Get ready to hear the truth about America on a show that's not immune to the facts with your host, Dan Bongino.
All right, welcome to the show after a really long night last night at the White House. What was a spectacular speech? Just a couple of things I want to cover on today's show. Number one, what you're witnessing right now is not forget about a peaceful protest. There's no question. Forget peaceful Cantarell, peaceful out the window. This is not a protest at all. What you're witnessing. Is a mob, the mob takeover of America? That's what you're witnessing right now.
Secondly, I want to address from someone who was on the ground last night at President Trump's acceptance speech, the media version of what happened and what actually happened today show the Express VPN. Ladies and gentlemen, my online audience at Cerf's Online. They do it in peace of mind, peace of mind, knowing that their online activity is masked, using a VPN to express VPN dot com slash Bongino today. Pick up your VPN today. Welcome to the Bongino show.
Producer Joe is going to join us in the second half. It's been a really busy day with some technical issues. I want to get the show out there as soon as possible. Let me get right to it today. Show a bunch of our friends at BCM Bravo Company Manufacturing BCM for short. They build a professional great product built to combat standards as because BCM believes in the same level of protection should be provided to every American. Regardless if you're a private citizen or a professional Bravo company, manufacturing is not a sporting arms company.
They design, engineer and manufacture lifesaving equipment. BCM assumes that when a rifle leaves their shop, it'll be used in a life or death situation by responsible citizen, law enforcement officer or soldier. Overseas qualities, all that matters to them. Every component of a BCM rifle is hand assembled and tested by Americans in Harlem, Wisconsin, to a life saving standard. BCM has always put people before their products. They build their product because they feel it's a moral responsibility to provide Americans with life saving tools.
These are not sporting rifles. These are life saving pieces of equipment. The finest rifles out there. If, God forbid, you're involved in a scenario where it's not a paper target and someone's coming to do you harm, check them out and learn more about them today. A Bravo Company, M f g dotcom. That's Bravo Company m f g dot com or go to their YouTube channel, YouTube, YouTube, dotcom, excuse me, Bravo Company USA.
All right. To give myself a let's go today. A lot to talk about. So I'm going to get to this first one last night, as you know, I told you on the show, Paul and I attended the speech in the South Grounds in the White House where President Trump accepted the nomination for the Republican Party for a second term. The speech was magnificent. The ceremony was magnificent, I'm going to have some highlights from the speech, my voice a little worn out, sorry, hopefully recover a little bit by the end of the show.
But a lot of talk and a lot of photo taken last night. It was all great. The event was fantastic. Again, we'll get to that. But what was interesting about the event, if you ever wanted a microcosm of what this election 2020 is about, it was at that event last night, you were sitting there on the south grounds and you were listening to these speeches from these amazing Americans, from Ben Carson and Dawn. To President Trump, to vodka.
The Jeron everyone, the speeches were amazing. Muehler family. And, you know, it was playing in the background. On the streets. The lunatic mob was gathering. We didn't hear that from the media, did you? You can hear that from CNN that they were outside with bullhorns, air horns honking, horns playing like rage, music outside, trying to interrupt the event. Illegal? No. Evidence of an out of control, rage, rage mob that can't control themselves for a couple hours while American citizens trying to proudly represent their party in a free city, in a free country do it for a few hours, you couldn't you couldn't do that.
You had to come in and ruin it with your wives. And by the way. There was a tension, I could feel growing amongst the crowd as the night wore on and we closed in on 11 o'clock because the sounds outside got louder. Put yourself in our shoes. We're all sitting there and you hear in the screaming and yelling and these these raving lunatic banshees outside getting louder and louder and louder and, you know, you got to walk back to your hotel.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you haven't been to D.C. in the White House, there were no cabs waiting outside. You were walking through that and you knew you were going to run that gauntlet. And I'm telling you, by the end of the night, everybody knew they were going to run that gauntlet and they knew something else to. They knew they were in Washington, D.C., not New York City, during the Giuliani days or even the Bloomberg days, to be fair.
Where the RNC was in New York, the Republican National Convention, I remember I worked it as a Secret Service agent and there were isolated scrap of see there, but generally people walked around safely and had no problems at all because the NYPD did their job. I'm not faulting Metro, D.C. Metro last, the guys I met, the women I met, the cops here did the best they could do. But it is clear that their leadership, their political leadership, Muriel Bowser, had no intentions of keeping this event as secure as it needed to be.
None. Without further ado, this is after Paul and I left, so just to put you paint a picture, we walked out on 17th Street the minute you walked out, the minute you left the gate, literally, this is not even the minute. The second they open the gate, there were the big inaugural gates up. They were all waiting right there. Alleged protesters. It's interesting because I'm not really sure what they were protesting because they never told us what they were protesting.
What they did tell me was that my wife was a. So we're on terrestrial radio, so I have to watch my language. It rhymes with snitch class. My wife, Paula Paula, who's an immigrant from Colombia, she's a racist, too, according to the people outside, so was I. So that affects almost everyone who left. Interestingly, the people yelling that at us were white people. My wife's Colombian. So as we walked further down the street, one of them, what was the first thing they saw, Paul is behind me, was the first thing they told you, Paul with the hey, you with the white dress on, like, oh ho, learn to walk in heels or something like that.
Oh, yeah. That was that was cute. So you may say, well, Dan, what did you do? Folks, this is in time for fake tough guy stuff and a. Maybe we'll tell that story and the family friendly version of the show on another day where there may not be some legal consequences, but. You have to be careful. We're not the violent ones. I'm not going to be the one to initiate any type of violent action ever, it's not what I do.
It's never what I did. I, however, like any sane human being, will defend myself if you put your hands on me. Nobody did that. We walked about two or three more blocks being called racist, how many middle fingers you think we got? 50, 60 middle fingers or so one of them. I noticed that I actually started to pursue a little bit quick up, picked up the pace quite intensely after he figured out that the middle finger didn't go so well.
