"blair" Discussed on Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver
"This is a this is a broad question. But what person place or experience most altered your life. And i'm going to say apart from becoming prime minister because it's too it's too easy when you have an extraordinarily rarefied experience probably meeting someone who became my mentor university. Who was actually a referendum thompson. who was in australian. And who's a remarkable character in teacher and he changed the direction of my life. Because first of all before i met him. I wasn't interested in politics. Secondly i didn't really have any ambition to do anything in the world. As it were as personable overcome a loyal settled down or whatever and he put my life on a different path by sharing me really the less. You live your life with some sense of obligation to try and do your best in the world. But it wasn't falling short of what you should be. Do you think it's a confluence of sensing something in somebody else that you speak to that mentor. See something in them anti and speaks to that power of them before they've perhaps even seen it themselves or is it them visit them just sharing knowledge that they've they've paid attention to the world around them because they've been around longer than we have like. Do you think that he saw something or do you think that is what he was saying through. His observances ignited something new. It's interesting of course. I actually have asked myself that question going on. So i mean i think he saw something that he felt should be developed. Maybe and he had this impact on the love of the people around me. United strange time university. Because i never felt i really making the most of my time at university many ways for somebody ended up with prime minister. I think the any time i ever went to the union was once to listen to a speech by michael heseltine tzali got. That's like a war. That's the worst one interesting i. Interested talk politics. I was actually trying to get close to take your girl at the time. I wasn't interested in politics at all the time. Which do you read the investee law. Very good teacher at very cheetahs. Nevertheless i think it will blow wasn't brilliant subject for me at university. I enjoyed it much more when i practice it. I would even better probably with with history. But i didn't get to. The oxford union. Didn't go on on stage or anything but i. I ended not mixing with influential people only at university Point of all of them. But when i look back now i think maybe adult in my life in another way. While which is i became aware that there was a will be all society Own country via way of life and that gave me was brought perspective. It must be very interesting to see the position of prime minister. As one of service that requires a power grab. It requires a choose me a pick me. And then the notion of service governing one would hope kicks in but they seem to be diametrically opposed how one gets to be prime minister and then actually governing who. There's my dog way. Your question is a great question. Said the thing that people find heart on the stand about politicians than i never felt myself like a politician. Feel different from anyone else. It's just the environment to which you're in. You realize that a certain point in time there's a bit of it. The is noble That's skulduggery poetics is. Obviously he's not. My theory is the very few people ever get to the top in politics. Someone being prime minister unless they're driven by relief. You stop in politics. We believe the trouble is yours. Trying to implement those believes in this environment in which all these other ignoble elements present. And if you believe in what you're trying to do you can't just pretend in some elevated way in some saintly way can just get devoured ice and then you never get to do the things you want to do. This is why usually off betrays. Politics is just a doc seem but in fact most politicians that i've ever come across going into politics wanting to do good and obviously oftentimes table full show but it's not that they cease wanting to do good. It's the competitive nature of it. And the way that would in a normal workplaces would be sort of relatively low key. Psychological drama as in politics is played out on under the full glare reliable stage and the choices difficult know. I won't say to people the time you should trust. The politician most is when the telling you what you least want the here but actually that's not how most people view politics they trust what they do wanna hear but that's the easy thing to do politics. The hard thing is when you are cheering supporters. Say no can't do that. It's not right and when you when you take decisions when you decide you divide when you decide you divide. I really can't thank you enough. I'm just so so interesting talking to you is obliterating all the very best. Thank you so you see tony.

The Lucas Bros, Using Humor 'To Shake Folk Woke'
"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news

If there. would be such a huge franchise. No. No I I hear. You know another interesting tidbit about this one is They get the secret. When they were filming this thing they didn't let anyone know that it had a connection Blair witch and it was being filmed under the state title the Woods Obama.

