The Vilification of Successful Black Men With Dr. Ben Carson

"Of speaking with justice clarence Thomas at some point earlier this year and it's just an amazing thing to hear how he bought in to the angry black man ideology until he woke up to the truth and we just see the astonishing accomplishments that he has made just a hero and yet he like you is mostly vilified in the mainstream media and by the Democratic Party as somehow getting it wrong. I mean, it's just fascinating to me that you could be one of the greatest surgeons in the world. You could be in the cabinet of the president of the United States. You could be a Supreme Court Justice. It's just amazing that the two of you, for example, who have been such a so dramatically successful, would be vilified. What do you think is behind that? Who is behind that? Well, you know, I grew up in Detroit, a very liberal place. And Boston a very liberal place. Went to New Haven, a very little place, and then Ann Arbor, very liberal place, and in Baltimore, very little place. So I was a very liberal individual. Until I did something that the liberal has never supposed to do. I listened to a conservative, I listened to Ronald Reagan. And I said, this guy sounds just like my mother. He's saying exactly the same stuff the same philosophy. And I started really examining my belief system. I was noticing that so many of the patients that I was seeing at each Baltimore. Were dependent on the government. They were perfectly able bodied people. I said, this is wrong. And there is a system that is absolutely deleterious to the aspirations of these people. And that's really when I started making a significant change. Once the media for whom I was a darling discovered that I had made that change and now I was a conservative has evil. He's an evil person. He's a terrible, terrible person. Because they don't want the narrative of self reliance out there.

The Truth About the Black American Experience With Ben Carson

"The joy of speaking to doctor Ben Carson. We're talking about the film, Uncle Tom two. I think most of you can guess it's the sequel to Uncle Tom. One, both produced by our friend Larry elder and just featuring a smorgasbord of Swedish spokespeople. No, a smorgasbord of black spokespeople telling the truth about the black American experience at the head of the pack, our friend doctor Carson, doctor Carson, you were just sharing some of the history. This is mostly unknown in America, which is why I'm so aggressive in pushing my audience to see Uncle Tom two. It is really astonishing that in our lifetimes, what is in this film has been just pushed to the side, ignored, and this is the actual history, and it is precisely the opposite of the victim's story narrative that we've heard over and over and over again. Including from the mainstream media constantly. Well, the mainstream media is a major culprit in all of this. Take, for example, the George Floyd situation. It was played incessantly 24/7. You would have thought that black men were being killed by police every day that it was a common phenomenon. We have some good friends in Australia. We talked to them. They said, what's happening over there they're killing all the black men. But the fact of the matter is this great conservative organization, The Washington Post, even says the number of unarmed black men killed by policemen in a year is less than two dozen significantly less than 2000.

Dr. Ben Carson Sets the Record Straight on Black History in America

"Most blacks were in the Republican Party during reconstruction and after that. And the real change occurred with FDR. And the programs. And he did make some significant changes because we had a very racist society before that. And I think that's when things really started changing. Particularly after World War II and people started saying, you know, these black soldiers helped us to maintain our freedom. You had the crack air force group, the red tails, and I think people began to change their opinion and FDR helped to speed that along. But, you know, the blacks really were looking at who was benefiting them. And, you know, Hoover's policies were not beneficial to the blacks by any stretch of the imagination. He basically just didn't care. And because Roosevelt showed that caring aspect, I think that's when the change began. And then during the civil rights movement, it was actually the Republican Party that pushed for voting rights and that pushed the civil rights bill. And it was the Democrats who resistant to that. And then the Democrat subsequently said, well, the Republicans in the Democrats switched. And they became the opposite of who they were. And the Democrats became the Republicans. Well, there was only one that was strong fairman. So, you know, through that argument on the window, that's not true. But what the Democratic Party then learned to do is to present themselves as the savior for black people.