So let me turn the corner, we were really by ourselves. We're walking in front of St. John's Church and thankfully, about a minute after we met up, just coincidentally with Art Acevedo and a bunch of Border Patrol guys who were walking back to the same hotel they got. Oh, good point, the ladies. With this group were walking in as I play this video, there are two Asian women in their white 60s, maybe, I'm not sure.
Terrified they had just walked out of the event, they were all in their own. Art and the Border Patrol guys and Paula, Paula, grab them first and said, we need you to walk with us, because as we walk down the street, there was a rage mob of about 300 people getting ready to swarm. Well, a couple of them, a group of about 25, decided they were going to leave that rage mob and focus on us and follow us back.
Here's what happened to Robert. Yes, I do video in a school video to get him on tape. Give me a call. I did. I got him. I got I got him. I got to get on to go out with your man. And I did what I you to carry. But this.
If he gets what he wants to get him to go, I to watch my show on.
A lot in there, right? That's me in the beginning, calling them clowns and then tell them, Paul, I get these guys on tape, I'm going to make them famous tomorrow. A lot of talkers, by the way, a lot of Chatterbox's. Not a violent man, I never will be. It's no excuse for preemptive violence, none I'm sorry, not a civilized country. But if you want a dance, we can dance. They don't want to dance.
Please watch the video, go to my YouTube channel, YouTube dotcom slash Bongino, watch the video, the guy on the bike, the talker, the one who's talking most of the time, the one who says, not the guy who calls with the bleeps, by the way, where another moron in the background asking me if that was my. Snitch Klaas wife, you can figure out what he was really saying, we had to bleep that out and the guy on the bike is the one saying to the other guys, to the to the back of them, because they only attack like wolves in packs, except they're not wolves are like puppy dogs saying we're going to follow these mother farms all the way back to the hotel, which they did.
To his credit, he wasn't kidding. But what was interesting about bigeye is he kept telling me how he wanted to fight me. But when given the opportunity to get off the bike and actually do it, he never took that shot. I wonder why. Neither did the guy who called my wife A. Snitch class. So let me give you a couple takeaways from this takeaway, number one. These guys and women are total cowards and chumps, what they do and when you experience this for yourself, you'll see how they act, they attack packs.
One of them will come over like the guy on the bike. He didn't say anything, the guy, but he did. By the way, this one minute, this went on for almost a half an hour. He didn't say a word until other people, he didn't even know they all know what to do, it's like they have this hive mind, like Borg from Star Trek, like programming. They know they have to attack in packs because they are legitimately chumps.
When you stare them in the face, they look down. They won't do anything. As yellow haired guy last night found out about, I'll have to tell you that story another time. They got to my for my friend, you know who you are from the Secret Service who got in between me and yellow haired guy. They're total cowards when you confront them totally. Mark my words, they don't have a shred of courage or dignity, but they do attack in packs and it gives them like collective power because they know that if it breaks bad for them, their friends will hit you with a skateboard.
So what they do is as you walk down the street, the big guy comes out, he like kind of sniffs out he is. Thank you, Paula, for the screenshot. There's bigeye. We told him we make you famous. Here you go, brother. Here's your moment in the sun. Everybody gets their 15 minutes like this life loser. So bigeye kind of signals to people, again, they don't know each other, they just know they're all paid to be their.
Or paid off working for someone who's paid to be there in protest. And then they like and then they come over and you see them coming over like like moths to a flame, and as it builds from two to five to 10 to about 20 where they're comfortable, all of a sudden that's when it starts coming out. Is that your snitch class wife will follow you to a hotel mother? I don't know what did the guy tell me he's going to put my caboose.
He didn't say so I said right here. And that's when I started. That's me laughing at him in the beginning. Remember this one on for a half an hour? I told the guy where I was staying by guy, he shockingly never showed up on the way. Another takeaway from this. These are not protests. Listen to me. These are not protests. Listen to me again, not only these are not peaceful, prothro that out the window.
These are not protests. They're not protests. We saw these people, some of them leaving our hotel we were staying in this morning at six o'clock. Why are they staying in a hotel? How did they get there? The hotel suite, the hotel we stayed in wasn't cheap. Did we not see three of them this morning, Paula, walking out? Yes, we did. These these are not protests. This is a paid, organized mob of lunatics.
This is not a protest. I don't want to hear another peep from another liberal talking head who hasn't walked through these crowds, what we experienced last night with those two women in their 60s scared. Out of their minds, I was going to say something else. I don't want to hear another damn peep out of your sick, disturbed, disgusting mouth about peaceful protest maybe during the day, these nighttime protests are a rage mob period. And when you live it and you see it, you'll never see it again.
These are paid, organized, sophisticated people who know exactly what they're doing. They live relatively meaningless lives until they found a collective cause being paid to destroy the lives of others or organize other people to destroy the lives of others. They don't stand for anything, they attacked Senator Rand Paul last night. Screaming about Brianna Taylor, you know, Brianna Taylor, she was killed in an incident with the police. Well, Brianna Taylor. Didn't Rand Paul, isn't he one of the authors of the Brianna Taylor Act that's supposed to pull no knock warrants?
Yeah, he is. So just to be clear, the Marxist terrorist BLM folks that were there last night. Attacked a guy demanding he say her name, Briana Taylor, despite the fact that Rand Paul is the author of the Briana Taylor Act to stop no knock warrants. Tell me again how this is a protest. Marie Harf on Fox, can you tell me what they're must puffy peafowl? You walk through that. You want to go through what we went through last night?
Brian Mast, congressman, double amputee, lost his legs in combat, went through last night. Yeah, yeah, yeah, is missing his legs from the body, his prosthetics confronted by the rage mob last night. Secondly, I told you how to dress first. That these are not protests, they are not is they paid organized rage mob. Secondly, ladies and gentlemen, the media is living in an alternate universe. Ignore them completely. Just on this note, they will continue to tell you what happened last night, I saw some reporting.
Oh, well, no big deal. What happened to Rand Paul? He wasn't actually attacked. They didn't put hands on him. Folks, if you walk through what we walked through last night, believe me, you'd be singing a different tune. But secondly, about the event, I heard some commentary afterwards out of the president's speech was this and maybe it was a little long for a speech, but you didn't see the speech? We did. We were there.
