Puede his been taken up by many movements. From Barack Obama's two thousand eight presidential campaign to the fight for climate justice to the continued struggle for workers rights to Spain's anti austerity campaigns of 2019. Martin Luther King Junior said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice we all know that it only bends towards justice because of individuals willing to put themselves on the front lines of the Civil Rights Struggle Laura Sweater who turned ninety on April tenth. Twenty twenty has never left the front lines. She's a force of nature that has transformed the lives of those who grow and harvest the food that sustains each of us creating the phone welcome movement with Cesar Chavez she is the mother of the modern labor movement also came up with the idea that consumers have the power to shape and push industries like great growers to improve farm worker conditions. She then that. Labor negotiations to memorialize will can benefit in the nation's first of their kind collective bargaining agreements. Deloris is a fearless and incredibly effective advocate legislation. She championed the landmark building nineteen sixty to allow people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish. And and she's never stopped last year. She helped enact leads to create California's Fund for safe and affordable drinking water Quetta who describes himself as a born again feminists consciously incorporated feminism into her fight for workers rights and push Gloria Steinem and the one thousand nine hundred sixty s to expand the feminist movement to include issues of race thereby helping make feminism and Movement for all women not just white women from the beginning. Dolores wet has also been an environmental champion fighting to protect workers from harmful pesticides sanding shoulder to shoulder with native Americans at Standing Rock and picking up litter after every rally she led. I Talk About a fiftieth anniversary with my hero and living legend Dolores Wetter Kelly. Working Fourteen hour days with Heff Foundation to make sure farmwork has have access to protective equipment food and benefits during this pandemic. And if you thought you knew everything about Delores also talk about why she loves burning man. Dolores where are you right now all right now? I'm in the belly of the beast. I'm in Bakersfield California Bakersfield and all of Kern county. You are going through really rough times right now. Dolores is a lot of people that have been laid off. I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries. That are more friendly for everybody. So deloris in the late fifties and sixties when you have founding the farmworker movement and and really bringing those issues to the full when whether environmental issues like drinking water and air quality and pesticide runoff. How did those issues fest? Come to your attention right at the beginning at the very beginning you know. I grew up in Stockton California which is also like a cultural area. I was in a field in. I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries. And so here but we had all of these farmers could children that. Were being bored with these horrible deformities being born without arms without legs so horrific here you had children in Mexico and parts of Latin America. That were having exactly the same type of affection disabilities that were coming from pesticides

state senator Mike McGuire represents the second district which stretches from the Golden Gate to the Oregon border he set the tone of the hearing here's the bottom line we still have challenges ahead at this season were suffering from two droughts one imposed by the weather in one of the hands of president trump poor water management can kill more than ninety five percent of our baby salmon and

state's natural environment he said California salmon population has declined between forty three and ninety percent over the past thirty years crowfoot summarized the state's priorities for protecting the species include creating a more resilient ecosystem enhancing biodiversity and streamlining regulatory actions from our perspective what we need to recover our salmon populations goes without saying we have to restore flows in rivers and the bay delta I think everybody from wherever you are in the on the spectrum of of water stakeholders agrees on that what we need is scientific monitoring and scientific research that is transparent and then informs our management which has to be adaptive we can't lock ourselves in these decade old management decisions and and manage through regulatory decisions that get changed once a decade or litigation that takes fifteen years to get done we have to work to utilize the best science and adaptively manage towards recovery of these these species Crawford said the federal government's promise in nineteen ninety two for a plan to double the salmon population by two thousand and two has failed the state he says has set a new target date

Why Do Cars Have Alarms If We Ignore Them?
