"And then is there a story behind you being called as a stake president? Yeah. And probably it's long enough to merit its own podcast. Yeah. So I'll give you the clip notes version. Suffice to say, I thought I was kind of in the clear when it's time for a state reorganization came up back in July or June, beginning of June, I look, I'd only been in the mission presidency two years. It's a three-year call. You serve the length of the time with the mission president. And I had some really great men that I recommended that could be really good for that, who are now my counselors in the stake presidency. And it just kind of, boy, every other calling, Kurt, I've kind of had a feeling or a sense that some change was coming. I just didn't know what it was. This one blindsided me and caught me off guard. So it took me the first month just to kind of settle into some imposter syndrome and figure out what I'm doing here. But anyway, it's been a fun ride for four months. I've loved it so far. That's cool. Anything worth noting as far as just like walking into that calling, like any surprises or you're just like calibrating yourself and your effort to that role? Yeah. A couple of surprises. One, I'd been a counselor before in a stake presidency, I've been a counselor then in a mission presidency. I learned that I'm a really good wingman. Like I'm super good at being a counselor. Give me a leader with a vision and I'll go make that thing happen. I'll be the best support in the world. But to actually be the guy with the keys that has to kind of make some decisions and I just thought, wow, I'm going to have to really tune in. Like I'm going to have to just up the ante on revelation and just be really in tune and be open to what God wants me to do because I've got to make some really kind of difficult, challenging calls. I also realized I didn't know what a stake president did, despite the fact that I was a counselor to one for five years, I never really understood. And now that I, when I got the download from the former stake president of all the things he was working on that weren't part of working with organizations, I thought, wow, that's a huge ministry. It's a lot of ministering. So it's all about the one. Love it. And then in your day job, you continued to coach or, I mean, how do you, how do you describe your job? Yeah, it's funny you asked that. So I launched my business eight years ago, we've scaled up and hired some full-time executive coaches who do leadership training and coaching, and it's freed me up to have a lot of flexibility in my schedule to the point that I didn't really make a dollar for about the first six weeks of being a stake president. I was working like 30 hour weeks as a stake president, just pouring myself into it, trying to kind of learn. And one day I woke up and I had this really clear prompting of Dustin, you still gotta make money. Like there's gotta be balance in all things. It's not good to be all in on stake president. And so I told my wife, I think it's time for me to go make a dollar again. And she's like, yeah, you need to make some money. So yeah, I'm spending time coaching and training still and doing workshops and then balancing that of course, with family time and with, with stake president calls. So, so far so good. We've been able to kind of strike that balance. Well, you're definitely one of those names and figures I want to have a sort of cycling through here every, every so often. So hopefully isn't our last time we talk on this platform and cause you always have just a perspective both from your, your day job, but also from your Sunday job, your Sunday callings or whatnot that really, and you do a great job sort of mending those two things together in a helpful way. So maybe just introduce your, the topic that we hope to explore today. Yeah, we, and I kind of thought of a couple of things that have been helpful to me since I became a stake president that are leadership principles. And one really rose to the surface because it's really made a lot of sense lately. The concept is called the law of the lid, the law of the lid. And I'll tell you kind of how I discovered it. You know, a big gap in most organizations that we serve is that their senior leaders come in and they hire an organization like ours and they say, Hey, we need you to train our mid-level leaders. If our managers could figure this out, we'd be more effective. So we swoop in and we train all the mid-level leaders when in reality it's the senior leaders that need the training, right? And so we create this training gap where the mid-level managers all have their own language, they're highly trained and the senior leaders continue to kind of struggle along. They don't speak the same language now, they don't have the same level of training. And so a guy named John Maxwell coined a phrase or a maxim for this called the law of the lid. And the law of the lid essentially says that an organization will rise no higher than the effectiveness of its leadership. In other words, leaders are the cap or the lid on an organization's effectiveness. So if you're hiring trainers to come in and train your mid-level, but you're not getting any training yourself, you're going to become the lid on that organization's growth. And so this is kind of, I discovered this a number of years ago and we've applied it continuously in our business practices, but I started to see some application in the church as well. And I thought, wow, you had a lot of literally plays out. One obvious connection that I saw is back when I was in the stake presidency about a decade ago, we started to teach this to our bishops because we noticed that bishops would really want their members to be praying more, studying their scriptures more, fasting more fervently or with more intention, going to the temple, serving their callings. And yet we found that sometimes bishops or bishoprics wouldn't be doing those things themselves, right? They're too busy, Dustin. They're too busy to do it. We just don't have the members. And so we started to teach this and we said, hey, this is called the law of the lid. You can't ask people to do something you won't do. The ward or the stake or the relief society will rise no higher than the effectiveness of its leadership. And so that's kind of really where this came to be. And you know, this, I just was at lunch with a guy talking about, you know, church leadership and whatnot. And I truly believe this, but I also recognize my bias as the, you know, quote unquote leadership guy as you know, in the church and I'm the host of the podcast, right? But really there's only one problem. This comes from Sterling W. Seal that he always said, there's only one problem in the world and it's leadership. Like if we can get the leadership right. Like it's amazing what problems just magically seem to fix themselves, right? And so it's so easy to look externally as the leader and being like, well, I can give you a list of problems, but it's hard to look internally at times realizing that we're sometimes stimulating those problems to exist. Yeah, I love a quote. I think Warren Bennis said it, but I might be wrong on that, but the statement is the hardest person you'll ever have to lead is yourself. And when I get in a coaching session, you know, oftentimes people say, well, if this person would do this or if this person would do that, and this happens in the church, right? If this leader would do this or if this person would pay more attention or if this person was more organized and yet the hardest person you'll ever have to lead is you. If you just would focus on yourself, I oftentimes tell clients I can only coach the person in the room. The other people aren't here, it's just you. And so how can you become more effective? How can you increase your personal effectiveness? And if we can just solve, like you said, that leadership dilemma, a lot