It was received incredibly, incredibly by everyone there. The energy there was through the roof. It's an outdoor event. It's never going to sound like a thunderous indoor arena. I was there. I'm telling you, if it was a dull event, I'd tell you I don't see any reason to hide it. Folks, there were times in that event where people were in tears. The speeches by the Marine Corps veteran who changed her life happens to be a black female, which again, doesn't matter to conservatives.
She was there last night after she gave you must have taped her speech. People were crying, hugging her, giving people standing ovations as they came in. One of the guys in the speech with the with those earrings who claimed he was a used to be a Bernie Sanders supporter. He was there. He got a big round of applause. He walked out. Now he supports Trump. The energy there was through the roof. When Ian Dawn spoke, I got a clip of that will play at the end.
Folks, it was grass and you could have heard a pin drop. Outside of the rage mob outside that was still playing their bullhorns. While the wife of a slain former police officer killed during the riots was giving her speech. Yet the media portrayed as some kind of delivered speech, fell flat. You weren't at the event I was at or you were, and you're just lying about it. The latter is probably more true. Let's get to the highlights, his speeches are important.
Just a couple of quick ones from. Oh, yeah. Oh, thank you, Miss Paul. This is important. A huge thank you. This is why it's great having a producer who can read your mind. She's your wife. It works with. Art Acevedo, Brandon Venrock and others and the Border Patrol folks out there last night, this is a picture go to my YouTube dotcom bungeni to see it. Also a congressman from Texas. Forgive me, I'm drawing and you've been up all night.
But this is the crew that escorted the two women, by the way, the two Asian women I was telling you about there. If you're looking at YouTube, they're off to the right. Right there, you'll see these brave Border Patrol folks that are out there. They walk back with this crew and there's me in the middle. Paula was kind enough to take the picture and a couple of other folks. But these are the folks there's what about five or six women in there who were being harassed, harassed?
Screamed at, yelled that being called racist being followed. But yes, this guy, bike guy and this raving lunatic woman, by the way, on the right, who proceeded to tell my wife, if you go back and rewind the video that she was ashamed of, that my wife was a woman. Well, we're ashamed, you a human being. She's a little white girl, by the way, which again, doesn't matter to me, but that black lives are supposed to matters most care about minority lives.
Right. That's it's interesting. My wife's kind of Colombian immigrant and little white girl from Washington, D.C. is screaming in my wife's face how she's embarrassed that my wife's a woman. Weird how that happens. And it. We told you we make you famous. Here's your 15 minutes. It's not the kind of famous you wanted. Maybe it is probably celebrate being a loser. All right, let me go to Trumper. I'm going to go a couple of cuts because the Trump speech was long time.
I'm going to play a few cuts. It was really good. Very well. Well done. And then two more, which were really just the. Crescendo of an incredible event hat tip to the RNC that put this on. Here's clip number one from Donald Trump last night, where he talks about optimistically how we're going to write the next chapter of American history again, which was a great foil considering the liberal lunatics were raging outside with their rage, music and bullhorns.
Check this out.
This November, we must turn the page forever on this failed political class. The fact is, I'm here. What's the name of that bill? But I'll say it differently. The fact is we're here and they're not. To me, one of the most beautiful buildings anywhere in the world that is not a building, it's a home, as far as I'm concerned, not even a house.
It's a home, wonderful place with an incredible history, but it's all because of you. Together, we will write the next chapter of the great American story, folks.
You were there last night. It was amazing, I looked at Paul at a couple of points, we looked at each other and I whispered in her ear just to turn her head. One of you and me, we both have bad ears. So if we don't talk in the right ear, nobody hears each other. I said, we'll tell our grandkids one day we were here. Right around that time, when that part of the speech happened, a chant broke out four more years, and wouldn't you say, Paula, that was probably the most magical portion of the night.
It was amazing. There were a ton of highlights from President Trump's speech, so, again, in the interest of time, I'm going to play another one. I thought really, given what happened was last night with the rage mob coming for us. I thought this was very well said, check this out. Always remember they're coming after me because I am fighting for you. That's what's happening.
He doesn't bend the knee, the president. He refuses to bend the knee. And that's why they hate him. They're used to Republicans backing down and cowering every time the media writes a back story, you won't do it. And it drives them nuts. The speech was really, really good. I don't know what universe the media is living in, where they thought the speech was, the speech was fantastic, fantastic. I'm at length, OK, maybe it was a little long for a speech, but there wasn't a ten minute period of that where people weren't completely into it.
I'm really sorry. I don't know what you what you saw, but there was more last night. And these are some of the speeches that led up to President Trump's very well done speech the other night. This one, ladies and gentlemen. It was not a dry eye in the house for this one, there was a little bit of an awkward moment during the production. If you were there where someone had told the first family to come out in the middle, it was weird.
I felt bad for them because I don't think they knew what was playing. But when they came out, I don't know. If you watched the event on C-SPAN, you'll notice this an awkward moment where the kids come out. They're introduced. Welcome the first family, I say, and the applause is muted. It wasn't muted because of them. It was muted because I think everybody was so emotionally and wrapped in this video of Kayla Mueller, who was taken hostage in Syria, raped, tortured and killed.
Her family was given their speech and it was just it was the only odd moment of the night where. You'll see what I mean, because this was what we were all watching when he came out and it was just heart wrenching.
All Kayla wanted was to make it home. We are still working to find her and God willing, we will bring her home. Kayla was born a miracle. We were told we would never have a second child, but God gave us Kayla and she gave herself to the world. Eight months into Kayla's captivity, another hostage was able to smuggle out a letter Kayla had written. As we read it, we could see that God was holding her in his arms.
In her words, she felt tenderly cradled in free fall. She also wrote, I have been shown in darkness, light and have learned that even in prison, one can be free. I am grateful. I have had many hours to think how. Only in your absence have I finally, at twenty five years old, come to realize your place in my life. None of us could have known it would be this long. But no, I am also fighting for my side in the ways I am able and I have a lot of fight left inside of me.
I am not breaking down and I will not give in no matter how long it takes.