"Mark lives in Chicago and loved his nineteen ninety nine. Honda Civic hatchback. Thieves loved it too apparently late nineties. Civic is worth far more than its blue book value in parts alone. Multiple people have pulled up next to him at stop lights and offered to buy a hatchback on the spot. Maybe should've taken them up on the offer. The first time his civic was stolen the cops quickly recovered it a few blocks away. The second time mark wasn't so lucky. He went out to search for the car himself and founded about a mile from his apartment under an overpass stripped of its engine and missing the entire front paneling. Now mark takes the train mark. Civic didn't have a car alarm because like most of us he assumed that alarm where waste of money if you live in a big city falsely triggered car alarms ours communist pigeons and just as annoying blaring car alarm in. Chicago barely raises an eyebrow. There's even a name for it alarm fatigue but does our collective disdain for car. Alarms mean that they aren't effective. We spoke with Christmas. Goey security consultant of thirty three years and host of the podcast crime school. He admits that we all have alarm fatigue to some degree but thinks that alarms still have their place. He said car thieves will tell you. They don't like the noise. They don't like the attention that it draws but it depends on the quality of the car thief. If it's just an amateur car thief the alarm goes off. They're gone to that extent. They work professional car thieves on the other hand. Don't even worry about alarms. Mcgowan says the pros can either disable the alarm quickly or use a number of tactics including dummies keys and tow trucks to circumvent the alarm system altogether. According to Interpol the international law enforcement organization car-thefts worldwide can be divided into two distinct categories widely available older cars. That's quantity and higher end and luxury cars. That's quality marks ninety nine civic fits squarely in the quantity category the type of car. That's irresistible to young street level car. Thieves parts for older widely available. Cars are in high demand plus most cars built before the year. Two thousand can still be hot wired. Mcgaughey said the old cars are a piece of cake. Modern cars all the keys have a chip built into them. That chip has to be married up to the ignition. You can't go in there and break off the steering wheel column like you would in the old days. The CAR WON'T START IF LOW LEVEL CAR. Thieves are more likely to be spooked by car alarms. Then it's worth figuring out if your car is attractive to low level car thieves. I check if your car is one of the ten most stolen in America. That's a sure. Sign your quantity category according to low Jacks Two thousand sixteen vehicle theft recovery report. The most stolen makes models are behind a civic and accord Toyota Camry and Corolla the Chevy Tahoe and Silverado the Nissan Ultima Cadillac Escalade Ford F to fifty and the ACURA INTEGRA. Again older model years are the easiest to swipe and have the highest demand for parts. Mugabe's rule of thumb is quote. Look at the most popular cars today. They'll be the most stolen cars in the country ten years from now another hugely important factor is where you live according to statistics from the FBI and the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Big cities routinely have the highest total number of car thefts. But that's because there are lots of cars in big cities a more useful. Statistic is car thefts per capita in that category. California is king. California is home to eight of the ten metropolitan areas with the most cars stolen per person in Twenty fifteen Los Angeles held the title for the most car stolen nationwide fifty two thousand five hundred fifty nine but these smaller central valley cities of Modesto Bakersfield and Salinas had far greater rates per capita. Another perhaps expected capital of car. Theft is Albuquerque New Mexico number two in the country for stolen cars per resident. There might be a simple explanation for this geographical clustering of theft rates. According to a twenty twelve reports from the Department of Justice. One third of all cars stolen in the US were stolen from four states. California Arizona New Mexico and Texas. That's because there's a lucrative trade in stolen cars and parts directly into Mexico. Although the smuggling rings are operated by large criminal organizations the report concluded that the cars themselves are mostly stolen by juveniles. So if you drive a popular car that's more than decade old and you live within a few hours drive of the border. It's probably worth investing in a highly visible alarm system. The flashy decals alone might be enough to deter thief scanning the aisles in the mall parking lot but if a car alarm does go off near you you shouldn't go investigate unless you're Blah enforcement or security personnel. It's their job to investigate. Alarms not bystanders.
Hells Angel: Sonny Barger
"On a typical weekend nights in Oakland. Nine hundred and sixty five. Sonny Barger had just received a call. One of his fellow hells angels was in trouble at a local bar. Sunny arrived to survey the scene at the four hundred club. He soon spotted the angel in his girlfriend being hassled by half a dozen guys from the local chrome shop. The ringleader had had just enough beers to be brave enough to trash. Talk the toughest guys in Oakland Sunny stocked over cool and collected to tell his brother that it was time to go and for good measure. He stuck twenty-five automatic in the mouth of the ringleader. Just to let him know what would happen if he didn't stop running his mouth. Shut him up sunny and the angel left but the Gulf remained doubled back inside to retrieve her through the window. Sunny spotted the ringleader. Giving her trouble he shook his head big mistake he'd already been warned once. Sunny stormed back in walked up to the guy and hits him on the side of the head with his twenty-five but the gun accidentally went off grazing. The man's skull sunny chuckled to himself. He'd been trying not to hurt the poor idiot but fate at clearly intervened so sunny grant this poor bleeding. Drunken mess bent him over the pool table and shot him again the lesson.

