Hard Hitting Truths With Kurt Schlichter
"Just start off where we're at right now. The Democrats have gotten, I think the panic is set in that November is coming. And they're doing everything they possibly can to avoid what is shaping up to be a wipe out, especially in the house, probably in the Senate. And then all of a sudden, out of the blue, and you're an attorney, I'm an attorney. You have the FBI just go pull an amazingly stupid stunt as a way to peers right now. Where are we at right now? What's going on? They're continuing their effort to frame Donald Trump for the same reason they have for 6 years. It's really a message to anyone who's not within the establishment that the incompetence losers, weirdos and mutations who make up our ruling class are not going to just give up power. They're going to try and hold on. Look, this isn't a flex from strength. This is a flex from weakness. And I'm not even sure that they expected the blowback that they got. So it took a little while for a lot of Republicans to find their spine. The first day McConnell wouldn't say anything about it. Because there were floods. And that's all he could talk about. He had to talk about the floods. Boy, McConnell. Boy, he used to be a knife fighter. Now he's really becoming a joke. I mean, if you can get your behind handed to you like he did by Chuck Schumer, which is like being tricked by your beagle, you know, you're losing a step. And then Tim Scott, who's perfectly nice guy. I like Tim Scott. I love him as a neighbor. He's got no business being a leader of the Republican Party or a candidate for president because he just does a gay. He actually goes on CBS News. And says, we need to wait and see what this is about and what they found. No, no, we don't.
How NFL Player Tony Dungy Came to Faith
"On the program before, but for people who don't know your stories about coming to faith or when did the penny drop for each of you? It took me a little while. My parents, especially my mother, tried to teach me that. But as a 12 year old, 14 year old, your honor I was listening or it doesn't make sense. And my mom would tell me those things, you know, what would a profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? Make sure you're in tune with God. Just what you're saying. The creation is great. All these things are wonderful, but don't fall in love with the creation, fall in love with the creator. But it didn't hit me until I was 21. And I got to the National Football League and my coach chuck noll, who was a tremendous coach Hall of Fame coach. First thing he said to us is don't make football your whole life. It's your profession now because you're getting paid for it. But if you make it your whole life, you're going to be disappointed. And then I see all these guys and they had two Super Bowl rings when I got there, but they're saying the same thing. And hey, you got to come to Bible study. You got to come to chapel tonight. And what franchise was this? The Pittsburgh Steelers. So the Pittsburgh city, I love hearing stories like this. So here you go, you're practically a kid 21 years old. Going to the Pittsburgh Steelers. And there's a culture of some players in the Pittsburgh Steelers. They get God. And they're willing to share this with the younger players. That is pretty amazing.
More Reactions To The FBI's Raid of Mar-A-Lago
"Here's The Wall Street Journal editor. Well, first let me play a little audio because there's a lot of great audio on this yesterday. Let's start with senator Rick Scott on Fox business with degan McDowell, cut number 8. Well, first of all, it makes you mad. I mean, this is unprecedented. A former president potential opponent to Biden in 24 is house gets rated. We know the Biden administration targets their opponents. Merrick Garland's targets, democratic opponents. This is well, here's what needs to happen today. Separately, mayor Garland, Christopher wray, Joe Biden need to do press conference, take all questions, explain why they're doing what they're doing, what each of them knew when this should scare every American until we get answers. This should be, you should have unbelievable concern. I got more phone calls. Let's go over to Ted Cruz. Cut number 13. That's exactly right. What we've got to do is win control of the House and Senate so that we have the authority to engage in oversight. It was interesting that the director of the FBI was there for one round of questions. At the end of the round of questions, we were supposed to have a second round. He said, no, I got a plane to catch. I'm sorry I gotta go. He didn't want another round of questions as chuck grassley observed. Wait a second. You've got your own plane. The FBI has a private jet just for you, so you're playing to catch it. You just don't want to have any more investigation. We need serious oversight. We need accountability. The people who have been political and partisan need to be fired. And if they broke the law right, let's hear Marco Rubio say the same thing. Cut number ten. You know, an FBI raid looking for supposed classified documents is a ridiculous alibi. Unlike anyone else in the federal government, no president can be guilty of illegally handling classified information because a president has complete and final authority to decide whether something is classified or not.
The Intelligence Community Takes Their Revenge on Trump
"Community, they have 6 ways from Sunday at getting back at you. So even for a practical supposedly hard nosed businessman, he's being really dumb to do this. What do you think the intelligence community would do if they were more? I don't know. But from what I am told, they are very upset he has treated them and talked about them. And they are taking their revenge, greetings, their friends. This is America first. I'm Sebastian gorka, your host former strategist from a deputy assistant to president Trump. Don't forget the FBI isn't just a law enforcement agency. It is in fact a domestic intelligence agency, the emails of FBI agents end with dot IC intelligence community. So Chuck Schumer's threat, not just a warning, a threat to president Trump that they can come after you is being fulfilled as we saw yesterday's rate. I can not
Who Will This 'New and Improved' IRS Target?
