Rashida Tlaib Endorses Prison Abolition Bill to 'Empty Federal Jails'

"Will Rashida Tlaib? It was a very questionable individual. She believes we need to end federal prisons and open up all the jails and the criminals. This is now a stated policy position of the Democrat party. Now you might say, how could anyone possibly believe this? Will you see if you do not believe? That people are naturally inclined towards doing evil? Then you have to explain it away. And Rashida Tlaib believes that prisons are the reason why people do bad things. Again, you must go to college to believe such things as play cut 20. Yeah, again, I think that everyone's like, oh my God, we just release everybody. This one's. But did you see how many people are mentally ill that are in prison right now? No, I know, but the act that you don't actually release everyone, human traffic is. Oh, I know. Child sex that are mentally ill that have substance abuse problems. Why are you asking me about them? You're asking me about the traffickers trying to understand your proposal is sort of sweeping. It does release everyone. What? So sometimes I watch these clips beforehand. Sometimes I don't. Good for Jonathan Swan. I'm gonna text him after this. He's from axios. Tlaib, that's stupid? No, she's actually a I could see it immediately. I'm like, okay, now I know what I'm dealing with. And yeah, I'm just kind of a loss for words. What I was just watching there. She was admitting, like, of course, oh, I know. I'm gonna open up all the prisons, of course, obviously. The sex traffickers the murders, the arsonists, hey, you know what we need?

Dine-and-Dashers Abduct, Assault Waitress Who Tried to Stop Them, NJ Police Say

"I was just reading about something that happened in turnerville, New Jersey, Washington township. And this is going to get me in trouble for saying this. Because we need to have a serious conversation about race in America. When Joe Biden talks about the thugs at the at the capitol on January 6th, what about all the violence we're seeing in the streets of America today? Chicago. How about Saturday at the nifty 50s, in turnerville, New Jersey? Police are searching for the suspects caught on surveillance video who are believed to be involved in the attack. Now, there's no mention of the suspect's race. No mention of the waitress is race. Here's what happened. There was a table of 5 customers who were attempting to skip out on their $70 bill at this diner. And the waitress sees it. And she goes out into the parking lot to try to confront the 5 suspects. They abducted the 20 year old, they dragged her into the car and they beat her. Mercilessly. The vehicle headed north on route 42, made a U turn was headed north south toward Monroe township, and then they pushed her out of the vehicle. Somehow she was in killed. She was beaten badly. Because she's a hardworking young woman trying to make a living waiting tables. Now, I'm reading this article, and I'm wondering, why is there no descriptive descriptor of the suspects? Well, we know the answer to that. The media never identifies black suspects anymore as being black suspects. And yeah, these suspects are black. And she's white. Now, I don't know that bad people are bad people. Criminals are criminals. But we do see a dish proportionate percentage of crime being committed in the streets of America by black Americans.

What REALLY Happened In Waukesha, Wisconsin

"In the last 24 hours, there was a terrorist attack and walk Asha Wisconsin. You probably saw it dominated the news cycle Sunday evening? Where there was a Christmas parade and walk ashore Wisconsin, which is just west of Milwaukee, really good people out there right near where I grew up. There was a Christmas parade with local high schools, bands, color guard, everything seemed to be going as planned. And then, a man driving, a red Ford escape, blitz through the parade. Indiscriminately, running over women, children, where as of right now, there are 5 people that have been killed. That's right, 5 people killed by this terrorist attack. And over 20 hospitalized and injured. Now, it's one thing to kill somebody. It's another thing to drive through a Christmas parade, killing children and everything that comes across your way, I guess you could say. Now, of course, the media was on pins and needles trying to see if they could turn this into a race crime issue. The media is already trying to chatter online saying, oh, I wonder if this is another domestic violent extremist, a white supremacist. You know, CNN over the weekend said there's nothing more frightening in America today than an angry white man that's CNN. CNN is set by John Blake. There's nothing more frightening in America today than an angry white man. The brute, the buck, and of course the thug, CNN writes. These are just some of the names for racial stereotypes that haunted the collective imagination of white America since the nation's inception. The connect with the Kyle rittenhouse story, but of course, the media is going to now memory hole and suppress this entire walk of Shaw story because the terrorist who ran over children and killed at least 5 people and maybe even more, by the way, we're waiting to see how many people have died because of this man. Is a Black Lives Matter activist.