Gang the hell's angels this week. We'll be exploring his club's rise to national infamy alongside the counterculture movements of the nineteen sixties. Next week we'll see how drugs and crime changed the face of the club forever in Nineteen Sixty three twenty five year old. Sonny Bono was president of the Oakland. Chapter of the hells angels. This meant he sat at the top of the burgeoning empire of outlaw motorcycle clubs known for drinking fighting and dealing drugs. Many anti-establishment organizations like these actually rose to prominence after world. War Two military veterans. Who had trouble fitting back into the square world of the nineteen fifties needed somewhere to go and shoot the breeze? Hollywood saw the appeal to the Marlon Brando movie. The Wild One introduced audiences across America to the world of leather jacket wearing motorcycle. Gangs causing mayhem. Wherever they went. But in the summer of nineteen sixty three sunny bargar had a bigger concern establishing his Oakland Charter as the dominant. Hells Angel Club even more powerful than the Founding San Bernardino Chapter. He also wanted to unite with other outlaw motorcycle clubs around the State. Sure they spent a fair amount of time beating each other up and jockeying for territory but they could put their beef aside to unite against a common foe. The cops so sunny bargar had an idea that would eventually become a hells angels tradition the Labor Day. Weekend RUN OUTLAW. Motorcycle clubs from all over the state would unite in Porterville California a medium sized town halfway between Fresno and Bakersfield there was no Setai Tin Ary. Just a plan to drink smoke weed and get up to whatever. Mischief found them. Sunny Bargar led his Oakland. Hells angels into Porterville to rendezvous with four other leading clubs the stray Satan's the galloping goose's the Coleman sheriffs and the cavaliers in all there were about two hundred bikers invading a town of about nine thousand people. At first everything went according to plan with bikers from different clubs bonding over drugs and women then an Oakland Angel Named Charlie. Magoo was having a drink in a bar minding his own business when an old townie through a beer in his face as soon as Magoo leapt to his feet. The old townie realized he'd made a grave error. There was no way he could take this guy in a fight. The townie bumbled an apology but it was too little too late. Magoo punched him in the face. The old man stumbled so Magoo punched him a second time. Then a third. The old man collapsed on the floor. Knock out but instead of settling things the townie went home grabbed. A gun came back and pointed it at Magoo. This was his town. These angels needed to go Vista Magoo had backup a group of fellow. Angels grabbed townies gun and turned it back around on him. They all took turns beating him until he had to be sent to the hospital. Meanwhile sunny was presiding over a Bachan. All that had taken over the Porterville main drag motorcycles were racing each other down the street the bikers girlfriends and female hangers on. Were having wet. T shirt contests. Everyone was drunk high or both. The angels stopped any vehicles passing through town and forced open. Their car does if they were young women in the car. They attempted to pull them out so they could join the party whether they wanted to on not not. Everyone was thrilled namely the Porterville. Chief of police. He worried he was losing control of the situation so he called out to other counties for backup by nine thirty PM over two hundred and fifty cops rolled into downtown to stop the madness. Their first move was to set up a blockade hoping to direct the bikers. Down One road out of town once was set the chief got on the Bullhorn and announce the bike has had five minutes to clear out. Meanwhile fire trucks spreads soapy water down the main streets making it impossible to race they turn their hoses on bikers. Knocking them off their harleys. Local teens even got into the action climbing to the tops of buildings and throwing bricks down onto the street faced with an army of guns hoses and bricks. The bikers had no choice but to leave town. Sunny led his bikers to the parking lot of Sports Center. A few miles outside of town to assess the situation as they counted their ranks. They realized they were missing for members who had been knocked off their bikes and arrested. Some of the other clubs wanted to give up and peel out. They trusted that lost members to bail themselves out of jail and find their way home but sunny refused to leave without all of his Oakland. Hells Angels Brothers. So at two thirty. Am they turned their bikes around and headed? Back to PORTERVILLE SEVILLE COPS had lined up squad cars to block the bridge leading into town and they were prepared to wait as long as it took for the hells angels to leave town for Good. Sunny wasn't intimidated. By the show of force. He ordered his bikers to line up in a counter blockade across the other half of the bridge. If the cops wouldn't let people into town. Then the hells angels wouldn't let anyone leave either. It was a standoff. Eventually a highway patrol officer approached sunny to try and broker peace sunny told the officer he just wanted his men back and would gladly pay the twenty five dollars for their bail. The officer took them to the portable chief of police. But the chief didn't think twenty five dollars was enough his counter-offer fifty thousand dollars. Sunny exploded in anger. He was trying to play by the rules. And these cops were trying to take advantage of him. Sensing a confrontation. The highway patrol officer scrambled to get the chief to agree to a low a bail sunny and the chief agreed to fifty dollars. And the Hells Angels. Pass the hat to raise the money. It seemed like a fair resolution. Yet by the time sunny and the bikers finally left town. They found another row of cops waiting for them. Ready to pull over any angel. Whose bike wasn't up to code and as a group devoted to customizing their rides. This was damn near all of them. This was the last Straw for Sonny. They were done being stopped by the cops. He ordered his men to outrun the police and they did in just one night sonny. Berger proved himself the undisputed leader of the hells angels and the baddest of all the outlaw bikers in California.

We're coming their children from places like Texas Arkansas Oklahoma bucks mom and dad had migrated out to California from Oklahoma but he was born there and he was actually raised in a train car that his father converted into a small house for their family. So Monroe was a true son of Bakersfield. He grew up in that environment. And you know in addition to Buck Owens Merle haggard is. He's the other are pillar that those are the twin pillars of the Bakersfield sound and Very different in a Lotta ways. You know they. They worked with a lot of the same musicians they had similar. Sounds at times But where buck was really all about that upbeat fun Kinda music. Moral was called the post the common man and he wrote at the common man he wrote some really insightful full and in thoughtful reflective kind of songs about the migrant experience in California and about heartbreak and you know he just was one of those rare people who was gifted as a true musical poet. And I put him up there with Bob Dylan or or Woody Guthrie you know the icons of of American can songwriting. Let's hear what you're talking about here with MIRA. Hi Gertz California cottonfields mm-hmm Labor camps bill with worried man with broken dreams. A means as well this daddy ever came he. Can you talk a little bit about the influence of Bakersfield on other places on the world you talked about how radio came into play and how these two pillars really influenced other artists but give us a sense of how that sound traveled yet. It's funny because I think today People who may be are not really early into country music but they just kind of have an idea maybe of what country music is. They're probably more apt to be thinking of Bakersfield than they are to be thinking of The stuff that's coming out of Nashville Bakersfield that Real honky-tonk Twangy Electric Guitars Pedal Steel Guitar. You know and I think if people just have a rudimentary understanding understanding of what is country music. That's kind of what they think about And so oddly. Enough Bakersfield influenced the public concept of of what country. Music is Almost more than any other strain of country music's history and Ken Burns recently. Did this fantastic country music documentary and really shown a spotlight on all of the various roots and branches that make up country music's complex story But Bakersfield is so important in that And it really I think set what Buck Owens and Merle haggard did was take that music from a local musical scene introduced it to the world in a way that people really just latched onto and it had reverberations that we continue to hear in modern country music. Today this is very fascinating. I can't wait to listen to your the entire box set which I can't carry on a plane. It's kind of bit pounds. I believe it is eight pounds bounds but beautiful artwork and and such a rich history. A booklet two hundred and twenty four pages right. That's right. That is a book in itself. thank you.

