"She's a big city Doctor Who thought she had her whole life mapped out. There's a fellowship in Boston. He said I'm sure. Do you think it's false? 2014. Crown media CEO Bill Abbott and executive vice president of programming Michelle vickery are watching a trailer for a Christmas movie set to debut in the upcoming season. It's one of 12 their premiering this countdown to Christmas. Members of the marketing team joined them. It's for a film called Christmas under wraps, which stars Candace Cameron beret who starred on the sitcom full House as a child. She plays an ambitious Doctor Who loses out on a prestigious fellowship, then takes a job in Garland, Alaska. At first, she skeptical of her new off the beaten path home, but by the end of the movie, she realizes the small town has everything she needs. It's the best Christmas I've ever had. Victory takes notes, but her mind is elsewhere. She's been distracted from the first second of the trailer when the production company's logo came up. Hallmark doesn't have its own in-house production team. They partner with several production companies to make their movies. But vickery wonders if they should be taking a cue from their own movie. Maybe it's time they look at where they are. The twist of the film is that Garland is home to Santa's workshop. And the man bures character falls in love with is Santa's son. Santa doesn't outsource his work. Maybe hallmark.

Beto O'Rourke Steps Into Texas Gubernatorial Race Against Abbott in 2022
"The Democrats have an agenda to try to turn Texas blue. They keep saying it's going to turn blue. Big news today, beto o'rourke, he's back. Running for governor challenging Greg Abbott, let me get the dean of Texas talk show hosts responds to that big breaking news. For those who don't remember 2018, beto o'rourke came out of virtually nowhere in El Paso member of Congress and managed to excite enough Democrats that he came to within two and a half percentage points of Ted Cruz, our biggest conservative rockstar. That was 2018. This is three years later. What's different now? Well, one thing he's running for governor and not for the Senate, the other thing is three years of time passing. The questions become, does he still have the same kind of moths to a flame drawing power for Democrats that he had three years ago? I think the short answer to that is yes. Democrats are naturally thrilled by the notion of having a rockstar like beto, run for governor. But you know what other kind of group beto energizes? Conservative voters. Who for three years have had a good solid memory of how crazy he is on the Second Amendment. In deeply wrong he is on boarders and the economy. He is saddled with the albatross of Joe Biden in this gubernatorial race. And so in taking calls on the fly about it, this very morning, I found two types of voters who were stoked that beto is running. Democrats ready to vote for him? Republicans ready to vote against him, so the key question is going to be which is the larger group. I think beto finishes closer to Greg Abbott, presuming he's the nominee. He does have competition. He finishes closer to Abbott than any other Democrat would have, but do I think beto is going to be the next governor of Texas? I decidedly do

Mainstream Media Ignores Massive Migrant Caravan Heading to US Border
"Right now there is a multi thousand person caravan heading straight for our country, right to the southern border. Between all the mainstream activist networks ABC, NBC CBS CNN MSNBC, zero, mentions on their morning show. This morning that there is a multi thousand person caravan heading for the southern border. Let's go to cut 40 build illusion reporting on how migrants are hiding in cars on trains on their way to San Antonio high cut 40. What you're looking at are Texas state troopers finding 19 illegal immigrants hiding inside of brand new cars that were inside of a train being shipped to the San Antonio area. You can see the troopers looking at those migrants panning up and down Texas DPS pulled 5 other single adult males off of this train arrested them as well. They are all going to jail as well. Again, they are not being handed over to border patrol. And now cut 25, Fox shows how many Texas has deployed the state National Guard as caravans gather in Mexico, heading for Texas, play cut 25. What you're looking at is the Texas National Guard deploying to the area in and around the Del Rio international bridge. Why are they doing this? Because they've seen that migrant caravan that's on the way to the United States as we speak. Texas governor Greg Abbott says he is not going to allow another Del Rio situation to happen like we saw with the Haitians last month. He is pre deploying resources out there as a Shoal force to say if the federal government isn't going to secure that area, the state of Texas will step up. We will fill that void, and they are sending a message to that caravan saying, you will not be allowed to enter Texas. Texas is learning from their lesson of the last lesson I should say are their mistake where they allowed Haitians just to walk right into the state of Texas with almost no one stopping

Gov. Abbott Vaccine Mandate Ban Under Fire
"I want to play for you a clip of Greg Abbott on Fox Sunday with Maria bartiromo yesterday and then get your reaction to it here is governor rabbit of Texas. Well, you make a good point about all the people resigning because that's one of the problems with regard to the supply chain because so many people who are being forced to get a vaccine do not want to do that and they hints they're leaving their jobs. However, to answer your question, clearly, what President Biden is doing is unconstitutional. There is zero authority in the constitution that gives the president or his administration, the authority to mandate anybody taking a vaccine. And that's why we feel very confident. So stop right there, John burch, I agree with this so far as it goes to people not employed by the federal government. Do you agree with this as alliance defending involved in any of the vaccination litigation? Absolutely, we're involved in litigation. And when this executive order comes out, we would very much like to file a couple of lawsuits to challenge it. The federal government is supposed to be one of limited powers. And the states and the local governments are where general police and health and safety regulations should be taking place. And we feel very confident about bringing those arguments to the federal court system.