We disagree with the critics we disagree with the Audience Score What do you think about Mike Mike claim last week John this is a highly underrated movie. Can you get behind that? Definitely, it's a, it's a movie that's worth your time. And if it's a movies worth your time. And it's getting social scores that it is. It's definitely underrated. Right, like definitely is I think you I think you can't go wrong spending an hour and a half watching this movie if you like horror movies. And again, even if you haven't seen the Blair witch project, you don't feel watch this winter. No hop on net flicks check it out. It's worth the watch. I would argue that this one's better than the original. A ton of time to think about that I just haven't thought about it, but you could be right because you kinda strike the first one. Perfectly it was. Okay and then iconic ending. So you know what you know what just on this further moment I might have to say this one's better too. I. Think. On almost every aspect, it wasn't. It wasn't slow in the first one was slow. It just wasn't an is still had you waiting for an I even like the part because it had me waiting for people standing in the corner at the end like it had me waiting for that. And we when it happened I was like Oh God so good right. So it made me happy to see that so. I definitely argue that this is better. But you you Kinda knew it was coming but it also didn't feel like a rip off you know what I'm saying no like so you do it was coming but didn't win it was coming and then. Also, with the way, the film was going wasn't sure that if you weren't sure that it was coming. So I I liked it. I like to hold presentation of it till the end is delivery was with really done. Strongly agree my friend anything else dad. No idea meltzer. So then all we have is again Much Shawn Small for the recommendation. Again as I said last week Sean kind of senators a list of a few movies in this one really hopped out to me as I wanted to the thanks very much shawn. And next buddy hop on. NETFLIX's again we're going with a SAM Raimi. Film Drake Mita Hell Sam Raimi Yeah have. You seen this when John I started watching it a while ago and then..

Who's getting a paycheck to produce a product? But that's not easily done all the time I I recognize that. Yeah speaking of college. You went to visit Harvard Law. I think prepping for your role on La Law and a little Birdie told me that you met a young man who went on to become the first black president of the United States. How in the world that happen while I was in my first Season Valley Law and my character when he came on the show. He was from Harvard Law School in his backstory and he was editor of the Harvard Law Review in his backstory so the Harvard Law Harvard Law. School invited a couple of producers and myself to come speak to the law school. And I I did not even remember meeting him at the time and we went out to dinner that night. With a group of students and Alan Dershowitz which is Ironic And it wasn't until he ran for president where he did an interview and he mentioned that they would call him my character on campus and the Communists did so. Did you meet Rapporte? All men big ears at tall has the same great as reinforce seen him since then in a saw him was actually campaign for him was at at the White House at their first state dinner and it was just. It was a mind blowing moments. You talk about continuity and evolution Dec- to see this African American family in this this museum I e the White House That slaves enslaved Africans built And to see them as a first family this was like their first two months in the White House so it was just wild and You know Harkening back to when I first met him to see where he is now and he was of course the actual editor of the Harvard law right and the first black president. No salesmen wild. Yeah Wow typically I would I would ask you what Barack Obama smells like Book that That's why I'm just like I don't. I don't know that you know I think he smells like freedom and reparations. Just Awesome Okay. So we must talk about your work in when they I'm just glad that she exists. I'm so glad she's you know a really really am One of the things that I thought when I heard about this project I I was really excited but I was also like you know this is heavy you know and I mean like life is heavy. Sure but like it just seems like we're at a place in society where like everything's on fire and like you know trauma is just like front and center and so many stories. Was it ever like draining for you to like kind of exist inside this movie in this completely unjust case? Oh sure sure You Know I. It's your points. We'll take it when you say it's heavy and so many people have said. I wanted to watch it or haven't I haven't seen all four episodes four hours I started wash. It was just too heavy and you know my retorted that is these guys their lives altered and they did years in prison. You know if you're interested you know maybe we can give them at least four hours of a time but yeah it was but you know it's whenever you create anything of art performing art with its film television stage When it's heavy especially you have to have that release val and I would tell you. This was shooting because of Asia's direction in her spirit. Everybody wanted to really bring their a game But also you know you work hard and you play hard. So there's a lot of laughter on that said we'll leave him that because we knew we felt like we were doing something that was necessary and timely