"Who were pioneers of the Bakersfield sound really adopted that is the story of their own family and said you know that was really an accurate thing and so these folks move from places like Oklahoma Arkansas Texas and they came out to California and they preserve their traditions. They preserved you know the type of communities that they had back come and not included the music and these were hardworking people. They worked in oilfields. They worked picking crops at the end of the day. At the end of the week they wanted to blow off steam so dancing was going honky tonks and beer halls. And that's really the roots of why Bakersfield Music is a little bit more upbeat more drum oriented more danceable more more danceable. And this box set actually starts with field recordings of migrant workers. Can you point to a specific song on the set. That typifies the sound that you're talking talking about the nineteen forties. Yeah well it's interesting. Because the the recordings that were done at the camps and these were government camps where essentially the the the government had to step in because people are living in absolute squalor. WHO had gone out to California in search of a better life? The Roosevelt Administration stepped in. Set up these camps where people could live and the recordings that you hear from those camps were very much just a guitar kind of folk song oriented you see reflections of artists like Jimmy Rogers early country artists. But then as you get into the nineteen forties really get into this western swing thing. Where there's fiddles larger bands and Bob Wills and the Texas Texas playboys were really popular Western swing group that actually relocated to California in the nineteen forties and they played up and down the west coast Actually played in Bakersfield every week in nineteen forty-six And so there's some great recordings on the box. Set of Bob Wills and the Texas playboys live in a Bakersfield radio station and that really gives you a sense of.

"From NPR IN WB. You are on Moseley. I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here and now a historic day is unfolding in Washington right now. Members of the House of Representatives are debating two articles of impeachment against President trump for abusing his power by pressuring foreign leader to investigate a political rival and for obstructing Congress's Investigation Gatien of it Massachusetts Congressman. Jim McGovern Lead Democrats Defense of the proceedings. Madam Speaker we are being tested on something greater than our ability to Toa Party party. Line something more than our ability to score the next great television soundbite this is a democracy defining moment. Let's bring in our political political strategists Bill Press Democrat and hosted the bill press. PODCAST I bill. Hello Jeremy and Alice Stewart. Republican strategist joins us today from little rock right. Alice Ellis correct right so let me start with you bill. How big a moment is this after? All that has led up to it. It's huge it really. is you see you started out by saying it's an historic day. It is It is only the third time in our history. Has Everyone has pointed out that an American President has been impeached Easter. We'll have been impeached by the end of the day Is this historic day. I think it's a sad day I think it said that Someone and could so openly brazenly abuse of powers of the Office of the presidency and the decision about whether he should be held responsible turns out to be a strict party line decision on one side certainly without apparent any apparent Interest in the facts of the case And I think we know how it's going to play out and then it moves onto the Senate. I don't think it's a moment that anyone should be gleeful. cheery about Alice. How do you view this day? It is a somber day and it's a sad day for many reasons a specifically the founders of our country and the those who wrote the constitution who should never intended for there to be single party impeachment which is exactly what we have and here in Little Rock was actually in little rock when Clinton was going through the the impeachment process and the big difference between this And what we had twenty one years ago was that President Clinton lied to a federal grand. Jury there was no no if ands or buts about it. It was a clear case of impeachment. This is much difference and we've heard a lot of talk from Republicans and Democrats as we've gone through this process but this morning owning Jerry Nadler said something that really jumped out at me being critical Republicans who are opposed to impeachment. He said we cannot rely on impeachment to correct misconduct. Act in terms of what happens next or or he actually said. We cannot rely on an upcoming election to correct misconduct while at the same time. Democrats cannot rely on impeachment to correct an election. They didn't like this is what it boils down to Democrats. Didn't like the past election and this this is the remedy for it and and this is not. What impeachment is all about Alice? If I made Jeremy just to jump in the second I mean. That's just silly. This is not about whether or not not Democrats alike toward happen in two thousand sixteen. It's what Donald Trump did on July twenty five and before and after Trying to subvert the next American American election but I want to I would just want to add thirty two. There are two things that are different about the Clinton impeachment which by the way was twenty one years ago tomorrow right December nineteen eighteen One is that was not exactly a strict. Partisan there were thirty one democrats in the house. Who voted to open the impeachment inquiry? There were five Democrats in the Senate who voted to convict Donald. A President Clinton so if Republicans are all hiding behind Donald Trump. They can't complain. That's just one sided. It'd be easier for them to fix it by macy facing the facts. I vote in the right way the other thing I would point out is i. Can't I believe that. Republicans were so gleeful to impeach Bill Clinton for yes lying under oath about a consensual act of oral sex and now they totally ignore a president who bribed a foreign president to influence the next election. There isn't it's night and day difference between what these two presidents are accused. Let's listen to hear here to what