So now I've got a second camera angle. So for those of you in content creation, I think everybody really should, should think about, you know , getting your voice out there one way or the other, whether it's writing or making videos. But what I did is I recall I had all those screens behind me and my , my thought process was when I'm creating my videos and we're doing these live streams, I would be able to broadcast one direction and then turn around and use the screens. And then I would kind of create this workflow. That would be very productive for me. It didn't actually work out that way. So I reversed all the screens. I just flipped the desk around. Now. I've got all those screens here, which means when I'm live streaming, I can see a bunch more stuff, which is just super cool, but it also means that I've got to fix the background and I've got to , uh, you know, figure out what I'm doing because I tried to use a different stream software. And obviously that's why I'm late today. So I'm not going to do that tomorrow, but I am learning and we're going to continually improve one of the cool things that we've got going on here. Somebody said over there is duck said a B camera. That's right, Zach, you're on it. So , uh , I've got camera number two. Now I'm going to warn you. This is not a good camera angle because this is not set up appropriately, but I've got camera two . So I can say camera one. And if I flubbed something in the middle of my recording, then rather than doing one of those bizarre jump cuts where you kinda zoom in on the face and zoom out on the face, you know , all those really kind of things that YouTube has do. I can just cut over to camera two . I can just go camera one, camera two, which pops me over here. Now you'll notice that it's pretty bad, right? I've got a light right there, along with my beverages over here. And so it's not really ideal, but when I'm recording, then I can just sort of flip over here and just transition. And then of course I can just boom, transition right back. And then I will be in camera one again. And so I can switch between a number of different things and I can also show you what's what's on my screen a little bit. And so, yes, I know we've got the white balances off. Everybody knows , uh, that, that I am so bad with colors. And so I'm going to be working on those, but we are playing around with some stuff. We're going to have some fun with it, but that's, what's going on. That's why everything is a little bit messy back there. I'm going to get it fixed. Thank you for your understanding on all of that, but enough of the background let's get into the news of the day before we do quick reminder, if you want to be a part of the show it's [email protected] Of course, this is the forum that you can use. If you want to ask a question. And another reminder that the super chats are also now available. Uh , but I don't think that I have them integrated into my stream. So if you want to ask those, I don't think that I can actually see them on the screen, but I certainly can read them , uh , if you submit them. So either way, whatever you want to do. Yeah. So , uh , Jenny B says enough with it, get on already, which I intend to do right now. So thank you for indulging me on all of that. Let's get into the news of the day. Vaccine hesitancy is the new term that we're hearing a lot from the white house. Everybody's hesitant about it. We just don't know what to do. What's going on. I'm so confused. Help me, somebody answer my questions. I need more information, or it might be that maybe the information that people are getting is not really satisfying them. And so , uh , maybe the white house is going to get out there and help solve this for us and get us to the numbers that they claim we need to be at. And so this conversation has been happening all weekend, Ben , between the white house and many other people sort of battling back and forth about where the problem is. Remember that Joe Biden came out and set some pretty hard terms that he wanted to hit. When his administration came in, he said, we want, you know, a certain number of vaccines being given every single day. We want to get a certain number of people vaccinated by July 4th, on and on and on. They had all these targets, well, they're falling behind on the targets. And so now that we're going to start to see some finger pointing, going around multi different directions. And of course that started to happen last week when we were off the show, they , they didn't even, you know, they , they came out and we were already broadcasting, but they were saying some pretty interesting things over towards Facebook. And they were trying to escape goat certain people and say, this is the reason why this isn't working out for us. And you'll notice this that, well, let's get, let's take a headline over here from the daily mail. Biden's surgeon general defends the CDCs easing of the mask rules, blame social media. Okay. That's the problem right there. Blame social media for COVID misinformation saying it's costing people their lives and slams Facebook for not doing enough to combat it. Okay. So Facebook is the problem. It's not anything else. It's Facebook. We want Facebook to get out there and start fixing things. So we have the surgeon general, he's doubling down. We're going to talk through most of this, but the big part where the big area where I wanted to start a course was some of the clips that we heard last week. These were pretty provocative clips because we have a couple of things happening here. Number one, the white house, blaming Facebook for, you know , allowing misinformation to percolate. But then really the bigger concern is what are the consequences of that? What happens? What are we supposed to do naturally as a society? If Facebook is responsible for all of these deaths, let's say that we take the premise from the white house saying that they are responsible for more deaths. What are we supposed to do about that then? Does that mean that we, we have to sort of, you know , start limiting speech? Of course, that's what it means, because we want to not kill people. We want people to survive and stay alive. And so if Facebook is allowing the proliferation of dangerous and harmful information, somebody has to do something about that. Guess who's in charge. Oh, the white house is so maybe they've got a solution for us. So I've got two clips for you. We want to start off with here is Jen Saki . This was last week on Friday. And she was in the white house talking about information and largely the idea that information is killing people, that this is going to be responsible for actual deaths in our society. So let's listen in and see what Jen has to say, oh, hold on one second. Let me swap the sound over. As I mentioned, my , uh, everything is a little bit off here today. So let's do that again.

Speaker 2:

We're not in a war or a battle with Facebook, we're in a battle with the virus. And the problem we're seeing that our surgeon general elevated just last week is that disinformation traveling through a range of mediums. Uh, some of them are a range of social media platforms. Some of them are media. Some of them are through the mouse of public officials , uh, that bad information, inaccurate information about vaccines is killing people.

Speaker 1:

Whoa, whoa, that information is killing people. It's almost like Facebook is sort of the middleman. You know, somebody is posting information on their platform and they're allowing it to happen. They're not moderating that content. They're not acting like a publisher. They're not censoring enough information. And so that's resulting in people actually dying. I mean , a face information killing people is what she said. So , uh, so there you go, Zuckerberg, and you know, I guess, I guess you're a murderer now. Let's see if , uh, if that wasn't quite clear enough for you, let's listen to Joe Biden, Joe Biden on the way out to the helicopter out by the white house, came out and stopped in front of the press and the press came out and they asked him a very simple question. You know, Jen Saki was just in there in the white house and she said something to the effect like social media is killing people. What do you have to say about that there, Joe, and watch Joe Biden. You know, it actually makes me kind of sad to watch this, but his, his, he has a really difficult time even sputtering out these sentences. Tell me if you see it. You know, it reminds me of the scene. So for remembering the scene in the matrix, when Neo is speaking with agent Smith and he says, I want a phone call. I know I have a right to a lawyer. Give me my phone call. And agent Smith says something like, how are you going to call your lawyer? If you're unable to speak, Neo goes, what are you talking about? And then the thing kind of comes over his Malibu and he can't spit around any words because he's, he's all blocked because he's got the , uh, the matrix face mask on. So that happened. And now , uh , Joe Biden kind of looks like that. It's either that he's got the matrix face mask or he got his marbles in his mouth. I don't know what it is, but he has a very difficult time sputtering this out. Let's see if you can see it along with me here he is Joe Biden, our president. What's your message to platforms like Facebook.

Speaker 3:

The only pandemic we have is the one I'm vaccinated . I'm not killing people.

Speaker 1:

Yikes. Okay. They're killing people. You know, they're the only, the new talking point is the only pandemic we have is among vaccinated. So he's got like two things and he can spit her out there. And he's just really having a difficult time. So not , not too good. But then he came out today and he's sort of walking that back. So I'm not going to go through this, but Facebook came out and they said, whoa, did you just call us a bunch of murderers? In fact, here over at Facebook, we had been peddling as much COVID banners and, and you know , buttons and profile things. And we're reminding you about a hundred times a day. Every time you're on our platform, you sure you didn't get vaccinated. If they could shove a needle through the phone, into your forehead at Facebook, they would do that. But you know, the fact that Joe Biden came out and his administration, you're saying that they are kind of a part of the problem is kind of lunacy because every time you go on there on any one of their platforms, it's like, you know, COVID mania nonstop . So they were unhappy about that. They've been saying, listen, Zuckerberg has, was actually emailing Dr. Fowchee early on in the pandemic saying, what can we do? Let me know, let me know how we can help. We're going to put the banners and everything everywhere. So obviously they're a little bit upset about it. So they posted this big, long thing. I'm not going to go through it cause it's, you know, Facebook, propaganda, but here is Joe Biden. Of course, walking that back a little bit today, here he is. Let's get this clip rolled. There it is Facebook.

Speaker 3:

Isn't killing people. These 12 people are out there giving misinformation. Anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it is killing people. It's killing is bad information. My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally , somehow I'm saying Facebook is tell me people that they would do something about the misinformation, the outrageous infamous misinformation about vaccine . That's what I meant.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. So you do something about the information, right? W w w what can they possibly do , uh , delete it, right? So it's , it's calls for censorship. And, you know, this was a big problem of course, on Friday, because what we're hearing is the white house, essentially, you know, kind of mandating over to Facebook, that you are responsible for the deaths of Americans. If you're a business owner, I don't care. It , you know, Facebook is, is as big as Facebook is. And we all know who really kind of is in charge of a lot of these issues. I really don't think that Zuckerberg is too paranoid, that he's going to be charged with murder, but on a philosophical level, right? If you're mark Zuckerberg and you built this massive multi national organization, and you have the president of the United States coming out and implying that you're facilitating, you're sort of the mediator for a bunch of deaths, even though you have spent over backwards over the last 18 months to make your platforms almost unusable with your COVID nonsense. And now to sort of, you know , we're seeing thanks for nothing, really from the byte administration . So now he's walking that back a little bit, that the big concern I have with this is the federal government coming on to any business. And essentially saying, you know, you're responsible for committing crimes or facilitating the commission of crimes, or you're responsible for deaths in this country. What happens when that happens? You bring the justice department down on any entity like that, and you bring the hammer of the government, the U S government to come down and crack the skulls of these places. So that is , uh , you know, peacefully. I mean, legally what's, what's happening. There is you have the federal government weighing down heavily upon a company. And I don't think that's appropriate in any which way. I also don't think that censorship is appropriate in any which way, even if the information is, let's say less than accurate, okay . People are supposed to make up their own minds. When we create this little bubble wrap society where everything that happens is supposed to be sort of vetted by somebody else. Every time you step foot and cross the street, we got to check with your regulator to make sure that no traffic's coming down the road that's that's nonsense, right? People in my opinion should be taking more personal responsibility for information. I think that a lot of the bad information would be weeded out. If people were a little bit more used to having to think for themselves when we eliminate the need for people to think for themselves, because we promised them that the government's going to do it. We have buildings falling over, oh, it's regulated right now . We have regulations. We have permits, they got permitted and we get inspections every 40 years. Guess what happens? Building's gone right. A hundred people dead. So when we are demanding or sort of requiring that people don't have to think anymore because the government's going to take care of it. That becomes a problem. Now, here is a gen Saki . Now, so the white house is dealing with this. They're trying to point their fingers. They're trying to point their fingers. What is happening? Why are, why are so many Americans refusing to get vaccinated? And Doocy over here from news has a suggestion. He is in the press briefing room with Jen Saki today and says, listen, Jen, come on. How about this? Joe Biden wants people to get vaccinated. Donald Trump has been sort of, you know, more or less okay with the vaccine , uh , was very excited about warp speed and all that stuff. What do you think? Could we get Joe Biden and Donald Trump together and get those two to powwow and just encourage American people to, you know, get vaccinated? Here's, here's that question? Uh,