and relevant Tell me about some of the stories and stuff that would happen on that. Do you have a favorite memory from making the movie favorite memory? I think I don't know Bro. Funny member necessarily but just watching. These young cow walked on the set. The first day in and I I was blown away at how young these guys were guys. They were fourteen fifteen. Sixteen so one of the actors was actually fourteen. I think fifteen one was twenty one playing younger but but you forget that they were. They were babies as a parent. Now I look at these babies So I think that's what stuck out with anything but also then watching these kids come there as just professional active slamming Take after take this putting it in getting it in doing the work honest and raw So that's that's that's inspiring to me to watch these. These young kids do that thing. I'm always very taken by the roles that you take and another project that you worked. Last year was dear. White People Another net flicks Netflix series. My last bar products with Netflix. Oh Yeah How's about that? I don't want to spoil it too much. Who Haven't seen it but your character is a professor college. Campus gets swept up in some me too ish type stuff With a student a white student so given our current political landscape like these conversations that people are having right now like the abuse of power of minute who are in charge and the metoo movement and then like matters of race. You know. Black lives matters a thing What was it like to portray someone in the middle of a fictionalized account of something? That's really going on right now. vet'll ballard wasn't executive producer on the show that time just in. Siemian created the show and she was a friend and she had dinner together. our families in she said. Would you come on show as well what will I I? Yeah 'cause he's a friend And she told me what the character was about so to answer your question in terms of the Hashtag metoo movement of it all I asked. I quite like getting in the middle of telling relevant stories. Part of my love of what I do is to entertain. But if you can provoke thought and stimulate thought and change and be a part of that conversation because we haven't had that conversation a lot in our community you know there's there's the bill cosby of it all and in this and that was really kind of the broad stroke template of this character because this character that play. Professor Brown was beloved by all the students and he was a hero to the students. What do we do in our communities? Specifically when our heroes fall that was the impetus of this of the storyline So to to be a part of telling that story from creatives sampling. I love being a part of that and the reason I love it is because it's it's necessary that we have these conversations with the guards specifically specificity of who we are and what that means to us. Why sometimes it's harder for us because we don't have we we don't have as many heroes as we probably should have needed to have someone. One of US falls alike cosby. What do we do with that? What are we put that whom we look to look within ourselves to look to other people look to our parents ourselves as leaders in our community or our homes families So I love being a part of those conversations so to portray you know he would probably now. I mean it's been also veit spoiler. I don't mind playing bad guys officer guy as my body works a lot of good ten years but some people see you always play. The bad guy for is more interesting to play. Because because there's a mystique good guys you know you know what you're gonNA get bad guys. You don't don't always know so I love that so this would be considered a quote unquote bad guys. Let's get under the layers. That's what I enjoy doing. Covert let's mine. What's underneath that find out? Why do people actively that's why I always have to explain to people why I'm so interested in serial killers and they're always like you know what we could have been talking about the whole I'm have a morbid fascination with what goes wrong in a brain right. How how does one? How does one get to the point? Where you've got like body parts in your freezer circular just caused with Sean Connery. And Laurence Fishburne Adheres Scarlett Johansson at ten years old. Wow but but yeah. That exploration was Was was crazy but what. Yeah what what wrong you have. Another upcoming Netflix. Mini series about the life of a one madame CJ Walker Is a period piece. I love period and I feel like there are not enough black wins. I don't know if that's true. That's probably true but it's happening more and more because of Netflix and streaming services What are you most excited for people to see in this? Many call man Octavia Spencer for once. She added C. J. Walker Academy Award Winning Octavius Academy Award winning. Indeed Tiffany Haddish is in it as well. She plays her daughter And Garrett Morris and Bill Bellamy You know what I'm most excited for people to see the story itself It's called self-made. They have newtown now but self made the lifetime or legacy of inspired by Madame. Cj Walker But you know this. This was a woman for those who don't know who was the first self made female millionaire in our country that black about the first female self-made millionaire another what she did not inherited she worked for. She built it and she did that by creating black hair care products for for African American women at the time on this early nineteen hundred. She died in Nineteen Nineteen So this this was extra.

