Rep. Andy Biggs on the Fight to Stop Teaching Critical Race Theory
"Left with the critical race theory. I'm happy to see that this is generated kind of tea party part you know, part do this is I haven't seen such energy in the Republican Party to fight such an evil, pernicious doctor doctrine. I haven't seen it since the tea party congressman. It's because Americans aren't stupid. They don't want their kids being taught to be racist. They want their kids to judge people by who they are in their character, not the content of the skin. Are you seeing a similar effort? Up on the hill, a solidified Republican party saying Nope. We're not doing that. Yes, I am. I mean, there's probably a dozen or more pieces of legislation from Republicans. There's probably 20 letters to the administration and officials trying To make clear that they're walking off the plank. And I think what you're getting is some of the moderate Democrats are responding that and they see they feel the pressure. They feel the pressure from the base of America, which is center right? Who loved the country who think we are a great country and where we have flaws. We can correct them and become an even better country. That's what we see. And it's powerful and it is burst on the scene. Some of us have been watching that for 15 years or more. But it burst on the scene because Covid forced it out into the open with these school closures in the home school enemies, these teachers unions So so yes, then It's powerful, even in Washington, D C.
Rep. Andy Biggs on Why Dr. Fauci Should Claim Responsibility for His Mistakes
"Is a public figure to even worse. He's not even elected like he has a job, no matter what. And there's this whole like victim Fauci Movement Congressman. I find kind of repulsive. It's not personal. He made really bad decisions and being that public dollars have paid him When you agree to open to public scrutiny. It's all fair game. He is fair game. He is a target. He is the guy. He may not have implemented the policy, but he encouraged the policy decisions that every government at every level Enacted over this country lockdowns these the bogus mask wearing I mean people still wearing masks, even though that that that's come out as being bogus. The notion on President Trump saying, Well, it seems to have some some positive impact. He basically poo pooed that and if, if it works, like the latest study indicates that it does, and a host of a myriad of other studies, he bears the guilt or the culpability. Of people being sick people dying, He bears the culpability of an economy that lost millions of jobs, the emotional and mental illness that resulted because of his His policy advocacy. Here's the guy that they were looking to, Um and everybody used him as a justification for everything they were doing. So he has to stand up to the scrutiny because he's the guy that profound ID those policies. It's that simple.

"It's outrageous. It really is outrageous. They passed a rule saying You can't say anything like that. And then they do it. Congressman Andy Biggs joins us Now I you mentioned you alluded to several other things that you're asking to be declassified. Is there any any subject or topic you could give us Yes. So I've been asking for the Ukrainian election interference documents to be declassified for a year and a half. Now that when you see that you're going to know that that it was President Trump it was a couple, Maybe a new family and that's gonna be occupying the White House. You'll find out some amazing stuff when I get declassified. And then you're gonna have, uh, ways, Actually, Actually, I know there's a request out there floating around saying, Can you can you declassify? Uh, the assassination? Kyle's for JFK now, so there's there's all kinds of things people to be declassified. And about the UFO. Someone someone told me that they were asking for the UFO records to be declassified. Anyway. The bottom line is for the serious site, at least the stuff that I didn't care about the most. It's the foreign relationships with China with the Ukraine on And some of the other other places that we know that there's some family interests from Democrats side that have been involved. And this is so fascinating to me, Congressman Biggs Because here you are in Congress. You and you know, high up in the Republican ranks, and they're still secrets that you can't even access because you don't have the right clearance. I've always weary and this is the The weird part of Rob coming out of a government that keeps its secrets from its own congressman in its own people like what is in there that needs to be hidden. I am to it, They get very uncomfortable. I get very skeptical. Remember? Remember when growing up? Democrats used to be skeptical, too, But it reminds me of one of the Bourne movies where the guy goes in. He's explaining about this operation, he said. Always. We found out then work, so we just closed it down. In Congress doesn't know what what's been going on. It was a black ops operation. Is that the kind of thing that makes people skeptical? So they see that fictional account and then at the same time? You members of Congress can't even see things. And if you do you get people like Eric Swalwell who can see that's that's right stuff that that makes you nervous. Thank you, Congressman Andy Biggs. We appreciate you joining us and we wish you the best as you continue to defend all of these. This onslaught in these attacks. Joe Biden speaks Again and wait to hear what Lori Lightfoot once Chicago to get involved in its coming up after robbing the download Harvard making a move. They want to cancel degrees from those they don't like Senator Ted Cruz, White House press secretary Katie McEneaney. Of course, Texas representative an ex Navy seal. Yes man who gave his I first country Dan Crenshaw. Unbelievable. This is just cancel culture going wild. It's It's only going. If that happens, I think about how many higher learning establishments are going to be doing the same. Some point we're gonna have to stand up and say, Okay, snowflakes go away. Thank you. Your feelings. Do not run.