Dr. Ben Carson on Larry Elder's Power-Packed Documentary 'Uncle Tom 2'

"Ben Carson, welcome to the program. I always a pleasure to be with you. I love talking to you about anything, but I have you on today specifically to talk about the new film. I've told my audience about it a bunch of times, Uncle Tom, to tell us what you can about this film because from my point of view, we have to re-educate America on American history and a big part of that, of course, is black history. And the level of either ignorance or disinformation that many of us have on the story of black America after the Civil War, it's almost unbelievable. So I want to congratulate Larry elder and you and everyone who's participated in this. But tell us about the film. Well, I was glad to participate in the film that Larry did. And it helps black people to see that you don't have to support Biden to be black. Like you said. Now you're putting your phrasing at negatively. You don't have to support Biden to be black. How about you can't support Biden if you're pro black? I mean, it's almost funny to me how crazy we are that we kind of act like we have to, well, I mean, you're saying it. I'm interrupting, but it's amazing how bad it is. It's been going on for decades and decades, roughly since Lyndon Johnson. Well, you know, so many people are corralled. By political correctness, by wokeness, by wanting to fit in. You know, I noticed this dramatically when I was in high school and inner city high school in Detroit. And everybody had talk a certain way you wear certain clothes. You do certain things. Or they call you names. And they ostracize you.

The Federalist's Emily Jashinsky on Shifts in Media Culture

"Think that any of this is going to change? I mean, Brian stelter is now flipping burgers somewhere. Cuomo is declared himself a free agent on social media despite the fact that nobody actually wants to hire him. Have you seen any trend any signals since you have the culture beat of the federalists that media culture is waking up or is it just the most woke of the woke are losing, but the institutions like CNN are still going to go down with the ship? The business model here is really an interesting aspect of that conversation because on the surface you do see some moves like at CNN, the new guy there, Chris licht, who took over for Jack Zucker, wants to make CNN the sort of global neutral brand again that's doing serious hard hitting foreign reporting. That's why stelter's out the window. That's why I didn't do it doesn't do Twitter doesn't really believe in Twitter for journalists and is trying to make all of these moves to reign in the coverage to tell his anchors to stop using the big lie, but it's not working. And the dynamic is so interesting because I think there are some older, more sober voices who lived through the old media period and have seen the transition and are horrified by it, but it's kind of too late because they've let it in the door. And they've let it in the door at a time when our media ecosystem is totally splintering. So The Old Guard is less powerful than it ever has been and people can cluster in these niches. The wine moms can watch Don lemon and lap it up and Stephen Colbert, but you know, you used to have Johnny Carson's writers sitting in Manhattan every night thinking, what is going to make America laugh?

Brandon Tatum Is a Voice for the Truth

"Were talking about with regard to black America is that the loudest voices in black America became the voices sometimes explicitly sometimes implicitly of Marxism of atheist Marxism of division of stoking division between the races between the classes and so on and so forth. And you get sucked into that. And it's only by a miracle by God's grace that somehow you get pulled out of that and you're able to see what you see. And now you have been a voice for the truth, not just in this film, Uncle Tom too. But you have been loud and proud about this stuff. How did you get involved in doing your radio show, your podcast? What led you into all that? Because most police officers, it's interesting enough that you become a police officer. But then how do you get activated in that way? What happened to make you say, I want my voice out there? Well, it had been when I was policing and a lot of the guys that I was around, all of the guys that I was cool with, patrolling with their own conservatives. And so they were completely reiterate to me are informed me that, hey, man, you're not a Democrat. I mean, look at the policies and look at the way you stand. What are you staying with God? Look how strong you are as a Christian. They don't embody any of the Christian values that you hold dear to your heart. And then Barack Obama came out and started bashing police and I said I'd never vote for another politician ever in my life that won't stand up for the men and women that were at a uniform. And so that led me to looking over on the other side, looking at the Republicans. Because I believe that Republicans are racist white people when I was growing up. But then I said, you know what? You know, when I got saved, I said, you know, look, we're all children of God. Let me give people a fair shake. Cheap people the way I want to be treated. And let me give the Republicans a let me get a police of trial. Let me get Republicans a try. And I love big Carson. He dropped out endorsed Trump. I went to a Trump rally and I was blown away.

