MMA Fighter Takes Down Knife-Wielding Attacker
"The video is in the article. The footage went viral several days later leading to Baez making an appearance on TMZ and explaining what happened before, during and after his altercation. The man was identified by police as Omar Marrero and charged with two colonies, according to CBS news. What he likely did not know was that Baez held a 5 2 -1 record as a professional mixed martial artist most of his bouts with fight time promotions. Baez also told TMZ that he holds a black belt in jiu -jitsu, wrestled in college, practiced and has kickboxing for 15 years. So generally, he's a very bad person to pick a fight with, to the one holding a knife. And as they point out, this isn't the first time someone has had a fight. He's a very bad person to pick including an attempted car thief against Kevin Holland, a great fighter, an attempted mugging of strawweight Palina Viana, an attempted car theft against Jordan Williams, a home invasion of light heavyweight Anthony Smith, a drunken swing at Hall Hall of of Famer Matt Serra, a nighttime break -in at ex -light heavyweight champ John Jones' house. Can you imagine? Probably the greatest MMA fighter of all time, certainly one of them, an attempted stabbing of featherweight Maquon Americani's brother in an attempted mugging of legend Renzo Gracie. Renzo Gracie, the Gracie family. family. Unbelievable. There's a reason you see the word attempted a lot a in lot their attempted, because they all got their asses kicked. I'll be back.

It always applies to Mike, who scarcely does the same show in the same city on consecutive days. I know, I can always risk peeing in the closet in the middle of the night because you thought it's a hotel room. I don't know where I am, I'm walking around stumbling, and boy do I have a hotel story. Oh, well, hey, well, sit tight because there's another reason I'm doing this. Hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on. Because obviously you are back in the Florida compound, correct? I'm in, no, I'm in Orlando. Okay, well, see, my point is made, but the road trip I wanted to take, because for like three days I wanted to get to this, and doggone it, I'm doing it up front. Just take two minutes. You heard about the Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm's all -electric road trip? They were just trying to get from North Carolina to Tennessee, and they had NPR embedded because it's just going to be so great. Oh, look at this. It's the all -EV road trip, well, instantly, and Trump has the best line, Trump has the best line. When you get an electric car, the first 15 minutes are great, and the next five years are abject terror that you're going to run out of places to charge, and that's exactly what happened to them. So with the caravan coming, and the secretary, her own self, had not yet rolled up in her about -to -die EV, they blocked off a charging station with a gas -powered car. The one that was actually, and there was a family that was about dead on power, and it's 100 degrees, and they got a kid in the back, and they called the cops because Secretary Granholm's entourage was blocking the EV station. I'm not an anti -electric car, you've had a Tesla in your life, haven't you? I have, and listen, first of all, Tesla, you'll have more fun driving a Tesla than any car you've ever driven in your life. And the idea of plugging in and, hey, lessening our reliance on fossil fuels, but again, what happens is when we get down to mandates, and when you get down to saying, you're going to do this or else, I've got a friend who travels around the country in a Tesla. And so that whole story about what she went through, I knew firsthand from a very good friend of mine, because he goes from city to city to city, and he takes his Tesla. And he sometimes drives 6, 8, 10 hours on a stretch. And it ain't easy. I mean, now, he pulls it off. You know, Tesla's got a pretty fascinating technology. You look on your screen, they tell you exactly where the charging station is, they show you how many people are at the charging station, they tell you how many slots are available, if they're all used, you know right away in real time. They know how many people are at a charging station 40 miles away. They do. They know how many people are at the charging station all over the country right now. And you can look on your Tesla screen, and you say, you push Charger, and it'll show you where the next station is or the charging station on your route. Now, here's where it gets dicey. Tesla has now opened it up to Ford and all these other auto manufacturers. So now there's all kinds of competition. Yeah, but now, if you're a Tesla owner, you're going to battle all the Ford companies. Hey, can I tell you a little bit about a travel quick story, because I know I've got to pick your brain. And then we've got to talk Mitt Romney, because I want to talk to you from Mitt Romney. I've never seen a bigger disconnect within the Republican Party in my life, in my life. But first, before we do that, so here I am again in another hotel last night, and I always joke about peeing in the closet because I don't know where I am, and I'm walking around. I mean, honest to goodness, it is a very strange feeling to wake up and you don't know where you are. And it's been, I've had about nine or 10 days from New York to Philly to Orlando. I finally get home tomorrow just in time to have my wisdom tooth removed. It's travel stories and medical stories. Oh, yeah. And I predict there'll be medical complications. There always are. I predict, so I'm having major surgery, light a candle for me, pray I need some Gregorian chance. I know, because you know how I am. As Denise would say, I'm not exactly the world's best patient. So I'm not really good when things go like, and so I don't know. And I don't remember when I've got to stop eating. The surgery is tomorrow at like one o 'clock, the night before, right? Like midnight? Oh, well, that's 12, yeah, midnight before midnight. They told me, but I can't remember what they told me. And I'm afraid now I'm going to mess that up and then I'm going to Joan Rivers on the operating table. You'll have a burger in your system somewhere and you'll flatline. And then I'll flatline because I had a cheeseburger past the deadline. So anyway, so all this is going on in my life and I'm trying to keep my head above water. I check into the hotel last night and I'm tired and the flight was late. I'm blah, blah, blah, blah. I get to Orlando. First of all, here's a quick story about Orlando Airport. Now, have you and Lisa and the kids made the pilgrimage that every American family has made to Disney? And you go fly into Orlando and you get into that beautiful airport and you got to get on the train to get from the terminal to the main part of the airport. Do you know that experience I'm talking about? Yes, we have. It's been a long time, but yes, we have. So Phil Boyce, our big boss, my boss flew into Orlando last night at midnight. He claims, and I've got Derek Klingle, my producer, researching this. He claims that all throughout the Orlando Airport are homeless encampments. Homeless people are sleeping all throughout the Orlando Airport. And I said, Phil, are you sure those aren't like travelers? Yeah, I was going to say, I've seen some people who've been stuck, especially with the way today's Pete Buttigieg Airlines are going, flights are a dicey proposition. Maybe that's just a wayward, ill -dressed traveler. I'm going to find out because Phil insisted. He said, nope, these people had like little blankets and tents and supplies and provisions. He goes, I think they're opening up the airport at night because he goes in and, you know, Phil goes in and out of the airport all the time. Sure. He said, I've never seen this before. He said, I think these are homeless people in the airport. Now we've seen blue cities around the country that are opening up police stations. Yeah, blue cities. Notify DeSantis immediately. No kidding. I want to look into this big time. And so that's part one of the travel story of Orlando. Part two, I need to ask you if I'm being Karen or not. I want to know what your reaction would be if you check into a hotel, 10, 11 o 'clock at night, you're tired, you're grumpy, you get into the room, you pay extra because it's supposed to be like a club level room at a big major chain. Air conditioner doesn't work properly. I go over to sit down and watch forensic files to try to decompress the couch. I wouldn't touch that couch. It was so filthy dirty bio biohazard. I took pictures of the couch. I took pictures of it and then I get in the shower this morning and they don't have any bars of soap, which makes me crazy. It's all these tubes, you know, the containers of liquid. Well, dude, okay, the worm has turned on that one. We now want, we apparently want, and I've noticed the same thing. We have gel in tubes, you know, you spooge that out in your hand because that way no previous person is touching the soap. The bar of soap is so 1953 because who touched that before you? I don't mean another guest. No, but they're wrapped up. They're wrapped. The bars of soap are normally wrapped. But once it's open, let's see, you've got a family of three. Family four, family five, whatever. You leave the bar on the tray or whatever, then somebody else has to go touch the bar you touch. I don't think I would care, but other people do. So the soap in the tube is sort of where we are. I'm a family of one and all I got to do is open. I want a, I want a sealed bar of soap that I can put on anyway, but how about when the tube of the body wash is empty, so you're standing there, oh yeah, it was empty. So that's my hotel experience. Where are you, listen, good chains can have a bad day, but I'm guessing, I mean, not four seasons, but you know, kind of a month, 226 bucks for the night. That's not a cheap hotel room.