"Before I bring on Congressman Biggs Ryan, I want the congressman to hear this. Because I didn't comment on this because people have had enough yesterday, Doug Ducey, sitting at the Latinos for trump a round table next to the president. And it got any Moses Sanchez talking about covid and the crowd kind of gives it to the governor number eight listen to this. Kobe and these shutdowns have a huge impact on our economic security. Mental physical and spiritual wellbeing. My Mind It's important that my. There you go. Now let's get some reaction talk about that and so many more things, congressman. Andy Biggs, join just good morning. Sir You doing today Gregor. How're you doing? Excellent. So I I think this I was at that event yesterday and I saw that and I thought it was only that was one. They're probably five or six times people yelled out open Arizona Deuce. You is on stage and he looked quite uncomfortable to be honest with you. And it was right in front of the president. So I'm sure the president knows what's going on here. But what's your reaction to that you just heard? Well, first of all Moses is right most Sanchez is exactly right. lockdowns have incredible. dilatoriness affects and they've been shown that over and over again and the second thing is on my understanding is the the governor sitting there without a mask Right is that. He ran out from backstage right before the president got on stage. You ran up with a mask on, then took it and sat there. which is. Why didn't I think that yesterday? So that was I thought that was kind of a you know par for the course, and then I think the sentiment is is pretty strong that we need to open up Arizona. We still have people who who want to work. They people still trying to hang on with some of their businesses many businesses have closed, but others are trying to hang on and and the longer we go here it's the more impact you negative impact you're going to have people people You know there's an old French French philosopher road something what she said. A track called seen with what is seen, what is unseen, and here's the deal people see some some immediate effect of covert but they don't see all the if affect of of all the harm that's being happy. That's happening whether it's this the adolescent suicide rate. Going up or the analysts suicide ideation rate going way up way up to. The people losing livelihoods, people losing retirement savings to people who? See said half the people that they surveyed did not get treatment or diagnostics from for other medical problems during the height of the Cova problem and it's still going on and so you've created a secondary impre perhaps even tertiary a public health crisis because you've been so single singularly focused on this just the way Dr Fauci said he was he said, we just want to. Flat in the curve that's what he said the beginning they keep moving the goalpost..

"It is mostly aged twenty to forty four. That's the biggest group and they are they are. They don't pass away from this where we should be focusing all of our attention or ninety eight percent of attention is on the on the most vulnerable people over age sixty five by the way this aggregate the and they don't desegregate the statistics data. So you can actually see that the real number is probably over age seventy five. That is where you are most at risk but they don't. They don't give us that information and that's what we should be going. We have more there's more than ninety eight percent. Of Recovery Rate on this other illness, which is incredibly Incredible. Statistic alone should have everything opened up. We have congressman Andy Biggs in the centering of the conservative Circus Congressman the Teacher's Union and the fear porn pushing the media seems to be in control of Arizona right now. Did you ever think that you would ever see something like this happening your own? State? No absolutely not I couldn't. I can't believe it I look. Let's let's just take one other point though if you really care about about the citizens in this state and you really concerned why would you? Basically, criminalize the use of of of a drug that has been FDA certified safe for almost eighty years. Almost a billion doses and and seems to have some observable positive, therapeutic, and prophylactic effect. Why would you limit that to only people with lupus rheumatoid arthritis or if you go into a malaria? Why not let doctors and patients have a discussion have the right to try and make the decisions themselves on this medication, which is safe. And might actually be helpful if you really care instead of locking down every business and and and providing. Not every business but being consistent how you do that to boot why not let people make some decisions themselves with their well. Of course, a congressman you're talking about Lord Uzis and other governors executive orders banning hydroxy chloroquine. So let me have you answer your own question. Why would you do that? If you really care about the people and this has been proven Why would you have an executive order to block that and why would you keep all the businesses in the state shutdown even though the numbers so they should be opened up. There's no. Guarantee you're asking me for a rational response when I I only seem that this is a visual. I. Was Emotion. Don't listen to rationality I mean it's just that simple. I think you're given the benefit of the doubt you're saying is emotional I think there's something else going, but I won't drag you down that road which. Jed..

"Know that they're entirely wrong is that the Democrats the less goose they believe that they're in better shape to obtain more power if that country is able and if the economy is bad. So if you have disarray, so you have the the social. Unrest that's going on. You combined that with the lockdown that have occurred all over the country and what you get is this disarray discord in the country and I think that that my leftist friends believe that that is a way. To create a vacuum and fill that vacuum with a very socialist left wing political ideology. Speaking of socialist left wing political ideology. The schools are making close part of part of me is like they don't have a problem with that because the indoctrination mills and we're GonNa talk about down the shoulder the later. But part of me is really bothered by the fact that in the middle of the pandemic, we had truck drivers still delivering food stores we be as a people working in the store is still. Making sure that all of this stuff was on the shelves, we had doctors and nurses on the front line, a treating patients, and they were seen as heroes. Now, when the teachers turn their striking, they're holding a the schools for hostage. They got demands they want met before they go back in what are we looking at with the schools remained close and especially here in the great state of Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs. Couple of quick points on that James T number one is is even the very liberal American Academy of Pediatricians who were forced politically to back away from some of their statement but they didn't back away from these two points number one children are more at risk. Out of schools than they are going a suffering from Cova, got by going back to school. That's that's the point number one and number two they advocate for safely opening schools and and all of us want to save open schools we want to mitigate risk of the the other thing is is, is you've got a teachers orgnization here in Arizona, just like so many other places around the country that are advocating for a couple of things they want you to sin fake obituaries to try to gender panic. And they're also there's allying themselves with the the. Matter Movement. Here in Arizona that group is and I mean you get some unions like in la where they say what? We're not going to go back to school until you defunte the police. So not all of this has to do with a mitigating risk for children and teachers going back to school, and then I guess the third point and this is really this is really where you need to follow the science and the data. I'm looking at places that have opened. Canada's we others that have opened up Denmark. You're going to see that they've had tremendous amounts of success bringing kids back to school, and if you don't want to if the teachers don't want to go into traditional district's school then by Golly, put the money on the back of the student and let the child go to charters privates who are who are opening want to open and You know if that parent wants to instead do remote learning and they think especially best for the kid, let them make that decision but let the parents have the choice. on how they went to their children educated..