Alabi dot me food slashed. Today it is me and Helen. We're in a slightly different location so there might be a bit of background noise. We apologize for that. We've been talking about Europe for a few weeks but British politics has been moving on and we're going to cover a few things starting with the speech that Tony Blair gave last week to celebrate the hundred and twentieth birthday of Labor Party. I believe the birthday is today that they were recording. It was a typical Tony Blair speech and it was really annoying and it was also quite interesting and he said that the Labor Party needs to do three things. If it's going to get back in the game the one goal the coverage was it needs to not go down the cul de sac of identity politics so we are not going to get on the cul de sac. Talking about Tony Blair on identity politics. We're GONNA talk about the other two which didn't get nearly as much coverage. She said the other two things that Labor needs to do Get back into some kind of progressive liberal coalition. The black project has always been to some extent to reunite the Liberal Party and the Labour Party and for our American listeners. We have to be clear here. That liberal doesn't mean US liberal. It means the British Liberal Party by chance. Yesterday I bumped in someone in the street who happened to be listening to our Mike League Naughty episode an American who stopped me and said how can you call him liberal? And he's not for Bernie. I'm I didn't know where to start except to say he's Canadian. Liberal means so many different things in different places the Liberal Progressive Alliance here does not mean Bernie and then the other thing. Blessed Labor needs to do which people in labor and indeed in search democratic parties around the Western World. Been saying for about twenty years is workout opposable account of the future which takes account of the fact that the nature of labor is changing. We are entering the age digital automation and Labor. Needs a story about the future of work and that means a new story about the economy. A news story about the nature of government. All of these things have to be completely reconfigured and this was an implicit criticism of the leadership candidates. All of them. I think they weren't looking for that progressive alliance and they weren't telling a story about a feature. Helen do you buy it? Well I think that depends which aspect to this that we're talking about if we start with the first issue bless plea for there to be cooperation between Labour and the Liberal Democrat so he did sort of touch some conditions in to that in terms of the Liberal Democrats being serious it wasn't just a plea labor as he sees it to be serious. I think several things struck me about it. The first is that Blair has always been alone in this obviously but very keen on this language of being progressive in some sense that doesn't actually differentiate him from people much further to the left within the Labour Party and all of the leadership candidates totally comfortable in the language of progressivism. It's just they don't like the joining with the Democrats. Are we read the speech again this morning? And it's pretty difficult to work out. What Blair actually means by progressive? I mean in some sense. I think that which is quite common with him. It is it means newness because it means the future is the other bit visual of something. That's new against something that's all. I mean that's sort of central the whole idea of in presenting his new labour. And he always you know in his heyday like to identify Labor with future conservatives with the with the past but clearly there are plenty of people who think that being progressive means a lot more than simply being in favor of what's new against what's owed and not really interested in disentangling giving any specific meaning really to his idea of being progressive is but the second thing about it is that it's really strange history. I think that that he's telling because in his version of history that there's some sort of birth defects is the phrase that you use. It goes wrong right at the beginning because labor in the liberals should be the same party at the beginning of the twentieth century on. They they come apart and that this is the ongoing tragedy of the centre-left and progressive politics and by the reason why the Conservatives keep winning election absolutely hot from him no Labour leader. Living Labour leader has managed to but really talking about such a short period of time. I think where you could say that there is this almost mythical liberal labour cooperation which is around the time when liberals were in power and when they were landslide victory. We'd Labor's help all effectively part at the Times. Help nine hundred ninety six. I think about forty eight seats where the Liberals are stand in one thousand nine hundred six and that is a reforming liberal government. Passes some of the early welfare state legislation but that Liberal Party I mean can say several things about it first of all. It's it's going to come apart in the end just like the previous version of liberalism. The Liberal Party did over home rule. It's going to come over the first world war you could also say that the two most consequential people in that liberal government turn out to be Lou. George who in the end when faced with a choice is going to take his version of the liberals into a coalition with the Conservatives as outlast the first world war Winston Churchill who's obviously not some emblem of progressive progressive politics. So you've got a pretty small period of time in which you can say that this sort of mythical corporation that is what is necessary actually is on. It doesn't last. It makes me think of the fact that many people in the Labour party believed that stories being repeated because Nick Clegg given the choice also showed that he was more comfortable forming a government with the Conservatives them with the Labor Party and that as they say it. Betrayal will take a long time to unwind itself. I