Well, don't worry. You're not gonna have to pay taxes if you make less than 400,000 year. Well, Fitty Cent and Ah, Ice Cube probably make something like $500 million a year, every 15 minutes, actually. Ah, And so they don't want Don't pay that kind of taxes, and I'm with them, you know? Ah, the one thing that they never never never explain properly to people when they're coming after Donald Trump because they say he only paid $720 a year in taxes. And he's not paying his fair share of blah, blah, blah, blah. They never point out that there is no fair share. There's no such thing as a fair share about fair share that that's Chuck and jive has been put forth by a bunch of socialists who want to keep taking your money and they get the The people that have nothing. They have no skin in the game. No vested interest in anything. Just want free stuff. They get them on their side. The dead. Guy's not paying his fair share. So I'm not gonna get my food stamps and feed us get over there and pay his fair share. That's basically what's going on out there. And there's been no concerted education campaign on the part of the Republican Party. Teo make people understand and realize that that's that's not good. You don't want that. Now. Donald Trump's being vilified now is being a demon, an evil because he doesn't want low income housing in neighborhoods. You got rid of that? Ah, he's been saying on the campaign trail. It's wonderful. You got rid of that. Public housing in suburban neighborhoods, and they're painting the picture that he's the bad guy because there's no crime associated with Low income housing is there is There is no that doesn't mean that people that live there are bad. It's just that in low income housing a lot of people that are doing criminal things that they're selling drugs and running around through the projects at night. It's always been like that. At the risk of sounding stereotypical. It's stereotypical it really is. And anybody with a brain knows that now they'll try and say that that you just say that because you're racist, No. People say that because they don't want some type of a project in there really nice suburban neighborhood. You're protecting white people know we're protecting middle class people. See, there's the realist you a hand. I knew I'd get to it. Eventually. It's the middle class. That's what they're trying to do They being the socialist they want to crush the middle class they have to. They can't have the control and the power that they need to run every aspect of your life without crushing the middle class. That's what this is about. You don't want a middle class they want really high appear oligarchs. Controllers. The political pseudo royalty and then on the bottom are the people that get what they determined they think you need. That means what's the state of new Green deal? They don't think you should ever in a million years. Have a gas guzzler car. Know what we're getting rid of that that you got Biden out there, Saying what I figure what the year is Releases by Dad out of the year. We're going to have no more fossil fuels. We're gonna be on soul, wind and solar power. Though there will be no more fossil fuel. That sounds great on the campaign trail, But the second is their plane through the air. So there will be some fossil fuels will just be that the oligarchs have control of them and their kids in school. Don't learn what your kid to school. Their kids will learn real math, real chemistry, really microbiology. Things like that. Your kids know your kids are going to be nothing more than well, peons. That's what they're going for. They the Democrat Socialist Party, they said plainly. But the vast majority of people either don't understand it or think it's a good thing or want to move it along because they think it's helping people. It's absurd. Again when you see a Biden sign on somebody's lawn. That statement, isn't it? They're voting for buying that statement. They're dumb as a frickin stone. Hey, I'm stupid. I'm put the sign out front to prove it. I'm boarding against the American Republic. I'm voting for a socialist. Dumb down America for Commodore. Yeah, That's what they're saying. They're arrogant, their stupidity. They don't know They don't know it. For the most part. They really don't. They're arrogant in their stupidity now. What I'm talking about. Here is if you ever heard of the American Economic Association, these guys hold sway on things. These guys are the people that are called in for advice. Advice they're calling. We need advice on how to run the economy, Democrat Socialist say and they make all these guys. Yeah, And these guys happen to be straight up. Democrats Socialists, no Republican. Well, we'll have one or two Republicans that, according to study the impacts conservative economists because publication and highly ranking journals is a prerequisite to tenure that's in college. That means I can't get fired. I could be a stupid as I want Challenge. I can courage. People who go out burned down buildings in city streets and I won't go and do it with him, And I'm not going to get fired. That's what 10 years in 2020. So this American Economic Association journals are three of the top 10 and five of the top 20 the college fix reached out to Lang, Bert. Who explained the weight of his research. He said that the high ranks in the end the Professor Professor Orient Wow, man, never heard of that word before. Demand publications and the large number of publications by Democrats give them higher levels of jobs in policy. Jobs in policy. I just explained that these are the guys that reach out to Hey, we need some economic advice and we wanted a policy for our our state. Can you come in and present and we'll adopt everything you say? Because we're Democrat Socialist, too. Economics is important because it impacts policymaking, says Lambert. The one part of control of the A A, which is Democratic control is a strength strategic pivot by which the single party can control huge personal our personnel rather and get picked for jobs in government. This is huge implications for which party gets more influenced day today. Wow. Who don't know him that well, you do now. So.