I think morally for anything else I think about right and wrong. I couldn't root for the Lakers with LeBron James on the team. I just couldn't. So I'd like to and I feel bad for Laker fans. Feel bad for any fans. I mean, how could you be a fan of a team that has BLM? On its uniforms. Members of the team that wouldn't stand for the American flag.

The Most Insane Leftist Responses to the Rittenhouse Verdict

"Excuse me, the daily wire. Collected, they listed. We're going to post this, Mike online dot com. The most insane leftist responses. To the rittenhouse verdict. President Biden, while the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge the jury has spoken. What do you mean you're angry and concert? What are you angry about? What you wanted this kid's head on a platter? Is that what it is? Self defense isn't supposed to be self defense? How about Gavin newsham? This nutcase, governor, America today, he said, you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military. Shoot and kill people and get away with it. That's the message. We've just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation. You see, newsham, these kooks never condemn the rioters or the looters. No, no, no, no. The guy that had a gun in defect was trying to protect a business and was defending himself. He's the bad guy. Not the pedophile trying to kill him. No, no. He's the good guy. How about governor J B pritzker, of Illinois? This classic. He heard about Newsom evidently instead hold my beer. Pritzker said, carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. How about the congressional black caucus? Here was their statement. It is unconscionable our justice system would allow an armed vigilante who traveled to Kenosha Wisconsin and killed Joseph rosenbaum Anthony huber and the wounded gauge grows gross Croix to go free. Colin Kaepernick. He said, well, but I can do you better. We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, ha, let the boy be black, he said, and it would have been life. Hell he would have had his life taken before this BS trial. Sad. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler. These are not insignificant people. This is a very prominent Democrat. He said, quote, this heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice.

This Is What Makes Charlie Hopeful for the Future

"You asked the question, are you hopeful? I am hopeful about a couple things. So let me tell you what I'm hopeful about. And it's less about politics and it's more just about attitude and it's also about durability. And so after Biden was implemented, not elected. He was an implemented president, by the way. After Biden was implemented, we very well could have engaged in self pity. And self pity as Dennis has taught so many people throughout the years is a really bad starting point for anything constructive. We could have we could have set up, they had $420 million from Zuckerberg. You know, they spent all this money, mail in ballots, the country's over. But instead, you know, the regime called all of us domestic terrorists. They still do. They thought they could pummel us in the submission. They thought in March of this last year, we'd say, okay enough. Let's make Liz Liz Cheney the head of the Republican Party. Or we'll bring mit Romney back. And the fact you're laughing, greens me great joy. It does because we know that's a ridiculous idea. What happened was the opposite. What happened was because of how parents were exposed to their kids education during the Fauci virus. Parents across the country, all of a sudden, in a way they never expected the other side never expected got intimately involved in education policy and the education fights. And through March and April and May, all of a sudden we saw the most robust authentic and quite honestly sometimes messy political movement that still has traction and growing today, as moms and dads showing up to school board meetings across the country. And so you ask, am I hopeful? Our homeschooling population has doubled in the last 18 months. That gives me hope, doubled. We have twice as many people in homeschool. We did our campus tour at turning point USA. We can't find rooms big enough to be able to fit all the students that want to hear us talk on campus. And so I'll be honest that I think that politicians are largely a waste of time. I do. I think that we need to give them very short, easy to understand to instructions that they have to follow. And if they don't, we have to replace them and mostly we have to keep the pressure on Republicans, but our energy everybody has to be less about voting and kind of the palace intrigue and this. Are you showing up to school board meetings? Are you showing up to city council meetings? Are you homeschooling your kids? Are you showing up locally? Because honestly, for the last 20 years or at least the last 5 years like Charlie, I bought the pillow, I watched Fox News. I did everything I was supposed to do. And it's like, that's not enough. You have to, you have to do more. So I'm hopeful 'cause the people are tougher, stronger and more committed than ever before and eventually the political leaders will

