Fresh update on "catherine" discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"What this he's accusing me of is a Russian plant. CBS News approached the lawyer for the computer repair shop owner to cut through the noise. We've always had one clean copy. And obtained a copy of what he says, they provided the FBI under subpoena. Then we went to Minneapolis for an independent analysis. Were you paid by CBS or anyone else to analyze the data? No. No. I wouldn't want anyone to think that someone bought our opinion. Around the corner, it'll lead you to what we call our imaging room. Lanterman and his son Sean both digital forensic experts recovered images of credit cards, a driver's license, social security number. Just the sheer volume of what we're dealing with. It would be difficult if not impossible to fabricate. And explained how files built up over years. It accumulated over time, which is consistent with normal, everyday use of computer. There's some reporting about folders being added. We have read these articles. We don't see that. So I believe that that is because we have a more pristine copy. Hey guys, it's Sebastian here. Hey Jeff, what was that? Was that yesterday on CBS that long report we just played a clip of? Yeah, it took him a little while to put it together. Yeah, weird. I've got to this thing, it's Wikipedia, I hate it, but at least it's the repository of all suppository of conventional wisdom. The Hunter Biden laptop story that you have a whole entry in Wikipedia. And it starts with a timeline. The timeline for the original story, the breaking of the Hunter Biden laptop story. If you'd like to write it down all of you out there all 3 million of you was October 14th. Not this year. Not last year. October 14th, 20 20. Yeah, right before the elections. Two stinking years ago. Well done, CBS, you're only two years late. And Catherine heritage are you ashamed of yourself, Katherine? I knew you. You're a colleague of mine at Fox when I was a contributor on Fox. Very messy lady, your office was like a war zone. But a very good and solid reporter, a straight shooter. You worked your tail off at Fox. I would say you're probably back then, one of the most respected serious investigative journalists at Fox News, despite your untidy office, it was literally piles of papers on her chair on her table. And then you leave Fox, you put your name in your face to this oh, we verified the laptops. We have gone to independence specialists. They didn't take a dime from us. Two years later, two years, I texted you to ask you today. Well, first doing for me this story was broken by the New York Post to years ago and not much need of verification required. Why? Because the computer repair shop owner showed the world the forms signed by Hunter Biden for the repair of the two water damaged laptops. He wished to have repaired, signed by him that stated if he doesn't come back to get them within what was it 60 days. They become the property of the store. And then when they be quarantined, he finds what's on them, the videos of the prostitutes, the crack the crack pipes, the connections to Chinese businessmen, Boris, Ukraine. He tells the FBI in Delaware and they sit on it. And as soon as it becomes a story in the New York Post to stinking years ago, what happens? Oh, here Catherine, here's an interesting, very vacation of the authenticity, Hunter Biden's lawyers. Demand that the computer repair shop owner give the hard drives back. That's weird. Because if it's Russian misinformation like those 51 former CIA and DIA officials stated before the election, on what basis do Hunter Biden's lawyers want them back, if they're not hunters laptops, what right does hunter have to them? Of course there is. Hey Jeff, was that mean of me to tax Catherine Harris today to say, aren't you ashamed of yourself? No, maybe if she waited a week, but not two years. I mean, I think it's the right thing to do because she thinks she's being a journalist yesterday. I know that is ridiculous. To act like she's breaking news. Look, we're going to have a very serious packet. We're going to go to a very swanky office. We're going to sit down with some experts. Look, this table, it's made of glass and chrome. Have you seen this office? It's really expensive. And these experts, he's got a silk tie on. He must be really good, and I'm a reporter. Look at me. You're a clown. You're joke heritage. You know, you owe Americans after two years of sitting on this story. You owe us all an apology because you are no longer you have just forsaken everything you swore to uphold. A journalist, it should be about the truth. You could have an political opinion. But you should be about the truth. You just sat on a story for two stinking years. And CBS, we know that hacks. We know that propagandists, but you put your face to this lie to this wow, we broke the story yesterday. You discredited yourself, Catherine, heritage, you have for sworn everything that should be sacred to you in your profession. You owe me and all Americans and apology for being a rank propagandist. My only question to you, if you want to claw back a modicum, a scintilla of decency, how about you leave CBS? How about you resign today? Show us that you're not a coward and a propagandist and a flunky and a hack. And tell us just one thing, one thing why did your editors? Because you didn't make this decision, you're just a reporter. Why did your editors tell you to drop this package now? One week after an election why? Why two weeks? Why now? Why now? And two years before the next one, is this to wipe it clean in time? You'd better tell us if you want anyone to respect you. I said I wouldn't do another angry monologue. I can't help it. It's the event. I'm Sebastian Cole, this is America first.

Fresh update on "catherine" discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Roger Federer did not say Roger Federer Frederick grew fangs. Yeah, by winning Wimbledon. You sure they weren't there, but just other things were disguising them. I think that's the case with most people who have fangs. I don't think you know that you have them from birth. I don't think you know that. Well I think some people they're always not everybody. Some people, yes. But I don't think Federer did. I mean, look at all terrible losses, he had early on with this man of this incredible talent. And he was just underwhelming, underperforming, under delivering. For years. But due to lack of fang underperforming due to inadequate fact. I mean, everything he was immature, all the rest of it. No, no, no, no, no. These are surely in judging Mercedes, 20 years old, part of his failure to deliver delivered to this point is that he just hasn't been able to put it all together yet. Yeah. I hope that's what it is. I just worry about how bothered he is by defeats. Well, that's a good question. And I don't know him enough to know. So that is a question. The jury is still out. I'm saying, I have questions. Yeah. The questions that are preventing me from getting invested in the way that I have with other young players. Too many times. We're just living out my trauma here on the pod. But yeah, I mean, God, I mean, he's a gorgeous tennis player. Desperate for him to show some fangs. Desperate. Federer beating United States in Davis Cup at home. Before he won Wimbledon is the moment that I thought this guy can handle all of it. Okay. Well, I am totally here for Lorenzo mazzetti having an equivalent moment. Imagine if tomorrow he goes and beats Felix Hogan and Italy reached the final and then he goes and beats Alex demeanor and wins the Davis Cup. Okay. We shall revisit this on Sunday, David, potentially. Wow, I feel like they've just opened a whole kind of worms that my mind is spinning right now, David. Good. Fascinating. Okay, so you are going for having said all of that and having made a date to talk about Lorenzo musetti on Sunday, you're going for Canada. Yeah, yeah. I think I am too. Because that's just shorter than logical. Yeah. Yeah. It is, isn't it? But anything can happen. Folks, it's been a good week of tennis. Hasn't it so far? It has a couple more days to go. You know, but I do think do you think this has been a good week for Davis Cup? Tentatively. 100%. Yeah. I've enjoyed it. Okay. So we shall reconvene tomorrow, David, after the second semifinal, has been played and we'll be able to look back on that, look ahead to the final anticipate more high emotions from Alex demeanor and late in the year, I'm kind of voiding looking forward to that a little bit. We hope to have Matt back over the weekend but no promises we are prioritizing his health quite frankly, we'd love to hear from him as much as you would, but he's got to get well soon. Folks and we wish him very well, don't we, David. Absolutely. And thank goodness for that ocean view that he's got. Yeah. I don't feel quite so bitter about the ocean view now that he's ill. He's welcome to it now. Yeah, it's no fun being in a lovely place when you feel. No, I know. No, we're thinking of you, Matt. David, we have mascots. Don't we? We have our mascots. We do. We have Darwin, Catherine has cars. Carter. Matt has the departed Gerald. We've got a pet mascot for this episode. None of our personal mascots have skin in the game anymore this week and has been covered. But yes, we have a mascot for the episode David. We do. We can bring me details. We have lunar Catherine for a second time. Luna was a mascot last year brought into our world by the lovely Richard nuttall who is somebody that we very much like. And Luna is an 11 year old black Labrador. And Richard loves the pod and so does Luna because it means Luna gets to go on long walks while Richard listens to the pod. And labradors do like a long walk. Yeah, and lunar is sitting next to a rather grubby looking blue tennis ball in the picture that we're seeing, but I've only got eyes for Luna. So it's absolutely fine. Well, they finally labradors, and I think I do. They love a grubby tennis ball. Oh yeah. Yeah. And yeah, we've got our executive producers. We've got car wine Gartner and Chris Albert Lee. We have Billie Jean. He's asleep on my shoulder right now. She sponsored by Billie Jean King and Alana gloss. Awesome. And David, we've got shout outs. We have. I've just about keeping the show on the road. We have Cincinnati. I found out where he keeps the show. Folks, tune in tomorrow to find out if tomorrow's the day. I haven't read them out yet, so let's see, see if we can get through first. We've got Fiona McGregor in Edinburgh, who says the tennis podcast was the first podcast I listened to ever and I love it. Oh, I know, gee. Yeah, that's in that. I feel like the name McGregor without wanting to say it in a Scottish accent McGregor. That's good. Lovely. Thanks Fiona. We've got Lindsey hill, spelled in the same way as Lindsey Davenport. Oh, with an a yeah. Very good. Lindsay is from Atlanta, Georgia and says, if Matt did a backhand list at my local tennis club, I think I would be on it, especially if, as discussed in the recent episode that one is more likely to be on the backhand list.

