Wallbuilders President Tim Barton Tells Us About John Witherspoon

"Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to Timothy Barton, president of wall builders dot com. You should check it out. Wall builders dot com. It is just a treasure of resources. But Tim, you're just giving us really important rare information. I've not heard most of this before, but you're talking about how the founders specifically John Witherspoon of New Jersey dealt with the issue of abortion. As you said, we tend to think of it as something fairly recent. Of course, it is no more recent than life or birth or death or recent. These are things that have existed since we have existed. So talk about Witherspoon because we cut you off in the last segment. Yeah, and let me actually add a little more context to John and Witherspoon, because John and Witherspoon as the president of Princeton, he personally trained more founding fathers than any other single individual and Princeton trained more founding fathers in any other university. So John Witherspoon had a direct influence on dozens and dozens and dozens of individuals that we would consider founding fathers. And this is important to know because he's imparting his philosophy into them and certainly you actually see a lot of his ideas coming out and things they did. But one of the lectures he gave while he was at Princeton dealt with the issue of parents over their children and specifically of the unborn child and parents. And one of the things he explained was, for example, this was in the era of the French Revolution, which the French revolutions, there were many of them, they lasted for a couple decades, but there was a lot of bloody deaths, a lot of conquering a lot of messiness in the French Revolution, but in the French Revolution, there was also a lot of secularization. We're under the French church. The French people had been oppressed and abused in many ways. And in America Christianity was very different than in many of these European nations because of the freedom that we gave and how in America Christianity was not the same level of coercive. It was over in Europe. And so John Witherspoon goes through and he explains that, for example, over in France, they're rejecting a lot of these basic biblical Christian notions. He says in France, they believe that parents own the children and actually he says really kind of Europe and the world, but he's specifically talking about France and then goes a little bigger, but what he says is there's people around the world that believe that they own their children. And they can sell them to somebody else's slave. They can sell them off to be indentured. They can give them in marriage, or if they don't want their children, they even can kill their children. And this is before they're born or at birth or even later, that parents are the property of the excuse me, children on the property of the parents. He then says, but in America, we believe it's very different. We believe there's a different role for parents and one of the things he explains is that in America we've denied the power of life and death over the child, we've denied that power to the parents, where the parents role is not to determine if the child lives or dies, but to raise them up and instruct them and nurture them and strengthen

The Energy Push Plays Into 'The Great Reset' Aims and Ambitions

"It. So the Biden spokeswoman karine Jean Pierre says that Biden is committed to do everything he possibly can to reduce screen greenhouse gas emissions and speed up and not slow down our transition to clean energy. However, but karine Jean Pierre should be asked, what is clean energy? What do you mean by that? Because natural gas has actually played a major role in lowering greenhouse carbon emissions over the last couple decades. We are closer to the Ames and the ambitions of the people that want to make the air cleaner allegedly and our environment safer, yet they don't want us to focus on natural gas. In fact, they're trying to stop the exploration of oil and natural gas. Why is it they're trying to prevent nuclear power? Why is it that they're trying to prevent other sort of sustainable long-term cheap energy sources? Is it all just about solar and wind? Play cut 100. But look, the president is committed to doing everything he can to address to reach his climate goals. Taking executive actions that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But at the very same time, we must speed up not slow down our transition to clean energy. So it's central planning, of course, but we must understand that the energy push plays directly into the great reset aims and

Former Rep. Dave Brat Agrees All Modern Democrats Are Radicals

"That. I'm sure you agree newt is one of the greatest political minds out there. You fought as a congressman. You want to seat you weren't supposed to win. But today's Democrat party, it's just radicals, isn't it Dave? Yeah. Yeah, and I think newt had the right solution. Our conference, right? People may not even know what that is. When all the Republicans get together once a week, we meet in conference. And our strategy back when I was there and I think it's been the strategy for a couple decades is you just let everyone run their own race. So you've got the entire national intelligence agencies, coupled up with big media. Now teamed up with big technology, all the donors are on the left. And a single congressman with a megaphone is supposed to compete against that one on infinity. And it doesn't work. And that's why we lose. We do not have a team voice. And so our speaker of the House needs to get a new contract that we all believe in that that hits over 51% that's newt's genius. And it's got to solve the problems of America. It's not just a win election. It's got to solve problems, getting rid of this, the 45 trillion in debt. Everybody knows what the problems are, right? The border and you're just chaos across the country right now. But we need to speak with one voice and we need a leader. Newt was a leader, and we need a leader who will speak with one voice and unite us. And even with that, it's an uphill fight against the press and all the forces I just mentioned, but that's what we got

GOP Senator Tim Scott Seeks to Block Controversial Proposed Bank Account Monitoring

"I saw senator Tim Scott make a little speech about this woman that the Biden administration once confirmed as a top ranking Treasury Department official. And he just seems like he's in a state of shock. The left is trying to defend this doomed nominee and she better be doomed. You can not have somebody in charge of the purse strings who wants to blow up the banking industry. And wants to nationalize wants to federalize banking. Yeah, that's just what I want. The government calling all the shots with my checking account. They're nuts. They're purposefully picking people who are who are so radical and bizarre. I mean, Sean wants you to hear a little bit. We have senator Tim Scott queued up, right? I want you, this is four minutes. Like, it's like four and a half minutes. I want you to hear the whole thing. Because she was also convicted of shoplifting 25 years ago. Now, you could make the case 25 years ago is a long time. Incidentally, that's funny how the left and the woke crowd and all the crazed activists on social media don't seem to mind if it's 25 years ago if it's something they don't approve of. Then you better cancel somebody over what they did 25 years ago. But when it's a Biden nominee to do something like, oh, I don't know. Control the purse strings of America's monetary system well, that was a long time ago she should be forgiven. In fact, they say, those are personal attacks. You're attacking her. I mean, I don't even know what she's Asian, right? I don't even know what her ethnicity is. She appears to be Asian. I'm sure there's the left is ramping up all their bigotry defenses for her, right? All these mean Republicans don't like her because she's Asian. They're bigots. They're just they're just racists and bigots. No, she's a radical kook who has no business, no business whatsoever in a responsible position of authority at the Treasury Department. So keep all that in mind. Bear in mind that she shoplifted a couple decades ago, so people are mocking her for that. There's the racist thing. There's the same, you're getting personal with her. These are personal attacks. Don't do personal texts. So listen to this reasoned, eloquent, short of every man approach that U.S. senator Tim Scott from South Carolina takes in addressing Biden's nominee. I want to be fair, and I will be fair. I won't be hyperbolic, but I will be Frank and honest. I can not think of a nominee more poorly suited to be the control of the currency based solely on your public positions, statements, and the weight of your writings. Than you are. Let me just quote you versus anybody else. On the Green New Deal champion, you propose taking economic and climate policy making from Congress and creating an unaccountable bureaucracy called the national investment authority. In a round table this year, this year, you push to make the NIA the dedicated institutional platform at the federal level for really being the kind of fighting muscle of the Green New Deal and fighting muscle of you know all of these other movements that pursuing environmental justice, social equality and so on. You're disdain for the financial services industry. In 2019 in the documentary, titled, I'll be kind, buttholes, a theory. You said the financial services industry in my view and I don't think I'm alone here is the quintessential butthole

"I have a special treat In we're going to have him on for every once in a while for the next number of weeks Steve hoffman who has a. He's got an entire set of credentials behind him in regards to being one of the founders of founders space and he's also a futurist and he's got a book that has come out. It's called the five horses. And i am totally fascinated by all of the different topics that are in this. This is packed. Full of stuff. And i just knew. I had to talk to steve about this. You go by captain half which is absolutely fun. I love that. So steve kerr one of the topics you touch on is brain computer interfaces and there's all kinds of different things we've talked about on the show in regards to brain computer interfaces. What is i'm going to ask you a double pronged question. What are the things that excite you about brain computer interfaces. And what are the things that scare you about them. Well let me start with the excitement so first of all brain computer interfaces are coming they are they work they are here today. You can actually buy very primitive ones on amazon. You could just go on there and purchase a brain computer interface. But also in the laboratory they are developing very sophisticated once and these brain computer. Interfaces are what. I call the force of mass connectivity so already seen the internet transform our lives i mean much more than anybody could have imagined couple decades ago it has just completely changed every business on the planet and everything we do now. The next big leap forward is mass. Cut negatively in that is when instead of holding a clunky phone and tapping on it with our fingers trying to get you know some you know communicate on this device or talking we will plug the internet directly into our brains. We will do this. Two ways one is. We can have chip like musk. Wants to embed right in through your skull and connecting with your brain tissue now. Most people are a little reluctant to do this. Even though musk says it'll be painless outpatient surgery however they are developing now also noninvasive interfaces. This means you could put on a little band around your head more even your glasses with little electrodes in there that can read your brainwaves. Now this may sound like science fiction but in the lap they are doing this. A with monkeys With rats and the results are amazing so basically they have been able to connect to rats brains to the internet and literally transfer information from one living brain to another one. Rat is taught how to get food. The other rat instantly knows how to get that whole wow enacted okay. So they have proven it out then o. k. Yeah if they can do this with rats. Which aren't that intelligent. I think they do it with humid's and they actually are so they have people with locked in syndrome that means they've had a stroke and they're completely paralyzed even move any part of their body with a brain computer interface. They can actually control a robotic arm and feed themselves. They can actually sent text messages over the internet. Totally cool and you can imagine in our lives. If we don't have to use a phone right we could literally anything we want. We want to download information from the internet. We just think about it. We don't have to have memorized it. We don't have to go to school for twelve years or six whatever so literally so the movie. The matrix actually had it wrong. He doesn't have to verbally. Tell tank i wanna know kung fu and then he knows it he has all yes dude was think about i i wanna know kung fu and then he's venit bruce lee and literally you know we may be able with these devices to train ourselves even in our sleep like literally you could learn a language in your sleep or you may not need to learn it at all because it could translate it into your brain. You'll time so. These technologies are being developed. A lot of you can't go out and buy one of these today. At this level you can buy very primitive brain computer interface backs and concentrate and things like that but but within the next ten years the first generation of these devices is coming and there are big players working not just along busk but facebook is developing brain computer interfaces. I consulted with some of the largest companies in the world on this actually in their design teams. I know what they're doing. So these are going to be commercialized. Not just for medical patients for people really need them with alzheimer's disease and things parkinson's they'll be valuable for them but also for consumers so that could be so so so so me. Let me stereo a little bit. Okay so one of things that that concerns me. And i'll go. I'll go into the negative direction. And i'll i'll ask your thoughts on this but i think i think a facebook and all of the different things they try to do to learn more about us to get us to view ads and different things like that facebook chasing after this this. I don't want to call it a dream this this future. I guess it kind of seems scary. What are some of the other impacts expectations that you see your coming. That also are in that direction. That's really good question. We have seen facebook and what they have done with our personal data and you know we trusted facebook with a lot of our data and really they haven't been good stewards of it. Say the least you know. Our data's been used in ways that isn't beneficial to us and hasn't been beneficial to society so their corporation they were sent. They weren't trying do bad things the're trying to maximize their profit and they were taking risks with our personal data. Now the question is. Would you trust a big company like facebook or google or microsoft or any other company in the world. Would you trust them with not just information that you do online but your innermost thoughts because that is what they're going to have access to when they have these brain computer interfaces so not only your innermost thoughts but if you think about it eventually these devices will not only be able to allow you to pull down information and send out commands but they may allow you to actually store information in your brain that may mean actually putting thoughts into your brain potentially rewriting memories potentially influencing you in ways that you are not aware of this is the dark side and this is actually a. It's going to happen just like on the internet. We didn't foresee all the way people would use our data that we couldn't see that but this is going to be happening with brain computer interfaces and is a serious discussion. We need to have now before. They're rolled out in millions of units across the country before we get addicted to them just like we can't live without our brain computer interface. We need to.