"In the meantime, back to this IRS thing. I mean, I'm just kind of offended. I sound like I'm like, you know, one of the woke ones right now, 'cause I'm offended, everything. But I'm offended when they think that the answer is to somehow just go after every Tom dick and Harry and Jane and Susan and Sally. And this is who will be affected. It will be your middle class. As much as they're going to try and tell you, oh, it's the 1%, no, no, no. Just in terms of, if you have that many IRS agents, who are they going to go after, and they can't, as I keep saying, they can't go after. The people that they should go after were just the billionaires, they get away with the great deal on the tax front because we've got lawmakers that are so concerned about making sure they have enough money for their next campaign. I told you yesterday about all the money. I mean, Kirsten sinema is one example. She's got donations individual donations from the private equity industry totaling over 500,000 for her last campaign. I mean, that is a lot of money, right? And I'm just looking at the numbers 54,900 from executives over at KKR, 35,000 at Carlisle, 27,300 over at Apollo. The private equity industry is a very big lobbying organization. In fact, they probably spend more money than any other industry right now. They're on K street and one of the reasons they're doing this is to give themselves the beneficial treatment when it comes to taxes. Do you know the Chuck Schumer? Collected 1.28 million from the private equity industry, including Blackstone and KKR, so you really think that he's that interested in raising taxes on this particular group of people. Go back and listen to Monday's podcast. If you want to explain or they're on why this is income and why it should be treated as income and why this is just highway robbery, frankly, of the American people and of our government, but these people in Washington I'll tell you the whole system is so darn corrupt. When you see what just went down. And when you see that they're going to effectively inflate, again, the U.S. economy artificially by spending all this money while simultaneously adding another 80 billion to go after everyday folks from the IRS all all while saying we're going to give a pass to those private equity investors. I mean, give me a break. It's not investment. It's income and they need to be taxed as such. Anyway, it's really pretty disgusting. But the whole thing is just disgusting. I mean, the idea that they want to pass this off, the name itself as somehow an inflation reduction act. Guys, you're just spending more money. All right, before I get to that, I do have one more thing I want to mention to you. You know, it's summer and we're all looking for movies and I don't know about you, but it's kind of hard sometimes. Kind of hard to find a good movie that you can enjoy watching that is representative of your values. I think that our values have gotten kind of lost and pop culture these days. And it's one of the reasons why I think it's important for all of us to think about what we're watching and who we're supporting when we watch it, right? Are you really into Disney right now with all their bogus? Or do you want to try and seek out some alternative sources of entertainment? This is where this movie in particular comes in. When I was a kid, I used to watch Cameron on that, what was that show? Oh, you know what? I got to look it up right now as I'm talking to you. This is how you know I'm recording in real time. He had that sitcom, when I was a kid, what was it? So anyone who can answer that in the questions below, extra super duper points, go to you. I'm going to come back to that in a second because it's going to drive me crazy. I remember that sitcom really, really well. Anyway, he's got a new movie out a new movie that he's backing. He's a very big Christian. He's an growing pains. Growing pains. That was the sitcom. I remember that now. Anyway, he's got a new movie that is just out. It's pretty neat. It's got a good message, and I think it's worth taking a look at as you're looking for things to watch and be entertained by. So this is called life Mark. And in this movie life Mark, it tells the story of David who has this very comfortable world that gets totally turned upside down when his birth mother, unexpectedly reaches out to him, and she's looking to meet him. He's 18 years old at that point. She only had the chance to hold him once, and she went looking for him and he finds this out. So it's really, it's an interesting storyline and probably one that happens a lot. He gets encouragement from his adopted parents, and so he embarks on this life altering journey, which really is a process of discovery and it leads to a pretty staggering truth from his past, inspired by a true story life mark is a powerful reminder that one decision, one choice can impact so much more than one life. It's a pro family pro love pro forgiveness pro reconciliation and pro new beginnings kind of movie.
Charlie Unpacks the Most Dangerous Provisions of the New Democrat Bill
"I want to start this program by going into what happened over this last weekend. According to NPR dot org, the propagandist publication funded by our taxpayer dollars, Democrats passed a major climate health and tax bill. Here is what is in it. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer gives the thumbs up as he leaves the Senate chamber after passage of the inflation reduction act. Senate Democrats after weeks of negotiations to revive the core of their election year agenda passed a spending bill, which would attempt to tackle climate change. The high cost of prescription drugs and lower the deficit by roughly $300 billion. So let's go through actually what's in the Bill. This NPR does a pretty poor job of detailing it, but we'll dance around with this, but let's start with this idea of climate change. I have to say, whoever came up with the branding around climate change is brilliant. It's an unbelievably brilliant strategy. You can call it a Trojan horse. You could call it a wolf in sheep's clothing. What's so brilliant about climate change is that you don't have to define it. Is that you have a unspecified fear that you could spend an unlimited amount of money on. Like AOC a $100 trillion. Why stop there? Why not a 130 trillion? You see, climate change is so brilliantly duplicitous. And it's a scheme to make people afraid, but they'll never actually get to the end point. That's what's so brilliant about it. So no matter how much you spend, there might be somebody with a fossil fuel somewhere in Midland, Texas, we need to spend another $100 billion to go find them. You see, if they completely change the economy into a green economy, destroying our energy supremacy, by the way, which is one of the most civilizational suicidal things that we could possibly do, they'll just then create a surveillance state to find out if someone still is using fossil fuels or natural gas, even
Pres. Trump Is Confident Manchin, Sinema Will Lose in November
"Coming. Actions have consequences too. Will Joe Manchin pay a price? For betraying his constituents, we'll Kirsten cinema, pay a price. The two Democrats who could have gotten the moon. I mean, they could have gotten whatever they wanted if they would have just held firm and stood up to the antics of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, will they? Well, president Trump was at cpac over the weekend in Dallas. And he made a promise what happened to Manchin and sinema, what happened, we're trying to figure out what the hell happened, where did this new philosophy come from? All of a sudden, 48 hours. I think if this deal passes, they will both lose their next election. I do believe that West Virginia and Arizona will not stand for what they did to them. So maybe this speech can stop them because when Manchin hears me say he's going to lose West Virginia and I'll go down and campaign against them as hard as anybody can. Huge roar from the crowd at cpac with Trump promising to campaign as hard as he can against Joe Manchin.
