Democracy now democracy now dot org. I'm Amy Goodman. This is breaking with convention. The battle over the future of the US postal services intensifying for weeks. Democrats. Have accused the trump administration and the new postmaster general Louis Joy of sabotaging the postal service in the lead up to the election when a record number of mayland ballots expected to be cast on Saturday, the Democrat led House approved a bill to give the Postal Service, twenty, five billion dollars, and to stop the joy for making more changes to the postal service which have already led to long delays in processing and delivering. Now, this is democratic. Congresswoman Rashida to leave Michigan. Let it be clear. This administration is waging an authoritarian campaign to sabotage this election by manipulating the postal service to suppress our boats and they are threatening the livelihood of our postal workers are seniors, veterans, and so many more in the process. This is not a conspiracy theory. This is fascism. We will not stand for this now or ever. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is refusing to take up the house bill do joy who is a major donor to trump is testifying before the house oversight committee today Saturday's vote came on the same day protests were held at over eight hundred post offices across the country to condemn the actions of joy who became postmaster general in June, and still holds investments worth up to seventy five million dollars in assets in competitors to the US post office or contractors with. It during a Senate hearing Friday to joy claimed the cost cutting measures. He's implemented have nothing to do with the election and said the postal services quote fully capable of delivering mail in ballots on time Senator Gary Peterson Michigan questioned joy about his refusal to restore recently disconnected mouth sorting machines. You'll be bringing back any mail sorting machines that have been removed since you become postmaster general any of those comeback there's no intention to do that. Then not needed sir. So you will not bring back any processors not needed. Sir. While postmaster joy is refusing to reconnect sorting machines postal workers in Dallas Texas and Tacoma. Washington. Have defied orders and reconnected the machines. This all comes more questions are being raised over the role of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the post office shakeup the New York. Times. Reports MNUCHIN met with two Republican members of the Postal Services Board of governors in early February. And press them to select a postmaster general to push trump's agenda we're joined now by Philip Rubio history professor north, Carolina A and t state university author of undelivered from the great postal strike of one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two, the manufactured crisis of the US Postal Service prior to becoming a history professor movie. Oh, carried mail for the postal. Service for twenty years. Has Great to have you with US professor Rubio. If you can talk about the latest developments, the Senate hearing on Friday, the bill that was passed and what's expected to happen today with House hearing on this isn't just Democrats accusing. The White House and the Post Office of making it difficult or delaying the mail so that mail ballots won't get in on time that was clearly stated by the Post. Office itself saying that they did not think they would be able to handle the smell. Though do joy told a very different story when he testified before the Senate Friday. Best correct and this postmaster general really does have a credit credibility problem came into office just two months ago. With claims that he was going to run it like a business incorrect passing efficiencies and he was going to on first of all clean. House would replacing twenty three senior management positions and cutting overtime. Banning, late leaving from mail processing plants also from from stations. So. Slamming the male dominated effect and added to that pulling up thousands of Blue Mail collection boxes, and decommissioning. These don't meals sorting machines. And then denying that and then admitting that but saying it's not that much of an effect, but the damage has been done. I think he's demoralized postal workers. I think he has discouraged a lot of voters who are hoping to vote by mail to vote safely and securely because of the pandemic and. He has also made I think people as postal consumers discouraged by promising that Gi will resume on decommissioning these machines. And these other policies of his after the election. Have you seen anything like this before for example, the. Post Office in Tacoma Washington in Dallas Texas. Reconnecting letter sorting machines that were disconnected under orders from the postmaster general. Well, I can't think of anything like that but. We, have to, remember. Hand these are isolated incidents, but on the other hand, they are revealing of what postal workers have always done in the past taken measures into their own hands, and it's a promise of what might happen in the future that is a postal workers because we have to remember postal workers are really the heart of what I would call the service culture that's still alive in the Post Office K. as opposed to the business culture of just trying to cut costs. And so you know. To to actually take a risk at being fired for insubordination to plugging those machines back in, we might see. That takes a great effort in we might see something like postal workers defying. Bans on overtime to make sure that balance gets through. I want to go to David C Williams the former postal service inspector general former vice chair of the poster board of Governors in his opening remarks to the House progressive. Caucus last week. Williams. Criticized Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Recently resigned as the. Chairman of Bozell Board of Governors from the became clear to me the administration was politicizing also service. With treasury secretary is the lead shooter for the White House in that effort. I statutes Treasury was made responsible for providing postal service for the line of credit. Treasury using responsibility to make demands that I believe. Would turn the postal service into a political tool unions long history as a native political public infrastructure. Can you respond to that professor fellow? Well. David. C. Williams. Was the watchdog and he was one of two watchdog steal the other biard Ronald Stroman who also while he under pressure. So they were looking out for the postal service and they they both resigned because they sought being politicized. You know the Postal Service are the post office. That we've had around for two, hundred, forty, five years. Most of that time. Was it political institution but we see that kind of partisan. Intervention Of course, with the exception of Andrew Jackson in the spoils system with with hiring, but as far as manipulating the postal service and driving into the ground. So I'm glad to see him testifying I'm glad to see Ron Stroman. For Record. Of covering dismember. Testifying. Are, you surprised that the enormous response across the country, the outcry with the postal service event like a ninety one percent positive rating. which delivers drugs, pharmaceuticals to veterans to people who aren't veterans so relied on I mean the now looking for alternatives to the US because they're concerned drugs won't get to veterans on time that the are you concerned the damage has already been done but surprise that joy would say, okay, we'll hold off on changes until after the election. Now that's really something because it's saying to people all across the country. If you stick with this administration, we're going to cut the post office then. No. But I'm not surprised by anything that postmaster general to joys saying because apparently he's telling Different people what he thinks they want to hear and right now the outrage. As forced him to back down, but he is making promises that that he will resume. Essentially, dismantling the postal service which. Was instituted in nineteen seventy one after the great post strike of nineteen seventy and the idea of being we're going to work or to create a non-political institution, and it's going to be a hybrid government agencies slash business. When he assumes that he was given was a mandate to take it further in the direction and you know though unintentionally and ironically both he and trump I think have. Dramatized how the perils of postal privatization, partisan intervention, and driving our post office into the ground that we don't have to accept this that we shouldn't have to accept this week shouldn't have to take it. I'm not surprised that there has been popular protests popular outrage because that's that's something that people learn from the springtime with George Floyd protests and. So when you see people. Not, getting their medications when you see people not getting their mail on time. Of course, they're going to speak up and they've learned that the protests can change things and I think that's that's force congress to be. Say. It's encouraged Democrats in Congress to put this on the agenda, but it's still not enough but Democrats in the House and Senate are doing is the the best they can do to keep putting pressure with investigations and? Putting Bills Ford that the American people will hopefully respond to. president trump tweeted I'm going to go back and look at what he tweeted. On Sunday. So now the Democrats are using mail drop boxes, which are a voter security disaster among other things that make it possible for person to vote multiple times also who controls them, they played him Republican or Democrat areas. They are not cove sanitized a big fraud. Now, twitter has flagged the tweet for violating twitter rules about civic election integrity he is suggesting you will get covid drop your ballot into. A ballot parks. So, this is just more distraction. that. That trump and his administration. Are Doing. Is they've done a round so many other issues, but around the postal service and What what is defying the see that? Lots and lots of people including politicians are pushing back against. Those are not being satisfied with the joys responses and are rebounding trump's claims. But you know what what all of this does is to what's intended to do is to distract and discourage and what we have to do as individuals as well as a collective body is to remember that we we do have a right to vote. We have a right to vote safely. The Postal Service is mandated to provide universal service whatever that service is even if more than half of US vote by mail to make sure that enough over time is in effect enough postal workers are deployed to get all those ballots counted for for people to register to vote early to avoid in person if they feel safe enough doing that but to. But to vote and to to keep putting pressure on the postmaster general and can there anything legally be done? I mean you've got the bill that was passed in the House now the House hearing today. Not Clear. What will happen in the Senate though it doesn't look like Mitch McConnell we'd take it up though there is bipartisan attack on trump and joy. Of course, it starts at the top for going after the postal service so much. So that trump inexplicably after attacking it for so long sent out a tweet last week saying save the post office. Right from me from himself. And he and his wife and other administration members also vote by mail and they are also encouraging. Republicans. To vote by mail how however you vote people need to remember that they do have a right to vote in the do have the right to expect that the the postmaster general who even though it's not a very strong political position has a lot of power and can. Reverse these policy changes can also work better with the states to make sure that the ballots are counted but in the end it will probably come down to a pulsa workers who make sure that. You know that the male does get through just as we always did well, Philip Ruby, I want to thank you for joining us key that you said, just as we always did because before being a historian, you're a US postman for twenty years now, history professor at North Carolina and t State University author of undelivered from the great postal strike of nineteen seventy, two manufactured crisis of the US. Postal Service. Next up, we'll look at the arrest of trump's former campaign manager, Steve Bannon, and others unfrosted charges connected to the we build the wall effort. We'll find out what that is stay with us. Floyd another brick in the wall this is democracy. Now we're breaking with convention. I'm Amy Goodman as a Republican. National Convention begins this week a six close associated president trump now faces criminal charges by the Department of Justice Trump's former campaign manager chief strategist Steve. Ben's accused of defrauding donors to a private effort to build a wall along the Mexican border he was arrested Thursday, by us, postal police aborted. Billionaires Twenty eight. Million Dollar Yacht off the coast of Connecticut and indictment by the Southern District of New York Legis Bannon and three others the nonprofit we build the wall siphon hundreds of thousands of dollars of donations into their own pockets to support their lavish lifestyles then and had promoted the group as a volunteer organization. One of the biggest donors to the project was a seven year old boy who set up a hot chocolate stand and raised as much as twenty eight thousand dollars. BANNON pleaded not guilty. Thursday and was released after posting five million dollars bond at the White House reporters trump about the charges. I haven't been dealing with him at all. I know nothing about the project other than I didn't like when I read about it i. didn't like it. I said this is for government. This is a private people and it sounded to me like showboating and I think I let my opinion be very strongly stated at the time I didn't like it. It was show boating and maybe looking for funds, but you have to see what happens. I think it's a very sad thing for. Mr. Bannon. Surprising meanwhile on CBS face the nation Sunday former FBI director James Comey. To head the southern district of New York which filed the charges said Bannon is in a quote world of trouble to bury serious fraud case with a huge amount of money stolen from innocent the domes Americans who thought they were giving money to support the president's wall on the Mexican border and instead it was stolen that will drive up potential punishments for Mr Ben and his Co conspirators and you know he's in trouble because the indictment lays it out in such detail including. From Tex- if you're Steve, Bannon your his lawyers, you reading this saying I'm going down here facing charges along with Ben and as we build the wall founder Brian Qualifies Iraq war veteran who was awarded a purple heart lost his legs in. Iraq the postal inspection service said, the case quote should serve as a warning to other fraudsters that no one's above the law not even a disabled. War veteran or a millionaire political strategist unquote not charged is Fisher. Industry's CEO Tommy. Fisher who is contracted to build the three mile stretch of wall for the group directly along the banks of Rio Grande near mission Texas near the Mexico border as a showcase project Fisher went onto secure one point seven billion dollars in federal border wall contracts and claimed he was building the quote, Lamborghini? Of Walls. Investigation by PROPUBLICA last month shows the private world projects already eroding and could be in danger of falling into the river there story prompted trump to tweet on July twelfth quote I disagreed with doing this very small tiny section of wall and tricky area by a private group which raise money by adds it was only done to make me look bad he said. This was around the same time of a dramatic show town show showdown when the trump administration ousted Jeffrey. Berman the US attorney in the Southern District of New York whose office went on to file these charges against Bannon. Well, for more, we're joined by two reporters with PROPUBLICA. And the Texas. Tribune. Investigative. Unit who worked on the story in one of their reports we build the walls founder Brian. Colfax actually bragged. About his ties to trump in Houston, we're joined by parallel Treviso, and Austin were joined by Lexi Churchill. We welcome you vote to democracy now Lexi. Let's begin with you. Explain what took place on Thursday the significance of these charges against Bannon and three others. Yeah definitely, thanks so much for having me So as you said, the US Southern District of New York is charging these four men who have been involved with the group to varying degrees with conspiracy to commit wire fraud money laundering, and as you stated, the indictment is very in depth about you know the matter in which that they have used a unnamed nonprofit to wire a portion of the money that this group raised last year a through public funds in public. To us as their own personal means in a that in part went to a boat, call the warfighter that has been spread widely and shared widely on the CEO Branko. Phases. Instagram and you know this is really just. It's it's interesting because we started our reporting with the main question as to answer where has this money been going and doesn't answer that as a whole but it does give us some insight into where part of this has been going and you know the little that we know about it is that this group initially at raised around twenty, five million dollars and they had used around six to eight million on the first project that they did. And only about five percent of a forty, two million dollar project that was their second one that we have reported on as you stated earlier. So that just doesn't quite add up to the twenty, five million and this indictment has given us some insight into where some of that money has gone but you know it's not been able to find out the timing of this is just unbelievable I mean you have bar pushing out Jeffrey Berman. He did not expect the pushback from Burma N- not then being able to put in the guy he wanted to. As the US attorney. And then immediately you have trump saying something about this project that he doesn't support it. This is at the time they couldn't. Shape the prosecutor's office and the way they wanted to, and clearly this prosecution was moving head not clear if our was trying to stop this prosecution so that when Bannon was arrested trump said, you can look at my comments weeks ago I was against this project but it was only when they weren't able to put the people in they wanted to in the US Attorney's office. and. As you mentioned, the president had tweeted about a month ago after our initial reporting on the state of this, how this actual project is standing up which? Is Great that he did not like this project he did not support it and he further those comments trying to distance himself on Thursday when asked about it but you know there there is a clear connection between the president and this group, of course, Steve Bannon, his former campaign adviser and a White House adviser for some period of time. There's no submerging that relationship He's also been involved with former secretary of state Chris Kobuk. Of Kansas for several years and he served the group's general counsel actually and an outspoken advocate. We have done some reporting that has also connected the president to members of the group itself including the CEO Brian Cole Fish who last year in an interview said that they had a direct connection to the president through Crisco Bach and others that he approved of what they were doing and they supported it. Amanda Shade the company's CEO CFO sorry also posted a photo with trump last year saying that she was able to meet with him and speak extensively about the project and that he had even told her that they should bid for the Ol- wall I mean you have this very important point that Chris Co back? Yes. The former Kansas secretary state fierce anti-immigrant. Prominent trump supporter. Serving as the adviser as you said to, we build the wall. WHO. Said I talked with the president and the We build the wall effort came up co told The New York Times. The president said, the project has my blessing and you can tell the media that. So trump is saying singing a very different tune right now now, while the media covered this, you know this is extremely significant bannon being arrested. I wanted to turn to parallel Treviso who is on the ground there in Texas because what the media didn't cover as much is what this wall is, what dig get built what happened to it parallel A again, thank you for. A very little had been built. They have. Built, roughly half a mile west of Paso in New Mexico last. Year. That was on private land, and then the that was as Lexi said, that was fully funded by we build wall which was up to eight million according to to report, and then the further West in tech guessed east in Texas they. The roughly three miles along the river, which is the portion of the private while that we've been focusing on and that project was mostly funded by Fisher which the that you mentioned previously with support from we build the wall and so initially. We build the wall touted that as the as their second project after story and Mr Trump tweeted that he disagreed with the project. He initially tried to distance himself from from the project saying that was not their wall it was Fisher project they just had they just donated to it, and then ultimately they went back and did say that was actually fake media reports and everything was fine and and and went back to kind of owning that project were there contrition or support to that project? And Fischer is parallel. So tiny Fisher is. The CEO Fisher Industries and a lot of subsidiaries. He's a builder who for a while was trying to get border wall contracts and he was not getting anywhere and then he he started appearing on unconservative media outlets and kind of. Trying to to get to to the president, they say, and so he he partnered with with build the wall to build the Sunland, Park New Mexico Sackman, and then the one in Texas, and they say that they wanted to show the government how the private industry could build the border wall much better than the government while the governor had not been built had not been able to build right along the river they would show them how could be done cheaper and faster, and so critics say that he used those projects as kind of a showcase project to Ben, tell to the administration and get the government. Contracts that you mentioned earlier since since stories, he's not gotten a couple of more. So now it's not closer to two billion dollars in federal contracts for border wall. Fencing. In Arizona again, how much fishers gotten now it's now it's about two billion. To billion. Bailing. He's he's company has also been awarded the largest contract ever for border wall, which was one point, two, eight, billion, almost one, point, three, billion, and Alan. Two of them including that one that I just mentioned have been awarded while in the investigation or audit is going after he got the first border while contract four, four, hundred, million Congressman Bennie Thompson call for a dod audit of that contract to ensure that there had not been undue influence or improper influence from the trump administration, and that's still ongoing and talk about the wall part that was built and the environmental regulations that were gotten around and what this means in the area. Yes. especially the one in south Texas. It's a it's a very tricky haven as Mr. Trump said. So it's it's very close to to the river and there's a reason why there's not a lot of. Border, Wall building going on, they're usually the government builds further inland on the Levy, which has caused in own problems because you end up dissecting properties farmland, even cemeteries, and so this this segment of the three miles of the wall is bill very, very close to the river which experts have told us. You're always going to have a problem with erosion and soon after the Mister Fisher, completed his roughly three miles, you start seeing little belly send gashes in different areas of the fence and to be clear Mister Fisher and his attorney have both dismissed those concerns that there's normal part of erosion after you have a project like that and that they'll, they'll continue fix it and be responsible for it. But. What we saw after Hannah's is that those gullies and gushes became huge cracks in some instances it was waist deep in. I describe it in story you can't see deep baynes going into the river and what are experts hydrologist engineers tell us is that the problem is that you can it can became. The, stabilize the foundation of the fans, and it's not that in my fault tomorrow. But if this continues because of the sand and because of the kind of. Loamy sand under. The bank that you could have segments of topple into the river, which can cause a lot of problems and I'll just add as well that area is. Controlled by a binational commission boundary. Commission. Because you WanNa make sure that whatever you do on either side of the US or Mexico border is not going to impact the other side. So in this case, they have found that at least one segment of of the three mile fence. Can can deflect too much water onto the Mexican side when there's flooding and so that's also currently being. Litigated. I also wanted to talk about people involved with this whether or not they're indicted last year Aljazeera English. Hossan interviewed Eric Prints the founder of the mercenary firm Blackwater Prince defended his involvement in the We build the wall fundraising project. This is housing questioning her prints. You're part of a group of high profile trump supporters including Steve, bannon sheriff David Clarke, and others who are planning on raising private money to build a wall along the US Mexico border you even have a gofundme page. What I don't get though is I'm pretty sure I heard Donald trump say that Mexico would be paying for the wall. Don't discount Mexico. Actually paying for the wall I. Think most of us have been the last chapters written on that mark my words so Mexico will pay for the wall so them why you fundraising. Both ways there's A raise money. Because people are frustrated. They're sick of frustrated that the president get Mexico to pay for the wall two years into his presidency. So that's Maddie. Hasson questioning era prince. Two thousand. Nineteen live streaming fundraiser Steve Bannon. Dated Joked Brian Cole Fash was embezzling the wall money. Stephen K. Bannon and Brian coalfires. Welcome back. This is Steven K Bannon. We're off the coast of Santro pay in southern France and the Mediterranean we're on the million dollar yacht Brian co-founder Branko fives he took all that money from build the wall. No, we're actually in Sunland park the Mexico. So, there you have Brian Qualify John, Steve Bannon, both indicted Let's end with Lexi Churchill the significance of what they're saying before that era prince, the founder of Blackwater. Yeah Yeah I mean it is very startling to joke about something like that. That is true and that they're now facing charges for. And I guess what I'd like to end on is this has been the outstanding question and because of how the group is structured as a nonprofit corporation, you know we have not had a lot of these answers about where the money is going and what has been, what has been used for so far. And when we reached out to Brian Cole facial about this, he said that we would need to wait for those answers to come in once the group filed their annual report. Nine Ninety version of it. So we're eagerly awaiting that to see. What further information will be able to learn. So finally, what happens to this wall that was already built now that these men? have been indicted and you've got Fisher Industries Again Tommy Fisher getting something like two billion dollars to build the wall Fisher industries the two other brothers. David, and Michael One was put in prison for child pornography. The other went to jail for. Environmental and workplace violations among other things and not paying taxes, etc.. Yeah. That's a good question and it's worth noting that Fisher industries does have a history of violations like the ones you mentioned a lot. EPA environmental violation regulations as well as Michika, workplace safety regulations and I think the biggest thing is that this investigation is still ongoing into the initial contract. They received for four hundred million dollars from the federal government, and we're waiting to see what the results of that were as well if there was any undue influences. We will continue to follow this. Of course, we want to thank lexi Churchill and perilla Treviso the reporters with Propublica Texas Tribune Investigative Unit, and we'll link to your pieces profit. That finance to private border wall is now the focus of a corruption case. Next look at president trump's embrace of the far right queuing on conspiracy theory. Ahead of today's Republican National Convention while the FBI sees Cunanan is a domestic terrorist threat. Trump has taken a different approach stay with us. Corner in the middle of the day. Zee. On. About of these dirty streets in. On route. So fast, manageable and just so damn. Much Janssen baton hitching around. Game. Turned it in the five. Bullet train. Justice towns, earl, it was announced last night that Justin townes earle has passed away at the age of thirty eight. He's the son of the great folk singer Steve Earle. This is democracy. Now we're breaking with convention I'm Amy Goodman as the Republican National Convention Begins Tonight Insurers North. Carolina questions are mounting over president trump's decision to openly embrace the far-right conspiracy theory known as Cunanan the theory claims among other things that trump is secretly at war with the deep state cabal of Satan worshipping elites who run a child sex trafficking operation over the years. Trump is repeatedly re tweeted messages from supporters of the conspiracy theory. But last week trump talked publicly about the movement for the first time when asked. We'll let her know much about the movement other than I understand they like me very much. Which I appreciate that these are people that don't like seeing. What's going on and places like Portland and places like Chicago and New York and other. Cities and states. And I've heard these are people that love our country and they just don't like seeing it. So I don't know really anything about it other than. They, do supposedly like me. frosted the theory that this belief that you are secretly saving the world from this site. Cold pedophile and cannibals does ask sound like something you are behind I haven't I haven't heard that but. Is that supposed to be a bad thing or? If I can help save the world from problems. Willing to do it, that's president trumping question by an NBC reporter, the White House trump's remarks came just a week after supporter of Cunanan Marjorie Taylor Green won the Republican Primary Georges Heavily Republican fourteenth, Congressional district last year the F. B. I. Warn Cunanan and other conspiracy theories pose a domestic terror threat we're joined now by Angela kerosone president of media matters the Media Watch group monitoring, right wing misinformation in the US media. Wow Angelo lay this out for US I. Mean it goes beyond what I said this. Idea bringing the Pizzeria Hillary Clinton at. Yeah. Sure. Queueing on is sort of like a phase two of a conspiracy theory that I think a lot of people would be familiar with which started during the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign called gate and that theory was that Hillary? Clinton among others we're running a child sex trafficking ring that of a basement of a pizza parlor in Washington DC and one of the individuals who believe in this conspiracy theory actually went to investigate it himself. and. brought. A gun fired some shots. The pizza probably doesn't even have a basement thankfully nobody was hurt but that person was arrested and what happened. Was that people still believed in that theory they still believe that there was actually a child sex trafficking ring being run by Hillary Clinton. It's just that they had the wrong pizza place and so when trump took office shortly after one of the things that happened is this entity is individual named q identifies Q. started dropping these secret clues onto fortune in a message boards that members. Readers would consume and tried to decipher and decode and. That basically has metastasized into the domestic terror threat that you earlier, which is that now you have a fairly widespread belief amongst largely conservatives that Democrats the media and. Parts, of the government are operating together in cahoots to take down. Donald. Trump. And that the reason, they want to take down Donald trump because he's the only person that is trying to stop their child sex trafficking ring, and the reason why they run this child sex trafficking ring according to these believers. They're either satis psychic vampires or inter dimensional demons. There's a lot of disagreement within the movement as to what is actually driving this need for child sex trafficking but but a big piece of it believes that they're either inter dimensional demons or cycle fan pires. And at the center is this belief in this entity called cue, which is supposedly somebody in the government that is working with Donald Trump's secretly leaking all of these documents. I even hesitated to do this today because whether or not you're critiquing it. You become a super spreader keeps getting a super spreader of information misinformation because it keeps getting repeated but you now have the recent Georgia primary where The Russian. Where the Republican. Winner of the primary. Actually openly embraces the Cuban on theory explain what happened there sure. So Marjorie Taylor Green won her primary then a run off. It's a very conservative district. She's almost certain to win the general election. And essentially she's somebody who fully believes one in Q. In that entity, she believes the real entity. The second thing though is that she's actively evangelized for it. She has repeatedly told people if they don't subscribe to this or they're uncertain about it not to feel bad but to reach out to her privately and she will help walk them through the importance of q she has repeatedly called q a Patriot I'm that's why I think it's important to realize that when trump said the thing that he said it's not just that he didn't condemn it. But that when he reinforced the fact that the people in Q. and on love their country that they're patriots that is essential tenant of what I'm queuing nonbelievers. Tell themselves, and also what they used to help bring others into the movement is that they're actually the true patriots that are out there. Really trying to save the country and the world from this sort of inter dimensional psychic fight, and I would just point out that Marga Green is not the only Cunanan believer. In November, there are twenty q non Full Cunanan hearings on the ballot in November. Seventy five were running in the primaries for Congress and Senate, but twenty made their way to the dollar in. November. So that's another thing I think at this point, it's reached full spread that we really can't ignored anymore and you have the new slogan adopted by the Texas. Republican Party we are the storm. To Cunanan is that right? It is before one of the. Transition period in the early days of Q., and they were sort of going from pizza gay to full Cunanan. There was a period where they kept believing that the storm was coming, which is reference to a massive crackdown from Donald trump where he was going to expose the deep state exposed this ring of of Psychic Vampires Demons, and they kept referring to this as this prophecy that was about to unfold and in fact. There was an incident in two, thousand, eighteen where a man and our men took over the hoover dam and there was a standoff with law enforcement in one of the things that he was screaming was released oig Office of Inspector General Report he was a full queuing unbeliever thankfully, nobody was hurt that. He the reason he took over was actually to help speed along the timeline because a lot of Qa nonbelievers were under the impression that the officer Officers Inspector General Report would. Have exposed the deep state at the time that it was part of the storm and so release. The storm is one of the big things you hear. The other one is where we go one, we go all, which is a code word that a lot of Cunanan users used to sort of identify each other and also help evangelize. We saw that in fact, this summer Michael Flynn right now July fourth with this entire family. That's exactly it. When he took the oath which is I think part of the reason why Cunanan so different than a lot of people believe. No conspiracy theories and a lot of them are harmful and most of them are just harmless and ridiculous and. But what's different about Cunanan is that it's so inherently linked to violence. Bet You really believe in order to become a believer that you have to stand and fight that. This is sort of the existential threat of our time. And that basically, the ends justify the means. So when Michael Flynn took that oath, which is what he was doing him and his family, and all these other believers were taken the oath they were taking the oath. To defend the constitution to put their lives on the line. If need be at the end, they signed it off with that slogan. As sort of a way to get others to do the same thing and it took hold right. Then seconds what are you looking for the Republican National Convention this week I think a lot of it's GonNa be a a wink and a nod to what we're seeing in the swamps of the right wing I would just note that power right now is really being organized on what we would once considered the fringes. I think being able to draw those dots is something that I'm going to be paying much much close attention to well I want to thank you for being with US Angela Carson precedent of media matters, which monitors right-wing misinformation in the US media. That does it for our show will be with you all week covering the Republican National Convention from Charlotte to the White House tune into our breaking with convention series. I mean goodman wear masks stay.