"All love summer fest down here. Most of us And the headline from the Journal Center was summer Fast Freeway Flyers downtown shuttle cancelled by Milwaukee County transit System for 2021. On its face disappointing, right? Uh, don smiley, the top guys, Summerfest said. Basically M C. T s cancel the decades long service with no warning. I look at this again as an opportunity. I have used the shuttle. I have used the, uh, freeway flyers many times over the last couple decades. Great setup. Eliminates having to worry about parking, which is not cheap congestion, traffic all that stuff and if you have a designated driver You can kind of all meet at the shuttle or the freeway Flyer location or a lot, And then I'll pile in the Boston and had the summer fest. Here's the opportunity piece, though, and I think some of us has indicated there working on this to fill the void. To quote, Don smiling There's opportunity here. Somebody, an enterprising bus company, local bus company. Transportation companies around the area. Can actually just charge people. Fair one makes them a little money and two benefits to customers a summer fest. There's that marketplace idea again. That we seem to struggle with. We have this idea that somehow these services should be Little or no cost to the consumer. US. Is it going to be as cheap as it was in the past? No. Will it make sense? Still, if to pay a little more absolutely. You don't have to park down there that saves you. I don't know what 10 15 2025 bucks. The lots that are around Summerfest, some of them not even that convenient. Not that close. Here's an opportunity for a private company to say, Hey, we can fill that void. We can get people the summer fest we can use off site locations that have people park and then truck them down the summer fest. That's how it should work. Whether this is a political stance by M. C. T s on top of all the other political stances we've seen over the years. I have no idea. Frankly, don't care. You don't want to do it, somebody else can come in and fill the opportunity. I know that as a consumer of summer fast, I'm going to be looking for those options. Doesn't matter if it's not in the summer. It's still nice weather in September. I don't want to drive to summer fest. I will look for someone that's offering the service. If it costs I don't know 5 10 bucks. Whatever it is, I've hands Cause it's cheaper than parking down there. Everything doesn't have to be a death sentence. Things change. Whatever the reasons for M C. T s Cancel this service that's existed for a long time. I don't really care. Yes, it's nice to go back and forth to summer fest for a few bucks. Sure. It cost me more than that, And it's still convenience. That's the price of doing business. It's not just about giving stuff away or giving stuff away at a reduced price. Sometimes the marketplace will decide these things and for consumers of summer fest I think the majority would say You know what? I'll pay a few extra bucks. We'll find somebody that's offering a similar service. Might not be as fancy as the buses. They were operating. I don't care. I seem to get the summer fest. Why does everything have to be the end of the world? It's a decision M. C. T s made. Let's deal with it. Summer fest and all of us who ride Let's just figure it out. Steve, How does this affect the state Fair? Yes. You know, similar argument. I don't know how much of that they do. I've never taken a, um, a bust The state fair. I know They do some of that. I've always parked in the on the race track or off site, so it will be something that I think that they'll have to factor in as well. My guess is not much is going to change because if they're already making decisions them CTS for September. Something in August is probably not gonna be any brighter or better so There's an opportunity there for the state Fair folks, but they have a little more parking that I think the summer first folks have. So anyway, that's number one of the 4 10. Look at it as an opportunity, not a death sentence will get over it. We'll figure it out. We'll get the summer fest. Whether it's in September or July. Alright, Number two coming up the box all important Game five. Tonight I'll give you my thoughts on that and a whole lot more next. It's more of the Steve Scarpitti Show. Next on WTMJ. The latest on what you need to know about your Milwaukee bucks can win a hotly contested, physical, energetic, effort.

"The christopher movie from wigan i guess now it's a couple decades ago where in that film leonard. Shelby has short term memory loss. So you know. Obviously the scenes run in verse. So you're constantly question. where am i. What's happening now and this kind of a similar sensation for me at least watching verse time. Yeah that's a great piece to kick it off with. I'll say two things in response to that First of all the word disorienting is going to run through a lot of my puzzle this year because that is definitely the the the main feeling of this film but then also just speaking specifically to christopher nolan and memento as a puzzle piece i feel like in a world an alternate time line where the dark knight and all. That didn't happen. That whole trilogy and christopher nolan still making fairly small films. I could see him making something like this. A more personal Puzzle of movie. Where things are kind of showy still but on a smaller scale. And i i to see that christopher nolan again one day. Yeah he's gotten kind of lost in the world of two hundred million dollar blockbusters for the last decade or decade. And a half at this point. But yeah i agree with you there so i'll go with another puzzle piece here and i think this is a movie. That probably comes up a lot on this show especially In combination with memento actually and that is michelle gandhi and charlie kaufman eternal sunshine of the spotless. Mind which i mean as a movie when it comes to showing just the the kasese of the mind and what it's capable of and just how confusing things can get once we start to mess with that These movies are really. There's nothing better when it comes to like showcasing. Just how weird that can get. And and also from a filmmaking point of view how creative the filmmakers can get in conveying that There are so many like visual tricks within the father that are that are being used whether it's in changing little bits and pieces.

Tell us about Section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act. What's the significance of it? Well, this is really important and it really kind of build the foundation for the Internet as we know it, and that means that these platforms like Facebook and Twitter and Google Are basically exempt from legal liability for the stuff that their users post. So if you were to go on Facebook and, you know, share something that breaks the law as long as Facebook Makes a goodwill effort to take that down. The company is not really in any legal issue because of that, and that has enabled you know these platforms to thrive and basically enabled people to go and build all my own communities. But now we're revisiting that because of ah lot of different things that have happened in the world over the last, you know, couple decades. And so these companies are worried that this law could be revoked and suddenly they might be legally liable for everything their users post into them. That's a huge threat not just to their business model, but they're going to try to argue that that's a threat to You know, free speech in general, and so that's I think what we're

"The political climate is so volatile now because people were kind of forced to give up sports do the pandemic. Now, those crazy fans were passionate about politics. Just the thought that's from Dave. I guess. I think the arc of interest in politics has certainly ramped up over the last couple decades. In this market and other places. We've we've focused on that we've We've targeted the other side. We We've certainly made it a competition. Instead of Ah, a joint group effort and I think No that allow people thrive on that friction. There's talk shows in this market that that's all they talk about that friction point the hatred of the other side. Look, I know there's a market for that. You know, you could do what you want to do when it comes to your media choices, But frankly, we're seeing the acceleration of this story, which is violence played out like we saw on January 6th. Again Baseline, not a hoax. Supporters of the president, some not all small minority Side of the riot killed a police officer. Let's not forget about that. All that black back to blue stuff doesn't matter much when you kill a police officer, beating him to death and we now have a couple. Other officers have taken the picking their own lives. PTSD or otherwise. So let's not forget about that. It's an interesting point to making. The comparison is one that I'll think about. But boys certainly interesting times in our country when it comes to the passionate few people that take it to the extreme when it comes to politics or sports couple interesting developments.

"Oh, I don't know. Somewhere around. See, that was a couple decades before I was born. I wasn't around to witness that event. But, yeah. S so that that's that's pretty interesting to see We got a lot scheduled for the show this evening. You don't want to miss a moment coming up in the next segment. As a matter of fact, I'm gonna bring Laura guy into the studio. She's a real estate investor within state. Real Estate Investors Association on We're going to talk about kind of the plight facing landlords in light of the moratorium that has been imposed. By both governors and the federal government at this point with seemingly no end in sight. I know landlords are usually nobody's idea of a victim, but we're gonna have that conversation coming up in the second hour going to bring Abdul in the studio. We're going to talk about just the terrible spat of crime. That is a violent crime that seems to be coming over and in Indianapolis, and it's just increasing year after year after year in Joe Hawks, That's administration. I'm speaking or kind of referring most recently to the Adams Street, Mass shooting where it was a young 17 year old man. Who killed his family, and that That still Leaves me speechless. I'm not really sure how to process that because the site psychopathy of of such an action is mind boggling and disturbing. So yeah, Abdul is Abdul Hakim Spaz Heard here on Wi D. C is one of the smartest individuals that I know. And I hope to have a very productive discussion with him again coming up in the second hour, So you don't want to miss that. Also, Donny, You're not gonna believe this. This week. I had another flat tire now. Fortunately, it was it was before the snow, but wasn't that like, two weeks ago? When you were in the studio because you were out last week, But, yeah, I had a flat tire and again. I want to really give props to tire and wheel service. The small shop right on the corner of Michigan and Sherman. Those guys take care of me. And it was, you know, like less than 40 bucks to get Ah, replacement tire, and I want to emphasize that in my state of bad luck, I've had three toughly three busted tires. In less than two months. And I want to highlight that none of those were actually sold by that shop. They were the remaining original tires when I purchased my vehicle a couple years ago, so yeah, you know, evidently it was their time to go but tired. We tire and wheel service right there on the east side of Indianapolis on the corner of Michigan and Sherman streets. They do an excellent job. So if you ever have a flat, I recommend them. Thoroughly and highly also, since we're gonna be talking about the plight of landlords, I want to mention another shop that I frequent often which is Audrey's place. Found close to right right again.