That was tough to watch. Utter silence in the crowd. So now you understand the case, it's reported disingenuously by the media. When when Don Jr. and the and the family came out, they came out in the middle of that and that's why the applause was muted. It had nothing to do with the first family. Again, things if you're not there and you don't see it, you'll probably have some media to go, oh my gosh, Don Junior and Eric and Tiffany and and the family walked out and nobody even clapped for them.
That's not what happened. People were watching that on the screen, the Mueller family and just. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. We go to one final cut and I got to get a lot more news today to Jacob Blak story of Jacob Blake in Minnesota. That story's gotten. Very, very interesting as more details are starting to come out of that, the NBA story, so don't go anywhere, it's really going to be a loaded show.
But my final clip of the day, there was so much last night, Alice Johnson and others, but. I I don't think anyone in the crowd, because I spoke to a lot of people last night, the cops, Border Patrol guys who were there, everyone people came up and said hello. I think it was unanimous that this was the most emotional, gut wrenching, you know, like after I just watched that. Yeah, after last night, the most gut wrenching moment, it was unanimous.
This was an dawn. And Dawn is the wife of slain former police officer David Dawn. David was killed in St. Louis protecting his friend's pawn shop during one of the riots, responding to an alarm. Was killed, shot dead on the streets. This is just a small piece of what his wife had to say about David during last night and trust me. It was on grass and there you could have heard a pin drop on the grass, there was not a sound in the crowd as this was playing.
After I'd gone to bed, David received a call from Lee's alarm company. The front door of the pawnshop had been breached. This time he didn't wake me up to tell me. He probably knew I would have tried to stop him or insist on going with him.
As I slept, looters were ransacking the shop. They shot and killed David in cold blood and then live streamed his execution and his last moments on earth. David's grandson was watching the video on Facebook in real time, not realizing he was watching his own grandfather dying on the sidewalk.
Tough to listen to. Really tough to. But it really summed it up for a lot of the people there. You have a choice coming up. The rage mob, the chaos, the death, the destruction, the celebration of it. Or order, liberty, freedom, optimism, law. Civility. You have a big choice coming up.

All right. So, you know, it's Friday, so we got a stack in all the news of the week we had we had missed during the prior shows. Given that the RNC happened and it was loaded, we had a tragic hurricane this week. We've had more street riots. It's just been a loaded week. But you may have missed this story, which has since changed since I was going to talk about it yesterday, Washington Times. So the NBA National Basketball Association, you know, the same NBA that thinks it's great to kneel for the flag to promote social justice, but doesn't seem to give a damn about Chinese concentration camps, you know, like death camps and stuff, you know?
Yeah. You haven't given her you missed that NBA. You missed that story. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know how, Joe, how that keeps happening. The NBA and I don't know what's going on in China. Don't understaff camps, concentration camps right over there. But yes, let's let's protest the the shooting of Jacob Blake before the facts are even out. I'll get to that. Washington Times the other day report Lakers and Clippers vote to boycott the NBA season, Victor Morgan, of course, they've changed their mind a little bit since then.
But I got to tell you, I know about you, Joe. I'm all for this boycott. Go ahead. Go right ahead. Go right now. I don't know what kind of a business or social justice the decision that is. Now, just for a second, I know be talking to liberals here. I know this is hard for them, but so if you and I wanted to make a difference with the show, kind of our purpose, first time we started this, we never thought it would turn into the show.
It did. Which thought we were kind of doing some good stuff. And Virgil was a weekend job. When we first start, we never thought it would become some kind of career option. Yeah, yeah. You think one day it'd be a good idea? Just not a trick question. If I say, Joe, I think we really want to make a difference in the twenty twenty election. Let's boycott the show and not do it anymore. The model of success model for leftists.
Of course it is. But for same people like us, it's not. So listen, if you want to boycott yourself, I even took a note. This is great. Go right ahead. Matter of fact, I'd like to double and triple down. What do you think of this suggestion? I think you should cancel the whole season. I think you should cancel every other season and cancel the league, too. You should really stick it to us that one hundred percent kicks.
And while you're at it, by the way, it's the only way that you cancel the whole league, cancel the teams, the leagues, everything. I have another suggestion. The NFL should join you, boycott everything, boycott to cancel the league, boycott the NFL. This is great. But in the insane leftist universe where liberals live, I'm really sure this makes sense. Again, don't worry about China and the whole concentration camp thing and death camps and communism and, you know, that kind of stuff, forced abortions and that stuff.
Don't worry about it. It's all about a shooting in Kenosha you didn't know anything about. So go ahead. Yes. And cancel the whole league. I am with you. Speaking of which. So new facts have emerged. In the use of force incident against Jacob Blak in Wisconsin. The shooting you've heard about that has led to multiple, multiple nights of rioting, death in the streets, you know that. You know, when people talk about law and order, they understand the law part, but as I said the other day, they often neglect the order.
But what does order mean? They're talking about order like paint by numbers, they're talking about order, order is process. An orderly society has a process to handle grievances, to handle violations of the law, to handle violations of your civil rights. We have that in the United States. Luckily, we have very good policing here, the best in the world in the United States. But errors are tragically made. Sometimes criminality takes place. It's not an error, sometimes it's outright criminal.
We've had incidents with policing that have involved substantial criminality. Unfortunately, I worked in the seven five precinct where they had a whole corruption ring. They broke up before I got there. Thankfully, in the United States, policing is excellent, that's relatively rare. But we have a process, so when people see law and order, what they mean by orders, they mean a process. So the process when someone like Jacob Blake is shot by police officers in an incident is to wait for the information to come out in a process and investigative, deliberative, sane, rational process.
Find out what the facts are, God forbid, left this. We don't want the facts out there. And then when we have a set of facts subjected to another set of processes, a fact finding process, then an administrative process within the police department, here are our documented use of force rules where those rules followed again, order process. If they weren't followed, then there will be sanctions, either a termination or some punishment from the administrative police entity.