of things clear up. Another sort of dynamic that comes to mind, and maybe you can bring some more context to this, or that it's so easy for members who aren't in the leadership positions to hear the law of the lid and be like, oh, Dustin, absolutely. I mean, I see how inept my bishop is. And you're right, we can't succeed in organization because he just doesn't get it, right? And so then we use that as an excuse of us not leading ourselves, right? As if we're the victim to the law of the lid, when in reality, I truly believe that there's no adjustment of the handbook needed, no policy, no program needed for us to flourish as the kingdom of God, as the restored church. Even the members have a law of the lid that we don't have to sit around and wait for our local leaders to discover the law of the lid to find success and see change and transformation happen in our own community. Yeah, the law of the lid trickles down. And it trickles down to every individual. You could say that a family will rise no higher than the effectiveness of the parents. You could say that an individual will rise no higher than their own personal effectiveness. In other words, if we're not improving, we're flatlining or declining. And so that's what the law of the lid is really all about. How do you keep improving? You don't wait for somebody to listen to podcasts and start to improve. You start the improvement with yourself in your own sphere. And that can be just you. It could be your family. It could be the organization you lead. It could be just simply in your calling. But the law of the lid has some serious power. Yeah. So where do we start? Or what's the next step as far as unpacking this and applying this in our own life? Yeah. So an interesting thing happened. So I'm released from the stake presidency. I go to become a branch president of a Spanish unit and I'm thinking about this law of the lid. And so we're all in on scripture study and prayer and fasting and tithing and all these things. And an interesting thing occurred. I had a really hard first year as a branch president. It kicked my butt. I mean, that was probably the hardest calling we ever served in. And the reason why it was so challenging is because I was sitting with individuals and families who had really complex issues, really difficult things. They would come in to me for counseling and to work with them. And I just would feel so like empty. Like, how do I help these people? Like, how do I even begin to solve somebody whose marriage is falling apart or they can't war on me? It really taxed me. And I thought I started to feel like, wow, I'm ineffective. And these people are on the log jam to their effectiveness. Right. So about a year goes by of struggling through this. And I'm talking with our stake president one day and he says, Dustin, you seem really like weighed down. You seem really kind of, I don't know, tired. You've only been doing this a year. Buckle up. You got a few more years. Don't give up on me yet. And I said, man, this has been really tough, president. Like, I just I'm really struggling. He said, tell me about that. I said, you know, people are coming in with these really big problems and I just don't know how to help them solve those problems. I'm trying this and I'm trying that. And he listened patiently and then he said, Dustin, I'll tell you what's going on. The problem is that you're trying to solve their problems. I said, what do you mean? He said, they're not your problems to solve. You are becoming the lid because you don't have the ability to solve their problems. They're not yours to solve. I said, oh, yeah. Say more about that. Whose are they? He said, it's not yours to solve. It's the saviors. Only Christ can help them solve their problem. And I thought about that and I thought, yeah, that feels good. How do I do that? And he said, you've got to point them to the savior. Like, yeah, what does that mean? He said, you literally point them to the savior. You listen to them. You listen to their thoughts. You ask them questions and then you point them to the savior. You point them to prayer. You point them to the scriptures for answers. You point them to fasting. You point them to temple. You point them to places where the savior is and you let him solve their problem. You let him work through their problem with them. And you're the guide. You stand alongside them. You don't leave them. But it's not your problem to solve. The reason why that was powerful to me, Kurt, is because I realized as long as leaders believe that it's up to them to solve the problems, you are always going to be the lid. In fact, it's a little bit of a scary concept to think that the bishop or the Relief Society president is the lid on their organization. That means that your group will be no more effective than you. That's heavy. Yeah. But what if we look to the one person who doesn't have a lid? What if we say, wow, Jesus Christ never had a lid. He has no lid. And if we point people to him, the people we have stewardship over will become way better than us. They will progress way faster. They will rise above us even as leaders because they're following the true leader, the savior who doesn't have a lid. Yeah, that's so powerful. And, you know, this is the this is really where like the rubber hits the road with what we believe in our testimony, like it's easy to sort of be the leader that stands up and testifies of Christ or makes it, you know, even or any member of the church making a comment in Sunday school that, you know, Christ is the great healer and whatnot. But so often in application, we'll remove him from the equation with the best intentions. Right. It's like, OK, you know, I've seen the bishop and the bishop's thinking, well, you know, let's get you some good therapy and here's, you know, this book and that book. And why don't we meet together? Have you prayed? Maybe try praying three times a day or, you know, we sort of get trapped in these these efforts, these behaviors, these resources. But do we really believe that Jesus is the healer, that he can really do the healing? And of course, you know, this isn't some backwards way of saying that they don't need therapy or that, of course, those resources that are needed. But to really say, like, I'm going to point you to the savior, I don't entirely know what that looks like for you. But let's work together to figure out not necessarily your problem, but how to get you pointed to the savior. Right. Yeah. And as you're as you're sharing that, a thought comes to mind that we oftentimes point to the mechanism or the vehicle as the thing that's going to help them heal. Prayer, scripture study, the temple. I even said this just now, but it's not actually those things that provide the healing. It's like we're leaving out the key words, which is pray to God, study the scriptures to hear his voice, go to the temple to feel his presence. It's him that's going to heal, not the mechanism or the vehicle. And so this became really powerful for me in that presidency. I started to think, OK, the key here is that I've got to help these individuals hear God's voice. And the way to hear his voice is, again, prayer, studying the scriptures to hear his word, attending the temple, going to church, seeking revelation. It's that quote from President Nelson. Right. In the coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directoring, comforting, constant influence of the Holy Ghost. And why is that? Because if we're turning to man, if we're turning to our leaders, if we're turning to our sisters who lead us to solve our problems, they won't get solved. Only Christ can solve them. And that was revelatory for me. It kind of turned everything in that presidency. And I started going into these meetings, I started to share with people and a couple of really powerful things happened. First thing that happened is people hated it.