Why China is Joining the Global Push to Regulate Big Tech

"When it comes to regulating big tack europe has been taking an aggressive stance for a while now and as we talked about on the show. We've seen some action from the us as well but lately china has made moves to join in our reporter. Sam schechner joins me from paris. To talk about why china is getting involved now. What it's doing and what impact could be protect companies. Hey sam thanks for being here. Thanks for having me so before we get to china's action. I wanted to start by bringing us up to speed. European regulators have really been leading the charge when it comes to regulating tack. What have they been focusing on your right. That europe has really been at the leading edge. A lot of these these types of new rules europe's new privacy law the gdp our general data protection regulation was one of the first of the of a new class of transversal privacy laws. And that's actually been emulated in a number of parts of the world. Europe has also been among the first to initiate antitrust investigations into big companies including google and apple amazon and actually has issued decisions against google totaling more than nine billion dollars with fines in recent years and now europe is also helping lead the charge when it comes to coming up with new competition regulations. It's something that's been bubbling in academic circles for quite a while whether or not there's a handful of companies that are so big that they need their own special rules to make sure that they treat everyone fairly to make sure that companies have a chance to rise up and challenge them and the he us antitrust are also in charge of new digital regulation. Here margaret avesta your actually describe it with a metaphor to the automobile. She said that when cars were first invented it a new technology and after some period of time people realize that maybe we need traffic lights right and a lot of action clearly stemming from from that sort of mindset. We've also seen some action in the us as well right. There is indeed some momentum in the us four new competition rules you know given the political environment and some of the differences between democrats and republicans. It's not clear that there'll be an agreement that being said last summer. Democrats in the house. Judiciary committee released a report calling for changes to antitrust laws and creation of new types of obligations and republicans in their own report actually endorsed albeit a narrower set of changes but some areas of agreement such as requirements tech. Giant's make their services interoperable so there is the possibility that some types of legislation might see the light of day in the us dot. So that's sort of the lay of the land but china has also recently joined the push with some new proposals. What do they unveil well. That's right in. November china issued its first draft guidelines for how they want to regulate competitive behavior by digital giants and on paper the guidelines are actually very similar to some of the things that have come out in europe. The uk also has a set of regulations for big tech companies that the proposed and china's proposals include things like blocking companies from crunching consumer data in order to set discriminatory prices or at selling prices below cost to help gain market share. Some of the classic things that might be anti competitive more generally but that big companies are accused of doing and in potentially more difficult to identify with this. And i understand. China has a pretty short history with the sort of regulation. Why are they getting involved now. Well on one hand. China has one of the shortest histories of antitrust regulation of major global economies only adopted its anti-monopoly law in two thousand eight but more cynically. Some people have noted that this push began just slightly after an october speech from alibaba founder. Jack ma who publicly lashed out at the chinese government's tight financial regulations and following that there were a series of regulatory actions against elements of his internet empire. And so the question has been raised when you talk to. Experts is this chinese. Push about really trying to rein in big tech companies to preserve competition. Or is it about taking on people. Like mr ma who they think are challenging the power of the central government. And you know when you talk to when you talk to experts. They say that mon- speech may have been the trigger but that there have been longstanding concerns about increasing concentration among the chinese internet giants including including alibaba but also other companies to rate and since alibaba is one of china's biggest most powerful companies. Making jack ma. One of china's most powerful businessmen. This sort of illustrates broader difference between china and some of the other countries that we've talked about you know. China wants to exert a lot more control over attack and the internet then does the west could barrier in terms of getting different governments on the same page. Well that's a very good question you know we. We really don't know what the long term impacts are going to be of these rules. I mean for one thing. They haven't actually been applied yet. These are proposals and you're right that china's internet is largely dominated by its own set of companies not by global giants and chinese internet. Companies are much less present overseas. So you know it's it's a question. How much one regulatory system or the other will end up prevailing. There are certainly more countries in china's orbit that could end up adopting china's approach to internet regulation but in some cases in some senses that there's similar motivations behind what's going on. I mean whether you're trying to preserve state power for its own sake or because you want to make sure that there can be a new set of companies that come up to challenge. I mean those are still it boils down to saying certain companies have gotten too big and something needs to be done about them and so the more that those sorts of rules are being proposed. It certainly would count as momentum for them. And you know it's not a it's not a given that these things will be done so momentum is meaningful. i mean you. You have free market proponents. Who argue that. These types of proposals go too far that they would hobble digital markets and leave some people worse off so while there is a growing number of experts and competition regulators who say we might need rules like this they certainly aren't unopposed. So china's entry into the fray could potentially impact the course of the debate. Yeah and just to take further. What's the outlook for big tech. Now that china's join this push and how are the company is responding. Well i think big tech. Is these big tech. Giants are increasingly aware that they're going to be facing more regulation whether it's about privacy whether it's you know updates to tax rules whether it's about their obligations to other companies in terms of new competition regulations. It's just a fact of life. And so i think at this point. They're they're now down to figuring out how to make sure that these rules are ones that they can live with. You know when you talk to facebook they sort of are perhaps the most acquiescent saying that we acknowledge these types of rules must apply to us. Amazon and google say more that they would hope that rules that would be rules that apply to all companies not trying to focus on a few. But i think it's it's certainly fair to say that these companies are going to find themselves much more regulated and they have at the last couple decades have been a sort of open playing field for them. It seems likely that they're going to find their their field of action more limited. They may have time doing the same kinds of acquisitions that they had done before. Or certainly will face more scrutiny. Before they're able to complete them. Some regulations on the table could in the case of repeated non-compliance go as far as breakup. I think really the us would have to get more into the game for that to to truly be on the table. Indeed the ftc's suit against facebook last year did specifically talk about unwinding some of facebook's acquisitions

Practical Advice for Parenting Strong-Willed Children

"I sent you used to be. This is what i love about. You used to be both a teacher and then you were in law enforcement. I mean what a combo career that must have been really teacher. I mean kids must love that they did because you can always get them back with a good cop story can always get the attention back a lot of respect in the classroom and you've done so much you've written so many books and you really do have a heart for the strong well kids because you were one weren't you. Yes i am. One because outgrow it I have one because my mother prayed that would be so. And i talked to so many thousands of them over the past couple decades. And it's just it's so rewarding to be able to have that not only have that in common but to have them share with me yet. This boy i could have written this book. This is truly how i think. Let's mention that book because it is a great book for parents who are dealing with this and even parents who don't know if they are are they are not dealing with a strong willed child. that title is. You can't make me but i can be persuaded expanded. Love that title at tell us the attributes of a strong willed child whereas a parent. How do we start discerning. A strong willed child behavior. But you can really probably from the womb. The mothers i could from the beginning But about eighteen months or so By eighteen months you can really see some patterns emerging and is not negative and strong willed and of its as very positive. And you want all your kids to have a certain amount of strong well but how you guided how you direct it. You see strong convictions You see determination you see Where the not easily daunted not easily discouraged doesn't necessarily take no for an answer. You can tell me it's impossible to do but all i think is you mean. It's never been done yet. Nope window those attributes start appearing. One two three i think. Even an infancy Personally having been mom's wins. Especially i could see. I felt design had twins. I have one boy in one place and one in the other and even before they were born. I saw isn't that and that was strange. But especially in todd hood and it really shows up in the they we call them the terrible twos but they really kind of turbulent tooth but all through their life and i it depends again. How much shows up depends on the kind of parenting style and whether or not the strong willed child has an opportunity to exhibit those traits in a positive way but all through your life and you never ever outgrow it but some of the most successful people in the world have a really good strong dose strong. Well it's just when you're a parent and you strong little child is young. They have to practice on you. Because i mean when you think about it. Who else do you want him to practice on right budding young attorneys and politicians and preachers and sales people and if we can just guide it and directed in the right way. God has given us a great compliment. Strong child. i remember one of The incidences with my strong willed child gene was having a tea for the ladies and she'd put out all these chocolates on the table and several were missing by the time the t. came around and she said to trent i just unnamed name strong deterrent. Did you eat all these chocolates. And he said no. Why are all these chocolates missing. And he said. I didn't need all of them. I ate some of them. That's what a strong willed child will say. Write the letter of the law

"couple decades" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA

"Tell you F l A Ryan Gorman here with James Berland er on the board, and we're continuing to monitor everything involving this 2020 election. So again right now, Joe Biden has 253 Electoral college votes. President Trump has 217 so For President Trump to get to the magic number of 2 70. He has to win Georgia. He has two in North Carolina, and he has to win Pennsylvania. That puts him 2 68. And then he just needs either Arizona or Nevada, not both of them just one or the other. But if he loses any of Pennsylvania, North Carolina or Georgia, there's just no getting there. Ah, actually, let me correct that if He let me there we go. All right. So Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada is the other path that he could get 2 to 70 with, but he's probably I mean, I would say he's got a pretty good chance at hanging in their in North Carolina, which makes it a little bit easier for because then he only has to win the battle or Arizona. But Based on where things are trending at the moment. Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada. They're going to be really tough for the president to pull off. It's just It's not looking great in those states and and so here's what happened. It's a shame that every state didn't handle this election like Florida did. And it's kind of weird to say that because we've had so many election issues over the past couple decades in the state, but What we did in Florida was if you voted early or you mailed in your ballot. Those votes were tabulated ready to go when the polls closed at seven, and most of the state and then, of course, ate in a portion of the Panhandle. They're ready to go and then boom all of a sudden on election night. If you were listening to news radio fella, you heard it live as I was going through everything you've got, like 75% of the vote in in some places, Pinellas County Big drop of votes, And you've got Joe Biden looking pretty good in Pinellas County. I was looking like he was going to do really well there, but problem, Wass. That drop of votes didn't include the day of vote. Which we knew was going to beam or Republican Mohr leaning towards President Trump. The early vote was going to be more towards Democrats. Mohr of a Joe Biden vote. So what we've seen since is a tightening in Pinellas County. And now with 93% of the vote in Joe Biden's in 49.4% and President Trump's a 49.2%. That was not the case early on. On Tuesday night, Joe Biden had a much more significant lead, but once the day of Vogue got counted, then things tightened up. That happened in a couple other places across the country. But then the opposite has been taking place in other states That didn't do it that way. So in Pennsylvania, the Republican Legislature there didn't allow those early and mail in votes to be counted in advance. So instead what you have there was you had an initial Dump of information that was favorable to President Trump because it was the day of vote and what we've been getting ever since. Is the mail and vote and the early vote, and you're also seeing that in Georgia. In a big way. So Each state does it differently, But that's why you've seen some of these big ships. We also saw some ships in Michigan and Wisconsin, where the day of vote came in, looked good for President Trump. But there was still a lot of vote out there. There's still a lot of votes that needed to be tabulated. And those were the early votes and the mail in votes that we knew were leaning heavily towards Joe Biden. Once those got counted, you saw things change, and those are two states that have gone to Joe Biden. So that is why we're seeing what we're seeing over the past couple of days. It's certainly made things much more confusing, Nothing nefarious about it. It's just how different states set things up in advance. You had some states where it was going to look because of how much early voting and mail in voting was done this year. There were some states where if they counted that In advance and dropped it right away on election night. It was going to look like Biden Mirage like things were going great for Biden when the day of vote could bring things back for President Trump and then the opposite in states where they weren't allowed to cat toe. Count those votes early. Then you had the day of vote. Drop things look great for Trump. And then when the rest of the votes start getting counted, it ships back to Biden. That's why we've seen what we've seen. We're awaiting President Trump is expected to make remarks in just a few moments. We'll bring those remarks to you live here on NewsRadio, W Fella. News, traffic and weather. Tampa Bay's news radio w F L A Forecasters admit they're not sure what to expect from ADA as it remains over Central America. There are a lot of variables making its track and strength more uncertain, unusual National Weather Service meteorologist Robert Garcia's as well, the latest forecast track as it moving further south.