Speaker 2:

I'm vaccine hesitancy as COVID-19 cases rise. If this is becoming a pandemic, we'll be unvaccinated and you guys are having a hard time getting a certain part of the population to go get the shot would president by number, call former president Trump and say, I need your help. Let's cut up PSA and tell people to go do it. Well, first, I would say that , uh, what we've seen in our data is that the most trusted voices are local officials, doctors, medical experts, civic leaders, clergy from time to time. Uh, and that is where we've really invested our funding and our resources. We've seen almost every former president play a role in putting out a PSA , uh, making sure people understood in the country that the vaccine is safe and effective. We don't believe that requires an embroidered invitation to be a part of , uh, but certainly any role of anyone who has a platform where they can , uh, provide information to the public, that the vaccine is safe. It is effective. We don't see this as a political issue. Uh, we'd certainly welcome that , uh , engagement.

Speaker 1:

Uh , uh, we, we don't see this as a political issue. We welcome that engagement. We want all the help in the world. If Trump wants to help, Trump can come help. Okay? All the other presidents have gotten their act together, but Donald Trump has it . So if you will you go ask him why doesn't he make a PSA and he can get out there and speak for himself there . Doocy . And she says, by the way, in this white house, we don't have to extend embroidered invitations to other former presidents. We don't give out invitations. Okay. If you want to do your civic duty, you can go ahead and do it, but don't expect us to come crawling and begging and promoting you to sell the vaccine. We would never do that, except when they did it right here, when they were trying to recruit Olivia Rodrigo to try and help them convince young Americans that the COVID-19 vaccine is good for them. Right? So this is from PBS news hour, Jen sack . I don't know if this was like, during the same press briefing. It might've been the same exact one. Uh , Nope . That she's at a red over here and she's in green over here. So it's a different one. But this was posted earlier today, says the Biden administration has recruited this woman, whoever this is young gal, 18 year old pop star to convince young people that the vaccination rates need to go up. Right? Olivia Rodrigo is going to lend a hand. So Jen Saki is out there. We don't extend embroidered invitations to anybody. Okay. Donald Trump can go out there and do whatever Donald Trump wants to do. Uh, unless you're an 18 year old pop star, we want to go sell the vaccine to a bunch of kids. Then we're going to go ahead and go out and go hog wild. So , uh , the white house, little inconsistencies there, but what else can you expect? Donald Trump was out and of course responded to all of this and Byron York over there posted this said, Hey, in a new statement, Trump attributes, vaccine hesitancy to Americans, not trusting Biden, which is the mirror image of what Biden and Harris said during the campaign that Americans would hesitate to trade , take the , take the vaccine because they did not trust Trump. And so, you know, you started, you've been, you've been sort of seeing this from , uh , from all angles over the weekend. If you were on Twitter or elsewhere, a lot of people saying Donald Trump should be doing more. And Donald Trump comes out and says, well, you know , uh , let me, let me throw that right back your direction. He posts this on July 18th, which was on Sunday, said Joe Biden. This is the statement from him, said, Joe Biden kept talking about how good of a job he's been doing on the distribution of the vaccine that was developed by operation warp speed, or quite simply the Trump administration not doing very well at all. He's way behind schedule. People are refusing to take the vaccine because they don't trust his administration. They don't trust the election results. And they certainly don't trust the fake news, which is refusing to tell the truth. So, right. So , uh , of course, you know, we have to disavow any , uh, election contestations that election's over. And so it just, just for YouTube, we got to make sure that we were clear about that. But what Donald Trump is staying , you know, purposefully here is that people don't trust the Biden administration. This is the big crux of this thing. And , uh, you know, everybody's out there saying, well, maybe Donald Trump should be helping a little bit. Maybe if he would get off of his rear and get out there and start speaking on behalf for this things would get better. Trump is saying, listen, I'm just doing the same thing that you were doing back during pre-election before you had one you're out there saying a lot of the same things that many people today are saying, having a lot of questions about the vaccine and listen, you know , I am basically, I don't know what the right, what the , what the phrase is, but I don't really particularly care either way. Right? If you want to go get vaccinated, talk to your doctor, get vaccinated. If you don't don't right. It's a personal decision. As far as I'm concerned, I don't really have a strong opinion on it either way, other than the fact that I don't like it when it becomes mandatory. I don't like when anything from the government becomes mandatory, especially when it involves just putting something in your body, but the rest of the conversation out there, right? I think it's a medical conversation that people should be having with their doctors, making the decisions based on their own internal analysis, based on their risk factors. And that's the rest of it. Right. And I really would like politics to be out of it. I really would like it to be more about science that we keep hearing. Everybody's very , very interested in, but, but kind of turns out, not really. So let's go and do a quick trip down memory lane and see what happened pre okay. Everything changes is as soon as one party wins political power, but what happens when they're not in power? What happens when Donald Trump is racing to get a vaccine in play? And , uh , somehow it just comes out right after the election, right? Can't have good news. Let's say in , in September, October of an election year, but right after that, it becomes available. In fact, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were vaccinated before the end of 2020. We're going to go through that. But once again, Trump says, people don't trust this administration. Why might that be? Here's a super cut that came out over the, so

Speaker 3:

Let's just say there's a vaccine that is approved and even distributed before the election.

Speaker 2:

Would you get it? Well,

Speaker 3:

I think that's going to be an issue for all of us, if, and when the vaccine comes and it's not likely to go through all the tests that needs to be, and the trials that are needed to be done. When we finally do God willing get a vaccine, who's going to take the shot. Who's going to take the shot. You can be the first one to say, put me, sign me up . They now say it's okay. And the question of whether it's real, when it's there, that requires enormous transparency. You got to make all of it available to other experts across the nation so they can look and see. So there's consensus. This is a safe vaccine is the president ops tomorrow we have a vaccine. Would you take it only if it was completely transparent, but other experts in the country could look at it only if we knew all of what went into it. If Donald Trump can't give answers and administration can't give answers to these three questions, the American people should not have confidence. But if Donald Trump tells us, I should say that we've taken, I'm not taking it.

Speaker 1:

All right. Well, there you go. Right? So, you know, they politicized it and now they're coming out and they're saying, Trump's politicizing it. And now the whole thing has become political because it is a political football. That's what this whole thing is about. It's become, you know , it's become very politicized, which is very unfortunate. And the big reason that I've had, you know , a lot of, I would say issues with the Biden administration was because their messaging has been quite bad. And I want to just kind of run through the timeline, recall this, that back in December 21st, 2020 here's Joe Biden, getting a vaccine on live television. This was right , uh , posted by Kate Sullivan over at CNN. You can see the date here, 1221, 2020 the year wasn't even over yet. So Joe Biden had just won all of that prior language that he was sputtering out during the election season about, well, I'm not real sure. Apparently he went and got it right away, right on December 21st, he goes and gets it. And he's got his two masks on you'll notice that we've got, we've got a black mask over here and there's a white one. That's right underneath it. So , uh, so I want to pay close attention to this, right? Because the reason that many people would get a vaccine is because it's going to give them a benefit. And one of the presumed benefits of course, is that you don't catch COVID and that you don't have to wear masks anymore. And that you can go and sort of socialize. You can go to restaurants and bars and enjoy your life. Again, go roam free because you got the vaccine. This is how incentives work. If you want people to do something, you got to incentivize it. And so here's Joe Biden, right? Pre mask, I'm sorry, pre COVID vaccine. He's just getting it. And he's wearing two masks. This is on December 21st, 2020. So you would imagine that if you're the leader of the free world, that you would want to communicate to the world, that your behavior is going to change, because you just took something that is going to enable. You just took the vaccine. So your behavior is going to change. You should get the vaccine. So you can be like me, right? That's what a leader does you walk the walk, not just talk the talk and people want to get back to their normal lives. Rebecca , back in December, we were all beyond tired of this. We were all even beyond, beyond tired of this now, but we were, we were extremely tired back then. And Joe Biden was first, but Kamala Harris was number two. So here she is receiving her first dose of Moderna. And this was a couple about a week later, December 29th, 2020 here, once again, posted by Kate Silva called Sullivan. So she's just got vaccine shot duty. And so again, both of these people in December got the vaccine, Madonna and Madonna , I think it is for both of them. So we go, okay, great. So they got the vaccine and now things are going to change and they're going to start being leaders. And we're going to start seeing, I guess, our returned to form because the vaccine obviously works because all of the medical scientists have said it because our government officially endorses it and so on. And so now , uh, everything would get better, right? Wrong. Nope. Joe Biden over here on the white house, February 18th, 2021. So almost two months after a full two months after he gets the vaccine, he's a meeting with labor leaders in the oval office. Okay. He's not in a mall. He's not at a bar. He's not at a restaurant. He's in the oval stinking office, the most secure building on the entire planet, unless it's being protected by the FBI Capitol hill police, the , uh , the national guard or any of those people, then you can just kind of walk right in there. But , uh, ordinarily it's pretty secure. And what happens here two months later on February 17th, Joe Biden, he's still double masking. Look at that two masks on, he's got a black one and a white one on to match the suit. So he's got two masks on, on February 17 , two months later. So wa so if you're thinking about getting the vaccine, so you don't have to mask up any more , cause it's a stupid thing, then that's your opinion. Of course. Well, you look to the president and say , well, he got the vaccine and he's still vaccinated, right? You might say, well, I'm so dumb. That's why I need everybody else to tell me how to think . But I I'm thinking that I can put those two together that he got the vaccine and he's still wearing the mask . So maybe the vaccine doesn't work just logically because if you got the vaccine seen and it protected you and it fit immune immunized, you, then you wouldn't need the mass, but here's Joe Biden, of course wearing the mask. Now it just didn't stop there on April 28th, about a month later, two months later, we've got Harris. She crosses the Capitol rotunda on the way to president Biden's joint address. And so I've always given them grief about continuing to wear the masks, but here it is, April 28 , she got vaccinated three months earlier, still wearing it, right. Still wearing it. And so , uh , when I would be critical about this previously on the show, people would say, I posted it on Twitter and people say, well, what about the vaccine ? Were you, you know, the master, whatever, say what you want about the mass. Okay. All right . I don't even have an opinion on whether they work. I don't even know as you know, there's studies. I think that say they do fine. Okay . I'll accept that. As fact, I don't really care about that. What I think is more important is about the messaging and about what the, what the behind administration is doing. They're saying all this stuff works. And then they're literally parading through the Capitol building on her way to president Biden's joint address. And they're all massed up. So if you're just a regular ordinary, everyday, everyday average, Joe American, like me just go, well, I don't know why . I guess what's the point, right? You got to where you get , if you get vaccinated, you got to wear the mask anyway. So what's the incentive. And then you might say, well, maybe that's just, you know , uh , because they're politicians and they're just , uh, you know, trying to show society what is important. So it's essentially virtue signaling, right? And that's been the excuse for a long time. Well, they're just doing it to make sure that other people, you know, it's symbolic. It's sort of like, we want people to wear the mask. Okay. Well, if you want him to wear the mask, then I think you're probably sacrificing some people from getting the vaccine by that. So you kind of pick one or the other, right? Most people are not going to go out and race to do both, but the white house was, I guess, prioritizing the masks because at that point in time recall , it had largely become sort of a social symbol, right? People were flipping out in the grocery store wars and killing each other over the masks. So they had to sort of continue that little charade for some time. Then we go over to the G seven, G seven was just about a , what is that? A month ago? Back on June 14th, they're still doing this right? The world leaders. We don't see any masks in this picture, but we do , uh , in others, if you look around the [inaudible] , but I took this one because I just wanted to show you kind of still what's going on here. Right? We're still doing the , uh , the elbow bump. We saw a lot of this goofiness over there. Uh , all of them vaccinated, of course, all of them still doing the goofy COVID stuff. Whereas you would expect them to be like hugging each other. High-fiving Hey, we just beat COVID, you know, we've all got the vaccines , uh , good job, go get your vaccine. And YouTube can be like us, your world leaders. But of course they didn't do that. Kamala Harris also on June 8th, 2021, she was meeting with the Mexican president and we covered that story here, here she is in a mask. Okay. He is not in a mask, right? Because he is actually sort of leading his people. He's showing them, Hey, if you get the vaccine, you don't have to wear a mask on probably wondering to himself, why are they still prioritizing the masks in the U S instead of sort of, you know , signaling that if you get the vaccine, you can take the mask off. So , uh, you know, we have, we have a literal literal side-by-side Kamala Harris , uh, you know, doing the face mask thing and another world leader who in my opinion is, is , uh, probably considerably more astute in his , uh , uh , political career of course is not wearing a mask because he is the leader of his country. So , uh , let's see what you have to say about this. Any thoughts or any comments on this? How do you feel about the vaccine hesitancy stuff? We're going to take a look over it , watching the watchers.locals.com and check out what's going on in the chat. We've got farmer's daughters here. We got little Panda Cubs over there, and we have be brave and others. Let's go over to the questions on the form and let me see what screen I put those on because I am all discombobulated. All right . We got first up in the house. Let's see what we have. We got, we got welfare Panda says, did you have a nice weekend Panda? I'm watching you the show. So yes, I did have a nice weekend. What I did all weekend. I was in here all weekend , uh, moving stuff around and reconnecting the court . You might say it really doesn't take much time to sort of move. So everything just kind of move like four feet, but there are so many cables, so many screens and so many different things on plugging into each other. It's like, I'm surprised I got it all back together, but here we are. And , uh , I did have a good weekend Panda. I hope you did too. Welfare Panda. Thank you. Let's see what else we've got. Let's see. Who else would it's Panda. All right . We got Kareem says, I think we will always be under the illusion that times are not equally as bad , bad as they were in the 1930s, because we were slowly easing into it. It's like when you reach grade 12 and it seems like you were in grade nine, the students were in the senior year, then were older, even older than , and you are now, but they weren't. Yeah. It's an interesting observation. So the analogy that I've been using a lot lately is the frog in the boiling pot. I've been using that one a lot. Courtney's here says, okay, so they spent all last year criticizing Trump vaccines and how they were no good because they came from Trump. And of course, there's the media echo chamber. So now polls show dams more dams than GOP or vaccine resistant. And they're changing the narrative. Don't you love the way they mangle and reshape history. Yeah , it's a , it's a beautiful thing, you know, to the Victor go. The spoils, that includes rewriting history, right? The, the, the hit the winners, write the history books, not the other way around. Good to see you, Sharon. Let's see, we've got Ian on test says , give us a 360 of your studio. Why ? I don't know, because I'm curious as to what your, your digs look like. So , uh, I can't do that right now, but I will do that. So here's what I'll do when I get it a little bit more settled up, eat on test . I'll make a video and I'll post that over on locals. I'm going to do some more behind the scenes . I've seen stuff on locals anyways, but I just want to get this settled. I will do that on locals. We have, [inaudible] says you can set up a green screen behind you and you can have interesting videos appear while you're explaining yourself , Jack . Ooh, I like that. I actually have a green screen. When I, when I , uh, when I buy stuff, I sort of have a problem with buying technology stuff. So I actually have a green screen. I don't think I've ever used it, but I have one. I have one of the ones that pops up and so I could spring it up right behind me and cover up this entire background. But I just thought, I'd let you see what's going on back there. It's a mess. Let's see, we got pili wheel it . Wally pili . Wally's here says, Hey, Rob, keep up the good work and much love in England today. They relaxed all COVID measures , which was celebrated as a win. But later in the day, Boris stated the vaccine passports would be needed to gain entry into nightclubs. They hope it'll speed up the vaccine rollout and letting people chew . But how about letting people choose what goes into their body? Thankfully, I'm in Scotland. We have no such thing yet in the world of William Wallace. Freedom. Yes. Love that. Braveheart, I think is my favorite movie of all time. Uh that's that's typically what I say. It's typically Braveheart. Cause I love that movie. Okay. It's a great question or a great comment. Thank you for chiming in. Good to hear you from Scotland. How cool is that? Um, yeah, that's , that's, that's a scary thing thing . We talked about this last week, right? The French president McCrone came out and he said the same thing. Anywhere you go, you're going to need your digital passport, your digital COVID passport. And I said, Canary in the coal mine back then I said, watch the other dominoes start to fall. Here's England. And the U S is next we have, who was that? Somebody in the Biden administration just came back out and is now sort of hinting that local, you know, require local mandates, local things like that are going to be more permissible. So we know where this is going. We've already seen this story here we are again. Sharon says, okay, here we go with the clamp down on freedom of speech because it's killing people, just another brick in the new Stalinist Berlin wall. Good to see you. We've