'Transhumanism' and the Coming Cyborg Reset With James Poulos

"I just want to make sure everyone understands what transhumanism is in the sense of how it applies to them. It's this movement where these people in Silicon Valley want to try and integrate computers or technology actually into humans. You could start to see this with Neuralink with Elon Musk and many other movements and that technology is only accelerating. You saw that with Facebook, which is no longer Facebook. It's now called meta. Now, let me just start with something that I think our audience would be able to understand because there's a lot of technology behind this. I don't think even I have a good grasp on. But is it conceivable that if we do nothing? In 20 years we will be mostly cyborgs or plugged into an alternative universe and not the real world. Talk about the implications of where this technological movement is heading, which is the destruction of the human species. Yeah, that's a trajectory. You can see it in the language, the rhetoric around the great reset. You can see it in the way that, you know, social credit system has already developed in the U.S.. You know, we already have the major corporations and the government, including the part of the government where citizens can not replace these individuals by voting on whether or not they should remain in office. A tremendous unity of the institutions under federal purview, creating a social system on the Internet wherein if you say the right things and do the right things, you know, you won't get a check from the government, but you will get social credit points, basically. And it's still informal, you know, there are these things don't have a name. You can't sort of flex on people by showing that you have a higher social credit score than them. But already, if you have kids and they're on TikTok or if you just really hungry for the memes, you can just go on there and see that, you know, the zoomers who understand what's going on are already making sort of meme videos mocking folks like John Cena for, you know, for saying that Taiwan is a part of China, making fun of him for having an infinite social credit score. They understand where things are going. They understand that, you know, colleges, education system, Hollywood, banking system, every component of these pillars of civil society are all sort of circling the wagons consolidating authority and try to usher people into what I'm calling a cyborg Vivarium. You know, sort of it's like a domed enclosure, really, where people who have merged with their technology are cultivated and reordered on digital

By the way, that kid get all that money? 'cause it was like 20 some $1 million. Is that kid walking around with like $27 million in his bank account? He filed defamation lawsuits as you'll recall against CNN, Washington Post NBC for out of context portrayals of the then 16 year old student, appearing to mock the Native American Nathan Phillips.

I think my voters in West Virginia, but I don't speak for the whole country. My brother is a lot differently, but they're very much concerned. Inflation has hit them extremely hard. I hear it when I go to the grocery store, or if I go to the gas station, they say or use Matt as I am, not as absolutely. Do you know that gas got up to $4 and I guess 35 cents a gallon in California, senator Blackburn? Oh, yes. Absolutely. I talked to people in California every day that have decided to vote with their feet and to leave that state. Because you've got gas that is through the roof out there, people are paying well over a dollar 50 more than they were paying in January for a gallon of gas. And in Tennessee, it's 1.23 a gallon more. So what you're seeing is this rise and rights for energy cost at the grocery store, you are seeing the cost of Thanksgiving dinner is going to cost you more transportation to get to Thanksgiving dinner is going to cost you more. And people are fully aware of what this administration is doing.

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason, it shouldn't be surprising that everybody's talking about inflation right now, and it shouldn't be surprising that it's happened because we knew when the pandemic hit and basically shut down America for about 6 9 months last year. We knew companies were going to struggle. And the one thing companies always do when they struggle will make sure somebody else pays for it, meaning the consumer. So naturally, price of goods went up because they have to make their profits back. And now we're having a problem filling jobs and keeping up with the demand. Prices go up again. One thing I've always noticed about gas, they can jump the price of gas 20 cents in one day, but it never comes down 20 cents in a day. It trickles down over the course of weeks, so to make back that 20 cent jump, it could take a month and it's going to take more, of course. This is a reality we need to expect and people say, once the pandemic is over, it should all get back to normal and inflation will stop. You and I both know better. Everybody can raise their prices if it's something that we need if it's something that we want to make sure, their shareholders are happy. But we can't do the same thing.

Now perhaps it's because they're all attached to convenience stores and they're open 24 hours a day so the lights are always on. But I also think it has to do with the fact you got the convenience store, which has got maybe one at max two or three people in the store, but outside, sometimes 15, 20 pumps, and there is no security. There's no safety. Just bright lights and easy targets. I know times have changed and the world has changed and it's going to continue to change as we change to electric vehicles, but it still got me worried.