"And just leadership in general leading our faculty is that it's grounded in proverbs, which is just, it's just hundreds and hundreds of nuggets of practical wisdom. Can a man take fire to his bosom and not be burned, right? Where there is no wood the fire goes out. So don't, you know, enable yourself to get burned by bringing bad things close to you, destructive things close to you. And don't gossip and slander. If people are gossiping, you know, don't add any wood to the fire, just walk away. And all those kinds of things that make so many toxic workplaces and unhappy families. And they're just these real simple principles and scripture. And that's what creates that consistency character integrity, even on top of the here's what Maxwell says about how to run something. Yeah, so let's talk a little bit more about the curriculum and kind of how you have it laid out. So just articulate what that looks like if I'm a student. Yeah, I mean, well, like I said, I have to, first of all, set the set the notion here that I can't hand you, I can't hand you a leadership, you know, a box. And if you take this box, then that makes you a leader. If leader, if leadership is character and wisdom, you have to work hard and develop that. Those kind of things. And you have to earn, if you're looking for the highest notion is to get the title, really earning your leadership. You're looking around. And so you can think about it this way too. We talk about leadership is being something it's not doing something. So one of the dangers I think with Maxwell as much as I enjoy reading Maxwell and Warren bennis and some of these kind of things is these people is, you know, if the tips and trick become the thing, then you're just acting. Right. So you can act like a leader and it'll work for a while, but that doesn't mean that you are being a leader. It's technically technique. Okay, that's interesting. Yeah, that's great. A great 100%. I do think there's a notion of while you are going down that path. There is a little bit of acting as if. There is that develops people into leaders over time. And I think that it's valuable to, yeah, work on yourself, adopt those techniques, adopt those things, learn about those things, also so you can recognize them, go down that path. But you will be found out as a fraud. If that's all you're doing. We talk about this. One of the earlier one of our early discussions in classes was Hitler, a good leader. And so then we have to break this all down and I set them up and I start with this whole, I describe a general person like Hitler, I won't take the time to do it now, but talk about the accomplishments of getting things done. And if leadership is measured by effectiveness only in terms of getting things done, you end up with people drawing to themselves processes and accomplishments that serve themselves.