President Trump has been saying about this Yesterday reporters asked him if he accepted any responsibility at all for the impeachment vote. No I don't take any at zero. To put it mildly. They took a perfect phone call. That the had with the president of Ukraine and absolutely perfect call. You know they all know it nothing. We're said wrong in that. Call to impeach. The President President of the United States for that is a disgrace. Alice let me ask you. Let's assume that the House impeaches president trump and let's assume that he is acquitted by the Senate and let's even assume that he gets reelected Next year what lessons should he take from what has just happened. I will go out on a limb and say that all three of those assumptions you just made will come to fruition. That will happen but but the lesson that the president will learn Republicans will learn is that Democrats will stop. Stop at nothing to pursue their agenda. He shouldn't take any lessons for his own behavior for. Look Jeremy any lessons or any type of consequences consequences or any repercussions if the the people feel like he should suffer or face as a result of this phone call. He will face those on election day and if he is re-elected then that is what the will of the people states and what they want and to that end Democrats who have been pushing this Impeachment Line for all these weeks as we've had this hearing they have not moved the needle in any way shape or form or still looking the latest is polls the average of the polls fifty one percent of people do not want to see this president impeach- so this is not a winning argument for the Democrats and to the president's and many Republicans and this will only serve to embolden Republicans and even swing over some independence who may be frustrated with this process. Assess because this is what they're seeing in Congress again. If I may as I said the last time we were together forget the polls the polls are meaningless. They should I have nothing to do with this conversation. Yes ninety percent of Americans support background checks but Republicans don't say oh look at the polls we gotta pass it now. Suddenly they're concerned about polls when it comes through impeachment and I think the pro back to your question Germany. What the president of the learning I would hope would learn from this? Is that nobody not even the president. President of the United States is above the law. That's what's at stake here. But unfortunately I think he will walk away from this knowing that as long S. his cowardly Republicans. Stand behind him. He can get away with anything. He contrasts the constitution. He can bribe a foreign earn president he can undermine our very democracy and these cowardly Republicans in the congress. Don't give a damn okay as we look forward to January Korea the probable trial in the Senate Just quickly let me ask you to view starting with you Alice. Do you think that there will be witnesses in that Senate trial there. I assume there will be but they may not be the ones that everyone is is certainly hoping like Mulvaney. Mick Mulvaney John Bolton no I don't expect them into to come forward anymore than expect Hunter Biden to come forward or Adam Schiff to come forward The Senate will go about this in a very judicious manner. I I think it's in everyone's best interest to go ahead and move forward and put this behind us so we can focus on more important things that the American people are concerned with. But that that remains to be seen but anyone who's expecting to see Any new revelations come out as opposed to the the senator is going to go in there get the job done and move Ford Bill. Do you think that there'll be any witnesses. I would agree with. Allison I didn't think the witnesses that everybody would allow to see like you jump. oaten Hunter Biden. Lighten Joe Biden are GONNA show up. There may be some witnesses but I think the key question is will there be a fair trial. And I must say when Lindsey Graham says yeah I don't Ah I don't consider myself a fair your when Mitch. McConnell says I'm GonNa let the White House counsel decide who testifies how long we stay and what we do I. I don't see any prospect or any hope of a fair trial in the Senate and that is calm and that's exactly how Republicans view the hearing that went on in the house Under Alice they were invited to testify in the House and and Donald Trump said nobody testify. Nobody sent over any documents. We are not going to cooperate. Great the fact that they were not there in the house is the White House has fought they held back. Let's spend the last minute and a half. We have talking about twenty twenty the and there's a debate tomorrow night. Between Seven. Democratic presidential candidates Biden Sanders. Warren Buddha Judge Globus Char Yang and Steinmeyer Bill I to you What do you think the candidates need to briefly? I just need I think they need to hold their own tomorrow night and I would hope that they will talk about impeachment and and what it means to the country And then I think frankly from any of these debates we've seen the needle moves so far I regret the the fact that Cory Booker is not going to be debate. Holding costs does not going to be in the debate. So except for Andrew Young It's going to be an all white. All White Person Show which which I think is not good for the Democratic Party and do you think Alice that Since Joe Biden has been gaining a little bit of momentum that he he may have lost earlier on that that. Somebody's going to go after trim again tomorrow without a doubt he will have a target on his back as well as Buddha judge I I believe and the real takeaway from this is the fact that we're seeing the two of the more moderate candidates by Buddha judge who are gaining strength in the polls and this should serve as a lesson to the other candidates that those that are too far hard to the left are the ones that are falling in the polls and we can also take a lesson from the brexit. Vote the ones that were too far to. The extreme did not win so the bottom line is the more moderating voices are seemed to be doing well in the Democratic primary as we think about brexit the next step now is going to be whether Britain can stay together because Scotland wants out now so we will continue to monitor that Alice Stewart Republican strategists.