Biden clarifies debate answer on fossil fuels

"But the Trump campaign thought bite and made a major error by by seeming to say toward the end of the debate that he wanted to get rid of fossil fuels Dubai Canal I see this as a mistake. Nobody did clarify the reporters afterwards he was talking about ending subsidies for the oil industry. But if you look at his campaign planet really would phase out oil and gas drilling over the next couple decades. He wants to totally overhaul the country and get it. Maurizio. You know, wind and solar. The president keeps coming back to to this thinking that it's a way to help him win Pennsylvania specifically when it comes to the issue of fracking, but it's worth pointing out. Fracking has slowed down in Pennsylvania over the last few years, and it's a state with a really robust, clean energy economy, so this might not be the key issue. The president thinks it is.

Rob Maurer Of Tesla Daily And David Trainer Of New Constructs

"Everybody, Rob Power here. Today we have the good fortune to be joined by David trainer of New Constructs David. Put out a note last week with his team on Tesla that was relatively bearish. So I thought it would be a good opportunity to have somebody on the podcast. Maybe give a different perspective than what is sort give day to day and hopefully. We can both learn a little bit throughout the course of the conversation So David a former analyst with credit. Suisse. And then for the last couple decades, he is the founder and CEO of new contracts on investment research firm so David Nathan, you want to add to that in terms of your workings INS specifically this note on Tesla. Yes sure. No. We we're an independent research firm. So we don't doing any investment banking or trading There was a time when I ran a hedge fund will be don't do that anymore. So there's there's no short position in Tesla and honestly there's there's no axe to grind here. I'm flattered to to you on the show and I'm also a big fan of cars and I think beautiful. And I think would Elon Musk has been. Has Been Great for our world. I. Think he was really a tipping point in enforcing the big autos to to move more toward electric vehicles. What let's face it. You know one has to question why they never really wanted to do it on their own how they needed external government pressure to to increase gasoline efficiency. When that at the end of the day, we just lowered the cost of ownership for their product, which is a good thing but yet they didn't do it want us to wonder why that is. So I think he lawn. With respect to Tesla Electric Vehicles and our environment has done the world huge service. Insides one lead that fan I think the cars are beautiful. I wish I had one of my kids always rave about how much how awesome they are when they ride in one of their friends parents Tesla's it's funny in in. So I think there's a lot of good that has come out of what you musk is done at this space as well as other spaces. And the beautiful green cards. So you guys are kind of approaching it from a just an overvalued perspective on the company right now. Yeah. It's it's really kind of an old school throwback to the fiduciary in investor as opposed to the speculator the trader. Look there's no doubt you know as Jim, Cramer said he he's a fan test left for the last eighteen hundred points right? I mean look the momentum. The trading aspect here's Banal and it's been a huge wealth creator. An Art perspective is very narrowly focused on the fiduciary and decide the of risk. In, a market that's been such a strong performer. Since the The deer in in March you know, I think some people we got some feedback that people were kind of looking at how to manage whether or not we're at the top or or not in this market and we thought you know look. The first thing you do is identify where there's the most risk in your portfolio. So we kind of went through we cover around three thousand stocks as well as ETF's mutual funds and we looked for like, okay where's this? Where's the where's the risk extreme and then you know especially with Tesla, you gotta take into account all these sort of the optionality, all these great things that that Tesla might do. To, justify the future cashflows embedded in the stock price. And we went through the checklist and we thought, okay, we think there's a fair case to be made here for those with fiduciary responsibilities and produce responsibilities. To Take into account. Or. Consider. The risk in the stock relative to fundamentals. Sure. I know that that's a big part of your note later on. So definitely get through to some the valuation stuff So I thought probably the best way to kind of just kind of structure. This was to go point by point. I've had a lot of listeners that have read your note and have sort of asked me to give my my thoughts on it. So I thought you know what better way to do that than have the man himself here to discuss with me so Sweet. So you've got a lot of I mean this is probably a few thousand word article here. So let's just start right at the top. So you start off by saying. Really comparing the devaluation of tesla per car sold versus other automakers. I wanted to just sort of get your thoughts on this because I think you know this perspective or this this particular metric in isolation to me isn't all that particularly meaningful us are wanted to you just sort of get your take on why Joseph Start off with this and then get sort of my thoughts as well. Yeah, we're just sort of a level center to get a sense of how rich the expectations are and in just to give some perspective our approach valuation is is as I say, tomato analysts. Would you rather be a fortune teller or critic before to tell her and we see Mr Market or the stock market is a fortune teller. Here, she is giving us a price every day, and what we do new constructs is reverse engineer what the future cash flows, the revenue, the margins, the capital efficiency, the business, all that we reverse engineer with those need to be to justify the price and so. What we like to do is kind of begin be objective perspective on evaluation is and that's what we see in this chart like there's a big disconnect. It's not to say that Tesla can't achieve these expectations but for right now, there's a lot of credit given to what the company will do in

Lady A, formerly Lady Antebellum, sues blues singer Lady A

"We all know the story. Country group Lady Antebellum dropped the antebellum. Decided to go with their nickname Lady A right and they did this just out of in solidarity with the black community because they realized the implications of antebellum and the civil war. And all that stuff felt were trying to do a good thing. Right? So they decided out of respect. They're just goingto go by lady A will. Then this R and B singer named Anita White. Who goes by lady, eh? Mom said, Hey, wait a second. I've been using that name while performing for 20 years. So they end up having this zoom call and we end up seeing some of it in the media, you know, like, Oh, look at them. They're laughing, laughing. Yes. Well, then, Anita Way, lady, eh? Ah, the R and B singer came forward and said OK, once the lawyers got involved, this is when things are starting to break down. Well, now the country group Lady a has filed suit against R and B singer lady, eh? Excuse me yesterday in federal court in Nashville. They've been in a battle over the name Thins announcing, of course, on June 11th that they were dropping the antebellum portion of their name. A few weeks ago, they had thought they had come to an agreement with I need a white lady, eh? Who's been performing under that name. Like I said, for a couple decades, those talks broke down. And now the group's lawyers say that I need a white is trying to keep them from enforcing. The trademark that they registered 10 years ago. Right? They've had a trademark on the name lady, which we didn't know that previously were 10 years. Yes, so she's demanding. $10 million to relinquish her claim to the name. And they're insisting that they wouldn't try to keep her from performing as lady, eh? They just want her to allow them to do the same. Sure, their trademark that they have, right, right. Exactly. So which makes it seem like that would be that's Ah, strong case if you have the trademark as opposed to if you're both just putting your hand and say Wait, we go by that. Wait. No. I have already gone by that. I don't know much about law. But I think that trademarks are a pretty powerful feather toe. Having your cat point. Yeah, and they didn't on under this. I agree. They filed the trademark. Like I said 10 years ago, then it took a year for it to get approved. And then Mrs Miss White. You know, you could say had plenty of opportunity to challenge it. And she never did until this story came out and I just feel bad for everybody.

The Mopar Hunter's Top 5 Of The Week

"What Mope aren't suzy. We are back again for another fun filled episode of talking Mo- Pars and I've got some good news my project. Art is finally getting an engine. Unfortunately it's not the fifty one that I had hoped for because that engine is still at the machine shop dead in the water for monetary reasons. But I'm so anxious to get behind the wheel of this dart that I've actually decided to hold off on the big box walk for now. I have most of the small block parts. Still with the exception of the engine and transmission. So I actually had a buddy reach out to me about the seventy one charger. I was looking at saying that he had a three eighteen and nine hundred four that he was just looking to give away so he generously donated that engine and transmission to the new cars. And the new. 'cause IS TO DART on the road before I go out acquiring any other projects I gotta get the ones. I have on the road with that being said. I've got a project right now with this little three eighteen and I'm just trying to dress it up a little bit and give it a little bit more go crazy. I just want to make it a little bit fun okay. The engine project that I have now is called project free eighteen because it is a three eighteen and free. So that's what I'm up to. I'm just gathering parts trying to find good deals and it's funny because I posted this cheesy ad was a wanted poster. Ernest said basically wanted small block. Par- parts you know. Cheap is good and free great and there was one guy who's like. Oh better. Get a small block Chevy. Nothing in the Mo- par world is cheap. But here's the thing he's wrong because I've gotten plenty of cool stuff for free or next to free or really cheap. Just based on the fact that I'm a nice guy and I guess I've been fortunate that I've ran into such cool people in the mobile world and unfortunately for that guy. Apparently he's run into a bunch of jerks that are just out for money which you know there are a lot of people like that and the Mo- park immunity unfortunately but you know thankfully I haven't run into any of them. I've ran into some really cool people and they've given me some really good deals so I'm not complaining on that front and I'm still getting the deals I just acquired an intake and a carb and I've got some really cool vintage valve covers and I'm just having fun with this car now. I've got everything I need to throw together and have a ratty little small blocked art and that's all I want. The shiniest parts on the start are going to be the wheels and tires because I have brand new bef. Gta's and Krieger SS for it. So you know it is what it is. I'm GonNa have fun with it and hopefully you guys will be along for the ride. I'm going to try to get some of that content up on Youtube here sooner rather than later so you guys can follow along on a little bit more of a visual level. So that's what I'm up to now. Let's get this show on the road. Like I said in the introduction folks we've got to listeners stories and I'm GonNa Sandwich our segment called high performance parts in between both stories justice which things so our first listener story comes from Shane. Taylor here. Is Shane Story? Hey Chris my dad has always had cool cars and trucks for much of my life. He's made a living off of hunting down deals and then flipping them. I'm now in my late twenties own a house and financially stable as a congratulations or as my dad says early inheritance. He said I could have any one of my choosing. I had the choice between fully restored. Nineteen seventy-nine Camaro RS s with a pretty radical three eighty three stroke or a fully restored Purple Nineteen fifty-six Plymouth Savoie or a dusty old red and black nineteen fifty five Plymouth Belvedere that didn't run and was missing the rear window which is apparently traded for a brick that sat in the backseat. I took the fifty six savoie because it was in the best condition and would need the least amount of work. It was perfect. Because I don't know a ton about working on cars but I love detailing although this is probably the most valuable car. It had a few drawbacks. The car was restored in the nineties and was overdue for another restoration in the near future. The interior was badly stain and fading. The paint was getting rest bubbles and there was a lot of custom work done that was very obviously trendy a couple decades ago but not anymore the worst part though it had a three fifty small block. Chevy. Don't get me wrong. My family was GM all the way. Unless there was a MO- part deal to be found. My Dad even warned me that when I took it I couldn't hang out with the Mo guys or else I'd be chastised. He said apart by the fifties chevrolets at shows and don't talk about the car more than need be after all. The car had no signs of make other than the aluminum. Plymouth play under the door when open so most people thought it was a chop fifty seven Chevy. Once I got it I started doing research on the forward. Look Mo- parts and I fell in love the more I looked at him. The more disappointed became with fifty six mash up with Chevy engine. Ford Rerun Nineteen Ninety. Eight Ford Escort Royal Plum. Paint which looked great. But I just can't stand forwards and Tacky customisations. I found myself eyeing the faded beaten up Belvedere that my dad had sitting in a shop. It had one around the title and had gone to his surviving kin. It was easily ninety percent original so I started drooling after I to educate myself on these classics after a week of having the Purple Plymouth. I called Dad and told him I made a mistake. I detailed the Savoie and send it back to him. Any happily gave me the bus at fifty five after all he had been offered up to ten thousand four and only paid fourteen hundred for the non running Belvedere. Although it wasn't a smart financial decision was the right thing to do and I couldn't be happier. We really to a local shop that specializes in classic. Mo- parts have the clutch rebuilt as well as some brake work done. Once I got a new six volt battery hooked up. It started and ran great. Save for some smoke. Every light on the car worked perfectly and the more I looked around through the scattered parts in the interior and trump the more original parts. I found for it now. There runs in drives learning and working on finding parts for these is a very expensive scavenger hunt. But it's fun to work on such a neat piece of history even though I live two hours from my dad. It's brought us closer together because I'm always sending in pictures of things. I've probably messed up and calling him for help. I look forward to restoring beauty overtime. The Right Way and going to car shows with him even if we can't park next to each other Shane. Thanks for sending in your story I've been wanting to do some forward look content and your story kind of inspired me to get Looking into what I want to cover an hi Wanna go about doing it. I actually have a guest lined up. That is pretty deep in the forward look community. But I haven't really scheduled him in yet so I gotta get a hold of him and figure out when we can get him on the show. Because like I said and like I've been saying this show is for all aren't disease that includes a forward look the modern era everything in between and I'm GONNA stick to my word. We will cover the antique stuff like the really really old stuff. We're going to cover the forward. Look we're going to cover it all or at least we're gonNA give it our best shot so look forward to that very cool story. I'm glad that you chose at least a MO- par over the Chevy. That makes you a lot cooler in my book and let me just say this. A car enthusiasts first and foremost but I am a Mo- par guy so I respect all cool cars but there's just something about Mo- parts that gets me going so when I take shots at Ford and Chevy guys you know nothing personal. It's all in good fun. Okay now back to Shane Story. It's good to hear that you're getting into Mo- pars and cars in general it's something fun to learn and you sound like you're really motivated to gear project on so that's really cool in. Hey a fifty. Five Belvedere is pretty cool in my book. So keep me posted on your project. Buddy thanks for sending in your story I really WanNa see pictures of this car and see how far you belong. Maybe you can call in and give me some tips to pass along the people because I get people asking me about forward look cars and where to find parts and all this and a lot of stuff you know. I try my best but I don't own a forward look cars. I'm not too deep in that world and I know there's people out there that own those cars and start finding really good resources and stuff so anybody out there actually not just. Shane knows any good places to go forward. Look stuff let me know if you know someone. That's really deep in the forward. Look each that's one aspect of mope our history that I admittedly don't know very much about but I love those cars. I think are really cool and I'll take. I'll take anything in the forward look era over fifty seven Chevy any day but that's me and that's not to say the fifty seven chevies aren't cool but hey forward look parts or cooler. Proven wrong Shane once again. Thank you for sending in your

