"But the morale is always knew that she had special gifts and she has built following and business by taking her unique intuition and her skill for tarot healing and applying it to personal development. Today i talk with the entrepreneur an instagram star about where her intuition has led her and how she's building an empire that is bigger than any one platform. Thank you so much for doing this. Of course thank you for having read. Would you take me back to the first moment in your life when you knew that you had these gifts the earliest memory that i have to be around maybe six seven eight years though very very young essentially when i first discovered playing cards or tarot in general would i would do is. I had this bad habit of just bringing toys to school. Right and one of those things would be playing cards and i didn't grow up particularly with a family that was familiar with devastation. Tarot you're going to let the culture we have. The i wasn't raised around any of that so i don't know where i had the antics of old. Let me bring these cards to school. Start reading kids in people. I would just make things up in my mind. The hearts would be loved. The clubs would be locked. The spades would be bad luck and literally. I'm a little bored at lunchtime negotiating. Hey you want this. Reading lemme exchange for a putting or some chips. You know. that's my earliest memory of doing that. Now anything actually more poignant than that would be in high school. When i would re poems again during lunchtime or i would bring the cars and the memory would be just done having very impactful face because you know i went to school. Where was predominantly latinos. In so i was reading dominicans. Puerto ricans colombians. What have you and so within the culture you have people that go to readers and

Now it was impossible to buy a motorcycle twenty years ago. And now. Now motorcycle for two hundred dollars. Yeah. So it's we growing yes. For sure in terms of the economy, I think the only way that we can actually change. The future of our country is if is if we educate ourselves and if we get making decisions not because somebody Spaniard to do it but in terms of the economy yet definitely is growing and has grown a lot. That guy came here to work for you in two thousand thirteen. And I can tell the difference between then and now there was only one house Arana's in the neighborhood that the officers. And two full of house. For anybody. I worked together in a call center. So the. Changed so much in ten years. It looks like a complete different place. Yeah. If we put ourselves in perspective, you're GonNa see the US a human being you have grown a lot that you lived in a two bedroom house with all your family today you live in a really nice is and you know we're growing we're all growing So yeah, definitely things can get better in time. So so this corruption isn't treating you guys to poorly then like gotta. Keep getting better under all this. Uh South. For the government yeah we're not trapped Under the government's thumb, right?

But I mean, you can you can lie on ads. I mean. As far as checking the box in the voting booth or pressing the button on the electric device. I mean I'm assuming you could as a teacher still vote forever you want maybe I'm just need. Government controls everything I tell you. Like if they want to get all the employees, the files from the employees in the Ministry of Education. They just into us for that will give it to them. So they can have an idea with teachers is different. Mike Muslims still support the government now some of them would not. And, the government has not so much power over them. Because they were not hired by the government, they had to go to a contest and they need to apply and then need to show that they're capable of teaching and if they get higher, it's GonNa luck top your your contract.

There's a bigger disparity than there is in the Dominican. So the Dominican Republic, you have middle class the. High middle class lower middle class. In, Haiti. Is. Only showing the worst part of.

"But if you look at say like Abloh, Escobar like that guy built a lot of schools in his area, he did a lot of development. He did a lot of stuff like that like. You think it's actually a problem right now as a developing country. Do you think like there is some good that comes out of all this drug money that comes into our politics. Will when you put it that way yes. You can see that there's something good coming out of the however the harm being done to society. And some other societies bigger than that were getting. US You can walk around here in a call back in when I came here when I came to live here and work for you. For example, there wasn't so many addicts in the Gif you work around now you will see a lot of people. Like a lot of junk is industry young people. So drop Monica be good for bill to build things, but still it harms a lot. Yeah. So do you think it'll? Go Away. I mean I know there's been a lot of problems in the past they like Las Vegas Las, Vegas, a town that was built on crime and You know they eventually all kind of legitimize themselves and Las Vegas? Is I mean I don't WanNa say it's the best running place in the world but like. You know they have. They have their shit together compared to the Dominican Republic right. So I. Could move in twenty years or fifty years towards a more legitimate kind of government. It would depend if people continue to make their choices on the election day like if you like what's the point of having a democracy few by you said it. Yeah like as long as they keep people paying people to vote nothing is going to change. The only way that is going to change thins is if you go and vote for the person that you think is GonNa do a better job and if that person doesn't do a good job, then you vote against the selection. Of our country is not only about politicians I think. Mindset of Dominicans is not. Is. Not a good mindset to to move forward from somebody dense. What about political protests riots? So like right now, the United States has a law of riots going on over what's going on with police brutality towards black people and it seems probable that they're gonNA make some serious changes in future towards the way the police do you think if we had riots and Do you think if we had more political protests people change things? Probably, as long as during a pay by the opposition or other. Yeah it's hard. I tell you story I was studying the the main public university of Minnesota Republican West. The oldest one? Is the only public university we have in the country. So all these the university has a lot of or Guinea stations across student organizations, right so they will be protesting all the time young fan I stopped protesting myself because they realized that the main guy of one of the organizations. Had Been in the university for twenty years. He didn't graduate because anytime there was a practice, their government will pay money so they can shut their mouth up. So, he was making leaving out of that. And when you see that kind of thing is happening it kinds of make you helpless about. Changing the future of the country. For example, we have talked before about how people in a car you go around and use it people doing nothing all day like playing domino are like doing wasting their time they give if Dominica's don't change if we don't change our mindset durst nothing that is gonNa be better in time or right now..