got wants to know, says the problem is the west coast and the east coast governors. When the vaccine first came out, where are they going to do the three months study? Let's see. Okay. So no one, no one knows what to believe too much lying and BS is going on. That's from want to know. Good to see. You want to know, we have speech on leash says maybe if we're being honest with the public, then people wouldn't be so hesitant first, no mass , then mass , then double mass , then get the vaccine and you'll be fine. Then still wear a mask and distance. Even if you are vaccinated now, California is locking down again. Even for those vaccinated, no wonder people are hesitant. And yeah . So, so now the CDC came out and said, well, you don't need masks if you're vaccinated. But then the , uh , from the first slide on this segment, we showed the person from the bite administration who said, well, if you're local and you want to mask up anyways, then certainly you can, all right , we got Sharon is here, says what surprises me is, they're leaning on farce book rather than blaming Trump for all the information. And we've got , uh , Kenny one B says, I don't understand why folks think Snowden is such a hero. Only a tiny, oh, this is, this is for the next segment. So we'll get there. We'll get onto the next segment. Uh, Sharon Courtney says it is certainly a political issue. All right. All right. So let's see what we've got going on. I've got a bunch of questions, but they're a little bit out of order. So I apologize. Your federal unemployment tax act says, people need to stop using Facebook's. They don't care about you. They violate your privacy. They gather data. They sell it, especially private messages. And they do other things on Facebook. Which of course, we don't want to talk about Jeremy. Machida says the left, doesn't understand human psychology. They more than try to push people to do things. The more hesitant they will be. Right. And we say that a lot here. It's, you know, it's a program of attraction, not promotion. If you live a good life and honorable life and you do well, people will be attracted to that. If you, if you speak admirably and you speak, I think, you know, positively about certain things. People will , people are more inclined to, to follow you, which we would expect from our leaders, but we don't have that. Right . And is here. It says, I really hope I'm wrong, but I I'm finding it hard to shake the feeling that Biden is doing, what they can to trigger a violent uprising from red states . And given the red states have lower vaccination rates, all of these threats about going door to door, sensor, SMS, and social media seem to be examples of this, this level of vitriol against individual choices , profoundly reckless and Trump is 100% correct about it being due to a lack of trust. So it does sort of feel like that, right? A lot of these things I feel like are almost engineered to just kind of needle people. Now , I don't think that they're intentionally trying to cause a violent appraising uprising in the red states. But I do think that these are, these are strategic political maneuvers that they're , that they are using in order to, you know , to achieve their political goals, which is what you do in politics. So I think, I think what we're seeing here is, is absolutely concerning to a degree that I've not experienced in my lifetime. You know, this has happened very quickly. And I've said this here on the show, you know, I , I never would have imagined two years ago ever saying that we would not be allowed to go out and do certain things. I just never would have imagined that. But here we are. That's our new reality medical Edward is here, says, Rob, how much of this information do you think comes from the left in an attempt to use that very disinflation as a justification for censorship . So as I think a lot of what was considered far, right? Conspiracy theories, following the election was generated by the underground left to bait people, into believing the stories they would share and to quote them and then left us , jumped all over those people, call them quacks and discredit them. I agree. People didn't need to make up their own mind, but people please do research and verify sources don't fall for it. That is a good comment over there. Todd is here, says Todd trouts here. It says, let's all take a moment to understand the centralist communist Chinese communist, Chinese government gave us the virus. The decentralized capitalist Republic gave us the vaccine. It was a good, that's a good comment there. Todd trout. We're going to talk about China here in the last segment of the show because they're threatening to nuke Japan. So that's going to be fun. Tos forever says Americans are able to think and make educated choices. I trust. I do not trust pharma Greek for witchcraft I have. Is that right? I have not been sick since 1991. No putting drugs in my body period. Pharma. Is that Greek? Well, that is something isn't it? Yeah . Let's see. Jeremy says, Rob, I'm glad you decided to take advantage of your multiple monitors, but I think the panels looked great. Maybe you can have a large picture of Scottsdale framed and put a backlight behind it. Yeah. Thanks Jeremy. You know, people have different takes on that. A lot of people really like the new version of my second studio that I was working from. But uh , other people like the spaceship . So, you know, I'm probably gonna change it. I don't know once a year. Cause I'm weird like that, but we'll see. We've got Sharon says, Hey, it makes total sense to keep on with the mass since the vaccine was produced by Trump. So it can't be trusted, but you have to get the shot because the current regime is promoting it. Yeah. Change right after the election. Everything changed. All right. Let's see what else we're going to kind of see if we've got some other questions here. Uh , wide awake says it's my, can I get a shout out? Shout out wide awake. Happy birthday. Wide awake. Woo . All right. So probably never going to sing again on this show. That's okay though. Happy birthday. We have Joe Biden's rebuke day. A few times says , uh , Roberta says Joe Biden is a joke and a hypocrite. He is not going to stop with COVID as a Texas Democrats, traveling to DC. Got COVID heard about that story. Five of them. I think maybe they should have worn their masks on their chartered planes and stopped drinking that Miller light and partying out and having those, you know , wild , uh, activities over there. The incentives to get the vaccine such as not needing to wear a mask, not receiving, COVID not to return to work without being an ambassador . Not there. Who would trust come all up and Joe on COVID Emma is only good. Oh my gosh. Oh , all right . I'm glad I all right. So good to see you. [inaudible] I always have to be careful with your questions. We have farmer's daughter says Robert, my brother-in-law had a small tumor in his prostate for years. I'm sorry to hear that his CA 1 25 is normal one month after his second vaccine, his number shut up. He's had to be cataract co uh, catheterized is now as three spots on his pelvis, but too much of a coincidence. Yeah . Uh, not good. Not good. All right. So those questions came over from watching the watchers.locals.com. Let's see what else? I think we had a super chat come in from Zulu early on, on the show. Good to see you Zulu. Thank you very much for that. I appreciate it. And , uh , I'm , I'm grateful that you're here, my friend. So I, I'm going to figure out how to, how to, how to work those out on another show, but really thank you as you Lou . I do appreciate that and it's good to see you, my friend. All right. So we're going to change gears. All, all those questions came over from watching the watchers.locals.com . And we're going to move on into the next segment. Thank you for all of your support. All right. Cyber security, cyber warfare, cyber surveillance. It's kind of the new word. Is this the new battleground many people are saying, well, it could be. I have talked a lot about the surveillance state here on this channel. And I've talked often about Edward Snowden. Somebody who I think was a hero in many ways, somebody who helped to unveil what our government was actually doing behind the scenes. And once we learned what they were doing, we were all, I think a little bit shook for, for a moment. And what we're seeing today almost feels like that kind of on steroids. We just don't know about it, but there's a new story that is now spreading around the internet, like wildfire, Edward Snowden , of course, first flag this for me over on Twitter, over the weekends as stop what you're doing and read this, this leak is going to be the story of the year and he links it to us. Right? And so I think if Edward Snowden says something like that, it's probably worth a listen. Given the fact that he also unveiled a story that was the story of the year, really the story of the decade, about what our government does and how much information they gobble up on a regular basis. So we're going to go through this story. It involves a, an Israeli security group called the NSO group, which is based of course, out of Israel. And the guardian just revealed that they use this software called Pegasus to infiltrate and access your data. Basically wherever you are, they can actually send you a text messages or WhatsApp message or use some other unknown vulnerability to get access to your phone, turn on your microphone, arguably, turn on , turn on your camera, wherever you are. And they're actually selling this software, this technology, the ability to do this to people all over the world and a leak happened. And we now know who's on that list who was being targeted for these surveillance activities. So when this comes out, it's going to be a , should be a big thing. Let's dive into the story over from the guardian. So it says, revealed leaks, uncovers, global abuse of a cyber surveillance weapon spyware was sold to authoritarian regimes used to target activists, politicians, and journalists, the data suggests. So I want to make sure that we are understanding that sub headline there spyware is being sold to authoritarian regimes that is targeting activists, politicians, and journalists. Okay. So if you have a tyrannical dictatorship and you have people who are fighting to, you know , spread democracy, for example, then that authoritarian regime, the regimes that don't really value free speech, free expression, free association, democracy, those concepts, they can spy on the people within their countries who are in favor of those ideals. They can act , they can use this software and undermine their efforts. Let's get back to it. It's called the Pegasus project. You can see, this is part of a major stub over here written by Stephanie Kirsch Gassner . We have Paul Lewis. We have David peg , Sam Cutler, Nina [inaudible] and Michael Saffy . Okay . Published on Sunday, June 18th, 2021. And you'll note many authors write you. Don't see often articles like this and have this many authors, but let's get into the story. Human rights activist, journalists and lawyers across the world. And lawyers across the world have been targeted by governments using hacking software sold by the Israeli surveillance company called NSO group. We're going to learn about them. There was an investigation that came by due to a massive data leak the investigation by the guardian and 16 other media organizations suggest that widespread and continuing abuse of NSOC hacking spyware, known as Pegasus, which the company insists is only intended for use against criminals and terrorists. Right? So they're on the good guy side. Pegasus is a malware that infects iPhones and Android devices enables operators of the tool to extract messages, photos, emails, record calls, and secretly activate microphones. Oh, the Lee contains a list of more than 50,000 phone numbers that it is believed have been identified as those people of interest by clients of the NSO group. So the NSO group is out there. This Israeli spy company, they have all sorts of technology that they can use to get into Android phones and iPhones. And just sort of, you know , somehow sounds like remotely, even just turn on your microphone, secretly, turn it on. So they don't have to have access to this. Remember we've, we've heard a lot about these data problems for a lot, for a long time here, where the FBI is trying to crack into the iPhone of somebody who shot. You know, I think that there were, there was a shooting that took place in California, which is where this really all started to unfold. And they apple said, no, you're on your own, you know , figure it out. So they're not going to help them breach their own security. But that doesn't mean that other companies don't have that vulnerabilities that are , have not been released to the public. And so if this international group has these, these vulnerabilities, it can just go and just remotely access your device. Previously, the FBI needed to have the device, remember that they needed to plug it in. The device was encrypted. They asked apple for the unencrypted key and apple said no. So now it sounds like they can just send you a message and turn on your microphone, just start recording and downloading data from that. And they have a list of 50,000 people on whom this technology may have been used. According to the guardian lawyers, journalists, human rights, activists, everybody scary stuff, who is the NSO group. Let's go