War hours not extending a forever. Exit president biden described the us pullout as a quote extraordinary success noting. The us helped over one hundred. Twenty thousand people flee off on a stan. Since the taliban seized power two and a half weeks ago he called for a new era and us foreign policy we turn the page on. The foreign policy is guided nash. Our nation last two decades. We've got to learn from our mistakes to me or two that are paramount. I we must set missions with clear achievable goals not ones. We'll never reach in second mistake. Clearly focused on the fundamental national security interest of the united states to america. This decision about afghanistan is not just about afghanistan and spout ending an era of major military operations to remake other countries. When i was running for president. I made a commitment to the american people that i would end this war today. I've honored that commitment. It was time to be honest with the american people again. We no longer had a clear purpose in an open ended mission in afghanistan after twenty years of war enough ghanistan. I refused to send another generation. America's sons and daughters to fight a war should have ended long ago after more than two trillion dollars. Spent afghanistan costs that researchers brown university estimated would be over three hundred million dollars a day for twenty years. Neff ghanistan for two decades. Yes the american people here. This three hundred million dollars a day for two decades you take the number of one trillion as many say. That's still a one hundred fifty million dollars a day for two decades what have we lost consequential terms of opportunities. I refuse to continue to war. That was no longer in the service of the vital national interests of our people. The most of all after eight hundred thousand america's afghanistan. I've traveled that whole country. Brave and honorable service after twenty thousand seven hundred and forty four american servicemen and women injured and the loss of two thousand four hundred sixty one american personnel including thirteen. Lives lost just this week. I refused opened another decade of warfare in afghanistan. we've been a nation two long at war through twenty years all today. you've never known. And america piece president biden. Speaking on tuesday where we're joined today by phyllis bennis author and fellow at the institute for policy studies author of many books including before and after us foreign policy and the war on terrorism. Phyllis if you can respond to president biden's address talking about ending this forever war and stopping a forever exit. You know what i mean. I think there were a number of things that president biden said in his speech that were both true and important the most important of which was that it was right and important to get out. He didn't say of course that it was wrong to have gone in in the first place in a war. That was illegal. That was not authorized by the united nations or self defense That violated international law that justified and normalized terrorism across the understanding of this country. But it was right to get out the huge problems in terms of how they out how the withdrawal happened. He acknowledged only barely which is a huge problem. But i think that keeping the focus on the significance of ending the war was very important particularly because he was willing to acknowledge really focus on the economic cost as well as the human cost those figures from brown university which my colleagues at the national priorities project have been using for years. We've struggled to get those into national consciousness having that being said by the president twice that it's three hundred million dollars a day. Two trillion dollars is more than anybody can even imagine how much money was wasted on that war so that was very important. He implied that this was the end of the global war on terror. I think that was something that is clearly not true the. Us is still waging war in a host of other countries including iraq. For who's war. The afghanistan war was really Initiated in the first place it raises the question whether he his own view is that the. Us war policy is shifting away from wars against so-called terrorism towards potential wars with china russia. The the rise of the new cold war tensions with china are very very serious. He didn't reflect on that in this speech but again it was very important. He spoke of the legitimacy and the significance of pulling out. I think we should be clear. There's a lot of talk. And i think it's very justified about afghans feeling abandoned by the united states because of the nature of this chaotic and insufficient withdrawal. And all of that is true. I think what's also true. Is that the united states. Have abandoned the people of outs ghanistan long before this withdrawal. They abandoned the people of coniston when they occupied their country when they imposed a government that was based on us. Understandings of what government should look like and have nothing to do with the history with the political culture of of afghans themselves. They abandoned women when after twenty years of us war and occupation afghanistan is still number one in infant mortality in the whole world. Meaning it's the worst place in the world for a woman to give birth and half. Her child live to her first birthday. You know this is what abandonment of women looks like so. I think that we need to be talking about a new era. Indeed we need a new era of refugee protection. We need a new era of turning away from spending fifty three cents of every discretionary federal dollar directly on the military. We need to move away from all of that. We need to move away from any notion that a war waged for vengeance and we should be clear. This was never about justice. This was never about bringing the perpetrators to justice. This was about vengeance and about preparing the people of this country for going to war in a much more dramatic and urgent and in fact worse way in many ways in afghanistan just two years later iraq. So i the as.