"Think but then it's it's a sticky situation. No pun intended with with the lord's baker fields because you wonder a couple of things one is it these people in power that are using this sick sick fetish of pedophilia to control each other and have one have something on top of each other right have something over the other person into can to be able to control them or blackmail them or is it just they're protecting these predators because of wealth or or their or their position of power so it becomes an i would lean to the latter two then that it some the giant group with some giant conspiracy if that makes any sense at all well no i think it does in only because because i've been you know waiting in these weird waters for for a while now and really trying to come up with an answer myself and thinking that you know the more i look at this case and the more that i dive into these different avenues that go off the main road of this case here that i think that i'm going to find my answer sir. Unfortunately i didn't like i said there's also other cases that that some consider to be connected to this and i may not have have gone down the right road off of off of the main road yet to find that but in the end my my general opinion is the look there was illegal activity going on. We can't deny that we also can't deny that there were plenty of murder's going on as well but there's there's also a situation where some people may just not have known everything that was going on or known what was at the rue of murder or at the rue of of this whole mess and therefore didn't take actions against any of that you know there is a certain. There's one thing to turn earn a blind eye to something and there's another to just be blind to it and not know what is going on and i think in this situation listen. i think i've walked down that path enough where i think i gotta try to to give this. Some kind of conclusion say we're good. Stop here okay so he's actually by the hat look it's it's very difficult with so many characters misdeeds invariables to really figure figure out and state what was really going on in bakersfield for all these years was there in fact an underground network hiding in the shadows and pulling strings wchs and where these murders many of them still unsolved connected to the legend of the lords of bakersfield from where i sit after reviewing this this whole mess <hes> i see a name that is repeated throughout this story and a general theme that seems to follow him. This is robert mistrial grell by his own admission and others he had a horrible childhood. He was selling himself at a young age trading sexual favors to men for money drugs in anything else to get him by right and while of course i find the actions and behaviors of the men who chose to employ him as illegal illegal immoral and frankly disgusting. It's very tricky for me to go as far to call those specific situations abuse. I understand he. He is a child and not of legal age but to me it's somewhat appears that robert was able to end this sex for hire relationship at any time with these men and in fact did so when with the help of another brutally murdered and robbed one of these men and could be suspected in another case as well so this story i just i mean it's just full chock full of victims and a lot of predators robert just might fit into both of those categories. I'm not certain as for glenn fits the second murder that we discuss. I have to wonder if he is the outlier lier in the story. Was this like a budding dean. Coral situation or is it as simple as wants. His wife passed and left left him alone. We have sick man that turned his home into a playground for teenagers filled with alcohol and they simply simply did not prosecute because they lacked the ability to do so right that there wasn't something to cover this up. They just didn't have the ability to prosecute a q. Him and therefore did not bring those charges forward and had it's not died be suicide or be it murder who's to say that they wouldn't have drug him into court at some point four daynuss murder eventually i also want to state that the double homicide committed by william tyack who planned murdered and then bragged about doing so just because two gay men were his neighbors that today likely would be prosecuted as a hate crime time and it's very difficult to figure out if those crimes had nothing to do with the quote lords of bakersfield old or if the lack of proper punishment what should have been a death penalty case very likely does have something to do with it. You know what i mean. It's it's tough to figure out if the lord's bakersfield are at work and some of these situations or if it's just someone else interfering with justice for unknown reasons. That's what i do think that we have is in fact a network of men who frequented the same locations and search of similar entertainment. They live secret lives and desired the company of young men and or boys. I'll keep in mind something something very simple that we have to remind ourselves when we start to look into conspiracies conspiracy theories and these pedophile rings and all these people possibly sibley in cahoots with one another anytime you have a person or persons committing illegal acts you will have those same people covering it up. Uh whether it's they're covering it up for themselves or if they're helping someone else and that's where it gets very difficult to truly discern what is going on in this situation and in other situations that we look at is in fact. There's no doubt that there's a cover cover up. It's just to what extent is that cover up. How many people were involved is just one person. Is it a whole army right of predators that are out there. It's there's no doubt to me that most of these men very likely knew each other again they frequented the same locations they were in search of similar things you.

