Those are your buzz cut items today and let me encourage you.
As part of this -- him.
Two I subscribe to Fox News first -- you can enjoy those buzz cut items and much many many hundreds of words more than that.
You see there the animation that -- you how you do it it's pretty simple.
And it's pretty fun so you should go do that and you should have fun.
Do you know Internet who was one of the very first people to do that.
One of the very first people to do that.
And it's a very flattering to me.
He's AB Stoddard she is yes columnist at the coaches and says.
I mean we can pump that up if you if you.
You can just go where you guys able to stick with columnist I have both titles -- you Hitachi today I had two days ahead.
After this after being a power play and but she is despite having as you just have cited have a summer well it was a -- and being tough yeah minutes after.
You're gonna tough it out okay Internet AB Stoddard is with you now I want to talk to you about this question as a -- -- Tokyo.
Because in addition to still giving the Internet and two in addition to giving the Internet this political motive in mourning the Fox News for them.
-- write columns because I love you people and I just want to tell you stuff.
Need this for -- that's right.
And I've heard about this.
Who knew that you would have to create buzz to sell free stuff like if you're giving away health insurance.
Why these depredations.
Why going through -- a viral video contest were giving money to the navigated with spinning people what it's like.
You don't picture Lyndon Johnson having to say hey -- wants free health insurance I think we're doing a viral eight -- Right well I think there's a lot of people who are skeptical that there are uninsured is skeptical that it is going to be -- At the subsidies.
They receiver -- and -- purchasing you know enough of that package that they.
Should also be you know manage out of there pocket and it and it it's just sent its sent.
Whatever sell job -- due to make this appealing has obviously not yet worked so.
I don't see a lot of people rushing.
Two government web sites and then the phone lines trying to find -- I think either -- I think largely if you look at the polls people are nervous.
Obviously the insurer -- terrorists and murderers and ensure that the uninsured.
Are not entirely sure they're going to be sensitize -- -- they look at what's going on the exchanges whether or not they've been set up whether or not they're gonna offer a variety of plans.
A lot of choice weather graphics and enough people participating in them.
They're wondering if the 95 dollar non -- C is a better choice then ability to run option for her arms about.
Right if you say here it is there.
I -- and I was when he.
First a little background perspective and you guys Christmas was like that's that -- not really.
I was born when I was forty and it's sort of Jonathan winners -- I don't want to get into at all.
The point of the -- is in order to provide insurance for people that insurance companies find undesirable.
Individuals with preexisting health care physicians that are guaranteed to -- huge costs that are guaranteed not to be profitable for the insurance company.
They are compelling -- is going to come but said it was going to compel.
People to buy health insurance they called it a mandate.
But it's only 95 bucks and for me when I was like -- I think I got no health insurance because.
That was the -- money like the idea that I was going to pay.
300 bucks a month for -- to have Elton John's like I'm healthy and -- bankrupt my parents if it doesn't work out if you would have said.
Who we want you to give us five grand this year already united -- dollar -- and it said.
Take the fight.
The other thing is that even if they say we're gonna give you speeches he -- city.
They can't prove the government yet has not been able to prove to residents in different states seeking your exchange -- your state is going to be able to give you.
This great affordable plan that are sub -- cover so until somebody sees that right that there are sure that whatever money they're given by the government is actually -- a foot the bill.
They -- gonna wait.
And they are potentially innovative and -- -- -- -- you and I don't know that if they don't enjoyed.
The exchanges the rates go up everybody -- exchanged everybody's rates go up because.
They're going to be covering the -- those -- are going to be expanded with sick people.
Because if you don't write if if it's.
It's objective is reasonable choice for this -- five girls make though.
Because certainly my -- -- you never want to by the first model -- people yes we didn't see well where's all this guy and he's always.
Wait a -- all my friends -- -- -- -- Iraq and self paying some -- to tweet about it.
If you viral videos like hey kids I was really just enjoying my new -- this stuff.
It then all of a sudden your doctor beeper from caddie shack yeah nobody really feels that at the right.