Carlson asked that question last night and has apparently repeatedly invited governor abbott on his show. Evidently governor abbott has declined because tucker keeps asking the texas governor. Why are you not deploying the texas national guard. Why are you standing up to the incompetent. Inept utterly failed biden harris administration on this issue. Here's a. Tucker carlson said last night we opened the show with horrifying pictures. What's happened at our southern border. Which is completely open in. This country is being invaded. No that's not an overstatement more than a million people this year expected by the rest of the world. It's been going on for months. And we've asked texas governor greg abbott many times to come on this show to explain why he hasn't called the national guard to seal the texas border and protect the rest of us from this invasion. Greg abbott has refused to come on repeatedly so pretty soon possibly tomorrow we plan to invite his primary opponents on this show to describe what they would do if they ran texas. That might be an interesting conversation. Governor abbot one. More chance to come on sincerely. Please come on and tell us how you plan to save the rest of us. What is happening in your state. Isn't that a reasonable request. What is what is texas gonna do texas it roll over. I lived there. I love that state. I know the texas spirit. It's not acquiescence
Biden's Border Patrol Uses Whips, Cages on Haitians
"All right a thousand or over 10,000 mostly Haitian migrants sleeping under Texas bridge more are expected And people are angry and now we're investigating the border patrol agents who are on horseback who are trying to stop them from invading our country And of course the narratives are all good people None of them are bad guys I remember bad hombres They're all perfect In order to try to get a better life Of course totally completely separate Story right Hey some migrants overtake Attack assault border patrol agents and escape a border patrol transport bus in Texas These two stories are not nothing to do with one another When we get a call from an officer and agent being assaulted we sent everyone for multiple agencies That's what the sheriff said The sheriff said 24 the 29 migrants were Haitian That's not possible They're all good people They're just trying to get a better life We should never be mean to them And the Biden administration is now putting his Haitians in cages Sheriff said border patrol sent two buses of security cages to take over the transport of the migrants I can't believe that the Biden administration put adults in cages Where is AOC come cry Please there's a photo op waiting on you Cover Abbott responded So what they did in doing that is they committed a crime here at local officials to arrest and prosecute the migrants The border patrol union president told Abbott the Haitians are becoming restless and that tension is increasing after spending nearly a week in the encampment under the Del Rio international bridge He explained that the news the removal of Haitian migrants on title 42 fights to Haiti is adding to the already high level of agitation among the detained migrants

"abbott" Discussed on Texas Take
"Look to be honest. I think i'd be a disloyal jackass. If i didn't vote for it. Given two decades of are working side by side and so the political process can play out. But but i want you understand where. I'm coming from because i've got twenty years of history behind our french. You notice that. The endorsement of abbott by crews has more to do with their relationship in their friendship and earlier in his answer crews had said that he would not even be in the united states. Senate if not for the backing of greg abbott. It has more to do with abbott liking cruise than anything else More to do with that than shared values or having done good things for texas But to your point about this primary so you have those people who are not happy with abbott at an event like that and you might be quick to dismiss it and say you know what's gotten jeremy all are crazy. 'cause that's a small group and it's just you know some disaffected folks and who cares about that what we'll let me tell you why because that primary is probably not going to start in january. It's it's probably not going to be held in march. It's probably going to get delayed because of the redistricting process. They're about to go through. Austin which is going to end. This is the one person who's working on redistricting. Put it to me. They said any second that they don't get the maps done for every second they don't get it. Done is another second that they have to wait to do the election next year and there is a bill on the agenda for the special session that has to do with adjusting the dates for when the elections can be so they're expecting this and if you think back to how crews originally got into office and this is an interesting deal you can only be in office so long before you are the establishment when cruise was the upstart tea party guy in twenty twelve the situation. I just just what you just described is exactly how he got into office right in two thousand twelve. The election was delayed because redistricting delayed the election the primary and the runoff that he got into with a then sitting. Lieutenant governor somebody who had already won statewide david dewhurst lost to the guy. People never heard of before named ted cruz. So when people say oh well. There's no way greg. Abbott could lose to this. What's his name. Don huff under this. What's his name allen west or this other what's his name. Chad pray there. No they at that absolutely could happen. And that's why to your point. You see abbott. Making these moves. He's making now to try to basically make up with that base after he made them so angry before. Yeah exactly and what we know in politics. I six months is lifetime. Says i you know. I know people say oh abbots so far ahead in the polls right now etcetera etcetera. But look. we've seen this before you know like like you mentioned dewhurst is a great example. Do hers was supposed to be the leader of that you know primary and he didn't make it out. I can pointed rhonda scientists in florida as lake. Adam putnam. was you know in a similar situation as abbot..