"So we're all good. I can't see you guys you guys. If your videos offer something right now I can see John and I can see myself I can't see you you can't see me I can see me but not either of you I'll try to figure that out like we'll just keep going with the for for now because it has been a little bit of a lull. I'll try to figure out if there's anything I can do on my end you're set your audio is not great. You want us to reset or something or do you want to just keep going like this? Well audio will be good on on this end. You can hear me okay yeah. Why don't you try to fix that and we'll finish your story and I'm not sure if it's zoom issue for my connective tissue but I'll try to figure it out going. All right. So this guy. He's putting money into all of the little campaigns and he got in trouble for defrauding the bank was joined by name tour. Intern and it is three billion dollars. Two Billion Dollars remember as big as fraud of Latin America. Yes a day. Yes and it's like if you Google this guy's name, the related searches are the same. Guy Charles Ponzi who invented the Ponzi Scheme Bernie made off like this guy is an international fraud superstar. This isn't just some some small. Drug dealer were with with one hundred kilos of cocaine. This guy defrauded. Billions out of the country billions and billions of dollars. Yeah and still today as one of the reaches of the many sound can Latin America. He's. One of the biggest problems of our country not consequences of doing things. That he was sentenced to I think it was fifteen years in jail. but the money that he took away from people, it wasn't taken away from him. He kept the money went to jail that he got the money. so that kind of creates. I'm sorry, an environment of corruption. Because corruption is not only public in republic is also private. And the private corruption started with this particular guy. So, if you have nothing ability of of of being reach one day in your offer to defraud bank and you would do fifty years in jail but you have two hundred, million dollars or two hundred, million dollars, would you do it or not? You do it for sure because if you have money as well, you can leave the Gel like if you're fucking kin. You can have A. You have a hookah hawkers comment. Can leave the same way that you live outside. Or better. Or we are. Probably better. For example, there was a guy running for senator in I. Think It was twenty, two, thousand eight. into south of the country. A couple of years a couple of months effort at who was accused of being the biggest drug dealer of the Dominican Republic he was. Extradited to the United States he did some time in jail over there his. Bowling I got a question for you, John. I understand that there's kind of a problem with drugs with drug dealers and drug launderers in the politics..