Quick News To Go: 8/3 to 8/7

"Hello and welcome to the Quick News daily podcast where we give you all the latest news and under twenty minutes no fluff no filler just news made for the twenty first century. Today is Monday. August third thanks for meeting me back here. That's kind of weird to think isn't it that it's already August. Well for the first show in August will briefly go over trump's bluff on tick tock wind jared Kushner is an awful human. I shake up at the Department of Homeland Security and some other miscellaneous stories. Let's get caught up just because we've been following this story since its beginning let's start with a roller coaster of a weekend that tiktok cad. On Friday trump made an announcement outside marine one that he was banning the social media APP through an executive order. Well. As recording this show, there's still no executive order. The reason for this is laid out in an exclusive story on Reuters in which sources say that trump has given tick tock parent company Bite Dance Forty five days to sell tick tock to Microsoft. Probably, in a total coincidence, that's not at all related the Microsoft CEO Satya Nadal announced on Sunday that he talked trump into his working to address trump's concerns. He also mentioned that he hopes the sale would be done by September fifteenth at the latest. If you're doing the math along at home as of Sunday September fifteenth was. You guessed it. Forty five days away. kind of a chicken and the egg situation here I'm wondering who caved first Microsoft or trump. I'm sure tiktok definitely didn't want get banned because then they would be worth nothing in sale. So they were probably pressing Microsoft to make a deal. But I'm just going with my personal gut feeling that Microsoft said that they needed until September fifteenth ish. So trump agreed. This is trump's bargaining style. Go really far to the extreme to try to scare the crap out of the other person or country or whatever, and then when they get scared, they offer a compromise and he accepts it's just bluffing he did it with North Korea when he started getting in the button wars saying his nuclear button was bigger and that we'd nuke them off the face of the earth. The North Korea offers a summit. Trump accepts and nothing happens. He doesn't all the time in the trade war with China. When he says, he'll raise tariffs like every month. I also guarantee you that this is how he thought. He was going to get Mexico to pay for the wall if he ever actually believed that. Honestly, you know what? He reminds me of in the horrible bosses, movies, Jamie Fox's character mother love for Jones who's a terrible negotiator I can give you asked. Fifty thousand. Six hundred. You should not pink. Perry I'm sorry. Weirdest negotiated See he just goes for the most extreme thing and then backs way off back to the sale Microsoft said, it would purchase the tick Tock Service for the US Canada Australia and new. Zealand. But Reuters points out how weird that is like how they able to do that, and then still have tick tock out there in Europe and Asia. I'm guessing someone would have to change names because there's no way. Did all have the same updates and software and things like that? And it's like the McDonald's franchise in your city. McDonald's corporate isn't going to be too happy if they start changing too much the last thing though trump just declaring all of this like I'm GonNa Been Tiktok I'm GONNA make a healthcare plan or something it just reminds me of Michael Scott. I declare. Gloves. Hey I just wanted to know that you can't just say the word bankruptcy expect anything to happen. I'd say I declared. Moving onto this reshuffling at the Department of Homeland Security the Acting Under Secretary for the D. H. S. office of Intelligence and Analysis Santana fast whose name is Brian Murphy was reassigned from that position sometime Friday, and Saturday just before we get too far this is another one of my pet peeves in all these articles they say at DHS. Or something like that where they don't put the the infirm vhs because that's just how people say I guess. But that doesn't make sense you basically saying. At Department of Homeland Security like. That just drives me nuts. anyways, this is after news emerged on Thursday that the DHS. The. DHS. Sent, open source Intel reports to other federal law enforcement agencies, and these reports were summaries of tweets sent by two journalists who had published unclassified leaked documents about the Portland. Situation. This behavior which has the fancy description of collection and dissemination of intelligence on the press is a big no-no since it's the sort of thing that Putin does or any other dictator would do. The First Amendment, definitely frowns on that thing about the trump administration is that it makes you see conspiracy theories around every corner. And the story definitely seems fishy to me I murphy is career official not necessarily some trump stooge and second. The article says that they're source told them that gathering this Intel in sending it out was done by quote lower level officials acting on broad guidance in that Murphy wasn't fully aware of what happened until it was already sent out. So this sort of seems like Murphy was the scapegoat instead of acting, Secretary Chad Wolf who's a full on trump Est.. The really cynical part of me even thinks that this could be a convenient way to get out of the way if they didn't fully back the whole. Sending unmarked agents to kidnap protesters idea is especially because he was only reassigned. If you do something this agreed against the First Amendment. Don't you think you might be fired just a little more than reassigned the inspector general at the DHS. The House Intel Committee are both looking into the situation and if Murphy did have any part in it, he deserves what he got and more. But this is definitely something I'll be keeping in the back of my mind going forward. Let's take time out and talk about your voting plan. You might have noticed that Donald Trump has been trying to say there's a lot of mail in voting fraud but that absentee voting is a okay. The truth is this is basically the voting version of all squares are rectangles, but not every rectangle is a square. Both absentee in mail-in involve mailing or dropping your belt off after having it mailed to you. It's just the how many people get them part that's different with absentee. You have to request it for some states you have to give a reason some like mine you don't for mail-in the election is completely through the mail and you send it back or drop it off. The usual benefit to this is that people who might not usually be able to vote actually get to participate meaning turnout is often higher. This is the real reason trump and Republicans aren't in favor even though there are forty six states who have some mail option for this year. When turnout is High Democrats do better than Republicans. Donald. Even let it slip earlier this year. When he said, no Republicans would be elected if mail in voting went nationwide. That's obviously not true because Wyoming still always vote Republican because that's who lives there. But we know what he means. The real burden of mail in voting is that most states aren't used to, and now the new postmaster general is telling post offices to slow down the mail, which is pretty clearly designed to make votes missed the deadlines in not count which probably helps trump. Why is this clear? Well the new postmaster general is a trump donor and he's the first postmaster general come from outside meaning. He hasn't been career person working in the postal system. Just, another thing trump is corrupted So. What does this mean for your vote? It means Senate early or better yet chop it off quickly in-person. If you do either of these, you'll reduce the chances. Something funky happens with the postal service nothing your mailman is bad or the enemy or anything like that. But they're being handcuffed by their new leader. PS. Dumb can't say absentee voting is bad because he basically everyone close to always votes absentee. So he doesn't want to answer how they can do it and we can't. Alright onto the main attraction jared Kushner and being the main attraction isn't something jared is necessarily used to. Towards the end of last week, there was this exclusive in vanity. Fair. That's just too evil. Not to talk about in this article Vanity Fair was able to establish a timeline using actual invoices and messages by the end of March the corona virus response team that was led by Kushner had developed a strategy for national testing that would solve the delays and shortages that were still seeing. They felt good about it and by. The lower level people and the health experts that they brought in. And they were told trump would announce it in the Rose Garden in early April. Well. Obviously, we've never seen that speech. So what happened? Well at some point before trump announced, it jared killed the idea he exact reason isn't one hundred percent clear. But one named health expert who's in contact with a team thinks that may have something to do with one member of the team suggesting they didn't actually need testing plan because the virus is only hitting states controlled by Democrats. Instead of spending the time finding and sending out supplies. They should just blame the Democrats in power which would help trump politically. It doesn't take Einstein to pretty quickly connect the dots and figure out that if the virus got from China and Italy to the US. Can Get from California to Arizona and keep going like that. So I'm not sure what the thinking was there. Let's just for argument's sake. Give them the extreme benefit of the doubt. And, say, jared killed the plan for some other reason. This story tells us that these people only see us as chess pieces. As trump voters or non trump voters. Frankly. It's always been ridiculous that the trump family seen as the fighters for the Working Class folks. But this is just the icing on that cake. These cartoonish villains don't care about you or me and they never have they just live in a different world than us. And they always will. All right onto our last story here America's first department store originally opened in eighteen, twenty six. Their name is Lord and Taylor for anyone who didn't get those trivia clues. And they just filed for chapter, Eleven Bankruptcy Protection on Sunday chapter eleven is where companies restructured their debts. So it's not necessarily the end of the chain, but it is just another company that's fall into covid. Pretty astounding because they made it through the civil war to world? War. The Great Depression in the great recession. And this was the one that got them. But they were just bought out last fall. So maybe it has more. More to do with that parent company they're. Now all of that is significant but I also told the story to say that when I saw that when I saw. Lord and Taylor. Trending on twitter I actually got a little excited because I got Lord and Taylor mixed up with Lord and Miller. The film writers and directors who've done stuff like cloudy with a chance of meatballs the new twenty, one jump street's and Spiderman into the spider verse in spite of versus actually getting a sequel I. Think it was supposed to be next year but who knows nowadays. So I got excited like Ooh, what's the news about spiders is Toby Maguire coming back. But Alas No. Was Just America's first department store declaring bankruptcy I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm the real victim in this whole story. Alright gang that's all the news here for today don't forget to use the Lincoln description to check if you're registered to vote and or request your mail in ballot or absentee as we learned today. There's also a link for you to become a contributor and help the show out or return you get some benefits and those change based on how much you liked. Contribute knows what if you can't though I know times are tough out there and I'll especially understand if it's between me and a political candidate who needs our help all right stay safe. Make a plan for how you'll be voting. It's never too early this year with the Post Office Shenanigans and I'll see you back here tomorrow. Today is Tuesday August fourth. Thanks for meeting me back here. Quick Reminder since I seem to keep forgetting that free shipping code from thousand fell is still good through August twenty second I'll have it in the description so you don't have to listen to me, spell it out a couple times. So if you're still looking for shoes and thought you missed out, Hey, it's your lucky day. As for news today, we'll cover the battle over the next stimulus bill, a Georgia school that tried to reopen sort of for teachers at least an update on that tropical storm. Some more speculation on Biden's VP pick and some other miscellaneous stories. Let's get caught up. Let's start with the latest on that stimulus bill since that's the elephant in the room right now about a week or week and a half ago I mentioned that there wasn't GonNa talk about the stimulus bill until it was done because in these sort of things nothing's ever really. Done until the last second but this time I'm making an exception because we've crossed the point where that extra six hundred dollars in unemployment benefits expired already every time the story comes up the analysts always mentioned that that extra six hundred dollars a week was really the only thing keeping a lot of families afloat and they're already one in five families that are going hungry. So if Congress doesn't get something passed soon, it could get pretty grim over the next two to four weeks. By the way, there are about thirty million Americans who have been relying on an extra six hundred dollars. So it is significant. At, least for now chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin are pushing for a short term bill to get everyone through until the next big bill passes but last I heard there were only willing to give around two hundred dollars a week for the unemployment and then extending the ban on fictions Democrats seem like they're tired of kicking the can down the road and they're really holding firm on that six hundred dollars a week especially since they already passed that three trillion dollar heroes act the big stimulus like a couple of months ago. That was at least June it might have even been may honestly. So all this debate is within the Senate since the House already passed that. For comparison the Big Republican plan is much lower in it's only one trillion dollars. and. They're really pushing for two hundred dollars a week for the unemployment benefit because they think six hundred is making people stay home instead of going to work, which again is part of the point. We don't want everyone out there acting like everything is normal. They're also standing firm on blanket liability protection for companies. So if the workplace is unsafe and you catch Kobe. You can't see them and so if you call into work because you feel unsafe, they can fire you. So if someone could explain to me. The logic behind decreasing unemployment benefits at the same time, you're making it easier for companies to fire people I. Love to hear it. That's the frustrating part they make. It seem like if you're not working automatically means you're lazy and corporations always come first, it'll be interesting to see how this plays out because the House canceled August break but the Senate is still scheduled to take their month long break at the end of this week. So hopefully, for family's sake, something happens right at the end of this week as the Senate really wants to go on vacation. Let's talk about that school district in Georgia because I honestly don't know how many more huge blinking red warning signs we need telling us that person school is going to be a disaster. I'm talking about the Gwinnett County Public School System, which is the largest public school district in the state. The Superintendent Alvin wilbanks did ardy announced last month at the district one offering person schooling but. Some. Incredibly dumb reason teachers generally weren't allowed to work from home. County will let some do it in some cases to address individual concerns. So you can see where this is going teachers had to report for in-person planning last. Wednesday and then they had about two hundred sixty employees either test positive or call in because they were exposed to someone who did this all happened By Thursday. Obviously, they didn't all get it in a day especially because of how slow testing is going. But it just shows that even amongst themselves teachers can't even stay safe. So. Any of this Baloney about students staying in one room and having teachers rotate between rooms is truly a horrible idea. Yet Donald Trump is still going on twitter tirades saying we need to open schools at all costs. Sometimes, the tweets are all caps you know just for fun. Let's do a quick update on the veepstakes the final days here before Joe Biden picks his running mate. On the one hand I'm super excited because we'll finally know the weight will be over. On the other hand I'm nervous because the media, all of the channels are sharpening their knives to attack who ever it will be. It seems like they're getting bored with the same stories of trump is ruining his own chances. Trump's new tone biden in the basement. Biden has a huge lead, and if you want proof look no further than the story that ran with over the weekend, it was that story that was like a source close to an adviser to Biden said. And then some really misogynistic reason like comal Harris is too ambitious or so and so's not likeable or some bs like that quick news listeners. We have to be smarter than that. Again, anyone who joe picks we'll have so much more experience in government than trump had when he ran I think we tried the outside thing it didn't really work so it'll actually be considered good to have experience for once in any case, the conventional wisdom slash best guess is that the VP will be announced Saturday just to get maximum media coverage and because the Democratic convention is already next week that seems like it really snuck up on me they're. Just sticking with Biden for a second. Now, the trump is advertising again, what do you think about the difference between the two campaigns if you haven't seen them pause and look them up because this is as spoiler review but anyways, in my opinion, the tone between the two is just so different Biden's commercials are always upbeat happy. They're listed accomplishments when he has a vision for. Whereas trump is just about fear racism division just so different. And it's really a window into the psyche of what those people want you to feel of what the two campaigns want you to feel and like I've said from the beginning. Trump can't run this. Oh, everything's burning down and Joe Biden's America because it's it's happening in your America. Those are pictures from your America. In the super misleading one where they're trying to act like Joe Biden was asked if he wants to defend the police, it's just him saying yes absolutely. Totally taken out of context. That's not at all what they asked him they just found clip where he saying yes to something. So I. Don't know. Just. Take notice at those if you see them on TV where you're at or online somewhere. Okay. So you dropped a couple of other portions of Jonathan Swans interview with trump. So let's take a listen. This one is about two and a half minutes long this time. So not quite as bad as last time, but still hanging there it's worth it look at some of these charges I love to we're GONNA look. Let's look at if you look at death her. To. Right, here, United States is based in. Numerous categories. Were lower than the world lo the lower than Europe in what in what take a look. Here. Here's case death. Oh you're doing death is proportion cases on talking about death is a proportion of population that's where the US is. Really. Much worse than South Korea, Germany? Etc.. Do that you have. To go buy. You have to go by where here is the United States you have to go by the cases the case why not as a? Somebody, what it says is when you have somebody that has there's a case, the people that little. Cases It surely, a relevant statistic to save the US has X. population an X. percentage of death of that population versus south derailed by the cases look at South Korea, for example, fifty, one, million, population, three, hundred deaths. It's like it's crazy that I do. You think faking their statistics south. And we. have. A very good relationship with the country but you don't know that and they have spikes look here's. Here's one right here. United States. The number of cases. Last meaning what I Did. And it's. Okay. and. We have cases. Thousand Americans died I, understand I understand on cases it's different nobody you're not reporting correctly Jonathan I. Think I am but if you take a look at this other charge. This is our testing I. believe this is the testing. Yeah. Yeah. We do more tests that wait a minute. Well, don't we get credit for that and because we do more tests, we have more cases in other words we test more. We have taken a look at the top one. That's a good thing. Not a bad thing. Tough Jonathan if hospital rights were going down in debt so we're going down I'd say. You deserve to be praised for testing, but they all go they very closely. Sixty thousand Americans are in Halsey, you watch thousand. Papers they usually talk about new cases new cases, new cases I'm talking about death. Will you look at? Death is way down from where it was. It's two thousand a day it was two thousand and went down to five hundred. Now it's going in excuse me where it was is much higher than where it is right that went down. But now it's going down again it's going down in Arizona. It's going down national down in Texas take a look at this. These are the tests it's going down in Florida yeah. Just going leveled out and it's going down. That's my report as of yesterday. I mean. He's literally telling reporters at that what they're seeing with their own is. What they're reporting is true. And it looks like he's struggling to read these huge charts with almost nothing on them and he's making up like all these statistics and it's one graph. That's misleading and it shows idiot but check out this clip when they're talking about testing testing so much because it spread so far in America test. Because we had the ability to test because we came up with South Korea. We weren't even we didn't even have a test when I took over. We didn't even have a test now in all fairness why would you ever test no test disease how? There was no test for this new. We didn't have a test because there was not. In a very short order, we got one test. We got another test, it was broken the needed. Those tests are now obsolete because we. Call Science and all of a sudden something's better wouldn't. Say that. I mean thank God Jonathan Swan decided to push back and I mean he really showed up for this interview. Now to further pylon the president's bad morning, he was talking about this conservation act that he signed, which is probably like somehow deregulating and opening up the wildlife for oil. I don't know I haven't read it but. I've time believing trump is doing anything to preserve but Let's just take a listen to see if you can figure out what he's talking about in this clip where their eyes widen in amazement as old faithful burst into the sky. When they gaze upon your Semites. Its. Towering Sequoias. No, no, no that's not using. Might it is Yosemite Yosemite? I. Mean. Hey readings hard right reading his hard. especially a week after you said, you comprehend more than anyone Jonathan Swan ever interviewed right we all know our favorite cartoon character llosa Might Sam, right? Good. Lord to cap it all off. He sent this tweet about an hour before I recorded this quote whether you call it vote by mail or absentee voting in Florida the election system is safe insecure tried and true. Florida's voting system has been cleaned up. We defeated Democrats attempts at change so in Florida? Anchorage. To request ballot and vote by mail has take. Maga. Okay. That's weird. Why does he singled out Florida? Maybe it's because it's like the senior capital of America. Oh. Maybe it's because Donald Jess which his residents to Florida. So he doesn't want to answer any questions at all about why he thinks it's okay for him to do it and not for us he thinks everyone is an idiot except for him he thinks he's playing everyone. Just a quick update on. Hurricane Isa es and that is the last time that I'm going to be saying that. Can we have at least pronounced it differently if we're going to keep the name. I mean I don't want it. Too much because it's probably biblical or something but man dumb naming anyhow it weakened briefly to a tropical storm and then it was right back to hurricane status apparently one, hundred, twenty, million Americans are in the path of the storm. It's taking that East Coast Path I talked about on Friday which was supposed to be the stronger one but actually, it's not gonNA be too bad. It's moving quickly in terms of a hurricane sixteen miles an hour which I didn't think was quick but. It's traveling right up the I ninety five corridor. And it's expected to weaken pretty rapidly as soon as it hits land. So that's good. So just in summary Be careful if you're on the east coast because it's coming for you all the way through Maine and up to Quebec and stuff like that. In terms of what it could have been. This is actually not too bad. Now, obviously need to take it seriously make a plan and get out. But all know. Pretty good so far. and Oh you know what that means? Yes. The sound of Lee Greenwood Scott blessed the USA means that someone in America has said or done something. So ridiculous that it could only have come from America. Let's see who you've got today. it's Republican Lobbyist Neil. Clark. WHO's also trying to fight off a racketeering charge because he's involved with one client who was under investigation by the FBI Neil decided to weigh in on the mask debate. Saying he's anti mask because quote if masks were necessary for our survival is a species, we would have evolved one by now we haven't we have noses and mouths. Airways. It is not natural for people to go around with face masks on in their general life and no amount of government propaganda can change that. I mean. WHOA. Craig Mazin who you might remember as the writer and creator of the Turnover TV series. The best reply I think saying shoes mother effort do you wear them? Yeah. Wow. Hey, we haven't evolved shirts yet either so maybe we don't need those I'll just let good old Lee take it from. All right gang that's all I got for you today. I have to give you guys props at having some really incredible listening stats. The last couple of days the per day average is going through the roof right now. So thank you so much for that. If you want to play an even bigger role, there's that linked to become a contributor in the show notes again. So definitely check that out I've also written a couple of articles recently. So the link to my medium page is in the notes says, well, if you feel like reading those other than that stay safe, make your plans to vote and they'll see back here tomorrow. Today's Wednesday August fifth thanks for meeting me back here. Once again today we have a lot to get through. Including an update on the hurricane some trump news I missed yesterday. That insane explosion in Beirut in update on why you might not be finding clorox wipes in the store anymore or as often. And a lot of other little miscellaneous stories, it's a lot to get through. So let's get caught up. Let's get to that explosion at the Port in Beirut Lebanon. Apparently, the explosion happened from a storage shipment of ammonium nitrate, which is used in fertilizers, bombs, and commonly improvised bombs in there was almost three thousand tons of ammonium nitrate being stored for six years with no preventative measures. So yeah, something was going to go wrong eventually they're at his press conference yesterday trump was babbling on about some sort of attack but he had no evidence. He said it was based on presumptions of US generals. In that quote, this was not a some kind of manufacturing explosion type of event. So you heard it here first folks it's not some type of manufacturing explosion type of event. Also. It's good to just freely spouting Intel out there dumbing it down and I don't like to say he's dumbing it down because that makes it sound like he's doing it on purpose actually literally just doesn't understand the Lebanese government has said it will provide shelter and support for displaced families whose homes were destroyed. And it will cover the expenses of the wounded and as I was reading that I was just like man good luck with that in America. At least without some type of fight like the insurance companies would not like that. But as of last night when I was looking, there were three thousand wounded and at least fifty dead. But both of those numbers were supposed to go up the actual true cause is still to be determined. But I thought it was weird how they were two explosions there was a small one and then there was at second big one that looks it was like a mushroom cloud that can nuke but not like a new any other way. Like there was no flash in actual nuke is like an emp cut out all of the electronics around it so like there would be all these phone videos. They're not sure if it's a terrorist attack or something like that. There is high unemployment in protests in Lebanon. They're also struggling with corona virus end. There is supposed to be a verdict this week on a two, thousand, five assassin who took out the the prime minister at that time basically started all their unrest here. So there are some things going on where it could be some sort of attack but TB D-. Let's talk a bit about Clorox You might have noticed since began that they are definitely in short supply. The caloric CEO told Reuters Monday that they may not be fully stocked until next year I didn't realize glorious owned all this stuff but they're under stocked I'm a lot of their products including glad trash bags in birt's be lip balm. Now, the supply of those are expected to get better, but it's the disinfectants that are really the problem because we're all injecting. Him and stuff like that. Right I have a glass every night before bed but apparently, it's due to supply chain issues including the fact that one of the key ingredients is also used in medical supplies. Yes. Masks and medical gowns. So you can imagine that they still do have to prioritize but man, that is a bad list of three to pick from masks, gowns and disinfectant wipes to cut one or two that that is not a great list be cutting for. In any case they blame hoarding for a lot of the problem here and where the shortages began. So again, don't horde and I guess start looking elsewhere because it may be a little bit before we before we get the clorox wipes back. Now. I'm not sure about other brands but. CLOROX specifically if you're a loyalist here to clorox. Let's get an update on now tropical storm Isa es man eight saying that still but it turns out damn near. Yesterday was a lie It started out as a hurricane when it hit North Carolina that's where it made landfall. And it brought with it tornadoes mostly some flooding and then fires as well. It went down to a tropical storm, but it's still on the verge being a hurricane like just below the threshold it's still moving at thirty five miles per hour, and that's just crazy because the guy thought sixteen miles per hour was a good speed yesterday that meteorologist I was listening to it was supposed to go through New England on Tuesday night. So last night new supposed to speed up to forty miles per hour but overall, the storm weakened and the winds were only at fifty miles per hour. So let's go what I said. Yesterday is a cone to slow down. NOPE it sped up. Is it supposed to weaken? I said yes but apparently no, and I said it was not deadly mostly involved flooding. nope. Tornado flooding fires, wind surges, I, mean Jeez some really hoping he didn't listen to be on that or whoever I was listening to for that meteorologist. But if you're on the east coast angrily thinking about all your listeners out there. If you are listening at this point, let me know if there's anything I can do to help out here. Here's a story from a couple of days ago that I still can't believe I missed but then I was thinking well, it's not really surprising to me. So maybe that's why I didn't think about it. But Attorneys for Manhattan da Cy Vance. They disclosed that the trump organization is under investigation for bank fraud and insurance fraud. This. All goes back to last year when they subpoenaed trump's account S-. This was that Supreme Court case I mentioned last month. Now originally, this was supposed to be for the payments to keep stormy Daniels and Karen, McDougal quiet about their affairs, but this fraud part is the new part. It shows they're looking for more than hush money or campaign finance violations which are more serious. You know in the real world back Obama. WAS PRESIDENT BUT WHO KNOWS NOWADAYS After that Supreme Court. Decision Trump's lawyers filed a suit saying the DA was overbroad in their requests they're asking for too much. So Sivan's will. Yeah about that. We're actually investigating you for more serious crimes too. So Awkward. Unfortunately complicated, which is what they use to describe. The investigation also means time consuming. So this won't be over for a while. I did always think this was how they get trump to resign though. Like offer not to prosecute in exchange for his resignation but maybe now they're going to indict him as soon as Joe Biden is sworn in God willing. Back to that press conference, though trump was claiming that he's looking at an executive order to regulate mail in ballots. And if you're worried about that, the short answer is he can't elections are done by states and Congress provides oversight, which is actually kind of the scary part because you can imagine someone like Rhonda Santa's Florida Not Certifying the election results but that's a that's another story noted Democratic Election Attorney Marc Elias says he can't he weighed in on this And he and a ton of other lawyers are watching this stuff like hawks flooding trump with lawsuits almost daily from what I hear, which is actually another one of those heartening things. It shows that there are a lot of these good people looking out for this. So. We're not going to go down quietly or you know be unprepared for this fight. Trump also made a weird claim about Nevada passing voting law in the dead of night without any public hearings or anything like that. While in reality, the governor signed the bill on Monday and it had previously been debated by the Senate and assembly in public hearings. Also with public comment periods. So yeah. Almost none of what he said was true. He got the date, right? If you're Nevada and listening the law makes it easier to vote by mail. But of course, they still authenticate signatures to try to prevent that mysterious voter fraud. That is super rare. But let's just pause for a second year and just was just kind of think about this. Trump in Republicans think the biggest threat to election security. What they think is election fraud. Is More people voting. Like every other country on earth that gets like eighty plus percent turnout getting like fifty. Sixty good goodyear. HOUSE WASHING MSNBC and there was a scary anecdote, a reporter covering a primary from yesterday. He was talking to trump supporters although are old and one of them had Jn at least. In their voting in person because they think male is equal to fraud. So it's getting to trump voters fisher but I suppose to do that you have to believe trump and I don't think most people do so maybe it's not actually that bad. The media just keeps talking about how trump's depressing his own turnout in they said that last time to you know. You're some news for almost every listener especially the heads of household out there. The Census Bureau is stepping collection of the census one month early. So the new date is September thirtieth September thirtieth. You can't submit it online after that time and there well, I guess on the good side, they're going to be any door knockers after them but really the census is super. Important. Obviously. Civil Rights. Groups are concerned that it could lead to an undercount especially of minorities. Go figure of course, you'll get the bad end of the deal. Now, director of the agency did ask for an extension in spring. But it stalled in the Senate. I wonder why? So he's saying, they had to celebrate to meet the deadline by the end of the year, and then they have to deliver it a couple of months after that to Congress and the President or states in the President I. Think. So maybe there is some truth to that I don't know a lot about this director, but just the pattern just last month trump sent a memo trying to keep undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census. And I'm not sure how he keeps getting away with this stuff to try and monkey with the numbers. Because I read the statute myself on the census and it literally specifies. Persons. Not, citizens it's literally just trying to see WHO's here not caring about their status. Honestly gets dumb that any leader or governor or anything like that. Would want minorities undercounted because that's so shortsighted. The more people you have. The more money you get from government in the less problems you have down the road. Places like Florida and Texas poor governed by some questionable individuals will have to serve the same number of people with less money just because they're not counted doesn't mean they don't exist save you're gonNa have so many problems your states going to suffer because of this, I don't know why it's so hard to treat these people like people. So the moral of the story get your census in check on your friends family your neighbors make sure everyone is their census in make sure they know the new due date of September thirtieth September thirtieth. Make a plan. I think we're going to close with one more clip from axios interview between trump in Jonathan, Swan. I wasn't sure if I was GONNA share this clip but I feel like we need all hear it in all try to understand state of mind trump is in. Let's listen. John Lewis is lying in state in the US Capitol. How do you think history will remember John Lewis I don't know I don't know. I. Don't know I. Don't know John Lewis he chose not to come to my. Integration he chose. I, I never met you actually I don't believe you find him impressive. I can't say one way or the other I. Find a lot of people impressive. I find many people not impressive but no, but I didn't. I didn't come to my inauguration. He didn't come to my state of the Union speeches and that's okay. That's his right. And again, nobody has done more. Americans than honest. He should have come. I think made a big mistake. I. Take taking your relationship with him out of it. Do you find his story impressive? What he's done for this company was a person that devoted a lot of energy and a lot of heart to civil rights, but there were many others also. There's a petition to rename the Edmund pettus bridge in Selma Alabama as the John Lewis Bridge would you support that I would have no objection to it to yet to Grad would have no objection to it whatsoever. I mean, those are all layup questions. But he still can't get over the inauguration thing. He can't even give some cliche answer like. Oh, he did a lot for the civil rights movement is Great. History will look back on good can't even say that because of that personal slight. And then he goes again with the I've done more for black Americans, which is just like You, series Honestly. Mentally. He's just gone. He's. Can't even mustard good arguments anymore, he can't get over personal slights. Tom Nichols said the other day on podcast I was listening to that he's an eight year old in a seventy, four year old man's body. It's true. And Oh, by the way, John? Lewis skipped George W Bush's first inauguration to yet who was over there at John Lewis's funeral giving a eulogy. But George W Bush saying kind words about him in giving him the respect he deserves that's two types of presidents right there. All, right that's going to do it for me here today make sure you make your voting plans, make them early there's a Lincoln, the description it's the votes save America. Link. So there you can check to see if you're registered to vote and the process for requesting your absentee or Mellon. Ballot Yes it is still safe if you're outside of Florida. Other than that. Check out the website at Quick News daily. Dot Com. There's so much stuff I forget to mention every day but I truly think I do offer some good stuff out there including merch. If you're looking for masks or t shirts or sweatshirts, there is that available as well. But until we meet again tomorrow, stay safe again, make that voting plan and I'll see you soon. Today is Thursday August sixth. Thanks for joining me once again here, I. quickly, just WanNa say stick around for the end for Info on merchandise store issues mostly around the free shipping code. I'm guessing around Promo codes in general. So explain more at the end there but today's topics include the New York attorney general announcement the sad news especially here in Wisconsin about the Democratic National Convention Kansas Primary results in much more. But. First, let's take a look at two important anniversaries. The Voting Rights Act of nineteen, sixty five, and the bombing of Hiroshima today is the fifty fifth anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of nineteen sixty five which provided nationwide voting rights, protections, including banning state and local laws that discriminate especially against minorities and banning literacy tests to vote now, these were especially. Strong. Before twenty thirteen because back in those days, counties and states had to get federal government approval before making changes to voting laws. This is actually what the Supreme Court struck down in twenty thirteen which I've mentioned a couple times before and I know I've written about a struck it down five to four with John Roberts, of course, being the deciding vote. He said that it was quote no longer relevant to current voting conditions in the states that were covered end quote, which is such a dumb argument because it's not now because of the law because of the law you put in place. I don't know I think this is just like the problem with deregulation as a whole. If you don't make them do something the companies are the governments are just going to go back to the old ways. But in any case, there is a bill to restore this sitting Mitch McConnell's desk, of course. There's been a push since John Lewis to name it after him. And Joe Biden has promised to pass it if he's elected. And it's sure to sit on Mitch McConnell's desk forever. If he's not flipping over to Hiroshima, it is the seventy fifth anniversary of that was the first atomic bomb dropped in world history. Well, on another nation, there's the test, of course. But it was the second, but it was the second overall. I incumbent still crazy to believe that nuclear weapons were actually used in war on people in you know there's a lot of armchair quarterbacking it at this point I guess I'm not quite as hard on Harry Truman as somewhere the president at the time who made the decision to release those bombs but. I think it would have been under any option. And I I hate both sides arguments but that's just thing in war where there's I mean we are dropping tons and tons of bombs every single day. The only difference was that this one did it in one shot like we were going to bomb them anyway now that's a bad argument. But it's just there are no good options and obviously civilians may disagree. We. Killed enough of them with that, that's the horrible part but it is important that we take time to remember these events especially this one so. We make. So we make sure it never happens again. and. We've come close but. So far so good. All. Right. Let's get to that. New York Attorney General announcement last night there were leaks all over twitter in new sources saying that New York Attorney General Latisha James was holding a national press conference this morning, the popular theories that were floating around where something to do with trump's kids. Trump himself. The trump organization or the NRA. The NRA was sort of my gut feeling just because the trump announcement would have been too obvious. Like that it just would have been to. As the most popular guests. And the NRA thing. So random compared to the trump guesses than house like it's probably going to be that one I didn't really get my hopes up that high because I dunno just seems like nothing really sticks in this case, the Teasha Jones. In the state of New, York filed a lawsuit against the NRA and four top executives for. Years of illegal self dealings. and. Lavish lifestyle and quote. So basically, they were diverting money from the caused to executive for their own personal use. Alleged I should say. Alleged their also allegedly giving contracts to family and friends of the executives. And paying off former employees to keep quiet. That's not suspicious. They announced the investigation last year but nothing was really public since then at that time the president step down in the very same month so. That must be coincidence right Oh by the way that president of the NRA was. Oliver North The familiar face who helped bring Iran Contra to life that was under the Ronald Reagan George W Bush. Administration Overall I think this is a good worthwhile investigation. I'm really pessimistic about anything happening just because. You know. The Second Amendment just trumps everything. Also this kind of thing. It's ironic hell everyone in the comments section at least on the local news stations that I follow on facebook is blaming Democrats for trying to take their guns and all that stuff. You know the huge. It's just kind of weird how they don't have a problem politicizing an attack on the organization. But they always default to sing damage try to politicize school children getting blown away by a air fifteen. I don't know. It's just kind of weird. Thoughts and prayers though NRA thoughts and prayers. As for the Democratic convention tough blow for Wisconsin Joe Biden announced that he won't be traveling to Milwaukee for the Democratic convention and he'll be accepting the nomination at home while not at home but in his home state of Delaware. I don't blame him one bit. or his campaign for making the decision I wouldn't come to a place where the mask debate is still heated if I had the choice really. We really don't need anything happening to him between now and election. Day. So safety I it would also look weird if he's travels but trump doesn't end up traveling it's good for optics as well. It's a shame because this was supposed to defeat the Cliche Oh Hillary never came to Wisconsin, but it does help keep the image of responsibility. So unbalanced worth it ends the case numbers here are awful in Wisconsin if you don't live here, you know that necessarily but yeah, not doing great everyone thinks the the whole corona will go away on November four, th which. You know I mean like, yeah. The whole world is shutting down there counties in tanking them to get Donald trump out of office. Those Democrats but the last pro I'll say for not having the convention at all here it's cheap it's super cheap to have it virtual. So that means more money for ADS which could end up being more valuable in the long run. In a story I missed yesterday Kansas had their primary on Tuesday and the interesting race to watch was the Republican primary for Senate because it could've ended up helping DEM's Win Senate control. Come November. The one that I was rooting for to win because he's such terrible candidate was Crisco Bach, he's massively unpopular. He lost the two thousand eighteen governor's race to a Democrat in Kansas Kansas it's because he's super anti immigration probably racist someone say also led trump's task force to find voting fraud for trump so that he could say actually won the popular vote but Hillary Buston all these people. shockingly, it went nowhere. Weird Yeah voting fraud not that prevalent as it turns out, it went so far as a Democratic Super Pac actually running ads in support of coke so that he'd win the primary end lose in November but unfortunately, Roger Marshall kind of more of a planned candidate he won and his more likely to win in November. But WHO KNOWS KANSAS? If you're out there, show up requests those ballots. Let's talk quickly about that job report came out today that one point two, million people new people filed jobless claims last week. Making it the twentieth straight week with over one million. New. People filing jobless claims in that week. or the week before really. The thing to watch this week is the jobs report which comes out on Friday and. Not expected to be that good probably somewhere in the middle since they weren't these awful cases at like the fourth of July, last month but we'll have to see you know the stock market is just GonNa take it anywhere they want to. So though all of this is coming as still no stimulus deal is passed in Congress. It sounds like there's talks of splitting it in the middle of doing four hundred dollars a week for the boost to unemployment. Unemployment payments but my personal feeling is that if we compromise on that. On something that crucial? We need. To, get them to commit to funding for the postal service and or elections, but mostly the postal service. Democrats have all the control, all the power, all the negotiating power in this. So I think they should hang onto and not really given easily. Already. That's going to do for me here today folks. For, the news at least what I was mentioning about the merchandise store is that it seems to be that the free shipping code isn't necessarily working. It's because any of the. Any of the price has knocked off the shipping charge comes out of the Prophet for. Me The seller. So if the shipping is more than what I would have made than the code doesn't work. So I'M GONNA fill with it more over the weekend. Probably, I'M GONNA leave the free shipping up there. You can still try code free ship but if it won't work I'm assuming that's the problem I didn't make it expire yet or anything like that. They'll try to throw a ten percent off out there as well. Ten or fifteen just to Kinda see if that would work for you. I. Don't Know Maybe Watch social media or the website. Quick News daily Dot Com I. would. Definitely put that as an announcement on the homepage. So keep an eye out for that. You can also find all your social media profiles on the website, Quick News daily dot, com, but his links to instagram facebook and twitter from there as for me for not really looking for any merchandise, feel free to leave a rating into or a review wherever you're listening because that is just as good. It does help boost the show's popularity or helps get higher up in the charts in the suggestions so it is appreciated for sure. I'm GONNA leave you today with this clip from the daily show from the daily show. They splice together all the Fox News people and even Eric Trump. Saying. Stuff about Biden about how he's. Mentally. Gone and got dimensional that but it actually fits trump. So after the clip of the Fox News people playing saying something they put a clip of trump that they're exactly describing. So once again, trump in projection go together like peanut butter and Jelly. Years that clip from the daily show with Trevor. Noah. Until tomorrow stay safe request your absentee ballot. Fill out that census and I'll see you back here tomorrow he's having trouble reading Laura they gaze upon your Semites Heights towering sequoias there's something off air and how many gifts can you make every single day? This is the very definition of totalitarianism increasingly sounds like one of those bad lip reading videos you see on the Internet they delivered a swift and swift in you know that sweeping it was swift and it was sweeping. We thought that he has trouble getting through the words France Japan Sweden Finland Finland Lucius s grant in Minneapolis I think the Minneapolis police just like we did Minneapolis laws met laws plasma, the plasma plasma we need. The poor man he can't read a proper either the same spirit that drove America's governor cities announced even know what year it is Joyce in twenty all no homes offices and buildings by two thirty in April of twenty thousand fourteen has difficulty keeping his train of thought blazing fast broad walk and and of you think I, am announcing that my administration is And we've he's obstacle course that makes it look like he is just not up to this job. Today is Friday August seventh and I want to ask a rhetorical question or a one way question but did anyone else feel like the week flu by literally Tuesday was when I started thinking it was Thursday. For some reason I did the same thing on Wednesday. So I've actually had like three Thursdays this week for some reason. Weird. Anyway to close out the week, we'll cover topics like meaningless republican antics the cleanup slash recovery slash rescue mission in Beirut more Inuk dotes on one of my favorite topics getting rid of the traditional ways businesses operate plus even more to digest over the weekend. So let's get caught up I with one of trump's most off the rails he's had. This week. That's honestly what we judge him by now a week's worth of trump rants like to normal presidents worth of gaffes. Anyway let's take a listen here because he's going to double and triple your taxes. He's going to do things that nobody ever whatever think even possible because he's following the radical left agenda take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment no religion. No anything hurt the Bible hurt God. He's against God. He's against guns. He's against energy are kind of energy. And I was in Texas the other day I said, wait a minute. The other side is against. Guns they're against oil and gas. There against Religion Bible God. How's he going to win Texas? How's he going to win so? You're, not GONNA win Texas he's not going to win Ohio. Bob Toby better now in Ohio than we were four years ago, I'll take the same victory but I think we're better now you might think, I, make fun of trump too much when he does dump stuff even when it's decently serious but like former Obama staffer Dan, pfeiffer says. You can either laugh or cry because this is supposed to be the leader of the free world and laughing is just the preferable thing to do i. mean this is just dangerous to have this guy leading us by the way how can Joe Biden be ao see or Bernie Sanders puppet because he so senile but also basically be the devil incarnate or antichrist who can singlehandedly. Tire religion like it just makes no sense. It shows that trump's still has no idea how to attack Biden and we're less than three months from the Election Mike with Hillary. It was easy. Republicans had been bashing her for decades. It was the Clinton. It was just a thing but the problem with Joe. Is that he's old wight and a man whose last name is Clinton trump can't use any of his good old material I, e Misogyny. So he's just flailing at this point but honestly, if Biden could be senile and all powerful I think I'd like him even more. That's just impressive. Also. Did you hear how clunky he was with the Bible stuff? Just saying the most generic things about it. You literally thinks all these people are so simple minded that he all wits them in his lungs. He says the Word Bible or upside down outside of a church that he can get their vote. I mean this is also from the guy who said this I'm wondering what one or two of your most favored Bible verses are. I wouldn't want to get into it because to me that's very personal. You don't want to talk about the Bible is very personal. So I don't WanNa get into I. DON'T WANNA get into. Means? That you think about her site the Bible means a lot to me, but I don't want to get into specifics even decide a verse. You don't want to do that regard do testament up probably equal I think it's just an incredible. The Whole Bible is incredibly job very much. They always hold up the art of the deal. I saved my second favorite book of all time but I just think the Bible is just something very special. No I'm not much of a Bible guy either that's not the shame about this. The shame is acting like you are like just know your limits now when you can't fake something. But he really has no other choice just a crazy crazy clip one of many this week. Shockingly twitter just flat out removed a video from Donald Trump's account that was yesterday. The tweet was video spewing all the usual crazy garbage about masks and vaccines and stuff like that. Just the corona virus stuff. To be more precise twitter suspended his account from tweeting until he removed the post so. Kind. Of Quid pro quo back. Donald Direction H-. CNN says that they had already done that trump had already removed the video by the time they wrote the story and that trump was free to go. So to speak free to go off on twitter again I think the most shocking thing overall was that facebook removed the post to. I mean what a strange time again, that's when you know the video is really really crazy. Well. If you've caught a few of my older episodes, this next door shouldn't be much of a surprise Donald Trump when he called into or Aldo Rivera's show on Thursday we're already off to a great start to that sentence When he called in trump started pushing that glimmer of vaccine. Hope he said quote I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before but right around that time and. That was when Geraldo asked him is the vaccine going to be ready by the election and oh What a coincidence a magic vaccine will be available just in time to make people reconsider their vote. Funny. Funny. How that works isn't it? I think you could have guessed but again, all of what Dan said was totally made up in from his fantasy world doctor felt she had a Reuters interview on Wednesday and he said at his best guess for when the vaccine will be available is still twenty twenty one and he firmly said that health regulators quote are not going to let political considerations interfere end quote and Holy Hell Do I. Hope, he's right. Trump just corrupts everyone and everything. So I'm skeptical especially since he's gone after Falconry so much but I'm not really skeptical about that with a Biden administration. So I guess just another reason to there again, don't fall for this dangling of hope of a vaccine. It's definitely going to be one of his reelection strategies saying, oh, it's almost over he still keep saying disappear it'll just go away. As if people will believe that. If you're looking for someone with incredible poise look no further than former deputy attorney general Sally Yates Republicans called her to Capitol Hill to testify because they're still trying to look into this Obama Gate thing. Like trump's campaign was spied on legally and all that, and that's how they caught Flynn. So once again, Republicans are showing that in a time of pandemic in economic collapse let's do what matters. A. Witch Hunt in actual which hunt Yates was really poised the entire time that she was up there even when there. Insinuating she was dumb or just insulting her. They're just trying to stir up controversy make it into something. It's not which may be the dumbest thing you can do because. Mike Flynn pled guilty. In Open Court. He's a criminal he admitted he's a criminal. Only corrupt Phil Bar in Tamil trump helps flynn out of jail out of serving jail time. Insulting Women Insulting Barack Obama. How bad are you at trying to get back the suburban women vote or trying to get donald trump more the black vote Don't Attack Barack Obama and don't keep calling women dumb. They're just so bad at this. Let's shift over to the jobs and economy in the trade going on as promised the jobs report came out today and it showed that one point seven, six, million new jobs that were added in July that brings the unemployment rate by whatever they judged by down from eleven point one percent to ten point two percent. The jobs report was actually better than expected, which is kind of a strange pattern I'm seeing. You know how every month it seems like Oh these job numbers are gonna be awful and then they come in better than expected in everyone's happy. Kinda sounds like someone's trying to game the system I mean, don't you think it's at least a little fishy. In any case, the market is actually still down today because they're fearing that the recovery is slowing it was really fast in June now. It's slowing down a bit. So of course, they're always looking for something negative. They're also still worried that the temporary layoffs that people are going through specially servers people in retail. They're way that those are actually going to become permanent because places still aren't open in they're not making money and you have some cases where people are getting laid off two three times because it's always stop start stop start. The market is also down because trump imposed a ten percent tariff on Canadian aluminum candidate. Of course announced they'll retaliate on some of our goods that we export to them, which is just how it goes in a trade war. It's just it's really erratic in stupid the US the US can't even make enough of its own aluminum. So we need to import it. It's not like we're just doing it because it's a lower price we literally can't meet our own demand. This is why I don't get why people still trust trump on the economy. I would think that all of the billionaires in Wall Street and everyone. Would really WANNA push for Biden because at least he'll provide consistency. You won't have a trade war every third day or maybe a war starting you won't have radic guy in the White House was actively trying to manipulate the markets. That's how this corona virus thing started. Speaking of stupid radic is this new story emerging because someone wrote a book about this topic, a former official. So now it's getting back into the news. Again, it's about all the Times that the military tried to keep trump in the dark actively keeping things from him because they can't trust what he's GonNa do next they can't tell. The first example is in two thousand, seventeen with Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea and all that fire and fury button stuff defense secretary Mattis and others didn't give him all the options to retaliate against Kim. Jong. Because you probably would have picked the worst one. They also say in twenty, eighteen and twenty nineteen with Iran that would eventually become the drone strike that killed General Suleimani that caused Iran to lunch missile strikes against Iraqi base where we had troops stationed. But the first story was Oh. We moved our troops outta there already. Oh it was only a few that got hurt. Oh, it's only like thirty. That got hurt. They only had concussions that could lead to brain damage. It just kept getting worse because trump I think probably realized like men actually don't WanNa get into a war that was just the new year. That's when we thought the worst thing that could happen was a war with Iran. Good Times good times trump actually wanted to retaliate for something else back in two thousand eighteen. And he wanted military options given to him but the military leaders just flat out refused unless he asked them personally. So eventually in a few days, it went from being their number one top priority weekend retaliate to never following up again because trump just lost interest or forgot honestly it's so bad that AIDS even tell other world leaders that they don't know what he'll do, and this is a bad thing especially because other leaders know that they can take advantage of us because we won't have anything ready we won't know what options to prepare because you never actually know what trump's GonNa pick. We did this with even like I suppose it's a good thing because then they know it's not like actually are will. It's just the will of one madman it just so happens that the madman has all the controls. So it's just it's not a great situation. I suppose he can expect too much from a person who pronounces Thailand like this shifting production to highland. and Vietnam Thailand and Vietnam. To places that I liked their leaders very much very nice tunes. Do they take advantage of the United States? Foulland? Now Open it's actually just a KFC themed park. Honestly trump is like the kid always chooses the ridiculous multiple choice answer. You know how every teacher has always told you like, yeah really there's only two good answers. So the keys to eliminate the one that's good but not the best, and there's one that's just completely junk in every set of like four multiple choice questions. Trump is an idiot and just always hicks the worst option. The one that's clearly junk. So I don't know do you feel safe with that person in charge I don't. All right folks, let's wrap it up with something fun, which is trying to get rid of the traditional style of working. There's new research from P WC that showed only forty seven percent of employees in America said, new safety measures would make them feel safe enough to return to work. These employees also had a lot of good questions like what about elevators will there be one way hallways. How will be handled if someone refuses to follow safety guidelines, i. like Google Uber Even facebook's plan of not having employees return until mid twenty, twenty one because it's just not going to be safe until then we probably won't have a vaccine until then Oh, a lot of workers are also concerned about meetings and saying they're probably all going to have to be virtual because we all know conference rooms are small. The problem with employees who are returning toward is that they're afraid to speak up. Even if they see a problem, there's so much unemployment out there that people are just happy to have jobs that they're scared of doing anything that could jeopardize that. So the really Lena tough position. Especially since employers can mostly fire them for not showing up even if they're not showing up for legitimate reasons, concern for their own safety, even Osha when oceans called in their only suggesting things to the employers are not making them do anything or there's no penalty for not. So, they're not really being an advocate for employees or workers. So there's really no point in reporting workplace violations. So it's pretty much being caught between a rock and a hard place again, I say if you can work from home, you should be able to work from forever the company could save on building space they won't have to rent or billed as big of a building in honestly if you think about it, if you can work at home if technology improves, would you be able to do it under percent online if you could work from home but you're like, it's just not as good as working in the office I don't have quite the technology. We just need to improve technology. It's so dumb to keep leaning on this crutch of staying at work because the technology isn't good enough it needs to catch up. And I'm really hopeful that will soon. Hey all that's a wrap on this week of news was a tad more eventful than last week. As for what you can do remember the census is due by the end of September, September thirtieth. You can fill that out this weekend you can register to vote and or request your absentee ballot make sure to do that sap if you get it on September third, but it in the mail by September fourth. Don't take any chances. So make sure you request that or just get registered to vote. Also, if you're in the mood for shopping for shoes with a story, you can shop at thousand fell dot com and get free shipping with Promo. Code F S, Quick News that code is good through August twenty second again. Show one of our sponsors some love also keep an eye out for merchandise changes on my store, the Quick News daily store. I'm hoping to get you some discount codes. You can use I'm going to play around with it this weekend like I mentioned. Also be ready when I start offering more benefits for being a member either unsteady Patriot on or pay pal. I'm looking at adding some maybe Promo code or a giveaway or to. In any case that's a lot but stay safe registered to vote and or request your absentee ballot fill out your senses and if you fill them all out a sap, there's less chance trump can somehow influence results. So let's make sure we all feel pounds by say October sixteenth. So we can just watch the blow on November third in all its glory. All right. Sorry for throwing so much at you, but it's important. All of it is important. So stay safe this weekend and I'll see you right back here on Monday.

Expanding Veterans Community Project

"Good afternoon walk into the Kensington in quarter. I am Jeff. I'm Tom Today. We're here with Jason Candor former Army Intel s two officer. We used to do so. I was in basically Oh three to eleven in the garden reserve and spent some active duty time. Nice very nice and Jason you are. I don't WanNA screw up the name with it veterans. We I work here at Veterans Community Project. Run the national expansion. You WanNa tell us about that. I would love to talk about for asking. Thanks for coming. Here yes so Veterans Community Project is a nonprofit Founded by combat veterans. Not Me. I'm late to the party But but was founded by a group of guys Here in Kansas City. Who said you know all these holes and veteran services? This is really annoying. We think we can do a better job. And Veterans Community Project exists assist to fill gaps and veterans services. That's that's what we do here. We fill in the gaps. We don't replicate services. We don't advocate for policy changes whereas Social Service Agency and there's two big things that we do one is residential side. We Fight veterans homelessness. We have a religion just about two hundred meters from where we're sitting now. A village of tiny houses that has helped a radical veterans homelessness in Kansas City. And then we also have Nonresidential services which is a walk in operation with wraparound services for any veteran whether one day or twenty days or twenty years whatever and the military We always say we don't care what's on your. DD Two fourteen. We just that you have on and if if you don't have a way the way we'll go get it for you and the way I got involved is I toured the place when I was running for mayor was super impressed by it and About six weeks later realized it was time for me to step back from public life. Get help for post traumatic stress and I found the process at the Va more onerous than expected. And I thought Oh. I'll call all those folks over Veterans Community Project. They said Yeah. We'll help. You came walking in the door just like any other of the thousands of events in Kansas City and they took care of me got me into the system and on and look at me. Now I mean that's got to be a real motivating factor for the fact that you've actually come through this program utilize these services. I mean is that is that a motivational motivational thing for you on a day to day basis as being here providing great service to our veterans and to our community really. I mean it's it's really easy for me to be sort of the chief evangelist Angeles of the Organization Right. I mean it's like the old joke I'm not just I'm not the president but you know I'm not just the President I'm also a client. You know. haircuts for men thing That's me And so I can speak to the to the necessity of it But it's also just one of those things where it's a new chapter in my life where I'm able to use Mike Platform And cash it in for my fellow combat veterans and and and all veterans and at Super Gratifying for me. Yeah I was GONNA say that that I was curious because I have. Obviously you heard about the project before but Very sparingly until you came on and so I was curious about Out Just when when you brought in how did that look like I mean. Obviously I'm used to services but what did it look like when you actually brought on what was After they helped me out with my my paperwork and everything But seven or eight months later I'd been going through therapy at the. Va Things. Were going very well for me and I started just kind of hanging around down and volunteering and and I you know I've been a top organizations before so maybe offering like a little bit of mentor ship here and there for some of the leadership and and then at some point Brian One of the cofounders and CEO. Now friend of mine he said you know man like everybody wants to come to their community and replicate this but we don't oh how to build a national organization. You've done it. Do you want to just come here and do that. Because he knew at that point that I was also thinking. Okay what now go back to work. What do I want to do here and And I just jumped at it. I was like yeah that makes perfect sense. I love being here. I love the mission of the people. Here I just love being around it and I and I just thought that is a perfect way. Okay for me to use my skill set and my network In a way that it's not about me it's not about politics or advancing my career and it's also not about like what a lot of former politicians so I'm not cashing in to make a bunch of money right. I'm just cashing in for veterans. And I feel great about that so it was an easy choice for me. So where where is the program then like on as far as a national expansion. Is it still just to Kansas City. Only thing or is it something that we're seeing branching out into other parts of the country or so we the the the objectives that we've set is to Go into fi or eight additional locations around the country by the twenty twenty two we break ground on we refer to various media project. VP So we break ground on BCP Colorado this spring. And then there's I mean the nice thing is because I was able to sort of do like a real media blitz on it once because there I was able to take advantage of the fact that there was an element. Not I'm not going to say a large element there. There was a piece piece of the world that was curious what I was going to do next and I I was able to leverage that to do just a whole bunch of national me around it and that helped us sort of bring attention to it and then the product is so good. I don't have to sell it right. The product is so good. It's putting it on the map to all these cities so that they can then uncommon. Okay now we want one and so now. It's like the problem veterans homelessness and Holes in the system so large. I'm not even doing expansion. Based based on where is the problem the biggest because it's huge everywhere so it was just. Where can we deploy the fastest so like right now? The cities that are really doing well at accelerating that process. Cincinnati has been great to work with so far I'm going to New York this weekend. There there's some talks there I'm GonNa Forget some but Saint Louis Orlando having great. Talks for Dallas I mean there are several others but like those are kind of Oklahoma City because they're kind of the ones that are in the hopper but By Cincinnati Myrtle beach. Some so. You know it's just everywhere needs it and it's exciting to see how many places are like. Yeah we get this it makes sense. We want you here right now. We're talking time. Lime was the the You hopping on board here. was that after writing the booker before my book. Yeah my book was Came out in August eighteen and then I step back from public life in October so like I still recommend the book to people but Chapter Nine like if I had it another shot at it. I'd probably describe it. I was going through differently right right. Yeah well my publishers talked to me about that. I'm trying to finish living it before I. Yeah right there. Yeah I hear that. Yeah actually through your book the other day on a on a livestream that I was doing so so jeff thanks. Yeah we both we. I was just curious. You know when I when Steph Dr Seventy Davis who did the last episode. Where when she was telling me about you I was like okay? Yeah you know I mean you know obviously interested I wanNA sit down and talk to him and she was like he's a great guy. You're gonNA love visit Dessau. Stephanie is he's like you're gonNA love. Okay let's sit down and talk and so I was really curious about your backstory and I. It's just audience. We talked previous on this. That weren't really going to touch that much on the past. Because I wanted to talk about the future more than new thing but if you want to touch on it really quick as you I'm happy to Yep Yes so by far as my back story Let's see okay I'm fifth generation. Kansas City city was thinking hey I was. I was raised with the idea of service in my family and not military service but just serving others. My Dad was a cop night. My parents met because they were juvenile probation officers in their day jobs. So that's kind of the house. The house grew up in when school in the East Coast. was thinking thinking of maybe one day I'll serve. I didn't really know what that meant to know if I ever would. And then. I was in D. C.. Nine eleven happened and a lot of folks. Our Age was like well. I'm clearly going to do that. So went in DRC during law school at Georgetown Didn't go in his Jaguar as a military intelligence officer Got Down Range in October six six to Afghantistan and they said okay. We got two jobs you could do. I was there I replaced to attend a colonel. The second lieutenant which was all sorts of weird and they said okay we need. We need an analyst for the night shift. They said but we also have this thing. We need somebody to go out and investigate corruption and espionage within the Afghan government and the Afghan military so so is basically kind of like humans or human intelligence work Obviously one of those was way safer than the other and I didn't pick that one because I was twenty four and you know thought I was invincible and the night shift has got awful. Yeah I mean it's sort of like men volunteered to do all this stuff. Now trained up like Oh and do their army we stop right. You know so you know I. I went out sometimes in street clothes. met with folks spend a lot of time with the people of questionable allegiances. Mrs Who were more armed than me and outnumbered me and Anyway so I did four months doing that and then I came back act. became an officer at school platoon trainer in the guard. And then at the same time Ran For office around for state legislature. SLATER WANNA raise representing Kansas City in the state legislature. Then at the age of thirty one became the first money will ever to win. Statewide office in the country became secretary state of Missouri and And the whole time was dealing with untreated undiagnosed post traumatic stress nightmares. The whole the whole deal and telling myself like I can't stress. Yeah I never got blown up and not realizing that the experience of running around trying not to get kidnapped all the time could be pretty traumatic and and then you know had a very successful political career going ran for the. US Senate got the silver medal outperform. The top of the ticket by sixteen points. Which Kinda I put me on the map That in an ad where I symbol the rifle blindfolded. I'm giving you my number. That usually gets people that's what people remember And so as I did that ended up frankly kind of famous as a result of that and then was like what do I do now started an organization for voting rights. And next thing I knew people were talking about me. Running for president. President Obama said some very nice things about that possibility. Basically and Then I was thinking I'm going to run for President and whole time. I was actually getting worse as far as my own symptoms and not dealing with it at all Somewhere in there also to things things. That happened I had a child with my son was born. My wife and I've been together seventeen. I kind of skip that part of the thing that happened is the royals won the world series twice and that story. I've told you so so far. So those are the major events and then You know just kind of burned out to the point where it's like. I was realizing that I was putting too much stress on myself but I didn't know what was wrong. I wouldn't admit to myself as post traumatic stress and I said you know what rather than run for president in twenty twenty. I'M GONNA go home run for mayor. Kansas City. That was going great. I was GONNA win by a country mile but he's got worse and worse had suicidal thoughts and just October second in two thousand eighteen. This is like things are going great professionally professionally. I my book was New York Times Bestseller. My podcast debuted at number one in the country. We're going to win the mayor's race but I was like I'm not sure I'm GonNa live through this so I stepped back. Winter winced. Va got help And about eight months of therapy and now I work here and I'm sitting down with Y'all that's my life story. Go Yeah I I mean I. As far as the therapy there'd be I mean when Jeff and I first met I just got now and When I was still active duty military was really big thing to Just use don't talk about mental health. This is it's not something you do I was fast tracked staffs are and I think Steph aren't four years And so you didn't talk about it or as a career ender so when I got out I I'd I had been undiagnosed on. Just everything had not done anything in I I was telling Jeff I was having days where it was like. I'M NOT GONNA make it out of this bed man. I mean this bedroom like you know like I don't know and Emotional numbness that dog. I can't feel anything what's the point of I was. I was not showing up to class and just being Mike Man. I don't know what I'm doing more mice elated. I don't know but he was like man. Just go see somebody going in and it was good. Yes you know I. How did you two meet? How'd you said this met in school? Were both non-trade the traditional that you and You know it's a free route on premed story. We were in a lot of the same classes asses. I think I met him about a month into my first semester. Back in school. I mean when you're thirty K.. You kind of tend to stand well also like that's just Kinda see other room. Yeah two dogs bark at the actual thing jeff how to be on his bag and I was like I I see yeah. WHO's this dude so yeah No and I went through. You know my own kind of mental health journey and we've talked about a little bit but I It is kind of the same thing you know. It's it's one of those things like you keep saying. I can help myself. I can help myself and then you kind of have to hit that wall most before your before you know At least that's how it was for me. I I basically It how how it worked for me was I was just Kinda listlessly flowing through and I'm a diabetic. Was Not taking care of myself and my mom base leave told me one day. You are going to therapy and I actually went to It's is a therapy. It's a center over an eighth cottonwood springs and they They have you know a very bevill. They're wonderful place. I can't say enough. Nice things about those folks but I went and did did I want to do their outpatient therapy for about a month and a half something like that and I came back out on the other side and I was was not diagnosed with major depressive disorder and I can't on the other side and I was like I've been living my life under a shroud for almost eight years ears and I couldn't believe it and that was a really eye opening experience. That's why wouldn't retard when I first met you know And we got to know what you're a little better in our. I was kind of seeing if some of the stuff he was struggling. Like you say you know having a hard time getting out of bed or having a hard time you know just doing the things you need to do You know it was pretty obvious to me. Thank you know that. I saw a lot going on with him that I had experienced and I was very much like. Hey man you know you can get help with this. You don't have to live like this one and and so I think that you know I think and I think that that's such a powerful thing just that whole idea of the snowball effect that you you take what you've learning. Pass it on to other people they can use it. And that's one of the things actually when When Tom and I were talking about potentially getting a chance to come to a podcast with you you know I? I think that's one of the most amazing thing I mean. You've done some incredible stuff I mean but like just the idea that I mean literally. You probably did more for mental health. You know just doing what you did. And you know being there on the public stage and I mean most people ever be able to do in a lifetime and you know hats off for that. I was very fortunate to be able to do that. I mean it it's It's one of the. It's the most important thing I've ever done. And I mean we you were describing. I'm GonNa be like feeling like you've been living under shroud. I mean that's totally right. Like it is like all of a sudden being able to see in color it is like the wizard of all you know. Yeah Yeah I. I was telling Tom and I've told this story before in the podcast but I I remember when I was going through my therapy One of the things. My therapist was really big on with you. Know reengaging reengaging with your old hobbies and when I used to read a lot and I hadn't had read I mean I'll probably hadn't read a book for a year and a half and or maybe even longer than that and and I picked up a book that I was just a fantasy novel. My brother got me for Christmas. Two years we've been sitting on my shelf and I remember sitting there and I was probably about two three weeks into my therapy. You and I was reading this and I got just such as like rush of emotion like literally my. I got goosebumps on my arms and I would just like that. was like the Kinda by switch switch more for me. I was like Holy Shit. What is that feeling is like You know an and I think once you do when you get that glimpse of the way things can be again. It's just like you know is hard to get people on board sometimes with getting the process initiated and and that's why I'm I'm so big about just you know. I think everybody could use therapist. I really do one hundred percents research yet. My big thing was a lot of mine was And and the only thing I wanted to hit on with. PTSD is moral injury. Because when I got injured I felt like my whole life. I've worn army just turned their back on me anymore So I I ended up tearing my P. L. Y. in The Iraq Syrian border in fifteen and So basically Coming out of vehicle GEICO copper and when I landed I thought I sprained my MC L. But I ended up tearing my one on the outside the yes I had the. PTO goes right into the pillow bone like in the middle of the night. Basically Andy Seal Whoa. PCL's really weird. It never happens and so our injuries Greece your accent. Yeah car so really. Major trauma injury normally In so I was with I I had literally been at four Rally for maybe four four months. I didn't really know much in command and really know anyone a guy that I'm really good friends with David Dein he was the first time he left a month. After I got there so I knew no one and so you've got this new guy gets there gets an injury. That kinda looks suspicious. Because they go in they do an MRI. They don't find anything. And I'm like guys like I can't walk Mike. I'm I'm I can't do anything like With swelling at the top and what it was thought maybe okay I had like a quad injury like going down three ligaments. Going down toward toward the middle or sprained or something and so they get back. I finally almost a year and a half later. They put me through physical therapy. All this crazy stuff I get back and AH I met a major who was gonNA take another look at it so he looks at it and he was like did I. Were there smoke. There's fire and he was like I think there may be something going on and he was like I don't WanNa do like a fool on you know take the kneecap off like an actual repair. But I'd like to do two slits on the side of us not put a camera up in there. Let's scope it out. Let's see what's going on. And we got done within. He was like Oh. Did you had a major player. I don't know how he fixes. ACA DID A microfracture screwed three in there and he told me later on in honestly I. I'm I'm guessing I'm just 'cause being in shape I'm better off. But he told me after the surgery Eve's I'd even five or ten years. You'RE GONNA you're gonNA need another surgery. I could have done so much more. And they're hoping the MICRA factor because the problem with the micro factors whether it'll take her nods you basically drill these micro holes and cartilage and you hope that the underlying cartilage feels and so it did and I I would say at thirty one. I'm in better shape now than I was ten years ago to be honest. I'm not you've got this thing working now. I WanNa see what I can see all right. Yeah and I know and I told my buddy my buddies in third group and I told him I said man. I'm going to go to selection fall off an obstacle course. Tear my whole knee is. It's GonNa be ever no but I I don't know I know I know but no I'm I'm happy with it. Yeah that's what I did. I got healthy again and I was like I'm going to. I'm going to go back and give it a second dry and sued happens. It's funny that's like I mean my Steph was not physical but I didn't know that like my back all the time and and so much of it it turns out was just my mental health like it was causing me not to exercise and now I'm I think I'm in better physical shape than I was even when I was in the military because because when I was saying like you're like oh I got this thing work and now I feel that way might okay. My Body works now. I want to see what it can do. And it's exciting. And that's how I was with the the the classified I suppose the moral injury as a betrayal. You know I for a long time was getting out and I was like I had all this weight terrible survivors. Oh yeah expectations -tations and I can't believe I'm out and then start going to school but I told I told Jeff this the weirdest thing about going through an injury and getting now in having this you no injury that you're not sure how to deal with was that about the first sixty days I was out I lived with another guy who actually ended up getting Co against it's Jason Coca Cola cans and when they were mission he was fine but he got mad workout. We're the same age. And he's physically fits best humid Out The majors actually. He he came out of surgery. Did My post op. And he was like you're never going to run again and house. It cannot be true. And he's like no. I'm serious like you're going to be putting with physical profile and I'm GonNa recommend that you change in my less and I was like what's the other option news like Med word throw throw. It was so did that. Of course I can run again so but Yeah I you know I was I felt betrayed by uh not only by my body by by the government by like all these things I was I was with my first sixty days out every day. I wake up and I would. have this nauseous feeling. I mean and I sat down Jason when they ask. Hey Man I wanna see if I'm crazy. Do you ever feel like like like they're calm. They're going to call you to come back in or like something's wrong longer. Like you're going to go to jail and I was like I have done anything you know. And he was like everyday everybody's crazy on the green but he was just that yeah. It was like a survivor was dealing. We learned behavior. I think one of the things interesting though is that I mean. They're they're deathly is something to that. The physical manifestation of mental health or lack of mental health. I I remember one of the things that you see. All the time was I was constantly like kind of like slump in my shoulders and hanging in my head yet and I would get these like Golf Ball Ni- under my shoulder weights and my he was just the the worse. Earning heck there is what I call third year. He Jenner to I. Am I got it. Oh you guys have a podcast. So that's how we became so saying like your automatic somebody but that's how we became so close to jess started coming over over first semester. We got together Jeff come about five. Am for coffee we both get about four am shit. Yeah so he come over. 'cause I'm use it up before I do you better. Yeah I got things to do. Yeah but But we have coffee and we would just talk about books. We read a lot and he looked at me one day. It was like amen which it started. Podcast yes and I was like well. I got all this stuff exciting planning on starting one that was like let's do it So here we are so exhausted. Yeah I'm I'm pleased to be invited invited coffee. That's great. Yeah definitely is what it is. I mean it's almost past coffee time listener. Actually don't even drink coffee. I just feel like I got an invite you say that because Jeff and I both Kinda stopped drinking. Yeah not not totally. I still drink but not like we used to be like pound whole coffee pot more than why got diagnosed us with anxiety and my therapist like how much coffee to drink it and I was like ninety four ounces. And she's like no seriously I was this. A lot is a lot of call. We were drinking coffee like all the time. That's not much water you're supposed to I was. I was getting with the water to matching no joke all the time. We'd have two to three pots of coffee in the good morning the morning before sixty four I got wired was like she was like I need you to cut back to twelve ounces before four nude authentic so yes good call it was. It did help it did help. You know it's fascinating to me that you knew exactly. How many ounces? But weren't like this seems like too much you were you able to ninety four ounces like I know that I drink that much water because I put it in the thing in my fridge every night and then but that's been much water. Yeah now I have a funny story about that. We were talking about water one day and I told jobs. Eighteen ninety five percent of people in the world do not drain Jeff like Nah definitely drink and I was like I guarantee you that if you start walking out and be a doctor deaf but he came back two days later. Yeah you're right. I drink hammered camry. I'm worried about me. That is just really mostly just trying to stay hydrated sleeping pretty much sleeping in hydrating. That's all don't vast. I don't need food but absent. In fact I was just literally put together by dinner. Plants this time over I was GonNa say if you want to go you barbecue. You're yes this is a good spot if you WANNA go get some good food. So what's next for Jason Candor. What's next for? PCP what how. How do you how do you pretty much one in the same exactly? Yeah which is nice For the longest time I thought about what's next as low. I thought about it all the time right because the president was no fun And so I was always well I can run for this or I could do this or whatever then I could do that. I don't do that anymore And it's interesting because you didn't ask it this way which I appreciate But the most common question I get ever is gonNA run for something. What's next jeff and I went to your lie? The speech and I told him I thought I asked us semi important question to me to Romero's your and and everyone else that I I would always like ask a question. But then they would caveat it with so. Are you like thinking about President. Okay Yeah Yeah Yeah and The thing is like I'm just not I think and it's much it's really nice to. I'm just enjoying life so much that I really like what I do here and I want to get as many. VCPI's set up around the country as it possibly we can. It's needed everywhere But like when I'm excited about is like you know I think about life in terms of workouts like I'm sor today. 'cause yesterday was heavy leg day. You know and then like I know you know that Wednesday is basketball practice for my son. I assistant coach that team. I know that baseball starts again. He's six by the in. This series about baseball starts again in April and his machine pitch now and I coached that team. And that's and that's great. You know and I I'm engaged just in politics still like obviously don't care about it any less than I used to and it's not like I certainly think the country's going in some great direction like that hasn't changed. Therapy will not undo is my my being convinced that we're not going in the right direction and so I'll get out and twenty twenty and campaign for the Democratic nominee and And I'll do some TV. And I o pine on social media and all that but honestly like this can change but right now like after six BMI. I don't work right. See that's a big deal for me. That's one of the things I've been really curious about. Like what is it like you know after being in politics and that like just having kind of that work life balance now and you know. I assume he'll like you said six o'clock your check out your home with you. Know your wife and son and you know it's amazing for us. Well it's incredible and it's you know at first so it's been about fourteen months since I like step back from public life. You know. Now I'm back in it but when I pulled the plug on thanks there And like it. I like. It was really hard. I remember. I went to therapy. I said to my therapist I said I you know I've stepped back from everything I can be here every day. If you want me to. And he he goes. Yeah we'RE GONNA slow you down now you're going to do weekly therapy and you're going to have to do your homework in between like your prolonged exposure you know. Listen anybody who's been through And that was really hard. Knew it would be and it was good for me because I was having. I had been for a decade having a lot of trouble being present and I really had to work connor and I had to focus on mental health and doing the exercises and everything but now and I referred to it as my sabbatical right so like I didn't work during that period I had the urge I just felt like I mean I'd spent so much of my life feeling like I didn't do enough when I was in so now I've got to redeem myself by like I did forty years of work in ten years and it just never stopped working because if I stopped working I had the deal with what's going on in my head. You know so it just over a few months I started to really settle into it to a point where it almost got. I almost got to Sullivan was like I couldn't really figure out how to work on something again. Then slowly I did and and then now. I'm like really hitting a good balance because I've now arrived at the point. Where like heck I got a bunch of friends running for president and I keep in close to them their friends and everything and sometimes 'cause they wanna come and see this place or whatever or they WanNa talk about veterans policier? Just just whatever they just WanNa talk to somebody who doesn't WanNa talk about politics. Whatever it is and the thing that's changed is that was still happening a little bit? The first few months of me taking time them off but I had this like tremendous conflict within me right like I should be out there. I I would be doing well right now. I think I'd be polling well. Whatever and now my I don't want to write but I love what I do and I work here and there was an interesting day? Where so we've had so far? Three presidential candidates visit and the first one that came was Pete Buddha judge and And so pete now I've been friends for years and I walked Pete around in this voice and and everything and then at the end of the Latour you know. The press throngs all followed Pete and he went to his black SUV to leave. And that used to be what I did you know like I. I did the whole dry run for president thing I did. I when Hampshire and had not that many cameras like Pete's doing pretty well and it was also a in an actual campaigns these You know but I did that and I got in the SUV. And I drove away and it was when I when I was doing it. I thought like this is just the only way to be right right like I will never never going to be happy waking up in the same place every day and all that when he left it was interesting. 'cause I walked back over here to the headquarters building with our team here and we we. I don't know if this G. rated podcast for now we'd actually focused. I would think that he had a little hammered on one episode episode and it was a good shot. The shit with everybody here for a while and I was like man. This is interesting. I I do not only do not want to be in that vehicle but I've driven up by thirty five to des Moines many times For when I thought I was going to run. And it's like I don't WanNa be in that car. I want to be right here and I want to go pick up my kid from school and and so That's a very long answer question Jeff but no appreciate it. Yeah it's like it was just this evolution to where now like when people asked me you were going to run for office again. What I think of is like I understand now? Why people people wait till their kids are grown to do that like my my son is a blast man and we'd like to have another and and And he loves this place to better community project. That's the other thing like he understands he gets you know he went to New Hampshire and he saw me give speeches he gets. Dad was gonNA run for President and he gets dad was gonNA. It'd be mayor and all that stuff but in six like he didn't know what the hell that really means But this place like he thinks it's so cool he gets it and there was one day where we were driving down the road and And a stop light and there was a homeless guy next to us. But you know I was thinking about something else. It's just kind of is straightforward and and true. My son He says dad. Do we have any money and I was like why. And he said we should give it to that guy and I'm like Oh yes like give the Guy Dour and I. It's I'm telling him like true. That's great but he like I was not paying attention and you're being really caring and and he said well He had on an army jacket. I think maybe he was an army man and and he's homeless and he's going to be cold tonight. Here's like and that's what you do dad. That's what you do you help you help army people who are homeless and like I got really emotional like but it was cool because right then I thought I can do this for the rest of my life like my son understands what this is. I understand what this is. The other thing was like it was great and I feel like I helped. Oh I did a lot of good but I know what I'm doing here. I know the impact rat. I I think one of the really. You know you kind of opened up you talked about. You know the idea of service right and I think that that's important to illustrate that there are different levels of service on what y'all are doing doing here. At Veterans Meaty project is a very personal level of service to people and Like I said I think that's phenomenal it. Is You guys put up an Instagram Post. The other night light of An I mean it had to be eleven o'clock I think but it was basically. Hey we're getting two rooms ready for two people moving in and I when we started this podcast. We started with like a general conversation focused. We weren't sure what we were going to do. And now we've kind of been swept into the veteran umbrella which is totally fine with us. We you know it could be war history and we'd still be us But we've talked to dairy familiar with headstrong executive. Does okay. So yeah we. We're trying to get him on his well. Yes biking. Is You talk tomorrow. Now we've reached out we've communicated through instagram but okay now if you wanted to help if I actually dude never call this week. Yeah and so you know. I talked about them when the livestream the other night and they of course like. Didn't you know it's all about to me and stuff but I just thought that when I went through and Jeff is what would we both went through our our the mental side of what we were doing. it just became really important to me that when we don't we did our first broadcast Carr's our first podcast was on suicide. No depression anxiety and just mental mental health and I was like a really fun way to pilot islet and it was. It was beautiful. It means we just had we would have people reach out to us and be always gonNA kill myself and my list of your house like Whoa. That's pretty serving right. I think the the reason it's off in that direction is kind of that was kind of one of the first things we wanted to go through because like I said I'd recently been through it Tom. was little tiny going. Gordon and Yeah it was. It was something that was very personally important to us and we knew that we could and we kind of branched out outdid some other things the beginning it Kinda has focused back on this and I'm sure you know will kind of be all over the board now but we really. We really liked the idea it just because you don't like what you guys are doing here. You know just raising awareness and you know yet. That's one great thing about you know like this this project here. You know. It doesn't matter where you are in America. What what year? What your views are you know pretty much everybody can get the get behind the idea of you? Know helping veterans get behind the idea of mental health. And well the reason I thought this was so important in the reason that I'm glad we did it. In your December and not You know one veterans day or memorial. They were on suicide. Mental Health Awareness. Month was my my biggest problem with everything. Is that on Veterans Day. N- everyone loves veterans. Yeah on Memorial Day. Everyone loves to think about pass veterans and those who have fallen no and then we do the movember. Did I shave my moustache last night. Yeah but we do member for men's health and breast cancer awareness month. We did the mental health awareness month. And it's great to highlight that out of the year but these are like important topics that everyone everyone should be talking about. And I. I made a comment Steffi. I actually listen to the PODCAST. We did with her the other day and I liked to response a lot but I said you know one of the biggest things that used to bother me. Four or five years ago was the twenty two a day push things and I was like man. There's so much more you could be doing uploading videos of you doing twenty two pushups day and I get it. It's important you know and Stephanie. 'cause I I told her that I thought it looked kind of selfish that it was more for likes and she responded Well maybe that's all they think they can do you know or maybe that's nice. I was like damn now feel like an asshole. Well you know you're not your instinct is how this place came around right. I mean it's just like a lot of us and I can't speak for the founders but for me like what frustrates the hell out of me. And you've heard me say this before is Yellow ribbon magnets on cars. Like you didn't put a yellow ribbon. You didn't do anything. Yeah yeah but I went through the same journey which I spent a Lotta time years just being angry that people thought that did something and then I realized just what Stephanie said You which is Oh people WanNa do more. They have no idea what to do. And that's really what I love so much about this place. This place says okay. You don't have to just stand up at a ballgame and applaud somebody who gets recognized on the jumbotron. This is a place where you can come in like. If you're a mental health provider you can do it here. If you're a veterinarian. We got better in two dogs and they can't can't pay for veterinary veterinary services. You can do it here. Dennis isurgents you name it. Anybody didn't matter you. You can swing a hammer you can build a house you can stuff hygiene kits. You can do anything here. And and it's really brought veterans and the community together and it's just recognized that everybody wants to do something but nobody knows even veterans. Don't I don't know what to do for other veterans like we get out and it's not like you can just call the first sergeant and be a hey can I get so and so's number I mean don't work that way in or Now there's a a lot of things we can change to make it work that way but that's a whole other conversation but people just want to do stuff and that's the genius of this bias as it was like. Let's give people a place to do stuff for veterans. And when you do they will. There was we talked previously about the team red white and blue doing the the volunteer the basic hanging Christmas like dry for the better and I. I would have never known about that unless I was on the team. Red White and blue facebook page. I never know that we're not have popped up on anything I've known I wouldn't have seen it and I I really do. You think that we're in a An Age now to where I mean. Ten fifteen years ago these programs didn't exist and in social media was starting to come up and now we're in a place now to where there you're starting to see a lot of veterans that are like actually coming together like A. It's really surprising to me because for a long time when I got out I was like man. I really don't know anyone the new Jeff you know. And then I'm starting to see a lot of people over in the Casey area especially with the team red white and blue. We have You Go ruckus I've heard of it. It was you you told me about. I'd I'd probably do you remember so it's it's basically a A Special Forces Cadre Started a company when he got out he just loved rucking so they started started doing well we used to we started allocate club together and That was two months. Go through months ago. And we're up to like seventy members now people just just people. I don't even know games for Nash. Walk out for the Veterans Day Five K.. We rocked it. We is awesome. I hadn't put all rucksack in a decade the just the best bullshit and no matter of any content whatsoever conversations have ever had been on right. Oh yeah that's fantastic and on the bus ride home. We got this Marine Corps Ritchie's just Okay so Ritchie. First Time receives a special person. He's GonNa listen to this so he'll no NFL but he He showed up to one of our study sessions and Hopton with us. I know who he was and I mentioned to an Air Force Cadet Amen. You should come out rock with us in this guy. Turns around on US Iraq Yemen. Rut Richie rich now. There's no no no I was like what is it. It's funny you say that because we have one that came out and I I hope he listens to. He's GonNa fail. PJ school and but he is a horrible human being but no he came out and he called me he was like I really had come up but I don't know what Iraq is and I said said. Oh that's so great that my joke was always super well. They don't issue and so I said I have one four. You don't worry about it. Come out so he did grew will ritchie the first time jeff unknown for a while. Ah Yeah I randomly met him at a bus Saba that you like last year and I had no idea he was a marine Just like had a random conversation with him and and then like about probably three months ago Tom And I ran into him. He popped up and so he came out to one of the first A cold event. Actually it was me him and just a A guy that graduated from Ku. That's a naval officer Rhode Island in hand to be visiting for the weekend. Massive brings his three year old kid like no big deal. I think Richie says to him. I Navy officer fucking officers. And then he's like okay. Dudes we're all right Ritchie's like out of nowhere words goes. I remember this time. I oh that's what it was. The the Marine Corps birthday was coming up. I'M GONNA get so trashed and I said yeah many remember few years go in Vegas I I did a did a bunch coke and ruin like six hookers and I was like. Who are you guys looking at me? And I'm looking Ritchie. And I'm like I know him in the car and invited the officer to breakfast at Alchemy and Ritchie of course goes she told us. Hey we've got to make this fast. I gotta go do something while. I'm bite right this guy to breakfast which he goes. I'll be there so I I. We're getting the car I text the offer came. I'm sorry I don't know him. But but but Richie is a big a an actual really really dedicated guy. Really good guy. But we did the veteran five K.. He worked with a Pony Keg and we got a guy sounds just like that here and and he was he was amazing but we know we have a rut coming up this Friday December the seventh. Yeah we they're gonNA use this Friday so the seven with this Saturday. So we have the Chosin Reservoir Memorial Rock and in the end. We're going to do a one minute. Plunge into Clinton Lakeville remembrance over. Yeah well we're GONNA do the Pearl Harbor. I told him I somebody was like that sounds horrible and I was like so does dying in the Pacific Water Pearl Harbor warmer but that was. That was an awesome comment. Yeah that's fantastic but now I mean any so in closing though. Do you want to highlight anything with you. Know what what you're doing in the future what people can look for And then how gnarly that how I mean we're we're basically in every state how they can help with. You is moving forward to come many different cities. I appreciate the opportunity. So folks go to Veterans Committee Project Dot Org So it's Veterans Community Project Dot Org Ingo.