"Lamination to call it fake news yeah I I would disagree a little bit with your premise I don't think it's often it has a different straps wrong sometimes it is but and there's all different kinds of reporting about each subject going on from all different kinds of news media and some may make mistakes from my observation I've not seen very many major mistakes but I do see at the office of the press continues reporting on the subject right now we're for instance watching the news media grapple with the fat with the who know how to code but buyers start how did make its way to United States No Way what how fast did you grow here internet reporting is necessarily very incremental because there is no there's no report there's no cure no Pentagon papers it did that to to rely on and so they piece together the story and sometimes the pieces are wrong it's like putting a jigsaw puzzle together you got that piece it looks like he'll fitness corner over there in the middle and in fact it really fits in the bottom once you finally figured out and so the pressure be judged on the on the the overall performance and not whether individual mistakes are made I I've often said I say this in a memoir that I've written it comes out in the fall that did they do the Daily News I I. newsroom to me a daily newspaper to me yeah he is a quota putting out a daily newspaper is like a a a a a car company in one day designing a brand new model of a car making that model of the car and selling it the next morning and that's how complicated it is and so mistakes will be made and there's always gonna be some mistake for the president to to assist seaside although often we called mistakes aren't he's not telling the truth the the story was accurate but there but those things will happen and it should be that's why it's important for the media to correct its mistakes I do fault news media organizations when they don't correct our mistakes in a timely and obvious matter about as long as they do that to get the record right over the long run and that's our job an important point is also in the report is that scrutiny not only here in Washington by the media but also with the state and the local apple and that's where we're seeing a lot of these newspapers struggling yes because they no longer have the resources that they had before their staffs are much smaller so everything going out of business in a publishing as often the same thing with local newscasts Calvin Calvin stations across the country no longer have their own newscast say they share that with other people other stations owned by the same company or stop them altogether and this is because of the digital impact on the news media news me with really supported by advertising of both the newspapers and broadcast and that advertising was siphoned off by the internet it has a result they're far less resources and then how long comes code nineteen I wish takes even more advertising divide of the news media and so they're really struggling and we pick ten thousands of jobs for a newspaper jobs have been lost all across the country in the last couple decades and right now it's exhilarating more more more more jobs are being cut and so you've got some struggling newspapers around the country I'm talking a big city newspapers that have a tiny fraction of the reporters and editors that they used to have you course have a long list of recommendations the report available at C. P. J. dot org but when you go through just a few of them and one is resuming the daily briefings and you're talking about not the one that we're seeing right now with the president but with the White House press secretary should those briefings be off camera would they be more productive that's a good question about where they need to be on camera I I obviously being a print reporter don't care if they work on camera if I were a television journalist I'd be concerned that you know when you turn on the nightly news you would not be able to see the most important thing that the press secretary said everything alive as opposed to having reported to you so I see the reason for having two cameras and if there are if we were in a different situation where the president was not purposely attacking the press and the way this president does in the end there was grandstanding going on in the briefing room then I think it would be the responsibility of the White House correspondents association try to try to tame that however I have to say that what is it what is often we would press secretaries often say is is acting out in the in the questioning is infectious tough questioning and the fact that same question is repeated over and over again on occasion says you're now seeing in these briefings because there was an answer to the first place and that is the job of the reports had to carry out the questions and if you're doing it on camera that also means that the the road to journalist is presenting the information in the question so the so that the audience is hearing the facts even if the briefer will not present the facts the other big big difference between the traditional briefing said the current ones the girl was supposed to only be one subject but of course the president because off that subject how to do a variety of other things it looks suspiciously like campaigning but the the the briefings with the press secretary said experts that they would bring it in the case of the president would come and were intended to cover all the all the things you were going on of importance that reporters did ask about for the benefit of their readers viewers and listeners and it did that was that was very useful also you would have said to the people yeah alongside the wall where you see some of the size of the health experts now he's currently things are representing a variety of different kinds of parts of the administration parts of the White House who the reporters could then go up and buttonhole afterwards and ask him questions a further questions off camera which of course is not happening now because everybody has to exit the room with the president another set of recommendations ending the practice of bringing espionage charges against those news sources who leaked classified information and don't threaten the broadcasting license of television and radio stations can you talk about that yes first the first one the prosecutions of new sources the prosecutions of administration officials and contractors who provide to a country I have a confidential information to it too to reporters classified information to journalist I would actually started during the Obama administration that was one of the things that I reveal to criticize the bike for twenty thirteen report in the Obama administration the press was that they were using a twenty second nineteen seventeen espionage act it was designed to prosecute spice for foreign governments during World War one they were using that to prosecutes the sources of confidential it confidential information to the news media and that was a that was a terrible thing that the bothered ministration was doing and he said picked up by a by the by the trump administration and they now I think of prosecutors almost as many a source of information to have somewhere around nine or ten as the Obama administration had and and that is to protect those very chilling hi to which potential whistleblowers who who what why do you want to reveal to the media things that are going on inside the government that appear to be very dangerous American people if not illegal and and also raises the possibility of whether not to press the reporters themselves might be prosecuted under this act the no court cases say one way or the other in one final point because four of the last five presidents have been reelected dating back to Ronald Reagan through Barack Obama so if Donald Trump is reelected what would a second term look like in terms of the press and the presidency well no one hand he would not have to be worrying as he is now about being reelected and therefore would not necessarily have the motivation to attack press coverage it's unfavorable to him and he sees his unfavorable dam for fear of not being reelected however I believe this entire life history has shown the his images stream we import to him but as for reelection or not and and easy and easy very thin skinned about anything is unfavorable about him so I would I would guess that you may feel you has he been a freer hand to attack to press it maybe even seek unconstitutional means of muzzling the press or or doing other things to the press two and for his benefit knowing that he no longer would have to be a run run for reelection and be judged for that in in researching this report your biggest surprise was what all my galley yeah I guess it was well first of all the threats against media organizations the the nature of the attacks a number of individual members of the press by by supporters of the president through Twitter and otherwise the security that newsrooms have had they've had to erect the fact that many reporters covering administration now have to have a special means of contacting them on the telephone to protect the confidentiality of the callers the things that I never would have imagined content marketing the report is titled the trump administration and

Pablo Escobar's Hippos Could Endanger Colombian Ecology

"Around one hundred and fifteen miles east of medicine in Colombia since the enormous Hacienda built by the drug Lord Pablo Escobar. Who had his own personal zoo? Which included hippos when Escobar's empire fell most of the exotic animals were safely relocated except for the hippos who eventually escaped to eat right four from as you in the US to Columbia and they lived at his ranch and they've grown slowly but steadily Jonathan suren ecologists from the University of California in San Diego. The original population of four in nineteen eighty one is estimated to be at least eighty. Now Hippos have tremendous influence on their native ecosystems in Africa so sure and wanted to see how they might be affecting their new ecosystem in Columbia. Shouldn't surprise anybody hippos poop in the water South America Africa Hippos on both Continents Wallow in ponds and lakes where their droppings release a tremendous amount of nutrients into the water that imported materials stimulates photosynthesis of algae and aquatic plants and also microbial battery production of bacteria. That are living off your Ganic matter. That's imported have mass. The hippos can cause ecological trouble if there is too much photosynthesis occurring in the water becomes full of oxygen during the daytime but at night when the sun goes down and the plants and algae stop releasing oxygen into the water a phenomenon called eutrophication occurs all the creatures that consume oxygen keep consuming it and the overall amount of oxygen dissolved in the water becomes critically low dropping. Low enough you can help. All the fish SORTA croaking going belly up. The researchers also say the situation provides a unique glimpse into the way that massive mammals like mammoths and mastodons. Long extinct in the new world may have influenced their habitats prior to their extinction but they also know that unless we can somehow curtail their population growth. The hippo population could explode in the next couple decades at which point they will disrupt larger and wild river systems. The study is in the Journal. Ecology lethal control isn't the popular management strategy among people who love hippos or see them as valuable tourism attraction but the question is when not if the hippos become detrimental to Colombian ecology which means that folks should be thinking about the best way to solve the problem now when there are fewer than a hundred hippos to manage and not thousands.

