What the Deal to Legalize Marijuana Means for New Yorkers
"Cuomo reportedly struck a deal yesterday. To begin the process of legalizing recreational cannabis for adult use. In New York state proponents contend that opening the state up to legal weed will create an industry that will generate tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenue for the state. Yesterday's agreement specifically addresses the punishing toll that the uneven enforcement of low level marijuana offenses in the state has had on poor black and brown communities. It includes a provision to re invest millions in tax revenue generated from cannabis sales. Into these communities, and the state plans to set aside a portion of business licenses for people of color and women. Now, these plans have generally not produced the intended equity results. In other legal weed states. So can New York do better? What are the terms of the agreement? Why now? And when will you be able to walk into a store and buy some with me now on these questions, and more is Alice and Martin, co founder of Cannabis Wire, a news organization covering the cannabis industry nationally and globally she's been described as the queen of the we'd beat.

When can people walk into a store or I guess they'll be called dispensaries and buy marijuana products illegally. Well, you know, I don't have a crystal ball like anyone else. But I would say Ballpark at least a year, maybe two years. It takes time to get the market up and running. It takes that much time. Well, rulemaking. Of course, that's that's really the sort of sausage maker after bills passed, then you know a lot of lot of heads, get into the room and figure out sort of the nitty gritty details. Will there be any

WNBA players celebrate Warnock's projected win over Loeffler
"Right. Before the insurrection at the capital there was two senate runoff elections that the country had their is on in one of them. The reverend raphael warnock defeated the incumbent. Appointed senator kelly leffler in georgia. Kelly leffler for about ten years has been a partial owner of the atlanta dream of the wnba. She's now the majority owner but she's been around the team for now ten or eleven years and you may have heard her own players and much of the wnba is diametrically opposed to everything that leffler stands force. It was a very interesting situation to see everything develop earlier this week. And then how it works in the team dynamic for more on that. Let's welcome and renee. Montgomery actually a guard for the atlanta dream. She joins us this morning. She's actually rejoining us this morning a second time. She's been on with this. Good morning to you so i guess the first thing i gotta ask you is being a member of the team and understanding everything. That's going on on the floor in off the floor. What's the reaction of you and your teammates to misled losing this election. So i'm just gonna speak for myself and the reaction is. It's not even just her losing. Its rafael worn off. One and i wanna make sure that the messaging stays clear because there's some things that happened on january six is trying to take away from the fact that a black man is going to send it a jewish man from georgia's going to send it and we won the presidential race so i would say for me. It's a sweep. it's a three no sleep. So the the the feeling is happy. Rene speaking of january six. What are your thoughts on everything that occurred that day. Yeah you know. It's kinda like we all felt something was gonna happen. I was worried after november. Third ominously like when when the number started tied and we could see that joe biden. Really my win this thing you know. We all started to get a little nervous even here in georgia the aquarium shutdown coach color. They all boarded up their their buildings because we were all expecting some type of reaction and not a good one so then to see what happened on january six and see the lack of policing that was there it was it was disappointing and most call a spade a spade. It was terrorism. Domestic terrorism is the term that we should use for that renee montgomery innately. Sorry thanksgiving i was going to say what is say about the platform that the wnba has like you guys like even a month before. Colin kaepernick took a knee in two thousand sixteen. The wnba pre-game conference about police brutality. You guys were black. Lives matters t shirts before it was even a thing. Guys always been the leader at the forefront say about the platform that you guys have in the work that you guys have been doing you know. I hope people start to licking because a lot of brands. A lot of sponsors. They don't see the value in in women would say 'cause you know. I think i saw a tweet. From china robinson that said of sponsorship for women athletics how chow especially now knowing the impact that a women's league not just so a player but a whole week and have i don't understand why there's no interest but i do hope that just seeing how things transpired and how everyone to see what's going on. I hope that there is some value added to women now. Renee montgomery of the atlanta dream is joining us. This morning on keyshawn jay williams zubin were presented by progressive. Insurance and rene is with us on the goodyear hotline to robinson by the way. Espn women's college basketball analyst shaina. Yes shoutout. I want to ask you this because people may not want to go back to leffler because i think this is just so fascinating with how clear she's been in how clear you guys have been She used to be for people. That aren't aware that maybe don't follow the dream on everyday basis. She used to be a constant present. at games. a practice you'd be a team functions. He was always be sitting in the front row. She was very active owner. Obviously things have changed when she went to the senate got other responsibilities. I just wonder what your relationship is with her. The team's relationship with her you know even before the senator race i would