If it's more severe than an administrative violation and its potential criminality. Potential criminality, alleged criminality process. Then we will have investigators, as they are looking into in Wisconsin to determine if the act was not just an administrative violation, but potentially a criminal one. That's what's happening now. When you forfeit order and process and you become the NBA doesn't really care at all about wigger death camps in China, forced abortions and sterilizations, that kind of stuff, they don't want to talk about that.
They want to kneel for the American flag because of a shooting in Wisconsin. They don't even have any of the facts yet on. But maybe it's a good idea to take a step back and allow order and process. The playout. Why do we do that? Because while the city of Wisconsin was Kenosha, Wisconsin, the town was burning to the ground. In many cases, literally. New facts came out, which if you would have allowed the order part of process in the law and order Axium to follow through, you may not have embarrassed yourself by coming out and insisting again that the police officers involved were murderers without any evidence to suggest that is, in fact, true.
Well, what's come out, this is one of the scenarios where he used the Daily Mail because they have the longest headlines ever, but in this case, the headline tells the whole story. So be in the show notes. UK Daily Mail Wisconsin Attorney General Veals reveals police recovered a weight, a knife from the driver's side floor of Jacob Blake's car. And says one cop shot him seven times, they responded to a 911 one call from Blake's girlfriend.
Now, we're not going to make the mistake leftist media hacks, racial instigators and clueless NBA morons who can't even effectively boycott themselves. While they ignore Chinese death camps, we're not going to make that mistake and say, oh, nothing was done wrong here, let's forget it. No, no, no. I don't know that. I do know I'm waiting to hear more facts on the case, because the video is not clear, unlike other cases where the video has been painfully clear.
The video spoke for itself in many cases. Regardless of the background scenario, the video told most of the story, you need it, the video doesn't tell the story. The video we've seen of the shooting of Jacob Blake is taken from a distance and you can't see inside the car where it now appears, according to the attorney general of Wisconsin and the Daily Mail's subsequent reporting that Jacob Blake may have been reaching for a knife or there may have been a weapon there, a knife on the floorboard.
We in Jesse Waters show discussing this this weekend. Now, again, let's do facts and process, so ladies and gentlemen, on the process side, which matters because I believe in law and order, not media hysteria like these lunatics who want to see the country burned to the ground. When you're dealing with a use of force incident. Every police officer has a tailored slightly differently to its police department's rules, but the general rule. Of use of force incidents using deadly force is this.
And by the way, so we can establish bona fides here, because I know there's some moron, 19 year old Media Matters, a lunatic watching this, who sit in his mom's basement with a Snuggies who hasn't left this basement in seven years and probably hasn't shaved either. I actually taught a lot of this stuff in the Secret Service Academy and was a police officer myself. And I went to the New York City Police Academy twice, once as a cadet, once as a recruit, just establishing bona fides there.
I know I don't have the knowledge you do play in your video games in your mom's basement. I get that. But maybe, just maybe you'll allow us to talk. We know a little bit a little bit tiny. The only question when a deadly use of force is involved on the administrative side. In other words, did the police officer obey the use of force? Guidelines he was taught is generally this. Does the police officer have a reasonable, articulable?
Believe. That a serious physical injury or death was about to be caused himself or others when he used deadly force, can he reasonably state that he used deadly force and articulate why reasonable and articulable for, again, the Media Matters type listening? Because I know they have I know they have to get dictionaries and the sources out to understand basic English. Can he reasonably articulate that he believed the subject was about to cause a serious physical injury or death to the officer or someone else?
Now, if the story and the reporting by the Daily Mail turns out to be true that there was a knife on the floor, we will wait for the facts. Unlike media lunatics, you have a number of things. Ladies and gentlemen, that may indicate that this use of force, however tragic and they are, may have been administratively and legally justified. We will see. What are those additional facts, the subject had a criminal history. Oh, that doesn't matter.
No, folks, it does if you are reasonably a reasonable person is trying to articulate why you may think a person might harm them during an interaction, seriously or kill them what they've done in the past, if you're aware of it. Matters. Now, why would the police officers be aware of this? You think it's just possible when they got the nine one one call, which they did? And they ran the name of the subject that they saw he had a criminal history.
I'm just asking questions, you know, fact finding stuff. Don't dare call me a journalist, that's an insult, but we do facts here. That's why I don't want you to call me a journalist because they don't actually do that stuff. You think that might be reasonable and articulable, that you thought he might hurt you because he had a history, a criminal history in the past? Again, only if you're doing facts, you think the fact that there was a nine one one call matters.
If you're a leftist, no, but if you're a sane person, of course, that matters. The police officer in Wisconsin didn't just find Jacob Blake on the street. It wasn't a random car stop. They were responding to a request for help. They wanted Blake out of their house, the people who called. You think that matters when you're reasonably trying to articulate why you think your life is in danger again? Only if you're a sane person, not if you're a leftist or a journalist.
You may say, well, that sounds like enough right there, at least to reasonably articulate why you think your life was in danger, maybe not the engagement with the fire. Oh, there's more. You now have a noncompliant subject who will not follow any commands, who they've already tasered, and that hadn't worked, so they've used the proper escalation of force to. Verbal commands, hands on taser, God forbid, deadly force, if warranted, they didn't jump to the firearm.
This isn't Tombstone. Nobody pulled some kind of like, you know, OK Corral shooting incident on them. They clearly escalated, you have a noncompliant subject, doesn't respond to verbal commands, doesn't respond to physical grabbing and restraining, doesn't respond to a taser, and then keeps walking towards a vehicle where it's alleged there's a knife on the floor. But again, NBA guys, with all of your expertise, by the way, and use of force and believe me, I say that the most sarcastic way possible with all of your expertise.
Yeah. Tell us again how you should boycott yourselves in the whole season by ignoring or ignoring the death camps in China. Go ahead. Boycott your whole league. Nobody cares. I haven't watched the game since the Knicks lost to the San Antonio Spurs. You may care. Great. I'm not telling you what to watch or not, but I don't care one bit. Boycott the league forever. Don't care. I got a better idea when you were all out of jobs because you're so dopey you can't even figure out how to boycott yourselves.