"Amy, How did how did your staff pick all these great places? You know, we, um we thought about what would be the perfect way to celebrate. You know the summer coming out of the pandemic, And it was really the dishes in Chicago that have endured. We Book. Traditions that were, you know, has been available for at least 10 years. But many of them have been available much much longer. And you know, there's the dishes that we go back for time and time again that have really made a mark on the city's culinary since you've got appetizers, main courses and desserts. Let's go through some of these, starting with the rib eye steak at Jean and George Jetties. Well, you talk about iconic. That place has been around since The forties. So I'm glad you highlighted it because they're still going strong, aren't they? They are, you know, a visit to Jean and George studies. Every moment of that is iconic and you know the rib eye. There is just so delicious that we thought it was. It was really perfect to include in this issue. And you liked or your people there in Chicago, like chicken Vesuvio at the village, and this is one of those places that you hear about it and you think? Wait a minute. There's still there on West Monroe, but they are are thick. They are still there. They're still serving up Italian classics and, you know we wanted to include chicken, the studio. It's very Chicago death, and one of the dining writers said that you know what? This version just nails it. So, um, you know, it really feels like it's a dish that belongs to this issue. I love Chinese food who doesn't and you've got a couple of places on the list that I want to ask you about. First of all, you mentioned the chef's special, dry chili chicken dish at lousy, Sean. And they have multiple locations. So if if a restaurant, uh, had more than one spot you didn't eliminate them, did you? No, we didn't. You know, Some of the restaurants included whether it's lost the Schwann or Portillo Zorlu Malnati is there is so many locations, which I think also, you know, just kind of is a testament to what an important part of the city's financing they are. I would have been, I would have liked to have been on your staff. Given this assignment did did your Did your dining people just eat like crazy for a month? How did that work? We did it. Um, you know, it's running around the city, trying different dishes and, you know, just making sure that things are as delicious as we remembered, and, uh You know, I won one dish I wrote about was the Polish sausage that express grill and, you know, just picking up the sausage and eating it over the car chart was just like a very fun afternoon. I'll bet I like my egg rolls. We've talked about egg rolls a lot on this broadcast, and I thought I knew all the great egg rolls around here. Within about a 50 mile radius of the city. But I must confess, I've never been into this restaurant on Irving Park, the Orange Garden, which and you can tell by the signage. They haven't changed in decades. And you guys pick their egg rolls as as a great Chicago dish, didn't you? We did You know, they have a little bit of peanut butter, which is a very Chicago addition to an egg roll. Orange garden is an icon in itself. You know, if you determined by it looks absolutely unchanged, The neon is still still blazing from the window. Um, and it's it's a very classic old school Chinese restaurant of the Admirals are particularly good. I am going to have to try those because a lot of people around here miss the old Peking House, P nutty girl you're going to. You're going to start a lot of fights with with pizza picks. But the one you guys liked in the far South side. They've been around a long time, and they're great. Vito and Nick's and your staff selected their thin crust sausage pizza. We did You know, Vito and next was such an institution And you know, we felt like they're thin Cross sauces is the way to go there. Um, um, one of our writers who wrote this one up and she grew up very close, uh to the restaurant, and you know, it's such an iconic part of her childhood and I have made the visit down there to have those very pizza and it's really memorable. It is and you know what? During the pandemic. That's the kind of place that you always worried about, hoping they would survive. And thankfully they have, haven't they? Absolutely. Yes. And the second hockey at Greek Islands was your selection for this, Uh, famous dish, And I think I remember something about this actually being invented in Chicago. Is that Is that true? Do you know that? That's true Sagen. AKI, you know he didn't out in Greektown you've seen the flaming to use was invented at the person on restaurant, which is a restaurant that has since closed by the dish has become You know, such an incredible part of, um Greek Greek venues and in Chicago and even beyond, um, and the Greek islands, for sure, you know. Keeps the magic going. Yeah, they're in Lombard now, too. This breaded steak sandwich. That major list of Chicago's iconic EADS. Uh now I've been reading about this place for a long time. Never been there. Uh, tell me about this is it Is it How do you pronounce it? RICO Beans. Rico bat is Rico. Bennis? Yeah, Yeah, This is, um, really hefty sandwich. It's absolutely delicious. It's breaded skirt steak, um, in a a red gravy that you know there's Jordan Gara. So it's spicy. There's mozzarella, so it's really gooey. It is a really delicious sandwich. Rico Bennis and they're in Bridgeport on West 26th Street going to have to try that because people grave about that place and top notch beef burgers, Another place that people swear by these hamburgers. Your staff selected the patty Melt. They like that. How come Um, you know, it was, um All right. The same writer who wrote about Vito and Nick's also grew up eating this Patty melts a top notch and says that, you know the right, um, it's so crispy and buttery that it's the perfect pairing for the the burger with the cheese and grilled onions. And this is top of my list to go try. Yeah, and it's good that you have the Southside locations the Southside places because There's sort of a feeling that all the great spots on the North side but that is not not so cation point top notch over there on West 95th in Beverly. And again, you. You don't discriminate among chains because you like Portillo's chocolate cake, don't you? I do, like Port Hills chocolate cake. Um, that is just as delicious lace of super chocolatey cake. Um and you know you can get a slice. You can get a whole cake to go. You can get a turned into a cake Shake. Um If you're looking for something really over the top, But I think that you know Portillo's is a is a Chicago institution. Then the cake is my theory. Stick their my sources report that the secret ingredient in that cake is mayonnaise. Have you heard that? I have heard that. Yeah. Yeah, it is very moist and talking about desserts. Margie's Candies, certainly an iconic spot over there in Western Avenue. And the hot fudge sundae was was the dish featured in the special edition of Chicago magazine? I imagine your your people went through a lot of desserts, but they like the hot fudge sundae best, I guess. We did? Yeah, our writer who went to have it just, you know, loved how you know the nostalgic feel of going to Mars. It is and what's more classic than a hot fudge sundae and it comes in a little boat on the side. So it's a really good summer Treat. Amy Kevin. I was a dining editor for Chicago magazine, and the editors put together this special issue. Chicago's iconic Eats, which is available now 50 local.