Fox's Brian Kilmeade Discusses His New Book 'The President and the Freedom Fighter'

"I'm talking to Brian kill me, you may know him from fox and friends, but he's written a lot of books. This one is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. America soul could use a little saving right now. But we're not going to talk about that. What made you want to write a book combining these two figures? Well, I was looking for the last time I was here. You kind enough to interview me about Sam Houston, the Alamo Avengers. So I try to find an angle not plowed and the Alamo is, but San jacinto isn't 9 months later he ends up taking him out as San jacinto beating Santa Anna in 17 minutes because Texans know it, but the rest of the world. So I go, what's next? The Mexican war, I didn't think had enough. My opinion, I'm sure there's a lot there with Lee in the quartermaster grant and the fact that these generals fought on the same side and then years later, they'd be trying to kill each other and a lot of them successfully. I said, all right, the Civil War. What could I do that's not plowed ground from Ken burns a series to the remarkable book, David blight wrote about Frederick Douglas Scott? I think the book of the year, 5 years ago. And then what about Lincoln? I literally you and I gave the same situation. We get books about linking to our desks all the time, and they're all great. I'm waiting for nobody who's written been written about more. It's like maybe three people like who've written about Napoleon Jesus, Lincoln. I mean, I don't know how many books have been written about Lincoln. So yeah, what do you do for a fresh angle on the Civil War? So what I wanted to do is also I didn't mind tackling race, but I wanted to do it through quotes, not opinion. And racist never left the news, Black Lives Matter is raging at the time. And then you have you have a situation where as late as Condoleezza and rice Condoleezza Rice on the view, having to defend herself growing up in a Jim Crow south who knew all about racism, but grew up as his conservatives says, don't ever let it be an excuse. So I said, what have I talk about their parallel lives to the degree in which they read a lot of the same books? Did they overcame incredible obstacles? Nothing like Frederick Douglass. I get it. The guy was enslaved until he was in his 20 years old, two tries, got out in the second time within 7 years has a biography. It's a bestseller, and then starts a world tour and becomes famous in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and England. This guy was a slave ten years before, but decides to come back to America because his 4 million enslaved 350,000 slave owners and he sees potential in this guy Lincoln and the Republican Party that we're finally ready to do