Hey I live here and I'd like to get involved in expanding like you gotta tell us like here's who I know. Here's what I do. Give us a real sense of who were dealing with You know and we. Sometimes that's the beginning of what ends up being an expansion so are gonNA plug the social media handles for your shirt a dog so veterans me project you can find us at at VP underscore underscore H. Q. So at VPN skew. That's on twitter. That's instagram and then facebook is just edmonds community project. And then I'm on all the same stuff. But I'm just at Jason Candor Unplugging Book You know the book is good book it's done well. I feel weird like a year later but sure if if people want to read it was near times bestseller. People seem to like it was a good book. It's called thank you. I'm super hesitant by the way when I buy books especially for our politicians Titians yeah. I don't read those like that's me either. You know the the Baxter and that is like you know I kinda hit this. Little Wind pocket in pop culture to where people knew me And and so then publishers call and and they're like want read a book and like nine hundred ten publishers. Like we want you to write a book about where the Democratic Party should go and I was like I would never read that book. And they're like you have it people buy it and I was like So I wrote the most UN politician like memoir book. It's so it's called outside the wire ten lessons I've learned in everyday courage. My unofficial title for was outside the wire had gone to politics without becoming a tool. I mean it's basic it's basically what it is and it's fine I. I think it's A. It's a fun book so I do have one more question for you on air. Oh sure do you know Andrew Yank. I've texted with him. He's one of the few candidates. I don't really know Hoffy. S So say you're calling it three Andrew. Let's get hit your Yang Yang Guy. He's pretty interesting. I think he's super interesting. I really like Malaysia. Yeah I'm I you know I I I know most of them. Just 'cause we've run in the same circles for so long but he's a little newer to us. We crossed over a few. I think there are a few times where like we were speaking at the same place but we didn't meet and then you know next thing you knew. I was on my sabbatical but he has said some nice things about community project so we texted about that. But I'm not. I'm not saying well. Hey we just want to say thank you so much for taking some time schedule the thanks for coming all the way here and you know we really appreciate not only what. You're doing for veterans trends. But what you do just for the Kansas City areas as a whole and thank you selected and happy holidays thank you for not being the Democratic Crisco Bach. They try to try to be the the whole the whole alternative to go very. It's it's My Mom and dad could not understand. Why would not vote for Chris? COBOL that's not being recorded right after you stop. I mean I gotTa go back Doc Story of you want yes. We've it's in. It's in the book but you know May maybe maybe I am pitch in the S- okay so oh I got elected Missouri Secretary State in November of two thousand twelve took office in January and like two weeks. After I took office there was the National Association of Secretaries of State Conference in D. C.. which as you might imagine is a huge raging amazing party No it's not it's it's It's just what you would think. It's a bunch of secretaries of state sitting around talking about running elections and stuff like that now historically it has been a very nonpartisan organization in the sense that Yeah There's Democrats and Republicans but there's not really supposed to be a partisan way to run an election or to like regulate investment fraud and that kind of thing But then Chris Khobar came on. I think he got elected in twenty ten so he'd been there a couple of years younger than me. Maybe he'd been elected before that. I'm not sure but he had sort of this little band of tea. Party Sycophants that would follow him around. And I and I was very familiar with go back. You know like we've shared media market here in Kansas City You know it's Kinda weird that it the way now since then that life has developed where I was kind of the main guy pushing voting rights and he was the main. Yeah I push into not voting rights and like it is kind of weird that we live in a half hour part. I like even nationally. We're in this fight against each other but anyway at that time nobody knew who that guy was and I show up and I it happens. His Co. Bach puts for this resolution where he wants the entire Secretary State Association nationally to sign onto this letter to president. Obama saying don't do any legislation whatsoever to decrease waiting times or to make it easier to vote like we're totally against that right and I'm going and everybody. They're not really sure about coq yet. Most of them. So they're like what is this and I know what it is because I know there's this due to deal and so I'm I'm like wait a minute. This is a hugely partisan thing you're trying to get this organization to do and he's like no no not at all partisan no and And Anyway we go back and forth and it gets Kinda awkward when I the Guy who had been there all five minutes TOLD THEM LOOK partisan and he and I said look it's not my fault That one party wants to keep the federal government out of elections and the other party wants to let black people vote. No it got a little awkward when I said that and Anyway I ended up winning the thing by like one vote and it was a big melee but he and I Are Not like friendly. You know I don't understand why he is the pride of Kansas. After I moved here right as rules world series so right as they went the wizard team and I told Jeff that not knowing anything thing about Not Knowing anything about the past whatever I saw. I saw Chris once in person. Not as a slimy dude man I will not vote for that guy whatever happens. He's got a scary Talon. which is he can take really really malicious and bad policies disease and Sam in a in a very very reasonable anyway? It's very dangerous and I used to have this little fun thing. I would do with myself because we were both doing stoke so much stuff around the Kansas City area You mentioned like the thing with the royals I had this little fun thing I did. Where if his name came up? If people would ask about it I I would just think like okay. Who's the next team either? The chiefs the royals are playing and I would just drop in casual reference pretending. He was a huge fan of that team. So I the first time I ever did. It was when when we were in the AFC S in twenty fourteen against the Orioles. And somebody was like Whoa you know. Do you get along and I was like well. You know we've been talking to why but I'm pretty sure he's probably really hard core orioles fan as like so. I'm sure that he's just very busy this week. And then I but I never explain it. I just drop it in and leave it and and I did that for several years and I have no idea if he ever but in my dreams. I just hope that. He didn't event at some point where somebody was like. So you're like a huge raiders. Fan Right like that's okay. But you know you're not running for statewide office. That was my one little piece of like. That's my one. That's the one time I've engaged in. Fake News is just sort of a little gentle like just for fun for Myself Jason. Jason can't say that on this podcast gas. You will be trump on twitter you next week. That's Jason Candor engages in Fake News. That's been drafted cannot censor. Thank you so much for coming on thank you. Yeah we're doing. This is cool. Awesome right sounded off. I don't even know how to do that. I got it. Well thank you you guys so much for listening episode Fourteen Veterans Greenery Project. Thank you so much and always Graham.

"Really exciting troopers into space. Okay it is not starship troopers. It's not ranch. Acts roughnecks okay. That's not what space force is about. Who would do that though? Because you're saying then we'll then what do we need. Space for isn't as basically with the air force does the space force is about basically maintaining. It's it's about doing things that really the the air force specifically but also the army navy does already but putting it all under one roof. Okay where any military operations nations and again mostly as don't satellites and other things any military operations that type military operations that engage in what amounts to Brown support okay for the US military down. Earth is all getting put under the purview of these spacewalks. So there's not an and again a lot of that. Might you have to do with why there really wasn't much brought in from the say the Marines or the army you know it's sixteen thousand air force personnel and civilian personnel getting lumped into this new new group So it's almost and this should be seen as kind of strange It's almost like the military version. A militaristic version of NASA or version NASA meant to support the military. Ironically NASA really used to be more or less than department of the army but just like the air force was but that. That's that's neither here nor there So who would. Let's say there was some kind of threat in outer space. Whatever detection systems that the US Space Force Setup what exactly you know who who would end up sending troopers into space that would actually fall under. US The US Space Vase Command okay. which again it's eight? That's a joint command meaning that it has access to every branch of the military so they would be. US Space Command Command would be the one that ends up going and fighting that now would they use resources from the US face horse. Of course they would. They use it from every branch but supposedly you know that. That's that's the deal but there's there's a bit of funny business in how they have how they talked about the mission of because that's technically what would happen in in how that would work. Is that the. US face can do that. But there's a bit of funny business in the description of what the US Space Force What their mission is in? Actually here it is. This is right from AF DOT COM L. You know the air force website but that the US based force or it is the duty of the US face forced to protect the interests. The United States in space deter aggression in from and to space. So even though they say well this isn't you know only the the. US Face Command man would actually be sending troops into space This this is about aggression in space. which they're planning for which is kind of weird but let's keep reading And conduct prompt and sustained space operations. Now of course I mean that part speaks to where this is about operating in what the military already does and has operating in-space as in you know varying satellites and all this and their argument goes I mean anytime you have one of these joint command situations like the you went space command or US Space Command or when you have Well in this case heavy space force the idea is is that you have an organization where all of the data pertinent to a specific In this case say geography courses geography is space who you might be more than sixteen thousand people having it. You know getting that information. The military is always concerned with speed okay. How quickly really can we get the information from one place to another? And frankly that need for military's United States or the ancient Jefferson's quite frankly has been one of the driving forces in Really in the development of more advanced danced more and more advanced communications throughout the Millennia. in human history. I mean it has really has been one of the driving forces. How can we get information from one army to another quickly or quicker? And that's that's at first blush what this is all about but I think even trump said that the mission of the space forces basically clear as mud so they can say all they want what they think that it's about right now but we also have quotes from senators that are basically saying well. You know the space forced kind of organically grow into what it needs to be an all it now. I know there are people in the Senate and in Congress in general that are. Are you concerned about the lack of We'll show say the lack of vision Here you know it's like they're making star wars trilogy or the Star Star Wars sequel trilogy but nobody knows what Al.. It's actually all supposed to end. I mean you can't smacks of that rank Star Wars Program Ronald Reagan. Um Well I'm sure there's a direction we could go there that but we're not going to. I WANNA finish off with what is laid out in official documentation about the US space for us here So as the chief of space operations of course this is where they are referencing. A General John Raymond us-based Force General. Raymond leads the organizing organizing training equipping and maintaining of mission ready Space Forces and capabilities for us-based command And other combatant combatant commands around the world so basically they're saying yeah. This is about US getting ready to send troops in his face in all of that. I mean so yeah they can if they want to say well you know hey we made a space forcible look. This isn't about having more troops this isn't about sending troops into myspace actual that all be done by something already past few months ago that being the US baseman. I mean they're just playing dirty word games as far as that goes but part of why. I think that this finally passed even though yet so many people in Congress as well as members within the leadership of the military the US military saying. Hey how the fuck are we going to really pay for this. Hurry really going to Ford this. Yes it's going to come out partly out of the budget for the air force but then that's less budget budget being spent in air force. She point is so you do have a lot of people really questioning the existence of this thing but I think that this speaks to a much larger larger trend a larger zeitgeist. That's happening and this is something that I brought up I. I started really beating the UH beating the drum beating the drum on this twenty seventeen but it is also been something a theme that come out throughout two thousand eighteen and even twenty nineteen and that is I said I I know at least in two thousand seventeen I stated over and over again because we did a lot of stories of time covering what was happening in the Well with private industry mystery in going to outer space and how there were a lot of plans at that point I had said at that time that yeah I think in about ten years. Give give it about a decade and you're going to have Shall we say more every day. civilians citizens. Everyday people going up into space. That you know all this stuff that people have been talking about since the sixties and even before you know space hotels and all this other kind of crazy shit was finally going to start happening. I think that this announcement is bolstering that prediction. I think that it is absolutely bolstering. The idea that yeah Everyday everyday people are going to be going into space very soon and the US basically wants to keep things from turning into a free for all up there. And I use that term free for all in many different ways because you know many like myself. I'm an anarchist. Lot of anarchists have talked about about four decades. That the only way we're ever GONNA really have freedom is if we just leave get off of the earth and you get out there and just are able a to practice our own ideologies you know in our own our own types of community in perhaps even civilization. Now I think a lot of anarchists get way off the mark when they start planning with. That will actually look like. But that's besides the point bottom line being is that I'm sure the government does not again suddenly want this free for all were people can actually live their lives the way they want to in outer space ranted the. I don't WanNa say the terrors about the rigors of life in outer space I think would force you know not not government force but universal laws of physics force people into having to live in certain ways. But that's another conversation for another time in one we've had on sovereign tech in the past. But Yeah I think this is getting ready for that. I think that's ultimately what this is about. Because they're not real not yet. They're not really doing anything new. Okay they're not doing anything because what they're just taking over the satellites that the navy was using yesterday in that the air force is using yesterday in that the army was using yesterday and now it's all under I mean and I get it. I get the argument. The idea that you need to have the information collated quickly and it cannot be spread amongst a bunch of different divisions. You need everything. That's operating in in space under one command. I understand that I get the the logic. Even though the very notion of a military is completely illogical. Unethical I get the logic within the military military sense of that in why they're doing that but it's pretty clear when you don't even have to. You can even read the lines but then read a little bit between lines and it's pretty clear that yes. This is alternately. Ends up with a full-on military as in troopers in space. That's that's where this is going and you know on a very long time line. I don't like that because part of the reason that I have always been so excited to get into space outside outside of the You know desire to explore which is very Natan me Outside of that. I just you know I wanna live my life the way I I wanna live it and if I can go to outer space and not have to fucking deal with all the authoritarian structures that shouldn't even exist on this planet Hey sign me up. You know I'm there what you tell me the cost I will sign on the dotted line. I actually hit contracts but you get my point. This is probably to thwart that in some form or fashion. I mean if I wanted to get really conspiratorial I could say a couple words as in literally two words Even though maybe I some people away they'd spell it might be three but I could say a project blue beam but then you know. I probably lose all my sponsors if I started talking about that. How about that? Monetary Incentive. Yeah no I have no problem no problem talking about project. Blue Beam But that is now is not the time or place to discuss that but whoo oh boy does make one wonder so nothing. Good can come from this bottom line. I don't think anybody expected anything. Good to come from this. In fact even people within the military itself maybe the same people that are worried about. DNA tests being done by Personnel and as well as members of Congress think that this is not a good idea. Well I concur with them on this one if this is not a good idea and this is only going to lead to very very bad things for you and I the people people who just want to be left alone in this world so anyway. That's for the segment. We'll be right back with more cyber tech. We got something. Now it's going to get into No I will get it. We will get into a little upset. Man We gotta do. Our car.

So please do check that out so in frequenting our sponsors sponsors Helps out the show keeps independent voices like sovereign tech going. So that said. Yeah I mean I I think for a lot of people. The idea of a United States Space Force some people I think found in an inevitable I kinda founded inevitable's like the sooner or later you know they're going to send people up with guns. I mean not. That hasn't already happened but sooner or later that's going to happen but for others like yeah when pigs fly and of course those people will also probably think that the earth is flat but whatever you know I mean. Nobody's perfect and most people are stupid but they're not. I mean yeah I get it when pigs fly well while pigs may never fly. Maybe we'll go into space. I don't know what do fly our drones watching over and perhaps even infecting pigs what I know I know see. Here's this. This is called a double down or this it's called raising the stakes. That's what this is. Okay this is where you and I are playing. craps shooting craps or something like that. Whatever and I start tossing I toss in a couple of chips like yeah? Here's the US base for this means people are going to be you know everyday people are going to be going to space with the next ten years of course now to be intellectually honest. Yes it's got to happen within at least eight for me. So this is what's going to happen and then you say you bet against me like a fad. No No. There's no way Goldstein. Can't be right about that no matter how so much no matter how often no matter how much how almost every time the man is right. Can't be right and so then I say well here. I'm going to raise you and I put in some more chips in and because I want to tell you about something that reads like no science fiction novel I've ever read and let me assure you that the man of tomorrow Oh has read many science fiction novels in his thirty eight years on this blue-green ball. I mean I have read a lot and fact I've seen La Science fiction movies and I never seen this sort of thing in any science fiction movie or TV. Show or comic book. I I read this I go yet. The future is here. Of course it also doubles down on my notion that we live in a dystopia. But it's here and this. The story from the South China Morning Post China flight systems jammed by pig farms African swine fever defenses. The headline alone should make your head explode like wait what I can I can hear are you. You think this is one way communications actually two-way because in my brilliant I have developed telepathy and I can hear your thoughts. I can even hear it coming out of your mouth. We were saying Stellian. What does it all mean I'm gonNA reach? Its bylines reports real hero while future friends reports of criminal gangs using drones. I mean we could stop there. Let's going reports of criminal gangs using drones. I mean that's not that unbelievable right governments use drones and their criminal gangs sorry Reports of criminal gangs using drones to spread infection led into installation of jamming devices. Miri the next one. Unauthorized equipment interfered with navigation. Systems of planes anes flying overhead. This is exactly as crazy as it sounds. This is exactly what it sounds like. You have picked farmers gang. porks a big doc deal in China you have pig farmers in China You're right now. There's actually this while I mean there's there's a dairy an an epidemic of African swine fever amongst pigs and actually there's some companies in China. They're getting very rich off of this right now because if they're pigs aren't infected by this African swine fever You know they're they have healthy pork to sell pork. Prices are going through the roof and thus the the stocks for these pork companies are going through the roof. This is totally real. This is happening in. Lincoln has shown us if you want to read more about some of this stuff because there's a bunch of links within the story okay but but this is exactly what it sounds like you have pig. Farmers who are claiming that there are criminal gangs using using drones to infect their pigs with African swine fever. Okay I mean you that half of it is the future in and of itself right like we. We have criminal gangs that their mission in life is to use drones to engage in a biological terror. Okay or biological I mean agricultural warfare. Okay that's happening. But then the farmers get wiesner like well God damn it. We're going to set up some microwave jammers and we're and we're GONNA. I mean pitcher these farms with like with like these microwave jamming gunslinger turrets on the barbed wire fences and everything. And they're just. They're just trying to jam all these drones from getting at their pigs and infecting their pigs. This is this is a real this twenty thousand nine. Well the future baby. This is going down and apparently though planes might be going down because of this because he's microwave jammers Are fucking with the The systems on jeter and I will not just yet it but airplanes and general. He believes let me read story. If you don't don't believe me here. We go a Chinese pig farms attempt to ward off drones. That sentence alone said to be spreading African swine fever jammed the navigation systems of a number of planes flying overhead. The farm in northeastern China was ordered last month to turn in an unauthorized anti drone device. Steinberg and I love that. That exists boy. You you WANNA buy stuff i. This is the stuff I want to buy from. China baby woke me up one of these fucking drones around me yeah. Let's do this anyway. Unauthorized anti-drug device installed to prevent criminal gangs dropping items infected with disease according to online news portal the paper Dot C. N.. So so that's a big deal. In China. I guess the device came to light after a series of flights to and from Harbin Airport complained about losing. GPS signals while flying over Shenzhou a county don't know how to pronounce these but anyway in late October of two thousand nineteen in some cases. The eighty eighty s dash be tracking technology. which determines an aircraft's position via satellite Natalie navigation failed so literally a plane could potentially crash from this not because it's like shutting down the plane but losing gps and who knows what could end up happening anyway? Ah Check on radio. blockers in the area identified the farm and its owner They give the name of Heilongjiang. There's no way I'm seeing this right Dying young young agricultural and pastoral food was ordered to turn in the equipment. That sounds like a very big business. So maybe they could afford that sort of thing. No further punishment was imposed The paper reported the company declined a request for comment Chinese state media reported last week. That gangs were exploiting the African swine fever crisis by deliberately spreading the disease by using drones to drop infected acted items onto pig farms. The farmers are then forced to sell me cheaply to the gangs who then sell it on as healthy stock. According to a China comment magazine which is is affiliated to state news agency. Xinhua in more or maybe shall Xiaohua anyway. In more common cases according to the magazine the criminal spread rumors about the the presence of the virus to achieve H. E. purchase price pork prices have more than doubled in China's millions of pigs have been slaughtered since the first case of African swine. Fever was identified in Shenyang in in August last year. The disease is fatal to pigs but does but does not pose a threat to humans. But folks I mean. Let's just talk about this even if it's not really happening right because there's a potential that this company's full of crap They are using real anti drone technologies. I'm guessing assing their microwave jammers. That's generally how you do it. Okay but regardless. This is a real thing. This kind of thing is happening on farms. Drones Are genuine danger with all the stuff I mean this is. What's the solution here? I mean easy says link will let you know. Let's all get microwave. Jammers make drowns useless. Well that's GonNa fuck with a whole lot of other other things in civilization perhaps like airplanes but regardless of that. I mean the story can come with no comment because it's just so unbelievable that this is really happening. I can't believe it like I just I never would have I and I'm I'm a creative guy and I write science fiction and I would have never written criminal. Gangs used drones to spread spread Swine fever or whatever ever to affect the economic price of pork and farmers farmers. You know those people who are very much ahead of the game and I farm listeners. And I know how smart you are but you my point. Farmers are using anti drone technology. You have to take these things out. I mean this is this is crazy and you wanna tell me. This is far more nuts than the idea that everyday people are going to be hanging out in space ten years and that there's going to be a you know the US or he has space military You know going I mean fuck you know what I didn't even bring up in a in the whole. US four story. I mean I could have. I could've gone there. Is You know we add in the past where a hecker This is this is twenty twenty years ago where a hacker broke into. I mean it wasn't really a hack who is more like oh I found a dod server. What's on here but regardless where he founded the od server ever and he claims to this day? And he's trying to keep from getting extradited out of Britain he claims that he saw listings for A bunch of naval vessels but the naval vessels aren't as in like on water their naval vessels that are in outer space. His claim is there's already ready us-based force and there has been one for a very long time. I'm not even going there but frankly even that none of that to me. I mean that's the you know. Those are grandma's folktales compared to this story. We got Chinese farmers using microwave jammers against drones that are spreading African swine. For what the fuck. Hi How did that sends come out of my mouth. I'm an off of this. We live in wild times. Why I hope fucking times and the one thing I'll say is that I'm glad that at least somewhere you can actually buy this shit and I mean if you want to talk about the solution to this? Yeah I get editing. Could mess with airplanes and that really does suck But I I want to buy some of these some of the anti-drunk Technology I wanNA ray now doc. Maybe I'm GONNA do a little research on this because man if I ever saw a drone in my yard or something like that oh I know the laws around this like. You're not supposed to be able to do anything you you're not supposed to Attack them or damage them or do anything like that. I'll take my chances in fact. Give me my fucking day in court court where I I can I can speak for you know even five minutes man. I will make such a steak. I I always say anytime. Somebody threatens to take me to court. I'm always just like yeah. Make me famous. Give me a story that would put the manner tomorrow. You know in in some kind of major news organization Ohio whole or news channel. Who Give it to me baby cause you just wait until the things I believe me I know never mind? I'm not gonNA surprise so whatever if I ever see any of these things. Yeah you better believe it. I'd be buying things just like these pig farmers and Y- Yup I mean let let let's make the stuff commonplace. I'm glad that it's already developed in that individuals. I mean granted. The sounds like it's a big. This isn't just some farmers. This is probably a large company That it's accessible to them to purchase That is nothing but hopeful. I hate that word but there is nothing but good news about that. That's nothing but good news for us that we can buy anti-drunk technology. Let's start chewing that shit up anyway. I'll be right back with our picks of two thousand Nineteen Best Movie Best Comic Best Best Music on your best album. We got so many things to best game got straight up to cover. I'll be right back with some more sabretech going. Hey Baby I know I know you are tired of g mail. You have had enough well. I have a solution for for you what I want you do. is you go to fast mail.

And it's an honor to have them as part of sovereign tech who let's get back to the show in a climax it is signed for the climax worthy man. Tomorrow Get's talk about whatever the hell he wants to talk about and we got to get in a yearly tradition on sovereign tech and that is every year at the end of the year. Though sometimes I've had to do it like later in January regardless every year. We go over what I think were the best of the best. Okay not the best stories. I mean that could be kind of interesting but really I mean and in fact maybe what I'll do in a couple of weeks on an episode in Twenty Twenty and maybe January twenty twenty do best picks of the decade about that right. That could be a lot of fun but I WANNA get in the best picks of twenty nineteen before the year ends and do remember this episodes coming out on a Monday. Sovereign Tech going into twenty twenty now gets released on Mondays. It is now a Monday. Show here to cure your case of the Mondays and a lot of other stuff that could cure your case is the monies. Are these picks in my opinion because I am brutal in my taste in my reviews and in what I expect out of my entertainment. And that's what we're going to be covering here because I can talk about whatever I want to during the segment of the show. But let's do it and opening her up. How about we start with Vic I say this I think I said the sign a q eight but When you cut me baby I mean it's just is Comic Book Inc.? Just just porce right out. It's all replace faculty array now Holy Shit Look at well victim just bled all over. The place was comic booking everywhere and it turned out to be a great iron man comic. Well that's been thirty years since we've had that well how about that You know what else might be fun. I didn't do this but like worse to the year. You know worse. The twentieth eighteen could be a lot more fun. But you know I feel like I'm always complaining and I don't want to complain i WanNa talk about something. Good Benicia was actually really good WE'RE GONNA go down so but we're going to open it up with best comic of Twenty nineteen and I have to hand off to. I could really handed off to the entire universe. I save one part of it and in fact speaking of Marvel I mean in general I think marvel is really in the past few years more or less sense. The marvel cinematic universe came out They have been there while there have been a couple of reprieves in this. They have really been doing the absolute worst comic books that they have ever ever done. there hasn't been a really great exciting one year. Run as an I mean a good twelve issue run Of any title that I can think of the Marvel Marvel puts out there. They are making complete impure shit. These days I mean it's tragic. Actually how how Shitty Just about every marvel title is out there and it just gets worse like they they talk about double down they double failure not say the DC is doing much better though DC does have the Green Lantern Comic The Grant Grant Morrison's been doing which has been top notch That is a comic series action. That could have taken a best comic for twenty nineteen. But I'm GonNa give the devil. His due not doubles new comics comics. No I'M GONNA give. The devil is do that being marvel. they in my opinion. Have without you know retreading stuff. They they have the best comic book running this year Best Comic Book Universe actually running this year and in fact they have tied it into their larger marvel universe with with savage avengers. But but also think that's the weakest part of all this But they recently reacquired the rights to doing CONAN comics as in Conan the barbarian right who darkhorse was previously previously. Doing for a while but before then of course marvel kind of started. I mean there's an easy argument to be made that in the seventies that marvel really made CONAN the household the name that it took to get a CONAN movie. Which of course is one of the greatest movies ever made Arnold Schwartzenegger just tore up the stair the screen You know the normal normal really did that. I mean you know Robert Howard. I mean the Conan books when he wrote them back in the early twentieth century. I mean we're White-hot and Robbie Howard was a master of his craft but admittedly marvel did great work with Conan and that tradition. Has that speaking of that. Tradition has not stopped Ever since they came out with Conan the barbarian number one They have really been on a tear with that. I would argue because they actually have a bunch of series like they have the age of Conan series running. They also have savage avengers. Like I mentioned they have a couple of other titles running with it but savage sword of Conan specifically I think has been the best title with an everything marvel's doing Conan. I think they know they ever winner on their hands like these sales numbers must be going through the roof because they have spared or they have wasted no time in getting a lot of CONAN universe. Titles out out very very quickly twenty nineteen and I mean a lot and they and this is not always true for comic book series or issues. you know these. These issues have been coming out like clockwork like they're really been no delays that I could tell This is a comic that I read day. One you don't as soon as it drops drops I'm reading an issue of it They do much better job of solving one of the issues in modern comic books where we have. These massive story ARCS not say. Coney doesn't doesn't have them but the single issue still feel very self contained even if they are telling some kind of story ARC. That is not an easy thing to do today for some reason. I don't know why that's not easy to do. But it appeared. That appears to be the case. CONAN does not have that problem though were they are running into these. Massive story ARCS like the star. Wars comics had these huge story. ARCS that take way too long to pay off that. And you don't get enough within an issue that makes it feel self contained where you felt good about what you just read From one month to the next Conan doesn't have that issue I've again. I re every series but savage sort of Conan specifically thought. It's been fantastic. I've even been impressed where they will put put a chapter from a novel that at the end of it you are getting a lot of bang for your buck with Conan comic books ever since Marvel took over dark horses. Doing a great job got coins. One of my favorite literary characters of all time right up there were Sherlock Holmes but yeah I mean I gotta give Marvel do they. They have done a bang-up job With with CONAN. I mean they've really done a great job there. I could have easily given best comic between nineteen to power Rangers again which really really year-over-year is consistently the best comic bar. None no matter what company we're talking about the shattered grid event. That happened with power. Rangers has been phenomenal. I mean I. It's been another another great year for Power Rangers. I see no sign even though now they're already talking about another power Rangers reboot which holy fuck why You know in movies movies okay or maybe a TV series. I don't not not a TV series and movies. I think we're specifically talking about but this comic book has been an absolute winter ever since bloom studio started a years ago and it's always my favorite comic. It's another day one read So I could have easily picked that but again I would have been picking it again because they keep picking it almost every year so I wanted to go with something a little bit different honorable mention to Van Parrella Vam Perello restarted in twenty nineteen and and that has been a nice return to vamp relatives. Much more sexier routes as well as frankly a lot more gory Like I I've I've really enjoyed what they've been doing. Van Parrella this year. She's also been in a lot of crossovers that have worked really well so honorable mention there. But I gotta give it to Sandwich SORTA CONAN ED. I'm amazed at how fun that is to read Let's go to best album. We'll do that next. No real order here. Let's go to best album music wise. I I am not going to do a best soundtrack that that's so tough to pick but regardless Best album overall. This is a no brainer. This is something in fact if you listen to so many underground Episodes I've talked about this many times. I've already said over and over again. There's there's just no album that is going the top this and I dare say that I mean I'll I'll let this out if I do like a best of for the decade. Okay pay for you know from twenty ten to twenty nineteen or however we want to whatever years with Iraq that up as this is easily GonNa win. Album of the decade is well. It's so good this. I haven't had an album in in fifteen years where I just you know I just played it over and over and over again and pretty pretty much every song so beast and black from hell with love masterpiece masterpiece black just new fairly new band coming got a battle beast which they had come out this year as well called no more Hollywood endings which was a tremendous album that could have just as easily or not as easily but that could have just as well take an album of two thousand nineteen but no nothing? Nothing is topping Beast and blacks from Hell with love. If you haven't listened to a yet I I don't know why I've talked about it all year long. It is album to beat and I think the only people that could ever beat it. Frankly is another beast and black album. That's the only thing that could imagine. That could top. It is so solid But you know honorable mention here. I guess I'll bring one up white snakes flesh and blood. They came out in May is fucking awesome. Like what a great whitesnake album. I don't WanNa say it's my favorite. You know it's tough to find anything that could actually beat Whitesnake self title title but it's Pretty Damn close. I mean Song for Song I can listen to this whole album and of course ellen. I saw them in concert this year boy boy. What an amazing night that was for well a lot of reasons? Whitesnake certainly highlight who but yeah flesh and blood blood. What a great album man whitesnake? And there's no reason like David Coverdale sniff come out new music. He doesn't have to do one of the best albums he's ever done in twenty nineteen fuck sacred with the musical pedigree. That guy's got give me a break but he does. It was great album so but L. Malir totally goes to be some black from health. Best movie this one was tough this one. This was actually a tough. I I was thinking about it. I had to look through the entire list of movies. That have come out I absolutely refused to pick pick any movie from From Net flicks I'll actually you know I'll I'll I'll get on Spielberg side on that. That Spielberg thinks that netflix movie should not be counted in like the Oscars for anything Yeah I mean. I don't think netflix movies should really get counted in much of anything. I hate that company even though even though as far as best of over the past few years net flicks content has been in on that game regardless This was tough and it really it. It should have been easy because you know what should have won best movie of the year it should have been star wars rise skywalker. Obviously it's not. Oh boy so you know the more I sit on that film it Kinda gets worse not better but like I said with an I said this When identified renegades rob when the book the expanded edition novelization of rises skywalker comes out? I bet that's going to be a great book. Look because if you can fix a lot of the cinematography issues of that film and flesh out some story points I think you've got the winner of a story there. Okay 'cause like like I said there's a lot of great ideas in that movie They're just not executed or there's not enough of it but in a book you can take all the time time in the world so I'm for that but anyway we'll get into best book may be here in a minute but Best movie you know it. It's a tossup breath between Alina battle angel and four versus Ferrari. I mean you know I called. I said four verse for our. It's a perfect movie. I mean it really is a perfect movie. It's not my brand. It's not really like my kind of movie that I would normally watch even though I can enjoy days of thunder as much as the next guy. Okay but But I'M GONNA I'm it's so tough to pick between those two but I was so impressed at just how good alita battle angel was. It was such a surprise to me. that I kinda they don't WanNa give it to that because surprise those far as we're talking about execution certainly Ford versus Ferrari again. It is a literally perfect film It is remarkable. How perfect you know that? That movie is And I'M NOT GONNA get into an argument about dad movies right now. I want to because I hate that Kinda Shit but save that for another time. So we'll we'll run with those now best now. We'll save best book best TV series. This this is where net flicks actually has been winning for a while but mainly because of stuff that well people with the right names and the right cachet have put together I have said that both voltron legendary defender and also the castle series. Both of those series have really been the top things that would count as ATV series Going for the past few years and that's still very true Castle Vania is. It's it's mind boggling. How great that is Voltron was I mean. That's just some of the best and not just animated as some of the best TV wherever going to get. We're just ever. We're going to get voltron decorate and it's still an insult that that has not had it proper home video release you can get all seasons castle for whatever goddamn reason. You can't can't get a BLU ray set of Voltron. I don't understand that but regardless neither of those going to win this year because they didn't come out they didn't do anything. Twenty nineteen even though we did think kesselman senior season three might have dropped in December twenty nineteen. Looks like that didn't happen if it did. I miss the But if it did it probably would have ended up taking show of twenty nineteen but because because it's not here we've got to give it to none other than speaking of Star Wars. The man delorean The man delorean. This is is the show that without this show I would basically have already written off star wars the man the Laurien. I've already reviewed it multiple times. I've done reviews on T. F. R. I've talked about it overall episodes of sovereign tech. You know what else can I say about it. Of course now we have had the entire series all eight episodes tailored. I'm not gonNA give spoilers here. I'm just going to say that this is you know again. It's cliche now that everybody says while the Star Wars done right you know. There's so much being done right in this. And it's not just about star wars but yes it is getting star wars right but the amount of connecting with the broader Star Awards Universe is. What makes this show so special for me? Because it's amazingly the critics and Star Wars fans critics and your your everyday. TV watcher whatever. Disney plus user. There's only like I was looking at numbers. There's only a one percent cent difference in score. And it's ninety four percents compared to ninety three percent if you look at star wars movies. Those numbers do not equate lately. There are wild differences between what critics it extinct and what fans think in so. I think that says is that this is one of those shows that we used to get fairly often. That has something for everybody. Okay and I mean it really does from the cute. And most people know what I'm talking about their to the great action to the bad assery to the believability to the And and again the biggest thing for me is how it really does connect you know it takes everything I know about star wars and I know a lot like technical stuff you know now like from technical manuals of Star Wars in universe and it implements it and it says it by name and I mean and I just I love that but it does all that which the reason. I get told that more shows don't do that. Don't appeal to broader aspects like it won't it won't Reference novels or comic books or games or things like at this. I get told it won't do that because if you do that. Nobody else will get it. Well the mandatory improves that. That idea is absolute bullshit because because it references books comics technical stuff I mean they even like they they repeat multiple times the technical names of blasters in the show. Oh that's all I want you to do. You know it's like just you know when I know the name and I hear it gets that allowed in universe makes me feel that I am in the university grosses me and what I am seeing in the mandatory unjust fucking does and it does so well everybody loves it. Most people love it. I think it's fantastic. It's easily easily the best show going. And even if you're not a star wars fan I think you can start watching it and you just get engrossed with what's going on because you can't help but want to know what's coming next it is dynamite. It is so just a tremendous show and we do now know that season two coming in fall. Twenty twenty. Can't wait baby can't wait now so I don't really have seventy honorable. Mentions because the bulk of what's on. TV sucks so You know I don't have anything else. Really really to put out there but let's go to best book This is another one. That's tough but it's not tough because there weren't great books that came out in twenty nineteen. I'm sure there were plenty. It's tough because I'm still me being a person that actually cares about a consuming consuming. Great Art Obviously I don't consume much of what comes out today. That's not say there are great books that come out today. There are one of my pictures from twenty nineteen is far ars books. Go Okay actually. Both are but once kind of kind of cheat but you know I. I'd like to know that I'm not wasting my time. And so I like to read a lot of the classics right or I like to read back at a time when people you know when you know that the author Also read had a lot of books. You can clearly see influences and so on and it's not just people putting out some I don't know you know it's not fifty shades of grey right. It's not some Even though I do well anyway. I'm not going to get in that. That conversation point being is that I read many many books a year but most of them are like books that that have been out of print for decades Or they are classics. or It's you know I don't really like in twenty thirty. Maybe I'll read some books. Awesome Point Nineteen by that point but we all have so many books that we need to catch up on and I say that yes. You need to read these classic books. you know we we have. We have so much to catch up on. We're all still catching up right. But a book did come out in two thousand nineteen got a rerelease and so I'm GonNA mention it's it's kind of going to be my pick but then I'm GonNa give you another because I'm going to give you fiction and nonfiction. Okay but my fiction pick for two thousand nineteen release and it's the novelization written bye. Gene Roddenberry himself for Star Trek the motion picture. It's the fortieth anniversary release. I consider this to be one of the top science fiction novels ever written written. You don't have to know anything about Star Trek two.

Reminding you will spread liberty with a smile without getting bloated or overblown. Like perhaps another game. That's going to be on this list. Did and I love it. I love it. And it's a game that anybody can pick up and play but when you really master it you are in for great time and the elements of I mean it very very much plays like Like the classic versus Capcom Games right like marvel versus Capcom Capcom Processing K.. And so on like the elements are there and it just this works so well You know the fact that you can call on Zords like Dragonzord magazine or even Goldar to come in at certain points that the triple tag team battle that it's so solid and they've been coming out with great content for all year long The characters that you get to play the fact that Lord Drake on's in it like I Liam it the thing that blew my mind about this and what made an absolute purchase I have it on the switch was that I don't know any franchise is that because the storyline in this has to do with Lord Drake on. Okay I can't think of any franchise that's as big that's as popular that's spent so much that has been so much time and banked a very expensive game to produce that banked on the comic book version version of the franchise MS clear power. Rangers is basically a toy line with the TV show. Okay and yeah. There's some good movies or while there's a good movie. There is what there is okay as far as movies go but no. They really basis game largely around the comic book. I can't believe that but if you didn't believe me that power rangers. The comic book is Great and understand the convert for powering. Gers is not aimed anywhere. We're near the demographic of WHO watches. TV show to this day. It's just not. It is for adults no question. Boom studios doesn't waste time and with that that Shit. There's there are power rangers comics that are clearly meant for kids out there but the main series and the series like with Lord Drake on who is basically the he continually evil version of Tommy the Green Ranger with mixed in with White Ranger powers. It's so cool. My favorite power rangers character now The video game delivers on that battle for the grid I I'm in awe of that and the game as far as I know is doing very well and I couldn't be happier about it and it's worth it because it's it's a great fighting game so power. Rangers battled for the grid. I give that for for twenty nineteen. It's got everything you want. You can play this game forever. It's easily my most played game on switch. Maybe maybe next the tetris ninety nine But its beauty next game for twenty For well for two hundred nineteen a moral commented eleven awesome. It's bloated. There is way too much shit in this game but man you could play this game for the next ten years there so much. I love the mortal World Combat Games so much And they never failed to disappoint the the amount of pageantry and presentation in these Games is really second to none for any other game series in the fact that you have a studio that basically rises and falls I mean and this is all they do all they do is make mortal Kombat Games news and you more or less other than mortal Kombat mobile yet like one a year right odd believable and the character leases. That happened this year. Getting the Terminator in there her and everybody else. Fox's it is an awesome game. The online play as amazing switch version is mind boggling to play this reportedly it is it. It is pure dynamite in a digital download Mortal combat eleven. Just just a masterpiece you know and I mean granted. I'll out brand-new that smash brothers. Ultimate is probably a better fighting game I think that technically came out in two thousand eighteen. So I couldn't give it to that and it's roster is is bigger but just the presentation comment eleven brings his just incomparable I. It's so stunning. Such a stunning game. No matter what platform you played on But now if you want something you know I'm known for being more of a retro Gamer and those two are very newer titles We did get a tremendous game that plays in the retro style in two thousand nineteen that came out for basically every platform every console even PC. I mean it's everywhere. Blazing chrome blazing chrome just. I am done by little indie developer. Awesome game this is and it's funny 'cause we did get a contra game this year this is a love letter to the Contra Entre Games and we haven't had like a really great contra games since contrafor shattered soldier for. PS Two is great but blazing chrome is a phenomenal Donald. Just lots of fun. Total eighties nineties throwback you know all the lasers and cheese you could want in in a video game you know with that Classic Contra Contra style right that you remember from Super C and Alii wars and so on Very very impressed by this game of just how how tight everything feels on it And how instantly if you play Contra are you just pick this up and you just go and you're running with it and you're doing the business Awesome game same awesome game. Could I mean totally. It's a much smaller game than power rangers and Mortal Kombat eleven but to-to-to it stands as an absolute achievement even in gaming and shows that well classic style can still make for game in two thousand nineteen. That doesn't surprise me at all. But I think some people need that to be proven every once in a while we'll blazing promo is your proof and twenty nineteen four so you got a lot of great stuff to check out a lot of great things came out in twenty nineteen entertainment winds. Even though I've been pooh-poohing entertainment aldus does here. There's still been some great shit That have come out but I I gotTA admit like other than four versus Ferrari. It was kind of tough to pick a movie for for twenty nineteen. It was not not the best year I mean. Godzilla was pretty good. That came out this year there. There are some Hobson. Shaw was good but I mean I guess I'm just saying for twenty nineteen okay. These movies can be good but in the grand scheme of movie history. There's there's not a movie here that stands up to anything that came out in nineteen ninety nine not even close right. That's a fact of life so anyway but still tons of great stuff to check out so I'm going to ramp this baby up. Make sure dot com and join me one underground the tons more content.