Why don't you go become a cop, serve the public and go through use of force training, go through a fat simulator ammunition exercise in a Hogan's Alley. Why don't you try that? Get back to us later about how you know so much about the use of force. Of course you won't you'll humiliate yourselves and embarrass yourselves, because that's what you'll do. Now, of course, all this is egged on by media morons, which we pointed out yesterday.
And I said to you yesterday, I would find the clip of the disturbed Chris Cuomo from CNN tricep extensions guy. How the media yesterday, Don Lemon from CNN is finally starting to figure out that maybe they should stop talking up riots in the street and protecting them. Because why? Because if you saw yesterday's show, and I encourage you to watch it, Don Lemon said, well, the polls are turning. So, Joe, let's not worry about riot in the streets because people are getting hurt and their lives are being torn apart while their cities are burning, the polls are turning.
That's. That's Don Lemon's reasoning. But that's not exactly what to confuse. Chris Cuomo from the same network said a little while ago. When Chris was confused about why we should be peaceful when we assemble and protest in the street, this is a real quote, by the way. It's not manipulable, really. Sure.
But check this out and please show me where it says the protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful.
OK. Want to show them, remember ramen noodles eating guy? That was hilarious, that clip. Yeah, it's right here if you'd like to check this out. It's called the bill, a bill of Rights. Amendment one, or as Chris Cuomo probably say, Amendment I. Let me just read that for Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press or the right of the people peaceably, peaceably.
Joe, my reading that right peaceably to assemble. Yeah. Yeah. Petition the government for redress of grievances. Oh yeah. OK. How can you cue Cuomo up again, is that possible? Will I totally shut down your Lifestream computer? If I do that, we'll get to something. If you're not watching the YouTube. My eyes turn red when I start crying because I'm laughing at my own jokes, which you should never, ever do. But again, Cuomo is confused why you shouldn't be allowed to like what riot in the street?
I'm curious as to what he's saying. Play that sucker again, if you don't mind.
And please show me where it says the protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful.
Course, we just put up one more time the Constitution of the United States, which clearly says that the Bill of Rights just checking again, Joe, or the right of the people peaceably, peaceably to assemble peaceably. So let me read that again. Let's say the Chris Cuomo version, appendix sixty two or the right of the people to riot as a Senate. Does it say that anywhere? I'm just checking. Is there a CNN version of the Constitution that you're aware of, Armacost anywhere?
No, no, no. No, there isn't. Thank you, Paula. Are you aware of this? Paula is not aware of a CNN version and an appendix to the Constitution either. Very good. Very good. I'm not aware of it either for. The same folks out there. Of course, Chris Cuomo is going to run away from all of that. Do some tricep extensions or whatever, he needs that shake, we remember the shake weight.
Oh yeah. Yeah, those commercials were a little weird. Yes, remember those.
Oh, yeah. The shake weight. Everybody's like, yeah. Exactly, for those of you side, you know exactly what I'm talking about, Google those commercials, you get a kick out. All right, let me get to my last sponsor and I got to get to some other news I missed, including Nancy Pelosi just dropping a tactical nuke yesterday, trial balloon travel. I got a lot of missed this one. I find a sponsor, the Patriot Mobile.
Ladies and gentlemen, sadly, America's students are caught up in the politics of coronavirus and their education hangs in the balance to support the next generation of freedom loving Americans. Patriot Mobile is running a school days promotion, but a great idea until September 12th. Choose either a free phone or a free month of service when you switch to America's only conservative cell phone carrier, Patriot Mobile. Plus, instead of charging hidden fees and funding left wing propaganda, Patriot Mobile will donate a portion of your bill to students for Life was better than you.
Yet the same reliable nationwide service and support of company's shares, your values supports our Constitution, you know, the one Kromah doesn't know about and puts people before profits switching. Keep your phone number, bring your own phone, or just buy anyone. Call 911 to Patriot. That's nine seven two Patriot or visit Patriot Mobile Dotcom and use the promo code. Dan, when you choose a free month of service or a free phone, veterans and first responders save even more.
Nine seven two Patriot. That's nine seven two Patriot or visit Patriot Mobile Dotcom.
Dan, go today. All right. So we do have a lot of stuff, also a lot of material. That I want to pile in on this Friday show, as is always the case. So there a new study out about the coronavirus. We haven't touched that a little while. Of course, that's a story that's going to be with us, sadly, for a long time. But if you're not following on social media, the great Phil Kerpen with a K Care RPN, you're making a huge mistake.
His account is just a bevy of high quality information designed to give you accurate data on the lethality danger system where we stand with the coronavirus, unlike media reports, you know, journalism, dreaded air quotes that's designed to redline you would panic all the time, scare you, and to politicize the event as often as possible. Philes actual information like studies and stuff, studies and things like that. Facts that I know that's tough for the left. But so I found this on Phil's Twitter account here, an interesting study that just came out.
Assessing the age specificity of infection, fatality rates for covid-19, systematic review, meta analysis and public policy implications, a meta analysis is a study of other studies meta now and analyses other studies and puts them together in a meta analysis. That's what it is. A meta analysis can be very good, very robust because you reviewing other people's work, comparing it to other people's work. And of course, the larger the sample size in these data over multiple studies.
The more. Vibrant and strong, the data and its findings are going to be, you always want to look at a good quality meta analysis. Well, now we have one. And you say, gosh, from everything we've heard from the media about the coronavirus and a decision, we're going to lock it down, just lock it down or you're all going to die. You would think now that we have high quality data on the lethality of it, that we'd be able to make risk reward decisions that we make every day in life.
You know, I haven't said it in a while, but I'll say it again for you new listeners and we get new ones every week. Sorry, Paula. I mean, to move around too much, but squirming a bit today. Everything in life is risk reward. There are no good decisions with coronavirus. There are bad decisions with coronavirus and there are worse decisions. The only good decision is how do we wipe it out tomorrow? We can't.
So that's off the table. The question is, how do we deal with it where we have to do things we won't like? And then how do we deal with it in a really, really bad way that we're going to do more things we don't like that cause us more problems than if we just would have done the things we didn't like that were less bad then the bad things. In other words, you have bad decisions and worse decisions. Clearly now the decision to shut down the economy in our schools was dreadfully bad.