Washington Examiner: Inflation Reduction Act Doubles the Size of IRS
"Great analysis over at the Washington examiner by Jake Lee Leahy. This plan, which will step up enforcement mechanisms within the IRS. It's going to end up hurting the middle class. He says the additional funding for the IRS adds up to $80 billion over the next decade, it'll double the size of Uncle Sam's debt collector and put 87,000 new IRS agents into action. The result will be increased audits on small businesses and middle class taxpayers across the country. I mean, there's no way it's just going to be the top earners. You can't invest in that kind of manpower and not audit. They're going to be able to perform 1.2 million additional audits. That's not just going to be billionaires. Now, honest to goodness, is this something that anybody in America was yearning for. I got to meet the one person in the country. Who sat around and said, gosh, I hope Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin get their wish and we can have more IRS agents and double the size. Double the size. Ted Cruz pointed it out. This massive agency

The 10 Most Important Races in 2022
"Master dot com, Joe day dot com, team Herschel dot com, Ted bud dot com, Morse the number four Senate dot com, Adam laxalt dot com. JD Vance dot com, Doctor Oz dot com, smiley for Senate dot com, Ron Johnson for Senate dot com. That's not order of importance. That's the order of the states. Blake masters in Arizona, Joe Dan, Colorado, Herschel Walker, and Georgia, Ted bud in North Carolina, I think, oh, got that wrong. It's then C, but NH I was using the abbreviations. Chuck Morris in New Hampshire, Adam laxalt and Nevada, JD vents and Ohio, Doctor Oz and Pennsylvania, Tiffany smiley and Washington state and Ron Johnson in Wisconsin. That's the key. Those ten races. And I hope Peter jail gives them all Peter Thiel gives a $100 million to each of those races. Sets up an independent expenditure committee. If you're listening, Peter, I'm just saying, give a $1 billion away and win the country. It matters. It matters. We got to stop these crazy judges. Yes, we got to fix tax policy. We can fix that. We're going to have the House of Representatives in any event. And great candidates winning all across the United States last night. Republicans low end, they're going to pick up ten high end. They could pick up 40. Depends on how badly Joe Biden screws up and what happens with inflation. And right now, the misery index, I think it's baked in. The house is one. Democrats are giving up the retiring in droves. They're running away. And they should. Because redistricting plus the misery index means a Republican wave in the house.
Chuck E. Cheese Is Now Rascist
"Now a mother in New Jersey has some major beef with Chuck E. Cheese. The very popular kids mascot you never think that kids mascot. Would be guilty of racial discrimination for ignoring a high 5 attempt, but that's the charge. The woman goes by the name um sapphire on Twitter, don't ask me. She put up a video that says she shot it on July 30 that the Chuck E. Cheese location in Wayne, New Jersey. And it shows her daughter very excited, jumping up and down before putting her hand down. I seen the video, you can see the mouse high 5, some white kids on the stage before he basically stands in front of the black kid and does nothing but ignore the black girl. It's a terrible video to watch. It breaks your heart. You just ignoring the kid. What's not clear is whether or not the person inside the costume could actually see the little girl, but for my money he can't. But that doesn't matter to the woman who's gone after this rat. She wrote, now you gotta, I mean, people on Twitter write things weird, but my two YO two year old was racially discriminated against. As you can see, he gives all the white kids high 5. Now white is spelled YT. And purposely ignored my black baby. When confronted, he ignored me as well. The manager made excuses for him. By the way, like I said, she spells white YT. Is that a new thing? She was not even close to a 130 characters. She had plenty more room to do the other three letters, is that a new thing? Black in this paragraph, black gets a capital B and anywhere in the media black gets a capital B not white. We still got the small W don't, listen, no, black gets a big B sorry, white people, you're just a little common substandard W you don't get the big W so black gets a capital B and right now, not only do we not get the big W now we'll refer to as YT, two lower case letters. That's discrimination if you ask me.
FBI in for a Rude Wake-Up Call Over Hunter Biden Investigation
"Joining us right now is a friend of the program someone who is super smart and does phenomenal research and investigations, Miranda Devine from the New York Post also author of the laptop from hell, Miranda, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks Charlie grot to be with you. Thank you. So I want to talk to you about this story here. FBI, director ray, are in for a rude wake-up call over the Hunter Biden investigation to your latest piece up at the New York Post NY post dot com. What do you mean by that? Well, on Thursday, Christopher wray, the FBI director appears in Congress before they oversight committee and the Republicans there are planning to really grill him on a few very sinister and concerning issues that have come to the fore in the last week. And you probably know already about chuck gresley has had several FBI whistleblowers come to him and give him information that basically the FBI just sat on buried the Hunter Biden information that came out in 2020 in August 2020 when graz Lee and Ron Johnson were both investigating the Hunter Biden and burisma corruption connections. And then again in October 2020, which was, of course, the month that we at the New York Post broke the first story from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop and October was also the time the month that tiny bubble linsky, the navy veteran and former business partner of Hunter Biden came forward publicly to say that Joe Biden was involved in his family's influence peddling scheme that Joe Biden was the big guy who was slated to get 10% of one of the Chinese deals and that Tony bubba linsky himself had met twice with Joe Biden to discuss these deals. So
Arizona Senate Candidate Blake Masters Responds to Mark Kelly Ad