"Church in washington illinois. While john get through sits in jail charged with two stanford murders. I learned that years before his arrest authorities had been alerted to his passed by a tip to the fbi. I'm calling to let you know about a man in california who has committed murder that you probably have no idea about and the reason i know about this man as he killed my sister in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. My sister margaret. As a young child brought a lot of joy to our family. she was A very caring kind of person and when my sister died. Some of the joy of the family was stolen. Margaret was fairly quiet. Both of us were. I think probably every child takes their childhood is a normal childhood. It's only as you get older that you notice. Maybe it wasn't my father and his father before him where ministers my father was an army chaplain. He was a pastor in the military serving about quotes. Knock at a military base there or the army. in europe. Germany was the frontier knock is a community in. Germany is not real large but an army base was established there. One many of those with families live in apartment buildings and totally american communities. The military community was about two thousand people so it was like a very small town. Everyone knew everybody. So i think that game feeling of set of safety and security. My sister was a freshmen. In highschool john gadgetry was a junior in high school. He was eighteen so he was older for junior. And my sister's been described to me by a couple of classmates as being one of the very innocent girls and so there was an activity at the a a the american youth activities building also just called the teen center and they'd get together and and play some records dance and so there was this after school gathering. My parents were expecting your home by eleven o'clock that knock-kneed activity ended at ten thirty. And something my father wrote. He was talking about how it started raining so he drove to the youth activities building and he found out she had left five minutes before he got. When she didn't arrive home he hoped that she had just stopped because of the rain and then would be coming along soon but then when she did not arrive by midnight they called authorities and said our daughter always shows up for curfew and she's not home. Her body was found. I think at one eleven. Am to your knowledge how. She was strangled and Yeah there were friends of hers that as they saw her. Step out of the buildings that you want to go with us. And i suspect that margaret in that matter of meeting curfew was just oriented on here. My parents expectations at time for me to go home and so she was seen with. John drew outside of that building by more than one person. She had evidently walked with him and her walk with him led to a baseball field. That was behind the activities building where he raped and murdered her. It was really rough. My mother never wanted to see my sister dead body at all. So we had a closed casket for a real long time after that. I still couldn't believe my sister was dead. I was looking for her everywhere. I went i expected to see her. Tonga was convicted in german courts as juvenile and nineteen sixty four. That meant that he would end up with a shorter sentence and he would also be in juvenile detention. The maximum sentence for juvenile at the time was ten years for homicide for some reason. Get your only served six years and we found this memo and it basically said you know john. Getcha will be released from germany march seventh nineteen sixty-nine and he must leave in twenty four hours. They released him on one day and he was on a plane the next day to the united states and it's kind of like germany going okay out of our hands in the last ten years or so it. Just start nagging at me. More and more the thought that he would commit more violent crimes and so i was able to look up his name. I knew his age. And i found that he was a resident in california. That got my attention and made me think he could potentially be the golden state killer. But i did not know that he'd committed any more violent crimes. But i thought that because because of the particulars of what had happened with my sister that he would commit more violent crimes. John was able to kill other women because he clothed himself in this image as a loving husband and father my god. He did it when he was married to me. My name is susan. I was married to john. Get through from nineteen seventy two one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. I moved to california with my daughter who was five at the time and i was a single parent at the time when i met him. I really felt like nobody really knew what john was lake. He just had this persona about him that everybody was like. Oh he's such a great guy. And i'm over here going. Oh my goodness if anyone could just really know what a real with the real guy was like. But i john get. Through in redwood city he was the cass tech in the orthopedic department. I were there as a receptionist when i first met. Him is a very nice very pleasant and everybody seemed to like kim. I don't know anybody who didn't like him He was very yeah. He was very likable. it didn't like him from the pretty much the minute i met him. He tried to be my dad like trying to take that role even before they were engaged. For instance there was a an alley behind our apartment building. That was really one of the only places to play otherwise were on frontage road of the freeway else so you know. There was the carport area and ali behind and when he came i was all of a sudden not allowed to play in the alley and he caught me playing in the alley one time and that his going to me with his dot. Those are like the first memories that i have of him trying to be my dad and me not really wanting that you know at that time. John was also babysitting my daughter when i would go and play go bowling. I bowled once a week. Yeah yeah he babysat me. I i don't know how often on. But i definitely remember him babysitting me. I remember him me off the frigging balcony by my feet. You know he's standing on the balcony. And i'm hanging over the railing looking down at the ground to stories down. I thought it was going to on my head and die and he thought he was laughing at it. And i'm freaking out scary very very scary to me. The biggest singer members when she told me they were gonna get married. And i was just like no. Don't do that. please don't do that. I pretty much begged her not to marry him. There was nothing about of my leg. That was very uncomfortable from the minute. I met him and i tried really hard to impress that on my mom but she just didn't see what i saw apparently because then she married him..

Stephen crawford had hundreds of thousands thousands and thousands of images and videos of chelpanov affi floppy disks after floppy disks floppy disk of images and videos depicting murder and torture of women teenagers and young children. Some of the videos. That i watched things being done are things that are going to help me the rest of my life crawford is the biggest cowered in the world. He's lived this life knowing that he murdered her. And i wanna make sure that we look at other cases that he could have been responsible for this type of murder in my experience. It's not just one person. So i hope that we continue to look at. What else did he do. Investigators wondered was stephen crawford also responsible for the other stanford murders that began in nineteen seventy three with the murder of twenty one year old. Leslie para lawf- leslie pearl off. Her body was discovered in the foothills behind the campus on stanford land. She parked her orrin chevy nova to the side of the road and then just walked off to take a picture. She wanted to commission an artist. She knew to paint a watercolour landscape. For my mother's birthday. Leslie was a stanford grad that was going to be going to law school. She'd gone up to the hills to take photographs. I believe and was strangled and murdered. Leslie and i looked a lot alike. I mean we looked like twins. Leslie was my mentor and my protector. And i always felt safe around leslie. My name is diane love. And i'm leslie prologues younger sister. We were separated by about fourteen months. Leslie was my best friend and she was a wonderful sister. Leslie was very bright and she was raised to not be ashamed of being smart as a young girl. Leslie was one of the brightest students in our class. She was going to go to the best universities. She wanted to be president of the united states. She went through high school in three years. She went through college in three years. Stanford was the college to go to. My uncle went to stanford and then my mom went to stanford and then leslie went to stanford she wanted to learn about the world. She wanted to find out what was out there and experience it and make it a better place. Leslie was always very interested in justice shoes interested in helping the underdog she was in love and she was hoping to be married and she was ready to make the difference that she could in the world. I just can't imagine for her her dear heart and her brilliant gentle self to have the horror of that experience. I still can't imagine.