A highlight from Chairman Gallagher on What Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum Should Ask the GOP Candidates About Xi and CCP
"We're proud to announce our brand new ACLJ Life and Liberty Drive. Our legal teams will be focusing on the issues that you, our ACLJ members, have told us matter the most to you, life and religious liberty. Join the ACLJ in the fight to keep America free. Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College, all things Hillsdale, Hillsdale dot edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course, a listen to the Hillsdale dialogues, all of them at Q for Hillsdale dot com or just Google Apple, iTunes and Hillsdale. Morning Glory America Bonjour. Hi, Canada. I'm Hugh Hewitt. Tomorrow night, eight Republicans will meet on the stage in Milwaukee for a debate. I am certain that China will come up the Chinese Communist Party, but I'm not sure how. Brett Baer, of course, coming up later in the program. Martha McCollum, two superb professionals, the equal of anyone else in our business, will be asking the question. But I thought I would talk it through with the chairman of the House Select Committee on Engagement with the Chinese Communist Party. Mike Gallagher, congressman. Good morning. Great to have you. Thank you for joining me. It is great to be with you, Hugh. We're going to come back around to this kind of war, which I finished last night on the recommendation of you. It is a remarkable book. And I had no idea how awful the chai comms were to our American prisoners. I just I didn't know. Did you know that before? Did the Marines teach you that when you were in the Marines? No, there's there's two things that I think, well, a lot of actually our modern thinking about how to prepare people for when they get captured. Think survival of Asian resistance and escape school, which I attended when I was in the Marine Corps actually comes out of the experience of the Korean War, particularly some politically sensitive moments when a few American captives refused actually to go home. There was, of course, this controversy during that time period post Korean War in the 50s about this idea of brainwashing. This is prominently expressed in the fictional book The Manchurian Candidate, which became a major American movie. But a lot of our thinking about how to better prepare pilots in particular because they get shot down for resisting in captivity actually comes out of that period. Well, a couple of takeaways I'll never forget. There are no Turks died in the camps. The Turks are the toughest people in the world, and none of them died in the Chinese Communist Party camps. And the Americans didn't eat everything they could eat because they didn't like it and they died of starvation. But the fact that the Chinese communists treated our men that way is a tell because they've reverted to this mode. They were the hardcore Maoist, Leninist mode in 1950 through 1953, and they've reverted. And that's what I want to talk to you about. I want to ask you at length. We got a lot of time this morning and thank you for the time. If you were advising Brett and Martha based upon your six months, what would you tell them are the major takeaways that you've learned as the chairman of the Select Committee? And how would you suggest they be turned into a question? Take your time, because that's a big that's a big question. What have you learned thus far in six months? And how would you convert that into questions for our candidates? Well, I think the overall thing to realize for these candidates and this advice is worth what they're paying me for it is that there is, in my opinion, something called the commander in chief test. It's not you know, you're not graded A through F. I think it's a pass fail endeavor, but it is absolutely critical. Put differently, I'm not myopic enough to believe that foreign policy or a particular issue of foreign policy is going to win the candidate candidate the election, but it could very well lose them the election. The final thing to say about the assumptions going into this when it comes to foreign policy is that the conventional wisdom is that it doesn't really matter from a political electoral perspective. And there's a lot of social science to support that. I just would say it doesn't matter until it does. It doesn't matter until things go haywire on the world stage and suddenly voters are looking to a prospective commander in chief to communicate, if nothing else, a sense of safety that I have the temperament and the plan to keep America safe in a very dangerous world, which leads, I think, to the answer your question more than anything else. I think these candidates need to communicate that they have a clear understanding of the threat we face in the Chinese Communist Party, the scale and scope of this threat. Why this isn't just a matter of some obscure territorial disputes in the South China Sea. This is indeed a global competition. The CCP has global ambitions. What happens in Xinjiang, what happens in Beijing is not going to stay there. They are intent on exporting their model of total techno totalitarian control, which leads to the second point that you need to find a way to contrast that threat to enduring the and inherently superior American values. And I do believe that this is a contest between two fundamentally incompatible systems of government. And it's unlike anything we've seen since, of course, the old Cold War. So communicating the stakes, communicating who we're dealing with in the nature of a Marxist Leninist regime that will stop at nothing to ensure that they survive at the expense of their own people. And that is the enemy of freedom around the world is the most important thing. In fact, I would say even more important than any particular policy position is just communicating that understanding of the threat and the prioritization of the threat, a recognition that as president, the most important issue that you will be dealing with as commander in chief is how to deter a war with the CCP in the short term and win a new Cold War with the CCP over the long term. So let's put that in the form of a question for Brett and Martha, because I think you're right, I am looking at, of course, I've always looked at every one of these debates as an audition to be commander in chief. Eventually, there comes a choice with the Democrat. But right now, when I vote in the Virginia primary, I will vote based on who will be the best commander in chief. And because that's what matter. 9 -11 matters. What is the W do on 9 -11 that matters? What does W do? The Afghanistan and Iraq. What does anyone do on any moment of crisis? What do they do in the situation room? Figuring out how to elicit that about China is a difficult thing. So you've been doing nothing but this for six months. And by the way, recap for our audience and Pittsburgh Steeler fans what you have been doing for six months, because they may never have heard of the select committee. This might be the first day they're listening to the audience. No acronyms or five dollars in the tip jar for food for the poor. Well, the speaker of the House created the select committee on the CCP to do two things. One is to communicate why this matters, why anybody in northeast Wisconsin or Pittsburgh or Ohio should care about the threat posed by the CCP, to shine a light on all the things that they're doing, whether it's threatening to invade Taiwan, whether it's establishing illegal police stations on American soil, whether it's infiltrating American universities or attempting to build spy bases in our near abroad, to explain why it matters and why your average American should care about it. The second thing is to identify policies and pieces of legislation that can pass even in divided government. In the 118th Congress, what is the center of gravity in terms of steps that we can take in order to put ourselves on a better position to beat the CCP in this short and long term competition? So that's what we've been doing. We've broken it down, essentially, as though this isn't a perfect organization into three main lines of effort. And I do think this reflects our overall lines of effort, our grand strategy against China basically has three main components. One is military competition. What are the things we need to do to deter a war over Taiwan in the near term, as well as ensure that we maintain our dominant military position over the long term? The second is what I call economic statecraft. How do we selectively decouple from China so they don't have a coercive leverage over us so they can't threaten, for example, to cut off the export of advanced pharmaceutical ingredients in order to bring us to our knees? And then the third line of effort is what I call ideological warfare or ideological competition, which is not only how do we rediscover a language for talking about American values and incorporate values and human rights back into American grand strategy, but also how do we better defend our institutions from