just fear before the games. We've been to her house. Where team function. But i mean any of the players know you're not usually best friends with owner in general you know you typically would talk more to your g Even when it comes to contracts and stuff so we did see her there and we would wait and she was you know. I know that she released herself. From you. know day to day duties as she became a senator but she was president and the wnba. I know probably the letter was her trying to distance herself. Thing is how she's republican and the wnba. Is you know highly majority. Lgbt in black and brown community. So i can understand why she's trying to distance ourselves but it wasn't the case beforehand. Rene we're kind of personal discussions if any at all have you had. We'll often about social justice nine. I'm you know this was a typical owner-player relationship. So you know. I never talked to my minnesota on her about social justice. And i know that this time is is different but by the time that all of these things try Started to unfold. You know it was already. She was already too far. gone by. then how do you feel now that everything is transpired and she still co owner of the team for me and this is gonna be unpopular to say but for me. I'm sure she's not the only owner. That probably feels the way she feels. And so i hope that the wnba and hope that you know even her you know i. I've already posed the question. I don't know why he would want to own a wnba team. If you have to write a letter to the commissioner opposing. Everything that that team is standing for you know. Our team is the atlanta dream. And i don't know if people know that's from martin. Luther king's dream speech. That's how we got our name so if you oppose everything that we fundamentally stand for. I don't see how you can build a relationship there. I don't know why you'd want to be there

The first vaccinations of healthcare workers loretto hospital on chicago's west side or black americans. Make up forty percent of covid deaths equity isn't part of our covid nineteen strategy. It is our strategy in washington. Dc more vaccinations at howard university hospital. As public health officials including the surgeon general are now highlighting the critical need to reach communities of color in the months ahead just over half of states with publicly available plans for vaccine distribution. Have at least one mention of incorporating racial equity. it's not just ethically permissible. But it's an ethical imperative. They've suffered historical An unconscionable deficits in health and every can imagine. Kenny brown is a community organizer in columbus ohio. Who's fighting vaccine skepticism in minority neighborhoods. There's a distrust. what's his deadly valid. Because of some of the things that happened to our community in the past in newark new jersey's multi-ethnic ironbound neighborhood. Where the kovic positivity rate tops a staggering forty percent peres told us she scared of the vaccine even though her father has been hospitalized with covid for more than a month. There's a great amount of mistrust. Vicky hernandez runs a community center here.

Some Americans are skeptical of a COVID-19 vaccine
"Health. Experts are worried that some people who are skeptical of coronavirus vaccine or the people who need it the most including latinos and african americans who make up a disproportionate number of people hospitalized or killed by covid nineteen but there are efforts to fight vaccine skepticism within those communities. Here's correspondent adrian for ito who reports on race and identity for npr. Maria does not intend to get vaccinated. At least not right away. I definitely will be one of the people that won't take it. You know in the beginning players. She is not generally a vaccine skeptic. A discipline since this new i am not comfortable of getting it surveys. Show that kind of skepticism about the covid vaccine is widespread. Nearly forty percent of latinos told pew researchers. They would probably or definitely not get the vaccine more than half of black respondents said the same white people have also expressed hesitancy but the reluctance among african americans and latinos is especially worrying because their rates of infection are so much higher. It's it's a major concern dr keith. Norris's among an army of people ramping up efforts to ensure latinos african americans and other people colored. Trust the vaccine. He's hearing a wide range of concerns. Many stemming from a long history of racism in medical research concerned about being a guinea pig concerns about pharma and federal government. And then there's lots of social media messaging downplaying the importance of coronavirus. Norris works for ucla and is leading california effort funded by the national institutes of health to build vaccine trust. The strategy is to get clear. Concise information to black and brown communities with help from so-called trusted gers people with existing relationships in communities with high covid risk. People like tony. Wafer a longtime los angeles-based hiv educator in may he lost five close family members to covid. He's talked about that a lot as he's encouraged black friends and neighbors to volunteer for vaccine trials and now to take the vaccine is hard to say. Get getting this trial and these were people gonna help you win. These are the same white. Have been kicking your ass alway. You know what i mean. He says he acknowledges people's skepticism and meets them where they are. I tell people what are you. Won't they say well. I'm all blood pressure medicine. I'm taking central cholesterol. So you know before you've taken that pill clunk child out of thin air then they go really yeah. It was the clinical shelters. Ucla's keith. norris says this outreach. We'll take many forms in person on the airwaves and in virtual town halls. He says researchers will track. What messages about the vaccine. People respond to to see if there are certain areas that