"I'm Pat Thurston. Okay, so we just had Phyllis Bennis on from foreign policy in focus. Um she's represent what she's doing is advocating. For the Palestinians, who are under a massive assault in in Gaza, a massive assault hundreds of people killed dozens of Children who have been killed 50,000 people have been displaced is a result of this assault. And here's what I want to say about this. Let me ask a question. I mean, can can we can I Because I am. Can I be critical? Of Israel. And still support Israel. And their right to exist. And their right to exist as a Jewish state. Because all of those things are true to my mind. I don't know all of the complexities that have gone on over them, You know, centuries in that region. I don't know All of that. What I do know is what I'm witnessing is an absolutely horrific humanitarian crisis that innocent people are dying innocents people in Israel but a substantially fewer amount of them than the people who are dying in Gaza. And Gaza is being completely destroyed. Whenever infrastructure they have is being destroyed. They will intentionally cut off the power as they attempt to destroy these tunnels. These tunnels that Hamas has indeed used in order to move weaponry and parts into Israel, particularly so that they can build these rockets. Yes, Hamas is violating international law by lobbing these rockets into Israel because they're completely indiscriminate. I believe that Israel is also violating international law because they are punishing The entirety of the population of Gaza because Hamas is loving these rockets, and they are doing so Israel's doing this, You know, they say that they're trying to target these certain areas. Yeah, okay. They're targeting these areas and in the process, they're killing Children, and they're killing innocents. Um, it's I don't I don't believe that They're taking the appropriate precautions and I'll tell you something else. I do believe what Phyllis was saying about the provocations. I believe that Netanyahu has been incredibly provocative. I think that he has leaned way way way over to the far far right in Israeli society. Not all Israelis are like Netanyahu. You know, he has some trouble holding onto power, though he's been able to do it thus far, he's facing corruption charges once he leaves office. Apparently he's kind of like the president here in the Cited state he's protected from accountability for his crimes as long as he's in office. But there's a right wing within Israel that wants to kill the Arabs. They want to kill. The Palestinians have seen them interview. I've seen a lot of them interviewed. There are I've seen them and you've seen this to the marches through the street says they're a screaming kill the Arabs. These air Israelis there. There were marches that would would have been even further provocation that we're in. Tended to go right through Palestinian neighborhoods. Those were moved to a different location. There was this fire that was burning, and there were people who were chanting erased their names concerning the Palestinians. Now Pat and and there were Palestinian businesses where these same right wing creeps were going through and breaking windows and destroying businesses in Palestinian areas. The Palestinians are not innocents. There are Palestinians and of course, we know. Historically, we remember about strapping bombs to their own bodies and getting onto Busses is people are coming home from work and bombing innocents Israelis about going into that nightclub where the teenagers were celebrating and setting off bombs in the nightclub. There are certainly there's a certainly a great deal of hostility and hatred between these two factions. But some kind of peace. It has got to be found. Some kind of peace has to happen. What is going on right now is not acceptable. And what when you say that Israeli that Israel has a right to protect itself. I agree with you so the Palestinians and Israel's right to protect itself does not mean that they can use disproportionate force and that they can punish You know, use collective punishment of the entire population in Gaza, and that is what this amounts to So, Yeah, we need to try to do something to get the United States government to do something. And when a representative from the State Department was specifically asked by foreign journalists when he said the line that American presidents and state departments and spokespeople have been speaking for decades Israel has a right to defend itself. He was asked by these journalists. And do Palestinians have the same right? He stumbled and stuttered and could not answer the question and would not answer the question in the affirmative. When someone was asked by a representative of the Biden government was asked. Will you condemn the killing of Children in Gaza? They would not condemn the killing of Children. I mean, for God's sake. How hard is that? Yes, we condemn the killing of Children everywhere. How about that? That's not so hard to do. They won't The United States wheels, tremendous power. They're getting weapons and they're getting money from us, and they thumbed their nose. Netanyahu doesn't give a hoot What Joe Biden says doesn't care. And and Netanyahu is leaning more and more toward that right wing as the settlements as the evacuation. The evictions of these Palestinians continue. Um okay. 80 88 Tennis the telephone number 888 10 Edward is calling from mountain view. Edward. Hi. Welcome to K G. Oh, hi. How are you, Pat? I'm well, Thank you, Edward. I'm just my heart's breaking to hear you say so much anti Semitic stuff. Like what? What did I say? That was anti semantic, please. It's just crazy. Okay? Help! Help me! Help me! Help me! What did I say that was anti Semitic and sounded like a Nazi. You sound like a not the year inside you. How? How? Tell me something specifically, I said you have lost the storyline. Pat. It would take way too much time to educate me. One example. I haven't been speaking that long. Give me one example. You're anti Semitic. And you're going to get reported to the A. D. L have a great day. I'm shaking in my boots. Edward, look. It's not that hard. If you really think I sound like a Nazi, if you really think that I said something that was anti Semitic, you should be able to quote it back to me because I haven't been speaking for that long. It's not going to take forever for you to correct me. Just tell me what I said that you believe was anti Semitic. Is it because I believe that Palestinians have a right to live, too I do is it because I'm worried about what they have been subjected to the kind of lifestyle they've been subjected to? I do. Do I also fall Palestinians? Do I fault Hamas? Yes, I do. So I'm not sure what it is. That is anti Semitic here. 80 88 have I said that Jews have a right to exist in Israel that they have a right to a Jewish homeland. I do I believe that the persecution that use have suffered over millennia. That of all people on this earth that they have a right to establish a homeland where every Jew can go find a place where they are welcomed. I believe that of Israel. I don't think that that gives Israel carb lunch. Violate international law and to pursue what they are pursuing. Right now. What is Netanyahu's endgame? You tell me what is Netanyahu's end game in this? 80 88 tennis, the telephone number 80 88 10. Let's go to Patrick. He's in San Jose Patrick. Hi. Welcome to KGO. Thank you for taking my call. Yes.

Don't let number two Don't let people call you and I send mine because you want to take a critical look at your own. You know our own satellite. Let's just call it that way. What do you think? What do you think Netanyahu is after? What do you think His endgame here is in this latest action Builder Coalition government, and he needs all the right wingers. And if you look at his previous election, he always scared the hell out of everybody And it's us and them. Any game that coalition so his, his coalition is slipping. He was not able to gather a majority last time, and now he's creating this stuff. And and anybody that knows anything about that area knows that he instigated. Like you said the mosque in and everything else. And his dirty little hands are all over this time. I really cannot stand that fella. Besides, Tomas needs to go to hell. Got Netanyahu needs to go to hell. Yeah, Patrick, I'm on your side on this. I would like Hamas to go to hell as well. And I would like Netanyahu to go to hell. Let's go to Frank and Nevada.