Coronavirus Puts A Crimp On The Chinese Tourism Industry

"And Chinese tourists account for more than ten percent of the global tourism industry that's more than any other country so airlines cruise ships and high end hotels across the world are in limbo and here's Jackie north and has the story just a couple decades ago Chinese tourists were usually diplomats are athletes since then Beijing has relaxed travel restrictions in a growing economy means more people have disposable income to travel that's made for a lot of crossings a Chinese borders last year we had something like a hundred seventy million border crossings that's Wolfgang Arnold the founder of the China bound tourism research institute which helps international tour companies do business with Chinese customers he says the most popular destinations for Chinese visitors are in Asia thank Thailand Hong Kong and Macau but the sites in the luxury goods found in Paris Sydney in New York City are also popular the greatest number we have for spending is which was of nineteen according to the official records of United Nations for treatment organization it was two hundred seventy seven billion US dollars spent by Chinese on it in this interim so that's quite a number and a lot of those tourists came to the US Chris Hey would with NYC and company New York city's marketing organization says in twenty eighteen the city welcome more than a million Chinese visitors China is a tremendously important market for New York City it represents about three billion dollars in total revenue the fear over the corona viruses brought Chinese tourism to a screeching halt many airlines have suspended flights to and from China so there's concern about the potential financial in impact of the virus he would says his organization is in a wait and see mode we are monitoring the situation very carefully and very closely but it's too soon for us to make an assumption on exactly how this is going to affect business in the long term listing Arnold says he's optimistic that Chinese tourism will resume after the corona viruses contained he points to the sars outbreak in two thousand and three that's across the somewhat similar story that for about three months no Chinese came out of China but after that what we could see and what I think also we can expect this time is once this is over there and the Chinese will travel even more since his institute is forecasting that by twenty thirty one out of every five international tourists will be Chinese but that all depends how long it takes to contain the corona

When Insurance Won't Cover Drugs, Americans Make 'Tough Choices' About Their Health

When Insurance Won't Cover Drugs, Americans Make 'Tough Choices' About Their Health

"What happens when insurance companies deny coverage for medications? It doesn't just force people to pay for drugs themselves. A survey finds that for almost half of Americans went. When Insurance Denies Payment? They do not get the drugs at all. The poll comes from NPR. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Public Health. NPR's Patty name reports Sahlin. REDUC- is seventy eight on a fixed income. She has severe acid reflux. I have to eat very small all meals and when I eat sometimes it feels like everything's stuck in my chest and I get really bad pain. And I have to throw up reduces retired on medicare she also pays for supplemental insurance policy to cover the cost of drugs but it will only pay for the generic version of her heartburn medication. Her her doctor prescribed the brand name. She says the generic version just doesn't work for her. No it's not as effective now. Definitely not she can't afford the brand name so now she has extremely painful episodes of acid reflux about three times a month. Our poll shows that like Ridolfi. The vast majority pretty of Americans have health insurance that includes prescription drug coverage but one in three say that in the past year insurance. Didn't cover the cost of medication and for themselves or their household members Robert Blend in with the Harvard Chan School directed our poll. So what you see is insurers are not paying for some drugs that physicians are recommending. The patients think they need when that happened. Most of the highest earners paid for the medication themselves but Glendon says is that was not the case for everyone else. A half of the people who are middle class or or moderate income are not getting him because they can't afford to go out and pay for it themselves batum line. He says it's just not fair. This idea that if we save money we all have to make tough choices together. The tough choices really don't affects the most wealthy people in the United States. They just affect people who are middle and lower income and this could leave lower and middle income individuals more vulnerable to disease and other health problems for Sally Rideau see one example is her EPI pen. She's allergic to bees and needs the EPI pen to inject life saving medication in case she gets stung and the last time I was stung. The doctor said each time you get stung can be very serious and it can result in death so he's always carry the EPI pen and in my case.

When Insurance Won't Cover Drugs, Americans Make 'Tough Choices' About Their Health

"What happens when insurance companies deny coverage for medications? It doesn't just force people to pay for drugs themselves. A survey finds that for almost half of Americans went. When Insurance Denies Payment? They do not get the drugs at all. The poll comes from NPR. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Public Health. NPR's Patty name reports Sahlin. REDUC- is seventy eight on a fixed income. She has severe acid reflux. I have to eat very small all meals and when I eat sometimes it feels like everything's stuck in my chest and I get really bad pain. And I have to throw up reduces retired on medicare she also pays for supplemental insurance policy to cover the cost of drugs but it will only pay for the generic version of her heartburn medication. Her her doctor prescribed the brand name. She says the generic version just doesn't work for her. No it's not as effective now. Definitely not she can't afford the brand name so now she has extremely painful episodes of acid reflux about three times a month. Our poll shows that like Ridolfi. The vast majority pretty of Americans have health insurance that includes prescription drug coverage but one in three say that in the past year insurance. Didn't cover the cost of medication and for themselves or their household members Robert Blend in with the Harvard Chan School directed our poll. So what you see is insurers are not paying for some drugs that physicians are recommending. The patients think they need when that happened. Most of the highest earners paid for the medication themselves but Glendon says is that was not the case for everyone else. A half of the people who are middle class or or moderate income are not getting him because they can't afford to go out and pay for it themselves batum line. He says it's just not fair. This idea that if we save money we all have to make tough choices together. The tough choices really don't affects the most wealthy people in the United States. They just affect people who are middle and lower income and this could leave lower and middle income individuals more vulnerable to disease and other health problems for Sally Rideau see one example is her EPI pen. She's allergic to bees and needs the EPI pen to inject life saving medication in case she gets stung and the last time I was stung. The doctor said each time you get stung can be very serious and it can result in death so he's always carry the EPI pen and in my case. I do a lot of gardening and I'm by myself so just felt safe to have my Epi pen with me just in case but this time when she went to the pharmacy to get the pen prescribed by her doctor she was told her insurance wouldn't cover the cost. It was close to six hundred dollars and I said well how about the generic could I get generic and she said well. That's three ninety eight and I said you're kidding. She said no I said okay then.

"couple decades" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"Couple decades before we get into that in a more macro sense after your first in two thousand four you wrote a book that's titled fragments of grace my search for meaning in the strife of South Asia and now another decade has gone by and it's gotten more complicated what what is happening with your own search for that meaning as the situation you've been covering gets even more complex it's a very good question and one that I can't answer yet it's certainly something that I have thought about a lot comparing before and after I've thought about sort of new ways to write about it one of the reasons that I was you know I felt it was time to come back from living in those countries was because I felt that I was losing some of my creativity some of my sense of something something that's important in new and exciting and and and how do you write about it how do you keep writing about something that isn't getting better that isn't changing that still you know how do you write about a suicide bombing for the dozens time in a way that's different obviously the people are different you can find out about them you can the circumstances will be different you know case recent bombing at a wedding which was very unusual there been obviously everything is different but it's the same problem that keeps recurring and recurring and I've stayed a few extra months because it was a great hope that the peace talks we're going to bear fruit and then instead they were canceled and they're now still suspended on we don't know what's going to happen with that so I felt as if search for meaning as I originally called it before it was harder to find and and if you if you you know the title fragments of price which I use and if you saw my broker read it you know we had a lot of anecdotes centered about individual people I've met who were special or not necessarily you know people who won something or gain something with people who have touched me people's experiences have touched me and in in reporting about whom I have found something uplifting that that was what I was looking for and that's what I meant by that title and and that has become harder and harder to find you still find people that are you know doing something special who are unusual who are trying to take over adversity might my second my more recent book the one about Pakistan I my epilogue is about you know how does the tar ET who's an extraordinary man who just want I I think it's actually probably the only thing I've ever met he's and he's dead now it is elderly man who came from a well to do family could have had a normal career and business but he devoted his life to helping the very very very poor in in in a really unique way he founded this ambulance service and it's basically it was sort of a very nitty gritty he one of the specialties of his work was going around collecting on dead bodies of people that didn't have anybody to bury them a humble and literally wanting to help those who had no help and I I I was very inspired by him and I was very glad I didn't meet him before he died also a look at your photographs how did photography become part of your work I've always loved to take pictures and so I've everywhere I've gone I've always taken lots of pictures and sometimes they've been used and newspapers other times not I sometimes a bit in my books but I always feel that it's it does add so much to the texture and written richness of what you're reporting on to to to show people and and their environment and how many do you think your house now my god thousands and thousands going to do with them all the things well a lot of them are in you know sort of it would be hard to sort of use now they're an old old camera you know tips that don't you know or or even before that film I mean a lot of it was found in the early days most of my work from Latin America and taking pictures this on film and I somewhere I have these slips of you know glycine whatever you call it slips of of negative somewhere more recently you know the chips and now it's all digital so I also had my cell phone destroyed so I lost a lot of those so you know I I have saved compresses ones that I've lost this is Q. in day with Pamela constable of The Washington Post well we're gonna start with Afghanistan and as I mentioned to you before we started taping I'm going to give our audience to some very brief facts about the major countries that we're going to talk about just so they have some context as these facts are all from the CIA Factbook and from USA ID forty million people live in the country it's twenty five percent urban so seventy five percent world the median age in the country's nineteen life expectancy fifty two years ninety eight ninety nine percent Muslim eighty five point of percent of which are Sony per capita income five hundred and fifty dollars a year but here's the U. S. connections the U. S. R. a I. D. budget including department of defense all aid to the country in twenty sixteen seven of five point seven billion dollars five point seven billion dollars US spending on the war since two thousand one nine hundred and seventy five billion dollars US military casualties twenty three sixty two deaths twenty thousand people wounded civilian casualties estimated at thirty eight thousand that's from Brown University site the cost of war so that's the state of the country who are the combatants there today well today it's it's you know the war there has been a real roller coaster with different phases in different different players you might say it's obviously the American and the NATO component now is much much much smaller there's really only a few thousand international forces there left and they're basically confined to training and advising except for the special forces who do participate in combat with with the Afghans but that's a separate kind of a separate small program it's not the major part of the war so you still have the Taliban the Taliban which came roaring back in two thousand six seven eight is is still remains a full fledged very committed very well armed insurgency and it is still wreaking havoc all over the country including the capital you have a much smaller section of ISIS or the Islamic state which is not affiliated with the Taliban sometimes works with them and sometimes it works against them they're obviously they're internationally based they're not domestically base the way the Taliban is and they're much smaller numbers but they are extremely ruthless in Afghanistan as they have been elsewhere so they do a lot of damage which is punching far above their numbers especially in suicide bombings they have done dozens of suicide bombings in Kabul and other cities which have been extremely devastating so those are the two you know the sort of the two bad guy factions and then on the other side you have Afghan forces you know you have military you have police you have on airforce and you have again advisors international advisers on the Afghan forces have been through a lot of difficulties a lot of ups and downs they've come under a lot of criticism for corruption for poor leadership for for for some really intrinsic problems there's a new leadership now in the Afghan forces which the Americans and NATO leaders have a lot of hope for on they seem to be doing a better job but the war still exist at a stalemate talks are not happening anymore and so there's not a pause in the fighting but there's certainly a pause in figuring out how to stop it well to understand what life is like for the the citizens of this country we look at your pictures I go back in time our first one is from twenty fifteen and this is during the election and the searching of a woman voters so you've chosen these what what does it say to us about the situation the time in the hopefulness around elections in the past that's that's so a woman in the C. I. because our own neighborhood of Kabul which is a large poor minority district which has received the brunt of the tax by both Taliban particularly by ISIS in in in the capital she was in a long line of of of women voters lining up being searched before going to the polls men were men but separately there and I think I think she was sort of startled by neat rather than by what she was doing I mean that the the she either has are a minority and COBOL is better educated and and and very politically committed on then a lot of other groups I mean they really are a lot of them have come back from Iran from long exile in Iran and so women among base yeah has our eyes are tended to be better educated to have more rights more I should say more encouragement from their families and their community to do things like vote on it to be out in public to be participating in public life in many parts of Afghanistan especially rural ones which are either Pashtun our project you don't see that as much so even though she's looking sort of disturb she represents a very important trend of you know women participating in public life in Afghanistan despite the dangers and her community has been attacked many many times including during elections for women and the cities are there more right is there a whirl or urban divide on how women are treated in society yes I mean there's a rural urban split sort of in every kind of sort of social and political sense I mean women in the capital and in provincial capitals in large cities women tend to go there either to have jobs or to get education or because their families want them to be more involved in things there are a lot of things that they can do women can work in ministries women can teach school women can you know women have more accepting roles in urban society in Afghanistan no matter what their ethnic background in village life and many parts of the country they are still very circumscribed by culture and society and what they can do in many parts of the country they still do not leave home without being fully covered including their face and without having a male relative at their side which means their lives are very very circumscribed in many parts of the country the culture still does not accept that women to go to school after they reach the age of puberty many most of Afghan society now except that they should go to school as young girls but once they reach the age of puberty which in that society is considered cage of marriage or almost the age of marriage or certainly the age of being betrothed then in many cases they are taken out of school next photograph also has our women now this is twenty sixteen and it's titled women morning and a couple graveyard yes that was particularly haunting place just geographically if you look at it this is sort of the very very very far southwestern edge of Kabul which is right on the edge of the high desert and those women are and with some children are participating in in the morning after it there was a a terrible suicide bombing this was in August two thousand sixteen there was a peaceful protest among young has our leaders and students and others that had to do with basic rights it had to do with it electrical our access it had to do over the right variety of of complaints that the community had and there were you know thousands and thousands gathered at a giant traffic circle in Kabul and there was a suicide bombing on there which is attributed to the Islamic state in which I believe eighty were killed.

