See how all these like crazy ego to people. You know we all love ourselves. Yes, how he dylan island all these egos! I would love it if you so interesting I always said that they should have taken I mean now. It's like too far gone, but if it was like season, two or three of Andrew pump roles if they would've done like a summer abroad where we would've went to. Miami Hawaii Vegas New York anywhere else can still do it and yeah, but it's like everyone's married and old and having kids and people you know aren't as involved anymore, but if they would've taken all of us made us live in a house together and open up a new restaurant train, the staff like. Zillow hands a little show, but it was my idea I. Oh I think. She heard me talk about it. God Damn, you know. She tried to like copier show. She had said she wanted to make a vendor. Bull type show interesting I. think that would have been good. But I think we should still go on some trips next year though I agree. No I already told you that Mike. Let's go to freaking Vegas Miami s 'cause like good partying times like that's what I want I want. Some real housewife shows my damn. I wish. We would have partied more. You Know I. Wish shooter went out to places. That weren't just La. Yeah, it's like it's so boring. We'd like to be in this. A combined box like I. Want to get black down. Get George. Go to some the good time. I think next year I think we'll have more good times like that. was kind of like an experiment gone wrong. It's just a growing pain. Venture new brothers and sisters. GonNa Fight. Anyway over grow and mature cell I wanNA. Go back today. Wind the day we met. outsor- I WANNA know. What was your first impression of me? Here are the first first person. I met so honestly I. Did I met You at the club? We talked about this long ago, so I've. met You a sense of like I took care of you on a table. Irony said hi to. You goes like Oh, I'm here. How interesting China's the first person I meet and you're like you're really nice to me like it wasn't like any like I was like wow, she's really pretty and I like her ponytail and I was like she looks like you I. Think this is fun. And then you were nice to me, and it was kind of more at ease moments like okay. The girl that's like. Little like spicy kind of like me doesn't like not me at the restaurant. Okay, we're. I think this is going to be a good time for me. Yeah, obviously, I was. Maybe you're on everyone's GonNa like. He's so much fun. Yeah, exactly I was like she likes me and she's a first person. Then everyone's going to like me like this is to me frigging a piece of K. Yeah and. The record skips sure bright. Kid and then it was like five months later. Sri Right. What do you think is the hardest part about starting a new job? In general, I just fitting in with the people especially when they're tight, knit groups for such a long time like places like Sir. Just take a lot of places in L. A. Lot of people keep your like the same job long time cliquey. And I think that getting into a new group especially on a new part of town is very hard. I know that unless you live in La, probably don't know. Being a west side girl going to like West Hollywood. Piazza Hollywood people is very different. It's so different. I've only worked in west side places like hide answer and I started them kind of around the same time, so it was just like. This whole new dynamic I mean all these new cliques, but now I found my place out Sir a little bit, but it was definitely not easy or like any restaurant job it's. Hard To. And then you don't know who to trust. Who talked to I usually? Don't talk too much. Yes, I noticed that and my problem is I think I talked too much and I trust everyone. Right off the bat. That doesn't ever work out in my favor or no, because I feel like I, know one even really spoke to me period because I would never talk I would never express an opinion I would never say anything. I just psychoanalyze everywhere. Pig fucking crazy, and who is in and I'm like fuck with them. I do not fuck with that girl. That girl tells us and you know I kind of like. Pinpoint it, but right I liked you. Yeah. I, don't think we would inflame. If we didn't totally, and that's Mike. Even if like were not you know working together in the restaurants been closed down. You know we're not filming whatever, but it's like we still talk every week. We still hang out as often as we can like. Hanging out now. On my end I was like my bad with everyone I'm on my way MC. Here's the gate code, and then it's tomorrow Charlie Never Tony. Sleep. The worst I've well say I'm so excited for our new adventure coming up. So? We are both moving in with our boyfriends in San Diego Oh my God. It's so scary I. It's like we've already been doing quarantine with them for about four months now. Yeah, so we've already forcefully been living with them. Yeah, basically, and still paying rent and places that were not living in an. It's honestly fucking insane like it's at this point as well if I can be with Corey for more than thirty days straight and he didn't WANNA kill him. I think that's pretty, you know. I mean I'm excited I'm really excited. We're GONNA be by each other. This isn't like you know, and it's better if I've always told you that we're doing this together. I think that's a good sign you know. Honestly everyone. I'm no fucking Princess Diana. I don't come from royalty like I can't pay all these bills without income that I used to. Like I my income. Just like you like. It's an a lot of people in towns like a Rastrick change. Yeah, it's a huge change and even like win, if like unemployment and all that it's still. Not enough to survive la like how I used to. frigging great life I, feel like I was so. Maybe this is also another thing that I told myself. So much more grateful for everything all the moments and all the good times and bad times, because just like everything can just be taken away from you and matter of like what days yes, happen and everything was boom gone crazy, and it's still gone. Yeah, and the fact that you haven't gotten your unemployment and it's I. I know praise the you know. Cal hasn't gone hers. either. That's so in the same, so maybe I just was on like a shoot the other day. Another I've met probably like twenty thirty people who still haven't gone. I've been like you know helping each other out doing what we can. It's GonNa. Come you know, but then God him smart and also saved my money. God Forbid I. Bought shoes all the time. My God ain't nice purses like the same bad like from Nordstrom Rack Damn I would have bought all of that shit ever wanted I wouldn't be in such a shitty situation right now. Just teaches you how grateful you should be for stuff absolutely and like taking care of yourself because man. Do I miss getting facials pedicure getting my nails done my like once a year boats. Didn't get that in twenty twenty. But it's okay it'll be fine I. Mean I think like you know. Everything happens for a reason. And now you'll be in San Diego for a little bit which fun. Nothing's permanent, also in life, no totally and like San Diego. I'm just excited for a fun new adventure. Like. How can you city for a little bit? Yeah, I mean La is so like infected right now. Now and shut down and it's like I. Just I don't even want to be here. It's like I need to be here once a week to come in and do my podcast, but other than that were not working in La Right now so I'm out. Dishes are virtual, but I mean if I had an audition. I'm obviously I always drive for them or have a shoe. To ever to a purpose from roaming anything I'm doing so I think it'll be good and like I, when I've been in La since I was had I'm GonNa. move out like in a month and a half, so I'm going to be here as much as I can and I just in San, Diego, it's not in our area. It's I don't have to wait for grocery stores I. Don't have to pay for parking I. Don't have to like there's no one like flipping me off every five seconds much driving fast enough for that. You know I have a terrible homeless problem. I Don I probably don't carry carrying knife back and forth from my car. Yeah, so fucking nuts right? Wow, yeah, good change is for her. Not that far no corey's houses like an hour and twenty minutes. Yeah, and if you think about that Venice, Burbank has the same. Name in traffic. It's like forty five minutes without. So, what's the difference? I know I've already been living in Palm Springs for four months same distance as San Diego, and also I lived in Vegas for six months I was Gonna say I if I could my first whole half of like my. Career in modeling I was coming back, and forth from Bar Sto, so it's like if I can do to three hours traffic. You know I've done this before I've slept on couches I've been like on the floor. This is not the worst scenario and you know whenever Sir Backup Auditions Atkin the. Frost and yeah, and you know we could even look at places together like I think it would be I, think should. Stay tuned. We'll see what happens Charlie and Sheena Adventures Twenty twenty one. I mean we they now right? I mean we do have something fun. We're working on together, but you guys are going to have to stay tuned. Try by the possibilities are endless. What we can do I feel like we have so many things in common. Get Weird at this point you've really is like because we're actually so different, but there's so many other sites where the weird. Maybe it's six something with our signs. Yeah, the whole rising Sun Moon fuck into all of them and. What they all mean to be i. don't either I just I know I'm a rising gem nine and my Moon Sagittarius I. Don't remember what mine is, you have the coast are up. Yeah, obviously one of those. I'm still one of those bitches. Even though I. Don't know what. It means something I have no fucking idea what it means. They fucking mean something. I love when people can interpret it and they're like. Oh, you guys are compatible because of this and like yeah I like people always tell me corey I aren't compatible on like well. That's where it's wrong. That's. Real I am. Good Afternoon Charlie it says son and Aquarius Moon in Pisces, ascendant Scorpio. Okay, so I have no idea none of ours are the same now. I have no idea I don't know. Maybe it's just the southern California half Mexican half white thing. You know have the same interests. Yeah, it makes sense I don't mind it. I feel like if I said. If we good thing, I clicked with someone. Like you really the only person that I was like Oh. This bitch gets it just like commute, so yeah, because I think I did see like a lot of myself. And you and I might mean. We're ten years apart, but I took myself back to where I was when I was twenty five and I. Just I think that was right around when he started at villa. Blanca was like twenty four. For some reason, how is regarded the show twenty, five twenty six? Okay, so say me Yeah Sorta like twenty four twenty same thing, yeah! La Right after may twenty first birthday started working team so annoying. I worked at the private members to guy. Yeah, for like two years, and so then I guess I was twenty, three, twenty, four, hundred started at villa, Bianca and then the show started two years later. So that's so fun. It was just like right around the same time like age wise and our lives, because if I was younger doing any of this shit I probably like it would be all bad. I was always like regretful that I didn't move to La when I was eighteen thousand. Okay so much further like you know all this stuff, but then if I probably. Would have been here that young I would have died or some like you know this breezy really after twenty one. It's perfect. Yeah I in even I still felt so young. Even be non vendor pom-poms. Sand Lake mentally now. I feel so much more mature and I've learned so much, and it was such a good hard time. That I've learned so much about myself than even look back a year ago and I'm like Oh. My God I mean they're you know some cast members could technically like be old. Enough to beer years recalls dad yeah. God forbid. That's crazy to think about because it's like it doesn't seem like there's a big of an age Gabrielle like you're sixteen years older than me. Yeah, that's nuts, but I feel like in l.. A. Doesn't matter you know day. It's like I'm just always say now. It's Sonja. Morgan says we're all ageless. Yeah, it was like when she laid on like a twenty one year old or something or like. Don't worry. We're all ageless Agai-. Last summer I know frisky little thing. I was just like you know what of Courtney? Kardashian can do it. Then you the fuck you on. That's how I live my life. Do whatever you want when you want. And if people don't like it, you can go right on my comments more of A. Diary literally seriously when people comment crazy shit I'm like. Do you not hear what what are said to someone like? Literally like what the Fuck Are you saying? Yeah, go right it somewhere else because I. don't care. There is a question that came in I. Don't remember who said I screen shot a bunch of which we'll get onto at the end, but one of them was when you said to. Write about it in your diary, someone. If you keep a diary yourself, I do. Have a journal only nightstand. I have a few I. DO actually have a meditation diary. Okay, unlike the whole life actually had a diary. and. It's funny at so Kim such a girl, but the other day read my like journal from last year about all my goals for this year and I was like nothing. I can suck fuck this like, but that's not your fault yeah pandemic. Him Land The fucking pay. Like. What did I mean? There's so many people who has weddings and I? Know always be worth have gotten canceled this year. What do you think for you? As been the hardest adjustment in the pandemic? Just like not working, or is there something like personally? That's been really hard for you. meant Salihi. It's been very challenging because I'm someone who was always working hard and likes to be in control in the moment I lose control. It's like not good for my. My brain at all I just immediately go into the slump I'm not happy. It's hard for me to get out of it and the same thing with working out at the gym for me has all I? If I don't go to the gym every day or workout like I'm depressed. That's just what it is really mean person so not having that for the first two months because after that I was like I have to get out of this. It was probably. It's still is the most challenging thing going through. It's very mentally draining, and then like you open your phone and there's always some negativity, and there's something going on, and always and then yeah, then people are being mean to you on top of that judging you for everything you're doing, and you're like pitch trying to do my best. Like fuck off, but. I told myself the other day now. At least I'm eating I have food. Even though I'm spending a lot of money on bills. I still have some of that money to spend on bills. Felt like there's so much more that you just have to focus on what you can control, Marian just like the first couple of months. It was just I couldn't focus on anything but drinking and playing video games. Rock knows. You. You don't like video games I love everyone love me. Call of Duty Yeah. I'm obsessive holiday. Duty Hours he so I can sit with my boyfriend injuring. Click a twenty four pack of beer play call of duty all day. See. I think it's better that I. don't play because we would be so unproductive if we were both like squad together. That like I'm like Oh God I. Do Not Miss I. In Corey when I'm with him, really with thousand percent like I'm better than him. Yeah I WANNA. Start a twitch because I'm like so. Yeah I love video games. But it's like a whole. That's a whole other world that is to have you ever done that virtual reality ones. I wasn't a commercial for one, but I didn't do. Yeah, but I didn't. So I gotTA play, but I've never actually got to play at someone's house. What do they call like an Oculus? Ashley Cole Yeah I did that once we were at there was like this pop up like candy. Land type of wasn't called Candy Land. That was another one I think I forget what it was called. It was this big like Arcade Candy whatever pop up downtown La and it was like me sandoval. Schwartz and like Max or something was like three of the guys and myself, and it was one of those like call of duty, virtual games, and I've never played a game of my life and I one. Really we. All of the boys and I was like wait. What I didn't know what I was like shooting aliens and needed everywhere. Everywhere and I beat. Everyone and I was like okay. This is fine, but I don't WanNa. GET SUCKED INTO A on a regular basis because we so unproductive and like never workout Ya see that's my hey. It's hard work in an apartment. Yeah, like you know you have your Palm Springs House, so it's a little bit easier, but like my two by four. It's just. You know it's hard and people below mean upstairs and I'm trying to like. Burpee is linear right now like what the fuck me as? They're good for you. Know I'M I don't watch me do them. It's probably worse for my neighbors. Well, the good thing about being in San Diego now is we have a free gym to US and a free personal trainer with Brock. Yeah. Do you think who actually do it? Though he'll actually train us? Yeah, but he's not fun to chain. With a moment. We could play and he'd be like fuck. You guys out, yeah! Over you girls, you complain all the time, not fun with by every time we work out, but it's like it's just because he wants the best for me, and he knows what I'm capable of, and he wants me to push myself, and he's just not easy on me I'm not used to that, but love him so much for it because I know what I'm capable of, but he's just. Just so hard on me sometimes and I'm like dude. Chill brow like I don't need to do this and it's fine. The don't don't want better for yourself and I'm like oh the lectures things. Dad and I'm like I might remind you. You're not my personal trainer. whom pain you're my boyfriend. Working out should be fun life. I know boys are fun to work not at all, but like. Jim We like just our separate ways. Trainer so I like I'm like. Can you chain me like like I've Sumerch fun working out with him yeah. Nice? I know I missed my trainer to Yeah Calvin is like the best buy I will say working out with brock in quarantine like I. Have you best? I've ever had. And it definitely works. You're super ninety. Five times when I saw you the other day when I was in palm springs all the damn she now. You're fucking Tinier than me now. I mean I definitely am I think the smallest. I've been kind of in my life I was like. Skinny which was growing holiday like legitimately ANOREXIC, my loss like your of college, and like my first year in La, and then if I would eat, I would take laxatives like when I. It was bad like I did every like master. Cleanse Detox. I went on like Kito or not. It wasn't keyed up. I was like the Atkins Diet, and like I did everything I was psycho I was like one hundred and one pounds it was. Odd by I was just so obsessed with. Anything. And then once Kim Kardashian became a thing I was like. Oh, it can embrace my hips and my crazy. I always think like what's GonNa Happen in five years? The new, you know the new norm. Yeah, even next year. I like we're starting to. Evolution is the natural, not saying anyone else's and natural, but like I know it's so interesting to see what's the next body type like like these pants that I'm wearing. These are my high school cheerleading pans. You ask like what are you wearing, so we don't because we. End Up accidentally matching really not on purpose. But. It was like we both had a rib. Do Crop Tank and Black Pants last week basic pitch? Before that was a black crew neck sweater, but with block leggings and black tennis shoes. It was like a basic shot. Like, there's no way you could match me today. Be Seen, but I feel like I am smaller now than when I was in high school, but I never used to work out then either like my natural, whatever way and I've actually been. Putting work in because you know like I. Don't think we're going to be trying again anytime soon. The miscarriage was really hard. It was hard on my body emotionally physically mentally. And Yeah and so I'm just like you know. Let's just focus on being the healthiest best versions of ourselves, and just getting in the best shape of my life, so whenever you know six months a year two years whenever it does happen again like I'm just like snatched, and it's going to be easier to bounce back back like Melissa Gorka exactly what? My Guy. said. Three three kids yeah, looks so good musical visit them agree. Oh, so I have another thing so I know we tax about this a little bit earlier, but one of the questions that came in was about Santeria. Wish. I'd first of all I just know there's a sublime Song Adam factors century AH I didn't know what that meant I just thought it was the name of the song, and it was a fun word. And apparently it's Mexican witchcraft. Let's look at the right correct term, so no one yells at okay. It's the most common name given to religious tradition of African origin that was developing Cuba than spread throughout Latin America. Okay, so yeah, when you said that I was like wait. Why Yeah I mean I don't practice witchcraft. Why did someone asks maybe because he's joke now? Maybe I don't know, but I do have an alternate. My house and I do like. I do candle work than I like to do. I might rub my body here and there and like kraken them water to see what's happening, but. I don't spells on people. I was GONNA make a sour jar. When everyone was pissing me off so I was like I'm on. Do you know how to talk? It'll tell you like what kind of Tiktok you're on the edge. Talk. Okay, some learning so much about everything and my Have some family that I used to be in that kind of stuff, so I'm like well. If this is the my roots and people are fucking with me, the normal learn how to fuck with them. Using my boyfriend always makes fun of me to He's like you think it's on my guy when I'm gonNA. Kastri all your hair to come out, and then you're gonNA believe it's. I'm just GonNa Never, but Yeah, it's not I don't I. Maybe I said it somewhere I think I posted a picture maybe of my alter. Yeah, that's what it was. Yeah, but I had no idea and their new said it was like witchcraft whatever I was like. We was yeah I. Mean I, it's just fun to play with the other side of the world. Yeah, for sure I love spirituality. Maybe it's a little bit, if like it's against my Catholic roots, but still Catholicism has some type of like you know. Yeah, but I mean. That's where it's like controversial, because it's like you believe in the afterlife, but then you can't believe in like psychic type of things. It's like That's what I'm saying, so. It's Kinda hard, so it's. It's like this like weird. You know like a lot of interest started from being Catholic and the. Cool like praying techniques, and like I would go to these interesting like camps and stuff, and learn all these things about like spiritual world and afterlife, and then you know then you want to know more totally. We should totally go I want to see a psychic so bad I'm saying all we ever. Drunk I know you guys keep saying that I should get drunk to like any went to sleep that night. We were in my house. We have Blake Joe. Johns, I wanted I. Want to like get a reading so bad. Yeah, well I have a couple as you know, get psychics yeah so indefinitely. I needed to like like I've been waking up for the past month every day round. Four am four am four forty four, and it's like those are weird numbers. Yeah I'm like what's forty four. Yeah, someone Mike, who the fuck needs to talk to me like what's happening, so I, WanNa go see his psychic. Oh, like a medium. Okay, they're so hard to find and that's their whole shits. You have to find one that you connect with that you do know is legit and like they have to be able to connect dots that like aren't Google that. Most people at close to you don't know like. Like. That's how you kind of know like even in my last reading with my psychic Eden She said like an image of Vera. Wang popped in her head very random thing to just gas. You know like let's say you're not legit and you're just guessing that. Yeah, when literally earlier that day I was talking about if I ever do get married again like broken I go that route as people who are both divorced, and that's not like our number one priority. Yeah, but my aunt said should never make me another wedding dresses like one dress per person and per family member funny I was like Joey. Exactly I was like. Wow, guess. We'll just have to call my friend. Vera and my mom was like Oh, my God. Have you seen how good she looks slightly. We're on her instagram. Never Emma so cute. Yeah, but never in my life of I talked about Vera Wang, but that day, and then I had a reading that night and she was like. Yeah, like your GRANDPA with you like like it was just. It was so crazy and there's just like little things like that make. Did you just guess Vera Wang on? There were things that I didn't tweet about it I wasn't doing a story like. Shit she acting either and Salvador looked at. You know we need to see one see one soon. Go ask like I mean well you don't ask questions, or can you yeah, you can ask questions like it's been a while since I've I saw some New Orleans and then I saw one when I. Like I kinda moved to La, and then after that it's been a while, so you can either like started out with just like I usually say like whatever you're getting just like. Give me those messages and then at the end they're like. Do you have any questions? So you can always ask questions even with the Tarot card reader that I had that Jamie also had to reading with and some of the things that she said like towards the end of July for Jamie are starting to come true and. While no way s literally up. Well. Let's let's go see and I mean if it wasn't for her. I wouldn't have taken a pregnancy test really. God have a child today. If anybody, her and I was like we what I thought she just like. You know like maybe okay. Let's say you're a fraud. Froze my eggs. Yeah, of course I could have a child today if I wanted to go. Insane, but then it was just the way she said it and I was like. Hold on I'm five days lay and I went and got a test. And you know low behold I was pregnant. That's fucking crazy like it out, so we need to see your. I. Don't know what's going on and I. I don't know how to get through to anyone. Okay well a couple. Good ones and my prayers aren't working my candles working I'm like what the fuck will do. I need to do. Yeah when they talk to me. We'll get it. Set Up. That's for sure. Have you ever saw an like an off afterlife reader like a medium? I've got a re read one time about. You're not afterlife your past life. Has to about my past life one so the psychic who was on the show who had tried to get Dana to sit down with? Told me about my past life, and that's cool and it was crazy. Because the things she sat I was just like that all makes sense and again. That Google -able things that were yeah. How book knowledge like was really gnarly like still to this day or when I tell the story, it was like things about my ex-boyfriend which I don't WanNa get into the podcast because I. don't like giving him any. Yeah, but I'll tell you later. It was just like. Oh my God that makes so much sense. Yeah, see I need to go. See someone. I need some answer, yeah! Like, it's so chaotic. Such, crazy past year, so many changes. How many moving parts a lot of crazy things just in your life in general i. don't know if you WANNA. Get into that as much because I know you've talked about it on other podcasts. You definitely didn't have an easy childhood now I think the biggest regret I have maybe was me being someone that's so stern and quiet that it was so hard for me to open up to people and. And that you were the only person I did open up, too, because you know I, do battle with depression, Pedia, St and all these things and it's not easy to be someone who I mean I know that like of course I'm all about mental awareness, but it's still hard having these issues and they're not easy to deal with, and then like bless my boyfriend's heart, and it's also hard to be in relationship when you you've had such A. Hard childhood and you know you. You don't think you're capable of a lot and I like during quarantine. That's why it's been hard for me. Because I feel like I'm back to square one with myself like all the work I did in therapy all the things that got over with. It's like all surfacing back like I've lost control again. You know I feel like I. Heard this longtime ago the girl. Girl. Who Lost Control when she was sexually assaulted, wants control of everything so like losing my job losing control my acting career like losing control of like my place right now like all these things. It's like Oh my God. What the fuck is going to happen, but I like that's where my spirituality comes in time myself and that's why I'm so happy. That's a good sign from God and the. You're going to San, Diego because. It's not easy, but people see I'm sure you feel the same way you're like four seconds on. TV does not describe who I am. No, or neither does your instagram now? You know like not at all like if you and I think that's what I've been trying to tell myself that I really need to be myself on Instagram, the good, the bad and ugly because I could help someone and people understand me more like people would not. Surface level, non Pasta, eating horror because like. Out All you. Eat Pizza and. Cookies and everybody thinks it's a carb. Thing might get in on and off like if you knew Charlie you this bitch, only yes, carbs, carbs and cheese. You don't fuck with noodles. That's okay. It's like you know. I feel like. Not, having myself shown in the way that I knew I could have shown myself because I was so nervous for being on TV, which is like fuck understandable. Yeah, like you have five cameras in your face. You get starting a new job like trust me. You'RE GONNA say some stupid ass shit. Being nervous and you're going to hold back a lot to because you don't feel safe with these people you know. Each other for so long. Go Round sharing my story to everyone. Because also like you know. We found out later down the line. How like someone talk shit about me for sharing my story? Lend those like Oh, I, was telling you. I'm in therapy in lake. That's why can't go to some parties for filming because like I'm depressed like I've. I have suicidal thoughts. I need to take care of myself before I have to go to some fucking party with you guys and you can't accept that and you're gonNA. Talk down on it and it's like fuck you. Then it was like I turned into this like cold. Little bitter bitch was like no like I'm you know if you don't WanNa fuck with me? Don't fuck with me and so it's like until someone understand or really put yourself and like put. them in your shoes. It's like their own little. Never understand absolutely you know, and it's like I. Never like to be a victim. I like to be a victory now site thoughts. Why get so scared about sharing who I am in sharing my pass because it's like I. Don't people think I'm victimizing myself? You're not asking for sympathy. You're just describing why. I'm a weird girl, and that's just who I am. And I always try to tell people that to. Like, even like Cristiano Mike, Mike if you got to know her, like trust me I'm like you guys have things in common that you would never exactly know exactly, and it's I'm also way more I feel like my. No giving a fuck comes off immature, but it's actually very mature and a sense of like I don't care because I've seen life five before my eyes before, so at that point, it was like i. don't care anymore. I've almost died like I've had something so traumatic. That flipped a switch in my brain like a positive. Positive switch. It was like I. don't care what anyone says. What anyone thinks about me? I'm going to do what I want when I want how I want it, and if people don't like it, then they can turn the other cheek, and that comes off probably a little bit immature, but in my view it comes off of like no I'm just am who I am, and there's just no apologies for it, and that's where to. It's just like you know what if people don't want to take the time to get to know you. They're not worth your time, deserve. Close person in their life, exactly I'm also not going to go cry at a random dinner and yeah, relate to me like no like if you are cool enough, then you get to come inside the cool claws, yeah! Side. It's like fuck that you know. Yeah not like and I. It's just like I yeah i. just feel like there's so much more to learn about. I've been learning that, too. That's why I don't like. That's why. I love like watching the real housewives from the start to like you know the end, 'cause. It's like why even also judge people for their past like we're all going through things, we Wa- made mistakes. We've all said silly and things. I'm sure we're not like putting on our. Board like with the sticker on like I'm so happy. This happened for me. So glad I said the stupid of that Shit, but it's like it's like if we're just more forgivable and understand with humility. And just like all fun and games I like we'll have more fun. Yeah, Tina, even the viewers stop taking everything so literal will yeah and have fun with like. Bring a bag you know. Let me do thousand early two thousand TV where it was like. Be Themselves, and no one had a judge you for every single thing you said was like this is who she is nothing else. It's like no 'cause even like with you being picky with food. It's like lot of people don't know how far back dot goes they things. Like superficial like I'm not going to eat noodles, and they have no idea. Where that comes, it's yeah, it's like my own I. Have you know I? That's something I'm not too comfortable talking about, and it's been very hard for me to, but it's not for me. It's not just trying food. Yeah, like I have so much anxiety trying something new, because it's out of my control and like my boyfriend. I like been with my boyfriend. have cried and parking lots because like I'm not that I'm scared, but it's hard for me to be pressured to try new food items. The just brings me back to like times where. Things happen to me that were unfortunate, and it just gives me that same anxiety and it's like. Let me get Outta here, and then I just panicked and I cry I. Cry or fight. And, then I don't want to explain myself because I'm embarrassed and I. Don't you know it's hard to let people know in your past? Yeah, when I'm ready for that I feel like when time comes and a share, my story a little more and. More confident in myself and. Respect with my family and other people of the parties involved. You know because it's also not just me. It's people involved in the stories you know and it's. It's not an easy topic to talk about. It's really not, and it's way more than surface level. Yeah, I mean A. Lot Of, people. Not. Just me like I've gotten so many messages from people. Like. You Know Damn Mimi saying that you know. I understand that you can't try things I have the same anxiety, because maybe and see, or this happened to me and I'm just like. Yeah, it's yeah, it's and then when you make. People feel bad for their anxieties, and they get mooring shit right. But even just a little that you do open up like. Helps People. Like maybe you'll be ready to go into a full story one day. Maybe not. That's okay. That's your decision, but just yeah. Putting anything out there that people can relate to. It really does help people. It really does you know I I was always scared to share parts of myself, but I'm starting to learn that if I'm more vulnerable with the audience. They're going to be more vulnerable me exactly and I try and. You know even like you doing what you just did with your miscarriage. It's like that's not fucking. Easy anyone. No, it's not easy, even though it might seem all like rainbows and butterflies. It's really hard. To try and remind people like to nauseous judge US based off a couple minutes of an edited program or a few static post on instagram like because if you like I remember before you started the show Danika was like stalking you and Dana like these are the new girls, and I was looking I was like. Okay well. She's coming off this way based on Instagram, but I'm GonNa you know. Get to know her first, and it's like that's how I work, too. Yeah and I remember even like page from summer. House said that about herself like when she started this show that like. If you look at just like her instagram, it's like yeah could look really like superficial. Look at me I'm pretty look at my, but. Then and who cares you know, but it's like then you actually get to know the person you're like. Oh my God much depth there that you're not gonna see on instagram because that's not what instagram has four. Yeah, it's really fucking stupid that mindset that really do ya, I don't post anything. Even like you know everyone I'm so like I. I'm so scared. Even show my real self on instagram. Because if I do then you guys fucking don't like them either, so it's like what do I give you? Yeah. What do you WanNa? Go? What do you want? What are you? Seriously, a lot of questions that came asking about Corey and how you, it's okay, so my first job in La, was accused new accused billiards off Wilshire. Yes, get all cute fucking. La Classic rates. I I was actually living on someone's and going back and forth from Bar Sto 'cause I couldn't find a job and couldn't get like you know. Apartment had a job. And Some pattern girl was like. Hey. I have a friend that works cues. You should go apply I. where the place I live. Now I also used to sleep on their couch so I use their address, and said I lived there since it was close to cues. Yeah, it was my sister's friend from college and I lied to them I said how to apartment I was like good to go. And, then I got the job started working at cues. My sister's. Roommate? Best friend moved out of the House and she gave me her room. Thank God and I've been there ever since, but. So I started. Working at cues accuses like you know, even though it's like this pool hall like College Sports Bar by. There's like a lot of hot guys that go on there like I have a good lineup. That I met cues like great friends. Still that I'm still friends with two and. One day corey came in and I spotted him like Picker Mike Season and I like I pick it up for it and. He was super high he he looks like at the time. G. Easy. It's so see. A whole cheesy vibe and I was like at the time into that and. I saw him, and I went up to him. Because you know when people something and they have to wear it that night, no matter what like it could be eighty degrees outside, but they're gonNA like they're fucking trench coat from like all saints because they have to wear. It was corey so I went up to him because he was out. The borrows. We're GONNA pool tables those fucking with him and I went up Tim. Did you just buy this is that? Why are you wearing right now? Because fucking decrease in here like take it off, and then I just walked away, and then ironically he gets a pool table in my section, and I'm like fuck like. Talked to him and his group of Friends, I, said, something mean, and walked away, and then I come up and he's like Oh and he was like. It's the girl like you know, and then he says to me. Are you just another girl in La trying to be an actress and I was like Oh okay motherfucker, and I was like yeah. Actually I am the difference between me and your girlfriend is I'm booking jobs and she is in. And then after that. We kept going back and forth, and then, of course he asked for my number. Has Friends asked for my number and I'm like the girl that's like nope. I'll give you my number like you can. All like I'll take yours and olive. Maybe call you, but will see. That's how I work. And then I saved all the number. I, always save all the numbers in business cards I get no matter what I always say them in this little box and two weeks after he my Nana bought me this trench. Trench coat in just like the one he had, and I was Tang I'm like that guy was super high like I, should text him, and then I I didn't know what whose name like what his name was because I had like a box full a number so I texted all of them, and I was like Hey, are you still wearing that coat? Finally responded and how to block all the other dudes. And then after that it was history, and then we. Played a little hard to get. And then we started dating, and we dated for two years, and then that's where probably everyone's confused with single and Vander Pi, yeah, for two years, and then this motherfucker dumped me. Yup He'd left me. Ask in the grass while. Wolde wine I'll be completely real. I do with you. Know all the things that have like all my depression and all of my issues. It's really hard to date a girl that has. I was going through very high intense therapy at that time, so it was not. The best for me to be in a relationship I think he knew that, too, and like for him as well and he lived in San, Diego. And, so it was like long distance micro friends going through high therapy. She's like a fucking bitch to me all the time like she's crying and then like I worked at the club every weekend, so it was just like not mixing well and. You know we don't have a huge like like I. Fucking hate you know it was like hey. We love each other. This is probably the best for us, you know. Maybe it'll be something in the future, but like we need to. You need to work on yourself and you to go work on myself and wish mad perspect- you know Corey I respect that for someone who also knows what they deserve and he deserved better at that time. And then they always come back. Long long behold like a I mean. He hit me up, but it was just like I, also never single for like a long time I'd have fake boobs like I was like Dang. I'm like we am single. I got my job with my boyfriend like I'm going to have a fucking belive. And then I had a good time and then. It was after we filmed. It was towards the end of filming. We filmed something and I got so shrunk can't remember what it was. I don't think aired one of the dinners we had got so fucked up and I just started crying out the way home for because I wanted to call someone after Vanderbilt was after my date with Brenten everything. Yeah, it was just like I wanted to call someone with a good news. I wanted to like talk. Shit with someone that I knew wasn't gonNA, tell anyone or judge me, and that was corey, so I called him, and I was like. Hey, like I'm on this TV show I. Don't know what to do. Like was in my closet because I want to hear me hard. I was like I'm so confused and I'm like I. Don't know what's going on and in this shit and like I, just need a friend. And then he was my friend, and then now we're been back ever since brocker friends Noah Sane, it's so weird how things work out like yeah, who would've fucking known? And now we're here a year later like if you told me a year ago, this was happening I even outside podcast like two years ago. When I took care of you hide seriously like you know like I took care of you all night. And then coming your best friend, but it's like I had to take care of someone and I'm their friend on a podcast. It's weird I, love it. The Universe is cool and not way. That's why you need to go.