I think he's been listening to sovereign tech silence one production production. Now go out there and make some trouble We have some good news the indictments against Russell bricked richton. The district of Maryland were dismissed with prejudice meaning. They can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that Ross engaged in murder murder-for-hire this was a serious allegation at Ross. ULBRICHT denies it was never prosecuted or ruled on by a jury. PUTT was trumpeted by the federal government and the media. As if it were proven. In fact the Maryland Court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning. Ross's case and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained enrolls appeal to the Supreme Court. The fact that the the judge used these allegations to give her all your Conan's sentence of Double Life Without Parole violated his sixth amendment right to a jury trial. Judges are required to issue. Sentences based on convictions. Decided decided by a jury. Not Unproven. Allegations never even charged at trial. Although this is a positive development that dropped indictment will not set Ross free now. A presidential pardon is Ross is only hope of freedom signed the petition at free.

You don't want to miss any of them and guys with that being said I am going to get to the interview here in just a minute. Couple things I wanNA talk about because there's a lot going going on right now. Beginning of a New Year. Some things happening in the criminal justice system that I feel need to be addressed. So I'm going to address them and I'll we'll do a right before this interview. Me Real quick. And maybe there's maybe going forward. This'll be something. I'll do more often. Maybe not we'll see mixing it up on the first podcast twenty twenty so I have to talk about the spending bill that Donald Trump signed that included in it a change to the he law that raised the federal legal age for purchase for purchasing tobacco from eighteen to twenty one years old. Now on the surface here you know people might look at this you know. Suzy Mini van or the you know the typical American family out there. The MOM and dad look at a lot like this. Look at a change in law. Well the stuff bad here. It's making it harder for my kid to get cigarettes. That's good right. I don't want the smoking cigarettes and you know what I don't want my kids smoking cigarettes cigarettes either. I don't want anyone's talking cigarettes. They're not really good for you. I have good friends that smoke doc. And it's bad for them but you know what what they WANNA do. And who am I to stop them from doing what they WANNA do. And at the end of the day. Hey it's a personal choice for adults but also it's a personal choice. A kid who's eighteen years old sixteen years old. You know they. He can make the choice if they WANNA smoke cigarettes. It shouldn't be a law against doing it. I'm not saying they should do it. But more importantly by creating in this law they are without a doubt making it more dangerous for these kids who just because there's a law saying they can't smoke cigarettes twenty-one if anything that's GONNA make it more likely that they want to smoke cigarettes do something it's forbidden and so that's going to who Add instead of buying cigarettes from you know a cvs a right eight a gas station somewhere where it's well let's and it sold from a the repeatable dealer now the buy from somebody in a back alley the Bhai from some nefarious character. The by someone who really doesn't doesn't give a shit about the health or well-being child and it introduces the black market and the black market can definitely have some bad actors in without a doubt and something that I come back to immediately when talking about this with people. Is You know people call marijuana a gateway drug doc. It's not the reason people think marijuana is a gateway drug is because often people start with marijuana. It's the first drug that they try back. And then they'll try other drugs from their. The reason why that happens is because in order to smoke. Marijuana this is changing. Now of course has been legalized in several states A medical and also recreationally so that marijuana laws are changing but there's still holds true in the vast majority of the country so if somebody wants to smoke marijuana I WANNA go buy it from someone the black market from a dealer that person most of the time is selling more things than just marijuana. Young impressionable kids are more likely to be pushed to be influenced to be persuaded manipulated to try other drugs other than marijuana. The same thing Eh is going to happen with cigarettes because kids are going to want to continue to smoke cigarettes or start to smoke cigarettes because it's what kids do and kids kids are stupid. What do you want me to say? It's up to the parents to figure this out. It's not up to the government to come in and make this law if as a parent. You don't want your kids smoke cigarettes when they're when they turn sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty whatever. Talk to them. Explain to them why they shouldn't be smoking. Cigarettes explained explain to them the health the health risks. And do it in a way that you're not being a jerk that makes them want to just tell you to screw off and go do it anyway. It's called old learning how to influence the persuade people. It's most important to do it with your own kids. Maybe parents need to learn a little bit about that American parents all right. That's enough of a rant. There did not plan to talk that long. The other thing that I wanted and of course the other aspect of that is trump has also been doing the same thing thing with vaping or I should say legislators ever do the same thing with vaping attacking The vaping market taking flavors flavored vapes off the market. When because there's this crazy about lung issues? Being tied to kids vaping ninety nine percent of the lung issues shoes are tied to elicit black market. THC vapes not ones. You're buying over the counter. So what do they do while they make it so do more and more of these baby products are going to be bought off the black market because now they're not sold in stores so great job politicians. That's fantastic job making life less safe for your children. Second thing I want to talk about very very important. Donald Trump. Nothing has happened here. Legislatively legislatively from the executive executive orders standpoint but in a meeting with AIDS and other lawmakers he floated the idea of of raising the age the Federal Minimum Age to buy a rifle a long gun to twenty one years old. Currently I think in most states if not all states dates you can buy a rifle. When you're eighteen some states for hunting you can buy rifle under fourteen or sixteen especially a midwestern states. Like Montana I I believe in places like that because you know you gotta be able to hunt. That's that's what you do out there but this is so incredibly dangerous and and from I mean people come at this from the perspective or from the angle that if you know if individuals first of all if you can if you was going to say if you can volunteer to sign up for the draft out if you can be coerced into signing up for the military draft his nineteen year old in the United States so they can tell you to go too far away land with a gun and shoot someone you don't know but at home you're not allowed how to buy a long gone by a rifle to defend yourself from someone breaking into your house maybe to defend your family. We're to defend yourself from the government. Don't which is equally as important from from tyrants in the government so this is a very very scary law. Aw and what's even more scary is Republicans who are supposed to be Protectors of the Second Amendment supposed to be advocates for gun rights And silence hearing nothing. Because it's Donald Trump. They can't criticize him. Barack Obama never floated ideas like this. It Barack Gabow had floated an idea like this. It would have been a gun rush to for everyone to arm up. Because Barack Obama's coming for your children's guns guns it would have been it would have been all over the News Fox News would have been talking about it for weeks but because it's donald trump crickets. You don't hear anything about guys. I just wanted to talk about these topics today. I think they're very important and a lot of people out there you don't hear about this. Don't hear about topics like this from a whatever. You Want Libertarian perspective. I think this is just a reasonable rational perspective. Active this is logic looking at both of these issues. So share this with your with your friends shared with your Democrat Republican infringer independent friends. They might hate it. They might hate me. I don't care if they do hate this which they might. I guarantee you. They're not gonNA hate what they hear from my guests. Because I have an awesome guests lined up today to share his story. So let's get to it my guest today on felony Friday. They is Karo Fort. Kara was initially sentenced to life in federal prison for a drug related offense in two thousand sixteen. The Federal Government did grant his petition for a reduced sense and reduced it to thirty years and he was released from prison in January of this year and today he is here on felony Friday to share his story. Karl Welcome to felony Friday. Yeah thank you. I'm glad to be on the show. Okay well thank you for coming on the show and being willing to talk about your your your story and share what you've been through. You know I wanNA talk about the events that led to your sense but before we get to that just to give my audience background of where you come from and who. Oh you are if you could just I talk about your background where you grew up What life was like for you growing up where I grew? You're pro Rockford Illinois on the west side of fruits and I was living there all my life. I basically so you know like every other normal kid too you know when Incident took a toll in our household to where my parents has the sippy rating. So you know when when the house broke up Noah it up going my way and I went to the street and that's where I found my love and my to the streets of one thing led to another. I ended up catching the case a federal case ace and I went to trial and they gave me a license and at the time I didn't know nothing about a hundred to one. Drug ratio is seeded. Understood that here's say can be admissible in the federal corner lump like man. Wow also like a wake-up experience to me. He's going through the trials. 'cause I never I never With two trial always had this list epic poem near here but this time I went to trial and ended up getting convicted for drug conspiracy. And the the only thing about it is cranked is no different than powder. So whoever came up with this assumption about is worse Sir is worse it. It's not it's the same thing So so let me ask you you. You said you had some you know some some run INS with the law prior to that. How old were you the first time that you had an arrest? I think got was a seventeen eight. Eighty two And that one so that just didn't it just preliminary charges and then you didn't. You didn't go to trial. Didn't go to trial because they they they can find a witness They dismissed the case. So so when you say you went with your family growing up and you went to the streets rates were you involved with gang related activity or what type of stuff are you doing. Yeah I I was part of a street organization organisation. Yeah you know I can't say you know I I do custom the some I love. And that's what I love. Because they were showing me love tube so you know and they was educated about being a man you know so I was basely to responsibility. Uh raising was in the neighborhood. Yeah so fast forward to when you do get you catch this case and you get convicted. You said you took it to trial. What was the reason? Did they offer you a plea deal. At that time. They had offered me a plea thirty years. He is a little like thirty years so I didn't know how much thirty years because they don't say it in years. They say like three hundred sixty months on my three hundred sixty so what. I'll do all that when they tell me. I said man eight craze that was that was for how much Three hundred US US sixty months. That's thirty years that's like that's ever for how much for how much crack well we. We didn't get caught with crack. Her testimony in the trial led up to the amounts jury. They'll find me guilty or no drug among the judge to pull this up to senator to To the the stuff that cooperated with evidence as so based on whatever if they bring a cooperating witness up and they say there's this amount they count that towards. Yeah Yeah Okay I say They probably would guy pricey. He was working for us for six months and he was making a day ten thousand dollars a day but he probably wasn't making no two thousand dollars if they 'cause you have some good days he has some bad uh-huh that's that's so crazy that they get away with that they're taking this obviously the the people who are testify and the people who are witnesses for the prosecution. They're compromised. I mean they're getting favors in return right for their sentences to be reduced us us. It's a racket so you end up getting the sense life in prison right. What were your first thoughts at that point in time when you heard that was soon you know my first dog? I've been lands my understand. It was zero. No I'm glad I was in a el-sisi Chicago because you know I had a lot of older men around me. That was kind of schooling me. Dan Telling me what I should do. House maneuvering prison and stuff like that so going to prison and having a good retort. Oh my name so so were you. Did you move around to a bunch of different prisons. or where'd you spend the majority of time where I moved around like. I've been to Leavenworth When it was a US P? I've been the floor was US p.. And I've been I've been the poll lot Louisiana Seattle U. S. P. and I've been to tear her U. S. p. and then I went to Oxford. LCI got released from my and your you did a total of twenty five years twenty six. She is twenty six years nine months. So how did you. How were you able to when when you're in prison you're facing long sense? I mean I guess we first before I ask that. So you're facing a life sentence and you said that you had people older people in the president kind of took you under. Are there wing. What type of advice did they give you to deal with that? It's an to navigate into to mentally deal with the potentially being in prison for life. Oh well they just probably you know how no don't don't don't be socializing with a lot of people. Don't spreads of Self Dan dealing with a lot of people. Because you know a lot of people don't mean you no good in prison. You know you you got a lot. You got some good ones but I love you been in the streets you you'll you'll good judge. You know which one is all BS which one on this health you said you had good behavior while you were imprisoned. At what point did you start to think that you know. Maybe you can get some sort of clemency NC. Maybe get this thing reduced. Well WH- when they first You know 'cause I kept up with the political Moment what was going on the streets and when Obama when he became president when not before he it became president because it was some people that know hill and they people was talking tools and they was telling him what was going on with. They rela a Tuesday prison and stuff like this. So we already had idea There's GONNA be some changes this because the people that he was talking to were saying if you get an office he's chains right or do what he you can't for real for real. He could do more than that but you know you know he wanted to. I've I don't know I can't say but I know I know he could've did a blanket commutations instead of letting them. People deal deal with inmates because a lot of them didn't even help. There's a lot of people that still need to be out this. There's people in imprison still today for light with with life sentences for marijuana which is mind blowing. Yeah I know I know what I know when I was in an institution. Yeah yeah he got Ohio okay. It's it's it's my blowing and can you tell people that and it's how how could anybody I mean first of all nobody. Nobody should be in prison for life for for selling any drug. I I mean that's I mean just WanNa make that clear but I mean marijuana's a plant you throw a seed in the ground and grows and you're going to lock someone you know in a cage for life just for just for doing that but anyway Carl. I wanted to ask you so spending twenty five twenty. Sorry Twenty Twenty six years nine months in prison and you're out now what's been the most difficult part for you to reintegrate back into society with I mean what's been the toughest there were. The difficult thing is getting a place to stay on my own you know. Let's should be just like it was difficult for me. Give give them a driver's license. I had all documentations coming out the door with you know since the nine eleven stuff had this like man Dan. You know you know just just I system over here Judicial System over here is so messed up man and and this is it's crazy because it individuals there that affect they don't even come talk to them or or sister little comes they just okay you out get now and they shouldn't be like that man So you did you have any Do you you take any courses or anything like that. Yeah I did all that I got my. GED JINRO program. I get all I me. I did that for myself. I didn't do that because of the the law I was. I was doing that before that you know also I just you know how to get myself reeducated. Fives understanding the academic world too But years you know the justices and You know something I I would like all the ones that got life be able go to Washington and I would like to tell the politicians to get off day but man it starts serious stuff because they can do it man you can do it. Sit there and watch C. Span for like it. 'CAUSE IT prison blues stay on the news. Watch all the news house so I see the BS. They Games right now. They Games you got. People is sick imprisoned the guidelines. Are They not getting the medical attention into it. Just crazy man and if a person now because you know they took all the UNICORNS resigned proved so if the people there's prison now coming out if they got no family support I understand why they go back 'cause if you ain't got that support systems you do you gotTa have a Suppor- Sources you gotTa have learned. I'm just so big for the support team that I got because so it wasn't difficult from me. Only things difficult for me is tell the person have field and I might not come off right tools so they get an attitude added to know and another thing you know. I go see the when you leave. Prison lead he didn't guys. Don't understand that this. This is a day to day process. Just you know get I can make it back as aside. He just sitting there today I i. I'm well today was my first day using the debit. Be kind to us. I know how to use it. Isolated lady just looking at him and I'm sitting there. I don't know how to and I want to say just. Yeah because you have to me. Basically I mean debit card thing. You're sticking in the machine yourself you're punching the number and I mean I mean I would imagine technology it would be the biggest thing you know deal with the cell phone and all that stuff And things like that. I mean that's like like you were just talking about. There's no sort Lord of re-acclimatisation too that they don't teach you how to use a cellphone right. They don't they. Don't teach you how to use a debit card or how to how to you know. Do online banking or or anything like that. All the stuff they teaching them. Uh like Well I say oster like they kill you gotTa have all this identification stuff like man. You need more than that that stuff they tell us have it prison. They need more than that. So I don't know was I don't know what to know why they don't give up gate information. Yeah it's a it's a big problem and unfortunately it seems like there's there's not a lot of focus on on solving that part of the problem I mean there is. There is focused now on at least getting people out which is great. Who are in with these These long sentences for from non violent drug offenses. But there's not a lot of focus on actually getting people back on their feet with with the skills that they need there. There are actually people that have had my show that. Are you know doing things to help a guy who's out in California Michael Mancini Vice. He started a program program that he's working with the prisons to teach to teach welding to people who were present so when they come out able to to get a job well. I'm running this cold wind with goodwill what they helped. Exit vendors are get acclimated back back in the workforce. I did that completed that program. was she the money. Just say no I got. I worked two jobs. I worked to car cards. I guess that's the American Way Now have you had trouble. Have you had trouble with you. Mentioned finding trouble finding a place to stay. What about finding a job? What have I had? I had that I when I got out. I had that I when I got out. How did you approach coach that from an an interview standpoint? You know that's something up right away or do that afterwards. Because you know like I say when I coming out those are different you know a whole different ball game. He goes just dealing with people. You I'm so used to dealing with the ones like me coming out here dealing with you know their citizens gotta be gotta just think and yourself too young. Oh you 'cause man so disrespectful but what do you what do you mean could you give an example or expand on that. How like just say if you on the phone talk They talking to you and they expect to look it do is talk to bill but it's like Yeah there's probably been you know sense since the time period that you were locked up. I think there's been a big change range in just like the expectation around how people interact round phones because everyone everyone's always on a phone texting there are on the internet or facebook. Whatever people just they don't think anything of it? They'll just start talking to you when you're on your phone but yeah that's something. I didn't even think of breath. Yeah that's me getting the hang of like I say you know I'm getting the hang of every going to the stores and and all that stuff to a couple more questions for you so you know you've now now since since January right and not been out since July I've been. I was the halfway house seats. Okay yeah since July so not that long ago if you fast forward if you look ahead say five years from now ten years from now where do you see yourself. What do you see yourself doing in in five ten years? Almost almost stay on the message advocate. Okay so I see. Change low advocate. But still. I'm GonNa live my life to you. Know I go talk to. Can you tell them how long I've been in prison and all that stuff so you always do that then you know it just it just lot mess lot. There's a lot to give back to society so people just got to be. He patiently work or what each other. So how have you been able to you know. Stay on the path you're on and to to not get pulled back in to maybe be surrounded by people that can pull you back into different activities. How have you stayed on a on a in the past? He wanted to be on where I'm conditioned man? No when I said my mind is something. That's what it is. You know Kane ooh learning you know Tears the fact because you know was a permanent been. Put All your life. It AIN'T GONNA be dead easy for you to go back to some that. Know that it's a trap so there's a lot of that. Come back to you mentioned that you had a a a support system to help you get back into it. I mean it is a lot of a lot of that your support system. That's helped you. Well it's family member and right like people I went to school with no the world's signing the people who signed my petition. That's great just just one one and last question Carl. This was actually given to me Recommended to be asked and I started asking a couple episodes ago Maliki Maliki King Who you know gave me this question and it goes like this so you know I? I believe that each one of us has unique gift or unique ability ability Some people would say a superpower that separates us from everyone else. What would you say is your superpower? That helps helps you to To drive for success in life my heart in my mind no you you put your heart in this phone you got your mind settled. It got to be successful I like it. I like it because it's gotta be you know it's one thing to to understand the concept which you have to do in your head but to have your heart in its before invested in it and that's that's what it's all about man hundred percent agree with you know man like I say my own wish no prison on no bond Washington but man prisoner for him while continue like this. There's a lot of a lot of correctional officers and warden awards and administrators. They need to start working at the bottom and work their way up and then appreciate just being on the job career in having a job And they won't take they won't take a sears or abused a authority because you got a lot of manny. Manny abused their. You know their talk to you crazy and you have to catches so No that's that's called doing the camera check got always do a camera check when you check not only check for yourself but you gotta check for the other person too going off the hill like that team so we would you say doing a camera. Check your checking to make sure that you're not on camera and also if there's not a camera then now when I say when I can take I mean like a self evaluation on yourself okay and evaluate the situation. You gotTA know they're trying to instigate you right. They're trying to get an action out of you. Yeah but I don't I don't I don't I don't I don't feed into that because I'm much more older now. When I came in I was I was twenty? Four twenty five to fifty one now so you know a lot of stuff that they doing. Oh you know. I did that when I was in my younger days so it don't you know I it's not. It's not know instagram case. No they're not getting no is making show. I can trace O or helping somebody else like the other one hundred percent men.

Twitter and INSTAGRAM's uncovered service cast for January. The third twenty twenty. I'm Mike Clerk. Iraqi state television reported fighting a powerful commander of Iran's Revolutionary Revolutionary Guard Corps was killed in a strike on the Baghdad International Airport early Friday. CBS News Reporting America was involved in the death of Major General Qassim Sulejmani The New York Times reports. If confirmed the killing of the general would be a major blow for Iran and a major escalation for president trump's maximum pressure campaign against Iran which began with economic sanctions but has steadily moved into the military arena. Workers Advocates. Say That New York Governor Andrew. Cuomo have plenty of time to request changes to a bill to help victims of wage theft but chose to veto the measure. Instead are Andrew. Sears explains Senate bill s twenty four eighty eight B also known as securing wages against theft or sweat bill has been introduced in these state legislature. Sure several times in the past five years but didn't pass both houses until last June cuomo said he had problems with some of the legal provisions in the bill but Mark Donelly Ali who helped introduce it says lawmakers have been open to making changes. The Assembly Judiciary Committee did take steps to deal with some of the legal issues in the bill. What's changed and so for literally wait to the day? After new years eve to veto the bill is just outrageous and shameful in vetoing. The bill Cuomo's of the state is collected three hundred ten million in dollars in stolen wages since twenty eleven but its supporters. Say New York workers lose one billion dollars a year to wage theft. CUOMO says he'll introduce his own version of the sweat bill and this year's budget and some faith litters wop twenty twenty two year Oregon passes what they see as better gun control laws us more from Eric. The group lift every voice. Oregon made up a leaders from different faiths has submitted three petitions for measures to appear on the November twenty twenty twenty ballot the measure would restrict the sale of semiautomatic firearms through Titan background checks. Raise the minimum purchase age from eighteen to twenty one and ban the sale of high capacity ammunition magazines one of the chief petitioners. Rabbi Michael Gehenna says faith leaders addressing gun violence as a moral imperative in our faith traditions. We are told that we can't stand idly by while our neighbor bleeds. Means we have to take responsibility when there is a crisis as there is in gun violence in our country faith leaders including Hana tried to get a similar measure restricting semi my automatic weapons sales on the ballot in twenty eighteen in the wake of the shooting at Parkland Florida High School. However that effort into legal issues the partitions or just a few of the potential measures addressing firearms twenty twenty others pending review would establish a gun storage law? This is pianists. A A state and national campaign led by AARP Iranian. The rising cost of prescription drugs is making headway and Wyoming. Lawmakers say. They're getting the message especially especially from folks who live on fixed incomes Sam Chamois with Aarp Wyoming says. The median income for Medicare beneficiaries is just twenty six thousand dollars a year and that doesn't go a long way for folks on average. Fill four and five prescriptions. A month. It's a very real pocketbook issue when you are having to make these decisions about sweater to groceries or pay for your medication. That's a big problem. And that's I think the frustration that these legislators are hearing Xiaowei points to legislation recently passed in Florida data that would allow lower cost medicine to be imported from Canada as one option Wyoming lawmakers could consider in the upcoming session. Big Pharma has argued that high profit margins. That's helpful to write their research and development costs which have produced significant advances in medicine nationally. The US spins nearly twice as much on healthcare as other comparable countries and high drug. Prices are a significant driver of rising costs. Chamois says the Stop Rx. Greed campaign isn't about discouraging continued research and development but it's important important to find middle ground. That place where people don't feel like they're being taken advantage of some of the drug company executives are making millions and millions of dollars and they're trying to figure out how to pay for their prescriptions at the federal level of bill to allow Medicare to use it significant purchasing power to negotiate with drug makers for lower prices says. Hi cleared the House but has not yet been taken up by. The Senate finally are Natty L.. Ramlogan reports and environmental groups of public health. Experts are questioning the EPA not a frequent use of emergency approvals that allow farmers to use toxic pesticides the EP reports last year. It issued emergency approvals for use of a pesticide that is known to kill bees on more than sixteen million acres senior scientist at the center for Biological Diversity Nathan. Donnelly's says in Tennessee Agency recently greenlighted use of too synthetic pesticides on sorghum and cotton fields. And it's likely more approvals will be issued hued this growing season there is an exemption approval process carved out for true emergencies. EPA has been abusing this emergency approval process says and we believe approving uses that aren't really actual emergencies. He says more than one billion pounds of pesticides are used each year. In the United States Donnelly acknowledges there are situations that warrant the emergency approval of certain pesticides such as an influx of hard to kill pests and diseases that can wipe out crops and financially strained farmers however he points out. That repeatedly designating emergencies isn't how the system is designed to work by Clifford effort. Thanks for wrapping up your week with Public Service. We are member endlessly supportive.

I don't know about you guys but you know and every now and then you know you raise a glass of wine and everything is cool and then sometimes you throw a bottle of wine get Outta my house is it never come back so you know it's like that bottle comes in handy and sometimes maybe you'd rather throw a can because it doesn't break and speaking of that you know about a year year and a half ago or so I interviewed a guy named Ryan harms and he is the founder and owner of union wine company and they make wine incans which I thought at the time was a great idea because half of my company at least half every weekend was out hiking the mountains and going to the waterfalls and they also like to drink wine but when you take a bottle of wine with first of all you know you gotta be careful every step you take at that point we can with not such a big deal everybody take can put it in your backpack. Let's roll so it's kind of fun to check back in year and a half. I don't know it's been maybe yeah about a year and a half ago but along the way they have had. It's the union wine company. They have had tremendous growth and they. Let's let's just see here year over year.

He's in there and so I passed him around to the office to the wind. Drink and folks in the office and not. Anybody didn't go out delicious so I want to talk about this kind of meteoric growth and how you're dealing with it. Are you going to the men's hair club yet because the ball spot continues to increase with the pressure. That is on Ryan's shoulders right. Or maybe you're like me and you just said your gall bladder because all this growth creates a whole lot of kind of the next version Asia of you has it did it or are you already there. It's a good question so I can say I'm voiding the men's hair club so far Arkansas' say that from my brother who works with me in the business but in all seriousness. It's it definitely has been you know coming from being a winemaker. You're to more of a presidency. Oh and trying to run a growing enterprise like this. It's presented a lot of challenges and it certainly has evolved the role I have in the organization what I do. And kind of probably some of the fulfillment that that you have but those it's been fun challenges that I've embraced and continue to get up and enjoy what I'm doing day in and day out and I think that for me. That's that's all that matters in as long as I continue to have fun than this is what I want to continue to be doing with my life. I like it when we come back. I'm GonNa Grill you more because They're in a brand new WHO forty-three Thousand Square foot packing facility. And they're able to Can Six hundred and fifty cans per minute. Gosh well that's what you need if you're going to grow as fast as they're growing union wine company DOT COM on the web. If you want to check it out we'll talk a little bit about The wine raise a glass to your family members. Try Not to fight people during the holiday season. It Ain't worth it drinking the wine a whole lot better. This is entrepreneur. Weekly learn together here. Tell the more entrepreneur weekly after these messages. Yeah I love this song dire straits money for nothing and you chicks chicks for Free Listening to entrepreneur weekly. I'm an Entrepreneur Entrepreneur magazine on newsstands everywhere. It's funny we all start out our businesses businesses as entrepreneurs because we love whatever it is. We're doing passionate about it. I think Ryan harms is one of those guys founder and owner of union wine company started out as a winemaker now under the brands they have five different brands under the union. Wine Label. Underwood King's Kingsbridge Amadou Vinegars Christopher Michael Wines and alchemists and now he went from being a winemaker to a CEO. The Z. O.. It's lonely at the top. They say because you aren't able to do so much what you love before. Now you're having to crunch numbers and hire and fire and and when you go out and make a deal on a forty three thousand square foot packing facility and put together a a bottling and canning assembly line that can I do two hundred fifty bottles per minute. Six hundred to six hundred and fifty cans per minute and make sure that nobody gets killed in the process. It's like the hard job the CEO Joe has to do can you talk about that. Conversion from winemaker to CEO and that journey right yeah. Yeah and it's you know it's one of those things that doesn't happen overnight but at some point you Kinda wakeup in and recognize. I hardly do any of this over here. which is what what got me into the business? And now spending the lion share of my time navigating neither of these challenges or as you just said dealing with crunching numbers. I'm trying to just make sure we're keeping the lights on and and not making a decision that potentially we'd regret and for a guy who has an environmental studies undergraduate right degree in no formal business training. I think that's been the area that is been the most challenging for me is both recognizing that I need to step up and continue to step up in a way. That probably keeps me in a position where I feel a little unbalanced because I'm doing some things that I not necessarily experienced or comfortable in and trying to lean into that a little bit and find comfort in doing that and then at at the same time I think maybe being a little bit in that luxuriance position of as you're hiring more people to allow the organization to grow and run. You're kind of in that transition where you're starting to recognize like I need a little more process you know. We can't just kind of running gun anymore the way we used to. And so you're starting ended up bring process and maybe recognized and you need some different skill sets and the people that you have on board that also that's allowing me to step back a little bit and say like Hey. I don't love this this particular area that I've gotten involved in and I want to try to find your some of the things that are I'm passionate about or excite me and I think for me right now I'm midnight zone of kind of there's definitely responsibilities I have and I accept those and they may not love all of them and then also trying to find some of those parts of why I'm in this business to begin with and that's that's where I want to stop you there. So question is when do you have that weigh on you when you go to bed when you wake up when you take a lunch break when do you have that. OC- is knit moment. Where you realize that you've turned into the CEO man instead of this? This passionate wine loving winemaker when you say cases is a case of six pack. How many cans in in a case? I'd cases twenty four nine leaders. It's the same volume as like a case of wine. So twelve bottles of wine is twenty four cans. There's the one volume twelve million cans of wine. which you know? It's like it's daunting so. When is that that I mean it's like I go to bed at night sometimes so exhausted I'm out and then I wake up at three o'clock in the morning going? Oh my gosh what happened. Where am I who who am I? whose body in my in? What happened to the life that I wanted even though this life is good? It isn't the one that I wanted. But I'm I can redirect right. So where is that for you. Give me thirty seconds. We'll take another break. I think that comes at different times like sometimes it is that the two am three am year awake. Wake grinding on something that you've been working on and then sometimes I think sitting down and like signing cheques. You're kind of looking at the dollar value value the number of people involved and it like kind of comes home to sit on my shoulder about all these people that I'm responsible for making sure that stores the business effectively because it's their lives or so much responsibility it's a dare. I say all work and no play makes Tom Adult boy as they say. But doesn't have to be that way we're the sum total of all of our choices. So let's make Goodwin's we'll take another break. Come back from commercial and find out what Ryan got to say. Maybe you can give us some great advice. Talks Manure Weaker more entrepreneur weekly after these messages. You're you're listening to entrepreneur weekly. Now here's your host Alan Taylor Well Entrepreneur magazine on newsstands everywhere. We're here to try in help you to understand your journey a little better exposing those on their journey that are maybe a little further down the road than you like Ryan harms founder and owner of union wine company out of two wallets in Oregon. Right up the road from me. They've they've sold. Oh like twelve million cans and bottles of wine. Talk to him a couple of years ago he was Kinda getting going with this company and things were going well but my God. This is a meteoric rise of a company and the man along the way has to evolve the man in charge Ryan harms joining us right now and I. I said to him during the Commercial Marshall Break. I said you know what I want you to dig deep here because at the end of the day people love to follow man with good heart and I I don't usually interview people people twice Ryan but when I talked to the first time I liked what I heard so when they asked me they said. Hey you know gosh this companies really growing well and there's some really cool stories here and there's a lot out of this you know been voted number one here number one there and I always like all right. Well that's all cool. There's a lot of companies that are kicking ass right now but what I want to know is the evolution Shen of this man. And what can this man share with. All these people men and women listening who are trying to improve their lives when when things may be going good because we always have stories about when things go bad but when things are going good idea just kinda rake in the money and I'm getting rich by the minute or do you really go soul-searching I hear a searching soul definitely searching you. No I think the question that you pose and kind of go a couple of ways I think for me. I dedicated a huge amount of my late twenties and a big chunk. Mike Thirties to working trying to support my family support. The families that worked for me and I realized in doing that that I didn't spend a lot of time with my kids. My marriage kind of fell apart. And I think that's probably a pretty common story for a lot of entrepreneurs and maybe it's the beauty of hindsight but I'm looking back and I know there would be some things above to do over not going to get those opportunities with your children children again and while the business was there and it was exciting and you almost intoxicating to be a part of the growth and everything we had going on. I also was missing things at home and I think now I've kind of come to a point in my career where I realized that I gave up some things that you know quite honestly if I had to do over. I'd like to do it a little differently. I don't know that it actually would change anything in terms of where you company would be today but in those moments you you feel like hey if I spend an extra two hours in this job done or doing this work that I have at the office. That'll continue to give me a head in terms of what I'm doing with work while you're giving up that time with your family and and I think in hindsight a couple of hours every day throughout the week knowing not only do they add up but I just. I'm not sure that they're actually getting your head. We certainly have in our culture right now to this kind of hustle and grind kind of mentality. You and I think there's something that I can connect to in that but I also maybe question a little bit some of the symbolism of you know I I worked Gedi hours last week and it's like a badge of honor and I think people are doing that are probably given up a lot of things to that unfortunately well hopefully they won't come to to the future. You know what I gotTa Tell You I am you and I am just older. I'm GONNA be sixty. I did the exact same thing. All entrepreneurs make the same aim mistake and it typically will cost us a marriage. It didn't for me. I've been thirty eight years of my wife at this point which is amazing. I have four kids and a couple of grandkids. And but I gotta say I will work with you on this one because I think that this is the the number one mistake that we all as entrepreneurs and not even just entrepreneurs openers like you said the badge of honor you know. I worked eighty hours or one hundred hours. It's a badge of stupidity. Unfortunately because what did we give up so but I'm here to tell you that it's never too late never too late to go to your kids and grab them and tell them you love them and just make that change today because the fact is that my kids are now fully grown but guess what now when they see in in my. Is this different. The man this man that looks at them with presence instead of What Oh let me get to that later? I'm busy right now. which which they heard from me most of their life and probably with your kids too? But it's never too late because guess what they see. Finally it's like like remember in Hook when when the little kid grabs Peter Pans face and he pulls back his face a little bit as scanning goes. Oh there you are Peter you know because he was a full grown man and he was a little kid when he was Peter Pan. And that's the way it is with your kids when they finally see that your home and your back to do your job is be their dad or their mom. If you're a woman listening to this but it's never too late and success is not really all what it's cracked up to be if you you know there's a saying what prophet a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul in the process and so I think out of this of course it's the holiday season. We all need that wakeup call. And I'm glad to see that I was right about Ryan harms. Love this journey. You're on Ryan. Congratulations on all the growth for union. The union wine company. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa Continue in my little sipping supporting you. I don't drink much wine but I always think of you when I pick up. You know a little bit of wine and I'm seeing you all all over the place. So congratulations. Yeah Thank Union wine company DOT COM to learn this lesson. Sooner than later later people it is never too late out of my down. Count can't get enough of entrepreneur. Weekly check out our podcast on itunes for even more content subscribe today through dim You're listening to entrepreneur weekly. Now here's your host Alan Taylor well. Happy Holidays Don't be too happy course. We discussed on talking about wine now. Let's talk about getting high. Oh what a subject to talk about. Not An entrepreneur right. Our next guest up can shine a light on this whole thing with the you know the whole. CBD CBD oil and cannabis. And all that. And actually I have a family member that works in this field but Ryan Lewis. He is the CEO and founder of global. And ready for this cannabinoid. That's a big word. I didn't even know what a cannabinoid is Ryan out and and a and cannabinoid or like one of the most exciting phase in my life can avenue. It's our T. eighteen that everybody knows that's one type of canal. Annoyed Loyd. CBD is another type of tabloid actually stands for kidnapping dial. But there's a hundred other Tanakh noise and the president in the cannabis plant and cannabis is marijuana and marijuana is any cannabis that has higher than point three percent. THC and Hamp is any cannabis that has has less than point three percents so Mary Jane and hemp. Both I did not know that so you learn something new every day so let's talk first of all global and say this word again cabinets. What do you guys got it yet? What do you do so global north is one of the largest? I just producer manufacturers and distributors of hemp derived kidnap annoyed. It's you know that aspect is very important because our capital it's it's from hemp and marijuana the government obviously regulates it differently. We can send it across state lines and it can be used and you know a lot of the products that you're finding across across the country especially in nationally branded products. Is there still a stigma on this like you know. I guess when it first started you were you. Were kind kind of one of the first people to see the CBD as the next big thing but there was a stigma of Oh. They're like dopers man so I mean today. It's so much more accepted. It's like I'm seeing you know from older people using them for is the right word medicinal use. I don't know to younger or people still are into this because they've always felt like marijuana and hemp are both cool so I don't know where is it. Where does it stand in your is? The stigma is really related to you. Know the government's view on cannabis and marijuana specifically it's been prohibited. It's considered a schedule one drug even now. This plant is considered Scott. One which means have no additional benefit no medicinal value. That's the definition. That's initiative schedule one. But we know that to be completely untrue and the reason is because of the research that's been conducted it was really spearheaded by some of the leading Israeli researchers in the world rafael my souilem but discover. The and see but he was one of them is a friend of mine and you know his research has shown that there's huge medical medical benefits of cabinets. And so you know. The stigma is definitely starting to change innovation been brainwashed into thinking marijuana's bad now people are having you know personal experiences with this plant and they have family members or friends. Everybody has a family member a friend. Who's been you know had some positive benefit from this plan? I mean it's the most medicinal plant on earth and it hasn't been studied like it should have been but you know speaking from an entrepreneurial standpoint that's where this opportunity lies because it hasn't been studied and the government has outlawed it for so long. Uh You know now that the industry is starting to rise up pharmaceuticals are five years away so we have a great opportunity now to bring these cannabinoid to the market arquette and break this stigma by showing people. It's not just about getting high. Not There's a hundred other cannabinoid within the plant and they each have different effects that it can be anything and help people from things like sleep to their appetite to stress and anxiety campaign so lots of exciting things coming out and we're trying to break the sigma everyday by educating people. Well I think this is a good reason to talk about it on the show today. I actually have a friend who had a friend that had a cancer on on his skin. I think it was son cancer of some sort. And he said you know what let's do a test and so they actually photographed like daily and they would put put this CD oil on it and and it was like my friend went from being a guy who is like. There's no way in hell I would ever use that crap too who I was wrong. That stuff worked like a miracle. So it's funny. How if you know somebody and you've seen something work and there's a lot of cases to still you see on facebook? You know stories about you know smoking pot how bad it is for you. But I don't like smoking. Anything can't be good ingesting smoke into lungs because you're starting to see more and more coming out about the those inhaler things that they're doing so I don't know I mean I guess there is a difference between how you use this stuff and whether it has. THC Or is it just CBD and again. I don't even know the difference but there was a huge. I guess I don't know just I'm a bunch of people that got into this business. Can I say it that way and then a bunch of people that have gotten out of it now because things happen you know they. They started trying to grow the stuff. They didn't know what they're doing. Evidently there's different ways of growing marijuana and it's like if you don't do it just right it doesn't have the yield and so it's a business like anything else else. You can't just jump in and say I'm GonNa do this. I'M GONNA make millions right. Yeah and I you know that's a good segue into you know Just a quick story. About how oh I got into the industry please go. I was investment banker on Wall Street thirteen years in New York City. One of my best friends. We can't assures and he decided he was gonNA leave his firm and start artem marijuana investment fund so he asked me to come on board and help raise capital to invest in marijuana companies. We ended up raising one hundred million dollars while I was at the fund you know. Hundreds of companies are sending US their business plans every week and my job was to basically pick them apart and identify what was good about him. What was bad about him and I started seeing a trend trend immediately and the trend was all these marijuana? Companies are talking about building a brand but in order to build a brand in the marijuana industry. You can't cross state lines so you have to license your brand to somebody in another state and then you have to have a different manufacturer. That's making it and I'm looking at these business plans going. How do you we build a brand? If you have no control over the brand you know brands are all about you. Know creating a consistent product that gives customers and experience an exact exact experience over and over and over again so I asked myself this question. How do you build a brand in the cannabis industry and that's when my attention turned towards him enhance derived cannabinoid? Because I knew that the hemp plant produced a lot of different canals and deriving out the noise from him would allow a brand Iran to be nationally distributed so you could control the manufacturing of it the quality and the consistency and then distributed nationally. And so that's that's how I got onto the opportunity of happen. CBD and that was before the US farm bill of two thousand fourteen so oh shortly thereafter. That's when the farm bill passed and Hanff was once again legalized in the United States. So I wanted to build a brand that company to basically distribute our product. But there was no supply chain wholesale right there. Let's talk about that because that's the thing it's just like with these electric electric cars that they're building electric cars faster than they're building the infrastructure to power them into to recharge them so the supply supply chain is very important the infrastructure very important talking to Ryan Lewis. CEO and founder of global and Avenue. We'll take a break it. It is entrepreneur weekly You're listening to entrepreneur weekly. Now here's your host Alan Taylor talking with Ryan Lewis Today. CEO and founder of global AIDS. And he's been in it for a long time global cannabinoid hs dot. Why did you go with dot? I am Ryan everything I do. I try to be different. And and a lot of the newest tech companies in the world are using this extension dot. I Yo which actually stands for Indian Ocean. It doesn't affect anything on the search results. It's just a way to be different and I felt that it was more of an international domain. Were very very international company. There you go so when we left we were talking about supply chain when you got started and it was like you know like the wild wild west I guess I could say still is in many ways. Yeah it really was. I mean the only canaveral. It's that where we go from. Ham had to be imported and so the countries that it came from from Europe and China they produced hemp plants. That were actually grown for seed in fiber so the plants themselves produce a very small amount of cannabinoid naturally naturally and then they pass the Farmingdale in two thousand fourteen which define tamp as any cannabis sativa l that produces naturally less than point three three percent Delta Ninety eight on the driveway basis. When I read that I that word any kept sticking out? And they said holy cow I can get a strain of blue dreamer dreamers sour diesel to produce less than point three percent. JC I can grow thousands of acres of it has happened. And that's what really got me started on this quest for the genetics. Genetics that I thought would really define our industry which were TANABE annoyed. Rich plant which never grown before in the world well and in growing anything you can't just throw seed in the ground you gotTa know. What the hell you're doing so you had to learn that too right? Yeah and the way that we did that was by cloning and and the sea came several years later. You know this last year and this year the seeds now are Feminazi because when drop the seed in the ground you don't know what's GonNa come up there. It took basically you know growing these plants over and over and over again and feminizing we see and so only the females would be produced when you drop the seed in the ground to really create a market for seats so the female plants produce the flowers and the flowers produced cabinet until it's very critical that female it. Here's a guy from Wall Street talking about female plants and flowers avenue. I just love it. It's like what the limit Miguel your friends probably thought you were insane. Well you know one thing about us on Wall Street. All the companies of the world come to us for financing you know in funding and so you really have to know what you're putting your money into so we've become experts in whatever it is that were out to invest in so same thing for cannabis. I I T. Dove into this. I literally studied with researchers in Israel different universities and I basically got a PhD and Canaveral. It so we're talking about this industry. What Primary Industries you know besides obviously the actual cbd or cab annoyed industry? Sorry what other industries benefit from CD infused products. So you know again it's not just about TVD the most funding cannot the sound enhance. It was probably the most widely researched but think of ingredients. You know just like A lot of the supplements that you find with different the tentacles Um and different compounds. Within those plants you know take resveratrol. For example from grape seeds these plants produce compounds that have great medical benefits and so these are just ingredients. That companies are very very very interested in that produce great effects. Obviously there's research coming out about you know. CBD for pain for stress and anxiety so companies that have products that are targeting. Those conditions want to add these Kanada noise into those products. Right when we come back I. I WanNa know some of the potholes in the road because there's entrepreneurs we're bold and I know fortune favors the bold but in this case you had to be extra bold because there were so many things going against you and anybody else in this industry but you're leading the way it is at this point in the game it's global cannabinoid dot. Io if you want to know more Ryan Lewis GonNa put the professors cap on aww teach. Now you gotta teach a little bit. That's part of the game or take a little break. You must've been to entrepreneur.

People still have a question mark in their mind when it comes to anything that has to do with cannabis so many yet there are so many that are also show jumping in going. I have seen at work. It has worked for me. CBD and these products they're making Ryan Lewis Global CANNABINOID 's companies leading the way in the Industry Ryan. We we're going to ask you to give us a full frontal view of the mistakes you've made to be able to achieve success you have. Is that fair enough to say sure. Then go for it. I've always tried to avoid mistakes. And you know seeing what a lot of companies companies fail even if you have a great product or or a great idea. They fail in the sales and marketing category. When helpless I legalized in the United States? It was about seven months later before they could actually grow it so the first thing I decided to do was go to Google and see who selling it. Who was there and there was nobody buddy selling American grown hemp because it hadn't been grown so I decided I was going to build the first Balkan wholesale PD website or what I call distribution platform a form for American grown? CD and I started advertising all the products that I thought it would go into. I started advertising that I had it in bulk and wholesale sale and I did that in order to identify who the buyers would be assessed with the market demand would be and then build relationships with those buyers. Yes which I did over the course of seven months during that time I tree sold tens of millions of dollars worth of hand and then I decided. Okay now I need to find the hemp so I went to Colorado the first state to adopt the federal legislation found one of the biggest hemp farms. And I basically it came to them and I said I can sell everything is producing. They looked at me like I was crazy but they agreed we did a deal and it was contingent upon the actually being able to do what I said but I had already identified all the buyers and built relationships with them over the course of the year and so the first thing I would say is you know no matter what you're producing or what industry are going into build relationships with the buyers identified who your customers are and that figure out ways to create marketing so that they understand how to sell your producing so really. It's about I I heard do you damn. Am Homework and you did. I mean you went to Brown University. I see which is great. You've worked on Wall Street so you knew how to do your homework. And then a lot of people think they can take facts action figures out and shove them in people's faces but it sounds to me like you did the other opportunity which is to go out and create relationships and allow those facts and figures in the information and knowledge that you have to create that relationship that is actually a much stronger bond to begin with than it was if you just sold a bunch of numbers like you said it all was dependent on you being able to deliver so everybody wants to know. What is the the character of this man? I'm dealing with. And how much information and knowledge does he have and then what kind of guy is he. They're looking over from top to bottom. So you sound like you had your Game Amo congratulations. Yeah thank you. I mean you know just again. My whole approach to doing business and and sales in general is the relationship really nothing means more to me than the relationship. If you know things are going to happen with the delivery of the product there's delays. You know machines could break i. I mean I'll never forget our first year. I sold everything we had. And then we need to find more and so I had to hold the hands of these customers and really you know. Let them know. Look we are going to make this delivery. It's a little bit delayed but we'll get there but you know communication it's critical you. You have to answer the phone when they're calling. You have to update them. You have to you know. These people are relying on you for information because they have they have customers Mersin Strauss and if you don't give them the information they need and you know you have breakdown and great advice communicate no matter how much it hurts. It's important portent sometimes. Honesty is like you said I'm having an issue. Don't worry about it I'm gonNA keep you posted every inch of the way and as long as you do that. The people are willing to work with you no matter what they'll go to hell and back with you Ryan Lewis Global Cannabinoid hs dot I o.. Congratulations relations rather.