She's a painter So she basically could come in to with me everywhere. So we would. Be Out of play shows wherever, and then like extended for awaken, and we'll be there on holiday and do a writing Jen's Don exhibitions around the world because we've been in a place for X. amount of time just like oh I can I can do this. So that's great. Yeah, mutually beneficial situation for us But yeah, I think now I get it I. Think now being a bit all Hemi kid I know how to to. US. Smarter. But now we come to us. Just. When you figured it out. And when we do get back on the right, it'll be too excited. So I went look off to myself. Go back to the bad habits. Honestly. It's just I've never really had an issue personally with drugs and alcohol and things like that or you know that taking over my life I'm pretty balanced person So Going into it, I just just wanted to have fun and it was it was just always going to be like that on. Because I think tour as well. Yeah. You work. Really hard. But it's also a celebration of you being in a space writing this music and then sharing it with people. So that's that's Super Fun, and like I think a lot of people need to step back and go again why you're doing this in a cycle is people came to see you enjoy it have if you don't like it, you might be in their own business. Yeah exactly. That exactly. Once. You did start going all over the world and spending time in different places Did that change your music? Did that? Did you know a playing show is on a bigger level but also just traveling and seeing places and having new experiences? Yeah. Definitely I think a lot of the places that I would play. It would be we would tour in the summer as well. So it would always a that. Kind of vibe where I live now anyway. So it was it was always kind of. Fun and exciting an outdoor so that that certain vibe for me and then it was just the amount of office that I was watching at based festivals had never heard of before and watching these crowds go nuts to music that I've never heard yet is there was definitely a lot happening musically fa May just just learning so much from his office But it didn't it didn't change massively musically me I. think the big thing would bay when I'm on stage and performing and what I want from the crowd so. I think writing. Writing Iran, like a bit more chills Song Bay stuff sounds great and it's nice living room. But when you're out on stage, you need to bring it. To life in different light, you know what? I mean you need to. You need to have a more energetic dancing version of of server. So I did learn that a lot and that's kind of where I guess. I'm going in the future with a second album is is is building into something a bit more energetic and vitally that's great man yes or are you the music you're looking at now? You're looking at it in a second album context. Yes. So the releases they see a just a what what they are on a big fan of if you're an honest and you announce an album, I want old music from you. I as as you debut album if it's part of the story that makes sense that's fine and that's that's what I did too with two or three of the songs had been released before and then the announcement of a single with the album are that was that. But there's been quite a few out of city like his the album and is like half the out ms I've heard it before. So I'm a big fan of like announcing an album. He's the first single and you go from this so yeah. Well to riding the second album And you know what better time to do it so I'm I'm just getting into it and we'll be releasing it next year and hopefully. Yeah. Yeah absolutely man I know that's that's such a great use of your time and it's cool that you're able to sort of take this time to to evolve that and I I. Guess I'm I'm wondering to you know so much of your music, the the actual lyrics you know it's you talk about love and loss and relationships, and that sort of thing, and I was thinking when I was coming to talk to you. Do. You think that will also change because that's the you know it's a fixation like it's something you clearly think about a lot but also your life has been changing right like, yes had a kid. Now we're in sort of this weird situation how tied to it? Is it to your own life I guess is what I'm asking. Yeah it's it's is a huge tie to what I sing about and what I write about to my life relationships and the most important thing in my life so that yeah, that love and Lawson and yearning and like old that's what between us is about and the is about all those different emotions who? You come to fear in love Lavas a human being So. Yeah. That's that hasn't changed that never will I guess I don't know it's just it Kinda just comes out like what does permission allows me and then that's a very personal. Story amazed as let's let's different things that will happen that'll that'll ride about. But yet it's always going to be about relationships for May And I think it's also it's really special because a lot of paper will message me and go all of that song out of his tough time or a break up with someone in that really made me feel something like this people can you know make up their own minds about it and have their own meanings to the songs? So that's why what does it mean to