tend to have a greater impact moving people from being reticent to being willing. I'm not gonna go. Set is with sonny seattle health san diego clinic that serves a large mexican and mexican. American population fears about vaccine. Safety are compounded by language issues and concerns about immigration status. The clinic trained community outreach workers to answer questions about the vaccine the reason why this is working is because people are not relying on a government entity posed information especially due to the last four years. People rather i hear from someone that they already have a relationship with. She expects the vaccine to gain acceptance over time but she also says many of the clinics patients are already eager for the vaccine because they've spent months risking themselves in essential. Jobs have lost friends and family. Don't wanna see anyone else. Any other loved one. Have to go through that for these people. The vaccine means being able to continue to provide allies for their loved ones and to be there for them in the long run. She says that's the message. She intends to keep driving home.

"To announce but pse for brown men we are your host. This is this year my name is relevant and this is a podcast about brown men talking about issues that matter to you we talk about things that we don't usually talk about in the brown communities. We're just three regular kompass sharing our experiences to inspire positive chains combine. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to las campus lounge in today's episode. We're gonna be talking about thanksgiving Would it means to us how we how we celebrated growing up and how we celebrate it now and will. We hope to pass onto the next generation. Yeah thanksgiving man. you know. it's had its evolution with me you know and with with my partners over the years and And my family. You know and thanksgiving. First and foremost is family time That's what it is for me as an individual as a family man and with that we can't Ignore the historical facts. And maybe some folks don't know the historical facts As kids growing up you know we were. We were taught the fantasy that the pilgrims sat down with What the native americans and broke bread literally and had a feast. Because the native americans you know helped out the the pilgrims and whatnot otherwise they would have died in the in their first winters in in Ekos well that's like. I said that that's actually a a fairytale. The reality is thanksgiving was actually a celebration of the european american the white settlers after they basically slaughtered a group of indians a group of americans and after they did that the after the european american settlers did that they feasted they. They celebrated the kill basically and that became a an annual tradition. You know of celebrating. Celebrating the the coin conquest of a group of native americans and along the way the celebration began to lose its history and it became What we call a tradition and a tradition is basically so then that's passed on from generation to generation where you forget the historical origin that is origins of thanksgiving here. In the united states of america is basically the slaughtering in massacring of native americans. That's the real story behind thanksgiving. I know it's it's an ugly truth that people don't want to hear to wanna talk about probably don't even know. But that's the reality you know and for me knowing that it's a mixed feeling for me Thanksgiving that's why with myself my family and my circles. We usually don't call thanksgiving. We sometimes just called. Thanks taking But now they're boulder. I'm a little mark more gutter baldo on. Just call it family. You know it's It's family day. Well that's really. Well put because a growing up. I was fair. That fantasy of we really make costumes in elementary school of the little feather and and a pilgrim hat and we had plays and that was really beautiful. It was it was something You know. I believed in as a little kid and then and then You grow up and you're coming up as a as a young kid in east. La and your mom and dad first generation. He got knows and they did their part. I think in a from a good place to do some assimilation so to speak and he said okay. Well here in the united states We do thank the we or a you know. We do thanksgiving in terms of a turkey and all that but and she knew we loved it right. It was really good and it was a good way to bring in Bring us all into the table right. Food brings people together. And that's that's very true for the latino community and and of course he would add flavor to it right. You know don molly s and other traditional foods but in mexico. Yeah you don't celebrate thanksgiving the way the way. It's celebrated here in the united states. But like you ruben. I once i started learning the reality of the origins of thanksgiving it. it's i struggled with it as a young man. And now's a older man. I i don't struggle with it as much. I just try to think about what. How do we use this day and for family. You know like you said we've been. How do we use and adopt to this day for family and try to look at the good side of the tradition because after all what does it mean to us now as grown men. We're creating our own traditions for families. We're creating our own celebrations if you will of a holiday a national holiday in how we know like it or not. We're here in the united states and like it or not. We have kids and like it or not. We have to struggle with this kind of stuff and it kinda sucks a little bit because You kind of want to tell your kids that the origins but hall soon. And i guess we'll talk about that later put but anyways so for me what it means really is just like you said it's about family. It's about being thankful and not necessarily trying to stir up negative thoughts or feelings about a historical the historical events because then that just pisses me off and puts me in a really bad mood and not want to do that to my family.