"By renfro for a live in caretaker for his house. This was a house any modest but nice neighborhood of bakersfield but this house was noted for its fortress like bars on the windows and neighbor said that the shades were always drawn anyway renfro and biggs were playing pool and renfro made a pass at biggs biggs eggs said he let it go but when it happened again a few minutes later bigs grabbed a fire poker and bludgeoned renfro forty times over the head ed biggs was then rifling through the house looking for cash and then he stole renfro car and went and picked up a friend this is eighteen year old william blake and ship the to return to the house and stole a safe but were later very disappointed when they found the safe contained. Nothing of value biggs was arrested and charged with renfrew is murder. His defense was a variation of the quote gay ed panic defense. They alleged that renfro was a pervert and biggs attack on him was prompted by renfro advances advances it turns out and it appears that neural renfro had a history he on at least three prior occasions asians lured young men to his house using the ad for employment made advances and then actually raped one of these men. His house was found to be missing interior doorknobs. The doors required a deadbolt key to open them so one could not not always leave of their own free will once inside. It's kind of like the bundy method that they used in his car but inside his house renfro throw it appears may have been a violent sexual predator biggs was ultimately convicted for killing him but only four involuntary manslaughter and he served only three and a half years even though he had a rap sheet going back eight years this is going back till when he was about about eleven years old he didn't get a double charge for manslaughter plus robbery. My notes only state that he was convicted of voluntary. All interior man's it might not poor press charges if they stole a safe and there was nothing in it though so that that's a possibility well his rap sheet going back to when he he was eleven this included things like assault and battery shooting at police extortion robbery and burglary wow so this is viewed viewed as basically a slap on the wrist and it did outrage many people at the time particularly gay rights activists who believed that big got off easy because simply because renfro was gay there yeah but see here's here's the issue again we have. We have a a case where somebody ends up murdered and then we have robbery and some other things that went down during the commission of that murder we have allegations that are brought forward against the man who is is now dead and unable to defend those allegations. It's this is a whole whole big messy story and around that same time we have william tyack he threaten threaten shot and killed two gay neighbors after some kind of confrontation and it appears he did so simply because they were gay rights hate crime yeah yes so this has a similar outcome tyack was convicted of only involuntary manslaughter of one of the men despite by having threatened to kill them and then bragging about it afterwards one writer said of the result quote this case would reinforce a national impression of bakersfield and kern county being a place where violence against gays is tolerated end quote in the wake of these verdicts. The state attorney general was convinced to take a look at whether homosexual victims of violent crime were being shortchanged in kern county. There were a lot of her for a long time and history sixty seventies eighties. It seemed that there was a contradictory history in the kern county justice system some killers of gay men got light sentences despite the law and order approach kern county prided itself on <hes> while some well well-connected powerful gay men escaped scrutiny or got off easy despite having sex with minors. It's really a situation where you see all this this going on and you have to me can only throw your hands up at the hair and go what is going on here. What truly is going on here. Then we have attorney general john van de kamp he established a commission on racial ethnic religious minority violence los angeles us attorney. Thomas coleman headed up the investigation of the bigs in the tyack trials in which the defendants received light sentences allegedly only because of the homosexuality of the victims coleman said quote what you're talking about is corruption whether the victim is gay or not in the presence of sexual orientation as a factor has in the past at least given the appearance of unequal treatment and quote after studying the situation he established a campaign against hate violence and encourage stiffer penalties for cases involving violence against certain groups including gays it was a start but it did not address the systemic problem embodied by the lords of bakersfield. Yeah this is going to heat up to because one of that activists in one of the people leading this charge for stuff stiffer penalties <hes> as actually is going to be murdered. Marcia jacobson was a forty eight year old millionaire real estate and criminal defense attorney and bakersfield and he spoke in in front of the kern county crime commission urging. These harsher sentences for criminals who perpetrated violent crimes against homosexuals jacobson himself was gay and known to frequent the bakersfield greyhound bus station. Apparently this was a popular meeting spot for men dan and where ed buck had also been known to frequent bakersfield police knew about jacobson and had looked into allegations of sexual misconduct made by an underage boy but charges were never filed then at the bus station he met randy handy ray back in who was nineteen years old and this man went on to live with him for eight months jacobson provided food lodging and ajab including tuition for school but required sex in return is a sugar daddy beckon wasn't gay and and he said later that he was disgusted by the relationship but he needed a roof over his head he resented jacobson and he broke the house rules in in fact. He skipped school two days in a row. When this happened jacobson kicked him out and back in left the house he returned a week later. You're demanding entry into the home and even climbing over the back fence. Then he went inside the unlocked sliding doors once it's inside he stabbed jacobson in the stomach ten or eleven times and then he proceeded to rob the house he drove jacobson's car are full of stolen goods all the way to los angeles and he sold the car then he tried to escape to mexico but he was turned in by a friend of jacobson's who he had called for help here. The lenient sentencing ran out back back in got life without the possibility of parole but again it was a case of an older man surrounding himself with young men and one who ended up killing the him and yeah this is going to bring