you? It's like well, it's a personal thing wasn't mean to you. So I liked that people can take that kind of universal Remaining of lava whatever it is kind of put it into a very personal context. I mean, and that's I. Think also part of good songwriting. I think that's one of the hardest things to do right is to take the personal and turn it into the universal read. Is that something you've figured out anything about over the years of how to you know how to take something very internal, very personal and make it relatable to a large number of people. Yeah I honestly I don't think about it that way I don't try and create something that's like a super personal and this like the way that I phrase it that will be that's the be. Just do it honestly it's not something that I strategize. Yeah. It's it's weird I mean when when when we're riding lyrics melodies a lot of the time, I want like a lot of people do they want us woods they'll just blah blah blah and the melody will just start to appear but then the like the phrasing of the nonsense that you'll singing, we'll start to make sense and then you'll start to they'll be this subject that comes up sir. I am a big fan of like you can't. It's off camera but I've got a lot of journals and things that I just riots not like dreams and things are just right words all like, Oh, just songs that I listen gentlemen Oh that's really that word is really not. So whatever I've got a whole bunch of interesting phrases and stuff like that. That that I drove around for shoal yet it's. Like a strategic this'll be Song I love that man I mean that's almost like a sample pack for ideas. lyrical splice. Man and I mean and that's another part of it too right. Is that you are very collaborative artist you. At this point it seems like you must really enjoy working with other vocalists and with with other people to sort of create a shared thing to right..

"Seem to be heading towards a period, reminiscent of the Jewish Babylonian exile where we Christians, and our beliefs will not be in the majority, and, in fact will increasingly be considered irrelevant and extreme. What if anything do you think could lead to a western Christian revival and turn the situation around? Well. The Christianity is true or it's false. Right. There's no that my whole point in this article. Can we believe in city journal, is that we've been sold the idea that religion may be helpful may be good for us. But it's not true that you can't defend it. And my argument was that argument in and of itself has not been made as not been sufficiently made. And there was a very, very powerful that religion Christianity is true. It may contain things that are not true, but it also, but it is basically a true, I would say the true religion and we have no reason to be talked out of it. So that's the argument. We have to start having, I think we should start doing this personally where we gather together and discuss our religion and talk about it in realistic terms. I think we should stop talking about it in what the philosopher Schopenhauer called what did he call it? Banal optimism. You know, everything is right? There's a reason everything happens for reason. God is everything's good. When you believe in God, that's not the way it is. Is it still the tragic world? It's still a tragic screwed up world where the where the good guys lose sometimes in the bad guys win. We believe that we believe that our moral sense, is talking to us of a life beyond life that, that, that, that life has spoken to us in matter that I Andrew and spoken in this body, even though I am not entirely this body. This is the language the bodies, the language that expresses me that God expressed himself in a body. Those are arguments that we can have and talk about, and we should put them forward. I think when thing that I would like to see Christians rethink for a minute, is how much of our, we frequently maneuvered into expressing Christianity, as what we don't like we don't like gays. We don't like out of wedlock, marriage. We don't like this. We don't like that. And for me so much of what Christianity is, is about the love and forgiveness with which we enter the world and how we. Transform the world in that love and that forgiveness because it is the love and forgiveness that God shows to us. And I think so much of that, that is positive is something we should be working muscle. We should be working on developing, as we argue if Christianity is true, then it's worth believing in whether the majority believes in it or not, it is it will never be extinguished because of its truth. We will be a remnant who believes but I think I'm actually more hopeful in that. I think the ideas opposed to Christianity are actually falling apart. Relativism postmodernism. They don't make sense. They don't hold together. Like we were talking about earlier in the show, only reality holds, together the Christian approach to life holds together. And I think I think that's going to be a very powerful weapon for us tool for us as we go forward, this has happened before as I've argued before, this is, you know, the, the Christianity seeming to be on the ropes has happened before, and it has always come back, because it describes reality accurately.