C.D.C. Pleads With Americans to Stay Home on Thanksgiving
"Right now. Laboratories are warning shortages of supplies likely will create more delays in getting test results. Out especially as case numbers surged joining us. Now physician and fellow at the brookings institution dr patel. She's a former obama white house. Health policy director in an msnbc medical contributor dr patel. It's good to see this morning. We also heard yesterday from the cdc that said please avoid travel now for thanksgiving a week out and we got our first news briefing in four months from the task force. The white house task force. Dr burks and dr fauci. What did you take away from what they said yesterday. And what's your view of these incredibly stark numbers. We just saw good morning to everyone. I think that take away from yesterday was actually both an incredible dire warning about thanksgiving about the numbers that we can expect and then also a ray of sunshine. If we can actually do what we need to do. Dr fauci spoke about the extraordinary. And casey mentioned it. The extraordinary progress we've made with vaccines from operation warp speed as well as global cooperation. But a vaccine does not mean that you can actually just kind of read the sigh of relief and go about your merry ways. It really does mean is. Dr burke said yesterday that we have to do things today and change behaviors today in order to be able to have a light at the end of the tunnel and benefit from the vaccines and willie looking at those pictures. I can't help but shudder and fear that some of those people in line are actually doing testing so that they can go and celebrate thanksgiving. I i know that a lot of what my patients are saying. And and that is frankly a big concern your task force and the cdc again was clear yesterday. Small groups within your own household and do not even travel at this point for thanksgiving. That's about as serious as that warning could be so dr patel as you rightly. Say great news on the vaccine front but for most people in this country. That's at least what six months away to get that so we have six months. Let's say from here to there where anything can happen. If we don't have further mitigation efforts from your point of view based on these numbers that we're seeing the trajectory you say were on and that we are on should we go further nationally or at least state by state in terms of stay at home. Orders for example mask mandates. What would you like to see. Yes this is absolutely the conversation that i hope every governor again because we have no national strategy what we did not hear yesterday was kind of an announcement or a bold proclamation about what we can count on at the national level. So you're right willie. We do need to have mask. Mandate that the state levels nationally. We just need all except that wearing a mask and make a difference. Especially if you're going to go and celebrate thanksgiving with people who are not normally in your household. Here's something that i think is incredibly controversial. That happening were closing schools. Before we're making mold steps close or reduce indoor capacity of a restaurant than places where we know people are getting together. I would do the reverse. I would not penalize younger children where we have seen that. We have not been having as much of an outbreak as we have in other settings that people are moving towards indoors shops and restaurants and then i really hope that on a policy level that we can resurrect some stimulus funding because these businesses especially during a holiday season are dying on the vine and again. It's all unnecessary. We've had zero ability to offer small business owners an away to have reliable testing to even keep their employees safe. And that's what we've decided to do in this country. So that's what i want to ask you about in terms of testing dr patel's a former white house health and policy director. I know the biden team says on day one. The president plans to invoke the defense production act on things like testing these lines. That we're seeing Football fields of cars people waiting for hours and hours sometimes days to get a false result on testing is a massive almost the number one impediment to mitigation because as they're waiting in line. They're missing work if they have work. They're exposing themselves to people as they're waiting for these tests and these test results that sometimes take days to come and for those who are lucky enough. Maybe they can buy a test. But it's not like that for the rest of america. Who is in this situation right here. Which is so unacceptable. Had president trump invoked the deep on testing. Would we be in this situation right now. No your outrage. I can't tell you how much that outrageous felt by so many healthcare workers around the country. Here here's something to wrap our brains around. We were able to develop to at least two highly efficacious vaccines and cheaper than it is to