"The whole line cd. We'll be rather shorter. Perhaps than that of a full-sized woman and will shade off more rapidly towards its extremities but the identity of the colors would give you an immediate impression of identity of class making you neglectful of other details bear in mind the decay of site recognition which threatens society at the time up the color revolt add to the certainty that women would speedily leaned to shade off their extremities so as to imitate the circles. It must then be surely obvious to you. My dear reader that the color bill placed us under a great danger of confounding a priest with the young woman how attractive this prospect must have been to. The frail sex may readily be imagined. They anticipated with delight the confusion that would ensue at home. They might hear political or ecclesiastical secrets intended not for them but for their husbands and brothers and might even issue commands in the name of a priestly circle out of doors. The striking combination of red and green without addition of any other cars would be sure to lead the common people into endless mistakes and the women would gain whatever the circles lost. In the difference of the passersby as for the scandal that would be followed the circular class if the frivolous and unseemly conduct of the women were imputed to them and asked the consequent subversion of the constitution. The male sex could not expected to give a thought to these considerations even in the households of the circles the women were all in favor of the universal color bell. The second object aimed at by the bill was the gradual demoralization up the circles themselves. In the general intellectual decay they still preserved their pristine clearness and strength of understanding from their earliest childhood familiarized in their circular household with the total absence of color the nobles alone preserved the sacred art of site recognition with all the advantages that result from that admirable training of the intellect hence up to the date of the introduction of the universal color bell. The circle said not only held their own but even increased their lead of the other classes by abstinence from the popular fashion. Now therefore the artful irregular whom i described above as the real author of this diabolical bill determined at one blow to lower the status of the hierarchy by forcing them to submit to the pollution of color and at the same time to destroy their domestic opportunities of training in the art of site recognition. So as to enfeeble their intellects by depriving them of their pure and colorless homes once subjected to.

He didn't read the tea leaves. Well if you will in regards to their response to corona or his response really to sense before corona there was really no way to test government officials on what they believed. Yeah they didn't sign this bill. Maybe they didn't you know. Put out that executive order here and there but most of us could chalk that up to politics right policy. That's just politics. Yeah austin's the swamp and yada yada yada but then because abbott thought it was politically expedient to follow whatever foudy fat. Hey the militias midget whatever fao she said. And whatever the popular opinion was he did the mask mandate he did the fifteen days to slow he bought into all of now every every one every senator day even the great ron disentis did but the saint as we all know turn heel and came back real quick not turnhill but turned around turned him and tried to get that taking care of Abbott didn't abbott holt held onto it.

"I hate those things. i it was an awesome issue very popular had been in the republican party platform for years and they had killed it killed it and killed it because the red light camera vendors are down there passing out money to all these politicians all the time. we get down there and greg. Abbott was finally like all right. Stick when we're we're going to let you have a bill on your own. But i'm gonna need you to like stop fighting on everything else. Just sit there quietly. We're going to give you this this parting favor. If it'll shut you up. And and i was like i kind of went along with it and they made a mistake and let me pass it too soon and immediately i went into just burned everything down again and they they got mad and we had scheduled a press conference with grassroots people unpaid volunteers who had been working on this issue for years in the legislature. Who were signed up to be there at the signing of the bill and they were going to get a pen and all this stuff. Because i was a bad boy on another issue that got canceled without telling me or any of these grassroots people and he and i find out that he goes on twitter and does a twitter live. I mean when. I tell you like this. Guy is petty transparency in texas. Right now it is. Everything is a game from. Who's allowed in the press conference to who's allowed to have a bill signing two whose name it's gonna be in it doesn't matter it's all a game and it's the greg abbott show and he's done it to the party. He's decimated the republican party. Structurally it used to be that the republican party a texas had money in the campaign account. They would hire campaign. operatives block walkers they would hold the data from different campaigns and republicans would work together. When greg abbott became governor because of the amount of money that he had he ended up taking ownership of everything all the money had to go through him. In fact the party even stop keeping a regular database like from a campaign perspective. If you were running something. You had to coordinate with greg abbott. Which means you had to be in good with greg abbott. Which means you had to do. What ever greg abbott said and as a result we now have a party where the infrastructure is gone. The blockers and the politico's aren't with the party anymore. They're in greg abbott team. Wow they hold hostage. People people think we're lying. We're not lying This is this is the real real t. Tonight you know. What i. I've always tried to spit it straight. But people at home need to know they liberty and the continuation of the free world as we know it depends on the folks at home. Yeah standing up and fighting for their rights and if they don't know who the bad guys are if they don't know the truth than those guys are gonna keep running the show. And i don't like we're texas is going now hang tight right there because we got more to get into people always want to know about. Are we ready for the next crisis to hit america. I'm ready a lot of people aren't prepared. And they're going to suffer when they see things like hyper inflation or stock market crash or shortages or civil unrest..