We did that, and I even give some early acting, both Democrat and Republican politicians, a benefit of the doubt early because we didn't have data. There were stories out there. Coronavirus know if you're under 55, you could be dead tomorrow. Well, you could be. But the question is, how likely is that you could be dead from a lightning strike? But we don't shut down the state of Florida, which is the lightning strike capital, where when there's a rainstorm, why don't we do that?
We don't do that because the risk is low. And if you shut down the state every time there's a lightning storm, everybody would be starving to death. So you must be wondering if we have all this data now, why do we continue, Democrats and others this down schools lock down everything, keep everything shut down. Here's the big takeaway from this study that should really ring your bell, not translate this chart for you really easy. He compares the fatality rate among certain age groups from the coronavirus to the same fatality rate from automobile accidents and other accidents in general.
In other words, it asks the question, what are your chances of dying from the coronavirus as compared to your chances of dying in an automobile accident or any accident in general? Well, you would think, Joe, if we lock down the economy, we don't lock down the economy to prevent automobile accidents, right? So you think to yourself, well, if it's roughly the same, then why are we locking down the economy for coronavirus? Exactly.
Here's an interesting data point if you're forty five or younger. The chances of you dying in an automobile accident. Our Lord Lester, about half than the chance of dying from coronavirus, but the chance of dying from an accident in general are far less. Look at this, look at these numbers. If you're zero to thirty four, you have the exact same chance of dying from coronaviruses as you do of dying in an automobile accident. Folks. These numbers are so small, the point of this chart, if you look at it, please go to my YouTube and check it out.
These numbers are so small. That you're talking about comparable risks in or around a little bit higher or a little bit lower if you're forty five or younger, between dying from a coronavirus, dying in an automobile accident and dying from an accident. General. Which would ask and beg the obvious question, if the data is showing the risks are roughly similar, a little bit higher, a little bit lower, depending on the age group coronavirus, automobile accident attacks in general, why did we take such a non commensurate, outrageous response even now, such as shutting down the entire economy, kicking our kids out of school?
I'm just asking, based on the data that are roughly similar, if you don't prevent 16 year olds from driving who have a risk of, sadly, a car accident, injury or death. And that risk is substantial in some case, depending on if you don't do that, we don't shut that down. Why are we shutting down the economy for a comparable risk of death from coronavirus? Why? I'm just asking. Oh, Dan, there are different things, the risk calculations are in different.
The risk of you dying from coronavirus in any age group, forty five is very, very, very small. We're talking about zero point zero rates of death and fatality. The answer is because the left has asked to politicize everything. They want schools shut down for teachers unions so they can leverage the school shutdowns to get what they want. We have economies being shut down, just the damage. The general citizenry hoping that it hurts President Trump at the polls.
The only explanation, folks, Tavis. All right, one more quick story here. This is an important one, so, ladies, gentlemen, you can always count on Nancy Pelosi to flow problems, not to trial balloons in politics.
You know what they are?
It's when they put out someone known for being a radical who's from a radical district, i.e., Nancy Pelosi. You put a political leader out there. I mean, I use that term leader use loosely in the Freudian slip uselessly, loosely in the case of Nancy Pelosi. But Pelosi's relatively safe. She's from a San Francisco district. It's probably a D plus 20 Cook PVI district partisan value index, meaning she's never going to lose as long as she runs.
Because there's no political consequence to Nancy Pelosi for saying ridiculous things, she also speaker of the House, I mean, obviously. They have people like Pelosi go out there and do what we call political problems, where they float really ridiculous ideas, knowing there's no political penalty for them, keeping the people who would have a political penalty, swing state Democrats and others try to follow me, keeping them safe. And they float the trial balloon with these dumb ideas to gauge.
Media response. And if they're not roundly laughed at and humiliated, which most of the time she is Pelosi. They'll go with it, it's kind of like they poke you a little bit, see when you respond, they pop up next to me, the bear eats you. You don't poke anymore. But if you keep poking a bear and the bears hibernate, doesn't wake up, you just keep on poking, poke some more, poke some more and steal his food next.
So they put Pelosi out there to float this gem of a trial balloon. Yesterday and I'm actually. I'm a little surprised because this idea is so ridiculous and Joe Biden is now collapsing in the polls that you would think. There, hide them in the basement strategy. You would think even a radical like Pelosi would figure out this isn't working anymore. We tried it with Hillary. Remember, she couldn't find Wisconsin Hillary. Hillary Clinton, who didn't even campaign in a lot of swing states, the Hyrum strategy worked so well in 2016, you would think they'd figure out, given Biden's polls, a collapsing watch yesterday's show, if you doubt what I'm talking about, polls are collapsing for, but they figure out this isn't working.
But Joe Biden is such an awful candidate. Pelosi's floating this idea, I myself just don't tell anybody I told you this, especially don't tell Joe Biden. I don't think that there should be any debates. I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody and has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts.
Listen to me. This woman is not stupid. Nancy Pelosi. Don't make that mistake. She's not the brilliant tactician people give her credit for, she's actually kind of a dunce political strategy wise, but she's not dumb sometimes she just puts too much faith in the media covering for her. She did something very smart there, I don't know if you all caught it, you catch it. So she suggests that Joe Biden shouldn't debate. But why she do it?
OK, folks, it's obvious why she's doing that. She's doing it because Joe Biden is going to get absolutely destroyed in a debate with Donald Trump. The guy didn't even know where he is. Folks, I'm sorry, the cognitive decline is evident. He's going to get wrecked and Pelosi and everyone else are panicking. I told you, I have a source, so I need to say this again. Some of you, Mr.. It's not who you think it is.
But I have good sources were telling me Joe Biden's cognitive collapse. It's getting worse by the day. I'm not kidding. That they're genuinely worried each day what's going to happen the next day. You can take that to the bank, and it's not just one person either. Pelosi knows this to. By the time the debates come around in just a few weeks, they're not even sure where Joe Biden's going to be upstairs. Yet they're so terrified, even though their polls are collapsing, that they know their only option is to take their chances with the 2016 hide in the basement strategy.