Sweet business grows here own sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer time. It is literally okay. I think that's literally in the opening sequence of Tokyo drift. When Lucas blacks character is the montage of him walking through the city. You see him like go down. Subway ads writing the escalator. Down the subway there's an MC hammer posted on beautiful beautiful wow shot up to MC hammer him to thank the fast and furious universe might not exist. That's right and for the film fans out there. He plays Roy Thunder the agent for the colored and finishing the game. The follow up film that we did after Tokyo drift. We literally shot the film after we did talk. So Justin could use a lot of the stage props saving money. Finishing the game of course is like a riff on after Bruce. Lee's death how many people scrambled till like capitalize into to carry on his legacy and so many different ways so okay that that kind of explains the origins of Han because your character and better luck tomorrow was also named Tonj in so. There's this really fun tongue in cheek bridge between select. Mara which he did with Justin and Jason Tobin another member of the fast and furious universe and took drift but as the French has got bigger and bigger and bigger. Han was like just a part of the family. Which is beautiful this huge multicultural. Multibillion dollar franchise you've got crazier and crazier action it. It it evolved into something so much more than you know. Just two hander. Very Brohi muscular to hinder that the first movie was and then six happened in which we said goodbye to seven and eight happened in further developments involving the introduction of Jason Stephens character as a character named Shaw who is then explained retroactively as person responsible for Hans stuff happened which kind of led in turn to something that nobody could have expected. Which is the Hashtag justice for Han Movement of fans who were kind of upset with how Hans Legacy was treated and I wonder if you can speak to what that was like for you that part of your relationship with this character or like I was saying earlier you know the love difficult relationship with the Han characters that the love part is that it did give such great opportunity and and perspective and open window into really what this business is the Hollywood business but then the difficult part is that GonNa look? We live in America. It comes down to data numbers right. I thought that after film like this maybe there would be more opportunities opening up Tokyo after Tokyo. Because you know obviously premier there's interviews. You see your picture online and stuff like that people are asking for Pictures. You Go from obscurity to all of a sudden the guy you know Asian Guy. They don't know your name but Jackie Chan but your guide and people start connecting with you. So you know. That's the difficult thing with fame. Is that all of a sudden. You know your normal life is not normal in this idea of fame or celebrity starts to feed expectations and then builds an ego right and ego is hard to define but it's deadly especially. I think as an artist and as a man that's growing into looking for his identity or purpose and then when the industry doesn't really support that it feels like. Oh this was all like illusion you know is like well. What's this and I thought we were actually doing something I thought at the end of it it was supposed to leads the more opportunity and I did not feel it on a personal level and so then you start blaming yourself and that's where I think a lot of artists are so insecure and I see the first one to admit that's probably why become actor but it starts the manifest and you go. Maybe I'm not good enough. Maybe I'm too Asian or I'm too tall too short Dr. Not all of it sedan. That starts to stunt your growth because then go into dish in. You're scared nervous. Because this is all you got. It's that one line and some episodic and you know you don't want to have ten jobs right and like. I was still working at a restaurant when I did Tokyo drift. So that's the reality now like you're in a fast and furious movie and all of a sudden you live in fast and furiously after the premier it's it's Cinderella. It turns back into a Pumpkin. And your back and all of a sudden. You really look like that guy from Tokyo. Not sure if right and that's tortured by your own success and so you go. Well how do I do this? Like how do I exist in this world without my ego coming in and going wait? I think I'm a slavery but it's actually a waiter. The opportunities were not there and all of your appetite gets bigger because I thought the world was accepted me but just because the audience or the fans except you does not mean to business exception. Because it's about money it's it's the old system can't take your personal. They're used to the way they do things. And you're not friends. It's a business your product crazy. Rich Asians wouldn't come on for like a dozen year year. Yeah you know I. I realized we'd better like tumor. That journey was like a lot of Asian American kids. College students and high school kids finally had something decalogue anecdote. That's me one of those characters they could identify with. Or ASPIRE. Or they just see their face nickel. That's me and after took your drift those like. Oh there's great possibility here to be a leading man to other opportunity and the problem was that I think the audience is like we just didn't have writers and other directors out there and you have to have studio executives and executives and you have to have other genres. You can't just have one film. You have to have crazy revisions then. You GotTa have searching. You've got to have them all. You have to young filmmakers like just gone coming in you know and redefining what? Asian American cinema is right so everybody needs to get together but when you're hungry you're starving and you're fighting for scraps to help each other. It's very hard like almost like like a Lobsterman. Talia crabs the fight over each other crabs in a barrel exactly. But it's so good that the you know that it's the industry not moving fast enough that it wasn't your work you know. That wasn't good enough of those kids growing up in Tennessee actually you know. Han People that I imagine my self are look in the mirror and try to like basically like when I was trying to date girls and stuff like that I was like. I'm going to be cool like this guy. You know like there needed to be this kind of template and there was something about Han where he's this as an American guy who was like so cool and dating the eventual wonder woman rubbing elbows vin diesel and Paul Walker. It just seemed like he was almost designed to beat back. These stereotypes that were applied to Asian American men. Was that intentional. Where like were you in just in like after Lee these stereotypes about Asian American masculinity and trying to dismantle them and mean. How could you not be aware where to Asian American men that are growing up in America? I mean we're born in the seventies so you know. Imagine the experiences that we had. So you don't have to think about it you know it's like the idea of diversity is not trying to make it diverse. Just got people in there. That understand would've feels to be a minority if you don't have any minority. I don't blame a guy from Tennessee. Who's never had one. Asian American friend not understanding me for those people to write an Asian American Story About Asian. Very difficult. You need a perspective. That is subjective right and just and just by default you know he always struggled being the the little Asian guy that wears glasses you know. And he his whole life. We're fighting these stereotypes me growing up in Georgia. Every day was the fight to have a voice. Because I wasn't even creon in Georgia. I was Chinese. Because they know the difference right. So our whole existence or whole idea of becoming storytellers or wanting to participate in Hollywood is to just allow us to have a voice to be three dimensional. This is actually the first time I'm in a room with two Asian Americans who grew up in the south. I'm curious to know where your experiences might like. What was it like you were in Georgia Tennessee? In Georgia Tennessee What was it like growing up in Georgia for you? I mean in my high school there was maybe like one Chinese kid. You know another Chinese kid who wasn't friends with then there were the Koreans who are all like pretty cool like they all had the earrings you know they dress. I could've you know but they all kind of hung out with each other and so they didn't hang out with us. You know And so I'm just kind of curious. What was it like growing up in Georgia for you? The beauty of I'm going to start with the good okay. The good is that when you are now Aligarh and you're the only one it teaches you. Survival instincts that. I thank when I meet people that grew up in the majority environments. They have a comfort level. That's why the swagger that Han had I had to go. And hang out with Koreatown Korean guys because every different swagger than I because I came from a place of completing security no voice no swagger though girls ever going to touch me only time any girl ever talk to me was to ask for Algebra geometry helping their homework and I suck worst at math related so and they also like a common conversation was like would they ever date an Asian guy right right and so often answer was no. You'd be having this conversation. You know in front of you and be like sitting right here you know but. I don't know if that ever happened to you but well. They never talked to him. It was like you a leopard. You don't get to participate in the things like Prom and those basic like your Learner's permit sixteen you go on a date. All that stuff that was it was like watching a movie when my friends got to do that or they get to a party. It's like me from afar looking at it wrong. No no I think I went to homecoming thing with a friend of mine. Does the most nerve wracking thing. Because Daichi of dating talking to the opposite sex was was impossible. I was not allowed to participate in it so I thought there was something wrong with me. Am I utterly personality? Also when they say Asian Americans are introverted. That has a lot to do with it. Because I'm the most outgoing funny. I love to make people laugh. I love to laugh. I'm curious about everybody's life and you know when we have a chance man. We have a radar that a lot of La dudes don't have is like when I walk into a room. I know when I'm not wanted. Yeah right you don't you could do with people could be smiling at me and I know it's just the way the world works you know it's like come on you know reporting. I've reported in Orange County where it's just like a lot of white people have to put on. You Know My folks Tennessee accent. And then I'll go to the San Gabriel valley in a reporter on Long asian-americans and it'll be a much better feeling. You know but at the same time I feel like growing up in the south means that like you know when I hear about racism and stuff. It doesn't hurt me as much because it's all kind of bounced off of me. Since I was real young since like first through seventh grade I got in fights every year because people would call me. Chink and I would fight them. I didn't win the fights but I started them and You know coming to California you know coming to UCLA. Sometimes it was just like a complete trip to look up in a room and realized that everyone is Asian American I'm just curious you. You did the same thing too right you. You move to a bar Sto when you were. How old were you was just going into my sophomore year. I think yeah and bar so I don't know too much about it but I just know that there's not too much to know about barstools. There was never Asian commute. I think there was a couple of other Asian families there. Chinese family But I actually love living in bar. Sto Barstool was my first introduction.

I don't think I could of navigated or been able to last. Hollywood is African American guy from Paris Texas. And he's my dad. He's the man that raised me. We come from a big huge family of African American civil rights participants. My Dad March with King. My Grandfather Papa was like the first African American police officer in Paris Texas One of my aunties is arguably like the first black nurse in Nevada. He grew up in Paris. Texas where you know when he would share stories and his cousins shares family reunions they. They'll with racism on a different level and growing up in Georgia. I remember there were certain things that would happen at school and I would come home and I would go down. We'VE GOT TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL. And you gotTa help me. You GotTa complain and he would say well. This is your introduction to the real world. He goes son. I'M NOT GONNA be able to share with you. What a black man is going to have to deal with America? But if you're asking to have the same type of credit if that's what you're going for you're never gonNA get it. You have to be the first one there last one to leave and still might get any accolades and you have to do it. For the Ri- reason yesterday for yourself and winning at the end of the day. Even if you get no credit you get no love. There's no popularity you know you did in the people that will now. So this is your first lesson. Can't get mad. I was going to school and complaining and yelling then then we become what they want. He silently just keep going and in Hollywood. I would always have to remind myself Yo. It's all about rejection. If I give up now they win right and I think that's where just in the lie we have. This kind of like sports mentality is that you beat us. That fuels us like okay. I'll show you. I think that's the only thing that kept us going because if it was for fame money we probably would quit. We want to quit long time ago. Right having that perspective of the African American experience that my dad would go through their kids that would throw rocks at him and his cousin walking industry and they threw rocks back and his grandfather. I it was a police officer in the town and Big Daddy came to pick up. The Kid said never do that again. Because this time you will get lynched right so if you know me getting in a fight with some raise this bullies you know. I'm not getting lynched. I'm just getting beat up. But at that time he we get lynched so he goes you live in a different time but use it as fuel right so I so identify with that. 'cause I received the same message from my Taiwanese immigrant parents you know but but in a totally different form you know and that whole mentality of like. I'll show you like I love that. I I think like when I first started writing about Asian American stuff and twenty twelve. You know. There wasn't a huge audience for it. People didn't really consider it serious journalism and I was like you know over the last couple of years. You know like every article you know every every everything you do is like an argument. You know you're trying to win that argument with your haters actually. Yeah what made you move to Los Angeles? 'cause I want to be an actor there? I wanted to be an actor so at the time the only person I saw on screen that I said that I would love to have that type of career or actor named Jason Scott Lee and he was in the move called map of the human heart and I was working as a furniture mover and San Francisco during like the summer once and one of my coworkers said. Hey there's this Asian American actor playing at the Kabuki and San Francisco he goes. Let's go and watch it. You WanNa be an actor. I mean we should go and I was like ads. He's GonNa do Kung Fu and I don't WanNa do that and we're watching it. It was really wonderful beautiful art house film and he has a romantic interest. That is I think she was a French actress right and I was like it's possible. I went back to and Hon Jason Scott Lee down. I hunted him down going. I need to know how he got here. Who did he study with was his process? Because like who were my mentors we all need our Jordan. We all need our Kobi's and if we don't see our face up there right like what. What's what's the path right. Like Jackie Chan Jet Li. They're amazing at what they do right there icons but I don't share any of their experience. Their natives there stars in their own country. So who's my big brother? So I said I'M GONNA make Jason Scali my big brother so I was doing extra job. I found in the back of a Korean newspaper. It was Thank COM SECURITY FOR. Korea was like a home security system and Colombo faulk. He was the star so because he was the star. I was like I'll be an extra right. I just wanted to be around an actor and so I was like backgrounds like in this this commercially for Korea and the line producer was a korean-american got a group. Santa Monica the surfer dude. He was like a raw. You WanNa be an actor. As a again he goes. Hey this actor named Jason Scott Lee. I found his teacher. I'm GonNa go meet them tomorrow. And so I said you gotTa take me with you so we went and met. This guy named Sarah Mayo. Who also was the teacher for Dustin the win another Asian America from Jump Street Right Andrews has got right so I'm going to this. Is The guy this guy that is method acting all like actors studio based raise like he has taught like the other two? Asian American male actors that I look up to. This is my guy right so from that day on. I've been studying with sow. He's like he's my grew. You know what was the secret to why he. He worked with so many Asian American actors. I have no idea where he can. We rewind back in Georgia even before Bar Sto. When did you know you want it to act? Was Your family into would you watch movies and TV together. The movie part of it. The the romance films came from my stepfather we. We're so different. And he is so old. Squeeze the military guys so you know. We woke up at the crack of dawn. We didn't connect and he loves football and I love swimming and weird like wrestling and it's you know it needs to be baseball or football right the thing that we could connect with was going to the movies and he would take us to drive throughs and I have a great story. This is how this how crazy our family was. Is that some my dad being a true American love the whole process of going to a theater. Right you go. You'll get the popcorn. You get the coke and Pepsi. You get milk duds joy the whole process. My mother being Korean is the cheapest human being in the whole world. Milt got so we have street going to the movies together and so my little sister mom wanted to tag along. So we're like there's a double header the Mad Max doubleheader at the local drive in and so my mother goes they charged for the adults. Not per car and the kids are free she goes. I'M GONNA hide into trump. There's this this is Korean. Fake mink blanket like tiger patterns on. She put that in the trunk and she put chocolate milk in a trash bag. Because that's like in case somebody WANNA chocolate milk because we did have containers And Down Korean. Mink blanket the story about this. She brushed Shasta Right. Warm bottle of Shasta like Diet CESCO Coca Cola products. Oh Man Yeah and she made popcorn home and she. We're not buying anything and my dad was so pissed off. Because he had to pull over the side of the road she gets into trunk and we go into the drive in and he goes. Come on kids and so we go in. By all the popcorn he left my mom in the trunk for fifteen minutes. Well just as we wrap up you have fascinating coming up. But you have so many other things going on as well and we'd love to hear about the new projects you're working on things you're launching in sort of where you're at now in terms of of embracing the voice and the platform that you have a. I have some projects a couple other film and TV projects coming out. I also have a website. It was my first attempt at a podcast with you. It's called songs garage. It's an opportunity for me to give back within the car community. I've met some amazing amazing people and songs. Garage is a place where we hopefully we have a connection through a love affair with a car but at the end of it. Hopefully we help each other to be better. People in life and my end goal in life is to leave this earth just as a good person that said that's my contribution. I feel like I'm so blessed with the opportunity that I have now that I I want to pay for it. So I created this sunk scratch to allow people to come and share their stories to real conversations. It's not this a look at me and let me talk about glamorous my life is is really put a spotlight on the the heroes in life that will never get a stage right and you know. I'm not interested in the rich guy in the famous guy during the Lambo. I want. Somebody who you know is a good father a good brother just a good friend just a good person and those simple heroes are the people that inspired me. And that's what I want to share so yeah and we don't have much time left and so I really want to get this. We're I want to paint the picture a little bit. Like we're sitting in the studio with the on memorial here wreath by some white flowers that Jan has created. I've left an offering of a kid cats and sun cakes at the but I need to go into this. I got to I know. She keeps refusing and she. She's so humble but I have to say John that if it wasn't for you rights and you doing these things and campaigning. For the justice for I don't think you would ever cut to the studios head. They wouldn't have been aware of it. I don't think they would have felt like. Does it merit something to invest in two? And I think you've really put the wind behind sale for this movement so if anybody deserves credit it's you so. I know you shaking your head but this proves it because you didn't make does yesterday. This is years old. Well that's very sweet. I'm just glad that you're back. I'm glad that you have heard you know over the years. Many fans like so many fans on social media in real life telling you that it means something to you what happens to this characters legacy because you made it important to them and I think it is meaningful that universal listened to those fans and listened to the reaction to these creative decisions that are made in a huge huge huge blockbuster machine this one character and what happened to this one character meant so much to so many people. We everyone's talking about what we have in the studio with us is my homemade. Hunn memorial that I made for. What if my fast and furious barbecues and furious barbecues matter that co hosted by filmmaker friend of Mine Ben David Griffin see? This memorial was made By hand by myself and my friend a net. There's so many people in my life who loved these movies and Love Han in when it came to our third annual fast and furious barbecue. The second one was called too fast barbecue what other name could possibly have. And the third annual one was called fast and furious barbecue. Drift man was. Also there was a stub head. It was the solo memorial barbecue because it mattered to us. What this franchise was saying about this character that we loved. I am so sure that it sounded very crazy to you. I think people really taking it. This series I mean. It wasn't crazy because the reason I at first it was uncomfortable was because all of a sudden puts hope in your head right you gotta remember. The state of mind is like nothing about the fans and stuff it's like I need to survive right so yeah workwise. Because you're you know you're out there you're hustling you're dishing. There's no work right so when you see something like this. It's just a reminder of of the irony of life right it's like Oh this character so popular meant so much to you. You actually doing this whole thing. But who's GonNA listen you know? I'm like God thank you so much. But they'll probably fall on their fears and that's where you never know life and then all of a sudden you wake up and you get a phone calls like a the fans want you back in like what is that what somebody said I'll thoughts. Yeah I mean when I got the call from Justin. And he's like a they want on back. This justice for hunting is happening. It was only him. That could actually make your work. It's that time in our program where we asked for guests to share a bed Asian confession which is anytime that's made you feel like you've been a bad so some what is one of yours Asian American I felt bad that when Asian crazy came out I was hesitant you know and now I feel I thank you crazy rotations. Thank you feel like is like Justin Chon again for doing the work? You do to give me hope again. It's a confession and also a big. Thank you for these guys. That makes a lot of sense to me. Because you know even though we have this new generation and not just new filmmakers but we have this wave of filmmakers that we can point to who are bringing. Asian American stories and voices to Hollywood like Justin. Sean who made the film Gook Purple Purple More recently. Jon M Chu. Who's doing huge things? Not even within the crazy you know but he did step up to the movie that I love I so like he and he's doing in the heights next. There's a lot of people that we can point to now that we're not prominently visible back when you're in this in this time post. Tokyo drift when you're seeing like so many doors close to you And that's something that's really wild to me 'cause like I get. Why CRAZY RICH? Asians might have triggered something into any which is to say. Do I dare hope that this changes things go right this is built-up cynicism of watching Asian Americans in Hollywood for a kid right. But you know this thing to you makes me aware. I'm thinking like we do have to give credit to infrastructure that was set up before crazy rotations because for I think directors like John Chew and just in Land Justin Chon to exist. We needed also supporting our community. And that's where film festivals like the former VP. Visual Communications Film Festival San Diego. The the not I think they changed their name and San Francisco's probably the San Francisco International Film Festival now. All those film festivals there was one in Philadelphia. The New York Asian American Film Festival all over the country. You know even though maybe only a few hundred people show up you know it started compounding right and without those film festivals the short films and the badge films that we made had no chance of ever being seen. And that's where you have to fall on your face. We have to allow US. Allow our community to make mistakes. And that's where you grow right and these film festivals gave. I know I'll speak for myself a tremendous salt because I would go to these things and I would see people with the similar gene similar faces right and it gave me a sense of community so we have to give credit to those people and all the people that founded those film festivals and the La Asian Pacific Film Festival. That are still to this day. Put on by people who were allowed to the borders back then supporters from the movement ever since then like David Davis Rockdale. Who Literally told me he was like at Sundance for better luck tomorrow. A huge part of a team that would literally go to the one grocery store in town priority. Looking for any blink.

If it wasn't for you while first of all I'd just be talking to myself. And secondly there'd be no reason for me to do this and thirdly I wouldn't be able to do it because without contributions for people on patron the folks shopping through our Amazon Lincoln that kind of stuff we wouldn't be able to financially so I'm very grateful for the fact that you listened to the podcast and that shoe support gun guy. Tv The way you do. Thank you very much. Please don't stop doing that. In fact I probably should let you know that gun guy. Tv is almost entirely funded by practical defense systems In addition to things like Patriot and that kind of stuff and practical defense systems is a company my wife and I own which trained security officers throughout the State of California for their licensing and continuing education the required by the state.

Only in this first half of the podcast which you can listen to free just about anywhere. We're going to have an interview that I did with a gentleman from optics planet at shot. Show and that gentleman is a fellow by the name of Cowl Liebowitz now Kelly. Bewitch is quite the personality indeed is one of my son's favorite people we always enjoy running into cal at show and cal is a funny guy. He had the opportunity to chat with us for a while. So I'm sure you'll enjoy that particular interview. I probably should tell you that optics planet is one of my favorite stores one because they send us things to review but also because they just have great prices and great stuff and great customer service. I do urge you to shop optics. Planet they don't pay me to tell you that I'm just sharing that with you because it's my personal opinion however if you do choose to shop at optics planet if you use the Code Gun Guy. Five that's G. U. N. G. U. Y. And then the letter or the number five gun guy five. It will save you some money on all of your purchases. It doesn't make any money for us and that's fine but it does save you some money on all of your purchases at optics planet so I urge you to check it out and use that Code Gun Guy. Five now in the second part of the podcast which will be available on Patriots. Only I'm GonNa talk a little bit about what I'm seeing happening with our rights and the Kovic Nineteen Corona Virus Chinese virus Shutdown of businesses and basically shutdown of the country. I'm concerned as many are at this point that our rights are being trampled and the goalposts are being moved. I'll talk about that more in the second half of the podcast which is available on patriotic. But for now let's get into the interview with cal Liebowitz from optics planet. We've got cal from optics. Cal Liebowitz has been Has become a friend of mine. I don't know why you're just making up stories. I he actually likes me your sense stuff but he does. And I'm gratefully doesn't hopefully nick. You'll never telling me should because now I gotTa Tell Ya. Okay so solicit conversation that we saw when we come out here to Shochu or whatever. One of the first question she asked me is is. Why would you even ask about me well? It's all about the pizza. Oh you didn't know back. Then though you got to redeem himself from From all yet you didn't like breakfast last year. I know that's all my fault. Cal's defense I am a big fan of Hash House ago however and we love you but you're tation browse strip. There's another one. The original one which is on Sahara over on the west side from the West. I oh well okay so I did pick that crummy restaurant. It was to save save destroying your Easter on your life. Preserver take head turns out in Jackson. Mississippi is really good. And you guys just went on. An off-day was all that must have been or the fact that we're not Jackson. Mississippi League debut. What I find fascinating is that you redeem yourself by going to a pizza restaurant that I took you to. That's true if not for you I would never have known that place existed. I didn't even know this place was here so well. That's considered talking to your father more often. Oh now I know how this works so cal. What's going first of all I? You know I I lift up optics planet a lot in case you watch gun guy TV. Or I've seen an episode or two. Yeah no I'm not talking about you. Speaking to the individual who may be listening to them. Sallow individual Yeah sort of generic generic individual there. Now you're not generic cow. When I I was telling frank from Liberty I found somebody that cow. When the channel had like twelve hundred subscribers or was under fifteen hundred cal called me and he said have would like to send you some products and my response was. Are you sure you called right channel because mine is really small? Why would you do that? And he said he wanted to do it because he felt a channel. It's going to be successful. And he wanted to get in there before I wouldn't talk to him later on which you know I would happily talk to you later on. This would have done any bill me now but I was happy with my Shaw. No shall they calendar optics huge supporter of Gun. Guy TV sets the beginning is my point and I'm very very grateful for what you do and I want you to know that thank you. I'm very happy to. It's way too much youtube and there was something with the way you handled yourself on screen the way you presented. Whatever it was that was the object of the day that told me that. You're not a flash in the PAN that you're not a A person of how bad substance thank you questionable repute. I think is oh. That's actually a good repute. I May I use that later. Oh please okay as you recall. Sometimes I have a hard time phrasing. These things in a family friendly way which is why last year went out. She Mannequins family friendly channels so we have to do it that way to what is what's new with optics planet what's going on with optics planet. That's new and cool or just cool new or cool. Oh boy why? Don't you put me on the spot with these hard hitting questions that I didn't prep for it and you're listening to the podcast and you can't tell us what your Boston new and cool APP? Their APP is cool. You like that. I've got the APP on all the time. Actually I do tend to use the APP when people say. Have you seen this? It's quicker than trying to bring up a browser screen on the phone. What I find I have to admit is I didn't know you had an oh. Yeah it's it's hard to find you have to sell optics planet and then it'll come. Download the APP. Yeah it's really really hard. Well you have to do optics poll. Oh yeah so. This is really difficult. Even even for an old guy should've discovered this long time ago. Is your point any twelve year old can do it and five percent of the sixty. I no longer have. I no longer have a twelve year old and I must be. I must be in the ninety five percent. And here's the downside. Is the APP is incompatible with rotary phones? Oh putting on my phone I am. You've had it on your phone this whole the last seconds Okay thank you so very much by the way I love your new AP apparently I just. I'm glad you get so far. Haven't had an opportunity to anything with that yet. But I'm going to and you can still use your coupon code with it so have I. Oh okay well what am I ordering next? That's the question. I don't know why I recommend something very expensive. There's some really good thermals tech their only around forty three thousand. I know for yourself. That's a drop in the bucket. You have more than that in lunch today. I got those. Who Do you think? You're talking to Arnold Schwarzenegger or what I for for those listening. You don't realize that. He pulled up in an extended stretched limousine with four wheel drive in a Jacuzzi in the back span wheel. If you believe that I also have a bridge to sell you. It was it was a nineteen sixty three pink. Volkswagen microbus with an oil leak. And that's how I got carrying seventeen and a half people. They were all right. You should see me getting out of the elevator earlier today. That was about how cramped. It wasn't no one could believe that they couldn't get in yet because there's still people exiting with without the pizza boxes that was without that was actually back. Dotes L. Show mcallen. I are talking the other day about doing this. Little podcast thing with him because he's just kind of a crack up to do podcast with and he's you know. Originally he wanted to buy us all lunch and we said sure and then of course the podcast scheduled goofy here in the press room and we just. We couldn't get way to do it because we've got people coming in one right after another nice. Well why don't we do a podcast interview? And he said okay. I'll bring pizza. Please shows up so many boxes of pizza. I think we've fed a third of the The the press room. There's people start gathering around. Let's see we had Let's see we had frank and his buddy from the Liberty I foundation. We Fed them. We Oh we had chocolate shell from. Crp A special eaten Brenner sugar right now. I think he's trying to lose that. I've got his Brent Scher just enjoyed a visual of the peace and I looked at any SAM. Look I think he really did though I think he wanted it so bad it was killing him. He's looking at going. I would love to have you know. We're picking on Chambi sitting right over there but he's having a conference. He's out of earshot. It's Okay Yeah. He does have microphone. He's been shooting for years like measles deficit stumps it right by problem. I'll tell you guys. Headset turned up just a little bit minds cranked all the way to the end got to start shooting rook rifles. Then you're listening to the good night. Tv podcast. Please pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Oh Okay what's Rook rifle? I've no idea really know. This is something I admit publicly. Admit right here. I admit my ignorance. I do not know what Dr I've gotten into the several years ago and so I kind of bring it up with everyone okay. So before Harem peercy maxim developed the silencer There was still a desire for be able to dispatch garden. Pests Fox Coyote. Whatever without disturbing your neighbors in the UK the concept they came up with for this was what they call the rifle so picture. A large single shot rifle. Maybe with twenty six twenty eight inch fairly even but the cartridge that fires would be energy wise equivalent to like a nine millimeter. Luger specifically because everyone knows there's a billion different nine millimeter cartridge. Right sure The ideas that in the first part of the barrel. You're accelerating we're all used to but we're as it would already have gotten maximum speed out of a piss link barrel. It's still has all this friction to do so. Now it's actually decelerating the projectile in the meantime all the gases have a place to expand behind it so there goes your report. It's gone you still have noise. Obviously it's not like Hollywood quiet. Unfortunately nothing really is no but the suppressor it can be in the hearing safe range without actually having suppressor silencer. Whatever our word of the day is she said. They used that for dispatching their neighbor with other neighbor noticing. More for Fox's Love. It wasn't about the neighbor that would play music. Too Loud at three in yourself was thinking. Well what if you attach silencer a suppressor on that too? And then you'd have a striker. Falling would be the loudest thing the bullet which stop about three quarters of the day there to give you an idea I've done was. I picked up years ago a Martini. Cadet which is a single shot based off liquor Martini Henry Action but scaled-down mine was converted in the nineteen sixties to three fifty seven magnum. But if I shoot thirty eight special WAD cutter the old target loads through it. It's just around one hundred forty a little outside of hearing safe but I can come up with hand. Looks to slow down a little bit of the other option to is that. I've been playing around with Marlin ninety four lever action and forty four. Mac and I single feed forty-four Russian with a very very low powder charge that I put in there basically just enough to clear the barrel and that I had metered professionally at one hundred forty DB at the year. So how much shooting do you do in your basement? That's down in the basement and he's knocking beer cans over innovation and on a Saturday night. Only actually been with a BB rifle. That was spring. Our nine co two. He's not gonNa tell the truth. He's afraid the COPS will show up. I go to places where such activity is quite legal to do so good for you. That was on the record. Write what they write the Illinois State Police here in Illinois. Aren't you no no? I'm in California. Yeah Listen Jersey New Jersey California's Newtown. We just incorporated. Yeah Church south of California Paris right. It's awful it's bits bits it's it's just right next to a bar. Sto well our town is. You must doors open. I'm also just south of San Diego. I okay I know that area. Yeah Extreme Bar sto well. There's not too far from the Pacific that that's just a little bit west of me and make somebody mad about you know that. I really don't know anything about that. I can't really and we do why we pick on it on route. Sixty six goes Oh my goodness if you'd be amazed I don't know maybe I think it's in the song maybe it so we we've deep into the jokes about Barr show that we have joked many times at every every fugitive from the law that has is in the world goes to borrow because they figure that nobody would actually go out into that horrible part of the country. They'll look for them. There's only problem with that and you know there's a lot of California California viewers and I'm going to get hate mail like you would not believe because we're bagging on Barr show. You know what's right next door to bar sto show Ford or one for doing betwixt the two? Oh is there something between the those? Yeah Daggett thought you were GONNA say Irt. Well maybe has a terrible impediment tag it. Dag Airport is home to the California Highway Patrol. Oh there's an actual airport out so this was filmed What you're telling me is that you are on the outs with your boss. You worked for the CHP. The California Hallway patrol can't handle police work and all these other now I'm GonNa get hate mail from. Chp officers all over the place. Now I have a lot of respect for you guys by the way and I do drive a any other vehicle but the one I drive my understanding is that it's VW. Microbus seventeen and a half people in nineteen sixty three adult. Forget the oil leak very much. What you're telling me is if you're on the couch with your boss. The California Highway Patrol you end up at Daggett well like the Gulag wishing to patrolling is fifteen and all the people that are going to Vegas for whatever reason they drive to Vegas. There's they have a aviation division. They're a very large aviation division to fly the people to Vegas and California complimentary airfare from to Vegas Nevada. Yes yes with the silver with silver bracelets on it as well so yes absolutely doesn't free jewelry. Hotels Stay Long Time. Three meals a day period clothing. Jim So you could go work out to. This actually sounds amazing. Where do I sign up to do that? By breaking the Law California. Apparently so don't do it yet to step foot into California. Here's my here's my question is sheriff's department pilot. Have you flown in to? Daggett gets off and did you take back off or Pete is a is a pilot for the among other things for the Orange County sheriff's department periodically and you have flown into Daggett not sheriffs business but I've been in a few teams as an unwilling pasture pilot.

Where'd you hear about that restaurant There was this guy. No show Joe. Somebody clue looking was a good guy. He's got a great radio Voice. I remember his name. But you'll he told me about this place Even showed me how to find the first two times I went there because goodness knows I got all turned around and was literally walking the wrong direction. That's funny because you were. There's nothing like walking halfway to the restaurant accidentally taking wrong. Turn walking back where you came from without realizing alert pain and realize that you walked all the way back. It's like I was describing you guys yesterday when I'm out on the floor over in the show it's I could wanna go to something that's in a straight line and somehow do this snail. Shell thing where I just go. Round and round in eighteen right turns later find the place. Funny let's go home. Always turning to the right point. That turned the left point. The soles of your shoes where in such a way I'd be happy to take them off and show those that would like to see the funny. How the show works. Is that at some point? You become like one of the salmon who ends up getting rush by the wave and your and you you wanted to go outside but instead you went deeper and deeper into the show where you never return no to. Today I was just trying to go through and get to a few things I wanted to check out and I ended up wandering past the Guiseley booth which depending on time of day is no problem. It's super easy. Unfortunately this time of day they were doing one of their giveaways so I wanted to go pass them and make a left and I got within five feet of where I wanted to turn and I could proceed no further yet and I ended up having to turn around and go back another several hundred feet and doing the long loop out. Okay so I don't know two three years ago. Something like that. I bump into Jerry Mitch. Like at the show physically no not physically but I mean we just talk to each other and he says to me. Do you know where the accident and I said Jerry honestly. I don't know where they actually now. You understand that. I don't know jury personally. He doesn't know me probably wouldn't even remember the energy the exchange. I don't know but I found it hilarious because I've been shot shows been in the same place for years. If you've come to show you'll find that. The A lot of the major boozer in the same position all the time. So you think if you've been here for ten or twelve years in a row you'd know where the exit is or you know where the bedroom is or whatever so jerry walks up and we're in the main hall and he goes what's up. I don't know where the exodus and I said well I. I don't where the exit is. We're lost together and so we're both looking for the exit. So essentially divide cocker. He goes one way I go the other. Fortunately I've found an accident as long as I know Jerry could still be wandering around then and now and just attended the show when it they've actually seen Jerry that might be the case. I know I've actually I'VE BEEN AS CLOSE TO JERRY. I am with you and I don't think I've ever said two words to him not the because I just don't know what to say. Exactly he's had said something to me though and that was three years ago as I was trying to go one way down the hall and the show and he's going the other way and no shoulders he said. Excuse me and kept going. I have no complaints the by to tell you exactly what to say to it. I don't know where is the exit and you could also say Hillary where whereas the exit. That's eight words can paraphrase that before actually very friendly. He's not terribly talkative fairly. Yeah I saw him over at Media at the range and even there I saw some people doing a few things that would make me cringe. One the reasons I refused to attend. Because I'll tell you one of the things I learned here in Shochu. What did we learn at the first year? I mean you hear expect I the first year we were here? Nick and I came out of the first day saying I. We have been muzzled more today at a place where professionals are supposed to be that we've ever been mostly before discouraging is when Muslim you and you're clicking and pull the trigger eight. I'm like what did I do? I don't even know you offend me. Do read the policy about. The firing pins have to be removed. None of them can be functional. Now I know why it would be a bloodbath in the place. The only thing I'd ever say to Jerry if I really do is hello. Everybody wants to know anybody ever trade break into your house. So how did it go for them to their breaking? Joel's house each lights via go. Well Yeah my wife will shoot. I don't have to go that we're one of my kids will never know. I just sit back and go. Okay go ahead so you would advise the listening audience not to come uninvited. A good idea I did have It kind of a funny story right. I did have a couple show up at my house on. This happened not too long ago. The just showed up the house unannounced and I answer the door and it's guy well fortunately I knew him. I used to work with him. When we both worked at Casco and with San Diego radio stay together and he had discovered where I lived at grabbed. His wife came over well. I don't mind because I knew the guy but it disturbed the tournament because I thought you know somebody could just show up at my house. Which is just Uber. Weird so because I you know I get it but I I would no more. I enjoy watching Jerry. Shoot Show on or or Rob Briley or whatever. And there's a lot of podcasts.