"That's trump campaign aides were campaign aides repeated contacts Russian intelligence. He wrote in his notes out. We have not seen of evidence of any individuals affiliated with the trump team in contact with Russian intelligence officials were unaware of any trump advisors engaging conversation with Russian intelligence officials yet. They had this investigation Muller report. Forty million dollars trump dragged through the mud. It's insane what happened? Yeah. It's criminal and I'm hoping and I've. Talked with some administration officials just yesterday again, encouraging indictments to come these people. Here's the latest thing that came out just yesterday last evening. here's here's what way to understand it. This is supposed to be the security briefing that every presidential candidate gets and president. Trump got it and he had Michael Flynn with him. Who is going to be his D- His head of intelligence. And security when he got in that and he was already the nominee for the Republicans. This is supposed to be that general briefing that you always get well. If you look at the cover sheet. They had just opened up their fraudulent investigations against microphone and fraudulent investigation against the trump campaign was called hurricane crossfire. The other ones hurricane razor. If you look at the very title page of what's supposed to be the minutes of a security briefing. Again I can't say this enough. This is supposed to be security meeting. Every presidential candidate gets. This has a case file number and a case main number. Hurricane crossfire hurricane razor. In other words you had people going in to give this normal briefing. Who are basically undercover trying to entrap then candidate trump and and Michael Flynn that was their purpose. It's outrageous you. You're not going to see that happen anywhere else. And by the way that happened just about two weeks after they opened formerly within the FBI. those those investigations. When they knew already there was nothing there, and it was based on that fraudulent steele dossier, which has been thoroughly debunked and was debunked at the time, so the whole thing was a setup and the NFL and. From the very beginning to get going the evidence if they've just keep declassifying stuff I'm just telling you some of the stuff. They keep easy to classify. I don't know how the Democrats that my friends across can ever ever hold their head up when you got people like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler. Just tell them big fat walkers out there. Yeah, well, he said it's criminal I. Do you think I? Mean Mark Meadows your former A colleague with the Freedom Caucus Chief of staff of the president said last week on TV. He thinks indictments are coming. You want him to come, and we're dying for it to happen. Do you think is ever going to happen? I was told last night again that they they. They've got some on their way. And when I saw that declassified document last night, I said Oh man this indictment and they know it will turn out to be just requests like that can, which is important, too, but wasn't the indictments so I'm hoping. Way? Way I've been told that for a year now, so you know. Sooner or later, believing in the UNICORNS and rainbows right so. Yeah unbelie- we wanted to happen congressman Andy Biggs, thank you for your time your knowledge and and pushing for the right things to happen. Appreciate it. Sir have a great weekend.

You continue to be alarmed by the national debt, which break which breached twenty six trillion dollars this week, congressman. How can we keep going on this way? You really can't keep going this way. It's unsustainable. James T I mean. And here's the way to think of it. In the last sixty three days we've increased the national debt more than two trillion dollars in the last sixty three days, and if and if nothing changes if we're saying the same trajectory we're on by the end of this year will be over twenty, eight, trillion, maybe pushing twenty nine trillion dollars in national debt because I structural deficit. This year is GonNa. Reach somewhere around six trillion dollars. In other words. We will spend six trillion dollars more than we brought in in revenue. That's going way I. Don't understand Congressman. I, mean you look at the numbers? I can look at the numbers. I'm almost any bike. Look at his numbers to realize it. Just, we can't keep do.