get a pcr nasal swab which your head around that that is unacceptable that somehow we have decided that the ability to actually offer employers to open safely away to actually keep schools open in a way for americans to feel. Testing does not replace masks and prevention whatsoever but it certainly could be a critical piece in finding those asymptomatic carriers the majority of people we know who are either infected or are able to transmit the coronavirus right now if we had reliable cheap and easy testing. It doesn't even have to be perfect makeup. We could do something every three days. We know that that's probably the time period where we could catch the majority of cases and this is just a system failure on all levels that the fda is cdc initially relying on flawed testing in the beginning and then again no national vocation of the defense production. Act at no pressure to try to identify how we can get testing especially to the hardest hit communities black and brown communities where we still have really pathetic testing eighth and turnaround times stability and the and the needless loss of life here is mind. Boggling dr kavita patel. Thank you very much for being on the show this
Inside Biden's COVID-19 Team
"A big part of what's lean gander is doing this week is being a spokesperson. Getting the biden. Message out about what they need and what they plan to do. The president-elect as talked about appealing to governors to try to enforce mask mandates it. Do you think those would make a difference because there are places like new york. Where you and i both live where those are in place and yet we've got big outbreaks in different communities. Well i think the key is that one how enforceable is a mandate to who is issuing the mandate. Is it somebody that these communities respect. Believe trust and i think that makes a national mandate both enforcement issues as well as the trust shoes very challenging. I do think you know a mandate coming from a governor. For example governor of south dakota that would be taken very differently would be received very differently by people in south dakota. Then if the president were issuing that same mandate should we have a national testing plan or has the boat sailed on that already so the current administration has actively discouraged. Testing has said oh. We're testing too much. That is definitely not what you're going to hear under the new administration if anything you're going to see a massive ramping up of testing and really trying especially in communities of color that have been really hard hit to make sure we have much better equity in access. But who's who's responsible for that. Is that this sort of patchwork we've got now of some state some cities. Some urgent cares or is it the federal government saying okay. We're doing widespread testing. Yeah this is the place where you're going to see. The federal government really stepping in one of the places where they could have a real impact is invoking the defense production act that would mean the federal government could compel manufacturers to crank up production. President trump has done this to a limited degree but the biden team wants to use the law. More broadly both with respect to personal protective equipment as well as scaling up production of test kits. So i i really do think we need a national plan here and that will include testing Not just people who have symptoms but people who have no symptoms expanding testing and encouraging mask. Mandates are things president-elect biden could do once. He takes office in january. That's two months from now. Normally an incoming administration would be getting information from the outgoing one. But selene says that's not happening. How much does president. Trump's refusal to concede and this sort of official transition being stuck in limbo. How much does that get in your way. Well that's a huge problem. We know historically that transitions are real period of vulnerability for the country in terms of national security. And that's whether that's a a foreign threat a terrorist threat or a threat like the corona virus and so that really could very well translate into americans dying unnecessarily to give you some examples of the kind of information we want and we can't get company gloves. do we have. How many syringes. Where are we in negotiating contracts with pharmaceutical companies with the logistics of delivery. Where are we in terms of developing databases to track who's gotten vaccinated who needs to be vaccinated. I mean those are things that are in a wait and boring nuts and bolts kind of stuff. But that's the stuff that you need to be able to plan a big response like this in terms of scaling affects nations even if the to really promising looking ones pfizer moderna if they are skilled up distribution. Is this huge challenge. How are you all thinking about vaccine distribution and getting it into the communities that that need it most so why you have