think Blair also thinks the other missed moment was nineteen ninety-seven. There's always a story. That's told about him that he was completely prepared. In government with a sort of smallish majority to reach out to the Liberal Democrats and then the British people selfishly gave him an absolutely massive majority and say the moment was passed and I think he still believes that he missed a moment. Now and then. There's the question that I was thinking about. Whenever these things it's an alliance or coalition but what's the former politics will cement it. We talked about this. A few weeks ago Blah ninety-seven made a very good case against proportional representation. Which is one route? Great it one of the presiding stories of politics is the idea. There is this anti-tory alliance but it needs a different voting systems. Come to the fore. The other option is the nineteen ninety-six gas which is deals between seats across seas. We just had an election that shows what incredibly fragile thing is the frustration. I have with the Blair account and it connects to the other point about reimagining the economy for the digital age and reimagining. What government would look like? It never reimagined the political system itself. It's always has to be Kinda pass through a very very conventional account of what the goal of politics is which is for political parties under this political system to win power. And we've got one hundred plus years of history showing that doesn't work in the direction of these kinds of alliances and yet he's not because nothing in there about how you'd hold it together. Yeah I think you can also say. Is that what we seen since the one thousand nine hundred eighty s is when you do get a period and I would say that that runs from nine hundred ninety two actually through to probably to two thousand and ten where you do get some tacit corporation between Labor and the Democrat. Voters basically a tactical voting in ways. That make it difficult for the conservative. So that I say it begins in ninety two because you've got much reduced conservative majority of pretty much the same share of the vote in Nineteen ninety-two. It's dependent on the low party being led by somebody like tiny black so if you get the conditions that have quite a lot of Liberal Democrat Labour Corporation than you have a Labor Party. That doesn't actually need the Liberal Democrats not to any considerable extent as soon as you have an election like the ones in two thousand fifteen and two thousand and nineteen where you have very considerable skepticism from potential anti-tory voters about the Labour leader. Whether that's because the significantly far to the left like Corbin or because of the Scottish nationalist issue like in two thousand fifteen with Ed milliband you actually make per difficult for quite a number of potential debris Democrat voters to vote Liberal Democrat because faced with a choice between Labour leader on the conservative state. They go with conservatives. I think that that goes back to the fact that if you look at what happened then to the Liberal Party after the first World War once he starts having these very heavy electoral defeats if you look in the in the nineteen twenties when it makes some recovery particularly in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine does so by taking votes away conservatives and not by taking votes away from the Labor Party so the idea that nobody can compete for itself and then offer corporation to liberal voters whether the old liberal voters all only put Democrat voters ignores the fine that the liberals and the Liberal Democrats have got complicated relationship with the Conservative Party and indeed with potential conservative voters. Another thing that's true. Is that the great wedge in this Mythical Progressive Liberal coalition was the one that Blair introduced by fighting the Iraq war. That's what broke it. So you said this period from ninety two to two thousand and ten but there is this huge dividing line in that period which is two thousand and three which both reinvigorates a Liberal Democrats missiles create this narrative. That's still playing out in the Labor Party about betrayal and what went wrong and is another version..

What are we talking about bringing bugged to? That's real. That is actually really not because like so I got inside. People know where I let people come to the front people drive out. It wouldn't take much and you don't WanNa say wouldn't take much for like someone to find out which apartment I've been in the building and then put something put a camera like. Oh it's easier than that. They can bug your car easily like you know so like even like like outside the in your complex. That's why I moved on my complex. Bugs like he was so scary. Oh Yeah Makarios booked for years and I didn't WanNa Bucko There was a thing with a guy like I never talked about this either but there was something like a politician that like. I was like dating briefly here. He's a California politician. Not like a big enough trump or something like that. You fucked trump too shabby all the way I would probably honestly I mean. I don't know anything. I don't know anything about politics so I don't know about them. Does he like Maryland? Ask you know what I mean. You have a little scandal. Hits your biggest scandal that you've been in my biggest people who say to block face with dark makeup. No not even make up it. Was You know the boss? Your face masks from Sephora. Oh my God these people tweet the picture on there like Oh Blairite musician. I'm like Oh my God psycho people say that about me my videos I see so tan and I have like the tennis and like your remember that era. Yeah I love. I still love Tampa. It's awful for you but Kathy will say crazy shit that you spray foam yes. It's coming off now but I actually embracing illness to now. Like I'm saying I go. I maybe I just have like during the mcaa vibe literally just meet you know He. He thought he was transgender. To did you ever read about that. But doesn't surprise me. A