The Latest News About Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips
"I want to give you an update on Catherine engelbrecht and Greg Phillips of true the vote. It appears that they are still day two in jail. And they have been thrown in jail by a Texas judge because they have they are unwilling to provide the name of a confidential informant that put them on the trail of the election software company conic. a Chinese American named Eugene U now, if you go on truth social and I hope all of you have accounts at truth social, it's important for us to help build up alternative platforms. I realized that Twitter is the Berlin Wall is coming down on Twitter, which is a very good thing, but we want insurance. We want to make sure we have safe platforms where we can speak our mind and now on truth social Catherine and Greg have accounts through the vote has an account there. Follow them. And Catherine has a recorded message, which I listen to this morning. It's a very poignant and strong message. Basically saying, number one, we're okay. Number two, don't take your eye off the ball, don't worry about us right now. We're gonna be fine. Really focus on getting the word out before the election. So kind of a last minute appeal to be involved and to spread the message and to vote. Don't miss out on this critical opportunity to change the direction of the country. And then through the vote also sent out a kind of an email to its friends and supporters of obviously were included Debbie's on the list. And I want to go through that briefly. It says number one that true the vote became aware that 2 million election workers had their private data and by piper data, we mean poll worker names, addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, bank account numbers, all of this is in a database. And that Eugene knew and conic were allegedly storing this on Chinese servers. For 15 months, Catherine and Gregg worked with FBI field agents in Texas on this kind of operation. And then one of their FBI informants told them listen the FBI office in Washington D.C. AKA the whole corrupt shebang in Washington knows about this now and they're turning the operation against you.
What Can Be Done About DOJ Corruption? President Trump Weighs In
"The big question. What can be done with the corruption at the DoJ, the FBI after multiple impeachments against yourself that failed the Mueller probe? I designed this a few weeks ago. My producers said it was excessive. It is now the hottest selling item on our website. It is a mug that says, Biden's Gestapo, the FBI. Can it be fixed with a new director, or do we have to scrap it? Well, we have no choice. If we don't fix it, you're not going to have a country left anymore because our country, we're not a confident country anymore. And we always had a law enforcement system that we thought, and you know, if you go back to the local level and the police and the job they've done, even there, they've taken their authority away. So the opposite. They've taken their authority away. And we have crime in these Democrat run cities. We have crime, like nobody's ever seen before. People being pushed randomly from the subway trains that are coming down at rather rapid speeds. Look, what's going on is just not even thinkable. I just saw that and I'm not sure this is possible, but I'm just seeing that truth to vote two of the people were arrested. Catherine, engelbrecht, who, as you know, is a fantastic woman. Have you seen that? This morning, I mentioned it 7 a.m. thanks to a corrupt judge in Houston, both Catherine engelbrecht, the heroine and the hero of 2000 mules her partner Greg Phillips were arrested for refusing to give up their source for the Chinese company that was taking election data to Mainland China. Is this fixable? Because I know you have great respect for both Catherine and Greg. They were central to the national film. This shouldn't be happening in America. And the job they did was on tape. It's not like, oh gee, they made something up. I mean, they have cameras. Government cameras taking nobody bothered to go look at the tapes, right? But they have government cameras that have it absolutely on tape. The job they've done. And then you say, well, how come they don't do this with the leaker? The leaker of the Supreme Court, because if you went and got to that reporter, that's a terrible thing that happened. It puts our justices at tremendous risk and that continues. So they can't find the liquor. It's very easy to find the leaker. If you did the same thing to the reporter, as you did to Catherine engelbrecht, who's a great woman, you say, we want to know who the leaker was because the leaker gave the story to this reporter.
Democrats Are Out of Touch With Reality
"Now Adam, there's nobody like a candidate to ask what's really going on because you've got to talk to everyone. So I want to really ask you about parents and kids in Nevada. And this is not just Hispanic for any parent. When I heard tutor, what I heard Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan lie to the people in Michigan two nights ago and say, we only shut the schools down for three months. And everyone knew that was a lot. And when I heard Kathy hochul, democratic governor of New York State, I don't know why you leave all their upset about crime. I thought these people are absolutely disconnected from the reality of the ordinary American family. Kids lost two and a half years of learning and crime scares the hell out of everyone. Is that what you're hearing? Everything you hear nationally is worse here. We're 49th in education. Our crime has soared. The border, we have fentanyl and human trafficking spikes to likes of which we've never seen before. We had all time closures and small businesses, particularly in the Hispanic community, all time closures, and these businesses are still barely hanging on a couple of years after these shutdowns. And so you're absolutely right. These Democrats are shameless, Catherine Cortez masto is running a revisionist Senate campaign with millions and millions of dollars. If they didn't have all this money in the media, we'd be up ten in this race and this thing would be over. But we all know the media throws in and all popular culture and they just pretend like this is not Democrat policy. But I'll tell you, that's what I do. Every single time I'm speaking to a group. And believe me, we've had, we've been in front of more nevadans than any candidate of either party in this state. By far.
Dinesh D'Souza: Responding to '2,000 Mules' Critics
"How do you refute the critics I know you and I have discussed this before but given that they really panicked about this and I haven't seen a full throated a 30 front war against a movie about election fraud or a book or a research project like they came out against 2000 meals They've resorted to a lot of personal attacks against you against Greg against Catherine I think it's because they're frightened about what you guys uncovered but one of the things I get often about 2000 mules from lefties is you know they cell phone data is just not accurate You can't tell that a mule was going to a ballot box in contrast to just driving by one which let me just say before you answered dinesh I find interesting because the left wanted to squelch the same cell phone data because they were afraid that people on the right would monitor who went to abortion clinics which I find weird If the date is not accurate it's not accurate So how do you respond to that criticism Well it was particularly astounding coming from Bill Barr I mean it's one thing if you get it from the fact checker at AP who's 20 something graduate from Portland state doesn't know anything about geo tracking doesn't know anything about election law But here you have Bill Barr He's been head of the DoJ And as you know the DoJ uses cell phone geo tracking every single day I mean they found Mike lindell in the drive in and hardee How do they know he was there They're tracking his phone So they were able to pinpoint his location FBI come up take his phone but he was located through cell phone geo tracking It's used by this it's used by multiple agencies of the government So it is again applying this general principle It is regarded as accurate in every single context except one and that is ballot trafficking
American consumer confidence takes a hit in October

An Update on the Arrest of Konnech CEO Eugene Yu
"As you probably know, the CEO of the election software company conic. This is a guy named Eugene U he is a Chinese American, born in China, educated in China. Has been doing business in China. He's been arrested in Los Angeles by the district attorney George gascon, kind of ironic progressive, a left wing DA who somehow has some people on his team that are going after election fraud. And this is what this is what we're talking about. Make no mistake. Interestingly, the left, very worried about all this. And so a lot of the people who were going after 2000 mules, I'm thinking of people like Tom drives back at NBR or Philip bump at The Washington Post, the so called fact checker Ali swenson at political these people have been very nervously trying to figure out how to handle this conic situation. Why? Because who blew the whistle on conic. True the vote. Catherine engelbrecht, Greg Phillips. In fact, Greg Phillips went before the grand jury in Los Angeles and laid out some of the facts about conic. Now, the LA district attorney's office has done its own investigation, and they filed their complaint, and that's what I want to talk about because what they say very clearly is that, well, two things. First of all, not only is Eugene you accused of violating his contract with Los Angeles and committing the crime of allowing access to U.S. election data, specifically Paul worker data, but we don't know the full extent of it, to China, to Chinese companies, to Chinese officials, and undoubtedly to the Chinese Communist Party, which, after all, oversees everything that happens in China and has full access to anything that is done on a Chinese server.