Is is going to be it is going to be huge challenge of the 67 million dollars.
Spent on the navigation that navigators.
Just really gonna help but they are headed desperate race for time to sign this -- It's Ron Paul's birthday today as congressman Monfils perfect.
So I didn't hug hug at a gold bar -- And audit the Fed and all that stuff but he said something I think it was him that said yesterday which was basically -- fifty million people who are uninsured.
We're spending 67 million dollars to get them to sign up.
Maybe just objects maybe just maybe you just throw maybe throw some -- -- away and say go to the doctor.
And you just wonder -- in the first couple years before it all didn't the bulk of the program kicks and they couldn't have spent.
More time slowly he at a better cost trying to chip to promoted.
He has getting -- do you think it's possible that the reason this is such a come from a is that that's the technical.
Is that it is a Latin turn its Latin.
Do you think that it is because they really thought it was going to be struck down by the courts.
Is that pop that's the only thing I'm -- because otherwise -- at the department of health close and it's like oh my god did anybody tell you that Obama.
I do I bought my house from they -- that it was in such bad shape because they really couldn't put any money into fixing anything because -- thought it was going to be good down.
Yeah exactly they're like yeah.
I think this could affect and the best and that's that's that's you get into it -- -- And I hope you -- It is it is -- and thanks for infecting us here -- with -- not good news is it doesn't August 3 in artificially not a good -- -- with your wisdom yes I think this with you mr.
Did she was she was are you want to -- arguably first the headlines -- first thank -- failures in our hearts okay Internet.
You you need to stick around because when we come back we're gonna talk about.
Not who went not a on determining without determining and what it did there.
We have gotten ourselves into on Egypt nobody seems to be particularly happy about it.
Of course that is sort of the rule about the Middle East but we'll see about that when we come back -- And that is this scene in Cairo.
Is the military and police.
Try to -- regain order regain control on the streets there.
And this is power play and welcome back.
Now how do you get -- -- without a coup.
But right now as bloodshed and violence continues in Egypt in -- clash between the military and islamists.
The saudis are funneling money into the country to try to offset what may be.
It's very confusing with elder American aid.
To Egypt what about American influence in that country some ninety million strong.
Mostly poor -- very young.
And a potentially huge.
Point of trouble for -- already -- region.
-- that people who know how it's playing here.
Our ducks are now he is a former spokesman for the intricacies yes he and it's not -- -- and -- get it right.
He is available to help you do stuff at -- -- about stuff.
Yeah exactly stop.
Democrat kind of stuff -- -- broad stuff.
Flights now just democratic running you know -- read it and it's all this green as the greatest investor alert level we try to help get -- -- we try to help get your message out.
Jonathan clip -- will also help try to get your message out.
I think though there is perhaps.
Angle on some of your -- -- at -- -- touch.
Because he is the director of communications for American crossroads.
You remember them and he's former Press Secretary for the Republican -- To -- And -- Are we doing stupid and so I don't expect you know about the ins and outs of Egypt policy that I expect him.
Yeah your your cool that we don't we don't stipulate that I think the onion headline said it best.
Egypt descends into state of Middle East.
That's I mean we know it's not funny but it's it's it's it's frightening.
That it's that it's there but I want to talk.
There's a story the Daily Beast has the administration's not really knocking it down which is sort of the back into confirmation.
In which we've temporarily.
Quietly suspended aid to Egypt -- out publicly saying -- meantime in congress.
In this society and get -- and Paul and John McCain.
In sync on something in the administration -- managed to do this these guys on foreign policy disagree everything now everybody says.
It's time to -- to speak on Egypt's foreign -- is always a difficult question.
Are we approaching a point where there is a bipartisan.
Consensus about turning off.
I'm not sure for at that point yet I think he saw some disagreement on the Sunday shows.
What the -- you know look I think most people would agree that what you're hearing from the White House's.
A little bit unclear in terms of -- messaging yes but they are trying to maintain as much flexibility as it can you know they've got about 585.
Million dollars that's that they had.
Not allocated yet to Egypt that they're obligated to outlook two to allocate.