"And there is a great candidate running against Peter Meyer, who, by the way, some of you might not live in Michigan, some people might not even been to Michigan. Some of you say, I don't really care that much about Michigan, we should. Michigan is a great place. But I will say this, you should care about getting these impeachment voters. Out of line and better candidates in place, and the man running against him is John Gibbs, who's terrific from western Michigan, he joins us right now. John, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, thanks for having me on. It's great to be able to spend some time with you today. Likewise, tell us why you're running and tell us what is your message against the snake Peter Meyer. Peter Meyer betrayed everyone in our district. Bayes after being in Congress find literally days in there. His first vote he takes is to impeach Trump. People put in their sweat and their tears and their money to Peter Myers campaign helping him win just as you guys did, Charlie, and he was saying all the right things. People thought he was a real deal. When he got in there, just a few days after he really backstabbed everyone. So he is not providing leadership. He is not representing the people that voted for him. And so I felt that I needed to do it. I wasn't planning to. After serving our time in the Trump administration, I was maybe going to work for a think tank and be out of the spotlight for a while, but some of our friends from our former White House said, dude, Peter Meyer voted in Peter Trump. You should go back home and run against them. So I decided to pray about it, think about it, get my ducks in a row. It's jumped in head first. It got president Trump's endorsement. Got doctor Ben Carson's endorsement who I worked under in the Trump administration and said, yeah, we really need to do this. We really need to provide leadership for the good people here in west Michigan. There's not getting it right now under Peter

Jim Hanson and Corey DeAngelis Discuss Carson v. Makin

"Corey D'angelo is with the association or the American federation for children. And he has been just a leader in the fight for school choice. And we got two wins. First, the Supreme Court decision I forgot, and then also the Arizona decision to have the entire state be run with the money following the children. Congratulations, because you were a part of both those. Maybe not the Supreme Court case as much. But tell us the implications of the scotus decision first. Yeah, totally. This is the Carson V Macon case coming out of Maine. It was a 6 three decision in favor of parental rights and education. And the basic takeaway is if you're gonna have a school choice program, you can't discriminate against religious families and religious schools by excluding them. That's what was happening in Maine. And it pretty much reaffirmed what we already found in the Espinosa V Montana decision in 2020, which was a 5 four decision on the part of parents. And it also reaffirmed that school choice has no issue with the separation of church and state, which is not itself in the constitution. For the same reasons that pell grants don't violate the establishment clause with the pell grant for low income kids, you can take the money, you can go to a public or private university, a religious or non religious university, and you have a choice in the matter. Same thing with pre-K programs, same thing with Medicaid. You can take your Medicaid dollars to a private religious hospital if you want. And there's no separation of church and state issue because the primary beneficiary that funding is the individual student and their families and they can pick among religious and non religious

Supreme Court Rejects Maine's Ban on Aid to Religious Schools

"The Supreme Court just issued an important decision. It's Carson versus Macon. And it's a decision in that arises out of Maine. I've talked about the case before, but the court, very good decision, 6 to three with all the 6 conservatives on the one side, the three familiar leftists, Breyer, sort of my R and Kagan in dissent, and it all revolves around an argument about separation of church and state and argument that is, I think itself based on a misnomer, but I'll get to that. Here's what's going on. The state of Maine apparently Maine does not have a fully functional public school system throughout the state. And so what Maine does is they offer tuition assistance, basically kind of a voucher or scholarships. For parents in districts that don't have their own public school. And what they tell these parents is, you can choose a school and send your child to any school of your choice. So it's basically a private school voucher program offering the same benefit that parents get who send their kids to public schools. Now, until 1981, parents in Maine could use these vouchers to send their child to a private or a private religious school, but in 1981, based upon an interpretation of separation of church and state, the main attorney general basically said, you can't use public funding to fund scholarships that go to religious institutions. And so main, going all the way back to 1981, stopped funding parents sending their kids to religious schools. And this is the case that is now gone. Well, think about it 40 years later. Before the Supreme Court. And the court basically said this is absurd.

You know, it used to be Johnny Carson, now we gotta sit down with Andy Cohen and have fake fucking cocktails and talk gay about bullshit reality shows. That was, that's what gives you clout now. That's what makes people quote your interviews. It's so ridiculously homosexual. Sit down with me, have a cocktail with an umbrella in it, and we'll dish the dirt. It's so stupid. But here we are, 2022. So she's on watch what happens live. And a fan calls in and asks Amy Schumer, did you lift the joke that one liner that you said on the Oscars from a nearly identical post on Twitter from December of 2021? I mean, this is where we're going. Like I said, Twitter has become the title tale police. It's always been the title tale police. So somebody, look, I feel for Amy short. Maybe she lifted a joke. There's been talk about her doing that for years. But every single one of us is in the crosshairs of any asshole sitting in the basement with a laptop from going into our previous social media history for the last 15, 20 years, and finding a nugget that oh wow, this is really wow, this is no good.