It got to a point where we didn't know if we really wanted to know everything but it was in the paper every day. It was on the news every day due to the way that the actual murderer looked like a ritual type of murder so everybody was assuming that it was part of that that type of a cultish type of ritual one of the theories came from an author and his theory wise that earlier was hunted.

"I wait L. Izzy Brennan is on a pretty good winning streak at this point. Now, it turns out Michael Jones, no longer works for Senator plate, but Brennan is going to roll the dice. Once more one thing you have to do as an investigator is followed employment. And so now you have a suspect that works in food concessions. So the idea is well, let's see if we can find him as the likelihood is that even though he doesn't work for Senate plate anymore that he probably going to work for one of their competitors. Dona same line of a word. So I actually got from Senate plates. Listen, give me a list of you like and top competitors and his business. This guy is not giving up. He. Makes a master list of all the catering companies in the country and calls them one by one asking if they have a Michael Jones working for varying levels of cooperation from various companies the bottom of the list is a company called Ovation's. It's based in Tampa, I made an appointment to go see him in person. I talked to the CEO of the company, and I said, listen to you have a Michael Lee Jones working for you says, I'll listen he says, I can I can't help you with that. He says I can't give you any information about employee's. You've require require a subpoena to be able to release that they want us to peanut what does that tell you? So what tells me that the guy works debt out wiles expert subpoena you'd I talked to thirty five hundred companies nobody had objection to tell me that that no Michael Jones worked then Brennan's? Now gotta turn to detective Allan foot. He's the Miami Dade detective who originally handled the case and let Brennan run with him. How urgent was it for you to get that subpoena? I wanted to right away. I obtain a subpoena for like Lee Jones's records, and as soon as I received the information, I faxed the information to Ken, very important. And fortunately, he was able to obtain a spin for me, and and get a fax over to the company at avation 's to seal there while I'm still present Ovation's finally releases the information, and it's just as Brennan suspected he's working for them. And he's working now. Get a minor league. Baseball park in Frederick, Maryland. Take whatever clue. Yeah. Wherever you can go you just keep working at it.

These telling me, this is gonna be your guy, and I'm thinking that south theory. But I still have no indication that it's a black male. So you're not there yet. I'm not there yet. I'm not there. And I can understand this reluctance. However, I knew I had the guy I got to get his ass up that again. So would you tell detective foot what do you need next? So I said, listen, we gotta get some DNA from this guy. He the voluntarily without his knowledge. So he made arrangements with this department. The be able to fly up to the Frederick Maryland.