They've said based off the Daily Beast story that.
They are taking the safe legal approach by saying it wasn't true.
But not saying that saying publicly and I think that is to maintain some flexibility.
I think people need to remember though when Arab Spring happened when Mubarak was.
Was removed from office they had democratic elections -- he took over.
We knew at the time that this was going to be rough complicated stuff and it was gonna take a long time before the situation in Egypt and other parts of the Middle East would ever get to the point where.
You know it would be you could consider it a peaceful environment I think what we're seeing in -- of is this is you know not something that should be overly that we should be really surprised about.
But I do you think overall I think there is some mixed I don't think we're at a bipartisan point -- on on whether or not to cut off aid.
And down I'm not sure when we're gonna get there obviously I think legally if there's a public announcement that.
This what happened in -- was a true that they probably here legally obligated not to provide those funds.
So is that sort of the leading indicator Roger -- writing in the New York on Tuesday.
Paint off of the administer and I mean this is the real lesson in Egypt is of America's dwindling power under -- wavering president.
Who's hesitancy reflects that most Americans.
After a decade of intervention so he said.
We understand Mr.
President that you -- that you're tired of all of this but the world won't -- And you've got you've got to pick.
What -- I mean I think what's going on over there it's important and I don't know I'm sorry yeah it's cool.
See but the the desire for clarity of expression from this administration has -- Yeah and it also you remember that the expectations -- set.
When the president gave his Cairo speech two years ago so.
There and you there was there was the promise not only nine you know through the -- spring there was a democracy -- amount -- -- -- that.
But what would it feel like.
The the administration is focused a little bit less on -- and it's unfortunate is how to bring economic growth to these countries because -- a yeah hi yeah I know you talk it out of without it at congressional and industry is talking about I know that the but those are the types of things and you when you read my hearing -- -- when you read it breeds a car and you and you read.
What really is able to bring two to create stability in these countries it's I think it has less to do with the -- you know whether or not someone has a right to vote whether or not they actually can.
Go out and makes an -- -- a question no question but.
Right now basically that's coded message from the saudis to sequence in Cairo seems to be.
Kill as many of the radicals they can now there's very narrow interest right now if these Schroeder triggers cat.
A fact where it's like.
We're going to look we're gonna put the lid on this but we're gonna give you ten billion dollars we're gonna look away for a second and when we come back the Muslim Brotherhood and the and -- the hardline islamists the south list.
Are going to be disappear again.
And you don't -- -- are we released today -- complicit anyway to some degree and the president did.
To have -- idea about.
Moderate Democrats being a transitional phase leaving two of these things to have these guys I mean -- we complicit if we're not saying it's a -- it's now.
I and I'm not so steeped in foreign policy to answer but that's what I what I would say is that.
-- -- that what we can do now is recognize that.
The in the United States has a very limited him that they can play here because as you pointed out Saudi Arabia is gonna give.
You know will will make up for any sort of loss in foreign aid that the United States.
Decides not to provide 585 million dollars is a drop in the bucket for the saudis and for other countries -- are trying to play so right and so.
Overall I think -- it's going to be hard for us to make it to push them either way and I think you know look I think that's what's going on there is the civil war and.
Oh man you're you just ruined my day civil and -- this I was I don't know civil war.
Egypt sits on the Suez Canal and is a nation of ninety million people if this gets into an Islamist civil war.
We'll -- I think it's important if -- it's -- it's a little bit different than what happens here in some other places where you work before we get ourselves in trouble.
As a really confinement for policy we're significantly Greg has and we come -- -- what we know that we know we know about which is people who want to run for president.
So we'll do that when we come back -- And that is what a Canadian.
Looks like that is Canadian rocker and making -- books again Bryan Adams.
And this is power play.
And you know who else is Canadian.
Michael -- but that's not important right now what is important right now is at the Dallas morning news.
Says that Ted Cruz is a Canadian.
Hurling the epithet as if he had been responsible for power -- Why.
Why -- why does this all matter and why did -- crews respond in what is the significance of Ted Cruz birth certificate.