"And is affecting the election is affecting the democracies affecting the economy as well. There's one more thing I want to say before you ask a question day. Oh. Yeah. Go for it. So if you go to Canada or the United States England basically any respectable democracy I guess I mean I'm not sure people are respecting democracy someone's. Quest okay. Okay. All right. Maybe bachelor it's like relatively respectable relatives respectable. So let's say we're talking about Republicans and Democrats I could tell you. Okay Republicans are generally pro gun. They're generally not for abortion. Yes. Generally for lower taxes, I can tell you liberals are generally pro-choice generally for social systems probably want to expand Medicare probably want to expand money spending on schools and stuff. They have different policies in different ideas that they represent the Dominican Republic. That's not true. So first of all parties are PRD E. L.. P. R. N., they all stay. All sound exactly the same all the colors they use it the same and they actually campaign across platforms. So you can have the senator from one campaign with from one party campaigning with the mayor from another party and. Third Party and they will all get together because that gives them the biggest chance of winning. And so wherever the money goes in a certain town, it's they will go out together and they will. They will campaign because that will give them the biggest chance of winning campaign across party lines, which is unheard of like can you imagine if ABC was campaigning Ted Cruz or something I mean to be like I mean barring that specific example that actually does sound kind of cool that there isn't dislike hard line party tribalism tribalism happening there. Trump, it's not happening because they are looking for like partisan politics. It's happening because options. So if like John, you're in the Dominican Republic, what are the policies of your? The same must be able to your beer am is basically the same. There's not an established difference between one and the other. So that's what I was GONNA is there any? Is there any kind of white nights in this in on the on the ticket that you can vote for? Is there anybody that you would say isn't corrupt? Is there anybody that people are happy to support who are knowledgeable? Guy. Are. You going to say register? He'll. No I was GONNA. Talk, about memorial. Okay well, can you talk about register? He'll I because he's Lorenza he's the grandson of a dictator. Yeah. The Guy who arouses Dominican Republic for like thirty or thirty five years. Like a brutal dictator, a really bad one killed a lot of people in here into the miniature that was really terrible time of our country. So He Guy. He's not. He's not popular. And for some reason, people don't like him which was this. Guillermo Marino. and. Why do you say? Well because he's into the kind of politics that they're implementing Cuba or Venezuela. In this kind of thing. He's a socialist. So people don't like the Dominican Republic detente. Don't not even if they have a modern concept of socialism like socialism socialism, it doesn't matter. Whether you put it I'm against socialism because it means that you have to give your money to somebody else who is not doing anything. And it also happens in capitalism but. It's is less likely to happen, right? So, this guy has really good projects for the contrary he he's a really straight guy. He's never been accused of corruption. He's respectable lawyer of the Dominican Republic but nobody likes him. So he cannot get any more popular because home doesn't sell electoral for example, who is the institution that runs the election so this country. All the money that goes to a campaign. Is Space through the taxes that we all pay. So depending on the amount of voters that you've got..

It's I'm going to try to get a picture or a video. Popular he gets paid a lot of money. So you can see what he does, but he basically goes around all over town to win the same thing once and over. And does a really popular thin. The politicians do here because it creates the impression that you have more people warning you that. Your opponent, Right But Mike duggan about the advertisement a UC. On. Ads. I recently found out I work I don't work. I go to a radio show twice a week. I do it for fun I like it I like the radio so. Recently realized that. They are getting paid by the government. These years they have made like three hundred, thousand dollars. That's like seven thousand dollars. But. The funny part is that this is not being a. Nobody from the radio show is getting the money. The money's being get by somebody that doesn't even live in South Korea. So in that same list, we found out that there are two radio shows getting paid with the government for advertisement and the radio station that they put into the forum to get the. To get the contract, it doesn't exist Government. Just paying people free ten in that is on advertisement but they use giving money away to somebody who supported them for the election, for example. So. You're working in radio station Have you ever been pressured to say something or not say something I do it for fun. I don't get any money just because of that reason because whenever you get money from somebody to. Either I search, say something positive about them. Then you have a you compromise yourself. Then, you wouldn't be able to say whatever you want when I go into radio show say anything about anybody I want. Him Monte for like if I money for Mike, for example, if he wants to advertise. The shirty that something different. But if if I give 'em money from a politician. just to mention him any tapped like twice during the program. Then it means that I cannot say anything negative about this person. And experience I can tell you like everybody has something to say here in the mini Republicans. Especially, they're Bala Titians.

Where are they getting all the money because they're paying off the media they're paying off individual voters are spending all this money. So what are what are they doing to get all this money? Like what's? Question Oh a lot of a lot of it comes from taxes. We have an insanely high tax radio, eighteen percent sales tax on everything everything that comes into the country. They have a fifty percent tax on it if it's worth the return of dollars and then there's a lot of black money that nobody wants to talk about so. There is a guy right now his name is detective Angel Martinez and he is a private detective in the United States. Worked with. Da. FBI. Before actually. So, anyways, this guy. I mean imagine how he's got fifty thousand followers on Youtube or something, but he is running. Like a series of youtube videos right now it's detective angel it's in Spanish. So if you don't speak Spanish, you're not gonNA. What he says that one party here is not really party it's a drug cartel and he says he has the names of thirty seven members of the party who are running for mayor who are running for. Senator or running for deputy like all these different positions and he says, they're basically funneling money into party to try and get a Narko friendly president in the in the Dominican White House in the palace of President so that they can use the Dominican Republic as like an open door to send drugs to the rest of the world. And They call it the breach. Internationally. The Dominican is referred to as bridge because so many drugs go through here. And so this guy, if you ask people who support him, they are no that the liar he's a charlatan that's complete bullshit. He's being paid by the opposition. Okay. Fine like maybe he's be paid by opposite talk about one or two people but there's thirty seven people that he's named. So what kind of proof does he have? What's his evidence for this? So he will throw up like a news article about a Dominican getting deported from the United States and he'll like because you know all the trials in the US are public public. Record. So he'll be like look this guy's name is in is in the public record of this he here's a picture of him. He got caught with ninety one kilos of heroin and look here he is now running for senator.