check them out. And you'll notice here is the headline of their , a webpage cyber intelligence for global security and stability. The NSO creates technology that helps government agencies prevent and investigate terrorism and crime to save thousands of lives across the globe. Well, that sounds nice. They're just stopping terrorism. We all hate terrorism and crime too. And they're saving thousands of lives. They're doing it . They're doing a good stuff. They're doing good stuff over there. And uh , funny down here, they have this big bar , uh , as soon as the article came out, I'm not sure if this was added after the fact, but they have this big bar down here that says, oh, the first annual transparency and responsibility report. So , uh, so as this information of this leak slowly starts to make its way public. Suddenly they come out, oh, we have a report. We have a report that highlights the scale , the safeguards against the misuse of our technology. And it outlines internal governance and compliance processes. And they just did the first one this year because , uh , they know what's coming. They know what shoot we should probably , uh, what should we, they , they found all of our secret hacking files. What should we do? Let's create a committee and we're going to call it the transparency and responsibility report. And we're going to say, we're going to do this annually. How does that sound brilliant? Yeah, that's great. Everybody at the conference rooms, high-fives each other. They go out there and they say, no, we follow the rule. Only being used for terrorists and criminals and uh , believe us. So let's see if you do or not totally up to you. Let's, let's go back, figure out who else they are. So they develop best in class technology to help the government detect and prevent terrorism use cases, preventing terrorism, including gun violence, which is the word [inaudible] from the new administration car bomb, suicide bombers break up different types of criminality find and rescue kidnapped children. So that's good. And we have assist emergency search in locating survivors. So I'm not sure why they need access to your iPhone for that, maybe your GPS data, but you can choose find my iPhone anyways. So that's what the NSO group does. And here are their values. I always like values for four firms. We talk a lot about them here, accountability, which is something we talk about on the show, right? Accountability and transparency shining that big, beautiful light spotlight. They talk about excellence. They have boldness of course, pretty bold in what they're doing and integrity. Another, another good one. You'll see. Often a boldness we believe in success comes by being Intrepid at the NSL, alongside a deep understanding of our business responsibilities. We emphasize being bold yet being accountable. Well, we'll see if they , uh, if they stay true to that. So we've got NSO group. We now know who they are. They had a list of 50,000 phone numbers that could have been clients or people of interests that were , were spied on by the NSO group. So where did this all come from for Ben stories is a Paris based nonprofit organization. They are a , the presence of a phone number in the data does not reveal whether the device was infected by Pegasus. But the consortium for being stories believes that the data is indicative of the potential targets, government clients, so possible surveillance attempts. So maybe not everybody on that list was actually spied upon, but who knows? They might've been sort of in the, in the bucket of potentials forensics analysis of a small number of phones shows that about half of them had traces of the Pegasus software. So maybe this is something that could even sort of cover up for itself. The guardian and its media partners. Listen to this. We'll be revealing the identities of people whose number appeared on the list in the coming days. So they're just going to tell you who's on the list. They include hundreds of business executives, religious figures, academics, NGO employees. So non-government organization employees, union officials, and government officials, including cabinet ministers, presidents, and prime ministers folks, prime ministers presidents. You have an Israeli intelligence group who is capable of hacking into a president or prime ministers, Android or iPhone device and turning on the microphone. Whew , not good. The list also contains the numbers of close family members of one country's ruler. Suggesting the ruler may have instructed their intelligence agencies to explore the possibility of monitoring their own relatives. Can you guess what world leader that might be? Are they doing business with North Korea over there? So the guardian now is going to do the slow drip, which I just love that just drip, drip, drip, if they actually drip anything good, but here it is. Oh, Bron camera. Here. It is over here. The disclosures, the disclosures begin on Sunday with the revelation that the reports of more than 180 journalists are listed in the data. Big number, 180 journalists, Ooh , including reporters, editors and executives at the financial times, CNN fake news CNN, the New York times France, 24, the economist and the associated press and Reuters. Oh man. The is what's the media going to say about this? Aren't they like all in favor of Baton Rouge , harmful information. What if they say this is just harmful information? The phone number of a freelance Mexican reporter was also in the list. And NSO said that even if his phone had been targeted did not mean that they actually had access to it. Okay. So let's take a look at what we've got going on here. The consortium analysis of the leak data. Now I to , I want to pay close attention to this. So , uh , this is a screenshot that came over from the guardian article and we can just kind of look geographically around the world and see who's on this list. It says the consortium analysis of the leak data identified at least 10 governments believe to be NSO customers. So they had access to this software. We've got Azerbaijan, we got Bahrain. We got Catholics down in Mexico, Morocco, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, hungry India, and the United Arab Emirates. They're all in there. So, which is, which is curious, right? You , you think, huh? You know, these re the Israelis are very close with the United States government in many, many ways, including militarily, including to combat terrorism. Would they maybe working with this organization? I mean, why wouldn't they be working with us, the organization and why wouldn't this organization be working with other, you know , allies of Western democracies? Let's say, for example. So here we've got, you know, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Hmm . No , those aren't really seeing as pillars of democracy throughout the world. So you're missing some of them, you know, you're missing places like England, we're missing the United States. We're missing Australia. We're missing some pretty big players and some countries that are even a part of the five eyes Alliance. So why didn't they get the data? Why didn't they get the goods? My friends, I think this is just the beginning. That's the reason why it's not shown here because we're talking about the dog that doesn't bark something, we're expecting a dog to be barking here. We're expecting the us to be involved in this. Right . And they're not, why is that? Huh, weird. And also Australia and England, and some of the others know allies that you would typically expect to find in some of the other surveillance states that we've talked about here on the show, they're not here. So is it because they're not involved or because they're not included in the leak just yet? Well, you can be, of course the, the arbiter of that next up, we've got analysis of data that suggests that the NSO client country that selected the most numbers was Mexico, both Morocco and the UAE had more than 10,000 numbers. So 15,000 over in Mexico, Morocco, more than 10,000, a lot of people being spied on over there and in the UAE, we also have some data here, the phone numbers, which were selected possibly ahead of a surveillance attacks span more than 45 countries across four continents, more than 1000 numbers in Europe, European countries, right? It's more than 1000 over there. Here's some England looks like , uh , what else? We have Turkey, south America and Mexico, nothing in the U S that's weird. Nothing in Australia. Hm . Curious. Well, let's see. Without forensic examination of the mobile devices, it's impossible to say whether the phones were subject to an attack. NSO has always maintained. It does not operate the systems that it sells to vetted government customers. And it does not have access to the data of its customers target. So once it's out of their hands, it's out of their hands, it's up to them. If they want to spy on somebody, they're welcome to do that. In statements issued through its lawyers, the NSO denied the false claims that that said it continued to investigate all credible claims of misuse. It said that the 50,000 figure is being described as exaggerated. The company sells only to military law enforcement and intelligence agencies in 40 unnamed countries. It says it rigorously vets, its human rights records before allowing them to use it spy tools. Huh? Okay. Now here's where it went to intelligence agencies. 51% law enforcement agencies, 38%. So that's scary. And military 11%. Here's how it works. Attack vectors pack . Pegasus can be installed on a phone, through vulnerabilities in common apps or by tricking the target into clicking a malicious link. So it sounds like right. They can just send you a text message, a WhatsApp. They can send you an iMessage or just use some other unknown Volvo vulnerability. They can actually send that to you, meaning they don't actually have to Jack into your phone. They can just send it. And then once installed it installs the Pegasus is spyware software and then it can harvest any data from the device and transmit it back to the attackers . Other texts, other emails, other photos and videos, activate the microphone, activate your camera, record your calls, everything and anything. They just turn it on. They can just see right there. Probably see your screen. Probably turn on the front camera and see what you're looking at. As you're looking at the screen. No he's looking at the stocks again. Wow. Those are not doing so good, but you know, are you alone if they want it too ? Wow. All right . Bye. Accessing the sensors in the phone that can also log a person's past movements and track their location in real time with pinpoint accuracy for establishing the direction that , uh , the speed of car was traveling in the latest advances in the technology enable it to penetrate phones with zero click attacks. Meaning a user does not even have to need to click on a link for, for their phone to be effective. Wineries identified evidence at the NSO has been exploiting vulnerabilities associated with iMessage comes, installed on all I-phones and been able to penetrate even the most up-to-date iPhone running the latest version of iOS. His team's forensic science analysis discovered successful attempts last month. So, so it sounds like they've got some , some pretty deep vulnerabilities in these different software. I used to be an iPhone owner when I was younger and you know, a little more naive. I used to use that operating system. So what happened is I became an adult and migrated over to Android, wait for those comments. And , uh, I stopped using iMessage , but when I was on iPhone, it was a big deal breaker . I used to love to jailbreak my iPhone and tinker around with it. And I had a lot of fun with it. I think it's a great platform. I just like to needle iPhone , but it's, it's something that, you know, it was always a cat and mouse game. You would crack the iPhone. Apple would update it. You'd crack it again. It would take longer. You'd have to, you know, somebody else would crack it, update it, crack it. And there's a very, very, a geo hot, very impressive man who , uh, was very responsible for that back during the jailbreak era. But it sounds like, you know , all of those were public releases that were, that many people were able to utilize and exploit, but, but these different companies, like the NSO group have their own vulnerabilities that they can use to just sort of hack your phones and they don't tell anybody about it. So apple doesn't have the ability to patch them. The other exploits were public geo hot, just released them. And so apple would just go, oh, darn it. You found a hole in our platform. And so we would correct it. But the NSO group of course, is not doing that. Posted a response here. They say, following the publication of the recent article of forbidden stories, we wanted to directly address the false accusations and the allegations presented there. So as the report by the story is wrong, wrong assumptions and uncorroborated theories, excuse me, that raise serious doubts about the reliability and the interest of the sources. After checking them claims, we firmly deny the false allegations made in their report hours . Their sources have supplied them with information, which has no factual basis as evidenced by the lack of support documents. Well, they said that it's more of it's gonna come out soon. In fact, these allegations are so outrageous that NSO is considering a defamation lawsuit. Oh, NSO group has good reason to believe