lot of these like rockers. Especially from that era. It's like they have like feminine haircuts. They're kind of feminine away their voice as and they were like this is the pays me. Well he actually thought he was. When I was a kid. Everyone said he was a girl he goes so for me. I was wrong he goes. I literally thought I was for a very long time. And he never really been talking about he just recently. I didn't know that either and I was like this is why Phil Can. Actually he'd literally transgender. I remember growing up and like I used to be a fan. I mean it's still NFL. Star I remember seeing mice based like feels like a whole different era the whole different world like different universe but I remember being like someday he's GonNa Transition. I remember saying that you're saying keep like hot considered it when he was younger. Yeah he's clearly going to write and I respect that I respect people who like let themselves be feminine or Masculine Women. Without having to feel the need to transition to right. Well I guess that's where it confuses me when is it considered trans like why we're so many straight people or gay people offended when it wasn't even about their culture or their people get. Trans people being offended but the funny thing is not very many people were there was a couple Trans youtubers. I came from but you didn't even. I didn't come for you very hard. I would just more so it was more so like a like A. I don't get it and more so like I like her but I don't get this type of thing like you can watch it. Wasn't that bad. You have to allow enough room in your mind for the possibility that maybe it is really how they're feeling right. He's not really. And then you're an asshole if you do come at them and she's not actual. Yeah and I feel like there's no way to convince you only know obviously people in my life like even wanted you to call me. I was like I was balling. I'm like I don't know like this was maybe mistake but this is how I feel. I don't know does you saw you feel things getting out getting money. And she's like she's like no she does. She does youtube but she doesn't do like she used to. I think just like one every couple and she doesn't she's not I wouldn't either if I I would. I would for fine. I wouldn't grind like Ryan. Yeah Oh yeah. We're like on all the time. Erlich pay Nina Video Anita well. She's not. I never really considered her too much of a trans activist. I mean I guess I guess she is. She doesn't talk about it a lot more. So just like socialite right like when I met her like we I went to. I was Jaclyn actually and we went to her table at the Abbey or something and like she was like dancing on the people like Paris. Hilton thing. Yeah okay so that's because I never. I don't know what activists conflict I don't know all that is. I feel like in Africa. Someone who tries to change things right and bring awareness to certain things and I feel like she doesn't. I'm anxious. I don't know I'm so bad I love. Gd I know she's like icon Erica. She was one of the first youtubers to trout. I watched her before I like. I remember watching. Her transition in her movie came out after a transition but before that I watch videos so she's one of the lake the Trans. Oh Yeah Oh my God. It wasn't that I mean I remember your maybe you remember. Do you remember like I really like your like Greg and so when that happened. What was shook? That's what I'm saying like nothing surprised me you know. Now I feel like it's so easy easy but it's a lot easier for people to come out. 'cause it's I mean. Some people can sit like accuse me of drain because it was tricky. Because it's trying to eat but I'm like a lot of people are talking about it more than anything. I think it had a discussion about it. I think a lot more people bringing awareness to transgender. And you know what I will say. I don't feel bad for making video. Kept it up. Because so many people came to me and said they felt some more ways and had some more stories. I was like okay. Well at least opening dialogue of gender fluidity and stuff like that I don't really consider myself gender fluid but that's a different thing. Now I think in your case is more like I said earlier. Not TO REHASH. But it's more of just like it's an ranges like mine was about transition then girls is like it's there but it's not like Shit. I have to go into US. Astronaut Condition Right now. We'll yeah that's like what was it. Like girlfriend. Said he like makes people transition because his his girlfriend transition did not like going by name and stuff. Like will the child's going to prison though? Actually I don't I'm I don't really understand what he did. That was illegal. He moved an underage girl into his home Who was having family issues and then had sex with her underage the second she turned eighteen. He groomed her from the age of fifteen eighteen. And then the second year in the house right. I have never talked with us because like too much like I. I watched it. And he's like a relevant. He's he's relevant but in a bad way. You know what I mean like. I'm just like the hoping he scares me. I don't think I've ever been scared of somebody like scares me. I don't know we never knew my win But Jacqueline Glenn She j- you know her. She hated me at the beginning of my omega. Because she's like atheists and used to make a lot of Christian content. Yeah she came from me. I feel like she controls. Do I mean I like her now? She knows the game. Yeah her a little expert from that doesn't like a native American. He said I was his dream girl like a couple of years ago and it was me dressed as Gerard Way and I was like oh it's social repose. He's like my dream girl and it was like Nina suit and tie with my thank. You cheated on her awful. Wait really you know any of this. I knew he lived in like bump up Virginia and she lived there with him and I was like. Oh a weird fucking scenario. When I met her they were dating and I saw him like in full costume. Bitcoin and I was like. That's Oh lucky hot. No I think he's not as we have different things..