You'll Hauser who heals going to salt this time. Oh, I got. We got a fun game playing for him. We'll do a little Huels unprepared. God always unprepared. He really is Houston his element. That's right. Right. Wheelhouse. Sweet spot. I. So I was talking to Dr drew yesterday about something. You know, there's the, oh, I should have the show brought to you by hymns dot com slash Corolla and bet decide com inter mad atom and insta- cart com. Interim Castrol edge. So everyone now is getting caught up in the metoo stuff. And then we're also taking a deep dive and. You know, we're going back, and we're modifying some civil war statues. And we're pulling down a few paintings and history. We're correcting history. We're basically getting out our airbrush and correcting history like Photoshop woman gets a little bit older. She gets a couple of crows feet. You take out that airbrush new correct problem? Liz Taylor will tell you all about it. So. We are listening to a dire straits song with sting singing the background. And that little faggot is a millionaire is now hold out. How long radio friendly, right? So everyone is kind of aware. All right. That's how we're rolling now. And it's some of it's good. Some of it is, and I don't I don't have a sort of universal. This'll never work. I don't really care if you modify dire straits song, they don't feel like that's impacting the art or me or my kids or anything like that other things are a little more or Weli, and like getting yearbooks from high school and taking a deep dive into those that that's a slippery slope for anyone who's got a yearbook and who maybe looking for a job and looking for a job in their fifties. So that's a little scarier and again, I'm not the slippery slope guy. But if we're getting in high school yearbook, we are getting into a scary world. Now, all that being said by far the worst of all of them way more than even deacon Jones in his head slap. You're the only one that kid. Thank god. He's a scape. So far the only brought the. Wrath upon them. It's kind of a weird thing where they're just things we do care about things we don't care about. And it's not necessarily. It's not an order of importance deacon Jones, saying smacking or man or woman upside the head, especially when there's no women in the league is much about it. On the about saying, I do assault women, and I'm an NFL interior linemen. But it's still just played at nauseam on on the NFL network until I started yelling about this one. We had take a little deeper dive recently unearthed recently unearthed from nineteen seventy seven. I was well some of this stuff. There's there's two ways. I mean there is the, hey, Jimmy Kimmel the demand show he dressed up as Carl Malone recently on earth. That's your south TV, Shan. There's Tucker Carlson on bubble love sponge, and that's just out there too. But then their stuff that does go away, and you have to kind of dig around for it a little bit. I was trying to explain to the kids who buck Henry was and unfortunate running friendly child molester. Yes. And they're like who's buck Henry, and I said. I think he's still alive. He is eight years young. And I said buck Henry is a humorist. And I said humorous because he writes, he does some performing it's not really performer comedic comedian humorist is a good title to give. Buck Henry, and it was back when guys. Probably still some of it. But not not as much it's back when guys. When race car drivers back in the day. Like, Dan gurney, Dan, gurney would drive in he drive Indy. Cars drive a Formula one car. He drives stockcar look back when you just drive everything you were driver all the drivers did it. Now, you drive stockcar. You don't dry Formula one and vice versa and back then on SNL you wrote. But you also did some performing, but you did some more more mostly writing, but you've come out and perform some bit l Franken. Greg simple Smalley, but he was a writer, but he was know started more. Well, when you think about Al Franken's antics, then you think about uncle ROY. Buck Henry doesn't all well. Well, not only that. But I get the part where there's some humor and maybe some Polack humor or some Jew humor or ethnic humor or something. Like that where it's like, oh, we used to think it was funny to make fun of fat woman or something. But now, it's not so funny anymore body, shaming whatever I don't know when pedophilia was ever in vogue. Maybe the Roman literally. Yeah. The whole bit is the guys of forty something year old who has a hanker in for nine year olds this recurring bed. But there's no more than once seen this Gilda Radner was the little girl, and I think Lorraine new and who both did great little girls. Anyone who knows them? They're far stuff. They looked impatient. Slender away all their Hera pony tails, and they were little girls. So I was kinda explained to these guys. Buck Henry SNL and uncle at funny. I would just call them uncle buck with us a movie, but uncle ROY character. And they were like. Ooh. Brought up the super Bassim attic. Seventy-six example, it doesn't make to highlight reels on the nursery show show. We couldn't find any any footage of it. It was scrubbed. It was. I think Gary would say was partially scrubbed, or at least you couldn't just go. Here's what I'm saying. You could probably find Sam samurai delicatessen owner, but I know killer bees. But I don't know the blues brothers. Birches MC, right? I don't know if you could find this is easily. I was able to find it. It was it was much. It was more difficult to find than most things would be SNL is very good about keeping all their digital archives up on their website and available and this the seas episodes containing these skits were not available on given a little bit more time after the shows at ended. And I kept searching I discovered that you could rent the season on you too. So this is recently sort of unearthed did you have to go to the duck web. Do you have to pay for this bitcoin did go to the dark web came back to the light web? Gotcha. So it took some searching around and thanks to the team of Gary and the. And me telling Gary, we've found this this ROY bed. I haven't seen it, but you guys should be blown away. Because again, they used to do fat guy humor and they used to do Polack humor. Then we've it was funny at the time, you know, and they do these voices like junior Wenceslas it's on. It's a little it's a little bit of stereotype, or whatever I don't know when this was ever funny. I don't know about about SA L nerd from back in the day. And I came of age in the early nineties. I remember seeing these in either reruns or home video or something. So these these didn't come out of until at least the ninety s. Yeah. And the nineteen seventy six was kind of a lot of humor back in the day of like Chester the molester lot of trenchcoat guys. Like a lot of jokes girl on the street waiting for a cab guy at the trench coat slash your. It was all kind of. Oh, it was all in good fun. But this ain't flashing an adult on the streets of Manhattan. This guy's babysitting. All right. We the parents have left and uncle ROY is going to babysit Lorraine Newman and Gilda Radner who are probably playing nine year olds. Here we go. Let us play invisible. Legg dr. I'll maybe remember when I go ROY bled pirate. And he was the island to search for the buried treasure. These. By the way, I said nine year olds they're playing six half the seven. Oh. Yeah. Okay, now who wants to play Simon says in the bedroom? With fuller of the polls. There. Simon says sure knows Simon says touch your toes Simon says touched the him of your nineties. Oh my God. Simon says grab onto that him. And raise your arms. Says. Camera in pitchers. This is Dane, right? Oh my God. This is he's selling this is like a PSA he's committed. This is crazy that this is on like somebody wrote this, right? I don't know anyone raised their hand. Like, hey, I did a man show bit, right? Banged my mom, my biological mom. And guess who said I'm out Jimmy. Sensibilities for Jimmy's like looking at the script sitting there and black vase eating a sandwich. Looking at the script on MU. Now now now, I'm too busy over Jim Frey. Yeah. Not Joan now. I wouldn't know that's my mom. And then I went I'll bang, my mom. Number real, mom. The point is is even I find this offensive. Saying they're they're they're counts are pulled up over their heads. And he's taken picture Lubers. Gina bloomers K. Laughing. Okay. Simon says put your nineties slowly down. Also, I like to do the have some fun every once in a while, which is the real version of this dude funny. Well, saying like like in all the fast and furious movies. The real version VIN diesel the guy just punches everyone in the face all day, and then just slides his car around the streets of Hollywood like you don't actually want to hang out the real version of that guy. Sociopath like, by the way, forget about VIN diesel, Adam Sandler movies. He just punches everybody in the face over. No good breezes like watch, Mr. deeds. All he does beat the cry physically salts everyone all day. But anyway, so the real version of ROY. Oh, yes. He's going to their hamper to get used hand. Oh. I am the lion tamer. I sure hope these for roses jungle cats don't turn on me. Right. This second jump on top of me. All right. Well, anyway, you get the bit. That's crazy. Right. This is extremely crazy to justify. It hasn't made the rounds in several years. Yeah. It's a it's a weird comedic premise to jump off from which is this guy is sexually aroused by seven year old SNL to the good job of celebrating themselves. Every five years, they have some big clip show too long. Somehow these don't make the clip show this bit that ran for several interrelations over several years. Yeah. I had to just sometimes I think the young kids here. The guys who work here mines will be blown by this stuff. And I don't think they fully understand how insane some of this is and it is insane. All right now onto the hard hitting subject of volleyball shoes. Get whiplash anger that there's a shoe for everything. Also, I seem to remember indoor volleyball shoes when I was younger not that I owned any. But I'd see like the girls, they look like wrestling, high top, whatever it sort of reminded me, a wrestling shoe sort of looks like a low top basketball shoe, but it's not a low top shoe which sorry, but the boxing, okay? So a wrestling shoe kind of looks like a boxing shoes. A matter of fact, when I used to box a lot of guys just wore wrestling easier to find you could go to the big five, and and get them the volleyball shoe of your used to kind of look like a wrestling. She had a higher top anyway Natalia role PO possibly fractured. Her ankle. She's okay. 'cause she likes tension, but metered urgent care, and blah, blah, blah, the other day because she's playing volleyball in her volleyball shoe, which is a low top volleyball shoe, which really. A running shoes votes up. Yes. Volleyball shoe and she's roller ankles a couple of times, and I'm I just under right everything. But I thought the whole plan with jumping up and down in front of the net. Was you could easily roll your ankle? And thus you should have a shoe that has a high time doing the same motions on the same court as basketball players where the same type of shoe, and I will say this. I think basketball shoes have gone a percentage of them have gone from high top too low top, but those guys tape their ankles. So I think that's heavy. It's not going forward in general, right? I someone Christie two-way on this eight crap on your point. But all the basketball shoes in the NBA high tops. Got more anymore. No, they're not kkob. Even Kobe used to wear low tops. And his was like look if I'm gonna sprained my ankle. It'll happen whether I'm wearing a high or low I just see him they wear. They switched them. A lot of guys switched and nobody says to the kids like you gotta tape up before we I I don't know about anything. All I knows I paid probably eighty nine dollars for something. You could do and flip flops barefoot at the peach for special volleyball indoor volleyball shoes having no effect, but they're low cut volleyball shoes. And now, my daughter keeps rolling rankle, and I wanna see max paddock can you get high tops or did they used to? I think it's like the NBA, and maybe they've taken a page from the NBA that it used to be all high tops at some point. And at some point a lot of guys switched, and I don't know why most everything Christie big personality about this 'cause she was actually very complex high school volleyball player play many years at high level. So she would know, you know, through the landscape of shoes. Late nineties. All right. Well, we'll we can reach out to her. You cannot. No, I don't know. Fine pictures from like the eighties when girls playing go whole box. Pictures young girls playing high school volleyball teams are something nineteen eighty five or whatever. And we'll see what happens anyway. So she rolled her ankle. And okay. Shaken a splint the thing with the thing. And it's something whatever the pain is is made up for by the attention. She gets I think she she enjoys it out of school get crutches owed. She got crutch. A ton of noise, and I drove her into school this morning, Cindy rights, spike and handicapped placard, all right? All right. I have found him vintage volleyball. She's really really low top. Wow. Like beach shoes. Well, maybe we'll see if there is a high top. Yeah. The one she has her the ones on the right? The black ones. But I don't know. I'm kind of I'm look far beat for me to tell Kobe had a dribble a basketball. But this theme of like anyone who's played some pickup hoop this. If I roll my ankle, do it and hire doing low high tops type tightly worked pen in nicely prevent they invented high talent here, raise it don't roll is easily a range of motion thing, I want to be able to get a little more motion as I gotta tell ya is a guy, you know, talk to sweetness talked the dead running back. Yes. Hang goes and spats spat it up Cango. That's not come. Hang goes in Spanish, not there's not. Dispatched you're thinking gay so different. When they when they tape up your ankle like all the way up the call that spatting you up out outside of the bowler and his no him. Him outside of his Cleves. Like his mobility was just fine. It's crazy. They create almost defacto cast with the amount of tape that just wrap your entire shoe ankle whole contraption is the role that way in high school and loved it. You've never felt more secure on grass making a cut or exceleron or stopping. So I don't know about the range of motion stuff. But anyway, all right roller ankle when he I'm expanding on there. Also a lot lighter. That's a lot. Interesting. All right. I'll play some unprepared from the Wilbur theatre in a second. I we got banks bracket, man.

I I'm from north Hollywood. So I don't really have any issues with ducks. I've never really seen one. That's live. I I do I do talk to the guys are really into duck hunting. But I think guys are really not duck hunting or like the same guys you're really into ice fishing, which is we're really into getting drunk. Well, we're not so into getting judged, and so we want to sit here and get completely fucking wasted. But if I do it on my front lawn and a folding chair bathroom my ball sack out. I will be judged. What if I sit in this duck blind, and I blow into this clothes pin? I can have all the fucking as I want before noon. And also, look how fucking lazy are you as a duck hunter? Like, here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna sit on my ass and drink eventually a bunch of ducks they're going to fly by I'll use some call the shotgun. Oh, this ain't day. The jackal up.

I didn't bring a proud. I didn't bring. That's right. Well, it'd be fair to Lynch. He's lives on top of the theater like he he's. Exactly. I'm not bring him. That's what you get. He was basically glorified. Uber. He just picked us up at the airport took us to the legal seafood, or whatever the place has what is the seafood place. What's that chain legal seafood? Yeah. Max paddock come on. Now. What is that place? Legal seafood. Benny legal seafoods. Yeah. Eagle seafood. I think there's a sort of a chain of them that are around the Boston area. I don't care what it's called. I will eat that. That looks amazing. We're looking at a picture of him. Yeah. That looks amazing early version of that loss. Yeah. Our version of that there used to be a place in in. I've never spoken about this. I think in a world where I've said told every story one hundred times tell me if you've ever heard this and nine story, it's just by the van ice courthouse. The reserve small shack. It was a hotdog stand. There was called law dogs. Good, and you wouldn't go there get hot dogs, and they would also give legal advice what the guy. Guy urban law dog or law dogs was. A lawyer, I guess, and he opened this hotdog shack and the lower was would go there. She's going to be three hundred seventy five dollars lower eleven year old girl. They're going to be a Mansa fide. Wait a minute. Emancipated man's rated minor. I don't like my parents chilli cheese. Yeah. Like. Scoops laude law dog. How is a lot even there anymore? It was literally a shack. I mean, just a box like a cinder box cinder block box. It was near the van Nuys courthouse. What a great idea. You wanna get your legal advice from? I mean, if all you can to rippers and let me do about child support. I have two dollars. I'm starving. Equally Christie Bishop has had a bad injury from wearing low top shoot. Okay. Deep dive a law docks. Christie. Hello. Hello. Yes. That's you lines. Hey, so you played brag about playing volleyball at the highest level. You can. I played for nine years almost ten years, and I was asked to play at USC, and I turned it down. And that was the year they won the national reform that got away down because I was burnt out after nine or ten years, you're done. And I was let's say they inflate your height records about skip all though, I'm five eight and they had me at six one. And I that was not true. It was a non scholarship wasn't like she turned down a free ride USA. Right. We never been got that far. It was my high school. Coach was the new USC coast bring on as the basically defensive specialist or like, basically back the backyard. So you only come in in the back, three rotations. And I'd rather I join a thirty which was a mistake. But it was fine. But I did hurt my ankle really badly akin to tell ya and some girl. It was my senior year the second game of the season was the middle blocker and some girl who is not particularly great during a practice jumped into the net and landed like two feet underneath the net. And I probably landed on top of her feet rolled my ankle, so poorly that I couldn't walk like, luckily, I didn't like, but I was out for the rest of the season so high top and by the way of often wondered like always been envious, not view, but of prion because you're. Oh, jeez. Such I'm with motor. And you're so on top of everything, and you always prepare, and, blah, blah, blah. And I've always about a voice. These are unique traits. Not not a lot of my friends wives. Have this kind of preparation and motor and focus and everything else. But in it's something that an intense sports background. And or the military will bring out in a person that the elisa's most the, friends wives. Don't have any kind of intense sports background and you do. And now it all makes sense to me. Now, you focus, right. So we never really volleyball swimming. Yeah. For you. I mean starting from like fifth grade till almost college, right? But you now have you take that focus and that ability to sort of keep keep persevering versus, you know, I'm tired of getting out of the pool or too early or whatever that is channeled it into into your adult life, which I. Yes. He clearly. Okay. So now, it's good everything is right. My world, but we're high top volleyball ever thing babe Christie. Everything for guys for guys. They were girls they weren't. That's what I recall like from a style perspective no Berle's ever wanted to wear high top. But even when you did they didn't provide the ankle protection that you would need to like I was telling locks on that when I did come back to play like at the end of this using whatever I had to wear one ankle brace on her angle. And then I also hoard one preventatively on the right angle. Just because I didn't want to have another injury comfy, right? What I think? I think we'll we're trying to drill down here. A little bit is for anyone played hoops. Which is the high top tennis shoe doesn't prevent the ankle role. But it does cut down it for some percentage. So like what happened to you may have happened, whether you were high tops or low tops, but what happened in talian may have been prevented if she had a high top the part where there's a human underneath Yoon you land on that that that may be that even then you might cut it might be ten percent less severe or whatever. Yeah. Maybe ten percent ten fifteen. But you know, if she's landing on the ground to see land on from analysis have now she's saying she she didn't land on someone else. She just did it she maybe could've prevented it. But so high top for the boys that's probably where I saw them and low top for the girls a little more for stylistic standpoint. Yeah. Which is ironic because we wore like the Hucker short like not even. Not even expanded because it was legit harder shorts. You had nothing but lake and then towards the bottom you had these little tiny shoes. Or if you're like me have calf high ankle, braces, like Forrest Gump? So it's not it's just a little bit ironic. But yeah, I mean from south perspective, none of us liked the high top they were big they were bulky. They didn't come in Email back. Then it was like, you know, the the mid nineties, they didn't come and female sizes or colors or designs. And nobody wanted them like a whole different story in one could say that the men playing indoors replaying at a high level and they're doing it with high top. So it's it worked for them. So I I'm gonna look into some of these for Natalia. You should. I mean, she. Okay, she he's screwed up her ankle. But it's like my kind of feeling is if I'm going to pay a premium for specialty shoes to play volleyball. Keep rolling your ankle. Let's paint exer- eight bucks and get the top ones. Yeah. Yeah. I'm with you thing feels okay she'll buy thanks for calling in. We do. Appreciate it. You can listen to commercial grade. It's podcasts on apple podcasts. She she expands. Everybody loves what she does here. Now, she gets to talk as long as she wants about it. It's great. Yeah. So it's interesting that I pictured indoor volleyball and high tops. But I guess it was the guys wearing them. But either way I'll look into it. And I don't own Italian may make stink. Well, she won't even drive in the car with professional piano tuner of the stars. And that's a professor on this. This is of the stars are to the star. Right. The Hollywood SARS now. I'll Hollywood star. You got a law dog clip lot dog. Yeah. Points have suffered. And this lawyer of thirty three years is no typical hotdog stand owner just trying to make our profession. Look a little better a little bit more appealing.

Offend was framed I wanna know how to clearing so we can get a job. And maybe three or four months ago. He like. Like once a week customers lineup at law dogs to get a healthy serving of help the dogs cost about a dollar fifty. The advice is free. Hold on hold. Right. Write this down, by the way.

No dog. Well, look, I'm just taking this guys. You know, there's a lot of folks out there that need to looking at or just like not everyone can afford class legal advice. Not everyone can afford to go to college. Okay. Same thing. And I'm not a weird. I'm not going to serve tacos. That's a little right? Check rashes. You you look for five broads. Okay. What was that one? Fibroids? They're quite common in women prevent no far from it. They can prevent you from Beal L to get pregnant often have to have surgery to remove them.

But she any woman any race can hop up on the stirrups, and I will take a look I'll refer my friends. Nobody's so goes without saying. What I do. But I do with my Stirrup, no tables.

No table. As one hundred fifty one pounds eating grading. And you know, if someone gets up there, and it's over that it it'll just snap and come down teacher. Obviously, we're not gonna have an uncomfortable conversation. It's just like, oh, well, the tables, bro, come back. I would have that hot dog after the appointment of Janata weirdo. The law dog menu plaintiff dog judge dog Jerry dog. Is it still there? If it is they have no web presence at all. Old school say no, it's not around. So I just came into a drive by I would pass that place in van is all the time shots that you never went there for legal advice. This move. I didn't have anything I needed legally taken care of. But. God there was Pap who's hot dog show or whatever was dog show. They're all there is about hot. John's hot dog there's up there was dog and suds. There was tail the pup tale.

Our kids aren't really going to know as all those weird funky kind of stained literally or any storms literally everything is TGI Friday by the by the the fruit-cart, right? So they would take cinderblocks, and they would make a space that was like fourteen foot deep and eighteen foot wide, and that was about it like put a walk up window, and then you'd put tacos or whatever in it. And that would be the place weird funny funky old, but they all had their own personalities to them. And like we'd love the Weiner factor that Weiner factor inventors still there, but they did their kind of dog and they're like. A tight bun or whatever their Chile would be a little different kraut might be read crowd of the yellow crowd. Whenever pinks. Yeah. Which I've never had really. Miss much never had paying.

I know I always had one of my one of my funny when Jimmy nine would just argue about whatever like you just go button to go that I'd go fruit in the middle on the yogurt. You go impossible dull fruit at the top goes down to the bond. Just whatever said one time we passed by pinks, and there's just a line going around the block hurt. It was like, you know, lunchtime noon on a Wednesday. And I just said heard that places a mediocre dog wise a line going all the way around it. And then I pause.

And then everyone looked at me. He should have done it like, okay through this Zil really shouldn't be my phone that he said, no, I don't want to do it. I think later on was like he was sponsored by Honda Toyota, and this was a Pontiac thing. And he's like, I don't want to do it. And then in real time with ten seconds sign. Everyone just looked at me when you doing. I went all do it. And then it came. I don't get why you didn't let him do it. It's like, I he didn't wanna do it. I you can fire me.

Here that to to listen to podcasts eighty two percent over honky avenue, which is a very good song. Eighteen percent RJ bell. Hello, Mr. Corolla. You have your bracket for worked out of sorry. We have an intro here. Looking at something else. Jays are presented like that. DAS with figures insider RJ bell had a long deep dive with sunny Karol on his bracket last night. Oh, nothing like hearing about someone else's bracket. That's all I hear from him. I was actually operating a rowing machine while he was doing throwing sheep he asked and he was doing a deep dive on on his bracket has March madness bracket. But I guess we can also focus a little on the rich banks bracket as well. So what he got RJ? What do you think? What are we down to now? Well, first off, I think sometimes especially my industry, that's pretty shady past. There's a lot of over the top hyperbole and sometimes just the facts on. So we had a bracket collectively appre dot com. Put it in the PIN, you know, the millions of people and we're in the ninety nine percentile. So I just wanna say that flatly without any high partly about greatness. But no one being bad or just just ninety nine percent tile in. Oh. By the way. Hey, you know, we both. We all love Kevin being you know, I'm on with them. They let me in their bracket. Contests doesn't make a lot of sense. I'm sitting at the very top. And they're all looking up waving at you. I. Farted? Oh, by the way. Let me tell you guys about farting on a rowing machine. You know, the let me explain something to everybody. Once you stop talking for a while. They will when you when it comes out of mobiles, you know, the gas goes into the cylinder the cast mixes with the air become sort of a gas becomes fuel than gasoline vapor, and then it explodes. But there's lots of talk about like how to get it in there, the induction and the intake manifold as you want to smooth it out, and you want to go in and make them more explosive form of gas me something when you're pulling on that rowing machine with the chain in wish a back and forth. It's not only that the fan air that's blowing at you. I had some point sunny was telling me about his bracket, and I just sort of came in and late an age, and he sort of stood there like laughed, and then at some point it got caught up in the four cats of the fan and McCain is weapon is it's like that thing where you're driving a vague. And it's hot outside and somebody blows gas car, and you open the window. Don't do that. Hell hot air. I'm moment. You'll get weaponized as hot air. Like, that's what happening literally had to go in another part of the house. Now, did he return if you minutes later to continue talking about his bracket, he returned because out of one point five million people? He was to eighteen is that right? That's what that's he said. There's one point five in the Terni his Turney and he's at two eighteen and then fetter the ninety nine percent. I no we proceeded to try to break down. What that what that percent was? And obviously it's way less than one percent. But yeah, he returned. Because of that, listen if Sonny wants to go ahead with me in Adam you wouldn't be the intermediary. We could get that'd be fun for the show like, you know, ten twenty thousand or something like that. Well, you know. R J as long as our stands for ROY. He could go see ROY and go head to head. Amazingly is one perfect bracket left. Really first time this deep into the tournament that we've seen one that anyone you know, there's rumors about and nineteen eighty seven. I just want seven had thing. But whatever, but the truth is there is a perfect bracket laughed odds of it so far. So we took the Vegas money line and said, okay, Madge, if you've got a dollar bet it on the first game. Then you let it ride let it ride let it ride with all the games. It's about one hundred ten million to one hundred fifty one million to one so amazing. There's even one perfect bracket laughed, but many games many games ago. How where are we now?

And traveling around. Bob is now does Bob do. Bob cat when he does stand up now. No, not really Bob sort of Bob's, Bob. Now. But both of them they're sort of one in the same. It's really Keith Richards onstage and op stage, I'm not comparing Bob to Keith. But it's like there's a there's a stage affect but he's pretty much himself. He refers to it as the voice. Yeah. It's a Bob. Bob cat became so like incredible successful. And then Bob got a little caught up not caught up, but almost a little trapped by zone success of his own character. Yeah. Famously lesser degree when my character mister Burcham became really popular on k rock. And then they wanted me to do love line and Kevin Weatherly program director famously said to me, I think what you to host what line as vista Burcham. And it's like two hours a night five nights a week. Mr. Burcham any went, well, we know Bertram funny. We don't know if you're. Well, he's in the car. Let me go Chok talk to each other. It was a funny. I mean, anyone no-show business noses are real phone call real conversations or could we know? He's funny jury's out on you. It's also the the whole premise, and I've had this happening. But before the punchline is so good just do the punchline. Yeah. Well, you need the other thing too off the air. You're doing your funny. Paul lynn. All right. Is there any other center square center square for the Hollywood squares for all those years, a guy that my grandfather thought was hysterical his whole life because he thought Paul was coming up with everything off the cuff, and he would watch Hollywood squares while eating lunch in north Hollywood come on at one o'clock in the afternoon, guys. Lightning fan do that. Yeah. He would've probably knew he was gay probably would have downgraded him to amusing. Hysterical. There's a thing in the seventies. Where we were kids. It's like they're not we didn't know about gay guys. But we knew about guys that were Ascot's. Yes. Hell Charles Riley. And and there are two women that are Chelsea. Paul Lynn is Alice ghostly and Charles Nelson Reilly is JoAnne. Wurley Alice sleep. It's always the neighbors. Like, oh, my she was always worrying pollen pollen was death. Right. I'll go with. Yes. Yes. Sure. You're to. There's there's a lot of done not yet. And like almost every Richard Pryor movie should've just been called Richard pride. Prior scared. Richard Richard like walking like, oh, no there's clan like behind horses. Everything was just he's scared. He's so I was thinking there's only one joke. I remember. My grandfather told me, and I'll I'll set you up with it, and you can deliver it as as Paul land. And developing all-terrain up on on the punchline. When I when you hear this setup by God. Who was it back? Then who Marshall Peter Marshall when Peter Marshall ask you this. The punchline is ignore it and keep on driving. Okay. Paul. What do you do with a lady finger, ignorant and capon Dr? Another great one. And it was like when they started to hint that he was like L everybody knows. I'll never forget. It was. Appall when a man falls overboard on a cruise ship. They yell men overboard, what do they want a woman falls, overboard fame ahead? Oh god. No, one of my grandfather was so delighted. Famously mean drunk really just happen to know that him and Carson. Yeah. I think that show which just on in the middle of the day for a long time and back. I don't know that game show. I mean, I guess there's drew Carey and prices, right or whatever. But this games, it'd be like eleven AM to two would be the sweet spot for game shows kind of depressed concede, but the people. They did the circuit. Like, there's just, you know, you're Charleston nipsy. Russell on JoAnne Worley, and all they did the same group that would just do everything nine people. And then there were like then there was the gong show with like PJ Morgan weird names. Like, I don't know where the came. I'm not sure what they're. Who is who else is on the gong show. I J P Morgan JP more. A singer. I there were all like in my mind famous from being on the show to be some background there. Yeah. Well, nipsy Russell was a pretty well known nightclub comic. Right. I don't know. I think j who else Betty, Jamie. Match game was Betty white. Not many white Jack Klugman wife. Ooh. Deep dive there. Oh, you know. Yeah. You'll find max battle find it. Find it all, but there's all these crazy comedic personnel. These and they seem to like not have a care in the world. Although there were probably all kind of miffed because it meant there on certain on that sunset of their career. Like, they all had bigger careers in the sixties fifties or something announced the seventies. Or you're not really in demand any more. But also like match game. You know, they're hammered like you can see 'cause they would shoot them all in one day, and oh let's do celebrity match game now and there's a full bar back there. And in terms of being hammered. So the way it works. And and I do four shows maybe five shows. So even though I do like to partake on a in a first class cabin of a flight. I try not to take it easy on the Poos and show one because I will be vomiting into a lamp shade. By by the four show Las let you wanna vomit into what they do. Is you go up there, and you sit there, and you do the show and during the break, whatever it is you ordered. So if as I I'll just go just gimme soda water, regular, water, whatever. But if you go give me gin and tonic they'll go, okay. And they'll give you gin tonic, and then you'll go out there and you'll sit down with the gin and tonic and you'll be playing the game. And you'll be sipping off your gin and tonic so old school during the commercial the guy come out fresh in it up what you'll do four shows and have nineteen commercial breaks. And each time the guy just keep. Pouring up. I mean, it's that thing where it's like your drink the red wine and soon as you get to the halfway point it goes right back to the top. And you're short of distracted. And also, if you're drinking beers, you can kind of look on the countertop and go. All right. Drink five years time to reel it in. Because there's corpses. Just keep like imagine. If you decide a beer mug and just kept walking over and topping on one beer, you've had one that goes on forever. Is that kind of the point to loosen you guys up a little? For continuity, right? Isn't it? The whole reason to keep it at the same. Continuity from eyeball. They want people like being outrageous and being whenever sloppy Cheryl tonight show would do the same thing. But this they keep filling it over the course of our very Brett Somers rat summers. Who was super foxy when she was young. Yeah. This was the middle age. You know, everybody's smoking in a in a polyester pantsuits, right right yet breath from. Oh, and that dos. Richard Dawson, wouldn't would host Larry Hovis. Larry Hovis was Hogan's heroes heroes. All right. And he was on. Yeah. All those. I think he was on tattle tales a lot of liars club. Yeah. I let wires club. Make me laugh was always good Paris. The gong show guy gong show guy before crude. I believe Paul Reubens made his TV premiere on the gong show valley. Yeah. It's doing what they went to the groundlings because the gun show is originally was pretty stage for a lot of action. They go like, hey, do you wanna come and pretend you're bad? Do your bad comedian bit. Yeah. I and I know Murray Langston was the unknown comic. I think it was sort of the same thing. There's only one unknown comic joke that made me laugh so Murray Langston, what's the unknown comic the bag on the head guy bag on the head guy. And you just go out there the Brown bag on his head do jokes. Jackie jackie. Jackie. Jackie. Jackie. Jackie. That's the one thing. He did that made me laugh, which is at some point during the gong show. During one of those shows he was in the audience, and he's sitting there is got this bag on his head. And it's a pristine bags on Ted Eddie sitting next to another guy got all crumpled up bag on his head. And he goes enjoying the show grandpa. I was like eleven. Took your. Oh, right. Gary mule deer. Oh, yeah. Right. The the comic Gary meal there who by the way. Narrow and my big arguments. Mike August where he was right? I was like cut a name is made up name. And I was like why would you call meal? It's a weird name or whatever. And it's like that that isn't made up name that sounds like a made up name, but not the one, you know, like, I, you know, I do Chad white cock. Take two animals put them together or the white. It's the your. All right Huel is here Hugh will house her. So when you go out with the with Bob, do you to someone open to someone close together, we go? No, no, no. We trade of we. Bob cat, and our friends, and we were just like, let's let's do some dates, and so we're doing through may and June. We're doing a whole bunch of cities. It's Dana Gould dot com, or it's called the show with two heads, and we're going to. Yeah. You said Chicago, Boston Portland. An apple is marching in DC. We're all your major markets come on out and see us and we had a trick naming the tour, but the one was the middle aged white guys of comedy. It was time. Second time we're going on tour anyway. That was. Two or nobody wanted. Bob is making indie films, right? Yeah. He's really good director, the I know he's really carved on a niche and self and made weird sort of niche, but kind of interesting funny his show, I will say like his show on TRU misfits and monsters, which I think is also coming under Hulu was it was it was it was it was like saying against evil. It was a horror comedy anthology. Right. And he wrote them all himself, and they're amazing. You know, he's. My friend. But like, even if I didn't it wasn't. He's crazily talented always knew it. And we know God women we used to see Bob when he'd come into k rock me and Jimmy back when you know, it was like, oh my God. You know, Robin Williams. Holy crap. Mean Jimmy the sports guy. All right. We got bar sto. We got oh sorry setup. Three assailing filled with baseball hats. Here's the place to get sock. Get ready. It's time to go digging for Hules gills Corollas excited on the Adam Corolla show the app some people ask if that was about made it's not like a woman named Corolla. I gotta say it was a former Kayla sex employee tipped me off like doing the drops. Like, I know you to heal house her I heard this on on TV tonight's the greatest job ever Corollas excited and his back before you know, I had to sit sit a search on my DVR and looking your later came back on a rerun I recorded it, and yes a woman named Corolla and they came back from break Corollas excited because he was about some butterfly or something flowers. Yeah. He'd always just love it. He'd be like your dog eat avocados. It's like twenty minutes of marveling that and I'm like. Olas excite by doggies anything that's on the ground. It could be made a Vulcan is rubber Phil will eat it. We're marveling my dog ate a squirt gun. Yeah. If it's on the ground, you drop it. He's eating it. That's how goes all. Right. We start with the you'll setup in his open ended adventure. Interesting choice of words, everybody he will house her. And here we are right out on the side of good ole interstate fifteen heading east out across California's high desert. There's the little town of bar sto down there now to be completely honest with you, I think when most of us think about fifteen we think about the easiest the quickest and most direct route to get us from southern California to Las Vegas. And when we think about that route we think about a route that takes us through some of the most. Desolate on interesting country anywhere in our space. Well, that's about it. Keep enticing me. Whole trip is going to take us from bar sto to the California Nevada State line, and we're going to slow down and actually stop at points of interest along the way. You just said there weren't any. We know about already because I've been reading up in mature book others because this is an open ended adventure. We're gonna just see what we see out the window. And if we see something that's our fancy that raises are curiosity. We're just going to pull over and take a look at it and explore it now for those of you who are who can't see the the most important thing that you have to know is a little thing I like to call catnip for them for the gals out there, and that's a shirt tucked into shorts pleaded show. Cargo you tuck, you you get a you get a three button sports your tucked into shorts, and it's Katie bar the door. And as you know, women because women as you may or may not know have a small bomb in their front. Now, the other thing that's interesting is that in. Yes, I know you've never had time to settle down. No, I'm rambling man on an open ended adventure. You can rearrange those words. And it's still a true sentence. And I feel bad for the ladies, you know, because you know, I every town you leave behind a disappointed Gail prison. Yeah. That's what I'm saying. Because your qualities eight just you're a steady. I mean is awesome. What look. I often Thad I look like of Peter graves inflated. I look like the Macy's day. Thanksgiving float of Peter graves snow on the roof colon furnace. That's my motto. Well, you know, I gotta say I've always felt bad for the ladies, you know, guys. Great again, more grambling guys like confirmed bachelor didn't have time to settle down. Tab hunter's. These guys guys would have made a woman so happy again, yet alas I have to move on all in Charles Nelson. Wral the trae, oh, you can look but nice to handle nice to hold. But if you break it market sold. That's right. And so what I'm saying is got away. I would have said I would I would rather leave a thousand women unsatisfied then try to satisfy one. I know better. Yeah. Better to not have tried and maybe strike up a pen pal relationship with one of their relatives then to try and fail. Yeah. Like that. Grand funk railroad song American band. Exactly. It's sort of a pen pal version of that. Exactly. Yeah. So town, right. Your thoughts down. Any for your thoughts? Right. See, you know, sometimes I was I was in a in a small town. And you know, I locked eyes of her is her is right to my fanny pack. Mine went to her Adam's apple. Trick. And here I am. I'm in lompoc. And who do I meet at a Donut Donut?

Hules her daughters of Bali genetic. Oh chat. Chaz. Shares Chaz chastity chess chastity Bono. Also lonely lovely with a fine prominent Adam's apple I've heard a lot from chess Bono in a while. Do you guys know last last time I saw him on television. I thought someone should be doing the tour Johnson one man show in Branson, Missouri. Looks like the Swedish the Swedish angel t really famous wrestler. He is are they as he I think it's he its heels a first stop and bar sto is an Inbar sto. Adam the only man that will say desolate stretch of uninteresting road. And then the next sentence say stop. Here. It is now to be completely honest with you. We didn't have a clue where are actual first. Stop on this road trip was gonna be. But as we approached what we thought was bar sto fun, directing us to California welcome center. Now that seemed like a perfect place to get our Barron. So we pulled off the freeway turned out we weren't in barstool at all. But in the new and fast-growing unincorporated joining community of Lynnwood, which was filled with clothing outlet store. Well, we weren't shopping for clothes. So we headed straight for the good old. Welcome center. The buckling growing. But again words that you don't normally hear together. Bustling growing unincorporated. Pallet stores, we saw a job dropping collection of breathtaking empty milk jugs. So insane. Like during the west we encountered a toilet with no seat. Louis. Get in here you ever seen this underneath underneath my bench at the bus station is what can only be described as a gang of debt grasshoppers. What a so will happens into the California visitor center, which by the way, I'm angry that my tax dollars went to that center. But I'm still more angry that they went to fuel. You'll well there's also the thing if you know anything about the California visitor's center in Lynwood, California that when the when you push open the door and the little bell rings that the guy behind the counter immediately. The pistol goes out of his mouth and back in the drawer. Let's let's see what he had to say. Oh, so this is in following the visitor's center, lady and the car. Following. Now, they tell me never let you change my location, but I'm going to go with you. Okay. Now, it looks like we're coming into the old part of bar sto. You can kind of tell when you look at the buildings. All yeah. Look, it's like a little central part. Of the town right here. Just stashed cancel the heart. Spock's bar stucco boxes. Where we're going and women there's the sign historic route sixty six so we're on route sixty six right now. And we're pulling into. No, you can say it. This is what he starts in. Now. That reminds me there are seven ways to kill a horse with your fair hand. Many involving the throat this show views have Huel at least at the tortilla factory in our leader. Now, he just puts the driver on the dash. Any probably loops the whole thing. We know he's in the car. That's true. I wonder like Hewlett purgatory is just like they drop him in a camera crew off at a three hundred sixty degree white psych. There's a giant cyclorama? There's more nothing over here vast expanse of emptiness persona find the Tillery of existence itself. But since I'm in purgatory, I could kill myself now, and then wake up to a tanned my own funeral. I think about it. If you will is in heaven and. By most accounts. He should be there. The Lord frowns upon his lifestyle. Yeah. But I'd like to think he's an all forgiving Lor. True. He led a virtuous life in the he helped the lot of people when had just. Just imagine human. Oh, my Lord, look if John Lennon ABRAHAM LINCOLN, George Washington, but first here's Sean McGinty of or or he only has seven and a half fingers.

Because normally they come in a bag and what I don't like is those neighborhood kids using those tubes to mail their own feces to their enemies. He'll wasn't I passed away before the invention of Pringle. So I know not what you say. But the difference between making a model lay in a be twenty-five Superfortress quite detail. Well, if you liked it I've ever seen more than three potato chips and understand how difficult they are to stack. When I show you a can of Pringles be prepared to pollute your bloomers. The ball turret gun was one of the most confounder engineering problems. We had overcome of World War Two the Nazi measure Smith's and stupas were. Upon us.

Donald Trump's book the art of the deal, his TV show the apprentice and his successful presidential campaign were based on his image as a brilliant dealmaker and self made billionaire. But recent near times reporting reveals a different narrative. It's based on a trove of more than one hundred thousand pages of documents, including confidential tax returns and financial records given to the times by a secret source. The documents reveal that by age three Trump is earning two hundred thousand dollars a year as measured in today's dollars from his father. Fred Trump's real estate empire, Fred Trump made Donald Trump a millionaire by the time. Donald was eight over the years. Donald received today's equivalent of four hundred thirteen. Million dollars from his father's businesses. Much of this money was transferred from father to son with the help of schemes designed to avoid paying taxes some of which according to my guests or outright fraud. Suzanne Craig and David Bar sto are two of the reporters at the New York Times who wrote a long investigative article about the many tax maneuvers Fred Trump devised to pass his vast fortune onto his children.