"carson " Discussed on The Trials of Frank Carson

"Were finding out for themselves. My mom had been in nicaragua visiting jason and she had been his house when the police went to his office to arrest him and at the same time. The police showed up to the house and held my mom and jason's three year old son at gunpoint for six hours and wouldn't tell them what was going on. And when that was over my mom called me and said the police have taken your brother and they won't tell us where he is. I remember the sound of concern and worry in her voice. But you know she wasn't screaming and crying and carrying on or anything like that and in my mind i remember thinking this is no big deal. It's just a mistake. I'll have a conversation with the prosecutor. Everything will be fine. Don't worry about it mom. I remember thinking like this is just a big misunderstanding. Jason was taken to the sun. One dose slr jail where he was detained for hours. Still with no explanation as to why then in the middle of the night jason was pulled out of the jail and thrown into a small van. There is a bunch of other guys in there and the police were screaming and yelling at everybody really violent and aggressive and they did this parade out of town with the van that we were in police cars in front and back with lights going somehow throughout all of this jason maintain composure and like his sister janice kept telling himself. This was a mistake and that it would all be sorted out. I figured it was just a case of mistaken identity that they had the wrong person. You know we've had relationships all throughout the government in the local government. All the way up. And so i had no idea what they were doing. They pulled over multiple times during that time. They were shouting and yelling. I couldn't understand exactly what they were saying. I caught a phrase of scorpions of society like they were insulting us. And every time i looked up to try to read lips and understand what. They're saying they would yell to put your heads back down and several times like i got hit in the back of the head with the butt of a gun. I got poked in the back with a sharp object. The other guys. I could hear them whispering that you know they're gonna shoot us in the field after nearly two hours of this terrifying ordeal. The van finally stopped at his destination. Rivas jail where jason would spend the next several nights and then the same thing over again the middle of the night they took us me and a bunch of other people all the way up to eligible day in managua which is the underground torture facility used by the police and so when the guys again started getting nervous and whispering. We're going to put the you know. I started getting nervous again too. I it was just so surreal. And then we got there and they process each one of us individually they take me down underneath the ground and they stripped me naked and put me in a cell and there's trash and frogs and insects moving around on the floor and garbage and piss and shit. They just push me in there. They shut the door. And there's no light there's one brick open above the door that filters a little bit of light in and then there's a hole in the ceiling. That's maybe two feet by two feet but it's got a great over the top of it and then zinc over the top of that so it allows air to go in and out but it's dark still. You can hear the prisoners next door and then in the middle of the night. You could hear girl screaming. There's a snake in their cell and there's people being tortured down the hall. You could hear people screaming and yelling and later. I heard that they hook people up to batteries and they beat people so i sat there for three days or so just waiting to figure out what's happening. During this time jason's mother returned to the us and his sisters janice and jamie both flew to nicaragua the entire time. I remember talking to jamie and planning out. Oh yeah we'll just go find the prosecutor. We'll sit down. We'll have a grownup conversation about this. Bring jason home. Everything will be fine. We got there and very quickly realized that everything was not going to be fine. We spent the first week just traveling around the country going from prison to prison to try and find him. The prisons were moving him from place to place to try to hide him from his attorneys and from his family and then one day were sitting at his house with his wife and his son and the phone rings. And it's jason. Jason used an underground cell phone to contact his wife and tell them where he was being held. But it would be days before. Jason was finally put in front of a judge and for the first time he would hear the charges against him. They put me in front of a judge and there was a bunch of other people there as well. And that's when. I finally heard the charges against me. The charges they said and from the judge were international drug trafficking but there was not one gram of drugs in the case in entire case and then they said international money laundering and all of our funds came through bank wire transfers and accountants. That kept the books and everything for us in nicaragua. So that didn't make any sense. And then they said organized crime and with ten people that i've never met before the other individuals that jason had been group with. He would later come to find out. We're politically involved. And jason had now become a political prisoner the other people in my case where political candidates against the sandinistas and a mayoral candidate in the town that we are living in how i got grouped in with these other guys. I have no idea. We weren't politically involved so i became a political prisoner. Even though i wasn't involved in politics and with limited resources we had to take a different strategy of trying to secure my freedom and so we never found out back full reason why i was put in this situation. Jason was right that he was the wrong guy but that didn't matter now after finally hearing the charges that he was being falsely accused of his cruel new reality began to sink in. Jason was transported from the el chapo torture facility to lummaux delo. The maximum security prison in nicaragua. That would become jason's home for the next twenty two months and that's just one of the cases waiting to be heard.