"Good afternoon. I'm Pat. There's just sorry about that. You gave Kim McAllister quite a start thinking it was time for her to start with the news. We're speaking with Phyllis Bennis. She's at foreign policy in focus and feels I know we have short short time. Here. I s Oh, I'm going to skip over some of the dynamics I wanted to cover with Netanyahu there. Two things. One is many people say that Israel is simply attempting to defend itself after Hamas launched Thousands of rockets into Israel, creating far less damage, of course, then the missiles that are going into Gaza. But doesn't Israel have a right to defend itself? And secondarily? What is the United States doing in? What should we be doing to press? I mean, really put the pressure on to achieve a cease fire. These are critical questions. You know, History is determined by when you start the clock. If you start the clock with when Hamas rockets began flying into Israel, then it's Hamas initiative, and Israel is just responding. If you take a couple steps back from that, why did him us start to send those rockets? Well, first of all, it's sent Seven rockets, not thousands in its first volley didn't hit anything, and that was in response in direct response to the attack on the El Aqsa Mosque. In Jerusalem that I spoke about earlier. This was ah, shocking thing for Muslims all around the world, in fact, when armed police went into the mosque and began firing tear gas and using stun grenades inside the mosque. And on what is the holiest night of Ramadan, holiest night in the year during morning prayers, and Hamas issued an ultimatum and said, Pull out your troops from the mosque and stop these evictions in Jerusalem. And it was. It was a deliberate provocation. On the Israeli side. There was no reason they needed to raid the locks on mascot that point. Uh, the rockets, then started firing. Now I happen to believe that mass nonviolent mobilization is a more effective tool. But I'm not a Palestinian. I'm not living in 14 years, 14 years Gaza has been under Ah blockade and Israeli blockade. You have Children who have grown up never leaving this tiny strip of land that is the most crowded strip of land in the world. And unless we've only got about a minute, I know we want to talk about ceasefire. Just question quickly on the cease fire. It's not new for the U. S. To refuse to reject the United Nations moves to declare ceasefire. It's happened before it happened in 2006 that happened in 2008 and nine it's happened in 2014. What President Biden finally gave in to the pressure to say the words we support a ceasefire. But that's like saying in the abstract as soon as Israel decides that they have killed enough Palestinians that now they they want to see far then we will Call for one. Until then, the Biden administration is still refusing. Congress is up in arms about this 29 senators have have signed a very explicit short statement calling directly for an immediate cease fire. World leaders are calling for it. And today has been a strike day for Palestinians and around the world for supporters of Palestinian rights to say there must be an immediate ceasefire and an end to the evictions. The pressure should be brought to bear in this country. We don't want to be led by an administration who is refusing to say the words. We need an immediate cease fire now. And when Israel says, Well, we're not ready to say Well, we are then going to make our arms and our $3.8 billion a year of our tax money that we give to the Israeli army. Dependent on an immediate cease fire if they don't Support an immediate ceasefire and carry it out. That money should be stopped. The arms sale should be stopped the announcement of a new arms sale that just emerged that's going to send $735 million worth of new missiles to Israel in the midst of this onslaught. Is an outrage. Members of Congress are feeling the heat they are expressing it. People in the street. Usually in a non defensive for this is an offensive war of an occupying power against an occupied population. That's what we're dealing with here. So let's a film Spanish. I wanna thank you so much for joining us today, and I'm glad you said what you said, because that's kind of the way I was leaning was we're providing all of this aid to Israel. We have a great deal of power. Here we do. We hold a lot and so we can use that power to get the violence to stop. And then work on a peaceful resolution means hold Israel accountable. That's what we need to aim for. Thank you so much. Phyllis Bennis, Phyllis Bennis with foreign policy in focus, and we're gonna get a news update from Kim McAllister and we will be back. We'll get to your telephone calls in a little bit more information about what's going on right now. At in Gaza and in Israel, I'm Pat Thurston, and you're listening to K.

So when i'm in combat choose very carefully who attack because i know he's gonna retreat as soon as possible so It makes you think a little differently because there's not many other obvious that have the same type of mechanics and there are an give. We're to get into because there are pages and pages of base. There are so many mechanics. And i think maybe that's another another thing that You know you look at this and it's very overwhelming but what you can't understand the rules elect right now i need. I know how to make decisions.