It's our first show twenty twenty and after last week's look back. We thought this would be a good time to look ahead mainly at the issues. You'll hear more about the year in Illinois there will be pushed to change the state constitution and howled income is taxed also every two years we have a new census and we'll find out what's at stake for Illinois gets communities and its residents but I it's also an election year not just for the presidency but there will also be plenty of statehouse races and when we look at statehouse control across the country red or blue not much in between that describes them only one St Minnesota Has House Republicans and Democrats splitting legislative. Control the political divide in the country has given way to more one party dominance in right here in Illinois Democrats have had full reign over the General Assembly since two thousand three but many experts believe the trend that's happening across. The country has resulted in lawmakers who are in power feeling less the need to compromise Alan Green Black wrote about this phenomenon in a recent article for Governing Magazine when you look at Illinois it's similar to what you're seeing in other other states across the country in that Democrats are dominating in urban areas Republicans in rural areas. Yeah that is very much. The case everywhere. Democrats are are are running up big numbers in the big cities and some of the Closer in more populous suburbs also college towns and they're almost completely shut out of the rural areas and small towns so Most states are under one party control now certainly at the legislative level. There's only only one St Minnesota that has divided legislature in the whole country. which is very unusual? I think it dates back to world war. One last thing that happened And I think it gets thirty. Seven states have the same party controlling the governor and the legislature and basically comes down to whether you have a huge city like Chicago that can outvote. The rest has to the state or next door and in the in in Indiana the Democrats also dominate Indianapolis. But it's just not enough to outvote the rest of that state. The Republicans control everything there because of that dominance in the in the urban areas for Democrats and more of the rural areas for Republicans. There's there's not much middle ground left. Is there well. That's right and that was one of the striking things about this. Last election was that there was very little change really Democrats picked up a few chambers. I but it was less than normal in terms of how many chambers or seats around the country the President's party normally would lewd. You lose you know. An average prison party always loses seats in legislatures And it was less normal this time and there are a lot of states where no fee change hands or one or due to There really wasn't much change. The only thing that changed in most places was that Democrats made gains in upscale suburbs. They have been training their way. And now with President trump some voters who have been voting Republican are switching to the democratic side but in general There is this big split. People are divided by geography as we said Bourbon versus rural but also by education levels by race by by Whether they attend church regularly all kinds of things and so people are really not considering voting for the other party so a lot of areas are are locked walked in place and it's up and down the ballot you know the. US Senate has the record low number of senators who are from states that their party didn't win in the last. That's presidential race. Their record low number of I think it's only eleven states. Have divided Senate delegations which is the the least ever So Oh so. We're seeing that people only vote Democratic or will only vote Republican and then like I said just the mix of how many of those people are in which place determines who's in control of her own when I look at a state like Illinois though I have seen some exceptions to that in the sense that of course we just had a Republican governor. He was voted out of office. In what many people view as a very blue democratic state we had a Republican Senator Mark Kirk just a few years ago so we can see some anomalies in this correct stories or is there a reason why those folks are able to break through. You can always find anomalies in really among governors. That's still the case. There's the Democratic governor her now in Kansas and one in Louisiana Republican governors of Maryland Massachusetts which are otherwise highly democratic states But you know what I've talked to people we bought this. They always say well. I can think of an exception and I can too but a lot of them go back some years. His longtime since Turk was elected senator and he lost. Its rounder under one in a strongly Republican year against the unpopular Democratic incumbent. Pat Quinn But then he you know he lost handily. This time The you know ten years ago there were more anomalies as it were there. Were Republicans had a chance to win legislatures in states like Oregon But it's been twenty years since Republicans have one the House in Illinois or the Assembly in California. I mean the the the the the amount of time parties are in power is is longer there fewer states that are That are in play in the average majorities within legislatures have have have grown larger in this decade. So yeah there's still a few novels and and And it does seem like people look at the job of governor a little bit differently. Sometimes people do like to have a governor who is from the other party who can acta the check on the legislature a number of the governors who were elected this flyswatter twenty new governors elected nationwide which is quite a bit of turnover A lot of them were more moderates. they were the new democratic governors. There's in Wisconsin and Michigan for example beat more progressive challenges in their primaries and in some of the more conservative people running on the Republican side. Lost CRISCO Bach and in Kansas and bill shooting in Michigan these were very ideological conservative. they lost in the very progressive. Candidates is lost for governor Ben Jellison Maryland David Garcia in Arizona. Stacey Abramson in Georgia and Indra Gilman Florida. So it seems like for Governor Pete. That's that's a that's a job with a high enough profile that people are willing to vote for the man and not necessarily the party but when it comes to legislatures most people don't know who they're legislator is yeah. I've had this argument for years with legislators they say people in my district Nomi they stopping the grocery store. That's true some extent But in general people vote very generically for the Party and so those offices that become much more nationalized and like I say a lot of people will not consider voting for Republican right now or or vice versa depending on their wings they just. They're not winning tickets like they used to talking with a reporter. Ellen Greene Blab. He has written for Governing magazine article titled All or nothing and it takes. That's a look at the rise up. One party dominance across the country in state government Allah one of the most interesting things I thought in this article and was was sort of new to me was that people actually choose their positions on issues issues like immigration or climate change to be in lockstep with their party positions meaning that parties are about about identity not policy. That was going to one expert that you talked to talk a little bit more about that. Yeah you're on one team or the other If you look at polls the number a number of Republicans who are skeptical about trade for example is much higher than it was two years ago before Donald Trump became president. He's obviously been critical of a lot of trade packages and he is convinced people in his party to To to change their points of view and we see this on a number of issues. There's there's there've been a lot of studies on this for instance on climate change. If you ask people does Human activity contribute to climate change. You'll see a big partisan gap between Republicans Republicans and Democrats. But if you ask. According to climate scientists does human activity contributes climate change. There's no partisan gap whatsoever so in one case you're asking people knowledge question. Do you know that climate scientists claim that humans are causing climate change. There's no partisan gap. Yeah but if you say Humans are causing people know. Their party is not If if the Republican Party does not believe that and the gap is actually whitest whitest among the most educated people so people who know the most don't necessarily they they come up with ways of rationalizing their sense of where their party is or or why they're getting in line with what we're the party so we see this on issue after issue. Of course there are some issues where people have very strong opinions and may not change but in general. If you look at the averages people do shift to be in line with where the party Allen at the same time I keep hearing about all of these people who say I don't really belong to a party I'm a I'm an independent and I think for myself and I have different views on things and yet we're seeing this one party dominance in on where you're at in the country it almost seems as though Oh that doesn't jibe with what they're saying right. I mean there's the number of people who identify as independence is pretty high and in states where people register by party. Me Independence are growing fast and people do not want to identify with party but in a way this is part of what we're seeing. I mean one reason that people we'll always vote one way or another. It's not that they love their own party so much that they hate the other party they think those people are crazy In that that cuts certainly both both ways so there are a lot of people who are saying you know to heck with both of them. I'm an independent. Political has shown again and again people who say they're independent vote essentially just in just as partisan as people willing to identify the party so Naggus a lot of people saying. I'm not happy with either party. I don't want to belong to you the party but I certainly not going to vote for that party. I'm not gonNa vote for those crazy. Republicans were this crazy Democrat so so it it does seem like on. Its face of puzzling. Why we have more independence at the same time we have A partisan polarization. But it's all all part of the same thing. People are happy. They may not want to say they belong to one party. The they're certainly not going to vote for the other party. So what role does redistricting play in this. Because of course we see in States Illinois is one of these states where it's almost Brits. Virtually all or nothing as well when it comes to defining the legislative boundaries of different districts can can that actually flip a state around the state maybe like in Illinois of for Republicans were able to draw the legislative map Yeah the maps can make a big difference. I mean some of this. This is a point kind of a debate for sure that that like say we have this kind of natural sorting where people are voting or are voting in line with their at their area. More more people are living in single-party district's or single-party county's county of course not redistricting but the number of people who live in in counties that are overwhelmingly Democratic or overwhelmingly Republican has gone up enormously over the last forty years A majority Jordy people live in the county that is strongly democratic or Republican now So again it's the big urban counties primarily that are voting democratic and the rest of their voting Republican and anyway so so even if you had a perfectly fair system and a lot of states voters in I think. Three states last year voted to create independent redistricting commissions taken out of the hands of the partisan legislators with the idea that can make more fair. But there's there in reality. There's only so many ways you can slice up these big cities into different districts so so basically redistricting exacerbates these tendencies. That they're all ready for areas. Vote one way or another and it's really. They can't have a big effect Up in Wisconsin Democrats won more votes statewide for For for for the state assembly there but Republicans came away with A. I think it was sixty three to thirty six advantage. Manage something like that if you had a a map that wasn't so heavily redistricting tilted toward the GOP. It might be different but the reality is huge percentage of the Democrats. Let's live either in Madison and Milwaukee. So that's going to limit the number of districts that they can they can win anyway. This divide a seems to lead Seles compromising and government released on its face. It seems that way maybe the harsher tone that we're hearing in politics these days is that all tied into this one in party dominance. Yeah for certainly. We're seeing in Washington. We have divided government there and you know for years. There's been gridlock in Washington is is quite different at the state level though because Rather than the two parties being basically evenly matched as they are nationwide within individual states. One Party tends to dominate their number states where Democrats control everything and conversely they're more states where Republicans control everything and so. They don't need the other party cooperation at the state level. You don't have the Philip Filibuster like you do in the US Senate so this polarization certainly happens. There's there's antagonism between the parties within legislatures quite often but But one party tends to You know ruled the roost. And so so you don't have gridlock in the states the way you do At the federal level so I have to ask before we wrap up are the days. He's of the moderates politician the one that might cater to some You know maybe a Democrat who caters to some Republicans and vice versa. Or the days of the moderate politician over. It looks that way pretty much I mean. Certainly there are some but Even the past couple of weeks. We've seen legislators in New Jersey and California Ornia who were elected as Republicans switched to the Democratic Party. That the they're they're in the type of affluent suburbs that have become more a democratic and whether they think their party is left them as they say or whether they just think they have better chance being reluctant Democrats they switched in. You know twenty years ago we saw all all over the south where region that had been democratic became very Republican. So typically you know the incentives now are to be strongly strongly with one party in and against the other party. And and there's there's no reward for being a moderate compromising because you know you've see you're seeing as a traitor. So of course there are a few. But that's who lost when you look at where the Democrats were able to win. The district won them the house last year. It was the moderate who got wiped out. People did not want Compromisers in general. You know the Republican Republican Party has become a very conservative it certainly in the past decade. They're very few moderates left in on the Democratic side. There they see me going as far left certainly in the presidential field as they can and so. They're very few moderates left hand. Even though a lot of people will say that they are centrists themselves themselves or wish. Politicians would just get along most party. Most districts are one way or the other so whoever wins the primary. WHO's more likely to be? You know very progressive or very conserve through. That's Ellen Greene Blat Allen.

We'll be talking about the census and what's at stake for Illinois Illinois voters in the fall will decide that the state should change its income tax tax structure from a flat tax to graduated tax. That would mean higher. Income earners would pay more Brian. mackey joins me a preview. Something you're going to hear a lot about over the next steer Brian a lot is at stake here especially for Governor Jeb Pritzker when it comes to this vote. Yeah the main thing that's at stake for the governor is managing to balance. Helens the state's budget. He is counting on this in fact his office of Management and budget came out with a report sort of predicting dire consequences. This is for eleanor. If it doesn't get the extra roughly three and a half billion dollars that's expected to eventually be generated by this change in the tax structure and and he's really counting on that money in order to be able to Continued state government without having to either raise the flat tax or are having to make significant cuts. I think we learned during the budget. Impasse that Ella. My government is really difficult to cut. I mean people like to talk a good game about waste and fraud and that sort of thing but when the rubber meets the road so much of the state spending is automatic either for debt repayment or pension payments or To comply with court court orders for care of people with disabilities prisoners. And that sort of thing. Well changing the income tax would require a constitutional change and it's not necessarily a simple process to make that happen as a no. The General Assembly had to approve This by supermajority vote. And it's already done that Now it's up to the voters so as you mentioned at the November election In Two thousand twenty the voters are going to have the final say and it has has to either be a little confusing but three fifths of the voters who actually read down to the very typically the you know to wherever this appears on the ballot. It three fifths of the people who make that vote. We'll have to say yes or it could be passed by a majority of the people voting in the election overall. Aw Brian I mentioned the wealthier would pay more. So what income levels are we talking about. Yeah well based on the legislation that was already passed that would it only go into effect if the voters approve this The income level is two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. That's the pivot point. Everyone all income below low. That amount would either be. Taxed would be basically would be taxed at a slightly lower rate than it is right now so the current income tax rate whether you're making aw thirty thousand dollars a year or you're making three hundred or three hundred million dollars a year. It's all currently four point. Nine five percent under under this system the people at the lowest level zero to ten thousand dollars a year would be paying four point seven five percent little over ten thousand up to one hundred thousand paying thank four point nine percent and then the they're paying the current rate for their income from between a hundred thousand two hundred fifty thousand so you know the because of the way marginal tax rates work. It's a little bit of a tax cut for people below that threshold. It really starts to shoot up though over that two hundred fifty thousand dollar amount The tax great will jump up to seven and three quarters percent and go up from there for households Joint filers that that make more than a million dollars or individuals who make more than seven hundred fifty thousand dollars. It's going to be nearly an eight percent tax rate in unusually that will not be a marginal tax that would be on the total income that people make hits were retroactively down to the first dollar. They'd be paying eight percent in state taxes. which is quite a jump? So what are some of the concerns that people opposed to this this ID or raising the main argument against this is that it's a Bayton switch. that they say well this sounds good. Now and the governor's big talking point. Is that ninety. Ninety seven percent of Illinois tax payers will see at least a modest reduction in their taxes. And that it's really just the top three percent that you're going to be hit with this but Their concerns that this is really not going to bring in enough money. Long-term to meet the State's obligations to pay down its unfunded unfunded pension liabilities and make meet its commitment on increasing the state support of school funding. There's a lot of talk about reducing the property tax rate on People people and that would have to mean typically that more money would have to come from the state so people say well. It's not enough and they're gonNA come back and it's they'll be able to. They will will raise tax rates further in the future. That's the main critique we're hearing from the other side are you expecting a heavy ad campaign over the next several months from people on both sides of this issue well. The governor himself wrote a five million dollar check. A lot of it was a check or a wire transfer but he he dropped five million dollars into a US defensively independent Political Action Committee. That is going to be trying to encourage people to vote. Yes we have not seen any Campaign Finance disclosures from the main group on the other side of this but they say that they will be out there competing Running ads trying to get voters to reject just this constitutional amendment.

Eight hundred three eight five zero four two two. There's a lot of debate these today's over whether Illinois should move to a graduated income tax instead of the current flat tax. But what you might not know is that Illinois once had graduated tax at least for for a brief period emeritus professor truly wheeler with the University of Illinois Springfield has also been a longtime reporter and state government observer. Join me for a history history lesson. Charlie we're going back to the early nineteen thirties here. The governor was Louis Emerson. He was a Mount Vernon Republican. What led to his decision to seek graduated income tax? I think you have to look at what was happening on the national level internationally. I guess at that time that was right. After the crash in the twenties unease the Great Depression was underway in the economic climate in Illinois was horrendous. They're also been well at that time. The state derive most of its revenues from a property tax on real estate land and buildings and on personal tangible property. Yeah pretty that people owned so for example in the case of family it would be the automobile. If they had one it would be the close it would be. I believe the food in the in the pantry. It would be the furniture for a business. It would be its inventory. It would be whatever vehicles that might have. It'd be the office equipment with the file cabinets. The tables typewriters all of that stuff in it was supposed to be assessed uniformly and as a matter of fact the property tax six actually predated Illinois the territorial legislature of Illinois imposed a property tax. And would happen. Kind of coincidentally there's been a massive reassessment of all property in Cook County in the assessment had delayed property tax bills going out for for a couple of years in so as the Governor noted when he proposed this tax to You know to a joint session. The legislature in late nineteen thirty one. Very few people set aside reserves to cover the taxes and now suddenly we have the depression and they. They don't have the resources so the money wasn't coming in. He had appointed a commission. The commission see appointed to study the situation. They came back with a recommendation Dacian. They recommended that there be an income tax quoting here from the report. The Ferris Distribution of governmental burden yet devised has been accomplished by the federal income tax which had been in place at that point for few years the production of revenues at the expense of those best able to bear the burden and so that was his. Committee's He's recommendation it. Propose graduated income tax. The theory being that income tax would measure the wealth of someone that was not embodied. Intangible things like land automobiles furniture but kind of what was referred to in one references being kind of the the hidden wealth that we don't know about but the income tax would cover it and we had a scramble because not only do we have the ordinary expenses of state government but there were many efforts to provide relief for people who were suffering under under the depression. Charlie had started to imagine this being at a time. I'm a great. Depression is happening. That state politicians would move to do something like implement an income tax. I think part of it was as I said the the assumption was that it. If you're out of a job and you're going to lose your home you have no income in the first place on the other hand. WAS The property tax drought of a job. Until you lose your home home. Your responses will pay the taxes on it. The idea being that people who were fortunate enough to still be working still having income would be the ones who would bear the burden of this tax plus people who had assets that weren't taxed under the property tax would be contributing in the words of the of the report art the be doing their share of the burden so the need is shown but he still has to sell this not only the public but to lawmakers as well. Interestingly enough this his commission that recommended this was made up of people who were I guess the movers and shakers of the time including business interests and they saw this as a better deal for them. MM-HMM I think because as I said earlier if a business is not making a profit has no income they'd have no liability but all their manufacturing equipment equipment. They're real estate. That would still be subject to the property tax and I should point out that the the proceeds feeds from this new graduated income tax. Were all going to be going to pay for local school costs with the idea being that then the the Property taxes that supported schools could be abated somewhat. It was it was seen also as property tax relief and some of the opposition during the legislative session that finally enacted that was along the lines of look. We have to do something really property taxes right away. We don't have time to mess around with a brand new type of tax ax. Let's do something to reduce the impact of property taxes particularly on homeowners who have no means to pay the property taxes and are in danger of of losing their homes. Well a few months after it gets through winds up going to courts and eventually it's thrown out because seeing that it is unconstitutional. And so what happens after that. Well Governor Emerson signed the bill on February twenty second of nineteen. Thirty two in October Tolbert twenty-second of nineteen thirty to the Illinois. Supreme Court Ruled without dissent that it was unconstitutional. And they base the ruling on The eighteen seventy constitution which said the legislature could impose taxes it can provide revenues may be needed by loving attacks by valuation so that every person incorporate show pay tax in proportion to the value of his is her or it's property in the court said well income is property and it requires the constitution says property are pretty has to be taxed on a per value EDF laura basis in proportion to the value of the property. So you can't have a law that applies different tax rates to different levels of income. That's just totally unconstitutional. In November November of nineteen thirty two it was on the national level pretty much democratic clan site we elected Franklin Delano Roosevelt. To be the president in Illinois Annoy Henry Hornere was elected governor and Governor Horn and with sizable democratic majorities in the legislature in Horner proposed what we call today. The sales tax replacing the property tax statewide property tax. I believe the last Levy of a statewide property tax was nineteen thirty. Two horner rescinded it. So the state has not received a penny of property taxes for eighty some years. So Charlie. We've we had a graduated income tax for a very brief period in law that gets overturned earned again in the early nineteen thirties. We go about thirty seven more years until we finally get an income tax in the state of and that was a flat tax. which is what we still have today day a flat tax system? Why did it take so long? I think one of the reasons that took so long. was that the state really wasn't in dire financial straits for much coach. Time as we got closer to the air will in the sixties moving through the sixties there were several sessions including a couple of special social sessions in which the legislature had to increase the sales tax rate because the state was having problems meeting its obligations particularly in the area of welfare programs. That were in place to help people who are down on their luck were costing more than what the people did. The budgeting head anticipated what. The revenues were sustaining and it was also desired to pump more money into local schools to help reduce property taxes. Which I guess is fifty years slater? We still have that ambition and so during the campaign nineteen sixty eight campaign. The Republican candidate Cook County Board President. Richard Ogilvie goofy and the Democratic incumbent. Sam Shapiro who had been elected. Lieutenant Governor in sixty four with Otto Kerner is the governor. Kerner had been named to the Federal Bench as a judge and Shapiro succeeded him. They really didn't make a big issue of the state's revenue condition as they were running from what I read. And from talking to people who were there was kind of a general consensus among the Ogilvie Camp and the Shapiro. Partisans whichever guy one was going to have to bite the bullet and probably proposed an income tax. Thanks so Ogilvie wins. In as a matter of fact on April first nineteen sixty nine in an address that generally suddenly he lays out the reasons why we thanks. We need an income tax. It was still doubt about whether or not you could actually do an income tax. It was pretty clear you could not do was a graduated rate that legislation sation past was signed into law immediately challenged in within a matter of weeks. The Supreme Court ruled that it was valid. Did Not violate the constitution. And then Maybe another couple of weeks later they came out with an opinion that said in essence income is not property it happened in the run-up to the Sixth Illinois Constitutional Convention which I met in December of nineteen in sixty nine and then met throughout the first nine months of nineteen seventy finally agreeing to a revenue article that basically Siklie ratified what the Income Tax Act provided. In other words that we could have we could have an income tax but it had to be at a flat rate or is the Constitution at nine graduated rate. No there was some debate. Some interest in in the Constitution the Revenue Committee and also on the floor of allowing a graduated income tax or freezing the level for personal income despite interest in it it was never incorporated into the final document document which the voters then ratified didn't in late nineteen seventy s the constitution that we have today.

It's I show of twenty twenty and we're examining some of the issues. You'll be hearing a lot about this year. One of those is the upcoming census count. It's not just a big deal for the state state as a whole but also for local communities one of those is the town of beards town in Cass County. Unlike some other rural towns in central Illinois officials in beards towns say their population is growing. The reason has been an influx of immigrants. Most coming there for work at a meat processing. Plant beards down leaders. SAY THEY WANNA make sure. Everyone is counted in the two thousand twenty census. Daisy contrasts went to beards down to find out what's at stake. If their friends and neighbors don't participate hyo has run a grocery store in Beard Stone Justice of the Illinois River for more than twenty years. Mobile Bar lose this one other. They just lost silicon cells foods from his native Mahyco like Cactus and Tortoise now he says immigrants from different countries are moving moving to town so he's expanded his inventory older storms Kisla Juca not a- The authors five years ago most people. We're coming from me. He Co what am I gonNA and Salvador to work in the pork processing plant after the plantation owners more workers from the Dominican Republic and west African in countries are arriving hole but there are concerns. That growth won't be reflected in the twenty twenty senses Leslie Harris Spirits. Town's mayor here. She suspects the census undercounted the town's population in two thousand ten. But I do believe that there is growth in our community. We have twenty one different languages and are a schools that tells me that there's more people and she could be right. According to the Census Bureau some of the hardest account populations are immigrants. Ethnic can racial minorities. Those living in rural towns in young children. One study from George Washington University found that in one recent year Illinois got thirty four billion dollars in federal funding to pay for everything from school lunches for low income students to food assistance and medical care. If all residents don't participate the state one get it's fair share of funding and could even lose two seats in Congress. If we don't have that many people reporting then that's less money for the beards town to operate on but we still still have more people so we need that additional dollars but there are big differences in the census compared to ten years ago then make an accurate count. More difficult particularly for beard's down for the first time. The survey will be completed largely line raising concerns about the lack of broadband access in rural communities on top of that there's fear around participation that proposed citizenship question that was out there for far too long and caused much consternation and fear among communities annuities of Color and immigrant communities. That's Anita Banerjee. She's a director of the Democracy Initiative at Forefront Illinois a Statewide Association of nonprofits. She says although a question about citizenship won't be on the form there's still mistrust and we have to make sure that communities feel safe and protected and one of the ways and doing that east a to have conversation right. This is our community leaders. Local Count Committees. All of that is is important. So that trusted messages. Come from trusted rested messengers. One of those messages is that by law. The Census Bureau is not allowed to share and individuals information with any other branch of government including for example example immigration authorities. Banerjee wants to make sure they were trusted. Voices leaders in churches or schools to pass the message along to others May Number as muddy Salah Fella Chavez mckeon beer study cell Chavez has lived in beards down for twenty four years. She works as a liaison between the elementary school and families always she also plans the community's cultural celebrations like Cinco de Mayo but also throws Qisas Pajamas. Parameswaran Louis that lists Informacion better. Yes Chevy says. She thinks she could help. By sending information about the census home with children. But she says she's cautious about just how much she will push the subject a specially. If some have made up their minds stumbled choko move out of the metromedia. Though so personas graphite fired the repeal. The grocery store owner says he plans to participate also weak little Dole. But he's not sure many others will. He's heard from his customers. That many you're worried after the federal government's recent planned rates across the country. He says people will continue to hide. Lehem Theo could give us a lot whole less thin author. Eleanor legislators set aside. Twenty nine million dollars to encourage participation in the senses and groups like forefront are coordinating and funding outreach. These two they have about eight months to get the message out before the April Twenty twenty count. MDC contras and we'd just listened to that report from. Daisy contrasts intrests which. Mary Hansen helped report now. Mary joins me on statewide to talk more about the census under counting population in any community. Not just beards down but any community really has an impact it does the count determines how a lot of government funding for different programs like school lunches and childcare. Okay assistance and others are allocated and that's true both for four federal funding and for some state funding as well so if a community is undercounted. Wanted I think this is the the point that the beards town mayor was was making that If they're undercounted they still have that number of people that they need to serve But they don't but they you get less money because they're the government thinks that there are fewer people who live there so that's really one of the big risks of under counting beard. Stan would be considered a rural community. Is there a bigger concern. This time around about participation in towns that size and in those locations. I'm not sure about a bigger but there's definitely some some newsham different concerns this At this time around In in talking to some some advocates and local governments there's concern particularly about Internet access And that's because for the first time the the census forms will be largely online. They're really encouraging folks to fill them out online. So if you don't have internet or of poor Internet service at obviously makes it more difficult all to To fill out the census form now just to be clear. Households will still get a paper copy of the senses if they if they haven't filled Out by a by a certain date so they'll get a first reminder to fill out the census online second reminder and if they still haven't filled it out They will be mailed a paper. Copy that they it can then fill out but The Census Bureau is really trying to get people to fill it out online in the bureau has talked a lot about hard to count populations give us an example of what those would be sure so so as we talked about rural communities are definitely a hard to count populations The biggest one I've heard from advocates is actually children under five. Five people. Don't think that they need to include Those little ones on on their census an and they do There's also concerns About counting communities the use of color immigrants in particular after the discussion around the senses. Or excuse me the citizenship question on this end and then other sort of more Hard to count populations include renters as well as a low income folks. We've been talking about the impact on individual communities but when you look at the state as a whole Illinois has lost population relation. What's at stake for the State of Illinois in the census? well as I mentioned there's billions of dollars in federal funding That that these numbers determined but perhaps APPs just as importantly the census determines congressional representation and from the experts that I've talked to. It sounds like it's pretty likely that the state will lose one if not two hugh congressional seats. I'm so that's how we would go from eighteen. Potentially down to sixteen Representatives in Congress. So what does the state been doing. I know there have been some efforts underway. What's going on to try to ensure there's an accurate count so in the budget that was passed in the spring of Twenty nineteen state? Put aside twenty nine million dollars. I'm funding to encourage people to participate when they just Divided up most of that money too large organizations in different regions across the state to help With education efforts information campaigns. Those things to encourage people to participate in the census. There's there's that going on and then also I talked recently to the head To to the heads of the census office which is a part of the Illinois Department of Human Services And these are. They're also gearing up for a statewide. A marketing campaign doesn't happen everyday Mary. What will people be able to expect from the census so in in mid March for for the majority majority of people they'll get those mailed notices that I mentioned to encouraging them to fill out the census online? So that'll happen in been march. Feud don't fill it out. Those are progressive notices until. We'll be seeing you know. The census enumerators coming out in the In the late spring early summer knocking on doors and taking US census forms arms. That's our reporter.

Sears explains Senate bill s twenty twenty four eighty eight B also known as the securing wages against theft or sweat bill has been introduced in the state legislature several times in the past five years but didn't didn't pass both houses until last June cuomo said he had problems with some of the legal provisions in the bill but mark donelly who helped introduce it says lawmakers I have been open to making changes.

Bill and this year's butch and some faith litters walked twenty twenty to be the year Oregon passes what they see as better gun control laws. More from Eric Take it off the group UH lift.

A state and national campaign led by. AARP ARPITA rain in the rising cost of prescription drugs is making headway and Wyoming. Lawmakers say. They're getting the message especially from folks who live on fixed incomes Sam Chamois with Aarp Wyoming says. The median income for Medicare beneficiaries is just twenty six thousand dollars a year and that doesn't go a long way for folks who on average Ridgeville. Four and five prescriptions. A month. It's a very real pocketbook issue when you are having to make these hard decisions about whether to groceries or pay for your medication ACACIA. That's a big problem. And that's I think the frustration that these legislators are hearing chamois points to legislation recently passed in Florida that would allow lower cost medicine to be imported ported from Canada as one option Wyoming lawmakers could consider in the upcoming session. Big Pharma has argued that high profit margins helped underwrite their research and development costs I which have produced significant advances in medicine nationally the US spins nearly twice as much on healthcare as other comparable countries and high drug prices are a significant driver of rising costs. Sunway says the stop are ex. Greed campaign isn't about discouraging continued research and development. But it's important to find middle ground that place. Where are people don't feel like they're being taken advantage of and that the drug company executives are making millions and millions of dollars and they're trying to figure out how to pay for their prescription at the federal level of bill to allow Medicare to use it significant purchasing power to negotiate with drug makers for lower prices has cleared the house but has not yet yet been taken up by the Senate finally Mattia Ramleh gone reports and environmental groups public health? Experts are questioning the frequent use of emergency approvals approvals that allow farmers to use toxic pesticides the EPA reports last year it issued emergency approvals for use of a pesticide that is is known to kill bees on more than sixteen million acres senior scientist at the center for Biological Diversity. Nathan Donnelley's says in Tennessee. The agency recently green lighted use of too synthetic pesticides on sorghum and cotton fields and it's likely more approvals will be issued this growing season there's an exemption and approval process carved out for true emergencies. EPA has been abusing this emergency approval process and we believe approving uses a heart really actual emergencies. He says more than one billion pounds of pesticides are used each year. In the United States Donnelly acknowledges there are situations nations that warrant the emergency approval of certain pesticides such as an influx of hard to kill pests and diseases that can wipe out crops and financially strained farmers I however he points out. That repeatedly designating emergencies isn't how the system is designed to work by Clifford. Thanks for wrapping up your week with public. Do Service yes. We are member endlessly supportive.

They would not come out in a good light so I've stopped shows before because when I see someone hold up their phone to show in my head I go all right. You have about a seven second clock and if I don't see the phone go down. That means they're videotaping raping. So I go okay then I I'll stop show and I'll say hey. Do you know but the phone down. I'm taking because I do meet and greets afterward you saw that. I take photos those with everyone who wants to take a photo. I meet everyone who wants to meet me so we'll do then now it's the show. Sit Down enjoy yourself. How coming across like astle though right well because you do it once? And that's it that's it you do Kinda roast. The Guy Bit message. Yeah Yeah one line. I said one time this was right after. This is right after the Louis C. K. story broke and I saw this ride for someone. Recorded him doing sad he said and he didn't know he was being recorded and he said something about the Parkland shooting and someone got that and then release. The audio did not did not go well. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He's done enough but at the same time so that had just happened and I and I I saw someone I was trying a new bit and I saw someone someone with the phone holding it up and I told them you know. Put It away and they just didn't like no. I'm just GONNA keep recording. I bought a ticket and I say say I'm not GonNa let you Louis C. K.. Me If you Louis C. K.. Me I'll Louis C. K.. You implying the masturbating right in front of you. So I said that to them. They're like that's a fair. Put away the mostly the fans there what we as performers. I have to remember sometimes. Is that allow. The fans aren't ingrained into this world. Like they don't know the rules. They don't know everything we do it every day. You you were Breslin music me with comedy So we know the rules. We know how a show is supposed to be run. A lot of people don't know they don't know as the same way. I went to a football game last year and I. I didn't know that they have new bag rules. So my wife couldn't have her bag she needed. Like a clear yes in the car. Drop all this thing but like we know the rules so we we don't know those rules a Lotta people. Don't know the comedy rule so lots of times. It's just you informed. People they go.

All right We discotheque forever but I first of all there's no need to Once someone does a joke. Okay there's no need to turn to your table and be like that's so true one time. Remember when you were at the store check no no no. Here's how comedy show works. This comedian. ONSTAGE says joke you laugh at jokes then you shut up and listen for next job and listen for Latte. There's no thing where you turn back conversation that that that gets annoying The check drop is the most notorious thing in comedy that Comedians hate eight. We hate the check drop. That's that's when that's when the show is about ten fifteen minutes away from ending and The comedy club has to cash everybody out. So they put the Czechs down for all your drinks and food and then because then people are no longer paying attain. There must be a distract. Some clubs are great. There's a club called the stress factor in New Brunswick New Jersey and they don't do the backdrop until the end of the show. They wait a couple of clubs. Do that but Yeah when that happens because then you have conversations conversations. People turning like what two drinks is twenty five blocks dot manager. Now you got that whole thing so I literally have a pardon my act act. That's more story driven and long form and not bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-ba not rapid-fire for the check. Drop so you can Dan tune out for a second interesting back in. I've literally put it in there and things like that. Like people don't realize the COMEDIANS are doing. I'm sure there's a million things in wrestling wrestling where we go like. Oh Shit fight in the crowd and no one's watching the madden born rules. Just put somebody in hold. Oh yes. They're not watching genus anyways. The you'll always see like like you ought to Nassau Coliseum or something's fights in the other all the time on TV. You're supposed to look in this way. Everyone's looking over there. Yeah I was wondering about that. 'cause I just watched a w bite for the fallen and There was I forget what match. There's something where the crowd was booing and then cheering but not for like the pot the time when someone made sense. Yeah it didn't make sense at all and I think even even the announcer. They said something like they're not reacting to something else going on the crowd and I'm sitting there going what's happening in the crowd and shoot it. Yeah Yeah yes and then so. Obviously the wrestlers then become aware of that they go all right headlines Ako rested headlock. Exactly yeah exactly unlock. Yeah do you guys when you hear the crowd do something like that. Like you're conscious of it your. Yeah Oh yeah totally whereas was supposed to be on like when you're on stage and you know everything that's going on career. Obviously we were in the round but still I can tell what's going on I can tell the people are into the sides of paying attention if they're looking over here looking over there waiting for something else to go on. Yeah so you got to learn how to read. Your crowd is what you get with experience and that goes for comedy. It's crowded analysis. If people knew what I was thinking about during my I said it would boggle their minds. Because I'm thinking I'm not just thinking about what I'm saying I'm thinking about okay. Like all right win wins. The check drop is that person. Videotaping me That person seems like they've had their arms to the whole time. Let me let me try something else to get them. It might cursing too much do they. Did they say something I'm in about five minutes. I'm going to tell a joke to call it. A black guy wears a black guy. You're orchestrating the whole thing which I'm sure whether it be rock show wrestling show. You're probably doing something similar. They let me ask you look a rocker. Most you mentioned the arms trust when you're especially as an opening band you get a lot of arms crossed so for us different different ways to be saying to their face urge I contact always makes people very nervous to mother opened up a PR. What what are your tricks? Comedian and try to get somebody to do that. I contact same thing like Ah 'cause there's this illusion that a lot of audience members have that the performer cannot see them. It's this weird thing where it's like. Well I'm in an audience. It's like a movie theater and we can see you. We know we can see your reaction. We see when you cross your arms. We see you when you're turning even if you're if we can't hear that you're talking to a friend we see that you're doing it so yeah there are and So one thing that I've done one trick and I pass on to a couple of the COMEDIANS. Sometimes Times you'll have people talking like like I said like Oh that's so true. Remember the time when like they'll have a conversation during your set and they're not realizing that they're being too loud or they're they're drunk or whatever what I'll do is I'll quieter and I'll start talking very slowly and very quiet and not yelling. 'cause if I yell over them. The audience didn't raises their voice to be heard themselves. But if he's talking quiet and they're like and then become self aware and they're like Oh shit like I can hear me very very clearly like no one wants to be that guy at the club where like right before the music the music drops out and that's when you're the one screaming so I got. Everyone fears that everyone. Everyone doesn't want to be that person. So yeah the the whole Jerko character in two thousand eight nine with a suit and tie guy that you I use that element completely. I was watching no country for old men with the Anton Talk Sugar. Yeah Yeah have your and spoke very quietly and so when I started doing that I found that made. This was in the height. The what all right. I'm talking quieter. I'm forcing people to have to shut up and listen to me. And then when they shut up and listen that's when they get into it and then you then you hooked him. Think about like a theme similar things happen when you're watching A.. When watching TV show when when they're having conversation win? Game of thrones was did a couple episodes where they're like really dark and you are seeing. I paid more attention because I was looking for all the little details. And then that's when I cut cassette 'cause I'd I'd watch the show with all the lights on in the house and stuff going on a phones out but like now when it's dark episode and I can't see all lights are off. I'm watching it night. Phones done moans like now paying attention so there are little tricks like that that you can do that will make An audience pay an is. Pay attention whether there'd be comedy a wrestling Moore's yeah or whatever I I have to compliment you because I've been watching A. W. O.. I'M A fan. Yes you have got me hooked. It seems like that age W is for the marks and wwe is like it. You know it's it's like the difference between your kiss. FM Pop music where they're trying to like appealed to everyone they they want. They want People driving their mini vans to school not to be offended. And then you have then you flip channels too like the death metal station where they're like we have our fans it is. It's like you said it's an alternative to what's now become the norm and it's nothing wrong with having people giving people a chance to have options absolutely genitive active. Grateful like you. That are super interesting. Those creating a huge buzz through overselling out these buildings and five ten fifteen minutes that was against they like that for the next year. I I don't know but at least you're giving people something different than you said something and I and say this. I love 'cause when because whenever we talk you asked me about comedy and I and I and I got to wrestling Uses something in a press conference where your Promo at for the fall and was the first time you've walked out there with like no script.

We've had some weird ones but that's always fun for me because you never know you never know the answer and terms of how couples get together very very rarely are you. Is it just well. We ran a bar. She was cute. I walked in very rarely. So it's always a great wife I met my wife on on On or I'll tell the whole story you say she's one of us. Yeah Yeah Yeah So allow I'm at my wife. I I was working working in San Francisco California I was on a radio show there. I was burned out from the road. I decided to take a little bit of time off. Comedy decided to Do a morning radio show so morning radio show and I had moved San Francisco to do it. I decided 'cause I didn't know anyone in San Francisco. I know friends. I wanted to make friends so we played this game on the radio. Show called tinder or grinder. Everything would flip a coin basement. Lansana going either tinder date or grinder date and For those you. You don't know grinders gay tender and So you would have to go on the day the rule. I'm what you call go-getter my friend. Okay so a day one flip. The coin lands grinder now my wealth. I gotTa do this and so I meet. We make a profile very quickly match up with a very tall tall bearded red headed man. Who tells me only to call him? Ginger Bear My name is ginger bear you referred to me only as ginger bear and I'm like cool ginger beer. You just met Gummy bear. Let's do this. Yeah so we go on and I told him told Radio Bit told him out straight okay she told us. Yeah Yeah and I feel horrible doing the right so I and he's like yeah. Let's just go hang out and we went out. We had a great time which was sports bar we. We're we're watching a game. We're just like laugh. The need like a imagine. Just hanging out with your boys and it's like the best night ever and then every now and then your guy but he goes you know you look really good tonight like what it I was like. Oh well thank you. I appreciate that right you know and And it was a great time. Then this is the fact. I'm still friends with ginger beer to to this day. Nice the next day. I'm going to go on the radio and talk about the day. We get a call from a listener. Who Says Yeah you guys do in Tinder Grinder? You should hop on. There's other APP for the game. It's called three-under and I'm like Dauth constrained. And he goes. Oh that's tender for people trying to have threesomes. That's the thing that's the thing. They got married way to quit three. That's right now. If anyone's listening to podcasts their car guys like slamming on his brakes. Download this fringe yet. Well here's a I'm not lying. It's not called three hundred anymore. Tender sued them for copper infrigement. Now it's called Field F. E. L. D. you're welcome This is a real APP. I went on that one matched up with two women rolling on a date together. One of the women did not show up for whatever reason I went on a date with just the other one one and the other one I married two and a half years later why so that kind of opens the door to as women. I Love Women's. Something we have in common is great and she's also a tall. Yes go We we like to call call you. People researchers she's a richer So Yeah I've done. I've done very well for myself. That he's have you breached the field A subject Oh yeah there's there's been breached there's been some there's been some region. Yeah now I it's like I said said she loves women. I love women it but it's something we don't do it all the time. We're not like every day every week every month but every now and then it's my birthday. Ah We gotTA bring another nature yes bringing other reach and then just the little person well hopefully now because yeah my wife is in charge of she makes the decision and The but we all the the the the the person is always well aware there there has never been a situation where wife comes home through the front door like hey got your surprise. Then all of a sudden woman goes well. We agreed to that that that no. That's weird you gotta be really Kinky. That'd be doing the threesome. And the little person. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's a whole a whole their level man but So Yeah we we've done that a few times and for anyone out there. That's why I want to try that with my partner. I say great wonderful but constant communication during UNCON- during before checking in. What's okay? What's not okay? Gods what Wa- what our rules here constant communication there was literally a time when we had My wife and I went out. We met this great woman was down. It was all about it. We got back to your front door at the front door. My my wife's kind of looks me goes. I don't WanNa tell you this. I'm just not feeling it. I'm not feeling and I went okay. Man stopped went I'm thank you. I'm sorry not night if you WANNA come in and have a cup of coffee or a drink or something. Ginger beer ginger beer. He's locked locked in the dungeon downstairs full pulp fiction style ball. Yeah Yeah Yeah. But that's not happening tonight and the fact that I was able to do that means that in the future Wife and I are good. They're no one incident. No one act is GONNA be worth making the whole marriage crumble. So I I just say be very communicative very And be very open with what you are comfortable with that that that is my tip for for anyone who's thinking about doing that. He's also got another tip for you. Yeah now that would be the perfect spot this podcast break and for you you go like oh well speaking of Three ways group coming over and you want to feed them all Omaha steaks and if you feel a little sore afterwards worst. DDP Oh that's my favorite part about this podcast. And I'm a fan of this podcast Jericho so is is when you break in and you go on the ranch and then you go into go right in the ad the Omaha steaks their legendary. Well you know what the best part was I. There's always a little change range and the audio like because I had a three so anyways broad now that we're talking about your three way Omaha steak was on the Moxie podcast. which did this ridiculous number? And now everyone's talking about homeostasis. I said those Omaha steaks guys. Hey Ho you do only because they got more than those monies worth on this one late it was something he was talking about like a drama or something that he endured in your life traumas thanks. That's right it was the best transition. It's funny when we were talking. A friend of mine. Gary Holt he plays for slayer he loves slash hates these little women of Atlanta Anta. Oh Yeah I had to look it up to see what it was called us what I was doing. It wasn't being rude but okay. What do you think those type of shows? How Man Well first of all there's To cast members members of the little women shows that I've actually dated really back in the day. So how many of them is there There I think there's three there's a little women L. A.. Little Women New York Women Atlanta as you made a little bit of two so I I don't I shouldn't say the CAST members they're not consenting to for that information so so take a guess yeah yeah but DM ME on twitter. I'll tell you yes so but those shows you know what here's how I view it wouldn't be necessarily something that I would do or that. I would wish a very close friend of mine to do but my the thing is is you reach or having their fun. Being trashy on reality television I consider US equals. We should have the opportunity to be trashy on reality television to it's fine. It's like like I've been a big proponent of I think they should do little person. UFC fights like like. I think that they should because I know some friends that are trained like they're like dirt like their black belt in Jujitsu they're they're legit really good martial artists and I would love to have our own division. I said that one time on a radio show and someone called in like that. That's exploitive in week. That was not. It's not well you're not gonNA have like a dwarf fight Conor McGregor. You know like that that would be exploitive. That'd be horrible. Give us their own division in who decides whether it's exploited or not yeah. I'm glad you mentioned that because it made me think of something else I wanted to ask you about it released to youth hockey and it's ridiculous. I'll tell you about that but I talk about something else. That's super important for everybody listening right now. The state of your mental health and wellbeing mind and body.

Surreal the real thing so in in Canada when you play hockey there's different divisions Oh Yeah my division when you hit about nine years old midget your gadget hockey gay. And now they're taking away midget hockey calling. I played midget hockey. Yeah it's not a size thing it's just the name how how do you feel about that. Are Banning it now. I'm see I'M I. I don't even know if I'm the right right. Got Ask because that doesn't offend midget. Yeah Horn said. It makes me money. Call me midget literally said Yeah. Very good philosophy. I don't don't care For me it's all about words. People use when when they're intent. Is there what they mean by it because if some guy drives is by in a pickup truck and yells you little person. He's using the term. I'm still like that a very derogatory way horrible horrible but so I'm not the one and I won't get onto serious tangent right here but I feel like right now. People all or almost getting jealous of other people's of when other people get offended like people get offended and people that aren't offended are like Oh my God I should be offended. Mhm Look Look how much attention. They're getting when they get offended. I should be offended by something. What's my thing rotate? And then they dig in they find this thing. Don't call me a janitor. Call me a Yes for the custodial arts. I'm offended by the Janet Ling. I feel like midget has a little bit of that in it where we were searching for our word word and they're in. There's a joke I used to make in my act where I would say like. I've heard this where people have said like when you call dwarf permitted. It's the exact same calling black percent of the N.. Word into that. I would say midget please like no. No no the same not even close so but at the same time. I understand like because we have midget football out here. And and there's a a similar movement going on to end that I get it but it doesn't bother me. I think there's bigger problems in the world. Go solve those by you know. Once we've solved solve all the problems we could get to the bantamweight the midget wait the mighty mytalk. We'll figure that out. We'll figure out that we can't call the NBA owners owners anymore. Like we'll get to that ours. Come on right really cared away. They own the team. The memo. That's fine you don't own the people young team this right. You are the owner of this team. I mean Steve Bomber. Pay Two billion dollars for the damn clippers and you're not the owner but but at the same time I'm open if someone is offended by something like that and they explained to me why maybe I'm not seeing it from their perception. Maybe I'm just like I'm being my Gig. Get off my lawn. Maybe I'm being that guy so if someone wants to explain amy why does offensive to them and that happened recently with me where there was Something happened in the news. I was very like that's not what and then a friend of mine who who actually affected told me about it was like Oh wow now did not even understand. I didn't even think about it from that. Perspective right cool. You're right right. Thank you for educating me now. Now I'm better so I'm open but yeah I'm not I'm not. I'm not offended when you were younger. And they teenager whatever you No Pun intended as you look up to other little people that kind of inspired you. Yeah Warwick Davis He He played willow And Dan you know. That's that was Kenny. Baker Davis do that in the warranty. Work Davis was Con He was is Lebron and also in return of the Jedi. He was wicked. That's the way it gets. Sorry sorry with yet. Trust me Barts also too in that show. The life is short and Very funny in that very very physical. Yeah I loved him the actor. This very people are GonNa know this next reference but Billy Barty dog who was also in the movie will but he was like sort of the trend setter of all dwarf actors and then What was he the trendsetter he he in the sixties and seventies and he had a legitimate acting career If if you look at his. IMDB he started. He was like six years old and worked until he was like eighty. Because that's the word I know that name. Yeah this time. But I can't really place place when he was in like jared the Mel Brooks Are Mel Brooks movie. Life stinks. Yeah he was in that yeah he was in that he was the guy He was also in willow as the wizard. That goes like. Show me the finger. Universal is like you. He's that guy he was nineteen thirty three gold diggers figgers of one thousand nine hundred eighty nine years old. See that's always wondering maybe even wizard of Oz but he's a little bit too young for that. Yeah yeah look at the nineteen thirty uh-huh ridiculous and it's just one after another so and then he was also in the happy. Hooker goes to Washington. Evan Billy actually founded the organization. LPGA Little People America. Oh he founded that so one of the reasons why a lot in that's a big organization organization. There's there's conventions And I've gone to many of them as a kid and a couple of conventions. What kind of stuff do you do? You do there Well they will tell you that that the convention is for socialization Pro Like you get to learn you. See new products There's clothing swaps their sporting events.