the claims are made or unnamed sources. They're based on an , uh , misleading interpretation of data from accessible and overt, basic information, have no bearing on the list of customers that we've worked with. The claims that the data was leaked is complete lie and ridiculous . Such data has never existed on any of our servers. NSO has said previously our technology was not associated in any way with the murder of Jamal, because SOGI , we can confirm that our technology was not used to listen, monitor track, or collect information regarding him or his family members mentioned in the inquiry already investigated this. We would like to emphasize that we sell its technologies to only to law enforcement and intelligence agencies. And so does operate the system and has no visibility of the data. Right? And so here, oh, kidnap children, survivors, right? Airspace protect, airspace, collapsed buildings by all of the things that you would normally see to hackers and pedophiles file rings and trafficking. Okay. So, you know, we're doing real good work out there. All right . So what do you think about that? Let's take a look at the chat over from watching the Watchers dot locals dot and over on YouTube now, because I've got that. I got multiple screens now, so I can, I can see some of that. All right. Let's see. We've got Joe snows over there. Speech unleashed is over there. We've got Baranski is in the house. Um , he says iPhone is more secure than Android, but is that saying much shrug? Right. So it's kind of funny. All right. Let's take a look at some questions and see what is , uh, what's coming in from the community over there. Uh, we've got a couple here. A grateful Panda says, thank you. We have , uh, Sadie says, I li that's , that's an old topic. We have NSO group. I want to know, says it doesn't surprise me that the Israeli have I eavesdropping software, sold it to some, some Israel's are the worst cabal in the world. Massaad went and killed terrorists in other countries. I'm sure the local police have this technology to at least stingray Capitol police need something to do also all over the USA. Yes. That's a good point once I know. Yeah. So the police have a lot of this technology it's called stingray. We talked a lot about that. On a previous episode, Kareem is here, says the issue is I see that the next generation will be born into this. And for them it will be normal. Did you know when photography was first created? It was controversial. People were not comfortable with someone. They never met, know what they look like as if cameras are ever going away at this point. Yeah, it's true. You know? Uh, yeah, it's true. It's a complicated, it's a complicated thing. I I've been thinking about that a lot lately. Right. Kids are sort of growing up in a world where they're , they're talking to these devices all around us now naturally in a way that I'm not comfortable with. I, for some reason I never talked to my devices. I have them everywhere, but I never talked to them. And uh , other kids now they just sort of do it all the time. It's kind of weird. And they're going to be more accustomed to that as , uh , as the technology improves, which is, which is kind of cool, kind of scary. All right . One Florida man says, how many people do you suppose are being spied on that are Trump supporters, according to their social media posts, you have to be proactive when you're trying to prevent future insurrections. Well, I, you know, I mean, I'm going to be a little bit offended if I'm not on that list, quite frankly. All right. You know, I w which is why I'm of the perspective that I've always said. I think the government is watching everything all the time. So I live a very boring life. All right . Good questions . Let's see what else is going on? We've got, oh my gosh. I've got so many screens. I don't know what to do with myself. All right. We've got another question coming in from farmers . Daughter says, Robert. I remember when Biden was announced the winner, you were so sure it would take years to implement his policies, man. I wish you would have been. Right. The thing is, we weren't aware how far ahead of the curve they were before they got him in there. Forgive you. Thank you. Thank you. Farmer's daughter. I appreciate that. By the way, regarding Friday stream, I have so enjoyed seeing your evolution so happy. I found you and joining locals. I'm grateful that you're here. Farmer's daughter absolutely love you to death. I appreciate all your love and comments. And you're a lot of fun. You're always spunky in the chat and around. And so I appreciate it. Yeah. You know, things are moving pretty here, aren't they? And I did say that back in 2000 , uh, back back during the election, it's like, well, you know, what, how much are they going to get done by 2022? And I still kind of think that, I mean, really what have they gotten done? Not, not much. Right. A lot of it has been executive orders, a ton of spending a ton of spending, but they didn't pass their criminal justice reform bill. They didn't pass HR one . I don't, you know, the infrastructure deal who knows where that goes. And so there's, you know , a lot of, a lot of the big issues that the Democrats are really excited about, kind of just kind of stalled. Now that doesn't mean that there aren't very scary, problematic things happening. I also would not have imagined that the federal government through the white house would be coming out here and saying that we actually have to essentially sensor social media companies. I mean, that's insane. Uh , and , and the fact that people are sort of clapping their hands, like idiot seals, Ooh , take away all my freedoms and my liberties. No problem. It's insane to me, but they are because they all have been indoctrinated to think that if you don't follow in lockstep with whatever your political party says, then somehow you're killing somebody's grandma out there just for, for trying to live your life. It was a weird thing. I saw some woman on CNN the other day , uh, who was that? I can't remember her name, but , but basically talking about that, right? The default for existing in life is you don't. The default is you don't have access to freedom. We'll give you some freedom. If you comply with our rules, like getting vaccinated, wearing a mask, doing all of these things we tell you to do, then we're going to just kind of give you a little, oh, here's another freedom for you. And one more freedom, token, one more freedom token for you. Uh , you've been very good, boy. Here's one for you to , uh , no, that's not how that works. Okay. We have had this conversation many times the government exists based on consent of the government . And there are many of us out there who say that freedom comes first. Freedom is the default. If you want to tell certain people that there's something scary out in the world, they have the free choice to decide not to go out into the world. But the rest of us who also want to engage in our society society, we start there. We don't ask for permission there. Uh, at least that's my perspective. The country seems like it might be moving the other direction though. Not us here obviously, but other people, all right , row Butte day is here. I gotta be careful with these ones says, of course the government is such as the U S is spying on you. Tips include using Monero for cash for transactions, which is a cryptocurrency. I'm not endorsing that or endorsing financial advice here. But , uh , there are, there are a lot of tips here that you can use a pixel phone graphing, O S R some of these concepts, prepaid SIM cards. Don't use SMS, use signal, use element for communication, a JavaScript by default used to write a robot day. You should write an article about this, man. You know, a lot about this avoiding spying is a pain, but there's oh, he says tech lore . The hated one has some extra tips on privacy and security. So a pretty benevolent post their reputation. Thank you, tech lore . And the hated one has some extra tips on privacy and security. So go check that out and thank you for that. Repeat they very, very good data there. We have , uh , already got that one. Jeremy [inaudible] says a hem . No comment. Oh, that must be, is that an I , is that an iPhone? Is that an iPhone comment there? Jeremy? I think it is. Well, let's see what else. No doubt says I phone is more secure. So I knew it was going to turn into an iPhone conversation. Uh , I phone is north is more secure, but it is standardized. It's also the bigger target. Android is easier to compromise, but the wide variability and implementations makes it less rewarding to compromise. Okay. So that's a good point, right? So you get sort of security by obscurity is the thing, right? There's so many different Android phones. There are Samsung and there's , uh , whatever the other ones . No , I have a Samsung, all the other Android phones like a million of them. And so each one of them has their own implementation of Android. So if you wanted to go and hack Android, you kind of have to be able to hack all of them. And since they all change it a little bit, it's kind of hard to do that. iPhones are all the same. They have, they all run the same software. So if you get one crack, you can kind of take out a huge swath of , uh , of iPhones out there. Last one on this segment says, Robert, I think you were talking to your devices right now. That's true. There's nobody else in here. It's just me. There's not another person in here. I am just talking to my devices up . Fortunately, I think there's somebody on the other end, but I , I could be wrong, right? This could just be a giant ruse . And I could just be rambling to myself in here all day, which, which sometimes, sometimes I do, but I'm not on camera. I just rambled to myself elsewhere and I just don't record it. Maybe I should record it. All right. Great questions. All of those came over from watching the watchers.locals.com and as a lot of activity over there in the chat Relic, hunters showed up. Good to see you. Zach's over there. And , uh , and some others. So appreciate all your support. You're watching the watchers.locals.com. All right. And so our last segment of the day, is it already been this long man, I'm losing, I'm losing focus because I've got all these lights and I'm sort of discombobulated right now. I don't even know where I am. All right. So last segment of the day. Oh my goodness. What are we talking about? Okay. The U S government now formally accuses China of hacking Microsoft and theoretically many other platforms and infrastructure throughout the United States. We have spent some time on this channel talking about some of these hacks, not all of them. You can directly connect to China, but this has been a big topic that we've been spending some time about here on the channel and in the United States in general, we just came off the back of the colonial pipeline hack, which took out entire , almost the entire Eastern seaboard of the United States. We talked here about the solar winds hacked. There are a lot of these ransomware hacks that are now taking place, where people are demanding to be paid in Bitcoin. And we covered another case where the FBI seized , uh , some of that money and the list goes on and on. We have also talked about the Chinese specifically poking and needling the United States in many different ways, talking about sending disguised fishing vessels over the Navy's area, 51, which is down, I believe in the Gulf of Mexico and also poking Anthony Blinken back during the Chinese American summit saying that basically don't you threaten us, don't you take your finger on our faces when you got BLM and other issues domestically in the United States. So this has been something that has been bubbling for some time, not to mention the fact that arguably the entire Corona virus escape from a lab out of [inaudible] than an entire video on that, on my second channel, down in the description below. But now the us is starting to formally accused China of some malevolence. Let's take a look here. The New York time gives us a headline. It says that the Biden administration is also expected to organize a broad group of allies to condemn Beijing for cyber attacks. So they're formerly accusing China of hacking Microsoft. And , uh , they're gonna stop short though, of taking concrete, punitive steps. This is Amy Neuberger , deputy national security advisor, over for the cyber and emerging technology. She's leading the response to the Microsoft hack. All right . So we're going to go through this here today. Want to start by going directly over to the primary source documents. This is the press release from the NSA and SISA and the FBI. This is the national security agency and the central security service defending our nation securing our future NSA SISA FBI. They detailed Chinese state sponsored actions. They say that the FBI and others they've released this advisory, it describes over 50 different tactics and techniques that and procedures that the TTPs that the Chinese state sponsored cyber actors used when targeting us and allied networks, Chinese state sponsored cyber activity poses, a major threat to the U S and allied six systems. These actors aggressively target political economic, like pipelines, military educational, and critical infrastructure personnel, and organizations to access valuable sensitive data. These cyber operations support China's long-term economic and military objective . So, you know , it's great now that , uh, the, the single politician who was the most hard on China is no longer an office anymore. Isn't that great? So we have Donald Trump who from day one was really angry with China and wanted to make sure that the U S elevated its posture against the Chinese incursions. And for about four years, we didn't hear much from them. Did we , uh, sort of, kind of around the margins here and there, and then COVID came and sort of Donald Trump got booted out of office and , and here we are, the Chinese, in my opinion, have been slowly sort of needling us in different ways. And now the U S government is responding. So let's take a look and get some background information on what's happening with Chinese cyber warfare, because this is something I think many people don't, I don't realize I think the scale of this. So I wanted to show you this over from Wikipedia, China is both the second largest economy and nuclear weapons state in the world. Second largest defense budget. Of course, after the U S the operation warfare includes the concept of network warfare, which is roughly analogous to the U S concept of cyber warfare. So foreign policy magazine said that China's quote, hacker army personnel range anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 individuals. And that is a massive number of hacker army. Okay. Not, not suited up in fatigues, not out there, driving around in Humvees and tanks and working with M sixteens or whatever they're using these days, but actually a hacker army. Okay. It's massive. Western countries have long accused China of aggressive espionage. And while investigations have traced various attacks on corporate and infrastructure systems to have originated in China, it is nearly impossible to know whether or not an attack is government sponsored because of the difficulty in tracking true identities, China, of course denied the allegations. And as they always do just blame the U S they accused the U S of cyber warfare in China, which is what they always do. Anthony Blinken went over to the Chinese delegation and said, well , you stopped treating those weekers poorly. And they just responded back and said , well, you had slaves in your country there. So how about that? That they just turn it off right around on you. And we've seen this from all of the other , uh , desk spots throughout the world. This is just something that they do if you ever criticize their , uh, you know, sort of modern day concentration camps. So , well , they're just, they'll just look back at what something that happened 200 years ago in your country. Uh, and , uh, and kind of , so, all right , uh, going on, we have some examples from cyber warfare of may, 2014 grand jury indicted five PLA officers. So that's five people's liberation army officers. We have September, 2014 Senate armed services committee revealed hackers from China, committed various intrusions to computer systems like airlines. Okay, not good. Uh , FBI added that hackers believed they were backed by the Chinese government have recently lodged attacks on us companies 2015, us OPM announced it was the target of a data breach likely coming from China, FBI James Comey said it's a very big deal from a national security perspective. And from a counter intelligence perspective, it's a treasure trove of information about everybody who has worked for tried to work for our works for the United States government. Guess what? Chinese have all that. So that's good. Uh, 2019 studies show that they continued attacks on the U S Navy 2020 February federal grand jury charged for members of China's people's liberation army with the Equifax hack. Uh, officials said that they got data on 145 million Americans. So likely in there , if you've ever paid taxes, voice of America reported that the U S intelligence agencies concluded that hackers metaled in both the 2016 and 2018 elections. And they were going to do it in 2020, but decided not to, they considered interfering in two and 20, but decided against it thinking it would fail or backfire. And then in April, 2021 firearm said that it suspected Chinese hackers used a zero day attack against pulse connect, secure devices to spy on dozens of government defense industry and financial targets in the now a lot. And then 50 to 100,000 people, if not more than that, working on it on a regular good news, though, the FBI's on top of it, they're going to fix it. Yeah , they're going to fix everything cause they're so great site statement from the assistant director. Brian Vorndran says that the FBI and our partners are determined to disrupt the increasingly sophisticated Chinese state sponsored cyber activity, targets us political economic, military education, and other things. FBI remains committed to imposing risk and consequences for this type of repeated malicious cyber activity. We urge our partners to apply these recommended mitigations. I mean, I, I'm not too sure thrilled that the FBI is honest because I don't. I think the only thing that they do now is prosecute January 6th , defendants. I think I'm not real sure what else they do, but they're good at that and not good at a lot of other things. We're going to talk about another case tomorrow where one of the, the undercover FBI agents who was , uh , part of the governor Whitmer case just got charged with domestic violence or something like that. I'm not sure yet we're going to read that story tomorrow. But my point is the FBI has been failing across the board. We've seen it. They couldn't even do anything to secure the Capitol hill building. Uh, and it's just been a disaster, the congressional building, what a mess anyway. So they're on it. So they're going to be dealing with China so great. You can sleep soundly at night knowing that the good old FBI is on top of it. Okay. Well, China is not just attacking the United States and not just pointing their fingers at our diplomats. They're also now threatening to nuke Japan. And I mean like, surely nuke, not like, Hey, we're going to wipe you off the planet or some sort of bravado like that. It's like, Hey, we're actually going to use nuclear weapons. And we know you've already been nuked before. We're going to do it again. If you even think about encouraging incursions on Taiwan. And so we're going to talk about this here in a minute. Great, great follow over here from Jennifer Zang. If you're on Twitter, she's over at NTD, she got this, she says CCP, the Chinese communist party vows to nuke Japan. If Japan defends Taiwan as Japan is the only country that has been nuked. So nuking Japan quote will get twice the result with half the effort. What's the Chinese people are actually saying that to the Japanese. Oh my gosh. Talk about bad form. Right? It's like, oh yeah , you've already, you've already been punished once before. So you're going to know what this feels like. Again, therefore we're not even going to have to worry about this. That's what have been bred into your culture. Like, gosh, whew , man. That is , uh , that is , uh , as a rude statement. That's very, very rude, not appropriate. Okay. So we're going to continue. We're going to get to the video. I promise this is an excerpt from a longer video. We're not going to watch the whole thing. It was uploaded two days ago. It has 2.37 million views. This was back on July 13th and 11,000 comments, 88,000 likes. So far channel has 2 million subscribers. Here's the original video. And here's the area of the world that we're talking about. Right? Some people kind of forget how close all of these different Asian countries are, but we have China over here. So it's sort of a here's Beijing, China, you got Shanghai down here. And then we have a Wu Han over here where, where the virus came from. They were claiming that it came over from some place over here, I believe, or the Hunan province, but it was over in a woo Han . No, the Yunan province. I think this is where they were saying it came from, but it didn't , uh , came from Mohan. And we know that. And so Japan is over here and , uh , Taiwan is right here. And so there's been a big battle for a long time between Taiwan and China. China says that Taiwan is part of China. Taiwan says, well, not really. So we're kind of democratic. And so Japan of course is democratic Taiwan, South Korea. We have North Korea over here. Who's largely aligned with the Russians up this direction and China over here. So we sort of see these, these fronts kind of forming right here, right? We've got Japan and South Korea and Taiwan and the U S over this direction, U S is over here. And then we've got sort of the axis powers over here. China and Hong Kong used to be over on this side. But Hong Kong is now over here now sort of aligned back over with China and Russia and North Korea, the axis powers of the modern era. So, you know , it's, it's shaping up to be kind of like, like a war zone a little bit, and it doesn't help when China puts out videos like this saying, when we liberate Taiwan, this is going to happen. So here's what we're going to do on this video. I'm going to read the , um , I'm going to read the translation because you're going to hear it in English. I'm sorry, in a Chinese Mandarin. And I'm going to translate it for you. I'm going to turn the volume down a little bit if I can , can. And , uh, we'll just go through it. It's about two minutes. So I'll just read the whole thing and let's see what the, what this has to say. All right. So here is when we liberate and we liberate Taiwan. If Japan dares to intervene by force, even if it only deploys one soldier, one plane in one ship, we will not only return reciprocal fire, but also start a full-scale war against Japan. We will use nuclear bombs. First. We will use nuclear bombs continuously until Japan declares unconditional surrender. If we target Japan's ability to endure a war, as long as Japan realizes that cannot afford to pay the price of war, it will not dare to rashly send troops to the Taiwan Strait. In 1964, our first bomb was successfully detonated. We promised the world that we would not use atomic bombs against non-nuclear countries, and that we would not be the first to use them. Nearly 60 years have passed . Although the strength of our nuclear to turn has been somewhat effective . This decision has not been as , has been a success and has safeguarded our peace. When we built our country. Now, the international situation has changed our country's in the middle of a major change that has not been seen as century and all political policies, tactics and strategies must be adjusted and change in the midst of such a major change in order to protect the peaceful rise of our country, it is necessary to make limited adjustments to our nuclear policy. We solemnly put forward the Japan exception theory in modern history. Japan has taken the initiative to harm the Chinese people many times. So I'm not going to read this propaganda garbage talking about Taiwan, the war of invasion, right? There were all sorts of atrocities here. [inaudible] yes . So, so you know, this is sort of a dread dredging up. This is all Chinese propaganda that you see. If Japan goes to war with China, for the third time, the Chinese people will take revenge on the old and the new scores. Japan is the only country in the world. That's hit by atomic bombs and has a deep memory of the atomic bombs from the government down to the people. Can you believe that it takes the United States? It takes the United States lying down. It is exactly because Japan has such unique feeling that nuclear deterrence will get twice. The result with half the effort, Japan is now an exception. We're not going to use nuclear weapons in the world, but Japan is an exception. We are warning Japan or informing the world that if Japan interferes militarily in our domestic affairs, including the unification of Taiwan, nuclear weapons will surely be used and will be used continuously until it's unconditional surrender propaganda folks, Chinese propaganda. This is flying all over China right now. I'm sure. And our , this, this is , uh , this is a us ally, the Chinese , the Japanese are, and this is a country that is across the pond from them in their military saying, we're going to nuke the hell out of them . I don't know if this is a common thing or not. I don't know if this is something that they do regularly. And the Japanese are just like, oh, whatever, kind of a big deal. They're saying we used to have a nuclear deterrence policy. Okay. We used to say, we're not going to use our nukes. Now we have a Japanese exception and what, what are we doing about any of this? I would, I would have to imagine you have to take them at their word, or is this just regular propaganda that comes out of China? I don't know. I don't know. But if they're saying that they're going to nuke Japan, that sounds like it is a pretty big problem. What's the white house going to do about it. Here's Joe Biden . Now Joe Biden , Joe Biden. So Joe Biden is out here now. And he's going to be , uh , you know, asking about this. Surely our military knows about this video. It's all over the internet. Now spreading around China, talking about actually nuking, Japan. What's what are they going to do about it? What's the white house going to do about it? Well, they're not going to issue any sanctions or anything. And you know , they're not gonna really do much of anything. [inaudible] anyway , wait, let me turn the sound back up. I had to turn the sound down so I could translate. Let's turn that back up. She jumps up before you do,