"That was intriguing that was the piece of the puzzle that he had to sell I kin Brennan is now fixated on this guy that he saw on the surveillance camera walking into the hotel. You. I see him at that elevator entering with INA at about three forty one AM. And then you see him leaving with a suitcase at five twenty eight. About an hour later. He comes back, and he reenters the hotel, but is not the suitcase with them does that register something right away in your mind. Susie comes back without the suitcase. Now, he becomes a person of interest to me, he was the only one that had the time any opportunity to commit the crime and come back to the many people would look at this video and just think okay, guys, wheeling a suitcase out of the elevator. Brennan, see something that nobody else would see can observe that. When this man pulled the suitcase out of the elevator. He had to give that little suitcase a tug to get it over the little lip between the elevator and the floor. The suspect has to reach back and grab the handles with both hands the pull that suitcase out of the crack, I do a lot of travel, and you do a lot of traveling. I'm sure you have a lot of your clothing items. In was so heavy you needed to pull out of the crack. Now, probably. Not as soon as you made the tugs those he talked with both hands like a light bulb went off my head. And I said she's in that suitcase. Ken Renan is convinced that this sipc ace may well have a body of it. And the problem is he's having trouble convincing the investigators in particular detective foot that this could be a plausible way that it was taken out of the hotel. Whereas this guy coming out of left field with this blackmail suspect. Alan foots reaction was that. This was not possible the suitcase with too small it was just an outlandish theory. But this is a small suitcase. What would lead you to even think of woman could fit into a small suitcase? Well, the reason why thought it will be able to fit in the suitcases because this is a lodge guy. So I'll frame of reference on how long does suitcases might be a little off. So I decided to use a measurement of the suitcase and relationship with markings on the elevator itself. But that reference point is pretty incredible Brennan's able to determine that the bag is actually twenty nine inches high. And if you examine this image where we see the suitcase against the floor runner. He concluded that the bag is nineteen inches wide. Just like this one that I knew exactly how why kids? And then you were able to really theorize if someone could fit in there. That's correct. But I did was had a one fellas that worked for me. I had a girlfriend was that size. So we got a hold of a suitcase that was the same dimensions. And see if you could fit in it. She did goes. Yeah. Ken. She fits fine. This theory seems so bizarre. I mean, a grown woman being stuffed into a suitcase. So we decided to conduct a little unscientific experiment. Just to see. We went to gymnastic school and found a couple of women who are about Tina size and ask if they would help us figure this out. Our volunteer is about five three ENA size and to our shock in amazement. She was actually able to fit inside the suitcase comfortably. We could zip it up and we'll her round. She was okay, but it proved Brennan's theory. So I knew that she would fit all I was doing is basically validate what my hunch was Renan's theory actually fits now the evidence and even the time line he's able to conclude that this guy was able to go into the hotel follow INA. We see him on the elevator..

Once a blazing star. Elizabeth homes has all but disappeared from the public. I I've never really expected to ever see her again in person. Michael Craig had only heard whispers about his former boss until one chance encounter at a bar at sausalito, a look over to my left and at a bar table, staring right? At me, I realized it was Elizabeth hometown. Then she got up and came over. But she wasn't the poised woman he wants revered show like our fraction about former south. She was all that Steve Jobs black. Very made up. She didn't have any makeup on. She was in a like a. A dark hoodie and jeans she entered ucsd her friend as her fiance. And I was like I wonder what story she has been telling him and herself, really? The Elizabeth home story has had an undeniable impact on those left in her wings lakes. Whistle blower Tyler Scholtz. He and his grandfather, George Shultz have since made amends, the former theranos board member told BBC news that is grandson did not shrink from what he saw his responsibility to the truth. Even what he felt personally threatened and believed that I had placed allegiance to the company over allegiance to higher values and our family as for Tyler's confidante, John Kerry rule, he wrote a bestselling book, bad blood. But what remains to be seen is whether the story of Elizabeth homes is one of misguided ambition or deliberate deceit. There is this argument that she's trying to change the world. And it's not easy to change the world. We all have a great idea. We're going to have a car that flies tomorrow. That's a great idea. The great ideas are diamond dozen, but it's how you implement that. Do you think it's humanly possible that Elizabeth homes wasn't aware of what was going on at her company? Nope. No. She knew what was going on so many people wind up in jail for such little things. This is not a little thing. Do everything you can to this day. Elizabeth homes denies any wrongdoing. Last night heard about Elizabeth homes is that she is currently in Silicon Valley trying to start a new company and seeking funding for it was Elizabeth a sociopath. I think history speaks for itself. As she wants to cleared at a Forbes conference. Elizabeth homes is not a woman will go down without a fight and knock down over and over and over and over again, and you win by getting backup would start this company over ten thousand times if I had to. Are you hiring with indeed you can post.

It was what because it's a mythic arenas act was fundamental attack on a man's manhood. It caught everyone's attention. First thing everyone wanted to know why what drove her to it. Describing what happened what people are two different things. Defense. Check him out with that he raped and abused her. Feel humiliated. More to have to. This. Seems to be the simplest of narratives. Because she cut overseas. It took on live Joan. Joan. Story that has fascinated and divided America. It all comes down to who you believe. Do you believe him or do you believe her just doesn't seem right? What she did about when he was beating her up and raping her no one cared. Do think that men and women see this very differently. Many would say it is a woman abused to such a degree that she struck out at the area that was doing her. The most harm the symbolic power of that act remains to this day.