Journalist Tom Dreisbach Is Obsessed With Debunking '2000 Mules'
"One of NPR's attack dogs is this guy, Tom driesbach. I didn't actually know about him. Until he did a big attack on 2000 mules. And I'll come back to the attack on the movie that he published. Because I think we get a very good idea of his sort of MO, his modus operandi. His way of operating. In any case, he sent a note to Catherine engelbrecht, and he says, I'm writing because we've obtained a copy of dinesh d'souza's 2000 mules book, which was recently recalled, we are planning a news story based on its contents and claims. So this is the hit job that they want to do. But let's pause for a moment and think of how strange this is because my 2000 meals book was supposed to have come out at the end of September. Regnery issued a statement and I'm paraphrasing because I'm doing it from memory, but the SNG said due to a publishing error, which is to say an error on their part, not mine. They were recalling the book, which is to say they were delaying its publication to October, there were some early copies that were printed. They were recalled those copies, some of them had gone out. They got them back. And they are reprinting the first edition for release in October. Now, this doesn't happen very often, but it does happen in the publishing world. Why? Because publishing is a complicated kind of a sausage making process. And sometimes things go a little awry. You know, I've written almost 20 books, so I'm very familiar with the process I'm familiar with other books that have been recalled from time to time. So this is something regrettable, but it does happen. And so I was I told regret fine. Whether the book comes out in September or whether it comes out in October, it's not a radical difference, the book is powerful. It is powerful. But what's happened is instead of waiting for the actual book to come out. This dry spot guy got a hold of one of the stray copies of the recalled book, and so he's planning the hit job, not on 2000 meals the book, but odd, the early copy that has now been recalled.
Democrats Have Avoided Talking About Race Recently
"You go to Mark Kelly's website almost nowhere on Mark Kelly's website. Does he talk about. Race, does he talk about equity? No, you want to Mark Kelly's website. It's the mission comes first. This campaign is about the people of Arizona, not corporate PACS, and the mess they've created in Washington. Okay, Mark Kelly. Nowhere to talk about racial reconciliation or any of this nonsense. It's not a winner, especially in the state of Arizona. You go to these other websites as well. You go to Cortes mastro's website. And by the way, she's in a lot of trouble. Cortes Masco. She's in a very, very she's in a very tough race against a good candidate, Adam laxalt. Adam can win that race. She's not talking about race anywhere. I mean, the race issue. You go to her website, she makes herself seem like a total moderate. She's a very unimpressive candidate. Catherine Cortez masto is a very beatable candidate. Adam laxalt can win this race. Fighting for nevadans, her website meet Katherine. It's very normal kind of modern day things. Tackling issues. Moderate things I should say. Nothing at all where it would make it seem as if she's kind of the participant or a lieutenant in a racial arsonist agenda. 2020 was totally different. You go to John fetterman, by the way, John fetterman is one of the craziest people to run for office in the last decade. This guy's a psychopath. He's a he's a weird, weird person. He has convicted murderers on his payroll. He's a legit radical. He is a legitimate Marxist. He's a supersized Marxist is what he is. So go to his website. This is a different kind of Democrat. It doesn't look like a typical politician. Again, I'm so, I'm so exhausted with this kind of Hollywood play acting thing. Where John
Adam Laxalt: Catherine Cortez Masto Voted for 87,000 More IRS Agents
"And she is a foot soldier for Biden Did she not vote for 87,000 new IRS agents Exactly You know if she was this great moderate then maybe you could count on her breaking with Joe Matt Manchin once in a while but no one has ever heard of her name which means that's because she never breaks on the big bills and she voted for the quote unquote inflation reduction bill I don't think that was even a debate mark that didn't even take two seconds She's in the bank Biden can always count on her Chuck Schumer Schumer can always count on her And this is the end of the day while we're going to win this race because people are fed up with the Democrats being in charge of this country
Adam Laxalt: Catherine Cortez Masto Originally Supported BLM
"Have you noticed that I'm waxhaw That these Democrats and they're all hard left they're not moderate They're all hard left They lie and lie and lie over again to try and conceal what they really stand for and voted for She is a 100% vote for Schumer of New York a 100% vote for Pelosi of San Francisco 100% vote for one of the worst presidents in American history And then she runs around your state acting like she knows nothing about it Well this is the playbook and thanks to the media They largely get away with it No one holds them accountable But the bottom line is she said what she said She said that she supported BLM She said that cops were systemically racist and they needed to be reformed and now she's running these commercials handing out handing out money to law enforcement And so the bottom line is all the major law enforcement state they had endorsed her in 16 They flipped to me And they're supporting me in this race The border patrol has endorsed my race for the first time in history that we've even been in a situation where you needed a border patrol involved in a U.S. Senate race in Nevada But they understand that I'm going to be strong on the border I visited the border Mark three weeks ago I beat the sitting in common senator to the border and we know she's not going to go to the border anytime soon But these are the big issues we face and look at the end of that I think our voters know they've got a former navy in Iraq veteran They've got a former fighting conservative attorney general that's ready to go to work to try to save our country

"And undergraduate students. And we need to celebrate that versus making a detriment for them. And so by endowing more positions, we can create an ability to potentially give two to three year contracts that include medical insurance. And then we're allowing a pool of really amazing young artists to be able to have their first opportunities to teach at a university like UCLA and then hopefully be able to gain employment in other places. So it's a two tiered thing and really to students leaving in debt, but that also that we are kinder and more responsible to those who give us so much within the department. How do you manage your sort of pedological life with your art and life as an artist? There are those clauses again, right? I mean, at this point, it all seems like it just flows together, you know? It really does. And I think I'm pretty good at time management. I have a really good assistant who really helps me extraordinarily. And at this point, the experience of making the work and the knowledge and relationship to what I want to make and the experiences that I try to put forth to figure out what I'm making all feel incredibly fluid. They're not fraught. You know, I think that I would say that in the 90s and in my 30s I had more anxiety and at this point, I'm beyond mid career artists because I'm 60. And I've been making work in the art world for now 30 years. And I think that I'm really just excited about the continuation of being able to talk about what I see around me during my lifetime and live out my life with the love of my beautiful family and friends and I'm really hokey and gonna cry about that right now because it is I've worked really, really hard. And that is the hard thing about having multiple closets so to speak and sometimes there were too many clothes. And I feel that I'm I've been able to pivot and move and be aware and continue to feel that I'm tied into the things that are interesting for me and I have the incredible support of being able to have the longevity that I've had in relationship to being an artist. And I wish that everybody had those kinds of experiences. Katherine, I have one last question for you. It's not particularly profound, but it is one that I'm highly curious. I don't like curiosity. Is it true that you've been watching the soap opera Days of Our Lives since you were 7 years old? You got to have right when I was taking a sip of water. Sorry. Yeah. Yeah, I could tell you everything that's happening right now up to date with Days of Our Lives, but oh my goodness. I have. I literally have. I can tell you about all the characters, all the history of the characters. I'm a walking encyclopedia of Days of Our Lives. And why? What is it about Days of Our Lives? You know, it's something that I watch with my mom. I guess that they, I don't know, they became another place of a dysfunctional family for me. Like all the drama, like if that drama was the drama then do I have to think about my own drama, so to speak, and then you just get tied up and in a really dumb hokey way. And it's something that I could talk about with my mom. Like yesterday I called her, but this literally a conversation I had yesterday. Okay, mom. What? It's like, okay, if Lonnie is really the daughter of this character. And Abe is the father. Does that mean that they had sex when she was going out with when Abe was going out with his sister? Like, that's like literally a conversation I will have with my mom and she's like, I don't know. We'll just have to see. It'll have to unravel. So it gives a little touching point for my mom and I in this shared history of these characters and the life of Salem. And then I've run into the characters in LA and I even had one of the characters come to my studio for a studio visit. And I've always wanted to make still lives. So I'm putting it out there on design matters, maybe you can help me make it happen. Oh, I would love that. I want to make still lives of the set of Days of Our Lives. Okay. This is going to happen. You heard it here first listeners. Do you want to put the one with the hourglass? Hourglass? Yes, yes. Yeah. It's so are the Days of Our Lives. Catherine Opie, thank you. Thank you, thank you for creating such important extraordinary work and thank you so much for joining me today on design matters. It has just been an honor and absolute honor. Well, thank you. It was a fantastic interview and really appreciate it. Thank you. You can see a survey of Catherine Opie's work in her extraordinary new monograph simply titled Catherine Opie, published by phaeton.