Chinese Communist Party subversion, from something called United Front Work, from traditional espionage, things like that. So we aren't corrupted and divided from within, which is what the Chinese Communist Party is trying to do. Wang Huning, who's Xi Jinping's top lieutenant in the 90s, wrote a book called America Against America, in which he talks about Americans as greedy, factional. And that that title, America against America, I think reflects their overall strategy, which is to divide Americans against Americans and thereby make it impossible for us to compete. So we've been developing policy recommendations along each of those lines. We've put out two reports, one on military competition, one related to human rights. And we're going to be putting out further reports. So, you know, I think those are useful starting points for for candidates who want to prepare for a debate in terms of where's Congress at on this issue? Where's the bipartisan center of gravity? Where can you potentially build on some of our work? But that's what we've been doing for six months. It's trying to understand and explain the threat and then identify policy solutions that help us to combat that threat. How would you put that in the form of a question by Brett or Martha? Well, there's the overall prioritization question, you know, what is the biggest threat to American national security, which is a bit boring, but no, it's not that's not boring. That that is that is the question, isn't it? Shouldn't that just be asked? What is the number one threat to American national security and why? Shouldn't that be it? Yeah, I think that that's table stakes, right? That's a good diagnostic question. And then it also allows the candidates, if they want to use their full time and I forget how much time they get to really articulate the key distinction between them and the Biden administration, because if you read the Biden administration's national security strategy that they talk about China as a pacing threat, although I'm hearing now that the Pentagon is saying don't say pacing threat, say pacing challenge or competitor, because we obviously don't want to provoke the CCP for whatever reason. I've described this as kind of like a Voldemort phenomenon. There's this belief that the more more we say things like New Cold War or say that the CCP is doing bad things, that it will somehow become more true, which I think is absurd. I'll be right back. Sherman Gallagher is going to stay with me through the break and then we're going to bring him back and then we're going to do that again. And we're going to talk to him for 15 minutes this morning about this. I can't believe I'm doing that. 15 minutes with Mike Gallagher coming right at you, America. Stay tuned. I'm back now with Chairman Mike Gallagher. This is the segment between the radio segments, so you don't get to hear this unless you're watching it on YouTube or on the on the television station. Chairman, in terms of what level should we expect of our candidates knowledge? I see your Green Bay Packers thing yet. Do you know the Browns cleared 38 million in cap yesterday by restructuring Joel Bentonio and Miles Garrett's contract? We have no we have the most cap space in the NFL. We are the team to beat. We will see you. I actually I don't think you're making it to the Super Bowl this year. We are going to be in the Super Bowl this year and you are not ready for this. I'm glad this isn't on the air because this is a serious conversation. But you had to do that little thing. And I'll I'll just go get my brown sweater and just put it on during this segment like that. I'm going to wear this all the time now on the air because we're going to the Super Bowl. Chairman, do you know that we cleared Miles Garrett contract yesterday? You know what we do? Do you follow sports at all or do you just do ChaiCom stuff? I don't follow Brown's contract minutia. I'll confess. I'll confess that, though. I was I was yesterday. Someone said that I had the potential to coach for the Browns after I helped them with a constituent case issue, to which I said I would never coach for the Browns on an Intel. All right. Let me get serious again. I'm going to try to go off the off the rail. We'll get back on the rails. How many times have you guys held public hearings? Oh, gosh, I think 10 at this point, approximately 10. You had at least one set of war games. You have more war games coming. We do. We have we have at least one more coming up that's going to be more focused on economic and supply chain issues. OK. Do you think the candidates know anything about that? I really do want to try and use today to focus their attention on China. Do you think they know anything about what the select committee has been doing? Have you been approached by any of them? I think some do. It's part of the reason I wrote an op ed on this that appeared today in The Wall Street Journal just came out was an effort, maybe shamelessly, to draw attention to some of the things we're doing, because I think it creates some unique opportunities. I mean, to me, you know, the most and this reflects my bias in thinking that hard power is the most important variable on the world stage. I think a candidate who can articulate what we need to do to rebuild the military in general, but really the Navy in particular, which is, as you know, Hugh is really struggling right now. It needs to be our priority force in our priority theater. It's not. We're going backwards. There's questions about focus, warfighting prowess. You know, I wrote a report with the help of Admiral Montgomery about the lack of warfighting focus in the surface Navy with Tom Cotton, Dan Crenshaw and others. I mean, I think that's a massive opportunity for a candidate really to take the ball on defense and go a few layers deep beyond just peace through strength, military good, China bad. You go a few layers deep on that and sort of communicate that you have a coherent plan. Doesn't need to be super detailed. Doesn't need to be a 50 page white paper about everything we need to do. But just as an overall strategy for fiction, I'm going to get your comms team in trouble again. I haven't seen this plan that you and Cotton worked on. How can I not have seen this plan? Well, this is a year ago. You got to blame Cotton's comms team for this because he was OK. And usually it's good to blame Tom Cotton. He's on next hour. I'll do that. Is that widely available? Yeah, it's Cotton did it with four of us in the house. It was over a year, a year and a half ago, kind of in response to all of these ship collisions. Some of the reports that we were getting from active duty sailors and just the changes over the years to training in the surface Navy. We did a deep dive drawing on the expertise of Admiral Montgomery and others. I will give him about that in the next hour and I'll get a link and I'll make sure it's posted out to the candidates. Don't go anywhere. I'm coming right back with Chairman Gallagher. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, Chairman Mike Gallagher of the House Select Committee on Engagement, the Chinese Communist Party returns. We talked during the break and we got off course because we did a little football trash talk. But now we're back on course. Chairman Gallagher, have you read this book? You had Kabul, the untold story of Biden's fiasco and the warriors who fought to the end. It it made me furious. It absolutely made me furious. Have you had a chance to read it yet? No, but my friend Commander Salamander, who's great in his podcast, Midrats, I highly recommend, just did a podcast with with the authors. So I listened to it. It's not the same, but I am now looking forward to reading the actual hard copy. Well, the end of the book, which I don't know of Commander Salamander got to because I didn't get to it and I talked to him for a long time. It's about how the chai comms came in as soon as we left. They have designs on Bagram. They know what the air raids mean. They know what the strategic minerals mean. It's just a great example of what happens when we retreat in the world. In fact, in the in the this kind of war book you had me read, I wrote down some notes. A retreat once started as the most difficult of all human actions to reverse. And they were talking about the retreat of the Norcs at that point. And then we would retreat later when they counterattack with the chai comms. But we retreated from Afghanistan and they have come in. Have you focused yet on what they're doing there? It hasn't been, admittedly, a subject of a hearing. You know, we have experts, you know, regional experts and Afghanistan experts. I think the key thing to bring it back to the the presidential debate, obviously the obvious thing to do is to connect the surrender to terrorists in Afghanistan, our abandonment of our position, our abandonment of billions of dollars worth of military equipment to then the collapse of deterrence in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, because I do