"Two layers of soot the torch furniture the chart patterns on the wall. All that leads back to a point where the fire started with a spark in the world of arson. It's called the point of origin. That was the name of the book. I heard about on the radio thirty years ago. Points of origin. Now i have a copy of it in my hands. It describes a lot of fires set by an arsonist named aaron styles but the first and most deadly was at a hardware store called cows. The hardware business prospered in the small community. South pasadena hardware stores such as cows did well. Madeleine paulson went to the cluster of stores. At least twice a week to shop tonight. She was babysitting with her three-year-old grandson. Matthew she took him to the baskin robbins ice cream store. And while standing in the parking lot sharing chocolate mint cone she decided to entertain matthew further by walking through madeline and matthew had less than six minutes to live as she rounded a corner. She almost ran into a man walking with his hands in his pockets. She heard his breath suck in any mumbled his apologies as he continued on and she continued to the back of the store with matthew. Aaron glanced back over his shoulder and breathe the sigh of relief as he saw the woman in the kid were walking away from the area of his device he pulled out his wallet and looked into it while he walked through an empty checkout line again. His poi- worked. No one paid any attention to him. I'm currently at always home center in the city of hacienda heights. California interviewing mr move nyala mistrial. Are you aware. I'm taking this report by the use of a recording device. Yes i am. This is an investigators. Interview with ruben allah. A manager at a real south pasadena hardware store called always home center. This interview Regards incident which took place at that all these home center in the city of south pasadena during the month of october of nineteen eighty-four. Tell me the time in the place of this incident tober tenth. It was on a wednesday. Roughly a an eight fifteen. It was getting time for us to start closing putting money away things like that. I was historic very busy that night. No it's a good thing. It wasn't a world series was on. I think i just walked up to customer service and the fire alarm went off. I kinda tried to feel or sense or smell. Smoke and i didn't try that somebody was paying with. The alarm are screaming. So i turned around and i saw some fire somebody that flames and they were shooting it from the other side of the building into this side of the building grabbed gay by extinguisher and i ran towards the fire before i could get about maybe five feet from the customer service to fire doors. Came down a pair of heavy metal doors sealed off the entire west side of the store. I knew some people are in there. As soon as the doors came down. I ran outside to try to get inside the building. I allah ran out to the parking lot where he saw another employee he was on his knees and i realized he had been burned behind. The employee was an open emergency door wreath in flames. The fire was raging there. I had to fire extinguisher with me at the time. And i tried putting the five out to get in. There's no way. I could even step three feet in front of the door. The first engine from the south pasadena fire company arrived a six man team woefully unprepared for what they were about to face the inside of the building a warehouse. The size of a football field was engulfed in fire. The all these employees helped them lay out their hosts. Everybody tried to help the fire department. Fight the fire. They fired water through the open. Emergency door but the inferno kept growing as the firemen worked. I also searched the crowd for his coworkers. I looked at everybody. And i knew who was there and who wasn't fat employees. Two of them went. And i told the fire department. I still had people and then we had to get inside the get the people out but nobody paid attention. The fire had gotten so big so quickly. It tore through the roof of the building venting into the night sky and more and more engine companies were arriving from all over the county in the parking lot. Customers were calling out for their loved ones and an older man was looking for his family. They were in the store with him shopping. He went to his car and they weren't there. He said that they should have been there and they weren't at that point. I figured there was at least four people in there in the building. And that's just the beginning.

He used <Speech_Male> it <SpeakerChange> For years <Speech_Male> it doesn't <Speech_Male> use big fancy words <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> he <Speech_Male> connects with juries <Speech_Male> because he's not trying <Speech_Male> to be more <Speech_Male> than he is <Speech_Male> and he's very <Speech_Male> simple in the way <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> he asks <Speech_Male> questions <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> he doesn't try <Speech_Male> to sound <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> like he's <Speech_Male> real educated. <Speech_Male> Because <Speech_Male> you know. I'm a big guy <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> you know.