A lawyer for President Trump provided a written statement, saying, quote, there was no fraud or tax evasion by anyone. The facts upon which the times basis it's false allegations are extremely inaccurate, unquote, but neither the president nor his lawyers disputed any of the specifics in the times financial reporting, Suzanne Craig, David Barstow, congratulations on the extrordinary piece of. Reporting and welcome to fresh air. It's such a pleasure to have you here. Give us a sense of Fred Trump Donald Trump's father's real estate empire when it was at its peak for Trump was a remarkable builder in in New York's history. He was a guy who had built and sold his first home before he reached the age of twenty. By the time he was in his mid thirties. He was building hundreds of homes a year by the time he was in his mid forties. He was really one of the biggest developers actually in the country and what he specialized in was building middle-class housing, his homes, which he built in his apartment buildings, which he built in almost entirely in Brooklyn queens were kind of these no frills homes that he was able to Bill very quickly using a lot of the techniques of mass production. He was described as the the Henry Ford. Of of building in Brooklyn and queens had his in. So we have enormous skill building middle-class housing, and he also specialized in tapping into this wave of Federal Housing subsidies that began to build in the thirties in the forties, and especially with the return of the GI's from more more to and he would become one of the nation's biggest recipients of cheap federal loans to build middle-class housing. And so at his peak, this is a guy who presided over real estate empire of many, many, many thousands of units, all cross, Brooklyn, queens, and Staten Island to a certain degree. His biggest apartment complexes are these just these enormous mini cities, you know, twenty five hundred units or so. I mean, just there's monster, complex monster complexes that we're not talking to three unit buildings. We're talking about. Out buildings with hundreds of units. So so one of the paradoxes here is that Fred Trump. Built his fortune in part on taking advantage of cheap federal loans, especially after World War Two. When g is returning from the war really needed housing. And yet he didn't pay the taxes that he owed or he didn't pay nearly the amount of taxes that he owed. So he took in a lot of federal dollars and didn't give the federal government what he was supposed to give it at tax time. That's exactly right. He felt he was vehemently opposed to the idea that as he passed this fortune onto his family, that he should pay any kind of tax whatsoever on the transfer of that wealth to his children in. He took while kinds of measures that we described in the story to avoid paying either gift taxes or later on estate taxes because of this belief that. He just felt that what he had made he, you know, the government just didn't didn't have a right to a single event. Your investigation really like deconstructs the Donald Trump. Myth of the self made man who got like a one million dollar loan from his father and use that to build this enormous fortune and this real estate empire, the actual story which report starts when he's like three years old and starts getting like two hundred thousand dollars a year in today's dollars. So what was the process by which by age three, he was getting hundreds of thousands of dollars from his father. That started in nineteen forty nine, and it was one of the projects that that had got that Fred Trump had received government funding to build. It was a complex called beach haven and what Fred Trump dead. It was quite ingenious as he bought the land underneath beach haven, the complex that he would go on to build, and he placed the land in a trust for the benefit of his five children. And then he started paying them rent. He makes them his landlord and every year they continue to get payment so they can make some. Second, I don't really understand how three-year-old Donald Trump can be his father's landlord. Can you explain that? Sure. It was his land to do what he wanted with and he put it in a trust. In this instance, when they were very young for their benefit and began paying them run, it's completely legal. But that's sort of one of the ways in which he early on. You know, he's an his point. It's in the nineteen forties. His children are young and he's looking for ways you would imagine at this point to begin to take care of his children as they get older so that they, you know, when they grow up, they've got money in it as a way to transfer what is now. He's becoming a very rich man. The one way to begin to transfer wealth to them. This is the first one had happened in nineteen forty nine. So what are some of the ways that by the time Donald Trump was a teenager. He was already wealth. What are some of the other ways his father gave him money. He began doing a number of things. So he started buying or building apartment complexes in Brooklyn and greens, and then gradually transferring ownership of those apartment complexes to his children. So for example, Donald when he was seventeen years old, became co owner with his family members of fifty two unit apartment building in Brooklyn that his father had acquired for them, and so they would over time Fred Trump assembled a roughly eight apartment complexes over a thousand units in all that he transferred to a variety of mechanisms to his children. And so those thousand units start churning out profits that flowed effortlessly into the pockets of his children. We actually Dr. Demented in our reporting two hundred ninety five different revenue streams that Fred Trump alternately created for Donald Trump over fifty year period. Fred Trump was so ingenious at finding different ways of putting money into Donald Trump's pocket. So he didn't just put him on his payroll as a salary employees. He also paid him separately to be a consultant to him. He paid him separately to be a property manager for him. He paid him separately to be a purchasing agent for him on an on. It would go. He was getting laundry revenue from from Fred Trump and from the headings. So you know, some of these revenue streams were relatively modest. Some of them were kind of one hit wonders, but when you add it all up, it was this incredible stream of money that may Donald Trump. He was a millionaire actually, by the time he was eight or nine. Years old before he ever entered set foot into Manhattan where he would make his name, Fred Trump had already transferred to him over nine million dollars in wealth. You say by the time he was twenty nine thousand nine hundred seventy five. Donald Trump had collected nearly nine million the equivalent of nine million dollars in today's dollars from his father when he was thirty and nine hundred seventy six. The myth of Donald Trump really starts to expand. There's nineteen Seventy-six article and your newspaper than here times and you describe it as one of the first major Donald Trump profiles and a cornerstone of decades of myth making about his wealth. What did the article say? What were the main points of this nineteen? Seventy six article about Donald Trump. It was really one of the first big big profiles that ran of Donald Trump and Donald Trump did something in this particular profile that he would actually repeat and use to great effect and subsequent profiles, which was he took the New York Times reporter on a tour of what he called his jobs. His empire in he starts driving around New York, pointing out this building in that building and talking about how wonderful they were doing and effectively what he was doing was he was appropriating his father's empire as if it were his own empire. So these buildings that he's pointing out is his jobs as part of his empire. There were in fact completely owned by his father. He had known ships taken in any of those buildings. And so what he what he did, especially when it was critical to kind of early myth making Donald Trump was he simply. Certified that his father's empire was his empire. And those claims unfortunately, largely went unchallenged for for many, many years by the reporters who were kind of swept up in the glamour of this young swaggering, handsome guy who was so full of confidence in so full of big plans for the city of New York. And so that story was the thing that I think helped give birth to the myth of Donald Trump, self-made billionaire. One of the things that's really remarkable about that story. When you read at his, you know, he goes through job after job and and says that things that are as father are known. And he tells the reporter that he's worth in excess of two hundred million dollars and everything. He pointed to in the story that would go to his his net worth at that time was his father's. He had attacks. Return of few years later where we see he declared. I think he made twenty five thousand dollars a couple years later. Actually, that's actually that year nineteen seventy six. And yet he was sitting there saying that he was worth two hundred million dollars in. It was a claim that he would part of the claim that would put him on the very first list of wealthiest Americans published by Forbes magazine in nineteen. I want to say anyone eighty eighty eighty one somewhere in there, and it was a spectacular call on and I guess Donald Trump got used to people taking him at his word even when his word wasn't true. Yeah, at these things build up, right? They, they're like these layers, right? And reporters come along and they are signed to do some story about Donald Trump and they go look at the clips or they go look at what's been written about him before and it all kind of accumulates into this sort of settlement of, in this case, the kind of mythology of a man who had at least in his telling of his story. The famous line that he has always said is that he started with a million dollar loan from his father had a pay back with interest, and then he parlay that million dollar loan into a ten billion dollar empire and that remained for the most part, the dominant narrative that he sold. Certainly, you know, to make himself a celebrity into game power, and ultimately it's what he campaigned on very heavily to win, win the presidency. And so this story really die sex that. Narrative, anything more than anything else offers readers now based on actual facts in based on actual documents in entirely new financial narrative of the forty fifth president. Okay. So in addition to you, some tax games, we talked about Fred Trump made a lot of loans to Donald Trump. Donald Trump has always said that he got a million dollar loan from his father and help parlay that into his into his own empire. So how much money would you estimate Fred Trump gave Donald Trump in loans. We were able to document in real dollars sixty million dollars in loans. Not one million in today's dollars equates two hundred forty million dollars in loans, which is on top of the four hundred and thirteen million dollars in direct wealth that we saw transferred to Donald what we what we also saw. I think what is important also is that in many cases, these were loans that were never repaid, you know, he would take out. We were looking at one particular year and it was like every month. He's going back to dad and he's borrowing another couple of hundred thousand bucks and then another five hundred thousand bucks and then a million dollars. It was just like a monthly run to to Fred Trump to get more money. We saw, especially that the flow of loans increase as Donald Trump took on big new. Projects, or they increase when he was suddenly in trouble. You run into another financial ditch. So it was really steady stream that went well beyond. You know, the notion of a guy in his early twenty s getting a million dollars from dad and then being off to the races, these were loans that actually extended well into his forties and fifties. So. So how did Donald Trump use the money that was loaned from his father. Yeah, he used the money for many of his ventures. He had Trump Tower money that he got from Fred Trump was used to support the. It was used to support his ventures in Atlantic City and elsewhere. Many of them went under. I mean, especially look at Donald Trump's history and Atlantic City. He's got several several bankruptcies at one point. He was hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, and this is a time he not only the banks hundreds of millions of dollars. He was in debt to his father and was going this father these very crucial times for more support. So he gets a lot of money from his father tries to build his own empire and end up in debt in a lot of instances instead of making a fortune from his own investments. It also see that when he fell, you know, when he would fall down the safety net, was there the Fred Trump safety net was there to catch him. There's one Specht just almost unbelievable moment in the store, and you see it in nineteen. Ninety, and this is a time in the, you know, the back end of nineteen ninety. Donald Trump is incredible financial distress. Number of his companies are either in trouble. They're facing bankruptcy and Fred Trump had been, therefore him at every turn according to the documents we can see he's assisting him with money. In one case, Donald Trump's casinos, they're facing a debt payment and Fred Trump has a lawyer, go in to the casino and by casino chips and walk out without placing a bad. It was simply a way to give Donald Trump money experience, million dollars worth of was. Million dollars worth of casino chips. And at this period, his father is there for him at every turn and every document that we can see and Donald Trump at this period has a lawyer. One of his lawyers draft a caught assault to his father's well centrally, new will and this cortisol to the will is taken to Fred Trump's house in December nineteen ninety. And Fred Trump immediately sees this cortisol as an attempt by Donald to take control of his empire into potentially put it at risk. And Fred Trump immediately says, no, he freaks out and he makes a call to his daughter who is a federal judge in the lawyer and a new Cada soul within months is drafted that removes Donal is the sole executor of Fred Trump's well inputs, Donald and Robert Trump, and Maryanne Trump in charge of his affairs. And then ultimately anew will is drafted. But you see in the depth of Donald Trump's financial life after all his father. Has done for him that he makes this move. That's incredibly dramatic, move and scarring to the family what he did. So what you're saying I think is at the end of red Trump's life or toward the end of Fred Trump's live, Donald Trump tried to take advantage of him for his for Donald Trump's own good to help Donald Trump bail himself out and Fred Trump. Donald father became suspicious of the sun that he had helped with so much money over so many years. What we know for sure is that Fred Trump perceived this as an attempt by his son to gain complete control over his estate in potentially to use the the the empire that Fred Trump had doggedly impatiently built over many decades to use that empire as potentially as collateral to help bail Donald Trump out of his own financial difficulties. I guess our New York Times reporters, David barstool, and Suzanne, Craig. After a break, we'll talk about another scheme used to transfer wealth from Fred Trump's real estate empire to his children.

My guests are near at times reporter, Suzanne, Craig, and David sto. One of the Trump family concerns when Fred Trump was was old was that he might die owning an empire and having lots of money, meaning that he'd have to pay taxes on all of that. And I think the taxes would have been fifty, five percent. And so Donald Trump and his siblings came up with a plan that involved. And this is something that you discovered. They come up with a plan that involves starting a company. They called all county building supply and maintenance. This was in nineteen Ninety-two Suzanne. Would you describe how this company functioned? Sure. This was an interesting moment, because when you think of Fred Trump, you think of all the buildings that he owned numerous buildings and queens and Brooklyn worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But Fred Trump was also somebody who hated debt. And so he had very. Little dead on these buildings and the documents that we found when we started going through them, we saw he had just mountains of cash, tens of millions of dollars of cash were throwing flowing through his personal Bank accounts and the Bank accounts of the buildings, and this created a huge problem for the siblings because if he died, he would be facing that fifty five percent for state tax. So they created a company in the early nineteen. Ninety s called all county building supply in maintenance, and it was a company. The shareholders were Donald Trump, and his siblings and a nephew of Fred Trump. And what this company did was for years for Trump's buildings would go out and they would buy supplies. He'd see fr everything from fridges and stoves to boilers to supplies of. They needed a new roof to windows. All this stuff would be bought by the buildings, and they would go to like Long Island wholesalers or a Home Depot, and they would get what they need. Needed and Fred, Trump's buildings would pay for that. And then one day, all county, the company that Donald Trump and his sibling own, they would go out and all county would pay for the material. The difference is is if they paid five hundred dollars for fridge stove combo, they would then send a separate invoice, a padded invoice up to Fred Trump and the building that he owned and they would Mark it up to say seven hundred dollars and the shareholders of all county. Donald Trump and his siblings would pocket. The difference this went on for years on item after item after item, and they were successfully able to drain tens of millions of dollars from Fred Trump's buildings this way. So the sole purpose, as far as you can tell of this company that the Trump children created was to inflate the prices of things like boilers and stove, refridgerators, and other like things that buildings need. So. Did they buy them inflate the price, sell it to Fred Trump for his real estate empire pocket, the difference so that they'd make hundreds of dollars every time they'd sell something to Fred Trump. And that was the way of like transferring money from Fred Trump to the siblings, you owners. We started out on the reporting Assam at one of the questions immediately. We knew Fred Trump drove a hard deal. He was very careful with his money an every penny was, you know, you could see you would account for it. He was a guy who would walk construction sites, and if he saw a nail on the ground, he would pick it up and make sure it was used somewhere. So we found it hard to believe that he wasn't already driving a pretty hard deal with the with the dealers and the the, the sellers that he had to to do business with every day from the buildings. But we went out and we looked for possible employees that all county had. Maybe they had a purchasing department that was actually getting better deals. And we through our interviews and the documents that we had, we couldn't find any any even employs that all county had. It was simply a mechanism where it would Mark up the material and then Bill, Fred, it was a busy, an invoice potting operation where they would just overcharge Fred on these items, it serve no other purpose. When the Trump siblings setup, all county, this this company that just existed to siphon money from French Trump and give it to the children did Fred Trump know about the company about the purpose of the company. Was he a knowing part of its creation. We think that he absolutely was. He was in on the strategy meetings where they came up with these ideas and appealed to him because it was he was someone who just hated the idea of paying any kind of gift or state taxes. And we also see his signature on cheques that were written to all county building supply. So he was a man who paid close attention every penny. And so there's there's evidence both in the reporting in the documents that he was absolutely. This was something that he was on board with. And then in a way like the collateral victims of these inflated costs were renters and a lot of Fred Trump properties because he used those inflated costs for boilers and refrigerators and stoves as a way to justify raising the rent. People living in government rent controlled units. That's right. When you're an owner of a building and you have rent controlled apartments, you have people living. On them, you have to apply to the city or the state to have the rent increased and you have to send over proof when you do that that you've made various improvements. And in this case, they use the potted receipts in many instances, the false receipts to say that we made repairs worth one hundred thousand one hundred twenty thousand one. In fact, those repairs may only cost eighty thousand. They use these bogus receipts that they had created to justify higher than what should have been rent increases in the depositions that we have that we obtained during a reporting, Robert Trump Donald Trump's brother talks about this and he says, the higher the markup, the higher the rent, we could charge after Fred, the parent died in June nineteen. Ninety nine at age. Ninety three is the vast mulk of his empire was nowhere to be found in his estate and that that was a testament to the success of the tax strategies to transfer money to the Trump children. But you right? The single largest item included in Fred Trump's. Estate tax return was a ten point, three million dollar IOU from Donald Trump money. Donald Trump appeared to have borrowed the year before Fred Trump died. We've heard stories about Donald Trump's debt to banks, but this is the first I'm hearing that he owed his father millions of dollars when his father died. Will he owed his father money for most of his life in there were repeated strategies through the years to do something about those unpaid. That's that would accumulate. So for example, in the late nineteen eighties at this point, Donald Trump owed his father somewhere in the neighborhood of fifteen million bucks. And the problem is that if his father simply canceled the debt, well, in the eyes of the IRS, a canceled dollar of debt is the same as a dollar of income. So Fred, trumpet simply canceled the debt and said, I forgive you. You don't have to pay me back. Donald Trump would have owed a chunk of tax for what's called cancellation of debt. So Donald Trump in Fred Trump came up with this other way of making that debt completely disappear and involved trading that debt for a stake in one of Donald Trump's. Buildings. So fifteen million dollars of four. So of debt for a stake in a building called Trump palace in then. And then few years later, Fred Trump sold that fifteen million dollar steak back to his son for ten thousand dollars. Poof, there goes that huge debt. My guests are near times reporter, Suzanne Craig, and David Bar snow after a break, we'll talk more about the reporting into how Donald Trump became wealthy through money transfer from his father, Fred Trump's real estate empire. This is fresh air support for this NPR podcast, and the following message come from the American Petroleum Institute. The natural gas and oil industry is becoming more high tech every day through innovative technologies such as three d. mapping and machine learning.

Oil are turning brainpower into horsepower taxed energy to seven, three zero, seven, five. Hi, this is Peter cycle for twenty years. Wait, wait, don't tell me has been making fun of the news with comedians and celebrity guests. We got silly lyrics. We got terrible impressions. If you think the news is a joke, wait till you hear our show new podcast episodes are available every Saturday. Let's get back to my interview with New York Times reporters, Suzanne Craig, and David Bar sto who along with Russ Butte near published a long investigative article this month, but have Fred Trump used schemes to avoid paying taxes while transferring money from his real estate empire to Donald Trump measured in today's dollars. Donald received about four hundred thirteen million Suzanne after Fred Trump die. Donald Trump took the lead in decided they should sell off everything that Fred Trump still owned at the time of his death. Why did Donald Trump make that decision? So the interesting thing about that sale and it's something that we noticed again, and again, when we were doing our reporting was that Fred Trump very much wanted this empire to stay in the family. He had kept it together through his whole life, and he had hoped that after his death, they would keep it. And I think what we can never really get into Donald Trump's mind as to why he sold it in in two thousand and three. There was a family meeting and they had regular family meetings after Fred Trump die. They would hand out checks. You know, Fred Trump's buildings were very profitable and they would meet every few months to get an update on the status of the empire and to get a check. And then in two thousand and three at one of these meetings, Donald Trump announced that it was time to sell and quickly assembled a private sale to develop her in New York for almost all of it, and it was sold, you know, give or take a few buildings in one. Sale for just under eight hundred million dollars. So so the the the buildings that were so we'll those buildings Fred Trump had snow owned at the time of his death. Oh, they're awesome. Clued. All the buildings that had been transferred from Fred Trump to the children. The included, both the buildings that had been transferred on the ones that he owned it was it was pretty much his all empire and it sold. You know, the buildings that sold in two thousand four or to a New York developer Schroen and the price tag was just over seven hundred million dollars. And what's interesting about that is we learned through the documents that we went through that sale price was was roughly just under two hundred million dollars than what the banks would value at out, you know, in the months after the sale. So it's it's incredible to see that that empire was sold for for much less than they could've got for it very quietly and for much less. So it wasn't like the deal of the century that Donald Trump made. It definitely wasn't. So if the Trump family was involved with tax fraud and tax evasion schemes, how did they get all of this past the IRS. You know the first of all, the actually didn't completely get away with that. So it's true that the IRS actually did perform some audits on some of the tax returns that we described in the story. And in fact, the IRS auditors did push back some and especially on the low valuations. They have placed on buildings and made the Trump's pay a few million more bucks on this return and a few million more bucks on that return. But the way it really works in this world is you have, you know, you've got an agency that is pretty overmatched overworked an auditor who can walk into a session and can extract a few million dollars. That's a really good day's work for that auditor. But in the meantime, the families who you know, wealthy families who hire the most expensive legal and accounting help in who engage in these very sophisticated maneuvers. To avoid or a taxes. They're playing a much bigger game and they might be more than happy to pay a couple million dollars more at the request of an honor. They're looking at the fact that for a couple of million dollars more. Meanwhile, they're walking away avoiding hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes because of simply that the mismatch between the resources of the IRS which has been hit very hard by budget cuts that especially hit the people who are looking at gift and estate tax returns. Suzanne, I'm going to ask you to choose either the art of the deal, the art of the comeback or the apprentice and tell us what was actually going on in Donald Trump's financial life when these books or the show based on all his fabulous accomplishments in deals. When public. I'm thinking which one did choose. Okay. What are you thinking David. Comeback, go for it. Oh, well. So he publishes the art of the comeback in nineteen Ninety-seven and it's this story of his sort of, you know, pulling himself up out of the mock of his casino claps and through his grit and determination and Wiley negotiating skills getting himself back on his feet well within a few weeks of the publication of this book. So happens to coincide with the time when the actually took possession of one quarter of his father's real estate empire through one of these very elaborate tax schemes that we describe in the story. So this moment when he's boasting about, you know, his daring do of cutting himself off the mat. It actually coincides perfectly with the moment when he's just taken possession of twenty five percent of this enormous real estate empire and somehow some way. Not a word of that made its way into the book the art of the comeback. I'm also thinking of immediately the the apprentice in the opening scene of the apprentice in the song money, money, money, money that happened in two thousand and four, right is the sale had gone through the hundreds of millions of dollars that they had gotten from Fred Trump. And yet when you watch that opening scene, it's all Donald Trump Donald Trump's plane as there that the gold tower in midtown Manhattan when in fact it was all the opening scene that Fred Trump built and paid for. I'm wondering how you feel knowing that you have just totally punctured the myth of how Donald Trump made his money and what he did with his money and his great negotiating making abilities. And so many people still believe the myth and Donald Trump is still putting forward the meth. It's interesting when I think about that. I think you have to sort of go back to that idea that you know the lie repeated over and over and pass down into history becomes fact. And I think that we've reset that. I think it's going to take time for this to to move into the bloodstream of America, but I think that we've taken, I think a good for stop in and resetting exactly the origins of Donald Trump's wealth. But I do think it's going to take time, and I think there's some people who are always going to believe what they wanna believe. But I think the the power of the story is, you know, I think the whole careful we were and how documented it was and the times decision to put so many of those documents up. I think it's really hard to refute the story. It's hard to refute because it's absolutely true in the documents. Are there. And and a lot of them are the source documents of the Trump family themselves. But I think it will take time for this to sort of, you know, people for people to digest it, and and but I think it's going to happen. So you spent a lot of time in the past year and a half in a in a separate room in the New York Times. Those basically sealed off to everybody except the three reporters working on this story and all the documents that you drew from that you got access to were locked up in this room who cleaned it who was allowed to. Lina. We, we did not have a cleaner. I admit, I haven't told anybody this. I did come in one day with a with a little vacuum. And and. But we, yeah, it was just the three of us for a year with. Yeah, that's a pretty messy. Look a little ripen there. Yeah, phobic to, I'd imagine did doesn't people know why you were locked up in this room. A few people knew our editors new, but I think there was a lot of sort of mystery mystery surrounding it. We kind of kept to ourselves and yeah, it was. It was difficult, everybody key. You know, the people keep asking you what you're up to, and but we we tried to keep a lid on it as best we could. Well, thank you for your reporting and thank you for telling us about it, Susan, Craig, David, Barstow. Thank you so much. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you, Suzanne, Craig.

His new album, desperate man debuted at the top of billboards country charts. But this new album is a departure from the hits he had before, perhaps as a result of a couple of life changing experiences rock critic, Ken Tucker has a review own to me bad. Nobody.

Atas a church is a singer songwriter with a rock and roll sensibility, which means in the twenty first century, he's a country artist because that's where his kind of Qatar-based confessional ISM can thrive on one of his new songs.

Recently, churches world became less solid. Last October church performed at the Las Vegas country music festival that became the site of the worst mass shooting in American history. In response, he wrote a song of survivor guilt called why not me that he did not include on this new album perhaps to avoid the appearance of somehow profiting from tragedy a few months before the Vegas shooting church had undergone emergency surgery for a near fatal blood clot. This last fact was revealed in a Rolling Stone interview earlier this year in which among many other things, church asserted a very mild suggestion that some sort of gun control legislation might be useful, and he was immediately hit with a strong social media backlash.

How Real Do You Want God To Be?

"The. Following, program is sponsored by the National Prayer Chambal. Sage. So. We, never who? Speak. Fees. Alyssa. We brave wars. Stock. Shine his. the said. Sermon! Law? Now. Welcome to Pilgrim's progress. I'm Ray Greenlee. In the National Per Chapel I sat this morning with the Lord and great sorrow. Over what's happening in America? I know that July. Four is just around the door. And I know there will be great agitation. Demonstration's protests. Violence. In America. Because we are. A divided people. We, no longer believe in the same values. We no longer believe in the judeo-christian ethic. Some of US do and some don't. Some, one fundament fundamentally change America. I want to change America. I want us to go back. To this foundation principles. that. Have made America. The Nation we are today. But we have. Allowed the darkness to come in and almost totally destroy this nation. I WanNa talk with you today. About a very serious question. And I will follow it up tomorrow. With another broadcast, I'm not going to go into anything sensational today. I WanNa talk to you about. One, question! How Real is God to you in? How real do you want him to be? How do you how how real do you want God to be to you? I've come to the conclusion that. I want to be as close to God. I want to be as close to Jesus. As it is humanly possible to be. I WANNA. Go back with you in time. I have shared this story before, but I'm going to share it with much detail today. Because, it was a fundamental turning point for me. In my understanding of how close! And how real! I want God to be in my life. The year was nineteen ninety. My wife, my late wife Jan.. And I had moved. Out of Washington DC. To the fastest growing place at that point in America. It was Moreno Valley California. I had been pressed by. Very close friends. To leave Washington DC. Shake the dust from my feet. and Go to a place where we could prosper in ministry. One friend had a pledge of one year salary. For the new church startup. Another friend had pledged. A large sum of money for the actual opening of the church. For the office rental. For the other supplies necessary. And so without much prayer. Without. Hearing from God. We said were out of Washington DC were done here. We don't want to be here anymore. Now, this was after many years of my pasturing in the Washington Metro area. So, we moved with the moving van. No A, U haul truck to be exact. Towing a car behind. We transitioned. To Moreno Valley California. We found a beautiful house we rented it. And we prepared. To open a brand new church. But within two weeks of arriving and having unpacked everything. When the first check was supposed to arrive. For my first month's salary of that year donated. It did not arrive. And! I received a phone call. From the family saying that they had had. A blow up in their marriage. And they'd had some difficulty in their business. And, they would be unable to fulfil their commitment. Then received another. Call from the family who had pledged a large sum of money. And they said we're sorry. The Lord is told us were not allowed to donate this money to you. I was heartbroken. and. We said we'd better get jobs. So we immediately began searching for. Positions, I'm not going to share a lot of that story, but it became very obvious very quickly. That we were going to run out of money. We took. The last money we had on a credit card and invested it. In a business. And no sooner had we done that. Then the company closed. After discovering that the CEO had been embezzling funds. And that the business was a scam. We were without. Very much resource. We did not have the money to move back to Washington DC and besides we didn't want to do that. And, so God began to put us. In the all press. Now. The American church is going to be placed in the olive press. That's what shaping right now. Let be let me be even more clear. You personally and your family. If you have not already been in the all of press are going to go there very quickly. The Lord cannot bring forth what he desires to bring forth in your life. Without putting you in that olive press. We're going to have that. Very soon. That's part of what the shutdown is all about of businesses. It's part of what the Closing of the Church's has been. And so. We borrowed money from friends and family. We had yet good credit, and so we opened additional credit cards. And finally after we maxed out the credit cards some months into this journey. We could not borrow any more money. We were broke. L. Part of what happened. Is that I began to understand. That God was calling me to the prayer closet. Now when God had brought. My Wife to me. I'd been praying for a wife for about a year. I'd been praying for several hours a day. I'd set aside from ten to eleven every day to pray, but that time had grown. Into five six even seven hours a day of prayer. But now it was different. We were becoming desperate. There was one bedroom in this home. That had no furniture in it. And so I began praying in that room, making it my prayer closet. And I would lay on the floor. With a Bible in front of me. And I would pray the scriptures. And as time went by, my prayers became more deaths per day by day. Finally. We ran out of all food. We even used the ketchup for soup. The condiments we ate. We were at the bottom. The. Tension level was incredible. I was extremely concerned. About my wife. I tried to convince her to take. The tiny little bit we had remaining. And make a phone call to her parents. And ask them to rescue her and. Help her get to their home. Day After Day as i. read the Scriptures and I prayed. From eight in the morning until five six at night. Reading the promises of God. Mark, eleven twenty, three and twenty four. And many other similar promises. day-by-day. Hungry. I cried out to the Lord and wept before him. My wife refused to leave. Saying I will do whatever you do. I am with you. And I finally began to recognize that what I was doing was. Waiting upon God. That I had no human means of deliverance. I had no human means. To find my way out of this desperate trap we were in. There was a repo order on our car. So, we could not use it, but there was very little gas in the tank anyway. We weren't a desperate place. We were going to be victim from the house. The utilities were all at the point of being off. What I want you to hear is at. The walls began to close in on me. And I began to be desperately pinched. My mental state. Was One of desperation. Of Agony. Of loud weeping before the Lord. Pleading for His grace and His mercy. A new God was real. But. Could I say something about? Who I was! In the hope that some of you will recognize who you are. I had up to that point. Basically succeeded. In my ministry. In some very large congregations megachurches. I had mainly succeeded by my skill in preaching. Had succeeded. With my ability to plan. And execute programs. I had succeeded by being personally able. To energize people. End To draw people. To few gifts of charisma. I had been able to. To be very successful. But it was human spirit. It wasn't God's spirit. And I knew. I had nothing left. To save myself with. And I finally said. Okay vote. When Elijah came to this point. He went into the desert a day's journey. And he laid down under a broom tree. And a few had not come and rescued him. He would have died there. Now I was not suicidal. I had never been suicidal. But I'd come to a place where I was saying. Lord! I'm going to come to you in the desert. And if I die. If you don't rescue me. I will die. I came to that conclusion that morning. I was broken. The. I was humbled. Because for the first time in my life. I had no deliverance and I could not deliver myself. And so. I prepared my heart. To that morning. Go to the desert. I was weeping uncontrollably, not just trickles of tears I was wailing before God. And my precious wife came to me and she said. You need to come and get a bath. And See if that will comfort your heart. And then get dressed. Then, we'll pray. In my heart, I said No. WE WON'T DO THAT I'm going to go get a bath. And I'm going to go out in the desert, and either God will answer me or I will die. So my wife. Literally helped me. Get to the bathtub. Get my clothes off. Get in the bath. She ran a a bath for me. And there was a sliding frosted glass that shut the bath in and I closed that. That door. And suddenly out of the depths of my soul. I began to shout at the top of my lungs. Oh. God. I'm going to die. I'm going to die. And it was one of those terrifying an awesome times. When a window opened. From eternity. And God spoke to me, and it seemed to me. He spoke even as I'm speaking with you. And he said to me. Good. I've been waiting for you to die. And all of the pent up feeling, and all of the bitterness, all of the anger just rose up in my heart. And I! Shouted at God and I said. How can you say that to me? Look what I have been through. Look what I have done for you. I am at the end. I can't live any longer. Very quietly. He said to me. You were bought at a price. You are not your own. and Oh. Those words. Fell upon me like A. Ten ton truck. I was utterly crushed. Devastated. And I back right down from my anger. I knew he was right. I knew he was right I did not belong to me. I had been bought by Jesus. And I said to him. What do you want me to do? and. He answered, and he said to me. Will you receive from my hand? Only that which I give you. Will you receive from my hand? Only that which I choose to give you. And I answered yes. And then I could hear. That he was turning. I could hear God moving. He was turning and he was going to leave and I didn't want him to leave and I said to him. Is there anything else you want me to do. He said yes. Turn the television off. And he was gone. Now in the Old Testament. If you read carefully the stories. Like of Abraham. God came to his ten. Jesus reincarnate came to his stint with two angels. They even eight together. But then the Lord left him. That happened on several occasions, the Lord would come and speak, and then he would leave him. Certainly that happened with Noah It happened with both. Isaac Jacob. It happened. With Moses. God was up on top of the mountain. Moses was called the come up in meet with God, and then Moses would leave the presence of God, and he would come down to the people. And, then finally they established a tabernacle. God outlined what that Tabernacle should look like. That Tabernacle. Held the presence of God the should kind of glory of God was in that Tabernacle over the Ark of the Covenant over the mercy. seat. God was leaving. With a command. Stop Watching television? Would I'd been doing his. I'd been. I just purchased a large screen Sony TV. While, we still had money before we ran out. And I had been watching. I'd come out of the per closet. When we had food, I would eat and then I would sit down on from the television for several hours. Sometimes into the wee hours of the night. To Save my heart. To just be oblige out. To block the pain. He said stop watching the television. So I found myself going into the living room when I finished praying at five or six and sitting in front of the television, but not turning it on. And there was such an ache in my heart and such A. Broken in my heart. I had no idea how is going to survive. I was dying. I was finished. I prayed and I said Lord. I'm dying. In if you don't deliver me I will not be delivered. I will receive from your hand only that what you give me. Now I'm going to tell you the miracles that took place, but before I do I. WanNa come back and say to you. I no longer am willing. That the Holy Spirit or that God should come to me. And speak to me. And then leave me. I'm in the new covenant, not the old. and. The New Covenant Is Different Than The old covenant. That's why I opened this broadcast with the question. How real do you want God to be to you? I want God to be so real in my heart, and in my life that he never leaves me. That, he's always dwelling in me and I dwelling in him. I want to be as close to God as a man can be. So Jan and I. We're sitting in the living room. was, that, nine. I not been able to talk basically all day. I said to her. Did you hear me? Yelling at the top of my voice God. Did you hear me screaming out and crying? And she said no ray I didn't hear anything. It was absolutely silent. I said what. She said yes. You close the door and I didn't hear anything. Else I was very concerned. I said. Did you hear God? Speak to me? She said No. I didn't hear a thing. So I told her what God had said. We held each other and wept. And she said Ray I accept. I will only receive from the hand of God what he chooses to give me. I will not receive anything else. And she began to pray like that and she began to say Lord. My life is a blank check. I put it in your hand. Spend me any way you choose to spend May. Mirrors? I made the same ow with her. That is a couple. We would only receive from the hand of God. would. He chose to give us. At the moment, there was a knock on the door. We went to the door. And there was a man there. He said. Do you all need groceries? We said Oh. Yes, indeed we do. He said we'll help my come out to the car. We carried into the House sixteen bags of groceries. and Oh did we have a feast that night? We celebrated that night. The. Next Day, there was a knock on the door. And there was a another man that I had met. At the Palm Springs Mall. He was a Christian man. He said to me pastor. Would you come with me I? Need you to go visit with me with an attorney. I said I don't need an attorney. He said I know but Jesus said I was to take you. I said okay so I got in the car and I rode with him. Was a Christian attorney. We sat down in his office and there was some small talks Chitchat back and forth, and finally with a smile the attorney turned to me and said pastor. What can I do for you? I said. I don't have any idea I. Don't know why I'm here. GotTa look on his face a smile and he said pastor. You need money. I said absolutely I need money. He got up and he went to a safe and opened it, and he brought back a briefcase. And he opened began to show me little baggies with. Precious stones in gems. SAPPHIRES in. All kinds of precious stones. He said I invested in this eleven years ago. I'd like to liquidate them, but I have not been able to. I'll give you. Fifteen percent of everything you can sell. I said. I don't know anything about jams I. Don't know one jim from. It doesn't matter. They're all in baggies. Here's a price list. I'll give you whatever you sell fifteen percent. Shrugged I, said okay. I walked out of his office with two hundred and fifty thousand dollars with precious stones with a handshake. I brought it home. I showed my wife. She was stunned. She said how are we going to sell them? I said I. Don't have any idea she said I do. Let's wait until the repo man goes, and we've got enough gas in the tank. Let's just. Pray and ask Jesus to guide. US and we'll go wherever he directs us. I sit okay. So, we waited for the repo man to go take a break. And we got in the car and just drove saying Lord. You tell us where to turn. When determine where to go. He took us to bar Sto California out in the desert. And as we approached Bar Sto. Outside of town, a large encampment with white tints shelters. And a big sign saying gem sale. Those are common in southern California. So we drove in. And we took the briefcase and we went to the largest tent. And we said. We have some gems for sale. Would you be interested in looking at them? And he immediately said absolutely. I'd like to see what you have. He said. Come back here when we close tonight at five. And I'll look them over. Have a motorhome is showed us where, and he said just come on by and. I'll take a look at. So we carried that briefcase. fearfully. All Day. That evening. We went to his motor home and he had a table. And we laid out on that table. The gems and he began going through them. Choosing certain ones that he wanted. When he was all finished. He purchased just over fifty thousand dollars worth of precious stones. And pay US in cash. We drove home rejoicing. We took the money the next day and the gems. Back. To the attorney. We gave him his briefcase. And, he gave us fifteen percent of just over fifty thousand dollars. Now he also pulled out of his briefcase. Seventeen CARAT SAPPHIRE. With several other large stones, and he said what you take. These two leads jewelry store in Palm Springs. And put them on consignment and I'll give you fifteen percent of that as well. So. We did that and. The owner of Leeds, jewelry. Store and Palm Springs called the attorney and made arrangements. And we waited on God. and. We prayed. And as I was praying, he said to me quietly my spirit. Go back now to Washington DC you're not finish there. And I said Lord. I've done Washington. I don't WANNA go back. Jen will never go back. So I went and spoke with Jan.. And she said. Ray I would have to have a very direct word from God. Now please understand. We were very immature and Christ. We were just learning how to walk and intimacy with Jesus. Some of you already know how to walk an intimacy with Jesus. You know. God is real. And you want him to be totally in charge of your life, but most of you. have no clue how to be intimate with God. That's part of why I'm telling the story. I said Jan.. Let's pray. So we got on our knees, and she said Ray I have to have two signs. One property has to be given Washington. On which we can build a new church. And secondly, we have to get a call from the manager of a radio station. In DC that you know asking us to do a program for him free of charge. On the air. I said Okay I. Don't like that it won't happen in glad moves. So we begin to pray, and as we're on our knees, the phone rings. and. It's the owner of a large piece of property in Washington, and he said. Rate if you'll come back. And Open A church in Washington. L. Donate this property for the new church. Will. That was a significant gift a large gift. Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth. As. We went back to prayer. The phone rang. Again. And it was the manager of the radio station. Thirteen ten am. Saying Ray. Would you come back and host? A community show for us. I said yes. We're on our way. The only problem was we didn't have any money. To rent the u-haul truck at that point. A u-haul truck running between California and Washington DC was just over three thousand dollars. We had used all of the money we had received from the gyms. To pay all of the back debts. And we prayed, said Lord. We cannot leave California if we leave a debt unpaid. Everything has to be paid. We knew we could not pay BACK THE CREDIT CARD DEBT! But we laid it all on the table before the Lord and we repented for not believing in him. For providing for ourselves. We repented over that debt. And, the Lord was very clear with us. Forgive you, but never go in debt again. And I have not. And we did not. Some, people have said to me pastor. You know you could buy a new car on time, and you could ask the Lord to give you the money each month to pay the bill. I, said No. I will not walk that way before God. I will receive only from the hand of God what he chooses to give me. I will not test the Lord by saying. I know you'll give me the money, so thank you for the wonderful ride. Are you kidding me? You can't walked away with Jesus. I can't. So we packed the house to be ready to go, we knew we were coming back to Washington and we packed the house. And we waited. Each day praying. Having no idea where the money would come from the. And then one morning. Like every other morning. The phone rang. The gyms that we had put on consignment. Had all been sold. We went to meet the dealer who had? Then responsible for the consignment. And we were paid. With that money we rented a U haul truck. We loaded it. My dear brother dawn helped me load it. And his son Tim. We hooked the car up on a trailer. and. We headed back to Washington DC. No we thought we were coming back to Washington DC to immediately open a church. But of course when we got back, all of the money that we receive from the gems was gone. And we stayed a short time with my daughter. And her husband. Praying and waiting on God, open the way for us. We ended up being five years without a home living with A. A wonderful couple that were not Christians. That's a whole nother story. But during those, Years five years with them in two years. On our own. Without Public Ministry. We read Genesis to revelation genesis to revelation genesis to revelation time after time I stopped counting when I past fifty. God made us. God changed us. God squeezed us. In the all press. We learned the ways of God. have to confess that even after all Jesus did for me. I still found myself. With my charisma. And my ability with language. To convince money to to come to convince people to give. To bring people to Church. To, institute, Programs. To find the I came to an utter end of myself. I won't tell how that happened today. But I finally came to an utter and broken end of me. And when I came to that place. The Lord has come in and taken possession of me. And he knew longer leaves me. He is mine. And I am this. I don't spend any money without his direction. I come here and tell you exactly how much is owed. And I wait upon the Lord. For him to move in your heart to bring that money. And I WANNA. Tell you today. That last night. We were still two hundred dollars short. Several people gave. Contributions yesterday. The person who? Had made a commitment for a large amount, called me and or text me and said. How much are you short? I told him exactly where we're at. And he said I will put a check in the mail this morning. For the amount I pledged. I rejoice in. Last night. A brother from out of state text me and said how much you short. I text him back and I said. We're two hundred dollars short. He texts me early this morning and he said. It's absolutely essential pastor that you stay on the radio and preach. I will send the amount necessary to cover the last portion. Of the bill for June. I thanked him. I rejoice in the mercy and kindness of Jesus. But I want to tell you how real this is to me and please. You may not understand, but I'm going to try to say to you. I don't try to win anyone as a friend. I don't try. To win any one to come to church. I. Don't try even to win anyone to Jesus Christ. I no longer use any human spirit power to try to gain what I want or what I think I need. I am totally dependent upon Jesus. For Life. For Breath For whatever he chooses to give me. That is all I want. No let me be very straight with you. Trying, to win from people their allegiance. Trying to win from people financial resources. Trying to convince people of the necessity of what you want to accomplish. Takes a great deal of energy and time. And calculation. I will no longer engage in any of that and I. no longer do in my life. I know I could have come and in my human energy. And my ability to convince I could've moved to the FM side of the dial already. But I refuse to do that. I'm not going to run a campaign to try to convince people to give large sums of money to put us on the FM dial. I only want what Jesus wants if he doesn't want me on the radio, I don't WanNa be on. What is most precious to me in my life? Is that I be connected with Jesus in such a manner that I never leave him and he never leaves me. World holds nothing for me anymore. I want sinners to come to Jesus because he wants them to come to him. I want sinners to be convicted by the presence of the Holy Spirit as I speak what he puts in my mouth to speak. I WANNA speak words of rebuke and comfort, as he puts words of rebuke and comfort in my mouth to speak to you and to those I minister to day-by-day. I don't have an agenda Oh I like this person, and so I'm going to spend time and energy trying to build a relationship with them or I like this person or don't like that person I don't walk that way before God anymore. The friends I have I have because God called them to me and said these are the people who will walk with you in the journey. I've called you on. Sometimes people walk away. And that's okay with me. If that's what Jesus wants. I want them gone out of my life. I want friendships. I want dedication. I want financial resources. Only as directed by the Holy Spirit. Sunday I lead a small group of people in my home. I've invited you to come that invitations stands, but I only want you to come. If the Holy Spirit draws you because there won't be any human magnetism here, there won't be any. Manipulation here there won't be any control here. We. Are People gathered in the name of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit? It doesn't matter to me whether we're small or large. I only want revival. In the hearts that Jesus comes. To dwell in. I WANNA. Read this for you in the last minutes we have. John Fifteen. I am the true vine. and. My father is the Gardner. He cuts off every branch in me. That bears fruit while every branch that does bear fruit. He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You were already clean. Because of the word I've spoken to you. Remain in me. Remain in me and I will remain in you. Do Catch. Jesus once you in him and he wants to be in you. He wants total intimacy with you. He wants to be so real to you that the world begins to fade out of your sight, and you no longer are interested in the Chitchat the worldliness in the foolishness. He wants you to be in him. And he wants to be in you. Know Branch can bear fruit by itself must remain in the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me? Oh, you can bear fruit out of the human spirit out of flesh, but it will not last the only fruit that remains is that which is born of the spirit in your heart, and in your life. He says I am the vine. You are the branches if a man remains in me and I in, he will bear much fruit. Have! You ever heard an apple tree grunting out fruit. Of, course not. The fruit is produced naturally. Has the SAP rises. And feeds the branches. And feed the apples. That's how the Gospel works. If anyone does not remain in me. He's like a branch. The dist thrown away and withers. Such branches are picked up and thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me, and my words remain in you ask whatever you wish, it will be given you. This is to my father's glory that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. He wants us to ask for things in his spirit, not in our flesh. Will Continue this broadcast tomorrow.