to scale up. The this is where really moving forward with. The transition is really going to be important because we need to have a better understanding. What's happening on the inside with the pharmaceutical company capacity. And then once you've manufactured these doses how how do you distribute them in wear and some of that will depend on the characteristics of the vaccines. So you know the the pfizer vaccine needs to be deep-frozen minus seventy celsius. Well most family doctors. I don't know that any family doctors have the capacity to store a vaccine at that temperature. a lot of community hospitals will not have that kind of capacity either. And so what you're really looking at is having probably big academic hospital centers major health systems. Maybe pharmaceutical retail chains having central depots. Where they can do that kind of storage. But that means it's going to be harder to deliver that vaccine in particular to rural areas. So my guess is you're going to see the pfizer vaccine really targeted to urban areas. That have the capacity to deal with what we call that cold chain of freezing whereas the modern vaccine which is Which has less stringent temperature requirements in his relatively stable for a month at higher temperatures. You're going to see them journal. Vaccine probably prioritized for rural areas. And as you know a couple other vaccines emerged from the pipeline. You'll see further and further sort of targeting based on how easy it is to get those vaccines to those parts of the country. How effective those particular vaccines are for. Certain patient populations you know he might have pfizer here new york city and you might have maduna in rural wyoming listening to you. Describe the kind of logistics around that. I keep thinking about communities that have been particularly hard hit when we are talking about black and brown communities indigenous communities Ease there. I guess a painful chance that given the kind of medical infrastructure that some of these vaccines require that they're going to be doubly hit in the vaccine rollout process. Yeah this is something that we're really attentive to an it is a tricky one because there are issues a vaccine skepticism and hesitancy in some of these communities for good reason. And if you say we're going to prioritize communities of color for vaccination there will be a contingent of people who will say. Oh so we're going to be guinea pigs for this new vaccine so you have to address those very real concerns even while you are trying to prioritize because the fact is these are communities whether it's the navajo in the southwest or the south bronx here in new york city is their communities have been hit really hard and continue even now to be. Hit harder So we really do need to prioritize them if we're going to maximize the impact of the vaccines. We've been talking about trust. And i have to ask you about one of your colleagues on the advisory board Zeke emanuel who quite famously wrote an essay. saying he'd like to die at seventy five and that made a lot of people in the disability community really angry. How do you get their trust. I noticed the president-elect mentioned them specifically in his speech how do you their trust with him as a part of this group. Well i don't really want to speak to to zeke in particular but in terms of the disability community ron clean and i actually co hosted a podcast together. He had to step away for biden campaign. Were going to be the chief of staff. He's going to be the chief of staff for for President-elect biden and ron and i interviewed early on during the pandemic rebecca coakley. Who's with the center for american progress. Who is a disability rights. Activist really did listen to her concerns. Were really very much attentive to the needs of that community as well so we are taking notes. We are reaching out to people from the disability community to better understand what policies they need.
Cuomo may sue Trump administration over vaccine distribution
"New York governor Andrew Cuomo is threatening to sue the Trump administration if it does not adopt a more equitable plan to distribute a vaccine for Corona virus. NPR's Windsor Johnson reports. The governor says the president's current proposal could result in unequal distribution to some communities of color. Governor Cuomo says President Trump's plan to distribute the vaccine through private companies would mean that lower income communities would not have access to it. He thinks he's going to have drug stores deliver it in hospitals delivery. I'll tell you what that's going to do that's going to leave at the black and Brown community. Cuomo says Residents from low income communities have higher Corona virus infection rates, highlighting the disproportionate impact of the virus on people of color. President Trump on Friday criticized Cuomo's plan calling for an independent panel to review any vaccine before it's distributed in New York State.