Yeah did you guys can drink away on the cruise to and you weren't performing God you had. How's your loaded at everything? You went to every single event. Yes I wanted to have have all the fun every van I I was watching you I was I was watching the ACDC cover band was watching I did the DP. jogos doing doing like There's all the bands like the Ozzy Osbourne Tribute Dan. All the wrestling shows 'cause I WANNA do I wanNA experience at all and and one thing I one one thing I will say this shutouts all your fans and The the people that are on the cruise is I've told people about the crews and a lot of the other comics like I`Ma I must suck like you walk around and everyone's like bothering you go. No Jericho crews fans were very respectful very cool. You were walking around and everyone knows you ju- going every single show and like everyone knows who you are on that boat and and would you agree like they're they're they're really cool. I found when I did the kiss cruise when played it the first day. Yeah it's a picture fast church second day. It's Okay Thurday. You're just one of the gang. Everybody was cool. Yeah we're the same vibe on the cruise as well. Yeah and the cool part. Is that like you had those designated meet and greets set up. So it's like. Hey you WANNA get the photo in the autograph half great coming to meet and greet will do it then. Yeah and then you got then. You'll have time. That's where that thing but until then let's sit back and watch Corey Taylor do do Spongebob squarepants. By the way those other boats were not ready they were not ready for story. Oh my God they were so. We're watching Corey. Taylor Import Yen Bahamas. Your doc yeah and there's boats that are on either side of us because we're all docked in Corey starts his concert as we're still docked and you could tell that people on the other boats were walking out to their balconies and like being like. Oh what's what's going on with that one and some of them. Let's be honest very large urban larger boats. They vaguely view wrestling fans man. We started chance we started yelling. We point one's boat and be live cure both both sides. Aw ships or check. Yeah that was the chance. We're great. I remember seeing all these old people that are going from the Mediterranean or whatever their Bermuda shorts what as long on our peoples and not doing it maliciously just doing a good time fun. We're not food phone anything at your boat when we got Taylor doing a damn acoustic set over here. We're having a great time and that man I will and that's your thing about whenever you go to a wrestling show especially some of the More underground wrestling shows and certainly in Asia. W because it's like marks. They're the chance are very creative. I gotTA give props to a lot of wrestling fans. There's some chance for I'm just like wow that's solid that's like good comedy right. Well you know once again. There's a fine line though where you don't want people taking over the show shirt joining have fun navigate like you said earlier. I paid my ticket. Yes she did. But you wouldn't pay your ticket for a Broadway play and search Julia Roberts relying read arraign over the past right now. I would say this when. How good does it feel because you say the restaurants pay attention to the crowds so when you have like a dust and Reynolds and he hears the crowd chant you still got it? That's got feel pretty damn good yeah. It's the one they said that to me is a he'll jerk. I was never lost that the school I find sometimes especially in this day and age. That fans are so much quote unquote in the No. The bill think they're smarter than the average bear. And you know you deserve it stuffing so once again come join in have a great time be respectful in realize. Sometimes you don't chant sometimes you you keep your mouth shut or sometimes you fall along with what's going off. There was there was one guy and this is a this is on the Jericho cruise when you were doing. A live. Talk is Jericho Jim. Ross and Jerry lawler right and they were telling the story about Owen Hart Right. Wow it got shut down real fast de eh like Jim Ross is telling the most emotional story. Yeah I've ever heard about him. Having to essentially tell a world wide wrestling audience that Owen Hart past the and one guy tried in you you could tell. Jr's almost starting to cry and one guy starts going in like everyone. Everyone just like shot Guy Short yes not at the time and thankfully he stopped very quickly but yeah that that was the only time the guy during your said that was trying to rush the stage. Oh yeah this is a terrorist or something. What happened there? Oh Oh God yeah. I totally forgot about that. That was a he just wanted a hug. It was Russell stage. Like Dude. Don't come any closer like he was yelling and screaming saying and people were telling me to be quiet then he got up and got a bum rushed the stage. Yeah they took him out and he was cool but like and I like. He's one of those guys where I can tell he wasn't like he didn't have any malicious intent behind it. He was very drunk just very happy time. But it's probably have a show to do that and I don't know you're are not militias right like you like some of the times when like fans were not in the field in sporting events like the the athlete gives me a hug or something. I'm like I don't do that. We all remember Monica Seles injured angry. sleepnumber ruled don't try and pick me up. That's the number one rule. I hate that shit and it was great. I remember that guy tried to rush the stage. I stood up it was like. Scu is right there like. Don't do this over there over there. We're good I. I'm I'm not worried about my safety. I'm very worried about yours speaking of the cruise I I never told you about the survey results. Everybody that went on the cruise got a survey afterwards asking them about their experience in order to tell you about something that came back on that about you but before before we let me share a message from our friends at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They want everyone to have a happy and safe holiday. So Do I. I know you guys know the risks about driving drunk you get the crash. People get hurt or killed but let's take a moment to look at some surprises statistics. You might not know almost twenty nine people in the US die. Every every day and alcohol impaired vehicle crashes. That's one person every fifteen minutes okay and even though drunk driving fatalities of fallen by a third third in the last three decades driving crashes still claim more than ten thousand lives each year thinking about that. Many people are unaware that driving while. Oh Hi can we just as dangerous. Here's the thing about this. In two thousand fifteen forty percent of drivers killed in crashes tested positive for drugs and marijuana not so harmless after all is it. Check this out from two thousand seven to two thousand. Fifteen marijuana use among drivers killed in crashes doubles the truth is driving having while high is deadly. Stop can yourself if you're impaired from alcohol or drugs don't get behind the wheel if you feel different drive different drive high get got a diy drive sober or get pulled over a right. Also talk is Jericho is supported by Diamond Dallas page and it's amazing to I programme DP. He is joining us. Thanks by giving all past and present military members fifty percent off the DWI APP and the GDP wide DVD's because every day is veterans day. A DP why everyone knows that deep has done for me. It's helped my wrestling. Career lasted forty. Nine years old Fauzi singing better than ever there. I HAVE THE D. Why Apple iphone house by breathing stretching and use it all the time you guys know? I can't say enough about how much. GDP is helped me. I wanted to do the same for you on your life starter. New Start today and if you are arrive ever served in the military do it for fifty percents off at Dby Dot Com getting the best physical and mental shape. Shape your life and go do it now. Did I tell you about the still win. The cruise is done. You get a survey of everybody and you ask them you know what was your favorite act. And what was your favorite act that you hadn't heard of before the crews and number one on the list was you that seriously Brad Williams liberate Williams Williams. That's that's kind of cool to know that you're appealing to a whole new audience. Yeah and that. And that's the only reason why I wanted to do everything on the boat. I went everything because I just wanted to explore explore. I wanted to be all these new fans and I've gotten many people come up to me at at at shows all over the country that go sign the cruise. That's why we're here. And then they see on the next x one and then it it it. It's cool. I've I've got some friends that do and Like Craig Gas who's coming back He he was telling me that the kiss cruise really becomes like a family. Because he's did the kiss the kiss cruise for like eight minutes or something he says it really becomes like the same people on the boat as an I annual meeting for everybody. Yeah I feel like that's the best Jericho Cruz is GONNA be. It's GonNa be trying to do. Yeah making a Hannity and we all I'll get to come in and I'll say this man cruises in the comedian world are like. Oh that's where you go when your career is dead really and you can only do cruises like yeah. It's it's SORTA as it's still like that now not now because there's like theme right so now like I say I did the Jericho crews everyone's like like. Oh my God. That sounds amazing. Yeah now you do like the three eleven cruise or my buddy. Chris Puertas the kid rock crews. And everyone's like. Oh God ah that sounds. I had people Bruce Jingles. I think you might have contact with eighteen people contact members because he just wanted to do the cruise. Yeah same with Sarah Tiana. Ah I think you mentioned her as well. These guys are coming on because they they WANNA be a part of it. You know along with bands and all that stuff too and trust me. None of us are getting rich from the crews and the only guy that didn't make money on the first one not about that. It's about Kook creating annual vacation with the community and people want to. Do you make a couple of bucks but you get a free cruise and have a great time. It's a paid vacation. Yeah and like you say you probably like you didn't make money but at the same time we would you trade it in no. I'll al get it back now that we have number two. I'll get it back at some point but you got you gotTA build buildings start from scratch and I love the and also so i. I would argue that maybe other than myself. No one had more fun on that cruise than you. You think nothing else. It's a giant party that I'm paying for them. Disco Inferno cost you. You came out like you've told us you told disco story on the PODCAST passport a a year and a half to do it. Yeah didn't do it no and So yeah you dressed up as disco inferno on the Halloween Performance Pasi Awesome. Did you dress up at all. I I did not but I will tell you and This is how much my my fan boy out. There's a show. That's in Hollywood loyd travel. Sometimes it's called the Goddamn comedy jam. It's a lot of fun. It's where a comedian Picks a song that they like. They do like a five minute comedy. Set that they they they explain why they like a certain song and then a live band plays the song they sing the song with the live band. It's a great show. Now it's a great show and they took it to Austin Texas as part of a comedy festival. I was going to be on the festival. They asked me to show. I've done it a few times. I dressed up one one time. Like as As Kid Rock I came out with like a for fake fur coat and like did the whole thing. I dressed up as many fred durst. I I WANNA instagram. Frederick commented on it and it was like wow okay not available to do Olympics get show. And this year I dressed up as you you and did SOS because that was the only thing. Yeah Yeah by the way tricky lyrics and they're all similar her. Yeah it's all like It's hard to get in like it's the love you gave me like. It's a it's all like in the same realm in but it's all true those are all the time bass player who knows the words. Just go. Oh that's how it goes. How would you choose that song that was? We're backstage in Germany. And I remember it come on shuffle or rich had it it was his original idea and I was like all this perfect. Because it's dark you wouldn't expect it. It has a very well as is a heavy song. It does that that opening piano wrath with auntie haunting isn't as when you're metal band it's great version is much better than shares. Well I like every like here's my thing with the cover if you're going to cover change it like ah during a live show okay. That's great. That's the moment that's fine. But if if you're GONNA release a cover song why would why would I go get your version of the exact same. It's the same thing make you a little bit. Different aches room where it'd be you doing SOS rather be Liscio has behind belies. All Y- yeah. Every disturbed song is a cover now company by five finger. Yeah the the The the disturbed sound of silence. Silence he hit for them huge huge day. I'd figure skaters in the Olympics skate to that things Zombie by battles. There's one hundred million views on. Yeah 'cause they change yeah it's a completely updated version right. Yeah yeah so I would say if you're a band out there and you're like let's do a cover whatever. Just make sure it's different. Make his own. Talk about your big announcement here. Oh Yeah well We were so excited and my wife and I after we got home from the Chris Jericho Rockin Wrestling Raider at sea that we could not contain ourselves and we had a lot. We had a lot of fun and Very soon There is a third member of the family. We'll be they'll becoming my wife. My my wife is pregnant. I did it. You know the best part of that is for example a comedian. What's I got a whole new realm of material? Oh I'm so excited and like it's that's the thing is if you track my specials like if you look at my first showtime special I'm talking a lot about when my sister Had her first kid and as an uncle and being and what that experience Yes I'm willing to work from the family lucky me and then My neck special was all about my dad. My Dad fought and beat skin cancer And so that like. That's my favorite favorite one if you ever wanted to like material based on that yeah. It's it's call daddy issues. I believe is running on Amazon prime. Yeah and then. The third one the netflix special that it was all about Getting married so got all this stuff about my wife who was called That one's called the degenerates. It's on Netflix. Watch it you'll hear that I you'll hear why I can never win an argument with my wife. She's a fourth don black belt in taekwondo so no end in probably the next one will be all about being a dad and and I'm really excited man and you know and for those who are wondering Some wives pregnant. She's tall so it's GonNa be. It's a twenty five percent chance kid's GONNA WARF seventy five percent chance kid's GONNA be tall. I I have no preference I the pros and cons of both but I was on there there. Is you know like the kids tall great you know. Why can't hide snacks for me on the shelves anymore? That a great finally find out what it's more pop tart taste like. I've never seen them. That'd be good. But then the bad side the kid grows up. He's taller than me. Like eight years old trying to discipline them. That's not GonNa go to well then you have then. You have the Dwarf Kid. I Love David Wharf kid because my wife is Chinese. So it'd be an Asian baby and Holy Shit. Asian Dwarf Baby. Yeah that's not a kid that's currency that's that's just that's just cuteness. That's great do you know how much an Asian in China worth of the block March. We when you see me driving around that's why But then you know but then if the kid is a dwarf and then doesn't like being war hates being dwarf. That's GonNa be really hard for me because I'm not gonNA look at the kid be like well. I don't know how it happened. Maybe he got it from your mom I mean so yeah. It's a very exciting and I I will say this I I I love watching Like because on your instagram and on and on and on on the cruise as busy as you are Chris Jericho with Fauzi Ozzie. With a w with this podcast you still have a lot of time where you post Nimby like. Hey look I'm doing stuff with my kids. I mean a dad or You had something where like you were at your kids hockey game and they won the coaching it. Oh cool for me. This year has been very schedule has been very light by design and also by just the Kismet of aws he w and fuzzy being off record so for the first time ever. I got to coach one of my kids and I don't really know anything about baseball. I could try the guy that You know throws the balls and sons football player. My daughter plays softball. My other daughter decided she wanted to try for hockey and I thought well I know about hockey I can do that. Hey those really cool to be able to do that because I remember one of the great things when I was growing because my dad was the head coach or tried to be kind of fun for me. Power you as a Coach Dad like are you the guy that's going to like I saw some video Days ago there was a massive brawl like a little like a little league game. Har- you're going to be a yellow scream but that's not me because I just want to make sure that the kids had fun and also the pay attention. He adds a lot like like you know puppies or they just sorta looking over here especially preteen girls girls. Yeah Oh my gosh. There's GonNa be a stop to run down the ICE. The bike is there's no is okay. Run down the floor. You understand what I'm saying. Yeah it's ice hockey that you have here you know the one of the ladies would say You got a dribble the PUCK. I make no stick handled. Talk Bass all your stick handling it. Yeah you're sticking with the puck down the ice. That's what it is it of that but I will say like I've got friends that are as have a career and but also they make that time and they have time on to be a dad. And you're going to have that too as we wind down here because you're still on the road. Yep and now you're GONNA have to a adjust your schedule according but you still going to be on the road to to do. You're living now. When I went to Columbus the place was very full? It was the second show of the night shows. Are you seeing your career grow. Yeah yeah it's really cool. ooh Now it used to be friends with call me up and be like. Hey I'm gonNA come to the show on Friday. It'll be great a leader tickets and they'd be like Oh have like eight France brands like great alleviate eight now. I can't do that now in friends are like. Hey I'm going like eleven people. You just like leaves twelve tickets now. I'm sold out like I can I get to. I can throw to anywhere but now I can't do anymore and that's that's exciting and obviously puts more money in my pocket this game for that because it seems like as a comedian step is always a strong. Stand up your Sitcom. Yeah get your movie. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah that is that is sort of the plan is get what get a TV. Show be in movies and all that. But I don't see a world where I'm ever not doing stand up comedy uh-huh and you can tell that it's a special art form and that the people that do it really into it. When like Ray Romano released a netflix special? This year. That guy with everybody loves Raymond has more money than God and he still doing. Stand up releasing specials touring Seinfeld about six months ago. Yeah at a small theater. Two thousand thousand people in Tampa last night. Last night I was at a bar in Woodland Hills California. A friend of mine called me up and was like hey I got this show. Could you do it for we are our headliner. Dropped out. Well apparently he made a couple of other phone calls because Howie Mandel showed up famous Canadian Howie Mandel of course he and he went onstage. You did stand up and he and I and I and I was talking to him afterward he goes. Yeah everyone thinks I make my money from like dealer no deal or America talent he goes. I make more money doing stand up. I'm like that's where I'm I'm I'm doing that constantly so I don't see a world where I'm ever not doing standup if I get a TV show movies. Awesome love that If there's a if there's has ever a third season of I'm Chris Jericho dammit talk to. Who got it right? It took me eight years to get the first one sold for years to get the second season so in two years. THIRSTY THIRD SEASON OF. I'm Chris Jericho damage everybody but yeah no matter what happens. I'll always come back. Stand up because he and you know this from your ventures there's nothing that matches touches the live yup feeling live notching exactly the instant feedback the all because like you said you try if you try new bid. It doesn't work. You'll know right away right away if you try it you'll know right the way it works Speaking which is the last question for you here went to your your show tonight laughing at I wonder is quicksand on porn or real thing. Quicksand porn is a real thing. I talk about it and my said go right ahead guys look it up and explain it quickly. What it is? It's it's women thinking in quicksand naked and like got real it you on your phone. I know you don't want that on your history. Ha It's real my buddy Bert Kreischer told me about it and I have no shirt. Yeah no way I look it up and it turns out it's real and and here's my whole thing with the quick important. Listen I get it be a freak. Do whatever you WanNa do if it doesn't hurt anybody rain but like some some of these fetishes man like there's other like there's a deep dive into porn hub on like okay.

I sign on and it's like how from the welcome back Brad date. They know me they know me there. There's a lot of stuff on there. Where like I get it if you have a weird fetish that's fine right?

There's movies about girls that sit on balloons in pop them and then guys are really into that. How do you find out like I feel very vanilla when I find out these things are out there?

The district of Maryland were dismissed with prejudice, meaning they can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that Ross engaged in murder-for-hire. This was a serious allegation at roles outbreak, denies it was never prosecuted or ruled on by jury, but was trumpeted by the federal government and the media, as if it were proven fact, the Maryland, court held these indictments for almost five years, poisoning, Ross's case, and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations, as explained in Ross's appeal to the supreme court. The fact that the judge used these allegations to give her all say draconian sentence of double life without parole. Violated his sixth amendment, right to a jury trial. Judges are required to issue sentences based on convictions decided by a jury not unproven allegations.

Free talk live call in talk about whatever's on your mind its lart with you, Jay Angie, eight five, five, four, five zero three seven three three eight fifty five four fifty free. As in freedom. We're talking about this list of ways to live longer and live, better. And we're going to be wrapping it up here in the future. It's it, it seems great seems like good advice and ways to sort of be happier. I advise it. So Angie police continue. There's just a few more of them. One of them says, I eat more fiber says that if you make just one dietary change to boost your longevity. Make it this one. So they're there they buried it here, by the way, it should have been the first one if that's what they're thinking. But I would agree. I used to say this is eight five prunes day, and it'll change your life and it really will like. Things work, better with five prunes day. They're relatively cheap in the store and get them one of the biggest affects our causes of colon cancer. I believe is to fact that there's like this like layer of like this impacted stuff just crap in your battles. That's been there for years in some cases, and like somebody's people go, what is that? They does like their rotor ruder you know, up your backside and they flush everything out. I can't remember what that's called. Well, kind of it is like a form of enema, because like you can see it going in the tube and stuff and, and basically have years ago, one of my friend's fathers had it done. And the nurse said, you know, if you just ate a couple of prunes, every day, you wouldn't have had to come here for this, and they put their pumped like, I don't know eighteen pounds worth of matter, and he felt like. So good like after it. Yeah. Amy felt exhausted. I you know, the next day, but, like sure days. You know, I was in high school and, and, you know, so that guy started with Chiesi and he's actually a really good shape right now. He's in better shape now than he was. You know, back then, you know, he's an sixties now. Yeah. Five or so important. And they tell us what horses and everything to, you know, just horses die. There Dieter mostly fiber us they have to keep it moving through them or they get colic and impacted and all kinds of problems. Well, this has fiber slows the digestion of food, thus keeping insulin levels in check, which in turn reduces inflammation, and some types of fiber for ferment in the body producing short chain fatty acids, which also dampened implem- inflammation. Something else suggests avoid blue lights in the evening really are electric devices played havoc with our delicate. Yes. Thank you, screens produce blue light, which helps wake us up in the morning, but at night, suppresses production of melatonin, the vital sleep inducing, hormone control your exposure by adding time-sensitive filters that block blue light from your laptop. They do actually have those is some, some laptops in some smartphones. We'll have a blue light filter for the device. So I guess that's the idea. I didn't even know why they did it to just look at like this. This doesn't look realistic turned it off. But maybe it's maybe it's time they work, it says to look after your is the best way to protect our eyes is to avoid smoking heap active and eat healthy including food, foods, rich, and macular, pigments, anything bright, yellow orange or green is a rich source says to walk a dog the health benefits of owning a dog or obvious dogs need walking very, your and retain all of which help us age better is a matter of fact, borrow people. Dogs for the purpose of having something to walk in the morning. I if, if I don't have the dog, I'm not going to go on a walk, but the dog gets used to the walk, and then the dog wants the wall, and the dog is so appreciative. A little bit of time. And it's it yeah. It's great. The last one says, cultivate optimism studies have found that older people with a negative attitude to aging have worse functional health slower walking speeds and lower cognitive abilities than those with a more positive attitude. I think everybody knows this is that a good attitude is going to last you longer in life than that. I mean, I know some people in my life who are had this negative attitude, and they're like quality of life. It really sucks compared to like the people who just have good attitudes. I know a handful of these people. I always suggest looking at the glasses half full instead of half empty. Well, that's the there's a lot good to say about it. That's for sure. Let's go to the phones here. We got Dave calling in from poughkeepsie. Dave, you're on free talk live. What's on your mind? Yeah. I just have a quick question for Angie. I I it's I I don't know how how to, you know go asking it. But it's just a question that I've always wanted to. It's just a question that I wanna want like an answer to came. Go ahead. What would be like? No, there's a couple of Chicago. I like right. What, what, what I would sound into creepy ish or, you know, without outstanding to, you know, I, I don't know how to say or whatever, but, like, what would be the best way or like what, how would I approach the question of how to ask a woman as she has hair down there? I would just ask her are you clean shaving? Do you try what you want to know this after I take a peek? I mean really want to get him arrested. So, Dave, I have some ideas, and I'd, I'd like you to consider these perhaps just ask her out for coffee because, you know, if you if you want to know this information, you're probably going to you're going to find it out. At some point if she continues to go to coffee and meals with you and hangs out with you. And that kind of thing, right? Like a woman's not hanging out with you for no reason at all. I got a question for Dave for if she's choosing. Not to hang out with you. There's a reason. So what I would say is don't worry about that. It's a problem that you can saw that can be solved in short order, just don't I worry about that. Because I, I just wanted to say hair down there. All right. I to know. Are they friends of yours? Yeah. There, there's a girl out in California, who I know this girl out in Washington, I know these people on the internet. I actually I'm friends with people on Snapchat. Well, okay, so Dave, let's just say you're getting friendly with a lady, and she's your girlfriend, and you're gonna go explore that region of her body. Would it make a difference if there was hair there or not? Are you going to be like, oh, no, I'm done, or are you going to run away if it's one way or another? I mean, does it really matter? Well, I have hair down there, you know, if it's a clean shaven down there, it's, it's like you know, you know a little weird. Well, what it can look a little weird if it's clean shaven. So I think that the question Dave, this was the question is, is it really going to make a difference? The question is, would you kick her out of bed if for whatever reason she didn't have, you know, the, the proper grooming that you, particularly like going on or lack thereof? I, I mean, does it really matter? It does. Okay. Well, when was the last time you had that opportunity to explore that region from anybody who you didn't have to pay? That can twenty thirteen. It doesn't matter. Thanks for the call. Dave eight five five four five zero three seven three three eight fifty five four fifty free. This is what happens when men don't get physical attention. They begin to obsess on things weirder. And weirder as time goes by ladies. That does not mean you have any kind of obligation. I'm not saying that, that's the case. I'm just saying that there are natural consequence. This is why we need to legalize prostitution because I completely agree. But you know, he could just tell them that he likes the hair down there, if they don't have it, and it grows fairly quick. Yeah. Yeah. It'll be it will be back soon. Don't worry, Dave. Yeah. Not, not an issue, but I don't know. I, I would think. You know, obviously, I know some girls that are friends of mine, I could say something like that, too. But I mean, I, I, I don't even think I'd ask them and it's done by business. I don't really care also married. My wife is another at the notion of me, not to ask them not that I care. But, like, if, if some dude, like I dunno asked my wife, I feel like I, I might be more annoyed than her or like I asked my little sister that, like, if we were somewhere or maybe just some random girl, you know, it's like, come on, man. I mean, you gotta get your head out of the gutter, like better things to focus your attention on in life. Yeah. You just need to talk to you to determine whether they wanna talk to you by talking to them. And let's just steer the conversation to areas of mutual interest, as opposed to, you know what, what's the what type of underwear you wear in t- Bax granny panties, I this, you know, not a pro. Oh, preate conversation. If you want to continue going that direction, you're going to get the worst of. Intr- the worst ladies interested in you. If this is how you're gonna talk to him. He's not alone here because I have had that question asked to me by people that I don't know very well, and I would say that it shocked me but it doesn't really you just kinda take it with a grain of salt. You answer it and you move on. I know you, you can kind of take questions like this pretty well, is what I've noticed is. But I mean, I would call it inappropriate questions. That's how I see it.

A report released Tuesday by physicists at Stanford University revealed that the entire known universe from the whole of human civilization to the totality of matter and energy is actually the fictional setting of a cop show called heart cakes, according to authors of the report existence, as we know it was created solely to provide the framework for the prime time drama that airs weekly in a parallel universe. And at every historical event prior to the show September two thousand eight pilot, including the renaissance World War Two evolution the September eleventh attacks in the presidential administrations of Washington through Clinton, never actually happened and are merely part of the elaborate backstory crafted by hard case creator, and show runner, Dominic Egan. Universe operated under immutable, laws of thermodynamics, gravitational, relativity. But now we know everything Jeff comes from my heart, cadence wealthy staff writers overall, teams like a very well written show, physicists have theorized that the universe as we know it will cease to exist, whenever hard case airs its final episode.

I'm Mike Clifford special counsel, Robert Muller breaks. His silence on the Trump Russia probe. Also on our Thursday, rump down a look at how restorative Justice for juveniles can work better than jail time. Plus senior hunger. A stubborn problem across the nation. First our top story special counsel Robert Muller in his first public statement about his Russia, probe did not exonerate President Trump. It said explaining why his office never considered it dining him for obstruction of Justice CBS news quotes Muller is saying as set forth in the report after the investigation if we had confidence of the president did not clearly commit a crime. We would have said, so the network ads at Moeller also indicated he would decline to testify before congress, although he could still be subject to a congressional subpoena. Muller indicated any testimony. From the office would not go beyond the report, it contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made we chose the words carefully. The work speaks for itself. New Mexico environmentalists say contractors who helped build a nearly mile long wall on private property near the southern border over the weekend should be banned from future business opportunities in the state earlier this week, the mayor of Sunland park, follow the stop work order to halt a private group, from continuing the wall construction citing a lack of proper permits. In addition, the group's eighteen foot steel Bollard wall is taller than city. Ordinances allow, Kevin Bixby with a southwest environmental center believes the group's action showed disrespect for New Mexico and its laws on Italy. I think more than anything. This is a Trump campaign stunt, his supporters want to demonstrate that he's actually making progress in building the wall, the group, which calls itself, we build the wall has. Promised to finish the project, which began building after a federal judge last week issued a preliminary injunction against construction on sections of the proposed wall. I'm Roz Brown, crisco Bach legal adviser for we build the wall told the our Kirke journal that these sullen park project has the blessing of President Donald Trump. And when a juvenile is accused of a crime, making him or her face the victim. Take responsibility and make amends works better than posecutor. End jail time. Suzanne bother has details on the findings of a new report. We Oakland area adopted a restorative Justice approach nine years ago, and in just the first two years, they diverted one hundred two youth from the criminal, Justice system, giving them a second chance to get back on track. Jenna Crassus with the group community works west which administers the program in Alameda County, she notes that kids who took part were almost forty four percent less likely to commit another crime within twelve months showed an eighteen point four percent recidivism rate in Alameda County, where the traditional juvenile legal system, showed a thirty two point one percent recidivism rate with the control group, the process works like this, if the DA and the victim agree, the youth accused of a crime goes through a restorative Justice program and takes responsibility for the crime here. She will often face the victim. Apologize and agree to make amends, perhaps by going through an anger management program paying the victim back in the case of theft. We're performing community service, if successful the charges are dropped. The report also found victims have ninety one percent satisfaction rate with the program, and donate a huge cost savings, for example, the restored of community program in Oakland averaged about forty five hundred dollars a year per case, whereas probation, now meet at Conti costs about twenty three thousand dollars per year in North Carolina. A Mecklenburg county community air pollution monitoring project is highlighting how housing discrimination affects the health of predominantly African American residents for the past three years, people living in Charlotte's West End have been wearing sensors that measure air pollution in real time. They've discovered spikes in air pollution after events such as rush hour. Traffic construction and street. Paving resident Ronald Ross says, historically African American neighborhood. Woods in Charlotte were concentrated on the west side of town, close to railroad lines and factories. Now, these neighborhoods are wedged between major highways and industrial zoning are experiencing actually GOP at heart disease is a lot better pause. The breathing living in areas with poor air quality has been linked to chronic health conditions such as asthma allergies and mental health issues and among pregnant women, birth defects, premature birth and miscarriages, I'm not a Ramleh gone. It is spite of a stronger Konami, the percent of seniors at risk of going hungry remains stubbornly, high Dan Hyman has our report. According to a new report from Feeding America, five and a half million US seniors were food insecure in twenty seventeen and the percentage, who were missing meals has remained near the same level since the start of the great recession any crumble with Feeding America. Carr's says the total number of older folks is rising, but she says, more important may be the fact that many seniors don't benefit from low unemployment. At over at that actor, and if you're not within the labor market, because your senior year retired, you're not gonna get the benefit from that opportunity or the way the group phone nearly eight percent of idiot seniors were food insecure that slightly higher than the national average.

Free talk. Talk. Live. Talk about whatever is on your mind. That's what we do here on free talk live. It's Mark with you. J J, eight five five four five zero three seven three three. It's eight fifty five four fifty free. As in freedom got a story here from reason magazine. Let are Schenectady rights. Well, I'm not gonna read the title just going to start a mom who led her six children, six six children, energy. Awesome. It's amazing woman. Wait ten minutes in the car while she ran into get them muffins at a local Kentucky cafe. Now the impression I get here is this is a cafe in Kentucky. Not that the brand of the cafe is Kentucky. Cafe let Kentucky Fried Chicken, same thing. All right. So she's the focus of an op-ed here and is co authored by the Washington Post, and it says, I can co authored the, the op-ed, perhaps, you can guess what happened, next to the mom because Lenore skin easy, when she doesn't article, she's the what was called the world's worst mom. She's the author of it free range kids, the free range, kids blog, yeah. Some probably drove by and seen that a couple of a handful of kids or in the car, or some busy body called the cops and said the kid. Are left in a car. This is a campaign. So the cops could just be right there. That was true to Kentucky. They don't drink coffee in Kentucky. Yeah. But I mean how dangerous could it have been in the parking lot of this cafe? Well, I don't know. But I had somebody, I think this was. Let me I'm going to tell the story third person executive member who, who said that. That they walked the shopping cart to the cart corral. So what's that three or shopping, four space away, whatever it is? And they come back and somebody's hyperventilating at the window because their babies in the car like she put the baby in the car, put the groceries in the car walked, the cart, the cart corral comes back, and some moms, there or some woman is there. But, you know, every social Justice warrior wants to be a hero. Yeah. So. Perhaps, you can guess what happened next the mum Holly curry. In fact, I'll bet you can though it was sixty seven degrees outside and partly cloudy. And although to statistically safer to let kids wait in the car, then to drag them across a parking lot. Because every once in a while somebody gets run over in a parking lot. Right. Sure. The heart wrenching stories of kids who die in cars, almost always involve children, forgotten there for hours, not kids who've been there for a minute and six of them, sort of, as there's at least one old enough to maybe open a door and ventilate Takhar car, if there was an issue, right? Right. Six of one of them has to build enough. Sure that say how old they are. No, it doesn't. But I mean I doubt very seriously that they're all eighteen months old and six Toplitz or septa puts, I'm sex sex. Yeah, it seems unlikely in that circumstance, but that there's probably an older child. But if a kid's left in a car, even eighteen month old even if a baby is left in a car for three or four minutes. There's nothing to get upset. About now. Not. There's just I do that. Yeah, well, your kid, you're you do have one quite young. I mean you know, and they'll be fine. I can remember my dad specifically said that he was going to have a mechanic set up the truck, so he could lock us in the truck. You know, we're kids. Well, I've met your brothers and you guys probably deserved it. Let's go. Let's see. Let's see. It's involved children who are forgotten in there for hours. Not simply waiting out an Aaron curry found herself in trouble. With the police, here's this is quoted when she came out less than ten minutes later. Two officers rebuked curry for leaving her kids in the car. They told her she wasn't being arrested just detained ally. Hold on. That doesn't even make any sense. A detention comes because you are either determining whether you should arrest somebody or shouldn't once you've determined that there is no arrest offense than it attention isn't in line because detention requires reasonable articulate suspicion that a crime has been committed on arrest comes because the crime has been committed, so that doesn't make any sense. She started to cry and asked permission to call her husband just cya that request was denied. I would've just done it. Yeah, no one asked to see the kids who are still waiting in the car, right? Like if the problem was the kids being in the car without an adult being in the car, right? Okay. Children in the car. The doors are closed at adult isn't in the car. If adult is in the car, and the doors are closed. Everything's fine. But, you know, the cops are keeping her from getting in the car. The officers told curry that, well they were not charging her with any crime. They're going to file a J C three form the hotline type alert to the Kentucky child protective system. This poor lady, they're going to be, so in her business over this is, is the police department or the officer's name in his article by any chance because I think the listeners need that I don't see it right now. Now. I didn't I didn't dig that deep. To me, this could happen from any cop shirt. This is in. I really believe this is most cops doing this. Because. See the thing is, is that we're all so busy. If you go, you know, you're going past a car and you see a dog or a kid in a car, and it's eighty five degrees out ninety degrees out ninety five degrees out and you come back out ten minutes later in the in they're still in the car, then you might start paying attention to the, the list, the temperature the less, you're going to pay attention. I certainly don't want to see any kids. I witnessed one of these incidents Foxwood casino years ago. There was a couple of Asian babies in car seats in an SUV at about four o'clock in the morning, we stopped in there was my dad and I to go meet somebody, and we were coming through with horses, and we went in there and got a couple of I got some breakfast and came back, and we told the security guard and away in. Hey, this car pointed out to him blow a blah came back through car was still there, and it was daylight, now it was getting pretty warm, and it was all kinds of station on inside my. Father actually went and grabbed a tool out of the truck. I remember maybe even a hammer and popped one in the windows set to car alarm off everybody shows up security shows up, and they call the paramedics on one of the kids was seriously. Dehydrated wasn't conscious. There is a big deal. They had us like fill out police reports and all that crap. But the and from what we understand. I mean, those people accordance of had pulled in near like five or six hours before my dad, and I even walked by, and just, you know, two kids in there, and I can see, you know, a kid sleeping in a car, you're going to have to go check on them or whatever. But we, you know if I if my son was sleeping in the car, we left him in, we pulled them in pulled into the garage and rolled down the windows and left him in the car until he got up. He would often be pretty cranky about it. He didn't like sleeping car, but they'll asleep there, buddy. What do you want me to this was like, July, and it was like eighty four o'clock in the morning was really hot? Yeah. That's not good. And again, you have to use a certain amount of discretion but. The problem is, is that people don't have discretion. Now, it's come to the point where if you leave a living thing in a car, then you have sentenced to death. Even if you're just walking in to get a Cup of coffee and you're going to be back out in a minute. But if you're a truck driver in New York state, and you let that truck idle for more than five minutes, even though it's a hundred and four degrees out, and you're trying to sleep because you've been driving for your twelve hours unless you have a dog in the truck. But if you don't have a dog, you're getting a ticket for idling, and it doesn't matter. Right. This is a New York state is because I used to sleep in New York. And yeah I know my truck with air conditioning on, and I had my pug with me, and it Koppel's like oh, you got a dog and didn't know that. You're okay. And I was like, hold on. And he's like, Yep. He goes unless unless you have like some handicapper or or he went through the whole list, and one of them was a pet or livestock, or there's always exceptions. But basically just because you're a truck driver trying to sleep in a parking lot noontime, and you've got to pull over and go to sleep because you wake to long time to get a pet mouse at the local pet store. Yeah. Hey, that'll that'll take care of that problem going on here, the next day, a child protective services. Investigators showed up the venture -ly with the deputy sheriff's deputy all this is laid out in a lawsuit. The Curry's are now pursuing and this story goes on, and it is amazing.

Get some muffins for the kids and her, I presume, at a coffee shop and tyranny ensues. Right. The cops come than the cops file of form with the excuse me, Kentucky child protection system and the child protective services. Investigators shows up with a deputy sheriff, the tooth authorities insisted on entering Holly's home though they had no warrant warning her that if she stood her constitutional ground and forbade them in. Entry they would return and take her kids, the lawsuit alleges curry, let them in once inside. I'll tell you that in a second, and this is the trick because they don't have the right to come in the house, but they have the power to take your children. And what do you do in a circumstance like that, when they threaten, and they mean it, you're, you're gonna let us in? We're going to take your kids away from you. Now power. I think you've gotta stand your ground. I would be terrified and. I mean, this is this is an abuse of power under the color of law. But do I want have my kid taken from me for weeks months, while I fight it? I don't get still take on its you let them in. And they say one thing that they could still say, oh, we're taking your kids Carlos Morales. I think twice as Dame he wrote the book, do you recall a book about, but he used to child protective services, and it was something that the book is something to do about it, the case against child protective services and one of the things he said, was is that, like if you have thirty dishes, they'll, they'll do this as, like a, a check, Mark. And if you get a couple of check marks or something, you know, you could have like dirty dishes, the trash can little overfull and some dirty laundry somewhere, like in the house, and that would be grounds in California from take the kids, and he also talks about how it's a huge financial incentive for the for the state to be to have custody of your. Through CPS via in injections of money from the federal government and just how they build bureaucracy. And, you know, the police are there to help Bill Burr, bureaucracy, and make sure you pay taxes, as far as I'm concerned. So let's see once inside the woman from CPS question curry about her home life carry answered fully the lawsuit said, worried that any refusal would add to her payroll, the investigator insisted on taking the younger child from Curry's lap and without permission began to undress her in the presence of the male deputy in the presence of the male deputy the investigator proceeded to undress the child mail each child, male and female down to their genitals, removing the diapers of the two youngest curry tried to object. But she knew she was powerless to stop the investigator from doing full-body investigation inspections here. The last to be undressed was her four year old son taught by his pediatrician that he should never let a stranger take his clothes off without his mom's, okay? But when the boy, tried to make eye contact with Carey the investigators stood directly in his line of sight, leaving him helpless, then the investigator pointed to the deputy and said show that copier muscles little boy, removed his shirt and. Flexed his biceps as ordered the investigator. I don't even know if my son would know what to do. If you said show, your muscles. The investigator integrity began laughing, while the investigators started to pull down his pants when the little boy finally was able to look back at his mother, she was holding back tears. Little boy's face registered. Shame and fear. I got cold chills, when you said that they took that child from her and started taking the diaper off of that. There is no way that they would have taken my child from me, and they, I would have gone to jail, they would have beaten me to a pulp and taking me downtown. So these like we're nothing but mammals, and when you're talking about that relationship between parents and their children, and I mean this, it just shows that the society has gone beyond civilized, and beyond domesticated to cowherd. When you can go into demand demand to walk into a person's house and strip their children down. Down to their clothes. Shame and humiliate, those children in front of their parents show. The, those children, their parents are powerless to protect them from the state and we do nothing. I think I don't think there's, like I think that Holly, I understand the situation hollies in and I get it. But at the same time, this is this is commentary on our society, and what has happened. Ladies and gentlemen. Call me right now and tell me we don't live in a police state. The I remember listening when it was rolling down the road and like the nineteen ninety s maybe early outs and here in somebody on the radio on a talk show saying we live in a police state, and I laughed, I thought, well, this is a ridiculous thing to say after you've heard this story about what happened to this woman and about how her children were stripped in front of her, and how she could do nothing. How her young son at four years, old was, I don't know what else to call us a sex crime was perpetrated against him. So lately now, whether I mean maybe wasn't touched in those plays. Necessarily. But the shame he experienced that the fear that a sex crime victim experiences. He doesn't understand this. That's what he experienced house. He could feel about cops from here on out. Is it going to be officer friendly, or is it going to be something out else? Police state prove me. Wrong, eight five five four five zero three seven three three.

But right now, what I want to talk about is this story from reason dot com, where a mother of six children, left them in, I presume minivan McCain, imagine any other vehicle, they could possibly have been in to get some muffins. She said she was gone ten minutes. The cops called CPS child protective services on them. CPS shows up at the house with the sheriff, and they proceed to strip all the kids naked and check their parts now. I really this has to do with muffins. I don't know. I really hope that this that, you know, this. There's the lawsuit is successful on the Bush isn't really going to fix anything because it's just, you know, some bonding company, you know, you know. You know, just forking out money and then the insurance rate goes up for the tax payers, as really all equivalence to. I mean these this family deserves money, but the taxpayers largely don't pay attention and don't care what their government does, and these parasites that, you know, working for CPS they need to be disciplined, very harshly, because they're just, you know, you surfers of power and these articles come up all the time. Sure. All you watch read the blogs, I'm only reading this one because it's to me, I mean, you know, as jaded as I am after I don't even know how many years here on free talk live two thousand and two that Well, I, I was I was amazed at this, this line.

We've used them here on free talk live too much success, crypto currency, wire. Dot com. Let's go to Mike Cullen from Toledo. Mike, you're on free talk live. What's on your mind? Thank you for taking my call. I think what we're talking about is being a responsible adult your words were she walked in for ten minutes, and maybe got a coffee or a buffing or something like that. She got the muffins for the kids, putting the story. Oh, that's good. That's good. Well, at least the kids were, you know, we'll be hungry. I think if she returned to the vehicle. And one of the kids was gone and four days later, they found him in a ditch dead. She think, man, that ten minutes, I might not have. Done that, and everything would have been fine. I just think with kids nowadays. I mean not nowadays, but being an adult in making sure the children are safe. I mean, let's say there's a kid that sixteen in the car, and he's like, hey, the kids, are you know what? My brothers and sisters are getting warm. Let's roll the windows down. Get a little fresh air going on went into get some muffins for us. And someone reaches in and don't say this don't happen because it does. Snatch is one of the kids, but, you know, like crime happened far more often to kids in the past, I mean, the crimes against children, perpetrated by adults who may don't know happens far less often than it did, even when I was a kid, but this wouldn't have been an issue when I was a child. How about you? Well, I'm fifty. So I really I mean you're, you're, you're someone that you're saying is pretty true. I mean it, it did, you know, like seat belts, and all that stuff back when I was a child, you know, that didn't really matter. But no, I see where the hyper. Awareness or whatever comes in. I get it if you walk into pay for your gasoline, and the kids are in the car there with an eye shot there within. I mean when I had my child, I, I was so. Just over overwhelmed by being a parent. There's no way I would have walked into a Donut shop or a Muffin shop, or a pizza shop or whatever you wanna call it for five minutes. More or less ten come out or Mike kid sixteen comes running into the Muffin shop and says, hey mom, great idea to get some food, but junior just got snatched out of the car, Mike. I think you're. Thank you. I mean you sound like a crazy person. I you know, the, the likely handle I could happen. Right. But if a sixteen year old can't stop somebody from kidnapping the kid out of the car, then how his mom going to do it. How in the world would a sixteen year old stop a fifty year old man fine. How is 'cause one good crack of how women going to do it? She can obviously stop the person by screaming and yelling. On a phone and actually put the car in the car and drive and leave. Children. I mean, we can go through a thousand scenarios, but. Scenarios put out by fearmongers. And the fact is that they're highly unlikely to happen. But what did happen here was a bunch of law enforcement officers came to this lady's house, and sexually molested her children. What do you think about that? Well, I think we would have seen cops sexually X sexually having sex with children, no LA at what they didn't have sex with children. They strip the kids down in front of the lady, including the Solta, but. Yes, you said, everybody's over the top and getting a little testy, a little crazy. I think we're doing the same thing with this, this sexually molest dating or sexually abused. To take a four year olds pants down, while you're chuckling in front of his mom when his mom doesn't want you to. I would not think that that's appropriate though. Sounds like what they did me. You're selling it to me and everybody else. It's listening as the cops came to the door and says Highness's Jones step out of the way before I crack you in the head with no life. Oh, actually, what I said. I said, take no diaper like listen to me, I'm gonna I'm gonna go make your children. Make put you on hold here for a second, Mike. What they said, in fact, was you can't if you ask, if you try to use your constitutional right to demand a warrant, we're gonna come back and take your kids, at least according to the lawsuit, Mike, so. No. They didn't say that. They were gonna crack in the head with a rifle what they said they were going to do is do something worse. I would rather get cracked in the head with a rifle that had my children's stolen from me. Mike in. I got a question for you. Yeah, I, I mean, you know, the story here you didn't. I'm sure you know, the details, what would be the reason and let me finish. What would be the reason for a police officer to come in a home and say, we got to take the diaper off this kid and see his penis or vagina because that's just a safety thing. We do now, I think don't happen. Is it has to be abuse something? I mean obv-. Obviously, when children are abused. We'll all I can do is read the story that all I can do is read the story. But I do know that people with power tin over tend to abuse, it, people that are irrespon- with you. Yeah. People queue. Yeah. Although I. I agree with you one hundred percent. I just think there's more you read the story. I just it's hard for me inside of hearing think. Mike, it's, it's hard for me to sit here and think the cops just came to the door and said, excuse me, but seem over here to talk. Warm, but we're going to kick your door open, and take your kid's diapers off to see their genital. The reason on are giving the, the dispensation to the cops on this, instead, the woman what you're already saying is that she could have had her children stolen away from her on one hand, but on the other hand, you like this could never possibly happen. This is ridiculous. These are our boys in blue. Well, I'm sorry to tell you know this hip, I agree with you. I, I understand what you're saying about the boys in blue. Because as a matter of fact, I've been federal firearms dealer for twenty eight years, and I've dealt with many, many, many police officers, and I would say, at least seventy five of them. Thursday when the stuff that they're supposed to be stopping. So I'm not a wacko just calling to argue with you. It's just I'm thinking to myself lead a minute. I'm not saying that all cats are good on the country. Percent of them are doing. To the protection of life, liberty and properties with Free State price about. But it's it's an effort to move twenty thousand people who understand it's about demonstrating to the entire country. Yeah. We can have a free market, a truly fee market, making it just a great place to live. It's the world's largest while interests libertarian community, and it's only getting bigger, that's amazing to be able to move to other people passionately believe in being free. And independent, what the Free State project is managing to do is to put their money where their mouth physically getting up across the country and saying, let's go someplace, and let's demonstrate the power of these ideas.

Number's eight five five four five zero three seven three three it's eight fifty five four fifty free as in freedom. And we're talking about this story where this mom, and like the last caller alleges that some of the facts of the story may not be true. And this is my experience. With new stories. I've had multiple new stories happen about me and about things that I know intimately, right? We're newsmakers here on free talk live will be for better for worse. And so I've had these stories, not one of them has ever been factually. True completely now that doesn't mean that most of it wasn't true or part of it wasn't true or some perception of the facts might have been true or whatever. But none of them gets every fact, right? Completely. So I concur with the caller that not every fact in the story is true, just because that's my belief is. But I don't know. What happened? All I can do is deal with the story as it's written, and I believe it, it doesn't surprise me at all that a CPS worker goes to this woman's house, because she left her kids in a car for ten minutes to get some muffins for her, and the kids, and I presume some coffee coffee wasn't mentioned, and that the CPS worker comes and feels like she's for one, they tell her that to get that they have to let her in her in the deputy sheriff have to be let in, and if they're not they're gonna come back and take their kids away. I don't doubt that for a second. That sounds like standard run of the mill stuff to me. And I, I really feel you should call them on their bluff, because they are coming in. They're just trying to find any nonsense reason to gather evidence to use against you. I would just say, come back with a warrant and closed the door. Well, I think that, that could have better and could have worse results. I don't know everybody. They made the threat. I know that let's stick the CPS into their house. I have a friend has happened to about a year ago, I said, do not let them in a house. You tell them to leave actually had two friends one friend. It was all up on it. She's really good. And she wouldn't let him in. She never heard from him again. The father of the child. They were divorced. The father of the child had gotten a DUI too kid in a car, and CPS showed up to do a checkup. And they said, you have to let us in and she said, no, you need to come back with a warrant, and if you come back here again and harass me, again, I'm going to be suing, you charge fifty thousand dollars an hour to deal with you guys. Don't want deal with you guys. And they left her alone. The other people just complied in the stuff, just piled on stuff piled on the stuff piled on, and it turned into, like lawyers, getting involved, all kinds of aggravated, the kids grades went to hell in school, and he's good kid. Exactly. Two kids and then the second one would they came in it was over somebody who was basically mad at the father over a car. He had sold them. That was not a good car. It was just people retaliating. And that's what a lot of the CPS stuff is, is like the McCarthyism back in the day when they were saying, hey, my neighbor is a communist. Well, now you gotta say is, hey, my neighbors, molested his kids and CPS is going to go there and harass the hell out of those people, whether it happened or not. Right. And so in this case, there was no evidence, presented in this story that none that this woman would have that's might have been the situation. Now they could have they basically got permission from this lady by cowing her into submission. But. You know, I, I see no reason at this point to disbelieve. What, what she says she has a lawsuit, by the way, I never got to this. And it's worth pointing out the local, Kentucky lawyers, and the national home school, legal defense association are council on the case. Nice these aren't the sort of people. The home school legal defense association, isn't the sort of people to take a case, if they think that you're, you know, you're right. If you're gonna make, I don't want their association looking like they're representing deadbeats, right? And people who you know, and all that sort of thing. I do. You know, I mean CPS works with molesters all the time if you work for with molesters day, in and day out pretty soon. You think everybody's a molester? Sure that's just how things go and I mean, you know, the CPS worker did what she was supposed to do. She managed to determine whether or not this family was molesting their kids, even though the reason was because of some office. She did what her job was her job is to determine whether or not bad things are going on in the house. Her job is to get kids in state custody. That's what her job is her job is grope 'Eurocracy and is to same. I have a good friend of the family that was a Massachusetts CPS, and this, what she constantly said, they just want to have Philip more foster homes, and want to get more kids in the system that is the agenda. Let's go to the, the discord lines and. Talk to Luke, Luke, you're on free talk live. Can you hear me now? How about now? Let's turn this thing up. Look. Well, there you go. Eight five five four five zero three seven three three it's eight fifty five four fifty free about two weeks later. Holly, that's the mother found was found not guilty of child neglect, but why did a Muffin shop? Stop in with a strip search at all. How dare the authorities not only second guess a mom's very safe decision, but take their investigations so far beyond the bounds of common sense. Indecency. That's what motivated the Curry's to file their federal. Civil rights lawsuit. The challenges the entry into their home under coercion, the seizure, the children inside the home and the strip searches eurocrats are known for not having any common sense whatsoever. I mean this should become a knowledge now. Well, I think that like when, in dealing with a CPS work right in dealing with weirdos and freaks day in and day out that. It's, it's reasonable for a person to come to the conclusion that everybody's a weirdo in a freak. That's why we need constitutional bounds on these people. Because the rest of us aren't living in this world, and we don't deserve this storm trooper tactic where. Tuk tuk, tuk, tuk, tuk, tuk tuk, you'll put up or we're going to come. We're gonna come back and take your children away from you. I mean, what kind of to take say, it says this, and the thing is constitutional bounds. I mean. When you're dealing with CPS generally for as they don't recognize a constitution. This constitution doesn't apply to these agencies. These agencies are, you know, they're, they're municipal corporations that call themselves governmental agencies. This is the same throughout the entire United States. Government is essentially just not living is these is he's charities. And there's a really good court case. In Massachusetts went before the supreme judicial court, if you Google Jack Collins, Massachusetts. I can't remember the the state police. Massachusetts civil rights thing there. I can't remember ACLU ACLU. That's right. They. Yeah. The mass ACLU sued the Massachusetts state, police Jack Collins was a lawyer for the Massachusetts state police, and they did not have to follow the constitution because a Massachusetts state police are made up of law enforcement councils. And he's law enforcement councils are charitable organizations there. They file their taxes with the IRS as a charity, and they are registered as a charity and a supreme court in Massachusetts said that the Massachusetts law enforcement councils are charities and not required to answer public records request because they are not part of the government. They are governmental agencies a suffix on the end of the word the suffix AL on end of Ord made similar to her like they are not governments. And this is the same thing with child protective services. The constitution doesn't even hardly matter anymore because 'cause nobody's being belligerent about it. Nobody is is, is is bringing up constitution. And this is why you have to sue these people in his agency's individually, and they do not have sovereign immunity, because they are not constitutional agencies. So the Lord's crazy, the author says here if they win it'll reinforce what should be a given parents deserve the right to make seat of the pants decisions that do not put their kids in any real obvious and statistically likely danger waiting ten minutes for muffins falls into the no real danger category. And I, I would agree if you take all your kids into the Muffin shop a gas leak in the Muffin shop causes the whole thing to blow up. Are you then a terrible parent for taking your kids into the Muffin shop rather than leaving them out in the car and even just hiking six kids through a parking lot? It's dangerous more dangerous more dangerous than I'm not saying dangerous. It is not dangerous to walk six kids through a parking lot. However, it is more dangerous to walk them through the parking lot, that it is to leave them in the vehicle. And that's what we're talking about. Here is people need to be able to make decisions about their kids. I realize sometime in the relatively near future, the government's going to take all the kids and raise them in the link baiters. And you know, they're gonna get no real human contact. And we're going to have generation upon generation of psychopaths. I get it. I've read brave new world. I understand. But for today, we don't want that today. What we don't need is governmental employees coming into people's houses, breaking the constitution and stripping their kids naked. I wonder how many rape kits in this particular town or county or whatever they call themselves are sitting on a shelf and haven't been tested yet from what I understand.