believe that our feckless position in Afghanistan sent a clear signal of weakness to Vladimir Putin. And no wonder Vladimir Putin ignored all of our warnings leading up to the invasion on February 24th because we look so weak on the world stage and we allowed terrorists to completely take over the country. And I think also that has had a negative impact on our deterrent posture in in the Indo -Pacific, across the Taiwan Strait. You mentioned critical minerals. I also think this is a huge opportunity for presidential candidates to articulate a plausible path towards reducing our dependency on China for critical mineral processing. They control 90 percent of the processing. Right now, I think our attempts to wean ourselves off of our to to establish some form of semiconductor manufacturing independence are not going to be successful, in part because the Biden administration has placed so many onerous regulations on grants for chips, fabrication facilities. But if a Republican candidate, particularly one with a business background or with a gubernatorial background, came in and said, here's our strategy when it comes to advanced pharmaceutical ingredients, critical minerals and rare earth processing, tie that to a robust domestic economic agenda. That's a massive opportunity for someone trying to pass the commander in chief test, because the reality is we are going to have to reclaim our economic independence from China in key areas. The progressives are experimenting with one way to do it. We need to identify a way that is fundamentally free market, but not but nonetheless achieves the actual goal of reducing our dependency on China. Chairman Gallagher, there's only one veteran on the stage, Ron DeSantis. Mike Pence has got a son and a son in law on active duty. Of course, Nikki Haley's husband is deployed. Those three know about this in terms of of why is China a threat? Is it a fair question to ask? Why is China a threat? What is it that worries you about China? Is that a fair question? If so, how would you answer that or suggest they answer that if you are one of the people on the stage? Well, first of all, I do think DeSantis has been really good on China and probably the best in the field. I was watching the forum that they did in Iowa. I forget what it's called, the Iowa Faith and Family Forum. And he proactively brought up China as an issue and talked about what he's done in Florida to combat the threat, talked about the threat in global terms. And so the most of the discussion focused on Ukraine. And I understand that that's more of a politically divisive issue on the stage. And so there is a you know, I think the moderators will want to identify the differences between the candidate thus far. Governor DeSantis has been talking in clear and unapologetic language about why the CCP is a threat and what he would do to combat it, which is greatly appreciated. More to your point, as a Navy veteran, I think he has a huge opportunity to be the Navy guy, be the guy who's going to rebuild the Navy and put it in a position where it can it can deter Xi Jinping from attempting to achieve his lifelong ambition was to take Taiwan by force. So to answer your question, Vivek just told me last week, we'll give them Taiwan after we achieve semiconductor independence. In other words, Vivek understands Taiwan is important for its semiconductor. Your colleague on the committee, Ro Khanna, tweeted at me last night when I was already offline that that doesn't do the trick. That's not why we're worried about Taiwan going down. Who's right? Well, obviously, our interests in Taiwan extend far beyond semiconductors. Our interests predate Taiwan's emergence as a semiconductor powerhouse. And if the concern from Vivek and I think it is that our dependence on TSMC for semiconductor manufacturing needs to be eliminated, I just would say two things. It's highly unlikely that we're going to achieve semiconductor independence by 2028. TSMC is investing far more money than the CHIPS Act is investing right now. Even under a Republican president, we would struggle to wean ourself off our dependency. But if the CCP had control of Taiwan, they would still be able to hold the rest of the world economically hostage. And that is the issue. Semiconductors or other or some sort of domain of economic competition. If they had Taiwan, they would be able to completely dominate the region through which trillions of dollars of international trade go. The other thing I would say, it's I mean, we got to go to break. I'll come back to go to break. We'll be right back with Chairman Gallagher during the break and then one more segment beyond. Don't go anywhere. America, I'm Hugh Hewitt. Portions of The Hugh Hewitt Show are brought to you by Food for the Poor. So I'm back with Chairman Gallagher, Chairman Vivek's answer to that is I'm going to get India to cooperate. And if Taiwan closes the Taiwan Straits, we're going to close the Malacca Straits. Ro Khanna says that's that's crazy. That doesn't work. I don't know what the answer is, but I know what Vivek has told me. I don't think he agrees with you, but I'll let him speak for himself. I don't want to put words in his mouth that we have to worry that much about the Taiwan Strait. Well, he's obviously very smart. I would say this with Marxist Leninist regimes, their appetites grow with the eating. So I think it would be a mistake to think that if we just surrender Taiwan on a date certain that we wouldn't have to worry about the problem. If they're the dominant regional power, they're one step closer to becoming the dominant global power. And that, I think, is the answer to your earlier question. Why? Why is the CCP a threat? Because they're trying to destroy our geopolitical position. Primarily by convincing us to destroy ourselves, they believe, as we mince words about whether they're a competitor or an adversary, they certainly believe that they're in an existential war with the free world led by America and that China will win, rendering America and our constitutional system of self -government subordinate, humiliated and wholly irrelevant on the world stage. So you can sort of think of it as as an assisted suicide. You know, they're trying to expedite our collapse. They provide the chemicals, fentanyl, the collapse in prosperity. Covid, IP theft, economic warfare and the self -loathing and depression via political interference and information warfare. So I think the the the threat would not stop after Xi Jinping had taken Taiwan. I think it would only expedite and become greater. So if you could read Xi Jinping's mind, what is he thinking about us? What does he want to see happen to us? I think he wants us to look inward and to abandon our position on the world stage and to be consumed with internal political battles. I also think he likes seeing us embrace this almost the CCP's narrative that America is an evil country. America is a neo colonial racist hellscape. I mean, this is CCP propaganda that a lot of Americans have embraced. I think ultimately he wants us to lose faith in ourselves as a force for good in the world. And ultimately, over time, he thinks the rest of the world is going to Finland dies more in the CCP's direction as an alternative model of government and world leadership, in part because America has lost faith in itself. That's why I think primarily the hard power is the most important variable. This is an ideological competition overall. And ignoring the role ideology plays in the competition is a fatal flaw. And so we need to find a way to press the candidates on that as well. You know, the we got two minutes before we come back. The ideological competition is quite simply not discussed. And I don't think our media is familiar with it. They're not stupid. They're ignorant of the ideological. They don't even believe it exists anymore. Chairman, have you run into that? Do your Democratic colleagues believe that there are such things like Leninist and that that the 20th century ideological competition is back with a vengeance? Well, I think for two and a half decades, we tried to take the communist out of Chinese Communist Party, and this belief persists that, well, they're not really communist. They're not really Marxist. They've embraced forms of capitalism and they're they're rational actors. And I think this is a dangerous way of thinking to go down, particularly under Xi Jinping. The party has embraced its Marxist Leninist roots. Xi's spirit animal is, in fact, Stalin. He looks to Stalin for guidance on how to operate. And so a candidate who understands that and can articulate that, I think, has a massive opportunity to distinguish themselves. The Democrats sort of come at the ideological competition through human rights. And there are a lot who genuinely believe in the cause of human rights. And though there are times when we have to prioritize between security concerns and human rights, this is when dealing with China, that's not an issue at all. We're coming right back. Stand by, chairman.