"Beautiful gift. It's a beautiful souvenir. And it may maybe may go up in value. I'm speaking Torrejon Salaam of national review melting pot or civil war, a brief cogent book great review in city journal. That's a very that's a great title melting pot or civil war. That's exactly exactly right. So his parents Ray Hans parents came from Bangladesh. And we're talking about this very important to you taught me something, it's a very important distinction. Not all immigrants contrary to what I had implied. Not all immigrants. From the end of the nineteenth century went to their own in closed communities in the United States. So what changed in the nineteen twenties? Well, what changed in the Nike twenty is is that when you put in place immigration restriction legislation. It really changed the landscape for the immigrants were already in the country. Faced less competition from new commerce, and so it was somewhat easier for them to climb the economic ladder. That's not to say that that restriction was motivated by purest motives in every case, but the upshot is that it gave some breathing room, particularly to those working class emigrants. So they could enter the American middle class and also their kids wound up living in the suburbs. They wound up forming these more integrated communities and embracing an American identity, they might still cling to some aspects of their older ethnic identities. But it was more symbolic rather than a lived experience that separated them from other American, and I think that that's a big important part of the story of why you wound up having this more unified, more cohesive American middle class culture in those years, then specifically that there were limitations on immigration. In other words that I want to know from. Summarizing your point accurately that is much more likely to ensure a melting pot then separation if there are restrictions on immigration is that correct summary. Yes, I do believe that having control having some limits as opposed to having an uncontrolled policy can make a big difference. It makes that melting pot more likely to happen that doesn't mean on saying we should go back to the policies of the nineteen twenties. But it does mean we need to be mindful of the context in which immigrants arrive in the US. Alright are writing in the context of racial divisions in which you have entity politics and identity politics extremism. It's going to be very different. Okay. That's so I was just going to say that's the second part of your title. You made the case on the melting pot. But your title is melting pot or civil war question, Mark. So the civil war comes when everybody has their own. Identities. Exactly when you have a situation in which you have people who are fighting over not just class differences, but also over ethnic differences. The danger is that you might get some kind of group that sees itself as a marginalized excluded underclass and that season ethnic dimension to that. And then you get demagogue politicians who are claiming that. Hey, wait, a second. The reason you're indisposition is because of these other people with their wealth and with their power. That's why you need to tear down the system. That's what I fear is going to happen in the years to come. You're going to get this kind of demagoguery today's identity politics will become even more extreme you'll get even more socialist politicians will embrace this kind of identity. Extremely so I the reason I asked you earlier about what language was in your home was I do not at all oppose. In fact, I'm four. Immigrants. Teaching their children the language that they came from. I think I know a number of languages, I think it's very important, and it's a gift to you. But what I what I want to ask you is clearly your parents raised an American who even if he loves or embraces or and is fluent in has been. Golly, language, and culture. You feel American your destiny is American your identity is American. So here is my sixty four thousand dollar question. Was it was it wasn't if I'll even put it that way, wasn't it. Mostly your parents attitude that formed Raihan Salaam as an American. I'm going to disagree with you there a bit by the way. I hope I hope you do know because oh, my I pray that America played a role in Americanizing, you I I don't want to rely on immigrants parents. But go ahead. Yep. I think my parents attitude certainly contributed to it. But I honestly think that another big factor was that I was not part of an enclave. That's number one. And number two. The economic context was really different. If you think about immigration in the nineteen hundreds it looked very different because there was a huge hunger for low skill low wage immigration, if you're looking at twenty eighteen we now have offshore we are going to have autonation you have a situation in folks, love limited skills, who can't speak the English language. They're going to have a much harder times in a more is knowledge based economy..

"Beck. This is the Glenn Beck program. Heather McDonald was on with us a couple of weeks ago, and I was running really late, and we ran out of time, and I was really bummed because she is she's an amazing amazing woman. She has the best selling book war on cops. She is also with the Manhattan institute, contributing editor for the city journal. She also has her roots in deconstruction Postmodernism. She's the author of the book the diversity delusion Heather MacDonald. Welcome back to the program. How are you? Well, thank you so much for having me on again, Glenn. It's a real pleasure to talk to you. So we were just getting into some good conversation, and we had to cut our conversation short last time. Let me let me pick it up because you've you've written some really fascinating things about Brett Cavanaugh. Bring me up to speed and the audience up to speed on on on. What are your thoughts are on this whole mess? Well, so far, Glenn the conservative response has been a completely legitimate one. Which is to say that the timing of the charges brought against Cavanaugh are completely spurious shows that this is simply intended to scuttle the nomination as opposed to getting to the truth. There's also been legitimate questions about the credibility of his accuser. Professor Ford pointing out that the. She has. For somebody who's allegedly traumatized by this allegedly searing event. She can't even remember what year it occurred where the house was that this party was where she was allegedly assaulted by cavenaugh, those are very legitimate points to make. But I think it ducks. A more fundamental question. Which is that even if it were true what she alleged should that outweigh Kavanagh's clear record in public service and the three and a half decades of life