Episode 16: Produce

"Here's a preview of what we are producing for. I see what you did. That was a good one nice for this episode of inside Trader Joe's from field to four. I'm all things produce. I'm thinking about berries and stone fruits. What else is big in the summertime fresh fix dear? Everybody eats Shishido peppers. They're great. What I've learned is? Don't look at the weather out before you go to bed. You'll sleep from the trader Joe's mothership in Monrovia California. Let's go oh inside trader. Joe's I'm Tara Miller the director of words and phrases and clauses and I'm Matt Islam the Marketing Product Guy. This is our first ever episode about produce at Traderjoes. We didn't even have a produce department when trader Joe's was born then from humble beginnings. We've grown oh I see what you did there and we're very proud of our citrus trysts impairs and apples and squash other fruits and our vegetables or even more popular they all taste great which is important. We know that but there's a lot you may not know about the produce you find a trader. Joe's Hi I'm Jack and under category manager for produce for trader. Joe's basically I'm all things produce the decisions we make. How do we keep it fresh? We get better quality and we were thinking about going to our Boston Office to speak with Jack and that's where he's based ace but we were able to get him to come back and visit us here at the mothership instead welcome back. Jack always agreed to come here for the first time. I didn't have to use G._P._S. to get to the office from the Hotel Nice. How long have you worked in the produce business? I got a job at a local supermarket sixteen years old and one of my first jobs when they gave me was stocking the baby food and you know baby food way back when they come knows all those little gerber baby jaws and I wasn't very good at it. 'cause you'd reach you. Pull them out. You drop it on the floor and it would break well. Luckily for me. The baby food sexual is right next to the produce section. Protozoan is the took pity on me took a liking to me one of the other and he said come on over you can work with Wpro News crew. You're all produce the category manager. How long really have you been at the front of the produce piece the less to twenty eight years or so give or take we need to go then in now so something from then as compared to something now a big difference? What was it like twenty eight years ago? What is it like now? No bag salads didn't exist. We had to wash lettuce. Imagine the struggle that's right. It was real in these little ten degrees do think more people league more of those leafy Greens now because Oh yes way more I mean let's face it years ago. If you didn't like iceberg lettuce you pretty much out of luck. People want produce a chase good. When we first started it was mostly? What's shipped well? What didn't go bad quickly? We also those cucumbers coveting Greece. It'll because that we we could hold them in the back room. A long time and now people want produces fresh. There's a product idea. We're not GONNA pursue. Cucumbers covered in grease. It's just not GonNa do that. The law would eat so by day is finding that truck getting that delivery there on time picking get fresh. <hes> you know whether impacts produce unfortunately sometimes positively sometimes negatively lots of times. You'll get a call from the strawberry vendors saying Oh my God we can't get into fields. It's raining can't pick strawberries when it's raining if you packed them when they're wet they tend to Bruce. Cruise and the container go bed so lots of times we have to wait until the field dries out so that could be the difference between going into a trader Joe's on Thursday and finding strawberries or not finding strawberries because it rained on Monday in the strawberry field. What I've learned is don't look at the weather the APP before you go to bed? You'll sleep some thinking about the map. I'm picturing this in my head. All the stuff winds up in our stores which happened to be in the U._S.. But you're looking outside of that. We saw is product from around the world. Wherever we think we can get the very best has quality at the time of the year? If it's summer down south it's winter maybe up here to get grapes to US stores. Every day fifty two weeks a year they come from Chile that come from Peru they come from Argentina in the wintertime Mexico California in the summertime <music>. I'm customers have come accustomed to having items in the stores year round. You can't get a local Nanna Bananas. Don't grow in the United States right so if you want a banana you have to find it somewhere else and bring it here. How do we know where are those products are coming from? Every Roddick gets delivered twelve warehouses. Every day has has people work the finding where it came from. We don't buy from terminal markets where we don't know where that products come from. What's the terminal market? It sounds like the end of the line nine. You're right is when when supplies don't have a home for their for their goods it goes to the terminal market. There's a big one in New York. There's one there's a big. One in Boston is a big one in L._A.. And we don't buy from them because again. We lose control over where it's been where it's been harvested. I was said we're loyal to a supply we pay a fair price for the product we become very desired account and we can leverage that into getting things that we want like social responsibility. It's a big problem in the in the produce industry the easy solutions but you WanNa make sure that you're dealing with companies that treat their workers feel. I love discovering new things in the produce case even new varieties of apples <music>. I think honey Chris was the one that really set everybody. Everybody excited very difficult. Apple to grow very expensive to grow gives you pool yields and you heard in the industry you want me to plant these. Am I gonNa Make GonNa make any money on these and boy. That's a wonderful that's wonderful apple. It's now a number one selling F it gave grows confidence quote and find new varieties ventured into this new era where patenting holding a patent for a type of produce is becoming really important. These these varieties are now controlled like intellectual property like supply for OPALS. We sell a lot of Opel apples. It's delicious apple. Seattle Looks Looks Nice. Forget very difficult to grow and they have an exclusive on so what supplies the looking to do is saying. Hey I've got something really special and you can you can get it from me. I think it encourages companies to try new items all right Jack. Let's see how will you know your apples. Okay this little game. We like to call. How do you like them? Apples Jack was just made that up all right so I'm going to say a characteristic and you're gonNa tell me which Apple Boca fits that characteristic okay. Let's start with crunchy. That's easy honey crisp hundred yes. I agree I'm with you. That's my favorite apple. Okay sweet who is a traditional. One Fuji's very sweet been around long time but there's a new variety Kikuchi said very very sweet really popular. How do you spell that K? I K you if I you say kids love them. You're going to say Galas Mulu. The road smaller sized not too sweet to pretty good crunch tart. Granny Smith Yellow s an Opel apple right something really red. Red But not red delicious that would be N._B._A.. Apple Green the grannies you real classic Green. Sometimes they get a little blush on them certain times of the year but blushing granny's all different episodes different episodes Jack. You're kind of mentioning off Mike that you get a lot of feedback from stores who are hearing from customers wondering why we don't sell things by the pound and wondering if they're getting a good deal paying on an individual basis basis. I think a lot of customers question why the industry standard is by the pound. It's mostly really to get them to buy more or we. We really feel it's best to be up front with our customers and let them know what they're paying for product right off the bat. I use the example. We'll have a customer who is thought we were charging too much for honey. Crisp apples is much more reasonable than our competitors but editor sold by the pound in it sounded cheat but boy when you got four apples. You bought a bag of four honey. Kris van was that apple is going to cost almost eight dollars a bag of four apples whereas would cost much less than that and that's something we're very proud of. Obviously we sell a huge amount of produce in our stores. People people keep coming back so we hear things like wow what great values what a great selection but occasionally we hear your produce sucks. What do we do as a company to manage quality control? It starts honestly with picking. We can supply base. That's step one step two. Is You have a good quality assurance team in the warehouse or they look at product is good what I buy. That's a great question. What I what I buy this? We have some great great store people. They really want to do the right thing and one of the things we try to do. Everybody gets a delivery every day. That's that's almost unheard of in the industry is that maybe in some ways a result of just the physical difference I think of a normal grocery restore almost functioning like a little warehouse in the back distribution efficiency. I used to cringe in gas life when I hear that I still cringe now. It's not a good thing and you're right trader. Joe's either by accident or near wisdom you mix it back rooms. Really small cool is really small now. We just don't have room to hold it. It's fresh product picked fresh ship fresh and there's a whole host of things that can go bad some <hes>. Go wrong on you. It's the weather it's the time of year ear. It's how that soil is functioning. It's the transportation and how hot it is. The day that someone is driving down that highway with us produce and that's what we live with every day when you think about all of those pieces that Jack and his team go through every single day to make sure the quality of the produce in our stores stays consistently high. It's pretty amazing to me. Can we talk about the packaging a little bit. We made an announcement at the beginning of the year about changes. We were making too packaging throughout the store and I know that a big piece of <hes> of that work is happening happening in the produce department. We have lots of packaging produce in in the packaging we have. How can it be more environmentally friendly first steps? Was We looked at. Can we sell more products. And why do we sell something packaged. You'll see it in especially in a potato and onion section in our apples we we have more loose apples than we did before we have more loose potatoes and onions. A good example is funny. The things you find we had gal for years. Eight years we sold them in this little pouch and I thought why do we do that probably because that's the way we've always done so what we did was I looked and said what can we just sell a Clova golic loose and what we really found was wow we added a a lot of cost. The cost of getting those little sleaze cost little head of Khad cost putting too little close a guy like in those sleaze added a lot to our cost so now you can go into trader Joe's and you can get a big Clova golic forty nine cents. somethings we need repackaging on. It's hard to sell lose blueberries so we right now. We're testing in some of us. Those two things one is the fiber till was a plastic over out again at some plastic but it's a lot less plastic. You say fiber Labor till describe that what is it but it looks like it's biodegradable composed able and another one is we have a thin plastic more recyclable container with plastic over. It seems Jack that your work in sustainability in ability is is really paying off. We had a goal to eliminate a million pounds of plastic from our stores over this year and we've surpassed that we are on track to eliminate four a million pounds of plastic from our stores in two thousand nine hundred and two and a half million pounds of that plastic has come directly out of the produce section. Po Cool is okay you get to choose one one fruit one vegetable the only things you'll get to have on the desert island. What are they going to be? The visual one is easy. This isn't new item for us but time <hes> this episode comes out. I hope it's going to be in the stores and that's baby cauliflower his a really look like cauliflower this little stock with this feathery top and it has a wonderful flavor. I'm pretty boring when it comes to my fruit but I like my blueberries we do a great job with organic blueberries two pounds every summer. It's like a single engle served pack for the drive home. We have a grow that comes to us. We do it as an opportunity okay. I think we have a jargon alert opportunity here Matt for Opportunity by Grocery Retail. Jargon alert opportunity buys is it needs to be an opportunity for our customers. It's an opportunity for everybody. I mean it's an opportunity for that grower and it's an opportunity for customers to find something new and interesting or a ridiculous value. I think anybody growing anything interesting fruits. It's and vegetables just call Jack. We take we take all I love. That company came to US last year to try this new variety of raspberries. They were very proud of terrific opportunity by sold very well while raspberries are really tough to the handle may be among the toughest things to handle. I think that sounds like an easier opportunity than I'm GONNA pick on. Jerusalem artichokes also known as Sun Chokes emphasis on the choke need idea but you know who wants to eat those apparently nobody we did try that okay. I have to admit we did try them think of artichokes with an F. and that's that's that's sort of what they're known as they do. <hes> cause some distress to certain people for sure the growers of Sancho in America we. I don't like you speaking of opportunities. This episode will launch in the height of summer. I'm thinking about berries and stone fruits. What else is big in the summertime fresh fix we carry them only at the height of the season starts in mid to late July and and they're available for about six weeks slice those figs in half top them with just a little bit of crumble blue cheese and drizzle that with honey and just watch them disappear? I'm already getting e mails from customers anxiously awaiting a win win of. The figs coming this year figs are super tricky to get them just right regular supermax had these enormous produce departments and they got to carry everything every day whether it's really good or not they even carry sunshine one of our values here trader. Joe's were a national chain of neighborhood stores. Oh if you WANNA be a neighborhood store you need items from either locally grown from your region and it's a challenge but we've had some pretty good successes. Colorado has a nice little niche. They grew a number of really nice items Adams. We've got some items grown in Texas Oak Rabin one of our Portland Maine store they want main potatoes same thing with Massachusetts and Rhode Island Grown Rhode Island grows great potatoes they do thanks Rhode Island. The things that are very popular in California may not be popular yet in the Mid West but they will be in this by the same token is items on the east coast so we can that we can move to the west coast. Shishido peppers is a classic example of big on the West Coast Keeble and most of the parts of the country haven't heard of why not dear everybody eats Shishido peppers. They're great but be cautious. Not that cautious. They're not that spicy but one out of every ten might just get you. That's true I always get the bags that are all not all hot one. The things that I find really nice about trader Joe's customers. They like to try new things. Thank goodness they come into trickles to see what's new and different in produce is very hard to be different. You know everybody carries strawberries. Everybody carries. He's blueberries so when you find like she'll pepper. It's really a positive thing for our customers and our customers really respond well to that but pretty soon summer will be over. What's great in the fall? The fruits wins Pumpkins one of the other items that really dominates Jason thoughts in the fall who's Brussel sprouts stocks and you can roast that whole stock in your up and you don't even have to remove them and let's talk about winter produce oranges. We have an illusion variety that we buy direct from approach to supply. He has some very old trees is with the illness varieties and naval oranges grocery retail jargon alert heirloom does heirloom mean a non hybrid is older variety. It's from the original variety like the original variety from somewhere in Asia or just in like Bar Sto naval oranges all came from one naturally occurring mutation where they took it and then from these trees original trees. I Love Pears and I'm worried read about pears. I don't think anybody else likes pairs very much. What's up with pairs? It does have a stigma to have. It's it's considered old people's fruit. Thanks helping like Peninsula pays myself. Some patients can be treated with a CALICO basically keeps them from ripening in storage but we also found is ripe banana well when they came other storage we know used chemical traderjoes. There's nothing better in a really truly privilege ripen Pale delicious. The problem is is it's hard to get them. Cauliflower been around forever so it's almost the same ideas. Your peers was. Oh people vegetables but it's not anymore though the all people know something that's that's the real message. Listen kids. Both fruits and vegetables are increasing in popularity vegetables are increasing at a faster rate. We see that at trader Joe's the people want to cook fresh vegetables when I grew up you steam them to death right or boil them forever and and they will keep you added a lot of butter but carrots have been around forever and for years with declining consumption in popularity now they've actually turned. To quote so we have that product the organic carrots of many colors carrots used to come in all kinds of colors and it was the Dutch that really settled on the orange and orange became the acceptable color for carrots everywhere but these old carrots that are purple and red and sort of fuchsia colored and and orange and white. That's how carrots were up until a few hundred years ago the Dudley tell us about organics in our store. This is is one area where we do not mirror national trends we sell way more organic and then an average supermarket but thirty two percent of our offering is is organics. What you're saying is our customers? They want organic in a lot of instances. We've seen where we you carry both conventionally grown product in organic products over time <hes> the conventional just doesn't sell people Baio Gannex more. What about the idea of less than perfect produce? What happens when something is still good but doesn't really look great? We share that that's a trader. Joe's jogging put we basically donated to food banks. Produce is the number one category of food that we donate. That's really proof of the amazing work that the crew was doing doing at every store every day. Take care of that section to take care of the produce and to help figure out a place for other than the trash. You know it's still usable. It's still valuable. We make sure that it gets to someplace where it can be used either a food pantry career food bank type of place. How do you tell when things are right? I mean everything has everything's different right. Unfortunately it is different for every kind of fruit like berries not gonNA ripe. They are what they might as well eat them day. One not going to change things like cantaloupes will get sweeter if you let them ripen with one Mellon will not pineapples tend not to get sweeter bananas. Obviously everybody knows right but they get the suite of they get. Some people like impeaches really soft other people like peaches kind of firm. If you really like a firm peach you might want to try the white varieties peaches they tend to sweeten up. They have less acids so they tend to taste sweeter when the firm if you really WanNa soft peach cake yellow peach it looked comes into bristle reference to we're counting down the top fruits trader Joe's and we don't stop until we get the number one but first here's a long distance dedication. It is dominated by all right number five number five is probably <hes> ahead one pound two pound organic strawberries number for eighteen months bloopers number three. You know something I went back and I just had his own. I mean like like it's probably like in the top three probably another size of Barry's Avocados <hes> number one and number two. We did one point nine million Avocados this week really winding down. Do you have a favorite produce item at trader. Joe's we have a SOBA noodle kit. I'm a big Fan. It's basically a mix of fresh vegetables with some Soba noodles in an sauce where you can actually stir fry it and it's delicious and Jack how about one more new product we can look forward to and produce. We decided to to branch out a little bit and I've got a southwest sweet potato bowl. It's Vegan. It's got some peppers roasted corn black beans because good the guy or if you had a protein you can make really a the main dish nor the site. I'm glad so that I thought you were GONNA say son. Chokes and I wanNA thank you Jack. We appreciate your time. Thank you and I'm actually glad that you moved on from baby food.

What Were Watching: Veronica Mars Mars vs. Mars and Ruskie Business

"Hello and welcome to round. Two of the parenting roundabout podcast. I'm Terry Moro and I'm here with Catherine Echo. Hello usually on this podcast. We talk about parenting issues but once a week Catherine and I like to get together to discuss. Tv movies books and other entertainment topics. Because it's nice to talk about something other than parenting for a change course for quite some time it's just been TV around here and We've been watching zoysia extraordinary playlist and Veronica Mars season one. The Bud Zoe's left us with a sad song last week and so we are now just doubling down on Mars because we want to get to the end of this mystery. What is going on so the first episode? We will talk about this. Week is season one episode fourteen called Mars versus Mars which featured our parks and REC save. Adam Scott is a shaggy-haired cool teacher. Who is GonNa Break Your Heart Veronica? Don't believe in that dude. Anybody got just snapping and doing cool things in history class. He is no good. So what did you think about this episode? Were you suspicious of Mr Rooks throughout or Man All I've ever wanted to do is teach and they're going to take that away from ages. Make your little schoolgirl Hawk flutter. No did you believe that. Did you fight for him? When Keith didn't want didn't want Veronica getting involved or have you watched. Tv show involving teenagers by have in fact watch the TV show involving teenagers before. And I definitely was suspicious and was annoyed at Veronica for you. Know Hashtag believe women not believing now not believing that this could happen and you know both of these episodes will talk about another one later but she was very good at detecting but really bad at the character and and like seon between the lines you know as you said if you've watched TV before you would know that Veronica. So many shows but I particularly think of an episode of my so called life with Roger Reese as the floppy-haired English teacher who left Angelo all kinds of disillusioned and once again with Eric Stoltz floppy-haired drama teacher who actually almost did have something going with a grace. One of the teenage characters on the show. Oh go for the old grouchy teachers. Do not do not fall for the floppy-haired English teachers I had a floppy haired social studies teachers who I don't know if he ever did anything bad but he was not. So maybe it's a here. Maybe it's the hair that I don't trust. Yeah get a get a Trim Adam. Scott you're not really in quarantine I get yourself in trim. Your hair looks ridiculous. It did look at it brings in the girl. Yeah Annika really. She did not show a judgment in this. You know in addition to not believing the other girl which okay you know. They made it so that. Stay flashback to her being obnoxious gossipy in whatever Right to try and in all fairness the other girl was in fact she was lying. It was checking out the one who was involved with the teacher. It was a technicality but but there could theoretically have been otherwise. Yeah and you know just the whole some of the stuff that Veronica. Did you know just like showing up to the Teachers House on a weekend or yes sure? I'll come and have a slice of pizza with you. Like this is a really terrible idea. They make Veronica so sharp so much time that when she's when she acts like teenage like a particularly dim teenage girl. It just seems so false. Not that it's like was this pre pre Lilly's murder Veronica comes out every now and then because I totally buy Lilly's murder Veronica would have made me fall in for this but sharp hardened detective Veronica her. Bsn meter should have been off. Ny also like victim of Sexual Assault Veronica. Exactly yes yes. Nobody believed end. Yeah that that there's big problems with an to then. Of course it makes it. The title of the episode is Mars versus Mars because Ronca in Keith are disagreeing the whole time because Keith is right in front of Kaz wrong So that never fun. We like them to be yes Having their great relationship that we're used to yes and in terms of you know Tradecraft Veronica you have your friend smuggled the file on this girl to you and then you open it up right out in the hallways of the school outer outer area of start reading it renounce must to have that possibly would be good not to be seen with it and also in the greater mystery the little tiny bit that this noted the greater mystery along out of all the dangling threads in this whole situation the one she picks which meds or Dunkin on which has really probably nothing to do with anything other than it's just ex-boyfriend and she's nosy but Things that never get Mitch again. This is the one you're going to go on. That's the one okay. But then she does in the service of that find out that Abel coons is dying which how soon speed that up. Are they giving him medication? For whatever's wrong with him And then she goes in the jail and does the mic drop on him as described it in the Bronx Mars investigations. Podcast which we've been listening to along with the show and he's like Oh like you got me which does not she didn't known about. It really gave her respond. She just took off. I guess I guess but he was like pure unadulterated evil the last time in this time. He's Oh I didn't expect her girl I think he would have a comeback so this was not. This was not a good Veronica episode in any way nope she was credulous. She was pursuing things. Weirdly and she was reengaging with Abel Koontz. Which why why why why? Why would you do that so Yeah and speaking of you you know you mentioned about how she was reading the girls file right out in the middle of everything and she did the same. With Dunkin's mental skirts and dancing was right. Come on friend or RONCA. Who are you what happened to you what they done to you? You are not yourself. What the heck but is this. We've since we watched two episodes sometimes. Getting stuff jumbled. Is this the one where she outlined for Leo? All the things that are messed up about the Lilly Kane case She was asking show. Yeah I think it is. He's back now. I was in the next one because that was the Leo episode where he came to the school and he right. They'll I think I think it was the first one though. I think it was just that he was back in and she had asked him for anything. Iranian done the illustration of with horns which is hilarious moving into that But at any rate in one of these episodes she outlines for him everything in mentions the plus which I have a traffic ticket that says she died three hours which thank goodness. Somebody has finally remembered that because that was a shoe her no mention of it for episode episode. Yeah did she forget it? Did it fall behind a desk somewhere? That Clo- oh my goodness he's pursuing this it. Just I feel like so many of these episodes just mixed up in order and so they just been very ramshackle about whether they followed through on things but I did very much enjoy the whole business of Veronica breaking into. Keith's safe yes. I'm getting sprayed within committing that rock Could so Veronica may be losing her detective skills but Keith's our Charlotte's and him turning up in the mirror behind her while she's trying to hilarious and said she said you're patronizing and he said well. I your patron right. You got to wonder how long he's been waiting for that tonight off right. How long has that been? He's just been just had one year on that room all the lawn waiting for the scream as the right way to go case work Mr Mars I think Mars versus Mars Mars one? Yes Morris. Mars the elder.

One called Russky business which had Veronica pursuing a case of in Russian mail order bride trying to find her groom who she rejected for. Reasons and analysis change down to Neptune via postcard. And you know Keith. Wants her to just take some information. Do Very basic checking and then let her go up. There's nothing but Veronica wants to help her because to love and you know reasons so she keeps pursuing that meanwhile she is also investigating secret admirer. Hey Nice to see you again. We remember you but also like really I mean why is what I don't understand. Why when you have a secret admirer. Part of the fun of it is not knowing who it is right right. So why does she need to do this whole detective case about it? I I did not understand makes. Because they haven't they have minutes to fill tavern. They have to have a certain number of blots. What do you want from them? Following keyed in his insurance case is boring. So let's Load Veronica. Down with work because she has also still investigating the alleged death of Logan's mother and whether she is in fact still alive which there seems to be evidence. Praise as Veronica bounces around through these. Three cases Enlisting Wallace in an unfortunate effort to check. Somebody's cell phone which you knew at really wallace. She's going to be your bff. Anyway you don't have to go look at people's bags but So what a lot going on here? Investigation WISE FOR MS. Which is why they didn't need that. Whole stupid. Secret Admire. They probably didn't you know what I'm okay with that entire stupid plot for Leo Turning up at the dance in a Miami vice out that agree that that that payoff was possibly worth all the ridiculousness that preceded it and also the florist like motorcycle Hippie. Yes that that has to. I doubt was adorable. I loved that guy was the florist. I loved it. There was absolutely no explanation for it. Had to say how did somebody like you get to be just right. The florist this is where the kids over there. Their bouquets in their corsage is and I don't know if I buy Dunkin as the texting a girl I think you're cool and then sending her flowers and stuff but whatever you dad well little more game than that but yeah yeah but Okay and then you know the awkwardness of Veronica. Finding it detecting that to be the case and then feeling sad because she wishes he were still texting her You are cool but you know. Leo's Pretty Cute. I think maybe she's got the best into that room rate but and then with Logan's mom the payoff of that was. I wasn't Elsa goods on this show. Now Alyson Hannigan of as the the terrible sister who are half sister I guess now we've heard her call sister twice. Is this the first? We knew she was a half sister. I believe so yes. There are just making that character up a single. Yeah because for the first twelve episodes there was no such person so yes yes and now tells Hannigan I there so somehow she got her stepmother's maiden name credit card and clothing yeah I mean. She had gone to their house and stolen it right. Yes I mean. How else would she have that? Because I have to cling to my firm assertion last week that she is not in fact did maybe they set this up together that she was like a term to to quash any belief that she might still be on but poor. Logan Man. Crying in Veronica's arms Alana's many intense the showing up at the Dancing your underwear. Not so much but at least it gave the brother and sister cute moment together like right. It got to show her that a long history of her collecting him drunken throwing up on her gray so close family ladies and gentlemen gave her moment of redemption. After how horrible she was at the hotel yes yes dropping even more stories of abusive Logan and we have previously heard so Man Ed kid US break. My heart is a sad mobbing. It was. I mean it was certainly a packed episode. I knew that that alleged Russian bride was not on the up and up. But I did not figure out. I assumed that the two guys tailing Keith. Were for something else. But that all tied up. Yeah except that didn't quite understand why they were tailing him because Ronchi kept saying few was right but why not. Just wait for the response from the woman who came you know who hired him I well. I don't know maybe they figured they would follow him get there. I don't know sometimes you have to let floor. But yeah one wonders but anyway didn't he just come into the office at exactly the right lack second otherwise poor. Tom Cruise would have been a garner. That's right and his cat. Around named Steve. Yes nice work by Wallace to say. We're dog yes. Wallace just might make a good detective after yes and we had chekhov's smiling family trick in the Party House which then recurred. That was kind of fun even though it seems odd that they would have. I thought that that Keith told Veronica to give that address but I guess Veronica came up with that address by herself. Having been to the right they they sort of rehearsed it together. But she must've said Here's an idea that was another thing like Veronica going to that party with meg and then leaving because Logan was still sitting in the hotel waiver. Mother Ha again as we discussed about the previous episode. Veronica has been assaulted at a party. Yes and she's just like okay man. Can you get yourself home? 'cause I gotta go like that to your. That seems unlikely. Yes I mean. It seems like she might have a little trauma to the party. In the first place that should be addressed and then to just leave her friend with her alcohol soaked dress. They're in the Stanley situation. That that made me mad. So Yeah Veronica is like I said bad judgment this this episode and the Black Swan especially about this kind of right. Yeah I agree but You know she had her hands. Full just Tons of work all over the place and then of course at the end she finally finds out who I guess has been calling her all these times in hanging up his her mother at a bar and Bar Sto which she leaves Leo at the Dance. Looking adorable and I mean I would say Halio. WanNa go right. Yeah Right Versto with me and you know bring some no yes. Yes because yes. That's right which we have given me. A backup has not been provided for most of her adventures in the snus but she goes home. You know as they were mentioning on the Bronco Mars Investigations PODCAST IN CRIMPS for hair which is not something that would be. I mean you'd have to take a shower and wash your hair. I guess and changes in stobbs. Glad she didn't turn up looking like whatever that was made dressed her up as the Madonna. I guess yeah. I was relieved that she did change her clothes. But it did sort of take some of the urgency out. I must leave immediately so I can go home and take two hours to get out of this close in this hair and for other close and drive across the desert Alright then her mother says No. You can't be here. They'll hurt you bad guy from Kane software just to be there. Oh no what's going to happen So do you want to lay down money as to whether the next episode picks up from this or is completely something else. I would like to believe that we will pick up. But there's you know a better than even chance that it will be. She'll be sitting in class and somebody never seen before is going to be a problem yep so Mavra inconsistent and yet still enjoyable business so also have dimensioned that this show continues to be a hey. It's that young person young actor I did not really recognized Alyson Hannigan but I did not recognize Zachary ty Bryan from home improvement as cavs. The you know possible secret admirer of May who seemed to have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. And why would you even want to think that that could be your secret? Admira after they mentioned in Veronica Mars investigations that it was him. A kind of seemed like yeah. It could have been but So many recognizable actress popping of these things way before maybe knew who they were right but I was amusing myself by looking up on. Imdb BECAUSE LEO is. How old is Leo supposed to be? I mean it's a little maybe like twenty yeah in actual real life. Kristen Bell is a few months older than Mexican field. Oh they both born in one thousand nine hundred so they were both twenty four when he was playing like twenty and she was playing sixteen. And Jason Doering is actually younger than the both of them. An Alyson Hannigan is six years older than Christabel. So it's fun. It's fun to look birthdates in realize how completely bogus all teenage yes? Tv is this is also the when you play your game of today's birthday. How old is that person you right because you think his. Oh they were a teenager in this show but no actually already so you know. It's it's weird. But they were talking on Veronica Mars investigations as to whether you can in fact have a twenty year old at a high school person at dance and indeed when I was maybe a little bit older than Veronica. I was dating someone he was only so and I don't remember having to fill out paperwork to bring him to the Prom so yeah I know at my kids school just anyone who isn't A student no matter how they are. You have to fill out a form. So that's how they do but he's an officer the points you know he's there to. He's here to make sure that that drunken kids in the get taken on whether sisters so he's fulfilling function it's fine. It's fine never mind that he's kissing the new goal. It's one it's fine they're Well next week we will take in two more episodes of Veronica Mars and see how how far they do or do not move this thing along a we will watch the sixteenth episode which is called Betty and Veronica and the seventeenth episode a which is called cains and abels cames plural. Abel's possessive not. Happy to have anything to do with able again but okay and the canes me naming them either. Yeah so that's going to be at for around two today.