So what do they do? They send her out there, the Biden team. No, no, Dan, she said, don't tell Joe I said this. Joe Horsey said that's her that's her dipsy do flip through the three card monte guy in Times Square from nineteen eighties, the shell game five of the being found. Remember that? Yeah, of course. This is Biden's team's idea. You think she just randomly threw that out there? Now she plays the dipsy do flip through with the press, who of course will protect her.
And says, don't tell Joe I said no, but Joe really would Darma cost. Joe, Joe, Joe Biden really wants the debate. Don't tell him I said that. Oh, OK. Sure, he does, sure. Folks there terrified. I'm going to leave that there because I want to if I don't cover this fabulous story, I'll make it quick, everyone, if people get upset, I've been teaching the whole week, but just trust me when I tell you that idea came from the Biden campaign, not Pelosi.
They had Pelosi do it because there's no political risk. And they said, do me a favor, insulate Biden and just say something weird. Like, don't tell Joe I said this even on my national television. All right, but talk about the story all week, I'll make it fast, but it's important, it's an entire chapter in my book and it asks the question I find just. Incredible at this point that nobody has addressed this other than Margot Cleveland at the Federalist, who's quoted extensively in my new book, Follow the Money Beyond October 6th.
Why is nobody talking about Steven Soman, this figured case? Seriously, outside of me and Margo Cleveland and the Spygate researchers, no one in the media has mentioned this guy's name barely at all. Do a media search, you're only going to see the same names come up. Margot has a great piece. It's in the earlier show notes from earlier in the week, FBI lawyers guilty pleas suggest spig corruption goes way higher. Remember the FBI lawyer, Kevin Kleinsmith, he pled guilty to altering a document about Carter Page.
Carter Page was a member of the Trumpton. When he left the Trump team, he was spied on, he was spied on because he was a member of the Trump team. In order to spy on him, they cited the FBI, his contacts with Russians. The problem was his contacts with Russians. Carter Page were at the behest. Of the CIA. Our CIA. Meeting those contacts were not only not nefarious, but were in fulfilling a patriotic duty to help the country go get Russians who were spies.
Kind of weird, right? Yeah. They spied on them for helping the CIA. Yeah. Yeah, they did. Well, then the CIA warned the FBI and say, hey, listen. You guys are spying on this guy using a FISA warrant for dealing with Russians, but he was doing it at our behest. Oh, yeah, they did. They sent the FBI an email in a memo August 17th of twenty sixteen. They also followed up a year later in twenty seventeen in the summer as they were authorizing stunningly a fourth FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page for talking with Russians, the CIA asked him to talk to Russians.
About, you know, spy stuff, so they could go get the Russians. CIA followed up again and said, yes, this guy was providing us information. So this guy, Stephen Soma. Who was involved with the preparation? A lot of these warrants. How much did him in Kleinsmith, the FBI lawyer who doctored the communication from the CIA to say that Carter Page was not a source kind of means something different than Carter Page was the source, right?
Was the source. Let me throw not in their little weird, right. FBI lawyer wants to make it seem Carter Page is dealing with Russians because he's because he's this nefarious collusion actor, so the CIA says, wait, wait, he's dealing with Russians because we asked them to. And then the FBI guy changes the email and says, no, no, he wasn't a source for us. Kind of weird, right? Really bad. I'll cover Samantha McCarthy stuff next week on this, which is great.
But this guy Somma, who was involved with the preparation of a lot of these warrants and was Steven Stefan Halper, one of the other spy's handlers, his name stays out of, here's his first screenshot from the piece. How is this guy, Soma's name? Not in the news. So while Kleinsmith, the FBI lawyer, bears responsibility for altering the email concerning page, thereby clearing the way for the fourth FISA warrant. Someone or so many of them are responsible for failing to inform the individuals drafting or approving the initial FISA applications.
And first, two rules about the detail of the August 17, 20, 16 CIA memo. That fault lies with, quote, certain members of the CROSSFIRE hurricane team who receive the August 17, 2016 memo. Joe, I will translate for you. I know you're thinking, what does that mean? Yeah. So in August, on August 17th of twenty sixteen, when the CIA first sends a memo to the FBI saying, hey, you may not want to target this guy, Carter Page, for dealing with Russians because we're asking him to do it.
On behalf of the United States, other people in August of twenty sixteen other quote, members of the CROSSFIRE hurricane team. People investigating Page and the Trump campaign saw that memo. They did. And they continue to investigate Carter Page anyway, even though the CIA had kind of waved them off. Who are those other members of the CROSSFIRE hurricane team? Did Jim Comey see that memo or owe it to the director of the FTC, a memo in August of 2016 saying, hey guys, your FBI investigation into pages because he's talking about Russians because we asked them to, did Comey see that?
I don't know. I'm just asking. What about Somma? Soma, who was involved in preparing these warrants, let's go to screenshot number two, because this is really fascinating. But it was not merely that no one shared that information, the fact that pages were with the CIA, with the National Security Division, the inspector general report expressly stated that, quote, In late September 2016, an attorney with the Office of Intelligence, the FBI, who was assisting on the FBI's application.
This is Kleinsmith explicitly asked case agent one about pages prior relationship with this other agency. And that case, agent one, did not accurately describe the nature and extent of the information the FBI received from the other agency. Wow, who's that case, agent one there? Who was, you know, swearing out warrants and all and writing all that information in warrants? What was that? Was it this guy so much, did some what did Soma have to do with this warrant process, given that he's nailed the few times in the IG report, is the guy responsible for a lot of the misrepresentation?
Folks are going to be a lot more to come out of this case, a lot more. All right, thanks for joining us. A bit of a long show today we really appreciate. It's been a long night for us, but we're feeling good. It was a great night last night, as many of you can imagine. I really appreciate it. Please subscribe to our YouTube show, YouTube, Dotcom Bongino and our podcast on Apple podcast and elsewhere.
Hope you have a really great weekend. And I will see you all on Monday. Good day, sir.
You just heard Dan Bongino.