On testing on the equipment and they realized that it was just a matter of date testing, properly the equipment before the election started. So, what happened was like you would go to vote for one party this is the municipal election. So this for like mayor and what re register and the smalltime local elections, right? Councils. Yes. So you'd go to vote and only some of the possible people free to vote for would show up not everyone from every party would show up. Okay.

Oh, I know about that. Flying helicopters. Somebody's trying to sit in your lap and all. Ear blowing your here games. Yeah. Big about it, actually helicopter. That's not a good one. Good to pick the pilot. On that note. So good news guys. Yes, good news. David Ortiz that apparently him getting shot. Moses a couple of weeks ago now week. At least we've been at least a week. David Ortiz was not the target of I mean, what are we going to call it a murder attempt, but rather a case of mistaken identity identity easy for me to say Dominican Republic. Attorney General John, Elaine Rodriguez said the target was actually a friend of teases, who was sitting at the same table as him Rodriguez named as a member of Mexico's Gulf cartel. As the mastermind behind the shooting. So David was not the target but rather wrong place wrong time. Yeah, sounds that mining. That story to get Rex. Six foot five three hundred pound dark skinned. Dominicans don't those on his anything? I think the guy that he was hanging around had sort of kind kinda saying, look white pants deal, and he was, obviously a Chiba is from what I understand. And. Why they sent the hitman out the door was real, as like I'm not putting my voice. You're not dragging me into this man when I was reading I was reading up on it. They said to do was supposedly snatcher some in Ortiz happened just being away. I don't know why too, and I don't know either key. But here's what I'll say if this the shooter was somebody who came into this place and just randomly started from a distance, you know, pop pop and caught David Ortiz, different though, badge shot. Okay. David Ortiz is one of the most famous Dominicans title. Title. To think he's one guy, and he's another allegedly allegedly just from what I gathered the photo of the target was blurry. It had it wasn't clear. They didn't have a clear what however they took the picture of, of the target, the intended target, the intended target. It was not clear, and they gave it to this gentlemen, twenty five year old guy and his crew in. He took it looked at on the first person to white pants that was huge. In popping other guy was supposed to be on the other side. The other guy was a target that was only other side. That's the story now, do you believe it is one thing, but that was what it's it? I've seen a lot of movies, and it doesn't mean that movies are always right. But there are so many times where the guy that was the target doesn't get. Popped pop. Thank you. And then the guy that ordered its goes to the other authorities and says, look, you're not putting me in on this. I'll give you a couple of guys, but you're not taking me out. You're not gonna make it look like I was trying to get the most famous person in town. It cetera et cetera et cetera. There's just there's other reports that have not been corroborated. So I'm not going to repeat them on the air got about what happened in the hospital when people started to arrive there just seems that that this was it's David Ortiz. Okay. This is not somebody. That was a guy that played a major league baseball games. This is David Ortiz in the DR who got shot at point blank range. Yeah. Okay. I'm not buying the, the idea that he was mistaken identity but I will not without proper reporting from a reputable news source. Right. Go into the details. Mind. And from Jorges silence. And he was, obviously a Chiba. I mean it's just it's just amazing. He's just like going. Nope. I'm not he's not even looking at us. He doesn't want any part of this conversation. And I think because of the other reports that are out there. He might be wise..