"To play a tape here and add here. Cut 12. We played this in the last hour. I want you to respond to it Blake, because you're going to have to be responding to a lot of Mark Kelly stuff. Now, Mark Kelly has what $35 million cash on hand? At least. An extraordinary amount of hard money. That doesn't count super PACS or C four money. This is just in hard money. He is putting one after the ad after the other after the other on local television. This is Mark Kelly, who I think this is a very good advertisement. I really do. He's very good at lying and deceiving people where he says, I'm going to take on my own party, play cut 12. Arizona families are facing tough choices. Like how to fill the gas tank and the grocery cart. And things people count on can be hard to find. We can't afford to wait this out, so I'm pushing for solutions today, even if it means taking on my own party. Like bringing down gas prices by allowing more domestic oil production. Temporarily ending the gas tax and cutting red tape to restock shells faster. I'm Mark Kelly and I prove this message because I'll do whatever it takes to lower costs now. Blake? He's just a liar. Like, you know, nicely produced ad Merc, but he means none of it. Yes. He'll do whatever it takes to lower costs for Arizona families. Dude, you've been in office for almost two years. And all he's done is vote almost in lockstep literally, like 97 98% in lockstep with the Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, pro inflation, open borders agenda. He's voted for all the trillions of every piece of spending. Every piece of spending. He was chomping at the bit to vote for build back better. 3 trillion in spending when we already had inflation. Mark Kelly, he's not just a do nothing senator. He's an enabler
Pat Toomey: Joe Manchin Was Taken to the Cleaners
"Joe Manchin who, as you know, last week, finally yielded to the pressure of the Democrats, he caved to Chuck Schumer, and has agreed on another massive spending bill. He made the rounds yesterday on all the Sunday talk shows. Trying to explain his position now, it's a tough one to explain. And some of them, some of his colleagues aren't buying it, for example, senator pat toomey. He's Republican for Pennsylvania, as you know. He criticized this new climate healthcare tax package that senator Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer unveiled last week after Joe Manchin decided, well, maybe I do like spending money after all. In an interview with face the nation, to me suggested that mansion was taken to the cleaners. In this inflation reduction act, now you remember that the very reason that Joe Manchin did not support the build back better program last year was because he said that he was afraid that additional federal spending would fuel inflation, which it will. We know that we've seen it. That's why we are where we are today because of the trillions of dollars in the name of COVID that Joe Biden and our federal government has spent. So you would think that Joe Manchin had learned from
The Schumer-Manchin Tax Increase on Everyone
"Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal this money has an editorial. The Schumer mansion tax increase on everyone. Majority leader Chuck Schumer wants a Senate vote on his partisan tax deal with Joe Manchin as early as this week. And no wonder he wants to rush it through. The more Americans learn about it and what's in this tax and spend behemoth, the more they will dislike it. Start with the author's central claim that the bill reduced the deficit and thus inflation. The pen Wharton budget model, which senator Manchin has been known to watch, examine the details of the shimmer and Manchin Bill and found it doesn't contain any net deficit reduction until 2027. Quote the impact on inflation is statistically indistinguishable from zero through 2031 says the Penn Wharton modelers. We don't agree with those who think deficit reduction leads in a straight line to lower inflation, but that's what the Democrats claim for their bill. If the first deficit reduction doesn't come for 5 years, where's the help on inflation today? The 200 and 327 billion in new taxes could slow inflation at the economy falls into recession. And that may be the quiet expectation the journal continues. The tax increases on business will discourage investment while the Federal Reserve is also raising business costs with higher interest rates. But tax policy should be working in the opposite direction to encourage investment when the fed is tightening in the economy as close to recession. Evidence is emerging that the new shimmer mansion 15% minimum tax on corporate book income is especially harmful to U.S. manufacturing firms. And analysis by Congress's joint committee on taxation, hardly a nest of supply ciders, found that 49.7% of the tax would hit U.S. manufacturers.
Did Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin Just Pull a Fast One?
"That we want to lead with today and it's very murky and very confusing, understandably. Is what is happening in Washington D.C.. It is the reconciliation Joe Manchin spending bill fight. Now this is something that is not getting, I think, the attention that it deserves. Joe Manchin is not a conservative. Now, Joe Manchin is someone that I think received way too much praise, and I put praise on him as well, but also said throughout many different corners and turns that the mansion agenda was always going to come to some point of negotiation and potentially sell out the entire country. And so there's this mass legislative debate happening right now in Washington, D.C.. And Joe Manchin has shocked the world saying that he has come to some sort of middle ground or negotiation with Chuck Schumer. Now the details of the bill are still pending, and Mitch McConnell has said that he has been betrayed and lied to. And my question to Mitch McConnell is, who do you think you're dealing with exactly? What do you think the Democrat party actually is? Who do you think the Democrat party really represents? You think they represent their voters? Or do you think the Democrat party represents their crony special interests? And the activists in the base of the Democrat party.
Joe Manchin Describes Negotiations With Chuck Schumer
"A West Virginia senator coal country is taxing his own constituents after he has already said you don't do a tax increase in the middle of a recession. Well, that's exactly what Joe Manchin has done. But maybe what he admitted to hoppy kercheval helps explain why. When we were working and negotiating, we started our staff started back way back in April. And first of all, nobody in the right mind after I have been ostracized for how long and victimized, if you will, because I killed the DDB because the BBB was just the I think about the offer our economy is a bad deal for our country and to change the trajectory. We are as people. So I was totally opposed to that in America kept saying, build back better, build back better, smaller. There's no such thing as a build back better. This is truly going to be around inflation reduction. So what we did, we started talking start negotiating in this and that everything else. And the bill that we had there were some things in that bill that we were negotiating up until when the 9.1% came out, there were some things in the bill that I was concerned about that could be looked to be on to be inflationary inflammatory. So I told you more on Thursday as a chuck. I want to wait. I'm not satisfied with the way some of the things we have, then we better wait and see what this inflation figures are for the month of July because everyone was saying, it's going to go down, go down, go down. I've been hearing that since it was 6% and one to 8% and went to 9.1, 9.1. So I told my staff after the instruct got mad, and he said, well, you're walking. You're not going to do this and that, not your chuck. I'm not walking away from anything. I'm just being very cautious. The people must Virginia can't at Ford, higher prices. They can't afford higher gasoline prices. So what changed? For energy prices. So I said, I told my staff to start scrubbing it.