Yeah why why. Why are there states. That are ahead of us on abortion you know. And why do we still have state dollars that are going to planned. Parenthood through medicaid. Why why did bernie sanders and vermont have constitutional carry before we did here in texas. I mean and when people start to actually get past the facade and the campaign side of the rhetoric and they look at the facts. It's very simple greg. Abbott is not what he said he says he is. He has not delivered what he has campaigned on. And then we can start having a discussion on. Who's the best person for right. And so you know for me at least in this first round. It's you're either on team abbott. Or you're on team get abbott out. And then we'll probably likely have a discussion over. Who's about you know like i. I'm not.

Abbot says basically thing differences. He doesn't say he doesn't take it as far as ron does. It's always what never does it. And this is where like the lame stream left wing. Media especially in the national level is so horrible for constitutional republic. Because they don't ask those questions. They have been so lazy about reporting on greg abbott. I've never even seen him do a press conference where he's taking happy the questions rhonda's rhonda santa's jangling with everybody at these practices and answering all the questions you can tell it's worse than that because if you've ever been abbot press conference which i have every detail micromanaged performance. There's not a reporter in there. He's allowed to ask what question they want. Reporters in there like they use that as a tool against the media because they're like and that's why he ended up getting lame reporting by traditional media sources because they're like well if i don't play with their rules that i'm gonna get kicked out of the room and i need access i mean they dangle that in front of them and they have a list of who is allowed in the room. They have list of legislators that are allowed in the room. When when i filed the bill and we we finally got through to ban red light cameras in texas which you know..

But what i get a lot of. Is people saying well chat. Why are you doing this. We've got a republican governor in the state of texas. Why are you guys getting involved. You're just gonna steal votes and give this to a democrat and it's like i want to encourage you. Comeback read six for dummies. It's not how the primary process folks.

It's it's it's super important and you know in a in a solid red state which is texas east to be till we got a bunch of rhinos in there But in a republican state. The election is in the republican primary okay. There's no reason for us to believe that. A republican aren't going to take the entire slate all the way down so who is on. That slate is is the argument in the primary. This is where conservatives get a chance to onto honestly have their vote matter more because there's less people who are going to be involved it takes less people to get your guy on there and i will just tell you from my experience down there. I was stabbed in the back. More by fake republicans more than the democrats because at least they square up.