Speaker 3:

Is that effective and they're still determining exactly what happened. The investigation is not finished. Runaway shall run . What is your understanding of the biggest difference between what they've done versus what Russia's done? It turns aside with that take a longer explanation. No, we don't have to go to the best of my knowledge. And I'm getting a report tomorrow morning on this detailed . My understanding is that the Chinese government not unlike the Russian government is not doing this themselves, put her protecting those who are duty, maybe even accommodated . That may be the difference.

Speaker 1:

Oh my gosh. So he comes out and he says, well , uh, why no sanctions, Hey , Hey, Hey, Hey, your , uh, your administration just came out and said that there were some big problems with China. So why no sanctions, what are you going to do about this? He says, well, you know, we got a briefing tomorrow and I really don't know anything about it yet. And , uh, so he says, well, well , how about China ? Uh , you know, kind of vis-a-vis Russia. Like, are they kind of the same thing? Or what's your perspective on this? And he says, well, you know, I, I really can't talk much about this because it would take a long time to answer. And the reporter says, well , we got all the time in the world, Mr. President, since you're the president, of course, he said, well, I got to get going. I've got another appointment with the president of Jordan. But then he says , uh, well, here's what I know. The Chinese, like the Russians may be harboring them, or they may be even accommodating them, which is of course, what would justify some sanctions or some actions or something against the country in the world that is hacking your country's infrastructure. That is arguably responsible for releasing the Corona virus that wrecked the world. And that is now threatening to bomb with nukes. One of our allies. Hope they figure it out. All right , let's see. What's going on over at the, watching the Watchers dot Loke , what? We're watching the watchers.locals.com chat. I literally have so many screens here. I really I'm sort of like discombobulated. All right . So let's see who's going on. What's going on over there. We've got a couple. Oh my gosh. We got a lot on this one. Uh , reboot day. Is there on the spying thing? Let's keep moving on. Uh, yeah. So no doubt says that we're all bots. Yeah. So that's what I figured. I figured everybody on here was a bot obviously, because , um, because , uh, cause of reasons, all right , love OCA says China never heard of it. I think you are referring to west Taiwan. That's right. I like that. I love that. I love that. I always forget that west Taiwan, which really irritates all the, you know , a lot of Chinese says, I don't think that it's a good idea to nuke Japan as the U S can obliterate China with nukes. But then again, Joe and hunter are in China's pay book. So they may not Elliot . Yeah. Maybe we'll lift some more , uh, some more sanctions. Love was CA is here, says seriously, though, this is Wolf warrior diplomacy at its finest. Z gin pu is just bolstering nothing more than a sniffling schoolyard bully. This one hits close to home though, because my fiance is from Kawa shown . Sorry about that Taiwan. However, I don't think we need to worry. The people of the world are waking up considering the modern day concentration camps in Beijing, in Xinjiang, religious and cultural persecution in Tibet, mainland Asia, border disputes, over fishing, social credit system and major demographic issues. I don't think China's economic growth will extend into the future decades. China doesn't have many friends. The CCP needs the world, the world does it need the CCP? And I, I, I totally agree with that. I know a lot of people are really freaked out about China. I am too candidly. I mean, they , uh, my, my concerns with China are that they own a large part of our politicians. I mean, everybody really is afraid to denounce China. Even our sort of Titans of industry are right. Hollywood is scared. They modify the movies all over the place. You get guys like mark Cuban were like refusing to say anything that might jeopardize is the , uh , the market for there or their NBA product. And so the list kind of goes on and on. And we have all these people out there, these human rights, activists who are really concerned about all the horrors that happen around the world, unless it's going on in China, then they just shut their mouth. And they just go back to collecting the royalty checks from the Chinese. And , uh, it's, it's concerning when you have atrocities happening in the world and you have people who are supposed to be fighting and working against those atrocities, not saying anything about it. And that's where my concern is. It's sort of like , uh , you know, like many Americans have done a good job of papering over , over there, their relationship with a nefarious regime. Yeah . And they're getting the benefits of that. But as soon as more and more of this stuff starts to come out. I think that , uh, you know , I've always said this, right? The sensors don't win the totalitarians. Don't win the people who want to take your freedoms away from you. People eventually rebel , they revolt, they , they have revolutions, they get tired of it. And what China's trying to do is strip freedom away in every way, shape or form from their entire population. As 1.3 billion people over there. At some point, you know, there's going to be a George Washington over there, or a Paul Revere, you know , uh, uh, uh, somebody who's who wants to see things change and liberalize in, in a democratic fashion or, you know, a more capitalistic fashion. I think that that is ultimately going to happen, but it may take, you know, 50 years, you know, who knows. So it is a very interesting region. It's one of the most interesting regions in the world, I think, because of all the different act , uh , actors that are in play there. And I think we're gonna be paying a lot of attention to it for the foreseeable future, want to know, says, let's see Russia, China, own government hacking us Biden, just selling paintings to China. So nothing will happen. China already knows everything about us. Well, they hacked everything. Sharon says, gee , another about face for the Biden regime. I thought they were good buddies. And bedmates with the CCP. I guess they must be racist and xenophobes and all kinds of evil, just like what they accused DJT of being, or they could stop trying to siphon off some Trump supporters for their little Cami caused by emulating Trump. Well , uh, it's , it's a good point there, Sharon. I don't even know what to say about that. It's great. Thank you for that. Good to see you. Uh, Sharon's here against, has the FBI, are you kidding me? Does anybody believe anything? The FBI says, no, not really. All right . Hidden is here. It says China is so aggressive. The moment Trump loss , they have consistently scaled up both rhetoric and a show of force the army. I totally agree with that. Right? Totally agree. I, you you've seen that they have been very flamboyant about it. They don't even just come right in your face and just say it. Uh , no doubt is here. It says nation state hackers are the most advanced and difficult to defend against. They have extremely high capabilities and motivation. China establishes five-year plans for technology and intellectually property, intellectual property acquisition, and follows multiple strategies to achieve the objectives of the plan. Many hacker organizations can be traced back to Beijing and operated normal eight to five hours. The nation states sponsoring hacking from China has been known for almost a decade now. Very, very, very interesting. There are no doubt. Thank you for that. I think that is, is a very astute observation. I mean, if you have a hundred thousand people and their entire job, I mean, it would be like running, you know, how many, how many employees does, you know , does target have right target? I don't know a million. Is it that much? Is it a hundred thousand? I don't know. It's a lot of people. If they're all working towards hacking your adversaries, that's a powerful force. Very, very powerful and very scary rub . Your day says, really the FBI are so incompetent. They can't even prosecute all of the Capitol hill riders in the last six months. People's personal responsibility will help mitigate the cyber attacks. That's from reboot day . Sadie says, does this Chinese spine give more credence to the chumps suspicion of Huawei is Trump, right? Again. Yeah. You know, there's a lot of interesting things going on with that. I was going to clip them for the show, but I didn't, there are all sorts of things happening. So there's a, I think it's, I think it's Denmark, there's a company there that creates these really advanced machines that are like the most complicated machines on the planet. Like, and that's not an understatement. It's something like $150 million for a machine. It looks like a room kind of would be like the analogy an analogy would be to like, you know, the very first computer that ever existed, kind of like the size of a room, costing a fortune, but there's a Dutch company that is using them to manufacture sort of the next level chips that we need to, you know , build up our systems and things. And there was, I think the Trump administration just, you know, one of the last things they did was to prevent them from engaging or to selling that software over to the Chinese. And I think the buy ins actually upheld that. So , uh, you know, the world is starting to recognize, I think China for the threat that it is Brian hack is here, says I will destroy the Chinese communist party. Everything that threat against Japan will be another cut I place on their body before they meet them , their maker that's from Aidan test . That was a joke. That was a joke. It was a joke, right? Yeah. I think it was sat tired . Okay. The, the, the Chinese went bananas. If they're a little propaganda piece. So is Brian hack eat on testis here says you would think the U S would say something about the elevated rhetoric and call out China on the world stage. But this administration has no backbone whatsoever. No, they do not. It's ed is here, says now more than ever, we need a president with kahunas Biden clearly forgot where he left his . I really hope we vote for someone that could remind China that American men still have big Mahoney side note. China shouldn't forget. Yeah. Japan. It should not be trifled with. Yeah. He said that wants to know, says didn't under MacArthur . We agree to protect Japan with the whole military force. Yeah. We're allies. Now we're looking out for each other, Sharon quit. And he says, one part of me says that we'll all be lucky to live through this catastrophic regime. The other part says it's all political Kabuki theater. Very well could be. Let's see here. Ms . Lucky 21 says president Trump would be taking a stand right away. Oh my gosh. Yeah. They would've never said that. That that video would have never come out. Does it look, you know, there's something to be said about that, right? There's something to be said about that super iron Bob is here. That's outstanding. Says maybe if a party hadn't antagonized, the Russians hardcore, we could have an ally against Chinese. That's a good point. Right. Okay . What did they call that ? That, that the taunt of a man, I took a class. What class was that? I can't remember what it was, but yes. Right. You sort of move pieces around on a chess board. Okay. Bring the Russians to help neutralize the Chinese, but they're there , they're more aligned than any, you know , than either one of them are with the United States, because both of them have been apparently, you know, hacking , uh, our elections or something like that. Okay. Couple more questions. Before we wrap up out of here, says, Todd trout says, should we hunter in charge of China? Hm he'll make it a beautiful place. He can bring his oils and his canvases over there and just, you know, paint , uh , paint for peace and unity. Maybe he can solve our world problems. And we got two more. Joe Biden will claim that it is because the Chinese government regimes needs better COVID vaccines, or it could be global warming that comes from one Florida, man. Good to see you in Florida, man. And then lastly, but not leastly in the house we have hiding out, says maybe sleepy, Joe can't threaten nuclear attack because China doesn't have control of the nuclear football he's in China's pocket. He says there are credulous reports that Trump is still in control the nukes. Yeah. I I've heard a lot about that. I don't think there's any merit to any of that. Unfortunately, you know, the, the election went the way that it did and we all got to deal with the consequences. So I know that people are still, you know , talking a lot about that. Like there's something that might happen with the elections or the audits, and that might, you know, sweep Trump back into power. I don't know of any legal mechanism that would do that, but let's see. I think those are all . Thank you for that hiding out. And any other questions? I think we're good over there. Let's see what else is going on over in locals before we wrap it up for the day, say goodbye to a couple people over there. We've got Relic hunter or farmer's daughter, Joe. Snow's over there. Over here on YouTube. I'm seeing, I got Katie beam. We got Zulu says it says, Rob , I think he's talking to another Rob . We've got little Panda Cub. Christine's in the house. Oil smoke Jones hunters here. Oh, Hunter's here. Joel rollies here. Shelby, Indiana Jones and many others. And thank you all for keeping the chats lively and a lot of fun. Let's see what else we've got. So we've got, we had a bunch of new people sign up over the weekend. I apologize. I did not add them to the list for the day today . Going to do that tomorrow.