And you're remembering that 81 team that kind of really got things wrong with dialog. Well, I'm just hopeful that the young men that are playing the day are a lot nicer and better guys and the crew I was playing with. That's true. Chuck chuck will tell you, that was a nasty, tough group now. So, but I love them all. It was a ball and I guess chuck today right here on the 14th of September. Our 13th of September, 1981, 40 years ago today we beat Nebraska ten to 7 in Kenneth stadium, right? Yep. Yeah. That 81 group man those guys up front were the craziest wildest son of a guns. I mean, they would beat up the sky team, coach brazier or D coordinator would have to stop practice every 5 plays and beg us beg the guys not to beat up the scout team.

I'll never forget sitting in the audience in one of our meeting rooms and bob bob got up and he was a captain. He got up and talked to the team and I said, man, who's this guy right here?

"I felt for a long time. 'cause you're someone who has a lot of insider knowledge and some very specific things to that you have a ton of potential to share more things with a world in all capacities too. I appreciate that man. Yeah i mean you guys see me struggle like last year a lot with yeah just with like Like health difficulties and seen. Yeah see me Like really low points. That kind of really sparked for me like man. How do i be how to create a more a positive environment for myself. How do i create a more intentional environment for myself. And how do i start doing the things that i really wanna be doing versus. Maybe just kind of like drifting through and not to say drifting every day. But like i'm the kind of person that will go super hard whatever's in front of me right it's like and that's like my core operating system right is like when i was a little kid. I was in super competitive sports like all through school. And then i saw school is like a competition so i'd like to be really competitive at school and college and then like fucking what's more competitive than like our job on wall street and work in like fucking twelve or fourteen hours a day where literally people competing against each other for money an information and things like that i like the highest level And then to like burn out right like burn out at that and then even when i can remove myself from that was like cool. I wanna use like my background for something. That's more so fulfilling for me. And i started traveling and working outside of the us and using my background. But then i found myself wanting to go to increasingly more. Dangerous countries considered parole yet. Did right but it's like i'll just go heart like that hard and whatever. I'm trying to be good at working hard enough cool. Let's go travel through europe like only hitchhiking and finding our places a camp and stuff like that. Cool that it's not that hard coolest go to turkey and lebanon. Let's go to the middle east and like see if that's harder and then fucking from there. It's like cool. Let's go to africa. And you know it's really great because you can have like i was able to have a big impact in what i was doing there and i really enjoyed the work but i kept pushing myself into these increasingly more dangerous situations to where i was in south sudan. Not taking care of myself. Weighed like one hundred and forty pounds. Like i'm sure not eating or doing anything good for myself and then you just keep pushing you know. I'm having like learn how to learn about landmines and having weekly security briefings from like militia groups and like she's in the countryside of south sudan where there was like a civil war seven days ago. I was in the country seven days after the end of the civil war. You know working to like we're all working for it. I really believe in but it's just innately. My operating system just keeps pushing harder and harder so for me just needing to dial that back. That's funny did people meet. You probably think your chil- your fucking savvy. Chuck's casual do is like no chuck's out of his fucking mind. Total immunity to the cane. Palacio de was hard going here. I'm winning the malaria lottery. Landmines fucking crazy and then it's like i'm fucking. I'm like upset with myself because where. I got malaria. It's like i had the option to stay in like a nice hotel. Where like there wouldn't be a million mosquitos. What i'm like fucking wasn't enough for you know we're going to stay where all the local people stay in like just fucking million mosquitoes that i'm you know. I'm not not a mosquito resistant. I have not skied of fucking on malaria and had all kinds of you probably like seven malaysia. Like seven you gave you the super team biting right says like we all have some core operating system and it's like for me as recognising. You know that that that was part of it and cool. So how do i like. Dial that back in and be like a healthier me which you're talking about some of the changes. You've seen me make taking that innate thing that you have and focusing on things that are positive and how do you. How do you have help you and not kill you. Yeah right because again you can even then put into work and it's like right. We're we're looking at like you guys talk about like cafe opportunities and stuff like that and things that come up and like again if it's cool. Let's just do it. let's just go. let's do it and let's just push but it's like that's not healthy. Every book is start with eggs everyday. Yeah it is. It's like building in those hab bagel and cream. It used to be so cream cheese for breakfast at three. Yeah no breakfast nolan. it's no water. No water just coffee. And now i have like built a healthier eating style absolutely but the for me i just noticed i have to like i have to find ways for those habits to be built into my day else like everybody i think right. It's like you know a lot of people. I did like like health. Wellness challenge at the beginning of this beginning of this year. And yeah right. It's like most people last like seven to ten days or you can do things that are out of your normal normal routine. And that's what i found with myself but the things that really stuck where things that kind of like i do anyway like like i take a shower everyday so like one of the challenges was like a cold shower like increasing variety puts like cool. I can do that one. Because i show fifty degrees but like i take a shower every day. So it's easy for me to do that. The other ones. it's not a new routine. It's a modification of an existing pattern out. You're not like creating something new but it's like if you really want to be intentional about what you're doing and actually change things you have to turn them into habits and make time for them into that brushing your teeth. Kind of vibe. Yeah totally that's awesome. Did water pick rod. You look awesome. Thanks look great. You look like a train wreck. Six months ago bad. I felt that i was like fuck is working. Okay now you've been working on it putting in more work now than i've ever seen you put in for yourself. Yeah you've always put it in other places but for yourself. It's it shows two things you gotta turn on jumper to prove it yet on the court. Yeah yeah totally. Try swimming in the ocean surf and more. Yeah you and jen. Both were getting the ocean together Yeah yeah because even like outside of work stuff like we've had a rough couple of years Like i've got a daughter that just turned two but then like from when she was born until like a year later jin had postpartum depression and anxiety and that was really hard for her and then for me to support her and see her going through. That is really hard so yeah definitely some rough everybody has rough patches right so in rough things to deal with in life so this is kind of like how you think about them. Respond to them. And i'm trying to respond to them in a more positive way than i did in the past you are you can tell you. I think that's pretty cool today by your domain yet. Or what i do as why i like to see if they got the i domain also one domain to rule them all. Yeah because yeah. Because i was looking at your website. Real correspondent dot com.