"Ramble so this is a very special episode that we recorded at Vid con two thousand nineteen. We got the whole squad there. We had a room full of. I think it I was like two hundred people packed to the Gills full of awesome people and we only had so many chairs. So many mikes so it's about half the squad at the beginning and the other half at the end and I almost forgot. We have a few cities that still have some tickets left for the try not to laugh tore Portland Sacramento and Phoenix. I believe so if you live anywhere around any of those places get those tickies before. It's all sold out. Okay enough myself promotion. Let's just get to the podcast. Cast we had madam too so wax figures Anthony and I we need bancaire take care of all of a sudden we bump into Katie couric who recognizes Anthony. He knew who we were she said. Oh you guys have to go. Don't you WANNA come to our hotel room with us. Are there the food trucks out out there. Gosh well that's my favorite part of BITCON. But I can't go there they don't let me out. We couldn't hear what was is going on back there. But I've been informed that you've been talking some smack about Yeah about about our cheating. Yes welcome everybody to the smart cast live. Thank you all for coming out. This is super super cool. I'm seeing a lot of small shots. That's pretty sweet. Thank you guys. This is our first ever live. You've podcast and it's very early in the morning and we just were we. Were we up to last night guys. We were doing our Oh by the way for the people that are just listening on just audio. Who am I joined by? Olivia Shane Damian Courtney. What last night was a little bit of was? We had a little bit of fun we did. We robbed a bank and it was crazy. It's it's a typical tradition. We do here. We Go ed conned and we rob the local banks. We got four dollars. The most we've ever gone knows it doesn't pay to be here guys. We have to supplement or how to make it worth it and by robbing banks way meaning going to bucket of peppers. Oh because Libya so you spent you spent two weeks in Italy and now you know all all Italian yeah so I spent two weeks in Italy and I learned some Italian and I you you know we were at Bukit a Bapu and everyone was chanting. Buca Buca you know and I was like you know I you know I was in Italy for two weeks and I it was like you guys are basically just same buckets. A bucket of Beppo a bucket. The papers I spent two weeks in Italy show. How are you trying really hard to transition like a travel influence or now Giorno Grabotski right? Okay Okay we should stop this on. Everyone is terrified. We started this tradition tradition about five years ago. A bitcon where we get the whole smash Fam- together and we just blow up. Bukit a Bapu and rob it. Aw made out with a lot of Beppo this girl. Who isn't the way we? For the first this time we went to kind of fluke and like sort of a joke. Yeah I think I think what it was was guys. Have you guys ever seen honest game trailers and if you're the guy that did the voice for honest game trailers landed some big commercial gig and he was feeling like a baller. And he's like he's like you you guys let's all go out. It's my treat and we were like. We're looking around avid con. We're like where can you take twenty people to to a restaurant and we landed on Bougainville. THEMM got any BUCA fans out there. You guys for you guys. Are you guys Buca peeps or Olive Garden peeps. Let's let's give it. Let's give a cheer for Buca. Let's give a cheer for the. Oh Gee she went there because all the garden crowd is Karabelas. Italian grill. Thing thing out here. Is that just east coast now. corrobos is where it is. Add Olive Garden. Schuch Athletes Buca like like their name. Is Italian like Olive Garden. Is Strata full creating it. Yeah but like they're not even trying it bubble. At least that's exactly what they do that in Italy do you get kicked out of Italy honestly started talking Italian accent. I felt like that. Would they would understand me more like beginners I can i. Can I get that thing. That's like an actual thing. I was like Oh taxi. And they're like okay. I think yeah I loved Italy. I was eating mushrooms and hitting coined blocks and jumping on turtles. It was so cool. So we're here BITCON. This is this is my tenth of it. Confident every single the amount of people in this room where about the amount of people that were at at the first bitcoin was pretty. It was pretty nuts. It was you and the dramatic chipmunk grand just stays on day it was just the three of us just hanging out but no it was like it was really weird because there were no. There are no parties. There were no sponsors. There wasn't like an Expo Hall. It was pretty much just like a youtuber. With a little booth where they kind of like sold their Merchan- like did something like signings and stuff. It was like it was super low key like most of us we we just kind of hung out in the in the lobby and just kind of like hung out with like viewers and it was weird. There's there's a super bowl photo that somebody pulled up and it was like it. It was myself Anthony Retin link and Baretta Baretta and it was just. We all looked like little fetuses. Was He here at the at the height and those in century city and then it got big. There's a lot of hair in that photo by the way. Yeah I think rent had like he had like a buzzed. Haircut at that time so balanced out that balance out link at the time had like a combination of you and Anthony Haircut. I feel it was emo but turned into a bowl cut. Kind of what else was that. Like because I I remember you talked about the first BITCON and like was significantly smaller and you actually like new all the creators that were there because like these. It's so many people now like it's impossible to know every person here like who else was there. Do you remember Ryan Higa. I remember like I remember. Hang out with like Ryan Higa. Maybe Jenna Marbles is there but yeah it was it was a very like small group of people and the because like now they have like like these like crazy like big parties where like all the creators are at but back then we went to a hotel room and just like hung out on a hotel. Aw It was. It was very low key but it was nice I got I think that's the first time I ever met Ryan Higa and we were just like hanging out. How yeah I mean those ten years ago so it was twenty one? Oh so is able to get that out which I then probably through the next morning. Yeah no it's it's it's crazy the way the BITCON changed and it's still it's still just such a cool opportunity to I mean like you. You guys come here to to meet your favorite creators and I'm coming here for the same reason. I mean to me you guys but also to meet my favorite creators as well like it's it's so cool to see the people that because I mean they're they're my peers and you know I look up to them and and it's yeah it's cool. What's your what's your favorite? You're part of it con- y'All I just remember my first Bitcon when we walked into a hotel or just like a lobby of some kind just like like not just like oh favorite youtuber. It's all of them all at once. They're all there and you just don't know what to do. I just have. That's like mind your own business and go to your next thing but it's like feels good you like. You're just a part of this green. You're all here doing the same thing. So I really dig. When it comes social media we get a lot of messages and comments and things like that and obviously you're going to miss stuff you can't see everything but after a while you start to recognize you know names and comments Um and things like that and it's really cool to put like a face to the name I've had several people come up like my name is such and such online and I'm like Oh my God I actually legitimately know what you're talking about? Hi Good to see very nice to meet you and I think you know at other conventions and stuff that you have those moments where you're on your way to do something else Ulsan. Someone might see you and stop you and you'll get a phone. Say Hi and all that stuff but here that's the focus and that's pretty special. I think I think for in that that case like you guys if you interact with us on twitter you should be forced to wear your Avatar on your face so we know who you are. It's GonNa be a lot of courtney. Yeah okay that would be a little strange seeing much Damian hospice or just my face Alex Hey much easier to start a cult from there then from scratch so true true Shane. What's your what's your? Wow I mean what you guys are saying. It's weird because my I did con- I I was like two weeks on smash I don't think ah been in a video yet that anyone had seen so I was able to walk the floor and no one knew who I was and it was honestly that was really cool. There's a lot of really cool booths booze and are there the food trucks out there. Gosh I want something from one of those and I can't go out there. There's what big wall of Wa well. That's my favorite part of BITCON. But I go there. They don't let me out. There's a hotdog truck guys. We have to figure out how to we get to that hot dog truck. I crowd surf all the way out of the Convention Center to the hotdog truck. Security can't stop me up here. I'm not the ending up being trans or what we tried to get me out the doors and I just hit my head on the wall. How did Shane die at at BIC lease in a very cool away? Four hotdogs. Olivia okay so now. That I know Shane's favorite part of it. Con- is in the food. Trucks my favorite. Is You know once a year I get to do this. You know we get to meet each other and and hang out and hug so get the hang out but no I get to meet you guys in. That's it's a really really special time for me because we're always working working working and we don't really at actually get to put faces to the names that we see on social media so it's just really awesome to get to meet you is and hug and hang out. Yeah it's very cool. Yeah and the food trucks. That's pretty lame interest i-love-you Olympia. I like that all the people that were shorter than you at the meet and greet came straight to you to hug us because we're the same name short crew. I literally. I was telling my boyfriend last night I was like. It's so cute when little ones come and i-it's hug hug me because I feel like we're like little like I feel you. I love you. You're perfect hugging though. Yeah Oh yeah thank you. Oh I know from experience if you guys want to hug me come. Ten dollars goes through my mind though. When there's like a little teeny tiny baby coming up to hug US every single terrible joke that we make in any video to cycle through my brain? I'm like what we have. We said that you know that. Oh God this we've destroyed your development. I'm all downhill. Yeah there is like this super adorable like girl that was I mean. I don't think she was any older than maybe five eight river lake near the end she came came up. She didn't say anything she was like. I felt like if we were to hugger. We would've broken her. Maybe that's why they gravitate towards me because I'm less of a threat. Trample over her. I'm like Oh hey we're like the same way. If people really knew Libya they would know that you are the threat. I honestly drew. I was in the hotel lobby yesterday and I was like in a hurry somewhere and then I realized I forgot something a turnaround and there was just a little train of just little all tiny guys running behind me and like your passes eight community right.

They Spencer edited the texts. So small you just see her from across the field. She's like yeah. I was so mad. I I I like legitimately turned into cording Freakin Miller there because mad was was quitting before the creation creation. According frigging Miller was legitimately yelling angrily. A- We all play different kickball games because none of us knew the rules. You can't take playground game and say does everyone know the rules because school. The school region region varies. They don't even have the same name going to be like. Oh Oh you mean TAP The leather Pumpkin. With your foot and it's like that's why we call it back in Boise or whatever so I think the problem is you just had to go over the rules. It does yeah. I'm glad that was before my time because I don't want to be mad over the roles. Keith cheated I'm saying cheats Keith Cheats feats at every Summer Games. This is a well documented thing. Keith and laser corn are notorious. Guys this is. It's going to be a really good one. Let me ask you guys this. I was taking a shuttle back with laser corn yesterday After a fortnight gaming session and he we were just talking about it and joking around and he said like you know. My mom always used to say if you're not cheating you're not trying trying and other people are like yeah. My Mom said that too and I was like. Is this a phrase that sounds raw does anyone. has anyone heard that before okay. There were like three or four people with those vert. Know what the heck who is teaching. Why don't cheat have honor we ran? Lee was in the car with a hey Damien. So my mom's like uh-huh come up. I've never heard anything about laser coins. Parents I didn't even believe that he had them. I thought he was just walked. Yeah that'd be like rose like a phoenix out of some fire. Somebody opened a barrel of nuclear waste. Knee was just there. It was like hey what's going on. It's like all right like Oh what's your name. It was like laser cord we talk about. Can we talk about laser wolf. Can we talk about these. We make these fun hats. Let's in one of these lounges. And he weighs according to put laser corn on his. You know as as he would you know and then he gets his hat back and it's spell it's laser as our wolf and spelled laser l.. A.'S E O R. It was wall which makes me think that there has to be another youtuber named ladies. He's or wolf right that because that's a colossal very clearly. I don't understand what happened.

Just love them. Never you never know what to expect your first time like I think as twenty fifteen and it is like security was kind of different so like bigger influencers were kind of like would sneak around on the floor and there'd be people like screaming and running and you're like Oh my God this is actually insane And then the defy lounge was crazy. You guys remember. That was the year that we had our WAX figures. Mosh the movie. Yeah that was a big year for you guys twenty nuts. I was strange. Yeah we had.

You definitely need a poll a national treasure heist on my on my wax-figure because he's being disgraced right now. Okay I think Madam to so like they pulled Anthony and away from each other other right. I don't know where Anthony's wax-figure is.

They're like oh it's that that girl and smart and then other people specifically brought things for me whether they knew that I was going to be there or not. It was just one of the. It was just the sweetest this thing and I didn't know what BITCON was. I didn't have any sort of like Blake back back on research of what to expect but I feel like every year we come back to. Bitcoin Ryan still feels like that stope. That was a weird year. Also because I remember we met Terry crews really. Yeah I I was like that was like a weird moment where it was like some celebrities.

It's Super Bowl News. But we're talking we're talking about ancient means I feel like there's going to be like some sort of like revival of the old of the old museums. You can have your cats and your chuck testers. Somebody's GonNa make like a mean Bible at some point there's going give me like a meme archivist that you can go to a library or museum and see like the means of your.

She hopes no respect for grumpy cat at that same BITCON. Rip Ah Poor Guy Girl. Hey I mean guy in say guy about growth whatever twenty nineteen A Little Bob. Little Bob is still still kicking so low bob still alive so I'm stoked about that anyway. Enough about memes. What's what's the what's the weirdest thing that either view any of you experienced at vid con in all the years all right? I've got one real quick. The weirdest thing I've ever experienced was with Keith. And it was also with you and Anthony in two thousand fifteen twenty fifteen. We're at the Hilton so Keith and I were going and this is when we had our smoshing. Masha dinner going on our annual smash dinner. We always get together and have have a nice little dinner. We explain the Buca already explained to explain the bucket of peppers to them. Buca di BEPPO has a special place in all of our hearts and also a bad place in our stomachs is we were going to go to the Bukit a Beppo night keeping Argonne through the hotel and at this time in two thousand fifteen. It was the last year where I think fans could like kind of sneak into the hotel. Get into the elevators and like kind of chase people through the halls which was it sounds more fund than it is because like you turn a corner and it's Kinda like Zombie movie. There's just someone running. There's more than you just joined the direction that they're running and that's effectively. What happened with us? We turn a corner and there's an anthony and they're like we gotta go fans we gotta go. There's fans and we're like Oh okay cool because I guess they somehow saw them in an elevator or something they were running after them so we joined that we run we take corner we take another corner and all of a sudden jump into Katie couric. Does anyone know who that is. Oh thank you thank you straight up from. I believe that's Good Morning America today. Asia one of these. Everyone knows her. She's there in the morning. She's here with our whole team and easy nice that was it case in Katie couric. For some reason. I didn't even remember him. I was star struck by Katie. That's cared about so we S- get stopped by Katie who recognizes Anthony and we have to get to Bukit dinner in and Anthony. Anthony are like. Hey so nice to meet you. We gotta go. which keeping our who we were yes she knew she offered? She said Oh you guys have to go she. Don't you want to come to our hotel room with us. And and then her assistant was like you know I almost have a chance with Katie. That is the point on. No we were in. We were so shots. We were so shot that you guys like passed up just to get some food at Buca di Beppo. We're like Oh man you wanna go. Katie couric Ian. I want you to know that as an in eighteen year old. Katy Kirk didn't know who I was. Obviously she knows you guys. She had a bottle of wine in her system. Said you guys WANNA come back. We could interview you. Maybe have some of this wine and I'm eighteen and I'm just like the Katie couric. Just offer me an illegal beverage. Is this going to be on the news tomorrow. Walk this way more sexual than I remember it accepted. I didn't accept it. Yes she had her like shirt like over. Her shoulder rose petals leading back home. That including a very strange instead we ate Mozzarella so you don't remember. No you don't remember that. I don't remember her trying to seduce me. No no no no no now. You're taking it somewhere else. That is not what it was. What is he? He said she invited us back to her room. offered up a bottle of wine. I that's a sign station opportunity. You didn't take it Buca for years. These these guys are like man in. He's got some standards man Katie couric. He chose US each. Is the family dinner. And you didn't even know now. He chose Spaghetti off. You always choose spaghetti. The getty over course any other weird vid con moments. That was probably the weirdest one no one for me. That was my favorite moment. Mario Got Anything Ping. I can't think of anything off the top of my head. Nothing we're I don't think it happened at bid contract but I do remember. There was a night at some convention we smash US Games. Old School Smash Games crew. We were all playing like board games in one of our rooms and a fan was like knocking on our door really loudly kind of like sort of knocks. You know where you're like. ooh What did you do and then I remember like all of us are like what do we do. What do we do Mari Go? Go get the door and I'm like what it goes getting going gets the door but I remember we all like walked up to the door. We're looking through the whole Dec- who it was like. How's that guy we saw earlier but we opened the door like hated? We can't like hanging out and he was like okay. That's fine okay. It has got but I feel like it was a moment where we were all really like scared. Find Our hotel room. It was. Yeah that was weird literally. Nothing came came out of it. But we're like he found us. Do you guys do you guys remember when I'm back. In the days of defy defy lounge and that was like an area where like it's scenario like creators and industry people can kind of hang out away from the crowds and stuff and for some reason Mark Ruffalo was there showed up idea remember. Ask any any brought his daughter. His daughter's like a big youtube fan so then he used his Hollywood powers the basically get his way in and get whatever he wanted. Because that's what you do when you're Hollywood star. And and so he was like hanging out super super nice like talking to everyone is being very cool. His daughter was like really stoked to be there there and then later on. We're like we're like Dr. Is there really. Where's where's mark and he basically like? Ah dumped her off on us at the lounge like babysitter. Yeah it was. It was a smart Martin Luke. She is just chilling. Choose we had a little. VR Area there you remember with Vr Demo that and and then yeah mark was gone. He the kid back and scooped her up eventually didn't he. I also wanted off what he was stuck in the VR forever She died in the game. And everyone knows when you die in the game you neutron if features Mark Ruffalo and his daughter and the buys we he did have a son and and West befriended him and then they all went to New York comic con together and and Mark Ruffalo walked around the con with a hulk mask on and no one ever knew that I was having. Yeah so if you ever see people with masks on ask them to take it off because it could be a celebrity everyone with a mask even ask just with the mask I know who. Oh you are. Sorry we're told that you're not allowed to wear masks but if you're a Hollywood. ESPN Mark Ruffalo. You're loud yes. Every prison wearing a mask. Atacan Atacan is a celebrity confirms it is kind of weird like meeting other youtubers here at the parties. or at the lounges. Like you know. uh-huh them from the videos and you know them on on a surface level like is that. Is that weird for you guys like when you when you were talking to you too very like. Sometimes it's like you thought you knew them because you've seen I've been videos like. Oh no this is. Actually the first time we met is that. Is that ever weird for you guys like what. What's your feelings on that? It's really embarrassing. I did that with Linus. Linus Like Tech Tips. I was like hey man like totally thinking that I knew him and he's like Hey y'all have we met the like. I'm sure seem me like several times but they meet so many people that you have to imagine. They're just like maybe I did meet. You feel like if you could get away with it. I didn't I was not smooth and I still like fan girl around like people that I watch so I don't know I sometimes I can really keep it in and then other times I just feel like I'm twelve and like trying to talk to somebody like that I like and I'm like hey. Hey how's it going soon. Obama do an internal monologue is sad. I'm usually the guy who liked points. It's like Oh that's so and so but I'll never never go up and speak to you. I'm just like that. So that's so oh. I love their video. I saw so. Oh that's Oh. I don't like that person I'm GonNa back back to two feet away from you. I heard don't you like here at big building. You you know that he stay in my cup. I actually have trouble recognizing people like out of context or or just in general so a lot of times. I'll be talking to someone I'll be like. Oh cool how's your bitcoin going and then someone else will be like. You're talking to so and so from. I'm like Oh right. I watched their videos dash should video. I'm like I. I didn't recognize them in person. Does anyone else out there for veterans to meet Brown Arago literally the most aloof person. I'm not aloof. I just out of context. It doesn't always have to see them do. They're like video or do do they need in order to not not all the time but with some people. Yeah I don't I don't recognize him out of graphics. That's funny yeah. I'm a little similar to Keith. I mean we always hang out together so I think we're a little similar but definitely the elevators is when it gets awkward. Because it's just like you like six or seven other people and everyone has seen someone else else before but no one's introduce themselves and so you're either looking at the floor or just exchanging I contact with like slight smiles being like who's going to say first and then you just wait until it someone's floor then you never do that. Weird thing of like the elevator like Oh my God. That's a really big youtuber. Leaving the elevator right now. It's the only person I feel comfortable like straight up running up and hugging anthony and I did that before I got here. Yeah really I mean because we all know each other. It's what it is. He was going around with his cameraman and he popped up the elevator and I was obviously interrupting getting whatever he was doing but I had to. What's up he was like? Oh Hey all right. Goodbye shoe stuff. It was like okay. That's cool. I ran into him on the first day. He had like a big egg crate full of like his best interviewer shirts go. You look like you're going to something. He's carrying his tree around. Yeah he has like a tree that's an inset so you shooting some stuff here and so you carry this tree to you mean you mean tree straight up tree. Wow A full-blown trees. That's a fire hazard hazard somewhere. Yeah probably I don't even know how he got in the elevator. It's probably like seven or eight foot tall tree. The tree have a pass on sorry. That was uh it's so loud. Oh my God get addicted. Yeah the trees a total fan girl too. It's so annoying. I will say as awkward as I can be what I'm trying to meet people talking. Dancing is the best way for me to connect with people and we were at an event a couple up on nights ago and I was just kind of like hanging around on the sidelines. Keeping no getting down you guys are like it looked like a mosh pit but like like as dancing wincing mosh pit so everyone's very like no one's pushing each other but everyone's just like that sorta mosh pit and they're right in the middle of it and then like I come around and I'm like what's going on what's going on and then one of your buddies may name bid pulls me in. We were all dancing but I met a lot of really cool the people that way so sometimes it doesn't have to be verbal. You can save Mari on the dance floor is a force to be reckoned with. She actually surprised me to other. I know you had that in you. She's dance like a black girl. Little Bit I will say when when when when the smash family comes to a party we get down. Oh Yeah we like I remember one of my fondest Vid con memories was like when it was like the full crew of US probably three or four years ago at the Old House of Blues. Seventy one party and they were playing like all this music but nobody was dancing dancing and we we just form the circle and we just started getting down and and then obviously everyone saw how awesome we were and how great of a dancer. uh-huh myself quite ten percent good dancing and ninety percent just joke dancing with yes. It's the best. It's all about confidence as long as you look like like. You're you're you're just doing it. It's people are like okay. Yeah all right so mitt commit. No people were definitely pointing and laughing. I'm yeah you just didn't notice of your confidence. Yeah they were laughing at me to my to the raptor clause this move okay. Where was called? Is that a new one that you're all Dan. I'm working on that one. No one looked good rehearsal. Just take time to decide what he's stolen. Yeah he made it better by seconds. Keith better how long have you been working on that back to the lab seven years. What's what's the best so at avid? Conduct these lounges. All these corporate sort of like companies trying curry creators favors. They always offer up a lot of free crap. What's the what's the coolest free thing you ever you ever got? I don't know will like right off. What's the coolest thing but like the twitter lounge? A letter lounges. Always really cool like they give us like close close I I liked close so close. Yeah yeah this year they have adidas track jackets and they they told you could get something written on it and they had like these like artists like spray painting stuff on the back of the jacket. What did what did you guys get written on the back? Oh aw no nothing bad but like I just put put my at. It says act keithly junior and and I was like shouldn't have done that because they wanted you to your your at everyone was smarter than that and they just wrote a different thing on the thing. I'M GONNA follow the rules at keithly. Judy embarrassed because now whenever aware that what is does what I did. I don strikes strikes people that are going to be like. Oh this guy's like pretentious like it looks like own me. Follow me. The amount of strangers are gonNA look you up. I'm just when you're walking around where it at home or at home and I get coal.

But I have this theory that there is some guy out here. That's named laser won't and he's and he didn't get his hat so if you you need me if you want your halfback combined the laser coronet. Yeah the best way to describe the the gift the gifting suites would be if anyone's ever been to a bar Mitzvah. It's kind of like that. Except like just a little bit more ants instead of airbrush tattoos so like airbrush onto a piece of clothing for or you were out of a hat you get your. Id Dos but the coolest thing that happened.

How Trump Really Got Rich

"Uh-huh. Glad before you're allowed in stuff. Okay. Is not been clean since we took it over. Can you just kind of walk through a pile is a little bit. These are thousands of property records deeds and mortgages and transfers on every property ever own. Going back for six years. All these buildings here there's the house owned, and this is an aerial photograph of one of the buildings. I assume, right? That's. And then there's Bank statements tax returns, detailed accounting records where we can follow where the money's going. Okay. So I know this has been a sprawling complicated investigation, but I wonder if you could just boil it down for me. What is the big question that you have been trying to answer. For all of us. The question always comes back to what's the actual ground truth about Donald J Trump in how he got rich. My father gave me great knowledge. Did he give me a lot? The famous Goto talking point that Donald Trump says, I started with a million dollar loan. I built a company that's worth more than ten billion dollars. Okay. This is father loaned him a million dollars easy for me. It is not an easy for me. He parlayed that million dollar loan into this ten billion dollar empire. Small amount of a million dollars and I had to pay him back and I had to pay back with interest ideas that he's a self-made guide this empire, and I get it by myself. When you turn over the rock on, then nobody did it for me. It's just wholly untrue. But there's there's more to the story than just Donald Trump caught more from his father than is previously known yet from the documents we've gathered, we were able to unearth the tales about Donald Trump's wealth that he has worked very hard for very long time to keep hidden. My colleagues Russ buehner, sue, Craig, and David style have spent much of the past year locked in a room poring over never before seen documents as the investigated President Trump's financial history today, the story of what they discovered. It's Wednesday, October, third. September twenty. Third, two thousand sixteen was just chaotic day for me. At the time, I was closing a page one story that day and in between going from one place to another stopped at my mailbox. And there was one piece of mail there and I grabbed it and I looked at it and it was from somebody at the Trump Tower. I was sure what to make of it. I just had a couple of stories on them. I wasn't sure if it was hate mail who knows what it was and I open at and it was three pages of Donald Trump's tax returns from nineteen ninety five. And I just stood there. And I've been working with my colleague, David Bar sto on a couple of other stories I immediately went over to his desk. I remember I was on the phone, sue at the sort of agitated, look. Shoes, thrusting these papers kind of in front of my face. And when it dawned on me, what I was potentially looking at, I was like, oh my God and hung up. Do you believe voters have a right to see your tax returns before they make a final decision? I don't think they do, but I as a candidate, Donald Trump broke with forty years plus tradition by the climbing to release any of his tax returns. His tax returns tell a story that the American people deserve and need to know that is removed from the public record. One of the main tools that we have traditionally used to scrutinize the finances of our presidents. And at some point I don't remember it was that afternoon or the next day they came over to me, told me they had this thing. They wanna talk me about and we went into a small room. And what was it like to see those. Tax papers for the first time, it was just holy shit. The New York Times published three pages from the candidates nineteen ninety-five tax return. They showed Trump declared a nearly nine hundred and sixteen million dollar laws. These three pages were like gold because they were the only glimpse we had into what he had told the IRS about his well, the New York Times this morning reporting, Donald Trump, declared a loss of nearly nine hundred sixteen million dollars in nineteen ninety-five loss of over one hundred million dollars almost a billion dollars in a single year. That moment just us looking in starting to peel back more and more layers of the story of Trump and money. You may have heard. We've got some significant breaking news tonight. So six months later in March two thousand seventeen. Donald Trump is president. And Rachel motto late in the day, sends out a tweet saying, she's got a copy of Donald Trump's taks returns as we were all holy cow. Here is a copy of Donald Trump's tax returns. We have his federal tax return for one year for two thousand five. And in terms of what's on here, let me give you the basics. Aside from the numbers being large, these pages are straightforward. Turned out that wasn't very relevant Tori or as telling you would have hoped. But if you add up the lines for income, he made more than one hundred fifty million dollars in that year. Muzzle top raise interesting questions to us. The partial talks returned that we had from nineteen ninety-five show that he was bleeding money by two thousand and five at showed that he was making significant amounts of money. So we started trying to figure out how does it go from having a loss of nine hundred million dollars plus in nineteen ninety-five to booking one hundred and fifty million dollars of income in two thousand and five, what's going? Was there something extraordinary that happened in his life that year could the apprentice account for some part of that it had started the year before the sell things, and then we came. Across the slow smattering of clips that mention that in two thousand four, Donald Trump, and his siblings had sold their father's real estate empire Brooklyn for over six hundred million dollars or that. That's interesting, and it made us want to learn everything we possibly could about that particular empire. And we started reaching out to people who've been involvement in empire at disputes with it, worked for it trying to reconstruct a fifty year history of Fred Trump in New York City. And we started acquiring these documents that we sort of going through these documents previously, unseen documents, writing names down, fifty thousand pages of internal documents, and then we called people again. And again, I eventually were left with a detailed view of Fred Trump's empire. No one had ever seen before. So tell me about Fred Trump Donald Trump's father, Fred Trump was born in nineteen o five from the Bronx, the son of immigrants. His father had come from Germany, built some bars brothels may be and when he was twelve years old, his father died and Fred, at a very young age becomes enamored with the construction business. Just sort of an an incredible thing. By the time he was fifteen or sixteen. He started building houses not just like as a construction worker like overseeing the whole thing. He was described as kind of the Henry Ford of home construction. So he would hire a whole team of brick Masons. You'd get them set up with these high speed mixers. He'd set up floodlights. He run them to shifts a day and by thirty five, he was building hundreds of houses a year. Day of days America and her allies in World War Two in out to relay the news, anxious world and touch off rations throughout the country. There's this huge demand for housing for with turning veterans more than a million thing and damp. And the people say, luck is when being prepared meets opportunity. Well, that was an incredible opportunity. And Fred Trump was better prepared than anyone in the country. Federal government offered developers, low cost loans to encourage them, Senate them into building lots class housing. Many millions of Americans tell LeBron habitations which not only failed to provide the physical benefits of modern civilization, but brain disease name path. The health future generation Fred Trump became one of the country's largest recipients of those that are we subsidize building and he immediately launched on making these huge projects with low interest, government guaranteed loans, and keeping the costs so low that he was guaranteed a life of extraordinary wealth. So as you're going through all of Fred Trump's documents, at what point does Donald Trump of here? Donald Trump starts to show up in his father's business affairs when he's three years old in nineteen forty nine. So what the documents revealed to us was that when Donald Trump was three years old, he was actually Fred Trump's landlord Fred Trump gives his children the land under these massive apartment projects that he's built and then begins paying them rent. And as we begin tracking those payments, we see that those payments made Donald Trump the equivalent of a millionaire today's dollars by age nine. And then in the early nineteen sixties, red Trump was beginning to actually transfer buildings actual buildings to his kids. He runs them still. He does all the labor, but on paper, his children are the owners and the profits for those buildings start going. To them. So Donald Trump at age seventeen became an owner of a fifty two unit apartment building in Brooklyn and things just keep coming out. Nineteen sixty eight. He graduates college and he lands right into a cushy job at his father's company with the salary, Fred Trump found a way to make Donald Trump. One of his bankers. He gets consulting fees for doing things for his father, leased a car for you built his first offices in Manhattan for him. He also found ways to give him the laundry revenue from his buildings and then in nineteen seventy six. You see this article in the New York Times me grab it. And I'll just read you. The lead says he is tall, lean and blond with dazzling white teeth. He looks ever so much like Robert Redford. Rides around town in a chauffeured, silver, Cadillac. Date, slinky fashion models belongs to the most elegant clubs and it only thirty years of age estimates that he is worth more than two hundred million dollars. Took the New York Times reporter on a tour of what he was describing as his empire, showing reporter all defames. He's done all the things he's built all of his jobs as building and this building this building. What we now know from looking at these records, isn't it? Donald Trump didn't own any of that. Donald Trump hadn't been involved in the building of any of that. It's accurate probably that he was dating slinky fashion models, but we've come to learn. It was all his father's empire, his father's success, and he was just appropriating all of that as his own to build his own myth. This is sort of like the first instance where you just see the the lie begins. Thank you Mr. Trump for joining us this morning. Dan, I have heard that you are worth something like three billion dollars. In the nineteen eighties every time turned on the TV. Well, I've always said, you know, money isn't a totally essentially agreement, but it does make it easier. He was their young as Robert Redford. Good looks and he's rip and he was telling you how successful he was. Everything. To that point in time, when Donald Trump begins to realize, I can say almost anything to reporters, are you smarter than most people who call themselves entrepreneurs and it will come to endure benefit to my image and my reputation and I can make money off of that reputation. That's an interesting question. I don't know if anyone's ever asked me that question my smarter than other people. I think he starts buying casinos yachts from princes. He buys the plaza hotel, the plaza hotel in New York and my business real estate. That's the ultimate crown jewels. He's able to convince bankers to give him these tremendously outside loans based just on the image, the MiFID he's built for himself already. And one thing that we found that I don't think anybody ever knew before is that his father goes along with the ride on some of that, they had this particularly intimate father, son relationship. They talk to each other constantly and they each shared this view of the world that the world was this zero sum game. The idea that you're worth in a family matters based on how much money you're making an you're either killer or you were killed, and there was nothing in between. So one of the revelations that we came across the documents was how Fred, and Donald Trump coordinated stock purchases together. For example, in the late nineteen eighties York tycoon, Donald Trump wants control of the nation's largest airline. Donald Trump would leak to the financial press that he was taking a position in American Airlines. He doesn't have the financial wherewithal to take over those corporations, but his father, we can see in his tax returns by stock in American Airlines. Then the most active stock on the big board yesterday pushing all transportation issue sharply higher. The stock goes way up and his father tries to sell before it goes down. He doesn't make it. We saw this pattern in multiple instances and another case, Donald Natick public comment that he was going to take over Time Inc. the magazine publishing company. His father did buy stock right before Donald made those comments a week later, sold it any wind up making forty. Two thousand dollars just on his sons, hot air base, and it was very clear manifestation of these two guys executing financial strategies together. It was more than just a father, son relationship. They were trying to achieve something together in terms of elevating the idea of Donald Trump as self made billionaire. This goes on for years, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome. The author of this book right here Trump the art of the deal, Donald Trump. In nineteen eighty seven. Donald Trump published this book the art of the deal. Why do you learn the art of the deal? What point were you working with your father and you knew that there were bigger things for you? Why really think you have it or you don't have it premise of the book was that he only made good deals that he could tell the world how to make good deals and get rich on their own, and you have to go and be driven, you know, do all the different things that we also know about it and things I discussed, but by nineteen ninety, all of his bats had gone bad already getting deep into the whole. They would lead to his darkest moment. Casinos were failing. Businesses are failing. He was just buried in debt. He is going through a very rough divorce with Vaughn Trump. What we found in what people have known before is the degree to which is father helped him out of that hole was loan after loan after loan. He owed his father that point in time somewhere between fifteen and twenty five million dollars that he never talked about and that he wasn't paying back in the financial records that. We've obtained. We can see that the flow of money from Fred Trump to Donald Trump, increased at moments when Donald Trump was in his highest duress. He can't make his loan payments. People are talking about foreclosing taking away everything. He gets down at one point two, just having a couple of million dollars in the Bank, and he's burning through more than that every month. In the course of our reporting. We've learned that in nineteen ninety. It's just really dark period. In Donald Trump's life, he makes an aggressive play to get more control of his father's wealth. It's one of the most remarkable discoveries. We may long the way. You're not the average investor. So why settle for average investing. Now there's a smarter way to manage your money.