A highlight from Ch Ahn (Encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas show. They say it's a thin line between love and hate. But we're working every day to thicken that line, or at least make it a double or triple line. But now here's your line jumping host, Eric Metaxas. I have a very special guest today. As you know, on Miracle Mondays, we try to have someone on who believes in miracles, who's maybe experienced some miracles, whose life itself is a miracle. Today, I am thrilled to have in the studio with me, all the way from Pasadena, California, Che Ahn. How do I describe Che Ahn? He's the founder and president of Harvest International Ministry, a worldwide apostolic network of churches in over 60 nations. My goodness, he's also the international chancellor of Wagner University. He's received his master's and doctorate in ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. He's written many books. He's been married for 40 years to his wife, Sue. They have four adult children, six grandchildren. I think that says it all. Che Ahn, welcome to the program. Well, thank you. What an honor to be on your show. Listen, it's my honor to have you. I've known you for many, many years. You haven't known of me, but I've known of your ministries. What was the one with fire in the title? I can't remember. It was Teen Mania, or what was it? It was something you did here in New York, like 12 or 13 years ago. Well, we did the Call New York. That's what it was. The Call New York. It was the Call New York. Yeah, 2001. That's, you know what? 2001? Yeah, after 9 -11. That is 18 years ago. Yeah, and it's interesting because initially when we came to mobilize the pastors, actually they were very, very rude. They said, we don't need the Call to come in. And then after 9 -11 hit, they said, we need to gather together and have a solemn assembly. We need to come together and repent of our sins. And before we knew it, over 100 ,000 people showed up in Flushing Meadow. The fact that that is 18 years ago completely blows my mind. Yeah, it's been a long time. Because I spoke briefly, I was on the stage, and I remember being amazed at the crowd. It was a huge crowd. Right. And I grew up in Flushing Meadow. I mean, I grew up a couple of miles from there, and we would, as a kid growing up in Queens, New York, I would hang out there. And so to see thousands and thousands of people, then that's when I met you. But for folks who know nothing about you, what is your story? How long have you been, by the way, in Pasadena? Well, I moved in 1984, but I grew up in Washington, D .C., in Montgomery County, Maryland. So this is out of D .C. My father was the first Korean Southern Baptist pastor in North America, so he immigrated in 1958. From Korea. From Korea, South Korea. There was no Korean Southern Baptist church in the United States. He was the first one, and so they wanted him at the nation's capital. There was a handful of Korean students who were studying at Georgetown, George Washington, Catholic University, to help rebuild Korea after the Korean War, which ended in 1953. Actually, it was a ceasefire that took place. And so they wanted the Korean government, wanted the top students to learn public policy, how to do government, and to rebuild Korea. And so there were around 200 students in Washington, D .C., but they wanted a Baptist pastor. There was a Presbyterian church, there was a Methodist, but not a Southern Baptist. And it was like my dad won the lotto. He applied and got the job because it was so hard to immigrate. I mean, it's hard now, but back in 1958 to immigrate to the United States, it was almost impossible because the U .S. government realized there was no Korean Southern Baptist church. So you were born here? No, here's the problem. We had a visa problem. So my sister, my mother, and I, we were separated from my dad for three years. And so finally, after three years, during my formative year or so, almost when I was five, then we got the visa to come to the United States. And so, to say the least, when I saw my dad, I couldn't recognize him because, you know, I was just two years old when he left. People have no idea what others go through. I mean, when you describe that and how many people want to come to America. But I mean, the idea that your father is a Southern Baptist preacher in America. Well, he passed away, but he was a pioneer. No, no, I mean, but in those days that he's from Korea. Right. And so you were raised in the faith, in the Christian faith. Well, I was, but I rejected Christianity very early on because of two things, you know. There was no kids in my Sunday school. It was just students, college students. And so there was no families. There was no other kids my age. And then I went to an elementary school, Forest Grove Elementary School. And my sister and I were the only two people of color in an all -white elementary school. And now, if you go to that school, it's very, very diverse. But back in those days, it wasn't until the fifth grade I remember someone of color coming in. And so there were no other Asians, no African -Americans, no Hispanic. And so we stood out. And so I got in fights all the time because people were calling me chink, even though I'm not Chinese. That's a drug term for Chinese and Jap, even though I wasn't Japanese. You know, by the way, I have a little joke. I say you could tell the difference between a Chinese, Japanese, and a Korean. If you see a rich -looking Asian, they're Chinese. A smart -looking Asian, they're Japanese. But if you see a handsome -looking Asian, he's Korean. Ha! Ha! Take that. Yeah, so anyway, but I got in fights all the time. And I wanted to be so accepted. Plus, my parents were working day and night just to survive in America. And so as a result of that, my craving for acceptance and to be popular led me into the whole hippie drug culture of the late 60s and early 70s. I joke I may have been the first Korean hippie in North America because I never met anyone. I stopped cutting my hair for three and a half years. And my dad is freaking out. He doesn't know what's going on. And by the time I'm 15, I'm doing everything under the sun. Heavy drug user, cocaine, heroin, LSD. And then by the time I'm 17, I'm pushing drugs to support my habit. And so I was totally out of control. But one thing my parents did was pray for me. And I really want to encourage people not to stop praying no matter how bad it looks. Because the Bible says in Acts 16 31, believe on the Lord Jesus and you and your family will be saved. And so my parents prayed me into the Kingdom. And so I'm here by the grace of God. I got radically saved at a Deep Purple concert. So that gives you a little clue where I was at. Wait a minute. You got saved at a Deep Purple concert? Yeah, in May 1973. They were just touring with Smoke on the Water, a new song that came out in 1972. And they were touring in 1973. And it was at the Baltimore Civic Center. I made a concert, 15 ,000 tickets sold out in two hours. They were the number one band in America at that time. And during the intermission I had an encounter with God where the Lord spoke to me for the first time. I'm not talking about audibly in the small still voice. Because I was having this for two weeks, this visitation from the Lord Jesus. Without anyone witnessing to me. That's why I'm saying the power of... Now when you say that because people are listening and I'm really one of them. Like you're thinking, what do you mean by that? I mean here you are, you know, you're a teenager, right? Right. You are big time into drugs and you're selling drugs. You go to a Deep Purple concert. Now you say that for two weeks up to that, God had been somehow communicating with you or visiting you. What do you mean specifically? Okay, so two weeks before I'm at my friend Sal's. We're at a party. Just guys bonging on marijuana and smoking and drinking beer. Nothing heavy. It wasn't like we were tripping on acid or anything. But I was just bored because I was just doing that every day. It was just so monotonous. You know, day in, day out, just getting high. So I went to another room and I was into Zen Buddhism at that time. Just experimenting with Eastern religion. So I went to the room just to go through my chant and after saying the stupid chant, I was saying it incessantly for almost a year. And finally I just said, you know what, this is the stupidest thing I've ever done. I said that to myself. I got nothing out of it, Eric. And you just said, duh. Yeah, right. No, but this is how he said that. So I said God, I said this audibly by the way, no one was in the room. I said, God, I don't even know if you exist, but if you do exist, if my parents, what they told me is true, that there's a heaven and a hell. Well, I don't want to go to hell if there is a hell, but I don't know. So reveal yourself to me. So I was expecting him to show me if he does exist in the days ahead. But as soon as I prayed that right there in the party, the presence of God came all over me and I started to weep because I felt so much love and peace about me. Alone in the room. Alone in my room. And I was sobbing and I knew, I knew it was Jesus. I just knew because I just prayed if what my parents told me as a Christian pastor, if Jesus is the way, if there is a heaven and a hell. And so I thought I was having some kind of emotional breakdown, but it lasted for three days. Every day that presence came on me and I would just start weeping. And I said, what is going on? No one witnessed to me. Are you kidding? Now hold on because we're going to go to a break. Jay on is my guest. It's Miracle Monday. I love these kind of stories. We'll be right back with the rest of the story. And there's plenty more. It's the air from Texas show.