I. Don't hate it. I mean there's. An aspect fiction that can be escapist, and there is an aspect of fiction which is the opposite which brings you closer to the type of thing you're trying to keep, and then there's a really. Almost masterful form, and it's something that genre is very good at. When, in the right hands is something that feels escapist, but it's really talking about the exact thing. You're trying to escape from so somehow giving you. Contrary both of those things at the same time, and that's really the I think the maximum power fiction is to. Both give you entertainment, but then Austin make you think and feel things at the same time. Yeah, I like that. Do you have a book that you remember? That was like a large comfort to you and certain time. Comfort Comfort to me. I mean that could that could be. It just gave me an escape from something horrible. I read before I was really reading books I was reading. Comic Strips Comic books by the I was reading Bloom County in Calvin and Hobbes and farce on those were my earliest escape. 'cause they were sort of really absurd and deranged in a wonderful way, but I also feel with something like Calvin and Hobbes county. And far really all of them. There were some sort of deep squarely truths buried in there. They were they were not. Young, Calvin and Hobbes especially sometimes really stared down the barrel of like sure he's a kid imagining all kinds of in saint stock, but. There's some there's some rich. Loam soil kind of going on in strips so. Definitely, those were things that were comforting in escapist to me, but that even looking back now you're like Oh. There was a lot going on. Those. Three panels than you imagined. Yeah I used to. My Dad gave me he had this far side and Calvin Hobbs then it was. A recently tried to. Had A couple books stored away. I tried to get my kids into one of them like that. Yeah I don't know. Hasn't gone there yet I I I really liked him, but I really liked them especially, because like my dad gave them to me and it was like a shared. Shared thing what about a book that has afflicted you in that way? That's kind of brought something baron you that that. You wouldn't. saw otherwise, maybe. Looking at upsetting. Disturb the comfortable. Yeah, yeah, like Oh man. Didn't I hadn't thought about that and I'd probably need to. Yes the early works poppy bright. Pretty fantastic. There's a novel.

"Chuck one thing that that one of the big reasons that feral children has really kind of kept the interest of science over the years especially starting in about the eighteenth century on is that they provide this the idea that they provide a window into human nature right there like a natural laboratory nobody's gonna say Hey give that kid away from its parents it's it's one and a half years old now throw it out into the forest and we'll come back and get in twelve years and see what happens with it yeah you do you just can't do that even back in the eighteenth century they would have done something like that it was just too unethical right yeah so the idea that there are children that this actually happened to through you know no scientists fault there's they can be studied and they could answer conceivably some questions and some of the questions are things like language acquisition like to do we go through it what's called a critical period where we either learn language or we don't and if we don't then we and we missed that window will never be able to learn language even a native language let alone a second language like you and me are having trouble with these days and then another is well basically any any way that they differ from a normal kid like their behaviors there the way they carry themselves all the stuff you could say this clearly stands for nature or nurture stay up that's right when these kids are out at least the ones with the animals they become as much like these animals and sometimes even physically as as they can they are a lot of times like I've been the dog boy would bark there's another dog girl that will talk about later she would bark somewhat chirp like birds sometimes they will run on all fours like a dog or clean themselves like a cat and they would eat raw meat and sleep on the floor because of the way that like you know going on all fours their bodies would actually change in a lot of cases like their knees would become just super tough from from running around on their knees or the thirtieth would become sharper meeting bones like an animal so sometimes they were super fast sometimes they might and a lot of the stuff is anecdotal but you've heard stories about them developing even like keener senses of smell that their animals that they live with half which is amazing yeah there's a kid named John the lease who is five in liege Belgium which is why it's called John of leech but he and his whole village moved to the woods because of war was taking place and once the war subsided they move back to their village John stayed and over time he became like a feral child and he was known to be able to root out like like truffles and stuff from the bases of trees just with his nose again it's anecdotal but it's a pretty good story yeah and I mean some of them could climb trees like an animal or sleep in a tree some could run on all fours faster than their counterparts could run on two legs so this really remarkable stories over time that I've been collected but again the problem is this these are a lot of these stories like John believes the story comes from the sixteen twenties yeah the so there are some modern ones but there's plenty of ones that that came between this the eighteenth century the seventeenth century and like the the nineteenth century or even early twentieth century and the stories are almost invariably so fantastic that they they defy belief yeah right especially if you're a scientist you start hearing about these things like so with the kid could out run a human but on all fours that that that doesn't make any sense is just basically not possible and if you there were enough people who were eyewitnesses to this any documented it independently that maybe it would get some credence so there's this whole problem here where feral children the stories are so fantastic that science wants to believe it but they don't know what to believe and it does turn out that there's actually been plenty of of cases of fraud over the years where I mean somebody said Hey I think the best way to get famous is to make up a feral child story so I'm going to do that yeah and one due to for sure did that Mr J. A. L. sing in the nineteen twenties found two young girls a toddler eighteen