"Circus. I am your ring message. James T Harrison the centering the conservative circuits. We have congressman. Andy Biggs and congressman. You all are Suing Nancy. Pelosi for her proxy scheme. You explain what's going on with that. And what are the chances of succeeding at this at this suit? Well number one. Nancy Pelosi is implemented proxy scheme. So that you can get twenty People on the floor and they could actually represent a quorum and do business with up members of Congress being here. Look that is historically. That's wrong. I mean when they burn down the capital Congress met when they had the the Spanish flu epidemic with the killed almost seven hundred thousand Americans. One hundred years ago they met when they were In the civil war and there were battles all around the capital. Congress came in and met and did their business. But she doesn't want that because she gets power this way so We filed the lawsuit yesterday And you know what we can change our rules but you can't change the constitution. The constitution says we gotta be here. We've got to have a corn. We got to meet. We got vote we counter votes etc. And I think we've got good shot. I really do think we have a good shot here to get something done on this. This is kind of weird. Is Kind of disturbing congressman? I mean you have a bunch of Democrats. Basically giving their vote over to Nancy Pelosi here. You Go Nancy. Do whatever you want. And we know what their agenda is but instead of her trying to rally her troops get behind. The you know the bills that they're trying to pass basically she becomes a one man army. That's Kinda crazy. Well Yeah I mean this. That's right. It gives her a lot more power in the center. And think of it this way if you have to get two hundred eighteen votes then she's gotTa make sure that's cheater whipped team kind of lobbies to eighteen. But if she if she only has twenty forty fifty people that are coming in. It's a whole heck of a lot easier to kind of corral those people and then they're gonna the to do this. It's just it's just kind of a way to Give her more power. And that's that's ridiculous absolutely ridiculous. We'll keep an eye on that. Hope you're successful in that Congressman Biggs. Yesterday you tweeted about the president's understanding about phase of abuses and based on what we're hearing coming from the D. and I we we might know the full scale of those abuses soon. Is there any hope the Pfizer court? My go away anytime soon. Golly I wish there were I I you know I've got a bill. That does that very thing and most people need to understand. This is If you and I going to be spied on by law enforcement agency domestically they got to go to court They've gotta go get their search worked or their warrant to wiretap etcetera. Run the Pfizer Court. It's all done secretly and The the standards are are not the same so you don't get the same due process. There's not the same. Transparency is not the same remedies and so it should go away. That's what my bill would do treated like any other court that an American citizen is going to be looked at by police officers but but not here so the president's on our side And he's indicating that he might veto it and I'm going to tell them. Yeah if pass. It comes out and passes please veto this this dog. It's this dog. Should not be hunting congressman. Andy Biggs is in the center ring of the Conservative Circus Congressman.

She to do see that protects businesses from frivolous lawsuits about the Chinese virus can't say I got it from going into your shopping. I'm going to sue you know so.

"Hold a laptop up to a fifteen inch pro and that we brought out a little tiny guy this little little Guy Sixteen leaders now look at the end yes Saudi and this one is really for murless cameras and a thirteen inch macbook pro on the side here and holds ipads and the whole idea on this is that there are lightweight really really well built with the best materials possible made out of sail cloth material that people use and racing yachts and it's got a butterfly oh I design so it's got two different sides you can open and have cameras with lenses attached on either side and that design language that's the same design language that the all of the Greg airbags have right that that kind of dual flap feel we call it the butterfly design so this has been really a labor of love extremely high cost of manufacturing so our prices are higher than others in the marketplace but customers absolutely love the ease and it's also a little bit of a business problem because they they're so well built they don't come back in my more that's been gopro problem Paul apart there's some new products coming out on the market pretty soon and so the the line is expanding and so that that place in the market has been under served for years before we came around this this high quality very low weight durable Hammarberg but I'll also that does something different in the having this butterfly design two different sides because in the past you go by bag and you have to UN's it huge zipper all the way around the tongue opens off and then you have to put your camera attached to a lens down the middle then you have to shoehorn everything else sounded kind of stupid so why not just shifted over to the side and you can have more than one camera attached to a lens all ready to go at the same time so that's how we called it who knew that logic applying logic to camera bag design that's a I mean it's funny it's like you live out in the bay area live there I used to be a project manager doing software consultant and you know it's just it's just an exercise and using your brain of testing taking designs testing the market asking what's going on make a few seldom see what happens get feedback make changes don't make changes order more rinse rinse and repeat right so so what happened to Tamarack is ten is the brand still going or did you did you end I wonder where where's it tech is still going it's just has a smaller product per folio than it did when we bought out of bankruptcy but part of the market is still very valuable it's still in retail outlets all around the world you know places like best buy or or you know your big cameras stores and so it serves a very very very different area of the market more skews not a focus on lightweight more focused on solving specific appear that you have or specific use cases of that of that year on all want to carry it I want it here I want to carry it here here I WANNA put on my back I wanNA fanny pack whatever so that that market is still strong and this this curry gear market is just a different so different slice I would like to call this the photograph market you know these are your folks that have really nice camera gear that pay attention to ready are willing to spend more and get more and get a lot more a this sale cloth material cost I was doing the numbers it's like six to seven times the cost per square yard then the stuff that you're regular came back to made pro wow well so then their bag and they're back seems like the type of bag with the people by that don't WanNa buy another bag it's like the bike