"Is coming up special guest rock and roll hall of fame legend with the mad dog Lopez in the studio with me and we talked a little bruise movies blinded by the lights all written about vanity stars in a movie we'll be talking about the first I is an incredible story they came out of New Brunswick and Charlie credible from a is on with me here Charlie how you doing I'm good Steve how are you I you know what I'm great but now you are the editor and publisher of New Brunswick today you would drag out of the hell trickle tell on August third if you refuse to stop video recording April Ryan from CNN she's making a speech during the New Jersey parents summit you were invited to be there everything everything's going along fine I saw the video and it makes no sense to me that they would even be such a problem but can you can you take me through what happened did give me your thoughts at this point sure sure yeah I was unusual and unexpected you know unfortunate incident everything was cope ascetic for the first couple hours I was at the event it was part of a no three days three day long summit and this was kind of advertised as the main highlight was that April Ryan was going to be there spew giving the keynote speech she is of course a White House correspondent for you know past four presidents past couple decades and yeah it's not every day somebody like that comes to the city of New Brunswick so we're local publication here I you know assigned story to report a road to a nice little preview of the event and I you know had had nothing to do that night so I said I I'd like to attend I RST peed I followed all the you know the procedures are or you know all the request they made I I've checked in with the proper person I asked where it was okay to set up my camera and like I said had a it was a fine event for the first couple hours I got you know other people speeches on video without any problem but just as is Ryan was being introduced somebody was apparently her security guard came up to me and started questioning who I was and you know what my camera doing here and explain to you know for the press you know authorized to be here went through the proper channels and I thought that was gonna be the end of it but this fellow came back and you know threaten to take the camera down for me if I didn't take it down and you know I didn't didn't take kindly to that like I you know declined said you know you're not gonna give me your name and tell me why I can't film I'm not going to stop in and you know one thing led to another he just grabbed the camera and and bounced he left the room and that that camera is not cheap so I had no choice but to put the follow the cameras so I went to to the lobby of the shall which is here in downtown New Brunswick and place I did many many times and you know is said Hey this guy stole my camera give me back my camera and eventually was able to to to to retrieve it from him but you know he wasn't it wasn't it wasn't over for him you know that that point I was ready to leave and just you know get out of there but he you know he didn't want to be filmed in the lobby and I wanted to make sure I got a an image of him because he refused to give his name and his you know taken my camera running I wanted to make sure I got a good good shot of him so doing that in the lobby with trying to manipulate the camera on top of the tripod while all this is going on and he's in my face you know sticking his hand in the camera and hitting the microphone you know I'm I'm worried about my physical safety but also the camera you know being damaged so I I kind of sneak off you know get a little bit away from him get some space and the chase me down grab my my left arm and twisted it behind my back and it almost like a police officer might to put me in a compliance hold and kept you know showing me forward to get me out of the lobby of the hotel where is hotel security while this is going on or where are the people from you know from the New Jersey parents summit why isn't somebody stepping in to interfere and you don't what gives his body guard the right to put it to put his hands on you in any instance in any case yes the answer though the latter question nothing he had no authority to be touching me at all you know this is a an event where the you know the organizer's rented you know a room a ballroom but they didn't rent a lobby it doesn't work for the hotel and you know do anything wrong exactly I'm I'm allowed to be in the lobby and I'm allowed to record people in New Jersey you're allowed to record any conversation that you're a part of and I often do that to protect myself and you know to make sure that that that I get quotes right when I'm quoting people in my articles and stuff like that so of course you know he's he's got no right to touch my camera or me but he did anyway and thankfully it's on video and and you know you're the hotel security was yeah there was no security officers there at the time I did ask you know I did I ask for security to come over because I was concerned wanted to document what was going on but they they didn't make it until after I already got ejected and yeah do want to thank the hotel for preserving that footage though that video is really something but you know what what's up with that why did you take hotel security for so long why did The New Jersey parents summit not step up to people you know who are in charge of the event they knew you with their you a clearance to be there and why has in April Ryan open the math and what is this when I speak I don't have news covering my speech she's a she's a reporter if anybody she should understand this if anybody she should welcome the event that somebody cares enough to want to cover what she has to say no yeah and I certainly this was not something where I was out together or anything like that you know I left the house that day I was a fan of hers I I said you know she's been doing this awhile maybe I can learn a thing or two and also our audience would probably be interested in what she has to say so I just wanted to get the full complete speech on video put it on our YouTube channel like we do with so many other events in the community and you know you figure that would be a welcome staying in out to put out the entire speech for all to see but for whatever reason she didn't want that and I do think it's certainly hypocritical and and you know just really really strange I try to live by the golden rule if you know I I treat people like I would want to be treated and and so I would never they obviously never do this to it another journalist now and you know what it's it's against the whole code of ethics as well you know as you outlined you know from the New Jersey chapter that you would you know that you would re tweeted out the words of which is again at the ninety professionals deciding fashion regionally thank you stop and and made a great statement to remind people that this is not okay well yeah it should never be okay but what gives a body guard the right to lay hands on anybody they have no more thought already if you're not committing a crime you're not a threat to the person they're protecting there should be no problem you know now what's your next move so on Monday morning I've filed three criminal charges against the the man his name is Joe Morris from Illinois and you know the charges were proved to the court found probable cause to issue a summons to Mister Morris and he will have to be arraigned in Superior Court I'm also exploring other options to hold ms Ryan accountable since she has not condemns this you know inappropriate illegal behavior of her employee so thanking yeah seeking an attorney seeking legal counsel to help with that are you going to sue it's possible I mean I would you know would rather not go go to go to court but you know its the type of thing where if there's no you know no response for ms Ryan forthcoming and and you know she's not you know being at least at least condemning the the actions of me whether she apologized to me or not is not the biggest deal but I think she has a lot of people that look up to her and she should do the right thing and you know like any other journalists that are you know like you're saying tonight don't you know don't support this is not okay you know it's and it's it's the right thing to do and I hope she will now make some statement to that effect but I haven't heard from her yet so you know definitely litigation is a possibility as one journalist who has been dissed by another journalist how does that make you feel you would figure if anybody she would get this hundred percent it's the type of thing that you know I may not have been doing it as many years as her I may not be on TV as often as her but you know I certainly you know I work with young journalists all the time I have the trained over a hundred reporters here at New Brunswick today and it's I always enjoyed being able to help you know people build their skills and you know make their you know advance their careers and and learn how to do this work and so I just yeah you know I would hope that journalists have been doing it for a long time will show some love to the younger folks who are they on the next generation for coming up in trying to to work in this very difficult industry is not not easy by any means and it's not usually not lucrative but people do it because it's important work and I think that you know like April Ryan should be encouraging other journalists and and you know giving them access you know maybe even more than just you know not throwing them out of the room but but one of the nicest Fasci given an interview or something like that yeah that's the type of way I would I would she could have easily just said listen you know that's not the time I will talk to you or if there was a problem but but they handle it the way she handled it I've got a hit traffic.