"He received items of regalia, including an orb and a scepter with cross, just as his mother had received at her coronation in 1953. These days, the king no longer has executive or political power, and the services purely ceremonial, since Charles automatically became king upon the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II in September. Today's public is very different from the audience that saw Elizabeth crowned, almost 20% of the population now comes from ethnic minority groups compared with less than 1% in the 1950s, and less than half of the population describe themselves as Christian.

Congress to take over prayer breakfast from private religious group
"The long-standing national prayer breakfast event in Washington scheduled for Thursday. This year features a split from the private religious group that ran the gathering for decades. Some lawmakers say the national prayer breakfast had become too divisive, and there were ethics questions about who was invited and how money was being raised. So they decided to run it themselves. This year, Arkansas senator Mark Pryor, a Democrat, is organizing a smaller event, having some two to 300 House and Senate members, White House officials, and invited guests praying together for the government and for the world. Every president has addressed the breakfast since 1953 and President Biden is continuing the tradition. A larger event put on by a private religious group called the international foundation, will also be taking place.
If Billy Graham Can Talk About This, You Can Talk About This
"It was a great awakening that led to the American Revolution of people that were saying, I want liberty. I no longer want to live under king George. Now, that was the first moment in American history. The second, of course, was the church rose up in the 1820s when America was slipping a little bit. Moral decline, widespread alcoholism, questionable behavior. It was the church that aggressively inserted itself to make sure America did not fall. I want you to think of it almost as a trust fall, right? America goes into a trust fall. The only institution that is successfully ever caught America when it's falling is the church. The only institution. In the 1860s, when America was tearing itself apart, it was the church that was the administration of healing. And for abolishing slavery. How about in the 1950s? Someone that all of us will agree was probably one of the greatest communicators and pastors in American history. He himself said, quote, communism is the religion of Satan. How many of you would feel uncomfortable saying that today? Probably a lot. Billy Graham said that 500 times in 1953 and 1954 and 1955, he said, I will not allow as a Bible believing spirit filled Christian to allow my kids and grandkids to live in a secular communist society while the word of God is under assault in the spiritual domain. If Billy Graham can talk about this, you could talk about this.

"A new war movie to be premiered in South Korea. Soon enough, It's a war movie about the Korean War. It takes place in 1953. The title is 1953 the battle of Kim Song and Terror are very good evening to you. Thank you for introducing us to this movie. What is striking about it is that it has the blessing of The president of South Korea. President Moon What is the subject of the story? And what is unusual about the protagonist? Good evening to your terror. Good evening, John and Gordon. Yes, this movie is called the 1953, which is a year that the battle occurred and it's called the great Battle of kung song. And that is, uh, this occurred around the, uh, river areas of Mount Geumgang. Which is on the east coast of Korean Peninsula. Um and currently it's on both sides both on the north side at South side as well but the mountain but this is from the Chinese Communist Party's perspective. And there were numerous battles. Um, you know the Korean War began in 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea, with the blessing of Stalin and Mao and Chinese forces enter the war. Um, early on around a October November ish of 1950. So the army's talk occur for a really long time. But during that time, there were numerous battles. Very bloody battles. So this is one of them, And this is actually One of the last battles because this occurred in July. 1953 and the armistice was signed in July 1953. So this is one of the last battles before the armistice. And this battle it takes place while the armistice talks are going on at Pan Moon, John, is that correct? Yes, Yes, that is correct. This is a moment when the Korean War was in the balance that fighting was going on everywhere. There's an American movie that I saw many times as a child called pork Chop Hill with Gregory Pack. And the center for that movie is that the Chinese Communist Party, the army, the P L. A is off is launching wave attacks against an American outpost. And the reason for it is to see if the Americans are tough enough to withstand the to withstand the attacks. The Chinese blow their bugles and they come charging up the hill. It's a great slaughter fast, which is what the Korean warriors now that point of view is from the South Korean An American point of view. This point of view is that from Beijing's point of view, and and Pyongyang, this is they're the good guys. Yes, absolutely. That's how they're portrayed. Because this movie was it's essentially propaganda film that was made to mark the 70th anniversary of the ccps assistance or involvement in the Korean War, and they called us they call the Korean War. Anti US struggle assistance to North Korea. Um so oh, so even their name is different. And it is so it has very anti US competition. Anti Recover Korea, You know, anti rock connotation. And, uh, they, um, make their side of course heroes, and they vilify The U. S. U N and South Korean side, Gordon, help me understand why President Moon once this movie shown in South Korea does it? How does it help him? Well, Moon is very anti American. And you could even say that he hates America. Um, this is a I guess an example of him trying to undermine the US He likes the idea of North Korea and South Korea unifying, but it seems like he would really prefer to have the North Koreans dominate the confederation that would result And he certainly wants the US off the peninsula and in this regard, it means he's been very pro China. So there's the president of South Korea who abhors not only the Americans who are the only party defending South Korea, but he also abhors his own state. Because he feels it's an abomination. This is and it really an anomalous situation. You have a question for terror card. Torre. Oh, do you think that How are the conservatives? Um and and the normal South Koreans going to view the screening of anti Korean movie in Korea. Oh, they're up in arms. Of course, Um, For the most part, Um In fact, there's a Korean War Veterans Association. Um and, uh, leader of that organization he was actually shot at at this battle. And he still has the scars and actually out making some pieces of the bullets or something in him Still, so this is extremely people and shameful that the South African government has approved the showing of this, In fact, From the CCP side on the Baidu website. The Chinese website claims that they basically killed detective thousands killed or wounded 50,000 South Korean troops in this battle, so they're bragging about that. And they are saying that they silk the rivers of Mount with the, uh, the blood of the rock military division. That's how they're bragging about this movie. Terror. I want to make sure this is the Chinese army, charging down the Korean peninsula to overwhelm the American and South Korean forces in 1953. It ended with the armistice line. But from the point of view of China, the wars ongoing, isn't it Terror? This is this is not the last battle. This is the battle before the last battle. Well, you know, it appears so on the fact that they're doing this and they want the two is still this kind of image to South Koreans. It appears to me that there were looking at Korea is that they look at it as a province rather than a separate sovereign country. Um, and this is part of their cultural warfare. They do it with movies. They also try to claim that kimchi which is like The national identity. You know, that's a Korean national identity food, and they claim that the bad is Chinese. They're claiming a lot of those Korean culture as their own. So there's definitely something beyond, uh, you know, just entertainment or a movie beyond this, you know, instilled in this movie..