Public service daily use gas for Thursday may thirtieth twenty nineteen. I'm Mike Clifford special counsel, Robert Muller breaks. His silence on the Trump Russia probe. Also on our Thursday, rump down a look at how restorative Justice for juveniles can work better than jail time. Plus senior hunger. A stubborn problem across the nation. First our top story special counsel Robert Muller in his first public statement about his Russia, probe did not exonerate President Trump. It said explaining why his office never considered it dieting him for obstruction of Justice, CBS news, quote smaller is saying as set forth in the report after the investigation if we had confidence that the president did not clearly commit a crime. We would have said, so the network ads at Moeller also indicated he would decline to testify before congress, although he could still be subject to a congressional subpoena. Muller indicated. Any testimony from the office would not go beyond the report, it contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made we chose the words carefully. The work speaks for itself. New Mexico environmentalists say contractors who helped build a nearly mile long wall on private property near the southern border over the weekend should be banned from future business opportunities in the state earlier this week, the mayor of Sunland park, foll-, the stop work order to halt, a private group, from continuing the wall construction citing a lack of proper permits. In addition, the group's eighteen foot steel Bollard wall is taller than city. Ordinances allow, Kevin Bixby with a southwest environmental center believes the group's action showed disrespect for New Mexico and it's laws. Honestly, I think more than anything. This is a Trump campaign stunt, his supporters want to demonstrate that he's actually making progress in building the wall, the group, which calls itself, we build. The wall has promised to finish the project, which began building after a federal judge last week issued a preliminary injunction against construction on sections of the proposed wall. I'm Roz Brown. Crisco BAC legal adviser for we build the wall told the Albuquerque journal that the sullen pork project has the blessing of President Donald Trump. And when a juvenile is accused of a crime, making him or her face the victim. Take responsibility and make amends works better than posecutor. End jail time. Suzanne bother has details on the findings of a new report. The Oakland area adopted a restorative Justice approach nine years ago, and in just the first two years, they diverted one hundred two youth from the criminal, Justice system, giving them a second chance to get back on track. Jenna Crassus with the group community works west which administers the program in Alameda County, she notes that kids who took part were almost forty four percent less likely to commit another crime within twelve months showed an eighteen point four percent recidivism rate in Alameda County, where the traditional juvenile legal system, showed a thirty two point one percent recidivism rate with the control group, the process works like this, if the DA and the victim agree, the youth accused of a crime goes through a restorative Justice program and takes responsibility for the crime here. She will often face the victim. Agree to make amends, perhaps by going through an anger management program paying the victim back in the case of theft. We're performing community service, if successful the charges are dropped. The report also found victims have a ninety one percent satisfaction rate with the program, and donate a huge cost savings, for example, the restorative community program on Oakland averaged about forty five hundred dollars a year per case, whereas probation, now meet at Conti costs about twenty three thousand dollars per year in North Carolina. A Mecklenburg county community air pollution monitoring project is highlighting how housing discrimination affects the health of predominantly African American residents for the past three years, people living in Charlotte's West End have been wearing sensors that measure air pollution in real time. They've discovered spikes in air pollution after events such as rush hour. Traffic construction and street, paving resident Ronald Ross says historically African American neighborhoods. En- Charlotte were concentrated on the west side of town, close to railroad lines and factories. Now, these neighborhoods are wedged between major highways and industrial zoning opportunities are experiencing. Excellent seal PD, asthma heart diseases and so forth. And a lot of bad is pause to their breathing leaving in areas with poor air quality has been linked to chronic health conditions such as asthma allergies and mental health issues and among pregnant women birth defects, premature births and miscarriages. I'm not a Ramleh gone. It is spite of a store, Konomi the percent of seniors at risk of going hungry remains stubbornly, high Dan Hyman has our report. According to a new report from Feeding America, five and a half million US seniors were food insecure in twenty seventeen and the percentage, who were missing meals has remained near the same level since the start of the great recession any crumble with feeding America's says the total number of older folks is rising, but she says, more important may be the fact that many seniors don't benefit from low unemployment who better because they're able to get back to work. And if you're not within the labour market, because you were a senior near retired. You're not gonna get to benefit from that opportunity for the way. The group found nearly eight percent of Indiana seniors were food insecure that slightly higher than the national average. I might Clifford for public news service, we are member illicit supported, and you'll find us online at public, do service dot ORG. Talk live call in talk about whatever's on your mind. That's Mark with you. J N G has stepped away. She has to take a flight early in the morning. So she had to leave a little early and Jay, we were just talking about a situation crazy situation where a mom left her six kids in the car, I presume that car van to get some muffins at a coffee shop. And she comes back the cops there. The cops file CPS thing against her. The CPS sheriff come to a house. They say that, if you don't let us in, we're gonna come back with the warrant, and we're gonna take your kids, and she lets them come in, and then the worker proceeds to disrobe some of her children. I don't know if all of them, including a four year old who she said, looked scared and ashamed after all this occurred. And it's it's scary. What do you think about custody in that way? But this sort of thing cannot only happen to your children, it can happen to you. So I the story isn't really recent it's from last year, but I've been holding it because I was kinda waiting for the right time to talk about it. And here it is coming from FOX four news. This is the local affiliate down in call your county, which is where Naples is. I believe a woman is taking action after becoming the victim of Bogan bogus guardianship case. Have you heard guardianship stuff j? I mean, this guardianship over kids, like, Nope. Not know then. Well, I'll read a little bit about it then. I'll explain. Okay. So Karen, federal rebe, he sorry, Karen received knock at her door in January, twenty sixteen from a court appointed attorney and sheriff's deputy, I'm told. That I'm aware of the state. The guardianship case normally involves relative asking a court to be given decision making rights over another relatives estate if that person can no longer make decisions for themselves. So if one of your parents is become demented, and needs help and a lot of times when people are dealing with dementia. They're not all they're making the best decisions, and sometimes it Middel courts have to step in and do what you're talking about now, I have a friend who recently had to go through this with his father because it's very bad dimension, Alzheimer's. Right. And what happens is that sometimes? And it's not as uncommon as you might think people who are completely capable of taking care of themselves completely in control of their faculties are swept up into this, because, in many cases, you're. Not invited to the hearing. You never get a chance to present your side of the story, the judge never even asks, because most of the time when they're dealing with this. It's just easier to write the paperwork. Yeah, whatever go take care of, you know, obviously, they need, hey, the help, right? Because otherwise why would somebody be there helping I would say all US citizens are actually property of the state is a federal court. There's a supreme court ruling on FOX steel versus wheeling steel, it's been a seventies. But, you know, US citizens a second class citizen. The US citizen was specifically created by an act of the constitution the fourteenth amendment. We had your first class citizens. I your state citizens is why I claim to be a New Hampshire in not an American United States citizen, New Hampshire's my nation. I am a citizen of the New Hampshire nation. Not the state of New Hampshire, not the United States. Well, just to be clear. I mean if that's the first class citizenship in Beauce, citizenship is a second class citizenship. This is about ninth questions ship. Right. So these people have. No rights second-class citizens are slaves. As far as federation says a jealous relative filed guardianship against her the court deemed her incapacitated to handle her finances. Even though her isn't anything wrong with her the legal proceedings drained, Karen of all of her finances, desperate. She moved away. I finally escaped November of twenty sixteen so this happened in January of two thousand sixteen and by nearly a year by November philanthropist, all my story on the internet story internet, it says and wired me, some money Karen returned to call your county trying to get some Justice of her own. My nursing career ended. My character. Totally assassinated. Another Collier county woman. Peggy depre- is suing the county as well. And she didn't lose her state. She lost her son. She claims her son was treated by Dr without her knowledge when Peggy. Alerted authorities. She lost custody Ariss sun, though, Karen and Peggy's cases are different. They're joining forces to try and stop what they say is a broken and corrupt system is not just about the money. It's about exposing, how corrupt these guardians ships are, and how it exposes the vulnerable and the week. Karen says that she has another lawsuit pending in Chicago against the relatives who sued to get control of her inheritance in the first place. So what happens here is, and this can happen often happens to people over the sixty five. Right. And this can only happen because government provides a system for it to happen. Yes. This kind of stuff could not happen without the organized crime, racket calling itself government. Right. That much is absolutely true. They use a system, which makes some sense. I'm not saying it doesn't make any sense. It's just that I have abused in some cases and that needs to be pointed out, and it's very important to point it out. So as we get older. At some point we're gonna reach a reach a point when we're no longer able to take care of ourselves, or we're going to be dead. One of those two things is going to occur and it happens for different people at different ages. I'm sure call your county, Florida deals with this far more often than your average county. Yeah. You got a lot of retirees out air kids, probably aren't around or they might not have kids. Right. So the judges are probably just going through and rubber-stamping these things, and that's going to necessarily have a consequence, just rubber-stamping stuff. So if for instance, Jay, I was to say that you're incapable of taking care of yourself and. We need you need a court appointed guardian will the guardians are able to Bill, your a state for everything that they do. All right. It's just like when it put the people in nursing home in ninety thousand dollars. I'd of a woman, I know ninety ninety two grand in, like four months. That's what her life savings was ninety two thousand dollars eighty eight year old lady, and they wiped out our Bank account and four months, the nursing home. And, and then they kicked her out Senator of the poor home in Medicare kicked in I happened, but yeah, right. And that's the that's the whole scam is that any money you have saved up, and you finally end up in a place where they take care of folks like this, and this kind of scam happens. I've ever happens in the corporate world happens in a private world. An example, happens in the corporate world is like this happened to toys R us corporation, some echo equity firm acquires toys R us. And the way they literally looted toys a Russ was, which wasn't doing, great anyways, but had a lot of assets. And. All kinds of things is private equity firm own some kind of lawyering company law firm. I don't the heck it was called. But they would do it ministry of work and legal things. Hey, just star billing the heck at a, you know, toys R us till there's nothing left. They sucked up the pensions. They liquidate all the assets, and it was like, you know, they buy the slice and dice, these know pretty stable asset rich companies, and take pensions and everything. And this is nothing. Could not happen, without lawyers and government, legalized plunder. Yes. And that's one hundred percent what it is. And there are been story after story Don about these people who do this for a living. And they I'm sure many of them are, are, are fine folks, or whatever, and all of them, but I know that some of them are bilking people there's some federal investigation going on now. Actually, I call her called in about let that guy called them angry from era. Zona he called he could fill in a little bit Arizona New Mexico. I forget his name Dave, and I heard about this elsewhere in a few different things where these the probate judge are basically, you know, going through these probate things in their finding where this guy dies isn't really any immediate relatives. And the raising Boston is because his one dude had like a this, judge got busted. One dude, had a nephew or something that was wasn't in a country or remember details. But basically this the there was an error. There was an error, and he's judges had literally like stole the estate, and they were able to assign the estate to themselves somehow to know all about it. But like this happens way too often. Right. And it's I mean you know, ladies and gentlemen, you are not immune from this sort of thing occurring, this, this, this court case in two thousand sixteen that this lady was dealing with this relative. That was angry that she got an inheritance that the relative didn't get. And the money's probably already spent. She's trying to get back eight five five four five zero three seven three three. It's eight fifty five four fifty free talk live. Would you like to hang out with pen Gillette keynoting freedom fest this year? I for one in thrilled.

Let's go to Bob calling him from Chattanooga Tennessee, Bob. You're on free talk live. Yes, sir. I wanted to take about the scam the government for on me and my life. Okay. Why seventy four years old, sixty nine she is a riddle diabetic which names she's very, very sick. She ran out of rehab days and so she's gotta stay out of the hospital, sixty days in order to reset her rehab days. She can't do it to maybe two to three weeks. Four should go out of the hospital. The solution from the government is us go into choices program when when you go into the choices program. We'll take care of her. But when you die, your house goes do the good of really in. Yes, sir. It's called the choices program. You look it up. You have to sign everything that when you go on Medicaid that I could see in my house as long as I'm alive. But as soon as I die then takes my house, and they sell it much Hilden get method. See wrote nocco because they're going to they're going to screw me into the ground. This is clearly a crazy system and I'm not trying to defend at all. Here's where my mind goes first. Bob. Is it possible to give to do a quick claim deed? I quick claim your kid onto the house, and then quick claim yourself off of the house. Basically give your house to your kit. Have a contract with them. That says, hey, we can say we can stay in our houses, long as we want. And then after that, you guys do what you want with it, but then already figured that out, sir. They'll go back five years, and the peop- done that list and five years, then you committed fraud. I say, yeah, I. Another thing is really getting popular as reverse mortgages. Yep. There's a fella. I buy hey, from, and he has been telling me that they keep on sweetening the pot on his New York home and farm, and is farm is very valuable to develop where it is. And they, they're offering all kinds of money on his reverse mortgage thing and his health, isn't that good. I mean he doesn't. I don't even think he's gonna make. Hey this year. He's pretty old. He's eighty nine years old. And he just can't do things and he's all. Yeah. The Bank wants to buy it, and I'm like, why you got a mortgage on. He goes. No. But I keep on getting user first mortgage calls where they're going to give me a couple thousand dollars a month for the rest of my life. And he's like I could be gone tomorrow, and he's got one kid and two grandchildren. And he's just but I've been hearing this for a few years now to reverse mortgage thing is sounds kinda similar to what they're talking about. So and. Bob's Choi situation here, it's either suffer and his wife suffers knuckles rehab, or sign over your house. Sounds like Bob. What about what about this thing about one more, let the shoot down this idea, see if he can? So there's things called a home equity lines and you can get the basically they'll give you a loan for the value of your house. Now, this isn't as good as turning over to your relatives or whatever. But then you can get the value out of the house in dollars now and then the government can take it from me later. And it'll still, you know, the, the note will still be on it. So you can have the cash and be able to pay your expenses or whatever, but the government really can't take it from you. If it's in cash. How's that? That's an option. Really appreciate that sir, and one on the reverse mortgage. What if that guy dies, he's signs the papers, and then he does the next day, his family gets nothing? Basically, these reverse mortgages don't seem like a good. Yeah. They don't seem like a good idea to me at all. I'm sure that there's somebody out there somewhere where this is the right move for them. But I would think ladies and gentlemen, of America, would think long and hard before I signed up for verse mortgage, and Bob with your wife's rehab. I don't know how in depth it is if I mean is does it require like you know being in a hot tub doing certain exercises and stretches? You might be able to find someone who is in this business, who's does some certified, nurses, assistant or some physical therapy. I don't know what part of the country, you're in, if there's like any of these people are Craigslist, to like help out this, but I dated a girl for years ago. And she was a CNA, and she put a did some advertising for in home care, and she would help take care of folks. And she still does this I from what I understand. If she charges like I don't know, twenty one dollars an hour, I think as what she was doing back then. But if you hired a firm, it will cost you forty five dollars an hour, basically. And they would pay you know, pay to nurse twelve bucks an hour. So there are options. I don't know if you need special equipment, but if you need like, if part of like my grandmother's physical therapy to rehabilitate, her hip, or knee required her to do these stretches in a hot tub, and she had to go, you know, to this, because I used to, I brought her there several times in the nurses would like stretcher, and manipulate her body, certain ways for, you know, part of the rehab, so, you know, do little investigation of what you need. You might be able to source it with cash and I mean maybe a by a hot tub. I don't know what, what you need for implements, but the stuff is out there and, and we anybody creative and get some things done. Can I ask you one more question? 'cause I feel I'm more libertarian than Republican, okay? How does the libertarians feel about health care are as everybody supposed to supply their own or what's the way they feel about that? Yeah. I think that healthcare is so messed up in this country that is difficult to even see the libertarian position the libertarian positions, the government should have been involved in healthcare in the first place, and that the price of healthcare, the healthcare costs have gone up commensurate with government intrusion. So as government got further and further and further into the healthcare industry prices went farther and farther and farther up and some Bob, Michael a conspiracy that maybe they realized that the, you know, with when Hillary Clinton tried to make Medicare for all, or whatever it was that she was going to do that, that, that, that dog wouldn't hunt, but if we make healthcare expensive enough, then everybody will claim her for the government. To take over for it. And so, maybe that's why George Bush had the largest intrusion of government in the medical fear under his administration than Obama had the, the largest at that time, too, and now healthcare costs are through the roof and nobody can afford it. And some kind of solution has to be had. This. This is terrible the way that we are being treated by our own country. We worked our lives and support the social security system and healthcare space. And now when we need it, we can't afford it. You're absolutely right, Bob. Thank you for the call. That's the life of a slave. It's what happens when you let the government do things. Eight five four five zero three seven three. Hi, I'm Derek J.

And he you know, he had he had a diagnosis, from a doctor that said my mom could no longer take care of herself, but he had Nord that and at some point if you years later, five years, her sister, went to the convalescent home in -ducted, my mother and center to LA county and forged a letter opened up a Bank account, still seventy thousand dollars, and there's no recourse, as far as law enforcement or any of that, what I said, Jess everybody saved their emails take picture of any check, you get and keep track of these things. So I filed a petition in court without any trust instrument may twenty third two thousand seventeen the next day I was in San Diego district attorney's office, I talked to them less than our Mike. I ant plead pled guilty to twelve Sony's on November, thirtieth two thousand eighteen. Well, so it happened pretty well. I mean, but, but still, I mean, I I'm surprised the stories turned out, this will, honestly is a long time between the, the twenty seventeen date and the twenty eighteen date though. That's right. But it's not over yet because I still have the husband and wife power of attorney mine mothers, convalescent home is sixty eight hundred dollars a month for me to call the receiver which is the accountant appointed by the court to tell me that another lawyers lying to me cost a hundred dollars for ten minutes. Yeah. So I'm just saying it's financial other views. It's the fastest growing crime, at least in California and bad in Florida, too. Yes. So what you need to do make peace with your family. Tell them what you want and get the lawyers and the counting out of there. I can't find a lawyer that will do anything except me, give me bad advice. I had one guy told me the truth because I don't care. I just wanna get paid so that the truth or doing the right thing is out the window as soon as you get accountants and lawyers. They don't care. They just want your money. Yeah, I, I really scared to death of this, this scenario, happening, and this elder law. Just say say I've done it myself I studied the law followed petitions. And if you go in, without if you're indigent, you don't have any money you can go in and wave the four hundred thirty dollars you get four hundred thirty dollars fee waiver if you can do that. It's a subject for the future subject. I wanna talk about, you know, keep talking about because I think this, this is a an issue of liberty. That is facing Americans, you know, increasingly they're, they're dealing with this, and it's a whole bunch of different ways that they can screw your estate to Sunday. You think you've worked your whole life so that you'll be taking care of your old age? And then maybe be able to pass on a little bit to your kids or grandkids. And there are these repay shis vultures out there that intend to pick you dry. And then, once they have they will throw you in the poor house. That's these these these nursing homes that are intended for those that are indigent. Like you're saying. And I'm not saying you know that the worst things in the world, but they aren't they aren't palatial right there, barebones. And it's not what a lot of people are working for, and what they expected. Yeah. Absolutely. Now what happened here is the district attorney gotta bus connection. They got in victory without even court file that they left me cold. The I get husbands line. Attorney look at look at the president's commit there, isn't it? You Mitchell trust, you had six months to light it into a survivors portion in exemption trust. Well, my mother didn't do that within six months, but it doesn't matter because the lawyer will tell you what you believe, and they'll take your money, and now I have to trust without without a valid trust instrument, and it goes on and on. And if you go to court that judged you can't you can't assume he even read the contract. I mean you got to hold his hand like he's a three year old. That thing. I mean, you know, these things are pages and pages long. They're not gonna read it yet. You absolutely do have to tell them step by step William. Let me know if there's any new information this case as a proceeds, the numbers, thank you so much for the call.

Here from the story here, says Gardena, someone who's appointed by the court whose can act on behalf of the individual who's under a mental or physical disability. And as a result is unable to make responsible decisions about his or her care or property. But you know that obviously, there are people in this conditions. However, if you get thrown into one of these situations, and you aren't one of them, or a family member does, and you can't do anything about it. That's a really tough scenario. I mean and I'll bet you a lot of these situations, whereas elder abuse happens is for like, what the examples that we've just heard. Isn't like these is probably not this old lady, who has nothing lives in an apartment and his getting social security. Check for five hundred dollars a month now it's people who've managed to save, but I will tell you, I do know of a situation where the victim is eighty five years old. She collects about eleven hundred dollars a month when social security and pension. And she has a son. That's fifty seven I think he's fifty seven and he's a crackhead and she'll find crack that stuff without like nineteen Ninety-two. What yeah. I guess I mean, it's all still around in the government invented it, it's here to stay. So anyways, he's a crackhead and every she'll get your social security on, like the third or fourth and she gets her pension on, like a couple of days later. Well for those few days, he just basically swiped, her debit card. He's gone, and totally wipes it out. And she is just like totally denies that her son stealing from her, and it's like. She eat.

One last story real quick. It's Rudy and Rene north who were happily living together in Las Vegas when one day. There was a knock at the door. It was one of the officers of the court who gave the couple three options. This is a quote from Rudy. We call the police. We have you go to a psychiatric ward choice three an assisted living facility. They were suddenly moved to facility by a woman they had never met before who was given control of them by a judge who had also never met them. And by the time they got out from under the guardians control two years later, most of their money was gone. These people had a savings, and it was more than I believe I remember correctly two hundred thousand and most of it was gone. I gotta believe that there is these services law firm services full of lawyers. I refer to lawyers bar Maga's. I advise people that never deal at lawyers. They're lying scumbags pretty much everyone I've ever met. And the they've just got to be looking for these people hustling them. I'm and it's so easy to do now with data. I mean your data's out there everywhere. Right. Everything is known about everybody, and especially a lot of these folks are everybody's on Facebook and got a g mail account. And, you know, they swipe their, you know, stop and shop card or whatever and all the data's out there that data's mind in its for sale and you can buy data. I'm sure I don't know how to do it. But these these there is got to be found. They're just they're just looking for these people to hunt him down. Steal from them. Let's go to the phones. David New Mexico. David, you're on free talk live. I got the in my right hand. I got the original document that separated from my children, which piece by piece only one page but can't go through all at one time, but piece by piece, I wanna share some things from it, because it's along the lines of what you started out with when the woman who had left her children in the car, and the CPS child protective came into her home with the cops and they stripped her children, naked along the lines of that kind of thing. But let me say the that subject. And when you come out now, they're all related everything is tied. It is related nowadays. It's all tied together to accomplish the agendas that the people of, you know, the, the industrial complex, it is your government there. This is all by design. None of this is by accident at the end of your life. They want they want your money during your life and at the end of your life. They wanna get that if you want to recapture all of that money. So really you never got anything unless you outsmart them in the ways that you can. And then when they get when they out away like you're one. Gentleman clued into that. If you get rid of your assets less than five years from the time that you are spending Medicaid dollars, then they'll charge you with fraud, so basically, in that case. Yeah, you is soon as you have heirs that you intend to pass on things to your death. Even if you're thirty five years old, you should start passing them on to the next generation, so that it's not legally and your name, as you age, in one of the things that if you go back, you know, whether you wanna come one hundred years or two hundred years or seventy five years different for every every people in place. But when the industrial revolution broke down the family, I believe that people in power saw the benefits to the people in power of the breaking down of the family. Because if you go back to, you know, let's go back to years, and there's a family on a farm somewhere in the United States. They didn't have any need for nursing homes. I mean it might have helped with. Things that they took care of their own. But then the government came along and said, hey, don't work on the farm coming work in the factory here. We'll give you all this money and, and so the people abandoned grandma, and then they need to do some made a new business. They could sell nursing home space, and people would have to pay that pay for that cash or else by policy, or hey, we'll help you with Medicaid. And but you gotta you gotta have no assets in order to qualify. You gotta neither spend you have to spend on your assets or the heck. From the industrial revolution to Medicaid, but, you know, I well, I agree with the last part of your furnace. Are you saying you can't follow it? I'm saying that the industrial revolution was inevitable. I don't think it was some kind of government conspiracy, and you're, you're, you're, you're missing the point. Let me be out. They may not have the foresight to say, hey, let's have industrial revolution so that we can do this to the citizens with these idiots. Do is win the natural flow of things happened, like you have a natural industrial revolution, which Hugh identified. Now, let me give you the next step, which you haven't identified. That's the, the maggots Meghan, the parasites, see what, what happens. Oh, this is breaking up the family. Hey, you know what we can make money off of this. And what I'm trying to tell you, no matter what it is. They find a way to make money off of it. That's true. That yeah. That's, that's what I said thirty follow it now. Well, I'm not sure that I see the correlation between the industrial revolution. But I certainly in, let's drop that lets you think about it some other time. Let me let me, let me just move on. So on the subject of the of the children thing, the Ray what, what the equivalent situation that happened to those people. What happened to me was under the current laws that we have what my ignorance not knowing that the, you know, if you have possession meaning fit your physically holding your child that the other parents can't take that child away from you. So if you split up with your, your spouse, and, and you allow as one parent you allow the other parent to leave that household, and establish a new household, and take your children with that was a mistake because then you can only get your children back with their cooperation or the court order. Right. That makes sense. Yeah. And now and now you're in the situation where you were talking to your, your, your caller just now a few minutes ago, we're talking about. And Jay was talking about, you know, don't Petra Nuys, the attorneys, and, and that's correct. You know, I mean it can work out for you. If you have a lot of money to spend, and you and you pay off pay the right attorneys, it can't work out for you, but it's gonna cost you tens of thousands of dollars to make it work out for you basically going into a gun fight with a knife. If one spouse has a has an attorney in a family court situation, and the other doesn't I don't think so they've. They've. You're saying you're saying, are you going into question? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You. Yeah. You are you can survive or even win in that situation. But it's extremely difficult. I mean, I've, I've managed to stay alive. This entire time without without an attorney that I was paying for and most of it without any attorney at all. And, and the only reason I stayed alive is because I had enough raw brainpower to, to navigate my way through the legal system. Get what minimal education I needed in order to stay alive. Whereas somebody other people, the majority of other people without professional help wouldn't have been able to keep their case alive. So, so, so, yeah. How however, so if you have the ability to do these things yourself, which I if you, if you have an I q of one hundred twenty or above you can do fairly well as compared to the average person and, and it's and it's worth pursuing because if you if you go the. Turney route. You're going to spend like I said guaranteed in, in any kind of a case like what we're talking about. You're gonna spend tens of thousands of dollars and closer to one hundred thousand then the other spouse have to spend that same kind of money in order to, you know the core. Core correct. So if, if they tap up part where where well depends, they might get it from their parents. They might already have it. I mean in my case, I'm they destroyed my ability to earn yet, and there are two income household, both of them making of a closer to one hundred then to fifty so take their combined income of of, you know, minimum of combined one hundred thousand dollars to to to mine, which is like, like basically ten percent of that. So they can afford to pay an attorney and I can't. So it depends on who you're matched against. Yeah. And you weigh this out to they'll, they'll be looking at that's part of their, their case strategy. How much money does my side have to work with compared to how much money does the other side? To work with some scorched stuff that's scary. You were talking about this. Now were you talking about a Julie? Belsey. E. L S, H E, were you talking about her case when you're talking about that guardianship case? I'm not sure that, that was one of the names of the well the cases I think. Hers is probably was her parents that they unbeknownst to her, her parents disappeared literally disappeared one day. She couldn't find them. And she finally tracked him down two months later, they were living in and they had some dementia. They were living in, in a living there. Thanks for the call eight five given the telephone number. Check us out at freetalklive dot com. We have some good news the indictments against ROY, celebrate in the district of Maryland were dismissed with prejudice. Meaning they can never be refiled. This is especially good, because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that rolls engaged in murder-for-hire. This was a serious allegation at roles Oprah denies it was never prosecuted or ruled on by a jury, but was trumpeted by the federal government and the media, as if it were proven fact, the Maryland, court held these indictments for almost five years, poisoning, Ross's case, and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations, as explained enroll says appeal to the supreme court.

FD radio far week now dot com, far week you can backdoor if the laws Yongqing Illinois farm bureau yesterday with country, financial heady webinars about several issues like the laid planting prevent planting M, F, P payments and other things. Adam Nielsen was on the webinar director Nashville legistlation that Illinois farm girl, and I'll preface this, and also in with talk about a couple of times that Adam used some numbers and used some examples of different counties which produced differently. For example, karaoke aunties about three to one corn. Definitely more of a continuous corn county Champaign county about fifty fifty corn. Soybeans Clinton county in southern Illinois has more weet. He emphasized that different counties, depending on the crops, that they farm likely have different payments. So even neighbors neighboring counties could have different structure. Through the MP program, and using numbers that had been rumored, although nothing has been made official yet, but sort of back of the African type of calculations just demonstrated. How different these payments could likely be if mitigation were to take place this summer corn county like Carol? Please do not take these numbers to Vang this, that there will be disparities whine corn using those numbers. Dollars raider, a fifty fifty of Asian walls twice as much as twenty four dollars per anger than the Clinton example, yielded hundred eight dollars acre. So again, that has been what have been speculated that be disparity. Can't create a perfect program, as your I'm during from other states, I ran these numbers of light full yesterday to communists. They have neither. Audience, you're on the right track in other states, there'd be willing with fallow Aigars last year. What you do. If you're if you're rotation called for of your operation foul last year, you're not gonna get aid on those acres, and then variation issues are also parent and other states as well. Urugayan versus nine year production. So all stats are going to be dealing with different variations of the charity, your them. We're gonna see on a county by county basis. So it's not like program east veget- imagination. But again, they're doing the best they can to try to get this aid up to you as soon as possible. Adam Nielsen, Illinois farm bureau from yesterday's webinar. Again. Those numbers are not set in stone. Those are guaranteed by any means simply an example of how county by county payments are expected to be different based on kind of production that goes on in those counties, can you defying the vote Lebanon are one way, is by contacting your county, farm bureau agent, Bella day yesterday for corn? And soybeans. We'd actually lead corn lower late yesterday. We'll hear more from Jim Taylor late in the program with overnight numbers readable also visit with agrivisor joke Cam, a little fog yesterday from Bill Biedermann markets dot net. It was a guest on our f- the today, but to do about this volatility, and so many questions still in the air about how much corn will be planted. What kind of production, could you even Bank on twenty nineteen we're in unprecedented territory. You know, we've never been in a situation where. Minnesota South Dakota North Dakota, you know, which is now past their planting day had nine million acres. Planted in eight point seven spills ago. And, you know, are they going to go ahead and plant that this week while it'd be hard because you can't get in field? It's different unprecedented volume geographic area. It's year catastrophic storyline. I say that carefully though, because the American farmer is unbelievable. What they can accomplish days giving them out for tuning in genetics are unbelievable. So that reasoning, you know, there's a lot of unknowns Bill Biedermann markets dot net who suggests in some ways advantage of what the market has right now but at the same time, leaving yourself open just in case, the worst case scenario happens. And do knows where these markets will go Koreans already multi-year highs. And so we've.

If you connected a good deed, or an act of kindness, doesn't cost dime, the rewards received for doing such acts. Priceless. I'm Markus Lohr with just Aw. We're back here on our ST L annoy. I'm Rita Frazier. Dave Kane is a pioneer field agronomist based in Springfield and covering territory, west from Springfield area the state, that's a little out of the rest. Although it's challenging for all Dave talks about the conversations. He's having this last week of this season. Yeah, that's for sure. Various things have come up such as. Replant but I know there's many growers that are just hoping to get an opportunity plant the very first time sort of our conversations of centered around. And now that we're at the point where it's the last few days may growers are wondering what sort of changes, do they need to make to their planting plan. They had said up oh way back in the winter hoping for April planting where stand as far as if you know, guestimation on customers planting progress, Springfield, west. What does it look like Springfield west up until about the Illinois river on corn is then maybe more favorable than other parts of the state to where two weeks ago window opened up and we're sitting somewhere in that sixty seventy five percent on average corn planted, and I know that there's a range in their growers who are done and growers who hadn't really started. But there's, there's a window there from about the white river east that had opportunity for about five or six days up. How does it look? We're going to uneven portions of, of most feels we've looked that whether that's because the ponding, whether that's because of less than perfect conditions that planting time. And, and that's just how it goes. There's it's going to be quite a change from last year to where we picture perfect day, and this year we're going to have to accept what what we have and, and work work with what else are you guys talking about, as far as getting through the next couple of weeks? So with what is left to plant, now, we're having conversations about okay, do I need to adjust the hybrid maturity of the product mix, and I'm going to plant, and we've got a few more days, here until maybe the first couple of days, June were suggesting stay with your original plan. But when we get past that, then we're suggesting shortening up your maturity to some degree. In this Eleanor activeness for for many years, and serving a lot of farmers. What's your take home given everything added up right now? We still have an opportunity granted the windows, closing, but we still have an opportunity should mother nature. Give us a window here through about June to make really strong effort at putting in crowd. Whether that's a corn crop or so being and having opportunity to harvest, what we can at that point, if we get to mid June. Then that's the time that we need to have a conversation with our input providers. Crop insurance folks to decide what the best plan is for you moving forward. One quick follow up. And that is when we talked about moving to shorter season variety on corn. What's supply situation on that right now? So speaking for ourselves in our company that we've been fortunate enough to have supply of what's shorter for us central Illinois hundred five hundred seven hundred eight products to be able to. Put in place for our sales to be able to serve our growers. Dave Kane pioneer field. Agronomist. Well today, southern Illinois. We tour going on. We talked we'd and marketing thoughts with Joe camp at aggravates services are getting good potential for the winter. We crop at this moment, still certainly a ton of threats to the crop as well. But we're coming into this week rated seventy percent seventy one percent good or excellent for the Ellen crop. There are some trouble spots in certain areas, of course, where we've gotten too much rain and that could still be detriment as we roll in the harvest here in a few short weeks. What will be seeing as certainly worry about about fungus about some scab that's a worry not only relevant for off red growers here. But something talked a lot about for the hard red crop out in the plains, generally speaking has been this idea that okay we could have trouble during RV. Vists that has put a bit under the wheat market here lately. So better prices to speak of how we'd having been in the lead here recently, those sort of quality, concerns harvest yield implications for now offsetting what we noted be really good yield potential, otherwise. So it seems like if we can get get some drier conditions to develop over the next couple of days, a couple of weeks before we get into the crop, you know, then then things certainly turn out pretty fair. We're looking at conditions across the US that are still above sixty percent. Good. Excellent. This time last year there were only thirty eight percent. Good to excellent, and we had the hard red. We crap to are there a couple of weeks ago, just finding phenomenal potentials record beating yields expected, and in some states or in some areas states like Oklahoma and Kansas solic- if that holds true when they start digging around southern Illinois Bagger visors services will gets an.

I'm Jim Taylor for the radio network. Good morning. This is Dan Hicks from freeze, notice weather with early morning. Whether updates on the RFID radio network for this Thursday morning, let's again, during the past twenty four hours, the active weather pattern, produced showers and thunderstorms across the midwest. Some of these thunderstorms were severe with some tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds pockets of heavy rainfall once again occurred from some of these thunderstorms in a few parts of Illinois and surrounding states. Daytime highs in the seventies and eighties were coming on Wednesday afternoon. Additional scattered showers and thunderstorms will gradually diminish over Illinois this morning, and then the potential for some scattered thunderstorms, redeveloping will occur over the region this afternoon. The seasoning this current weather system will finally move onto the southeast on Friday with drier weather across more of the midwest. Daytime highs in the seventies and eighties will continue across Illinois today into Friday. Another weather system will bring some scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region over the weekend. The overall pattern after that, though, into next week should favor less rainfall across much of the midwest and less potential for heavy rainfall. When rain chances do occur. High pressure building in from the north could bring to three days of dry weather early to mid next week, and then additional rain chances return during the six ten day timeframe, but again, most rainfall amounts should not be heavy six to ten day. Rainfall will likely average near to below normal in the northern half of the midwest and near to above normal in the southern half of the region, it does look like that during the six ten day, period. Heaviest rainfall will tend to occur farther south in the US extending from the southern half of the plains through the far southern mid west into the southern part of the nation six to ten day temperatures will average near to a few degrees above normal here in Illinois again, overall, though, no long, periods of dry weather are seen in the near future.

Also on our Thursday, rump down a look at how restorative Justice for juveniles can work better than jail time. Plus senior hunger. A stubborn problem across the nation. First our top story special counsel Robert Muller in his first public statement about his Russia, probe did not exonerate President Trump. It sent explaining why his office never considered it. Dining him for obstruction of Justice CBS news quotes Muller is saying as set forth in the report after the investigation if we had confidence of the president did not clearly commit a crime. We would have said, so the network ads molar also indicated he would decline to testify before congress, although he could still be subject to congressional subpoena. Muller indicated any testimony. From the office would not be on the report. It contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose the words carefully. The work speaks for itself. New Mexico environmentalists say contractors help build a nearly mile long wall on private property near the southern border over the weekend should be banned from future business opportunities in the state earlier this week, the mayor of Sunland park, follow the stop work order to halt a private group, from continuing the wall construction citing a lack of proper permits. In addition, the group's eighteen foot steel Bollard wall is taller than city. Ordinances allow, Kevin Bixby with a southwest environmental center believes the group's action showed disrespect for New Mexico and it's laws, I think more than anything. This is a Trump campaign stunt, his supporters want to demonstrate that he's actually making progress in building the wall, the group, which calls itself, we build the wall has. Promised to finish the project, which began building after a federal judge last week issued a preliminary injunction against construction on sections of the proposed wall. I'm Russ Brown. Crisco BAC legal adviser for we build the wall told the Kirke journal, the sullen part project has the blessing of President Donald Trump. And when a juvenile is accused of crime, making him or her face the victim. Take responsibility and make amends works better than posecutor. NFL time, Suzanne baller has details on the findings of new report. Oakland area adopted a restorative Justice approach nine years ago, and in just the first two years, they diverted one hundred two youth from the criminal, Justice system, giving them a second chance to get back on track. Jenna crisis with the group community works west which administers the program in Alameda County, she notes that kids who took part were almost forty four percent less likely to commit another crime within twelve months showed an eighteen point four percent of ISM rate, in Alameda County, where the traditional juvenile legal system, showed a thirty two point one percent Methodism rate with the control group, the process works like this, if the DA and the victim agree, the youth accused of a crime goes through a restorative Justice program and takes responsibility for the crime here. She will often face the victim. Apologize agree to make amends, perhaps by going through an anger management program paying the victim back in the case of theft. We're performing community service, if successful the charges are dropped. The report also found victims having ninety one percent satisfaction rate with the program, and the huge cost savings, for example, restored a community program in Oakland averaged about forty five hundred dollars a year per case, whereas probation, now meet a county costs about twenty three thousand dollars per year in North Carolina. Mecklenburg county community air pollution monitoring project is highlighting housing discrimination affects the health of predominantly African American residents for the past three years, people living in Charlotte's West End have been wearing sensors that measure air pollution in real time faith discovered spikes in air pollution after events such as rush hour.

Buzzed in hummed struggling to home in on the right frequency. The interference was distracting, but the codebreakers highly trained ear was the best in the air force. A now all his concentration was focused on picking out the distant rhythms. Banging through the either did dot dot dot did dot the tones came fast and furious buried and static. But the code breaker heard their message loud and clear and their message was big news. He checked his transcription twice before he left his post. He knew he was good. Very good. In fact, but he didn't wanna get this when wrong did for d a single bit for e for a and then another d d a d the young airman removed as headphones and contemplated. The impact of what he had just learned the MO. Most notorious mass murderer and the history of the world was dead. And right now, he was the only American who it he rose stiffly and shook out the kinks the long lonely hours hunched over the receiver were wearing on his back and hips. He walked to superiors office and entered without knocking this annoyed his superior. But the code breaker was never much for protocol. I have some news said the code breaker, and I have a door said, the superior maybe care to knock on it before entering. The code breaker just stood in waited. His soon to be trademarked snarl curled across his rugged face. Is there something you need airman not? Particularly replied, the code, breaker, in his distinctive baritone. I just thought your boss might like to know that Joseph Stalin is dead. The psychopath responsible for more than fifty million murders was gone, and the Soviet Union was for the moment without a leader, what that meant for the United States was far beyond the codebreakers, pay grade. But he knew the truth would take just a few minutes to find its way all the way across the North Atlantic and into president Eisenhower's. Hands hours later. It would be the headline in every newspaper around the world back home in Arkansas, his friends, and family would read all about it. But none of them whatever. No, it was. He who unlocked, the secret, I it's funny thought the code breaker. How fast news can travel, once you put it in a language. Everybody can understand. The return to his great uable and resumed shift. He listens for new information hidden in the static. But heard nothing. So we wrote a plaintiff letter to his girl back home, nothing about his work. Of course, that was forbidden, and he knew his letters would be read carefully, by the censors. He just told her. We loved her and Mr. and look forward to the day when his time was once again, his own later, though, as he lay awake in his steel bunk. Pondering, the gray walls, and the bad food, the restricted privileges, and the officious bosses the call the shots his thoughts returned to the hidden code. That announced the death of a murderer on his old guitar. He repeated the rhythm on the string before finally drifting off did dot dot didata did it? Da, the next day in what can only be called a happy coincidence for music fans around the world. The men of the twelfth radio squadron were treated to a film. It was a movie about another group of men stuck together far from home. They too were living in tight quarters. They too were confined against their will, and they too were desperately lonely. The code breaker understood their pain and resolve to put it into a language that everybody else could understand that night, the young airman who missed his sweetheart and urine to escape as post in Germany, reached again, for his old guitar, and captured the nuances and rhythms of loneliness. And 'isolation translating them into a melody recognized today around the world. Did dot dot dot did not. You know, as a country music legend with three hall of fame inductions, nine Siham awards and seventeen Grammy's, but back on March fifth nineteen fifty three he was just a homesick airman far from friends and family who just happened to figure out the Joseph Stalin was dead before the rest of the world, the code breaker, who shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

O W ease recruiter, they really are the smartest way to hire. And this is the way I heard it. Ed and his little brother had a lot in common. Both were talented actors both were genuine patriots. And both love Turkey with all the fixings. Unfortunately, Ed was a staunch Republican and his little brother devoted democrat. And that was not a recipe for a peaceful thanksgiving dinner. Before the election. The brothers had bickered over everything the economy immigration taxes, race relations the future of the supreme court, and, of course, the border, their arguments were heated, but respectful it was difficult for though, because it's kid brother had been Saddam smug. Like so many in the entertainment business, he had seen the election as a fait complete ED's. Little brother not only believed the democrat would win he believed victory would arrive in a landslide all the pundits said, so all the poster said, so and all the media agreed. Well on November eighth all that, when out the window to ED's, great relief and his brothers abject horror, the Republican prevailed now a few weeks after the most contentious election in American history. Ed was trying not to gloat. So he concentrated on his Turkey. Has his little brother called for an end to the electoral college. He enjoyed his mother's candied yams as his little brother bemoaned, the future of the first amendment, and the fates of the supreme court. But when his little brother loudly predicted the end of America's democracy and proclaim to everyone in the room that the buffoon in the Oval Office was not his president. Ed pushed back the election is over. He said, the American people have spoken and like it or not. He is your president now. Please shut up and pass the gravy. Ed's little brother pass the gravy, but he did not shut up. He offered instead and impassioned warning against the perils of dictatorships. He implored everyone at the table to resist the coming, police state and beg them to defend the Bill of rights lest advantage from existence under the despot now charge with each new sentence. His face grew more and more. Flushed, his voice rose higher higher like Shakespearean actor addressing the last row of sold out theater, the man is a tyrant. I tell you a tyrant and on my honor. He will never be my president with that ED's little brother, leapt to his feet and stomped off into the night. Slamming the door so hard a picture fell off the wall, Ed side apologized to his guests and turned his attention back to the Turkey later. Edward find a line in his brother's diary that. Stuck with him. It read fame fame fame. I must have it. I must have fame at wondered if maybe the divide between them might have been more than political, because even though both brothers were talented actors only Ed was famous. It was Ed who traveled to Europe and toured the United States. It was Ed whose name appeared on Broadway marquees. It was who basked in the glow of critical reviews after playing the role of hamlet for one hundred consecutive nights. And it was egged, who statue was erected in Gramercy park, the first American actor to be honored in such a way. So why Edward forgotten today, because five months after ruining thanksgiving dinner, Ed younger, brother gave a performance that would forever upstage his older brother. And shock the entertainment industry. It was only a cameo with a single line but he delivered it with unforgettable passion, like Shakespearean actor addressing the last row of sold out theater. Seek Semper to Rinus, thus always to tyrants. It was a curious thing to say about a president who wanted to make America great again unless of course you wanted a different kind of America, but divided America in America, where one man could legally own another man. That's why at the end of America's long and bloody civil war ED's. Little brother left onto the stage at Ford's theatre delivered his one line seconds after shooting, a tyrant named ABRAHAM LINCOLN. That's why today we barely remember Ed, the former a list celebrity whose name was once the toast of Broadway lives now forever in the shadow of his younger, sibling lesser known talents, who dreamt of fame, but settled for infamy, the murderous little brother of Edwin booth, whose full name no longer bears repeating.

The new governor looked down from the podium and considered his legacy. He wanted to be remembered as a great leader tough, but fair Amana faith who lived by the courage of his convictions. But right now that legacy was in question hundreds of angry. Protesters were occupying the capital and it was clear. They were not going home anytime soon, what to do send in the troops and risk a PR disaster, were given to the demands of an unruly mob. The trouble begun five days earlier, when the governor hung, several large banners in the town square. Each banner featured, a commandment, the most important commandment of them all in his opinion. It was a risky move as a politician. The governor understood the danger of publicly declaring his faith, but as a leader, he wanted the people to understand that his devotion to a higher power. Was sincere at first the governor was relieved by the reaction, a few nonbelievers shouted insults toward the capital, but not much else on the second day, though, the protesters returned in greater numbers and demanded the banners. Come down naturally. The governor refused that kind of weakness was out of the question. However, the governor was a reasonable man and address the protesters directly from the podium high above the capitol steps, he spoke to the angry mob, about his faith, and encourage them to follow his example, for it is, in his name said the governor and by his grace that peace and prosperity will come to this. Untamed land. The protesters were not convinced they didn't share the governor's faith, and they did not disperse soon. They were joined by others. And then by others after that. And now after five days of simmering discontent the prospect of danger was both clear and present the young governor had to make decision. He had to show the people who was really in charge behind the capital, the troops awaited orders. The governor figured the rabble would likely scatter at the first sight of his militia, but he knew many would resist, and he knew that many would die, but he also knew that history would remember him as a governor who was tough, but fair Amana faith who stood by the courage of his convictions. The governor gave the order and the soldiers marched toward the mob weapons trained on hundreds of protesters, but then a curious thing, happened, the protesters didn't scatter nor did they resist. They simply sat down before sit ins were even thing, the exhausted men drop to their knees, right there in the dirt link their arms together, and dared the governor's men to kill them, where they sent the soldiers raise their weapons and waited for the final command. The governor stared down from his vantage point high above the unfolding drama. He gazed across the square. The offending banner that had caused all the trouble hanging limp in the breeze list afternoon. He thought again about his legacy, and then the governor blinked he called office, soldiers and removed. The offending banners later in the quietude of the capital, his advisors congratulated him for defusing deadly situation with no bloodshed, they called him prudent and merciful, maybe he'd be remembered today for those same qualities were it, not for another protest, a few years later, a protest where the governor would once again, appease, another angry mob, and assure his legacy once and for all by, then, of course, no one was really surprised because the citizens knew exactly what kind of man, their governor was a man who would tear down the banners that proclaimed his devotion to a higher power. The same banners that broadcast, the most important commandment of all hail Caesar. After all, if the people could get their governor to betray his own emperor, who knows what else they could get this guy to do this governor of Judea this man. They called punches pilot.

Welcome to the news, where the all the day's news in less than ten minutes, fast, fair fund, and on the go. I'm Erica Mandy, thanks so much for being here you ready. Let's do this. For the first time since the start of the Russian investigation, the person who led the probe actually talked about it in public special counsel, Robert Muller, made his first public comments in two years in a nine minute press conference yesterday. It was nothing really new, but it mattered what molar chose to highlight for one molar stressed that the investigation did not exonerate President Trump despite what the president has said, Moeller said, quote, if we had confidence at the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said, so molar also talked about the policy not to charge a sitting president with a crime. He said that he never considered charging the president, because the constitution does not allow it the rather, it's up to congress to decide if and how to hold presidents accountable, for wrongdoing likely hinting to the fact that congress can decide whether or not to impeach and convict presidents Miller, also announced, he's resigning and plans to return to a private life. He also made it clear he does not want to testify in front of congress about all of this. And if. Does have to. He'll only say what's already in his final report. President Trump's response to this whole thing, quote the cases closed, and he'll reports other Republicans agree, saying it's time to move on some Democrats on the other hand Moeller's comments as a call for congress to do more to hold the president accountable, including considering impeachment for now. NBC news reports. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says all options are still in the table. But notice is yet stay tuned. We are now less than a month away from the first presidential primary debate. And because there's a long list of more than twenty candidates, hoping to get the nomination and run against President Trump in twenty twenty the Democratic Party is making some new rules. Politico reports the Democratic National Committee, rolled out, stricter thresholds for candidates to take part in those debates doubling the requirements to stay in the race at least later this year. It'll still be crowded in the first two debates in June and July, but by the third debate in September, the DNC says, only those who at least two percent in four approved polls, and get a higher number of donors will be allowed to participate. The DNC is under pressure to narrow the candidates down. But critics say it's not inclusive enough so far a handful of candidates have already met those new requirements. For the first time in Israel's history, the country has to hold a second national election in a year as in a redo last month. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared victory in Israel's election from their Netanyahu had six weeks to form a government, but failed ABC news reports bickering among his allies and disagreements over proposed bills stopped Netanyahu from bringing together enough party leaders to form a government. So the BBC reports is really lawmakers voted to dissolve parliament and start over.

Just need to move the shopping cart outside of the app itself. And if they do that, they're good to go.