That's tonight eight eastern on ESPN for all the latest headlines and information tune the sportscenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day, so our old friend Henry Avid from true hope. It's been a long time since we talked to him, he he had a story that was enlightening. I was not familiar with the details in his story Henry. Thank you. It's good talking to you. Thank you for returning to the show here. You want to tell the people basically the why of. Why you wrote this story and how you found out about this story and what went into this story? Yeah then it's going to be A Guy I. Thought. It was weird that the NBA approved a owner from fourth generation mob family, and he was referring to the rockets owner Tillman thiede and it seemed like this kind of breathless secret that you'd never get reported, or you have to go talk to FBI agents of this kind of stuff, but instead I I mean I'm slightly simplifying the process of all the laws newspaper in dot, com and basically Google, and it's people from Houston or Galveston where they'll families really from are not surprised at all. It's it's a totally open secret that the for family goes way back in the GALVESTON mob. It's I'm not saying that such minutes not commit southwest by indictments and. Even like spreads into the movie casino, that's sort of the story of. One member of this family and we have somehow in sports were ignorant to the whole thing. What do you mean the movie casino? so you remember the movie casino yes. It's great. About the skin right these that. The, mob the Kansas City mob in Chicago, Ma they like get a guy on the inside and the casino visit before the money's countered. money's skimmed off and it goes to. Someone has to drive it to the rest of the Kansas City. Just hand the money to the modern fixing lines. It's really based on the true. Story the corporation employed various characters who have been you know somewhat fictionalized in the movie, but one of the key figures had Carl Thomas? Who has heard on wiretaps like teaching the mob how to Skim Money? There are a lot of other characters in the story but his partner owning a different casino on in Vegas was let's Frankfurt. Junior and a relative of Tillman, but and and frank thirteen never did actually like everybody got in trouble that one that guy call on everybody, except Frank which was kind of amazing and frank was not the only person involved wasn't like permanently banned from from Vegas, but one of the people to her. The wiretap said like. Like look I know what this guy did. Here's a quote from the guy. the outlier. Vote the tire deputy police. You've Jerry, Cunningham he told the one registered ninety, two I listened to the recordings and rugged transmits of the trial. I knew who and what Carl Thomas was Carl. taunts admits he stole money for the mob, and gave it disagrees Frank Partido junior was a member of the Carl Thomas Crew. So, how strong are the ties? Like? How how many ways can you tie the roots of this to present ownership? I mean nobody said that someone take an active member of the mall with weird to me, is that? How will we ever know where the money comes from right? And he is by some measures. The most successful restaurants are in the world fee I mean. Does this sound normal to you that you would own a bunch of steakhouses and then purchase the Houston Rockets for two point two billion dollars, so you. You're hungry for someone to repudiate the family history which you know, which you just don't see I. It's a it's just a it's. It's not. Out of the question that someone who's. Overtly a very successful businessman. Just earn this money and I'm not suggesting you didn't. I'm saying that it is weird that he became an MBA owner Li like won. The lottery gets vying them be a team in a very competitive time one of the reports that he didn't even have the highest bid. That's a little strange. It's even stranger that nobody said anything that we're that. We on newspapers communist how we in sports media learn about this, and it seems you know potentially relevant. Some of the people whose background XMATCH! Basically this is the time that NBA's getting into legalized gambling and stuff. It just seems like. Why are we here? Everybody? Did we take about this one? Henry. So how and why did the NBA allow him to become an MBA owner? I, don't know that the black buck. That's another problem right like we should know more about problems, right? I always think about on on Kashogi was like the world's most famous arms dealer. He talked about the Utah Jazz. The almost made it. You'd almost approved. The finance committee set him down like why would show. You want the Utah Jazz. And, my guess is that if you own the Utah, jazz the media stops referring to you. The arms trader among. UTAH. Did. Did for differ Tina. Did you reach out to for TITA HIMSELF? What has he said about this Has he been questioned about publicly very much? Yeah so I mean. We're so behind Texas. Monthly magazine has written. You know six seven eight big features about all of this, so it comes. They just do it every decadent again and It's rich every time and they get access to them every time and and basically. you know well. They're actually the best quotes from his dad was like look. Like to have control of everything this drives him nuts because it's the one thing that can't control is the family history like it just drives him. Nuts. That is reputation is smeared by this. And you know the implication, is that do with it, but I couldn't find the covert. He's like, oh. That was terrible that they were involved in prostitution and murder and. You know Blah Blah Blah paying off authorities, but you can't. I, see that quote. He's set a timeframe and the TV show probably know he said it, but like I couldn't find it. So what is the closest for the name mafioso that we have to the owner of the rockets? Like where what's the closest? You could bring this to his doorstep. Oh, that the question that the move designed to get sued. But. You wrote a story that. You a story that had all sorts of interesting facts in it was very thorough in terms of things that have been reported long before you arrived at this doorstep, I'd be happy. Just getting sued Henry. Be careful. Yeah, if it were just. Absolutely. Put It on the poll. Guillermo is Henry Abbott getting off light if he merely gets sued. The NBA with. Magazine Lord I did. Yeah no, honestly I. I. It's kind of a data dump of like all of this past ray departments incontrovertibly can't argue happen. You know in the first half of last century.