"Not true. You're talking about Secretary of State. Let's be specific. In other words, what's what secretaries of state specifically declined to do this? And why would they do? Why would they decline to do what we would think of as their job? Well, you know, in the heat of that moment and those moments in the case of 2020 where there was so much push and pull about whether or not states were going to certify and the electors that were going to either be a part of the certification or not. I mean, it got very, very convoluted. But I think that as we so often see with our with our elected rather than do the wise thing, they did the easy thing. And just said, well, you know, I mean, it's good enough. And they kind of, you know, went along. And you can't unring that bell. Once it's certified, it's sealed. I mean, it's done. In a way that is, I mean, but look all of this. We are on such uncharted water for all of this. As we continue to reveal more and more about what really happened, but continue to question what can be done to correct the past. I mean, there's so many things that have never really been constitutionally challenged, but certification is one that there's just no question. There's so many problems in the process. That alone should have stopped everything in its tracks. Well, look, I mean, it just seems to me, we've got to cut to the chase and say, we have elected people who are corrupt. They do not have the fire of the founders about freedom about the voice of the people. They don't seem to care about these things. They seem to be corrupt. And if we don't throw them out of office and elect people who care about these things, we're never going to have our country back. I mean, that's number one. I want to ask you, do you think Mike Pence could have sent things back to the states? It seems clear to me that he could have, but some people say no. Well, you know, I mean, I'm no constitutional scholar, but based upon what I have read and have been a part of in debates. I think that yes, he ultimately was where the buck stopped to make the final call and he rolled over. I have to say it's horrifying to me that people that I think of as good people like Mike Pence would in this moment where the light of history shining on them, expecting them to do something heroic and difficult. They don't do it. It is deeply grievous to me. It is deeply good. We need people who bravely stand up and do the right thing, even when it's very tough. We'll be right back final segment with Catherine engelbrecht. Well, I'm thinking my time just moving along you'll forget about it. Somewhere they are both in the Catherine engelbrecht, who's with true the vote, one of the stars of the film 2000 mules. If you haven't seen it, I'm pretty sure you're a communist. Catherine, we were just talking about Mike Pence's role, we were talking about the roles of the secretaries of state around the country. It seems like everybody kind of passes the book. In other words, doing the really difficult thing, which I would argue, takes faith and virtue. The really tough thing in these cases, the right thing, it is tough, it takes faith. It takes virtue to say, I don't care what the cost is. I'm going to do the right thing. I'm going to trust God to be with me. That didn't happen over and over and over and over and over. It's just astonishing. Now I expect democratic operatives who are not only corrupt, they're deeply criminal. I expect them to do this kind of stuff. But then we have to stand against it. If that's going to happen. So the question is, are you, I'm guessing you're not able to talk about who you think these NGOs are is there a legal reason for that? Yeah, the reason is we don't want to get ahead of the investigations. I mean, what you're seeing right now in Arizona is going as well as it is going because they've had the benefit of developing that trail themselves and then they can come in and sweep in a way that gives them the benefit of timing. So that's why we're being very, very cautious and not wanting to get ahead of anything. We want to take down the whole House of Cards. And to do that requires a lot of strategy. Well, so you talk about taking down the house of cars. You can exposing the corruption and showing exactly who wrote checks to mules to do these criminal activities. We're talking about that. Absolutely. And the reason I characterize it as a House of Cards is, I mean, it is, this is a, this is a syndicate that is nationwide and even international. These organizations are a web across our country that have, in part, an aspect of them that requires an element of election control. And so and they're all part of a piece. This is RICO stuff. This is, this is huge. The movie was clearly enormously helpful in opening people's eyes, but I assure you there is a lot more work to be done and this is just the tip of the iceberg. So when you say this is RICO stuff, it's kind of like people saying like, you know, when I was a kid, you believe the mafia exists because you could just say, come on, don't be silly. And the fact is that it was a vast network of criminal activity so vast that you could not draw a bead on it. You couldn't get up high enough to know who's controlling what. And that was of course their design. That is what we're dealing with here. And you're talking about wanting to take down something that they will do anything not to be taken down. They are absolutely desperate. But I just get the impression that you are hopeful. I'm very hopeful. And I have I have absolute faith that this is the path that we're supposed to be on, that all of this has come together for such a time. And that, you know, light will continue to be given for the step that we're on. And I can't think of I can't think of a better use of my time on this planet than to continue to press on in faith and see justice restored because I am eternally optimistic that that's ultimately what's going to happen. Well, I feel like we're. I mean, I know you well enough to know that you're not naively optimistic the way I sometimes can be because you're in the weeds on this. But everybody needs to do their part. Ladies and gentlemen, I am telling you, you need to see the film, you need to tell people to see the film, buy them tickets to see the film, tell them to go to true the vote dot org, get involved. We all need to do our part by God's grace..

"Like a mister milk toast. Folks, welcome back. I am talking to one of the principal figures in the film, 2000 mules, Catherine, engelbrecht, along with her colleague Greg Phillips, they made it possible for us to see what is going on in America, dinesh d'souza masterfully pulls it together in the film 2000 mules. I am so grateful to God, Catherine, for you and for Greg and for dinesh and Debbie. I mean, the idea that this film is coming out because I think to myself, okay, let's say dinesh said, I'm not gonna do it. What else do we have? I think that, you know, Mike lindell has been a hero, but that kind of information is more difficult for people to process. Their eyes glaze over, they don't know what to do about it. Your stuff is just much more concrete. Right. And look, this is a thousand front war. There are issues all across this board when it comes to process and subversion of that process. But yes, I think that what we intentionally chose to do is follow a path that would necessarily be trackable, be provable. And we felt like it was a, it was a clearer path to articulate to the broader American public that will understand. This is how it's being stolen. So, but it's only one of the ways. I mean, our process is so deeply broken. I can't stress it enough. There's so much work that needs to be done. But isn't it, doesn't it say everything that only the kind of voter fraud, this ballot stuffing that you guys investigate? Only that is sufficient to flip the election to Donald Trump. If that had been dealt with, that to me is amazing because I realize there were other kinds of significant fraud. The machines were hugely significant unless that's I'm missing something. I don't know. This is just far worse than anybody would dream of. I still can't believe, I mean, in other words, I would have guessed that what you investigated would have shown how it was possible that the election might have been flipped. But it didn't show that. It showed that the election was flipped. Just from your kind of information. Yeah, I mean, the election should have never been certified. That's sort of the opening salvo to where we find ourselves today. It should have not been certified. And the reasons it should have not been certified was that the chain of custody that was required across many fronts in the election process state by state by state was not in place. That was provable then it was provable now the data was not in place. The documentation was not in place. Now you see, you know, with the project that we've taken on, the video that was required if you were going to use the drop boxes, that was not done. I mean, just you could just go down a list of boxes that were not checked that are required in order to certify. And so with that sort of having been tossed out the window, then you just start chasing the ghost in the machine, you know? I mean, you can't get to a bottom line because there are so many missing pieces. And that's why I say this process is so broken that we have to address it. It is granular. I mean, it's going to take time. Well, let me ask you about that. And you say they shouldn't have been certified. This has been a huge civic lesson for many Americans because most of us didn't pay attention because it always we assumed it was going fine. And then we find out it's not going fine, and then we start to wander, we start to ask what it is, that's not going the way we thought it was going. And one of these things, as you said, is chain of custody. These kinds of things. So when you say they shouldn't have been certified, who is supposed to step in at that point and say, we can not certify this. How does that happen and why didn't that happen? States state to state it's handled a little differently. In certain states, but by and large, it's the Secretary of State or whoever is the topmost delegate of elections in that state. And they sign off to say that to the best of their knowledge and understanding the process as it is intended to run. That meets all of these standards for a certifiable, secure process. And that's just inherently.

"Tell me Eric, why is relief factor so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal. And I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. Ladies and gentlemen, as promised, I have as my guest for this hour, none other than Catherine, engelbrecht, Catherine welcome. Thanks so much for having me. Okay, in case anybody is not paying any attention or maybe they're communists. They don't know that there's a movie out called 2000 mules. I talk about it all the time because I steal the show with my green pants. That's what I keep saying, but that's not really true. It's a very serious movie. You and your colleague, his name is, I'm slipping. Great colleague. Greg, gosh. The two of you with dinesh d'souza put together an absolutely magnificent case about what unfortunately looks to anybody paying attention like a stolen election. So you make that case, I want to ask you some questions about it because I know there are people that maybe they're skeptical. I think if you see the movie, it's hard to be skeptical, but tell me and my audience, Catherine, how did you come to this information? Tell us about true the vote. How did this whole process start where you believed that it was provable that we could show what happened? Well, treat about started in 2010. And over these many years, we've seen the continuation of process. And so, you know, you begin to see the warning signs. You begin to know that your head that the process is headed in a direction that soon enough was going to be irretrievable. When we crossed over into 2020 and laws were being changed by Fiat by lawsuit, the push for mail in ballots, the dropping or the installation of these privately funded drop boxes. All of this together gave us unfortunately a pretty clear formula of four exploitation because we knew that the voter rolls were fast ten years of our work. We knew that they were inaccurate. We knew that the push of those of those roles into max pay a lot of ballots was going to be given a lot of loose ballots around that aren't going to find their intended.