like investing in good tripod if you invest in a good tripod versus a cheap one you're going to rebuy that cheap one multiple times you're going to keep that good one for a long long long time same with these bags right yeah what's happening here is that originally came out with one bag it was thirty two leaders then individually that that moved into having three different size backpacks well cameras have changed in ten years more and more people aw are selling off Lars and moving to Maryland camera systems and so those meritless cameras and also the lenses are into smaller and smaller footprint so the bags needed to change to to accommodate them so yeah and that's and the nature of the business so we just changed how the volume is is used so like this one right here is a twenty two lead her it actually came down from twenty six leader and is not as deep to accommodate a laptop in the back because people just really want to carry one bag you can see this African main tag on on yeah I use my gear so that's what's going on and people are using smaller and smaller cameras they're not buying portrait grips or battery grips as often they're not buying these big Nikon Defies Wendy fortune's anymore I mean they are but not in the same numbers so we've skewed the product range to address that kind of shift in the marketplace now well listen this is this is fantastic man you're you're you're an inspiration because you're doing so many things and doing so many things successfully in you make offset you're you're helping assemble and in the trips and all that stuff where where's the place in the web where they can go to find out more about that my name Andy Biggs Dot com that's easiest place to find me for my trips photography that kind of stuff I'm on instagram like everybody else I'm the global photographer all one word and right now I'm going through a brand change some of the website will change a little bit over time to talk less about the trips with me and maybe trips with the services that I provide you as a traveller hey you don't have to come with me if you don't want to but I'll still still participate and setting it up up for a lot of people is it's the it's the logistics of setting it all up the travel piece of it the safety like yeah I want to go to that area but I don't Wanna so you know I wanna come back with all the limbs that I left with you know so you want to take all that out of the mix and it sounds like you're you're the person that's helping take all that stuff the mic so people can go to these exotic locations and come back with all of their limbs and some good photos right a challenge that I've found is that people don't know they don't know and they don't know articulate that may say Gosh you know you know people in in life make decisions out of either love or fear right and you don't want to be making decisions out of fear you WanNa make the from the left side like I love myself I love my time out of nature I want to go on a trip as opposed to I want to go I am fearful of going because I don't know I don't know so that's where I bridge the gap I'm here to help you know I do this all the time oh you are a

"andy biggs" Discussed on This Week in Photo
"Hey folks in this interview I'm sitting down with Mr Andy Biggs we're going to be talking about storytelling in photography a welcome back to another episode of this week in photo I'm your host Frederick Johnson today I'm talking with Andy Biggs World Traveler extraordinaire we're GONNA be talking about storytelling in photography and a bunch of other things is that sort of circulate around that as well as new things that he's working on in his travel photography business any big welcome to the show man what's going on thanks for having me back it's been a while I know life happens right it's it's been a minute or two I think last time we spoke you had an afro or something now what's so it's GonNa be here in ten years my friends getting so let's catch up so what what's going on in your world you know what's what's changed in your photography life and you know are you are you still enjoying the world of clicking the shutter Oh I will never go away I love taking photographs and but you know from from photographic tourism standpoint I've evolved a little bit and I'm I it's it's tickled to sell more and more time more hours and traveling overseas so I'm basically augmenting my business and sitting people on Safari in Africa where I've got a ground crew in each country will they'll take care of you and take you to the best sites so now I'm setting up more customers Ariz specific for your needs whether you're one person for people are maybe a camera club or a family so that's what I'm doing a little bit different in my business but I'm still oh guiding I'll never quit that and I love the graphs that is too cool so I could call you up and say I want to go to Botswana or wherever you know or do you have a do you have a set list of locations where I where you could send me to or do I just picked I throw a dart at the map and say I want to go there and you make it happen a little of both I would say that there are are very common places that people wanna go because they have very very good brands if I say like the Seren- Getty of Tanzania Eh wildebeest in the Maasai Mara I wanna go see mountain gorillas in the those are very very repeatable places to send people to but every now and then someone will say hey listen I really wanna do is self drive trip and have somebody at each location in Namibia I wanNA go photographic sand dunes can you help me out absolutely yeah so I'm setting up that those kind of trips quite a bit these days that's really yeah it's really really cool and it's making a lot of guys on the ground in Africa happy because they've got more work because for years I don't want to say I've been a competitor to them but I certainly have kept all business to myself well it sounds like an evolution of the sort of traditional photography works up where you know you meet your group you have meet and greet and then the next morning you're on a bus or something and you're out and you're shooting dinner that night rinse and repeat you know and then you know I it sounds more like you're releasing the reins allowing those people to kind of go out and explore an experienced these places on their own without a net for for the most part it's an evolution of the market the market has been I would say it was very immature when I started in two thousand and two I was in very early I was helping people I was organizing trips to places that people really had no idea how to put a trip together and for the most part at still the same but people need less and less photographic instruction I've found what they want more or is either come Rodri- aspect or maybe just a little bit coaching over their shoulder to say hey here's what's going to happen it get ready for the shot here are some sample settings mabel maybe to check out and they're less interested in the hey let's work on light room at the end of the day with a beer her and just kind of go through images that's becoming less and less useful