"So over the last few months of Yam ring on this radio program Stu gods his pinball all over the place. Sometimes he hates everybody involved with sports. It's always enough zip it. It up, get back and give me games and give me action and at various times. This must have been six weeks ago. He simply threw up his hands and said I. don't care who the NBA champion is anymore. That might have been two months ago and knows and so now it's all trying to come back and it's really hard to come back. Everybody's Catherine Zeta. Jones and entrapment trying to do a laser show of gymnastics trying to get. Back to the money and what I wanted to ask you as you get all these mutated distorted money grabs. How are we gonNA remember these championships like I. Remember that Tony Gwynn was denied something when there was a work stoppage I remember that those Montreal Expos. They had the best team in the sport. They were denied something when there was a work stoppage. I think while we've spent a lot of time talking about Lebron the window closing. There is the real possibility that Milwaukee will lose Jaanus as a free agent if they don't win the championship and I. Don't know if I'm going to remember what could have been. Because of circumstances, the way that I think of the James Harden Russell Westbrook Kevin Durant team that could have been something Serge Ibaka could have been something for ten years, but wasn't for a variety of different reasons. Milwaukee is in a perilous place here. I only think they lose. Jaanus if they don't win. The title and I think they were really in prime position to. To win the title, but these factors make it so that we might get this mutated thing that knocks out a whole bunch of players after the end of which we're going to be like well. None of that was fair. That doesn't seem at least we have the illusion. Basketball does a better job of measuring. Who was the best team than all the other sports? We have the illusion that the best team wins in the other sports as well football baseball, even if it's not true, even if the playoffs are random, but football gives you a true champion by and large. Rare is the time that Toronto win simply because Golden State physically fell apart. It doesn't give you upset. That Milwaukee team. This year has been totally overwhelming. It has its postseason weaknesses, but it's been totally overwhelming what we're about to throw into. The water here is going to be a totally distorted unknown that we might have like a weird champion, just because the entire thing is so distorted, I'm not certain what to do with it because we've had shortened seasons, and were you know the heat had one? They want a tight also we're. We're okay with that, but this is what makes us interesting to me is. You now have first off Corona virus, right? They're playing a bubble. They're no fans. There's really no homecourt advantage. But you also have Lebron James or Janas with three months of rest before the NBA playoffs star, but this guy's suspect Lebron's good and this is saying a lot will be in the best shape. He's ever been in entering oppose. God's this is where it gets all distorted. Maybe maybe in the case of him, but first of all you're going to have all manner of weird injuries, because this isn't the way that these guys prep for the physical gruel. That is what we're about to embark on, but beyond what's happening here? I have no idea what kind of shape any of these guys are in for like no idea whether the Milwaukee Bucks that are returning are going to be the same Milwaukee. Bucks because they've all been training on their own in a way that would be of vigorous, even though they couldn't train with each other in the Bundesliga, injuries were up two hundred percent because they started putting the fixture super tight together at one point. Didn't you honest say he hadn't taken a shot like two months because he didn't have a WHO? I mean this is crazy. You're right. There's going to be richest things. They'll have one, but when the freakish things happen. Are you gonNA honor them. Are you going to remember them as anything other than an anomaly? Are you gonNA remember them as just a symbol of the most distorted time in our lives have? To, wait and see what happens before I answer that. Of course, that's the way you always sports radio and. I mean me and billy were discussing and I do find it funny like I think Lebron. is currently going through the Lakers roster? Any is convincing. The is that he doesn't WanNa make this title Ron with to stay at home. It's safer, they're. Like I think he convinced Avery Bradley, and then when I think you'll have is a bunch of guys like Mario Chalmers. Waiting outside the Orlando bubble, saying hey I'm free. I'm available I. This could be interesting where all the sudden Lebron James showing up now with Avery Bradley, but with John Stockton and the mailman. Is Lebron James already were three steps ahead thinking that you're gonNA. Put An asterisk next to this title so much like he changed a math by only winning one in Cleveland, but we hold it in high regard if he wins one with dion waiters in. Jr Smith it's an achievement. Personal record books God's if the Bron- wind. How many is it worth if Lebron wins with JR? Smith and dion waiters. he wins he wins to. He wants to and one season. There's a couple steps here. This is what he does i. he tries to convince you not to come now. If you don't agree to not come what he does is and I'll tell you. This happened to me from experience. When I was a West Kendall optimists, all star what they do is they tell you a different time to the game right and then when you get to the game at that time, the game actually started two hours earlier in the coach's son was already there, and he replaced you on the All star team. He had the uniform. To you, that's a thing that actually happened. Who did that to you? The father the son coach. Apropos Nain. Is your money not sure what to do with itself right now?.