us to the year of nineteen ninety eight so depending on who you talk to a number of years passed before any anymore murders occurred this seem to have anything to do with the pattern surrounding possible members of the lords of bakersfield as you said captain nineteen nineteen ninety eight we have said sheffield who was a prominent education and health activists in town. He was found stabbed to death and his mobile home. The murder weapon was a knife and he was robbed. Police discovered that he was leading a secret life. One that did not go with his public image at the time he was promiscuous very social and was said to have no enemies and possibly was last seen with a young man in a cowboy oh boy hat and a local bar this case to this day remains unsolved and to be perfectly fair and transparent. No one is is really sure whether it has a connection to the lords of bakersfield not but it's often brought up during those discussions yes a similar the situation this again we have a tough time figuring out what cases to include and what not include and again who depending on he talked to that can change drastically so let's go to two thousand into because this is where things really really really start to fall apart. Okay we have fifty-seven-year-old bakersfield assistant district attorney steven tyler he he had a public image of the carrying do-gooder the public servant a good samaritan who took a drug addicted youth under his swing. This kid was a lance hillis who knew stephen since lance was five years old. His father chris worked for steven tyler thousand as a district attorney investigator after he spent several years in the bakersfield police department tau tousled was gay it was considered an open secret and he seems to have fixated on this young man lance who was under under the age of eighteen when taller started grooming him got involved with meth at the age of sixteen and was not welcome at his home home at his parents home because he was doing drugs tall zor took advantage of the situation and offered lance a safe haven a place where he could stay at first glance stayed at tall slurs home for several months but he told a friend he wasn't comfortable there air and he was there just for the food and for the clothes and for a place to sleep now he would leave but he would always end up going back act too tall hall this mostly when money ran out for the drugs that he bad seemed like as one of his only options once in a while when when he left he would take one of calls irs cars to witch stephen taller would call the police but would never end up pressing charges for a stolen vehicle. The police knew that tells her was spending a lotta time with this young man when lance finally got his own apartment tells her co-signed the lease and it doesn't seem like anybody's really sure how lance was actually paying the monthly rent but you don't have to use much of an imagination through art to come up with an idea so speculation of course was taller was paying and he was a regular visitor two lances home taller continued to supply lance with food credit cards lodging a car and a friendship such. Che's it was gone. He was providing with a little edginess. Well lance continued into a downward drug spiral. He was stealing. He was crashing cars and he was injecting drugs into his veins. His family was i was extremely anxious among other feelings for him to kick this drug habit. They actually wanted him sent to jail. They thought the this would be truly. The only way to break the cycle of addiction that really had had a hold on.

"I got into a fight with one. And I thought I was going to beat the mess out of them. He got me out there. And man, he hit me a couple of times. And I was like oh dang this could really go hard to paint. Okay. I'm in trouble. And so, you know, I thought back, but still I overestimated are underestimated that dude and almost ended up big time trouble. But so I don't know if they're car could be that guy. I don't look at him as a fighter. I just I just don't I'm sorry. They're not trying to you know, what I mean. I I just don't see him as that. Did this is where I disagree with you. I got car for variety reasons. K one break this down. From from from just tell the tape. Okay. He's younger first of all he weighs more than me. And he's he's working out more. So you know, he's got power behind. His punches Stephen has reached even as I six three six four tall, brother. So he's got he's got long got that reach. He could probably keep them way with jet. See here's where and seems as from is from New Yorkers from Brooklyn. Yes. So he's from BT decay, but see their cards from Bakersfield, and if you're a California p person or Bakersfield Bakersfield and barstool mixed up, but he's from Bakersfield do. What's in Bakersfield, not a damn thing? There's nothing bagels. Look Bakersfield is is the spot that you meet somebody halfway like, oh, I'm coming from. Yeah. I'm coming for Vegas. Just meet me in Bakersfield, I'll drop this off to your kid off to your with it. That's the media plays. I know for experience. So so so you look at that as like, okay, you're into armpit of California Bakersfield, the the most famous people to come out of Bakersfield beside the cars, I believe Matt Barnes Barnes's from Bakersfield. And then you got Nick D as in his brother, the you have fighters. So so yeah. So you figure during nothing doing Bakersfield book thrown if you got an opportunity, so if you're not playing football, there's only a couple of things you probably gonna be doing. We're going to keep this this initial class clean because I'm not gonna say smoke met and have sex. But hey, I'm the saying there's not that much to do Bakersville. Now. Maybe I don't know true. But the end of the day I like car because of that because he is that Bakersfield he's got that little edge to them. And I think you see a little bit more than grooving bringing that out of car wants to be coached hard. And I think that at this point. This is a good thing for Derek Carr. I think he's going to get in a position to where that that. This is going to bring something out of him almost like when farve win the rehab, and he came out just so laser focused then putting a Super Bowl that year. I don't think there's anywhere close to when the Super Bowl right now. As of today, not even close, but the have your quarterback get in. And and being that, I think they can they owe max inste- and Stephen a Smith. Thank you to have the quarterback come out and show this publicly. Yeah, I agree. I think that you know, this is good to get Derek Carr fired up. I will say again, then I think Stephen April has that. Oh school. I'm at the YMCA that old man strength that we know, you know, I mean seriously like I mean because I play hoops right now at the CIA, and I don't have the athletes where I could jump out the gym anymore..