There are now big plans to bring the faster five G wireless network to your future. Flights venture beat reports inflight internet provider, gogo, which already provides wifi connections in the sky is working on this now. And the goal is to keep the cost low and improve the response time of internet in the air go hopes to add the faster service to commercial flights by twenty twenty one. And if you're so little confused about five G you are not alone. Stay right there. We're talking all about it. Right now in today's thing to know Thursday interview. And that's for the main news today, but as I mentioned, it's now, time for thing to know Thursday, we're different expert explains a different thing to know, only on Thursdays, after the news this week, we're talking all about five G what it is what it means for your future internet use, and what it will take to make it available across the country. Today has been recognized as telecom industry leader, an innovator. He's the CEO and co founder of open signal which independently measures real world mobile experiences open, signals analytics, and insights are used across the mobile industry. So here's my conversation with Brendan Gill. Thanks to have make. So I wanna start with a few of the basics. What is five G? How do you like to explain it to people and how it compares to what we usually use? Now. Sure so Safai g stands for the fifth generation in effect is just the latest and greatest technology that will be replacing the previous technology, the mobile clinic tippety, the primary benefits that apprentice store or at least talked about cover a few different things. One is around fosters speeds, just like four G before Baiji is set to raise those speeds even potentially somewhere in the region of ten two hundred times foster speeds than the, the mobile actively that to consume as have today. And before you go on, let's just can you give us an example of what that looks like when we're looking at data? Yeah. I think that's a good question is one of the key. Questions around five is what, what is that extra speed actually going to translate to of a better experience with forty the previous generation, it was quite clear. The increase in speed brought us things like the ability to do video conferencing, FaceTime, which was not really possible before g came along browsing social media was probably going to be quite painful before g came along at forty kind of soul that with five G is not quite as click in terms of what will be able to do that. We weren't able to do beforehand, because we can already brow social media. We can already watch videos. We can typically watch high definition video on mobile networks today. Now, people talk about a few different areas. People talk about we'll mention reality and virtual reality, such potentially, you know, the future generations of Pokemon mongo, for example, might require a even will bandwidth and even more capabilities. And, and maybe. Five G will enable that, but exactly, what that looks like is still being figured out of the moment, potentially connected. 'cause so the more and more 'cause of being connected and additional intelligence is being powered through two vehicles that might require high bandwidth networks. But again, it's not totally clear cut exactly what new features will get that we on currently get a causa getting smaller all the time if downloading lodge file in a simple sensei whether that's downloading video to make it available offline before you're about to take a flight or something like that, which are the people like to do then, you know instead of that taking five minutes or so on a network, it might take a matter of seconds on the five G network. So, you know how much of an improvement your life? That's going to be is an open question. But, but you'll you'll suddenly notice the faucet speed when it comes to that. And the same is true. You know, if you browsing Email downloading a really large attachment or if you downloading in new app, then, again, you'll really shave off the time that takes to happen. So kind of cut a few corners, in your life, and make a few things more effective, but, you know, I think that the revolutionary impacts that talked about, I think we're still figuring out exactly what was going to be, and I know I cut you off a little bit. Is there anything else that you wanted to address about the difference between five G and four G? Yeah, there's a couple of things regularly talked about. So one of the one is releasing something called latency, and you can think of latency is how responsive your connectivity is how quickly from when you all skill live all device to do something that it, you start getting a response, and you start seeing progress, so if you're browsing, the web, you know, from when you enter at URL L, how quickly you start to see that. Loading is really what the latency impacts and. Five G is set to really reduce the latency and make things much more responsive than they currently are on fourteen. And so the client of use cases that the talks about about why this is super important, one of the common ones that gets talked about as actually doing remote, sundry. So that is what it sounds like and will about actually having doctors will sessions full a surgery on someone who's not in the same room as them potentially not in the same city, potentially not even in the same country potentially free up the busy of sergeants and allow people to act remotely. But obviously if someone's can be diving into your buddy at a distance, you're gonna wanna make sure that what best seeing on that side is exactly the real time picture. And that's why low latency becomes super super important. This sort of final benefit. That's often talked about there is a kind of limitation of current networks, just in terms of the number of devices networks currently just about. Able to to manage the massive increase in the number of devices. We have from mobile devices Monday, while phones, but all the way to tablets, and increasingly more connected devices from watches to fitness trackers, and someone inside fool and going with that is expected to increase, and one of the final benefits, five G is an increase -bility to deal with this complete spectrum of new, and more exotic devices and speaking of devices, I know that's one of the challenges with five G. Is that people really don't have five G capable devices right now? Can you talk a little bit about that in any other challenges? You're seeing right now. Yeah. I mean thing in terms of how we get five t this is a number of steps that have to happen. So number one the, the networks themselves the mobile carriers have to roll out these five G networks, and that takes a lot of money and investment. It'll take takes a lot of time. Time in order to actually quip the, the actual study towels with new capabilities. But then consumers also need to get a device, it's going to be compatible with five G. Everyone's current devices not gonna be able to take advantage of five, gene, and the new the first five, gene, handsets just hitting the mock. It things like Samsung's s ten is just coming out in the US as we speak, you gotta white coverage area. You go to buy expensive, new device and might be a few quirks in the first few time, you try and use five G. So they're all quite a few barriers that we gotta get first before five G becomes something that we want will ubiquitous, what do you expect your best? Guess about the time line for this to really roll out to where most of the country is able to use it. The carries themselves putting out very optimistic statements in suggesting that large-scale rollouts will happen. Relatively quickly. So we're talking about within the next sort of eighteen months or so a lot of I think, number of the carries a saying they'll have pretty wide scale rollouts of the technology, whether that will actually happen, think will will be determined by how quick, the uptake is have good the experiences alternately, if it's not a great experience people that might slow things down a bit. But the other things noticed this is gonna be different flavors of five G this different kinds of five G just to confused things a little bit further. And it might mean that some of the really transformative benefits, five G might take a little bit longer to come. Even if we have a form of five t that's rolled out across the US nationwide over short a time period. And you can learn more about our guest today or read more about five G in today's show notes that's also where you'll find links to all the stories.

And yet we now discover gets an integrated mesh system from outside our time domain, welcome to sixty six forty the ministry outreach of coin Aena house and Cornyn institute, today's bible teacher is Dr Chuck, Mr. connecting the bible to your life and the world around you it today study. Dr Mr. continues his teaching on the gospel, according to Luke chapter, twenty one. But then jeez aren't any manual Saturday. You know, here's Christ do their believe it not for their shell rise. False Christ's and false prophets and she'll show great signs and wonders as much that if possible they shall see the very lack behold, after before we're gonna see a lot of similarities with Luke account. So let's not throw us. I'll come to get when we get in a moment, contains wherefore. They say to you behold is in the desert forth. Behold his in the secret chambers believe a that for a lightning coming out of east and shine even the west so shall also the coming of the son of man be don't confuse this the rapture, that's a whole nother study. But let's go on here then you have the strange phrase for wherever the carcasses there, will the eagles begetter together, very inex- Matic allusion, that many scholars have slightly different views over probably get into that here. But let's leave it where it is right now. Then just continues Matthew immediately after the tribulation those days, shall the sun be darkened, the moon, shall not give her light. The star show fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens, Shelby shaking, then she'll appear the sign of the son of man, and having all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory question has this happened yet not, so you'd notice, so whatever this is it still yet, future. Fair enough. Let's go ahead here. That's me after the tribulation of those days traditions tribulation of those days. So we have the typical diagrams that we use in some of our presentations. We have sixty nine weeks, we have interval between the six hundred seventieth this we defined by coveted enforced by world eater that coveted enforced for actually six years, eleven months, but anyway, in the middle of that week of years, the abomination of desperation up at your milestone, Jesus made. So much of in this passage himself. Labels the time after that the last three and a half years of the seven year period, the great tribulation and that's interrupted by the second coming of Christ establishment, what we call the money and his kingdom on the earth. Wow. Okay. There are different views among different church folk, there are some that believe the raptor, Kerr's are Matteis or just before a second coming. It's what they call a post rapture view. There are others that believe that it happens before the seventieth week, we are in that group pretty much. There are some that say they put it in the middle we call mid tribulation, which is of misnomer because the tribulations read what they really mean is they see the, the rapture occurring prior to or approximate at the middle of the week. The trouble with these last with mid trib and the poster thing is they deny doctrine of eminence, the idea that Jesus can back can come back at any moment, down barn house used to Kim students by coming the office saying said they said they Jesus can't come back today. Meaning that if hell those us Jesus can't come back there specific things that have to happen. I and its contract with test tells us, we should expect them at any moment. Now that's talking about the rapture, not the second coming but okay. So we're pre trib here. Whether you are now it's up to you. You make your own study. We'll tell you why we have this view, anytime you want to get into it. But clearly we're in this interval during this interval. Jesus crucified, temples destroyed, and we know last at least thirty eight years, while she see that express, in the Luke account. But obviously, it's been longer than almost two thousand years. Okay. So remember that the pre trib view has the raptor occurring. Some interval prior to being seventh week. It might be an hour might be thirty years. We don't. No because if some preconditions after the rapture but before the week and start, but when move on here continuing the Matthew account, and he said his angels, with the great sound of the trumpet initial gathered together elect from the four wins and from one end of heaven, the other. Now learn the parable of the fig tree, when his branches yet tender and put forth leaves. He know that summer is not many people try to make the fig tree, Israel. And there's some sense in occasions when that is appropriate. But some people may be making too much of that will come to back in a minute. But when victory put forth leave, you know, summer is nice so like what she when you see all these things. No. That is an area, even at the doors for this generation not pass all these things before filled and we'll get back at the generation thing later, heaven initial pass away, but my words will not pass away. But if that day our know of no, man, no, not the angels of heaven. But my father only. Very important verse. Many people set dates, I think this, that is that when now the second coming, we know and that's going to be because we know the preceding conditions that lead up to it, but of that they are hours north no man. No, not the angels of heaven. But my father only this is one place where the market count throws in little boomerang in here in the market count. Peter's account is recorded slightly differently says having pass away, but my worship not pass away, but of that, Dan, our knows no man. No. Not the angels, having neither the son. But the father, only now this verse catches are the legends attention, because apparently at least at that moment, there was something, the father knew the son didn't. And that punchers some of the some of the glib cliches that we sometimes bandied about. I don't think it's too material except us to improve our understanding. But the main point is, we think that if you look at the first sentence of book relation you realize that's the fathers disclosure to Jesus that he then and signified it to his servant, John, and so forth. So there is at least a time when he he comes into his full knowledge. Some people feel that happened at his baptism. But this this remark was after baptism yet is prior to the revelation. The unveiling of Christ, which God gave on the him under whom Jesus Christ for sentence, very important in the begrudge relation. Let's move on, neither the son interesting phase. But then we continue, Matthew. Twenty four verse. Thirty seven is the days of Noah were social, also the coming of man Manby. For as the days that there were before the flood reading, drinking, Mary, giving marriage until the day that Noah, enter the into the ark and until the flood came and took them all away, social, also, the coming of the man be, so there's obviously some similarities between the days of Noah and the days when Jesus comes back. How far you apply? This point of scholastic debate it could simply mean that business as usual till he returns fair enough. Many scholars think there's more here than meets the eye. They feel you can't really understand this understand Genesis six and the conditions that lead up to the flood of Noah because the as the days of no, what were the days of no alike, and they were very, very strange and some strangers there. You may want to get into we won't take the time here to get into it. Let's just where though. But he contains then she'll be two in the field. We take the left two women grinding at the mill once you'll be taken that early in the morning. Feels middle day to him in the mail, once be taking the left. That's a breakfast thing. Breakfasting watch therefore for, you know, not what our Laura come, but know this that if a good man of the house had known in what, what watch this the would come he would have watched and we're not have suffered his house to broke it up. Don't be thrown by this verse because of the term Goodman. We misunderstand that simply a term for the owner if you will, or the good, man is it means the master the head of the house, and what he's retorting about here who is the head who is the God of world Satan, so strangely enough, that's the point. That's why I personally hold the view. The reason that the rapture of the church is indeterminate from our point of view is the whole idea is to catch Satan by surprise because when the rapture happens. He knows that he has a small window of opportunity. And so this is misleading if you take the good manners me, a good man knows the term means master, the house really would not over to his house to be broken up. Therefore, be also ready for such an hour as you think not. On a man who then is faith when y servant whom his Lord has made rule household to give them and do season blessed that serving who was Lord when he come shell finds so doing very Sandia that he shall make him ruler overall goods. So this is one of those verses that instructs us to occupy till he comes. Yes. We study prophecy. Yes, we look we excitement expectation. But meanwhile we keep busy doing his work, and that's the call, obviously. But if that he serve you're saying, heart. My Lord delay of has coming and she'll begin this might as servants and eat and drink with drunken the Lord of service coming today when he said look, if not for him. And in our that he is not aware of, and she'll cut him a center appoint him as portion with the hypocrites, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, by the way. This is one of the uses of that, phrase, it doesn't necessarily mean going to hell. He he brew term extreme disappointment. And it doesn't just used here. It's pretty pretty serious stuff. But it's us wherever there's major disappointment. I want to indulge a concept here called not from Knicks called resolving Bauer. If you get a cheap telescope and go out at night, and look at his star you see a bright spot. Big deal you go back to the store and spend a lot of money and get a really good telescope and look at that same star. Discover something amazing you that single stars actually double star. There are properties of really good upticks that are called resolving power. They can discern this thing between two things that are very close together, there many stars that are stars. And this is one way good telescope will turn the concept of resolving power and optics is a concept. You're gonna play the language often, there are words or expressions that are almost synonymous, be careful with that. We're almost because we have two accounts here, the olive discourse package and Luke twenty one package and I'm going to suggest to you that they are not dental. They share some phrases that are identical, especially what we're going to just lump and call the beginning of sorrows, but Luke account talks about things before, though it mentions those, but before that talks about some things Matthew use that term, and then talks about, so Lucas, focusing before the beginning of Matthew what follows, and it turns out, there are two destruction of Jerusalem destruction. Number one is the one that occurred seventy eighty destruction. Number two, is the one that's going to be the subject of the battle of Armageddon. If you will now are prepared to take a look at twenty one having refreshed ourselves, a Matthew, twenty four twin Twenty-one starting about picking I five and some big of a temple how it was Norne with goodly stones and gifts. He said as these things, which hold the days will come in the witch their show, not be left once-tony another that you'll not be thrown down. They asked him saying master, but when she'll these things and what, what sign? Shall there, be when these things come to pass fair question? Very similar not exactly. But very similar to Matthew thing, okay? Even God's people will be in danger being deceived. The point for centuries, Satan has led people stray and blinding their hearts. Perhaps his greatest coup is gonna as people doesn't exist. Have you don't think things exist? Try posing sometime and that's a subject of studies. You can take on your own and out of all of this. They've been date centers, all through history and have their reasons for setting dates, even though Jesus don't for such as you think not the son of man coming. Nobody knows the term of return. We know there's some preceding events that pre that precede his kingdom so that's easier, but the raptor could happen at any moment before we finish this discussion, he said, be not deceived seat, balancing obedience and second Peter three hammers away on that if you want to get continuing per se. Said take that you'd be not see for coming my name thing I am Christ in the time draws near go not therefore after them notice. That's an command, not a suggestion be not to save. When you show here of wars, and commotions, not terrified for these things. Must I come to pass. But the end is not by, by this Fhimah knows that these are not signs clustering events that are going to they're not signs, then he said a nation show. Rising nation came to be kingdom. Greater quake. She'll be in divers places, and famines and pestilence as fearful sites and great sign shell there be from heaven. Again, this is the same list that we saw before the false Christ than wars. Famines besson's. They're listed Matthew listed here in Luke. And, and they're going to be some more coming and revelation for twelve versus continues. But before all these, they show lay their hands on you. Before all these notice this very important phrase. Nuke lists, the beginning of sorrows idioms, but then when he talks about happens before those signs, okay, we've already seen some of those signs, but he's talking about something for us history before all these they lay their hands on you persecute. You deliver you up to the synagogues in the prisons being brought before kings and Rudas for my name, say, and she'll turn to you for testimony subtle, therefore, your heart's, not to meditate before what is your answer for? I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversary show, not be able to gain say, resist and you she'll be betrayed. Both my parents, my brethren, kinsfolk, and friends, and some of you shall cause to be put Tadesse and you should be hated of all men for my namesake, but they're not of your head perish in your patients possess your souls. And when he show see Jerusalem, compass with armies, then know that the desolation of is not. By then, let them which be are injured flee to the mountains, and let them, which are in the midst of it depart out, and let them that are in the countries enter their into for the these days vengeance that all things, which are written maybe filled. This, obviously very parallel would seem to the master count separate quickly. Discover that this refers to events that are right on their horizon. Okay. In fact, he's telling them that they this will happen within their lifetime, not hundreds of years later, I need a little history here. The space and was commanded by Niro to attack the Rousselin. He and his son Titus were to hit succeeded in dealing with the city's north of Judea and region. We call Israel, the space son, Titus attack the cities in the Galilee, and so forth. But then a strange thing happens that people overlook Niro dies. It was under Niro's orders. They were doing and near as died when he died his orders, expire so to speak. There was a struggle for power in Rome, a couple of guys tried to take over and then put off then Ortho Vitalis they've for thrown murdering other and whenever space in figures, his opportunity play his Trump card so he leaves and goes to Rome and takes over the empire. He becomes the he becomes the Caesar if you will. And when he does that, then he tells his son Titus to go ahead and finish the job. Okay, complete the siege this on just in volume six of the wars of Jews, and so forth. Now once you get the picture their soldiers were encamped around there. They weren't set up the siege it for about six months. All this is going on and room when it gets resolved Titus to go forward and he sets up the siege. Jesus had warned his believers, when you see the. Armie out there. Get outta turn and don't let your friends come back. Right. Okay. We know from your CBS, one of the church fathers, his records book, three that the Christians escaped to the mountains and Pella, which is in Perea and pre was under Syrian administration under a different situation. I've always wondered you said that not one Christian died during the over a million people that were killed during the siege Titus two siege of Jerusalem. Jerusalem, fell seventy I kept waiting in well, no Christians died how you know, 'cause you see records that the Christians because of what Jesus told him to do got out of town before they didn't they survived it. So but then contained vote in them that are with child into them to give second in those days, there shall be great distressing. The land and wrath upon this people and she'll fall by the sword. Jimmy let away captive into all nations, and Jerusalem, Shelby trodden down of the gentiles until the times of the gentiles, fulfilled. And they were that was the diaspora to this day really times. Genta don't confuse that phrase used here with the phrase, fullness of the gentiles that Paul uses of the church in room eleven twenty five times of gentiles actually begin with gentile dominion, all the way to the anti Christ the fullest of the gentiles term the church and ends with after moving on here, and there should be signs in the sun in the moon and the stars and upon the earth distress nations, with perplexity in the sea, in the waves roaring men's hearts, failing them for fear and for looking after those things, which are coming on the earth for the powers of heaven Shelby shaken and then she'll see the son of man, coming and a cloud with power and great glory. That's not hard also. That's the coming in power when you get to verse twenty six we always used to hold her breath. Walter Martin was whenever you ran with versed. He would always gesture says men's hearts failing them for fear and for looking at. After those things, which are coming on the earth. And he always gesture, like flying saucer. He was convinced that this was he was really on that kick. We tried to keep away from that wouldn't discredit this ministry for lotteries, but anyway, in fact, took Smith kitted. And I when we did our book encounters. He's always tell people not to get into this because it will discredit their ministry. We explained to Chuck the same thing to water. They have ministries. We don't wanna discredit Mark. He's been we have nothing to lose this week, and we're all just kidding about it. But still anyway, moving on here, and you'll see they shall see that's a man coming park. Laurie. Any speak unto them parable, and again to dri comes up here, but notice loose account. It's made out of EMMY purple, behold, the fig tree, and all the trees. It's because of this account by Luke. I think the point of this parable is simply that spring, not a specific development of the fig tree as Israel or something, picking them bearable Bill to fig tree, and all the trees when the shoot forth e no of your own selves that summer is now nine at hand. So likewise, you when you see these things come to pass. No, that the kingdom of God is not apparel to me, straightforward and simple. I don't think it needs to be pushed for the and all the trees. This is rarely I send you this generation, not pass away to be fulfilled in this case here. He's talking to people in the temple. And he's telling me when you see the army's out of town, because he says that they do, there is a prophecy, that most people miss, or Jesus predicts this happens thirty eight years from the time, he said this gruesome falls, the same generation of period, thirty eight years, that is in Deuteronomy to as the period of the wandering numbers forty years and around terms, thirty eight years precisely, but it just says having pass away, but my words show, not pass away take to yourselves an anytime. Your hearts be overcharged with surfing and Duncan this or cares of this life and so that they come upon. You wears it can come at any moment. He's talking about the rapture there, of course, for as a snare show at come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch out for that one the book of revelation has two groups of people, the believers and those that the earth dwellers those that dwell on the earth. The term is used there for those that are dwelling on the earth in contrast being Viant to God. So as a snare, come up on all of them that dwell on the face of the earth. Don't be an earth dweller where just pilgrim's passing through Jesus continue. Watch their foreign pre always that. Ye may be accounted worthy to escape. All these things come to pass and stand before the son of man. Boy as a general instructions tells me, a lot still through the church is not scheduled go through tribulation, because apparently, you can watch and pray that she will be kinda where to what to escape these things to be caught up before the big stuff. All right. Let's move on here, beginning of sorrows, we've been through these. No. Those after this all both Matthew look also talk about cosmic upheaval. That's not part of the beginning of sorrows. It's at the end of their discount. Don't make the mistake of lumping that in their show you why. Because in Luke accounts says the greater quake, she'll be divers places famines pencils for sites. But before all these, there's that phrase, again, this highlight the fact that verse twelve twenty one tells you what Lucas focusing on that which occurs before all this? Okay. So different Luke says, before all these things all these beginning of sorrows, Matthew says, then after those. Oh, there's a fundamental tie. Kata me here between the Luke and Matthew account false Christ four families over the beginning of sorrows. So again, it's this resolving power. We have twenty one twenty four beginning of ours is the common part here before these after these desolation I if Selena juice, making seventy the desolation that yet coming, this generation, not pass away as talking to the generation that is dealing with the I o. Oh, he's going to use that same phrase, Matthew. But I'm gonna suggest he's referring to those that are in the end times. And as an issue, there come to, here's a diagram that I hope really unlocks the whole program for you. Let's assume there's Matthew twenty four and there's Luke in. We're going from smallest versus larger the right, both of these accounts deal with wars, famines earthquakes, the beginning of sorrows, both of these accounts make reference to these wild cosmic upheavals at the end. Okay. No problem, Matthew, when he talks about the beginning of sorrows, then after that we have the bomb nation of desolation. Right. And we have the great tribulation time of, of trouble and so forth, and so on no problem there. Luke, though, when he gets the wars fan, he says before these things, and he talks about the fall of juice, seventy. I'm gonna call that desolation number one. Matthew doesn't even touch on it. He talks about dissolution where I'm calling desolation number two that final this elation of Roussel with a great tribulation and all that, now, when Jesus says to Luke twenty one he says this generation pass that's the generation. Right. Then. Matthews uses that phrase, referring to those that are seeing those signs. Accommodation. Dissolution following a one of the thing we have the seven letters to seven churches, where do they fit in well, they obviously fit in prior to revelation chapter six therefore prior to the wars, famines, and so forth. Okay. So we're together there. I think right now, if you look the seven letter seven churches, they have a number of applications out, the least which those historical history of the church from the static church. The persecuted church, the church, that's married to the world, the diva church denominational church, the missionary church and the pasta church, which both our character characteristics of all churches throughout history, but the also donate certain periods of church history. Now, we know that the first group, the promises of the overcome our postscript strangely enough, the last four the promises, the overcome are in the body the letter. So for some reason structural difference between these two and we discovered on inspection that this last four have an explicit. Everson, second coming of Christ deliver.

So how do we develop a sense of joy that transcends whatever problems come our way having just completed our study on Jona today? Chuck's went all turns to the New Testament book of Philippians for the answer. Our series is called laugh. Again, maybe you come to a place in your life where the levity is Wayne, and most days, are consumed with heaviness in this study, this cover how to recover our smile as he opens today's insight for living Chuck sets the stage on what it means to laugh again. Somewhat asked Mother Teresa, what the job description was for what she did anyone that wanted to work alongside her to do her work with her. She said, only two things I desire to work and to work hard and second was a joyful attitude. We appreciate her work, and we have watched it over the years. And the same is true in any endeavor hard work diligence, that, that knows no stopping a commitment to the end. But with that a tempering spirit of joy that accompanies that hard work, I would like to read for you, rather than have you follow in your copy of the scriptures. I wanna read from the living bible, a few sections from this wonderful book of joy, the letter of Philippians and just have you listen to the recurring theme how it keeps coming back to visit with you, as you read through the letter from Paul and Timothy slaves of Jesus Christ to the pastors and deacons and all the Christians in the city of Phillipine may, God bless you. All. Yes, I pray that God our father and the Lord, Jesus Christ will give each of you his fullest blessings, and his piece in your hearts, and your lives, all my prayers for you or full of praise to God. When I pray for you. My heart is full of joy because of all your wonderful help in making known the good news about Christ from the time you first heard it until now. Is there any such thing as Christians cheering each other up? Do you love me enough to want help me does it mean anything to you that we are brothers and sisters in the Lord sharing the same spirit, or your heart's tender and sympathetic at all? Then make me truly happy by loving each other and agreeing wholeheartedly with each other working together with one heart and mind purpose. Don't be selfish. Don't live to make good impression on others behavioral thinking of others as better than yourself. Don't just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others to and in what they are doing. Whatever happens. Their friends be glad in the Lord. I never get tired of telling you this, and it is good for you to hear it again. And again. Dear brothers and sisters. I love you long to see you for you. Are my joy and my reward for my work, my beloved friends, stay true to the Lord. Always be full of joy in the Lord. And I say it again rejoice let everyone see that you are unselfish and considerate in all that you do. Remember that the Lord is coming soon. Don't worry about anything, pray instead about everything. Tell God your needs and don't forget to thank him for his answers, if you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand his peaceful. Keep your thoughts, and your heart's quiet. And at wrist, as you trust in Christ, Jesus. Rather rare message in our day of bad news and dark messages. And I think we're overdue for a good dose of joy, not only today, but in the weeks to come as we study the letter to the flipping a letter that makes you smile. You're listening to insight for living to search the scriptures with Chuck swindle. Sure to download his searching, the scriptures studies by going to insight world dot org slash studies. And now the message called your smile increases your face value, I know of no greater need today than the need for joy. And if you will allow me, I would add to that, which is a byproduct of joy the presence of enthusiasm for life. And of course, encouragement of one another. If you question that analysis just look around just listen up. Read the news, watch the telecasts, you will find that the morning news paper as well as the evening newscasts focus almost incessantly on bed news. Ours is world of long faces and heavy hearts and no surprise, that seems to be what sells papers that seems to be what it is that makes people switch from channel to channel I've noticed it even affects the weather report notice that we always here, there's going to be a twenty percent chance of showers tomorrow, rather than eighty percent chance of sunshine remarkable. It's going to be partly cloudy, rather than merely clear. What's again, it's the downside of everything. Bottom line is the uplifting encouraging enthusiastic message of life is being eclipsed. By the downside of life tragically. This has slipped into the ranks of the Christians, you notice that we are fast becoming a body of long faced scenes g k Chesterton said it best joy is the gigantic secret of the Christian. Some strange reason. Our joy is fast disappearing. We are all too seldom laughing, especially in the place where laughter what to originate, and that is the place of worship. I mean, this is the one authentic place where laughter belongs. And yet it is seldom the place for laughter is heard I was speaking on that sometime ago when I was up at moody bible institute. In fact, it was several years ago. Now, some of you may recall my reading a letter to you that lay. Lady that was at the conference wrote me. She talked about the importance of sense of humor. Great letter. This lady rights humor has done a lot to help me and my spiritual life. How could I have raised twelve children starting at age thirty two and not have a sense of humor after your talk last night? He said, I was having FILA ship with friends met here. I told him I got married at age thirty one. I didn't worry about getting married. I did leave my future to God's will. But every night, a hung a pair of men's pants on the bed, and knelt down and prayed this prayer father in heaven. Hear my prayer granted, if you can hung a pair of trousers here. Please fill them with a man. Great, great litter. Well, I read that the next week when I got back to the Fullerton church, it didn't fit my sermon. I just rammed it in, because I thought it was such a such a great litter and so happened that we had among others in the worship service of half a family. The mother was home with a sick daughter. But the, the father and older son at the church, and I happen to know the family, and I watched them and the father, just cracked up laughing, but the boy was rather serious. Interestingly, it was several weeks later, I got a letter from the mother remember who hadn't been in the service where I'd read the letter, she said, you're Chuck, I'm wondering if I have something to worry about, I've noticed that our son when he goes to bed at night has this bikini hanging over the the? Riddick story. So I had fun writing said you have nothing to worry about just pray that the bikini will be filled with a ma-. Well, the woman. Oh man. We are in the world that IMF assizes sense of responsibility, a sense of duty, a sense of propriety, how seldom anybody, emphasizes a sense of humor, and yet it is sense of humor that keeps you saying. It is probably a sense of humor, that has changed your home in to hell on earth. It's absence. You're no longer laughing. Life's no longer fun, the enjoyment that enthusiasm and upbeat part of life is gone. If the laughter's gone, I have people right, be rather, regularly, and say, you can stop preaching but don't stop laughing, they'll say years is the only laughter that comes into our home. That is tragic. I don't want my family to remember me as a as a long winded loud mouth preacher who came down hard on life. I want them to remember me, somebody who was fun to be with somebody who through their mother in the pool. And live to tell the story. Throwing her in the pool is not a big deal living to tell a story is a big deal. Trust me. When I was a little boy, the advertisement that was very famous in magazines was the one that rid send me a man who reads member seeing that when you were a child. I no longer believe that's the major Ed for employment. In fact, it isn't for me. Send me one whose attitude is positive, send me one whose face shouts guess it would be great, if that person does read. It would be wonderful if that person is will educated, it would be delightful. That person is an individual with compassion and mercy. But send me one who laughs send me one who laughs at life. Send me one who hasn't gotten under circumstances and lives, there and exists in the Graham reality of how bad and heavy and hard life is send me one who laughs at hardship. Send me one who finds a reason to go on, I have a pastor friend who has a greatest little sign that hangs framed at his office. It says you can't beat fund. It's a great side. You will not find signs like that had pastors studies. Because you usually will not find pastors laughing. Tragic. One man says, one of the highest of human duties is the duty of encouragement. It is easy to laugh at other men's ideals as it is easy to pour cold water on their enthusiasm. It is easy to discourage others. The world is full discourages. We have a Christian duty to end courage, one another many, a time he writes, a word of praise or thanks or pre she -ation or cheer has kept a personal feet. Blessed is the one who speaks such a word. Show me a believer who laughs at life show me, a Christian who regularly takes life by the throat with a great sense of humor, and I'll show you a Christian who has no trouble convincing the people around him or her that Christ can change a life. As valuable as love valuable knowledge is valuable as compassion. All of these things may be nothing is more contagious in life than joy. You are like a magnet that people can't stay away from when you have a spirit of enthusiasm and joy. All of this brings us to this little letter that has been preserved in the New Testament called the letter to the Philippians. It's an easy letter to overlook. First of all, it isn't that long, just one hundred four versus in our English Bible. And it's not that challenging it's not difficult. The logically philosophically. It's one of the simplest of all letters. One New Testament, scholar writes with wisdom when we read Paul's letter, we are not. You're listening to Hartland newsfeed radio. Our live twenty four seven heartland newsfeed dot com. Service use gas for Thursday, may thirtieth twenty nineteen I might Clifford special counsel rubber bowler breaks his silence on the Trump Russia probe. Also on our Thursday rubbed down a look at how restorative Justice for juveniles can work better than jail time. Plus senior hunger. Stubborn problem across the nation. First our top story special counsel Robert Muller in his first public statement about his Russia, probe did not exonerate President Trump. It said explaining why his office never considered it dining him for obstruction of Justice CBS news quotes Muller is saying as set forth in the report after the investigation if we had confidence of the president did not clearly commit a crime. We would have said, so that work as Muller, also indicated he would decline to testify before congress, although he could still be subject to a congressional subpoena. Muller indicated any test. Simile from the office would not go beyond the report, it contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made we chose the words carefully. The work speaks for itself. New Mexico environmentalists say contractors who helped build a nearly mile long wall on private property near the southern border over the weekend should be banned from future business opportunities in the state earlier this week, the mayor of Sunland park vol, the stop work order to halt a private group, from continuing the wall construction citing a lack of proper permits. In addition, the group's eighteen foot steel Bollard wall is taller than city. Ordinances allow Kevin Bixby with a southwest environmental center believes the group's action show disrespect for New Mexico and its laws on, I think more than anything. This is a Trump campaign stunt, his supporters want to demonstrate that he's actually making progress in building the wall, the group, which calls itself, we build the wall. All has promised to finish the project, which began building after a federal judge last week issued a preliminary injunction against construction on sections of the proposed wall. I'm Russ Brown. Crisco BAC legal adviser for we build the wall told the Kirke journal, the sullen park project has the blessing of President Donald Trump. And when a juvenile accused of a crime, making him or her face the victim, take responsibility and make amends works better than posecutor NGO time. Suzanne bother has details on the findings of new report. Oakland area adopted a restorative Justice approach nine years ago, and just the first two years, they diverted one hundred two youth from the criminal, Justice system, giving them a second chance to get back on track. Jenna Crassus with the group community works west which administers the program in Alameda County, she notes that kids who took part were almost forty four percent less likely to commit another crime within twelve months showed an eighteen point four percent. Visionary and Alameda County where the traditional juvenile legal system, showed a thirty two point one percent recidivism rate with the control group, the process works like this, if the DA and the victim agree, the youth accused of a crime goes through a restorative Justice program and takes responsibility for the crime here. She will often face the victim. Agree to make amends, perhaps by going through an anger management program paying the victim back in the case of theft, performing community service. If successful the charges are dropped. The report also found victims having ninety one percents satisfaction rate with the program and not a huge cost savings, for example, the restorative community program in Oakland everage, about forty five hundred dollars a year per case, whereas probation, now media Conti costs about twenty three thousand dollars per year in North Carolina. Mecklenburg county community air pollution monitoring project is highlighting housing discrimination affects the health of predominantly African American residents for the past three years, people living in Charlotte's West End have been wearing sensors that measure air pollution in real time. They've discovered spikes in air pollution after events such as rush hour. Traffic construction and street, paving resident Ronald Ross says historically African American neighborhoods. In Charlotte concentrated on the west side of town, close to railroad lines and factories. Now, these neighborhoods are wedged between major highways and industrial zoning communities are experiencing. Excellent field PD, asthma heart diseases until fourth and a lot of that caused to their breathing leaving an area with poor air quality has been linked to chronic health conditions such as MMA, allergies, and mental health issues and among pregnant women, birth defects, premature, birth and miscarriages. I'm not a Ramleh gone. It is split of a stronger economy. The percent of seniors at risk of going hungry remains stubbornly. High Dam Hyman has all report, according to new report from Feeding America five and a half million US seniors were food insecure in twenty seventeen and the percentage, who were missing meals has remained near the same level since the start of the great recession any crumble with feeding America's says the total number of older folks is rising, but she says, more important may be the fact that many seniors still benefit from low unemployment, who better over actor. And if you are not within the labour market, because you were senior, and you're retired. You're not gonna get the benefit from that opportunity. Or the way the group found nearly eight percent of Indiana seniors were food insecure that slightly higher than the national average. I might Clifford for public new service.

Live from the studios of freedoms, Phoenix, Ernest, Hancock believe me when I say we have a difficult time head about, but if we are to be prepared for it. We must I shed our fear. I stand out fear because I remember. I remember that I am here not because of the path that lies big for me because of the path that nice behind me. I remember that one hundred years, we have these machines and after a century of Lor, I remember that. Ear to ear to ear on declare your independence me, Ernest Hancock in Phoenix Arizona, eight from the full studios for you wanna Phoenix. We got John vest past the past, he been on a couple years ago, he had written a book, and we had talked about, and I said, man, you write another book? You know get your butt on. We'll do it again. Well, he did well, I should've I should've known because he has a budget books. It started in twenty ten this first one, how to build a great future with the pieces from your past, and then in twelve the ten principles of rational living, and then reliving Rashtra work, rational man, like rational. Got well he's got is most most recent book here is. Disrupted, how highly effective people deal with disruptions, and I'm very disruptive. So we're gonna find out how I know you guys are already taking it. No house. You go to deal with Ernie. Well, we're going to talk about his new book here today. And in the second hour, we got Dan Berman libertarian candidate for president. Well, we don't have enough libertarians for president the got just at a mosh threaten and he's going to run. We have Jacob Hornberger from foundation on. He kinda revealed that, that might be his future. Co cash Rodham him for not president on the libertarian thing. And then we got damn Berman. We'll see what's up there. And the third hour temperature. The the liberty adviser you don't give us some economics and what stuff and what's going on? We can do for you, John Paseo. Am I saying that right? John. Hi. Yes. Yes. Speaking out perfectly. All right. Thank you. Thank you. All right now, their new book, you got you had write another book. Okay. Why what's this one about this book is about analyses? So about fifty biographies of people in different centuries. Different professions from businesses Shelley how they dealt they successfully with the fractions in areas of their life, financial disruptions health distractions. Partrol hostess tractions keeps interrupting, I'm sorry. Go ahead. I've had do that for the audience they just knew. Done is to draw lessons that we can apply today the twentieth century. The idea for the book came from a Russian, Jew preneurs. His name was month of recognize about of the story because he was very successful businessman. He was top of the, of the newspapers, great celebrity can't destroy his live within a few years by entering a business. Do the know about he was very good at running railroads on started withstood him on a factory? I waited a few. Yes, you started to lose a huge amount of money he covered the losses from one business to the other. He got sued by shareholders, actually lost everything for the last eight years of his life, he needs in inap- with misery found the story, very Trigon. I wanted to figure out the patterns that lead people to make this kind of mistakes. Okay. What kind of? Mistakes. They get promoted beyond their abilities. They take on something they don't know anything about they think they're smart and something else, and they run for president or something. So I'm just going what's your criteria for them one being successful? And then for them not being successful. Maybe it's just what they wanna do. They wanna lose all their money racing horses or something. I mean, what would your criteria this thing drain human nature when we have successful where healthy, we take it for granted that we know everything that we have the right diet? We have the right lifestyle. We know everything about business about marketing and will happen to my month of the nineteenth century, you'll see the same bathroom today. Football players make money movie stars. They make lousy vestments. They lose everything you seen people starting a business going very successful. And then they lose everything by doing something they know nothing about. And one of the great additions from history. One of the principals in the book is that you should never improvise, UMass know yourself, you have to go back to secretaries know yourself know what you can do know what you shouldn't do. And this book is going to help you that you're going. All right. This is how, you know, you don't know what you're doing. How is that? Well, it's not easy to know your strengths and when people are working now today, they are losing their hope, because they have to deal with all kind of disruptions after all nations, Stamps's. Sometimes we must perspective and you see your you have we have the elections here in Europe, they go, I see the results many people are growing this rates. They don't know where to turn, but behind this trans, you see the great MRIs history, rapid if people doing extremely well by thick and advantage of, of. Of the new situation taking advantage of what? Three one of the great broadens your see Europe and you see these also bark in the United States can aware in Europe. Are you, you're the Netherlands or Denmark, or the Netherlands, I traveled a lot? So I I go through very often. You see this, I think the happens also in the US you see areas with very high employment just half reasons. I Spain or Greece. You have twenty percent on brung to stunt. Then you both are areas and you have barely three percents three percent five percent getting money percent. The no it and what you see a dispatcher of people moving. You'll see people now Ukraine is very poor country, and you see people crossing the border, that's basically an open throws. They go to to Poland on the gopher make enough in hand or at euro per month to make an thousand and then you see people from bullets moving to Norway, and they go from one thousand per month to making three thousand I'm are going to work from Monday to Friday to Norway on. They just. Trifle their Inca on his very, very sad that we have still your of these, these invisible barriers on people. Yes, refused to move. They want they are particular city, but in the street at particular skill at lyric, nice locally, and this is this is fantasy. And this is why you're seeing this, these recurrent Mirage. We half an action people trying to go to the fast strength to, to create patterns that are gone a long time ago, the way the successful today just to move where the into our. Yeah. While we get a lot of that here in the western hemisphere, the or, you know, I don't I don't so. Open borders as libertarian. I'm not about government, having borders on whatever. But this is really going towards nationalism. And I'm wondering if the European Union, it self with the open border policies is going to be able to be sustainable in this with all the other baggage that came along with it. You know, the European Union people revolting against a lot of the stuff that they're advocate. Enforcing down their throat. I like to talk about that more when we come back from the break, but your advocacy is do what, you know, and go wherever what you know, is value and the economics kinda workout, but then you have the country's everybody's leaving from. It's always somebody. He coming in from the bottom of the ladder are the immigrants going to the poorer countries like Ukraine, or they just, skipping going straight to another one. Certainly this is a batter. You see everywhere. I don't think he's new history of the question is to create environment. The vitamin eventually yourself because you're gonna stop Hispanic. Okay. There's lot unpack here. We got three more segments did really great job getting us all caught up on what book is about where we're going. But I think we're gonna have an interesting conversation, which is why you right now, the book, but on, we got another excuse to talk, and we just had your elected, we've been covering and someone that's actually there. Well, we'll get learn to fide. We'll be repa- crimes of the crown by captain. Mark the crown cast the world in shadow and claims to be our guiding light cowards clamor for security from boogeyman and ghost stories. Well, I say these hobgoblins are imaginary. I say those they propped up as our liberators are now subsisting on our bondage. I say there is freedom in the black, and that's exactly where we intend to go. The crown banishes its own officers for exposing its crimes and tortures dissidents to bring of madness it dominates the globe. And swallows the wealth of generations, leaving only blood and extra. The crown calls it piracy to explore frontiers beyond its grasp. So the time has come for us to define the conduct among pirates. I say the crown has trampled our next long enough need decentralized solutions to centralize problems looking for a community of like minded scoundrels, or just want some swag to let the crown know what you think of it.

He's a symptom is not the cause of symptom of people being very happy with she's Asian. I think you seen anything like this the states, but you have to imagine that in towns, you go on the on Saturday on Sunday with a car and they brought the streets block the highway for hours and then the police gaps and the away. And then five minutes later, they're Brock and so basically days in the in the week, where people kind of drives. Okay. Now why would they do that? The purposes attention disruption something who's doing what what's going on? Help us out. You have to see the context because see Europe it mandatory the half yellow vest, if you have a car the know I thought that was awesome. They they're mandated every person, you have to have at least two, I think per car and they said, right fund, you make us we're gonna use the vest. I thought that was great who came up with that it just spontaneous. Okay. So from the nineteen thousand nine hundred seventy or so on your by has one, I have to myself, so they started to complain because the increase the oil, the, the gasoline tax people who are leaving the cantor sites. They depend on their cars. So this all we kind of drive. So this is kinda rose. Everybody has gentlest then the fashion as started to join, and then on, employ people started to Joan, and by the time starts to check the whole theme was two hundred thousand people blocking the country now when down a bit, but status huge movement on the question as if you look at this story perspective and you understand why people are happy because they can barely make leave in what would be the answer. Unfreezing my book, I analyze similar situation, he history for instance, the great success of ruins offensive preneurs. He was not the great. He was great preneurs. He have exacly the saints Thracian. You've seen the sixteen. Century at people starving complaining revolting on what rule is the this is what I think many people fresher do easterly finds a professional five that allows into to move forward by just blocking the streets. You don't get anywhere, but very difficult to convey this message when people are younger, and what do you think they should do kick out? You know, mccrone they did that. Ebay. Eventually, we elections yester- realize that France is America's funding Bryant of twenty two percent. You just have to drive a few hundred kilometers and you go to Germany unemployment is four point nine percents. It will get a job within a date. So the whole famous is really ever done is just the psychological resistance to change anything. The guess wants to stay little town and you don't want to make the effort to, to move on in America this mentality. I think are unknown, because people would guess driving the car and they just call -fornia the go-to text, Texas. Whatever their -tunities, I think, in Europe, this mentality we have. We're still behind. Why don't they purpose of my books of my books unique to show how to get out of the trap? My question is why the mobility here in America? You're right. There's a lot of but I mean, it's not for any other reason, other than whatever personal preference, or what's going to benefit them, most, and you're thinking that, that attitude is here, more or less in America. Because moving from state to state is not quite the same as going from culture, language to different culture language. I, you know, well, I is quite a bit different from Washington state. But I mean you know it's. More common here, but for the same reasons, people stay in the United States or not as they're all out of ex patriots are a lot of people give it up their passports and doing their screw you. I'm over here now or retiring and other locations because it's cheaper for them to live. There's a lot of reasons is are you saying that you think America is more prone to move? And when you save from state to state, the are you quite net from like France to Belgium. Well, I think in America looking for different environment might Drako might mighties phantom, now, the, the environments, different. But you have in Europe, a similar emergence off a low tax restrictions that you have in the US. We have now very, very low. Taxiing Cyprus, Gary Ireland's on you. So the day each of the elections on. On on Sunday last Sunday. Still even after the elections, they would not stop some countries from reducing taxes. So I think he's the same in the US. We have some areas leading from history. Trying to half open markets, half a very fast moving Konami on some other areas where people are clinging to the fast trying to protect official barriers. This is not the way to go. Okay. I'm not for people I imagine airy lines in the lines in the sand. I'm but my, my whole thing is Ben, if you're gonna have a government, the only reason justification for having it is the defense of individual rights. I mean, you know, it's like you show not be bothered. And then it always turns into that promise of the, the king, or the government, or whatever said, we're going to take care of you now have to worry about war and somebody's not gonna come take your stuff. And we, we got you covered and then find out that the very government. They're the ones better taken it. Which is what brings up the Elvis thing. Oh, protect me from what I need to be protected from you. So that's what happens every time to whatever degree it gets so bad to a point that people go. You know, this is too disruptive. I want us disruption. I'm gonna use it in my favor, and I'm going to disrupt somewhere else or somebody else, or something, my favor and they move. So this embracing of this kind of what you're building up to is take this disruption to your manage, go to where the jobs are go to where you can add more value, go to wear go to wear go to wear, but I get the same thing from a lot of my friends and societas and so on. And I'm kinda God man, do I do I have to leave, what if I like it here? What if I got twelve grandchildren within thirty miles of me, you know, them what? So I I'm. How do you answer that? I mean because that's what people are dealing with his family. You know what their customers mile ow to want to be able to stay in. What do I gotta do? Now, of course for your future.

Doc, gone fast, yet another land on his new book, undisrupted disrupted, how highly effective people deal with disruptions. Well, high effective people in Europe. Got be dealing with all kinds of disruption. With migration thing, we got a European Union. He'll ask John John, you know, help me out with the general mood. Did you expect it to go? So euro skeptic nationalistic, this European Union concept of borderless everything kind of been pushed back on the dick spec, such a pushback. Is it good? What your opinion on, you know, it should be a European Union? If there wasn't what would they agreements, be help us out with an understanding what's going on there? You're to get into the mood, and we don't have, you know, moody you have Lemper country or area and I like to compare. Yes bravely, because I don't think Americans are familiar with this, you compare France rhesus where you have traditional very centralized country. We've very large companies on very lethal permission and you compare these rates with Austria, which is they, they opposite of the spectrum where you have a relatively small government, reducing taxes day would have new elections in in September. I don't opposite, the mentality after is very much favor of Montaigne in knowing me Gration. They want to keep the country. They went to people, but people with degrees, people, we have who's going to really increase the industrial entrepreneurial cannery. Why France, totally opposite? When you're talking about general moods. Europe, depending on which area goes completely different way. Let me ask that question, you know, Austria, France, France is, is that the government was it the politicians that were. Yeah, we're going to be melting. Pot of everybody in, you're welcome. And come come come come come and take over the streets and sleep on the sidewalks. And, you know, we don't care and bring it on. Or was it? The people were just in favor of that, or tolerant of it. And now they're not I'm, I'm wondering, you know, this attitude this, this mentality this policy came from where was it from the people or somebody imposed it on? History. Because what you see when you look at France, you're American, you look Franjie people with different religious on different cultures. You getting and it's forty prescient that these French people, but these are French people, they being they're ready for fifty sixty years. And they have a French fuss for so the idea that you'll have Europe as single couch like my half, either most hunting, the US is not very realistic Utah. Previously about moving from one year to the other. You have to realize, people, many, people, your many people speak, two languages in the US, many people speak Spanish on the move easily to Mexico, so we don't have these Spro the Brian France with gentle vastly. In other areas. He's Pearl of, of industrial development that you say, hi, employment. They sell out the regulations and this has to be proof. And I think people are, are really. Align with that. But the problem is, if you will have been your whole life holding to job making a thousand dollars per month. He's very table to change. You have the sprout in my in literally about six million people on these very, very difficult to get away from. Well, I'm wondering you know, in industrial, well, you look at Germany. You're saying they're five percent unemployment. And now that's like full employment. And they're trying to direct what they want or benefits them across all of Europe. When you got twenty something percent unemployment in Spain. I remember it was kind of, like anybody under thirty unemployment was like twenty five thirty percent. I last time I checked ridiculous. I had, you know, a wealthy investor a friend of mine sitting at a brunch and he goes like this. He says, when all the pigs were going, you know, the Portugal, Italy Greece spe and he goes. Let me tell you what you see the salt shaker here, Portugal. Yeah. You see this sugar container thing here, and that's Greece. See this. He goes, but the table that Spain, he goes when the table goes when Spain goes, it's over and I don't give a crap, what Germany says or does. And whatever policy they have when the economy of Spain really, then you had after after we had this discussion is when the Catalonia thing happened, and so I'm looking at this, and you have disruptions inside countries are having civil war setting up. You got. So when you say these people are moving in, and their, their French. Well, we got you'll NT. We got the left liberal. We've got the medium whatever here in America. We understand the schisms a how even in one country there can be differing opinions. So my question is in somewhere like, France, where they're going more entitlements more monetary. Spending by the government on the tax payer raising taxes. No end in sight. It's all for global warming. We're going to save the planet and that's why we're taking your money, pinky swear and the people start to resist. I'm wondering what their base attitude towards immigration is does the yellow jackets are like get these immigrants out, or is that even an issue. Yet gets they're not really a movement. It's just the people are just these jello vest on they just go on the road, but they just know ideology behind. I'm what you see interviews on TV and you see people. They have these boards they show on TV. They shoot the directions. I'm one half additional spending. I want to have fewer taxes. I want to have free jobs, whatever. So they snapping behind just just a mess that good movement. I mean, I feel like career square when I saw era spring going on, if people exactly like that just pissed off. We are dissatisfied and who's in charge not. You could just freaking nut, you. We need something, some whatever not you. Well, then you go here, somebody jumping in front of the parade, and they go. Yes. If movement is out now, ours, we are the Muslim Brotherhood. I mean, you know, so I'm going is somebody trying to jump in front of the yellow jackets and say you see all these people pissed off. Well, we. Represent them and we need to whatever. So I'm more. I think it's better just a general just pissed off. Not, you know, worry about, you know, who comes out after that. But when somebody comes up and says, yes, it's about this, and we're in charge, then I start going got hijack, you know what I mean? They tried to hijack the movement from right left. You might know the but in France. Coming Sparky's route around nine percent, now they repeatedly tried to hijack the, the failed completely on the saying goes for the rights. It doesn't work is just people are happy. They are happy in all directions. It's very similar to what happened in the UK, because you seem that UK the Brexit story, which she said in ago, need up never ends so ready going on for three years.