"Rick till eight two hundred chicken wings at your mama's house last night now back to fat boy. That hurts my feelings. Welcome back to the show to the with you. The rest of the way. The lines are available at one. Eight hundred eight seven eight play. Let's go to oakland with chris. What's up man. rick. I love those drops. You always have man you've had those for awhile and you haven't you just just austin since two thousand two. Wow that's amazing and just All right sounds good. Hey i was trying to get an earlier. But i wanted to comment on. The leonard. Myers meyers leonard right. That's the guy's name meyers to leonard myers. Sounds more correct. Yes it is meyers leonard. And i don't wanna sound you know racists or stereotypical but those are kind of stereotypical jewish names speaking of which My question is do you think that this is something to do with the fact that it's miami. Do you think that has any any effect at all on this on this conversation because you know it's more traditional. It's against stereotypical jewish more jewish community on their miami. What do you think now. I think with the commissioner is jewish the commissioner before him was jewish The the media in new york. I mean yeah. There are a lot of retired. New yorkers live in florida. There's no doubt. But i think this would have been the case. No matter where he did it. I believe so vs oklahoma city. You'd think it's the same kind of push back. I think probably the local people in oklahoma city wouldn't have cared as much you're correct but it still would have been a national deal in the nba. Still be that's and all the other stuff. Yeah yeah. I mean. I'm not. I'm not a jewish american and frankly i've mothers arabic right so my grandfather. My great uncle fought in syria against the israelis. Right so i get where maybe somebody you know you know you were talking earlier about cultural but obviously were americans and jewish france. But i remember in ninety four. When schindler's list came out and the teacher castleman in east. Oakland was probably at that. Time was definitely an all african american school. But now it's more mixed. They took him to the grand lake theater in downtown. Oakland to see the dacian. There's list and this is ninety four. So there's still a lot of jewish americans who had either directly affected by the holocaust or after and a lot of the young people that saw the film. They didn't have it store context. I understand i remember. It didn't have historical context of you know. Be living to the holocaust of what that meant and so people were you know. It's young kids. Watch movies people shooting there. Make a lot of noises in my damn and this net and it was a huge thing and i remember steven spielberg actually came to the school because it was such a blowback that they actually stopped the film a lot of jewish people that were watching. The film were horrified. These kids had respect and the kids didn't really have it from a cultural plate. So like this you know whether he knew the word or not. I mean it's not you know as a kid growing up the california's not at common word would use but you know whatever But i think you can you instead of blasting the guy like you know banning spanish this is a great time to talk about the holocaust survivors. That connection i do. I do think it's not a political show but the fact it And say what you are former president. He did do a lot in terms of normalizing relations between the countries and israel. Some people don't like it but you know as we move forward as a global society. I think that's important so not necessitate. Spielberg thing from what i remember about that story because it was a big deal. I thought he went to the grand lake and watched it with them and they were quiet as a mouse the whole time. I think that was the second part. But i know he actually went to the school itself them on over there on. Eighty six and macarthur. You know it used to be an actual capsule. My grandfather taught there in the thirties Great school you know. Lie joe morgan's out of their Sports guys but Twenty tony tony kasimov kasimov but he actually went to the school and i remember it was a big deal Bennis again early nineties ninety four and it was a you know. I believe the teacher was a white guy. He had been jewish. I don't know but we took a bunch of the students. To the opening. The schindler's list of grand lake and a lot of jewish americans there and it was a big learning experience. You know we'll talk to that. But it's sort of like any pulp fiction a completely different kind of movie. But i remember when john travolta waving the gun around and shot marvin in the back of the car. The audience i watched it with everyone started laughing hysterically and i was thinking. I don't think this is supposed to be funny. But that's the reaction. That's the kind of the reaction. Yeah people getting shot and Yeah i mean and plus the fact regardless race and ethnic heritage teenagers when you let them outside of the classroom They're gonna be completely knucklehead goof-balls to which doesn't yeah yeah. We have a theater mall four star cinema. And i remember seeing a rat run into and i felt a toy with richard pryor and it was always at the time it was a big hayes in the back of the thing smelled like marijuana smell like skunk or something so yeah they'll see in movies and some you know some of the old movie theaters. We're awesome two dollar night at hilltop. And i'm telling you the clientele is when i was sixteen. I thought wow. I get to see a double feature for a dollar and it was like quest for fire and You know just some stupid that. Yeah so yeah. Clash of the titans. Whatever and At i remember one time the film the frame stopped. And all of a sudden you saw this like heat bubble and it burned and ripped because you know the boulder so hot that if the film is constantly moving at burns right through the celluloid and then there are people who are actually asking further dollar back. That is phenomenal guy you leave. I saw white. Men can't jump at the century which is crossed mukasey of a big fight and then they basically gave. He's money back at to stop the movie. So would that story times. thanks for the. Thanks for the call. Chris Chris of enough to get them syrian army stories. That's pretty interesting as well One eight hundred eight seven eight play To get in and get hurt and listen like we said like chris was saying i mean. It's it's not. we're not in a time right now where you can save something and plead ignorance on it. You just can't and And i've i've pointed this out many times. I felt sorry for grant napier when he was asked about black lives matter and he said well. I think all lives matter. You're fired what did i do. He didn't realize that saying that disparage the black lives matter movement. And you think. How could that possibly disparage it. Well if you save blue lives matter. It says that if it's firemen deserve red lives matter. I don't know But as i said everybody is always so focused on labels. And what are you. What are you know i'm this i'm that you are people will tell you what you are. You are a cyst gender. Whatever like i am. I didn't even know what i am. And there's just there's zero tolerance you know For me Something like that. That happened on his own time. Like i hope. I'm never dumb enough to do something like that but i would never give a blanket apology to strangers. If i offended someone and i do we do it all the time. If i offend someone i would apologize that person. Some sorry i offended you that if it was a private conversation now he was doing this openly on twitch so that's where he messed up but if it's a private conversation like if it's a private text message ember guys getting in trouble for their text messages.