And <Speech_Male> you know. I <Speech_Male> had five dollars. <Speech_Male> Stop and <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> had enough to <Speech_Male> get myself a <Speech_Male> big pepsi and <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> candy bar. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> My <Speech_Male> candy bar <Speech_Male> opened up my candy.

"On one hand we hear about those sorts of tactics. Frank carson according to the. Da made judges cry. Made a judge cry and yet also an episode one. He becomes very emotional talking to you. seems to get choked up asks for a hanky and it feels like there's really two competing visions of this guy and that really comes through. It seems like both can be true. I suppose one of the defense lawyers. I spoke to said that. Frank carson's greatest gift was his ability to cry on. Cue and i think he was only half joking when he said this During my conversations with him carson would frequently get choked up and he would get choked up during some asians before juries. I think because he convinced himself very often that he was on the right side of things. I mean it's the common question that defense attorneys get you know. How can you defend these people. Even if you know they're guilty and the answer that carson would give is by the time. The trial was over. I was totally convinced of his innocence. And even in cases when that wasn't necessarily so he would say look. The guy might be guilty of something but not necessarily to the extent that the da is accusing him of in other words. The da's overcharging the case and that's one of the ways defense attorneys. Explain their work because they're very often challenged by people you know. How can you defend the worst of the worst and so forth carson had a ready answer and that was it one of the things that comes up during the sabatino trial. That's worth mentioning. You mentioned that he was known as As being mean to people one of the people carson was particularly mean to is the a investigator. Kirk bunch who's involved in the sabatino case as an investigator and at one point carson asked during trial that bunch be disarmed during a witness's testimony von shrum. His seats Had apparently called a witness aligarh loud enough for people to hear He hissed it according to carson and carson accused him of Quote cracking up nutting up and he said quote the fact that he's armed. I think you know he's dangerous. And the da would denounced what he called carson's vilification of bunch and he would say he's been a peace officer for many many years. I have complete confidence. That he's not nutting up i think as mr carson so crudely put it and the dnr case called the motion to disarm him patently offensive and inactive provocation and The judge denied the motion. Now bunch is the investigator. That carson later drafts this court declaration about saying that among local attorneys familiar with his work. He's revealed as dishonest and unprofessional. And later it would be kirk bunch. Who led the investigation on the side into the case against frank carson. Now when bunches asked about this he replies that his history with carson did not leave him biased against him but when people talk about how personal carson made his attacks. This is a good example. Here's percy martinez again. He doesn't know how to Walk away from a win and be satisfied with that he will make co. he'll sit there the courtroom after the jury is left and he'll make comments in front of the judge. In front of the bela's he goes. You are nothing but a lion cop out in the open. He doesn't wait till they're alone or anything right there in you know where we stand as lawyers. He will look at them and point though. Says you're nothing but a liar has no filter that you know. He doesn't stop. After he wins he keeps going chris. One of the moments that stands out an episode..

"Tv contract using a chef from his personal restaurant to cater city council meals while he pockets the money. That sort of thing Using city employees for personal work and carson took this case he really went to war for sabatino he really went to war against the judge who ultimately held them in contempt. Five times was an eight week. Trial carson got five contempt of court citations from visiting judge and Carson didn't seem to care at all. I talk to him later about it. And he was unrepentant called the judge jack ass and did not seem at all chasing by it. He accused the judge during the trial of. Fostering a cult like atmosphere Because the judge would bring the jurors donuts and the jurors brought him a cake with a golf ball on it this is the judge and carson said look the jurors are going to take their cue from you if you dislike me they are going to dislike me and the judge said he wouldn't let carson turn his courtroom into a circus and a suspicion was that carson was picking fights with the judge so that if his client the mayor lost he had appealable issues and the judge said. The court is not going to bite on that. The jury deadlocked The da the new da bergische flagger declined to refile so carson counted as a win. I didn't believe in hopeless trials stuff would happen. And i would question things and we had luck but i got to where i wasn't afraid to lose and i think that a lot of people are afraid to lose. A lot of people are afraid to Look bad in front of a jury. And i was not afraid of that and i never ever tried to let being a lawyer to my head. But don't don't get to believe in your own bullshit because you're not a fucking bid smarter just because you're a lawyer. You're no better. you're no smarter. You're no nothing better okay. As far as i'm concerned there's a really great sort of dual perspective on frank carson in episode one..