in which his participated in the public sphere. And I argue that it shouldn't. And again, we I'm just putting aside for a moment all the questions of credibility. I think what we're seeing here is the fruition of the feminist mentality. That reverses the order of the realm of public action public ideas, a civilization that is seen as to mail, and and putting that below issues of arrows and and personal involvement as far as I'm concerned. Let's let's take this out of the current. Cavenaugh situation and imagine a hypothetical from a liberal perspective. One of the most liberal lions of the supreme court was William Brennan, he massively expanded the welfare state the fences for criminal defendants if he had as a seventeen year old engaged in some boorish, adolescent, aggressive alcohol fueled male behavior would a liberal really say that that one unprecedented. An unrelated incident should undercut a lifetime of of contributions to the liberal exposition of the constitution. And I would imagine they would say that it shouldn't. So. So Heather, isn't it heavenly already decided this as a society though, because we we've already decided that if you are if you are tried and convicted of even murder. Your records are sealed because as long as you don't repeat it what you do under eighteen doesn't it should not be held against you for the rest of your life. So I'm not saying that he's innocent or guilty. I have no idea. I don't know why we're even discussing it with the with the amount of evidence that we have. But. Even if he is guilty of this societal laws. Come from us society has already said, look if you're under age, we're not going to hold that against you as long as you've reformed. Well, you know, there's some if you've committed murder, I think that they you are going to be tried as an adult. But if you're clearly right, Glenn, we do have different standards for juveniles, and we are not obviously obeying the law here. You know, the the Senate Judiciary committee is twisting itself into not to try and accommodate these last minute accusations that are are being brought forward clearly torpedo. But but even even if that were not the case if juvenile records were not sealed to me, it is simply preposterous to think that a one time incident as a seventeen year old. Of aggressive sexual behavior. Counts. More in the life of a public figure. A public intellectual who is involved in the world of ideas that that counts more than what his contributions have been as a federal judge. And certainly again, if we want to bring it back into a feminist perspective, which I don't think it's particularly relevant. But if we want to say that a public figures treatment of females should be influential in how we evaluate his public career. He has been a leader in the treatment of females as clerks. He's was the first judge to have an all female class of clerks. He's had a majority of clerks his female clerks have been unanimous and testifying to his character. That when you're when you're when you're a clerk for a judge. That's not an easy gig. You're it's fresher you're working together late at night. I mean, if you are a dirtbag, that's the kind of scenario where it comes out is it not, absolutely. You're working late nights. This is the very Demane where EROs comes into play. There's plenty of room for sexual harassment if not actual sexual involvement, and we have heard absolutely nothing. If there had been any hint of this would have come out. But but again Glen, you're you seem to be moving towards conceding that in some situations. This might be relevant. If it turned out, let's say that James Madison, one of our most important founding fathers who who was one of the prime architects of the theory of the separation of powers one of the most important contributors to the federalist papers understanding. How to try to restrain government power, which was the big accomplishment of the slow patient. Evolution of constitutional thinking in Europe. If it turned out that he was a skirt chaser that that he had padded the butts of his domestics again, I argue that is not relevant to his contributions to public life and to say that it is to to say that we should actually reconsider James Madison's contributions, your hypothetical, right? I don't. I don't agree. I do not agree that that that takes away from his accomplishments. However, we're looking at somebody in history, and I don't think we can have revisionist history. I mean, you know, okay. If that's who he was like Winston Churchill Winston Churchill was he good guy or bad guy. Well, if you lived in India, he was a really bad guy lived in Europe. He's a good guy. So which is he he's both. He's both we are both flawed and and great at times as human beings. So you just have to look at it on the balance. The if if if cavenaugh let's say. Cavanaugh has did this. I would look at this. As a something that happened in nineteen eighty two. And the next thing that I'd have to do is. Is there any evidence that he didn't learn from this? If he is still doing it if he was still doing it would matter, but there is no evidence not only at the two times. Now that they say because another one came out last night, the two times there, there doesn't seem to be any evidence at all. But it also happened thirty five years ago with nothing else. The guy has lived in in an exemplary exemplary life. Well, yeah. And I guess I'm taking a very absolute out their position. You're absolutely right. I mean, this this needs to be stated he has led an exemplary life. He has been a champion for women's rights. There is a part from this completely groundless charged that came out in the New Yorker, which all of the people that were allegedly at the party deny where he was engaged in the typical drunken boorish hookup culture of of sexual crawling, even so I just think that we are the feminists are trying to take our civilization down. So utah. Nine the realm of of ideas and public action, which has been male in the past and saying that the realm of EROs, which is a different realm, which drives men and women insane is the is the realm of cathodic desire that that and and women's sort of grudge matches about that should should have priority that that that were were reversing what I think is the order for how civilization goes forward. And if they win on this if they went on this the feminist war on what is perceived as male civilization is going to become all the more extreme. So Heather, I want you to go. We're gonna take a quick break. And then when when you come back, I want you to go in and and talk about something that I read in one of your articles. I think in the city journal about how this event if it did indeed happen this event. This kind of thing is actually. Really?

