  2. You can tell this man does not have a leadership role…. After being in war… You desire to see righteousness righteousness and honor through the evil and shitty ass people. How many of you were in Iraq Afghanistan understand and they hurt the excuse of fog.. My advice is fight with honor.. If you dream of a better tomorrow a beautiful tomorrow.. What do you dream about becoming rich and powerful lonely and bitter… go come freemans mountain Climb the mountain become a 33.. 33 plus worldskirt become a broke back cowboy… Or dedicate your life to a happy family with a life with purpose…

  3. This guy believes in community when his kids are playing on damn tablet versus AI and other kids and cussing each other out with these words…. Learning perversion and you wouldn't believe what they would tell you. Some sexual access 5 years old.. But don't worry you've got the storytime from the drag queens approving of this

  4. Mr. Bustamante talks very highly about the people at the CIA, their intelligence and sacrifices, but to Donald Trump, they mattered not. I firmly believe Trump is a classic example of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

  5. Idk, but something about this guy just doesn't sit right with me. Not because of his opinion on mass surveillance. I am getting bullshit vibes of the highest order, like Eric Weinstein level.

  6. You can't compromise with somebody that is bitter anything anything times bitterness equals bitterness… In real life too negative don't you go Positive…. Be careful brothers don't become a fool thinking with the wrong head and end up with bitterness.

  7. I rather be broke divorce unhappy… Then rich and begging the secretary and full of bitterness… A lot of American Caucasian people they're so politically correct to their faces and then someone walks away and the whole group starts talking crap about that person. Latinos will make fun of people in front of their face in a good way.. Caucasian people talk crap behind your back.. Don't give me wrong there's some beautiful Caucasian women out there… But most of them end up being karen sss. You know what the brothers say dip in them but don't marry them

  8. So at the 1:07:54 you give thanks and appreciation to the CIA members who end up divorced, unhappy and unhealthy for protection America… But, what type of people do they become when all of that becomes their life, what keeps them honest, what keeps them human, what keeps them from turning DARK because they have no good in their life????

  9. Unfortunately its hard to trust anyone from an agency with such a dubious history as the CIA, I mean it's pretty much a known fact that they played a major role in the assassination of JFK and the subsequent cover up.

  10. This is one of the best interviews I’ve ever heard on any podcasts, and I listen to a lot of them. Incredible insight into a strange and secretive world. I was glued the entire time. We’ll done, Lex.

  11. Look at Zelenskiy with an eyes of me a Ukrainian citizen: everything, I mean everything Zelensky promissed before election: Nothing he delivered, NOTHING BUT APPOSITES. To me he is a demon from hell, a liar, thief and enemy of true Ukrainians.

  12. Lex is too emotionally invested in Ukraine given his background. This sullied the objectivity and value to the public debate that could have been so much richer and useful. He is blindsided about the Ukrainian peoples value in this war and the world.

  13. Зеленский патологический лжец. "Маленький человечик" как и Наполеон – Сам себе корону опускает на голову. Зеленский хуже Гитлера и Мусалини. Это просто ИДИОТ.

  14. This guy is surprisingly naïve considering what happened this past week. Rewatch it and see how wrong he is about a lot of things.
    Can’t speak bad about the president and get in trouble?! Dude, James OKeefe and his employees got fucking raided by the FBI for a diary his crackhead daughter left in a motel!
    Starting to think these kids wanted their dad to go down for shit they wrote or took videos of….. 😂
    This guys is very naive about how unfree this country will be in the next 10yrs