"York is in the hospital for fourteen days. A doctor and a colonel. Come in to talk to him. Nobody believes him about the monster. They think he's just suffering from mental shock at dramatic hallucinations. And they just tell him he's got to stay in bed. Which i think is the movies answer for everything movies. In general. Take a nap at the rest. Now okay. you're on bedrest. And the then we see the beast attack a boat and bite it and jump on nova scotia. Oh yeah then we go back. See tom and talk with the nurse about the newspaper. Only read the funny pages. Death in politics is in the papers. Only good stuff's on the comic page and tom turns the comic page. And for some reason. There's a story there about the ship getting wrecked by a monster. But can we just take a moment to acknowledge that in nineteen fifty three that someone said death in politics. That's the only thing in the comics are the only thing that ever makes sense. I'm like wow like. Does everybody just feel his way. It's like every generation feels like the same. Because it's like you know if you hear people today it's like oh the good old days but in nineteen fifty-three they're saying the same shit. Yep everybody thinks twenty years ago was the good old days because that's what they were a child the worry about the things that were going on. 'cause there's eight there's always things going on but when you were a kid you didn't know about it right and then you reach a point. You're like these kids today with their time and their bicycles and yoyos kid we had a hoop and a stick and we were happy. Yes that makes perfect sense. I was like what the hell. Why is this such a reoccurring thing like everyone feels this way. But you're totally right. You're totally right. So then Tom goes to see. Dr ellison who is a famous paleontologist who has apparently the dinosaur from bringing up baby in his office. That just a little wikipedia trivia for you okay. But it's so. Isn't it weird that. Tom's dislike he at first he was like. I'm not crazy. Let me out of here. And they're like no tom. You need to rest. And then he's like. I'm gonna go to this place and he gets up and gets dressed and leaves the hospital. Wait what in there for fourteen days. So i think he's just gold breaking at this point. He's milking his bedrest. Yeah i don't. I don't know how i guess i can just check himself out at this point. 'cause he seems perfectly fine. He's not he's perfectly fine and then like and then when he's in there in the has the conversation with the paleontologist like well. I guess i'll go back to the hospital.

That makes more sense. There's a little bit where they acknowledged that they're playing god and maybe shouldn't be richie is like you know. Every time one of these things goes off. I feel as helping to write the first chapter of a new genesis. Tom says let's hope we're not writing the last chapter of the old one by good anyway. Kirs mate. I did like this quote though that tom says he says the world's been here for millions of years man has been walking around a short time comparatively Mentally were still crawling. And i was like ooh true. I like that though. They go out to take some readings and there's a blizzard coming up and so they need to get back quickly. They might not realize there's a blizzard coming up the back of base. They know there's a blizzard coming. And then at only nine minutes and seventeen seconds in we get a glimpse of the beast new record so far when we get a really good look at it. Just a moment later. And george ritchie theses thing instead backwards and falls into a crevice and breaks his leg and shoots off his gun to get tom's attention not a good idea in a avalanche area but the dinosaur actually causes the avalanche causes the stock footage avalanche to go off and george doesn't make it.

Sometimes he had a really thick accent and sometimes he didn't and i did not know. Where's he from tom. Nesbitt is played by paul christian except that is not his real name. It is paul who schmid is swiss. Okay though i think he's just trying to suppress his accent yet. Because i know also at some point when we introduce the leading lady. She says something about when he came to this country. Sounds like okay or if we were if it was acting okay. So yeah they try. They must have just thrown a line in there to cover for his accent.

I I aspired to be an inter natural I think I've had my trolley bits on the Internet, but Umaga has shown that trolling is a art form. Okay, I'm Madeline Brad. The subversive stardom of Lomas X today at noon and seven on press play on KCRW. It's morning edition from PR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Sasha Pfeiffer, The writer of Francine Prose teaches literature at Bard College and one of her classes is about totalitarianism. In her latest novel, the Vixen, She explores the moral ambiguity of 19 fifties America the height of McCarthyism. Her book is loosely based on Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. The suspected spies for Russia who were executed in 1953. Turns out Francine Prose has a real life family connection to the Rosenbergs. My mother went to high school with Ethel Rosenberg Seward Park High School on the Lower East Side, and she and her friends all of whom lived to be quite old, remembered Ethel and knew her. And so even though my mother is politics were Quite different from Ethel's. Her execution was a tragedy in our family, so and I remember I was seven at the time, I think, but I remember I remember how powerful it was, and it always stayed with me and also I wanted to write about Public executions of people whose guilt had not been entirely Prove it. So that all came together writing about the Rosenbergs, and there do seem to be parallels to today in terms of how people can interpret or determine their own truth, that it's sometimes hard to agree on. What just happened. And do we agree that this person is guilty where they're intentional? Modern day parallels there. Well, yeah, I mean, they're terrifying, Modern day parallels. When I was writing about the Cold War era. It seemed to me so clear that so many of the things or the ways that people thought and behaved them had come back to haunt us. How much license do you think authors can take in fictionalizing history? Well, one of the things that haunted me and hearts. My narrator Simon all the way through the novel are the last words that Ethel Rosenberg sent to her lawyer. And he read them during the TV coverage of the execution, and Ethel said in her letter. You will see that our name will be kept bright and unsullied by lies. And it's such a beautiful line. It's such a beautiful line, and that was the line that that, as I said, haunts my character and haunted me that even though my character Simon is assigned to Edit this. Cheesy, lurid potboiler written for various reasons or based on the Rosenberg case, even though I was writing that I was trying to stay very clear about the truth and the ways in which the truth had been distorted for reasons that had nothing to do with the truth. Yeah, and you're the lead character. Simon feels this obligation not to be part of what he sees as desecrating the memory of this woman. Yeah, he's been raised in a certain way. He has ideals. He has a conscience. Although it's Little slippery and all those things, his conscience and his ideals are being constantly weighed against his ambition and his fear of getting fired. If he stands up to something he knows is wrong. So it's partly about coming of age and partly about being a whistleblower and the risks and dangers encouraged that that requires you mentioned coming of age and This is also a classic coming of age story and reflections on that process of change. You have a character who wants to shed where he came from Coney Island, and but then he's not sure how to fit into his new surroundings and He later worries he shed too much of where he came from, and then he longs to go back. Does that reflect your life in any way or what were you trying to convey their Well, a couple of things. I mean, that was it was much more of my parents' life than mind. But behind that one of the things that Simon's going through, I've always been interested in the question of how someone Develops a conscience. I think it's in so much literature that we care about how you decide what's the right thing to do or how to live in the world or how to be a human being. And I was interested in finding a kind of light, Not heavy but seriously political way of tracking that process in my character Was that fun for you to write the cheesy novel portions? The novel that everyone was making fun of. Did you have fun doing that? It was heaven, Sasha. I mean, it was heaven as I as I say. Writing badly on purpose is so much fun writing badly accidentally or because you can't do anything else because you're having a bad day or because that's what you think you do. No fun. But when you sit down to say, I'm going to write something really terrible today, it's just pure joy. There's a lot of funny but harsh commentary on the world of authors and writers and publishing. Even more interesting because it comes from you. Someone who's a prolific writer you get into the insecurities of writers, authors and their fragile egos. You know how embarrassingly vulnerable they are to flattery, even insincere flattery. How much does that reflect your own life in publishing? Well, a lot. Of course. I mean, especially the the vulnerability and the and the response to and sincere, flattering, But But beyond that, I I think I was writing about it partly vanished world Kind of old school publishing that I knew my first novel came out in 1973. So publishing was still in the fifties. In a certain way. I mean, it was still very Mad men. There is still three martini lunches there really work. So the scene in the novel in which Simon gets drunk and falls over at lunch with his uncle actually happened to me at my lunch with my first editor. Oh, really? You were the one who couldn't stand straight after multiple was understand straight that same wa? Yeah, saying Well, so, uh, and the ways in which Those guys felt free to make jokes about women's press..