So that crucial point in his life nineteen ninety. We found Donald Trump crafts in a new will for his father. It amends the will that's there. And then he sends lawyers to his father's house to have him sign it. His father had no idea. This was coming and flipped out and according to the sworn. And testimony of his relatives. As he read it, he began to realize that what this document would do is that it would give Donald Trump extraordinary control over his estate upon his death is father was eighty four years old, but still incredibly savvy man and looked at this and thought this is my son who is in incredible trouble right now trying to get control of the empire that I built. You know, that was a step too far for Fred Trump. This means that my son's creditors could come after my wealth, my empire, and he shuts the whole thing down. He calls his daughter Marion Trump. Perry, has her our guys, a legal team to come up with a new will that will make sure that Donald Trump doesn't have any more control than any of the siblings and that his business problems can't drain his own empire. That episode it is this moment this jolt it kind of triggers a deeper reckoning within the Trump family. It forces them to come to grips with two facts. One is that Fred Trump is starting to get frail. His health is failing. You starting to suffer effects of dementia, and then the kids start to recognize dad has this enormous fortune. He had all these buildings that were worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and he had tens of millions of dollars running through his Bank accounts. We just couldn't believe when we started looking through the financial records of his companies how much cash she had and what they were recognizing at that moment was that if Fred Trump died, all of that every penny of that is subject to fifty five percent state tax. So that means of Fred Trump passed away and is worth a billion dollars fifty, five percent of all that. Ghost ankle Sam. And so the Trump's come up with a plan a plan beyond the bounds of the law. One of the first steps they took was to create something called all county building supply, all county, building supply and maintenance. So Fred Trump bought an enormous amount of goods and services to keep his building's going for years. Fred Trump was buying everything he needed for his buildings directly from wholesalers. So we need ne'er conditioner. He'd write a check, get an air conditioner. He needed paint supplies, go and get paint supplies. And then all of a sudden this new company comes along called all county. And it starts buying everything. So it will pay one hundred dollars for the air conditioner, three hundred dollars for the fridge hundred thousand dollars for the boiler, and then they turn around and they Bill Fred Trump for the very same items at this marked up price. And if they paid one hundred fifty for the air conditioner day, then Bill Fred Trump two hundred fifty and they pocket the difference. Same thing with the fridge and stove, they buy it for two hundred. They send an invoice Fred for three hundred all county pockets, the difference, it's kind of a middleman that's doing nothing. This company had no implies it was doing no negotiating of its own. Literally, it's invoice padding operation. All county was a company set up with the sole purpose of deceiving the IRS and we've run this scenario past some of the best tax experts in the country. Every single one of them says that's fraud. It's incredible to think about one of the things that really jumped out at us, how effective that process was started out relatively small in nineteen ninety two, but by nineteen ninety eight, it was generating millions of dollars a year and profits to the Trump children by the time he dies in nineteen ninety nine. He goes from being a guy who was sitting on tens of millions of dollars of cash to a guy who has less than two million dollars left. His biggest asset is ten million dollar debt that Donald Trump out him in that in and of itself is a testament is simply how successful they were at making cash disappear. But the second part of the scheme was actually maybe the most ingenious and involve the biggest tax dodge of all. By the early nineteen nineties there basically through all county and another entity that they set up getting their fathers profits from his own pyre. But their fathers still owns the buildings themselves. He owned all these buildings, hundreds of millions of dollars bricks and mortar, and they're going to take control that empire through this particular kind of trust that's called a grant. Lots of rich people have trust to kind of vehicle for transferring from one generation to the next. In this case, what the Trump's did is having put all of these apartment buildings in trust, they then systematically low balled, the value of each apartment building. They went out and they got an appraiser and the appraisals came back or just unbelievable. They had all of these buildings, Fred Trump's empire the prey so that rather than being what they really were, which is ten fifteen, twenty million dollar buildings instead having them appraised as if there were one, two, three million dollar buildings, they find an appraiser who says, some of Fred Trump's big apartment buildings are absolutely worthless. And they did this over and over and over again. And then they pushed the limits in other ways as well to reduce the overall value of this tremendously profitable massive empire. They put a value ultimately on this empire, a forty million dollars. What we found in our analysis is that in real life in market value, it was worth at least ten times that this is an empire that less than a decade later, the banks would place a value of almost a billion dollars. The tax experts that we. We've interviewed are saying that the way that Trump's took this legal thing in twisted, it is in fact illegal, you're not allowed to submit bogus appraisals to the IRS. Appraisals really have to reflect reality. I started off with a very, very small amount of money. And by the way, when my father passed away, remember I have four. I have a total five and my family. So we have brothers sisters split, and my father didn't leave a great fortune. It was Brooklyn and queens real estate. It's interesting because dot state has again fed into this narrative when Donald Trump points to it, he can say, look what my father is. A state was only worth twenty thirty million dollars. But now what they do is they build it up like, oh, he left Donald buddy. I set it off with one million dollars and now more over ten billion dollars, and I got the forty fifth president of the United States. And herited hundreds of millions of dollars from his father and much of it was gotten through fraudulent means that's that's an important chapter and his history that should be set straight and people should know about. So now that this investigation has been made public, what could come of these revelations where all this falls? I don't know. A lot of it has passed statutes of limitations, criminal statutes, generally limit people's exposure to a criminal charges to five, seven years. All those clocks long since told there is still the possibility for the IRS to perhaps penalize the family for what they did pursue back taxes, issue fines, the statue limitations on his is forever. So they could come back in any point time to look at that and impose penalties on them. But the IRS in this case is under the management of President Trump and the likelihood of that seems very remote. We on the one hand feel like, okay, we have pilled back many, many new layers of the onion of the store. Donald Trump and his money simply by taking his father's tax returns and taking all of these other documents that lay bare the financial relationship between Fred and Donald Trump. That tells us so much about the I say, fifty plus years of Donald Trump's life, but just imagine how much more we could learn how many more questions we could ask, how many more layers we could peel back if we could just get our hands on his tax returns. Here's what else you need to know. The times reports that the FBI is expected to complete its investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Brad Kavanagh, and deliver the results to the Senate. As early as today, it'll be made available each Senator and all the senators will be allowed to look at it. The way reports are always handled. Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell said the FBI report would not be made public before the Senate votes on Kavanagh's confirmation. But several of his Republican colleagues, including Senator John Cornyn of Texas said they would seek to release its findings in some form or to be satisfied until some public statement about what the shelter background investigation show. A few hours later during a campaign rally in Mississippi President Trump mocked the accusations of Dr Christine blahdy form. Thirty six years ago. This happened. I had one. Right. I had one. Well, you think it was one of how did he get home? I don't remember. How'd you get over? Where is the place? I don't remember how many years ago was. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. What neighborhood was it? And I don't know where's the house. Upstairs downstairs, where was I don't know, but I had one beer. That's the only thing. That's it for the. I'm Michael Barr.

Debates, Kanye at the White House and Nancy Pelosi

"This is John is coming up on Pinon central by editorial board colleagues and I chat about the state of the debates or should I say, the semi debates is well as the rather serveral appearance of Connie west in the White House, and we'll give you the insights and backstory of our meeting with house minority leader Nancy Pelosi. Hey, guys, this job air fully the chronicle senior political writer, inviting you to listen to my podcast, it's called it's all political. And we've got some great guests, and there we've got some longtime political veterans like Senator Dianne Feinstein to entertainers like Chelsea handler who are just getting into politics, and sometimes people even wrap on the show, sometimes Feinstein even wraps in the show. Well, maybe that's not true. But you should check it out anyways. His no matter where you find your podcasts. It's all political. Welcome to opinion central. I'm John D is the Chronicle's editorial page editor here with my editorial board. Collies lowest chasm Kopf KYW Milner, Josh goalkeeper, Spencer, Whitney, it was another interesting week in the news Senator Dianne Feinstein has agreed to her first debate in eighteen years. President Trump shared the spotlight or gave the spotlight to Kanye west in the Oval Office and house minority leader Nancy Pelosi met with our editorial board. Let's start with the debate news Senator Feinstein, we'll be debating her challenger fellow democrat Kevin daily on on Wednesday. October sixteenth at noon at the publicans policy institute of California, it will be live streamed online, but no live television. Does this even count as a debate? What do y'all think I think defined people that are going to watch it? Noon lowest unlikely. Yeah. This is Josh golca. I totally agree. Especially on the heels of the relatively weak showing. By gubernatorial candidates? It's a pretty pathetic excuse for debate Spencer Whitney here don't wanna cut you off guy. But one of the things I noticed too when it comes to the democratic process. People wanna hear a healthy debate. And they want to know that their candidates are up to date on all of the issues. So kind of putting it at a time where either most people are either going to launch maybe still in the middle of work. It really doesn't work for most Americans. I will give Kevin de Leon credit. He wanted bait. He wanted a lot of debates with Dianne Feinstein for a very long time, and he pushed hard for anything. So this is what he got. And he's going to take advantage of it. And I'm sure he'll try and slug her on all kinds of issues, and there's plenty to to to talk to her about. So he's taking. You can get and sometimes you have to make the most of that. It's one of Dianne Feinstein strategies told me. You know, Kevin daily on would have been willing to debate Dianne Feinstein at midnight at a bar and bar sto. This is what he's left with. I have to say, I certainly have respect for Mark Baldassare, the CEO the public policy institute. It's a terrific organization. But in my mind that is not the same as putting two candidates onstage at night under the TV lights with journalists. Asking questions thoughts. No, we've seen this with plenty of other debates. It's kinda gets to a sink or swim point dispense a wooden again. And again, we need to see that to really determine again who is going to be on top of these issues and really just to see their response as one either change from previous have flip flopped. Or is there anything new that they're going to be bringing to it are the new ideas that are coming? I think the the term is steals sharpened steel. So you know, we really need to see that. If it's going to be a good debate. Yet to KYW's point. I it's true that it's really normal for front runners to wanna void debates. And and that one's more totally on Feinstein not on daily owned. The gubernatorial debate was a weird one where the the the background are also seem to not want debate. So we ended up with with the same phenomenon there. But both candidates sort of wanting to avoid it as he mentioned, John Cox feigned a one oh a series of debates, then he when he had that one chance on CNN. He backed away saying that he didn't wanna talk about a lot of issues when he was in the chronicle offices a couple of weeks ago, I because I didn't want Jim look a cost to ask me about Paul Manafort when we have these California issues, but I have to say he ducked a lot of issues at that debate. I thought Gavin Newsom won going away. And it's just totally bizarre for a candidate who's getting. Clobbered in the polls to be avoiding debates. I I've never seen anything quite like it. Well, let's turn to the Oval Office in the White House at sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue, and there was a special guest this week. Kanye west would what do y'all make of that? What what was Connie as message? Special guest, particularly special. I think is the operative term here. So in the last few weeks we've seen a lot of things going on with kinda west. He's been on on Saturday Night Live, you know, giving ranch showing a lot of support wearing the MAG ahead in support of Trump giving speeches about abolishing or rather amending the thirteenth amendment. It's been it's been plenty of different ranch going on. But like, what is kind of most missing funded conversation is what people may be losing his, you know, looking at is he okay is this is this turning into more vica mental health issue or something like that? And if so are the people around him enabling him to continue going kind of going on these ranson things because right now, it seems like he's being used as a political foil, particularly for conservatives. You know, either to to say like, hey, we have this guy here who agrees with this everyone else should as as I've seen many times online get off the quote, unquote, democratic plantation and. In in move over to the Republicans who really have minority values in mind. I'm going to leave Connie a alone. Because I think that it should have been cleared to anyone who voted for President Trump at a Trump White House was going to attract tension seekers. What I what I will say is. I think President Trump had a lot of other things he needed to be paying attention to this week. And it's very telling that he wanted to focus our attention on this instead. Kyw which is just maybe there was a little hurricane in Florida that that maybe hurricane Michael, you know, there have been several deaths from that there's definitely going to be a pretty long ongoing emergency situation. He could focus on a trade with China. He could focus on this journalist who disappeared in the Saudi consulate in this stand bull. There are a lot of things that he could have been paying attention to or trying to draw the public's attention to I'm gonna leave Connie out of this and say that I am going gonna actually put this one on President Trump. I guess the thing for me about this whole spectacle was I mean, how many times have you seen where Trump is going to see the limelight to anybody Mary was in the Oval Office not saying anything just sitting there smiling. While Conway ranted on sometimes coherent, sometimes profane, always deferential to the president talked about how when he puts on that red make America great hat. At that. He feels like superman and talked about how how you Trump the male energy of the Trump campaign appealed to him. I don't know that this is really going to be a great message for President Trump in the midterms thoughts. You know, one thing I Spencer, Whitney again, I will say they do have something very much in common is understanding how to manipulate the conversation or distract people from other things as rightfully pointed out, you know, there's plenty of other things going on. But anytime, you know, Trump makes a big statement on Twitter or same very much the same thing with Konya. It attracts the masses to that. And so you have those defacto supporters that will no matter what they say. You know, they will find a justification for it. And then you have other people, you know, possibly like myself. I was just wondering why again are we hearing more about, you know, these rants and particularly in eight less about the music what we did not have any pop culture stars here at the chronicle this past week, but we did have house minority leader Nancy Pelosi lows Katkov over some of your takeaways of the Pelosi meeting. Well, I I was mostly struck about how she talked a lot about this. Strategy in the politics of regaining the house and not so much about the policies that the Democrats would be pursuing. So I was a little bit disappointed in that actually. Anybody have any doubt that Nancy Pelosi wants to be speaker of the house, again, even even as I think there's somewhere around fifty Democrats either candidates were members who suggest that they would not support her. If the Democrats predict house, do you think Josh gawky, I think she's been doing this awhile, and she's gone really used to accepting the fact that she's being demonized by Republicans to the extent that a lot of Democrats have to say, I don't support Nancy Pelosi one of the last big democratic wins, and Pennsylvania, the the the winner who won by a few hundred votes went on television to say that it's just to neutralize the attacks. And I I give her credit for sort of taking it in stride, and understanding that it's part of this big game that she's pretty good at KAI Milner. I thought you had one of the most pointed. Questions in our editorial board me with the minority leader when you asked her about how how she going to deal with the and I'll let you using your terms the the anger out there, particularly among the democratic base. She basically said that she was going to throw a couple of bones to the base, which I think is rather wise because that's what is going to keep her an office in the Republicans have shown a great deal of respect for what they're base values. While the Democrats have not always done that one of the bone. She said she was going to throw towards the democratic base was asking for the tax returns. Which really when you think about it is not a big ask and should have been released a long time ago. She also said that, you know, one of her priorities were was going to be to step up the oversight responsibilities of the house. Now what that means? I guess we'll find out because I do think that if the Democrats take the house, she will be speaker again, I just don't think there's anyone that can compete with her and. Especially with her fundraising abilities. So we'll find out she's going to try and go after Trump at least a little bit in terms of getting some transparency there. When thing she definitely children. I'll be interested in your thoughts on this Spencer Whitney is impeachment. The question came what about impeaching Brett Cavanaugh if if new evidence is found of about him or where Donald Trump, and she would have none of it. You know, I honestly feel like that is probably the best approach at this point. I don't feel like there's any real movement towards impeachment weather, particularly for Donald Trump. Brad Kavanagh right now as we ready. No, the Republicans control the house and the Senate, and the fact is as long as Bill there people are in power, and you know, regardless of how much chaos or you know, confusion or distractions happened outside of these very important meetings. They're just concerned about getting their legislation passed through and their agendas to go forward. So as long as that those positions are being served. There's not I don't think anything is really going to move them to to impeach Trump at this point or or break capital mmediately after our editorial board, which ran over an hour KYW Milner, and I sat down for recorded interview with house minority leader Nancy Pelosi. Let's take a listen, welcome to this edition of opinion central. We are live here in the San Francisco. Chronicle newsroom, I'm John D. Is he added twirl paycheck editor here with by colleague at a toil writer, kind Miller and our special guest. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi. Thank you for joining us. Let me ask you later. We just finished a a meeting with the editor board. I thought you had some very interesting observations on what you see coming in the November elections, you you said you're often asked whether this is going to be a waiver NAMI you indicated there are a lot of close races out there. All of the races are close the well of it say, maybe twelve or not of the ones that we expect to win. But in order to get past the twenty three that we need for the majority. These races are all very close away. Then assume NAMI are drops of water. That's how close these races are, but we intend to own the ground yield not one grain of sand and get out the vote in order to win. What's the message? You're gonna put forward in order to win some of these close races. And message is whatever Democrats for we're for the people were for lowering health care costs for increasing their paycheck by building the infrastructure of America and for making government work for them by improving democracy. There are lots of. Democrats. However who want you to pretty much take on Trump the second that you get into the speaker's chair. Should you win the house? How do you respond to an extremely angry base loudly to we have to proceed in a manner of that shows that we are different from the Republicans in different president of the United States house that Congress's Coequal branch of government and we intend to act away that honors the vision that our founders had for country the sacrifice our men and women in uniform make for freedom and the spray of our children. So we wanted to be worthy of the institution strengthened the institution. Not demean. It. The way the Senate did last week other Republicans in the Senate did last week with Kevin on I was struck during our conversation with the twirl board where you were asked where do you see potential common ground? If we have a divided government, if the Democrats take the houses, you hope and expect they would, but the Republicans certainly will be in the White House possibly in control the Senate as well. You actually identified some areas where you think that Democrats and Republicans could work together. Well, the issue of building infrastructure of America has never been a partisan issue. And we think it's a very important job, creating an issue tiv-. It's not job creating it. It's it's important in terms of broadband across country. Having children have access always on high speed broadband everywhere in America, it's about building schools and housing mass transit in the rest of that. We're talking about clean air, the public health issue as well as a transportation issue, and it's a quality of life issue. So we believe that if we can engage the public in that discussion we can win the day in the congress you mentioned the cavenaugh proceedings. How do you think that's going to affect the election? The matter standpoint, it has energized when women are like now third at least thirty points. There's a gender gender gap of about thirty points. Women relating no women are such smart voters, and they understand an insult when they see one. And so it has energized our base, but it's not just about that. It's about springing from that to what we will do in terms of of paycheck equality women's right to choose women's health issues as she was about respect for women that go beyond just a Cavanaugh, but that respect rewarding work in the workplace and understanding the need for a quality for childcare for women in the workplace. So respecting these and the ideas of women, I will recall number media. So we had in the leading up to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which obviously had prime rolling in getting us where Utah. Talked about that as your top priority. And I think every meeting since then you've talked about preserving the Affordable Care Act is a top priority. It's obviously been under some assault with this administration. Where do you think you can restore some of the protections that are endangered right now. Well, thanks to the mobilization of so many groups outside our little lobbyist. Save care. All kinds of groups that are out there to protect our care. We were able to save the foreseeable Care Act. They did some damage to it. And that we hope to restore when we have the bully pulpit had the platform to speak to the American people and say we can ensure and strengthen the benefit of pre existing conditions no longer being a barrier to you access to care. We can remove all doubt that there won't be no caps on on the insurance that that your family receives that we would say they're not going to harm Medicare and Medicaid that we're gonna fight to lower the cost of prescription. Drugs. These are all possible, they're all popular. And because they're popular we think we could get Republican votes to help with that in some of those case the president himself as a candidate in most rates as as president says conceptually, he's there all those actions haven't he's not conceptually there that wasn't true. When he said that isn't that conceptually that he was there to undermine the Affordable Care, and he does it every at every time he does number. We can preexisting conditions assisting conditions, though, she for lower price prescription drug prices in the rest doesn't matter. What he says, it's not even it isn't even intended to be true. I wanted to know what you had to say to the voters of San Francisco. We have lots of local issues here. What are you going to do for them when you get back into congress about housing about homelessness about we have an opioid crisis? Here. We spoke briefly about hunters point in the chaos going on over there. What are you going to do for the people of San Francisco? Well, I let me just say there's no privilege that any up. My colleagues can afford me. Like to me leaders speaker that compares with the the privilege of representing the people of San Francisco, and the congress of the United States every day, I walk on the floor to say they chose me to speak for them. And and doing so I listen to the priorities that they have established. We city of Saint Francis is song of Saint Francis our anthem and a make me an instrument of IP snake this darkness light hatred. Love despair. Hope so a city San Francisco's a city about values. And when people say San Francisco as I say, yes, yes. But then the issues that flow from that in term. Of affording of having shelter for people and respect and meeting the needs of people with HIV and aids and other health issues. San Francisco leads the way, so when I listened to my constituents I know that the ideas output with will serve as a model to the rest of the country as we address the needs of the people of San Francisco because we have shared values across the country. Also shared problems, the housing issue and homelessness issue is a big issue in the whole country, the issue of the health issues we've had led the way in the city of San Francisco. Thanks to many of our elected officials here and the model that's Francisco presents is of national significance. So it's not only important for each and every constituent here. It's important for what it means to the country. One to ask you about a letter that you just sent out a freedom of information act request on on some of the information related the cavenaugh nomination that. That the US Senate never saw not only some of his papers during the Bush administration. But but also the investigation. Assuming you get that information back. What do you think it'd be done with it given that he's already on the court? Well, not too much in terms of his being on the court, but we don't want anything like this to ever happen again. And what's important about having all being on the court apart from the issues where we disagree. And but the president won the election is anybody he appointed would probably be supporting those things was most dangerous about. I guess I have to say Justice. Kevin now is that he does not believe he thinks the president is above the law. So the president sent to the court a person who undermines the separation of power and the co equal branch of government by saying when I'm Linda court has said, I don't think the president should have to answer for any of the charges that have come to him. So he is undermining. The balance of power that our founders intended. And I don't think that he was honest in his presentation, but the biggest danger is not only on the issues because anybody the president would appoint would be against us on a woman's right to choose and voting rights and civil rights, and and so many of those issues LGBTQ, get a marriage equality. The list goes on guns immigration, but that's no he won the election. So he appointed somebody like that. We would only hope that whoever they he would appoint with honor the constitution of the United States, which is taken oath to protect and defend. I don't believe that Justice Kevin can fully take that oath from what he has said already. But putting him aside? We don't want this ever to happen again. And so my freedom of information letter would be foia letter. But be about we want to see what the of what the communications were to the FBI limiting their investigation. A B. What the the report was why should this is very important. Why should it be confined to one hundred people's if they were going to John one at a time to read this thing, I was shameful? So we want wanna see it. We just wanna see truth people should know especially with the president. And a very disgraceful way. Speaking out in a very negative way about women. He said, they're good people on both sides, and Charlottesville imagine. But this was an angry mob. Women speaking at for Dr Bassi Ford, just appalling. So anyway will want to see what the instructions were from the White House to the FBI. And by the way, I just remind that in two thousand sixteen in September of two thousand sixteen the F B I released released its communications with its interviews with Senator Clinton Secretary Clinton, they released it and why they said well because it was public interest in it. And why because there was a foia. Here's my way leader Pelosi. Thank you so much for spending time with us on behalf of my colleague kind Milner myself. Thank you all for watching this opinion, central back with my editorial board colleagues KYW Miller any takeaways or overriding impressions of Nancy Pelosi. She seemed really pragmatic about what is going to take to win the house, which is that it's going to take a message about economic security for families. And she seemed to think that it was not going to be a slam dunk, and that she was going to have to work with a pretty hostile Senate and a pretty hostile White House. So she sounds like someone who knows exactly what kind of battle. She's facing. No question about it. In fact, I was struck by the one figure that she came out with where she said twenty five thousand boats Dacian wide in all those congressional races are good determine which party remains in control, that's pretty profound and that wraps up.

Your listening experience. reince today it is May twenty-eighth Nineteen seventy-two fifty two year old lily. Gray officer thirteen year. Old Neighbor arrived as she heads out on a southern California highway to meet her husband and Bar Sto. She's been having a few problems with her little six month. Old Ford Pinto. Oh but it seems fine right now after a stop for gas in San Bernardino Gray settles into a sixty mile per hour cruise on the freeway. She sees congestion ahead slows down than changes lanes to avoid the traffic. Some her pinto stalls out. She's powerless to do anything. And just let the car coast to a stop. She's stuck on the busy highway. The car behind her manages edges to swerve out of the way but in nineteen sixty two full size Ford Galaxie is barreling straight for the driver of the Galaxy Galaxy slams on the breaks slowing to somewhere between twenty eight thirty seven miles per hour when it slams into the rear of the Pinto. The Pinto's flimsy flimsy bumper crumples and the Pinto explodes in flames. Engulfing the interior of the car gray dies on the fire. The boy is burned over most of his body he is permanently disfigured. Ralph Nader's grim. Prediction has come to pass an investigation reveals that the design of the Pinto the placement of the gas tank and the lack of reinforcement around. It made this car vulnerable to exactly this kind of accident. Worse court testimony shows that Ford knew about the facts but opted not ought to pay the fifteen dollars and thirty cents per car that it would have cost to make the car safer instead. Ford calculated that it would be cheaper rid of payout lawsuits. Then correct the problems. The boy who survived and his family Basou and there were awarded three and a half a half million dollars in damages and there are other claims about Ford Pinto bursting into flames after rear end collisions. Lots of them. At the urging of federal regulators Ford Recalls Pinto's it becomes the largest auto recall ever at the time in fact there are more to come in nineteen seventy seven. The big three automakers will recall more cars than they sell ten point. Four million in passenger cars of various models in years. Carmakers aren't just battling each other and the foreign competition now. They're grappling with the guts of their own creations. He will become an existential question. How do they hold onto once flag-waving buyers who have now become wary? The two biggest car brands in America board and Chevrolet face a cold truth. The road ahead is dangerous. Indeed from wondering I'm David Brown and and this is business wars And this is our final episode of Ford versus Chevrolet Technology in the fast lane. In this episode we go from the busy sixties to the more sobering nineteen seventies and then two drivers who want powerful and fuel efficient cars coming up fast though as a generation that might not want a car are at all for now here the cliff notes to get everybody up to speed the golden age of racing and muscle cars. All of that is in the rear view. Now there's a whole new roadmap for American carmakers and things are about to get even worse. Germany has staged a beachhead ahead on American shores with a fuel-efficient competitor. Yeah this cute. Little Volkswagen Beetle with it's Funky bug-eyed look becomes cool especially considering considering its cheap price tag by nineteen seventy Ford and Chevrolet are in a new race and this is the crazy part. It's all in reverse works. They're working overtime to introduce smaller less powerful and more fuel-efficient many cars sure they're cheap and ugly and hell. No musicians are writing odes to these. Autos the Ford Pinto and the Chevy Vega both sell for around two you grant this ain't no mustang versus Camaro. The Pinto in Vegas will go down his two of the least exciting vehicles ever produced by Ford and Chevrolet and the big take three of taught their foreign competitors where to reach American buyers. It's not the racetrack for starving interns. Find a car forced interns. Things can afford. You asked for it. The Toyota Corolla two door sedan. Probably the most sensible car in the world forty nine highway thirty six city and can you get Toyota durability and reliability at an incredibly low sticker price Toyota. It's just common sense what becomes the the biggest business story of the nineteen seventies actually start. Small California drivers began to see strange little cars. They don't recognize is tooling around Honda. Civics Toyotas and Mazdas America's approaching a deep recession when people see Z.. These cars they're wondering. Can I save myself a lot of money and aggravation if I buy one of these. Japanese cars and during the nineteen seventy three oil embargo when the price of gasoline is skyrocketing when people are becoming environmentally conscious for the first time when the word smog is entering the American lexicon these little fuel-efficient Japanese cars punch well above their weight as customers do the calculus between sacrificing thing. Is that eggs for savings. They think well hell maybe. These Japanese cars aren't so ugly after all so how how is the largest car company in the world responding is GM working feverishly over time to come up with a challenger not exactly but in nineteen nineteen seventy-three a GM executive named Pete Estes who led Chevrolet for years and is now an executive. VP thinks the company should at least investigate investigate the competition. He calls dashing. David Davis one of the most influential car journalists advertising men of all time David. I got something you should look into go overseas and check out the new front wheel drive cars that are becoming popular elsewhere now. Davis is a force in automotive circles. And he's intrigued by this request. When he returns he meets with estes in Detroit? Estes is eager to hear what he thinks. Well what'd you learn. Dr Davis doesn't sugarcoat it. The front wheel drive cars being produced abroad. I got to. They're better than our American cars. You guys better get prepared for a fight. ESTES doesn't seem to get there's been a seismic shift instead he goes on to explain to Davis why. GM We'll just sit tight. His words sum up everything that is wrong with American carmakers in the early nineteen seventies when I was at Oldsmobile Bailey was something I learned that I've never forgotten. There was an old guy there who was an engineer and he'd been gm a long time and he gave me some advice. He told me whatever you do. Don't let gm do it. I now what does this mean it means that the top man. GM believe they're the too big to fail. That Americans are going to buy chevrolets no matter what but it turns out. Refusing to innovate is a big big mistake. Nimble Japanese cars are coming up fast on the passing lane overtaking lumbering American cars millions of buyers bucked. Buck the patriotic call to consumers and do what had once been unthinkable. They buy Japanese by one thousand. Nine hundred seventy four. The Toyota Corolla gets a boost from American consumers becoming the best selling car in the world around the same time. Lee IACOCCA now. President President of Ford Motor Company reporting to the Chief Executive Henry Ford. The second pays a social visit to car builder all around motoring icon Carroll Shelby. Wait there's something. The Texan wants to get off his chest. Only I've been given a lot of thought to buying a Toyota dealership myself. Self you know. There's there's one for sale in Houston now that is heresy for a Ford Man. But I- coca just laughs it off. Let me give you the the best advice you'll ever get. Don't take it. Why not because we're GONNA kick their asses back to the Pacific Ocean Shelby shoves? His hands hands in his pockets and stares off into the distance. He turns down the deal. Wow will he regret that. In nineteen seventy six the Japanese invasion gains momentum. Thanks to the nifty Little Civic Honda Racist Past Volkswagen to to take the third spot among auto imports in the US numbers one and two that would beat Toyota. And Datsun. How are they becoming so successful? Also fast will. For one Japanese car companies do not function under the huge burden of employee health care and pension obligations that Ford and Chevrolet overlay face. Their production process improves. The workflow in eliminates waste allowing him to sell cars cheaper while making a bigger profit on each car chevrolet executives respond the only way they know how it's a familiar trope America. What your favorite sport Sandwich addle apple and what's your favorite car? America baseball hot dogs Apple Pie and Chevrolet Right. That's right by American. Oh you better chevrolets still number one in the US. But by nineteen seventy six Chevy's market share is nosediving all the mechanical problems problems are plaguing buyers in nineteen seventy eight the number of auto recalls while US carmakers surpass cars sold. This Is a disaster that year the nation's top car executives converge on the windy city to attend the Chicago Auto Show. The the huge McCormick convention hall is filled with Shiny cars and nifty exhibits but the gloom here is palpable when a New York Times reporter asks GM's GM's President Thomas Murphy about the current state of the industry. There's a hint of a glum confessional. In his response you know what it may be that we were late in recognizing just how unhappy people were with our combined performance. Maybe we were so caught up in the daily competition for business. We might have gotten out of touch with what customers wanted and they're thinking about the environment. They're thinking about gasoline prices. Now those are humbling words from the president of the world's largest car company but the companies answer to the rise of Japanese and European imports is shocking mm-hmm in nineteen eighty chevy releases. Its first front wheel drive car the citation it's the first new model for this new decade and an answer to the Foreign Invasion Chevy V.. Eight Chevy you. Everytime English it not only is the citation homely. It's plagued with mechanical problems. One test driver gives a head head shaking review after about four thousand miles. The under hood boom fill out four hubcaps got lost and the alternator belt tore up Finally the alternator gave up the ghost. Emergency Brake cable disconnected. What a mess but wait? There's more the sound deadening coming in the door. Panels peeled off and the body panels did to now the interior space is pretty good but somewhat spartan there's no trip odometer bad visibility. His ability to the rear makes parking hard. The turning radius is terrible the citation would come to be known as one of the worst cars ever produced at Ford World Headquarters. There are also big problems for different reasons in July thirteenth nineteen. Seventy eight and board members are gathering in a conference room one at the faces of the Ford Brothers. Billy and Henry Ford the second and it's clear something bad is about to go down and it doesn't take long either Henry Ford. The second looks at the board members and delivers an unequivocal ultimatum. It's him or me. Henry the second is talking about Lee Iacocca Ohka the president of Ford. This is a standoff. That's been brewing for years. Ever since the Mustang change the course of the company in Nineteen sixty eighty four Henry Ford. The second has been growing suspicious of IACOCCA Henry. Ford the second is often invoked the phrase my my name is on the building it seems that IACOCCA has been forgetting this. Oh and the way he wears his fancy suits his growing power his fame. It's all so annoying to Henry Ford. The second the disaster of the Ford Pinto certainly does not help I A- Kokas. 'cause when IOKA's cocas brought into the boardroom he knows what has just happened and demands answers. He wants to know why he's being fired. What is he doing wrong? Ford steps up to answer you know. I just don't like him I A- coca points out that the company will clear one point. Eight billion again in nineteen seventy eight. You'll never do it again. Henry Ford the seconds brother Bill is in tears as IACOCCA walks out bill. Ford says. I'm sorry I'm sorry Azcarraga Coca somewhat relieved. In fact he tells France thank God bullshits over news of the firing shocks the business world but it would turn out to be keun for AIA coca because a few months later he takes over a failing Chrysler Corporation and leads Chrysler from the brink of extinction back to profitability after all that drama. Henry Ford. The second retires a year later just as Japanese carmakers are making making the future of American cars. Look ominous unions are also creating dust ups. Philip Caldwell has named two run Ford Motor Company the First Non Ford Family member at the top Ford is earned a big profit in nineteen seventy eight but prospects for nineteen seventy-nine aren't so good in fact. They're downright scary on October. The first one thousand nine hundred seventy nine Henry Ford the second meets with Caldwell the day that Caldwell will officially takes over as the to ride down on the elevator at the glasshouse Ford World Headquarters Henry levels with his new man. I'm really sorry about leaving you with all these problems. It's an awful time doesn't seem fair to dump this on someone else caldwell doesn't take it personally personally. Well you've been through it all yourself. I guess yes I suppose so but it was different then I mean even at its worst. I in Nineteen forty-six. We could sell everything we made. But you don't have the market with you anymore. It's changed on us and at the dawn of the nineteen eighties. A darkness falls upon. Detroit was at the time of World War Two the greatest manufacturing center in the world. It is now a sprawl of slums and shuttering factories in Flint Michigan. Where General Motors was founded? The company begins closing factories. Factories and laying off thousands of workers.

The celebration would not last long. It is October nineteen ninety-five crowds are filing into the Nippon Convention Center in Tokyo for the thirty first Tokyo Motor show. The theme theme is called Dream. The dream a car with that feel. They're on display is a new odd-looking Toyota with a funny name how do you pronounce it Prius yes. This is the new concept Toyota Prius and it requires some explaining the word previous in Latin means prior to or original and this car is original. Indeed it has two motors a battery powered motor and a small gas engine that can drive. The wheels also recharge the battery the result. It gets over forty miles per gallon on the highway at twice the mileage of a new Ford explorer explorer when the Toyota Prius first arrives in US showrooms in two thousand it moves like a slow burn getting hotter and hotter until it becomes a sales phenomena. How do Ford and GM react funny thing Ford discovers that American tastes? It's are changing. Maybe it has something to do with the excesses of the DOT COM era but for some reason lots of Americans want big again. They want space for the kids and all that stuff they're hauling from Costco through its Lincoln Brand Ford introduces the first luxury. SUV The navigator it does so well. GM counters with a plush Cadillac Escalade. People are buying big houses and they want an escalade or a navigator in the driveway. On on top of that General Motors can barely keep up with orders for an SUV. Call the Hump Virtual Monster Truck for the masses adapted from an oversized military transport transport vehicle. American is cool again as Chrysler scores with its gangster style full-sized three three hundred Chevy's building new Camaro redesigned to emulate its original muscle car of the sixties and in two thousand five the CEO.