People who now and I know that they because.
Everybody's argument Washington today -- -- now -- if you gentlemen.
The Dallas morning there is engaged against them.
-- -- think that it happens some advocacy journalism.
I would say when they decided how Ted Cruz is Canadian but indeed it did -- M -- said.
You we will exposure Canadian -- and -- where is the birth certificate.
And there was part of this was liberals -- -- -- on the other foot about the whole trump birth there Kenya stuff.
But another part of it is that for cruise.
Who it is now very openly flirting with -- presidential.
And what we should point out that he is that the same point in his career development actually he has little bit of secularism and and in his career -- development as Barack Obama was at this point George W Bush's presidency.
Nam but the so crews produces the paper.
And says I'm there I am I was born in Canada here's -- -- but it was too at American mom.
So I'm gonna renounce and -- to preemptively renounce any Canadian citizenship significance gentleman -- I I think it's it's an example of not a lot going on in the news in the summertime I mean I think that maybe it.
Below the radar -- could cause some problems down the road when he if you if and when he decides to run for the presidency there is a big difference between what.
Between this and the phony controversy for -- against president.
There is -- is there's no disagreement that or controversy over the fact that Ted Cruz was born in Canada and was born to an American.
That's that's a fact that's has not been disputed I'm not sure why yet to present his birth certificate.
The president that's the president's controversy was basically -- they're saying he would slide.
And that he wasn't born in -- that he was and -- in Kenya which was never backed up like any bit of fact.
And so there's a little bit of the difference I think overall this is probably it -- -- you know unneeded distraction for cruise but.
At the end of the day I mean you know look he's a very much in line with where the right of the party is and I think that.
Once he gets past this'll probably be someone who could you could seem kind of tier two of the Republicans -- primary.
Who knew that Canadian would be an -- I mean other than community -- it's -- much in -- Justin Bieber right.
There it is I mean I don't I think he may have said some similar things about Bill Clinton I don't know.
But that but so -- Republicans.
Stirring -- about that -- is it possible that Ted Cruz is to Cruz's father takers -- fascinating by no option Delaware.
His dad is a key is it Cuban refugee.
Who was an oil old man that the G geologist basically.
And they moved around they moved around North America is dead going to -- Alberta has oil spills note that the keystone XL pipeline.
And they were living out there he -- there I think utilities for.
They moved -- Texas but it.
Does this is this actually consequential do people are are are there Republicans who -- gonna say.
I'm not comfortable with this guy because he was -- can't look.
I actually think he's -- pretty good recruits right ammunition everyone I don't know it shows that -- the people are taking it seriously that this.
President to run -- everybody's kind of floating out there on his behalf is being taken seriously.
Also you know how it works in presidential campaign everything in this guy's life is going to be taken apart.
Piece by piece if he decides to run for congress if he decides to run for president it taking care now make this story -- the past he's moved on -- we figured out he's American.
I don't I know I I think you get past this it raises -- president and people thinking about now as somebody's actually gonna run I -- I think it probably.
It raises his profile or whenever he decides to make -- run so that and the Dallas morning news -- -- where Wayne Slater used to work that's.
The there was.
Times new Roman font controversy of these features -- our records but I mean obviously.
For the left.
There is some enjoyment today about watching a conservative who attacks president and if you point -- it's different.
That it is different but watching eight.
Ted crews having to show his birth certificate and Jonathan -- apart at the Washington Post so.
Like a double -- bridge -- and and it was.
I have I think -- what he said is that.
He he kind of even after the -- there but he also said that for other reasons besides that controversy he should renounce his Canadian.
Citizenship because you want your president to be under -- American right I mean I I I I kind of get that.
We have both both of you to -- in this country.
FBI you don't have theater there political and -- sitting there and neither of them are born in America -- in New York that's totally yeah real America.
Pontiac Michigan right here real America I kid mostly.
Just let your silver down there wasn't so far two I -- you -- six.
And kind of let go Pontiac but you know -- You know still and so we'll see you guys we -- to -- policies I'm definitely not there for you here for you you'll see the Steelers.