for people now people want to explore at there unpaved with their own budgets and perhaps with people like their family members or significant other that aren't into photography at all they just WanNa go and that's actually a big chunk of my business now there's a lot of supply of people running trips now it's been this way I would say for probably five or seven or eight years and that really hasn't it hasn't affected my decision it's been more of you know I've been traveling hard for Seventeen Years Kerr twenty plus weeks a year and at some point you say whoa wait a minute yeah oh I turned fifty this year it's time for me to change the business model a little bit so that I can actually enjoy life a little bit other than being gone all the time yeah yeah I mean you do you do you do one thing enough you know you can get sick of anything you you love steak but if you have it every night you know it's no no no I I love what I do it's it's more I'm trying to find a balance always well it's an evolution thanks yeah it's balanced because you're changing the market's changing people's tastes are changing you're just sort of keeping at the at the customer Zeitgeist people are looking for and you know the irony art and all of this is that is that as I decided to start being an agent and setting up more of these safaris all of my competitors that I've been competing against in the marketplace are now all my customers Jeff I'm setting the setting-up Safaris for groups ads yes yeah so that's like the the photographers the photographer that once run a travel workshop can come to you and say hey yeah I WANNA do a travel workshop to fill in the blank and you handle the rest of them they take the credit you guys split the fee or whatever they pay your or whatever and we talk actually don't charge a fee that's the beauty of this industry especially like so I do a lot of trips in Africa but also India Bhutan and other places around that region that you know I get compensated by the property's not by the people you want to buy it yeah so I so there's no charge you know markup or anything like that on any trip that is up so let me get this straight so let me get this straight and so I'm a photographer Iran it's called this week and photo if I decided I wanna do this we can do this week photo workshops and I want to send people to do you know I don't know somewhere in Ethiopia or someplace like that you know or let's make it even easier someplace that you've already been to and you've got released ships established there I call you say I want to do a workshop on these dates and then then I feel the workshop the onus is on fill the workshop you do all the logistics everybody's happy I charge whatever the heck I want to charge you get paid on the back end from the from the venues cetera and everybody's happy that's how it works that's exactly how it works but actually it's a little more civil simpler than that because if I have a relationship humor friends I might be marketing the trip for you oh yeah well how do I get to be a friend we've been friends for over a decade is I think we can do this I have yeah I've known you for for quite a while that when we had a back when we had a normal the government I think I I knew way back North Idaho there's no such thing as normal cooman so let's switch gears a little bit I wanna talk with all storytelling and and the the sort of the missing x-factor in for my my stand plan you know you're sitting in the middle of this if we know running those who've running trips and you know we'll talk a little bit about your your bank company as well but you're in this world so you know this as well as I do that a lot of photographers advanced amateurs you know amateurs and he may be even some pros are lacking the storytelling elements in their work in other words here's a shot of a pretty picture there's a pretty picture with A. B. pollinating on it you know and that's it how do we go beyond that be to telling the story of that be or of that flower so let I don't know how to answer that other than I'll just tell you my approach and what I teach people and it might help them but you know I think one of the biggest challenges that people take photographs literally for the most part they say you know let's say you're a sports photographer there's pitcher on the mound and baseball and he's GonNa throw the pitch and people photograph bat and it's very literal it's it's it's it's it's obvious and that's a challenge because it doesn't it just doesn't transcend it doesn't really tell you what's going on so often what people will do they'll take that one photograph that hangs on the wall above the fireplace and that's really what they're after but sometimes they should consider taking any of of work to illustrate a story it might be five photographs that might be fifteen it might be two hundred the average coffee table photo book has bad hundred twenty-five photographs in them okay so just just insist you have to get that out of you and the idea is that I take photographs of adjectives not things okay so photography by definition is the graphics writing with light but the problem with that is is it's just a that's really all it is and so I try to use adjectives what that's done for me is that it keeps my my photography consistent over time and as I am out in the field taking photographs whether it's two thousand five two thousand fifteen or two thousand twenty hopefully those photographs have leads together so what I do is I've listened adjectives that are in my mind all the time I'm trying to look for photographs that are positive uplifting uncolorful regal her roic timeless remote and those are all connected so I'm I'm primarily an African wildlife photographer so let's say that I'm I'm photographing a pride of lions like in photograph from sleeping I can Graf won when they put he made a male puts his head up wind in his face that's her roic it's very regal positive it's uplifting sudden let's say he snarls will that gets aggressive that kind of up though that al I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA shoot I want these more you know positive but say adjectives and those are the ones that I choose I string together so if you look at my photographs I'm trying to tell a story to you a slice of reality it's not the whole picture that that nature is beautiful in harmony it's peaceful it's aerobic and that's just my selling I'm selling you a concept an idea okay and so so that storytelling has nothing to do with subject has nothing to do with color or black and white and has nothing to do with shooting style back just Alva downstream of those adjectives. Yeah so you know that so what I have off on Safari and I'm teaching people how to photograph I'm like hey listen don't be so literal don't just grab one subject in front of Your Lens and shoot it you've got trees here you've got grass rocks about other animals you know just because ah there's an implied relationship between all elements inside that scene inside that photograph it's up to you as the photographer to include or eliminate using wider Melendez zooms and you shooting.