"dominicans" Discussed on WBSM 1420

"Car. Remember? When. George H W Bush pick all that grief for not knowing about the bar code was was that. Apparently that was a bum rap. Anyway. Was was that anymore tone-deaf than what you just heard Nancy Pelosi say about the Costco, admissions. The admissions Faye. Is that anything like a membership? Can you buy tickets online in advance? How other touchy Shay? There are a lot of people in the fly over country. Madam speaker who who go to Costco, or Sam's Club every week believe it or not. They don't drink. Johnny walker. Blue either eight four four five hundred forty two forty two were here on we're on Newsmax this hour, again, we're gonna we're gonna we're to do. I wanted to mention a couple of local stories here in Massachusetts issues. Usually when we do our local hour, but I did want to mention just for the Massachusetts and New Hampshire crowd that there is a story in my newspaper today, the Boston Herald weld malls, right cross Bill weld was the governor of Massachusetts in the he was elected in the wake of the Mike Dukakis Massachusetts miracle, which was actually a Massachusetts catastrophe. And he he ran he was reelected in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and since then he's just been kind of flailing away at various. Occupations. He's a he's a lawyer right now. And he ran for vice president on the libertarian ticket. Basically try to stop Donald Trump just the drain enough Republican votes away to elect Hillary Clinton. And this is a guy who endorsed I think he endorsed Kerry in two thousand four even though he's a Republican endorsed Obama in two thousand eight even though he's a Republican, and he basically campaign for Hillary and twenty six even though he's a Republican. So now he's going to be at the he's going up to was seen an slums and some college their politics and eggs series that they sponsor with the New England council on February fifteenth. So I keep the he'll be serious. There's there's no way that can be serious eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. So there's another story in the paper today. Bakers budget includes taxes on e cigs and opioids. So once again, he's going after prescription opioids is if that's the that's what's killing most people in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and elsewhere around the country. I mean, there is a problem. Obviously. In a lot of people got hooked on prescription. Opioids back in the day when they were right easy to get and they were being prescribed, you know, pretty much at at will of physicians were given them out all the time. But that's not the way it is any more. Most most people are dying of drug overdoses are dying of Bentonville and heroin overdoses, and the majority of the drug dealers in in this part of the country anyway are illegal alien Dominicans. And that's according to statistics from the Boston. The Boston police department, which is run by very liberal Democrat mayor who said that he's gonna use city hall as a sanctuary of they'd be his own office. So his own police department says it's illegal alien drug dealers. And Charlie Baker won't is committed to cracking. Down on giving driver's licenses to to these these illegal alien fennel dealers. He claims he's doing something. But it's nothing compared to what New Hampshire is doing New Hampshire is pretty much put an end to legal aliens getting driver's licenses. They've they've they they don't they don't do racial profiling, they do document profiling if you've got a if you've got a Puerto Rican birth certificate, and you're forty years old and you're looking for your first, driver's license. You're probably not a Puerto Rican. A Puerto Rican is an American and most Americans get driver's licenses when they're sixteen as we all know are seventeen at the latest. So that's the way they go after amend and Charlie Baker refuses to do. So. And by the way, I just want to give you something else here. We're we're going to go back to what talking about the national topics. That's worth news Matt with Newsmax this hour, but I have a list of the new taxes that have been proposed here in Massachusetts or passed in some cases in the last. Couple of months and remind me again, the party affiliation of our governor. What democrat how many think he's a democrat? Is a Republican a Republican in name only in just over a month. The following taxes have been proposed by leaders on beacon hill new taxes on short term rental rentals like Airbnb passed and signed into law a fifty percent increase of the real estate deeds stocks, and again, that's the fight climate change because the weather was so overpowering -ly warm last weekend, right? An unconstitutional graduated income tax on high earners, which was thrown out by the supreme court last year before could go on the ballot. Now that's being proposed again, recreational marijuana tax when the voters passed that the tax was supposed to be thirteen percent. Now, it's twenty plus percent expansion of the cigarette. Excise tax the e cigarettes and vapor products. And and you say, oh, okay. Well, I don't smoke doesn't bother me. Okay. How about this? You buy stuff on the internet. They want an internet sales tax applying the sales tax to online marketplaces like Amazon and EBay. The proposing a fifteen percent tax on prescription opioid painkillers. Why don't we put a tax on federal how about that? Oh, I would discriminate against the illegal alien community higher taxes on rideshare services. Like Uber left. You use Ober you use left. They're coming after you. And of course, the carbon tax as as governor sununu said the carbon tax is only Republicans create create global warming and carbon. So it's a it's a good tax eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. There are we hearing. Now, we'll check at eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two eight six zero says, I'm in Connecticut. But wishing I could move to New Hampshire, but why do I have to keep trying to escape? The democrat plague. That's a very good question. It's you know. How many places can you run to? And you know, I mean New Hampshire used to be a safe place to run too. But now New Hampshire is purple. And it's endanger of flip and blue. Sununu was the I think the last statewide Republican officeholder, you know, that you have to to what Democrats senators, even though, you know, at least one of them was elected because of the the the lenient voting laws that allowed college students to vote, but the fact is they the Democrats seen their opportunities and they took him as Senator Plunkett of Tammany hall used to say eight four four five hundred forty two forty two. We're going to take some calls when we come back. Whether you want to talk about the local scene with the taxes and governor wealth, and then we'll also we've got a lot of work sound cuts to play as well. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. I'm Howie Carr. Are.