Smile as he's nearly blinded by the light announces. Well as most of you have heard me say many times times if I only had one car to drive for the rest of my life it would be a Mustang. Americans are getting particular about what they want in a vehicle at the same time as the previous picking up steam Ford and Chevrolet or unveiling cars that are virtual copies of the powerful fords and Chevys of the sixties on top at that Ford and Chevy. You're selling millions of oversized. SUV's pickup trucks but by July of that same year. Well it hardly matters. We're sitting down eight hundred seven hundred industrial more than nine hundred came back into the market in a very big didn't work at broke down. The machines broke down when American survey the damage of the two thousand eight meltdown. They burned with anger. 401K's are evaporating wall streeters are panicking. The federal government has taken over mortgage morgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Lehman Brothers has filed for bankruptcy and GM is looking for a life raft in Washington D. C. General Motors CEO. Rick Wagoner settles into a chair in front of Congressional Committee members who stare at him with bitter contempt GM's Em's top brass has arrived in a private jet to ask for a bailout of at least eleven billion dollars. Pennsylvania Democrat Paul Ken. Dorsey is getting frustrated. Straighten with wagoner's ducking and weeding. Maybe maybe I'm denser Mr Wagon. I don't quite understand what the hell you're just told me. Can you just tell me in absolute terms James. How much money do you need to survive General Motors from today until March Thirtieth Carson? It's going to depend on. What happens with suppliers enlarged? I understand give me your worst case. Scenario worst-case scenario the amount of money would be significant. I mean we have. We have supplier. What is significant African next on the hot seat is Ford CEO Alan Mulally to underscore how loaded Detroit has become? Molly is asked if he would cut his seven figure salary down to one dollar until the situation gets ironed out allowing. Are you willing to go down to the dollar. I understand the intent. I think Roy is okay. Commanders now ultimately the Obama Administration authorizes nearly eighty billion dollars to GM and Chrysler her and other auto related companies. Ford is the only one of the big three. That doesn't really need alone. How will it turns out the just before the financial meltdown? Four did something radical three years earlier fearing Ford's position would suffer. Should the economy go south. The company company borrowed twenty three point. Six billion dollars a move that at the time was sharply criticized by shareholders as banks began to fail in two thousand. NATO GM and Chrysler were forced to go hand in hand to the federal government. Ford was well positioned to ride out the storm. In fact Ford's move made made its chief. CEO Mulally look almost clairvoyant. All of the big three wound up weathering the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression but new competition was arriving not from Japan or Germany. The new competition is homespun from silicon. Can Valley we have come to the fork in the road and as Yogi BERRA would've instructed we're going to take. It is a spring Spring Day in two thousand fourteen on a California highway a White Lexus. SUV's motoring along through the traffic. Some people do a double take not because it's sex but because of the awkwardly spinning radar system mounted on its roof. What the Hell is this? Yes this is a Google self driving car so there are things that have to happen before the car can drive itself. I figure out its location in the world so we use. GPS BUT GPS isn't always that accurate. which is why we rely on? Other sensors like the laser which picks up on details in the environment that help us identify identify more precise location so think of the sensors as the cars eyes and ears but with is I can see far off in a sense and three hundred and sixty degrees around the car in two thousand fourteen this seems revolutionary terrifying even but statistically these cars are safer than human driven cars because computers shooters are always paying attention. They're not fiddling with the radio or trying to settle kid squabbles. In the back seat computer reaction times faster more reliable reliable and always sober for the first time since those exciting days when Henry Ford was building his first car automotive engineers there's are truly reinventing the wheel the possibilities are astounding. There are not only self driving cars but powerful fola electric and hydrogen powered vehicles they can cruise hundreds of miles on a single charge with zero emissions and people are falling for these sleek new self driving electric victory cars. We've left the era of odd-looking. EVT's it only a tree hugger could love nowadays. There is Tesla envy this California built outfit outfit. The most successful new car company decades although questions persist about its solvency and its ability to deliver on the orders Ford is now doing wing something. It's founders. Never imagined it's repositioning itself as a technology company as well as an auto company the Ford is planning to unveil it self driving car in twenty twenty one but it's emphasis will not only be on mass manufacturing but on service delivery partnerships use anything that requires delivery. Ford is betting that it self driving cars can do all this for you. Pizza delivery an autonomous Ford car is on its way. Want to go to the movies and autonomous Ford will come pick you up. Not only will cars no longer need human drivers. You won't even have to own a car in the first place. In fact Ford recently announced it will stop building once popular sedans like the fusion and focus in North America so that it can hone in on its new high tech future feature. It's not about to give the coveted Mustang and it will still make profit rich trucks well earlier this year. General Motors announced that in twenty nineteen eighteen. That's just one year from now. The company will offer a Chevrolet Cruze Evita consumers. This is an autonomous car that has no steering wheel or or driver pedals Chevy will create fleets of them to serve as personal and ridesharing vehicles. GM's Orion assembly plant in. Michigan is currently the world's worlds first factory gearing up to mass produce a self driving car. Meanwhile GM's first ever female CEO. Mary Barra as taken can one of these vehicles for a spin or perhaps we should say the other way round. I've ridden in the cars in San Francisco and it's really quite astonishing to see what these cars are able to do. And we're seeing progress on a almost a weekly basis but in its ads Chevy continues to pitch itself as the maker of the great great American Motorcar talking full-sized old school sedans like the impala and rental car staples like the Malibu and of course the Chevys fire-breathing Camaro the duel with Ford's Mustang continues wonder if Chevy and Ford Art hedging their bets just to bid after all none of us know we're all this will wind up right now. GM and its flagship. Chevy remained number one in the US closely followed by Ford Toyota right behind. I nonetheless you can't help but sense. There's a big change coming to the American highway. Have you noticed teens. Don't like to drive as much coaches they once did cruising a thing of the past. The Romance of the road just doesn't seem to have as much pull as it used to yet. There are still car our enthusiasm out there who will tell you that American cars have never been as plush or as powerful as they are today a fork in the road indeed. We only have a glimmer of what the next revolution in cars will look and feel like we can say this much. It won't be just car.

Kripke was in fifth grade when she was given her. First Dictionary can have the feeling that it unmarketable. Hey world for her. What's the book is Bit you? It doesn't let you go. I conceive of each of these books as a sparkling jewel sixteen Orlando Moncada left his home in Peru with his mother and two siblings and traveled up through Mexico hoping to cross into the US where his father had been working cleaning buildings. It was the nineteen seventy s and Orlando loved disco. So he would try to calm share like John Travolta. He would try to have almost fantasy closed like John. Travolta data at the time his family crawled through a hole under fence into the United States. Orlando was told it was good luck to reach down into the American soil and fellas pockets soon after they were arrested by the Border Patrol Wa searching his pockets the authorities found.

They're over the death of George Floyd who died in police custody on Monday but the protests only intensified in the hours afterward as residents took over a police precinct and set it on fire.

Even as floyd repeatedly told him that he could not breathe a scene that was captured on video. You're watching an execution execute.

Act To make that social media companies that engage in censoring or any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield. That's a big deal. They have a shield. They can do what they want. President Trump has issued an executive order. Curtailing the legal protections that shield social media companies from being sued or held liable for the content posted on their platforms. The move appeared to be a response to a decision made by twitter days earlier to fact check. The president's misleading tweets about mail in ballots in this false election. One egregious examples when they try to silence views. They disagree with by selectively applying fact check fact check. F- act fact. Check what they choose to fact check in what they choose to ignore or even promote is nothing more than a political activism group or political activism but the Times reports that the executive order may backfire on trump removing legal protections could encourage social media companies to more aggressively police the most provocative message on their platforms including perhaps the president's the daily is made by feel welcome.

News Newsradio wham eleven eighty eight five. Thanks for listening to the Morning News. and. It's time for Bob. Laws Berry newsradio WAM eleven eighty. Thanks brother brethren rather I appreciate the morning. Rochester the network lady their, who sometimes is a sharp, and sometimes not if she was quoting directly from the trump tweet, then he was in significant error, and she was a freelancing that she was insignificant error I can't check as I have been blocked on twitter by Donald Trump since before the two thousand sixteen election, but Fort Lee Virginia has never in my experience ever been called for Robert e Lee and I. Do not believe that that is. It's official name I've seen it referred to in our army documents and an army histories but always exclusively as a Fort Lee and I don't know why that just sort of kicked me in the head, a little bit, but Fort Lee is a place which has seen the honorable, patriotic noble service and sacrifice of generations and generations of American soldiers and others write that name, Fort. Lee is attached to the service of those soldiers. In my mind, it does not and rightfully should not accrue to a man. Robert, e Lee. Though beloved by many and probably admired by even more. A man who nonetheless violated his oath of commissioning in the United. States army, and took up arms against the flag, people and constitution of the United States of America right. I hate to come off like it civil wartimes, but if you've done that, I say piss on you and again. You know whatever they do about naming these forts or whatever? It is Fort Lee. which speaks again to those who, for generations have rendered service to our country there they have sanctified that name through their service. The name of that installation is no longer about him. It is about them at least in my mind, right Ditto for for Brag. Which is that name Fort Bragg? It has been brought to great honor certainly not by the second rate, confederate General Braxton Bragg whose name was pulled out of the pages of dirty history to be honest with you by Democrat politicians years ago in order to get them votes right, but but Braxton Bragg is rightfully forgotten by history. Fort Bragg. A name, which is again, Ben Sanctified and purified by the sacrifice and service of an astounding number of truly stunning American patriots. That's a whole different thing. Forgive me. I want to get off on this Jag. Which would we name? The affords. I have said that you know when I first came in the Army I was astounded that we'd named for its after traders after people who had fought against US people who we had a defeated. I've since learned the history of why that was done. It was again in an earlier day in a different spirit of political correctness, and again in that day pushed by the Democratic Party. but I also have over time developed the feeling that those names are not the names of men anymore. They are names which represent service, so forgive me and I recognize that many people will not have that view, and it's not something that I want to argue because if you and your heart stand up and say sorry, Bob, it's still honors to me. Some confederate dirtbag I'm not gonNA. Argue with you because I can certainly see I would feel that way and there's a fair chance you're right, right.

I love my country please feel free word to two to eleven eighty, one, eight, hundred, two nine five eleven eighty. This'll seem kind of cockeyed, but I've been chew over in my mind. your special boyfriend Andy's fascination with the HVAC systems on mall's right. He's pretty sure that. That if we could just get the right filters up there in the mall the covert thing would disappear, and if we're able to quarantine ourselves away from enough of the human population, currently Andy Cuomo is put in place, quarantine restrictions which affect forty eight percent of the population of the United, states of America something in excess of one hundred and fifty million people can't come here without holding up. A fifty percent of the grandma's in America cannot be visited by New Yorkers without a two week. Hide in the house upon your return, but that's. Not what I talked about I want to about his fixation on malls for whatever reason he wants to kill malls, the stores in okay, and he's got this interesting sort of developing technology in his head about well if we only had filters at. The microns Bob. It's about microns and if we could, if the Cova could go up the call their intake, and if could go through the vent system, and then finally it's being pushed and it gets to. There'd be filter Bob. Filter and it would go either, and the filter would catch the Kovin. It would stay there and in the air that came out. It would be like a a purified far, BOB. It'd be like a it'd be a gashes emission with no, no be no Kovener in there, and we changed the filter periodically, doing our best not to lick it, and thereby we would eliminate covert Bob. Well? Here's the deal. I'm not a I'm not a doctor. Though as I've said for many years ma'am. If you want me to feel for lumps, gladly do so I'm not I'm not a doctor. And so I don't have tickets to the jazz festival, but it's not a big deal I'm not a doctor but think this through with me, okay? What is social distancing? Social distancing is the premise which is probably accurate that inasmuch as this is a disease, spread, airborne and that there's not much of a carrying distance. Social distancing says that for an adult If we stay about six feet away from each other, we're going to be outside of each other's Kovin zone and the likelihood of transmission is very very. Very low now that social distancing turns out, and we'll talk about this later in the program is only about three feet for kids who defunct, but for adults of which you and I are supposedly to It's six feet. Okay, and you and I have for the past four months then men playing by those rules and will continue to do so. So for walking down the mall, six meaning that this little covid can live for six feet in the air right. Well. If I walk in the mall and I've gotTA. Have the hippo filter up on the roof? Let's say that okay. This gives you the covert this time. Okay! 'CAUSE I had it last time, but say you've got Dacoven Okay and you are over at that store which store do they have in malls? I don't know other than Orange Julius from mid Nineteen Ninety S, I can't remember, but so you are over by. Let's say the Orange Julius. Okay, do they still have spencer gifts? Okay well I would obviously be at Spencer. These are two stores from one thousand nine hundred case you were in Lyon. So you are at at at Orange, Julius and you've got the covert you frank, frigging clap monster, and you exhale as you do not twelve to sixteen times a minute while exercising, so you exhale okay, and Cova comes out of you. Now, the COVID has now. We're going to draw a line six feet from your mouth. Okay, that's our social distancing, but dacoven has got to come on your mouth. Okay, your mouth Breather Cova comes out of your mouth. It's SORTA floats around. A little bit hangs out here for a wile catches, a thermal up draft all of a sudden. There's a bit of a suction thing. It's being drawn towards the cold air intake up at the ceiling. Afars are gone so far. Are we six PM? The Cova keeps going up there. It's who sucked into the intake and it goes down the long aluminum ventilation shaft. And then it turns right, and it goes down another long aluminum ventilation shaft, and then finally I'm at some kind of a fan of ice. Like that, and then you here is my magic hippo filter a Cuomo brand right, but but let's say it's not there. Let's go were remove that we're going to be irresponsible and Nico. Van Will Blow right through it. It'll go through the fan. The cooling will take place. Who is Jewish? I brought a sweater and I'll go down this long. Aluminum ventilation duct work, and I'll turn right and I'll go down and have I gone sixty yet. Has This frigging covert social distance jet go down another now on aluminum ventilation shaft, and then it'll break up and split it into three different ones long, and then they'll be like a event and I'll come out and I'll be cold air and I'll be around there. Look at me. The floating refrigerated covert. Let me just ask, have we? has this social distancing rule not kicked in. Cove. It not traveled hundreds of feet instead of six feet. And, so if social distancing is the thing and it is. Then? You don't need a filter Andy. I mean that'd be Nice I. Don't know how much stock you have invested in that. I'm not alleging anything at all. I don't know which donor makes them. I'm not alleging anything at all. I'm not sure what the kickback is not alleging anything at all, but for whatever reason you want to sell gazillions filters. It of course will have no impact whatsoever on the virus load. Because by the time the air gets from your Cova breathing mouth up through the hundreds of feet of ductwork. And then out into the air massive mall where it will float around for who knows long. How long? How far before I inhale it. That Kovic debtor in Hell Right. This is all a joke that he's playing on us back with you.

Is Delusion right so? Really it depends on the amount of air that we're bring in from outside rush. Make up there in the amount of contaminated air that we're getting rid of from building There's GonNa be one of the most important things in controlling. Now if you look at the mall that you? Maybe themselves. Well. Far but Molson evolves themselves in their open space. Areas are taking care of by the mall rooftop units which do majority of the bringing in of fresh air. It the individual source. Themselves have their own euro stop. That would probably need to be fitted out with. Thank? You Sir I. Appreciate It. Steve appreciate see if I just have. I have. Become bored. Also. Here's the thing. It's I can't remember the it's. It's it's. Not Solution, but you know I in liquid would be. We'll be degree of solution. It's dilution that door and I'm trying to think of. How many pieces of air are there in a frigging mall right? Let's let's create some a tiny unit of air air I know is like the molecule. Is that something anyway? The point being how many pieces of air are in the mall, a frigging boatload, okay? How big is a virus? How many viruses are they're going to be? And what's the ratio between pieces of virus? By the way if Ariza molecule typically is and the spaces between them, a virus is a fairly good size molecule DNA with a protein coat. The deal is we got small, though things going on there, and every now and again there'll be a giant massive piece of dust that will flow by comparison. But how many pieces of air do you have? And how many pieces of virus do you have? And what is the ratio or the dilution of virus in the mass or volume rather of air in that mall? Right and What is the likelihood of I'm breathing air from you know that has sufficient concentration of virus to give me the Cova clamp. Right I mean. We have safely gone, told Wegmans. I should start mentioning even by ads around here I. I have been safely going to Walmart for a long time. I have been breathing air. Most of the other people there seemed likewise to breathing air, and yet we have done fine to pretend or presume it would be otherwise at a mall is frigging nuts. I'm for news with the great and not frigging nuts John Halliday on newsradio. WAM eleven eighty. Welcome back my friend, welcome back. Just, a I'm not a FAO G Bashar or anything else like that I. think that he's done. You know a fine job at times, but I think that the public health officials have been. You know repeatedly wrong on this I. Don't think that's necessarily a failing. It's just a fact that this is a the covid of virus and a pandemic about which we are learning as we go, it is sometimes like other similar viruses, and at other times isn't and you know we have been back and forth on a variety of issues, masks, or bad masks or good and you know it is. It's tough to maintain an air of infallibility. When you know the facts on the ground indicate that you know we're. We're making this up as we go along and I don't mean that critically. It's just a process of discovery, but Nonetheless, that's Foudy. yesterday talking to the folks in Washington about the ultimate number of infections, people getting sick, the cases of covert and potential deaths. His quote was. It's going to be very disturbing. He said he I can't I. Don't know how many it's going to be but quote it's going to be very disturbing. Close quote. disturbing is neither a medical scientific term. Right! I ask you. How many cases will there be? And you say I don't know, but it's going to be disturbing. Well. No, I asked you. How many cases there would be an? You have just given me What you believe will be the sociological and the psychological reaction to the number. In and by telling me your projection of what you think, the reaction will be through the power of suggestion. You have helped that reaction to come about. We've just been told by America's top infectious disease doctor that we should be disturbed by whatever the numbers are I. Don't know what they're going to be, but they're going to be very disturbing. It's as if you know. These folks in charge become habituated to hysteria. And that is opposed to now now here's the thing. Again disturbing is not a scientific or medical word, if for a response to that question, how many cases will we have? You might say. I have no way of knowing our projections, however, and we've had some success, and some not success with projections, but our projections currently show that it could be about, and then you give a number, or you give a range, or you say about what we have projected, or you could say It looks like now. Our numbers could be higher than we projected, and they could even be substantially higher than we projected. All of those would be responses that try to approximate an answer to the question presented him. How many cases and deaths will we have? But he didn't do that right. He instead said quote. It's going to be very disturbing. And if you're listening there through the power, suggestion Dr Franchi America's top infectious disease. Doctor just told me that I should crap my pants with fear. It's going to be very disturbing. Really well. If? It's higher than anticipated if it is. If it's you know a really big what some people might be disturbed, but that I mean you have suggested a psychological reaction to whatever the number is, and my thought would be that it's not often. Doctors encouraged hysteria on the part of their patients. I, isn't it? Is there somebody bedside manner? Well. Senator it could be a very large number. It may exceed our projections We may be operating at historic ranges To help prevent that we federal government suggests ABCD to respond to that at the state level. My recommendation would be ABC. Whatever like that I mean you can give information and guidance and help, or you can push the hysteria button and say it's going to be very start whatever it is, you should be very disturbed time for traffic and weather on Newsradio Lebane-. newsradio whammy lemonade weather brought to you by William Muhtar hurt in a car call William Muhtar. It's going to be mostly sunny day high in the lower eighties in. It's sixty nine at eight forty two. You're listening to news radio CAM. Eleven eighty. Pam, glad you called Ma'am welcome to Newsradio wham eleven eighty man. God you Bob I m alarmed that the politicians are just micromanaging our house, and it's in outside of most of their expertise I was a nurse in working in Rochester, but visiting family and Toronto in two thousand three. With the first SARS. And the one missing piece of information. That's not generally out there. Is the precautions for the AIDS and the nurses in the institutions to cover the plumbing systems the quickest way to your bloodstream by breathing air. It's through your eyes and your nose into the lungs and the ice directly into the bloodstream. You're less likely to become ill if you're eating the virus. But if you flush the toilet and it's open, it comes through the eyes, and you breathe it into the lungs. I don't hear anything in the general public warning these AIDS nurses and other healthcare. Professionals with the fire hose system with an open toilet. into the BEDPAN spraying it everywhere. I don't hear that warning, so I'm generally calling to say watch out there the lowest thousand line of the healthcare system and the least protected. And it disgusts me when I hear the likes of Cuomo, Schumer. And the other no it alls, who are dangerous there just dangerous and I find it insulting so there, I? Say. Thank, you ma'am. You services a nurse back in the day. The CDC says that right now we don't know whether the virus in feces and urine is infectious ripe. We don't know if you can catch coverted through you know human waste. Of course, one of the issues about human waste would be is that we tend to be around our own waste and. and not other people's wastes again you know if you are cleaning up after someone or if you're caring for someone who does use a Bedpan or as you know, soil themselves, or whatever and you're a healthcare worker, you know something along those lines. You certainly could potentially have exposure to the waste of other people, but again currently the CDC I just looked it up. Doesn't know there. There seemed to be no indication that they're that. Feces Urine are infectious. Completely different subject for a half a moment. No, there's no time we'll be back with you. On newsradio eleven eighty newsradio eleven, eighty weather brought to you by William Muhtar hurt in a car. Call, William Muhtar. It's going to be mostly sunny today. A high in the lower eighties, sixty nine at eight fifty, and you're listening to Newsradio wham eleven eighty. John I appreciate you calling Sir welcome to Newsradio lamb eleven eighty. Yeah Hi Bob I. Just WanNa. Thank Bonnie for her expertise in poop and fart particles. Good John You can call your mother. And Tell, her. That today. Your college education paid off those checks. She wrote all those years. Have you into quite a man? There's no doubt about that. Today is the first day of the presidency of Elizabeth Paul at Nazereth. College she taking the place? Of Dan Brave men. Who was there for fifteen years after thirty years almost at Syracuse University and before that? a civil rights activist lawyer if you will, he was as a teenager at Martin Luther King's. Dream speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Wonders if today? such a speech held in the shadow of a man who astoundingly has become a focus of the anti statue crowd. Boston. It's arts. Council has decided unanimously to take down a statue of Abraham. Lincoln at the University of Wisconsin at Madison a petition signed by an overwhelming majority of of student body. At least in terms of numbers. has called for removing Abraham. Lincoln Statue. he, it called him a quote, a singlehanded symbol of white supremacy. Close quote Abraham Lincoln so you know you may remember something different from when you took social studies. That's probably because you're a racist saw. Good luck with that. statues are coming down. Here's a story. Very briefly of no particular point, but it takes me a little. And it was the other night it was reported on social media by Scott Barstool, the tremendous overnight cameraman for a special news people. And there was a situation I don't recall whether it was a car, wreck or shooting, or but it was one of those deals where there are lots of flashing lights in in crime scene tape and a cameraman standing there taking it all in. and. There had also been a situation where a baby raccoon had been hit and killed by a car, and it was. There in in the road on the periphery of where this you know police. Event is taking place. And Scott Bar. Sto observes that there is the mother raccoon, and at least one additional baby raccoon, and that the additional baby raccoon is on the side of the road hiding. If you will under a car and the mother raccoon keeps coming back out into the road she's checking on the baby raccoon that has been hit and killed, and she clearly is trying to you know. Get say come along along. We have to leave and the deal. Is that out in the road? That are cars passing and the mother raccoon is you know is? Clearly in jeopardy well, this scenario develops, and it's observed by Scott. Barstool, Spectrum News, and he also notices that very shortly after as this mother raccoon is sort of you know. Not, really darting in and out, but she's moving in falling back moving out and she she wants to go check on that baby, and just as Scott Barstool was able to. Observe and and ascertain. What's happening here, right? This mother is concerned about her baby and you know she's endangering herself, and she could be hit herself and I and leave this other raccoon baby an orphan to to die itself possibly over a couple of days of starvation. in in embarrassed reports that. Rochester police officer in the blink of an eye looking in recognizing walked over to where the baby raccoon was dead in the road, and picked it up and brought it over to the side of the road, and laid it down out of traffic so that the mother could check on it and and learn whatever she had to learn, and and do so without endangering herself, and consequently her other baby raccoon, and you know this is not some big shattering thing. but it was an instant act of compassionate action. The officer saw and the officer understood and the officer cared and the officer acted. and that's a little bit of an insight into human nature, the best human nature. And maybe if you look at what that person does for a living, it's an insight into law enforcement. Compassionate action. What we? It is good feel compassion. It is useless to feel compassion at does not drive us to render relief. Those. Even. So anyway again that story reported by Scott Barstool are still spectrum, news. We've got our own with great. Todd, how we'll be back when he's done. It's almost the fourth of July and this is newsradio wham eleven eighty.

Arise, Get Thee Out of This Bondage!

"The following program is sponsored by the National Prayer Chapel ooh right spirit within me. A don how so go. John writes Free in your the Talk Renewal Array Eh. Writes a a WHO Long Guy restoring the joy lies on the suit career. He the Oh God and renew right spree. Closer is worse free Rights when a passed away from my presence Gina in this spirit Arise get thee out of this bondage. That was the word of God to Jacob. It's the word of God to you today. Many of you have as I. I have lived under the heel of legalism. We're simply doing the best you can do with what you have and in that place you finally settle into a comfortable kind of misery. And if I were to ask you are you in any kind of bondage you would say no. I'm not in bondage. I just want more of God. Well how long have you been wanting more of God years what about you. Get More of God. The answer's simple but it's profound. It's because you're in bondage and until bandages recognized you're going to remain in that bondage some of you in the bondage of the job you hate your job. You are mistreated by your boss. You are not respected and you feel like you could be much more than you are. Some of you are in the bondage of financial ruin struggling just to get through struggling. Always Robbing Peter to pay Paul in Bondage Pitch. Some of you are emotional bondage in a marriage. That's not working. You don't know what to do you struggle to take care of yourself to defend yourself but the marriage isn't resolved you can't afford financially to leave you can't emotionally find a way to break through. You're miserable you need some kind of resolution urine bondage some of your single single and you want to be married you WANNA partner to walk with you but year after year. You've had no one to walk with you in bondage. So the human heart begins to just adapt to the situation. I remember my father for many years. He was a door to door to door salesman with the WTI Raleigh company where he would have a route in every two months he would get back to his customers and he would sell them the farm insecticides and the the all the things that wti Raleigh called for home life and for farm use and dad hated it. He was not an extrovert. He was an introvert dead. Why are you doing this? He said because the bills have to be paid and I'm responsible will some years after that dad couldn't stand the job anymore and he was out in the garage afternoon and it workshop for him yet a bench and all the tools and he was a little bored. I wanted to find something to do. That would be useful and he saw three old Jackson the corner. I draw jacks that. He had left there because because they no longer worked and he said I wonder how hard it would be to fix those so he took a jack apart and discovered the the problem with the Jack was that the inside leather had simply worn out. We said I can fix that. So he took the leather out such such as it was and used as a pattern and cut a piece of leather out of an old shoe. Put it back in but the Jack back together and it worked perfectly and he said wow I I wonder how many people in this town have jacks that. They can't use and so he began to gas stations. The shops were they repaired. Cars asking tiffany hydraulic Jackson. Don't work well yes. Of course they did. They had all pile of him. Dad began and repair those hydraulic jacks. He found a place. In Cleveland he lived in Greenville. Pennsylvania found a place in Cleveland Ohio. That would sell him the parts and so he would drive to Cleveland. He by the parts and he'd come back and for a fraction of what they would cost. If they sent the Jack in he he was able to repair it. He said to me Ray. I wish I'd started this business years ago. I could've of opened a whole shop I could have sold hydraulic jacks. Nobody in town is doing it. But I'm too old now. So until the day he died died he repaired. Hydraulic Jackson made more money doing that than you'd ever made in his life and he was happy we get into this bondage of doing what we know living with what we know talking to people that we know never hearing the word of God come to us. Jacob was under the heel of of Laban and he was being crushed if an animal would steal like a wolf would would kill one of the lambs Jacob had had to replace that limit his cost now finally he was building his own heard but lay been in ten times changed his his arrangement with him. Always trying to get the upper hand and cut Jacob off. Jacob was miserable. You had a rich Daddy. But he couldn't go home. He had nothing. What was he going to do? Finally the word of God came to Jake Eh and the word of God was arise. Get Thee out of this bondage. Go back home in other words and the Lord said I'll be with you. I'll go with you now. You remember the arrangement that the Lord had made with him and at the bureau beginning when he was in that desert play slaying his head on a on a stone member Berwick. God had said to him it was incredible miracle he saw a louder stretching up to heaven and of course was Jesus said he was that ladder and the promise was let me read it for you. See she'll be as the dust of the earth. Thou shalt spread abroad to the West in the east to the North into the south and in the and in the ice each all the families of the Earth be blessed and behold I am with the and I will oh keep the place whether thou ghost and will bring the again into this land for. I will not leave the until I've done that which I've spoken to the so the promise of God was. I'm not GonNa Leave Jacob in that place. Well that's the promised each of us the promise of Jesus to us. Now Jacob is converted. He's a new man. He's under the care. Direct Care of God and God is walking with him. But somehow after twenty years of bondage he can not get himself out of this bondage. And you may sense that you can't get yourself out of your bondage. And if you just settled down and are comfortable in that bondage individ- you'll die in that bondage and I know many of you today listening to this broadcast. You know you're in bondage bondage to sin to wickedness bondage to all manner of hardship and wickedness. You've been through a very tough time. You need deliverance. But you're not going to have deliverance until you can hear God himself speaking to you saying a rise. Get the out of this bondage. Now the truth is you can serve God year after year in this hard and legal way you can wish things could be different. But you're we're not going to be able to change anything until there is a crisis in your soul and that crisis will come to reading the scriptures and praying and listening to messages like this to pilgrim's progress progress and as that crisis arises in your soul. You're going to have have to hear God speak to you now. I I wish that just reading books and listening sermons would somehow cause you to here. I wish you could hear me but I know for you to change to get out of that dead place that that church where you're not satisfied you're not being offended. You're just comforted into your bondage. I know for you to get out of that to get out of that. Works situation to get out of that financial situation to get out of the bondage. That you're in. You are going to have to hear the very voice Voice of God calling you to leave that bondage. You're going to have to get to God. And by the Holy Spirit he's going to have to speak directly into your soul and he is willing to do that for you if you we'll let him but it means you can no longer be comfortable in your bondage. You can no longer comfort yourself with those miserable words. I might as well just keep doing this because there isn't anything else for me and that's a lie from the devil. There is a way out in the way out is by the Holy Spirit as has he begins to speak to your heart and tell you exactly what he wants you to do now. When Jacob got this message he did not not go to Laban and say Laban I need to leave and go back to my home tatty done that he would have been consulting his duty he would have been consulted would the law and he would have only gotten into deeper bondage because he would have been shamed by Laban threatened by Laban the scriptures say let the dead bury the dead let the dead religious take care of the dead religious forms? Please hear me when I say this you are called the follow. Jesus Christ nod naught denomination. Not another person not your religious heritage. You are called the followed. Jesus Christ the person of Jesus and you're going to have to cry out to the Holy Spirit and acknowledge the hunger that is in your soul for more of God and get to the very root of that cry and your heart art and say I must have more. This is not enough. I'm dying here and God will answer. Cod will answer now. I'll tell you what will happen if you make that decision and you decide to be free as soon as you begin to take any action. Actions steps the devil is going to come after you with everything. He has available the moment. You set your face toward Mount Gilead the place of deliverance. The amount of healing balm for your soul. Some evil spirit is going to chase you. He's going to entrap you if he can back into the bondage. He's going to tell you you're rash. You're being presumptuous. You're aiming to hi. You're acting without proper council. Anything he has to say Keke you in the old rot. Some of you've been in those old Retz for many years rehearse and perhaps you even given up and you just keep plowing ahead and undying more each day and wishing you could hear from God you know what I want in my life I wanna be able to hear directly from God about what he wants me to do and be and I wanna be with people who hear from God i WanNa be in wonderful relationship with people who hear from God. Oh it's a strange thing. I'm a little shy of saying this to you but I'm going to. I have seen wives I've seen husbands. Who seem absolutely determined to get out of the bondage? The one wife my late wife Jan was tired of the bondage of struggling financial loss. Her of being miserable in her job I had taken the the action of ceasing. All of my outward work and I was simply waiting before God from early morning until late at night. I had tried everything I could to get a job. I was in California. The mortgage payment was do on the house. I was going to be visited all of the electricity. Everything was going to be shut down and and I was many hours every day just on my face crying out to God and she was working fulltime fulltime for physician who was establishing of Health Club at the Anaheim Community Hospital and as she was in a business meeting that day she looked up and fully awake she saw a demonic form. Rise up behind this Hindu doctor doctor and she was terrified and she said this is who I'm doing business with and right there at that moment but she resigned her position as director of this new operation. She resigned right there and said doctor. I can't continue with you because there is this demonic form that you are worshiping and he'd already. You told her that he had in his house a prayer room where he would offer food and libations to his demon God and get directions for what he should do in his business. She said I can't be a part of this anymore and she ran she left. She came home and instead of saying Ray. I'm leaving this marriage. It's too hard. We are in such a hard place place. I can't continue to be married to you. I need my life back that I had before I met you when I was a top top level administrator in the Broward County school system I need to go back to Florida and get my job back. I need to get my career going. I need to take care of myself because you're broke. I just quit my job. We're going to be evicted from from this house. The bills are not being paid. She could have said that that's not what she he said. She said she said. Ray I need to come and join you and I need to do the same thing you're doing. I need to search after God. Now she had basically never read the scriptures. She was literally a new Christian. She said I'm going to come. And I'm going to pray with you and I'm going to search the scriptures with you and windass stand with you that God alone will deliver us. Aw I I look at that and I'm so astonished because everything in the human flesh would say she should've run but she didn't instead. She turned toward me and said Ray. I'm going to walk with you through this Valley of the shadow of death. I don't know how we will survive this but I'm going to walk through this. I will not be in this bondage for one one more moment. I gave her a warm hug and said come. Join me on the floor. And let's pray and we began crying out together before God ten twelve hours a day. It was a report order on our car. Everything was at the other end. There was nothing we could do to save ourselves. It was utterly impossible but see God specializes in delivering out of Bondage Age and the story was very simply. There came a knock on our door. There were no groceries in the house. We had even used the last of the ketchup. To make tomato made a soup. There was nothing in our house and there was a man at the door. And he said Do you need groceries. I said Oh yes. And they went to his car and he brought in sixteen bags except groceries. Shortly after that after we had eaten a wonderful feast we were again on our faces before God thanking him for the incredible deliverance. He had just brought out for us. But we knew we were still very deep in trouble and we knew the only answer was going to be found not in separating from one another not in divorce because it was so hard and because we were so scared no the answer. The Lord gave us came at the knock of the door and there was a man that I had met at the mall. All the Palm Springs Mall. He said Pastor. I've been told by the spirit of God to take you to meet an attorney. Would you go with me. May I said yes. Of course. He said we'll come now. I walked out with him got in his car and we drove to an attorney's office and that attorney set back in his chair. After some polite chit-chat he said pastor. What can I do for you? I said I have no idea. I don't know why I'm here. He looked at me. He was surprised and he began to laugh. He said Pastor. Do you need money I said. Oh yes indeed. I do need money. He went to a safe and he pulled out a briefcase he opened condemn and in the briefcase. Quarter of a million dollars worth of precious gems. He said I bought this some years ago. And I. I need to liquidate it pastor. I'm going to put this in your hands. I'd like you to go and sell these gyms for me. I said I have no knowledge edge of any gems. He said look. They're all in plastic bags with the carrot way and the price she said. Okay so we watch the next morning and the repo man did not come to the House that morning and we had just enough gas to drive for Marino Valley California Nia to Barstow California and we drove there. We didn't know where we were going. We prayed as as we left the House and said Lord you direct us. We'll take whatever road you tell us the take. We don't know where to go or what to do to sell these gyms it's in your hands Lord and they're outside of bar. Sto was a huge sign in encampment saying gem sale they were common in that part of the country we drove in. We went the largest. Jim Dealer I was terrified carrying this briefcase with a quarter of a million dollars worth of very valuable gems. I went to the largest tent. Display spoke with the owner. And said I have gyms for sale. Would you be interested. He said Oh yes. Come by after the show tonight and I have a motorhome outback coming. Come and see me. I'd like to see your gems so I did. And that night. He purchased fifty thousand dollars just over fifty thousand dollars worth of of gems and he paid cash. I went back to the attorney the next morning and I gave him the fifty thousand dollars plus and he in turn wrote out a check for me of fifteen percent. That was my commission now. He plays several other gems. Very valuable gyms with me and said you've done so well why don't you sell these as well and so I left the gym case with him and I took these very precious sapphires and other stones and I went to Leeds Jewelry Store in Palm Springs Brings California and I put these gyms on consignment with them now. With the money we had received moved I was able to pay all of the back bills and it was able to cover the rent. The mortgage God had delivered us but now we needed out of the bondage of California because God was saying go back to Washington D.. We see that's where he told me. I would minister when I was just a high school student. We had no money to move it was we check the U. Haul. It was three thousand dollars at that time to rent a u haul truck the largest and trailer to the car. I want to tell you. We went back to prayer and got a phone call from from the jewelry store. The largest gem had just they just sold it to a family in La Hoya California. This was twenty seven Carat Sapphire gorgeous one for royalty. With that money we were able to pay off all of the bills. Were still do that. We incurred and enough money to move back to Washington. DC to wait before God again. No I tell you this story simply say the the Lord said to US arise get thee out of this bondage and I said how Lord and we waited upon the Lord now. Some wives lives in some husbands would have done something very different. They would have looked at the difficult circumstances they would have collected every dollar. They could collect from mm-hmm their spouse and they would have left and they would've said I'm out of here. I'm not doing this anymore. I'm going my own way. And of course they would go their own way into the deepest kind of bondage and the Lord would not bless them he would strip them amount of all that they had and bring them into an even deeper place of bondage. I've watched this over and over and over but now I want you to hear me. This is the wondrous Bercy of God that when God comes on a promise that he will carry you and he has promised almost that for every person who has converted and who comes into his yoke not of bondage each but a freedom and now he begins the process after conversion. There is the two step process. There is the conversion where we leave our known sin. There's a place where we confess our sin where we get right with God and then as we follow him it puts us into bondage to the law some call at the place of the desert the desert journey for me it was a long desert journey a long desert journey and for some of us and for me that desert journey has not yet ended but but in that process God has dealt deeply with my heart in one of the gifts that I have had was that the Holy Spirit came upon me and entered into me when I was a senior in college and even though I did not follow as he commanded he was with me and opened up and freed me from bondage after bondage bandage after bondage but because I had no one to teach me the ways of Christ I went back into bondage after bondage so some of you have been converted but you have not been baptized in the Holy Spirit and so he is walking with you but he is not in you. Some of you like me were baptized in the Holy Spirit. But not according to your expectations and yet remain in some forms of bondage yet remained in some forms of bondage and I am not going to continue remaining in that bondage. I will be free because Jesus is opening the door. And he is releasing me. Jacob has heard the Lord say get out of this bondage but jit but laban chases him down searches everything that he has and then he doesn't interesting thing. He gives Jacob a kiss and his daughters. A kiss. As long as you're under the law and you're in that bondage under the law the law is very hard on you but when you determined to be free the law will turn and kiss you doc and as you go on your way the angels of God will meet you. Angels of God met Jacob and these angels of God prepared him for the final victory. That was going to come in his life. Now don't mistake. Shake me he was going to have some hard times after this he was going to go back into a kind of bondage but he was free and the angels of God were greeting him and he was going to be carried from that point forward in his life by the presence of God.