House Judiciary to vote on holding Barr in contempt
"The demand from House Democrats for version was nothing blacked out. Republicans like congressman Andy Biggs say it's overreached. Recreated Hobson choice. We said guess what? Mr. bar, either get held in contempt or violate federal law because that's just the way we do things judiciary committee. These days. Jared Halpern is live on Capitol Hill. The House Judiciary committee is planning to advance a contempt of congress, or as Aleutian against attorney general William bar for failing the too subpoenas deadline to hand over the full unredacted version of the Muller report, no person, and certainly not the top law enforcement officer in the country can be permitted to flout the will of congress and to defy valid subpoena. A committee chairman Jerrold Nadler's contempt resolution has been met by an assertion of executive privilege by President Trump. A Justice department letter. Says complying with the committee's request would be unlawful. Lisa Jared, different house committees till hoping to force the IRS to hand over the president's tax returns. But older returns have already been leaked to the media prompting the president to fire
GOP reacts to Trump's $8.6 Billion Request for Border Wall Funding
"Reaction from Arizona, congressman Republican Andy Biggs, speaking on. Fox News about why he supports the eight billion dollars included in the budget for building the wall. They want to build the wall and extended what we're doing with his emergency declaration doesn't get the job done. The reports out AirAsia last couple of years enough fit nil seized to kill between seventy and eighty million Americans in Arizona alone from the border, and that's when you look at that, that's an emergency.
GOP reacts to FBI's Andrew McCabe and his 'credibility issue'
"On Capitol Hill reacting to Andrew McCabe claims the former FBI deputy director interviewed on sixty minutes as he has a new book out USA radio's Timberg with the story. Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe believes he was fired because you open to investigations on President Trump without proof. Mckay. Made those assertions on CBS is sixty minutes. Republican congressman from Arizona. Andy Biggs tells Fox News McCabe does have a credibility issue is credibility is always going to be questioned. So I'm trying to figure out why he's kind of softening anything, but the what he's softening really is always his role in what was going on. That's what he's doing. And that seems consistent with someone who has really been truthful honest to his own agency into the American people
Another government shutdown looms as funding runs out this week
"Another partial shutdown of the federal government is looming as one quarter of the federal government runs out of money at week's end. Arizona Republican congressman Andy Biggs tells Fox News. He believes the committee needs to look for a compromise and get their job done. I think the president's given a ton by moving from twenty five billion to five and going from concrete to steal slash. I mean, he's really tried to to make this thing work, and I don't think it's going to work with this committee. He's going to need to declare an emergency.
"andy biggs" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"As the federal government is set to break its record for the longest shutdown ever. Arizona's governor in both Arizona US senators want the fighting in Washington to stop KTAR is Peter Seymour is live in the news center. Ducey says Arizona has kept the Grand Canyon and the border strikeforce running. I think congress should do its job, and we should have border security, and I've been saying that for four years, I'm a critic Senator Kirsten cinema says she's been pushing federal leaders in both parties to come together and to repeal harmful tariffs, and to end this manufactured trade war. So that our businesses and workers have the certainty they need to succeed. Republican Senator Martha mcsally sites more to more to discuss than just the border wall. It's things like supporting our ports of entry in addition to border security and President Trump won't reach a budget deal without wall funding. He says live Peter say more KTAR news is anyone winning the standoff on border wall. Funding is the government shutdown reaches the three week, Mark. Arizona congressman Andy Biggs tells FOX business. He thinks President Trump is more than holding his own against the democrat. He understands how you negotiate with people who don't wanna negotiate some veggies walk away from people don't want to have a good faith negotiation beings, also says, he's all for the president declaring a national emergency to get border while funding since he says Democrats remain unwilling to fund it. This didn't have to happen. This wasn't supposed to happen. That's the father-in-law of Salt River police officer Clayton Townsend who was killed Tuesday after he was hit by an apparent distracted driver. Peach Johnson tells ABC fifteen although there's nothing he can do to bring his son-in-law back. Arizona needs to pass new laws to avoid another tragic accident. I don't have a problem with people making mistakes. But I feel they need to pay for the only way we're going to be able to do that is to have laws that say specifically and emphatically text and drive at this hour, a candlelight vigil.
Trump, without evidence, says Arizona 'bracing' for surge of immigrants
"Came from Trump that well, quite honestly. A lot of us are having trouble figuring out what the hell he's talking about. Trump said. Quote. The Arizona is bracing for a massive surge. Arizona together with our military and border patrols bracing for a massive surgery. Non walled area. We will not let them through big danger. Nancy, and Chuck and Rebecca manager must approve border spelled wrong security and the law. Well, of course, it's spelled right? If it's spelled wrong. It's improper syntax. And it's a run on sentence. You know, he wrote it. If there was a massive surge that the state of Arizona was bracing for I'm gonna tell you folks right now, we hear a KTAR would be all over it. Now, we have been all over what has been happening along our southern border. Yes, the milk has been sent down. They are training standing around getting ready for the potential of this. And that appears to be where the president got some wires crossed. So last night on FOX business news. All right. They have one of their anchors. Right, Trish Reagan. And we believe it was her show that led to some of these late night tweets from the president the reason being she was talking about the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation. They're going to submit some important filings today. All right regarding the rush investigation. And she was talking about how the FBI was weaponized in order to take down the president moments later. The president tweeted is this really America which hunt about a minute later. Switch on ever seriously. This is by far the best which on I've ever been involved in about a minute later. He