We had no allusions by them. She had made it clear that to you know her heart and soul was with the prosecution as i mentioned earlier in this podcast i gave judge zuniga a chance to comment and she declined around. The time. carson's murder trial finally started in early. Two thousand eighteen. Carson's health deteriorated. Visually would happen. Was that the blood pressure over. Works everything in the my i experienced kidney failure. Carson got a temporary port in his chest and a location. That made infections potentially lethal. This is a line that goes directly to lenhart judge. Zuniga presided over the trial as she had the pre prelims. She was small boned woman with a fondness for big gold earrings. Her glasses perched on the tip of her nose behind her sat little statuettes of wolves that she had brought in one of the wolves gazing downward as if to study some law papers and the other howled silently at the ceiling. The trials pace was excruciating and zuniga's seemed more hostage to the proceedings than a conductor. Witness testimony was interrupted by frequent objections from the lawyers. Prompting the judge to summon them to her bench for private discussions called sidebars..

"On the weekend before the marathon courtroom battle was to start. A feeler was extended to the alleged godfather at the heart of the murder plot. It came to frank carson. Through his attorney percy martinez who had been picking up evidence from the da's office when he says the prosecutor asked if carson might be willing to cop a plea he says carson was given a big incentive that charges would be dropped against his wife georgia and stepdaughter christina. I saw you crazy dago. We could come up with something. Untold brag that they made you an offer. They want you to cooperate against the outlaws. Chris georgia will get out immediately. When carson's response was profane snarl no chance this was characteristic of carson irascible and obstinately determined to fight to the end i asked the da about the overtures described by the defense and the prosecutor said no formal plea offers were made as the preliminary hearing got underway in modesto in october two thousand fifteen frank carson sat with his co-defendants his wife and step-daughter bobby atwal and his brother d who ran the pop and cork liquor store and former. Chp officer walter. Wells to other accused highway. Patrolman would have their cases heard later. Judge barbara zuniga would have to decide whether there was enough evidence to hold the defendants retrial. The government just had to convince her that there was probable cause that the defendants had conspired under carson's influence to murder or cover up the death of a scrap metal thief the state's bid define cooperators among the accused was met with stiff refusals rather than get on board the witnessed bus in exchange for leniency carson. And his family the atwal brothers and wells chose to fight as a unified front but this choice came at an enormous cost as the pre limb ground on long beyond the four weeks. Prosecutors had estimated it would take and it would be carson himself the combative singularly defiant man at the heart of it who would rethink the wisdom of continuing the fight.

The supposed spider at the heart of a great web of murder and evidence concealments also booked carson's wife and step-daughter the two brothers who ran the pop and cork liquor store and to everyone's astonishment three men who had worked for the california highway patrol all had played some role.

How did a defense attorney known for his distrust of local cops find himself accused of conspiring with three highway patrolman. He didn't even know. What was the nexus between frank. Carson and the patrolman. The government's theory takes some explaining but to start. Let's go back to the pop and cork liquor store in turlock. It was popular with local cops among them. Highway patrol officers who monitored long stretches of highway ninety nine. They dropped by during patrols to grab water or to use the bathroom. Bobby atwal in his brother d who ran the place through barbecues for the cops in the back lot and kept a small private party room a police presence had the clear advantage of deterring shoplifters and robbers and for the cops. It was a more comfortable place to unwind the local bars. They didn't have to worry about running into people. They'd arrested or ticketed. The da's office was convinced. The atwal brothers and their handyman robert. Woody had served as frank carson's muscle in eliminating the scrap metal thief and so d. a. Investigators were alarmed when they began eavesdropping on the brothers phone calls and found them engaged in friendly. Free wheeling conversations with the highway. Patrolman at the da's office suspicions were roiling. What did it mean. Where the patrolman in on it as well where they doing carson's bidding to. How did it add up on july ninth.

You can buy one with the mayor with the glasgow to shoot me. You know how. Good yeah. I try to rob you clinton ours tone. Suggested that he did not his friends worries about being followed that seriously thinking about to the. Da's office this was not an innocent conversation between friends and quinton ours. Laughter is no evidence that he regarded as a joke instead.