which is the military coup yelp lingo for being briefed on something but the people who are book read into these projects were selected for being willing to go along with a deep black criminal organization and the people who are called the white at like at most welcome with the topic of these notes from from doctor Davis and and others like many others like him but I personally grief were completely denied access to these projects I think when I first started sharing that the public and even the yokel public couldn't believe that would be true now we have a black and white the note that I can authenticate the the the just the of everything in those notes that he had gave us made from his conversation a couple our conversation with them Tom Wilson and and that in fact prior to my briefing the apple I had heard back from my three of my point of contact number would say Mabel commander will Miller who had then the go between the help that the freezing up and and that we had given a large dog the a a top secret document number which had not been declassified I had acquired as well as a lot of other McAuliffe actionable intelligence and so and Wilson thirty Makin inquired the before we had the meeting with after I get their permits on myself and a few other people and I heard back quite quickly that abba Wilson has is reported in these notes had been flat out denied access even though legally he was supposed to be able to be read into those project and on the first page of this document folks looking at that out of the third day this memo you know he he mentions the head of the defense intelligence agency which is a huge organization some of the I a but it's for the Pentagon billion and ammo I mean the general have to choose that also been denied access now it's a little muddled in those notes I think Eric got confused the briefing I did for that general Hughes who is the head of the defense intelligence agency with actually after and not at the same time as the three things that I did for at Wilson so this was called a standup briefing formal briefing at the Pentagon yeah we had to get clear to go through all the levels of security get in there and and to be in the conference room for animal Wilson who I think the public needs to understand with Jay to which is the head of intelligence for the joint chiefs of staff a major senior position in the Pentagon this would be the person who would put together the intelligence briefing for the joint chiefs of staff of the Pentagon and the fact that he had informed us prior to this the standup briefing I I did for him that he had been denied access was very disturbing but not surprising to me because you know the weird earlier I had spent two or three hours brief in the city director of the CIA on the problem and he also as well as president Clinton had been shoved aside and told basically we're not going to tell you anything and so I I learned from nineteen ninety two and ninety three until we did the public disclosure project and had a continuously confirm since then that the operation dealing with the clandestine but at a level beyond a normal special access project sap these are what are called use the app unacknowledged special act that project a term that is confirmed in use by at a mall Wilson in these notes and that's why you know what the the the documentary it in a couple years ago unacknowledged which is now had nearly three hundred million people around the world that white hold on a knowledge most people even they can spend their whole careers in the military don't know about the very existence of the youth that let me let me jump I will let me jump in real quick before we get to the break which is you are referring to this meeting right now it's the same meeting that is mentioned in the document leak and what I wanted to ask who set up that meeting was it you was a Wilson how did that meeting get set up at the Pentagon well my my military one of my military advisers back in the day was this commander Miller who had a top secret clearance but also been involved in some use that I he and I discussed the then and we third part back who he knew that needed have a need to know but who craps weren't being told the truth so he knew of of animal Wilson I think you work with them at some point earlier in his career and so he at the at mall if you would like to be briefed on the subject and he said yeah so I agreed to go up to Washington to do the pre fame and and so I was the guy to recomend for these projects which is kind of weird because I'm a civilian emergency room doctor but he would die again all this stuff in a very deep level and and so I'm sitting there at the Pentagon briefing someone who is by all rights should absolutely no this this and so this is going through the Looking Glass I mean if you talk about the completely an upside down situation I have never held a security clearance I don't have one now I've never gotten a penny from the US government although I certainly have paid millions of dollars to them but I what I found was that there were so many people who were really good folks who are responsible for our security and I have been to see the lights on these projects and I think this is a moment of compassion people have to understand if you've read this memo you can see the anger and all here in from alma Wilson being in that position and and and if you read the stock Mitchell see that when he kept pushing on it he would threaten with having a demotion and having a a couple of stars taken off of his position and I I know that that happened because you know there's a number of cases where people I've dealt with that once they made it made enquiries that that were to think we're literally threatened with that or worse that I've worked with and I think before the break I want people to think about one thing for a moment this is what a memo confirming one meeting but I hate them over the last almost thirty years twenty seven years over nine hundred and fifty meeting place someday I'll have to tell the story but is is that I've been telling warning the public for many years that there is this program dealing with UFOs in the government national not international it is criminal it is the largest criminal organization in the world and their operations have violated the constitution and the rule of law and we can prove it in a court case so that was the foundation of the disclosure project a lot of people realize that the how did you get all the men and women to come forward I told them that third there nondisclosure agreements were null and void because the underlying operation was itself a criminal enterprise and I can prove it so that's why people say why hasn't the FBI arrested you why hasn't this I could because you know we would immediately I have some attorneys on speed dial this would be the biggest constitutional crisis in the United States they don't want to go there we can crew at that my weapon states here that this program was so illegally Ron and top secret that they were denying him act that even though he was legally required to be overseen and and it it states that much in the before we get to the break when I called you about the documents and about this meeting I said it was in April of nineteen ninety seven you immediately said was that the one with Edgar Mitchell and I said yes and and that was interesting how the document come from you didn't even know you had read the document up to that point how did Edgar Mitchell come to attend the meeting well he and I have been working together on some projects and he was really in the nineties just learning about a lot of these issues and he had founded the amplitude of no where a client that that studies consciousness and and things of this sort it was an Apollo astronauts you know the sick man to walk on the moon and so I began to share information with them and invite them to some of the early project starlight you think now those were the predecessor to the global disclosure movement I started in two thousand one project starlight was the name of the private creaking who were doing when we were still hopeful that either the president or the Congress or someone in the official standing here or abroad would come forward and so Edgar Mitchell was learning about this so I invited him personally at as my guest the meeting he was not there to greet the ad by with that to do the stand up briefing for him but Edgar was there to learn and to confirm that he had heard from other sources that all this with the gentlemen and was there in a support role with say in terms of encouraging the adults get to the bottom of it to do something about it when you look at the documents now in their entirety there is our information in there that only you and who is in the small circle of people would know and clothing who attended that meeting is everything is factual as far as you know that only a small circle in other words could the documents have been hoaxed her fate no these aren't poster fake because I mean I know too many of the specific details of the meeting because the meeting that I was party to setting up and was the main grief for for the apple so now it's substantially correct and not been edited but all the pricing either a few things that are kind of garbled like on the first page where it talks about general shoes I mean that was a later thing that wasn't involved in that at all right and there's some things around the Brach background that are missing because obviously they do in the off the discussion about it I would be a brief meeting back the car right but a potentially correct is as well you know the name of the number the offices and the whole process the apple went through in the to try to get to the bottom and and the fact that he found out that is these use the apps the.

think the public needs to understand was J. two which is the head of intelligence for the joint chiefs of staff a major senior position in the Pentagon this would be the person who would put together the intelligence briefing for the joint chiefs of staff of the Pentagon and the fact that he had informed us prior to this the standup briefing I I did for him yeah he had been denied access was very disturbing but not surprising to me because you know several years earlier I had spent two or three hours briefing the fitting director of the CIA on the problem and he also as well as president Clinton had been shoved aside and told basically we're not going to tell you anything and so I I learned from nineteen ninety two and ninety three in total we did the public disclosure project and had a continuously confirm since then that the operation dealing with that for clandestine but at a level beyond a normal special access project sap these are what are called use the app unacknowledged special act that project a term that is confirmed in use by at a mall Wilson in these notes and that's why you know with them the documentary it in a couple years ago unacknowledged which is now had nearly three hundred million people around the world white hold on a knowledge most people even they can spend their whole careers in the military don't know about the very existence of the use that I mean I mean I will let me jump in real quick before we get to the break which is you are referring to this meeting right now it's the same meeting that is mentioned in the document leak and what I wanted to ask who set up that meeting was it you was a Wilson how did that meeting get set up at the Pentagon well my my military one of my military advisers back in the day was this commander Miller who had a top secret clearance but also been involved in some new staff I he and I discussed the then and we Sir talk about who he knew that needed had a need to know but who craps weren't being told the truth so he knew of of animal Wilson I think you have worked with him at some point earlier in his career and so he and the atmo if you would like to be briefed on the subject and he said yeah so I agreed to go up to Washington to do the briefing them and so I was the guy to recomend for these projects which is kind of weird because I'm a civilian emergency room doctor but who is Doug and all this stuff in a very deep level and and so I'm sitting there at the Pentagon briefing someone who is by all rights should absolutely no this this and so this is going through the Looking Glass I mean I do talk about those completely an upside down situation I have never held a security clearance I don't have one now I've never gotten a penny from the US government although I certainly have paid millions of dollars to them but I what I found was that there were so many people who were really good folks who are responsible for our security and I have been to see the lights on these projects and I think this is a moment of compassion people have to understand if you read this memo you can see the anger and also here in from admiral Wilson be in that position and and and if you read the stock Mitchell see that when he kept pushing on it he was threatened with having a demotion and having a a couple of stars taken off of his position and I I know that that happened because you know there's a number of cases where people I've dealt with that once they made it made inquires that that were to I think we're literally threatened with that or worse that I've worked with and I think before the break I want people to think about one thing for a moment this is what a memo and from the one meeting but I hate them over the last almost thirty years twenty seven years over nine hundred and fifty meeting place someday I'll have to tell the story but is is that I did Helen warning the public for many years that there is this program dealing with UFOs in the government national not international it is criminal it is the largest criminal organization in the world and their operations have violated the constitution and the rule of law and we can prove it in a court case so that was the foundation of the disclosure project a lot of people realize that the how did you get all the men and women to come forward I told them that third there nondisclosure agreements were null and void because the underlying operation was itself a criminal enterprise and I can prove it so that's why people say why hasn't the FBI arrested you why hasn't the fact that the calls you know we would immediately I have some attorneys on speed dial this would be the biggest constitutional crisis in the history nice they they don't want to go there we can crew and that my Wilson states here that this program was so illegally Ron and top secret that they were denying him after that even though he was legally required to be overseen and and it it states that much in the before we get to the break when I called you about the documents and about this meeting I said it was in April of nineteen ninety seven you immediately said was that the one with Edgar Mitchell and I said yes and and that was interesting how the document confirm you didn't even know you had read the document up to that point how did Edgar Mitchell come to attend the meeting well he and I have been working together on some projects and he was really in the nineties just learning about a lot of these issues and he had founded the amplitude and know what a client that that studies consciousness and and things of this sort it with Apollo astronauts you know the six man to walk on the moon and so I began to share information with them and invite them to some of the early project starlight three three now those were the predecessor to the global disclosure movement but I started in two thousand one project starlight was the name of the private greetings we were doing we were still hopeful that either the president or the Congress or someone in the official standing here or abroad would come forward and so Edgar Mitchell was learning about this so I invited him personally at as my guest to the meeting he was not there are two three the ad mall I was asked to do the stand up briefing for him but Edgar was there to learn and to confirm that he had heard from other sources that all this was legitimate and was there in a support role let's say in terms of encouraging the adults get to the bottom of it to do something about it when you look at the documents now in their entirety there is our information in there that only you and who is in the small circle of people would know and clothing who attended that meeting is everything is factual as far as you know that only a small circle in other words could the documents have been hoaxed her fate no these aren't poster fake because I mean I know too many of the specific details of the meeting because the meeting that I was party to setting up in was the main grief for for the apple so no it's substantially correct and nothing in it it's at all surprising either a few things that are kind of garbled like on the first page where it talks about general shoes I mean that was a later thing it wasn't involved in that at all right and there's something going on the black background that are missing because obviously they did do an exhaustive discussion about it I with the brief meeting back what car right but if a financially correct is as well you know the names of of a number of the offices and the whole process with the apple went through enough to try to get to the bottom and and the fact that.