"Fourth. This is the Glenn Beck program. Heather McDonald was on with us a couple of weeks ago, and I was running really late, and we ran out of time, and I was really bummed because she is she's an amazing amazing woman. She has the best selling book war on cops. She is also with the Manhattan institute, contributing editor for the city journal. She also has her roots in deconstruction Postmodernism. She's the author of the book the diversity delusion Heather MacDonald. Welcome back to the program. How are you? Well, thank you so much for having me on again, Glenn. It's real pleasure to talk to you. So we were just getting into some good conversation, and we had to cut our conversation short last time. Let me let me pick it up because you've you've written some really fascinating things about Brett Cavanaugh. Bring me up to speed and the audience up to speed on on on. What are your thoughts are on this whole mess? Well, so far, Glenn the conservative response has been a completely legitimate one. Which is to say that the timing of the charges brought against cavenaugh are completely spurious shows that this is simply intended to scuttle the nomination as opposed to getting to the truth. There's also been legitimate questions about the credibility of his accuser. Professor Ford pointing out that the she has. For somebody who's allegedly traumatized by this allegedly searing event. She can't even remember what year it occurred where the house was that this party was where she was allegedly assaulted by cavenaugh, those are very legitimate points to make but I think it ducks a more fundamental question, which is that even if it were true what she alleged should that outweigh Kavanagh's clear record in public service and the three and a half decades of life in which his participated in the public sphere and argue that it shouldn't. And again, I'm just putting aside for a moment all the questions of credibility. I think what we're seeing here is the fruition of the feminist mentality. That reverses the order of the. Realm of public action public ideas, a civilization that is seen as to mail, and and putting that below issues of EROs and and personal involvement as far as I'm concerned. Let's let's take this out of the current cavenaugh situation. And imagine a hypothetical from a liberal perspective. One of the most liberal lions of the supreme court was William Brennan, he massively expanded the welfare state the fences for criminal defendants if he had as a seventeen year old engaged in some boorish, adolescent, aggressive alcohol fueled male behavior would a liberal really say that one unprecedented an unrepeatable incident should undercut. A lifetime of of contributions to the liberal exposition of the constitution. And I would imagine they would say that it shouldn't so sorta so Heather, isn't it haven't we already decided this as a society though, because we we've already decided that if you are if you are tried and convicted of even murder. Your records are sealed because as long as you don't repeat it what you do under eighteen doesn't it should not be held against you for the rest of your life. So I'm not saying that he's innocent or guilty. I have no idea. I don't know why we're even discussing it with the with the amount of evidence that we have. But. Even if he is guilty of this societal laws. Come from us society has already said, look if you're under age, we're not going to hold that against you as long as you've reformed. Well, you know, there's some if you've committed murder, I think that they are going to be tried as an adult. But if you're clearly right, Glenn, we do have different standards for juveniles. And we are not obviously obeying the law. You know, the the the Senate Judiciary committee is twisting itself into not to try and accommodate these last minute accusations that are are being brought forward clearly to torpedo. But but even even if that we're not the case if juvenile records were not sealed to me, it is simply preposterous to think that a one time incident as a seventeen year old.

He's was the first judge to have an all female class of clerks. He's had a majority of clerks his female clerks have been unanimous and testifying to his character that when you're when you're when you're a clerk for judge. That's not an easy gig. I mean, you're it's pressure. You're working together late at night. I mean, if you are a dirt bag. That's the kind of scenario where it comes out. Is it not absolutely? You're working late nights. This is the very Demane where EROs comes into play. There's plenty of room for sexual harassment if not actual sexual involvement, and we have heard absolutely nothing.