"For governor Abbott he's going to be giving a briefing about I'm not a number of things including some retail opening up by the end of the week more on the opening of Texas a and more mobile testing facilities live coverage now from the state capital here is governor and president or other members of his administration on dealing with a multi layered strategies to try to address the challenges that we're staying in the pricing only gas markets the matter is we have a flood of supply in a dry up demand some of the strategies that the president is is either Donner's working on is for one working to try to forge a compromise between Saudi Arabia Russia and another is the strategy that you're hearing about now that is the possibility of using the strategic reserves as a potential of purchasing entity or inflow for some of the excess supply and then there are ongoing discussions as we meet right now in the White House about strategies that could be later on today or tomorrow I know for a fact the president from his administration they about the only gas sector and its impact on the state of Texas economy Texas jobs sector in Texas but also the bigger picture the bigger picture is that we as a nation have become and that independence matters a whole lot to us as a nation and we need to make sure that the energy independence will be able to remain going forward and that requires the ability to maintain the robust energy only gas production infrastructure that we have in the state another thing that I would like to say about this and in the end that is even though what happened price wise overnight was really unprecedented and what we can do news today would be unprecedented the truth is that over the history of only gas production both indexes angle over there have always been ups and downs in the prices of oil and gas and time after time after time with the big businesses in Texas or elsewhere around the globe we've been but also we've seen time and again in time again the way the taxes in the United States have been able to rebound from those challenges and I have no doubt here again we will be able to rebound from this however in the meantime we as a state we as a nation I want to make sure that we're doing all that we can to try to protect it and either support all of the men and women who are working in the oil and gas sector because I have to pay them with a lively who's to take care of they have families to take care of him so we want to be a part of the solution and helping the oil and gas sector here in the state of Texas second thing that I want to cover is just to give you governor have a life the way numbers are progressing with regard to testing and certain other facts in the Texans and provide you some context for those numbers first the number of Texans who have now been tested for whether or not they have over nineteen exceeds is it actually is two hundred and five thousand plus on to give you some context just one two three four days ago that was at a hundred and sixty nine thousand bottom line is we we continue on this ongoing increase in the number of people who are being tested and as I'll explain here shortly you will be able to see an even more dramatic increase in the number of people in Texas who are being tested those who test positive sorry nineteen thousand nine hundred and forty five as of my last numbers earlier today showing once again that over this length of time that we've been doing testing in the state of Texas the number of people testing positive in relation to those tested main S. or just under ten percent the numbers haven't changed what what you draw from that is the conclusion and and that is our our our testing strategy is effective in doing the primary thing that I must do and that is to give the state and local communities a snapshot about the extent to which a covert nineteen is expanding or contracting in the state of Texas because the those who are testing positive remains at about the same percentage as they have been all along it shows there has been no meaningful outbreak and and is is I will explain shortly so there's actually good news with regard to the R. another number is hospitalizations as of early today the number of hospitalizations confirmed for those related to cover nineteen is one thousand four hundred ninety one here again for all these days that I have on my page right here and to the best of my memory for the past couple of weeks this number has remained relatively the same because the number has fluctuated a plus or minus around well you could say an average of fourteen fifty per day what this means is that even though we have more people who are testing positive every single day we have roughly the same number of people who were hospitalized every day that means mathematically the percentage of people who were hospitalized is growing smaller and smaller in relation to those who were testing positive for cover nineteen that is a good thing one thing that has taxes apart from some of the other states that have faced some of the harshest catastrophic consequences of over nineteen is that we have not come close to needing to use all of the hospital bed capacity that we've seen in some other states maintaining a low level of the number of people who are required to be hospitalized as a result of having over nineteen unfortunately the the fidelity rate the total number does continue to increase increase however the number of new facilities is on the decline for the past few days the total number as of earlier today was five hundred and eleven people who have lost their lives far too many mothers and fathers sons and daughters brothers and sisters had been lost for the good news is because in part of the quality of care because of the way the tax is going about this process the loss of lives in Texas has been minimized to be here fraction of what we've seen in some other states I will also like to point out that we are actually seeing a percentage increase in the growth of the number of people who have recovered from cover nineteen that exceeds the growth rate of those who are testing positive for cover nineteen those who have recovered now or in the east six thousand four hundred and eighty six in the state of Texas and so we continue to see good results of those who had tested positive in the past who now are completely recovered from cover nineteen let me put some context all of this and then these are some important factors as we go forward talking about how Texas is going to be opening up opening up for business opening up for other different types of activities our highest S. date for the number of people who tested positive for cover nineteen was April the nine the only day that we had more than a thousand people test positive for over nineteen in a single day was that day which is is accounted for we are now about twelve days in a row below are all time high in the number of people testing positive for code nineteen mathematically that shows that we have a good friend a lot and it is going flat down to the number of people testing positive for cocaine nineteen our growth rate is now lower in taxes this is the time to go over nineteen began being tracked it is now it is human growth rate of just five percent I mentioned earlier about