"That this is winding down right away. And I think there will be a time difference between when the government says we've run out of time and then when something actually happens so I think we we are days away still from a solution but I would also say that. The lack of patience is not just from premiers. Not just from Canadians. It's also from inside the Prime Minister's own caucus. He certainly heard from all of them on Wednesday real concerns about how this get solved a lot of anxiety around that and trying to reflect back some of the concerns of Canadian so the pressure on him is really coming from everywhere and the government still believes as you heard there from Minister Blair that the way out of this is to talk although that move of the RCMP again. Symbolically is is really significant if they can actually if they can actually convinced the wet. Sowetan of that too. This is a minority government and the pressure comes not just from premieres across the country from the opposition as well have listened to what Andrew Scheer leader of the Conservative Party said yesterday and question period these anti-free-market anti energy activists have nothing to do with reconciliation. It is completely in just for up to fifteen hundred people to have to go without a paycheck because some people are breaking the law. Andrew Scheer has used the word week a number of times to describe the prime minister. How I mean. That's a loaded word. Obviously this is a political issue in a minority government but how damaging is all of this to Justin Trudeau? Well it's obviously a test of leadership and it's a test of leadership for prime minister that has now been tested on three major crises in the past two months they he is convening the incident response. Group this group of ministers and officials that he gets around the table. He's doing that this morning to discuss the downing of the plane in Iran Corona virus. And this I mean that's all still happening and it's all happened within two months there. There's a lot going on here. And there's certainly a test of of how he's government response to this and him in particular but I would say that this one is probably more directly related to him or closer to him because it is an issue that that he has talked about so much that he feels so strongly about which is reconciliation and trying to fix things with the indigenous peoples of this country. So there's a I think a recognition that if this doesn't go right if they can't get this to where they want it to be through talk and dialogue than there are some questions about what that means for the overall agenda reconciliation and I'm not suggesting it's dead or or anything like that or they can't proceed with other things that they're doing important things that they're doing but but I do think that the goodwill of Canadians and indigenous people might run out this opportunity because it is an opportunity in some ways doesn't actually bear fruit and that is something that the prime minister will wear. If this can't be solved proper given that are you surprised that he hasn't made an effort to go to northern BC and meet with hereditary chiefs directly. And I don't know whether that invitation would be extended but but he's he's had ministers outs delegated to deal with this people. Say this is so important to you. Why aren't you taking this on? Well listen I mean sure absurd something that they've talked about and they've considered for now they're leaving it with the ministers and I think the reason for that is is pretty simple if we get into a place where the prime minister is going off around the country. Every time there is a protest or a blockade around a project That certainly sends a signal about how you get his attention and how you potentially deal with projects like this you know. Tm X. is purchased and cleared but there are many first nations for of them anyway. That are against that project if they see that this is effective in some way. What's happening here? Who's to say that they won't try same thing and get the prime minister's attention that way they're they're making a decision on oil sense it probably the end of next week so you have to be careful. I think how you leverage the prime minister's own credibility and capital here But is it possible that at some point that becomes needed? Perhaps but I think that.

"Resolve it peacefully. And we've been supporting the efforts of the police. Ultimately they still have the the jurisdictional responsibility to enforce that injunction. And bring those barricades down. Everybody's been working hard to do that. Peaceably as possible. I think the the the steps taken by the RCMP. Today's ago are very significant and do create a set of circumstances that allow for peaceful resolution of this matter. But if the barricades need if the barricades don't come down what will you do? Well I think we will always consider the first of all our commitment to reconciliation and to address the underlying concerns and injustices that need to be addressed in that agenda will remain. We'll continue our commitment to continue to work on those those issues but we have tried very hard over the past two weeks to bring about the conditions that will allow for a peaceful resolution of these blockages ultimately if if that fails that the police have other resources available to them at their options in the use of of of of their legal authorities to remove those barricades I understand that the police have been you know. Patient and working hard themselves to try to resolve this peaceably. Will you send a deadline? If for the the barricades to be removed and I will tell you the urgency of getting this done. I'm strongly of the belief this needs to happen quickly and and and I believe barricades should come down. So why would you so? Would you set a deadline for the barricades to be down? The difficulty of setting deadlines is is is deadlines. Aren't necessarily how help wanted in a in a negotiation. I think everyone who is involved in this discussion has to understand that. There is an urgency to a peaceful resolution but it has to happen very quickly. The impact of these packages unacceptable Canadians. It's impacting innocent cages across the country. And it needs to inform both sides discussions. We understand that. Some of the many of the concerns that have been raised by the people of. What's The wet end on the blockades? We've tried in. I think the PF demonstrated a very professional approach to helping to resolve the issues in dispute but there is an urgency to to to resolving this as quickly as possible and the remaining case are unacceptable and need to come down and the remaining seconds that we have people outside of Edmonton showed up in pickup trucks and brought the Bra blockades down themselves. Are you concerned that there will be more of that sort of activity? I'm always concerned about an escalating tension and confrontation at at these sites and again. I know the goal of the police and certainly the goal of our government is to bring this about bring about a peaceful resolution of of this dispute to end those blockades to get the trains moving again and then to continuing our commitment to work with indigenous communities to address issues of reconciliation. That's the way we're committed to all of those things and mostly we're committed to a peaceful resolution of this matter but we've got to get those trains moving. Canadians are depending on bill.