tweeted fake news. The enemy of the people. She then started talking about the custom and border patrol training exercise. It's happening down in Tucson training exercise. Yeah, they were preparing quote to deal with the potential of large crowds. A sort of behavior by caravan members should a situation arise. So it was a drill. There's definitely a journal the US border. Accustomed border protection. Sent delta statement earlier this week saying that it conducted a joint large-scale operational readiness exercise at the port of Nogales K this happen on Wednesday. And they were advising media. The state people of these drills. Preparing personnel in the event of a caravan from Central American migrants, this is all boil this is not really happening. So we have Trump tweeting about something that is not happening watching TV in the middle of the night. Tweeting and misunderstanding what he's watching. Now. That's about right. What a shocker. What is surprise? There is no massive surge. At an unwell non walled area along Arizona. There's no evidence of it. Could it happen? Sure. Pigs could fly martians might invade. It's just not something that's happening. So I'm trying to put this together. And I'm trying to understand how this happened was the president was trying to mean. I mean, this is involving on our border and immigration, which is a very important issue in our state indoor audience, so I'm really trying to understand it. So I was happy that Arizona's morning news had invited Representative Andy Biggs on to give some perspective as to what the president was referring to. And and I listened intently. Right. Okay. Representative begs give me some context what is going on. Here's what he had to say, Bruce, what we know is that the some of these NGOs are these groups that are have organized this caravan are trying to mash a significant group of people on the border, and then kind of rushed the border in vulnerable spots someplace that don't have fences, and then other places right there where there there's a port of entry. But that's what he's talking about. Is that is this massive surge that that some of these folks are trying to do to to make us respond? No, no. It's not. And that's not what he said. But anytime someone listen thoughts and prayers to Andy Biggs Representative bakes who has to try to a gleam and discern what the hell the crazy tweet at three in the morning was about. I mean, that's that's not an easy job for anybody to do. You know, I mean from English teachers who have to grade his tweets and give them D minuses to someone has to try to figure out what the hell is he talking about where the answer is nothing based in reality. How's that? And apparently because you can time the tweets were things he's watching on on Fox News that it was video of a training exercise that he thought was real. Well, the there was there was the teas that the FOX business anchor Trish Reagan gave. Bruce. I'll just play it for you. Take a listen to this is the tease of an upcoming story. They're gonna talk about. Okay. And let's talk about it on the other side. Take a listen to Arizona officials bracing for
Apple says U.S. tariffs on China would hit 'wide range' of products

It's going to be up to dapple now says the proposed tariffs could boost prices on some of its products, including the apple watch ABC's.

"We are trying to get angel family representatives from every state in this country. So that, you know, there'll be a point person for somebody to get in touch with in every state and get mobilized for rallies that politicians may be having their. Yeah. Okay. I'm in. It's just it's sad. I I wish there were no other families. Yeah. I mean, it's just it's just gotta just and this is why we do it to try and prevent this from happening. But unfortunately, it's not a matter. If you're going to be affected. It's a matter of when you're going to be affected you're gonna you're gonna know somebody a friend or a family member who's been affected by illegal alien crime. Just because of the massive amount of statistics that are coming in. How do you do it? How do you had such an even keel guy that this happened to me? And then I see some moron complaining about families being separated or or will like Elizabeth Warren said about Molly Tibbets when she said, yeah, I feel bad. But you know, the real problem is families being separated on the border. I'm like you idiot that just happened again with her how do you how do you get the strength? How do you do that? Well, we know we have to be grounded. We need. We know that we need to come from a solid calm place because we never want to become like the leftist radicals that are out there screaming and yelling in the streets. We're never going to be marching and stopping traffic. We feel that a calm reasonable voice is. A way to get the message across to American and you have a I mean unbelievable event. Coming up Friday. I'm not gonna I wish I was here. I wish I could change my flight angel families. You're going to have a discussion, and it's going to be here in DC rights on the capitol grounds were having a rally. We're bringing forward nine new angel families tell their stories, and we have an incredible lineup of speakers, Kellyanne Conway, Sebastian Gorka. Congressman Andy Biggs from Arizona. Joe Arpaio sheriff lamb from Pinellas county, Tim Foli with Arizona border recon in many, many others. And and and I see so congressman Biggs, you know? He seems it's it's crazy. We're a border state. And yet there's like, I know I I I like gosar what he does. But after him, I guess bigs. I it seems like there should be more members of congress that are pro border security. Myers owner Andy Biggs is actually bringing a a border security in a border wall act to the congressional floor, which is a no nonsense. It's just a one issue situation. A percentage of remittances that go back over the border from illegal so their families that will be taken, and we'll be put towards a bar border wall and people need to look into that really support him because we don't need border security tied to any other budget Bill or anything it's a standalone issue, and we don't need politicians adding on pork-barrel crap you know, to try and their their agenda what they do. And then say, how can you be against this? How can you be? They come here. And they want to suck the money out of our economy, right legal. At least we can do is they tax the gover- taxes us to no end. Why can't we tax that? And and built in protection. Well, and the sheriff's association just had a press conference over at the capitol, and they actually have a website going up. That they're going to start taking donations and apply that towards the wall. This is a non fraudulent kind of a deal. It's not a gofundme page at somebody's put up. It's actually the sheriff's association, and that's going to be put out on social media today. So it's something that, you know, Americans if they're really serious about this then donate to this cause something that is one hundred percent straightforward. And if people.