"Hey, okay, so an hour one, we've got our friend Catherine engelbrecht and I say friend lightly. I love her. She's amazing. I don't know her well, but I've been getting to know her because we were at a couple of the premieres for the film. I hosted, I was a co host with dinesh's daughter, Danielle, for the virtual premiere that was in Las Vegas. And before that, we were at Mar-a-Lago. And so I'm getting to know her. Okay, let me say that in our two today, we have a really special ask me taxes every week on Thursday and hour two in the first segment we do and ask me taxes today's is very special. Then after that, we have something unprecedented. Ladies and gentlemen, I, Eric metaxas, will interview as my guest, Albin sadar. Have you heard of him? Albin sadar wrote an article that's published in American greatness. It's published at stream dot org and I'm going to interview Alban and it's actually very serious article it relates to what I'm going to speak to Catherine engelbrecht about after that we have our weekly conversation with the talbots Pete and Seth Talbot about business questions and on and on and on. So that's today we have tomorrow the Babylon B folks. The Babylon B now again, I want to say, if you're not getting these videos, you are just listening to this on the radio, you're missing some things. And I want to clarify again, there are people who get some kind of a, I guess it's Salem radio sends out some daily thing daily video update or something with me. That is not, I mean, I hope people aren't getting barraged with emails that they don't want. But I don't send those out. What I want to send you is a personal email from me, Eric metaxas dot com. It covers all kinds of stuff beyond the radio show. It has photographs in it from my life, it just has things that I, you know, and sometimes can't share on the radio. I want to be clear about that. And then it has links, of course, to all these videos. And you're missing a lot of stuff because the people who just listen on the radio and Alvin, I find this funny. They have no idea that I have a mustache now. They assumed that, well, why would anything change? Well, if you're not watching the show, you're not even going to know about this stuff. So I want to be clear. And if you sign up now, your first time, your first time signing up. When you get the email and the newsletter, you also get a pack of smokes. A pack of sigs. That part is a joke. You don't get a peck of 6. Okay, so I want to be clear about that. All right, I also want to be clear, we still have space at the Socrates event. Now folks, there's not a lot of space, but I would love it to be over full because maybe I've never mentioned this, but Charlie duke walked on the moon. Yeah. Yeah. And I'm going to introduce him and if you could be there or if you want to send somebody there, I said, I don't care if we give away there's a few tickets left and I said, if somebody wants to go and get 25% off, if that's what's going to take to send a young person or something like that, you can use a code VIP 25 that there's just a handful of those, but I'm happy to do it because I'd rather that the place be over full. So if you know somebody who can get there, it's going to be a big deal. Charlie duke walked on the moon. Some people, some people call him the space cowboy. Some people call him the gangster of love. Some people call him Maurice, but you know what? It doesn't matter what they call him. He is, to me, he'll always be Charlie duke, and I'm going to interview him and it's going to be really crazy. So I want to say that, you got to go to Socrates in the city dot com, that's all I'll say. Yeah, and real quick, there are going to be a lot of seriously, a lot of celebrities will be there because it's an important event. So there may be some Giuliani's there. I'm not going to say which, but I'm going to tell you that they're going to, you're going to see that this is kind of a next level gathering, ladies and gentlemen. And by the way, if you send somebody there, you can see my mustache in person. And I want to tell you in person, it's three dimensional. That's the difference between visual and in person. But radio, it's zero dimensions. You have no sense of my facial hair situation. All.
"catherine" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"Catherine Gregg, welcome to America first one on one. Thanks for having us. Thank you. All right, so let's start with just a quick introduction. What you do, what your background is, Catherine, talk to us about a true the vote and then Greg your credentials, your qualifications, to collect the data for this movie. Let's start with you, Catherine. I started true the vote in 2010, quite by accident. I thought that there was a need for people to go and work at the polls. We didn't have enough volunteers. And so we set out to build those gaps and one thing led to the next, we saw problems at the polls. We wondered why the voter roll data was in shambles and that began our very first research project flash forward 12 years later and we have studied over these many years, the inch by inch by inch subversion of process. And never more never more so than 2020. And that's when I brought in my longtime business partner Greg Phillips to help us take a different tack on evaluating what really happened in the 2020 election. So you were a private citizen, just concerned about the integrity of our elections, created this organization ended up testifying before Congress and then through their vote becomes this incredible influence for fair and transparent elections. Okay, Greg, talk to us about what you've done in the past, what your qualifications are and what you brought to the table for 2000 mules. I got into politics in 1982. Now what is that? 40 years ago. So it's pretty amazing. Since then, I've had the great opportunity and great fortune to work and 22 countries. On elections, I've worked in the United States. Really mostly in the south, but really across the United States. And since Catherine and I connected and started working on this project, it has been a real clarifying opportunity for us to begin to describe the work that we

"O 5 7 or Mike pillow dot com. You just got Eric. Folks, very excited right now. To have Catherine, I can't even pronounce your last name. Engelbrecht is close enough. Catherine engelbrecht to talk about 2000 mules, the film, Catherine, you're with true the vote. And you have been just an absolute hero for years on this subject, but now all of your work comes to fruition in the film 2000 mules. I have the honor of participating in the film. Tell my audience what you can, that they wouldn't know about this film. Oh, how hard it was to get the research to actually make it. It comes across because of Daenerys talent. It's a very sort of elegant package, but the true story of how it came to be and the amount of data and the amount of heartache that we had to juggle was significant. Well, I guess I want to get to that because there are people let's be honest. If you've seen the film and again, it's 2000 mules, since we're not affiliated with Fox News channel, we're allowed to promote the film 2000 mules. And I want to say that if you've seen the film and if you don't have an animus against what it says, it's rather obvious that it's complicated forensics went in to this. And so I love the way people just kind of wave it aside. Catherine, I mean, anybody who knows you or bothers to get to know you knows that you don't take this lightly. You're not some activist. You care about the truth. So describe to my audience who haven't yet seen the film, what is the forensics involved, where you're able to pinpoint dramatic levels of criminal activity. I mean, again, this is dramatic doesn't really do it justice. Go ahead. Right. Absolutely. Well, what we relied upon was cell phone data, taken from your apps, apps on your phone. So this is a technology that's really only been in play for the last four or 5 years at this level. It is reliant upon apps on your phone that are sending up signals that give a great deal of information about your location about everything from your LAT long to the elevation of the phone. And of course the time. And so with that as the backdrop, as you begin to aggregate apps, you begin to get a very clear picture of what a pattern of life looks like. And that's broadly referred to as geospatial data. So that's the data that we purchased to begin to ferret out the patterns of abuse around drop boxes, which we determined by frequency. How many visits were paid to drop boxes and you can do that again by creating a basic digital fence, the whole world is geocoded digitally, digital fence around the drop box, and then how many times a cell phone went through that fence. It's a simple equation, far more complicated than it sounds, but it's a simple equation that then after we have that much data, you can begin to see patterns rather quickly. So.

So this idea that we could live this kind of utopic notion of what modernism was going to give us. This was also formed in relationship to devastation culturally and terms of world. War two it. Oh it's like when you think of who moved here and who was designing houses from schindler on it was really a even a brecht writing for hollywood films like that is so interesting to me as also as a as a place of loss angeles in what is iconic about the idea of a better healthier in. La is no longer affordable to live in the city. We have over fifty thousand people on house right now in the city. It's it's really quite astonishing to see what's happening in the parks and on the sides of highways in los angeles. It's just completely inconceivable that as a culture and a community we allow. This is devastating. And i needed to speak about that. And i didn't i you know. We all assumed that hillary would get rain. But i actually didn't have those assumptions. I actually saw all the percolation of what we went through in the last four years and i felt an incredible need to talk about the times that we are living in.