Fifteen Year Olds Menia. Non Devel- disappeared in never came home. No one has ever been charged with her murder but there was a suspect never command like him. I'm Michelle Shepherd this season on uncover. I don't recall making that Com. That's fine if you don't recall it but I'm telling you that's what you told me. Uncover Sherman available now wherever you get your podcast. Abc's chief political correspondent. She's been listening in Rosemead wanting to you. What do you make of what you just heard from? Bill Blair the public safety minister a couple of things. Strike me there. I think there was a small shift in language. Both from Minister Blair and from other ministers that we've been hearing for from over the past twelve hours or so when he said the time has come for the barricades to come down That's a very different kind of statement than what we were hearing much earlier this week which was really just a call for patients although that that continues and and it seems to me that that shift in language we should probably read that as to your point of is there a deadline as as we are coming to the end of what the government has a deadline because they certainly have one minister. Miller has said that and others. They're not going to talk about it publicly because to to Minister Blair's point. That probably won't help negotiations but they certainly know that we are in the last days of this in terms of trying to talk it through what that means in terms of how the actually solve it. I'm not sure but I would say that they that they know that this is coming to ahead. Is that happening now because the RCMP has offered to withdraw from territory. Yeah I mean I think that was a significant move. The government sees it as such and now they hope that the wet Sowetan see it as such and more importantly frankly that the Mohawk community sees it that way you know that that has become sort of the flashpoint and obviously the biggest issue the blockade that has to come down right away. It's clear that the issues around what's happening on the wet. Sowetan territory are not going to solved this week or next week. These are much longer bigger longstanding issues so the priority for the government is to get the blockade down if they can or if they feel that if they can suggest that they have complied or answered one of the Web's weapons demands or conditions There's a hope that the Mohawk will see that and that they will be able to then pull away the Wetzel wet. And there's a few of those chiefs there today. They're meeting with the Mohawks near my last night and this meeting. I mean although all sides are saying it's really just a meaning of to give. Thanks I think the hope is that it's much more than that that that becomes a way for the two sides these two first nations to discuss how to deescalate this and for the Mohawks to say we've done. We've done a good job raising awareness and now we can let this go. That would be hope. I think one of the reasons why there might be that change in tone is because the prime minister is facing heat from premiers and territorial leaders over how he's handled this. There was a conference call last night. How did that go yeah so he? He spoke with him last night after they all convened the day before and expressed a lot of frustration. Some coming from quarters that you would expect people that don't love the Prime Minister Anyway. But the premiums and the premiums Berta last night's call from what we understand went fine. I would say but that the premier's did again talk about running out of patience and I would say one premier in particular has become problematic. And that's that's the premier of Quebec Hospital. Go who yesterday not only wanted that injunction to happen. Those injunctions were issued in Ceylon Bio to get the blockade. Remove there but made it very clear that he's quite happy for the police for the Celtics Quebec to come in and enforce that injunction. Let's have a listen. Well let's have listen. Here's what I said yesterday about. What's going on along Montreal south shore? We hope to have a peaceful solution but right now this blockade is illegal. It as a major impact on our economy on life of people Right now some people are losing their job. So it's about time. We have a plan to make sure that the laws are respected. Rosemary Barton how does that complicate? What the Prime Minister and government are trying to do. Well I mean it's the exact thing that everyone else is trying to avoid and I. It's a curious position from premier in a province. That is all too familiar with blockades and injunctions and calling the police and things going wrong happened in one thousand nine hundred for seventy eight days and police officer was killed. So it's a little curious that the premier seems so quick to go to that solution particularly given that blockade has not even been very long. I think I don't think there's any one. Certainly no one that I've spoken to that thinks that escalation will result in something good there too many historical examples of how these things have sort of spun out of. Control that said everyone is aware of the The real impact starting to be felt whether it be the layoffs or the people who can't get products and goods and the fact that this is probably going on a little too long that said I don't. I don't think.
