    The Rise of the Experts

    The Left Progressive/Woke ideological class has confused and conflated political debate by redefining many words commonly used to communicate truth, resulting in falsehood. Therefore I offer the following definition, in the spirit of deception and obfuscation, just to call a spade a shovel:
    Expert: “X”, and unknown quantity; “spurt”, a drip under pressure.

    Honestly, Jim and Jeff are a dynamic duo elucidating truth, which resides in a realm beyond words, strangely resulting in an inability to speak the truth. As John Denver sang, “We all know the truth is hard to come by. And if I spoke the truth, that’s not quite true”. But one thing is for sure: the truth will be seen to work, while falsehood does not. What is is; what isn’t, isn’t. Alternatively, do what works; don’t do what doesn’t work. Do that (no easy thing), and your agency (an act of free will) will set you free.

    This guest talks a great deal, primarily providing a recap of what most of us who follow issues/the news already know. No real insights beyond that. Also, too much time spent on the Covid issues. Yes, there needs to be accountability for what took place, but the fatigue on the subject is real. We just want to move on the more pressing issues. At least for a while. The most disappointing thing of all is that nobody seems to want to associate the inflation issue with the primary cause which is the war in Ukraine. The completely unnecessary war created in 2014 by the Neo Con’s in Washington like Nuland. The world is being flushed down the toilet, hundreds of thousands of lives lost, all because some assholes want to paint the Russians as the ‘Klingons’ of the world. They don’t have a clue about the history of that part of the world, starting with Crimea. It’s sickening.

    Tucker should have gone deeper into the Yellen bailout. Obviously Yellen has no authority to bail out any bank other than seeing to it that the FDIC properly pays claims up to $250,000.

    Jim, please explore this in your blog.

    The Covid insights were interesting. Now I’m really mad!

    Good points, Snagglepuss. Plus, we ignore the many lessons of history at our peril. Each generation has an indefatigable urge to reinvent the wheel or leave its mark on future generations.

    Like all your podcasts, I enjoyed this one. Well done. One small critique I would offer on the technical side. Buy a compressor for the sound. It’s a little distracting what with the volume fluctuations. You don’t need to spend thousands for what you need to do. Google dbx 266xs Professional Audio Compressor/Gate Dynamic Processor on amazon, under two hundred new.

    Buy me a large Stetson hat, show me proof that any deep state actors have faced serious consequences and I will eat that hat.

    Thank you for reminding Jeffery of the “enormous” pressure Trump experienced, Jeffery seems to diminish the full assault from the deep state, media and academia accusing trump of caring more about the economy than lives.

    Oh geez. There is some real silliness out there, but its just dumb people making the wrong decisions.