"Abbott. we just were saying at the end of last segment he is stock with this commission quote to do something. so what is now being reported a special session to expedite the death penalty. what all that is let's be honest all that is is man I need to look like I'm doing something. so I'm gonna do something expedite the death penalty yes I assume he's going to follow up by saying in the cases of mass shooting. excuse me. most of the last few mass shooters are dead yeah except the guy from one that's a line on that dude from el Paso there's one Sutherland springs dad to dad el Paso do dad Odessa del Paso guys alive yeah I'll pass allowable down today see that's exactly how he's now realizing all man I put this commission together to give the optics of doing something and we you're not gonna do anything boy what can I do what can I not that. well it whatever whatever that means at least we know now that the guy apparently courted ABC news got the gun person the person where you don't have to have any top a background check say about gun from Jeff their use by gun from Jeff. even Dan Patrick I guess yesterday it said you need to look at this person a person deal he wants to make it okay work say Jeff will leave his guns to all the kids if they're over eighteen or twenty one. but in the person to person we may have to look at the person the person sales in this state. now I want. should look at it they should they should look at it now I know the answer to that is no they won't because the governor just try to come up with whatever diversion he could. expo whatever that even means it's all you know with how how was it even I realize the governor of Texas it is arguably the most important thing you do you go ahead and sign off on. death. I don't know what I think the governor's office can do to quote expert dot heat well they've got all these appeals on appeals in a week every time we execute somebody hunt for the crime was down thirty years ago yeah I I know I mean maybe I think and you know what that's we've taken to expedite it we don't have you don't have all these appeals. but under the rule of law you have the peel and that's gonna do what. you know the next shooter we only have the death penalty here you think that it is time to it I don't know what made it terror a guide to say say the el Paso dude he knows he gives the probably did all this turn himself in and said I am I am be dead for twenty five years. under this proposed if they do have a cat in twenty four and a half now no there he'll be dead within a year make if they act but I will I don't know what's interesting I don't love all over that the governor's office can do anything in that process because your stay is appeal to the Supreme Court there are some legal things that are and all that well I know I know we're quick to Tim to jump up and down say yay for us on the death penalty let me ask everyone do you think we've executed an innocent person in this state. yeah probably have. probably yeah we we've had some issues with convicting people of committing crimes horrific crimes that have not committed the crimes I had a guy on the show who was sentenced to death twice Michael Morton now Anthony gray all your at your baseball friend Anthony gray who was sentenced to die twice I asked to be think we've executed an innocent person he said yes I go why would you say that and he said point play because you tried to kill me twice. he didn't do it well but on the governors I stand on this it's obvious we know that the do del Paso did it. if I if if this is if this is the answer to the commission on mass shootings to solve the problem of mass shootings in Texas. okay I don't I won't solve anything I'd yell Judaism up quicker yeah. the death penalty is not a deterrent to amass shooter the best that we can tell. okay acts okay let me just say this one more thing if there is a special section called. watch out camping ordinance in Austin the guests were lined up it'll get away from this no I think they'll do they'll do that and they'll do the camping deal because you can do that in a special session okay if they declared is not wholly for that the I'll I'll buy that I think it'll be a lot more about Austin and nothing about guns nothing about Jack's improved probably very little about expediting the death penalty the shooters are dead. it's not a deterrent obviously. they're thinking though is it could be a deterrent to the guy my example again the guy from help the el Paso deal. not gonna get Kay I'm not gonna be put to death for years and years and there's his thinking is I need to come up with something so I come up with this. that way I don't have to tackle that other stuff that might be a political risk this is of no political risk there is no political risk there is no political clout in saying we need to look at expedited the death penalty in the case of mass shooters well I think one thing. there is not what I would like no one's arguing that I would like discussion of the extended background checks the red flag laws. ban on assault weapons not gonna happen don't worry about that's not gonna happen okay. the red flag thing didn't happen correct it's not happened no not happen attacks there is no appetite excel to find something that is as non. controversial as possible. I know we should expedite mass shooters we should expedite their deaths and it's faster. oh okay. thanks. okay that's fine is that what the commission was put together really. it's interesting it's energy has not had this topic said about that part person to person sales right he stuck in a corner I don't know what we can do on the person to person sales have you know about right the person to person sales exactly unless you say if you sell a gun person a person and that said gun was used on a felonious act you could go to jail. sure. okay but my defense of me I didn't know yeah I. I think this I think if we're to predict now the path of least resistance will be again almost a no brainer but okay expediting the death sentence in the case of mass shooters. if any of them ever live again we will expedite their death sentence. how's that that that is a non controversial as non committal as non as much of a non issue is in and I disagree I disagree I think it is if they have legislation where the legislatures worry where it I don't have I had a it will be due process is right he will be challenged it I don't know how much to eat it has but there will be we now he's now with his aides his marketing staff has come up with the one thing that they can say a hot seat we're tackling something..