Linda and stewart resnick. And i was really struck by the goals that you've outlined as department chair which include raising scholarship funds to ensure arts education is actually accessible to all students. Which seems like the real center of of what you hope to be able to do. Can you talk a little bit about what changes you're hoping to make to create more accessible education for students in the arts. Yeah no absolutely. I mean one of the greatest things bhai. Ucla has historically amazing art department. we are a public university being a public university. We do not have the same kind of funding opportunities in relationship to getting students. And it's getting harder and harder to get our top choices because we have places like yale who also then not only do full scholarships but then they actually do a stipend to live upon as well. I think that those who can afford an education should actually pay for an education but i am completely opposed to going into debt for education so i was very careful about my words in my interview in the la times where. I laid out my goals because my goal is that art students are able to leave with a degree debt. Free and in order to do that. I need to raise money for a scholarship to create a larger endowment so that we can accomplish that for both undergraduate and graduate students we need to further endow more positions in the art department and that is specifically for adjunct it is also unsustainable for adjuncts to be living in the way that they live now and i was adjunct for a long time. it is it is not sustainable not to have medical insurance and it is not sustainable for somebody to potentially live on twenty thousand dollars a year here in los angeles. That's not sustainable. So i'm really interested in sustainability in terms of also how much the adjunct community brings to the overall amazing education opportunity for both graduate undergraduate students and we need to celebrate that versus. Make it a detriment for them. And so by endowing more positions we can create an ability to potentially give two to three year contracts that include medical insurance and then we're allowing pool of really amazing young artists to be able to have their first opportunities to teach at a university like ucla. And then hopefully be able to gain employment in other places so it's a it's a two tiered thing in relationship to students leaving in debt but that also that we are kinder and more responsible to those who give us so much within the department held you manage your of pedological life with your art and life as an artist there. Are those clauses again right. I mean at this point it all seems like it just flows together. You know it really does. And i think i'm pretty good at time management. I have a really good assistant. Who really helps me. Extraordinarily and at this point the experience of making the work and the knowledge in relationship to what. I wanna make the experiences that i try to put forth to figure out what i'm making all feel incredibly fluid. They're not fraught. You know. I think that i would say that in the nineties and in my thirties i had more anxiety. And at this point i am beyond mid career artists. Because i'm sixty. And i've been making work in the art world for now thirty years and i think that i'm really just excited about the continuation of being able to talk about what i see around me during my lifetime and live out my life with the love of my beautiful family and friends. And i'm really. Hokey gonna cry about that right now because it is I worked really really hard. And that is the hard thing about having multiple closet so to speak as sometimes there were too many clothes and And i feel that. I'm i've been able to pivot and move and be aware in continued to feel that i'm tied into the things that are interesting for me and i have the incredible support of being able to have the longevity that i've had and relationship to being an artist and i wish that everybody had those kinds of experiences catherine. I have one last question for you. It's not particularly profound. But it is one that i'm highly curious curiosity. Is it true that you've been watching the soap opera days of our lives since you were sending sip of water. Sorry yeah yeah. I can tell you everything that's happening right now up to date with days of our lives. But it's like i am really have i can tell you about all the characters all the history of the characters. I'm a walking encyclopedia of days of our lives. And why what. Is it a diesel. We're lives you know something that i watched with my mom. I guess that they. I don't know they became another place of a dysfunctional family for me. Like all the drama. Like if that drama was the drama than do i have to think about my own dramas so to speak and then you just get tied up in a really dumb hokey way like and it's something that i could talk about with my mom. I guess today. I called her but this literally a conversation i had yesterday. Okay mom okay if lonnie is really the daughter of this character and abe is. The father does that mean that. They had sex when she was going out with when abe was going out with a sister like like that's like literally a conversation i will have with my mom. And she's like. I don't know elgible just have to see laugh to unravel so it gives a little touching point for my mom and i in this shared history of these characters in the life of salem and then i've run into the characters and l. a. And i even had one of the characters. Come to my studio first studio visit. And i've always wanted to make still lives. I'm putting it out there on design matters. Maybe.

"Unable to buy their own. Homes starts burning down beautiful houses. And i believe that this is also. This film was also in conversation with another film that preceded it. That was also created with still photographs. Can you talk a little bit about that. Yeah that would be. Chris markers found lajja attache which was made pretty much. After you and i were both warrant was made in nineteen sixty two and the biggest fear in nineteen sixty two was a nuclear obliteration in relationship to the cold war You have to think about the cuban missile crisis. Another other things that were happening. Historically at that moment. In time. In which chris marker made lajja tae which is about love and longing and memory. And it's kind of like a pseudo sci fi film made out of stills but it's an incredible political poem to that time and I wanted to do a conversation in terms of that may be at this point in time. the notion of nostalgia and modernism as utopic. Dream has also failed us so using my good friend who i photograph for years pig pen aka whose whose name real name is stash feel piggy and i have a very very close relationship and i asked pig pen to star as the protagonist of this film and it was also the last piece that i made in my west adam studio behind my house because i had moved. Finally i was going to move to a bigger studio and so it is It is about the fact that i will never be able to afford a case study house or any kind of house which was supposed to be affordable at this point in time in which they were made at also mir's the time period of when logic was made and so it's a quandary. It's a quandary to where we are at this point in time but it also is a trans body. It's a queer body and we all know in terms of economics that one of the hardest economical groups's lesbians actually and order to be able to own property or prosper any way because we still do not have wage equality in this country so it was like trying to put in all these ideas of a lot of other bodies of work that i've mapped out all into one piece. Pig pen is one of the two most photographed people in your body of work. Yeah Can you talk a little bit about why you keep coming back to photograph them. Pig pen is just one of the people that i've just really really loved my life as a friend i mean i have gone through so much with pig pen. We have gone through losing so much in our community to performing together with ron eighty two. Just our bodies are are you know are entwined on a very emotional friend way. I would do anything for for pig. Pen and pick penn would do anything for me. And i think it's really really important to also say because it has been brought up in a number of interviews about pig pen being one of the most photographed people as house. One of my best friends. I'd axa Is that I think that a lot of people view this as a potential muse. And i don't view my friendships as muses or who. I photograph over and over as news. I might really enjoy looking at them. But by no means are they muses their friends that i'm i honor in relationship to kind of image making i i have a harder time with us notion of muse. That's interesting would never have occurred to me that that pig pen was your music. If if i had to pick anything or anyone. That was amused. You i would say it would be culture. Yeah exactly thank you for. Wouldn't have even occurred to me. What was it like. Was it different directing so to speak a film verses taking a photograph because it is a film made of photographs. I'm just wondering about that relationship here. No i think that it wasn't big and it was interesting. Because i have a longtime assistant heather rasmussen. Who's just amazing. And does everything for me and it was harder for her than it was for me because she was saying like. Do we need to store report this like. How are you going to do this. And i said it lives in my head. I can't necessarily. what am i going to do. Draw stick figures. Because that's about all. I can draw anyway and i said no this. This piece lives in my head. And i knew that i wanted to create a sense of multiple cameras. I knew that within the stills. I wanted it to. I wanted to rack focus and then bring things into focus. I knew that i to use the newspaper as a platform of what comes in our lives and how we deal with it. I also really well done by designer. I can say is good. And i knew that this was i knew that the protagonist was an artist who lived in their studio. And that's all that they could afford and through as they were making a peace peace extended with the incredible amount of fires. That always happened in california. To fire in itself is one of the most feared elements in california. We have major wildfires burning right now but what. It is in also in terms of notions of loss in a in ideas. Around what we all have lost through. You know Not being able to afford to buy a house to live on the fringe of one's ability in society. What modernism was supposed to apply than you have. Stores like design within reach. Which is you know all. We all know in our our joke of our community. It's designed with outreach. You know and whole foods is whole. Paycheck wholefoods is hall paycheck. So this idea that we could live.