months old and an eight year old in India and claim they were raised by wolves name them Amala income Allah and said they prefer raw meat they walk on all fours they held the moon I can't get them to walk upright or speak you know like a human being would speak about say speak English but it was India sure and they had books written about him and it was sort of a a big media sensation until people started poking around and said well these girls are real but you know what they weren't raised by wolves at all and they actually had developmental and birth defects and he would eventually admit that and then we start learning that in a lot of these cases although not all a lot of these cases are kids with autism or or other developmental birth defects that they just maybe at the time didn't know how to deal with us or how to categorize or just would straight up lie about yes there's there's system this line in here that says that that the investigation into feral children's kinda revealed that you could also call feral children stories stories of amazing survival of attempted infanticide basically yeah that that accounts in in some people's minds in this is not a new idea going back a couple hundred years some people said you know what I think I think all of the stories of feral children are probably true but they weren't really raised by wolves are they weren't necessarily raised by wolves or they had an adoptive wolf like behavior they were kids who had cognitive impairments similar intellectual disabilities and who had been left to die even fend for themselves in the woods by their parents had grown wild and then we're we somebody came across some five or ten years later and mistook them for a wolf boy or an ostrich boy wolf girl or whatever animal you want to call it Lhasa apso man some people think that accounts for basically all stories of all of the older stories of feral children I think that's definitely debatable but that's one one camp yeah here's another case make sure the wolf girl nineteen ninety seven Monique Moesha the phone esca you know she's not telling she actually published her memoirs about the Holocaust called me Matia colon and the more of the Holocaust years basically you mean her memoirs this modus he said the the **** killed her parents and roses when she was seven she set off on her own through Europe ended up in the Ukraine and then the parables brought her and and she lived with them for years publish the story it was a big sensation and like I said this was in the nineties turns out she made it all up which was I mean disappointing and that she could have been a real good case study and ended up just lying about it all yes she said that she told the Belgian press that her her she had made it up but that her story was her way of coping with what it happened to her in reality like her parents had been killed during World War two but her grandfather racer and by all accounts he was not a walls at all just a dude with a beard yeah there's another famous case it's not necessarily fraud but just isn't very well documented a woman named marina Chapman who supposedly was left in the woods after kidnapping that went bad and was raised by monkeys and eventually became a housewife in in England and published her story with the help of her daughter I think again in the nineties the nineties must've been super hot for feral children memoirs I guess there's probably some stupid Jerry Springer or something I'll bet I'll bet it was the people were you know it was his influence the spring or influence yeah should we talk about to take a break or talk about Peter the wild boy first I think he deserves his due before the break alright we'll talk about Peter the wild boys and this was a true one because there are few cases which are verified this is the summer of seventeen twenty five in the forest of hertz Wald near Hamel in northern Germany and which we know has no bodies of water near it will handle hot he was about twelve years old walked on all fours fed on grass he would run up trees he could not speak the language and then he became here to known as the wild boy of ham on in achieve such fame at the time after he went to the house of correction for a little while the the king the Duke of Hanover and king of the U. K. said George said you know bring him to me basically this is they tried him out there like a like a spectacle essentially dress them up in a little boy's outfit sitting down at a table and of course she acts like an animal and then George is like you know taken away he discussed me right so he he wasn't it wasn't like put him back in the woods once he was brought to court he was under the king's care and he was at it they attempted to tutor him totally could not speak German he couldn't he couldn't speak any language he just basically grunted right but he was basically under the royal largess after that point they baptized him they dress them up they clean them up they tried everything they could to teach him but eventually they were like this this kid can't be taught we we don't know what we're doing we can't get through on so let's send them over to London apparently they'd heard about him in London because I mean you noticed that the the Duke of Hanover in Germany was also the same person who is the king of the United Kingdom then does seem odd to you no okay well at any rate had a connection to London so London heard about Peter the wild boy and they went crazy from there like send them over here if you guys are sick of them so Peter the wild boy made his way over to London and became like a sensation but basically had like the same experience there everybody wanted to be around them they saw what he was actually like they're like okay I don't want to be around this kid any longer because he's grossing me out so well yet except for the princess of Wales Caroline said I want him that might give him to me and so they did and and she persuaded the king to allow Peter to move into her place in the west end and he was basically like a pet for her he would still insist on sleeping on the floor they would dress them up again in his little green and red suit every day like little lord Fauntleroy still tried to tutor him baptized them taught him the manners of the day they taught him to bow and to kiss the hands of the ladies in the court in he was a sensation there for a while in was the talk of the town and they even painted a very famous painting of him and put it on the king's grand staircase at Kensington palace yeah so again though he kind of full I guess lost its luster as far as the courtiers were concerned and he was sent off to live on.