"Black and brown community. Big boy's neighborhood. Hey, Natalia, neighborhood newsman, and please hit me with this story right here. I'm going to preface this by saying, l with a lot of ill like and I don't like to, you know, I tried. My heart is in my best to not always judge people in to kind of try to always wonder like, Well, baby. That's what I'm telling you this time. Judging this whole situation. I mean, I know whatever makes you happy, but this is just creepy. Okay, So it all started off with an influence Our social media influencer. She's from Russia just gives you a little hint with disco. And her name is Marina. And what does that mean? Oh, my God. There he is. Now. Our worsening feel. Yes, I know. They're gonna be so mad at me is so mad at me. So name is Greene. She was married to a guy for 13. Years he had about. I believe five Children, and she legally adopted the five Children. She was a parent to these five Children write. One of them was named Vladimir. Now when she's first was married to the sky way. Hold on. It was a Russian guy named Vladimir. Right. It's okay. You know, let you know Vladimir. So when they when she first was married Tio Vladimir's dad, he was seven years old, and she was 22 years old. Now fast forward to the end of her marriage. She slept with Vladimir. Oh, she slept at their stepson. Okay, so that I mean, like, you're basically raising this kid. And now one day, your son legally that this is your side. Her ex husband said Yeah. One night I heard her and my son having sex. I didn't know what to do. And then she came back into the room. And she slept next to me. And he was like I was so shocked. I didn't know it was gonna have my they end up getting divorced. And then I was ended in entanglement in the untenable entanglement will make it so crazy. She then goes and decides to marry Vladimir. She now legally has married her son that she was a stepmother to and now they just announced. They're having a baby. Damn! So let me ask you this, okay? She was married to Vladimir's dead. This you got with Vladimir. Now she's married to Vladimir. She probably didn't even have to put in a change of name like you don't know, saying because no is probably the same last name. Exactly. Wow. So bad Groves, isn't it? It's just so strange. Mom hurt her smashing my son. He came and got in the same bed with me. Yes, Like nothing, man. Come on, man s O crazy, man. I mean, like the whole thing is like they have a 15 year age difference. That wasn't even the craziest part of this whole story for view, Which is the fact that it was like you put brown this kid since he was seven years old, and now you're having his baby.

"And brown community. Big boy's neighborhood. Your neighborhood news. Hey, Natalia. This way. Fair conspiracy. Is ridiculous. They got me messed up, Pig. They got really messed up Just because you do look at it. And you You can't help but think that something really, really bad or strange is going on. So if you if you don't know what way fair is it is a furniture website company and I've been on there before looking for you know all we need a coffee table or a chair or something. I definitely Ivan ordered, but I definitely have looked on their well. Now people online are claiming that way there is involved in child trafficking. And this That all started with these videos going around of people showing certain items on the website being sold for outrageous amounts of money, but also the description of these things that are being sold that have names of girls who are missing. So listen to this video that was on tick talk that has been taken down several times, but I was able to save it for you Guys take a listen to this guy explaining it. Annabelle. She's missing the NFL. $10,000. Yeah, we're not done. Kyla Coleman Missing look kinda the same spelling for $12,000. Why are we selling a two door metal cabinet for 12 grand? There's another video to where it's not just the cabinets that they also found a set of pillows and shower currents that were listed for $10,000. Like you go, we Why are these things so expensive? And why do the names match up? Well in a statement, Wayfair did note that these are our industrial grade cabinets. And that they are actually priced correctly. But Wayfair has also taken down all of these items. Tio change the description of the price point, but it just I don't know big. It makes me feel realized The names the saying, and I mean, maybe there's a lot of names of different things on there. But, man, that sounds crazy. I mean, another thing that they tried to say was, you know, over 800,000 Children go missing every year in the United States and like just like you said, big, there are a lot of names, but it just the coincidence. Kids just doesn't feel right. And I'm telling you, child trafficking is a real thing that happens, and I would not be surprised if they found new ways for this to work like it just as creepy like Like I went down the rabbit hole with it Big. I was looking at different videos. Ah, lot of people had different kinds of screen shots and people marking things. But when you see a cabinet, this two door cabinet for over $10,000 with unique, it's expensive, But you keep talking about the price, I guess. Wait very expensive anyway are no wait. They're actually like that's why I bit on there before cause you Khun get something like a like a desk or a chair and it's not as expensive as if you were going to like a pottery barn or something like it's not. Tonight here, but it's just it's more reasonable. You know what I mean? So it's like if I saw something for $10,000 in there, I'd be like, Wait. This feels lonely off. So again. They're denying the claims. But you and a lot of these videos are being marked online as well as like fake news and conspiracy. But that's what it is Lord conspiracy theory, So we'll just have to pray that this is not what's happening on this website. No, man. Good Lord, have mercy Do even just looking at it. I was like, what about looking at here? You know, saying And why are these names with Missing people like already we shall see, you know. Is it a coincidence on for more neighborhood news?