"Forty six times from the shoulder down to the wrist with two inch needles twelve gauge needles. But i remember. We wanted the gauge. To be big enough that it would create like appearance of body armor and a certain and that i wanted the cutting and the needles to be completely precise because i was thinking about whole binds kind of henry the eighth portrait in a certain way and i was thinking about. What the word pervert man in nineteen ninety four and my community especially when there was a beginning of a divide within our own community. And this is very specific. It's not just for what pervert means from jesse helms the holding mapplethorpe photographs on the senate floor. But it also came from internal homophobia of our own community of again the workers. The you know people who practice were also perverts and that there are portions of the gay and lesbian community are quote unquote normal. And i didn't like the notion of normal. I've never liked the binary of normal or abnormal. I'm more interested in the complexity of sexuality and desire and so was Yeah was that moment. Where in the same. My friend steak tattooed dyke on the back of her neck. That i was going to have rail. And do this cutting and that was done in san francisco in a studio. Why was making a portrait series. It was attended by an enormous amount of my friends including the incredible trans historian. Susan stryker was there and it was you know there were The needles were done first. And then i sat in the chair and roelant did the cutting and then we. I put the hood on and we. We made some without the hood and some with hood. But i didn't want my face. Because i wanted the notion of visibility to be placed on language. So what does the word pervert mean. How do we deal with language you know. Is this enough of a pervert for you and it's also really beautiful and then you actually have to deal with the beauty of it as well because it's not dripping blood it's not it's don in such a way that it just looks like almost a red tattoo but it is blood coming to the surface. There is a real elegance to the photo of the way it's constructed. Had you been very involved in body modification at that time as well. How hard was it for you to have forty six to gauge needles. Put through your skin. Not that difficult actually because when you prepare yourself. It's totally different. If i'm walking through the house. And i stubbed my toe on a furniture. I sit there and i weep. I'm like really angry. I can't believe i've heard myself but when you've already been kind of in the leather community and you are doing this in the dungeons on your own you. You know what you're kind of doing and so you. Your mindset is different. I mean if if something goes to the doctor and get gets a shot. The only thing that is hurting is actually the fear of getting the shop. So are kind of relationship to fear is so complicated as human beings. And i was never afraid because i knew that my friends were professionals and railing was a professional and that they had done this time and time again and i had done a lot of play piercing in a lot of cutting out in a private setting and so i wasn't I was very definitive. And knowing what i wanted to do and and had the mindset to go through it did you experience any of the fauria. You that sometimes occurs during body modification. Oh absolutely now your endorphins. Erc going off the rockers at it was funny because if you watch the video tape. There's one moment where it i have. The the group dead can dance playing in the background. Because i love that kind of meditative music and you know you're breathing and you're going through it and then rail and decided to stop for a moment. Try to pop a pimple on my chest. That was driving her crazy. And at that moment i lost my focus and then i started moaning a little bit more once. She went back into the cutting The cutting as much harder than the needles to go through needles are fairly quick. You know but but definitely cuttings are taken enormous amount of concentration. And your and that's partly. Why didn't want my face in. The picture is because i the endorphins are going off with my glasses off. My eyes are slightly crossed and the first thing that people look at in portraits is people's faces usually and it again had to remain on the body and about the body image was first shown to the public in nineteen. Ninety five at the whitney biennial. And you've said that since then you struggle to look at that photo now. How come well. It's not necessarily struggle. It's i haven't set a struggle. It's it's it's a photograph that i don't need to live with. It's a photograph that i made that. I'm proud of and that represented that moment in time. You know i had. I had several collectors at different moments. Say how powerful that peace is live with and that it's in their bedroom and they wake up every morning and i guess i started thinking. Could i wake up every morning but one of the things that i love about photography it defines the sense of time and within the defined sense of time of that you know going back to that geeky kind of cardiac persona notion of the decisive moment. Like pervert is a decisive moment on my part but that doesn't necessarily define me as a sixty year old woman now so the frozenness this of my time in my community. I'm so profoundly. Honored that my friends and i myself chose to use ourselves in relationship to community to make and work on a body of work that created a certain history in a certain idea visibility. But that doesn't mean that were held in that time in the same way that were held in the time in terms of the making of the work. Before i ask you about the third self-portrait self portrait nursing. I want to ask you about your thoughts on domesticity in your work and you said that self portrait cutting was about the relationship between queer nece and domesticity. I'm wondering if you can talk a little bit. More about what that notion between squareness domesticity is or was well throughout history. People fall in love and throughout history and relationship to homophobia especially after say the you know the roaring twenties so to speak and when kind of the puritanical notion of homosexuality ended up entering the kind of religious indoctrination of not being acceptable and so forth and the bible misinterpreted as so forth When you fall in love you often wanna live with the person that you fall in love with and so domestic day was always literally a part of the notion of having a relationship and being in love and and opening up one's home of cohabitation and to then be denied that both on legal fronts as well as just rhetorically within our society is incredibly fraught. And so this notion of coming out of the closet always made me laugh. Because it's a closet is a domestic space closet is where one another's close co. Mingle if you don't have your own walk and 'cause has which i don't but a closet is where a co mingling of the every day happens and so yeah so it's you know. Domestic has always been a part of love and relationship and trying to build a life a home with another person after cutting pervert. You drove across the us in your rv photographing lesbian families. Women who had children who lived in groups couples engaging in everyday household activities across the country and you titled the portfolio domestic. You looking for something specific in that body of work. Well that body of work also was. I had been in a relationship then for three to four years with another amazing queer photographer. Important lesbian artists on historical level. Who should be. She's in books like stolen glances. But it's Her name is co. Sheila brooke and we are worried by us together. We were gonna do. We have been in three year relationship where she ironically was living on. Sanborn have where. I ironically lived with pam. My first domestic relationship and i was still in custody..

"The original version of the alward. What did you think when you were asked about their using your photos of women in drag for the titles. I was funny. Because i there's another photograph that you probably know because you. You've really researched man. You know my work but for our listeners is a photograph of from the series domestic of two women in a swimming pool Mickey and eileen eileen was the producer of the l word i- chacon. I lean chicken so for my first show at regan projects. Her in maguy hosted my opening dinner party at their house and so when she approached me we had already forged a friendship in the art world. And i just thought yeah. Go for it. you're making a show. Let's like us lesbians with mustaches. And the title and i think that is also a different kind of radic -ality of los angeles because of the kind of lipstick lesbian Positioning of los angeles as a city. That i thought it was actually pretty brave that she wanted to do that. And it can noted also another part of the community in l. a. that might not be actually represented within the series. Yeah i love those. I love those opening credits What do you think of the reboot. Have you been watching. you know. i haven't yet. I have to. I have to get on that. I haven't watched the reboot and it's just because there's so much to stream during the pandemic there was a lot extreme and i'm just not caught up on the ellwood yet but i will. It's it's fine. yeah. I'm loving it. I'm absolutely loving and just seeing bentini together. Not as a couple but to seeing them in the same room on the same sofa makes me happy. Catherine you created three portraits in less than a decade three self-portraits in less than a decade that propelled you to even greater awareness and fame in the art world. Then beyond and like to talk to you about all three if that's okay. Yeah the. I is titled self-portrait cutting you created this piece in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and a photograph of you from behind facing away from the camera your shirtless. There's a drawing carved into the skin of your back featuring stick figure women smiling and holding hands and behind them as a house with some birds flying and it looks like it could be a child's drying. You're standing in front of what looks like a baroque type wallpaper. What did this photograph represent. At the time. The time it was something that i actually was is a photograph out of morning My first domestic relationship. And the only one i had ever had before of being with my current partner and wife. Julie burley was with a woman. Pam greg and i was utterly in love and we built a house and we got two puppies and we were living the domestic dream. I imagined in my mind that it would go on for a long period of time. That the two puppies would potentially turn into children. And all of all of that which was still hard in nineteen ninety-three to imagine you know very difficult nineteen ninety-three to imagine and then blood as a substances the substance that was feared. And you know one of the things that i did say in the quote that sm was never sexual wasn't actually completely true. because pam. and i met in a leather context and ended up being lovers. I've had other lovers within the leather community in that context so there is a bit of Kind of pleasure in terms of sexuality mixed into it in terms of my history of relationships but pam broke up with me and i was devastated and for year spent Doodling on a pad. And i would doodle these tick figure girls with the house with the sun coming out of the cloud. Says the sense of optimism. Right that i will find love again. And then i decided to go ahead and make it a cutting and make it a portrait and i was in the process of making the other portraits at that time and that it was just a profound sense of loss and longing not just for me personally and losing my first domestic relationship but the notion of loss overall in terms of the aids epidemic and watching it decimate all of these couples in communities. So even though there's to stick figure girls with skirts but it was yeah. I wanted to make a very complicated universal peace that went beyond my own personal sadness of the loss of my domestic relationship. And that is what i came up with. Can you talk about. How the artist. Judie bamber carved the illustration into your back. What was it like for her. I think she was really nervous. I mean it's actually on videotape. We have both on documented on videotape We don't have self portrait nursing. But we have the cutting my back. End pervert documented self-portrait cutting happened in los angeles in my new living room and what we called custody estrogen which was predominantly a lesbian Apartment building in korea town on catalina street as they're lean amazing history. Jenny shimizu lived above me and there was just incredible group of of of dikes in their motorcycles. That had all live together in this apartment building and then my good friends. Mike and sky. Who had photographed. Were there to support judy. And my other good friend. Who was the photographer. Connie samaras took the dark sides out of the camera and operated the four-by-five camera because there wasn't a you know it's a self portrait but it couldn't be done like on a tripod with a cable release because it was four by five so judy practice on chicken thighs before she brackets on my body. I hope they're photos documenting. What's amazing is one woman the most precise painters ever. I mean her work as unbelievable if you don't know her work her work and were born on the same day in the same year so we both are share april fourteenth nineteen sixty one. She was one of my best friends. And i wanted an apprehension in the cutting i wanted it to not be done by. Somebody like microscope. I would have been able to do it perfectly. I wanted the blood to kind of like almost like as if the surface of the skin was scratched but at moments like you know the scalpel would actually make mark. That was more definitive and it was never meant to be a permanent cutting. I guess you know it became obviously a pretty iconic portrait and then in nineteen ninety-four. You created self portrait pervert. This time. you're sitting in front of a black and gold brocade. Your hands are folded in your lap. You're facing the camera. Your head is completely covered in a black leather gimped mask your wearing leather chaps in the word pervert is carved in bloody kinda losing very ornate letters across your chest and the body modifier ray lynn.