"chuck " Discussed on Thoroughbred Racing Radio Network
"You Like you said the the the people did a good job and they did a good obviously did a good job Alexandrina horses and I know for a fact that there are taking a closer look. They're they're. They're being much more vigilant about who's allowed to run WHO's not allowed to run But by the same token they got lucky in that there wasn't a single horse that had something maybe a hairline airline fractured. That just is not going to be picked up. I mean there's a famous horse. The few years ago they'd want a classic race that the assistant instant of the exercise rider had been telling the trainer. You know she just doesn't quite feel hundred percent and the source was sent to two biggest clinics in America and they couldn't find anything wrong with her and they wound up running the horse again because she was given a clean bill of health and she said she's not lame she just she just you know she. She's ninety five percent and a horse. That's that's above that level. It should be a hundred percent and they ran the horse and the Horse got beat at one two nine and came out of the race with a with a fracture fracture of a pastor in which is a tough tough area to to actually a diagnosis. So it just shows you that even when my. Here's here's one of the most valuable horses in America that they sent to the two biggest clinics in America looking for an issue and they still. I couldn't find it so to ask an examining veterinarian. who gets maybe a two minute? Look at a horse and two minutes is a lot it's it's it's going to be the things are always going to slip through. And that's the unfortunate part. Is that you know. It takes a long time to x-ray horse it takes a long time to scan them. It's not as though you can do that in five minutes if you have a hundred horses racing racing one day of course I guess nowadays. We barely one hundred horse racing but say an eighty horses racing the day to do x rays. Scans on eighty horses would take a week. And that's just for one card and that's if they worked all day doing it and it's it's a it's great when they have no no issues but as seen by the DEL. Mar The SANITA to Delmar back to Santa Anita issue where you have virtually the same horses verses the same horseman And the same protocols and one track was able to get through without any fatalities in the afternoon noon and the other track isn't so it just goes to show you at some point. It's not just what they're doing. It's it's just a some of the underlying issues that we can't measure Attract safety we can't put stick a thermometer in and say okay. Track is a a little safer. Today are a little less safe today. Because they're outside in dirt in and it's all the factors that are involved and and it's constant. It's a constant change. It's an etch a sketch on a on a daily basis the Chuck Chuck Simon with us and the first of of what will be ongoing conversations and we want questions to answer and want people to understand every aspect that that we can broach and today we wanted to start with trainers. We got a couple of business issues the then I wanted to move toward horse management management. which is what we're touching on? We've got about five minutes. Chuck Chuck explain and I can always do it with Dr all day in terms of of pre race and and whether it's a practitioner racetrack practitioner or or a regulatory vet state pet. But I explain the shed row process and on a daily basis and on a race day you know how the how a trainer and the groom and and the form and how they interact and how they're monitoring horse and the if there is potential That the horse may need scratch and and you know separately as part of this. We should also talk about having to deal with the racing office and explain to them. WanNa take a horse out. Honestly Steve We. We should save. Save that for next week is it's it's it's bigger than five minutes. Yeah a lot a lot bigger. What would I do want people to do is ask questions and get a hold of Steve Lever even us on twitter facebook or whatever and it's hard for me to answer a question on twitter or even make a point because you have a a limited space and even sometimes writing it? It just doesn't come out you can't explain how quite quite as much but but There's so many things that are just so misunderstood in listen. Not everyone's going to agree with everything I say they might say. Oh you know what. You're you're biased. You're training 'cause I hear that all the time and you know you you're biased towards horsemen and horseman wasn't the most horsemen hate. Each other business except accepted ever. Is there like when a guy goes on a streak and he wins. Eleven out of thirteen. You guys aren't complaining. Nearly as much as the trainers Are Complaining you guys. Don't see it you don't see it but you any any guy any person in contract management. That'll tell you the truth. And when there is a guy or two guys and their win and everything how many people complain they call up. They send emails they bitched only complain. It happens believe me. This is not like one. Big Happy Family is a cutthroat business. GotTa stab each each other in the back that to to get horses and to You know to to money business anytime. There's there's monning money involved called and it's a competitive business too. I mean there's eagles involved the amazing eagles I try to tell guys and listen. You're ain't nobody. A Horse trainer. The biggest horse trainer in America outside of Baffert. Nobody's getting recognized in the mall. You know the the guy. Who's the eleventh man? On the heat. He walks in the center a mall and he gets four hundred people chasing him right. I mean that's just you know. Remember the the you know. Earn a sport that we're Athletes the horses are the athletes. If you if you brought your five climate to the mall. He'd get that he'd he'd get he'd get mobbed too but the the trainer you know we're just registered trainers there's and most jockeys through this little people you know I mean there's not a whole lot of the jockeys aren't going to be able to go to too many places and be recognized. This isn't nineteen fifty fifty anymore. I know we we got to say. Hey you know we're not exactly high high profile but the fact that a matter is that that they're all all everything that you guys complain about twitter regarding trainers and former versus. There's nobody to complaints. Listen I I I deal with a lot of trainers now and nobody complains more than trainers they complain about everything. To brand of shavings. I Sell One guy tells me this one's great the other guy tells me others great and and you can't switch them so like half. The people like one thing half the people like the other thing but Believe me there's much more complaining about About those those the magicians than people really really understand. But as part of that one thing that you can make this a Saint Chuck Simon with us as we talk industry issues and we're gonNA broaches as many as people wanNA move. Bring up out of curiosity the you have a snapshot answer because people ask why. Why is there not more war Reporting a of Potential issues that that people are aware of Observing or otherwise. Why they I think the general public thinks that there's a code of silence on the backstretch stretch? Honestly I think people less me questions. I answer them but the you know we have. Virtually we know unbiased media by unbiased I mean people that aren't working for the track Those are PR people are not. They're not actual. You know I mean I mean. I'm not criticizing horsemen horsemen shock. I mean you know why people think that at some point horsemen would get frustrated or disgusted with with people that that that that others that the public seems to Think are are are taking it edge and the thing is what he wants Ado beat them up. I mean what can we do. We complain you complain to management. Maybe people you know complained to the commission but in the end like and what what what could what could what recourse is there. I mean you know we we could like I. I don't know it's hard it's hard it's hard to really You know it's like saying like you know. The Guy robbed a convenience store and you were in the back well. Why didn't you stop it? I mean we're not police you know we're not regulators and we're not track management and you're taking care of your or that's remember one thing thing that when I complain about the guy in the bar next door the first thing the guy in bar next door is going to tell the management when they say something. He's just jealous. Mind that sometimes it is. Sometimes that's the case jock. This was a good start and We'll we'll hit more. We'll hit every area that we can think of frontside backside The the key is really a couple of different things. The best bedding product at the best price and you know essentially doing the right thing being a good steward in whatever area of the sports you participate chuck is on twitter of course as cannon Shell and we're back tomorrow we'll do another hour this and then we'll start to get into a weekly routine. I want to thank shook mcgahey. Always a treat Andy Sterling Michael McCarthy.