But if you do, and I've been corrected, they're like, you know, you can't say Spanish trails and like, OK, Yes, I know. So a little bit of history. When the early pioneers settle in Las Vegas, their route became known a Spanish trail. And so hence that S so it's a guard gated golf course community. It's 27 holes Championship golf course.

Yeah, well, And then there were a lot of movies. There were concerts. She wouldn't remember. We interviewed her when boomerang came out The Eddie Murphy movie she was in that stole the show there. Um, you have to ask you a question. This is a personal Ernie question. There was an album that came out late eighties. I think it was Eartha Kitt live in London. It does not seem to exist anymore or anywhere. Do you know any reason why it's a wonderful snapshot of what your mother did, and a live concert venue? It's so energetic, it's all the hits. I'm just curious. Yeah, I'm I'm like you. I'm stumped. We've actually done some research to try to find it. I think that the unfortunately you know a lot of these. Smaller labels, you know folded and some of these recordings, you know, just got then I'm sure the recording to somewhere but they probably weren't digitized at the time. And you know our who knows where they are. But there are there are still some great recordings out there and Sony has their masters. You know, and we're re releasing a lot of different things every year, and it's pretty cool to see you know, to see her. Her legacy continue on and in many ways, as you mentioned earlier, be stronger and stronger than when you look at our Facebook page. Her Facebook page is the Earth, the kids Our largest demographic are women 18 to 35. I think that that says a lot about who she was a woman on But there's a clip that is often, um Sampled. Beyonce has sampled it. And Miley Cyrus even sampled it. I mean, is she talks about compromise on DCI talks about the fact that you have a man comes into my life? Why am I going to compromise myself for that for him? And I think that women women are really you know, want to know more about her because you know, she was one who did not, You know, she followed her heart and she did not compromise for anybody else. But whether that be right around whatever your painting is. I have my own opinions. Um, but, you know, but she really was a very strong female role model and certainly as a zit. The only daughter only child of this woman. She was a force to be reckoned with. On on every front. We're talking about the masters. For a second there. I had heard a rumor that a lot of her masters were lost in that 2008 Universal fire. Do you know if that's true or not? Well, the universal masters were that is correct, unfortunately, but luckily because the MG had most of her master's Sony, you know has possession of them, and so Well, you know, it's a good thing that they live they live on in perpetuity. Because of that. Yeah, I know my audience. We just did this at this past Christmas. We just did a new video on anime version of it, which could be found on YouTube of Santa Baby.

Routes that are already listed had a bunch of other stuff from the thirties. It was like a one of the things he had was a 1933 sport. King's card number six Jim Thorpe, It got graded a P ece three. I was looking up Jim Thorpe. I said, this guy I think was a really great athlete. Basically 100 years ago. He was like the world's greatest athlete. It 1912. He won gold medals in the pentathlon and decathlon. Was born in 18 87 died in in 1953. He, uh, played in Major league baseball from 1913, the 1919 and then in the NFL from 1920 to 26. And then plus a little bit in 28. He was a tailback and and full bath. Just figure out like how was in relation to everybody else at the time. And you and now, Okay, Here's Here's a quiz for a bonus.

If you thank you, thank you. Maybe you would get that was close some other things. I sent in that They just got the Huggins and Scott yesterday, one of our listeners had some really nice 1961 clear basketball cards. That some of them are going to get grated. Because now I don't know if you know about this, but P ece stop doing all their their lesser priced Grating fees, and the least expensive grating fee is $300 occurred. So you really need good stuff in order to get traded, but to show how nice this was there, I think there were Five cards that they were going to get graded by P. Ece and another four or five by sGC and then run. The rest is a lot. There was a Will Chamberlain rookie that was Really nice look, and it was in the holder. The centering added in the color were beautiful. I guess it had a crease in it. The couldn't really tell which hurts the value some, but I could see that doing Like for me. It's still worth getting graded that still worth getting old. Yeah, with the truth about that rookie card? Yes, With Bill. You saw that card, then you wouldn't have beautiful color and centering Nana. Oh, yeah. No, I mean that crease is just the same. I Without that, that card, the $10,000 card easily. I mean, I don't know what it's gonna sell for it Make greater Two or three with that creek or something like that, But it's gonna sell for four or five money. I can guarantee it just looks so nicely. It's gonna end that card all All rookies of howl of Famers air, really hot brand now with people that are are in thinking of it as they liked the collecting idea, But they're doing a lot of investing and stuff. I think there's a lot of those guys are really getting into the The big time name, rookie cards, and if it looks like to me, that would have been perfect. It's still too much for me to buy. If I was God, I don't bet on things that I send in any way. But If I was going to get a will rookie that I liked that maybe wasn't as high a grade as some of them. This would be the press The perfect Yes. Yes, yes. There's so many of the cards like he had to ask a Roberts and rookies to Elgin Baylor rookies, and so many of them are off center in that set just to find one that's centered right. There is a A big advantage to that card, so that would be interesting to see what grade they all end up getting. And then, of course, watching all those. Well, you've got some other biggies in that I didn't send him but from other people, Then you go see some guy that had a huge collection of great stuff. Several of me. Yeah, really busy.