"As a collaboration with my good friend. From collards richard hawkins. Who's a fellow artist where we started making portraits of our mutual friends at that point and then he realized that it was my body of work and he just said this is. This is yours. Go with it But he he introduced me really thinking about holbein. And what nobility is and what that is within our community. And we had amazing extensive conversations about that. And richard as a very brilliant person who i felt just helped lead of a pathway for me in terms of continuing to photograph the community after being in having understand that the title of the show being in having was a play on psychoanalyst jacques locations idea that men have the phallus while women as the embodiment of erotic. Desire and art are the fellas and when i was reading this. I'm like is this deep serious so this is serious and i have to tell you that. A title came from the woman with her arms crossed over her chest. Peeing in on our backs. So she is an amazing philosopher from toronto canada by the name of annemarie smith and she was one of the head kind of political philosophers and teachers at cornell but she was my lover at the time and Met her in canada at a bar. You know and she had been making postcards with a friend That were really awesome. Roddick postcards from this collective in canada. And i'm sorry. I don't remember the collective's name anymore. But i was in the bar going. Hey do you. Who made these. And then the woman. I was talking to said. Yeah my myself and my next door neighbor did and then it started a very long friendship and love affair with amery smith including the portrait. That's on the bed the self-portraits on our bed when she came to visit me in california while i was in grad school that was a student's installation in their studio and they let us have it as a little of private palace so to speak during her visit august wrapped together. That's the beautiful thing about community right. Is you meet people. And you're in this kind of you know in the eighty s.

"I thought that i would be accepted in society. I carried that. Fear an internal homophobia within me and it didn't happen like legitimately until i moved to san francisco and i was sitting on a curb with my best friend dean at that moment in time dean moser who i had met at a residence club that i was working for my room and board. While i went to san francisco art institute and dean thought i had a crush on him and so dean said cathy. Something i have to tell you. I'm i'm i'm gay and i was like. Oh well i i am too you know. And that was the first time that it was actually spoken. And then there was no hesitation after speaking. What's so interesting to me. In terms of looking at your body of work is despite the difficulty that you might have experienced. And the inner homophobia you did seem right from the very beginning in your body of work to i. Embrace isn't even the right word. but celebrate. Celebrate your your sexuality and your gayness. Yeah no i think that i did but it wasn't right away actually took some time. I mean there was the side person kathy. Ob ride who everybody who is a friend called me calls me cathy by cathy opie published in on our backs magazine not catherine opie so i took on these different kinds of personas i suppose to again create a different compartments of my life and what is now. I guess that's in some ways like having multiple closets in one tiles. And i i think that you know Really beyond being kathy on our backs and celebrating that through a queer culture. It wasn't until becoming a part of act up and queer nation that i decided to make my work publicly about mike awareness. But i would have to say that. A good portion of my work was trying to be very serious street photographer in san francisco and then quickness within my work at cal arts was actually the dissemination and observation of master-plan communities in southern california which i kind of grew up. Been from moving. From sandusky to rancho bernardo pie california and watched that turn into masterplan community. So i think you know. The quickness was always also involved in relationship to how do we fit squirrelled. And you know if there's this kind of separation in relationship to idea of community than how do i portray my community and i think it was a quandary for quite some time. The quadri also. I think began even before you committed to photography as a profession. At at one point after you graduated high school you considered becoming a kindergarten teacher and even went to Virginia mont college to study early childhood education. I mean that's in thinking about the pathways of a life. You were on that. Pathway i was i profoundly love children like i really really loved children and i suppose that's even the other aspect of clearness is. How was i going to become a mom. Because that was always what i wanted to be. Even as a child. I would tell my mom that i was going to have twelve children for some reason that i saw Yeah that would have been too many. Yeah so kindergarten you know. Be a camp counselor for a long time. And i really liked kids so i just imagined that i would be pretty fun. Kindergarten teacher a year into your studies to become a teacher. You call your mom and said. I'm an artist and i need to go to art school. How did she respond. I mean she was both your parents really encourage you to be this kindergarten teacher. Had they respond to you wanting to be an artist. Well my mom was the one who was supporting my ability to go to college. My father was it was financially capable but chose to not financially support my endeavor of receiving a college degree. He kind of believed that when you turn eighteen. You're on your own kind of guy generous now right so so my mom you know. That was hard for her. She actually took a loan off of her car that she owned outright for me to go ahead and move to san francisco and i picked san francisco art institute. I wasn't thinking about. San francisco is being a very gay city. It was just like in california and a really good notable arts school that had like ansel adams and minor white and dorothea laying and the legacy of that program in terms of photography is is actually. Why chose it and mom's supported. She said okay. But i'm only going to be able to pay the tuition kathy. This is a really big tuition. And just so you know in nineteen eighty one. It was about seven thousand dollars a year and she was able to get me all the way through paying the tuition and i did get some scholarship money and then grad school was again up to me so if i was going to go to graduate school than i had to do it on my own. You left san francisco to pursue your mfa at california institute of the arts in valencia. You said that that transition sucked in. What way did it suck well. I was leaving a community. That was profoundly also becoming decimated from aids and i all of a sudden moved back into a very hot off southern california environment in the middle of a master plan community that i had exited when i was you know basically nineteen years old from from living with at home in in powei and to be all of a sudden going from the bay area of this incredible city. And it's the first time. I had ever lived in a city back to the suburbs where it was really hot and i couldn't wear my leather jacket year. Round like i could in san francisco and being kind of newly possessed of my my clearness my being dyke. It wasn't even queen s. I don't even think we use the word. Queer and in one thousand nine hundred five but my my kind of being a dyke and what that meant for me. Yeah and it was even i. Even though i had catherine lord and millie wilson and mazing people around me at cal arts who celebrated that and definitely added onto my ability to understand. Theory and feminism. And you know had. Douglas crimp come through the school enormous about people at that time period. It's still wasn't san francisco. Yeah as a way to cope. You started photographing planned community. That was being built across the road from your apartment which ultimately became part of your thesis portfolio in this work included photographs of quote matching.

Say well mybookie spooky. Three thousand words. How many pages would it be will to pinch. What paint size have you got any images to be senate as well and i now think watching on a journal somebody recently so they'd go pages. Have nothing accepts. Loins for writing in them and although it was initially foot about one hundred pages it's ended up at two hundred because of that they space needed for people to ryan yet yet yet so it's pretty much doubled I find that really interesting.

You can have a template you can follow it in you. Put out there into the world and it'll be fine. It doesn't it doesn't mean anything but i've learned a lot from you actually from reading so much of what she do now. You change people's minds this is that it's no it's no simple. There's a lot to it. There's a lot to think about to get it right..

I think that's that's an important point. So thank you very much. Thank you both. Thank you hugh welcome back listeners. So joe we just spent a very pleasant half hour. So with catherine gladwin. I'm so pleased. She agreed to come in and talk to us. I had been following catherine for one. In fact i saw her. The first time. I saw her in person was. She was on a panel at the northwest via conference which i was Very privileged to attend. That's a conference run by joann hawkins and a v. as in the northwest northwest via conference and she was on the panel that i so i i was really inspired by by catherine then and a following her ever. Since what's the story. Hey very very inspirational. It just shows if you really really well tate. Various away you know. I'm gonna put my hand up here because our procrastinate excuse his reform of procrastination and we all am. I'm sure you'd put you under there. Must be moments knew thought. Oh shallow shontae or whatever. It is and it's waiting for that moment to well. Its way out to figure it out. But i think kathleen has shown us that you don't sit there any pitchy policy. That don't make excuses all the time. Just gavin go for it Kathrine is hugely successful nominee district. Yeah now that's i think there's a couple of things i want to pick up on life that you just said not not something that katherine said first of all the idea of sitting there in your party. I i totally get that. In fact one was eight. We used to say okay. You can have your pity party for the next hour but then to get out or two tomorrow you can have the day off tomorrow visit policy but get back on the horse and get going but i also do think and i think it's hugely important especially now with still in pandemic times on. We're still in difficult mental health situation from celikkol. So i think it is fats right knowledge that they're all times when you really don't feel up to doing things and i've had a couple of days like that recently i. I haven't felt very well over the weekend. Upset dumb whatever And i was planning to do all sorts of things yesterday. For example i was gonna get the book finished. I was going to do this. I did a late on the couch and read a book day because that was actually all i felt fit for today on backup and i'm fine and i think that we do need to acknowledge that there are days where we need to do that. We need to do a day once in a while. Absolutely totally agree. You know it..
